PHOTO BY SUSANNE MILLER, USFWS.Feds may be muzzling scientist over Arctic research / July 30, 2011 / Bob Berwyn / SUMMIT COUNTY — Last summer’s Deepwater Horizon oil-drilling disaster in the Gulf of Mexico clearly showed the conflict between science, energy policy and politics, and the looming battle over drilling in Arctic waters will be no different, as a watchdog group claims that federal scientists are being muzzled and harassed over their efforts to disclose potential impacts of energy development in the fragile Arctic marine environment.

Are We Prepared as World Population is Set to Breach 7 Billion Soon? / IB Times | July 31, 2011 / The numbers are drastically larger than anything the earth has experienced before - and scientists are very concerned about the impact this surplus of humans will have on the world.

"In real-world practice, CAD increases the chances of being unnecessarily called back for further testing because of false-positive results without clear benefits to women,” said Joshua Fenton, assistant professor in the UC Davis Department of Family and Community Medicine. “Breast cancers were detected at a similar stage and size regardless of whether or not radiologists used CAD."

Depending on tastes and lifestyle, raw foodism can include a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, spouts and nuts and even eggs, fish and even non-pasteurized dairy products. (Courtesy of Silvana Frammartino of Impulse Photography)Raw food movement has long roots / JOANNE RICHARD / JULY 27, 2011 / TorontoSun / Think raw food is a hot trend? Guess again. Initially developed in Switzerland at the end of the 19th century by Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner, the inventor of muesli, he learned that turning down the heat, turns up the flavour. Raw food proponents say a nutrient dense diet of 75% not only satiates appetites but will also help prevent disease, slow down aging, boost energy and mental well being. Read more...

Organizers say marijuana has natural healing power / Alexandra Swanberg | New Mexico Daily Lobo / 07/25/11 / “It’s all about natural healing, and the pharmaceutical (companies) don’t want us to know about that because it’s cheap — you can grow it in your closet or backyard, and you can heal yourself,” Kushmor said. “Why take the other drugs that the pharmaceutical drug companies are pushing on us that kill thousands of people every year? How many people does marijuana kill? Zero.” Read more...

Gluten Free: What Does it Mean? / MICHAEL BROMBERG / JULY 26, 2011 / The BQB / If people actually took a bit of time to learn about what foods they are putting in their bodies and what it means to be “healthy,” then perhaps purchasing habits would be quite different.

Excessive consumption of fat, sugar, and processed foods is a leading cause of obesity, diabetes, and related illnesses.Uncle Sam, Diet Dictator? / Michael Tennant / 25 July 2011 / New American / Rather than subsidizing the production of unhealthful foods, we should turn the tables and tax things like soda, French fries, doughnuts and hyperprocessed snacks.

The history of cocaineCocaine: The evolution of the once 'wonder' drug / Caleb Hellerman / CNN / July 22, 2011 / Long before drug cartels, crack wars and TV shows about addiction, cocaine was promoted as a wonder drug, sold as a cure-all and praised by some of the greatest minds in medical history, including Sigmund Freud and the pioneering surgeon William Halsted. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Cocaine, like most all chemical drugs, has side effects. As a natural plant its effects are much more subtle yet still powerful, without the severe challenges of the concentrate. In very minute quantities, cocaine can be medicinal, yet even with small "pin lines" used, this can become an addiction quickly, as the body utilizes cocaine to zap adrenaline glands, depleting the body while causing more problems long term than solutions.

Breastfeeding may help protect against asthma symptoms such as wheezing and coughing in young children, a study by researchers in the Netherlands suggests. (Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times)Asthma risk appears lower in breastfed babies / Marissa Cevallos / HealthKey LATimes / July 25, 2011 / Breastfeeding has a long list of demonstrated benefits, including a lower risk of diarrhea, skin rash, respiratory infections and a type of deadly gastrointestinal disease.

Read more...

The Power of Spiritual Healing / Jill Magso / Yahoo! / Jul 21, 2011 / Spiritual healing might probably appear to be a bit old fashioned during this advancing world of technology but still there are several people seeking balance, peace and healing in life which traditional medicines and treatments don't seem to provide. The invisible and higher power of God or the higher source and its connection to the diving healing process cannot be just ignored by people. Read more...

The Process of Spiritual Healing / Jill Magso / Yahoo! / Jul 21, 2011 / Diseases of the mind and body need to be treated in time or they could lead to very serious imbalances and complications in the future.

States enact record wave of anti-abortion laws / DAVID CRARY 07-22-2011 / Associated Press / The late-term bans — based on the premise that fetuses at that stage can feel pain, a view that has been disputed — are among a record wave of more than 80 restrictions aimed at reducing access to abortion, all of them approved so far this year in state legislatures. Other measures expand pre-abortion counseling requirements, ban abortion coverage in new insurance exchanges, and subject abortion clinics to tough new regulations. Read more...

“Bath Salts” Illegal in Illinois, New Law / The State Column | July 23, 2011 / Illinois is the 11th state in the U.S. to ban the drug methylenedioxypyrovalerone, or MDPV, which had been available at tobacco shops and convenience stores.

Brine-Enhanced Meat Labels Announced / 23 July 2011 / SmartAboutHealth / Although customers have frequently complained about the injections, the USDA says it is now clear that companies are potentially misleading consumers with deceptive labeling.

Hybrid Animal-Human Experiments Face Ethical Concern / The State Column | Saturday, July 23, 2011 / Scientific advantages continue to push the limit on experiment, always trying to find the best model. In Britain, the law forbids any experiments involving combining human cells into the great ape family. But alternatively, in China, there have been cases of combining human stem cells with goats. Currently, American scientists are considering putting human brain cells into mice. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENTS: As the "human model" [us] continues to mutate in its quest for normalcy, look where we are before criticizing animal-human experiments... at least get an understanding. What are the long term causes and effects? Answering this alone should highly limit these "experiments" before ANY possibility of long term problems. Avoid a catastrophe? The scientists on this "project" might be unemployed for a while, like many of the rest of us, "God forbid"... Hm...

House Mouse With Glove Rama via Wikimedia CommonsSome Mice Have Become Immune to Poison Through Natural but Highly Unusual Evolution / Dan Nosowitz / 07.22.2011 / Popular Science / This kind of evolution, in which hybridization produces a beneficial genetic makeup, is called horizontal gene transfer. It's very different from the usual style of evolution, in which beneficial mutations are passed on to the next generation, and has actually never been observed before in any complex animal. Read more...

New rules urged on hybrid animal-human experiments / Ben Hirschler LONDON | Jul 21, 2011 (Reuters) - Scientific experiments that insert human genes or cells into animals need new rules to ensure they are ethically acceptable and do not lead to the creation of "monsters," a group of leading British researchers said on Friday.

James Murdoch went after doctor who raised vaccine concerns / MICHAEL WAGNITZ | July 21, 2011 / Here’s the part of the story we didn’t get. Brian Deer is the reporter who through the Sunday Times of London, managed by James Murdoch, was hired to destroy Wakefield. James Murdoch is on the board of the company that makes the MMR vaccine. Deer was both the journalist writing on Wakefield and the person to bring a case of “fitness to practice medicine” to the British General Medical Council, resulting in Wakefield losing his license. Parents whose children were examined by Wakefield were denied the right to testify on his behalf. Read more...

Going into hospital far riskier than flying: WHO / Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA | Thu Jul 21, 2011 / (Reuters) - "If you were admitted to hospital tomorrow in any country... your chances of being subjected to an error in your care would be something like 1 in 10. Your chances of dying due to an error in health care would be 1 in 300," Liam Donaldson, the WHO's newly appointed envoy for patient safety, told a news briefing. Read more...

Gelatin SquareGelatin Made from Humans — Vegan? / Zachary Shahan / July 19, 2011 / eatdrinkbetter / Aside from the natural repulsiveness of the idea, this also makes me wonder (yet again) if we are going too far with our scientific manipulation, and what sort of unexpected consequences could result.

Preventive Medical Center of Marin Asks: Got (too much) Milk? / Marin, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) / July 17, 2011 / SFGate / Dr. Rosenbaum noted, "High calcium intake may backfire and increase the risk of fractures. High doses of calcium can actually reduce bone remodeling or reshaping which is necessary for the maintenance of strong bones. Bone that is not remodeled can become brittle over time and becomes more prone to fractures. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: High levels of protein in cow's milk along with calcium that is not easily assimilable by humans, has actually contributed to osteoporosis, a disease associated with calcium deficiency in humans. Take heed: Too much milk can actually be dangerous to your health. Coconut, soy, and/or almond milks, now available in most areas, are much preferable to animal sourced milks.

Ditch the chips, grab an apple / July 16, 2011 | Tamara Dietrich / DailyPress / In this day and age, with information flowing in from every outlet of every home, are we expected to believe there are people who don't grasp the relationship between what they put in their mouth — and how much — and why they haven't seen anything south of their belly button in 10 years? Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: Food addiction can be harder to contain than illegal drugs, especially when wholesome, organic foods are unaffordable or unavailable. With widespread proliferation of junk foods and huge amounts of saturated fats from animal products, common sense indicates avoiding these is the key. Yet society supports this industry abuse, with huge lobbying efforts to suppress the truth through media, PAC [Political Action Committees] agenda, and other ways of spreading this epidemic. Today's theme: Eat well to stay well...

Is obesity grounds for taking away a child? Hopkins doctor says state can intervene to protect a child from harm, but removal should be a last resort / Margaret Moon / July 16, 2011 / The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act defines abuse and neglect as: "at a minimum, any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker, which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation, or an act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm." Read more...

Dietician fights child obesity with Kids Cafe / Jul. 16, 2011 / coloradoan / "There is a misconception that people should be choosing healthy foods because there's so much education out there," Puckett said.

On Nutrition: Diet for a princess / Barbara Quinn / McClatchy-Tribune / Grand Forks Herald / July 16, 2011 / Women are designed differently from men and have unique health needs, experts find. Women are softer because we are endowed with a higher percentage of body fat. The American Heart Association says that nearly 2 of every 3 women in the U.S. are now overweight or obese. And heart disease is the leading cause of death in American women. Here are the AHA's “uniquely female” guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in women. Read more...

Michael Stravato for The New York Times So-called bath salts are labeled “not for human consumption,” which helps them skirt a law that would make them illegal.An Alarming New Stimulant, Legal in Many States / ABBY GOODNOUGH and KATIE ZEZIMA / July 16, 2011 / NY Times / The cases are jarring and similar to those involving PCP in the 1970s. Some of the recent incidents include a man in Indiana who climbed a roadside flagpole and jumped into traffic, a man in Pennsylvania who broke into a monastery and stabbed a priest, and a woman in West Virginia who scratched herself “to pieces” over several days because she thought there was something under her skin. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Anyone consuming these dangerous, toxic bath salts are simply not using good judgement. However, they are still much less dangerous than numerous household and garden poisons / chemicals in widespread circulation, that continue to kill wildlife, or even worse. A classic example: Monsanto's "RoundUp" that kills everything [plant or animal] except the genetically modified plants fused with poison to withstand its effects. It is simply a strange phenomenon allowing us to buy deadly poisons, yet not allowed to purchase marijuana legally across counters, much less dangerous than most pharmaceutical chemicals, yet very effective for many medicinal purposes.

Grapes may prevent, delay Alzheimer's / July 15, 2011 / Dr. Giulio Maria Pasinetti, The Saunders Family Professor in Neurology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and colleagues evaluated the ability of grape-derived polyphenols to prevent the generation of a specific form of beta-amyloid peptide, a substance in the brain long known to cause the neurotoxicity associated with Alzheimer disease.

Picture: Tim Carrafa Source: Herald SunMake no bones about it, dogs thrive on vegan diets / Angus Thompson / Herald Sun / July 16, 2011 / Willowmavin animal shelter operator and vegan Pam Ahern said vegan pet food was a more wholesome product than what was mostly found on the supermarket shelf. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: My dog, a dalmatian, has been maintained on a mostly vegan diet, for years. She is now 11+ years young, often mistaken for 2 or 3, as her health, vibrance and form is exceptional. She is a true testimony that dogs can in fact have better health by avoiding the meats in most conventional dog foods that are generally unhealthy. Besides, pedigreee dalmatian specialists and dog nutrition experts concede that dalmatians are in fact "meat intolerant". She loves to graze, begging for carrots and other raw produce when I prepare wholesome, vegan foods.

Whole Foods and other natural food outlets now carry vegetarian dog foods. When they are not available, ask for them or simply purchase them online. After a short period of metabolism adjustments most dogs will have better health as a result. Realize though, that dogs generally do better without too much wheat or corn in the formulas.

A Vegan Diet Was My Path To Good Health / Maya Gottfried / 7/4/11 / HuffingtonPost / Americans seem to have a desperate love affair with protein; one in which the tendency is to think that too much is never enough. I believe that the amount of protein that people generally consume eating an omnivorous diet is detrimental to their health. The lack of protein myth about vegan diets comes from the fact that there are not complete proteins in any one plant-based food. As long as one eats a variety of vegan foods throughout the day, one will consume all of the complete protein that one needs. Read more...

Companies propose curbing junk food ads for kids / MARY CLARE JALONICK / 07-14-2011 / Associated Press - Daily Freeman / The new standards, which will allow companies to advertise food and beverage products to children if they meet certain nutritional criteria, could force some brands to change recipes to include less sodium, fat, sugars and calories. While many companies have trumpeted their own efforts to market healthier foods to kids, the agreement would apply the same standards to all of the participating companies. Read more...

Once the mosquitoes are lured away from their human meal into the trap, they are poisoned or imprisoned there until they die. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: One of the biggest challenges with cancer fundraising: Besides facts that most of the money is going to the administrators, little if any is going to research proven holistic and natural remedies.

I know of cases, both breast cancer and others, that result in "total recovery" without the highly invasive "conventional" approach that often leads to severe side effects.
