Associated Press Judge Boyce Martin wrote the federal appeals court's lead opinion.Appeals Court Says Health Law Is Constitutional / JESS BRAVIN / JUNE 30, 2011 / WallStreetJournal / A federal appeals court in Cincinnati upheld the 2010 health-care law Wednesday, handing the Obama administration its biggest victory yet as challenges to the president's signature initiative advance toward the Supreme Court. Read more...

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: Republicans are against health care reform for the wrong reasons, while most Democrats favor it for the wrong reasons. There are little if any provisions in this legislation funding holistic and natural practitioners, many with therapies proven to be very effective. Being forced to pay for medical procedure excluding "freedom of choice" is wrong, period. Will things ever change?

(Associated Press)Studies: Diet soda may not be helping you keep weight down / Ben Wolfgang - The Washington Times / June 29, 2011 / Two studies presented at an American Diabetes Association meeting over the weekend show, according to researchers, chilling correlations between drinking diet soft drinks and weight gain and other major health problems.

Kids who survive cancer more often get new tumors / Frederik Joelving NEW YORK | / Jun 28, 2011 / Reuters / Children who have beaten cancer once are at increased risk of developing new tumors down the road, researchers say. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: From a conventional medical standpoint, this means go to a doctor more often, so they can find more cancers, leading to more treatments then resulting side effects, a "self sustaining" business. From a natural, holistic standpoint dietary, environmental adjustments could have avoided these treatments. Yet most education programs exclude optimum nutrition support.

Avastin maker appeals FDA decision on breast cancer drug / Lauren N. Johnson | June 29, 2011 / IBTimes / The proposal came after an expert panel found symptoms of severe high blood pressure, bleeding and hemorrhage, the development of holes in the body, including the nose, stomach and intestines, and potentially heart attacks or heart failure in women who took the drug.

Sitting for hours can shave years off life / William Hudson / CNN / June 24, 2011 / What's particularly interesting about recent research is the revelation that sitting for extended periods of time does significant damage to human health that cannot be undone by exercising.

It was about healing. "That's why I write," he says. "Not that I'd want to make it seem too selfish or self-indulgent. It's to work out and strengthen a connection with pre-colonial heritage.

Healing with sound and rhythmHealing with sound and rhythm / IANS / Jun 26 2011 / Oman Times / In India, music has long been revered as a great healer as some ragas are said to have therapeutic components.

Food watchdog advises against raw sprouted seeds (AFP) – 06-26-2011 LONDON — Britain's Food Standards Agency has recommended that sprouted seeds be cooked thoroughly before consumption, and advised against eating them raw, following an outbreak of E.coli poisoning in France. Read more...

OF NOTE: Sprouts are relatively safe when eaten fresh, and not allowed to sprout too long or turn [start rotting], so sorting through them is imperitive, when more than a couple of days old. However, sprouts carry little nutrient assimilable by humans, because of enzyme inhibitors that prevent digestion. Use caution when consuming them. Sunflower sprouts seem to be one of the safest, while "sprouted almonds" [simply soaked because they don't readilly sprout] can cause problems / illness if consumed after soaking too many hours at room temperature.

Dieting, Eating Disorders Start Early, Continue / Chris Kaiser / MedPage Today / June 24, 2011 / "The tracking of these potentially harmful behaviors suggests that their use is not just a phase that adolescents go through, but instead indicates that early use of dieting and disordered eating behaviors may set the stage for continued use of these behaviors later on," the researchers wrote. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: One of the biggest challenges previous report verifies, is past conditioning from parents and upbringing, that is often found to be questionable eating habits passed to offspring by parents. One of the best things we can do, is clear these habits or patterns, then start eating correctly.

Courtesy of NEJM Potatoes — chips, fries and plain — lead the list of foods that can pack on the pounds.To Keep Off Pounds: Pass The Nuts, Hold The Chips / SCOTT HENSLEY / June 23, 2011 / NPR / The bottom line: little changes in diet could make a big difference in weight over time.

British researchers develop "cure" for Type 2 diabetes: starve yourself / Thomas H. Maugh II, Los Angeles Times / June 25, 2011 / Roy Taylor, head of the magnetic resonance imaging unit at Newcastle University in Britain, and his colleagues studied 11 patients who had developed diabetes later in life and who had had it for several years. The patients averaged 220 pounds at the beginning of the study. Each was put on a 600-calorie-per-day diet that included a special diet drink and non-starchy vegetables, such as broccoli, asparagus and cabbage. The diet was followed for eight weeks. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: OK. Article above is not completely correct. From a "main stream" standpoint, eating correctly will indicate craving for the junk foods, chemical, all genetically engineered varieties that need to be avoided to clear this illness. "They" call this starving. Many of us know diabetes is easily "cured", but we are not allowed to claim this, to avoid incarceration or exhorbitant fines. Yet little by little, conventional practicioners are starting to listen, after decades of slamming natural remedies. Click here to find out more about diabetes.

Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: I converted my dog to a mostly vegan diet ["meat intolerant" Dalmatian] 5 years ago. She is now 11 yo, and shows no signs of aging and dementia, with stamina of dogs much younger, yet was sickly and extremely aggressive before this shift. There are now numerous vegetarian dog foods on the market. Even large chains like Petco, Whole Foods and PetSmart carry them. If your local outlets do not carry vegetarian varieties of food for dogs, ask.

Graphic cigarette labels, will they work? / Gary Strauss / 06-24-2011 / USA TODAY / In the most sweeping anti-tobacco effort since the surgeon general's warning became mandatory on cigarette packaging in 1965, the FDA said Tuesday it will begin requiring tobacco marketers to cover the top half of cigarette boxes and 20% of tobacco advertisements with nine bluntly graphic anti-smoking image. Read more...

Study: Low-calorie diet may provide cure to Type 2 diabetics / June 24, 2011 (AHN) Vittorio Hernandez / Switching to a diet of sugar-free drinks and non-starchy vegetables leads the diabetic’s body to remove the fat that clogs their pancreas, allowing the organ to again produce insulin. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: We have long known the positive effects of a balanced vegan / raw diet on weight loss. Yet even then one must be careful to balance carbs and starchy foods [not too much] with quality, organic nuts, seeds, vegies and fruits to achieve this. Diabetes reversal is often a given when one relieves their systems of deleterious chemicals, processed junk foods, refined sugars, saturated fats, etc.

A group of US representatives plan to introduce legislation that will legalize marijuana and allow states to legislate its use, pro-marijuana groups said Wednesday. Lawmakers to introduce bill to legalize marijuana / Luis Robayo | AFP – Wed, 22 Jun, 2011 / Three weeks ago a group of ex-presidents of Latin America as well as former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan denounced the failure of the global war on drugs and called for urgent changes, including the legalization of cannabis. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: When one realizes this ridiculous "war on drugs" has not succeeded while filling our prisons with non violent criminals that could otherwise be contributing to our economy, this makes perfect sense. Big Pharmaceutical interests with plans to sell chemical THC derived from marijuana, along with gangsters and thugs, would continue making big profits regardless, as long as it's illegal. Besides, by ancient native standards, ALL plants have a purpose, with a right to life, and marijuana use has been proven to be medicinal. Thank you to Republican Ron Paul and Democrat Barney Frank for allying to present this important legislation.

Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Mutilation of a body that was given to you by the Creator is reason enough to avoid what could be described as a macabre science called "breast augmentation". This is the center of a human frame, close to your heart, and there is simply too much evidence indicating there are way too many "conventional treatments" often causing more harm than good. Common sense often works much better. Click here for more information on this.

New Moms Sell Excess Breast Milk for Cash on Internet / JUJU CHANG and NATASHA SINGH / June 6, 2011 / Women all over the country are cashing in on what people are calling a mother's natural liquid gold: human breast milk.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Breast milk, like any other nutrient, is affected by its source. Let's just hope ladies selling their breast milk are eating correctly, so they won't pass unwanted pathogens and/or toxins to the consumers. It can be an improvement over cow's milk, never intended for human consumption. Either way this is mother's milk, regardless of source, specifically designed by the creature to help their own babies along during their earlier months of life.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE: Breast milk marketing could become big business. Yet like any other food related economics this could lead to different grades, like organic / non-organic, or vegan / lacto-vegetarian / meat eater, etc. In the 1970s a group of bio-chemists and scientists I worked with researched breast milks, and found meat eaters /or SAD eaters [Standard American Diet] had the highest levels of toxicity / pathogens in their mother's milk. The cleanest were almost always vegan mother's milk.
