The Healing Power of Performing Arts | Dr. Jingduan Yang \ 04/12/2012 | TheHuffingtonPost | The history of performing arts is as old as humankind itself. And to many, performing arts -- singing, dancing, painting, playing musical instruments, and composing -- seem as essential to life as eating or sleeping. Apart from which they may not literally, but perhaps spiritually, die. People often speak, anecdotally, of how much happier they are when they are able to perform, and many will tell you how much healthier they have become since beginning to sing, dance, paint, or play an instrument.

The Healing Power of Storytelling | Richard C. Senelick, M.D. | 04/ 9/2012 | TheHuffingtonPost | The use of storytelling goes back to pre-literate societies and ancient cultures, who used it as a means to convey their history and traditions. Many cultures would identify specific individuals to adopt the role of tale-teller.

Obese exposed to higher radiation levels | IANS | April 8, 2012 | The Hindu | if technicians use normal equipment settings to perform a CT scan on an obese patient, the resulting images are blurry as the X-ray photons have to travel further and make their way through layers of fat. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: One of the biggest challenges with CT scans and other related medical diagnosis is any level of radiation or other contamination, regardless of strength. Decades ago I learned and studied a holistic / natural approach to "body scanning", that in my opinion can do an equally good job at diagnosis without the dangerous side effects. Yet training and funding for these techniques is not available under today's medicare / insurance funding mandates. When we as a human society allow a more open minded approach to non-invasive health and healing techniques we "might" see these modalities as a "given" instead of a "shunned" way of approaching better health.

Pesticide, EPA faulted in bee die-off | JOSEPHINE MARCOTTY | Star Tribune - sacbee | Apr. 5, 2012 | Hard enough that Ellis and other beekeepers from across the country last month asked the federal government for a temporary ban on one the most widely used pesticides until its effect on bees is clear. They fear it is contributing to a worldwide die-off and the inexplicable phenomenon known as "colony collapse disorder" that is devastating honeybee hives. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: I'm absolutely sure pesticides have exacerbated this problem of bees dying, yet how many are aware that proliferation of cell towers has been a major player in decimation of bees?

In a farming community of NM, with lots of fruit trees, I noticed hardly any bees a few years back, and traced the problem: A cell tower had been put up near community, and a local bee keeper had to move them, because evidence found bees were not able to find their way back to hives, killing them off. It has to do with bee sonar affected by electromagnetic frequencies from these towers affecting their ability to make it back to hives. Many have verified this extreme problem, yet major media have in most cases intentionally avoided reporting this for obvious reasons: money.

I realize humans are now addicted to use of cell phones, feeling this technology is more important for business than probable side effects from their use. Yet at some point we as humans need to realize a balance with Nature is necessary for our survival.

EDITOR'S COMMENT: It's time people realize taking drugs to numb pain and feelings does not get rid of problems, only exacerbating conditions leading to even worse side effects.

The world’s most hated corporation is at it again, this time in Vermont.Monsanto Threatens to Sue Vermont if Legislators Pass a Bill Requiring GMO Food to Be Labeled What it really comes down to this: Elected officials are abandoning the public interest and public will in the face of corporate intimidation. | Will Allen and Ronnie Cummins | April 4, 2012 | AlterNet | Monsanto has used lawsuits or threats of lawsuits for 20 years to force unlabeled genetically engineered foods on the public, and to intimidate farmers into buying their genetically engineered seeds and hormones. When Vermont became the first state in the nation in 1994 to require mandatory labels on milk and dairy products derived from cows injected with the controversial genetically engineered Bovine Growth Hormone, Monsanto’s minions sued in Federal Court and won on a judge’s decision that dairy corporations have the first amendment “right” to remain silent on whether or not they are injecting their cows with rBGH - even though rBGH has been linked to severe health damage in cows and increased cancer risk for humans, and is banned in much of the industrialized world, including Europe and Canada.
