The Familiar Food Which May Help Fight Alzheimer’s Disease

PsyBlog | spring.org.uk

A new study finds that a diet which includes walnuts may delay the onset, progression and even the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

The animal study, which is published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, found that a walnut-rich diet increased memory, learning skills and even reduced anxiety in mice (Chauhan et al., 2014).

According to neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, people who get the flu shot five years in a row have a ten-fold increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

The flu vaccine still has the full amount of ethyl mercury, contained in the preservative thimerosal.

This video from the University of Calgary shows the death of brain cells after their exposure to mercury.

The new substance could have the added bonus of being “switched off” instantaneously with a pill, to allow drinkers to drive home or return to work.

The synthetic alcohol, being developed from chemicals related to Valium, works like alcohol on nerves in the brain that provide a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.

But unlike alcohol its does not affect other parts of the brain that control mood swings and lead to addiction. It is also much easier to flush out of the body.

Monsanto Panics: Drops Another $3.5 Million to Defeat GMO Labeling in Oregon and Colorado

Christina Sarich | naturalsociety.com

The ballots are out and voting has begun. Monsanto is panicking, and so are their biotech and GMO manufacturing friends. So much so that they just dropped a staggering $2.5 million in addition to what they’ve already spent to defeat GMO labeling in Oregon – bringing the total to $4.5 million in just one state. They also dropped another cool million in Colorado – bringing the total to about $5 million in that state – all to keep voters from checking that YES LABEL GMOs box at the voting booths or on their ballots. What exactly are these companies trying to hide from U.S. consumers?

Lose the weight, not the potatoes, study says

Taylor & Francis | sciencedaily.com

People can eat potatoes and still lose weight, a new study demonstrates. The study sought to gain a better understanding of the role of calorie reduction and the glycemic index in weight loss when potatoes are included in the diet. “Some people have questioned the role of potatoes in a weight loss regimen because of the vegetable’s designation as a high glycemic index food,” explained the lead investigator of the study. “However, the results of this study confirm what health professionals and nutrition experts have said for years: it is not about eliminating a certain food or food groups, rather, it is reducing calories that count.”

Some direct questions for the BBC that it’ll never answer.

Pointman’s

The revelations of the last couple of weeks, have shone a bright light into some dark corners of the BBC and what’s been exposed, while very disturbing and quite frankly seamy, comes as no surprise to those of us who’ve long entertained doubts on its supposed impartiality, integrity and even its basic journalistic competence. There’s for too long been an air of smug complacency about the whole organisation, buttressed by their idea that everyone just naturally couldn’t help but love it to bits.

This has led to the corrupting mindset that anyone critical of the organisation, was somehow just a reactionary and therefore their criticisms could at best be humoured or at worst, totally discounted. Any person or any organisation, who thinks they’re above criticism, are on that arrogant slippery slope into decadence. They stopped listening to any viewpoint which wasn’t comfortably approving years ago.

What Will the World Inherit From GE Salmon?

Dr. Gerry Goeden | independentsciencenews.org

It’s true; about 50 percent of the fish we eat are farmed. There is good reason for this as, one by one, the world’s commercial fisheries collapse through overfishing. According to FAO (2010), 70% of the world’s large commercial fisheries have either failed or are not far from it.

When things started to go wrong with world fisheries, fish farming was hailed as the ultimate solution. Fish could be produced cheaply and pressure removed from wild stocks. It seemed like the perfect solution to a very big problem.

Scientists Working On Zapping Bad Memories

CBSMiami

It sounds like science fiction. The idea that bad memories could be erased with a flash of light.

Well, the future is here – at least for mice.

Researchers at the University of California Davis Center For Neuroscience are learning how to use lasers to erase specific memories in mice. Something that could possibly benefit humans one day.

Vote all you want. The secret government won’t change.

Jordan Michael Smith | bostonglobe.com

The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.

Last week, hundreds of people poured into the Women’s Building here in San Francisco to take part in the Justice Begins with Seeds conference, organized by the California Biosafety Alliance and co-sponsored by PANNA and several other partner groups. Abuzz with activities from September 13-17, the conference provided a forum for Californians to engage in movement building that challenges the corporate food system, pushes back against genetically engineered food and seeds, and nourishes the roots of food democracy.

California readies pay-as-you-drive tax test, coming soon to a road near you

Justin Hyde | autos.yahoo.com

It won’t happen immediately, or even within the next year, but not too far into the future you might pay a tax for every mile you drive — thanks to California.

Three weeks ago, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law the first test of mileage-based road taxes in the Golden State. The bill, which passed the state legislature with the backing of transit agencies, environmental groups and most major automakers, creates a 15-person panel to oversee a pilot of pay-by-the-mile taxation by 2018.

Computerized Election Theft and the New American Century

Jonathan D. Simon | Truthout

Is it futile to combat computerized vote-counting fraud, given the more general disenfranchisement of the American public? This and the emerging battlefield of corporate versus public interest is explored in this adapted excerpt from “CODE RED” by Jonathan D. Simon.

Many despairing observers of The New American Century have asked me whether – given the recent revelations about NSA surveillance, along with other signs that American democracy is deteriorating irrespective of which party governs – an honest vote counting system would even matter anymore.

Dr. Diane Harper was the lead researcher in the development of the human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix.  She is the latest to come forward and question the safety and effectiveness of these vaccines.  She made the surprising announcement at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination, which took place in Reston, Virginia on Oct. 2nd through 4th, 2009.  Her speech was supposed to promote the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, but she instead turned on her corporate bosses in a very public way.  When questioned about the presentation, audience members remarked that they came away feeling that the vaccines should not be used.

12 nurses sue over being forced to help with abortions

Originally posted 2011-11-03 16:17:01. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Source: WND

A dozen nurses have filed a lawsuit against a hospital run by the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey over a plan that would coerce them to help with abortions, and they want an injunction right away as the hospital has scheduled them to be in the operating rooms as early as Friday.

And the complaint asks that the hospital be told to return some $60 million to the federal government, too.

Federal law prohibits hospitals that receive certain types of federal funds from forcing workers to help with abortions, according to the case brought by the Alliance Defense Fund.

Further, New Jersey law states, “No person shall be required to perform or assist in the performance of an abortion or sterilization.”

How did this happen in America? Read “The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom”

“Pro-life nurses shouldn’t be forced to assist in abortions against their beliefs,” said Matt Bowman, legal counsel for the organization. “No [fewer] than 12 nurses have encountered threats to their jobs at this hospital ever since a policy change required them to participate in the abortions regardless of their religious objections.

Beating acne may be a matter of thyme: Herbal cream ‘more effective’ than prescription gel

Originally posted 2012-03-28 21:12:23. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Beating acne may be simply a matter of thyme.

Research shows that the herb may be better at zapping spots than expensive creams, gels and lotions, including some are available on prescription.

It may also be kinder to the skin and, unlike these powerful peroxide-based treatments, it would not leave irritating bleach marks on pillow cases and clothes

Acne affects most people at some point in their lives. It most often strikes girls between the ages of 14 and 17. Boys tend to be blighted slightly later, between the ages of 16 and 19.

It doesn’t always disappear on adulthood and around 5 per cent of women and 1 per cent of men have acne over the age of 25.

Thyme’s spot-busting potential is being studied by researchers from Leeds Metropolitan University.

An overview of geoengineering of climate using stratospheric sulphate aerosols.

Originally posted 2012-01-24 19:31:10. Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Source: PubMed

We provide an overview of geoengineering by stratospheric sulphate aerosols. The state of understanding about this topic as of early 2008 is reviewed, summarizing the past 30 years of work in the area, highlighting some very recent studies using climate models, and discussing methods used to deliver sulphur species to the stratosphere. The studies reviewed here suggest that sulphate aerosols can counteract the globally averaged temperature increase associated with increasing greenhouse gases, and reduce changes to some other components of the Earth system. There are likely to be remaining regional climate changes after geoengineering, with some regions experiencing significant changes in temperature or precipitation. The aerosols also serve as surfaces for heterogeneous chemistry resulting in increased ozone depletion. The delivery of sulphur species to the stratosphere in a way that will produce particles of the right size is shown to be a complex and potentially very difficult task. Two simple delivery scenarios are explored, but similar exercises will be needed for other suggested delivery mechanisms. While the introduction of the geoengineering source of sulphate aerosol will perturb the sulphur cycle of the stratosphere signicantly, it is a small perturbation to the total (stratosphere and troposphere) sulphur cycle. The geoengineering source would thus be a small contributor to the total global source of ‘acid rain’ that could be compensated for through improved pollution control of anthropogenic tropospheric sources. Some areas of research remain unexplored. Although ozone may be depleted, with a consequent increase to solar ultraviolet-B (UVB) energy reaching the surface and a potential impact on health and biological populations, the aerosols will also scatter and attenuate this part of the energy spectrum, and this may compensate the UVB enhancement associated with ozone depletion. The aerosol will also change the ratio of diffuse to direct energy reaching the surface, and this may influence ecosystems. The impact of geoengineering on these components of the Earth system has not yet been studied. Representations for the formation, evolution and removal of aerosol and distribution of particle size are still very crude, and more work will be needed to gain confidence in our understanding of the deliberate production of this class of aerosols and their role in the climate system.
