Are You B-12 deficient?

Comment:
It has been well known for over 50 years that only eating vegetable and fruits – a vegan diet – will lead to vitamin B12 deficiency. Be careful of strange ideas emanating from the alternative health camp just as you would from the traditional medical sources. One of my main bug-a-boos is vegans. All vegans must supplement with B12 sources. And since the bad advice for decades now to avoid red meat is common, those who do so, will exhibit mental and behavioral problems, since red meat is one of the best sources for B12.

Some Facts About GMOs

Joe Rappaport has it right!!

Scientific basis for GMO crops is false

 

 

Scientific basis for GMO crops is false

Unpredictable effects. Unknown outcomes. Potential health consequences. Uncertain gene technology.

 

These aren’t phrases biotech giants like to hear.

 

They prefer:

 

“One gene produces one protein.”

 

“Each gene has a specific function.”

 

This is the basis for the modern biotech industry, and it applies most definitely to GMO crops.

 

And it is false.

 

So for example, when Monsanto says the genes they insert in plants only serve to protect the plants from the herbicide Roundup and have no other function, they’re making it up.

 

For a brief summary of the situation, see Denise Caruso’s NY Times piece, “A Challenge to Gene Theory, a Tougher Look at Biotech,” July 1, 2007.

 

Caruso reports on the findings of an “exhaustive four-year effort…organized by the United States National Human Genome Research Institute and carried out by 35 groups from 80 organizations around the world.”

 

“…genes appear to operate in a complex network, and interact and overlap with one another and with other components in ways not yet fully understood.”

 

“Evidence of a networked [interacting] genome shatters the scientific basis for virtually every official risk [safety] assessment of today’s commercial biotech products, from genetically engineered crops to pharmaceuticals.”

 

In other words, each gene inserted in GMO food crops cannot be said to have only one function. There is reason to believe the inserted genes interact with genes already in the plants, and produce unknown effects.

 

Therefore, bland assurances of safety are smoke blowing in the wind.

 

“Jack Heinemann, a professor of molecular biology in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand and director of its Center for Integrated Research in Biosafety”: ‘The real worry for us has always been that the commercial agenda for biotech may be premature, based on what we have long known was an incomplete understanding of genetics…’

 

Heinemann: “Because gene patents and the genetic engineering process itself are both defined in terms of genes acting independently, [government] regulators may be unaware of the potential impacts arising from these network [interacting] effects.”

 

Biotech companies like Monsanto are, to be sure, aware of this gaping hole in their “science” of gene-function. In fact, according to Heinemann, “Many biotech companies already conduct detailed genetic studies of their products that profile the expression of proteins and other elements. But they are not required to report most of this data to regulators, so they do not. Thus vast stores of important research information sit idle.”

 

This means that Monsanto or Dow can conceal what they’ve discovered about GMO hazards. They can hide findings that show unpredicted effects, when inserted genes meet and network with natural genes in the food crops.

 

If we were merely talking about studies done in labs and abstract articles in journals, that would be one thing. But of course, we are talking about millions of acres planted with GMO crops—and vast populations eating GMO food.

 

It’s all based on a simplistic and false notion about how genes function.

 

The biotech giants know this, government regulators know this, and many scientists know this.

 

But they hide what they know.

 

And all this dangerous fakery doesn’t even touch on the highly toxic effects of Roundup and other herbicides necessary to manage GMO crops.

GMO Alfalfa spreads to non-GMO Alfalfa

Commentary: Below is a report showing that the regulatory agency is wrong about GMOs, again.  To add to the pesticide and widespread chemical contamination of air, water, soil, wildlife, and foods now include genetics. This means gene transfers between GMO species and non-GMO species that will probably produce monsters of all sorts.  At first these will be eliminated because most monsters are lethal, but given enough time we should expect real monsters.  Scientific fiction may be a realistic means for seeing the future.

Gads, where can one hide?  Nowhere, so fight we must.

Breast Cancer is Already Solved so Don’t Donate to Cancer Research

Don’t support breast cancer research – the problem is already solved.

Comment by WO: We have known for years that “chemicals cause cancer” so the solution, at least for starters, is not to be exposed. Here is the latest in the battle to stop a few of these poisons.
Note also that with a Republican Congress one can expect the chemical pollution to get worse. Republicans apparently don’t get breast cancer. Continue Reading →

The Ten Habits of Highly Effective Brains

 

from: http://sharpbrains.com/blog/2007/08/22/10-habits-of-highly-effective-brains/

 

By: Alvaro Fernandez

Let’s review some good lifestyle options we can fol­low to main­tain, and improve, our vibrant brains.

.

.

  1. 1.   Learn what is the “It” in “Use It or Lose It”. A basic under­stand­ing will serve you well to appre­ci­ate your brain’s beauty as a liv­ing and constantly-developing dense for­est with bil­lions of neu­rons and synapses.
  2. 2.   Take care of your nutri­tion. Did you know that the brain only weighs 2% of body mass but con­sumes over 20% of the oxy­gen and nutri­ents we intake? As a gen­eral rule, you don’t need expen­sive ultra-sophisticated nutri­tional sup­ple­ments, just make sure you don’t stuff your­self with the “bad stuff”.
  3. 3.   Remem­ber that the brain is part of the body. Things that exer­cise your body can also help sharpen your brain: phys­i­cal exer­cise enhances neurogenesis.
  4. 4.   Prac­tice pos­i­tive, future-oriented thoughtsuntil they become your default mind­set and you look for­ward to every new day in a con­struc­tive way. Stress and anx­i­ety, no mat­ter whether induced by exter­nal events or by your own thoughts, actu­ally kills neu­rons and pre­vent the cre­ation of new ones. You can think of chronic stress as the oppo­site of exer­cise: it pre­vents the cre­ation of new neurons.
  5. 5.   Thrive on Learn­ing and Men­tal Chal­lenges. The point of hav­ing a brain is pre­cisely to learn and to adapt to chal­leng­ing new envi­ron­ments. Once new neu­rons appear in your brain, where they stay in your brain and how long they sur­vive depends on how you use them. “Use It or Lose It” does not mean “do cross­word puz­zle num­ber 1,234,567″. It means, “chal­lenge your brain often with fun­da­men­tally new activities”.
  6. 6.   We are (as far as we know) the only self-directed organ­isms in this planet. Aim high. Once you grad­u­ate from col­lege, keep learn­ing. The brain keeps devel­op­ing, no mat­ter your age, and it reflects what you do with it.
  7. 7.   Explore, travel. Adapt­ing to new loca­tions forces you to pay more atten­tion to your envi­ron­ment. Make new deci­sions, use your brain.
  8. 8.   Don’t Out­source Your Brain. Not to media per­son­al­i­ties, not to politi­cians, not to your smart neigh­bour… Make your own deci­sions, and mis­takes. And learn from them. That way, you are train­ing your brain, not your neighbour’s.
  9. 9.   Develop and main­tain stim­u­lat­ing friend­ships. We are “social ani­mals”, and need social inter­ac­tion. Which, by the way, is why ‘Baby Ein­stein’ has been shown not to be the panacea for chil­dren development.
  10. 10.     Laugh. Often. Espe­cially to cog­ni­tively com­plex humor, full of twists and sur­prises. Bet­ter, try to become the next Jon Stewart

Now, remem­ber that what counts is not read­ing this article-or any other-, but prac­tic­ing a bit every day until small steps snow­ball into unstop­pable, inter­nal­ized habits…so, pick your next bat­tle and try to start improv­ing at least one of these 10 habits today. Revisit the habit above that really grabbed your atten­tion, click on the link to learn more, and make a deci­sion to try some­thing dif­fer­ent today!
