Seventeen Percent of Cancer Nurses Unintentionally Exposed to Chemotherapy


ScienceDaily (Aug. 23, 2011) — Nearly 17 percent of nurses who work in outpatient chemotherapy infusion centers reported being exposed on their skin or eyes to the toxic drugs they deliver, according to a new study from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.---The study surveyed 1,339 oncology nurses from one state who did not work in inpatient hospital units. About 84 percent of chemotherapy is delivered in outpatient settings, largely by nurses. Results appear online in the journal BMJ Quality and Safety.---"Any unintentional exposure to the skin or eyes could be just as dangerous as a needle stick," says lead study author Christopher Friese, R.N., Ph.D., assistant professor at the U-M School of Nursing.---"We have minimized needle stick incidents so that they are rare events that elicit a robust response from administrators. Nurses go immediately for evaluation and prophylactic treatment. But we don't have that with chemotherapy exposure," Friese says.---Safety guidelines for chemotherapy drug administration have been issued by organizations such as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. But these guidelines are not mandatory. Guidelines include recommendations for using gowns, gloves and other protective gear when handling chemotherapy drugs.---The U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center adheres to these safety guidelines and has procedures in place to implement and enforce them for all staff who administer chemotherapy drugs. U-M nurses did not participate in this study.--The study authors found that practices that had more staffing and resources reported fewer exposures. Also, practices in which two or more nurses were required to verify chemotherapy orders -- part of the suggested guidelines -- had fewer exposures."This research shows that paying attention to the workload, the health of an organization, and the quality of working conditions pays off. It's not just about job satisfaction -- it's likely to lower the risk of these occupational hazards," Friese says.---Unlike needle sticks where a specific virus is involved and preventive treatments can be given, it's more difficult to link chemotherapy exposure to a direct health effect. That makes it more difficult for health care systems to respond to these incidents. Unintentional chemotherapy exposure can affect the nervous system, impair the reproductive system and confer a future risk of blood cancers.--Friese collaborated in this study with the U-M School of Nursing's Occupational Health Nursing Program, which focuses on training nurses to promote injury prevention and protect against work-related injuries and environmental hazards on the job. By combining this practical occupational health perspective with the expertise of quality and safety researchers, the team hopes to better understand what happens during chemotherapy exposure and what can be done in the work place to prevent it.---"If we ensure patient safety, we should also ensure employee safety by strictly adhering to the national safety guidelines and providing staff education on these guidelines," Friese says.---Additional authors: Laurel-Himes Ferris; Megan N. Frasier; Marjorie C. McCullagh, R.N., Ph.D.; and Jennifer J. Griggs, M.D., M.P.H.

How and why exactly does sodium chloride affects microorganisms? or bacteria? In another word, how does preservative(salt) works?


 All organisms with a semipermeable membrane are subject to osmotic pressure, or the effect of water moving in and out of the cell. Bacteria have a cell membrane and a cell wall. Bacteria must live in an aqueous (watery) environment. Most often this is a hypotonic environment, in other words, the concentration of water outside the cell is greater than the concentration of water inside the cell. This causes the net movement of more water into the cell than outside. If the bacterium did not have a cell wall, this could cause the cell to burst. (In fact, many antibiotics work by causing an ineffective cell wall to be made, which allows the bacterial cell to burst under water pressure). So why does salt work as a preservative? Because when the outside environment around a cell is salty, then the concentration of water in the solution is less than inside the cell and water tends to leave the cell. This causes the cell to dehydrate, which eventually kills the cell. By subjecting bacteria to a salty environment, it keeps them from growing. Some bacteria however, have adapted to living in salty environments, such as Staph. bacteria a common skin inhabitant. Your skin tends to be salty-this is one way your body protects you against bacteria on your skin. But even Staph can't live in highly salty surroundings, such as salted foods like ham, etc.




 The major effect of salt as a preservative is that it withdraws water from microorganisms if the external salt concentration is high enough. The microbes would shrivel and die, spores would not be killed but would not be able to germinate. High concentrations of sugar have the same effect. The physical term for this is hypertonic tension. Some bacteria have learned to cope with high salt concentrations and can live in saline waters. Fortunately they are not pathogenic




There are several ways in which salt and sugar inhibit microbial growth. The most notable is simple osmosis, or dehydration. Salt or sugar, whether in solid or aqueous form, attempts to reach equilibrium with the salt or sugar content of the food product with which it is in contact. This has the effect of drawing available water from within the food to the outside and inserting salt or sugar molecules into the food interior. The result is a reduction of the so-called product water activity (aw), a measure of unbound, free water molecules in the food that is necessary for microbial survival and growth. The aw of most fresh foods is 0.99 whereas the aw necessary to inhibit growth of most bacteria is roughly 0.91. Yeasts and molds, on the other hand, usually require even lower aw to prevent growth.------------- Salt and sugar's other antimicrobial mechanisms include interference with a microbe's enzyme activity and weakening the molecular structure of its DNA. Sugar may also provide an indirect form of preservation by serving to accelerate accumulation of antimicrobial compounds from the growth of certain other organisms. Examples include the conversion of sugar to ethanol in wine by fermentative yeasts or the conversion of sugar to organic acids in sauerkraut by lactic acid bacteria.------------- Microorganisms differ widely in their ability to resist salt- or sugar-induced reductions of aw. Most disease-causing bacteria do not grow below 0.94 aw (roughly 10 percent sodium chloride concentration), whereas most molds that spoil foods grow at an aw as low as 0.80, corresponding to highly concentrated salt or sugar solutions. Yet other microorganisms grow quite well under even more highly osmotic, low aw conditions. For example, halophiles are an entire class of "salt-loving" bacteria that actually require a significant level of salt to grow and are capable of spoiling salt-cured foods. These include members of the genera Halobacillus and Halococcus. Food products that are concentrated sugar solutions, such as concentrated fruit juices, can be spoiled by sugar-loving yeasts such as species of Zygosaccharomyces. Nevertheless, use of salt and sugar curing to prevent microbial growth is an ancient technique that remains important today for the preservation of foods.—




Deaths from Strong Prescription Painkillers Are On the Increase


ScienceDaily (Aug. 23, 2011) — Action is needed to tackle the increasing number of deaths in the United States and Canada from prescription painkillers known as opioids, say experts in an article published online in the British Medical Journal.----Opioids are prescription painkillers that contain compounds derived from the opium poppy.---While they have long been used to control the symptoms of cancer and acute medical conditions, they are increasingly being used to control chronic pain, for example in patients suffering from osteoarthritis, say Dr Irfan Dhalla and colleagues at the University of Toronto.---They describe how in the US, deaths involving opioid painkillers increased from 4,041 in 1999 to 14,459 in 2007 and are now more common than deaths from skin cancer, HIV and alcoholic liver disease. They add that between 1.4 million and 1.9 million Germans are addicted to prescription drugs and that some authorities have suggested that the UK may face a similar epidemic to that of North America in five to ten years time. Indeed, the use of strong opioids for chronic non-cancer pain in the UK has been described as a "disaster in the making" by Dr. Des Spence previously on Dhalla and colleagues add that "deaths involving methadone and codeine roughly doubled in England and Wales between 2005 and 2009, while deaths involving heroin or morphine remained unchanged."---In order to tackle the crisis in the US and Canada, the authors put forward several strategies.---They say staff working for drug companies should not get commission for marketing prescription opioid drugs and that regulators should evaluate adverts for them before they are disseminated[U1] . Another initiative would be to introduce real-time electronic databases to reduce the frequency with which opioids are obtained from multiple doctors or pharmacies.[U2]  Dhalla and colleagues also call for educational outreach programmes for doctors to improve opioid prescribing, as well as more research to guide practice. They note that the evidence for the use of opioids to control chronic pain is very limited and the risks may outweigh the benefits.---In conclusion, they say that maintaining access to opioids for appropriately selected patients while striving for major reductions in overdose deaths must be a major priority for physicians and policymakers.----Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by BMJ-British Medical Journal, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS.--Journal Reference:--I.

How to make Iodine Crystals



 2% Iodine tincture extraction method


 First, I will explain some of the acronyms that will appear in this tutorial. DH2O is for distilled water. It is just H2O, which is water, with a "D" for distilled in front of it. Next, H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide. For this iodine crystal extraction, we will be using a store bought 3% H2O2 solution. HCL is the next acronym on the list. It stands for hydrochloric acid. It can be bought at any hardware store, usually as a driveway or pool cleaner. The label will usually say muriatic acid, which is a solution of HCL around 30%.


 Now to the extraction. Always remember to wear safety equipment! You should always at the very least have on goggles and gloves rated to withstand what you are working with. Never breathe in any vapors coming from the chemicals you are working in. ALWAYS do this in a well ventilated area

In a ratio form, this is what you will be using for reagents:

Four parts 2% iodine tincture

One part DH2O


 Two parts 3% H2O2


 You will also need .75 ml 30% HCL per fluid ounce of iodine tincture. You will need a container to hold all of the fluids you now have in front of you. It doesn't matter if its a bowl, jar, beaker, or anything else. Just make sure to always use glassware.


 FYou start out by pouring the iodine tincture into the container. Slowly add the DH20 and stir, but always avoid splashing. Then, slowly add the HCL and stir.


 At this point, you need to wait for about 15 minutes to let the reagents do their work. --- After you have waited 15 minutes, add the H2O2 slowly while stirring. At this point, you need to wait for 12 hours. --- Now, you need to have a filter and another container ready. I recommend an ultra fine plastic mesh cone filter. It won't clog, and it won't absorb any of the liquid. Sometime the color will be too dark, and you can add a bit more H2O2 and let it sit for a second pull. Now you need to rinse the crystals that remain in the filter with copious amounts of water. After this, spoon or tap them onto a stack of three coffee filters. Fold the filters so nothing can come out. Now take some paper towels and wrap them around the filter and try to get as much of the moisture out as you can. The final step is to drop the still closed filter into a container with Damp-Rid or any kind of moisture absorbing product. If you chose to add more H2O2, proceed in the same fashion for the second pull. --- The final product from the iodine crystal extraction should be stored in an air-tight container where little light is present. Light and moisture will degrade your iodine crystals.


FThe second iodine extraction method is a newer one, formed from my own experimentation. Its main advantage is increased iodine crystal yield. For anyone who will actually be using the product instead of just performing the iodine crystal extraction for fun, this will be a huge benefit for you.


 For this iodine crystal extraction, the same acronyms apply, and the same safety procedures apply as well. Please do not bypass the safety procedures on this extraction or any technique using chemicals.


 7% Iodine tincture extraction method

The reagents you will need are:

One pint 7% iodine tincture

One pint 3% H2O2

Two cups DH2O

 One ounce HCL


1) Pour the iodine tincture into a gallon or half gallon jar. 2) Slowly pour in the DH2O and mix well. 3)Now pour in the HCL, stir, and wait fifteen minutes. 4) After the fifteen minutes, slowly pour in the H2O2 while stirring. Seal the jar with a lid. If the lid you are using is metal, make sure to put saran wrap or a Ziploc bag over the mouth of the jar and rubber band it tightly in place. Let the mixture sit for twelve hours. Now, you need to filter the crystals out with a ultra fine plastic mesh cone filter, or any filter of your choice. Make sure to save the liquid. Tap the crystals into a stack of three coffee filters and wrap them up. Use paper towels to dry as much of the moisture out of the filters as you can. Finish by dropping the still wrapped up iodine crystals into a container of Damp-Rid or any kind of moisture absorbing product. Now, add another one-quarter cup H2O2 to the liquid and repeat the previous steps the harvest another five to ten grams of iodine crystals. You should yield 45-48 grams of dry iodine crystals from this method if done correctly. --

 The final product from the iodine crystal extraction should be stored in an air-tight container where little light is present. Light and moisture will degrade your iodine crystals.



Making Iodide crystals by  using store bought tincture of iodine

30 mls of Hydrochloric acid or muiriatic acid –1/2 :1 ratio to a 30 ml bottle---so if using 60 mls the  then you are using 15 mls of HCl acid to 30 mls of Iodine

then you are adding 60 mls of Hydrogen peroxide to 60 mls of iodine---again here it is a 1:1---start of with adding the iodine in a container per every 30 ml then follow the ratio to acids ( 15ml) and peroxide ( 30 ml)  mix well til there is separation when separated then filter out the components and then rinse at the end with water—-you will have a Iodide crystal




Tincture of Iodine

Add 2 g of Iodine to 45 mL of ethanol and dissolve.

Dissolve this mixture in 55 mL of distilled water.

Add 2.4 grams of KI to this mixture and dissolve.



Isolating Elemental Iodine from Potassium Iodide


 Iodine crystals are used in a couple of the experiments in the book. When I wrote those sections, iodine was freely available, but the DEA recently moved iodine to List I, which means it now requires completing paperwork and showing ID to purchase iodine. Fortunately, there's a very easy way around this problem. You can isolate elemental iodine from potassium iodide, which is included in one of the chemical kits. To do so, take the following steps:


 1. Weigh out 2.0 g of potassium iodide and transfer it to a test tube.


 2. Add about 1.5 mL of distilled water to the test tube and swirl to dissolve the potassium iodide.


 3. Add 1.5 mL of concentrated hydrochloric acid (or about 1.8 mL of hardware store muriatic acid) to the test tube and swirl to mix the solutions.


 4. Add about 10 mL of drugstore 3% hydrogen peroxide. The solution immediately turns dark brown as the iodide ions are oxidized to elemental iodine, which precipitates out.


 5. Swirl the test tube to suspend the iodine and pour the liquid through a funnel with a folded piece of filter paper to capture the iodine crystals.


 6. Rinse the iodine crystals on the filter paper several times with a few mL of distilled water. The rinse solution appears brown from dissolved iodine, but iodine is not very soluble in water, so you're not losing much of your yield.


 7. Spread out the filter paper on a watch glass or saucer and allow the crystals to dry thoroughly. Iodine gradually sublimates (passes directly from solid to gaseous form) at room temperature, so don't leave the crystals exposed to air any longer than necessary to dry them.


 8. Once the crystals are dry, transfer them to a sealed storage bottle or vial.


 These quantities produce a gram or so of iodine, which is sufficient for the experiments that require it. If you need more iodine, simply increase all quantities proportionately.






 [U1]Like this is really going to be enforced??? The reason so many people are dying of these drugs is due to the fact they are the most prescribed and make the doctor the most money

Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations, say scientists


Rising greenhouse emissions could tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report When they see what a mess we've made of our planet, extraterrestrials may be forced to take drastic action. Photograph: PR

It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.---Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth's atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain. This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by a Nasa-affiliated scientist and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University that, while considered unlikely, they say could play out were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future. Shawn Domagal-Goldman of Nasa's Planetary Science Division and his colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity "prepare for actual contact".---In their report, Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis, the researchers divide alien contacts into three broad categories: beneficial, neutral or harmful.---Beneficial encounters ranged from the mere detection of extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI), for example through the interception of alien broadcasts, to contact with cooperative organisms that help us advance our knowledge and solve global problems such as hunger, poverty and disease.

Another beneficial outcome the authors entertain sees humanity triumph over a more powerful alien aggressor, or even being saved by a second group of ETs. "In these scenarios, humanity benefits not only from the major moral victory of having defeated a daunting rival, but also from the opportunity to reverse-engineer ETI technology," the authors write.---Other kinds of close encounter may be less rewarding and leave much of human society feeling indifferent towards alien life. The extraterrestrials may be too different from us to communicate with usefully. They might invite humanity to join the "Galactic Club" only for the entry requirements to be too bureaucratic and tedious for humans to bother with. They could even become a nuisance, like the stranded, prawn-like creatures that are kept in a refugee camp in the 2009 South African movie, District 9, the report explains.---The most unappealing outcomes would arise if extraterrestrials caused harm to humanity, even if by accident. While aliens may arrive to eat, enslave or attack us, the report adds that people might also suffer from being physically crushed or by contracting diseases carried by the visitors. In especially unfortunate incidents, humanity could be wiped out when a more advanced civilisation accidentally unleashes an unfriendly artificial intelligence, or performs a catastrophic physics experiment that renders a portion of the galaxy uninhabitable.

To bolster humanity's chances of survival, the researchers call for caution in sending signals into space, and in particular warn against broadcasting information about our biological make-up, which could be used to manufacture weapons that target humans. Instead, any contact with ETs should be limited to mathematical discourse "until we have a better idea of the type of ETI we are dealing with[U1] ."----The authors warn that extraterrestrials may be wary of civilisations that expand very rapidly, as these may be prone to destroy other life as they grow, just as humans have pushed species to extinction on Earth. In the most extreme scenario, aliens might choose to destroy humanity to protect other civilisations.--"A preemptive strike would be particularly likely in the early phases of our expansion because a civilisation may become increasingly difficult to destroy as it continues to expand. Humanity may just now be entering the period in which its rapid civilisational expansion could be detected by an ETI because our expansion is changing the composition of the Earth's atmosphere, via greenhouse gas emissions," the report states.--"Green" aliens might object to the environmental damage humans have caused on Earth and wipe us out to save the planet. "These scenarios give us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems. It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets," the authors write.  Even if we never make contact with extraterrestrials, the report argues that considering the potential scenarios may help to plot the future path of human civilisation, avoid collapse and achieve long-term survival.--• This article was amended on 19 August 2011. The subhead said the report was "for Nasa". This has been corrected.



Caffeine Lowers Risk of Skin Cancer: Coffee-Based Sunscreen Might Work Best


ScienceDaily (Aug. 15, 2011) — There might be a time when instead of just drinking that morning cup of coffee you lather it on your skin as a way of preventing harmful sun damage or skin cancer.---A new Rutgers study strengthens the theory that caffeine guards against certain skin cancers at the molecular level by inhibiting a protein enzyme in the skin, known as ATR. Scientists believe that based on what they have learned studying mice, caffeine applied directly to the skin might help prevent damaging UV light from causing skin cancer.---Prior research indicated that mice that were fed caffeinated water and exposed to lamps that generated UVB radiation that damaged the DNA in their skin cells were able to kill off a greater percentage of their badly damaged cells and reduce the risk of cells becoming cancerous.--"Although it is known that coffee drinking is associated with a decreased risk of non-melanoma skin cancer, there now needs to be studies to determine whether topical caffeine inhibits sunlight-induced skin cancer," said Allan Conney, director of the Susan Lehman Cullman Laboratory for Cancer Research.---In this newly-published study, instead of inhibiting ATR with caffeinated water, Rutgers researchers, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Washington, genetically modified and diminished ATR in one group of mice. The results: the genetically modified mice developed tumors more slowly than the unmodified mice, had 69 percent fewer tumors than regular mice and developed four times fewer invasive tumors. The study also found, however, that when both groups of mice were exposed to chronic ultraviolet rays for an extended period of time, tumor development occurred in both the genetically modified and regular mice. What this seems to indicate, says Conney, is that inhibiting the ATR enzyme works best at the pre-cancerous stage before UV-induced skin cancers are fully developed.---According to the National Cancer Institute, sunlight-induced skin cancer is the most prevalent cancer in the United States with more than 1 million new cases each year. Although multiple human epidemiologic studies link caffeinated beverage intake with significant decreases in several different types of cancer, including skin cancer, just how and why coffee protects against the disease is unknown. "Caffeine might become a weapon in prevention because it inhibits ATR and also acts ad as a sunscreen and directly absorbs damaging UV light," said Conney.

But current technology does not pick up microscopic abnormalities, researcher says--- THURSDAY, Sept. 1 (HealthDay News) -- Microscopic brain lesions that are too small to be detected using brain imaging technology may be the cause of many common age-related problems such as shaking hands, stooped posture and difficulty walking, a new study says.--Researchers examined brain autopsies of 418 nuns and priests, average age 88 at death, who had been followed since 1994 as part of an aging study.

Signs of Aging May Be Linked to Undetected Blocked Brain Blood Vessels


ScienceDaily (Sep. 1, 2011) — Many common signs of aging, such as shaking hands, stooped posture and walking slower, may be due to tiny blocked vessels in the brain that can't be detected by current technology. In a study reported in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association, researchers examined brain autopsies of older people and found: Microscopic lesions or infarcts -- too small to be detected using brain imaging -- were in 30 percent of the brains of people who had no diagnosed brain disease or stroke.---Those who had the most trouble walking had multiple brain lesions.--Two-thirds of the people had at least one blood vessel abnormality, suggesting a possible link between the blocked vessels and the familiar signs of aging.---"This is very surprising," said Aron S. Buchman, M.D., lead author of the study and associate professor of neurological sciences at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. "There is a very big public health consequence because we're not capturing this 30 percent who have undiagnosed small vessel disease that is not picked up by current technology. How would you even get them on your radar? We need additional tools in our toolkit."---In 1994, the researchers began conducting annual exams of 1,100 older nuns and priests for signs of aging. The participants also donated their brains for examination after death. This study provides results on the first 418 brain autopsies (61 percent women, average 88 years old at death).--Although Parkinson's disease occurs in only 5 percent of older people, at least half of people 85 and older have mild symptoms associated with the disease.---Before the study, researchers believed that something more common, such as microscopic blocked vessels, might be causing the physical decline. The study's autopsies found the small lesions could only be seen under a microscope after participants died.---The lesions couldn't be detected by current scans.---During the annual exams of the nuns and priests, researchers used the motor skills portion of a Parkinson's disease survey to assess their physical abilities. Researchers observed and rated the participants':


Ability to maintain posture

Walking speed

Ability to get in and out of chairs

Ability to make turns when walking

Sense of dizziness


"Often the mild motor symptoms are considered an expected part of aging," said Buchman, who is also a member of the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center. "We shouldn't accept this as normal aging. We should try to fix it and understand it.---If there is an underlying cause, we can intervene and perhaps lessen the impact."---Co-authors are Sue E.

Mouse Study Could Give New Clues to Fighting Baldness


Stem cells within skin's fatty layer seem to help trigger hair growth


THURSDAY, Sept.1 (HealthDay News) -- Molecular signals from stem cells within the skin's fatty layer trigger hair growth in mice, a finding that may lead to new treatments for baldness in people, researchers report.--

"If we can get these fat cells in the skin to talk to the dormant stem cells at the base of the hair follicles, we might be able to get hair to grow again," senior study author Valerie Horsley, an assistant professor of molecular, cellular and developmental biology at Yale University, said in a university news release.

Details of the discovery appear in the Sept. 2 issue of the journal Cell.--

Stem cells are still present in the hair follicle roots of men with male pattern baldness, but the cells lose the ability to spur hair growth. It's been known that these follicle stem cells require signals from within the skin to grow hair, but until now, the source of those signals was unknown.--When hair dies, there's shrinkage of the layer of fat in the scalp that comprises most of the skin's thickness. When hair growth begins, the fat layer expands, the Yale team explained.---They found that hair regeneration in mice requires a type of stem cell (adipose precursor cells) involved in the creation of new skin fat cells. They also found that these cells produce molecules (platelet-derived growth factors) that are necessary to produce hair growth.---Scientists are trying to determine whether the signals that promote hair growth in mice are the same needed to produce hair growth in humans.--The work was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Connecticut Stem Cell Research Program.---SOURCE: Yale University, news release, Sept. 1, 2011


CStem cells can be gotten from bone marrow—and the easiest way to achieve this is by utilizing bones or whole meats with bones in a vinegar water and salt solution broiling them in a bout 6 hours to allow for penetration of the bone so that not only are they consumable but digestible as well and can have a re-engineering effect in restoring the body--- as well as utilizing gelatin and other parts of animals or plants—there is research validating spirulina as a key contributor in stem cell production---so this being added to ones diet may actually assist in the regeneration processs



'Plastic Bottle' Solution for Arsenic-Contaminated Water Threatening 100 Million People


With almost 100 million people in developing countries exposed to dangerously high levels of arsenic in their drinking water, and unable to afford complex purification technology, scientists have now described a simple, inexpensive method for removing arsenic based on chopped up pieces of ordinary plastic beverage bottles coated with a nutrient found in many foods and dietary supplements--ScienceDaily (Sep. 1, 2011) — With almost 100 million people in developing countries exposed to dangerously high levels of arsenic in their drinking water, and unable to afford complex purification technology, scientists have now described a simple, inexpensive method for removing arsenic based on chopped up pieces of ordinary plastic beverage bottles coated with a nutrient found in many foods and dietary supplements.---The report was part of the 242nd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), a major scientific meeting with 7,500 technical papers, being held in Denver Colorado the week of August 29.---"Dealing with arsenic contamination of drinking water in the developing world requires simple technology based on locally available materials," said study leader Tsanangurayi Tongesayi, Ph.D., professor of analytical and environmental chemistry at Monmouth University, West Long Branch, N.J. "Our process uses pieces of plastic water, soda pop and other beverage bottles. Coat the pieces with cysteine -- that's an amino acid found in dietary supplements and foods -- and stir the plastic in arsenic-contaminated water. This works like a magnet. The cysteine binds up the arsenic. Remove the plastic and you have drinkable water."

Tongesayi described laboratory tests of the plastic bottle arsenic removal method on water containing 20 parts per billion (ppb) of arsenic, which is two times the safe standard set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for drinking water. It produced drinkable water with 0.2 ppb of arsenic that more than meets the federal standard.--The technology is so straight-forward that people without technical skills can use it, Tongesayi said, citing that as one of its advantages over some of the existing arsenic-removal technologies. It can use discarded plastic bottles available locally, and the application of cysteine does not require complicated technology. Tongesayi is seeking funding or a commercial partner, which he said is the key to moving the arsenic-removing process into use in a relatively short time. The technology also has the potential for removing other potentially toxic heavy metals from drinking water.----Odorless, tasteless and colorless, arsenic enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in soil and rock that occur in some parts of the world, including parts of the United States, and from agricultural and industrial sources. Symptoms of arsenic poisoning include thickening and discoloration of the skin; stomach pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea; vision loss; and numbness in hands and feet. Arsenic also has been linked to cancer of the bladder, lungs, skin, kidney, nasal passages, liver and prostate.-Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by American Chemical Society.

Strokes Rising Among Teens, Young Adults- CDC


Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and other risk factors may be to blame, researchers say-- THURSDAY, Sept. 1 (HealthDay News) -- Strokes are on the rise among teens and young people, a new government report shows.

The number of people aged 15 to 44 hospitalized for stroke jumped by more than third between 1995 and 2008, say researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The increase may be due partly to the increasing numbers of young people who have diseases such as high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes -- diseases usually associated with older adults, they added.---High blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol are all risk factors for stroke, the researchers noted.---In the same 14-year period researchers noted a rise in stroke among youth, they discovered that diabetes, cholesterol and tobacco use "has also increased in adolescents and young adults experiencing stroke," said lead researcher Dr. Mary George, a medical officer in CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention.---"I was surprised to see the extent of cardiovascular risk factors in this young population," she said. The focus on controlling these risks has usually been among older adults, George said.--"We really need to encourage people to lead healthy lifestyles from the time they are very young[U1] ," she said. "Stroke is largely preventable and eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity, [and] avoiding tobacco and alcohol abuse can go a long way to prevent stroke."[U2] --The report was published in the Sept. 1 issue of the Annals of Neurology. For the study, George's team used data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project to find people hospitalized for stroke. --They found almost one in three ischemic stroke patients 15 to 34 years old -- and over half of those 35 to 44 -- had high blood pressure.---In addition, one-fourth of the patients 15 to 34 years old who had ischemic strokes also had diabetes. Among those female patients 15 to 34, one in four were smokers, as were one in three males aged 15 to 44. Moreover, many had high cholesterol and were obese, the researchers found.---According to the American Heart Association, stroke is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Eighty-seven percent of strokes are called ischemic strokes, where clots or plaque block blood flow to the brain. - Earlier studies found that stroke in teens and young adults accounted for 5 percent to 10 percent of all strokes, and that it is one of the top 10 causes of childhood death.---Dr. Larry B. Goldstein, director of the Duke University Stroke Center, commented that "the data presented in this study raises an alarm."

Traditionally, strokes in the very young have usually been caused by different factors than those in older people, he noted.--For adults, "advancing age is a major stroke risk factor, with rates approximately doubling for every decade over age 55 years," he said. "Although about a third of strokes occur in persons under age 65, rates in children and young adults tend to be quite low." But, he warned, the study suggests that "there appears to be increasing rates of traditional stroke risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, lipid disorders, tobacco use and alcohol abuse in the young who had increasing rates of hospitalizations for stroke," he said.---Although these data can not prove that such changes have caused the increase in stroke hospitalizations among young people, "it is becoming increasingly important to identify young persons who have risk factors that can be addressed with the goal of lowering their future chances of having a stroke," Goldstein said.---Another expert, Dr. Michael Katsnelson, an assistant professor of clinical neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, said that "the prevalence of risk factors for stroke seem to be increasing in the younger population. That makes sense with the obesity epidemic being what it is."---In addition, there is more awareness of stroke, he said. "So, young people who may have, in the past, dismissed seizures or a mini-stroke are going to the hospital and being diagnosed with stroke," he said.--SOURCES: Mary George, M.D., M.S.P.H., medical officer, Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Larry B.

Bone Marrow Elements--Stem cells--- Mesenchymal stem cell


The bone marrow stroma contain mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) (also called marrow stromal cells). These cells are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types. Cell types that MSCs have been shown to differentiate into in vitro or in vivo include osteoblasts, Osteoblasts are responsible for the growth and repair of Bones - Osteoblasts are responsible for the deposition of Calcium Phosphate and Collagen on the Protein matrix of the Bones during repair processes and during the transformation of Calcium into mature Bone.--Osteoblasts accelerate the healing/repair of Fractures. chondrocytes,-- Chondrocytes are responsible (Chondroblasts) for the formation of new and (Chondroclasts) the breaking down of old Cartilage:- Endogenous Chondroitin Sulfate is manufactured by Chondrocytes.  references-Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-beta) is produced by Chondrocytes.—myocytes-- Muscle Fibers are microscopic, elongated, cylindrical Cells that lie parallel to one another in Skeletal Muscle.  Each Muscle contains between 150,000 - 400,000 Muscle Fibers depending on the type of Muscle.  (Males generally have more Muscle Fibers in any given Muscle than females).---Muscle Fibers are composed of Myofibrils (which in turn are composed of Actomyosin (Myofilaments)).  Most Skeletal Muscles contain approximately 50% Type I Muscle Fibers and 50% Type II Muscle Fibers---adipocytes - Adipocytes are fat storage Cells present in Adipose Tissue.  Each Adipocyte contains a droplet of Triglycerides.  The Subcutaneous Tissue of the Skin is composed primarily of Adipocytes-- beta-pancreatic islets cells. The Islets of Langerhans are a series of small groups of Cells that are scattered throughout the Pancreas.--MSCs can also transdifferentiate into neuronal cells. Neurons are specialized Cells of the Nervous System.



Rendering Bone and Fat ---Basically this is a means to prepare and separate the bone and the fats and other components of bone—in food production they cook it down and then separate with a centrifuge ( spinning) and from there take the components and dehydrate them and mix as feed---what we are going to do is something similar with out the necessary separating we are going to use a slow cooker –if you don’t have one then a big pot will do –Add 1 cup of Vinegar ( any will do ) add salt –1-2 tsp – Add lamb or Goat bone ( cow will work as well even poultry bone ) fill til even with the  vinegar or just lightly higher -add rosemary ( 5-6 sprigs fresh or 1 tablespoon dry ) add Thyme –same measurements as the rosemary—add an essential oils of bay leaf 4 drops-and the essential oil of rosemary—add garlic 2-3 cloves put everything I the slow cooker ( or pot in the oven) and allow to slow cook on medium for a day—the next day the bone should be as soft or pretty close to soft as meat and in some cases almost melt in your mouth and will be very easy to chew and dissolve in the mouth---There will be gelatin in this –minerals—marrow and these will regenerate the system the marrow itself will have stem cells and other aminos for rebuilding the body.

Consume at your leisure---the reason we add those herbs and oils is to neutralize any negative impact that there maybe inside and to increase stability and antioxidant capabilities in the bone itself ---these can as well be ground into a blender and mixed with animal food to increase there regeneration as well—or you can ground down further and dry or dehydrate and use for future use or add to a garden

 Lugol's solution as one of the most effective broad-spectrum microbicide, and being specific for Candida and other fungi. I am not aware of a medical drug with equal effectiveness. Therefore health authorities in most or all developed countries are presently trying to make it unavailable for natural therapists and self-healing under the pretext that it might be used to produce illegal drugs. It is now difficult to obtain and I have become aware of deceptive methods being used by chemists or pharmacists (probably under instruction from health authorities).---In New Zealand, for instance, a product is being sold as 4% Lugol's solution with 250 mcg of total iodine per drop (from iodine and potassium iodine)[U1] . People used this product for Candida treatment without realizing that the iodine content is only 4% of what it should be for Candida treatment. Therefore, instead of 8 drops per dose of regular Lugol's solution one would need to take 8 ml per dose of this product. Not realizing this, those who try this low-potency product will conclude that Lugol's solution does not work and (as hoped for by health authorities) may return to medical drugs.---

I suspect that similar tactics are also being used in other countries, especially in the EU. In Germany Lugol’s solution has been sold with a concentration of 0.7% total iodine, again without individuals realizing that this requires 15 times more drops than regular Lugol’s iodine. If you cannot obtain enough Lugol’s solution to last for 3 weeks then try to use a full dose for at least 5 days. ----In the US regular Lugol's solution with 10% total iodine (from 10% potassium iodide and 5% iodine in water) is now outlawed. The highest total amount of iodine allowed is 2.2%. In the US you are still able to buy Iodoral tablets with have the same iodine content as 2 drops [U2] of Lugol's solution, or 13 mg per standard tablet, but even 50 mg tablets are available. ----Therefore, when buying Lugol's solution, always compare the stated iodine values on the bottle with standard or regular Lugol's solution. This has a total iodine concentration of 10% from 10g of potassium iodide and 5g of elemental iodine per 100 ml, and nominal 6.5 mg of iodine per drop. If nothing else is available you may experiment with medical iodine preparations, which may be in alcohol or other solvents. I believe that these are less effective and more dangerous than Lugol's solution. I have had communications from individuals who believed that they were allergic to iodine because they reacted to medical preparations while subsequently they had no problems with Lugol's solution. Here are some iodine-related links. Presently you can still buy genuine Lugol's solution from To use Lugol's solution for Candida elimination and anti-microbial therapy see The Ultimate Cleanse. For more detailed information on using iodine in maintaining health and treating diseases see Iodine: Bring Back the Universal Nutrient Medicine.

Recipe for-Dental Bleach


This is for use during dental work and for occasional denture cleaning. Do not use it as a regular mouthwash or as a daily denture soak. You would get too much chlorine.---The chemical name for bleach is hypochlorite. There are different grades. The grade used for laundry is not acceptable. Purchase “USP” or NSF quality from your local pool and spa store. Try to find the 5 or 6% strength you are used to. Also search the Internet for local NSF brands. If you can only find 12%, notice that it is twice as strong as you are used to! Take it to an expert chemist, like your pharmacist, to help you dilute it to 6% first. This means equal parts bleach and water.  Always add bleach to water instead of water to bleach. You will need 2 empty HDPE2 gallon jugs with screw cap lids (not snap-on), like vinegar bottles. Check the bottom for those letters. Rinse and fill each empty jug halfway with pure water first, then fill each one to the top with 12% bleach. Notice that you will get 2 gallons of 6% bleach this way, the strength you are used to.-- Do not store any 12% bleach in your home-not even in the garage. It must all be changed into 6% as soon as you bring it home. Do not store the 6% bottles under your sink. Put them in your laundry room, on a very high shelf.

 Although you will now be using an acceptable grade of 6% bleach this doesn’t mean you can use any quantity you want. Bleach is very caustic. It must be diluted before you can use it without harm. Please follow these directions carefully.

1 tsp. (5 ml) bleach, USP grade (5-6% hypochlorite)

1 pint water (500 ml)

Use a HDPE2 pint bottle (see Sources). Fill with pure water.

 Use a plastic teaspoon to measure and mix. The result is 0.05% hypochlorite. This is only a quarter as strong as the 0.2% solution recommended by Bunyan, but is strong enough.Keep out of reach of children. If accidentally swallowed, give milk to drink and see a doctor at once.--- We will name your new diluted bleach that you have just made, Dental Bleach. It is only 1 % as strong as regular bleach. Even this may be too strong for you. Try it at home first. You may dilute it further, in half. Then take it with you to the dentist, along with a safe cup. You will need 1/2 cup. Rinse your mouth with it just before you sit down in the dental chair. Never swallow it! Spit it into the receptacle. Hold your antiseptic in your lap. Later, when the dentist signals you to rinse your mouth, use your solution again. Also rinse one last time before leaving the office. The dentist will appreciate this extra care because she/he is less likely to see post-dental infection in you. ---- this may be used as well in other applications to fight off infection or used in cleaning



Lugol’s Iodine Solution

 It is too dangerous to buy commercially prepared solution for your internal use. It is certain to be polluted with isopropyl alcohol or wood alcohol. Make it yourself or ask you pharmacist to help you. You must see the stock bottles, not trust the pharmacist. The recipe to make 1 liter (quart) is:

44gm (1 and 1/2 ounces) iodine, granular, USP

88 gm (3 ounces) potassium iodide, granular, USP

large HDPE2 bottle with screw cap (see Sources)

diet scales and plastic cup and spoon.---- Dissolve the potassium iodide in about a cup of water in HPDE container. Then add the iodine crystals and wait till they are all dissolved. This could take 1/2 hour with frequent shaking. Then fill to the liter mark with pure water. (Draw a permanent line here). Be careful to avoid laundry bleach water for preparation or you would pollute it yourself. Place a zippered bag, not kitchen wrap, over the top; then close tightly before storing. Keep out of sight and reach of children. Do everything inside the kitchen sink. Wipe stains up promptly with vitamin C. The dropper bottle should be made of polyethylene with built in drop dispenser or a separate pipette (see page 444)


Another way to make it


Lugol's iodine solution         


 1. Potassium iodide: 10 g

 2. Distilled water: 100 ml

 3. Iodine crystals: 5 g



 A. Dissolve 10 g potassium iodide in 100 ml of distilled water.

 B. Slowly add 5 g iodine crystals, while shaking.

 C. Filter and store in a tightly stoppered brown bottle


Asian Honey, Banned in Europe, Is Flooding U.S. Grocery Shelves


FDA has the laws needed to keep adulterated honey off store shelves but does little, honey industry says. A third or more of all the honey consumed in the U.S. is likely to have been smuggled in from China and may be tainted with illegal antibiotics and heavy metals.  A Food Safety News investigation has documented that millions of pounds of honey banned as unsafe in dozens of countries are being imported and sold here in record quantities. ---And the flow of Chinese honey continues despite assurances from the Food and Drug Administration and other federal officials that the hundreds of millions of pounds reaching store shelves were authentic and safe following the widespread arrests and convictions of major smugglers over the last two years.-Experts interviewed by Food Safety News say some of the largest and most long-established U.S. honey packers are knowingly buying mislabeled, transshipped or possibly altered honey so they can sell it cheaper than those companies who demand safety, quality and rigorously inspected honey. ---"It's no secret that the honey smuggling is being driven by money, the desire to save a couple of pennies a pound," said Richard Adee, who is the Washington Legislative Chairman of the American Honey Producers Association. --"These big packers are still using imported honey of uncertain safety that they know is illegal because they know their chances of getting caught are slim,[U3] " Adee said.--

Food safety investigators from the European Union barred all shipments of honey from India because of the presence of lead and illegal animal antibioticsFurther, they found an even larger amount of honey apparently had been concocted without the help of bees, made from artificial sweeteners and then extensively filtered to remove any proof of contaminants or adulteration or indications of precisely where the honey actually originated. ---An examination of international and government shipping tallies, customs documents and interviews with some of North America's top honey importers and brokers documented the rampant honey laundering and that a record amount of the Chinese honey was being purchased by major U.S. packers. --Food Safety News contacted Suebee Co-Op, the nation's oldest and largest honey packer and seller, for a response to these allegations and to learn where it gets its honey. The co-op did not respond to repeated calls and emails for comment. Calls and emails to other major honey sellers also were unreturned.


EU Won't Accept Honey from India---Much of this questionable honey was officially banned beginning June 2010 by the 27 countries of the European Union and others. But on this side of the ocean, the FDA checks few of the thousands of shipments arriving through 22 American ports each year. ---According to FDA data, between January and June, just 24 honey shipments were stopped from entering the country. The agency declined to say how many loads are inspected and by whom.


However, during that same period, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that almost 43 million pounds of honey entered the U.S. Of that, the Department of Commerce said 37.7 million pounds came from India, the same honey that is banned in the EU because it contained animal medicine and lead and lacked the proper paperwork to prove it didn't come from China[U5] .--"There are still millions of pounds of transshipped Chinese honey coming in the U.S. and it's all coming now from India and Vietnam and everybody in the industry knows that," said Elise Gagnon, president of Odem International, a worldwide trading house that specializes in bulk raw honey. --The FDA says it has regulations prohibiting foods banned in other countries from entering the U.S. However, the agency said last month that it "would not know about honey that has been banned from other countries ...[U6] "

Adee called the FDA's response "absurd." He said the European ban against Indian honey is far from a secret.---"Why are we the dumping ground of the world for something that's banned in all these other countries?" asked Adee, who, with 80,000 bee colonies in five states, is the country's largest honey producer.---"We're supposed to have the world's safest food supply but we're letting in boatloads of this adulterated honey that all these other countries know is contaminated and FDA does nothing."---The food safety agency said it's doing the best it can with existing resources and will do more when the newly passed Food Safety Modernization Act is up and running.[U7]  ---Where Is Our Honey Coming From? --The U.S. consumes about 400 million pounds of honey a year - about 1.3 pounds a person. About 35 percent is consumed in homes, restaurants and institutions. The remaining 65 percent is bought by industry for use in cereals, baked goods, sauces, beverages and hundreds of different processed foods.---However, the USDA says U.S. beekeepers can only supply about a 48 percent of what's needed here.  The remaining 52 percent comes from 41 other countries.[U8]   

Import Genius, a private shipping intelligence service, searched its databases of all U.S. Customs import data for Food Safety News and provided a telling breakdown - The U.S. imported 208 million pounds of honey over the past 18 months. - About 48 million pounds came from trusted and usually reliable suppliers in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Uruguay and Mexico.---- Almost 60 percent of what was imported - 123 million pounds - came from Asian countries - traditional laundering points for Chinese honey. This included 45 million pounds from India alone.---"This should be a red flag to FDA and the federal investigators. India doesn't have anywhere near the capacity - enough bees - to produce 45 million pounds of honey. It has to come from China," said Adee, who also is a past president of the American Honey Producers Association.


Why Is Chinese Honey Considered Dangerous?


Chinese honeymakers began using various illegal methods to conceal the origin of their honey beginning in about 2001. That's when the U.S. Commerce Department imposed a stiff tariff - as much as $1.20 a pound -- on Chinese honey to dissuade that country from dumping its dirt-cheap product on the American market and forcing hundreds of U.S. beekeepers out of the business.-About the same time, Chinese beekeepers saw a bacterial epidemic of foulbrood disease race through their hives at wildfire speed, killing tens of millions of bees. They fought the disease with several Indian-made animal antibiotics, including chloramphenicol. Medical researchers found that children given chloramphenicol as an antibiotic are susceptible to DNA damage and carcinogenicity. Soon after, the FDA banned its presence in food.---

Marijuana Ingredients Show Promise In Battling Superbugs


Substances in marijuana show promise for fighting deadly drug-resistant bacterial infections, including so-called "superbugs," without causing the drug's mood-altering effects, scientists in Italy and the United Kingdom are reporting.   ScienceDaily (Sep. 8, 2008) — Substances in marijuana show promise for fighting deadly drug-resistant bacterial infections, including so-called "superbugs," without causing the drug's mood-altering effects, scientists in Italy and the United Kingdom are reporting.

Besides serving as infection-fighting drugs, the substances also could provide a more environmentally-friendly alternative to synthetic antibacterial substances now widely used in personal care items, including soaps and cosmetics, they say. ---In the new study, Giovanni Appendino and colleagues point out that scientists have known for years that marijuana contains antibacterial substances. However, little research has been done on those ingredients, including studies on their ability to fight antibiotic resistant infections, the scientists say. To close that gap, researchers tested five major marijuana ingredients termed cannabinoids on different strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a "superbug" increasingly resistant to antibiotics.---All five substances showed potent germ-killing activity against these drug-resistant strains, as did some synthetic non-natural cannabinoids, they say. The scientists also showed that these substances appear to kill bacteria by different mechanisms than conventional antibiotics, making them more likely to avoid bacterial resistance, the scientists note. At least two of the substances have no known mood-altering effects, suggesting that they could be developed into marijuana-based drugs without causing a "high."---Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by American Chemical Society.-Journal Reference-Appendino et al.

Harmless Soil-Dwelling Bacteria Successfully Kill Cancer


ScienceDaily (Sep. 5, 2011) — A bacterial strain that specifically targets tumours could soon be used as a vehicle to deliver drugs in frontline cancer therapy. The strain is expected to be tested in cancer patients in 2013, says a scientist at the Society for General Microbiology's Autumn Conference at the University of York.

The therapy uses Clostridium sporogenes -- a bacterium that is widespread in the soil. Spores of the bacterium are injected into patients and only grow in solid tumours, where a specific bacterial enzyme is produced. An anti-cancer drug is injected separately into the patient in an inactive 'pro-drug' form. When the pro-drug reaches the site of the tumour, the bacterial enzyme activates the drug, allowing it to destroy only the cells in its vicinity -- the tumour cells.[U1] --Researchers at the University of Nottingham and the University of Maastricht have now overcome the hurdles that have so far prevented this therapy from entering clinical trials. They have introduced a gene for a much-improved version of the enzyme into the C. sporogenes DNA. The improved enzyme can now be produced in far greater quantities in the tumour than previous versions, and is more efficient at converting the pro-drug into its active form.---A fundamental requirement for any new cancer therapy is the ability to target cancer cells while excluding healthy cells. Professor Nigel Minton, who is leading the research, explains how this therapy naturally fulfils this need. "Clostridia are an ancient group of bacteria that evolved on the planet before it had an oxygen-rich atmosphere and so they thrive in low oxygen conditions. When Clostridia spores are injected into a cancer patient, they will only grow in oxygen-depleted environments, i.e. the centre of solid tumours.[U2]  This is a totally natural phenomenon, which requires no fundamental alterations and is exquisitely specific. We can exploit this specificity to kill tumour cells but leave healthy tissue unscathed," he said.---The research may ultimately lead to a simple and safe procedure for curing a wide range of solid tumours. "This therapy will kill all types of tumour cell. The treatment is superior to a surgical procedure, especially for patients at high risk or with difficult tumour locations," explained Professor Minton. "We anticipate that the strain we have developed will be used in a clinical trial in 2013 led by Jan Theys and Philippe Lambin at the University of Maastricht in The Netherlands. A successful outcome could lead to its adoption as a frontline therapy for treating solid tumours. If the approach is successfully combined with more traditional approaches this could increase our chance of winning the battle against cancerous tumours."--Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by Society for General Microbiology, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS

Mildew Recipe


To clean mildew, you’ll need some distilled white vinegar, an empty spray bottle, baking soda, gloves, and an aggressively abrasive sponge. Vinegar will kill mildew, germs and bacteria and is extremely cheap. Cleaning mildew with vinegar will also do away with that nasty mildew odor. The baking soda and sponges help remove mildew stains. Lastly, you’ll need a mask. An N-95 – which is sold at any hardware store – will suffice.---Fill the empty spray bottle with the white vinegar and don’t dilute. Liberally spray all the affected areas and be sure to make either laser or blasting sound effects as you do it. Mildew is easily intimidated and confused. After spraying the mildew, let it sit for a couple of hours to allow the vinegar to penetrate and kill the mildew in cold blood.---When the vinegar has had time to set, dampen your scrubbing sponge with hot water and load it with baking soda. I give the mildew one last taste of vinegar, and then scrub away.

While you’re at it, you may as well clean the area of dirt and soap scum. Vinegar and baking soda is the way to go even if you’re not trying to clean mildew, but just everyday, ordinary filth.


How to Clean Mildew: Moldy Caulk


The trouble with bathroom mildew is that if the problem has been left unchecked on caulking for some time, you’ll just have to remove the caulking completely. It will be impossible to clean and it will deteriorate and break apart, letting moisture into the walls. Though it’s an added hassle in the fight to clean mildew, it isn’t hard. You’ll need a mask and gloves, and some vinegar wouldn’t hurt. Spray the caulking with vinegar as usual and scrape it away with a flat-head screwdriver. Rather than let the caulk chunks (also not related to STDs) float down the drain, toss them in a garbage bag and sealed it. Let the tub sit for a day or so to dry completely – a fan may help with this. Don’t wait too long to apply some fresh caulking, however, as without the barrier you’ll end up with moisture and then mold in your walls.



Making Mistakes While Learning Has Memory Benefits for Older Brains


ScienceDaily (Aug. 24, 2011) — Canadian researchers have found the first evidence that older brains get more benefit than younger brains from learning information the hard way -- via trial-and-error learning.--The study was led by scientists at Baycrest's Rotman Research Institute in Toronto and appears online Aug. 24, 2011 in the journal Psychology and Aging, ahead of the print edition.

The finding will surprise professional educators and cognitive rehabilitation clinicians as it challenges a large body of published science which has shown that making mistakes while learning information hurts memory performance for older adults, and that passive "errorless" learning (where the correct answer is provided) is better suited to older brains.---"The scientific literature has traditionally embraced errorless learning for older adults. However, our study has shown that if older adults are learning material that is very conceptual, where they can make a meaningful relationship between their errors and the correct information that they are supposed to remember, in those cases the errors can actually be quite beneficial for the learning process," said Andreé-Ann Cyr, the study's lead investigator.---Cyr conducted the research at Baycrest as a doctoral student in Psychology (University of Toronto), in collaboration with senior author and scientist Dr. Nicole Anderson of Baycrest's Rotman Research Institute. Dr. Anderson specializes in cognitive rehabilitation research with older adults.

In two separate studies, researchers compared the memory benefits of trial-and-error learning (TEL) with errorless learning (EL) in memory exercises with groups of healthy young and older adults. The young adults were in their 20s; the older adults' average age was 70. TEL is considered a more effortful cognitive encoding process where the brain has to "scaffold" its way to making richer associations and linkages in order to reach the correct target information[U3] . Errorless learning (EL) is considered passive, or less taxing on the brain, because it provides the correct answer to be remembered during the learning process.---The researchers presented participants with a meaningful "cue" (e.g. type of tooth). The correct target word (e.g. molar) was shown to learners in the EL condition. In the TEL condition, the cue was presented alone, and participants made two guesses (such as canine, incisor) before the correct target "molar" was shown. After a short while, participants performed a memory test that required them to remember the context in which the words were learned (i.e. were they learned through trial-and-error or not).----In both studies, participants remembered the learning context of the target words better if they had been learned through trial-and-error, relative to the errorless condition. This was especially true for the older adults whose performance benefited approximately 2.5 times more relative to their younger peers.


The findings from the Baycrest study may have important implications for how information is taught to older adults in the classroom, and for rehabilitation procedures aimed at delaying cognitive decline -- procedures which rely on knowledge of how to train an aging brain, said Cyr.

The authors say future studies are needed to determine how different study materials and memory tasks impact the effect of errors on memory in aging. This will help to clarify the learning contexts in which errors should be avoided or harnessed. The study was funded by a doctoral award and research grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council.Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care.--Journal Reference: Andrée-Ann Cyr, Nicole D.

Exercise Boosts Health by Influencing Stem Cells to Become Bone, Not Fat


ScienceDaily (Sep. 9, 2011) — McMaster researchers have found one more reason to exercise: working out triggers influential stem cells to become bone instead of fat, improving overall health by boosting the body's capacity to make blood.--The body's mesenchymal stem cells are most likely to become fat or bone, depending on which path they follow. Using treadmill[U1] -conditioned mice, a team led by the Department of Kinesiology's Gianni Parise has shown that aerobic exercise triggers those cells to become bone more often than fat.--The exercising mice ran less than an hour, three times a week, enough time to have a significant impact on their blood production, says Parise, an associate professor.--In sedentary mice, the same stem cells were more likely to become fat, impairing blood production in the marrow cavities of bones.[U2]  The research appears in a new paper published by the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.--"The interesting thing was that a modest exercise program was able to significantly increase blood cells in the marrow and in circulation," says Parise. "What we're suggesting is that exercise is a potent stimulus -- enough of a stimulus to actually trigger a switch in these mesenchymal stem cells."[U3]  The composition of cells in the bone marrow cavity has an important influence on the productivity of blood stem cells.--In ideal conditions, blood stem cells create healthy blood that boosts the immune system, permits the efficient uptake of oxygen, and improves the ability to clot wounds.

Bone cells improve the climate for blood stem cells to make blood.\

But when fat cells start to fill the bone marrow cavity -- a common symptom of sedentary behavior -- blood stem cells become less productive, and conditions such as anemia can result.--The findings add to the growing list of established benefits of exercise, Parise says, and suggest that novel non-medicinal treatments for blood-related disorders may be in the future. "Some of the impact of exercise is comparable to what we see with pharmaceutical intervention," he says. "Exercise has the ability to impact stem cell biology. It has the ability to influence how they differentiate."

A Story Missing from Our Media ~ Iceland's On Going Revolution By Deena Stryker.


 An Italian radio program's story

 about Iceland’s on-going revolution is a stunning example of how little  our media tells us about the rest of the world.  We may remember that at   the start of the 2008 financial crisis, Iceland literally went  bankrupt.  The reasons were mentioned only in passing, and since then,

 this little-known member of the European Union fell back into oblivion.


 As  one European country after another fails or risks failing, imperiling  the Euro, with repercussions for the entire world, the last thing the  powers that be want is for Iceland to become an example.  Here's why:  Five years of a pure neo-liberal regime had made Iceland, (population  320 thousand, no army), one of the richest countries in the world. In  2003 all the country’s banks were privatised, and in an effort to attract foreign investors, they offered on-line banking whose minimal  costs allowed them to offer relatively high rates of return.  The  accounts, called IceSave, attracted many UK and Dutch small investors.  But as investments grew, so did the banks’ foreign debt.  In 2003  Iceland’s debt was equal to 200 times its GNP, but in 2007, it was 900  percent.  The 2008 world financial crisis was the coup de grace. The  three main Icelandic banks, Landbanki, Kapthing and Glitnir, went belly  up and were nationalised, while the Kroner lost 85% of its value with  respect to the Euro.  At the end of the year Iceland declared  bankruptcy.  Contrary to what could be expected, the crisis resulted in Icelanders  recovering their sovereign rights, through a process of direct  participatory democracy that eventually led to a new Constitution.  But  only after much pain.  Geir Haarde, the Prime Minister of a Social Democratic coalition  government, negotiated a two million one hundred thousand dollar loan,  to which the Nordic countries added another two and a half million.  But the foreign financial community pressured Iceland to impose  Drastic  measures.  The FMI and the European Union wanted to take over its debt,  claiming this was the only way for the country to pay back Holland and  Great Britain, who had promised to reimburse their citizens.  Protests and riots continued, eventually forcing the government to  resign.  Elections were brought forward to April 2009, resulting in a  left-wing coalition which condemned the neoliberal economic system, but  immediately gave in to its demands that Iceland pay off a total of  three and a half million Euros.  This required each Icelandic citizen  to pay  100 Euros a month (or about $130) for fifteen years, at 5.5% interest,  to pay off a debt incurred by private parties vis a vis other private

 parties.  It was the straw that broke the reindeer’s back.  What happened next was extraordinary.  The belief that citizens had  to pay for the mistakes of a financial monopoly, that an entire nation  must be taxed to pay off private debts was shattered, transforming the

 relationship between citizens and their political institutions and  eventually driving Iceland’s leaders to the side of their constituents.   The Head of State, Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, refused to ratify the law  that would have made Iceland’s citizens responsible for its bankers’

 debts, and accepted calls for a referendum.  Of course the international community only increased the pressure on  Iceland.  Great Britain and Holland threatened dire reprisals that  would isolate the country.  As Icelanders went to vote, foreign  bankers  threatened to block any aid from the IMF.  The British government  threatened to freeze Icelander savings and checking accounts.  As

 Grimsson said: “We were told that if we refused the international  community’s conditions, we would become the Cuba of the North.  But if  we had accepted, we would have become the Haiti of the North.” (How  many times have I written that when Cubans see the dire state of their  neighbor, Haiti, they count themselves lucky.)  In the March 2010 referendum, 93% voted against repayment of the  debt.  The IMF immediately froze its loan.  But the revolution (though

 not televised in the United States), would not be intimidated. With the  support of a furious citizenry, the government launched civil and penal  investigations into those responsible for the financial crisis.

 Interpol put out an international arrest warrant for the ex-president  of Kaupthing, Sigurdur Einarsson, as the other bankers implicated in  the  crash fled the country.  But Icelanders didn't stop there: they decided to draft a new  constitution that would free the country from the exaggerated power of  international finance and virtual money.  (The one in use had been  written when Iceland gained its independence from Denmark, in 1918, the  only difference with the Danish constitution being that the word  ‘president’ replaced the word ‘king’.)  To write the new constitution, the people of Iceland elected  twenty-five citizens from among 522 adults not belonging to any  political party but recommended by at least thirty citizens. This  document was not the work of a handful of politicians, but was written  on the internet. The constituent’s meetings are streamed on-line, and  citizens can send their comments and suggestions, witnessing the  document as it takes shape. The constitution that eventually emerges  from this participatory democratic process will be submitted to  parliament for approval after the next elections.  Some readers will remember that Iceland’s ninth century agrarian  collapse was featured in Jared Diamond’s book by the same name. Today,  that country is recovering from its financial collapse in ways just the  opposite of those generally considered unavoidable, as confirmed  yesterday by the new head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde to Fareed  Zakaria. The people of Greece have been told that the privatization of  their public sector is the only solution And those of Italy, Spain  and Portugal are facing the same threat.  They should look to Iceland. Refusing to bow to foreign interests,  that small country stated loud and clear that the people are  sovereign.  That’s why it is not in the news anymore



Scientists Discover Blood Factors That Appear to Cause Aging in Brains of Mice


Tony Wyss-Coray and his colleagues found substances in the blood of old mice that appear to inhibit the brain's ability to produce new nerve cells critical to memory. ScienceDaily (Sep. 9, 2011) — Memo to mature, health-minded vampires: You might want to consider limiting your treats to victims under age 30.--In a study to be published Sept. 1 in Nature, Stanford University School of Medicine scientists have found substances in the blood of old mice that makes young brains act older. These substances, whose levels rise with increasing age, appear to inhibit the brain's ability to produce new nerve cells critical to memory and learning.---The findings raise the question of whether it might be possible to shield the brain from aging by eliminating or mitigating the effects of these apparently detrimental blood-borne substances, or perhaps by identifying other blood-borne substances that exert rejuvenating effects on the brain but whose levels decline with age, said associate professor of neurology and neurological sciences Tony Wyss-Coray, PhD, the study's senior author. Wyss-Coray is also associate director of the Center for Tissue Regeneration, Repair and Restoration at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System.--It was long thought that the adult human brain produces no new nerve cells. But it is now known that in at least two places in mammalian brains, including those of mice and humans, such new cells continue to be formed throughout adulthood. One of these places is the dentate gyrus -- part of a key brain region, the hippocampus, where new experiences are locked into memory. As in other tissues, new cells in these brain areas can arise there only because of the presence of stem cells, which can both replicate themselves and spin off daughter cells that differentiate to become dedicated nerve cells. The number of stem cells in adult brains diminishes with increasing age, as do certain cognitive capacities, such as spatial memory: An example in humans is remembering where you parked the car -- or, if you are a mouse, recalling the whereabouts of an underwater platform you can perch on so you won't have to keep swimming in order to keep your nose above water.--- An early step in the Stanford team's study involved connecting the circulatory systems of pairs of old and young mice via a surgical procedure, so that blood from the two mice comingled. "This way, we could examine the effects of old mice's blood on young mice's brains, and vice versa," said Saul Villeda, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher in Wyss-Coray's laboratory, who led the study en route to his doctoral thesis. (The procedure was pioneered by study co-author and neurology and neurological sciences professor Thomas Rando, MD, PhD, who has used it to demonstrate that young blood can rejuvenate old muscle.)---The mixing of old and young blood produced changes in both the young and the old mice's brains. For one thing, the older mouse in these pairs produced more new nerve cells in their dentate gyrus than solo older mice did.---"We saw a threefold increase in the number of new nerve cells being generated in old mice exposed to this 'younger' environment," said Wyss-Coray. In contrast, the young members of old/young mouse pairs exhibited fewer new nerve cells in the dentate gyrus than did young mice untethered to elders.--The investigators then turned to the question of precisely what, in blood, was producing the effect. To rule out the possibility that an exchange of cells between the young and old mice was responsible, they created circulation-sharing young/old mouse pairs, one of whose members had been genetically engineered so that every one of its cells would glow green when exposed to light. In each case, green cells from the modified mouse turned up in the blood of the other mouse in the pair, as might be expected, but virtually never in the brain of the non-modified mouse. Clearly, some other substances besides cells from each mouse's blood were affecting its partner's brain.--Moreover, when plasma -- the cell-free fraction of blood -- from old mice was injected into young mice, it wrought the same deleterious changes in their dentate gyrus as if they'd been sharing blood with older mice. And on spatial-navigation tasks, such as finding a high spot to rest on in a water-filled chamber, young mice who had received injections of older mice's plasma performed more poorly than a group that got injections of plasma from younger mice. The "old-blood" mice seemed to learn the desirable location as easily as the "youngbloods" did -- but they forgot it more quickly, a sign of impaired hippocampal function.---To identify specific circulating factors associated with aging and tissue degeneration or tissue regeneration, the researchers assayed 66 different immune-signaling proteins found in mice's blood. Six of these factors were elevated in both unpaired old mice and young mice that had been paired with older ones.--At the top of the list was eotaxin, a small protein that attracts a certain type of immune cells to areas where it has been secreted by other types of cells. Highlighting this discovery's possible relevance to humans, tests that Wyss-Coray's team conducted on blood and cerebrospinal fluid samples drawn from healthy people between the ages of 20 and 90 showed a parallel age-related increase in eotaxin. In humans, eotaxin is associated with allergic responses and asthma.

Normal young-adult mice given eotaxin injections exhibited deficient generation of new nerve cells in their dentate gyrus. So did both young mice administered plasma from old mice and young mice whose circulatory systems were joined with those of old mice -- an effect that could be countered by injections of another substance that blocks eotaxin's action. Eotaxin injections also impaired performance on spatial-memory tests.---Other blood-borne factors are probably significant players in aging-related declines in cognitive function. One of the six substances identified in the protein screen by Wyss-Coray's group was MCP-1, a chemical that, in mice and humans, attracts immune cells called macrophages. Associate professor of neurosurgery Theo Palmer, PhD, has previously linked inflammation-triggered elevations of MCP-1 levels to reduced stem-cell numbers in the dentate gyrus.---The Wyss-Coray group is now testing eotaxin's potential role in memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease, and is developing expanded blood-protein assays in a hunt for "rejuvenating" factors in blood that may prove useful in treating dementia and, perhaps, slowing the aging process in older brains.

Recipe—Blood rejuvenating requires simple practices and foods that can restore the blood—the practice requires to eat foods that support the bones like celery and veges with stems and the use of beets and highly mineralized veges like parlsey –dandelion-watercress-sea weed—rocket—chard—when juiced they will cause a huge cleanse and purge in the blood to remove unwanted dead cells and poison that may accumulate as a result of exposure to chemicals and toxins and sugar that are consumed that damage blood via through organ an mineral depletion---utilizing berries as well can have a profound effect on blood restoration—even drinking wine since wine has all 13 minerals for life---


Consuming fermented foods will assist with this as well and the use of sea algaes can attribute to the enriched mineral usage—fermented foods such as yogurt or kefir ( plain and with fat ) will have bone and mineral supporting properties


Herbs that can be used as a tea or in soups are nettle-parlsey-dandelion-milk thistle-burdock-gentian-plantain-wheat grass-spirulina—sarsaparilla-sea weed-watercress-rocket-purslane and yellow dock are a few to mention make a tea or soup with any of these and add gelatin to assist in the uptake of the nutrients and antioxidants and minerals these plants have to offer you—in making the teas start off with a 2-3 cup of water dosage –put that much in a pot and add a tablespoon increment in the water –when you are comfortable combine any combination you like or drink singularly—bring to a boil and allow to set afterwards for a few minutes and proceed to pour trough a strainer and drink if need to be sweetened then apply maple syrup or unpasteurized honey or xylitol or stevia to it til you can get yourself to a point of non sweetened tea –this is a toughy since we are all addicted to sugar---but give it time--Or just use the sweetening either way is good


Keep in mind to Use Vitamin C as much as you can with these due to the fact that there are some minerals in these herbs and plants that will need vitamin C to uptake them into specific areas of the system or to convert there materials into something usable—


Keep in mind a lot of these herbs as well will assist in bone integrity and stem cell production



USU research professor studies 'pasture pharmacy'


LOGAN -- A research professor at Utah State University is conducting experiments that may help farm animals live a more healthy life, which is something the agriculture industry is keeping a close eye on. -- But what makes this study different: the animals will basically treat themselves.  USU research professor Juan Villalba has been studying sheep and goat behavior for several years, in an effort to reduce certain diseases that affect those animals.

 "Parasites are one of the big problems -- health problems of livestock animals," Villalba said.  Not only can parasites kill animals, but they can also cause other detrimental health effects and can affect the taste of meat.  Conventional farming methods of treating diseases -- using antibiotics and other chemicals -- has created parasites that are becoming resistant to drugs, which is a concern worldwide.  So, in the lab, as well as in a controlled nine-acre pasture environment at Utah State, Villalba has been testing various plants that have certain medicinal properties that kill internal parasites.[U4]  "So, by the animals selecting these compounds by themselves, then that reduces the problem of resistance, because only the animals who are sick are going to seek the particular plant products."–Juan Villalba-- Starting with the barrels of feed, Villalba planted test patches in the field, mixing alfalfa and plants with medicinal compounds, which basically was a medicine cabinet for the sheep. --- When microscopic tissue samples showed animals infected with a parasite, Villalba noticed the sick animals would migrate from the basic alfalfa field to the mix of plants that made them feel better. No chemicals at work here, just nature. --- "So, by the animals selecting these compounds by themselves, then that reduces the problem of resistance, because only the animals who are sick are going to seek the particular plant products," Villalba said.  And as animals started feeling better, Villalba said he noticed the sheep went back to eating their normal diet.  In the future, Villalba said, instead of traditional chemicals and medicines, treating certain animal diseases may be just a matter of planting a "pasture pharmacy," letting animals decide when they need a prescription.  Villalba said studies like his will continue, and perhaps expand to other types of crops that other animals, such as beef cattle, graze on.



Why Statins Do More Harm Than Good


Americans have been well trained over the past few decades to avoid dietary fat and cholesterol and to stay out of the sun. Their conscientious implementation of this misguided advice has led to an epidemic in obesity and heart disease, along with a host of other debilitating conditions like arthritis and Alzheimer's disease. Cholesterol is to animals as chlorophyll is to plants. Cholesterol, absent from plants, is what gives animals mobility and a nervous system. It is therefore not surprising that statin drug side effects mainly impact muscles and the nervous systemThe heart, as a muscle, is not exempt from statin toxicityThis is why the incidence of heart failure has steadily risen in step with the widespread adoption of statin therapy, now displacing cardiovascular disease as the number one killer. Research has caused me to hypothesize a remarkable feat that the human body can perform in the presence of sunlight, which is to extract sulfur from hydrogen sulfide in the air and convert it to sulfate, taking advantage of the sun's energy to catalyze the reaction. This process takes place in the skin upon sun exposure, and also in the endothelial cells lining blood vessels, and in the red blood cells, platelets, and mast cells in the blood.  This feat is performed by a very interesting molecule called "endothelial nitric oxide synthase,'' a misnomer, since its main responsibility is to synthesize sulfate rather than nitric oxide. The sulfate so produced plays a huge role in cardiovascular health, both by preventing blood clots and by keeping pathogenic microbes (bacteria and viruses) at bay.  But it also plays another role that is just as important, which is to give cholesterol (as well as vitamin D and other sterols) a free ride through the blood stream.  Vitamin D3 (a highly touted nutrient) is synthesized in the skin from cholesterol (a highly demonized nutrient) and its chemical structure is almost identical to that of cholesterol. By attaching to cholesterol or vitamin D3, sulfate makes the molecule water soluble, and this means that it no longer has to travel packaged up inside an LDL particle. LDL, as you probably know, is the so-called "bad'' cholesterol, which will cause doctors to prescribe statins if the level is too high. A great way to lower LDL levels is to get adequate sun exposure. It's not going to work to take a vitamin D supplement: you have to go outside and soak up the sun, because supplements are never sulfated and vitamin D is not cholesterol. Raw cow's milk is the only dietary source I know of that actually supplies sulfated vitamin D3, but even that is still not cholesterol sulfate. [U5] Because most Americans have inadequate cholesterol in their skin and grossly inadequate amounts of sun exposure, they suffer from a huge deficiency in cholesterol and sulfate supply to the tissues. Not surprisingly, most impacted are the muscles and nervous system. --Because the heart muscle is indispensible, the body has developed a back-up strategy to give it special treatment, which is to synthesize cholesterol sulfate from LDL and homocysteine in the fatty deposits (plaque) that build up in arteries supplying the heart. The macrophages in the plaque extract cholesterol from damaged small dense LDL particles, and export it to HDL-A1. The platelets in the plaque will only accept cholesterol from HDL-A1, which they then convert to cholesterol sulfate. They obtain the sulfate through yet another process which requires energy and oxidizing agents, extracting the sulfur from homocysteine. With insufficient homocysteine, the sulfur will most likely be extracted from cartilage, which gets its strength from extensive disulfide bonds. This, in my view, is the main cause of arthritis -- depletion of sulfur from the cartilage in the joints. So now you have both cardiovascular disease and arthritis as a consequence of a low-fat diet and aggressive sun avoidance.Statin drugs dramatically lower LDL levels by interfering with cholesterol synthesis, and this wreaks havoc on the liver, the main back-up supplier of cholesterol to the tissues when cholesterol intake and cholesterol sulfate production are down. With the American diet, the liver has another huge task, which is to convert fructose to fat. The fat cannot be stored or shipped (via LDL) if there is insufficient cholesterol. As a consequence, the liver abandons this task, and the fructose builds up in the blood, causing extensive glycation damage to blood proteins. One of the impacted proteins is the apoB in LDL, which interferes with LDL's ability to deliver its goods to the tissues, including cholesterol, fats, vitamins A, D, E, and K, and antioxidants. So LDL levels fall sharply with statins, and so does the bioavailability of all these nutrients. Muscle cells come to the rescue, heroically, by extracting excess fructose from the blood and converting it to lactate, using anaerobic metabolism. They have to switch over to anaerobic metabolism anyway, because coenzyme Q10, another casualty of statin therapy, is in low supply. Coenzyme Q10 is crucial for aerobic metabolism. Lactate is a great fuel for the heart and liver, but the problem is that the muscle cells get wrecked in the process, due to massive overdoses of fructose, in the context of inadequate cholesterol, which would have offered some protection. This is a principle contributor to the excessive muscle pain and weakness associated with statins. Eventually, the muscles can't do it any more, and you're now on the verge towards heart failure[U6] .--

People on long-term statin therapy start to notice that their hair is receding faster, they're developing cataracts, they can't hear as well as they used to, they keep forgetting things, they can't open the pickle jar any more, and perhaps they'll need rotator cuff surgery soon, as their shoulders are so sore. They think it's just because they're growing old, but these are all side effects that my research, together with my students at MIT, has uncovered, by comparing statin drug side effects with side effects associated with other drugs in age-matched reviews. Even more alarming are the rare but debilitating and even life-threatening side effects we've detected, such as ALS and Parkinson's disease, heart and liver failure, neuropathy and severe muscle damage. A 17-year study on the elderly confirmed what I already suspected: low serum cholesterol is associated with increased frailty, accelerated mental decline, and early death. (Ref 1.)---Statins are not the answer for anyone seeking to avoid cardiovascular disease. The answer, instead, is to modify the diet to include foods that are rich in cholesterol and saturated fat, to avoid empty carbohydrates, especially high fructose corn syrup, to eat foods that are good sources of sulfur, and, most especially, to spend plenty of time outdoors in the sun.

Research Points to Potential Therapy for Tumor-Associated Epilepsy


ScienceDaily (Sep. 12, 2011) — Glioma, one of the most deadly and common types of brain tumor, is often associated with seizures, but the origins of these seizures and effective treatments for them have been elusive. Now a team funded by the National Institutes of Health has found that human gliomas implanted in mice release excess levels of the brain chemical glutamate, overstimulating neurons near the tumor and triggering seizures.[U1] --The researchers also found that sulfasalazine, a drug on the market for treating certain inflammatory disorders, can reduce seizures in mice with glioma.---About 80 percent of people with glioma will experience at least one seizure during their illness, often as the first symptom. About one-third of patients will develop recurring seizures, known as tumor-associated epilepsy. Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., whose death was caused by a malignant glioma in August 2009, was diagnosed after having a seizure 15 months earlier.---"Seizures are a frequent symptom of glioma and are often poorly controlled by epilepsy medications," said Jane Fountain, Ph.D., a program director at NIH's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). "Understanding why the seizures occur and how to counteract them could help us substantially improve the quality of life for people with glioma." "People have assumed that tumors cause seizures by irritating the brain, but that really isn't a scientific explanation. We have now shown that the seizures are caused by glutamate release from the tumor," said Harald Sontheimer, Ph.D., a professor of neurobiology and director of the Center for Glial Biology in Medicine at the University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB). Dr. Sontheimer and his team published their results in Nature Medicine.---The research was supported by NINDS, including $934,698 in grants funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.---Glutamate serves as a chemical relay within the brain. Its release from one neuron can stimulate other neurons to fire electrical impulses. However, excess glutamate can cause abnormal electrical activity in the brain -- which is the basis for epileptic seizures. In particular, excess release of glutamate from non-neuronal cells called glia appears to play a role in some types of epilepsy. Because gliomas result from an overgrowth of glia, researchers had theorized that glutamate produced by the tumors might cause seizures, but no one had established a causal link.---Dr. Sontheimer's team tested the theory by studying mice whose brains were seeded with human glioma cells. They found that about one-third of the animals with gliomas developed abnormal brain activity and behavioral signs consistent with seizures. They also investigated whether or not the tumors affect brain activity in response to stimulation. When they delivered electrical pulses near a tumor, they saw a pattern of activity that spread outward from the tumor and was more prolonged and widespread than the responses to stimulation seen in normal brain tissue. Brain tissue containing the tumors also released higher levels of glutamate compared to normal brain tissue.---Next, the researchers sought to determine if the drug sulfasalazine could correct these abnormalities. Sulfasalazine is an anti-inflammatory sometimes prescribed for ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis. It also targets a protein complex called the system Xc(-) transporter. System Xc(-) acts like a -commodities broker within glioma cells, importing the essential amino acid cystine into the cells in exchange for exporting glutamate.[U2] --Dr. Sontheimer's team found that by inhibiting the system Xc(-) transporter, sulfasalazine can reduce glutamate release from gliomas. The drug also reduced seizure activity in the glioma-bearing mice, cutting the frequency of epileptic bursts nearly fivefold in the first hour after treatment. After four hours, the effects of the drug wore off unless it was re-administered. The likely reason is that most of the drug is broken down into a form that does not affect system Xc(-), according to Dr. Sontheimer. A clinical trial is planned at UAB to determine if sulfasalazine can reduce seizures in people with slow-growing gliomas. Meanwhile, Dr. Sontheimer's lab is working with medicinal chemists to develop a form of the drug that is more stable in the bloodstream and brain, and more active against system Xc(-).---"There is hope that in addition to reducing seizures, sulfasalazine might reduce the growth of glioma cells," Dr. Sontheimer said. The cystine molecules imported by system Xc(-) are used to manufacture vital proteins that help tumor cells grow stronger, he explained. In a 2005 study, he found that sulfasalazine delays glioma growth in mice.---Whether these promising results with sulfasalazine in animal studies will translate into improved outcome in patients with brain tumors remains to be tested. Indeed, caution was raised by a small trial of 10 patients with advanced stage gliomas treated with varying doses of sulfasalazine. No beneficial effects were established, and safety concerns arose about whether treatment worsened brain swelling near the tumor. That trial was terminated early.---"It is worth examining whether or not the drug can help patients with newly diagnosed, slow-growing gliomas as opposed to patients with advanced disease," Dr. Sontheimer said.---The lead author of the study, Susan Buckingham, Ph.D., and second author, Susan Campbell, Ph.D., received support from the NINDS Training Program in Brain Tumor Biology at UAB. Vedrana Montana, Ph.D., was hired as a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Glial Biology in Medicine through Recovery Act funds. The work was also supported by a center core grant from the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research.--

Chemists Help Astronauts Make Sure Their Drinking Water Is Clean


Nicole Stott, a flight engineer on Expedition 21 of the International Space Station, tests the quality of drinking water using chemistry and procedures developed by Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory researchers.---ScienceDaily (Sep. 15, 2011) — Bob Lipert held up a syringe, attached a plastic cartridge and demonstrated how chemistry developed at Iowa State University is helping astronauts and cosmonauts make sure they have safe drinking water at the International Space Station.---Each cartridge contains a thin, one-centimeter disk that's loaded with chemistry, said Lipert, an associate scientist with Iowa State's Institute for Physical Research and Technology and an associate of the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory. Run a 10-milliliter water sample through a disk and it will change color in the presence of iodine, which NASA uses to inhibit the growth of microorganisms in the drinking water stored at the space station. The disk will turn from white to yellow and, as it's exposed to higher concentrations of iodine, it will turn to orange and finally to a rust color.---A handheld device -- a diffuse reflectance spectrometer -- can read the disk's color changes and precisely measure the concentration of molecular iodine, or I2. The whole process is called colorimetric solid phase extraction.---Starting in late September, Lipert said astronauts at the space station will use new developments and procedures that convert all forms of iodine in the water samples to molecular iodine. That will give astronauts a more precise reading of total iodine in their drinking water. Lipert said they'll know in real time whether there's too much, too little or just enough iodine in the water.---Disks loaded with different chemistry can also measure and record concentrations of silver, which the Russian Federal Space Agency uses as a biocide in its water supply at the space station. As silver concentrations increase, disks turn from yellow to purple.

Before Iowa State chemists helped develop the new tests, the only way to test the space station's drinking water was to send samples back to earth.---"We figured out the chemistry and put it into a form that can be used in space," Lipert said. "We also took lab techniques and simplified them as much as possible. And we developed procedures that can be used in the absence of gravity."---The result is a quick, accurate test that doesn't use up much drinking water or much astronaut time.---"What's neat about what we came up with is that all the chemistry we need to do can be accomplished in about one minute per sample using a little, 1-centimeter cartridge," Lipert said.---It took some work to develop the test's chemistry and procedures. The NASA-sponsored project began more than a decade ago under the direction of Marc Porter, a former Iowa State professor of chemistry and chemical and biological engineering who is now a USTAR Professor at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Lipert has worked on the project since 2000.---Other Iowa State researchers who have worked on the project include Jim Fritz, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Liberal Arts and Sciences; former post-doctoral researchers Matteo Arena and Neil Dias; and former graduate students April Hill, Daniel Gazda, John Nordling, Lisa Ponton and Cherry Shih. Lorraine Siperko, a research scientist at the University of Utah, has also worked on the project.---The university researchers have also collaborated with the Wyle Integrated Science and Engineering Group, a NASA subcontractor that helped develop and certify the water-testing hardware that has been deployed on the space station.---After a series of successful space tests in 2009 and '10, the researchers' water-testing equipment is now certified operational hardware and is part of the space station's environmental monitoring toolbox.---Lipert said the testing technology can also be a useful tool in many earthbound applications, including forensics tests for drugs, environmental tests for heavy metals and water quality tests for pesticides or herbicides.---"This is a very flexible platform," he said. "You just have to work out the chemistry for each substance you're analyzing."Story Source:

When a Salad Is Not a Salad: Why Are Dieters Easily Misled by Food Names?


ScienceDaily (Apr. 29, 2011) — Dieters are so involved with trying to eat virtuously that they are more likely than non-dieters to choose unhealthy foods that are labeled as healthy, according to a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research. It seems dieter focus on food names can work to their disadvantage.---"Keeping your weight-loss goal in mind as you scan the lunch menu at a café, you are careful to avoid pasta selections and instead order from the list of salad options," write authors Caglar Irmak (University of South Carolina), Beth Vallen (Loyola University), and Stefanie Rosen Robinson (University of South Carolina). "But before you congratulate yourself for making a virtuous selection, you might want to consider whether your choice is a salad in name only."--These days, restaurant salads can include ingredients that dieters would be likely to avoid (meats, cheeses, breads, and pasta). Potato chips are labeled "veggie chips," milkshakes are called "smoothies," and sugary drinks are named "flavored water." Why are dieters, who are supposedly more attuned to healthy foods, likely to be confused by these labels?---"Over time, dieters learn to focus on simply avoiding foods that they recognize as forbidden based on product name," the authors explain. "Thus, dieters likely assume that an item assigned an unhealthy name (for example, pasta) is less healthy than an item assigned a healthy name (for example, salad), and they do not spend time considering other product information that might impact their product evaluations." Non-dieters do not learn to avoid foods based on names and, given that they are not focused on healthful eating, are more likely to dismiss cues that imply healthfulness, including name.---Participants in one study were presented with a mixture of vegetables, pasta, salami, and cheese, served on a bed of fresh romaine lettuce. The item was either identified as "salad" or "pasta." When it was called pasta, dieters perceived it as less healthy. In another study, participants were given samples of a product, which was labeled either "fruit chews" or "candy chews." "Dieters perceived the item with an unhealthy name (candy chews) to be less healthful and less tasty than non-dieters," the authors write. As a result, dieters consumed more of the confections when they were called "fruit chews."--Journal ReferenceCaglar Irmak, Beth Vallen, and Stefanie Rosen Robinson.

Recipe—How to purify Water with Iodine or Chorine or Colloidal Silver or Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide


Calculate how much iodine is needed to purify the water. Consider the source of the water and the amount of water. When using 2 percent liquid iodine, five drops from an eyedropper should be added for each quart if the water is clear and from a flowing source. If the water is cloudy or from a stagnant source, use 10 drops. If using tablets, use two tablets per quart.--Let the water sit for 30 minutes, longer if the water was less than 68 degrees Fahrenheit. As temperature drops below 68 degrees Fahrenheit, iodine purification becomes less effective. Water can be warmed by letting it sit in the sun. or heating it --Shake the water and iodine solution thoroughly.---Let solution stand an additional 30 minutes if the water used was especially cloudy, or if it came from a highly contaminated source. The Center for Disease Control states that iodine can be just as effective as chlorine if allowed to sit long enough.



Iodine Solution – One of the most common methods, Using a 2% solution use 5 drops per litre of water. Leave to stand for 15 minutes before drinking. If the water is very cold or cloudy then leave it for 30 minutes, or alternatively use double the amount of drops.




 Most household chlorine bleaches have 4-6 percent available chlorine in which case add 1/8 teaspoon (8 drops) of regular, unscented, liquid household bleach for each gallon of water (2 drops per litre or quart if in the USA), stir it well and let it stand for 30 minutes before you use it. Check the label; if the percentage of available chlorine is around 1 percent, or you don't know what the percentage is, use 40 drops per gallon/ 10 drops per litre; if the percentage is 7-10 percent, use 4 drops per gallon or 1 drop per litre. Double the amount of chlorine if the water is cloudy, murky, or colored, or if the water is extremely cold. If, after sitting covered for 30 minutes, the water doesn't have a slight chlorine odor, repeat the dosage and let sit for another 15 minutes.



Chlorine As A Purifier-

1)  Clear water is a sign of pure water. Always drain long-standing pipes for 30 seconds to one minute before drinking! (Cheap remote motels?)


2)  1 Gallon water is disinfected by 8-16 drops of regular household bleach (visually about 1/4 of a teaspoon) - double that for cloudy water. Shake and let stand 30 minutes. One teaspoon will disinfect 5 gallons. Immediately after treating, water must initially have a slight smell of chlorine. If it does not - repeat the process.


3)  Household bleach is relatively harmless. The smell or waft of chlorine is not bad: it indicates that water is treated and germ free. Once treated and disinfected, the chlorine smell will go away in a few days.


4)  Regularly used water from large tanks may be treated once or twice a month with 1 Oz. bleach per 200 gallons or 5 Oz. bleach per 1000 gallons. 


5)  Long-standing water in tanks will be disinfected w/ 1 pint household bleach per 1000 gallons. (2500 gal tanks are fine with 3 pints.) 


6)  Bleach effectively kills bacteria and viruses, stops smells and then breaks down. It's effective germ killing alkaline property is completely neutralized very quickly. It does not stay chemically active in tanks for more than a few days. Most germs require sunlight to grow. Store water in the dark.


7)If water is relatively clear: but has a noticeable smell of chlorine: it is drinkable, disinfected, and harmless. Humans need 2 quarts per day.



Colloidal Silver


Colloidal Silver is an excellent water purifier. Water stored with one or two tablespoons of Colloidal Silver per 5 litres will be safe and sweet tasting for a very long time.


Water containing germ contaminants (not toxic chemicals) can be made drinkable by adding 2 to 3 tablespoons of Colloidal Silver to every 5 litres of water.



Hydrogen Peroxide


Hydrogen Peroxide method. Food grade hydrogen peroxide is excellent for treating water. Use the same amounts as iodine ( that would be 4 drops to a quart ). Water treated with hydrogen peroxide will last several years longer than any other treatment method.

Recommend 1/8 of a cup of food grade per gallon ---Suggested dose at a 32%


How to Concentrate Peroxide

-store bought hydrogen peroxide is usually 3% H2O2, 97% H20

 -water freezes at 0 degrees

 -H2O2 freezes at -11 degrees


 so just stick it in your freezer and when your liquid is frozen just take it out and pour your high concentration H2O2 out. Please remember that at high purity s this can be very dangerous and reactive. Will get about a half an oz with this



21 Water Purification: Chemical Treatment: Hydrogen Peroxide--Hydrogen Peroxide can be used to purify water if nothing else is

 available. Studies have shown of 99 percent inactivation of

 poliovirus in 6 hr with 0.3 percent hydrogen peroxide and a 99%

 inactivation of rhinovirus with a 1.5% solution in 24 minutes.

 Hydrogen Peroxide is more effective against bacteria, though Fe+2 or

 Cu+2 needs to be present as a catalyst to get a reasonable

 concentration-time product.

Caffeine Lowers Risk of Skin Cancer: Coffee-Based Sunscreen Might Work Best


ScienceDaily (Aug. 15, 2011) — There might be a time when instead of just drinking that morning cup of coffee you lather it on your skin as a way of preventing harmful sun damage or skin cancer.---A new Rutgers study strengthens the theory that caffeine guards against certain skin cancers at the molecular level by inhibiting a protein enzyme in the skin, known as ATR. Scientists believe that based on what they have learned studying mice, caffeine applied directly to the skin might help prevent damaging UV light from causing skin cancer.---Prior research indicated that mice that were fed caffeinated water and exposed to lamps that generated UVB radiation that damaged the DNA in their skin cells were able to kill off a greater percentage of their badly damaged cells and reduce the risk of cells becoming cancerous.--"Although it is known that coffee drinking is associated with a decreased risk of non-melanoma skin cancer, there now needs to be studies to determine whether topical caffeine inhibits sunlight-induced skin cancer," said Allan Conney, director of the Susan Lehman Cullman Laboratory for Cancer Research.---In this newly-published study, instead of inhibiting ATR with caffeinated water, Rutgers researchers, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Washington, genetically modified and diminished ATR in one group of mice. The results: the genetically modified mice developed tumors more slowly than the unmodified mice, had 69 percent fewer tumors than regular mice and developed four times fewer invasive tumors. The study also found, however, that when both groups of mice were exposed to chronic ultraviolet rays for an extended period of time, tumor development occurred in both the genetically modified and regular mice. What this seems to indicate, says Conney, is that inhibiting the ATR enzyme works best at the pre-cancerous stage before UV-induced skin cancers are fully developed.---According to the National Cancer Institute, sunlight-induced skin cancer is the most prevalent cancer in the United States with more than 1 million new cases each year. Although multiple human epidemiologic studies link caffeinated beverage intake with significant decreases in several different types of cancer, including skin cancer, just how and why coffee protects against the disease is unknown. "Caffeine might become a weapon in prevention because it inhibits ATR and also acts ad as a sunscreen and directly absorbs damaging UV light," said Conney.

More Mammograms Equal More Mastectomies

But experts urge women to continue to get screened


 TUESDAY, Sept. 13 (HealthDay News) -- One of the goals of mammograms is detecting breast cancer early enough to avoid needing a mastectomy. But a new Norwegian study suggests that mastectomy rates climb higher as more women undergo the screening test.--Using national cancer data for more than 35,000 women aged 40 to 79 who were diagnosed with early or invasive breast cancers, Oslo researchers found a 31 percent increased risk of mastectomy in women invited to screening compared with a non-invited younger age group. The Norwegian breast cancer screening program began in 1996 in four counties, encompassing the country's remaining 15 counties by 2004.--While scientists did not investigate why mastectomy rates climbed in screened groups, study author Pal Suhrke said the main reason is likely "cancer overdiagnosis," or the detection and subsequent treatment of tumors that might grow very slowly and not pose much of a risk.--"Since the introduction of screening is associated with a more than 50 percent increase in breast cancer rates, some of these women are treated by mastectomy," said Suhrke, a doctoral candidate in the pathology department at Oslo University Hospital. "For many, these results are surprising and disappointing because one might suspect that due to earlier detection of tumors, the number of women needing mastectomies would decrease."--The study is published in the Sept. 13 online edition of BMJ.  Suhrke and his colleagues found that the country's annual mastectomy rate rose by 9 percent in women aged 50 to 69 -- the group invited to screening -- between the pre-screening period from 1993 to 1995 and the introduction of biennial screening from 1996 to 2004. In contrast, mastectomy rates fell by 17 percent in non-invited women aged 40 to 49 and 13 percent in non-invited women aged 70 to 79.---Dr. Stephanie Bernik, chief of surgical oncology at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, said the study raises some valid points, but "they haven't addressed all the issues," such as the idea that some breast cancer patients opt for more radical surgery because they don't want to worry about the potential for recurrence of even early-stage cancers.--The researchers also noted that some Norwegian women in the study didn't live near a radiation center, Bernik said, making mastectomy a safer option because follow-up radiation treatments were not otherwise accessible. Breast reconstruction techniques have also improved greatly in the past decade, she added.--"I think it's true, if you screen more you're going to find more cancers. That ultimately should lead to better survival for these patients," she said. "Mastectomy is not as dreadful a choice as it used to be."[U1]   Indeed, a recent study by the Mayo Clinic indicated that few breast cancer survivors who opt for a double mastectomy as a precautionary measure regretted their decision decades later. Twenty years after surgery, 92 percent said they would make the same decision, according to preliminary findings presented at the American Society of Breast Surgeons' annual meeting in April.----Bernik cautioned that the take-home message of the Norwegian study isn't that women shouldn't get screened. While mammograms do find some early-stage cancers that may never progress, and those women go on to be treated anyway -- "you can't pick and choose which ones are going to be a problem or not . . . and so there is going to be an element of overtreatment," she said.----"I think we should continue screening and work toward ways of potentially trying to figure out who needs more extensive surgery," Bernik added.

ScienceDaily (Sep. 12, 2011) — Exposure to the light of white LED bulbs, it turns out, suppresses melatonin 5 times more than exposure to the light of high pressure sodium bulbs that give off an orange-yellow light. "Just as there are regulations and standards for 'classic' pollutants, there should also be regulations and rules for the pollution stemming from artificial light at night," says Prof. Abraham Haim of the University of Haifa.

"White" light bulbs that emit light at shorter wavelengths are greater suppressors of the body's production of melatonin than bulbs emitting orange-yellow light, a new international study has revealed.

Melatonin is a compound that adjusts our biological clock and is known for its anti-oxidant and anti-cancerous properties.--The study investigated the influence of different types of bulbs on "light pollution" and the suppression of melatonin, with the researchers recommending several steps that should be taken to balance the need to save energy and protecting public health. --"Just as there are regulations and standards for 'classic' pollutants, there should also be regulations and rules for pollution stemming from artificial light at night," says Prof. Abraham Haim, head of the Center for Interdisciplinary Chronobiological Research at the University of Haifa and the Israeli partner in the research.---The study, by Fabio Falchi, Pierantonio Cinzano, Christopher D. Elvidge, David M. Keith and Abraham Haim, was recently published in the Journal of Environmental Management. --The fact that "white" artificial light (which is actually blue light on the spectrum, emitted at wavelengths of between 440-500 nanometers) suppresses the production of melatonin in the brain's pineal gland is already known. Also known is the fact that suppressing the production of melatonin, which is responsible, among other things, for the regulation of our biological clock, causes behavior disruptions and health problems.--In this study, conducted by astronomers, physicists and biologists from ISTIL- Light Pollution Science and Technology Institute in Italy, the National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, and the University of Haifa, researchers for the first time examined the differences in melatonin suppression in a various types of light bulbs, primarily those used for outdoor illumination, such as streetlights, road lighting, mall lighting and the like.--In the first, analytical part of the study, the researchers, relying on various data, calculated the wavelength and energy output of bulbs that are generally used for outdoor lighting. Next, they compared that information with existing research regarding melatonin suppression to determine the melatonin suppression level of each bulb type.--Taking into account the necessity for artificial lighting in cities, as well as the importance of energy-saving bulbs, the research team took as a reference point the level of melatonin suppression by a high-pressure sodium (HPS) bulb, a bulb that gives off orange-yellow light and is often used for street and road lighting, and compared the data from the other bulbs to that one.--From this comparison it emerged that the metal halide bulb, which gives off a white light and is used for stadium lighting, among other uses, suppresses melatonin at a rate more than 3 times greater than the HPS bulb, while the light-emitting diode (LED) bulb, which also gives off a white light, suppresses melatonin at a rate more than 5 times higher than the HPS bulb.

"The current migration from the now widely used sodium lamps to white lamps will increase melatonin suppression in humans and animals," the researchers say.

The researchers make some concrete suggestions that could alter the situation without throwing our world into total darkness, but first and foremost, they assert that it is necessary to understand that artificial light creates "light pollution" that ought to be addressed in the realms of regulation and legislation.--Their first suggestion of course, is to limit the use of "white" light to those instances where it is absolutely necessary. Another suggestion is to adjust lampposts so that their light is not directed beyond the horizon, which would significantly reduce light pollution. They also advise against "over-lighting," using only the amount of light needed for a task, and, of course, to simply turn off lighting when not in use -- "Just like we all turn off the light when we leave the room. This is the first and primary way to save energy," the researchers say.--"Most Italian regions have legislations to lower the impact of light pollution, but they still lack a regulation on the spectrum emitted by lamps. Unless legislation is updated soon, with the current trend toward sources as white LEDs, which emit a huge amount of blue light, we will enter a period of elevated negative effects of light at night on human health and environment. Lamp manufacturers cannot claim that they don't know about the consequences of artificial light at night," says Dr. Fabio Falchi of ISTIL.---"As a first step in Israel, for example, the Standards Institution of Israel should obligate bulb importers to state clearly on their packaging what wavelengths are produced by each bulb. If wavelength indeed influences melatonin production, this is information that needs to be brought to the public's attention, so consumers can decide whether to buy this lighting or not," Prof. Haim says. --Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by University of Haifa.

Pituitary Hormone TSH Found to Directly Influence Bone Growth


ScienceDaily (Sep. 13, 2011) — Researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine have found that thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), a hormone produced in the anterior pituitary gland that regulates endocrine function in the thyroid gland, can promote bone growth independent of its usual thyroid functions. The research suggests that TSH, or drugs that mimic its affect on bone, may be key to possible future treatments for osteoporosis and other conditions involving bone loss, such as cancer. The findings were published online this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.---The same Mount Sinai researchers had previously published research showing that TSH inhibits the creation of osteoclasts, a type of cell that removes bone tissue from the body. With this new study, however, the researchers have established for the first time that TSH also activates osteoblasts, which are cells responsible for bone formation.--"There are relatively few treatments right now for osteoporosis, and virtually all of them focus on limiting osteoclasts -- that is, fighting the loss of existing bone," said Terry F. Davies, MD, FRCP, FACE, Florence and Theodore Baumritter Professor of Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine. "However, our study shows that future progress in osteoporosis therapies may hinge on medications that can mimic the effects of TSH and promote the growth of new bone. The key will be to develop TSH analogs that would activate osteoblasts and yet not affect the thyroid gland the way TSH itself does."--"Osteoporosis is really an imbalance in the functions that create and destroy bone in the body," said Mone Zaidi, MD, PhD, FRCP, FACE, Hon MD, Professor of Medicine, and Director of the Mount Sinai Bone Program, Mount Sinai School of Medicine. "Our findings indicate that there may be a novel new method for addressing the lack of bone production. Our discovery that TSH causes bone growth also represents a new way of thinking about the role of certain glands and how they operate."-About 60 million people in the United States have symptoms of osteoporosis, and often they are unaware of the condition until they experience a broken bone or shrinkage of their skeleton. The disease affects women more often than men, and risk factors include aging; low body weight; low levels of the sex hormone estrogen; smoking; and some medications.  Dr. Zaidi is a named inventor of a pending patent application related to the use of TSH in the inhibition of TNF activity. This patent has been filed by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. In the event the patent is licensed, Dr. Zaidi would be entitled to a share of a any proceeds Mount Sinai School of Medicine receives from the license.

Rise of Antibiotic-Resistant Gonorrhea Needs Urgent Action

ScienceDaily (Sep. 19, 2011) — Gonorrhea is evolving into a scourge resistant to most antibiotics, and urgent action is needed to combat this public health threat, states an editorial in CMAJ.--Gonorrhea, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that causes pelvic inflammatory disease and urethritis, is evolving into multiresistant bacteria because most treatments are now ineffective. Japan reported the first example of multiresistant gonorrhea. Neisseria gonorrhea, the organism responsible, can mutate rapidly and has a complex biology that has foiled attempts to develop a vaccine[U1] . It can also promote antibiotic resistance in other microbes through gene transfer[U2] .--Targeted approaches aimed at high-risk groups, such as sexually active young people, can help stop the spread of gonorrhea. Creative and humorous public education campaigns, such as Alberta's campaign against STDs, which resulted in a 15% to 20% increase in testing in its first month, are a start. Access to testing and care must be made easier, and emphasis on safe sex and condom use is crucial.[U3]  "The spectre of widespread multiresistant gonorrhea demands an urgent public health, community and individual response," conclude the authors. "Without action, we are heading back to the pre-antibiotic era, with an escalation in the number of deaths from other multiresistant organisms as well as rampant gonococcal infections -- with treatment options for urethritis limited to painkillers, baths and catheterization for strictures.

Copper Reduces Infection Risk by More Than 40 Per Cent, Experts Say


ScienceDaily (Sep. 15, 2011) — Professor Bill Keevil, Head of the Microbiology Group and Director of the Environmental Healthcare Unit at the University of Southampton, has presented research into the mechanism by which copper exerts its antimicrobial effect on antibiotic-resistant organisms at the World Health Organization's first International Conference on Prevention and Infection Control (ICPIC).--

'New Insights into the Antimicrobial Mechanisms of Copper Touch Surfaces' observes the survival of pathogens on conventional hospital touch surfaces contributes to increasing incidence and spread of antibiotic resistance and infections. Keevil proposes antimicrobial copper surfaces as one way to address this, since they achieve a rapid kill of significant bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens.---He reported studies on dry surfaces with a range of pathogens, concluding that: "Copper's rapid destruction of pathogens could prevent mutational resistance developing and also help reduce the spread of antibiotic resistance genes to receptive and potentially more virulent organisms, as well as genes responsible for virulence. Additionally, copper touch surfaces could have a key role in preventing the transmission of healthcare-associated infections. Extensive laboratory tests have demonstrated copper's antimicrobial efficacy against key organisms responsible for these infections, and clinical trials around the world are now reporting on its efficacy in busy, real-world environments."The latest trial -- conducted in intensive care units at three facilities in the United States -- has shown that the use of antimicrobial copper surfaces in intensive care unit rooms resulted in a 40.4% reduction in the risk of acquiring a hospital infection.--

The study, funded by the US Department of Defense, was designed to determine the efficacy of antimicrobial copper in reducing the level of pathogens in hospital rooms, and whether such a reduction would translate into a lower rate of infection.---Researchers at the three hospitals involved in the trial -- Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center, both in Charleston, South Carolina -- replaced commonly-touched items such as bed rails, overbed tray tables, nurse call buttons and IV poles with antimicrobial copper versions.--Data presented today by trial leader Dr Michael Schmidt, Professor and Vice Chairman of Microbiology and Immunology at MUSC, at ICPIC, demonstrated a 97% reduction in surface pathogens in rooms with copper surfaces, the same level achieved by "terminal" cleaning: the regimen conducted after each patient vacates a room.--Dr Schmidt said of the results: "Bacteria present on ICU room surfaces are probably responsible for 35-80% of patient infections, demonstrating how critical it is to keep hospitals clean. The copper objects used in the clinical trial supplemented cleaning protocols, lowered microbial levels, and resulted in a statistically significant reduction in the number of infections contracted by patients treated in those rooms."Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by University of Southampton, via AlphaGalileo.




Low-Fat Yogurt Intake When Pregnant Linked to Increased Risk of Child Asthma and Hay Fever


ScienceDaily (Sep. 18, 2011) — Eating low-fat yogurt whilst pregnant can increase the risk of your child developing asthma and allergic rhinitis (hay fever), according to recent findings.--The study will be presented at the European Respiratory Society's (ERS) Annual Congress in Amsterdam on Sept. 25, 2011.--The study aimed to assess whether fatty acids found in dairy products could protect against the development of allergic diseases in children.--The researchers assessed milk and dairy intake during pregnancy and monitored the prevalence of asthma and allergic rhinitis using registries and questionnaires in the Danish National Birth Cohort.--The results showed that milk intake during pregnancy was not associated with increased risk of developing asthma and it actually protected against asthma development[U5] . However, women who ate low-fat yogurt with fruit once a day were 1.6-times more likely to have children who developed asthma by age 7, compared with children of women who reported no intake. They were also more likely to have allergic rhinitis and to display current asthma symptoms.---The researchers suggest that non-fat related nutrient components in the yogurt may play a part in increasing this risk. They are also looking at the possibility that low-fat yogurt intake may serve as a marker for other dietary and lifestyle factors.---Ekaterina Maslova, lead author from the Harvard School of Public Health, who has been working with data at the Centre for Fetal Programming at Statens Serum Institut, said: "This is the first study of its kind to link low-fat yogurt intake during pregnancy with an increased risk of asthma and hay fever in children. This could be due to a number of reasons and we will further investigate whether this is linked to certain nutrients or whether people who ate yogurt regularly had similar lifestyle and dietary patterns which could explain the increased risk of asthma."

Resisting Ill health through Regulation


"This is a serious crisis. I need your help - and, I guess you will need mine, too. Below is the info, the proof is attached, and in this message I am making an announcement and a request. Please read this carefully - this is important to your health." Helke

The CPSO (College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario) controls the licenses of some 40,000 doctors in Ontario. Because the majority of all practicing Canadian doctors are in Ontario, whatever policy this college adopts becomes basically the norm throughout Canada. Sometimes, the Maritime provinces take a different course, as they most recently did on the recognition and treatment of  Lyme Disease. They also recognized MCS, at least in part, long before the rest of Canada did. Internationally, as you will see from a quick Google trip, the CPSO is respected for setting standards. The fact that under the law (Regulated Health Professions Act and Medicine Act) they are not mandated to any such thing is beside the point in this age of spin controlled by Big Pharma and corrupted medical research. Under the law, the CPSO mandated to "maintain" the evolving standards of medical care, which is fundamentally different! They act, however, as if they are in charge - and that has hurt and even killed a lot of people[U6] .  Stopping the CPSO in its delusional behavior is an act of self-determination and good for your, my, and the public's health.--In 1997, the CPSO initiated the so-called CAM Policy (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) because the public uproar and mainstream media coverage of the then running Krop case had become intolerable to their image and power. The provincial government also leaned on the CPSO on this circus of a trial[U7] .  You will recall, those of you who are familiar with the case of Dr. Jozef Krop, that he was accused of diagnosing and treating MCS. In those charges, the main issues were that he told people not to use fragrances, protect themselves from toxic fumes from cleaners, cars, clothes etc. etc. and not use lawn pesticides etc. The final decision by the College in his case was a reprimand in which he was ordered to tell his patients, in a written consent form format, that all his diagnoses and treatments are only based on "his beliefs and have no scientific validity." The fact that during his trial his expert witnesses proving the science of environmental medicine were all university professors teaching the world over, was of course ignored. Significantly also, the prosecuting CPSO did not introduce even one (!!!) published article, research item etc., to supprt their condemnation. ONLY their opinion ruled - and their opinion all the way to 2002 was that environmental medicine was a hoax.--Meanwhile, we have laws protecting us from lawn pesticides, and last week we saw a special poster in the bathrooms - - - in the CPSO building! - - - showing a canary bird wearing a gas mask; the text informed the reader that perfumes cause severe health problems and can trigger asthma; the poster requested that no fragrance be used at all, please. Now, I should add (and this will make your blood boil or make you swoon, depending on the status of your cardiovascular system or your central nervous system) that the CPSO prosecuted a doctor from Windsor (Dr. S. Kooner) for treating asthma in ways that included protection from fragrance. That case lasted a decade and ended in a restriction to his license - still in force! - which denied him the right to treat any asthma cases at all.[U8]  More than 50 GPs who used to send him their asthma cases specifically protested in writing because they now had nobody to send their environmentally- triggered asthma cases to, almost all children. The CPSO declared (I was there to hear it!) that "patient outcome is irrelevant" and restricted his license. Yes, You may want to read this line again!The CAM Policy was idiotic because prejudiced against existing science and law in 1997,  it was possible to manage somehow if one wished to treat people without harming them with Big Pharma products. In 2010 the CPSO commenced its "review" of that policy and came up with a new draft which they may vote on this coming November at that month's council meeting. This new draft policy is beyond idiotic - it is outright criminal and fraudulent. It takes one's breath away. It is also accompanied by their having persuaded the Ontario government to remove ALL those sections from the current law that protect innovative medicine and the doctor-patient relationship. Read all about it in my submissions attached here. We are back in the Dark Ages - in fact, we are now hostages to Big Pharma and doctors may as well just use a prescription pad, forget everything else - and especially even the mainstream journals which are now squarely supportive of innovation! A huge consultation charade was commenced last summer - so the CPSO would look like truly democratic regulators who "listen" to the public, seeing their mandfate under the law is to "serve the public interest". I cannot remember when the CPSO ever (!) did that! What this consultaion process really did do is amazing and diabolically clever: the CPSO invited everybody who knows NOTHING about complementary medicine, does not practice it, or is openly hostile to it - to comment on their policy. (Go to their website and check out the policy section). To look good, I presume, they also asked some who are not likely to agree with them - such as me, of all people who has been writing about their unlawful and callous behavior for about 16 years now. They must have been surprised that it was mostly doctors who freaked right out at this proposed policy. In short: they conducted this review exactly the way they do their kangaroo trials of those doctors who run counter to their Big Pharma friends. The evidence be damned - spin reigns supreme.-To my astonishment, they invited me to comment on the new draft policy - and I did in the first round (see second attachment). That first round was not quite as criminal as this second round. Of course, as fully expected, the CPSOP did not take anything I said into account, even though whatever I said was supported not only by mainstream published literature but also by the medical groups who actually practice CAM, and by the many patient support groups. Then came the second round this year, for which by tomorrow the deadline arrives. That second round is where the criminality becomes evident: violations of chapters 2, 7 and 12 of the Charter (i.e. freedom of association, right to life and security of the person, and right to equality before the law). No policy or law in Canada may be in contravention of the Charter - that is the highest law in the land and, therefore, this policy is vulnerable to attack - and attack we all will!


It is fraudulent because many of the key scientific and legal citations from the mainstream literature in those submissions made by patient groups as well as (!) by professional medical groups were EDITED OUT before they were placed on the CPSO website, as guaranteed when this review process started. They edited out mainstream journal articles, references to official documents written or commissioned by the Ontario government, references to organizations the CPSO evidently does not like, entire sentences, and those legal items that prove the CPSO is out of control and transgressing their jurisdiction.


I have attached my two submission of 2010 and 2011, which were requested by the CPSO. The 2010 first submission is here the way I actually submitted it. It was submitted in PDF format, but the CPSO evidently thinks nothing of hacking into a PFD file and taking out what they don't like. I suspected this, and so I intentionally wrote my submission in such a way that no matter what they chose to edited out, there was damning evidence galore to make them unhappy. Even a censored version would be bad news for them. And it was and still is! The second time round, this year, they edited out nothing, which very much surprises me. Could there be at least one person of integrity and clear thinking at the CPSO who did not want to change anything in my submission? They even kept my name in it! In 2010 they took it out.




I have had it. This is the line in the sand. The OMA Section on Complementary Medicine is now considering legal action if this policy is adopted by the CPSO. Legal advice has already been sought and we KNOW what can be done - i.e. lots of damage which is decades overdue.---To assist this process of a coming battle, I am writing a book on the CPSO with a lot of juicy details which might be out by the November EXPO - if not, by the Total Health Show in March for sure! Few people have been as focused on the CPSO as I have been because of the circa 100+ doctors with whose cases I was involved and whom they prosecuted, often ruined, and in every case traumatized; I have also been involved with many hundreds of their patients to help them find doctors elsewhere, often outside of Canada; most of the most vulnerable ones had their lives wrecked. I also have the benefit of "moles" from the CPSO with plenty of inside information which now is going public.



An Apple or Pear a Day May Keep Strokes Away


ScienceDaily (Sep. 16, 2011) — Apples and pears may keep strokes away.

That's the conclusion of a Dutch study published in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association in which researchers found that eating a lot of fruits and vegetables with white flesh may protect against stroke.

While previous studies have linked high consumption of fruits and vegetables with lower stroke risk, the researchers' prospective work is the first to examine associations of fruits and vegetable color groups with stroke.--The color of the edible portion of fruits and vegetables reflects the presence of beneficial phytochemicals such as carotenoids and flavonoids.

Researchers examined the link between fruits and vegetable color group consumption with 10-year stroke incidence in a population-based study of 20,069 adults, with an average age of 41. The participants were free of cardiovascular diseases at the start of the study and completed a 178-item food frequency questionnaire for the previous year.


Fruits and vegetables were classified in four color groups:

Green, including dark leafy vegetables, cabbages and lettuces

Orange/Yellow, which were mostly citrus fruits

Red/Purple, which were mostly red vegetables

White, of which 55 percent were apples and pears


During 10 years of follow-up, 233 strokes were documented. Green, orange/yellow and red/purple fruits and vegetables weren't related to stroke. However, the risk of stroke incidence was 52 percent lower for people with a high intake of white fruits and vegetables compared to people with a low intake.---Each 25 gram per day increase in white fruits and vegetable consumption was associated with a 9 percent lower risk of stroke. An average apple is 120 grams.--"To prevent stroke, it may be useful to consume considerable amounts of white fruits and vegetables," said Linda M. Oude Griep, M.Sc., lead author of the study and a postdoctoral fellow in human nutrition at Wageningen Uninversity in the Netherlands. "For example, eating one apple a day is an easy way to increase white fruits and vegetable intake.---"However, other fruits and vegetable color groups may protect against other chronic diseases. Therefore, it remains of importance to consume a lot of fruits and vegetables."Apples and pears are high in dietary fiber and a flavonoid called quercetin. In the study, other foods in the white category were bananas, cauliflower, chicory and cucumber.

Potatoes were classified as a starch.--Previous research on the preventive health benefits of fruits and vegetables focused on the food's unique nutritional value and characteristics, such as the edible part of the plant, color, botanical family and its ability to provide antioxidants.


U.S. federal dietary guidelines include using color to assign nutritional value. The U.S. Preventive Health Services Taskforce recommends selecting each day vegetables from five subgroups: dark green, red/orange, legume, starchy and other vegetables.--Before the results are adopted into everyday practice, the findings should be confirmed through additional research, Oude Griep said. "It may be too early for physicians to advise patients to change their dietary habits based on these initial findings," she said.--An accompanying editorial notes that the finding should be interpreted with cauti---on because food frequency questionnaires may not be reliable.--In addition, "the observed reduction in stroke risk might further be due to a generally healthier lifestyle of individuals consuming a diet rich in fruits and vegetables," writes Heike Wersching, M.D., M.Sc., of Institute of Epidemiology and Social Medicine at the University of Münster, in Germany.--Study co-authors are: W.M.
