Guinea Pigs R US - A Study of Electro Magnetic Radiation and its Effects

Guinea Pigs R US - A Study of Electro Magnetic Radiation and its Effects | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

The importance of being informed regarding chronic, prolonged EMF/EMR (electromagnetic radiation/electromagnetic fields) exposures, particularly nighttime exposures, can not be over-emphasized.

 

Sleeping with an electric clock on a nightstand or the headboard of one's bed, or sleeping close to the powerwall (inside wall opposite electric or gas meter),  can significantly lower immune function, which may predispose persons to every health problem from poor sleep to cancer. 

 

Electric currents and pulsating magnetic fields are known to disrupt cell signaling which may be linked to autism, Alzheimers and other neurodegenerative disorders...

People's response to electromagnetic radiation is extremely hard to   quantify because of the bevildering array of environmental and genetic variables - also because all living systems on earth grow up with and require a certain level of electromagnetic radiation.

CDC, USDA and FDA Scientist Study: Livestock antibiotics hurt human treatments

CDC, USDA and FDA Scientist Study: Livestock antibiotics hurt human treatments | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

19 September 2013, Politico -- "A new study provides the clearest evidence to date that the heavy use of antibiotics in livestock is undermining the use of antibiotics to treat sick humans, based on the way government scientists are touting their report.

 

DC officials don’t typically make declarative or bold political statements about the meaning of their research. However, Robert Tauxe, deputy director of CDC’s foodborne, waterborne and environmental disease division, said the study, recently completed by a team of 12 researchers from the CDC, Agriculture Department, the Food and Drug Administration, the Ontario Veterinary College and a public health consultant from Atlanta, “shows how the resistance to an important antibiotic can flow from the agricultural sector through food and it’s not theoretical at all.”

THE STORY:  "BOTTLED LIFE":

To be able to sell and make money from water, you first have to own it. While the world's population continues to grow at an alarming rate, water is becoming an increasingly scarce commodity. The Swiss film "Bottled Life" documents the booming business with bottled water, by focusing on the global leader in this lucrative multi-billion dollar market – namely, the Nestlé corporation in Switzerland. Nestlé currently controls more than 70% of the world's bottled water brands, a company intent on amassing resource rights worldwide, with the aim of dominating the global water market of the future.... http://www.bottledlifefilm.com/index.php/the-story.html

 Here is the hope that they can make a user friendly tool~Interested to see if some urban myths perpetuated by grain fed Tilapia and tested bad fats in studies to be unhealthy compared to other species grown on a natural diet.Some omnivores(vegetarian small insects) like Silver /Jade Perch have the worlds highest Omega3 healthy oil.Because of the ease of growing a rubbish fish that survives in crowded poor quality water conditions some Aquaponics growers persist in ignoring/ questioning the" Study" denial of inconvenient facts.They would sell it as "healthy fish" even if it were grown in a sewage drain as some Chinese product might as well be, it is fed faeces(shit) from farm animals.A Southeast Asian practice not to blame just China ,polyculture poultry pens above ponds pigs etc is wide spread as are health problems.The race to the bottom is not the way...Value for money IS  quality assured. A fresh clean green product involves rethinking the best produce you can grow, like heritage tomatoes that taste nice.Excess can be dried stored in olive oil or air tight containers.

Study: Calorie-Counting Apps Rev Up Weight Loss

Study: Calorie-Counting Apps Rev Up Weight Loss | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Tracking your daily progress on a fitness or food app — in addition to eating superfoods, exercising regularly and maintaining healthy sleep schedule — could take your weight loss to a whole new level.

The weight-loss study led by Bonnie Spring, Ph.D., a professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, was recently published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

The study's investigators tracked 69 overweight and obese adults (according to body mass index) on their weight-loss journey for nearly a year. Patients enrolled in a standard physician-directed program were randomly split into two groups. The control group attended health education sessions, but went without the use of personal digital assistants to monitor diets and physical activity on a daily basis..
