People need to READ THE LABELS!  The FDA and the rest of the government agencies who you think are there to protect you and your family are just corrupted wings of the mass marketing and food & beverage industry.  Do NOT believe anything they tell you.  Find independent resources like the smart phone app: FOODUCATE and scan bar codes and read the labels!  This crap is addictive and will kill you and your family!

Researchers say AI prescribes better treatment than doctors

Researchers say AI prescribes better treatment than doctors | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it

Two Indiana University researchers have developed a computer model they say can identify significantly better and less-expensive treatments than can doctors acting alone. It’s just the latest evidence that big data will have a profound impact on our health care system.

 

How much better? They claim a better than 50 percent reduction in costs and more than 40 percent better patient outcomes.

 

The idea behind the research, carried out by Casey Bennett and Kris Hauser, is simple and gets to the core of why so many people care so much about data in the first place: If doctors can consider what’s actually happening and likely to happen instead of relying on intuition, they should be able to make better decisions.

 

In order to prove out their hypothesis, the researchers worked with “clinical data, demographics and other information on over 6,700 patients who had major clinical depression diagnoses, of which about 65 to 70 percent had co-occurring chronic physical disorders like diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.” They built a model using Markov decision processes — which predict the probabilities of future events based on those immediately preceding them — and dynamic decision networks — which extend the Markov processes by considering the specific features of those events in order to determine the probabilities. Essentially, their model considers the specifics of a patient’s current state and then determines the best action to effect the best possible outcome.

 

Specifically, Bennett and Hauser found via a simulation of 500 random cases that their model decreased the cost per unit of outcome change to $189 from the $497 without it, an improvement of 58.5 percent. They found their original model improved patient outcomes by nearly 35 percent, but that tweaking a few parameters could bring that number to 41.9 percent.

 

IBM has been banging this drum loudly, most recently with two new commercial versions of its Watson system — one of which is designed to determine the best-possible course of treatment for lung cancer patient by analyzing their situations against a library of millions of pages of clinical evidence and medical research.

 

So, although we won’t hear “Paging Dr. Watson” at the hospital anytime soon, there’s an increasingly high chance our doctors will retire to their offices with our charts and ask a computer system of some sort what might be wrong with us and how they might best fix it.

 


Via Dr. Stefan Gruenwald
Skip Stein's insight:

This is compounded by the fact that most of the illnesses in the study are direct results from poor/lousy nutrition.  Since doctors get little or no training in nutrition during all those years in medical school, the obvious solutions, the most natural and inexpensive ones are not even mentioned.  Plant based nutrition can help reduce the impact of many illnesses and in many cases totally reverse/cure the 'disease'.  Things like heart disease, diabetes 2, many cancers and a host of other ailments from depression, hypertension, high cholesterol and a plethora of others.

EU steps up for bees & U.S. backtracks | Pesticide Action Network

EU steps up for bees & U.S. backtracks | Pesticide Action Network | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
Last week, the European Commission announced its position against the use of bee-harming neonicotinoid insecticides, urging nations within the European Union (EU) to impose a two-year suspension on their use.

 

But here in the U.S., policymakers aren't stepping up. EPA officials are continuing to ignore the emerging body of science that point to pesticides, and especially neonicotinoid insecticides, as a critical factor in bee declines. What's worse, the agency is poised to approve yet another bee-harming pesticide."

Skip Stein's insight:

We are destroying our ability to grow healthy crops.  Too many pesticides, GMO crops that encourage 'super weeds' and more from the corrupt and graft ridden FDA and other government agencies infiltrated by special interests who only want to make money from short term objectives.  None of these company's give a rats ass about the long term impact except that if they continue they will CONTROL the food supplies of the Planet.  In pursuing this deranged objective, they are destroying our ability to grow natural healthy food!

Hidden, deadly viral gene found in commercial GMO crops

Hidden, deadly viral gene found in commercial GMO crops | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
Hidden, deadly viral gene found in commercial GMO crops

 

....The presence of Gene VI basically leaves transgenic crops defenseless against both pathogenic and viral invaders, and is believed to cause aberrant gene expression in crops that possess it. This means the entire genetic sequence of a plant can mutate as a consequence of Gene VI, resulting in random protein production within plant cells, indiscriminate gene expression throughout the organism, and even growth deformities."

Skip Stein's insight:

The potential for cross contamination from GMO crops has devastated neighboring farms and Monsanto and the owners of the patented genes have sued; even though the neighboring farm were cross-pollinated by the WIND and Bees.  Now we see that this can also lead to rampant 'monster crops' as genetic mutations may cause unexpected and unanticipated results that could devastate the USA and other agriculture!  These are UNTESTED on humans and the environment and we may have already opened the agricultural Pandora ’s Box!

 

The problem is that these companies just do NOT KNOW what may happen and the potential dangers may be disastrous (what has happened to the bees?).

 

Most surveys agree that if the public KNEW which products contained GMO ingredients they would NOT purchase them. Just like happened in Europe; which resulted in Wal-Mart and others totally abandoning GMO laced products there!

 

Why not label in the USA?  Because 80% or more of the products you eat contain GMO and if labeled it would devastate the packaged food industry.  They spend untold million$ to lobby Congress (yea more graft and corruption) to avoid any labeling legislation (Federal, State or Local).

Many of us 'Tweet' information and other commentaries.  Just be aware that EVERYTHING you transmit over the Internet is subject to recording and monitoring by the USA Government.  While this is disturbing on many levels, it is also a useful tool to use!  Yes, it works both ways.  One way is to overload the spy software with innocuous trivia (like much of Twitter, Facebook and others).  Be aware of ‘keywords’ that may tip off a government spybots!  See this list: http://www.fortytwotimes.com/3626/heres-the-ultimate-list-of-keywords-to-use-to-let-the-government-know-its-cool-to-spy-on-you/

I have never been a fan of the questionable citizenship of Obama, just don't like his politics and ignoring of OUR Constitution, but damn, this just is not going away is it?  What are they hiding that there was no 'full disclosure' so long ago when this first surfaced?  THAT is what keeps bugging me.  I've always believed Obama to be a puppet for George Soros and others who simply want to CONTROL everything and be 'gods' and figured if they wanted a buffoon to be president, they would at least pick some poor smuck who had proper credentials.... this makes you wonder......

Since the Supreme Court usualy does not discuss 'non issues' there must be some substance to this. Tuesday will be interesting!

Study Supports Eating Wheat, Despite the Gluten-Free Trend

Study Supports Eating Wheat, Despite the Gluten-Free Trend | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
A recent study supports eating ancient grains as opposed to modern genetically modified versions to improve overall health, such as KAMUT brand khorasan wheat, an organic heritage crop.
Skip Stein's insight:

It drives me crazy when people blindly follow a 'trend' in anything.  The 'Gluten Free' idiocy is one of those examples.  Gluten, for those who are not sensitive, is an excellent way to obtain healthy plant based nutrition/protein.  There are a host of 'wheat meats' available to vegans to substitute for 'carnivorous meats'.

 

Too many people believe the commercials!  Gluten Free products generally taste like crap and are very expensive; it’s all hype!  Recent studies are showing that the increase in ‘gluten intolerance’ may well be due to the GMO wheat on the market and in many/most packaged foods!  AVOID them, eat organic whenever possible.  When in doubt, download and USE the smart phone app: FOODUCATE (http://www.fooducate.com/) it will warn you of GMO and other nasty content in packaged foods!
