The war in Mali: an ‘Afghanistan’ nobody can afford

The war in Mali: an ‘Afghanistan’ nobody can afford | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it
Nobody could have probably better expressed the declared intent by the West to meet the ongoing challenges in the Sahel and Sahara regions than UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
Skip Stein's insight:

You know, I am pretty sick of the USA and other countries messing around in other country's affairs.  Return to a 'Cold War' strategy of providing resources to those who want to combat injustice, tyrants and dictators by their own hand makes more sense than invading other countries.  It is like anything else, GIVE someone anything that they have not earned and it is valueless; let them fight for their rights and then and only then, it will MEAN Something and have a potential to persist!

Vitamin D treatment for deadliest form of breast cancer
Skip Stein's insight:

Most Americans, especially kids, just don't get out in the sun to generate minimum amounts of vitamin D.  Too much 'sun screen' prevents the healthy rays of the sun in casual exposure.  Supplementing with a vitamin D pill is the only other way to get this vital immune system booster.  Doubt it?  Ask for a vitamin D test the next time you get blood work.  Your doctor will seldom do so; so ASK for it.  Not expensive to add to the normal CBC!

The current Status of Raintree Nutrition, Inc | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it

In the last 5 years the FDA has gotten progressively worse in prohibiting free speech and suppressing factual and non-misleading information about natural products and herbal supplements. Basically now, if you sell a supplement, you can't say anything about it, can't say what to take it for, how to use it, or refer to (or link to) any third party document or published research.

Skip Stein's insight:

The Federal Government (FDA) and other have successfully shut down another Health & Wellness company.  They continue to attack any non-pharmaceutical means to holistically treat disease or increase one's health NATURALLY.  In league with the Pharmaceutical and and other 'health' organizations the Federal Government continues to persecute these and other companies into non-existence.  This CONTROL over your day to day decisions increases daily until we will all be total SLAVES to the Central Obama Regime.

the Citadel : A Community of Liberty

the Citadel : A Community of Liberty | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it

THE CITADEL The Citadel is a developing community of Patriots in the mountains of Idaho who believe in Jefferson's Rightful Liberty and have chosen to live amongst one another, who have sworn their Lives, their Fortunes and their Sacred Honor to defend one another and Liberty.

Skip Stein's insight:

As more and more Americans realize that our Liberty and FREEDOM is being compromised daily by an overbearing and mostly un-Constitutional governing by the Obama Regime, they are taking action.  From armed camps to cession movements Americans are waking up (finally!) to the oppressive Government in Washington.

 

States are likewise writing laws to prohibit enforcement of Un-Constitutional edicts from Washington by the Obama Regime as Congress has totally abdicated their responsibility!

Skip Stein's insight:

Now that Obama's Regime has successfully beaten down the opposition, productive business growers will pay ON HALF or MORE of everything they earn to a confiscatory tax system.  EVERY American is paying MORE will truly continue to suffer under this oppressive administration.

They totally disregard the CONSTITUTION and the laws of the land.  Obama bypasses the Congress with Executive Orders that congress bends over and let's him get away with it.  Where are the Representatives of the PEOPLE?  Greedy, graft ridden and easily intimidated imbeciles know that this is WRONG, but yield to the 'political pressure' instead of doing the responsible thing and CUT SPENDING OF MONEY WE DO NOT HAVE.  The Gun issue is a distraction to the true subversive activities going on.

The Liberals are Masters of distraction and find things to distract Americans (weak minded ones anyway!) from the TRUE FACTS of the destruction of our Way of Life and the confiscation of our wealth to 'provide' to those who do not produce!  LOOTERS have won this round.

Inhibiting NLK in cancers with mutated PTEN could turn the cancer's strength against it

Inhibiting NLK in cancers with mutated PTEN could turn the cancer's strength against it | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it

A mutation that allows cells to grow out of control could also provide a new way to target and destroy cancer cells. This potential Achilles’ heel comes from a mutation in a gene called PTEN, which is found in a wide range of cancers.

 

PTEN is one of many tumor suppressor genes that we have to prevent our cells from growing out of control. If the PTEN gene stops working because of a mutation, it can cause tumours to develop – indeed many tumors have a mutated form of PTEN. However when a door closes, a window opens: the PTEN mutation helps the tumor to grow, but it could also mark it out as a target.

 

Researchers from the Institute of Cancer Research, London, found that switching off another gene known as NLK (Nemo-like kinase) killed tumor cells that had the PTEN mutation. This makes NLK a good target for drug developers to create a new cancer treatment.

 

Initially, the researchers took samples of tumor cells with and without the mutation, and switched off genes for important proteins that are used for regulating lots of processes in the cell. To do this they used small interfering RNA (or siRNA) which interfere with the processes of specific genes. These siRNAs block the chain of events that allow a gene to produce a protein, effectively switching it off. By switching off 779 genes individually, they could look for ones where cells with the PTEN mutation died and cells without the mutation survived.

 

This is how the researchers discovered the powerful effect of switching off the NLK gene. They are not certain how this works but it appears to protect a protein called FOXO1 that can act as a backup tumor suppressor and cause the cancer cell to die. When PTEN is mutated, the FOXO1 protein becomes vulnerable to a process called phosphorylation, which means it is ejected from the cell nucleus and destroyed. NLK is one of the proteins that phosphorylates FOXO1 and so by switching off the NLK gene, FOXO1 is able to do its job.

Coca-Cola admits Dasani is really just 'purified' tap water
Skip Stein's insight:

These companies who make beverages that are proven to be dangerous to your health and wellness now cannot even produce bottled water without lies and obfuscation!  With all the money spent on bottled water, the plastic contamination/pollution to the environment, you are much better off equipping your home (cheaper too!) with a good water filtration system.  Better for YOU and much safer/better for the environment.... many health benefits like removing contaminants, balancing the PH making the water 'softer' for bathing and washing and it just tastes better.  Purchase re-useable bottles; refill them with nice cold water and save thousands over just a few years’ time!

Thousands rally across the country to support gun rights and freedoms
Skip Stein's insight:

It is not just 'gun rights' the attack by the left against gun ownership is an attack against the foundation of our Country.  They want to override our most precious document, the CONSTITUTION of The United States of America.

 

Already Obama has used Executive Orders to bypass many protections in our Bill of Rights and Congress has done NOTHING.  It is the job of CONGRESS to restrain an over reaching Executive Branch but they have been complicit in this affront to our Freedom and Liberty!

 

Remember next election that most individuals in the House and Congress have totally violated their Oath of Office, to Uphold the Constitution!  They have allowed Obama to side-step it and are complicit with laws, regulations and Executive Orders that have abridged our RIGHTS!

Happy 2013! The Tipping Point Continues To Gain Momentum…. | Institute for Responsible Technology | | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it

An executive in a major food company mentioned recently that he believes consumers have reached a tipping point on the GMO issue. Wow! I can’t tell you how sweet it was to hear those words. Now that a few executives who follow the issue are starting to name the phenomenon, it will hopefully spread and result in new non-GMO marching orders for the industry. Yet it’s also a time when the biotech industry is scrambling to fight back, so we have to be more vigilant than ever.

Our bodies get Vitamin D from the sun, but as dermatologist Richard Weller suggests, sunlight may confer another surprising benefit too. New research by his team shows that nitric oxide, a chemical transmitter stored in huge reserves in the skin, can be released by UV light, to great benefit for blood pressure and the cardiovascular system. What does it mean? Well, it might begin to explain why Scots get sick more than Australians ..
