Within our inner ear, there are structures known as the semicircular canals where there is fluid and crystals attached to cilia, or little hair like projections.
lloyd stanley gordon's insight:

Chronic Rhinosinusitis  could  be  implicated  in  health  challenges due  to  dizziness,  possibly  as  a  result  of  the  seepage  of  infection  into the  inner ear. This  post  is, therefore,  well  worth  noting  in this  context  and  in particular  if  you  have  experienced  spells  of  dizziness  in the  past.

Symtomatology of nasal polyps (NP) is relatively non-specific and other nasal conditions that cause nasal may be mistaken for NP. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy otoscopic (OT) examination in ...
lloyd stanley gordon's insight:

Otoscopic examination  is  one  avenue  to  proceed  alon  to  determine  the  presence  of  Nasal  Polyps (NP) but , of  a  truth,  it  is  lacking in  specificity  and  the  new  Fiber Optic Rhinoscopy offers  tremendous  possibilities  for  improvement  in  clinical  diagnossis  and  hence  swifter  treatment  which  can  be  fine  tuned to  a  greater degree  of  appropriateness  and  hence  accuracy. I  have  witnesed  surgical  proceedures  in progress for  the  removal  of polyps at  the  clinic  of  Dr  Andre  Sultan  who  mentored  me in  Oto- Laryngology during  my  sojourn in  Paris. It  is  quite  a  painstaking  process  and it  is  very  important  for the  surgeon to  be  reasonably  certain of  the  basis  for  believing  that  polyps are  present and  of  the  need  for  their removal.I  was in  Paris  as  a  French  Government Scholar  and  candidate  for  the  doctorate of  the  Ecole  Pratique  des  Hates  Etudes  in  Botanical  Taxonomy, and  more  specifically  with  the  possibility  for  transfer  to  Medicine/Medical  Physiology  and  Psychiatry.  I  will  be  encouraging my  clinical  medical  partner, Dr  Halda  Shaw,  founding  physician of  the  Eatern  Caribbean  Physician's  Group,  and the new Oto Laryngology Association  in Jamaica  to  look  into  the  benefits  of  incorporating this  new modality  into  his  Practice.

7 Reasons Why Genetically Modified Foods Will Never Be Labeled And Why It Won’t Matter In The Future

7 Reasons Why Genetically Modified Foods Will Never Be Labeled And Why It Won’t Matter In The Future | RHINOSINUSITIS & HAEMORRHOIDS | Scoop.it

August 17, 2013 Dprogram.net

(WakingTimes) – There are many arguments in favor of mandatory labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMO). However, corporate lobbyists have been very effective in preventing any GMO labeling legislation from being enacted into law. The public is in favor of the idea, but politicians are only on board until voting polls close after which point they revert back to the corporate ideology preventing people from ever knowing the truth about what’s in their food. In the west, the probability of such laws ever being passed are very unlikely. Hate to be a party pooper, but here are 7 reasons why GMO foods will never be labeled... http://dprogram.net/2013/08/17/7-reasons-why-genetically-modified-foods-will-never-be-labeled-and-why-it-wont-matter-in-the-future/

lloyd stanley gordon's insight:

It  is  absolutely  criminal  for  these  foods  to  not  be  separately labled as  GMO  when we  have  not  gone through the  many lifetimes  on Terra to  test them adequately  for our  safety. Always  it  is  economics  that  wins  through; the  same  thing was true  for  slavery until  some  politicians  realise the  evils  they  were  tacitly endorsing, or  so the  stories  go. I  wonder  what  would  Lord  Wilberforce  and  Abraham Lincoln  make  of  this when  asked  about  the  similarities  to  the  veils  men  confronted  in  endorsing  placing  others  under the yoke? I wonder if  the  politicians  and  economists  eat  these  foods?

Now days you can look at the barcoded labels and know that a GMO product will start with 8 followed by 4 more digits. Regular bananas has a 4-digit number -4011. Organics now start with 9 with 4 more digits.

The reason why you may not have thought much about these pesticide plants before is because our media has found itself in an unhealthy alliance with well paid spokespeople who aggressively represent the biotech industry’s point of view.

You become what is in what you eat. Do you want to consume food full of pesticides? They are dangerous, disease causing and can become deadly. Just read the facts if you can find them.

Primary cilia and kidney injury: current research status and future perspectives

Cilia, membrane-enclosed organelles protruding from the apical side of cells, can be divided into two classes: motile and primary cilia. During the past decades, motile cilia have been intensively studied. However, it was not until the 1990s that people began to realize the importance of primary cilia as cellular-specific sensors, particularly in kidney tubular epithelial cells. Furthermore, accumulating evidence indicates that primary cilia may be involved in the regulation of cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, and planar cell polarity. Many signaling pathways, such as Wnt, Notch, Hedgehog, and mammalian target of rapamycin, have been located to the primary cilia. Thus primary cilia have been regarded as a hub that integrates signals from the extracellular environment. More importantly, dysfunction of this organelle may contribute to the pathogenesis of a large spectrum of human genetic diseases, named ciliopathies. The significance of primary cilia in acquired human diseases such as hypertension and diabetes has gradually drawn attention. Interestingly, recent reports disclosed that cilia length varies during kidney injury, and shortening of cilia enhances the sensitivity of epithelial cells to injury cues. This review briefly summarizes the current status of cilia research and explores the potential mechanisms of cilia-length changes during kidney injury as well as provides some thoughts to allure more insightful ideas and promotes the further study of primary cilia in the context of kidney injury.

Natural  methods  are  always  best  as  they  do  not  disturb  the body's  Wellness  unduly.Many  pharmaceutical methods although  offering relief often create  other  helth  challenges  in  their performance. One area  in  which this  is  well  known is  in  the   Ear, Nose, and  Throat domain of  therapy,  or  standard  medicine. Some  nasaal  sprays  may  for example occasion  any  or  all of  the following: headache, viral  infection,sore  throat, nosebleeds,  and  coughing. Try  these natural  remedies including  my  naturopathic Naseirie prepration  which can be  used to  irrigate  the nostrils by  dropwise administration,  or  by  placing  a drop  on each  of  two  finger tip  and simply  massaging  it  in.

U.N. - ECOLOGICAL WAKE-UP CALL THAT COUNTERS CORPORATE-FRIENDLY 'FREE' TRADE AND OUR INDUSTRIAL FOOD PRODUCTION

http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/09/23-5

 

The world needs to "wake up before it is too late" and usher in a paradigm shift in agriculture that moves away from industrial agriculture in favor of “mosaics of sustainable regenerative production system" that favor small-scale farmers and local food production, a new report from a UN body states.

The report—WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE: MAKE AGRICULTURE TRULY SUSTAINABLE NOW FOR FOOD SECURITY IN A CHANGING CLIMATE (PDF) —http://unctad.org/en/pages/PublicationWebflyer.aspx?publicationid=666

...was written with contributions from over 60 experts, and finds that "urgent and far-reaching action" is needed to address the "collective crisis" of "rural poverty, persistent hunger around the world, growing populations, and mounting environmental concerns."

 

However, the call from the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) flies in the face of the goals laid out by trade deals now being negotiated including the secretive Trans Pacific Partnership....

FARMING AND KNOWLEDGE MONOCULTURES ARE MISCONCEIVED

Food needs can be met with a new vision for agriculture and science
In mainstream policy and corporate thinking, scientific knowledge and global markets are considered key for food security. This has resulted in the industrialisation and laboratory research-led intensification of agricultural systems, inputs and food-supply chains.
But intensified systems do not meet global food needs — they mostly suit export markets and corporate interests.... an industrial monoculture model of production — of both food and knowledge — avoids its ecological and social costs, while suppressing more effective sustainable alternatives, and underexploits science's potential versatility.... http://www.scidev.net/global/agriculture/opinion/farming-and-knowledge-monocultures-are-misconceived.html

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, September 5, 2013 6:04 PM

Here is quite a list of documented material.

Samantha Fuller's curator insight, October 2, 2013 1:31 PM

"Our modern energy-, chemical- and genetically modified organism (GMO)-intensive industrial food and farming systems are the major cause of man-made global warming." Studies show that not only are greenhouse gasses caused by Carbon Dioxide but also by methane and nitrous oxide. Farming includes so many different ways of using fuel form the machinery to the end of food production. Another way farming isn't helping is through deforestation, and wetlands destruction. "When you add it all up, the picture is clear—contemporary agriculture is burning up our planet. And factory farms or, in industry lingo, Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), play a key role in this impending disaster." Climate rise is complex but a few of the top reasons are coal burning, and fossil fuels. To get this under control we would need to stop using 90% of the fosil fuels we are using.

Sally J. Everett's curator insight, October 10, 2013 9:33 AM

We can't live in fear of the future, we have to have farms no matter what they emit into the air. Without farms, we couldn't survive.

July 12, 2013 Ethical Corporation

Supermarkets in North America and Europe are overflowing with organic-labelled fruit, vegetables, eggs and meats. More than 80 countries have organic standards and products carry one or more of 200 seals, logos and certification claims.

But are consumers able to make informed choices? What’s the real ethical impact of “buying organic”? The answers are murkier than you might think.... http://www.ethicalcorp.com/supply-chains/organic-food-%E2%80%93-what-%E2%80%98organic%E2%80%99-label-really-worth

organic foods aren't really healthier. Insects and other organisms can root into the product and cause it to rot.

It's good to keep an eye out for these things when you shop. A little knowledge goes a long way.

Jose's curator insight, March 20, 12:33 PM

After reading this article and having worked at a organic farmers market, i do not believe everything labeled as "organic" can all be 100 percent accurate. Although many are certified or classified as being organic i do not believe what the organic companies are trying to sell us. Makes me as an individual believe what is going on in the world, where you cannot trust what is being put down your mouth. Obviously a person has to eat but what exactly are they eating is the proper question. Certainty an eyebrow raising situation i believe everything is a scam. People will pay for something that is labeled as "organic" which only profits the business and is all about money, rather then be as a positive interest to an individual.
