Lard: The New Health Food?
by Pete Wells
November 22, 2013
Extending this astonishing offer was the food writer Corby Kummer. In response to the news that New York City's health commissioner had asked local restaurants to stop using cooking oils containing trans fats.
Lard, he cheerfully reported, contains just 40 percent saturated fat (compared with nearly 60 percent for butter). Its level of monounsaturated fat (the "good" fat) is "a very respectable 45 percent," he noted, "double butter's paltry 23 or so percent." Kummer hinted that if I wanted to appreciate the virtues of this health food, I needed to fry shoestring potatoes or a chicken drumstick. What did I know about lard? Bupkes.
What science tells us about the safety of genetically modified foods
by John Timmer
October 4, 2013
Many aspects of modern technology make people a bit uneasy, but genetically modified foods may be in a class by themselves. Labs all around the world make genetic modifications of organisms-bacteria, plants, and animals-365 days a year.
And some of the results of that work have been ingested by humans for years, often in the form of life-saving drugs. But genetically modified crops remain controversial around the globe, and while they're commonly used in the US, they have almost no presence in the European market. The worries about GMO foods largely focus on their safety, but much of the debate ignores the extensive studies that have been done to understand both the potential risks and what we've learned about them. In response to this perceived gap in understanding, a group of Italian scientists have now performed a comprehensive review of the scientific literature on GMO crops (we were made aware of the review by Real Clear Science). The results suggest that GMO crops are safe for us, but there are some remaining concerns about their environmental impact that need to be nailed down. In the meantime, the authors suggest that GMOs represent a serious challenge for science communication with the public.
The Most Overlooked, Effective Prescription Drug
by Jamie Deckoff-Jones, MD
September 23, 2013
Oxygen makes up almost 21% of every breath we take. It is fundamental to life. Without it, we die in minutes. It is an odorless, colorless gas that is poorly understood by most doctors, even though it is regulated as a prescription drug in most countries.
An oxygen concentrator delivers oxygen through a tube to the patient via a cannula in the nose, a simple mask, or a non-rebreather mask. A non-rebreather mask has a reservoir which holds pure oxygen until the breath is taken; it has one way valves to prevent inspiration of ambient air and to allow exhalation gases out so carbon dioxide is not retained. Tanks are quieter, but at the high flows I'm using, need to be replaced frequently. Concentrators are noisy, but easier to move around and never run out, as they extract the oxygen directly from the air in the room. Concentrators can be portable, but most portables only produce 1-2 L/min (liters of flow per minute).
Piers Morgan offered $1 million to survive 1,000 vaccine shots; Alex Jones and Health Ranger announce vaccine challenge on national radio
by Mike Adams
Following an hour of discussion about the toxicity of the destructive chemicals and heavy metals still used in vaccines -- a fact openly admitted by the CDC -- Jones suggested that executives of vaccine companies should be executed if found guilty...
Adams suggested that instead of a regular execution, they should simply be injected with large quantities of their own medicines -- the very same vaccines that are routinely injected into infants and children across America. This conversation soon morphed into the idea that Piers Morgan should be offered $1 million if he agrees to be injected with 1,000 vaccines. [Watch the video...]
Specialty Food Purchases on the Rise
August 27, 2013
Nearly 75 percent of U.S. consumers report buying more specialty foods this year, an increase from 2009. Nearly one quarter of at-home food dollars are spent on specialty items like artisana chocolates, cheeses and oils.
For the second year, the top five categories that consumers are buying most include chocolate, olive oil and other specialty oils, cheese, yogurt and kefir, and coffee; salty snacks have jumped from ninth to sixth place among most purchased specialty foods. Mobile shopping is working for specialty consumers as well with 43 percent of specialty food consumers using their mobile phones to buy food, and nearly half buy foods with locally-grown ingredients. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are emerging as a hot topic for specialty food consumers, who are four times more likely to seek out non-GMO foods than are non-specialty food consumers, according to the survey.
Chiropractors Who Publish the Truth About Vaccines to be Silenced in Australia
by Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland J.D.
August 13, 2013
In a brazen restriction of freedom of speech, chiropractors in Australia are being told they can no longer give their patients any information criticizing vaccines, and they must take down any anti-vaccine material from their websites.
If there could possibly be one country with a worse pro-vaccine bias than the United States, it just might be Australia. Starting with the (wrong!) presupposition that vaccines are safe and effective, there are moves to silence any opposing viewpoints on vaccines, including the chiropractic profession. Working from a healing paradigm that does not include drugs, the chiropractic profession has a long history of healing people. But this infuriates the medical profession that believes only drugs can treat sickness. The chiropractic profession has suffered much opposition in the U.S. also from the American Medical Association (AMA), who historically has tried to destroy them. The Supreme Court eventually found the AMA guilty of conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry.
Chiropractors In Australia Barred From Making Antivax Claims
by Emily Willingham
August 8, 2013
The connection between being a chiropractor and eschewing vaccines goes back to an emphasis on subluxations as a cause for disease rather than, you know, infectious agents like viruses and bacteria.
Chiropracty subluxated itself into medicine in 1895 when a "magnetic healer and grocer" in Iowa claimed that he'd restored a deaf man's hearing using the approach. The practice is based on the idea that the things that are wrong with you arise from misalignments of your spinal column (subluxations), but the level of adherence to this odd philosophy among chiropractors can vary.
Junk! Organic! Fair Trade! Have You Noticed The Food Fight's Heating Up?
by Sascha Garrey
July 2, 2013
Food used to be a simple pleasure. But lately, it seems there are a million things to worry about when it comes to food. Even buying a plain-old bunch of carrots can induce anxiety: Are they local? Are they organic? How much vitamin A do I need anyway?
And then there's the "personal is political" stance taking over many modern American kitchens. These are the raw-whole-natural-organic-local-fair-trade types who oppose the mainstream industrialization of food and food distribution. One example: the recent viral post published by BuzzFeed that lists some of the alarming health horrors linked to chemicals in everyday favorites like Froot Loops and milk.
Singapore Chiropractor, Aras Chiropractic, Provides Natural Solutions for Back Pain
Aras Chiropractic and Dr. Aras Ignatavicius D. C., are pleased to announce that locals can obtain back pain relief by utilizing the techniques and methods offered by the Singapore chiropractor under the guidelines of chiropractic medicine.
The methods are non-invasive and are all-natural. No pharmaceuticals are suggested or prescribed to patients pursuing this course of therapy. A therapeutic plan may include a number of techniques, some applied by the doctor and some that are the responsibility of the patient. The initial step when there is a subluxation is to provide a manual or mechanical adjustment to the spinal column. This allows the discs to move back into the optimum position. Pain is relieved and the body is able to begin a self healing process.
