Five Is Good, But Seven May Be Better

 

Current dietary guidelines recommend that people consume a minimum of five servings of fruits andvegetables a day, but researchers say that number should be upped to seven. A study of more than 65,000 men and women shows that the risk of premature death decreases with increased fruit and vegetable consumption. Interestingly, fresh vegetables appear to provide the greatest benefit, followed by salad and then fruit.Canned fruit, meanwhile, actually appears to increase the risk of death, perhaps because it is packed in sugary syrup. More… Discuss

NEWS: BRAIN DEVELOPMENT DISRUPTION IN THE WOMB LINKED TO AUTISM


Brain Development Disruption in the Womb Linked to Autism

Autism has been the focus of intense study in recent years, but experts are still far from understanding the root causes of the disorder. For a time, childhood vaccines were thought to be the culprit, but this theory has since been largely debunked. Now scientists have found evidence that the foundations for autism may be set in the womb, during prenatal brain development. Autistic children’s brains show a much higher incidence of cortical abnormalities in regions involved in language and social and emotional communication than their non-autistic peers. Abnormalities were identified in the brains of 90% of the children with autism studied, whereas only 10% of unaffected children exhibited abnormalities. More… Discuss

We Need to Clear the Air

Pollution is going to be the death of us. According to World Health Organization estimates, air pollution contributed to the deaths of seven million people in 2012, making it the world’s greatest environmental health risk. The deaths were concentrated most heavily in low- and middle-income countries, primarily in Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific region. Indoor air pollution appears to be a greater threat than outdoor air pollution, contributing to 3.3 million deaths in 2012 compared to 2.6 million for the latter. More… Discuss

UN Court Orders Japan to Halt Antarctic Whaling

Despite signing a 1986 moratorium on whaling, Japan has continued to allow it, much to the consternation of conservation and animal rights groups as well as the international community. The country has justified its continued hunting of whales by claiming that it is being carried out for scientific purposes rather than for human consumption, a claim that has been met with widespread skepticism. On Monday, the UN’s International Court of Justice ordered Japan to put a stop to its Antarctic whaling program, ruling that the scientific output of the program did not justify the number of whales being killed. Japan has said it will abide by the ruling. More… Discuss

NEWS: FOOD SECURITY THREATENED BY GLOBALIZED DIETS


Food Security Threatened by Globalized Diets

Traditional crops and diets around the globe are falling victim to globalization. Over the past five decades, diets have become 36 percent more similar. At the same time, farmers are increasingly giving up traditional crops, like cassavasorghum, and millet, in favor of things like wheat, rice, soybeans, and sunflowers. This trend of cultivating less diverse food crops poses a threat to food security, as a single pest or disease has the potential to wipe out crops on a mass scale. Furthermore, though these staple crops have played a major role in combating hunger, they are also contributing to the rapid rise of obesity. More… Discuss

Food Packaging Health Fears—Legitimate or Alarmist?

A group of scientists is calling for an investigation into the health risks of the thousands of chemicals in food packaging, saying little is understood about their effects on the body. They note that the known carcinogen formaldehyde is used in the manufacture of plastic bottles and cutlery and express concerns that it and chemicals like it could be leaching into our food. Critics maintain that the fact that few adverse health effects have thus far been identified suggests that the risks are modest at worst. Further, they note that the quantity of formaldehyde in plastic bottles pales in comparison to the amount that is naturally present in fruits and vegetables. More… Discuss

The plight of honeybees, which have been dying out en masse for reasons that have yet to be fully understood, has dominated bee news of late; however, bumblebeepopulations around the globe have also been in steep decline. For decades, experts have attributed this largely to habitat loss, but researchers have now identified two previously unknown threats to bumblebee survival—deformed wing virus and a fungal parasite called Nosema ceranae. These two pathogens had been known to affect honeybees, but they have now been observed in wild bumblebees as well. More… Discuss

PLAIN CIGARETTE PACKAGING PROMPTS SMOKERS TO CALL QUITLINES


Plain Cigarette Packaging Prompts Smokers to Call Quitlines

In October 2012, Australia introduced plain, olive green packaging for cigarettes that prominently feature asmoking-cessation helpline number, and the effort to curb the appeal of cigarettes appears to be working. Within a month of the redesigned packages reaching store shelves, calls to territorial quitlines spiked 78 percent. Six years earlier, Australia introducedcigarette packaging with bold health warnings and graphic medical images of cancerous lungs and gangrenous limbs. This was also associated with a spike in calls to quitlines, but the effect lasted only 20 weeks. The effect of the new, plain packaging is estimated at more than twice this. More…Discuss

In case you didn’t visit my YouTube Channel yet:
Wilderness Park Downey California My Movie #3_720HD 1.avi
(Audio: Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water)

This is an edited version of the originally uploaded “Wilderness Park In Downey California”. The main difference is the clips transition, and I think you will enjoy it more this way. Why did I make this movie? Because I believe that our time calls for refocusing on our psyche, on what makes all natural beings live in harmony. In other words I just took the time away from the modern word to look to nature, and rediscover its beauty, empathy, resilience, acceptance, and above all power to restore. It is the intent of the well known “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”, to restore, to build the bridge between the internal, overwhelming at times noise, and the external, harmony in nature.

Happy New Year, And I’ll see you on the trail!

Infobox references

Azodicarbonamide, or azobisformamide, is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C2H4O2N4.[1] It is a yellow to orange red, odorless, crystalline powder. As a food additive, it is known by the E number E927.

Use as a food additive

Azodicarbonamide is used as a food additive, a flour bleaching agent and improving agent. It reacts with moist flour as an oxidizing agent.[2] The main reaction product is biurea,[3] a derivative of urea, which is stable during baking. Secondary reaction products include semicarbazide[4] and ethyl carbamate.[5] The United States permits the use of azodicarbonamide at levels up to 45 ppm.[6] In Australia[citation needed] the use of azodicarbonamide as a food additive is banned. In Singapore, use is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a fine of $450,000[citation needed].

Other uses

The principal use of azodicarbonamide is in the production of foamed plastics as an additive. The thermal decomposition of azodicarbonamide results in the evolution of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and ammonia gases, which are trapped in the polymer as bubbles to form a foamed article.

Azodicarbonamide as used in plastics, synthetic leather and other uses can be pure or modified. This is important because modification affects the reaction temperatures. Pure azodicarbonamide generally reacts around 200 °C, but there are some products that the reaction temperature must be lower, depending on the application. In the plastic, leather and other industries, modified azodicarbonamide (average decomposition temperature 170 °C) contains additives that accelerate the reaction or react at lower temperatures.

Azodicarbonamide as a blowing agent in plastics has been banned in Europe since August 2005 for the manufacture of plastic articles that are intended to come into direct contact with food.[7]

Safety

In the United States, azodicarbonamide has generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status and is allowed to be added to flour at levels up to 45 ppm.[8]

In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive has identified azodicarbonamide as a respiratory sensitizer (a possible cause of asthma) and determined that products should be labeled with “May cause sensitisation by inhalation.”[9] TheWorld Health Organization has linked azodicarbonamide to “respiratory issues, allergies and asthma.” Britain, Europe, and Australia now ban its use in food.[10]

Toxicological studies of the reactions of azodicarbonamide show that it is rapidly converted in dough to biurea, which is a stable compound not decomposed upon cooking.[11]

Daily Pot Use Tied to Earlier Onset of Psychosis

Many people view marijuana as a relatively harmlessdrug, but the truth is that we still do not fully understand its effects on the brain. Research has linked cannabis use to some cases of psychosis, but experts are dividedon whether the drug triggers the psychosis in vulnerable individuals or whether people prone to psychosis are just more likely to smoke pot. A recent study of adults diagnosed with a psychotic episode seems to support the former hypothesis, finding that those who smoke marijuana daily tend to have their first psychotic episode when they are about six years younger than those who abstain from the drug. More… Discuss

Deadly Incident at Experimental US Nuclear Power Reactor (1960)

The only fatal nuclear reactor incident in US history occurred at the US Army’s SL-1 experimental nuclear reactor. It was being restarted after an 11-day shutdown when a control rod was withdrawn too far, causing a “prompt critical” reaction. Water surrounding the core explosively vaporized and lifted the enormous reactor vessel more than 9 ft (2.7 m) off the ground. All three operators—one of whom was impaled and pinned to the ceiling—died. Why was the incident rumored to be a murder-suicide? More…Discuss
