The GOLDEN RULE

This article by Sayer Ji, Founder,  posted on ‘GreenMedInfo.com’, provides details of issues concerning long term use of Aspirin, information of particular interest to Cardiac patients.

As far back as the 5th century BC the Greek physician Hippocrates wrote about the use of a bitter powder extracted from willow bark that reduced fevers and eased aches and pains.  Native Americans also used an infusion of willow bark for similar purposes. What was this remarkable “healing” principle within the bark that relieved disease?

Known as salicylic acid (from the Latin salix, willow tree), this pain-killing compound is widely distributed throughout plants, where it functions as a hormone.  The more vegetables and fruits you consume, the more likely you are to have a physiologically significant concentration of salicylic acid in your blood.  This is why, for instance, vegans and vegetarians generally have higher levels than most grain- and meat-based consumers.

Cardboard Bike Being Rolled Out

Since their invention, bicycles have been made lighter, more efficient, and more affordable. Yet, if one is to believe inventor Izhar Gafni, more can—and soon will—be done. Within months, mass production will begin on his lightweight, inexpensive, environmentally friendly cardboard bike. Though it sounds flimsy, the bicycle can supposedly support riders weighing up to 485 lb (220 kg). In addition, an organic waterproofing and fireproofing treatment ensures that the product will not simply melt in the rain or burst into flames if a cigarette butt is carelessly tossed its way. The bike could sell for as little as $20.More… Discuss
