Corn-based ingredient could replace BPA in plastics

(www.borganic.org) Oil and grain conglomerate Archer Daniels Midland has announced that the chemical isosorbide could function as a replacement for the embattled petroleum derivative bisphenol A (BPA). The company says it is the first to offer "renewable" (corn-based) isosorbide on such a large scale.

BPA is a ubiquitous chemical used in everything from eyeglasses to sports equipment to CDs. It mimics the effects of the hormone estrogen in the body, producing hormonal changes that have been linked to cancer, heart disease and even brain defects.

"BPA ... may impair the reproductive organs and have adverse effects on tumors, breast tissue development, and prostate development by reducing sperm count," writes C. W. Randolph in his book From Belly Fat to Belly FLAT.

Researchers believe that most people's BPA exposure comes from food, due to its use in clear, hard plastic water and baby bottles, and as an ingredient in the epoxy resins that line food and beverage cans. Canada and a number of U.S. states have already banned BPA's use in baby bottles, and the overall safety of the chemical is being evaluated by numerous governments.

According to an Archer Daniels press release, isosorbide "can be used in polyesters for inks, toners, powder coatings, packaging and durable goods; polyurethanes for foams and coatings; polycarbonates for durable goods and optical media; epoxy resins for paints; and detergents, surfactants and additives for personal care and consumer products."

The company's press release did not address whether any safety tests have been carried out on isosorbide. Under U.S. law, companies are not required to do any safety tests on new chemicals before introducing them onto the market.

Writing on FastCompany.com, Ariel Schwartz raises another concern about the idea that isosorbide can so easily replace BPA.

"The problem is that isosorbide is corn-based, and as anyone familiar with the world of biofuels knows, corn isn't the most sustainable choice for industrial applications," Schwartz writes. "Besides the massive amounts of resources required for grain production, there's the larger problem of taking up arable land to produce industrial ingredients."

Large fish die-off at the mouth of the Mississippi

(www.Borganic.org)
State wildlife officials are investigating a large fish kill at the mouth of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana.

"By our estimates there were thousands, and I'm talking about 5,000 to 15,000 dead fish. Different species were found dead including crabs, sting rays, eel, drum, speckled trout, red fish, you name it, included in that kill," said parish president Craig Taffaro.

The fish were discovered on August 22, washed up on the shore as well as near a boom that had been set up to catch oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The next day, a thick, orange substance containing tar balls and giving off a "strong diesel smell" was found around nearby Grassy Island, according to a press release. Nevertheless, the oil spill might be unrelated to the recent fish kill.

"We don't want to jump to any conclusions because we've had some oxygen issues by the Bayou La Loutre Dam from time to time,'' Taffaro said. "It does point to the need for us to continue to monitor our waters and that's what we'll be doing."

The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has issued a preliminary conclusion that the fish kill was caused by low oxygen levels in the water. According to head fisheries biologist Randy Pausina, extreme heat can cause oxygen levels in the water to plummet. When combined with already-low levels caused by nutrient-rich water flowing in from the Mississippi River, this can push levels below the threshold required to support aerobic life forms.

The Gulf of Mexico is home to the world's second-largest "dead zone," an area in which low oxygen levels have killed off all aquatic life. Scientists blame agricultural runoff -- consisting of nutrient-rich animal manure and fertilizer -- for causing the runaway growth of oxygen-consuming algae.

"No watershed projects or cleanup of the Gulf of Mexico 'dead zone' can hope to have long-term success unless synthetic nitrogen and phosphorus pollution is significantly reduced or eliminated," writes Will Allen in his book The War on Bugs.

Citizens fight back by uprooting GMO crop fields

(www.Borganic.org) The practice of citizens uprooting fields of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) may be undergoing a resurgence, reports the blog Food Freedom.

In the 1990s, activists across Europe regularly uprooted fields of GMO crops. Farmers in India burned fields of Monsanto's Bt cotton (which is engineered to produce pesticide in its tissues), objecting that they had not been warned they were planting experimental crops.

"Despite the heavy use of chemical fertilizer, traces of which still can be observed in the field, the Bt plants grew miserably, less than half the size of the traditional cotton plants in the adjacent fields," the Cremate Monsanto campaign said.

On August 15, 2010, French activists uprooted a field of GMO grape vines in plain view of police. The vines had already been cut down in 2009, after which security measure were installed. For their return visit, 60 activists managed to get through the gate and lock it behind them, trapping police outside the field. The activists condemned the used of public funding for open-field tests of GMOs "that we do not want."

Only one month earlier, activists in Spain destroyed two separate experimental GMO crops.

"This kind of direct action is the best way to respond to the fait accompli policy through which the Generalitat, the State and the biotech multinationals have been unilaterally imposing genetically modified organisms," they said in an anonymous communiqué.

After Monsanto offered 475 tons of GMO seed in relief following the recent earthquake in Haiti, farmers marched in protest of the "poison gift," saying it would make them dependent on international companies.

GMO crops are controversial for their ability to crossbreed with other crops, producing "genetic pollution." In addition, the health consequences of consuming such food is unknown.

"Estimates suggest that 80 percent of the soy production in the United States is genetically modified and over half of the corn planted in the country has been genetically modified …," write Brenda Watson and Leonard Smith in their book The Detox Strategy.

"The only way you can be certain you are not eating a GM food is to eat only organic food."

Follow these tips for better Vitamin D absorption

(www.Borganic.org) Vitamin D has come to the forefront recently as a hugely important vitamin for the human body. This makes it that much more urgent that we follow some simple steps to ensure our bodies are absorbing enough of this pivotal nutrient. Since most Americans are grossly deficient in vitamin D, it is important to spread the word about how to most effectively build your blood levels up.

The first and perhaps most obvious tip for better vitamin D absorption is to make sure you are getting enough UV (sun) exposure. Ideally, everyone would get about 15 minutes of UV exposure every day, exposing most of the body. However, this is not practical since most of us don't live in sunny locations year round.

UVB exposure, as opposed to UVA, is the only spectrum of UV light which facilitates vitamin D production. Sun exposure has long been vilified by the media and medical community as unhealthy. However, there is a reason that our skin tans. We were meant to be exposed to the sunlight, and our skin is equipped to handle some exposure, although some people do have better defenses against burning.

Even indoor tanning beds may have their proper use when it comes to therapeutic vitamin D exposure. Indoor tanning beds that emit more UVB rays may be of use for those that are indoors most of the time for long winters.

It is important that one not over expose themselves to both the natural sunlight and the rays of an indoor tanning bed. You should never let the skin get anything more than the slightest pink tint, and use your ethnicity and past experience to gauge your UV sensitivity.

If you burn easily, consider supplementing your diet with lycopene, a key nutrient that is found in heavy concentration in tomatoes. Studies recently showed that those with high levels of lycopene had a much higher "internal sunscreen," and burned much less easily, than those who did not take in a lot of lycopene. In fact, antioxidants in general may give your skin an edge against UV sensitivity and cut down on burning.

After exposure to UVB rays, make sure you wait as many hours as you can before showering. Why? After UV exposure, your skin produces a powdery substance that is then absorbed into the skin and converted to vitamin D by the body. If you wash this off too early, you interfere with the amount of vitamin D made, and hence do not get the full benefit.

When exposing the skin in the summer time, it is best to expose as much of the body as possible, other than the face and arms. Your legs and torso are great for making vitamin D. So, make the most of your natural sun exposure and allow the larger parts of your body to be bare.

Now, let's talk about vitamin D supplementation. While UVB exposure is still the absolute best way to synthesize vitamin D, supplements are a secondary approach to making sure you get enough of this vitamin as well. When looking for a supplement, make sure you choose one that is encapsulated in an oil base. These oil based capsules are most likely better absorbed since vitamin D is fat soluble.

TSA turns off naked body scanners to avoid opt-out day protests

(www.Borganic.org) Anticipating a nationwide grassroots surge of protests against naked body scanners and aggressive pat-downs, the TSA simply turned off its naked body scanners on Wednesday and let air travelers walk right through security checkpoints without being X-rayed or molested.

All across the country, air travelers are reporting that the TSA simply deactivated the naked body scanners and let people go right through without a scan. "Backscatter scanners are off. No scan. No patdown." reported a traveler from the Seattle airport. "Backscatter machines aren't being used at LAX," reported another traveler. "They're all roped off."

Much the same story is being reported all across the country.

The TSA is desperate to avoid protests

Shutting down the "National Opt-Out Day" by turning off the machines is the only logical move for the TSA, of course: The agency needed a way to defuse the growing grassroots resistance to its criminal violations of Americans' Fourth Amendment rights. So instead of facing what was sure to be widespread protest, the agency simply decided to turn off the machines for a day.

This action tells us all sorts of fascinating things about the TSA and its fabricated security excuses. Perhaps most importantly, it proves that the naked body scanners are not needed for air travel security in the first place. When it wants to, the TSA can just turn the machines off and resort to baggage X-rays and metal detectors. That's worked for years, and it apparently worked today, too.

And yet, up until today, the TSA has insisted that the naked body scanners are absolutely essential to detecting hidden bombs, and that "travelers won't be safe" unless they use the naked body scanners. So all of a sudden today it's okay for the TSA to put air travelers at risk of being blown up?

The TSA can't have it both ways. Either the naked body scanners are vital for air security and they need to be running 24/7 to keep everybody safe, or they're just another security con game being played out for the financial benefit of Chertoff and others who profit from the sale of such machines.

How can the TSA -- with a straight face -- say that naked body scanners are vital for air security but not on the busiest air travel day of the year?

As you can see, there are some serious holes in the TSA's mythology, and interestingly, this National Opt-Out Day indirectly exposed them by getting the TSA to turn off the naked body scanners. This is effectively an admission that they aren't important to air security.

Trying to avoid any challenge to its power

This action by the TSA also shows that the TSA is desperately trying to avoid being publicly embarrassed by the national-opt-out day protests. Lots of local and national news film crews were out at the airports today, hoping to catch something interesting on camera. But by turning off the naked body scanners, the TSA was able to stage a "calm looking" day at the airport.

As soon as the TV cameras leave, however, they can turn those machines right back on and start molesting people once again. This is classic behavior of police state tyrants: They present a calm, professional image to the media, but once the cameras leave, all of a sudden their hands are back down in your pants.

I predict the TSA will have the machines turned right back on by Friday, and more reports of sexual molestation and inappropriate pat-downs will continue to emerge.

Many people just skipped the airports altogether

The other big travel news today was that lots of travelers decided to simply skip the airports altogether. NaturalNews received emails from several travelers who described major U.S. airports as "nearly empty."

Meanwhile, traffic was terrible on the freeways. The Massachusetts Turnpike played host to a 30-mile traffic jam today (http://www.thebostonchannel.com/r/2...).

A new Zogby poll indicates that 43% of the American public will seek alternatives to flying due to the TSA's aggressive pat-downs and naked body scanners (http://www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews....). That's going to add up to a huge financial hit for the air travel industry in the months ahead. The TSA could end up destroying much of the air travel industry altogether!

The first 13 minutes or so are about the song itself. After that, it's mostly a discussion about freedom and the Bill of Rights. You can watch that video commentary for free at:

Thank you to all who participated in the National Opt Out Day. In getting the TSA to turn off its naked body scanners, we exposed the TSA's "big lie" about air travel safety.

Diet rich in antioxidants found to lower risk of diabetes

(www.Borganic.org) Pharmaceuticals are not the answer to cure or treat diabetes. Avandia is the latest drug to be questioned for its efficacy, and its side effects increase the risk of heart attack by 43%. The Commission on Human Medicines in Great Britain has recommended pulling the drug because its risks outweigh the benefits. The FDA has decided to keep it on the market as it continues to destroy the lives of millions of unsuspecting users. Research demonstrates that the key to stop the escalating explosion in diabetes cases is not with a drug but rather with a natural diet packed with nutrients and antioxidants.

Diabetes Drugs Don`t Treat the Underlying Problem
It`s no surprise that research continues to validate that diet is more effective in halting the metabolic effects that lead to diabetes than dangerous and ineffective drugs. Drugs work to force sugar out of the blood and into cells regardless of whether it`s needed for energy. A natural diet of fresh vegetables and lean protein sources prevents the surge of glucose seen after a high processed carbohydrate meal by preventing the initial release of sugar.

Study Confirms Diet is Critical to Diabetes Prevention
The results of a study performed in Italy and presented to The Endocrine Society confirmed the effectiveness of diet and diabetes prevention. Study participants were placed into four groups and given a 1,500 calorie diet. Half were placed on a diet that was concentrated in antioxidants (fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts) and the other group ate a standard low calorie diet along with taking a diabetes drug.

While all participants lost weight due to the reduced calorie diet, only the group eating the antioxidant diet showed a significant decrease in insulin resistance and a significant increase in blood glucose control. No measurable effect was seen in the group taking the drug. The principal author concluded, "The beneficial effects of antioxidants are known, but we have revealed for the first time one of their biological bases of action - improving hormonal action in obese subjects with the metabolic syndrome". A diet high in antioxidants is known to help prevent and treat diseases ranging from heart disease to cancer and dementia.

Enlist an Antioxidant Diet in your Disease Prevention Arsenal
Antioxidants from natural foods neutralize the effects of free radicals that damage the small energy generating mitochondria found in all cells. This leads to cellular dysfunction and ultimately to cell death when the damage becomes too much to sustain normal function. Free radicals are the primary vehicle driving the aging process and initiation of most disease processes. Include a variety of colorful berries, grapes, tomatoes, carrots, spinach, broccoli, nuts and seeds to naturally combat the damage caused by normal metabolic activity.

The standard medical protocol to prevent and treat diabetes is to prescribe from a long list of FDA approved medications and incorporate a low fat diet void of antioxidants. Drugs typically prescribed to diabetics are ineffective and many have been shown to be dangerous. Unprocessed foods are packed with natural antioxidants that can lower the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease, and they provide a much better choice than the pharmaceutical alternatives promoted by the medical profession.

TSA assaulting cancer survivors

(www.Borganic.org) New evidence is emerging that the TSA is assaulting and humiliating cancer survivors as part of its aggressive pat-down procedures. Last week, a breast cancer survivor (and former flight attendant) who lost one of her breasts to cancer was forced by TSA to remove and show them her prosthetic breast as part of their security pat-down procedure.

Her name is Cathy Bossi, and she didn't even opt out of the naked body scanner. TSA agents suspected her breast prosthesis might be a bomb, so after she was irradiated by the body scanners, they subjected her to an aggressive pat-down as well. A DailyMail article reports Bossi describing the encounter with the TSA agent, "She put her full hand on my breast and said, 'What is this?'. And I said, 'It's my prosthesis because I've had breast cancer.' And she said, 'Well, you'll need to show me that'." (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...)

TSA leaves another cancer patient covered in urine

In another outrageous incident reported by MSNBC, a retired teacher named Thomas Sawyer was left "humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine" after being subjected to an aggressive pat-down at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

"I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn't even speak," says Sawyer (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4029185...).

Sawyer is a bladder cancer survivor who wears a urostomy bag that collects his urine. He has to wear special clothing to accommodate the urine bag, and even though he tried to explain his medical condition to the TSA agents, they treated him with the same arrogant "Whatever!" attitude as they began the aggressive pat-down procedure.

During this pat down, the TSA agent dislodged his urostomy bag, causing urine to start dribbling down Sawyer's body. He then had to walk through the airport soaked in his own urine, board the airplane, and wait until the plane was in the air before he could use the bathroom to clean himself up. The TSA never apologized, never offered to help and never even acknowledged that they had done anything wrong.

This is the kind of cruelty the TSA is now engaged in on a daily basis, it seems. Humiliating cancer patients is just a small taste of the outrageous actions carried out by TSA agents in the name of "security."

TSA head says nothing will change

Despite the horrific abuses of travelers at the hands of TSA agents, TSA head John Pistole insists that nothing will change. "If you're asking, am I going to change the policies? No." he said in a CNN interview (http://www.politico.com/news/storie...).

The TSA keeps citing "terrorism" as the reason they have to treat American travelers as terrorists. As long as they keep pounding fear into our heads, in other words, they think they can get away with molesting and humiliating us.

Beware of handing power to the federal government. Once granted such powers, it will always seek to expand those powers, even if it means trampling on the rights, freedoms and dignity of the American people. The TSA was once a department of a couple hundred people. Now it's over 65,000 employees, and they're not going to easily give up their power to molest and dominate air travelers.

What you can do: Opt out when you travel

It's up to you and I to protest this harassment. Opt out when you travel, especially on the upcoming national opt out day: www.OptOutDay.com

JFK deathbed confession | Big news

(www.Borganic.org)

In the next episode of the hard-hitting second season of Conspiracy Theory, former Governor Jesse Ventura will take on what he has long regarded as the most significant event of his generation and the 60s era– the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The program will air this Friday, Nov. 19 at 10 PM EST / 9 PM CST, just days before the 47th anniversary of the iconic president’s death. But TruTV will air more than just memories and heated debate about the grassy knoll. For the first time ever on television, viewers will witness, at last, a confession in one of the most-controversial murders in all of history.

A “major figure” from recent U.S. history admits to involvement in the plot in an audio tape that will blow audiences away. The source names names, and Lee Harvey Oswald isn’t on the list. According to the show’s producers, Ventura’s team has even established new evidence that suggests the individuals allegedly involved in the assassination have powerful ties that even go as high as former President and former CIA director George H. W. Bush. Is this the key at last to why the media has been so reluctant to admit that someone else was shooting at Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963?

In the course of the episode, Jesse Ventura, a former Navy SEAL and Underwater Demolitions expert, attempts to recreate Oswald’s alleged shooting that day. He tracked down the exact make and model, as well as ammunition stock that the Warren Commission claims Oswald used. But despite the fact that Ventura qualified as an expert shot while in naval special forces training, and qualified again as an expert during his term as Governor in Minnesota, he could not duplicate the time and accuracy of Oswald’s fateful shots. Yet Lee Harvey Oswald only qualified as a “marksman,” two grades lower than Ventura. (Witnesses who shot with Oswald have said for years that he had “Maggie’s drawers”—that he frequently missed the target and generally did not meet the high standards of a serviceman.)

The House Select Committee on Assassinations matched Ventura’s findings back in 1978. Their investigation found a 95% or higher probability that John F. Kennedy was killed by more than one assassin, concluding that indeed a conspiracy took place, and debunking the rushed conclusions of the 1964 Warren Commission that Oswald acted alone. However, nearly half a century later, the media has continued to promote the lone gunman theory, even in spite of a skeptical public. The motives behind this mass-misconception are deep and probing indeed, and Ventura has been questioning the official account for many years now.

Two of Ventura’s best-selling books, American Conspiracies and Don’t Start the Revolution Without Me, have both delved deeply into what really happened in the assassination. Ventura’s writing partner Dick Russell has also written extensively on the subject in his book On the Trail of the JFK Assassins. Tune in Fri, Nov. 19 to find out what Ventura and his Conspiracy Theory team have now uncovered.

From TruTV’s “Conspiracy Theory”:

“JFK Assassination” – NEW!
Premieres Fri, November 19 at 10P
Never-published declassified CIA documents appear to support a link between the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the Watergate scandal that brought down Richard Nixon.

GM mosquitoes in Cayman Islands

(www.Borganic.org) Scientists at British biotechnology giant Oxitec recently developed a genetically-modified (GM) mosquito that, apart from a specific chemical antibiotic, is unable to successfully repopulate. And the company recently released millions of these GM mosquitoes in the Cayman Islands to see what would happen -- and they did so without proper approval or announcement -- prompting outrage by experts and the public over the unknown consequences of conducting such an irresponsible experiment.

Oxitec released the mosquitoes last year, but only just recently let the public know about it. The company has attempted to justify its decision by claiming its GM mosquitoes may help fight the spread of dengue fever by reducing or eliminating the wild mosquito population. But nobody knows what happens when these GM mosquitoes interact with other animals and humans, or how their altered genes will disrupt the living environment.

Seemingly content with its decision to hide the trial from the public initially, Oxitec had the audacity to announce at the recent annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene that its trial was "successful". But how the company can make such a preposterous statement without knowing the long-term effects of its irreversible decision is mind-boggling.

"Oxitec considers its trial 'successful' just days after the experiment has ended," explained Kathy Jo Wetter, a researcher at the Action Group on Erosion, Technology and Cooperation. "[U]nintended impacts on the environment cannot be known, and Oxitec's unproven technology could make things worse in the long term. There is no possibility of recall if something goes wrong -- who takes responsibility in that case?"

Not only are mosquitoes a necessary component of the natural food chain, representing the prey of various creatures like birds and bats, but they are also important pollinators in the same way that bees are. Even though they appear to be a nuisance, without them, the entire food chain could collapse.

Investigate Felony Groping | Breaking news

(www.Borganic.org)

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, incoming chief deputy DA of San Mateo Steve Wagstaffe said his office will prosecute TSA employees who engage in lewd and lascivious behavior while conducting Homeland Security mandated patdowns at the San Francisco International Airport in San Mateo County.

Wagstaffe told Alex Jones that county police will be sent to into the San Francisco International Airport. If they witness TSA employees engaged in criminal conduct, they will make arrests and the DA’s office will prosecute. Sexual battery in Mateo County is a felony if the molestation occurs beneath clothing and makes contact with skin and a misdemeanor if the touching occurs outside clothing.

The new government mandated hands-on searches are used for passengers who find naked body inappropriate, when something suspicious appears in screening, or randomly. They can take two minutes per passenger and involve sliding of the hands along the length of the body, along thighs and near the groin and breasts, according to the Associated Press.

In addition, a district attorney in the county south of San Mateo, Santa Clara, told Wagstaffe his office will also prosecute TSA employees for inappropriate sexual behavior at the San Jose International Airport.

Since the new search procedures went into effect, the web has exploded in opposition to naked body scanners and intrusive patdowns. Reports posted by the The Drudge Report, Infowars.com, and Prison Planet.com have gone viral on the internet and forced the mainstream corporate media to cover the issue.

“Nationwide outrage against the TSA is not only bringing to light new cases of airport abuse, it’s throwing fresh attention on previous incidents that have been going on for years,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote on Wednesday. Watson notes several lawsuits initiated against the TSA, including one connected to a 2008 incident at the Corpus Christi airport where the TSA exposed a young woman’s breasts.

Coverage of TSA groping and public outrage has resulted in airports around the country reconsidering the procedures.

Earlier today, Orlando Sanford International Airport decided to opt out from TSA screening. Larry Dale, the director of the Sanford Airport Authority in Florida, said he will send a letter requesting to opt out from TSA screening, and instead the airport will choose one of the five approved private screening companies to take over, according to central Florida’s WDBO.

“The outcry is huge,” Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison told the TSA administrator, John Pistole, at a Capitol Hill hearing yesterday. “I know that you’re aware of it. But we’ve got to see some action.”

“I’m not going to change those policies,” Pistole promised.

The Crash JP Morgan Buy Silver Manifesto or: How to Get Hedge Funds To Do Your Dirty Work For You And Drive the Price of Silver to $500

1 – JP Morgan has a huge short position in Silver – estimated to be 3.3 billion ounces – tied to an enormous, extremely precarious derivatives position (estimated to represent 1.5 trillion in risk to its balance sheet at $500 Silver).

2 – Various exchanges around the world have been caught manipulating the price of Silver using ‘naked’ short sales i.e., counterfeiting.

3 – Of all the actively traded commodities traded around the world, Silver is one of the least plentiful and its supply is shrinking, but its industrial uses are multiplying. The ‘networked’ age of global communications is built with Silver.

4 – Hedge funds are taking physical delivery of Silver – adding substantial demand as well as exposing these exchange’s naked short positions – who are already scrambling to deliver – jacking prices up to multi-decade highs – and inspiring these predatory funds to buy more Silver.

5 – There are billions of people around the world who are aware that banks have been committing fraud and embezzlement who are upset that their politicians seem only interested in helping the banks commit more fraud – who are looking for a cheap way to non-aggressively fight back and decapitalize these banks.

6 – Many of these people have the access and wherewithal to purchase 1 ounce of Silver – thus removing hundreds of millions of ounces of Silver from the ‘paper’ market – forcing additional scrambling by dealers to fill orders by buying back short positions – inspiring the funds to buy and take physical delivery of more Silver – creating a colossal short squeeze – in which JP Morgan stands to be the biggest loser.

7 – Buying Silver is how the world is monetizing its anger at the banks who stole their wealth.

Study: BPA destroys sperm

(www.Borganic.org) Results from a five-year trial on the effects of bisphenol-A (BPA) in human males has revealed that the popular plastics chemical destroys sperm. One of the few BPA studies involving humans, the trial sheds more light on the obvious harm BPA causes on male reproduction, and the need to immediately remove the chemical from from all products.

"This study counters the argument that only highly exposed populations are affected," explained Dr. De-Kun Li, author of the study and reproductive and perinatal epidemiologist at Kaiser Permanente's Division of Research in Oakland, Calif. "You can be exposed from the workplace. You can be exposed from consumer products. It doesn't really matter. Ultimately it will reflect in your urine."

Numerous other studies have found that BPA causes significant bodily harm. Back in August, a study in the journal Biology of Reproduction found that BPA causes genetic defects (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3988817...). The chemical is also known to mimic estrogen in the body and alter proper hormonal balance, which leads to serious illness (http://www.naturalnews.com/029898_B...).

In the recent study, data collected from Chinese workers exposed to BPA exhibited a clear connection between even very low levels of BPA and sperm destruction. BPA exposure resulted in a 300 percent increased risk of low sperm concentration and low sperm vitality compared to those not exposed. Exposure also resulted in a 400 percent increased risk of reduced sperm count and twice the likelihood of decreased sperm motility.

"Our study shows that BPA could lead to pathological changes to human organs -- semen quality, in this case," explained Li to LiveScience. "In addition, this new finding of the detrimental effect of BPA exposure on semen quality raises the bar of BPA toxicity."

(www.borganic.org) High blood pressure is known as the silent killer: it has no symptoms and leads to a shortened life as micro cracks in the tiny blood vessels and arteries throughout the body become infiltrated with deadly plaque. When blood pressure remains out of control for many years the risk for coronary artery disease and stroke are greatly increased. Fortunately you can return your blood pressure to normal through dietary modification and by supplementing with essential natural nutrients which can help extend your life.

Lowering Blood Pressure with Drugs is Deadly
Nature has provided us with a host of vitamins, minerals and nutrients which are effective in lowering blood pressure without the need for dangerous pharmaceuticals. A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association has shown that tight control of blood pressure using drugs is associated with an increased risk of death. Artificially manipulating blood pressure with drugs is dangerous while supplementing with natural nutrients will lower disease risk factors and extend your life.

Losing Weight and Eating Blueberries to Lower Blood Pressure
The first step to lowering your blood pressure is to lose some weight. Dropping as little as 5% of your body weight can have a significant influence on blood pressure. The best approach is to eliminate all processed foods in favor of a natural diet including plenty of fresh vegetables and leafy greens, nuts, seeds, lean protein and healthy monounsaturated and Omega-3 fats. Avoid sugar, sweetened beverages and fruit juices as well as refined wheat based carbohydrates which have been linked with increased blood pressure and heart disease.

Blueberries have demonstrated a marked effect on lowering blood pressure by reducing free radical damage to the endothelium. Blueberries are packed with polyphenols that have been shown to lower LDL cholesterol oxidation while reducing deadly arterial plaque buildup. The results of a study published in The Journal of Nutrition confirm that adding blueberries to your diet for 8 weeks can lower blood pressure readings by up to 6%.

Natural Nutrients That Lower Blood Pressure

Pomegranate Extract: Pomegranate has been hailed as a powerful natural nutrient which provides support for the heart and blood pressure. Research has shown that the chemical compounds available in pomegranate extract are potent antioxidants and ACE inhibitors which dilate the blood vessels to lower blood pressure.

Grape Seed Extract: Grape seed extract is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to inhibit a specific protein which degrades the function of the inner arterial lining causing it to harden. Through this action it has a demonstrated ability to naturally lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of coronary artery disease by increasing blood levels of friendly nitric oxide.

Magnesium: The mineral magnesium is critical to many biochemical functions throughout the body and many people are grossly deficient due to eating a diet packed with nutrient-stripped processed foods and mineral depletion from poor farming practices. Magnesium works in conjunction with calcium, potassium and vitamin D providing essential support for proper muscle relaxation which assists blood pressure management.

It`s common practice for mainstream medicine to immediately prescribe drugs to lower the growing number of people presenting with high blood pressure. Research has shown that this is dangerous and increases the risk of premature death. The best strategy is to naturally lower blood pressure by eliminating all processed foods, losing weight and supplementing with a host of super nutrients that lead to lower disease risk and optimal health.

TSA Now Putting Hands Down Fliers’ Pants | Breaking news

(www.Borganic.org)

Big Sis turns up the heat: New super-enhanced pat-down more invasive Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Prison Planet.com
Tuesday, November 16, 2010

The TSA’s invasive new screening measures include officers literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing in a shocking new elevation of groping procedures that have stoked a nationwide revolt against privacy-busting airport security measures.

Having A Supply Of Healthy Foods That Last Just Makes Sense (AD)

A 54-year-old Missouri City man experienced similar treatment when he was going through security at Fort Lauderdale Airport.

Thomas Mollman was subject to a groping by a TSA officer that was tantamount to sexual molestation.

“I was wearing shorts at the time – between the underwear, right on the skin, all the way around the back, all the way around my front, 360 degrees, touched inappropriately,” he said.

“This was an assault. This was no different than a sexual assault,” said KTRK Legal Analyst Joel Androphy.

The level of abuse appears to be getting worse on an almost daily basis. First TSA agents use the back of their hands, then they outright grope you with the front, and now they are being trained to put their hands down traveler’s pants. What’s next? Mandatory bodily probes?

Even as the resistance to airport oppression grows, Big Sis and the TSA are responding by making the pat down procedures more invasive. Napolitano has figuratively said to the American people ‘let them eat cake’ as she slaps them in the face.

Given the fact that the TSA’s own woeful background checks for their own employees allows rapists and pedophiles to get jobs as pat down agents, will you allow TSA workers to put their hands down the pants of your daughter or wife?

UPDATE: Owen JJ Stone appeared on The Alex Jones Show today to discuss the incident and how the TSA goon ‘touched his junk’ by specifically patting his backside and testicles while his hand was inside Stone’s pants – video of the interview coming soon.

Genetically Modified Potatoes | Scientists Unleash New Monster

(www.Borganic.org) Genetic modification of the food supply has run rampant within the past couple of years. A new genetically modified creation has emerged, and may soon end up on your dinner table. Researchers in India have developed a genetically modified potato, loaded with genetically altered amino acids. It seems as if scientists are attempting to recreate nature entirely.

Genetically modified fish have threatened the very genetic coding of fish worldwide, and the genetically modified canola plant has spread into the wild. It is apparent that a tidal wave of genetic modulation has hit the environment very hard.

Genetically modified potatoes now threaten the purity of potatoes internationally. All it takes is a careless farmer to allow his modified crop to be planted elsewhere, without properly labeling the crop as modified. This would mix in the genetically modified crop with traditional, and even organic, crops. This is a legitimate environmental issue, as it is a major threat to food integrity.

Arguably as important as the need to protect our food supply, is the need to protect ourselves from the deadly effects of genetically modified food. Consuming genetically modified food can lead to auto immune disorders, organ failure, sterility, and much more.

If you are unfamiliar with the risks associated with modified food, you are most likely not familiar with how it is created.

The process in which food is genetically modified is extremely outlandish. Billions are spent each year to genetically modify the food supply, leading to an influx of tainted food products. Modifying foods requires one to tamper with the very genetic coding of the crop and/or seed.

The process entails the transfer of genes from one organism to another, such as taking particular genes from a pig and transferring them to a tomato. Not only does this defile nature, but it also leads to a host of health problems.

Due to the complexity of a living organism`s genetic structure, it is impossible to track the long-term results of consuming genetically modified food. Introducing new genes into even the most simple bacterium may cause an array of issues, highlighting the complexity of even the simplest organisms. Introducing new genes to highly complex organisms such as animals or crops is even riskier.

When introducing the gene to its new host, it is essentially impossible to predict the reaction. The genetic intelligence of the host could be disrupted with the introduction of the new gene, creating an adverse reaction. There is truly no way of knowing the long-term effects of genetically modified food, as there are too many variables. There is simply no room for science when Monsanto is involved.

Monsanto pressing for GMO sugar beet ban to be lifted

(www.Borganic.org) Sugar beet farmers from across the country are bemoaning the court ruling from last October that barred any further plantings of genetically-modified (GM) sugar beets until proper safety studies have been completed. But according to a recent Associated Press (AP) report, Monsanto spin doctors and industry groups have been busy petitioning the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to allow limited, self-monitored plantings of the crop in order to avoid what they say will be the devastation of the domestic sugar market.

Not only Monsanto, but a slew of sugar producer organizations are requesting that the USDA lift the ban so that farmers will have something to plant this year. Even the USDA itself has issued a 365-page report about the alleged need for farmers to be able to plant the RoundUp Ready sugar beets under a "closely monitored permit process intended to prevent contamination of other crops."

The irony of the proposal is that cross-contamination is one of the reasons why the sugar beets were banned in the first place. The court ruling declared that a proper Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) had to be put together before any further plantings could take place (http://www.naturalnews.com/027209_U...), and one of the goals of the statement is to determine how the GMO crop affects non-GMO and organic crops.

But growers and Monsanto do not want to wait. Using fear-driven rhetoric about how sugar prices will rise dramatically if plantings do not take place, the various groups are pushing to bypass the ruling and essentially re-legalize the plantings.

According to Lyndsay Cole, spokeswoman for the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Monsanto provided no details in its request that explained how it planned to "monitor" growers. And when asked, a Monsanto spokesman did not provide an answer.

The USDA is accepting comments on the issue from the public until December 6, 2010. You can submit your comments here:

Blacks have more serious cancer due to vitamin D deficiency caused by skin color

(www.Borganic.org) Women of African ancestry are more likely to develop a more aggressive form of breast cancer known as "triple negative," researchers have found, but the explanation for this correlation may have more to do with vitamin levels than with genetic predisposition.

Breast tumors may carry any combination of a variety of receptors, including estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors and HER-2/neu receptors. Because modern treatments have focused on targeting these three receptors, cancers that carry none of them -- that are triple negative -- are significantly harder to treat.

"Outcome disparities are therefore likely to increase, because fewer black women are candidates for these newer treatments," said researcher Lisa A. Newman of the University of Michigan.

To conduct the study, which was published in the journal Cancer, researchers compared the types of breast cancer diagnosed in white and black women at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit and African women at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Ghana. They found that while only 16 percent of white and 26 percent of black participants had triple negative cancer, the rate was 82 percent among African women.

The researchers immediately proposed a genetic explanation for their findings, suggesting that African ancestry predisposes women to develop triple negative breast cancers. As evidence, they cited studies showing that while breast cancer rates are lower among black women in the United States than among white women, black women tend to develop cancers at a younger age, and those cancers are more aggressive and more likely to be fatal.

The data may be interpreted another way, however. For example, a number of studies have identified traits including obesity, excess weight gain since childhood, failure to breastfeed after pregnancy and use of lactation suppressants as risk factors for basal-type breast cancers, of which triple negative cancers are a subcategory.

Meanwhile, cancer researcher Sarah Gehlert of the University of Chicago is conducting research into the effect community factors on breast cancer risk.

"Women who live in areas with ... a lot of violent crime, and who live in unsafe housing, without a lot of community support ... will be more likely to have sporadic mutations and will have [worse outcomes] with breast cancer," Gehlert said.

If women in Ghana and black women in Michigan live in more stressful, toxic environments than white Michigan women, this could partially explain the study's findings. Notably, Ghanian women in the study were also likely to develop cancer younger and to have larger, more advanced tumors. Similarly, a higher rate of triple negative cancer has also been found among Hispanic women in the United States, whose genetic ancestry is quite different than African American women.

One factor shared by black and Hispanic women is darker skin color and a corresponding predisposition to vitamin D deficiency.

"We produce vitamin D from UV sunlight, but melanin -- which gives dark skin its color -- blocks UV light," said Dr Helen Cooper of Birmingham University.

Vitamin D helps to regulate the immune system and has been associated with a lower risk of certain cancers. Researchers believe this is why rates of cancer are so much lower closer to the equator, where the sun is strongest.

In addition to helping prevent cancers in general, vitamin D may also help reverse the course of breast cancer.

"There is some evidence that Vitamin D can help transform breast cancer cells into healthy cells," writes Phyllis A. Balch in her book Prescription for Herbal Healing.

"Vitamin D supplements are not necessary; all that is needed for the body to manufacture adequate amounts of Vitamin D for fighting cancer is to expose your hands and face to sunlight for twenty minutes each day. Do not use sunscreen during this twenty-minute period, since sunblocks screen out the kind of ultraviolet light that stimulates the natural production of the vitamin."

FEMA Camps Confirmed

9www.borganic.org) As our previous article, “Bombshell: FEMA Camps Confirmed,” pointed out, Alex Jones returns to the TruTV series in an episode that is truly groundbreaking and deals with substantial aspects of the Homeland Security/ FEMA operation to spy on political dissidents and target anyone who opposes their system. The fact that this episode will be seen by millions is a major success in the Infowar. Don’t miss it, and be sure to record it to DVR, DVD or share it online with those in your circle of influence.

As economist Max Keiser argued during his appearance on the Alex Jones Show today, dominating Google’s Search Trends has been a major driver in influencing the major media with issues normally only covered in the alternative and internet-based media. The news cycle does respond to what is “hot” on the Internet, and driving key terms to #1 in the trends is a significant way of breaking through to the mainstream audiences who need to know this vital info.

Fresh food that lasts from eFoodsDirect (AD)

This is further evidenced by “Staged Terror,” which reached #3 in the trends today. The term was also initiated on the Alex Jones Show in response to the fact that Glenn Beck has joined ranks in warning that the government is again preparing to stage terror attacks. This is yet another indication that the alternative media message has broken through to major media figures. Thanks again for your help in fighting for awareness and truth.

You may freely use these images in your articles, blogs, videos, etc., and there's actually no need to credit NaturalNews. Please put these to good use fighting against this Nazi-style tyranny that we are now being exposed to at the hands of a power-hungry federal agency that has thrust us under police state control.

Normally I would not be so involved in an issue that isn't more directly related to health, but this is a freedom issue, and without our freedom, we have nothing. The U.S. Fourth Amendment clearly states that we are to be protected from "unreasonable searches and seizures," which would no doubt include being subjected to X-rated body scans and having our genitals and breasts groped and fingered by TSA agents.

These agents are engaged in the sexual molestation of our spouses and children. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030351_T...) They are terrorizing pilots, flight crews and passengers, and they reject any accusation that they're doing anything wrong whatsoever! (http://www.prisonplanet.com/tsa-no-...)

The TSA may even be hiring sexual predators right now! (http://www.prisonplanet.com/tsa-giv...)

It is time that we stopped these Nazi thugs in their tracks and took back our privacy, our dignity and our freedom.

Please distribute these TSA Nazi images and encourage others to protest this issue. And watch NaturalNews.com for more upcoming news about the TSA and the lawsuits now forming against this rogue government agency.

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." - Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Food wrappers leach harmful chemicals into food

(www.Borganic.org) Man-made chemicals are all over the place in today's environment, and many of them regularly come into direct contact with the food supply. A new study out of the University of Toronto has found that one of the primary sources of exposure to perfluorinated carboxylic acids (PFCAs), toxic chemical endocrine disruptors (EDs) used in many consumer products, is food wrappers.

Fast-food burger and fries paper wraps, potato chip bags, microwave popcorn bags, and many other forms of processed food product packaging contain various non-stick NS grease-resistant chemicals that are known to cause severe health problems. Clothing, bedding, carpet, cookware, and other common consumer products also contain applications of PFCAs like perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a highly-persistant, toxic chemical that is known to pollute human blood and disrupt hormonal balance.

"We suspected that a major source of human PFCA exposure may be the consumption and metabolism of polyfluoroalkyl phosphate esters or PAPs," explained Jessica D'eon, a graduate student in the University of Toronto's Department of Chemistry, and co-author of the study. "PAPs are applied as grease-proofing agents to paper food contact packaging such as fast food wrappers and microwave popcorn bags."

The team administered and observed the effects of PAPs and PFCAs in rats over the course of three weeks. They compared their findings to previous findings in human participants, and discovered that PAPs definitely build up in the body and cause long-term damage to health -- and people all over the world are exposed to them on a regular basis.

Previous studies have linked PFOA chemicals to high cholesterol (http://www.naturalnews.com/029676_P...), as well as thyroid problems, lowered immune function, and cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/022645.html).

Many doctors still in bed with Big Pharma

(www.Borganic.org) The cozy relationship between doctors and drug companies has received a lot of attention recently as numerous reports have exposed widespread corruption between the two groups. But a new study has found that, despite making promises to clean up their act, many doctors continue to accept gifts and cash from Big Pharma.

Back in 2009, a study out of Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital found that 84 percent of doctors have ties to drug companies, a ten percent drop from five years earlier. But roughly two thirds of doctors still accept drug samples, while 70 percent accept food and beverage incentives from drug companies. And fourteen percent continue to accept cash payments for services.

In October, ProPublica, Consumer Reports, and National Public Radio (NPR), released a report about the $7 billion spent by drug companies over the last three years to settle cases involving such unethical payouts. Even so, Big Pharma continues to spend millions on doctors to influence their prescribing practices (http://www.naturalnews.com/030111_d...).

While the practice has tapered off some, many say the rate of decrease is not enough. Drug companies are still wining and dining doctors, influencing the way they perceive and prescribe drugs. And many doctors accept gifts and cash without disclosing it publicly anyway, which means that many more doctors could be on Big Pharma's payroll than current studies indicate.

Doctors who continue to accept drug company gifts have come out in defense of themselves, claiming that the gifts do not influence their drug prescribing decisions. But not everyone is convinced.

"Cultures to the beginning of time have figured that gifts engender a positive response toward the giver," explained Eric Campbell from Massachusetts General Hospital, author of the study, to Reuters. "What's hysterical is the fact that physicians deny that these happen. It's absolutely ludicrous to think that drug companies would spend all their time and money giving away this stuff if it didn't work."

Your Salt may be Killing You

(www.borganic.org) Salt is one of the most basic and ubiquitous food seasonings. Historically, salt has been an extraordinarily valuable food preservative for most cultures in the world. Natural salt contains a vast array of essential minerals and continues to be incredibly valuable for our health. Today, modern refineries have chemically altered most salt making it hazardous for human consumption.

Typical table salt is composed of 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as anti-flow and anti-caking agents. Table salt is bleached and processed with excessive heat that alters the natural chemical structure and destroys essential trace minerals. Hazardous molecules such as iodine and fluoride are added along with toxic substances like aluminum hydroxide (used as an anti-moisture additive).

This processing takes the "life" out of the salt making the unnatural sodium chloride and chemical fillers more challenging to metabolize. The body must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy and up to 23 times the cell water to neutralize the damaging effects of the salt. The inability of the body to effectively neutralize these toxic substances results in:

Unsightly cellulite
Rheumatism, arthritis, & gout
Kidney & Gall Bladder stones
High Blood Pressure

Many people have turned to sea salts for their regular salt usage. Unfortunately, many of our lakes and oceans are loaded with toxic poisons like mercury, PCBs and dioxin. Oil spills can toxify a lake or ocean's salt stores for decades after the incident. Over 85% of all sea salt producers are using a refining process for their salt production. Based on this understanding it is wise to assume that sea salt can no longer be trusted as a pure source of essential salts.

Pink salts are one of the very few varieties of salts that have remained pure and stable in nature. Natural pink salts are known for their essential trace minerals and their ability to regulate cellular fluid balance. These salts take on their color due to the presence of iron oxide and their abundance of essential trace minerals. These minerals are in a very small colloidal form and inter-connected in structure allowing for easy absorption and a nutrient synergy that exponentially enhances their effect in the body.

Pink salt is often labeled based on its geography. The most reputable type of pink salt is Himalayan Salt although it is also found in Hawaii, Australia, Peru, Utah, and Poland.
Contrary to popular belief these salts do not elevate blood pressure. Their ability to regulate fluid balance allows them to naturally stabilize blood pressure at a healthy and supportive level for the body. Some of the other benefits of pink salts include:

Promoting blood sugar health
Energy Production (hydro-electrical)
Absorption of food particles
Supports vascular & respiratory health
Promoting sinus health
Prevention of muscle cramps
Promoting bone strength
Regulating your sleep & moods
Supporting your libido
Enhances immune function
Stabilizes heart rate & blood pressure
Extracts excess acidity

Pink salts provide a great remedy for asthma and allergy symptoms as well. The salts have a unique ability to unplug the thick mucus secretions in the lungs & stop overflow of nasal secretions when water is plentiful. Taking it as a natural anti-histamine, one can drink 2-3 cups of purified water with a pinch of healthy salts.

Remember to listen to your body when it comes to the use of these powerhouse salts. Certain body types depend on more salts than others. If you crave salts, you are typically in need of trace minerals. Follow your instincts and use a bit more pink salt on your foods. If you have no craving for salts then only use small amounts of pink salts.

Why does your child have a mystery tummy ache? From fructose!

(www.Borganic.org) Here's a common scenario: a young child or even a teenager complains of a tummy ache. But he or she has no fever or few other symptoms. So the doctor says there's nothing wrong with the youngster, other than maybe a little gas. So the little kid or adolescent is suspected of faking a stomach problem to stay out of school. However, a new study just unveiled at the American College of Gastroenterology's (ACG) 75th Annual Scientific meeting held recently in San Antonio, Texas, may have a simple explanation for all those mysterious tummy aches many children swear they have. The culprit? Intolerance to fructose.

Unfortunately, the typical American diet contains processed foods and soft drinks that are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, so countless kids are exposed daily to the stuff. And it turns out fructose intolerance, also called fructose malabsorption, is common in children of all ages with recurrent or functional abdominal pain.

Researchers Daniel Lustig, M.D. and Bisher Abdullah, M.D., pediatric gastroenterologists with the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and Health Center in Tacoma, Washington, investigated a total of 245 children between the ages of 2 and 18 with unexplained chronic abdominal pain alone or associated with constipation, gas or bloating and/or diarrhea. A breath hydrogen test (BHT), which is a marker for fructose intolerance, was performed in all patients in the study. If a patient's breath hydrogen exceeds 20 points above baseline, then the patient is likely fructose intolerant. And the BHT was found to be positive in 132 of 245 patients – a whopping 54 percent.

All of the 132 patients with a positive BHT for fructose were placed on a low fructose diet and close to 70 percent had a resolution of their stomach pain when they stayed away from fructose.

"With the widespread use of high fructose corn syrup, it is difficult to avoid, so the challenge is finding those foods with low fructose and still maintain a healthy nutritional balance that patients will adhere to, especially teenagers," Dr. Lustig said in a press statement. "But the good news is that over half of patients who are fructose intolerant and are able to maintain a low fructose diet will notice an immediate improvement in their symptoms."

Some parents use pharmaceuticals to abuse their children

(www.Borganic.org) At least 160 children are hurt every year because an adult deliberately doses them with a pharmaceutical or illicit drug, including alcohol, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center and published in the Journal of Pediatrics.

"We believe that the malicious use of pharmaceuticals may be an under-recognized form or component of child maltreatment," lead researcher Shan Yin said.

Researchers analyzed more than 21.4 million calls made to the National Poison Data System between 2000 and 2008, finding 1,439 cases of children who had been "maliciously" exposed to drugs including antidepressants, sedatives, blood pressure drugs and over-the-counter cold and cough medicine. Among the fatalities were a four-year-old girl given a full bottle of decongestants by a baby sitter, and a five-year-old girl given antidepressants and muscle relaxants by her mother.

Not all the poisonings reported were malicious, and not all malicious poisonings were reported, Yin noted.

"There's a very wide spectrum, from frank homicides to people who are not trying to hurt their children," he said. "Maybe they want them to go to sleep for an hour so they can go to sleep or go shopping."

He cautioned against ever giving children drugs for non-medical purposes.

"I personally know friends who have given children Benadryl on a plane," he said. "But any time you give a child a non-prescribed medication, you run the risk of harming the child."

Drugs' absence of external effects may make them appealing to abusers. For this reason, Yin is calling for comprehensive drug screening for all children in emergency rooms with suspicious injuries.

Child abuse is only one facet of the United States' wider problem with prescription drugs.

"There is currently a nationwide epidemic of prescription drug abuse in this country," says Julian Whitaker of the Whitaker Wellness Institute, quoted in the book Side Effects.

"In a report by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, it was revealed that this type of drug abuse had nearly doubled from 7.8 million to 15.1 million from the years 1992 to 2003."

Aspartame causes premature births

(www.Borganic.org) Regular consumption of artificial sweeteners by pregnant women may increase their risk of premature birth, according to a study funded by the European Union and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Researchers interviewed almost 60,000 pregnant Danish women about their soft-drink consumption, then compared these data with the results of the women's births. They found that drinking one can of diet soda per day increased her risk of giving birth prematurely by 38 percent compared with women who never drank diet soda. Drinking four or more of the beverages per day increased the risk of preterm birth by 78 percent.

A preterm birth is defined as taking place before the 38th week of pregnancy.

No connection was found between sugared soda consumption and premature birth, suggesting that artificial sweeteners may be playing a role in the effect. The researchers suggested that premature births may be triggered in part by the neurotoxin methanol, which is generated by some artificial sweeteners. Sweeteners may also generate formaldehyde, another known toxin.

Prior studies have also shown that the artificial sweetener saccharin builds up in the placenta.

"I would think it is prudent for pregnant women to diminish consumption of these drinks and possibly those foods containing artificial sweeteners," said Erik Millstone of the University of Sussex.

Mary Ellen Sherry of the University of Tennessee Medical Center was cautious about the results, noting, "There are a lot of risk factors for prematurity. Poor nutritional health is one. Underweight is one."

She urged women to start taking care of their bodies and eating a balanced diet even before becoming pregnant, if possible, making sure to get plenty of protein, calcium and folic acid.

As for diet soft drinks, she pointed out that they provide no nutritional benefit to your diet, so you lose nothing by giving them up.

"If you are afraid of it, don't do it," she said. "That's one thing that's easy to give up, diet drinks."

Alzheimer's Disease

(www.Borganic.org) People with bigger heads may suffer less from Alzheimer's than people with smaller heads, according to a study conducted by researchers from Munich University and published in the journal Neurology.

"Improving prenatal and early life conditions could significantly increase brain reserve, which could have an impact on the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease or the severity of symptoms of the disease," lead researcher Robert Perneczky said.

The researchers recruited 270 Alzheimer's patients from specialty clinics and research registries in Canada, Germany, Greece and the United States. Each participant underwent a head measurement, a brain scan and tests of memory and cognitive function.

The researchers found that participants with larger heads performed significantly better on tests of memory and cognitive function than participants with smaller heads, even after controlling for the amount of brain-cell death as measured by the brain scan. For every 1 percent of brain cell death, having a head one centimeter bigger was associated with a 6 percent increase on cognitive tests.

The researchers suspect that a larger head may correlate with a larger brain, meaning that the brain has a greater buffer against cell death. And while head size may seem to be beyond a person's control, it is not beyond their parents' control -- proper health and nutrition during fetal development and the first few years of life is critical for helping the brain reach its full capacity.

"These findings add weight to the theory of brain reserve, or individual capacity to withstand changes in the brain," Perneczky said. "Our findings also underline the importance of optimal brain development early in life, since the brain reaches 93 percent of its final size at age six."

Simon Ridley, head of the Alzheimer's Research Trust, cautioned against reading too much into the results but welcomed the researchers' recommendations.

"The researchers have also posed the idea that nutrition, injury or infection in early life can have an impact on brain reserve, suggesting that we should look after our brain from day one," Ridley said.

Rickets among ethnic groups due to vitamin D deficiency

(www.Borganic.org) Rickets, a disease formerly considered vanquished in most of the world, is now undergoing a resurgence, doctors are warning.

Rickets is a childhood disease caused by deficiency in vitamin D, which is essential for healthy bone growth and maintenance. In children, deficiency can produce stunted growth, ill-health and softened bones leading to bowed legs and other deformities. The disease was common in northern Europe during the Victorian era, but was largely vanquished when vitamin D supplementation began in the mid-twentieth century.

Now the disease has returned across England and other northern countries, particularly among people of African and Asian descent, whose darker skin protects them from the damaging effects of too much sunlight but also is less efficient at producing vitamin D. In addition, people from many such communities also traditionally wear more covering clothing, blocking even more sunlight.

"We thought that this was a disease that had been eradicated," said consultant pediatrician Sudhir Sethi, "but now I frequently see small children walking into my office with bowed legs and sometimes older children coming to me to complain of severe aches and pains. It's very frustrating because the disorder is entirely preventable."

According to figures from the Leicester Royal Infirmary, more than 200 children are treated for rickets every year at that hospital alone. But according to rickets expert James Greening, the true numbers are probably even higher.

"Only the very extreme cases of rickets in the area are referred to me," he said, "as most of the cases are seen by local general practitioners and pediatricians."

'There is a great deal of anecdotal evidence to suggest that this is a growing problem, especially within the Asian and ethnic minority communities," Sethi agreed. "I am really shocked and saddened by the worrying trend we are seeing."

The BBC recounts the story of Rommi Rifibakhit, who was diagnosed with rickets at the age of two when his parents became worried about his slow development and other symptoms.

"He hadn't started walking or even crawling," his father Osman said. "He wasn't very active and he would just sit very quietly in one place.

"We also noticed that his wrists had started widening and eventually we took him to the doctors. We were shocked and really worried when we found out that he had rickets - we didn't even know what it was."

Although rickets is easy to cure with vitamin D supplementation, its physical and psychological effects can be long-term, doctors warn.

"Even once the child has been diagnosed, it can take a good few years for the legs to straighten," Sethi said. "This can have a significant impact on the early years of a child's life."

"There was a little boy that came to my clinic with bow legs and his mother told me that she had stopped taking him to any public gatherings," he said. "And, whenever she took him out she would dress him in very loose clothing so no one could see his legs. This is very sad that parents often feel ashamed that their child has developed the disorder and try to hide it."

Aware of the growing rickets problem, the U.K. Department of Health issued guidelines two years ago urging all pregnant and breastfeeding women to take a daily vitamin D supplement. Minoo Irani, a pediatrician specializing in rickets, goes even farther, suggesting that all dark-skinned pregnant women be screened for deficiency.

"If women have low levels of vitamin D then their baby can also be born with a deficiency," he said, "which can put it at risk of developing rickets. All women from a high-risk background, who are thinking of getting pregnant, should be tested and, if they are found to be deficient, then they can be adequately treated."
