Updated November 11, 2017: Fukushima Equals 15,641.2 Hiroshima Bombs Today, More Tomorrow; There is No Place On Earth to Escape the Rad: The 3 melted-through cores of the destroyed reactors, now melted together into a single “corium” totaling over 600 tons, at Fukushima daily release the radioactive equivalent of 6.45 Hiroshima bombs directly into the atmosphere and the Pacific Ocean.
How US government subsidies affect what we eat
US government subsidies make processed, unhealthy foods much less expensive than healthy whole foods.
In part 2 of this program, Peter Jennings explores how agricultural subsidies have a direct connection to obesity. The food is cheap to produce and can be sold at high prices because of branding.
Politics, not what is best for the health of the US or the world, is behind the decisions that affect the food supply. That's not really a surprise to anyone who has paid attention.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 5.5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. Beginning with mild cognitive impairment – including memory loss – this form of dementia has Western medicine baffled. If only they knew more about the power of nutrition – especially how B vitamins can help reduce the risk of brain disorders.
A colossal “sea of plastic” was discovered last month in the Caribbean, with bunched-up bottles and bags stretching for miles.
It reminded one Israeli environmental entrepreneur of the polluted Haifa Bay and Kishon River — with all of its petrochemicals.
“All the plastics, they stay for hundreds of years inside the water. We are the only solution for the Caribbean that can process all the organic waste together, and you don’t have to separately sort it,” said Yuval Tamir.
Knowing appropriate dosages is important to practitioners and patients because dosages are mission critical for achieving therapeutic effects. Estimating dosages is something we all must do and the most basic thing we do that with is our water intake. What is the right amount of water (dosage) a person should drink a day? What dosage of sun? These are important questions that doctors often answer in a wrong way.
The world’s first magnetic resonance instrument (MRI) built specially for examining premature and older infants has been installed and tested on six patients at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center. The babies sleep comfortably while held in a soft brace during the scan and do not need to be anesthetized.
We live in a very appearance-conscious world, and anything you don’t like about your body or think of as an imperfection can eat away at your self-confidence. Hence, the vast popularity of so many forms of plastic surgery. Of course, with these procedures come multiple risks including anesthesia complications, scarring, and blood clots. Yet hundreds of thousands of people sign on for them every year anyway. And now there is new evidence that for one type of cosmetic surgery, you may be putting yourself in danger of a cancer diagnosis as well.
