WELLNESS            
'Wellness' is important and effects every single one of us, especially as diets slim down in nourishment bust explode us in size
and ill health for various reasons.  Budgets tighten, world food supplies are challenged and pollution of all kinds is endemic as
we also enter the most worrying long term effects of
irreversible climate change . All this as big business elect themselves
owners of the very seeds to life itself and gutless politicians stand back and allow it to be so. We must take good care of
ourselves and help each other through all this.  Wellness starts today with the growing problem of cancer.
I have several close friends suffering with various forms of cancer right now and one of them is Dave himself.  Like
most of us reading this, Ive also lost numerous family and friends to cancer.

The main thrust of this new section is to help educate, inform, improve and enjoy good health and to share here what
is not being seen in main stream media.

Mind, Body and Spirit is where it all happens.

The first posting comes thanks to my friend and former British journalist, David Haith.
Colin, Thanks for your touching
thoughts.

I too felt this was a special
piece and certainly I have found
since bearing this particular
burden that it seems to have
unleashed a wave of loving
kindness towards me and
appears to have allowed others
to express their inner thoughts
and fears. Traumatic events in
our lives somehow give
everybody permission to accept
their fragility and realise that
we're all just 'passing through'.
In My Shoes: Living in the 1%
Jill Ward
     Published: April 15, 2012 Updated: April 15, 2012

What does it feel like to receive a fatal diagnosis? I believe the answer is as varied as the people who
receive one. But I've been fortunate to have known two amazing men who have served as my role
models in this process.

When my father was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer in 2004, he was stoic and seemingly
unperturbed. He tried to wrap up financial matters, but at that point in his illness, even my rocket
scientist dad could not do simple math. As quickly as I searched the Internet for a miracle cure, my
father's life drained away. I was able to take off work for a month to be by his side as he died. It was
sad and touching.

One year later, my dear friend, Richmond philanthropist Thomas Cannon, was in the hospital for
exploratory surgery. His surgeon found widely spread colon cancer and the prognosis was that he
would likely not survive more than a few weeks. After rousing from anesthesia, Tom asked about the
results of the surgery. I told him. Tom smiled broadly and slowly said, "I … can't … wait!" He had read
many books about life after death and he was looking forward to this experience. He lived seven more
weeks and died with grace and courage.

In October 2007, at age 49, I unexpectedly lost weight and found myself perpetually exhausted. Two
weeks later I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The cancer quickly metastasized to my lungs. I
thought about my father and his calm response to his diagnosis. I thought about Tom and his
optimistic attitude. I ended up somewhere in between.

Unfortunately, the facts are grim, and the five-year survival rate for my type of Stage IV pancreatic
cancer (called adenocarcinoma) is 1 percent. There are no known survivors who lived a normal life
span and died of natural causes.

My husband, Mike, and I made a pact that we would enjoy our remaining time together as much as
possible. At the time, my twin boys were 17 and my daughter was 19. I resolved to see them grow old
enough so that I knew that they would be fine to venture into the world and make their own way.
Jenna, Alec and Kyle have grown to be smart and compassionate young adults, but even now it's hard
to think of leaving them.

It's been 4½ years since my diagnosis and I am still here and still having fun. I've had nine operations
and procedures, four years of aggressive chemotherapy, and frequent discomfort and pain. But I've
also had tremendous support from close friends and family, and caring nurses and doctors.

My family and I laugh loudly and often. We take trips to the beach whenever possible. My children
have grown closer and even traveled together to China (on their own dime), making their way across
the country by themselves. My husband and I have fallen more in love than ever. We make sure to do
things that thrill us when I am able — we'll stop at a roadside fair, walk in the woods, kayak in the
ocean and truly live to enjoy life.

I believe in a loving, higher power and I believe that challenges are meant to help us grow spiritually. I
love being here on Earth, but I am not afraid to leave it. And I can tell you that the past few years have
been some of the favorite years of my life.

When things get tough, as they invariably do, I remember the reassuring words of Julian of Norwich (a
medieval religious writer): "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well."

And so it shall.

Use caution with any laptop computer use, especially if you’re a pregnant woman, and if you choose
to use it on your lap, only do so with a lap pad or cushion that is about one foot thick
You may be able to lessen EMF exposure during laptop use by using an external keyboard (as even
typing on your laptop may expose you to high EMFs) and only using it while it’s battery-powered, not
while plugged in, as the power supply from a laptop induces strong electric current densities
Separate research has also shown that laptops may be harmful to sperm, with samples exposed to a
wireless internet-connected laptop showing a significant decrease in sperm motility and an increase
in sperm DNA fragmentation
Researchers concluded your lap is an “improper site” for use of a laptop computer, and suggested
the devices be renamed so as not to “induce customers towards an improper use”
Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produced by five commonly used laptops of different brands were
found to be “considerably higher” than the values recommended by two recent guidelines for
computer monitors magnetic field emissions
New research shows spending long hours with a laptop on your lap -- the use for which it is intended
-- is likely harmful

By Dr. Mercola

Using your laptop computer on your lap is, paradoxically, not a safe way to use it.

Just as research is emerging showing that cell phones should not actually be held right next to your
head (for instance, the iPhone manual states the phone must be at least 5/8 inch away from your
body or ear for "safe operation"), research is showing that spending long hours with a laptop on your
lap -- the use for which it is intended -- is likely harmful.

6 Dangerous Pet Poisons You Probably Haven’t Thought Of
        by Xfinity Lifestyle Staff | May 2, 2012 at 1:06 PM | Pets

By Dr. Patty Khuly,
Vetstreet.com

After interviewing veterinary toxicologist Dr. John Tegzes earlier this week, I couldn’t help but ask him
one more question that I’d been dying to bring up:

It’s been my observation that plenty of poisons tend to fly beneath most owners’ radars. While
chocolate, pesticides and rat poison get prime billing, others receive short shrift from the public.
Which toxins make your list of the least respected pet poisons out there?

Here are Dr. Tegzes’ picks and thoughts:

1. Human Medication
Dr. Tegzes: “Of all the pet poisonings called into poison centers, exposure to human medications
consistently tops the list. I think this is because most people don’t believe that their dog or cat will eat
a pill
. If you’ve ever tried medicating your dog or cat yourself, you know well that they don’t like it! It
can be a very frustrating experience for the owner and stressful for the pet.

“What’s somewhat surprising is that, if your pets see you popping a pill into your mouth and you
accidentally drop it, they sometimes will race over and gobble it up before you have time to react.
More commonly, dogs will find a prescription pill bottle, which makes a nice chew toy. If the dog
happens to chew open the bottle, there are surprise treats inside.

“For some medications, even just one pill is enough to cause serious toxicity in a dog or cat.
Medications designed to lower blood glucose in Type II diabetes, as well as those used to treat high
blood pressure, can have devastating results when inadvertently eaten by dogs.”

2. Marijuana
“Dogs will eat it if they find it! Depending on the amount ingested, dogs may become very agitated
and hyperactive or, alternatively, they may become sedate. In either case, they need to be treated
by a veterinarian who can administer a medication to hasten elimination of the toxin and other
medications to counteract the adverse effects.

“The problem is that many pet owners are reluctant to tell a veterinarian that their dog got into some
marijuana. But the reality is that the veterinarian’s focus is on the welfare and health of the dog, and
getting treatment needs to be a priority.

“Even when owners are reluctant to confess to the dog’s exposure, the clinical signs that manifest
can be very revealing. The classic one observed in most dogs after marijuana ingestion is dribbling
urine.”

3. Lilies
Lilies cause almost the same disease in cats as grapes do in dogs. Any part of the flower or plant
can be toxic to cats. There are even reports of cats becoming sick and dying from walking through
pollen dropped by lilies and grooming it off their paws, or drinking water from a vase that contains
lilies. If you live with a cat, don’t ever bring lilies into your home!”

4. Grapes and Raisins
“Reports of grape and raisin toxicity in dogs first appeared in the 1990s. Since then, there have been
many confirmed cases, usually resulting in a dog’s demise. The exact toxin and mechanism of toxicity
has not yet been determined, so diagnosis relies on an owner’s history of the exposure.

“I think that many, if not most, owners are still unaware that grapes and raisins are poisonous to
dogs, partly because not every dog will get sick. And we can’t yet predict which dogs will and which
dogs won’t get sick. Bottom line: Any grape or raisin exposure in a dog requires prompt veterinary
care.”

5. Aflatoxin
“Aflatoxin is a mycotoxin that can occur in grains like corn. If corn is grown or stored in specific
temperature and humidity ranges, a mold can grow in it. The mold then produces a toxin that stays in
the kernels. Even if the mold goes away, the toxin itself may remain.

“Each year, there are
outbreaks of aflatoxicosis associated with kibbled dog foods that contain corn.
In this case, it’s not because the pet food manufacturers are doing anything wrong. Rather, it’s
because these mycotoxins can be difficult to detect. And since they can occur sporadically in a batch
of corn, they can still find their way into pet food, even if it’s properly tested before it’s used.”

6. Garlic
“Onions and garlic belong to the genus Allium. These plants share a common toxic mechanism
whereby they cause oxidative injury to cells — in particular, red blood cells. The sulfhydryl groups in
hemoglobin are oxidized by sulfoxides that are present in all parts of the plant and bulbs.

“Cats have about twice as many sulfhydryl groups per hemoglobin molecule than dogs and other
species, making them particularly sensitive to oxidative injury from Allium plants. Even a one-time
small amount of garlic is enough to impair their ability to transport oxygen to tissues, causing injury to
red blood cells that can last for months. In essence, it is a form of
anemia in cats. If chronically
exposed even to very low amounts over a long period of time, most cats will suffer signs of anemia.”

Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease.
Posted June 20, 2012

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that
tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong. As a heart
surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my
day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled "opinion makers." Bombarded with
scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart
disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.

The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely
restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease.
Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in
malpractice.

It Is Not Working!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years
ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a
paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the
consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire
economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact
we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than
ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from
heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are
affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would
accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without
inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation
that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated -- it is quite simply your body's natural defence to a foreign invader
such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body
from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins
or foods the human body was never designed to process, a condition occurs called chronic
inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that
are known to cause injury to the body? Well, smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice
willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in
polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood
vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes
and obesity.

Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet
recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple,
highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess
consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many
processed foods.

Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red
and nearly bleeding. you kept this up several times a day, every day for five years. If you could
tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse
with each repeated injury. This is a good way to visualize the inflammatory process that could be
going on in your body right now.

Regardless of where the inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. I have
peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a
brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat
create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and
appropriately with inflammation.

While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign
invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with
omega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These
foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.

How does eating a simple sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you sick?

Imagine spilling syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When
we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your
pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to drive sugar into each cell where it is stored for
energy. If the cell is full and does not need glucose, it is rejected to avoid extra sugar gumming up the
works.

When your full cells reject the extra glucose, blood sugar rises producing more insulin and the
glucose converts to stored fat.

What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar is controlled in a very narrow range.
Extra sugar molecules attach to a variety of proteins that in turn injure the blood vessel wall. This
repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level
several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood
vessels.

While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients
spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator -- inflammation in their arteries.

Let's get back to the sweet roll. That innocent looking goody not only contains sugars, it is baked in
one of many omega-6 oils such as soybean. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed
foods are manufactured with omega-6 oils for longer shelf life. While omega-6's are essential -they
are part of every cell membrane controlling what goes in and out of the cell -- they must be in the
correct balance with omega-3's.

If the balance shifts by consuming excessive omega-6, the cell membrane produces chemicals called
cytokines that directly cause inflammation.

Today's mainstream American diet has produced an extreme imbalance of these two fats. The ratio of
imbalance ranges from 15:1 to as high as 30:1 in favor of omega-6. That's a tremendous amount of
cytokines causing inflammation. In today's food environment, a 3:1 ratio would be optimal and healthy.

To make matters worse, the excess weight you are carrying from eating these foods creates
overloaded fat cells that pour out large quantities of pro-inflammatory chemicals that add to the injury
caused by having high blood sugar. The process that began with a sweet roll turns into a vicious
cycle over time that creates heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and finally, Alzheimer's
disease, as the inflammatory process continues unabated.

There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we
trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it
designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.

There is but one answer to quieting inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural
state. To build muscle, eat more protein. Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as
colorful fruits and vegetables. Cut down on or eliminate inflammation- causing omega-6 fats like corn
and soybean oil and the processed foods that are made from them.

One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of omega-6; soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use
olive oil or butter from grass-fed beef.

Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the
supposedly healthy oils labelled polyunsaturated. Forget the "science" that has been drummed into
your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent.
The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that
cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd
today.

The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods
now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it
advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an
epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.

What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to
as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding
essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries
and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.

5 Secrets to a Happy Marriage: Revealed by Divorce
                  By Sarah B. Weir, Yahoo! blogger | Love + Sex
                         Posted by Colin Andrews July 27, 2012

Secrets to a happy marriage. In 25 years of studying marriage, Dr. Terri Orbuch, research professor
at the University of Michigan and author of the new book "Finding Love Again: 6 Simple Steps to a
New and Happy Relationship," has found that some of the best relationship advice comes from people
who are actually divorced.

WATCH: Is this the Most Epic Marriage Proposal?

In 1986, Orbuch embarked on a long-term study, supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH),
which followed the relationships of 373 newlyweds. By 2012, 46% had divorced, about the same as
the national average. In interviews with Orbuch, people who had divorced or ended a serious
relationship over and over again brought up the same five issues that they would improve if they had
the chance to do it all again.

1. Money. Over the course of her research, one the biggest surprises for Orbuch was the role money
played in marital strife. “Many divorced singles say that money was the number one source of conflict
in the early years of marriage,” she tells Yahoo! Shine. She also found that, “6 out of 10 said they
would not share living expenses in their next relationship.” She recommends that each partner
evaluate their own approach to spending and saving money and discuss with their spouse early on.
She says there is no one-size-fits-all-financial plan, but couples need to determine their own rules and
adhere to them.

2. Affection. Another surprise was that men crave affection—but not necessarily sex—more than
women. “It’s counterintuitive,” says Orbuch, “but men crave feeling special and being noticed by their
wives.” She adds that men who report not getting enough nonsexual affection were twice as likely to
ask for a divorce, but the reverse was not true for women. “Women are fortunate. We get this kind of
affirmation from more people in our lives, our mothers, children, our best friends”—so women tend to
need less from husbands.  She recommends carving out time for regular cuddling, kissing, hand
holding, and saying “I love you.”

3. Blame. “When divorced couples found fault with their relationship using ‘we’ statements, they were
significantly more likely to find love than those who used ‘I’ or ‘you’ statements.” Those who found
blame in factors such as being incompatible or too young experienced less anxiety, insomnia, and
depression than those who blamed their former partner or themselves for a break-up. Examine what
went wrong in the relationship instead of assigning individual blame, suggests Orbuch, and think
about how you can resolve conflict better next time.

4. Communication. Orbuch says a trap many couples fall into is “maintenance” rather than true
communication. She suggests having a “10 minute rule” every day when you, “Talk to your partner
about something other than work, the relationship, the house, or the children.” The key is revealing
something about yourself and learning something about your spouse. “Forty-one percent of divorced
people say they would change their communication style,” says Orbuch,“and, 91% of happily married
couples say they know their partner intimately.”

5. Move on. Letting go of the past is a key to being in a happy relationship. This is true for people
who are currently married as well as those seeking love. If you are irked by thoughts of your partner’s
old boyfriend or girlfriend or of a fight that happened weeks ago, you might not be interacting in a
healthy, positive way. “That animosity prevents you from being fully present,” says Orbuch. She also
points out that people who felt neutral toward their ex were significantly more likely to find love after a
divorce. If you can’t let go of your anger, her book outlines a number of exercises including writing a
detailed letter to the person you are angry at—and burning it.

"We had an apartment in the city,
Me and Loretta liked living there.
Well, it'd been years since the kids had grown,
A life of their own left us alone.
John and Linda live in Omaha,
And Joe is somewhere on the road.
We lost Davy in the Korean war,
And I still don't know what for, don't matter anymore.

Ya' know that old trees just grow stronger,
And old rivers grow wilder ev'ry day.
Old people just grow lonesome
Waiting for someone to say, "Hello in there, hello."

Me and Loretta, we don't talk much more,
She sits and stares through the back door screen.
And all the news just repeats itself
Like some forgotten dream, that we've both seen.
Someday I'll go and call up Rudy,
We worked together at the factory.
But what could I say if he asks "What's new?"
"Nothing, what's with you? Nothing much to do."

So if you're walking down the street sometime
And spot some hollow ancient eyes,
Please don't just pass 'em by and stare
As if you didn't care, say, "Hello in there, hello."

“I will always be haunted by the memory of the ending months for my own Mum. After Dad passed
and she could no longer be taken care of at home - her worst fears, a care center. Finishing her long
life in a single small room, a single window, a single chair and just a few feet of floor space along
which she would watch those she loved leave her sight, waving goodbye in what must have felt like an
abandoned prison” – How I wish it could have been better.  

The value and appreciation felt by our lonely elders can not be measured.  Where a 'hello, how are
you today' can be the highlight of it.  Colin

legitimacy or safety of GMO crops is naïve, anti-science and irrational to the point of hysteria. But how

DOG OWNERS AND THOSE WHO CHEW TRIDENT GUM:

When my friend's dog got sick, she had no idea what could be wrong. The dog threw up
for hours before the evidence finally came up: the wrapper to a piece of Trident gum.

chocolate. . . . Full detail...
