Trophy Hunting Is Exposing The Weakest and Mentally Ill Members of Our Society
July 30, 2015 | MentalHealth | M.Torres
One of the most cowardly and selfish acts now practiced by thousands around the world is trophy hunting--the act of killing defenseless animals for pure sport and pleasure. It clearly takes a special kind of mental illness to engage in this type of activity--one who not only lacks basic empathy, but fails to see the greater consequences of their actions. Earlier this month, locals in Zimbabwe found a protected lion named Cecil shot, beheaded and skinned. After an investigation, the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has named Cecil's killer as Walter Palmer, a dentist and known big game hunter from Minnesota who is now in hiding and fearing for his life after very serious threats were made once he was exposed as the killer.

Researchers at the University of South Carolina, including James Hebert, ScD, and Philip Cavicchia, PhD, scored foods and food components thought to positively or negatively affect levels of inflammation, based on a review of peer-reviewed studies relating to diet and inflammation that were published between 1950 and 2007. Since then, research is bringing the index closer to "prime time"--ready to be used in epidemiological and clinical studies.
Learning The Telltale Signs of Drowning Could Help You Save a Life
July 29, 2015 | ChildHealth | A.McCarthy
Movies and TV shows have always portrayed a drowning victim as somebody who will splash, yell, and wave for help. However, people who swallow water and enter the phases of drowning are unable physiologically speak. After a recent young boy's near-drowning in China amidst swimmers just feet away, it's a reminder to become informed on what a drowning victim actually looks like, instead of how they're portrayed for entertainment.

Why It May Be Time To Stop Drinking Milk For Good
July 27, 2015 | JunkFood | M.Torres
At least cow's milk that is. For how many years did the milk industry get away with touting the milk mustache as the badge of good health, providing us with all the calcium and protein we'll ever need right? Today, the most informed researchers, both professional and casual know better. "Got Milk?" Not if you're a pursuer of a healthy diet.

July 27, 2015 | JunkHealthcare | E.Dahl
As a society we are living longer today than in past generations. Longevity into the 90's is now becoming commonplace in most industrialized societies. But, what is the cost--are we simply delaying degenerative diseases? If so, will the financial and quality of life have a massive impact on a system already in dire need? We know what is coming--disease is proliferating globally at a rapid pace. To those affected, it will mean hardships, but on the flip side, it is an optimal opportunity to sell sickness with corporate sponsorship--pharmaceutical companies will team with big corporations, while supported by doctors and the health care system. Selling sickness to healthy people is the next trend in health care.

The Adolescence of Humanity
July 24, 2015 | Consciousness | M.Delfino
Since 2015 arrived, I remember channeling my Pleadian friend, Izora, and wrote a past article on what she had mentioned on December 20th, 2014. She said, "In 2015, humanity will be "kneading the dough." We will be creating a new taste for our future. She mentioned we would be kneading it and getting it ready for the oven by adding our own flavors, spice, and get our fingers in it to create something very tasty. In 2016 we would be putting the dough in the oven. By 2017, we would eat the bread!"
