Why Do Humans Still Drink Milk?
January 28, 2013 | Nutrition | M.Torres
Perhaps because the government tells us to. Today's processed milk is far from healthy and is essentially a dead liquid, devoid of any real nutritional value. Raw milk is a step up in nutrition since it's not put through the violent heating stages of its conventional counterpart and retains the nutrient values that nature intended. However, do we really need to drink any milk of any kind from another species besides our own?

There is unfortunately a large emphasis in current vitamin D research that overstates the benefits of vitamin D supplementation on the conclusions of studies conducted on UV exposure from the sun. Such disparities in reporting have obviously increased the supplement market for this valuable nutrient, however vitamin D from sunlight exposure and supplementation may not be interchangeable in terms of effectiveness.

January 24, 2013 | Toxins | A.McCarthy
Manufacturers of plastic products, including water bottles and containers were running scared just a few years ago when an accumulation of research continued to surface regarding the toxicity of a key ingredient in plastics called Bisphenol A (BPA).

Why Using Sunscreen Leads To Mental Health Disorders and Critical Illness
January 23, 2013 | Sunlight | M.Torres
Mainstream science is absolutely addicted to demonizing the sun and blaming its beautiful rays as the primary cause of skin cancer. Despite our presence on Earth for countless millennia and the fact that people closest to the equator have the lowest incidence of skin cancer, the sun is always cast as the culprit. Worse yet is believe still fall for this nonsense, slather on the sunscreen in hopes to protect against this non-existent foe. Meanwhile, a growing body of evidence shows that blocking the sun's rays from reaching our skin dramatically influences our optimal vitamin D levels, leading to higher mortality, critical illness, mental health disorders and ironically, cancer itself.
Scientists Finally Present Evidence on Expanding DNA Strands
January 23, 2013 | DNA | M.Torres
The human genome is packed with millions of gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as “junk” but it turns out that so-called junk DNA plays critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave. Cambridge researchers have published a paper proving that four-stranded ‘quadruple helix’ DNA structures – known as G-quadruplexes – also exist within the human genome. The question is, how many DNA strands are human beings capable of possessing? Some geneticists are claiming humans will one day have 12 strands.

People With Power Perceive Wrongdoing With Less Ambiguity Than People Lacking Power
January 18, 2013 | Happiness | A.McCarthy
Most companies are ruled by a specific power structure and the only reason it works is because there are those that feel subservient and do not question those they report to. Employees are often shocked by what they think is a supervisor’s severe reaction to a subordinate’s seemingly minor transgression. The supervisors who punish them seem to be so absolutely sure that they are doing the right thing--they have a clear sense of purpose and there are no arguments to sway them. However, new research find that providing a sense of power to someone instills a black-and-white sense of right and wrong (especially wrong). Once armed with this moral clarity, powerful people then perceive wrongdoing with much less ambiguity than people lacking this power, and punish apparent wrong-doers with more severity than people without power would.

Low Salt Diets Do Not Decrease Blood Pressure, Period
January 11, 2013 | Nutrition | D.Mihalovic
This myth has to end. Those of us in the natural health industry continue to be shocked at the amount of people who still believe the unsubstantiated opinions of so-called experts who demonize salt. Reducing salt is a long-standing recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) which they say is as critical to long-term health as quitting cigarettes. Really? Let me explain why, just as many other recommendations that come out of the CDC, this one is misguided and misinformed at best.

The Heroic Journey
January 7, 2013 | Consciousness | D.Hall
The kids are not alright. Neither are the adults. It's endemic and if you don't have it it's hunting you down, mercilessly--malaise, drudgery, listless purpose, addictions, fragmented identity, boredom. Boredom means the soul, the deepest part of ourselves, is bleeding. We're not supposed to be bored and because we live in sedated states (drugged on caffeine, toxins, refined foods, artificial landscapes of media and banal pop culture, and more miasmas of the matrix) we're not even aware of how revolting, how anathema it is to be bored in a world that is beautiful, majestically intriguing and a wonderland of evolving creativity by its very nature.

The coming generation of illiterate adults will be those who cannot unlearn, deschool or deprogram themselves from conventional thinking. It will be those who cannot free themselves from mainstream opinions and thought processes that require individuals to think outside the box or get rid of the box entirely.

For a Difference of Opinion - Yet Spiritual Change is Upon Us
January 3, 2013 | Consciousness | E.Dahl
For a difference of opinion, many tragedies have been committed in history, and when society looks back, it clearly sees the injustices done and justifies it by saying it would not be repeated again, for we as a people have become more enlightened. I, on the other hand, am not so sure. How will future generations view our age when those who hold the covers of deception are gone off the scene, exposing their legacy of deception?
