This should be a good show. We can’t bang the drum too much about Cholesterol and what a complete farse they are. As a 10 billion Dollar per year industry, statins are hard to stop and therefore the myths and pure lies about Cholesterol and mortality rates will continue for years to come no doubt.

In Sickness and in Health: Importance of Supportive Spouses in Coping With Work-Related Stress

 The growth of two-income families and increasing levels of job stress are two of the most significant work trends affecting American businesses and families in recent years. Having just one stressed-out spouse can harm couple’s work and home lives — but what about when it’s both?

See Also: Health & Medicine •Workplace Health •Staying Healthy Mind & Brain •Stress •Social Psychology Science & Society •Industrial Relations •Funding Policy Living Well Reference •Fertility •Developmental disability •Emotional detachment •Night terror A new study conducted by Wayne Hochwarter, the Jim Moran Professor of Business Administration in the Florida State University College of Business, examines the role of support in households where daily stress is common to both spouses. “Given that a lack of support from one’s spouse represents a major cause of both divorce and career derailment, this research is needed to address issues that affect both home and work,” Hochwarter said. More than 400 working couples, in both blue- and white-collar occupations, participated in Hochwarter’s research. Those who reported high levels of stress but strong spousal support — as compared to stressed-out employees without such support — experienced the following positive benefits: •50 percent higher rates of satisfaction with their marriage; •33 percent greater likelihood of having positive relationships with co-workers; •30 percent lower likelihood of experiencing guilt associated with home/family neglect; •30 percent lower likelihood of being critical of others (spouse, children) at home; •25 percent higher rates of concentration levels at work; •25 percent lower likelihood of experiencing fatigue at home after work; •25 percent higher rates of satisfaction with the amount of time spent with their children; •20 percent higher views that their careers were heading in the right direction; and •20 percent higher level of job satisfaction. The number of employees who returned to the workplace even more agitated because they were unable to generate coping support at home is particularly distressing to Hochwarter. “When you’re still angry or upset from yesterday’s stress, your workday will likely go in only one direction — down,” he said. Further, Hochwarter identified key factors distinguishing favorable from unfavorable support. “Some attempts to support your stressed-out spouse can backfire, actually making the situation much worse,” he said. Support that had a deep and far-reaching impact had several common characteristics, which included: •Awareness of one’s spouse’s daily work demands (i.e., time pressures, lack of resources, deadlines, and supervisors). •Not “forcing support.” •Understanding that communication lines are open regardless of the circumstances. •Recognizing that distancing oneself from the family or lashing out is not a practical way to foster help. In fact, it tends to bring out the worst in others — and even causes the supporting spouse to become distant and act out as well. •Being able to bring one’s spouse back to the middle — up when down in the dumps and down when overly agitated. •Not bombarding the family with complaints about minor workplace irritants. •Not trying to “one-up” one’s spouse in terms of who has had the worse day. •Not being complacent — continuing to work at it. Remaining rational and not automatically casting the spouse as the “bad guy.” •Not keeping a running tab on who is giving and who is getting. “Most important, though, was the ability for a spouse to offer support on days when he or she needs it just as much,” Hochwarter said. “In many cases, both return home from work stressed. Generating the mental and emotional resources needed to help when your own tank is empty is often difficult. Successful couples almost always kept a steady supply of support resources on reserve to be tapped on particularly demanding days.” According to one 47-year-old sales manager interviewed for the study, “I had a horrible day, and all I wanted was a home-cooked meal and some time to myself. Instead, I took my wife out to dinner and heard everything about her bad boss and how her co-workers weren’t pulling their weight. By the end of the evening, we both felt at least a little bit better.” Hochwarter also noted that the men and women differed by gender in terms of what support behaviors worked best for them. In general, wives appreciated getting “cut some slack” in terms of household activities; feeling wanted; and receiving expressions of warmth and affection. The husbands, meanwhile, were more likely to respond positively to offers of assistance with errands and feeling appreciated and needed. Both husbands and wives, however, were especially grateful for their spouse’s help in getting time away from work and home hassles to simply rest and recharge their batteries. “When stress enters any relationship, it has the potential to either bind people together or break them apart,” Hochwarter said. “Findings strongly confirm this with respect to job tension. What also became obvious was the critical role of communication and trust among spouses; without them, you have a foundation best described as crumbling, even in the best of circumstances.” Affirming that is the view of one 54-year-old administrative assistant in the study. When questioned how job stress can affect a relationship, she responded, “Ask my ex-husband.” The study is being prepared for publication.

Sell Monsanto! List of top mutual funds to ditch because they own Monsanto shares

NaturalNews) If the natural health community really wants to get serious about hitting evil corporations like Monsanto where it hurts, then it is time to start boycotting the companies that support, invest in, or otherwise have a relationship with Monsanto and its partner companies. And this includes dumping mutual fund and investment companies that hold a significant amount of shares in Monsanto.

Monsanto is a publicly-traded company, which means members of the public, including other large companies and investment firms, can buy shares in said company for investment purposes. This, of course, is one of the primary ways publicly-traded companies are able to raise needed funds and capital to keep on doing business.

While some investors make decisions on which securities to buy purely for financial reasons, others invest more consciously based on respect for a company and its products, for instance, or because they really want to see it succeed in the long-run. In either case, there are a number of investors in Monsanto that you may be interested in knowing about, if for no other reason than to pull your funds out of them because of their partnership with the world’s most evil and sinister corporation.

According to Yahoo! Finance, 83 percent of Monsanto’s shares are held by institutional and mutual fund owners. The top ten institutional holders and mutual fund holders in Monsanto as of the writing of this article are as follows:

Top Institutional Holders

The Vanguard Group, Inc. — 21,361,249 shares
State Street Corporation — 20, 096, 055 shares
T. Rowe Price — 17,442,437 shares

College Retirement Equities Fund – Stock Account — 4,045,420 shares
Mainstay Large Cap Growth Fund — 3,857,600 shares

The top five Major Direct Holders in Monsanto include Hugh Grant, the company’s chairman, president, and CEO; William U. Parfet, chairman and CEO of MPI Research, a pharmaceutical company; Brett D. Begemann, executive vice president and chief commercial officer of Monsanto; Robert T. Fraley, Monsanto’s executive vice president and chief technology officer; and Carl M. Casale, president and CEO of CHS Inc., a cooperative that supplies energy, crop nutrients, grain, livestock feed, food and food ingredients, and business solutions.

If you or any one you know holds investments in any of these companies, be sure to ditch them as soon as possible in protest of their support for Monsanto. Doing so is a practical way to get the ball rolling in bringing about real grassroots change, and ending Monsanto’s reign of agricultural terror.

Bill Gates funding climate denial group

EXTRACT: The inner workings of a libertarian thinktank working to discredit the established science on climate change have been exposed by a leak of confidential documents detailing its strategy and fundraising networks.

The papers indicate that discrediting established climate science remains a core mission of the organisation, which has received support from… corporations such as Microsoft… (see Guardian article below)

NOTE: The Heartland Institute is a right wing lobby group with Big Tobacco and Big Oil funding that campaigns for smokers’ rights and free market solutions to social and environmental problems. It also promotes GM crops.
http://www.gmwatch.org/latest-listing/1-news-items/5467 

But the Heartland Institute is most notorious for the aggressive role it has played in climate change denial. Now, recently obtained internal Heartland Institute documents have confirmed that the anti-environmental lobby group is not only backed by the Koch oil billionaires and U.S. tobacco giants, but by Bill Gates’ Microsoft.

That the company that Gates founded and still chairs is backing an institute that has as its core mission the denial of established climate science is extremely revealing in terms of Gates’ — and his heavily Monsanto-linked Gates Foundation’s — claims to be backing “science-based” innovation in the case of GM crops.

And in case anyone is in any doubt about Gates’ degree of personal involvement, Microsoft, it turns out, has been funding the Heartland Institute for years, and the funding began long before Gates stepped back from a full-time hands-on executive role at Microsoft.
http://www.powerbase.info/index.php/Heartland_Institute

Indeed, the company has a record of funding a series of other hard core anti-environmental think tanks, including the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexis_de_Tocqueville_Institution

This pattern of funding suggests the backing was strategic, yet all of these organisations have been termed “climate denial front groups”.

Leak exposes how Heartland Institute works to undermine climate science

*Libertarian thinktank keeps prominent sceptics on its payroll and relies on millions in funding from carbon industry, papers suggest

The inner workings of a libertarian thinktank working to discredit the established science on climate change have been exposed by a leak of confidential documents detailing its strategy and fundraising networks.

DeSmogBlog, which broke the story, said it had received the confidential documents from an “insider” at the Heartland Institute, which is based in Chicago. The blog monitors industry efforts to discredit climate science.

The scheme includes spending $100,000 on commissioning an alternative curriculum for schoolchildren that will cast doubt on global warming.

It was not possible to immediately verify the authenticity of the documents. “There is nothing I can tell you,” Jim Lakely, Heartland’s communications director, said in a telephone interview. “We are investigating what we have seen on the internet and we will have more to say in the morning.” Lakely made no attempt to deny the veracity of information contained in the documents.

The Heartland Institute, founded in 1984, has built a reputation over the years for providing a forum for climate change deniers. But it is especially known for hosting a series of lavish conferences of climate science doubters at expensive hotels at New York’s Time Square as well as in Washington DC.

If authentic the documents provide an intriguing glimpse at the fundraising and political priorities of one of the most powerful and vocal groups working to discredit the established science on climate change and so block any chance of policies to reduce global warming pollution.

“It’s a rare glimpse behind the wall of a key climate denial organisation,” Kert Davies, director of research for Greenpeace, said in a telephone interview. “It’s more than just a gotcha to have these documents. It shows there is a co-ordinated effort to have an alternative reality on the climate science in order to have an impact on the policy.”

The Valentine’s Day exposé of Heartland is reminscent to a certain extent of the hacking of emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit in 2009. Those documents helped sink the UN’s climate summit later that year.

In this instance, however, the Heartland documents are policy statements – not private email correspondence. Desmogblog said they came from an insider at Heartland and were not the result of a hack.

The documents posted on Desmog’s website include confidential memos of Heartland’s climate science denial strategy, its 2012 budget and fundraising plan, and minutes from a recent board meeting.

The fundraising plan suggests Heartland is hoping for a banner year, projecting it will raise $7.7m in 2012, up 70% from last year.

The papers indicate that discrediting established climate science remains a core mission of the organisation, which has received support from a network of wealthy individuals – including the Koch oil billionaires as well as corporations such as Microsoft and RJR Tobacco.

The documents confirm what environmental groups such as Greenpeace have long suspected: that Heartland itself is a major source of funding to a network of experts and bloggers who have been prominent in the campaign to discredit established science.

Heartland is anxious to retain its hold over mainstream media outlets, fretting in the documents about how Forbes magazine is publishing prominent climate scientists such as Peter Gleick. “This influential audience has usually been reliably anti-climate and it is important to keep opposing voices out,” Heartland documents warn.

But the cache raises an equal number of questions – such as the identity of an anonymous donor that has been a mainstay of Heartland. The unnamed donor, who contributed $4.6m in 2008, has since scaled back contributions. Even so, the donor’s $979,000 contribution in 2011 accounted for 20% of Heartland’s overall budget, the fundraising plan says

According to the fundraising document Heartland hopes to bump that up to $1.25m in 2012 [click for PDF].

The importance of one or two wealthy individuals to Heartland’s operations is underscored by a line in the fundraising document noting that a foundation connected to the oil billionaire Charles Koch had returned as a donor after a lengthy hiatus with a gift of $200,000 in 2011. “We expect to ramp up their level of support in 2012 and gain access to the network of philanthropists they work with,” the document said.

Heartland hopes to cash in on its vocal support for the controversial mining method known as fracking, the document suggests.

Heartland operates on a range of issues besides the environment. But discrediting the science of climate change remains a key mission. The group spends $300,000 on salaries for a team of experts working to undermine the findings of the UN climate body, the IPCC.

It plans to expand that this year by paying a former US department of energy employee to write an alternative curriculum for schoolchildren that will cast doubt on global warming. The fundraising plan notes the anonymous donor has set aside $100,000 for the project.

The documents suggest several prominent voices in the campaign to deny established climate science are recipients of Heartland funding.

They include, according to the documents, a number of contrarian climate experts. “At the moment, this funding goes primarily to Craig Idso ($11,600 per month), Fred Singer ($5,000 per month, plus expenses), Robert Carter ($1,667 per month), and a number of other individuals, but we will consider expanding it, if funding can be found,” the documents say.

Heartland also hopes to expand that network in 2012 by raising around $90,000 for a project on temperature stations by the well-known blogger Anthony Watts.

Whether these funding arrangements actually exist cannot be verified. However, Heartland’s website notes that Idso, Singer, and Carter were commissioned to write a report for the organisation.

The strategy memo as published by DeSmogBlog mentions “cultivating” as a potential ally Andrew Revkin, a respected journalist who enjoys a huge following at the New York Times DothEarth blog.

Cellular Aging Increases Risk of Heart Attack and Early Death

Cellular Aging Increases Risk of Heart Attack and Early Death

ScienceDaily (Feb. 16, 2012) — Every cell in the body has chromosomes with so-called telomeres, which are shortened over time and also through lifestyle choices such as smoking and obesity. Researchers have long speculated that the shortening of telomeres increases the risk of heart attack and early death. Now a large-scale population study in Denmark involving nearly 20,000 people shows that there is in fact a direct link, and has also given physicians a future way to test the actual cellular health of a person.

In an ongoing study of almost 20,000 Danes, a team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen have isolated each individual’s DNA to analyse their specific telomere length — a measurement of cellular aging.

“The risk of heart attack or early death is present whether your telomeres are shortened due to lifestyle or due to high age,” says Clinical Professor of Genetic Epidemiology Borge Nordestgaard from the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. Professor Nordestgaard is also a chief physician at Copenhagen University Hospital, where he and colleagues conduct large scale studies of groups of tens of thousands of Danes over several decades.

Lifestyle can affect cellular aging

The recent “Copenhagen General Population Study” involved almost 20,000 people, some of which were followed during almost 19 years, and the conclusion was clear: If the telomere length was short, the risk of heart attack and early death was increased by 50 and 25 per cent, respectively.

“That smoking and obesity increases the risk of heart disease has been known for a while. We have now shown, as has been speculated, that the increased risk is directly related to the shortening of the protective telomeres — so you can say that smoking and obesity ages the body on a cellular level, just as surely as the passing of time,” says Borge Nordestgaard.

One in four Danes has short telomeres

The study also revealed that one in four Danes has telomeres with such short length that not only will they statistically die before their time, but their risk of heart attack is also increased by almost 50 per cent.

“Future studies will have to reveal the actual molecular mechanism by which the short telomere length causes heart attacks,” says Borge Nordestgaard, and asks, “Does one cause the other or is the telomere length and the coronary event both indicative of a third — yet unknown — mechanism?”

Another possible prospect of the study is that general practitioners could conduct simple blood tests to reveal a person’s telomere length and thereby the cellular wear and

Sulfur in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables may hold the key to healing genetic diseases

NaturalNews) Our mothers were right. Broccoli is good for us, but possibly in ways our mothers never knew. Health practitioners and fitness experts around the world have heralded the benefits of broccoli for decades. Scientists have long demonstrated the antioxidant properties of broccoli. Many people know that broccoli is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, the big free radical scavenger vitamins. However, a brand new clinical study was just released in January 2012 which is getting scientists excited about broccoli – and other cruciferous vegetables – again. Broccoli, and similar vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower may be able to manipulate human genes. The secret ingredient is sulfur.

Sulfur in glucosinolate induces enzyme expression and activates detoxification

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts have been shown to reduce the risk of several degenerative diseases and conditions. The benefits of a diet rich in these vegetables have been well-documented in the medical literature for cardiovascular disease and cancer. What scientists are excited about now is a unique organic compound called glucosinolate, which is made from several plant amino acids and glucose. Glucosinolate contains high amounts of sulfur and nitrogen.

In particular, the sulfur-containing part of plant cells in broccoli has been demonstrated to be an indirect antioxidant. According to a 2012 study published in Frontiers in Genetics, sulforaphane, as the compound is called, has an incredible ability to get certain enzymes to express. This is done by signaling genes in the cell nucleus. These particular enzymes activate the detoxification and antioxidant process. Over the past ten years, scientists have watched sulforaphane do this in vivo, meaning live, in humans. Sulfur heals.

Sulfur works through redox reactions and altering the cellular environment

How does sulfur work as an antioxidant and detoxifier in the human body? The molecules in sulforaphane work via a process known in biochemistry as a redox reaction. Redox is a nickname for oxidation-reduction reactions. A redox reaction is when two chemical compounds exchange electrons. One molecule gives electrons, while the other molecule receives electrons. This is the chemical reaction which occurs when an alkaline molecule gives negatively charged electrons to acidic molecules in order to neutralize the acid. While many antioxidants do this, sulforaphane also alters the epigenetic endpoints.

The field of epigenetics, the cellular environment surrounding genes, is exploding. This discovery with sulforaphane has tremendous possibilities for people with modified genetics and suggests the possibility that genetic diseases may be able to be corrected. A 2011 doctoral dissertation presented by John D. Clarke for a doctorate in molecular and cellular biology proved that a diet rich in broccoli sprouts was able to prevent prostate cancer. Dr. Terry Wahls, M.D. was able to reverse multiple sclerosis without pharmaceuticals by eating a diet high in organic sulfur-rich foods, including broccoli. Others are experiencing similar results.

Wheat Grass Profile

Wheat Grass Profile

 
 
Name : wheatgrass  

 Take a look below and what wheatgrass juice is used for in juice therapy and you will see that there must be something special about this small green shot of juice that some people organise their lives around. Wheatgrass have lots of antioxidant vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients but it also contains many amino acids and apparently over 80 enzymes. Wheatgrass juice is often called the “Liquid Sunshine” because of its very high content of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the green pigment that harnesses the sun’s energy and that allows the plant to undergo photosynthesis. The fact wheatgrass has a high concentration of chlorophyll (around 70%) may be one of its most potent attributes, but it is the combination and synergy of the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, enzymes and amino acids that provides the body a whole food that is easy to digest and assimilate and then to repair, rejuvenate, cleanse, build and re-balance health. There are some slight downsides. This juice is not easy to collect in some juicers. In fact there is a whole market purely for wheatgrass juicers and although these juicers can juice other plants, some people only ever juice wheatgrass. The second downside is that this potent juice is taken as a ‘shot’ for one reason. It is potent in every way including taste (for some people, I actually like it) so people find the best way to drink it is to ‘down it in one’. Also, it is a powerful cleanser of the body so you may feel nauseous or dizzy after taking this juice. How ever you get it……. Get it!

Watercress Profile

Watercress Profile

 
 
Name : watercress  

This is one of my all time favourite super foods. The term super food is probably over used these days but watercress really is a health promoting powerhouse. Watercress (Nasturtium officinalis) is a semi-aquatic perennial herb belonging to the family of Brassicaceae. This family of plants are well known and have been for many years for their flavour and better still, for their therapeutic values. Watercress if packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to help build and restore health. Watercress manages all this while it is a very low calorie green leafy vegetable (11 kcal per 100 g raw leaves) It is also rich in B-complex group of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin and pantothenic acid that are essential for optimum cellular metabolic functions. It is one of the excellent vegetable sources for vitamin-K; 100 g provides over 200% of daily recommended intake. Vitamin K has potential role bone health by promoting osteotrophic (bone formation and strengthening) activity as well high vitamin C content, phytochemicals such as gluconasturtiin, a glucosinolate compound that gives peppery flavour. Research studies suggest that the hydrolysis product of gluconasturtiin, 2-phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), is believed to be cancer preventing by inhibition of phase I enzymes (mono-oxygenases and cytochrome P450s). Watercress really is one of those foods you should try to eat as often as you can.

Turnips are very low calorie root vegetables; contains only 28 calories per 100 g. Fresh roots are indeed one of the vegetables rich in vitamin C; provide about 21mg or 35% of DRA of vitamin C per 100 g. Vitamin-C is a powerful water-soluble anti-oxidant required by the body for synthesis of collagen. It also helps body scavenge harmful free radicals. The potassium content is good and so is the vitamins C content. Turnips may not be the nutritional powerhouses of some fruits and vegetables but they can be a great weapon in your arsenal of beneficial juices.
