Allergies are becoming more common. They are autoimmune diseases – a term which is applied to a whole range of diseases where the immune system breaks down and anti-bodies begin to attack the body’s own tissues. (The proper functioning of the immune system is seen as being dependent on a healthy spleen and damage to this can create long term problems)...

Along the disputed frontier between religion and science, there have always been the peacemakers looking for a way to bridge the gap, or at least to minimize the collateral damage of battle. One method for achieving this is just better cartography — a more definite line of demarcation between the two domains, and more solid agreements about staying on your own side of the fence...

Like all of the other tissues of the body, the brain becomes less resiliant with age. Free radicals,inflammation, diminishing circulation, and changes in brain chemical levels all contribute to cumulative damage to brain cells. Research is increasingly indicating that these mechanisms are critical in the development of age-related neurological changes such as declining memory and cognitive skills, increasing experiences of mental fatigue and depressive symptoms, and progressive loss of motor control. Eventually, these changes can develop into debilitating diseases including age-related dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.

A few weeks ago, I spoke by phone with Cathleen Enright, executive vice president of the Biotech Industry Organization (BIO)..
During the course of our conversation, when we touched on the subject of the science behind the debate over whether or not GMOs are “safe” (me arguing that there’s no scientific consensus) Enright said, “Then you must not believe in climate change, either.”
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The documented accounts of the damage done by Monsanto far outweighs the giant's claims.

In a brief encounter with a total stranger, I finally realized an insight that has taken me years to grasp. In a world where we long for everything new, bright, and shiny, I had come to be OK with, embrace, and even appreciated the dents, dings, and damage that life inevitably brought my way...

Alzheimer's disease accounts for more than half of all organically caused memory loss and it is the fourth leading cause of death in the aged following heart disease, cancer and stroke.

Alzheimer's causes a global loss of intellectual abilities, which is severe enough to interfere with daily functioning...
