WHO: Cell phone use can increase possible cancer risk
Cell phone use 'possibly carcinogenic' NEW: Experts say there are ways to minimize cell phone radiation It's in the same "hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroformUntil now, WHO has said no adverse health effects have been establishedThe cell phone industry maintains that there is no conclusive evidence of danger (CNN) -- Radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization. The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform. Before its announcement Tuesday, WHO had assured consumers that no adverse health effects had been established. A team of 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States, made the decision after reviewing peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety. "The biggest problem we have is that we know most environmental factors take several decades of exposure before we really see the consequences," said Dr. Is your cell phone safe?

A Scary Side Effect of Eating GMO Foods | Natural Health News | Natural Health Resources | Live in the Now by While the long term health consequences of consuming genetically modified foods are not yet known, scientists do know one thing. Consuming genetically modified plant DNA leads to the development of “GMO” microorganisms, which reproduce continuously inside the human body. And as the Alliance for Natural Health reports, the implications could be deadly. It’s time to tell the USDA we won’t stand for more GMOs! This article is republished with permission from the Alliance for Natural Health USA, May 31, 2011. GE organisms actually become part of the bacteria in our digestive tracts and reproduce continuously inside us. There are no human clinical trials of genetically engineered foods. As the Institute for Responsible Technology has noted, the genetic engineering process creates massive collateral damage, causing mutations in hundreds or thousands of locations throughout the plant’s DNA. And we’ve seen cross-species transfer of DNA happen before. Please take action today!

Metaphysical Causes of Disease and Illness - mind body link Throughout this site I have emphasised that failure to deal with spiritual,emotional,mental or physical issues is likely to result in the manifestation of illness or dis-ease in the body. Deep down most of us know that there is a link between how how we live our lives and our health. Many spiritual groups and individual teachers have used their experience to help catogrise the relationship between metaphysical issues and how they may manifest in the body. Perhaps the seminal work in this area was the book "Heal Your Body" by Louise Hay which lists all the common illnesses and diseases and suggest the possible metaphysical cause. If you have an interest in this linkage you can buy "Heal Your Body" by Louise Hay here or her best selling "You can Heal Your Life" which includes this list in the back. Our minds and our bodies are linked. It is important however to remember that illness, disease and death are all part of life.

Natural Tooth Cure for Curing Cavities and Preventing Root Canals (NaturalNews) It is not true that conventional dental treatments and fluoride are the only ways to heal your teeth from cavities. When struck with the diagnoses of a dental cavity, most people feel totally helpless or powerless to do anything about it themselves. The common belief about tooth decay is that once you have a cavity, the tooth cavity cannot heal or reverse. The only solution seems to be to rush off to the dentist and have a synthetic material placed in your teeth to cover the breached tooth structure. No longer should we continue to accept dental surgery or the dangerous chemical, fluoride, as our only hope and solution for tooth decay. People go to dentists for regular check-ups, or because they have tooth pain or gum swelling. Or is it? I began investigating tooth decay, and health in general, because my own daughter was afflicted with tooth decay at the age of one. I knew that the current theory was wrong because it did not explain my daughter's tooth decay.

Guest Post: A Doctor on Transvaginal Ultrasounds A friend of mine is a physician who wants to speak about transvaginal ultrasounds but whose position makes it precarious to speak publicly about it. So I’m letting this doctor borrow my site for an entry to speak anonymously on the matter. Obviously, I will vouch for the doctor being a doctor and being qualified to speak on the subject. Update, 9:14pm: This post is being linked to far and wide, so we’re getting lots of new readers and commenters. It’s important that before you comment you read the site disclaimer and comment policy. Update: 12:13am, 3/21: I’m going to bed, so I turned off the comments for the night. Update: 1pm, 3/21: As a head’s up to people, at 8pm eastern time tonight, I will turning off the comments for this thread permanently. Update: 8pm, 3/21: Comment thread is now closed. Right. I’m speaking, of course, about the required-transvaginal-ultrasound thing that seems to be the flavor-of-the-month in politics. I do not care what your personal politics are.

Are You Cannabis Deficient? | Medicine Hunter If the idea of having a marijuana deficiency sounds laughable to you, a growing body of science points at exactly such a possibility. Scientists have known that the active psychoactive compound in marijuana is THC, which is short for tetrahydrocannabinol. In August 1990, researchers reported in the journal Nature the discovery of receptors in the brain that specifically accommodate the cannabinoids in pot. Cannabinoids bind to particular neurological sites in the brain, as though the brain was specifically designed to utilize this plant. Did nature toss cannabinoid receptors into the brain by random chance? Are cannabinoid receptors part of an intelligent design for deriving maximum benefit from cannabis? In that vein, in 1992 researchers in Israel isolated the cannabinoid anandamide in the human brain. Ever since the pioneering work of Dr. Anandamide also plays a role in proper appetite, feelings of pleasure and well-being, and memory. By Chris Kilham, for Fox News Health

The hand The hands are a notorious source of frustration. This section won't concentrate on the muscle structure, since the hand is very complex in this regard, and knowing this won't help much in drawing them. Instead, we'll look at proportions, range of motion, and possible simplifications. Structure and proportions Figure 2.20. There is a very easy and surprisingly accurate way to remember the proportions of an adult's hand. The palm of the hand houses the metacarpal bones. The palm of the hand can be simplified to a box. Figure 2.21. Notice that the box does not line up with the contour of the fingers. The two black arrows in the previous figure show how the little finger can move up and down. Figure 2.22. Take a look at some examples of how to use this model: Figure 2.23. The first one is a relaxed pose. This is certainly not the only way to draw a hand.

Big Study: Vaccinated Kids 2-5 More Diseases Than Unvaccinated Preventable Vaccine-induced Diseases A German study released in September 2011 of about 8000 UNVACCINATED children, newborn to 19 years, show vaccinated children have at least 2 to 5 times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children. The results are presented in the bar chart below; the complete data and study results are here. The data is compared to the national German KIGGS health study of the children in the general population. Most of the respondents to the survey were from the U.S. The data was collected from parents with vaccine-free children via an internet questionnaire by and Andreas Bachmair, a German classical homeopathic practitioner. No study of health outcomes of vaccinated people versus unvaccinated has ever been conducted in the U.S. by CDC or any other agency in the 50 years or more of an accelerating schedule of vaccinations (now over 50 doses of 14 vaccines given before kindergarten, 26 doses in the first year). Salzburger Study Result: Nature's lessons in healing trauma -Pet I Am a Dream of Awakening Hello, nice to meet you. I would introduce myself, but so many people call me by different names, that I’m not sure which one you would be most comfortable with. So, if we can just skip that little formality, please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. I am the Alpha and the Omega. Of course, consciousness can be infinite, but dreams never are. Through the creation of this dream, I explore myself endlessly. Overall, this is a dream of departure, adventure, and return. The self-aware portions of myself forever venture out into the dreaming like little periscopes of consciousness, and these sparks of myself also forever return to me. In some of my more edgy adventures, I actually choose to make an agreement with the rest of myself that I will temporarily experience almost a complete lack of knowledge of who I am. So while I’m doing this, I create all sorts of games with myself. Then begins the journey Home. Have fun, kids! Like this: Like Loading...

Gut Feelings Have you ever had a "gut feeling" about something that's later turned out to be true? Have you ever felt "open-hearted"? Ever encountered a situation that's made you "hot under the collar"? Or a person who is "a pain in the neck"? Knowledge of the Chakras is most comprehensively found in the ancient Eastern science of yoga. So what has this got to do with "gut feelings"? The third centre in our subtle system is called "nabhi" or "Manipur" chakra. Often that “Gut Feeling” is us being sensitive to the state of the Nabhi chakra. Ever bought something that was a really good bargain? Similarly, have you ever thought about doing something but deep down in your belly somewhere it didn't feel like the right thing to do? The Anahatha deals with the heart, lungs and immune system. On the other side of the coin heartfelt feelings (such as the love and joy that we might experience when we meet a loved one or feel inspired by a positive happening) are the product of a healthy Anahath centre.

How to Treat Tachycardia – Home Remedies Tachycardia is an accelerated heart rate – specifically it is classified as any heart rate that exceeds 100 beats per minute at its base level which puts it above the normal range. There are many causes of tachycardia such as poor circulation, high blood pressure/cholesterol, low potassium or arrhythmia. Symptoms include a 'fluttering feeling in the chest', difficulty catching your breath, irregular heartbeat, pain in the chest and light headedness. In serious cases doctors may put you on a course of medication (adenosine), or may recommend heart surgery (cardioversion). Note: Bear in mind that the normal heart rate is faster in young children – 100 is the highest normal-range for adults over 15 years of age but up to 130 is normal for most children and not considered tachycardia. Avoid Stimulants: The last thing you want if you have an elevated heart rate are stimulants which cause your heart to pump faster still by speeding up your metabolism and releasing adrenaline.
