Lifestyle: 05/18/15 “I made $1million playing video games!” (Said no child ever…) There is no profit in children
gaming. In fact, to the negative side of the ledger, children who spend over three hours a day playing video games
are more likely to be involved in physical violence, be hyperactive, and lack serious interest in school - or so says the
latest study experts that examined the effects of video games as related to the time spent playing them. The
University of Oxford re-discovered (yet again) that the time children spend playing video and on-line games is
definitely linked to behavior problems. The real story in this story is that there is absolutely NO significant factor in the
types of games played. These scientists found no link between violent vs non-violent games and real-life aggression
or a child's academic performance when compared to the amount of time spent on games. In fact, strategy and
puzzle games didn’t even bring higher grades to the children who played them vs non-playing peers yet the amount
of time spent playing them proportionately vexed the child's behavior.
Food and Nutrition: 05/19/15 So, more and more you find peanut allergies in the news and the latest study
finds a huge connection between peanuts and childhood asthma. In fact, scientists have recently declared that
peanut sensitivity reactions mimic asthma attacks including shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. As it turns
out, many children who supposedly have asthma also have an allergic sensitivity to peanuts - and almost nobody
knows it. Nearly 44% of over 1,500 children with asthma studied for peanut sensitivity had positive IgE antibodies
that indicated reactivity to peanuts. Back to the question: why do we have all these peanut allergies and
asthma/peanut connections? Uh, could it be that most nut allergies have blossomed since 1964 when Merck
introduced peanut oil and other nut oils into vaccines to hopefully extend temporary vaccine immunity against
childhood diseases? When oils are injected into the muscle via a vaccine, they are labelled offensive by the body
and fought off by the immune system. This provides a sustained release of immune system antibodies against the
offending oil - rendering the victim totally sensitive to the ingestion of the food version.
Medical Madness: 05/20/15 Here is an interesting C-section fact: Fecal samples from infants are different
between vaginal births and C-section births. The baby's gut microbiome changes according to the way they are
delivered and the C-section baby’s gut bacteria is significantly less similar to their mothers as compared to those
that deliver vaginally. Why is this so important for the infant? Gut bacteria helps shape the nutrients and vitamins
derived from both their food and breastmilk to benefit the growing baby to the max. This critical digestive process in
the infant helps produce vital essential amino acids and plays a significant role in metabolism, immunity, and also
child behavior. Of course, choosing to breastfeed also impacts the microbiome heavily - but still, C-section births
can impact the infant negatively all the way through adulthood. Did you know that the US has one of the highest C-
section rate in the world - crowding 1 out of 3 births into the medical procedure that cuts the baby out of the womb?
Medical madness at its finest…
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: 05/21/15 Castor oil - Grandma’s “kill or cure you” remedy. Castor
oil is great for treating anything from yeast infections to constipation, gastrointestinal problems, parasites, menstrual
disorders, migraines, acne, sunburn, athlete's foot, ringworm, skin abrasions, inflammation and so much more! Did
you know that castor oil has been used both internally and externally for thousands of years due to its many wonderful
health benefits? With its awesome ability to strengthen the immune system, castor oil is considered a great remedy
to treat multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, hair loss, arthritis pain, rheumatism and even AIDS.
But it just seems a bit too simple for some people to accept the fact that it might actually work. Using castor oil
packs can have a profound effect on almost any health problem and our money-driven health care system deems
that positive results do not mean success or acceptance by the medical establishment. Bottom line, castor oil
improves the function of the thymus gland, spleen, the lymph and other areas of the immune system. Fighting
cancer? Don’t skimp on the castor oil.
Daily HealthTrivia: 05/22/15 Octogenarians now have a 50% chance of developing a severe loss of
cognitive function according to the Alzheimer's Research and Prevention Foundation. What’s worse than that is the
number of Alzheimer’s cases in the U.S. is expected to triple in the next 40 years. Did you know that people over 55
who receive annual flu shots for 5 years in a row increase their risk of developing Alzheimer’s by a whopping
1,000%? Do the math before rolling up your sleeve.
