Not far away in some aspects from the James Bond Film, 'Tomorrow Never Dies'
A lovely lady talking about life and it feels real.
The crier rings a bell and has scroll of items he (lately she) wishes to bring to you attention, sometimes in the evening they carry an old fashion torch and used to light the gas or oil street lamps. So here is a Oh Yea to you dear readers, best wishes and greetings and thank you for reading and sporting these Posts.
Not far away in some aspects from the James Bond Film, 'Tomorrow Never Dies'
Once again we have to question what is reality. With digital technology and modern satellites and all, so called reality can be 'bent', 'distorted'. It is like we are all bombarded and brain washed, programmed and manipulated and we can say 'oh no not me' I know who I am, yet most are asleep. Watch RT.COM , AL JAZEERA and a few others, then watch ITV, BBC and other mainstream media. That is why the governments are seeking to suppress he internet and so on. If you really find out the truth behind the scenes----who do you trust to get your news? It's like when you strip yourself of beliefs, programmes and cultural crap--- who are you? You'll be surprised when you find out.
Please read this as it can answer a lot of queries including Princess Diane.

People suffering from life-crippling, chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes cope far better if they take up meditation, a new study has found.
Mindfulness meditation, as practised by Buddhists, allows patients to manage their problem far better.
After a six-week course of meditation, patients were sleeping better, more relaxed, and were worrying less about their health, a University of Manchester study has found.
The researchers tested the meditation technique on 40 patients, who all had at least five sessions during the six weeks.
Long-term effects—or benefits of longer-term meditation—weren’t assessed.
Hospitals are much more dangerous places at the weekend. You’re more likely to die in hospital if you’re admitted on a Saturday or Sunday than if you’d come in on a weekday.
It’s a problem experienced by hospitals all around the world as senior staff take the weekend off, leaving the junior doctors in charge.
A major study involving more than 55 million patients in hospitals in many countries has discovered that the patient admitted at the weekend is up to 17 per cent more likely to die.
Researchers from Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan said that the alarming difference could either be because standard of care fell at the weekends, or that patients who were severely ill were more likely to be admitted then.
But as the pattern is similar around the world, the researchers concluded that the level of care was the obvious reason.

The UK’s National Health Service is so unsafe that “planes would be falling out of the sky all the time” if it were an airline, a chief investigator has said.
Robert Francis, QC, who is chairman of the inquiry into the Mid-Staffs hospital scandal, said the public has been given a rosy impression about the level of care provided in hospitals that the facts don’t support.
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Mr Francis blamed the problem on complacency within management teams running the hospital trusts. “If we ran our airline industry on the same basis, planes would be falling out of the sky all the time,” he said.
Getting access to records has been difficult, and without knowing the true situation, the public has a rosier picture about the quality of care in our hospitals, he said.
Since the Francis inquiry was instigated last year, 14 NHS hospital trusts have been investigated over high death rates, and health secretary Jeremy Hunt has said it was “utterly shocking” that were 12,500 deaths every year in UK hospitals as the result of a blunder by staff.

Not all chemical drugs are useless. They do in some cases save lives, relieve pain and so on. However they do have side effects. If the truth about their research were fully transparent if would not be so bad. Here below is an example.
The UK’s Serious Fraud Office is investigating the ‘commercial practices’ of drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
Investigators have confirmed that it has started a criminal investigation, but has not given any details other than to suggest that the source was a whistleblower. “Whistleblowers are valuable sources of information to the SFO in its cases,” a statement says.
GSK staff are already under investigation of bribing government and hospital officials in China, and similar investigations are also underway in Poland and Iraq. Polish whistleblower Jarek Wisniewiski, a former GSK sales rep, claimed last April that the company had paid doctors to promote its asthma drug, Seretide.

Reducing the calories we eat can stop breast cancer from spreading. A restricted diet is as effective as hormone therapy in blocking cancer growth, especially in the most aggressive cases.
This vital insight could mean that cancer patients will not need to be given hormonal therapy to stop cancers metastasizing (spreading) and steroids to counteract the worst side effects of chemotherapy.
Women given steroids often gain an average of 10 pounds in weight in the first year, and studies have shown that sudden weight gain can make chemotherapy less effective.
But new research from Thomas Jefferson University suggests that reducing calories can stop cancers from spreading, and especially triple-negative breast cancer, one of its most aggressive forms.
However, their research has thus far been restricted to laboratory mice, although the researchers are confident that similar results would be seen in human subjects.

Last month’s WDDTY carried a feature with the headline: ‘Autism: It’s all in the gut’. This week, researchers have confirmed it. Children with gastrointestinal (GI) problems are four times more likely to suffer from autism.
Researchers from Emory University School of Medicine say that GI tests should be one of the assessments for determining autism, especially among children with poor verbal skills.
They reckon their research is the first to scientifically establish a connection between GI problems and autism.
Aside from being four times more likely to have general GI problems, children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are also three times more likely to experience constipation and diarrhea than a healthy child, and twice as likely to suffer from abdominal pains.
Doctors and parents need to be much more aware of the GI problems, and should be paying more attention to diet and food selection, the researchers say.

The attack on Andrew Wakefield and his colleagues – the doctors who suggested a link between autism and the MMR vaccine – was a witch-hunt by medicine’s ruling body, the General Medical Council (GMC), as the UK’s own High Court has established. It has called on the GMC to get its house in order after it wrongfully struck off one of Wakefield’s researchers.
Prof John Walker-Smith, who was part of Wakefield’s research team that first suggested a connection between the vaccine and autism, was struck off by the GMC in 2010, along with Wakefield and another researcher.
But the decision was wrong, says the High Court which has overturned the decision, allowing Prof Walker-Smith to resume practice. Appeal court judge Mr Justice Mitting has called for changes in the way the GMC’s panel hearings are conducted. The panel had displayed “inadequate and superficial reasoning, and, in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion,” he said. In other words, Walker-Smith had been found guilty by association – and even being in any way connected to Wakefield was sufficient evidence to have him struck off.

Fasting for just two days can kick-start the immune system—and could reverse auto-immune conditions such as arthritis, and help cancer patients on chemotherapy, a new study has discovered.
Going without food for two to four days kills older and damaged immune cells and generates new ones. At the beginning of a fast, white blood cells are killed off before a ‘regenerative switch’ is flipped on, which changes the signalling pathways of stem cells responsible for the generation of blood and immune systems.
Fasting could be an important strategy for anyone with immune system deficiencies, including auto-immune disorders such as arthritis, and could also help cancer patients tolerate chemotherapy, say researchers from the University of Southern California’s Davis School of Gerontology.
The researchers were astonished by the health benefits of fasting, which they measured in two-,three- and four-day fasts. They suspect that fasting could benefit all the body’s organs and not just the immune system.

You’re just as likely to suffer a fatal heart attack when your arteries aren’t blocked, a major new study has found—so putting a question-mark over the cholesterol/blocked artery theory of heart disease.
People with clear arteries where blood is flowing freely still face a 44 per cent increased risk of a major heart attack, and one that could even be fatal.
Their risk was similar to people whose arteries were obstructed by LDL cholesterol, say researchers from the University of Colorado’s School of Medicine.
They tracked 40,872 older people who had their heart and arteries checked by angiogram, and were categorised either as normal, non-obstructive CAD (coronary artery disease) and obstructive CAD.
Yet, within a year, the rate of heart attack and death was similar in both the CAD groups, so the obstruction of arteries was only one factor, the researchers say.
The message seems to be that people with non-obstructive CAD shouldn’t be complacent; they should give up smoking if they are smokers, eat healthy diets, exercise and lose weight.

US Radiation levels rising----YOU SHOULD READ THIS---ITS A DISASTER.
A Great Idea-----this is what I feel is getting back to our 'genetic' reset.
I know monks and native peoples have this cycle. I love it and tried it a lot. I do my own thing, I skip breakfast and do the 5 rites first, early, have hot lemon drink afterwards, then a shake with barley green and a special mixture of fermented foods in the shake. A small salad for lunch and in the evening just some shakes, perhaps some nuts.
Then next day a protein shake after lemon drink. Lunchtime a salad with humus, dinner some beans with salad. Maybe at times some chicken or fish. I do have a carb binge and feast every 7th or 9th day. This seems to be OK for me. I find my hunger less and less and I feel full, not bloated and mentally more alert. I have lost a small amount of weight. I am approaching my 76th year.
We all have a different take on food, I would hasten to add there is no right way. I feel that processed food and for me to many carbs are not helpful, neither are GMO foods.
Many studies have been done years back and it was found that eating organically grown food on your doorstep or locality was OK. When I say organically, when I was a youngster there was no such thing as organic, it was organic or grown or fed on nature.
Then there is the plethora of diets, fads, scientific findings, low calorie, low fat, then saturated fat, vegan, vegetarian, mono diet, all contending with one another, very confusing.
In Switzerland it was found in the valley's they ate lots of dairy, beef and lamb. In the Scottish Isles they had lots of oats and fish, in Tibet and some high regions hardly any veg or fruit. In some Pacific Islands they were vegetarians and so on. Many of these ate local products and they were healthy and so ----another worth mentioning--- the Inuit.
Of course with world travel by sea and air, imported foods are abundant in supermarkets and immigrants who open up their shops import their foods from their native country, plus the rise in world population.
It is difficult for the 'native to eat local food' because many foods are not grown any more, and if they are they are sprayed,GMO, preservatives, colourises, dyes and much more, these additives preserve the commodities whilst in travel or locally to cut costs and make a living competing with imported food and the cheap labour which goes with it.
There are some better supermarkets that are trying to source their products locally. They are slightly more expensive, however, me on a meagre budget and reduced intake I can save and make better purchases. So in a way having less disposable income helps dispose of some weight and snacking.(excuse pun on dispose.
So dear reader eat well and Be Well. Geoff
