Israel bans fluoride

Adding to a growing global movement to acknowledge the serious health risks associated with fluoride exposure, as of August 26, 2014, the Ministry of Health in Israel lifted the mandatory requirement for water fluoridation that was put in place in 1970.  There is now a nationwide ban on water fluoridation in Israel, a decision Israeli Health Minister Yael German said “would allow Israeli parents and doctors to decide on their own whether to provide fluoride to children, in what doses, and in what manner.”

Short walks may reverse damage from prolonged sitting

Researchers at Indiana University looked at 11 non-obese, healthy men ages 20-35 who sat for three hours without moving their legs. They used a blood pressure cuff and ultrasound technology to measure femoral artery function at the beginning of the study and again at the one-, two- and three-hour marks.  Study authors found that during a 3-hour period, the function of the femoral artery was decreased by as much as 50 percent after just one hour of sitting. But study participants who walked for five minutes during each hour of sitting did not experience a drop in arterial function suggesting that the increase in muscle activity and blood flow was beneficial.

How the FDA deceives you about mercury amalgams

So-called “silver fillings” are a massive consumer fraud. Even in the 19th century, respected doctors condemned the term, noting that the term was used to conceal the mercury.  The apologists claim that it refers to the color, but when someone says “silver,” they generally mean the metal (the first definition in the dictionary of silver), not the color (the 4th or 5th definition of silver in the dictionary). The term “gold filling” assuredly is not referring to the color; it is referring to the metal.

The hidden allergen in your gluten-free foods

Ever hear of lupin? Me neither. That is, until last week, when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a warning about this legume, stating that it can cause allergic reactions ranging from a mild case of hives to full-blown anaphylaxis (yikes). The most susceptible populations: People with existing legume allergies, especially peanut allergies.  The reason this news is troublesome:  Lupin is popping up in an increasing amount of foods, thanks to the onslaught of gluten-free products (apparently it makes a great substitute for gluten-containing flours), yet people still have no idea what it is or that it may cause them harm, said Dr. Stefano Luccioli, a senior medical advisor at the FDA.

Airline crews have twice the risk of melanoma

Editorial:  Optilife-3D has discovered some good health steps that can lessen these risks below.

Airline pilots and cabin crews appear to have twice the risk of developing the skin cancer melanoma compared to the general population, a new review of past studies finds.  This higher risk may be due to the increased exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation at higher altitudes, the researchers said. “At 9000 meters [about 30,000 feet], where most commercial aircraft fly, the UV level is approximately twice that of the ground,” they said.

How standing might be the best anti-aging technique

The best anti-aging technique could be standing up, scientists believe, after discovering that spending more time on two feet protects DNA.  A study found that too much sitting down shortens telomeres, the protective caps which sit at the end of chromosomes.  Short telomeres have been linked to premature aging, disease and early death.  So spending less time on the sofa could help people live longer by preventing their DNA from aging.

CDC director: Ebola outbreak ‘is spiraling out of control’

Editorial:  Health authorities will never be able to keep up with successful treatments for all the new viruses, bacteria, parasites, etc., that are inundating our world—even America is now losing the battle.  Therefore, it is imperative that each family take emergency steps for their protection.  Proper diet, nutritional supplements, and breathing can be of help in dramatically boosting your immune system’s defenses (especially with Optilife’s guidance).  Stay tuned as we unveil more and more information in the weeks ahead.

The director for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention says that the Ebola outbreak is going to get worse.  Speaking to “CBS This Morning” following his trip to the West African countries dealing with the outbreak, Dr. Tom Frieden explained that they have to act now to try to get Ebola under control.  “It is the world’s first Ebola epidemic and it is spiraling out of control.  It’s bad now and it’s going to get worse in the very near future,” Frieden told CBS News. “There is still a window of opportunity to tamp it down, but that window is closing. We really have to act now.”

Scientists find secret of reversing bad memories

Editorial: If this new technology/therapy below becomes attainable, do you think it will be the optimal method/way to overcome unpleasant  memories?  Optilife-3D does not.  Considering that virtually every day brings anxiety and potential bad memories, nothing we do while alive (and sane) will erase ALL these events.  We believe having the optimal philosophical/spiritual perspective is the key to continual joy and contentment—regardless of what life brings.  Refer to our ‘spirit’ section for possible helps, and a guarantee at least, that we’ll provide you a simple way to consider life’s biggest questions, and how to find those answers most easily.

Bad memories of past trauma can leave people emotionally scarred for life.  But now neuroscientists believe they can erase feelings of fear or anxiety attached to stressful events, in a breakthrough which could help treat depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.  Researchers at MIT, US, have discovered which brain circuits attach emotions to memories, and crucially, how to reverse the link.
