High Levels of Vitamin D May Be Harmful
This study suggests that Vitamin D levels of 100 nmol/litre and higher may increase mortality. This value is lower than what has been found to be beneficial for: avoiding a lot of cancers, breast feeding mothers, etc. Let's hope more data/research will shed light on the issue.

The level of vitamin D in our blood should neither be too high nor to low. Scientists have now shown that there is a connection between high levels of vitamin D and cardiovascular deaths.

Food Quality: Reducing The Antibiotics In Food
Despite the Anti-Organic efforts, it looks like businesses are beginning to take note and are tidying up the food chain. They have no option if people vote with their wallets.

Excellent Video On Sony's Low Noise Audiophile SDXC Memory Card

Sounds more like a scam to me. Selling ice to Icelanders for 5 times the price of what you will have to pay for it in the Sahara Desert.

'Action On Sugar' Say High Sugar Drinks Should Not Be Sold To Children
'Action On Sugar' is worried that drinks advertised to children as healthy and performance enhancing is setting them up for obesity and diabetes later in life. Some of the drinks had some much as 20 teaspoons of sugar per 500ml, over three times the FAO recommended daily added sugar intake for adults.

Solar Everywhere, Yet Facing Electricity Shortages
"The Energy Commission says it has plans to... " We have been planning for a very loooong time, too long!
We have some of the best solar resources. Solar panels are now adequately priced for us to use this resource.

Correct, I am not looking at replacing the current infrastructure with solar, just complementing. If we had 1000 MW solar for 8 hours each day into the grid, our current predicament will be over. Add wind and biomass and we will have more than enough to complement our thermal and hydro facilities. We have enough installed capacity but no fuel, neither water nor hydro-carbons.

Breastfeeding Linked To Higher IQ
A few decades ago, the Fat-Phobia industry tried to offer us a more 'Healthy, Low Fat' breast milk alternative. Nature's offer is just fine, indeed, PERFECT!.

Breastfeeding is the Best! Nothing could be better for a baby than their mothers own nutrient rich milk.

Higher Testosterone could prevent heart and diabetes deaths
A research team at the Endocrine Society's annual meeting reports that boosting men's testosterone could prevent heart and diabetes deaths.
Except that we need cholesterol to produce more testosterone, are they going to say the obvious? Not to aggressively lower our cholesterol?

Vascular Surgeon: Why I’ve Ditched Statins for Good

Popular doctors in the UK who go against the mainstream medical system have found willing publishers in the mainstream media in recent days, to publish the other side of the “statin wonder drug” hype.

Replacing Our Foods With Industrial Chemicals
Gradually the chemical industry is replacing our food with industrial chemicals and we cannot tell no matter how diligent we are. Using 'Clean Label' techniques, ingredients are replaced with ones which can be called names that will make you less suspicious. Examples: Rosemary extract for BHA or BHT. Yeast extract for glutamate. Chemicals which extend vegetables shelf life by as much as 21 days are not listed because they are considered as processing aid, not an ingredient.

Think you eat only healthy, unprocessed foods? Think again. Joanna Blythman went undercover and discovered that even your fruit salad is not what it seems

Ghana's Electricity Shortage Not Due To Mobile Phones
Some are blaming the shortage of Electric Power in Ghana on mobile phones. This couldn't be further from the truth. We use less than a thousandth of the available power to charge our phones. Let's put the emphasis where it's due.

Using the figures given in this article, which are certainly exaggerated, we have:
27,000,000 phones
2 AHr Average Battery Capacity, on the high side.
54 MWHr Total Electricity Consumed per day.
2.25 MW Daily Average Power Required to provide consumption.

Considering that Ghana's installed capacity is about 2,500 MW, less than one in 1000 is used for charging phones, even using the exaggerated figures of phone population and battery capacity.
