7 Ways To Prevent And Even Reverse Heart Disease With Nutrition http://b4in.org/fKeR

Considering that heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the developed world, anything that can prevent cardiac mortality, or slow or even reverse the cardiovascular disease process, should be of great interest to the general public.

Sadly, millions of folks are unaware of the extensive body of biomedical literature that exists supporting the use of natural compounds for preventing and even reversing heart disease.

Instead, they spend billions buying highly toxic cholesterol-lowering pharmaceuticals with known cardiotoxicity, among 300 other proven side effects, simply because their doctor told them to do so.

So, with this in mind, let’s look at the biomedical literature itself.

Three Natural Substances that Reduce the Risk of Heart-Related Death

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: There is a robust body of research indicating that the risk of sudden cardiac death is reduced when consuming higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Going all the way back to 2002, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study titled, “Blood levels of long-chain n-3 fatty acids and the risk of sudden death,” which found “The n-3 fatty acids found in fish are strongly associated with a reduced risk of sudden death among men without evidence of prior cardiovascular disease.” Another 2002 study, published in the journal Circulation, found that Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation reduces total mortality and sudden death in patients who have already had a heart attack.[i] For additional research, view our dataset on the topic of Omega-3 fatty acids and the reduction of cardiac mortality.

It should be noted that the best-selling cholesterol drug class known as statins may actually reduce the effectiveness of omega-3 fats at protecting the heart. This has been offered as an explanation as to why newer research seems to show that consuming omega-3 fats does not lower the risk of cardiac mortality.

Vitamin D: Levels of this essential compound have been found to be directly associated with the risk of dying from all causes. Being in the lowest 25% percent of vitamin D levels is associated with a 26% increased rate of all-cause mortality.[ii] It has been proposed that doubling global vitamin D levels could significantly reduce mortality.[iii] Research published in the journal Clinical Endocrinology in 2009 confirmed that lower vitamin D levels are associated with increased all-cause mortality but also that the effect is even more pronounced with cardiovascular mortality.[iv] This finding was confirmed the same year in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society, [v] and again in 2010 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.[vi]
Magnesium: In a world gone mad over taking inorganic calcium supplementation for invented diseases such as T-score defined “osteopenia” or “osteoporosis,” despite their well-known association with increased risk of cardiac mortality, magnesium’s role in protecting against heart disease cannot be overstressed. It is well-known that even the accelerated aging of the heart muscle experienced by those in long space flight is due to magnesium deficiency.

Metabolic Syndrome: Why this Epidemic is Sweeping America http://b4in.org/tL3b

There is an epidemic of metabolic syndrome sweeping across America. This may not mean much to the average person who doesn’t know exactly what metabolic syndrome is, but it’s a big deal.

“Metabolic syndrome is a “perfect storm” of conditions that include high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, increased levels of blood sugar, and a wider waist circumference .” [1]

Metabolic syndrome has been receiving more and more attention these days, and for very good reason. It represents systemic breakdown in the body that ought to be addressed sooner rather than later. That is, of course, if the individual is to maintain a reasonable quality of life.

Because metabolic syndrome can affect so many vital organs and/or organ systems, it’s very important to recognize its onset. It is equally important to address every aspect — both symptoms and root causes — that are practically manageable. The sooner this syndrome is addressed by way of healthy lifestyle changes, holistic healing techniques and alternative therapies, the quicker normal living can be resumed.

“More than one-third of U.S. adults have a combination of health problems collectively known as metabolic syndrome that increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes, according to new research.”

California’s growing concern: Crops raised with oil field water – ‘When I talk to growers, and they smell the oil field crap in that water, they assume the soil is taking care of this’ http://b4in.org/jKY8

Here in California's thirsty farm belt, where pumpjacks nod amid neat rows of crops, it's a proposition that seems to make sense: using treated oil field wastewater to irrigate crops.

Oil giant Chevron recycles 21 million gallons of that water each day and sells it to farmers who use it on about 45,000 acres of crops, about 10% of Kern County's farmland.

State and local officials praise the 2-decade-old program as a national model for coping with the region's water shortages. As California's four-year drought lingers and authorities scramble to conserve every drop, agricultural officials have said that more companies are seeking permits to begin similar programs. The heightened interest in recycling oil field wastewater has raised concern over the adequacy of safety measures in place to prevent contamination from toxic oil production chemicals.

Until now, government authorities have only required limited testing of recycled irrigation water, checking for naturally occurring toxins such as salts and arsenic, using decades-old monitoring standards. They haven't screened for the range of chemicals used in modern oil production.

New Data Confirms Second-Worst Year on Record for Honey Bees http://b4in.org/gKqs

This morning, federal officials released new survey data on honey bee losses from 2014-2015. The annual survey, conducted by the Bee Informed Partnership, US Department of Agriculture, and the Apiary Inspectors of America, found that 2014-2015 was the second-worst year on record for honey bees, with total losses spiking to 42.1%. Summer losses in 2014 were especially high at 27.4%, a marked increase from 2013 summer losses of 19.8%.

Emily Marquez, PhD, staff scientist at Pesticide Action Network, released the following statement:

“Pesticide corporations can’t spin their way out of the threats to our food system. The new survey released today continues to point to the real world challenges bees and beekeepers face and the unsustainable use of bee-harming pesticides, especially the widespread use of pesticide-coated seeds.

In the decade since unprecedented bee die-offs began, honey bee decline has not slowed. The science is in: pesticide exposure plays a significant role in these declines. Our food and farming system can’t sustain this level of pollinator loss year after year.

Woof: Human-dog bond may be older than we thought http://b4in.org/tL19

Dogs are known as man’s best friend, and according to a new study published Thursday in the journal Current Biology, the close-knit relationships between human and canine may date back much further than experts had previously realized.

Previous genome-based estimates had indicated that the ancestors of modern dogs diverged from wolves no earlier than 16,000 years ago, but new analysis of an ancient Taimyr wolf bone DNA dated back to 35,000 years ago has revealed that this creature is actually the most recent common ancestor of modern wolves and dogs.

“Researchers have previously assumed that the split between the dog and wolf lineages represents the point in time when domestication took place, and they have estimated the timing of this split to have happened 10,000-15,000 years ago,” Dr. Love Dalén, an associate professor at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, told redOrbit via email.

“Our analyses show that this split most likely took place between 27,000 and 40,000 years ago. So this would imply that domestication started much earlier than previously thought,” he added. “However, as we stress in the study… there is an alternative explanation for what the split between dogs and wolves represents.”

I have now received a second death threat today from radical Islam Moslem +Rashed Khan.  Google has not done a thing about this despite my flagging these posts to their attention and sending messages to them reporting the posts.

Are death threats from Islam Moslems now acceptable +Google+ material?

Introduction
Rules of my threads: I monitor my threads.  If a particular participant is insulting, crude, rude to my friends or like-minded followers, I will delete their posts.  I will also delete any incoherent or pointless/rambling posts to my threads 

This has nothing to do with "free speech" or allowing counter point. It has to do with not wasting the time of other readers.

If you have a counter point, I welcome it.  Do it with respect and with logic and your opinions are welcome.  Be a pest with off topic stuff, rude, idiotic or obscene rant and you will be deleted.

If that behavior continues, you will be blocked.

I also will unfollow others who do not monitor their own threads and allow trolls to become a nuisance.

The point here is establishing a "signal-to-noise" ratio that encourages intelligent discourse and productive conversation.
