Fertility Rates Have Now Fallen Below The Level That Replaces Our Existing Population

Fertility Rates Have Now Fallen Below The Level That Replaces Our Existing Population

You might have heard in the news recently the report by the CDC that our country’s birth rates have now fallen below the level to replace the existing population.

The reason they say is mostly environmental, for example the days are hotter and the air pollution is the worst it has ever been, just to name a couple “environmental” excuses they claim. Now, there’s no question our environment is so polluted that both humans and animals alike are constantly born with deformities and other mutations. But let’s be honest with ourselves – the environment is not the biggest culprit here!

Obviously it is the fact that more and more adults who were sick as children, which is at the highest rate now, too, then become infertile as adults; this is for both men and women.

For example, candida, endometriosis, lupus, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, PCOS, low progesterone, low testosterone and … Read the rest

Vertigo: The inner ear’s roller coaster effect

Vertigo: The inner ear’s roller coaster effect

Vertigo is an off balanced sensation that makes a person feel like they are spinning and dizzy. There are a number of reasons one might experience this. It is most commonly associated with inner ear problems because the inner ear sends signals to the brain about movement. Other causes include Meniere’s disease, which is the buildup of fluid that causes pressure in the ear. Meniere’s can also cause ringing in the ears as well as hearing loss. Another cause of vertigo is associated with BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) which is when tiny calcium particles clump up in the canals. An infection called vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis can cause inflammation in the inner ear. Other causes include migraines, stroke, tumors, medications, or head or neck injuries.

Vertigo can be triggered by changing the position of the head
that causes a spinning, swaying, or unbalanced sensation. This can lead to
headache, … Read the rest

Is eating ammonia yummy?

Is eating ammonia yummy?

A while ago there was another E.coli outbreak, this time in beef treated with ammonia (it is treated with ammonia in an attempt to kill bacteria). The same ammonia commonly found in floor cleaners can comprise up to 15% of many fast-food burgers. It is also used in the ground beef that goes into the U.S. school lunch program.

On 12/31/09, the New York Times published a report on the
lack of efficacy of ammonia treatment in killing salmonella and E.coli in beef
from South Dakota’s Beef Products, Inc. (BPI).
According to BPI’s website they are the largest processor, a euphemism for
murderer, of beef in the country. Their ammoniated product is used in frozen
hamburger, taco meats, low-fat hot dogs, beef-stick snacks, and is sold to
fast-food chains.

BPI uses low-grade beef trimmings (notoriously high in
microbial pathogens like E.coli, Salmonella, Lysteria, and Staph), spins off
the fat, then … Read the rest

Top Foods to Avoid: High Fructose Corn Syrup

Top Foods to Avoid: High Fructose Corn Syrup

High fructose corn syrup is a man-made product that is produced by
using enzymes to extract sugar from stocks of corn. This sweetener
should be avoided as it has been linked to a variety of maladies
including obesity, cardiovascular disease, blood sugar imbalances,
diabetes, fatty liver, liver failure, leaky gut syndrome, decaying
teeth, hypertension, elevated LDL / bad cholesterol levels, immune
suppression, dementia and cancer. Not to mention it can actually
damage DNA.

Big Food loves high fructose corn syrup because it is both cheaper
and sweeter than cane sugar. Highly refined cane sugar is bad enough
but high fructose corn syrup delivers a fix that rapidly enters the
blood stream causing blood sugar spikes and the quick release of
insulin. This in turn causes an increase in appetite and a trend
toward weight gain and obesity over time.

The common sugar that sits in the pantry at home is … Read the rest

NFL Star Jamal Adams on His Favorite Workouts, Becoming a Pescatarian, and More

NFL Star Jamal Adams on His Favorite Workouts, Becoming a Pescatarian, and More

Heading into his third year in the NFL, New York Jets safety Jamal Adams has already made a major impact on the league. In 2018, Adams made his first Pro Bowl, winning defensive MVP of the game, and was named second-team All-Pro after ranking third in total tackles. Not bad for a player who will be 23 years old at the start of the season.

Adams was the sixth pick in the 2017 draft, and he’s met the high expectations. Now he’s ready to take the next step for the Jets as he heads into the 2019 season.

“I’m excited for this year and the team is excited about what we can do,” Adams told Men’s Journal. “I’ve been working more and more on my speed and fundamentals, and I know I can do even better … Read the rest

Adventure Video of the Week: Slackliner Andy Lewis Base Jumps in Moab

Adventure Video of the Week: Slackliner Andy Lewis Base Jumps in Moab

Extreme sports athlete and expert slackliner Andy Lewis has had his fair share of thrills. He’s jumped, climbed, and slacklined all around the world, including during the Super Bowl halftime show with Madonna in 2012. Recently, he spent some time at Arches National Park to pull off another incredible feat.

After going on a 2.5 mile hike and rappelling 150 feet, Lewis slid down a crack before base jumping and parachuting the rest of the way down. Naturally, he caught it all on his GoPro.

Here’s a look at the base jump, plus an alternate angle:

Is the Paleo Diet All It's Cracked Up to Be? Here's What a New Study Says

Is the Paleo Diet All It's Cracked Up to Be? Here's What a New Study Says

Paleo diets are sold on two golden promises: low-carb eating and better gut health. But a new study from Australian researchers suggests that the two might not go hand in hand—cutting out the carbs might not work as advertised. Published in the European Journal of Nutrition, this study indicates that paleo participants have an abnormally high amount of Trimethylamine-N-oxide (that’s TMAO for short) in the gut, which could raise your risk of heart disease.

This new food fad, the paleolithic, paleo, or “caveman” diet, calls strictly for grass-fed meat, eggs, fish, nuts, berries, fruits, veggies, and natural sweeteners. Imagine what our early ancestors would have eaten hundreds of thousands of years ago, then remove the mammoth drives from the equation. The idea is to cut out artificial and factory-farmed foods and emphasize simple, effective nutrition.

The study followed 44 willing-and-ready paleo dieters as they adhered … Read the rest

Nike Joyride: Get the Stepping-in-Sand, Sitting-in-a-Bean-Bag Feel—But for Running

Nike Joyride: Get the Stepping-in-Sand, Sitting-in-a-Bean-Bag Feel—But for Running

Close your eyes and imagine you’re barefoot at the beach, about to step off a boardwalk into some sand. Your foot sinks in—the granules rising to hug your arch. It’s a feeling that’s all at once soft, supportive, and reactive. That’s the sensation Nike strived to mimic in their latest running shoe: Joyride.

To imitate the freewheeling feeling of that first step—because we all know walking in sand for more than two feet is anything but effortless—Nike spent three and a half years to create a new cushioning system that was universal to each shoe, but entirely personalized to each runner. They found that in TPE beads.

Now imagine what it’s like to sit in a bean-bag chair. The beads expand and move with your body to support your weight. But oftentimes they migrate, so you’re left … Read the rest
