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.

Small but Mighty: Why You Should Be Eating Sprouts

Small but Mighty: Why You Should Be Eating Sprouts

Sprouts are the kind of thing you find at a vegetarian luncheonette, or growing in the kitchen of your most health-conscious friend. Learn about their benefits and you may start growing them yourself.

The dainty vegetables boast a hefty nutrient load relative to their size—adding just a quarter cup to a meal really does make a difference. “Sprouts are essentially seeds that have gone through the germination process,” says Catherine Brennan, a Rhode Island–based dietitian. They can be the seeds of radishes, broccoli, lentils, quinoa, mung beans, alfalfa, and more. “The sprouting process can alter a seed’s chemical composition, giving it a different nutrition profile than its nongerminated counterpart,” Brennan adds.

Sprouts have a few advantages over mature plants, says Pamela Fergusson, a British Columbia–based dietitian. Sprouting can increase protein content and micronutrients like magnesium and phosphorus, … Read the rest

Healing the Gut–will new AI technology make your MD obsolete?

Healing the Gut–will new AI technology make your MD obsolete?

“So, I want to give you a sense of the
amount of data that you can get from a single sample, right? If I get stool
sample and go through the lab process and generate the data that corresponds to
that one sample, it’s several gigabytes of data. In fact, if you think about it
as the number of books that you might want to read or something, in one sample
there’s the equivalent of a public library’s worth of books.” Guru Banavar from
the Interconnected series

Imagine a world where
everything you need to know about yourself was as close as your bathroom.  Years ago, stool specimens were mostly used
for detecting occult blood, bacteria or parasites.  Artificial Intelligence data can now give you
an entire library of information about your gut microbiome from one stool
specimen—the deficiencies in nutrients, and toxicities that are causing
inflammation.

The root cause … Read the rest
