"Dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia and other neurological problems seem to be
associated with a deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids, especially in the womb.
The evidence of a link with depression, chronic fatigue syndrome and dementia
is less clear, but still suggestive. None of these conditions are caused
exclusively by a lack of these chemicals, or can be entirely remedied by
their application, but it's becoming pretty obvious that some of our most
persistent modern diseases are, at least in part, diseases of deficiency."

Triggering Your Body to Burn Fat

"In 30 minutes of moving around, you might burn 150 to 300 calories. But,
theoretically, it takes burning around 3,500 calories to lose one pound of
fat. So, you’re going to have to do enough workouts, at say 150 calories
burned per session, to add up to 3,500 calories, or 17,500 calories for five
pounds of fat, and so on."

At Wikipedia: Omega-3 fatty acid

"Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids found in oil from
oily fish and vegetable sources such as the seeds of chia, perilla, flax,
walnuts, purslane, lingonberry, seabuckthorn, and hemp. Omega-3 fatty
acids can also be found in the fruit of the acai palm. Omega-3 fatty acids
are classified as essential because they cannot be synthesized in the
body; they must be obtained from food."



Omega-3 Info Service: FAQ

"Is there a high, or even not so high, concentration of omega-3 in
regular tuna? I've heard albacore tuna has a lot. I eat tuna sandwiches
every day, but I'm not sure that they're albacore tuna. Does it make a
difference?


Fresh and frozen tuna are excellent sources of long chain omega-3
polyunsaturates, supplying around 5% total oil of which 20% is omega-3.
However, during the canning process, most of the oil and therefore most
of the omega-3 is lost. This is mainly because tuna is cooked before it is
canned, and during the cooking process much of the oil is separated and
lost. The meat that goes in the tin thus has a low oil content (usually less
than 1g per 100g) and a low omega-3 content (usually less than 0.4g per
100g). It matters little whether the tuna is albacore or yellowfin because
once it is canned there is little omega-3 left. Some tuna packers do can
raw tuna so that the omega-3 content is higher, but it is usually difficult to
distinguish such products from the others in the marketplace. Enquire of
the producer to be certain. These comments only apply to tuna. Other
canned fish are just as good as the raw fish as sources of long chain
omega-3 polyunsaturates."

18 Tricks to Teach Your Body

"Too much Chipwich too fast will freeze the brains of lesser men. As for
you, press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as
much as you can. "Since the nerves in the roof of your mouth get
extremely cold, your body thinks your brain is freezing, too," says
Abo. "In compensating, it overheats, causing an ice-cream headache."
The more pressure you apply to the roof of your mouth, the faster your
headache will subside."


"Poor distance vision is rarely caused by genetics, says Anne Barber, O.D.,
an optometrist in Tacoma, Washington. 'It's usually caused by near-point
stress.' In other words, staring at your computer screen for too long. So
flex your way to 20/20 vision. Every few hours during the day, close your
eyes, tense your body, take a deep breath, and, after a few seconds,
release your breath and muscles at the same time. Tightening and
releasing muscles such as the biceps and glutes can trick involuntary
muscles—like the eyes—into relaxing as well."

Live smarter & you can live older

"There’s a saying that genetics load the gun, but it’s the environment
that pulls the trigger,” says Dr. David Fein, medical director at the
Princeton Longevity Center, a clinic in Princeton, N.J., which focuses on
quality of life and prolonging it. “You can have the gene for a certain
disease, but it doesn’t mean you’re going to get it."

Bye-bye BMI? Tape may measure obesity better,
Researchers say waist-to-hip ratio may paint better picture of fitness

"Fat stored in the belly "is the most dangerous type of fat in our bodies,"
explains Dr. William Castelli, director of the Framingham Cardiovascular
Institute.

The waist-to-hip measurement is likely to catch people at risk for fat-related
diseases who might otherwise think they were at a healthy weight, based on
their BMI scores."

Exercise = Weight Loss, Except When It Doesn’t


"When you diet without exercising, you lose both muscle and fat, which is
counterproductive because muscle loss significantly lowers your basic
metabolic rate, the number of calories your body uses at rest."

"Weight-bearing activities that work against gravity — aerobic activities like
walking, running, cross-country skiing, dancing, skating and stair-climbing
— use proportionately more calories at a given level of effort than swimming,
cycling or water aerobics."

"In other words, you may lose fewer pounds than if you expended the
same number of calories on an aerobic activity like brisk walking or
swimming, but you will be stronger and better toned. With greater muscle
mass, your basic metabolic rate will rise and you will burn more calories
all day and night. And since muscle holds less water and takes up less
room than the equivalent weight of fat, by shedding fat and gaining
muscle you can lose inches and sizes without losing actual pounds on
the scale.
"

Study Provides Insight Into How the Brain Loses Plasticity of Youth

"Plasticity, the ability of functional brain circuits to change in response
to experience-dependent neuronal activity, is largely restricted to critical
periods of development. In their classic Nobel-prize winning experiments,
David Hubel and Torsten Weisel showed that visual areas of the brain are
responsive to environmental cues during a discrete period early in life,
after which they do not change."

Vitamin D 'slashes cancer risk'

Vitamin D was examined as it previously showed promise in cutting
the risk of prostate, breast and colon cancer. Except for smoking, no
environmental factors or dietary factors have been linked to the
pancreatic cancer.

Lead researcher Dr Hal Skinner said: "There is a growing body of
information indicating that achieving higher levels of vitamin D through
supplements, diet or prudent sun exposure may provide a range health
benefits by preventing common chronic diseases."

Bitter consequences

"The upshot of all this is that the complaints of children (and, indeed, of
many adults) that green vegetables are horrid contains a lot of truth.
There is no doubt that such vegetables are good for you. But they are not
unequivocally good. As is often observed in other contexts, there is no
free lunch."

TV Really Might Cause Autism

"Cornell University researchers are reporting what appears to be a
statistically significant relationship between autism rates and television
watching by children under the age of 3. The researchers studied autism
incidence in California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington state.
They found that as cable television became common in California and
Pennsylvania beginning around 1980, childhood autism rose more in the
counties that had cable than in the counties that did not."

JoS: Food: What do developers (Europe, elsewhere) eat?

Paleo diet!?

"Main premise: the genus Homo has been around for approximately two
million years (100,000 generations) and has evolved/adapted/been
selected for a certain diet. Neolithic foods, such as grains, dairy, and
legumes have only been around for 10,000 years (500 generations).
Thus, our bodies aren't really adapted to eating that stuff. Moreover, it's
precisely those foods that cause us to have all these bad diseases, such
as cancer, etc."

Slashdot: Oceans Empty By 2048?

"Already, 29% of edible fish and seafood species have declined by 90% — a drop
that means the collapse of these fisheries. But the issue isn't just having seafood
on our plates. Ocean species filter toxins from the water. They protect shorelines.
And they reduce the risks of algae blooms such as the red tide. 'A large and increasing
proportion of our population lives close to the coast; thus the loss of services such
as flood control and waste detoxification can have disastrous consequences,'
Worm and colleagues say."

webMD - Hawthorn

"Before taking hawthorn, talk with your healthcare professional if you take any
medications. It has major interactions with several prescription medications.

Hawthorn also seems to have blood pressure-lowering activity, according to
early research. It seems to cause relaxing of the blood vessels farther from
the heart. It seems that this effect is due to a component in hawthorn called
proanthocyanidin."


Medication.pdf:

Ginger - Can interfere with the clotting of your blood. Can interfere with how
heart or high blood pressure medications work.

Hawthorn - Do not take if you are taking digoxin and blood pressure
medications
