パーキンソン病患者はじゃ香、アルツハイマー病患者はバニラ、がん患者は土のにおいがする

A former nurse who can smell the “musky odour” of Parkinson’s disease has helped scientists develop a new test that can detect the condition before symptoms appear.

People with a heightened sense of smell have reported a musky odour from patients with Parkinson’s disease, and “super smeller” Joy Milne, 68, from Scotland claims she first noticed the smell on her husband, Les, 12 years before he was diagnosed with the condition.

Milne didn’t learn of her super-smelling talents, until she attended a Parkinson’s support group with her husband and found everyone had the same distinct odour.

Milne mentioned the strange revelation to neurobiologist, Tilo Kunath, who studies Parkinson’s at Edinburgh University.

Kunath tested Milne’s skills by having her sniff a series of t-shirts worn by Parkinson’s patients and healthy people, in which she identified all confirmed cases and one other ‘healthy person’ who she said had the same scent. Eight months later that person was diagnosed with the disease.

Together with Perdita Barran, of the University of Manchester, the pair worked to identify the compounds that make up the distinctive odour and develop their non-invasive screening test for early detection. Their results were published in the journal ACS Central Science.

Barran said early detection is crucial when treating Parkinson’s disease, which can often be hindered by confusion between natural brain digresion due to aging, and the neurodegenerative disorder.

Scientists are now testing the technique on a group of people taking part in a sleep study in Austria after people with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep deprivation disorder were previously found to have a 50 percent risk of developing Parkinson’s in later life.

It’s hoped the test could help doctors diagnose and treat the disease at its earliest stage, meaning more patients could avail of experimental drugs that can protect brain cells from being eroded by the disease.

Milne, who says Alzheimer’s also has a vanilla-like smell, and cancer has an earthy odour, is now working with researchers to identify an odour associated with tuberculosis.

US jury finds Monsanto’s Roundup was a ‘substantial factor’ in causing man’s cancer

US jury finds Monsanto’s Roundup was a ‘substantial factor’ in causing man’s cancer
Monsanto/Bayer AG’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer was found to be a “substantial factor” in causing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in a California man, as the trial proceeds to its next phase to determine liability and damages.

In a landmark verdict that could affect numerous other cases, a federal jury in San Francisco found Roundup herbicide to be a significant contributing factor in causing the cancer of a man from Santa Rosa, California. During the trial, 70-year-old Edwin Hardeman alleged that his decades-long exposure to the Monsanto product had led him to develop a cancer that affects the immune system, called non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).

The trial will now proceed to the next phase where the jury is set to determine the liability and damages in the case.

Tuesday's ruling follows another pivotal verdict against Monsanto in August, where the jury awarded terminal cancer patient Dewayne Johnson a staggering $289 million in damages after ruling that the biotechnology corporation failed to properly warn users of Roundup’s health hazards.

Across the US alone, the German pharmaceutical company Bayer, which purchased Monsanto last year, is potentially facing thousands of similar lawsuits involving Roundup weed killer.

“Monsanto has placed an unsafe product on the market, has manipulated the science and manipulated public opinion and has consistently misled people into believing Roundup is safe,” Jennifer Moore, one of the plaintiff’s attorneys, said before the verdict, after the defense team claimed at the trial that the company had “bullied” researchers to suppress negative studies about the weed killer.

The Bayer legal team representing Monsanto for its part continues to argue that Roundup and its active ingredient glyphosate does not cause cancer and that it is safe to use. It also notes that regulators around the world have approved the product.

The German firm found the unanimous ruling from the six-member jury disappointing. “We are confident the evidence in phase two will show that Monsanto’s conduct has been appropriate and the company should not be liable for Mr. Hardeman’s cancer,” the company said.

Not everyone agrees with Monsanto/Bayer AG’s assessment. “Today’s verdict reinforces ...what scientists with the state of California and the World Health Organization have concluded: Glyphosate causes cancer in people,” said Environmental Working Group President Ken Cook. “As similar lawsuits mount, the evidence will grow that Roundup is not safe, and that the company has tried to cover it up.”

Mediterranean Diet Boosts Endurance Exercise Within Days, Study Finds
TEHRAN (FNA)- Researchers have found that eating a Mediterranean diet can improve athletes' endurance exercise performance after just four days.

Researchers at Saint Louis University have found that eating a Mediterranean diet can improve athletes' endurance exercise performance after just four days.

In a small study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, investigators found that participants ran a 5K six percent faster after eating a Mediterranean diet than after eating a Western diet. Researchers found no difference between the two diets in performance in anaerobic exercise tests.

The Mediterranean diet includes whole fruits and vegetables, nuts, olive oil and whole grains, and avoids red and processed meats, dairy, trans and saturated fats and refined sugars.

By comparison, the Western diet is characterized by low intake of fruit, vegetables and unrefined or minimally processed oils and high intakes of trans and saturated fats, dairy, refined sugars, refined and highly processed vegetable oils, sodium and processed foods.

Senior researcher Edward Weiss, Ph.D., professor of nutrition and dietetics at SLU, says the Mediterranean diet is well-established as having numerous health benefits. He and his team hypothesized that the diet's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, more alkaline pH and dietary nitrates might lead to improved exercise performance.

"Many individual nutrients in the Mediterranean diet improve exercise performance immediately or within a few days. Therefore, it makes sense that a whole dietary pattern that includes these nutrients is also quick to improve performance," Weiss said. "However, these benefits were also quickly lost when switching to the Western diet, highlighting the importance of long-term adherence to the Mediterranean diet."

The study enrolled seven women and four men in a randomized-sequence crossover study. The participants ran five kilometers on a treadmill on two occasions -- once after four days on a Mediterranean diet and on another occasion after four days on a Western diet, with a period of nine to 16 days separating the two tests.

Weiss says the study found the 5K run time was six percent faster after the Mediterranean diet than the Western diet despite similar heart rates and ratings of perceived exertion.

"This study provides evidence that a diet that is known to be good for health is also good for exercise performance," Weiss said. "Like the general population, athletes and other exercise enthusiasts commonly eat unhealthy diets. Now they have an additional incentive to eat healthy."

Other researchers on the study include Michelle Baker, Kristen DeCesare, Abby Johnson, Kathleen Kress and Cynthia Inman.

脳機能回復リハビリセンターでは日中の昼寝を推奨しています

脳機能回復リハビリセンターでは、日中の昼寝を推奨しています。
次の記事では、最近の研究によると、日中の昼寝が血圧低下に効果を持ち、低用量の降圧剤に匹敵する効果がありうるとしています。

特に高血圧症の方は、医師の指導による高血圧対策を講ずるほか、昼間の睡眠を取るようにしてください。

管理人の場合、布団に入って寝るよりも机に脚を載せて30分程度の昼寝をすると頭がすっきりします。特に前夜良質な睡眠が取れなかった場合のこの昼寝の効果は大きいです。

高血圧傾向の方が血圧が上がるとめまいや頭痛がしたり、目がかすんだり、頭の働きが落ちたりします。脳機能が働くするようにするには、そういう障害要因を除き、脳機能の状態をベストなコンディションに持っていけるような知恵、習慣をつけましょう。

サラリーマンなどの勤務者であれば、職場でうたた寝はできないでしょうから喫茶店で短時間眠るなどの方法が現実的でしょう。昼休み1時間のうち40分を昼寝に使うようなことができれば、その面では達人の域に達しています。

高血圧の年寄がいる場合には、昼寝を勧めましょう。血圧が下がり、それによる疾病の発症が遅れれば家族がどれだけ助かるかは、もう言うまでもありません。

改めて思いますが、管理人が365日、覚醒中はパソコンに向かって作業できるのは、眠くなればいつでも眠る、起きたいときに起きるというマイペースの生活ができるからです。

A Nap a Day Keeps High Blood Pressure at Bay
TEHRAN (FNA)- It seems that napping may do more than just reboot our energy level and improve our mood. New research has found that people who took advantage of a midday snooze were more likely to have a noticeable drop in blood pressure compared with those who didn't nap.

It seems that napping may do more than just reboot our energy level and improve our mood. New research being presented at the American College of Cardiology's 68th Annual Scientific Session found that people who took advantage of a midday snooze were more likely to have a noticeable drop in blood pressure compared with those who didn't nap.

"Midday sleep appears to lower blood pressure levels at the same magnitude as other lifestyle changes. For example, salt and alcohol reduction can bring blood pressure levels down by 3 to 5 mm Hg," said Manolis Kallistratos, MD, cardiologist at the Asklepieion General Hospital in Voula, Greece, and one of the study's co-authors, adding that a low-dose antihypertensive medication usually lowers blood pressure levels by 5 to 7 mm Hg, on average.

Overall, taking a nap during the day was associated with an average 5 mm Hg drop in blood pressure, which researchers said is on par with what would be expected from other known blood pressure-lowering interventions. In addition, for every 60 minutes of midday sleep, 24-hour average systolic blood pressure decreased by 3 mm Hg.

"These findings are important because a drop in blood pressure as small as 2 mm Hg can reduce the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack by up to 10 percent," Kallistratos said. "Based on our findings, if someone has the luxury to take a nap during the day, it may also have benefits for high blood pressure. Napping can be easily adopted and typically doesn't cost anything."

This is the first study to prospectively assess midday sleep's affect on blood pressure levels among people whose blood pressure is reasonably controlled, according to the researchers. The same research team previously found midday naps to be associated with reduced blood pressure levels and fewer antihypertensive medications being prescribed among people with very high blood pressure readings.

"The higher the blood pressure levels, the more pronounced any effort to lower it will appear. By including people with relatively well-controlled blood pressure, we can feel more confident that any significant differences in blood pressure readings are likely due to napping," Kallistratos said.

The study included 212 people with a mean blood pressure of 129.9 mm Hg. They were 62 years old on average and just over half were female. About 1 out of 4 participants were smokers and/or had Type 2 diabetes. The groups were similar in terms of risk factors for heart disease except there were more smokers in the napping group. Researchers assessed and recorded blood pressure for 24 hours consecutively, midday sleep time (the average duration was 49 minutes), lifestyle habits (for example, alcohol, coffee and salt consumption, physical activity levels), and pulse wave velocity, a measure of stiffness in the arteries. Participants wore an ambulatory blood pressure monitor to measure and track blood pressure at regular intervals during routine daily living, rather than just one time in the clinic. At study recruitment, participants also underwent an echocardiogram, an ultrasound of the heart that shows its structure and function.

In their analyses, researchers adjusted for factors known to influence blood pressure levels, including age, gender, lifestyle and medications. There were no differences in terms of the number of antihypertensive medications taken between the two groups, and pulse wave velocity tests and echocardiograms were also similar.

Overall, average 24-hour systolic blood pressure was 5.3 mm Hg lower among those who napped compared with those who didn't (127.6 mm Hg vs 132.9 mm Hg). When looking at both blood pressure numbers, people who slept during the day had more favorable readings (128.7/76.2 vs 134.5/79.5 mm Hg). There also appeared to be a direct linear relationship between time asleep and blood pressure; as reported, for each hour of napping, the average 24-hour systolic blood pressure lowered by 3 mm Hg.

"We obviously don't want to encourage people to sleep for hours on end during the day, but on the other hand, they shouldn't feel guilty if they can take a short nap, given the potential health benefits," Kallistratos said. "Even though both groups were receiving the same number of medications and blood pressure was well controlled, there was still a significant decrease in blood pressure among those who slept during midday."

Researchers said the findings are further bolstered because patients had similar dipping blood pressure rates at night (natural drops during nighttime sleep), meaning that any reductions in ambulatory blood pressure were separate from this phenomenon and give greater confidence that reductions in ambulatory blood pressure could be due to daytime napping.

Further research is needed to validate these findings. Although it falls outside the scope of this study, researchers said one could speculate that along with the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet endemic to this region, the cultural acceptance of midday napping may also play a role in the healthier profile seen in these populations.

Nearly half of American adults have high blood pressure. Many don't know they have it because there are often no signs or symptoms; over time, high blood pressure increases the risk of both heart attack and stroke.

Kallistratos will present the study, "Mid-day Sleep Effects as Potent as Recommended Lifestyle Changes in Patients With Arterial Hypertension," on Monday, March 18.

‘A global catastrophe’: Radiation activist warns that 5G networks are ‘massive health experiment’

‘A global catastrophe’: Radiation activist warns that 5G networks are ‘massive health experiment’
A leading activist on the issue of electromagnetic radiation and its negative impacts on public health has described the rollout of 5G as a “massive health experiment” which could “become a global catastrophe.”

Arthur Robert Firstenberg is a well-known advocate for curtailing the development of 5G networks both in the US and internationally, claiming that super fast broadband could cause cancer in humans and wildlife, as well as exacerbating the symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

In a bid to stall the rollout of the networks Firstenberg is petitioning the World Health Organization, the UN and the EU to “urgently halt the development of 5G.” The petition had garnered over 40,000 signatures at time of writing.

“The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law,” the petition states. The US rollout of the new network has already begun in cities like Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.

“This could become a global catastrophe. When the first satellites were launched in the late 1990s for mobile phones, on the day they were launched people sensitive to these things got very sick. The mortality rate rose in the US by 5-10% too and there were reports that birds were not flying,” Firstenberg told the Daily Star.

Firstenberg also claims that, in areas of the world where rollout of 5G antennas has already begun, the local population, including insects and other wildlife, are already getting sick. He claims to have a condition known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity, which induces symptoms like dizziness, nausea, amnesia, insomnia, tremors, heart arrhythmia, acute and chronic pain, among others though it is not scientifically or medically recognized.

In addition, Firstenberg filed a lawsuit seeking $1.43 million in damages from his neighbor for damaging his health by using her iPhone and WiFi connection.

Much like cell phones before it in the 1980s and 90s, 5G has encountered strong pushback from the general public since it was first announced. In September 2018, Mill Valley city council, in California, voted to block development of 5G towers and small cells in residential areas citing “serious adverse health and environmental impacts caused by the microwave radiation emitted from these 4G and 5G Small Cell Towers,” Motherboard reports.

However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “There is no scientific evidence that provides a definite answer to that question… More research is needed before we know if using cell phones causes health effects.”

Despite a number of broad-ranging studies into the potential effects of cell phone radiation showing no solid evidence of any significant health risks to humans (let alone insects), many within the scientific community remain skeptical that the benefits of 5G technology outweigh the potential harm to humans.

Tworecent studies also showed elevated risk of cancerous tumors developing in male rats (though not female) who were exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) for nine hours a day over two years. However, the claims didn’t stand up in follow-up double-blind tests.

215 scientists from 40 different countries have allegedly signed an appeal calling for international protection from non-ionizing electromagnetic field exposure, the effects of which include, but are not limited to, “increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being.”

In a letter, Dr Martin Pall, a biochemistry professor at the Washington State University, claimed there were severe biological and health effects, including increased risk of cancer via DNA mutations, due to exposure to 5G networks, while also claiming that the FCC is a “captured agency” that is subject to the will of the very industry it is supposed to regulate.

5G would provide broadband speeds over 100 times faster than current data speeds. But to facilitate its rollout 300,000 new antennas would be required in the US alone. That’s roughly equal to three decades-worth of cell phone tower development.

The networks require a more dense array of “small cell” sites because their high frequency waves provide faster speeds but don’t travel as far.

Vigorous Walking Just Got Easier to Track

TEHRAN (FNA)- In an ongoing study exploring walking for health across the adult lifespan, researchers found that walking cadence is a reliable measure of exercise intensity and set simple steps-per-minute guidelines for moderate and vigorous intensity.

In an ongoing study exploring walking for health across the adult lifespan, University of Massachusetts Amherst kinesiology researchers found that walking cadence is a reliable measure of exercise intensity and set simple steps-per-minute guidelines for moderate and vigorous intensity.

Catrine Tudor-Locke, professor of kinesiology, and postdoctoral researchers Elroy Aguiar and Scott Ducharme concluded that for adults, age 21-40, walking about 100 steps per minute constitutes moderate intensity, while vigorous walking begins at about 130 steps per minute.

The research, published this month in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, offers walkers a concrete way to track their activity level without relying on exercise devices or complicated calculations about oxygen consumption or heart rate. It represents the first set of outcomes from Tudor-Locke's ongoing, five-year CADENCE-Adults study, funded with a $2.2 million grant from the NIH's National Institute on Aging. The study seeks to establish the relationship between walking cadence (steps per minute) and intensity (metabolic rate) across the adult lifespan, from age 21 to 85.

Using the study's initial results for younger adults, walkers can simply count their steps to determine their approximate exercise intensity. Counting steps for 15 seconds and multiplying by four, for example, will determine steps per minute.

"This research establishes a very practical method to measure the intensity of walking, one that is very easy to communicate and also rigorously validated by the science," says Tudor-Locke, a well-known expert on the steps-per-day question.

To ensure sex and age balance, researchers recruited 10 men and 10 women for each five-year age group between 21 and 40, for a total of 80 healthy participants. They performed a series of five-minute walks on a treadmill, with two-minute rests, as their cadence was hand-tallied and intensity (METs) was measured using a portable indirect calorimeter. Sessions began at .5 mph and increased in .5 mph increments until participants either began to run, reached 75 percent of their predicted maximum heart rate or reported a perceived exertion of "somewhat hard."

Federal guidelines call for 150 minutes of "moderate" or 75 minutes of "vigorous" exercise each week. Moderate intensity is defined as activity that requires 3 METs (metabolic equivalents of task), or three times the amount of oxygen that's consumed while sitting still. In the study, moderate-intensity walking began at about 2.7 mph and was equal to 3 METs. Vigorous walking was associated with 6 METs.

Aguiar said that the natural walking pace of 90 percent of the study participants was above the moderate-pace threshold. "If you just tell people to walk at their normal speed, they probably are going to walk above 100 steps per minute. Asking people to walk for exercise is a low-cost, low-skill, feasible activity choice which has the potential to drastically improve people's health," he says.

The research suggests a simple but powerful public health message: Just walk, as much as possible. "Our society has engineered movement out of our life," Aguiar says. "We have TVs, we have cars, we have remotes. It's clear that you can achieve the public health guidelines for physical activity through walking."

Researchers used two distinct analytical methods to determine the approximate walking cadence thresholds. They also found that after moderate intensity walking of 100 steps per minute was reached, each 10 steps-per-minute increase was associated with an increase in intensity of one MET. So, 4 METs is roughly equivalent to 110 steps per minute and 5 METs with 120 steps per minute.

Although the findings confirm data from previous research, the CADENCE-Adults study is the first calibration study to use a sex-and-age-balanced sampling approach, Tudor-Locke said. Future reports from the study may establish age-appropriate walking thresholds.

Best Foods to Boost Your Brain, Memory
TEHRAN (FNA)- Your brain is arguably the most important organ in the body, being the command center for everything else. And completely aside from keeping your lungs breathing and your heart beating, the brain controls emotions that color how we approach everything in our lives.

Keeping your brain in optimal condition not only facilitates the health of your body, it can support your ability to learn new things and to handle the tough situations that come your way. (And it’s always something in life, isn’t it?) Wellness starts in the kitchen, and we’ve got you covered with a list of the most important ingredients for peak brain health.

Pomegranate juice

Pomegranate juice is full of potent antioxidants, which can help protect your brain from damaging free radicals. We hear a lot about free radicals and skin damage, but in reality, the brain is more susceptible to damage from free radicals than any other part of the body.

There is also some evidence that suggests pregnant women who drink pomegranate juice can protect the brains of their infants if they are deprived of oxygen during birth. However, pomegranate juice usually has added sugar because it is very naturally tart. Just two ounces per day is recommended – you can dilute it with water and add a sprig of mint for a very refreshing beverage.

Beans

The brain relies on a steady dose of glucose to work its best, which is why people actually get angry when they let their blood sugar tank. Beans are full of B vitamins and deliver slow burning energy, which keeps you mentally sharp and better able to navigate challenges throughout the day.



They are also extremely affordable and a great addition to many meals. Getting ½ cup per day is ideal. If you find that beans upset your digestive system (they are the “musical fruit” after all) try lentils instead for a similar dose of B vitamins.

Whole grains

Fiber-rich whole grains are associated with many positive benefits in the body. There has been some research out of Columbia University Medical Center that suggests a high-fiber diet lowers your risk of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease as you age. It also reduces overall inflammation and oxidative stress, as well as potentially lowers blood pressure.

All of these effects have a role in reducing the risk of brain disorders. It is key that you choose whole grains, however, not refined. White flour, for example, has an extremely high glycemic index and is associated with an increased risk of cancer.

Turmeric

Turmeric is deep-yellow spice that has a number of benefits for the brain. One of the main ingredients in curry powder, the active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. That means it can directly enter the brain and benefit its cells. Curcumin also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

It may improve memory in Alzheimer’s patients and clear the amyloid plaques that occur with the disease. Turmeric has been shown to boost both serotonin and dopamine, which can ease depression symptoms and improve overall mood. More research is necessary, but turmeric may even help new brain cells grow and thus reduce the effects of aging on cognitive ability.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds have those all important antioxidants to protect the brain from free radical damage. But they are also chock full of iron, magnesium, copper, and zinc, all of which are crucial to brain health. Iron deficiency can cause brain fog and diminished brain capacity. Magnesium supports learning and memory; low levels of magnesium are found in many patients with migraines, depression, and epilepsy.



Zinc and copper are both integral elements of nerve signaling, necessary for the brain to convey the right messages to the body. Zinc and copper deficiency is linked to neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and depression.

Oranges

Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that can help rein in aging related mental decline and potentially help stave off Alzheimer’s. It also protects the brain from free radical damage, and is a critical part of synthesizing dopamine. It’s not too difficult to get enough – one medium orange per day can deliver all the vitamin C you need for top brain health.

Vitamin C deficiency causes scurvy, which is fatal if not treated and has a range of painful physical symptoms. Specific brain-related problems with scurvy include hallucinations and depression. While oranges are one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin C, many other foods offer this vital nutrient, including kiwi fruit, bell peppers, strawberries, and tomatoes.

Eggs

Eggs have a lot of vital nutrients for brain health, including B6, B12, and folate. Deficiencies in these nutrients are linked to depression and mental decline in the elderly. B12 also has a role in synthesizing chemicals and regulating glucose levels in the brain. They also contain choline, a micronutrient used by the body to make acetylcholine, which helps to regulate and stabilize mood and memory.

High choline intake is associated with strong memory and mental function, but many people don’t get enough in their diets. Egg yolks have a more concentrated amount of choline than most any other source, so don’t skip the yolk unless you are also eating a lot of foods like liver, shellfish, dark greens, and mushrooms.

Dark Chocolate

And finally, here is a brain-boosting food that feels like a treat. Dark chocolate, more specifically the cocoa powder contained in dark chocolate, contains several brain-friendly compounds such as flavonoids, caffeine, and antioxidants. Flavonoids are known to help with learning and memory as well as slow aging-related mental decline. One study found that people who ate chocolate frequently performed better in mental and memory-related tasks than people who rarely ate it. Chocolate also seems to elevate mood, though it is unclear whether that is because of specific compounds in the chocolate or because eating tasty foods feels good. In any case, there is no need to deny yourself a small taste of chocolate every day. Dark chocolate contains less added sugar and a higher concentration of cocoa powder, so it is a better overall choice.

Each of the foods on our list are relatively easy to incorporate into a brain-healthy diet. You can grab an orange or some pumpkin seeds for a snack, add beans to taco salad, drink a refreshing pomegranate juice seltzer, and finish off with a couple of squares of chocolate. Being informed and educated about the best food choices for strong brain function and longevity makes it much easier to make a smart selection when you realize you feel mentally zapped. Smart thinking on your part to have read this article!

Only a Glass of This Juice will Remove Clogged Arteries And Control Blood Pressure
TEHRAN (FNA)- Clogged or blocked arteries can be caused by a blood clot or by plaque that forms and builds up as a result of high levels of cholesterol in the blood. This blockage causes an immense amount of pressure in the blood because it can’t move freely throughout the body like it needs to, causing high blood pressure, also known as hypertension.

Once arteries are blocked, it becomes very difficult to clear them out, and sadly high blood pressure affects an estimated 100 million Americans according to recent research published by the American Heart Association.

Experts believe that high cholesterol begins with damage to and/or plaque blocking the inner layer of the artery. Many reasons for this include smoking, heredity, poor diet, lack of exercise, obesity and diabetes. With this problem being so prevalent, many individuals have sought medical help including high doses of medication. And while seeking medical advice is always a recommended way to turn when dealing with health problems like these, it can become expensive. Thankfully, there are natural solutions including the one we’re about to show you.

lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and honey, you will be able to simply and healthfully unclog arteries and control blood pressure.

Why it works

Garlic has been shown to be a natural way to clear blocks in the arteries, as well as reduce blood pressureand bad cholesterol levels. It can also reduce blood sugar levels, which aids in weight loss because when sugar levels are in normal ranges make it easier to control your appetite, which in turn aids in weight loss.

Ginger has been linked to the prevention of heart disease because of its ability to increase blood flow. It also has energy producing capabilities that will help you to be more physically active, thus aiding in weight loss.

Lemon has been shown in research studies to regulate the heartbeat, restoring the proper function of the heart, helping blood to flow throughout the body easier.

Apple cider vinegar has antioxidants that play a crucial role in removing toxins from the body and blood. It also has healthy vitamins, minerals and enzymes to keep the body healthy.

Honey fights bacteria, energizes the body and has been shown to reduce cholesterol and heart disease.

How to make it

Ingredients:

1 cup ginger juice
1 cup garlic puree
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups organic honey

Directions

Extract the juice from the ingredients.
Put ginger, garlic, lemon juice and vinegar in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes while stirring.
Remove from heat and let cool completely.
Add 2 cups of honey and mix well.
Poor the mixture in a clean bottle and store in the refrigerator.

How to use it

Take 1 tablespoon of the mixture each morning, afternoon and evening on an empty stomach. The mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.

Iranian Researchers Reduce Fat in Liver by Fennel Extract
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian scientists could decrease the amount of fat in mice's liver by using fennel extract.

Ehsan Varzdar and Farzin Dadbakhsh, two Iranian researchers, first used animal fat with high cholesterol to increase fat in 5 male and 5 female laboratory mice.

They decreased the fat in the mice's liver and body by feeding them with fennel extract.

Iran is one of the pioneering countries in production and exports of herbal medicine.

The CEO of an Iranian company announced in October that his company had signed two contracts amounting to $7 million to sell herbal medicines to Uganda and Kenya.

Hojjatollah Zabihi, the CEO of a knowledge-based herbal medicines production company made the remarks, recounting that his company had signed a $5 million deal with Kenya, and a $2 million contract with Uganda for exporting Iranian-made herbal medicines.

The agreements were signed in the recent visit of Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari to the two East African countries. Sattari was accompanied by a high-ranking delegation comprised of officials and heads of 70 knowledge-based companies.

Zabihi said that under the agreements, the company would launch five production lines for five different products in Kenya and Uganda. He added that three production lines were for ointment, syrup and capsule, while the other two were for animal products.

Iran would produce the raw materials for these production lines for ten years and export them to these two countries, he added.

According to him, two Iranian knowledge-based companies would take care of the production and packaging of the medicines.

The technical know-how would be transferred to Uganda and Kenya after two years, he added.

He said the implementation of the agreements would create jobs for 150-200 Iranian farmers, leading to $20-30 million of income in a year.

心臓手術をした人生の先輩に出会った日

2018/11/25、穏やかな天気でしたので近いところに徘徊に出ました。目的の駅に着くと、改札の前にレゴブロックで作ったような電車の運転席。早速中に入って記念撮影をしている人がいます。童心に返る老人?、それとも痴ほう症状の典型老人?


幕張中学の脇にある旧道でしょう。今となっては貴重な遺構です。この脇に広い道路が整備されたのはほんの何年か前です。


見事なピラカンサ。


三代王神社の急な階段を上り、台地の上に出ました。新しい家が増えています。この台地の畑もいつまで残るかです。幕張ハウスの脇を通り下に降りて北に向かうと、高速道路のアンダーパスの手前で若い人に道を聞かれました。幕張パーキングエリアの東京方面に行きたいというのです。

高速道路沿いの下道の入口にPASAR幕張と書いた矢印の看板があります。PASARって何? わかりませんでしたが、インターチェンジならこんな看板はありません。

若い人が小型のスマホを持っていましたが、地図が小さくて見えません。私のタブレットは通信容量節約のため機内モードにしてありました。無責任に、「ええ、あっちでよいんじゃないの」と答えましたが、帰宅して確認するまで少し不安が残りました。

次回からいつでもタブレットの地図を開けて確認し正しく答えようと反省しました。データ通信量が限度を超過しても100円程度のことです。

歩き出しながら、連れが「あの人、パチンコに行くのか?」と聞きますので、「パーキングエリアの東京方面側」に行きたいと言っていたんだと返します。

車を運転しない人は、パーキングエリアなどと言っても何をするところかわかりませんよね。しかも、若い人はそこに自転車で行くところなのですから。でも、パーキングエリア→パチンコエリア!! かなり耳おかしいぞ!

それに、道路公団は勝手に施設の名前を変えるな!

台地の上に上がり、畑の中を歩きます。家庭菜園がありますが、みながっちりガード。網がかぶせてあります。イチゴの苗を掘っている年配者に聞いたらやはり泥棒が多いとのことでした。

この地域の生産者は野菜を市場出荷することはなく、近くの店に卸しているそうです。農協の手数料も市場の手数料も省けます。モノは新鮮です。住宅が迫っている都市近郊地帯ではそのような出荷形態が多いでしょう。そのため、汚染地帯では被ばくが多くなるリスクがあります。

今日はいつものコースに途中で戻りましたが、家庭菜園しかない方向から年配の男性が歩いてきました。リュックを背負っています。野良仕事の帰りには見えません。ウォーキングでしょうか。



声をかけてお尋ねしました。家庭菜園で作業をした帰りだそうです。

この先輩は、1年前に心臓の大きな手術をしています。

「毎日パチンコに行っていたんですが、パチンコの帰りに倒れて救急車で運ばれました。最初に大久保の病院に行ったのですが、受け入れを断られ、習志野の病院もダメで船橋の病院が受け入れてくれました。
日曜でしたが、当直の医師が心臓外科の先生で、すぐ手術をしてもらえました」
(夏見台の近くとおっしゃっていましたので、船橋総合病院のようです)

それは幸いでしたね。その船橋の病院はすぐに心臓手術ができるほどにレベルが高いんですか。何か月入院されました。

「3か月と少しです。私は何でも食べるほうなんですが、手術のあとは食欲が出なかったのです。病院のほうでいろいろ出してくれて『どれでも食べたいものを食べてください』と言ってくれましたが、退院後も食欲が戻るまでに時間がかかりました」

昨年の10月に入院されたのですからちょうど1年と1か月ほど経過ですね。それで畑作業ができるまで回復されたんですか。

「人工心臓が入っています。全部ではありませんが。それと人工の血管。6種類の薬を呑んでいます」

パチンコはもうなさらないんですか。

「止めました。妻が止めろというもので」

体に無理がかからなければ、家庭菜園のほうが健康には良いですよね。それに万一何かあってもパチンコの帰りより家庭菜園の帰りならまあしょうがないと奥様も思われるでしょうから。倒れる前になにか前兆なようなものはありませんでしたか。

「私はそれまで病気をしたことがなかったんです。特に前兆のようなものは・・・」

福島の原発事故の後、心筋梗塞などで倒れる方が増えています。事故の後、何か気を付けられましたか?

「いや、特に。私は80歳ですし、前回の発症でもう死んだも同然と思っています。特に何かに気をつけて暮らすという考えもあまりありません」

でも、運ばれた病院の当直の医師が心臓外科が専門ですぐ手術してくれてここまで回復できたのですから、天の声はもっと生き続けよというということではないでしょうか。

ここから駅まで少しありますがどこまで帰られるんですか。

「〇〇まで帰ります。バスを使って1時間です」

今日はお話しできて大変ありがたかったです。時々こちらに来ていますから、またお話しさせてください。

握手をして別れました。

今日は帰りの電車で、2回、停車駅名を間違える車掌に出会いました。私の連れといい、みんな大丈夫?

栗イガの奇襲攻撃を受けた日

2018/9/23、気温も下がり、天気もまずまずで徘徊に出ました。いつものルートです。

今日は、タブレットパソコンの活用方策検討のため測定器と共に持ち出しましたが、接続ケーブルを間違えたためタブレットパソコンも測定器もどっちも動きませんでした。その分気楽に歩けましたけど荷物が少し重かった。

今日は一人でしたので、せっせと最短距離を歩くことにしました。最初は順調でした。京葉カントリークラブを超えて多部田町の団地辺りが中間点になります。



キンモクセイの香りが流れています。この時期に郊外を歩く時の楽しみの一つです。

ヤマボウシ 赤い実がきれいです。


マンジュシャゲもコスモスも咲いていました。




途中にゴルフ場があります。私と同じような体形の方が二、三人おられました。やせた方よりも見た目の安定感がありますね。

お一人は派手な衣装ですが、他の方はだいぶ年配ですね。(お前が言うな! はぁ。年配のことをどこで感じるか? シャツを中に入れズボンを上げてしっかりとしたベルトを強めに締めているところです。)


アカマツです。


1時間で多部田町の団地公園に着きました。前回途中で腹痛が起きてこの公園のトイレに駆け込みました。和式で狭くて後ろに転げ落ちそうでおちおち使えなかったトイレではありますが、やはりトイレの所在を知っているのは心強いのです。

ここで水を飲み、昼飯を食べ、辺りに人がいないのを確認してタバコを吸います。この公園には子供がいないのです。これまで一度、一人二人見たかどうかです。若い世帯がいないのですね。空き家が多いです。バス便はまだあるようですが。

ここから千城台まではせっせと歩けば1時間で行けるでしょう。でもせっかく環境の良い場所に来たわけですから、木々や畑を眺めながらゆっくりと畑仕事をしている人に声をかけたりして歩きました。



多部田町の団地を北に抜けると台地を下り東金街道の通る低地を渡りまた台地に上ると千城台までは平坦な都市計画街路です。最短距離の経路を頭に入れていたつもりでしたが途中で道を間違え、東金街道から離れた集落の縁を回りました。

階段はどこだろうとキョロキョロしながら行くと、突然目の前に栗のイガが落ちてきて足元で炸裂しました。わっ!と、飛びのきます。栗のクラスター爆弾です。イガの直撃で人を傷つけ、さらに弾け飛んだ栗で、打撲傷を与えようとしている? まさかイスラエル製じゃないだろうな。

道路に真新しいイガが三つ落ちていましたのでそれらの栗を奇襲攻撃の証拠品として押収しました。



私はいつも厚手の生地のキャップをかぶっていますからイガの直撃を受けても大丈夫です。ですが、今日はいなかったものの連れは帽子が嫌いで、地肌が見えるほどの薄い髪の毛の頭をむき出しにしています。

イヒヒ、あの頭をイガが直撃したらダメージは大きいぞ。救急車を呼ぼうと精いっぱい騒いで反省させる好機!

栗の毬のトゲは、刺さると容易には抜けないそうです。栗拾いでイガごと叩き落として栗を拾うような機会があったら、顔や目などにトゲが刺さらないように注意しましょう。

そんなことを考え、にやにやしながら歩いていたら向こうからそれぞれに犬を連れたご夫婦がやってきました。犬に手を振るとご主人の犬が寄ってきて、ご主人と言葉を交わします。

「散歩ですか」
「ウォーキングです。この腹を引っ込めたいので」
「せっかくいい体格なのにもったいない。私なんか太れないです」
「体格をほめていただくのはありがたいけど、一般的にはあまり評価されませんし、とにかく体を動かすのが大儀になって」
「お勤めは」
「もう勤めていません。毎日忙しいことは忙しいのですが」
「私はまだ働いています。それと朝晩各1時間のこれらの散歩、それに庭の松の盆栽などの手入れもあります」
「それはとても良いですね。体形的には健康そのものですよ」
「ウエスト85です」
「私は100はあります」
「私はオタクとあまり年が違わないと思います」
「えーっ、最初お見かけしたとき60歳前後かと思いましたよ」

この方お幾つだと思いますか? 私といくつも違わないとはとても思えませんでした。


それにこの体形です。シニアファッションモデルも十分務まるでしょう。


おそらく在宅で仕事をしておられるのでしょう。「向こうの山はだいぶ木を切って様子が変わってしまった」などと遠い目で話すときはやはり年齢を感じさせますが、徘徊の際にこういう形で行き会って向こうから次々と話を振ってこられることはまずありません。とても幅のあるシャープな方でした。

お別れしてから、私が海外ニュースで見たどなたかに似ておられると思い探したらRTの創設者でした。この方は、どの写真も個性的で印象に残ります。ロシアのステートメディアはたくさんありますが、ロシアのことだけを扱うのでなく、広く世界のニュースを一般のMSMと違う視点で取り上げるという点で成功しました。管理人は、ネットのニュースサイトとしてはRTがダントツだと考えます。


東金街道から北側の台地に上る階段です。このような階段は何か所かあります。この階段には上と下に杖の用意がしてあります。


千城台の駅に近いところで見た子ども食堂。今準備中なのでしょうか。


千葉都市モノレールが初音ミクとタイアップして何かキャンペーンかイベントをやるようです。初音ミクファンの方にお土産です。(なんだー? これ! なんて言わないでください。いいおっさんクラスの男性が終着駅でこれの写真を撮りまくっていたんですよ。何人も。)




知らない人のために、初音ミクは架空のキャラクターなんだそうです。私も知りませんでした。

Cancer in Rats: High Radio Frequency Radiation
TEHRAN (FNA)- The National Toxicology Program (NTP) concluded there is clear evidence that male rats exposed to high levels of radio frequency radiation (RFR) like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones developed cancerous heart tumors, according to final reports released today.

The National Toxicology Program (NTP) concluded there is clear evidence that male rats exposed to high levels of radio frequency radiation (RFR) like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones developed cancerous heart tumors, according to final reports released today. There was also some evidence of tumors in the brain and adrenal gland of exposed male rats. For female rats, and male and female mice, the evidence was equivocal as to whether cancers observed were associated with exposure to RFR. The final reports represent the consensus of NTP and a panel of external scientific experts who reviewed the studies in March after draft reports were issued in February.

"The exposures used in the studies cannot be compared directly to the exposure that humans experience when using a cell phone," said John Bucher, Ph.D., NTP senior scientist. "In our studies, rats and mice received radio frequency radiation across their whole bodies. By contrast, people are mostly exposed in specific local tissues close to where they hold the phone. In addition, the exposure levels and durations in our studies were greater than what people experience."

The lowest exposure level used in the studies was equal to the maximum local tissue exposure currently allowed for cell phone users. This power level rarely occurs with typical cell phone use. The highest exposure level in the studies was four times higher than the maximum power level permitted.

"We believe that the link between radio frequency radiation and tumors in male rats is real, and the external experts agreed," said Bucher.

The $30 million NTP studies took more than 10 years to complete and are the most comprehensive assessment, to date, of health effects in animals exposed to RFR with modulations used in 2G and 3G cell phones. 2G and 3G networks were standard when the studies were designed and are still used for phone calls and texting.

"A major strength of our studies is that we were able to control exactly how much radio frequency radiation the animals received -- something that's not possible when studying human cell phone use, which has often relied on questionnaires," said Michael Wyde, Ph.D., lead toxicologist on the studies.

He also noted the unexpected finding of longer lifespans among the exposed male rats. "This may be explained by an observed decrease in chronic kidney problems that are often the cause of death in older rats," Wyde said.

The animals were housed in chambers specifically designed and built for these studies. Exposure to RFR began in the womb for rats and at 5 to 6 weeks old for mice, and continued for up to two years, or most of their natural lifetime. The RFR exposure was intermittent, 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off, totaling about nine hours each day. RFR levels ranged from 1.5-6 watts per kilogram in rats, and 2.5-10 watts per kilogram in mice.

These studies did not investigate the types of RFR used for Wi-Fi or 5G networks.

"5G is an emerging technology that hasn't really been defined yet. From what we currently understand, it likely differs dramatically from what we studied," said Wyde.

For future studies, NTP is building smaller RFR exposure chambers that will make it easier to evaluate newer telecommunications technologies in weeks or months, rather than years. These studies will focus on developing measurable physical indicators, or biomarkers, of potential effects from RFR. These may include changes in metrics like DNA damage in exposed tissues, which can be detected much sooner than cancer.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration nominated cell phone RFR for study by NTP because of widespread public use of cell phones and limited knowledge about potential health effects from long-term exposure. NTP will provide the results of these studies to FDA and the Federal Communications Commission, who will review the information as they continue to monitor new research on the potential effects of RFR.

NTP uses four categories to summarize the evidence that a substance may cause cancer:

Clear evidence (highest)
Some evidence
Equivocal evidence
No evidence (lowest)

More information on the categories is available at https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/results/pubs/longterm/defs/index.html.

Editor's Note: In response to the National Toxicology Program's news release, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a statement from Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., J.D., Director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health on the National Toxicology Program's report on radiofrequency energy exposure (https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm624809.htm). The statement reads, in part:

"We reviewed the recently finalized research conducted by our colleagues at the National Toxicology Program (NTP), part of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences within the National Institutes of Health, on radiofrequency energy exposure. After reviewing the study, we disagree, however, with the conclusions of their final report regarding 'clear evidence' of carcinogenic activity in rodents exposed to radiofrequency energy.

"In the NTP study, researchers looked at the effects of exposing rodents to extremely high levels of radiofrequency throughout the entire body. This is commonly done in these types of hazard identification studies and means that the study tested levels of radiofrequency energy exposures considerably above the current whole body safety limits for cell phones. Doing this was intended to help contribute to what we already understand about the effects of radiofrequency energy on animal tissue. In fact, we only begin to observe effects to animal tissue at exposures that are 50 times higher than the current whole body safety limits set by the FCC for radiofrequency energy exposure.

"Our colleagues at NTP echoed this point in a statement earlier this year about their draft final report, including the important note that 'these findings should not be directly extrapolated to human cell phone usage.'

"We agree that these findings should not be applied to human cell phone usage."

ぎょ! 昼寝をするとアルツハイマーになる?

Daytime Naps Could Increase Alzheimer's Risk

New research shows that taking naps during the day could lead to increased plaque development associated with Alzheimer’s disease. According to Interesting Engineering, most experts recommend getting a solid eight hours of sleep each night as the magical number to allow the body to recover, encourage mental clarity and boost the immune system.

However, new data shows that trying to make up for a bad night’s sleep by taking naps could be harmful to your mental health.

The study, from Johns Hopkins University reports that people who are very sleepy during the day were three times more likely than those who were well rested to develop Alzheimer’s disease.

The new research bolsters a growing body of evidence linking good sleep patterns with reduced risk of getting the dreaded disease.

"Factors like diet, exercise and cognitive activity have been widely recognized as important potential targets for Alzheimer’s disease prevention, but sleep hasn’t quite risen to that level of studies−although that may well be changing," said Adam P. Spira Ph.D., associate d professor in the Department of Mental Health at John’s Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Spira was the lead author of the study with collaborators from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the Bloomberg School, and Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The researchers found that participants in their study who reported daytime sleepiness were three times more likely to have beta-amyloid plaque deposits in their brains than those who didn’t report feeling sleepy.

黒い舌にびっくり

今朝、洗面所で何気なく舌を出してみたら表面が黒い。こんな感じ。


慌てて調べる。日本口腔外科学会のサイト

「舌が黒褐色になった場合、黒毛舌が疑われます。細菌の繁殖で起こります。飲食物やタバコなどの原因で起きることもあります。 ごくまれに黒色腫などの腫瘍の場合もありますので口腔外科で相談してみましょう。

舌に毛が生えたように見える状態を毛舌といいます。しばしば着色を伴い、その多くは黒色で、このようなものを黒毛舌といいます。悪い病気ではありません。

抗生剤の副作用や、口腔内を不潔にしていると起きることがあります。口腔内の細菌のコントロール状態が悪くなり、菌交代現象として黒色色素を産生する嫌気性菌や真菌が増殖したものです。また胃腸障害、糖尿病、腎障害なども誘因としてあげられています。

抗生物質を飲むのをやめたり、体調が回復すれば自然に治ってきます。」

糖尿病? 腎障害! 嫌気性菌や真菌の増殖!!
そういえば、傷の治りが悪いから糖尿病??

抗生剤の副作用や、口腔内を不潔にしていることが原因!
抗生剤は呑んでいない。口腔内が不潔すぎる!!

タバコとコーヒーが悪いらしい。二つとも止める?? そんなことできるかな?

まずは、口腔内を清潔にするためヨウ素の補給を兼ねてうがい薬でうがいをしよう。

でもよく見ると毛が生えたようには見えない。まず口を漱いでみよう。一回目でだいぶ落ちた。三回やったらほとんど目立たなくなった。

原因はコーヒーだ。舌の表面が荒れていることは間違いない。コーヒーもたばこも控えなくては。

小麦アレルギーは農薬が原因?

※ 2018/8/23、Bさんの投稿
農薬が大豆アレルギーの原因になっていそうですね。
小麦と同じで、やはりアレルギーは農薬(化学物質)が原因という説は正しいですね。 
5年位前ですが、病院でアレルギー検査をし、数値の高い項目があったので医者(高齢)に原因を聞いたら、「わからない」というので、
じゃあどうすれば良いのか?と聞いたら、
「避けるしかない。過去に原因の研究をしていたが・・・途中でしなくなった。」
と含みある返事だったので、私も察して、質問を止めました。
アレルギーという言葉を使えば、自己責任にできますよね。

 日本モンサントは、2日に大学と共催で、遺伝子組み換え作物などの教育イベントを行いました。高校生や大学生ら54人が参加しましたが、PR会社が金銭を支払った学生27人に対し、ツイッターにイベントに関する肯定的な感想を投稿するよう促していたことが分かりました。投稿のなかには、「遺伝子について楽しく学べた」「遺伝子組み換えって危険なイメージがあったけど変わった」などがあります。こうした宣伝手法について、日本モンサントとPR会社は、「投稿は学生の意思で、業界のガイドラインを遵守(じゅんしゅ)し、#ambassadorと書かれているため宣伝だと分かる」としていますが、投稿時、この表記のない書き込みが複数ありました。PR会社は「学生側のミス」と主張しています。遺伝子組み換え食品について、政府は、安全性が確認できたものに限り流通を認めていますが、内閣府の調査によりますと、減少傾向にあるものの、35%が「不安を感じる」と答えています。こうしたテーマの宣伝方法として、消費者問題に詳しい弁護士は疑問を呈しています。

子供の朝食用シリアルからグリホサートが高濃度で検出

米国のシリアルからグリホサートが検出されているという情報は前からありましたが、ことごとく汚染という状況になっています。遺伝組み換え、グリホサート、放射性物質汚染。米国人にがんが増えないはずがありません。米国の支配層は何を食べているんでしょう。将来的にはロシア産のほうが安心かもしれません。

Cereal killers: Monsanto weedkiller that can ‘probably’ cause cancer found in children’s breakfasts
A hearty bowl of oatmeal is a healthy way to start your day, but according to a new study, that bowl of oatmeal can contain dangerous levels of glyphosate, a weed-killing chemical linked to cancer.

The study, carried out by the non-profit Environmental Working Group, found that 43 out of 45 popular breakfast cereals tested in three locations in the US contained traces of glyphosate. 31 of these contained dangerously high levels of the chemical.

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, a weedkiller manufactured by Monsanto. Roundup is the most popular weedkiller in the US, and last week a court in California ordered the company to pay $39 million in compensation and $250 million in punitive damages to a school groundskeeper who developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after years of using Roundup at work.

The World Health Organization’s cancer research agency classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” in 2015. In the US, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) labeled glyphosate a carcinogen in 1985, but reversed its position in 1991. In 2017, California listed glyphosate in its Proposition 65 registry of chemicals known to cause cancer.

The cereals tested weren’t all lurid-colored Lucky Charms or sugar-crusted Frosties, but oat-based ‘healthy’ choices. The high levels of glyphosate came from the oats themselves.

The highest levels were found in Quaker Old Fashioned Oats - 1,000 parts per billion (ppb) of glyphosate. The EWG calculated levels above 160 ppb as unsafe for children. Giant Instant Oatmeal contained 760 ppb, and three samples of Cheerios contained concentrations of between 470 and 530 ppb.

250 million pounds of glyphosate are sprayed on American crops every year, but the highest concentrations of the chemical are found in non-GMO wheat, barley, oats, and beans. Farmers spray these crops with glyphosate right before harvest time, as they kill the crop and dry it out, making it ready for harvest quicker.

All oats are not equal though. The EWG also tested 16 cereals made with organically-grown oats. While five of these contained glyphosate, none were above the group’s health benchmark of 160 ppb. While organic foods should by definition be free of chemicals like glyphosate, these chemicals can often drift onto these crops from nearby fields of conventionally-grown crops, or at factories that handle both kinds of crop.

“Glyphosate does not belong in cereal,” said the EWG. The organization called on Americans to “urge the EPA to restrict pre-harvest applications of glyphosate and tell companies to identify and use sources of glyphosate-free oats.”

Meanwhile, despite several contradictory studies and a multi-million dollar payout, Monsanto’s parent company, Bayer, said last week that “glyphosate is safe for use and does not cause cancer when used according to the label.”

添加物が体の不調を招く?

※ みなみうりゃ寿司 @t_minamiura氏の19:55 - 2018年8月11日 のツイート
昨年末に倒れて救急車に乗った原因は山崎パンに入っているイースト菌だったんだけど、そのせいでパンを半年以上一口も食べてないんだよね。

※ みなみうりゃ寿司 @t_minamiura氏の2018/8/11のツイート
そのはるか3年前に肩を怪我してから全身の筋肉の炎症に悩まされていて週に2〜3回の鍼治療でしててかなり回復してきたんだけど、ここ1.5年位は停滞期であまり回復はしてなかったんだよね。

※ みなみうりゃ寿司 @t_minamiura氏の2018/8/11のツイート
偶然かどうかはわからないなが山崎パンを食べなくなってから半年でメキメキと良くなってきて、薬の量もかなり減って週イチの鍼治療でなんとか生きていけるようになったわ。
俺の身体の不調の根源は山崎パンだったと思っているww

太陽光発電装置の近くでは電磁波が強い

ホットスポットファインダーをぶら下げて現地調査に回っています。

2018/7/1は、この夏一番かと見られる強い日差し。こんな時は太陽光発電装置はフル稼働です。

太陽光発電装置がずいぶん増えています。





現地調査を終えて帰宅後、データを確認すると・・・。


ホットスポットファインダーに使用している測定器は、167cpmで約1μSv/hです。200cpmの10倍、100倍に達しています。えっ、えっ、えっ!!

データを細かく調べます。右側のスパイクのところを見るとこんな具合にノイズが入っていました。「時刻(時、分、秒)」と「表示値cpm」です。


数字でない文字や記号は、グラフではゼロのところにプロットされます。上の部分では815cpmとなっています。これは、余計な「8」が付いてしまったと推定されます。

それにこのシステムでは、cpm値は10秒ごとに表示されるようにデータのとり方を設定しているにもかかわらず、1秒の間に12回もデータが記録されています。

完全にノイズです。

でも、こんなにすごいノイズは初めてです。後で衛星画像を確認して上のグラフの少なくとも中央付近での異常値は太陽光発電装置に囲まれた場所で記録されたことが分かりました。この時、私が首からかけたGPS受信機の受信も途切れています。

ここです。少し盛り土してあったようで、道路からは気づきませんでした。


(なお、グラフの右側のスパイクの原因は、線路のそばで休んだ際にシステムを地面に置いてありましたので、原因がつかめません。)

太陽光発電装置から出る電磁波が人の健康に影響することがあるのかどうかわかりませんが、とにかくすごい電磁波が出ていることは知っておいたほうが良いでしょう。

管理人は、東日本の農地や丘陵はどんどん太陽光パネルに覆われていくだろうと予想しています。
