Madcap Miss is coming to visit me for the weekend.  
We're going to spend some time in the desert preparing for the end of the world as we know it.   Heh.

Sunshine again

Vitamin B.S.
How people came to believe the myth that nutritional supplements could make them into better, healthier versions of themselves.

Good article.  another for my collection in the history of bullshit.

The current nonsense is Vitamin D.  Now that they are admitting that supplementation is mostly crap, we have the opposite problem... they refuse to admit they've made us all D3 deficient by telling us to stay our of the sun for the last 30 years.
Vitamin D regulates your immune system, without it, you get infections.  Period.
Put some in your head, please.

Craziest Fking Thing I've Ever Read

Mummified Monk Sits Inside Ancient Buddha Statue
The museum speculates Liu Quan may have "self-mummified" in order to become a "living Buddha."
Practiced mainly in Japan, self-mummification was a grueling process that required a monk to follow a strict 1,000-day diet of nuts and seeds in order to strip the body of fat. A diet of bark and roots would follow for another 1,000 days.  At the end of this period, the monk began drinking a poisonous tea made from the sap of the Japanese varnish tree, normally used to lacquer bowls and plates. The tea caused profuse vomiting as well as a rapid loss of bodily fluids, possibly making the body too poisonous to be eaten by bacteria and insects.
A living skeleton, the monk was then placed in a stone tomb barely larger than his body, which was equipped with an air tube and a bell.
Never moving from the lotus position, the monk would ring the bell each day to let those outside know that he was still alive. When the bell stopped ringing, the monk was presumed dead, the air tube removed and the tomb sealed.

The Suicide Disease - Trigeminal Neuralgia or Tic Douloureux
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) , also known as tic douloureux, is considered by many to be among the most painful of conditions of mankind, and was once labeled the "suicide disease" because of the significant numbers of people taking their own lives before effective treatments were discovered. The disease entity of Trigeminal Neuralgia has been known now for centuries. It is probably one of the worst kinds of pains known to man.
 This is what we do in our sleep.

Brain Eating Zombies of the Day

Diabetes and depression predict dementia risk in people with slowing minds
The latest review paper, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, analysed data from 62 separate studies, following a total of 15,950 people diagnosed with MCI. The study found that among people with MCI, those with diabetes were 65% more likely to progress to dementia and those with psychiatric symptoms were more than twice as likely to develop the condition.
The Alzheimer's Society charity recommends that people stay socially and physically active to help prevent dementia. Their guidelines also suggest eating a diet high in fruit and vegetables and low in meat and saturated fats, such as the Mediterranean diet.
Thereby insuring those patients will continue to decline and not realize the complete bullshit they have been supporting.

Brain Eating Zombie of the Day

What we’re not being told about suicide and depression
These lengthy results, for example, include extensive evidence that involvement in the criminal justice system (such as being on parole or probation) is highly correlated with suicidality, depression, and serious mental illness. Yet Americans are not told that preventing unnecessary involvement with the criminal justice system—for example, marijuana legalization and drug use decriminalization—could well prove to be a more powerful antidote to suicidality, depression, and serious mental illness than medical treatment.

"Shouldn’t researchers be examining American societal and cultural variables that are making so many of us depressed and suicidal?"
You are talking but you're not saying anything.  
You should read some epidemiology and medical history.
Those "variables" (poor nutrition, confinement, lack of health care) were documented as obvious risk factors for communicable and chronic illness long before Koch's Germ Theory of disease... pretty much since the first cities were built.

Swab those peoples noses.
Check their teeth.
Give them decent food, sunshine and vitamin D.

Some Good News for a Change

Blood transfusions show early promise as possible Ebola cure
Although the study is ongoing and the results not yet analyzed, a grin flashes across the face of a doctor leading the trial, Col. Foday Sahr, as he says that 80 percent of the recipients have lived.

The countries really liked the blood option more than the drugs because there is no manufacturer behind it and no international regulatory approvals required.
 yessssss.  very nice.

Good Idea

Tattoo removal may soon be as easy as applying a cream

BLTR tackles the problem from a totally different angle. Instead of the most common laser-removal techniques, Falkenham’s cream utilizes the skin's natural healing processes.  When ink pigments enter the body during a tattoo, they are attacked by and eaten by white blood cells known as “macrophages”.
According to this research, there are two kinds of macrophage at work. One set carries some of the ink’s pigment to the draining lymph nodes, removing it from the area around the new tattoo. The other set, the macrophages which have “eaten” the pigment, bury themselves in your skin to form the visible tattoo.
But over time, the second set – the macrophages that formed the tattoo – are slowly replaced. This is why tattoos fade over the years. The idea behind the removal cream is that the BLTR targets those pigment-carrying macrophages for removal.

Yep Yep Yep

An increased incidence of streptococcal immune activity has been found in Swedish children experiencing narcolepsy after Pandemrix....

Increased β-haemolytic group A streptococcal M6 serotype and streptodornase B-specific cellular immune responses in Swedish narcolepsy cases

β-haemolytic GAS may be involved in triggering autoimmune responses in patients who developed narcolepsy symptoms after vaccination with Pandemrix in Sweden, characterized by a Streptococcus pyogenes M-type-specific IFNγ cellular immune response.

Thanks Sweden.   I love you guys!
Go. Vikings.

Zombie Love

Lovin It

 A Loving Touch
Our experience of loving touch is also deeply influenced by neurobiology. As I explain in my book, Touch: The Science of Hand, Heart and Mind, the skin is endowed with many types of specialized nerve endings that send electrical signals to the spinal cord and brain. Some nerve fibers detect the fine form of objects (these allow you to read Braille with your fingertips—or your lips), some detect cold (as well as menthol, the main active ingredient of mint leaves). Others, central to the development of human culture, sense the minute vibrations conveyed to the hand through tools (the violinist’s bow, the sculptor’s chisel). In recent years, experiments by Hakan Olausson and his colleagues at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden have revealed a type of nerve ending in the skin that is tuned for interpersonal touch.
Pretty sure this is connected to the oxytocin system.   It seems to reward sensory sequences.
Maybe he covers that in the book.

I knew it

Researchers determine existence of 'fat' flavour
In a paper published in the latest issue of Flavour Journal, the researchers with Deakin's newly formed Centre of Advanced Sensory Science have detailed the evidence for fat taste from diverse fields of science including molecular biology, neurobiology and sensory science. They found there is overwhelming evidence for the tongue's ability to detect fat, making it the sixth taste alongside sweet, salt, sour, bitter and umami.
But of course.

One Step Forward

Why cholesterol might not be as bad as you think
The AHA's original report advised lowering cholesterol intake, citing an early study that found that rabbits fed cholesterol and other fats developed blockages in their arteries. It also cited similar studies that led scientists to believe that changing people's diets could help reduce cholesterol in their blood.
Okay, a few things they don't mention in this article-

1.  Notice this directive is not coming from the AHA who are completely invested in this paradigm.
2.  They completely left out the fact that rabbits can't metabolize dietary cholesterol.  It's poison to them.
3.  The shit about Good and Bad cholesterol is complete nonsense.  They just started measuring different things after their data didn't hold up.
4.  They are also recommending LESS meat and more plant material.
5.  And even less salt even though that has been shown to be bogus too.
6.  Cholesterol gets into your bloodstream from microbes living in your arteries.  And every minute you restrict your diet instead of addressing your infections is another minute of your life the American Heart Association has stolen from you.

Have a nice weekend

Neuroscience study points to possible use of medical marijuana for depression
 "Chronic stress is one of the major causes of depression," Haj-Dahmane says. "Using compounds derived from cannabis—marijuana—to restore normal endocannabinoid function could potentially help stabilize moods and ease depression."
"Possible use"?
The depression alleviating effects of marijuana were first documented and recommended about 2000 years ago.  That is not questionable.   Only the mechanism is.

So,  let me tell you how it really works..

Chronic stress is caused by endotoxin leaking out of the intestines and activating the pituitary and adrenal glands.  But that causes mania, not depression.
Depression is triggered by orexin deficiency.   And that cell dysfunction is also triggered by endotoxin.   
They're confusing causes and effects.

Either way, cannabinoids help heal intestinal integrity.

How they Eat Your Brain

Antipsychotic meds prompt zombie-like state among patients
"The proportion that experiences a disturbing side-effect has been estimated at between 50 and 70 per cent, and participants in our study reported on average between six and seven medication side-effects.
"It is difficult for an outsider to appreciate what this means to individual consumers, and how it impacts on their self-image and ability to cope."
Side-effects can include Parkinsonism, akathisia (restlessness) and tardive dyskinesia (involuntary movements), as well as weight gain, hypersomnia, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, dry mouth, constipation and dizziness.
The most profound side-effect is extreme fatigue, which leaves many in a 'zombie state'.

Participants engulfed by hopelessness-
Disturbingly, researchers found participants often exhibited 'a culture of hopelessness' where acceptance was dominant, which they warn can destroy an individual's will to recover.
"The issue here is the extent to which people with a mental illness have been conditioned into accepting the disabling effects of psychotropic medications without protest," Prof Morrison says.
That is not hopelessness.   That is Learned Helplessness, a condition triggered by Psychologists using psychotropic medications to treat Physiological problems.
And we don't actually feel helpless, it's defensive.  We go along with you because you make our lives even more miserable otherwise.

We wouldn't do that if we knew this-
Hopelessness is something else entirely.   It is actually a symptom of Sepsis.   A severe disturbance in the habenula which controls error processing.

Trust me, I listened to this run over and over in my head constantly for three solid weeks -
"You will never be right.
You will always be wrong."
Probably ten thousand times.
And when my sinuses got better it went away.

They are not only not treating the problem, they are allowing acute infections to fester in their Zombie patient pool.

Florida Man


I've been extreme obsessing on my current hypothesis...  wrangling pubmed citations like a maniac... sorry I've been avoiding the blog.

Here's something from the news that sounds familiar...

Malocclusion and dental crowding arose 12,000 years ago with earliest farmers
Hunter-gatherers had almost no malocclusion and dental crowding, and the condition first became common among the world's earliest farmers some 12,000 years ago in Southwest Asia, according to findings published in the journal PLOS ONE.
By analysing the lower jaws and teeth crown dimensions of 292 archaeological skeletons from the Levant, Anatolia and Europe, from between 28,000-6,000 years ago, an international team of scientists have discovered a clear separation between European hunter-gatherers, Near Eastern/Anatolian semi-sedentary hunter-gatherers and transitional farmers, and European farmers, based on the form and structure of their jawbones.
"Our analysis shows that the lower jaws of the world's earliest farmers in the Levant, are not simply smaller versions of those of the predecessor hunter-gatherers, but that the lower jaw underwent a complex series of shape changes commensurate with the transition to agriculture," says Professor Ron Pinhasi from the School of Archaeology and Earth Institute, University College Dublin, the lead author on the study.
 I really doubt this has that much to do with chewing activity.   People also got shorter with the advent of agriculture.    Put that together with smaller mandibles and you probably have Human Growth Hormone deficiency....

The switch in diet changed our hormones.
In the case of hunter-gatherers, the scientists from University College Dublin, Israel Antiquity Authority, and the State University of New York, Buffalo, found a correlation between inter-individual jawbones and dental distances, suggesting an almost "perfect" state of equilibrium between the two. While in the case of semi-sedentary hunter-gatherers and farming groups, they found no such correlation, suggesting that the harmony between the teeth and the jawbone was disrupted with the shift towards agricultural practices and sedentism in the region. This, the international team of scientists say, may be linked to the dietary changes among the different populations.
