Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Genetically modified crops on the market are not only safe, but appear to be good for people and the environment, experts determined in a report released Tuesday. But the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are not just asking people to take their word for it. They’re putting the evidence up on a website so skeptics — and they know there are plenty of them — can check for themselves.
The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine concluded that tinkering with the genetics of what we eat doesn’t produce the “Frankenfood” monster some opponents claim — but it isn’t feeding the world with substantially increased yields, as proponents promised.
The WHO goes back on their word? It’s like the great butter vs. margarine debate all over again! With new studies and research constantly contradicting itself, the results not being repeated, and monetarily driven groups funding said research, one must be so careful about what you read and listen to.
A UN panel that on Tuesday ruled that glyphosate was probably not carcinogenic to humans has now become embroiled in a bitter row about potential conflicts of interests. It has emerged that an institute co-run by the chairman of the UN’s joint meeting on pesticide residues (JMPR) received a six-figure donation from Monsanto, which uses the substance as a core ingredient in its bestselling Roundup weedkiller.
According to the recent statement, “Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup, was found in an international report to be “unlikely” to pose a cancer threat to human who consume it through food.
The World Health Organization and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization published a report Monday contradicting several studies in the last few years, including one by the WHO itself, saying that although exposure to the chemical in other ways may be dangerous, ingesting it orally is likely not carcinogenic.”
But despite growing evidence of the chemical’s potentially dangerous health effects—the pesticide was deemed a “probable human carcinogen” by the World Health Organization last year—efforts to ban the chemical in the U.S. have repeatedly failed.
But on the Hawaiian island of Maui, nearly 5,000 miles from the offices of federal regulators in Washington D.C., a small group of activists have figured out how to use a little-known provision of a federal law to stop some uses of glyphosate in their community.
Is an unruly immune system responsible for dementia? The scientists believe that the neurological decline common to all of the diseases is caused by “auto-inflammation,” where the body’s own immune system develops a persistent inflammatory response that causes brain cells to die.
What’s a few billion between friends? Or enemies? Or added to our credit with China? The Senate is slated to vote Tuesday on three competing plans to battle the virus, with a bipartisan plan that cuts Obama’s $1.9 billion request to $1.1 billion having the greatest chance to advance. The procedural vote would pave the way to add funds for the government’s response to Zika to an unrelated spending bill.
In positive news, American researchers have found that exposing skin to heat from infrared lamps can mimic the effect of antidepressants by stimulating the production of serotonin, the hormone linked to mood regulation. The findings were published May 16 in the journal Jama Psychiatry. Ask RSB to check into his infared sauna next time you’re in town!
A groom in Saudi Arabia filed for divorce minutes after his wedding when his bride refused to put down her cell phone and pay attention to him, local media reported Tuesday. The couple retired to a hotel room following the ceremony, where a relative said the unnamed woman rebuffed the man’s intimate advances. The bride said she wanted to respond to her friends’ texts and other messages congratulating them on their wedding, according to Gulf News.
The case reflects a growing divorce rate among newlyweds in Saudi Arabia, a legal expert told local media. “Misunderstandings, differences in views and the easy approach to marriage without a deep appreciation of the responsibilities are among the major causes for divorce among young people,” Ahmad Al Maabi said. “Marriages are bound to fail when there are no robust foundations or trust.”
Speaking of trust…a Colorado woman is accused of taking two children she was babysitting to a bank robbery – where she was the robber!
HOUR 2 –
Women who decline to get a flu shot during pregnancy are more likely, after they give birth, to ignore guidelines for vaccinating their babies -seems to make sense right? Doctors however are using this as an indicator to educate and encourage vaccinations.
In similar and equally obvious news: Women with early-stage breast cancer for whom chemotherapy was indicated and who used dietary supplements and multiple types of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) were less likely to start chemotherapy
Special Guest: Ian Clark from our friends at Activation!
Activation Products was created from a desire to become healthy by discovering and applying the very best foods and technologies in existence.
Today, Ian talks about recovery AFTER quitting smoking – how to undo the damage. He also discusses skin issues, and even how you can use Oceans Alive for your furry friends!
Oceans Alive Phytoplankton is a unique super-nutrient from the ocean that provides the body with an increase in residual energy that builds up significantly when it is ingested on a daily basis.
Marine Plankton Benefits are attributed to the abundance of naturally produced vitamins, minerals and original life force (absorbed directly from the Sun). Everyone that partakes will enjoy a whole body inner strength that they have never experienced before. Ian Clark has overcome many health challenges to be here and provide options to bring the power back to each and everyone of us as well. The greatest healers have overcome the most insurmountable circumstances, at least as it is described within the annals of official medicine. But what about nutritional medicine? We’ll learn more of Ian’s journey back to health and how it can help us all!
How important is family? A true, nuclear family is something that cannot be replaced. Life happens, and all parents do the best they can, but here is more evidence that children need their mother available, and mother’s can only be available when they have the support of the father.
A mother’s voice may do far more than soothe her child, new research suggests. When moms spoke, several areas of their children’s brains were activated, the researchers reported. These included regions involved in emotion and reward processing, social functions, facial recognition and the detection of what is personally relevant.
