Here’s an ADHD AHA Moment
Banned pregnancy drug tied to ADHD generations later A pregnancy drug banned decades ago may have side effects that linger for generations. Grandchildren of women who took it have an increased risk of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a new study suggests. The drug, a synthetic estrogen known as diethylstilbestrol (DES), was designed to prevent pregnancy complications like miscarriage and preterm delivery. As many as 10 million U.S. women may have used the drug between 1938 and 1971, when it was banned after being linked to vaginal cancers in daughters of women who used it. Now, a new study suggests that grandchildren of women how took DES during pregnancy are 36 percent more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than other kids. And when women took DES during the first trimester of pregnancy, their grandchildren had 63 percent higher odds of developing ADHD, researchers report in JAMA Pediatrics. “An exposure during pregnancy has the potential to impact multiple generations if the fetus is female, because the oocytes (aka egg cells) that will develop into the grandchildren of the pregnant woman grow while their mother is in utero,” said lead study author Marianthi-Anna Kioumourtzoglou of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City.
Special Guest Morley Robbins
Morley M. Robbins (aka. “Magnesium Man”) has a mainstream medical industry background. That’s intriguing when you consider that he is now devoted to promoting natural and preventive health solutions. Morley had been a hospital executive and consultant for 32 years when, several years ago, he developed a condition called “frozen shoulder.” His family doctor quickly recommended surgery as the only hope for Morley if he wanted to be able to lift his right hand above his waist ever again. Friends who owned a health food store intervened and encouraged Morley to try chiropractic care. His initial response: “Thanks guys, but I don’t do witchcraft.” Several months later, the pain was wearing on him, and his friends insisted. It only took a couple weeks of “light touch chiropractic care” (Network Spinal Analysis) before his shoulder had full range of motion once again. The experience was so life-changing for Morley, he questioned everything he knew — or thought he knew — about healing. He left the world of hospital administration and became a Wellness Coach.
TOO MUCH IRON MAY ACT LIKE RUST IN THE BRAIN, IS LINKED TO ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE Scientists and doctors already knew that Alzheimer’s disease patients show a buildup of amyloid protein in the brain. Now high levels of iron are also associated with Alzheimer’s, new researchpublished online in Scientific Reports confirmed, identifying the specific iron that forms in patients with the disease. This suggests that rusting of the brain is a factor in the disease, and addressing this excess iron could be an effective treatment option. For the study, a team of researchers led by Lucia Bossoni from the Leiden Institute of Physics and Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands used a series of medical tests to look at metal in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients and in controls without the disease. Exam results revealed that Alzheimer’s disease patients had higher amounts of iron in their brains. Specifically, iron concentration in the mineral ferrihydrite was higher in the group of Alzheimer’s patients than in the control group, a press release on the study reported. The study also identified that this excessive iron was associated with the Braak stage of Alzheimer’s disease, a particularly advanced stage of the illness.
This Is One Ticked Off Kid…
Texas girl thanks police for pulling over mother A Texas police department shared a letter of appreciation from a disgruntled child thanking them for pulling her mother over. The Fulshear Police Department said on Facebook that students at Huggins Elementary School wrote letters to the department for Police Week and one note from a young girl stood out from the crowd. The letter, addressed to “Fulshear Police Officer,” featured the student listing her grievances against her mother.
The letter reads:
“Dear Fulshear Police Officer,Thank you for pulling my mom over because she deserved it because she took my phone away and I did not like it. And how she always brags about how good of a driver she is. And it just annoys me. And how that one time she got pulled over because she did not have a ezsticker on her window and when she came home and told me that I just laughed. And I also remember that time when one of my mom’s back lights weren’t working and she got pulled over.”
“Love the (sometimes brutal) honesty of Elementary students,” the department tweeted.

Humans causing cancer in animals through plastic waste Animals are developing cancer due to ‘significant’ changes in the environment caused by humans, scientists claim. Pollution in oceans, radiation from power plants and pesticides from farms may be causing wild animals to develop tumours, according to experts from Arizona State University. Light pollution and animals eating human food from rubbish may also be driving the disease, they add. Previous research suggests cancer affects all animal species, from facial tumours in Tasmanian devils to melanoma in wild fish. Dogs and even clams can also be affected by the disease. Researcher Tuul Sepp, from Arizona State University, said: ‘We know that some viruses can cause cancer in humans by changing the environment that they live in – in their case, human cells – to make it more suitable for themselves. Basically, we are doing the same thing. ‘We are changing the environment to be more suitable for ourselves, while these changes are having a negative impact on many species on many different levels, including the probability of developing cancer.’
NFL owners approve new national anthem policy NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer, it was announced Wednesday. The policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other team personnel do not show respect for the anthem. That includes any attempt to sit or kneel, as dozens of players have done during the past two seasons to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Those teams also will have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction. “We want people to be respectful of the national anthem,” commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We want people to stand — that’s all personnel — and make sure they treat this moment in a respectful fashion. That’s something we think we owe. [But] we were also very sensitive to give players choices.”
Death of CDC worker who drowned ruled a suicide Authorities say the death of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employee whose body was found in a river in Atlanta has been ruled a suicide. Fulton County chief medical examiner Dr. Jan Gorniak said Tuesday that Timothy Cunningham’s death was a suicide by drowning. Gorniak said there also was evidence that the 35-year-old epidemiologist had used marijuana but that that was not a contributing factor in his death. Cunningham worked at the Atlanta-based CDC. He disappeared Feb. 12. His family reported him missing on Feb. 16 after going to his home and finding his belongings and vehicle there. Authorities said fishermen found Cunningham’s body April 3 partially submerged in water and mud on the west bank of the Chattahoochee River.
Condoms required at Scouts’ 24th World Jamboree The Boy Scouts have decided to accept people who identify as gay and lesbian among their ranks. And girls are welcome now, too, into the iconic organization, which has renamed itself Scouts BSA. So what’s next? A mandate that condoms be made available to “all participants” of its global gathering. It’s among the demands of the World Scout Committee for any host country of a World Scout Jamboree. That would include the 24th World Scout Jamboree, scheduled July 21-Aug. 1, 2019, in West Virginia. The Scouts say: “For the first time, a world jamboree will be hosted by three national Scout organizations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. These three distinct cultures will join together to host the world Scouting community in a celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship.” With condoms.
Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades At the age of 46, DeWayne Johnson is not ready to die. But with cancer spread through most of his body, doctors say he probably has just months to live. Now Johnson, a husband and father of three in California, hopes to survive long enough to make Monsanto take the blame for his fate. On 18 June, Johnson will become the first person to take the global seed and chemical company to trial on allegations that it has spent decades hiding the cancer-causing dangers of its popular Roundup herbicide products – and his case has just received a major boost. Last week Judge Curtis Karnow issued an order clearing the way for jurors to consider not just scientific evidence related to what caused Johnson’s cancer, but allegations that Monsanto suppressed evidence of the risks of its weed killing products. Karnow ruled that the trial will proceed and a jury would be allowed to consider possible punitive damages.
