Neil DeGrasse Tyson Ripped For Tweet On Mass Shooting Deaths, So He Apologizes. Then This Happens Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a big-picture guy. He is, after all, an astrophysicist and, for the last two decades, he’s been the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City. But he opened up a galaxy-sized can of worms this weekend when he weighed in on the two mass shootings that occurred, one in El Paso, Texas, the other in Dayton, Ohio.
“In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings,” Tyson posted on Twitter. “On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…

300 to the Flu
250 to Suicide
200 to Car Accidents

Dayton, Ohio, gunman had cocaine, alcohol and antidepressants in system: coroner The gunman who carried out a deadly mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio, this month had cocaine and other drugs in his system at the time, a according to a coroner’s report. In a news conference on Thursday the Montgomery County coroner, Dr. Kent Harshbarger, said cocaine, antidepressants and alcohol were found in Connor Betts’ system when he opened fire with an AR-15 style gun in the city’s historic Oregon District on Aug. 4, killing nine people before police shot and killed him. That shooting came just hours after another deadly gun rampage, this time in El Paso, Texas. Harshbarger added that investigators also found a pipe device and a clear bag containing cocaine on the 24-year-old Betts. The coroner also told reporters that two people shot by Betts also were shot by police, but none fatally. He said all the deadly gunshot wounds to the nine victims came from Betts’ weapon.
New link between endocannabinoids and exercise may help in treatment of depression Researchers know exercise improves mood for people with depression, but there are still questions about exactly how it makes people feel better. The answers may be found in the endocannabinoid system. The system is made up of the body’s own naturally occurring cannabinoid molecules and their receptors, said Jacob Meyer, an assistant professor of kinesiology at Iowa State University. Activation of these receptors appears to strengthen connections in the brain and may influence pain and depression. In a new study, Meyer and researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Medical College of Wisconsin and William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital, measured endocannabinoid levels and changes in mood before and after exercise sessions with varying levels of intensity. They found a significant boost in endocannabinoids and improvements in mood following prescribed moderate-intensity exercise.
Newly discovered organ may be lurking under your skin Most people who’ve been jabbed by a needle know the drill: First the pierce, then the sharp, searing pain and an urge to pull away, or at least wince. While the exact circuitry behind this nearly universal reaction is not fully understood, scientists may have just found an important piece of the puzzle: a previously unknown sensory organ inside the skin. Dubbed the nociceptive glio-neural complex, this structure is not quite like the typical picture of a complex organ like the heart or the spleen. Instead, it’s a simple organ made up of a network of cells called glial cells, which are already known to surround and support the body’s nerve cells. In this case, the glial cells form a mesh-like structure between the skin’s outer and inner layers, with filament-like protrusions that extend into the skin’s outer layer. (Also find out about a type of simple organ recently found in humans, called the interstitium.)
CDC: Prescription drug use similar in united states, canada Use of prescription drugs is similar in the United States and Canada, with almost 70 percent of adults aged 40 to 79 years using at least one prescription drug, according to an August data brief published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Center for Health Statistics. Craig M. Hales, M.D., M.P.H., from the National Center for Health Statistics in Hyattsville, Maryland, and colleagues used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and the Canadian Health Measures Survey to describe use of prescription drugs among adults aged 40 to 79 years. The researchers found that in the United States and Canada, 69.0 and 65.5 percent of adults aged 40 to 79 years, respectively, used at least one prescription drug in the past 30 days, and 22.4 and 18.8 percent, respectively, used at least five prescription drugs. The most commonly used drug types among adults aged 40 to 59 years were antidepressants, lipid-lowering drugs, and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors in the United States and analgesics, antidepressants, and lipid-lowering drugs in Canada.
Researchers are working on a pill for loneliness, as studies suggest the condition is worse than obesity The volunteers at the University of Chicago’s Brain Dynamics Laboratory, all otherwise young and healthy, were tied together by really only one thing: nearly off-the-chart scores on the most widely used scale measuring loneliness. Asked how often they felt they had no one they could turn to, how often they felt their relationships seemed superficial and forced, how often they felt alone, left out, isolated or no longer closer to anyone, the answer, almost always, was “always.” The volunteers agreed to be randomly dosed over eight weeks with either pregnenolone, a hormone naturally produced by the body’s adrenal gland, or a placebo. Two hours after swallowing the assigned tablet, the university’s researchers captured and recorded their brain activity while the participants looked at pictures of emotional faces or neutral scenes.
Comment of The Day!
Thank you for reading my question on the air today. Regarding the selenium, I had been on a very small dose of Innate Response(only 100 mcg/day)for several months. My functional medicine doc tested my level which was at 174mcg/L. She told me it was high and pleaded with me to stop taking it as I was poisoning myself. So I stopped. You asked if I was on a detox protocol prior to the mercury removal. I was not. I had just done the silver aloe protocol a few months prior.
Can you please email me the info you gave me on the radio? I was taking notes but you made a lot of recommendations so I couldn’t get it all.
I will resume the Selenium in the dose you recommend because I know that The Power To Heal is Mine!
Thank you so much!

I don’t understand why things look bad. I eat only whole grains, lots of fresh fruits and vegs. The only oil i use is some olive oil and i have organic virgin coconut oil every day either on my oatmeal or on my homemade hot cakes. We eat a little bit of meat, chicken or beef once a week only. I use no other animal products except to make the hotcakes with, i use 1/2 water and 1/2 raw milk in them two times a week.
What am i doing wrong?

TMI: Nearly half of Americans don’t change underwear daily, new survey says These skivvies are skeevy. Nearly half of Americans have worn the same pair of underwear for two or more days, according to a survey by apparel maker Tommy John. Out of 1,000 people responding to an informal poll conducted by the underwear maker, 45% admitted they had worn the same pair of undies for two or more days, with 13% saying they had worn the same pair for a week or more, Tommy John said. “Conventional wisdom — and basic common sense — tells us that we should change our underwear every day, or at least wash them after every wear,” Tommy John said in its statement announcing the results. “But how many people actually follow this golden rule? After surveying 1,000 Americans, we found that this basic standard of underwear hygiene is definitely not universal.”
