TEDxIowaCity – Dr. Terry Wahls – Minding Your Mitochondria – One Doctor's Recovery from MS

Dr. Terry Wahls learned how to properly fuel her body. Using the lessons she learned at the subcellular level, she used diet to cure her MS and get out of her wheelchair. Shrinking brains are common to Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and MS. Fish oil, creatine and CoQ10 are beneficial in protecting the brain.

Weight Loss Tip 8 – Think Quality of Calories, Not Number

Hey, yet another person has the same philosophy as yours truly! Just maybe there’s some truth in it.
Let’s face it, counting calories or grams of this and that is impractical. It is not very useful when trying to lose weight because not all calories are created equal. A 300-calorie candy bar is not equivalent to a 300-calorie turkey wrap. Your body responds differently to these foods. The sugary candy bar is likely to feed your fat cells, whereas the high-protein wrap will feed muscle, fostering a chain of events that result in a higher metabolism, preserved lean muscle mass, and blood sugar balance. http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2011/12/30/kathy-smith-laws-lean-living.aspx

Another year, another Telstra privacy slip

Telstra, which hasn’t yet gotten over the privacy breach that required 60,000 password resets in December, has suffered another embarrassment involving customer data.
This time, according to Musicfeeds.com.au, the breach involves customer data being posted to a cloud-based spreadsheet service. The site says the data was apparently put on the Editgrid.com site by a consultant in training (apparently and stupidly using live data).
Telstra has said the data was deleted within an hour of the telco becoming aware of the breach, and access to Editgrid.com has been disabled for all staff.
The Sydney Morning Herald today says customers are complaining that they have yet to hear from the Telco, which is already being investigated by the Federal Privacy Commissioner over the earlier breach.
The new data breach includes customers’ contact details and dates of birth, but according to Telstra, no credit information or passwords.
Editgrid appears to be a feast of private information. While the Telstra spreadsheet has been removed, Google has crawled a large number of spreadsheets containing full names, telephone numbers, physical addresses, e-mail details and business information for a host of individuals who probably aren’t aware that their information is published on the site. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/01/01/telstra_data_on_stupid_insecure_cloud_spreadsheet/

‘EM fields initiate the stress response by interacting with electrons moving within DNA’

Electromagnetic (EM) fields have been used therapeutically for accelerated healing and pain control, but they have also been associated with adverse health effects. To understand these biological effects, we have been studying the interaction of low frequency EM fields with cells at both the cellular and molecular levels.
Our studies with cells have shown that 60Hz EM fields induce stress genes and stress response proteins in cells. The stress response is a protective mechanism induced by many potentially harmful environmental stimuli and characterized by the synthesis of specific proteins that assist the renaturation and transport of other proteins. Our studies suggest that EM fields initiate the stress response by interacting with electrons moving within DNA. We have identified a 900 base pair segment associated with the response to EM fields, that when removed eliminates the response, and when transfected into a reporter construct, causes the construct to become EM field responsive.
We have also investigated the mechanism of EM field interactions at the molecular level through effects on three reactions, electron transfer in cytochrome oxidase, ATP hydrolysis by the Na,K-ATPase, and the Belousov-Zhabotinski (BZ) reaction (the catalyzed oxidation of malonic acid). The BZ reaction is studied with ordinary reagents, so there is no problem of impurities as with biological preparations. All three reactions show:
• EM accelerates the reaction rate, i.e., electron transfer rate
• EM competes with the chemical force, so its effect varies inversely with the reaction rate
• Thresholds for interaction are low, comparable to levels found by epidemiology
• Effects vary with frequency, and there are different optima for the reactions studied: ATPase (60Hz), cytochrome oxidase (800Hz), BZ (250Hz)
These properties are consistent with the idea that EM fields affect many biological systems by interacting with electrons moving during redox reactions and also within DNA.

The History of MIT’s Blatant Suppression of Cold Fusion

I am very interested in the events that took place immediately after the birth of Cold Fusion in 1989, when Pons and Fleischmann announced the existence of their technology to the world. Although cold fusion systems at the time were not ready for the market place, they proved the effect was real — a fact the establishment could not allow the public to accept.
Immediately after the announcement was made, the “mainstream” scientific community went on the attack. The late Eugene Mallove was in the middle of it, being employed at MIT in the news office — before resigning in protest of the institution’s misconduct. In a featured article for Infinite Energy Magazine, Mallove detailed exactly what took place that led to his resignation, and the depth of hatred that many professors at MIT had for Pons and Fleischmann’s work. The article titled, “MIT and Cold Fusion: A Special Report” also looks at how the replication performed by the institution’s Plasma Fusion Center actually did produce positive results, how data from the experiment was altered by unknown individuals at least twice, and how the hot fusion scientists in charge of such tests were far too biased to conduct proper research.
