    Herbal Oil Making— Take a herb of choice—rosemary for example—add ¼ cup of the rosemary and add 1 cup to a cup ¼ of alcohol—add both contents to a blender and blend at high speed for 10 minutes—Strain this and add to a pot—set the heat up to med-high range and add 1 tablespoon of water to it—allow it to boil out the excess water til it gets below half—then pour this into either a glass container or another container and put on top of either a metal plate over the burner or metal pot and allow it to further simmer down to a point where you see the oil—this will then be placed in a glass container—what you have done is concentrate the components of the herb into an oil utilizing this in drop amounts instead of high volume—so in this case all the properties of the rosemary are all super concentrated and will need considerably less—this will actually potentiate those components even more

    Salicyclic Gel Making- Take a Salicyclic powder or use aspirin ( clean without additives) and powder it down and get TSP as well and water—what we are going to do is use this in this formulation 10 grams of salicyclic acid 30 grams of TSP and 2 0z of water ( or you can double it to make the solution more in volume—20 grams of the sal/60 grams of the TSP/ and 100 grams of water—once mixed and dissolved the you will add 20 drops of lugols ( 15%) if you only have 5-7% then triple the drops or double to make it as strong as you desire— add 1/ cup of aloe vera gel 0r juice add 1 tsp of xanthium gum ( more or less this is just a guideline) and citric acid 1 tsp ( again a guideline add more or less as you see fit )then add ¼ cup of the solution you just made and blend til thicken— when done pour into a glass container.
     
    Application—apply to areas of lesions and or wounds and will see a regeneration of the tissue or skin health—it will hydrate and disinfect an area and act like a bandaid in sealing and protecting from further exposure to pathogens—can be used for eczema and a germicidal—

    Soy-Based Formula- Neonatal Plant Estrogen Exposure Leads to Adult Infertility in Female Mice
    ScienceDaily (May 2, 2012) — A paper published May 2 in Biology of Reproduction describes the effects of brief prenatal exposure to plant estrogens on the mouse oviduct, modeling the effects of soy-based baby formula on human infants. The results suggest that exposure to estrogenic chemicals in the womb or during childhood has the potential to affect a woman’s fertility as an adult, possibly providing the mechanistic basis for some cases of unexplained female infertility.[U1] Earlier research suggested that neonatal exposure to plant estrogens or other environmental estrogens (synthetic substances that function similarly to the estrogen naturally produced in the body) may have long- term effects on adult female reproductive health. Wendy N. Jefferson, a researcher in the lab of Carmen J. Williams at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health, previously demonstrated that neonatal exposure to the plant estrogen genistein results in complete infertility in female adult mice. Causes of infertility included failure to ovulate, reduced ability of the oviduct to support embryo development before implantation, and failure of the uterus to support effective implantation of blastocyst-stage embryos.—The team now reports that neonatal exposure to genistein changes the level of immune response in the mouse oviduct, known as mucosal immune response. Some of the immune response genes were altered beginning from the time of genistein treatment, while others were altered much later, when the mouse was in early pregnancy. Together, those changes led to harmfully altered immune responses and to compromised oviduct support for preimplantation embryo development, both of which would likely contribute to infertility.[U2]—These findings raise the possibility that exposure to low levels of environmental or plant estrogens during sensitive developmental windows can alter the balance of the mucosal immune response in the uterus and oviduct.[U3] In the mouse, the window of development during which these changes can occur is found only in the neonatal period; in humans, development of the reproductive tract continues through the onset of puberty. Therefore, estrogenic chemical exposure to the female fetus, infant, child, and adolescent all have potential impacts on mucosal immunity in the reproductive tract and, therefore, on adult fertility. The authors present the view that limiting such exposures, including minimizing use of soy-based baby formula, is a step toward maintaining female reproductive health.–Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Society for the Study of Reproduction. –Journal Reference-Jefferson WN, Padilla-Banks E, Phelps JY, Cantor AM, Williams CJ.

    Glycogen Accumulation in Neurons Causes Brain Damage and Shortens the Lives of Flies and Mice
    ScienceDaily (May 2, 2012) — Collaborative research by groups headed by scientists Joan J. Guinovart and Marco Milán at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) has revealed conclusive evidence about the harmful effects of the accumulation of glucose chains (glycogen) in fly and mouse neurons. These two animal models will allow scientists to address the genes involved in this harmful process and to find pharmacological solutions that allow disintegration of the accumulations or limitation of glycogen production.—Advances in this direction would make a significant contribution to investigation into Lafora progressive myoclonic epilepsy and other neurodegenerative diseases characterized by glycogen accumulation in neurons. The journal EMBO Molecular Medicine publishes the results of the study this week.—“Our data clearly indicate that glycogen accumulation alone kills neurons and thus dramatically reduces lifespan,” explains Guinovart, an expert in glycogen metabolism, group leader at IRB Barcelona, and senior professor at the University of Barcelona, “because the only thing we have manipulated in the neurons is their capacity to produce glycogen.”—The inclusion of the Drosophila fly in the study provides in vivo confirmation of the theory in another animal model as these flies also show the same symptoms of degeneration as mice when glycogen accumulates in neurons. However, in addition the use of Drosophila will speed upobtaining genetic data and the screening of therapeutic molecules. “In a short time we will be able to perform a massive search for genes involved in the pathological process and to understand it better at the molecular level,” emphasizes Marco Milán, ICREA researcher at IRB Barcelona and a specialist in Drosophila. “But the flies will also be useful to identify pharmacological molecules that can cure,” he explains.—The IRB Barcelona teams are designing several experiments to identify the possible therapeutic targets that may be useful to prevent glycogen accumulation in neurons. In addition to the direct relation to Lafora epilepsy, a progressive degenerative disease that affects adolescents and has no cure, glycogen accumulation could be the main cause of other neurodegenerative illnesses such as Adult polyglucosan body disease and Andersen’s disease.–Story Source–The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Institute for Research in Biomedicine-IRB, via AlphaGalileo. –Journal Reference–Jordi Duran, María Florencia Tevy, Mar Garcia-Rocha, Joaquim Calbó, Marco Milán, Joan J.

    Enhanced Glucose Transport
    Pyritinol’s ability to enhance glucose transport through the blood-brain barrier when it is low is a highly significant benefit of Pyritinol. Although the brain is usually less than 2% of total bodyweight, the brain must produce and use about 20% – 500 calories per day – of the body’s total energy production. And under normal, non-fasting conditions, the brain can only ‘burn’ glucose (sugar) for fuel. Unlike virtually all other body cells, nerve cells cannot use fat as an energy fuel. Brain cells also cannot store any significant amount of glucose – they are completely dependent upon a continuous delivery of glucose from the blood, through the blood-brain barrier. Thus, brain glucose uptake is a major rate-limiting factor for crucial brain energy production. Low cerebral glucose uptake necessarily translates into low brain carbohydrate energy metabolism.–And brain energy metabolism is so important to optimal, healthy brain function that “… brain carbohydrate metabolism is impaired in a variety of dementias [e.g. Alzheimer’s, stroke, metabolic, or drug toxicity dementias] and … the degree of reduction in brain carbohydrate metabolism is correlated with the severity of the dementias ….” (7) Pyritinol is good for optimal brain carbohydrate metabolism , and what is good for brain carbohydrate metabolism is good for the brain and the mind!

    Millions of Bees Mysteriously Die in Florida
    MICCO, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) – Florida officials are abuzz as to how millions of honey bees were killed in Brevard County.—Several beekeepers in the county have reported lost colonies this week. Charles Smith of Smith Family Honey Company told Stuart News Thursday he lost 400 beehives. He says the bees appeared to have been poisoned.–“I’ll never get completely compensated for this unless someone handed me 400 beehives,” Smith told Stuart News. “I lost the bees, the ability to make honey and the ability to sell the bees.”—Smith told Florida Today that he lost $150,000 from the incident.–State officials are testing the bees to determine what type of chemicals contributed to their deaths.–Experts say pesticides might be behind the lost beehives.—“The fact that it was so widespread and so rapid, I think you can pretty much rule out disease,” Bill Kern, an entomologist with the University of Florida’s Research and Education Center, told Florida Today. “It happened essentially almost in one day. Usually diseases affect adults or the brood, you don’t have something that kills them both.”—The case in Micco, 18 miles south of Melbourne, is being investigated by state agriculture officials and the sheriff’s office.

    12 milion bees found dead in Florida and no one knows why!
    Authorities have already ruled out disease, including the infamous “Colony Collapse Disorder” (CCD), as the cause of a recent honeybee holocaust that took place in Brevard County, Florida. The UK’s Daily Mail reports that up to 12 million bees from roughly 800 apiaries in the area all dropped dead at roughly the same time around September 26 — and local beekeepers say pesticides are likely to blame. CCD is the term often used to describe the inexplicable mass die-off of honeybees around the world, which typically involves honeybees leaving their hives and, for whatever reason, never finding their way back home[U1]. Mass die-offs associated with CCD often occur at seemingly random locations around the world, and typically involve a gradual process of disappearance and eventual colony collapse — and the dead bees are typically nowhere to be found. But the recent Florida event involved hundreds of colonies from 30 different sites in a one-and-a-half mile radius literally dropping dead all at the same time and leaving their carcasses behind, which is why authorities have dismissed CCD as the cause. Based on the appearance of the dead bees, as well as the synchronous timing of their deaths, pesticide sprayings appear to be the culprit in this case. “I’m a pretty tough guy, but it is heart wrenching,” said Charles Smith of Smith Family Honey Company to News 13 in Orlando. His family’s company lost an estimated $150,000 worth of bees in the recent die-off. “Not only is it a monetary loss here, but we work really hard on these bees to keep them in good health.” The Florida die-off coincides with a recent county-wide mosquito eradication effort, during which helicopters flew over various parts of the county and sprayed airborne pesticides. Officials, of course, deny that this taxpayer-funded spraying initiative had anything to do with the bee genocide, though. “The fact that it was so widespread and so rapid, I think you can pretty much rule out disease,” said Bill Kern, an entomologist from the University of Florida (UF) toFlorida Today. “It happened essentially almost in one day. Usually diseases affect adults or the brood, you don’t have something that kills them both.”[U2] Many of the beekeepers who lost their hives in the mass killing raised their bees to sell to American farmers, who then used them to pollinate food crops. Because of their massive losses, many of these beekeepers could end up losing their entire beekeeping businesses.

    Higher Risk of Birth Defects from Assisted Reproduction
    A University of Adelaide study has identified the risk of major birth defects associated with different types of assisted reproductive technology. —ScienceDaily (May 5, 2012) — A University of Adelaide study has identified the risk of major birth defects associated with different types of assisted reproductive technology.—In the most comprehensive study of its kind in the world, researchers from the University’s Robinson Institute have compared the risk of major birth defects for each of the reproductive therapies commonly available internationally, such as: IVF (in vitro fertilization), ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) and ovulation induction. They also compared the risk of birth defects after fresh and frozen embryo transfer.–The results are being published May 5 in the New England Journal of Medicine, and presented in Barcelona, Spain at the World Congress on Building Consensus in Gynecology, Infertility and Perinatology.–“While assisted reproductive technologies are associated with an increased risk of major birth defects overall, we found significant differences in risk between available treatments,” says the lead author of the study, Associate Professor Michael Davies from the University of Adelaide’s Robinson Institute and School of Paediatrics and Reproductive Health.–Researchers linked a census of more than 6100 assisted reproductive technology births in South Australia to a registry of more than 300,000 births and 18,000 birth defects. They compared risks of birth defects across all infertility treatments to pregnancies in women with no record of infertility. They also compared successive pregnancies for women.–Previous studies have identified an increased risk of birth defects associated with infertility treatment, but this is the first study to compare all forms of available treatment. This is also the first study to compare pregnancies within women by the treatments received.–“The unadjusted risk of any birth defect in pregnancies involving assisted conception was 8.3% (513 defects), compared with 5.8% for pregnancies not involving assisted conception (17,546 defects),” Associate Professor Davies says.–“The risk of birth defects for IVF was 7.2% (165 birth defects); and the rate for ICSI was higher at 9.9% (139 defects).-“A history of infertility, either with or without assisted conception, was also significantly associated with birth defects. While factors associated with the causes of infertility explained the excess risk associated with IVF, the increased risk for a number of other treatments could not readily be explained by patient factors. ICSI, for instance, had a 57% increase in the odds of major defect, although the absolute size of the risk remained relatively small,” he says.—Associate Professor Davies says cryopreservation (freezing) of embryos was associated with a substantially reduced risk of birth defects, particularly for ICSI. “This may be due to developmentally compromised embryos failing to survive the freeze/thaw process,” he says.——Also of concern was the tripling of risk in women using clomiphene citrate to stimulate ovulation outside of a closely supervised clinical setting.—“While confined to a small group in our study, this is of particular concern as clomiphene citrate is now very widely available at low cost, and may easily be used contrary to manufacturers’ very specific instructions to avoid use if pregnant, as it may cause fetal malformations. This aspect of the study will need additional confirmation from future research,” Associate Professor Davies says.—He says the study now needs to be expanded to include more recent years of treatment, as the reproductive technologies have undergone continual innovation which may influence the associated risks of treatment.
    Background———World wide, more than 3.7 million babies are born annually as a result of assisted reproductive technology.—Assisted reproduction is usually invasive, expensive, and deals with matters of intense emotional content.—There are several areas of public health interest.
    These include:
    Risks associated with multiple embryo transfer
    Risks to the health of the offspring as a result of treatment
    Patient mental health as a result of treatment
    Long-term social functioning of the offspring born as a result of assisted reproduction.

    Menthol Suppresses Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor Functioning in Sensory Neurons via Allosteric Modulation.

    Abstract
    In this study, we have investigated how the function of native and recombinant nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) is modulated by the monoterpenoid alcohol from peppermint (-) menthol. In trigeminal neurons (TG), we found that nicotine (75 μM)-activated whole-cell currents through nAChRs were reversibly reduced by menthol in a concentration-dependent manner with an IC(50) of 111 μM. To analyze the mechanism underlying menthol’s action in more detail, we used single channel and whole-cell recordings from recombinant human α4β2 nAChR expressed in HEK tsA201 cells. Here, we found a shortening of channel open time and a prolongation of channel closed time, and an increase in single channel amplitude leading in summary to a reduction in single channel current. Furthermore, menthol did not affect nicotine’s EC(50) value for currents through recombinant human α4β2 nAChRs but caused a significant reduction in nicotine’s efficacy. Taken together, these findings indicate that menthol is a negative allosteric modulator of nAChRs

    Benefits of Red Meat
    It was reporting on the latest meat-eating health scare, which was generated by a paper published in the US Archives of Internal Medicine.—US meat is not grass fed –as the European meat is
    The article continued in a similar vein about how if you ate more than a certain amount of red meat you’d die early but if you ate different sources of protein instead you wouldn’t. It begs the question: How you would know if you’d died earlier than you might otherwise have done? It even said: “Nuts were said to reduce the risk of dying by 20%.” Surely that did not intend to imply that some people who ate nuts would not die at all?—The Times’ journalist’s suggestion that roast beef should be swapped for nut roast may not be such a great idea for those wishing to control their calorie intake when lean beef has fewer calories than nut roast.
    Healthy combination–Moreover, only about 50% of the fat in beef is saturated and half of that is stearic acid, which is rapidly converted in the body to oleic acid, which is a monounsaturated fat. That, together with another fatty acid constituent of beef fat, palmitic acid, is believed to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. The rest of the fat in beef fat is monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. So, altogether, we have a rather healthy combination. It is a similar story for lamb fat.—All meat lovers should rejoice, particularly if they are eating grass-fed beef or lamb. Apart from having the healthiest fat composition, they also contain healthy proportions of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids.[U1] Most British beef and lamb are grass-fed but in the US where the paper referred to at the beginning of this article was written most animals are not grass fed.
    Heart disease—-Research at Ohio State University has reported that people whose diets contain too much omega-6 are more susceptible to a range of degenerative diseases, including heart disease. Polyunsaturated fats in vegetable oils contain high levels of omega-6 so, if the Ohio research stands, replacing animal with vegetable fats in the diet is not necessarily the best option.—The information on that composition is contained in Jennifer McLagan’s book: Fat, an appreciation of a misunderstood ingredient. I always turn to it for advice to balance the anti-meat stories, particularly those relating to diet and health.—The chemical composition of fat in meat is a matter of fact from which you can form your own opinion when people tell you that fat in meat is unhealthy compared with vegetable oil.

    Dr Oz belly blasting segment prompts sales ‘explosion’ for 7-Keto
    Sales of 7-Keto have exploded following a mention on the Dr Oz show in February, with brand owner Humanetics Corp “on track to post triple digit gains this year” for the fat-burning ingredient, should current sales trends continue.—While 7-Keto has been growing steadily since its launch in 1998 – Humanetics has struck licensing deals with more than 100 firms that now use it in dietary supplements – sales have “caught fire” since it featured in a ‘belly blasting’ segment on Dr Oz, said NutraBridge president Scott Steil.—There are still snake oil merchants out there—-Steil, who promotes 7-Keto on behalf of Humanetics, said Dr Oz had introduced 7-Keto to a new wave of consumers as well as reminding those already familiar with it that it is one of the few weight management ingredients supported by strong human clinical data in a market that has been plagued by its fair share of snake oil merchants.[U2]–He added: “There are still snake oil merchants out there. But we’ve seen a few of them hit pretty badly recently and people are beginning to realize that if you want to play in this market, you’ve got to do it right.[U3]—“I’d say the weight management category is probably the most dynamic it’s been for four or five years, but what’s interesting is that it’s not the latest and greatest thing that’s driving it at the moment, but more established products.—“We’ve seen the FDA and the FTC crack down on companies making unsubstantiated claims as well as several class action lawsuits. But I think Dr Oz has also helped raise awareness about legitimate weight loss ingredients[U4]. He talks a lot about weight management and he doesn’t recommend products that are in what I’d call the borderline or the greyzone.”—NDI guidance and weight loss ingredients—Similarly, the current debate over the NDI draft guidance was focusing minds on which ingredients have gone through the necessary regulatory approvals to be used in dietary supplements, said Steil.–He added: “There are probably more than 40 ingredients that fall into the weight loss category and many of them that should have gone through the NDI (new dietary ingredient) notification process, have not done so.”Humanetics submitted two NDI notifications for 7-Keto in 1997 and 2002 received no objections from the FDA.[U5] –[U6]However, speaking at a public hearing about the NDI process in November 2004, its chief medical and scientific officer Dr John Zenk said he and others in the room could all think of several ingredients that “would be considered new dietary ingredients for which no pre-market notification has been filed”.—What is 7-Keto?–A metabolite of DHEA that is found naturally in the body and “declines dramatically as we age”, says Steil, “7-Keto increases the activity of fat-burning enzymes and increases metabolism without the use of stimulants.–“By the time you reach 40, you’ve lost 50% of your normal 7-Keto levels and by 60 you’ve lost 70-75%, so you can benefit from taking 7-Keto from around your 30s onwards,” he claimed.—“But we also know that anyone that goes on a calorie-restricted diet will also benefit as your body responds to calorie restriction by slowing down your metabolism.[U7] Taking 7-Keto effectively eliminates this effect so your diet can be totally effective.”—Humanetics has filed a suite of patents around 7-Keto since the early 1990s in areas including immune modulation and weight management, and has also invested a significant sum in human clinical data to support its claimed effects, said Steil.—“We’ve got 11 human clinical studies looking at 7-Keto alone or in combination with other ingredients. They have repeatedly shown that people on diet and exercise programs taking 7-Keto lose three times more weight than those on the same program taking a placebo.”[U8]
    Beyond weight management?
    Right now, Humanetics has its “hands full with weight management”, said Steil. However, it is also exploring some other indications for 7-Keto.—“When it comes to weight loss, we have proved its efficacy again and again, but looking at the mechanism of action beyond its effect on fat burning enzymes could open up some new areas of opportunity. How does it affect neurotransmitters in the brain, for example?”

    Mothers are threatened with criminal charges, but will continue openly defying MDA; and a farmer is criminally charged for providing fresh food to mothers.
    —Several Minnesota moms who facilitate access to local farm food are planning to act despite the risk of criminal charges laid out in warnings from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA).–The MDA has threatened several of them, and has already conducted investigations against them. The letters warn that if they continue helping provide fresh food to their friends and neighbors, the MDA will press criminal charges and prosecute. The MDA holds that the mothers are violating food-handling regulations.[U9]–Here, Melinda Olsen discusses the ordeal in detail – she only helps the farmer for free by storing goods in her garage for others. No commerce. Yet, she is ominously threatened by MDA for food crimes. —-Dozens in the Minneapolis area are disgusted at the MDA’s overly aggressive tactics and are expected to join in the civil disobedience as their natural right to food access. Hundreds of supporters are expected at the rally, below.-Melinda Olson is a mom who received one such MDA warning letter, and said–It is absolutely outrageous that during this time of economic crisis our state government is investigating and sending warning letters to mothers and putting farmers on trial who are helping provide communities with fresh foods. It is my right to contract privately with a farmer for the food of my choice just as it is the right of every American. —The MDA’s harassment against mothers will not work. We plan to ignore this warning and continue operating as we are.[U10] MDA should not waste taxpayer money investigating, prosecuting and jailing peaceful farmers and mothers for helping their communities secure fresh foods. Our time to stand up against this tyranny is now!—Additionally, the MDA has brought charges against two local farmers for supplying their communities with fresh foods. Mothers who rely on the food and delivery service of one of these farmers, Alvin Schlangen, are facing loss of their food supply if Schlangen ends up jailed as warned by MDA. Among his four misdemeanor charges for providing the food? Handling food without a permit-Mislabeling food-Handling unprocessed, fresh milk; a crime, according to the MDA—You can read more about their plight – here—Minnesota Food Freedom Rally Detail—Customers and supporters from around the state and country have planned a rally for Schlangen on the first day of his criminal trial on Monday, May 14 at 7:00 a.m. outside the Minneapolis courthouse. Supporters will sign a “Declaration of Food Independence” and demonstrate non-compliance against what they deem “unjust” regulations. The Rally is followed by a peaceful sit-in of Alvin’s trial at 9:00 a.m., Hennepin County Government Center 300 S. 6th Street, Minneapolis, MN, 55487. An important workshop will take place on May 13th. More event details including “Know Your Rights” Mother’s day workshop and speakers, can be found at Raw Milk Freedom Riders.
    This is a Test – The Time to Nip The War on Fresh Food Access is Now!
    The show host in the first video makes the point that if these agencies are to be consistent, then it would mean shutting down church drives and other outreaches. And that’s just what will happen if we allow these attacks – it is happening. We’re not even allowed to feed a hungry person for free – and it’s all about power over, not a sincere attempt at public safety. These actions are not based on legitimate complaints, but blind adherence to regulation, created for the purpose of force and not tempered with any empathy.—If we allow these power hungry brutes to run over moms and small farmers now, any shred of hope for our basic food rights will be snatched from our plates for good. Do we want to be called criminals and become imprisoned for giving our neighbors some bread?-Just like the Amish men who said “We’re just not going to pay,” the key to a real power shift appears to be non-acquiescence. Just as in their case; it is bad, arbitrary laws, edicts, and mandates that must change when enough people say “Enough!” We do not acknowledge their puffed up authority in matters of our natural right to the foods we choose.

    Abstract
    A chemical investigation of plant Satureja hortensis L. – garden savory (GS) has been carried out. It is established that the GS is rich in phenolic compounds. Flavonoids apigenin, luteolin, cinaroside, luteolin-glucuronide, luteolin-rutinoside[U11], isoroifolin and phenylcarbonic acids – chlorogenic acid and rosmarinic acid were isolated from the leaves of the plant. The total content of flavonoids and phenylcarbonic acids in GS is 1,6-1,7%. The leaves of GS contain up to 1% essential oil consisting mainly of thymol and methyl carvacrol. Dry aqueous extract of GS leaves, which retains the full range of substances of raw plant material has been obtained. Pharmacological investigation of the GS extract was carried out on intact animals and animals with experimental alloxan diabetes. Antidiabetic Arfasetine was chosen as a reference drug. The study revealed that the GS extract exhibits hypoglycemic activity significantly reducing blood sugar levels and is safe in the long run. Drug dosage form named saturin – capsules containing 0,33 g [U12]of dried aqueous extract of GS leaves, has been developed. Clinical trials of Saturin confirmed its effiacy in diabetes mellitus type 2. The drug is registered by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Social Welfare of Georgia (Registration Certificate №003658) and approved for use in type 2 diabetes either independently or in combination with other hypoglycemic agents. Saturin is manufactured at the Experimental and Production Facility of the Institute of Pharmacochemistry.

    Abstract—AIM OF THE STUDY–Satureja montana (winter savory) is a medicinal plant traditionally used to treat different disorders including male sexual dysfunction. In this study we evaluated the effect of Satureja montana hydroalcoholic extract on copulatory behavior of sexually potent male rats.
    MATERIALS AND METHODS:
    The extract was orally administered acutely or repetitively for 8 consecutive days at the doses of 25 and 50 mg/kg. The main parameters of sexual behavior, mount (ML), intromission (IL), ejaculation (EL) latencies and post-ejaculatory interval (PEI), were evaluated in animals submitted to mating test and multiple ejaculations test. Testosterone serum levels were measured in rats acutely treated with Satureja montana extract dosed at 50 mg/kg[U13]. In addition the open field test was conducted to evaluate the locomotor behavior.
    RESULTS:
    When acutely administered at both dosages, the extract was able to significantly increase EL and decrease intromission frequency (IF) in comparison with controls. The significant increase in EL was found also when the extract was subacutely administered, daily for 8 consecutive days, at the dose of 25 mg/kg. In the multiple ejaculations test, EL values of treated rats were significantly increased during the 1st and 2nd sequence in comparison with controls; in addition only rats treated with the extract were able to reach the 4th ejaculation within 30 min. Testosterone serum level measured in rats acutely treated with Satureja montana at the dose of 50 mg/kg was significantly increased in rats in comparison with controls. Finally, the locomotor activity recorded in the open field test was not affected by the acute administration of the plant extract.
    CONCLUSIONS:
    These data suggest that Satureja montana could be considered as a natural remedy for the treatment of premature ejaculation delaying ejaculation latency without exerting any negative effect on the other parameters of sexual behavior and without exerting a sedative effect. In addition the increased serum level of testosterone confirms the positive influence of Satureja montana on male sexual function.
    Recipe —the simplest way to do this would be to make a extract/tincture—by using the jar blender method—using a blender end or bottom –add your herb ( savoury ) inside and seal the jar with the blade attachment- then once pulverized then add your clean and or clear alcohol an blend it for about 10 Min+ and then strain half and put into 2 separate jars—the one you will add to a pot to boil down about half the other keep just in case there is an error—when done strain then add to pot and allow to boil add water about a tablespoon and when it gets down to a point of half stop stove—take the content of the pot add to a glass jar—add on top of the metal that will diffuse—–this will further extract out the water and will get a super concentrate and will need at this point 1-2 drops

    Increasing Predator-Friendly Land Can Help Farmers Reduce Costs
     
    Having large tracts of natural habitat surrounding fields increase ladybug populations and help farmers reduce insecticide use—-ScienceDaily (May 11, 2012) — Having natural habitat in farming areas that supports ladybugs could help increase their abundance in crops where they control pests and help farmers reduce their costs, says a Michigan State University study.—Ladybugs and other predatory insects eat crop pests, saving farmers an estimated $4.6 billion a year on insecticides. Non-crop plants provide these predatory insects with food and shelter, helping them to survive and thrive in areas where they are needed. In an attempt to increase benefits from predatory insects, researchers have often planted strips of flowers along the edges of crop fields[U1]. –However, natural habitats also provide vital food and shelter resources and may be more important for pest control, said Megan Woltz, MSU doctoral student and co-author of the study that appears in the current issue of Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment.–“Creating predator-attracting habitats next to crops is only a partial solution,” said Woltz, who co-authored the study with MSU entomologists Doug Landis and Rufus Isaacs. “Ladybugs and many other pest-eating insects travel long distances throughout the growing season, sometimes flying or crawling over many miles as they search for food and shelter. So we also have to consider what resources are available to these predators at larger scales.”–Ladybugs are heralded as a natural, effective killer of soybean aphids, the most-destructive soybean pest in the northern United States. To determine the best way to attract ladybugs to soybean fields, researchers planted buckwheat strips next to soybean fields and also examined the amount of natural habitat within 1.5 miles of the fields.—“Ladybugs loved our buckwheat strips,” Woltz said. “We always found way more ladybugs in the buckwheat than are usually in field edges. Unfortunately, all of the ladybugs in the buckwheat did little to change their populations in the soybean fields.”—Ultimately, natural habitat proved to be more important. The amount of grasslands and forests within 1.5 miles of the soybean fields determined how many ladybugs ended up in the field, she added.—Such large areas typically encompass multiple farms, suggesting that rural neighbors may need to work together. In other studies, landscapes with at least 20 percent of non-crop habitat showed good pest control. Providing some habitat on every farm and the properties that surround them would add up to a lot of habitat at the landscape scale — the scale that matters to ladybugs.—Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Michigan State University. –Journal Reference-J.

    Sustainable Agriculture: Perennial Plants Produce More; Landscape Diversity Creates Habitat For Pest Enemies
     
    ScienceDaily (Aug. 4, 2009) — Advances in ecology increasingly reveal that conventional agricultural practices have detrimental effects on the landscape ecology, creating problems for long-term sustainability of crops. In a series of sessions at the Ecological Society of America’s Annual Meeting, ecologists will present their ideas on how our agricultural practices can take lessons from natural environments.
    Perennial plants produce more, require less input than annual croplands—–The major crops used globally to feed people and livestock – wheat, rice, maize and soy – are based on an annual system, in which crop plants live one year, are harvested, and are replanted the following year. These systems are notorious, however, for stripping organic nutrients from soils over time.—Perennial systems, on the other hand, contain plants that live longer than one year despite being harvested annually. Many agricultural scientists, including Jerry Glover of The Land Institute, say that perennial crops are the key to creating more sustainable agricultural systems.—“Across agricultural history, we’ve fundamentally relied on annual grain crops,” Glover says. “But at the same time we rely on them, they’re degrading the ecosystems they’re in, which reduces their productivity.”—To compare the long-term sustainability of these two cropping systems, Glover and his colleagues conducted a study on the physical, biological and chemical differences between annual wheat fields and perennial grass fields in Kansas. The fields had each been harvested annually for the past 75 years.—In each test, the researchers found perennial fields to be healthier and more sustainable ecosystems. In the perennial fields, the plants’ total root mass was more than seven times that of the annuals, and the roots infiltrated about a foot deeper into the ground. The perennial fields also had higher soil microbe biodiversity and higher levels of dissolved carbon and nitrogen in the soil. All these findings, says Glover, suggest that the perennial field soil is healthy enough to maintain high levels of organic nutrients.—–In addition to being more ecologically sustainable, Glover’s team found that the perennial fields were more energy-efficient in providing productive harvests. Although only the annual fields received yearly fertilizer inputs, the perennial fields yielded 23 percent more nitrogen harvested over the 75 years, despite requiring only 8 percent of the energy inputs in the field – such as fertilizer and harvesting operations – as the annual systems.–Glover says that these results clearly show the need to move away from annual crops and increase our use and domestication of perennial crops.—-“So far, little effort has been made to improve perennial crops,” he says. “Some of greatest possibilities for transforming agriculture may well come from overlooked systems such as perennial grasses.”
    Landscape diversity creates habitat for pest enemies—Farmers spend millions of dollars each year on pesticides to kill crop-eating insects. But these insects have natural enemies, too, and new research is investigating what farmers can do to encourage the proliferation of these pest-eaters. One study, presented as a talk at the ESA meeting, shows that increasing the natural habitat in and around farms can boost populations of pests’ natural enemies.—Rebecca Chaplin-Kramer of the University of California Berkeley surveyed the abundance of flies, ladybugs, wasps and other predators of a common agricultural pest, the cabbage aphid, in croplands ranging from 2 percent to about 80 percent natural vegetation. She found that as the proportion of natural area – or complexity – increased, so did the numbers of natural enemies in the croplands.—Chaplin-Kramer shows that increases in predators didn’t always result in fewer aphids in the croplands, but she points out that agents of control are only half of the equation and sources of the pests themselves must also be considered. In the absence of predators, pest levels would likely rise even more dramatically.—“By having complexity, you’re supplying a community of insects to that farm that will be waiting when –and if – more pests show up,” Chaplin-Kramer says.–Fostering larger predator communities is time-consuming and can take years to show results, Chaplin-Kramer says, which is why many farmers are skeptical of the idea. But, she says, there’s no doubt that a strong predator base is more sustainable than simply using pesticides.—“Pesticides are a short-term solution, because pests can build up resistance, and new pesticides are constantly being developed,” she says. “Building up predator communities takes time, but the systems are more stable and will provide more ecosystem services in the long term.”
    Reduced tilling improves soil microbe biodiversity—The idea of using biological instead of chemical methods to create healthy croplands doesn’t include just above-ground approaches. Soil bacteria can affect the growth and success of crop plants by fixing nitrogen, aiding in the uptake of nutrients and decomposing dead organic matter. Some current farming practices, however, may disrupt the soil ecosystem and decrease the effectiveness of the microbe community.—In his poster, Shashi Kumar of Texas Tech University will explore the relationship between conventional tilling and low-tilling practices on farms in semi-arid areas of west Texas. In areas where soil tilling was kept at a minimum, Kumar and his colleagues found a higher diversity of soil bacteria; conventional tilling produced lower bacterial diversity.—Kumar says that conventional tillage systems disrupt soil particles and decrease soil pore size, which can lead to decreased water and soil access for microbes. Although he recognizes that tillage is necessary, he thinks that farmers can reduce their tillage, even in semi-arid regions, to promote soil bacterial biodiversity.—-“We are currently using so many different crop management systems, like pesticides, insecticides and fungicides, which are damaging to our soil system,” Kumar says. “Why shouldn’t we focus on biological methods, since the bacteria are already there?”—Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Ecological Society of America, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS.

    Diversifying Crops May Protect Yields Against a More Variable Climate
    ScienceDaily (Mar. 1, 2011) — A survey of how farmers could protect themselves by growing a greater diversity of crops, published in the March issue of BioScience, has highlighted economical steps that farmers could take to minimize the threat to crops from global climate change, including a greater frequency of extreme climate events.–Adaptation to ongoing climate change is considered a policy priority for agriculture. The survey, by Brenda B. Lin of the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, documents multiple instances of farmers protecting economically important crops, such as rice and other cereals, alfalfa, and coffee, from outbreaks of pests and disease, often associated with climate change, or simply from changed physical conditions. s.—Such techniques The farmers succeeded by switching from growing a single variety of crop to growing a broader range of species or varieties, either at the same time or in rotation, or by introducing structural variety into uniform fieldwork, in general, because they make it harder for pathogens and pests to spread, and they may modulate climate extremes the crops experience. Not all attempts at agricultural diversification lead to such benefits, Lin points out.—Yet increasingly, farmers have access to crop modeling techniques that can evaluate when a given adaptation technique might provide an economic benefit. Because accurate modeling requires extensive knowledge of on-the-ground data, such as soil profiles for water and nutrients, Lin argues for the development of extension and research staff who can assist farmers in gaining the information they need to use modeling techniques for adaptation.– Story Source–The above story is reprinted from materials provided by American Institute of Biological Sciences, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS. —Journal Reference-Brenda B.

    Cancer-Fighting Goodness Found in Cholesterol, Study Suggests
    ScienceDaily (Apr. 19, 2012) — A Simon Fraser University researcher is among four scientists who argue that cholesterol may slow or stop cancer cell growth. They describe how cholesterol-binding proteins called ORPs may control cell growth in A Detour for Yeast Oxysterol Binding Proteins, a paper published in the latest issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry.—The scientists came to their conclusion while trying to understand how cholesterol moves around inside cells in the fat’s journey to cell surfaces where it reinforces their outer membrane.[U2]—“The assumption was that ORPs bind and transport cholesterol inside cells in a similar fashion to how lipoproteins bind and move around the fat outside cells through the blood stream,” explains Chris Beh. The SFU associate professor of molecular biology and biochemistry co-authored this paper.—Beh and his colleagues noted that genetic changes engineered by them block the ability of ORPs to bind cholesterol but don’t stop ORPs from functioning. In fact, these altered ORPs work better and activate other regulator proteins, which in turn trigger a variety of cellular processes that stimulate cell growth.—The scientists believe this happened because cholesterol-binding normally interferes with ORPs’ ability to bind to another lipid or fat called PI4P, which is important for cell growth.—“That told us that ORPs probably have nothing to do with moving around cholesterol within cells,” says Beh. “Rather cholesterol-binding puts the brakes on ORP’s ability to bind to PI4P which, if left unchecked, could accelerate cell growth like crazy,” says Beh. “Given that uncontrolled cell growth is a key feature of cancer, this means gaining a better understanding of the true purpose of cholesterol-binding within cells could be important in cancer treatment.”—Beh and his colleagues draw on two important facts to support their conclusion.-“First, cancer cells require ORPs to survive,” explains Beh. “Second, other scientists have previously shown that a new class of natural compounds that look like steroids or cholesterol can kill a broad spectrum of different cancer cells.”—Beh says he and his research partners will now find out exactly which proteins respond to ORP activation and under what circumstances does cholesterol turn off ORP’s activation of them.—Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Simon Fraser University. –Journal Reference-C.

    DNA-Destroying Chip Being Embedded Into Mobile Phones
    According to Dr. Boian Alexandrov at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, terahertz (THz) waves destroy human DNA. The waves literally unzip the helix strand. Now a team of technologists at UT Dallas are planning to take chips broadcasting THz waves and embed them into mobile phones for use as an imaging system for consumers, law enforcement and medical personnel… a potentially deadly technology that could eventually kill or sicken millions of people.—The controversial THz scanner technology used by the TSA at many of the nation’s airports is being adapted for cell phone use. Studies of terahertz radiation have caused experts to raise alarms over the significant health risks to humans.—-Recently major media touted a new chip that permits the adaption of a THz generating device to be embedded into cellular phones.—-Is the price for seeing through walls, a grisly death?—The excited press painted grand pictures of such technology being used by consumers to see through walls and objects, while health professionals like physcians might incorporate the technology to seek out small tumors inside patients without the need for invasive surgery.—The THz wave—located between microwaves and infrared on the electromagnetic spectrum—was chosen for security devices because it penetrates matter such as clothing, wood, paper and other porous material that’s non-conducting. At the time experts believed this type of radiation was harmless.—They were wrong.
    THz radiation unzips the DNA molecule
    In a breakthrough study conducted by Dr. Boian Alexandrov at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and a team of physicists, they discovered terrifying evidence that exposure to THz radiation builds cumulatively and affects human and animal tissue DNA. In essence, it tends to unzip the DNA molecule. [See: Inside TSA scanners: How terahertz waves tear apart human DNA] —-The Los Alamos scientists paper, DNA Breathing Dynamics in the Presence of a Terahertz Field reveals very disturbing—even shocking—evidence that THz radiation significantly damages the DNA of the people being directed through airport scanners and all TSA workers in close proximity to the machines.—Their synopsis: “We consider the influence of a terahertz field on the breathing dynamics of double-stranded DNA. We model the spontaneous formation of spatially localized openings of the damped and driven DNA chain, and find that linear instabilities lead to dynamic dimerization, while true local strand separations require a threshold amplitude mechanism. Based on our results we argue that a specific terahertz radiation exposure may significantly affect the natural dynamics of DNA, and thereby influence intricate molecular processes involved in gene expression and DNA replication.“—What all that means is the resonant effects of the THz waves bombarding humans unzips the double-stranded DNA molecule. This ripping apart of the twisted chain of DNA creates bubbles between the genes that can interfere with the processes of life itself: normal DNA replication and critical gene expression.
    Likely to cause cancer
    David J. Brenner, a Columbia University doctor and expert on the effects of radiation stated that it’s quite likely the TSA scanners will cause cancer in some individuals.—Brenner, whose Columbia’s Center for Radiological Research work focuses on radiation’s effects on biological processes, low exposure risk evaluation and radio-isotopic therapy, is concerened that people with compromised immune systems such as AIDS patients, those suffering from lupus or other immune-deficient ailments are especially at risk. Infants, children up to age 5 or 6, women who are pregnant or lactating, cancer patients and many more should steer far clear of the machines.—
    DNA strand bombarded by THz radiation unzips
    Those exposed to THz radiation—whether from security scanners or future cell phone technology—who are taking certain prescription medications or have significantly low levels of certain vitamins have increased risk of radiation induced carcinomas.——-Repeated exposure to low level radiation scans can also lead to cataracts and bring on skin cancer—including deadly melanoma.—A CMOS chip used in many different products
    THz to utilize existing CMOS chips
    According to the Daily Mail, the chips—created using Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor—or CMOS use the same technology already incorporated into devices like HD TVs, smart phones and personal computers.—Dr. Kenneth O, professor of electrical engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas and leader of the project explained to the Daily Mail that “We’ve created approaches that open a previously untapped portion of the electromagnetic spectrum for consumer use and life-saving medical applications.—“CMOS is affordable and can be used to make lots of chips,” Dr. O said. “The combination of CMOS and terahertz means you could put this chip and receiver on the back of a cellphone, turning it into a device carried in your pocket that can see through objects.”—The team’s findings were presented to an enthusiastic audience at the 2012 International Solid-State Circuits Conference held in San Francisco, California. Next the team plans to create the CMOS terahertz imaging system.
    Before moving ahead with the project, the good doctor and his team might consider contacting Dr. Boian Alexandrov and his team at Los Alamos to compare notes.—It would be a shame if a deadly technology that could eventually kill or sicken millions of people were unknowingly sold across the world. Note: That’s EXACTLY what ‘they’ want . . . more sick people to spend YEARS being ‘cured’ by allopathic medicine using MORE equipment with such technology, and being treated with meds from big pharma, all of which will meet ‘their’ eugenics goals. Treason, abounds!

    Oral supplementation of turmeric decreases proteinuria, hematuria, and systolic blood pressure in patients suffering from relapsing or refractory lupus nephritis: a randomized and placebo-controlled study.
    J Ren Nutr. 2012 Jan;22(1):50-7—Authors: Khajehdehi P, Zanjaninejad B, Aflaki E, Nazarinia M, Azad F, Malekmakan L, Dehghanzadeh GR
    Abstract
    OBJECTIVE: Despite highly expensive treatments, lupus nephritis remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with relapsing or refractory lupus nephritis. Meanwhile, experimental studies indicate that curcumin attenuates both the binding of autoantibodies from systemic lupus erythematosus patients to their cognate antigens and also the inflammatory responses of tumor necrosis factor-alpha-stimulated human endothelial cells. Therefore, in this study we investigated effect(s) of oral curcumin supplementation on patients suffering from relapsing or refractory lupus nephritis. DESIGN: A randomized and placebo-controlled study was carried out. SETTING: The present study was conducted in Lupus clinic of Hafez Hospital, Out-Patient Department of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. PATIENTS: A total of 24 patients with relapsing or refractory biopsy-proven lupus nephritis, who were randomized in 2 groups (trial [n = 12] and control [n = 12] groups) were included in this study. INTERVENTION: With each meal, each patient in the trial group received 1 capsule for 3 months, which contained 500 mg turmeric, of which 22.1 mg was the active ingredient curcumin (3 capsules daily). The control group received 3 capsules (1 with each meal) for the same period, which contained starch and were identical in color and size to capsules given to patients in the trial group. MAIN AUTOMATIC MEASURE: Data were analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences software version 15.0. RESULTS: A significant decrease in proteinuria [U1]was found when comparing pre- (954.2 ± 836.6) and 1, 2, and 3 months supplementation values (448.8 ± 633.5, 235.9 ± 290.1, and 260.9 ± 106.2, respectively) in the trial group. Also, systolic blood pressure and hematuria [U2]were found to decrease significantly when pre- and post-turmeric supplementation values were compared in the trial group. However, placebo capsules did not exert any statistically significant effect on measured variables in the control group over 3 months of the study. No adverse effect related to turmeric supplementation was observed during the trial. CONCLUSION: Short-term turmeric supplementation can decrease proteinuria, hematuria, and systolic blood pressure in patients suffering from relapsing or refractory lupus nephritis and can be used as an adjuvant safe therapy for such patients.
