[Quote No.36966] Need Area: Body > Health
"...Even people that experienced meditation [focusing their imaginations on images of positive outcomes as well as grateful images where worse outcomes are considered and then the present situation compared so gratitude is felt that the present is not as bad as that] for the first time for just five days of training for twenty minutes per day ...experienced less hostility, depression, fatigue, and tension and experienced a significant decrease in stress-related cortisol. They also experienced an increase in immunoreactivity. The interesting reflection is that we actually all meditate. Many of us, however, meditate on resentment, anger, guilt about the past and anxiety about the future. Medicine is showing us that this type of guilt and anxiety meditation leads to increased inflammation, impaired immunity, hardening of the arteries, increase of type 2 diabetes, and an atrophying of nerve cells in the brain which are targeted by stress hormones. The specific places in the brain that appear to be affected most are areas that are important in learning, memory, decision making, reasoning, impulse control and emotional regulation. Stress and depression are risk factors for chronic illness, poor performance, cognitive decline and dementia. [Gratitude] Mindfulness training helps us work with our attention to more healthy thoughts which literally impact us the in the moment we are having them. Mindfulness practice results in critical differences in brain function and combats many of the effects of ageing." - Katharine McLennan

[Quote No.38321] Need Area: Body > Health
"All individuals in today's society with so many food choices, especially fast food, need to consider their dietary and exercise regimes in creating a healthy, happy lifestyle. While many foods taste great, not all of the options are healthy in the long run. From personal experience and research I have found that the best result for myself is a diet high in vegetables - raw and cooked, medium in protein - fish, meat and eggs, low in carbohydrates, sugar, and fruit, and nearly no dairy or processed food, combined with daily exercise. For those interested in learning more, an internet search for more information about these key elements will provide many reports from nutritionists that can help them make up their minds and implement these dietary and exercise regimes. I particularly recommend researching the Volumetrics and the Nutritarian diets." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.38388] Need Area: Body > Health
"[Food should be an important issue for all people concerned with their own and society's health and happiness. The following article addresses some concerns about the food and health industry that individuals should consider to help them make informed choices about what is best for them in their lives.] Coronary Capitalism: A systematic and broad failure of regulation is the elephant in the room when it comes to reforming today’s Western capitalism. Yes, much has been said about the unhealthy political-regulatory-financial dynamic that led to the global economy’s heart attack in 2008 (initiating what Carmen Reinhart and I call 'The Second Great Contraction'). But is the problem unique to the financial industry, or does it exemplify a deeper flaw in Western capitalism? Consider the food industry, particularly its sometimes-malign influence on nutrition and health. Obesity rates are soaring around the entire world, though, among large countries, the problem is perhaps most severe in the United States. According the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly one-third of US adults are obese (indicated by a body mass index above 30). Even more shockingly, more than one in six children and adolescents are obese, a rate that has tripled since 1980. (Full disclosure: my spouse produces a television and Web show, called kickinkitchen.tv, aimed at combating childhood obesity.) Of course, the problems of the food industry have been vigorously highlighted by experts on nutrition and health, including Michael Pollan and David Katz, and certainly by many economists as well. And there are numerous other examples, across a wide variety of goods and services, where one could find similar issues. Here, though, I want to focus on the food industry’s link to broader problems with contemporary capitalism (which has certainly facilitated the worldwide obesity explosion), and on why the US political system has devoted remarkably little attention to the issue (though First Lady Michelle Obama has made important efforts to raise awareness). Obesity affects life expectancy in numerous ways, ranging from cardiovascular disease to some types of cancer. Moreover, obesity – certainly in its morbid manifestations – can affect quality of life. The costs are borne not only by the individual, but also by society – directly, through the health-care system, and indirectly, through lost productivity, for example, and higher transport costs (more jet fuel, larger seats, etc.). But the obesity epidemic hardly looks like a growth killer. Highly processed corn-based food products, with lots of chemical additives, are well known to be a major driver of weight gain, but, from a conventional growth-accounting perspective, they are great stuff. Big agriculture gets paid for growing the corn (often subsidized by the government), and the food processors get paid for adding tons of chemicals to create a habit-forming – and thus irresistible – product. Along the way, scientists get paid for finding just the right mix of salt, sugar, and chemicals to make the latest instant food maximally addictive; advertisers get paid for peddling it; and, in the end, the health-care industry makes a fortune treating the disease that inevitably results. Coronary capitalism is fantastic for the stock market, which includes companies in all of these industries. Highly processed food is also good for jobs, including high-end employment in research, advertising, and health care. So, who could complain? Certainly not politicians, who get re-elected when jobs are plentiful and stock prices are up – and get donations from all of the industries that participate in the production of processed food. Indeed, in the US, politicians who dared to talk about the health, environmental, or sustainability implications of processed food would in many cases find themselves starved of campaign funds. True, market forces have spurred innovation, which has continually driven down the price of processed food, even as the price of plain old fruits and vegetables has gone up. That is a fair point, but it overlooks the huge market failure here. Consumers are provided with precious little information through schools, libraries, or health campaigns; instead, they are swamped with disinformation through advertising. Conditions for children are particularly alarming. With few resources for high-quality public television in most countries, children are co-opted by channels paid for by advertisements, including by food industry. Beyond disinformation, producers have few incentives to internalize the costs of the environmental damage that they cause. Likewise, consumers have little incentive to internalize the health-care costs of their food choices. If our only problems were the food industry causing physical heart attacks and the financial industry facilitating their economic equivalent, that would be bad enough. But the pathological regulatory-political-economic dynamic that characterizes these industries is far broader. We need to develop new and much better institutions to protect society’s long-run interests. Of course, the balance between consumer sovereignty and paternalism is always delicate. But we could certainly begin to strike a healthier balance than the one we have by giving the public far better information across a range of platforms, so that people could begin to make more informed consumption choices and political decisions.

[Quote No.39712] Need Area: Body > Health
"A Good Laugh Is Good For You, However... anticipating the laugh... is even better! Laughter may be the best medicine, but even looking forward to having a good laugh can boost your immune system and reduce stress, according to US researchers at the University of California-Irvine. 'This stuff is real,' said Lee Berk, an assistant professor of family medicine and researcher in complementary and alternative medicine, who led the study. Berk went on to say... 'This study shows that even knowing you will be involved in a positive humorous event days in advance reduces levels of stress hormones in the blood and increases levels of chemicals known to aid relaxation.' His team tested 16 men who all agreed they thought a certain videotape was funny. Half of them were told 3 days in advance they would watch it. Anticipation is half, or two-thirds, the fun... Just anticipating a happy, funny event can raise levels of endorphins and other pleasure and relaxation-inducing hormones, and lower production of stress hormones. Those who knew in advance they would see the video started experiencing biological changes right away. These findings were reported by Berk at a meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Orlando, Florida. Pretty Incredible Findings... When the men watched the video, levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, fell 39%. Epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, fell 70%, while levels of the feel-good hormone endorphin rose 27% and growth hormone levels climbed 87%. 'Growth hormone is very beneficial to the immune system,' Berk said. This all suggests that anticipation of a funny event can lower stress and stimulate the immune system, Berk further explained. Watching a funny video, or just laughing at a joke, could make healthful changes in the levels of hormones involved in stress and lower blood pressure. In 2000, a team at the University of Maryland reported that people who stated that they used humor more often were less likely to have had heart attacks. But this is the first time that researchers have shown the anticipation of having fun has similar effects. 'You have been thinking about it all day, so you experience a change in biology even before you get there... that's therapeutic', Berk said. The finding strengthens the advice that everyone should lighten up a little to live longer." - Maggie Fox
from 'Looking forward to a laugh? Good for you...' Reuters, Nov. 06, 2002.

If people don't want the financial responsibility for their own health, then the payer of their health problems will dictate what they are allowed to do that effects their health - from food to drink to exercise, to licenses, to sport's headgear, etc, etc - regardless of the individual's personal freedom. If a person holds their freedom paramount, then they must not ask others to pay for their health problems.]" - Doug Casey

"[All people have an unalienable right to make their own choices, free from force, coercion and fraud, about what they do for and to their property, which of course includes their own body, so long as it doesn’t infringe on the same, equal right for others. The only moral role therefore that wise people, including politicians, can take when they BELIEVE others are making a choice that is against that person’s best long-term interests is to provide information to allow them to make an ‘informed choice’ and to try to imaginatively persuade. For example, if another person was considering starting or continuing smoking cigarettes, the following information could be given to them:] CHEMICALS IN CIGARETTES: The chemicals in cigarettes and tobacco smoke make smoking harmful. TOBACCO SMOKE CONTAINS OVER 4,000 DIFFERENT CHEMICALS, AT LEAST 50 ARE KNOWN TO BE CARCINOGENS (CAUSE CANCER IN HUMANS) AND MANY ARE POISONOUS. Cigarettes are one of few products which can be sold legally which can harm and even kill you over time if used as intended. There are ongoing lawsuits in the USA which aim to hold tobacco companies responsible for the effects of smoking on the health of long term smokers. This is not an exhaustive list of the chemicals in cigarettes but it gives examples that many people will be able to recognise and relate to the harmful health effects of smoking them. HARMFUL CHEMICALS IN CIGARETTES: --- BENZENE (PETROL ADDITIVE): - A colourless cyclic hydrocarbon obtained from coal and petroleum, used as a solvent in fuel and in chemical manufacture - and contained in cigarette smoke. - It is a known CARCINOGEN associated with leukaemia. --- FORMALDEHYDE (EMBALMING FLUID): - A colourless liquid, highly POISONOUS, used to preserve dead bodies - also found in cigarette smoke. - Known to cause CANCER, respiratory, skin and gastrointestinal problems. --- AMMONIA (TOILET CLEANER): - Used as a flavouring, frees nicotine from tobacco turning it into a gas. - Often found in dry cleaning fluids. --- ACETONE (NAIL POLISH REMOVER): - Fragrant volatile liquid ketone, used as a solvent, for example, nail polish remover. - Found in cigarette smoke. --- TAR: - Particulate matter drawn into lungs when you inhale on a lighted cigarette. Once inhaled, smoke condenses and about 70 per cent of the tar in the smoke is deposited in the smoker's lungs. --- NICOTINE (INSECTICIDE/addictive drug): - One of the most addictive substances known to man, a powerful and fast-acting medical and non-medical POISON. - This is the chemical which causes addiction. --- CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) (CAR EXHAUST FUMES): - An odourless, tasteless and POISONOUS GAS, rapidly fatal in large amounts. - The same gas that comes out of car exhausts. - The main gas in cigarette smoke, formed when the cigarette is lit. --- ARSENIC (RAT POISON) --- HYDROGEN CYANIDE (GAS CHAMBER POISON) " - Health Education Authority (United Kingdom)

[Quote No.46483] Need Area: Body > Health
"[Healthy, natural nutrition:] The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the [primal diet], caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era — a period of about 2.5 million years which ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture and grain-based diets. In common usage, such terms as 'paleolithic diet' also refer to the actual ancestral human diet. Centered on commonly available modern foods, the 'contemporary' Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, eggs, vegetables, fruit, fungi, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, potatoes, refined salt, refined sugar, and processed oils. First popularized in the mid-1970s by gastroenterologist Walter L. Voegtlin, this nutritional concept has been promoted and adapted by a number of authors and researchers in several books and academic journals. A common theme in evolutionary medicine, Paleolithic nutrition is based on the premise that modern humans are genetically adapted to the diet of their Paleolithic ancestors and that human genetics have scarcely changed since the dawn of agriculture, and therefore that an ideal diet for human health and well-being is one that resembles this ancestral diet. Proponents of this diet argue that modern human populations subsisting on traditional diets allegedly similar to those of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers are largely free of diseases of affluence [lifestyle], and that multiple studies of the Paleolithic diet in humans have shown improved health outcomes relative to other widely recommended diets. Supporters also point to several potentially therapeutic nutritional characteristics of preagricultural diets!" - wikipedia.org
