CoQ10 and PQQ Revitalize Energy and Slow Cellular Aging

My favorite saying is Staying Young is an Inside Job…This is an excellent article that tells how and why…simply.

CoQ10 and PQQ Revitalize Energy and Slow Cellular Aging
By John Phillip on 05/17/2011

One of the hallmarks of aging is a rapid decline in cellular energy. Energy is produced by a complex of small powerhouses inside each cell known as mitochondria. Mitochondria are particularly vulnerable to the ravages of free radicals and oxidation from normal metabolic activity in our body and begin to deteriorate with advancing age.

Researchers have demonstrated that powerful antioxidant nutrients known to enhance energy production by supporting mitochondrial regeneration can slow aging, prevent disease and extend healthy lifespan.

Docs say No to Airport Scans

Docs say no to airport scans
By Edward Martin on 05/15/2011

The feds claim airport scanners pose little to no risk when used properly, and a new study backs them up.

Almost.

Researchers from U.C. San Francisco say the amount of radiation delivered by the airport scanners is equivalent to the normal background radiation absorbed by the body in any given three-to-nine-minute period.

But the researchers also wrote in the Archives of Internal Medicine that they have no idea what could happen if the machines aren’t working right–and since the feds refuse to allow thorough independent testing, don’t expect any answers on that anytime soon. ….Read for more..

And Yet Another Endocrine Enemy

Comment: As a health care provider, working hard to diagnose and prevent or treat disease…..I/we are challenged by our environment. And, until this is problem solved….we are are just walking in a world of our own self made pollution.

And Yet Another Endocrine Enemy

And Yet Another Endocrine Enemy

It interferes with thyroid function.

It gets estrogen and testosterone out of whack.

It puts a hurt on your immune system by messing with your thymus gland.

It increases your chances of becoming resistant to antibiotics.

It sets your kids up for asthma and infections.

And it’s probably in your house right now.

It’s triclosin–the health scourge that almost nobody’s heard about. And it’s everywhere.

Triclosin–a biocide or insecticide depending on who’s talking–takes a starring role in almost every product labeled ‘antibacterial.’ It’s also called Irgasan and Microban in case you’re reading labels.

Most liquid soaps contain triclosin–along with hormone-disrupting, cancer-causing sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate, but that’s another story for another day. Bar soaps labeled ‘antibacterial’ come fully loaded with triclosin, too.

So we wash our hands with an insecticide-laden soap, then pick up a sandwich–which adds the insecticide to our lunch. That was easy.

We shower in the stuff. Our socks come locked-and-loaded with triclosin. Cosmetics. Toothpaste. Kitchen utensils. Computer keyboards. Toys. Paint. Furniture. Humidifiers, Air filters. Laminate flooring. And on. And on. And on.

And here’s the kicker: Triclosin’s unnecessary. Regular soap safely removes 99.4% of any bacteria it contacts; triclosin products remove 99.6%–whilst doing a number on our endocrine system. For starters.

Combining the chlorine in our water with the triclosin in our soap creates poisonous dioxins, powerful environmental pollutants. While also creating chloroform, which seems to cause cancer.

And if you shower with antibacterial soap, then jump in the pool, the chlorine in the pool water reacts to the triclosin residue on your skin the same way. Thank you for sharing.

Children raised in an antibacterial bubble never acclimate to the fact we’re surrounded by various bacteria, so they never learn how to deal with the beasties. All the while, ads tell us our antibacterial actions prove our love. Yikes!. Antibacterialized kids experience higher levels of allergies, asthma and eczema than kids allowed to make mud pies and roll around on the floor with the dog.

And there’s still more. Because triclosin mirrors antibiotics in the way it destroys bacteria, we can end up resistant to antibiotics when we need them.

And water-treatment plants can’t remove triclosin, so they discharge water loaded with the stuff–which is toxic to algae–the foundation of aquatic ecosystems.

This stuff is murder, and you don’t want it anywhere around you. So ditch the antibacterial fad. Just walk away. Making the change is no big deal.

Here’s what you do: Get you some warm water. Lather up with old-fashioned bar soap. Then make sure it gets all over your hands–backs, between fingers, under fingernails–while you sing Happy Birthday to yourself twice. (If you’re in public, you might want to mind-sing instead of belting it out aloud. I’m just saying.)

And go through your house and get rid of anything labeled ‘antibacterial.’ Probably should take it to a hazmat dump.

There. You’ve just made your world a safer place. Cool, eh?
