Chronic Illness Associated with Mold and Mycotoxins: Is Naso-Sinus Fungal Biofilm the Culprit?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3920250/

Re: Aspartame: Decades of Science Point to Serious Health Consequences

Never use artificial sweeteners or artificial chemicals.
Artificial sweeteners taste terrible anyway - only good for addicts whose taste buds are destroyed.

Use real food that has been used for centuries.
Do not even use more natural sweeteners such as sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, fructose, sucrose, honey, cane juice, etc.
Or Salt.
These cheap chemicals destroy your sense of taste, are addictive, high calorie, defeat normal insulin biochemical processes.
Honey probably counterfeit as olive oil so I avoid both.
Real fruit is ok but don't overdo it.
Real olives ok. Olives are a fruit.
Real bees are good pets but don't steal their honey.
Bees are needed by the natural ecosystem.

Move to Hawaii and learn what healthy good food tastes like in Japanese restaurants.
Adopt the beach lifestyle and experience why Japanese live longer than other races
and why Hawaiians live longer than other states in sicko USA.

You can improve on Hawaii by more exercise and less electronics and less fossil fuels.
Use modern sports training techniques to grow more like paleo hunter gatherers walk everywhere.
You can actually gather some fruits too and get paid for it.
Big ag on some islands including organic coffee and lots of holy cows on big island.

Take more college classes than Hawaiians who are lazy and smoke pot.
Problem with Hawaii too many rich white people and hippies who are also lazy like the fruit picker descendants common there.
Educated Japanese run the place but they need help on problems such as anywhere.
Show how to work hard on important problems like cooking, cleaning up the environment, typhoon construction robustness, etc.
Get up 5AM for exercise then go to office by 8AM and set a good example:
alert, smart, communicative, correct on details, know scientific facts, and what should be done on at least some tasks.
Require all employees to continue their education and take exams.
Fix the mass stupidity and laziness everywhere.
Strengthen brain and body to stay healthy longer.

beta-amyloid is not the cause of Alzheimer degeneration,
but the result of the brain trying to protect itself from inflammation

Research indicates that Amyloid Precursor Protein, or APP,
becomes beta-amyloid when there is inflammation or infection in the brain.

Beyond Genetics to Many Risk Factors:
think of a person suffering from Alzheimer disease as a house with a leaky roof.

identified 36 significant risk factors that may contribute to the problem.
That's like having 36 holes in the roof.
Fixing just one probably won't stop the leaks.
But getting all 36 plugged should make a difference.

Fixing all of the risk factors at the same time,
greatly lowers the risk of dementia.
It may even allow people to overcome Alzheimer disease.

Which Changes Will Help You Overcome Alzheimer Disease?

Identifying the specific factors that are relevant for each individual means putting precision medicine to work.

Dr. Bredesen describes several cases of individuals who followed the protocol, each addressing the weaknesses in their own makeup and medical history.

Instead of a single silver bullet, he offers listeners silver buckshot.

The End of Alzheimer's:
The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline:
Dale Bredesen: Amazon.com: Books

program gives me hope that there are actions we can all take to care for our brains and keep Alzheimer's at bay."

Dr. Bredesen completely recontextualizes this devastating condition away from a mysterious and unsolvable process to one that is both preventable and, yes, reversible.

Pinning our hopes on pharmaceutical research to develop a miraculous wonder drug has left both physicians and patients empty handed.

But now, this comprehensive approach offers solid results, bringing hope to so many."

—David Perlmutter, MD, Board-certified neurologist and author, #1 New York Times bestseller, Grain Brain, and Brain Maker

"The End of Alzheimer's, for the first time, synthesizes the latest science into a practical plan that can reverse Alzheimer's and dramatically improve brain health and function.

If you have a brain, read this book."

—Mark Hyman, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Eat Fat, Get Thin

"This book represents a major turning point in our approach to Alzheimer's disease, from viewing it as a mysterious and incurable affliction that is governed almost exclusively by our genes, to understanding it as a multifactorial condition that can be prevented and even reversed largely through nutrition and lifestyle change.

For the first time ever, patients and families affected by Alzheimer's—as well as those at high risk for this devastating disease—truly have a reason to be hopeful."

—Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac Founder, Kresser Institute for Functional & Evolutionary Medicine, Author of the New York Times best seller The Paleo Cure

"The End of Alzheimer's is a masterful, authoritative, and ultimately hopeful patient guide to functional medicine for your brain.

It will help you prevent and reverse Alzheimer's disease, whether you have the ApoE4 gene or not.

"a healthy mind in a healthy body".

The phrase was a favorite of Harry S. Truman former President of the United States of America from Missouri.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mens_sana_in_corpore_sano

"a healthy mind in a healthy body".

widely used in sporting and educational contexts to express the theory that
physical exercise is an important or essential part of mental and psychological well-being.

The phrase comes from the Roman poet Juvenal

It is the first in a list of what is desirable in life:
English translation:
You should pray for a healthy mind in a healthy body.
Ask for a stout heart that has no fear of death,
and deems length of days the least of Nature's gifts
that can endure any kind of toil,
that knows neither wrath nor desire and thinks
the woes and hard labors of Hercules better than
the loves and banquets and downy cushions of Sardanapalus.
What I commend to you, you can give to yourself;
For assuredly, the only road to a life of peace is virtue.
—Roman poet Juvenal

Traditional commentators believe that Juvenal's intention was to teach his fellow Roman citizens that in the main, their prayers for such things as long life are misguided.

That the gods had provided man with virtues which he then lists for them.

Over time and separated from its context, the phrase has come to have a range of meanings.

It can be construed to mean that only a healthy mind can lead to a healthy body, or equally that only a healthy body can produce or sustain a healthy mind.

Its most general usage is to express the hierarchy of needs: with physical and mental health at the root.

An earlier, similar saying is attributed to the pre-Socratic philosopher Thales:

What man is happy?

"He who has a healthy body, a resourceful mind and a docile nature."

vehicle inspection

Best car is no car.
If you have a car, some states more liberal than others.
These tests never find anything useful for me.
Keep car in good condition and it will pass inspection.


Vehicle inspection in the United States

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vehicle inspection laws by state:
  Periodic safety inspection required
  Safety inspection required upon sale or transfer
  Safety inspection required when registering a vehicle from another jurisdiction
  Emissions testing required in some areas
  Emissions testing required in all areas
  No inspection required
Striped: Both safety and emissions testing required

In the United States,vehicle safetyinspection and emissionsinspection are governed by each stateindividually. 17 states have a periodic (annual or biennial) safety inspection program, while Maryland and Alabama require a safety inspection on sale or transfer of vehicles which were previously registered in another state. New Jersey discontinued its passenger vehicle safety inspection program on August 1, 2010.[1]

In 1977, the federal Clean Air Act was amended by Congress to require states to implement vehicle emissions inspection programs, known as I/M programs (for Inspection and Maintenance), in all major metropolitan areas whose air quality failed to meet certain federal standards. New York's program started in 1982, California's program ("Smog Check") started in 1984, and Illinois' program started in 1986. The Clean Air Act of 1990 required some states to enact vehicle emissions inspection programs. State impacted were those in metropolitan areas where air quality did not meet federal standards.[2] Some states, including Kentucky and Minnesota, have discontinued their testing programs in recent years with approval from the federal government.
