Learning from magazines

I love magazines, pictures, news, tips.
Most time I recycle my magazines, except National Geography. Your pictures are so fantabulous (fantastic + fabulous).

Useful resources:
Libraries, cabins, friends.

Because their city is so safe and even-tempered, HK’s residents do not possess the sense of physical danger that many people elsewhere do.
Lawlessness is so woven into the fabric of Philippine society.

What’s so great about ORGANIC FOOD?
The importance of going organic is less relevant in developing world – where food security trumps other concerns.
Grass-feed beef is lower in fat, and milk without chemicals is clearly a good idea.
But organic fruits and vegetables? American J of Clincial Nutrition: no difference between organic and conventional produce with regard to all but 3 of vitamins.
You have people on both sides of the argument cherry-picking their data.

Processed food is dense with salt and swimming with high-fructose corn syrup. Blueroselady: Please eat grass have higher ratios of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 -> reduce cancer risk.
Alternative: eat more fish.

Drift from nearby nonorganic farms can contaminate other crops in vicinity.
Organic farmers use pesticides of their owns.

Milk: buy organic if you can. (cows that produce organic milk are not treated with antibiotics and hormones).
Beef: buy organic if you can.
Fruits / vegetables: buy conventional. Price matters.

A regular colonoscopic screening, which involves inserting a scope through the rectum and into the intestines to detect and sometimes remove growth, can lower the risk of colon cancer by 77%.
Right side of the intestines is harder to reach with the scope.
It may be worth seeking out skilled physicians.

Hope against baldness:
balding areas have the same number of hair stem cells as more hirsute ones.

A particular gene may increase the risk of depression, but only in combination wtih an added, nongenetic factor – a stressful life event. Blueroselady: NATURE and NURTURE both play roles!
Ppl with 1 form of a protein that ferries serotonin (a mood-related neurotransmitter), are esp prone to depression when faced with traumatic events. Why? this protein prevents nerve cells in the brain from reabsorbing serotonin.

There is no such thing as a free market, he declares, “a market looks free only because we so unconditionally accept its underlying restrictions that we fail to see them.” Book “23 things they don’t tell you about capitalism”, by Ha-Joon Chang.

Mario Valenzuela, who plays the villain, shrughs off accusations by the Mexican gov and press that these films glorify the drug cartels. Violence is as much a part of our daily life as bread. Tijuana.
