The February 2012 issue of Biosis, our quarterly newsletter, is now online. In this issue:
- JoAnne’s Motivational Minute: Listening & Imagination
I loved listening to my mother read. When I was very young, she would always read me the Sunday funnies after church. I think Mother had a bit of the dramatic in her, as I could always tell by her voice what sort of action was going on. She’d be Blondie and Dagwood, Little Lulu, the Katzenjammer Kids and, of course, my favorite, Dick Tracy, who had that incredible 2-way wrist radio. Would I ever see anything like that in my lifetime?
Of course, we’ve seen that and plenty more – especially devices for communicating. But the funny thing is that the more ways we’ve invented to talk – email, blogs, social media, smartphones – the less attention we seem to give to listening. We glance at a message and then it’s gone. Communication often seems one way – more about
speaking, less about receiving. Yet all of us want to be heard.
- Dr. Verigin’s Comment: Biological Medicine in These Transformative Times, Part 2
Damaged, dysfunctional cells are among the senescent cells at the heart of the research we looked at last time. And what does the medical establishment propose we do? Why, get rid of the cells, of course! Isn’t that what we do with cancer? Kill it?
This is a far cry from the conclusions of German biological medicine. Instead of attacking “bad” cells from without, it says, “Clean up the terrain so the cells can function as designed. Clean up the terrain so the immune system can respond and clear the body of toxins, including dysfunctional cells.”
- From Our Blog: Vegetarianism a Cause of Tooth Decay? Um, No. Not Exactly.
Did you hear the one about the “new” study finding “that vegetarians are much more likely to suffer from tooth decay, lower (more acidic) salivary pH levels, and lower stimulated saliva flow than control subjects that were matched by sex and age”?
We did (thank you, Google Alerts). Only the study’s not new. And that’s not exactly what its author found.
