A government-funded study says radiation from mobile phones can change the way brains process sugar.
Is that a big deal? The scientists aren't sure, according to media giant CNN Health's report. But our story has some scary tidbits.
Like this quote, from Dr. Nora Volkow, the Journal of the American Medical Association study's lead author and a neuroscientist at the National Institutes of Health:
"The human brain is sensitive to the electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phones, but for the brain to be impacted the cell phone has to be close to the antenna. So keep your brain away from the antenna."
In layman's terms: It's better to be safe than sorry, she says.
Despite years of research, there's still no conclusive proof cell phone radiation causes cancer and other health problems in the brain. Studies, some of them funded by the wireless industry, have produced contradictory findings. But the nearly ubiquitous devices haven't been proven 100% safe either. So, for the sake of argument, let's say you are worried about this and you do want to "keep your brain away from the antenna."
How do you actually do that?
Most people understand that pollution, smoke, sewage and spoiled foods are toxic to your health. However, the majority of our society continues to use some of the most toxic and carcinogenic substances within their own home every day. The current hand and dishwashing behaviors of most modern Americans are highly dangerous. Detoxify your home and body today with natural alternatives.
One of the most popular household items is anti-bacterial soap. These soaps most often contain Triclosan, which is a synthetic, broad spectrum antimicrobial agent. This same agent is now added to toothpaste, deodorant, plastics, cosmetics, & lotions among other things. This synthetic antimicrobial destroys both good and bad bacteria and due to its overuse has now created resistant strains of bacteria.
Several studies have shown that triclosan acts as a xenoestrogen or artificial estrogen mimicker. This increases artificial estrogen in the body and disrupts normal steroid hormone balance that is critical to healthy function. It is also known to disrupt thyroid function, accelerate aging and depress the central nervous system.
Mixing anti-bacterial soaps with chlorinated tap water makes a deadly combination that forms the molecule chloroform. Chloroform is a potent carcinogen that is naturally formed in chlorinated water. Chlorinated water mixed with anti-bacterial soaps forms significantly more chloroform. This happens most frequently in the dishwasher and shower where the water and soap combine under high pressure.
Spy kits that can track mobile phones and intercept calls and messages have been discovered in Washington and across the country, the US government has said.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says it has observed "anomalous activity" consistent with the use of so-called stingrays.
They could be used by foreign spies or criminals, although the DHS said it did not know who was using them.
It added that such devices pose a "growing risk".
Stingrays, a brand name for a type of International Mobile Subscriber Identity catcher (IMSI), are mobile phone surveillance devices that mimic mobile phone towers.
The size of a briefcase, the devices send out signals to trick mobile phones into transmitting their location and identifying information.
As well as tracking the mobile phone of a suspect, the devices also gather information about phones of bystanders who are nearby.
It is believed to be the first time the US government has acknowledged the use of rogue spying devices in Washington.
The revelation came in response to a letter from US senator Ron Wyden to the DHS, asking about the unauthorised use of such devices.
The agency response was obtained by the Associated Press from Wyden's office.
In it, a senior official at the DHS acknowledged that it had "observed anomalous activity in the National Capital Region (NCR) that appears to be consistent with International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) catchers".
It added that it had observed similar activity "outside the NCR" but had "not validated or attributed such activity to specific entities or devices."
The use of Stingray devices by police forces across the US is being tracked by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). It has identified 73 agencies in 25 states that own such devices but believes there could be many more in use which are not formally declared.
There are concerns among politicians in Washington that such devices could also be used by unauthorised agencies, such as foreign governments.
Four geocentric planetary alignments taking during this important six day watch period. Planetary geometry of these almost simultaneous interactions should coincide with very high levels of solar activity from February 26-28 but also the potential for significant geophysical events felt here on the Earth. Therefore a significant watch for a major earthquake from February 28 to March 3, 2017 with the forecast magnitude of this event expected (M 8.0-8.5). This event highlights subduction zone prone areas of the 'Pacific Ring Of Fire' and represents a genuine Tsunami warning if this large event in ocean based. Areas of interest for this warning are Indonesia and South America.

(AA) The Five Tibetans or the Five Rites of Rejuvenation, is a system of five, believed to be Tibetan, Yogic exercises said to be over 2500 years old. You flow through the five exercises almost in a meditative dance. Each exercise stimulates a particular chakra or hormonal system and revitalises certain organs, so that the five rites together form a complete workout for the body as a whole.
This series of movements also known as “The fountain of youth” are credited with the ability to heal the body, balance the chakras and reverse the ageing process in just ten minutes a day.
According to legend, a British explorer learned the rites in a Himalayan Monastery from Tibetan monks who had excellent health despite their advanced age. Some skeptics cast doubt upon the origins of the practice, but no matter the exact source, there is no uncertainty about the great health benefits of the practice. Peter Kelder first publicised the Tibetan Rites in 1939 in a publication, The Eye of Revelation. The sequence was later popularised through a book, The Five Tibetans, written by yoga teacher Chris Kilham, who says we will never know their true origins:
Perhaps they come from Nepal or Northern India…As the story has it, they were shared by Tibetan lamas; beyond that I know nothing of their history. Personally, I think these exercises are most likely Tibetan in origin. The issue at hand, though, is not the lineage of the Five Tibetans. The point is [their] immense potential value for those who will clear 10 minutes a day to practice. - Chris Kilham
Yoga teachers are in agreement, the sequence is a simple yet incredibly, even deceptively powerful one that creates a dynamic energetic effect in the body increasing the flow of prana or chi up the spine and through the chakras, energising every cell in your body.
