1. Hookworm larvae are to be injected into coeliacs in bid to treat gluten intolerance

James Cook University Australia, doctors John Croese and Paul Giacomin hope to find a drug derived from the parasites to treat gluten intolerance.
The larvae are put under a bandage, they burrow into the patients’ skin to make their way into their intestines.Hookworms do not breed within the human body so there is no chance of the parasite multiplying to dangerous numbers.
Results: Some Participant in the trial ate pizza for the first time in 15 years.
The future of worm therapy is likely to involve the manufacture of synthetic versions of these worm proteins in the laboratory in the hope that eventually they could become a pill-based medication to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases, including coeliac disease.

This is a Good Reason Why

When you take a good look at the tap and bottled water that you are drinking and think you are drinking the required amount but remain dehydrated and still high PH level. Take another look. Because of the quality of this water it’s almost impossible to drink comfortably that amount of water without feeling bloated and in some cases nauseated.
The Kangen water machine is a good reason why you need to have one.

Wasted Money – Hard Earned Tax Money Disappears

This is a list of budget cuts I received by email. I personally thought it made very interesting reading. For some.

 

images-1

It was headed as Paul Ryan’s proposed budget cuts and savings in the next ten years. This is inaccurate. I checked Snopes to find this is article is only partially true.

The Spending Reduction Act of 2011 was sponsored by Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, not Paul Ryan.

Snopes summary.

‘ This itemized list of proposed budget cuts is real in the sense that it was encapsulated in a bill (H.R. 408) known as the Spending Reduction Act of 2011, a plan to reduce federal spending by $2.5 trillion through fiscal year 2021, and the specific amounts of savings to be gleaned by eliminating each item on the list come from a Republican Spending Committee report of January 2011. The Spending Reduction Act of 2011 was introduced to the House of Representatives in January 2011 and referred to committee, where it has remained ever since; it has not been passed or ever put to a vote.’

You can read more on this on the Snopes site

 

Now that I have got that out of the way, the thing that caught my eye was the list that was proposed for cutting the budget. 

Number 12 on the list was one. I mean they keeping shoving climate change down our throats and they are able to cut congressional printing and binding by 47 million. Hell that’s a lot of trees. Whats the matter with using technology to send information and save all that paper. Can they not read from an iPad?

Just look at this list and see what some of your hard-earned Tax money is going towards. It’s a laugh (sarcastic of course). No it’s not funny and we should keeping an eye on who ever proposes these ridiculous and stupid costs to the Tax Payer (you).

The Keys To Unlock The Biology Of Youth

Deepak Chopra - Timeless You

Deepak Chopra – Timeless You

Do you know what your biological age is?

Over the years I have read most of Deepak Chopra’s books and listened to his video’s also the Super Soul Sundays with Oprah. When I saw this promotion and checked it out,  I believe its something everyone should have in their library of inspirational inventory.

I have got a lot of solace at certain times of my life from his inspiration and encouragement of making ones life a lot less stressful.

Taught me to enjoy life without having to sweat the small stuff. (‘Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff ‘ happens to be a best-selling book that I have read by Richard Carlson – Great book) Well I try not to, but I am only human. Makes me think twice when something bothers me and often fall back on these tools

Another book that I have read recently is “The Super Brain” written together with Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E Tanzi who is a professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School. Makes you realize what an amazing piece of built-in equipment we have in our Brains.

So when I came across this promotion “Timeless You” Deepak Chopra I had to have it.

So I am passing this on to you. Just listen to the promotion and you can make up your mind from that.

I personally am not afraid of getting old it’s just the quality of ‘Old’ that I am more concerned about. I have seen the problem with my Mum and her mental deterioration with age that brings a certain amount of humiliation and frustration to her. I don’t want to be in that situation, so I guess that is why I search out information on making sure I don’t head in that direction.

Anyway this set of video’s etc are well worth the money. It also has a money back guarantee so if you don’t get what you want out of it you can return. I always like that because it may not suit everyone.

Saving Tip For Today

Often you have a room that needs touching up with new paintwork. If color is not a big issue, then you are able to save money.  Your  paint store will often have paint at fraction of the price because of customers  ordering paint and not liking the color of the  paint mix. The stores will then probably be selling them off cheaper to rid of the paint.
