The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

The Great Eric has some interesting musings. More Americans now identify themselves as Democrats. The National Debt Clock in Times Square will soon need another digit. A Bill is signed into law without passing both chambers of Congress. Interesting stuff, interesting perspective.

Vitamins are taking a hit these days. There was the article I read about how vitamin C is consumed faster by cancer cells than by normal cells, thereby protecting a cancer instead of fighting it. Now there is an article about how certain vitamins may cause problems with pregnancy. While that in particular is not a problem for me, I have pretty much stopped taking vitamins for the time being. Sometimes you don’t know what to do, especially with conflicting stories in the media, and I certainly don’t want to cause more harm than good.

Some Native Americans in Minnesota seem to be weighing in on the controversy surrounding genetically modified crops, claiming that wild rice, for example, is sacred, and should be protected from genetic modification. I’m glad this is happening, but I doubt it will have much of an impact in the long run. The USA does not have a good track record of protecting Native American rights, and corporations in this country have not been known for putting consumers ahead of profits, but it’s good news nonetheless.

Migrating birds are likely to bring bird flu into the United States by this summer. That’s nothing to worry about, of course. Just put an extra can of tuna under the bed. But make sure it’s not Chicken of the Sea.

Do you want to lose weight and be healthier? A vegetarian diet may be the answer.

Latif’s Cavern has an interesting UN Survey: A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?" The survey was a huge failure. In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant, in India they didn't know what "honest" meant, in Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant, in China they didn't know what "opinion" meant, in the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant, in South America they didn't know what "please" meant, and in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant!

    Common Breast Cancer Myths

    The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

    Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

    Third is that it is solely hereditary

    The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

    Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

    Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
