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.

News of Note

This article says that by 2030 one Briton in every two will develop cancer. Shouldn’t we do what we can to prevent cancers that are preventable? Limiting obesity is one way to prevent some cancers.

Here’s an article describing how playing chess can help against Alzheimer’s disease.

Genetically engineered grass has been found in the wild. This is just another example of how this technology cannot be controlled. Does anyone care? I do, but apparently I am in the minority.

This article says there is a possibility of being exposed to dioxin if you heat your food in plastic containers.

Listen to my new song, Get the Hell out of Iraq. (See lyrics here.)

    Hi, Ed. That Irregular Times diary by Sybil that you linked to this morning is helpfully followed by comments that document the dioxin in microwaved plastic fear as, thankfully, an urban myth.
