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.

This article says that eating soy can help prevent cancer and blood clotting. It goes further to say that “people should grow more aware of the fact that adopting an appropriate and healthy diet associated with staying active and an overall healthy lifestyle is all they need to prevent further health disorders and problems.” I agree with that to a certain extent. That’s what I try to do. But a healthy lifestyle is not a one way street. If food producers provide us with healthy food to eat, then we will eat it. If they provide us with unhealthy food to eat, if society provides us with an unhealthy environment in which to live, then no matter what we as consumers do, we will still get sick.

I remember when I was in the eighth grade and the big news was that cranberries supposedly caused cancer. It seems that was due to the cranberry crop being tainted by an herbicide. Recent research says that cranberries are very healthy, with lots of antioxidants and also the ability to fight certain infections.

Apparently some foods are healthier when eaten in combination with others. For example, broccoli and tomato sauce, as well as cranberries and apples.

Pycnogenol, or pine bark, may help lower blood pressure, and it may help reduce some swelling associated with blood pressure medications, according to an article published in Journal of Clinical and Applied Thrombosis/Hemostasis, 2006;12:440-444.

NOW president Kim Gandy says politics might be behind the recent decision by the FDA to approve silicone breast implants.
