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.

Health Notes
This article says we should do large scale mental health screening of American children to identify problems with depression, etc. That actually might be a good idea. I initially thought that it might be good if parents were made more aware of what to look for, but things like depression are often difficult enough to detect. It might be possible to administer a relatively simple psychological test in the schools, sort of like the IQ tests or the PSAT that are currently administered, and that might help identify any psychological problems in our children, which is very important. One has to wonder, however, where all these psychological problems are coming from, and what is causing them? And is there anything we can do about the root causes?

This article says that breast cancer and stress are not related. This article says that stress and aging might be related. Also, stress reduction might help with high blood pressure.

Here is an article about prostate cancer, stress reduction, and a low-fat, high-fiber diet.

Pomegranate fruit extract (PFE) might help against lung cancer. Here is another article in case the first one doesn’t work. (January 2007 issue of Carcinogenesis) Oh, and pomegranate juice also might help with prostate cancer.

Here are some simple things you can do for the new year, like cutting trans fats, dealing with stress, stretching, etc.

Is it possible to reverse the symptoms of diabetes? I don’t know. Here are some articles generally, and of course there was the article at MSNBC that said adopting a vegan diet might help.

Here are five common diet mistakes.

This is a link to a simple game of Sudoku using pictures instead of numbers. Very interesting. It might help keep you mentally sharp. And the site also includes little factoids of health information.

I bought a vibrating seat cushion recently and I’m very glad I did. I spend a lot of time sitting here at the computer blogging. The cushion really helps. And it was on sale at the Discovery Channel store. Good deal.

Note: links that look good today often are no longer good in the future. I make every effort to create good links. When I discuss a topic, I also attempt to provide enough pertinent information so that readers won’t have to rely solely on the link at hand for their understanding, or for their further research.

    Thanks for the Sudoku link. I've never played the game before, it's fun.

    I'll try and find a simple one that mom can practice with, she gets easily frustrated since the stroke.

    Breast Cancer diet
    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.
