Scientists seek funding to research health dangers of aluminium in vaccines!

A group of scientists is looking to raise Euro550,000 through crowdfunding to investigate the potential side effects of aluminium salts in vaccines such as the DTP (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis) and HPV jabs.
The scientists say they want to come up with the definitive answer about aluminium's safety as many parents suspect it is causing serious harm, while drug companies are not properly responding to their fears and carrying out thorough research.
The money will fund five research projects that will be carried out by the Cochrane Reviews team in Copenhagen, which will re-examine around 2,500 previously-published studies that have looked at aluminium in vaccines. Lead researcher Christiaan Gluud said: "It's well known that there is no valid analysis of the aluminium adjuvants used in vaccines, including the HPV" (the human papilloma virus vaccine, which is designed to protect against cervical cancer). The vaccine hasn't been tested against a control group vaccinated with regular salt water".
Aluminium salts have been routinely used in vaccines for more than 80 years to improve the immune response, but parents fear it is causing neurological problems in their children. One parent is Danish actress Lone Hertz, who is a member of the Fastcare group that is launching the crowdfunding project, and whose son suffered brain damage after a vaccination. "It's important we give parents the best information possible so that they can make a better-informed decision," she said.
Fastcare's leader is Mette Kenfelt, whose daughter almost died soon after being given the HPV vaccine. "No scientific research has been done to evaluate the clinical trials of vaccines with the newer aluminium salts. This is incomprehensible when we have spent years being told that vaccines only contain approved and safe elements," she said.
She points out that drug companies recently spent Kr 5 m (UK£400,000) in Denmark promoting vaccines when some of the money could have funded research into their safety.

Recipe: Chickpea Nuggets!


Getting kids to try new foods is simply an exercise in marketing. Case in point: When I made falafel for dinner one night, I called them chickpea nuggets instead of falafel and my children gobbled them right up. They asked for chickpea nuggets again and it got my mind churning with an idea for an actual chickpea nugget recipe — one with all the flavors and textures of chicken nuggets, but baked and egg-free.

Plant-Powered and Pantry-Friendly

Two pantry staples are responsible for turning a humble can of chickpeas into nuggets: rolled oats and the liquid from the chickpeas themselves (aka aquafaba). Grinding the oats into flour makes them almost undetectable in the nuggets, but their addition makes these nuggets a complete protein and more filling. The chickpea liquid acts as a replacement for eggs, which would typically hold this type of nugget alternative together.
Toasting the panko breadcrumbs before coating the nuggets gives the chickpea nuggets a richer hue, but also adds flavor and loads of crunchy texture. This single step gives the illusion of chicken nuggets instead of chickpea nuggets.
While this recipe may have come to fruition for my children, I admit that these tasty nuggets were enjoyed by adults as well. You can easily enjoy them as you might a falafel (wrapped in pita and drizzled with yogurt), on top of a salad, or like the classic kid food we love, with plenty of ketchup for dipping.


Chickpea Nuggets

Serves 4
  • 1/2 cup panko or gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans (do not drain)
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (no salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder (no salt)
Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 375°F.
Place the panko on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until toasted and golden-brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool while preparing the nuggets. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the oats in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment and process into a fine flour. Transfer to a large bowl and reserve the food processor.
Drain the chickpeas over a bowl or measuring cup, then save the chickpeas and 1/4 cup of the liquid. Place the chickpeas into the food processor; add the salt, garlic, and onion powder; and pulse until crumbly. Keep mixture in the food processor.
Whisk 1/4 cup of the chickpea liquid in a small mixing bowl until foamy. Add the foamy chickpea liquid and 1/2 cup of the oat flour to the food processor. Pulse until the mixture forms a ball. You may have a little oat flour leftover, which you can add to the chickpea mixture 1 tablespoon at a time if the mixture is loose.
Divide the chickpea mixture into 12 equal portions and shape each one into a nugget. Coat each nugget completely in the toasted panko and place on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake until crispy, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.

Recipe Notes

Gluten-free: These nuggets can be made gluten-free by using gluten-free oats and substituting gluten-free breadcrumbs for the panko.
Storage: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

 used a red quinoa here, but you can use whatever kind you like, white/buff color seems to be the most common. Also, a few notes and tips from the book: low-fat soy milk may replace the low-fat milk, blueberries may replace the blackberries, dark honey may replace the agave nectar, and walnuts may replace the pecans.
1 cup organic 1% low fat milk
1 cup water
1 cup organic quinoa, (hs note: rinse quinoa)
2 cups fresh blackberries, organic preferred
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted*

HEALTHY BITES: Year's end: There's a power of reflection!

It’s almost the end of the year and a great time to do some reflecting.
Were you one of the millions of Americans that vowed to lose weight and get healthier in 2017? If you succeeded, wonderful! And if you didn’t, then this is the perfect time to do some reflecting in order to change the outcome in 2018.
What went well?
Perhaps you were able to find support in the right places? Or maybe you have come to the conclusion that you enjoy some healthy foods or you lost a few inches even though you didn’t lose weight? All of these are amazing accomplishments and should be celebrated.
What didn’t work?
Did you tell yourself that you will spend two hours at the gym every morning before work and only eat 800 calories per day, only to realize it lasted for 1 week before you jumped ship?
Perhaps for you it may be better to limit a goal to one weight loss goal, like exercise or trying to get more fiber in the diet? Unhealthy behaviors develop over the course of time. Thus, replacing unhealthy behaviors with healthy ones requires time.
Don’t get overwhelmed and think that you have to reassess everything in your life. Instead, work toward changing one thing at a time. And don't make it a resolution that you "should" want or what other people tell you to want. It has to fit with your own values.
Put some thought into it and prepare yourself appropriately for a lifestyle change.
The power of journaling
It’s been proven that those who journal, succeed. Many of those who vowed to lose weight and succeeded have done so by getting to know themselves better through journaling.
This is a daily reflection of what has worked and what hasn’t, which is half of the battle. Maybe you come to the conclusion that you like salty foods when you are stressed, or so and so is a bad influence when you dine out or getting on the scale daily helps you be more accountable.
If journaling everything on your weight loss journey seems like a daunting task, consider keeping just a food diary. Even if you are not consciously cutting calories or making healthy food choices, a food diary may still help keep your eating in check.
Many people keep a notebook or smartphone handy and write down everything that has been eaten and drank throughout the day. Even if you write it down on scrap paper and throw it away, the act of writing it down is about being accountable and is a very effective tool for weight loss. Keeping track of emotions while eating is also important.
Were you angry, sad or bored? We often focus so much on foods and calories, but our emotions are a huge part of our eating habits. If you make a connection between your emotions and overeating, counseling can be a big help in handling those feelings.


    Reflection is powerful and it should be a tool used for successful weight loss and weight loss maintenance. Take some time for yourself and use it to reflect what this past year has meant to your health. Because after all, your health is your most valuable asset.

    5 REASONS GOING TO THE GYM IN THE MORNING IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY!



    BRITISH and NATIONAL WRESTLING CHAMPION, and OWNER of RIGHT PATH FITNESS - KEITH MCNIVEN explains why it’s best to get your workout out of the way in the morning, leaving you with the rest of your day free! KEITH says – “If we start our days right, i.e. by working out in the morning, it sets the whole day off on a high! We are able to be more productive throughout the day from the motivation we have in the morning.”

    1. IT’S EASIER TO FOLLOW HIGH-VOLUME TRAINING SYSTEMS Trying to do a tri-set or a giant set is all but impossible in a packed gym. This guy over here wants to work on his glutes. That girl over there wants to steal your dumbbells. Others cast an evil eye your way for hogging so much equipment. They would have a point — if the gym was crowded. But it's not because you were ready to rise and grind before everyone else. It's much easier to complete these types of training programs when the facility is less crowded. That just happens to be in the morning.

    2. YOUR HORMONES ARE WORKING TO YOUR ADVANTAGE In the early morning hours, crucial hormones (i.e., testosterone) that help build muscle mass are elevated in the body. By exercising in the morning, you're taking advantage of these naturally circulating hormones as they're peaking, rather than later in the day when they're lower.

    3. IT LEAVES TIME FOR OTHER PRIORITIES Nothing is more important than family. Clearly, there's a trade-off between the amount of time you spend in the gym and the amount of time you can spend at home. Which is why slicing off a small segment, like you can in the morning, is usually better than in the evening, when you have to fight rush hour, navigate a crowded gym environment, get home to shower and allot whatever's left for your family. The math simply works better if you get your workout done in the morning.

    4. YOU’LL BE LESS LIKELY TO SKIP YOUR WORKOUT It may take a cup of coffee to get your morning going, but once you're up, there are few distractions on your way to the gym. But later in the day, any number of distractions can sabotage your workout: less motivation, fatigue, the gang is going out for some drinks, a sick child, an overdue report for work or school. If you've already completed your workout, you can simply roll with whatever obstacles come up later in the evening without feeling bad that you missed another day. You're far more likely to be consistent with your training if you get it done early in the day rather than waiting for later.

    5. YOUR METABOLIC RATE WILL RECEIVE A QUICK BOOST Without a doubt, exercise can boost your metabolic rate. The degree depends on your current fitness level and the kind of activity you choose. All other things being equal, working out in the morning will help to boost your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories for the rest of the day. This phenomenon is called excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC.

    Serious side effects force a third of diabetics to quit common drug!


    The side effects of the world's most commonly-prescribed diabetes drug are so severe that around a third of patients stop taking it, a new study has discovered.
    Metformin, marketed as Glucophage, is designed to treat type 2 diabetes—but it often causes a range of distressing gut problems, such as diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
    As a result, around a third of patients stop taking the medication without telling their doctor, researchers at the University of Surrey have discovered.
    Diabetics are also giving up on other drugs, although not in quite the same numbers. Around 23 per cent stop taking a sulfonylurea, such as Gliclazide, which can cause a sudden loss in blood sugar causing fainting and dizziness, and 20 percent quit pioglitazone, marketed as Actos, which has side effects including bone pain, eyesight problems, low blood sugar and even fatal liver problems.
    This could mean that many diabetics are doing nothing to treat their condition if they're not modifying their diet.
    "We have known for a long time that a lot of medication prescribed for chronic diseases never actually get taken," said lead researcher Dr Andy McGovern.
    Dr McGovern and his team analysed how 1.6 million diabetics were coping with their medication by studying clinical trials and studies.

    Dr. Oz Shares 5 Essential Habits of a Healthy Entrepreneur


    Who better to ask about the best tips and tricks for young entrepreneurs to stay balanced and healthy than the legendary Dr. Oz? Dr. Oz influences the lives of millions with his TV show as well as Sharecare, the digital health company he created with Oprah and Jeff Arnold, the founder of WebMD. I met him during the week of the famous tech conference, WebSummit in the lobby of his hotel, where he began sharing stories about his past as soon as he sat down next to me. “I’ve spent my life the way you described [regarding stress and burnout], especially when I was performing heart surgery full time,” he said. He then shared with me his tips on how you can prevent burnout and maintain balance with your job and your health:

    1. Focus on energy management

    “The number one thing I tell the folks who I know—and this is something coming from my own experience—is that the most important decision is not time management,” begins Dr. Oz, “It’s energy management.” Most people will still use the excuse of “but I don’t have time for this right now,” but the concept above contradicts this excuse. Instead, ask the following question: are you really investing your energy in the right thing?
    “If there’s a thing that gives you energy, you should do more of that,” Dr. Oz said. For example, “you travel around the world to find that story, and maybe it wouldn’t seem like the best use of your time, it is—because it gives you energy.” It might be worth prioritizing your tasks based on what motivates you and brings you joy, instead of mindlessly scheduling yourself jobs that you don’t even like.

    2. Set your boundaries

    I often see young digital content creators dealing with all sorts of topics instead of asking themselves questions like, “Is it really that important to write about this? Can I be authentic in this field?”
    Dr. Oz says, “When I first started the show, we had a lot of young millennials working on it, just as Oprah had when she was still doing her daily show – and it was challenging because we while they brought us fresh perspective, we might have to say no to an idea that really is a good, because it was off-brand for us. Or [when we decided not to] post something because it tells a story that is not authentic to who we are.”
    I’m glad he brought up this topic, considering that Instagram is steadily going towards this direction—more and more people are showcasing a life that has nothing to do with reality, which is simply unsustainable in the long run.
    “It’s a fiction, and then you have to keep up with this fiction. I think it’s the realness and authenticity that make people comfortable in their own skin, so it makes them live their lives truly,” Dr. Oz said. But what happens when you craft an unrealistic image of a superhero who doesn’t actually exist? This is when content creators start to completely isolate themselves from their page, as people are constantly expecting an image that’s exhausting to keep up with. As a result of this, more and more digital content creators experience a burnout or breakdown.
    “My experience is that most of the time those negative comments are not about me, but about the person who wrote them,” Dr. Oz said. “They are angry about something that I have very little to do with, but I may represent what they are angry about. There are good points as well, and to those I have to respond. If I am wrong, I should own up to that too.”
    This attitude makes his online presence even more human. He gives me another example as well: “I wrote an article about food. You can eat healthy, but it doesn’t have to make you bankrupt. A lot of people are saying that’s not true, and that you need more money to eat better. The point that they wanted to make was for me to respect the fact that you need money to buy good food. They are right. You do. My point was that it doesn’t cost too much to make it not worth it. So I went back, and I said, ‘I hear what you are saying, I understand that, you are right. This is what I am trying to say also.” How about trying to look at comments objectively, rather than interpreting the occasional negative comment as a personal attack? It’s worth a try.

    3. Always have good food around you

    Many busy people substitute the time planned for food with work. As a result of stress, we often lose our appetite too, so many people live without breakfast or dinner for years (something I can relate to). “You always have to have good food around you. You shouldn’t go and buy food when you are hungry. You have to plan ahead,” Dr. Oz said.
    Ever thought about this? Maybe it would be a lot easier to plan your weekly meals early in the week, and make time to prepare them, rather than find something – anything – last minute. “Right now in my room, there are cashew nuts. They are raw, high quality, and available for when I get hungry. For me, it’s the perfect solution.”

    4. You shouldn’t skip sleep

    “You should not skip sleep. You’re better off sleeping than exercising. Sleep makes you so much more creative. It’s your homework.” I hope Arianna Huffington is reading this, nodding eagerly in agreement. More sleep equals more creativity; you can catch up on exercise later (if you want to).

    5. Relationships

    Oh yes, here comes the difficult part of our lives: how can you maintain your relationships when you have so much on your plate? “You have to maintain your relationships. There will be more difficult times when you are struggling, when you think you are alone, and that’s when you need someone by your side,” Dr. Oz said. “It doesn’t have to be a romantic relationship, it can be a best friend. But if you don’t respect those relationships, when you fall, there’s no one there to support you.”

    “There are three things you should never sacrifice: Eating, sleep, and your relationships.”

    Well, we’ve probably all been here. At least I have. I know what it’s like to go through a breakdown, and when trying to reach for help, calling someone who doesn’t pick up the phone anymore. Why? It’s simple: I had been too busy before to meet them. I think I’ve learned my lesson. “It can be a 5-minute-long conversation, once a day. You have to be there for them, and they will be there for you,” says Dr. Oz, and I agree with him wholeheartedly.


    “If you go on with your day and nothing changes your mind on something, then that’s a bad day. You always need to learn something,” says Dr. Oz, as he says goodbye to me. I smile, because he’s changed my perspective: I can finally put the importance of time management aside, and focus on what’s really going to help my work: energy management.

    Does a Salad a Day Take 11 Years of Brain Age Away?






    Healthy fats like coconut oil, avocado, walnuts, or antioxidant rich blueberries, green tea, even dark chocolate — the list of foods thought to boost brain health is extensive (and delicious). But new research says the secret to preventing cognitive decline is a lot simpler and cheaper. The latest research points to leafy green vegetables as the real brain food. Yes, your mom was right after all. 
    A five-year study conducted by the Memory and Aging Project and published this week in the journal Neurology looked at the brain health of nearly 1,000 participants. The subjects were assessed for brain function twice during the five-year period and were also questioned about their dietary habits.
    When controlled for other genetic, diet, and lifestyle factors, the subjects who regularly consumed leafy green vegetables showed slower rates of cognitive decline than the subjects who did not eat the vegetables as frequently.
    The difference was significant: those who ate even just one serving of leafy greens per day (like a half cup of cooked spinach) showed significantly less decline than those who didn’t. Regular consumption of leafy greens was linked to brain “ages” eleven years younger than the group who didn’t eat at least one serving per day.
    Credit may go to the vitamin and nutrient profile in greens — B vitamins, beta carotene, lutein, and vitamins E and K.
    “Some of the nutrients already have excellent scientific evidence, such as vitamin E, a potent antioxidant which has been demonstrated in carefully controlled animal models to protect against neuron loss, oxidative stress and inflammation, and the accumulation of amyloid plaques. Other of the nutrients are newly identified,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Martha Morris.
    The research points to the benefits of a well-rounded diet with a focus on plant-based foods, particularly fresh fruits and vegetable.
    “Daily consumption of leafy greens may be a simple and effective way to protect against loss in memory and other cognitive abilities,” said Dr. Morris.

    The Mind Diet: A Guide to a Sharper Brain!

    You must have heard of the ancient saying: “You are what you eat.” What this quote actually means is that “Your brain responds according to what you eat.” Not much beguiling, but definitely supported by science. And we all love science, don’t we?
    The next question that will probably be nagging on top of your mind is- Can eating smartly actually make you smarter? A lot. Believe it or not, but there are lots of superfoods that can run your brain in a better way and prevent dementia.
    While you should never rely solely on superfoods to keep your memory sharp, snacking some of the brain foods can aid in building a mammoth mind and preventing memory loss. Assemble up as we are going to discover some real food for thought here.
    Your brain is a small organ with a massive potential to generate, innovate, evaluate, learn and carry out different intellectual tasks. It is a strong organic machine that can control every thought, feeling, and movement while calculating within seconds and reacting with swiftness.
    The brain has a capacity to store an unlimited amount of data in the form of texts, concepts, and images.Unfortunately, our brain with all of its unbelievable capabilities starts to decline at some point, and even in this era, there is nothing much we can do except to hope for a miracle. There is nothing offered by the pharmaceutical arena to date that can reverse memory loss.
    That said, there is still a solution to cure a failing brain with dementia. Yes, you heard it right. There are a lot of things that are not meant to be mentioned on a prescription pad but are backed up by science in order to preserve the brain cognition and to help restore the memory loss.
    We are all exposed to a risk of brain degeneration at some point. Statistically speaking, living up to the age of 85 years means your chance of developing Alzheimer’s is 50 percent. So, it naturally makes sense to do everything in your power to nurture your brain.
    Which super foods can help improve memory? You may ask. The answer is, you have a lot to choose from but always keep in mind that your brain is a picky eater, so you have to be careful.

    1.      Eggs

    Eggs are chock full of protein, vitamin B12, and omega-3 fatty acids. Eggs are also high in tryptophan, an amino acid, which is the building block of the happiness hormone- serotonin. Many researchers have found out that whole eggs are the #1 source of choline which 90% of the people don’t usually get through their diet.
    Choline is a precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter which is vital for its role in sharp memory and quick focus.







    Also, choline is the precursor to another important nutrient- citicoline. Now, citicoline can be found in pretty much any cell, but its actions in brain cells are appraisable. It enhances the blood flow to the brain and increases the utilization of glucose; thereby, increasing your memory and focus.

    2.      Coffee

    Do you feel a bit embarrassed about your coffee habit? Well, now you shouldn’t. This ancient brew is being studied for new benefits, and it turns out preventing memory loss is actually one of them!
    Recent studies indicate that drinking a few cups of coffee on a daily basis can not only stop the cognitive decline but can also prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease from taking over your brain.
    For middle-aged people, coffee can do wonders like reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s up to 65%. If you are a woman who consumes over 261 milligrams of caffeine regularly then congratulations! You are 36 percent less vulnerable from developing dementia as studied by Johns Hopkins University.
    It is about time you stop feeling bad about your caffeine addiction and start giving the brew some respect.

    3.      Fish and Nuts

    As per a research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, memory decline can be stopped by high consumption of omega-3 fatty acids. What are the foods that provide your brain omega-3 fatty acids? Fish. It looks like grandma was right, fish actually is a superfood for a sharper memory.
    What do these fatty acids do? They can increase the amount of gray matter in the human brain which can help in improving cognition and fighting off memory loss.
    Not a fan of seafood? We’ve got you covered. Nuts can be regarded as an equally important source to get all the omega-3 fatty acids. Walnuts and almonds are particularly good for protecting the brain from the harms of free radicals and in doing so, preventing dementia and increasing cognition.
    Walnuts are particularly high in DHA, a kind of omega-3 fatty acids which can protect the brain in infants and enhance the cognitive skills in adults. This is the tip to literally go nuts over!

    4.      Blueberries

    Are you worried about age-related memory loss? Blueberries are here to help. As per a research presented at the  American Chemical Society, blueberries are like housekeepers of your brain. They sweep away the substances that can ultimately lead to the development of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
    Thank us and the compound anthocyanins for this all-natural remedy for improving brain cognition. Additionally, these small berries can work magic due to a high concentration of anti-oxidants and can help in improving memory and stopping dementia from getting a hold on your brain.
    Blueberries can also be your very own basket of happiness, especially for those who are depressed. Research has indicated that eating blueberries significantly reduce the biochemical and genetic drivers behind suicidal tendencies and depression.
    Not only this but these little magical berries can also successfully treat other mental problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

    5.      Spinach

    Do you fear dementia and want to prevent it, or at least delay it for as long as possible? Here is the tip for you- Make spinach your best friend. Spinach is something you can use to prevent a lot of diseases like damage to DNA, tumor growth, and even cancer.
    Additionally, it has a tendency to slow down the aging of the brain and, thereby, increasing cognition.  Lutein and Zeaxanthin are what makes spinach so miraculous and prevent the brain from facing a decline in cognition. These green leaves are literally swimming in vitamin E which has a potential to protect nerve cells in the brain.
    Vitamin B in spinach and other leafy green veggies can not only improve the brain function but can also prevent shrinkage in specific areas of the brain that are directly connected with Alzheimer’s disease.
    Take a look at this list of some other superfoods for the brain that might seem to prevent memory loss:
    • Broccoli
    • Avocadoes
    • Whole wheat grains
    • Dark chocolate
    • Beans
    • Olive oil
    That’s it. If you are really determined to improve memory and keep dementia and Alzheimer’s disease at arm’s length, these tips are pretty much all you need to do. Always keep in mind to steer clear of a diet with high levels of sugar and fat in order to keep your brain healthy as long as it is possible.
