In a film genre more popular than ever, courageous superheroes wield special powers to protect the public from villains. But despite positive themes these films may offer, new research suggests superhero characters often idolized by young viewers may send a strongly negative message when it comes to violence. In fact, according to a study being presented at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) 2018 National Conference & Exhibition, the “good guys” in superhero films engage in more violent acts, on average, than the villains.

They know what we like. Food for thought: Why do we like it? Is it healthy to like it? What is really going on here?

Summary: Researchers report children exposed to fine particulates from outdoor pollution have an increased risk of developing autism by up to 78%.

The study of children in Shanghai, from birth to three years, found that exposure to fine particles (PM2.5) from vehicle exhausts, industrial emissions and other sources of outdoor pollution increased the risk of developing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by up to 78%. The study included 124 ASD children and 1240 healthy children (as control) in stages over a nine-year period, examining the association between air pollution and ASD.

I know… it is a study done on flies, but… when it comes to fasting, we should be paying attention.

The BATA SHOE MUSIUM

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 4:41 pm

Said to house 13,000 pairs of shoes, I could not resisting visiting while on our trip to Toronto in September, 2018. From the samples seen it is clear to me that humans have been committed to destroying their feet from the start.

The exhibit of Manola Blahnik, “… one of the most famous contemporary shoe designers” makes clear that, when it comes to shoes, fashion is king, and foot function is far behind in importance. (Incidentally, his Rule #6 is “Be true to your style”. Something to think about.)

Suicide, Depression & Antidepressants

From the Juice Lady…

It is with a heavy heart that I am sharing that a dear friend of mine committed suicide this week. She was on an antidepressant because she’d been depressed and wasn’t sleeping well. She was given the antidepressant to help her sleep. Instead it clouded her judgment and she took her life with those pills. I am absolutely devastated. That is why I’m writing this newsletter to warn you. Beware of antidepressants. The drug my friend was on has a high incidence of suicides. And if you aren’t sleeping well, use something besides an antidepressant to sleep. Warn everyone you know. These drugs are dangerous.

Here is the rest of her Post… very sobering.
