    Having worked on family genealogy, my lineage is all over the place, and has some of the earliest European's to America. Being close to Thanksgiving, I have a few ancestors that came over on the Mayflower.

    Soccer and Dementia

    Sounds like it isn't a good idea to use ones head for hitting against objects. Makes sense. In other sports news, learned a nephew went to the ER after a HS football game recently. Being hit in the crotch can cause a considerable amount of lasting pain I was told and know to be true. Poor...

    How's your spilling? ;)

    I'm spelling challenged and come from a split family of spelling challenged members. Mom was a spelling champion when attending HS. She even went on to win an English scholarship for college. Dad, well, he's about as bad as they come with spelling correctly. I seem to have inherited dad's...

    Do you eat canned tuna regularly?

    I ate some tuna today for lunch, tuna in olive oil. It isn't something I eat regularly though as I do fear mercury poisoning. My families cats though eat tuna every day. The female cat has severe food allergies. One of the few foods she can eat is tuna. They say Mercury can make one...

    Anyone see Game Changers on Netflix?

    I haven't seen the Netlfix show. I stopped watching Netflix a couple years ago as I found them boring. I'm not sure I agree with their findings but if one finds they perform better on a vegan or mainly vegetable diet more power to that person. I think that is great. In the neighborhood...

    Ancient Egypt is Creepy.

    I was reading recently why the ancient Egyptian males shaved their head. It was because they believed more sun on their head resulted in a stronger skull. A harder head was more useful for their armies. A number of years ago some studies were done and found the Egyptians belief to be true...

    Electric Hat Reverses Male Balding

    I will politely disagree! At least in the earthing book I have it talks about negative charged electrons entering the body coming from the earth. How ever it works, I earth and it makes me feel better, after tennis play or a long walk. I haven't noticed any hair growth from grounding...

    Electric Hat Reverses Male Balding

    I don't know if it would work or not for growing hair, but there are pillow cases that can be bought that give off a slight electrical current. (The article doesn't mention the electrical current used in the mouse study.) There are grounding pillows. The earth has a slight negative electric...

    Greatest mystery of the universe ??

    My understanding is that the theory of dark matter and theory on dark energy was needed because our ideas on gravity would not be correct without them. Maybe the theory of gravity is wrong. :p

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    movdqa - Yes, Ralph Moss is not as active today with writing books. He has a web sight. He also still remains quoted in cancer books to this day though. I've run across his mentions in a few newer books on cancer of late. Since we've lost a number of friends recently to cancer, reading about...

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    movdqa - Thankyou for your information. I didn't read all of your posting, I'll get back to it later, but from the parts I skimmed, yes I tend to agree that hospitals that do higher volume procedures patients tend to have been outcomes. They also tend to have lower costs. At least that is...

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    I'd want the treatment that worked movdqa. As I've learned, just because something costs more doesn't mean it is better.

    Saw this article yesterday. It had me thinking only in America. The U.S. Health-Care System Found a Way to Make Peanuts Cost $4,200

    Are hospitals in the U.S really this expensive?

    One of the reasons why American medical health care is so expensive is that Americans don't comparison shop around. The cost difference between hospitals can be enormous for same to similar treatments. Most Americans though have little incentive to price compare between doctors and hospitals...

    My nephews are very good and enjoy pickleball. ( I believe it is pickleball. It's one of those vegetable sports) The two of them fly around the nation playing in tournaments. They have not gotten hurt till this last week. One sprained his ankle and couldn't play for a few days. Outside of...

    What happens around 60?

    The last doctor I visited with advised me to not get old. I thought it sound advice. In my family I've noticed everyone is different when they age. My father still is energetic and going strong in his middle 70s. His brothers are generally doing similar. Others in the family I've seen...

    Age is just a number

    I was with a guy that is 94 the other week. He looks very young for his age. If I didn't know how old he was I'd guess he was in his 70s. He's not very healthy though having nearly passed away earlier in the year and now going through new cancer treatment.

    Supplement NO.

    I guess ACE inhibitors work in part to lower BP levels by raising NO levels. Overall blood pressure medications make a fortune for drug firms, doctors and hospitals. Maybe they are of dubious value. I know some doctors that feel that way about BP medications. A little on that can be read...
