Fires of 2012

I’m not sure if its global warming, or a major dry spell of fires due to negligence or a combination of all these. But it certainly has taken its toll on the property, environment and lives of many. I honor and respect those who have fought these fires and the money used to fight them, and help repair the damage. I suspect in many areas such as Colorado it will take years to restore these areas, and the lives of many will be impacted, in a few cases where life has been lost, forever. I don’t think we’ve seen the end of this however. As populations grow, budgets are tightened, and global warming and climate changes make certain areas dryer than normal, we will see this sort of thing happen again. And likely in areas not accustom to fires. We nearly lost some property of our own, that our family […]

Protandim and Human Coronary Artery Endothelial Cells

A new Protandim study conducted by the Department of Health and Exercise Science, Colorado State University, shows that Protandim when used in vitro with human cells that line the inside of coronary arteries are dramatically protected from cellular death caused by oxidative stress. The study shows that without Protandim 34% of cells “die” however when pretreatment with Protandim resulted in only 6% cell death. This study shows Protandim stimulates via Nrf2 the production of several key proteins and enzymes (in some cases twice as much or up to 7 times as much more) that fight free radical damage. This study shows Protandim can reduce endothelial cell oxidative stress and has potential to reduce associated vascular disease states. ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22685617 This is the 11th Study on Protandim that is waiting to be published, however the full text is found here at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/oximed/2012/132931/ Because Protandim is a dietary supplement, it is not […]

American Cheese is not Cheese

I’m not sure why such pride is taken in labeling American Cheese “American”. Is it american to take something good and real and imitate it with favor and color? Maybe. However, American Cheese is not cheese, it just isn’t. It doesn’t even taste good. Sure its cheap, its only redeeming value I suppose, however its certainly not healthy. It used to be it contained real cheese, but no longer. What’s in American cheese? Pasteurized Milk, Salt, Sodium, Phosphates, Lactic Acid, Coloring and crap. Count me out on American Cheese. Why can’t we have good cheese and call that American Cheese! Part of the problem I think is how its processed, so manufactured, maybe that’s the American icon being represented.
