GMO Alfalfa may be poisonous

gmo-alfalfa-featuredIf you're over fifty, you have to be wondering about what kind of mess we are leaving to our children and grandchildren. Especially when it comes to GMO crops being grown. An article I read this morning on the CBC News website says, "no genetically modified alfalfa varieties are registered with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency" which would make one think we are safe from it, but Monsanto claims over 98 percent of the alfalfa crops are already non-organic.

This means there is a serious contamination issue. Unlike corn, alfalfa doesn't need to be planted every year. And there is evidence that supports dairy cows fed GMO crops have produced milk that contains the genetically modified DNA.

Watch the video below to learn more about this serious threat.

The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network released a new report this month titled "The Inevitability of Contamination from GM Alfalfa Release in Ontario: The case for preventing the introduction of Roundup Ready alfalfa". It links to a pdf file that is freely available to download, if you care to read it.

Recent testing on GMO corn with similar modified organisms was found to contain chlorides, formaldehyde, glyphosate, and other harmful chemicals, and they were identified to be in dangerously high levels.

It really makes one wonder, what the powers that be are thinking... You know, you read articles like "The Drug Company Pleads Guilty to Health Fraud" and drugs that could make us well, (read: 1000 Pages of Cannabis Research Links) it really makes you wonder whether they are trying to control our population, or feed money into the Health Care and Research industry. They are certainly keeping medication away from us that could do a lot of good by making it illegal.

Maybe it isn't any wonder why NASA has a mission to find other habitable planets. We have all but destroyed our own, and GMO Alfalfa is just another nail in our coffin. Maybe if we could move some of the population to another planet, we could quit making people sick on this one.

1000 Pages of Cannabis Research Links

1000-featuredA woman who was a teacher's aide in California started researching and collecting reports and links to scientific proof that the medicinal properties in medical marijuana could be used to treat a multitude of ailments and disease, including cancer. For the last few years she has been putting together lists to all the papers that are publically available for anyone to read. Her latest compilation has 1000 Pages of Cannabis Research Links.

This won't come as any surprise but she says, "Science is becoming aware of the almost unlimited potential of the endocannabinoid system for healing and the prevention of disease.

Yet, scientific research on cannabis is “discouraged” in the US, and, increasingly, I find that the new studies on cannabinoids are being done in Europe and China! We are falling behind in this rapidly emerging field of medicine!"

She also says on her website:

This prohibition foolishness has to end because it is costing people their lives, their health, their freedom and their peace of mind! I am hoping that my collection of studies and articles will help you educate those around you. We must end the ignorance!

The woman is known as Granny Storm Crow. She doesn't want her real identity known. But you certainly cannot doubt the authenticity of the links in her lists. You can learn a lot more on her facebook page that can be found here.

You can freely download her latest list of links from mediafire.com, but I want to caution you. This download site has some popups and other things it will try to prompt you to download. So you want to make sure you just download the zippered file called "Granny Storm Crow MMJ Reference List Jan 2013.zip". The download link is http://www.mediafire.com/?v3pqua6cqmup9zr

It's such a shame to read articles like Drug Company Pleads Guilty to Health Fraud that reveals how "pervasive pharmaceutical deceit infiltrates government, academia, and the media, causing consumers to pay outrageous prices for dangerous drugs that provide little or no benefit," and all the time, knowing... that helpful medical information and drugs are being suppressed and made illegal in most countries.

Dog Training in a Nutshell

dog-training-featuredOne of the things you might decide to do if you're over fifty and going solo, is to get a pet. Dogs are a good choice, and far more favored than cats. (The dog told me to say that). But you'll need to train it. There isn't anything worse than having someone come to your house and your dog is being unruly.

There is a book being offered for free for the next couple of days on Amazon titled Adult Dog Training in a Nutshell by Tim Carter.  Although not overly long, it covers numerous things I never thought of when training. He talks about becoming your dogs Accepted Pack Leader, and it never occurred to me that this was necessary. After reading his book, I can say it is.

One thing Tim mentions, that I would comment on, is:

"...body language, tone of voice etc communicates much more to our dog than we become aware."

This is very true. When I was a teen and our family got a new pup, I took the initiative to train her. But rather than using just voice commands, I used hand gestures too. For example, the command to lie down was done with a closed fist and motioning down. At first, I would put  the closed fist on the floor. And when she finally got the hint and laid down, the fist would open so she could access the treat hidden inside. Which became important later on. She was a cross between German Shepherd and Rottweiler, and she was quite protective of the home turf. When people she didn't know came to the house, the closed fist motioning down, would prompt her to lie down and not cause a fuss.

Tim's book doesn't include hand gestures, but as he mentions in the above quote, dogs can become very attuned to body language. I just took it a step farther. Then, I really didn't have any idea what I was doing. But if you're thinking of getting a dog, you might as well make sure you know how to train it, so click her to download Tim's book today, while it's free.

Easy ways to improve your memory

mem-up-featuredI don't know anyone over fifty who doesn't joke, about their memory not being as good as it used to be. A lot of it just comes naturally with age but as John Parker discusses in his book Memory: Simple, Easy, and Fun Ways to Improve Memory, there are some pretty easy ways to improve it. Of course one section of the book talks about how your diet can affect your memory, and this idea has been covered in similar posts on this website. If you type the word memory into the search box to the right, you will find articles like, Blueberries can improve your memory and Over Fifty and senior moments.

John's book is a lot more than just diet tips. He reveals techniques to put your brain in tip-top condition so you can overcome forgetfulness and recall any information anytime, anywhere, and in any situation. It has been getting some wonderful reviews, including this one below that I thought you might find useful by Aaliyah Nelson, who says:

One of the reasons I liked this book is because of the many examples. The author never assumes that just because a concept was explained that you will automatically know how to use it. Instead he provides numerous illustrations that show you what to do. Not only that, he shows you different ways to apply them in different situations. The examples are practical and reference information that you'll likely need to learn or remember, whether for school, work, or day to day life.

The book also has a section on remembering names and faces. And he offers some excellent ideas for to help you. I'll need to read this section in more detail, because it's something I have trouble with. Of course, my eyesight isn't as good as it used to be, and my hearing is less than 100%, so I really do have some valid excuses, right?

The book also mentions repetition. This is a very valuable method, and I've always found writing something down commits it to memory, but better than simply trying to make a mental note of it. When I used to go to school, I would cram for exams by writing the most important notes that I had taken over the course of the year, two to four times. I also used to get my daughter to study her spellings, by writing the words down. Of course she said it didn't help, but we tested the theory, and found that it really did.

Memory: Simple, Easy, and Fun Ways to Improve Memory is being offered for free today as an Amazon promotion. So click here to download the free Kindle version now, while you still can. It's 128 pages. if one were to print it out.

Lose weight in just 5 minutes

5-minute-featuredIf you're over fifty, you may know how easily it is to pack on some extra weight. But if you're finding yourself single again (with some extra time on your hands), you can lose those extra pounds in just five minutes a day, according to Jennifer Jolan, author of 5-Minute Miracle Exercises: Lose 5 Pounds in 2 Weeks - Only 5 Minutes a Day! She claims, "You'll see the difference in the mirror by the 2nd week (losing AT LEAST 5 pounds -- if not more -- of fat)."

There are 60 reviews for the book, and for the ones I scrolled through, they seem very favourable. Hard to believe what 5 minutes a day can do.

I did not download the book to review it. I'm one of these people who don't have any extra body weight and am often referred to as thin. I suppose there could be an extra 5 pounds I could lose, but I'm pretty much the same weight as I was 30 years ago. And weight has a way of falling off me. If I do a little biking while at the cottage this summer, by end of the season my pants will be looking baggy on me.

The Kindle version of 5-Minute Miracle Exercises is free today as part of an Amazon promotion. So if you think you'd like to take a look at it, click here to download it.
