Health watch

first_imgExperts have warned the baking industry against adding folic acid to flour or bread, linking an excess of the vitamin with increased risk of cancer.A new paper published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that fortified folic acid is broken down by the liver, however when eaten in its natural form, for example in green vegetables, it is broken down in the stomach.The authors of the study claimed that if the liver received too much folic acid then it would be released into the blood undigested. An excess in the blood stream has been linked to bowel and breast cancer.In June this year the Food Standards Agency (FSA) had agreed that a form of mandatory fortification of flour or bread with folic acid should be recommended to UK health ministers as part of a package of measures to help prevent neural tube defects (NTDs) in new born babies.Fortification could prevent between 77 and 162 NTD pregnancies a year.However, uncertainty regarding cancer risk had already led the Agency to order further research from the Scientific Advisory Group on Nutrition (SACN), which guided its decision to recommend fortification (see British Baker, October 26, pg 4).An expert group of members of SACN and cancer experts, is now examining two studies on colorectal cancer risk which were not published at the time of SACN’s original report.Previously, the SACN concluded that evidence for a relationship between folic acid and cancer risk was unclear.last_img read more

Van Halen Reunion Tour With Michael Anthony And David Lee Roth Rumored For 2019

first_imgAs 2018 begins to come to a close, festival lineup and concert rumors for 2019 continue to build excitement for fans across the country. The latest rumor beginning to circulate across the Internet is the potential 2019 reunion of Van Halen with their famous lineup consisting of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen, singer David Lee Roth, and bassist Michael Anthony. All four members were part of the group during their initial breakthrough starting in 1974 and running until 1985.The main source of a possible 2019 reunion of the famous rock band, which became a hugely successful act starting in 1978 following the release of their self-titled debut album, comes directly from Roth. The famous singer has begun sharing some vague details on what the band could be up to next summer, which might include a show at Yankee Stadium in New York City.In an interview published to Vulture earlier this month, Roth admitted, “When we come back through town in the summertime and do the original thing, maybe somewhere sportin’, maybe with somebody famous … We don’t think about the price. Because, you know, next time my rock band will be playing the same place that the Yankees play.” When asked if he could confirm that Van Halen will be setting up shop at Yankee Stadium next summer, Roth replied in stating, “Yeah, but I can’t … If I say something on tape here and everybody goes, ‘Oh, this leaked…’ But, the band will be — I can’t say.”Roth also went on to mention that the guest list of “somebody famous” could include members Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Jason Aldean, Foo Fighters, Eric Church, and Chris Stapleton. A reunion in 2019 would be the first time all four members would perform together since 1984, as Anthony parted ways with the group shortly before Roth rejoined Van Halen for a reunion tour in 2007. Eddie’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen, has been on bass duties in the year’s since. The band has been inactive since 2015.Well-known classic rock radio DJ Eddie Trunk also stated during a recent show that he’s heard similar rumors about a potential stadium reunion tour scheduled for next summer. A portion of his speculation recorded during his radio show last week can be heard in the audio-based video below.Eddie Trunk – Van Halen Reunion Rumors – 12/22/2018[Video: Metal Highlights]Former and current members of Van Halen could be going after the big payday which their fellow classic rockers, Guns N’ Roses, have been enjoying since Slash and Duff McKagan returned to their former band back in 2016. Guns N’ Roses’ ongoing Not In This Lifetime World Tour has since grossed a reported $563.3 million over 125 performance since it began back in the spring of 2016.[H/T Consequence of Sound]last_img read more

NASCAR at Phoenix: Odds, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for TicketGuardian 500

first_imgHowever, as good as he is, Kyle Busch cannot be underestimated with two career wins in Phoenix and seven top 7s in his last seven races. He has finished in the top 4 in six of his last seven attempts there.This race will likely be a duel between the two and whoever gets out in front at the start of the third stage will likely be the absolute favorite to win. This time we are going to choose Busch to come out the victor, as he may have picked up the win last week had it not been for a speeding penalty on pit road.The TicketGuardian 500 can be seen Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.What are the betting odds for the TicketGuardian 500?Kevin Harvick 9/4Kyle Busch 7/2Brad Keselowski 7/1Joey Logano 8/1Martin Truex Jr. 10/1Chase Elliott 10/1Denny Hamlin 15/1Kyle Larson 20/1Aric Almirola 20/1Clint Bowyer 25/1Erik Jones 25/1Kurt Busch 30/1Ryan Blaney 30/1Austin Dillon 50/1Alex Bowman 50/1Ricky Stenhouse Jr. 50/1Jimmie Johnson 50/1Daniel Suarez 60/1Ryan Newman 100/1William Byron 100/1Daniel Hemric 100/1Paul Menard 100/1Ryan Preece 200/1Chris Buescher 200/1Matt DiBenedetto 200/1Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. 500/1Ty Dillon 1000/1Michael McDowell 2000/1David Ragan 2000/1Field (all others) 500/1Which NASCAR drivers should you watch at the TicketGuardian 500?Aric Almirola has been quietly good this season with two top 10s in his last two races and even a pole to his name. He will likely have a good week again as he has finishes of fourth, seventh and ninth at Phoenix in his last three runs at the track. Kevin Harvick is off to a slower start than last year, but that does not in any way damage how dangerous he will be at ISM Raceway in Phoenix on Sunday for the TicketGuardian 500.Harvick has nine career wins at the one-mile track and finishes in the top 10 in 65.6 percent of his races there. He is undoubtedly the favorite to win. Erik Jones is another driver who hasn’t gotten a lot of pub this year but has had his successes with a third-place finish at Daytona and two top 13s in his last two runs. Jones has three top 10s in five career races at ISM Raceway and a fourth-place finish in the fall of 2017.Kyle Busch may get a lot of the attention right now, but Kurt Busch is again driving well with top 5s in each of his last two races. He has a win in his career at ISM and six top 10s in his last seven races in Phoenix. He hasn’t quite had as much success as of late, but a 10th-place finish last spring is more than enough to give him some confidence. He has a chance to win this year.One sleeper for the TicketGuardian 500Ryan Newman doesn’t have much to show for a good car over the first three races of the season as he has yet to earn a top 10 in 2019, but ISM Raceway could be the spot to get him going. Newman has two wins, 10 top 5s and 12 top 10s in his career in Phoenix and has finished in the top 12 in four of his last five trips to ISM Raceway. At 100/1 to win he is the definition of a sleeper.last_img read more

Don’t Just Sit There; Evolve

first_imgHave you ever wondered why your body doesn’t evolve?  After all, it is kind of like a population of trillions of organisms.  Why shouldn’t it follow the rules of natural selection?  Philip Ball asked this question in [email protected] recently.  “Evolution is usually thought of as something that happens to whole organisms,” he teased.  “But there’s no fundamental reason why, for multicelled organisms, it shouldn’t happen within a single organism too.”    So why haven’t you evolved into something else by now?  The answer is as fascinating as it is unexpected: your body works overtime to keep you from evolving:It’s not easy making a human.  Getting from a fertilized egg to a full-grown adult involves a near-miracle of orchestration, with replicating cells acquiring specialized functions in just the right places at the right times.  So you’d think that, having done the job once, our bodies would replace cells when required by the simplest means possible.    Oddly, they don’t.  Our tissues don’t renew themselves by mere copying, with old skin cells dividing into new skin cells and so forth.  Instead, they keep repeating the laborious process of starting each cell from scratch.  Now scientists think they know why: it could be nature’s way of making sure that we don’t evolve as we grow older.And it’s a good thing the body prevents you from evolving.  Ball explains that mutants would have a selective advantage to hijack your other cells without doing any work: “mutant cells that don’t do their specialized job so well tend to replicate more quickly than non-mutants, and so gain a competitive advantage, freeloading off the others,” he explained.  “In such a case, our wonderfully wrought bodies could grind to a halt.”    My, what would Charles Darwin think of that. This is too funny.  Not only did the pro-evolutionist writer Philip Ball knock off another Darwinian concept in the pro-Darwin rag Nature, he praised our “wonderfully wrought bodies” with their “near-miracle of orchestration” in language that would warm the heart of any believer in intelligent design.  My, what would Phillip Johnson think of that.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Fully Investing In Yourself

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now The word “invest” means to put money into something expecting a return in the future. The results you want are very much like the return you expect from an investment of money, but most of what you might desire doesn’t require an investment of money. Instead, it requires an investment of time, attention, and effort.Are You Invested?If you make a minimal, one-time investment, you will receive an equally small return on that investment. If you make a reasonable investment, you might get a slightly higher return, having put more in. However, if you invest a large amount consistently, the performance will match your investment.What type of investment are you making in your goals and ambitions? As it pertains to the things you claim are important to you, how large is your investment and how consistently are you making it?Some Investments You Might ConsiderThe Investment in Your Health: There is no more significant investment than the one you make in your health. Every result you produce depends on this one, and that makes it an excellent choice for a substantial, consistent investment. Are you investing enough? Are you investing consistently?The Investment in Your Personal Growth: This bullet point is almost redundant, but it isn’t. If you are the most excellent resource you will ever have, and if you own that asset free and clear, why wouldn’t you invest in its improvement?The Investment in Your Soul: Soul. Spirit. Consciousness. That part of you that seems to live outside of yourself. The investment you make here multiplies all your other investments. This is another investment in your overall health.The Investment in Your Relationships: The reason to make the investments above is so you can maximize the investment you make in relationships, life’s most major currency and the one by which you are most likely to judge your success.The Investment in Your Business and Finances: If you want choices, freedom, and the ability to make a greater contribution, you need to invest in your business and financial results. Money isn’t everything, but it isn’t nothing either. It may not be most important, and you wouldn’t want to trade for anything above, but it’s worth investing in gaining enough—and then more than enough.When you put money in most investment vehicles, you may or may not realize a return, no matter how safe the bet seems, and no matter who else might be making the same investment. There is simply no vehicle more certain to provide a return that exceeds the investment you make in yourself.last_img read more

29 held for torturing 6 men on witchcraft suspicion

first_imgAs many as 29 residents, including 22 women, of Gopapur village under Khallikote police station in Odisha’s Ganjam district were arrested on Tuesday night for their alleged involvement in torture of six persons, aged between 55 and 65 years, over suspicion of witchcraft.The arrested persons claimed the victims were witchcraft practitioners who were responsible for diseases and deaths in Gopapur.“On the night of September 30, eight teeth of each victim were uprooted and they were forced to eat human excreta. They were also beaten up and forcibly restrained at a community hall in the village,” said Sub-Divisional Police Officer Utkal Keshari Dash. On October 1, after receiving information about the incident, a police team reached the village to rescue the victims but faced stiff opposition from the villagers who threw chilli powder and stones at them.“The police managed to rescue the victims and admitted them to MKCG Medical College and Hospital in Berhampur. Later, the accused persons were rounded up and arrested,” said inspector-in-charge of Khallikote police station Satyaranjan Pradhan.Tensions gripped Gopapur two weeks ago after some villagers suddenly fell sick and three of them died. The villagers alleged some sorcery practitioners were causing the ailments and deaths. On September 28, more persons fell ill and the villagers started collecting money to call up a sorcerer to identify the alleged witchcraft practitioners. The same day, the Ganjam district administration and the police tried to intervene and make the villagers see reason.Medical teamOn September 30, a medical team from MKCG Medical College and Hospital reached the village to take blood samples of the inhabitants for tests and treat the sick. But these measures failed to convince the villagers who rounded up the six victims, based on details given by the sorcerer, and tortured them. The victims were all men in their late 50s and 60s.last_img read more
