Fukushima Spent Fuel Rods to be Removed Starting November 2013
According to The Japan Times, some time this month (November), Tepco will begin the process of removing the spent fuel from Reactor No. 4 in Fukushima:
"In November, Tepco plans to begin the delicate operation of removing spent fuel from Reactor No. 4 [with] radiation equivalent to 14,000 times the amount released by the Hiroshima atomic bomb. Removing its spent fuel, which contains deadly plutonium, is an urgent task. The consequences could be far more severe than any nuclear accident the world has ever seen.
If a fuel rod is dropped, breaks or becomes entangled while being removed, possible worst-case scenarios includeMore on Fukushima Radiation – What To Do?

Even Dr. Oz is saying it: Sunscreen may be dangerous to your health. The very thing you use to protect your skin may cause rashes, hormonal problems, and cancer. Dr. Arthur Perry, who appeared on Dr. Oz's show on May 8, 2013, thinks sunscreen can do more harm than good.1
The main problem Dr. Perry is concerned about is cancer. The fact is that the ingredients used in chemical sunscreens are endocrine disruptors. They interfere with the hormones of the body, which can potentially cause cancer, especially breast cancer. The dangers are even greater for pregnant women because the developing fetus gets exposed to the endocrine disruptors.
Endocrine disruptors have powerful effects. They can More on Could Your Sunscreen be Dangerous?

A new study shows that common ginger (Zingiber officinale), may make your sore muscles feel better after exercising.
In this double-blind, crossover clinical trial, 27 subjects performed 24 specific eccentric exercises of the elbow flexors (the muscles that bend the arm at the elbow) in their non-dominant arm. One group then swallowed two grams of ginger at 24 hours or 48 hours after exercise. Another group swallowed a placebo. The subjects were evaluated for level of pain, arm volume, range-of motion of the arm and metabolic rate both before swallowing the ginger or placebo and again 45 minutes after taking it.
As to be expected, More on Ginger Supports Post-Exercise Recovery, According to New Study
Can antibiotics still be relied upon? Especially when it comes to superbugs?
Its becoming evident that superbugs are outsmarting antibiotics. Experts are talking about the "antibiotic crisis" and how there are few to no solutions.
But are there solutions they have overlooked?
The Guardian in the UK recently posted an article explaining the antibiotic crisis and how it came to be.
The article talks about the situation in England, but the exact same scenario is playing out in the US and most developed nations: antibiotic resistant superbugs are threatening lives and health care as we know it. It is now routine to pick up one or several superbugs during even a short visit to the hospital.
"What is alarming is the rate at which bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics," says WHO adviser Dr. Danilo Lo Fo Wong. "We are increasingly seeing infections that do not respond to these drugs, and the more treatments fail, the more people die."
The end of the article comes to the conclusion that:

As if there are already not enough chemicals in our food, poultry processing plants are about to boost the amount of toxic chemicals used in processing poultry yet again, to levels that are causing illnesses, injuries and death to the workers. These chemicals will be passed on and consumed by consumers, as well.
Like other meats, chicken and turkey are processed by being hung on a "line" as they pass through inspection. These lines already move much faster than they did a few years ago. Very soon, they will be moving even faster.
Chemicals have been used to process tainted meat on the processing line for many years. However, in the past, poultry carcasses that were visibly contaminated were discarded or removed for cleaning so that the uncontaminated poultry was not exposed to high levels of chemicals.
Douse Them With Chemicals Instead of Washing Them Off With Water
New proposed regulations will allow ALL poultry carcases, even "visibly contaminated poultry carcasses to remain online for treatment” – instead of being removed for cleaning. In order to destroy pathogens, More on New Proposed Regs Will Massively Increase Chemicals In Poultry

What many parents suspected is true: children exposed to toxic substances can develop learning disabilities, asthma and other health problems. A landmark Environmental Protection Agency report came to these conclusions and was posted on EPA’s website in draft form in March 2011.
However, because of fierce opposition from the chemical industry, the report has been sidetracked indefinitely. It was referred to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in early 2011, where it still sits and languishes to this day.
That should not stop parents from paying attention to the findings and protecting their children right away. The report cites hundreds of studies that show connections between exposure to certain chemical pollutants and how that correlates to negative health outcomes. It also cites animal studies that demonstrate cause and effect.

It is widely believed that vaccinations are the best form of prevention for a growing number of diseases.
