Tag Archives: Long Winter

It’s 51 degrees in Boston as I write this, and although I keep reading these articles about the planet warming, I remain skeptical. It’s going down to 40…yes that’s right “40 degrees” in the middle of May! I call that unseasonably cold for this time of year.

Some scientists are actually predicting a cooling cycle based on lower solar activity in the next few decades. This would be a severe problem for food production and energy usage. Hopefully this is not the case, but only time will tell.

Mother nature is teasing us with these warm days followed by these cold spells. I just wish the weather would stay warm. After the long winter, we are all tired of the cold.

I saw something on Facebook recently that really made me angry! Angelina Jolie had both her breasts removed supposedly to protect against cancer and was being applauded as courageous and a role model to women. To me this is absolute insanity!

Removing perfectly healthy breasts to prevent the possibility of breast cancer is wrong on so many levels. This will do nothing to prevent other forms of cancer, and could even increase the chances of contracting some other type of cancer as well.

This woman (Angelina Jolie) did NOT have breast cancer, and it’s sad and disturbing that doctors actually agreed to remove her breasts even though she was perfectly healthy. Now I fully acknowledge that it’s her body and she has every right to do this if she wants.

But the message this sends to women all over the world is a dangerous and false one, that they should think about removing their healthy breasts to “protect against breast cancer” when we already know what causes these cancers and how to prevent them.

It’s important for women to have all the facts about breast cancer and to know that they can do a lot to prevent it if they understand why it happens.

There is also a non-invasive, safe test that can detect possible breast cancer years before a tumor actually develops. It’s called “infrared thermograpy.” It uses infrared imaging to detect a developing mass of blood vessels that grow to feed a tumor.

I am not saying this replaces mammograms, but that thermography uses no radiation so it’s completely safe. If it shows a developing vascular mass (concentration of blood vessels), then mammograms can be used to verify if a tumor exists or not.

Here is my page on thermograpy:

Ladies, DO NOT believe that radical actions like having your breasts removed are necessary to protect yourselves. We know why cancer develops and we know what steps to take to prevent it.

My webpage on this topic will give you some good information as a starting point and a basis for doing your own research. Here is the link:

http://www.longevity-and-antiaging-secrets.com/what-causes-breast-cancer.html

In addition, I believe that Suzanne Somer’s books on antiaging are also a good source of information, because she is a breast cancer survivor. She’s been through it and speaks from personal experience.

This is a link to Suzanne Somers book “Knockout”

It’s about the story of her recovery from breast cancer, and what the best doctors out there are doing for prevention and cure. I would urge every woman to get as much information as she can before she makes decisions on how to prevent or cure this disease.

Don’t be misled and let your decisions be driven by fear and lack of knowledge. Breast cancer is both preventable and curable, IF you understand it and have the right information! Take responsibility for your own health and be informed!

I finally saw Iron Man 3 this past weekend, and it was for me totally enjoyable. I love Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal of Tony Stark, and the hi-tech sci-fi stuff is what I really like. That said, this film didn’t engage me on an emotional level, so it was just light entertainment.

Nothing wrong with that, but if you are looking for anything deep or profound you won’t find it in films like this. For the $10.00 plus ticket price you are guaranteed lots of action, cool gadgets, and larger than life characters.

If this is your thing, you will really like Iron Man 3. Even if it’s not, I doubt you will be bored. Check it out. Marvel has a custom of having an additional scene after the film credits. I won’t spoil it and reveal what it is. You’ll just have to see the film to find out.

I love the GRP All Stars! This group of super talented musicians who record for GRP Records make some amazing music. Thank God their stuff is posted on Youtube, which gives a whole new generation of people access to their music.

Lee Ritenhour is a great guitarist in his own right, and he teams up with Dave Grusin, who has written the soundtracks for films like “The Firm” and Mulholland Falls.” He also did the theme from St. Elsewhere, a hospital drama filmed at Boston City Hospital.

Here is a clip called “Mountain Dance.”  I think you will enjoy it!

There is an entire one hour concert they did at the Record Plant at the link below:

Age Better #29: The Dangers of WiFi

It seems like “mother nature” finally figured out that it was time for
some genuine spring weather. Just a couple of days ago I was out at night
and could see my breath in the 50 degree temperatures we had.

Now it actually feels like spring and I’m looking forward to much more of
it. It’s been a long winter…

Wednesday evening I attended the Boston Ballet production called “Next
Generation” to watch my cousin Remy grace the stage at the Boston Opera
House. It was a very wonderful performance by Remy and the Boston Ballet
Company and the best way I could have imagined to spend my 58th birthday!

The ballet world is an interesting one and the men and women that perform
in it are really “artist athletes,” who are on an elite level physically. As my
cousin Remy advances into the professional phase of her dancing career,
she will benefit from some of the very same nutrition and exercise concepts
that I have shared with you!

Things like bioenergetic nutrients, grounding, micro-current, and interval
training, are all things that you can use to optimize your health at any
age! The more we know and apply, the better off we are, and we are
literally learning more each and every day!

I recently stumbled on to a Youtube video by Dr. Stephen Sinatra about cell
phone signals being an increased heart disease risk. This really piqued my
interest because I have a feeling that this will become a big health issue
in the next few years.

If you have been reading my newsletter you will have seen me mention how
important electrical signaling is to your body and it’s functions. When
electrical signals from our environment interact with our bodies, bad
things can be the result.

Once again the action of the cell membrane is the key. It is designed to
let nutrients in and toxins out, and also to keep toxins from entering the
cell. WiFi signals cause the cell membrane to close the cell off and not
allow nutrients to go in or waste to go out.

If you use a cell phone, use it on speakerphone or use one of those
adapters that use a hollow tube to transmit the sounds so that you don’t
get radiation hear your brain. This is called a “Bluetube,” and you can
find them on Amazon.com

DO NOT hold the phone up to your ear, and DO NOT EVER use a Bluetooth
(which is a cell phone earpiece that fits into your ear. This is absolutely
asking for trouble, because the microwave signal can penetrate into your
brain, something you do not want!

Minimize your cell phone use to only what is absolutely necessary. Remember
that although you can’t see, hear, or feel cellular signals, they are all
around you and doing damage to your health.

I know I’m not going to make any fans with this advice, but if you have
WiFi at home, get rid of it, and use either Homeplug wall plug adapters, or
run ethernet cable to whatever rooms you are using your computer in.

What is “Homeplug”? It’s a technology that uses the electrical wiring
in your home to function as a broadband Internet connection.

https://www.homeplug.org/home/

I use “Homeplug” myself and it works pretty well. I can just take the
module and plug it into pretty much any electrical outlet, and it works
fine. You can get these modules in electronics stores, or if you prefer
online.

Here is the Amazon link:

http://www.age-better.info/Homeplug

You can also find ethernet cable at electronics stores, although it’s a bit
expensive to run any distance. I do suggest very strongly that if you have
babies or young children in your home that you DO NOT use WiFi (wireless),
as they are especially vulnerable to it’s effects.

Yes wireless is convenient and everybody out there is pushing it as the
next big thing, but it is probably one of the worst health hazards in our
environment. Sadly, I think that by the time society realizes this, many
people will have suffered from the ill effects.

Please don’t be one of them!

On a lighter note, here is a clip from Youtube that showcases a choral
performance in Riverdance.  The performance is by the Irish choral group
called Anuna.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8VCx3KZxo8

Interestingly, I found out that Ireland has no historical choral tradition.
Anuna’s director Michael McGlynn explains that he pieced together fragments
of traditional medieval Irish chamber music, to come up with the
compositions that Anuna performs today.

The choral harmonies this groups performs are absolutely breathtaking!
Check them out on the web, and be sure to see them if they are performing
in your area. I guarantee you will be absolutely amazed.
