Toxic chemicals in products you buy: The retailers that earned an F for failure to act

"We're not going anywhere, and the consumers that are demanding safer and more sustainable products, they're not going away either. So that's why we're calling on these dozen companies to 'Mind the Store' and get their act together." Mike Schade, Mind the Store campaign director https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/30/health/shopping-toxic-chemicals-wellness/index.html

A dozen major companies earned an F for failing to adequately address the growing problem of toxic chemicals in the products they sell to consumers, according to the 2021 "Who's Minding the Store? A Report Card on Retailer Actions to Eliminate Toxic Chemicals."

Prominent Scientist Links Cellphone Radiation to Brain Tumors

"Brain cancer is now the leading cancer in children. It has increased dramatically in young adults. Older people have not been using phones as long. And brain cancer has a latency of 40 years."

Dr. Devra Davis does not recommend carrying your cellphone on your body because of the risks of radiation. It's also a good idea to put your phone in "airplane" mode when you go to bed at night. https://www.publicnewsservice.org/2021-03-24/health/prominent-scientist-links-cellphone-radiation-to-brain-tumors/a73655-1

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - There's a high probability that radio-frequency radiation from cellphones causes certain rare but often malignant brain tumors in humans, according to a former director of the National Center for Environmental Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. ...

Indoor Dust Contains PFAS and Other Toxic Chemicals

“They’ve shown there’s a lot of bioactivity in dust. People don’t understand that we are being exposed all the time to a multitude of chemicals that impact our endocrine systems. Things that are in our products don’t stay put. They get into our dust, whether house or office dust. And if they get into our house or office dust, they get into us.” Linda Birnbaum, former director and scientist emeritus of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Toxicology Program https://theintercept.com/2021/04/14/pfas-toxic-chemicals-indoor-dust/

A new study of indoor dust found PFAS and other toxics that can lead to infertility, diabetes, obesity, abnormal fetal growth, and cancers.

Brushing teeth twice a day, regular trips to the dentist help keep Alzheimer's disease away - Study Finds

“The mechanisms by which levels of brain amyloid accumulate and are associated with Alzheimer’s pathology are complex and only partially understood. The present study adds support to the understanding that proinflammatory diseases disrupt the clearance of amyloid from the brain, as retention of amyloid in the brain can be estimated from CSF levels. Amyloid changes are often observed decades before tau pathology or the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are detected.” Mony J. de Leon, sr. study author https://www.studyfinds.org/gum-disease-alzheimers-disease/

Researchers say having more "bad" bacteria in your gums shows a connection to one of the key biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease.

BPA-like chemicals likely causing "alarming" damage to brain cells

"We were surprised how many vital brain functions in fish are affected by the plasticizers used in numerous industries. This damage, as we were able to show, does not occur immediately. However, when the brain cells are exposed to small amounts of BPA or BPS for a month, the damage is unmistakable." Elisabeth Schirmer, first author of the study https://newatlas.com/science/bpa-chemicals-plasticizers-damage-brain-cells/

Controversy has shrouded the once-common plasticizer BPA since studies started to highlight its links to a whole range of adverse health effects in humans, but recent research has also shown that its substitutes mightn't be all that safe either. A new study has investigated how these compounds…

The Healing Power of Music

"The healing power of music — lauded by philosophers from Aristotle and Pythagoras to Pete Seeger — is now being validated by medical research. It is used in targeted treatments for asthma, autism, depression and more, including brain disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and stroke." Richard Schiffman https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/08/well/music-therapy-treatment-stress.html

This Is Your Brain on Junk Food

Anahad O’Connor writes in NY Times: “In another cynical move, Mr. Moss writes, food companies beginning in the late 1970s started buying a slew of popular diet companies, allowing them to profit off our attempts to lose the weight we gained from eating their products." https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/25/well/eat/hooked-junk-food.html

In “Hooked,” Michael Moss explores how no addictive drug can fire up the reward circuitry in our brains as rapidly as our favorite foods.

Forget What You Think Happiness Is

Claire Ansberry interviewed neuroscientist Emiliana Simon-Thomas, Univesrity of California Berkley: “Genuinely happy people are emo diverse, she says, meaning they can manage all different emotions. They are satisfied with the way their own life is going, which is a better way to define happiness.” https://www.wsj.com/articles/forget-what-you-think-happiness-is-11614952677

As the Covid-19 pandemic forces many to reconsider what makes them happy, researchers are embracing a more complex definition of the emotion that focuses less on uninterrupted bliss.

The Science Behind Your Need for One More Potato Chip

From a NY Times book review: “Regardless of debates about the law and free will, is it acceptable to market to children breakfast cereals like Cotton Candy Cap’n Crunch, which is nearly half sugar? These and many other harmful habit-forming foods have fattened corporate bank accounts at the cost of fattening hundreds of millions of Americans, contributing to countless premature deaths and debilitating illnesses as well as costing trillions of dollars. Even if you don’t consume these foods, you are paying big time for their consequences.” https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/12/books/review/hooked-michael-moss.html

Michael Moss’s “Hooked” explores the science of food addiction and the companies that make a profit from manipulating our biological instincts.

I feel like there's not one single time in recording it or doing anything with these songs that, after I'm done, I haven't felt like crying happy tears. They are happy tears.

COVID-19: Melatonin as a potential adjuvant treatment:

"The possible beneficial effects of melatonin as adjuvant use in COVID-19 in anti-inflammation, anti-oxidation, immune response regulation has been repeatedly demonstrated in respiratory disorder models induced by infections and associated complications. Melatonin has a high safety profile. Although the direct evidence of melatonin application in COVID-19 is unclear, both its use in experimental animal models and in studies on humans has continuously documented its efficacy and safety and its use by COVID-19 patients predictably would be highly beneficial." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7102583/#:~:text=The%20possible%20beneficial%20effects%20of,has%20a%20high%20safety%20profile

Weighing the Use of Growth Hormones for Children

“20 years ago, families were focused on health. They came in with a child who was not growing right and wanted to know if there was an underlying disease. Now, more and more, they’re focused on height. They want growth hormone, looking for a specific height. But this is not like Amazon; you can’t just place an order and make a child the height you want.” Dr. Adda Grimberg, pediatric endocrinologist https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/29/well/live/growth-hormones-short-children-height.html
