  4. Re: Amazon protection: Can Brazil's destructive cattle ranches be transformed?

    The matter of plowing bothered me as well. Any time the soil is disturbed, as in tilling of any kind, stored carbon is released. We should be attempting to create carbon sinks rather than more carbon...

  12. Re: WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience team first to use ultrasound to to treat Alzheimer's

    "'The potential benefits of the first and subsequent treatments will take several years to fully evaluate', Rezai said." Perhaps that's why we haven't heard any more about it in over a year. Glad you...

    I'm divided on which is more worrisome, the invasion of privacy or the limits set on scientific research. Why fix what ain't broke?
  14. Re: This announcement has nothing to do with HH

    Yup, a preventive strike. I just checked in again (6:30 p.m. here) and comments are up to 260. At first I thought all the negative remarks had been moved south, but no, they're scattered, so it's...

    In case anyone's interested, I've again been banned from mercola.com, this time in advance of any post. I found the message this morning when first attempting to log on. Once I cleared mercola.com...

    Mercola had an article on sleep today, which I trashed after skimming. I will dig it up and see if it contains anything pertinent about amyloid plaque.
