  1. 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...
  2. This announcement has nothing to do with HH

    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...

  6. Re: What Can You Do To Avoid Alzheimer's Disease?

    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.

    Edit/update: he had a passing reference to...

    Re: Is It Possible To Eat Too Much Fruit?

    Another reason why I grow my own apples, pears, plums, raspberries, rhubarb. I lost 2 peach trees, a Contender and a Madison, in the fall of 2017 when a brief warm spell at the end of the season...

    Boss sets the rules

    The manager of a large office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into his office.
    "What is your name?" the manager asked.
    "John," the new guy replied.
    The manager scowled, "Look,...

    Re: Is It Possible To Eat Too Much Fruit?

    Excellent point. Besides which, I'd contest that theory. The structure of our jaws and teeth speaks to a period in human evolution when we ate a great many tough roots and gristly meats. Over time...
  11. Re: What Can You Do To Avoid Alzheimer's Disease?

    So if a mere 1% can be attributed to genetics, that leaves a lot of explaining to do. Given that we live in an increasingly polluted world (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_pollution_in_Delhi, or...
  12. Re: China Approves World's First New Alzheimer's Drug

    I do. My body insists on it. If for some reason I don't get all 7 hours overnight, I'll fall asleep midafternoon, and if I happen to be driving, I'll pull over at the first convenient place to stop...
  13. Re: CDC: Antibiotic resistance causes 1 death every 15 minutes in US

    May I add another leg to make yours a 2-legged theory? Because I think it's plausible that the most recent Blogspot entry, "Partnering for a path to digital identity," is a worldwide, multi-corporate...
  14. Re: China Approves World's First New Alzheimer's Drug

    Wouldn't it be refreshing to see pharmaceutical companies searching for a cause rather than a treatment for a specific condition? We have yet to know how to prevent Alzheimer's, yet companies are...

  17. Re: Copper Hospital Beds Kill Bacteria, Save Lives

    Thanks for the info. Now, what are "chimney blocks"? Cement? Something else? Both of ours are fieldstone, so I have to ask. As for wood & creosote, both of our chimneys are indoors and I have to tell...

  19. Re: Copper Hospital Beds Kill Bacteria, Save Lives

    Grulla, you built a "masonry chimney." I'm impressed! We built two, using Scott and Helen Nearing's method, in our passive solar home. I'm curious about two things: what "masonry" materials did you...

    Re: The Activity That's Bad For Your Heart

    Oh, great. I don't do sports, and given this chronic hip pain, I can't even do brisk walks any more. Thus my "exercise" (aside from occasional stair climbing) consists of heavy lifting: 50-lb. bags...
