Lazy Tuesday

Well, it seems that relaxing environmental standards in America is just the tip of the iceberg, we are the world's dumping ground for products that are banned elsewhere. Why would anyone want to use a product that is banned in its country of origin? The Chinese won't use it so they export it to us? This is reminiscent of when we shipped bad baby's milk to Africa except now we are the end consumers of dangerous products. Who would have thought we would be treated like a third world country? And pay for it?

We might have to readjust our definition of sentience, elephants have been showing their dissatisfaction with their treatment and the deterioration of their environment. Makes one wonder about the whale and dolphin reactions.

All head injuries are serious but young people are even more at risk. Even a mild concussion can have permanent effects which include learning disorders and personality changes.

Medicine is starting to approach Star Trek with some innovative thinking. Nannites that can be swabbed onto a gaping wound or a tiny artery in the brain to control bleeding. What a concept.

The Mediterranean diet scores again. I like it because it tastes good (mainly during the summer) but now it is being recommended for Alzheimer's prevention. Bring on the fresh fish, with olive oil, vegetables and fruit. Yum.
