Fusion Research Breakthrough: Controlling Fusion Heat Bursts

By Raphael Rosen | *Science Daily

Researchers from General Atomics and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have made a major breakthrough in understanding how potentially damaging heat bursts inside a fusion reactor can be controlled. Scientists performed the experiments on the DIII-D National Fusion Facility, a tokamak operated by General Atomics in San Diego. The findings represent a key step in predicting how to control heat bursts in future fusion facilities including ITER, an international experiment under construction in France to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion energy. This work is supported by the DOE Office of Science (Fusion Energy Sciences).

The studies build upon previous work pioneered on DIII-D showing that these intense heat bursts — called “ELMs” for short — could be suppressed with tiny magnetic fields. These tiny fields cause the edge of the plasma to smoothly release heat, thereby avoiding the damaging heat bursts. But until now, scientists did not understand how these fields worked. “Many mysteries surrounded how the plasma distorts to suppress these heat bursts,” said Carlos Paz-Soldan, a General Atomics scientist and lead author of the first of the two papers that report the seminal findings back-to-back in the same issue of Physical Review Letters this week.

Paz-Soldan and a multi-institutional team of researchers found that tiny magnetic fields applied to the device can create two distinct kinds of response, rather than just one response as previously thought. The new response produces a ripple in the magnetic field near the plasma edge, allowing more heat to leak out at just the right rate to avert the intense heat bursts. Researchers applied the magnetic fields by running electrical current through coils around the plasma. Pickup coils then detected the plasma response, much as the microphone on a guitar picks up string vibrations.

The second result, led by PPPL scientist Raffi Nazikian, who heads the PPPL research team at DIII-D, identified the changes in the plasma that lead to the suppression of the large edge heat bursts or ELMs. The team found clear evidence that the plasma was deforming in just the way needed to allow the heat to slowly leak out. The measured magnetic distortions of the plasma edge indicated that the magnetic field was gently tearing in a narrow layer, a key prediction for how heat bursts can be prevented. “The configuration changes suddenly when the plasma is tapped in a certain way,” Nazikian said, “and it is this response that suppresses the ELMs.”

Mars Loses an Ocean But Gains the Potential for Life

By Bob King | Universe Today

MarsPlanet-36672764_m-680x380

It’s hard to believe it now looking at Mars’ dusty, dessicated landscape that it once possessed a vast ocean. A recent NASA study of the Red Planet using the world’s most powerful infrared telescopes clearly indicate a planet that sustained a body of water larger than the Earth’s Arctic Ocean.

If spread evenly across the Martian globe, it would have covered the entire surface to a depth of about 450 feet (137 meters). More likely, the water pooled into the low-lying plains that cover much of Mars’ northern hemisphere. In some places, it would have been nearly a mile (1.6 km) deep.

Now here’s the good part. Before taking flight molecule-by-molecule into space, waves lapped the desert shores for more than 1.5 billion years – longer than the time life needed to develop on Earth. By implication, life had enough time to get kickstarted on Mars, too.

Using the three most powerful infrared telescopes on Earth – the W. M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, the ESO’s Very Large Telescope and NASA’s Infrared Telescope Facility – scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center studied water molecules in the Martian atmosphere. The maps they created show the distribution and amount of two types of water – the normal H2O version we use in our coffee and HDO or heavy water, rare on Earth but not so much on Mars as it turns out.

In heavy water, one of the hydrogen atoms contains a neutron in addition to its lone proton, forming an isotope of hydrogen called deuterium. Because deuterium is more massive than regular hydrogen, heavy water really is heavier than normal water just as its name implies. The new “water maps” showed how the ratio of normal to heavy water varied across the planet according to location and season. Remarkably, the new data show the polar caps, where much of Mars’ current-day water is concentrated, are highly enriched in deuterium.

On Earth, the ratio of deuterium to normal hydrogen in water is 1 to 3,200, but at the Mars polar caps it’s 1 to 400.  Normal, lighter hydrogen is slowly lost to space once a small planet has lost its protective atmosphere envelope, concentrating the heavier form of hydrogen. Once scientists knew the deuterium to normal hydrogen ratio, they could directly determine how much water Mars must have had when it was young. The answer is A LOT!

Only 13% of the original water remains on the planet, locked up primarily in the polar regions, while 87% of the original ocean has been lost to space. The most likely place for the ocean would have been the northern plains, a vast, low-elevation region ideal for cupping huge quantities of water. Mars would have been a much more earth-like planet back then with a thicker atmosphere, providing the necessary pressure, and warmer climate to sustain the ocean below.

Researchers Develop First Quantum Device Of Its Kind

Strength in numbers

Sonia Fernandez | Phys.Org  When scientists develop a full quantum computer, the world of computing will undergo a revolution of sophistication, speed and energy efficiency that will make even our beefiest conventional machines seem like Stone Age clunkers by comparison.

But, before that happens, physicists like the ones in UC Santa Barbara’s physics professor John Martinis’ lab will have to create circuitry that takes advantage of the marvelous computing prowess promised by the quantum bit (““), while compensating for its high vulnerability to environmentally-induced error.

In what they are calling a major milestone, the researchers in the Martinis Lab have developed quantum circuitry that self-checks for errors and suppresses them, preserving the qubits’ state(s) and imbuing the system with the highly sought-after reliability that will prove foundational for the building of large-scale superconducting quantum computers.

It turns out keeping qubits error-free, or stable enough to reproduce the same result time and time again, is one of the major hurdles scientists on the forefront of quantum computing face.

“One of the biggest challenges in quantum computing is that qubits are inherently faulty,” said Julian Kelly, graduate student researcher and co-lead author of a research paper that was published in the journal Nature. “So if you store some information in them, they’ll forget it.”

Unlike classical computing, in which the computer bits exist on one of two binary (“yes/no”, or “true/false”) positions, qubits can exist at any and all positions simultaneously, in various dimensions. It is this property, called “superpositioning,” that gives quantum computers their phenomenal computational power, but it is also this characteristic which makes qubits prone to “flipping,” especially when in unstable environments, and thus difficult to work with.

“It’s hard to process information if it disappears,” said Kelly.

However, that obstacle may just have been cleared by Kelly, postdoctoral researcher Rami Barends, staff scientist Austin Fowler and others in the Martinis Group.

The error process involves creating a scheme in which several qubits work together to preserve the information, said Kelly. To do this, information is stored across several qubits.

Intuitive ‘Gut’ Feelings at Work in Mainstream Forensics

Anna Salleh  |  ABC Science

Forensic experts rely on a surprising level of gut instinct to accurately match fingerprints to catch criminals, according to a new study

“Gut feeling is responsible for a lot more of the accuracy than many people think, even the experts themselves,” says Dr Matthew Thompson of the University of Queensland School of Psychology.

While TV programs might give the impression that fingerprint matching is carried out by computers, this is actually the job of fingerprint examiners, who may use a shortlist of possible matches generated by a computer.

Interestingly very little is understood about how fingerprint examiners do this job.

Thompson says fingerprint examiners are trained to match by analysing certain features on fingerprints according to a set of rules.

“But our conclusion is that experts are still impressively accurate when they don’t have those features available,” he says.

In a series of experiments, Thompson and Dr Jason Tangen studied what happened when fingerprint examiners lacked the detail or time needed to analyse fingerprints.

They were asked to match prints that were upside down and were unclear, and in another case, given just a couple of seconds to match prints.

The experts amazed the researchers and themselves with how well they performed under these less than ideal circumstances.

Their findings are published in a recent issue of PLOS ONE.

“The results from these experiments suggest that a surprising amount of fingerprint examiners’ accuracy can be accounted for by non-analytic thinking, which is intuitive, unconscious, associative, and effortless,” says Thompson.

“You can think of it as a sort of gut feeling.”

Read Actual Books, Put Pen to Paper for a Better Brain

 | The Guardian

reading booksMy son is 18 months old, and I’ve been reading books with him since he was born. I say “reading”, but I really mean “looking at” – not to mention grasping, dropping, throwing, cuddling, chewing, and everything else a tiny human being likes to do. Over the last six months, though, he has begun not simply to look but also to recognise a few letters and numbers. He calls a capital Y a “yak” after a picture on the door of his room; a capital H is “hedgehog”; a capital K, “kangaroo”; and so on.

Reading, unlike speaking, is a young activity in evolutionary terms. Humans have been speaking in some form for hundreds of thousands of years; we are born with the ability to acquire speech etched into our neurones. The earliest writing, however, emerged only 6,000 years ago, and every act of reading remains a version of what my son is learning: identifying the special species of physical objects known as letters and words, using much the same neural circuits as we use to identify trees, cars, animals and telephone boxes.

It’s not only words and letters that we process as objects. Texts themselves, so far as our brains are concerned, are physical landscapes. So it shouldn’t be surprising that we respond differently to words printed on a page compared to words appearing on a screen; or that the key to understanding these differences lies in the geography of words in the world.

For her new book, Words Onscreen: The Fate of Reading in a Digital World, linguistics professor Naomi Baron conducted a survey of reading preferences among over 300 university students across the US, Japan, Slovakia and Germany. When given a choice between media ranging from printouts to smartphones, laptops, e-readers and desktops, 92% of respondents replied that it was hard copy that best allowed them to concentrate.

This isn’t a result likely to surprise many editors, or anyone else who works closely with text. While writing this article, I gathered my thoughts through a version of the same principle: having collated my notes onscreen, I printed said notes, scribbled all over the resulting printout, argued with myself in the margins, placed exclamation marks next to key points, spread out the scrawled result – and from this landscape hewed a (hopefully) coherent argument

What exactly was going on here? Age and habit played their part. But there is also a growing scientific recognition that many of a screen’s unrivalled assets – search, boundless and bottomless capacity, links and leaps and seamless navigation – are either unhelpful or downright destructive when it comes to certain kinds of reading and writing.

Across three experiments in 2013, researchers Pam Mueller and Daniel Oppenheimer compared the effectiveness of students taking longhand notes versus typing onto laptops. Their conclusion: the relative slowness of writing by hand demands heavier “mental lifting”, forcing students to summarise rather than to quote verbatim – in turn tending to increase conceptual understanding, application and retention.

In other words, friction is good – at least so far as the remembering brain is concerned. Moreover, the textured variety of physical writing can itself be significant. In a 2012 study at Indiana University, psychologist Karin James tested five-year-old children who did not yet know how to read or write by asking them to reproduce a letter or shape in one of three ways: typed onto a computer, drawn onto a blank sheet, or traced over a dotted outline. When the children were drawing freehand, an MRI scan during the test showed activation across areas of the brain associated in adults with reading and writing. The other two methods showed no such activation.

Study Shows that Artemesinin with Iron Can Cure Breast Cancer in 16 Hours

By Boris Djuric |Newswire.net

Wormwood-33460181_m-680x380

Editor’s Note: Cancer is the number 2 killer in the world (See https://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com/usa/top-15-causes-of-death ) and breast cancer is the type of cancer that is most prominent among women (See https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/breast/statistics/). So, this is big news and shows that we have more choices than those that are popular in mainstream media.

A new study suggests that artemesinin, a derivate of the sweet wormwood plant, in combination with Iron, can Kill 98 percent of Cancer Cells within 16 Hours.

According to a new study, published in an issue of Life Sciences, artemesinin – a derivative of the wormwood plant used in Chinese Medicine – can kill 98% of breast cancer cells in less than 16 hours. The study said the herb used alone caused a 28 percent reduction in breast cancer cells, however, when mixed with iron, sweet wormwood derivate called artemisin was able to eliminate cancer almost entirely, targeting cancer cells exclusively. In comparison, chemotherapy (cytostatic) targets all cells in the body, which negatively affects healthy cells.

According to Natural Society Internet magazine, sweet wormwood was used in the past as a powerful anti-malarial herb. Today, the sweet wormwood derivate artemisinin has been proven a strong immune buster that efficiently fights breast cancer.

The study explains that Iron accumulates in cancerous cells due to special receptors that help them in cell division, called transferrin receptors. Therefore, when Iron is given together with artemisinin it delivers the cure directly into the cancer cell, which dissolves instead of multiplying. That process of cell auto-destruction is called apoptosis.

“Taken together, our results demonstrate that the artemisinin disruption of the E2F1 transcription factor expression mediates the cell cycle arrest of human breast cancer cells and represents a critical transcriptional pathway by which artemisinin controls human reproductive cancer cell growth.”

The extract has been used for thousands of years in China to treat malaria, but bioengineers Henry Lai and Narendra Singh of the University of Washington, Seattle were the scientists who initially made the discovery that ancient the Chinese remedy could be a cure to breast cancer. This is yet another example of a natural herb causing cancerous cell apoptosis, the study concludes.

More Bad News for Smokers: Smoking Thins a Vital Part of the Brain

Editor’s Note: Mental and physical decline is said to be a part of growing old, but this study shows that apparently some of your issues with memory, language, and perception may actually have to do with smoking. This is sobering news for smokers and those who work around people who smoke.

A major study shows new evidence that long-term smoking could cause thinning of the brain’s cortex. The cortex is the outer layer of the brain in which critical cognitive functions such as memory, language and perception take place. Interestingly, the findings also suggest that stopping smoking helps to restore at least part of the cortex’s thickness. Years ago, children were warned that smoking could stunt their growth, but now a major study by an international team including the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University and the University of Edinburgh shows new evidence that long-term smoking could cause thinning of the brain’s cortex. The cortex is the outer layer of the brain in which critical cognitive functions such as memory, language and perception take place. Interestingly, the findings also suggest that stopping smoking helps to restore at least part of the cortex’s thickness.

The study involved 244 male and 260 female subjects — five times larger than any previous similar research on smoking and cortical thickness. Their average age was 73. The test group included current smokers, ex-smokers and non-smokers. All of the subjects were examined as children in 1947 as part of the Scottish Mental Survey. Researchers used health data gathered during recent personal interviews with the subjects, and also analyzed data from MRI scans showing the current state of the subjects’ brain cortices.

“We found that current and ex-smokers had, at age 73, many areas of thinner brain cortex than those that never smoked. Subjects who stopped smoking seem to partially recover their cortical thickness for each year without smoking,” says the study’s lead author Dr. Sherif Karama, assistant professor of psychiatry at McGill University, psychiatrist at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and an affiliate of the Montreal Neurological Institute. The apparent recovery process is slow, however, and incomplete. Heavy ex-smokers in the study who had given up smoking for more than 25 years still had a thinner cortex.

The Fourth Phase of Water

Dr. Mercola | Waking Times

Water is clearly one of the most important factors for your health—especially when you consider that your body actually consists of over 99 percent water molecules! I sincerely believe water is a really under-appreciated part of the equation of optimal health.

I’ve previously interviewed Dr. Gerald Pollack, who is one of the leading premier research scientists in the world when it comes to understanding the physics of water, and what it means to your health.

Besides being a professor of bio-engineering at the University of Washington, he’s also the founder and editor-in-chief of a scientific journal called Water, and has published many peer-reviewed scientific papers on this topic. He’s even received prestigious awards from the National Institutes of Health.

His book, The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor, is a phenomenal read that is easy to understand even for the non-professional.

It clearly explains the theory of the fourth phase of water, which is nothing short of ground-breaking. The fourth phase of water is, in a nutshell, living water. It’s referred to as EZ water—EZ standing for “exclusion zone”—which has a negative charge. This water can hold energy, much like a battery, and can deliver energy too.

For years, Dr. Pollack had researched muscles and how they contract, and it struck him as odd that the most common ideas about muscle contraction do not involve water, despite the fact that muscle tissue consists of 99 percent water molecules.

How could it be that 99 percent of the molecules were ignored? How could it be that muscle contracts without involving the water in some way? These questions help catalyze his passionate investigation into water.

So You Think You Understand Water?

Gilbert Ling, who was a pioneer in this field, discovered that water in human cells is not ordinary water (H2O), but something far more structured and organized.

“I began to think about water in the context of biology: if water inside the cell was ordered and structured and not bulk water or ordinary water as most biochemists and cell biologists think, then it is really important,” Dr. Pollack says.

Dr. Pollack’s book also touches on some of the most basic features of water, many of which are really not understood. For example, how does evaporation take place? Why does a tea kettle whistle? Also, despite the fact that conventional science tells us freezing is supposed to occur at zero degrees Celsius, experiments show that it can freeze in many different temperatures down to minus 50 degrees Celsius.

There’s actually no one single freezing point for water! Other experiments show that the boiling point of 100 degrees Celsius (or 212 degrees Fahrenheit) does not always hold true either.

“There’s a famous website1 put together by a British scientist, Martin Chaplin. Martin lists numerous anomalies associated with water,” Dr. Pollack says. “In other words, things that shouldn’t be according to what we know about water…

The more anomalies we have, the more we begin to think that maybe there’s something fundamental about water that we really don’t know. That’s the core of what I’m trying to do. In our laboratory at the University of Washington, we’ve done many experiments over the last decade. These experiments have clearly shown the existence of this additional phase of water.”

The reason this fourth phase of water is called the exclusion zone or EZ is because the first thing Dr. Pollack’s team discovered is that it profoundly excludes things. Even small molecules are excluded from EZ water. Surprisingly, EZ water appears in great abundance, including inside most of your cells. Even your extra-cellular tissues are filled with this kind of water.

Despite Negativity in Our Media, Scientists Say There is Universal Human Bias for Positive Words

By Peter Sheridan Dodds et al |www.sciencedaily.com | Story is based on materials provided by University of Vermont. The original article was written by Joshua E. Brown. Note: Materials may have been edited for content and length. Originally titled: “F-bombs notwithstanding, all languages skew towards happiness: Universal human bias for positive words”

StayPositive-20198356_m-680x380

Arabic movie subtitles, Korean tweets, Russian novels, Chinese websites, English lyrics, and even the war-torn pages of the New York Times — research examining billions of words, shows that these sources — and all human language — skews toward the use of happy words. This Big Data study confirms the 1969 Pollyanna Hypothesis that there is a universal human tendency to “look on and talk about the bright side of life.

In 1969, two psychologists at the University of Illinois proposed what they called the Pollyanna Hypothesis — the idea that there is a universal human tendency to use positive words more frequently than negative ones. “Put even more simply,” they wrote, “humans tend to look on (and talk about) the bright side of life.” It was a speculation that has provoked debate ever since.

Whether it’s Arabic movie subtitles, books in Chinese, Spanish Twitter, German websites, or music lyrics in English–a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, by scientists at the University of Vermont and The MITRE Corporation, found a clear positive bias in human language. In other words, we–humanity– “use more happy words than sad words,” says mathematician Chris Danforth who co-led the new research. This graph shows distributions of perceived average word happiness from 24 sources in ten languages. Spanish is most skewed toward the positive and Chinese books the least–but all sources showed the same trend: humans tend to look on, and talk about, the bright side of life. The yellow and blue graphs, called histograms, each represent the 5000 most commonly used words from each source; yellow indicates positivity; blue indicates negativity.

The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once

The widely accepted age of the , as estimated by , is 13.8 billion years. In the beginning, everything in existence is thought to have occupied a single infinitely dense point, or . Only after this point began to expand in a “Big Bang” did the universe officially begin.

Although the Big Bang singularity arises directly and unavoidably from the mathematics of general relativity, some scientists see it as problematic because the math can explain only what happened immediately after—not at or before—the singularity.

“The Big Bang singularity is the most serious problem of general relativity because the laws of physics appear to break down there,” Ahmed Farag Ali at Benha University and the Zewail City of Science and Technology, both in Egypt, told Phys.org.

I have recently read 2 articles, and received a plea for pledges, regarding Alzheimers. So, I began to reflect upon how, and question why, in the quest to blaze new trails on which to diagnose or fight a disease, our scientific and research programs often do not look at the tools around them and fashion those tools to do the job just as well.

Even if they were willing to do so, it is highly unlikely any funding would be made available to test a naturally occurring substance or modality because it cannot be patented in its natural state.

Yet, conditions like Alzheimer’s are here and now, causing suffering for individuals and families, as well as loss of consortium, memories, and productivity. The book, “Slow Dancing With A Stranger: Lost And Found In The Age Of Alzheimer’s”, by Meryl Comer, is said to chronicle the experience that she had as a caregiver for her husband, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at the age of 58 years. This story recounts what occurred in the 20 years after she gave up an award-winning journalistic career, and time as a television personality, to care for her husband as well as what she sees as the importance of making “our public conversation about the disease to be about earlier diagnosis, so our brain span can match our lifespan.” See https://www.usagainstalzheimers.org/press/meryl-comer-joins-diane-rehm- discuss-new-book-and-caregiving. This is just one story among millions…crying out for help…right now.

The organization, USAgainstAlzheimers informs us that 5.4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s. See USAgainstAlzhemiers.org/crisis. I received the above-mentioned plea from them. This organization has, as one of its stated goals, “Demand Action to Stop Alzheimer’s by 2020.” See USAgainstAlzheimers.org. It has advocated for Congress to fund more research in Alzheimer’s. And Congress did, indeed, increase spending in the most recent budget, by $25 million. See Mac McLean, “ALZ Gets Funding Boost: Federal Budget Increases Funding for Alzheimer’s Research”, The Bulletin, January 2, 2015, https://www.bendbulletin.com/lifestyle/ 2737432-151/alz-gets-funding-boost

Yet, even with money rolling in, how long will it take to come up with (a) better diagnostic tests; and (b) a medicine that will either cure, or diminish the severity of, this condition. According to the online resource, medicinenet, it takes about 12 years for a medicine to get to market. See “Drug Approvals – From Invention to Market … A 12-Year Trip”,  https://www. medicinenet. com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=9877. The cost of doing so, depending on who you talk to, is between $161 million and $2.6 billion!?! See Aaron E. Carroll, “2.6 Billion to Develop a Drug? New Estimate Makes Questionable Assumptions”, The New York Times, November 18, 2014, https://www.nytimes.com/ 2014/11/19/upshot/calculating-the-real-costs-of-developing-a-new-drug.html?abt=0002&abg=0

The two articles, that I mentioned above, were written by Dr. Joseph Mercola and are entitled, “Antiperspirants Can Make You Smell Worse, by Altering Armpit Bacteria” and “New Warning About Common Exposure That’s Likely Fueling Alzheimer’s”. See Joseph Mercola, “Antiperspirants Can Make You Smell Worse”, January 28, 2015, https://articles.mercola.com/ sites/articles/archive/2015/01/28/antiperspirants-alter-armpit-bacteria.aspx and Joseph Mercola, “New Warning About Common Exposure That’s Likely Fueling Alzheimer’s”, January 27, 2015, https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/ archive/2015/01/27/glyphosate-gmo-pesticide-residue.aspx, respectively.

The first article has this pertinent quote: “Aluminum is also widely recognized as a neurotoxin, and Alzheimer’s patients typically have elevated levels of Aluminum in their brains. While there are other sources of Aluminum, antiperspirants are a major one, as most people use it on a daily basis.” See Joseph Mercola, “Antiperspirants Can Make You Smell Worse”, January 28, 2015, https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2015/01/28/ antiperspirants-alter-armpit-bacteria.aspx. The other article indicates how the herbicide, Glyphosphate, among other things has a substantial connection to Alzheimer’s.

So, it seems that we have some toxic biochemicals that may be causing or contributing to the high incidence of Alzheimer’s. What if we could have a way of detecting if any of these toxins are in the body and what effects they are having upon the body? And what if we had a way of taking that information and, having at our fingertips, some ways of neutralizing these toxins or purging them from the body?

And what if we had a way of predicting the indicators of Alzheimer’s months or years before it draws the veil over a loved one’s consciousness?

Well, we do have exactly that in the work of Sharry Edwards. You have heard me talk about her before. She is the founder of the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology in Albany, OH. She has trained many Soundhealth Practitioners, including yours truly, and she has focused some of her valuable time and expertise upon the condition of Alzheimer’s.

She has a software, on the subject of Alzheimer’s, called the “Grey Matter of Alzheimer’s” which evaluates the Frequency Equivalents (™) of biochemicals and toxins that might cause or contribute to Alzheimer’s. She bases her programs on the latest literature about Alzheimer’s and also based upon her experiences with clients as well as research information culled from the experiences of her practitioners.

Based upon this work, she has been able to determine certain frequency-based antidotes and protocols that are supportive of the body’s ability to manage and self-heal from this condition.

This software also may have the additional benefit of forecasting onset of an Alzheimer’s condition. Edwards showed this by analyzing, of all things, a phonograph record of President Ronald Reagan that he recorded in 1961. She recorded a part of this album into her various softwares, including the Grey Matter of Alzheimer’s Software and discovered mathematical, frequency-based evidence – that suggested he had the indicators of an Alzheimer’s condition – thirty years before they supposedly manifested. See Sharry Edwards, https://soundhealthinc.com/ political/Ronald_ Reagan. pdf

Edwards’research work is ongoing and you, the reader, can become a part of it because a public version of this software is available to the public. Edwards and her institute invite you to get the software, record voice prints for your family and friends, and send in the reports to her so that these prints will inform the ongoing research.

In fact, after I saw the articles, mentioned above, I heard from my teacher that she will be having a radio show, about this very software, and that during the show the names of 5 or more audience members will be drawn in order to win a copy of this software. I understand that this will take place, via internet, on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, on Blog Talk Radio, at 6:00 P.M. EST. You can listen to the show by going to www.blogtalkradio.org or by clicking on the following links:

If you can’t manage to attend this radio show on Tuesday night, you can listen to a repeat of the show at the first or second link.

So, while big companies and greedy people waste their time reinventing the wheel because they seem to value profits over people and patents over peace of mind, let’s work with the “wheels” we have, get out on the road to better health, and arrive at to our destination of an Alzheimer’s-free world much, much faster.

Scientific Proof That You Become What You Think

Ralph Smart (Infinite Waters Diving Deep) turns explains in scientific terms why  we become what we think.  It all really boils to his final statement:

To break it down simply, the more you feel a certain a way, the more peptides you create that create cells that have receptors looking for the same peptides. Your body literally becomes dependent on and addicted to certain emotions.

That’s why when you’re angry, everything makes you more and more angry. The same with depression, anxiety or joy. You become what you think. Be aware of your thoughts.




Cancer Develops from Fungal Infections, like Candida

By: Derek Henry | Natural News

The numbers related to those who are diagnosed with cancer and who die from it are sickening, to the point that cancer is on the doorstep of knocking out heart disease as the number one killer in the United States.

It is estimated approximately that 1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with some type of cancer, and recent data shows that cancer claims at least 576,691 people per year, or nearly 23% of ALL deaths.

There are very few common threads among experts on what causes cancer, aside from obvious lifestyle choices like smoking and alcohol. However, to think cancer is largely caused by one thing is a bit too simplistic…or is it? Turns out, it may not be that complicated.

A simple fungal infection can cause cancer

According to The Home Medical Encyclopedia, in 1963 about 50% of all Americans suffered from an “unrecognized” systemic fungal infection. These infections can be brought on by many different factors that alter the optimal state of our intestinal ecology, most notably antibiotics, birth control pills, excessive processed sugar and grain consumption, heavy metal contamination, xenoestrogens, alcohol, smoking, and chronic stress.

These factors, in combination with diets severely deficient in active enzymes and probiotics, have paved the way for the most prevalent fungal infection to take over, Candida Albicans. But how does a fungal problem like Candida lead to an eventual cancer diagnosis?

According to Dr. Robert Young: “Bacteria, yeast/fungi, and mold are not the cause of a cancerous condition but are the result and the evidence of cells and tissues biologically transforming from a healthy state into an unhealthy state.”

Dr. Young astutely observed that, “over-acidification of the body leads to the development of chronic yeast and fungal infections and ultimately a cancerous condition of the cells and tissues.” Further backing this theory is the understanding that yeasts like Candida are anaerobes – which means they generate their energy in the absence of oxygen.

Once in the blood stream, they can colonize in certain areas of the body and dramatically reduce oxygen levels. This results in local cells switching their energy system from oxygen based to one that doesn’t use oxygen. This is the system used by cancer cells, which do not use oxygen to generate their energy. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize in 1931 for informing the world of this property of cancer cells and that oxygen was their enemy!

It has also been shown that beneficial bacteria in your intestine are known to direct up to 85 per cent of your immune response, to release anti-cancer vitamins (like biotin, B-12, folic acid, and vitamin K) from your foods and even to produce a compound (sodium butyrate), which causes cancer cells to self-destruct.

Beneficial bacteria don’t work well if the acidity of the gut increases, and they will be severely impaired in their anti-cancer function if you have a systemic Candida infection. The Mayo clinic has also confirmed that cancer is a fungus, can be caused by a fungus, or is accompanied by late stage fungal infections. Johns Hopkins found that the drug Itraconazole, commonly used to treat toenail fungus, can also block angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels commonly seen in cancers which allow metastases (spreading of cancer throughout the body) to occur.

Knowing these truths, is it any surprise that cancer is so rampant? How many people do you know that have:

  • Taken antibiotics (or any other prescription medication)
  • Used birth control pills
  • Eaten non-organic foods, high in sugars, grains (especially gluten) and starches (like potatoes)
  • Have metal dental fillings and have been vaccinated (exposed to mercury)
  • Consumed foods and beverages out of plastic containers
  • Drank beer, wine, or hard alcohol regularly
  • Consumed caffeine on a daily basis
  • Smoked cigarettes
  • Live with chronic underlying stress
