fasting for arterial plague breakdown
> In this comparison, the odds of having a CAD diagnosis was 45 per cent lower among fasting patients.
>Speculating on the findings, the researchers emphasized that the results did not prove that fasting caused less CAD, but they did suggest a new hypothesis. Perhaps it was down to timing, said Horne:
>"When you abstain from food for 24 hours or so, it reduces the constant exposure of the body to foods and glucose."
>"One of the major problems in the development of the metabolic syndrome and the pathway to diabetes is that the insulin-producing beta cells become desensitized. Routine fasting may allow them to resensitize - to reset to a baseline level so they work better."
And a reviewed paper pointed out that the real dangers are of QT extensions in the heart in very obese people who do not supplement with postassium and magnesium and do true water only fast for more than a month associated with heart arrythmia and sudden death.
cyclodextrose for areterial plaque breakdown
>Dissolving away cholesterol
Cardiovascular disease resulting from atherosclerosis is one of the most common causes of death worldwide, and additional therapies for this disease are greatly needed because not all patients can be effectively treated with existing approaches. Cyclodextrin is a common FDA-approved substance that is already used as a solubilizing agent to improve delivery of various drugs. Now, Zimmer et al. have discovered that cyclodextrin can also solubilize cholesterol, removing it from plaques, dissolving cholesterol crystals, and successfully treating atherosclerosis in a mouse model. Because cyclodextrin is already known to be safe in humans, this drug is now a potential candidate for testing in human patients for the treatment of atherosclerosis.
>Fats and cholesterol that build up along the insides of blood vessels can limit the flow of blood around the heart, causing heart attacks or strokes. To treat this condition, called atherosclerosis, millions of Americans take drugs every day—the most popular of these, statins, alone cost up to $13 billion per year in 2014, and these don’t work for every patient. Now scientists have discovered that a compound already approved by the FDA can dissolve away this buildup in the blood vessels more effectively than existing treatments. The researchers published their study today in Science Translational Medicine.
>The compound is called beta-cyclodextrin, and it’s already used in some pharmaceuticals to bind the active drug to fatty acids in the body where it is most needed.
>Now, here's the good news: beta-cyclodextrin is also the main ingredient used to make powdered alcohol. Pour booze into a heap of cyclodextrin, and the alcohol molecules cling to the ring-shaped cyclodextrin molecules, making a fluffy dry powder that packs a punch.
Drug for Rare Disorder Linked to Reducing Cholesterol Plaque
Compound being tested in a genetic condition showed promise in treating heart disease in mice
Cyclodextrin, a compound now in testing to treat a very rare genetic disease, may have a potential use in treating a much more common condition too: heart disease.
Researchers reported Wednesday in Science Translational Medicine that in mice, cyclodextrin was able to reduce plaque and dissolve cholesterol crystals, which some research suggests could play a role in atherosclerosis, or narrowing of the arteries.

Avoid ammonia at all costs to avoid mental deterioration http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/abs/10.1108/09566160010372608
Describes how a large ammonia release exposed about 150 nearby residents to this irritating gas and sent seven to hospital emergency rooms. Six weeks later the 41 most symptomatic people completed questionnaires and had physical examinations. The 12 most impaired had subsequent neurobehavioral testing to see if exogenous ammonia was toxic to the brain as is endogenous ammonia in hepatic coma. Spirometry was used to test pulmonary function. Frequencies of 35 symptoms were obtained by questionnaire, as were medical, respiratory and neuropsychiatric histories and data on previous chemical exposures. Comparisons were made with unexposed subjects after adjusting for age, sex, educational level and other determining factors. The exposed group’s mean values were significantly abnormal for simple and choice reaction, balance with eyes open, color discrimination, visual field performance in both eyes and hearing. Also abnormal were cognitive performance on Culture Fair, digit symbol, vocabulary and delayed but not immediate verbal recall. Making trails A and B was slow and fingertip number writing had excessive errors. Spirometric measurements were normal. Confounding features and biases were minimal. Exposure to ammonia, for a few minutes to several hours, was associated with neurobehavioral impairment measured after 22 months. Thus inhaled ammonia shares the toxicity of endogenous ammonia. Effects were persistent and are probably permanent.
which I posted about some time ago in r/science https://www.reddit.com/r/science/comments/2zho8m/exposure_to_airborne_ammonia_caused_measurable/
Based on this article, I began to wonder if exposure of the elderly to the smell of ammonia in bathrooms and places were the elderly sometimes reside because of the storage of adult underwear before throwing them away might actually cause some mental deterioration in the elderly. Could this possibly be a partial factor in mental deterioration?
So I did some google searching for concentrations of ammonia gas caused by urine and this article popped up.
It turns out decomposing urine causes huge amounts of ammonia gas at levels that are in fact very harmful and could indeed cause both lung and mental deterioration in animals and humans.
From the above linked article http://www.thehorse.com/articles/16534/ammonia-is-the-enemy
According to OSHA regulations, employers cannot expose construction workers to ammonia concentrations of more than 50 ppm.
"That ruling was not chosen arbitrarily," Hayes points out. "It was based on the established long-term, chronic effect on the respiratory system and the eyes."
Hayes became curious about ammonia levels in horse barns after seeing the OSHA standard. Following the guidelines set by OSHA, she started testing stables using a Drager, a small, bellow-like tool that takes air-quality samples. The results surprised her. "I've gone to fancy, multi million-dollar show barns, lifted up mats, and measured ammonia levels at 450 ppm," she says.
Whether a barn houses high-end performance horses or trusted lesson ponies, ammonia takes its toll on the animals' athletic abilities and their overall quality of life. The cough related to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or heaves, is often considered an unavoidable result of aging, but research suggests these conditions are exacerbated by ammonia exposure, says Fredrick Harper, PhD, equine extension specialist for the University of Tennessee's Department of Agriculture.
"It's been suggested that a level of just 10 ppm causes problems in other animals, such as calves," Harper says. "It appears that levels in horse stalls are probably so much that we might be challenging or damaging foals."
Ventilate your bathrooms and dispose of adult underwear promptly. It could be a serious source of airborne ammonia toxicity in your home leading to PERMANENT brain damage
A human can smell it at 50 ppm according to the above article so if you can smell it its bad.
A quick google earch https://www.google.com/search?q=are+adult+underwear+toxic leads to quite a lot of other chemicals in both baby and adult undergarments that are toxic.
EU health claims for fructose and alpha-cyclodextrin become law

Two naturally-occurring compounds--curcumin (the active ingredient in the spice turmeric) and the green tea extract epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) have marked effects on the apoptotic machinery in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). These results provide a preclinical foundation for future clinical use of these compounds in this disease.

Investigation of curcumin-cyclodextrin inclusion complexation in aqueous solutions containing various alcoholic co-solvents and alginates using an UV-VIS titration method. Studies of curcumin and curcuminoides, XXXV.
Hegge AB1, Másson M, Kristensen S, Tønnesen HH.
The effect of pharmaceutical excipients like alcoholic co-solvents and water-soluble polymers on the inclusion complexation of curcumin in hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin and hydroxypropyl-gamma-cyclodextrin was investigated with a UV-VIS titration method. The association constants and the stoichiometries of the inclusion complexes in buffered media containing various amounts dl of alcoholic co-solvents and alginates were determined. The results showed a 1 : 1 stoichiometry between curcumin and both the cyclodextrins investigated in buffered media containing 10% (v/v) alcoholic co-solvents, although some 1 : 2 (host:guest) complexation was suspected between curcumin and hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin. The presence of 0.1% (w/v) sodium alginate or propylene glycol alginate did apparently not change the stoichiometry of the complexes formed. Curcumin was found to have a more than 30-fold higher association constant with hydroxypropyl-gamma-cyclodextrin compared to hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin in buffer containing 0.5% ethanol. Large variation in the association constants between curcumin and the cyclodextrins as a result of different co-solvents in the aqueous complexing media were found. A decrease in the association constant was seen as the chain lenght of the added co-solvent increased. Further, a decrease in the association constants was observed by addition of alginates in the case of hydroxypropyl-gamma-cyclodextrin at 0.5 or 5% (v/v) ethanol. The trend was opposite in the case of hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin, where a 30-90% increase in the association constant was observed in the presence of alginates. The results in the current study showed the large variations in the complexation between curcumin and hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin and hydroxypropyl-gamma-cyclodextrin, resepctively, as a result of various alcoholic co-solvents and alginates in the complexing media. The results also illustrated the importance of optimizing the solvent systems when utilizing cyclodextrins as drug carriers.

November 2007 *****The Hollywood Writer's Strike Coverage*****
Recently I have begun reporting on the Hollywood writer's strike picket lines. It is the first strike I have ever reported on and I am sure for many americans around my age they have never been involved in a strike either.
It is an interesting experience I can tell you! I am going to present a real inside look at it and you will be able to walk the picket lines with me.
The strike effort involves the WGA writers and is supported by SAG and many actors icluding the casts of many Hollywood TV shows including The Unit, Desperate Housewives, Big Love, Las Vegas and many more. Television production is rapidly shutting on almost all the Tv shows although there are some movies still shooting.
I have photographed actors such as Bill Paxton, Gary Cole, Ray Ramono, Doug Savant, Minnie driver, Sara Silverman, Kathy Griffin, Eva Longoria, Robert Patrick and many more on the picket lines. Most of these actors are people I know and I have worked with because I have been on about 100 productions in the last 2 or 3 years usually as a non speaking actor (although I have gotten a few speaking parts lately).
I have interviewed some of these writers and actors and will be posting those videos here.
The first of several news stories and videos will be linked here.
The first video is a news photo essay called "The Writers Cause" can be watched for free on the internet on metacafe.com.
Please rate it highly with Metacafe and vote it up so it will gain more visibility for the writer's cause!

Renowned aviator Steve Fossett is missing after taking off from a Nevada Airstrip on Sept 3rd at 9am.
****Oct. 2007 Updated!****
I became heavily involved in locating the most high tech equipment and methods available to be used in the search. A person's life was a stake and I knew I could bring some resources and fast focus to this that would otherwise not be available to the man's family. Although unfortunately we have not yet been able to locate his aircraft, I brought some techniques and equipment to the search that had never before been used to search for a downed aircraft. The story and thanks to those experts around arounfd the country who helped me assemble the technology and the team will go here soon.
Original post from early September:
I have found an indication of a mountain top fire from a Sept 3rd 11:35 AM PST MODIS NASA satellite photo in the general search area.
NASA Modis satellites take high rez photos of all parts of earth each day and automatically identify fire signatures on the ground they fly over. I searched the sept 3rd photo for Southern California taken at 11:35 PST and noticed an automatic fire identification red square on the satellite image in the high mountains just west of Morro Lake which is just west of the search area.
The search team HAS BEEN NOTIFIED and they contacted me and are following up on this possible lead.
I hope it can help find this aviation pioneer in time. One can hope so since just yesterday a person was found alive after an unrelated car accident after having been trapped in his car for 7 days.
Look at the modis image here.(right click on it and say open in new tab or open in new window.)
The MODIS image indicating a small fire on that morning in the general area Steve Fossett went missing
It is the small red square on the mountain tops directly west of Morro Lake.
Start at San Franciso bay and go East. when you hit the snowy mountains just west of the round lake on the other side (Morro Lake) you will see a small red square the satelite system automatically places when it thinks it has found a fire.
Further analysis in Google earth of this area shows a small grey blur typical of smoke on a satellite image in a relatively cleared pine forest on a mountaintop on the way to San Fran from Morro lake so it is a conceivable ditch site.

***The DC madam's Phone records effort***
(Temporarily offline due to increased traffic)
We are hosting a fast, partial and NOT cross checked and not completed electronic index of the phone records images recently published by Deborah Jeane Palfrey. She has become known as the "DC Madam" and she ran "Pamela Martin and Associates".
Ms. Palfrey made photos of her phone records available on her web site, www.deborahjeanepalfrey.com.
Within minutes reddit.com readers elevated a project to get together and process those record images so they could begin to determine who was on the list. I was drawn to this project because of the technical challenge, and becuase I thought it would likely would expose some truth about some of those politicians making moral pronouncements. It was just a gut feeling which proved true as a Congress member's phone number was found on the list. I became one of the primary team members and we quickly made fast progress using advanced techniques.
Our efforts at http://redditgoestodc.pbwiki.com have resulted in several partial phone lists converted to actual data. It was done with great speed and little cross checking and therefore absolutely should not be considered accurate.
This list used automatic OCR processes to look at the images and have the computer attempt to read the phone numbers. Then that list was reduced so all duplicate phone numbers were removed. It is only partially complete as the group hasn't finished scanning all the phone records in yet.
You can be assured this list has errors and wrong numbers. It should be used only as a guide for quick reference and other automated attempts to scan the numbers and THEN THAT PHONE NUMBER SHOULD BE MANUALLY RECHECKED ON THE ORIGINAL IMAGE FILES TO SEE IF THE NUMBER LISTED IN THIS LIST IS IN FACT ON HER RECORDS. It quite possibly could be a transcription error on this list.
Remember also that some of these phone numbers go back years. People who have them today may not have had those phone numbers years ago.
With the link below you can know the numbers that appeared the most!
