Adoçantes artificiais e produtos ‘light’ causam mais infartos e doenças cardíacas

Para algumas pessoas, refrigerantes com rótulos ‘light’ são uma boa escolha para a saúde. Outros, acreditam que a comida ‘sem açúcar’ pode ser uma boa opção para perder peso. Mas não aos olhos dos cientistas. De acordo com uma pesquisa recente, que colocou os efeitos dos edulcorantes sob controle, o consumo excessivo de refrigerantes aparentemente sem açúcar pode ter consequências negativas para a saúde. Os pesquisadores examinaram a associação ...Read full article...

Eating ‘unsweetened’ and ‘light’ products can cause more strokes and heart disease

For some people, soft drinks with ‘light’ labels are a good choice for health. Others believe that sugarless food might be a good choice to lose weight, but not in the eyes of scientists. According to recent research, which has put the effects of sweeteners under scrutiny, excessive consumption of apparently unsweetened soft drinks could have negative consequences for health. Researchers examined the association between sugar-free drinks, stroke and ...Read full article...

Technology shapes our human identity

The human essence is modified by technology every day. We can’t see it or feel it. It just happens every time we interact with computers, cellphones, tablets and other devices. Advances in the digital era lead us to new brain-machine interfaces that could modify our mental abilities, for better and for worse. We know that human brains have been changing, adapting and developing for centuries in response to external ...Read full article...

Your home’s air poisoned by cleaning products

Not even inside our homes are we safe from atmospheric pollution if we do not take the proper precautions. Some culinary practices and housecleaning work -especially if we dust or use chemicals- increase pollution levels in cities already considered highly contaminated. This is the main conclusion of a study led by researchers from the University of Colorado in the United States, whose preliminary results presented last month at the ...Read full article...

American Physicians and Surgeons “STRONGLY OPPOSE” mandatory vaccines

Tensions are high regarding vaccines lately. Due to a measles outbreak in the United States, frightened people are pushing an agenda to take an important medical decision out of the hands of parents. They’re calling for federally mandated vaccines. They’re calling for the shaming of parents who have chosen not to vaccinate their children. The hysteria is running high, fueled by fear and memes. Whether you opt to vaccinate ...Read full article...

Digital Isolation may be the only way to protect yourself from cyber crimes

Powerful governments understand the dangers of being on the grid and are already creating their own internet infrastructure, independent of the world wide web. A good part of the soldiers of our day does not carry firearms. Not even knives, unless the keyboard of a computer or a wireless mouse can be considered sharp elements. Neither are the battlefields the same: wars between nations take place on the internet and ...Read full article...

Playing with hunger and misery in Venezuela

Humanitarian aid, according to international law, is by definition neutral and impartial. Its purpose is to save lives. This was recalled by the vice secretary general of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, former environment minister of Nigeria, during a meeting with journalists in Madrid on Tuesday. “We are very clear on the principles of humanitarian aid, and in the case of Venezuela there is an attempt to politicize it”, ...Read full article...

The “natural flavor” trap in processed food

Pay attention and you will see something strange in the supermarket. Food brands begin to promote their products with claims that are difficult to understand. For example, the already “100% vegetable” idea, the oatmeal drink of a well-known brand is presented to the buyer with two curious words: “natural flavor”.  But what does that mean? The truth is that we do not agree on what such a brief message ...Read full article...

Russia needs economic re-education and Nationalism

Putin’s approval rating is high, but it has declined over the past year. The decline is mainly related to domestic policy.  Apparently, the public perceives recent Kremlin economic policy as a continuation of the disastrous policies that Washington imposed on Russia in the 1990s when Russia was loaded up with foreign debt while state assets were privatized and plundered by oligarchs sponsored by the West who “cashed out” by selling ...Read full article...

Was the Kim-Trump Summit in Hanoi, Sabotaged by Mike Pompeo?

“If Kim Jong-un suddenly dies, don’t ask me about it”… Given the history of the CIA, I’m just not going to talk about it,” (Pompeo, October 2017). And you expect the DPRK to trust Washington’s Chief Negotiator? Polite diplomacy over the dinner table. Smiles on both sides. A nice private dinner. “Everybody is having a good time. Hope so”, says Trump. Trump and Kim met before the formal dinner ...Read full article...

Compound Individual, Public and Corporate debt total 225% of global GDP

John Maynard Keynes once said, “if I owe you a pound, I have a problem; but if I owe you a million, the problem is yours.” Keynes’ reasoning seems to be the guide being followed by global corporations. When the global debt bomb explodes, corporations, including banks, will not have enough cash in hand to pay back investments. The previous description regarding the future of the global debt problem ...Read full article...

Space is the next great War frontier

The notion of real-time star wars, possibly with nukes and/or other super-weapons, should terrify everyone. The 1967 Outer Space Treaty bans nations from placing WMDs (not conventional weapons) in earth orbit or otherwise in outer space. It restricts use of celestial bodies to peaceful purposes, bans space bases and outer space weapons testing. The 1963 Limited Test Ban Treaty prohibits nuclear testing in outer space. The 1972 SALT I ...Read full article...

El espacio es la próxima gran frontera de guerra

La noción de guerras estelares en tiempo real, posiblemente con armas nucleares y / u otras súper armas, debería aterrorizar a todos. El Tratado del Espacio Exterior de 1967 prohíbe a las naciones colocar armas de destrucción masiva (armas no convencionales) en órbita terrestre o de otra manera en el espacio exterior. Limita el uso de cuerpos celestes para fines pacíficos, prohíbe las bases espaciales y las pruebas de ...Read full article...
