A quick Investigation into the health benefits of high pH Water

Filed under: Health — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — Paddy Wallbouncer @ 9:22 pm 2016 January 15

Higher pH water is supposed to be good for you. Makers can quote this conculsion from the National Institutes of Health:

  • Unlike conventional drinking water, pH 8.8 alkaline water instantly denatures pepsin, rendering it permanently inactive. In addition, it has good acid-buffering capacity. Thus, the consumption of alkaline water may have therapeutic benefits for patients with reflux disease.”

But would drinking high pH water be any different than dissolving tums in (more…)

This Fukushima video explains the devastating World Impact, and the new extreme clear and present danger in which all humans live in 2013. Since we have advanced so much since the 1950’s isn’t it time to try something else? If this video is to be believed, it may be too late already.

Ronald Reagan Speech a Poor Attack on Modern Healthcare

Filed under: Health — Tags: , , , , , , — Paddy Wallbouncer @ 11:12 am 2013 September 30

Using Ronalds Reagan’s 1961 speech is a poor attack on modern healthcare. Listening to the 10 minute monologue is time well invested from the standpoint of understand how easily people can be moved by an authoritative figure. I always like Ronald Reagan as a president, because his ability to speak was so well honed. Ron could motivate people with his voice. This is what everyone is looking for in a leader. Well, that, and somebody who is forwarding “the right thing to do.” In 1961 America, the right thing to do was to worry about the bomb, rightly or wrongly, as the future will tell, not the well being of the citizenry through healthcare. Using this historical example takes out of context the priorities faced by the people of that bygone era.

Ron say’s: “One of the traditional methods of imposing stateism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine”

Huh? “A traditional method of imposing socialism”

I had no idea there was a time tested method of installing socialism or capitalism for that matter. Ron say’s (paraphrased around 6:34 “that we will take the freedoms of doctors by dictating where they live” end paraphrase) -This doesn’t happen now? and hasn’t happened in every walk of life? Stop waving that “limiting of freedoms” flag. Nobody’s really “free” here or anywhere for that matter. While we were living “free” in the 1960’s USA for example, Russians were going to work, collecting their pay, and spending their weekends down by the river, just like the people of my USA hometown.

Self serving interest has the wealth and ability to paint hundreds of millions of people as living and contributing to “an evil empire.” Hooey to that and Hooey to the present day healthcare system in the United States. The healthcare machine has got to stop the looting in the name of capitalism, especially when it comes to human health. If it weren’t so blatant and ingrained in the process, socialized medicine wouldn’t be an issue. (Really, did I just say Hooey?) Couldn’t one say that the fact that insurance companies even exist is proof that a government by and for the people has failed?

Biker Think! Ad from UK

Europe on a motorcycle. This is an excellent PSA (Public Service Announcement) from the BBC (British Broadcasting System). The etymology of this ad is unclear, but it seems it first played somewhere in the US, then they made up one that aired in the early 00’s in England. This is that ad. Later some other US states have re-created the ad again, and in different ways (with texting and all) No doubt the message is powerful. And quick.

We’ll keep you informed of this and other entertaining news.

Google Health Records

Filed under: Computers and Technology,Health — Tags: , , , — Paddy Wallbouncer @ 9:55 am 2008 February 21

Google is going into the health record keeping business. They’re testing a system with the Cleveland Clinic where patients can look up their information online. The patient can control who gets to see their online records.

Anyone who’s visited the doctor in the last few years is aware about privacy requirements on the part of the provider. The United States enacted legislation called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. (HIPAA) This legislation protects the individual by making sure the patient gives clear consent to parties requesting information. The problem is, it has (more…)
