PETA Wants Lion-Hunting Dentist Killed
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) called for the execution of the American dentist who killed Cecil the lion in a statement Tuesday condemning the shooting. “Hunting is a coward’s pastime,” said PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in the statement. “If, as has been reported, this dentist and his guides lured Cecil out of the park with food so as to shoot him on private property, because shooting him in the park would have been illegal, he needs to be extradited, charged, and, preferably, hanged.” Walter James Palmer, a U.S. citizen from Minnesota, allegedly paid $50,000 to kill Ceci...

Controversial Oxygen Therapy ZAPS Cancer
Get more oxygen into your blood, and it instantly destroys infections, bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Oxygen can even destroy cancer cells without harming healthy cells. In today’s world, getting oxygen to your cells is not as easy as it used to be. Even simple nutritional deficiencies like a lack of omega-3s can prevent oxygen from reaching your cells. When my new wellness center opens in October, I’m introducing several new oxygen therapies including an overlooked yet powerful technology called ozone therapy. But ozone is controversial. It attracts attention from the Feds because it WORKS. And anything that ki...

Minnesota Dentist Named as Killer of Beloved Lion
A conservation group in Zimbabwe has named a dentist from Minnesota in the illegal killing of a beloved male lion. U.S. citizen Walter James Palmer allegedly paid $50,000 to kill Cecil, a 13-year-old male lion, on a game hunting trip, according to a report from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force. Zimbabwe authorities also told the Associated Press that Palmer was the individual accused of slaughtering the beast. Palmer said in a statement that he had hired guides to secure permits and that his hunting expedition was “legal and properly handled and conducted.” He has not been contacted by authorities, Palmer s...

The post Have you come across the friends and family test? appeared first on Hysterectomy Association.

5 Steps to Choosing Torture: Psychologists Breaking Bad
Earlier this month, a 542-page report was released, concluding that top officials of the American Psychological Association, including its ethics director, contorted and altered the association's ethics policies so the psychologists on the Pentagon's payroll could use their expertise to refine and expand methods of torture. The new "ethics light" guidelines concluded that it was appropriate for psychologists to remain involved with "enhanced" interrogations, to make sure they remained "safe, legal, ethical and effective". Kind of like having physicians preside over lynchings to ensure they are done humanely. Groucho Marx o...

Don't Forget To Brush Your Teeth. Seriously.
Brushing twice a day is good for your breath and gums and all, but it also helps out your whole body.  Francesco D’Aiuto, senior lecturer at the Eastman Dental Institute in London, chatted with The Guardian about what he refers to as the the "mouth-body connection," or the idea that a healthy body is strongly correlated with good dental hygiene.  “The mouth is not disconnected from the rest of the body,” he explained. "People should not underestimate what the body senses when the mouth is neglected." What exactly is D'Aiuto referring to when he talks about neglecting the mouth? Gum disease, for ...

UCLA study finds that a protein that helps suppress cancer fades as we age
Researchers at UCLA have found that a protein that serves as a suppressor of cancer diminishes in skin and mouth epithelial cells as the human body ages. Dr. No-Hee Park, dean of the UCLA School of Dentistry, and his research team have been studying p53, a tumor suppressor protein known as “the guardian of the genome” because of its involvement in DNA repair, cell cycle regulation and cellular deterioration. “Looking at ways to maintain levels of p53 as one ages may provide a therapeutic clue to preventing cancer development,” said Park, who is also a distinguished professor in the departments of dentistry and medi...

For such a seemingly innocent substance, gum has a lot of enemies. Parochial school teachers have notoriously handed out demerits for chomping on the elastic breath-freshener.

Gum and the war against it have ancient origins.
