Safest Inexpensive Medicines for the World

If one has a heart, for humanity, one would choose a list of affordable medicines that are safe and easy to administer so that even the poor could afford them. It is highly insensitive for modern medicine to promote medicines that most people cannot afford. The worst examples of this are the new medicines oncologists are beginning to use, instead of chemotherapy, that stimulate the immune system. It does not help the competition between modern pharmacology and the natural medicines we are presenting here that most pharmaceuticals are mitochondria poisons that do not cure people of anything.

Graphene to Fight Mosquitoes — What Are the Risks?

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Graphene, a carbon-based nanomaterial, is often described as a “wonder material”
  • It’s lightweight, flexible, invisible to the naked eye and strong, and also is an efficient conductor of heat and electricity, with antibacterial properties
  • Graphene works to prevent mosquito bites, deterring them by acting as both a mechanical and chemical barrier, provided it’s dry (when wet, mosquitoes weren’t deterred by graphene)
  • There are concerns graphene could be inhaled, enter cells and pose respiratory and other health and environmental effects
  • There’s not enough information to accurately assess whether or not graphene — and its many variations — is safe for human health and the environment

Study Reveals It’s Never Too Late to Start Exercising

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Research shows untrained individuals in their 70s and 80s have the same capacity to build muscle as lifelong athletes of the same age, proving it’s never too late to get fitter 
  • Without resistance training, your muscles will atrophy and lose mass. Sarcopenia (age-related loss of muscle mass) affects 10% to 25% of seniors under the age of 70 and up to half of those over the age of 80
  • If you do nothing to prevent sarcopenia, you can expect to lose about 15% of your muscle mass between your 30s and your 80s
  • Other benefits of resistance training include improved walking ability and ability to perform daily tasks, relief from joint pain, improved blood sugar control, improved brain health and slowed brain aging
  • Blood flow restriction training may be an ideal muscle-strengthening strategy for most people, but especially for the elderly and the untrained, as it requires just a fraction of the weight you’d typically use in conventional resistance training

Do You Have Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)?

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Peripheral vertigo is a form of dizziness involving your inner ear. The most common cause of peripheral vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • BPPV occurs when crystal deposits in your inner ear become dislodged and end up in your ear canal. The crystals disrupt the flow of the fluids, thereby confusing your balance organs, resulting in vertigo — the feeling of movement or spinning even though you’re stationary
  • If a doctor diagnoses you with BPPV, he or she may recommend physical therapy to shift the crystal deposits in your inner ear into a location that won’t affect your balance
  • There are several different particle repositioning procedures that can accomplish this, including the Epley and Foster maneuvers. If you suspect you have BPPV, you can also try these at home to achieve relief. Instructions are included
  • BPPV that is unresponsive to repositioning maneuvers may be treated with the drug betahistine. An all-natural alternative is to take ginkgo biloba, which has been shown to be just as effective as betahistine
