CARING for YOUR PRECIOUS CLOTHING
I received a beautiful dressing gown for Christmas. I looked at the laundering label and was a bit puzzled about what some of the symbols there represented. Then I found a good page on laundry, ironing and dry-cleaning symbols:

Eat Pure Foods for Good Health
Having avoided eating both fish and the bottom-feeders known as "shellfish" all my life, and known many people to have been poisoned by them, I'm happy to report that my instinct was good. Shellfish contain domoic acid, which is responsible for kidney damage in humans as well as in sea-creatures who live on them. Domoic acid from shellfish is also known to cause a brain-condition known as amnesic shellfish poisoning. On my page, "Elegant Health", there are several articles about the dangers of fish and seafood. Here is an instructive report from February, 2014:

Developed by renowned plastic surgeon Randal Haworth, MD, FACS, NightLift® is the first and only sleepwear collection specifically designed to protect the breasts and décolletage. During his 20 years of private practice in Beverly Hills, Dr. Haworth found that those breast patients who wore a bra while sleeping had higher, firmer bosoms. NightLift helps to prevent sagging and drooping over time by keeping the breasts perfectly immobile, but always comfortably supported.

The so-called "unretouched" photo of Cindy Crawford dressed as a rapper-thug, with her torso and legs bare, is causing a lot of comment. What it should tell women and girls of all ages is that getting a suntan is really stupid, and will be a source of regret later on, when formerly soft skin turns to something that looks and feels like elephant hide.

That's one of the many reasons why I never go out without gloves or fly without covering up completely. And now, with MERS or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome going around, flying is more dangerous than ever...ARTICLE

Dr. Joseph Mercola has written a new, encouraging article about the health-benefits of fiber (fibre).
Ingesting dietary fiber (also known as "roughage") can reduce one's chances of developing heart disease and diabetes, as well as help rid the system of yeast and other mycotoxins. Dr. Mercola explains and lists the many health-benefits of this essential diet-component HERE.

Since 2006, I have been writing about the benefits of wearing gloves. Now, there is more justification than ever for my admonitions and recommendations on the topic. Currently plaguing Americans and the rest of the world are norovirus and MRSA; the deadly ebola virus is rampant in Africa, and other antibiotic-resistant diseases are proliferating. Most of these viruses are spread by surface-contact. Wearing gloves while out in public, especially while shopping, and disinfecting them when you get home can save your life. And hospital-acquired diseases are now common, so do your best to avoid hospitals and other heath-clinics.
Hospital-acquired infections can be caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites; they are spread by touching contaminated surfaces, clothing and implements, or skin-contact with infected people. Viruses may be contracted from surgical procedures, catheters, or by inhaling airborne pathogens.
Common hospital infections are MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) and C Difficile.These micro-organisms may already exist dormantly in the patient's body or be contracted from the air, contaminated surfaces and hospital equipment, healthcare workers or other patients. Hospitals must employ pre-screening for MRSA or C-Difficile prior to surgery.
These infections and viruses are often resistant to antibiotics, and the lack of effective therapies may necessitate amputation of fingers or limbs. If you find yourself having to be in the hospital as a patient or visitor, wear disposable gloves before touching any surface, tool, item of clothing or person.
Relying on antibacterial gels and liquids is no longer adequate for self-protection against dangerous germs. Wearing gloves not only enhances your elegance, but will give you confidence in your safety and survival.

Here is what I said in 2010: a Payback to the Health Insurance Industry--and now, the government has let it slip that the insurance companies are going to be paid--after all, they DID support this corrupt, bait-and-switch scheme.

"The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic. Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people who wish doctors and treatment of their own choice to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers."
Dr. Benjamin Rush, the Father of American Medicine (1746--1813)

...you just might get it--so goes the old admonition. Some of us have been warning for years that "health insurance" is inimical to and totally different from "health care". It certainly is not synonymous with medical services. If huge corporations and other behemoths can deny you benefits and dwindle your budget while doing it, they will--that's their nature. Here's another ancient adage that ought to have come to mind in 2009: There IS NO Free Lunch!
Suddenly, those who insisted that the emperor's new clothes were something glorious are having a rude awakening. ENLIGHTENING ARTICLE
