Western style diet impacts on memory inhibition; deterioration of cognitive processes.

thA new study, by Macquarie University, has revealed that memory inhibition is linked to dietary excess caused by the Western style diet.  Food memory blocks out memories linked to dietary excess and depends on a brain area called the hippocampus.  Thoughts of food are set aside when people are full and eating is no longer a priority. Continue reading “Western style diet impacts on memory inhibition; deterioration of cognitive processes.”

Monsanto’s Roundup a health risk to dairy cows and to the consumer.

roundupAnother study has demonstrated the devastating impact of the chronic ingestion of Roundup contained in genetically modified crop. Dairy cows from eight  were tested for the presence of  in urine. All cows tested who ingested genetically modified crops excreted  in urine. As milk is excreted by the cows as well, the assumption is that  will also be present in the dairy cow milk product.
