The Hangover Research Institute is the first research institution dedicated to the study and treatment of veisalgia. Hangovers have plagued mankind for more than 2500 years. Galen and Hippocrates — both Greek philosophers and physicians — discuss the symptoms of hangovers in their writings. As the physician who has treated more hangovers than any other doctor in the world, Dr. Burke believes the Hangover Heaven Research Institute is medically necessary and long overdue as a scientific facility dedicated to the study and treatment of veisalgia.

A second chance for the labeling of genetically-engineered foods
California senate bill SB1381 is due to come out of committee later this week. This bill would require the labeling of genetically-engineered foods. Concern about the ill effects of these foods has continued to grow. Besides that is the possibility that other countries to whom we export are going to prohibit the import of these foods. This means there is are financial risks as well as a health risk to these foods. In another blog I will discuss concerns about the herbicide, glyphosate, that is used on some of the genetically-engineered crops.

Common ailments you might not realize are connected to your gut
The GI tract functions to breakdown and eliminate food, but the functions don’t end here. The food you are eating must be properly absorbed to be used for fuel. Eighty percent of your immune system lives in your gut, 95 percent of our serotonin is made there, hormones and toxic substances are excreted through the GI tract, and so on and so on.
Walsh Research Institute
Epigenetics is the system that determines gene regulation in humans. We have more than 20,000 genes and the only function of each gene is to make a specific protein. If the protein promotes a chemical reaction, it is called an enzyme. Every cell in the body contains an identical copy of DNA, but every tissue requires a unique combination of proteins and enzymes for optimal health. This selective production of proteins is achieved in early fetal development by a remarkable process called "bookmarking."
