Endocrine disruptors: New discoveries and possible progress of evaluation
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Life organization requires a sophisticated communication system between and inside cells; it has been well preserved throughout evolution. Hormones are the main leaders of this messenger system, which becomes more and more complex in multicellular beings. They act in the nervous and reproductive systems and are sensitive to environmental interactions. For a half-century of intensification of the industrial era, more than 5 million man-made chemicals have been released in the environment without recycling, as if the ecosystems were infinite. More

What a clinician needs to know about nutrient density, pesticides, genetically engineered foods
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Andersen Endrocrine disruption, infertility, spontaneous abortion, low testosterone and xenoestrogen effects have become commonplace. The prevailing mindset is that such issues must be genetic and solvable with drug intervention or stem-cell therapy. As environment determines genetic expression it must be understood that all these hormone-related ailments are associated with the current food quality crisis, genetically engineered foods along with glyphosate and other herbicide/pesticide effects.

Even low blood-lead levels linked to gout risk
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Even relatively low levels of lead in the blood may be linked to an increased risk of gout, a painful form of arthritis, researchers reported. Researchers have known that heavy lead exposure is linked to the condition — a form of arthritis in which the joints periodically become swollen, red and hot.

Healing With Language: The power of voice
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
English has two forms of voice: active and passive. In active voice sentences, the subject of the sentence performs the action designated by the sentence. In passive voice, the subject of the sentence receives the action of the verb:

Active voice: I threw the ball.
Passive voice: The ball was thrown by me.

The difference between active and passive voice is important because voice has a subtle influence on communication. In the U.S., we currently have the opportunity to observe the psychological implications in voice in the political speech being used as candidates vie for office:

Active voice: My opponent has lied, cheated, and stolen.
Passive voice: Mistakes were made.

Active voice sentences emphasize the relationship between the "agent" and the action. It implies responsibility: "I threw the ball." Passive voice sentences reduce responsibility for the action: "The ball was thrown." This is an important distinction in critical communication. Note the differences in the following sentences:

Active voice: I love you.
Passive voice: You are loved. [By whom?]

Active voice: Take one of these pills twice a day.
Passive voice: The pills should be taken twice a day. [By whom?]

Active voice: You made a mistake. [Ouch!]
Passive voice: A mistake was made. [We both know who made it.]

Active voice: Remember the difference between active and passive voice.
Passive voice: The difference between active and passive voice should be remembered.

When you really want someone to perform an action, follow a direction or know who is responsible for doing what when, use active voice. When you want to reduce responsibility for an action and avoid an accusatory tone, use passive voice.
