A Daily Dose of Epsom Salt

a_daily_dose_of_epsom_salt_theflexifoodieThis is a favourite of mine that sadly seems to have declined in popularity in recent years. Epsom salt is more likely to be something your parents tell you about rather than something you have come across yourself. This mineral compound is made from sulphate and magnesium and has been used for many hundreds of years to treat a wide selection of minor health issues. As well as being used to cure ailments, Epsom salt can be used for various other reasons such as for beauty as well as around the home and garden.

One of the most common reasons people use Epsom salt is to alleviate stress. Stress can often be caused by heightened levels of adrenaline as well as a magnesium deficiency. Drawing yourself a hot bath and dissolving Epsom salt in the water will easily allow your skin to absorb it and this will replenish your magnesium…

SHRINKING SUNDERBANS THREAT TO BENGAL TIGER

Fast-disappearing mangrove forests of the Sunderbans pose a question mark over the future of the Royal Bengal Tiger, an endangered species, say scientists.

Rapid deterioration in mangrove health is causing as much as 200 metres of the vegetation-rich coast to disappear annually in the Sunderbans, according to zoologists.

Nathalie Pettorelli, from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and senior study author, said: “Our results indicate a rapidly retreating coastline that cannot be accounted for by the regular dynamics of the Sunderbans. Degradation is happening fast, weakening this natural shield for India and Bangladesh.”

Sunderbans is the largest block of continuous mangrove forest in the world, native to nearly 500 species of reptile, fish, bird and mammals, including the world famous Royal Bengal Tiger, the journal Remote Sensing reports.

Thriving human development, rising global temperatures, degradation of natural protection from tidal waves and cyclones is inevitably…

Cure Parkinson’s Trust sponsors experiments pumping primate brains full of harmful drugs

Animal welfare activists have begged a British charity to stop “profoundly disturbing” experiments on monkeys’ brains for medical research into Parkinson’s disease.

Campaign organisation Animal Aid issued a statement today denouncing the Cure Parkinson’s Trust for sponsoring Canadian scientists to inject monkeys with brain-damaging drugs.

“The vast majority of the British public do not want their money being used to fund profoundly disturbing experiments on animals,” said Animal Aid director Andrew Tyler.

In papers published in the Journal of Neuroscience and Public Library of Science ONE between 2011 and 2012, the testing was described as injecting marmoset monkeys with the chemical MPTP…
