Study adds to evidence that increasing dietary fiber reduces the risk of developing diabetes


Public Release: 26-May-2015


New research published today in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes) indicates that consuming greater quantities of dietary fibre reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Over 360 million people worldwide are estimated to be affected by diabetes, and this number is projected to increase to more than 550 million by 2030, with serious consequences for the health and economy of both developed and developing countries. While previous research has found an association between increased dietary fibre intake and a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes, most of these data come from the United States, and amounts and sources of fibre intake differ substantially between countries. In this article the authors evaluated the associations between total fibre as well as fibre from cereal, fruit, and vegetable sources, and new-onset type 2 diabetes in a large European cohort across…

Pit Bull Might Not Be A Licensed Health Practitioner, Still Gives The Best Medicine

Emilio Cogliani

Truck driver Chis Price was worried about more than just his health when he collapsed in Kansas City, Missouri, while out on a haul last month.

Price, whose home is in Tennessee, was even more concerned about his driving buddy: a sweet white pit bull named Coco — who’d been with him all over, nonstop, for seven years, and who was taken away by animal control as Price himself was carted off in an ambulance.

“Going to the pound 500 miles away from home, you just don’t know what’s going to happen,” Price told a local Fox affiliate.

There was good reason to be nervous. An estimated 3,000 pit bulls are killed in animal shelters across the country each day.

But Price was lucky. He’d gotten sick in a city that’s home to one of the country’s largest no-kill shelters, the Kansas City Pet Project — where workers were…

Serbia: ** URGENT Action by 27/5 – Please Act Before 27 May – Be a Voice for the Animals – URGENT **

Serbian Animals Voice (SAV)

Serbian  Flag

Picture 028

Dear All,

This is a late but very important and desperate plea for the animals in Serbia.

****  The current government plans – by tomorrow Wednesday 27th of May – to revert the present animal welfare law into a barbaric law that would go against virtually all animal welfare regulations that are standard in the EU.  ****

Although Serbia is not yet a member of the EU we cannot allow this to happen.

Boeing Unveils Amazing, Slightly Terrifying New Electromagnetic Pulse Weapon

Nwo Report


Born into Generation X, I grew up with the threat of nuclear war — and all its corollaries, from visions of mushroom clouds to “duck and cover” drills in high school to Terminator movies, and of course, the ever-present worry that one day a sneaky Soviet satellite would detonate way up in the sky and fry all of our electronics with an “electromagnetic pulse.”

So imagine my surprise when the U.S. Air Force confirmed last week that it’s developed an electromagnetic pulse weapon of its own, and that Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) is helping to build it.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory maps the areas likely to be blacked out in the event of a high-altitude nuclear EMP attack on the United States. Boeing’s area of effect will be considerably smaller. Image source: Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
