Onions and Garlic ... “Powerful" in More Ways Than One

By Jon Herring

If you’re like me and enjoy the taste of garlic and onions - and you eat them often - you’re doing a lot more than adding some flavor to your meals. You could be adding years to your life.

The allium plants - particularly onions, shallots, and garlic - have been used as food and medicine for thousands of years. And modern science has confirmed that these pungent vegetables are some of the most medicinally potent foods we can eat. Hundreds of population and laboratory studies have shown that they have strong anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and immune-boosting qualities.

Onions, shallots, and garlic have also been shown to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, and normalize blood pressure. And a large Italian study, recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, shows a strong inverse correlation between onion and garlic consumption and cancers of the mouth, esophagus, breast, ovaries, kidneys, and prostate.

So whenever you have a chance to slice a shallot for your salad, put an onion on your sandwich, or press some garlic to go with your mixed vegetables, do it!

Antidepressant Controversy Among Top 2006 Health News Stories

According to Forbes, controversy over the link between antidepressants and suicide was among the top ten health-related news stories in 2006. On December 13th the FDA pharmacological committee voted to extend the black box suicide warning on antidepressants for children and teenagers up to 18 years old, to include young adults up to 25 years of age. The extended warning garnered major national media and public concern over the growing debate of antidepressants being prescribed to millions.

Financial ties between FDA members and pharmaceutical companies added fuel to the fire. Forbes reported that another top health news issue in 2006 was the controversy over the financial ties between researchers and regulators and the drug companies whose products they review. Forbes reported, “Over at the FDA, critics hit regulators with charges of bias and industry interference after debacles such as the withdrawal of painkillers Vioxx and Bextra and continuing controversies over the emergency contraceptive Plan B and SSRI [Selective Serontonin Reuptake Inhibitor] antidepressants. The agency’s critics gained ammunition from research published in April in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study found that three-quarters of the FDA’s advisory panels included members who had conflicts of interest due to financial ties to industry."

The concern over compromising financial ties between psychiatric researchers, drug regulators and the pharmaceutical industry was reinforced by a February study on antidepressant use during pregnancy, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, which revealed that most of the 13 authors of the study had significant, and previously undisclosed, financial ties to the makers of antidepressants.

In spite of these vested interests, the side effects of psychiatric drugs are increasingly coming to light as the public and watchdog groups insist regulators publicize the dangers of psychiatric drugs, now acknowledged by the FDA to cause suicide, homicidal ideation, mania, psychosis, heart attack, stroke and sudden death.

Having just bought a big compost bin (Aerobin 4000 if you are interested) this was long article on what makes up good soil and how humans are dependent upon it More

A Resource-Friendly Gardening Book for the End of Oil from New Society Publishers “Gardening When it Counts: Growing Food in Hard Times" by Steve Solomon. It is predicted that Gardening When It Counts will become one of the all-time classics of gardening and self-sufficiency.

The opening lines in this Keith Olbermann video commentary on MSNBC accurately sum up the sudden fearful surprise of the corporate media with the signing by G. W. Bush of the “Military Commissions Act."

"We have lived as if in a trance. We have lived as people in fear. Now, our freedoms and rights in peril, we slowly awaken to learn that we have been afraid of the wrong thing."

Well, it may be a little late for this, but G. W. Bush is being publically denounced in the corporate media as a tyrant (by association with past tyrants at least).

This video More is not just some conspiracy theory hack job. This is MSNBC now. This is the corporate media, which has long been used as a blunt instrument by Bush and Cheney, reporting ex/actly what they have been told to report, no matter how putrid, obvious or one-eyed. When THEY get scared, it’s time for ALL OF US to wake up!

Olbermann is upset because he’s reading the obituary on Habeus Corpus. Removing Habeus Corpus is the technical term for what can colloqually be called, “The Gitmo Treatment" - arrest without rights or charge, guilty until proven innocent, no right to legal counsel, no right to a speedy trial, no right to a trial by jury. A trial (if any) will be conducted by a military court, where they can make it up as they go along. Well now, with the Military Commissions Act, it’s not just dumb Arabs that can get it in the neck. Now, surprise surprise, it can happen to AMERICAN CITIZENS.

Watch the video, and then get everyone you know with an IQ over 100 to watch it too. It’s not too late, unless of course you have already disappeared. :(


PS. To my non-American friends, I would ask you to promote this issue too, because no country is immune to the erosion of liberty, and SILENCE is an absolute requirement of tyranny.
