2:04 One common factor of infertility is an early menopause. This is fairly common with heavy smokers, chemotherapy treatment, and those that are exposed to heavy radiations. This is also one of the top reasons why older women can't get pregnant. There are also some underlying medical problems that prevent a couple from having a child. Thyroid problems and undiagnosed diabetes can all lead to infertility. An undiagnosed STD can also case infertility. Yet, no matter how numerous the factors of infertility there is, there are still 25 to 30% cases of infertility which the reason behind was never found. This, according to doctors is due to lack of diagnosis. The bottom line is no matter how healthy you and your partner may be, that doesn't give you a 100% guarantee of having a child. The reasons for infertility are not always observable. So when should you ask for help getting pregnant? According to the American Association of Reproductive Medicine, if a couple has not achieved pregnancy after one year of unprotected sex, they should seek professional help getting pregnant. Also, if a woman is more than 35 years of age, she shouldnt wait for long. If you or your partner have any risk factors or symptoms of infertility, then waiting is no longer a good option . Like if a woman has irregular periods or if either partner has a history of sexually transmitted diseases, seeking help right away makes sense.

Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body. However, what most people don't realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat. There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

Discover the Secrets of Weight Loss and Sexuality This article describes weight loss and sexuality, that being overweight directly affects our sexuality, particularly the obese. For all of us that are overweight, either a little or a lot, research shows, for example, that being overweight affects our sex drive. This is key to understanding the relationship between weight loss and sexuality. A key fact: less fat means more energy, and more energy means more interest in sex. Being overweight has its consequences for us all. It affects your sex drive. It can lead to depression for both sexes. Testosterone and weight loss and sexuality Overweight men show lower levels of testosterone, reducing sexual desire, and consequently, a lower interest in sexual activity. Understanding these points are the first steps towards reducing weight and your increased sexuality. In one study, after a weight loss regimen that reduced a body mass index by only 5%, the majority of men reported higher interest in sex. Again, less fat equals more energy and increased sexual desire. Start now with the attitude to lose weight by doing a little bit each day. But first, keep in mind the big picture: sex and sexual desire are a combination of physical ability, hormones, enzyme levels, emotional behavior and social learning. Being overweight reduces physical stamina, particularly with reduction of lung capacity. Also, the development of overweight-related diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and metabolic syndrome (when multiple risk factors occur together), increase the risk of coronary artery disease and stroke, effectively reducing sexual desire. These important points provide a better understanding of the relationship between weight loss and sexuality. And those high cholesterol levels that many of us have? They have consequences! Sexual performance and weight loss and sexuality For men, reduced blood flow to the penis reduces the ability to have and maintain an erection. For women, high cholesterol and diabetes show reduced blood flow to the clitoris and vulva. Lower blood flow to our genitalia contributes to the reduction of sexual desire and sexual performance, as well as the ability to reach orgasm. Keeping unnecessary weight down is a good health practice in general anyway, aside from the improvement in sexuality. So then, it’s never to late to cut, repeat, CUT that calorie intake. Watch the pounds drop as you push away from the table, just a little bit hungry. By-products of weight loss and sexuality It is that simple. Less fat equals more energy. More energy can mean a higher desire for sex as millions of dollars in research has proven. So, lose some weight. Have more energy. Feel sexier. Be healthier. Fat loss simply provides a higher quality of life, in or out of bed. For more information weight loss and sexuality and other Sexual Health topics, visit our blog at

BY JENNIFER LONG For years doctors have said raise your glass to a healthy heart. But a new study could have many women thinking twice before they have a drink. Fox News explains the sobering study’s finds. “Women who have as few as three alcoholic beverages a week may have a greater risk of getting breast cancer, that’s according to a new study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study found that women who drank between 3 and 6 drinks per week had a 15% greater risk of developing breast cancer." Researchers at Harvard conducted this 28-year study that included more than 100,000 women. It’s the first study to assess the effects small amounts of alcohol have over a long period of time. But doctors are saying this risk may not be the biggest concern. Dr. Rachel Simmons breaks down the stats on the Today show. “We need to understand when you talk about the risk of breast cancer, the lifetime risk for the average woman is about 10 percent. Increasing that by 15% takes you to maybe about a 12% lifetime risk of breast cancer... Now compare that to women that have a very strong family history who could be in the 85% lifetime risk of developing cancer. So I really think it isn’t as significant as it may sound in comparison to other risk factors.” And what about all those studies that said a glass of red wine can actually be good for you? Are women now forced to decide between their hearts and their breasts? Dr. Sanjay Gupta tells CNN that this new study might not change much. “It’s not saying you’re going to get cancer if you’re a drinker it just increases the risk and it is potentially good for your heart ... It can increase your good cholesterol, it can decrease the formation of clots and so even the American Cancer Society says we’re not ready to change our recommendations, we still think there are some potential benefits to drinking lightly, less than three drinks per week.” If you’re still wondering whether the drink is worth the risk, Dr. Richard Besser tells ABC that you might just have to ask the question - what’s the lesser of the two evils? “And you have to remember one in three women are going to die from heard disease. Only one in 36 are going to die from breast cancer. So it may be worth continuing to have that drink. If you don’t have that increased breast cancer risk.” Researchers who conducted the study say there’s no absolute answer for whether a woman should change her drinking habits. Dr. Wendy Chen of the Harvard Medical School tells the Washington Post... “If you are someone with a family history of breast cancer but are healthy, at a good weight, exercise regularly, have a healthy diet and don’t have a risk for heart disease, then you may make one decision... Another woman who has some cardiovascular risk factors and no history of breast cancer may make a different decision.” Transcript by Newsy.

BY ALLEX CONLEY ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO A new government plan in the UK suggests, it can spot potential future gang members in children as young as the age of three. Home Secretary Theresa May says in some cases -- intervention could begin before a child is even born. BBC has the back story on what’s leading to the discussion. In August this year London experienced the wrath of gang violence and criminality in the form of devastating rioting. “It may be support to parents, in terms of helping them in how they’re going to bring up a child, and for youngsters who are at school it’s identifying those that look as though they might be getting into gangs and then offering them pathways out if they do become a gang member.” But identifying potential gang members at age three? Really? The Telegraph cites the new Home Office Report which identifies high risk factors which could help. “...warning signs are ‘already clear’ by the time a child enters primary school, including neglect, aggression, absence from class and slow development. Children identified as ‘at risk’ by the age of three are more than twice as likely to have criminal convictions by the age of 21.” South London locals give a different perspective to the BBC on the issue. “No one ever planned to be in a gang. None of us here when we were young grew up thinking we want to be in a gang. That wasn’t a life like it’s just the friends around your area. Four of us walking together, police class us as gangs. So if you class us as gangs then you can start calling us a real gang in it.” But could there be something to that government study. Ex-gang banger Gavin tells The London Evening Standard his life of crime did indeed stem from his childhood. “From the age of three he watched his father rape his mother. His father would beat him. The stress and impotence he experienced had lasting repercussions … “I was one of the angry ones ‘cause of what I witnessed … I started beating up people. Then I started stabbing. Then I started having guns, and it just went crazy.” Predictable or not, police are cracking down on those involved in gang activity. According to The Telegraph, those found guilty of violent acts are receiving harsher sentences at a younger age. “Anyone including offenders aged 16 or 17 convicted of using a knife to threaten or endanger others faced a mandatory custodial sentence. And any adult who commits a second violent or sexual crime will now face a mandatory life sentence.” The community safety budgets which are used to tackle gang violence across the country were recently cut by more than 50%, A Police Federation Spokesperson told the Mirror. “This announcement acts as nothing more than yet another knee-jerk reaction from Government … [It] smacks of more ‘Big Society’ notions but as usual no practical solutions to growing problems in society.” According to the Sun - about 6 percent of the population aged between 10 and 19 are in a gang - or about 450,000 young people.

(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) St. Louis, MO – November 1, 2011 – Whether it’s providing a band-aid for a scraped knee or equipping their cars with safety seats, parents are the first line of defense for their children at home. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are asking Moms and Dads to take a vital step to keep their kids safe at home – Change Your Clock Change Your Battery®. Energizer is inviting parents across the country to join the Energizer Bunny® Brigade on Facebook ( for a chance to win free smoke alarms and batteries for their home or a grand prize of a home fire safety makeover. It’s a fun way to get people thinking about an important topic – home fire safety – and sharing positivity within their communities. “As parents we’ve got a lot on our minds-- jobs, busy schedules, filling hungry tummies so it’s easy to let home fire safety slip from our radars,” says Melissa Gerstein, host of NBC’s Moms And The City. “You never think a fire will strike your home, but it certainly could and it’s important to take as many proactive steps as we can to protect our families. From one parent to another, we need to remind each other to be sure our smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are in working order and that our kids know what to do in case of a fire. Using that extra hour when we change our clocks is the perfect time to do it.” Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, Nov. 6. As families change their clocks, it’s a good time also for families to review their home fire safety plans, starting with changing the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs are asking families across the country to join them in this year’s Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® campaign. The message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. Thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms, while 24 percent occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate.* Firefighters work tirelessly to help reduce the risk factors by educating their residents on the importance of having a working smoke alarm. In many communities, fire departments are able to distribute free batteries to citizens in need as a result of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program. Over the past 23 years, Energizer has donated more than four million batteries to local fire departments. The Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program just one of the ways Energizer brings to life the company commitment to making a positive impact in communities across the country. For more information, please visit “Each year, thousands of lives are forever changed due to the devastating effects of a home fire,” said Chief Al H. Gillespie, president and chairman of the board of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. “A working smoke alarm is an important defense for surviving a home fire. That’s why public information and education efforts being undertaken by fire departments with the support of Energizer is a vital component to keeping communities across the nation safe and sound. Families are encouraged to use the extra hour “gained” to remind their friends, family and neighbors of the life-saving habit of changing and testing smoke alarm batteries, and to help those who may need assistance. “For 23 years, Energizer, the IAFC and more than 6,200 fire departments have partnered to educate communities on the importance of home fire safety and having working smoke alarms,” said Michelle Atkinson, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. “By having parents and families actively pledge to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, we are hoping they will share the information with their network of friends and hopefully help other families do this simple and life-saving task- now that’s positivenergy™” About Energizer Energizer Holdings, Inc.

12:01 – PLANET EARTH:OUR LOVING HOME The True Cost of Choosing Animal Products: Depletion of Mother Earth. Episode: 1875, Air Date: 2 November 2011. Greetings, green-minded viewers, to this week’s episode of Planet Earth: Our Loving Home featuring an interview with Dr. Richard Oppenlander, a vegan, on how animal agriculture is destroying our planet. Dr. Oppenlander is an American environmentalist, wellness advocate and dentist who over the last four decades has studied the effects of food choices on the environment and human health. He is also the president and founder of an organic vegan food production and education business as well as the co-founder of an animal rescue and sanctuary. His research findings show that animal product production and consumption is severely harming our well-being and decimating our world by causing the substantial global loss of land, freshwater, clean air, food supply, biodiversity and energy resources at a frighteningly rapid pace. As the author of “Comfortably Unaware: Global depletion and food responsibility... What you choose to eat is killing our planet,” he has appeared on radio shows and written articles for newspapers and magazines to raise awareness of conscious eating. We’re losing our global resources at an unprecedented rate. We are producing 70-billion or more animals each year and it’s growing in exponential fashion. That number is a bit difficult to pin down, because on any given day, there will be, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, 1.7-trillion chickens in the world and one- to two-trillion fish in the world that are on their way sooner or later to slaughter. So, it’s a massive number and all of our resources are being deployed for this purpose. So in the other direction, we’re using all these resources and all of our energies to produce essentially food to create animals. It’s really not even food, it’s animals that we’re creating. And then we’re eating those and the end result is we’re eating something that’s unhealthy for us too. So it’s sort of a two-bladed sword that we’re dealing with right now. If we just did away with all that unnecessary loss of resources, it would obviously be better for our health. Meat production is inherently inefficient compared to growing plants for food. Vast tracts of tropical rainforests are destroyed annually to create space for livestock grazing and cultivating crops for livestock feed. According to a United Nations Environment Programme report, animal agriculture-related activities take up 38% of our planet’s land. Producing animal products also consumes huge volumes of water. For example a person uses up to 15,000 liters of water per day for a meat-based diet, which is 15-times as much water as a vegan would use. Water itself is the largest concern of any scientist that is studying where we’re going in our future. We are running out of land, of course, but we’re expected to deplete our water systems by 40% in just the next 19 years. So if we didn’t use the water for all of the aspects of animal agriculture, we certainly could be applying it more frugally to our own use right now. They’re concerned about water scarcity, when in reality, it’s more about water management. Instead of technologies, we need to start looking at choices. Instead of choosing to eat animal products, which uses massive amounts of water, we could be using water just to sustain ourselves. If you use your acre to grow grass-fed livestock, one acre isn’t normally enough. You would need 5, 10 even up to 20 acres in most land in the world. And when you do that, after two and a half years, which is what it would take to grow one grass- fed cow, you would essentially end up with about 480 pounds of that type of animal product that people are calling food. In the course of that 2 ½ years, you would create or produce about three to four tons of methane and carbon dioxide. And you would also use minimally 20- to 30,000 gallons of water. Minimally, that’s what they would drink. But in most cases, they would use about a million to two-million gallons of water because of all the alfalfa or other aspects of water use that they would need to use to even irrigate the land to produce grasses for them to eat. Whereas if you use that same acre of land to produce something like a kale-and-quinoa combination, you would have the equivalent on average after 2 ½ years of about 15,000 pounds of food produced. If you slithered off 1/8 of an acre, and you threw in some hydroponics, you could grow about 30,000 pounds of tomatoes during that 2 ½-year period of time. And you’d end up with food that’s infinitely healthier for you to eat and for our planet to grow versus animal products. The value of biodiversity is inestimable. Globally, a wide range of plant species keep nature in balance, feed the world’s population and improve the quality of life for humans and animals. For example, over 70,000 plant species are sources of medicine. Plants also protect water resources, soil and support nutrient storage. Due to the production and consumption of animal foods and other hugely detrimental human activities, we have entered what is being called the sixth great extinction event with the current rate of biodiversity loss of plants and animals 1,000 to 10,000 times higher than the natural background extinction rate. Most people don’t equate their choice of foods with the loss of a species, like the Javan Tiger, Tasmanian Tiger, or Ridley Sea Turtle. But in fact, the largest component of loss of biodiversity is due to loss of habitat, according to numerous scientific organizations like the World Conservation Union. The documentation that they’ve seen will show very clearly that most of the land is being used by livestock, not agriculture. So 30,000 animal species are going extinct per year. In just one day, there will be another 82 animal species gone forever. Most of those animal species are affected in one way or another by the food we’re eating, by either unsustainable fishing practices in our oceans, or the animal agriculture that we’re seeing on land. By eating fish, we’re contributing to loss of biodiversity, we’re contributing to global warming, because it’s affecting the amount of oxygen that’s in our oceans right now. We’re also affecting our own health because fish in fact have cholesterol. They have many other issues that affect us. Obviously, if we’re moving entirely over to a plant-based diet, we’re going to be true stewards of our planet by not creating such loss of habitat and destructions in our oceans. So species will be preserved. Dr. Oppenlander estimates that meat consumption leads to a minimum of US$150 billion in healthcare costs in the US annually. He now explains how he arrived at his conclusion. What I usually do is I try to frame it slightly differently. I try to point out that we have a US$2.1- to 2.3- trillion healthcare cost in America. Last year (2010) it was US$2.1- to 2.3-trillion. Now the minimal amount that you can quantify as applied to eating livestock is somewhere around US$150 billion. That’s minimal. That’s because if you add up the US$88- billion from food-borne illnesses from livestock or the US$180 billion from hypertension, the US$300 billion a year from heart disease or cardiovascular concerns and then there’s diabetes for another US$100-120 billion. And eating livestock or animals is minimally between 20-25-30% risk factor of all those. So it is at least US$150-billion dollars. I feel that this should be taken into account with our national healthcare plan and insurance. I feel like the title of my next book should be “Why Should We Be Paying for What Everybody else Decides to Eat?” Livestock raising is the single largest human induced source of methane emissions, a highly potent, heat-retaining greenhouse gas, which has 72-times the warming potential of carbon dioxide over a 20-year period. Scientists know that we are in an escalated global warming period with more greenhouse gases in our atmosphere than at any other time. So we have to do something to solve it. We can’t continue on with what we’re doing. The United Nations 2006 report called Livestock’s Long Shadow stated it was 20% of all of our greenhouse-gas emissions, which is more than all of our transportation sector, all our airplanes, cars, trucks and trains that we drive and fly every day. Some researchers that were also looking at it on the side very carefully since then have demonstrated that livestock is responsible for 51% of all greenhouse-gas emissions found in our atmosphere. It’s an issue of raising animals to eat. And that’s not going to change unless we get off of eating animals entirely. Vegan organic farming improves the quality of our planet’s soil, water and air and thus enhances biodiversity. The practice can also tackle climate change by absorbing and storing carbon dioxide. The Rodale Institute’s farming trial in the US verifies that organic agriculture, if practiced on our planet’s 3.5 billion tillable acres, could sequester nearly 40% of current CO2 emissions. There are many food movements, as you know. There’s slow food, real food, organic food, and being a localvore. There are so many food movements right now. The issue is that they all are like a barge going down the river, and they’re carrying behind it this long line that is attached to animals, all of them are. So they’re not getting anywhere. In fact, they’re dragging more resources with it. So we need to clip the line, essentially, get the animals out of the equation. So real food, slow food, organic food and buying local food are all extremely healthy without the animals. So you can say that whether it’s organic or not organic, it doesn’t matter if it applies to animals, because it’s not going to be healthy for our environment, our planet or ourselves. Now, if you’re talking about organic or non-organic or inorganic, vegetable sources and plant sources, sure. Our respectful salute, Dr. Richard Oppenlander for your dedicated efforts to study the tremendously harmful impacts of the livestock industry, and convey the message about the virtues of the organic plant-based diet. May your benevolent work touch many more lives in the future.

May we always experience abundant love and bliss from Heaven.

8:40 Hepatitis B Virus- the role of HBV infection for giving causes of liver cancers was very much established, various lines of support is pointing with this tough association. Incidence of the cancer relays o the rate of recurrence of the chronic hepatitis B viral infection. Furthermore, patients positive to hepatitis B virus are at higher risk for acquiring liver cancers. Hepatitis C Virus – patients with this condition have higher risk factor in developing the disease. It includes with the presence of liver cirrhosis, male genders, old age, and infections of hepatitis B virus. Alcohol – liver cirrhosis that is caused by frequent alcohol consumption was the most usual connection of the liver cancers that has developed worldwide. Aflatoxin B1 – the most powerful known chemical for the liver cancer formation. It is produced by the mold Aspergillus Flavus that are found from the foods that had been stored to the hot and moist environments. The molds are usually, found in peanuts, soybeans, wheat, corn and rice. Cirrhosis – person that has liver cirrhosis are at the higher risk in developing the cancer of the liver.

There are a number of reasons why you should lift weights but the one we’re going to focus on right now is increasing the muscle strength without injuring the joint. Remember to get a physicians approval before beginning any exercise program especially if you are over 40 or have any risk factors – you smoke, history of heart disease in immediate family, any chronic disease, etc. Once you are cleared by your doctor to exercise you need to start with these exercises that are called compound movements. That is exercises that involve at least two joints. They include:

8:43 The ultimate goal of prostate cancer prevention strategies is to prevent men from developing the disease. Unfortunately, despite significant progress in research over the past 18 years, this goal has not yet been achieved. Both genetic and environmental risk factors for prostate cancer have been identified, but the evidence is not yet strong enough to be helpful to men currently at risk for developing prostate cancer. By contrast, some success has been seen with strategies that can delay the development and progression of prostate cancer. Studies with finasteride and dutasteride, which are typically used for men with the noncancerous condition BPH, have shown that they can reduce by about 25% the chances that a man will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial was one of the largest prostate cancer trials ever, and involved over 18,000 men over a decade. This study showed that finasteride was able to reduce the risk of being diagnosed by 25%, but initially found a slightly higher rate of aggressive prostate cancers in men who took finasteride. Later looks at this data have suggested that this may be an artifact or due to a greater ability to find more aggressive cancers due to a smaller gland size (ie a biopsy needle can more easily hit a cancer in a smaller gland than a larger gland). Given that this agent is well tolerated, current recommendations call for a discussion about the risks and benefits of these agents in the prevention of prostate cancer, and of the potential risks and benefits of using these agents for other conditions, such as BPH.

9:43 Causes of pancreatic cancer: There are no exact answers for this question. And more over this disease is not contagious to spread to others. Many of the researchers identified the risk factors for this disease. Risk factors for Prostate cancer: Researchers identified some risk factors which increases the chance of occurrence of pancreatic cancer, they are: • Smoking: This is the major activity which causes diseases like lung cancer, pancreatic cancer and many other diseases. So, avoid smoking to protect yourself from occurrence of this disease. • Alcohol drinking: This is the second leading activity which increases the risk factor of causing pancreatic cancer. • Weak immune system: Generally weak immune system in the body opens the door to many diseases. So, try to improve the immune system by taking proper diet and exercise.

6:58 I am including here an abstract from the journal "Medical Hypothesis" entitled "Alternative Treatment of Gallbladder Disease" because it enumerates several causes of gallbladder disease and gallstones. Note that it mentions the primary ingredient in our recommended gallstone kit's Gallbladder Detox, coin grass, or lysimanchia which is usually used as a tincture. "Major risk factors for gallbladder disease include a sedentary lifestyle and a diet rich in refined sugars. In genetically prone individuals, these two factors lead to an abnormal bile composition, altered gut microflora, and hyperinsulinemia, with resulting gallstone formation. As a large percentage of gallbladder patients have continued digestive complaints following cholecystectomy, the author examines complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatments to counteract gallstone formation. Herbal medicine such as turmeric, oregon grape, bupleurum, and coin grass may reduce gallbladder inflammation and relieve liver congestion. Elimination of offending foods, not necessarily 'fatty' foods, is often successful and recommended by many holistic physicians. Regular aerobic exercise has a beneficial effect on hyperinsulinemia, which is often associated with gallbladder disease. Dietary changes that lower plasma insulin levels, such as a change in dietary fats and substitution of unrefined carbohydrates for refined carbohydrates, may also be helpful."
