Researchers reporting in the New England Journal of Medicine say that some people are sensitive to low barometric pressures while flying in commercial aircraft. Very low barometric pressures are uncommon in modern aircraft but sea-level air pressures are not the norm either. Some passengers flying on long commercial flights experience feeling of illness similar to mountain climbers who experience altitude sickness.
Feelings of weakness, along with headaches, nausea, mental confusion, fuzzy thinking, leg cramps, swollen hands and feet, dry scratchy throat, and disturbances in sleep seem to be the cluster of symptoms experienced by those passengers flying about 6,500 feet. Even alarming symptoms like blood clots are being experienced more and more among long flight flyers.
Aside from the low barometric pressure, some of the symptoms can also be attributed to prolonged sitting, foul cabin air, fatigue, dehydration and even jet lag.… Read the rest
As a child, I used to be upset sitting in my classroom at school in a half empty room when my classmates were laying at home in front of the TV, not having to do the school thing. Why did I have to be so darn healthy while all my friends were sick? It didn’t seem fair that when flu season hit, I didn’t get it. Didn’t I deserve to watch reruns on TV too?
When flu season hit, the school almost looked like a ghost town with easily one third of the students off with the latest bug.

There are five stages that lead to a disease state.
The first stage starts when the foods we eat and the drinks we consume create an acidic state in our body. As a result, a lot of nutrients, especially minerals are being used up to try to buffer the acidic body state. Antioxidants are being used at an alarming rate to try to relieve the free radical damage. The body is using everything it has to try to bring the body back to balance.… Read the rest
Well, the H1N1 pandemic scare is now passed but there are some important lessons we need to think about. First of all, the pandemic never materialized. There is now an investigation going on in Europe to find out if the World Health Organization (WHO) was influenced by the 5 drug companies who make 7 billion dollars profit, to declare an international pandemic rating.
In the US, statistics show 60 million people or 20 percent of the population, voluntarily got the H1N1 vaccine. In the UK, the government is trying to get rid of a billion pounds worth of vaccine it cannot use. The Daily Mail in Britain reports the even more shocking fact the hysterical overreaction that was built up in the media was very predictable.… Read the rest
