Dear Valued Subscriber,  


Did you know that a study presented at the Scandinavian Physiological Society showed that Finnish students improved their cognitive speed by 25 to 30 percent and were in happier moods after receiving bright light therapy in their ear canals? The researchers postulate that training light into ear canals affect photosensitive brain tissue, quickening thought processes and reaction times.


Did you know that a recent study in Journal of Clinical Endocrinologyfound that a high level of vitamin D supplementation increases men's testosterone levels? 


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky

Why Be Wary of Nanotechnology?
Wild West of Science Can Harm. 
New research reveals that pure gold nanoparticles found in everyday items such as personal care products, as well as drug delivery, MRI contrast agents and solar cells can inhibit adipose (fat) storage and lead to accelerated aging and wrinkling, slowed wound healing, and the onset of diabetes. The research appeared in this month's Journal of Nanotoxicology.

The researchers tested the impact of nanoparticles in vitro on multiple types of cells, including adipose (fat) tissue, to determine whether their basic functions were disrupted when exposed to very low doses of nanoparticles. 

They discovered that the human adipose-derived stromal cells -- a type of adult stem cells -- were penetrated by the gold nanoparticles almost instantly and that the particles accumulated in the cells with no obvious pathway for elimination. The presence of the particles disrupted multiple cell functions, such as movement; replication (cell division); and collagen contraction; processes that are essential in wound healing.

According to the researchers, the most disturbing finding was that the particles interfered with genetic regulation, RNA expression and inhibited the ability to differentiate into mature adipocytes or fat cells. "Reductions caused by gold nanoparticles can result in systemic changes to the body," said the lead researchher. "Since they have been considered inert and essentially harmless, it was assumed that pure gold nanoparticles would also be safe. Evidence to the contrary is beginning to emerge."  


Steve: This is what we were afraid of. Allowing these substances into the marketplace prior to prudent safety studies is criminal. Progress comes with social responsibility and ensuring that new technologies are environmentally sustainable is paramount. The good news: when the nanoparticles were removed, normal functions were eventually restored.


Meal Replacement, Paleo Style

EPICBarFor those of you who know us well, we have never been big fans of energy and snack bars. Admittedly, they are sometimes a necessary evil. 


We are happy to say that we have found a product that not only has real ingredients, but is balanced with lean protein, healthy fat, and low carb.


EPIC Bar comes in bison, beef, and turkey flavors. We like the bison and turkey the best. The bison is grass-fed, the beef is organic, and the turkey is humanely raised without antibiotics or hormones.
