These 5 Things Will Influence Your Health More Than Anything Else In Your Life

These 5 Things Will Influence Your Health More Than Anything Else In Your Life

Most educational and government institutions around the world have a very poor track record when it comes to influencing the practical habits that keep their populations healthy. They say we are destined for disease depending on our genetics and biology without ever addressing some of the most significant determinants that shape our health.

1) What Your Skin Absorbs

Our skin’s production of vitamin D dramatically influences our health. It is influenced by age (people ages 65 and over generate only one-fourth as much as people in their 20s do), skin color (African Americans have, on average, about half as much vitamin D in their blood as white Americans), and sunscreen use (slather on sunscreen in the summer and you’re guaranteed to eliminate prime opportunities to soak in Vitamin D). Spraying toxic bug repellents, creams and other cosmetics influence your immunity. Children have a large body surface area and tender skin, making them more prone to cross-skin absorption. People over 65 tend to have thinner skin and have had years of exposure to sun, which also makes their skin absorb more of these chemicals. The last thing you should be doing after 60 is applying cosmetics, moisturizers (unless they are natural), makeup, and using conventional shampoos and conditioners. Researchers have discovered specific molecular signaling events by which vitamin D via skin production prevents inflammation. In experiments, many researchers have shown that low levels of Vitamin D, comparable to levels found in millions of people, failed to inhibit the inflammatory cascade–a series of rapid biochemical events which propagates and matures the inflammatory response within the immune system.

‘Nothing to fear, nothing to hide’ earns Gloucester MP comparisons with Goebbels

‘Nothing to fear, nothing to hide’ earns Gloucester MP comparisons with Goebbels

When Richard Graham, Conservative MP for Gloucester stood up to speak in the debate about the draft Investigatory Powers Bill he probably didn’t expect to be compared to Josef Goebbels.

Mr Graham ended his speech approving of the bill with the phrase ‘If you have nothing to hide; you have nothing to fear.’

It’s a fairly standard sentiment often expressed in the debate about where to draw the line between privacy and security.

Theresa May: Internet data will be recorded under new spy laws

Theresa May: Internet data will be recorded under new spy laws

What is Theresa May proposing?

  • Allow ministers to retain the power to sign off warrants for intrusive surveillance
  • Force internet and communications companies to retain customer usage data for up to a year
  • Protect the ability of GCHQ and MI5 to bulk collect communications data and to hack in to a suspect’s electronic devices

Is it controversial?

Potentially. Privacy campaigners see the new requirement for everyone’s internet records to be stored as a major extension of surveillance powers

Why is the government doing this?

The government sees the bill as “maintaining intelligence agencies’ current capabilities”. David Cameron described it as “one of the most important pieces of legislation” in this parliament and said it goes “to the heart of the Government’s duty to keep the British public safe.”

Haven’t we been here before?

Theresa May put forward a similar bill during coalition in 2013 – nicknamed the Snoopers Charter – however it was blocked by the Liberal Democrats over concerns about how strict its measures were.
