Soda & Obesity - dang!

Just reading about the link between soda and obesity, which makes sense, but it makes me sad, as soda is one of my few nutritional vices.

But the soda I drink is generally Hansen's, or Jones, both without high fructose corn syrup. All the same, I know that all that liquid sugar isn't good for me. It's not fair... :)

I'm going to have one now to commensurate...

Initial thoughts on WiFi dangers

I thought that this was an interesting article on the dangers of WiFi. I'm around wireless radiation constantly through the day, so this is the start of a topic that I've been researching. Just because the FDA gives it's good blessing on the safety of WiFi and radio frequency radiation, doesn't mean I'm convinced it's completely safe. But then again, these days WiFi is nearly inescapable, and even if you had no wireless broadband/cell radiation in your house, your neighbors are sure to. And look outside the window and there's bound to be a cell tower not far from view.
Even living in remote places in the country you can't escape some sort of satellite radiation. Maybe it's harmless, but my thinking is, the technology is so new, how can they know for sure at this point?

Medical doctors aren't taking the H1N1 vaccine

The video I posted talks about how some individuals in the medical community are avoiding H1N1 and urging their friends and families to do so as well. This is interesting, and a little alarming, in light of what I just heard on the radio the other day with the head of the CDC telling people to get the vaccine. It also sounds as if the testing has been minimal, and per the video children in Oklahoma were used as "guinea pigs" for testing.

What frightens me most is things such as the bill being drafted in Massachusetts which, in light of the potential pandemic, allows health officials to invade homes and detain without warrant, as well as fine individuals who refuse the shot. Granted, that's one state, but I live in Texas, where the governor wants Gardasil vaccine required for ALL girls in the state. It's one thing for the government to recommend a vaccine schedule, and another thing completely to mandate it by law.

So I'll keep my eye on the news regarding swine flu, and pray that this isn't the "epidemic" that the media plays it up to be.

Dark History of Vaccines

Here's a link to an interesting article about some of the darker history of vaccines. Frightening, and it is bothersome that this type of material rarely makes the mainstream media (or even Readers Digest, but no real surprise there.)
