health thru biodiversity

so, i'm writing this essay on the importance of biodiversity to the healthy function of ecosystems. the issue has its critics i know, but that's my assignment. so anyway, i'm reading on the david suzuki site:

"The world food supply today is derived from 30 crops which supply about 90 per cent of calories to the human diet. And just 14 animal species make up 90 per cent of the livestock we raise" and he ...

wikipedia

hey guys i have an idea for a fun project. i haven't checked if it's been proposed on here before, but let's edit the hell out of the multiple sclerosis page at wikipedia. we can each do a section on our favourite topics (all appropriately referenced of course!) or elaborate on what's there if it's already mentioned.

i want to start compiling a list for the serum values of nutrients in ms patients in remission ...

Gaba

I am a new member of this forum. As such, I am very interested in stimulating conversation about the many natural approaches to treating MS. Since I am on quite a few supplements and continue to read about others, I would like to start with my experience with Gaba.

After refusing to take any "drugs" for pain and spasms, my partner and I decided that lack of sleep was causing even more problems. Thus I ...

No dating service this week. But always happy to help out if needed.

PS Does anyone know where Arron is? He's paid good money to moderate this site but has gone AWOL.

compound based on resveratrol in trials

Interesting stuff about a compound being tested for type 1 diabetes based on resveratrol, found most notably in red wine. If you think insulin might be related to diseases other than diabetes (anyone? anyone?), then this looks promising.



Research published in Nature by Sirtris scientists is first demonstration in mammals that resveratrol, a sirtuin activator, can treat diseases of aging, such as diabetes. Sirtris Pharmaceuticals doses first diabetes patient in human clinical study.

Nov. 1, ...

Does MS effect personality cause my sister can be happy and social one minute and then bite people's head's off 5 seconds later. It's got to the point where my room-mate has moved out cause ...

Damaged optic nerves

My wife Marg (MS for 35 years) has in the past 6 months had difficulty trying to read. The words become blurred, then better then blurred. Trying to read a newspaper becomes very tiresome for her. A trip to the optometrist 6 months ago and then a referral to the neuro ophthalmologist has resulted in a preliminary diagnosis of damaged optic nerves.

Marg has never had a problem with her eyes and never suffered from ...

Living with an MSer

Does MS impact on someone's personality? Im going crazy trying to guess how Im meant to behave with my sister (who has MS). One moment she's happy and social and then, no kidding, 5 seconds later she's possessed by the devil :evil: and we're all tiptoeing around the house. Someone please help! I think Im going mad! I really want to be supportive but ...
