Diet & Attention Hyperactivity Disorder

We met a Mom yesterday who related to us that her son who was severely ill-tempered and hyperactive, bouncing off the walls , crawling out of his skin, doctors wanted her to put him on Drugs. After just two weeks of following the Feingold recommendations, She had 180 degree change in his behavior back to conscienscious, mellow, attentive boy without drugging him. Salute.

From Wikipedia
The team of researchers concluded that “the finding lends strong support for the case that food additives exacerbate hyperactive behaviors (inattention, impulsivity and overactivity) at least into middle childhood.”[cite this quote] That study examined the effect of artificial colors and a sodium benzoate preservative, and found both to be problematic for some children. Further studies are needed to find out whether there are other additives that could have a similar effect, 

Sugar regulation

A number of studies have found that sucrose (sugar) has no effect on behavior and in particular it does not exacerbate the symptoms of children diagnosed with ADHD.[5][6][7] One study demonstrated the impact of expectancy effects in parents' perceptions of their children's hyperactivity after consuming sugar. In this study, parents who were told their child had ingested a high concentration of sugar in drink form (even though the drink was actually flavored with aspartame), reported their child as being more active, inattentive and resistant to parental demands. This was in comparison to the group who were told (accurately) that their child had ingested no sugar.[8]

[edit]Omega-3 fatty acids

Some research suggests that children with ADHD may have low blood levels of essential omega-3 fatty acids.[9] However, it is unknown if decreased blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids can cause or exacerbate ADHD or whether lower blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids associated with ADHD are caused by an underlying mechanism.[9][10] Fish oils appear to reduce ADHD-related symptoms in some children. A double blind study has showed "medium to strong treatment effects of omega 3 fatty acids on symptoms of ADHD" after administering amounts around 1 gram for three to six months.[11]

The Venus Project

This means our problems are a cause of scarcity, Scarcity of thinking, of competition. Competition breeds scarcity. When we cooperate and recreate our life support structures to work systematically to our current level of technological achievement the illusion of scarcity will release from our consciousness and immense awakening will be upon us.

"Legal" Trouble

Legal trouble

In 2003, Chong was targeted by two American investigations code-named Operation Pipe Dream and Operation Headhunter, which sought out businesses selling drug paraphernalia, mostly water pipes. He was charged for his part in financing and promoting Chong Glass/Nice Dreams, a company started by his son Paris. Chong agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute drug paraphernalia in exchange for non-prosecution of his wife, Shelby, and his son. While 54 of the 55 individuals charged as a result of the operations were sentenced to fines and home detentions, Chong was sentenced onSeptember 112003, to 9 months in a federal prison, forfeiture of $103,000, and a year of probation.
While government officials denied that Chong was treated any differently from the other defendants, many felt that he was made an example of by the government. Soon afterwards, marijuana advocates started the Free Tommy Chong! movement that called for his release. Chong served his sentence from October 82003 to July 72004, and in December 2004 was to appear off-Broadway in a show entitled The Marijuana-Logues, a parody of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. His legal concerns, including that audiences were actually smoking marijuana in some of the shows early in its tour ultimately caused him to quit the show.
In 2006, Chong wrote a book about his experiences in jail and his interest in meditation, called The I Chong: Meditations From The Joint (ISBN 1-4169-1554-0)

The Emergence of the Rational Mind

On the current events; Egypt
It is fascinating the peaceful resolve to which revolution is unfolding. Even in a child intent on escaping reality into their own irrational emotion land/temper tantrums (not grief) versus confronting the potential horror of such separateness (always exacerbated of conflict), are awakening to stronger a sense of global unity and shared experience. So refreshing is this realization of a solidarity to justice. When this revolution is over there will be not one left against this... transition... revolution.. awakening.
