Chitosan For Weight Loss

Chitosan is a non-digestible fiber that is derived from the shells of lobsters, crabs, and other crustaceans. Many reports mention that chitosan will greatly promote weight loss as it is bonded into the fat molecules that are present in the digestive tract, thus preventing the body from absorbing the fat. It’s common for people who are trying to lose weight to take weight loss supplements. These supplements work in different ways. Some block your appetite, others are supposed to speed up your metabolism. In the case of chitosan, fat is blocked from being absorbed. In terms of its effectiveness[...]

New Cancer Killing Drug Developed

An American University of Chicago study led by Professor Ysuke Nakamura claims to have developed a drug that kills cancer cells as they try to divide. This compound –  OTS964 – produced what are being hailed as dramatic results. Laboratory testing with the drug got rid of aggressive human lung cancers  that had been transplanted into mice produced few side effects and this early research could well be pointing out the path to potentially curative treatments for aggressive cancers. The conclusions of this ground-breaking research point to the development of revolutionary pills or injections that effectively combat a wide[...]

My Electronic Dog Training Collar Experience

The brightest dog I ever owned was also the least obedient. He absolutely had a mind of his own. I tried several kinds of collars and harnesses, and eventually looked into electronic dog training devices. He could slip out of any collar or harness I ever used (including all of the kind designed to prevent just that sort of thing). He pulled against all the fancy anti-pull collars. He was perfectly obedient in staying by me until he saw something more interesting. I hated to keep him leashed all the time, but he just would not mind me if[...]

Granted, there are several pros and cons in introducing baby to a pacifier. Many parents are staunch advocates of giving baby a pacifier, while others feel it just as strongly and take a firm position against it. Realistically though, perhaps the decision or whether or not to use a pacifier should be left . . . to baby! Some babies have a stronger sucking instinct than others and may need that extra[...]

The Demonic Devils Bible?

Back in the late13th century, in Bohemia, there appeared a literary work of amazing quality, rumour suggesting that this iconic production first showed up at the Podlažice monastery, near Chrudim, from where it was pawned to Cistercian monks, and moved on Sedlec.  This creation has, throughout a long history, been known variously as the Liber Permonastery in grandis, the Codex Gigas,  or more chillingly the Devil’s Bible. 1295 is the date when first written reports appeared about a volume supposedly written in 1229, possibly by one of the occupants of the small Benedictine monastery where it was discovered.
