With new books and research being released each day stating which diet is the, “optimal” diet for human species, it can be quite confusing what to fill your plate up with nowadays. Is going ketogenetic the right move? What about paleo? Maybe I should go vegetarian or vegan after watching that latest documentary? I could probably write a whole paper on the different diet options that have been touted as, the best. The hard truth is that many of these so called, “health gurus” are simply trying to end up on the best seller’s section of the book store. With the thousands of nutrition and recipe books written within the last 20 years, you would think we would have the health crisis under control regarding obesity, weight loss, hormone health, mood disorders, however, this is not the case.

In Sweden and the Scandinavian countries osteoporosis is a very common issue. In fact, Sweden has the highest numbers of bone fractures caused by osteoporosis in the world (Bjärenäs, 2018). In Sweden the milk lobby has for many years promoted the slogan “milk gives stronger bones”. However, this is an oversimplified version of the truth and the reasons for the high numbers of osteoporosis are many. Calcium has an important role in bone health, but Calcium alone doesn’t build strong bones. The lack of sunlight makes vitamin D deficiency a common problem in Sweden. Vitamin D which really is not a vitamin, but a steroidal hormone plays a crucial role in in intestinal calcium absorption. If there is a deficiency of vitamin D in the bloodstream the uptake of calcium is reduced, and the body starts taking calcium from the skeletal tissue.

Smartphones are the new best friend
Smartphones has become an integral part of life and sometimes they are even closer then our family in these days . We wear them closely to our body we have them close when we sleep, kids tell there parents that they are going to sleep but stays up half the night feeling the urge to stay updated on everything that happens online. When i take the train to work everybody’s necks are like cranes hovering over there cell phones. The link between cellphone use and cancer remains inconclusive, one thing that is for real is the impact on sleep and the stress factor more and more people have a hard time to let go of there cell phone.Even if the relationship with cancer is not 100% proven there is another effect that is starting to get more traction in the scientific community.That theory is that the cellphone radiation seems to affect the cellular voltage gated calcium channels (VGCCs).This means that cellphone use will make these calcium channels open and let calcium in to the cell.This will cause excess calcium signaling but also an excess of nitric oxide will be let in to the cell. The excess of nitric oxide could form in to peroxynitrite wich in turn could breakdown and form reactive oxygen species (ROS) which can induce cellular damage.The most amount of VGCCs are located in the brain and many studies have now shown links between cellphone use and neurological disorders like:

I’m 39 years of age and every second year i get tonsillitis, that’s been the case for as long as I can remember. This time was different though. It came back with a vengeance and was worse than ever.
If you’ve ever had tonsillitis, you surely know of the traditional western way of handling it. 1: Determining if the illness is; a. bacteria or b. virus.
In short, if a; eat antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and painkillers. If b; eat painkillers and anti-inflammatory. If treated tonsillitis comes back, or if you get peritonsillar abscess, the option is to remove the tonsils all together.
I would like to think that there are more alternatives that that.
