SOPHISTRY QUOTES [PAGE - 2] | A-Z Quotes


#NothingNewUnderTheSun The American elite is almost beyond redemption. . . . "MoralRelativism" has set in so deeply that the gilded classes have become incapable of discerning right from wrong. Everything can be explained away, especially by journalists. Life is one great moral mush--sophistry washed down with Chardonnay. The ordinary citizens, thank goodness, still adhere to absolutes.... It is they who have saved the republic from creeping degradation while their 'betters' were derelict. Charles Dickens

The Truth About the Health Benefits of Terpenes | Best Health


#Terpenes are aromatic #HydroCarbons .. oils that provide the #fragrant essence in plants, flowers and trees. The fragrant molecules are basically oils that release a therapeutic scent, says Josh Kaplan, a neuroscientist at The University of Washington. A study published in the Journal of Toxicological Research showed that the Japanese practice of forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, in a terpene-rich environment has potential anti-inflammatory, anti-tumorigenic, and neuroprotective affects on human health. Dr. Kaplan says there is a dual route by which terpenes can have a therapeutic benefit. “For years it was thought that people benefited from inhaling terpenes because our olfactory system, or sense of smell, is tied to emotional centres in the brain, thus having a positive effect on our mood,” says Kaplan. “However, recently it’s been identified that the terpenes also act directly on brain cells to modulate their activity.” The terpene beta-caryophyllene found in basil, oregano, black pepper, and cannabis has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pain-relieving benefits. A study by the Chongqing Medical University in China showed promising results in using this terpene to treat Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease progression is dependent on mitigating brain inflammation, and beta-caryophyllene was either injected or administered orally in mice to dampen inflammation by activating cannabinoid, or CB2, receptors in the brain. The neurotherapeutic potential extends to other terpenes as well. “In some lab models, high doses of linalool showed anti-seizure and anti-epileptic effects,” says Kaplan.

What Is A Mexican Mole? | culinarylore.com


Although many believe the word #mole comes from the Spanish word moler, meaning “to grind” it actually comes from a #Nahuatl ( #Aztec ) word, #molli meaning, “ #sauce ” or “mixture.” Most people have probably never experienced an honest to goodness mole. #Mexican #restaurants in the U.S., which churn out generic cookie-cutter dishes that are one step removed from fast food, certainly rarely make real Mexican moles. The flavors are sweet, nutty, roasted, and slightly bitter. The town of #Puebla is usually given as the “birthplace” of the first mole but #Oaxaca , from which many moles originate, claims to be the home of the seven moles, being the place from which all other moles came

Nutraceutical - Wikipedia


A #nutraceutical or #bioceutical is a pharmaceutical alternative which claims physiological benefits. In the US, "nutraceuticals" are largely unregulated, as they exist in the same category as dietary supplements and food additives by the FDA, under the authority of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources that are purported to provide extra health benefits, in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foods. Depending on the jurisdiction, products may claim to prevent chronic diseases, improve health, delay the aging process, increase life expectancy, or support the structure or function of the body The word "nutraceutical" is a portmanteau of the words "nutrition" and "pharmaceutical", coined in 1989 by Stephen L. #DeFelice , founder and chairman of the Foundation of Innovation Medicine. Indians, Egyptians, Chinese, and Sumerians are just a few civilizations that have used food as medicine. “Let food be thy medicine.” is a common misquotation attributed to #Hippocrates , who is considered by some to be the father of Western medicine. The modern nutraceutical market began to develop in Japan during the 1980s. In contrast to the natural herbs and spices used as folk medicine for centuries throughout Asia, the nutraceutical industry has grown alongside the expansion and exploration of modern technology

Taste - Wikipedia


The sensation of taste includes five established basic tastes: sweetness, sourness, saltiness, bitterness, and savoriness (also known as savory or umami) Scientific experiments have demonstrated that these five tastes exist and are distinct from one another. Taste buds are able to distinguish between different tastes through detecting interaction with different molecules or ions. Sweet, savoriness, and bitter tastes are triggered by the binding of molecules to G protein-coupled receptors on the cell membranes of taste buds. Saltiness and sourness are perceived when alkali metal or hydrogen ions enter taste buds, respectively. The basic tastes contribute only partially to the sensation and flavor of food in the mouth—other factors include smell, detected by the olfactory epithelium of the nose; texture, detected through a variety of mechanoreceptors, muscle nerves, etc.;temperature, detected by thermoreceptors; and "coolness" (such as of menthol) and "hotness" (pungency), through chemesthesis.

What Are Tea Tannins? Benefits and Downsides


#Tea - #Tannins are a type of chemical compound that belongs to a larger group of compounds called #polyphenols . Their molecules are typically much larger than those found in other types of polyphenols, and they possess a unique ability to easily combine with other molecules, such as proteins and minerals However, early research suggests that certain tea #tannins possess characteristics similar to those of other #polyphenols , helping prevent disease by providing #antioxidant and #antimicrobial benefits One of the main tannins found in green tea is known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG belongs to a group of compounds known as catechins. It’s thought to be one of the reasons behind the many health benefits associated with green tea. Animal and test-tube studies suggest that EGCG may play a role in reducing inflammation and protecting against cellular damage and certain chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and #cancer Tea also offers a plentiful supply of two groups of tannins called theaflavins and thearubigins. Tea also contains high levels of a tannin called ellagitannin . Early-stage research suggests ellagitannin may promote the growth and activity of beneficial gut bacteria, but more studies in this area are needed. Ellagitannin is also in the spotlight for its potential effect on cancer treatment and prevention. Like other types of dietary polyphenols, ellagitannin exhibits strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Test-tube studies have revealed that it may also play a role in reducing the growth and spread of cancerous cells.

The relevance of theobromine for the beneficial effects of cocoa consumption


Apart from the high content of antioxidants, solid evidence points to methylxanthines as key players in the beneficial effects. #Caffeine has been classically considered with higher potential than other #methylxanthines . Recent studies have highlighted the potential of theobromine, which may act as antitumoral, anti-inflammatory or cardiovascular protector molecule without the undesirable side effects described for caffeine. The main mechanisms of action of #theobromine are inhibition of phosphodiesterases and blockade of adenosine receptors but, interestingly, it exhibits other important adenosine receptor-independent effects as the reduction of cellular oxidative stress or regulation of gene expression. In this sense, theobromine could be considered a safe and #NaturalAlternative in the treatment of some human #diseases and may serve as lead compound for the development of novel #drugs

Ursolic Acid - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics


#UrsolicAcid Ursolic acid is a lipophilic pentacyclic triterpenoid, especially abundant in apple peel, with anti-inflammatory and antihyperlipidemic properties [46]. Recently, ursolic acid has been identified as a possible remedy for muscle atrophy in a screen for small-molecule inhibitors of skeletal muscle wasting in mice [47]. Interestingly, supplementation with ursolic acid to mice on a high-fat diet increased muscle mass and strength, improved glucose tolerance, promoted brown adipose tissue deposition, and decreased white adipose tissue mass and the severity of hepatic steatosis [48]. These findings suggest that ursolic acid might represent an effective nutritional aid to counteract age-related changes in body composition and metabolic derangements. However, the effect of supplementation with ursolic acid in older adults with sarcopenia has yet to be investigated.

Prebiotics: Tending Our Inner Garden - YouTube


our immune system must constantly maintain a balance between tolerance to good bacteria while attacking bad bacteria. If we mess up this fine balance and start attacking harmless bacteria, it could lead to inflammatory bowel disease, where we're in constant red alert attack mode. The mechanism by which the immune system maintains this critical balance is the presence of #butyrate . Butyrate suppresses the inflammatory reaction, tells our immune system to stand down. So butyrate may behave as a microbial signal to inform our immune system that the relative levels of good bacteria are within the desired range. Butyrate calms the immune system down, saying, in effect, all's well; you got the good guys on board, ultimately rendering the intestinal immune system hyporesponsive, meaning accommodating to the beneficial bacteria. But in the absence of the calming effect of butyrate, our immune system is back in full force, attacking the bacteria within our gut because they're obviously not the right ones since butyrate levels are so low causing #inflamation .
&neo 2020-01-21  
Prebiotics: Tending Our Inner Garden - YouTube


The critical fuel that keeps the epithelial gut layer alive is a short chain fatty acid - #butyrate . "Prebiotics: Tending Our Inner Garden" The total surface area of our gut is maybe 3,000 square feet, counting all the little folds, larger than a tennis court, yet only a single layer of cells separates our inner core from the outer chaos. The primary fuel that keeps this critical cell layer alive is a short-chain fatty acid called butyrate, which our good bacteria make from the fiber we eat. We feed the good bacteria in our gut, and they feed us right back. They take the prebiotics we eat, like fiber, and in return provide the vital fuel source that feeds the cells that line our colon, a prototypical example of the kind of symbiosis between us and our gut flora. How important are these compounds our good bacteria derive from fiber? There is a condition known as diversion colitis that frequently develops in segments of the colon or rectum after surgical diversion of the fecal stream, meaning if you skip a segment of the bowel, like with an ileostomy, so that food no longer passes through that section, it becomes inflamed and can start bleeding, breaking down, closing off. How frequently does this happen? Up to 100% of the time — but the inflammation uniformly disappears after you reattach it to the fecal flow. We didn't know what caused it — maybe some kind of bacterial over-growth or bad bacteria? Or was it a nutritional deficiency of the lining of the colon due to the absence of the fiber needed to create the short-chain fatty acids? We didn't know until this study where they cured the inflammation by bathing the lining in what it so desperately needed. Severe inflammation gone in just a few weeks. We feed the good bacteria in our gut, and they feed us right back. It makes sense that we have good bacteria in our gut that feed us, tries to keep us healthy. They got a pretty good thing going. It's warm and moist and food just keeps magically coming down the pipe, but if we die, they lose out on all that. If we die, they die, so it's in their best evolutionary interest to keep our colon happy. But there are bad bugs too, like cholera, that cause diarrhea. They have a different strategy. The sicker they can make us, the more explosive the diarrhea, the better their chances of spreading to other people, into other colons. They don't care if we die because they don't intend on going down with the ship. So how does the body keep the good bacteria around while getting rid of the bad? Think about it. We have literally trillions of bacteria in our gut and so our immune system must constantly maintain a balance between tolerance to good bacteria while attacking bad bacteria. If we mess up this fine balance and start attacking harmless bacteria, it could lead to inflammatory bowel disease, where we're in constant red alert attack mode. The mechanisms by which the immune system maintains this critical balance remained largely undefined until now. If you think about it, there's got to be a way for our good bacteria to signal to our immune system that they're the good guys. And that signal is butyrate. Butyrate suppresses the inflammatory reaction, tells our immune system to stand down. So butyrate may behave as a microbial signal to inform our immune system that the relative levels of good bacteria are within the desired range. Butyrate calms the immune system down, saying, in effect, all's well; you got the good guys on board, ultimately rendering the intestinal immune system hyporesponsive, meaning accommodating to the beneficial bacteria. But in the absence of the calming effect of butyrate, our immune system is back in full force, attacking the bacteria within our gut because they're obviously not the right ones since butyrate levels are so low. So we evolved to have butyrate suppress our immune reaction, so should our good bacteria ever get wiped out and bad bacteria take over, our immune system would be able to sense this and go on a rampage and destroy the invaders, and continue rampaging until there were only good bacteria creating butyrate to put the immune system back to sleep. OK, here's the critical piece. Here's why this all matters. What if we don't eat enough fiber? Remember, our good bacteria use fiber to create butyrate. So if we don't eat enough fiber, then we can't make enough butyrate. We could have lots of good bacteria, but if we don't feed them fiber they can't make butyrate. Sensing such low levels of butyrate, our body mistakenly thinks our gut must be filled with bad bacteria and reacts accordingly. Our body can mistake low fiber intake for having a population of bad bacteria in our gut. Our body doesn't know about processed food. It evolved over millions of years getting massive fiber intake. Even during the Paleolithic period, 100 grams of fiber a day. So, on fiber-deficient Western diets, eating our Spam on Wonderbread, when our body detects low butyrate levels in the gut it doesn't think low fiber — as far as our body's concerned there's no such thing as low fiber — it thinks bad bacteria. Because for millions of years, low butyrate means bad bacteria, so that's the signal for our body to go on the inflammatory offensive. So that's one reason why fiber can be so anti-inflammatory, one of the reasons fiber intake is critical for optimal health. Not fiber supplements, but whole plant foods. Fiber supplementation with something like Metamucil may not replicate the results seen with a diet naturally high in fiber.

Microbiome: Gut Bugs and You | Warren Peters | TEDxLaSierraUniversity - YouTube


When I was just a little boy when I used the toilet, my mother taught me to wash my hands, and when I flushed and I looked at what was going down, I'd go, boy, you'd better wash your hands, you know? And I had this little puppy, you know, this little dog, and when I saw what came out of his body, and if I stepped in it, I'd go, boy, I'd better wash my hands. And my mother taught me all about germs and how bad they were, and you should always wash your hands, and I believed her. And then I grew up and I went to medical school, and we had the microscope. And we looked at these bacteria, and we heard these stories about how they caused these epidemics, and people dying all over the place, and then antibiotics came aboard, and now we could actually stamp out these epidemics of these bad germs. And then, all of the sudden, I started hearing about the good bugs, and I go, "What's that?" And as we began to look at the actual genetics, this was the breakthrough that allowed us to actually understand our microbiome, particularly in our GI tract, because when I was just looking at them through a microscope, it was very limiting. You could only see just certain kinds, but now that we could actually genetically look at this - this all started about ten years ago, and many of you are familiar with this - when they started looking at the genetics of the human, what are the genes? How many genes? What are the genes that we have? Through incredible research, it became apparent that we actually had, like, 26,000 genes. And I thought, wow, that's really cool, and everybody was studying the genes and this was really wonderful, until they started studying the genes of a rice plant. The rice plant had 46,000 genes. What's that?! You know, I mean, we're only 26 ... and they're 46?! And so this was very humbling to say that the rice plant was more sophisticated than humans. So then about five years ago everybody got busy, and they started to do the genome of the bacteria that resides inside of our body. Guess how many genes there are there. 100,000 genes. And so we began to look at, what are these bugs? Who are these? What are these? So there's, like, 100 trillion of them. When we think of cells of our body, our biome describes 90 percent of all the cells. We're only ten percent. So we just heard how wonderful it is to look at the astronomy and be humbled. I would suggest we probably just need to look inside of us and really get humble because "the other" is way beyond this. So these genes are incredible - there's about 1,000 different varieties, and then when we look at the species and sort of like that, it's incredible how diverse this whole environment, this whole biome is, and just resides in some just humble you and me. Well, okay, let's team up with our bugs. So we're 26,000 and they're 100,000. Wow, now we can trump the rice plant, (Laughs) so we better stay joined with them. So we begin to do - what actually does this biome do for us? So we first think of fermentation - talk about a microbrewery, you know, right here in our right colon, right here, these bugs are actually fermenting because this does a lot of good things, and they produce about the equivalent of a can of beer every day. And, yeah, that's true. (Laughs) And so, of course, we handle it quite nicely and so on, we don't get tipsy with that much. And so in this process of fermentation, some very important things are created; they're called short-chain fatty acids. These short-chain fatty acids are critical to our immune system. So if you breed a little mouse that has no biome, this little creature is very vulnerable to infections and so on. And so in many ways, this is quite dramatic, and we wonder, where does this biome come from? Because the little human, when he's just inside the uterus, he doesn't have a lot of bugs - this has been kind of coming in question here, like, right now - but so far, we've always thought of it being kind of sterile inside there. But when this little child goes through the birth canal and is breastfed, that is where the microbiome starts. This is critical to the life of this child, and our C-section babies and our babies that don't get breastfed, this is very difficult, so now, in modern places and hospitals that understand this, if the little child has to be born by C-section, a vaginal swab is actually taken and placed in the child's face and mouth so that they can actually become a mirobiome-positive creature, otherwise the immune system would not develop. So this is very, very vital, so that's kind of the positive side of the fermentation. But there's a negative side to this, and this is where - remember all these cells, these thousands of different kinds of bacteria - like most of life, it's about a balance, and when they are not balanced, we call it a dysbiosis. When that begins to happen, we find that it starts causing diseases. You know the word "irritable bowel syndrome"? Some of you may actually have it - you know, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal cramps, all these kind of things. You know about colitis, you've heard of people that have colitis. These kinds of things are when there is a dysbiosis, there's an imbalance between the good bugs and the bad bugs. Also, we're beginning to understand that a lot of the - what is called - autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, these kind of things may indeed be associated with an imbalance in our microbiome. So another things that our bugs do is they harvest calories. Now, if you're starving to death, and you're having to eat a lot of grasses and grains, and things that have a lot of fiber, your body can only absorb a certain number of calories, and we can't absorb, normally, any calories from fiber. Fiber just goes down to the biome, and the biome actually will harvest from the fiber, will actually harvest an extra 10-15 percent of the calories from that food we've eaten. This is how humanity has survived very, very severe circumstances. But just as there's a positive, there's also a negative. And we find when we look at this whole obese area, people who are overweight - Anybody have any deficit of calories? Lunch looked pretty good, didn't it? So we're not living in a cave anymore and we're not starving. So this good thing can then become a bad thing, particularly if we tend towards these particular kind of bugs, they're called Firmicutes - it's a big family group - and they harvest extra calories, so when we actually look at the biome of people who are overweight or people who have diabetes, they tend to have a lot more of this Firmicutes family. Are you following me? Do you see where this is starting to lead? What if we begin to change the biome to a more balanced biome for people that were overweight? Ha! You know how this is going to go, don't you? And the studies are already being done in mice, (Laughs) but you know, there's a lot to this. So this study came out about two years ago - it was a fascinating study - because they took these skinny, little mice and they just gave them an artificial sweetener, and sure enough, the little, skinny mice became fat and became diabetic. So then the obvious scientific question is, did the artificial sweetener change the metabolism of this little mouse, or did it change the microbiome? Guess what? So they did this elegant study - if you think of fecal transplant as elegant - and they took other little, skinny mice, and they just did a fecal transplant from the heavy mouse that had diabetes, no artificial sweeteners, and that little, thin mouse became obese, and overweight, and diabetic. So you begin to see how this science is beginning to progress. And a third area that I think is very critical is what we call the gut-brain axis. And when you look at animal studies, you can take, again, these little germ-free mice, and when they're born, they're kind of autistic. You know, they don't kind of hang out with their puppy brothers and sisters, and they don't eat well, and they don't do things well, and they're kind of autistic. But if you then transplant normal mouse biome into these little guys, they become normal, they just kind of hang out with each other and so on. You can see where this is going, can't you? (Laughs) And sure enough it's already happening. So in Europe, there's some beautiful studies that are being done on humans. Here in America, there's some people that on the side are giving probiotics, you know, probiotics have the microbiome in them - probiotic enemas - to autistic children, and actually seeing some development. I have not seen good randomized controlled trials, but where there's a little smoke, there definitely can be some fire. Now in the human studies, one of the things that we want to know - so we already know that the gut affects the brain, but we also want to know, does the brain affect the gut? And sure enough, when we find people that are under high stress - of course, nobody here in the audience, I'm sure ... high stress ... you know ... that must be someplace else - but under high stress the biome actually changes. And what we find is that there's a breakdown. So inside the gut there's a nice little layer of mucus - so you have all this bacteria and here you have your gut wall, and then this first layer of mucus, there is no bacteria, it's a barrier. The next layer is another layer of mucus that does have bacteria in it, and under stress, those mucus layers begin to break down, and antigens from the bacteria actually penetrate into the muscle wall and therefore into our circulation. So this barrier is broken down. And there's a great deal of study that's going on now to even look at microbiome and Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's is now being called diabetes type 3, because we know that those high insulin levels, those high sugar levels, all these things may well be contributing. So at first I thought, well, this is a little fringy, but when I began to see that we have neuroscientists that have linked together - 30 neuroscientists in the Scientific American just published an editorial saying we need to take another look at Alzheimer's disease in relationship to the biome. So let's kind of think about how we can feed this biome. What are the nutritional features that we can do to help our own biome? So, first of all, we have the refined carbohydrates and the processed foods. You're probably aware that of the 600,000 foods that are manufactured in America today, 72 percent of them have added sugar. That did not happen by accident. Sugar is addicting. That processed food is beginning to actually alter our biome to make us less and less healthy. So obviously, I teach my patients to just - when they go to a grocery store, just shop around the periphery where they have real food - well, except for the deli maybe - but real food, don't go into that sinister middle section unless you need toilet paper or something. But that's where the real food is, is there. Eat real food, because that's what our body is set up for. And then eating our vegetables, and a lot of the fermented vegetables, so your kimchi, and your sauerkraut, and your kefir, and your yogurt, all of these natural biome foods should be part of our everyday diet. And when we think about eating some healthy fats like avocados and walnuts and these kind of things, that's very important to create a healthy biome. And the biome needs protein, so good quality protein can be a very important feature. Well, I like to think about the lifestyles in addition to nutrition that could help our biome. And believe it or not, our gut bugs have a circadian rhythm. They have a night and day rhythm just like we do. And there are scientists that are doing research on the circadian rhythms of bacteria. And so when you don't sleep, your bugs don't sleep, and they need sleep. (Laughs) So it's really important to have that kind of lifestyle where you get sleep. And believe it or not, exercise also stimulates a healthy balance of the microbiome. You begin to see a trend here, don't you? So, then the one that I thought was just scary, horrible is that our use of antibiotics in America - 70 percent of all the antibiotics that are used in America are used to feed the animals from which we get our eggs and milk and meat and so on - 70 percent. Why do they do that? Because you give antibiotics to an animal and it gets fat faster, and it goes to market quicker. So 70 percent - ever wonder why we're getting more bacteria resistance? And think of all of you - you know, the first time you get a sniffle - "I've got a cold. Oh, I've got to get rid of this. Oh, I better call my doctor and ask for a Zipac or something," you know. "Quick, a Zipac!" Every time you treat your viral infections with an antibiotic, as in bacterial, it changes your biome. So if you do need antibiotics, be sure and follow up with your probiotics, your kefir, your sauerkraut, your kimchi, whatever you prefer. You've got to repopulate your bowel if indeed, you have to use antibiotics. So, gut bug cultivation. (Laughs) You know, we should start a primer on this, you know, there should be something like, "Gut Bugs for Dummies" or something like that. So first of all, we have to respect them. You know, they're 90 percent of who we are - all of our cells; they're there. And certainly, we want to take good care of them, we want to make sure that they get the proper sleep, the proper exercise. And if you have happy bugs, you're going ot be a healthy person. Thank you very much. (Applause)
