Take a break: procrastination found to bolster productivity
While the act of procrastination is viewed by many as something highly unacceptable, a trait of the lazy and easily-bored in society, research shows that it may actually lead to increased productivity.
Professor and procrastination expert Piers Steel, Ph.D, gathered 24 participants and divided them in two groups in an effort to assess whether delaying tasks helped or hindered their completion.

Vitamin C has a patchy history as a cancer therapy, but researchers at the University of Iowa believe that is because it has often been used in a way that guarantees failure.
Most vitamin C therapies involve taking the substance orally. However, UI scientists have shown that giving vitamin C (also known as ascorbate) intravenously—thus bypassing normal gut metabolism and excretion pathways—creates blood levels that are 100 to 500 times higher than levels seen with oral ingestion. It is this super-high concentration in the blood that is crucial to vitamin C’s ability to attack cancer cells.
Medicine is undergoing an existential crisis today. Its core value proposition – to help and not hurt -- is failing to manifest. Patients are suffering. Doctors are suffering.
The only exuberant party on the battlefield against disease is the pharmaceutical industry. An industry whose annual casualties far exceed the death total from our two decade long involvement in the Vietnam war.
The entire system is on the precipice of a collapse, if not for economic reasons alone, then certainly for ethical and intellectual ones.
The irony is that the system has become so ineffective and dangerous that avoiding medical treatment (excluding perhaps emergency care) has become one of if not the best healthcare strategy you can implement to protect your health and well-being.
Nowhere is this clearer than in the realm of cancer.
If medicine makes it through the birth process of its own existential crises, these principles will invoke an entirely new medical model where the placebo effect is not to be "controlled for," but liberated and expanded by educating the patient to the fact that they can and do heal themselves, mainly by avoiding medical treatment and doing the right amount of nothing.

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), long-known for its heart health benefits, has now been identified for its rapid destruction of cancer cells. While scientists have proven that the oleocanthal compound found in EVOO causes cell death in cancer cells, they have been unable to provide an explanation for this phenomenon until now. Paul Breslin, David Foster, and Onica LeGendre offer answers in their paper, published in Molecular & Cellular Oncology.
In their recent study, the researchers discovered that the key to understanding the toxic effect of oleocantha in cancerous cells lies in its reaction with the lysosomes of the cell, where the cells store waste: the oleocantha ruptures the cancer cell lysosomes causing cell death within 30 minutes to an hour while leaving un-cancerous cells unharmed. This suggests that the lysosomal membranes of cancerous cells are weaker than those of uncancerous cells. Because of oleocantha's targeted damage to cancer cells, it may prove an ideal option for therapeutic cancer treatment. Paul Breslin, co-author of the study, said "The mechanism of killing cancer cells and sparing healthy cells, lysosomal membrane permeabilization, has been hypothesized as a possible mechanism of effectively killing cancer cells and sparing healthy tissues but has never been realized before. Our realization of this makes this paper of particular therapeutic interest for cancer treatment."
The study's focus on the effect of oleocantha on cancerous and un-cancerous cells leads to larger implications about the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, which is rich in EVOO. Breslin stated, "the Mediterranean diet is known to be associated with a reduced risk of many different kinds of cancer. Whereas the entire diet likely has many benefits, this study points directly to the olive oil phenolic, oleocanthal, as playing an especially important role in these observations. As more people turn to the Mediterranean diet as a healthy life option, oleocanthal is growing in its significance as a key active component of this diet."

Eggs, Choline and Prostate Cancer
I have known about this for years - but here is the proof.
Another expose from Dr Michael Greger
Please share with any bloke you know over 40 and if they eat loads of eggs every week or food with eggs and chicken - encourage them to ask their GP for a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test.
Want to lose weight?
Here;s a few things you should be looking at.
What do you eat?
How much do you eat?
When do you eat?
How do you eat?
What combnations of food do you eat?
What mood are you in when you eat?
What drugs are you taking that may cuse weight gain as a side effect?
250ml Water- Distilled best - De-ionised and filtered are ok - NO TAP WATER.
160gm Ascorbic Acid - from Classikool on Amazon
195gm Sunflower Lecithin Powder- Special Ingredients on Amazon
Mix the water and Vodka.
Pour this mixture into a small sterile saucepan of the Ascorbic acid
(biolied water will do after cleaning)
Very slowly heat the liquid remaining below 32-35º, whilst stirring with a small whisk until complete dilution takes place.
Pour the mixture into a glass container with the Lecithin and blend for 2 minutes.
Cool in a refrigerator.
After one hour blend again for 2 minutes.
Cool again in a refrigerator.
Repeat 4-5 times.
You don't have to do the next step if you don't have a sonar bath - if just makes more liposomes.
Pour the mixture into the sonic bath and stir with a plastic or wooden whisk for 20-30 mins.
Do not exceed 32-35º.
Allow it to cool.
It doesn't always have to go in a fridge as I have found it thickens quite considerably - so ok to leave it in a cool place.
Its anything up to bowel intolerance really!
So start with a teaspoon in the morning for a few days and then add a teaspoon in the afternoon/evening with food.
3 teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon and from a normal and not therapeutic dosage this is ok. The therapeutic dose is much higher.
Reduce dosage for children by body weight.
L Vit C is up 10 times stronger than IV Vit C and therefore much stronger than the Ascorbic acid you may get from a health food store.
If you have any queries use the Contact form and get in touch.
The quantity left here is about a third of what I normally make using this recipe.
And it looks a little darker in the picture - must be the light - it is normally the colour of caramel.

Shanghai Government Officially Recommends Vitamin C for COVID-19
(OMNS Mar 3, 2020) The government of Shanghai, China has announced its official recommendation that COVID-19 should be treated with high amounts of intravenous vitamin C. (1) Dosage recommendations vary with severity of illness, from 50 to 200 milligrams per kilogram body weight per day to as much as 200 mg/kg/day.
These dosages are approximately 4,000 to 16,000 mg for an adult, administered by IV. This specific method of administration is important, says intravenous therapy expert Atsuo Yanagisawa, MD, PhD, because vitamin C's effect is at least ten times more powerful by IV than if taken orally.
Dr. Yanagisawa is president of the Tokyo-based Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy.
He says, "Intravenous vitamin C is a safe, effective, and broad-spectrum antiviral."

(OMNS Mar 18, 2020)
A group of medical doctors, healthcare providers and scientists met online March 17, 2020, to discuss the use of high dose intravenous vitamin C (IVC) in the treatment of moderate to severe cases of Covid-19 patients. The key guest was Dr. Enqian Mao, chief of emergency medicine department at Ruijin Hospital, a major hospital in Shanghai, affiliated with the Joatong University College of Medicine. Dr. Mao is also a member of the Senior Expert Team at the Shanghai Public Health Center, where all Covid-19 patients have been treated. In addition, Dr. Mao co-authored the Shanghhai Guidelines for the Treatment of Covid-19 Infection, an official document endorsed by the Shanghai Medical Association and the Shanghai city government. 
Dr. Mao has been using high-dose dose IVC to treat patients with acute pancreatitis, sepsis, surgical wound healing and other medical conditions for over 10 years. When Covid-19 broke out, he and other experts thought of vitamin C and recommended IVC for the treatment of moderate to severe cases of Covid-19 patients. The recommendation was accepted early in the epidemic by the Shanghai Expert Team. All serious or critically ill Covid-19 patients in the Shanghai area were treated in Shanghai Public Health Center, for a total of 358 Covid-19 patients as of March 17th, 2020.
Dr. Mao stated that his group treated ~50 cases of moderate to severe cases of Covid-19 infection with high dose IVC.
The IVC dosing was in the range of 10,000 mg - 20,000 mg a day for 7-10 days, with 10,000 mg for moderate cases and 20,000 for more severe cases, determined by pulmonary status (mostly the oxygenation index) and coagulation status.
All patients who received IVC improved and there was no mortality.
Compared to the average of a 30-day hospital stay for all Covid-19 patients, those patients who received high dose IVC had a hospital stay about 3-5 days shorter than the overall patients.
Dr. Mao discussed one severe case in particular who was deteriorating rapidly. He gave a bolus of 50,000 mg IVC over a period of 4 hours. The patient's pulmonary (oxygenation index) status stabilized and improved as the critical care team watched in real time.
There were no side effects reported from any of the cases treated with high dose IVC.
