"Coriolus has a unique, plush, velvety surface that is colored in varying shades of brown or gray, with a distinctive pattern of alternating bands of dark and light color. In the West Coriolus is referred to as "turkey tail," due to its fan shaped, multicolored cap. C. versicolor is also known as Trametes versicolor. The Latin translation of Trametes is: "one who is thin" and versicolor means "variously colored." In Japan it is called Kawaratake, "the mushroom by the river bank," and in China it is referred to as Yun Zhi, meaning "cloud mushroom."

"His palms have the mixed color of five hundred lotuses, while each finger tip has eighty-four thousand signet-marks, and each mark eighty-four thousand colors; each color has eighty-four thousand rays which are soft and mild and shine over all things that exist. With these jewel hands he draws and embraces all beings. The halo surrounding his head is studded with five hundred Buddhas, miraculously transformed, each attended by five hundred Bodhisattvas, who are attended, in turn, by numberless gods."

"Brighter and clearer color paints tended to be made up from toxic metals such as mercury, cadmium, arsenic, lead, antimony, tin, cobalt, manganese, and chromium, whereas the earth colors tended to contain less toxic ingredients, such as harmless iron and carbon compounds. Analysis of the areas of various colors in randomly selected paintings by these artists compared to "control" artists (contemporary painters without rheumatic disease) suggests that Rubens and Renoir used significantly more bright and clear colors based on toxic metals and fewer earth colors."

"At the major fast food chains, color additives are added to soft drinks, salad dressings, cookies, condiments, chicken dishes, and sandwich buns. But the fast food industry isn't solely to blame, as food additives are found in just about everything these days. Many strawberry yogurts, for example, get their color from carmine, which is also found in many frozen fruit bars, candies, fruit fillings, and juice drinks, as well as cosmetics like lipstick and eye shadow. Carmine is a food dye derived from ground-up insects that produce the pigment-containing carminic acid."

"Artificial Colors (listed on labels as F D & C colors, or as a specific color such as Yellow #5): These are made from coal-tar and have been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals. Yum. BHA and BHT: These are also made from coal-tar and have been linked to hyperactive behavior in children. They are on the FDA's GRAS list (Generally Recognized As Safe). EDTA (ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid): This synthetic chemical is made from minerals, is irritating to the skin and can cause allergic reactions. It also can cause kidney damage."

"Some people like to color in their journals or draw pictures. Molly used colored pens to highlight different foods in her journal. Jessica put her journal onto the computer and added to it each day. Mark drew lines under each entry. Elizabeth kept her journal right in her daily organizer. Let your journal fit who you are. Your journal will tell your story, so enjoy writing it. Don't skip this step. It is really, really important! Once you have your own book to write in, keeping a food journal is very simple. First you make four columns. They will include: 1. The date and time of your entry."

"The red or yellow color of a soft: drink is rarely due to natural cherry or orange extract. Artificial colorings are much cheaper than real, natural ingredients. The artificial substances are also usually more stable. Artificial colorings may be either naturally derived or synthetic. The naturally derived colorants, such as beta-carotene (the vegetable form of vitamin A used to color margarine), beet-juice extract, or substances extracted from flower petals, haven't generally been well tested, but they're presumed to be safe."

"Watch the color of your urine. It should be almost colorless or light yellow. If you take a synthetic vitamin supplement or a separate vitamin B complex, your urine will tend to be bright yellow. It would be best to stop taking your multivitamins and your B complex for the next couple of weeks so you can accurately judge your urine color. I don't believe synthetic vitamins should be used at all. 4. If you notice that your urine is darker than usual, you can be sure your body is not being adequately hydrated."

"A good way to understand these stages is through an analogy using the spectrum of visible color: Think about the wavelengths of color we see in a rainbow—although we cant draw hard lines between them, and although we can identify millions of subtle shades, when we look at a rainbow we do see distinct gradations and specific hues. Each color is a whole in itself, yet it is formed in the relation between its neighbors above and below on the spectrum. And we can see something very similar in the distinct stages found within the developmental spectrum of consciousness and culture."

"When an electrode was touched to one place, for example, the patient would "see" a burst of color, and that location would be noted as a visual center. Aside from the bizarre experience of seeing a living brain exposed to the bright lights of the operating room, what made this particular film so interesting was the way the man's brain was working. When certain sites were electrically stimulated and produced his experience of seeing color, for example, those places didn't seem to correspond to the ones that are traditionally associated with vision."

"Was it a color? Was it a type of car? And then I try multiple choice. Was it the color red, blue, or green? It is a quick but sensitive way to get a read on the extent of a person's memory loss. If you want, you could ask a friend or family member to administer such a challenge to you, or you could take a test on a Web site. However, judgment is required in interpreting the results of any test (some test takers get very anxious when challenged in this direct way). I certainly wouldn't recommend self-diagnosis, and am skeptical of online diagnostic tests."

"They will be labeled as FD&C or D&C, followed by a color and a number. Example: FD&C Red No. 6 / D&C Green No. 6. Many synthetic colors can be carcinogenic. If a cosmetic contains them, don't use it. Synthetic fragrances: The synthetic fragrances used in cosmetics can have hundreds of ingredients. There is no way to know what the chemicals are, since on the label it will simply read "fragrance." Some problems caused by these chemicals include headaches, dizziness, rash, hyperpigmentation, violent coughing, vomiting, skin irritation—the list goes on."

"Sure, these fecal "boats" produced as a result of eating pulverized oak tree toast would float in the toilet—but they were definitely not normal. The color of stool produced by someone eating a plant-based diet is light yellow to brown. However, various vegetables can impart distinct colors. For example, beets will turn the stool dark red. The American diet loaded with iron-laden meats imparts the more familiar darker brown color to the stool."

"In Japan there is a saying: not dressing up the meal with color is like sending someone out of the house without clothes. They feel that food should look as good as it smells and tastes. We agree, and offer some suggestions here from the Japanese, who have perfected the art of food presentation. Think Five Colors Make your dinner beautiful with color. There is a philosophy in Japan best exemplified by the Shojin Ryori, the rituals of preparing and eating vegetarian Buddhist temple fare. The goal is to "get five colors on your table." The colors are red, yellow, blue-green, white, and black."

"Color is not a clue; whole oats are light in color, for instance, and refined flours can be darkened with molasses. Here, again, examine labels closely. Look for "100 percent whole." Products described as multigrain, cracked wheat, seven-grain, stone-ground, 100 percent wheat, enriched flour, or degerminated corn-meal are not whole grain. Pumpernickel is made with rye and wheat flours, but is seldom whole grain. It can also be a challenge to find whole-grain bread that contains no oil or high fructose corn syrup."

"Penfield had performed extraordinary research on epileptic patients with anaesthetized scalps while they were fully conscious, showing that if he stimulated certain parts of their brains with electrodes, specific scenes from their past could be evoked in living color and excruciating detail. Even more amazingly, whenever he had stimulated the same spot in the brain (often unbeknownst to the patient) it seemed to elicit the same flashback, with the same level of detail. Penfield, and an army of scientists after him, naturally concluded that certain portions of the."

"Curcumin is what gives turmeric its yellow color. Studies have shown that it can inhibit colon cancer cells by some 96% in a matter of hours. It also appears to have great potential in counteting the effects of prostate cancer and breast cancer. In a sense, curcumin can be thought of as natural chemotherapy—with the ability to selectively kill cancer cells, while at the same time leaving normal cells alone. Note: Curcumin and green tea strongly reinforce each other. Green tea extract?20 mg (83%) Green tea antioxidants are of the same family as grape seed and pine bark extracts."

"You imagine your mind's field of vision changing first to a color you associate with stress and tension, such as red, and then to a color that you associate with calm and relaxation. Deep blue is an example of a color that many find calming. Visualization of colors that feel calming are thought to promote relaxation.

"In many ways, your body has been designed for the type of plant-rich diet based on the color Code. The imbalance between our diet, evolved over the last few hundred years, and our genes, which evolved over the last 100,000 years, causes profound dislocations in the machinery of many cells throughout our bodies. In the next chapter you will see how overweight and obesity, the most common nutritional disorders in our society, increase inflammation as well."

"There are several factors that affect your risk from sun exposure, including how much time you spend outdoors, your natural skin color and use of sunbeds. Risk factors for skin cancer include: • spending time outdoors • using sunbeds • having fair skin, hair or eyes. As skin cancer develops slowly, you are more likely to develop it the older you become. There are two main types of skin cancer: squamous cell cancer and basal cell cancer. Melanoma is the other form of skin cancer. Basal cell is the most common type of skin cancer; it tends to present as a bleeding or unhealing sore."

"My coauthor Genie James's favorite source for safe or "green" make up and hair color is The Body Shop. Marketing Week has reported that The Body Shop was voted the Top Green Brand in the United Kingdom and the eighth greenest brand in the United States. These findings are according to the recent 2007 Image Power Green Brands Survey and Marketing Week/ Brand Index Online Survey. You can purchase The Body Shop products online, www.thebodyshop.com, or just head out to your nearest mall. Recently Genie also discovered a delightful website where you can purchase safe cosmetics online."

"Had Vitigis possessed a sense of architectural irony, he might have remarked on the city's most prominent statue of the emperor, an equestrian monument atop a circular column clad in bronze "softer in color than pure gold, while in value it does not fall much short of an equal weight of silver,"47 placed just north of the imperial palace above the public square outside the senate house."

"The description of the disease itself is a model of clinical description: [Victims] "had a sudden fever, [though] the body showed no change from its previous color, nor was it hot as might be expected, but of such a languid sort that neither the sick themselves nor a physician who touched them could afford any suspicion of danger. . . ."

"Dalton often said that, to him, grass and blood were the same color. Blue wildflowers were the same color as what others called "pink." It puzzled him—why could others see these colors called "red" or "green," "pink" and "blue," when he could not? Red, he wrote, appeared as "little more than a shade or defect of light." With such a famous sufferer, soon the very term for color blindness came to bear Dalton's name. "Daltonism." Eventually, Dalton hit upon a possible reason why his world was monochrome."

"To the woodcutter in New Hampshire and the cowpuncher on the western plains, the world on TV becomes their world, too—a world where the color is washed out and replaced by caricatures and national averages. Standards are set according to the great wash of broadcasting and advertising in which local particularities are bleached out and local colors faded. Everything comes to be seen through the grayish-white light of the national media. Instead of speaking their regional dialect, the lumps are soon speaking the lingua franca of the evening news."
