"The boon that he brings restores the world (elixir). The changes rung on the simple scale of the monomyth defy description. Many talejs isolate and greatly enlarge upon one or two of the typical elements of the full cycle (test motif, flight motif, abduction of the bride), others string a number of independent cycles into a single series (as in the Odyssey). Differing characters or episodes can become fused, or a single element can reduplicate itself and reappear under many changes. The outlines of myths and tales are subject to damage and obscuration."
- Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces Joseph Campbell (Get the book.)

"The changes will remove bias from the decision-making process by preventing prosecutors (the contract carriers and the HHS ALJs) from being judges. The changes will also place significant new pressure on the contract carriers to avoid making reimbursement demands absent good cause for so doing. EPILOGUE YV7 % A / ith equal force today we may say as President Reagan ? ? did in his first Inaugural Address, "In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem."
- Jonathan W. Emord, The Rise of Tyranny (Get the book.)

"In the nineteenth century, there were no dramatic changes in working-class living conditions, but there were advances in water purification and sewage control. Beginning in 1900, there were great improvements in food hygiene, especially in the quality of milk. Pasteurization (after 1890), as well as the bottling and safe transport of milk, reduced significantly the incidence of gastroenteritis in infants and children."

"Making small changes can actually offer a lot of relief. If you find yourself in a conflict with someone, stop, try to pinpoint what part of the conflict you're responsible for, and choose a different way from the list above to handle it. EXERCISE Harriet Checklist We'll repeat this exercise in each of these four areas in this chapter. It's important for you to see just how pervasive your inner critic is. You reward yourself with food instead of facing the struggles in your life because of your belief in your defeatism."
- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"But even in those exalted power roles, the occupant can be powerless to make many of the changes they would like to see happen. The point is that in every role you have some power to influence the world, and some very real limits to getting everything you want done the way you want it 37 and when you want it. That's life, and the same principles apply to the role of mother, father, boss, employee, laborer, or night watchman. That's the external world we live in and have to adapt to. We can increase our powerfulness in the world in two ways."

- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"Once I started to address those things and make changes, the fat just became a useless blanket I was hiding beneath." But this place of skepticism is where everyone who has attained lifelong weight loss has to start. Once you get past that, we'll be ready to look at what has kept you stuck in the same vicious cycle for so long. You see, the diet industry assumes that because you're desperate to lose weight, you'll have enough positive motivation to stick to the program and succeed."

- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"There could be a number of reasons for this resiliency under duress: • changes in lifestyle that reduce the toxins entering the body—for instance, eating less bad fats and quitting smoking • Beginning a treatment program designed to quell inflammation and repair the endothelial layer • A genetic predisposition to a lower-level inflammatory response Hardened, constricted arteries cause the heart to work harder to pump blood through narrower blood vessels. This can lead to angina?chest pains commonly associated with heart disease."

"Harman has repeatedly said that aging changes are induced by free radical reactions largely initiated by the mitochondria and that the rate of damage to the mitochondria determines life span. Chain reactions instigated by electron-hungry atoms go on everywhere all the time. A veritable center court of free radical activity is none other than the vital microscopic organs inside cells called mitochondria, where cellular energy is produced. Our cells utilize oxygen atoms to make energy. One by-product of this ongoing process is the constant creation of a huge number of free radicals."

"Today, a third of academic clinicians have financial ties to either the drug or the device industry, though nobody (except the companies themselves) has any idea how much money actually changes hands. Some, though not all, of them really are thought leaders—chairs of departments, winners of prestigious prizes. The more illustrious the thought leader is in his field, the more indispensable he is to his industrial sponsor's marketing efforts. Academic thought leaders defend their financial conflicts of interest, arguing that their opinions aren't for sale, that their integrity can't be bought."

"This changes the way we ought to be thinking about health care reform. What we want are efficient hospitals, places where patients can be sure they will get high-quality care, care that gives them the procedures and tests and drugs they need—and doesn't give them what they don't need—for the most reasonable cost. That's what markets are supposed to do—create efficiency."

"Luckily, research has discovered that certain probiotic species can prevent such changes in microflora and reduce illness in infants. Probiotics were first used to prevent infant disease in a clinical trial in 1994. In the randomized trial held in Baltimore, 55 infants were given an infant formula with or without Bifidobacterium bifi-dum and Streptococcus thermophilus. Infants are commonly infected with Rotavirus, the most frequent cause of diarrhea in children. These probiotics significantly reduced the risk of diarrhea and the growth of Rotavirus."

"His story is important because it illuminates many of the changes managed care brought to American medicine—most of them for the worse. Embraced by employers and patients as a way to control double-digit increases in health insurance premiums, managed care did manage to rein costs in for a time. By the late 1990s, however, managed care was paradoxically encouraging doctors to provide unnecessary care, while simultaneously driving a wedge between patients and their physicians."
- Shannon Brownlee, Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer (Get the book.)

"This changes everything. Instead of being associated with a body part, pain is now expressed independently of any organ, structure, or tissue—and also independently of clear definition. For who can adequately define "mind," let alone appreciate its very great mystery? Surely the task is beyond this book, and perhaps beyond any tome. Clearly it has been beyond the scope of medicine. The concept is associated more with theology or philosophy than it is with medicine."
- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Other pills, legal and prescribed, are supposed to do nothing more—again, this notion of "only"—than cause changes in "experiences" or "feelings." Indeed, after semisynthetic narcotics, the entire category of "antidepressants"—pills designed only for the purpose of changing feelings— is next in prescription activity in the United States. "Well, I feel better now," said Fran, putting down her empty coffee mug. Second, no one makes Vicodin or any of the semisynthetic narcotics in his or her backyard laboratories."

- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Whether such screening is the most cost-effective approach to saving those lives (as opposed to promoting behavioral changes) is not known. Prostate Cancer. We pose a story, not so hypothetical. A man has a routine blood test which shows elevated PSA. This finding is followed by a biopsy. Assume almost the worst, that this biopsy is positive. If the tumor appears aggressive, radical treatment is indicated; if not, the question is this: What should be done? Should the patient still be subject to prostatectomy or radiation?"

- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Following menopause and hormonal changes, however, a woman's bone mineral density falls. A net demineralization of bone takes place. Bone cell turnover markedly increases, creating a situation where the soft tissues of the body, such as arterial walls and kidneys, can become contaminated with lead stored for decades in bones. No wonder the blood pressure of many women soars during menopause."

"Scenario 1: Stable Plaque In this scenario, the fibrous cap holds firm, withstanding the roiling changes from within and the immune system's siege from outside."

"Vitamin C changes the ferric iron (Fe3+) in food into ferrous iron (Fe2+). The vitamin C in the food becomes chelated with the iron in an iron ascorbate form that is very absorbable. However, vitamin C does not help with the absorption of iron from iron supplements. THREE OTHER ENHANCERS OF IRON ABSORPTION There are three other enhancers of iron absorption. The mechanisms of action and the amount of the increases in absorption of these enhancers are not known at present. First, the presence of heme iron acts as an enhancer of non-heme iron absorption."

"Having weathered millennia of changes in weather and pests, these trees carry traits that could be used to prevent a disaster in our food chain. With a population nearing 2 million, the silk route's urban sprawl has been encroaching on these ancient apple forests. Fortunately, American fruit hunters have spent the past decade combing the wilds of Kazakhstan to collect the genetic pool of apples endemic to the region. Philip Forsline, the curator of the U.S."

"Once these changes take place, you should expect 1-2 pounds of weight loss a week, as long as you're regulating your nutritional intake! If I start slowly and only work out 3 days a week how is that going to help me lose weight? Good question. When you start off slowly, you lessen the chance of injury and give your body a chance to make the neurological changes that occur when you start an exercise program. Most importantly, we want you to make this a habit. If you go out too fast with weight loss the only goal, then your chances of gaining the weight back later on are higher."
- Kevin Gianni and Annmarie Colameo, The Busy Person's Fitness Solution (Get the book.)

"Other health care economists point to "moral hazard," the term they use to suggest that being insured changes the behavior of patients. The moral hazard argument says that because people don't pay out of pocket, they use more health care than they really need. If employers offered their employees vouchers for sports cars, goes the argument, or the government provided universal sports car coverage, we'd all have a little roadster sitting in the garage."

"Depending on how good our genetics, lifestyle, and environment are, our changes can be graceful or extreme. If our environment is neglected and toxic, watch out, our perimenopause or menopausal years will be tumultuous, sort of like a sudden global warming. 13 We women are hormonally diverse creatures. Most women in their forties don't think that they are candidates for using hormones. Sure, thirty- or forty-something women are thinking about exercise and vitamins, but not hormones. And who can blame them? Hormones have taken on a scary aura in the press."

"Because blood pressure readings are affected throughout the course of the day by changes in activity, stress, fluid levels, and diet, I think it's a good idea to have a reading taken as often as possible. It's a routine indicator of wellness Can Folic Acid Lead to Fewer Stroke Deaths? Some research suggests that foods fortified with folic acid might help reduce the deaths from stroke."

"A study in Finland compared changes in bone thickness and density in two groups of 10- to 12-year-olds receiving the same amount of calcium. One group consumed calcium and vitamin D in the form of cheese, while the other received supplements. The cheese-eating group appeared to have the larger increase in bone mass. Lower risk of high blood pressure."

"Most exciting is that these two together show more beneficial LDL cholesterol changes than doubling the dose of the statin medication. Talk with your doctor if you want to follow the plan, as your medication may need to be adjusted. for anyone concerned about reducing their risk of heart disease. Here's what you need to know. Power up with plant sterols. Although they sound like they might have been hatched in a laboratory as some kind of Frankenfood experiment, plant sterols are actually quite natural."

"Some people are only motivated by fear and crisis, and heart bypass surgery can serve as that crisis for people in a way that motivates them to make lasting changes. However, those people would be far better off if they were able to find a way to make such changes before giving away their power, and before having their sternum cracked open by surgeons. So, whether we're talking about foods, drugs, cosmetics or medical procedures, disempowerment is one of the most effective mind hacks used by the manufacturers and marketers of those products and services."
- Mike Adams, Spam Filters for Your Brain (Get the book.)

"But at the root of all these biochemical changes is a single ecological change. For the shift from leaves to seeds affects much more than the levels of omega-3 and omega-6 in the body. It also helps account for the flood of refined carbohydrates in the modern diet and the drought of so many micronutrients and the surfeit of total calories. From leaves to seeds: It's almost, if not quite, a Theory of Everything."
- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"For us, the first big change came ten thousand years ago with the advent of agriculture. (And it devastated our health, leading to a panoply of deficiencies and infectious diseases that we've only managed to get under control in the last century or so.) The biggest change in our food environment since then? The advent of the modern diet. To get a better grip on the nature of these changes is to begin to understand how we might alter our relationship to food—for the better, for our health."

- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"The intervention group changes its diet in some prescribed way while the control group (one hopes) does not. The two groups are then tracked over many years to learn whether the intervention affects relative rates of chronic disease."

- Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto (Get the book.)

"And for 10 to 15 percent of all men, those levels will dip below normal even as early as their 30s if there is stress, depression, personal life changes or medications. This in turn causes a decrease, not only in sexual desire and performance, but in the competitive drive to succeed and accomplish in life. In women, excessive estrogen in the body causes a reduction in testosterone levels, which leads to a similar decline in sexual desire and performance and a similar reduction in "life drive."
