"My wife was actually the leader of her species. I was going to be the leader of our species." It was becoming a hopeless situation. Melvin Worthy saw his wife killing him and thought, "When she has killed me, the people near me will spontaneously die off. It was like I was the queen bee for our species." On day seven of Zoloft, while driving down a highway with his wife sitting beside him in the passenger seat, Melvin became certain that he had to kill the alien inside her to save himself and the world."

"I was going to be the leader of our species." It was becoming a hopeless situation. Melvin Worthy saw his wife killing him and thought, "When she has killed me, the people near me will spontaneously die off. It was like I was the queen bee for our species." On day seven of Zoloft, while driving down a highway with his wife sitting beside him in the passenger seat, Melvin became certain that he had to kill the alien inside her to save himself and the world. With delusional thoughts racing wildly through his mind, he drove his car full speed into a head-on collision with a road barrier."

"The rate of biosynthesis of vitamin C in those species capable of producing the vitamin varies considerably between species. r Biosynthesis of vitamin C Step 1. Blood sugar (glucose) is made into glucuronate. ^GJucuronate^ Step 2. Glucuronate is converted to L-gluconate. I ^UGluconate^ Step 3. L-gluconate is i----reduced with the enzyme L-xylo-hexulonolactone. C^^g^no-gamma-lactone^) Step 4. L-Ascorbic Acid is made with the enzyme L-gulonolactone oxidase. This final step is not possible in humans due to the lack of the enzyme L-gulonolactone oxidase."

"These ancestors fathered not only the human members of the clan, but also the animal species after which the clan was named; thus the human members of the beaver clan were blood cousins of the animal beavers, protectors of the species and in turn protected by the animal wisdom of the wood folk. Or another example: The ho-gan, or mud hut, of the Navahos of New Mexico and Arizona, is constructed on the plan of the Navaho image of the cosmos. The entrance faces east. The eight sides represent the four directions and the points between."

"Ginseng The term "ginseng" refers to several species of the genus Panax, of which the most commonly used are American ginseng {Panax quinquefolius) and Asian ginseng {Panax ginseng). A third type is Siberian ginseng {Eleutherococcus senticosus), which is from a different genus and does not contain the components (ginsen-osides) present in the Panax species that are believed to give it healing qualities. For more than two thousand years, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have used ginseng root to treat various ailments."

"Prevalence of Candida species in Turkish Children: Relationship Between Dietary Intake and Carriage. Kadir T; Uygun B; et al. Archives of Oral Biology, 2005 January, 50(l):33-37. In exploring the prevalence and intensity of Candida species in 300 healthy Turkish children, the researchers determined that candidal carriage was 18.5 percent in children who were fed with both breast milk and bottle milk or other fluids, as compared with 0 percent in children fed only with breast milk."

"There are said to be as many as 20 species of the Hoodia plant, but only the Hoodia gordonii variety grown in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa has evidence to support its appetite suppressing qualities. This makes it very difficult to come by, but there are many more Hoodia products on the market than can possibly be sustained by this rare plant using the exact species and portion of the plant said to provide benefits. Greedy manufacturers can use any of the Hoodia species and still lawfully claim that their product contains one hundred percent Hoodia."

"These organisms also appeared to be registering light from other species, although the greatest synchronicities occurred between members of the same species.16 Once the light waves of one organism were initially absorbed by another organism, the first organism's light would begin trading information in synchrony.17 Living things also appeared to communicate information with their surroundings. Bacteria absorbed light from their nutritional media: the more bacteria present, Popp found, the greater the absorption of light.18 Even the white and yolk of an egg appear to communicate with the shell."

"Numerous studies of various animal species have proven it: myopic and hyperopic stimuli lead to myopia and hyperopia development in primates (and humans) over time. These results are due to the proven fact that the retina undergoes specific adaptations and shifting, depending on the position of the focal point of an image. Therefore, the eye isn't a kind of camera with fixed focusing but a very sophisticated camera with autofocusing. Working consciously on the position of focus (through suitable work with gradual retinal defocus), over time, we can get at changing the "default" adjustment."

"This elevation of tension, anxiety, and physical illness resulting from untruth makes perfect evolutionary sense: we're physically punished for lying because it disrupts the essential relationships and networks that both protect us and make us successful as a species. So, over time, telling untruths is the personal and social equivalent of being hit by a Mack truck. Positive emotions give us the smooth ride of a Rolls-Royce and are the reward we get for speaking the truth. The final Brilliant Health practice is Truth: telling ourselves the truth and eliminating the lies we tell others."

"I use the word normal because our bodies and minds, which have evolved over millions of years, have been optimized to ensure the proliferation and survival of our species rather than an extended life span for individuals. Thus, the onset of age-related conditions such as brain aging appears to be part of the "normal" sequence of events that takes place after we have reached an age when we can no longer reproduce and fulfill our evolutionary purpose.16 It would actually be quite abnormal for someone not to have increasing memory challenges in their seventies, eighties, and beyond."

"By late March, the hardiest species have shed their flowers and leaves, even the golden yellow-flowered laburnum that adorns so many Punjab gardens. The sun heats and scorches as the days grow longer, drying the dew before it settles. Tinder-dry brush and woodland burst into flame, filling the dusty air with thick wood ash. The dry earth cracks and fissures as shimmering heat creates quicksilver mirages on the parched fields. Everyone waits and waits for rain. Menacing banks of dark clouds form every May afternoon on the southern horizon as the temperature falls slightly."

"There are not only more older people alive today with aging bodies and minds than ever before, but also more challenges to the adaptation of our species on a planet of finite resources. The Alzheimer's movement is a march-to-progress juggernaut: Give us enough time, people, and money, the line goes, and we will fix it. But after thirty years of research and tens of billions of dollars spent, we're not even close. In fact, our expensive genetic tests and neuroimaging devices have actually caused us to drift deeper into confusion and little closer to finding a cure."

"Van Wijk placed a jar of Acetabularia acetabulum, another species of simple algae, near a healer and his patient, then measured the photon emissions of the algae during healing sessions and periods of rest. After analyzing the data, he discovered remarkable alterations in the photon count of the algae. The emissions significantly changed during the healing sessions, as though the quality of algae were being bombarded with light. There also seemed to be changes in the rhythm of the emissions, as though the algae had become attuned to a stronger source of light."

"If a small African foraging band experienced two consecutive drought years, they simply moved into better-watered areas or fell back on less desirable plant foods, perhaps species that required more energy to harvest. Our Stone Age ancestors were opportunistic, accustomed to sudden climatic change, and able to adapt to it in ways that became impossible when populations rose rapidly after the latest Ice Age. Until about eleven thousand years ago, when farming appeared, earth's population had not yet reached the critical point where it exceeded the natural carrying capacity of the land."

"Persons with dementia are not a separate species from the rest of us. Rather, we are all engaged in the process of aging, and as we undergo this admittedly difficult process we have within us the potential for considerable wisdom, self-knowledge, and emotional connectivity. Anne Hunsaker Hawkins, a specialist in the Medical Humanities movement, has written a seminal book called Reconstructing Illness: Studies in Portography."

"It is important to keep in mind that the variability of such refractive conditions is not steady within a species. The animal's eye adapted to its visual environment (see Miles & Wallman, 1990). The Reason Why Wearing Glasses Prevents Recovery The eye adapts its focal status to the near visual field. When this happens, a minus lens is prescribed. This lens has a negative effect on the human eye. The minus lens produces an overac-commodative effect. Further, the minus-lens glasses limit normal range of eye movement. Wearing any pair of glasses necessarily limits motion."

"The number of isoprenoid side chains can vary from zero to ten, depending on the animal species. In humans, coenzyme Qi0 has ten isoprenoid units—thus the name coenzyme Qiq. A deficiency in any of the required amino acids, vitamins, and other minerals impairs the endogenous formation of coenzyme Qi0 in the body. Without coenzyme Q10, our bodies cannot survive. As coenzyme Qi0 levels in the cells falls, so does our general health. Clearly, this is a vital nutrient. But what is coenzyme Qiq, and why is it so important and crucial for survival? Coenzyme Qiq is a fat-soluble compound."

"Reactive oxygen species (ROS). See Free radicals. Ribonucleic acid (RNA). A genetic compound containing ribose. In animal cells, RNA is used to pass the genetic information used to synthesize proteins. In the cell, RNA is required to maintain constant levels of important proteins, including enzymes. Ribose. See D-ribose. Salvage pathway. A metabolic pathway used in heart, skeletal muscle and other tissues to preserve energy as adenine nucleotides are catabolized. D-ribose is required to allow this pathway to function. Total adenine nucleotides (TAN)."

"While free radicals are important natural compounds, a buildup of these highly reactive chemical species can damage the mitochondrial membrane, mitochondrial DNA, the outer membrane of the cell, or other important cellular organelles and constituents. Free-radical buildup can be caused by periods of cellular hypoxia, dysfunction of mitochondrial mechanism, or during reperfusion (the rapid restoration of blood) of ischemic tissue."

"Less ROS (Random Oxygen species "Free-Radical") generation ?Reduces xanthineoxidase resulting in less ROS (free radical) production What's Next: ArginoCarn Research Currently Underway? Much of what comprises my concept and my restorative path in understanding treatments under "Metabolic Cardiology" is based upon the Metabolic Syndrome."

"If so, then we must be willing to pose an even more difficult question: What responsibility do we have to use our power in the presence of what are arguably the greatest threats to the future of our lives, our world, and even our species? Now Is the Time Clearly we don't know all there is to know about how the universe works and our role in it. While new studies will undoubtedly reveal greater insights, we could wait for another hundred years and still not have all of the answers. A growing consensus of scientists suggest that we may not have that long."

"The idea was that if intelligent life ever found the football-sized probe, the binary language would tell them that we're a species that understands the way the universe works. In 1983, Pioneer 10 became the first artificial object from Earth to pass Pluto and leave our solar system. It was last heard from on January 22, 2003, when the sensors of the Deep Space Network picked up the final faint signal as the tiny craft hurtled deep into interstellar space."

"In other words, if it's likely that our species survives the things that threaten our future and has the interest or need to create a simulated world, then the technology that comes under such conditions will allow us to do so. This leads to the conclusion that the odds favor the idea that these things have already happened and that we're already living in a simulated universe."

"British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking suggests that we'll need to find another world to inhabit if the human species is to survive. During a 2006 press conference in Hong Kong, he stated: "We won't find anywhere as nice as Earth unless we go to another star system."8 While I certainly understand the thinking behind Hawking's view, and ultimately believe that human beings will be living on other worlds, I also feel that to develop the technology to do so, we'll have to answer the question posed in this book: What is the role of belief in our world?"

"With more than four hundred different species of bugs in your gut, the possibilities approach infinity. The bacteria in your intestine provide additional nutrients from metabolism of food. They protect you from harmful bacteria by suppressing their growth. And they stimulate the growth and development of your organ systems, the most important of which is your immune system. It's not easy to study the effects of diet on intestinal bacteria and then translate this into effects on specific diseases. We need more research to gain a fuller understanding of this relationship."
