Journal Journal: It's good to be back from my missionary work. 1

It's hard to believe that it was about 10 months ago I took a sabbatical and went on life-saving work in Africa, Antarctica and the Amazon basin. I was part of a team of 14 from Chiropractors Without Borders .

This find organization travels the world with our drop tables and performs life-saving chiropractic treatments wherever needed. Natural disaster areas, poor areas of the world, you name it. We've even been learning Veterinarian Chiropractic.

Comment What this SHOULD be used for... (Score -1, Offtopic) 53

This is actually good science.

Chiropractic researchers and interested neurologists should use this technology to study the subtle, yet catastrophic, micro-subluxations which are a major cause of human suffering. It is a well known fact that if you do not receive regular chiropractic adjustments, the chances of you having health-damanging subluxations are nearly 100%.

D.D. Palmer trained the first Chiropractors to detect and eliminate such scourges. It's nice to see science catching up with Chiropractic circa 1895!

App Developer: Android Designed For Piracy 596

Following news this week of a game developer who turned the Android version of a game free because of piracy concerns, software developer Matt Gemmell has written a lengthy post explaining why he thinks Android apps are laboring under a broken business model. "People have to get paid. There has to be a revenue stream. You can’t reliably have that revenue stream if the platform itself and the damaged philosophy behind it actively sabotages commerce. If you want a platform to be commercially viable for third-party software developers, you have to lock it down. Just like in real life, closing the door and locking it helps make sure that your money remains yours. Bad behaviour has to be more difficult than good behaviour - and good behaviour means paying for your software." He also has some harsh arguments about some of the assumptions and philosophies underpinning the an industry built on an open platform. "Nerds like to say that people care about choice at that level. Nerds are wrong. Nerds care about choice, and nerds are such a tiny minority of people that nobody else much cares what the hell they think. Android is designed with far too much nerd philosophy, and open is gravy to those people because it’s synonymous with customization. ... Open is broken as a money-making platform model, unless you’re making the OS or the handsets. Most of us aren't doing that."

Comment "health care" = "disease management" (Score -1, Troll) 504

Higher health care spending leads to DEATH and DISEASE!

Our medical system is a sickness system designed to keep you needing constant infusions of BigPharme medicine and vaccines. How many "MDs" kill people every year? Probably ALL of them. Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, you name it. They are murdered by subscription-writing MDs who don't care about wellness!

I would love to see just $1 billion spent on proper research into Chiropractic care. We have the proof: millions of patients with pain-free backs, hearing restored, general health and wellness. But as the group-think goes "anectdotes are not evidence" Well, with just that drop in the bucket of money, we could PROVE the benefits.

The Basics for a Healthy Life:
- Eat well. Preferably an organic, vegan diet. Grow your own vegetables if you have the space.
- Get plenty of exercise. If you live in a city, look for a gym with a HEPA air filtration system. You don't want to be breathing heavily and inhaling the toxins of a big city.
- Avoid the Medical System. Once you're caught in the 'health system', you will die. Vaccines, "medicines", and other garbage your body doesn't need. Your body has Innate Knowledge and knows how to repair itself if given the chance.
- Receive regular Chiropractic adjustments. This will help with nervous system function, remove blockages/subluxations, and help with nerve impulse distribution.

Comment Less radiation, more calcium. (Score -1, Troll) 324

Hurray! The less people who want nuclear power, the better! People are learning on their own about the dangers without listening to the lies from the Power Industry's astroturfers.

What I would love to see is a way to make power from calcium. The world has huge amounts of calcium (limestone, etc.) Early rock samples of the planet have little calcium. As life evolved and creatures died, their skeletons slowly and continuously added to the amount of calcium. Much compressed into calcium carbonate, limestone, etc.

There has to be a way to reverse this trend or one day in the distant future Earth will be a calcified, lifeless sphere. Using calcium as a power source is a win-win solution: we help slow the process of planetary calcification and create power without radiation.

The current strategy of making power from radiation is sheer folly. Aside from the accidents and deaths that get covered up, There have been many reports of Chiropractic offices near nuclear plants as having more patients with more severe subluxations that the general population. The radiation that leaks out in the toxic steam cloud causes severe subluxation in the general population.

Comment Good, but not for the reasons I had hoped for. (Score -1, Flamebait) 323

Upon reading the headline, I was hoping it was because people were getting off their couches and becoming more active. Alas, that is not the case; Netflix is expanding their sedentary lifestyle to the UK and Ireland.

Folks, it's a measly $8/month for unlimited TV and movies. How enticing is that? You know what's even cheaper? GETTING OFF YOUR BUTTS AND MOVING! Instead of asking the family "What do you want to watch tonight?" ask "Where should we walk to tonight?"

Netflix should be taxed like tobacco and liquor: it's a destructive, disease causing force causing people to fall to pieces. Have a brutally painful subluxation from a 10 hour movie marathon? Sure, that can be fixed before it causes a life-threatening illness. It'll cost you more than the $8 you spend on Netflix. Minimum of $30/visit for probably 2-4 visits a week for at least a couple of weeks.

It's like an alcoholic or smoker having to pay for a liver or lung transplant. Just Say No to all the modern "entertainment delivery systems" that are designed to make you complacent, fat, and unhealthy. The system DOES NOT want you healthy! It wants you as a consumer of medical poisons until death. It wouldn't be suprising to discover that the BigPharma players are investors in things like liquor, tobacco and Netflix: those things deliver life-long pill-popping & insulin-shooting customers by the millions. The proper alternatives of eating well, being active, and receiving targetted chiropractic adjustments don't make them their billions in pain-delivered profits.

Submission + - Attempts to "Scientize" Alt-Med (keepchiropracticdrugless.org)

Dr.Bob,DC writes: "The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) is the agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education for accreditation of programs and institutions. Last year, the CCE made drastic changes to their Standards document which removed basic core chiropractic descriptors such as "vertebral subluxation" and "without drugs or surgery".

Removal of these key terms, especially “without drugs or surgery,” will allow for an extremist group within the profession to pursue the addition of prescriptive rights and surgical procedures. They have been working towards this for many years and wish to create a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine (DCM) program to teach these medical practices, circumventing the current necessary steps of separately receiving an MD, DO, or ND degree.

This reeks of back-room politicizing from the Pharmaceutical Industry."

Radical members of the Chiropractic community wish to turn the healing art of Chiropractic into a drug-pushing, Big Pharma controlled industry. Chiropractic would lose sight of its core values if this were to happen.

The proposed "solution" is even worse than the antibiotics it is intended to replace.

A bacteria modified to attack cancer cells needs only to have its "cancer-only" chromosome modified to "attack-all-cells" which would spell doom for the patient.

It's not as far-fetched as one would thing. Chromosomes are modified all the time. Radiation from cell phones, smoke detectors and nuclear reactors beat the tar out of your chromosomes 24/7. Even bananas are radioactive; NEVER EVER eat bananas lest you flood your system with subluxation-causing radiation.

There are a handful of things you need for optimal health (note that BigPharma toxins are not one of them):

1) Get plenty of exercise
2)Get plenty of sleep
3)Maintain a calorie restricted, high protein, low carbohydrate, organic, vegan diet
4) Get regular Chiropractic adjustments to keep your nervous system performing at its best
5) Meditate regularily
6)Stay Radiation Free 7) Never set foot in the Big Pharma controlled "medical system". One foot in the "MD's office" is one foot in your grave.
