“The human body is the universe in miniature. That which cannot be found in the body, is not to be found in the universe. Hence the philosopher’s formula, that the universe within, reflects the universe without. It follows therefore, that if our knowledge of our own body could be perfect, we would know the universe.” — Mahatma Gandhi

Despite Severe Drought Some Farmers Still Have Products to Sell But No Place

Posted: Sat, Aug 20, 2011
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

As Texas experiences one of the most costly droughts in more than a century, farmers across the state have been hit with record losses as pasture land has burned up under exceptional drought conditions. Texas farmers have been forced to quickly sell their cattle to feedlots, vegetable crops have dried up in the fields and many farmers markets have closed leaving some farmers with no place to sell their products.

The drought has greatly affected many of the East Texas farmers who also participate in the Historic Longview Farmers Market. Many went to great lengths to grow larger crops, produce more products and buy more chickens in order to participate in the market this year. The Historic Longview Farmers Market has had to temporarily close due to the drought but plans to reopen in the fall pending a break from the extreme weather conditions. The market's closure has left some of the vendors, who do not grow vegetables, without an avenue to sell their products.

New Autism Research Indicates Environmental Factors as Cause

Posted: Tue, Aug 2, 2011

New scientific research found that environmental factors increase children's susceptibility to developing autism more than genetics.

The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Institute for Human Genetics and Stanford University teamed together to lead one of the largest genetic research studies conducted to date on sets of twins to uncover genetic components of autism. Additional research was contributed by Kaiser Permanente, University of California Davis, the Autism Genetic Research Exchange and the California Department of Health.

The research study, which was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and by Autism Speaks, found that environmental factors represented more than half of a child's susceptibility for developing autism. In the most severe cases of autism, environmental factors represented 55% and even higher at 58% as a cause of broad spectrum disorders. Genetics represented (Read Full Article)

The World's First Breastfeeding Baby Doll Comes to the US

Posted: Mon, Aug 1, 2011
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

I received an email today from my younger brother who wrote to say that my four-year-old niece is so completely fascinated by her new baby brother that she is even trying to breastfeed her monkey. I then realized that there is a need for The Breast Milk Baby.

Parents are the primary role models for their children. Their behavior is monitored ever so closely by their kids who often at a young age will confess that they want to grow up to be just like their mommy or daddy. Pretending to be parents is part of play that eventually leads to adult behavior so it is only natural for a child who views her mother breastfeeding a younger sibling to try to emulate breastfeeding.

The Breast Milk Baby is a new doll that comes with a halter for the child to wear that has two flowers on it to represent breasts. When the doll is placed near the flowers, (Read Full Article)
