Comment from Aikido Soul: The amino acid Taurine has been included for decades in treatment programs by specialist MDs who care for patients with toxic brain and central nervous system injury. I appreciate articles coming from the Life Extension Foundation, but purchase almost zero of its products because they too often use non-organic soy and corn as source material, which can come from GMO crops. Clean Taurine is easily found. (Sorry about the smilies which were inadvertently formed within the references).

It is very common for chem/pharm to pay trolls to inhabit sites that discuss toxic injury. I've been on many toxic injury exchanges where there were real chem/pharm trolls. That is real, not my imagination.
I agree that learning a musical instrument, or writing music, doing puzzles, a new language, etc., keeps the mind alert and able to function at a higher level. However, synthetic neurotoxins do actual physical damage to the brain, most often the hippocampus when it comes to pesticides. That kind of damage is irreversible.
And yet, the brain is very plastic and can alter its functioning so that other parts of the brain take up jobs formerly done by the damaged parts.

NASA recently released its global temperature data for the month of May, and it was 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit above the norm. The agency's data also revealed that 2015 has had the hottest five months of any year ever recorded. As of right now, 2015 is already hotter than last year, according to NASA; in fact, if it stays on the same track, it will be the hottest year ever recorded for the planet.

Bewildering, shocking, amazing, startling, and sometimes damned worrisome.
But mostly amazing.

According to Magnificent Cat Rescue:
Tiger Tim had a very special visitor on Friday: Nancy, his first foster.
Without Nancy, Tiger Tim would be dead by now, because we cannot rescue cats if we do not have foster homes to take them in.
We could not have pulled him from the ACC without Nancy.
We are always desperate for local fosters, but so are rescues all over the country.
Nancy has a message for all of you:
"To all the people offering Tiger Tim a home: Since there is only one Tiger Tim and he is still trying to get better, will you please consider fostering or adopting another cat in need? There are so many!!!
"Just think, had Tiger Tim not had a place to go to, his story would have never been told. He would have more than likely been put to sleep on a cold metal table.
"Since June is Adopt a Cat month, what better way to celebrate than to help a homeless kitty? Please consider it and if/when you do hashtag #TeamTigerTim.

Toby Morris created a brilliant cartoon that is a gut wrencher story about the concept of "privilege".
He places two individuals side by side, showing how financial security and benefits, or the lack of it, affects them even if they come from households that love and support them, leading to two completely different outcomes.
