… Children with autism often experience gastrointestinal (GI) problems. These problems include diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, bloating, and nausea, and they usually last for months. Researchers noticed that children who suffer from these problems also display higher anxiety and sensory over-responsiveness. In a study published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, researchers reported that symptoms of autism contributed uniquely to the prediction of GI problems in logistic regression analyses. This suggests that behaviors associated with autism and GI problems may be interrelated and have common underlying mechanisms.
A different team of researchers used a similar mouse model and investigated neurodevelopmental disorders – particularly autism – caused by maternal obesity. They found that maternal obesity alters the gut microbial ecology of their offspring, and this shift negatively impacts their offspring’s behavior. However, introduction of Lactobacillus reuteri – a probiotic bacterium commonly found in meat and dairy products – to the offspring’s diet restored balance in their gut microbiota and oxytocin levels. This significantly improved behavioral abnormalities in the animals associated with neurodevelopmental disoders. …
Adults who had close contact with natural spaces during their childhood could have a better mental health than those who had less contact, according to a new study by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), an institution supported by “la Caixa”, involving four European cities.
Exposure to natural outdoor environments has been associated with several health benefits, including a better cognitive development and better mental and physical health. However, few studies have explored the impact of childhood exposure to natural environments on mental health and vitality in adulthood. Furthermore, studies have more frequently considered green spaces (gardens, forests, urban parks) than blue spaces (canals, ponds, creeks, rivers, lakes, beaches, etc.).
This study, published in the International Journal of Environment Research and Public Health, was performed within the framework of the PHENOTYPE project with data from almost 3,600 adults from Barcelona (Spain), Doetinchem (Netherlands), Kaunas (Lithuania) and Stoke-on-Trent (United Kingdom)….
Here we go again with a claim that seems to surface every Spring: the US says it is looking into allegations the Syrian government has used chemical weapons as it continues an offensive against jihadists in northwest Syria.
Just as in prior incidents, it appears the sole originator of the claim is al-Qaeda in Syria, currently battling it out with pro-Assad forces near Idlib. And like with prior chemical attack allegations, it comes at a moment the jihadists are fast losing ground in the area. …
The CIA’s decades-long deliberate cultivation of trauma and radical militancy in the middle east has served a number of strategic purposes. Initially this socio-religious weapon was aimed at the soviet union but apparently it was never intended to end there. http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/04/the-muslim-weapon/
Like all tyrants, the puppet masters who control western foreign policy are perpetually utilizing divide-and-conquer tactics as a means of domination, but sometimes targeted populations are too educated or culturally homogeneous for standard propaganda techniques to provide the necessary level of control and harvesting. In such cases genocide is sometimes utilized (cambodia for instance http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/06/pilger-the-long-secret-alliance-uncle-sam-and-pol-pot/ ) but such blunt instruments tend to create “collateral damage” which can hinder optimal labor harvesting and cultural engineering in the long run .
Although financially orchestrated mass starvation is in the works for the industrially depleted west, it seems the importation of culturally incompatible populations is also an important strategy for the last frontier of planetary domination. Radical muslims, whose histories under the boot of western financial and military predation predisposes them to hate all things western (including the clueless middle classes of the west who have no idea what their governments have been doing in their name) fit this requirement to a T. http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2018/07/cultural-engineering-in-sweden/
The importation of these traumatized and brainwashed victims of western foreign policy opens a new front in the money-changers’ war on the planet. The war is finally coming home and we might as well admit it. After all, we paid for it.
Anyway, listening to Alex can sometimes be difficult for an number of reasons, but his sources in government and the military are pretty much unparalleled. Despite his blind spots, he’s well worth a listen.
