(Natural News)
Recent figures from the Public Health England (PHE) revealed that 45 percent of adults over 16 years fail to do a 10-minute brisk walk at least once a month. The data also showed that more than six million adults aged 40 to 60 years fail to engage in brisk walking.

Health experts defined brisk walking as a pace of about three miles an hour, which would be enough to raise the body’s temperature and heart beat. “Brisk walking is moving like you are late and trying to get somewhere on time. It will raise your heart rate and make you feel a little warm. Including ten minutes of brisk walking into your daily routine is often the easiest way to get active and feel the improvement in your health,” PHE official Dr. Justin Varney said in a Daily Mail article.

According to the researchers, today’s British population are 20 percent less active compared with those in the 1960s. Likewise, the experts noted that an average person now walks 15 miles less per year that they did 20 years ago. The PHE also noted that a quarter of the total population only spends less than 30 minutes of exercise per week.

The federal agency also stressed that about 67 percent of adult men and 57 percent of adult women in the country are overweight. Nearly a quarter or 24 percent of these were considered obese, the PHE noted. According to the agency, this rate is a stark contrast to only 16 percent in the 1980s.

PHE officials cautioned that a sedentary lifestyle may increase the odds of developing cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. However, previous studies have shown that brisk walking for at least 10 minutes daily may reduce the odds of early death by up to 15 percent.

The U.K.’s National Health Services (NHS) currently recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate activity (such as gardening, swimming, cycling, or brisk walking) per week. The federal agency also suggests up to 75 minutes of rigorous physical activity such as running or playing sports each week.

Targeting national health risk through tailored campaign, app

As part of the PHE’s plan to address the nation’s increasingly sedentary profile, the agency has introduced its One You campaign meant to challenge sedentary middle-aged individuals to get up and walk briskly for at least 10 minutes a day.

The PHE has also launched its Active 10 app to go with the campaign. The app was designed to help users achieve their goals. Health care providers were slated to recommend the app to their patients to help increase their exercise levels.

“I know first hand that juggling the priorities of everyday life often means exercise takes a back seat. Walking to the shops instead of driving or going for a brisk 10-minute walk on your lunch break each day can add many healthy years to your life. The Active 10 app is a free and easy way to help anyone build more brisk walking into their daily routine,” PHE deputy medical director Dr. Jenny Harries told The Guardian online.

“We all know physical activity is good for your health but for the first time we’re seeing the effects that easily achievable changes can make. By walking just 10 continuous minutes at a brisk pace every day, an individual can reduce their risk of early death by 15 percent. They can also prevent or delay the onset of disability and further reduce their risk of serious health conditions, such as type-2 diabetes, heart disease, dementia, and some cancers,” said Professor Sir Muir Gray, a clinical adviser for the Active 10 app and the One You campaign.

The PHE also stressed that walking does not require specific skills, facilities or equipment. According to the agency, it remains to be more accessible and acceptable than any other forms of physical activity for many people.

A Bug Is Causing Caterpillars To Turn Into ‘Exploding Zombies’

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Wildlife experts are scratching their heads over a bug which is causing caterpillars to turn into “exploding zombies.” According to the Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside Wildlife Trust, skins of the insects which have been turned inside out have been found on Winmarleigh Moss, near Garstang.

The BBC reports that the baculovirus bugs propels caterpillars on a “death march” to the top of the plants. When it dies, the bug “bursts” out of them and moves on to find other victims. Dr. Chris Miller, a wildlife expert, described it as “gruesome — like a zombie horror film.”

Reportedly, Dr. Miller was conducting a butterfly survey on Winmarleigh Moss when he noticed the frightening sight. A caterpillar was hanging off the end of a branch of a small bush. He then spotted another hanging from a tall bald of grass. “Both were dead but otherwise intact,” he said.

After noticing “small scraps of caterpillar skin” on other branches, he knew something was off. He says research reveals that the baculovirus affects the way “zombie insects” respond to light. In turn, it makes them climb to high, dangerous places where they end up dying.

“It is really unusual seeing caterpillars high up as they can be eaten by birds,” said Dr. Miller. “This is a caterpillar of the oak eggar moth which eats heather and bilberry so it is normally hidden in the undergrowth, not at the top of plants.”

CDC sounds alarm over exploding diabetes epidemic impacting 100 million Americans … while food companies keep fattening Americans with processed food

Image: CDC sounds alarm over exploding diabetes epidemic impacting 100 million Americans … while food companies keep fattening Americans with processed food

(Natural News)
The figures in the latest National Diabetes Statistics Report, released bi-annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are alarming, to say the least: By 2015, 100 million people in the United States were battling either prediabetes or full-blown type 2 diabetes. That’s one in three Americans suffering with a life-threatening, but totally preventable lifestyle disease!

Over 84.1 million people have now been diagnosed with prediabetes, the precursor to diabetes, which, if not reversed, will inevitably result in diabetes within five years. A further 30.3 million Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, a 50 percent increase in a single decade. Diabetes is a serious, life-threatening condition.

The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation explains it this way:

“When you eat, your body turns food into sugars, or glucose. At that point, your pancreas is supposed to release insulin. Insulin serves as a ‘key’ to open your cells, to allow the glucose to enter — and allow you to use the glucose for energy. But with diabetes, this system does not work. Several major things can go wrong – causing the onset of diabetes.” [Related: Learn more about the prevention and treatment of diabetes at DiabetesScienceNews.com.]

Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more lives than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Its complications also make it the leading cause of stroke, heart failure, blindness, amputations and kidney failure. One American dies from this disease every three minutes.

The shocking fact, however, is that type 2 diabetes is a preventable, lifestyle-induced disease. It is often referred to as “adult-onset diabetes” because it rarely occurs in children (except those who are obese), and is directly linked to a sedentary lifestyle, poor food choices and being overweight.

Of course, the overweight couch potatoes who are diagnosed with diabetes must carry their share of responsibility for their diagnoses; however, they are certainly not the only ones to blame.

Doctors certainly bear a weighty responsibility when it comes to the explosive boom in diabetes cases in our country. For one thing, they very often fail to explain to their patients exactly how diabetes works, what causes it, and how simple diet and lifestyle changes can reverse it. Instead, they are quick to hand out prescriptions for pharmaceutical drugs like metformin which give their patients – who are actually ticking time bombs – a false sense of security by masking symptoms while doing nothing to get to their root causes.

Even when they do try to advise their patients about changes in nutrition, they base their information on outdated principles like increasing consumption of pasta and bread, when in fact these foods are like diabetic fuel. [Related: 62-year-old man reverses type 2 diabetes by cutting out pasta and bread.]

And then there is the greatest culprit of all: Big Food with its junk food and lies about what is and isn’t truly healthy.

A study by researchers from Washington University, published in the journal Cell Reports, found that eating fast food every day during pregnancy dramatically increases the diabetes risk of the next three generations in that family – irrespective of how healthy their diets may be. Yet, there is no warning issued to pregnant women to avoid toxic junk food.

A perfect example of the lies spread by the food industry is the diet drink debacle. Many health-conscious Americans obediently made the switch from regular soda to diet drinks after propaganda campaigns convinced them that this was a healthier alternative. Nothing could be further from the truth – and the soda companies know it!

A 2016 study by the Karolinska Institute in Sweden found that consuming just two artificially sweetened beverages each day doubles the risk of developing diabetes.

The good news is that prediabetes, and in certain cases even fully fledged type 2 diabetes, can be reversed with simple lifestyle changes, including losing weight, incorporating daily moderate exercise, cutting out processed carbohydrates like bread and pasta, and increasing consumption of non-GMO, organic fruit and veggies.

Child Sex Trafficking in the US is Exploding, Govt Admits They Aren’t Stopping It

traffickingtrafficking

A recent report on the number of sexually exploited children in Florida gives insight into a horrific world that is often ignored by the media, and that rarely holds millionaires, politicians and even local officials accountable for their involvement.

A report from the Florida legislature’s Office of Program Policy Analysis & Government Accountability concluded that the state’s Department of Children and Family (DCF) and its lead agencies “have not resolved issues related to serving commercially sexually exploited children.”

The report found that in 2016, 356 verified commercially sexually exploited child victims were identified, as opposed to 264 identified in 2015. It noted that many of the victims who were identified earlier were, “both children in child welfare dependency and those living in the community with family—have since been re-victimized, involved with the criminal justice system, or only attended school intermittently.”

“During 2016, DCF’s Florida Abuse Hotline received 2,013 reports alleging the CSE of children, which is a 57% increase over the 2015 reports. Child protective investigators investigated 1,386 (or 69%) of those reports. Counties with the highest number of CSE reports include Miami-Dade (248), Broward (232), Orange (150), and Hillsborough (144). DCF hotline staff did not refer cases for investigation if the allegation did not rise to the level of reasonable (74%), there were no means to locate the victim (11%), or the alleged perpetrator was not the child’s caregiver (8%). Of the reports that were referred for investigation, most came from DJJ, the Department of Corrections, or criminal justice personnel (20%) and law enforcement (15%).”

In 2016, the National Human Trafficking Hotline received reports of 7,572 human trafficking cases, which was a substantial increase from 5,544 cases in 2015 and 5,042 cases in 2014. Florida ranked third on the list with 550 cases, behind Texas with 670 cases and California with 1,323 cases.

Out of the 7,572 human trafficking cases reported in the United States in 2016, the majority or 5,551 were “sex trafficking” cases, and 2,387 of the reported victims were minors.

The report on child sex trafficking in Florida suggested that the increase in victims was due to the process DCF and the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) use to “select children to screen as well as the screening tool itself may limit accurate identification of CSE child victims.”

The report also noted that 62 percent of the children who were labeled as commercially sexually exported remained “in the community and are referred to voluntary, local services.” As a result, “no data is readily available on whether the children use these services.”

The Free Thought Project has provided extensive coverage of the sex trafficking epidemic in the U.S., especially in relation to minors who become victims after they are kidnapped from their homes and placed in foster care.

In April, two pastors who were foster care advocates were arrested for running a child sex ring in Ohio. The pastors, who had influence on their county’s Child Service’s Board of Trustees, were charged with “recruiting, enticing and transporting people the men knew were under 18 to engage in sex acts for pay.” The trafficking was ongoing for at least three years, and initially began with a 14-year-old girl.

In June, a lawsuit was filed in the case of a 5-year-old girl who was given to the leader of a child sex ring in Arizona. She was taken from her mother who was battling an addiction with substance abuse, and she was put in the custody of a pedophile who sexually abused her, tortured her, and ultimately left her fighting for her life.

The recent report from Florida is another reminder that child sex trafficking is a horrific element of the human trafficking epidemic that has been ongoing and increasing in the United States. While government involvement has always been an element, it has yet to put a stop to the increasing number of children who are subjected to life-altering abuse on a daily basis.
