You Can Volunteer To Cuddle Drug-Addicted Babies To Help Them Heal — Here’s How

BLuke Miller Truth Theory

Did you know? The amount of babies born addicted to opioids in the United States has tripled in the past 15 years, according to the CDC. Whether the mother took prescription pharmaceuticals for her own health or abused her and the baby’s body out of ignorance, it doesn’t change the fact that after birth, a drug-addicted infant needs plenty of treatment — including cuddling — to heal. Fortunately, it is now possible to snuggle babies as a volunteer in Neonatal Infant Care Units (NICUs) all across the U.S.

Cuddling might seem like an odd prescription for healing, but it’s proven to aid neonatal abstinence syndrome, which is basically when a child inherits the mother’s addiction while in the womb. The process of withdrawal, as you might know, is oftentimes excruciating. Sometimes, the comfort provided by a loving presence is the answer to saving a baby’s life.

New Study Reveals Cannabis May Make Chemotherapy More Effective - TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

The implications of this finding are huge.

Despite over 100 studies confirming that cannabis oil effectively treats cancer, the plant is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug at a Federal level in the United States and is prohibited elsewhere around the world. Based on new research, this is likely to change, as it has been revealed that cannabinoids — the active chemicals in cannabis — make chemotherapy more effective.

According to Science Daily, groundbreaking research conducted by St. George’s University in London has confirmed that cannabinoids are effective in killing leukemia cells. The data shows that cannabinoids are especially effective when paired when chemotherapy treatments.

Farmer Spends 16 Years Studying Law To Sue Chemical Firm 'Polluting His Land' - And Wins - TruthTheory

BLuke Miller Truth Theory

Wang Enlin a farmer living in the Yushutun village, China has spent over 16 years studying law to sue the chemical company that allegedly polluted his land.

According to reports from Chinese news site The People, a 2001 government document claimed the contaminated farmland ‘can not be used for a long time’ due to the companies error.

The company in question- Qihua Group have assets of over 2 billion Yen (Around $200 million) and are thought to have dumped hazardous waste into the village from 2001 – 2016, making it impossible for the community to farm their land.

They are also reported to have created 71-acres of wasteland contaminated with calcium carbide and a 478-acre pond full of liquid waste.

Mr Wang decided to pursue the legal knowledge required to take Qihua on after writing a letter in 2001, to the Land Resources Bureau of Qiqihar complaining about the pollution of his village.

He said that he was asked to produce evidence of the contamination when dealing with local officials:

In Less Than 5 Years, Ethical Lab-Grown Meat Will Be Available For Sale - TruthTheory

By Eden Marie Truth Theory

For those who eschew animal products – particularly meat and dairy – but understand the possible health benefits to be gained from eating foods rich in protein, a dietary conundrum is presented. Fortunately, lab-grown meat, which is promoted to be both cheaper and healthier than meat obtained from slaughterhouses, is only a handful of years away from being sold in stores.

While the concept of consuming faux meat products is nothing new, lab-grown “meat” which isn’t harvested from animals is. Unlike Tofurkey or other meat substitute products, lab-grown meat is, technically, tissue from an animal. However, it isn’t sourced from one because it is grown from a very small sample. In effect, it is deemed to be far more ethical. Additionally, the meat is said to be healthier than traditionally sourced beef (or turkey, chicken, etc…) because it is raised in a lab, therefore, won’t be contaminated with hormones or pesticides possibly obtained via ingestion.

The Benefits And Dangers Of Taking Psychedelics - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

Psychedelics are a great tool for communicating with alternate realities and getting to understand ourselves a little better, however they are no quick fix and can often leave you with more questions than answers.

Before I go any further I would just like to say that there are many different types of psychedelics, which have different effects and cautions that should be taken when using them- do your research before using any substance, even if it is not a psychedelic. There are many benefits of psychedelics, but there are also many dangers- in this article I would like to cover this from both perspectives.

Dissolution Of Conditioning

When you take psychedelics it often takes you out of the conditioned mind, giving you a view that is clear from your previous experience. Our conscious mind is the result of everything we experience in the world and no matter how hard we try to stay away from media, bad influences and experience, we can’t completely avoid these things. It can be a beautiful thing to see things as they are for the first time, and this is the effect psychedelics often have.

Diet Drinks TRIPLE Your Risk Of Stroke And Dementia, Study Finds - TruthTheory

By Eden Marie Truth Theory

To shed weight and appear trim, millions of people around the globe indulge in diet drinks which are predominantly sweetened with aspartame, an established neurotoxin. Though the effects of aspartame are widely known and keep some people from consuming “diet” beverages, only recently have researchers confirmed that sipping diet fizzy drinks daily increases one’s risk of developing dementia or having a stroke later on in life.

Scientists from Boston University studied almost 4,400 adults to determine the effects of drinking full sugar vs diet drinks, and concluded that adults who have one diet drink a day are three times more at risk to suffer a stroke or dementia. Reportedly, no connection was made between the sugary beverages and either of the illnesses, but the researchers don’t recommend those be ingested, either.

Plan An Adventure Or Become A Part Of Someone Else's Plan - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

Regardless of your beliefs spiritual, scientific or other we can all agree that for the human part of the experience we are going through we have an average of close to 67 years on planet earth. Without trying to sound cliche, life (as a human) is short! Picture this- it is thought the universe is 13.8 billion years old with humans (as we know them) being here for a mere 200,000 of those years. Our lives equate to 0.03% of human history 0.0000004% of this planet’s history- meaning if human history was a day, your life would equate to 4 minutes out of 1440 and 3 one thousandths of a second in our planet’s history. So I hope I am hitting home the point that life is indeed short!

The paradox is of course that life is pretty long, we have a lot of time in which we can get stuff done, and we well and truly have a choice. There is a world of opportunity there for anyone who would like to open up the box of adventure and if you don’t choose your path, you quickly become a pillar for someone else’s path.

The Dakota Access Pipeline Has Had Its First Leak Despite The Fact It Is Not Operational - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

The controversial pipeline leaked 84 gallons of oil in South Dakota.

Early last month the DAPL leaked 84 gallons of oil in South Dakota. This adds to the argument from the indigenous tribes that the pipeline is a danger to their water supply and needs to be further reviewed for environmental safety.

The incident which took place on April 4 spilled 84 gallons of oil, despite the fact that it is still not operational. The state’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DERN) shared a report on its searchable database, however they did not release the information to the public.

DERN spokesman Brian Walsh said that the spill was relatively small and the state doesn’t share information on spills unless they feel they are a threat to public health or water supplies.

He said “We realize Dakota Access gets a lot of attention. We also try to treat all of our spills in a consistent manner,” Walsh said. “We treated this as we would treat any other 84-gallon oil spill.”
