Foods that suppress iodine uptake

Goitrogenic drugs and chemicals

Chemicals that have been shown to have goitrogenic effects include:

* Sulfadimethoxine, propylthiouracil, potassium perchlorate, and iopanoic acid.[1]
* Some oxazolidines such as goitrin.[2]
* Thiocyanate overload in Central Africa, especially if also in conjunction with selenium deficiency.[3] Reliance on cassava as a carbohydrate provides a source of thiocyanate in some areas.[4]
* Ions such as thiocyanate and perchlorate decrease iodide uptake by competitive inhibition and, as a consequence of reduced thyroxine and triiodothyronine secretion by the gland, cause an increased release of thyrotropin (by reduced negative feedback), which then stimulates the gland.
* Amiodarone inhibits peripheral conversion of thyroxine to triiodothyronine; also interferes with thyroid hormone action.
* Lithium inhibits thyroid hormone release.
* Phenobarbitone, phenytoin, carbamazepine, rifampin induce metabolic degradation of T3 and T4.

Goitrogenic foods

Certain raw foods (cooking inactivates the goitrogens) have been identified as lightly goitrogenic. These foods include:

* cassava
* Soybeans (and soybean products such as tofu, soybean oil, soy flour, soy lecithin)
* Pine nuts
* Peanuts
* Millet
* Strawberries
* Pears
* Peaches
* Spinach
* Bamboo shoots
* Sweet Potatoes
* Vegetables in the genus Brassica [5]

Thyroid hyperplasia has been demonstrated in mice:[6]

Despite being generally a stimulant, caffeine (examples: coffee, tea, cola, chocolate) acts on thyroid function as a suppressant.[7] Indeed some studies on rats suggest that excess caffeine in conjunction with a lack of iodine may promote the formation of thyroid cancers.[8]

Also, if you are still eating white bread made with bleached flour... stop doing it! The bromine used in the bleaching process can be taken up into the thyroid and cause dysfunction. Not to mention your body will absorb all that tasty radioactive iodine to replace the bromine you acquired from that bread you thought was good for you.

U.S. patent application Aluminum soap demisting agent in jet fuel

This application is related to copending U.S. patent application Ser. No. 475,688 filed June 3, 1974.


1. Field of the Invention.

This invention relates to improved jet fuels. More particularly, this invention relates to compositions of matter comprising a mixture of a jet fuel and an aluminum di-acid soap of a saturated carboxylic acid having from 8 to 20 carbon atoms.

2. Description of the Prior Art.

When an airplane crashes or is forced to crash land or subjected to various other impulsive mishaps, its fuel tanks are often punctured or ruptured. When this happens, fuel from within the tanks spread into the atmosphere. Much of the fuel isin the form of a fine spray or mist. The tiny mist droplets are, because of their extremely large surface area, easily ignitable. If ignition occurs, a large, spreading fireball results.

It would be advantageous if the fuel were such that fine mist droplets were prevented from forming in the case of a fuel tank puncture or rupture mishap. That is, it would be advantageous if the viscosity were such that the fuel spread wasminimized and, should aspiration occur, relatively large drops rather than small mist droplets would form.

In the past, various materials have been added to jet fuels to increase viscosities. Polyisobutylene, polyisoprene, copolymers of ethylene acetate and vinyl acetate and various acrylic polymers and copolymers have been experimented with asdemisting agents. These materials have been added to the fuel in amounts varying from 0.1 to 3 percent of the total weight of the composition.

The prior art materials have had certain disadvantages associated with them. First, their demisting properties, i.e., their ability to make the viscosity of the fuel such that fine mists do not form when mishaps occur, have been detrimental toignition and combustion properties in engines. When the "demisted" fuel is injected into an engine for burning, the fuel is in the form of large drops. This makes ignition in the engine difficult. Ignition is particularly difficult during cold startsand after flameouts. Second, the previously tested materials tend to degrade when subjected to shear forces when the fuel is pumped. Single bond rupture of these very high molecular weight polymer chains causes very sharp reductions in the viscositycausing the fuel to lose its demisted quality. Third, occasions arise in maintenance of aircraft, when it is desirable to remove the fuel from the tanks. Fuels thickened with state of the art polymeric thickeners are difficult to remove and completelydrain from the aircraft (about 10% of the fuel remains as hold up).


It has now been found that certain aluminum soaps can be used as demisting agents in jet fuels. It has further been found that if certain amines are pumped into fuel lines carrying fuel which contains the aluminum soaps, the thickening(demisting) effect of the soaps is destroyed and the fuel, upon being injected into the engine by the fuel injectors, is injected as a fine mist.


Leonard Cohen, in U.S. Pat. No. 2,741,629, describes the preparation of an aluminum di-acid soap of mixed iso-octanoic acids. This soap is particularly useful in the practice of this invention. It is prepared by reacting mixed iso-octanoicacids with sodium hydroxide to form the sodium salt of the acids and water and then reacting the sodium salt with more sodium hydroxide and aluminum sulfate to form the soap. The soap comes out of the reaction mixture as a precipitate and is easilyrecovered.

Other aluminum di-acid soaps may be used in the practice of this invention. Any of those made from saturated carboxylic acids having from about 8 to about 20 carbon atoms are suitable. They can all be prepared by the method described by Cohen.

In the practice of this invention, either one or a mixture of two or more of the above-described aluminum soaps are added to jet fuel such as JP-4, JP-5, or Jet-A. The military jet fuels, JP-4 and JP-5 are described in Military SpecificationMIL-T-5624H. The civilian jet fuels such as Jet A and others are described in the American Society for Testing and Materials specification D 1655-74. An addition of from 0.1 to 1.0 weight percent of the total fuel is preferred. Such an additionincreases the viscosity of the fuel to a point where relatively large drops rather then fine mist droplets will form if a fuel tank containing the fuel is accidently punctured or ruptured. On the other hand, the viscosity of the fuel is still low enoughto permit the fuel to be pumped from existing, in-use fuel tanks through fuel lines.

Fuel which has had its viscosity increased by an addition of aluminum soaps according to this invention can be used as is with in-use fuel injectors. However, it is preferable to destroy the soaps in the fuel lines just before it enters theinjectors. To do this, one can inject a degelling agent selected from the group consisting of methyl amine, ethyl amine, n-propyl amine, iso-propyl amine, the primary butyl amines and the primary pentyl amines into the fuel line. Any of these amineswill destroy the aluminum soaps allowing the fuel to pass into and through the injectors as though it had never had a demisting agent added. The amines should be added to a fuel line at a rate which provides from about 0.001 to 0.005 gram of amine forevery gram of fuel passing the point of injection. It is preferable, although not necessary, to inject the amine into the fuel line at a point just prior to where the fuel leaves the line and enters the engine injector. Copending U.S. patentapplication Ser. No. 475,688 filed June 3, 1974 describes a method for degelling fuel prior to injecting it into a jet engine.

styles of distorted thinking!

1. Filtering: You take the negative details and magnify them, while filtering out all positive aspects of a situation. A single detail may be picked out, and the whole event becomes colored by this detail. When you pull negative things out of context, isolated from all the good experiences around you, you make them larger and more awful than they really are.

2. Polarized Thinking: The hallmark of this distortion is an insistence on dichotomous choices. Things are black or white, good or bad. You tend to perceive everything at the extremes, with very little room for a middle ground. The greatest danger in polarized thinking is its impact on how you judge yourself. For example-You have to be perfect or you're a failure.

3. Overgeneralization: You come to a general conclusion based on a single incident or piece of evidence. If something bad happens once, you expect it to happen over and over again. 'Always' and 'never' are cues that this style of thinking is being utilized. This distortion can lead to a restricted life, as you avoid future failures based on the single incident or event.

4. Mind Reading: Without their saying so, you know what people are feeling and why they act the way they do. In particular, you are able to divine how people are feeling toward you. Mind reading depends on a process called projection. You imagine that people feel the same way you do and react to things the same way you do. Therefore, you don't watch or listen carefully enough to notice that they are actually different. Mind readers jump to conclusions that are true for them, without checking whether they are true for the other person.

5. Catastrophizing: You expect disaster. You notice or hear about a problem and start "what if's." What if that happens to me? What if tragedy strikes? There are no limits to a really fertile catastrophic imagination. An underlying catalyst for this style of thinking is that you do not trust in yourself and your capacity to adapt to change.

6. Personalization: This is the tendency to relate everything around you to yourself. For example, thinking that everything people do or say is some kind of reaction to you. You also compare yourself to others, trying to determine who's smarter, better looking, etc. The underlying assumption is that your worth is in question. You are therefore continually forced to test your value as a person by measuring yourself against others. If you come out better, you get a moment's relief. If you come up short, you feel diminished. The basic thinking error is that you interpret each experience, each conversation, each look as a clue to your worth and value.

7. Control Fallacies: There are two ways you can distort your sense of power and control. If you feel externally controlled, you see yourself as helpless, a victim of fate. The fallacy of internal control has you responsible for the pain and happiness of everyone around you. Feeling externally controlled keeps you stuck. You don't believe you can really affect the basic shape of your life, let alone make any difference in the world. The truth of the matter is that we are constantly making decisions, and that every decision affects our lives. On the other hand, the fallacy of internal control leaves you exhausted as you attempt to fill the needs of everyone around you, and feel responsible in doing so (and guilty when you cannot).

8. Fallacy of Fairness: You feel resentful because you think you know what's fair, but other people won't agree with you. Fairness is so conveniently defined, so temptingly self-serving, that each person gets locked into his or her own point of view. It is tempting to make assumptions about how things would change if people were only fair or really valued you. But the other person hardly ever sees it that way, and you end up causing yourself a lot of pain and an ever-growing resentment.

9. Blaming: You hold other people responsible for your pain, or take the other tack and blame yourself for every problem. Blaming often involves making someone else responsible for choices and decisions that are actually our own responsibility. In blame systems, you deny your right (and responsibility) to assert your needs, say no, or go elsewhere for what you want.

10. Shoulds: You have a list of ironclad rules about how you and other people should act. People who break the rules anger you, and you feel guilty if you violate the rules. The rules are right and indisputable and, as a result, you are often in the position of judging and finding fault (in yourself and in others). Cue words indicating the presence of this distortion are should, ought, and must.

11. Emotional Reasoning: You believe that what you feel must be true-automatically. If you feel stupid or boring, then you must be stupid and boring. If you feel guilty, then you must have done something wrong. The problem with emotional reasoning is that our emotions interact and correlate with our thinking process. Therefore, if you have distorted thoughts and beliefs, your emotions will reflect these distortions.

12. Fallacy of Change: You expect that other people will change to suit you if you just pressure or cajole them enough. You need to change people because your hopes for happiness seem to depend entirely on them. The truth is the only person you can really control or have much hope of changing is yourself. The underlying assumption of this thinking style is that your happiness depends on the actions of others. Your happiness actually depends on the thousands of large and small choices you make in your life.

13. Global Labeling: You generalize one or two qualities (in yourself or others) into a negative global judgment. Global labeling ignores all contrary evidence, creating a view of the world that can be stereotyped and one-dimensional. Labeling yourself can have a negative and insidious impact upon your self-esteem; while labeling others can lead to snap-judgments, relationship problems, and prejudice.

14. Being Right: You feel continually on trial to prove that your opinions and actions are correct. Being wrong is unthinkable and you will go to any length to demonstrate your rightness. Having to be 'right' often makes you hard of hearing. You aren't interested in the possible veracity of a differing opinion, only in defending your own. Being right becomes more important than an honest and caring relationship.

15. Heaven's Reward Fallacy: You expect all your sacrifice and self-denial to pay off, as if there were someone keeping score. You fell bitter when the reward doesn't come as expected. The problem is that while you are always doing the 'right thing,' if your heart really isn't in it, you are physically and emotionally depleting yourself.

*FromThoughts & Feelingsby McKay, Davis, & Fanning. New Harbinger, 1981. These styles of thinking (or cognitive distortions) were gleaned from the work of several authors, including Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, and David Burns, among others.

Mick the Ascended master addresses the world

Being Human???

I’ve always wondered that if we evolved from lesser species why we don't see evidence of it still happening today. After all if we are indeed top of the evolutionary ladder then it stands to reason that our closes cousins should show signs of evolving into humans as well. As there habitat reduces and they have to adapt to the ever changing environment and along with the close quarters of human civilization surly they would start to mirror our behaviour and start more and more to become like us. But then why would our closet cousins exists at all surely they being here before us and faced with the environmental changes of the past would have put them all on the same path to becoming human. Why would any of them still be around surely they would have all evolved. There is of course the possibility as is evident in the Sumerian belief system that we came about due to a advance race creating us by mixing their DNA with the most advance species on this planet at that time to create us. That would help to explain why there are still some of our closest cousins left as only so many would have had the new altered DNA.

If this was the case wouldn’t we have a native Earth species that was naturally evolving at the proper pace and us steam rolling ahead. At some point though our not so modified cousin would start to catch up, they would evolve unaided apart from from they have witnessed of us into the natural earth Humanoid and not some Hodge podge variety that we are today. Is It then maybe we will get a chance to see what parts of us have been inherited from elsewhere. Just a thought!

You are powerful even if you don’t feel it or realise it! Why?

Whatever stage of life you might be at  i feel it is important to remember how you became into being in the first place. We are here due to the choices made by our ancestors. Without the choices made by who has gone before any present generation would not exist. By recognising this fact hopefully any future choices you make will be done so with more careful thought. Consider this; to create you it has taking two people making choices regardless of whether they are still around. Their efforts have brought you to this moment in time. Regardless of how you might feel about your life at present it would be selfish not to appreciate the effort many have taken to allow you to exist in the first place. Your ancestors have probably survived wars, famine, droughts and any number of bad events but through it all your family line still exists to this day. Even if you yourself is not continuing your family i expect you have a relative or have a partner who has a relative that is. If this is the case it is it is only right that you take a interest and help them towards their future. Would you really want to all that past effort of bringing you to where you are now to be wasted without passing something of what you have learned on to someone who could use it?
You could do nothing but what a waste of thousands of years of effort by people fighting to survive long enough to bring the next generation into being.

Be aware watch the news, question it, research it embrace modern culture don’t just open yourself up to observe the bad things going on take a interest in the new things coming to light. Learn about art listen to modern music all this provide an insight into the times! a lot of the best ideas come from creative inspiration. Observing the current new art gives insights to possible events and helps you to make choices that you might have to make in the future. Not pushing yourself and exploring new things will leave you in a cycle of routine that will never expand beyond what has gone before. You will be left reflecting on the past with inability to function in a world that has grown up around you, which I’m afraid will just leave you a burden for someone else to carry.

If you personally feel you don’t have a purpose or nothing to work towards give meaning to your life by aiding a relative to achieve theirs. From all the current problems facing the world today i think by taking this small positive action will go a long way to improve things. Wake up to the fact that you are the end of a very long line of people who help build the world around you today and it’s your responsibility to build on it for the better.

Live healthier lives if you keep eating the crap they will keep making it, make informed choices on what you eat. Exorcise preferable in the countryside jogging down traffic crammed road for example will do nothing apart from pollute your body quicker with toxins from the fumes. If you don’t exorcise fine just remember doctors are able to keep you alive far longer with drugs. You will become dependent and reliant on other people and you will probably end up swearing because you dropped the remote and can’t bend over to get it.

You are powerful even if you don’t feel it or realise it! Why? Because it has taken thousands if not millions of years to make you! If a average life span up until now was around 70 years of age that means its likely that more people than the population of your country maybe even the world have made chocies and aided in the making of you, So please please don’t let all that effort go to waste!

Bus shelter quintessential village life

Parks, Activity centres & sport halls are all a pointless waste of council tax payer’s money. Instead all a Village needs is a bus shelter, two if the budget allows one at each end of a village. A well place and well built bus shelter dose wonders for the bonding of a community in a village along with also aiding in increasing village population. I expect this is one of the reasons a third shelter was never put in place due to the risk the Village might end up being reclassified as a town.  Sadly a new breed seems to be taking over the nearest Bus shelter to myself; in fact it may even be an entirely new species!  They are certainly nocturnal, Language skills don’t seem to be fully developed yet but they do seem to communicate quite well with hand signals.
Mating rituals can often be seen in and around the bushes along with a particular favourite spot the roundabout, much to the shock of many late night car drivers. If your headlights do happen to fall upon a prancing male or a couple in the throes of courtship just dip your head lights and take the roundabout at a slightly wider angel than you would normally  under no circumstances slow down or use your horn, this can sometimes provoke a flurry of hand gestures and a sight you wouldn't want your passengers to see.

Please drive carefully through our Village!

On New Year's Eve in Arkansas, thousands of the same species were found, followed by the discovery of around 100,000 dead fish in a river about a hundred miles away.

Just days ago, an estimated 500 small birds, mostly blackbirds, fell out of the sky in Louisiana.

50 jackdaws had been found dead on a street in Sweden, and other unexplained mass fish deaths have occurred recently in Brazil and New Zealand.
