Some types of cayenne pepper may come with an unhealthy dose of phthalates.
New study shows that even organic diets can contain surprising concentrations of the endocrine-disrupting chemicals
By Summit Voice
FRISCO — Avoiding plastic and personal care products known to include endocrine-disrupting BPAs may not be enough to limit exposure to the toxic chemicals, according to University of Washington researchers who recently published a study that illustrates some surprising BPA pathways in the food chain.
Based on the findings, the researchers concluded that people may be exposed to these chemicals in their diets, even if their meals are organic and foods are prepared, cooked and stored in non-plastic containers. And children may be most vulnerable, they said.
Phthalates and bisphenol A (BPA) are synthetic endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Previous studies have linked prenatal exposure to phthalates to abnormalities in the male reproductive system. Associations have also been shown between fetal exposure to BPA and hyperactivity, anxiety, and depression in girls.

CIA Executive Director Buzzy Krongard managed firm that handled PUT options on United Airline Stock
Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed -- the firm used to place the put options on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency.
Until 1997 A.B. Buzzy Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown. A.B. Brown was acquired by Bankers...
The communist manifesto2001-07-22 20:20:32 by inevitable
A spectre is haunting Europe -- the spectre of communism. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Tsar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radicals and German police-spies.
Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as communistic by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of communism, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?
Two things result from this fact:
I. Communism is already acknowledged by all European powers to be itself a power.
II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this...

The residual effects of the Enron (ENE) debacle are slowly, but surely, beginning to PERMEATE the investment landscape. In many instances it is hard to know whether the secondary problems are critically severe, or just a case of paranoid investors overreacting to ghosts. In 1997, ENE was a rather ordinary gas distribution company trading at $20/share. In the 1998-2000 period, the stock rocketed to nearly $85/share, because of celebrious views about their on-line commodity trading capabilities, an 18,000-mile fiber-optic cable and ultimately, the perceived 'rewards' from the California electricity crisis. Management gradually succumbed to the temptation to artificially inflate earnings with artful 'financial engineering' techniques and, all the while, they piled up debt and preferred...
