Michigan State University researchers have shown that sunflower seeds are frequently contaminated with a toxin produced by molds and pose an increased health risk in many low-income countries worldwide.
In the current issue of PLoS ONE, the team of scientists documented frequent occurrence of aflatoxin – a toxin produced by Aspergillus molds that commonly infect corn, peanuts, pistachios and almonds – in sunflower seeds and their products. This is one of the first studies to associate aflatoxin contamination with sunflower seeds. Continue reading

World Events and the Bible
WEB Notes: In part, this is what Jack Ma was talking about and on another level this is the effect of 94 million Americans not being a part of the labor force. Since 2008 nothing has improved. The banks have been propped up by artificially low interest rates and those banks lend money to you at artificially low rates. When the Federal Reserve cranks back up the rates many will no longer be able to afford what they purchased on credit and that is going to be a bad day for the world, but a planned one by Satan’s children. But hey, those not so “official” unemployment numbers improved so I guess this news does not matter…

WEB Notes: History is always changed by those with the pen. This is not a symbol of hate, though that is all most people think anymore when they see that flag. Those in control of the media have effectively changed history so we see that flag in a negative light and remove it from our minds like they do with so many things.
Workers in New Orleans removed the first of four prominent Confederate monuments Monday morning, becoming the latest Southern institution to sever itself from symbols viewed by many as a representation of racism and white supremacy. Continue reading
The Great Recession
Nowhere has Donald Trump matched up with the original story of the Trojan horse more than in his overtures of peace, instead of military conflict. Nowhere has Trump changed more than in these same issues. Candidate Trump frequently persuaded his supporters to believe he would build more peaceful and cooperative relations with Russia and ridiculed the regime-change efforts of Hillary’s warmongering ways. After he was wheeled inside the Washington city gates, however, he opened up with overnight military attacks around the world and, in the same week, declared in the solitary point of harmony he could find with Putin that Russian relations had become worse during his first hundred days than they have ever been.
