He was cool with it and asked to read more of that stuff you just banged on about'. <a href=''>I</a> gave him the very rough draft of this article. <a href=''>When</a> he was done, I asked if he found it too dry, too confronting. <a href=''>Right</a> then. <a href=''>We</a> are communal beings. <a href=''>We</a> need to belong to a tribe to survive and thrive. <a href=''>Yet</a> we are also inherently selfish. <a href=''>Contrary</a> to the catchy milk-mustache campaign says Dr Walter Willett, Chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard's School of Public Health, dairy products aren't the best way to get plenty of calcium. <a href=''>However</a> great or small each of those risks might be, consumers deserve to know, so they can make truly informed decisions about what's right for them. <a href=''>This</a> article examines how cow's milk might contribute to several human diseases and negative health effects. <a href=''>Stay</a> up late any night of the week and watch a bit of cable television and you're bound to see one of the ubiquitous infomercials for the latest solution to acne, a problem that affects at least forty million Americans. <a href=''>Conventional</a> treatments include both topical and oral antibiotics, salicylic acid, sulfur preparations, azelaic acid, and birth control pills. <a href=''>Yet</a> some of the current medications have unwanted side effects. <a href=''>For</a> example, some people cannot tolerate benzoyl peroxide, the active ingredient in most over-the-counter products; <a href=''>Prescription</a> antibiotics, another course taken by many, are very helpful in eliminating the bacteria that grows in blemishes, but also indiscriminately kill off healthful bacteria in the intestines, bacteria that are critical to the proper assimilation of foods and their nutrients, including those that protect against cancer, and that help keep intestinal yeasts in check. <a href=''>When</a> good bacteria are diminished, bad opportunistic bacteria such as Pseudomonas, Clostridium, and Klebsiella take their place and, it has been proposed, may increase the risk of cancer. <a href=''>There</a> are other non-antimicrobial drugs shown to be helpful for acne yet they too have side effects, which are sometimes quite severe. <a href=''>Since</a> my mind thought in pictures anyway, I just got better at creating more empowering images that made me feel better about myself and what I was about to do. <a href=''>The</a> more detailed and clear my visualizing became, the better my performance was. <a href=''>Not</a> only did I know the outcome I wanted, but I felt motivated to do what was necessary to succeed--and confident that it would happen. <br /><br /><a href=''>When</a> I look into the future, it's so bright it burns my eyes. <a href=''>Emmy</a> Award-winning host of The Oprah Winfrey Show, <a href=''>Here's</a> the best news of all: Visualizing is not only powerful, it's simple and 100% free! <a href=''>All</a> you have to do is close your eyes and see your goals as already complete. <a href=''>If</a> your goal is to be the lead singer in a successful band, then close your eyes and imagine you're on stage in front of thousands of energetic people. <a href=''>If</a> your goal is to score five shots in the league finals, then see the court in your head. <a href=''>Imagine</a> yourself scoring the goals flawlessly. <a href=''>And</a> we tend to veer towards rampant self-interest if given a fifth of a rampant chance. <a href=''>Albeit</a> to survive and thrive. <a href=''>So</a> we live to an interesting evolutionary tension. <a href=''>Or</a> paradox. <a href=''>But</a> being the smart mammals that we are, we've found ways to traverse this paradox. <a href=''>Throughout</a> our evolution we have put in place structures to keep our individualism in check. <a href=''>We</a> invented wonderful myths and mores, helpful religions and political doctrines, to encourage kindness and generosity - via a bunch of moral codes - so that we didn't destroy the community and the fabric of our culture and immediate tribe. <a href=''>Gods</a> and heroes steered us from wrong to right by example. <a href=''>Spiritual</a> leaders - Buddha, Jesus, Lao Tzu, Mohammed - wove a code of behaviour through parable and commandment. <a href=''>Religion</a> told us to not kill each other and applied basic lifestyle edicts, such as observing a Sabbath. <a href=''>One</a> of the best known, isotretinoin (marketed under the brand name Roaccutane), used for severe acne, has FDA warnings as it has been known to increase the user's risk of depression, violent and aggressive behaviors, and even birth defects. <a href=''>To</a> begin with, a genetic predisposition certainly plays a role in one's risk of developing acne. <a href=''>So</a> does stress and excessive sweating. <br /><br /><a href=''>Use</a> of certain medications, such as corticosteroids and oral contraceptives, exposure to dioxin (a regular contaminant of dairy products), or Cushing's syndrome or polycystic ovary syndrome may cause or exacerbate the condition. <a href=''>As</a> with many of the chronic degenerative diseases that plague the West, acne, the scourge of up to 85 percent of adolescents (and many adults) is not nearly as common in parts of the world where the Western diet has not taken hold. <a href=''>While</a> people have made anecdotal associations with certain foods, including dairy products, for years, one dermatologist took the connection more seriously. <a href=''>Dr</a> Jerome K. <a href=''>Fisher</a> of Southern California spent a decade studying 1,088 of his own patients in an attempt to determine what stimulated their acne. <a href=''>His</a> conclusion, which he presented to the American Dermatological Association in 1965 in a paper entitled Acne Vulgaris: A Study of One Thousand Cases, was that it was the milk in their diet. <a href=''>Compared</a> to the general population, those suffering from acne drank up to four times the amount of milk, as much as four quarts per day. <a href=''>And</a> about that college you've dreamed of going to . <a href=''>What</a> does your classroom look like? <a href=''>What</a> does the landscape look like? <a href=''>What</a> is the weather like? <a href=''>What</a> does your report card look like? <a href=''>How</a> many friends will you have? <a href=''>Imagine</a> as many details as possible. <a href=''>Remember:</a> It's simple, it's powerful, and it's free. <a href=''>Make</a> the images as clear and as bright as possible. <a href=''>This</a> goes for any goal you make. <a href=''>An</a> enforced day of rest protected us, gave us space to connect with each other, ourselves, with life and our spiritual core. <a href=''>Shops</a> stayed shut on Sunday and half of Saturday. <a href=''>We</a> also had trade unions, human resource departments, charities and community associations that enforced our collective moral code. <br /><br /><a href=''>Governments</a> implemented universal education and health care and set up competition watchdogs and tribunals to protect us from inequality. <a href=''>Oh,</a> and an independent judiciary and media that kept all the bastards honest. <a href=''>These</a> structures served as our moral umpires on the footy field of life. <a href=''>They</a> blew the whistle on too much greed, they white-carded corporations that crash-tackled a minority group, and sin-binned polluters. <a href=''>And</a> it all served to save us from that dreaded moral loneliness, or acedia. <a href=''>Then</a> capitalism joined the game. <a href=''>It</a> kicked off in the late 17th century and hit its stride during the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century. <a href=''>Although</a> some physicians have cited the natural change in an adolescent's hormones as a cause of acne, Dr Fisher came to believe that the greater influence was the effect of drinking cow's milk. <a href=''>The</a> reason is that cow's milk is loaded with naturally-occurring hormones and growth factors. <a href=''>In</a> the milk sold in America, these levels are even more exaggerated. <a href=''>This</a> is due to the practice of artificially inseminating dairy cows just days after they have given birth, so as to keep their milk production high. <a href=''>The</a> result is that cows are milked during the period when they are releasing the highest levels of hormones into their milk. <a href=''>Androgen</a> activates the production of sebum, a wax-like product secreted by the sebaceous glands on the face. <a href=''>When</a> the sebum hardens it blocks the pilosebaceous canal and appears as a blackhead on the surface of the skin. <a href=''>It</a> is the body's effort to rid itself of this hardened sebum that leads to inflammation and the dreaded red blemishes on the skin. <a href=''>These</a> blemishes then fill with blood and lymph fluids, creating an ideal environment for bacteria to flourish. <a href=''>Insulin-like</a> growth factor (IGF-1), one of nearly 60 different hormones and growth factors found in a glass of cow's milk, may also be a concern for acne. <a href=''>Each</a> morning when you wake up and each night before going to sleep, read your goals and then visualize the exact outcome you want. <a href=''>Here</a> are two tips to maximize your results: <a href=''>Appeal</a> to the senses. <br /><br /><a href=''>As</a> we said in the last article, the more real we can make our visions, the more we empower our brain to make it a reality. <a href=''>When</a> you visualize your goal, what do you hear? <a href=''>What</a> do you smell? <a href=''>How</a> much does your trophy weigh? <a href=''>What</a> does the ball feel like? <a href=''>Who</a> is next to you? <a href=''>Is</a> there a breeze? <a href=''>As</a> I said, capitalism, like religion or communism, isn't intrinsically bad. <a href=''>It</a> started out with the intention of freeing us from the strictures of religion (which had become corrupt and thus failing in its moral umpire role) and conservative social norms and did largely raise incomes, life expectancy, literacy and equality to some extent. <a href=''>Cut</a> to the 1960s and 1970s and capitalism stepped up a notch, primarily in the United States, United Kingdom and also Australia, playing out as neoliberalism. <a href=''>We</a> saw thefree market' mindset extended to every part of our lives. Competition and individualism were regarded as the defining characteristics of human relations and citizens became consumers whose democratic choices were best exercised by buying and selling. Neoliberalism became focused on kicking the moral umpires off the field, or at the very least confiscating their whistles, so individuals could do as they needed. Umpires, particularly those funded by governments or `tax-payer dollars', got in the way of the free market. So, neoliberalist policy got rid of parks, libraries and other services that united us as a community. We've all seen this happen in our lifetimes, it's not unfamiliar, right? Corporate dollars convinced governments to switch from being providers of universal health care and free tertiary education to promoters and enablers of markets and competition. Some researchers believe that IGF-1 and testosterone may work together to promote acne. Yet for decades, American dairy farmers have been breeding for cows that produce the most IGF-1 levels, because this leads them to produce more milk. Adding to the mix is the fact that the genetically-engineered hormone rBGH causes dairy cows to produce even higher levels of IGF-1, which ends up in their milk.
