September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

America's hidden epidemic: food addiction

Katie Couric hosts a panel on food addiction with tennis champion Monica Seles, interventionist Brad Lamm and Yahoo Finance Markets Correspondent Nicole Sinclair

You may have heard the word "bingeing" used casually. People binge on food, alcohol, or even a series on Netflix (NFLX). But Binge Eating Disorder, or B.E.D., is the most common eating disorder in the US. It impacts almost 3 million Americans, making it more common than anorexia and bulimia combined.

And it may be vastly underreported.

B.E.D. was only recognized as an official disorder in 2013, which is when it was added to the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

For years, eating disorders were classified into one of three groups—anorexia, bulimia, and “eating disorder not otherwise specified,” making it difficult for individuals with B.E.D. to seek treatment covered by insurance.

B.E.D. includes bingeing on average at least once a week for three months and feeling that one’s eating is out of control during a binge. Individuals with B.E.D. don’t routinely try to “undo” their excessive eating with extreme actions like throwing up or over-exercising.

While the exact cause of B.E.D. is unknown, certain theories suggest that adults with the disease may have differences in brain chemistry that could reduce activity in impulse control-related parts of the brain, increasing the “wanting”of a particular food. There is evidence that family history and certain life experiences may also play a role.

The food industry—including names like Mondelez (MDLZ), Coca-Cola (KO), and General Mills (GIS)—has come under fire for the role it plays in making food more addictive as well, including investing in recipes that keep consumers wanting more.

On Thursday, Philadelphia passed a sugar tax. Several studies have related sugar addiction to more commonly-discussed addictive substances, including ****. But analysts have included that sugar taxes wouldn’t impact the overall growth of the sugar industry, especially from developing regions with growing middle classes, like Brazil and China.

B.E.D. has also received more focus in recent years, especially as one-third of Americans are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Global News Anchor Katie Couric hosted a panel on B.E.D. to discuss some of the most important aspects of the disease.

Monica Seles became the youngest number 1 tennis player in the world at age 17 and won 9 Grand Slam championships throughout her career, yet she struggled with binge eating disorder over the course of her career. She’s been outspoken about her struggles with binge eating disorder throughout her successful tennis career and joined Couric to discuss her journey.

ABC News Correspondent Mara Schiavocampo also shared her story on her struggle with B.E.D. before losing 90 pounds.

Brad Lamm, an interventionist who founded one of the few treatment clinics for the disorder, Breathe Life Healing Centers, discussed the scope of the disease and treatment remedies.

And I discussed how the industry may have contributed to the problem and the role insurance companies are playing.
