Crazy maps of bacteria and chemicals all over the human body!

grippe-vorbeugen-infografikCrazy maps reveal colonies of bacteria and chemicals all over the human body

Our largest and most exposed organ — our skin — is covered in and composed of not just human skin cells but also about a trillion bacteria (and even more viruses) along with molecules from chemicals we come into contact with every day.

Researchers just mapped the “chemical topography” of human skin in order to figure out what exactly is living and settling on there and how those skin cells, bacteria, and chemicals interact. We have different types of bacterial communities all over and inside our bodies, and while scientists have previously created maps of the skin microbiome, this was the first map to look at what these bacteria are doing and how they interact with the chemicals we’re exposed to in day-to-day life.

To create these maps, researchers asked a man and a woman (person 1 and person 2, respectively) to skip bathing, shampooing, moisturizing, and using almost all cosmetics for three days (the woman did use deodorant during that time). After three days, they took samples from 400 individual spots on each person’s body so they could run two different types of analyses to see what they found.

The image takes a look at the bacterial diversity and general chemical diversity on the skin of both subjects — the red spots have the highest concentrations of different bacterial species or chemicals, the blue the lowest.

It’s important to note that these maps are only representative of two people — there is likely a huge variety of bacterial and chemical diversity among humans. Part of the goal here was to show that these 3D topographical maps could be created, which they did successfully, but they also found all kinds of other interesting things. One intriguing finding? The cosmetic products that touch our skin, like soap and shampoo, seem to leave chemical residue that stays on skin for days, weeks, or longer.

Let the sunshine in!

Soldier 1:
We starve-look
At one another
Short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Peace + Food = Peacefood

 

 

In dem dreiteiligen Talk mit Dr. Ruediger Dahlke, dem wohl bekanntesten Experten zum Thema ganzheitliche Gesundheit, geht es um Essen für den Frieden: Ohne Fleisch und ohne tierische Produkte. In seinem Buch „Peace Food” plädiert der Arzt und Psychotherapeut für eine vegane Ernährung und schildert, warum Milch keineswegs so gesund zu sein scheint, wie oft behauptet. Sogar Bill Clinton ernährt sich seit einiger Zeit vegan, seit er die „China Study” gelesen hat. Darüber hinaus aber erspart verminderter Fleischkonsum unzähliges Leid bei den Tieren: 98 aller Tiere, die später verzehrt werden, haben nie ein natürliches Leben unter freiem Himmel erlebt.

Act for Seed Freedom: 2-16 October 2012

This video is available in multiple languages. Please visit the Seed Freedom video channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/occupytheseed.

From 2nd October (Gandhi’s Birth Anniversary), to 16th October (World Food Day) the Global Alliance for Seed Freedom is planning intensive actions to create a global citizens’ response on the issue of Seed Freedom that we hope will act as a wake up call for citizens and the government. Gandhi had said, “as long as the superstition that unjust laws must be obeyed exist, so will slavery exist”. Humanity and diverse species on the Earth are being pushed into a new form of seed slavery. In the spirit of Gandhi, we therefore call for a civil disobedience against unjust laws. Below, we outline a number of ideas for actions that we emphasize are only a starting point. We look forward to planning common strategies and actions together as the campaign for Seed Freedom becomes stronger and louder.
Join the Global Alliance for Seed Freedom in a Fortnight of Action from the 2-16 October 2012. Add your planned events and actions to our Fortnight calendar: http://seedfreedom.in/events/community/add
