Ed Snider, founder of the NHL Philadelphia Flyers, Passes 83 years old.

Ed Snider brought the first professional championship to Philadelphia.  I walked the parade route in 1974 down Broad Street with my cousin Marjorie.  I believe it started the tradition of a parade after a championship in all professional sports.

It has been reported that Mr. Snider was battling cancer.

May you rest in peace.

Nail Polish Danger? Chemical Triphenyl Phosphate.

I wore acrylic nails for 25 years being in the entertainment industry. OPI was my favorite.  I would layer colors to make it unique. I always used a professional nail salon. It came the day when I had a bad break where my nail was exposed to down to the nail bed. I had nails rip off before, band-aids were used frequently. But this one made me reflect, is it really worth it?  Then, I just soaked them off 5 years ago. No more chemicals. Now I realize the smell in the salons is toxic also the ingredients in the nail polish.  Many of the salon workers wear masks for that reason and many are of foreign decent. Now decades later, this study confirms what I already believed.

Via Natural News

Triphenyl phosphate (TPHP), a plasticizer dually used in nail polish and as a flame retardant for furniture, was detected in the urine of every woman who volunteered to participate in the study.

Environmental Working Group states,

The study found that when women applied nail polish with TPHP directly to their nails, the levels of a biomarker of that chemical in their urine increased sharply. Technically, the researchers tested the women’s urine for a chemical called diphenyl phosphate or DPHP, which is created when the body metabolizes TPHP. The results represent compelling evidence that TPHP, a suspected endocrine-disrupting chemical also used in plastics manufacturing and as a fire retardant in foam furniture, enters the human body via nail polish.”

25 percent of polishes containing TPHP didn’t have it listed on their label.

I always knew this, luncheon meats and always suspected red meat.

Eating processed meat can lead to bowel cancer in humans while red meat is a likely cause of the disease, World Health Organization (WHO) experts said on Monday in findings that could sharpen debate over the merits of a meat-based diet.

“For an individual, the risk of developing colorectal (bowel) cancer because of their consumption of processed meat remains small, but this risk increases with the amount of meat consumed,” Dr Kurt Straif of the IARC said in a statement.
