Brain Health Corner

We human beings do so much.  We go to work, go to the gym, make meals for the week, raise kids, and go over financials. Takes a lot of work, and energy! That also means our brains require energy to handle all that activity. Mental health and well-being is a major concern considering the world we live in.  Everyday we are bombarded with information, either from TV, our computers, or social media devices.

Our brain is like a big computer, that has to process all of this information to determine what is relevant and what isn’t, and then tell the body how to deal with that information. The brain can also think and emit emotions. At the basis of all of this are 100 billion nerve cells (neurons) and one trillion supporting cells (astrocytes) that cooperate together to build a high functioning super computer called the brain, and makes us the intelligent humans we think we are.

So why not take care of your brain!

Look at some of our highly recommended products that we think in some way support brain health and wellness!,..

Yes, how shall we save the planet?

I recently taught at a few academic institutions, and a common theme has been to teach students that many of our actions can influence the downstream watershed in seemingly distant states. The Chesapeake bay is one of the most economically relevant watersheds that supports vast amounts of commercial activity for the United States, yet also supports a wide diversity of species crucial for the areas very survival.

A fascinating tale of how scientists are trying to solve one of the biggest challenges yet. How do we support the 10 billion people on Earth, projected to occur within the next 15 to 20yrs? Can we continue our current agricultural processes indefinitely? Are there other solutions? This book discusses many themes of the “Green Revolution”, and highlights the fascinating story of  how crossbred varieties of wheat that resisted certain diseases, fended off starvation in Mexico and India.

So how do we support the 10 billion people on Earth again? How about growing food in the lab… ? Yup thats what some scientists are doing. While it may sound strange, there are many advantages to growing animal-based food products from healthy tissue (reduced disease and overgrazing that take place in certain agricultural settings would be a couple). So go ahead and soon try a petri-dish hamburger!.

If children lose contact with nature they won’t fight for it – George Monbiot

A new book by Jason M. Colby recently became available through Oxford press discussing the demise of the orca population that we now all idolize, love, and revere.  Killer whales were not always so loved, and in the mid 1900’s they were hunted to near extinction. I encourage everyone to read this book. Now more than ever we as a society should understand how our past actions have shaped our current future.

Our brain works in two ways! The fast response, and the slow thoughtful response.


Our brain is hardwired two deal with our environment in two very distinct ways. The first way is that our brain interprets signals and converts them to fast responses. So when you walk (you are not thinking move left foot, move right foot, you just walk). The second response is a slow response, which operates as a check type system in which the brain exerts more energy in figuring out a particular problem. We need both system for very different response. Check out this book to learn a bit more on the topic.
