    *** State Licensing Boards Under Fire From Within ***

    The Supreme Court will take up an antitrust case this fall that could curb the proliferation of state licenses, a top worry for U.S. small-business owners and entrepreneurs.

    At issue: Can state licensing boards staffed with business owners and professionals regulate their own markets without oversight from government employees?

    The case, to be heard at the nation's highest court in mid-October, started with a dispute over teeth-whitening that erupted between the Federal Trade Commission and the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners.

    Is Modern Life Making Us Dumber?

    Scientists say that we have much smaller brains than our ancestors had 20,000 years ago … and we might have gotten stupider since agriculture became widespread.

    Jack will love this section.

    (2) Humans evolved to eat a lot of Omega 3s:

    Wild game animals have much higher levels of essential Omega 3 fatty acids than domesticated animals. Indeed, leading nutritionists say that humans evolved to consume a lot of Omega 3 fatty acids in the wild game and fish which they ate (more), and that a low Omega 3 diet is a very new trend within the last 100 years or so.

    In other words, while omega 3s have just now been discovered by modern science, we evolved to get a lot of omega 3s … and if we just eat a modern, fast food diet without getting enough omega 3s, it can cause all sorts of health problems.

    So something just discovered by science can be a central fuel which our bodies evolved to use.

    Omega 3s – in turn – boost intelligence and help prevent cognitive decline.

    From same article..................................

    And a very well-established resource for doctors (the Merck Manuals) state:

    The fetus is sensitive to damage from radiation because fetal cells are dividing very quickly and also differentiating from immature into mature cells. In the fetus, exposure in excess of 300 mGy during 8 to 25 weeks after conception may cause reduced intelligence and poor school performance.
