    It can be a sign of Mg deficiency.

    Yep, there is a clinical trial going on for that right now.

    http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01273883

    Magnesium improved hearing recovery and lessened tinnitus in patients with idiopathic sudden hearing loss (Gordin et al, 2002). More recently, Nageris et al (2004) showed in a well-controlled study that magnesium was a relatively safe and convenient adjunct to corticosteroid treatment for enhancing the improvements of hearing in acute-onset sensorineural hearing loss at a dose of 4 g. The protective effect of magnesium in noise-induced hearing loss has been previously reported (Ising et al, 1982; Scheibe et al, 2000).



    Despite these encouraging findings, no controlled study has examined the effect of magnesium supplementation for patients with moderate to severe tinnitus.

    Researchers Discover Superatoms With Magnetic Shells

    ScienceDaily (June 8, 2011) — A team of Virginia Commonwealth University scientists has discovered a new class of 'superatoms' -- a stable cluster of atoms that can mimic different elements of the periodic table -- with unusual magnetic characteristics.



    The superatom contains magnetized magnesium atoms, an element traditionally considered as non-magnetic. The metallic character of magnesium along with infused magnetism may one day be used to create molecular electronic devices for the next generation of faster processors, larger memory storage and quantum computers.



    In a study published online in the Early Edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team reports that the newly discovered cluster consisting of one iron and eight magnesium atoms acts like a tiny magnet that derives its magnetic strength from the iron and magnesium atoms. The combined unit matches the magnetic strength of a single iron atom while preferentially allowing electrons of specific spin orientation to be distributed throughout the cluster.

    Is it Rx? Mother Nature's prescription for our evolutionary mismatches? She left these pathways in us so we could "find our way home" after the mismatches have wreaked havoc with our species.

    Now I'm thinking Factor X was a problem (selection pressure) which uniquely required mental power to overcome, like never before. And therefore selected for the high protein diet responsible for our brain size increase. We had to master our environment somehow to survive, which separates us from other animals. But I'm drawing a blank on the 'what'. Maybe we had to learn to catch fish, deep from cold water.

    I get my flu shot every year and have no pollen allergies that I'm aware of (never any symptoms). Any idea how to research what's involved with identifying specific microorganisms?

    I just read a lot... I tripped over a really neat article and couldn't find it again.... I wouldn't know abut microorganism. I'm just trying to starve the carbohydrate shells off of anything.

    So many things in the natural world are trying to lead us toward that which we seek--to show us what is in our best interest. :)

    I have a single loud note in my ear after ct and a more delicate oscillating sound alternating between two notes when I ate rather a lot of sugar after several years of relatively clean diet. Cell membranes ..... Senses waking up...

    My guess: "UV"?

    My guess is IQ The ability to choose and create mismatches

    I guessed this a few weeks ago . . . did not elicit a response so it is a nope.
