Dyslexia Around The World!
As I head to Bali to present the universality of dyslexia…
I ponder on a question I was asked recently at an event “Does dyslexia exist in other countries and languages?” Unfortunately, it does indeed. Dyslexia shows itself on every continent, in every language.
However, dyslexia shows up differently in different languages and cultures. Dyslexia is sometimes difficult to detect and pin down from one country to the next. In the USA, there are many sub-types of dyslexia, based somewhat on where weaknesses show up in reading and writing. In other countries, dyslexia may present differently based on what parts of the brain are engaged in the deciphering of letters and words or based on the structure and syntax in the language processing.
In Chinese and Japanese, the shapes of symbols that become words may be representations from nature. Hence the part of the brain that recognizes shapes as a matter of survival is called upon. In English and many romance and Germanic languages, the shapes of the letters are abstract and therefore call upon areas of the brain that decode and assign meaning to “nonsense”, but predictable, shapes. read more

begins by redefining dyslexia, offering the most comprehensive view of this problem yet. It describes dyslexia’s common symptoms, lists its associated conditions, and details the many theories that surround this issue. It goes on to explain how the brain develops, revealing how an improperly functioning brain may be rewired and repaired through the right combination of therapies, all of which are described in detail. It then shows how important nutrition, exercise, play, and music are to learning ability, and concludes with invaluable advice on how to choose the right school for your dyslexic child.”

Sugar’s Bad? There is an Alternative, but Make Sure It’s Not Rat Poison!
By Dr. Phyllis Books
So, you’ve been warned about the pitfalls of sugar, and you’re contemplating sugar substitutes to satisfy your cravings. Well, we thought it only prudent to let you know that aspartame (found in diet soda, some baked goods, gum and even some baby formula and in over 5,000 other foods and drugs) is not only one of this country’s favorite and most prevalent sugar substitutes, it is also an excellent ant poison!
In fact, aspartame was used actively as an ingredient for ant eradication while it was first being determined “safe” in 1983 by the FDA for human consumption as a sugar substitute.
People in remote areas, who don’t have access to other forms or ant poison, or who have tried many kinds of poison that weren’t effective, rely on aspartame to kill their ants.
Once again in yet another way, as bad as sugar can be in it’s various forms, it’s still better than some artificial substitutes. …. read the full article on the blog
Picnics, graduation parties, year end bake-sales or a thank you gift for the boss, cookies are always a great standby. They remind you of Sundays with Grandma or babysitting your favorite nephew, but they don’t have to mean afternoon sugar crashes or fear of a trip to the dentist because of their sugar content. The very much less toxic sugar substitute, Xylitol, would fool even the sweetest of Grannyies and is only harmful in huge doses (causing diarrhea). So, use it, but as with everything else, don’t over use it!
