Why all the fuss about lowering carbon dioxide in the environment

I recall posting a blog several years ago on the photosynthesis reaction where CO2 in the presence of water and energy (photons) from sunlight is converted to oxygen and glucose- 2 products that the human body cannot make and are therefore classified as essential nutrients.
I still recall the experiment from my 3rd year Honours botany class- a class that I took from Dr. William Leach at the U OF MANITOBA in 1947. This course was one from the 5 year honours program from the university of Manitoba in both combined Botany and Zoology . In this experiment we followed the method outlined by Leach and Stiles in their small book on photosynthesis. At that time the U. of Manitoba had on staff internationally recognized professors. (Names like Buller,Wardle) In the experiment I recall observing bubbles of O2 into a beaker which had some green plants and a source of CO2!- a procedure nature produces with its algae blooms on our lakes.
If we remove CO2 from our atmosphere the trees would not produce glucose which when polymerized in plants becomes our lumbar,or in our garden plants the starchy potato tutors, tomatoes, wheat etc.
Where would we get out supply of oxygen if there was no CO2 in our atmosphere? Have I missed something in this argument?

Sex hormonal imbalance possible role in sexual orientation

According to the textbook by the Life Extension Foundation entitled “Disease Prevention and Treatment ” 5t Edition on page 608, pregnenolone -the “mother hormone”- is synthesized from cholesterol in the adrenal gland, and then through DHEA and the intermediate hormone androstenediol it cascades to produce both the male hormone testosterone and the female hormones collectively called the estrogens. According to the authors the estrogens are a mixture of 3 separate female sex hormones: Estrone,Estradiol, and Estriol in different proportions and with different functions
It occurred to me that maybe the difficulty for some individuals to determine their own gender and sexual behaviour may be the result of shifts in the concentrations of these different hormones.I recall in my own medical practice that I diagnosed a case of Kleinfelter’s syndrome based on the presence of an extra X (sex) chromosome-which incidentally was made in my own private Western Cytogenetic Laboratory.

Cholesterol controversy

With the knowledge of the role that cholesterol plays in the biosynthesis of the sex hormones precursors (pregnenolone and DHEA), the integrity of the myelin sheath of nerve fibres and possible role in multiple sclerosis, as well as a natural nutrient antioxidant and/or free radical scavenger it was gratifying to hear and to see on TV that the dietary restriction of cholesterol has been waved.
In my previous blogs I have for years advised against the use of cholesterol lowering drugs,not only for these functions but also for the studies which found a relationship of cardiomyopathy associated with certain statin drugs, especially in women.
I wonder how soon and if doctors will stop prescribing statin and other cholesterol lowering drugs-

VHS tapes for my Memoirs

It has now been over a year since I stopped digitalizing my VHS tapes. Most of these videotapes took over 2 hours to digitalize with each taking over 7-10GB of memory space.. For this reason I made backups onto several external hard drives as well as on my time machine backups (Passport ).I also backed up my photos (all 50,000 of them ) They occupied over 130GB of storage
A few days ago- after I had completed a routine time machine back up on my iMac- I entered my time machine selecting the July 14/2014 date. Under the finder I went to movies/easy VHS to DVD capture. where I found all the digitalized VHSs. I began viewing the series( estimating about 20 ) I had taken. Some were from my program with Shaw cable entitled Health and Longevity. as well as one of the 3 videos I had recorded of the mini or “hybrid ” symposium on Orthopaedic Medicine which I had organized at the WCB (workers Compensation Board) and which was presented by Don Fraser and John Evans from St. Catherine (Ontario)- I think the year was 1986 ?.
I was impressed not only with the contents of these DVD’s but also with the quality of the video- of those taken by myself and using my own video equipment. I realize now that I don’t think I gave Dr.Don Fraser a copy of his 3 day seminar delivered at the WCB. Maybe in the future when hopefully someone decides to record my memoirs that-in order to avoid copyright issues-that they acknowledge him and his therapist John Evans as well as Dr. Bill Guy- medical director at the WCB.- much like the acknowledgement I recently received from the editors of Medical Post when I was planning to use the full page article by Gene Telpner in the December 1966 issue of this medical publication. (I received an email giving me permission to use this pager for publication if I insert the statement that it was a publication by the author and it appeared in the Medical Post journal.
I must get back to continue converting my VHA as well as the Sony videotapes to DVD- my estimate is that they together total over 200 videotapes With having recently celebrating my 88th birthday.- who knows how many more years I have left to gather information for my memoirs-
