A Tale of Two Zip Codes


When it comes to our health, our zip code matters much more than our genetic code. For many communities in California and across the United States, straightforward access to healthful meals possibilities, parks for exercising, and excellent schools determines high quality & length of life.

The California Endowment’s 10-year Constructing Healthful Communities initiative seeks to bring equity to all neighborhoods so that all Californians can appreciate the rewards of healthful communities to live extended and prosper. It is time to alter the odds for everybody.

An endless fountain of immortal drink, Pouring unto us from the heaven’s brink.
View Massive

A point of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases it will never ever
Pass into nothingness but still will preserve
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and wellness, and quiet breathing.
Therefore, on every single morrow, are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
Of all the unhealthy and o’er-darkened ways
Made for our browsing: yes, in spite of all,
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits.

Such the sun, the moon,
Trees old and young, sprouting a shady boon
For easy sheep and such are daffodils
With the green world they reside in and clear rills
That for themselves a cooling covert make
‘Gainst the hot season the mid forest brake,
Wealthy with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
And such as well is the grandeur of the dooms
We have imagined for the mighty dead
All lovely tales that we have heard or study:
An endless fountain of immortal drink,
Pouring unto us from the heaven’s brink.

John Keats

When upon a time, Norwegian fish oil was the best, healthiest type of fish supplement. The oil was drawn from fish that grew in the pure, cold, unpolluted waters about Norway. It was rich in the lengthy chain omega 3 fatty acids. And the price was low too.

But the Scandinavian fairy tale quickly ended. Industrial interests stepped in and muddied the waters. Fish farms cropped up, catering to a quickly expanding worldwide market for Norwegian fish oil.

And that meant top quality dropped.

* Fish raised on farms are fed antibiotics, hormones and drugs to preserve them alive and develop faster. All these toxins contaminate the fish supplements made out of them.

* Levels of DHA and EPA, the two crucial extended chain fatty acids, drops in fish that are harvested in colonies instead of becoming caught in the wild.

* Salmon that feed on algae and plankton store omega three fats in their fatty tissue, but artificially fed species do not get it out of their diet program pellets.

* Commercial trawling even dirtied the crystal clear waters about Norway, adding man made muck to the waters where the salmon, mackerel and halibut bred.

Presently, Norwegian fish oil is not globally competitive, or close to getting the very best fish supplement it when was. For one particular, it has lesser concentration of protective fats, requiring larger doses every single day. This increases the expense per particular person, which sets off the lower per capsule price tag advantage.

Another severe disadvantage of most forms of Norwegian fish oil is that they are not molecularly distilled. This means there is a larger level of PCBs, DDT and dioxin, along with heavy metals like mercury, in Norwegian fish oil.

The ideal brands of nowadays use oil from fish caught in the cleanest and coldest waters, preferably these far from commercial shipping lines and industrialized countries, particularly from deep southern waters around coastal New Zealand.

What tends to make these fish capsules even safer than Norwegian fish oil is the approach of molecular distillation by which all impurities and contaminants are removed.

If you’d like to discover a lot more about the DHA fish oil supplements I personally take everyday (and hugely advocate to my buddies), please drop by my web site these days.

  4. Although this sounds wonderful, in my World I cannot see how this proposed effort is factual & true. All I see everywhere I look thru my lens:▪from the bulldozing of Our neighborhoods more than 4 decades ago for the 105 Fwy, to which those who were forced to sacrifice their homes have the least access, i.e., both the financial cost AND where the physical accesibility has been strategically placed ~ I call it, "The Expressway Thru The Hood";▪to the persistent/consistent gentrification of Brown & Black neighborhoods… pushing out the Have Nots into the neither-here-nor-there-lands, and often into homelessness, all thanks to increased property taxes, greedy property owners/landlords, or because they simply can no longer afford the out-of-reach cultural/spiritual/financial cost of remaining;▪to the cloaked "urban renewal" (which has always been code for "Negro, Latino & other Have Nots’ removal") in the best interest of projects such as the Metro… and the largesse, which primarily the usufructing gentry who will ensue, shall benefit from/enjoy;▪to the increasing absence of political representation & advertising in "nicer area" public places, by & for the Melaninated.And the list goes on and on and on…All of this leads to exacerbated mental, physical & emotional strains, which adds up to an increase in stress-related illness, which continues to shorten, nor enhance or extend Our lives.So, although I REALLY want to believe that this supposed effort/campaign this is true, quite honestly, it all just adds up to a fancy bells & whistles animated PowerPoint presentation, which would make for an impressive augmentation for a doctoral thesis, but is in no way rooted in the Truth of Our reality. ~ dlb

  12. Good graphics, but it seems rather "preachy" and simplistic. This is the same theory that Gerald Diamond preaches in "Guns, germs, and steel." I didn’t buy it there either. It totally ignores generational choices and consequences and relegates individual responsibility to the nether sphere . But, rest assured, Thomas Piketty and the editorial board of the NY times totally agrees with you. And I could be wrong. Maybe we should abolish personal property rights so everyone can be equal. But then what? Do we redistribute everything annually? I mean, have u thought this out?

  13. Dear Nick, your fellow artists at the Essence group
