Try to eliminate consuming extra Antibiotics/Hormones in especially milk, reduce red meat consumption, and if there is one dairy item to buy organic its milk- especially for kids-meat as much organic/pesticide free veggies you can afford, wash ALL produce before eating, common sense to cut SUGAR, obviously don't smoke, or use "scented" chemical sprays and candles, and reduce exposure to toxic chemicals in the home as much as possible, and many studies are linking breast cancer to consumption of alcohol (more than one glass with meal)- alcohol = SUGAR, which is turned into fat. Power foods with anti-cancer anti-oxidants- Green Tea, Brocolli (dark greens), apples, oranges, berries, filter your water with a Brita to get Chlorine out- don't flush chemicals or old medications- bec what we flush and pour down drains contaminates our drinking water supply, and lastly, staying active/walking. Mediteranian diet and lifestyle- little meat, little sugar, lotsa veggies and only wine with food, and lots of walking an talking

Mr. Wallace- I don't think its fair to say the Obamacare creators believed it would be at no additional cost to cover the uninsured. I have been hearing from day one- that the rich/luxury/young and healthy plans may pay will pay a bit more. You are not taking into consideration the "cost' to taxpayers aready by the uninsured who use the ER room because of no access to a primary care. Have you ever seen an ER bill or even an Urgent Care bill? If not, it is shocking and immoral. You are probably right in that most doctors may now refuse to accept the "lower paying patients"- which only proves that these "Doctors" are in it for the "profit" not healing. So obviously a FIX to Obamacare would be to mandate that doctors get paid and charge the same for all patients- medicare, Medicaid, private. Keep an eye on VERMONT- they are launching the FIRST SINGLE PAYER SYSTEM in the entire country- Everyone In, No one Out- So the failure of Obamacare is actually an open door invitation to SINGLE PAYER for any State who wants to put health before profit.

The Economic and Social divide cannot be more apparent than in Schenectady County-
Nisky and Schdy High. The County should encourage a student exchange/lottery to promote diversity and study the effects on learning. Or what about exchanging the teachers to see what effect that may have on learning. What makes one district better than the other? Is it the really the quality of the teachers or the wealth of the population? Does Nisky really have better teachers than Schdy? If so why?

Phils2008 - GOP and so called Religious Freedom" pushers have been working TIRELESSLY to ban access to birth control now being covered in the ACA/ObamaCare - they are claiming that denying OTHER women access is their religious freedom - go figure that one out- And perhaps it is not clear to you that "unwanted" does not always mean "Preventable" - how does a child prevent a rape?

OMG- what did this person do that was illegal? Since when can't you lock yourself in your own home? The way police respond these days is abuse of power and traumatizing
Why the SWAT Team? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? IF this person has a mental illness issue- its even more disgusting and evidence we have turned to a police state. Please give more details as to WHY do they want to Help this person? At the barrel of a gun and frightening military riot gear?

This is what kids growing up in poverty, neglect, maybe abused- results in- kids expressing their stressful home life in school is my opinion.
We need to nurture these kids as best as possible. Violent TV has only made our children worse off- across all communities-Kids "learn" and do what they see.
so so sad-

Phils2008, Who is going to take care of all these "unwanted pregnancies" whether born healthy or born severely deformed or brain dead, to only "live" in a permanent vegetative state? I don't see the good in forcing a fetus to be born into a life of pure hell and torture. As far as I know, there is no such waiting list of "pro-lifers" anxious to adopt such sick newborns. Pro-lifers are not even lined up to adopt the healthy "LIVING' kids currently lingering in State Institutions, and group homes. In NYS alone there are thousands of kids waiting for adoption. IMO GOP/"pro-lifers" are the hypocrites -bec they push to stop abortions and ban common sense birth control but when such babies are actually born severely disabled (mentally or physically) or into poverty, the GOP push to cut food and social programs to help them live. How cruel. And probably most "pro-lifers" have never personally been faced with the MANY serious medical conditions that can arise in pregnancy-so there is a level of ignorance to contend with on top of the hypocracy. GOP/Pro-lifers need to stay out of personal medical decisions and reproductive lives and the new Affordable Care Act MUST force insurance companies to include access to birth control pills and abortion and it's imperative that our Govt expand social security programs- not cut them.
