Mustache for Charity

I’m right in the midst of Rosstache, the mustache-growing charity contest here at Ross, and I need your help. With my beard now at four weeks, I’m trying to plan out a final mustache strategy for the competition on April 1. Here’s your canvas:

And if you want to help me out in my efforts by donating to the Penrickton Center for Blind Children, here’s how:

  1. Go to
  2. Click “Donate”
  3. Make your donation through PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPay account, click “Continue” under “Don’t Have a Paypal Account?” to donate by credit card. Just before you donate, there is an option to answer “Which Rosstacher are you donating for”. Indicate my name there. Big or small, all donations are helpful.

Time to 1982 it up.

  4. Alternative To Typical Synthetic Supplements IS NECESSARY, Say Experts
    Whole food supplements is currently a subject of worldwide interest. A profusion of evidence has recently emerged suggesting that common synthetic multivitamin supplements may be hazardous to your health. Goran Bjelakovic, a respected scientist from the University of Copenhagen, headed up a massive meta-study that viewed the results of 67 placebo-controlled trials previously performed to look for the effects of vitamin and anti-oxidant supplements on longevity. In the final end, the scholarly study combined observations of 232 000 test subjects. By using such a sizable population sample, a study can become much more powerful with regards to spotting large-scale trends and overcoming human bias.
    The results of the analysis, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, were nothing less than shocking. Taking a look at patients with diabetes, cardiovascular disease and lung cancers, as well as healthy, normal individuals, there was no apparent benefit to taking popular fractionated supplements like Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Selenium, or beta-Carotene. Actually, the results went in the opposite direction – there was an increased chance of death (16 percent) amongst Vitamin A users, a 7 percent higher death rate among beta-Carotene users, and a 4 percent mortality upsurge in Supplement E users. Beta-Carotene and Retinol, marketed as anti-carcinogenic agents, may promote lung malignancy. That is right – pills advertised as assisting you towards an extended, healthier life are in fact correlated with a speedier demise. This scholarly study used typical supplements on the market created from synthetic vitamins.
    To add insult to injury, a recent research published in the Uk Journal of Diet under the unimaginative name of “Ascorbic Acid Supplementation Does Not Attenuate Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness Following Muscle-Damaging Exercise But May Delay The HEALING PROCESS” indicated that supplementation with anti-oxidants from synthetic resources may reverse many of the beneficial effects of physical training.
    Now, this is not to say that vitamins or anti-oxidants are harmful to you. Far from it – these supplements were created based on solid science. Anti-oxidants are believed to protect cells from the ravages of free radicals still. The problem, rather, is the basic proven fact that you can get those advantages from synthetic isolated substances. Disease and the aging process are far more complicated than test-tube studies can take into account usually. Furthermore, the presssing issue of bioavailability can be an ever-present concern. Many typical synthetic supplements include huge amounts of the publicized vitamin, but absence the additional compounds had a need to ensure that their key ingredients are actually ingested by the body. Passing through the digestive tract direct, these ‘miracle health cures’ often wind up doing little beyond offering people expensive urine. To the rescue…Whole Food Supplements.
