Toddler Tossing is just one of the many new innovations of strength and conditioning we bring to Long Island!  Unlike a medicine ball or any other "dead" piece of equipment there's more at stake here when it comes to accuracy and eye/hand coordination.  Athletes who drop toddlers are banished.  Toddlers who survive this exercise are asked to stay and train.


New Study:  Vitamin D Levels Of The Maasai and Hadzabe Of Africa  "The Maasai are no longer hunter-gatherers but live, along with their cattle, either a settled or a semi-nomadic lifestyle. They wear sparse clothes, which mainly cover their upper legs and upper body, and attempt to avoid the sun during the hottest part of the day. They eat mainly milk and meat from their cattle, although recently they began to add corn porridge to their diet. Their mean 25(OH) vitamin D level was 48 ng/ml (119 nmol/L) and ranged from 23 to 67 ng/ml.

The Hadzabe are traditional hunter-gatherers. Their diet consists of meat, occasional fish, honey, fruits, and tubers. They have no personal possessions. They wear fewer clothes than the Maasai in that the men often wear nothing above the waist. Like the Maasai, they avoid the sun during the hottest part of the day. Their mean 25(OH)D was 44 ng/ml and ranged from 28 to 68 ng/ml."—Dr. John Cannell, Vitamin D Newsletter  (Thanks to Mark's Daily Apple for this re-post)


In case you are wondering….."An intake of 1000 IU of vitamin D per day is expected to bring vitamin D blood levels in half the adult population up to 30 ng/mL.8 Levels of 4,000 to 10,000 IU of vitamin D were found to be safe in younger adults.8 In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, girls ages 10 to 17, were given 14,000 IU per week (2000 IU per day) for 1 year without adverse consequences.15 Ten thousand IU per day, given to adults for up to five months, found no toxic effects.13"—-How Much Vitamin D?, Elizabeth Redmond, PHD, MMSC, Metametrics Institute Blogs 


No Science For You!  "This is about access to peer-reviewed scientific information—research that we pay for with our tax money. If this bill passes, Americans who want to read the results of federally funded research will have to buy access to each journal article individually—at a cost of $15 or $30 apiece. In other words, as the New York Times recently noted, taxpayers who already paid for the research would have to pay again to read the results."—Alliance For Natural Health USA
