Human Dignity & The Standing Rock Protests

Despite the media blackout, I hope most of you are aware of the protests currently taking place at Standing Rock in North Dakota. A bit of background: the Standing Rock Sioux and many other tribes from around the country are protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) project, which as proposed will pass along sacred burial sites and under Lake Oahe which is adjacent to Native American land. The pipeline could negatively affect the water supply and was re-routed from a primarily white area in Bismarck to the land adjacent to Native American land after the residents of Bismarck said they didn’t want the pipeline running through their backyard.

Can inflammation cause depression

Inflammation Is A Cause of Depression. What Causes Inflammation?

Recent studies in psychiatry have demonstrated that inflammation is a contributing factor in mental depression (Maes, Giorgian-Lavialle et al and Kohler et al). And the connection between the body’s immune system and the individual’s mental state is just beginning to be explored in books like Gut. This theory states that a wayward immune system is actually causing inflammation in the body, which in turn leads to depression. Read more about Inflammation Is A Cause of Depression.
