When we talk about mind, we basically refer to our capability to perceive, comprehend, think, judge, and remember – the intellectual and reasoning faculties.  Now pause for a moment and think. Think about all the people you know, who have  rather strange perceptions of people around them, or about certain cultural and political ideologies. People whose perceptions are delusional. Think about the people around you who need to be told everything twice before they understand you. Think about the people who either do not think at all (thoughtless ones) or who think too much. People who take wrong decisions even when facts are against their decision. And then think about the children at school who do not seem to remember anything. And the housewife who looks for her specs while wearing them on her nose.

The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) supports awardees in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Awardees include large and small cities and counties, tribes, tribal organizations, and national and community organizations. These awards support cross-cutting programs to prevent and control chronic diseases and improve community health. Find information below about current and past community health programs.
A leader in the eradication and elimination of diseases, the Center fights six preventable diseases — Guinea worm, river blindness, trachoma, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, and malaria in Hispaniola — by using health education and simple, low-cost methods. The Center also strives to improve maternal and child health in Sudan and Nigeria and improve access to mental health care globally.

Directeur de recherche à l'Institut Génétique Environnement et Protection des plantes de Rennes, Christophe Mougel étudie les phytobiomes (l'association des plantes, de leur environnement de croissance et de leur microbiote), une toute nouvelle vision de la plante en tant qu'écosystème, ou en tant que “super organisme végétal”, comme il le décrit. Les travaux de son Institut consistent à mieux comprendre le rôle des microbiotes et leurs fonctions au sein des espèces végétales. Il s'agit de décrire et de comprendre ce lien en vue notamment de développer “une agriculture de précision voire une agriculture personnalisée à l'échelle d'une exploitation”, comme l'explique M. Mougel.


To begin with, yes! I do believe in human spirit and God too. Wait! Don’t jump to any conclusions. Not yet. There is a big question that follows this one. What do you understand by God and human spirit? Well! I don’t know if there is something ethereal like God and spirits. For me God means ‘Good Deeds’. I don’t believe there is any God in idols and churches or heaven. I believe if there is any God, he is within us. The ‘Goodness’ in you is the God you think about.  I do not know and can not know if there is a dynamic human spirit that animates us. What I know is that life itself is dynamic. And the spirit I believe in is the summary of our physical, mental, and emotional health. For me ‘human spirit’ is what a person really is, apart from what he appears to be. I believe what goes around, comes around. What you sow, is what you reap. So if there is a hell, it’s right here and if there is a heaven, it’s right here. I am not aware of my past-life or after-lives, if I had any. But I have this life to live – the life that I am aware of – and I want to live it healthily. That’s my spirit!

Through the Basic Health Program, states can provide coverage to individuals who are citizens or lawfully present non-citizens, who do not qualify for Medicaid, CHIP, or other minimum essential coverage and have income between 133 percent and 200 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL). People who are lawfully present non-citizens who have income that does not exceed 133 percent of FPL but who are unable to qualify for Medicaid due to such non-citizen status, are also eligible to enroll.


1. Genes – Yes! our genes are one of the biggest factors in deciding the way in which our health gets deranged. They also decide which plane is affected the most in a particular person. Through ages, it is known to humanity that children tend to inherit their ‘mother’s nose’ or their ‘father’s eyes’. But what most of us do not realize is that children can also inherit the ‘father’s temperament’ or ‘mother’s thought process’.  And as children inherit the physical and mental makeup from their parents, they also inherit the tendencies and susceptibilities to acquire diseases. For example – it is a well known fact that conditions like obesity, hypertension, peptic ulcers, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, depression etc often run in families.


Il repose aussi sur le constat que 60% environ des maladies humaines infectieuses connues ont une origine animale4 et qu'au moins 70 % des maladies émergentes ou réémergentes graves sont depuis un siècle presque toujours des maladies zoonotiques5 ou à vecteurs (comme la maladie de Lyme6), qui peuvent être favorisées par des déséquilibres écologiques et/ou climatiques7,8. En outre 80 % des pathogènes utilisables pour le bioterrorisme sont aussi d'origine animale4.
4. Environmental factors – Increasing pollution of our air, water, and earth is a well known factor in the increasing level of many diseases. There is a high level of asthma and other allergic complaints in urban areas. Depleting ozone layer is a known factor in increasing rate of skin cancers. Noise pollution is a recognized factor in increasing anxiety and stress levels in our society.
Un microbiote. Un microbiote est défini lorsqu'un ensemble de micro-organismes vit dans un écosystème précis. Par exemple, nos intestins abritent leur propre microbiote. “On parle d'une grande diversité d'espèces (bactéries, champignons, etc.) auxquelles on peut ajouter les virus. Derrière cette grande diversité d'espèces se cache une grande diversité de fonctions, relativement centrales au fonctionnement des écosystèmes” explique Christophe Mougel.
Finally, while many testimonial and anecdotal accounts exist of health improvements following a "detox", these are more likely attributable to the placebo effect; where people actually believe that they are doing something good and healthy. Yet, there is a severe lack of quantitative data. Some changes recommended in certain "detox" lifestyles are also found in mainstream medical advice (such as consuming a diet high in fruits and vegetables). These changes can often produce beneficial effects in and of themselves, and it is accordingly difficult to separate these effects from those caused by the more controversial detoxification recommendations.
L'agence française Anses a annoncé le 24 octobre 2017 qu'elle allait à partir de janvier 2018 coordonner l’EJP One Health. Ce projet conjoint européen de recherche portera sur les zoonoses alimentaires20. Il est centré sur les risques d'intoxication microbienne zoonotique d'origine alimentaire, y compris par des toxines naturelles et/ou via les réservoirs animaux domestiques ou encore via d'éventuelles importations illégales de produits animaux21. Les agents biologiques étudiés seront les virus, les bactéries, les parasites, les champignons, les prions et les séquences de nucléotides / matériel génétique conférant la résistance aux antimicrobiens21. Ce consortium issu d'un réseau européen préétabli (NoE, FP6) qui a été élargi à plus de 40 partenaires venant de 19 États-membres sera soutenu par la Commission européenne et travaillera autour du concept One Health. Ces partenaires doivent améliorer la connaissance des zoonoses alimentaires, de l'antibiorésistance et de divers risques émergents21. De 2004 à 2009, l'Anses avait déjà coordonné un réseau d’excellence dans le cadre du 6e programme cadre de recherche et de développement (PCRD) de la Commission européenne. Elle a aussi aidé à créer l'association Med-Vet-Net qui en regroupant des instituts de recherche en santé publique et vétérinaire a préfiguré l'EJP One Health20. Les partenaires font déjà partie d'une réseau organisé de communautés de chercheurs et de laboratoires de référence travaillant sur les zoonoses alimentaires, l'antibiorésistance et des risques émergents. Ce programme One Health doit produire des données destinées à mieux caractériser, évaluer et hiérarchiser les risques sanitaires par les agences nationales et européennes21. Il doit aussi faciliter et accélérer la validation et diffusion des données au sein de la communauté scientifique, faciliter l'éducation et la formation, la gestion des connaissances, l'accès aux bases de données, mais aussi aux souches vivantes, aux biobanques, à certaines installations encore expérimentales21. Le projet pourra aussi contribuer à harmoniser et standardiser certains protocoles et tests21, en lien avec deux institutions européennes pertinentes pour des domaines : l'EFSA et l'ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control)21.
Visit your doctor if you have any health concerns. If you have any issues that are making you feel like you need to do a detox, then you might have an underlying health issue. If this is the case, it’s much better to handle that health issue with professional medical help. Don’t hesitate to visit your doctor for an exam if you think something might be wrong. This is the best choice to protect your health.[12]
