1. Vitamin Lawyer Blogs & Factoids

New Postings - http://vitaminlawyerhealthfreedom.blogspot.com/

Factoid: "01/02/2008 - The deadline for health claims to be submitted by member states to the European Commission passed yesterday, and among those passed on was the UK's 4,000 page dossier. The country's 3,931 page-long booklet, submitted by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), shows the scale of the task before the Commission and the European Food Safety Authority" As usual, relying on bureaucracy to rationalize the market is a near impossible task. Maybe they shoud have left it to market forces? nutraingredients.com/news/ng.asp?n=82966&m=1NIE201&c=jegwylrviswtnqa

This eMemo is being sent through my “back-up” Earthlink email address since AOL is still blocking my usa.net emails; however, please email me at ralph.fucetola@usa.net as I monitor that email all the time. If you have an AOL email address, please add my usa.net address to your permitted list.

2. Deep red and blue berry elements in weight management

From a study being published in Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry


"Purified forms of extracted anthocyanins from berries may decrease obesity, but the whole fruit doesn't produce the same benefits, suggests a new study with mice.
If the results can be translated to humans, anthocyanins extracted from blueberries and strawberries could find a role in the burgeoning weight loss and management market, estimated to already be worth $7bn (€5.2bn) globally.

"The recent findings that anthocyanins could possibly affect the development of obesity, at least in animal models, have generated considerable interest," explained the researchers, from USDA Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center and the University of Arkansas. "


3. Bio-Identical Hormones at Risk!
From P2C2 - Patients and Professionals for Customized Care


"The FDA and Wyeth, a big drug maker, are trying to stop bio-identical hormone replacement therapy! Get involved and fight back!

Last week FDA decided to support a Wyeth campaign against compounded treatments and announced that it will "halt" compounding of hormone treatments that contain estriol. Estriol is a common and critical component of many bioidentical hormone therapies (including Bi-Est and Tri-Est) that meets standards that were established by Congress. If you are not sure if you are taking estriol, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Even if you don't take a medication with estriol, is your hormone or other compounded treatment next?

If FDA and Wyeth have their way, you will lose this access to vital treatment options. This action affects hundreds of thousands of women!"


4. Important Yahoo!Groups Privacy Information Received from a Friend

If you belong to any Yahoo Groups read this notice - it is important!

Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons" to track Yahoo Group users around the net and see what you're doing and where you are going (similar to Cookies.)

Yahoo is recording every website and every group you visit.

Take a look at their updated privacy statement

1. http://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.html

2. About half-way down the page, in the section on Cookies, you will see a link that says "Web Beacons".

Click on the phrase "WebBeacons".

3. That will bring you to a paragraph entitled "Outside the Yahoo Network".

In this section you'll see a little "click here to opt out" link which will let you "opt-out" of their new method of snooping.

4. Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted.

Notice the "Success" message on the top of the next page.

Note: Be careful because on that page there is also a "Cancel Opt-out" button which, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out. It appears after you have hit the opt-out button so is very confusing.


5. Top 10 Search Engine Optimization Strategies For Your Website!

Entireweb Newsletter * January 29, 2008 * ISSUE #409

“Although the concept of search engine optimization can be somewhat complex, there are a number of basic search engine optimization techniques you can use to improve your organic search results…

1. Meta Tags. Meta tags are simple lines of code at the top of your web page programming that tell search engines about your page. Include the title tag, keyword stag, description tag, and robots tag on each page.

2. Create and update your sitemap. Developing a site map is a simple way of giving search engines the information they need to crawl your entire website. There are plenty of free software packages on the web that can help…

3. Ensure that all navigation is in HTML. All too often, navigational items are in the form of java script. Even though navigation technically still works in this format, it's not optimized. Create your navigation in HTML…

4. Check that all images include ALT text. Your image's alt text is spidered by search engines. If you're not including your keywords in alt text, you're missing out on a huge opportunity for improved search engine result placements…

5. Use Flash content sparingly. Content generated through java script or flash is a big no-no…

6. Make sure that your website code is clean. Keep in mind when optimizing a web page crawlers are basically only looking at your source code…

7. Place keywords in your page content. Search engines scan your website and web pages for keywords. Shoot for a keyword density of between two and eight percent…

8. Submit your website to search engine directories. It's always a good idea to let large search engine directories know that you're out there. Submit your website URL to directories like Google, Yahoo, and DMOZ.

9. Build links to your website. Consider building a link exchange program or create one-way links to your site using articles or forum posts…

10. Learn the basics. Learning to optimize your website for search engines takes time and patience…
