Elizabeth Gathoni Koinange is 117 year-olds, making her one of the oldest people alive.  She was the 5th of six wives of chief Koinange wa Mbiyu, a colonial era leader.  She lives on her compound in Kiambaa, Kiambu County in Kenya, and was born in 1900. 

Upon meeting her many believe her mental faculties would have already started to wan but to their surprise her memory is good and so is her health.  The jovial centenarian walks with the aid of a walking stick. 

The woman’s story has surfaced not because the media is so awesome, but because her 23-year-old great granddaughter is a London based freelance journalist with the BBC.  Ms. Koinange said of her life and age, “It not my doing but His. It is not because of what I eat and do. I’m happy and grateful that He has brought be this far, and I believe He is still with me.”

A new study refutes the old adage that salt makes you thirsty.  According to a Cosmonaut like study people who ate more salt were not thirstier but hungry. 

The study says no one had ever carried out a long term study to determine the relationship between the amount to salt in a person’s diet and his drinking habits.  The study had participants drinking less and eating more on a salty diet.  For more information about the study click here.

Beware: Cooking and warming with Aluminum foil could be Dangerous

Cooking with Foil

Scribe:  Lucy Osbourne

Email:  lucy@thethinkering.com

 

Most people are familiar with toxins leaching into the food when stored in plastic containers and microwave warmed.  Since 1913, aluminum foil has been the go to product when it comes to warming food in the oven.  No dirty dishes, easy to handle and even on a road trip you can place it on the dash and warm it by the sun. 

However, new information from the World Health Organization is offering a caveat, saying if you don’t stop warming your food in aluminum foil, you do need to cut way back.   When Dr. Lauber, Neher & Cie opened their first aluminum rolling plant in 1910, it was used to keep candy bars, gun and Life Savers safe from contaminants. 

Now we use it for everything and traces of aluminum are seeping into the food which can cause health problems over time.

Police brutality has been in the forefront of the American psyche for a few years with the senseless killings of unarmed African American men—with many of the white male killers walking away without punishment. 

Recently Michaella Surat, 22, a sorority member and resident of Fort Collins, Colorado was body slammed by a police officer.  She wasn’t killed but she was physically hurt and humiliated because of the melee.  She said in a recent interview, “I can’t go to school without feeling like someone is going to approach me and hurt me, I'm getting death threats online.”

Email: lucy@thethinkering.com

 

A man not expected to live more than 12 more months is asking a court of appeal to overturn a decision on the catholic ban allowing a person death assistance. 

Noel Conway, 67, is a retired college lecturer, who has a neurological disease and resident of Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK and was diagnosed at the end of 2014.   On Wednesday, the court of appeal reversed a previous ruling and required the high court should hear the contentious request.  Two UK Justices said for Mr. Conway’s narrowly defined group there should be a mechanism of assisted dying.

Conway who was not in the court said in a later statement, “I’m delighted that my case will now proceed to the next stage.”
