Chapter 11. Minerals

Klatz M.D. D.O., Ronald Basic Health Publications ePub



Boron is a little-studied mineral found naturally in fresh fruits and vegetables.


Boron helps retain calcium in bones and prevents calcium and magnesium loss through the urine. It also helps bone mineralization and prevents osteoporosis. Epidemiological data implies that boron may help to prevent arthritis. There is evidence to suggest that boron is involved in estrogen and testosterone metabolism. In postmenopausal women, it increases estrogen naturally. Results of a study by Nielsen et al. (FASEB J. 1987;1:394397.) led the researchers to conclude: supplementation of a low-boron diet with an amount of boron commonly found in diets high in fruits and vegetables induces changes in postmenopausal women consistent with the prevention of calcium loss and bone demineralization. Several studies carried out over recent years have led the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to conclude that boron is an important nutrient for brain and psychological function in humans.

29. Ethical Salesmanship

Take the “Ow” Out of “Now”

Approximately 20 minutes


“Now” is one of the words to which potential buyers are most likely to respond.

Participants in this exercise are tasked with identifying key words that attract customers. They are also shown a list of persuasive words. Then, they are given a product for which to prepare an advertisement that uses some of these words in an ethical fashion and one that does just the opposite.


To provide participants with a list of words that can be used to describe a product or service.


Any size group, divided into an even number of subgroups.


Two, four, or six table groups of three to six participants each.


Flipchart and marking pens

Overhead projector

Transparency 29.1, “Words That Work”

Handout 29.1, “Article: ‘Your’ Key to Closing More Sales”


1. Begin with a discussion of “trigger words,” both positive and negative, that influence participants as buyers, as employees, and as members of a diverse society.

Abstract— In this paper, we propose a monadic higher order safe ambient calculus. The expressiveness of this calculus is studied. We showed that polyadic higher order safe ambient calculus, first order safe ambient calculus with capability-passing, first order safe ambient calculus with name-passing, and polyadic π-calculus can all be encoded in monadic higher order ambient calculus. At last, we show that synchronous monadic higher order ambient calculus can be encoded in asynchronous monadic higher order ambient calculus.

Keywords: Process Calculus; Higher Order Safe Ambient Calculus; Expressiveness.
