Flaxseed chicken study
It may sound like Voodoo, but everything we put into our bodies will impact our health somehow. Too often, many of us opt for something fast and flavorful that really lacks the proper nutrition. We'll go grab greasy burgers that gives a moment of fulfillment over something packed with fresh nutrients that may take time to prepare.
Not being a nutritionist but having done brief amounts of research on proper nutrition and also using proper nutrition (alongside regular exercise) to lose up to 60-plus pounds since December of last year, I'm continuously fascinated by the study of nutrition.
But it's not just for weight loss. It's for overall health. And something even more important the battle against cancer. Alongside choosing crummy foods over high nutritional foods, people also end up opting for pharmaceuticals they hope will help ease some of the burden created by not getting the proper nutrition.
So when there's a news article about a study concerning flaxseed decreasing the rate of ovarian cancer in chickens, we've got to talk about it. In the 10 o'clock hour Bishop On Air welcomes Dr. Dale "Buck" Hales, a reproductive physiologist from SIU School of Medicine, Carbondale. He published a study in May about flaxseed and chickens. We'll hear about his study and what it means for nutritional science.
To act or not to act
That's the question when it comes to a special session for the Illinois General Assembly. This week, legislators will meet to discuss how to act given Governor Pat Quinn's Amendatory Veto. We'll gage the audiences reaction --- what should stay and what should go? If the GA does override, it could still take 6 months to implement. Or should the entire thing be thrown out so Illinois can have constitutional carry? If the GA doesn't act, that's what could happen! We'll get your calls. As far as pensions are concerned ... who knows where that's going?!

It's a comprehensive breakdown of some of the most underreported news of the day. Catch the final moments of Bishop On Air to get that review.
