Brief comment on a study out of Duke University that has lead to the speculation, and also conviction for some, that Splenda destroys healthy gut flora. I'm sure Mercola and others are all over this study. Thanks to Jeff Green for bringing this to my attention via his Facebook post. After that, I will move on the Mercola's little bombshell of Splenda being closer to DDT than sucrose….

The brachialis muscle is located on the front part of the upper arm, nearest the elbow. Along with the biceps brachii and the brachioradialis, it is one of the primary flexors of the elbow. It gets its name from the Greek words brachialis and brachion, pertaining to the (upper) arm. It is important not to confuse these words with the Greek brachy which means "short." Although not as large as the biceps brachii, the brachialis is a relatively large and wide muscle and these two muscles, along with the coracobrachialis, make up the anterior (front) compartment of the upper arm. Unlike the biceps brachii, which attaches to the radius, the brachialis attaches to the ulna, making it suited for flexion of the elbow only, since it can only pull on the ulna and the ulna does not rotate. However, it provides strong elbow flexion in both supination and pronation.Bibliography item doyle not found.,Bibliography item simons not found.…

This is part two of our description of the 206 bones of the human body. Part one covered the axial skeleton, which comprises the vertebral column, the skull, and the thoracic cage. Part two will cover the upper appendicular skeleton, which is the 64 bones of the upper limbs and the bones which connect them to the axial skeleton, the pectoral girdle. Part three will cover the lower appendicular skeleton….
