Findings from a similar research study from a group in China proved similar to this study. The Chinese study was performed on male mice. Both studies proved that there are many benefits to a lifelong higher intake of choline supplementation. What is choline?

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly." – Dr. Martin Luther King Today the Mayor of Sacramento, Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn knelt in solidarity with protesters at the Oak Park Community Center who gathered in solidarity to voice their dissent and disgust at the senseless death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis law enforcement. Many applauded the kneeling gesture, noting its symbolism during this difficult time. While other police chiefs around the country are seen hugging, kneeling, and shaking hands with protestors, the media is quick to document these counterfeit gestures as moments of understanding and unification. However, intention without action has been the modus operandi of all in power for keeping the status quo. George Floyd’s murder has erupted riots
