    A Dutch citizen will go on trial in the

    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A Dutch citizen will go on trial in the Netherlands next Monday on charges he committed war crimes in Ethiopia in the 1970s.The 63-year-old Dutchman, who was born in Ethiopia, is accused of the incarceration, torture and murder of opponents of former Ethiopian leader Mengistu Haile Mariam in the late ‘70s.As Mengistu’s representative in the Ethiopian province of Gojjam, the man is accused of ordering the killing of 75 young prisoners in 1978 and of being responsible for the incarceration and inhumane treatment of more than 200 people.n Ethiopian court has sentenced the man to death, in absentia, for his role in what was called the “red terror”, which the communist military junta of Mengistu conducted after the ouster of the Ethiopian emperor, Haile Selassie, in 1974.he Ethiopian sentence can’t be carried out in the Netherlands, making a new trial the best option to hold the man to account, the Dutch national prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday. The trial in The Hague is based on an investigation by the International Crimes Team of the Dutch national police. It contains the statements of several Ethiopian witnesses, some of whom will be present at the trial, the prosecutor’s office said. The accused has been held in provisional custody in the Netherlands since 2015. Mengistu was found guilty in absentia of genocide in 2007, after he and top members of his military government were accused of killing thousands during his 17-year rule. Mengistu was ousted in 1991 and fled to Zimbabwe, where he still lives.

  • What Happens When You Drink Baking Soda in Water on an Empty Stomach

    There are a handful of things I always like to have on hand in my home. Epsom salts, apple cider vinegar, activated charcoal, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. I like to have them on hand all for different various reasons. Some for detoxification, some for digestion, some for cleaning etc. Baking soda is one of those things that I personally like to have on hand for a few reasons. It makes a great cleaner, a great scrubbing agent to clean the sink or the bathtub.

    It also has valuable health effects and at the price of about 98 cents a box, you can’t beat it!

    What is baking soda exactly? Chemically it’s NaHCO3, also known as sodium bicarbonate, we call it baking soda! It’s a chemical salt that occurs in its natural form as the mineral nahcolite. Baking soda typically reacts as an acid, but in an aqueous solution such as water it is slightly alkaline. It’s an amazing cleaning agent and great for other health-related purposes as well.

     

    Drinking Water With Baking Soda: The Benefits

    1. pH Balancer:

      Many diseases and conditions including cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis and others thrive in an acidic environment. An acidic pH is necessary and normal in certain parts of the body such as the gut, where acid is needed for digestion. The skin is also acidic as an external layer between your internal and external environment. It’s a detoxifying organ. The pH of healthy blood is between 7.3 and 7.4. 7 is a neutral pH so the blood in good health is slightly alkaline. Drinking baking soda water on an empty stomach allows your body to absorb this and has an alkalizing effect. This is beneficial for blood health which helps to heal your entire body as well as keep things in homeostasis. Drink baking soda water on an empty stomach to alkalize your blood and body!

    2. Antacid Effect:

      Heartburn and acid reflux are symptoms of an overly acidic body. They are also typically signs of mineral deficiencies such as magnesium or potassium. The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is also not working properly. It is not properly contracting. The lower esophageal sphincter is a valve that connects the stomach to the esophagus. If it were contracting properly it would keep the acid in your stomach and not allow the acid to rise leading to heartburn. Getting magnesium and potassium rich foods such as leafy greens, avocado and bananas in your diet will help the LES work better. Simply drinking baking soda water on an empty stomach is beneficial also. Water with baking soda helps your gut to produce and benefit from hydrochloric acid. This helps your body to burp, helping subvert the issue. It also helps with heartburn and gas. Read more
