Some Conditions That Could Make You Ineligible For a US Green Card or Visa

Certain conditions are established by the Immigration and Nationality Act in the USA, which have to be met by the applicable before the required visa can be issued. There are some conditions or "Ineligibilities" which can render the immigrant ineligible for a green card or visa. These ineligible conditions are stated in the INA and other laws relating to immigration.

We will take a look at a few:

This ineligibility falls through section 212 (a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, or INA in short.


An alien who is discovered to have a communicable disease that significantly poses danger to public health.

An alien who has applied for a visa or for permanent residence but has not been able to provide any documentation on the vaccines taken by him or her in the past. The vaccinations are for diseases that can be transmitted through the intake of vaccinations; some of the diseases that have been prescribed vaccinations by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices are:

• Measles
• Mumps
• Rubella
• Polio
• Diphtheria
• Pertussis
• Influenza type B
• Hepatitis B
apart from any other diseases that can be prevented through the administration of vaccines.

An alien can be deemed to be found ineligible if in consultation with the Attorney General and with relevance to the rules prescribed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services he or she:

• Is found with a physical, mental or any other behavior that poses a threat to the safety and security, welfare and property of other residents, or

• Is found to be displaying a physical or mental disorder or a history that can be traced to the disorder, under a behavior that can pose a safety and security risk to others in the form of harmful behavior.

• Is found to be an abuser of drugs or medically dangerous substances.

CRIMINAL GROUNDS: If the alien has been found to be convicted of 2 or more criminal offsets (other than those that are political) is inadmissible. This is regardless of the fact that the conviction was done in a single trial or if the offenses have arisen from a 1 general scheme of misconduct. If the sentences to the convictions involve 5 years or more the alien will stand ineligible for admission into the country.

TRAFFICKERS OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES: If the consular officer or the Attorney General has reason to believe that the alien has been an illegal trafficker of any controlled or banned chemicals or substances or, if the alien has been a known abettor, assister of such a controlled or banned substance then this will make him or her her ineligible for admission into the country.

Alzheimer's Disease Treatment with Green Tea and Apple Juice

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic progressive neurodegenerative disease that adversely affects higher cortical functions in older adults. These cortical functions include:

* Memory

* Ability to think

* Orientation

Any research that lends itself to the study of reducing the effects of the disease or stopping the progress of this disease is worth note. Below are several recent finds and research that give promising results from some of the most illegally sources:

Apple Juice May Have A Positive Effect On Alzheimer's Patients

Writing the article on the effects of Apple Juice on Alzheimer's disease, Qi Dai, MD, PhD, states, "We found that frequent drinking of fruit and vegetable juices was associated with a substantially reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease." Surprisingly, there has been enormous amounts of other research on the health benefits of polyphenols including flavonoids.

Early studies suggested that polyphenols in green tea and fruit juices may be of some help in treating Alzheimer's disease symptoms. There is stronger evidence as a results of a recent clinical trial that the polyphenols in fruit juice may help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease

Green tea is very popular in Japan and its consumption there may be the cause of the lower percent of Japanese who have Alzheimer's. Japanese who live in America and adopt the lifestyle of Americans show the same percentage of Alzheimer's as Americans.

Drinking Tea is Thought to Have an Effect

A study by the University of Western Australia School of Medicine and Pharmacology, and the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR) confirmed findings that both tea intake and 4-O-methylgallic acid are consistent with the hypothesis that long-term regular ingestion of tea may have a favorable effect on blood pressure in older women. Green Tea in particular is rich in polyphenols, which have activities consistent with blood pressure-lowering potential.

The herb industry and the supplement manufacturers are making some dramatic claims for alternative remedies and cures for Alzheimer's disease. The recent findings confirm that fruit juice in the treatment of dementia and Alzheimer's disease may be worth pursuing.

As the new study points out, any new treatment that could halt or even slow the progress of Alzheimer's disease would have a major impact on the quality of life for patients, as well as reducing the staggering health care costs associated with the disease.

Marijuana Shows Promise in Treating Alzheimer's

It is an interesting discovery that may usher in a new hippie movement as scientist at the Scripps Research Institute found that the active ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, inhibits the formation of amyloid plaque. The amyloid plaques on the brain are the primary marker for Alzheimer's disease.

It may take many years for evidence to pile high enough for experts to reach a consensus on any one treatment for Alzheimers. In the meantime, Alzheimer's treatment will continue to rely on documented evidence.

How Close Are We to Curing Alzheimer’s?

Researchers are working hard to understand the mechanics of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. So, how close are we to finding a cure?

The Health Benefits of Klamath Blue Green Algae

Klamath blue-green algae is located in Upper Klamath Lake in Klamath Falls, Oregon. It is harvested during the summer months when the blue-green algae is at full bloom. This strain of algae is called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) and is now considered the new super food, with more protein and chlorophyll than any food source known.

Klamath blue-green algae is a whole food rich in Vitamin B-12, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Chlorophyll, Beta-Carotene. It also contains Essential and Non-essential amino acids, protein, and trace minerals the body requires to promote cell growth and cell regeneration. It is also instrumental in assisting the immune system as well as enhancing brain function and balancing emotions. Beta carotene is essential for sight and for fighting the aging process and high levels of protein are ideal for use in weight loss.

In a clinical study led by Dr Scogilo, concentrated extract of Klamath blue-green algae was given to 20 women with menopausal symptoms for a period of two months. Dr Scoglio found that the use of the algae significantly improved the symptoms associated with menopause. Improvement showed a range of 30% to 40% improvement with depression, self-esteem, anxiety, and in the women's general overall health. Klamath blue-green algae has also been shown to increase energy and relieve symptoms of chronic fatigue, arthritis, PMS, and reduce mood swings.

Many Doctors are now recommending the use of algae in the treatment of alzheimer's and other nervous system functions. In Germany, doctors are using algae to treat children with ADHD instead of the traditional Ritalin. Klamath blue-green algae is considered a far superior algae than other brands. It is produced and harvested in Upper Klamath Lake and is certified organic. They use low temperature drying methods to ensure the preservation of nutrients and minerals, and have on site quality testing. It is definitely a great product that is provided by nature.
