Scientific American Has Second Thoughts About Fluoride

Editors for Scientific American believe recent studies suggest that fluoride raises the risks of disorders affecting teeth, bones, the brain and the thyroid gland, and in general “scientific attitudes” about fluoridation may be shifting.

"Fluoride, the most consumed drug in the USA, is deliberately added to 2/3 of public water supplies theoretically to reduce tooth decay, but with no scientifically-valid evidence proving safety or effectiveness," says lawyer Paul Beeber, president of the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation.

Meanwhile, according to environmental reporter and director of New York University's Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program Dan Fagin, "There is no universally accepted optimal level for daily intake of fluoride."

After analyzing hundreds of fluoride studies, researchers found that fluoride:

  • Alters endocrine function, especially in the thyroid
  • Causes dental fluorosis in young children
  • May lower IQ
  • May increase the risk of bone fractures
Because scientific evidence suggests that water fluoridation is ineffective and dangerous to health, over 1,200 professional are now urging Congress to stop water fluoridation.

Dr. Mercola Dr. Mercola's Comments:
If more Americans knew that fluoride, which many dentists STILL mistakenly promote as the panacea for healthy teeth, is also the active toxin in rat poisons and cockroach powder, I suspect they would feel vastly different about ingesting it via drinking water and toothpaste.

But FINALLY the tides do seem to be turning.

In 2005, eleven unions within the EPA publicly called for a ban of water fluoridation, over concerns that it may cause bone cancer. And in 2006, the American Dental Association warned parents of infants not to use fluoridated water when mixing baby formula.

When you begin to examine the evidence surrounding water fluoridation, this gradual retraction makes perfect sense.

As award-winning journalist Christopher Bryson revealed in his book The Fluoride Deception, there has been a multi-tiered effort -- or as Bryson says, an abuse of power -- by military and industry scientists and public health officials to shamelessly promote fluoride to the dentistry field and the American public with little regard to the implications it would have on human health.

Just what are those potential implications?
  • An increased risk of bone cancer
  • Fluorosis, a discoloring of your teeth and breakdown of their enamel (between 30 percent and 50 percent of children have dental fluorosis on at least two teeth in “optimally fluoridated communities”)
  • An increased risk of osteoporosis
  • Developmental problems such as lower IQ
But that’s not all. According to Paul Connett, PhD:

1. Fluoride accumulates in your bones and makes them more brittle and prone to fracture. Lifetime exposure to fluoride will contribute to higher rates of hip fracture in the elderly.

2. Fluoride accumulates in your pineal gland, possibly lowering the production of melatonin, a very important regulatory hormone

3. There are serious concerns about a connection between fluoridation and the current epidemics of both arthritis and hypothyroidism.

4. In animal studies fluoride at 1 ppm in drinking water increases the uptake of aluminum into your brain.

5. Counties with 3 ppm or more of fluoride in their water have lower fertility rates.

6. The fluoridating agents most commonly used in the United States not only increase the uptake of lead into children's blood but are also associated with an increase in violent behavior.

Of course, the main reason why fluoride is reportedly added to the U.S. water supply in the first place is to prevent cavities. Yet, data compiled by the World Health Organization shows no difference in tooth decay in countries that use fluoridated water compared with countries that don’t use fluoridated water. So not only is fluoride unsafe, it is ineffective as well.

Get That Fluoride Out of Your Water!

If you are receiving your water from a municipal water supply in the United States, your water is probably fluoridated -- and a simple carbon filter will not remove it.

You must filter your tap water with a reverse osmosis filter to remove fluoride, and remember to use this water not only for drinking but also for washing fruits and veggies, making ice cubes and cooking.

You can also join the fight against water fluoridation by supporting the Fluoride Action Network’s petition to end water fluoridation. It’s already been signed by over 1,200 professionals, including a Nobel Prize winner, three officers in the union representing professionals at EPA headquarters, the executive board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, leading fluoride researchers, and medical, dental, scientific and environmental professionals from around the world.

To voice your opinion against water fluoridation, simply send this immediate e-mail to your senators and representative.

Aspartame & Aspartame Poisoning

Aspartame, the artificial sweetener used to make Nutrasweet / Equal and sometimes labeled as phenylalanine in products, has been the subject of controversy - both because of its safety and the circumstances surrounding its approval. Considering possible connections between aspartame and diseases such as brain tumors, brain lesions, and lymphoma, and taking into account alleged conflicts of interest during the approval process, you owe it to yourself to learn the facts - not simply what the lobbyists and manufacturer want you to know. Before you begin exploring DORway, As a primer before entering the site, check out the following videos and links:

Aspartame & Rumsfeld | Aspartame On FOX New | Dr. Blaylock On Aspartame | Aspartame, Cancer & Kids | Aspartame On Wikipedia

DORway's Mission - Anti Aspartame Activism

Why DORway? DORway stands for David Oliver Riet'z WAY of paying back the Internet for providing the small, hard-to-find (and oblique) aspartame article he nearly missed, but that he credited with extending his life. That file was the 1996 FDA list of 92 symptoms of aspartame poisoning. This site contains about 800 Web pages of solid documentation showing that aspartame is neither a decent diet aid, nor was it ever proven to be safe for human consumption! Aspartame must be removed from our diet, but only you, the consumer, can effect its removal. In creating DORway, Dave's primary concern lay with the 250,000,000 unknowing victims (Monsanto's own figure) - all of whom are in some (guaranteed) stage of "aspartame disease," and who, as he once did, may desperately NEED this aspartame information. But even with over four million visitors (as of Nov. 23, 2003), DORway has reached but a small percentage of these folks. Please pass this FREE health-restoring and perhaps life-saving information to everyone you care about!

Aspartame Poisoning - The cure is FREE

The "cure" for those with "aspartame poisoning" is FREE. There can be nothing "controversial" about eliminating something from one's diet and waking up feeling better.

Could You Have Aspartame Poisoning? Take the 60-Day Challenge

Try the FREE at-home 60-day NO-aspartame self-test, and simply observe the results. All we ask is that each and every visitor tell at least TWO others about DORway and about the dangers of Aspartame. And if they have Internet access, capture and use the aspartame help.txt info file that has a good overview of DORway and commented links to the aspartame articles on this huge site.

Aspartame Poisoning - NOT an Internet Hoax opened Searle's "Pandora's" book of facts on aspartame during September of 1996. For over four years Monsanto (who bought Searle in 1985), their many PR and law firms, visited many thousands of times (documented by IP addresses). The FDA, CDC and other entities visited, as well. The highly litigious Monsanto was unable to find anything to use against the site in an effort to close it down and relieve the growing pressures on its dying aspartame cash cow. Obviously, they cannot argue with the documentation (the most damning of which comes from the FDA and sworn testimony).

While two anti-aspartame Web sites (1996) grew to tens of thousands (as of October, 2001, had over 80,000), and while Nutrasweet's 28 million pounds of aspartame sold during 1996 slipped to only 20 million pounds during 1998, Monsanto sought to counter the truth (and their negative "good growth") with pro-aspartame WEB sites. When the "Nancy Markle" Email appeared during December, 1998, Monsanto and friends panicked. Monsanto, FDA, ADA, IFIC, MSFacts, TIME, CNN, LA Times, and a lot more who stood to LOSE if aspartame were recalled, ALL JOINED HANDS to call our information and the facts an "Internet hoax." Want a hint at the whole truth? Simply compare their messages, and then look for the $$$ connection. And the FDA? Just think future industry jobs and the fact that they are culpable of approving this cumulative toxic poison.

During mid February, 1999, while the many PRO aspartame articles seemed to be failing to turn the tide, Monsanto seemed to have made a momentous decision and stopped visiting DORway until after July. In April, they sold their Phenylalanine facilities (half of aspartame) to Great Lakes Chemical (GLC) for 125 million dollars. (A year later, GLC sued Monsanto for the 71 MILLION dollar shortfall in expected sales.) On the first of July, 1999, Monsanto put the Nutrasweet Co. on the auction block with TWO other companies - THREE of which had "combined sales of a billion dollars." So much for "good growth". It took another 10 months for Monsanto to find an investment firm that would relieve them of their growing burden.

Note: Dr. Friedman, who quit the FDA when Jane Henney was selected to become the permanent FDA commissioner (1999), elected to sign on with G. D. Searle as a senior vice president at a purported cushy $500,000 a year. He went to work for someone he was supposed to regulate. Could this new job be his reward for ignoring citizen complaints and defending aspartame and rbGH? Perhaps more importantly, does the U.S. have a congress that cares? Is there a justice department really interested in prosecuting fraud and genocide for huge profits? So far, the answers have all been NO!

DORway consists of hundreds of pages. Most TEXT files on this site can be obtained from the archives. For a good overview and commented links please download a copy of aspertame help.txt

Dave wants his DISCOVERY to be echoed by all aspartame users!

Aspartame is NOT a natural substance!
Aspartame is NOT a diet enhancement product!
Aspartame is NOT safe - for ANYONE!
Aspartame is NOT a food "additive"
Aspartame is an UNREGULATED and UNSAFE DRUG! (It was originally slated to be a peptic ulcer drug!)
Aspartame in liquids turns to FORMALDEHYDE above freezing!
Aspartame is even worse for DIABETICS!
Aspartame poisoning is cumulative (it adds up!)
Aspartame byproducts get stored in your FAT!
Aspartame has 92 "official" side effects (the worst is DEATH!)
Aspartame MIMICS a wide range of problems
Aspartame side effects are USUALLY MISDIAGNOSED! (By 21 doctors, in my case!)
Aspartame is unfit for human consumption!
Aspartame's approval by the FDA is A SHAMELESS tragedy!
Aspartame's approval for use in EVERYTHING is far worse!
Who are the culprits? FDA, Searle, Monsanto, NutraSweet and more!
The ONLY "CURE" is total exclusion from the diet!
TOTAL recovery may not be possible!
Only an irate and active PUBLIC can rid the world of this POISON!
If YOU have been affected... REPORT IT! GET INVOLVED!

Are Your Beauty Products Safe? Quiz

There has been a lot in the news lately about the lack of adequate health testing and warning information on beauty products. Many chemicals used in common soaps, shampoos, perfumes, cleansers, makeup, lipsticks, and more may be hazardous to our health.
SIMPLE SOLUTION: Take this quiz to find out if you may be using products that could adversely affect your health and well-being.

Take a look at the ingredients of the beauty products you use. Then answer the following questions True or False:

1. Sodium lauryl sulfate appears as an ingredient in my shampoo or other hair products.

2. I notice a combination of sodium lauryl sulfate and TEA (triethanolamine, DEA (diethanolamine), or MEA (monoethanolamine) in one or more of the hair products I use.

3. The word "methylparaben" appears on a label.

4. My product lists "fragrance" on the label.

5. I see the words "dibutyl phthalate, or DBP," or "diethylhexyl phthalate, or DEHP" on a label.

If you answered "True" to any of the questions, you may want to reconsider using those products. Here's why:

1. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a suspected liver or gastrointestinal toxiocant and sometimes causes eye and skin irritation, hair loss, and allergic reactions.

2. When sodium lauryl sulfate is combined with TEA, DEA, or MEA, it can cause the formation of nitrosamines--which are carcinogenic. You can prevent this by adding 1 teaspoon vitamin C powder and 1/4 teaspoon vitamin A powder for every 8 ounces of shampoo.

3. Methylparaben is a commonly-used disinfectant in many products. But recent research has shown that, when exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun, it actually causes wrinkles and liver spots.

4. Artificial fragrances have been linked to a wide variety of health problems. Artificial musk, for example, has been shown to weaken the immune system. See Artificial Musks Weaken Immune System. And check out this story about a lawsuit won by a woman who claimed that the perfume worn by her co-worker made her too sick to work: Can Perfumes Make You Sick?

5. Phthalates--plasticizers found in numerous cosmetics and other products--have been shown to be hormone disruptors that can cause birth defects and other harm. For more information, see One Plastic to Be Sure to Avoid and Where Phthalates Lurk.

Naturopathic Medicine believes that Cancer results from a weakened immune system and documentation shows that all cancer is either viral, fungal [candida is a fungus], and/or parasitic in origin. It is based on the principle that health disorders, regardless of severity, are most likely a result of nutritional imbalances as well as an accumulation of toxic substances. The immune system is weakened severely by chemo and radiation. When the nutritional and the acid-alkaline imbalances are corrected, and the body is adequately detoxified, the body is designed to heal itself while restoring normal organ function. Therefore, the first approach should be aimed at eliminating the infection and/or inflammatory process. I strongly suggest both the Oil Of Oregano P73 Physician's Strength and the Colloidal Silver 500ppm. Alternate the doses throughout the day.
Click here for a candida home test kit. Click here for a parasites home test kit.

Microorganisms [bacteria, virus, fungus, parasite infections] depend on a specific enzyme to breathe. Colloidal Silver is a catalyst that disables these enzymes, and as a result they die. To this day, there has been no recorded case of adverse effects from it when it is properly prepared. There also has been no recorded case of drug interaction with any other medication. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics which destroy beneficial enzymes, Colloidal Silver leaves the tissue-cell enzymes intact. Therefore, the first step in dealing with microorganisms is Colloidal Silver 500ppm. The dose and effectiveness of Colloidal Silver depend strictly on the quality and ppm strength of it. This particular brand is the strongest potency and highest quality on the market. The colloidal silver may be taken with or without food [1/2 tsp in 8-10 ounces water 3-5 times daily; spacing every 4 hours].

Oil Of Oregano P73 [polyphenol 73%] is the most extensively researched and the only tested oregano product on the market today. It is often used for drug-resistant bacteria. P73 formula is 3 times more concentrated than regular oil of oregano. This oregano oil has been tested against a variety of microorganisms [infections] and is found to exert a high degree of anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-viral and antibacterial actions. Oregano is such a potent anti fungal agent that it is capable of destroying even resistant fungal forms such as the mutated fungi which result from antibiotic therapy. It contains 3-20 times higher antioxidant activity than any other herb studied. It may be used on or in the body. This particular Oil of Oregano is the Physician's Strength formula, which is the strongest on the market. Beware of imitators! "Oreganum vulgare" is not the same as the P73 formula and has no similarities except taste. Beware also of thymol found in inferior grades. 5% or more of thymol makes it a harmful substance. Any oregano product with less than 40% carvacrol is inferior [P73 formula has 62%]. Dosage: 3 drops under tongue, hold 20 seconds, then swallow; take 3-4 times daily.

A common cause of brain, nerve and muscle disorders for women is excess estrogen in the body. Click here to see my Female Hormone Balance Naturopathic Protocol.

Aloe Vera [Aloe Immune]: Start out with 2000 mg per day and work up to more as tolerated: It is in the boosting of the immune system's response to antigens (foreign elements in the body) that Aloe has shown the most promise in treating cancer. It is clear from research conducted throughout the world over the past thirty years that Aloe Immune contains certain specific substances in the plant, which have very dramatic and impressive anti-cancer effects. Aloe vera has been demonstrated to enhance the immune system's response to cancer, promote the growth of new and healthy cells, and reduce the overall viral load within the body thereby revitalizing the body in its fight against the cancer. When radiation and chemotherapy are used, Aloe helps to minimize the damage done to the body by these treatments, which destroy healthy cells - particularly immune system cells - crucial to the body's recovery. The use of Aloe Immune enables the body to heal itself from cancer and the damage done to it by conventional treatment: the immune system is boosted, tumors shrink, metastases are reduced so the cancer does not spread, and new healthy cells begin to grow. Aloe vera contains a number of chemicals that enhance the activities of all of the immune system functions. 23 Polypeptides serve as immune system stimulators, helping to control a broad spectrum of immune system diseases and disorders. 20 Polysaccharides increase the action of white blood cells thus increasing the production of "killer" T-cells and interferon. They also chemically enhance the action of the "killer" T-cells. One of these polysaccharides, acelated mannose, has been patented as acemannen and is approved in Europe to stimulate the immune system.

Nurse Rene Caisse used an herbal formula called Essiac [Caisse spelled backwards] to effectively treat hundreds of people with cancer back in the 1920's. Cancer results from poor immunity. Poor immunity results from poor liver function. Essiac is used to detox all vital organs, especially the liver. A healthy liver is absolutely essential for a healthy immune system. In order to have a healthy immune system, you must detoxify your liver by cleansing it of stored toxins that accumulate over the years, resulting in a poor resistance to microbes, and culminate in various health disorders and diseases. In addition to its reputation for reversing cancer, it has since proven itself to be an effective remedy for many infections, inflammatory conditions, immune disorders other ailments as well. It is made up of 4 nutrient-rich herbs: burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm bark, and turkey rhubarb root. The combination of these herbs in proper ratio neutralizes blood toxins, detoxifies and strengthens the liver, and sooths irritations and inflammations. Essiac is used to strengthen and tighten muscles, organs and tissues; make bones, joints, ligaments, lungs, membranes strong and flexible, more durable and less vulnerable to stress. It is used to nourish and stimulate the brain and nervous system; to promote the absorption of fluids in the tissues; to remove toxic accumulation in the fat, lymph, bone marrow, bladder and alimentary canal. It is used to neutralize acids, absorb toxins in bowel and help to eliminate both. It is used to clear the respiratory channels by dissolving and expelling mucus; to relieve the liver of its burden of detoxification by converting fatty toxins into water-soluble substances that can be easily eliminated through the kidneys. It assists the liver to produce lecithin, which forms part of the myelin sheath [a white fatty material that encloses nerve fibers]. Is it used to reduce, perhaps eliminate, heavy metal deposits in tissues, especially those surrounding the joints, to relieve inflammation and stiffness; to improve the functions of the pancreas and spleen by increasing the effectiveness of insulin. It is used to purify and cool the blood; increase red cell production and keep them from rupturing; to increase the body's ability to utilize oxygen by raising the oxygen level in tissue cells. It is used to maintain the balance between potassium and sodium within the body so the liquid fluid inside and outside each cell is regulated; in this way, cells are nourished with nutrients and cleansed. It is used to convert calcium and potassium oxalates into a harmless form by making them solvent in the urine, and regulating the amount of oxalic acid delivered to the kidneys, thus reducing the risk of stone formulation in the gall bladder, kidneys or urinary tract. It is used to protect against toxins entering the brain; protect the body against radiation and x-rays; to relieve pain, increase the appetite and provide more energy with a sense of well-being. It is used to speed up wound healing by regenerating the damaged area; increase the production of antibodies like lymphocytes and T cells in the thymus gland, defenders of our immune system; inhibit and possibly destroy benign growths and tumors; and to protect the cells against free radicals. This particular Essiac tonic is certified organic [contains no pesticides, herbicides or preservatives], non-fumigated, non-irradiated, and totally non-toxic. The herbs are freshly-ground minutes prior to cold-pressing to ensure potency. It is fast-acting, alcohol-free, and professional strength. Herb manufacturers who cannot make these claims are selling inferior, impotent and harmful products. This formula is the highest quality of Essiac formulas available anywhere on the U.S. market today.

Instructions: Take the Essiac Tonic Liquid Drops on an empty stomach. Add 40 drops to 2-4 ounces of water 3 times daily. Wait 30 minutes before eating [If you have already eaten, wait 2 hours]. The number of drops in a bottle of liquid extract will vary depending on the viscosity (thickness) of the extract and its molecular weight. A 2-ounce bottle may range from 2000 drops to 2500 drops. Therefore this 2-ounce bottle will last 17-21 days, taking 120 drops per day. Take it for 32 days and then take one week off. Repeat the cycle as needed.

Cover your basic nutrient requirements with Liquid Vitamin/Mineral [Plant-Derived] Formula. The nutrients found in this highly absorbable great tasting supplement are essential for the health and healing on a cellular level. The nutrients are also needed for healing of inflamed tissue, nerves, muscles, bones, joints, brain, heart, hormone balance, teeth, gums, skin, hair, nails, and immune system. This formula is a balanced combination of vitamins, minerals [at least 74 plant derived hydrophilic minerals which are the same type found in fruits and vegetables], herbs, phytonutrients, antioxidants, electrolytes and other nutrients that needed for good health. The key factor to reversing disease is maintaining a balanced acid-alkaline state in the body. Minerals are alkaline because they relax the body from tightness, tension, stiffness, spasms, twitches, tics or jerkiness as in nervousness, anxiety, anger, fear, agitation, headaches, muscle cramps, menstrual cramps, arthritis, insomnia, constipation, heart palpitations, irregular heartbeats, high blood pressure, eye twitches, acne, plaque on teeth, plaque on heart and arteries due to cholesterol build-up, plaque on the brain [Alzheimer's], and an accumulation of estrogen building up inside the tissues [estrogen dominance]. This delicious liquid plant-derived supplement is superior in nutrients and absorption. The suggested adult dose is one ounce twice daily.

Calcium Magnesium Powder... Calcium and magnesium are essential minerals for healing inflamed tissue, muscles, bones, joints, heart, brain, hormone balance and nervous system. It is necessary for protein synthesis, and helps to prevent muscular cramps and numbness. It also helps prevent Cancer; provides energy; healthy RNA and DNA; promotes restful sleep. It fights aching joints, brittle nails, eczema, high cholesterol, heart palpitations, high blood pressure, insomnia, muscle cramps, nervousness, numbness in arms and legs, rheumatoid arthritis, rickets, tooth decay, dementia, convulsions, depression, delusions, hyperactivity, and more. Many people do not realize that calcium needs other minerals and trace elements for proper absorption. Therefore, taking plain Calcium supplements could cause more harm than good in the long run. Improper Calcium absorption can lead to kidney stones or other kidney problems and Calcium deposits in the joints. Magnesium has more health benefits attributed to it than any other mineral. It is mainly found in the bones and inside the cells, where it is necessary for the metabolism of and other nutrients. Magnesium is involved in regulating the acid-alkaline balance in the body, and for proper muscle function, including the heart. By far, the best calcium source and the best absorbed is Calcium gluconate, which is 90% vegetable, and is the purest injectable grade. When calcium is not properly absorbed, its deposits can lodge anywhere in the body and cause numerous diseases and disorders, including heart disease, arthritis and muscle disorders. The suggested adult dose for this delicious tasting supplement is one tsp twice daily.

With all the negative hype going on these days about the dangers of high-fat diet, do not confuse Omega 3 fatty acids [the good fat from vegetable oils] with Omega 6 fatty acids [the harmful saturated fat from animals]. Studies show that supplementing the diet with Omega-3 fish oils produced fewer quantities of a carcinogen associated with certain cancers. Omega-3 is critical for good health. However, the body cannot make it on its own. For this reason, omega-3s must be obtained from food sources. Omega 3 does not contribute to weight gain or other health problems. To the contrary, it actually normalizes metabolism, balances hormones, and reduces inflammation in bones, joints, muscles and all body organs. Actually both are good healthy fats that our bodies need, but the danger lies in an imbalanced ratio of the 2. We only need about 5 times the amount of Omega 6 than we do Omega 3, but the typical Western diet provides at least 40 times as much. It is this gross imbalance that results in weight gain, hormone and brain chemistry imbalance, heart disease, tumors, cancer, arthritis, brain and nervous system disorders, including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, certain kinds of mental illness, depression, post-partum depression, bi-polar disorder, alcoholism, schizophrenia, dementia (including Alzheimer's), poor concentration and memory, attention deficit disorder, and a host a other health problems. Omega-3 oils have been shown to significantly decrease the risk and ravaging health effects of cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, blood clotting, coronary artery disease, inflammatory processes, chronic lung diseases, asthma, immune disorders, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, Lupus erythematosus, brain and nervous system disorders, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, certain kinds of mental illness, depression, post-partum depression, bi-polar disorder, alcoholism, schizophrenia, dementia (including Alzheimer's), poor concentration and memory, and attention deficit disorder (ADD); poor eyesight, poor skin health, poor gastrointestinal health, type 2 diabetes, help to offset the harmful effects of radiation treatment and chemotherapy, weight problems (Omega 3 oils keep you satiated for 5-8 hours instead of 2-3 hours), normalize metabolism, balance hormones, rheumatoid arthritis, breast cancer, tumors, insulin resistance, menstrual cramps, psoriasis, eczema, stroke, dry skin, dry hair, brittle nails, hormone and brain chemistry imbalance, and much more.The healthy thing to do is cut down considerably on Omega 6 fats, and supplement the Omega 3 fats. The Omega 6 fats to reduce in your diet are hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated, saturated animal fats [beef, lamb, pork, sheep, veal], and animal organ meats [brain, heart, kidney, liver]. You should completely avoid trans-fatty acids fake fats, which include margarine, olestra, olean. These fats are synthetic and pose a major health threat to all vial organs, particularly the liver which attempts to metabolize them. Instead, use olive oil, coconut oil or grape seed oil to cook [Butter does not become toxic when heated, but because it is animal fat, it may tend to raise the level of "bad cholesterol" in the body]. Olive oil [Omega 3 and Omega 6], coconut oil and grape seed oil [Omega 3] are the only oils that do not become toxic when heated. You may also use flax oil [Omega 3] on salads, but it becomes toxic when heated. Due to increasing ocean pollution, the purity of the fish oil [Omega 3] is the single most important factor to consider when taking it as a supplement. This particular high-grade Omega 3 oil is thoroughly screened to assure no contaminants.

Death Begins In The Colon! "Probiotics" is a term that describes certain bacteria vital to the health of the intestinal tract. There are over 400 different known species of bacteria that inhabit the normal bowel -- including viruses, yeasts, and parasites. The intestinal tract is home to some 100 trillion microorganisms, but only a few of them are friendly. These friendly bacteria have been successfully used to rid the body of many dangerous microorganisms, and unlike drugs, herbs, vitamins and minerals, it is impossible to overdose on probiotics. Probiotics help to reduce. Without them, nutrients lose much of their effectiveness. Probiotic supplements should be taken daily as a line of resistance against pathogens. When illness strikes, it is usually because the beneficial bacteria have diminished [often due to poor diets that are high in sugar and fat, leaky gut, antibiotics, oral contraceptives, steroids, chemotherapy, or other medications]. Hundreds Of clinical studies have shown that probiotics can prevent and treat hundreds of common ailments. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, which are vital to the health of the intestinal tract. When intestinal probiotics are deficient, candida yeast infections and leaky gut syndrome result. Most probiotics on the market today can not survive the pH changes that take place in the intestines. The Lactobacillus Sporogenes in the Flora Immune Probiotics survives with or without oxygen, survives at room temperature, survives light, survives hydrochloric and bile acids; survives any pH change, and no refrigeration is necessary.

The dose is 2 ounces 2-3 times daily. It has:
1.19 amino acids [six times higher than bee pollen], including 8 that are essential for life...
NOTE: Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, the basis of life itself. They are a major constituent for the brain, nerve, muscle, blood, skin, and internal organs. Amino acids are precursors to dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and many other substances critical to health and well being. Besides building cells and repairing tissue, they form antibodies to combat invading bacteria and viruses; they are part of the enzyme and hormonal system; they build nucleoproteins (RNA and DNA); they carry oxygen throughout the body and participate in muscle activity. Amino acids have been found to be extremely useful in weight control, depression fighting, muscle building, proper hormonal activity, and proper function of the immune system. Amino acids are necessary for growth and cellular replication throughout the body.
2.up to 21 minerals [the main ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus]
Note: Germanium is a trace mineral rarely found in foods
3.all 8 essential amino acids [such as isoleucine and tryptophan]

This particular fruit juice, taken in combination with the Liquid Vitamin/Mineral [Plant-Derived] Formula [both listed above], are rich natural sources of B-complex vitamins, which play many roles in the human body, affecting both physical and mental health, but primarily they nourish the brain and nervous system, while calming the neuro-muscular system. They enhances circulation and assists in blood cell formation, which prevents certain forms of anemia, assist with carbohydrate metabolism and the production of hydrochloric acid, which is important for proper digestion and normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. They optimize cognitive activity, memory, learning and brain function, preventing and reversing depression and anxiety; have a positive effect on energy, stamina, growth, and normal appetite, needed for muscle tone of the intestines, stomach, and heart. They act as an antioxidant, enhancing immunity and protecting the body from cancer and the degenerative effects of aging, alcohol consumption, smoking. They aid in antibody production, cellular respiration, cell growth, alleviate eye fatigue and is important in the prevention and treatment of cataracts. They facilitate the use of oxygen by the tissues, promoting healthy skin, nails and hair. They help the utilization and absorption of iron, fats, carbohydrates and protein, required for proper digestion and absorption of foods. They play a role in the production of the adrenal hormones and vitamin utilization, help convert fats, carbohydrates and proteins into energy, prevent and reverse water retention, help in maintaining sodium and potassium balance, aid in the prevention of arteriosclerosis [hardening of the arteries]; important in the formation of lecithin and they help to reduce cholesterol levels,.inhibit the formation of a toxic chemical called homocysteine [attacks the heart muscle and allows the deposition of cholesterol around the heart muscle]. They promote healthy sweat glands, nerve tissue and bone marrow. They help make acetylcholine, [an important neurotransmitter in the brain]. They help protect against sunburn and skin cancer.

CoQ10 [Coenzyme Q10] Q-Gel® With Vitamin E: Recent findings substantiate the view that supplementation with CoQ10 can cause complete regression of certain tumors and is also used to offset effects of chemo and radiation. As for the immune system, CoQ10 stimulates T-Cells and is a potent antioxidant that scavengers free radicals [they cause degenerative diseases]. Anyone with cancer should maintain a CoQ10 level above 3.5 ug/ml. CoQ10 enhances energy within the mitochondria, which is every cell's "power plant". It is considered essential for the health of all the body's cells, tissues and organs. It increases serum vitamins E, A and C, and is used for a wide variety of degenerative diseases. It helps to protect the brain from free radical damage, helps reduce clogged arteries of the heart, is beneficial for heart disease [hypertension, angina, high blood pressure, arrhythmias, mitral valve prolapse, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, blood circulation]. In the heart, CoQ10 enables the heart muscle to pump blood much more efficiently,reduces blood viscosity and inhibits platelet aggregation. It also assists the heart and other muscles during stress. CoQ10 provides nutritional support to "spark" the breakdown of fats, sugars, and amino acids to help increase oxygen flow and cellular uptake, improve your metabolism, support increased stamina and vitality; fights fatigue, fights dementia and increases exercise tolerance It accelerates weight loss by burning off fat. Feel stronger, healthier and more alive.

Q-Gel is the ONLY duosoluble™ (Fat AND Water soluble) CoQ10 supplement and the only CoQ10 that exhibits 100% dissolution via USP testing standards. In other words, Q-Gel ensures that more CoQ10 gets into your system. Before Q-Gel was available, it took doctors carrying out clinical trials of CoQ10 several months to a year or more to achieve therapeutic blood levels of CoQ10. With Q-Gel, they are achieving therapeutic blood levels of CoQ10 in 3-4 weeks.

The nutritional supplements on this page are only half of the battle. The other half consists of eliminating substances that increase inflammation and toxicity, thereby interfering with healing:

Drugs prescribed for pain may offer temporary pain relief, but they actually worsen the condition because they inhibit cartilage repair. Long-term use of Aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) can also cause gastrointestinal ulcers and internal bleeding. People given corticosteroids to reduce inflammation can experience side-effects such as bruising, osteoporosis, hip fractures, cataracts, weight gain, susceptibility to infections, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Avoid sugar because it contributes greatly to the spread of cancer, body acidity and infection. These include fruits, fruit juices [frozen, bottled, canned], cakes, candy, chewing gum, cookies, ice cream, jams, jelly, Jell-O, marmalades, pastries, pies, preserves, sherbets, soft drinks, sugared fruit, tapioca puddings, white sugar, syrup, processed commercial yogurt, brown sugar, fructose sugar, corn syrup, soft drinks, honey, dehydrated cane juice granules, barley malt syrup, brown rice syrup, date sugar, maple syrup, sucanat, blackstrap molasses, sorghum, and most of all Aspartame [NutriSweeet] and Alcoholic Beverages [beer, wine and hard liquor all turn to sugar in the blood]...Xylitol And Stevia are 2 very healthy natural sweeteners that are perfectly OK use.

Avoid commercial dairy products [butter, cheese, milk, sour cream, whey, whipped cream, yogurt] because they contribute greatly to the spread of cancer and inflammation. Good substitutes are organic brown rice milk and nut milk.

Avoid white flour products because they contribute greatly to the spread of cancer,body acidity and inflammation. These include cakes, pies, cookies, pastries, donuts, breads, crackers, rolls, biscuits, muffins, pancakes, pizzas, gravy, processed pasta [spaghetti, macaroni, ravioli, lasagna, noodles, dumplings]... Instead Use Whole-Grain Flour [Wheat, Brown Rice, Oat, Barley, etc]

Avoid processed table salt. It disrupts the body's normal pH, brain chemistry, hormonal balance, muscle function, and fluid levels. Use organic sea salt instead.

Avoid Processed Meats with toxic preservatives such as nitrates and nitrites [wieners, bologna, salami, pastrami, corned beef, bacon, ham, sausage, hot links]. They contribute greatly to the spread of cancer and body acidity,.

Avoid ingesting chemicals such as nicotine, tobacco, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, processed foods, pre-packaged foods, refined foods, and tap water because they contribute to cancer, liver toxicity,body acidity, and free radical damage. Synthetic chemical and substances cause cellular havoc in an attempt to digest them. The body can only safely digest natural whole foods.

Avoid Personal items that are processed with any unnatural chemicals, dyes, inks, artificial fragrances. If any of the toxic substances are absorbed into your body, they are linked to a lowered immune system, increased inflammation, endometriosis, candida, and cancer...Undergarments, wash cloths, bath towels, bed linen, tissue paper, sanitary napkins, diapers, etc. Should be white, hypo-allergenic, made of cotton fibers. Menstruating females should use sanitary napkins instead of tampons, but if tampons are used they should be made with organically grown cotton fibers.

Avoid Toxic laundry and hygienic products...Use organic, or at least hypoallergenic [free of fragrances, dyes, inks] laundry and hygienic products that come in contact with your skin...Use 1 cup Clorox bleach with every laundry load to kill infections.

Avoid Toxic skin and hair products, toothpastes, mouthwashes, douche solutions, deodorants, make-up, nail polishes, nail glues, cosmetics, colognes, perfumes, lotions...The skin can only safely absorb natural ingredients. Unnatural ingredients contribute greatly to the spread of cancer.

Naturopathic Medicine believes that brain and neuro-muscular disorders, regardless of severity, are most likely a result of nutritional imbalances as well as an accumulation of toxic substances. When the nutritional and the acid-alkaline imbalances are corrected, and the body is adequately detoxified, the disorders remedy themselves while restoring normal organ function. The key factor to reversing disease is maintaining a balanced acid-alkaline state in the body. When this balance is maintained, the body is a well-oxygenated environment. An acid is a caustic erosive sour substance that has an electropositive charge. An acidic body [acidosis] does not oxygenate properly and the body's ability to heal itself is impaired. This impairment is characterized by sick blood, diseased cells, inflammation, excess body fat and suppressed immune functions. These conditions are ideal for contracting and breeding various microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeasts and
parasites. An imbalanced immune system is one that overfires, underfires or misfires. This results in lowered resistance to infections, colds, flu, herpes outbreaks, cold sores, cancer, low energy, asthma and allergies. Allergies are an inflammatory reaction triggered by over-acidity. On the other hand, an alkali is a substance that neutralizes acid, and has an electronegative charge. The nutritional supplements that I have suggested all have a very alkalizing effect on the body pH.

The potential ranges from 0 [extreme acidic] to 14 [extreme alkaline]. There is a tenfold difference between each number. For instance, pH 5 is 10 times more acidic as pH 6. Optimally, we want the fluids in our bodies to have a neutral pH level, which is 7.0-7.2. No health disorder or disease can possibly sustain itself when the pH is maintained in the neutral zone. At this level, the body is highly oxygenated; it detoxifies and heals itself; its cells are energized; and it has a strong immunity to all diseases.

A pH less than 5.3 indicates an inability to assimilate vitamins or minerals. Since most of the body is water-based (50-60%), the pH level has profound effects on all body chemistry, health and disease. All regulatory mechanisms [including breathing, circulation, digestion, hormonal production] serve the purpose of balancing pH by removing caustic metabolized acid residues from body tissues without damaging living cells. If the pH deviates too far to the acid side or too far to the alkaline side [alkalosis], cells become poisoned by their own toxic waste and die. Just as acid rain can destroy a forest, and alkaline wastes can pollute a lake, an imbalanced pH corrodes all body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of our veins and arteries like corrosives eating into marble. If left unchecked, an imbalanced pH will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain.

Everyone has a unique body timetable for healing, which is based on their current level of toxicity, nutritional imbalance, as well as compliance to the dietary suggestions and taking the nutritional supplements.

Use Stevia instead of processed sugar

Sugar Tips

Sugar is found in so many of the foods found in our grocery stores and even natural food stores. Added to food primarily as refined cane sugar (including brown sugars) and high-fructose corn syrup (one of the new leaders of sugar consumption), which is very inexpensive. Sugar cane, when grown organically, pressed, and dried, creates pure, unprocessed living sugar. You can purchase this in health food stores. It is a healthier choice than refined sugar. White table sugar, however, is grown with toxic pesticides, and chemicals, and then processed, stripping sugar of all its nutritional value. It is then heated, destroying any living vitality that it had. Foods that are high in sugars should be used only as occasional 'treats' in the diet, not as a main component of our food consumption. See more about white processed sugar in Chapter 6 of the Natural Cures book.

Traditional Chinese Medicine views the desire for sugar, or the sweet flavor, as a craving for the mother (yin) energy; a craving that represents a need for comfort or security. In Western cultures, we have turned sugar into a reward system to the degree that many of us have been conditioned to need some sweet treat to feel complete or satisfied. For most of us, sugar is a symbol of love and nurturance.

As infants, our first food is lactose, or milk sugar. Over-consumption and daily use of sugar is the first compulsive habit for most everyone with addictions later in life. Simple sugar, or glucose, is what our body, our cells and brain, use for fuel for energy. Some glucose is stored in our liver and muscle tissues as glycogen for future use; excess sugar is stored as fat for use during periods of low-calorie intake or starvation. If we don't exercise or take periods of low-calorie intake, the fat never disappears.

White sugar is a product that has such powerful adverse effects on the body it could be classified as a drug, and treated as such. If you are 'hooked,' make a clear plan for withdrawal, while working emotionally to eliminate the habit. Our responses to certain flavors, and the feelings we get from them, are usually conditioned habits that we have gotten used to. If you do crave sugar, there are specific supplements that can help curb cravings as well as help the body to better metabolize sugars, which will also help reduce sweets cravings. Most alternative practitioners can give you supplement suggestions, though the classic ones used are as follows: B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium and magnesium. Chromium helps our body utilize the sugars more efficiently, and is best used in the morning and at about 3:00 pm. Also, the amino acid, L-glutamine, taken 2-3 times per day helps to feed the brain and reduce sugar (and alcohol) cravings. Follow suggested dosage found on the side of the bottle.

You can also try another of the numerous sugar alternatives mentioned in last week's “Tip,” Stevia, which is known as the “sweetest substance on Earth.” A member of the Chrysanthemum family, it is native to Paraguay, and has been used for over 1500 years by the native Guarani Indians. Since the 1970s, Japan has subjected stevia extract to extensive safety testing and has found it to be without health risks. They now incorporate it in numerous food products including candies, soft drinks, ice cream, gum, and a large multitude of products. As a sugar substitute, it is available as a concentrated liquid, crushed leaf, or concentrated white powder. It contains natural compounds - specifically, stevioside and rebaudioside A, that are estimated to be 150 to 400 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia sweetens without calories; tastes sweeter than honey; yet, is about as fattening as water.

Studies show that when added to your diet on a regular basis, stevia has been reported to provide: pancreas nourishment, blood sugar regulation, making it not only safe for diabetics but also beneficial, stabilization of high blood pressure decreasing hypertension, digestive aid, minimization of hunger sensations, cravings for sweets or fatty foods, shorter recovery time from cold and flu, and other ailments. Stevia may be used in cooking and baking as a natural sweetener, and children may enjoy dessert recipes without the risk of weight gain, tooth decay or hyperactivity. To convert from sugar to stevia in your recipes, the following ratio is recommended: To replace 1 cup sugar, use ½ teaspoon Stevia powdered extract, or, 1 teaspoon Stevia liquid concentrate; for 1 tablespoon sugar, use 1/32 teaspoon extract or 6-9 drops liquid concentrate. For a wonderful and refreshing drink, try lemonade with no sugar rush, calories or negative health effects; just add 1 cup of lemon concentrate (or freshly squeezed lemon juice) to 2 quarts/liters water, add 50 drops of liquid stevia or ½ tsp. of powder concentrate (equal to 1 cup refined sugar!!), stir, refrigerate, and enjoy the best tasting calorie free lemonade you've ever had, loaded with healthy enhancing Vitamin C, and the blood sugar stabilizing all natural herb, stevia.

Although still not approved for use in the United States as a commercial food additive by the FDA, stevia is available in health food stores for personal use as a sweetener and as a dietary supplement. Give stevia a try (or, one of the other sugar alternatives), and you may find that life is about to get a whole lot sweeter!

The Animals Lament

The Animals Lament


Every year 45 billion animals are killed worldwide for human consumption. For example, in Germany it is 332,100,000 roasting chickens, 40,200,000 pigs, 24,000,000 soup chickens, 20,300,000 turkeys, 14,200,000 ducks, 4,100,000 cows, 1,000,000 geese, 900,000 sheep or goats and 7,500 horses. And in the US the numbers are even greater: In 2002, for example, a total of 10,108 million animals were killed and raised for food. These included for instance, 41 million cattle and calves, 116 million pigs, 4.2 million sheep, 304 million turkeys, 25,6 million ducks, as well as 2,133 million broilers and 484 million laying hens.

The Pig Ghetto: “In groups of 80 to 200 animals, we pigs are kept on gratings in nearly constant darkness. We stand on split flooring with no straw on it, which often leads to dam­aged joints. We are produced as if in a factory. The breeding sows are artificially inseminated in individual pens. During their 15 weeks of pregnancy, they are kept vegetating in very dimly lit tiny concrete stalls. To give birth they are tied up in special birthing pens. They can hardly move, and can merely stand up and then lie down again. So it is impossible for them to care for their young.”

The Hen “Torture Chamber”: “We laying hens vegetate away our brief lives in Hen Torture Chamberwindowless halls where we live in group cages up to 8 stories high. Twenty-two hens share 1 square meter of space; and the stench is unbearable. Already after 14-18 months of the hen torture chamber, our egg-laying perform­ance is not high enough, and so we land in the soup pot. How­ever, up to 20% of us do not even survive these 1 1/2 years: We die of stress, infec­tion, bone dis­ease, etc.”

The Calf Prison: “We are shut into narrow wooden pens, The Calf Prisonwhere we can hardly move. Right up until our murder, which you call slaughter, we are not given more than 1 square meter of space – this is how those who fatten us maximize their prof­its. Instead of mother’s milk we get only a fatty, white brew, consisting of skim-milk powder, tallow, whale fat and lots of salt. We get terribly thirsty from all the salt and since we do not get any water, we drink even more of the salty brew. In this way, we are fattened to our slaughtering weight in a very short time. During our whole brief and lonely life, we never even see a green meadow. We see the sun for the first time on our way to the slaughterhouse.”

The Turkey Death Cell: “We turkeys in factory farming suffer even more than Turkey Death Cellchickens being fat­tened for slaughter. Since our breast is the most desirable and expensive piece, our skeleton, legs and liga­ments are bent under the weight of our flesh because they cannot keep up with the accelerated growth of our body. At the end of our 22-week lives, we slide around or we lie on our extra-wide and heavy breast. Just like the hen torture chambers, our beaks and those of ducks are cut off – without anesthesia. Pain and constant irritation are the result - comparable to having your human lips cut off.”

Miserable transport: “You transport us thousands of kilometers all through the continent. We are crammed into the tightest Miserable Transportspace for days, without water, without food, in unbearable heat, in icy cold, with broken bones or open wounds. Many of us do not survive the transportation. We die of thirst; we are crushed; we die of sev­ere injuries or from panic and stress. On the way to the slaughterhouse, many of us are so weak that we can’t even walk 100 meters fur­th­er. So that we move more quickly, we are prod­ded with metal hooks in the mouth, eyes or anus.”

Brutality in the Slaughter­house: “When the butchers slit us open, cut our Brutallity in Slaughterhousethroats or saw off our legs we are often still conscious. We bellow on the hooks; we twitch in death anxiety and under hellish pain. And the animals next in line have to witness the final agonies of their brothers and sisters, knowing that it will be exactly the same for them. But you know no mercy. You call this reasonable, because you want to eat us.”

The Execution: “You try to numb us Pig Electric Tongspigs with electric tongs. The pain shoots through our head, our whole body, like a bolt of lightening. You think we don’t feel anything, when after the electric shock you throw us into boiling water to burn the hair and soften our hides for skinning. But your numbing doesn’t work for very long. We experience on our living body how our lungs fill with boiling hot water ... a terrible death!”

Hunting Terror from Ambush:

“The hunters set up a trap and lure us wild pigs with feed bait, in order to better shoot Wild Pigus – comfortably and cowardly from outside the confines of the trap. But one cannot always talk about a ”quick death.” Some of my friends and relatives are shot and wounded in the open. ‘Expansion bullets’ tear blood and in­testines out of severely wounded, fleeing animals.”

Deer Hunted

“Over 60% of the deer hunted do not die immediately. Many drag themselves along through the forest for hours and days, severely injured, with intestines hanging out. Fawns watch helplessly as their mothers bleed to death.”

“A special favorite is the hunting drives against us field Field Harehares. Even though we can run so fast, we don’t have a chance. When the hunter’s round of buckshot hits, we scream in pain like little human children. Many hit hares turn several somersaults in the air, screaming from pain until they lie dead.”

The consumption of meat, sausage, fish and poultry is a risk factor for numerous illnesses. The one who wants to live a healthy life should avoid these products. Seen from a dietary-physiological point of view, meat is a superfluous form of nutrition. There is no longer any doubt among experts that one’s dietary needs can met with a veg{etari}an diet. This is true for all ages With some diseases, for example, high blood pressure, rheumatism or metabolic disorders, a vegetarian way of life is the most sensible therapeutic measure there is. How each person wants to decide about eating meat is up to him, but he should be clear about the consequences.
