Slow acting protein extract from fruit pulp of Momordica charantia with insulin secretagogue and insulinomimetic activities.
Biol Pharm Bull. 2006 Jun;29(6):1126-31--Authors: Yibchok-anun S, Adisakwattana S, Yao CY, Sangvanich P, Roengsumran S, Hsu WH
The protein from Thai bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) fruit pulp was extracted and studied for its hypoglycemic effect. Subcutaneous administration of the protein extract (5, 10 mg/kg) significantly and markedly decreased plasma glucose concentrations in both normal and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats in a dose-dependent manner. The onset of the protein extract-induced antihyperglycemia/hypoglycemia was observed at 4 and 6 h in diabetic and normal rats, respectively. This protein extract also raised plasma insulin concentrations by 2 fold 4 h following subcutaneous administration. In perfused rat pancreas, the protein extract (10 microg/ml) increased insulin secretion,but not glucagon secretion. The increase in insulin secretion was apparent within 5 min of administration and was persistent during 30 min of administration. Furthermore, the protein extract enhanced glucose uptake into C2C12 myocytes and 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Time course experiments performed in rat adipocytes revealed that M. charantia protein extract significantly increased glucose uptake after 4 and 6 h of incubation. Thus, the M. charantia protein extract, a slow acting chemical, exerted both insulin secretagogue and insulinomimetic activities to lower blood glucose concentrations in vivo.

Bitter Melon Extract Decreased Breast Cancer Cell Growth
ScienceDaily (Feb. 23, 2010) — Bitter melon extract, a common dietary supplement, exerts a significant effect against breast cancer cell growth and may eventually become a chemopreventive agent against this form of cancer, according to results of a recent study.---"Our findings suggest that bitter melon extract modulates several signal transduction pathways, which induces breast cancer cell death," said lead researcher Ratna B. Ray, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Pathology at Saint Louis University. "This extract can be utilized as a dietary supplement for the prevention of breast cancer."---Results of this study are published in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.---Previous research has shown Momordica charantia, also known as bitter melon, to have hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects, according to Ray. Because of these effects, the extract is commonly used in folk medicines as a remedy for diabetes in locales such as India, China and Central America, according to the researchers.---Using human breast cancer cells and primary human mammary epithelial cells in vitro, Ray and colleagues found the mechanism of bitter melon extract significantly decreased proliferation, that is, cell growth and division, and induced death in breast cancer cells. These early results offer an encouraging path for research into breast cancer.---"Breast cancer is a major killer among women around the world, and in that perspective, results from this study are quite significant," said Rajesh Agarwal, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Colorado, Denver School of Pharmacy. "This study may provide us with one more agent as an extract that could be used against breast cancer if additional studies hold true."---According to Agarwal, the Cancer Research associate editor for this study, the simple study design, clear-cut results and the overall importance of these findings in breast cancer prevention makes this research different from previous research.---However, he stressed that "this study is only a step towards establishing the cancer preventive efficacy of bitter melon against breast cancer." Additional studies are needed to further understand the molecular targets of bitter melon extract in cancer cells, as well as for establishing its in vivo efficacy. Agarwal gave a note of caution, stating that while these results do provide hope as an anti-cancer agent, it is important to establish the validity of these results in animal models before adding them to one's diet to inhibit breast cancer cell growth.---Ray and colleagues are currently conducting follow-up studies using a number of cancer cell lines to examine the anti-proliferative effect of the extract. They are also planning a preclinical trial to evaluate its chemopreventive efficacy by oral administration.---Bitter melon extract is cultivated in Asia, Africa and South America. Extract of this vegetable is being popularized as a dietary supplement in Western Countries, since it is known to contain additional glycosides such as mormordin, vitamin C, carotenoids, flavanoids and polyphenols.

A Ton Of Bitter Melon Produces Sweet Results For Diabetes
ScienceDaily (Mar. 27, 2008) — Scientists have uncovered the therapeutic properties of bitter melon, a vegetable and traditional Chinese medicine, that make it a powerful treatment for Type 2 diabetes.--Teams from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica pulped roughly a tonne of fresh bitter melon and extracted four very promising bioactive components. These four compounds all appear to activate the enzyme AMPK, a protein well known for regulating fuel metabolism and enabling glucose uptake.--"We can now understand at a molecular level why bitter melon works as a treatment for diabetes," said Professor David James, Director of the Diabetes and Obesity Program at Garvan. "By isolating the compounds we believe to be therapeutic, we can investigate how they work together in our cells."People with Type 2 diabetes have an impaired ability to convert the sugar in their blood into energy in their muscles. This is partly because they don't produce enough insulin, and partly because their fat and muscle cells don't use insulin effectively, a phenomenon known as 'insulin resistance'.--Exercise activates AMPK in muscle, which in turn mediates the movement of glucose transporters to the cell surface, a very important step in the uptake of glucose from the circulation into tissues in the body. This is a major reason that exercise is recommended as part of the normal treatment program for someone with Type 2 diabetes.--The four compounds isolated in bitter melon perform a very similar action to that of exercise, in that they activate AMPK.--Garvan scientists involved in the project, Drs Jiming Ye and Nigel Turner, both stress that while there are well known diabetes drugs on the market that also activate AMPK, they can have side effects.--"The advantage of bitter melon is that there are no known side effects," said Dr Ye. "Practitioners of Chinese medicine have used it for hundreds of years to good effect."Garvan has a formal collaborative arrangement with the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica. In addition to continuing to work together on the therapeutic potential of bitter melon, we will be exploring other Chinese medicines. Professor Yang Ye, from the Shanghai Institute and a specialist in natural products chemistry, isolated the different fractions from bitter melon and identified the compounds of interest.--"Bitter melon was described as "bitter in taste, non-toxic, expelling evil heat, relieving fatigue and illuminating" in the famous Compendium of Materia Medica by Li Shizhen (1518-1593), one of the greatest physicians, pharmacologists and naturalists in China's history," said Professor Ye. "It is interesting, now that we have the technology, to analyse why it has been so effective."--"Some of the compounds we have identified are completely novel. We have elucidated the molecular structures of these compounds and will be working with our colleagues at Garvan to decipher their actions at a molecular level. We assume it's working through a novel pathway inside cells, and finding that pathway is going to be very interesting."--The results are published online March 27 in the international journal Chemistry & Biology.

ØRecipe for Sugar Reduction and Insulin Regulating---take bitter melon ( dry form) and add ¼ cup of this into a pot of water ( 2 pint or 1 litre) add 1-2 strips of cinnamon bark---1 tablespoon of juniper berry-- add 1-2 strips of seaweed or 1tsp of dry—1 tsp of nettle—and boil together---let cool and drink this several times a day---Should see sugar come out in the urine as well as in other areas---may see insulin levels go down as well—Supplements to take with this would be alpha lipoic acid + acetyl L carnitine ( 200 mgs of the ALA---and 500mgs of the Acetyl l carnitine ) –Minerals should be zinc 30 mgs+ manganese 5-9 mgs+ magnesium citrate 200 mgs+ potassium 200 mgs ( or 1 cap at 99mgs 2 times a day )—the big key here is to lay off all-SOY—CANOLA---SUGAR ( processed) ( all breads and cereals today processed or using treated materials are toxic to us )—Definitely No Bananas ( unless eaten black due to the sugar levels going down and the fermented minerals rise –No grapes—Raisons---Watermelons—High Fructose Corn Syrup Definitely out---No pasta or rice or cereal For 5 days and see the impact now do this for a month and slowly introduce bread that are rye—barley---oat---buckwheat---quinoa---amaranth---millet---these will still be cereals but maybe less toxic and less manipulated then the mainstream grains
Facing Meltdown in the USA
---Please circulate widely, keeping all links unchanged, and submit to your government representatives demanding an end to GM crops and support for non-GM organic agriculture---Two traits account for practically all the genetically modified (GM) crops grown in the world today: herbicide-tolerance (HT) due to glyphosate-insensitive form of the gene coding for the enzyme targeted by the herbicide, 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS), derived from soil bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens, and insect-resistance due to one or more toxin genes derived from the soil bacterium Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis). Commercial planting began around 1997 in the United States, the heartland of GM crops, and increased rapidly over the years. By now, GM crops have taken over 85-91 percent of the area planted with the three major crops, soybean, corn and cotton in the US ] (see Table 1), which occupy nearly 171 million acres. –The ecological time-bomb that came with the GM crops has been ticking away, and is about to explode. --HT crops encouraged the use of herbicides, resulting in herbicide-resistant weeds that demand yet more herbicides. But the increasing use of deadly herbicide and herbicide mixtures has failed to stall the advance of the palmer super weed in HT crops. At the same time, secondary pests such as the tarnished plant bug, against which Bt toxin is powerless, became the single most damaging insect for US cotton. Monster plants that can’t be killed It is the Day of the Triffids - not the genetically modified plants themselves as alluded to in John Wyndham’s novel -but "super weeds that can’t be killed" , created by the planting of genetically modified HT crops, as seen on ABC TV news. --The scene is set at harvest time in Arkansas October 2009. Grim-faced farmers and scientists speak from fields infested with giant pigweed plants that can withstand as much glyphosate herbicide as you can afford to douse on them. One farmer spent US$0.5 million in three months trying to clear the monster weeds in vain; they stop combine harvesters and break hand tools. Already, an estimated one million acres of soybean and cotton crops in Arkansas have become infested.********** Personnel Observation---I think it is the balance of nature trying to end the anomally—so things are actually working to remove this genetic abnormality and the defence mechanism is acting as it shoud to remove what was not intended to be used as a plant or food source******** The palmer amaranth or palmer pigweed is the most dreaded weed. It can grow 7-8 feet tall, withstand withering heat and prolonged droughts, produce thousands of seeds and has a root system that drains nutrients away from crops. If left unchecked, it would take over a field in a year. --Meanwhile in North Carolina Perquimans County, farmer and extension worker Paul Smith has just found the offending weed in his field , and he too, will have to hire a migrant crew to remove the weed by hand. The resistant weed is expected to move into neighbouring counties. It has already developed resistance to at least three other types of herbicides. herbicide-resistance in weeds is nothing new. Ten weed species in North Carolina and 189 weed species nationally have developed resistance to some herbicide. A new herbicide is unlikely to come out, said Alan York, retired professor of agriculture from North Carolina State University and national weed expert

Canada On The Verge Of Approving Enviropigs - Millions Of Canadians Will Soon Be Eating Mouse-Pig Hybrids
The Canadian government is on the verge of approving the introduction of extremely bizarre genetically modified pigs into the Canadian food supply. These new mouse/pig hybrids have been dubbed "enviropigs" and are being touted as being much better for the environment. This new "breed" of Yorkshire pigs was created by scientists in Ontario at the University of Guelph, who spliced in genes from mice to decrease the amount of phosphorus produced in the pigs' excrement. So soon millions of Canadians will be eating meat from mouse/pig hybrid creatures and most of them will not even realize it. It is expected that approval for this new "brand" of pigs will be sought in the United States as well. But this is hardly the first time that scientists have mixed two kinds of animals together in an attempt to create creatures that will be beneficial for humanity. --The truth is that scientists around the world are now creating bizarre hybrid "animals" on a regular basis. Over the past couple of decades the field of genetic modification has made extraordinary advances, and now researchers and scientists seem very eager to exploit these new technologies.So what kind of weird, mysterious creatures have scientists been creating? --Well, what would you think of a cat that glows in the dark? -They really exist.--A genetically modified cat named Mr. Green Genes was the very first fluorescent cat created in the United States. Under an ultraviolet light, Mr. Green Genes puts off a very strange bright green glow.---So perhaps in the future not only can your cat cuddle up to you and keep you warm - it could also serve as a night light.--But U.S. researchers were not even the first ones to do this to cats. A team of scientists in South Korea had previously created a cat that glows red under ultraviolet light.--Now why in the world would scientists do this kind of a thing?---Well, because they can. But scientists have created creatures that are even more bizarre than fluorescent cats. -One Canadian company is actually producing spider goats. Yes, it is true. A Canadian company known as Nexia has created goats that are genetically modified to be part spider.---The reason for this bizarre genetic modification is to get goats that will produce spider silk protein in their milk. This spider silk protein is then collected, purified and spun into incredibly strong fibers. Reportedly, the fibers that are produced are more durable than Kevlar, more flexible than nylon, and stronger than steel.--This substance has industrial and military applications that are apparently extremely valuable.--But when you tell most people that spider goats exist they will just laugh at you.--If that is the response that you get when you tell someone about spider goats, just show them the following video.--The YouTube video posted below contains a television news report that discusses how these spider goats are created and what this company is doing with the spider silk that these spider goats are producing.... So does all of this tampering with the environment disturb you?--After all, at least scientists are not creating human/animal hybrid creatures, right? Wrong. The truth is that human/pig hybrid creatures will soon be legally grown inside of the United States. This is being publicly announced and almost nobody is getting upset about it. What is being described as a "cutting edge" new program will actually produce pigs with human genes in them. These hybrid pigs will be "grown" in order to produce organs for transplants into humans. Does this bother you? Perhaps it would bother you more if you knew exactly where these pigs are to be grown. In Missouri. That's right - human/pig hybrids are going to be raised right in the middle of the United States. So is it possible that such creatures could end up in our food supply? No? You don't think they would ever do that to us? Don't be so sure. The FDA has already announced that the offspring of cloned animals could be in our food supply right now and that there is nothing that they can do about it. Of course they have plenty of time to conduct military style raids of Amish farmers, but apparently they have no time to figure out if our food supply is tainted by cloned animals. Yes, this is really happening. In fact, the FDA has said that it is basically a non-issue to them. Of course most Americans eat tomatoes with roach genes in them and most Americans eat corn with insecticide grown inside of it on a regular basis, so why should we get upset about what is in our meat? So does any of this seem incredibly evil to you? It should. That is because all of this is incredibly evil. Creating bizarre hybrid creatures is not a new thing. Did you know that the 3000 year old book of Jasher (a book of ancient history that is quoted in the Biblical books of Joshua and II Samuel) speaks of genetic engineering that was going on in the days of Noah? It is true. How they did it remains a great unexplained mystery, but according to ancient sources this is apparently what was going on. Jasher 4:18 tells us this.... "and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord" According to the book of Jasher, God was not pleased at all that they were corrupting the wonderful environment that He had created for all of us.--This mixing of animals is also reflected in the ancient book of Enoch. The book of Enoch is directly quoted by the book of Jude in the New Testament, and it tells us a great deal about what was going on in the world before the Flood. Enoch 7:14 tells us this.... And they began to sin against birds, beasts, reptiles, and fish, to eat their flesh one after another, and to drink their blood. So apparently they were not only mixing animals together - they were eating them too. Just like we are starting to do. But instead of learning the lessons of the past we are making the same mistakes. We think that we are so "technologically advanced", but the reality is that we are just indulging in the same foolishness as they did in the ancient world. So what is so wrong with genetic modification? The truth is that once you let the genie out of the bottle you can't put it back in. We have found that out with genetically modified crops. Natural strains can literally be bred into extinction once strains of genetically modified crops become widespread enough. We may think that we are improving the environment through our reckless experimentation, but what if our best efforts go horribly, horribly wrong? The unintended consequences of our reckless genetic meddling may be far worse than any of us ever imagined. The reality is that God said not to mix plants and animals together like this. But we are doing it anyway. Hopefully we are not completely destroying the one and only earth that we have in the process.
There has been no global warming since 1995
Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits--- There has been no global warming since 1995
·Data for vital 'hockey stick graph' has gone missing
·There has been no global warming since 1995
·Warming periods have happened before - but NOT due to man-made changes
Data: Professor Phil Jones admitted his record keeping is 'not as good as it should be'
The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.---Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers. --Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.---The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.----Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.---And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.---The admissions will be seized on by sceptics as fresh evidence that there are serious flaws at the heart of the science of climate change and the orthodoxy that recent rises in temperature are largely man-made.----Professor Jones has been in the spotlight since he stepped down as director of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit after the leaking of emails that sceptics claim show scientists were manipulating data.---The raw data, collected from hundreds of weather stations around the world and analysed by his unit, has been used for years to bolster efforts by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to press governments to cut carbon dioxide emissions.--
·MAIL ON SUNDAY COMMENT: The professor's amazing climate change retreat
Following the leak of the emails, Professor Jones has been accused of ‘scientific fraud’ for allegedly deliberately suppressing information and refusing to share vital data with critics.---Discussing the interview, the BBC’s environmental analyst Roger Harrabin said he had spoken to colleagues of Professor Jones who had told him that his strengths included integrity and doggedness but not record-keeping and office tidying.Mr Harrabin, who conducted the interview for the BBC’s website, said the professor had been collating tens of thousands of pieces of data from around the world to produce a coherent record of temperature change.---That material has been used to produce the ‘hockey stick graph’ which is relatively flat for centuries before rising steeply in recent decades.---According to Mr Harrabin, colleagues of Professor Jones said ‘his office is piled high with paper, fragments from over the years, tens of thousands of pieces of paper, and they suspect what happened was he took in the raw data to a central database and then let the pieces of paper go because he never realised that 20 years later he would be held to account over them’.Asked by Mr Harrabin about these issues, Professor Jones admitted the lack of organisation in the system had contributed to his reluctance to share data with critics, which he regretted.
But he denied he had cheated over the data or unfairly influenced the scientific process, and said he still believed recent temperature rises were predominantly man-made.---Asked about whether he lost track of data, Professor Jones said: ‘There is some truth in that. We do have a trail of where the weather stations have come from but it’s probably not as good as it should be.----‘There’s a continual updating of the dataset. Keeping track of everything is difficult. Some countries will do lots of checking on their data then issue improved data, so it can be very difficult. We have improved but we have to improve more.’---He also agreed that there had been two periods which experienced similar warming, from 1910 to 1940 and from 1975 to 1998, but said these could be explained by natural phenomena whereas more recent warming could not. He further admitted that in the last 15 years there had been no ‘statistically significant’ warming, although he argued this was a blip rather than the long-term trend.---And he said that the debate over whether the world could have been even warmer than now during the medieval period, when there is evidence of high temperatures in northern countries, was far from settled.---Sceptics believe there is strong evidence that the world was warmer between about 800 and 1300 AD than now because of evidence of high temperatures in northern countries.---But climate change advocates have dismissed this as false or only applying to the northern part of the world.---Professor Jones departed from this consensus when he said: ‘There is much debate over whether the Medieval Warm Period was global in extent or not. The MWP is most clearly expressed in parts of North America, the North Atlantic and Europe and parts of Asia.---For it to be global in extent, the MWP would need to be seen clearly in more records from the tropical regions and the Southern hemisphere. There are very few palaeoclimatic records for these latter two regions.---‘Of course, if the MWP was shown to be global in extent and as warm or warmer than today, then obviously the late 20th Century warmth would not be unprecedented. On the other hand, if the MWP was global, but was less warm than today, then the current warmth would be unprecedented.’--Sceptics said this was the first time a senior scientist working with the IPCC had admitted to the possibility that the Medieval Warming Period could have been global, and therefore the world could have been hotter then than now.---Professor Jones criticised those who complained he had not shared his data with them, saying they could always collate their own from publicly available material in the US. And he said the climate had not cooled ‘until recently – and then barely at all. The trend is a warming trend’.---Mr Harrabin told Radio 4’s Today programme that, despite the controversies, there still appeared to be no fundamental flaws in the majority scientific view that climate change was largely man-made.---But Dr Benny Pieser, director of the sceptical Global Warming Policy Foundation, said Professor Jones’s ‘excuses’ for his failure to share data were hollow as he had shared it with colleagues and ‘mates’.--He said that until all the data was released, sceptics could not test it to see if it supported the conclusions claimed by climate change advocates.---He added that the professor’s concessions over medieval warming were ‘significant’ because they were his first public admission that the science was not settled.

Types of Water
Dr. John R. Christopher--Dr. Allen E. Banik, in the book "The Choice is Clear" gives us a listing of the nine kinds of water
This is saturated with calcium, iron, magnesium, and many other inorganic minerals. All water in lakes, rivers, on the ground, in deep wells, is classified as hard water. (Many city systems take water from rivers or lakes, or reservoirs supplied with mountain water; they erroneously call their supplies "soft water" but it is soft only in comparison with water which is harder.) Practically all kinds of "bottled" water is hard water
This is water which has not been treated in any way. It may be hard or soft - as hard as lime water, or as soft as rain water. Raw water contains millions of viruses and bacteria, and is densely inhabited in every drop. Chemicals dumped into our rivers may cause cancer, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Boiling helps remove some of the germs, but concentrates the inorganic minerals. Other germs are carried into a fertile element for rapid and lusty propagation of germs and viruses already in the body.
This water is soft in comparison with water which is harder. It may contain many trace minerals and chemicals, viruses and bacteria. It is not to be confused with "softened water." Soft water may be classified as water which is harder than distilled water.
This has been condensed from the clouds. The first drop is distilled water. But when it falls as rain, it picks up germs, dust, smoke, minerals, lead and many other atmospheric chemicals. By the time rain water reaches the earth it is so saturated with dust and pollutants it may be yellowish in color. Water is supposed to act as an atmosphere purifier. If we had no air pollution, we would have far less pollution in our drinking water.
This is frozen rain. Freezing does not eliminate any germs. All snowflakes have hardened mineral deposits. Melt the cleanest snow and you will find it saturated with dirt, inorganic minerals, germs and viruses.
This water has passed through a fine strainer, called a filter. Some calcium and other solid substances are kept in the filter; there is no filter made which can prevent germs from passing through its fine meshes. Each pore of the finest filter is large enough for a million viruses to seep through in a few moments. A home filter usually only picks up suspended solids and is effective for the time, maybe only for hours, until it is filled up. Then it is ineffective even for removing suspended solids, and at the same time becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.
Water processed by the de-ionized method effectively removes minerals, and compares to distilled water in this respect. However, it does become a breeding ground for bacteria, pyrogenic matter and viruses. The fault in this system lies in the resin beds which can become notorious breeding grounds. Therefore it is not wise to have this possibility exist in your drinking water.Furthermore, deionization does not remove synthetic chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, insecticides or industrial solvents.
This is water that has first been turned into steam so that all of its impurities are left behind. Then through condensation, it is turned back into pure water. It is the only pure water - the only water free from all contamination. Distilled water may well be considered the only pure water on earth. ---Water is so valuable to the entire system of the human body that it is wise to use only the Best. Use pure steam distilled water for health and well being. ---I personally did not know anything about distilled water until just a few years ago. My knowledge of it came in a rather odd way. I had been sitting in a wheelchair (and occasionally up on crutches) for approximately nine months-with both arthritis and also from an accident I had been in a few years before when I had received a concussion on my skull. Build-up of a calcification condition from the former fractured area had put pressure on the brain area causing a paralyzed condition on the right side of my body. I had lost my health-food store (the original "The Herb Shop") in Orem, Utah, and was broke, so a friend offered me free rent to open another one in Salt Lake City. --Here was a ridiculous situation - a "health" doctor opening a health-food store in a wheel chair. The business started to grow slowly and one day as I sat there, a young fellow came in to do business with me and as he left he dropped a copy of "The Choice Is Clear", by Dr. Banik, saying, "I'll bet this will help you!" As I read the booklet through, I was completely sold on distilled water, so called up a company and had some delivered to me. I started using it faithfully and was out of the wheelchair in a very short time. Over the years I had helped patients leave their wheelchairs and had used the same procedure on myself that had cured them. It worked for them but not for me, until I combined my procedure with "pure" water
FMY ADDITION--- Here is another water type or system for better water
In the production of bottled mineral water, the water passes through a RO water processorto remove pollutants and microorganisms. In European countries, though, such processing of Natural Mineral Water (as defined by a European Directive) is not allowed under European law.(In practice, a fraction of the living bacteria can and do pass through RO membranes through minor imperfections, or bypass the membrane entirely through tiny leaks in surrounding seals. Thus, complete RO systems may include additional water treatment stages that use ultraviolet light or ozone to prevent microbiological contamination.) In the water treatment industry there is a chart of types of contaminants, their sizes and which ones pass through the various types of membranes. Membrane pore sizes can vary from 1 to 50,000 angstroms depending on filter type. "Particle filtration" removes particles of 10,000 angstroms or larger. Microfiltration removes particles of 500 angstroms or larger. "Ultrafiltration" removes particles of roughly 30 angstroms or larger. "Nanofiltration" removes particles of 10 angstroms or larger. Reverse osmosis is in the final category of membrane filtration, Hyperfiltration," and removes particles larger than 1 angstrom
Some Solutions to ANTI-PAIN!!!
We have all heard the word OUCH! That HURT! YEOOOOW! And as we get older it seems like the PAINS of LIFE seem to take longer to go away. If you watch the idiot box or what I call the dummy down box the first thing they would have is do is reach for drugs. I will talk about the top 3 drugs that are most advertised: Acetaminophen, others Ibuprofen, and others Aspirin..And these all have side effects. Let's take a look at what you are doing with these Chemicals. Acetaminophen is used to relieve mild to moderate pain from headaches, muscle aches, menstrual periods, colds and sore throats, toothaches, backaches, reactions to vaccinations (shots), and to reduce fever. Ibuprofen is another pain killer and is used for to relieve pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by a breakdown of the lining of the joints) and rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of the joints). It is also used to relieve mild to moderate pain, including menstrual pain (pain that happens before or during a menstrual period). Nonprescription ibuprofen is used to reduce fever and to relieve mild pain from headaches, muscle aches, arthritis, menstrual periods, the common cold, toothaches, and backaches Aspirin is used for rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of the joints), osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by breakdown of the lining of the joints), systemic lupus erythematosus (condition in which the immune system attacks the joints and organs and causes pain and swelling) and certain other rheumatologic conditions (conditions in which the immune system attacks parts of the body). Nonprescription aspirin is used to reduce fever and to relieve mild to moderate pain from headaches, menstrual periods, arthritis, colds, toothaches, and muscle aches. Nonprescription aspirin is also used to prevent heart attacks in people who have had a heart attack in the past or who have angina (chest pain that occurs when the heart does not get enough oxygen). Nonprescription aspirin is also used to reduce the risk of death in people who are experiencing or who have recently experienced a heart attack. Nonprescription aspirin is also used to prevent ischemic strokes (strokes that occur when a blood clot blocks the flow of blood to the brain) or mini-strokes (strokes that occur when the flow of blood to the brain is blocked for a short time) in people who have had this type of stroke or mini-stroke in the past. Aspirin will not prevent hemorrhagic strokes (strokes caused by bleeding in the brain). Now as you can see you would be hard pressed to say no to any of these non prescriptions so strongly advertised.. But lets take a look see what is really going on....Side effects...let's start with Acetaminophen ...here is one list of side effects..The most serious side effect is liver damage due to large doses, chronic use or concomitant use with alcohol or other drugs that also damage the liver. Other issues can berash, hives, itching, swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs, hoarseness, difficulty breathing, or swallowing. So we have liver damage , and other bodily reactions...the stronger reactions can be nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, sweating, extreme tiredness, unusual bleeding, or bruising, pain in the upper right part of the stomach, yellowing of the skin or eyes, flu-like symptoms. Some of you might have had other side effects that I have not mentioned. Now there are other things that can work as effectively, with out all of these issues. Lets take ibuprofen This medicine can increase your risk of life-threatening heart or circulation problems, including heart attack or stroke. This risk will increase the longer you use ibuprofen. Do not use this medicine just before or after having heart bypass surgery (also called coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG).Seek emergency medical help if you have symptoms of heart or circulation problems, such as chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath, slurred speech, or problems with vision or balance. Here are some other things this medication can do: unexplained weight gain fever blisters rash itching hives swelling of the eyes, face, throat, arms, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs difficulty breathing or swallowing hoarseness excessive tiredness pain in the upper right part of the stomach upset stomach loss of appetite yellowing of the skin or eyes flu-like symptoms pale skin fast heartbeat cloudy, discolored, or bloody urine back pain difficult or painful urination, blurred vision, changes in color vision, or other vision problems, red or painful eyes, stiff neck, headache confusion, aggression. Now lets look at Aspirin, here are some things that can be distressing: nausea vomiting stomach pain heartburn hives rash swelling of the eyes, face, lips, tongue, or throat wheezing or difficulty breathing hoarseness fast heartbeat fastbreathing cold, clammy skin ringing in the ears loss of hearing bloody vomit vomiting material that looks like coffee grounds bright red blood in stools black or tarry stools stomach bleeding. Here are some symptoms of over use or taking to much: Symptoms of overdose may include: burning pain in the throat or stomach vomiting decreased urination fever restlessness irritability talking a lot and saying things that do not make sense, fear or nervousness, dizziness, double vision uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body, confusion, abnormally excited, mood hallucination (seeing things or hearing voices that are not there), seizures, drowsiness, loss of consciousness, for a period of time. This is just some of the things that make me go hmmmm...eh! Wonder what else these things will do. And the dosages are high as well aspirin is usually about 350 milligrams a day and a minimum of 4-6 a day which is about 1.4 grams to 2.15 grams ( 1400 mgs -2150 mgs) that is a lot of Drug , the other 2 are in the same ball park for dosing, and higher. Now no one does the natural pain remedies, and it is said because due to social conditioning, no one thinks in terms in natural or balancing, to stop what causes the pain in the first place. Now pain can be caused by a lot of things, being over massed ( bigger then you should be for your frame) straining your self or over exerting, stress, toxic build up from chemicals or toxins in the environment. Over eating, which produces toxicity in the intestinal tract, injuries from sport or work related injuries, hurting your self in some form or fashion, poor circulation, ...and the list goes on. The key here is, analyzing what is the root cause. Even taking drugs ( prescription drugs) can cause you duress and or pain. So the thing required is, what's he cause? And from their we can find the natural balance and rectify this drug free. Give you an example let's say you strain yourself doing something physical or you over extend yourself working off a cpu or a managerial type work, and you find your self in pain, something as simple as a rub to get the blood going can do the trick , something as simple as taking a magnesium supplement could do this for you as well, you could take a digestive enzyme when you have pain, you can use a specific amino acid for chronic pain DLPA or Dl phenyalanine, you could use something like red pepper and gingko, tumeric and pineapple, garlic and ginger, galangal and pineapple , baking soda with magnesium and arginine with acv, you can use essential oils like lavender, savoury, thyme, eucalyptus, peppermint, black pepper, you can mix and match these oils and apply them to an area where they would be effective in treating the situation. Another thing to do is quit being exposed to toxins, that is subjecting you to pain, if you cannot, then you have to use things that can neutralize the toxic effect of what you are being exposed too, an example of this is using high end antioxidants that will bind and remove these things allowing your bodies to flow as it should without an impediments. Increasing enzyme intake to assist the antioxidants to remove unwanted matter in the body, increasing other supplements that reinforce the antioxidants that you are taking. A good example would be NAC with vitamin C a 2: 1 ratio of C to NAC, and by adding vitamin B1 you get the benefit of the body being strengthened and other negative materials , such as lead , which can cause you pain, is being removed. You can use tumeric and bromelain, with serrapeptase, you can also apply galangal with solomon seal and peppermint, you can increase your protein intake if you have pains as a result of labouring jobs, you can increase other supplements such as creatine and baking soda and applecider vinegar, you can apply ginger and garlic with acv, utilizing good fats such as wheat germ oil and EPO. You could also FAST, this will allow your body to rest, realign itself and remove excess toxins by the way it can remove and reduce the excess. So again the whole key is what's the cause?
I will give some recipes, that might rectify the situation:
Stomach Pain;Galangal tea, Galangal and ginger tea, ginger and peppermint tea, ACV 2 table spoons in glass in warm water, and drink. Cream of tartar and ACV, Baking soda and ACV, Digestive ENZYMES, HCL, B6, acidopholus, yogurt and cinnamon, thyme tea, GSE, eating a peeled apple, pear or any fruit that has a good fibre to it, these are some examples. There are lots Muscle Pain, cayenne pepper and ginger, mixed in honey, DLPA, Serrapeptase, trypsin enzyme, digestive enzyme taken between meals. Magnesium and malic acid, hydrochloric acid, B1, benfotiamine with an enzyme combo, NAC, l cysteine taken with vitamin C, use essential oils that have peppermint, wintergreen( pain reliever) black pepper, add 1-2 drops of each essential oil into 1 ounce container, add a carrier oil, and masage externally. You can use DMSO, MSM in combo with grape seed, or pycnogenol Headache: release the blocked circulation that might be as a result of neck stress, utilize anything that will increase both circulation and oxygen into the head as well as a detoxifier of the arterial blockages or system support when doing this, a good example would be arginine and acv with magnesium in 2 ounces of warm water and baking soda, Water, utilize more if needed, add more enzyme to your diet and take digestive enzymes when a head pain should occur, utilize a ginger, pineapple juice extract as well, make a papaya drink with ginger or galangal, make thyme and rosemary tea, These are some examples of different options you have that can reduce or rectify pain, remember a lot of these remedies I mentioned not only will increase oxygen and blood flow, they will turn of the pain receptors and remove what is causing the pain to register, repair and regenerate healthy tissue, and keep things in check from fungal bacterial, viral to environmental exposure as well. Minimize again anything synthetic, packaged or modified as best as you can ..if you cannot avoid it all the avoid most and take what you need to neutralize the negative impact of what you are being exposed to. Other things that I have tried are adding a dhea or a testosterone cream directly on a inflammed muscle, this usually shuts off the prostaglandin that is causing the flare up. ( prostagladins are hormones that trigger the release of another enzyme that, causes a pain response ) Another option I have done as well is use DMSO directly on the area where I have hurt myself. You can even use a castor oil pack mixed with specific essential oils or a fused oil with specific herbs that work on pain or blood flow or inflammation. A castor oil pack is a white clean cloth soaked in castor oil, wrung out and applied directly to an area and then with another towel wrap that around the soaked oil cloth, usually within 15 minutes the soaked oil cloth is dry, and sometimes you see it discolour as a result of the removal toxins in the area, where you applied it. I have made my own fused pepper oil and when it was strained and cooled applied it directly on the area for relief. To make your own fused oil just take any oil you use for cooking, such as olive oil or almond or even palm or coconut oil, put into a glass container, add red pepper or black or both, you can also add fresh ginger juice or ginger powder to this, put the contents together in the oil and into a glass, then into a pot of water, let boil, and settle. Once the oil is coloured to the colour of the pepper, remove from jar by straining and letting cool. Make sure you put it in glass, and not plastic. All these methods here can impact you by alleviating the issue or rectify the cause of your pain. Remember as well that rest and proper sleep will do wonders for you, by sleeping your body regenerates and utilizes the things you have consumed, allowing for an emptying out and resting internally or to be better able to rejuvenate and heal your system. Always remember 90 % of our problems are usually toxic issues, and the best thing to do is to clean that up, and utilizing those things that are highly enzymatic, highly antioxidant, and foods effective in removing unwanted build up in our bodies. If these methods can be applied, and MAINTAINED!!! which is key to any kind of restoration, then you will see desired results in healing from pain. The Key here is that with what has been given, and what more is available, you will have to find out what really works for you, the combos or the single things, depending on how much damage is done.
Recipe :Muscle Pain, cayenne pepper and ginger or Galangal, mixed in honey----1 tsp of ginger or a ½ a teaspoon of Galangal, ¼ tsp of cayenne or African birds eye pepper and 1/1/2 tablespoon of Honey mix and consume a ¼ tsp and increase as needed,

Anti-collagenase, anti-elastase and anti-oxidant activities of extracts from 21 plants.
BMC Complement Altern Med. 2009 Aug 4;9(1):27 Authors: Thring TS, Hili P, Naughton DP
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Owing to their roles in tissue remodelling in health and disease, several studies have reported investigations on plant extracts as inhibitors of proteinases and as anti-oxidants. METHODS: The anti-ageing and anti-oxidant properties of 23 plant extracts (from 21 plant species) were assessed as anti-elastase and anti-collagenase activities and in selected anti-oxidant assays along with phenolic content. RESULTS: Anti-elastase activities were observed for nine of the extracts with inhibitory activity in the following order: white tea (~89%), cleavers (~58%), burdock root (~51%), bladderwrack (~50%), anise and angelica (~32%). Anti-collagenase activities were exhibited by sixteen plants of which the highest activity was seen inwhite tea (~87%), green tea (~47%), rose tincture (~41%), and lavender (~31%). Nine plant extracts had activities against both elastase (E) and collagenase (C) and were ranked in the order of white tea (E:89%, C:87%) > bladderwrack (E:50%, C:25%) > cleavers (E:58%, C:7%) > rose tincture (E:22%, C:41%) > green tea (E:10%: C:47%) > rose aqueous (E: 24%, C:26%) > angelica (E:32%, C:17%) > anise (E:32%, C:6%) > pomegranate (E:15%, C:11%). Total phenolic content varied between 0.5 and 0.26 mg gallic acid equivalents (GAE)/mL with the exception of white tea (0.77 mg GAE/mL). For anti-oxidant assessment, the Trolox equivalent anti-oxidant capacity (TEAC) assay revealed activity for all extracts. White tea had the highest activity equivalent to ~21 microM Trolox for a 6.25 microg aliquot. In addition, seven extracts exhibited activities [greater than or equal to] 10 microM Trolox with witch hazel (6.25 microg = 13 microM Trolox) and rose aqueous (6.25 microg = 10 microM Trolox) showing very high activities at low concentrations. A high activity for white tea was also found in the superoxide dismutase (SOD) assay in which it exhibited ~88% inhibition of reduction of nitroblue tetrazolium. High activities were also observed for green tea (86.41%), rose tincture (82.77%), witch hazel (82.05%) and rose aqueous (73.86%). CONCLUSIONS: From a panel of twenty three plant extracts, some one dozen exhibit high or satisfactory anti-collagenase or anti-elastase activities, with nine having inhibitory activity against both enzymes. These included white tea which was found to have very high phenolic content, along with high TEAC and SOD activities.

Phytoestrogens – Panacea or Poison?
The male species of tropical birds carries the drab plumage of the female at birth and "colors up" at maturity, somewhere between nine and 24 months. In 1991, Richard and Valerie James, bird breeders in Whangerai, New Zealand, purchased a new kind of feed for their birds, one based largely on soy protein.47 When soy-based feed was used, their birds "colored up" after just a few months. In fact, one bird food manufacturer claimed that this early development was an advantage imparted by the feed. A 1992 ad for Roudybush feed formula showed a picture of the male crimson rosella, an Australian parrot that acquires beautiful red plummage at 18 to 24 months, already brightly colored at 11 weeks old. ----Unfortunately, in the ensuing years, there was decreased fertility in the birds with precocious maturation, deformed, stunted and still-born babies, and premature deaths, especially among females, with the result that the total population in the avaries went into steady decline. The birds suffered beak and bone deformities, goitre, immune system disorders and pathological aggressive behavior. Autopsy revealed digestive organs in a state of disintegration. The list of problems corresponded with many of the problems the Jameses had encountered in their two children, who had been fed soy-based infant formula. ---Startled, aghast, angry…the Jameses hired toxicologist Mike Fitzpatrick to investigate further. Dr. Fitzpatrick’s literature review uncovered evidencethat soy consumption has been linked to numerous disorders, including infertility, increased cancer and infantile leukemia; and, in studies dating back to the 1950s,48 that genistein in soy causes endocrine disruption in animals. Dr. Fitzpatrick also analyzed the bird feed and found that it contained high levels of phytoestrogens, especially genistein. When the Jameses discontinued using soy-based feed, the flock gradually returned to normal breeding habits and behavior. ---The Jameses embarked on a private crusade to warn the public and government officials about soy foods, particularly the endocrine disrupting isoflavones (genistein and diadzen.) Protein Technologies International (PTI) received their material in 1994. ---In 1991, Japanese researchers reported that consumption of as little as 30 grams or 2 tablespoons of soybeans per day for only one month resulted in a significant increase in thyroid stimulating hormone.49 Diffuse goitre and hypothyroidism appeared in some of the subjects and many complained of constipation, fatigue and lethargy, even though their intake of iodine was adequate. In 1997, researchers from the FDA’s National Center for Toxicological Research made the embarrassing discovery that the goitrogenic components of soy were the very same isoflavones.50 ---Twenty-five grams of soy protein isolate, the minimum amount PTI claimed to have cholesterol-lowering effects, contains at least 50 mg of isoflavones. It took only 45 mg daily of isoflavones in premenopausal women to exert significant biological effects including reduction in hormones needed for adequate thyroid function. These effects lingered for three months after soy consumption was discontinued.51 ---One hundred grams of soy protein, the maximum suggested cholesterol-lowering dose (and the amount recommended by Protein Technologies International), can contain almost 600 mg of isoflavones,52 an amount that is undeniably toxic. In 1992, the Swiss health service estimated that 100 grams of soy protein provided the estrogenic equivalent of the pill.53 ---In vitro studies suggest that isoflavones inhibit synthesis of estradiol and other steroid hormones.54 Reproductive problems, infertility, thyroid disease and liver disease due to dietary intake of isoflavones have been observed for several species of animals including mice, cheetah, quail, pigs, rats, sturgeon and sheep.55 ---It is the isoflavones in soy that are said to have a favorable effect on postmenopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and protection from osteoporosis. Quantification of discomfort from hot flashes is extremely subjective and most studies show that control subjects report reduction in discomfort in amounts equal to subjects given soy.56 ---The claim that soy prevents osteoporosis is extraordinary, given that soy foods block calcium and cause vitamin D deficiencies. If Asians indeed have lower rates of osteoporosis than Westerners, it is because their diet provides plenty of vitamin D from shrimp, lard and sea food; and plenty of calcium from bone broths. The reason that Westerners have such high rates of osteoporosis is because they have substituted soy oil for butter, which is a traditional source of vitamin D and other fat-soluble activators needed for calcium absorption.
Birth Control Pills for Babies
But it was the isoflavones in infant formula that gave the James family the most cause for concern. In 1998, investigators reported that the daily exposure of infants to isoflavones in soy infant formula is six to eleven times higher on a body weight basis than the dose that has hormonal effects in adults consuming soy foods. Circulating concentrations of isoflavones in infants fed soy-based formula were 13,000 to 22,000 times higher than plasma estradiol concentrations in infants on cows’ milk formula.57 ---Approximately 25% of bottle-fed children in the US receive soy-based formula – a much higher percentage than in other parts of the Western world. Fitzpatrick estimated that an infant exclusively fed soy formula receives the estrogenic equivalent (based on body weight) of at least five birth control pills per day.58 By contrast, almost no phytoestrogens have been detected in dairy-based infant formula or in human milk, even when the mother consumes soy products. ---Scientists have known for years that soy-based formula can cause thyroid problems in babies. But what are the effects of soy products on the hormonal development of the infant, both male and female? Male infants undergo a "testosterone surge" during the first few months of life, when testosterone levels may be as high as those of an adult male. During this period, the infant is programmed to express male characteristics after puberty, not only in the development of his sexual organs and other masculine physical traits, but also in setting patterns in the brain characteristic of male behavior. In monkeys, deficiency of male hormones impairs the development of spatial perception (which, in humans, is normally more acute in men than in women), of learning ability and of visual discrimination tasks (such as would be required for reading.)59 It goes without saying that future patterns of sexual orientation may also be influenced by the early hormonal environment. Male children exposed during gestation to diethylstilbesterol (DES), a synthetic estrogen that has effects on animals similar to those of phytoestrogens from soy, had testes smaller than normal on maturation.60 ---Learning disabilities and behavioral problems, especially in male children, have reached epidemic proportions. Soy infant feeding — which began in earnest in the early 1970s — cannot be ignored as a probable cause for these tragic developments. ---As for girls, an alarming number are entering puberty much earlier than normal, according to a recent study reported in the journal Pediatrics.61 Investigators found that one percent of all girls now show signs of puberty, such as breast development or pubic hair, before the age of three; by age eight, 14.7% of white girls and almost 50% of African-American girls had one or both of these characteristics. New data indicate that environmental estrogens such as PCBs and DDE (a breakdown product of DDT) may cause early sexual development in girls.62 In the 1986 Puerto Rico Premature Thelarche study, the most significant dietary association with premature sexual development was not chicken — as reported in the press — but soy infant formula.63 The Woman, Infants and Children (WIC) program, which supplies free infant formula to welfare mothers, stresses soy formula for African Americans because they are supposedly allergic to milk. ---The consequences of truncated childhood are tragic. Young girls with mature bodies must cope with feelings and urges that most children are not well-equipped to handle. And early maturation in girls is frequently a harbinger for problems with the reproductive system later in life – including failure to menstruate, infertility and breast cancer. Parents who have contacted the Jameses recount other problems associated with children of both sexes who were fed soy-based formula, including extreme emotional behavior, asthma, immune system problems, pituitary insufficiency, thyroid disorders and irritable bowel syndrome — the same endocrine and digestive havoc that afflicted the James’ parrots.
Dissention in the Ranks
Organizers of the Third International Soy Symposium would be hard pressed to call the conference an unqualified success. On the second day of the conference the London-based Food Commission and the Weston A Price Foundation of Washington, DC held a joint press conference in the same hotel to present concerns about soy infant formula. Industry representatives sat stony faced through the recitation of potential dangers and a plea from concerned scientists and parents to pull soy-based infant formula from the market. Under pressure from the Jameses,the New Zealand government had issued a health warning about soy infant formula in 1998. It was time for the American government to do the same. --On the last day of the conference, presentations on new findings related to toxicity sent a well-oxygenated chill through the industry’s giddy helium hype. Dr. Lon White reported on a study of Japanese Americans living in Hawaii. It showed a significant statistical relationship between two or more servings of tofu per week and "accelerated brain aging."64 Those participants who consumed tofu in midlife had lower cognitive function in late life and a greater incidence of Alzheimers and dementia. "What’s more," said Dr. White, "those who ate a lot of tofu, by the time they were 75 or 80, looked five years older."65 White and his colleagues blamed the negative effects on isoflavones, a finding that supports an earlier study in which post-menopausal women with higher levels of circulating estrogen experienced greater cognitive decline.66 ---Scientists Daniel Sheehan and Daniel Doerge from the National Center for Toxicological Research ruined PTI’s day by presenting findings from rat feeding studies indicating that genistein in soy foods causes irreversible damage to enzymes that synthesize thyroid hormones.67 "The association between soybean consumption and goiter in animals and humans has a long history," wrote Dr. Doerge. "Current evidence for the beneficial effects of soy requires a full understanding of potential adverse effects as well." Dr. Claude Hughes reported that rats born to mothers fed genistein had decreased birth weights compared to controls and onset of puberty occurred earlier in male offspring.68 His research suggested that the effects observed in rats "…will be at least somewhat predictive of what occurs in humans. There is no reason to assume that there will be gross malformations of fetuses but there may be subtle changes, such as neurobehavioral attributes, immune function and sex hormone levels." The results, he said "…could be nothing or could be something of great concern…if mom is eating something that can act like sex hormones, it is logical to wonder if that could change the baby’s development."69 ---A study of babies born to vegetarian mothers, published in January 2000, indicated just what those changes in baby’s development might be. Mothers who ate a vegetarian diet during pregnancy had a fivefold greater risk of delivering a boy with hypospadias, a birth defect of the penis.70 The authors of the study suggested that the cause was greater exposure to phytoestrogens in soy foods popular with vegetarians. Problems with female offspring of vegetarian mothers are more likely to show up later in life. While soy’s estrogenic effect is less than that of diethylstilbestrol (DES), the dose is likely to be higher because it’s consumed as a food, not taken as a drug. Daughters of women who took DES during pregnancy suffered from infertility and cancer when they reached their twenties.
What is Lacto-Fermentation?
Lacto-fermentation happens when the starches and sugars in
vegetables and fruit convert to lactic acid by a friendly lactic-acid producing
bacteria.--This produces not only a tangy, delicious product (like the
sauerkraut pictured above), but it also preserves it….. and does so much more
The health benefits of lacto-fermented fruits and vegetables are wonderful. I think we probably only know a small part of why they are so good for us. For example, unpasteurized sauerkraut and kimchi got a lot of buzz in recent years after some scientists found thatbirds fed kimchi or sauerkraut would often start recovering from the Avian Bird Flu!---Here’s what we know, when you lacto-ferment vegetables it increases in vitamins, it is more digestible and you get a plethora of good bacteria when you consume it!---"The proliferation of lactobacilli in fermented vegetables enhances their digestibility and increases vitamin levels. These beneficial organisms produce numerous helpful enzymes as well as antibiotic and anticarcinogenic substances. Their main by-product, lactic acid, not only keeps vegetables and fruits in a state of perfect preservation but also promotes the growth of healthy flora throughout the intestine."
Lacto-Fermentation: A Healthy Way to Preserve Your Harvest
Editor’s Note: If you’re gardening for survival, you’re no doubt setting food by with survival in mind. The following article describes a simple method for doing just that. Be sure to click on highlighted phrases for further related information. – John
History is not so much the story of great men as it is the story of outstanding foods and diseases. We know about Captain Cook because he took sauerkraut on his second round the-world trip. As a result, he and his crew did not suffer from scurvy, that devastating disease of sea voyages. The cabbage of his kraut was preserved by lacto-fermentation, a process of natural preservation revered for centuries before modern methods of pickling in vinegar or canning. This kraut was not only effective against scurvy; it kept through the whole voyage.--The advantage of modern food preservation lies in convenience plus a reliable flavor and consistency. Lacto-fermentation, however, is valuable for its enhanced health benefits. Modern techniques are based on sterilization. Lacto-fermentation is driven by beneficial, soil borne bacteria (lacto-bacilli) which:
A. break down the food, thus making it more digestible.
B. manufacture vitamins, increasing the nutritive value of the preserved food.
C. produce enzymes (specially energized molecules used for digestion and other metabolic processes).
D. produce natural antibiotics that protect the food from putrefying bacteria.
E. produce anti-carcinogenic compounds.
F. produce lactic acid.
Both lactic acid and vinegar preserve food by making it more acidic. Unlike vinegar, lactic acid regulates the pH of stomach acids, which tear down our food. Lactic acid then activates the metabolic processes that re-synthesize those nutrients into new, living substances the body can use. Lacto-fermented foods are not only a good source of beneficial bacteria for our intestinal tract, they also taste good. Making lacto-fermented vegetables is quite straightforward
RecipeC – Fermented Juice
make carrot juice and add either an acidopholis capsule or powder---or a vinegar to this and 1 tablspoon of sea salt in a 2 quart amount of carrot juice ( the salt protects against mold) allow to sit for 3 days or heat up to about 34 cel or 90 degree fahr or just allow to sit on the stove or oven when it is on and allow the juice just to ferment---when done---pour into a glass through either a filter bag or coffee filter and train through when strained throw away the coffee filter or wash the cloth strainer---Drink it straight up---will see an effect after a couple of days ---bowel cleansing and regulating---intestinal restoration—lipid antioxidant---lung support—brain---reproductive support---anti cancer effect—this effect can be applied to any juice or vegetable you may want to ferment to get your nutrition
Commentary on the Regulations we are all facing irrespective of where you live
New Regs that will strip you of your access based on this the way to reduce the access is to regulate it out of existence---things that have benefited people and who have seen the impact of the orthomolecular healing or herbal healing will now see a host of these supplements and remedies being disbanded or not allowed in the market place –because by a stroke of a pen those who are in charge and have no idea or knowledge of supplements or who are involved in the chemical industry( prescription drugs are nothing more then toxic chemicals being distributed by the medical field these days ---since none of them heal and almost all of them have detrimental side effects---I would call this chemical poisoning by the medical field )—This kind of legislation being formed outside the parameters of a countries autonomy is alarming—due to the fact legislation can be implemented in one country and then this implantation is then spread globally---without any due research or any consideration of environmental differences or health concerns of each individual area—this kind of legislation then will only induce more problems and deny people access that indigenously would be there and yet not being able to utilize as a result of a law in Europe that has nothing to do with Canada or the USA—Agenda 21 laws under the EFSA- or Vice Versa ---Laws that can be implemented in China or South America can impact your ability to utilize what is available in your own country---With the different things which impact environmental and personal issues on health the jurisdiction of regulations cannot be summed up as one rule fits all and this is exactly how this is being perpetrated---Scare tactics of contamination ( which are unfounded ) warnings of dangers that do not exist—regulations to make the consumer think that the gov’t is doing something---gov’t officials putting on ignorance and deception to put a spin on taking away your access and making you think they are doing you a favour this is Agenda 21—Bills c-6 in Canada—the new Bill being proposed by Mccain in the USA ---DSSA—the Antivitamin Bill In New Zealand –the New food bill in Australia-making foods as a prescription drug—the EFSA making up Articles of regulations that will end the line of most vitamins or herbals or supplements that they feel are not adequate ---which in fact have reputable science to back the claims made BUTTTT this institution refuses to recognize the research or the validity of the science take a look at what is going on---and write not to the FDA but to the drug companies and the manufactures of vitamins there is where the rel lobbying works ---IN THERE POCKET!!!
F F FEFSA mass rejects probiotics and antioxidants as article 13.1 batch two published
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued negative opinions to ‘most’ of 416 health claim dossiers including submissions linking health benefits to vitamin D, probiotics, green tea, black tea, lutein, beta glucans, meso-zeaxanthin, alpha-lipoic acid and melatonin. ---EFSA’s Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) also found causality for various health benefits had not been demonstrated for peptides, xanthan gum, sugar-free gum, guar gum, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), fermented whey and linoleic acid (LA). --The NDA’s latest raft of opinions will come as a massive blow tothe European and international functional foods and nutraceuticals industries, especially the herbal antioxidant and probiotic sectors, which have yet to see a positive NDA opinion. ---"This proves that the article 13.1 list was only ever suitable for vitamins and minerals," said Nigel Baldwin, the senior scientific and regulatory consultant and EU manager at claims consultancy, Cantox Health Sciences International. ---"The Article 13.1-13.3 list regulation principle was flawed in that regard. So many opinions really allude to the fact that they only went on the data provided. So without an opportunity to present data in full and discuss the relevance of studies, it’s not really surprising." ---He suggested many rejected dossiers will now be tweaked and resubmitted under the proprietary and emerging science article 13.5 route. --Potassium’s ability to benefit blood pressure and normal muscular and neurological function; melatonin's capacity to reduce jet leg; vitamin D’s potential to boost immunity and maintain normal muscle function; guar gum's ability to maintain normal blood cholesterol concentrations were affirmed by the NDA, which grouped the 416 submissions into 31 opinions which can be found here . ---Meal replacements were also backed to help reduce body weight and maintain body weight after weight loss - making them the first weight management claims to gain NDA approval. ---In a statement EFSA said the NDA had issued, "unfavourable opinions on most of the claims in the second series due to the poor quality of the information provided…"
·lack of information to identify the substance on which the claim is based, e.g. "probiotics";
·lack of evidence that the claimed effect is indeed beneficial to the maintenance or improvement of the functions of the body (e.g. food with "antioxidant properties");
·lack of human studies with reliable measures of the claimed health benefit.
Range of opinions
The NDA found:
·Sugar-free chewing gum does not reduce dental plaque
·Melatonin does not benefit sleep

"Submitters now will have to assess the reasons for the rejections."
the U.S. is a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and because the WTO
and other treaty agreements require the United States to adhere to Codex
standards, any changes approved in Europe, and implemented in the EU-dominated
Codex meetings, could subject the United States to WTO-enforced trade sanctions.
Codex will control:
F F FThe plan is to suppress all beneficial, high-potency nutrients, and to allow only those and a few other vitamins and minerals that will be high-priced, low-dosage, and synthetically-made by drug companies.
F F FCodex regulations will become binding internationally. Any nation that has entered into trade agreements through the WTO and its adjunctive treaties will eventually be forced to adopt Codex standards.
F F FAll "new" types of food supplements will be banned unless tested and approved in a drug-like manner. This is certain to be both time consuming and unnecessarily expensive. And, the validity of such tests is doubtful. A favorite ploy of drug and governmental authorities is to use such small doses of a supplement that tests do not show any noticeable value.
F F FCodex standards are not based upon accepted scientific or research findings. Rather, the standards are developed in a political atmosphere, with seemingly obligatory EU and drug-cartel approval.
From the drug cartel's point of view, the primary advantage in getting rid of true organic food is that in the absence of quality food, people will become ill and buy more prescription drugs. As a lesser advantage, the farmers will buy more insecticides and chemical fertilizers. The standards and definitions of "organic food" will be changed. Under Codex, a farmer or rancher will be able to call his products "organic" when they are full of toxic poisons. Under Codex, "organic food" may include as little as 70% organic contents, but this will not be noted on labels. (The other 30% can consist of poisons or contaminants.)--
Tell Your Senator to OPPOSE S. 3002, the Dietary Supplement Safety Act
We all know how self serving Washington is and if passed, we’d all be shocked and many of us looking for a job in another industry. For as long as DESHEA has been protecting our industry it would take as long if not longer to repeal this type of damaging legislation. John McCain has been tough on Big Pharma for years and I believe that this proposed legislation is his olive branch to protect Pharmaceutical Company Profits. The Dietary Supplements Safety Act proposed by John McCain would give Pharmaceutical Companies sole authority to control and sell "Disallowed" Vitamins and dictate supplement potencies! Please take action as defined below. And please see this article from the Examiner for more insight on what we could be in store for: http://www.examiner.com/x-2134-DC-Ethical-Issues-Examiner~y2010m2d11-McCain-wants-to-put-Big-Pharma-on-your-OTC-vitamin-shelf
Tell Your Senator to OPPOSE S. 3002, the Dietary Supplement Safety Act
If a new bill, the Dietary Supplement Safety Act, S. 3002, passes, it will amend the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) and have severe consequences for retailers and suppliers. As a retailer of dietary supplements, this is how this new legislation could affect you:
All dietary supplements, whether vitamins, minerals, herbal products and others that were previously allowed under DSHEA, could be removed from the market under S. 3002. This legislation would mandate that every dietary supplement would have to go through a brand new process of government review (yet to be defined) in order to remain on store shelves.
For the first time in the history of food or drug law, retail establishments would need to register with the FDA. Failing to register could result in severe monetary penalties, up to two times your gross profit. Not complying with even minimal technical requirements, such as minor errors in registration, record keeping or reporting could be considered a criminal offense.
Retailers would also be required to obtain "adequate written evidence" from suppliers that each dietary supplement product meets all regulatory requirements. Again, failure to do so could result in severe monetary penalties
Go to:www.Saveoursupplements.org to send a note in opposition to S.3002 directly to your two Senators or use the information on the website to write a personal letter. Either way, you need to act immediately. Do not let Congress take away your right to dietary supplements.
The Need for Networking
With everything going on globally and right here at home it is important to realize the value of networks---gov’ts of the world do it all the time we call it the U.N.—this is where the Leaders decide how and who they are going to invade to keep the global economy going at the expense of war—war on it’s citizens war on indigenous cultures war on tribal peoples who live on pristine land---the idea is that they are networked---undermining them is like knocking a domino down with the other dominoes in line, makes it easier to cause the whole thing to tumble—And this is where we come in---If we are networked when the dominoes go down and around you-- you will be connected with people who are like minded and can do things and know how to apply the things that should be applied to make things work---with everyone talking to at least one person, this can generate a dynamic and the web of networks can then be created—causing a synergy and support to everyone else---With our Farming and our Health being threatened by a piece of paper with ink and a wave of a pen you and I can be struck out without a second thought---with a stroke of a pen Our whole health consciousness will be forever changed to consume the toxic genetic and radiated waste the industries are putting out there as food---you are considered expendable, and there are a lot of us so if some die or get permanently disabled as a result of a genetically modified food –nano-particles and cloned meats, Vaccinations and Drugs that have nothing to do but compromise your immune system further. They see a forecast of food consumption and then decide to regulate the production of these toxic foods and then on top tell you that the Vitamins or herbs you are using are "UNSAFE"—It’s time to get a Autonomous attitude and break away from the world---the global gov’ts have no good thing for us !!! The moment we start to network with seed sharing—remedy sharing—food preserving---enzyme making---gardening---communications with short wave and other mean---sharing skills with each other in carpentry—technology—electronics---before you know it we become a lobbying power and can get the country(s) back on track away from the world of regulation and domination through regulation---something to consider—It is doable 1 % of a populace can be a dynamic force that can alter a countries madness and Poisoning the Planet---Just tell One!!! Before you know there are 2 and 2 become 4 and 4 become 8 and 8 becomes 16 and 16 becomes 32 and before you know it in one month there is over a million—and you think they are afraid---YA DAMN BETCHA!
Now there’s a Network!!
A Senate staffer confirmed that Sen. John McCain no longer supports a bill he introduced to significantly tighten regulatory requirements for dietary supplements.--McCain offered the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010, S. 3002, in February. The Arizona Republican will now collaborate with Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, on revised legislation that allegedly provides for transparency and safety within the supplement industry but without the intensive regulatory intervention proposed in S. 3002. No timeline is set for introduction of a new bill.---Hatch thanks McCain for withdrawing his support of the original legislation in a March 4 letter.--"I'm counting on you to work with me to make sure this important industry does not fall prey to over-regulatory regimes and mounds of costly government bureaucracy," Hatch writes. --It seemed only a matter of time before Hatch, an author of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act and a vocal industry booster, would speak out against McCain's bill. S. 3002 targeted products containing steroids and other illegal substances, but was viewed as having potentially devastating effects on the supplement industry as a whole. S. 3002 would have authorized FDA to create a list of "accepted" supplement ingredients, essentially eliminating the new dietary ingredient notification regime established by DSHEA. Other provisions would have required supplement firms to report all adverse events to FDA and would have mandated annual facility and product registration with the agency.--õõõ this is far from over---the efsa in Europe is convening on the new regs and as the statement said here there is no time limit for the new legislation, this means that they have not stopped to try and pass a bill undermining access this just means it is on hold til the Europeans either match what we have or we change to what they are doing---this will be compromised for now till they can get everyone to be so either distracted that you wil not notice any changes or you will just see blatant changesõõõ
A Cochrane Collaboration study has documented that there is no evidence that influenza vaccines have any protective effect in people over age 65. The meta analysis concluded that the "available evidence is of poor quality and provides no guidance regarding the safety, efﬁcacy or effectiveness of inﬂuenza vaccines for people aged 65 years or older."--The standard recommendation by modern medicine and health officials is for people over age 65 to be immunized with every influenza vaccination that comes out, in spite of the fact that there has never been any evidence that it keeps them from getting flu.The study points out that "surrogate outcomes"—antibody stimulation—are used to predict flu vaccine efficacy. That means no influenza vaccine trials actual test to see if they're effective. Instead, fairly arbitrary blood antibody levels are used to claim efficacy. Trials to see whether the vaccines actually prevent flu are not done. Neither are trials done to determine whether the antibody levels are actually effective in preventing flu. The Cochrane Collaboration study's results should come as no surprise. The studies provided by drug companies to gain approval of their flu vaccines routinely document that antibody levels in people over 65 are significantly lower than for younger people. This is not the first study to demonstrate a lack of efficacy for influenza vaccines in the elderly. A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2005, titled "Impact of Influenza Vaccination on Seasonal Mortality in the US Elderly Population", (2005;165:265-272) came to the same conclusion in reference to all age groups: We could not correlate increasing vaccination coverage after 1980 with declining mortality rates in any age group.
Independent sensory testing on the mineral ingredient Aquamin has found that it can boost the calcium content of dairy products by up to 40 percent with no negative impact on taste or texture, says GTC Nutrition. Aquamin is a seaweed-derived multi-mineral source, said to be rich in calcium, magnesium and over 70 other trace minerals. It is produced by the Irish firm Marigot, and is distributed in the US by GTC Nutrition. The company this week announced results of tests conducted by the independent group NIZO Food Research earlier this year, which assessed the impact of two Aquamin grades (Aquamin S and Aquamin Soluble) in ultra high temperature (UHT) milk, long-life yogurt drinks and stirred yogurt products.--Calcium fortification---The UHT ( Ultra High Temperature) milk was fortified with 25 percent calcium and the yogurt products were fortified with 40 percent calcium Participants in the study were asked to comment on the taste and texture of the fortified products. They reported improved viscosity for the milk, and no negative flavor impact for the yogurts. The yogurt drink was also found to have an enhanced strawberry flavor, and a perception of increased freshness. All products were found to be visually stable GTC’s Trina O’Brien told NutraIngredients-USA.com this morning that the current testing was prompted by the recent addition of the most soluble grade to the Aquamin line – Aquamin Soluble. This form, she said, was particularly targeted for use in beverage products The other products in the line are Aquamin F, a fine powdery calcium source for use in liquid and dry applications, Aquamin S, a sea mineral source designed to enhance the nutritional profile of low pH foods such as carbonated beverages and frozen desserts, and Aquamin TG, a granulated natural calcium source for use in dietary supplements.
Health claims----Products that contain 10 percent calcium are able to carry a ‘good’ source of calcium nutrient content claim in the US, and products that contain 20 percent can carry an ‘excellent’ source claim ----Products that contain 10 percent calcium are able to carry a ‘good’ source of calcium nutrient content claim in the US, and products that contain 20 percent can carry an ‘excellent’ source claim. In addition, GTC said Aquamin qualifies for an authorized health claim for osteoporosis prevention. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), products high in calcium (20 percent RDV per serving), along with regular exercise and a healthy diet, can help maintain good bone health in the teens and early adult years to reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life. Structure/Function claims can also be used on products made with Aquamin. Examples of these include: “Supports bone health”; “Contains bone building minerals”; “Essential minerals for overall wellness”; and “Plant derived source of calcium”. One of the few plant-based calcium sources, Aquamin is still not on a par with calcium carbonates on the market. However, O’Brien said it is “competitively priced”. It has proved particularly popular in Asian markets where consumers already know the benefits of seaweed and are keen to market its natural source
The US Department of Agriculture recommended increased dairy consumption when it reconfigured the food pyramid in 2003, but statistics indicate about 80 percent of Americans do not get enough calcium. A similar situation in the UK led the British Dietetic Association to state calcium-fortified, non-dairy foods could be "very useful" in 2007 In a 2007 survey conducted by market researcher the Hartman Group, 68 percent of 2,978 consumers polled cited calcium as a nutrient they would "deliberately add to their diets" second only to fiber. The next highest ingredients were protein and whole grains. Despite these deficiencies and apparent consumer intentions, the calcium fortified foods market has been struggling to match its performance of the 1990s as newer ingredients have caught the imagination of food formulators and the public. In 2006, the percentage of food and beverage products worldwide making ‘high calcium’ claims dropped below three percent for the first time this century, according to Datamonitor’s Productscan Online. Only 2.8 per cent of products made a ‘high calcium’ claim in 2006, compared with 3.7 per cent in 2005
There are two principal methods of UHT treatment:
The product is heated by direct contact with steam of potable or culinary quality. The main advantage of direct heating is that the product is held at the elevated temperature for a shorter period of time. For a heat-sensitive product such as milk, this means less damage.
vs Direct Heating (17 KB)
There are two methods of direct heating
Injection: High pressure steam is injected into pre-heated liquid by a steam injector leading to a rapid rise in temperature. After holding, the product is flash-cooled in a vacuum to remove water equivalent to amount of condensed steam used. This method allows fast heating and cooling, and volatile removal, but is only suitable for some products. It is energy intensive and because the product comes in contact with hot equipment, there is potential for flavour damage.
Infusion: The liquid product stream is pumped through a distributing nozzle into a chamber of high pressure steam. This system is characterized by a large steam volume and a small product volume, distributed in a large surface area of product. Product temperature is accurately controlled via pressure. Additional holding time may be accomplished through the use of plate or tubular heat exchangers, followed by flash cooling in vacuum chamber. This method has several advantages:
The heating medium and product are not in direct contact, but separated by equipment contact surfaces. Several types of heat exchangers are applicable:
Plate Heat Exchangers: Similar to that used in HTST but operating pressures are limited by gaskets. Liquid velocities are low which could lead to uneven heating and burn-on. This method is economical in floor space, easily inspected, and allows for potential regeneration.
Tubular Heat Exchangers: There are several types:
All of these tubular heat exchangers have fewer seals involved than with plates. This allows for higher pressures, thus higher flow rates and higher temperatures. The heating is more uniform but difficult to inspect.
Scraped Surface Heat Exchangers: The product flows through a jacketed tube, which contains the heating medium, and is scraped from the sides with a rotating knife. This method is suitable for viscous products and particulates (< 1 cm) such as fruit sauces, and can be adjusted for different products by changing configuration of rotor. There is a problem with larger particulates; the long process time for particulates would mean long holding sections which are impractical. This may lead to damaged solids and overprocessing of sauce

Protective effect of Codonopsis lanceolata root extract against alcoholic fatty liver in the rat.----J Med Food. 2009 Dec;12(6):1293-301
Authors: Cho K, Kim SJ, Park SH, Kim S, Park T
Alcohol intake remains the most important cause of fatty liver throughout the world. The current study was undertaken to determine whether dietary supplementation with Codonopsis lanceolata root water extract attenuates the development of alcoholic fatty liver in rats and to elucidate the molecular mechanism for such an effect. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed normal diet (ND), ethanol diet (ED) (36% of total energy from ethanol), or 0.5% C. lanceolata root extract-supplemented ethanol diet (ED+C) for 8 weeks. C. lanceolata root water extract supplemented to rats with chronic alcohol consumption ameliorated the ethanol-induced accumulations of hepatic cholesterol and triglyceride. Chronic alcohol consumption up-regulated the hepatic expression of genes involved in inflammation, fatty acid synthesis, and cholesterol metabolism, including tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha), liver X receptor alpha (LXRalpha), sterol regulatory element-binding protein (SREBP)-1c, fatty acid synthase, acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase alpha (ACC), stearoyl-coenzyme A desaturase 1, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMGR), and low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR). The ethanol-induced up-regulations of TNFalpha, LXRalpha, SREBP-1c, HMGR, and LDLR genes in the liver were reversed by feeding C. lanceolata root water extract for 8 weeks. Moreover, ethanol-induced decreases in the ratio of phospho-5'-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) alpha/AMPKalpha and phospho-ACC/ACC protein levels in the liver were significantly restored (135% and 35% increases, respectively, P < .05) by supplementing them with C. lanceolata root water extract. In conclusion, C. lanceolata root water extract appears to be protective against alcoholic fatty liver through the regulation of SREBP-1c, LXRalpha, HMGR, and LDLR genes and by the phosphorylation of AMPKalpha and ACC, which are implicated in lipid metabolism.
Protective effect of Thuja occidentalis against DMBA-induced breast cancer with reference to oxidative stress.
Hum Exp Toxicol. 2010 Mar 3;Authors: Ojeswi BK, Khoobchandani M, Hazra DK, Srivastava MM
In vivo experiment has been conducted to observe the preventive role of Thuja occidentalis Linn (leaves) against 7, 12 dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA)-induced mammary cancer. Ethyl acetate (EtOAc) and methanolic (MeOH) extracts in two doses (5 and 10 mg/kg body weight) of the plant were tested for DMBA-induced Indian Cancer Research Centre (ICRC) mice mammary carcinoma in terms of tumor weight, volume, life span, histological variation and oxidative stress against the reference drug doxorubicin using standard animal protocol. EtOAc extract (10 mg/kg body weight) of the plant exhibits reduction of tumor weight (39%), tumor volume (50%), reduced glutathione (GSH) (83%) and malignant cells compared to cancerous control group while the increase in body weight and life span in comparison with cancerous control and doxorubicin-treated group. EtOAc extract being most potent extract has been subjected to detailed chromatographic separation. The most potent chromatographic fraction exhibits the presence of flavonoidal unit. Structural elucidation of bioactive principle is in progress. It is inferred that the plant T. occidentalis (leaves) possess significant potential for phytopreventive bioefficacy against DMBA-induced mammary carcinogenesis.

ScienceDaily (Feb. 11, 2010) — Treatment of prostate cancer using a very low dose of nitroglycerin may slow and even halt the progression of the disease without the severe side effects of current treatments,Queen's University researchers have discovered.--The findings are the result of the first-ever clinical trial using nitroglycerin to treat prostate cancer. The 24-month, Phase II study targeted 29 men with increasing levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) following prostate surgery or radiation. PSA levels are a key predictor of cancer progression.--"We were very excited to see a significant slowing in the progression of the disease as evidenced by the men's PSA levels, and to see this result in many of the men who completed the study," says Robert Siemens, the leader of the study and a Professor of Urology at Queen's University and urologist at Kingston General Hospital.--The researchers are encouraged by the results, particularly because safe and effective treatments for men with rising PSA levels following surgery or radiation are limited. They note that further testing needs to be done to confirm the results of this very small study.--The men were treated with a low-dose, slow-release nitroglycerin skin patch and their PSA levels monitored. Of the 17 patients who completed the study, all but one showed a stabilization or decrease in the rate of cancer progression, as measured by their PSA Doubling Time.---Nitroglycerin has been used at significantly higher doses for more than a century to treat angina. This trial was based on a key finding from pre-clinical research carried out at Queen's, which showed that decreases in nitric oxide play an important role in tumor progression and that this progression can be stopped by low-dose nitroglycerin.---Prostate cancer is diagnosed in approximately 235,000 men per year in the United States and 20,700 in Canada. Of patients who have undergone radical prostatectomy and/or radiation treatment, it is estimated that 30 to 50 percent will experience a recurrence of cancer. Results of the study, conducted by Queen's University researchers Robert Siemens, Jeremy Heaton, Michael Adams, Jun Kawakami and Charles Graham, appeared in a recent issue of the journal Urology.--Research into the use of nitroglycerin and similar compounds for the treatment of cancer by Drs. Adams, Graham and Heaton has resulted in the issue of 10 patents worldwide. PARTEQ Innovations, the technology transfer office of Queen's, has licensed some of this intellectual property to Nometics Inc., a Queen's spinoff company, which is developing products and therapies based on this and related research.--"This peer-reviewed research is our first clear clinical evidence that low-dose nitric oxide therapy offers prostate cancer patients a new non-invasive treatment option," says Robert Bender, CEO of Nometics. "It is our intention to start broader clinical trials in 2010 to confirm and expand these results."

Foods or Supplements that can increase Nitric Oxide
Arginine is the primary source of the Nitrogen molecules that comprise the Nitric Oxide molecule. ----Superoxide Dismutase Mimetics (Zinc+ Copper or Zinc + Manganese make S.O.D-- e.g. Copper Binding Protein, Iamin and Tempol) prevent the destruction of Nitric Oxide by Superoxide Free Radicals.—Carbohydrates--Acemannan increases the production of Nitric Oxide by Macrophages (by increasing Nitric Oxide Synthase levels).-Galangal produces nitroglycerin naturally ( nitric oxide )-- Enzymes---Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) facilitates the body's production of Nitric Oxide (NO) by stripping a Nitrogen atom from Arginine molecules and combining the Nitrogen atom with Oxygen to produce Nitrogen Oxide. ---Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) enhances the function of Nitric Oxide (by preventing the inhibitory action of Superoxide Free Radicals on Nitric Oxide).--Estradiol increases the body’s production of Nitric Oxide (by increasing the body’s production of Nitric Oxide Synthase enzyme).--Nitrogen is an essential component of Nitric Oxide.----Neurotransmitters---Acetylcholine stimulates the production of Nitric Oxide (by stimulating the activation of Nitric Oxide Synthase). Utilize CDP-citicoline or Alpha GPC these are a more refined Choline---Substance P stimulates the release of Nitric Oxide. Pharmaceutical Drugs Minoxidil is speculated to achieve its capillary-dilating effects by stimulating the production of Nitric Oxide.---Polyphenols---Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs) stimulate the production of optimal amounts of Nitric Oxide in the Endothelium of Blood Vessels.

Antioxidant and antiacetylcholinesterase activities of chard (Beta vulgaris L. var. cicla).
Food Chem Toxicol. 2010 Feb 22;Authors: Sacan O, Yanardag R
Plants have been used for many years as a source of traditional medicine to treat various diseases and conditions. Many of these medicinal plants are also excellent sources for phytochemicals, many of which contain potent antioxidant and antiacetylcholinesterase activities. Chard (Beta vulgaris L. var. cicla) is widely spread inTurkey and used as an antidiabetic in traditional medicine. In the present study, the antioxidant activity and acetylcholinesterase inhibitor capacity of chard were examined. In addition, proline level of chard was determined. The antioxidant activity of water extract of chard was evaluated using different antioxidant tests. The results were compared with natural and synthetic antioxidants. The results suggest that chard may provide a natural source of antioxidant and antiacetylcholinesterase activities and proline content.

A “Perfect Storm” Accelerates Chronic Disease Epidemic
© By Mary Budinger,-----
A toxic soup of heavy metals, EMF pollution, chemicals, and the body’s own toxins produced by disease, is turning long-familiar microorganisms into super stars of destruction. Combined with junk food and a chemical-laden environment, they all add up to the perfect storm where perhaps a few types of biotoxins are produced in us in ---unprecedented rates. Pathogenic bugs – be they bacterial, viral, fungal or/and parasitic – are competing with us for survival. They are cunning adversaries, fluent in serious disruption for their own gain. They thrive on common staples in our modern world – sugar, denatured and genetically modified foods, chemicals, stress, and electromagnetic pollution. So far, the bugs have proven more adaptable and simply smarter at survival than most of us. The mounting evidence is in our children: --The CDC reports that 1 out of every 6 children has a diagnosis of a developmental problem.--- Cancer is now the leading cause of death in children, aged 1-14. The National Children’s Cancer Society says 1 in 330 children will develop cancer by age 20. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (July 2007), --“new epidemics in chronic health conditions among children and youth will translate into major demands on public health and welfare in the coming decades.” The study found “from 15 to 18 percent of children and adolescents have some sort of chronic health condition, nearly half of whom could be considered disabled.” The Lyme-Induced Autism Foundation’s annual conference is an opportunity for doctors and parents working in the trenches of chronic disease to compare notes on what they are seeing. As that took place this past June in Scottsdale, Arizona, there were differing opinions about specific pathogens and treatments, but there was universal agreement that a “perfect storm” of environmental elements is weakening the human immune system. “For some reason or another, the cases are getting more difficult,” said Dr. Toby Watkinson of the Scripps Medical Offices in California who has been in practice some 28 years. “It used to be we said, gluten-free, dairy-free, and got good results. But that is not so much the case now.” Author Donna Jackson Nakazawa sounded a wake-up call with her 2008 book, the Autoimmune Epidemic. “We have been waging an all out war on cancer for decades,” she said. “But a woman is eight times more likely to have an autoimmune disease than breast cancer. Our own immune system is being asked to distinguish between itself and invaders and it is overloaded. Too many mistakes are being made because of the plethora of environmental chemicals. In the international community, scientists talk about the impact of the chemicals as global warming, yet we do not admit that there is a sea of change also taking place in human bodies.” Immune system dysfunction is on the rise because immune system competency is withering under an assault of toxicity and pathogens. “Pathogens only show up when there is a toxic environment for them to grow in. That is what we need to focus on.” - Dr. Garry Gordon
A Toxic World Breeds A Toxic Soup ---ATexas study showed that the closer kids live to coal-fired power plants and the associated exposures to airborne mercury, the higher the rates of autism. Many believe mercury holds a special place among environmental toxins. “Mercury, in my experience, is the one thing that most fuels the growth of pathogens,” Dr. Lee Cowden of Texas stated. “It is found in greater amounts in the ocean and the air. It is slow to detoxify.” And, it has a synergistic effect. “When you put mercury and lead together and it is not 1 + 1 = 2. No, it is 1 + 1 = 100 times more toxic,” Dr. Jeff Wulfman of Vermont explained. “Modern medicine tries to isolate one factor but there is never just one.” http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/04/080424120953.htm
Dr. Cowden believes the primary cause of autism is brain inflammation, pointing the finger of blame at a wide swath of toxic exposures. “We know the fetus becomes a dumping ground for the mother’s toxins. If the mother had mercury fillings, she downloads a lot of that mercury directly into the unborn child. In time come the co-contributors – the other heavy metals, fungal toxins, as well as the body’s own toxins produced by disease, electromagnetic fields (EMF), nutritional deficiencies, miasms, hormone imbalances (children with high testosterone levels are more likely to develop autism), ergots, neurotransmitter imbalances, and emotions.” It is worth repeating one item on his list; “the body’s own toxins produced by disease.” Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt of Washington reminds us that biotoxins secreted by the bugs usually make us sicker than the bugs themselves. When the level of biotoxins becomes high enough, people will be symptomatic. Throw an antibiotic at the bugs, chances are they just spit their biotoxins at you, making you feel sicker. Dr. Klinghardt says many of the autistic kids he sees have kryptopyrroluria (KPU), also called HPU. “Basically, these kids are peeing out all their zinc,” he said. “The bugs figured out how to block an enzyme to make you pee out your zinc and disarm your immune system. It is genius! Some 300 enzymes are zinc dependent. If you have no zinc, the body substitutes cadmium or lead or aluminum or mercury. When the substitution is made, the child becomes highly toxic.” Pathogens also attract metals. For example, the coxsackievirus B3 infection increases the intestinal absorption of cadmium. --Adding EMF and GMO to the Equation--Dr. Klinghardt pioneered the integration of low frequency magnetic and electric fields into his practice. “Any adult Lyme patient has had a preceding issue with mold,” he said. “We all harbor molds – Candida, aspergillus, etc. We are now exposing these molds to record amounts of EMF bombardment. Since 1995, with cell phones and Wi-Fi, the amount of EMF has gone up exponentially. This causes the molds to maximize their production. I worked with a key mold researcher inSwitzerland who could measure the amount of mycotoxins produced on a daily basis. One culture we protected with a Faraday cage, the other we left in the room. Three weeks later, we measured. The unprotected culture had 600 times more mycotoxins.” Dr. Klinghardt feels an important test for autistic kids is a mycotoxins urine test. “It is surprising how high the kids test. Many of us were looking at mold years before Lyme got so much attention. The microbes that lived in us symbiotically for tens of thousands of years are feeling under attack. This is what is creating autism, symptoms of Lyme, the learning disabilities, ALS, Parkinson’s, short term memory loss, insomnia – it all goes back to a few biotoxins in us produced in unprecedented rates.” Every cordless phone, every wireless internet and cell phone, every refrigerator, and every nightstand lamp and clock radio – much modern day technology that we take for granted – is insidiously jacking up the rates of all manner of chronic disease. “The only thing that I have ever been able to predict is that the mother who has an autistic child slept in a high EMF environment,” he said. Bau biologist Vicki Warren of Tennessee also makes the connection between EMF and cellular health. She has seen many autistic children improve only after all electricity and radio signals were removed from their immediate environment while they sleep. “For whatever reason, a number of the Lyme and autistic kids are hypersensitive to electrosmog,” she said. “EHS – electric hypersensitivity – is recognized as a syndrome in UK and Sweden. There are two theories about EHS. First, the microbes within the body think they are under attack and so they start proliferating/replicating and producing toxins. Second, our healthy cells also feel like they are under attack so they lock down and close their cells walls which inhibits their ability to expel toxins and take in nutrients. So the healthy cells die off early and the bad stuff grows rapidly. It’s a double whammy.” Our bodies are electric. But the energy from electrosmog is a very chaotic energy, not the same as what the body uses. “Every nerve impulse in the body is an electric current,” said Dr. Sandra Rose Michael of Florida. “Every cell is a mini-battery. When the body has the right energy, it will heal anything. When the cells have more energy, the first thing they do is clean house. True cellular regeneration is what we want to accomplish.” Dr. Watkinson sees that many kids have a lack of connectivity in the brain. “These children are at risk in electrical environments,” he said. “There is always a Th1, Th2, Th3 disruption. They all have cognitive dysfunction, can’t compute what you tell them. You tell them to raise their hand or ask for a glass of milk. But they end up waving their arm and asking about the pink gorilla. They can’t complete the neurological connections.” --- Genetically modified (GM) foods seem to be contributing to intestinal dysfunctions, and the bulk of the immune system is in the gut. Jeffery Smith, author of Seeds of Deception and Executive Director of Institute for Responsible Technology, pointed out that no safety studies were ever done on GM foods. “The FDA simply declared in May 1992 that ‘foods derived by these no methods do not differ from other foods in any meaningful or uniform way,’” Smith explained. “They promised us it was safe because plant genes do not transfer to bacteria in our intestines. But the genes put into GM crops come from bacteria so the natural safety mechanism is gone. We may be turning our intestines into living pesticide factories.” Glynn A.W., Lind Y., et al; The intestinal absorption of cadmium increases during a common viral infection(coxsackie virus B3) in mice. Chem. Biol. Interact., 113(1): 79-89 (1998). The “FlavrSavr” tomato was the first GM food. “When they fed it to rats, the animals developed stomach lesions and died,” Smith said, noting the number of autistic children who have gut issues. Like EMF, he said, “GM food doesn’t have immediate, crisis-type warning signs. But we are playing roulette with our health.” The invisible contributions of GM foods, chaotic electrical signals – and biofilms – are new areas of study, and potentially huge factors in human illness. “As we see more coming out about the ubiquitous nature of organisms in people today, I see us and the community of microbes within us, and our immune system, trying to manage that. It is a constant tug and pull.” - Dr. Jeff Wulfman
Hiding In Biofilm ------Biofilm is a slimy matrix pathogens use like a cloaking device to hide from the immune system. The Lyme disease pathogen Borrelia, for example, creates biofilm. Entire colonies of pathogens take up housekeeping in patches of biofilm. Candida, for example, is usually in the mix, stimulating inflammation to provide food for the colony of bugs. And here’s the kicker: pathogens within a biofilm community are 100 to 1000 times more antibiotic resistant. That may explain why chronic Lyme suffers are not cleared of their disease after months, even years of antibiotics. Biofilm requires formation of fibrin and hijacks the body’s safety net. Fibrin is part of the body’s attempt to stop pathogens. But when biofilm creates excess fibrin, the blood gets thick and is less efficient at carrying oxygen and delivering nutrients. “We found when we gave patients heparin for infertility, we saw a lot of chronic symptoms go away,” recounted Dr. David Berg of Arizona. That is because Heparin blocks the action of clotting factors in the blood which often addresses this hypercoaguble state. With less fibrin, the immune system may be better able to see the pathogens. The immune system recognizes a bug by antigens, proteins on the outer membrane. “So what if the bugs didn’t produce outer membrane proteins (OMP)? These bugs don’t,” said Dr. Anju Usman of Illinois. She reported that biofilm uses fibrin, iron, calcium, and magnesium to create its lattice. She reports success dismantling biofilm -----with EDTA, and serrapeptase Trypsin. Should we deprive sick patients of iron, calcium and magnesium because they make up biofilm? “Magnesium is very necessary; it also happens to be one of the building blocks used by biofilm,” said Dr. Garry Gordon of Arizona. “The risk to benefit ratio doesn’t make sense if you pull out the magnesium. When you are low in magnesium, it ties into greater death rates.” How Many Bugs Are Bad? Dr. Wulfman said diagnosis of chronic infection is difficult. “Classic Lyme disease – the person had no prior infection, got a tick bite – I don’t see that as much anymore. I am not comfortable with ‘Lyme disease’ to cover this entire spectrum of illness related to Borrelia. As we see more coming out about the ubiquitous nature of organisms in people today, I see us and the community of microbes within us, and our immune system, trying to manage that. It is a constant tug and pull.” Perhaps we need to reconsider the conventional wisdom about infections. “Autism kids are 16 times more likely to have bacterial/viral infections than neurotypical children,” said Dr. Wulfman. “I believe most all of the kids on the spectrum have some form of fungal involvement. As well, in my experience about 80% seem to show bacteria on the stained blood smear.” The idea that a large variety of different pathogens are responsible for a long list of illnesses is further defined by the idea that a few biotoxins, produced in unprecedented rates, are causing a wide variety of different manifestations of disease. Dr. Stephen Fry of Arizona, known for his research into biofilms, thinks the day is not far off when his team will identify a single microorganism, hiding in biofilm, that is responsible for symptoms associated with many expressions of chronic disease, including autism and Lyme disease. “We looked at the blood from various patients under the microscope and we find signs of this one microorganism in many samples from patients ill with chronic Lyme,” Dr. Fry said. “It is an elongated microorganism in the biofilm that stains like bacteria, and looks like bacteria in people who are sick. We’ve mapped three of its genes so far.” How could one bug cause so many different diagnoses and symptoms? “In the biofilm community, there is a soup of pathogens where they all hide,” he explained. “Any one of those pathogens may not be why you are sick. For example, just about everybody over 35 will test positive for Epstein-Barr virus, but people usually are not sick from it. So not every bug in the biofilm soup is causing symptoms. Symptoms may vary based upon a person’s genetics, environment, and pathogen genotype.” We live in a symbiotic relationship with our community of bugs. For example, eradication of Helicobacter pylori may have had the unintended consequence of unleashing an asthma threat even as the risk of gastric ulcers and cancer declined.3 Sometimes it is a matter of how much bacteria is on board. So the aim of treatment may not be necessarily about eradicating all the bugs. Whether we are sick or well depends upon how strong we are in relation to the pathogenic load within us. Hey Professor Pasteur – Move Over!
Western medicine is based upon Louis Pasteur’s germ theory of disease: germs invade pristine territory and we fight back vigorously with killing agents. Yet even Pasteur changed his tune in his lifetime. He admitted on his deathbed that the terrain was more important than the pathogen, but by then the medical textbooks had been written, setting the stage for warfare with pharmaceutical weapons of mass destruction. Now, the AMA reports that prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death in the United States.4 And the superbug MRSA shows us again that pathogens will supersede our weapons of mass destruction in their quest for survival. “The terrain is everything, the pathogen is nothing,” Pasteur finally concluded. That explains why one person is extremely symptomatic with Lyme disease and other is not. And why one kid develops autism after vaccinations and another does not. The French-American microbiologist Rene Dubos was more on target with his concept that most diseases occur as a result of multiple assaults acting simultaneously, as opposed to a single event. Dubos’ concept mirrors the idea that manifestation of chronic diseases represents the straw that breaks the camel’s back. One too many environmental assaults and the immune system gets overloaded. “The more chronic parasitic infections someone has, the more weak/toxic/depleted they are, and vice versa, so it spirals,” Dr. Wulfman explained. “Plus you can get a new infection from the outside, and a present infection can be reactivated.” “Perhaps autism is merely a disease of the biological terrain that will one day supersede the out-dated germ theory of disease,” suggested Mary Coyle, DiHom, of New York. “At some point, we have to consider that pharmaceutical meds, after time, weaken the patient so that the pathogens get the edge up. Yeast and microbes are actually there to heal the body.” Along with the germ theory came the quest for a diagnosis, a label that that tells the doctor what the fix is.It is telling that it is harder to come by a good diagnosis. Donna Jackson Nakazawa documented that an autoimmune patient sees, on average, six doctors prior to receiving an accurate diagnosis. Lyme disease patients have absolute horror stories about getting a diagnosis, as evidenced in the movie, Under Our Skin. Autism is easier to diagnose, butcomes with so many variations. And none is easy to “fix.” Dr. Wulfman feels smart pathogens necessitate a different approach to doctoring. “We need to avoid the ‘tyranny of tests’ where the doctor makes a declaration about that person. Our testing is not that great. The way some people are treated is unconscionable; they are told ‘This is the way it is.’ I don’t think medical professionals can say that. There is no cookbook.” Dr. Gordon agrees. “We are all hoping for the magic bullet, some pill that will take us out of the morass of ill health. But that won’t happen,” he said. “We would love to have a test for all toxins, all hormones deficiencies, but in many cases, we don’t have great tests or they are very expensive. And that is not really important. Pathogens only show up when there is a toxic environment for them to grow in. That is what we need to focus on.” “The microbes that lived in us symbiotically for tens of thousands of years are feeling under attack. This is what is creating autism, symptoms of Lyme, the learning disabilities, ALS, Parkinsons, short-term memory loss, insomnia…” - Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt The primary underpinning of a healthy terrain is a healthy diet. But processed, devitalized food is a big part of the problem. The primary source of calories consumed in USA today is GM corn syrup. Next is white flour. Some 70 years ago, Otto Warburg was awarded a Nobel Prize for figuring out that cancer cells use a lot more sugar than healthy cells. Today we see that pathogens also use a lot of sugar. Carbohydrate cravings for bread, pasta, chips, and cookies are common among autistic children. Although some people are proponents of raw food, Dr. Klinghardt suggests that we may be too weakened now for much of it. “I lived in India for 2 years and any kind of raw food made me sick – parasites, inflammatory bowel,” he said. “It took me 20 years to get stabilized. So be warned about the raw food thing. The book that really needs to be written about autism is about getting the food into the kids without a struggle so they will want to eat it. The kids’ senses are so derailed from what their needs are. If you let them select, they will eat sugar from morning to night.” “Food and drink are one of the major overlooked and ignored contributors to chronic disease that I see,” said Dr. Wulfman. “We have an epidemic of omega-3 deficiency. Demineralized soil means crops are sick, fatigued, and kept alive with fertilizers and pesticides…and so are we. Never has there been the excess of sugars, never the level of toxins or the numbers of vaccinations before. And there is a ubiquitous heavy metal load underneath this. Metals in people today are many thousand times higher than in ‘ancient’ man. Never has there been the progressive immune challenges and chronic parasitic infections. This is the perfect storm.”
The Makings Of A Perfect Storm---Every speaker at the LIA conference contributed elements to the “perfect storm” breeding chronic disease: Vitamin D upregulates some 3000 genes that keep us healthy, but the conventional wisdom scared us away from the sun. Obese people need a lot more vitamin D because toxins are held in fat cells. Until recently, sunscreens only blocked UVB which we need to make vitamin D; UVA causes cancer. So sunscreens actually contributed to cancer. – Dr. Joseph Mercola of Illinois B Starfield, Is US Health Really the Best in the World?, Journal American Medical Association, July 26, 2000;284(4):483-5--- Everyone born today has 1000 times more lead in the bones. As the mother creates a fetus, the calcium from the mother is used to make bones in the fetus but the lead is in the bones and it is downloaded too. – Dr. Garry Gordon The Environmental Working Group’s study of umbilical cord blood shows that a steady stream of industrial chemicals, pollutants and pesticides crosses the placenta. An average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants were found in umbilical cord blood samples. – Dr. Toby Watkinson -- The birth history of sick children is often complicated. “I am amazed at how much heavy metal toxicity little children have at 5-6 years of age.” – Dr. Ann Corson of Pennsylvania-- Allergies are often unresolved bacterial infections. Dr. Watkinson-- Half your immune system is wasted if it is trying to handle something it is sensitive to like gluten. – Dr. Gordon- Viruses can be a primary infection, but their activation (vs. dormancy) may be secondary to immune stressors/weakening brought about by underlying bacterial infections, toxins, etc. – Dr. Wulfman--- Acidic pH is very common, encouraging proliferation of microorganisms and reducing cellular energy. – Mary Coyle, D.I. Hom. of New York--There is a high prevalence of familial thrombophilia where at least one family member has an autism spectrum disorder. – Dr. David Berg Pesticide exposure impairs cognitive development. – Vicki Warren-- These kids have a shopping list of issues that are inter-related to the nervous system. The nervous system will sometimes sacrifice certain functions to make other functions work. Photons of light run our biochemistry. The nervous system is a holographic communication and can be treated with light. – Dr. George Gonzalez of California Gene Changes, Gene Transmission--Parasites, a marker of persistent infection, are survival specialists. “To survive, pathogens have to alter the human immune system,” Dr. Wulfman explained. “We can see some of the complex ways they do that. They create inflammation to help break up tissue which they consume. Then there are complex competitions between the parasites within the host. Parasites use quorum sensing to detect what other bugs are there, how many, and then adjust what they do. They have the ability to make biofilm. And they can alter gene expression and suppress host immunity.” Epigenetics is reshaping the way scientists look at traditional genetics. We are finding that chemical exposures, toxins, and infections – mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence – can drastically alter how the genes behave or express themselves. These changes may remain through cell divisions for the remainder of the cell’s life and may also last for multiple generations. A study out of China in 2003 on tuberculosis, for example, found cells infected with TB organism changed 473 new expressions of genes. -- “When you hear about genes then, is this the cause or a marker?” Dr. Wulfman asks. --Duke University’s Dr. Randy Jirtle is shaking traditional hallowed halls with research into changes that can be inherited during cell division that alter the function of genes without changing the hardware, or the DNA sequences. So what is the implication for a common chemical from plastic like bisphenol A (BPA), a relatively strong estrogenic compound which can alter the epigenome? “Jirtle found that this environmental toxicant caused hypomethylation,” said Dr. Gordon. “BPA has been found to cause an epigenic change in mice from lean to obese. Jirtle also found nutrient supplementation of the mother helped to counteract the BPA-induced hypomethylation.” It gives new meaning to the concept that food is medicine. Nutrition is not a big item in med school and that is a big part of the problem. Early nutrition affects adult metabolism in humans and other mammals, potentially via persistent alterations in DNA methylation. Whether we are sick or well depends upon how strong we are in relation to the pathogenic load within us.-- Mapping genes is not of much interest to this group. Many have been there, done that. It’s a curiosity, but not particularly useful. The more interesting questions revolve around whether today’s perfect storm will ripple through forthcoming generations. The science of epigenetics tells us that toxins are trans-generational. The old expression, “You are what you eat,” is giving way to, “You are what your mother ate.” Dr. Klinghardt advises that you look at the genes last. “Not at the beginning, and not instead of some other tests,” he advises. “You can never get a Lyme patient well unless you start with detoxification. That is also true of all chronic diseases. I learned to look at the whole family. We detox first, then address infections.”---Dr. Gordon, a leader in the field of detoxification, agrees. He points out that, “The world wants to do a test on you, then sell you something based on the results. But it’s a bad model. And it’s too complicated and expensive. --We need tools in our toolbox that do not harm us.”
Stress of Chronic Disease Is Upon Doctors and Patients---Intelligent pathogens adapt to changes in their environment. Lyme disease, for example, used to be a “tick borne --disease.” No longer. According to Dr. Cowden, it is now transmitted through mosquitoes, fleas, sexual intercourse, blood transfusions, trans-placenta to fetus, breast feeding, and via poorly cooked meats. “So rather than ask your young patients if they’ve ever had a tick bite, ask if they’ve had a mosquito bite,” advised Dr. Klinghardt. “Look at the mother for clinical signs of Lyme disease and its co-infections. Most of the autistic children are cases of Lyme disease contracted congenitally.” “A sick planet produces sick kids,” said homeopath Mary Coyle. “These kids cannot detox what they downloaded as a fetus from their mothers, plus what they get on their own. The stress is us. We are exposed to ongoing stress on a daily basis. Pesticides, chlorine, carpet glues in school every day. So you have to keep cleaning them up. My kid was too sick, the cells too full of toxins, for the gluten-free diet to ----help him recover. You need to get to the subtle energy fields before you go to the biochemical level.” Cleaning up the environment and the diet are not easy subjects to teach, and not easy for patients to integrate. “The vast majority of our culture has traded health for convenience,” said Dr. Mercola. “We need to learn not to buy things that move us toward disease instead of health. And we need to prepare foods from scratch.” Dr. Wulfman asks some of his patients to keep a food diary. He finds some parents have made the switch to gluten-free pancakes, cereal, and cookies, but still fail to realize that those foods are not loaded with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Switching to a gluten-free diet is not the same as fixing fresh, home-cooked meals. He advises his patients to grow their own garden, even a small box type. Dr. Klinghardt finds it takes a great deal of patience to teach. “I have more recoveries by percentage than other practitioner I know by simply addressing the issue of avoiding EMF while sleeping at night. But I find it takes an autistic family three years to hear me on the issue.” --Dr. Gordon points out that it is frustrating for patients --that the medical profession has been slow to put the pieces of the puzzle together. “Your doctor probably does not know, for example, that we all have some form of toxoplasmosis --which increases your uptake of heavy metals. When you are infected with Chlamydia pneumonia, you are more likely to become a sick person. Many doctors don’t know enough about mycoplasma. It isn’t a question of whether you have Lyme or not. You have a total load of pathogens. Know that they are adversely affecting you and probably your children and their children.”---Respecting Mother Nature---Dr. Wulfman said he learned a lot from organic farmers. “What shows up when there is poor soil, inadequate water, etc., is infection. The weaker the organism, the more vulnerable to virus, bacteria, parasite – whatever.” Our bodies are walking Superfund sites. And our world is not getting any less toxic. The California Medical Association forecast that the scale of industrial chemical production is expected to grow four-fold by 2050. Add to that, the expected increase of electrosmog, and the marketing push for genetically modified foods. “The stuff we give these kids squirts right through them because they don’t have the right bacteria in the gut,” summarized Dr. Gordon. “You can’t overcome, can’t kill all the pathogens because they are coming in every direction. We need to focus on what we can do to keep the bad stuff out.”

Dosages (Black Pepper) — Single doses 300–600 mg; daily dosage 1500 mg (HHB; PHR); 5–15 whole peppercorns for hemorrhoids (HHB); 1–15 grains (MAD); spice chicken soup with black pepper for congestion, cough, or head cold (RIN). -----Contraindications, Interactions, and Side Effects (Black Pepper) — Class 1 (AHP) “Hazards and/or side effects not known for proper therapeutic dosages” (PH2). ---Extracts (Black Pepper) — In human volunteers, 20 mg piperine increases bioavailability of curcumin 20-fold (MAB). Piperine inhibits calcium transport into the mitochondria, facilitates mitochondrial release of calcium, and stimulates ATPase activity (SPI). Piperine is more potent than D-galactosamine in inhibiting glucuronidation. (ED50 with 3-hydroxybenzo(a)pyrene = 50 µM) (SPI). Piperine both depletes uridine diphosphate glucuronic acid and reduced the rate of glucuronidation. This could lead to drug potentiation. Piperine is more toxic to houseflies than pyrethrin. A mix of 0.05% piperine and 0.01 pyrethrins is more toxic than 0.1% pyrethrin (WOI). According to Rinzler, chavicine, piperidine, and piperine are all diaphoretic (RIN). Ayurvedics often prescribe black pepper in a synergistic triad called trikatu, with ginger and long pepper pepper contains five phenolic amides that are superior as antioxidants to alpha tocopherol in vitro (SPI). Although pepper contains the carcinogen safrole, it is at very low levels compared to sassafras. E/O reportedly inhibits Alternaria oryzae, A. tenuis, Aspergillus oryzae, Beauveria sp., Cryptococcus neoformans, Fusarium solani, Histoplasma capsulatum, Microsporum gypseum, Nocardia brasiliensis, Penicillium javanicum, P. striatum, Staphylococcus “albus,” Trichoderma viride, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, and Vibrio cholera.Alcoholic, aqueous, and ether extracts have taenicidal activity at 1:100 concentrations. Aqueous leaf extract raised blood pressure in dogs modestly (not stated whether oral or injected).

Leaf and berry oil may cause severe lesions of the skin. Contact dermatosis from handling leaves or EO reported. Diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting from excessive doses of the EO may occur. Sesquiterpene lactones (SLs), are aromatic compounds widely distributed in certain plant families, with highest concentrations generally found in leaves and flowers. Sheep and cattle poisonings due to SL-containing species have been reported. Cases of allergic contact dermatosis in humans have also been reported (AEH). There have been a few unfortunate fatalities to people perforating their intestines with fragmented laurel leaves. Always remove them from your spaghetti and stew (JAD; TAD). Artemorin, costunolide, costuslactone, deacetlylaurenobiolide, laurenobiolide, reynosin, santamarin, and verlorin are 8 alpha-methylene-gamma-butyrolactones documented to be the chief cause of allergy (contact dermatosis) in Laurus (TAD). With compounds like parthenolide and santamarin, this shares many of the antimigraine compounds of feverfew

Chelating Agents and there Activities
Chelation----It is a means of ridding the body of excess metals and toxins---the means of chelation can be a source of EDTA –Enzymes---Or other Antioxidant Binding Materials that will Alleviate or remove excess overload of metals or toxins in the blood stream --Here is what it can Do--Chelation Therapy (using EDTA) is beneficial for Angina patients. ---Chelation Therapy (using EDTA) is beneficial for Arrhythmias patients.---Chelation Therapy (using EDTA) is beneficial for Atherosclerosis patients.---Chelation Therapy (using EDTA) is beneficial for Hypertension patients---Chelation Therapy (using EDTA) is beneficial for Intermittent Claudication patients. The chelating agents used in Chelation Therapy bond to and chelate (remove) many Toxic Heavy Metals from the body via the Kidneys,including:--Aluminium-Arsenic-Cadmium-Lead-MercuryFStudies have shown that EDTA does not cause Calcium depletion. FOne study indicates that it normalizes Calcium levels (i.e. it increases low levels, maintains normal levels and decreases high levels).
FStudies have shown that EDTA does not cause Chromium depletion. Some concern has been raised over the possibility that EDTA may cause or exacerbate Osteoporosis (due to its known ability to chelate with Calcium). These concerns are groundless because EDTA does not enter Bone cells (Osteoblasts) - it primarily chelates Calcium from the bloodstream and Blood Vessels. Some practitioners who use EDTA for Chelation Therapy claim that the more EDTA treatments people receive, the less their incidence of Osteoporosis.
Things that can Chelate Metals out of the body
FVitamin C + NAC + B1 Removes Cadmium—Lead—Aluminum—Mercury
Dose would be 2:1 Ratio Of Vitamin C to NAC –i.e 1000mgs of Vitamin C to 500 mgs of NAC and 200mgs of B1

Fish Oil Contamination
SAN FRANCISCO, March 2--Some fish oil capsules sold as health supplements for their--Omega-3 fatty acids content have illegally undisclosed and unnecessarily high levels of contamination with polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) compounds, according to a lawsuit filed today in California court. “Consumers who want the health benefits of fish oil shouldn’t also have to take the health risks of an extremely toxic man-made chemical,” said David Roe, one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs. “And they don’t have to, since preliminary test results show that some fish oil brands have only 1/70th as much PCB contamination in them as others.” The lawsuit names eight makers and sellers of fish oil, shark oil, fish liver oil and shark liver oil supplements that have PCB contamination above the so-called “safe harbor” limits set for human PCB consumption under California’s Proposition 65. That law requires consumers to be warned about such exposures. Proposition 65, passed as a ballot initiative by a 2:1 margin in 1986, has a consistent history of forcing consumer products to eliminate toxic chemical ingredients or reduce them below published “safe harbor” limits. “While looking at the industrial fishing operations of controversial Omega Protein, we found that the industry seems very aware that fish oil supplements can be high in PCBs,” said Chris Manthey, one of the plaintiffs. “That's why many of them say their supplements have been ‘treated’ to remove or reduce PCBs,” he said. “But since they don’t say how much PCB contamination is still left, even consumers who choose‘ treated’ supplements can’t know what PCB levels they're swallowing along with their daily omega-3.”“The industry knows very well about the PCB problem in fish oils and widely markets its supplements as already treated for PCB contamination,” said Benson Chiles, also a plaintiff in the case. “They have no excuse for what we’ve been finding.”(MORE) Some “healthy” fish oil supplements come with serious chemical contamination ----The third plaintiff is the Mateel Justice Foundation, a successful enforcer of Prop. 65 innumerous contexts. Today’s suit was filed in San Francisco Superior Court, according tolead attorney William Verick. More information is available at www.fishoilsafety.com.The initial defendants named, in alphabetical order, are: CVS Pharmacy, Inc.; General Nutrition Corp. (GNC); Now Health Group, Inc.; Omega Protein, Inc.; Pharmavite LLC (Nature Made brand); Rite Aid Corp.; Solgar, Inc.; and TwinLab Corp. Plaintiffs are conducting more tests and expect to add other companies to the legal action, if and when test results of their fish oil products show levels of PCB contamination that should have been warned about under California law. “We will keep testing more fish oil products, so consumers can make the best possible choices," said Roe. Highly persistent man-made chemicals once widely used in the electricity industry, PCBs were banned for “open” uses that might expose people to them as long ago as 1973, and Congress banned their manufacture for all uses in 1979. The Great Lakes and the HudsonRiver are still massively contaminated with PCBs after decades of cleanup work; 14,000 people in Japan were poisoned by chickens fed with PCB-contaminated rice bran oil; andnumerous studies have shown the toxic effects of PCBs on babies’ development,reproductive interference, and cancer causation.PCBs were officially listed as known carcinogens and known reproductive toxins in California two decades ago, making them subject to the state’s warning requirement. The brand name products and test results that prompted the lawsuit are shown in the charts below, both as total daily exposure to PCBs and “toxicity-weighted” exposure. Note on “toxicity-weighted”: A few of the 209 compounds in the PCB family (PCB congeners) act in the same waythat dioxin does, both as carcinogen and as reproductive toxins, and it’s possible to measure PCB toxicity in dioxin equivalent terms. The World Health Organization has set equivalence factors for 12 PCB congeners that are the most chemically similar to dioxins, using the single most toxic dioxin compound of all (2,3,7,8 TCDD) as the standard. The results in the second chart below are therefore expressed as equivalents to 2,3,7,8 TCDD. But only 12 of the 209 PCB congeners can be counted this way, because those 12 are the only ones that dioxin-equivalence factors have been calculated for. So this second measurement is precise, but incomplete.

ØThe Attack on Canadian Health Food Industry
Attention: All M P s, Senators and / or staff and advisors March 20th, 2010
This is an important and urgent message from Trueman Tuck on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of concerned voters who believe in Informed Freedom of Choice.----We are very disappointed and disenchanted with what has been occurring, in what we view as our Parliament and Senate in regards to Bills C-51, C-52 and most recently C-6.---We need to clarify where each one of you stand on the division of powers, constitutional infringements and section 91  empowered criminal bureaucratic creep that is currently being used increasingly by federal bureaucrats to intrude upon our individual and unalienable ancient British Rule of Law rights, freedoms and liberties. From our point of view, it would appear that all M P s from all parties dropped the ball on reading in detail these three referenced Conservative government bills. Our established leaders from the Canadian Health Freedom Movement were not allowed to appear either before the Standing Committee on Health or the Senate Committee reviewing Bill C-6. The witnesses that were allowed to appear were clearly slanted to those that supported Bill C-6. It was left to our Canadian Coalition for Health Freedom and Friends of Freedom International [see www.canadiancoalitionforhealthfreedom.ca and www.friendsoffreedominternational.org] to mount in July through December 2009 our successful grassroots' campaign to stop the expected routine passage of Bill C-6 in the Senate prior to Christmas 2009.--Contrary to many Conservative communications recently, our Liberal Senators were directly carrying out the expressed P EO P LES' mandate by amending Bill C-6 to address some of our concerns as indicated in our detailed analysis of Bill C-6 [see CCHF's C-6 Analysis]. This detailed analysis was provided to as many Senators as possible in order to encourage an in depth and intelligent analysis by all interested Senators and M P s and their staff.---All of you need to know that over 1,000,000 individual e-mails were generated to M P s and Senators from the above mentioned websites and www.healthcanadaabuse.com.--I wanted to thank those M P s, Senators and their staff that met with me last week and let everyone know that Trueman Tuck is in Ottawa on Wednesday, March 24th and Thursday, March 25th and would very much appreciate a meeting with you and your team to discuss what our supporters would like to see as new legislation to protect the good health and well-being of Canadians more effectively.--Our hundreds of thousands of Informed Freedom of Choice supporters do want new and improved federal legislation, just not bills designed in the fashion of C-51, C-52 and C-6.--Unfortunately, whoever it is and wherever "THEY” are that drives the P MO, P CO and DOJ to continually force BIG P HARMA’S and their allies Global agenda onto our federal regulatory governance systems both via Parliamentary and the federal bureaucracy has to be stopped and now. We want to help all of you to design effective new and innovative legislation to reform Health Canada and the CFIA and to be based upon evidence targeted poisonous products regardless of what they are or where they are manufactured. It is also important that our new federal legislation respects individual and provincial sovereign rights.--REMEMBER OUR 1997 P OSITIONS HAVE NOT CHANGED – "Our Healthy Dietary Food Supplements” are not "Drugs” and "It’s Our Body and Should Be Our Choice”! ---As you are well aware our Health Freedom Delegations speaks for hundreds of thousands of concerned constituents who are not satisfied with the current government’s handling of these issues since taking office. You are also aware of the impact that our one million plus Health Freedom Movement's voters have on an election. Our votes have traditionally gone to the Reform P arty and Conservatives. Because of the handling our Health Freedom Movement’s issues by the Conservatives prior to the last election a large percentage of our voters changed away from the Conservatives and swung ridings thus denying the Conservatives their desired majority government in the last election.Since Bill C-6 was introduced Health Canada and other federal bureaucracies have been escalating their unlawful, abusive and against public interest misconduct [see example below in links].Health Canada has operated with complete immunity to accountability for over 15 years. There has been a complete failure of the federal Standing Committee on Health and Joint Scrutiny of Regulations Committee and various Senate Committees to investigate on public record decades of documented complaints against Health Canada Inspectorate officials. There has been a complete failure to build on the 37th and 38th P arliament Bill C-420 issues to bring Food sub-class legislation similar to the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health Education Act which largely resolved our sister US Health Freedom Movement’s issues Prior to our meeting please review the five  excellent Standing Committee on Health 1998 Reports [Liberal, Conservative, Reform, ND P & Bloc] that lays the foundations for possible solutions that are currently being ignored.---The drug-sub-class Natural Health P roduct Regulations is unlawful, against public interest and was implemented by the P CO and DOJ without P arliament approval on January 1st, 2004 and is a complete failure and has consumed hundreds of millions of dollars needlessly and has become another "Gun Registry” fiasco.--The Natural Health P roduct Regulations, Schedule F regulations and DIN regulations all need to be reviewed by both referenced committees ASA P and rescinded if found unconstitutional.

Recipes For Making SSKI Solution
This section contains two recipes: one for a liter-sized quantity and one for a 2-ounce bottle-sized quantity: • One Liter of SSKI The recipe for making one liter of SSKI is as follows: 1000 grams (1 kilograms) potassium iodide (KI) 680 milliter (ml.) hot, purified water Additional purified water to make one liter Mix the potassium iodide in the hot water and allow it to cool to about 25˚ degrees Celsius (77˚ Fahrenheit) and add sufficient purified water to make 1000 ml. (one liter). The resulting solution should be clear, colorless, and odorless and have a very salty taste. Store the liquid in a brown glass bottle.
• 2-Ounces of SSKI
The recipe for making two ounces of SSKI is as follows: 2 ounces KI (4 tablespoons or 56.7g.) Purified water From Cresson H. Kearny’s Nuclear War Survival Skills by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (from www.ki4u.com):
To prepare a saturated solution of potassium iodide, fill a bottle about 60% full of crystalline or granular potassium iodide. (A 2-fluid-ounce bottle, made of dark glass and having a solid, non-metallic, screwcap top, is a good size for a family. About 2 ounces of crystalline or granular potassium iodide is needed to fill a 2-fluid-ounce bottle about 60% full.) Next, pour safe, room-temperature water into the bottle until it is about 90% full. Then close the bottle tightly and shake it vigorously for at least 2 minutes. Some of the solid potassium iodide should remain permanently undissolved at the bottom of the bottle; this is proof that the solution is saturated. Iodine Remedies: Secrets From the Sea 120 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Because most people have never heard of SSKI, the following points may clear up a few questions: • Why Does Potassium Iodide Provide Protection in a Radiation Emergency? Radioactive Iodine (Radioactive iodine-131) is a radioisotope that is released in a nuclear power plant accident and a nuclear bomb explosion. If the thyroid gland is saturated with non- radioactive iodine, the gland will be prevented from taking up the radioisotope.
Athough radiation protection is included in Talking Point #20, the subject of radiation emergencies is beyond the scope of this book. For more details about this subject, visit the KI4U Web site (Note: KI4U founder Shane Connor was interviewed on CNN.

MORGELLONS GROWTH INHIBITION
Mar 15 2010
Note: I am not offering any medical advice or diagnosis with the presentation of this information. I am acting solely as an independent researcher providing the results of extended observation and analysis of unusual biological conditions that are evident. Each individual must work with their own health professional to establish any appropriate course of action and any health related comments in this paper are solely for informational purposes and they are from my own perspective.The growth of the bacterial-like organisms that appear to be at the foundation of the so-called Morgellons condition has been positively inhibited. The basis of the rationale that is used in these trials has been outlined in detail in a previous report entitled Morgellons : A Discovery and a Proposal1. The basis of that report is the application of a set of specific antioxidants that inhibit the growth of the organism(s) in the presence of the hydroxyl free radical and the creation of a more alkaline environment. It has been established in that earlier report that the organism(s) thrive in an acidic environment in the presence of the hydroxyl radical and oxidizers in general. The basic strategy that has been adopted is a transformation of the growth environment to a more alkaline condition along with adding specific antioxidants that are directed toward the scavenging of the hydroxyl radical. Please also refer to the earlier paper for the rationale behind the selection of the particular antioxidants that have been used.There is absolutely no statement herein that indicates the particular organism(s) has been terminated or extinguished, only that growth of the organism(s) under the specific conditions and trials mentioned has been inhibited. There is no assurance that all agents used in these trials is required to produce these results, nor that they be used at the arbitrary dosage levels that have been chosen for the cultures. Future work will examine the reduction or restriction of these same agents and dosages with the goal of replicating the results.This paper shall be brief as it confirms the proposal of the preceding paper more explicitly. The primary purpose of the paper will be to demonstrate the inhibition that takes place in confirmation of the earlier work and to enumerate the specific antioxidants that have been used in these trials. There remains an overwhelming amount of work that remains to be done, and these results simply promote one particular strategy that is worthy of exhaustive and intense study. It is anticipated that other antioxidants that emphasize scavenging the hydroxyl radical and that alkalize the growth environment may also be effective.
REPORTS & EXPLANATIONS
The growth of the early stage of the culture in an unrestrained form in more detail. Examination of the detailed morphology of the culture requires high level magnification (approx. 10,000x) and has been reported on extensively in earlier papers. This culture is approximately 3 to 4 days old.
The growth of the early stage of the culture in a restrained form in more detail. The culture has been subjected to three specific hydroyl radical scavenging antioxidants : ascorbic acid, sodium citrate and glycerol. The absence of the bacterial-like stage of growth of the culture is apparent. This culture is approximately 3 to 4 days old.
A more advanced stage of the bacterial-like (chlaymidia-like and mycoplasma-like) growth of the culture under condtions identical to that immediately above. This culture is approxmately 1-2 weeks old and is in white wine. The success and advantages of the white wine and clear culture (simulated wine) has been previously described.
The more advanced stage of surface filament growth in a wine culture medium as has been reported on extensively and as developed by an independent researcher that is in the process of duplicating a portion of this work. This photograph represents the first presentation of the filament stage of growth in a white wine vs. a red wine environment. This demonstrates the lack of dependence upon the color of a red or white wine to produce this culminating stage of growth. This culture has been developed from a separate red-wine filament culture and not from the bacterial stage exhibited above. This filament growth is identical to that which originates from the dental sample cultures that have been reported on extensively in this site. The filament growth exhibited here has also been shown to be identical in form, size and structure to that developed from certain environmental samples, namely that which has been refused for identification by the U.S. Envriomental Protection Agency.

At this point, no distinctions in growth have been determined between different varieties of wine, either red or white. The white wine cultures offer the advantage of clarity in observation.-Some reports on toxicity levels of ascorbic acid and Vitamin C reported on are as follows:
"Since ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin, toxic levels are not built up or stored in the body, and any excess is lost mostly through urine. If extremely large amounts are taken gastrointestinal problems may appear, but will normalize when the intake is cut or reduced. To determine a level where a person might experience discomfort is difficult, since some people can easily stomach up to 25,000 mg per day, while others start having a problem at 600 or 1,000 mg."3
"Vitamin C exhibits remarkably low toxicity. The LD50 (the dose that will kill 50% of a population) in rats is generally accepted to be 11.9 grams per kilogram of body weight when taken orally. The LD50 in humans remains unknown, owing to medical ethics that preclude experiments that would put patients at risk of harm. However, as with all substances tested in this way, the LD50 is taken as a guide to its toxicity in humans and no data to contradict this has been found."4
Approximately 30 mg. of ascorbic acid has been added to the volume of 30 ml of white wine (approx. 1000 mg. / kg of solution). Equating this roughly to the human body (assume 70 kg.), this translates to a single dosage of approximately 70 gms. Assuming an ingestion of 1000 mg per day, this equates to distributing the above dosage over a period of approximately 70 days to reach the equivalent result. An ingestion rate of 10,000 mg. of ascorbic acid per day leads to a time period of approximately 7 days to reach an equivalent result. This example points out the outstanding and continuous need for all individuals to consult with their own medical professionals to manage their own individual health requirements and objectives; I have not and I will not provide any medical or diagnostic advice. I have reported and I will report on laboratory conditions and the results achieved from that work. Approximately 0.1 ml (~.126gms.) of glycerol (USP) (glycerine) has been added to the volume of 30 ml. of white wine (equates to approx. 4.2 gms / kg.).
With respect to glycerol, some of the toxicity information available is as follows:5
IPR-RAT LD50 8700
"A recent GLP compliant oral gavage study in rats given glycerol formal for 90 days at dosages up to 25 mg/kg indicated no treatment changes in physical signs of animals, bodyweight gain, hematological, biochemical or urine analysis."6
To equate 25 mg. / kg. as referenced in the latter report to a human body, this equates to a daily intake of approximately 1.75 gms. / 70 kg.
From the former report, LD50 (lethal dose 50% probability) orally of glycerol is therefore approximately 12.6 gms / kg. for rats. This equates to approximately 882 gms. per 70 kg. of the human body. At 25 mg. / kg., 4.2 gms. / kg. is to be distributed over a period of appoximately 168 days to reach an equivalent dosage.
Approximately 0.25 ml of sodium citrate solution has been added to the volume of 30 ml. of white wine. The sodium citrate solution has been prepared by combining lemon juice with baking soda to reaction completion.
With respect to the toxicity of sodium citrate, the following is identified:
"LD50: Oral rat LD50 >8 g/Kg"7
This equates to the human body in mass at approximately > 560 gms / 70 kg. Sodium citrate is an alkalizing agent, may have interactions with other ingredients or compounds and its potential application must be coordinated and directed though medical consultation8,9. If any information in this section is found to be incorrect or requires revision, please contact me at [email@example.com] with the appropriate and supporting documentation. Future trials will consider reductions in dosage since at this point the dosage reference levels are entirely aribtrary.

Phosphorous Threat and Solution
Phosphorus from poultry litter can be used as a fertilizer, and the litter can then be recycled as bedding material or used for bioenergy conversion. (Credit: Photo courtesy of Matias Vanotti, ARS) ScienceDaily (Mar. 10, 2008) — Underground phosphorus deposits around the world are mined for use as a much-valued fertilizer. Now Agricultural Research Service (ARS) soil scientists Ariel Szogi, Matias Vanotti and Patrick Hunt have found a way to “mine” the phosphorus in poultry manure. In 2006, the United States produced 8.9 billion broilers—and piles and piles of residual litter rich in phosphorus and nitrogen. Although poultry litter is typically used by farmers to fertilize their field crops with these two nutrients, it usually contains more phosphorus than the crops need. The excess phosphorus has the potential to wash away and pollute nearby rivers and lakes. Szogi, Vanotti and Hunt have developed a method to obtain the phosphorus in poultry litter—consisting of a rapid removal and recovery of phosphorus in solid form—which they’ve dubbed “Quick Wash.” ARS has applied for a patent on this process. The process selectively removes up to 80 percent of the phosphorus from poultry litter while leaving the nitrogen. The washed poultry litter can be safely applied to farm fields as a balanced fertilizer or used again as a bedding material. It can also serve as a feedstock for bioenergy production. U.S. farmers use some 3.7 billion pounds of phosphorus in annual crop production. But poultry and other livestock produce about 1 billion pounds more phosphorus than livestock producers can use. This innovation provides an environmentally sound phosphorus recovery system that livestock producers can use to manage the excess phosphorus in manure. Poultry producers also benefit by producing a concentrated phosphorus product that can be moved easily off farms and reused as fertilizer. ARS is interested in finding business partners to move the product to market.

ScienceDaily (Mar. 17, 2010) — Phosphorus is just as important to agriculture as water. But a lack of availability and accessibility of phosphorus is an emerging problem that threatens our capacity to feed the global population. Like nitrogen and potassium, it is a nutrient that plants take up from the soil and it is crucial to soil fertility and crop growth."Unless something is done, the scarcity of phosphorous will cause problems of a global dimension. As early as 2035 it is calculated that the demand for phosphorus map outpace the supply," says Dana Cordell, who presented her thesis at the Department of Thematic Studies -- Water and Environmental Studies, Linköping University, Sweden on the implications of phosphorus scarcity on global food security. Phosphorous is extracted from phosphate rock, a non-renewable resource that is used almost exclusively in agriculture. Two thirds of the world's resources are in China, Morocco, and Western Sahara. "The demand for phosphorus has increased and prices soared by 800 percent between 2006 and 2008," says Dana Cordell. Cordell maintains that the shortage of phosphorus in not simply due to a drop in the availability of phosphate ore. Many of the world's farmers do not have enough purchasing power to be able to afford and use phosphorus-based fertilizer, which means their soil is becoming depleted. What's more, phosphorus use in the food system from mine to field to fork is currently so inefficient that only one fifth of the phosphorus in the rock that is mined actually makes its way into our food. "There is a lack of effective international governance to secure long-term access to phosphorus for food production," says Dana Cordell, who adds that the way phosphorus resources are handled needs to be improved. Phosphorus needs to be applied and management in agriculture more efficiently, we need to eat more <![if !supportAnnotations]> [U1]<![endif]> vegetarian food, and increase efficiency throughout the food chain. At the same time we need to recover and reuse a large part of the phosphorus that exists in crop residues, food waste, manures human faeces and other sources. "If nothing is done, food production runs the risk of a hard landing in the future, including further fertilizer price increases, increasing environmental effects of pollution, energy and resource consumption, smaller harvests, reduced farmer livelihoods and reduced food security," says Dana Cordell. The dissertation is titled The Story of Phosphorus: Sustainability Implications of Global Phosphorus Scarcity for Food Security.

Manure from dairy cows fed organic diets contained different concentrations of plant nutrients, including phosphorus, metals and minerals compared to manure from cows fed conventional diets. (Credit: Photo by Scott Bauer.) ScienceDaily (May 7, 2009) — Dairy cows that produce USDA-certified organic milk also produce manure that may gradually replenish soil nutrients and potentially reduce the flow of agricultural pollutants to nearby water sources, according to findings by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists and colleagues. Cows on organic dairy farms generally consume forage feeds cultivated on soils that are fertilized with manure and compost rather than manufactured fertilizers. This organic management, in turn, may significantly affect how easily nutrients are converted in soil into forms readily taken up by crops. Working with colleagues at the ARS New England Plant, Soil, and Water Laboratory in Orono, Maine, and elsewhere, chemist Zhongqi He showed that conventional and organic dairy manures from commercial dairy farms differed in concentrations of plant nutrients, including phosphorus, metals and minerals. The team used two different types of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to pinpoint these differences. Solution NMR spectroscopy is already widely used to analyze phosphorus content in manure. For this study, the scientists also analyzed manure content using solid-state NMR spectroscopy, which is especially effective at finding unique “signatures” of the different kinds of metals and minerals. The researchers found that the two types of manure had at least 17 different chemical forms of phosphorus that varied in concentrations. The organic dairy manure had higher levels of phosphorus, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc and magnesium. Organic dairy manure also contained more types of phosphorus found in association with calcium and magnesium. Such forms are comparatively slow to dissolve and would thus gradually release the nutrients. Slow-release fertilizers generally increase the likelihood that they eventually will be taken up by crops, rather than being washed out of fields into nearby surface or groundwater sources. Because of this, slow-release fertilizers often can be applied at comparatively low rates. Manure produced by cows in organic production systems may show similar characteristics compared to manure from conventional systems.

Legal Action Against Health Canada

From: John Biggs <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: Urgent: Maintain your freedom of access and support upcoming Legal
Action against Health Canada
To: John Biggs <email@example.com>
Now there is something we can do and that is to get behind the NHPPA Legal Challenge of the NHP Regulations, and support them in their efforts to maintain all of our freedoms.
To all of my friends, business contacts, customers, etc.
As the glow of the Olympics fades, Canadians need to keep clear in their minds the distinction between the intentions of the Canadian people, versus that of their government. The biggest challenges we are going to face in the upcoming months and years are government policies that seek to suppress our liberty and health: Bills such as the soon-to-be-reintroduced C-6, and C-51, and the Natural Health Product Regulations, currently being implemented, and placing strangleholds on the industry.
Health Canada is the vehicle for all of them, and the power the agency awards itself makes a person shake their head in disbelief.
Using the Natural Health Product (NHP) Regulations, they are eliminating thousands of unapproved natural products that have killed no one, have been popular for decades, and have helped millions remain well. Even right now in Ontario, Health Canada is entering manufacturing facilities and ordering removal of any products that do not have an NHP #, despite their claim in late November 09 that they would be pursuing no enforcement of the Regulations in 2010. This is yet another in an endless list of Health Canada lies, deceptions, and smokescreens.
If all concerned Canadian citizens and businesses dont take a stand against Health Canada in the courts now, I would estimate that within one to two years, the supplements Canadians have to choose from will number less than 25,000, down from 2003 levels of approximately 70,000. Of these remaining products, virtually all will be single ingredients. If the agenda is allowed to progress, this will be cut down to a meaningless fraction...just like in Europe.
Think it can't happen? Guess what... it's happening! Slowly and incrementally, relying on human nature to forget about the resources we used to have, and accept what we are now being allowed. Countless suppliers will go out of business, along with an untold number of health food stores so many rely on. We need to stand together as a people and stop it.
So often the reaction is, But what can we do? Well now there is something we can do, and that is to get behind the NHPPA Constitutional/Legal Challenge of the NHP Regulations, and support them in their efforts to maintain all of our freedoms. That means taking political action by writing in your letters of protest, and sending in your financial contribution.
If you're not going to do it, ...who is? And if none of us do it...we're toast.
1. Read the letter, and send it in, (or better yet, write your own). It is meant to be printed double-sided, but you can also tape it back to back. (Remember: do not use any staples, and there is no postage required.)
2. Visit www.nhppa.org to make your financial contribution today, or mail it in using the attached forms.

Lets stop this injustice before it further undermines our health and freedoms.
The ability to look after ourselves and our loved ones hangs in the balance.

NHPPA ACTION PLAN
CHIPPED PETS DEVELOP
FAST-GROWING, LETHAL TUMORS
Owners, Medical Reports Point to Link Between RFID Chips and Cancers in Canines Highly aggressive tumors developed around the microchip implants of two American dogs, killing one of the pets and leaving the other terminally ill. Their owners --- and pathology and autopsy reports --- have suggested a link between the chips and the formation of the fast-growing cancers. In the town of Paeonian Springs, Va., a five-year-old male Bullmastiff named Seamus died in February, nine months after developing a "hemangio-sarcoma" --- a rare, malignant form of cancer that strikes connective tissues and can kill even humans in three to six months. The tumor appeared last May between the dog's shoulder blades where a microchip had been implanted; by September, a "large mass" had grown with the potential to spread to the lungs, liver and spleen, according a pathology report from the Blue Ridge Veterinary Clinic in Purcellville, Va.Originally scheduled to receive just a biopsy, Seamus underwent emergency surgery. A foot-long incision was opened to extract the 4-pound-3-ounce tumor, and four drains were needed to remove fluid where the tumor had developed. When Howard Gillis, the dog's owner, picked up his pet the following day, the attending veterinarian stunned him with this question: Did you know your dog had been microchipped twice, and that both chips were in or around the tumor? "While we knew of one chip, which we had put in him at a free local county clinic, we knew nothing of a second chip," Gillis said. "We believe one of them was put in Seamus by the breeder from whom we bought him when he was about nine months old." By December, the cancer was back --- and the energetic, playful 150-pound dog was huffing and puffing, struggling to walk. Seamus "was 150 pounds of heart," Gillis said in a recent interview. "He wanted to live." Gillis said he "got the microchip because I didn't want him stolen. I thought I was doing right. There were never any warnings about what a microchip could do, but I saw it first-hand. That cancer was something I could see growing every day, and I could see it taking his life ... It just ate him up." To keep his beloved dog from suffering further, he had him put to sleep two months later. In Memphis, a five-year-old Yorkshire Terrier named Scotty was diagnosed with cancer at the Cloverleaf Animal Clinic in December. A tumor between the dog's shoulder blades --- precisely where a microchip had been embedded --- was described as malignant lymphoma. A tumor the size of a small balloon was removed; encased in it was a microchip. Scotty was given no more than a year to live. But the dog's owner, Linda Hawkins, wasn't satisfied with just a prognosis: She wanted to know whether the presence of the microchip had anything to do with Scotty's illness. Initially, her veterinarian was skeptical that a chip implant could trigger cancer; research has shown that vaccine injections in dogs and cats can lead to tumors. In a December pathology report on Scotty, Evan D. McGee wrote: "I was previously suspicious of a prior unrelated injection site reaction" beneath the tumor. "However, it is possible that this inflammation is associated with other foreign debris, possibly from the microchip." Observing the glass-encapsulated tag under a microscope, he noted it was partially coated with a translucent material, normally used to keep embedded microchips from moving around the body. "This coating could be the material inciting the inflammatory response," McGee wrote. Hawkins sent the pathology report to Home Again, the national pet recovery and identification network that endorses microchipping of pets. After having a vet review the document, the company said the chip did not cause Scotty's tumor --- then in January sent Hawkins a $300 check to cover her clinical expenses, no questions asked. "I find it hard to believe that a company will just give away $300 to somebody who calls in, unless there is something bad going on," Hawkins says. Having spent $4,000 on medical treatment for Scotty since December, Hawkins accepted the money. But she says it hardly covers her $900 monthly outlays for chemotherapy and does little to ease her pet's suffering. "Scotty is just a baby. He won't live the 15 years he's supposed to ...I did something I thought a responsible pet owner should --- microchip your pet --- and to think that it killed him ... It just breaks your heart." Scotty and Seamus aren't the only pets to have suffered adverse reactions from microchips. Published reports have detailed malignant tumors in two other chipped dogs; in one dog, the researchers said cancer appeared linked to the presence of the embedded chip; in the other, the cancer's cause was uncertain. Last year, a Chihuahua bled to death in the arms of his distraught owners in Agua Dulce, Calif., just hours after undergoing a chipping procedure. The veterinarian who performed the chipping confirmed that dog died from blood loss associated with the microchip. In another case, a kitten died instantly when a microchip was accidentally injected into its brain stem. And in another, a cat was paralyzed when an implant entered its spinal column. The implants have been widely reported to migrate within animals' bodies, and can cause abscesses and infection. In 2007, The Associated Press reported on a series of veterinary and toxicology studies that found that microchip implants had "induced" malignant tumors in some lab animals. Published in veterinary and toxicology journals between 1996 and 2006, the studies found that between 1 and 10 percent of lab mice and rats injected with microchips developed malignant tumors, most of them encasing the implants.

New research has uncovered more than 20 compounds in maple syrup from Canada that have been linked to human health. ScienceDaily (Mar. 25, 2010) — Before you dig in to your next stack of French toast or waffles, you might want to pour on pure maple syrup.--That's because University of Rhode Island researcher Navindra Seeram, who specializes in medicinal plant research, has found more than 20 compounds in maple syrup from Canada that have been linked to human health, 13 of which are newly discovered in maple syrup. In addition, eight of the compounds have been found in the Acer (maple) family for the first time.--The URI assistant professor of biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences in URI's College of Pharmacy presented his findings March 21 at the American Chemical Society's Annual Meeting in San Francisco. The project was made possible by Conseil pour le développement de l'agriculture du Québec (CDAQ), with funding provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Advancing Canadian Agriculture and Agri-Food (ACAAF) program.Several of these anti-oxidant compounds newly identified in maple syrup are also reported to have anti-cancer, anti-bacterial and anti-diabetic properties.
Prior to the study, the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers already knew that its product was full of naturally occurring minerals such as zinc, thiamine and calcium. But it enlisted Seeram to research the presence of plant anti-oxidants. The Federation awarded Seeram a two-year, $115,000 grant with the help of the CDAQ and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. His research continues to determine if the compounds exist in beneficial quantities.---Serge Beaulieu, president of the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, said Seeram's lab is but one in an expanding multi-national network of research facilities dedicated to the study of maple products from Canada.--"We are proud that our producers are generously supporting this research, bringing to light a greater understanding of the gastronomic and health benefits of maple products. It is not just for Canada, but for the welfare of consumers around the world," Beaulieu said.Geneviève Béland, federation marketing director, said the group has learned that maple products are much more than sugars with only calories to contribute.--"Recent research findings, such as those by Dr. Seeram, reveal a whole array of bioactive compounds that promise to offer many health benefits," she said. "Our journey to understanding these benefits has just begun."---Seeram, who was named the 2009 Young Scientist of the Year by the American Chemical Society's Division of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, said his goal is to educate the research community and the public about the many benefits of a variety of plant and berry foods, as well as natural products. His message is receiving widespread attention. Seeram had two of the Top Ten Most Accessed Articles in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2008.---"We know that plants must have strong anti-oxidant mechanisms because they are in the sun throughout their lives," Seeram said. "We already know that berries, because of their bright colors, are high in anti-oxidants.--"Now we are looking at maple syrup, which comes from the sap located just inside the bark, which is constantly exposed to the sun."During his maple syrup research, Seeram and his research team found phenolics, the beneficial class of anti-oxidant compounds also found in berries. "We speculated that the sugar maple is wounded when it is tapped for its sap, and that it secretes phenolics as a defense mechanism."---Seeram said the sap probably has low concentrations of these native phenolics. "But when you boil the sap down, there could be higher levels because syrup is a highly concentrated liquid. Plus, the natural plant bioactives could remain intact or undergo process-induced chemical changes during the heating process resulting in further-derived bioactive compounds."---The biomedical scientist said such early research is exciting because many people would not associate such a sugary product with healthy biological properties.--"At this point, we are saying, if you choose to put syrup on your pancakes, it may be healthier to use real maple syrup," he said. "The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers found that 50 percent of consumers don't know whether the syrup they consume is real maple syrup."---Seeram acknowledges that real maple syrup is pricier than commercial brands with maple flavoring or even those with no or very little maple syrup. "But you pay for what you get and you get what you pay for, meaning there are consequences for what you eat.---"We know that anti-oxidants are present in the leaves, bark and twigs of the maple tree, so looking at the sap make sense."--Seeram now has a sugar maple tree trunk sitting in his lab so he can begin a more comprehensive study of the entire tree."In a certain sense, people view sap as the life blood of the tree," Seeram said. "Maple syrup is unique in that it is the only commercial product in our diet that comes from a plant's sap. This is a niche resource for northeast North America. Canada is the biggest producer of maple syrup and the United States is the biggest consumer."-- Story Source:Adapted from materials provided by University of Rhode Island, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS.
Tintillating commercial food smells contain noxious gases, researchers say

WEDNESDAY, March 24 (HealthDay News) -- The enticing aromas that restaurants emit are actually a type of air pollution that could pose a risk to your health and the environment, U.S. researchers report. Gases and tiny solid particles are among the pollutants pumped out by commercial food cooking, according to Deborah Gross, of Carleton College in Northfield, Minn.--"While that mouth-watering smell may whet our appetite, it comes from the emission of smoke from the cooking process into the air that we breathe," she said in a news release.---Gross and a colleague measured the aerosol particles -- solid and liquid droplets -- while cooking food using typical commercial appliances -- pizzas in an oven, steaks in a broiler, and hamburgers on a griddle, clamshell broiler and charcoal fire.The highest levels of emissions came from fatty foods cooked with high heat, especially with open flames, such as cooking hamburgers on a conveyor broiler. For every 1,000 pounds of hamburger cooked, there were 25 pounds of emissions, they found. For every 1,000 pounds of pizza cooked, there were three pounds of emissions. Noting that certain oils can increase emissions, they said that for every 1,000 pounds of chicken cooked in a wok with peanut oil, there were 45 pounds of emissions.This type of research may lead to better methods of food-related emission control, the researchers said.--"Not only do these emissions affect air quality, but they contain chemicals that are known carcinogens," Gross said. The study was to be presented March 23 at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco.

Dosages (Celery) — 200 g root boiled in 500 g water taking 1 cup every 3 hours as antigalactic (JFM); 1–2 leaves for colic (DEP); 1–4 g powdered seed (KAP; PNC); 1–2 tsp seed/cup water (APA); 1–2 g dry seed (PED); 2 g dry seed:10 ml alcohol/10 ml water (PED); 1 g mashed seed/cup hot water (PH2); 1.75 tsp crushed seed/cup water (APA); 0.05–0.1 ml (PNC); 0.5–1 tsp tincture to 3 ×/day (APA; WIC); 0.3–1.5 ml liquid extract (PNC); 0.3–1.2 ml liquid extract (1:1 in 60% alcohol) 3 ×/day (CAN); 0.5–2 g or by decoction 1:5, 3 ×/day (CAN); 2 (500 mg) capsules (450 mg celery extract StX to contain at least 9.9 mg volatile oil in 50 mg synergistic base of whole celery seed powder) 2 ×/day, before meals (NH). Often standardized to 2.2% volatile oil. Contraindications, Interactions, and Side Effects (Celery) — Class 2b, 2d. Individuals with renal disorders should use with caution. Commission E reports potential allergenicity, including anaphylactic shock. Photosensitizing. Contains phototoxic furanocoumarins (AHP). CAN cautions that the furanocoumarins may cause phototoxicity and dermatosis. Still, they summarize that no side effects or toxicity are documented for celery seed. Photosensitivity reactions have been reported as a result of external contact with celery stems. Even anaphylactic reactions are reported following oral ingestion of the stems. Archives of Dermatology (1990) reported severe phototoxicity in a woman consuming celeriac and then going to a tanning parlor. The new Herbal PDR (Gruenwald et al., 1998) notes that levels of phototoxic furanocoumarins can rise 200-fold under storage conditions, especially if the root is fungally or yeast infected (PHR). No side effects, toxicity documented for celery fruit (CAN). Persons with kidney problems should be cautious. The drug is contraindicated in inflammation of the kidneys, since apiaceous EOs may increase the inflammation as a result of epithelial irritation. Contraindicated during pregnancy (uterotonic activity demonstrated for the EO (CAN)). Celery seed oil abortifacient (JFM). Oil, though stated to be nonirritant, nonphototoxic, and nonsensitizing in humans, is also reported to have uterotonic activity; the seeds are said to affect the menstrual cycle and even to be abortifacient (CAN). There’s a rare allergy, Birch-Celery Syndrome; people sensitive to birch or mugwort (watch out moxibustionists) pollen may have an immediate reaction just eating celery or taking celery seed products. “Hazards and/or side effects not known for proper therapeutic dosages” (PH2) (But, regrettably, it doesn’t give those therapeutic dosage levels.) So far, in my 5.5 years on celery seed extract, I have not knowingly suffered any side effects from the 2–4 capsules or tablets I take a day, every day, without fail, for the prevention of the gout crisis. Celery herb, seed, and root unapproved for therapeutic application, as far as Germany’s Commission E is concerned. Extracts (Celery) — Extracts antiedemic, antiinflammatory, hypoglycemic, and hypotensive. LD50 >5000 mg/kg orl rat (CAN). Juice choleretic. Chamomile is a better source of the COX-2 inhibitor apigenin (to 0.8% ZMB), but celery stalks may contain to 0.2%, making it the best food farmacy source (COX). Celery seed oil bacteriostatic against Bacillus pumilus, Bacillus subtilis, Corynebacterium diptheriae, Pseudomonas solanacearum, Salmonella typhi, Shigella dysenteriae, Staphylococcus albus, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus faecalis, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Vibrio cholerae. The seed oil shows a chemotactic effect and cercaricidal activity of the cercaria of Schistosoma mansoni (SPI).
Celery Seed Recipe---take the celery seed and add 1-2 tablespoons into a blender and then add clear alcohol whether wine or spirit and add ½ cup of the menstrum ( the alcohol) and at high speed for 10 minutes blend—afterwards strain into a container of glass bottle and date it and use it as you see fit---this will as well increase testosterone due to it’s androsterone content so this can be a good mix with garlic for those who are interested in rectifying there androgens---this to can be combo’s with other herbs( spices ) for an increase or repairing of the brain and the areas of brain that are susceptible to break down ---such as the acetyl cholne and the arteries due to plaque build up
