Beer for Health?

http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/how-stuff-works/images/beer.jpg


'If you are fond of beer and drink it moderately, it’s time to rejoice, because there are many more benefits to beer than you could have imagined. It’s indeed the kind of news that will make you want to rub your eyes in disbelief because it’s hard to consider beer as being something that is good for your health. However, this is true, because researchers are constantly coming across various connections between beer and good health. 

Here’s a look at some of the benefits that will have you reaching for your glass of chilled lager or ale and not regretting doing so at all. Do note that this does not mean you can guzzle beer all the time in the hopes of attaining good health, because, after all, too much of anything is never good for you.'

Homemade Easter Egg Dyes


'The year the Easter Bunny brought my kids organic, all-natural, yogurt-covered raisins didn’t go over very well–but at least my daughters are gung-ho for dying Easter eggs with homemade, plant-based dyes. We rummage and smoosh and boil, and they are amazed and delighted by the colors we create with a bunch of oddball ingredients from the kitchen. They love the messy magic, and my simmering neurosis about synthetic food dyes is quelled.'

Berries for Better Health

http://www.greenworld365.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/strawberries-blueberries.jpg


'At our house, the arrival of fresh berries always is an anticipated event, whether we’re gathering wild berries, harvesting our own fresh from the garden, or buying them at our local farmers’ market or favorite store. Eaten just as they are, berries are exceptionally delicious, with all the appeal of a snack food—just rinse and eat. When the summer sun brings their flavor to peak perfection, fresh-picked berries are undoubtedly one of the highlights of summer foods. 

And whether used fresh in salads or cooked in recipes from appetizers to desserts, berries make just about any food taste better. As the crown jewels of summer, berries contain some of nature’s most powerful antioxidants for a host of health benefits, such as lowering the risk of certain cancers and heart disease, and strengthening your body’s natural defenses.'

One of the Best Cancer Preventions is Free: Walking

 http://www.co.cowlitz.wa.us/health/images/graphics/people_walking.jpg


'Walking offers us a chance to move our bodies, keeping our systems running smoothly without the over exertion of other high powered activities such as jogging or competitive sports. And this calmer rhythm found in walking, especially walking in nature, is a true blessing in supporting the overall health of our bodies, minds and spirits.

New research shows that regular walking can reduce the risk of breast, bowel and other cancers significantly. It has long been known that regular exercise can improve risk factors for many serious health conditions including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and more. Now researchers are saying you don't have to be an athlete -- that regular, moderate exercise can provide just as many health benefits by improving oxygenation, circulation, immune response and helping to flush out toxins.

Is Healing All About Voltage?

 

'We heal by making new cells. Making new cells requires -50 millivolts. 

We get sick when we cannot achieve -50 millivolts and thus cannot make new cells. We are thus stuck in chronic disease. All chronic disease is defined by having low voltage.

Chronic disease occurs when voltage drops below -20 millivolts. As voltage drops, these things happen:

1.Cells dont have enough energy to work correctly.

2.Chronic pain is caused by low voltage.


3.As voltage drops, the amount of oxygen in cells drops, switching from aerobic (oxygen- available) metabolism to anaerobic (oxygen diminished) metabolism.


4.With anaerobic metabolism, one unit of fat makes only two molecules of ATP whereas with aerobic metabolism, one unit of fat makes 32 molecules of ATP.


5.With anaerobic metabolism, microorganisms begin to grow and put out toxins to dissolve our cells so they can eat us.'

Medical Gestapo Working in Japan

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_gcA0ZuKGkI8/TGmG0VukyCI/AAAAAAAAIa8/e7mhmwOaR-E/s400/No_Soup_For_You.png



 by Dr. Mark Sircus

'In this case it’s actually NO ZEOLITE FOR THE JAPANESE!! The medical Gestapo was recently spotted working in Japan getting the police to charge two people with the selling of zeolite. The substance, sold as “Premium Zeolite,” was billed as absorbing radioactive substances and allowing the body to excrete them within six hours. The two were charged with selling medicine without a license. A month later we hear that they are using tons of zeolite at the nuclear plant to control radiation. 

What gives?

The operator of the crippled nuclear power plant in Fukushima has begun dropping sandbags filled with an absorbent into the Pacific Ocean to try to reduce the danger from radiation. The bags are filled with zeolite, better known as the active material sprinkled in cat litter boxes to absorb odors. In this case, zeolite is meant to take up caesium that has been detected at high levels along the Fukushima coast.

Dr. Garry Gordon (who knows much more about detoxification and chelation than most other doctors and certainly more than medical officials who still see no need for heavy metal testing or treatment) has a lot to say about zeolite for detoxification and radioprotection:'

A Government of Monsanto, by Monsanto, and for Monsanto

http://farmwars.info/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Approved.png



'With help from the FDA and USDA, the biotech industry is set to completely take over our food supply with genetically modified ingredients, irregardless of the wishes of “we the people.” Through collusion, subterfuge, and a bit of back-door manipulation, Monsanto can write it’s own ticket with the U.S. Federal Government’s stamp of approval. If the rules get in the way, then change the rules, or at least their interpretation, to fit the situation.

Monsanto is now ready to grow soybeans that are genetically modified to produce omega-3 fatty acids. The fact that the company is doing this comes as no surprise, but the important thing to note is the process that the FDA goes through to approve these types of substances as Generally Recognized as Safe, or GRAS, is to simply rubber-stamp the Monsanto application, no questions asked.'
The biotechnology firm Monsanto stands just one FDA approval away from growing soybeans that have been genetically modified to produce those omega-3 fatty acids that doctors are always recommending. (Forbes)

Top 10 Food Additives to Avoid

 http://nosweatkitchen.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/food-additives.png



'Food additives are purposely added to food to change its color, preserve it, prevent rancidity, keep fats emulsified, and foods stable. Most of the chemicals are synthetic compounds, some with known negative health effects. But more importantly, we don’t really know what the long-term consequences of consuming such large amounts of additives are. 
 
A typical American household spends about 90 percent of their food budget on processed foods, and are in doing so exposed to a plethora of artificial food additives, many of which can cause dire consequences to your health. 

Some food additives are far worse than others. Here’s a list of the top 10 food additives you need to avoid:'

Is There a Financial Scam Behind the Rise in Oil and Food Prices?




'When I met Phil the other night, he was on fire, enraged by what he believes is the scam of the century that no one wants to talk about, because so many powerful people armed with legions of lawyers want unquestioning allegiance, and will sue you into silence. 

He studies the oil/food issue carefully and has concluded, “It’s a scam folks, it’s nothing but a huge scam and it’s destroying the US economy as well as the entire global economy but no one complains because they are ‘only’ stealing about $1.50 per gallon from each individual person in the industrialized world.” 

“It’s the top 0.01% robbing the next 39.99% – the bottom 60% can’t afford cars anyway (they just starve quietly to death, as food prices climb on fuel costs). If someone breaks into your car and steals a $500 stereo, you go to the police, but if someone charges you an extra $30 every time you fill up your tank 50 times a year ($1,500) you shut up and pay your bill. Great system, right?”'

New Documentary Investigates War Being Waged by Biotechnology Companies Against Scientists who Expose the Truth About GMOs





'In order to maintain its massive charade of deception in claiming that genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are the safe, practical solution to the world's food problems, the biotechnology industry has had to silence and destroy the lives of many in the scientific community.

In the hard-hitting new documentary Scientists Under Attack - Genetic Engineering in the Magnetic Field of Money, German filmmaker Bertram Verhaag explores the heavy hand of the biotechnology industry in steering "science" towards its own interests, and eliminating the actual, legitimate science that exposes genetic engineering (GE) as the fraud that it is.'

Iodine and Radiation Insanity




by Dr. Mark Sircus

'The news is so bad this Sunday morning that I don’t know what to do or write. I could try screaming but I am not the type… or crying, well that comes almost too easily. Perhaps I am crazy. After all, Ann Coulter got on TV and actually said, “The only good news is that anyone exposed to excess radiation from the nuclear power plants is now probably much less likely to get cancer.” And Dr. Josef Oehmen, a research scientist at MIT, said,I repeat, there was and will *not* be any significant release of radioactivity from the damaged Japanese reactors.”

I wrote some pretty crass words the other day to begin an essay:

Avoiding exposure and radiation-induced diseases might come down to, I am terribly sorry to say, running for our lives. Anyone who cannot accept this is the reality millions of Japanese face is probably not worth saving so let them consume all the milk and unwashed leafy vegetables they can.

I got two probably well-deserved complaints about it. I allowed myself the expression as my first lines in a terrible document about the worsening situation in Japan and I could feel my anger building about the insensitivity of our world civilization and its institutions.'

Kristen LaBrie is brought into the courtroom before being sentenced to eight to 10 years in prison at Lawrence Superior Court in Lawrence, Mass., Friday, April 15, 2011. LaBrie was convicted of attempted murder for withholding cancer medications from her autistic son.

(NaturalNews) 'The US justice system has turned over a new leaf in judicial insanity with the recent murder conviction of Kristen LaBrie, a 38-year-old woman whose autistic son died of cancer in 2009. According to Essex District Attorney's Office in Massachusetts, LaBrie was found guilty on all charges made against her, including attempted murder, permitting serious bodily injury to a disabled person, permitting substantial injury to a child, and reckless endangerment of a child -- all for making the personal medical choice to stop administering deadly chemotherapy drugs to her son (http://www.naturalnews.com/031989_c...).'

Progressives And Religious Faith In Vaccines

 
 
'Ralph Nader was once a hero for exposing and going after Ford for their Pinto which could burst into flames and was killing people.  His effort enshrined in progressives the idea that government should enforce safety safety standards on corporate products because corporations will do all they can to slip by with unsafe products if it saves them money.
 
So why have progressives and liberals gone along with corporate media demonization (by Bill Gates most recently) of the efforts of parents to expose dangers of vaccines which, just as with the Pinto, are killing people, and often small children?  And where is Nader now?
 
Vaccines, like the Pinto, are a corporate product that kills.  They have not only not been taken off the market but they are mandated to infants, children, young adults and increasing so to healthcare workers, and the list of mandated vaccines and the list of groups forced to take them, is growing.  Where is Nader as vaccines manufacturers have gotten fundamental vaccine safeguards removed, have gotten the FDA to argue in court that the public has no fundamental right to its bodily and physical health, and have just been given complete immunity from liability by the Supreme Court?'

Living with chronic illness: the power of acceptance


nerd



'The vast majority of the articles I’ve written are about how to heal and prevent disease. Of course that’s important, and what most of us are after. However, the reality of life is that sometimes, despite our best efforts, we can’t avoid illness or disease. And as I pointed out in a recent article, The Biggest Obstacle to Perfect Health is Your Mind, if there’s one thing we can be sure of it’s that we’re all dying from the moment we’re born. Morbid, perhaps. But it’s the truth.'

Why 'Self-Sufficiency' Should Replace 'Sustainability' in the Environmental Movement



'The environmental movement is in love with the word 'sustainable'. Admittedly, it's a wonderful word in the purest sense, meaning; 1. capable of being sustained, 2. capable of being continued with minimal long-term effect on the environment. Who doesn't want those capabilities? Yet, 'sustainability', like everything else good and pure, has seemingly been hijacked by the ruling oligarchs as a way to impose more top-down control of society. Passionate environmentalists are beginning to realize that the only way to affect real change is by becoming sustainable individuals through self-sufficiency. 

This focus on individual empowerment will naturally lead to increased liberty, as it minimizes the tactics used by mega-cartels and government to control our core needs of food, electricity, or medicine. Living in an environmentally and socially sustainable world should be an obvious goal, but it won't work if imposed at the barrel of a gun.'

Arnie Gundersen Speaks With Russia Today About the Increased Severity Rating at Fukushima from Fairewinds Associates on Vimeo.


by Dr. Mark Sircus

'In today’s post I will begin to answer what Arnie Gundersen is not quite ready to say but will say next week when he has more data. And that is to answer the question of what to do for oneself and one’s family during this nuclear crisis that the world’s governments don’t want you to know. They are, in reality controlled by one-world institutions like the UN, the World Health Organization and others, and that is why we see a lockstep response heard around the world that says—don’t worry!

Life goes on as before and if you want evidence for that just look at your newspaper, Yahoo news summaries or your television to see. But sorry, that is not the truth—not true at all as a tragedy on a civilization-size scale silently falls down on us in the form of nuclear mists of fine very dangerous particles. Most are ignoring this while believing the propaganda of deception that still sounds the loud bells about nuclear safety.'

US and Russia Fighting Destruction of Smallpox Virus Samples

'Why would anyone want to retain samples of a virus, long since eradicated from the earth, and use those samples to mutate and experiment with? For what purpose?  What are they planning as the end use? And whom would they be thinking about using it on?

Turns out the US and Russia are fighting every attempt to force final destruction of the smallpox virus samples and have been fighting the destruction of these samples of smallpox for years.


The
last case of smallpox ever recorded was in 1978 and the result of a laboratory accident.  The only places smallpox exists today is in the bioweapons research centers in the US and Russia.'

High blood pressure? Maybe not

 http://highbloodpressureheadache.com/images/blood_pressure.JPG



by Dr. Kenneth Woliner

'High blood pressure is a serious problem. It raises your risk for heart trouble… and it can raise your insurance rates, too. Once you’ve been labeled with this problem, it stays on your medical records for good. And it can haunt you like the infamous “Scarlet Letter.”
That’s why it’s so important to get an accurate blood pressure reading – and a true one. But a common problem has left untold thousands – possibly millions – thinking they have high blood pressure when they actually don’t. 

The problem is called “white coat syndrome.” '

'Far off the coast of Panama, on a remote island, there lives a native tribe called the Kuna, who maintain remarkably good health.

Despite their daily indulgence in decadent treats, they have six times less incidence of heart attack, 17 times less incidence of stroke, and 18 times less incidence of cancer than their mainland contemporaries.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, Kunas that are retirement-age and older have blood pressure rates that rival those of any healthy 20-year old.

So what’s their secret?  Well, it isn’t good genes.  It’s something delicious and nutritious.
The Food of the Gods…

The Kunas’ secret is chocolate.'
