Polyphenols for Life, Health, and Longevity

Photo Credit:Health Renegade

'I grew up in rural New England. When the nights chilled in the fall, maple leaves turned golden and the oaks a deep red. Hot Indian summer days with cold nights were perfect for berry picking. Every weekend during berry season, my mother packed the family station wagon with snacks and drove to her favorite wild blueberry spot. When the first frost turned cranberries crimson, we gathered these low-lying berries too. And it wasn’t just berries—we also gathered wild hazelnuts and black walnuts.

I didn’t know it then, but these winter treats were packed with polyphenols.' 


Should You Trust 'The Daily Beast' About Vaccines? DISINFORMATION ALERT!


'The Daily Beast, an American website claiming to provide "breaking news and sharp commentary," recently published an article titled, "Thanks, Anti-Vaxxers. You Just Brought Back Measles in NYC," providing not a shred of evidence to substantiate its vociferous claims.

In fact, The Daily Beast does not even reveal who wrote the article, publishing the diatribe under a pseudonym ('Russell Saunders'), presumably a New England pediatrician, effectively cloaking their author from accountability for his dauntless indictments.

The article opens, "Measles was considered eliminated at the turn of the millennium. Now it's back, thanks to the loons to refuse to vaccinate their children."'

'Whether it's in an herbal preparation or your favorite dish, horseradish (Cochlearia armoracia) is a natural antibiotic which clears sinuses, increases facial circulation, and promotes expulsion of mucus from upper respiratory passages. It has been used as a medicine for millennia.' 


Are Antibiotics Making Americans Fat?

'Public health researchers have long maintained that the primary cause of America’s obesity epidemic is the combination of our increasingly high-calorie diet (hello, Cheesecake Factory’s Oreo Dream Extreme Cheesecake) and an increasingly inactive lifestyle (there you are, couch). And most experts still maintain that. Yet a number of scientists believe there’s something else—or, really, a number of something elses—bringing its weight to bear.

In other words, if the recent research reported by Kennedy points to routine antibiotic use as a smoking gun, it is likely just one in the fusillade of causes behind America’s seemingly ever-expanding waistline.'


There Is No Such Thing As a Safe Dose of Poison - Here's How Chemicals Are Invading Every Major System In The Body

'Ask any scientist in the field of health and safety and they will tell you that toxicity is all about the dose. Not really. While you can die from anything taken in excess, even water, you can also run into serious fatal complications from any poison at any dose if you take it long enough. 

There is no safe dose of a poison because the body recognizes even the smallest dose and immediately creates inflammatory cascades and immune responses to combat these foreign entities. Toxic chemicals are now invading every facet of our lives from our schools to our workplaces.' 


Amazing herbal cures from around the world

'So we start this whole thing off with cancer, since that's the biggest "mystery" on Earth. Cancer, the eighth wonder of the world, or is it the ninth? Cancer -- that "disease" (actually it's a disorder) of the cells where certain dying or "chemicalized" cells mutate and multiply uncontrollably, then attack your good cells. Scientists all over the world cannot figure out a vaccine or medicine to cure this problem. Or can they?'


Astonishing Advice from One of the “World’s Leading Cancer Doctors”


'Fox News recently featured mainstream doctor Dr. David Agus, who is touted as one of the world’s leading cancer doctors. He came on to discuss a recent study about mammograms and breast cancer as well as his book A Short Guide to A Long Life. Though the recent study indicated that mammograms every two years were as effective as annual mammograms, Dr. Agus said that the “jury is still out” and advised those who were getting annual mammograms to continue to do so. What he didn’t mention is that mammograms cause cancer.'


Mass Obesity No Cause for Celebration


'America is as obese as it possibly can be, yet the government and media refuse to take responsibility for this tragic problem.  Although obesity rates among American preschoolers declined by 43 percent in the past decade, teenage and adult obesity are deplorable and show no signs of improvement.

These findings were broadcast on all of the nation's major news stations and in most major newspapers with many claiming "victory" in the fight against childhood obesity. While this all sounds like good news, I disagree with such proclamations.

The study, published in JAMA,found that obesity rates among two- to five-year olds dropped from 14 percent in 2003 to eight percent in 2012. The researchers suggest that decreased consumption of high-calorie drinks and higher rates of breast feeding might account for the decline.'


Fluoride in Water Has Now Been Designated as a Neurotoxin

'The fluoridation of water supplies began more than 60 years ago, and helped usher in the beginning of the “better living through chemistry” era in which we have found ourselves. 

Another benchmark of this era is the meteoric rise in neuro-developmental disabilities such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bi-polar disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments that have afflicted millions of children worldwide with increasing frequency. Now scientists have documented the connection between these two events, in a study published this month in the journal Lancet Neurology.'


Will healthy food crops go extinct?

ED NOTE: This is why focusing on GMO labeling will give Monsanto and their ilk more time to ruin what's left of good plant foods. It's a food supply survival issue that demands BANNING GMOs, their seeds, and the pesticides involved. There can be NO coexistence of non-GMO, organic, and GMO crops.

'A new US survey highlights the ominous “gene drift” problem, the contamination of organic food crops by GMOs from other farms.

This is not a new situation. It has been present since the introduction of commercial GMO crops in 1996.

The survey was conducted by two groups: Food and Water Watch, and Organic Farmers’ Agency for Relationship Marketing (on Facebook). Questionnaires were sent out to 1500 organic grain farmers. From the 268 responses, a key factor emerged:'

'Today, I am grateful to have a better understanding of the relationship between cholesterol and health. How about you? Are you afraid of having high cholesterol? Are you throwing away egg yolks because you think they're bad for your health? Are you taking cholesterol-lowering medication or considering starting on one?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I encourage you to consider the work of Uffe Ravnskov, MD, PhD, author of The Cholesterol Myths : Exposing the Fallacy that Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Cause Heart Disease. I consider Dr. Ravnskov to be the world's leading expert on the relationship between cholesterol and human health.'


Sacred Frankincense and Cancer


Softball sized tumor gone in 2 months

5000 IU of Vitamin D3 Boosts The Body's Ability To Respond To Cardiovascular Stress and Cancer


'Daily supplements of vitamin D3 improve the heart's response to a stressor and double the chances of surviving cancer according to two separate studies in Anticancer Research and the International Journal of Cardiology.

A daily vitamin D dose of 5,000 IU for 28 days is associated with maintenance of the so-called sympatho-vagal balance, or the interaction between the sympathetic nervous system and the vagus nerve, according to findings published in the International Journal of Cardiology.'

Sodium Bicarbonate Can Heal Cancer
'Sodium bicarbonate is probably one of the most useful substances in the world; no wonder the pharmaceutical companies don’t want doctors or anyone else to know much about it. It is essential when treating cancer, kidney and other diseases.

We do not have to fear bicarbonate intake. And in fact, people who live in areas of the world with high amounts of bicarbonate in their drinking waters have a striking decreased mortality rate and a decreased prevalence of disease. 

Sodium bicarbonate, though often used as a medicine, is unlike pharmaceutical compounds. It is a natural non-toxic substance that does not require clinical trials for an assessment of toxicity. Spring waters contain bicarbonate ions which are coupled mainly with sodium, potassium, calcium or magnesium ions.'

'Groundbreaking new research on the cancer-fighting potential of vitamin C has made the pages of the peer-reviewed journal Science Translational Medicine. A team of researchers from the University of Kansas reportedly tested the effects of vitamin C given in high doses intravenously on a group of human subjects and found that it effectively eradicates cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.'


What Is Your Body Trying To Tell You? 9 Symptoms You Shouldn't Ignore


'The body is a magnificent machine. When things go awry, it generally doesn’t just shut down without warning, like an incandescent light bulb popping its filament. Instead it sends us little signals (think of them as gentle biological taps on the shoulder) letting us know that something is amiss.
“Physical signs and symptoms are ways your body tries to alert you to deeper imbalances,” says Elson M. Haas, MD, a San Rafael, Calif., physician with a natural-medicine approach and author of Staying Healthy with Nutrition (Celestial Arts, 2006). “Taking the time to decipher the body’s codes is always better than simply popping a pill and hoping the symptoms just go away.' 


The Natural Effect


What Most People Don't Know About The Father of Vaccination and Why History is Repeating Itself

For centuries, medical practitioners we have tried to find ways of inducing immunity in order to escape the consequences of disease, but vaccination itself is relatively new and a mere blip on our historical timeline. It embraces a noble intention, which is why so many are easily deceived regarding its true effectiveness. Dr. Edward Jenner is considered the "father of vaccination", variolation or inoculation. He was the pioneer of the first smallpox vaccine and he was also the first to formulate a vaccine for approved experimentation which began with his 10-month old son.

Natural Herbal HPV "Cure" Discovered


'Despite the widespread belief that HPV infection is a lethal force against which we only have vaccination and watchful waiting to defend ourselves, both ancient herbal medicine and our body's inherent immune defenses have newly been confirmed to have significant power against it.

A groundbreaking study published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention, titled, "Clearance of Cervical Human Papillomavirus Infection by Topical Application of Curcumin and Curcumin Containing Polyherbal Cream: A Phase II Randomized Controlled Study," reveals that vaccination and watchful waiting are not the only recourse against HPV infection.' 


All You Need to Know About Your Health—from One Drop

Blood Test

'Forget the needles—you can learn all you need to know about your health with a single drop of blood.

No one thinks that lab testing is a positive experience. Yet it should be, according to Elizabeth Holmes in a recent Wired interview.

Elizabeth, founder of Theranos, invented a disruptive technology for medical lab testing that will reshape the way you get your blood tested. No more painful needles. No more tubes filled with blood.

Small Sample, Big Technology

Even a single drop of blood reveals a lot about your health. New technology makes it easier to follow selected disease biomarkers as well as track wellness progress. With convenient locations—like Walgreen’s pharmacies, as well as your doctor’s office—you could stop by for a few minutes and within a few days, or less, find out if your dietary changes have really lowered your cholesterol, or if your hemoglobin A1c is heading in the right direction.' 


The Fat Question: Why fat doesn’t make you fat

'There’s a big ol’ myth out there that stubbornly refuses to die. It goes something like this: eating fat makes you fat.

From a basic caloric standpoint, this appears to make sense. Fat contains 9 calories per gram, whereas carbohydrates and proteins contain 4 calories per gram. If calories were the only thing to consider, it would stand to reason that if you eat fat, you’re going to gain weight because of the higher caloric load.

Well, first off – let’s clear up the calorie myth. If you haven’t done so already, please read last week’s post on why calorie counting is such a small part of the health and weight puzzle.

So let’s look at exactly what your body is DOING with fat. Is it just about energy storage in the form of chunky thighs and a big belly?'


The Benefits of Medical Cannabis

'Marijuana has been legalized in a number of US states; 20 states have legalized cannabis for medical purposes; two states—Colorado and Washington state—also permit recreational use. Certain forms of cannabis are actually very potent medicine, with few or no psychoactive effects.

In California, medical marijuana has been legal for 18 years. Dr. Allan Frankel, a board-certified internist in California, has treated patients with medical cannabis for the past seven years.

By and large, cannabis is highly favored by people across the US. According to Dr. Frankel, 85-95 percent of Americans are in favor of medical cannabis, and 58-59 percent are in favor of legalizing marijuana.

The federal government, meanwhile, wants to get rid of all medical use of marijuana, which of course begs the question: Why? According to Dr. Frankel, the answer is simple. "They want it. This is a huge market," he says.'

 And yes, medical cannabis is clearly competition to the pharmaceutical industry, as the cannabis plant can take the place of a wide variety of synthetic drugs, especially for mood and anxiety disorders. The last thing they want is a therapy that's going to take away from their bottom line.'


Medicinal ginger for health and garden

'One of the world’s most potent disease-fighting spices, ginger, is easy to grow and comes in a variety of over a thousand different species. Medicinal ginger most often used is Zingiber officinale.
The Real Food Channel reminds us, “Pharmaceutical companies would have you believe that their expensive and potentially toxic medications are the way to treat nausea, cold and flu symptoms, migraines, and other illnesses.” But, Ken McCarthy asks, “What if a common food, easily available and inexpensive, could treat all of these conditions and more?”


How Do These People Sleep? She Was 4 and She’s Dead by Psychiatry


'John McCarthy speaks passionately about prescription of more... psychiatric drugs to children. Rebecca Riley was four years old—”four and bold”—given four drugs at once, and she died from the cure. Her psychiatrists are still in practice.

Take just 5 minutes to listen to this incredibly moving piece, when McCarthy spoke at Health Actions International’s conference, Mad Medicine: Do conflicts of interest drive you crazy?, last September, when he asks how those who do this can sleep at night:'


Bad News for Paleos: Study Finds High-Protein Diets Are as Risky as Smoking

'Hard-core adherents of the faddish Paleo diet like to crow that       eating like our ├╝ber-great ancestors is a way to beat the scourge  of  so-called “modern” diseases like cancer. So what to make of a         recent study published in the journal Cell Metabolism that found      people who eat lots of protein in middle age were more likely to      die of cancer than those who eat less? How much more likely?        Four times. That puts the increased cancer risk on par with          smoking.'


5 Food-Medicines That Could Quite Possibly Save Your Life


'Some of the most powerful medicines on the planet are masquerading around as foods and spices. While they do not lend themselves to being patented, nor will multi-billion dollar human clinical trials ever be funded to prove them efficacious, they have been used since time immemorial to both nourish our bodies, and to prevent and treat disease. So valued were these in ancient times that they were worth their weight in gold, and entire civilizations either rose to great power or collapsed as a result of their relationship to them.'

Four Steps Required to Keep Monsanto Out of Your Garden

'What most of these home gardeners don’t realize is that corporate behemoth and GMO titan Monsanto has been gobbling up the seed market faster than a caterpillar can munch a tomato plant! With one fell swoop in 2005, Monsanto grabbed approximately 40% of the US vegetable seed market with its acquisition of Seminis.

This means that a home gardener could unknowingly be supporting the development and proliferation of genetically modified crops if the seeds used are from Seminis.  In addition, Monsanto now apparently owns the trademark for many of the names of the heirloom seed varieties themselves!'
