The Vaccine Hoax is Over. Documents from UK reveal 30 Years of Coverup
Oct 23, 2013
Tsvetan Petrov, Overall Health
Andrew Baker ( FFN) – Freedom of Information Act in the UK filed by a doctor there has revealed 30 years of secret official documents showing that government experts have
1. Known the vaccines don’t work
2. Known they cause the diseases they are supposed to prevent
3. Known they are a hazard to children
4. Colluded to lie to the public
5. Worked to prevent safety studies
Those are the same vaccines that are mandated to children in the US.
Educated parents can either get their children out of harm’s way or continue living inside one of the largest most evil lies in history, that vaccines – full of heavy metals, viral diseases, mycoplasma, fecal material, DNA fragments from other species, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 (a sterilizing agent) – are a miracle of modern medicine.
Freedom of Information Act filed in the US with the CDC by a doctor with an autistic son, seeking information on what the CDC knows about the dangers of vaccines, had by law to be responded to in 20 days. Nearly 7 years later, the doctor went to court and the CDC argued it does not have to turn over documents. A judge ordered the CDC to turn over the documents on September 30th, 2011.
On October 26, 2011, a Denver Post editorial expressed shock that the Obama administration, after promising to be especially transparent, was proposing changes to the Freedom of Information Act that would allow it to go beyond declaring some documents secret and to actually allow government agencies (such as the CDC) to declare some document “non-existent.”
Simultaneous to this on-going massive CDC cover up involving its primary “health” not recommendation but MANDATE for American children, the CDC is in deep trouble over its decades of covering up the damaging effects of fluoride and affecting the lives of all Americans, especially children and the immune compromised. Lawsuits are being prepared. Children are ingesting 3-4 times more fluoride by body weight as adults and “[t]he sheer number of potentially harmed citizens – persons with dental fluorosis, kidney patients tipped into needing dialysis, diabetics, thyroid patients, etc – numbers in the millions.”
The CDC is obviously acting against the health of the American people. But the threat to the lives of the American people posed by the CDC’s behavior does not stop there. It participated in designed pandemic laws that are on the books in every state in the US, which arrange for the government to use military to force unknown, untested vaccines, drugs, chemicals, and “medical” treatments on the entire country if it declares a pandemic emergency.
The CDC’s credibility in declaring such a pandemic emergency is non-existent, again based on Freedom of Information Act. For in 2009, after the CDC had declared the H1N1 “pandemic,” the CDC refused to respond to Freedom of Information Act filed by CBS News and the CDC also attempted to block their investigation. What the CDC was hiding was its part in one of the largest medical scandals in history, putting out wildly exaggerated data on what it claimed were H1N1 cases, and by doing so, created the false impression of a “pandemic” in the US.
The CDC was also covering up a financial scandal to rival the bailout since the vaccines for the false pandemic cost the US billions. And worse, the CDC put pregnant women first in line for an untested vaccine with a sterilizing agent, polysorbate 80, in it. Thanks to the CDC, “the number of vaccine-related “fetal demise” reports increased by 2,440 percent in 2009 compared to previous years, which is even more shocking than the miscarriage statistic [700% increase].
The exposure of the vaccine hoax is running neck and neck with the much older hoax of a deadly 1918-19 flu. It was aspirin that killed people in 1918-19, not a pandemic flu. It was the greatest industrial catastrophe in human history with 20-50 million people dying but it was blamed on a flu. The beginning of the drug industry began with that success (and Monsanto was part of it). The flu myth was used by George Bush to threaten the world with “another pandemic flu that could kill millions” – a terror tactic to get pandemic laws on the books in every state and worldwide. Then the CDC used hoax of the pandemic hoax to create terror over H1N1 and to push deadly vaccines on the public, killing thousands of unborn children and others. (CDC will not release the data and continues to push the same vaccine.)
United States Food and Drug Administration moves to Ban Trans Fats, citing Health Risks
Updated Fri 8 Nov 2013
United States regulators are proposing a ban of artificial trans fats in processed food like margarine, frozen pizza and microwave popcorn.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says the ban will require packaged-food makers to choose safer, mono or polyunsaturated fats, and the subsequent reduction of trans fat consumption could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths from heart disease per year.
Partially hydrogenated oils, which are the primary dietary source of the fats, have been shown to raise “bad” cholesterol. “While consumption of potentially harmful artificial trans fat has declined over the last two decades in the United States, current intake remains a significant public health concern,” FDA commissioner Simone Hamburg said.
Public health advocates are welcoming the move, with executive director of the Centre for Science in the Public Interest Michael Jacobson saying, “artificial trans fat is a uniquely powerful promoter of heart disease, and today’s announcement will hasten its eventual disappearance from the food supply”.
Proposal reflects voluntary reduction in trans fat use
The FDA’s proposal is not the first public effort to ban trans fats, with New York City banning its use in restaurants. Many other restaurants and fast food chains in the United States, including McDonald’s, have already eliminated them.
Elsewhere in the United States where labelling of trans fats has been made mandatory, there has been a huge reduction of fat in the food supply because manufacturers are reluctant to admit it on their label. According to the Grocery Manufacturers Association food manufacturers have voluntarily lowered the amounts of trans fats in their food products by more than 73 per cent.
However, the Ms Hamburg admits some products will be harder to reformulate without trans fats as ingredients, and that “we know that technically this is not an insoluble problem”.
The ban will not take effect right away, with a 60-day comment period due to take place before the regulation comes into force in order to allow food companies to outline how long they expect it to take them to reformulate products.
If the proposal becomes final, partially hydrogenated oils will be considered food additives and will not be allowed in food unless authorized by health regulators. The ruling will not affect naturally occurring trans fat that occurs in small amounts in certain meat and dairy products.
Two years ago an Australian Government-funded panel recommended that trans fatty acids should be phased out of the country’s food supply by 2013.
But as the ABC reported in January, the recommendations were not met, and neither were those calling for the labelling of products containing high amounts of the dangerous fat.
Turmeric: The Return of the Golden Goddess
Ancient Indians understood turmeric to be the physical essence of the Divine Mother. Modern science now confirms that it has therapeutic properties relevant to well over 500 health conditions, and may bestow on those who take it, protection from many common causes of suffering.
The author has personally reviewed the majority of 4,000+ biomedical citations on turmeric and its primary polyphenol curcumin, available to view on the National Library of Medicine’s bibliographic reference database known as MEDLINE (and searchable through engines like Pubmed.gov), and has been awed by how diverse, powerful and seemingly ideally suited this spice is for addressing the broad range of diseases and/or disease symptoms that commonly afflict our species.
One of the novel findings that emerged in the author’s comprehensive review of turmeric is that it expresses over 150 distinct beneficial actions, describable in terms of traditional pharmacological pathways, e.g. interleukin-6 down-regulator, apoptotic, cyclooxygenase inhibitor, etc. During the indexing process the image emerged of a many-armed Goddess, due to how diverse, intelligent and simultaneous are this spice’s healing gifts.
In fact, from the perspective of monochemical-oriented pharmacology, a drug with more than 10 simultaneously therapeutic actions, and without the vast array of adverse, unintended side effects commonly associated with novel, patentable chemicals, turmeric would represent an impossible, miraculous entity, which if patentable, would generate more revenue than all the blockbuster drugs on the market put together.
After some reflection on the mass of data that accumulated on turmeric’s ability to alleviate suffering, the question emerged: are these many “evidence-based,” scientific studies really just exoteric descriptions of “compassion” and “intelligence”?
Are we now rediscovering through the optic of modern science – albeit through the reductionist and inherently animal sacrifice-based methodology of empirical science – the “spirit” of herbs like turmeric, whose very existence represent a kind of surplus of benevolent, regenerative energy that permeates the universe, bestowing its grace upon its inhabitants/creations? Is this not what the ancients meant, or saw, when they described the spice in Sanskrit as “Gauri” (“The One Whose Face is Light and Shining”) and “Kanchani” (“Golden Goddess”)?
ISRAELI SUPREME COURT BACKS WORK OF IRISH SCIENTIST ON FLUORIDE
Fluoridation of the water supply in Israel is to end by 2014, following a landmark decision by the country’s highest judicial authority
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 6 Aug 2013
In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court in Israel has ruled that all public water fluoridation in the state of Israel must cease by 2014.
The court’s ruling is remarkable in that it goes even further than – and thus overturns – the decision taken earlier this year by Isreal’s Minister for Health, Yael German, who had legislated for an end to mandatory fluoridation, leaving the option open to local councils to fluoridate water supplies at their own discretion. Now, however, by order of the Supreme Court, fluoridation in Israel is definitively at an end. This is regarded as a crucial victory by anti-fluoridation campaigners, especially given the close diplomatic and economic links between Israel and the US – the original home of the policy of fluoridation.
The decision is a further vindication of the work of Irish scientist Declan Waugh, who has been directly involved in the campaign to end fluoridation in Israel.
Waugh had alerted the Israeli Minister for Health to the risks associated with fluoride, outlining how within less than a decade of commencement of water fluoridation, inflammatory respiratory diseases such as asthma had increased by 100% in young adults in Israel.
Since commencement of water fluoridation in Ireland in the late 1960s, the prevalence of asthma has increased by 500% – it now affects approximately half a million people and one in five children 12 years of age in this country. Ireland now has one of the highest prevalences of asthma in the world, levels that are only to be found in fluoridated countries.
“Scientific studies have clearly demonstrated that Fluoride is a pro-inflammatory agent that can contribute to all inflammatory diseases, not just asthma,” Waugh told Hot Press.
The decision will put further pressure on the Irish government to finally properly address the serious health issues surrounding the mandatory fluoridation of the water supply. Ireland is the only country in Europe which enforces a policy of mandatory fluoridation of the national water supply.
Throughout 2013, Hot Press has been carrying a series of investigative articles into the practice, written by Adrienne Murphy, and in our current issue we have posed 27 Questions of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland on the issue. In a related article in the current issue, Hot Press has also highlighted huge – and on the face of it inexplicable – differences between the data on fluoride in tea (among other foodstuffs) provided by the FSAI and that which is available in numerous international studies.
As part of the same investigation, a group of British scientists who carried out independent tests on tea and found the fluoride content to be higher than the FSAI’s figure by a multiple of ten, have called on the Irish government to carry out an urgent review of its policy of mandatory fluoridation.
Over the past year, Declan Waugh has also assisted communities in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and in parts of the USA in ending decades of fluoridation, as well as – in particular cases – preventing fluoridation programmes from commencing.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/08/06/jenny-mccarthy-vaccine-talk.aspx?e_cid=20130806_DNL_art_1&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20130806Now that it looks like ABC-TV executives are backing Barbara Walters’ hire of celebrity Jenny McCarthy to join the popular daytime talk show “The View”, 1 the blood that spilled on the ground of the Fourth Estate during 10 hot days in July is beginning to dry.It was fascinating to watch the well-orchestrated response by online mainstream media, which took on the frenzy of an old fashioned witch hunt to burn a heretic at the stake.Reviewing 29 articles published in major print and broadcast media outlets between July 9 and July 18, 20132 with 19 of them written by males, it became obvious that some of them are really upset about “blonde” girls expressing politically incorrect opinions about vaccine side effects, a topic that has become the biggest taboo talk in America.Several media outlets used her gender to take the first punch with headlines such as “Putting Jenny McCarthy on the View: Good Sex Over Bad Science”3 and ” ‘View’ Host Jenny McCarthy’s Vaccine-Autism Claims: Beauty vs. Science.”4′The Pretty Idiot’ is a Threat to the Survival of Mankind?
Some tried to bash McCarthy’s brain by focusing on her body. Cat calls like “buxom physique,” “blonde bombshell,” “sex symbol,” “object of teenage boys’ fantasies,” “bleached blonde hair,” “pulchritudinous,” ” the pretty idiot,” “Playboy Playmate of the Year”, and so on were effortlessly tossed into the story. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9Once the boys’ club firmly established that she is really only good for one thing, they moved on to alleging that if she is allowed to open her mouth and talk on “The View,” she will in fact and without question threaten the very survival of the human race. One of them took bizarre name-calling to new heights by hurling the epithet “homicidal maniac” at her.10I am not sure how presumably well-educated men expected people to swallow the vacuous argument that the woman is both a dumb blonde and a threat to mankind, but for some inexplicable reason that is exactly what they tried to do.And, further embarrassing themselves, they desperately tried to persuade all the rest of us to be as emotionally invested in her hire on “The View” as they are and immediately write to the bosses at ABC to express our shock and horror.11, 12A Call to Muzzle Vaccine Talking Moms
It could have been amusing summer entertainment watching guys fall all over themselves to one up each other with hysterical hyperbole, but it quickly became obvious that it was about much more than slapping around a celebrity Mom because she has talked publicly about her son’s vaccine reaction and how she helped him get better. 13Way more.
And, although males outnumbered females in suggesting that mothers should not be allowed to talk about vaccines in public unless the script is pre-approved by a politically correct M.D. or Ph.D., a few of the female writers going after McCarthy and ABC were just as adamant about the urgent need to muzzle vaccine talking Moms challenging the status quo.14, 15, 16Four of the 29 headlines featured the word “dangerous.” 17, 18, 19 One apocalyptic headline screamed “Dear ABC: Putting Jenny McCarthy on ‘The View’ Will Kill Children” 20 while an article written by a female pediatrician used the same threatening approach: “ABC’s Hiring of Jenny McCarthy: A Decision That Could Cost Lives.” 21
The collective howl of indignation escalated when Barbara Walters and ABC did not flinch. Using poison pens and heavyweight media platforms, the writers ridiculed the intelligence, values and beliefs of mothers like McCarthy taking matters into their own hands when a healthy child suddenly develops brain and immune system dysfunction after vaccination, a condition doctors can’t explain and often label “autism” but dismiss as “just a coincidence” or bad parental “genes” without looking any further. 22, 23, 24
Century of Medical Literature: Yes, Vaccines CAN Do THAT
Never mind that there is more than a century of medical literature documenting the fact that vaccines can cause:
* Brain inflammation;
* Chronic nervous system dysfunction;
* Vaccine strain viral infection;
* Shock and “unusual shock-like state;”
* Protracted inconsolable crying
The indisputable fact that vaccines can do that has been acknowledged by the Institute of Medicine in a series of peer-reviewed reports published between 1991 and 2013. 25, 26, 27, 28 The last one pointed out that there is not enough scientific evidence to determine if the current recommended schedule of 49 doses of 14 vaccines between day of birth and age six 29 is or is not associated with the development of a whole host of health problems in children – everything from autoimmunity, allergies, asthma, epilepsy, ADHD and learning disabilities to – yes – autism. 30, 31, 32
The indisputable fact that vaccines can hurt people and that doctors still don’t know which individuals are more biologically susceptible to suffering vaccine damage 33 was codified into law by Congress in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986.34 That law has awarded more than $2.7 billion dollars to Americans harmed by vaccines in exchange for shielding drug companies and doctors from vaccine injury lawsuits in civil court.35, 36
With vaccine failures among highly vaccinated children playing a big role in outbreaks of B. pertussis whooping cough,37, 38 the hype about Jenny McCarthy joining “The View” could be just a red herring. But it is going to take a lot of red herrings to distract millions of parents from talking about why 1 child in 6 in America is learning disabled,39 1 in 9 suffers with asthma,40 1 in 50 develops autism 41 or why there has never been a large, well-designed study comparing the health outcomes of highly vaccinated children and those remaining unvaccinated or using fewer vaccines.42
Media: Non-Medical Degrees, PR, Politics, Marketing & Other Expertise
Most of the writers who wrote stories about a vaccine talking celebrity Mom joining “The View,” including those calling for censorship and the gutting of journalistic standards that ensure fair balance – when it comes to writing stories about vaccination 43 – are journalists by profession. 28 of the 29 articles were written by individuals without medical degrees, although one is a pharmacologist, one is an astronomer and one has a PhD in biological sciences.
The majority have degrees in Journalism, English, History or Political Science with some also listing expertise in public relations and communications, marketing and fund raising, political media campaign management, TV and entertainment. 44
Even though these writers do not have medical degrees, the U.S. Constitution guarantees them the liberty to express their views about Jenny McCarthy, Barbara Walters, ABC and vaccines, just as the media outlets publishing their opinions are protected by the First Amendment. That legal right to engage in critical thinking and to hold personal beliefs and to exercise free speech, belongs to every American – not just to those articulating talking points made or approved by citizens with M.D. or Ph.D. written after their names.
Public Talking About Vaccine Safety Since 1982
Parents, doctors, legislators and journalists started talking publicly about vaccine safety issues in America in 1982,45 16 years before a paper about MMR vaccine and autism was published in The Lancet. Mothers were talking about what happens to their children’s health after vaccination long before the Library of Medicine was posted online and the world wide web became the biggest talk show on the planet.
Vaccine talk will continue in the kitchens and on the smart phones and tablets of critical thinking women, who are using the brains and mother’s instincts they were born with to make informed health care choices for their children. Vaccine talk will continue because, today, many more mothers either have a child or know a child who was healthy, got vaccinated and was never healthy again.
Evangelistic doctors should stop trying so hard to shut down vaccine talking and just do the credible science that will answer the question on everybody’s mind: what exactly is causing the 1 child in 50 $126 billion dollar a year46 public health disaster doctors call autism, but still can’t agree on how to define it or how often it happens. One thing doctors say they know for sure is that vaccines don’t have anything to do with autism because the Earth is not flat, there is nothing more to be learned about vaccine side effects and autism cannot be cured, so parents should just forget about it.
That empty rhetoric is not flying these days with thinking Moms and Dads digging deeper and learning that good health is about more than using lots of vaccines to prevent infections. Become educated about diseases and vaccines. It’s your health. Your family. Your choice.
I didn’t know half this stuff especially about aerosolsgoing through the liver!
Good to know.
Fluoride Action Network
(Libery Beacon) Dr. Maurice Hilleman made astounding revelations in an interview that was cut from The Health Century — the admission that Merck drug company vaccines had been injecting dangerous viruses into people worldwide.
Bear in mind that Dr. Hilleman was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program. He developed over three dozen vaccines, more than any other scientist in history. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society.
He received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. Hilleman was one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.
I think it’s important to remember history when it comes to vaccines, especially in light of current developments.
For starters, the HPV vaccine Gardasil, which is being vigorously pushed on unsuspecting young girls and women to theoretically guard against cervical cancer still has never been proven to actually prevent cancer. On the contrary, evidence suggests that under certain circumstances the vaccine increases your risk of precancerous lesions by nearly 45 percent, and an ever increasing number of girls are being seriously injured by this unnecessary vaccine.
As of December 13, 2010, 20,915 adverse reactions had been reported in the United States alone, including 89 deaths, 297 miscarriages or stillbirths, and 370 reports of abnormal pap smears post vaccination.
All of this from a vaccine that has only been on the market for four years!
Making matters worse, as of 2009 the US FDA approved Gardasil for use on young boys as well, and the first male death has also been reported. In September of last year, a young boy died just eight days after being vaccinated with Gardasil.
So what’s going on here?
Is it possible that vaccines sold by drugmakers like Merck are causing lethal disease? Judging by history, the answer may be yes.
Contaminated Polio Vaccine Responsible for Human Cancer Cases
In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases that were occurring each year.
What was it contaminated with?
SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus. The puzzle began in 1994, when Dr. Michele Carbone, a Loyola University researcher, found the virus SV40, which had never before been detected in humans, in half of the human lung tumors he was studying. Since then, 60 different lab studies have confirmed the results, and SV40 has been found in a variety of human cancers, including lung-, brain-, bone-, and lymphatic cancer.
At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population.
But in the censored interview with Dr. Maurice Hilleman above, Hilleman admits Merck’s responsibility in unleashing this virus via their polio vaccine, as well as the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading the AIDS virus in the same manner.
Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman?
Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines—more than any other scientist in history—and was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program.
He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization.
When he was chief of the Department of Respiratory Diseases with what’s now the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he discovered the genetic changes that occur when the influenzavirus mutates, known as shift and drift. He was also one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.So Dr. Hilleman knew what he was talking about. And in his own words, “vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20thCentury.”
Vaccines Can Cause the Very Disease They’re Meant to Prevent, and Worse
For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals between 1953 and 1963 and caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999.
Still, the FDA and health authorities turned a blind eye.
In addition, just like Gardasil may well increase your risk of cervical cancer rather than reduce it, the live polio vaccine has also been found to cause polio. And, in rare instances the virus in the vaccine has even been known to mutate into a much deadlier version. As reported by MSN News in 2009, genetic analysis has proven such mutated viruses have caused at least seven separate outbreaks in Nigeria.
According to the CDC the last case of wild polio in the US—meaning polio caused naturally and not due to the live polio vaccine—occurred in 1979. From 1980 through 1999, there were NO wild polio cases in the US. Instead we had 144 cases of vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) caused by live oral polio vaccine.
Polio outbreaks in Haiti and the Dominican Republic in 2002 were also traced back to a strain of oral polio vaccine (OPV) that mutated back to virulence.
According to a report by Neil Z. Miller of the Global Vaccine Institute, the live polio virus from the vaccine can remain in your throat for one to two weeks and in your feces for up to two months. So not only is the vaccine recipient at risk, but he or she can potentially spread the disease to others.
In 1999, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended that the United States replace the live-virus vaccine with an inactivated “killed” virus vaccine, which is what remains in use today. However, the inactivated polio virus vaccine has not been without its share of serious side effects either.

Natural Compound in Broccoli, Cruciferous Vegetables can treat Leukemia
Some foods contain precious anti-cancer molecules. These include:-
Rich in polyphenols that reduce the growth of the new blood vessels needed for tumor growth, green tea is also a powerful antioxidant and activates mechanisms in the liver which help to eliminate cancerous toxins from the body more rapidly. In mice it has been shown to block the effects of chemical carcinogens responsible for breast, lung, oesophageal, stomach and colon cancer.
The most powerful natural anti-inflammatory identified today. In the laboratory it enhances the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduces tumor growth. To be assimilated by the body turmeric needs to be mixed with black pepper and, ideally, it should be dissolved in oil.
GARLIC, ONIONS, LEEKS, SHALLOTS and CHIVES
These all help to regulate blood sugar levels, which in turn reduces insulin secretion and thus the growth of cancer cells. They promote the death of cancer cells in colon, breast, lung and prostate cancer.
Mushrooms stimulate the reproduction of immune cells . Shiitake, crimini, portabello and oyster mushrooms stimulate the reproduction and activity of immune cells. They are often used in Japan as a complement to chemotherapy to support the immune system.
Cabbages, sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower contain powerful anti-cancer molecules. But boiling will destroy them – steam briefly or stir-fry rapidly in a little olive oil.
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES RICH IN CAROTENOIDS
Carrots, yams, sweet potatoes, squash, tomatoes, apricots, beets and all the brightly coloured fruits and vegetables contain vitamin A and lycopene, which have the proven capacity to inhibit the growth of particularly aggressive cancers.
HERBS AND SPICES
Rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil and mint are rich in essential oils of the tarpene family which reduce the spread of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes they need to invade neighbouring tissues.
Oranges, tangerines, lemons and grapefruit contain anti-infammatory flavonoids which are also present in the skin. So buy organic, unwaxed citrus fruit and add the zest to salad dressing or steep the skins in hot water or tea.
Dietary improvements are usually considered mainly as preventative measures against the development of cancer, but many nutrients also improve the survival rates of patients with existing cancer. Existing cancers may stop growing, or grow more slowly, if aggravating dietary and lifestyle factors are removed. It’s never too late to make positive lifestyle changes.
Multiple studies demonstrate that Vitamin A and carotenoids help in the prevention and treatment of many diverse cancers in a variety of ways. These compounds destroy cancer cells, prevent the development and proliferation of tumors, and reverse precancerous lesions. The mechanisms of this anti-cancer activity are due to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of Vitamin A and carotenoids. Also, Vitamin A and carotene boost the effectiveness of radio and chemotherapy while diminishing their side effects.
In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology on September 20, 2005, researchers at the University of California performed a 5 year follow-up of more than 1,550 women previously treated for breast cancer. At the end of the study, they found that women with the highest plasma carotenoid concentration had a 40% reduction in breast cancer recurrence.
Schwartz and Shklar at Harvard School of Dental Medicine studied the cytotoxic effects of different carotenoids, including beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E) on breast, oral, lung and melanoma human tumor cell cultures. Consistent changes in cell shape and/div appearance were seen 1-5 hours after treatment with carotenoid or vitamin E, as were reductions in cell enzyme activity and a decrease in tumor cell proliferation.2
The Santamarias, Golgi Institute, University of Pavia, Italy have reported levels of cancer (skin, breast, gastric, colon) prevention from 60-100% in animals supplemented with carotenoids one months prior to tumor induction (by carcinogenic agents or transplantation). In addition, 15 cancer patients who had surgery to remove primary tumors (lung, breast, colon, bladder, head and neck) and who took supplements of beta-carotene and retinol showed longer recurrence-free intervals than statistically expected.
H. Nagasawa at Maiji University, Japan who previously reported the inhibition of breast cancer in mice by the beta-carotene-rich algae Dunaliella bardawil, now states that D. bardawil inhibits the progression of spontaneous breast tumors by boosting the host animals immune response and by the antioxidant function of beta-carotene.
Since the 1920s, researchers have studied the benefits of carotenoids for cancer prevention and treatment. However, interest in lycopene did not really begin until the late 1980s when it was found to have twice the antioxidant activity of beta carotene. By the late 1990s, over 70 studies had found a link between diets high in tomatoes and a lower risk of cancer.
Lycopene is an open-chain unsaturated carotenoid that imparts red color to tomatoes, guava, rosehip, watermelon and pink grapefruit. Lycopene has been shown to prevent prostate cancer and also to stop it from becoming more advanced. Cooked tomato products such as tomato sauce, juice and ketchup are better sources of lycopene than raw tomatoes, as cooking breaks down plant cell walls making the lycopene more available for absorption. In the body, lycopene is deposited in the liver, lungs, prostate gland, colon and skin. It is best known for its role in preventing prostate cancer, the second leading cause of male cancer deaths in Amerstrongdivdivica. However, consumption of lycopene is also associated with a lower risk of cancer of the breast , cervix , and digestive tract.12
Curative Properties Of Lycopene
Lycopene shows special promise in preventing and treating prostate cancer, . A study at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Ohio State University on prostate cancer in rats found that feeding the animals tomato powder(13 mg lycopene/kg) had the greatest protective effect against prostate cancer, and that supplements of much higher levels of isolated lycopene (161 mg lycopene/kg) were of less benefit, though still better than the control group which received no tomatoes or lycopene. The proportions of rats dying of prostate cancer was 62% in the tomato group, 72% in the lycopene group, and 80% in the control group. Dietary restriction also increased survival.
In another study, thirty-two patients with localized prostate adenocarcinoma consumed tomato sauce-based pasta dishes for 3 weeks (approximately 30 mg of lycopene/day) before their scheduled radical prostatectomy. Prostate tissue was obtained for biopsy before the lycopene supplementation began, and compared to tissue resected at the time of the prostatectomy. Examination of tissue from the resected tumors showed a decrease in tumor biomarkers, increased tumor cell apoptosis (cell death) and decreased DNA damage.14
Dutch researchers found that a low-dose combination of vitamin E and lycopene extended the lifespans of mice inoculated with human prostate cancer cells and suppressed tumor growth by 73% after 42 days, but that high doses of lycopene or vitamin E had no effect. 15 However, other scientists reviewing the research feel that lycopene by itself has been shown in other studies to be effective by itself, though it can be potentiated by vitamin E.
Dietary Sources of Plant Phytochemicals
High plasma carotenoid concentration is an indication of high intake of fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene (carrot, spinach, kale and cantaloupe), lycopene (tomato, pink grapefruit, watermelon and apricots) and lutein (dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, collards, kale and broccoli) have synergistic actions not found in a single-ingredient supplement. In nature, beta-carotene occurs along with other bioactive substances such as vitamins C and E, which moderate its function. There are over 600 different carotenoids found in yellow, red, and deep green vegetables and fruits, as well as numerous other phytochemicals.
Smokers (and perhaps also heavy drinkers) should be especially wary of isolated beta-carotene supplements. They may boost lung cancer rates in smokers by 18% to 28% , according to two separate studies (the 1996 Beta Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Trial , and a Finnish study published in the 1994 Journal Of The American Medical Association). This negative effect was not seen in smokers who obtained carotenoids from their diets.
On average, conventional produce has only 83 percent of the nutrients of organic produce. Studies have found significantly higher levels of nutrients such as vitamin C, iron, magnesium and phosphorus, and significantly less nitrates (a toxin) in organic crops. Choose organic foods and make the mainstay of your diet fruits and vegetables, preferably brightly-colored ones which contain the most vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
It is recommended that cancer patients invest in a juicer, and consume a glass of organic vegetable juice every day. This will insure high levels of antioxidants and vitamins, combined together as they are found in nature. Good vegetables to juice are carrots, beets, parsley, wheatgrass and barley grass.
Seaweed is also high in polysaccharides, but the FDA crushed one of the superb seaweed products from Tonga because they claimed there was no “scientific evidence” for seaweed. Apparently, the people at the FDA have not heard about the Nobel Prize. Actually, the FDA has not only tried to crush polysaccarides, but also the more potent Acemannan glyconutrient sugars, which are required by the immunity system to be able to communicate.
Here is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED seaweed product, Modifilan (brown seaweed has at least 3 nutrients that kill cancer cells; furanone, fuecoiden, and algenic acid):
Men and women taking selenium supplements for 10 years had 41 percent less total cancer than those taking a placebo, a new study by Cornell University and the University of Arizona shows. “Although more than a hundred of animal and dozens of epidemiological studies have linked high selenium status [in comparison to] cancer risk, this is the first double-blind, placebo-controlled cancer prevention study with humans that directly supports the thesis that a nutritional supplement of selenium, as a single agent, can reduce the risk of cancer,” said Gerald F. Combs Jr., a nutritional biochemist and Cornell professor of nutritional sciences. Prostate, esophageal, colorectal and lung cancer rates were among the most dramatic: patients in the selenium group had 71 percent, 67 percent, 62 and 46 percent reductions in cancer rates, respectively, than the placebo group.
Selenite in Selenium Causes the Death of Mesothelial Cells
The most water-soluble form of selenium, known as sodium selenite, contains a compound that can kill mesothelial cells in laboratory cultures.
A study done in Sweden shows that selenite kills two types of mesothelial cells – the epitheloid, which is the most common form of asbestos cancer and the sacromatoid, the least common but most deadly form.
Researchers emphasized the following observations.
* After 24 hours of treatment, cell death in the epithelioid cells was 25%, 30% in the sacromatoid cells;
* Death triggered by selenite alone accounted for 15% of sacromatoid cells, 8% of epithelioid cells.
* Even a protein that masterminds cell death which increased in the mesothelial cells after the selenite treatment,is de-activated by the selenite.
* The action of selenite seems to take multiple pathways, suggesting that a “variety of mechanisms are involved,” hence increasing its effectiveness.
While selenite seems promising, there is still a great deal of research that needs to be done before its safety and effectiveness can be confirmed.
Stabilized Aloe Vera
In laboratory studies, aloe vera gel inhibited angiogenesis – the production of new blood vessels to feed tumors. Studies in test tubes and animals suggest that active substances in aloe leaf extracts (which contain both aloe gel and aloe latex) may have immunostimulant and anti-cancer effects. Aloe improves wound healing and inhibits inflammation. This information has inspired the production of one commercial substance for people with cancer which combines aloe leaf, honey, and gin. However, studies of the use of this substance in people are lacking and, therefore, the safety and effectiveness of this product is not known. Thousands of websites and hundreds of commercial products may claim all kinds of things regarding the benefits of aloe, but common sense should prevail. One fact cannot be denied though, humanity has used aloe for health concerns of many types for thousands of years.

Cancer Stem Cells: Methods and Protocols, published by Humana Press. Dr. Yu, a Harvard-educated and Massachusetts General Hospital-trained physician-scientist who has received numerous awards for his work in neurological studies, was the editor for the book, which takes a look at the role of stems cells in cancer initiation and propagation.
Tumeric The Spice that Ignites Your Body’s Astonishing Immune System
5 to 8 times stronger than vitamin E and stronger than vitamin C, this ‘antioxidant breakthrough’ may help boost your immunity, maintain normal cholesterol levels, and put the brakes on aging.*
You may already know I place a strong emphasis on eating as much unprocessed, organically grown food as possible for optimal health.
One frequently overlooked way to enhance and optimize health with organically grown food is the use of herbs and spices – unprocessed and organic, of course.
One amazing benefit of these herbs is that they’re very low in calories, while being dense in vitamins and minerals.
In the same vein, they’re thermogenic, meaning they naturally boost your metabolism to help you burn calories.* You feel satisfied more easily, so you eat less.* Studies show that consuming certain herbs and spices before each meal can potentially reduce your caloric intake.*
Due to their nutrient-dense status, they promote your overall wellbeing with antioxidants more potent than many fruits and veggies.*
Herbs and spices promote health and wellbeing in your entire body, not just in a particular area.*
This “whole person” approach is why I believe these spices and herbs can benefit you so greatly.
But I consider one particular spice the “granddaddy” of them all, because its benefits are so amazing and far-reaching.
Don’t Waste Your Time and Health with Synthetically Processed Herbs and Spices.Just as it’s important to select and consume wholesome, unprocessed organic foods, you should do the same with herbs and spices.
Avoid breezing down the spice aisle of your local grocery store to pick up any old herb or spice. It is important to be very selective.
If the herb or spice you’re looking for is processed or not organically grown, you risk missing out on their most potent active ingredients, which provide you with optimal benefits. If the herb or spice isn’t cultivated, harvested, produced, and packaged using certified organic processes, you could be robbed of its healthful active ingredients.
In fact, I recommend you totally avoid herbs and spices that aren’t 100% certified organic. Why waste your time — and risk potential health consequences from artificial ingredients and questionable chemical processes?
India is the home of Ayurveda, recognized as an authoritative source of knowledge and truth in natural health promotion — with herbs and spices lying at the very heart of Ayurvedic practice. So it would make perfect sense top consider using herbs that were grown in India if you are considering Ayurvedic herbs
How this Ancient Spice Originated Thousands of Years Ago
That’s one of the reasons I traveled over 15,000 miles to India last year — to find a high quality source of these herbs. During my trip to India, I witnessed firsthand how the Ayurvedic holistic approach and organic processes work in unison.
And of the many herbs and spices I studied, the one in particular that caught my immediate attention was turmeric. It provides you with these whole-person benefits:
* Supports your healthy joint function*
* Promotes your radiant skin*
* Helps improve your digestion*
And so much more…
There’s some debate about the timing of turmeric’s first use as a healthy spice.
But one thing is certain. Thousands of years ago, people in India and China used the spice. In fact, some stories suggest usage dates back 10,000 years in India when they say Lord Rama walked the earth.
And the ancient Polynesians carried turmeric with them on their incredible voyage across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. Today, Hawaiians still use this spice — known to them as Olena.
While in China, Marco Polo in 1280 AD recorded information on turmeric in his diary:
“There is also a vegetable which has all the properties of true saffron, as well the smell and the color, and yet it is not really saffron.”
So, turmeric has been used as a substitute for saffron (an old world spice) in Europe for over 700 years.
One of the main healthful ingredients in turmeric is curcumin (a curcuminoid), which as I said, gives turmeric its yellow color.
Western scientists first isolated the curcumin molecule in 1815, obtained its crystalline form in 1870, and determined its overall structure in 1910.
Curcumin can potentially benefit you by:
Promoting your immune system against stress*
* Promoting your immune system*
* Helping you maintain your healthy digestive system*
* Supporting your healthy bones, joints, and overall skeletal system*
* Helping you maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range*
* Promoting your healthy blood and liver functions*
How Turmeric and Curcumin Provide Antioxidant Nutrients*
You probably know that antioxidants are important for your health.
I believe antioxidants are your body’s #1 way to neutralize free radicals and help you potentially slow down the signs of normal aging.*
Oxidation by free radicals can damage cells and organs — and thus impact your aging process* — something I’m sure you’d rather put the brakes on.
Antioxidants are also key nutrients in:
* Supporting your memory function*
* Promoting your heart health*
* Boosting your immune system*
Turmeric’s antioxidants help protect your cells from free radical damage.*
The antioxidant content within turmeric comes from active compounds called curcuminoids.
These curcuminoids deliver antioxidants that may be:
* 5 to 8 times stronger than vitamin E — and also stronger than vitamin C
* 3 times more powerful than grape seed or pine bark extract
* Strong enough to scavenge the hydroxyl radical — considered by many to be the most reactive of all oxidants*
How Turmeric Enhances Your Outer Beauty*
Speaking of antioxidant nutrients and their potential to impact the aging process, some of the first aging signs you may see as you get older are changes to your skin.
Believe it or not, the organic ingredients found in turmeric can help promote your healthy skin.*
How, you ask? Curcuminoids support important blood and liver functions, healthy joints, and your overall well-being,* which in turn helps promote radiant, supple skin.*
Turmeric has been considered to be ‘skin food’ for thousands of years in India and other cultures.*
* Cleanse your skin and maintain its elasticity*
* Provide nourishment to your skin*
* Balance the effects of skin flora*
So, turmeric can act as your one-two punch against normal aging with its skin promotion and antioxidant capabilities — outer beauty plus inner purity.*
Your Triple-Action Cellular Booster and Adaptogen*
Another potential advantage from turmeric usage involves the smallest living things within you — your cells.
Turmeric can assist your cells in three ways, by:
* Helping neutralize substances that can cause cellular stress*
* Maintaining your cells’ integrity when threatened by occasional environmental stressors*
* Providing the antioxidants you need to help support your cells against excessive oxidation and free radicals*
Turmeric is also recognized as an adaptogen — helping to support your body against stress and providing immune system support.*
Hpow this Ancient Spice has Become
Embedded in India’s Ayurvedic Practice
Turmeric, like other herbs and spices, is a principle herb in Ayurveda — India’s ancient holistic health system. Ayurveda means “knowledge of life” — with herbs lying at the very heart of Ayurvedic practice.
Turmeric has multiple uses within Ayurveda, including blood cleansing and maintaining healthy skin.*
In Ayurvedic terminology, turmeric includes the following:
* Verdana sthapana — promotes your healthy nervous system and helps you with occasional discomfort*
* Sangrahani — supports your absorption of vitamins and minerals*
* Anulomana — helps you in purging out wastes and building healthy blood*
* Rakta stambhaka — promotes the wellness of your circulatory system*
And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Ayurvedic turmeric uses.
What does this mean to you?
Simply, turmeric has been used in Indian culture for thousands of years for a multitude of health-promoting reasons.* An estimated 500 million Indians still use the spice today.
What’s Your Best Sources for Turmeric?
So by now, you might be wondering about potential sources of turmeric.
Well, you may already know you can find it in the spice aisle of your local grocery store. But as mentioned earlier, I don’t recommend using your local grocery store, due to the quality of their herbs and spices.
Even though there may be some good spices available there, it’s very difficult to verify their purity and potency.
Also, the turmeric powder you buy in your store is a spice. It doesn’t necessarily come from high-quality organic herbs — and is not produced using certified organic processes, causing you to risk missing its healthful benefits.
What’s more… with store-bought turmeric powder, you’ll probably just use it once in awhile to cook with — not on a daily basis to consistently take advantage of the benefits it offers.
So, what other options do you have?
I recommend searching for a high-quality, 100% organic-based turme ric sup plement.
But there are some things you should watch for when choosing a turmeric supplement.
Avoid Unnecessary Fillers, Additives, and Excipients
When I did my own research on available turmeric supplements, I found a surprising array of choices.
Besides, curcumin and curcuminoid ingredients, I found products with questionable ingredients like fillers, additives, and excipients. An excipient is a substance added to the supplement as a processing or stability aid.
One ingredient, magnesium stearate (also know as stearic acid), is a potentially toxic metal additive from pill production.
Another ingredient I found in many turmeric supplements, Dibasic Calcium Phosphate (DCP), may even inhibit the absorption of essential minerals within your system.
There are others you may find as well, but the bottom line is… you don’t want or need these ingredients in your turmeric supplement. Some pose potential health risks — and all are unnecessary.
Make Sure Your Herbal Supplement Comes from aCertified Organic Producer Committed to Quality Processes
The key to delivering an organic-based turmeric supplement rests in the manufacturer’s commitment to quality and excellence.
In fact, I believe that without these quality processes in place, it really doesn’t matter what organic herbs are harvested. You simply won’t end up with a top-notch consistent organic formula. In turn, you won’t receive the maximum potential value of the herb.
So, it’s important to highly scrutinize and research the manufacturer’s credentials.
In fact, you may not be able to stop with the manufacturer alone. Keep in mind, the total organic process involves planting, cultivation, selective harvesting, and then producing and packaging the final formula.
Here’s the type of certifications I recommend you look for:
* Hazards and Critical Control Points (HACCP) — International food safety certification that World Health Organization (WHO) standards are met
* Safe Quality Food (SQF) — HACCP-based food safety and risk management system covering the identification of food safety, quality risks, and the validation and monitoring of control measures
* Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) — International certification verifies all required practices necessary for an effective food safety program are followed
* International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2000 — International standard for quality, safety, ecology, economy, reliability, compatibility, inter-operability, efficiency, and effectiveness
* Orthodox Union (OU) Kosher — Certifies compliance for Kosher observers and followers
* International organic certificationssuch as: USDA, EU, and NSOP (India)
Use This Checklist to Find Your Highest Quality Turmeric
To take advantage of all the great benefits turmeric has to offer you, I created a checklist on what you should look for in a turmeric supplement.
Whatever you do, don’t settle for second best.
Here’s my checklist to help you find the best turmeric source:
* Contains only 100% certified organic ingredients — Turmeric extract with at least 95% curcuminoids
* Comes in supplement form — Don’t rely on your typically low quality and unpredictable local grocery store spice. Additionally when you heat the spice during cooking many of the beneficial properties are lost.
* Avoids fillers, additives, and excipients — No need for questionable “other ingredients” in the formula
* Provides a vegetable capsule — Avoid gelatin-based capsules whenever possible
* Is produced by a certified organic manufacturer with high-quality organic and safe production practices — Don’t settle for second best here!
13 Ways this Ancient Herb Can Help You
Spice Up Your Life (and Your Health*)
Let me summarize thirteen ways this 100% certified organic-based Turmeric can spice up your whole person:
1. Boosts your antioxidant protection against free radicals*
2. Helps promote your healthy skin*

Millions of people use turmeric on a daily basis in their lives today. In India alone, up to 500 million people use it in one form or another every day.
Milkweed Sap cures common Skin Cancers
by: S. L. Baker, features writer
(NaturalNews) If you talk about herbs, plants and other totally natural substances having the potential to actually cure cancer, odds are you’ll be greeted with eye-rolling and disbelief — especially from the mainstream medical establishment. But research just published in the Journal of British Dermatology provides compelling evidence that the sap from a common weed known as milkweed or petty surge can literally cure certain types of cancers.
Although regarded as a nuisance weed by most gardeners, the plant (whose botanical name is Euphorbia peplus) has been valued for centuries in many folk medicine traditions as a treatment for asthma, warts and several types of cancer. Now a group of Australian scientists from a number of medical institutions in Brisbane have tested milkweed sap on humans and found that it works remarkably well on non-melanoma skin cancers. The researchers believe the plant substance is effective due to a compound it contains called ingenol mebutate which destroys cancer cells.
Non-melanoma skin cancers, which affect hundreds of thousands of people world-wide, are rarely fatal. However, they can be disfiguring without treatment — which can involve extensive and repeated surgery. These malignant lesions usually appear on the areas of the body most often exposed to the sun, including the head, neck, ears, and back of the hands.
For the new study, the researchers recruited 36 patients with a total of 48 non-melanoma lesions included basal cell carcinomas (BCC), squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) and intraepidermal carcinomas (IEC), a growth of cancerous cells confined to the outer layer of the skin. Some of these people had skin cancers that had failed to respond to conventional treatment including surgery. The rest had refused surgery or had been told surgery was not an option for them due to advanced age.
The research participants were treated once a day for three consecutive days by an oncologist who used a cotton applicator to simply cover the surface of each cancerous lesion with milkweed sap. One month later, 41 out of 48 cancers had complete disappeared.
Patients who had some of lesions remaining after four weeks were given a second course of milkweed sap treatment. And about 15 months following treatment, two thirds of all the 48 skin cancer lesions were still showing a complete cure. The final outcome was a 75 per cent total response for IEC lesions, 57 per cent for BCC and 50 per cent for SCC lesions. What’s more, when the lesions disappeared, the skin was left soft and clear.

Coconut Oil is More Efficacious for Alzheimer’s than All Big Pharma has to Offer
Friday, November 12, 2010 by: Paul Fassa, citizen journalist
Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/030373_coconut_oil_Alzheimers_disease.html#ixzz16hysiM4F
A doctor’s husband made a remarkable reversal of his serious Alzheime’s problem by ingesting coconut oil daily. Dr. Mary Newport had her husband Steve get off the pharmaceutical Alzheime’s drugs as his condition just kept worsening with them, along with added negative side effects.
Alzheimer’s disease affects over 5 million in the USA, and ranks seventh in deaths from diseases. Steve’s condition has improved greatly since coconut oil was included in his diet.
How Dr. Newport Found the Coconut Oil Solution
Mary had helped her husband Steve volunteer for a promising Alzheimer drug trial, but not in time to be accepted. She researched the new drug and discovered it was a pharmaceutical version of MCT oil, (Medium Chain Triglycerides). Then she realized that both coconut and palm kernel oils naturally contained MCTs.
MCTs are easier to quickly digest than other types of fats. They require less bile and enzyme action for intestinal absorption, and they are metabolized quickly in the liver. Therefore, MCTs expend energy more rapidly and strongly with less fats storing in the blood and tissues.
Metabolizing MCTs creates ketones. Recent research, which led to Big Pharma`s attempt to duplicate naturally occurring MCTs, has shown that ketones help protect against Alzheimer’s, even reverse it. Compared to Big Pharma`s synthetic version of MCT Oil, naturally sourced ketones remain in one’s body over twice as long, eight hours compared to three.
So Mary Newport’s investigation led her to a less expensive solution for her husband without the often predictable side effects of a pharmaceutical. Her sharing of the informationbenefits all of us. And lately more and more nutritional value has been attributed to coconut oil. But this is all relatively new knowledge.
This is Now; That Was Then
Since a few decades ago, coconut oil was demonised by the food processing industry`s quest to lower their cost, boost profit margins, and create longer shelf life by using hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. Butter and palm oil were also included in the food industry’s fear campaigns to get consumer consent for using the more unhealthy Trans fatty acid oils, including margarine.
Until then, coconut and palm oils were used in all sorts of packaged foods and baked products. Butter was considered okay. That gradually changed until dangerous margarine and partially and fully hydrogenated cooking oils moved onto grocery shelves, packaged foods, and baked products - replacing the falsely demonised coconut and palm oils.
Recent research has debunked the emphasis of cholesterol dangers as exaggerated or even false. Even if saturated fats, such as coconut oil are high in “bad” cholesterol, Trans fats or hydrogenated oils have been proven to be worse for human health, even toxic.
Now real science and human experience are proving the health benefits of coconut oil. Almost all health food stores have it. Large quantities can be ordered on line. The ideal coconut oil is organic virgin. But not so ideal has some virtues remaining as well.
Coconut oil is considered a saturated fat because it is solid, though it begins melting above 75 degrees Fahrenheit, or 24 degrees Celsius. In addition to ingesting it, say with dark chocolate to make it yummy, coconut oil is one of the best oils for cooking because of its very high smoke/strong temperature; this m/pakes it less likely to turn toxic from excess heat than olive and other pure vegetable oils.
Yes, saturated fats were falsely demonised and those lies were almost totally accepted by consumers and health professionals until recent years. But that was then, and this is now.

Cloves are the Best Antioxidant, Says New Study
(NaturalNews) New research from the Miguel Hernandez University (UMH) has found that cloves (Syzygium aromaticum) are the “best” natural antioxidant. The study examined five antioxidant properties, with cloves showing amazing results for each. Cloves are used primarily in cooking throughout the world but found primarily in Indian cuisine. Cloves have also been used for medicinal purposes, such as in Indian Ayurvedic medicine, Chinese medicine, and western herbalism. In dentistry, cloves are also used as a painkiller.
The study found that cloves contain high levels of phenolic compounds, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-clotting properties. This was a major factor in labeling cloves the best natural antioxidant, but the study found that cloves also have other beneficial properties.
“Out of the five antioxidant properties tested, cloves had the highest capacity to give off hydrogen, reduced lipid peroxidation well, and was the best iron reducer,” says Juana Fernandez-Lopez, one of the authors of the study and a researcher at the UMH.
Lipid peroxidation is the process in which free radicals take electrons from the lipids in cell membranes. The end result of this process is cellular damage. The fact that cloves help to inhibit this destructive cycle is one that helped drive them to first place. Furthermore, the ability to reduce iron is yet another profound characteristic of cloves.
Iron deficiencies are rather simple to treat with adequate supplementation or dietary changes, but excessive iron in the body can be quite difficult to treat. Many people suffer from too much iron in the bloodstream, and many of which develop hemochromatosis. Hemochromatosis is a serious condition that is a result of untreated iron overload. Hemochromatosis can lead to arthritis, abnormal liver function, diabetes, or even heart failure.
Another goal of the study is to convince large corporations to begin adding cloves to their food products. Cloves are very inexpensive and have been a major part of the Mediterranean diet for centuries.
“The results show that use of the natural oxidants occurring in spices used in the Mediterranean diet, or their extracts, is a viable option for the food industry, as long as the organoleptic characteristics of the food product are not affected”, adds Juana.
Cloves may be what people are looking for when it comes to finding an affordable and practical spice.
A Fluoride Free Pineal Gland Is More Important Than Ever (NaturalNews) There has been some controversy over the activity of adding synthetic fluoride to municipal water supplies and elsewhere, but not enough. The seriousness of this issue is more than what most realize. Fluoridation ranks with GMO’s and tainted, forced vaccinations among the great crimes against humanity.
Understanding the Different Fluorides
There are two types of fluoride. Calcium Fluoride, which appears naturally in underground water supplies, is relatively benign. However, too much consumed daily can lead to bone or dental problems. Calcium is used to counter fluoride poisoning when it occurs. This redeeming factor indicates that the calcium in naturally formed calcium fluoride neutralizes much of fluoride’s toxic effects.
On the other hand, the type of fluorides added to water supplies and other beverages and foods are waste products of the nuclear, aluminum, and now mostly the phosphat e (fertilizer) industries. The EPA has classified these as toxins: fluorosilicate acid, sodium silicofluoride, and sodium fluoride.
For this article, the term Sodium Fluoride will include all three types. Sodium fluoride is used for rat poison and as a pesticide. According to a scientific study done several years ago, Comparative Toxicity of Fluorine Compounds, industrial waste sodium fluorides are 85 times more toxic than naturally occurring calcium fluoride.
Health Hazards of Sodium Fluoride
Generally, most fluoride entering the body is not easily eliminated. It tends to accumulate in the body’s bones and teeth. Recently, it has been discovered to accumulate even more in the pineal gland, located in the middle of the brain.
This consequence of dental fluorosis, which seriously harms teeth, from daily fluoridation has been documented. Yet, the American Dental Association (AMA) continues beating a dead horse, promoting fluoride. There is a refusal to admit that instead of preventing tooth decay, fluoride causes even more dental harm.
The flood of sodium fluoride in water and food also creates other more serious health problems that are not widely publicized, even suppressed. Nevertheless, in addition to fluorosis, independent labs and reputable researchers have linked the following health issues with daily long term intake of sodium fluoride:
*Genetic DNA Damage
*Thyroid Disruption – affecting the complete endocrine system and leading to obesity
*Neurological – diminished IQ and inability to focus, lethargy and weariness.
*Melatonin Disruption, lowers immunity to cancer, accelerates aging, sleep disorders.
*Pineal Gland, calcification, which clogs this gland located in the middle of the brain.
How Did We Get Stuck With Stuff?
According to investigative journalist Christopher Bryson, author of The Fluoride Deception, getting large quantities of sodium fluoride into the water and food system was a ploy of public relations sponsored by the industries who were saddled with getting rid of the toxic materials.
Fluoride was necessary for the processing or enriching of uranium. The pro-fluoride propaganda was started during the Manhattan Project to create the first atom bombs in the 1940′s. The spin was to convince workers and locals where the largest nuclear plant was located in Tennessee that fluoride was not only safe, it was good for kids’ dental health.
In the early 1950′s, the notorious spin master and father of advertising, Edward Bernays, continued the campaign for adding fluorides to water supplies as an experiment in engineering human consent! Then the AMA picked up on the dental issue and endorsed sodium fluoride’s addition to water supplies. The few dissenting health studies and reports were usually squashed. Those dissenting voices were dismissed as quacks regardless of their credentials.
Approximately 2/3 of the USA water supply is laced with sodium fluoride. Sodium fluoride is a common pesticide. So that residue is in some foods. Some sodas, packaged orange juices, and even bottled drinking water for babies contain fluoride additives. Buyer beware. Read your labels carefully.
Cinnamon & Honey
These facts on honey and cinnamon are worth checking out with your natural health expert:
It is found that a mixture of honey and cinnamon may cure most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a “Ram Ban” (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, on its issue dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.
Arthritis patients may take daily, morning, and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen
University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.
Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth. This may be applied three times a day until the tooth stops aching.
Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient were found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol. (By the way. if you’re taking cholesterol medicine STOP! They all contain STATIN which weaken your muscles…including YOUR HEARTand none has been shown to stop heart attacks or strokes!!!!
Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.
According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.
Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.
A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural Ingredient which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft /strongand arprests old age. Life spans also increases and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.
Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste.
Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.
