Numbers published today in CIHI’s report Physicians in Canada, 2014 show that the number of doctors has been steadily increasing over the last decade, reaching almost 80,000 in 2014. In addition, gross payments to physicians continued to rise, with physicians earning an average of $336,000 in 2013–2014, an increase of 2.4% from the previous year. The annual average payment per physician ranged from $263,000 in Nova Scotia to $368,000 in Ontario.
The national trend masks some regional differences. For example, the number of doctors in Alberta and Saskatchewan has increased by 20% in the last 5 years, the highest among the provinces. During the same period, British Columbia, Quebec and Prince Edward Island had the lowest increases of between 10% and 11%.
In 2014, the overall physician-to-population ratio reached 224 physicians per 100,000 population. Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec recorded the highest per-population rates of 260, 248 and 239 physicians, respectively.

Filed Under:The Province > Health > Local Health

Eric Hoskins, the Ontario health minister, dropped this eye-opener at a press conference a week or so ago: of the more than 500 doctors in that province who bill the provincial health insurance program more than $1 million, there’s one ophthalmologist who pulls in $6.6 million.
Ontario doctors have been without a contract for two years so Hoskins drew their ire for “recklessly” singling out the richest doctors and for also saying this:
The provocative information about the $6.6 million eye surgeon was truly a revelation for most of us who had no clue there are Canadian doctors working in a socialized health care system who make as much as their American counterparts. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised about this, however, since fees paid to doctors comprise a whopping nine per cent of the entire provincial budget in BC (10 per cent in Ontario).
The escalating tension between Ontario doctors and the provincial Liberal government has been building for months. The Ontario government is seeking to do what BC started years ago – make family medicine more attractive (lucrative) through a recalibration of fees as Globe and Mail columnist Andre Picard wrote. That means reducing fees for some and raising them for others.
MEDICINE MATTERS: Unlike Ontario, no $6 million doctors in BC, but 180 who earn over $1 million

My goodness, this thread is so depressing...

I live in Asia and i eat allot of salt, which is iodized. Does this help? Also, I'm drinking heavily calcified water....must be good as well?

Thanks for an interesting yet shocking thread mate. So sorry about your brother...

XS

Thanks XS (re brother) - much appreciated.
I still miss him.

(Sorry about the late reply I stopped reading the thread for a while)

Thanks for your question.

I stopped reading the thread .. I was quite angry and sad about my brother's death.

Iodized salt does not help. (It is thought to acidify the body == acid body opens the pathway to cancer)

You should use sea salt (after buying it sterilize it in the oven by heating it above 250 degrees F for 15 min or so.

Regular salt (sodium chloride) needs to be balance with Potassium (available in foods like bananas and in a pill from the vitamin store) in a 1:1 ratio. The ratio allows the body to shed any excess sodium chloride from the body. (IF you eat manufactured foods you are probably getting too much regular salt.)

powdered kelp is one food source of iodine.

(The Lugol drops is a special recipe of Iodine.)

Thanks, i think i was concerned about radiation at the time from Fukushima.

Great thread though. I've got a 2 year old now, so i'm constantly checking the ingredients here in Australia for food additives. Generally his diet is very good, he loves fresh fruit and vegies. He doesn't eat allot of meat and loves fish.

I was quite surprised how much MSG is in snack food here in Australia. As well as other flavor enhancers. There is allot of organic snack foods available for kids now too.

Good to hear you fed him organic.

Really if one can afford it one should only eat fresh raw food (organic) washed of course.
With meats/fish/eggs you must of course be aware of parasites and so cooking is safer.

In the USA company are allowed to use 150 chemicals that they can label natural flavors and colorings - so really if you do buy any manufactured food - which I'm not recommending - then any added flavorings or color would be a good reason to put it back on the store shelf. :-)

By Tess Challis, Healing the Body

Imagine a creamy dreamy soft ice cream that’s totally devoid of anything bad, and chock-full of everything good. You’re welcome.

Purpose
Bananas are a premium source of potassium, and cacao nibs are one of nature’s best (and most delicious!) antioxidant-rich whole foods. Add in some mineral rich and hormone balancing maca, and a few savoury spices, and you’ve got one of the most nutritious ice creams you will ever eat!

Equipment Required
Food processor

Ingredients
2 cups frozen banana chunks (frozen for at least 12 hours, using very ripe bananas)
¼ cup (or less) almond milk – just enough so that your mixture will blend
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Optional: 1 tablespoon maca powder
Dash ground nutmeg
Add last: 2 teaspoons raw cacao nibs

Directions
In a food processor with an S-blade, place all of the ingredients, except for the nutmeg and cacao nibs.
Blend until smooth and creamiliscious (it’s a word), using just enough of the almond milk so that your mixture blends up well.
Serve immediately, dusted with nutmeg and topped with the cacao nibs.

Be careful of large fish - e.g. tuna
Due to many years of China's dirty coal plants the mercury levels in the Pacific are so high that fish at the top of the food chain accumulate a lot of mercury in them.

I don't eat tuna due to dolphin friendly issues - but the mercury is also too high to be acceptable.

I saw a new study as well that says food is completely toxic to your body and we should completely remove it from our diet...(end sarcastic intro)

Unfortunately Zondor i want to believe what is in the link however given all the mis-information about these days, i honestly don't to what or whom to believe. It seems like one study says butter is unhealthy, then another study says margarine is unhealthy. My MD told me to eat more fish!!! FFS WTF is he on!

I understand that you are either Vegan or vegetarian. I respect that you care about your health and i assume that you have done the research to support your beliefs.

So how do you determine what and whom to believe?

Watch this Google talk, or don't. I hope it makes an impression on you. If it saves even one life....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rNY7xKyGCQ&ab_channel=TalksatGoogle

Most people will not, under any circumstances, reconsider their food choices. That's good for the financial health of the medical/drug racket.

What I do, or eat, has nothing to do with the validity of the information in the video, which is solely based on peer reviewed scientific studies in medical journals (not food industry advertising or supplement company advertising or drug company advertising). Which means nothing, and carries no weight with most people, including doctors, who don't really understand what "science" is.

Hello Guys,

it's about 20 years that I am interested in health, especially nutrition, have a medical background....
Lately I found this blog https://rawfoodsos.com/ of Denise Minger, a really skilled girl. She made a really good inspection to some note nutrition studies, see the famous " The China Study".
She wrote a book too, "Death by Food Pyramid", that I'm planning to buy.
Anyway on her blog u can find good resources about nutrition and diet and some information on supplements.
Her diet is enough close to mine, I'm a mostly fruits and vegetables and fish eater, a bit of granis, nuts and seeds, legumes, some fermented veggy foods (like miso soup, tempeh, kraut),f but not so strictly, sometimes I eat meat and eggs.
And you know in Italy we have a very good traditional cuisine, from which I sometimes I leave me captivated.
Bon appetite!

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
Luke.

Hemp seed oil is a great source of high-quality nutrients and has a long history of use in Eastern culture as a multi-purpose natural remedy. Despite its widespread popularity, prejudice related to its association with cannabis has kept it from common use in the West. While the oil contains virtually no THC, the psychoactive element in cannabis, hemp oil is still considered sketchy to some. Thankfully, education is prevailing and the market for hemp seed oil is growing in the United States, with an increasing number of people seeking it out for its reported health benefits.

1. Good for Heart Health

Hemp seed oil has a 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, a balance that has been shown to support heart health and promote proper cardiovascular function. [1] These nutrients play a role in many biological processes and may help prevent a number of degenerative diseases. [2]

2. Supports Healthy Skin, Hair, and Nails

Hemp seed oil is often used as a moisturizer for the skin, and for good reason. Studies have indicated that hemp seed oil can dramatically decrease skin dryness to alleviate itching and irritation. [3] Moreover, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may protect against the aging process while soothing the skin. [4]
3. Excellent Nutrition for Your Brain

Hemp seed oil contains essential fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), that are required for brain development. DHA is crucial to the health of the brain as well as the retina of the eye, particularly in the first year of life. [5] Mothers who supplement with hempseed oil during pregnancy may provide brain- and eye-protective benefits for the developing baby.
4. It’s a Mercury-Free Fatty Acid Supplement

Taking a fish oil supplement can be a helpful way to increase omega-3 fatty acids in your diet, a nutrient that is essential for brain development, immune system health, and mood regulation. [6] [7] [8] Expectant mothers certainly want to include these nutrients in their diet; however, fish contains a great deal of mercury which can hinder neurological and developmental mechanisms in the unborn baby. Fortunately, hemp seed oil works as a terrific alternative to traditional omega-3 fatty acid supplements and doesn’t carry the same risk of mercury ingestion. [9]
5. Supports the Immune System

The essential fatty acids in hemp seed oil have been shown to promote healthy flora in the intestines and support immune system response and function. [10] This can be very helpful during the cold and flu season when viruses are running rampant at school, work, and in everyday social interactions.

Here Are Hemp Oil's Most Significant Health Benefits:

  1. Hemp Oil Helps Maintain a Hormonal Balance: Hemp is the only edible seed that contains gamma-linolenic acid, which is eventually converted to the protective hormone prostaglandin PGE1 that regulates the hormonal balance and supports menopausal health.
  2. Hemp Oil Regenerates and Energizes The Skin’s Protective Layer: Due to its high content of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, hemp oil has a composition similar to skin lipids, which makes it an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer. It is especially useful for dry, tired or dehydrated skin and nails. It increases the skin elasticity and water retention capacity in tissues. Pure hemp oil can be used to treat dry hair and is often included in hair conditioners.
  3. Hemp Oil is Great For Vegetarians: Getting the right balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can be tricky for vegetarians and vegans. Hemp oil has the optimal ratio of these acids.
  4. Hemp Oil Helps Lower Cholesterol: The only vegetable oil to contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (3:1), hemp oil can help lower cholesterol levels by accelerating metabolic processes. With a faster metabolism, fats burn at a quicker rate and are not deposited on the artery walls.
  5. Hemp Oil Can Be Good For Diabetics: Due to its low carbohydrate and sugar content, hemp oil is can be a great food additive for diabetics. The nutrients present in it can help moderate blood sugar levels.
  6. Hemp Oil Can Help Prevent Psoriasis: Psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acids in the body. The fatty acids present in hemp oil help improve skin oxygenation and hydration.
  7. Hemp Oil Can Boost Your Immunity: Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids also improve immunity and regulate intestinal flora, thus building a natural barrier against microbes and increasing the resilience of the body.
  8. Hemp Oil Helps Prevent Demyelination Of Nervous System: Essential fatty acids are necessary for a healthy cell membrane structure. They also prevent the demyelination, the destruction of the myelin sheath (a membrane that protects the nerve cells).
  9. Hemp Oil Can Help Prevent Varicose Veins: Like other compounds high in omega-3s, hemp oil can thin your blood, reducing blood clots and varicose veins.

How much is needed?

Recommended daily intake for a person with an average build/ body fat profile is 2-4 dessert spoons (up to 50 ml) per day, or in the case of therapy this can be increased up to 150ml per day for approximately 7 days then reverting to the normal daily intake amount. The requirement of oil intake is now widely accepted as being 15%-20% of calorific requirement (daily average of 2000 calories for an average adult). EFA oils contain embodied energy of 9 calories per ml, which is mainly used by the body for structural, hormonal and electrical functions, rather than energy.

What are the beneficial properties of Hemp Seed Oil?

Because Hemp Seed Oil is such a rich source of both LA (Omega 6) and LNA (Omega 3) in balanced proportions, conditions caused by deficiencies in both can be treated with one oil.

The functions of LNA include: Production of smooth skin increased stamina, speeds healing, increases vitality, brings a feeling of calmness, reduces inflammation, water retention, platelet stickiness and blood pressure, enhances immune functions, reduces the pain and swelling of arthritis, can reverse pre-menstrual syndrome, can treat bacterial infections, brain development in children.

The functions of LA include

Energy production, growth vitality, mental state, oxygen transfer, formation of cell membrane, recovery from fatigue, secretion production in exocrine and endocrine glands, formation of prostaglandin's (to maintain cardiovascular system) keeping body fluids liquid, helping immune system resist and fight infection, prevention of allergies, functioning of heart tissue

The functions of GLA include

Conversion of LA to the beneficial prostaglandin's, cholesterol lowering actions, useful in treating degenerative diseases. The Oleic Acid (Omega 9) contained in Hemp Seed Oil helps keep arteries supple because of its fluidity. In excess Oleic acid can interfere with EFA's and prostaglandin's.

The low level of Stearic acid (18:0) in Hemp Seed Oil is beneficial as high levels of Stearic acid are more likely to form flow-impeding clots in blood vessels and work against the healing qualities of the EFA's.

Palmitic acid (16:0) commonly found as a high percentage in animal fats and tropical oils, it raises cholesterol levels.
Vitamins: are also present notably C, E, B1, B2 and carotene in a fat soluble, easily digestible form.
Minerals: mainly Phosphorus, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium.

Please note, oils that have been high temperature and solvent extracted then refined (most oils in the supermarkets) do not have the benefits left in them but contain detrimental Trans-fatty acids from hydrogenation.


EFA's increase metabolic rate, therefore increasing fat burn-off, helping you to become slim. Not to be seen as a singular solution, exercise and good eating habits need to be taken into account.

---------
Alpha Linolenic acid (LNA) Deficiency Symptoms - Omega 3



The symptoms of LNA deficiency include: Growth retardation, weakness, impairment of vision and learning ability, motor incoordination, tingling in arms and legs, behavioural changes.



Adding LNA back into the diet from which it is missing can reverse these symptoms. Other symptoms that can result from LNA (or w3) deficiency include; High triglycerides, high blood pressure, sticky platelets, tissue inflammation, edema, dry skin, mental deterioration, low metabolic rate, some kinds of immune dysfunction



Linoleic acid (LA) Deficiency Symptoms - Omega 6



The symptoms of LA deficiency include: Eczema-like skin eruptions, loss of hair, liver degeneration, behavioural disturbances, kidney degeneration, excessive water loss through the skin accompanied by thirst, drying up of glands, susceptibility to infections, failure of wound healing, sterility in males, miscarriage in females, arthritis-like conditions, heart and circulatory problems, growth retardation. Prolonged absence of LA from the diet is fatal. Adding LA back into the diet from which it is missing can reverse all of the deficiency symptoms.



In 1955 the Czechoslovakian Tubercular Nutrition Study concluded that hemp seed was the "Only food that can successfully treat the consumptive disease tuberculosis, in which the nutritive processes are impaired and the body wastes away"(Robinson 1996).

Combining Barley Grass with Hemp Oil



Mixing Hemp Oil with Barley Grass Powder, provides the benefits of the soluble proteins in Barley Grass Powder, along with all the huge array of other nutrients. Use 1 or 2 dessertspoons of Hemp oil to one heaped dessertspoon of Barley grass juice powder, half a glass of chemical free water, (do not use tap water, the chlorine in tap water turns nutrients into toxic, even carcinogenic chemicals!). This mix can be taken once or twice daily. It is the combination of the proteins in Barley Grass Powder that protect the Hemp oil from degradation in the body. The combination forms the basis of a powerful therapy that Dr Budwig used, and helps to deliver sunlight from sensible sun exposure to the cells for maximum benefit.

Danger # 1: Crystalline Fructose

The average person picking up a bottle of VitaminWater would easily think this is simply flavored water with added vitamins and minerals, which sounds like a good thing in theory.

But what you really get is 33 grams -- more than six teaspoons -- of sugar, including crystalline fructose.

I recently began warning about this new variety of fructose, which may be even worse for your health than high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

While many people mistakenly believe that fructose is an acceptable form of sweetener, it is far from healthy. Refined man-made fructose metabolizes to triglycerides and adipose tissue, not blood glucose. One major downside of this is that fructose does not stimulate your insulin secretion, nor enhance leptin production.

Together, insulin and leptin act as key signals in regulating how much food you eat, and several studies have linked dietary fructose to increased food intake and weight gain.

Additionally, fructose is also known to significantly raise your triglycerides, which puts you at an increased risk of heart disease.

Based on the latest research, crystalline fructose is definitely something you’ll want to avoid as much as possible. Whereas regular HFCS contains 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose, crystalline fructose is at minimum 99 percent fructose, which could only mean that all the health problems associated with fructose may be even more pronounced with this product.

And if that’s not bad enough, crystalline fructose may also contain arsenic, lead, chloride, and heavy metals.

So in no way, shape or form is VitaminWater something I’d consider healthy. As litigation director Steve Gardner of the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) previously stated:

"Coke fears, probably correctly, that they’ll sell less soda as Americans become increasingly concerned with obesity, diabetes, and other conditions linked to diets too high in sugar.

VitaminWater is Coke's attempt to dress up soda in a physician's white coat. Underneath, it’s still sugar water, albeit sugar water that costs about ten bucks a gallon."

The deceptive maneuvering of VitaminWater is a good reminder of the importance of reading labels and not swallowing snazzy slogans hook line and sinker. Anytime you opt to buy any kind of processed food or beverage, make sure to flip it over and read the ingredients for yourself, regardless of how healthy it appears at first glance.

Concern # 1: Erythritol

Sugar alcohols (also known as polyols) like erythritol are regulated as either GRAS or food additives. Despite the name, sugar alcohols are neither sugar nor alcohol.

They vary in sweetness from about half as sweet as sugar to equally as sweet. They’re frequently combined with other low-calorie or artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, acesulfame-K, neotame, saccharin, or as in the case of VitaminWater, crystalline fructose.

The reason sugar alcohols provide fewer calories than sugar is because they are not completely absorbed in your body. However, this fact has certain drawbacks, none of which are good.

High intakes of foods containing sugar alcohols can lead to adverse physical symptoms like abdominal gas and diarrhea. Some polyols are clearly worse than others. Sorbitol or mannitol-containing foods, for example, are so potent they must display a warning on their label stating "excess consumption may have a laxative effect."

But erythritol may offer an explanation to the many reports of ill after-effects from drinking VitaminWater,1 such as:

Diarrhea
Headache
Stomachache

Exactly What is the New Sweetener Erythritol?

"Major Statin Drug Study Found to Be Flawed

A study known as the JUPITER trial initially suggested cholesterol-lowering statin drugs might prevent heart-related death in many more people than just those with high cholesterol. But two years after its publication in 2008, researchers came out saying the JUPITER results are flawed -- and that they do not support the benefits initially reported. Not only is there no "striking decrease in coronary heart disease complications," but a more recent report has also called into question drug companies' involvement in such trials.

According to a report by ABC News2 :

"... major discrepancies exists between the significant reductions in nonfatal stroke and heart attacks reported in the JUPITER trial and what has been found in other research ... 'The JUPITER data set appears biased,' [the researchers] wrote in conclusion."

If You Take Statins, You MUST Take CoQ10

Statins deplete your body of CoQ10, which can have devastating results. If you take statin drugs without taking CoQ10, your health is at serious risk. Unfortunately, this describes the majority of people who take them in the United States. CoQ10 is a cofactor (co-enzyme) that is essential for the creation of ATP molecules, which you need for cellular energy production. Organs such as your heart have higher energy requirements, and therefore require more CoQ10 to function properly. Produced mainly in your liver, it also plays a role in maintaining blood glucose.

Physicians rarely inform people of this risk and only occasionally advise them to take a CoQ10 supplement. As your body gets more and more depleted of CoQ10, you may suffer from fatigue, muscle weakness and soreness, and eventually heart failure.

Coenzyme Q10 is also very important in the process of neutralizing free radicals. So when your CoQ10 is depleted, you enter a vicious cycle of increased free radicals, loss of cellular energy, and damaged mitochondrial DNA. If you decide to take a CoQ10 supplement and are over the age of 40, it is important to choose the reduced version, called ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is a FAR more effective form—I personally take it daily for its many far-ranging benefits. As for dosage, Dr. Graveline, a family doctor and former astronaut, made the following recommendation in a previous interview on statins and CoQ10:

If you have symptoms of statin damage such as muscle pain, take anywhere from 200 to 500 mg
If you just want to use it preventively, 200 mg or less should be sufficient

Statins Impair Numerous Biological Functions

Statin drugs also interfere with other biological functions, including an early step in the mevalonate pathway, which is the central pathway for the steroid management in your body. Products of this pathway that are negatively affected by statins include:

All your sex hormones
Cortisone
The dolichols, which are involved in keeping the membranes inside your cells healthy
All sterols, including cholesterol and vitamin D (which is similar to cholesterol and is produced from cholesterol in your skin)

It's still uncertain whether statins actually deplete your body of vitamin D, but they do reduce your body's natural ability to create active vitamin D (1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol). This is the natural outcome of the drug's cholesterol-reducing ability, because you need cholesterol to make vitamin D! It's the raw material your body uses for vitamin D conversion after you've exposed your skin to sunlight. It's also well-documented that vitamin D improves insulin resistance, so needless to say, when you take a statin drug, you forfeit this 'built-in' health-promoting mechanism, which is yet another clue as to how statins can cause diabetes.

Ninety-Nine Out of 100 People Do Not Need Statin Drugs

That these drugs have proliferated the market the way they have is a testimony to the power of marketing, corruption and corporate greed, because the odds are very high— greater than 100 to 1—that if you're taking a statin, you don't really need it. The ONLY subgroup that might benefit are those born with a genetic defect called familial hypercholesterolemia, as this makes them resistant to traditional measures of normalizing cholesterol.

And, even more importantly, cholesterol is NOT the cause of heart disease.

If your physician is urging you to check your total cholesterol, then you should know that this test will tell you virtually nothing about your risk of heart disease, unless it is 330 or higher. HDL percentage is a far more potent indicator for heart disease risk. Here are the two ratios you should pay attention to:

HDL/Total Cholesterol Ratio: Should ideally be above 24 percent. If below 10 percent, you have a significantly elevated risk for heart disease.
Triglyceride/HDL Ratio: Should be below 2.

I have seen a number of people with total cholesterol levels over 250 who were actually at low risk for heart disease due to their elevated HDL levels. Conversely, I have seen many people with cholesterol levels under 200 who had a very high risk of heart disease, based on their low HDL. Your body NEEDS cholesterol—it is important in the production of cell membranes, hormones, vitamin D, and bile acids that help you to digest fat. Cholesterol also helps your brain form memories and is vital to your neurological function. There is also strong evidence that having too little cholesterol INCREASES your risk for cancer, memory loss, Parkinson's disease, hormonal imbalances, stroke, depression, suicide, and violent behavior.

What ? poison control - immediately?
So what will they do?
"Do not induce vomiting unless recommend by health professional" [ah, OK so when DO they recommend it?]

And if your out of a town? What are supposed to do?

---There are several poisons in mouthwash including fluoride: ----

"Poisonous Ingredients:
The ingredients in mouthwash that can be harmful in large amounts are:
Chlorhexidine gluconate
Ethanol (ethyl alcohol)
Hydrogen peroxide
Methyl salicylate

[so why are they in there? why do health officials allow them to needlessly ad these poisons?]

What to Expect at the Emergency Room

Take the container to the hospital with you, if possible.

The provider will measure and monitor the person's vital signs, including temperature, pulse, breathing rate, and blood pressure. Symptoms will be treated.

The person may receive:

Activated charcoal
Breathing support, including a tube through the mouth into the lungs, and breathing machine (ventilator)
Chest x-ray
EKG (electrocardiogram, or heart tracing)
Fluids through a vein (by IV)
Kidney dialysis (in serious cases)
Laxative
Tube through the mouth into the stomach to wash out the stomach (gastric lavage)

How Much Fluoride is in Your Water?

What's worse, one-quarter milligram of fluoride also equals just one glass of Chicago tap water…

"There seems to be a disconnect there," Dr. Osmunsen says. "They tell me not to swallow a quarter milligram of fluoride in my toothpaste, but they are forcing me to swallow a quarter milligram in just one glass of water.

… It's unbelievable. We know that we're getting some neurologic damage at very low levels. However, the latest research is even worse than that. We're finding an 8-point IQ drop when the serum blood level of fluoride goes from 0.04 to 0.08.

… The American Dental Association recommends that a woman have about 3 mg per day of fluoride as optimal and men about 4 mg per day as optimal. That is the same amount that causes between a 0.8 and a 0.12 level of fluoride in the blood.

The same level showing an 8-point IQ drop!"

Water Fluoridation = Profitable Toxic Waste Disposal!

China, in contrast, does NOT allow water fluoridation because it's too toxic and causes damage, according to their studies. Instead, the waste product from their phosphate fertilizer industry is shipped to the United States, where we add it to our water supply!

This is a very important point: the fluoride added to your water is NOT pharmaceutical grade. It's a toxic industrial waste product, which is also contaminated with lead, arsenic, radionucleotides, aluminum and other industrial contaminants.

About 75 percent of Americans get fluoridated water, and just over 65 percent have artificially fluoridated water with hydrofluorosilicic acid; the toxic waste product from phosphate industries. Meanwhile, naturally occurring fluoride is found in many water supplies, especially in volcanic regions and areas with harder water.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not distinguish between these two types of fluoride, but they should.

Naturally occurring fluoride in hard water areas often has a calcium fluoride. Calcium and fluoride bond very well and are not absorbed well by your body. Hydrofluorosilicic acid, on the other hand, dissolves easier and is absorbed by your body at a greater rate.

Natural calcium fluoride is about 1,000 times less toxic than hydrofluorosilicic acid or sodium fluoride, and this is because your body can't absorb nearly as much. (Note: Sodium fluoride is pharmaceutical grade fluoride, which is used in most studies, but NOT the kind added to water supplies.)

[but is in your toothpaste of which a tiny 1/2 pea size is the maximum amount - not a big long strip along the brush
So pictures of smiling approving mothers on TV adds are mothers approving of and encouraging the poisoning of their children. And where are the health professionals in all this ? laughing ]

-------- 25 yr dentist ----
I was certain fluoride was beneficial. I could see it in my patients' teeth. I was just absolutely certain that it was. When you have a tooth that's really hard and shiny and looking good, and no decay, that's the one that's had fluoride, right?

Well, I found out I was wrong.

I thought I was seeing the effects of fluoride when it really wasn't…Based on the science, people who have a higher socioeconomic bracket, people who are eating better, they have better teeth. I was looking at it and guessing, "well, this person is benefiting from fluoride" when they really weren't."

------ turned out he had never investigated it until his patients asked him too -- [guess he was making too much money to engage his brain - after all he IS a Doctor -- please bow and humble yourselves in my exalted presence.

--- after 25 years - not during his practice - not after one year or two years or three but 25 years -- he decides at repeated patients requests - who is leading the science? - to get this READ THE LABEL---

"As you probably know, mercury in dentistry is a massive health threat. Dr. Osmunson recounts a number of health problems he frequently saw in his patients, such as temporomandibular disorders, migraines and headaches. But he began to question whether fluoride, in addition to mercury, might be part of these problems.

"I was looking down at this basket of Crest toothpaste and said, okay Bill, you're a nutritionist. You got your Masters in Public Health in Nutrition. What does it say?

So I reached down and read the label on it: "Keep out of the reach of children under six years of age." Okay, that sounds reasonable. "Adults, apply a pea sized amount"… and "Contact poison control center if you swallow"…

Hang on a second!"

So, he started doling out pea-sized amounts of toothpaste onto a piece of paper to check how much toothpaste they're actually referring to, and to his great shock, he realized that "pea size" really means a "tiny baby pea size"—about half the size of a regular pea.

At that recommended rate, one tube of toothpaste should actually last you several years! That's how little you should use to remain within safe limits.

According to the research literature, you should brush with no more than one-quarter of a milligram of fluoride, and call Poison Control if you swallow that amount… When you see a toothpaste ad, that long swirl of toothpaste is actually more than one month's worth!"

Have you researched intermittent fasting on the effects of cholesterol levels. I did for a year and my HDL bumped up over 60 and triglycerides went down. Although, I can't attribute results solely to IF as I was also taking 5g fish oil daily ,and lost 20lbs

Thanks for responding. Cleaning out toxins, I think, is an idea aggressively marketed to sell products/juicers, without any factual basis. It's like those articles that's say it's time to buy the stock when is time to sell. There is some research though that shows fasting triggers increased cell apoptosis, which might reduce cancer occurrence. Supposedly research supports sauna use having a similar effect through increasing antioxidant activity in the body.



I believe the clearing up the skin is anecdotal (though maybe science just hasn't caught up with people's experience).

I know @Blash likes to research things , so I was hoping he would do the research on fasting for me I only have superficial knowledge on the matter.

Here are some links for the thread

If you see the one about the person with food allergies and fasting you will see it is the recommended way to test for allergens . (many times food and food-additive chemicals cause skin problems). I wouldn't wait for "science" to catch up. See link on
"To remain healthy, stay out of the Health Care System -deaths by the health care system"

Really the way to find out the benefits of occasional fasting is to try it.
(WD Gann had an ailment he and the doctors couldn't cure. He read of fasting in the bible and tried it and was cured. Try it. Prove it for yourself to yourself. You'll see.

Natural vitamin E is always listed as the "d-" form (d-alpha-tocopherol, d-beta-tocopherol, etc.)
Synthetic vitamin E is listed as "dl-" forms

--------good one ------
Natural Vitamin E May Prevent Cancer, Benefit Alzheimer's, and More

If the lung cancer study had used natural vitamin E for its research, they may have gotten entirely different results, as natural vitamin E has shown many cancer-fighting properties. For instance:

300 IUs of natural vitamin E per day may reduce lung cancer risk by 61 percent7
Gamma-tocotrienol, a cofactor found in natural vitamin E preparations, may decrease prostate tumor formation by 75 percent8
Gamma-tocotrienol also fights existing prostate cancer tumors and may inhibit growth in human breast cancer cells9

Aside from its cancer-preventive potential, natural vitamin E has also shown promise for:

Relieving the majority of symptoms associated with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a common obesity-related fatty liver disease.
Helping to delay loss of cognitive function, such as planning and organizing, in Alzheimer's patients.10 (This study actually used synthetic alpha-tocopherol that was not balanced with tocotrienols or any of the other tocopherols — beta, gamma, and delta. Chances are the benefits would have been even greater if the natural form was used.)
Lowering your risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss in the elderly.11
Boosting the improvements in blood vessel function that occur when a smoker quits smoking.12

The differing effects of synthetic versus natural vitamin E are significant, so if you're interested in supporting your health, you should seek vitamin E in its natural form only – ideally from food but alternatively from a natural supplement.

------------ bad one -------
Synthetic Vitamin E May Cause Lung Cancer

This is what the media headlines should have read, but very few media outlets have made the distinction that the study used DL-a-tocopheryl acetate, a synthetic form of vitamin E.

Synthetic vitamin E is a "byproduct of a petrochemical-dependent manufacturing process and may have adverse endocrine-disrupting activities."2

It is this synthetic form of vitamin E that has previously been linked to increased risks of prostate cancer, along with other ill effects such as a hemorrhagic stroke and pneumonia.3 The Toxicology Data Network also lists numerous health problems related to synthetic vitamin E at various dosages.4

----------------about Vit E ----------
Many are simply not aware that the term "vitamin E" actually refers to a family of at least eight fat-soluble antioxidant compounds, divided into two groups of molecules:

Tocopherols (which are considered the "true" vitamin E)
Tocotrienols

Each of the tocopherol and tocotrienol subfamilies also contains four different forms:

Alpha-
Beta-
Gamma-
Delta-

Each one of these subgroups has its own unique biological effects. Ideally, vitamin E should be consumed in the broader family of mixed natural tocopherols and tocotrienols, (also referred to as full-spectrum vitamin E) to get the maximum benefits.

The problem, as was once again highlighted with the aforementioned lung cancer study, is the vitamin E most often referred to in research (and sold in most stores) is the synthetic form of the vitamin, which will not provide your body with the benefits that natural full-spectrum vitamin E will.

----------- sudies set-up to fail --- why ? [ perhaps the profit motive of drug companies ?? -- "the Science" - please bow and pray to MDs (mighty dollars)]

Dr. Andrew Saul, the study was set up to fail:6

"Synthetic vitamin E was selected. It did not work.
Natural vitamin E was not used. Tocotrienols were not used. I challenge any scientist or journalist to try to explain these omissions away."

----------------good food sources --dietary sources of vitamin E, ------------

Nuts, such as hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, and pecans
Legumes
Green vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli

--------------- Rancid oils are they killing you? ------

While vitamin E is also found in vegetable oils, these are many reasons not to include these in your diet, including the facts that they will become rancid and oxidized when heated and typically are made from genetically engineered crops.

Cholesterol is actually a critical part of your body's foundational building materials and is absolutely essential for optimal health.

--------- rancid fat--------
"There is an excellent research on animals where they fed animals plenty of cholesterol in their diet and they did just fine. But when they gave them even small amounts of tainted cholesterol, meaning oxidized cholesterol, within weeks it showed up in fatty streaks in their arteries," Dr. Rowen says
"We know why now. There are receptors in the endothelial cells that are the lining of your arteries. There are receptors there for oxidized cholesterol. It picks it up, and it goes into the endothelial cells.

The problem is that oxidized cholesterol does not look native to your macrophages, your immune system. It actually looks like bacteria. The macrophages move in to try and clean up what it thinks is bacteria, and it creates a whole bunch of inflammation inside your arterial wall.

The real culprit is oxidized cholesterol."
------
The idea that high cholesterol causes heart disease is based on the premise that cholesterol is found in the plaque of people with coronary artery disease. But does that automatically mean that cholesterol itself is the root cause, and must be kept at a minimum to prevent plaque formation?
The answer is "no."

---statin killer -
"Think about this for a second. Your neurons are making it for a reason," Dr. Rowen says. "Just logically speaking, if you take a statin drug, which poisons the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase... Hello? Your brain is not going to make the cholesterol that it needs, so you can expect – you can predict –that there's going to be a problems, years down the line, and we're seeing it now with statin drugs affecting the brain."

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends keeping your total cholesterol below 200 mg/dL, but what they do not tell you is that total cholesterol level is just about worthless for determining your risk for heart disease, unless it is above 330. Additionally, the AHA updated their guidelines in 2004, lowering the recommended level of LDL cholesterol from 130 to less than 100, or even less than 70 for patients at very high risk. To achieve these outrageously low targets, you typically need to take multiple cholesterol-lowering drugs.

Statin drugs are very effective for lowering your cholesterol across the board. However, as mentioned earlier, they shut down your body's innate capability to create the cholesterol it needs for proper cellular- and brain function. Statins also prevent your body from generating sufficient levels of vitamin D from exposure to the sun, because the UVB rays in sunlight interact with the cholesterol in your skin and convert it to vitamin D. As Dr. Rowen explains, while statin drugs effectively reduce cholesterol values, they typically do not have an overall beneficial impact on health and longevity.

All that drug companies and the FDA are looking for is what symptom or lab level you are suppressing. They're not looking at it for long-term outcomes. That's absolute failing of the American medical system, where all that you're doing is measuring to suppress a symptom or a lab value like cholesterol, and you are not looking at what happens to these people 10 or 15 years later, which is identical to the vaccine problem."

Always – whether you're using red yeast rice or a statin drug – be sure to take Coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinol, because the same enzyme that makes the cholesterol also participates with CoQ10 production.
... If their total cholesterol is over 300 or 330, I would consider the use of red yeast rice or a statin. That's the only time I would consider it.

--------- how to naturally get to the right levels --

Seventy-five percent of your cholesterol is produced by your liver, which is influenced by your insulin levels. Therefore, if you optimize your insulin level, you will automatically optimize your cholesterol. This is why my primary recommendations for safely regulating your cholesterol have to do with modifying your diet and lifestyle as follows:

Reduce, with the plan of eliminating, grains and sugars in your diet. It is especially important to eliminate dangerous sugars such as fructose.
Consume a good portion of your food raw.
Make sure you are getting plenty of high quality, animal-based omega 3 fats, such as krill oil. New research suggests that as little as 500 mg of krill per day may lower your total cholesterol and triglycerides and will likely increase your HDL cholesterol.
Replace harmful vegetable oils and trans fats with healthful fats, such as olive oil and coconut oil (remember olive oil should be used cold only. Use coconut oil for cooking and baking)

Tip
[my insertion ------------------------]
I would like to differ with Mercola on this. ALL oils should be immediately kept in the fridge once opened. They will oxidize when exposed to air (In the bottle there is nitrogen at the top to stop this while the bottle is closed from the manufacturer) . Only buy high quality oils such as oils from Spectrum in dark glass bottles (now some manufacturers in health food store use the dark black plastic bottles for flax and hemp seed oil - these are probably OK). A small bottle of walnut oil might be $10+ . Walnut oil, almond oil, flax seed, hemp, grape seed are some good choices. Virgin oil oil in a glass bottle - this will harden in the fridge so when you open it pour it into glass jars and spoon it out when you need it. KEEP THEM IN THE FRIDGE once opened. Mix a tablespoon of omega 6, omega 9 and 2 tablespoons of omega 3 -use on your salad or put in a shake.

Don't cook with oil. IF you need some fat to cook - which I don't think you do. use some butter.
(Perhaps peanut butter (and coconut) is stable at heat - not sure)

Don't use Teflon pans!

Cheap grain oils - the ones you get in the grocery store in big plastic bottles - are hexane extracted - bad stuff

Include fermented foods in your daily diet. This will not only optimize your intestinal microflora, which will boost your overall immunity, it will also introduce beneficial bacteria into your mouth. Poor oral health is another indicator of increased heart disease risk.
Optimize your vitamin D levels, ideally through appropriate sun exposure as this will allow your body to also create vitamin D sulfate—another factor that may play a crucial role in preventing the formation of arterial plaque.
Exercise regularly. Make sure you incorporate high intensity interval exercises, which also optimize your human growth hormone (HGH) production.
Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol excessively.
Be sure to get plenty of high-quality, restorative sleep.

The genetically modified FLAX seed was named "Triffid" by Dr. Alan McHughen, the scientist who developed it at the University of Saskatchewan in the 1990s.
Renegade Genetically Modified Flax Seed is Crippling Canadian Market : TreeHugger

----------------------
The GM varieties approved include Ranger Russet, Russet Burbank and Atlantic, produced by J.R. Simplot Co. The potatoes have been genetically modified to reduce black spots and bruises by lowering certain enzymes. These varieties have also been also modified to produce less acrylamide -- a potentially cancer-causing chemical that forms when starchy foods are heated at high temperatures.

The varieties use a new form of genetic engineering known as RNA interference, according to the Center for Food Safety, an industry watchdog. In a press statement released in March 2015, Andrew Kimbrell, the center's director, said the consequences of this new form of genetic engineering are not yet well understood and referred to the introduction of GM potatoes as "risky." The center favors labeling GM foods so that consumers know which foods contain GMOs.
Some Food Suppliers Say No

Research submitted to the FDA by Simplot to gain approval has not been made public.
ConAgra Foods and McCain are among the food suppliers that say they won't use GM potatoes, according to a March 2015 Chicago Tribune article. Food chain McDonald's has also rejected Simplot's GM potatoes.

What Varieties of Potatoes Are GMO? | LIVESTRONG.COM
----------
Most Corn Is Hiding

GMO corn is engineered to produce its own insecticide called Bt toxin. Some newer varieties are also resistant to weed killers or herbicides. Avoiding GMO corn can be challenging because so many food products are derived from it or contain it. Obvious sources are sweet corn, corn muffins, corn chips, corn flakes, tortillas and popcorn. Less apparent sources may be hidden in the ingredient list, such as high fructose corn syrup, regular corn syrup, corn oil, corn starch, corn flour, dextrose, glucose and sugar alcohols such as xylitol. Most vitamin C supplements are synthesized from GMO corn.
Soy Is Sneaky, Too

GMO soy is engineered to resist being sprayed with weed killers. Popular soy foods are soy milk, tofu, soy chips, edamame, miso, soy sauce, baby formula, protein drinks, energy bars, bread made with soy flour and meat substitutes such as soy "turkey." Soybean oil is an ingredient in mayonnaise, salad dressings, prepared foods, canned tuna and supplements such as vitamin E. Partially hydrogenated soybean oil, a major source of trans fat, is used in baked goods and fried foods. Soy can be disguised as textured vegetable protein, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and natural flavoring, so reading labels is essential.

Other Sources of GMOs

Cottonseed oil, found in many processed foods and canned nuts, is mostly GMO. Canola oil, an ingredient in many so-called “healthy” foods, is also mostly GMO. Canola mayonnaise and salad dressings, therefore, are usually GMO, just like their soybean oil counterparts. Most commercial sucrose, or table sugar, is made from GMO sugar beets instead of sugar cane. Hawaiian papaya and some varieties of zucchini and yellow squash are GMO. Many dairy foods, unless specified otherwise on the label, contain traces of recombinant growth hormone (RBGH), administered to cows to increase milk production. Meat products that are not certified organic or grass-fed have been raised on GMO corn and soy.

My total cholesterol is now 147 down 66 points from 213. I'm 50. Did it with Niacin (nicotinic acid). Also makes me feel great.

More info from me upon asking......

Ron

Hi Ron, I was just thinking about my girlfriend (37) being diagnosed with high cholesterol (and all the salads as a result) when Aquarian1 's post had me at your's just seconds later.. Oddly ask and you shall receive for me there

Your niacin results are interesting.. how long was it before you saw a change?

My results came in at 183 down from 213 total cholesterol about 3 to 6 months into niacin. I can't remember the exact date I started taking it. At first I bought it and did nothing with it for at least 18 months, save for maybe 3 pills.



The flushing is what stops most people from this treasure. But the first pill/time will be the worst. And if one can make it through it's really the only side effect, I know about, in direct contrast to statins and the list as long as your arm. I will only flush these days if I take niacin (I never take less than 1000gm) and I'm super hungry but then it's not at all like it was the first time or the first few times of inconsistent use.



It's important to take small doses at first like 1/4 pill and work up from there. I take 5500gm/day. Morning 1000gm, mid-day 2000gm, night 2500gm. I pay ~$23.00 for 1000 500gm pills. One could easily make this last a year.



Niacin also has many other benefit like anti-cancer etc. The "no-flush" niacin is junk.

Thanks, that is good to know about the flush. I have read just read that low-dose aspirin 30 minutes before can help reduce the effect as one stages up. We are probably going to try for a kid within a year so she wants to get in top shape.

Cheers,

Among the documents unsealed was a February 2015 internal email exchange at the company about how to contain costs for a research paper. The plaintiff lawyers cited it to support their claim that the EPA report is unreliable, unlike a report by an international agency that classified glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.

Monsanto Loses Bid to Keep Glyphosate Off List of Carcinogens

“A less expensive/more palatable approach” is to rely on experts only for some areas of contention, while “we ghost-write the Exposure Tox & Genetox sections,” one Monsanto employee wrote to another.

The names of outside scientists could be listed on the publication, “but we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak,” according to the email, which goes to on say that’s how Monsanto handled the 2000 study.

The case is In re: Roundup Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2741, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Francisco).

In a recent study, people with Type 2 diabetes were asked to eat about 2-ounces of walnuts everyday, that's about 370 calories. After eight weeks, their blood vessel function improved significantly.

Why is this good news? Because endothelial cells, the thin layer of cells that lines the inside of blood vessels maybe one of the first places to go bad when people with diabetes start developing vascular disease. Walnuts help in other ways too, compared to other nuts, they have higher amounts of alpha-linolenic acid which may prevent plaque formation arteries.

Walnuts also have L-Arginine, an amino acid that relaxes blood vessels and controls blood pressure and what's more, the nut eaters in the study didn't gain any weight. Researchers say, all the proteins and fiber in walnuts may have help them eat less overall.

I'm still researching this - reducing iron build-up.

Blood letting or donating blood seems to be the easiest way - but if you suffer from hypotension (90/60) blood donating is potential dangerous and can cause a heart attack. Target serum ferritin levels= 20 and 80 ng/ml (but in Hopkins slides serum ferritin is not a good way to measure).

Read about heme-iron (such as in meat) inhibitors e.g Calcuim and do not take absorbtion enhancers e.g Vitamin C.
Also don't take iron supplements and by a multi without it

By the way another article says that iron in veg foods (non-heme) e.g 10mg in a bowl of oatmeal - can have a low absorption - eg. 2% so less dangerous than it might seem

-------------


A. https://www.healthtap.com/user_questions/17043-do-people-with-hypotension-donate-blood
"Absolutely not.Hypotension indicates that your body has low blood pressure from a variety of different reasons such as low blood volume, infectious or cardiac issues.If you donate blood, you are further depleting you blood pressure that can lead to dangerous events like fainting, heart attacks and veen death. "
Dr. Kevin Griffiths, Internal Medicine - Nephrology & Dialysis
Reply 2. In brief: They should not. Not recommended. Dr. Rick Koch, Internal Medicine - Cardiology

B. Hypotension is defined as "low blood pressure". Blood pressure is measured as two numbers and expressed as systolic blood pressure (sbp) / diastolic blood pressure (dbp). The sbp is the pressure that is generated when the heart squeezes. Dbp occurs when the heart relaxes. 120/70 is considered normal in adults. A systolic blood pressure of less than 90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or diastolic of less than 60 mm Hg is generally considered to be hypotension.[2][3] However, in practice, blood pressure is considered too low only if noticeable symptoms are present.

C. Just don’t make the mistake of going by what’s considered “normal.”2 In some labs, a level of 395 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) falls within the normal range, which is FAR too high for optimal health. In reality, you’re virtually guaranteed to develop disease at that level.

Ideally, your serum ferritin should be somewhere between 20 and 80 ng/ml, certainly no higher than that. As a general rule, somewhere between 40 and 60 ng/ml is the sweet spot for adult men and non-menstruating women.

Unfortunately, few besides children, premenopausal women who lose blood through monthly menstruation, and those with acute blood loss like a bleeding ulcer, have these ideal levels.

an adult male, you’ll want to donate blood two to three times a year once your levels are normal. If ferritin levels are over 200 ng/ml, a more aggressive phlebotomy schedule is recommended.

Although your local blood bank may not realize this, recent U.S. legislation allows all blood banks to perform therapeutic phlebotomy for hemochromatosis or iron overload. All you need is a doctor’s order.
Why Checking Your Iron Levels Is So Crucial for Optimal Health (1 in 3 People Has Too Much!) : Conscious Life News

D. Heme vs. Non-Heme Iron

There are two forms of iron found in food: heme and non-heme. Heme iron, which is in meat, fish and poultry, is absorbed two to three times more efficiently than non-heme iron. Whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables all contain non-heme iron. To lower levels of iron, limit the heme-containing foods you eat. Legumes and beans make good choices for alternative sources of protein because they're high in protein and the iron they contain is not easily absorbed. Your body may only absorb as little as 2 percent of the iron in legumes, such as lentils, black beans and split peas.

Non-Heme Inhibitors
The amount of non-heme iron your body absorbs is highly sensitive to foods that enhance or block it during digestion. Two plant-based substances, phytates and polyphenols, bind with non-heme iron and block its absorption during digestion. Phytates are found in whole grains, nuts, seeds, beans, soy products and tubers such as potatoes. Eating just a small amount of phytate may reduce non-heme iron absorption by 50 percent, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. You’ll get polyphenols from tea, coffee, cocoa and green leafy vegetables.

Heme Inhibitor
Calcium is the one substance that’s able to interfere with the absorption of heme iron. It won’t have an impact in small amounts, but consuming 300 to 600 milligrams is enough to stop some heme iron from entering your system. If you drink 1 cup of low-fat milk with your meal, its 314 milligrams of calcium are just enough to have an influence.

Absorption Enhancers
Don’t eat foods that are high in vitamin C at the same time you eat foods with iron because its one of the best enhancers of iron absorption. Foods that are rich in vitamin C may double or triple the bio-availability of iron, according to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations. Eating heme sources of iron at the same time as non-heme sources also increases the amount of iron absorbed from non-heme foods.

How to Lower Iron Levels With Food | Healthy Eating | SF Gate
----------------------------------


1,Patients who have anemia (low hemoglobin) and iron overload at the same time cannot tolerate phlebotomy (blood donation). These patients need iron chelation therapy to remove the iron.

The body cannot excrete iron, except in tiny amounts-about one milligram per day, which is sloughed off in skin or perspiration. Therefore the excess iron is trapped in the tissues of vital organs, such as the anterior pituitary, heart, liver, pancreas and joints. When the iron reaches toxic levels, damage can result in diseases such as diabetes, cirrhosis, osteoarthritis, heart attack, and hormone imbalances. Hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, infertility, impotence and sterility can result from these hormone imbalances. The patient can experience symptoms of chronic fatigue, mood swings, loss of sex drive, confusion, and memory loss. If not addressed, excess iron can result in complete organ failure and death.

iron-chelating agent such as desferrioxamine

The primary role of iron-chelation therapy is to prevent premature death from heart attack due to myocardial iron overload. Statistically 50% of patients with thalassemia major die of heart attack before the age of 35, primarily due to iron-related heart failure.

Side effects of IV iron chelation:

The urine can become orange colored, which is a harmless side effect. Immediate symptoms of adverse reaction to IV iron chelation therapy might include: visual disturbances, blurred vision, rash or hives, itching, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach or leg cramps, fever, rapid heart beat, hypotension (low blood pressure), dizziness, anaphylactic shock, and pain or swelling at site of intravenous entry. Long term problems might include kidney or liver damage, loss of hearing or cataracts.

Increased transferrin saturation (>50 %) leads to deposition of iron in
nonerythroid tissues such as the heart, liver and pancreas leading to:
Congestive heart failure
Hepatic fibrosis
Diabetes mellitus and other endocrinopathies
Increased susceptibility to infection
Increased transferrin saturation leads to the accumulation of
nontransferrin-bound iron (NBTI), labile or bound to other proteins, and
free radical formation.
The generation of free hydroxyl radicals causes tissue damage
through oxidative reactions with proteins, lipids and nuclei acids.

Iron's Dangers

In the 1960s the World Health Organization found that when iron supplements were given to anemic people in Africa, there was a great increase in the death rate from infectious diseases, especially malaria. Around the same time, research began to show that the regulation of iron is a central function of the immune system, and that this seems to have evolved because iron is a basic requirement for the survival and growth of cells of all types, including bacteria, parasites, and cancer. The pioneer researcher in the role of iron in immunity believed that an excess of dietary iron contributed to the development of leukemia and lymphatic cancers. Just like lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel and other heavy metals, stored iron produces destructive free radicals. The harmful effects of iron-produced free radicals are practically indistinguishable from those caused by exposure to X-rays and gamma rays; both accelerate the accumulation of age-pigment and other signs of aging. Excess iron is a crucial element in the transformation of stress into tissue damage by free radicals.

For about 50 years, it has been known that blood transfusions damage immunity, and excess iron has been suspected to be one of the causes for this. People who regularly donate blood, on the other hand, have often been found to be healthier than non-donors, and healthier than they were before they began donating.

In one of Hans Selye's pioneering studies, he found that he could experimentally produce a form of scleroderma (hardening of the skin) in animals by administering large doses of iron, followed by a minor stress. He could prevent the development of the condition by giving the animals large doses of vitamin E, suggesting that the condition was produced by iron's oxidative actions.

Excess iron's role in infectious diseases is now well established, and many recent studies show that it is involved in degenerative brain diseases, such as Parkinson's, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), Huntington's chorea, and Alzheimer's disease. Iron is now believed to have a role in skin aging, atherosclerosis, and cataracts of the lenses of the eyes, largely through its formation of the "age pigment."

Q: How does excess iron accelerate our aging process?

During aging, our tissues tend to store an excess of iron. There is a remarkably close association between the amount of iron stored in our tissues and the risk of death from cancer, heart disease, or from all causes. This relationship between iron and death rate exists even during childhood, but the curve is downward until the age of 12, and then it rises steadily until death. The shape of this curve, representing the iron burden, is amazingly similar to the curves representing the rate of death in general, and the rate of death from cancer. There is no other relationship in biology that I know of that has this peculiar shape, with its minimum at the age of 12, and its maximum in old age at the time of death.

One of the major lines of aging research, going back to the early part of this century, was based on the accumulation of a brown material in the tissues known as "age-pigment." The technical name for this material, "lipofuscin," means "fatty brown stuff." In the 1960s, the "free radical theory" of aging was introduced by Denham Harman, and this theory has converged with the age-pigment theory, since we now know that the age-pigment is an oxidized mass of unsaturated fat and iron, formed by uncontrolled free radicals. Until a few years ago, these ideas were accepted by only a few researchers, but now practically every doctor in the country accepts that free radicals are important in the aging process. A nutrition researcher in San Diego suspected that the life-extending effects of calorie restriction might be the result of a decreased intake of toxins. He removed the toxic heavy metals from foods, and found that the animals which ate a normal amount of food lived as long as the semi-starved animals. Recently, the iron content of food has been identified as the major life-shortening factor, rather than the calories. [Choi and Yu, Age vol. 17, page 93, 1994.]

...
Q: How does copper help us?

Copper is the crucial element for producing the color in hair and skin, for maintaining the elasticity of skin and blood vessels, for protecting against certain types of free radical, and especially for allowing us to use oxygen properly for the production of biological energy. It is also necessary for the normal functioning of certain nerve cells (substantia nigra) whose degeneration is involved in Parkinson's disease. The shape and texture of hair, as well as its color, can change in a copper deficiency. Too much iron can block our absorption of copper, and too little copper makes us store too much iron. With aging, our tissues lose copper as they store excess iron. Because of those changes, we need more vitamin E as we age.

Herbal treatment options are also effective. Dandelion, wild hyssop and milk thistle supplements help regulate the body’s systems and minimize iron storage.

Drink green tea, as it is a powerful chelator that works to remove iron from the body.

Calcium, vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese and black tea are also effective treatment options. Additionally, individuals affected by hemochromatosis should avoid vitamin C supplements.

Zinc also has antioxidant properties, meaning it helps protect cells in the body from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals may contribute to the aging process, as well as the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.

Your body doesn't need a large amount of zinc. The recommended daily allowance for adults is 8 - 11 mg. It’s common to have slightly low levels of zinc, but taking a multivitamin, plus eating a healthy diet, should give you all the zinc you need.

Zinc reduces the amount of copper your body absorbs, and high doses of zinc can cause a copper deficiency. For that reason, many doctors recommend that you take 2 mg of copper along with a zinc supplement.

-----------------
You should take zinc with water or juice. If zinc causes stomach upset, it can be taken with meals. Don't take zinc at the same time as iron or calcium supplements. [so zinc blocks iron absorption?? - my question]

A strong relationship exists between zinc and copper. Too much of one can cause a deficiency in the other. If you take zinc, including zinc in a multivitamin, you should also take copper.

Adult

Men 19 years and older: 11 mg (RDA)
Women 19 years and older: 8 mg (RDA)
Pregnant women 14 - 18 years: 12 mg (RDA)
Pregnant women 19 years and older: 11 mg (RDA)
Breastfeeding women 14 - 18 years: 13 mg (RDA)
Breastfeeding women 19 years and older: 12 mg (RDA)

...
Taking 100 mg of zinc daily, or taking supplemental zinc for 10 years or longer, has been linked with a doubling of the risk developing prostate cancer in men.

---------
Possible Interactions

If you are being treated with any of the following medications, you should not use zinc without first talking to your health care provider.

Amiloride (Midamor) -- Amiloride is a potassium-sparing diuretic (water pill) that may increase the levels of zinc in your blood. Do not take zinc supplements if you take amiloride.

Blood pressure medications, ACE Inhibitors -- A class of medications called ACE inhibitors, used to treat high blood pressure, may decrease the levels of zinc in your blood. ACE inhibitors include:

Benazepril (Lotensin)
Captopril (Capoten)
Enalapril (Vasotec)
Fosinopril (Monopril)
Lisinopril (Zestril)
Moexipril (Univasc)
Perindopril (Aceon)
Quinapril (Accupril)
Ramipril (Altace)
Trandolapril (Mavik)

Antibiotics -- Zinc may decrease your body's absorption of two kinds of antibiotics, quinolones and tetracyclines. These include:

Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)
Gatifloxacin (Tequin)
Levofloxacin (Levaquin)
Moxifloxacin (Avelox)
Norfloxacin (Noroxin)
Ofloxacin (Floxin)
Demeclocycline (Declomycin)
Minocycline (Minocin)
Tetracycline

However, doxycycline (Vibramycin) does not seem to interact with zinc.

Cisplatin (Platinol-AQ) -- This drug, used for chemotherapy to treat some types of cancers, may cause more zinc to be lost in your urine. If you are undergoing chemotherapy, do not take zinc or any other supplement without talking to your oncologist.

Deferoxamine (Desferal) -- This medication, used to remove excess iron from the blood, also increases the amount of zinc that is lost in urine.

Immunosuppressant medications -- Since zinc may make the immune system stronger, it should not be taken with corticosteroids (such as prednisone), cyclosporine, or other medications intended to suppress the immune system.

Penicillamine -- This medication, used to treat Wilson's disease (where excess copper builds up in the brain, liver, kidney, and eyes) and rheumatoid arthritis, decreases the levels of zinc in your blood.

Thiazide diuretics (water pills) -- These medications lower the amount of zinc in your blood by increasing the amount of zinc that is passed in your urine. If you take thiazide diuretics, your doctor will monitor levels of zinc and other important minerals in your blood:

Chlorothiazide (Diuril)
Chlorthalidone (Hygroton)

Phytic acid (IP6), derived as an extract from rice bran, is the most
potent natural iron chelator and has strong antibiotic and antioxidant
action. [Free Radical Biology Medicine, Volume 8, 1990; Journal
Biological Chemistry, August 25, 1987] IP6 has been found to have
similar | iron-chelating properties as desferrioxamine, a drug
commonly used to kill germs, tumor cells or to remove undesirable minerals from
the body. [Biochemistry Journal, September 15, 1993] IP6 rice bran
extract (2000-4000 mg) should be taken in between meals with filtered
or bottled water only (no juice).[/shadow]

Has anybody used IP6 for Iron Chelation?

Following sites indicates that it is a natural Iron Chelator

https://www.webvitamins.com/Nutrient.aspx?id=963

----
A quick search finds plenty of articles about inositol hexaphosphate, or IP6, and the iron chelating properties are often mentioned. It has been mentioned as a possible weapon against cancer because it inhibits iron in tumors. It has been studied and there is some evidence that it does bind iron. To what extent and whether this could be useful to thals, I don't know, but inositol hexaphosphate is a very safe supplement, even in high doses, if anyone wants to try it out. I saw it for sale online in the US at rather low prices and I cannot think of a single reason why anyone shouldn't try it and see if it has any effect in lowering iron in their bodies.

Thank you friends for a very quick reply.
I purchased Cell forte with IP6 (Jerrows Formula) from Vitamin Shoppe.
I am collecting his Serrun Ferritin report today.

For anyone with access to US mail order, Puritan.com has a sale going right now and you can get IP-6 INOSITOL HEXAPHOSPHATE Capsules at a pretty good price.

Phytic acid (IP6) as natural Iron Chelator

=================================

Abstract

Emerging evidence suggests that dietary rice bran may exert beneficial effects against several types of cancer, such as breast, lung, liver, and colorectal cancer. The chemopreventive potential has been related to the bioactive phytochemicals present in the bran portion of the rice such as ferulic acid, tricin, β-sitosterol, γ-oryzanol, tocotrienols/tocopherols, and phytic acid. Studies have shown that the anticancer effects of the rice bran–derived bioactive components are mediated through their ability to induce apoptosis, inhibit cell proliferation, and alter cell cycle progression in malignant cells. Rice bran bioactive components protect against tissue damage through the scavenging of free radicals and the blocking of chronic inflammatory responses. Rice bran phytochemicals have also been shown to activate anticancer immune responses as well as affecting the colonic tumor microenvironment in favor of enhanced colorectal cancer chemoprevention. This is accomplished through the modulation of gut microflora communities and the regulation of carcinogen-metabolizing enzymes. In addition, the low cost of rice production and the accessibility of rice bran make it an appealing candidate for global dietary chemoprevention. Therefore, the establishment of dietary rice bran as a practical food-derived chemopreventive agent has the potential to have a significant impact on cancer prevention for the global population.

Abstract

Solid-liquid extraction of phytic acid (PA) from rice bran was optimized by the maximization of the yield using response surface methodology. A Box-Behnken design was used to monitor the effects of three processing parameters of extraction on the PA yield, including ratio of acid solution to raw material (mL/g), hydrochloric acid concentration (mol/L), and extraction time (h). The results showed that the optimal conditions were acid solution/raw material of 8.5:1 (mL/g), HCl concentration 0.62 mol/L and extraction time 5.5 h. Validation tests indicated that the actual yield of PA was (2.15 ± 0.02)% with RSD = 1.92% (n = 5) under the optimized conditions, which was in good agreement with predicted yield. Antioxidant assays suggested that the extracted PA had weaker DPPH, hydroxyl and superoxide free-radical-scavenging capabilities than vitamin C at the same concentration of 0.5 mg/mL.

Upon closer inspection, many health-promoting practices inadvertently control iron. For example, taking an aspirin a day to prevent heart attacks and strokes causes blood loss via the digestive tract on the order of about a tablespoon per day. This results in iron loss. [7] Raymond Hohl, M.D., an assistant professor of internal medicine and pharmacology at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, says even chronic use of a baby aspirin may help to control iron and in some cases can induce iron-deficiency anemia. [8] Aspirin also appears to increase the production of ferritin, an iron-binding protein that prevents iron from inducing oxidation. [9] By exercising, a person loses about 1 mg of iron through sweat. [10] Fasting and vegetarian diets, both of which promote longevity in animals and humans, limit iron consumption because red meat contains the highly absorbable heme iron. Whether or not related to iron consumption, restricting red meat consumption has been shown in various studies to reduce the risk of colon cancer. [11]

Normal Iron Regulation

In healthy individuals there is little if any unbound iron circulating in the blood. In all disease states, however, unbound iron (also called free iron) is released at sites of inflammation and can spark uncontrolled oxidation. [12] Fortunately, there are numerous automatic mechanisms in the body that help to control iron, many by chelation—compounds that bind to a toxic substance (such as iron) and render it nontoxic or nonactive. Albumin, a simple protein found in blood, acts as a chelator by loosely binding to iron. [13] Ferritin, produced in the liver, is another iron-binding protein. [14] Transferrin is a protein that chelates iron and totes it back to the liver, where it is metabolized and excreted. [15] The liver produces lactoferrin, another iron chelator, when challenged by infectious agents. [16] This is important because pathogenic organisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi require iron for growth. Furthermore, as iron stores increase, the gastric absorption of iron decreases. So the body employs numerous mechanisms to control iron that are activated when threatened by disease. However, these defensive mechanisms can be overwhelmed.

Blood tests for iron levels (i.e., hemoglobin and ferritin levels are checked for transferrin saturation percentages) are often useful, but the results of these tests are confounded in states of prolonged inflammation or disease. [17] A skilled hematologist is often the best professional from whom to obtain personal information concerning blood iron levels.

Differentiating between anemia and iron overload can be difficult because both conditions cause fatigue. One study at the Department of Medicine, University of Western Ontario in Canada, found that iron overload can produce a wide range of symptoms, such as joint pain (particularly hip), unexplained gastric pain, frequent infections, skin bronzing, elevated liver enzymes, cessation of menstruation, hair loss and heart flutters (fibrillation). Yet, of 410 iron-overload patients, 27 percent experienced no symptoms whatsoever. [18] Common symptoms of iron-deficiency anemia are lowered resistance to infections, fainting, breath holding, mental fatigue, sleepiness, cold hands and feet, and cravings for ice, meat or tomatoes, all which are more likely to occur among women. [19]

Humans absorb only a fraction of the iron they consume, but there are many controlling factors. [20] Iron absorption rates from food vary widely, from less than 1 percent to nearly 100 percent. [21] Cooks who use iron or stainless steel pots increase the amount of iron they consume. [22] Generally, iron in plant foods is not as well absorbed as iron from meat: Only 5 percent of iron in plant foods is available, vs. 30 to 50 percent of iron from meat. [23] Olive oil and spices such as anise, caraway, cumin, licorice and mint promote iron absorption, [24] while antacids, eggs and soy reduce availability. [25] Since dairy products contain lactoferrin, milk also inhibits the absorption of iron. [26] Moderate alcohol consumption is unlikely to pose a problem with iron absorption, but excessive amounts of alcohol is associated with iron overload, particularly in adult males. [27]

Vitamin C also increases iron absorption. [28] However, there is no evidence that vitamin C leads to iron overload. Thus vitamin C should not be avoided by meat-eaters for this reason, since studies show high-dose vitamin C supplements are associated with a decreased risk for heart disease, cancer, cataracts and other disorders. [29] A vegetarian diet does not generally cause iron-deficiency anemia because there is more vitamin C in plant-food diets, which enhances absorption. [30]

A 1982 human study was conducted to assess the effect of various drinks on iron absorption. A subject ate a standard meal of a hamburger, string beans, mashed potatoes and water. When green tea was drunk instead of water, iron absorption was reduced by 62 percent. Coffee reduced iron absorption by 35 percent, whereas orange juice (as a source of vitamin C) increased absorption by 85 percent. Contrary to other studies, milk and beer had no significant effect. [31]

Bioflavonoids (found in berries, coffee, green tea, pine bark, quercetin and the rind of citrus fruits, particularly blueberry, cranberry, elderberry and grape seed) and phytic acid (a component of whole grains and seeds such as sesame) bind to iron and other minerals in the gastric tract and help to limit iron availability. If bioflavonoids and phytic acid haven't bound to minerals in the digestive tract they will get into the bloodstream, where they can bind to free iron, acting as blood-cleansing iron chelators. Therefore, maximum iron chelation in the blood circulation is achieved when these iron binders are consumed apart from meals.

Phytic acid—also called inositol hexaphosphate, or IP6—is comprised of six phosphorus molecules and one molecule of inositol. It has been mistakenly described for decades as an "anti-nutrient" because it impairs mineral absorption. However, in the 1980s food biochemist Ernst Graf, Ph.D., began to tout phytic acid for its beneficial antioxidant properties achieved through mineral chelation. [32]

Phytic acid in foods or bran should be distinguished from supplemental phytic acid, which is derived from rice bran extract.

In foods, phytic acid binds to iron and other minerals in the digestive tract and may interfere with mineral absorption.


As a purified extract of rice bran, taken between meals so it will not bind to minerals in the digestive tract, phytic acid is readily absorbed into the bloodstream, where it acts as a potent mineral chelator. [33] Phytic acid binds to any free iron or other minerals (even heavy metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium) in the blood, which are then eliminated through the kidneys. Phytic acid removes only excess or unbound minerals, not mineral ions already attached to proteins.

Phytic acid is such a potent—but safe—iron and mineral chelator that it may someday replace intravenous chelation therapy such as the mineral-chelator EDTA or iron-binding drugs such as desferrioxamine (Desferal). Because of its ability to bind to iron and block iron-driven hydroxyl radical generation (water-based) as well as suppress lipid peroxidation (fat-based), phytic acid has been used successfully as an antioxidant food preservative. [34]

Iron-rich foods such as red meat and molasses may prevent anemia and build strength during the growing years but in adulthood may lead to iron overload among men and postmenopausal women. Those individuals who learn how to achieve iron balance will maintain the most desirable state of health throughout life.

Scientists found that heating up vegetable oils led to the release of high concentrations of chemicals called aldehydes, which have been linked to illnesses including cancer, heart disease and dementia. Martin Grootveld, a professor of bioanalytical chemistry and chemical pathology, said that his research showed “a typical meal of fish and chips”, fried in vegetable oil, contained as much as 100 to 200 times more toxic aldehydes than the safe daily limit set by the World Health Organisation.. “If you eat too much corn oil or sunflower oil, the brain is absorbing too much omega 6, and that effectively forces out omega 3,” said Prof Stein. “I believe the lack of omega 3 is a powerful contributory factor to such problems as increasing mental health issues and other problems such as dyslexia.”

On the other hand, coconut oil is a source of myristic acid, an omega-5 fatty acid that has been found to be associated with increased breast cancer risk. One population study in the Philippines (which has a high rate of breast cancer compared to other Asian countries) found a strong positive association between boiling food in coconut milk and the risk of breast cancer. Another study reported that women in Crete with high levels of myristic acid in their fat tissue were at higher risk of breast cancer than women with low levels. In addition, high intake of saturated fat has been linked in several studies to increased breast density, a risk factor for breast cancer and recurrence.
Additional comments

While it is clear that coconut oil is preferable to corn oil for breast cancer patients, survivors and those at high risk for breast cancer, canola oil or olive oil are still better choices. Based on the available evidence, coconut meat and coconut milk can be enjoyed in moderation. However, coconut milk brands listing carrageenan (a breast carcinogen) as an ingredient should be avoided. In addition, food cooked in coconut milk (such as some yellow curries) should be limited or avoided.

Virgin coconut oil has been shown to have antifungal, and antioxidant properties (virgin coconut oil is produced using chilling and fermentation whereas commercial coconut oil is refined, bleached and deodorized). The antioxidant capacity of virgin coconut oil appears to be due to phenolic compounds, including ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid. Coconut has been shown to greatly reduce the incidence and number of colon tumors when added to the diet of rats treated with a carcinogen known to cause colon cancer.

Coconut Oil Kills >93% of Colon Cancer Cells In Vivo

In this newly published lab study, lauric acid (coconut oil is about 50% lauric acid) killed over 93% of human colon cancer cells (Caco-2) after 48 hours of treatment. Intriguingly, the lauric acid poisoned the cancer cells by simultaneously unleashing profound oxidative stress while strongly reducing their levels of glutathione (which is exactly what the cancer cells needed to protect themselves from the increased oxidative stress).

While we are just now discovering coconut oil’s full anti-cancer potential, its many health benefits have already been well established through medical research. It naturally kills multiple viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. It aids digestion and liver metabolism, reduces inflammation, and promotes healthier skin and faster wound healing when applied topically.

Indeed, many studies have actually found a higher risk of heart disease associated with statin use. One of the new studies, conducted by researchers from Kinjo Gakuin University in Nagoya, Japan, claims to have uncovered the mechanism by which statins may actually directly cause hardening of the arteries and heart disease.

It's because statins deplete coenzyme Q10, which the mitochondria in your body need in order to produce ATP, which your body uses for energy. A lack of ATP leads to cellular fatigue and degeneration. Because the heart is such a high-energy muscle (as it must pump at all times), the effects are felt there more strongly than in other muscles.

In addition, statins also deplete a protein known as heme A, which transports both iron and oxygen to the heart. This further cuts off the heart's energy supply.

The researchers note that statins also prevent the body from synthesizing vitamin K2, a vitamin that protects the arteries from forming the plaques that lead to heart disease. Finally, they block selenoproteins including glutathione peroxidase, which protects the tissue of muscles (including the heart) from oxidation damage caused by free radicals.

"An impairment of selenoprotein biosynthesis may be a factor in congestive heart failure, reminiscent of the dilated cardiomyopathies seen with selenium deficiency," the researchers wrote.

The Health Dangers of Carrageenan

The most recent medical paper we have on carrageenan’s carcinogenicity suggests that carrageenan consumption increases the risk for certain cancers. [1] It is also suggested that carrageenan has negative effects on the gastrointestinal tract, potentially contributing to issues such as irritable bowel disease (IBD) and colitis.

--------
How to Avoid Carrageenan

One of the best ways you can avoid carrageenan is to avoid dairy-free milk products, this includes some brands of almond milk. While you can definitely make your own using fresh almonds and water, try to avoid purchasing store bought because these typically contain some type of thickening agent, like carrageenan. Simply look at the ingredients labels of your foods to make sure they’re free from the additive. Also, if you purchase gluten-free goods, make sure it doesn’t contain the ingredient, either. Many gluten-free baked goods will contain carrageenan as a binding agent to replace the gluten, and these products may also contain xanthan gum and guar gum. These gums may also cause gut irritation in sensitive individuals.

[summary
don't take/eat if you take high blood pressure medication have low pressure, have a sensitive gut]

------------
Bleeding disorders: Carrageenan might slow blood clotting and increase bleeding. In theory, carrageenan might make bleeding disorders worse.

Low blood pressure: Carrageenan might lower blood pressure. In theory, taking carrageenan might make blood pressure become too low in people with low blood pressure.

Surgery: Carrageenan might slow blood clotting and lower blood pressure in some people. In theory, carrageenan might increase the risk for bleeding and interfere with blood pressure control during surgical procedures. Stop using carrageenan at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

CARRAGEENAN Interactions What is this?

Moderate Interaction Be cautious with this combination

Medications for high blood pressure (Antihypertensive drugs) interacts with CARRAGEENAN

Carrageenan seems to decrease blood pressure. Taking carrageenan along with medications for high blood pressure might cause your blood pressure to go too low.
Some medications for high blood pressure include captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), diltiazem (Cardizem), Amlodipine (Norvasc), hydrochlorothiazide (HydroDiuril), furosemide (Lasix), and many others.
Medications taken by mouth (Oral drugs) interacts with CARRAGEENAN

Carrageenan is a thick gel. Carrageenan can stick to medications in the stomach and intestines. Taking carrageenan at the same time as medications that you take by mouth can decrease how much medication your body absorbs, and decrease the effectiveness of your medication. To prevent this interaction, take carrageenan at least one hour after medications you take by mouth.
Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) interacts with CARRAGEENAN

Carrageenan might slow blood clotting. Taking carrageenan along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding.
Some medications that slow blood clotting include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, others), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, warfarin (Coumadin), and others.

When it comes to the dangers of regularly drinking soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages, the science is clear. It rots your teeth, makes you fat, and puts you at a higher risk of diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. The list goes on and on—just ask your doctor.

When it comes to diet soda, the science has been less solid. It will lower your overall sugar consumption to switch from Coke to Diet Coke, but it might cause other problems. Artificial sweeteners have been associated with—but not shown to necessarily cause—weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease.

On Thursday, two studies by the same group of researchers gave soda drinkers—both diet and regular—a whole new reason to drop the habit entirely.

The first, published in the medical journal Stroke, found that consumption of artificially sweetened beverages was associated with a higher risk of stroke and dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. The second, published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia, found that higher consumption of sugary beverages was associated with markers for pre-clinical Alzheimer’s disease.

Led by researchers at Boston University School of Medicine, the authors of the Stroke study conducted a review of data collected through the Framingham Heart Study, a multi-decade observational review that began with more than 5,000 volunteer participants in 1948 and has included their offspring since 1971 and their grandchildren since 2002. The FHS entailed nine examination cycles held approximately every four years; participants logged beverage intake through questionnaires that surveyed their diets over the previous 12 months. In these studies, the researchers looked at the seventh cycle for the offspring, from 1998 to 2001, and the second cycle for the grandchildren, from 2008 to 2011.

In the study cited in Alzheimer’s & Dementia, the researchers found that higher consumption of sugary beverages was associated with a pattern consistent with preclinical Alzheimer’s, including smaller total brain volume and poorer episodic memory. The authors called the findings “striking” because they were found in a middle-aged sample and withstood statistical adjustment for such factors as physical activity and total caloric intake. The results align with earlier research done with smaller samples, including one with 737 middle-aged participants in the Boston Puerto Rican Health Study, which found that higher sugar intake was cross-sectionally associated with Alzheimer’s-like behavioral patterns.

The Alzheimer’s & Dementia study notes its limitations, including that it doesn’t establish causality, the homogenous population sample didn’t include minorities, and questionnaire-based consumption data are inherently unreliable.

Responded William Dermody Jr., vice president of policy at the American Beverage Association, the chief lobby for soda makers: “The Alzheimer’s Association points out that the greatest risk factors for Alzheimer’s are increasing age, family history of Alzheimer’s, and genetics—not sugar intake, from any source.”

The Stroke study, meanwhile, found an association with artificially sweetened beverages and stroke and dementia, while not finding a similar association for consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, an observation the authors characterized as “intriguing.” An editorial accompanying the study noted this finding—and that it contradicted other studies that found the opposite. This study, the authors noted, has the same limitations as the Alzheimer’s & Dementia analysis, as well as another important one: The association could be a case of reverse causality, “whereby sicker individuals consume diet beverages as a means of negating a further deterioration of health.”

That concern is based on the way diabetes status partially mediated the association between artificially sweetened beverage consumption and dementia. In other words, having diabetes may be more of a risk factor for dementia than consuming artificially sweetened beverages is. The relationships among beverage consumption, diabetes, and dementia remain unclear.

All this, said Dean M. Hartley, director of Science Initiatives at the Alzheimer’s Association, points to an important reminder: Correlation doesn’t necessarily mean causation. Dermody of the American Beverage Association emphasized this point: “The authors of this study acknowledge that their conclusions do not—and cannot—prove cause and effect.”

Still, Hartley said, this study provides an important starting point for further studies. “Many of our first understandings of a disease come from associations,” he said. “It’s why it’s critical to get more funding at a national level.” The Alzheimer’s Association has been advocating increased research funding, including a $400 million boost for 2017 through the National Institutes of Health, currently pending before Congress, and at least another $414 million for 2018. (The Trump administration budget proposal calls for a $5.8 billion cut (PDF) to the NIH for 2018, which is about 20 percent.)

Hartley also recommends the association’s 10 Ways to Love Your Brain for proactive steps towards brain health, including exercise, a healthy diet, and keeping up education, and he advises everyone to speak with physicians about their specific health conditions. Still, when it comes to soda—diet or regular—the safest course is to skip it. “I think they’re both bad,” he said. “Pure water is always a very good thing.”

The Environmental Working Group singled out produce with the highest loads of pesticide residue, calling them the “Dirty Dozen” on its “2017 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce.” The list includes strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, grapes, celery, tomatoes, sweet bell peppers and potatoes. See the full list, which includes 50 fruits and vegetables. The “Clean Fifteen,” on the other hand, were: sweet corn, avocados, pineapples, cabbage, onions, frozen sweet peas, papayas, asparagus, mangos, eggplant, honeydew melon, kiwi, cantaloupe, cauliflower and grapefruit.

A single sample of strawberries had 20 different pesticides.

Pesticides are chemicals used on crops .. considered toxic, according to research from Penn State
Potential Health Effects of Pesticides ? Pesticide Education ? Penn State Extension

people who consumed organic over conventionally grown produce had fewer pesticides found in their urine samples. Organic farming sales hit record highs in 2015, up 11% from the previous year at $43.3 billion, and is now more profitable than traditional farming.

In the market watch article there is a lie
"There’s no scientific evidence that there are more health benefits to eating organic fruits and vegetables,

this is absolutely untrue and a wonderful example of mainstreet lying

What is true is that
"There is no scientific evidence that poison laden food can be consumed without long term health consequences."

The day will soon come when diseases such as cancer in humans will be shown to be linked to these poisons as is already the case for birds, fish and other animals.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a warning about a particularly nasty gastrointestinal illness. The alert concerns a parasitic protozoa from the Cryptosporidium family (also known as “crypto”). It can cause “profuse, watery diarrhea that can last up to two to three weeks” and can lead to life-threatening wasting and “malabsorption” in people whose immune system is compromised.

Cryptosporidium has emerged as the leading cause of recreational water–associated outbreaks, “particularly those associated with aquatic facilities.” That includes swimming pools, water parks, water playgrounds, hot tubs and spas. More than half of 24 states that voluntarily report such data said they detected cryptosporidiosis outbreaks in 2016 at water parks or swimming pools. Since 2004, the annual incidence of “cryptosporidiosiss” has increased threefold in the U.S.

Here’s the bad news for people who like to splash around in swimming pools, particularly in the summertime. Outbreaks are due in part to the parasite’s “extreme chlorine tolerance.” Free available chlorine reduces most infectious pathogens within minutes to CDC-recommended concentrations. However, Cryptosporidium can survive for days in such chlorinated water and remains a leading cause of waterborne disease among humans in the U.S., the CDC says.

Summer vacations can make you sick in other ways too, especially when taking a flight. Iced water is another culprit. As this Reddit user who identified as a flight attendant wrote in March: “Don’t get ice in your drink …The ice is put in a tray with a scoop and the trays don’t get cleaned very often. Every surface on the plane is touched by hundreds of people daily and not often disinfected. We don’t have the opportunity to wash our hands at all during the beverage service.”

Bacteria can spread fast on flights. Cryptosporidium aside, the equally sinister sounding Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) lasted longest (168 hours) on material from a seat-back pocket while the bacteria Escherichia coli O157:H7 (also known as E.coli, which can cause kidney problems) survived 96 hours on the material from the armrest of planes, according to research presented to the American Society for Microbiology in 2014.

Visiting New York this summer? Many people don’t often think about subway turnstiles and bus ticket machines that are arguably touched by even more people, according to Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona. Commuters are 6 times more likely to develop an acute respiratory infection if they traveled recently by bus or tram, according to a 2011 study by the University of Nottingham in the U.K. and published in “BMC Journal of Infectious Diseases.”

MRSA is prevalent in hospitals, prisons, and nursing homes, where people with open wounds, invasive devices such as catheters, and weakened immune systems are at greater risk of nosocomial infection (hospital-acquired infection). MRSA began as a hospital-acquired infection, but has developed limited endemic status and is now community-acquired as well as livestock-acquired. The terms HA-MRSA (healthcare-associated or hospital-acquired MRSA), CA-MRSA (community-associated MRSA) and LA-MRSA (livestock-associated) reflect this distinction.

Like all Staphylococcus aureus (usually S. aureus but abbreviated SA at times), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a gram-positive, spherical (coccus) bacterium that is about 1 micron in diameter. It does not form spores and it is non-motile. It forms grape-like clusters or chains.[2]:390

After 72 hours, MRSA can take hold in human tissues and eventually become resistant to treatment. The initial presentation of MRSA is small red bumps that resemble pimples, spider bites, or boils; they may be accompanied by fever and, occasionally, rashes. Within a few days, the bumps become larger and more painful; they eventually open into deep, pus-filled boils About 75 percent of CA-MRSA infections are localized to skin and soft tissue and usually can be treated effectively.[6]

Risk factors

Some of the populations at risk:

People with indwelling implants, prostheses, drains, and catheters[1][7]
People who are frequently in crowded places, especially with shared equipment and skin-to-skin contact[8]
People with weak immune systems (HIV/AIDS, lupus, or cancer sufferers; transplant recipients, severe asthmatics, etc.)
Diabetics[9][1]
Intravenous drug users[10][11]
Users of quinolone antibiotics[12][7]
The elderly[13][7]
School children sharing sports and other equipment.
College students living in dormitories[8]
People staying or working in a health care facility for an extended period of time[8][7]
People who spend time in coastal waters where MRSA is present, such as some beaches in Florida and the west coast of the United States[14][15]
People who spend time in confined spaces with other people, including occupants of homeless shelters, prison inmates, military recruits in basic training,[16][17]
Veterinarians, livestock handlers, and pet owners[18]
Those that ingest unpasteurized milk[19]
Those who are immunocompromised and also colonized[20]:249
Those with Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease[7]
Those who had thoracic surgery.[7]

As many as 22% of those infected with MRSA do not have any discernable risk factors.[3]:637

Hospitalized people

People who are hospitalized, including the elderly, are often immunocompromised and susceptibility to infection of all kinds, including MRSA; when the infection is by MRSA this is called healthcare-associated or hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (HA-MRSA).[1][21][22][7]

Surgical as well as nonsurgical wounds can be infected with HA-MRSA.[1][21][7] Surgical site infections (SSI) occur on the skin surface but can spread to internal organs and blood to cause sepsis.[1] Transmission occurs between healthcare providers and patients. This is because some providers may inconsistently neglect to perform hand-washing between examinations.[12][23]

People in nursing homes are at at risk for all the reasons above, further complicated by the generally weaker immune systems of the elderly or other residents in need of such care.[13][24]

Children

MRSA is becoming a critical problem in pediatric settings;[35] recent studies found 4.6% of patients in U.S. health-care facilities, (presumably) including hospital nurseries,[36] were infected or colonized with MRSA.[37] Children (and adults, as well) who come in contact with day-care centers,[19] playgrounds, locker rooms, camps, dormitories, classrooms and other school settings, and gyms and workout facilities are at higher risk of getting MRSA. Parents should be especially cautious of children who participate in activities where sports equipment is shared, such as football helmets and uniforms.[38]

In the UK, the most common strains of MRSA are EMRSA15 and EMRSA16.[55] EMRSA16 has been found to be identical to the ST36:USA200 strain, which circulates in the United States, and to carry the SCCmec type II, enterotoxin A and toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 genes.[56]

Community-acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) strains emerged in late 1990 to 2000, infecting healthy people who had not been in contact with health care facilities.[58]
In the United States, most cases of CA-MRSA are caused by a CC8 strain designated ST8:USA300, which carries SCCmec type IV, Panton–Valentine leukocidin, PSM-alpha and enterotoxins Q and K,[56] and ST1:USA400.[60] The ST8:USA300 strain results in skin infections, necrotizing fasciitis and toxic shock syndrome, whereas the ST1:USA400 strain results in necrotizing pneumonia and pulmonary sepsis.[54]

Excluding medical facilities, current US guidance does not require workers with MRSA infections to be routinely excluded from the general workplace.[70]

Worldwide, an estimated 2 billion people carry some form of S. aureus; of these, up to 53 million (2.7% of carriers) are thought to carry MRSA.[78] In the United States, 95 million carry S. aureus in their noses; of these, 2.5 million (2.6% of carriers) carry MRSA.[79]

Care should be taken when trying to drain boils, as disruption of surrounding tissue can lead to larger infections, or even infection of the blood stream (often with fatal consequences).[81]

As shown in an animal study with diabetic mice, the topical application of a mixture of sugar (70%) and 3% povidone-iodine paste is an effective agent for the treatment of diabetic ulcers with MRSA infection.[82]

In the hospital setting toilet seats are a common vector for infection, and wiping seats clean before and/or after use can help to prevent the spread of MRSA. Door handles, faucets, light switches, etc. can be disinfected regularly with disinfectant wipes.[72] Spray disinfectants can be used on upholstery. Carpets can be washed with disinfectant, and hardwood floors can be scrubbed with diluted tea tree oil (e.g. Melaleuca). Laundry soap containing tea tree oil may be effective at decontaminating clothing and bedding, especially if hot water and heavy soil cycles are used, however tea tree oil may cause a rash which MRSA can re-colonize. Alcohol-based sanitizers can be placed near bedsides, near sitting areas, in vehicles etc. to encourage their use.

Some advocate regulations on the use of antibiotics in animal food to prevent the emergence of drug resistant strains of MRSA.[27] MRSA is established in animals.[19]

Treatment is urgent and delays can be fatal.[20]:328 The location and history related to the infection determines the treatment. The route of administration of an antibiotic varies. Antibiotics effective against MRSA can be given by IV, oral, or a combination of both and depends on the specific circumstances and patient characteristics.[6] The use of concurrent treatment with vancomycin other beta-lactam agents may have a synergistic effect.[3]:637

Several newly discovered strains of MRSA show antibiotic resistance even to vancomycin and teicoplanin. These new strains of the MRSA bacterium have been dubbed vancomycin intermediate-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VISA).[94] [95] Linezolid, quinupristin/dalfopristin, daptomycin, ceftaroline, and tigecycline are used to treat more severe infections that do not respond to glycopeptides such as vancomycin.[96] Current guidelines recommend daptomycin for VISA bloodstream infections and endocarditis.[6]

Skin and soft-tissue infections: In skin abscesses, the primary treatment recommended is removal of dead tissue, incision and drainage. More data is needed to determine the effectiveness of specific antibiotics therapy in SSIs.[6] Examples of soft tissue infections from MRSA include: ulcers, impetigo, abscesses, and surgical site infections.[87]

Children: In skin infections and in secondary infection sites topical mupirocin is used successfully. For bacteremia and endocarditis, vancomycin or daptomycin is considered. For children with MRSA infected bone or joints, treatment is individualized and long-term. Neonates can develop Neonatal pustulosis as a result of topical infection with MRSA.[6] Clindamycin is not approved for the treatment of MRSA infection it is still used in children for soft tissue infections.[6]

A 1,000-year-old eye salve recipe found in the medieval Bald's Leechbook at the British Library, one of the earliest known medical textbooks, was found to have activity against MRSA in vitro and in skin wounds in mice.[102]

Alternative medicine

Aqueous extracts of bay laurel can also be used as astringents and even as a reasonable salve for open wounds.[9]

In massage therapy, the essential oil of bay laurel is reputed to alleviate arthritis and rheumatism, while in aromatherapy, it is used to treat earaches and high blood pressure.[10] A traditional folk remedy for rashes caused by poison ivy, poison oak, and stinging nettle is a poultice soaked in boiled bay leaves.[11]

The chemical compound lauroside B isolated from Laurus nobilis is an inhibitor of human melanoma (skin cancer) cell proliferation at high concentrations in-vitro.[12]

Food

The plant is the source of several popular herbs and one spice used in a wide variety of recipes, particularly among Mediterranean cuisines.[4] Most commonly, the aromatic leaves are added whole to Italian pasta sauces.

Chemical constituents

The most abundant component found in laurel essential oil is 1,8-cineole, also called eucalyptol. The leaves contain about 1.3% essential oils (ol. lauri folii), consisting of 45% eucalyptol, 12% other terpenes, 8-12% terpinyl acetate, 3–4% sesquiterpenes, 3% methyleugenol, and other α- and β-pinenes, phellandrene, linalool, geraniol, and terpineol, contains lauric acid also.[7]

Both essential and fatty oils are present in the fruit. The fruit is pressed and water-extracted to obtain these products. The fruit contains up to 30% fatty oils and about 1% essential oils (terpenes, sesquiterpenes, alcohols, and ketones).

Laurus nobilis is an aromatic evergreen tree or large shrub with green, glabrous leaves, in the flowering plant family Lauraceae. It is native to the Mediterranean region and is used as bay leaf for seasoning in cooking. Its common names include bay laurel, sweet bay, bay (esp. United Kingdom),[1]:84 true laurel, Grecian laurel,[2] laurel tree or simply laurel. Laurus nobilis figures prominently in classical Greek, Roman, and Biblical culture.

I'd like to talk a little bit here about my health and fitness regimen, hear what others think and maybe get some new ideas. I've always been in good shape and have considered myself fit, but by no means been a health nut. This year, though, I've gotten into the best shape of my life. I think it has to do with getting older. As you get older you realize time is moving faster, and what you lose to age you're not going to get back. You want to at least slow down the clock, if not turn it back.

It started with krav maga, which I began taking at the beginning of this year. Krav maga is a martial arts discipline developed in Israel. It is known for its brutal, simple, efficient style, which is just what I was looking for. It is not sport fighting. It is street fighting, basically. For the last couple years I'd been thinking about getting trained in an unarmed, combative self-defense technique. I carry a gun and am proficient in tactical firearms use, but a gun isn't always a solution to your problem, and laws prevent you from taking them many places. When I finally started doing research on unarmed self defense I settled on krav, and it was the right choice for me because I love it.

On a broader context, I have a sort of fascination with violence, particularly man's ability to inflict physical pain and suffering on another. Mass shooters, terrorists, serial killers, child molesters, common street thugs, and other predators in our society. Who are they, and why do they act this way? I'm not sure how many certifiable sociopaths there are walking around out there. Not many, probably, maybe 2 or 3%. But they are out there. And I want to do everything I can to not be a victim, and not let my wife and little girl be victims. As a male, I believe you have a duty to be willing to flip the switch, as it were, and inflict violence on someone who deserves it. The continued de-masculinization of our society discourages this type of behavior, but I'm a throwback that way, a holdout.

Anyway, krav maga has been great for me. I try to go three times a week, and it's a great workout. There is always at least one point during class where I just get utterly smoked and am gasping for air. It really conditions you. It also has opened up other areas for fitness and health improvement which I continue to work on, like diet, sleep and overall positive living. I'll talk more about these when I have more time.

Thanks for the post. I haven't included much in the thread on fitness - but of course it is a huge part of health.

Perhaps you would like to include some feedback on how long the workout lasts and how it is helped you feel better overall. What changes have you made to your diet? Do you feel more positive about your trading - that is better attitude and more able to cope with the pressures? Do you sleep better, now?

Krav classes are an hour long. I try to do one during the week at night and two on Saturday. They also offer kickboxing which I haven't done but am thinking about. Boxing, or any type of striking work is serious exercise, and boxers are some of the most conditioned athletes in the world. The work they put in to get ready for a bout is intense. Try three minutes on a punching bag and see how you feel. In a fight boxers do that 10 times or more, all while trying not to get beat up.

I've got this covered structure on my property, like a small barn without any walls, and I hung a 100 pound punching bag from the rafters. On days I don't go to class I'll work on that and it's great. I can move 360 degrees around it and get a great workout.

I also do other types of workouts at home which are probably more intense than what I do in class. And I use minimal equipment. A lot of what I do is just using body weight. I do a lot of burpees, push ups, crunches, plank rows, mountain climbers, squat jumps, Russian twists, and a few other things I don't know the names of. The key for me is doing high intensity interval training. I'm real big on tabatas. That's where you exercise in short, intense bursts with short breaks in between.

I've got a timer app on my phone with an alarm bell and a whistle. My typical workout is 40 seconds work, 10 seconds rest, four times. That's one set. Do that for 30 minutes with a couple minutes rest in between each set. I do this three times a week at home, then on top of that three classes a week.

Do I feel better? I think so. Gives you more energy and just makes you feel better about life. And it's nice to get compliments. Once you get on a fitness or diet routine, and people start noticing, that's huge motivation to keep doing it. I ran into an ex-girlfriend recently. She was kind of eyeing me up and down and like, "Wow, you look good. You been going to the gym?" And I'm like...yeah. Even guys will say things to me. "Dude, you're looking ripped these days!"

I'll talk more about diet and sleep, but gotta get back to work now.

Regarding my diet, that too has changed as I've gotten older. Not radically, just subtly over the years as you realize you can no longer eat whatever you want, however much you want, and not gain a pound. I used to be that way, then one day I realized I was actually starting to put on weight.

I've heard that humans on average gain about a pound a year as they age. You definitely have to incorporate some basic changes into your lifestyle if you want to avoid that. Once they become habits, though, they're not too difficult.

I'm not on any special diets, and I don't eat any weird foods. I just have some simple rules I abide by: avoid processed, junk foods, avoid sweets and sugars, avoid alcohol, eat lots of fresh stuff (fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish), make your meals small, and don't eat late at night.

I don't have a strict diet, I just try to eat things that are low in calories and high in protein. For breakfast I have Greek yogurt with fruit and/or granola, then an egg and some meat on the side. I usually don't do lunch. Instead I have several small meals during the day. I might have a protein bar with peanut butter later in the morning, then early afternoon I'll have a shake.

I love shakes. There are so many different ways you can make them. My favorite right now is a soy milk, a handful of spinach, a spoon of peanut butter, maybe some flax seed, and a small scoop of whey protein powder. Blend it all together and you don't even taste the spinach (though it does turn green). Great way to get your vegetables. Sometimes I use kale, but that's real tough and doesn't get chopped up as well in the blender.

This is also my post-workout shake, except I use mostly water instead of milk and I put in a whole scoop of protein powder. I used to put in two scoops but it gave me headaches. One scoop is enough.

Later on in the day I'll have a handful of nuts and some berries as a snack. On the way home I'll eat an apple. Dinner is light, like some grilled meat with rice and vegetables.

I'm really trying to cut down on alcohol. I've never been a heavy drinker, but it used to be typical for me to come home after a long day and have a beer or two, maybe a couple fingers of whiskey. You do that a few times a week as you get older and it's going to show. What I try to do now is not drink at all Monday-Friday. My favorite non-alcohol drink is club soda with a splash of cranberry juice and lime. It's so refreshing! I almost never drink sodas like coke. On weekends I'll let myself imbibe a little. Yesterday was Saturday, and I had a glass of wine in the afternoon and a beer before going out to dinner. Something else I'm trying to do is not drink alcohol when I go out. Expensive! Last night at dinner I just had my club soda and cranberry. It's much cheaper to drink at home.

I used to enjoy things like alcohol, desserts, and fried food. Once you realize you don't need it, though, it's not too hard to go without. But you do have to make it a habit. And the choice has to be within you. If nothing else, just make your consumption of these things real small. Like with a piece of chocolate cake, don't have the whole thing. Just have one bite, then put it away. One bite's not going to do any harm.

I wish I could get 10 hours of sleep a night. At best I get 8, and sometimes less. Most days I wake up early, like 5.30-6, because I've got so many things to do in the morning. At this point my body is so used to it that it's hard for me to sleep past that. If I don't set an alarm I'm probably going to wake up at 6.30.

I try to have lights out by 10, though I might not get to sleep until a little after that. I think eating light at night and not drinking alcohol helps. There have been stressful periods in my life where I'd wake up at 3 or 4 in the morning and not be able to get back to sleep, but I haven't had one of those in a while.

Early to bed, early to rise is still good advice.

Wives of former NFL players are left to navigate concussion settlement

Powerful article here. I don't really have much of an opinion on the National Football League's role in CTE, or why so many of their former players who made them so much money over the years now have oatmeal where they used to have a brain. Don't get me wrong, I like to watch a game now and then, but the NFL exists for pretty much only two reasons: 1, to earn as much money as they can for themselves, and 2, make the average American fat, lazy and stupid. So my level of trust, you could say is pretty low.

It's a sad situation all around for the family members who are left to pick up the pieces. And it drives home the point once again that if you and your loved ones are in good health, you're blessed. Cherish it.

Ever wonder about what happened to

"First, do no harm."
and
"Let food be your medicine."
?

Greed.
---------------------------
Don't Take The Drugs Your Doctor Gave You Until You Read This | Zero Hedge

You walk into your doctor’s office for a physical exam and step on the scale. Last year, the doctor said you were overweight. Now he says you are obese — at the same weight.

A nurse takes your blood pressure. You have hypertension — with the same previously healthy reading you’ve had for years.

The doctor scans your wrist bone. You have a condition called “osteopenia” — with the same bone density that was fine last time you were measured…

You are suddenly sick, simply because the definitions of disease have changed. And behind those changes, a Seattle Times examination has found, are the companies that make all those newly prescribed pills.

--
Basically, 66% of the highly cited studies could not really be trusted. There just was not enough evidence of their findings to take them as solid truth. 32% of the studies should have been ruled out altogether, since later better studies found the results incorrect or highly exaggerated.

The issue is that the drugs themselves can cause serious harm and side effects. Many have not been studied over the course of enough years to be accurately labeled as safe. Doctors are prescribing the drugs to younger and younger patients since the threshold for each illness, and who is at risk, has been lowered, with the influence of the drug companies.

The best thing to do is make every effort to avoid ever having to use mainstream medicine. Excercise and eating right is a good start.

And for herbal remedies to some common, and some serious, conditions, check out The Green Pharmacy by James Duke. You might find that ginger and pineapple are a better anti-inflammatory option than the stomach churning over the counter pills.

Right of Informed Consent means the doctor is required to :
  • tell of a second diagnosis
  • tell you all the side effects of his/her prescription
  • offer you a second choice and
  • explain the effects of no prescription.

Did your MD do this?
Did he/she fully inform you of ALL side possible side effects?
No?

Next time you go to an MD - should you be so foolish or desperate, bring your own

Infomed Consent Form


In the blanks complete
"side effect I was warned of - none."

Second treatment offered:
"None"

Explanation of no likely outcome of no treatment/prescription that was offered:
"none"

Then hand it to your MD and ask them to sign it under the words
"This is an accurate description of the counsel I offered."

------signature --------
Name Printed ----------
Date -----
City and State/Prov of Signing ------------

Queen’s University student Caitlin Miron receiving the 2017 Mitacs Award for Outstanding Innovation in Ottawa, Ontario

Caitlin Miron has found something huge: A week ago she was honoured for discovering a chemical compound with the ability to prevent cancer growth, but it could also have significant applications in halting the spread of HIV, too. In an exclusive interview with Yahoo Canada News, the Ontario PhD student revealed why her discovery could be more far-reaching — for everything from HIV to Zika — than originally reported.

“There is also a quadruplex forming sequence in an area of HIV that’s responsible for infection of a human host,” Caitlin Miron, the PhD student at Queen’s University, Department of Chemistry who identified the compound said to Yahoo Canada News.

Miron’s research starts with the study of DNA. Most people have likely seen the double helix model of DNA but in our cells, to access the information in that double helix, the DNA has to become temporarily single-stranded.

Miron uses a necklace as an analogy for how single-stranded DNA functions. The strand of DNA is the chain of the necklace and then beads, or cellular machinery that reads and processes DNA to make proteins, are able to move freely along that chain.

“They can keep doing that until they come to a knot,” Miron said. “Usually the cell has a way to unravel that knot but if somebody’s gone there first and used superglue on that knot,…it is basically a permanent object and it’s a barrier so the beads can’t get passed it.”

The knot is an unusual fold of DNA, a guanine quadruplex or G4, and the newly discovered compound is that superglue that stabilizes the unusual architecture and blocks access to specific sections that come after it.

According to Miron, in the last ten years, research and advances in bioinformatics has show that a number of these knots can form directly in front of oncogenes, sections of DNA that if processed make proteins that contribute to cancer development and metastasis, which is the term used to describe cancer that spreads to a different part of the body from where it began.

“If we can block that process from happening, then maybe we’re going to be able to prevent certain aspects of cancer development or metastasis,” Miron said.

Through Miron’s research, it has also been discovered that this compound’s affects could move beyond cancer treatment.

“These knots are also known to form in a lot of different viruses, the Zika virus has one, so there are applications outside of cancer treatment,” Miron said.

In terms of the possible use in cancer treatment in particular, Miron says that there are different knots in different quadruplexes, some of which can be associated with most cancers and some that are more specific.

“At least one of [the knots] that leads to cancer cell immortality, that ability to continue dividing over and over again, is associate with about 85 per cent of cancers,” Miron said. “There is a little bit of potential specificity in there but it may also be something that could be broad spectrum, we don’t know at this point.”
Beginning her research

The Ottawa native started her journey with Dr. Anne Petitjean at her lab at Queen’s University. Morin began volunteering over the course of her undergraduate degree, initially in biochemistry but switching to chemistry after loving her time in the lab. She was initially drawn to the study of DNA in high school, which continued to motivate her research interests throughout her undergraduate degree and into her PhD.

A significant turning point in Miron’s research occurred when the PhD student received scholarships from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and Mitacs Globalink as travel supplements to study her compounds from the Petitjean lab in Kingston, Ontario at the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology (IECB) in Bordeaux, France, under the supervision of Dr. Jean-Louis Mergny.

“Dr. Jean-Louis Mergny is probably one of the top researchers in the field of guanine quadruplex recognition,” Miron said. “They’ve pioneered this kind of high throughput screening platform that you can test a very large number of compounds to generate hits.”

When Miron arrived at the IECB, she did not have extensive experience with Mergny’s particular study of G4 and she had to learn a lot in the field, using the chemical compounds she brought over from Queen’s University.

“It wasn’t a field of research that we weren’t particularly based in so I had very little experience with the techniques that I was going to have to learn and the field itself,” Miron said. “It was mostly a matter of just getting there and diving in and asking questions and going from expert to expert with my compounds.”
Current status and future plans

At this point in the discovery, the provisional patent has been filed and publishing these findings would be the next step in the process. It could take a year before the formal patent is filed and additional research is required before it could be formally introduced to the medical industry.

“We are trying to think about how can we make these compounds more targeted to cancer cells, how can we improve their entrance through a cell membrane into a cell, all those things for biocompatibility, that will be important down the line for pharmaceuticals,” Miron said.

With this great success in research and significant notoriety, Miron has been wrapping up the work she has done with the Petitjean lab and the IECB, and is also focusing on bringing the techniques that she learned in France to Queen’s University. The PhD student was honoured to be recognized for the 2017 Mitacs Award for Outstanding Innovation, calling the whole process and subsequent acknowledgment from Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, an “emotional” experience.

“It’s a nice validation of the importance of the research and our progress in moving it forward,” Miron said.

As she continues to advance in her career, Miron has her mind set on working in industry versus academia, and is also interested in expanding her scope of research as she plans to move into a post-doctoral program, possibly even leaving her compound discovery behind for others at the Petitjean lab to continue.

“I would like to see where it goes but at the same time, if the last four years have taught me anything it’s that I also really like learning new things, and exploring new fields and getting that kind of multidisciplinary research,” Miron said. “I would like to stay in health applications but I don’t think I would limit myself to just cancer research, I’m definitely interested in looking at other things as well.”

"You can't exercise your way out of a bad diet." You may have heard this before and I firmly believe it, especially as I get older. I written before in this thread about my diet and how I try to stay disciplined. I'm not super, super disciplined mind you. Alex Gordon, pro baseball player and outfielder for the Kansas City Royals, once stated "I haven't had a cheeseburger in five years." I remember having a cheeseburger two months ago.

You definitely see and feel the difference when you just cut out the refined sugar, high sodium foods, booze, white flour, fried, greasy stuff and pretty much anything else that's not good for you. And for me, once I started doing it and got into the habit, I didn't want to break it. And yes I will have a handful of potato chips or m&ms from time to time. But it's minimal. Most of my diet is fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, chicken and fish. Right now I am making dinner. Oven roasted vegetables and cod filet, with just some olive oil and salt sprinkled on.

Name any type of bad food and you can replace it with something healthy. Instead of chips and cookies for snack, eat nuts and fruit. Instead of ketchup, mayonnaise, dressings or sauces, use hummus or ground up avocado. Instead of coke, drink club soda with a lemon or lime.

High-sugar drinks are the most pernicious. Sodas, sports drinks and fancy coffees are just terrible for you. Cut them out altogether.

@Pariah Carey

Excellent post and so very true!
Thank-you.

Making intelligent choices and learning what is good for your body is key to a long life of vitality.

"the body is the temple, not the tavern" - its time to stop putting chips and coke in it.

Most days all I drink are water or unsweetened almond milk. I used to have a glass of cranberry or orange juice with breakfast and thought I was being healthy, then realized how much sugar they contain. Stop drinking dairy milk and fruit juices. You're not five years old anymore.

Alcohol consumption has been reduced pretty much just to weekends, and very moderate at that. Last week I had a beer on Saturday afternoon and a cocktail that night, and that was it for the whole week. Now I actually like buying a bottle of liquor or case of beer and seeing how long I can keep it unopened. I'm kind of weird that way.

Things are different when I'm on vacation. Hard to be so disciplined. In June I'm going to Dominican Republic and damn I can already taste the Cuba libres. Going to get me some of that good Cuban rum. I was in Panama in February, buying bottles of Havana Club in the grocery store. I was like, "this is heaven."

I’m working more and more on going to a whole grain and plant based diet. I don’t keep track of amounts but I estimate that over the last couple years it’s been 40-50%. Now I’m shooting for 70%. Most of my meals lately have been a whole grain like brown rice or quinoa topped with grilled vegetables, and a little meat on top. Most meat I have is chicken breast roasted in the slow cooker. Very seldom do I have pork and even more seldom red meat.

I eat fish two or three times a week. I have a few types that I prefer like grouper, halibut, salmon, tuna or snapper. The one absolute requirement is that it be wild caught. No matter the weather I grill fish outside because I can’t stand the smell of it cooking in the house. I just season both sides with some spices and salt, then sear with coconut and sesame oil. I’ll do like four minutes each side. Ahi tuna I do 90 seconds each side.

I make a lot of booze-related posts in my journal, but my alcohol consumption is usually pretty minimal. It’s usually only on vacations that I do any heavy drinking. More and more I’m going to simple drinks like red wine or beer. If I’m going to drink hard liquor it’s probably vodka. Sadly this means I must end my relationships with Jack and coke, and Cuba libres.

If you’re going to be this committed to healthy eating, you kind of have to eschew a social life. Just too much temptation when you're out to have fried food, alcohol, things like that. If I have 20 working days a month, at least 18 of them I pack my lunch and just eat at the office. Not only is it cheaper and saves time, I can control what I eat. You see pictures of guys who are these, like, fitness models and they have sculpted bodies and they talk about eating healthy and their diets and 30-day meal plans and crap like that. The level of sacrifice that takes is something most people just can’t comprehend.

But I enjoy eating healthy. You have to really cook if you’re going to do it, otherwise you’ll be miserable. You have to find ways to make meals taste good. For me that means slow roasting, and using different spices and generous helpings of garlic.

DMF probable human carcinogen found in heart pill



Valisure, an online pharmacy company licensed in 37 states, told the FDA last week that high levels of dimethylformamide were found in valsartan, a drug produced by Swiss drugmaker Novartis and other pharmaceutical companies. The drug is used to treat hypertension in adults. The World Health Organization classifies dimethylformamide, or DMF, as a probable human carcinogen.

Valisure asked that the medication be recalled and requested that the FDA review and significantly lower the acceptable intake of DMF from its current level of 8,800,000 nanograms to less than 1,000 nanograms. The online pharmacy said it found the cancer-causing chemical in valsartan produced by five companies.

...
In a statement to CNBC, a spokesperson for Novartis said in general the company's manufacturing process does not use DMF but it cannot currently fully "exclude the possibility that traces of DMF (within applicable limits) may have been present in materials of other Drug Substances suppliers."

Several blood pressure drugs have already been recalled due to concerns about other cancer-causing chemicals. Earlier this month, Israel-based Teva Pharmaceuticals said it would expand a recall of its heart medication, losartan potassium, after a carcinogen known asN-Nitrosodimethylamine, or NMBA was detected. Torrent Pharmaceuticals in April said it would also recall losartan and Camber Pharmaceutical told the FDA in February it would recall the drug.

Please Note! If you are on a blood pressure lowering medication and you take a natural herb that ALSO LOWERS IT, YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY MONITOR YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE and get the medication reduced by the doctor.

Having TOO LOW blood pressure is also bad for you (and even dangerous if it falls too low

There are tests you can do to monitor certain areas that need work.

Search online and see. Some naturopathic clinics even let you order tests off their site without having to pay for a consultation (do your research and choose your company carefully)

For example, there is testing for levels of different fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, neurotransmitters, even gut bacteria.

I'm not a professional in this field but this has all directly improved my trading results and life in general (still have to work on it). I believe that this can help others as well, trader or not.

Edit: If you do any of these tests, always take the results to someone qualified to help you interpret them, like a Naturopath.

2001 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which was initially devastating to her. “The day you hear those three words, ‘You have cancer’ … man, it rocks your world.”

She walked on the beach with Alan that day, arm-in-arm, and she says she heard a voice in her head (not an infrequent occurrence). “The voice said to me, ‘You can handle this,'” Suzanne relates. “I got back in the house and I said to Alan, ‘I can handle this.’ And I decided that I could. That’s when I decided I’m not taking chemotherapy and when I told the doctor that, he said, ‘You’re going to die.’ I said, ‘I cannot reckon with the fact of taking my weakened body right now and weakening it even more with poison. It doesn’t make sense to me and it never will. I’m not going to do it.’ It was all over the news, but here I am and my body’s healthy and it’s not ravaged by poison. I didn’t have to come back from the brink of death, I just did it my way through nutrition, detoxification and pancreatic enzymes.”

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

In this video
https://youtu.be/EpBPa_sC8lY?t=5777
at 1:36:17 he talks about non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

---------------
Wiki link
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-alcoholic_fatty_liver_disease
-----------------------------
From Pubmed

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome; its rising prevalence parallels the rise in obesity and diabetes. Historically thought to result from overnutrition and a sedentary lifestyle, recent evidence suggests that diets high in sugar (from sucrose and/or high-fructose corn syrup [HFCS]) not only increase the risk of NAFLD, but also non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Herein, we review the experimental and clinical evidence that fructose precipitates fat accumulation in the liver, due to both increased lipogenesis and impaired fat oxidation. Recent evidence suggests that the predisposition to fatty liver is linked to the metabolism of fructose by fructokinase C, which results in ATP consumption, nucleotide turnover and uric acid generation that mediate fat accumulation. Alterations to gut permeability, the microbiome, and associated endotoxemia contribute to the risk of NAFLD and NASH. Early clinical studies suggest that reducing sugary beverages and total fructose intake, especially from added sugars, may have a significant benefit on reducing hepatic fat accumulation. We suggest larger, more definitive trials to determine if lowering sugar/HFCS intake, and/or blocking uric acid generation, may help reduce NAFLD and its downstream complications of cirrhosis and chronic liver disease.

The following is an ad for a book
(https://www.reverseyourfattyliver.com/)

Do You Have Any Of These Symptoms?

Statistics say if you live in the US or Canada, there’s a 1 in 3 chance you have fatty liver, even if you were never formally diagnosed. If you experience ANY of these risk factors, your liver is literally crying for help…

You have extra weight on your belly, thighs, or hips
You have high cholesterol
You feel tired and sluggish
You have mental fog and trouble focusing your attention
Your vision is blurry or sensitive to light
Your back or right side are constantly sore
You have diarrhea or irregular bowel movements
You were diagnosed with Syndrome X or heart disease
You have dark or brown urine
You have insulin resistance or diabetes
You have trouble consuming alcohol
Your eyes or skin seem to have a yellowish tinge

If you answered yes to any of the above, and you are over age 45, there’s a higher than average chance you have fatty liver, which means this page was specifically written for you

How Do People Get Fatty Liver?

There are multiple reasons so many people are getting fatty liver, but the biggest by far has to do with our modern-day, over-processed, preservative-filled diet.


And that LONG list of symptoms? They just disappear once you restore your liver function…

Liver fat naturally dissolves and is safely flushed out of your body, along with the chance that you’ll contract something serious like cirrhosis or liver cancer.
Belly fat, love handles, and thighs shrink as your liver function and hormone levels return to their normal state when liver fat is expelled.
Your skin gets softer and blemishes begin to clear up. You may find yourself looking years younger because there are no poisons irritating your skin. If you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis, it may completely dissipate on it’s own when your liver gets healthy.
You will likely experience greater focus and concentration because your brain isn’t filled with toxic, acidic blood. You’ll be more alert and think clearer. Some people even believe a healthy liver makes you more intelligent (I sure do).
Vision improves and you see more clearly, especially in low light (easier to drive at night). Colors become more vibrant, and if you wear glasses, you may not need as strong a prescription.
Many people sleep better, without drugs or constantly waking up. Start each morning well-rested and ready to make every day count.
Because your liver helps with digestion, stomach and bowel problems are often reduced. Fats, sugars, and toxins are quickly eliminated via your healthy digestive system, while important nutrients and minerals are absorbed to help your body thrive.
You might find yourself snapping out of depression and anger faster. Many people swear those feelings just melt away. Mood swings and stress may be significantly reduced as well.

And of course there are many improvements you can’t see, but you know are happening nonetheless

There are three main types of fatty liver disease people get…

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) – Also known as “simple” fatty liver disease, NAFLD is the most common, and is probably what you have. It’s primarily caused by diet and exposure to environmental toxins like pollution and pesticides.
Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (AFLD) – AFLD is mainly from drinking too much alcohol, which literally kills your liver and replaces healthy cells with fatty deposits.
Non-Alcoholic Steatosis (NASH) – This is the most serious form of fatty liver, because it means some scarring has already occurred. It’s what I was diagnosed with. Left untreated, it can quickly turn into deadly cirrhosis and even liver-cancer, so my doctor wasn’t kidding when he said it could kill me.

Your Doctor Probably Won’t Be Much Help

Like I said before, the “official” story is that there’s no cure for fatty liver disease, which means you won’t get much help (or sympathy) from your doctor. In fact…

1. They might even blame you for your condition. When it comes to fatty liver, diabetes, heart problems, and weight issues, many doctors blame the patient, saying they have no self-control or they don’t exercise enough. The fact is though, most doctors refuse to admit how toxic our world has become, or how difficult it is to know which foods are actually healthy with all the conflicting information out there.

2. Misdiagnosis is common. The symptoms and physical ailments caused by fatty liver are so widespread and can appear so unrelated that your doctor may try to treat your SYMPTOMS just to move you through the system (and out of their office). This could actually make you much WORSE because any drug they prescribe is just one more toxin your already struggling liver has to deal with.

3. The information you receive is generic and useless. That’s what happened with me… My doctor kind of shrugged his shoulders after diagnosing me and handed me a photocopied pamphlet with generic info that wasn’t even specific to my condition. There was nothing about how I got it or how to get rid of it.

peace, love and joy to you
