Antioxidative and antiviral properties of flowering cherry fruits (Prunus serrulata L. var. spontanea).

Am J Chin Med. 2010;38(5):937-48

Authors: Yook HS, Kim KH, Park JE, Shin HJ

The phenolic compounds of many fruits have been known to be efficient cellular protective antioxidants. In this study, antioxidative and antiviral properties of flowering cherry cultivars (Prunus yedoensis, Prunus sargentii, Prunus lannesiana, and Prunus cerasus) in Korea were investigated. The antioxidant property was assayed for specific activities including 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) hydroxy radical scavenging activity, reducing power capacity, and superoxide dismutase (SOD) like activity. In addition, antiviral activity was determined by inhibition studies on the infection cycle of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), measured as minimum concentration of cherry extracts that inhibited 50% of cytopathic effect (CPE) on PEDV. Our results show that the four varieties of cherries contain substantially high antioxidants and antiviral activities. In particular, P. cerasus contains higher antioxidants and antiviral activities as well as polyphenolic content than other varieties. Our data indicate that Korean native cherry cultivars could be beneficial supplements of dietary antioxidants and natural antiviral agents.–PMID: 20821824 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

Make a SUPER CHERRY Remedy—Juice the cherries in a juicer and then take and add the amount in equal portions in brandy or cognac and blend together for 5 minutes—pour into a glass container and use 1 tablespoon several times a day or when in pain

Cherry 2—take the left over cherry and mix with beet and apple as a sauce and consume regularly—

Cherry 3 take the left over and add to honey and blend til fused or for 5-8 minutes-allow to cool and you have a cherry jam or spread


Chemical Compounds in Trees Can Fight Deadly Staph Infections in Humans

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a “superbug” that is resistant to most medications, sickened more than 94,000 people in 2005 and killed more than 19,000 in the US, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control. –ScienceDaily (Feb. 25, 2011) — Most people would never suspect that a “trash tree,” one with little economic value and often removed by farmers due to its ability to destroy farmland, could be the key to fighting a deadly bacterium. Now, a University of Missouri researcher has found an antibiotic in the Eastern Red Cedar tree that is effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a “superbug” that is resistant to most medications.–“I wanted to find a use for a tree species that is considered a nuisance,” said Chung-Ho Lin, research assistant professor in the MU Center for Agroforestry at the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. “This discovery could help people fight the bacteria as well as give farmers another cash crop.”–MRSA is an evolving bacterium that is resistant to most medications[U1]. For most people, the infection is isolated to the skin. However, it can spread to vital organs causing toxic shock syndrome and pneumonia, especially in people with weakened immune systems. The incidence of disease caused by MRSA bacteria is increasing worldwide. Thirty years ago, MRSA accounted for 2 percent of all staph infections. By 2003, that number had climbed to 64 percent. In 2005, more than 94,000 people developed life-threatening MRSA infections in the United States, according to a Centers for Disease Control report. Nearly 19,000 people died during hospital stays related to these infections.—While the Eastern Red Cedar has few commercial uses, it is present in the U.S. in large numbers and its range extends from Kansas to the eastern United States. An estimated 500 million trees grow in Missouri. Lin began his investigation by building on existing research showing the anti-bacterial potential of chemical compounds derived from the tree.—Lin, George Stewart, professor and department chair of Pathobiology in the College of Veterinary Medicine, and Brian Thompson, postdoctoral fellow in the Bond Life Sciences Center, identified, isolated and tested 17 bioactive compounds and has plans to analyze more compounds. Scientists found that a relatively small concentration of a chemical compound found in the Eastern Red Cedar- 5 micrograms per milliliter — was effective against MRSA. The team tested the compound’s effectiveness against many versions of MRSA in a test tube with promising initial results.-“We found this chemical from the cedar needles, an abundant and renewable resource that can be collected annually,” co-researcher Brian Thompson said. “Because the compound is in the needles, we don’t have to cut down the trees.”—-In addition to its potential use in fighting MRSA, researchers found that some chemical compounds in the tree are able to fight and kill skin cancer cells present in mice. It may also be effective as a topical acne treatment. Stewart said the compounds are years away from commercial use, as they must go through clinical trials. The team’s research was presented recently at the International Conference on Gram-Positive Pathogens.-Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by University of Missouri-Columbia.

How to Make a Red Cedar Recipe–How to make—Simmer the needles in wine in a slow cooker for a day or more—Strain and bottle—use 1 tsp several times a day or apply topically—this as well can be used for respiratory issues

The Case Against Fluoride


Wolf Performance Hall, Central Library, London, ON

Wednesday, March 2, 2011 (6:30 pm � 9:00 pm)

London Media Contact: Pam Killeen 519-488-5376

On March 2, 2011, Paul Connett, PhD, co-author of The Case Against Fluoride and Executive Director of the Fluoride Action Network, will be speaking at the Wolf Performance Hall (Central Library) about the very real concerns regarding artificial water fluoridation. The three main points that Dr. Connett will demonstrate are that fluoride is ineffective, unsafe and unethical. There is scientific consensus that fluoride over-exposure is a contributor to many health problems including cardiovascular disease, cancer, thyroid suppression, arthritic-like pain, dementia, diabetes, colic in babies, and irritable bowel syndrome. In 2006, the US National Research Council (NRC) published a comprehensive review of recent fluoride studies. The report states that fluoride is an “endocrine disruptor” and that Fluoride appears to have the potential to initiate or promote cancers, particularly of the bone… The Carcinogen Identification Committee for the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment recently listed fluoride as one of the 5 chemicals selected for possible listing as a carcinogen. The crucial message of the NRC report is that the highest scientific authority in the US has determined that low levels of fluoride in drinking water may have serious adverse health effects, says Dr. Paul Connett. —Connett adds, “There are three words that proponents dare not discuss, these are ‘margin of safety.’ When Chinese researchers found that lowering of IQ in children is associated with fluoride at 1.9 ppm, it should have ended fluoridation. Using the standard safety factor of 10 to protect the whole population would mean that the most sensitive children in Canada could have their intelligence lowered by drinking one to two glasses of water daily at 0.7 ppm fluoride (the level used in Ontario). Historians will be astounded that North American health authorities put children’s teeth ahead of their brains.” –Because some individuals consume up to 10 times more water than the average, it is obvious that the daily intake of fluoride cannot be controlled when delivered via drinking water. [U1]Although drinking water is the single largest source of fluorides, most individuals are unaware that fluoride is also in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the beverages we drink[U2], and dental products, leading to an epidemic of dental fluorosis, the visible sign of fluoride over-exposure.

Research from members of the Canadian Public Health Service (CPHS) demonstrates that artificial water fluoridation does not prevent cavities. This research from CPHS reveals that 1) artificial water fluoridation is a significant waste of taxpayers’ money; 2) every dollar spent on artificial water fluoridation contributes to environmental degradation of source water and the degradation of our health. –Evidence from Freedom of Information Requests, letters, and Petitions to the Auditor General of Canada now demonstrates that the fluoride products used in drinking water are not compliant with the regulatory requirements of the Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act, written in the post-Walkerton era. A growing number of organizations such as the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE), Great Lakes United, Environmental Protection Agency unions and professionals worldwide are calling for an end to artificial drinking water fluoridation. –A recent statement by CAPE states: On the basis of this weight of evidence we believe that fluoridation of drinking water is scientifically untenable, and should not be part of a public health initiative or program.–A growing number of municipalities around the world have recently voted to remove fluoride from their drinking water. The most recent communities to do so in Canada include: Calgary, AB, Waterloo, ON, Welland, ON, Thorold, ON, Dryden, ON, Kamloops, BC, Kelowna BC, and Quebec City, PQ, Vercheres, PQ and CFB Kingston.

Osteosarcoma–Flouride poisoning result

Cancer Causes Control. 2006 May;17(4):481-2.


OBJECTIVE: We explored age-specific and gender-specific effects of fluoride level in drinking water and the incidence of osteosarcoma.

METHODS: We used data from a matched case-control study conducted through 11 hospitals in the United States that included a complete residential history for each patient and type of drinking water (public, private well, bottled) used at each address. Our analysis was limited to cases less than 20 years old. We standardized fluoride exposure estimates based on CDC-recommended target levels that take climate into account. We categorized exposure into three groups (<30%, 30-99%, >99% of target) and used conditional logistic regression to estimate odds ratios.

RESULTS: Analysis is based on 103 cases under the age of 20 and 215 matched controls. For males, the unadjusted odds ratios for higher exposures were greater than 1.0 at each exposure age, reaching a peak of 4.07 (95% CI 1.43, 11.56) at age 7 years for the highest exposure. Adjusting for potential confounders produced similar results with an adjusted odds ratio for males of 5.46 (95% CI 1.50, 19.90) at age 7 years. This association was not apparent among females.

CONCLUSIONS: Our exploratory analysis found an association between fluoride exposure in drinking water during childhood and the incidence of osteosarcoma among males but not consistently among females. Further research is required to confirm or refute this observation. PMID 16596294



Parliament Under Pressure to Stop Genetically Modified Fish-


Motion in the House of Commons requests transparency

Thursday, March 3, 2011.

Ottawa – Today in the House of Commons, New Democratic Party Fisheries and Oceans Critic Fin Donnelly tabled a motion asking for transparency and more study before genetically modified (GM) Atlantic salmon are approved for human consumption.–US company AquaBounty has genetically modified a faster growing Atlantic salmon by inserting a growth hormone gene from Chinook salmon and genetic material from ocean pout.–AquaBounty has asked the US Food and Drug Administration to approve the GM Atlantic salmon for human consumption but the status of any requests for approvals from the company to the Canadian government are unknown because our federal departments refuse to disclose this information.—“Why won’t the government tell us if they are doing a risk assessment?” asked Leo Broderick of PEI and Vice-Chair of the Council of Canadians, “AquaBounty wants to supply the market with genetically modified salmon eggs from PEI but Canadians have no clue if the company has asked for approval here.”—AquaBounty is not planning to produce GM salmon in the US but is instead proposing to produce all the GM salmon eggs on Prince Edward Island and then ship the eggs for grow out and processing in Panama, for selling into the US consumer market.[U3]
Today’s motion asks the government to explain its regulations and to set up a system to notify Canadians about any requests for approval and approval decisions. The motion also asks the government to “prevent the introduction of genetically modified salmon destined for human consumption into the Canadian food system until further scientific studies are concluded by the relevant departments to determine the impact of genetically modified salmon on human health and on the health of marine species, ecosystems and habitats.”–“We call on all Members of Parliament to support the motion. It is a request for basic transparency,” said Lucy Sharratt of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network. “This cloak of secrecy is unjustifiable and, frankly, ridiculous.”—“DFO’s own scientists have acknowledged that genetically modified salmon pose a real risk to our wild fish stocks,” said Catherine Stewart of Living Oceans Society in B.C. “Any debate on this issue, any scientific research informing the debate, must be made available to all concerned citizens.”–Sixty fisheries and oceans conservation, environmental and social justice groups released a joint statement in December 6, 2010, opposing GM fish. –For more information: Lucy Sharratt, Canadian Biotechnology Action Network, Cell 613 263 9511; Leo Broderick, Council of Canadians, 902 894 4874; Catherine Stewart, Living Oceans Society: 604-916-6722;


Blood Enhancer—this can be made by adding in 10 herbs in equal ratios—Peppermint-thyme –rosemary-sage-savoury-cinnamon bark-clove –myrrh—balm of gilead-oregano –ratios can be as strong or as weak as you like—1 tsp—1 table 1oz –it should be all equal starting out I would go 1 tsp of each–add this to red wine 1 ½ cup and allow to blend for 10 -15 minutes—strain then add to glass container—use 1 tablespoon as is or juice beets and add 1 cup of beets to 1 tablespoon of this remedy—and to add another twist—add iodine ( 1-2 drops) colloidal gold 1-4 drops and colloidal silver depending on strength use 3 drops or less per ½ oz usage will see a good effect do this 2-3 times a day- after a short period of time you may notice a increase resistance to pathogens and feel an increase level of endurance and strength —An alternative would be to do this in fresh beet juice and add the same ratio and add 1 oz of alcohol—blend for 10 minutes and strain—the results are quick–You can combo each of them ( the 2 recipes)




take bees wax and melt to get 4-6 oz ( now if you can not afford this then use the preserving jar wax paraffin for this you will be ok for the allotted time you will be using it ) take the essential oil of citronella—lemon grass- and thuja –Any essential oils will be effective these I am displaying to get you started ) heat the wax using a glass jar and a pot—you will fill the pot with water and then add the glass jar to it and add the wax ratio 2:1 wax and oil ( any oil will do I used grapseed for my use )once melted then take jar out and insert finger in jar after it cools a bit– once cooled then apply to problem areas- and re apply to the same area—-The idea is to trap the heat and increase it by layering on the wax—causing the oils and the essential oils to penetrate more effectively—this will cause a deeper penetration of heat an as a result it may draw out of the skin issue that may have been lingering or trapped inside—and will have a restorative effect and regenerating impact on the skin






[U1]AND this is the lunacy of all these health gurus telling you to drink in 7-8 glasses of water a day—you would flush out of your system magnesium iodine and salt and calcium that would regulate fluoride from natural sources —with this overloading you would displace life giving minerals and nutrients for fluoride—then you would need lithium for bipolar due to the fact that iodine has been displaced by the fluoride causingthis dysfuntion–not to mention the bone degeneration that so many women are suffering today as a result of the overloading of flouride
[U2]Store bought juices—soft drinks and beverages—this is why Reverse osmosis and Distilled water products are best to utilize
[U3]THIS IS INSANITY–we won’t grow them in the USA due to the fact that it might just be a tad controversial but instead we will go to a depressed economy like PEI in canada produce the eggs there and then send them off to be riased in panama where thre is a non issue with GMO’s and then return them for sale in America or Canada???? am I the only one seeing this ?

Chemtrail Letter

Luca forwarded your e-mail to me and I wanted to try and give you some answers to your questions. To begin with, WE (Arizonans) must deal with this on a state level by passing legislation that prohibits ANY kind of chemtrail spraying over the skies in Arizona. We are a sovereign state and can take that action. If the Feds don’t like it – Tough!!! The next thing is we must get Evergreen Air investigated. They are located in the old Marana Air Park and it is believed that they are one of the private companies that have a contract to spray this “crap” on us that also falls into our water, plants, trees and soil. I gave Sheriff Babeu (from Pinal County – that is where Evergreen Air is located) a packet with the DVD, “What In The World Are They Spraying” and a letter from me requesting him to investigate Evergreen Air at the old Marana Air Park. This was last Friday evening and I have not heard back from him as yet. Many of us that are involved in this critical issue are getting our blood tested for barium and aluminum. Those that have already gotten their results back have extremely high levels of both metals, way above the “safe” level. It won’t matter what kind of legislation gets passed at the Capital IF we are all sick with health problems that are coming from this spraying.—-Judy, I feel bad to smoother you with all this information but there is so much to this issue and our very lives are at stake. Haven’t you noticed how much harder it is for so many people to focus or to remember and the epidemic increase of alzheimers along with all the breathing and respiratory problems people are experiencing is rampant. Our son, Jeff, has worked at Banner Baywood Hospital for nearly 10 years now and he recently told us that the hospital is absolutely overflowing with people coming in with the problems I just mentioned. He said it is the worse he has ever seen it. Either “they” are spraying more or “they” are putting more “crap” in the spray. At any rate, we are all getting sick and our ability to think and reason is fast waning. This is all planned and we must put a stop to it. Please, please take time to check this information out, even thought I realize you are up to your eyeballs with work – I promise this is critical. If you have any questions or anything I can help you with, Judy, just call me (928-532-1182 home or 480-734-1954 cell). I will even drive down to the Capital if we need to talk in person. Bless you for all you are trying to do to hold the line when we have “brain-dead” legislators you must work with. I was appalled when I saw the vote for the nullification legislation in the Senate go down yesterday. What a bunch of uninformed, dumbed down creations of the public school system. OK, I will try and get off my soap box and hope you will forgive me for inundating you with so much information………..Karen



Antimicrobials used in home remediation follow a variety of chemistry and functions. One common method of mold remediation utilizes Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking soda) as a blasting medium much in the way that sand is used to blast (clean) surfaces under the propulsion of compressed air. This ‘Soda Blasting’ makes a large cloud of dust that is pH Alkalai and its residue that permeates the wood and painted surfaces is also naturally antimicrobial as a result of the high pH and the presence of Sodium Bicarbonate. If used alone, repeated wetting can wash away the Sodium Bicarbonate residue and mold can return to the materials if the water source is not managed. Dry ice (frozen Carbon Dioxide (CO2)) is also used as a blasting agent where clean-up is more restrictive (i.e. attics) and while the dry ice blasting leaves no antimicrobial residue, it does prep the blasted surface to receive one as a secondary step. One popular, professional anti-microbial (Serum) is often applied after or without blasting by soda or dry ice and in one of its variants, is a mix of Hydrogen Peroxide and thin surface coating that neutralizes the mold (making it non-viable) and encapsulating the surface to prevent spore release. Other anti-microbial surface treatments typically contain variants of metals known to suppress mold growth; i.e. pigments or solutions involving Copper, Silver, Zinc or other metals (some of which can be toxic to humans if improperly applied). Most antimicrobial solutions are professionally applied and are not sold to the public.

Many people use either white vinegar or laundry bleach as an inexpensive anti-microbial solution. These liquids are best used in combination and they can be safely combined. When combined in equal amounts (i.e. 2 cups bleach + 2 cups vinegar in 2 gallons of warm water + 2 drops of dish soap), these make a solution known as “Acidified Bleach” and it is considerably more effective as an antimicroboial and as a disinfectant. On porous foundation surfaces, a secondary step of scrubbing with Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) or Spic-N-Span is capable of leaving behind a phosphate or carbonate reside that will be antimicrobial. The key to successful foundation cleaning with longer-lasting results hinges on leaving the cleaner residue on the wall and force-drying the area with a fan to drive off the water. Long-term success requires that the water source be corrected and that the area’s relative humiidity be kept as far below 54% as possible.

Antimicrobials and paints – Kitchen and Bath paint formulations are often manufactured with the understanding that these areas are often cleaned and may experience elevated humidity levels from bathing/cooking. As a result, leading manufacturers often design Kitchen and Bath formulations to be less porous, more scrubable, and often, the paint formulation is adjusted to be more antimicrobial than other interior paints. During color mixing, some stores also offer the option of buying and adding an antimicrobial packet to the paint as a booster. It is ill-advised to use a normal latex paint on a foundation since this naturally moist area will readily cause mold to grow on latex. Foundation painting should be done with products designed for that purpose and when applied over virgin masonry, these products (i.e. DryLok by United Gilsonite Labs) perform very well


A viricide is a chemical or herbal antiseptic which reliably deactivates or destroys viruses, either inside or outside the body. Natural viricides include garlic, oregano, ginseng, onions, echinacea, goldenseal, chamomile, shiitake, schizandra and St. John’s wort. Antivirals also can be found in essential oils of various herbs, such as basil oil, orange oil, lemon oil, eucalyptus oil, and sandalwood oil and their constituents


Essential oils-Inactivating Food Borne Pathogens
The antimicrobial properties of 21 plant essential oils and two essences were investigated against five food-borne pathogens, Campylobacter jejuni, Salmonella enteriditis, Escherichia coli, Staphylococus aureus and Listeria monocytogenes. The oils of bay, cinnamon, clove and thyme were the most inhibitory, each having a bacteriostatic concentration of 0.075% or less against all five pathogens. ( A. Smith-Palmer, J. Stewart and L. Fyfe. Antimicrobial properties of plant essential oils and essences against five important food-borne pathogens. Letters in Applied Microbiology 1998. 26. 118-122)–Many essential oils are included in pharmacopoeias as having antimicrobial activity, including:

Cinnamon oil
Clove oil – stomatology etc.
Eucalyptus oil
Oregano oil
Lavender oil
Leleshwa oil
Lemon oil
Lemon myrtle oil
Mint oil – in medicine,
Neem oil
Nigella sativa (Black cumin) oil
Onion oil (Allium cepe) – phytoncides, in phytotherapy
Peppermint oil
Sideritis or Greek Mountain Tea
Tea tree oil –
Thyme oil
