Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.”
Foods Containing B17 (Nitrilosides)
Vitamin B17 appears in abundance in untamed nature. Because B17 is bitter to the taste, in man’s attempt to improve tastes and flavors for his own pleasure, he has eliminated bitter substances like B17 by selection and cross-breeding. It can be stated as a general rule that many of the foods that have been domesticated still contain the vitamin B17 in that part not eaten by modem man, such as the seeds in apricots. Listed below is an evaluation of some of the more common foods. Keep in mind that these are averages only and that specimens vary widely depending on variety, locale, soil, and climate.

Vitamin B-17 is one of the main sources of food in cultures such as the Eskimos, the Hunzas, the Abkasians and many more. Did you know that within these tribes there has never been a reported case of cancer? According to Dr. Krebs, we need a minimum of 100 mg of vitamin B-17 (the equivalent of about seven apricots seeds) too nearly guarantee a cancer free life. Foods that contain vitamin B-17 are as follows:
KERNELS OR SEEDS OF FRUIT: The highest concentration of vitamin B-17 to be found in nature, aside from bitter almonds. Apple, apricot, cherry, nectarine, peach, pear, plum, prune.
BEANS: broad (Vicia faba), burma, chickpeas, lentils (sprouted), lima, mung (sprouted), Rangoon, scarlet runner.
NUTS: Bitter almond, macadamia, cashew.
BERRIES: Almost all wild berries. Blackberry, chokeberry, Christmas berry, cranberry, elderberry, raspberry, strawberry.
SEEDS: Chia, flax, sesame.
GRASSES: Acacia, alfalfa (sprouted), aquatic, Johnson, milkweed, Sudan, minus, wheat grass, white dover.
GRAINS: oat groats, barley, brown rice, buckwheat groats, chia, flax, millet, rye, vetch, wheat berries.
MISCELLANEOUS: bamboo shoots, fuschia plant, sorghum, wild hydrangea, yew tree (needles, fresh leaves).
Two rules of thumb: According to Dr. Krebs, the basic concept is that sufficient daily B-17 may be obtained by following either of two suggestions:
First, eating all the B-17-containing fruits whole (seeds included), but not eating more of the seeds by themselves than you would be eating if you ate them in the whole fruit. Example: if you eat three apples a day, the seeds in the three apples are sufficient B-17. You would not eat a pound of apple seeds.—Second, one peach or apricot kernel per 10 lbs of body weight is believed to be more than sufficient as a normal safeguard in cancer prevention, although precise numbers may vary from person to person in accordance with individual metabolism and dietary habits. A 170-lb man, for example, might consume 17 apricot or peach kernels per day and receive a biologically reasonable amount of Vitamin B-17.—And two important notes: Certainly, you can consume too much of anything. Too many kernels or seeds, for example, can be expected to produce unpleasant side effects. These natural foods should be consumed in biologically rational amounts (no more than 30 to 35 kernels per day).—High concentrations of B-17 are obtained by eating the natural foods in their raw or sprouting stage. This does not mean that moderate cooking and other tampering will destroy the B-17 content. Foods cooked at a temperature sufficient for a Chinese dinner, for example, will not lose their B-17 content.
Peru Approves 10 Year Ban On GM Crops, Brazil Speeds Up Approvals
Submitted by Lois Rain on June 9, 2011 – 10:31 pm No Comment
Bolivia is the main land standing between Peru and a Roundup-Ready Paraguay. Despite South American territories jumping on the GM crop bandwagon, Peru has issued a 10-year moratorium on all GM planting in an effort to preserve their biodiversity. This temporary ban includes prevention of GMO imports, cultivation, breeding and production. Some UN legislators opposed the ban, concluding that GM food is already consumed and can cover food needs better as the sales are greater than organic[U1]. Meanwhile, Brazil’s vote to approve commercial application of a GM bean variety is expected shortly. Without much testing or proof of crop worth, the idea is to speed up evaluations and approvals, in an attempt to resist golden mosaic virus. A couple weeks ago, HFA reported on the deaths and sickness resulting from the vast unhindered spraying in Paraguay and other parts of South America. With soy becoming a lucrative “green gold” crop and apparent economy booster, it’s a relief to see Peru taking a stand.

1.PLENARY SESSION OF THE CONGRESS APPROVED MORATORIUM OF TEN YEARS FOR THE ENTRANCE OF TRANSGENIC
SOURCE: Andian, Peru
AUTHOR: Machine translation of the Spanish text
SUMMARY: “The Plenary Session of the Congress, approved the opinion of the law project that declares a moratorium of ten years that prevents the import of Genetically Modified Organisms on the national territory for cultivation, breeding or of any transgenic production.”
Lima, jun. 07 (ANDINA). The Plenary Session of the Congress, approved the opinion of the law project that declares a moratorium of ten years that prevents the import of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) on the national territory for cultivation, breeding or of any transgenic production. It was sustained by the president of the Agrarian Commission, Aníbal Huerta (PAP), who declared that in the face of the danger that can arise from the use of the biotechnology a moratorium must be approved to take care of our biodiversity. It received the endorsement of congressmen Elizabeth Leon (BPCD), Franklin Sanchez (PAP), Mauritius Mulder (PAP), Oswaldo Luizar (BPCD), Jorge of Castillo (PAP), Oswaldo de la Cruz (GPF), Luis Wilson (PAP), Yonhy Lescano (AP), Aldo Estrada (UPP), Hilda Guevara (PAP), Gloria Branches (BPDC) and Maria Sumire (GPN). From different viewpoints, they agreed in the defense of the national biodiversity due to our greater climatic diversity, but they differed with regard to the moratorium. Congressman Alejandro Rebaza (PAP), made some precisions to the opinion and, like the colleagues Sanchez and Estrada, proposed a technical commission of prevention and investigation that issues a report in two years. The legislators Raul Castro (UN) and Juan Carlos Eguren (UN) expressed themselves against the moratorium, because they considered that already we consumed transgenic products and that the doors to biotechnology could not be closed because the transgenic production, that is necessary for covering the food needs, has 70% more sale than the organic production[U2]. The parliamentarian José Saldaña (AN) remembered that the biologists have asked to file the project in debate because already exists a law on the matter, whereas legislator Yaneth Cajahuanca (GPN) suggested to leave the project for the next session. On the other hand, congressmen Luis Giampietri (PAP) and Édgard Núñez (PAP) said that it is not possible to close the doors to science and that it is possible to decided on a prudential moratorium of five years. Finally, the president of the Commission of Andean Towns, Washington Zeballos (BPCD), informed on the modifications to the opinion and that the term of the moratorium would have to be of ten years. The proposal was approved by 56 votes to favor, zero against and two abstentions and exonerated from second voting by 50 votes to favor, four against and three abstentions. The approved norm establishes a moratorium of ten years, determines as competent authority of the subject to the Ministry of the Environemnt and creates a Technical Commission of Evaluation and Prevention of Risks of Use of GMOs, that in two years will have to issue a report on the subject.
2.Brazilian commission changes its internal statutes to speed up approval of GM crops and hasten the release of modified beans
Update from the GM-Free Brazil Campaign
Brazil | Rio de Janeiro | June 07 2011
On May 17th a public hearing was held in Brasilia to discuss an application for commercial release of the first genetically modified bean variety. Beans are part of Brazil’s staple diet, consumed daily by most of the population. The new variety was developed by Embrapa (the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation) for resistance to the golden mosaic virus and is already just waiting for commercial authorization from CTNBio (National Biosafety Technical Commission, the official body responsible for evaluating and authorizing GM crops).—The hearing was held at the head offices of Embrapa itself, the state company making the application. This unprecedented event raised the prospect of CTNBio adopting the procedure of ‘consulting society’ at the premises of all applicant companies, with, who knows, the next hearing being held at Monsanto’s head office. The president of CTNBio, Edilson Paiva, claimed they had been unable to find another auditorium available in Brasilia, hence the choice.–The representative for the NGO Terra de Direitos questioned the confidentiality granted to various sections of Embrapa’s report. CTNBio withheld more information than the areas requested by the company, a fact likely to hinder monitoring of the product’s impacts after its commercial release. In this case access to all the data was denied even to the member of the Commission responsible for reporting on the evaluation process.—Field studies were undertaken in just three localities over a two-year period. Interpreted generously this mean that the environmental impacts of the technology were tested in two biomes at most. Brazil’s legislation requires studies to be undertaken in all biomes where the modified plant might be grown. As the Terra de Direitos representative pointed out, Embrapa is applying for unrestricted release of the new GM bean variety throughout the country, despite the lack of adequate data.—AS-PTA’s representative also questioned the absence of data on the potential impacts of genetic modification on the common bean varieties already consumed in Brazil. All the tests were carried out on a single type of bean, rather than those consumed in the country on a daily basis. At the same time, various parts of Embrapa’s report themselves state that the test results vary according to the type of bean receiving the transgene. Despite these tests not being conducted, the application is for release of the GM variety for subsequent incorporation into other bean plants.
Even more revealingly, only two of the 22 transgenic events generated for resistance to the mosaic virus actually worked. As the evaluation report states, it remains unknown why these produced the expected results while the other 20 events did not. Indeed the report concludes that more studies are needed to understand the transgene in question. In other words, when in doubt, release it. This abandonment of the Precautionary Principle was highlighted at the hearing by AS-PTA.
The representative from CONSEA (the National Nutritional and Food Security Council) stressed that the human right to healthy and adequate food will be achieved through agroecology, not through the development of GM seeds. He cited experiments run by Embrapa over an eight-year period that showed considerable success in controlling the bean plant mosaic virus through organic farming methods and without any loss of productivity.———CTNBio approves changes to rules to speed up commercial releases———The day after the public hearing on the GM bean application, the monthly meeting of CTNBio also began in Brasilia. Opening the plenary session, the Secretary of Research and Development Policies and Programs of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Carlos Nobre, emphasized the importance of the Commission’s work and the need for risk evaluation to be based on the Precautionary Principle, much to the incredulity of many of those listening to him. As soon as the Secretary left the plenary session, the president of CTNBio announced that the vote would be taken on changing the body’s statutes. But after hearing the first question, he immediately announced that the process would be sped up to avoid the ‘obstruction principle.’———The regulations were set to be altered at the meeting following a court ruling that obliged CTNBio to introduce more transparent procedures and allow access to the information received for evaluation, except for data covered confidential business information.———The members of the Commission used the chance to alter the statutes to approve changes to the ritual of the evaluation process. They shortened the evaluation periods, meaning that GMOs releases will be even quicker in practice, reinforcing CTNBio’s image as a rubber-stamping institution that has so far never refused a request for commercial release.[U3]—The vote to approve the release of GM beans is set to take place shortly.

Its hard to forget the FDA raids during the era of the passing of the
Dietary Supplement Bill to protect vitamins and herbs. This culminated in
the creation of the FDA Holocaust Museum in Hollywood, Florida.
“The FDA serves as the pharmaceutical industry’s watchdog which can be called upon to attack and destroy a potential competitor, under the guise of protecting the public.”
Racketeering in Medicine,The Suppression of Alternatives by James P. Carter,M.D., Dr. P.H.
Here is the actual letter from the Department of Health & Human Services, dated May 19, l998 to Mr. Rhodes of the Stevita Co.
Mr. Oscar D. Rhodes, President
Stevita co., Inc.
7650 Highway 287, Suite 100
Arlington, Texas 76017
Dear Mr. Rhodes:
This letter is written in response to the May 13, l998 letter by Ms.
Jaylene M. Sarracino, Esq., addressed to the attention of Ms. Stella Notzon
of this office, on the subject of further detainment of Stevita co. stevia
products under Entry Numbers 125-0981854-3 & 125-0981567-1.
Ms. Sarracino’s letter documents a telephone conversation with Ms. Notzon
on the subject of cookbooks and other publications used in the marketing of
your stevia products. In her letter, Ms. Sarracino states that on May
14, l998, Stevita Co. will discontinue the sale of any publications, and
will sever all links to web-site information referencing the questionable
use of stevia products. She indicates the stevia products will be marketed
strictly as dietary supplements with only the labeling currently appearing
on the product containers.
The agency appreciates Stevita Co’s expressed intention to comply with the
law. However, a current inventory must be taken by an investigator of this
office, who will also be available TO WITNESS DESTRUCTION OF THE COOKBOOKS,
LITERATURE AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS for the purpose of verifying compliance.
Additionally, your stevia products currently in distributor and retail
channels with the offending cookbooks, literature and other publications
continue to be in violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (the
Act). These products are unapproved food additives in violation of Section
409, and adulterated within the meaning of Section 402 (a) (2) (c) of the
Act. We are prepared to pursue further regulatory action against these
products should they continue to be adulterated in distribution. The inspection of your facility on April 27, l998 conducted jointly by investigators of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Texas Department of Health, along with visits to your consignees, documented your firm’s continued marketing of your stevia products as conventional foods accompanied by OFFENDING LITERATURE, COOKBOOKS, AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS, in violation of the Act as cited in the FDA warning letter of March 6, 1998. Further regulatory action will be considered against new shipments of stevia products marketed in this manner, as well as against those parent lots from which the adulterated products are being marketed. If you have any questions regarding this letter, you may call me at 214 655-5318, ext. 517.

Stevia is a perennial shrub, the extracts of which have been used for
centuries as a safe, natural sweetener by people in Paraguay and Brazil. Stevia is 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar. After great pressure by
consumers the FDA finally approved it only as a dietary supplement and
lifted the embargo. The FDA with strong loyalties to Monsanto actually
forbid this food source to come into the country. Zolton P. Rona, M.D.,
MSc said in Health Naturally, August/Sept l996: “In l991, the FDA banned
stevia imports for use in foods, reportedly at the request of an aspartame
manufacturer.” That says it all – it appears the FDA and Monsanto do not
want competition with their neurotoxin, NutraSweet. — In a letter to Dr. Kesslser of the FDA from William R. Pendergast (Arent Fox Kintner Plotkin & Kahn) dated October 21, l991 about Stevia, he said:”American Herbal Products Association believes that FDA’s position is incorrect in that stevia leaf is not a food additive within the meaning of Sec. 201 (s), 21 U.S.C. 321 (s) because it is exempt from that definition by reason of its “common use in food” prior to l958. For that reason, FDA approval pursuant to Sec 409, 21 U.S.C. 348 of the Act is not required and,
indeed, AGPA does not seek such approval here. AHPA seeks only FDA’s acquiescence in the marketing of stevia containing foods in interstate commerce, such acquiescence based upon the facts, data and legal issues as presented herein.” The sad thing is that Stevia is a wonderful herb that helps in the metabolism of sugar, and has been used to aid diabetics; and it doesn’t keep blood sugar out of control. On the other hand, aspartame is a deadly neurotoxin, a drug that interacts with other drugs, and precipitates diabetes. Monsanto funds the American Diabetic Association and American Dietetic Association who even admit that Monsanto (NutraSweet) writes their material. Aspartame is a molecule composed of three components, aspartic acid, phenylalanine and methanol (wood alcohol). Methanol converts to formaldehyde and formic acid and causes metabolic acidosis. The phenylalanine in aspartame at 50% lowers the seizure threshold of the brain and depletes serotonin. Phenylalanine and aspartic acid are two of three amino acids that cannot be isolated from the other amino acids in protein and go beyond the blood brain barrier causing brain damage of varying degrees. H. J. Roberts, M.D., Board Certified and Recertified Internist (and diabetic specialist) has now declared Aspartame to be a Disease and Worldwide epidemic. He says that in diabetics aspartame destroys the optic nerve, keeps blood sugar out of control and causes patients to sometimes go into convulsions. By the FDA’s own report, aspartame triggers 92 documented symptoms from four types of seizures to coma and death. The FDA has consistently fought against the healthy Stevia Leaf. In a country founded on freedom you can go to the library and buy a book on how
to make a bomb, or buy trashy pornography, but its illegal to tell the consumer public the history of the Stevia Leaf, and the fact that it is a sweetener and has health advantages. Yet it is perfectly alright for the FDA to approve a chemical poison, aspartame, for human consumption, masquerading as an additive. And it was perfectly alright for them to turn a deaf ear when they were petitioned to ban aspartame in l986 by the Community Nutrition Institute because consumers were going blind from the
wood alcohol. The FDA in this letter speaks of compliance with law. Yet, in l985 their own FDA toxicologist, the late Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress that aspartame violated Delaney Amendment because it triggered brain tumors in lab animals. His last words were: “And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?” While the FDA speaks of adulteration have they not perverted the facts on aspartame? The brochure that the FDA sends out on aspartame, pure propaganda , is answered and rebutted on http://www.dorway.com In August l995 the FDA unveiled a program to push pharmacists to prepare special patient information leaflets for every prescription they dispense. Yet, they do not consider it necessary to inform the consumer public that the DRUG aspartame has 92 documented symptoms and interacts with other drugs including monoamine oxidase inhibitors, alpha-methyldopa and L-dihydroxphenylalanine. -Just today, June 23 in the New York Times it says: “For the second time in two weeks, the Food and Drug Administration has taken the rare step of pulling a prescription drug, ,,, The drug, Duract, a painkiller manufactured by Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories of St. Davids, Pa has caused a dozen cases of serious liver failure since it went on the market last July; four patients died and eight required liver transplants.” Yet aspartame has caused more deaths and more symptoms and more diseases. Because it destroys the central nervous system (mimics MS), the brain (is escalating Alzheimers and other neurological horrors) and the optic nerve, it may be that aspartame has caused more deaths than many wars. Redux and FenPhen were banned because they were causing cardiac problems and death. Aspartame causes cardiac problems and death. These three drugs alter serotonin. Did they react together and cause death? On June 8 Posicor was banned because it turned out to be potentially lethal when used with a long list of other drugs. Aspartame also interacts with drugs and potentially lethal, yet it is not banned!
In discussing the dangers of NutraSweet in Assault On Medical Freedom, P.
Joseph Lisa wrote: “These complaints all came to the FDA’s attention.
There were thousands of them. Yet the FDA did nothing to take this
apparently dangerous product off the market. In contrast the FDA took
rather heavy-handed and drastic actions against Herbalife for fewer than
six complaints, according to the California Food and Drug files.” Upon signing the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act into law, President Clinton said: “The passage of this legislation speaks to the determination of the legislators involved and I appreciate their work. But most important, it speaks to the diligence with which an unofficial army of nutritionally conscious people worked democratically to change the laws in an area deeply important to them.” But the battle is not over to save dietary supplements G. M. Wolverton, M.D. in warning all patients off of NutraSweet said: “When you get the situation we now have in Washington with vast reaching bureaus
that are given awesome power (such as FDA has) “Government,” as George
Washington said, “is not reason; government is not justice. Like fire, it
is a dangerous servant and fearful master!” Dr. James Bowen in a statement to the FDA many years ago about aspartame said: .. “The recent revelations about the problems surrounding generic drug approvals are compelling evidence of what happens when an agency considers itself above the law in dealing with these matters. In my opinion, this has resulted in the mass poisoning of the American public as well as seventy-plus countries in the rest of the world. Watching FDA officials walk through the “revolving door” and be further rewarded by being promoted o other positions of high public responsibility is clear evidence of a government out of control. Twenty-six questions to the FDA listed on the DORway web site remain
unanswered going on two years. Congressman Newt Gingrich continues to demand these answers but FDA knows the facts would remove the neurotoxin, aspartame, from the marketplace. It is quite evident that neither the FDA or Monsanto want competition from the healthy Stevia leaf.

Safe Prescribing Information for Children in Canada Often Hard to Find
ScienceDaily (June 13, 2011) — Accurate, safe prescribing information for children is often unavailable to doctors in Canada because pharmaceutical companies will not disclose information to Health Canada, states an editorial in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal). Health professionals in Canada as well as other countries such as Japan and Australia, unlike their colleagues in the United States and Europe, do not have access to the same body of evidence regarding pediatric dosing.–“As a consequence, Canadian children and youth may fall victim to medication errors and mistreatment simply because of limited access to information about pediatric drugs,” writes Dr. Paul Hébert, Editor-in-Chief, CMAJ, with coauthors.–Many drugs in the US that have specific pediatric labeling are described in Canada as having “insufficient evidence.”-“Children are not little adults,” state the authors. “Pediatric labelling should go well beyond simply adjusting adult doses to a pediatric weight, because this is inappropriate and potentially dangerous.”–They cite as an example the increased suicide risk from early off-label prescribing of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors guided only by data in adults.–While the pharmaceutical industry maintains that pediatric markets are small and not profitable, the US and Europe have introduced financial incentives to encourage research in children. [U4]The US Pediatric Research Equity Act requires drug companies to conduct studies and submit results to the US Food and Drug Administration for drugs they expect will be used in children. “In line with recommendations of the World Health Organization, we need international harmonization of laws to ensure that appropriate incentives are in place to promote pediatric research necessary for pediatric indications and prescribing information,[U5]” write the authors. They conclude with a call to politicians to enact strict legislation similar to that in the US to protect Canadian children. –Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by Canadian Medical Association Journal, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS.–Journal Reference-Bob Peterson, Paul C.

Dairy peptides significantly decrease blood pressure, British Journal of Nutrition paper
29 Aug 2005
Dairy peptides are effective in the reduction of systolic blood pressure (SBP) after three and six weeks of consumption, according to a new study published this month in the British Journal of Nutrition.1 The authors of the paper conclude that a functional food, enriched with the dairy peptides tested in the study, could assist in the prevention of hypertension in people with blood pressure that is above normal. –Today’s single blinded, placebo controlled study was conducted amongst 131 subjects with high-normal blood pressure or mild hypertension, to investigate the efficacy of hydrolised casein containing two dairy peptides, Isoleucine-Proline-Proline (IPP) and Valine-Proline-Proline (VPP),[U6] in reducing blood pressure. This active ingredient, known as AmealPeptideTM,is added to a new mini drink launched under the Flora/ Becel pro.activ brand, targeted at people following a healthy diet to control their blood pressure. –Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is an established independent risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD), heart and kidney failure, and stroke and small reductions in blood pressure can have significant benefits at a population level. Studies have shown that small decreases in SBP (3-5 mmHg), are associated with a decrease in the risk for stroke of around 15 percent and coronary heart disease of around 10 percent.2-8 –The study demonstrated that volunteers consuming a daily dose of IPP and VPP of 1.8, 2.5 or 3.6mg experienced a dose dependent decrease in SBP compared to placebo. In subjects receiving 1.8mg of IPP and VPP, a significant decrease in SBP was observed at six weeks, and in subjects receiving either 2.5 or 3.6mg, a significant decrease in SBP was recorded at both three and six weeks.1 The antihypertensive effect was greater in subjects with mild hypertension than in subjects with high normal blood pressure.1 –“The results of this study further expand the base of clinical evidence on the effects of dairy peptides, and IPP and VPP in particular, on blood pressure “, comments Seiichi Mizuno, lead investigator of the study.” This study demonstrates that a functional food containing IPP and VPP as an active ingredient could help to prevent hypertension in people with a blood pressure above normal. ” — –Over 20 human clinical trials with dairy peptides conducted over the past 10 years have demonstrated a blood pressure lowering effect for dairy drinks containing IPP & VPP. 1,9-24 European studies have shown reductions of up to 7mmHg for systolic and 4 mmHg for diastolic blood pressure. 19-23 –It is believed that dairy peptides work by inhibiting the action of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE).24 When ACE is inhibited, the formation of angiotensin II is reduced, vasoconstriction is less and blood pressure is lowered. It has long been known that inhibition of ACE can lead to blood pressure reduction.25,26 –. This is typically people who have high normal to mild hypertension but who are not on medication.
About the study
The study was a randomised, single blinded, placebo controlled study conducted over an 8 week period, consisting of a two week pre-treatment period and a 6 week treatment period. Subjects ingested two tablets containing 0, 1.8, 2.5 or 3.6mg of IPP and VPP at breakfast for 6 weeks. Measurements of blood pressure, pulse rate, body weight, standing height and a medical examination were performed at -2, 0, 3 and 6 weeks. –A significant decrease in SBP (- 5.8 mmHg) was observed in the group receiving 1.8 mg of VPP and IPP at 6 weeks (P<0.01) when compared to the value at week 0. Significant decreases were also observed in the groups receiving 2.5 mg and 3.6mg at 3 weeks (- 3.4 and – 4.1 mmHg, P<0.05 and P<0.05) and 6 weeks (- 6.2 and – 9.3 mmHg, P<0.001 and P<0.0001) when compared to the value at week 0. A significant difference between the placebo group and the peptide group was observed at a dosage of 3.6 mg (P<0.001).
About IPP and VPP
Dairy peptides are small peptides that are formed when casein (milk protein) is broken down into smaller pieces. IPP and VPP are two such peptides, and can be manufactured using a naturally obtained enzyme preparation to break casein down into hydrolysed casein powder. They can also be made by fermentation, where, instead of an enzyme preparation being used to break down the milk protein, lactic acid bacteria are used instead[U7]. Today’s study tested IPP and VPP manufactured using the enzyme preparation, or Aspergillus oryzae protease.
Blood pressure level is optimal if systolic blood pressure is lower than 120mmHg and diastolic blood pressure is lower than 80mmhg. Hypertension is defined as a systolic blood pressure level higher than 140 mmHg and / or a diastolic blood pressure higher than 90mmHg.

When Warming Up for the Cycling Race, Less Is More
ScienceDaily (June 16, 2011) — Coaches, physiologists and athletes alike will attest to the importance of warming up before athletic competition. Warming up increases muscle temperature, accelerates oxygen uptake kinetics and increases anaerobic metabolism, all of which enhance performance. However, the question of how long and strenuous a warm-up should be is more contentious, with some in the sports community advocating longer warm-ups and others espousing shorter ones. Now researchers at the University of Calgary Human Performance Laboratory in Calgary, Alberta, Canada have found evidence indicating that less is more.–In a study comparing the effects of a traditional, intense warm-up with those of a shorter, less strenuous warm-up on the performance of 10 highly trained track cyclists, the researchers found that the shorter warm-up produced less muscle fatigue yet more peak power output.[U1] The findings are published in the Journal of Applied Physiology. The study was conducted by Elias K. Tomaras and Brian R. MacIntosh.
The Long and Short of It
The intensity of traditional, longer warm-ups has been thought to offer competitive athletes an edge by promoting a process called post-activation potentiation (PAP). In PAP,[U2] brief bouts of strenuous physical activity produce a biochemical change in muscle cells that can enhance muscle contractile response. The phenomenon usually lasts from 5 to 10 minutes. However, as the researchers note, fatigue can decrease muscle contractile response. Therefore, the team focused analysis on muscle contractile response as well as on another key component of a cyclist’s success, peak power output.–In the study, cyclists participated in two warm-ups. A longer, traditional warm-up began with 20 minutes of cycling that gradually increased in intensity until the cyclists reached 95 percent of their maximal heart rates. This general warm-up was followed by four sprints at 8-minute intervals. The entire warm-up lasted approximately 50 minutes total. The shorter, experimental warm-up included a shorter initial ride that increased in intensity until the cyclists reached only 70 percent of their maximal heart rates. This warm-up ended with only one sprint and lasted approximately 15 minutes.–The researchers used specific tests to measure the cyclists’ muscle contractile response and peak power output before, during and after the warm-ups. Although they theorized that both warm-ups would elicit PAP, they also theorized that the traditional warm-up would generate enough fatigue to counteract PAP[U3], whereas the experimental warm-up might not. They found that although muscle contractile response decreased more after the traditional warm-up, indicating greater fatigue, there was a decrease in contractile response after both warm-ups. This, according to Tomaras, a co-author, “indicates that an even shorter warm-up might be better for athletes who want to tap into PAP.”
The shorter warm-up permitted better performance, as well. Peak power output was 6.2 percent higher and total work was 5 percent higher after the experimental warm-up than after the traditional warm-up, results the researchers say are significant, and could make a substantial difference in competitive events.
Implications–The fitness community has embraced PAP as a competitive strategy in recent years. As word spreads about PAP’s benefits, trainers and coaches have attempted to time PAP to coincide with competition. But the Calgary team’s findings suggest too much focus on promoting PAP could be self-defeating, as starting the process requires intense, but tiring, bursts of activity. In their conclusion, the researchers write, “A warm-up that is performed at too high of an intensity for longer than necessary can result in fatigue and impair subsequent athletic performance.”—Instead, according to co-researcher MacIntosh, “the findings suggest that competitive athletes may reap greater rewards from PAP by engaging in less strenuous warm-up than conventional wisdom dictates. A better approach would be to aim for just enough activity to promote PAP without creating fatigue.”–This may be especially true for sprint athletes (cyclists, relay runners, track sprinters, swimmers), whose competition involves several events close together. The researchers conclude, “If warm-up results in fatigue of an athlete and impairs performance in a single subsequent bout of exercise, what impact would it have on multiple performances required on the same day?”–Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by American Physiological Society.–Journal Reference-E. K. Tomaras, B. R. MacIntosh. Less is More: Standard Warm-up Causes Fatigue and Less Warm-up Permits Greater Cycling Power Output. Journal of Applied Physiology, 2011 DOI: 1152/%u200Bjapplphysiol.%u200B00253.%u200B2011
This will apply even more so for those senior athletes who are past 50 or people trying to maintain there body composition—the idea is to train for tone or strength and when you over do it –which is easy to do when you are fatigued from a warm up then this will carry over to the actual routine-then the recovery from a training will take longer as well.
If exercising always as a rule of thumb work with 70-80% capacity—the intensity or duration will determine the result of what one is trying to achieve as well
TOOTH ACHE REMEDIES
These are a few remedies that may offset a toothache
The key to stopping toothache pain is to stop EATING—
–This is usually a sign of overload and poison in the system and sometimes our bodies are telling us to quit loading UP so the lower end can empty out.
When having an “ache” then rest the insides and DO NOT CONSUME SUGAR-STARCH –GRAINS or anything Pasteurized—DO NOT CONSUME SOY or DERIVATIVES OF SOY-CANOLA OR ANY ARTIFICIAL SWEETNERS or SUGAR— HFCS- THIS WILL JUST MAKE IT WORSE
Consume –Antibacterials-AntiFungals-Anti Microbial substances to enhance the lower end to sanitize –and to Clean up the environment –In utilizing some of these remedies You will see swelling and pain disappear—and a normalized impact in the jaw —this would indicate as well the need to change diet and to allow for rest internallyu
Herbs that are Effective
Bay leaf-Thyme- Sage-Savoury-Oregano Clove-Cinnamon-Nutmeg-Cardamon-Black Seed –Garlic-Onion- Pepper—White Willow-Feverfew-
These can be used as a Gargle—a Tea—Food—Tincture—Extract
Can also be used in a mix with either an alcohol or paste to be applied to the area as an immediate Pain killer
Resins and Saps
Bee Propolis-Myrrh- Balm Of Gilead- Frankinsense-
Any Full spectrum Enzyme or even the use of papata enzymes taking 1-3 every 2 hours will as well remove the excesses and reduce swelling and remove the poisons
C1 Onion + 2 Apples Peeled and blended and consumed in 3 oz increments 3 times a day
C1 Beet and 2 Apples Peeled and blended and consumed 3 oz increments 3 times a day
CGarlic-Just peel and consume—or liquify in aloe or honey or wine — Take 1 whole Garlic and add to a blender and add 1 ½ cup of wine and Blend for 5 minutes—then strain and use 1 tsp every hour for the first 4 hours and then reduce to 1 every 2 hours
CClove and Cinnamon- take the essential oils of either clove or cinnamon and add 1-2 drops in a 1 oz container of vodka or any clear base alcohol mix well or blend and then apply a Q-tip and directly swab the area—this will give immediate relief—this can be done with children as well and for those babies teething apply a mix of the essential oil in aloe vera gel By adding 1 drop to 1 oz of the gel and mix thoroughly and apply to the gums to alleviate the pain of a teething child
CParsley and Dandelion and Other Green Drinks ( home made not store bought ) will as well remedy this by increasing blood purifying properties back into the system and increase the enzymes and detox the poisons out
CDrinking Broths with garlic or onion or chives this to will remove the poisons and cause the teeth to recover
CTeas with Galangal will assist and removing poisons from the colon—Any tea that has a good antibacterial content will assist this dramatically using thyme—bay leaf –rosemary as a tea combo will assist—using teas with cinnamon and clove and cardamom will work as well
CFasting—definitely will see the teeth pain subside when nothing is going in
other then fluids—this will flush the poisons causing this activity
FOnce this clears then avoid the sugars and starches and grains and soy and soy derived foods and eliminate canolas out of the diet and no HFCS—No SODA or POP ( especially these since the eat the teeth like battery acid and break down bone density as well allowing toxic fluoride to bind to the skeletal structure and adhese to the system more potentlyE
CEssential Oils Mix essential oils in either a Aloe Vera Gel—Honey—Maple syrup and use internally to clear up the microbes or bacteria or fungi causing the teeth to be in pain—again the ones to use would be the ones with the properties that are strong and effective in this —Thyme 1 drop Peppermint 1 drop Honey 2 – 3 oz-1 oz of brandy or any clear base alcohol that can be consumed ( do not use any alcohol that is non consumable) mix well and use ¼ tsp increments —you can increase the dose of the essential oils in use as you become more familiar with this method—you can as well use bay leaf 1-2 drops with clove 1 drop-and 2 oz of the aloe gel mix well and make a paste in the are or consume as a beverage by adding ¼ tsp in water
§Special Note Get the Book By Jean Valnet The Practice of Aromatherapy—this will enhance your knowledge base in the regard to aromatherapy and essential oil USE—a lot of other books out there are Useless and are more for the Esthetics of aromatherapy then the actual use and some will elaborate on the more esoteric elements which can be at best questionable
Power Drink Recipe—take a green drink you juiced or extracted—add 4-5 oz in a blender—add to it gelaton—1-2 teaspoons or tablespoons ( your discretion)
Add to it if you wish any other element i.e MSM-Colustrum—Vitamins –herbal tea—blend it for about 3 minutes to make sure there is a complete dissolving of the gelaton and a good mixture—drink the remedy—whatever you put into it will be increased in absorption as a result of the gelaton carrying into the system and will have a synergy in repairing the body depending on what you mix with it. — this particular remedy may assist a lot with bone—intestine-stomach-immune—blood- brain-organ replenishment
Here is place where you can access data that is to extensive to email—share the link with your network and as well open up an account and do likewise
This is another format to increase availability to data stream and info
[U1]WOW and this tooka University study to figure this out eh!!! Anyone who trains with any kind of intensity knows this—this would as well apply to those who are working physically hard –never over exert the warm up
[U2] This will be accomplished with even a light warm up especially if you are doing more of an endurance type activities
[U3]Most Definitely unless you have a system that can clear out lactic acid as quick as you produce it this is a reality

This study investigated the effect of Rhodiola rosea L. extract on acquisition and expression of morphine tolerance and dependence in mice. Therefore animals were injected with repeated administration of morphine (10 mg/kg, subcutaneous) twice daily for five or six days, in order to make them tolerant or dependent. Rhodiola rosea L. extract (0, 10, 15 and 20 mg/kg) was administered by the intragastric route 60 min prior to each morphine injection (for acquisition) or prior the last injection of morphine or naloxone on test day (for tolerance or dependence expression, respectively). Morphine tolerance was evaluated by testing its analgesic effect in the tail flick test at the 1st and 5th days. Morphine dependence was evaluated by counting the number of withdrawal signs (jumping, rearing, forepaw tremor, teeth chatter) after naloxone injection (5 mg/kg; intraperitoneal) on the test day (day 6). Results showed that Rhodiola rosea L. extract significantly reduced the expression of morphine tolerance, while it was ineffective in modulating its acquisition. Conversely, Rhodiola rosea L. extract significantly and dose-dependently attenuated both development and expression of morphine dependence after chronic or acute administration. These data suggest that Rhodiola rosea L. may have human therapeutic potential for treatment of opioid addiction.–PMID: 20142299 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

Authors: Mattioli L, Perfumi M
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of a Rhodiola rosea L. extract on the prevention of the development of nicotine dependence and for the reduction of abstinence suffering following nicotine cessation in mice. Dependence was induced in mice by subcutaneous injections of nicotine (2 mg/kg, 4 times/day) for eight days. Spontaneous abstinence syndrome was evaluated 20 h after the last nicotine administration, by analysis of withdrawal signs, as affective (anxiety-like behaviour) and physical (somatic signs and locomotor activity). Rhodiola rosea L. extract was administered orally during nicotine treatment (10, 15 and 20 mg/kg) or during nicotine withdrawal (20 mg/kg). Results show that both affective and somatic signs (head shaking, paw tremors, body tremors, ptosis, jumping, piloerection and chewing) induced by nicotine withdrawal are abolished by administration of Rhodiola rosea L. extract in a dose-dependent fashion, during both nicotine exposure and nicotine cessation. In conclusion, our data encourage additional studies to define the use of R. rosea L. as a therapeutic approach in the treatment of smoking cessation.–PMID: 19939867 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]
African Alliances Challenge Introduction of GM Technology
Civil society and private sector organisations come together to fight
introduction of GM technology. Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji
The recent introduction of GM (genetic modification) technology into Tanzania has prompted local and international campaign groups to join forces in expressing concern for the conservation of agricultural biodiversity, which is crucial for food security and food sovereignty. Groups such as the African Centre for Biodiversity, Action Aid, International Tanzania, Biolands, BioRe, BioSustain, Envirocare, PELUM Tanzania, Swissaid, Eastern & Southern African Small Scale Farmers Forum (ESAFF) and Tanzania Organic Agriculture Movement, formed the Tanzania Alliance for Biodiversity in recent weeks to urge the government to resist pressure from GM companies and stakeholders to relax the strict safety legislation to allow the widespread introduction of GM technologies . One liability clause states that ‘a person who imports, arranges transit, makes use of, releases or places on the market a GMO or product of a GMO shall be strictly liable for any harm caused by such a GMO or product of a GMO’ and that ‘the harm shall be compensated’. In a previously GM-free country, the alliance wants to base the assessment of GM crop safety on the precautionary principle, and state that ‘GM crops or animals are not the solution to poverty and hunger’ in the region. –Currently, Tanzania, along with Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Mali, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Ghana are performing field tests on GM crops; maize and cassava are being tested in Tanzania. The Tanzanian Cotton Board has also approved the introduction of Bt cotton. South Africa, Burkina Faso and Egypt have already started cultivating GM crops. South Africa has experienced problems with crop yields; farmers have reported up
to 80 percent loss in corn production, with GM corn not producing kernels in a proportion of plants. –Monsanto has been expanding into the African continent with support from United States Agency for International Development USAID, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), also founded by the Gates and Rockerfeller Foundations (see  Beware of the “Doubly Green Revolution”, SiS 37) . Bill Gates is a huge proponent of GM biotechnology and has recently invested in 500 000 shares [U1]of the Monsanto stock worth an approximate US$23.1 million. This investment represents a strong conflict of interest between their purported role of ‘alleviating poverty and hunger among small-scale farmers’ and Monsanto’s track record of disregard for the interests and well-being of small farmers around the world. Small scale farm are the largest source food for much of the region.
Old-Fashioned Power Grab? FTCLDF Argues in New Court Brief That FDA Push to Eliminate Raw Milk Amounts to Illegal “Mandate” Forcing Pasteurized Milk on Americans
DateSunday, June 12, 2011 at 05:50PM
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is taking a lot of heat about its undercover investigation and court action against Pennsylvania Amish farmer Daniel Allgyer. The FDA’s number-two , Michael (Son of Monsanto) Taylor, was even asked about the matter at a corporate get-together, where he spouted the expected rhetoric about “doing our public health job” in connection with the legal assault, designed to prevent Allgyer from supplying a food club in Maryland with raw milk.—Michael Taylor of the FDA But Taylor made another interesting remark, noting that the campaign against Allgyer results from a “statutory directive” to the FDA. He presumably was referring to the FDA’s implementation in 1987 of the federal ban on interstate distribution and sale of raw milk (PHS law 1240.61), at the behest of a federal judge the previous year. The judge ruled on a consumer group’s suit, demanding that the FDA put an end to interstate sales of unpasteurized milk. At that time, at least one large producer, Alta Deena, was shipping raw milk from its home base in California to a number of neighboring states.—Now, in a response to the FDA’s brief filed last month arguing that the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund’s legal challenge to the agency’s ban of interstate distribution and sales of raw milk should be dismissed, the FTCLDF maintains that the judge’s 1986 decision ordering the ban was inappropriate on several counts. It notes that the FDA had, ironically, resisted efforts to push it into the interstate ban, and suggests the agency didn’t have the authority even under a judge’s order.—“Not only did the (1986 court decision) substitute its judgment for that of the FDA, it ordered FDA to institute an interstate ban on the sale of raw dairy products under the PHSA (Public Health Services Act) when there is no authority under the PHSA for FDA to regulate ‘interstate commerce.’ Thus, this reinforces the notion that (the court decision) is wrong and is an extreme case of judicial activism.” The FTCLDF brief makes yet a further legal and Constitutional argument challenging the FDA’s effort to eliminate the availability of raw milk. The FTCLDF filed suit last year on behalf of five plaintiffs who were admittedly purchasing raw milk in states where it’s legal, and bringing it back to their home states, where such sales are illegal. The FDA has argued that such interstate transport of raw milk is illegal, but has said it has no immediate intention to enforce such a ban on individual consumers.–The FTCLDF argues that the FDA’s prohibition on interstate shipments of raw milk amounts to a “mandate that if dairy products are going to be purchased, those products must be pasteurized rather than fresh and unprocessed….”The group argues further that it remains legal to consume raw milk in all fifty states, and that Congress has never via any laws governing the regulation of food and drugs granted the FDA the authority to prohibit the interstate shipment or sales of raw milk.—“FDA cannot prohibit citizens from consuming the foods of their choice when it is legal in all 50 states to consume raw milk…Because Congress cannot tell the citizens what dairy products they must consume, neither can the FDA. Thus, FDA exceeded its authority under the FDCA (Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act) and these rules are invalid…”—The ban on transporting raw milk across state lines is invalid, FTCLDF maintains, because “neither the FDCA nor the PHSA give FDA the authority (1) to completely ban citizens from traveling across state lines with legally purchased raw dairy products in their possession, or to mandate the consumption of pasteurized dairy products at the expense of raw dairy products; (2) to designate such legally purchased raw dairy products that are taken across State lines by Plaintiffs as an ‘illness’ or ‘communicable disease’ per se, or (3) to deem misbranded a product that is what it purports to be.”—Even if FDA did have the authority to interfere with raw milk in interstate commerce, “in this case, the raw milk is not being transported across state lines before it is sold. Only after the milk is sold is it taken across state lines, thus, it constitutes an intrastate sale that is not subject to the jurisdiction of the FDCA or the FDA.”—The FTCLDF brief also argues that, by trying to ban interstate shipments of raw milk under the Public Health Services Act, the agency is essentially treating the product as “a communicable disease.” Not very logical. “… a communicable disease is an illness, not an agricultural product that is sold or consumed. If FDA’s argument is accepted, then raw meat, raw chicken, raw eggs or raw produce could be considered a communicable disease.”—The FTCLDF brief concludes by arguing that banning raw milk from interstate shipment by consumers sets a dangerous precedent. “Our country was founded on the notion that we all have inherent, inalienable rights that the government cannot take away from us except by due process. ‘Government of the people, by the people, for the people’ as Abraham Lincoln said. —And FTCLDF asks the court to recognize the rapidly emerging food rights movement. “In this day and age many people, including Plaintiffs, are now eschewing and opting out of the industrial-sized, centralized, subsidized, government-sanctioned food production system. Instead, they are turning toward local farmers who are producing nutrient-dense foods that will restore their health. Although this national ‘food rights’ movement was probably not contemplated by the Founding Fathers, it should now be recognized by this Court as a component of Plaintiffs’ liberty interest in having access to the foods of their choice.”—The FDA has said there isn’t even a “plausible” Constitutional case that can be made for access to particular foods as a right. It’s now in a federal judge’s hands to decide whether the FTCLDF case is dismissed or moves forward.

Sepsis- Leaking Blood Vessels May Be Cause of Infection-Spreading Condition-Research
ScienceDaily (June 22, 2011) — Researchers at St. Michael’s Hospital have put forward a new theory as to what causes sepsis, an often fatal condition that occurs when infection spreads throughout the body. -Leaking blood vessels may actually be a cause of sepsis, rather than a symptom as previously thought[U1], said Dr. Warren Lee.-Dr. Lee’s hypothesis and a review of recent research on sepsis were published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.-Sepsis kills about 1,400 people a day worldwide and is the second-leading cause of death in intensive care units in Canada. Despite intense research, the death rate remains high, between 30 and 50 per cent. Treatments largely consist of surgical removal or drainage of the infected site, antibiotics and supportive care.-“[U2]The lack of therapies is not for want of effort. On the basis of promising in vitro and animal studies, many drugs have entered clinical trials only to fail, resulting in the description of sepsis research as a ‘graveyard’ of discovery,” said Dr. Lee, a critical care physician and researcher in the hospital’s L Ka Shing Knowledge Institute.”The repeated failure of clinical trials suggests that some fundamental knowledge is lacking in our current understanding of the pathogenesis of human sepsis.”-Dr. Lee said one reason previous trials may have failed is that they haven’t taken into account a key feature of sepsis in humans — diffuse microvascular leakage (widespread leakage from small blood vessels) leading to swelling in tissues and organs (edema). This causes organs throughout the body to malfunction. There have been no clinical trials of drugs designed to prevent or treat leaky blood vessels.-“This is a major change in our thinking about sepsis that could lead to novel treatments to save lives,” Dr. Lee said. “Sepsis is a devastating illness. If we could develop drugs to stop blood vessels from leaking, we could save lives.”-Story Source-The above story is reprinted (with editorial adaptations by ScienceDaily staff) from materials provided by St. Michael’s Hospital.

[U1]Which can be brought on by a host of things –Pollutants—Metals that the body absorbs through outer penetration or through ingestion-foods that do not break down but rater destroy the linings of the intestines which then leak back into the blood stream further causing an overload in the tiny blood capillaries which then burst—breatheing in solvents that can as well cause respiratory overload—liver toxicity –fluoride –mercury-aluminum-barium and the list is endless-
[U2]An alternative would be enzyme- antioxidant-dmso-edta-a-charcoal –clay- and any solution that will flow through the system and alleviate the load and re generate the arteries and capillaries –such as lysine + vitamin C –Gelaton and Bioflavonoids—enzyme rich foods and bacterial and sulfur based foods as well

Neutralize and Enhance in Cooking
Here are going to be some ideas on how to potentially reduce or stop mutating or poisoning of foods we consume when they get in us—the Key here is to AVOID as possible these foods that are genetically altered. Since there is no real way of telling if there has been any cross genetics as a result of transference of pollens from insects –birds-wild life fecal matter or winds and rains or run off from water—we have to assume that there is nothing that has been exposed-In Mexico they have found that a species of genetically modified corn planted in one part of the country was also found 1000miles away in another part of the country.—Lets start out with some kitchen herbs– the list to get started will be on the linkThe list is extensive so this will be a good place to start-go to the kitchen herbs http://augmentinforce.50webs.com/KITCHEN%20HERBS.htm#KITCHEN HERBS—
USE Only Steam Distilled Essential Oils—Only use these not solvent distilled the steam uses just water vapour and the solvent use strippers that can leave a residue in the essential oil
When we are utilizing fats in cooking ( any fat ) what we want to do is boost the fat effectiveness and reduce the break down by adding antioxidants to the fats or herbal or plant components that will increase the utilization of the fat and keep it from breaking down into a free radical—fats have to break down as any other foods but with the antioxidants in them they will cause nominal damage and will as well not carry bacteria or parasites that will live in these environments-causing us to collapse from within. This to will reduce any “Lipid Oxidation” or cholesterol damage and allow for the body to remove the broken or used fats out
Herbs suggested would be –Bay leaf-Rosemary-Sage-Thyme-Oregano-Savoury-Chive-Garlic-Black Pepper-Arjuna-Ajowain-Celery Seed-Ginger-Galanga-Tumeric-Neem—The use of the Essential Oils as well — Bay leaf-Rosemary-Sage-Thyme-Oregano-Savoury-Chive-Parsley-Lemon-Lime-Orange-Tangerine etc
The way to use them would be to add to the fats either as a fusion or during the actual cooking process—to Fuse add either the herbs to a glass container with the oil of choice or fat of choice—lard-butter-ghee-coconut oil-palm oil –animal fat for the saturated fats or other oils Such as olive-almond-peanut-sunflower-pumpkinseed-macadamia etc—add any of the essential oils or fuse them with the herbs of choice or any combination there of with essential oil and herb—Fusing can be done by 1) using a double broiler method where you add the oil inside a glass container and then set this container in the pot of hot water or even boil water and allow to be in there 30 minutes+ til you see the oil absorb the components once fused the strain and add to glass— 2 )or you can add to a blender and blend at high speed with the essential oils or herbs and then strain afterwards-or you can as well add 1 ounce of an alcohol and 6-10 oz of oil and whatever you want to fuse this with and either blend it or double broil it or add to a frying pan and add a little water to keep the oil from becoming to hot and add either or both the herbs or essential oils to them—3 ) or you can use the sun method by adding the components in an oil and in a non clear class allow to sit in the sun for 2 weeks afterwards strain and use-In all of the discussions the essential oils have to be steam distilled not stripped with a solvent because the solvent residual will be in the foods as well-
This will be a matter of preference— need ( if there is a health condition warranting a specific element to create a healing or a balance ) and as a preventative—so explore the different herbs/essential oil in you preparations
[U1]WE know that soy is a Trypsin inhibitor blocking the uptake of protein and aminos in the lower GI
[U2]This actually Stimulates tumors of the pancreas and should not be consumed under any circumstance –Soy id just Garbaged Waste sold to a blind public
[U3]Addictive nature due to lack of brain development or brain damage from the food chemistry—once addicted to the colous of the advertisementsr then what you have is the distraction and no longer are seeing the clear picture-on health
[U4]Gov’t guidelines are whatever is cheapest to feed you first and then boils down what is the most expensive—and they get that or export it in the mean time we are all starving
[U5]The Biggest thing today that is engaging our Gentic response is the genetically modified foods and clones tat are coming into the picture—so again the genetic disposition is not accurate at all unless it is tied to what you have eaten and what changed in te foods you have come to eat tradiationally
[U6]Based more on a supposition—most cultures who are vegan is not by choice or religion but mostly due to poverty or oppressive gov’ts—this takes the zeal and energy out of a fight and makes one more easily to sway and distract
[U7]Which can be brought on by a host of things –Pollutants—Metals that the body absorbs through outer penetration or through ingestion-foods that do not break down but rater destroy the linings of the intestines which then leak back into the blood stream further causing an overload in the tiny blood capillaries which then burst—breatheing in solvents that can as well cause respiratory overload—liver toxicity –fluoride –mercury-aluminum-barium and the list is endless-
[U8]An alternative would be enzyme- antioxidant-dmso-edta-a-charcoal –clay- and any solution that will flow through the system and alleviate the load and re generate the arteries and capillaries –such as lysine + vitamin C –Gelaton and Bioflavonoids—enzyme rich foods and bacterial and sulfur based foods as well
