GMO issue.
Posted: 4/28/2016 4:17:16 AM
GMO advocates LIE by hiding the entire reason for GMO is financial for x-icide trafficants. GMO has nothing to do with food, nutrition, ag productivty, and EVERYTHING to do with selling chemicals.

And you have no choice but to consume ag chemicals

Private Tests Show Cancer-Linked Herbicide in Breakfast Foods; FDA mum on Its Assessments

According to a report released Tuesday by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, testing procured from an independent laboratory found detectable levels of the herbicide glyphosate in oatmeal and bagels as well as coffee creamer and seven more products, for a total of 10 out of 24 breakfast food items showing levels of glyphosate - a chemical the World Health Organization’s cancer experts have linked to cancer.

Notably, some of the highest levels of the chemical were detected in organic food products, including eggs marketed as “organic, cage-free, antibiotic-free” eggs; and in organic bagels and bread. Indeed, the organic cage-free eggs contained more glyphosate than regulators allow, the group said. The group also tested flour, corn flakes, instant oatmeal, yogurt, frozen hash browns, and coffee creamers.

The ANH said the findings indicate that glyphosate is entering the food supply in a variety of ways, including being sprayed on crops like wheat to help accelerate the crop into harvest, and through livestock feed that accumulates in poultry and other animals. Corn and soybeans, chief ingredients in livestock feed, are genetically engineered to withstand being sprayed directly with glyphosate herbicides.

“The fact that it is showing up in foods like eggs and coffee creamer, which don’t directly contact the herbicide, shows that it’s being passed on by animals who ingest it in their feed,” said Gretchen DuBeau, executive and legal director of ANH-USA. “This is contrary to everything that regulators and industry scientists have been telling the public.”

Question about genetically modified foods (gmo's)
Posted: 12/3/2015 10:20:32 AM
Monsanto and its captured regulators FDA/EPA aren't done yet poisoning land, water, air, humans

EPA tosses aside safety data, says Dow pesticide for GMOs won't harm people

When Monsanto genetically engineered corn and soybeans to make them immune to its best-selling weedkiller, the company pitched the technology as a way to reduce overall use of herbicides and usher in an environmentally friendly era of farming.

Instead of relying on older, more harmful chemicals, farmers could douse their fields with Roundup, a product that Monsanto once advertised as less toxic than table salt.

Two decades later, overuse of Roundup on genetically modified crops has spawned weeds that can survive spraying to grow 8 feet tall with stems as thick as baseball bats. To kill those so-called superweeds, chemical giants are giving the next wave of genetically modified corn and soybeans immunity to the weedkillers of generations past.

The technology that was supposed to make those older herbicides obsolete soon could make it possible for farmers to use a lot more.

For use on its new genetically engineered corn and soybeans, Dow Chemical Co. is reviving 2,4-D, a World War II-era chemical linked to cancer and other health problems.

If these crops are widely adopted, the government's maximum-exposure projections show that U.S. children ages 1 to 12 could consume levels of 2,4-D that the World Health Organization, Russia, Australia, Korea, Canada, Brazil and China consider unsafe.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency had considered that exposure dangerous for decades as well. But the Obama administration's EPA now says it is safe to allow 41 times more 2,4-D into the American diet than before he took office.

To reach that conclusion, the Tribune found, the agency's scientists changed their analysis of a pivotal rat study by Dow, tossing aside signs of kidney trouble that Dow researchers said were caused by 2,4-D.

The EPA scientists who revised that crucial document were persuaded by a Canadian government toxicologist who decided that Dow — a company that has a $1 billion product at stake — had been overly cautious in flagging kidney abnormalities that she deemed insignificant.

When Dow later published this study, the company's scientists likewise dismissed their earlier concerns and changed the most important measure of the chemical's toxicity so it agreed with the EPA's less stringent view.

These decisions paved the way for the EPA to approve Dow's weedkiller, Enlist Duo, en Monsanto genetically engineered corn and soybeans to make them immune to its best-selling weedkiller, the company pitched the technology as a way to reduce overall use of herbicides and usher in an environmentally friendly era of farming.

they're hiding that exercising is very poor way to lose weight for nearly everybody, as compared with healthy diet.

the amount of calories burned in one hour of intense exercise, which almost nobody can do every day or even a few times/week, is only a candy bar or slice of chocolate cake.

Industrial food-like substances are crap, denatured, lifeless, lacking in vitality and nutritive value, and as this report is saying, pathogenic.

The goal of BigFood is above all profit, NOT consumers' health, which is the least of their concerns.

That's why @ssholes who promote GMO "food" as harmless never talk about why Monsanto/Syngenta/etc created GMO "food", never talk about the air/land/water/animal/human toxicity of the chemicals SOLD to produce GMO food.

Hairspray is very probably full of chemicals not meant for direct skin application, but I'm sure hairspray's BigCorp doesn't GAF about you poisoning yourself. One of the really off-putting aspects down here in TX is the heavy, aggressive, dominating odors put off by ladies' hairspray, esp the older ladies stuck in the 70s and 80s.

LOTS of nasty stuff in "body care" and cosmetics pollutes via the skin. Hair follicles are even better as conduits for transdermal chemical absorption.

here's just one example, out of 100s of "body care" chemicals:

NuSI launches groundbreaking clinical study to halt nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in children

Once considered a disease of adults and virtually unheard of in children, the prevalence of NAFLD in adolescents has become increasingly rampant with one in 10 children in the United States—more than 7 million—afflicted with the condition, according to recent estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A rapidly growing epidemic, forty million adults in America also suffer from NAFLD, which is now recognized as the most common form of liver disease in the Western world.

That Evil Gluten
Posted: 7/13/2015 4:35:55 AM
Gluten-Free Doesn’t Mean Healthy, Study Debunks Gluten Myths

A new study from Australia’s The George Institute for Global Health revealed that not only are most gluten-free foods unnecessary for most people, they aren’t all that healthy and may be more expensive.

Gluten sensitivity and the more rare celiac disease affect only a small percentage of people, yet the gluten-free market is exploding in all categories. According to the New York Times, as many as one in three people try to avoid gluten in products, but the chance of being diagnosed with celiac disease is one in 133.

Researchers, led by Dr. Jason Wu, compared a number of gluten-free products with comparable glutinous alternatives in categories including bread, pasta, crackers, cookies and candy. “There has been a tidal wave of gluten-free products coming onto the market in recent years and many people have been caught in the wash as they search for a healthier diet,” Dr. Wu said in a statement. “The foods can be significantly more expensive and are very trendy to eat, but we discovered a negligible difference when looking at their overall nutrition.”

Dr. Wu also pointed to a “health halo effect,” a term that means we often opt for something we think is healthier for us, even without doing research on whether that food (or product) will offer us any real benefits.

“Many people need gluten-free food, but there is a growing group who are only trying it for its apparent healthiness,” said Dr. Wu. “However, we found on average that gluten and gluten-free foods are just as healthy, or unhealthy as each other.”

My guess is that culprit is the 10Ks of synthetic chemicals we are in contact with daily, 100s of which have been found in placenta blood, and almost none of them have been tested even by the silly short-term toxicity tests, and never in infinite combinations after absorbed orally, or through the lungs or transdermally.

Several studies, including recent ones, have shown you simply can't exercise sufficiently and consistently enough to lose significant weight. Many websites show much of which type of exercise is required to burn X calories. Quite depressing.

Exercise to be fit? excellent, highly recommended, no argument, Just Do It.

Average "basal metabolic rate" is about 2000 calories/day, DOING NOTHING, including sitting and sleeping. Look up how much of which exercise it takes to burn 2000 calories. A pound of fat is about 3500 calories

The only reliable way to lose significant weight is through reduced, long-term caloric consumption (NOT dieting). And of course, high quality calories.

But if you want to buy an exercise machine, and have the space, rowing is wonderful, and the Concept2 is fantastic. Works out the back, glutes, legs, abdomen, shoulders, arms, lots of joints through full range of motion. Indoors, all weather, 5 minutes with a couple times/day will produce great CV fitness.

A less obvious workout from rowing is intestinal workout. When I get off my Concept2, I nearly always go right to the bathroom. The abdominal back and forth of rowing assists peristalsis.

"So they say I should avoid carbohydrates and have greater proportion of protein and fats in my diet."

yep, that's pretty much a consensus of recent studies.

Carbohydrates needs to be qualified as low glycemic, unrefined carbs.

protein needs to be qualified as almost entirely plant protein, with minimal or no mammal protein.

fats need to be qualified to plant fats and oils, those known to be healthy, including naturally SATURATED coconut oil.

and the entire diet needs to anti-inflammatory. low-grade, systemic inflammation is an eventual killer.

and today, this shows up

Can the Bacteria in Your Gut Explain Your Mood?

Given the extent to which bacteria are now understood to influence human physiology, it is hardly surprising that scientists have turned their attention to how bacteria might affect the brain. Micro-organisms in our gut secrete a profound number of chemicals, and researchers like Lyte have found that among those chemicals are the same substances used by our neurons to communicate and regulate mood, like dopamine, serotonin and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). These, in turn, appear to play a function in intestinal disorders, which coincide with high levels of major depression and anxiety. Last year, for example, a group in Norway examined feces from 55 people and found certain bacteria were more likely to be associated with depressive patients.

....

If the idea of psychobiotics had now, in some ways, eclipsed him, it was nevertheless a curious kind of affirmation, even redemption: an old-school microbiologist thrust into the midst of one of the most promising aspects of neuroscience. At the moment, he had a rough map in his head and a freezer full of monkey fecals that might translate, somehow, into telling differences between gregarious or shy monkeys later in life. I asked him if what amounted to a personality transplant still sounded a bit far-fetched. He seemed no closer to unlocking exactly what brain functions could be traced to the same organ that produced feces. ‘‘If you transfer the microbiota from one animal to another, you can transfer the behavior,’’ Lyte said. ‘‘What we’re trying to understand are the mechanisms by which the microbiota can influence the brain and development. If you believe that, are you now out on the precipice? The answer is yes. Do I think it’s the future? I think it’s a long way away.’’

changing what you eat, how much you eat, is NOT a diet.

SLOW loss of weight, like only 1 pound/week, or 50!!! pounds/year and keeping it off is the goal by permanent, not episodic, change in eating.

another study, linking gut health to Parkinson's

Parkinson's disease may begin in the gut

Parkinson's disease begins in the gastrointestinal tract, large study indicates

New research indicates that Parkinson's disease may begin in the gastrointestinal tract and spread through the vagus nerve to the brain.

"We have conducted a registry study of almost 15,000 patients who have had the vagus nerve in their stomach severed. Between approximately 1970-1995 this procedure was a very common method of ulcer treatment. If it really is correct that Parkinson's starts in the gut and spreads through the vagus nerve, then these vagotomy patients should naturally be protected against developing Parkinson's disease," explains postdoc at Aarhus University Elisabeth Svensson on the hypothesis behind the study.

A hypothesis that turned out to be correct

"Our study shows that patients who have had the the entire vagus nerve severed were protected against Parkinson's disease.

Their risk was halved after 20 years.

However, patients who had only had a small part of the vagus nerve severed where not protected. This also fits the hypothesis that the disease process is strongly dependent on a fully or partially intact vagus nerve to be able to reach and affect the brain," she says.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/06/150623103609.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily+%28Latest+Science+News+--+ScienceDaily%29

Great story line for a horror movie: stuff in your gut climbs up your vagus nerve to destroy your brain.

honesty regarding sexual capability
Posted: 6/23/2015 7:03:58 AM
My guess is that a lot of ED, even through the later decades, is avoidable.

A healthy plant-dominated diet, eliminating or minimizing stuff from mammals, and moderate activity to achieve/maintain lean weight, cardiovascular/pulmonary fitness, avoiding overweight, obesity, CVD, atherosclerosis, diabetes, etc, all which can contribute to ED.

Fat is not passive, but releases chemicals and hormones which unbalance the testosterone and estrogen hormonal balance, in both males and females.

Then there is the ingestion of estrogen analogues like BPA from plastics, and estrogenic plants like unfermented soy. BigChem, BigFood disable, poison you over the decades, "death by a 1000 cuts", and then BigPharma will fix you up (for a life-long price).

d!ck hardeners work by dilating ALL blood vessels, not just those of the d!ck, which is hardeners are risky for people on BP meds. The hardeners can cause a quite big drop in BP, bringing a sometimes fatal vascular "event". No, ladies, he didn't die from loving you so much. :)

Skyr glosses over the negative effects of statins.

The industry recommendation is statins for everybody all the time all ages.

High risk people popping pills is vastly inferior to a healthy diet and moderate exercise, but BigPharma absolutely is against NOT taking statins, and prescribing doctors are brainwashed, and paid, to prescribe statins.

"Consuming dairy is very wise and not the cause of obesity"

industrial dairy-like substances are NOT wise to consume. The Milk Marketing Board and USDA propaganda for decades is pathogenic BS.

Wonder why hospital stays, services are expensive?
Posted: 6/15/2015 2:46:33 AM
For-profit hospitals mark up prices by more than 1,000 percent because there's nothing to stop them

Using 2012 data provided by 4,483 hospitals to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Bai and Anderson found that those 50 had an average markup of 1,013 percent over what Medicare pays for the thousands of items on hospitals’ “chargemasters.” (Chargemasters are lists of all the items and services hospitals bill for. Hospitals set their own charges. Few states set any limits on what hospitals can charge.) That’s almost three times the average markup at the other 4,433 hospitals. The average markup for all those other hospitals—most of them nonprofits—was 340 percent.

Of those high-markup 50, more than a fourth of them are owned and operated by Nashville-based Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). But with 14 hospitals on the list, HCA was just in second place. A full half of the top 50 are owned by HCA’s biggest rival, Community Health Systems, a Franklin, Tennessee company that operates 199 hospitals in 29 states.

At the very top of the markup list was North Okaloosa Medical Center in Crestview, Florida. That hospital, in the Sunshine State’s panhandle, had the distinction of marking up its costs an average of 1260 percent. The Atlantic’s Olga Khazan took a look at North Okaloosa’s markups. She found, for example, that the hospital charged $79,350 to treat a hemorrhage. That’s compared to Medicare’s reimbursement of $5,177.

Systemic inflammation is amenable to an anti-inflammatory diet + exercise.

"Established science" from BigPharma is BS. BigPharma "science", as is all of US medicine, primarily about a profit, not "science" nor the health of its victims. BigPharma spends twice as much on marketing as on research.

"established science" in a single report in the 1950s for statins and cholesterol was totally bogus, has been debunked.

But BigPharma realized that could create a strawman disease of "high cholesterol" and sell solution of statin. Creating diseases and creating epidemics of diagnoses is how BigPharma lives and profits handsomely.

"established science" for 40+ years has been "low fat". Finally, that "science" is being destroyed.

"Fat" is a non-discriminate, generic term that excludes necessary healthy fats and oils.

The decades of low-fat BAD MEDICAL ADVICE has led to overconsumption of processed carbohydrates and HIGH-FAT people.

Likewise, "saturated fat" includes healthy, naturally saturated fat like coconut oil along with pathogenic mammal fat and industrially saturated fat (eg, Crisco).

My guess is that explosion of Alzheimers in the USA is due to the explosion of sugar consumption over the last 35 years, since BigFood has been buying BigCorn's fructose, HFCS, and tainting EVERYTHING with it to the point accumulating the tainting is poisoning us.

http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-american-sugar-consumption-2012-2

also, BigFood's pubsh for "whole grain" is really a push for empty carbs with a bit of fiber.

search "Advanced Glycation End Products"

If you've swallowed the cholesterol/statins scam, and if you are dificient in Vit D, search "cholesterol vitamin D"

and yes, cutting out sugar and lowering fast carbs to the minimum, reduces the dangerous elevated triglycerides (created when excess carbs are converted to lipids), and diabetic tendency.

The older the man the more critical and judgmental he is....

Older people probably often have a clearer picture of their values, principles, and certainly their (bad) experiences from previous relationships.

Trying to avoid red flags, avoid old scars, baggage, while trying to match values, principles, social/political/religious values, EXTREMELY hard.

which is the healthier sugar alternative.

I've used boiling water on carpenter ants eating one of my fence posts, and on a big ant mound. Worked both times, non polluting.

My next experiment is to use 5% pickling vinegar on weeds.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that the average American consumes anywhere between 150 to 170 pounds of refined sugars in one year!

You may be thinking, “I do not consume that much.” Well, it is also said that:

For every American who eats only 5 pounds of sugar each year, there is one who eats about 295 pounds per year.
That is A LOT of sugar – especially when you compare it to how much we used to consume in the past.

Less than 100 years ago, the average intake of sugar was only about 4 pounds per person per year.

Not 150, 170, or 295 pounds!

The best alternative to sugar (in all its industrial forms) is to train yourself away from high-carb, high-glycemic, sweetened food-like substances. iow, end the cravings. This includes all the common grains, highly refined or whole, since whole grain is still almost total carbohydrate.

This is really tough for most people since the low-fat scam from the confused, misleading medical industry led BigFood to dump sugar into nearly everything for about the last 35-40 years to replace the fat calories.

That 35-40 year period is EXACTLY the period when the average American became overweight and/or obese.
