20 Highest and [20] Lowest Radiation Cell Phones

The guidelines created a measure of the rate that body tissue absorbs radiation energy during cell phone use called the specific absorption rate (SAR). The SAR for cell phone radiation was set at a maximum of 1.6 watts of energy absorbed per kilogram of body weight. The limit was set due to the thermal effects of cell phone radiation (all RF radiation can heat human body tissue at high enough levels) – it was not set to mitigate other biological effects cell phone radiation might have such as DNA damage or cancer. ~ Cell Phone: Pros and Cons, ProCon.org

How Toxins Are Changing Childhood

The number of (largely untested) chemicals in our environment is on the rise, as are the rates of autism, cancer, and other serious health problems affecting kids. KIWI investigates
 this “silent pandemic”—and reveals how parents can fight back.

…In 2014, Dr. Landrigan and Phillippe Grandjean, M.D., an adjunct professor of environmental health at the Harvard School of Public Health, published a paper in the journal The Lancet calling the effects on children’s cognitive development a “silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity.”

…“You need to remember that there are things you can do to limit exposure and that healthy factors can counterbalance the harm of chemicals—most important, a loving, supportive family environment and a nutritious diet.” He and other experts say taking these steps can make a difference:

EAT ORGANIC…
DRINK FILTERED WATER…
PASS UP FOOD THAT COMES FROM ANIMALS TREATED WITH ANTIBIOTICS…
CUT BACK ON CANNED FOOD…
AVOID USING PLASTIC FOOD CONTAINERS…
VACUUM AND DUST WITH A DAMP RAG OR SPONGE EVERY TWO OR THREE DAYS…
USE NATURAL PEST-KILLING PRODUCTS…
TRYING TO GET PREGNANT? TAKE FOLIC ACID…

[Unfermented] Soy: Linked to Brain Damage and Breast Cancer

Here is a summary of soy’s most glaring problems.
– 91 percent of soy grown in the US is genetically modified (GM)…
– Even more frightening is the potential for GM soy to cause infertility in future generations, which has been evidenced by recent Russian research…
– Soy contains natural toxins known as “anti-nutrients.”
– Soy contains hemagglutinin Hemagglutinin is a clot-promoting substance that causes your red blood cells to clump together…
– Soy contains goitrogens…substances that block the synthesis of thyroid hormones and interfere with iodine metabolism, thereby interfering with your thyroid function.
– Soy contains phytates [which] …bind to metal ions, preventing the absorption of certain minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc — all of which are co-factors for optimal biochemistry in your body.
– Soy is loaded with the isoflavones genistein and daidzein [which] are known to disrupt endocrine function, may cause infertility, and may promote breast cancer in women. Drinking even two glasses of soy milk daily for one month provides enough of these compounds to alter your menstrual cycle….
– Soy has toxic levels of aluminum and manganese …
– Soy infant formula puts your baby’s health at risk…
– There is also the issue of pesticides and genetic modification. Soy foods are both heavily sprayed with pesticides and genetically modified (GM)…

How Cleansing Cures Cancer: the Evita Ramparte Story

Evita narrates this video about how she transformed her life when she received an ovarian cancer diagnosis. I think her story can help others who may not (yet) have a cancer diagnosis, but are struggling with obesity and poor health and stress.

How to Make Your Own Smoothie Freezer Kit Creations

This is a great idea. Normally I don’t care for storing food in plastic. However, if it is a choice between drinking smoothies or skipping them because you can’t plan ahead to have ingredients on hand…or take the time to put it together in the morning… Well, this is a great way to get organized to eat well.

The Budwig Anti-Cancer Regimen

“I have the answer to cancer, but American doctors won’t listen. They come here and observe my methods and are impressed. Then they want to make a special deal so they can take it home and make a lot of money. I won’t do it, so I’m blackballed in every country.” — Dr. Johanna Budwig

How Cooking Can Change Your Life – Michael Pollan

When you are McDonalds you like this red box with a bouquet of really long chips [french fries]. Looks really good. So they insist that all their potatoes be Russet-Burbanks and they further insist that they have no blemishes at all. There is a very common defect of Russet-Burbank potatoes called net necrosis. You’ve seen them with those little brown lines or spots that come through them. Well, McDonalds won’t buy them if your potatoes have that. The only way to eliminate that is to eliminate an aphid and the only way to do that is with a pesticide called Monitor that is so toxic that the famers that grow these potatoes in Idaho won’t venture outside to their fields for 5 days after they spray. Then when they harvest these potatoes they have to put them in these atmospheric controlled sheds the size of a football stadium because they are not edible for 6 weeks. They have to off-gas all the chemicals in them. So you see, the desire for a certain kind of chip leads to a certain kind of agriculture.

consuming wheat and other grains may actually increase risk gut diseases

People who eliminate wheat experience marked and often total relief from acid reflux, cramps and diarrhea of irritable bowel syndrome, improvement (and occasional cure) of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. There are marked shifts in bowel bacteria and changes in pancreatic function with wheat elimination. If the irritative and inflammatory effects of wheat consumption on the gastrointestinal tract are so marked, and the effects of removal so dramatic, is it much of a leap to believe that the chronic inflammation and irritation caused by wheat could, over time, also lead to cancer?

After all, a major cause of cancer (“oncogenesis” or “tumorigenesis”) is long-term, repetitive irritation and/or inflammation. The prolonged inflammation and irritation of ulcerative colitis, for instance, can result in colon cancer. People with celiac disease have increased risk for cancer of the small bowel, colon, biliary tract, and other gastrointestinal cancers. If we view celiac disease as just one end of the spectrum of wheat-related gastrointestinal irritation, then these conditions like acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome that we might view as “celiac disease lite” may also heighten risk.

The Wheat Lobby and its friends in high places at the USDA, the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services, and other “official” providers of nutritional advice all agree: Replace white processed flour with whole grains, and incidence of cancer is reduced. That is indeed true. But the effects of NO grains is what is in question.

My prediction: “Healthy whole grains” will prove to be the #1 most substantial cause of gastrointestinal cancers from mouth to anus (oral, esophageal, gastric, small intestine, colon, rectal, pancreatic, biliary) and thereby the #1 most preventable cause of gastrointestinal cancers. Cardiologist Dr. William Davis, author of the best-selling book Wheat Belly, from Nails in the Coffin,

Reasons cancer rates have skyrocketed since your great grandparents’ day

In the early turn of the century, vegetable oils were introduced into the food supply as a result of the growing corn and soybean industries. Did you know that vegetable oils (called polyunsaturated fats) damage all systems of the body? Even if you avoid vegetable oils in your own home in favor of healthy saturated fats like butter, you’re still subject to them every time you go to a restaurant, fast food chain or when you eat processed foods.
