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 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.

Aluminum and Glyphosate Can Synergisti-cally Induce Pineal Gland Pathology: Con-nection to Gut Dysbiosis and Neurological Disease

ABSTRACT

Many neurological diseases, including autism, depression, dementia, anxiety disorder and Parkinson’s disease, are associated with abnormal sleep patterns, which are directly linked to pineal gland dysfunction. The pineal gland is highly susceptible to environmental toxicants. Two pervasive substances in modern industrialized nations are aluminum and glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup?. In this paper, we show how these two toxicants work synergistically to induce neurological damage. Glyphosate disrupts gut bacteria, leading to an overgrowth of Clostridium difficile. Its toxic product, p-cresol, is linked to autism in both human and mouse models. p-Cresol enhances uptake of aluminum via transferrin. Anemia, a result of both aluminum disruption of heme and impaired heme synthesis by glyphosate, leads to hypoxia, which induces increased pineal gland transferrin synthesis. Premature birth is associated with hypoxic stress and with substantial increased risk to the subsequent development of autism, linking hypoxia to autism. Glyphosate chelates aluminum, allowing ingested aluminum to bypass the gut barrier. This leads to anemia-induced hypoxia, promoting neurotoxicity and damaging the pineal gland. Both glyphosate and aluminum disrupt cytochrome P450 enzymes, which are involved in melatonin metabolism. Furthermore, melatonin is derived from tryptophan, whose synthesis in plants and microbes is blocked by glyphosate. We also demonstrate a plausible role for vitamin D3 dysbiosis in impaired gut function and impaired serotonin synthesis. This paper proposes that impaired sulfate supply to the brain mediates the damage induced by the synergistic action of aluminum and glyphosate on the pineal gland and related midbrain nuclei.

40 names of MSG

…[MSG] is linked to a host of health issues, including fibromyalgia, obesity, fatty liver, high insulin and blood sugar, high cholesterol, liver toxicity, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, disturbance to the gut-brain connection, neurological and brain damage…
…In the 1970′s, researchers found that pharmaceutical MSG would kill brain cells in a laboratory. Shortly thereafter, they realized that commercially available MSG would have the same effect…
…But how does this work? Concentrated free glutamic acid or MSG act as nerve stimulants and will change how the taste buds taste food. A yucky or even a really bad tasting food will taste fantastic when high levels of glutamic acid are introduced as a flavor enhancer.
…The truth is that protein-hydrolysis-based glutamates or MSG are found in just about every highly processed food. Even vegetable proteins are hydrolyzed to make veggies burgers and many other frozen or pre-prepared vegan and “health foods.”
…The FDA does not require manufacturers to label these foods MSG unless the “added ingredient” is 99% pure MSG…
…When purchasing processed health foods, look for these common ingredients loaded with MSG that do not require an MSG listing on the label:

Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
Textured Vegetable Protein
Yeast Extract
…As Jack Lalanne advised, ‘Don’t eat anything with a wrapper! And if you can’t do that, try to avoid processed foods with more than five whole-food ingredients’.

Domino’s, McDonald’s, & Wendy’s Are All Feeding You A Chemical Used In Silly Putty

The use of polydimethylsiloxane provides yet another example of a “trusted” governing body letting the public down by the unethical regulation of our food. As time goes on I trust we will see more of the corruption behind the FDA being exposed. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and avoid the aforementioned fast food choices. It is clear there is a war being enacted on our health, and ultimately the only person who can save you is you. ~ Jeff Roberts

Avoid at all Costs – BPA, BPF, BPS plastics

Yet another reason to avoid plastics. (You are aware, aren’t you, that all canned and many boxed wet food are in containers lined with BP plastic.) This article posted on massreport.com details the risks, some pertinent supporting details, and some minor things you can do to mitigate the affects of the toxins.

 

“Companies use your ignorance on BPS and BPF to advertise plastics as BPA free. But what they don’t tell you is that BPF and BPS is far worse than the infamous BPA…Studies have shown the following risks to those who use BPA or items that have been contaminated with BPA:

Increased risk of breast carcinoma

Increased risk of prostate carcinoma

Increased risk of obesity

Increased risk of diabetes mellitus type 2

Increased risk of cardiovascular diseases

Increased risk of autoimmune diseases

Increased risk of asthma

Exposure associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

Exposure associated with Attention deficit Hyperactivity disorders (ADHD)

Adverse effects of prenatal exposure for the brain

Adverse effects of prenatal exposure for behavior

Adverse effects for prenatal exposure on immune function

It’s sugar, not fat, that causes heart attacks.

It’s sugar, not fat, that causes heart attacks.

A rigorously done new study shows that those with the highest sugar intake had a four-fold increase in their risk of heart attacks compared to those with the lowest intakes. That’s 400%! Just one 20-ounce soda increases your risk of a heart attack by about 30%.   ~Mark Hyman, MD
