Breast Cancer and heavy metals!

Researcher Dr. John G. Ionescu (openPR) - one now in the renowned environmentalmedical Faschzeitschrift environment medicine society [1] published investigation shows that cancer of the breast fabric is overloaded with heavy metals and the high-dose Askorbinsuregabe could be meaningful phasenweise with breast cancer patients, reported today Sven David Mueller Nothmann of the center for nourishing communication and health journalism (ZEK) in Cologne). Under the direction of Univ. - Scientists of the special hospital new churches, the institute for pathophysiology and Onkologie of the Charles university Prague as well as the department for clinical chemistry of the famous Karolinska of institute in Stockholm eight examined lecturer Dr. John G. Ionescu of the special hospital new churches recover and 20 Brustkrebsbiopsien and showed that in the cancer of the breast fabric the much higher concentration of transition metals is closely connected with a increased production suitor of radicals, Lipidperoxidation, DNA Strangbrchen and mutation as well as tumor growth.

In the comparison to the control's group the scientists found a highly significant accumulation of heavy metals with the tumor samples such as mercury, lead, cadmium, iron, chrome, zinc and nickel. The tumor-inhibiting effect of high-dose Vitamin C (Askorbinsure) is explainable thereby, because by the autoxidation of the Vitamins in presence of heavy metals a strong production of free radicals develops such as superoxide and hydrogen peroxide with deadly effect for the malignant cells.
The test results confirm the suspicion that beside hormoneal Dysregulationen also the oxidative stress can play an important role by pollutants (like e.g. transition metals) with the emergence of cancer of the breast.
The study of Dr. John Ionescu describes for the first time a substantial accumulation of heavy metals in the cancer of the breast fabric.

The increased heavy metal concentration supports the therapeutic beginnings with high-dose Vitamin C or substituted phenols, how also current study results from the USA (under FDA supervision) confirm, clarifies renowned Dr. Ionescu in its publication. In further scientific investigations the researchers want to now find out whether cancer cells enrich heavy metals or first to the degeneration leads the heavy metals. In addition further research need exists regarding the meaning of Antioxidantien such as Vitamin C in the prophylaxis and therapy of cancer illnesses. Starting from February 2007 Dr. John G. Ionescu with its team belongs also to the expert committee of the health portal Qualimedic.de and leads on www.qualimedic.de a environmentalmedical consulting hour.

HARMONICS - personal and global !

For Personal & Global Healing . . .

The Music of Divine Love and Optimal Creativity . . .

This is "the world's most powerful CD," according to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, an internationally known expert in public health and natural healing. Just read his 15th book, Walk on Water. Excerpts reprinted below, and dozens of testimonials, explain why "this musical blessing by Jonathan Goldman, the world's leading toning-for-healing artist, is the best thing you can buy and play to open hearts, expand spirituality, and fulfill your Divine destiny."

Supersonically empower your relaxation, meditation, and prayer to take you to higher levels of wisdom for Divine service.

Jonathon Goldman

Jonathan Goldman, author of Healing Sounds, president of Spirit Music, and Director of the Sound Healers Association spent nearly three decades working to bring the healing nature of sound to mainstream awareness. Jonathan was the first performing vocalist to apply "The Perfect Circle of Sound," advanced by Dr. Horowitz in his most revelatory works, Walk on Water and DNA: Pirates of the Sacred Spiral. In sync and harmony with the Creator's original musical scale Goldman's brilliant direction features veteran vocalists chanting the sacred tones of the Messiah's Hebrew name—the Living Yah.

A special tuning fork set is used to resonate the core creative vibrations of the universe, placing them most profoundly in your room, energizing your body, and entraining your whole being to the eternal Love of the Creator. . . .

"'The Perfect Circle of Sound' has been increasingly associated with profound outcomes, miracles included!" Dr. Horowitz writes, "Love (528Hz) is the central green tone of the universe. It gives rise to the rainbow's central color, warms people's hearts, and is life's core sustaining vibration according to advancing mathematics, physics, and anthropoligical–metaphysical research. The original Solfeggio musical scale, used by ancient Levi priests to produce miracles, plus three little known complementary keys, completes this discovery that supplies our Holy Creative Spirit inspiring us and the interactive dynamics of matter and energy."

In Walk on Water, Dr. Horowitz credits Goldman for writing and intuiting years ago, "'the use of these forks in this particular manner creates a sacred spiral that seems to encode itself as a matrix upon the cellular structure, and particularly on the DNA. I believe this is the matrix of the "higher" human—helping create an evolutionary step in our genetic encoding.'

"Goldman further reported that his experience using the vibrational fields generated by these tones, when used in ascending or descending order, 'seems to have the ability to nullify any frequencies that are counter productive to our highest good. These frequencies create a blanket of Divine sounds that may counter the effects of harmful energy including bacteria and viruses.'

"Without making medical claims, Goldman reported these frequencies likely nullify and dissipate disharmonious energies that may be trying to establish themselves upon our physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual essences. . . . . People call this stress and disease."

The frozen water micro-crystal hexagon shown above was captured in the Japanese laboratory of world renowned water researcher and award-winning humanitarian, Dr. Masaru Emoto. This sacred form of structured water resonated into this unique shape following 24-hours of exposure solely to the Holy Harmony CD.

Incredibly, the clustered-water photograph demonstrates our own fractal holographic nature with its major features reflected in each of the minor six hexagons on each point of its circumference.

"As above, so below." The photo above right shows the center of the crystal contains circular wave patterns produced by "The Perfect Circle of Sound." It is an astonishing demonstration of the legitimacy of Dr. Emoto's thesis that water relays hidden secrets about us and the creation of our universe, and energetically responds to our sounds and intentions.

This is how the Holy Harmony CD, and our Creator's loving "words" on water, works. Lesson: your body is mostly water. These sacred sounds vibrate your water, DNA, and more back into harmony with your purest primal spiritual musical essence!

How and Why Holy Harmony Works

Dr. Horowitz asks you to recall from the Bible that the world began when the Creator’s “word” acted on water. That is, sound frequencies based on physics and mathematics were applied to water.

If you were created in the image of God (i.e., Yah), then your lips must be creative instruments. Therefore, for you to cooperatively recreate yourself and evolve this world with Love, you must speak or sing these core creative tones, especially the central love (528Hz) frequency into water just as our Creator has done since the beginning of time.

3E™ "Evolutionary Energy Enhancer"

Stress and disease, according to Horowitz and Goldman, mainly stems from going "out of tune" with these core creative tones. Most people simply need a "tune-up."

Dr. Horowitz considered "The Perfect Circle of Sound," depicted above, as it relates to creationistic science, healing, planetary salvation, and spiritual evolution. In Walk on Water, he showed these unique sounds equate to the mathematical matrix of the universe. That is why, he concludes, entraining with them brings you heart-to-heart, in intimate contact, with the "Spirit of Yah."

While Goldman was busy recording Holy Harmony, Horowitz was researching ways to protect humanity and promote spiritual therapies. He believes this technology presents the opportunity to, literally, "Baptize the entire planet with Holy water." This knowledge, he concluded, is "critical" for our transition to world peace.

Dr. Horowitz invented the 3E™ "Evolutionary Energy Enhancer" for this purpose. 3E™s and the Holy Harmony CD, sold seperately, or together in a special package, use the same mathematics, harmonics, and geometrics to impart the core creative frequencies into water. In this way, even polluted waters (including your body which is mostly water) can be energized and “reprogrammed” with powerful prayerful messages of love, thanks, peace, health, and prosperity. "Simply personalize it," Dr. Horowitz explains, "with your own creative, affirmative, heartfelt prayer."

"In essence, there's 'nothing missing nor broken in the Kingdom of Heaven.' This complete set of creative sounds, or mathematical vibrations, take you there; where the Source of your sustainance becomes your spiritual transformer and physical healer."

Use Holy Harmony for Healing

Sound is defined in Webster's Dictionary as "mechanical radiant energy that is transmitted by pressure waves in a material medium (as air or water) . . ." So creation is simply based on vibrations of energy and mathematics impacting physics and matter. The Holy Harmony CD and 3E™ uses this knowlege of creationistic science.

Dr. Horowitz's research determined that this math and "music" was used by our Creator to create everything. He believes these tones were revealed to humanity to encourage and direct us to use this knowledge as per "the Genesis Model," that is, vibrating and structuring water worldwide with these sounds. From this concept, the global Concert for the Living Waters, LIVE H2O, is now advancing.

By applying certain mathematical laws detailed in Dr. Horowitz's Walk on Water book and new DVD, making use of these sacred sounds and energizing geometry— essentially our Creator's technolgy—you can transform yourself with "Holy Harmony and/or 3E™ Water" vibrating in the manner and mathematics from which you were initially formed.

Using the Holy Harmony CD and the 3E™ in this way, additionally empowers prayers for manifesting love, thanks, peace, health, longeavity, and prosperity.

These hydrocrystals came from water exposed to 3E™ energy for 24 hours. Notice the beautiful halo emitted that Dr. Emoto's researchers were able to capture on film. And speaking of prayer. This precious photograph shown here, on the right, is a frozen water cluster engaged in what appears to be prayer. This 3E™ cluster not only reflects the prayer received, but may be praying for Earth's survival in return!

Use Holy Harmony for Blessing Reality: The Mathematics of Manifesting Matter

Numerologically displayed around the circumference of 3E™s are the special sound frequencies of the "ancient Solfeggio"—the original musical scale, plus three additional tones forming the "Perfect Circle of Sound." All of this was used by Jonathan Goldman to produce a monumental recording, Holy Harmony CD. (For more background on the discovery of the "ancient Solfeggio," see: Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse by Drs. Horowitz and Puleo.)

Consider the power! These tones were mathematically derived and used by our Creator to manifest blessings, destroy enemies, and produce miracles including the miraculous creation of our universe!

Now you are being called to master this technology to co-create miracles for the greatest common good! Read people's testimonials below. Many people are already experiencing miraculous manifestations in their lives without this technology. Synchronicities are accelerating during this hastening Spiritual Renaissance. Good people yearn for enhanced "love power" to be more widely distributed to benefit all life forms. Now, you can contribute to this spiritual renaissance more than ever by liberally playing Holy Harmony and using the 3E™ .

Holy Harmony Testimonials

"It has been our great pleasure to bear witness to people who have told us astounding stories of healing that occurred simply through listening to ‘Holy Harmony,’ Dr. Horowitz wrote in Walk on Water. " We can also testify that health care professionals have recorded extraordinary transformational and healing experiences with clients while using the Holy Harmony CD and/or the tuning fork set."

"I just want you to know how much I enjoy your CD HOLY HARMONY. I play it in my practice as a manual therapist. Every patient finds it very relaxing and many fall asleep. Very helpful to me. Also the patients find the concept of the frequencies and the chant of GOD's name very intriguing. I thank you for making this CD and for your work with Dr Horowitz. This is really healing and much more. GOD bless you and thanks again." Diana B.

"HOLY HARMONY is most outstanding, chilling and refreshing and very spiritual. In my opinion it is a masterpiece of love and light. It is truly a blessing in this time of grief upon this planet. Your gift is to bring back the intent of joy into audible music." Dr. Joseph Puleo

"You would probably cry with deep emotion if you could see the dolphins responding to HOLY HARMONY. Yesterday, I had a charter with two moms and 3 kids. I put the CD on and the dolphins came from all over their oceanic playground and just hung under the boat. We were going real slow and they would just lay on the bottom at times and were lulled to sleep. They would rise and show their eyes so I know they were listening in the air also. It was magical! They left all the other boats and all of a sudden I had all of the dolphins by me. My charter were absolutely in awe and so was I. Today was the second day and even more dolphins came and then on the afternoon charter there were still more. I am so very thankful." Capt. Vickie

"I'm playing HOLY HARMONY at the moment! I find that I cannot turn it off! Once it is playing I physically can't bring myself to stop it until the CD has finished!! It is very relaxing. A customer of ours played only a few minutes of it. Her whole store seemed to fill with white light and the vibration created made it seem like she was in a giant crystal singing bowl." Robert E.

"I am addicted to HOLY HARMONY. Every night I put it on, and go to sleep with it. I had insomnia for years, but the CD has taken care of that. I also sleep deeper and wake up feeling more alive. My ongoing anxiety is almost gone! I have a deep restful, regenerative sleep. Thanks for your help." Ann P.

"I heard your CD HOLY HARMONY and knew instantly that it was the right music for practicing the Jesus Prayer. It's interesting to me that it brought up the prayer before I even knew what I was listening to. When I found out what the sounds were I was amazed. Thanks for your excellent work. It has improved the quality of my life." Kathy W.

"HOLY HARMONY is really an experience I felt probably was the nearest I would get to heaven. It was profound with colors manifesting and the heart chakra opening. It obviously reaches far deeper than aligning the energy fields. You were certainly divinely inspired. I can't t wait to share it with all my
friends." Valerie D.

"The first few times I listened to HOLY HARMONY I felt my third eye opening up. I used it during a massage and therapist liked it enough to buy a copy for his office." Margaret W.

"HOLY HARMONY is awesome. I work with etheric healing frequencies and am an energy facilitator. Holy Harmony contains a sacred geometry code that I know will work with healing my clients. It contains an earth code to help Mother Earth heal her air, her trauma, pain, chem trails, etc. and vibrationally recalibrates the water." Cindy E.

"I played HOLY HARMONY for the Yoga class. It was most spectacular. That evening driving home I had one of those premonitions, like I used to experience when using brain wave tuners. I was thinking about these 5 deer that I saw early on Easter morning up on our hill, last night I was thinking about them and there they were, in my driveway when I got home." Karen B.

"HOLY HARMONY is an amazing piece of work! Surely you must know this takes the listener into a deeply sacred space which moves through the annals of time and beyond. This is truly a transcendent piece of work. You are tapping into the primordial energies beyond which the human mind cannot travel. I feel the beating of the cosmic heart in this, and the sense of mystery is ever apparent. I assure you. I spent the entire evening with it, and still have it going. I'm finding I'm wanting to "be there" as I move through the day." Donna M.

"My wife and I are on a two year vibrational therapy course. At our last training weekend, here in the UK we came across HOLY HARMONY. It was used extensively throughout the weekend. Since returning home it has been playing often somewhere in the house. The energy invoked by this beautifully put together CD has been incredible. We have become so aware of the Christ energy being present in our home, and feel bathed in it. At other times as we use it as an introduction to daily meditation and chant along with it proves to be very powerful in bringing us immediately in touch with the Divine. What has been most beautiful for us however has been a new exploration of the Christ energy. Having experienced such an energy whilst using this CD has been to a large extent like coming home, and has helped to fill in some spiritual gaps for us. After prolonged listening we find that the main area of resonance is the heart chakra, and more specifically the Thymus. It is exactly this area that HOLY HARMONY hits me every time, and for me has been a very meaningful way of contacting and experiencing the Christ Energy. Thank you for your love and dedication in researching, listening and bringing forth this wonderful CD." Colin J.

"HOLY HARMONY is sure to be transformational in its impact on the Healing Arts community and on the public at large. You have created the ultimate sonic antidote for these intense times of global transcendence." Emily S,

"I want to thank you profusely for the spontaneous healing I received while listening to your healing music on your recent appearance on Coast to Coast. I can' t quite believe it! You see I was leaving for Paris in about a week and I was in agony knowing I could not partake in enjoying foods such as cafe a lai, du tea, chocolat, nuts of any kind, also a meriod of other food products that
if consumed would have triggered a very sick response ranging from sever herpes attack or a systemic malaise that would have me side lined for a good week. These health issues have plagued me for 20 years. Apparently I'd been sleeping for part of your show and woke up for the very short window when you spoke of "Holy Harmony," the recording that was good for viruses. I allowed the music to wash over me without even thinking I might be set free from the herpes virus, I could feel subtle shifts take place in my energy, mainly in my head and then drifted off to sleep. Since that day I have felt different. A fearful down trodden countenance has been replaced by a bubbling sense of wellness. I cautiously began trying out the forbidden foodsand waited for the other shoe to drop...Viola! I ate and drank freely my way through France and thanks to you had the time of my life. I cannot thank you
enough." Christine L.

"I recently bought Holy Harmony while on holiday in Florida. Now back in Ireland I find the CD really fasinating. All my clients (Holistic Therapist) seem to go into a deep sleep while having treatment. I find it "instant calm" for me. Keep up the great sound recordings." Caroline A.

by PJ Birosik
"Internationally acclaimed sound healer Goldman combines a beautiful Choral chant representing the sacred name for the Christ with the mesmerizing sound of tuning forks using a musical scale described in the Bible as the basis for the creation of the universe, as well as Miraculous healing manifestations. There does seem to be some unusual power to this inspired blending of mantra and music as listeners can simply savor these two intensely spiritual sounds.for their uniquely uplifting qualities."

Don't listen to Holy Harmony while waiting for your flight to board! I almost missed my flight because of the mind-altering power of that CD! I had been waiting for the previous flight to leave and then I was going to move over closer to the boarding gate. The next time I looked up MY flight had boarded and I almost missed the last call. Peggy O.

I have never heard anything like this CD—I felt such reverence and awe as I listened to the sacred tones of the toning folks, as well as the powerful vibrational energy of the YHSVH choral chants. The incredible energy of this CD created a profound spiritual power that filled me with peace, clarity and healing. Janet Boyer

This is an Ascension tool that activates the Christ Light within, down to a cellular-molecular-DNA level. It makes sure your Merkaba is spinning perfectly. It is a new way of tuning into the Christ Energy. Joshua G.

I find Holy Harmony to be beautiful, life changing, and empowering music. And so do my friends. I will be taking HH tonight to a group gathering for breathwork. The leader heard it this Sunday night during a healing/wholeness share. She asked me to bring it tonight to play. I played HH for 90 minutes on Sunday night (I never play any music that long.) I started HH playing at 1:30pm in the Sanctuary and allow it to play until the healing circle started at 6:00pm and played it to 7:30pm. I have it playing all day today while I work and meditate. I played it for the minister and we chanted to it and she loves it. My hands have tingled at times feeling the power of intention that HH shares and encourages. I am sure that HH is changing this planet, the people on this planet as well as myself. I have personally played HH for over 20 hours since buying it. Joseph T.

Experience this rising tide of welcome change for yourself. . . .

Share this great hope for ourselves and our planet with others. . . .

Eating blueberries slashes colon cancer risk by 57 percent, animal study finds

Thursday, July 26, 2007 by: Mike Adams

A compound found in blueberries shows promise of preventing colon cancer, according to a new study. Scientists at Rutgers University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture conducted a joint study on animals, and found that the compound -- called pterostilbene -- lessened pre-cancerous lesions and inhibited genes involved in inflammation. Researchers presented the study at the American Chemical Society's annual meeting in March.

"This study underscores the need to include more berries in the diet, especially blueberries," said study leader Bandaru Reddy, Ph.D., a professor in the chemical biology department at Rutgers. Although the blueberry compound won't cure colon cancer, it represents a strategy for preventing the disease naturally, said Reddy, who specializes in studying the relationship between nutrition and colon cancer.

The researchers studied 18 rats in which colon cancer had been induced in a manner similar to human colon cancer development. All of the animals were placed on a balanced diet, with half of the animals' diets supplemented with pterostilbene. After eight weeks, the rats fed pterostilbene had 57 percent fewer pre-cancerous colon lesions compared to the control group. The researchers also noted that pterostilbene inhibited certain genes involved in inflammation, considered a colon cancer risk factor.

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. It has been linked to a high intake of saturated fats and calories common in Western diets. Pterostilbene may be able to reverse this process, possibly by lowering lipids, Reddy said.

Reddy cited a recent study by co-author Agnes Rimando of the Department of Agriculture. Rimando demonstrated that blueberries, particularly their skins, can lower cholesterol when fed to animals.

Some thirty different species of blueberries are native to North America. The berries are rich in anthocyanins, widely recognized for their antioxidant qualities. Blueberries are also a good source of ellagic acid, which blocks metabolic pathways that can lead to cancer.

Many trees have died or are in the process of dying in large areas across the United States and in Alaska. What is triggering such a broad decline and die-off response to entire suites of plant and tree communities?

Whether in forestlands, in public parks, along rivers and streams, in watered areas, golf courses or on private property, our trees are showing signs of major health problems or dying in record numbers. In some areas the majority of trees have died and left entire watersheds in jeopardy.

Allan Buckman, a former Associate Wildlife Biologist, Central Coast Region, California Department of Fish & Game, has been seeing vegetation changes and climate shifts over wide areas of Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake Counties, in California, for several years, that are not normal to this area. As a wildlife biologist, recently retired from assignment in Sonoma and Lake Counties, Mr. Buckman completed field reviews of projects, land acquisition, and animal census over wide areas within these counties, and has had over 35 years of field experience here and in the North Bay areas of California.

Mr. Buckman noted: “…In the past I have seen localized die-off of plant communities from a myriad of sources, and there tends to be a trend toward one to several problems at a time, and it varies year to year. But I have never seen the present condition of wide spread impact to almost all special in all areas from a wide assortment of insects, fungus, molds, mildews, bacteria and virus. I have seen areas where every tree and shrub in a drainage area has some form of health problem…”

Mr. Buckman took vegetation samples from one such area in Lake County, from chamise, ceanothus (buck brush), red bud, laurel, yellow willow, black willow, elderberry, leather oak, black oak, blue oak, interior live oak, walnut, Yerba Santa, Manzanita, and toyon. Mr. Buckman, “…found similar sites in Sonoma County that included live oak, valley oaks, ceanothus, chamise, pears, apples, plums, roses and a number of ornamentals. The “…larger question of just exactly why they are all infected, and what it is that could trigger such a broad response to an entire suite of plant communities…” remains unanswered.

Mendocino County trees and shrubs are also showing the same impacts as both Lake and Sonoma counties in California. The impacts have been documented since 2002, both in pictures and videotape showing the massive changes that have taken place in Northern California. Redding, California areas are showing declining Douglas Fir and Oak (without Sudden Oak Death Syndrome), tree health. These impacts are accelerating faster and can be noted in the number of trees showing symptoms, dead trees and the number of trees that have fallen down under unusual circumstances. (Unusual clumping and blow down of branches and trees are becoming more common.)

Many California Redwood Trees across wide areas are dying or showing signs of severe stress. Greg Guisti, the University of California forest advisor for Mendocino County noted in a Ukiah Daily Journal Article dated May 8, 2002: “…There are also many redwood trees in town that are showing signs of widespread disease…” The questions remain unanswered: Why?

Trees are being cut down in record numbers across the United States without anyone doing the studies to determine why these trees are dying and what is causing this problem. Fires are burning hotter and are more devastating since the late 1980s, and the dying of the trees is certainly aggravating this situation.

Mr. Buckman noted: “I think we are in for big changes, and I think we should be on this ‘like a duck on a June bug’. I think this is as serious as it gets, and we need to act quickly to document the facts and take corrective actions…”

Sudden Oak Death, now blamed for many tree problems, is found rarely or not at all in some counties, and SOD diagnosis does not explain the widespread decline in Oak tree health in trees and counties not infected with SOD, nor does it explain the broad decline and die-off response in trees across the United States.

In a recent article in the Ukiah Daily Journal written by Mark Hedges, titled “Fir Trees Under Attack”, some of the tree symptoms are listed. In an interview with Jack Marshall, a forest pathologist for the California Department of Forestry, he noted “…a few common things going on with the Douglas Fir relative to dry portions of this county, maybe Lake County and southern Humboldt…” However, it should be noted that the impacts are also found throughout these counties not just in the “dry” areas. Marshall, according to the Ukiah Daily Journal article also stated: “…tree-killing insects do not usually attack a healthy stand of trees unless individual trees are somehow stressed or some other pathogen is degrading the health of the tree…”

What is the common dominator for deteriorating tree health in so many areas of the United States? Air pollution, white haze, climate change, increasing UV radiation, higher humidity caused persistent jet contrails, jet fuel emissions, lack of sunlight from persistent aging contrails or climate change produced by persistent jet contrails? There are over 50+ weather modification programs ongoing, according to NOAA records, in the United States. What impact does this chemical manipulation of our weather have on the regional micro-climates that are needed for tree, plant, and agricultural crop health?

Artificial weather modification through the use of chemicals can impact all of us by reducing water supplies, changing agricultural crop production cycles, reducing crop production, and water availability. Since most experimental weather modification programs use chemicals released into the atmosphere the public could be subjected increasingly toxic or unknown substances that could adversely impact agricultural crops and trees.


Global dimming and the persistent contrails, that produce man-made clouds, may have serious impacts on crop production. A recent corn crop study in Illinois shows that cloud cover reduces corn crop production while direct sunlight increases production.

The dead and dying trees, dead branches, impacted shrubs and bushes is turning some of our forests into torches when touched by fire. Why are our public officials ignoring this problem…not taking tree ring and soil samples to find out why are trees are stressed and dying? What has caused this ecological imbalance and what steps are being taken to determine what is stressing our trees? So far the typical response is “drought and bugs”. Many areas where trees are in decline have had normal hundred year rainfall totals. Healthy trees resist pathogens and bugs. Many state and federal government “officials” will talk about the decline “off the record” but are afraid to speak out because they fear the loss of their jobs or demotion. Why?

It should be noted that, according to Charles Little, in the 1995, book, Dying of the Trees, that: “Aside from oxides of nitrogen and sulfur, other strange elements (besides vanadium) showed up in the core samples of the spruce and maple-elements that do not occur in natural forest systems, such as arsenic and barium…cadmium, zinc, lead and copper-were found, too…” Aluminum, which is increasingly being found in required water samples taken by local water districts in Mendocino County, other California counties, and Arizona might be, “…the most toxic of all…” to our trees. And yet, few if any government agencies are taking soil, tree ring, or water samples to find out what is negatively impacting our trees and plants.

Charles Little notes in his book: “As it happens, aluminum is a common constituent of forest soils almost everywhere, but it is ‘locked up’ in aluminum silicates, and in this compound form is not available to tree and other plants, and therefore is no danger to them. But after the acid rains came…the silicates were broken down, and the aluminum was freed to be taken up by trees and plants. The metal kills the roots first. This means that trees can no longer absorb and transport needed nutrients, such as phosphate, calcium, and magnesium-essential fertilizers that are themselves leached away from the soil should by acid deposition…. The trees are weakened and can be invaded by insects or pathogens or succumb to extremes of weather-or all of the above, in which case they die…”

Why is the rain here on the acidic side of the scale? We are not sure exactly what is stressing our trees here but taking tree ring samples and soil samples are a beginning. With increasing air pollution in our local counties the impacts may be greater than we suspect and all of our local, state and federal representatives need to be taking a closer look at this looming problem…not just recommending the cutting down of trees (Senator Dianne Feinstein-Lake Tahoe), in our watershed areas without investigating the reason for the losses.

High levels of UV-B radiation are also impacting wide areas across the United States. This type of radiation can also impact tree health, growth rates, and stress tree in other ways. NOAA/National Weather Service puts current UV Index Forecasts on its websites. The UV exposure level in increasing throughout the United States. Could jet fuel emissions, which contain nitric acid that depletes beneficial ozone in our atmosphere, be one of the major culprits in this increase in UV radiation reaching the earth?

Mr. Buckman noted: “…UV Index Forecasts (NOAA Climate Prediction Center)…the data is quite shocking. We live in an area that regularly has Solar Noon Hour UV levels of 10 to 11 that are listed as “VERY HIGH” …Changes in UV light could easily trigger such a response, and in fact could cause major vegetation community shifts. Why are UV levels elevated?…”

Replanting will be one answer only if we can determine what is causing the problem. Newly planted trees will die as well, as noted in some many areas, one of which is in Redding, California. Before it is too late we need to do those tests and work to mitigate these impacts before we lose more trees and increase the fire hazards in our respective counties. If we don’t find a solution this danger could increase as more trees decline in health and die.

We also have a loss of pollinators and bees in the United States which could also be detrimental to plants and trees, especially to agricultural fruit trees and crops. Chemically based weather modification programs, atmospheric heating and testing programs, persistent jet contrails, that raise humidity and changing micro-climates, could be disrupting tree and plant health across the United States and causing a decline in pollination by reducing the number of pollinators, like bees. Persistent jet contrails also reduce the amount of direct sunlight reaching the earth thereby reducing the photosynthesis process that is need for all plants and trees to grow properly and produce agricultural crops.

Many of our state and federal government agencies know about these problems and are hiding them from the public or not doing the testing to find out why our trees and plants are stressed. Standard answers that don’t make sense are handed out to the public as a placebo in place of real investigations. Before you cut down or trim your dead and dying trees ask the hard questions…find out about what is happening to the trees in your national parks and other areas. Ask the hard questions and demand answers.

The public pays the salaries of our government officials. It is time that they acted in our best interest to protect our trees and plants. And we must let our elected representatives know that some of our government agencies are under pressure to change scientific reports and toe the political party line or they will lose their jobs. We elected our representatives to protect the public interest and our commons, whether air, water, soil, trees, plants, agriculture or atmosphere, from being used for personal gain and questionable private, university, and military experiments. Our elected officials must protect our natural resources and the public health first. Right now our elected officials appear to be protecting political corporate interests, while accepting contributions from their paid lobbyists, over the rights of American citizens.

Pictures of dead and dying trees have been pouring in from many states including Arizona, California, Nevada, Washington, Alaska and Virginia. It is time to take action now. Internet research under “tree decline, type of tree, and tree death, by county and state, will reveal tremendous numbers of trees in decline or dead, not only in the United States but around the world.

IT IS TIME TO FIND OUT WHY OUR TREES ARE STRESSED AND UNABLE TO RESIST PESTS AND PATHOGENS! CONTACT YOUR LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES. ASK THEM TO AUTHORIZE AIR, TREE, WATER, AND SOIL TESTING. We need answers to the questions – not just be told to wait, watch our trees die and then be cut or burned down by forest fires.

The unusual lack of freezing temperatures at night in the winter of 2005 - 2006 resulted in a fruit tree crop production loss. It is believed that the lack of direct sunlight reaching the earth from persistent jet contrails (we have had only three days free of persistent jet contrails between January 1st and March 25, 2007), may have resulted in a reduction in photosynthesis which has retarded native grasses from growing normally as they would if direct sunlight were hitting the earth and providing the energy that grass (from crops to rangeland grasses), needs to grow.

Nanopesticides and LIFE!

Nanopesticides 'need specific regulation'

Anna Salleh
ABC Science Online
Thursday, 19 July 2007

Nanotechnology in food and farming is inadequately regulated, say Australian researchers.

Rural sociologist Dr Kristin Lyons of Griffith University and colleagues present a survey of possible nano-applications in agriculture and food at the Rural Futures conference in Canberra this week.

"Despite significant investment from the agrifood sector in nanotechnologies, the need for nano-specific regulation in this area hasn't been recognised as a priority by the federal government," says Lyons.

She says the nano-agrifood industry will be worth more than US$20 billion by 2010, with heavy investment from companies like Syngenta, Monsanto, Kraft Foods and Heinz.

Lyons says one of the claimed agricultural benefits for nanotechnology is the development of more efficient methods of applying pesticides.

For example, creating nano-sized versions of pesticide molecules could lead to nanopesticide emulsions that are more stable, more toxic to pests and better absorbed into plants, she says.

But Lyons says the same characteristics that make nanopesticides desirable could also present new risks to humans or the environment.

For example, the ability for nanoparticles to penetrate the surface of plants may mean they also penetrate into edible parts of the crop, she says.

Or their added ability to dissolve may mean nanopesticides create new kinds of contamination in soils, waterways or the food chain.

Nanotechnology can also be used to create capsules containing pesticide toxins, says Lyons.

The capsules could be designed to release their contents in specific situations, such as inside the stomach of an insect.

Lyons says while these could give more controlled and effective delivery of pesticides, capsules could wash away and release their toxins into environments they weren't intended for, including the stomachs of other living organisms.

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority says it has not received applications for nanopesticides.

"Any such applications are a fair way off," a spokesperson says.

But Lyons says there are no nano-specific regulations so manufacturers may not be legally required to register nano versions of already approved pesticides.

She says the world's leading chemical company already sells a number of pesticide emulsions containing nanoparticles.

"What we don't know is whether they're for sale in Australia," she says.

Lyons says nanosensors are also being developed to provide real-time monitoring of farm nutrients, pH and moisture levels, as well as pests and pathogens.

She says in some cases these could be linked to nano-seed varieties with in-built pesticides that are released by remote computers linked to a GPS system.

These nanosensors may be scattered widely over farming landscapes causing a new form of "nanopollution", says Lyons.

Food applications

Lyons says nanotechnology is also being used in the food industry, for example, to encapsulate nutrients.

Some nano-structures could sense a person's nutrient requirements such as calcium or iron, and respond by making these nutrients available.

Lyons says some sources suggest there are as many as 300 nanofood products in the international markets and sales in nanofood and packaging were valued at US$5.3 billion in 2005.

The Food Standards Australia New Zealand website says while there is no evidence of adverse effects currently available, potential applications of nanotechnology in food could be a concern for health and environmental reasons.

The agency says it is keeping a watching brief on the food industry's use of nanotechnology.

The Department of Industry Tourism and Resources says it is undertaking a preliminary study into the impact of nanotechnology on regulation, which is expected to be finalised over the next two months.

Unknown infections and death!

Fourth child dies from mystery infection

July 19, 2007 08:15pm

WEST Australian health authorities are desperately trying to find the cause of an illness that has killed four young children in Perth.

The WA Health Department today announced a fourth child had died from a similar cause of illness as three who died two weeks ago.

The three children who died earlier this month all had a combination of influenza A and a bacterial infection.

Paul Van Buynder, director of communicable diseases at the West Australian health department, said the latest child did not have the flu but had contracted pneumococcal bacteria.

"There isn't a single bacterial infection that links the four cases,'' Dr Van Buynder said.

"At this point we are unable to say what the cause of death has been in these four children.''

Dr Van Buynder said it was "very uncommon'' for children to die with an infectious disease so quickly, but he stressed Perth did not have a epidemic on its hands.

"We are desperately trying to get to the bottom of what's causing these illnesses,'' he said.

Health department officials held a teleconference with health experts from around the country today to discuss the issue and have sent bacterial specimens from the four children interstate for further testing.

David Smith, director of microbiology at Pathwest, WA's pathology laboratory, said it appeared the four children had a bacterial infection in the respiratory tract.

"It appears more that in these infections the bacteria either got very quickly into the blood without causing a real pneumonia, that would have given the parents more warning, or that they produced a toxin that got into the system and affected them,'' Mr Smith said.

"And that does mean that the course of the illness was quicker than we normally see with these bacterial infections.''

Parents whose children have common winter colds and coughs are being told not to be alarmed but to seek medical advice if their children develop a high fever, become listless and have a cough.

Obesity in USA!

Obese America: 75pc overweight by 2015

By Sophie Borland
Last Updated: 11:57am BST 19/07/2007

More than three quarters of American adults will be overweight by 2015, a survey has found.

A further 41 per cent will be obese if people continue to gain weight at the current rate, according to the study by Johns Hopkins University.

The team of researchers based in Baltimore looked at national surveys of weight and behaviour as well as examining 20 studies in academic journals.

Their research, published in the Journal of Epidemiological Reviews, also predicted that obesity would soon become the leading preventable cause of death in the United States.

Dr Youfa Yang who led the study said: "Obesity is a public health crisis. If the rate of obesity and overweight continues at this pace, by 2015, 75 per cent of adults and nearly 24 per cent of US children and adolescents will be overweight or obese.

advertisement"Every group is steadily getting heavier."

May Beydoun, one of the researchers involved in the study, said: "Obesity is likely to continue to increase, and if nothing is done, it will soon become the leading preventable cause of death in the United States."

The study defined "overweight" and "obese" using the medical definition the Body Mass Index (BMI) which is found by dividing a person's weight in kilos by their height in metres squared.

Under the classification, those with a BMI of 25 or above are considered "overweight" while those with BMIs of 30 or above are "obese" and considered to be at serious risk of heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancers.

The latest figures show that two thirds of adults and 16 per cent of children and adolescents in the US are currently overweight.

Black women are much more prone to the condition with an alarming 80 per cent aged 40 or over classified overweight and 50 per cent obese.

The United States is the most overweight country in the world and the soaring levels of obesity have been attributed to a poor diet of junk food and fizzy drinks as well as lack of exercise.

In Britain the figures are considerably lower but health experts are warning that the country is now on the brink of an obesity epidemic.

Around a quarter of British adults are obese while the proportion of obese children rose by more than 40 per cent between 1995 and 2004.

Last week a study suggested that a so-called fat tax could save more than 3,000 lives a year. The researchers showed that obesity levels would fall if people were forced to pay more for fattier foods.

Diesel pollution and LIFE!

Never mind Diesel, start looking at the deadly modern UNsaturated fats and do something NOW !

Diesel pollution 'clogs arteries'

Thursday, 26 July 2007, 00:38 GMT 01:38 UK

Diesel fumes appear to combine with artery-clogging fats to raise the risk of heart disease, research suggests.

Scientists found the two act in concert to switch on genes that cause potentially dangerous inflammation of the blood vessels.

They hope their work will lead to a simple blood test enabling doctors to evaluate the impact of air pollution on a person's health.

The UCLA study appears in the online journal Genome Biology.

Lead researcher Dr André Nel, an expert in nanomedicine, said the impact of diesel particles and cholesterol fats combined was much greater than the impact of each in isolation.

He said: "Their combination creates a dangerous synergy that wreaks cardiovascular havoc far beyond what's caused by the diesel or cholesterol alone."

The researchers focused on the interaction between diesel exhaust particles and fatty acids found in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol - the "bad" type of cholesterol that leads to artery blockage.

Both are sources of molecules called free radicals which cause cell and tissue damage, and can trigger the inflammation that leads to artery disease.

Cell cultures

The researchers combined the pollutants and fats and cultured them with cells taken from the inner lining of human blood vessels.

A few hours later, they extracted DNA from the cells for genetic analysis.

They showed that the genes that promote cellular inflammation had been activated.

Next, they exposed mice with high cholesterol to the diesel particles, and saw that some of the same genes were activated in the animals' tissue.

Dr Nel said: "Exactly how air pollutants cause cardiovascular injury is poorly understood.

"But we do know that these particles are coated with chemicals that damage tissue and cause inflammation of the nose and lungs.

"Vascular inflammation in turn leads to cholesterol deposits and clogged arteries, which can give rise to blood clots that trigger heart attack or stroke."

Cathy Ross, cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, said it was already known that prolonged exposure to air pollution resulted in a small increased risk of death from heart disease and stroke.

She said: "For most people, we know that everyday measures such as eating a healthy diet low in saturated fat, taking regular physical activity and giving up smoking will have more impact on reducing the risk of developing heart disease.

"But, anyone with chronic lung disease or coronary heart disease should avoid staying outside for long periods when pollution levels are high."


Vit.B12 deficiency and sugar substitutes!

Metformin, a glucose-lowering drug, is one of the most widely prescribed drugs for type-2 (adult-onset) diabetes. But the longer a person takes the drug, especially at high dosages, the more likely he will develop a deficiency of vitamin B12.

Researchers have known since the early 1970s that almost one-third of patients taking metformin have problems absorbing vitamin B12. Studies have found that metformin reduces blood levels of the vitamin by 14 to 30 percent.

In the most recent study along these lines, Kai Ming Chow, MRCP, a physican at the Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong, investigated 155 diabetic patients who developed vitamin B12 deficiency after taking metformin. Chow also studied 310 diabetic patients taking metformin but with no signs of vitamin B12 deficiency.

Patients taking metformin for three or more years were almost two and one-half times more likely to develop vitamin B12 deficiency. Furthermore, each 1-gram increase in the daily dosage almost tripled the risk of vitamin B12 deficiency.

Vegetarians, who are at particular risk of vitamin B12 deficiency, were about eight times more likely to have a deficiency when taking metformin.

Some evidence indicates that metformin may interfere with absorption of vitamin B12 in the ileum, the last part of the small intestine.


Coconut Oil and the healthy tyroid!

Thyroid Health and The Coconut DietTM


Many Americans suffer from symptoms such as cold hands and feet, low body temperature, sensitivity to cold, a feeling of always being chilled, headaches, insomnia, dry skin, puffy eyes, hair loss, brittle nails, joint aches, constipation, mental dullness, fatigue, frequent infections, hoarse voice, ringing in the ears, dizziness, loss of libido, and weight gain, which is sometimes uncontrollable. Approximately 65 percent of the U. S. population is overweight; 30 percent is clinically obese. Research is pointing to the fact that an under active thyroid might be the number one cause of weight problems, especially among women, in the US today.

Virgin Coconut Oil offers great hope for those suffering from hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) today. I didn't even realize how much hypothyroidism was affecting my life till I started on the Virgin Coconut Oil and suddenly had energy like the Energizer Bunny! I also gave up the white toxins (wheat flour, refined sugar, potatoes, and other high-glycemic index foods) and that, in combination with my Virgin Coconut Oil consumption has made a tremendous difference in my hormonal balance, mood stability, stamina and overall energy. And, I'm slowly but steadily losing a little bit of weight without effort. Ya gotta love that! Julia (Coconut Diet Forums)

I have had SEVERELY low thyroid for nearly two years now and nothing I tried corrected it. Being a naturalist, I did NOT want to end up taking Synthroid. When my daughter showed me your website, I was so excited to try the Coconut Oil. I took 3 tablespoons a day and within two months, I returned to my physician and she just couldn't believe that EVERYTHING on my tests was once again normal! She was so enthused that she has prescribed your product to three other thyroid patients since then. Your product took me out of the doom and gloom I suffered for so very long! My muscles have returned to normal... The mental fog, depression, hoarse voice, swollen face/eyes and all my other symptoms have disappeared!

Thanks for saving my life, Tropical Traditions!!! AJ Nevada, Las Vegas

We have received many other comments such as these from those using Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil with hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism Reaching Epidemic Proportions

In 1995, researchers studied 25,862 participants at the Colorado statewide health fair. They discovered that among patients not taking thyroid medication, 8.9 percent were hypothyroid (under-active thyroid) and 1.1 percent were hyperthyroid (over-active thyroid). This indicates 9.9 percent of the population had a thyroid problem that had most likely gone unrecognized. These figures suggest that nationally, there may be as many as 13 million Americans with an undiagnosed thyroid problem.1

In her book Living Well With Hypothyroidism: What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You. . . That You Need to Know, Mary Shomon quotes endocrinologist Kenneth Blanchard, M.D., of Lower Newton Falls, Massachusetts as saying, “The key thing is . . . doctors are always told that TSH is the test that gives us a yes or no answer. And, in fact, I think that's fundamentally wrong. The pituitary TSH is controlled not just by how much T4 and T3 is in circulation, but T4 is getting converted to T3 at the pituitary level. Excess T3 generated at the pituitary level can falsely suppress TSH.”2 Hence, many people who are simply tested for TSH levels and are found to be within “normal” range are, in fact, suffering from thyroid problems that are going undetected.

Ridha Arem, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Baylor College of Medicine, agrees. He says that hypothyroidism may exist despite "normal range" TSH levels. In his book The Thyroid Solution he says:

Many people may be suffering from minute imbalances that have not yet resulted in abnormal blood tests. If we included people with low-grade hypothyroidism whose blood tests are normal, the frequency of hypothyroidism would no doubt exceed 10 percent of the population. What is of special concern, though, is that many people whose test results are dismissed as normal could continue to have symptoms of an under active thyroid. Their moods, emotions, and overall well-being are affected by this imbalance, yet they are not receiving the care they need to get to the root of their problems. Even if the TSH level is in the lower segment of normal range, a person may still be suffering from low-grade hypothyroidism.3

Thus, if we were to include those who may be suffering from “low-grade hypothyroidism,” the number could well be double the 13 million estimate from the Colorado study.

What is Causing This Epidemic?

While more research needs to be done, it is generally accepted that diet plays a major role in thyroid health. For decades we have known that low iodine intake leads to low thyroid function and eventually to goiter. Iodized salt was intended to solve this problem, but it has not been the answer. There are a number of foods known as goitrogens that block iodine. Two goitrogens are quite prevalent in the American diet—peanuts and peanut butter and soybeans used most often in prepared foods as textured vegetable protein (a refined soy food) and soybean oil.

The rise of industrialization, corporate farming, and mass production of food has drastically changed our food supply from what our ancestors ate. Many studies show the detrimental effects of refined sugars and grains on our health. These foods are very taxing on the thyroid gland, and we consume them in large quantities.

Environmental stress such as chemical pollutants, pesticides, mercury, and fluoride are also tough on the thyroid. A growing body of evidence suggests that fluoride, which is prevalent in toothpaste and water treatment, may inhibit the functioning of the thyroid gland. Additionally, mercury may diminish thyroid function because it displaces the trace mineral selenium, and selenium is involved in conversion of thyroid hormones T4 to T3.

The Truth About Fats and Oils

Many dietary oils can negatively affect thyroid health. We cook with them almost every day and they are plentiful in commercially prepared foods. Expeller-pressed or solvent-extracted oils only became a major part of the American diet in the last century. It is possible they are among the worst offenders when it comes to the thyroid. They are known as vegetable oils or polyunsaturated oils. The most common source of these oils used in commercially prepared foods is the soybean.

Large-scale cultivation of soybeans in the United States began after World War II and quickly increased to 140 billion pounds per year. Most of the crops are produced for animal feed and soy oil for hydrogenated fats such as margarine and shortening. Today, it is nearly impossible to eat at restaurants or buy packaged foods that don’t have soy oil in the ingredients. Often labels simply state “vegetable oil.”

Ray Peat Ph.D., a physiologist who has worked with progesterone and related hormones since 1968, says that the sudden surge of polyunsaturated oils into the food chain post World War II has caused many changes in hormones. He writes:

Their [polyunsaturated oils] best understood effect is their interference with the function of the thyroid gland. Unsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its movement in the circulatory system, and the response of tissues to the hormone. When the thyroid hormone is deficient, the body is generally exposed to increased levels of estrogen. The thyroid hormone is essential for making the ‘protective hormones’ progesterone and pregnenolone, so these hormones are lowered when anything interferes with the function of the thyroid. The thyroid hormone is required for using and eliminating cholesterol, so cholesterol is likely to be raised by anything which blocks the thyroid function.4

There is a growing body of research concerning soy’s detrimental affect on the thyroid gland. Much of this research centers on the phytoestrogens ("phyto" means plant) that are found in soy. In the 1960s when soy was introduced into infant formulas, it was shown that soy was goitrogenic and caused goiters in babies. When iodine was supplemented, the incidence of goiter reduced dramatically. However, a retrospective epidemiological study by Fort, et al. showed that teenaged children with a diagnosis of autoimmune thyroid disease were significantly more likely to have received soy formula as infants (18 out of 59 children; 31 percent) when compared to healthy siblings (nine out of 76, 12 percent) or control group children (seven out of 54; 13 percent).5

When healthy individuals without any previous thyroid disease were fed 30 grams of pickled soybeans per day for one month, Ishizuki, et al. reported goiter and elevated individual thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels (although still within the normal range) in thirty-seven healthy, iodine-sufficient adults. One month after stopping soybean consumption, individual TSH values decreased to the original levels and goiters were reduced in size.6

Traditionally, polyunsaturated oils such as soybean oil have been used for livestock feed because they cause the animals to gain weight. These oils are made up of what is known as long chain fatty acids—the kind of fatty acids that promote weight gain. In the North Carolina State University's Extension Swine Husbandry 1998-2000 Departmental report, for example, was a study entitled “EFFECT OF DIETARY FAT SOURCE, LEVEL, AND FEEDING INTERVAL ON PORK FATTY ACID COMPOSITION” by M.T. See and J. Odle. Ironically, since the market in its low-fat dogma of recent years is demanding leaner meats, this study showed that one could produce leaner meat and reduce the weight on swine by reducing their intake of soy oil and substituting it with saturated animal fat!7

According to Dr. Ray Peat, the fattening effect of polyunsaturated oils (primarily soy and corn) is due to the presence of Linoleic and linolenic acids, long-chain fatty acids, which have an anti-thyroid effect. Peat says:

Linoleic and linolenic acids, the "essential fatty acids," and other polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are now fed to pigs to fatten them, in the form of corn and soy beans, cause the animals' fat to be chemically equivalent to vegetable oil. In the late 1940s, chemical toxins were used to suppress the thyroid function of pigs, to make them get fatter while consuming less food. When that was found to be carcinogenic, it was then found that corn and soy beans had the same antithyroid effect, causing the animals to be fattened at low cost. The animals' fat becomes chemically similar to the fats in their food, causing it to be equally toxic, and equally fattening.8

Of course in the 1940s the fat from pigs (lard) was highly desirable, as were most saturated fats. Today, saturated fats are fed to pigs to keep them lean, while most people buy polyunsaturated soy and corn oils in the grocery stores as their primary cooking oil! So we have a population now characterized by lean pigs and obese people…

Coconut Oil: A-Healthy Choice for the Thyroid

Coconut oil, on the other hand, is a saturated fat made up primarily of medium chain fatty acids. Also known as medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), medium chain fatty acids are known to increase metabolism and promote weight loss. Coconut oil can also raise basal body temperatures while increasing metabolism. This is good news for people who suffer with low thyroid function. We have seen many testimonies to this effect.

The "proof is in the pudding". Try it yourself and then you be the judge. All these people certainly can't "be wrong". Everyone will experience different benefits, some more than others, but definitely something. In my own personal experience, I was suffering with hypothyroidism that even prescription medications couldn't help. After a few short weeks of taking Virgin Coconut Oil, my reading was normal for the first time in a year. I use it on my skin after a shower and no longer struggle with the incredibly dry skin that often goes along with hypothyroidism, and I have used it on my hair as a conditioner. All I can say that the phrase "The world's perfect food" is quite accurate. Try it and see for yourself. Warmly, Melanie (Coconut Diet Forums)

I began taking coconut oil to address a hypothyroid issue. Recently, especially over the last month, thyroid activity plunged and my temperatures would top out for the day somewhere between 97.2 and 97.8. Definitely hypothyroid territory. Now in just a couple of days the coconut oil has boosted my metabolism back toward the normal range (still subnormal but getting there) and my sleep has been incredible. From past experience with thyroid management, I know that--in my case--greatly improved sleep and feelings of rejuvenation after sleep are related to more normal thyroid activity. Whatever the precise mechanism, it's a welcome development. Mike (Coconut Diet Forums)

Coconut Oil and Oxidative Stress

One of the reasons the long chain fatty acids in vegetable oils are so damaging to the thyroid is that they oxidize quickly and become rancid. Food manufacturers know about this propensity towards rancidity and, therefore, highly refine their vegetable oils. Considerable research has shown that trans fatty acids, present when vegetable oils are highly refined (hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated), are especially damaging to cell tissue and can have a negative affect on the thyroid as well as health in general. Because the longer chain fatty acids are deposited in cells more often as rancid and oxidizing fat, impairment of the conversion of thyroid hormone T4 to T3 occurs, which is symptomatic of hypothyroidism. To create the enzymes needed to convert fats to energy, T4 must be converted to T3.

Dr. Ray Peat says:

When the oils are stored in our tissues, they are much warmer, and more directly exposed to oxygen than they would be in the seeds, and so their tendency to oxidize is very great. These oxidative processes can damage enzymes and other parts of cells, and especially their ability to produce energy. The enzymes which break down proteins are inhibited by unsaturated fats; these enzymes are needed not only for digestion, but also for production of thyroid hormones, clot removal, immunity, and the general adaptability of cells. The risks of abnormal blood clotting, inflammation, immune deficiency, shock, aging, obesity, and cancer are increased. Thyroid [hormones] and progesterone are decreased.

Since the unsaturated oils block protein digestion in the stomach, we can be malnourished even while "eating well." There are many changes in hormones caused by unsaturated fats. Their best understood effect is their interference with the function of the thyroid gland. Unsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its movement in the circulatory system, and the response of tissues to the hormone. Coconut oil is unique in its ability to prevent weight-gain or cure obesity, by stimulating metabolism. It is quickly metabolized, and functions in some ways as an antioxidant.9

Because coconut oil is saturated and very stable (unrefined coconut oil has a shelf life of about three to five years at room temperature), the body is not burdened with oxidative stress as it is with the vegetable oils. Coconut oil does not require the enzyme stress that vegetable oils do, preventing T4 to T3 hormone conversion, not only because it is a stable oil, but also because it is processed differently in the body and does not need to be broken down by enzyme dependent processes as do long chain fatty acids. Also, since the liver is the main place where damage occurs from oxidized and rancid oils that cause cell membrane damage, and since the liver is where much of the conversion of T4 to T3 takes place, eliminating long chain fatty acids from the diet and replacing them with medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil can, in time, help in rebuilding cell membranes and increasing enzyme production that will assist in promoting the conversion of T4 to T3 hormones.

More research in this area is necessary. In the meantime, those switching from polyunsaturated oils to coconut oil are reporting many positive results. For example, Donna has experienced encouraging improvements in her thyroid health. She writes:

I've been on coconut oil since September, 2002 and, although, that doesn't seem like long, it has changed my life and the lives of my family and friends. My weight actually went UP when I started on coconut oil but I felt so GREAT! Being hypothyroid, I was on Synthroid and Cytomel and had been for years, but with inconsistent results and feeling worse. Other changes besides the addition of coconut oil were the complete removal of soy (and that is a major challenge in itself!), all trans fatty acids, no refined sugar, and organ cleanses seasonally. My thyroid meds were discontinued with my doctor's knowledge as I was getting too energetic and having trouble sleeping! [Imagine], from being a “sleepaholic” couch potato that was cold! My weight stayed steady until the last three weeks and it has now started the downward move. My goal was health and just believed the weight would come off when I found the right diet and exercise routine that my life was comfortable with. I've tried removing the coconut oil but my energy drops and I don't feel as good. Donna (Coconut Diet Forums)

Another coconut oil user writes:

I have experienced thyroid problems . . . body temperature not going above 97 degrees, cold hands and feet, can't lose weight, fatigued, slow heart rate, can't sleep some nights, dry skin, etc..... My doctor did the thyroid test and it came back normal. I am 46 and peri-menopausal. My Naturopath symptomatically diagnosed me with hypothyroidism. She explained the blood tests currently used by allopathic medicine are not sensitive enough. I started on the coconut oil 5 weeks ago. In the first week I noticed my body temperature had risen and my resting heart rate had gone from 49 to 88 beats per minute. This has since settled to 66. My energy is now really high and I am slowly losing the weight - 3 lbs. in the past 5 weeks. I also had been taking flaxseed oil and gamma linoleic acid oil but have stopped eating every other oil but what Dr. Raymond Peat recommends, which is coconut oil, olive oil and butter… I take 3 tablespoons of coconut oil daily.

Be magic, live magic !



JULY 23, 2007. My unique upcoming tele-seminar on STRESS starts on August 2. Click on the link above to sign up. Even if your schedule doesn’t permit attending the 3 live calls, you still get the entire workshop on CD or mp3.

Stress has been studied and analyzed up one side and down the other side for the past 50 years. I can summarize the major flaw in all this work with the following illustration:








As the casino clerk in Vegas says when you hand her a few hundred dollars and she slides a stack of chips toward you, “Good luck.”

For additional punch, let me summarize the above illustration this way:


Here is another metaphor: a person lives off junk food three times a day every day. Week after week, month after month, year after year. He goes to a health practitioner and says: “I want a pill that will make me healthy. I want the pill to give me maximum health and energy with no side effects. And the pill should also enable me to lose sixty pounds.”

Now let’s swing over to the other side of this discussion. Let’s talk about something that appears to have nothing to do with stress:


The hallmark of magic is: you can move into spaces that most people claim do not exist. Most people don’t even understand the concept of other spaces.

Magic is the ability to be fluid, to go into places where imagination and creation are the leading edge.

This is a very powerful factor. It is a VERY powerful and real factor.

My seminar will contain new exercises and techniques that facilitate this kind of magic.


Because magic removes stress.


I’ll put this another way. Imagine your body. Imagine various arrows of pressure coming in at all angles. Those arrows enter your body and block the smooth flow of energy. That’s stress.

Imagine that you have found a way to exist in just one space all the time. That’s the space where you live.

Physical space.

Well, it’s inevitable that “the religion of living in just one space” will build up stress. You’re a sitting duck.

It’s an artificial situation. Living only in physical space is an artificial deal. It’s not meant to be that way, but through various kinds of brainwashing and indoctrination, people come to believe in THE ONE SPACE.

The result? Stress builds up.

In other words, you have to make a concerted effort to remain in one space. It isn’t natural.

And that effort is an invitation for accumulating stress.

Think of it this way: you’re standing on a stage in the middle of a company of dancers. They’re moving all over the stage. The music is fantastic. But you’re holding fast in one spot. You’re doing everything you can to remain rooted to the spot where you’re standing. Within a very short time, you’ll FEEL the stress.

Magic is the natural act of moving among many spaces in a fluid and powerful way.

When you do THAT, stress diminishes.

Scientists like to speculate about the possibility that there is more than one universe. More than one space. This is a joke. There are an infinite number of spaces. We’ve trained ourselves to shut our eyes and pretend there is only one space.

In a related issue---people want to express certain emotions. They feel blocked. They feel those emotions are bottled up. They feel there is only one space in which they could express those emotions. This is incorrect. It turns out that when you re-learn the ability to move into and out of many spaces, you find you CAN express those emotions. You experience a new kind of freedom. And, by the way, at that point, stress diminishes. You’re no longer a passenger on a ship inside a bottle. You’re off the ship and out of the bottle.

When you can do magic as I’ve described it in this article, you approach the natural and core factors of YOURSELF:





As you move toward the realization of these factors, stress takes on a whole new meaning. It stops being a negative inhibiting force. It becomes fuel for your fire. It’s just more fuel added on. You use it to propel yourself with even greater power.

And layer by layer, you uncover your deeper dreams and desires, and you make them into realities.


Each new exercise in the seminar is geared to allow you to EXPERIENCE magic. Each exercise is intended for daily practice, so that your experience builds and widens and deepens.

Soft drinks effects!

(NewsTarget) Teenagers who drink more soda have more mental health difficulties, including hyperactivity and mental distress, according to a study recently published in the American Journal of Public Health.

Researchers used questionnaires to survey 5,547 Norwegian 10th graders about their eating and soda-drinking habits, as well as hyperactivity and conduct problems in school, and mental health indicators such as anxiousness, dizziness, hopelessness, panic, sadness, sleeplessness, tension, unhappiness with themselves and a sense that everything is a burden.

They found that the teenagers who drank the most soda (an average of four or more glasses a day) scored highest on measures of behavioral difficulties, hyperactivity, mental distress and overall mental health problems.

Norway has the highest rate of carbonated soft drink consumption in the world, with an average of more than 30 gallons per person per year. Among the teenagers surveyed in the study, 45 percent of boys and 21 percent of girls drink one or more glasses of soda daily.

Because the study only looked at correlation, the exact reason for the link between soda intake and mental distress is not clear. The researchers pointed out that children with high soda consumption are more likely to skip meals and eat less nutrient-dense foods than children with lower consumption, thus making them more likely to develop nutritional deficiencies. Other potential culprits are sugar and caffeine.

Regardless of the cause of the correlation, it is still well-known that high soda consumption is unhealthy. Sugared sodas have been singled out as major culprits in childhood obesity and related health problems such as diabetes.

"These findings make a strong comment about the need to make soft drinks less available in schools, homes and events for kids," said lead researcher Lars Lien. "Together with all the other compelling evidence of detrimental effects of sugar, I think the evidence from this study strengthens the call to make changes as a society."

Nutritionist Mike Adams, author of The Five Soft Drink Monsters, a book that teaches people how to kick the soda habit, said, "It is very clear that diet strongly impacts mood, mental function and behavior. Drinking liquid sugars or artificial chemical sweeteners is much like poison to the human body, and it causes an imbalance in the functioning of the body and mind."

Adams added, "Most children diagnosed with ADHD are actually suffering from severe nutritional imbalances that can be easily corrected through changes in diet."


Sodium Bicarbonate and its miracles in cancer!

Cancer Cure Protocol

International Medical Veritas Association
The World Health Organization predicts that cases of
cancer will increase by up to 50% worldwide by 2020.


We are no longer looking for a cure for cancer, it has been found in the most unlikely place, the emergency room. The answer is simple, safe and effective and is inexpensive to administer. What we have done is stolen the best medicines found in the emergency room and applied them to chronic diseases and most specifically to cancer, which almost fifty percent or more of us are doomed to get.

The same medicines that can save a life on demand instantly in an emergency situation like cardiac arrest are some of the same ones we can use to battle the diseases that have been baffling the entire western allopathic establishment for decades. They offer a power unequalled in the world of medicine that we can harness to cure cancer. As cancer rates surge upward human survival is directly related to a safe and effective protocol for cancer.

Such a protocol has to address the many faces of cancer, its many etiologies including heavy metal toxicity, viral and other pathogens[i] that provoke cancer formation, cancer’s fungal characteristic, ph shift toward the acidic, mineral and other nutritional deficiencies that leave us vulnerable, and even the psycho-emotional shocks that act like the first domino that gets the entire process started. Though there is no such thing as "one size fits all" type of protocol but one must cover the basics anytime one treats something as serious as cancer. Also band-aid on the symptom type approaches are not sufficient, we have to get to the root cause if we want to stay in remission. Cancer can only be considered cured if it never comes back.

The IMVA cancer protocol is a matter of overkill, meaning by combining several substances that are each highly effective individually, we will reach unheard of percentages of cure. Hardly anyone has to die of cancer and no one has to suffer the tremdously poisonous radiation and chemotherapy that oncologists use in their ignorance.

What will come as a surprise to most allopathic physicians is that the emergency room medicines we have selected are not pharmaceutical medicines but highly concentrated nutritional substances. We are talking specifically about magnesium chloride, iodine and sodium bicarbonate. These basic emergency room substances, along with ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) make up a core protocol, like the inner kernel of a powerful new operating system, with add on modules (add on treatments) easily inserted to adapt to each medical situation. For instance selenium is another addition as are a whole collection of substances like vitamin C, all of which give us the power to trap cancer tumors and catch them in a lethal cross fire of concentrated nutritional substances. What this protocol does is trap cancer cells and expose them to substances that make it almost impossible for them to survive while it simultaneously addresses the “terraine,” the cellular and intercellular environments to remove the conditions favorable for cancer growth.

The answer has been sitting in front of allopathic medicine’s
nose all along, found in simple and inexpensive substances
used everyday to save peoples lives in emergencies.

Magnesium chloride is probably the most powerful safe nutritional medicine on earth but it is not appropriate to consider drugs or nutritional agents in isolation. A focus on combination therapy enables us to outflank the entire cancer process. Magnesium chloride, when applied directly to the skin, is transdermally absorbed and has an almost immediate effect on local tissues and the same can be said about iodine when applied topically. The two together are safe and effective for skin and Breast Cancer s

Breast cancer and fibroid disorders can be eradicated with a three pronged attack using magnesium chloride and iodine combined with injections of sodium bicarbonate. Most of us are going to be surprised to find out that there is an oncologist in Rome Italy, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, destroying cancer tumors with sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate is safe, extremely inexpensive and unstoppably effective when it comes to cancer tissues. It’s an irresistible chemical; cyanide to cancer cells for it hits the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which allows much more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate. There never was a need for a war against cancer since a great part of the answer has been sitting in emergency rooms all along.

Humanity is being caught between the hammer of chemical
toxicity, and the anvil of not having enough micro
nutrients to stave off chronic and degenerative diseases.

In addition, the protocol recognizes the mental, emotional and spiritual sources of cancer and the traumatic shocks to human consciousness that trigger the downward spiral into cancerous conditions. Though cancer can be highly complicated by these factors the core of the protocol is so strong and so precisely targeted to kill cancer cells that it becomes secondary to delve deeply into the human conflicts and stress points that so often accompany the disease. On the other hand though, often these deeper points are the first ones that need to be addressed.

Magnesium chloride alone can be highly effective
in quickly healing the breasts of precancerous
syndromes and is highly prevenitive of cancer.

Iodine is a crucial antioxidant and apoptosis-inductor with anti-tumoral and anti-atherosclerotic activity. When we supplement with iodine we will see increased antioxidant activity[ii] and immune system function.[iii] Thus we should not be surprised when Dr. Tullio Simoncini states, “Every tumour of the skin can be completely removed with Iodine Tincture 7%, brushed many times (10-20) per day. When the crust is formed, don’t take it away, but treat the area continuously and wait till it falls without any other intervention except the Iodine tincture. When the crust falls down the third time, the patient is healed.” (See chapter on Transdermal Iodine Use)

Iodine is absolutely essential especially in the age of increasing radiation, necessary in the extreme to protect our thyroids and maintain normal mitochondrial function. With increasing radiation levels and carcinogenic fluoride threatening our thyroids and the fact that iodine also helps eliminate heavy metals like mercury and lead, it has become more than extremely important. (See chapters on Iodine and Chelation and the general chapter on iodine.)

In the 21st century the center of pharmacology needs to be
shifted away from medicines that add to peoples already heavy
toxic burdens to medicines and protocols that reduce these burdens.

According to the National Foundation for Cancer Research the value of minerals as part of an anticancer diet is frequently overlooked. However, minerals can play a vital role in fighting cancer. A prime example is the mineral selenium, which has powerful antioxidant properties. Selenium (Se) is an essential micronutrient with important biological and biochemical functions in organisms because of its unique antioxidant properties and its ability to regulate thyroid gland metabolism. It is well known that Se is an antagonist that moderates the toxic effects of many heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead in organisms.

Minerals perform a number of important functions. They act as catalysts, thus playing a major role in metabolism and cell building. They regulate the permeability of cell membranes, maintain water balance and osmotic pressure between the inside and outside environment, influence the contractility of muscles and regulate the response of nerves to stimuli. Thus, these declining mineral values threaten us with certain declines in health and increases in diseases of many types unless we can compensate.

Minerals are essential for life and health and provide the
keys for the prevention of cancer or its reoccurrence.

Magnesium is a universal medicine unequalled in the allopathic universe yet it, along with iodine, the universal medicine widely accepted and acknowledged a hundred years ago, are both nutritional substances that are available in foods and as isolated substances available at any local health food store. No prescription or doctor needed. Both magnesium and iodine are much safer and much more effective than the best that allopathic medicine has to offer. They are also more then necessary because the majority, perhaps as high as 90 percent of the population, is deficient in both magnesium and iodine. Most estimates of vitamin and mineral deficiencies in populations are based on the RDA (Federal Required Daily Allowance) which are set obscenely low.

Dr Seeger and Dr Budwig in Germany have shown that cancer is mainly the result of a faulty energy metabolism in the powerhouses of the cells, the mitochondria. ATP and most of the enzymes involved in the production of energy require magnesium. A healthy cell has high magnesium and low calcium levels. The problem that comes with low magnesium (Mg) levels is the calcium builds up inside the cells while energy production decreases as the mitochondria gradually calcify.

It is known that carcinogenesis induces magnesium distribution disturbances, which cause magnesium mobilization through blood cells and magnesium depletion in non-neoplastic tissues. Magnesium deficiency seems to be carcinogenic, and in cases of solid tumors, high levels of magnesium inhibit carcinogenesis.[iv] Both carcinogenesis and magnesium deficiency increase the plasma membrane permeability and fluidity.

Researchers all over the world have confirmed the vital role that magnesium holds in the avoidance and healing of the modern day plagues of diabetes, heart disease, strokes, cancer, neurological disorders and numerous musculoskeletal problems in both children and adults. What we have found is that magnesium chloride, applied transdermally, is the ideal magnesium delivery system with health benefits unequalled in the entire world of medicine.

Several studies have shown an increased cancer rate in regions with low magnesium levels in soil and drinking water as well. In Egypt the cancer rate was only about 10% of that in Europe and America. In the rural fellah it was practically non-existent. The main difference was an extremely high magnesium intake of 2.5 to 3 g in these cancer-free populations, ten times more than in most western countries.[v]

The American Cancer Society states that diabetes increases the risk of developing colon cancer by 30 to 40 percent. This increase in colon
cancer has recently been linked to the use of injected insulin raising the clear and present danger that today’s rDNA insulins are carcinogenic.

Getting slim pill-DANGER!

Weight loss pill warning issued

Thursday, 19 July 2007, 16:29 GMT 17:29 UK

A weight-loss drug used by thousands is unsafe for those also taking antidepressants, health watchdogs warn.

The European Medicines Agency advises patients with ongoing major depression or those on antidepressants against taking rimonabant.

About 41,000 UK patients have been treated with rimonabant since it was launched in the UK in June 2006.

Last month US safety officials voted to ban the pill amid concerns about increased suicide risk.

Rimonabant, brand name Acomplia, is currently recommended for obese patients with a risk of developing diabetes or cardiovascular disease.

It works by blocking receptors in the part of the brain that regulates food intake and the body's ability to break down sugars and fats in the blood.

The UK's National Institute of Clinical and Health Excellence is currently appraising the drug for use on the NHS.

The EMEA said doctors in the EU had been warned "of the risk of psychiatric side effects" since June 2006 but it was now upgrading this warning.

Evidence suggests that one in 10 people who take rimonabant may develop psychiatric side effects.

The commonest psychiatric side effects are low mood and depression. Anxiety, irritability, nervousness and sleep disorders may also occur.

Approximately one patient in every 100 may experience suicidal thoughts.

Up to the end of June 2007, the UK's drug safety regulator, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, had received a total of 318 cases, from UK sources, of adverse drug reactions which were suspected to have been caused by rimonabant.

This included 364 psychiatric reactions. Amongst these, there were 48 reports of depression, 16 reports of suicidal thoughts and one report of self-injury.

The MHRA advised: "If you start to experience symptoms of depression while taking Acomplia, or if you are currently being treated with antidepressants, consult your doctor.

"If you have had depression in the past but feel well on Acomplia, you should continue treatment with Acomplia and discuss your treatment with your doctor at your next routine appointment."

Sanofi-aventis, the drug company that makes Acomplia, said the product's labelling had been updated accordingly.

"Acomplia is now contraindicated in patients with ongoing major depressive illness and/or ongoing anti-depressive treatment.

"'Special Warnings and Precautions' of the Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC) have been updated as well to include information on depressive disorders," a statement from the company said.
