Every cell in the body requires the trace mineral iodine for healthy function. Even thyroid hormones are put together with iodine plus the amino acid tyrosine. Thyroid hormones set metabolic rates in the body and are needed for cellular activities – including cell division. Iodine, fluoride, chlorine and bromine are called halogens and share the same “key slot” pathway that iodine uses to enter the cell. But fluoride, chlorine and bromine get stuck and block this key slot entry point to prevent iodine from entering the cell, causing cellular dysfunction. This is why you can test for plenty of thyroid hormones in the blood but still have all the symptoms of a thyroid deficiency. Excess fluoride and chlorine come mainly from our water treatment systems and dentifrices. Bromine is found in baked goods and breads. The more you take in fluoride, chlorine and bromine, the more these plug up your cellular pathways and the more hypothyroid you become. Taking supplemental iodine/iodide will cause osmotic pressure to push the fluoride, chlorine and bromine out of the cell key slots so iodine can once again do its job. If you take too much iodine/iodide to fast then the body has to deal with the extra fluoride, chlorine and bromine that is displaced all at once leading to the false conclusion that you are “allergic” to iodine. 16mg of iodide a day will maintain health but a lot more will be needed to recover lost health. Painting tummies, breasts or parts of limbs with staining iodine (like Povidine iodine) is another great way to boost iodine levels. Iodine stains should last 24hrs if you have optimal levels in your body.

Plasticizing chemicals are found in everyday food storage containers, food can liners, bags and even on store receipts and paper money. Exposure to these chemicals causes breast cancer cells to grow faster. Duke University found that this exposure not only contributes to breast cancer cell progression, but also diminishes chemotherapy efficacy. Plasticizers can even render common breast cancer cells completely treatment resistant – regardless of whether the cancer is estrogen receptor positive or negative. People avoiding all plastics for a month or more still had small levels of plasticizing chemicals in their urine from contact within 48 hours because this stuff is so ubiquitous in the environment today. Interestingly, plasticizers are also common in the very IV bags and tubing used to deliver chemotherapy drugs that are supposed to “fight” cancer. Does anyone else see the conundrum here? We switched to glass containers in our home while avoiding canned goods and other plasticizers sources like the plague. Should you?
Just what have we done to ourselves?
At the rate we are headed we will have over 80 million people suffering from dementia by the year 2040 – driving up health care costs and burdening families ~ Pitt School of Medicine.
We have to change our diets, lifestyles and inordinate love for medical drugs to stop this runaway train.
The whole vaccine issue has sparked a veritable war of hate on both sides of the issue. Angry pro-vaxxers sometimes insist that mercury found in vaccines is completely safe even though many studies and legitimate vaccine injury claims show otherwise. Sometimes there are pronouncements made by pro-vaccination side that mercury is no longer being added to vaccines – which is true only in part. “No mercury added” doesn’t make vaccines mercury-free as mercury is still used in process for a lot of vaccines – just no extra mercury is added to some of them. Meanwhile, preggos, infants, children, elderly, pedestrians and grocery shoppers are all encouraged to or even badgered into to lining up for mercury-toxic vaccinations. Government agencies shout out how toxic mercury is – that is, when it comes from other sources, but we are found to let our brains fall out of our heads when it comes to the sacred cow of vaccinations.
A veritable bouquet of toxins
Do you like your fish baked, broiled or fried? Baked and broiled fish contain higher levels of brain-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than fried fish because the fatty acids are more often damaged by the high heat of frying. A recent study in The American Journal of Preventive Medicine shows that people who have diets that include baked or broiled – but not fried – fish have larger brain regions associated with memory and cognition. Simply eating baked or broiled fish once a week brought up to 14% greater grey matter brain volumes in the areas of the brain responsible for cognition. The strange part of this study is that they found no relationship between the circulating blood levels of omega-3 and better brain health. The study conclusion was that eating baked or broiled fish at least once a week is just plain good for the brain. Bottom line: your diet today contributes to your brain health later in life.
Catch of the day is fish!
Palm oil shows up in about half of everyday goods. Truth be told, palm oil is a saturated fat – wrongfully condemned by scientists of yore who have since condemned saturated fat because of a study hypothesis from long ago. A 2010 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that there wasn’t even a link between saturated fat for either heart disease or stroke. In 2006, the Women’s Health Initiative discovered that eating less saturated fat hasn’t lowered rates of heart disease or stroke. The key is to pay attention to where those saturated fats come from and what they are found in. Palmitic acid found in palm oil, butter, and eggs and myristic acid found in cheese, milk, butter, and beef raise both LDL and HDL cholesterol, canceling each other out. Stearic acid in foods like chocolate and beef doesn’t even raise LDL at all and lauric acid found in coconut oil is deemed a superfood. The real culprits are in the crap diet foods, bagels, pizzas, factory eggs and other processed foods that contain saturated fats and trans fats.
It’s all about the processed food.

You may be a bit surprised to learn that the biggest mineral deficiency in the US is brought on by a lack of magnesium in the diet. Magnesium deficiency usually starts off with little aches and pains and a rundown feeling but soon escalates into leg cramps, foot pain, and muscle twitches. But then it develops into high blood pressure, anxiety, asthma, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, blood sugar imbalances, heart dysrhythmia, chest pains, kidney stones, CANCER and many other symptoms. Only take magnesium citrate, gluconate, chelate or malate by mouth. For PTSD take magnesium threonate (notice all the suffixes of “ate”). Never, ever take magnesium oxide internally as it neutralizes stomach acid, inhibits magnesium absorption and is a bowel irritant that can burn the lining of the intestines. A normal dose of magnesium is 500mg a day for an adult and 20mg per kg for a child.
Something this simple can be that big of a problem!
Every year a whopping 200,000 women develop breast cancer in the US. In light of this fact, yet another study published in the journal Stem Cells shows how cancer radiation treatments turned less malignant breast cancer cells into the more malignant induced breast cancer stem cells. The whole reason that chemotherapy radiation treatments seldom work on breast cancer cases is that cancer stems cells are especially resistant to these treatments. Chemotherapy radiation treatments “wake the dragon” to turn less harmful cancer into a virulent, invasive and uncontrollable disease. Now compare these facts to this: Natural treatments for breast cancer do not cause renegade cancer cells! Treatments for cancer using IV vitamin C, Gerson therapy, raw and vegan diets, enzyme therapy and supplements and herbs like selenium, turmeric and black cohosh and other non-invasive treatments are simple solutions that can bring up to 90% remission of cancer! And these treatments won’t cause your hair to fall out, skin to burn, mouth and gut to become inflamed, fatigue, anemia, lymphedema, extreme nausea or poisoned death.

Phosphatidylserine is an integral part of the cell membranes and is largely responsible for intracellular communication. Phosphatidylserine makes up close to 10% of the lipid content in the cell membrane of neurons. Phosphatidylserine supplements are commonly known as “brain boosters”; “memory enhancers” and as “stress busters”. Phosphatidylserine helps lower cortisol levels that are elevated by stress and/or heavy workouts. For ADHD, phosphatidylserine combined with omega-3 fatty acids can also bring a significant reduction in hyperactive/impulsive behavior. The very best phosphatidylserine comes from cows’ brains but a vast majority of phosphatidylserine supplements today are derived from the much inferior GMO soy – making them a lot less effective. For best results, always take phosphatidylserine in combination with a quality omega-3 fatty acid.

A recent UCLA study covers how breast cancer radiation treatments promote malignancy in cancer cells instead of supposedly eradicating them. Radiation therapy was shown to induce breast cancer cells to form even more tumors while causing malignancy in radiation treated breast cells at a whopping 30 times more compared to untreated tissues and cells. The red herring that suckers most women into this deadly mis-step is that radiation treatments actually do temporarily send tumors into regression. But then, the Pied Piper comes back for his payment… Soon after radiation treatment, the ratio of highly malignant cells to benign cells begins to spiral out of control leading to a treatment-induced death. UCLA further reports that radiation treatment transforms cancer cells into treatment-resistant breast cancer stem cells, even as it kills half of all tumor cells. Even though this is recent news, it is also just old news warmed over – but this news hasn’t slowed down the usage of worthless radiation treatments. Must be the money…

Even the most serious foodborne illnesses caused by pathogenic bacteria are defeated by the common cooking spice – cinnamon. Even better yet, cinnamomum cassia oil works effectively as a natural antibacterial agent directly in food to help improve food safety and reduce or even eliminate cases of food poisoning and related deaths. A recent study showed that low concentrations of cinnamon oil is highly effective against the top six strains of food-borne bacteria. To make a natural food wash for meats and vegetables, use 10 drops of the cinnamon oil per liter of water. For commercial food packaging the oil can be incorporated into films and coatings to eliminate deadly microorganisms. Think of what a few drops of this oil can do to freshen your dishwasher and clothes washer! This beats toxic chemicals hands down.
A majority of foodborne illness comes from green leafy foods.

Inorganic arsenic is classified as a first level carcinogen with negative effects on human health. There are absolutely no safe levels for inorganic arsenic anywhere; including that found in rice and rice-based foods. This makes for major health concerns for young children because rice is a very popular food source during child weaning, because exposure to high levels of arsenic raises the risk for cancer and heart disease. Children who get too much arsenic have lower IQs and poorer intellectual function. Testing finds that infants and young children typically have 2 to 3 times inorganic arsenic levels than adults. Rice naturally contains higher arsenic concentrations than other grains because it is grown in flooded rice paddies and has a unique physiology that takes up arsenic. High concentrations of inorganic arsenic are usually found in the bran layers – making a higher arsenic risk for rice bran products. But the bran is where the folate and other vital nutrients in rice thrive. Take away the bran and you are pretty much left with starch.
Hey kid, is that arsenic you’re eating?

It’s like straining at a gnat but swallowing a flame-retardant couch. If a piece of furniture that has been treated with flame retardant chemicals catches fire, it will give off much higher levels of deadly carbon monoxide, soot, and smoke. These byproducts are actually more likely to kill you than burns. But, the chemical industry stands behind them and swears that the flame retardants they sell save lives. But are these chemicals costing us more in poor health and deaths by disease than the lives they save? Studies are finding more and more that flame retardants in our environments cause cancers, developmental problems and other diseases. When you use flame retardants on furniture and in carpets, bedding and clothing, you are now subject to a daily assault of toxic chemicals. Natural materials like wool, latex and hemp have proven to resist or slow the spread of fire without sousing them with toxic flame retardants.
Fire safety doesn’t begin with chemicals

The latest research puts eye trouble together with iodine deficiency. They eyes contain some of the most sensitive nerves and muscles in the whole body and troubles in the body often show up in the eyes first. Retinal diseases cause a loss of both night and peripheral vision first and then move on to impair the central vision. The standard medical treatments are not effective against these problems because a lack of drugs and surgery does not cause these conditions in the first place – but a lack of iodine does. Harvard Medical School found that retinal swelling is related to dietary iodine intake. Of course, the conclusion is the always pat “additional study is required”. Don’t wait on them! Iodine deficiency is related to cancer, depression, general malaise and a plethora of health troubles. The Japanese people naturally get about 15mg of iodine in their diet a day. Americans get pretty much zip. 15mg a day will help stave off diseases but more will be needed if you are already sick.
Nothing worse than losing your vision a little at a time…

Our very own USDA partnered with the American Soybean Association to toss away 34 million bucks of our tax dollars by planting GMO soybeans in Afghanistan as a small part of the 120 billion smackers we have spent there already. This financial boon was intended to start a soy-farming industry under the pretense of boosting nutrition and aiding economic development. As goes with government handouts: with free money comes no accountability. The American Soybean Association didn’t even bother to do a feasibility study before shipping personnel, equipment, cash and soybeans overseas. If they would have bothered looking into a previous viability failure a few years before that they would have returned the money with an apology before they started. So, this is what happened to our money this time: the first crop failed; more soybeans were brought in; a special factory was built to process the desired soybean crops – which has to now be fed with imported soybeans. The final screaming death-knell: the Afghanistan people just don’t like to buy soybean products no matter how much we spend on marketing. They don’t like soybeans? At least the Afghans are smarter than Americans in that sense…
Doomed to fail but they didn’t care.
