Cholesterol is produced in the liver and is used to repair and maintain cell membranes and manufacture steroid
hormones, vitamin D and bile acids. Fighting high cholesterol with chemicals is a very bad idea.
Lifestyle: 10/21/14 Gestational diabetes is becoming a fairly common and growing problem. The latest research
out in the journal Diabetologia shows that eating fried food regularly before conception brings an elevated risk of
developing gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes (GDM) is characterized by high blood
glucose readings during pregnancy and most especially in the last trimester. GDM can lead to increased birth
weight of the child, jaundice, stillbirth and other complications. Diet rocks when it comes to preconception health as
well as pregnancy health and the health of the newborn. Love yourself and love your unborn child. Avoid GMOs,
processed foods, gluten, fried foods and alcohol starting before conception. Eat plenty of raw veggies and fatty fish.
Don’t forget to take your prenatals - including a daily dose of folate as methylfolate. Folic acid is NOT the best thing
to take and I never recommend taking it.
Food and Nutrition: 10/23/14 Scientists reported in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that olive
oil beat corn, soybean and sunflower oil for frying because olive oil withstands the heat better than most seed oils
and also brings with it a healthier food quality. Frying food is one very popular way to prepare food. Fried chicken,
French fries, pancakes, eggs, hamburger - along with whatever the latest carnival fad food is from butter to ice
cream... The fact is that when any frying oil is reused it always degrades; which leads to the formation of harmful
compounds that are potentially toxic and also lowers the nutritional value of the food being fried. Besides this, who
wants to cook with and eat GMO oils? If you are eating out, ask what your fries are dunked in before you order them.
GMO cottonseed oil is one of the more popular fryer oils out there.
Medical Madness: 10/17/14 Costly ebola misstep: The recent outbreak of Ebola virus has pretty much
everything in common with the 1976 outbreak - except we were smarter about it back then. Both outbreaks were
caused by Zaire ebolavirus 2 that began in rural forest communities. Severely ill victims made their way to provincial
hospitals with systemic illness. Unsuspecting personnel had contact with ebola patients' blood and body fluids and
the outbreaks amplified. The 1976 outbreak came to a head when 13 hospital staffers became sick, of which 11
died, and the hospital was closed. Out of genuine mistrust of Western medicine, infected people fled back to their
home villages and sought treatment from traditional healers. The government then quickly quarantined 275,000
people in the region and allowed no commercial planes or boats in or out. Citizens were told not to leave their
villages or allow strangers to enter. Ebola victims were isolated in huts outside their villages. Bottom line, the 1976
outbreak was contained. 36 years later we lost our freaking minds… If it comes to your community what will you do?
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: 10/21/14 Death by Ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding
and loss of blood. The Ebola virus gobbles up all available vitamin C from the body and consequently weakens
blood vessels so you start losing blood while blood-clotting platelets become unable to trigger clots. This deadly
spiral can be easily broken by simply taking enormous doses of vitamin C ascorbic acid until the immune system
can successfully eliminate the virus. According to Cathcart (1981), Ebola and the other acute viral hemorrhagic
fevers may well require 500,000 mg of vitamin C daily - just to reach bowel tolerance! Vitamin C helps the immune
system destroy viruses by activating the ‘Fenton reaction’ inside the virus to stop it from replicating. The optimal
delivery system during an Ebola infection would be a constant IV drip. Good luck finding one of them if Ebola gets
out of hand. Second best (IMO) would be orally dosing 20g of ascorbic acid every hour or so and/or administering it
in enema form. If you have an active Ebola infection, you can handle that or more ascorbic acid. Keep in mind that
vitamin C is not a “cure” for Ebola. Only the human immune system can destroy it once it invades the body.
Daily HealthTrivia: 10/15/14 Pinkwashed trivia: The Dutch national health system looked at 25,000
mammograms taken on ladies over 69 years old and found that they were 2,000% more likely to have their lives
ruined by mammogram over-diagnosis/misdiagnosis than to be saved by mammograms.
