Cholesterol is used by the body to maintain cell membranes, repair damaged cells and manufacture steroid
hormones, vitamin D and bile acids. Suppressing cholesterol can be a very bad idea.
Daily health posts for July 30, 2014:
Lifestyle: The USDA recently teamed up with the American Soybean Association to spend 34 million bucks of
our tax dollars planting GMO soybeans in Afghanistan as a small part of the 120 billion smackers we have already
sent there. The goal was to start a soy-farming industry under the guise of nutrition and economic development. But,
with free money comes no accountability. The American Soybean Association didn’t even bother to conduct a
feasibility study before shipping equipment and soybeans. Heck, they could have at least looked at a previous
viability failure a few years before that. Bottom line: 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. And the
final death-knell: the Afghanistan people just don’t buy soybean products no matter how much we spend on
marketing. Don’t like soybeans? At least the Afghans are smarter than Americans in that sense…
Food and Nutrition: The pitfalls of popcorn: Popcorn by itself is a great snack. Pop some organic popcorn in
some organic grapeseed oil, slather on some melted organic butter and dust it with sea salt. Yummeh! Bags of
popcorn nuked up in 2 minutes are a whole nuther story. The chemical butter flavoring in microwave popcorn alone
contains a very harmful nasty called diacetyl, which is linked to a rare form of lung disease. And that’s just the start!
The actual popcorn bags are made with non-stick Teflon and can cause cancer, thyroid disease, child development
problems, birth defects and increases infertility by 154%. Nuking the microwave popcorn sends the Teflon chemicals
into the popcorn and into the blood. Most of the cancers from this Teflon madness manifests in the liver, pancreas,
testicles, prostate and mammary glands. And movie popcorn… don’t even get me started on how bad that one is.
Medical Madness: Want to know what is sadder than having your doctor put you antidepressants? How
about finding out that those antidepressants cause birth defects but Big Pharma somehow failed to disclose that to
the public? Did you know that it is not uncommon at all for doctors to put pregnant ladies on this crap? Well, Big
Pharma is going back to court - again - because the antidepressants Lexapro and Celexa can do just that. The
latest lawsuit claims that "…(Big Pharma) fraudulently concealed the true risks associated with Lexapro and
Celexa…” This is just one more of the multitudes of lies and frauds perpetrated by Big Pharma. If you are depressed
you more likely need a good nutritionist and perhaps a successful and experienced therapist or spiritual counselor. If
your doc writes the prescription without warning you of side effects or offering diet/nutrition/lifestyle suggestions, they
are bad docs - very bad docs.
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: New research links eye trouble with iodine deficiency. They eyes
have some of the most sensitive nerves and muscles in the body. Therefore, troubles in the body often show up first
in the eyes. Retinal diseases cause people to lose night and side vision first and then develop impaired central
vision. Medical treatments are not at all effective against these problems because a lack of drugs and surgery does
not cause these conditions - but a lack of iodine does. Harvard Medical School found that retinal swelling is inversely
related to dietary iodine intake leading them to ponder the fact that iodine supplement could help treat eye diseases.
Of course, their conclusion is the usual “additional study is required”, so don’t wait on them. Iodine deficiency is
related to cancer, depression, general malaise and a plethora of health troubles.
