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: 03/30/15 Appetite rules: In an inane attempt to “protect” people from their own self destruction, Los
Angeles has designed an ordinance intended to curtail obesity in low-income areas. How? By eliminating any new
fast-food restaurant startups. But, the fast-food restrictions passed back in 2008 have actually heralded new and
higher obesity rates that actually surpass the obesity rate increases in unregulated parts of the city. (The area
subject to these fast food rules contains about 700,000 low-income residents). Access to cheap and highly
superficial foods has become a birthright for all Americans. Predatory big food companies are lined up to rake in the
coins tossed their direction by the feckless masses. Obesity is not a problem that laws and ordinances will fix. Man,
by and large, is driven by appetite and not by common sense.
Food and Nutrition: 03/31/15 Organic lettuce packs some great health benefits health being rich in
antioxidants. Antioxidants protect against free radical processes that cause cell damage in the body associated with
various diseases. Lettuce contains several different antioxidants like phenolic acids, flavonoids, anthocyanins, along
with vitamins A and C and other nutritious compounds. But not all lettuce is created equal. The color of the lettuce
leaf actually tells you the speed at which their antioxidant compounds act. Recent study results show that the green-
leaf lettuce contains water-soluble, antioxidant compounds that act at slow and intermediate kinetic speeds while the
red-leaf lettuce has compounds with intermediate and rapid kinetic speeds. A semi-red-leaf has all three
compounds; rapid, intermediate and slow speeds. The speeds the work at actually do not make one lettuce better
than the other as we need all three antioxidants, but mixing all three together has an interesting potential for
wonderful health benefits.
Medical Madness: 03/25/15 Breast cancer survivors that go the conventional medicine route have more than
a 50 times risk of now facing thyroid cancer. First the doctors slice and dice your lady parts then make you glow like
a radium watch dial at night from a prolonged assault with radiation while they jack you over with chemotherapy
drugs that make you sick enough to die - literally… Did you know that if you never get breast cancer, your risk of
thyroid cancer is 0.3%? That’s 1 out of 300 ladies. BUT! If you are ever treated for breast cancer your 10-year
chances for thyroid cancer leaps to 50 out of 300. This is IF you survive the treatments at all - which only 1.4% of
chemo-treated breast cancer cases actually make it 5 years according to the publication Clinical Oncology. Truth be
told, most breast tumors need no treatment at all. Breast cancer is merely a symptom of something gone awry in the
body and chemotherapy, radiation and surgery never treat the root causes. If you are ever diagnosed with any type
of cancer at all, beat feet to a good nutritionist post-haste and seek out a successful naturopathic physician
experienced in natural cancer treatment. Or become a repeat cancer customer for the medical system until you are
dead - or worse yet, sick, broke and left for dead.
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: 03/26/15 Did you know that Argentina dispenses natural Pau
d’Arco to patients with leukemia and cancer? Brazil sells Pau d’Arco for cancer treatment in herb stores as well as
regular pharmacies. This is because Pau d’Arco is used in South America by doctors with great results in cancer
treatment. The whole herb Pau d'Arco is rich in cancer-fighting compounds like lapachol, quinoids, benzenoids,
flavonoids, and beta-lapachone making this wonder-herb anticandidal, antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial anti-
inflammatory, antimalarial, antiparasitic, insecticidal, analgesic as well as antileukemic, antitumorous and
anticancerous. Meanwhile, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in the US wrongly declares that Pau d’Arco’s side
effects are “too dangerous” for combating cancer… What the NCI is so het up about of course, is the totally synthetic
and isolated big pharma version of Pau d’Arco’s naturally balanced lapachol - but they conveniently overlook that
pesky and potentially costly detail. After all, if something natural works better than patented drug treatments AND the
word got out - well, big pharma would lose a whole lot of credibility and money. Oh, I forgot to mention that Pau
d’Arco is also anti-allergy, antiulcerous , anticoagulant, antidysenteric, antioxidant, anti-rheumatic, antivenin,
astringent, cardiotonic, hepatotonic, and immunostimulant. I take mine daily in tea.
Daily HealthTrivia: 03/27/15 Really hip trivia: What's the deal? The number of total hip replacements almost
doubled in the last decade among 45-64 year oldsters according to the American Academy of Orthopedic
Surgeons. If you are 45 years old and already need a hip hacked out of your body and replaced, what the heck are
you doing to yourself to get into that condition? This is just one more indicator of the declining health in America...
