Cholesterol is something your body needs to maintain cell membranes, repair damaged cells and manufacture
steroid hormones, vitamin D and bile acids. Suppressing cholesterol can be a very bad idea.

Lifestyle: Did you know that essential oils are also great food preservatives? A new study out in the Journal of
Food Science shows how essential oils may even be used in commercial food packaging to help extend the shelf-
life of food products - naturally! Essential oils are concentrated mixtures of aromatic oily liquids and volatile
compounds extracted from the roots, peels, leaves, seeds, fruits and bark of different plants. Essential oils are
loaded with antioxidants that scavenge free radicals, neutralize peroxides, prevent lipid oxidation (rancidity), and
much more. Essential oils are also antimicrobial. Adding essential oils into food packaging is called “active or smart
packaging” that not only knock-out germs but also strengthen the stretchability of films while improving moisture
barriers to prevent food spoilage.
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: Need some help getting to sleep? Does melatonin give you a
“hangover” in the morning? What you probably really need is ornithine. The amino acid ornithine helps you sleep
through the night and is actually necessary for a healthy immune system. What ornithine does is break down
ammonia and residual alcohol in the body and brain. It literally cleans out the brain sleep centers while helping you
use your available melatonin. Ornithine also prompts the release of natural growth hormones to accelerate the
metabolism of excess body fat, aids in liver regeneration, stimulates insulin secretion and helps insulin work for
muscle building. 2,500mg at bedtime is what I recommend for an adult. Make sure it is just plain ole ornithine and not
mixed with arginine if you want sleep success. Arginine is great in the morning for waking the brain up.
Daily HealthTrivia: Standardizing salmonella trivia: Did you know that the USDA standards allow 7.5% of
whole raw chickens sold at the grocers to carry salmonella but there is absolutely NO limit for contamination in
