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: 11/20/14 Antidepressants, serotonin, itching and pain: The fact is that scratching an itch only makes it
worse. When you scratch that itch, it causes the brain to release serotonin - which only intensifies the itch sensation.
We actually scratch to cause pain that temporarily masks the itch sensation by sending pain signals through the
spinal cord instead of itch signals. The brain then responds to the pain signals by producing serotonin to “help
control that pain” but magnifies the itch intensity. Serotonin is a neurochemical that helps regulate growth, aging,
bone metabolism, mood while dulling down pain among things. Antidepressants increase serotonin levels to mask
depression but they also interfere with both pain and itching signals. Treating symptoms with drugs always causes
problems somewhere else. Did you know that Paxil alone has 186 common side-effects including pain and itching?
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: 11/21/14 PC double-speak: Now the Nanny Capital - NYC is forbidding the Ebola “E-
bomb” from being used over the radio. If that wasn’t enough, the double-speak department of feel-good has
replaced a suspected Ebola case announcement with the warm-fuzzy label of “Travel Fever” - or “TF” for short.
Merriam Webster defines doublespeak as language that can be understood in more than one way and that is used
to trick or deceive people; language used to deceive usually through concealment or misrepresentation of truth.
Under these rules, abortion becomes a Near-Life Experience, alcoholics are Anti-Sobriety Activists and clumsy
people become Uniquely Coordinated. At this rate we are going to “PC” ourselves to death for certain - or should I
rather say “terminally inconvenience ourselves”?
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.
