Stevia and FDA scam

What’s natural about a completely fake artificial sweetener, just because it started as a plant? So did Vincristine and Vinblastine, both deadly chemo agents. They come from the periwinkle plan (Vinca major).  Opium started as a plant… So did Belladonna (Deadly Nightshade). I could go on! Isn’t it odd that the plant Stevia is dangerous according to the FDA but as soon as some big shot corporation with dollars to bribe the FDA officials comes along, suddenly adulterated Stevia is fine! The FDA has spent decades attacking Stevia, impounding it, harassing importers and trying to put them out of business, generally being bullying and heavy-handed, as the FDA likes to. Stevia isn’t new. It’s been used for centuries as a sweetener in South America and is used Japan. But in the US Stevia may only be sold as a dietary supplement — not as a sweetener or a food additive — due to the FDA’s safety concerns. Actually the FDAs “concern” was keeping it’s cronies at Monsanto happy, by stamping down the competition for their deadly sweetener aspartame. Then along comes “Truvia”, a bastardized form of Stevia, and suddenly the FDA is stevia-friendly: GRAS “generally recognized as safe”. Truvia, a new Stevia product developed by Cargill and Coca-Cola, isn’t settling for supplement status. It’s set to debut later this year as a tabletop sweetener and ingredient in certain Coca-Cola...

Auto-immune disease and allergy

I first wrote about this in my books in the 1980s. I endorse her story but it was pre-written by great pioneers, decades ago! In THE AUTOIMMUNE EPIDEMIC: Bodies Gone Haywire in a World Out of Balance—and the Cutting Edge Science that Promises Hope, Donna Jackson Nakazawa, herself afflicted with Guillan Barre syndrome (an autoimmune disease), and other autoimmune diseases, lays forth the disturbing ways that “autogens” — a term Nakazawa coined to denote chemical and other triggers of autoimmune disease — are wreaking havoc with the human immune system. She offers a clear course for hope, detailing the personal, political, and economic choices that can help curb this epidemic before it is too late. THE AUTOIMMUNE EPIDEMIC combines up-to-the-minute research emerging out of dozens of today’s cutting-edge scientific labs with the frontline perspective of autoimmune sufferers. Nakazawa explores vital topics including: What role chemicals, heavy metals, viruses, diet, and genes play in developing autoimmune disease •How our modern lifestyles and environmental contamination have created a “perfect storm” – the ripest possible conditions for today’s autoimmune epidemic to take hold The connection between autoimmune disease and allergies, the rates of which are likewise skyrocketing The disturbing fact that 75% of autoimmune sufferers are women—and one in nine women will be afflicted with these diseases The fact that the average American woman is eight times more likely to have autoimmune...

oxygen aids chemo and radiation. time for O2 therapy?

This week an interesting new study published has shown us that scientists are close to developing a simple way to measure oxygen levels in tumors, giving doctors a heads-up about what kind of treatment is best for individual patients. It’s about time. Oxygen helps kill tumors, that’s now official. But they still argue it’s wrong to give oxygen! Read more...

Osteoporosis Affects Men Too

Osteoporosis, the bone thinning disease, affects mainly older women. It’s not a problem to men, right? Wrong. Men do get it and generally it goes undiagnosed. Older women are routinely screened for osteoporosis, a condition in which the bone becomes porous, says Amir Qaseem, a senior medical associate at the American College of Physicians. An estimated 20% of women 50 and older have osteoporosis. But little attention has been paid to the male version of the disease. So it gets missed. Qaseem and his colleagues reviewed the evidence culled from more than 200 scientific studies. They found that osteoporosis strikes about six of 100 men by age 65, and they recommend that doctors start to screen men at that age. Risk factors for osteoporosis include low body weight, physical inactivity, a history of bone fracture not caused by substantial trauma, smoking and low levels of calcium and vitamin D. Men who have taken medication to treat prostate cancer also are at risk, the report says. The so-called anti-androgen drugs, such as Lupron and Finasteride. The guidelines also suggest that doctors order a bone scan for men found to be at risk. A bone scan, or a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, is a painless procedure that identifies thin bone. Just don’t bother with the Fosamax and other junk they will shove on you. Know that boron is a potent enhancer of...
