War on plants had been waged by industry monopolists for entire last century, and the final chapter is already written in the UN. They did this already to the empirics and natural healers at the beginning of the 20th century but did not target individual people. Now they are going to and have already started to (by The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act of 2007) target everyone, including regular people as well.
An abundance of nutrients in coastal areas created by runoff filled with synthetic fertilizers from farmland leads to excessive algal blooms. Algae blooms are dangerous. Microalgae create and excrete some of the most potent neurotoxins known to man.
Farmed fish have up to ten times the levels of pollutants than wild fish. Fish waste and also uneaten feed drop to the bottom beneath these farms and start to decompose. Also, the excrement of the animals themselves is used as fish feed. In order to cope with these conditions farmed fish are vaccinated as minnows. After vaccination fish is always on antibiotics and pesticides.
Most of the pesticides and especially heavy metals and other toxic waste pollutants we get, we get from meat. More than 80 percent of pesticide exposure in the standard American diet comes from animal products, not from fruits or vegetables.
There are many health talks in the health and nutrition community about the benefits of higher alkalinity water and “ionized” water. Alkalinity or acidity of water has nothing to do with the water at all. What science has to say about it?
Sulforaphane is the most potent natural phase 2 enzyme-inducer know to science. It is also demonstrated that sulforaphane is a dose-related inhibitor of carcinogen-induced mammary tumorigenesis.
There are programs of dieting that are designed to help reduce inflammation and overall body toxicity that are backed by science. They are all based on a natural whole food plant-based diet with a low level of environmental toxin exposure.
Man-made sources of EMF radiation such as power grids, mobile phones, computers, Wi-Fi routers, TVs, microwave ovens, radar, and radio transmitters provide continuous low-level radiation. The situation can only get worse.
What happens when we exercise or go on a restrictive diet?
In the health community exercising has almost a mythical status as one of the best things you can do for yourself except for avoidance of smoking. It is a cost-effective and proven way to reduce mortality. Most importantly it is a way that most people can accept.
There is a form of diet that is not related to weight loss primarily. It is a diet primarily designed for utilizing autophagy called intermittent fasting. To do a full-calorie restriction diet is a hard choice.
What happens when our regular metabolism burns energy for life? Some of that energy escapes and does damage to DNA. The higher the metabolism, the higher the damage, and the higher the division. Every time a cell divide it clips the telomere in half.
We all want to have muscle mass as much as possible and fast metabolism as much as possible so that we can eat more and don’t gain weight. The question is how normal is this and what is the price of constant eating with no restriction even if we don’t gain executive weight? Evolutionary biology will again tell us what is healthy.
Somehow we all believe that one glass of wine is not all that bad and can actually be good and health-promoting because of all of the antioxidants from the grapes. People are not aware that alcohol does other things than “just” killing our brain cells or stressing our liver. It is a genotoxic, cancerous, pro-inflammatory mutagen.
In the US acrylamide is classified as a Group 2A carcinogen and as an extremely hazardous substance. In 2002 it was discovered in extremely high concentrations in potato chips and French fries. The concentrations were so high that these two types of food would be banned for children in any normal circumstances.
The paradox of the “Plant Paradox” is that people who eat more lectins (beans and whole grains) have less cancer.
There is no known animal in nature except modern humans that grills meat. When we heat amino acids (building blocks of protein) in the presence of creatine and monosaccharide sugars, they have a reaction and amino acids lose their molecular form. Our body does not recognize them as different, and this causes mutations to DNA.
As the level of fat in the bloodstream rises the ability of the body to clear sugar drops. The problem is that we are not designed to cope well with sizable saturated fat intake at a single sitting like carnivorous animals. They can eat to the extreme and we cannot.
Most people have a belief that refined carbs like white rice are terrible and that refined carbohydrates are associated with insulin spikes and diabetes. They are right. However, they are wrong at the same time.
People of European descent can drink milk and the rest of the globe cannot. There is, however, a lot of substances in milk besides lactose that none of us can tolerate.
