Read health information with your whole brain!!

Folks, are you reading health information using your whole brain? Can you find the mainstream madness and double-mindedness in this statement?

"The kinds of food rich in K2 (organ meats, eggs, and dairy) should not be eaten in excess. This is why supplementation is so important. The Japanese, who eat large quantities of a fermented soybean food, have lower rates of heart disease because of K2."  Source:

Real food that contains K2 is too unhealthy to eat regularly, but it's okay to take a supplement? WHY? This is the kind of Bovine Recycled Grass that comes from those who do not understand nutrition, or who may be hawking supplements. If the Japanese can eat "large quantities" of soybean food (is this sponsored by the soybean industry?), why can't I drink my RAW MILK or eat farm-fresh EGGS or BUTTER liberally? BECAUSE all the brainwashing and vilification of SATURATED FAT would come UNDONE!!!! The Diet Dictocrats would be EXPOSED for the frauds they are!!!

Stearic acid, a saturated fat, is the preferred source of energy for the heart. Where is this wonder food found? In beef tallow! (You might call it "steer"-ic acid.) Beef tallow has 14,000 mg of stearic acid per 100 g. Jonathan Lizotte, founder of Designs for Health, says, "In fact, there is a move in the food industry to enrich fats with stearic acid as an alternative to hydrogenation because of the beneficial effects of stearic acid on lipids and thrombosis." By the way, stearic acid is also found in real chocolate and coconut oil. Mind you: If it's not already there, stearic acid will be patented as a drug for heart disease.

Dr. James Howenstine wrote about Vitamin K2's benefits in removing plaque from the arteries. Vitamin K2 works better to keep the arteries clean than the drug Coumadin, which showed that calcium built up in the aortic valve and coronary arteries. Calcium in the arteries is a KILLER! If you are drinking LOW-FAT MILK, you might want to think twice. It's the fat in the milk that helps the calcium get to the bones and teeth. Without the fat, you are more prone to osteoporosis and/or a heart attack.

A study was done comparing margarine and butter. Teachers were given a special margarine and a diet that included cold cereal, low-fat milk, and no saturated fats. Bankers were instructed to eat butter, steak, and high fat. At the end of the study, the teachers had a slightly lower cholesterol, and EIGHT of them had died during that time. NONE of the bankers died. (Pity, but that's another rant.)

Lord Strathcona, Canada's High Commissioner to England in the late 1800s, ate very little other than eggs — and lived well into his 94 year --on a diet consisting mostly of eggs, butter, and milk. Mind you, this was a century ago and the quality of the food was vastly different. But here's his story, as told by an observer:

Stefansson writes: "I had many opportunities to observe the High Commissioner while I was in London, for he frequently invited me to dinner at his home... Strathcona, a broad-shouldered man taller than six feet, would be seated at one end of the long table, Lady Strathcona at the other. As course after course was served to the rest of us, he would converse, drinking a sip or two of each wine as it was poured. Sometime during the middle of the dinner, his tray was brought: several medium-soft boiled eggs broken into a large bowl, with plenty of butter and with extra butter in a side dish, and, I believe, a quart of whole milk, or perhaps half-and-half. My impression is that they also brought him toast, but that he barely nibbled it, using it a bit as if it were a napkin."

Smart People Say No to (legal) Drugs

If you take a prescription drug that has been FDA-approved ~~ I don't know any other way to say this ~ you are stupid. Here are the uncomfortable facts:

  • Death by hospital: 119,000 people a year in the US  
  • Death by legal, FDA-approved drugs: 106,000 people are killed  
  • Serious adverse drug reactions: 2,000,000 people a year. 4th leading cause of death. 350,000 nursing home patients.
The FDA, amazingly, admits this.

To contrast, Zheng Xiaoyou was the chief of China's State Food and Drug Administration. He was found guilty of taking bribes and approving a dangerous antibiotic, and he was executed. Ten (10) people had died. That's ten, as in ten. 

But in the Land of the Free, life is not so dear. What other industry could be such a literal, bloody failure and yet be solidly, immutably, and omnipotently empowered with the sacred responsibility to protect a nation from that very tragedy??  We are dead, Horatio.  The people appointed to protect us are killing us.

Maybe that's the problem.

Not one of the people at FDA is elected. Not one has to stand up to public inquiry and scrutiny. Not one. Every single FDA employee is there because of politics. The top honchos are cronies of CongressCritters or the Offal Office, and the grunts are there only so long as they go along and keep their mouth shut.   

Aspartame is a case in point. When the political regime in Washington changed in 1984, favors were called in to get it approved over the objections of key FDA scientists who were disgusted at the shoddy spurious science presented by G.D. Searle, whose chief was Donald Rumsfeld, who was now a Washington insider, who got his crony Arthur Hull Hayes appointed as FDA Chief, who did his boss's bidding, and who disappeared from the political scene shortly thereafter. (But, you say, aspartame is a food additive. No, it was "discovered" as a drug and categorized as a food additive to intentionally avoid safety studies, which its formulators know would have damned it.)

And so it goes. Today, a CEO for Big Pharma. Tomorrow, a regulator of Big Pharma. Next week, after elections, back to Big Pharma.

If you trust the FDA to assure that your Rx drugs are safe, you might as well put your life in Joe Biden's hands, or Dick Cheney's, or Donald Rumsfeld's, or Janet Napolitano's, or Janet Reno's; this is not a Dem or Rep attack ~~ they are all viperous scalawags and each has innocent blood on his/her/its hands. Politics rules the FDA, not adherence to principles of medicine and health.

If you are not stupid, you understand this very well.

The Warriors that Monsanto Fears Most

 Dear MOTHERS, you are the warriors that make Monsanto pee its pants. If you cook from scratch, buy organic local food, avoid all GMO ~~ their stocks plummet and they die. You don't have to picket or take up arms: you get your butt in the kitchen and learn to cook! Your pots and pans are the weapons that will wield mortal blows to their dastardly schemes.

Let me make this personal, as the corpoRATe killers are making it personal. Kraft's UK product contains paprika for coloring. US macaroni product contains FD&C Yellow #5 and Yellow #6. Does this make you angry? It would if you knew that Yellow 5 is Tartrazine, a coal tar product and one of the worst artificial colors.

• Yellow 5 lowers levels of zinc, which is critical for proper immune functioning.
• Yellow 5 is known to cause asthma attacks. ASTHMA IS THE #1 REASON FOR SCHOOL ABSENTEEISM.
• Tartrazine is banned in Norway and was banned in Austria and Germany until the European Parliament lifted the ban. Studies had shown that tartrazine caused rash, dermatitis, asthma, and runny nose.
• Some anti-depressant medications (SSRI’s) used tartrazine until patients complained. Ironically, tartrazine increases clinical depression and other sensitivities.
• Yellow #5 has caused such severe reactions that the FDA requires that it be noted if contained in medication. None of the other certified dyes have this special requirement.

FD&C Yellow #5 contains Benzidine:
 • Benzidine, is a chemical that is ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to human health.
• Benzidine is known to be a carcinogen, cardiovascular or blood toxicant, gastrointestinal or liver toxicant, immunotoxicant, kidney toxicant, and neurotoxicant.
• Benzidine was one of the first chemicals for which an association of occupational exposure and increased incidence of urinary bladder cancer in humans was reported.
• Many studies have found far more Benzidine in food than the allowed 1 ppb, up to 270ppb.
FD&C Yellow 6, also called Sunset Yellow, is another coal tar derivative widely used in medications. Sunset Yellow is banned in Norway. Symptoms of reaction include:
• allergic reactions
• nausea
• vomiting
• abdominal pain
• tumors
• hyperactivity

US Kraft Mac 'n Cheese also contains a form of MSG, whey protein concentrate. MSG is injected into certain lab rats to cause OBESITY. MSG causes migraines, mood swings, violent behavior, depression.

Know what, MOTHER? You are already in the war. You walk into the grocery store, and you are in Enemy Territory. You gonna fight? Or would you rather watch your child struggle to breathe? Would you rather argue with doctors who insist on Ritalin, or buy a cookbook and make a menu?

Here is Basic Training:

1. Learn about FD&C colors.  

2. Learn about Real Food and the Traditional Diet.

3. Get Nourishing Traditions, the best cookbook in the world.

Want to advance in the ranks? Earn your "General Obnoxious Pain-in-the-Corporate Pocketbook" medal: Plant a garden with heirloom seeds. Seek out grass-fed meats, milk, and eggs.

Make your kitchen your Queendom and your home the Castle where your children and family are safe from the enemy. Don't let laziness or indifference be the Achilles Heal in your armor that lets the enemy in. Purpose in your heart that you are the only thing standing between your child and those who want to eliminate him as a "Useless Eater." If it helps, put on your Wonder Woman or Zena Princess Warrior garb...figuratively, of course (unless you shop at Walmart, but I hope that's not the case!). See yourself as a formidable, valiant force that intends on rearing healthy, strong, vital children who will grow up to be fertile and wise and do the same, blessing you with the most gorgeous grandchildren in the world.
