There is panic among the world population since the nuclear crisis in Japan began. People are worried about the radiation threat emerging from the nuclear power plant in Fukushima. They are Buying up all the Potassium Iodide Pills in health stores and online to try and protect themselves from radiation exposure.  

The reality is that every person, everyday is exposed to mild doses of harmful radiation. Everything we encounter in our daily lives contains some radioactive material, some naturally occurring and some man-made; the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the ground we walk on, and the consumer products we purchase and use all contain small amounts of radiation.

*It is not recommended that you consume Potassium iodide on a regular basis unless prescribed by a physician for certain illnesses. But it can’t hurt to have it around in case of a nuclear emergency.

If you feel you are at risk to radiation exposure make sure you take all necessary precautions and keep up with current radiation readings in your local area, you can also purchase a Geiger counter.

Recommended use of Potassium Iodide for Adults is 1-4 tablets per day and children 1-2 tablets per day for no more than 10 days. It is not recommended that pregnant or breastfeeding women and people allergic to iodide should consume Potassium Iodide. Potassium iodide product is not intended to be used as a long term daily supplement and should not be used for an extended period of time (over ten days) without consulting a physician.

Radiation Contamination

Radioactive contamination, also called radiological contamination, is radioactive substances on surfaces, or within solids, liquids or gases (including the human body), where their presence is unintended or undesirable, or the process giving rise to their presence in such places.
Excerpt from ~ International Atomic Energy Agency (2007). IAEA Safety Glossary: Terminology Used in Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection. Vienna: IAEA. ISBN 92-0-100707-8.

Radiation Poisoning

Radiation poisoning, radiation sickness causes damage to organ tissue through excessive exposure to ionizing radiation. The term radiation poisoning is generally used to refer to acute problems caused by a large dosage of radiation in a short period, though this also has occurred with long term exposure. The clinical name for radiation sickness is acute radiation syndrome (ARS) as described by the Center for Disease Control. Chronic radiation syndrome does exist but is very uncommon; this has been observed among workers in early radium source production sites and in the early days of the Soviet nuclear program. Short exposure can result in acute radiation syndrome; chronic radiation syndrome requires a prolonged high level of exposure.

Radiation exposure can also increase the probability of developing certain diseases, particularly cancer, tumors, and genetic damage or mutations. These are referred to as the stochastic effects of radiation, and are not included in the term radiation sickness.

Can Potassium Iodide Help Reduce the Effect of Radiation Exposure?

Potassium Iodide is a Thyroid Blocking Agent as it blocks the thyroid’s absorption of cancer-causing radioactive iodine released from a nuclear reactor or nuclear bomb. If taken prior to radiation exposure, the iodine pills counter the effect of the radioactive iodine on the thyroid. This process helps prevent the development of thyroid cancer on a long term basis.

How Does it Work?

Potassium Iodide is a compound that contains Iodine, a nutrient necessary for normal thyroid function. Iodine in the form of Iodide is an integral part of thyroid hormones, which regulate cellular metabolism and stimulate energy production. Potassium Iodide may be used when it is desirable to maintain a high level of beneficial iodides in the thyroid gland. Potassium Iodide naturally blocks the thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine. It also helps to maintain a healthy water balance and whole body pH by supporting the body’s normal detoxification processes, including the removal of heavy metals.

Curcumin for Osteoarthritis

Curcumin is derived from Tumeric

Image of Tumeric root and powder

Curcumin is a Ayurvedic herb that comes from the herb tumeric and has been used in India for centuries. A study published in the journal Alternative Medicine Review included 100 patients with osterarthritis.

The new study compared the effects of NSAIDs with NSAIDs plus the Meriva supplement – composed of 20 percent natural curcuminoid mixture, 40 percent phosphatidylcholine, and 40 percent microcrystalline cellulose. Subjects in the active group received a daily dose of 1,000 mg, which provided a daily curcumin dose of 200 mg. The control group received “best available treatment NSAID’s”.

Researchers followed the participants for eight months and found changes in the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities (WOMAC) score, used to measure the osteoarthritis variables, decreased from 80.6 to 33.2 in patients receiving NSAIDs plus the curcumin supplement. Researchers also reported that WOMAC scores for pain decreased by 9.3 points, while no change was observed in the control group. Stiffness decreased from 7.4 to 3.2, with no significant changes in the control group.

According to Indena, the combining the soy phosphatidylcholine with curcumin works to boost the bioavailability of the spice. Blending curcumin with soy phosphatidylcholine allows it to, “interact via hydrogen bondings and polar interactions with the complementary group, like the polar heads of phospholipids”, says Indena.

These findings suggest that curcumin may be a beneficial long-term therapy approach for people suffering with osteoarthritis.

What is Fibrocystic Breast Condition?

What is Fibrocystic Breast Condition?

Once referred to as Fibrocystic Breast Disease, it is a common, non-cancerous condition characterized by lumpy and painful breasts, which can worsen shortly before menstruation.

What causes fibrocystic breast conditions?

There may be many factors, but the largest contributor is the changing levels of many of the body’s hormones, predominately estrogen and progesterone. Monthly fluctuations of hormones with the menstruation cycle, signal glandular tissue in the breast to grow rapidly and retain fluid, causing swelling and tenderness. Unlike the sloughing-off process in the uterus during menstruation, where each month the cell lining that has rapidly formed is released from the body, the breast does not have a mechanism to slough off and dispose of cells left after each monthly cycle.

Over time, the accumulation of cells and fluid that are not absorbed by the body and left behind in the glandular tissue in the breast, along with inflammation caused by cell debris, make women over the age of thirty the most commonly affected by fibrocystic breast conditions.

If it’s a benign condition, should I be concerned?

Certainly the monthly discomfort and tenderness is something to consider addressing, but more importantly, and the largest risk involved with having fibrocystic breasts, is the condition’s similarity in look and feel to more serious types of breast lumps. Although there is no evidence that fibrocystic breast conditions contribute to or cause cancer, the presence of benign lumps can make it more difficult to perform an effective breast self exam. How does one feel the difference between a harmless lump and one that should be evaluated by a medical professional? Very dense fibrocystic tissue can even make it harder for mammograms to be effective by hiding potential cancerous cells.

Are there foods that contribute to fibrocystic breast conditions?

Some studies have suggested, but not proven, that phytoestrogens (plant-based estrogens) found in coffee, tea, chocolate and colas may contribute to the increase of fibrocystic conditions by acting in the same way as estrogen and progesterone. These phytoestrogens may trigger the same rapid cell growth in the breast that happens prior to menstruation as a result of the body’s hormones. Many women have experienced improvement in symptoms of breast tenderness and lumpiness by limiting or eliminating these foods from their diets.

Also reducing sodium intake will also help to reduce the fluid retention common in the period of time prior to menstruation along with the swelling of breast tissue which may cause discomfort.

What should I consider to help fibrocystic breast condition?

Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, may help with the symptoms of swelling and tenderness by its ability to reduce inflammation and fluid retention, common with fibrocystic breast conditions. It may also help slow the rapid growth of cells that contribute to the condition.

No one has been able to prove why Vitamin E is helpful with this condition, but it does appear to help with the symptoms.

Food sources of Vitamin E and some easy ways to add them to the diet:

Almonds - half a hand-full as a snack

Olives – add black or kalamata olives to chopped cucumbers, tomato, feta cheese and greens for a delicious green salad with an olive oil vinaigrette dressing.

Dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach and Swiss chard – Add fresh spinach to every salad and frozen spinach or chard to soups and pasta sauces.

Avocados – slice avocado and add to sandwich in place of mayonnaise or butter.

Salmon – brush lightly with pure maple syrup and low-sodium soy sauce and bake.

Wheat germ – sprinkle on morning cereal or add to baked goods, such as muffins or pancakes.

It may not be possible to get adequate amounts of Vitamin E to affect the condition by food sources alone, so supplementation of Vitamin E may be considered.

Studies have shown that women with fibrocystic breast conditions have experienced improvement of their symptoms with supplementation of natural Vitamin E. Keep in mind it is a fat-soluble vitamin, not a water-soluble vitamin, meaning the body stores excess amounts which in some cases can cause toxicity, so daily recommended dosages should be followed closely.

Natural Supplements for Bone Health

Tags: , ,

Would you use a drug that gives you the problem it’s supposed to prevent?

Well, that’s exactly what’s going on with the new osteoporosis drugs.

Fosomax, Boniva, Reclast, Actonel… these medications are supposed to help stop you from getting bone fractures as you get older. But we now have evidence that they cause bone breaks.

Researchers studied women taking these medications – called bisphosphonates – who experienced some sort of fracture. Over 65 percent had the same rare fracture in the same area of their thigh bones. And these were the women who had been on the drugs for the longest periods.

Plus they’ve also found that if you’re on the drugs for a long time and you do get a bone break, you’ll heal very slowly. Sometimes it can take two years!

It’s another example of how modern medicine doesn’t learn from its mistakes. They refuse to take a whole-body approach to healing. Instead they opt to treat individual symptoms with drugs designed only for those symptoms.

Your bones have cells called osteoclasts. Their job is to remove old bone tissue. This allows the bone to grow strong because other cells called osteoblasts then rebuild the bone. With osteoporosis and other bone diseases, there is an imbalance … either your osteoblasts aren’t making new cells fast enough, or osteoclasts are removing too much tissue. So drug companies came up with a way to stop osteoclasts from removing the old tissue, which also artificially increases your bone density: bisphosphonate drugs.

There are two problems with this.

1. By keeping your old bone tissue, you increase bone mass but make bones act older.

2. The drugs do the job by poisoning your osteoclast cells.

What happens is that you take the medicine, the osteoclasts absorb it, and it poisons the osteoclast cells by cutting off their blood supply. The cells then either work very slowly or die. Because they don’t take away the old tissue, your bones become denser. But they’re dense with old tissue and the osteoblasts can’t make new tissue if the old tissue is still there.

After a while, the old-bone tissue becomes brittle and fragile, like glass, because it’s not as strong as the newer bone that would have formed without the drugs. So you end up with technically “dense” but weak bones that can fracture.

The other thing that can happen that most people don’t know about is osteonecrosis. This is what happens when your bones are too dense with old tissue. There’s not enough space in the inner bone for your bone marrow, which keeps your bones alive. Your bones then start to die. This often happens in the jaw.

There are natural ways to increase your bone mineral density without any harmful side effects.

1. Vitamin D3 (calcifediol) is your number-one bone nutrient. Your body uses it in the process of making osteoclast and osteoblast cells. Sunshine as the best source of vitamin D. During the winter when you might not be able to get that much sun on your skin, you can:

  • Eat some mushrooms: They’re the only vegetable that has vitamin D.
  • Eat seafood: Everyone knows by now that cold-water fish have lots of vitamin D. But did you know that oysters have as much vitamin D as salmon? You get about 350 IU for every 3.5 ounces.
  • Eat liver: Pork and beef liver are good sources. Braunschweiger pork sausage has 27 IU for every 2 slices, and beef liver has 42 IU for every 3 oz.
  • Supplement: 3,000-5,000 IU of vitamin D3 per day.

2. Vitamin K is also important when it comes to maintaining strong bones. Vitamin K comes in two forms: K1 is found in leafy green vegetables and helps with blood clotting. K2 on the other hand aids with your bones’ absorption of calcium to help make them stronger. You can find K2 in a variety of different foods including egg yolks, organ meat, and organic milk. The recommended dosage for vitamin k is 90 – 100 mcg a day.

3. Hormones are building blocks for strong bones.

  • Estrogen and testosterone control the amount of calcium absorbed into your bones. And by maintaining proper levels in your body, the less likely your bones are to weaken and fracture.
  • Progesterone also plays a role. Studies show that the cycle of ovulation is also a cycle of bone formation. Progesterone levels drop after giving birth, and after menopause, so returning your levels to normal can be, according to one study, “extraordinarily effective in reversing osteoporosis.”

4. The more protein you eat, the easier it is for your bones to absorb calcium and the stronger your bones will become. You want to eat as many different kinds of protein as you can. When choosing animal protein, be sure to opt for natural, hormone-free meat and eggs. Grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, and cage-free eggs are good choices.

5. Weight-bearing exercise is one of the most effective ways to increase your bone strength and help prevent fractures. These include walking, bicycling, sprints, swimming or weight training. Focus on increasing intensity in all of these exercises.

Another benefit for your bones is that if you focus on increasing intensity, instead of increasing duration, you’ll lose weight and shed fat faster. This will reduce the amount of stress on your bones and joints, helping you prevent future injuries down the road.

How Natural are “Natural Flavours” Listed on Food Labels?

Posted January 13, 2011 by americannutrition
Categories: General, Natural Foods, Organic, Organic Foods, Pesticides in Food

Tags: , ,

You can find it on millions of food labels. But in this case “natural” comes with a definition that’s hard to believe. That’s because “natural flavors” can perversely “mean” any chemical approved for use in food. The FDA makes manufacturers declare if a flavoring has any of the eight major food allergens – milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts and soybeans.

But companies don’t have to tell you the sources of any other chemicals used for flavoring.

This deceptive labeling is particularly devious at the ready-made meal section of your grocery store. These are different from frozen TV dinners in that they look like meals made out of ingredients you might put together yourself.

The difference is that to preserve the meals for longer shelf life, and to make them look good in the package, the food is heavily processed with methods like these:

• boiling

• pressurizing

• oxidation

• osmotic inhibition

• freezing

• extremely high water pressure

• dehydration

• smoking (sometimes using carbon dioxide, vinegar or even alcohol)

• mineral removal through chelation

All of these processing methods leech the taste out of food. So food makers add chemicals back in to make what they’re selling taste like real food.

The flavors are created by chemists called “flavorists.” They distill flavors from foods before they get packaged, and then combine them with chemical compounds. These potent flavor potions are created to taste like the flavors that were processed out. Any food pre-packaged in a can, foil wrapper, sealed package, plastic container or box has a cocktail of natural flavorings added back in after it’s processed.

Even many organic foods have “natural flavors” added to them, too. Because the law doesn’t require companies to disclose the ingredients in their flavorings, they can maintain their “trade-secret” tastes used for products. They also can conceal the truth about the list of chemicals added to foods.

Example, the strawberry flavoring in a Burger King strawberry milk shake has 74 chemicals with names like amyl acetate and benzyl acetate. These chemicals are not “natural” and can harm your health. Amyl acetate is legal to be claimed as “natural” on a label. But it’s been linked to nervous-system problems, depression, indigestion, chest pain, headaches, fatigue and irritation of mucous membranes.

Benzyl acetate has been found to cause gastrointestinal, bronchial, eye and ear irritation, and that’s just two of the 74 chemicals in one drink.

Here are some ways to avoid consuming any of these unnatural and toxic chemicals, and find natural food with REAL flavor:

1. Go back to the basics. Our native ancestors ate what they could hunt and gather. And that was natural meats and eggs, veggies, unmodified fruits and nuts, and olives. They ate a lot more protein and fats than most modern Americans. And they ate fewer carbs – and no processed foods or food cooked with vegetable oils. As a result, their archaeological records show virtually no heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis or obesity.

2. Eat fresh, locally grown, organic fruits and veggies as much as you can. Food grown from local farms is much fresher than food at the grocery store. That’s because most produce is transported an average of 1,500 miles. And many of the nutrients get depleted during transit. But not only is locally grown food more nutritious, it also tastes great. And if the farmer uses organic methods, you don’t have to worry about consuming harmful pesticides and fertilizers.

3. If you have to shop at grocery stores, stay in the exterior aisles and stick to organic dairy, meats and produce. You can pretty much disregard everything in between. Those aisles are filled with nothing but processed foods loaded with harmful chemicals.

4. Read labels carefully, even for organic food. If you shop in the exterior of the grocery store, you won’t need to take this step. But if you ever need to grab something in the interior, check the labels of anything packaged in a can, box or plastic (even the organic stuff) for “natural and artificial flavors.” If you see these terms on labels, stay away.

S.510 to invoke Codex Alimentarius harmonization of global food supply

Posted December 30, 2010 by americannutrition
Categories: Food Safety, Food Safety Modernization Act, Global Food Supply

Tags: , ,
Such begins a new era of global food destruction headed by what can only be called the most dangerous government agency in North America: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If they do to your food what they’ve done to prescription drugs, annual food deaths will increase to over 100,000 a year.
Of all the talk about S.510, virtually no one has actually read the language in the bill — especially not those lawmakers who voted for it. The more you read from this bill, the more surreal it all becomes. For example, did you know there’s a global FDA power grab agenda hidden in the Food Safety Modernization Act? Keep reading and we’ll quote text straight out of the bill itself. 

Section 305 is entitled “BUILDING CAPACITY OF FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WITH RESPECT TO FOOD SAFETY” and it gives the FDA authority to set up offices in foreign countries and then dictate the food safety plans of foreign governments. It says, specifically, on page 217 of the bill (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-…):

SEC. 308. FOREIGN OFFICES OF THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION.
(a) IN GENERAL. – The Secretary shall establish offices of the Food and Drug Administration in foreign countries selected by the Secretary.

It then goes on to say:

(a) The Secretary shall, not later than 2 years of the date of enactment of this Act, develop a comprehensive plan to expand the technical, scientific, and regulatory food safety capacity of foreign governments, and their respective food industries, from which foods are exported to the United States.

Huh? The FDA is now going to run the food safety programs of foreign governments? Look out, world: I’m from the FDA and I’m here to help!

Homeland Security and U.S. Treasury also involved
So who is involved in creating this? Believe it or not, the global “food safety” plan is to be developed under consultation to the Department of Homeland Security as well as the U.S. Treasury. As the bill states:

(b) Consultation – In developing the plan under subsection (a), the Secretary shall consult with the Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the United States Trade Representative, and the Secretary of Commerce, representatives of the food industry, appropriate foreign government officials, nongovernmental organizations that represent the interests of consumers, and other stakeholders.

You might reasonably wonder “What does the Department of Homeland Security have to do with the FDA’s food safety plan?” Or “Why is the U.S. Treasury involved in the food supply?” Learn more about the Federal Reserve and you’ll have the answers to these questions. I don’t have space for all the details here, but read Ed Griffin’s book and visit http://www.realityzone.com if you really want to know what’s behind a lot of this.

Codex harmonization, data sharing and more
So what does this global food safety plan actually entail? It’s all spelled out right in the language of the law. You can view this yourself on page 195 of the bill text in the PDF file at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-…

(c) Plan – The plan developed under subsection (a) shall include, as appropriate, the following:

• “Provisions for secure electronic data sharing.”

This is so that the FDA can electronically track and monitor the food production activities of foreign nations. That way, if somebody in Spain tries to sell raw almonds to the USA, the FDA can make sure those almonds get irradiated or fumigated with chemicals first. Because raw almonds are so dangerous they have actually been outlawed in America (http://www.naturalnews.com/021776.html).

• “Training of foreign governments and food producers on United States requirements for safe food.”

This is designed to shove the FDA’s “dead food” agenda down the throats of other nations. The FDA, you see, believes that the only safe food is dead food — that’s why, along with the USDA, they have declared war on raw milk, raw almonds and many raw vegetables (http://www.naturalnews.com/023015_f…).

Now, with this law, the FDA will begin pushing its dead foods agenda globally, essentially exporting the FDA’s agenda of death and disease by making sure other nations destroy the nutritive qualities of their food supply in the same way the U.S. is doing. It’s all great for the global Big Pharma profiteers, of course. The more disease they can spread around the world, the more money they’ll make from selling medications.

Codex Alimentarius is also promoted in the bill
The “Plan” described in this bill continues with the following:

• “Recommendations on whether and how to harmonize requirements under the Codex Alimentarius.”

This is included so that the FDA will “harmonize” the U.S. food and dietary supplement industries with global Codex requirements which outlaw virtually all healthy doses of vitamins and minerals. Under full Codex “harmonization,” America will be left with a dead food supply and the health food stores will be virtually stripped bare of dietary supplements. Selling vitamin D at a reasonable dose such as 4,000 IU per capsule will be criminalized and products will be seized and destroyed by FDA agents who recruit local law enforcement to bring in the firepower.

All this will, of course, ensure a diseased, nutritionally-deficient U.S. population. This actually seems to be the goal the FDA has been trying to achieve all along because the more diseased the population, the more money gets collected by Big Pharma for “treating” sick people with medication and chemotherapy.

It’s all right in the bill!
The text mentioned in this article is taken straight from the bill itself. You can search for it at http://thomas.loc.gov by searching for “S.510″ as the bill number.

It makes me wonder why some food book authors so wholeheartedly supported this bill. Why were so many progressives on the left so enamored with this law? Didn’t they realize this was a huge FDA power expansion that would destroy many small farms and put farmers out of business while subjecting the USA to possible Codex harmonization?

Did they even know the FDA is now on a global food-killing agenda that will seek to pasteurize, fumigate, cook or kill virtually every piece of food that enters the United States?

Did they not know that the bill does absolutely nothing to limit the use of chemical pesticides on imported food? According to the FDA’s stance on all this, foods laced with DDT and other pesticides are perfectly “safe” for human consumption, but foods teeming with probiotics — such as raw milk — are deadly and dangerous! (Seriously…)

How is it that popular food book authors and food documentary producers could possibly support this bill? Do they also think small dairy farmers who sell raw milk should be criminalized? Do they agree with the Codex harmonization agenda? Do they think the FDA should run the world’s food safety systems and that the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Treasury should be shaping our global food safety agenda?

You really just have to shake your head and wonder about the true intentions of some people. I just have to ask: Were the supporters of this bill really so naive that they could somehow believe the FDA would actually seek to protect small, local organic farms? What about raw milk producers? What about the single-family farms that must now apply to the FDA for exemption status by authoring research reports, collecting tax returns and producing a pile of documentation the FDA will soon require?

Let me just say it bluntly: The Food Safety Modernization Act is the destroyer of local organic farming. It will gut small farms and local farms, greatly increasing the price of local organic food while decreasing America’s food security. Farmers’ Markets will be targeted by FDA agents who raid the operations of local farmers and imprison them for not having the right paperwork. Families will be destroyed, and those who have been successful at local food production will scale back their operations in a desperate effort to duck under the $500,000 / year rule (which can easily be surpassed by producing just ten acres of organic carrots, by the way).

The real agenda behind the bill
From another point of view, however, this bill is doing exactly what it was supposed to do: Destroy small farms, wipe out family farm operations, imprison raw milk producers and centralize food production in the hands of the big corporate food producers whose operations are steeped in pesticides and soil degradation.

This bill should have been called the “Big Agriculture Monopoly Act” because that’s what it does. It will ensure that America’s food supply will be controlled by Monsanto, DuPont and other agricultural giants who have been at odds with small organic farms for years.

The global food control agenda is a conspiracy, not a theory
It’s all part of the global food control agenda that we now know to be 100% true based on the leaked Wikileaks cables which revealed that the U.S. government conspired to push GMOs into Europe and “create a retaliatory target list” for any nation that resisted GMOs (such as France). Read that full report right here on NaturalNews: http://www.naturalnews.com/030828_GMOs_Wikileaks.html

Thanks to Wikileaks, we now know that the global GMO conspiracy is quite real. It’s something that U.S. diplomats and government officials scheme on in order to appease their corporate masters in the agriculture industry. Now, with the Food Safety Modernization Act, this global conspiracy extends beyond GMOs and encompasses the global food supply, too.

It has become clear that U.S. lawmakers and bureaucrats will not stop until they have killed the entire global food supply, rendering living foods, raw foods and dietary supplements illegal or impossibly difficult to grow. You can thank your U.S. Congresspeople and Senators for all this, of course. In the end, every Senator in office today caved in and voted to pass this bill. You can also thank those who publicly promoted this bill even while having no real idea of the horrors they were supporting.
