Nutrition to 'Cure Aids' - Health Supreme NewsGrabs 27 March 2011
You probably remember how, for some time, South Africa was resisting the distribution of the highly toxic antiretroviral treatment for Aids patients also called HAART. That was when South African president Thabo Mbeki had looked into the background of the Aids epidemic that the 'experts' said was about to devastate Africa and found the science wanting. Mbeki had hosted a conference where - God forbid - scientists were allowed to question medical orthodoxy, but in the end, the pharma-inspired experts prevailed. Mbeki had to go, and HAART is now being delivered to the poor. Mind you, they do not get clean water or proper nutritional support, but they do get the medication. Big Pharma won.
The then South African health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang was attacked and ridiculed for advocating "lemon, garlic and olive-oil" and her recommendation was "given a firm thumbs-down by the South African Medical Journal" ...
While mental health experts warn about depression as a global epidemic, other researchers are discovering ways we trigger our natural production of happy chemicals that keep depression at bay, with surprising results. All you need to do is get your fingers dirty and harvest your own food.
In recent years I’ve come across two completely independent bits of research that identified key environmental triggers for two important chemicals that boost our immune system and keep us happy - serotonin and dopamine. What fascinated me as a permaculturist and gardener were that the environmental triggers happen in the garden when you handle the soil and harvest your crops.
The protection of our health is the most important human right. Over the past century, our health has come under the increasing influence of an investment industry that thrives from the continuation and expansion of diseases as markets for patented drugs. The efforts by pharmaceutical corporations to monopolize human health on a global level have become the greatest obstacle to the prevention, and ultimately the eradication, of today’s most common diseases.
Any business model that is based on the deliberate expansion of diseases violates the fundamental human right to health and must be prohibited worldwide. This will pave the way for mankind to largely eliminate heart disease, cancer and many other diseases within this century.
The compound, known as MnTE-2-PyP, is a form of metalloporphyrin antioxidant that is a more effective version of a naturally occurring antioxidant in the body known as superoxide dismutase. It is thousands of times more potent than antioxidants that are currently available in the United States.
MnTE-2-PyP (Mn (III) tetrakis (N- ethylpyridinium-2-yl) porphyrin) is being developed as a protective agent against acute radiation exposure.
Hugh Harris and colleagues note that although the Nutritional Prevention of Cancer clinical trial showed that selenium reduced the risk of cancer, a later study called the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial did not show a benefit. A major difference between the trials was the form of selenium that was used. To find out whether different types of selenium have different chemopreventive properties, the researchers studied how two forms—SeMet (selenomethionine) and MeSeCys (Se-methylselenocysteine)—are processed in human lung cancer cells.
"The women in the study didn't replace what was in their diet with safflower oil. They added it to what they were already doing. And that says to me that certain people need a little more of this type of good fat – particularly when they're obese women who already have diabetes," said Martha Belury, professor of human nutrition at Ohio State University and lead author of the study.
"I believe these findings suggest that people consciously make sure they get a serving of healthy oil in their diets each day– maybe an oil and vinegar dressing on a salad, or some oil for cooking. And this recommendation can be extended to everyone."
The vitamin A metabolite retinoic acid (RA), along with one of its receptors RAR has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Specifically, RA has been shown to induce production of regulatory T cells that help dampen the immune response to self and foreign antigen, including the bacteria that are normally present in the gastrointestinal tract. However, vitamin A insufficiency is associated with increased mortality to common gastrointestinal and lung infections and poor responses to vaccines, and there is evidence that in addition to its regulatory role, RA may help to stimulate the pro-inflammatory immune response to overcome infection.
When he discovered that Monsanto had schemed with India's Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) and the Indian Council for Agriculture Research (ICAR) to plant genetically-modified (GM) corn without official approval, Kumar was outraged. Kumar had previously written a letter to Ramesh reinforcing his opposition to the GM corn, and shortly thereafter Ramesh asked GEAC to block Monsanto's corn plantings that it had first approved back in December.
Most GM crops commercialized so far are destined for animal feed, not for food, and none have been introduced to address hunger and poverty issues. GM crops in developing countries have been grown mainly as export cash crops, sometimes at the expense of local food production.
MEPs Corinne Lepage and Antonyia Parvanova demand:
*that the toxicology data on the Admissible Daily Intake (ADI) be communicated to the scientific community and that the data be recalculated based on studies that are independent from the manufacturers, and guided according to the Good Laboratory Practice;
*that the EFSA take position on the new studies which tend to show the toxicity of aspartame, and that they do so quickly, in a contradictory manner, and carefully avoiding all conflict of interests.
* that in applying the principle of precaution, which is a principle of Community Law, public information be available on the uncertainties concerning health implications, and that pregnant women be informed about the potential danger to the foetus.
To prevent absorption of environmental iodine, stock up and take kelp or potassium iodide tablets, or eat some seaweed each day.
To prevent absorption of environmental strontium and cesium, eat some seaweed each day and take calcium supplements.
To prevent absorption of plutonium and other radioactive heavy metals, use a heavy metal chelator (such as MSM) and an absorbent (such as chlorella).
Traditional remedies are widely used especially in areas of poverty or where there is no access to medical treatment. The combination of artemisinin, flavonoids, and other compounds which occur naturally in the leaves of Artemisia annua, increases the effectiveness of the treatment and decreases metabolism of the active ingredient. Curcumin (from turmeric) has anti-malarial properties and is being tested for use against cerebral malaria. Adding piperine (from black pepper seeds) to curcumin increases the effectiveness of curcumin 2000 times. Plant extracts such as lemon eucalyptus, citronella, and neem oil also have use as insect repellents...
A drug which the FDA approved more than half a century ago—which doctors have been prescribing for their patients with high-risk pregnancies through compounding pharmacies with great success—was designated by the FDA an “orphan drug.” Now KV Pharmaceutical has been given the exclusive right of production and sale (not to mention drug trial tax breaks!). They immediately raised the price from $10 per dose to $1,500—simply because they could...
You can expect Actos to be pushed on people defined as prediabetic before long. It sounds so easy! Don't worry about exercising. Keep eating a diet of garbage food. Just take a pill and you won't get diabetes. Except, of course, that's not the real story. The real story is that you'll have only a 1 in 5 chance of avoiding diabetes for about 2½ years, and if you're one of that 20%, then you'll have to continue taking the drug.
While taking the drug, you'll be at risk of liver damage and heart failure. There's a good chance that you'll suffer from edema, weight gain, headaches, muscle pains, tooth problems, respiratory tract infections, and smaller but very real chances of fractures and vision damage.
Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the newest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), it certainly is. The manual identifies a new mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.
Acts of violence towards others are a genuine and serious adverse drug event associated with a relatively small group of drugs. Varenicline, which increases the availability of dopamine, and antidepressants with serotonergic effects were the most strongly and consistently implicated drugs. Prospective studies to evaluate systematically this side effect are needed to establish the incidence, confirm differences among drugs and identify additional common features.
The madness of “herd immunity”, the assumption that by vaccinating (infecting) everyone the herd will somehow maintain overall protection against life threatening diseases & viruses. This inverted logic serves only one agenda, that of a sustained Eugenics directive throughout the Third World. Since the introduction of this program Polio numbers have exploded in these isolated communities. The locals know full well it is Malaria (coupled with crippling poverty, a lack of proper sanitation & nutrition), NOT Polio which presents a genuine threat to their communities.
The only solution – a radical upgrade of sanitation, hygiene & nutritional standards throughout these communities; not more mass vaccinations programs which spread otherwise dormant diseases to poor remote regions. You’ll never see the UN funding that type of a project in any Third World Nation. It would actually save lives & put them on a road to real long-term independence.
Experts worry that children's brains, encased in a thinner skull, may be more vulnerable to the effects of the radiation emitted by the phones.
Dr. Nora Volkow, the lead author of the JAMA study, said modeling studies have shown that a child's brain would absorb more radiation than those of adults.
The fact is that by concentrating the sun's rays, great quantities of high grade thermal energy can be obtained, sufficient to run the industrial machines needed to uphold present levels of civilization. We can produce steel and aluminium with the electricity a concentrated solar thermal plant supplies. The steam turbines and generators that are today being run by coal and gas or by nuclear can just as well be driven by ... the sun's rays.
