suffering from anxiety and depression may be more at risk of dying from cancer

Anxiety and depression may raise risk of dying from cancer, research suggests

Adults struggling with anxiety or low moods see their risk of being killed by a tumor rose by 32 per cent, a study found. And for some cancers the chances of death soar by 286 per cent.Those who are most distressed are at greater risk of cancer of the bowel, prostate, pancreas and esophagus and of leukemia. Experts from University College London followed more than 160,000 men and women who were initially free from cancer.By the end of the decade-long study, published in the British Medical Journal, 4,353 went on to die from the disease.After examining levels of psychological distress – such as anxiety or depression – they found it had a significant impact.

Those with the greatest levels of unhappiness were more likely to be killed by cancer. Dr David Batty, of UCL, said: “The results show that compared with people in the least distressed group, death rates in the most distressed group were consistently higher for cancer of the bowel, prostate, pancreas and esophagus and for leukemia.”The data shows the most depressed saw their risk of bowel cancer rise 84 per cent, prostate 142 per cent, pancreas 176 per cent, throat by 159 per cent and leukemia by 286 per cent. Researchers said the study did not definitely prove distress increased the chances of cancer death.

Instead, the researchers said it may mean diagnosed cancers could cause the depression.But further analysis of the data, excluding those who died in the first five years of the study, found the link between distress and cancer death remained. Dr Batty added: “Our findings contribute to the evidence that poor mental health might have some predictive capacity for certain physical diseases but we are a long way off from knowing if these relationships are truly causal.”

More than 330,000 Brits are diagnosed with cancer each year, with around 160,000 dying. Professor Peter Johnson, from Cancer Research UK, said: “This interesting study suggests a link between a person’s mental health and their risk of dying from cancer.“But we need more research to see if this is really the case, or if anxiety and depression are linked to known cancer risks such as smoking, overweight and high alcohol intake.“Better mental health may be another way in which we can reduce our risk of developing cancer, and this deserves serious attention.”

How’s Your Foot Health?

 

Over the past few years, consumers have become much more conscious about their own health and well being. Many have taken steps to workout and exercise, so they can keep their heart in optimum condition. Despite the shift towards a healthier lifestyle, some aspects of the human body are still frequently ignored. This is where foot health enters the picture. Most people completely ignore their feet, until they develop blisters or begin to hurt intensely. Below, you will learn more about the importance of foot health.

A Variety of Related Problems

When it comes down to it, a lot of consumers are simply unaware of the complex nature of their feet. Surprisingly, human feet contain more than fifty bones, which equate to ¼ of the entire bones in the human body. At the same time, the feet include over two-hundred muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Truly, the feet are enormously complex and the problems they can face are also very complicated. With so many muscles and bones in the feet, it is often difficult to pinpoint the exact source of the problem.

Some problems are fairly minor. They include athlete’s feet and sprains. Others are much riskier. Those that fall into the riskier category include neuromas and plantar fasciitis. Most people are completely unaware of these problems and most will ignore their foot pain, until it reaches maximum severity and lingers for a substantial duration.

Often Ignored, But Widespread

While the importance of foot care is truly enormous, many consumers will complete ignore the problem. This is the case, because foot pain often remains at the foot and doesn’t impact any other portions of the body. Nonetheless, this is very risky. While the pain may never venture to other portions of the body, the pain you suffer could very well reduce your quality of life. If the foot pain becomes so intense that you stop exercising, this may eventually lead to a sedentary lifestyle. And unfortunately, a sedentary lifestyle can lead to even more complex problems, such as heart disease and high blood pressure.

If you experience foot pain for a long duration and it alters your traditional lifestyle, you should take action immediately. Treat the problem at its source, before it begins to take a toll on your physical and mental health.

The Most Common Foot Problems

Truly, there is an abundance of problems that can plague the foot. One of the most common is athlete’s foot. This specific condition is generally caused by fungus and bacteria. The feet are often trapped in a dark and damp environment for many hours on end. This can promote the growth of bacteria and could result in infections. Most people will suffer from blisters or itching at some point or another. In most cases, the condition will be minor and will disappear with time. Nonetheless, it is possible for the severity to increase and the infection may become chronic and much more difficult to rectify.

Bunions are also a very common problem that patients will face. These blemishes generally develop when the toe joints become tender and swollen. The best treatment for bunions truly depends on the severity of the problem. If the bunion is minor, wearing the right shoes may help. Alternatively, it might be essential to inject drugs into the impacted area. And of course, some patients will be forced to undergo surgery to have the bunion removed. Other common foot problems include spurs, ingrown toenails, and hammertoe. Familiarizing yourself with these conditions and being prepared to take appropriate action is vital to maintaining optimum foot health.

Avoiding Foot Problems

There are several issues, which can lead to serious foot problems. Wearing the inappropriate shoes can prove to be very detrimental and could result in blisters and bunions. Make sure you get the perfect size shoe, so you can reduce the risk of complications. While you’re at it, you need to remember that utilizing foot massagers and washing the feet frequently can help. This combination will work out the kinks in the foot’s muscles, while also decreasing the likelihood of bacteria growth.

Finally, you should remember that obesity can place a larger amount of stress and strain on the feet. In order to avoid more complicated problems, you should do your best to maintain a healthy weight!

Breathalyser can detect 17 diseases

As far back as 400 BC, Hippocrates advised his students to smell their patients’ breath to detect if they were ill.Now, researchers in America have invented a system which does just that, only rather more scientifically.  A new analyzer uses nano-rays to determine the precise chemical composition of a person’s breath.From that it is able to detect the “signature” of any of 17 serious diseases, from kidney cancer to Parkinson’s disease.Exhaled breath contains nitrogen, carbon dioxide and oxygen, as well as small amounts of more than 100 other chemicals, but the relative amount of each substance varies depending on a person’s state of health.Writing in the journal ACS Nano, scientists describe how they analysed the results with artificial intelligence techniques to classify and diagnose the conditions.They found that each disease produces a unique volatile chemical breath print, based on differing amounts of 13 components.They also showed that the presence of one disease would not prevent the detection of others.The technology allows for an inexpensive and portable breathalyzer-style device, which costs as little as £24 and is able to screen for various diseases in a non-invasive way.Lead author Professor Hossam Haick, said: “We found that just as we each have a unique fingerprint, each of the diseases we studied has an unique breath print, a ‘signature’ of chemical components.”We have a device which can discriminate between them, which is elegant and affordable.”In recent years, scientists have developed experimental breath analyzers, but most of these instruments focus on a single type of disease, such as cancer.

Doctors Say NUTS Should Be Prescribed To Help Beat Killer Diseases

Just a 1oz portion is enough to slash the risk of heart disease, cancer and even obesity. Analysis suggests even a small daily serving cuts the risk of coronary heart disease by 30 per cent, cancer by 15 per cent and premature death by 22 per cent. It can also halve the risk of respiratory disease and reduces diabetes by nearly 40 per cent. Nuts are thought to possess such health-boosting properties some experts think they should be widely prescribed on the NHS. Study co-author Finnegan Aune, of the School of Public Health at Imperial College, London, said: “We found a consistent reduction in risk across many different diseases, which is a strong indication there is a real underlying relationship between nut consumption and different health outcomes. “It’s quite a substantial effect for such a small amount of food.Nuts are considered a super food because they posses anti-inflammatory qualities and are also high in protein and fiber. Researchers analysed 29 global studies involving 819,000 people, including 12,000 cases of coronary heart disease, 9,000 cases of stroke, 18,000 cases of cardiovascular disease and cancer and 85,000 deaths, to assess the link between nuts and improved health. In research published in the journal BMC Medicine today experts from Imperial and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology found eating them was associated with a reduction in disease risk. Mr Aune said: “In nutritional studies so far much of the research has been on the big killers such as heart disease, stroke and cancer, but now we’re starting to see data for other diseases.

Why Are There So Many Cancers?

This is an “anthology” of sorts about the etiology of the current cancer epidemic-pandemic. Please feel free to respond to this article with your opinion so that we can better develope a idea of how our content is being recieved and percieved by our audience.

C-A-N-C-E-R is the word that strikes horror in the hearts and minds of every human alive.  However, that always was not the case.  I’m old enough to remember when cancer was a rather ‘rare’ disease or condition.  Furthermore, I know medical doctors a little older than my ‘vintage’ who say that when they were in medical school, they were not taught very much about cancer, so much so, that when a cancer patient was in one of the wards in a teaching hospital, the entire class of physicians-in-training was trotted in to see that patient.  How interesting?

Personally, I’m of the belief that there is not very much new under the sun EXCEPT what’s being designed and created by genetic modification and geoengineering.  Cancer, undoubtedly, has been around in some form probably since very ancient times.  However, the current ‘plague of cancers’, even though not an anomaly since just about everyone and his or her brother has or had it, became ‘profitable’ during the latter half of the twentieth century.

There is no doubt that cancer, as an ‘industry’, will become even more problematic—plus profitable—to the point where every person probably will contract cancer in some form or other, almost as if by some ulterior design.  Why do I say that?  Because of how cancer has been made into a “profitable business,” revenue stream and profit center for varied and numerous vested interests, when there actually are cancer cures controlling vested interests suppress or even keep for themselves.  Is that too harsh to hear?  Well, have you recently looked into or checked out the ridiculously-priced costs of cancer treatments and protocols?  Like all wars, the “war on cancer” is profitable for vested interests.

For starters, the average cost of a new cancer drug is over $100,000 per year.

Newly-approved cancer drugs can cost about $10,000 on average per month, while some can top off at around, or over, $30,000 a month.

Contrast those prices with the cost of cancer drugs a decade or so ago, which were a mere ‘smidgen’ of only $4,500 a month.  Talk about inflation, or is it medical-pharma rip-off time?  Owning a ‘cancer insurance’ policy really doesn’t help defray many of those costs either.  Usually a cancer policy will state that it provides a lump sum payment for “a covered cancer” or a recurrence of cancer.   Some policies will provide a lump sum cash payout of X dollars upon diagnosis and that’s it!

This website  gives the “average” medical costs for various types of cancers.

What do you think is the average salary an oncologist pulls in? That salary can range from approximately $294,000 to $383,000 per year.  However, how do doctors feel about taking chemotherapy for themselves? When polled, the results showed “75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves.”  Isn’t that interesting?

In this article, “If Chemotherapy Fails 97% Of The Time, Why Do Doctors Recommend It?” you may begin to understand that doctors don’t learn to cure anything!  “They learn about chemicalintervention or surgery to suppress symptoms. They don’t go for the root cause.” (That would put them out of business!)

So how did allopathic medicine and humans become ‘partners’ in cancer?

The first documented case of cancer comes from ancient Egypt. According to the American Cancer Society, there are eight documented cases of breast cancer found on papyrus dating all the way back to 3000 B.C. Even the term cancer has been around for centuries— Hippocrates, the Greek physician who is widely considered the Father of Medicine, used the words carcinos and carcinoma to describe tumors.

Incidentally, there is no mention of cancer per se, even though other diseases are mentioned, in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.  However, individual interpretations, though, may lead some to conclude differently.

Cancer as a rarity in ancient times is not disputed, although some fossilized bone tumors have been found in ancient human mummies.  The dreaded disease of antiquity was leprosy or what’s known in modern times as Hansen’s disease.

During the Renaissance in Europe, a better understanding of the human body began to develop and that led to more diagnostics, especially once post mortem operations (autopsies) became more of a routine procedure after death.  The Renaissance’s Michelangelo, sculptor of “David,” was known to perform detailed anatomical dissections of “fresh cadavers,” which obviously led to his ability to ‘create’ a marble man of extreme anatomical elegance.  Additionally, the invention of the microscope moved pathogenesis along to a great degree of sophisticated knowledge regarding diseased tissues.

It wasn’t until the 1900s that the ‘modern’ or current understanding about cancer and things called “carcinogens” began to appear in science and medicine.   Coincidentally, or more accurately I say, parallel tracks relating to certain diseases began to manifest too.  Those parallels encompassed man-made chemicals and cancer demographics!  Currently the ‘buzz words’ also include epigenetics.

What went wrong

Some of the most egregious assaults upon the human organism that contribute to cancers are the inordinate use and amounts of toxic chemicals placed into food and water—deliberately!  Food growing, processing, preserving, coloring and taste enhancement-chemicals do not belong in food—period!  They adulterate food and our bodies causing biochemical and nutritional imbalances, including genotoxic DNA problems that program cancers.  Neither do most of the man-made chemicals used in water treatment facilities belong in water—the second-most vital element, besides air, for maintaining life.

In my July 2016 book, Eat to Beat Disease, Foods Medicinal Qualities, I devote the Introduction to chronicling how agriculture and the food chain have been polluted chemically, basically since the Industrial Revolution, and especially since World War II when USA businesses and industries went haywire manufacturing, advertising and selling chemicals and pharmaceuticals as ‘needed elements to make life better’—“Better living through chemistry!”  Unfortunately, consumers bought into and ‘embraced’ all the ‘kill’ chemicals for eliminating bugs, vermin, crab grass, weeds, etc.  How hoodwinked were we not to realize that anything that can kill one life form, can and will do irreparable or long-term damage to other life forms higher up the food chain?  Those “can’t do without” lawn chemicals now pollute our drinking water!

In my professional opinion as a retired healthcare professional and consumer health researcher/journalist and author, I feel toxic chemicals that have impacted the human central nervoussystem (the blood brain barrier being breached, in particular) plus the human immune system quite dramatically are what I’d classify as deliberately deceptive money-making enterprises. In my opinion, one is fluoridation of the water supply and the other is vaccines with all their neurotoxic ingredients.

Fluoride is a protoplasmic poison , which can be involved in the etiology of cancers of the bone (osteosarcoma) and oral cancers.  Fluoride causes genetic damage; 19 major university studies have proven that!  I’ll talk about vaccine chemicals later on.

Furthermore and sticking with toxically-polluted water, underground water aquifers are being poisoned by chemicals used in fracking for the extraction of gas and oil found in shale deposits.  According to the researchers who wrote the paper “Natural Gas Operations from a Public Health Perspective,” there are “71 nasty drilling and fracturing chemicals that result in 10 or more health effects,”which can be found here.

But, I’m getting ahead of myself on the timeline of the cancer epidemic-pandemic.

Radiation and Radioactive particulates

Ever since the Manhattan Project to build and test nuclear weapons began (circa 1942), the human race has been subjected to unnatural levels of ionizing radiation circling the globe and impregnating air, food and water.  Thyroid cancers are a prime indication of that type of exposure.  The Manhattan Project resulted in the detonation of two atomic bombs dropped by the USA in 1945 (Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan), which created radiation and radionuclides that affected everything on earth, including cow’s milk and the children who drank the milk!

What type of damage does nuclear radiation do to the body?

Three types of radiation damage may occur: bodily damage (mainly leukemia and cancers of the thyroid, lung, breast, bone, and gastrointestinal tract); genetic damage (birth defects and constitutional and degenerative diseases due to gonodal damage suffered by parents); and development and growth damage (primarily growth and mental retardation of unborn infants and young children).

Probably the most serious threat is cesium-137, a gamma emitter with a half-life of 30 years. It is a major source of radiation in nuclear fallout, and since it parallels potassium chemistry, it is readily taken into the blood of animals and men and may be incorporated into tissue. Other hazards are strontium-90, an electron emitter with a half-life of 28 years, and iodine-131 with a half-life of only 8 days. Strontium-90 follows calcium chemistry, so that it is readily incorporated into the bones and teeth, particularly of young children who have received milk from cows consuming contaminated forage. Iodine-131 is a similar threat to infants and children because of its concentration in the thyroid gland. In addition, there is plutonium-239, frequently used in nuclear explosives. A bone-seeker like strontium-90, it may also become lodged in the lungs, where its intense local radiation can cause cancer or other damage.

Plutonium-239 decays through emission of an alpha particle (helium nucleus) and has a half-life of 24,000 years. To the extent that hydrogen fusion contributes to the explosive force of a weapon, two other radionuclides will be released: tritium (hydrogen-3), an electron emitter with a half-life of 12 years, and carbon-14, an electron emitter with a half-life of 5,730 years. Both are taken up through the food cycle and readily incorporated in organic matter.

Shouldn’t we be asking what’s happening to our air, food and water since Chernobyl (1986) and especially since Fukushima (2011) with its uncontained radioactive leaks into the Pacific Ocean and the atmosphere which global nuclear powers seemingly aren’t willing to help clean up?  Are food crops growing in USA’s western states of Washington, Oregon and California affected—including organically-grown crops?

How about all the atmospheric nuclear testing done by various “nuclear countries” [10 or 11] that have stockpiled nuclear weapons?  What have they put into the atmosphere?  Then there are the depleted uranium ordnances used by the USA in fighting the Gulf War, in Iraq, and possibly Syria.  Children born in Iraq after that outrageous war based upon the false pretense of “weapons of mass destruction that were not there, but the USA obviously has” are suffering the consequences of ionizing radiation and genotoxic chemicals, as told in this video.

Let’s not overlook all the ‘minor’ nuclear power plant ‘uneventful’ leaks and shutdowns because of some sort of technology failures, the foremost being the Three Mile Island ‘accident’ outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, March 28, 1979.  Also, do you know that all nuclear power plants are permitted to emit regularly ‘safe’ levels of radioactivity up their stacks [9]?

Weather Geoengineering “Chemtrails”

Let’s not forget the ever-persistent Solar Radiation Management effort to control the weather—pardon my misspeak—to prevent “climate warming”—using toxic chemical sprays that cloud over the skies and produce toxic rain and snow, which pollute everything on earth, including the food we eat and the water we drink, not to mention contaminating our lungs with nanoparticles probably engineered to tag and ‘track’ us or fashion us into radiofrequency ‘radio signal receivers’.  Isn’t the U.S. Air Force gearing up to own the weather as a weapon of war by 2025? [10]

Some of the toxins found in the assays of chemtrail-spiked rain water assayed in California  include:

  • Aluminum
  • Arsenic
  • Barium salts
  • Cadmium
  • Desiccated human blood cells
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Mycoplasma
  • Polymer fibers
  • Radio cesium
  • Strontium
  • Uranium
  • Plus others

Add to the above as a ‘contraindication’, another ‘parallel’ of sorts, which involves chemtrails apparently contributing to a newly-occurring terrible health syndrome that presents as a crawling sensation under the skin with nanofibers emerging; it’s called Morgellons disease [7-8].

Genetically Modified Organisms: Food, Animals, Plants and Organisms

The high tech world of genetic engineering or modification is so overwhelmingly large, I cannot begin to touch on it in this article which, if I did, could wind up being the size of a book, so I will focus on only genetically modified ‘phood’, which I cover in great detail in my July 2016 book, Eat to Beat Disease, Foods Medicinal Qualities.

What I touch on next is minuscule in comparison to the known and published research, science and literature, so I may be criticized for not mentioning problems that some readers think I should have included but, inadvertently, have omitted.  I apologize for that, but I’ve got to make tracks the best I can in tying this article in to the cancer epidemic-pandemic.

Notably since the 1980s (and even earlier) there have been full-bore scientific determinations to design and recreate Nature and most, if not all, of Nature’s attributes into the scientific power-dream of domination, control, skewing and modifying DNA/RNA in just about everything that most humans refer to as “Intelligent Design”-created or  God’s creation.  Genetic modification (GM/GMO/GE) affects just about every facet of most life forms on Planet Earth NOW!

The GMO ‘track’ that has the better potential and most immediately-effective strategy for refashioning human DNA/RNA besides vaccines, in my opinion, is GMO ‘phood’!  That being said, I’d like to refer readers to another of my books, Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA, A Probe Into What’s Probably Making Us Sick, wherein I discuss in greater depth GMOs.  As a matter of fact, while I was writing that book, I was in email contact with Professor Séralini, PhD, whose subsequent 2 year rat studies on GMO feed has become a landmark study about cancerous tumors from GMO rations and glyphosate.

Dr Séralini’s work  puts to rest, and absolutely trashes, Monsanto’s 90-day GMO-‘safety’-studies presented to the FDA for GMO technology approvals [12-13]!
That being said, Monsanto’s GMO crops and the Monsanto GMO agricultural methods for growing those crops – the use of inordinate amounts of glyphosate in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup® by contract farming or there are legal problems for farmers – leave the planet, its livestock, almost all plant matter, soils/farms, pollinator insects and, especially, humans, who eat GMO ‘phoods’ in dire straits.  Gastrointestinal health problems affecting the human microbiome from glyphosate residues found in most processed food is being documented [16].  Children, who are vaccine damaged, get gastrointestinal relief and find a way to wellness when put on a GMO-free diet .

Not only in food is glyphosate found, but in vaccines injected into infants, toddlers, teens, adults and senior citizens!

I’d like to thank Chris, who made a comment to my article above and which I want to share, since Chris seems to know more about glyphosate’s interesting ‘past’:

Glyphosate=N-phosphonomethylGLYCINE, contains the amino acid glycine, which also happens to be the human inhibiting neurotransmitter!! Dr. Samsel and Seneff published all the relevant data on that issue, which somehow is not becoming loud enough! Carcinogenicity of glyphosate was known by Monsanto in 1981, and first later the biotech seed producer came to the idea to design new artificial genes, which would bind the carcinogen glyphosate and make ~85% of all GMO’s glyphosate resistant. What goes even further into history, is the fact that glycine supports fast proliferation of certain types of cancer, a fact known in 1932!!! Thus features of the glycine, one of the simplest amino acid on our planet were investigated thoroughly for decades, and once it was known that it participates in cancer growth, glyphosate was ‘discovered’, as the artificial chemical mimick (replacement) of glycine. First it was used as ‘safest’ herbicide, later it became the essence of most GMO’s produced by the biotech ‘seed’ giants. The latest article about glyphosate from Dr. Samsel and Seneff, goes into horrifying theoretical scenario, a production of peptoids, within OUR BODIES! Peptoids are not digestible, but once becoming parts of our bodies, certainly support some artificial unknown function. Not for nothing Dr. Seneff works for the office of ‘artificial intelligence’….

The purpose of Glyphosate was planned not only for decades, but for almost a century by now… Since Glyphosate is deeply connected with almost all GMO’s, the entire biotechnology with its ‘fruits’ HAS TO BE PUT INTO A DEEP INVESTIGATION, A.S.A.P.

Glyphosate’s ‘history’, as stated above, must be investigated immediately by reputable independentscientists, not Monsanto’s or Bayer’s ‘gophers’!  The U.S. CDC, FDA, USDA, EPA and Congress must become involved immediately, if not sooner, and prevent the ‘marriage’ of the Bayer-Monsanto ‘families’ that probably will facilitate cancer even more than ever as a result of the ‘scientific’ clout Bayer will attain as the largest GMO seed producer in the world.

Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Technologies Contribution to Cancer

In this world of ‘smart’ gadgets and appliances, everyone unknowingly has bought into being irradiated with non-ionizing microwave radiofrequency energies that have been declared a class 2B carcinogen by the IARC of the World Health Organization: Lyon, France – May 30, 2011  The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based upon an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer associated with wireless phone use.

What most folks PROBABLY aren’t aware of is that all “smart” appliances operate on microwave technology frequencies and fall into the same class 2B above, just not cell phones which are the primary wireless technology in use.  However, others equally as dangerous, if not more so, include:

Wi-Fi in schools, offices and public places; utilities’ AMI Smart Meters; and any device that can send and receive data, voice, photos, messages, etc. using microwave technology! Currently, there’s talk about Google’s 5G “Wi-Fi in the Sky” Project SkyBender [15]. God help us when that goes into effect!  If you ever thought about wearing a tin-foil-hat, then that would be the time to do so.  Why?  In order to protect your brains from being ‘fried’, I offer, from the research that’s been hidden DELIBERATELY by the microwave tech industry for years indicating non-thermal adverse health effects known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity and as a contributing factor to many types of cancers.

Whatever you do, please do not wear a ‘live’ or active cell phone on your body, e.g., on your belt; in your pants pocket; in your bra; or an ear piece that’s not the proper type to prevent RFs from going directly into your ear and brain. All the above probably will pale to what I will discuss next, I offer.Probably a more significant factor for the current cancer epidemic-pandemic is the fact that children in the 1950s through 1963 (or longer, it’s thought) were vaccinated with polio vaccines containing a cancer virus, the SV40 virus.  More than 100 million children received that cancer virus in the polio vaccine!  I discuss that and much more about vaccine ingredients in my book, Vaccination Voodoo, What YOU Don’t Know About Vaccines.

The U.S. Congress held a hearing in 2003 wherein they investigated and had to admit that.  Here’s the report “Preventing Another SV40 Tragedy: Are Today’s Safe Vaccine Protocols Effective?” [No! I offer.] dated November 13, 2003 admitting what happened.  However, here’s what I wrote about that SV40 vaccine problem for VacTruth in 2011.

Nothing speaks more clearly than Dr Maurice Hilleman, the father of modern vaccines who worked for Merck, talking very candidly about those monkeys from whom the SV40 virus was derived.The long and short of the above vaccine tragedy is that apparently there may be some impact on cancer rates since the SV40 virus has been found in cancerous tumors excised from cancer patients! This article discusses the “cause and effect” issues revolving around SV40 and cancer.  One can assume that there is ‘no cause and effect’ just like there is ‘no cause and effect’ with the MMR vaccine and Autism due to the CDC’s blatant fraudulent scientific findings as exposed by whistleblower William Thompson, PhD, and told in the documentary movie VAXXED.

However, that’s not the first time the CDC had fudged and falsified the connection between vaccines and Autism; there’s the Verstraeten study that was reworked circa 2000.  Attorney Robert F Kennedy, Jr disclosed what’s become known as the “Simpsonwood Meeting” that effectuated the rework of  CDC epidemiologist Verstraeten’s confirmed Autism-from-vaccines  research data that somehow morphed into a newly-generated “no cause and effect to autism from vaccines” study.

Then there is the unfortunate problem of Merck and Company falsifying for ten years the effectiveness rate of the mumps active in their MMR vaccine, which whistleblowers exposed and currently is before the Federal court  in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.We can’t trust the CDC, FDA or the vaccine makers when it comes to vaccine science!  The CDC is the vaccine makers’ champion for mandatory vaccinations.  Why, when vaccines contain so many neurotoxins and probable carcinogenic ingredients like formaldehyde, and the CDC/FDA should be protecting healthcare consumers, not Big Pharma?

Is the current cancer epidemic-pandemic a ‘man-made’ problem?

As I said in the beginning of this “anthology,” cancer has been around since ‘forever’, but the current rate of contraction is far beyond what could be termed ‘natural chances’.  Everything, including pharmacology, which I’ve not discussed, is implicated in a “cause and effect” with cancer ideologies, especially anything having to do with “man-made” chemicals, a great quantity of which affects our food, water and the air we breathe.

Is it too late to do anything about the cancer epidemic-pandemic?  What do you think?

Nutrition As Medicine

Most people truly do not understand the concept of nutritional medicine and fewer yet understand the concept of cellular nutrition.  This article will give you a better understanding of how I approach my patients as a specialist in Nutritional Medicine. Hopefully, this will give you a better understanding of how and why you can better protect your health or even regain your health by applying these concepts to your own life.

Concept of Oxidative Stress

Even though oxygen is necessary for life itself, it is inherently dangerous for our existence.  In the process of utilizing oxygen within your cells to create energy, you also create a by-product referred to as free radicals.  Free radicals are charged oxygen molecules that are missing at least one electron and desire to get an electron from the surrounding area.  If it is not readily neutralized by an antioxidant, which has the ability to give this free radical the electron it desires, it can go on to create more volatile free radicals, damage the cell wall, vessel wall, proteins, fats, and even the DNA nucleus of the cell.  So the same process that turns a cut apple brown or rusts metal is causing you to rust inside.  In fact, the medical literature now shows us that over 70 chronic degenerative diseases are the result of this process.  Diseases like coronary artery disease, cancer, diabetes, Parkinson’s, arthritis, macular degeneration, MS, lupus, among others are the result of small oxidative changes that occur over a long period of time.

It is all about Balance

The number of free radicals you produce is not steady.  In other words, some days you produce more than others.  Because of our stressful lifestyles, polluted environment, and over-medicated society, this generation must deal with more free radicals than any previous generation that has ever walked the face of the earth.  If you want to prevent oxidative stress, you need to have more antioxidants available along with their supporting nutrients than the number of free radicals you produce.  You see, we are not defenseless against this process.  Antioxidants are the answer.  The question is whether or not we are able to get all the antioxidants we need from our food.  This was the question I had to answer for myself and the reason that I wrote my book What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know about Nutritional Medicine.   After spending over 2 years reviewing the medical literature, I concluded that the only way you have a chance of preventing oxidative stress is by taking high quality, complete and balanced nutritional supplements that provide, what I refer to as, cellular nutrition.  If you have not read my book or listened to any of my CD’s on this subject, I would certainly encourage you to do just that.  The medical references are detailed in my books and provide the medical evidence that demands a verdict—should you be taking nutritional supplements?

History of Nutritional Medicine

            Over the past half century, nutritional medicine has been practiced with the belief that you had to determine what nutrients in which you were deficient and then supplement that particular nutrient.  It became very obvious to me early on in my research that the underlying problem most of us are facing is not a nutritional deficiency, but instead, the result of oxidative stress.  It was also apparent to me that medication, which actually increases the production of free radicals, would never be the answer to preventing any of these diseases.  Also if this was the case, the goal had to be to provide the nutrients that were necessary to build up our body’s natural antioxidant defense system so that you did not develop oxidative stress.  It became so apparent to me that our bodies, not the drugs I could prescribe, were the best defense against developing any of these diseases.  The problem is NOT a nutritional deficiency.  The problem is oxidative stress.

Modern Nutritional Research

Today’s research is focused on trying to find the magic bullet in regards to a particular disease.  For example, there were many studies that showed that those smokers who had the highest antioxidant levels in their blood stream had a significantly lower risk of developing lung cancer than those smokers who had the lowest level of antioxidants.  Most of the researchers felt that it was primarily due to the high levels of beta carotene.  So they decided to do a study and supplement a large number of smokers with just beta carotene.  They were dismayed when they found that the group that received the beta carotene alone actually had a higher incidence of lung cancer than the control group.  This led researchers and the media to actually claim that beta carotene was dangerous and should not be taken in supplementation in smokers.  A review of the same data reported a couple of years later showed that those smokers who had the highest levels of total antioxidants in their blood stream had a significantly decreased risk of developing lung cancer compared to those who had the lowest levels of antioxidants.

Beta carotene is NOT a drug.  It is merely a nutrient that we get from our food; however, because of supplementation we are now able to get it at levels you cannot obtain from your food.  Beta carotene works in only certain parts of the body and against only certain kinds of free radicals.  Beta carotene needs the other antioxidants along with the antioxidant minerals and B cofactors in order to do its job effectively.  However, researchers are focused on trying to find the magic bullet instead of stepping back and understanding the basic principles and concepts of cellular nutrition.  The amazing thing is how so many of these studies that look at just one or possibly two nutrients actually show a health benefit.  What would the health benefit be if you would put all of these nutrients together at these optimal levels?  Enter in the concept of cellular nutrition.

Concept of Cellular Nutrition

There are over 180 epidemiologic studies (studies that involve a very large number of people) that all show the very same thing.  Those individuals who have the highest levels of total antioxidants in their body compared with those who have the lowest levels have a 2- to 3-fold decrease risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and even Alzheimer’s dementia.  Obviously, those individuals who consume more of the fresh fruits and vegetables, which contain a large amount of these antioxidants, had the highest levels of antioxidants in their body.  This only makes logical sense when you understand the concept of oxidative stress as being the root cause of over 70 of these chronic degenerative diseases.  Therefore, a physician would conclude the best thing that they could advise their patients to do is to be consuming at least 8 to 12 servings of fresh whole fruits and vegetables each and every day.  The second best thing would be to recommend high quality, complete and balanced nutritional supplements that provided cellular nutrition.

Cellular nutrition would be defined as providing ALL of the micronutrients to the cell at these optimal or advanced levels that have been shown to provide a health benefit in our medical literature.  In other words, you would want your supplementation to be balanced and complete, much like a healthy diet is. The only difference is the fact that, unlike today’s food supply, supplementation can provide all of these nutrients at optimal levels.  We all need to be supplementing a healthy diet; however, because of our stressful lifestyles, polluted environment, and over-medicated society we do need to be supplementing.

Cellular nutrition has been shown in our medical literature to build up our body’s natural immune system, antioxidant system, and repair system.  You not only replenish any nutritional deficiency within 6 months of supplementation, but you also optimize all of the body’s micronutrients.  You are given the absolute best chance to reverse or prevent any oxidative stress and protect your health.  You see, nutritional supplementation is really about health—not disease.  Nutritional supplements are natural to the body and the nutrients the body requires to function at its optimal level.

Every man, woman, and child needs to be supplementing a healthy diet and be involved in a modest exercise program.  This is the key to protecting and maintaining your health.  However, what if you have already lost your health and have developed one of these chronic degenerative diseases?  Does supplementation provide any hope?  This is the question that I had to answer for myself and for my patients.  This has been the focus of my practice for the past 11 years and why I have developed my online practice located at www.raystrand.com.

The Concept of Synergy

The medical literature had showed me over and over again that those patients who were already suffering from a chronic degenerative disease like rheumatoid arthritis, MS, or diabetes actually had significantly more oxidative stress than the normal, healthy patient.  Cellular nutrition is generally adequate to help someone who is in excellent health; however, it would not be enough supplementation to bring oxidative stress under control in someone who is already suffering from a major disease.

It became very apparent to me early on that if you were going to be able to have any effect on improving the health of someone who was already suffering from cancer, heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes, macular degeneration, and the like that you would have to truly optimize every aspect of the body’s natural defense systems.  I quickly began to realize that by placing all of my patients on basic cellular nutrition, I was able to create a synergistic effect.  Vitamin E is a great antioxidant within the cell membrane.  Vitamin C is a great antioxidant within the plasma.  Glutathione is the best intracellular antioxidant.  However, all of these antioxidants needed the antioxidant minerals and B cofactors to do their job well.  Also, vitamin C was able to replenish vitamin E so it could be used over and over again.  Alpha lipoic acid, another great antioxidant, was able to regenerate both vitamin E and glutathione.  I found that 1 plus 1 was no longer 2, but instead, 8 or 10. This powerful approach allowed me a much better chance of bringing oxidative stress back under control.

Once my patients were consuming my recommendations of cellular nutrition, I simply began adding enhancers to their nutritional supplement regime.  I began looking for the most potent antioxidants that were available.  Grape seed extract was found to be 50 times more potent than vitamin E and 20 times more potent than vitamin C at handling oxidative stress.  CoQ10 was not only a very important antioxidant but has been found to significantly boost our natural immune system and help provide increased energy for the cell to function at its optimal level.  Other nutrients like glucosamine sulfate, saw palmetto, phytonutrients, additional vitamin E, calcium, magnesium in various illnesses produced amazing results.

Over the past 12 years, I have learned how to best support my patients’ natural defenses and allow them the best chance to take back control of their health.  Again, it is all about balance.  I want my patients who are already suffering from an illness to also bring oxidative stress back under control.  This is my entire goal.  Then and only then do they have a chance to see their health improve.  By combining cellular nutrition with specific enhancers, I give all my patients the best chance of bringing oxidative stress back under control.  The results that I have seen in my medical practice using these principles have been nothing short of amazing and something that I had never witnessed in my first 20 plus years of medical practice.

Now, I want to share a couple of precautions that I have learned along the way.  First, nutritional medicine is not like taking drugs.  It takes a minimum of 6 months to build up the body’s natural defenses and many of my patients did not even begin to see any improvements in their health until after 6 months.  Not everyone responds to my recommendations; however, I feel the majority of my patients have had significant health improvements when they followed these recommendations.  None of my patients were cured of their underlying illness.  Nutritional supplementation is not an alternative or substitute for traditional medical care.  You should never quit taking any medication prescribed by your doctor without his or her consent and direction.  Many of my patients have been able to decrease their dependence of medication and in some cases even discontinue some of their medication.  However, this is always because of a significant positive improvement in their health and under the direction of their personal physician.
