a lesson in how corporations and corporate media really work

Two Now Former Fox Reporters Found Just How Corrupt & Far Reaching Monsanto’s Power Is

By David Noble – End The Lie

I decided to write this article as this story is a perfect example of how Monsanto and the Main Stream Media operate with no regard for our safety or the truth.

Fox News reporters Steve Wilson & Jane Akre uncovered a disturbing piece of information after Fox television told them to cover any story or subject that they wanted and to ask hard questions for a new show called the Investigators.

One of the first story’s that they came up with was that most of the milk in California and in fact most of the country was contaminated with the artificial growth hormone Posilac. This is injected into cows so that they produce more milk and has been proven to be a cancer-causing growth hormone.

Jane stated that

With Monsanto I didn’t realize how effectively a corporation could work to get something on the market place. The levels of coordination that they had to have, they had to get university professors into the fold, they had to get experts into the fold, they had to get reporters into the fold, they had to get the public into the fold and of course the FDA, let’s not leave them out. They had to get the federal regulators convinced that this was a fine and safe product to get it onto the market place and they did that very very well”

Posilac was rubber stamped by the Federal Government before they put it on the market place with the longest test done for toxicity being 90 days on 30 rats. The results of this test were either misreported to the FDA or the FDA was not interested in the safety of Posilac.

Scientists within Health Canada looked very carefully at BGH (bovine growth hormones) and came to a disturbing conclusion that totally contradicts those of the FDA in the US. Their findings showed that Monsanto’s engineered growth hormone did not comply with safety requirements and could be absorbed into the body with serious implications for human health. Mysteriously that conclusion was deleted from the final publication of Monsanto’s report.

Unlike those in the US the Canadian scientists stood up and proclaimed that it was not safe. Dr Shiv Chopra said that

they had been pressured and coerced to pass drugs of questionable safety including the rBST( Posilac). I personally was very concerned that there is a very serious problem of secrecy, conspiracy and other things of that nature, and that something needs to be done”

This put the FDA in a difficult position to come up with an explanation which they failed to do. Despite this Posilac was not pulled off the market.

(The below video documents Steve & Jane’s experiences of this story 10 Mins)

Steve Wilson & Jane Akre wrote the story with Fox even buying ads to promote the show. But on Friday night 3 nights before the show was due to be aired they got a letter from a high priced lawyer in New York hired by Monsanto. Steve explains

It contained a lot of things that were off the wall faults, but if you didn’t know the story and how we had gone about producing it, it would have scared you as a broadcaster or manager”

It was decided to pull the story and check it one more time. Steve continued

The bottom line was that there were no factual errors in that story. Both sides had been heard from and had had an opportunity to speak”

One week later Monsanto sent a second letter which threatened dire consequences for Fox News if the story aired in Florida. Fox under the threat of being sued and losing advertising dollars showed more concerned for making profit from advertisements for Monsanto’s products like, Round-up, NutraSweet, aspartame and other products than informing the public of this serious health concern.

Steve and Jane explained what happened

Steve “so we got into a battle and the first deal was the new general manager”

Jane ”His name is Dave and Dave is a salesman, and you know he would pump your hand and ask how you are doing”

Steve ” He called us upstairs to his office and said, what would you say if I killed this piece, what if it never ran, and we said that we would not be very happy about that and he replied that he could kill it you know. We said that yes you are the manager, you could kill it and it would never air. And he was humming and hawing before finally blurting out asking us if we would tell anybody. I said look I am not going to lie for you.

About a week later he called us back to the office and said I would like you to make these changes, in fact you will make these changes.

We said let us show you the research we have that shows you that the information you want us to broadcast isn’t true.

He replied that he didn’t care about that, I said pardon me to which he replied that’s what I have lawyers for just write it the way the lawyers want it written.

I said you know this is news, this is important; this is stuff people need to know. I will never forget he didn’t pause a beat as he said we just paid three billion dollars for these television stations, we will tell you what the news is, the news is what we says it is”

Steve continued ” I said I am not doing that, to which he told me that if we refused to present this story the way we think it should be presented you will be fired for insubordination. I said that I would go to the Federal communications commission and report that I was fired from my job by you the licensee of these public airwaves because I refuse to lie to people on the air”

About a week later the general manager called them back offering to pay them the rest of their year’s salary if they agreed not to talk about what Monsanto had done, to not talk about the Fox corporate response in suppressing the story or talk about the story and to never talk about BGH.

After the bribe was refused it was decided to rewrite the story in a way that they could all agree upon. But problems soon surfaced after they started rewriting the story with their lawyers.

Jane explains

For example they wanted to do things like take out the word cancer, saying that you don’t have to identify what the potential problem is, just say human health implications. Any criticism of Monsanto or their product, they either removed it or minimized it. And it was very clear with almost every edit that they made to the piece that this was the aim”.

The piece was rewritten an unheard of 83 times in an attempt to convince the reporters to either go with an untrue version or to stall long enough for the first window in their contract so that they could fire them which they then did for no cause.

This prompted Steve to write a letter to Caroline Forrest the Fox Corporate lawyer, stating that they were being fired for refusing to put something on air that they had demonstrated to be false and misleading, also because they had also stood up to Monsanto, The stations editors and lawyers. The lawyer wrote a letter back admitting that they were right and this was the reason that they were let go. This was a big mistake.

This response by the lawyer gave Steve and Jane the whistle blower status that they needed in Florida to file a whistle blower claim against their former employers which Jane did.

On August 18, 2000 after three judges, 27 months of pre-trial wrangling and five weeks of courtroom testimony, Jane was awarded $425,000 in damages for being fired by Fox.

Unfortunately and worryingly her appeal court judges found that falsifying news is not actually against the law, so they denied Jane her whistle blower status and overturned the case, withdrawing her $425,000 award.

So once again Monsanto got away with putting profit before the health of their customers. They have shown repeatedly that they not only have the FDA, politicians and law-courts but also the main media in their pockets. There is no question of their guilt in this case or of the dangers of BGH. But Monsanto’s corrupt reach seems to know no bounds. We cannot rely on anybody but ourselves to keep us safe from the likes of Monsanto. The answer is surprisingly simple, stop supporting them. Buy organic and let those in authority and the Main Stream Media know that we are on to them.

There is a big chance that the milk that you are feeding to your family comes from a cow injected with BGH. Think of how much the risk of getting cancer has grown in recent years and ask yourself if you really want to chance this for yourself and your family. By paying a bit more and buying organic milk you could be saving your family from serious illness.

ALPHA AWAKENING

‘You cannot solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created the problem.’ — Albert Einstein

ALPHA AWAKENING

A one day, six hour gathering for personal transformation and empowerment. Reclaiming your power in a world determined to control it.

Do you have a sense of time speeding up?

Are long held personal and family issues suddenly coming to a head?

Are interpersonal and job relationships suddenly shifting?

Do you no longer feel comfortable in your own skin?

Is there a feeling that something is coming and that the status quo is no longer holding?

Experiencing increased synchronicities and psychic connection?

Are eating, sleep and health patterns changing?

Welcome to The Shift.

For six hours (with numerous breaks) we will share in an intensive and accelerated group experience of ‘letting go’ and coming into our full power as energetic beings. This will not be a group therapy session but a safe and playful experience of transforming the past and personal history — painlessly — into present moment awakening.

We have been led to believe that personal healing and transformation must take years, be painful and difficult and cost thousands of dollars. That is the way the material world works. It is not the way the energetic universe works, where the effortless, unexpected and miraculous are the natural state of affairs. A lifetime of challenging energies can be healed in an instant. We will tap into and explore those universal holographic energies.

The gathering will be divided into three sections: Body; Mind; Spirit.

Energies and intentions we will play with:

Releasing the past and rewriting personal history.

Unplugging — without judgment — from past and present energies, people and relationships that no longer serve us, or them.

Clearing and releasing karma (yes, it is possible to be done with karma completely).

Clearing and balancing each chakra and balancing the physical and energetic bodies.

Learning to use frequencies and colors to instantly transform physical and emotion states.

Playing with mantras and affirmations for personal healing and empowerment.

Strengthening personal, interpersonal and global compassion.

The power of personal belief.

Manifestation.

Opening the sacred heart and sacred mind.

Connecting to the body’s intelligence.

Power breathing.

Basic meditation and relaxation techniques.

Please wear comfortable clothing, bring a blanket and pillow, yoga mat (if you have one, though it is not necessary), notebook, lots of water and several ‘energy bar’ snacks.

Where: Just Cause Entertainment, 4130 Del Rey Avenue, Marina Del Rey, 90292. The studio is off the street behind 4132 Del Rey Avenue. Use either alleyway to enter.

When: Saturday, August 4th, 9:00AM to 3:00PM.

Cost: $30.00 (please no checks or credit cards). Everyone is welcome regardless of ability to pay, we’d love to have you there in any case.

Peace & Awakening,

Bradley

28 uses for hydrogen peroxide

28AmazingBenefits and Uses for

9th July 2012

by Andrea Harper – docakilah.wordpress.com

Hydrogen peroxide is the only germicidal agent composed only of water and oxygen. Like ozone, it kills disease organisms by oxidation! Hydrogen peroxide is considered the worlds safest all natural effective sanitizer. It kills microorganisms by oxidizing them, which can be best described as a controlled burning process. When hydrogen peroxide reacts with organic material it breaks down into oxygen and water.

1. Whiten Clothes – An Alternative to Beach

Add a cup of Peroxide to white clothes in your laundry to whiten them. Peroxide is great to get rid of blood stains on clothes and carpets. If there is blood on clothing, just pour directly on the spot, let it sit for about a minute, then rub and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

2. Health

Your body makes hydrogen peroxide to fight infection which must be present for our immune system to function correctly. White blood cells are known as Leukocytes. A sub-class of Leukocytes called Neutrophils produce hydrogen peroxide as the first line of defense against toxins, parasites, bacteria, viruses and yeast.

3. Rejuvenating Detoxifying Bath

Use about 2 quarts 3% hydrogen peroxide to a tub of warm water. Soak at least 1/2 hour, adding hot water as needed to maintain a comfortable water temperature.

4. Foot Fungus

To cure a foot fungus, simply spray a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.

5. Douche

Add 2 capfuls of 3% hydrogen peroxide in warm distilled water once to twice a week to remove even chronic yeast infections.

6. Colonic or Enema

For a colonic, add 1 cup (8 ozs.) 3% H202 to 5 gallons warm water. (Do not exceed this amount) For an enema, add 1 tablespoon of 3% H202 to a quart of warm distilled water.

7. Infections

Soak any infections or cuts in 3% for five to ten minutes several times a day. Even gangrene that would not heal with any medicine has been healed by soaking in hydrogen peroxide. Put half a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus or other skin infections.

8. Bird Mites Infections

Patients infected by tiny mites report that hydrogen peroxide effectively kills the mites on their skins. They spray it on their skin a couple of times (with a few minutes in between the applications) with amazing results.

9. Sinus Infections

A tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide added to 1 cup of non-chlorinated water can be used as a nasal spray. Depending on the degree of sinus involvement, one will have to adjust the amount of peroxide used.

10. Wound Care

3% H2O2 is used medically for cleaning wounds, removing dead tissue, and as an oral debriding agent. Peroxide stops slow (small vessel) wound bleeding/oozing, as well.

Some sources recommend soaking infections or cuts for five to ten minutes several times a day. However, washing and rinsing action is sufficient. You shouldn’t leave the solution on open tissue for extended periods of time as, like many oxidative antiseptics, hydrogen perioxide causes mild damage to tissue in open wounds. Therefore it is important to use with caution. Personal Care Mouthwash / Tooth Care

Healing Properties: Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. You will not have canker sores and your teeth will be whiter. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% hydrogen peroxide into your mouth and hold it for 10 minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

11. Mouthwash

Many people don’t realize that hydrogen peroxide makes a very effective and inexpensive mouthwash. Use 3% H202 – add a dash of liquid chlorophyll for flavoring if desired.

12. Toothpaste

Use baking soda and add enough 3% H202 to make a paste.

13. Toothbrush

Or, just dip your brush in 3% H202 and brush. Soak your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide to keep them free of germs.

14. Tooth Ache

Hydrogen peroxide is not a pain killer; however, as an anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal agent, it is effective at treating the pathogen that is causing the infection. The following is from my own personal experience: My dentist wanted to give me a root canal some time ago as one tooth was inflamed and, in her opinion, would die. I felt some discomfort but told her that I would give it chance to heal. I rinsed with hydrogen peroxide (several times a day) as well ascoconut oil (once a day). The discomfort went away and I have had no further problems with the tooth.

15. Tooth Whitening

Having used 3% Hydrogen Peroxide as a mouth wash for sometime ago, I am thrilled to note that my teeth have been beautifully and effortlessly whitened. I used to pay so much for professional whitening, those silly strips and uncomfortable trays. Live and learn.

NOTE: Do not swallow any peroxide. When the peroxide rinse is done, be sure to rinse out your mouth with water.

16. Hair Lightening

Peroxide is a bleaching agent and is used for lightened hair. Dilute 3% hydrogen peroxide with water (50 / 50) and spray the solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages, but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, faddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually so it’s not a drastic change.

17. Contact Lenses

Hydrogen peroxide is used as a disinfectant in CIBA Vision’s Clear Care no rub contact lens cleaning solution, due to its ability to break down the proteins that build up on the lense from the eye’s immune response, resulting in increased comfort for those with sensitive eyes.

Sanitizing / Disinfectant /Cleaning 18. Straight or Diluted Hydrogen Perioxide

Clean your counters and table tops with hydrogen peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters. Use hydrogen peroxide to clean glass and mirrors with no smearing.

Keep a spray bottle of 3% (straight) to disinfect the interior of the refrigerator and kids’ school lunch boxes.

19. In the Dishwasher

Add 2 oz. of 3% hydrogen peroxide to your regular washing formula.

Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of 3% hydrogen peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour or spray hydrogen peroxide (and then vinegar) on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.

I use peroxide to clean my mirrors with, there is no smearing.

Combination of vinegar and hydrogen peroxidemake a cheap, effective and non-toxic disinfectant agent and is said to be more effective at killing pathogens than bleach. As it is non-toxic, you can use it to disinfect fruits and vegetables, as well as pet toys, equipment and cages. In tests run at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, pairing Vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide mists, kills virtually all Salmonella, Shigella, or E. coli bacteria on heavily contaminated food and surfaces.

Directions

You need TWO spray bottles. DO NOT MIX the solutions together. Put straight vinegar in one and straight hydrogen peroxide in the other spray bottle.

NOTE: Light destroys peroxide rather quickly. It’s best to leave it in its original bottle and screw in a spray head. DO NOT DILUTE THEM.

Remember for any sanitizer to work properly, the surface has to be clean before you use it.

When you want to sanitize a surface (vegetables, cutting board, counters, sink, cages, toys. toilets, floors, etc.), spray one (it doesn’t matter which one you use first) on the surface, then you spray on the other. When they mix, for a brief time the chemical action of the two make a very powerful sanitizer. You can rinse off the surface afterwards, if you want, but the result is non-toxic. Fortunately it is cheap. BTW, we use it in the bathroom to sanitize the counters, toilets, floors, etc.

20. Mold

Clean with hydrogen peroxide when your house becomes a biohazard after its invaded by toxic mold, such as those with water damage.

21. Humidifiers/Steamers

Use 1 pint 3% hydrogen peroxide to 1 gallon of water.

22. Laundry / Stain Removing

Stain Remover

3% Hydrogen Peroxide is the best stain lifter if used fairly soon – although blood stains as old as 2 days have been successfully lifted with Hydrogen Peroxide. Although it will bleach or discolor many fabrics. If a little peroxide is poured onto the stain it will bubble up in the area of the blood, due to a reaction with catalase. After a few minutes the excess liquid can be wiped up with a cloth or paper towel and the stain will be gone.

3% H2O2 must be applied to clothing before blood stains can be accidentally “set” with heated water. Cold water and soap are then used to remove the peroxide treated blood.

23. Washing/Laundry

You can also add a cup of hydrogen peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

Peroxide is a perfect alternate solution to keep those clothes white. Also, when chlorinating clothes, they tend to wear out faster – peroxide won’t do that.

Food Preparation 24. Vegetable Soak

Use as a vegetable wash or soak to kill bacteria and neutralize chemicals. Add 1/4 cup 3% H202 to a full sink of cold water. Soak light skinned (light lettuce) 20 minutes, thicker skinned (like cucumbers) 30 minutes. Drain, dry and refrigerate. Prolongs freshness.

If time is a problem, spray vegetables (and fruits) with a solution of 3%. Let stand for a few minutes, rinse and dry.

25. Meat Sanitizing

You can also use it to rinse off your meat before cooking.

26. Leftover tossed salad

Spray with a solution of 1/2 cup water and 1 Tbsp. 5%. Drain, cover and refrigerate.

27. Marinade

Place meat, fish or poultry in a casserole (avoid using aluminium pans). Cover with a dilute solution of equal parts of water and 3% H202. Place loosely covered in refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Rinse and cook.

28. Sprouting Seeds

Add 1 ounce 3% hydrogen peroxide to 1 pint of water and soak the seeds overnight. Add the same amount of hydrogen peroxide each time you rinse the seeds.

Grades of Hydrogen Peroxide A) 3.5% Pharmaceutical Grade: This is the grade sold at your local drugstore or supermarket. This product is not recommended for internal use. It contains an assortment of stabilizers which shouldn’t be ingested. Various stabilizers include: acetanilide, phenol, sodium stanate and tertrasodium phosphate.

B) 6% Beautician Grade: This is used in beauty shops to color hair and is not recommended for internal use.

C) 30% Reagent Grade: This is used for various scientific experimentation and also contains stabilizers. It is also not for internal use.

D) 30% to 32% Electronic Grade: This is used to clean electronic parts and not for internal use.

E) 35% Technical Grade: This is a more concentrated product than the Reagent Grade and differs slightly in that phosphorus is added to help neutralize any chlorine from the water used to dilute it.

F) 35% Food Grade: This is used in the production of foods like cheese, eggs, and whey-containing products. It is also sprayed on the foil lining of aseptic packages containing fruit juices and milk products. THIS IS THE ONLY GRADE RECOMMENDED FOR INTERNAL USE.

G) 90%: This is used as an oxygen source for rocket fuel.

Only 35% Food Grade hydrogen peroxide is recommended for internal use. At this concentration, however, hydrogen peroxide is a very strong oxidizer and if not diluted, it can be extremely dangerous or even fatal. Any concentrations over 10% can cause neurological reactions and damage to the upper gastrointestinal tract. There have been two known fatalities in children who ingested 27% and 40% concentrations of H202. Another reports tells of a 26 month old female who swallowed one mouthful of 35% H202. She immediately began vomiting, followed by fainting and respiratory arrest. Fortunately, she was under emergency room care and although she experienced erosion and bleeding of the stomach and esophagus, she survived the incident. When she was re-examined 12 days later, the areas involved had healed (J Toxicol Clin Toxicol 90;28(1):95-100).

Personal note: As with ANY food, drug, or supplement, using the product according to instructions is key to safety. If someone uses too much, then of course ramifications may be felt. We’ve NEVER heard of ANY harmful side effects from the correct usage of Food Grade hydrogen peroxide.

35% Food Grade H202 must be….

1. handled carefully (direct contact will burn the skin- immediate flushing with water is recommended).

2. diluted properly before use.

3. stored safely and properly (after making a dilution the remainder should be stored tightly sealed in the freezer).

One of the most convenient methods of dispensing 35% H202 is from a small glass eye dropper bottle. These can be purchased at your local drugstore. Fill this with the 35% H202 and store the larger container in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator until more is needed. Store the eye dropper bottle in the refrigerator. The drops are mixed with either 6 to 8 ounces of distilled water, juice, aloe vera juice or gel.

(Don’t use chlorinated tap water to dilute the peroxide!)

Five Food-Medicines That Could Save Your Life

 

2nd June 2012

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Though Mother Nature’s formulas are proprietary, she does not grant patents.

Some of the most powerful medicines on the planet are masquerading around as foods and spices. While they do not lend themselves to being patented, nor will multi-billion dollar human clinical trials ever be funded to prove them efficacious, they have been used since time immemorial to both nourish our bodies, and to prevent and treat disease. So valued were these in ancient times that they were worth their weight in gold, and entire civilizations either rose to great power or collapsed as a result of their relationship to them.

What is even more amazing is that many of these “plant allies” are found growing in our backyards, and often sitting there in our refrigerators and spice racks, neglected and under appreciated.  In fact, many of us use these daily unaware that this is why we don’t get sick as often as those who do not incorporate them into their diet. Let’s look at a few examples….

 

1) Garlic – with the increasing prevalence of multi-drug resistant bacteria and the failure of the conventional, drug-based model to develop effective solutions against them (nor accepting responsibility for creating them), spices have regained their once universal reign as broad spectrum infection-fighters with sometimes life-saving power. Garlic, in fact, has several hundred therapeutic properties, confirmed by a growing body of scientific research, which you can view directly on GreenMedInfo.com.[i]  One quick example of garlic’s power, is in killing multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), which the mainstream media has termed the “white plague,” roiling the masses with a fear of drug-resistant (but not plant-extract resistant) they are made to believe they are defenseless against.  Last year an article was published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal showing that garlic was capable of inhibiting a wide range of multiple drug resistant tuberculosis strains.[ii] The authors concluded “The use of garlic against MDR-TB may be of great importance regarding public health.”  Garlic’s anti-infective properties do not end with MDR-TB, as it has been demonstrated to inhibit the following pathogens as well:

  • Amoeba Entamoeba histolytica (parasite)
  • Cholera
  • Clostridium
  • Cytomegalovirus
  • Dermatophytoses (a type of topical fungal infection)
  • Haemophilus Influenzae
  • Helicobacter Pylori
  • Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1
  • Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2
  • Klebsiella
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus A. (MRSA)
  • Parainfluenza Virus
  • Peridontal Infection
  • Pneumococcal Infections
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Streptococcus Mutans
  • Streptococcus Infections: Group A
  • Streptococcus Infections: Group B
  • Streptococcus pyrogenes
  • Thrush (oral fungal infection)

This amazing list underscores how important it is to keep a supply of garlic close by!

2.)  Honey – bees produce a wide range of therapeutic substances beyond honey, e.g. propolis, bee venom, royal jelly, beeswax, bee pollen, etc., but this sweet, sticky stuff that we all love to dip our paw into occasionally, is the most well-known and most copiously consumed of them all – and for good reason, it tastes great!  But did you know that this sweet treat is one of nature’s most powerful healing agents, as well? Here is just a smattering of some of honey’s more scientifically researched health benefits and/or applications:

  • Aspirin-Induced Gastrointestinal Toxicity  (honey  coats the delicate linings of the stomach, preventing aspirin-induced lesions and bleeding)
  • Bacterial Infections
  • Burns
  • Candida infection (despite the fact that honey contains sugar, it demonstrates anti-fungal properties)
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Dental plaque (a recent study showed that Manuka honey was a viable alternative to chemical mouthwash in dissolving dental plaque)[iii]
  • Dermatitis
  • Diabetic Ulcer
  • Herpes-related ulcers
  • MRSA (especially for Manuka honey)

There are many more uses for honey than covered here. Needless to say, replacing synthetic sweeteners or highly processed sugars or high fructose corn syrup with a moderate amount of honey may be a great preventative health step to take.

3) Apples – an apple a day does in fact keep the doctor away, especially cancer specialists it would seem.  For instance, one of the most well-established health benefits of consuming apples is to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. The more apples you consume, the less likely you are to develop this potentially fatal disease. To view the 5 studies that reference this relationship, go to the GreenmedInfo.com apple research page where you will also find 50 other health benefits of apple or apple byproducts (e.g. apple vinegar) consumption which include:

  • Aging, Reduce Rate
  • Allergies
  • Allopecia (Hair Loss)
  • Diarrhea
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Liver Cancer
  • Radiation Induced Illness
  • Staphylococcol Infection

4) Sunlight – this one may throw some of you off, but sunlight possesses both energy and information with real, metabolic value and is therefore a source of usable energy for the body – and so, in a very real sense it can be considered a form of food that we consume through our skin by way of its built in, melanin-based “solar panels.”  Not only does adequate sunlight exposure result in the production of vitamin D, a hormone-like substance that regulates over 2,000 genes in the human body — and as a result prevents or ameliorates hundreds of vitamin D deficiency associated health conditions – but sunlight exposure itself has a unique set of health benefits not reducible to simply vitamin D production alone.  One of the more interesting studies performed on sunlight exposure, based on data gathered from over 100 countries and published earlier this year in the journal Anticancer Research, showed that there was “a strong inverse correlations with solar UVB for 15 types of cancer,” with weaker, though still significant evidence for the protective role of sunlight in 9 other cancers. Here are some additional benefits of sunlight exposure:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Depression
  • Dopamine Deficiency
  • Dermatitis
  • Influenza
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Psoriasis

5) Turmeric  – quite possibly the world’s most important herb. Named “Kanchani,” or literally “Golden Goddess,” in the ancient Indian healing tradition, its healing properties have been deeply appreciated, if not revered for countless centuries. Turmeric has been scientifically documented to have over 500 applications in disease prevention and treatment. It also has been shown to modulate over 150 distinct biological and genetic/epigenetic pathways of value in health, demonstrating a complexity as well as gentleness that no drug on the planet has ever been shown to possess.

As there are too many health conditions that turmeric may benefit to list, we are listing the top 10 as determined by the GreenMedInfo algorithm which calculates both the evidence quantity (number of articles) and evidence quality (human study valued higher than animal, and so on). Also, the number in parentheses denotes the number of studies on the database demonstrating the beneficial relationship.

  • Oxidative Stress (160)
  • Inflammation (51)
  • DNA Damage (48)
  • Lipid Peroxidation (34)
  • Colorectal Cancer (24)
  • Breast Cancer (60)
  • Colon Cancer (52)
  • Chemically-Induced Liver Damage (34)
  • Alzheimer’s Disease (34)
  • Tumors (23)
