Water Fluoridation

Fluoride Safety

The City of London, Canada claims that the fluoride added to its water, known as Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (HFS), comes from an ore mined and processed in Florida. One only needs to search ‘fluoride mined in Florida’ to learn that the fluoride added to London Canada’s drinking water comes from Monsanto’s competitor – Mosaic, another large producer of fertilizers and pesticides. Mosaic is also an offshoot of the duPont chemical company.

Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (HFS) is classified as a toxic waste and was the key chemical in atomic bomb production during WWII – known as the ultra-secret Manhattan Project.  Information on the effects of fluoride on human health was somehow considered ‘Top Secret” and consequently classified under ‘national security reasons’.   Over fifty years later, the declassified government documents show that initial lawsuits arising from DuPont’s use of fluoride in their A-bomb production, was over the damage caused by the fluoride chemical used in the manufacture of the atomic bomb by DuPont.

This begs the question: Did the DuPont Chemical Company, thinking only of its reputation, convince the US government to add fluoride to the nation’s water supply as a means to escape liability from the damage fluoride caused to local farmers in New Jersey during the Manhattan Project?

The United States and Canada are two countries that permits adding  fluoride, a toxic chemical, to the nation’s water supply.  The arguments for and against fluoridation have not changed much since the beginning back in the sixties. Health Canada and the World Health Organization (WHO) can cite evidence about the efficacy of fluoride in dental health.  As with any scientific report, it can be manipulated by ‘what do you want the results to be?’

The DuPont company patented non-biodegradable plastic in 1937, after ensuring the biodegradable hempen plastic, was not a threat.

The DuPont chemical company is notorious for escaping liability.  A chemical DuPont used in the manufacture of teflon, called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and referred to as C8 was known to cause cancer, yet any study to this was specifically ignored.

 

 

 

 

GE Hemp Interest

say no

In a recent NCBI publication entitled ‘Cannabis sativa: The Plant of the Thousand and One Molecules‘, it was pointed out the great interest that the pharmaceutical industry and the agriculture industry has on hemp.

What is most alarming in this article was the following statement with respect to the article’s coverage:

“Biotechnological avenues to enhance the production and bioactivity of hemp secondary metabolites are proposed by discussing the power of plant genetic engineering and tissue culture.”

In Canada, Hemp production is controlled by the Industrial Hemp Regulations.

Included in Canada’s Industrial Hemp Regulations is the type of cultivar or seed Canada allows. Section 14 (3) states:  “On and after January 1, 2000, an approved cultivar referred to in subsection (1) must be of a pedigreed status …”

Pedigree status is further defined in subsection 2(2) as: “with respect to seed, means seed that is of foundation status, registered status, or certified status, or seed that is approved by the Canadian Seed Growers’ Association (CSGA) as being breeder seed or select seed. Foundation, registered, and certified status are further defined for seed that is produced in Canada or elsewhere. Seed that is not produced in Canada must meet the standards for varietal purity established by an official certifying agency and be approved by the CSGA.” 

This legislation further states that the only two official systems recognized to produce seed of pedigreed status includes:

  1. AASCO- The Association of American Seed Control Officials – and
  2. OECD – The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development

 

According to Science Central, crop genetic engineering is now defined as:

“a technology where the genome of a host crop is engineered with a foreign donor gene regulated by certain gene regulatory sequences (promoter, terminator, etc.). Crop genetic engineering started in 1983 [1] via expressing of a bacterial gene in tobacco, and the first transgenic (genetically modified or GM) food crop (i.e. Flavr Savr tomato) was commercialized by Calgene Company in 1994 [2]. In crop genetic engineering, genes are randomly inserted into a host plant genome.
Although scientists add genes to crops via crop breeding, the breeding progeny is not considered a GM crop because the inserted genes and their regulatory sequences belong to the same host crop genus or in rare cases (for example, in case of cross breeding of oat and barley), to the host’s cross breedable crop.
If the donor gene and all of transgene’s regulatory sequences belong to the same crop species or belong to the host’s cross breedable species, the resulting crop is called “cisgenic”. In the cisgenic technology, the cisgene must be an identical copy of the host’s native gene cassette, including its regulatory sequences integrated in the host plant in the normal-sense orientation.
The crop intragenic is a technology that inserts gene cassettes containing specific genetic sequences from crops that are belonging to the same breedable gene pool into a host crop genome. In this case, the gene coding sequences (with or without introns) can be regulated by promoters and terminators of different genes as far as those genes that contribute towards the transgene regulation belong to the same cross breedable gene pool [3].”

 

 

 

PLU Codes: FYI – a Must Know

omg

The sticker on your produce is very important as it reveals a lot about how the produce was grown. The sticker is called a PLU or price look-up code. The sad news is that PLU codes are not mandatory, thanks to our governments that are in bed with Monsanto and its array of subsidiaries (including Cargill, American Seeds, Kruger, Western Seed, Ontario Seed, and many more). Click here for a list of Monsanto subsidiaries

The PLU code for conventionally grown US produce have traditionally maintained an individually unique four digit PLU code. Traditional or conventionally grown produce is grown using pesticides. When the dangers of GE crops became known, organic produce gained in value and consequently, it became paramount to distinguish products grown traditionally, organically and those grown by genetic modification.

A four-digit PLU code begins with a three (3) or four (4) and means the produce is ‘probably’ conventionally or traditionally grown with the use of chemicals such as chemical fertilizers, fungicides and/or herbicides. The word ‘probably’ was mandated by lobbyists as a way to downplay the use of chemicals on food products. These four digits represent the type of produce it is. As an example, large lemons conventionally grown in the US have a PLU code of 4053.

lemon plu code

In the above image, the lemon has a five digit “price look-up” code that begins with a nine (9). A five digit code beginning with a nine means that the produce is grown organically and is not genetically modified. This is the sticker or PLU code that you want to find when feeding your loved ones.

gmo-apple

A five digit code that begins with an eight (8), as in the above apple example, means that the apple IS genetically modified (it contains genes from other organisms). The most commonly sold GE produce with a PLU code beginning with an eight (8) are various species of corn, soybeans, canola, cotton, papaya and squash.

There is a problem with this system in that product labelling for GE produce is not mandatory. As a result,it is rare to see a five digit PLU code that begins with the digit eight (8). Why? The simple answer is that any consumer who knows the dangers of genetically modified produce would certainly refuse to buy those identified as such (i.e. produce that contains five digits and starts with an 8, as laid out in the present system). In fact, many subsidiary seed companies of Monsanto do not even want any gardener to know which of their seeds are genetically modified.

EMF (Electromagnetic Fields) Revisited

expelled

Are you aware of the true dangers of not shutting off your WiFi and/or cellular phone?

If not, listen up because your health depends on it!

EMF or Electromagnetic Field is becoming a household word and is everywhere. EMF affects our health in a very detrimental way. However, as of 2016 the official word from the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) is:

 Some organizations recommend caution in cell phone use. More research is needed before we know if using cell phones causes health effects.”

An experiment conducted with ninth graders in Denmark  involved planting seeds near wifi routers that gave off the same amount of detected radiation as cell phones, and planting seeds separate and away from wifi technology of any sort. The shocking results revealed that the seeds planted close to wifi routers did not grow at all while the seeds planted away from wifi technology of any sort, thrived.

Although heart disease is the number one cause of mortality in both the United States and Canada, there are many causes according to conventional medicine and include .  vascular disease, electrical conduction defects, muscle problems, valvular effects, congenital defects, infectious problems, trauma and pericardial problems, all as the direct or primary cause of the cardiac disease. Other non-direct problems can also affect the heart secondary to other systemic issues, including, but not limited to, hypertension, kidney disease, lung disease, autoimmune diseases, toxicities of various kinds, etc.

Magnetic fields have been found to significantly affect cardiac or heart function, in addition to a myriad of effects on other parts of the body. Not all magnetic fields are the same since different types of magnetic fields can have different effects on the heart, hormones and pysch.

Having to constantly fight for my breath and trying to accept this continual state of erratic heart beats  as normal, you can not imagine my astonishment when I shut down all  WiFi and Cellphones in the house and the immediate improved effect this had on my ability to breath!

When you feel in your gut that conventional medicine is not helping you, and you see that conventional medicine, as it relates to your individual condition, has no answers, chances are it adds up to a “false flag” (perpetrated by the “Doctors” for the Pharmaceutical Cartel).

Electromagnetic Field sources that can  wreck havoc on your health and the source can include Wifi or wireless connections such as your wi-fi printers, laptop, computer, tablet; Xbox or Wii connection; cell phones; smart meters; wireless routers and also the cell towers;  above or underground power lines along with microwave ovens among others.

How are you able to determine the amount of EMF in your environment? The answer is to test it yourself through the use of a Gauss meter in which a number of styles are available.

Why are we not warned by the definitive danger associated with EMF? Big business is more concerned with their bottom line and not you!

Genetically Modified Pot?

MMAR home grown
homegrown

Under the MMAR (Canada’s old Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations), it allowed patients in Canada to choose their medicine. After all, are we not masters of our own domain? Able to determine what our body needs? When did we give that up, if we did?

The above “thin layer chromatography” (TLC) chromatogram (a.k.a. bud footprint) clearly identifies more than just THC in three bud samples tested  (including a sample of BC Bud). These are buds grown under the MMAR regulations, when patients in Canada had a choice and could choose their medicine.

Compare being Masters of our own Domain, above,  with what Health Canada has regulated, below:

LP pot
LP pot

LP Pot (pot from Licensed Producers), is the second chromatogram and shows three samples from Licensed Producers’ pot, under the MMPR. Please take a minute to compare the two chromatograms, both shown above.

LP pot, second example, only shows THC and in a very strange way. Genetically altered?

The question that needs an answer is this:

Are patients in Canada guaranteed that the Health Minister has not again sold out out health to genetically altered cannabis cultivars to and from Big Pharma?

Liver Cancer in Adults and Cannabinoids

not just for hippies

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), also known as liver cancer,  is reported to have a high mortality rate and has no adequate treatment. However, Allopathic Practitioners still use their “cut, poison and burn” methods of medical care.

Fortunately, thanks to the many proponents of natural health, science has recently disclosed their discovery of our endogenous cannabinoid system and how we all carry cannabinoid receptors  (the endogenous cannabinoid system is also called the endocannabinoid system for short). In addition, the phytocannabinoids that are unique to the cannabis plant, have the ability of using the signals of our cannabinoid receptors in our bodies to activate our endocannabinoid system back to a homeostasis state i.e. the phytocannabinoids help our bodies regain a level of optimal health.

If the above sounds too far fetched, is it not more far fetched as to why a medicinal plant was demonized and criminalized to the extent it was in the first place?

For a scientific explanation of how the cannabinoids in cannabis can cure liver cancer (HCC), do review this and other articles.

Say No to Monsanto

gm corn

Monsanto claims their GE crops are safe and “substantially equivalent” to other food and therefore, does not need disclosure in food labels nor extra regulation. On the other hand, they claim their GE seeds are a novel invention that requires a patent.

Their Bt Corn  is genetically crossed with material from a bacteria known as Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). This corn is also registered as a pesticide.

Is genetically engineered food safe? Consider the scientific studies from Professor Seralini in France.

A professor of molecular biology at the University of Caen in France, Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini conducted a long term scientific study on the effects of Bt corn on rats and concluded that this corn or roundup ready fertilizer has the effect of causing cancer and severe organ damage. When these findings were first published in 2012 in Food and Chemical Toxicology (Elsevier), it caused such an uproar that Food and Chemical retracted the story on the basis that the study was full of faults and therefore unfounded. However, the study was found credible and was republished in 2014 in the open-access journal Environmental Sciences Europe.

Corporations need to understand that it is necessary to learn to live in harmony with nature. Corporations like Monsanto threaten the future of nature and the lives of everyone and everything with their attempts at controlling nature.

Heads up!  Since this book will be available free of charge for three days beginning – Friday, February 28, 2014, I would really appreciate feedback!  Naturally, please do post on line at Amazon what you liked.  I would be grateful for privately receiving honest advise.

This book was written for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis – “cut, poison and burn” are NOT the only choices!

After refusing “the only methods of treating cancer” – (and keeping this story short) I don’t understand why herbal remedies –  that have been used for thousands of years in the east – are not considered effective in North America.

With this eBook, the intention is with educating, informing, and alive to tell you – this herb works!

Turmeric Benefits

Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is a widely used spice throughout the world and is a great source of many health and beauty benefits. It is native to the Indian subcontinent and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as far back as 3000 BC. . Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial spice plant, related to ginger. It has a mixed taste and light scent of orange and ginger Turmeric looks like ginger but is distinguished by its bright yellow-orange color.

General Use:

In addition to turmeric’s many medicinal health benefits , it is use in cuisine is extensive as an ingredient in the curry spice. In addition, turmeric is used commercially as a dye and as a preservative in food. Another very popular use that provides many benefits is in beauty routines and is known as a main ingredient in many beauty products.

Chemical and Nutritional Value:

Curcuminoids, the main chemical compound in turmeric, has historically been used in Ayurvedic medicine as an effective protectant against several toxins in the liver. Curcuminoids are turmeric’s primary bioactive components including: Curcumin; demethoxycurcumin, and bis demethoxyxurxumin. Turmerone, Atlantone, and Zinzinberenwe are extracted from turmeric and form strong volatile oil with powerful antioxidant benefits and use. When turmeric is used as food additive then it is called as E-100.
100 grams of turmeric contain the following nutritional value: : 6.30 grams protein; 150 mg calcium; 67.8 mg of Iron; , 69.4 grams carbohydrates; 2.6 grams fiber, 3.5 grams of other minerals and 349 kilo calories of energy.

Uses in Beauty Treatments:

Turmeric is widely used in Indian subcontinent and many beauty products are found to contain turmeric as the main ingredient. Turmeric is also called “Haldi” or “Holud” in Indian subcontinent.
Turmeric is associated with a long list of skincare and other benefits including, but not limited to: acne, dry or oily skin, removal of dark circles, wrinkles and facial hair, sunburn, skin pigmentation, cracked hill (heals), hair problems such as hair dye, loss of hair etc. – all of which are common in men and women.
Against Skin problems:

• Antibiotic and antiseptic components work against acne. Acne scars and inflammation runs away using turmeric face pack.

• Facial mask with turmeric is always found in beauty parlors of India and non-Indian famous parlors. Turmeric keeps balance of water and oil entering the inter-lairs of skin. Thus a user can have non-oily or non-dry skin.

• Wrinkles, dark spots and fine lines due to aging are easily eliminated or greatly reduced using turmeric topically.

• Cracked heels can be unsighly. Turmeric works as a healing agent by combining a few drops of coconut oil and powder of turmeric and rubbing this mixture into heels – producing “hills” as soft as Youngers’ hills.

• Mixing turmeric with a few grams of flour can remove the dead cells from the skins. “If anyone tries this everyday then he or she would have dead cells free skin”.

Use in Medicine:

Turmeric is not only used in beauty treatments but also used as health supplements. Turmeric is referred to as “Holy powder” in India. This shows the needs of turmeric in medical treatments. This spice is mostly used in Ayurveda, Herbal, Allopathic etc. types of medical treatments.

These are examples of turmeric in medicine and treatment fields:

• Turmeric fills up the burns and cuts like no other antiseptics.
• Turmeric can reduce the chances to have prostate cancer when mixing up with cauliflower.
• Turmeric reduces liver toxicity, childhood leukemia, chances of breast cancer attack along with other cancers
• Daily cooked foods including turmeric kills pain of body muscles and bones.
• Turmeric works against inflammation such as arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis ;
• Turmeric increases brain’s kinetic energy. It is better for the students.
• Wounds can be healed with this spice.
• In China, people use this as medicine to cure depression.
• “Turmeric increases the dimension of digestion”.
• Turmeric purifies the bloodstream.
• Turmeric and recipes of turmeric keep the fat far from the body. This means a man doesn’t need to visit a dietitian or physician to loss the weight.
• Liver functions work well using turmeric as medicine.

The benefits of turmeric can’t be illustrated in just an article. Users and food lovers will always love to keep turmeric as a medical component in their foods or supplements.
As with other medicinal herbs with a long history of efficacy in “alternative” medicine – and proven to be used as far back as the BC era, conventional medicine today are taught their use is not proven effective nor are they approved by the FDA.

Although this blog is a short introduction to the many beneficial uses of Turmeric, an eBook has been released on Amazon-Kindle.
Turmeric is one of the first “vitamins” I was introduced to by directly contacting India, after refusing conventional cancer treatment offered in Canada. Although liver cancer is said to be a death sentence, my gut told me “not if I can escape this archaic treatment of killing immunity” and literally ran!

Do find our eBook on Amazon as it contains way more information than this blog.

A Cancer Cure? The Amazing Health and Beauty Benefits of Turmeric

Tulsi Holy Basil “The Queen of Herbs”

 

Tulsi Holy Basil Ebook Cover

The above book is now available at Amazon Kindle!

Tulsi Holy Basil has been used in Ayurveda, one of the oldest systems of medicine, for as far back as 1500 BC.

The most recent discovery with this herb (besides curing almost all diseases in existence) is that it is found to be able to cleanse water of fluoride!  Research scientists at Rajasthan University have discovered that Tylsi can replace some more expensive alternatives to fluoride removal!  With the recent admittance by Harvard University that fluoride is bad for health, the news of Tulsi’s latest ability is most welcome.

This book offers a plethora of information and the authors have written it for those presently unaware of just how beneficial this herb is to our health
