What to Eat When the Power Goes Out

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

When you’re in for some turbulent weather, do you head to the store with a list entitled, “Food for Power Outage?” Or do you already have a supply of food for power outages that you keep carefully hidden from your family? Many folks these days don’t have a way to cook when the power goes out, so that should be considered when creating your supply of the best foods for a power outage. If you don’t already have a stockpile of non-perishable food, it’s time to build one.

Cancer-Linked Weedkiller Found in Every Food Tested Except Broccoli

by Carey Wedler, The Anti Media:

The FDA has detected significant levels of glyphosate, a commonly used herbicide, in a wide variety of foods — but it’s unlikely the agency will release these findings to the public.

According to internal documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the Guardian and the advocacy organization U.S. Right to Know, in January of last year, FDA chemist Richard Thompson wrote to colleagues: “I have brought wheat crackers, granola cereal and corn meal from home and there’s a fair amount in all of them.”

Thompson, who is based in a regional laboratory in Arkansas, warned that the only food that didn’t contain glyphosate appeared to be broccoli.

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:

Ready Nutrition Readers, over the years, we’ve talked at length on how fish are a great addition to your prepper food supply and taught you how to catch a fish without a hook, how to make a fishing spear, and even ways to use up every ounce of your catch. Now, we’re going to cover some fine points on the smoking of fish.

As we speak, I’m throwing some salmon steaks in to broil. Good eating! Firstly, you have some of your best protein in the form of seafood or freshwater fish. The meat is high protein, packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, and it supplies forms of essential nutrients that are very beneficial in strengthening your cognitive abilities and preventing things such as Alzheimer’s disease.

A flavonoid found in guava and Osage orange has antioxidant properties that can reduce inflammation and improve “neurological deficits”

by Michelle Simmons, Natural News:

 A study carried out by a team of researchers from Binzhou City Central Hospital and the Harbin Medical University in China discovered that the flavonoid morin, which is found in guava and Osage orange, contained antioxidant properties that can lessen inflammation and improve neurological deficits in cerebral ischemia patients.

In the study, the research team blocked the middle cerebral artery of their mouse models to induce focal cerebral ischemia, which is the reduction of blood flow to the brain. They then gave the mouse models 30 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) of morin for seven days. Morin is a natural flavonoid ingredient found in a wide variety of Chinese medicinal plants that is said to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Previous research reported its beneficial effects in Parkinson’s disease model.

The findings of the study, published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines, showed that morin treatments provided beneficial effects in the reduction of focal cerebral ischemia. Rats that were administered with morin significantly weakened their neurological deficits and reinstated brain motor activities. These neurological deficits, as defined, include abnormal reflexes, inability to speak, reduced sensation, loss of balance, mental function issues, vision changes, walking problems, and weakness of the arms or legs. Furthermore, inflammation was reduced, and the antioxidant levels increased in rats that were treated with morin.

“Based on the preclinical results Morin may be a suitable clinical molecule for the amelioration of array of brain ischemic conditions as a result of oxidative damage,” the researchers wrote.

In conclusion, the researchers found that morin provided beneficial effects on cerebral ischemia assault as it mitigates oxidative stress, prevents apoptosis, and reduces inflammation. Its neuroprotective effects may be used as a powerful agent in the treatment of ischemic stroke.

What is cerebral ischemia?

Cerebral ischemia, also known as brain ischemia, is a type of stroke that develops when there is insufficient blood flow in the brain to meet metabolic needs, which results to limited oxygen supply or cerebral hypoxia. There is a blockage in an artery that supplies blood to the brain. This in turn cause death of brain tissue, cerebral infarction, or ischemic stroke. (Related: Citrus fruit may help lower the risk of stroke in women.)

Cerebral ischemia has two kinds — focal and global ischemia. Focal cerebral ischemia is confined to a certain part of the brain and occurs when a blood clot has blocked a cerebral vessel. With this, blood flow is reduced to the affected brain part, which increases the risk of cell death in the area. It can either be a result of thrombosis or embolism. On the other hand, global cerebral ischemia occurs when blood flow to wide regions of the brain is stopped or reduced. Cardiac arrest typically triggers this type of brain ischemia.

Vitamin D – Surprising truths and myths revealed

0

by Jonathan Landsman, Natural News:

According to the CDC, breast cancer – the most common cause of cancer in women – claimed over 41,000 lives in 2014 alone. Yet integrative healthcare providers, like Dr. Daniel Cobb, say that the toll from this horrible disease could be sharply reduced by simply understanding the value of nutritional supplementation – especially the use of vitamin D.

In fact, Dr. Cobb notes that many experts estimate that breast cancer cases would be reduced by 100,000 cases per year – and possibly eliminated entirely – by just maintaining optimal levels of vitamin D in the body. (but, there are many misunderstanding that MUST be cleared up)

Discover the tremendous healing potential of vitamin D. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Daniel Cobb, Doctor of Oriental Medicine and an authority on integrative healing protocols, reveal the often-misunderstood truth about vitamin D production by addressing many of the most common myths of this vitamin. Don’t miss this informative show about how you can greatly reduce the risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease.

Emerging research reveals the amazing therapeutic powers of vitamin D

Known as the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D is actually a fat-soluble hormone that plays a vital role in immune system health. In addition to maintaining bones and teeth, vitamin D also helps to protect against many debilitating diseases, including cancer, heart disease and neurodegenerative conditions.

Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiencies are widespread in the United States – and cause increased susceptibility to many diseases. For instance, recent studies have shown that people with deficient levels of vitamin D have a 122 percent higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Other conditions associated with poor vitamin D status include multiple sclerosis, depression and respiratory infections.

In addition to bolstering the immune system, vitamin D also helps the body detoxify carcinogenic heavy metals – which contributes to its anticancer properties.

The body creates vitamin D in response to sunshine, and natural health experts recommend exposure to direct sunlight for at least 20 minutes, several times a week. Although vitamin D is available in certain foods, supplementation is usually required in order to achieve optimal levels in the blood.

For maximum benefit, natural health experts advise supplementing with vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, which is the form naturally created in the body. Using vitamin D2, or ergocalciferol – the version of vitamin D produced by plants – doesn’t provide the same benefits.

Join us – on the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour – for a closer look at one of the most important vitamins available for optimal health.

Physical, geographic and lifestyle factors all affect the individual need for vitamin D

The National Institutes of Health recommend that adults take 600 IU a day of vitamin D – an amount recently raised from 400 IU in response to studies showing vitamin D’s therapeutic benefits.

According to Dr. Cobb, the recommended daily amount is “almost never enough” – especially for the purposes of cancer prevention. And, naturopathic physicians tend to agree, with many prescribing supplementary dosages in the area of 8,000 IU a day – well over ten times the NIH recommendations.

No doubt, there is real confusion about how much vitamin D is really needed to stay healthy.

For example, the Vitamin D Council recommends that adults take 5,000 IU of the vitamin a day – while the Institutes of Medicine state that 4,000 IU is the “tolerable safe upper limit.”

With the bewildering variations in suggested dosages, how much is the right amount?

The answer, says Dr. Cobb, is highly individual – as ideal dosages vary with body weight, color of skin, time spent in the sun, amount of skin exposed to sun, sunscreen use or lack of it, and the altitude and latitude of where you live.

The best way to determine the proper dosage of vitamin D for you, says Dr. Cobb, is through blood tests, which can reveal your vitamin D status. Dr. Cobb reports that he personally takes 4,000 IUs per day in the winter months, and reduces to 1,000 IUs daily in the summer.

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

John C. Dvorak from the No Agenda Show podcast wrote for PC Magazine for THIRTY YEARS. However, while he wrote extensively for the magazine, in August of this year he wrote a less than “PC” (pun intended!) article about the dangers of 5G (read it here) entitled, “The Problem With 5G”. Unhappy with what he wrote, the magazine fired him, removed his original content, then replaced it with some industry supported drivel (read that here). (Yikes, they really didn’t like what he had to say!)

New Jersey banker says Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder gave him cancer… jury awards $37 million in compensatory damages

by Jessica Dolores, DC Clothesline:

For many mothers, talc powder is a sign of love. They enjoy its sweet smell on their baby’s soft, sensitive skin, and believe it makes their baby feel fresh and stay free from diaper rash. On the opposite end of the spectrum, adults apply talc on parts of their body that are most likely to sweat — like the underarms — to keep it from itching when they perspire. Little do they know that the talc powder may be doing more harm than good.

A judge in Middlesex County, New Jersey, has just awarded $30 million in damages to a banker who got sick of mesothelioma, an aggressive, deadly cancer that affects the lung’s lining. Lanzo said he used talcum powder for decades. His wife Kendra, for her part, got $7 million in damages, thus bringing the total amount of damages to $37 million.
