  2. 2. Health Matters ChallengeIs this statement TRUE or Go to next page for answer.FALSE? Vitamins have led to 0 deaths over the past 27 years. In contrast, pharmaceutical drugs were responsible for 3 million deaths, topping the death toll from traffic- related incidents.
  3. 3. Whole Food Vitamins Don’t Kill  The statistics come from the Annual Report ofTRU the American Association of Poison Control Centers National Poison Data System (NPDS), and the findings go against the claims of mostE mainstream doctors and medical officials, who assert that pharmaceutical drugs are the only science-backed method to treating illness. However, the report highlights the fact that pharmaceuticals oftentimes lead to death and countless other side effects. In fact, the number of hospitalizations and side effects were not documented by the report. While the report only detailed the 3 million deaths as a result of drug use, countless other adverse health effects have been linked to popular pharmaceuticals such as cold and allergy medications.
  4. 4. Tens of thousands of Americans have adegenerative health condition called ASD. What isit?A. Experts believe that ASD is a subset of B. ASD is a term used to encapsulate the Gulf War Syndrome. Gulf War symptoms of recurring headaches, soldiers experienced aspartame unbearable migraines, depression, poisoning after drinking diet soft anxiety, muscle pain, arthritis flare ups, stored in often high temperature buzzing or ringing in the ears, chronic conditions.

Many people experience When this happens, the body makes central nervous system disorders, autoantibodies that attack normal cramping, nervous twitches and cells by mistake. abnormal reflexes. D. ASD, or Artificial Sweetener Disease is a combination of A & B
  5. 5. Cure for ASD is FREE  ASD stands for Artificial Sweetener Disease. The beliefA& B that there is not enough artificial sweetener in any specific product to cause health concerns is false, especially now that in 2011 there are synthetic sweeteners in over 25% of all food, drink, gum and candy available. This cumulative effect has created ASD… In fact, over 70 percent of reported cases of fibromyalgia, chronic depression, IBS and acid reflux are caused by consuming chemical agents which have been approved by the FDA for consumption.  The cure for Artificial Sweetener Disease is absolutely free and involves no doctor, no health insurance co-pays, and has zero side effects: throw away your sugar free gum and candy, and then trash all foods and drinks you have that are labeled "light" and "zero." Read the labels on everything, so you can filter out all artificial sweeteners from your products, including aspartame, sucralose, sorbitol, acesulfame-k, aspartic acid, and saccharine.
  6. 6. Pet birds die from vapors released from Teflonpans. TRUE?  FALSE?
  7. 7. True Nonstick or ―Teflon‖ pans is made out of Perfluorooctanoic acod (PFOA), a likely human carcinogen. When heated, nonstick coating releases small amounts of PFOA particles and gases into the air. Pet birds have an acute response to these vapors and often die when Teflon pans are used in the home. PFOA has been found to cause cancer, organ damage, and birth defects in animals. The manufacture, use, and disposal of PFOA products had been shown to pose an environmental and health risk because these long-lived toxic chemicals continue to build up in our bodies, the environment, and in wildlife overtime. To reduce risk, the Toxic-Free Legacy Coalition recommends stainless steel, cast-iron, or enameled cast-iron cookware.
  8. 8. True or False? Contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) reduces the odds of recurring breast cancer. Background: Women, who are diagnosed with cancer in one breast, often decide to have both breasts removed in a procedure known as CPM.
  9. 9. False  CPM have been offered to women as a kind of insurance; supposedly, it will greatly reduce the odds they will not get breast cancer again. Although the rates of this surgical procedure are soaring (a whopping 150 percent increase in recent years), the real proof of whether it is worthwhile has been lacking. However, researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have just announced the results of research showing CPM provides little significant benefit…
  10. 10. There is chicken poop in your burgers and McDonalds doesn’tlike it and have been pushing for legislation to curtail thispractice. True or False
  11. 11. TRUEUSDA regulations allow chicken feces to be usedas feed for cows. According to the FDA, farmersfeed their cattle anywhere from 1 million to 2 milliontons of chicken feces each year. To avoid eatingburgers and meat made from cows fed fecalmatter, always purchase grass-fed meats.
  12. 12. True or False?How are you  The US Food and Drugdoing so far? Administration (FDA) worked hand- in-hand with GlaxoSmithKline, maker diabetes drug Avandia, to downplay Avandias dangers, effectively preserving billions of dollars in yearly revenue for GSK from the sale of the "blockbuster" drug despite the drug being linked to, according to FDA scientists, ―83,000 heart attacks.‖
  13. 13. True The FDA intentionally  GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) dismissed safety concerns the maker of Paxil, found by the agencys own Wellbutrin, Advair and scientists – data that Levitra illegally paid showed Avandia was doctors to promote associated with 83,000 dangerous drugs, including heart attacks. According Avandia, manipulated to a statistical analysis in scientific data to get the report, if all the dangerous drugs approved diabetics currently taking and deliberately hid Avandia were put on a evidence about the "safer" drug, it would avert dangers of its diabetes 500 heart attacks and 300 drug Avandia . In a recent cases of heart failure every settlement, GSK will pay month in the United States the US Goveremnt $3 alone. billion; GSK generated $43 billion in revenue in 2010.

  15. 15. Cancer *The milky white sap that comes from its crushed leaves have been found to effectivelytreat wound development in lung cancer cells by halting the disease and preventingmetastasis. Researchers from the University of Colorado publishing in the journalMolecular Carcinogenesis found that treatment with silibinin, a major component of milkthistle, effectively treated wound development in lung cancer cells by halting the diseaseand preventing metastasis. Long known for its rejuvenating effects on the liver, milkthistle is now emerging as a viable therapy to help prevent and reverse the damagecaused by years of cellular breakdown in lung tissue.* Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) has been used for 2,000 years as an herbal remedyfor a variety of ailments, particularly liver, kidney, and gall bladder problems.
  16. 16. Who said this?“The world today has 6.8 billion people... thats headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent." Bill Gates American business magnate, investor, philanthropist, and author. Gates is the former CEO and current chairman of Microsoft the software company Janet Napolitano the third and current United States Secretary of Homeland Security, serving in the administration of President Barack Obama Regina M. Benjamin, MD, MBA is the 18th Surgeon General of the United States. As America’s Doctor, she provides the public with the best scientific information available on how to improve their health and the health of the nation.

In fact, the man in charge of this FDA policy, Michael Taylor was Monsanto’s former attorney, and later their vice- president. The White House under George H. W. Bush had instructed the FDA to promote the biotechnology industry, and so the FDA created a new position for Michael Taylor. As a result of the policy that he oversaw, if Monsanto and others want to put a GM crop on the market, they don’t even have to tell the FDA. GM companies do participate in a voluntary and highly superficial consultation process with the FDA, in which they offer just summary data and their own conclusions of safety. The Obama administration has re-installed Taylor at the FDA, as the US Food Safety Czar.
  24. 24. Who just bought 500,000 shares inMonsanto?  Warren Buffet  Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation  The World Health Foundation  Nancy Pelosi
  25. 25. Bill & Melinda Gates FoundationThe Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation assets are being used for such things as…purchasing 500,000 shares of Monsanto…Monsanto is the company responsible for the creation of Agent Orange, which afterbeing used in the Vietnam War led to over 150,000 being born with birth defects.Over 3 million Vietnamese adults were also negatively impacted. Monsanto alsocreated Posilac, which is more commonly known as bovine growth hormone. Thisartificial growth hormone synthetically led to higher volumes of milk production incows, in addition to destroying the animals health. However, the damage done wasnot only limited to animals. In humans Posilac was found to lead to elevated risks ofdeveloping a tumor, due to increased levels of IGF (Insulin-like growth factor).Monsanto is now the largest biotechnology company in the world, responsible forgenetically modifying a large portion of the worlds food supply.(continued on next page)
  26. 26. On August 30, 2010, The Bill and Melinda GatesFoundation purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock.This company has driven thousands of Indian farmers tokill themselves after they were unable to pay massamounts of debt back to the company. Additionally, thesuicide was so prevalent among farmers in the area that ithas been dubbed the "suicide belt" of India. Farmers whowere promised increased revenue by the biotech giantwere soon overcome with debt and regret. Some farmersdrank the very insecticide they were given to use on theircrops.If the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation were trulyattempting to "reduce extreme poverty," like their missionstatement claimed, then why would they support anorganization like Monsanto?Learn more:

Guess the name of the―seasoning.‖ What ―seasoning‖ did the US begin manufacturing subsequent to WWII after learning that rations for soldiers on the opposing side included this substance? When the FDA ―generally regarded as safe‖ (GRAS) standard for food additives was established in 1958, what substance was grandfathered in without any testing to verify its safety? What food additive, so omnipresent in fast food restaurants that even salads often contain it, has been linked to obesity as well as depression, migraines, mental confusion, dizziness, anxiety or panic attacks, stiffness, joint pain, loss of balance, slurred speech, diarrhea, blurred vision and ADHD? What chemical substance do food manufacturers love to use so much that they have
  28. 28. MSGMonosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer that’sknown widely as an addition to Chinese food, but that’sactually added to thousands of the foods you and your familyregularly eat, especially if you are like most Americans andeat the majority of your food as processed foods or inrestaurants.MSG is one of the worst food additives on the market and isused in canned soups, crackers, meats, salad dressings,frozen dinners and much more. It’s found in your localsupermarket and restaurants, in your child’s school cafeteriaand, amazingly, even in baby food and infant formula.MSG is more than just a seasoning like salt and pepper, itactually enhances the flavor of foods, making processedmeats and frozen dinners taste fresher and smell better, saladdressings more tasty, and canned foods less tinny.
  29. 29. Why is MSG dangerous? A. Don’t be silly – it’s not dangerous! It certainlyTake a does not affect me…guess ortwo! B. MSG excites cells to death. C. MSG causes heart attacks. D. MSG causes brain damage – to varying degrees E. MSG causes short term reactions like drowsiness, headache, tingling, difficulty breathing, numbness, burning sensation, weakness, headache, nausea… F. Regular consumption of MSG leads to obesity, eye damage, headaches depression, fatigue and disorienation
  30. 30. MSG is dangerous  One of the best overviews of the very real dangers of MSG comes from Dr.B, C, D, E Russell Blaylock, a board-certified neurosurgeon and author of ―Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills.‖ In it he explains that MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death, causing brain damage to varying degrees -- and potentially even triggering or worsening learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease and more.  Part of the problem also is that free glutamic acid is the same neurotransmitter that your brain, nervous system, eyes, pancreas and other organs use to initiate certain processes in your body.[4] Even the FDA states: “Studies have shown that the body uses glutamate, an amino acid, as a nerve impulse transmitter in the brain and that there are glutamate-responsive tissues in other parts of the body, as well. Abnormal function of glutamate receptors has been linked with certain neurological diseases, such as Alzheimers disease and Huntingtons chorea. Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in damage to nerve cells in the brain.”[5].  According to Dr. Blaylock, numerous glutamate receptors have been found both within your hearts electrical conduction system and the heart muscle itself. This can be damaging to your heart, and may even explain the sudden deaths sometimes seen among young athletes.  He says: “When an excess of food-borne excitotoxins, such as MSG, hydrolyzed protein soy protein isolate and concentrate, natural flavoring, sodium caseinate and aspartate from aspartame, are consumed, these glutamate receptors are over-stimulated, producing cardiac arrhythmias.  When magnesium stores are low, as we see in athletes, the glutamate receptors are so sensitive that even low levels of these excitotoxins can result in cardiac arrhythmias and death.”[6]

  34. 34. HFCS or corn sugarThere is a lot of disinformation the food manufacturers, the government andthe mainstream health establishment have put out about HFCS beingharmless.Those crafty television commercials that claim high fructose corn syrup(HFCS) is basically the same thing as conventional sugar have gotten theCorn Refiners Association (CRA), the group responsible for creating them, ina heap of trouble. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reports that thesugar industry has now sued CRA for making these and other unprovenclaims about HFCS that are inaccurate and misleading to consumers.

The correct test you should receive is 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D. You will want to ensure that you are in the optimal vitamin D level range. The optimal range is 50-70 ng/ml, though anything over 100 is in excess. In contrast, 50 ng/ml or below is in the deficient range.  Most Americans are in the deficient range.
  39. 39. True or FalseTo remain within "safe" limits, youd have touse such a small amount of fluoridatedtoothpaste that one tube would last youseveral years.
  40. 40. TrueAccording to the research literature, you shouldbrush with no more than one-quarter of a milligramof fluoride, and call Poison Control if you swallowthat amount… When you see a toothpaste ad, thatlong swirl of toothpaste is actually more than onemonths worth!
  41. 41. True or FalseChina does NOT allow water fluoridation because its tootoxic and causes damage, according to their studies. Instead,the waste product from their phosphate fertilizer industry isshipped to the United States, where we add it to our watersupply!This is a very important point: the fluoride added to yourwater is NOT pharmaceutical grade. Its a toxic industrialwaste product, which is also contaminated with lead, arsenic,radionucleotides, aluminum and other industrialcontaminants.
  42. 42. TrueAbout 75 percent of Americans get fluoridated water, and just over 65 percenthave artificially fluoridated water with hydrofluorosilicic acid; the toxic wasteproduct from phosphate industries
  43. 43. True or FalseBackground: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, degenerative disease of the nerves in yourbrain and spinal column, caused by the destruction of myelin, the insulating substance aroundthe nerves in your central nervous system. When the myelin is damaged by an autoimmunedisease or self-destructive process in your body, the function of those nerves deteriorate overtime, resulting in a number of symptoms, including: muscle weakness , imbalance, or loss ofcoordination; astigmatism and vision loss , tremors.According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke there is no cure forMS. True or False?
  44. 44. False…according to Dr. Terry Wahls who reversed She discovered that three nutrients in multiple sclerosis after seven particular are essential for proper mitochondrial years of deterioration on the best function: conventional treatments available 1.Animal-based omega-3 fat -- simply by changing her diet! 2.Creatine Dr. Wahls discovered that, for some 3.Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) or better yet the unknown reason, in addition to the reduced version known as Ubiquinol commonly known symptoms, MS patients brains also tend to shrink. This Just by adding those three to her diet, her roused her curiosity, and led her to decline began to slow. But she wasnt research other diseases that have improving, so she continued sleuthing through similar brain shrinkage, namely the medical research in search for an answer. Huntingtons, Parkinsons and When she discovered the Institute for Alzheimers Disease. One common Functional Medicine, Dr. Wahl began to find denominator is poorly functioning more clues. mitochondria. Mitochondria are like little batteries in your cells that manage the energy supply to the cell, and unless you consume the correct nutrients, eventual mitochondrial malfunction is the obvious result.
  45. 45. DIET reversed the Dr’s MSAs mentioned earlier, myelin is aninsulating, waxy substance that sheathesthe nerves in your central nervoussystem. Your myelin also needs specificnutrients to function properly, such as:•Vitamin B1•Vitamin B9•Vitamin B12•Animal-based omega-3 fat•IodineFurthermore, the neurotransmitters inyour brain need sulfur and B6 for optimalfunctioning. Eventually, Dr. Wahlsdesigned her own eating plan, based onthe nutrients she now knew she neededfor optimal mitochondrial-, myelin-, andneurotransmitter function, because whileyour body can create some nutrients,others must be provided through yourdiet.
  46. 46. A Paleo Diet Success StoryThe majority of Americans eat high amounts of processed foods, which are loadedwith high fructose corn syrup, grains, and harmful chemical additives of all kinds,such as MSG, and artificial sweeteners like aspartame. Unfortunately, this kind ofdiet is a near-foolproof prescription for chronic disease… Not only are you gettinglots of what you dont need, youre quite simply not getting enough real nutrients!While two-thirds of American adults are now either overweight or obese, manyif not most of them are also, simultaneously, malnourished.According to Dr. Wahls , less than half of all Americans get enough vitamin B6 andmagnesium in their diet. More than 70 percent do not get sufficient amounts ofiodine, and a whopping 80 percent do not get enough omega-3 fat from their diet. Incomparison, ancient peoples and natives around the world who have not significantlyaltered their diet over time, consume anywhere between two-fold to 10-fold theamount of todays recommended daily allowances (RDA) of nutrients!Dr. Wahls altered her diet to reflect the Paleo-style diet of the hunter-gatherersof old as follows:•3 cups daily (equal to one dinner plate, piled high) of green leaves, such as kale,which are high in vitamins B, A, C, K, and minerals•3 cups daily of sulfur-rich vegetables from the cabbage- and onion- families,mushrooms and asparagus•3 cups daily of brightly colored vegetables, fruits and/or berries, which are a goodsource of antioxidants•Wild fish for animal-based omega-3s•Grass-fed meat•Seaweed for iodine and selenium•Organ meats for vitamins, minerals and CoQ10She eliminated processed foods, grains, and starches (which includes potatoes andcorn). Amazingly, she began to notice significant improvement in just threemonths, and at the nine-month mark of her new diet, she was able to go on an18-mile bike ride! This is astounding when you consider that over the past sevenyears her condition had deteriorated to the point that she had to sit in a reclined zero-gravity chair and could only walk short distances using two canes.That is the power of nutrition!For more info:

Thus, if you are looking for a filter to remove fluoride, make sure it uses "reverse-osmosis" or "activated alumina" technology.
  53. 53. ChemotherapyWhat is the average cancer survivalsuccess rate?A. 50%B. 24%C. 5%
  54. 54. “The majority of the cancer patients in this country die because of chemotherapy, which does not cure breast, colon or lung cancer. This has been documented for over a decade and nevertheless doctors still utilize chemotherapy to fight these tumors,” said Dr. Allen Levin, MD, author of The Healing of Cancer.C. 5 %You may be surprised to learn that, despite its reputation as the go-to cancer treatment, chemotherapyhas an average 5-year survival success rate of just over 2 percent for all cancers, according to a studypublished in the journal Clinical Oncology. (Tracking cancer patients in remission stops after year 5, thus ifthis person dies of the disease anytime after year 5, they are still considered ―cured‖ according to cancerstatistics.)
  55. 55. Preventing Cancer  1. Reduce or eliminate your processed food, sugar and grain carbohydrateCheck all intake. Yes, this is even true for whole unprocessed organic grains, as they tend to rapidly break down and drive your insulin and leptin levels up,those that which is the last thing you need to have happening if you are seeking to resolve a cancer.apply 2. Control your fasting insulin and leptin levels. This is the end result, and can be easily monitored with the use of simple and relatively inexpensive blood tests. 3. Normalize your ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats by taking a high- quality krill or fish oil and reducing your intake of most processed vegetable oils. 4. Get regular exercise. One of the primary reasons exercise works is that it drives your insulin levels down. Controlling insulin levels is one of the most powerful ways to reduce your cancer risks. 5. Normalize your vitamin D levels by getting plenty of sunlight exposure and consider careful supplementation when this is not possible. If you take oral vitamin D and have a cancer, it would be very prudent to monitor your vitamin D blood levels regularly. 6. Get regular, good sleep. (continued)
  56. 56. Preventing Cancer  Eat according to your nutritional type. The potent anti-cancer effects of thisCheck all principle are very much underappreciated. When we treat cancer patients in our clinic this is one of the most powerful anti-cancer strategies we have.that applies 8. Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides, household chemical cleaners, synthetic air fresheners and air pollution. 9. Limit your exposure and provide protection for yourself from radiation produced by cell phones, cell phone towers, base stations and WiFi stations. 10. Avoid frying or charbroiling your food. Boil, poach or steam your foods instead. 11. Have a tool to permanently reprogram the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. It is likely that this factor may be more important than all the other physical ones listed here, so make sure this is addressed. One of the best approaches and my particular favorite tool, as you may know, is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). 12. Eat at least one-third of your food raw. (Dr. Mercola’s goal is 85% raw)
  57. 57. All are great preventative strategies to adopt.―Relatively simple risk reduction strategies can help you to VIRTUALLY ELIMINATE your cancerrisk, and radically improve your chances of recovering from cancer if you currently have it. Youwon’t read or hear much about these techniques elsewhere either, because they have not beenformally "proven" by conservative researchers. However, were you aware that 85 percent oftherapies currently recommended by conventional medicine have never been formally proveneither? That’s something to think about. ― Dr. Mercola
  58. 58. Intermission:A radical stance by Mike Adams ―I find it absolutely appalling if not downright ridiculous that the people in our country who are responsible for health dont understand the fundamentals of nutrition. That med schools dont teach nutrition is I think one of the strongest statements yet about the sad state of conventional medicine. These people need to be taught nutrition. It was Hippocrates himself who said, "Let thy food be thy medicine." And in fact, the history of medicine is steeped in the use of plants for health and healing. The very word pharmaceutical means "medicine from plants." And yet today, conventional medicine has not only ignored plants and nutrition, it has actively sought to discredit it. This is one reason why, in my mind, physicians have little or no credibility whatsoever when talking about health and disease prevention. They are, technically, ignorant. Dr. Andrew Weil, author of Spontaneous Healing and many other books on health and healing, even calls conventional doctors, "nutritionally illiterate." Medical schools have no credibility either, because they are basically conduits for teaching the use of drugs, pharmaceuticals, chemotherapy, and surgical procedures to an army of doctors who, in practice, are often little more than glorified drug dealers. So if we are going to adopt nutritional strategies and actually prevent disease in the United States, were going to have to start teaching our doctors about foods. This crucial knowledge has been ignored thanks to the dominance of this highly corrupt industry we now call "conventional medicine."

  59. 59. Bio on Mike Adams Mike Adams is no stranger to traditional Western medicine. The son of a Pfizer contractor and a clinical trial tester for some of Americas biggest pharmaceutical companies, Mike grew up using prescribed pharmaceuticals, trusting doctors and believing what the FDA reported was safe and in the best interests of the country. All that would change when Mike was faced with his own personal health emergency, and the pillars of medicine he once trusted came crumbling down before him. Mike began his mission as the Health Ranger as a response to his own failing health. At the age of 30, he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, a disease brought on by poor diet and severe lack of exercise. As a high-powered software executive, extreme levels of stress and cholesterol, depression and chronic back pain were common features of Mikes past. Searching for answers to his health woes, Mike dove into research; he devoured thousands of books on nutrition, pharmaceutical drugs, wellness programs, the politics of food - anything he could find. Mike has now made it his life mission to share the most remarkable discovery he made on his quest: the vast majority of all diseases can be easily prevented and even cured without drugs or surgery. And that’s exactly what Mike did. He cured himself of diabetes in a matter of months and transformed himself into the picture of perfect health in mind, body and spirit.
  60. 60. Bio on Mike Adams Emboldened by his own experience of health transformation, Mike continues to explore and share the truths of natrual nutrition, disease, health and healing. Over the last several years, he has spent more than 10,000 hours studying the true causes of disease vs. health. With the help of his extensive private research library, Mike Adams has authored more than 1,600 articles on health, interviewed todays greatest pioneers in alternative medicine, and completed dozens of books and special reports on the subject. Carrying the torch Since then, Mike has founded, an online news source covering all areas of personal and planetary wellness from nutrition to renewable energy. Here, he’s written thousands of articles and built a following of over 800,000 people across the globe. Mike has also founded a non-profit organization, The Consumer Wellness Center, an online retail center, Better Life Goods, and the popular publishing company, Truth Publishing. Mike speaks frequently at national and local gatherings like the Amazon Herb Summit and the Raw Foods Challenge in Los Angeles. Speaking from personal experience and extensive research, Mike has touched the hearts and changed the lives of thousands of people around the world. Adams is a raw foods enthusiast, an organic gardener, and a holistic nutritionist. He eats no processed foods, dairy, sugar, meat from mammals or food products containing additives such as MSG. Adams has been called "the best health and natural products writer on the scene today" and has openly recommended hundreds of health and green living products without any compensation

  63. 63. True or False?The American Cancer Society has admitted that the benefits ofbreast cancer screening have been overstated.
  64. 64. True…but they continue to push the idea that mammograms save livesAside from unneeded treatments that may result from improper diagnoses, women screenedfor breast cancer using mammography undergo tremendous exposure to ionizing radiationevery time they are screened. Exposure to this radiation is often implicated in causing thevery malignant cancers that are meant to be detected. Continual exposure to excessivelevels of radiation due to receiving annual mammograms greatly increases a womans risk ofdeveloping breast cancer.Mammograms have about a 70 percent failure rate, routinely detecting non-existent tumors.Consequently, many women undergo invasive biopsies needlessly.Women with a continued interest in breast cancer screening would do well to choosethermography rather than mammography. Thermography utilizes digital infrared imaging, asafe detection method that analyzes body heat levels in and around the breasts. By analyzingblood vessel circulation and metabolic changes that typically accompany the onset oftumorous growths, thermography is arguably the most effective, accurate, and safest breastcancer detection method.

  72. 72. Right or Wrong?Media reports state that the flu vaccine is60 percent effective. Are they right orwrong?
  73. 73. WRONG A new study revealed that the flu vaccine prevents type A or type B influenza in only 1.5 out of every 100 vaccinated adults … but the media is reporting this to mean ―60 percent effective‖ -- the difference is due to a semantic sleight-of-hand: confusing the meaning of relative vs. absolute risk reduction Media reports that the flu vaccine is 60 percent effective does not mean that 60 out of 100 people who get the flu shot will be protected against influenza; separate research shows 100 people must be vaccinated to prevent one case of type A or type B influenza. Vaccine-acquired immunity is temporary, which is why even though the influenza viruses included in this season’s flu vaccine are the same viruses that were selected for the 2010-2011 influenza vaccine, the CDC is still recommending you get vaccinated again, even if you got the vaccine last year. The immunity you get by recovering from influenza naturally is qualitatively superior and longer lasting. Lifestyle changes will generally be far more effective at preventing type A or type B influenza or other types of flu-like respiratory illnesses than the flu vaccine. For more informaiton: regarding-flu-vaccine.aspx

  77. 77. TrueModern milk  Milk straight from the cow containsdoes not do cream, which rises to the top.a body good. Homogenization is a process that breaks up the fat globules and evenly distributes them throughout the milk so that they do not rise. This process unnaturally increases the surface area of fat exposing it to air, in which oxidation occurs and increases the susceptibility to spoilage. Homogenization has been linked to heart disease and atherosclerosis.
  78. 78. Pasteurization – True or FalseWe have all been led to believe that milk is a wonderfulsource of calcium, when in fact, pasteurization makes calciumand other minerals less available. Complete destruction ofphosphatase is one method of testing to see if milk has beenadequately pasteurized. Phosphatase is essential for theabsorption of calcium.
  79. 79. True  Pasteurization is a process of heat treating milk to kill bacteria. Although Louis Pasteur developed this technique for preserving beer and wine, he was not responsible forModern Milk applying it to milk. That was done at the end of the 1800s as a temporary solution until filthy urban dairies could find a way to produce cleaner milk. But instead of cleaning upis not safe. milk production, dairies used pasteurization as a way to cover up dirty milk. As milk became more mass produced, pasteurization became necessary for large dairies to increase their profits. So the public then had to be convinced that pasteurized milk was safer than raw milk. Soon raw milk consumption was blamed for all sorts of diseases and outbreaks until the public was finally convinced that pasteurized milk was superior to milk in its natural state.  Today if you mention raw milk, many people gasp and utter ridiculous statements like, "You can die from drinking raw milk!" But the truth is that there are far more risks from drinking pasteurized milk than unpasteurized milk. Raw milk naturally contains healthy bacteria that inhibit the growth of undesirable and dangerous organisms. Without these friendly bacteria, pasteurized milk is more susceptible to contamination. Furthermore, modern equipment, such as milking machines, stainless steel tanks and refrigerated trucks, make it entirely possible to bring clean, raw milk to the market anywhere in the US.  Not only does pasteurization kill the friendly bacteria, it also greatly diminishes the nutrient content of the milk. Pasteurized milk has up to a 66 percent loss of vitamins A, D and E. Vitamin C loss usually exceeds 50 percent. Heat affects water soluble vitamins and can make them 38 percent to 80 percent less effective. Vitamins B6 and B12 are completely destroyed during pasteurization. Pasteurization also destroys beneficial enzymes, antibodies and hormones. Pasteurization destroys lipase (an enzyme that breaks down fat), which impairs fat metabolism and the ability to properly absorb fat soluble vitamins A and D. (The dairy industry is aware of the diminished vitamin D content in commercial milk, so they fortify it with a form of this vitamin.)

  93. 93. B. Too little salt doing harm… …researchers found that too little salt is doing harm instead of good. Those who consumed between 4,000 and 6,000 milligrams of sodium per day--more than double the current recommendations--were at the least risk for heart disease and stroke. People who ate a diet lower in salt didnt experience less risk, but more. Researchers found that people who consume 2,000 to 3,000 mg of sodium per day were actually 20 percent more likely to experience death or hospitalization related to heart conditions, compared to those consuming between 4,000 and 6,000 mg daily. But dont take this as advice that salt intake should be completely unlimited. Moderation appears to be key because consuming too much salt puts you at even higher risk. Those who consumed more than 8,000 mg of sodium per day were 50 to 70 percent more likely to have a stroke or heart attack, or to be hospitalized or die from heart disease. Results from this study indicate that people who already consume a moderate amount of sodium do not benefit from lowering their salt intake. In fact, it may even harm them. Dr. Martin ODonnell, lead author of the study and associate clinical professor of medicine at McMaster University, says, "When you take people at more moderate intake levels, there is emerging uncertainty as to whether there are long-term benefits of reducing sodium intake further." The new report, published in this weeks issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, contradicts what many of us have been told about salt. The research team involved urges officials to recommend a safer range of sodium intake rather than to set a single rigid limit. Even better, of course, would be a recommendation to choose a natural salt like sea salt instead of highly refined commercial salt, which often contains harmful additives and lacks a balanced (Unrefined sea salt – try REAL SALT brand that is unrefined and has more than 60 naturally occurring trace minerals.

  114. 114. TrueWhen men with advanced prostate cancer are treated with hormone therapy, thecancer usually stops growing for a year, maybe two. But then the disease oftenbegins to grow again, and mainstream doctors have few if any options left to try tohelp.So why did the hormone treatment work for a while and then stop? According tofindings recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy ofSciences, the explanation may be unexpectedly simple: the very drugs given tomen to fight their prostate cancer actually spur some cancer cells to grow.The new study, headed by Chawnshang Chang, PhD, director of the GeorgeWhipple Laboratory for Cancer Research at the University of Rochester MedicalCenter, and colleagues, suggests the androgen receptor, through which malehormones like testosterone work, turns out to be far more versatile than scientistsrealized. Specifically, a common form of hormone therapy for prostate cancerworks by blocking the androgen receptor. And Dr. Chang’s team found that it wastrue that depriving the male body of testosterone this way can at times stop cancerin the short term by preventing some cells in the prostate from growing. But,unfortunately, they also discovered that blocking the receptor can actually cause arevving up of other prostate cell growth and can lead to a proliferation of cancer
