Fluoride on Trial

Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), a group of non-profits and individuals petitioned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2016 to end the addition of fluoridation chemicals into drinking water due to fluoride’s neurotoxicity. The EPA rejected the petition. In response, the groups sued the EPA in Federal Court.  For the first time since TSCA was enacted in 1976, plaintiffs were able to have a trial in Federal Court to try and stop the official policy of the U.S. government from the continued recommendation for the use of a toxic substance (fluoride) in the U.S. water supply. The trial was held in June 2020 and the judge has yet to make his decision. The next status hearing will be on August 26, 2021. 

 

Fluoride is a neurotoxin?  Don’t we need it to reduce tooth decay?  Isn’t that why it was added to the water supply in the 1950’s and why it is in toothpaste?  It turns out that recent analysis of data between 1970-2010 by the W.H.O., showed that countries that did not fluoridate their water had the same drop in dental caries on children as the countries that did fluoridate their water.

Underestimated: An Autism Miracle

The statistics vary slightly depending on the study but about one in fifty births in the U.S. today will have an autistic diagnosis by the time the child is 8 years old.  That adds up to about seven million people with autism in this country.  Up to 40 percent of the children with autism spectrum disorders remain minimally speaking even after years of interventions.  That is nearly three million people! 

 

For parents of autistic children along with their caregivers it is a daily struggle to communicate with these kids and adults.  Because of this, parents are at a loss in their ability to ascertain the needs of their children, and parents, teachers, and caregivers are almost universally unaware of the cognitive ability of the child.  For most families with children categorized as severely autistic or profoundly autistic the fear of their child needing lifetime assistance is heartbreaking, exhausting and requires financial planning that hangs over them as they themselves get older. 

 

Most non-speaking autistic kids receive care from specialists in speech and behavior therapy and most improve to some degree.  However, their methods are weighted in the belief that there is a cognitive deficit in the brains of autistics with the emphasis of treatment to fix the speech patterns.  Elizabeth Vosseller SLP (speech language pathologist) broke with the accepted protocols and assumed that most autistic people were cognitively normal but were simply experiencing an inability to verbalize their thoughts because ...      more >

The Healing Power of Castor Oil
Castor bean oil from the castor bean has a long history of use for a variety of ailments.  Castor bean seeds were found in Egyptian tombs, and the use of the oil has been recorded not only in Egypt, but also China, Africa, Persia, Greece, Rome, Southern Europe, and the Americas.  The oil being applied to the skin with a flannel cloth and heat was re-popularized most recently by Edgar Cayce a 20th century Sunday School teacher who was also known as “the sleeping prophet”.  From the time he was a young boy, Cayce would have clairvoyant experiences.  Later in life he would enter a trance – comparable to sleeping but still able to answer questions, where he would give health readings for people desperate for help.  Cayce would not remember his recommendations when he came out of his trance, but they often included the use of castor oil packs to the body.  Cayce who died in 1945, lived long enough to have some of his readings recorded by film and over 14,000 of his readings are preserved by the A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment) headquarters in Virginia Beach. 

 

Ironically, a plant that seems to have so much healing potential contains one of the deadliest poisons known, a protein called ricin.  Consuming just one or two beans could kill you. However, ricin is not in the oil!  The healing part is the fat called Ricinoleic acid

Getting a Grip on High Blood Pressure

Nearly half the adults in the United States (about 45%, or 108 million) have hypertension (high blood pressure).  High Blood Pressure (HBP) is defined where the pressure reading is over 130 for the systolic and over 80 for the diastolic pressure.  Of those about 30 million take medication for this condition.  The systolic or top number measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart beats, and the diastolic or bottom number measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart rests.  The higher your blood pressure levels, the more risk you have for other health problems such as kidney problems, eye problems, heart attack, heart disease, or stroke.  It could cause memory loss, blurred vision, libido issues in both men and women, and result in the excess loss of calcium and cause weaker bones. High blood pressure can damage arteries by making them less elastic, which decreases blood flow and oxygen to your heart and leads to heart disease.  High blood pressure is often called the “silent killer” because it usually has no warning signs or symptoms, and many people do not know they have it.  Therefore, periodic checks for your blood pressure are important.

 

The natural recommendations for reducing high blood pressure are to decrease alcohol, salt, and smoking, eating healthy foods and increasing physical activity and losing weight if necessary.  Taking time to relax or ...

Beyond Impossible

Perhaps you have noticed in the supermarket two new plant-based meat alternatives.  One, Beyond Meat and the other, Impossible Burger.  Burger King now offers an “Impossible Whopper”, and McDonalds has tested a Beyond Meat burger in Canadian markets.  KFC has experimented with a Beyond fried chicken too.  Its popularity is growing because unlike traditional vegetarian burgers, these products taste very much like meat. I am certain you will be seeing it offered at many other restaurants soon. 

 

The additional appeals are that these products will result in a reduction in the environmental stressors in raising beef and chickens, and appeal to people with a conscious awareness about the harvesting of those animals.  A video with a spokesperson for Impossible Burger claims that this alternative meat source will result in 75% less water usage and generate 87% less greenhouse gases from the elimination of methane released from cows and require 95% less land compared to the production of equal amounts of conventional ground beef from cows all while providing adequate protein for us.  That sounds great but is this true?

 

Nutritional Comparisons

Here is a comparison between the Impossible Burger and Beyond Burger:

 

The Beyond Meat burger is soy free and gluten free (without a bun).  The Impossible burger is not. However, the other ingredients are basically equal to the Impossible Burger in terms of protein, fat, fiber, and sodium.

 

 

The actual ingredients in each break down more specifically in this diagram.

 

If we look deeper at some of the ingredients in both we see wheat and soy as the main protein in the Impossible Burger and pea protein isolate as the main protein in the Beyond Burger.  Soy is GMO (genetically modified) ....
