me start out by stating that the US Government
is responsible for knowingly exposing virtually all of
the US population to the SIMIAN VIRUS 40, and it
appears in 61 percent of all cancer patients. More
recent research shows long lasting genetic effects.
Your health is your most important asset. When equipment goes down, that's when you really read the Service Manual. DON'T WAIT FOR YOUR HEALTH TO GIVE OUT BEFORE YOU EXAMINE YOUR OWN LIFESTYLE AND WHAT YOU EAT.
I am not a doctor, so DO NOT construe this as medical advice. I can only tell you what I have learned that works for me, and give you food for thought.
After BBC broke the news on a 2x increase of suicides in power plant workers exposed to high magnetic fields, I would be cautious of reading a paper with my chair propped up against a 3-phase transformer for a 50kw transmitter. The article also brings up an association with depression and decreased Melatonin and Seratonin levels.
Keep up with Consumer Groups that are looking out for your health.
Exercise is one of the most
important thing in life.
Drink more than half
gallon of water a
day! Stay away from the "purified" stuff if you can. Your
car battery and steam iron do not need the Calcium, Magnesium and other minerals found in
water, but your body does. I've heard that a lack of fluids can even cause
an irregular heart
beat. You regularly change the oil in your car, so why pump sludge through your arteries?
WATER" is HYPE. "VITAMIN
O" is salt water, sold for up to $65.00 an ounce. The FTC
took it's HYPEsters to court!
If your job requires you to sit for a
long period of time, the most important thing you can do is get up and walk
around every half hour or so. If you've been sitting for a long time,
massage your "hindquarters" and the
back of your thighs. All of us form small clots when we sit because we
blood flow. The small clots formed are usually broken down by the
body, before they can cause serious damage. Some however, get lodged in the lungs, brain (stroke), or
elsewhere. It is not enough to exercise 30 minutes a day if you sit
for hours at a time! You
can also drink 100% PURPLE Grape Juice! CAUTION: Check with your doctor first if you are taking blood thinners or any other drugs.
While Vitamin D can PREVENT
COLON CANCER. Aspirin is not only good for your heart, but reduces
your chance for various cancers, including genetically pre-disposed
families, by 35%.

Vitamins and minerals are NOT
SUBSTITUTES for food; they SUPPLEMENT it. NOTE (and this is only
MY belief): Don't rely on foods cooked in a microwave oven for full nutrition ! !
! Enzymes, Vitamins, and other Nutrients in foods are broken down under high
temperatures, so what do you have left??? You still have the minerals
and some vitamins, but a mother who breast-feeds her child is told
NOT to microwave her stored frozen milk, because it breaks down the
enzymes. Think about it ! Maybe those old cauldrons and
crock-pots were really the best way to cook. Avoid overcooking and
overheating your food and you will avoid changing its chemical structure and
nutritional value. You are what you eat.
Fiber is a must. You should be getting
24 grams per day, but most people are lucky to get less than half of that. Take a close look at the nutrition labels on the
foods you eat. Lack of fiber promotes Colon Cancer, so I've been told
(my own mother recently died from it). Eat whole grain breads, plenty of fruit,
and lots of veggies. The best book I have found is by Dr. Barry Sears,
"ENTER THE ZONE". I use it as a guide, but not as a
There are 10
foods that you should eat.
As an average ACTIVE person, I should get
about 60 grams of protein per day. I should keep my Carbohydrate
intake between 100 to 200 grams per day, and my total fat intake should
ideally not exceed 45 grams.
I DO eat FREE RANGING beef sparingly because it contains CLA, a potent anticarcinogenic. My Saturated fat intake should not exceed 20 grams per day. I try to eat smaller meals, usually 4 or
5 per day, but I don't hesitate to "pig out" at my favorite restaurant.
I try to keep my portion of meats and fish no larger than the size of the
palm of my hand, eat plenty of different colored vegetables, and go easy on
the breads, buns, gravy, salad dressing, and butter. (Did you know a Caesar
Salad can have in excess of 60 grams of fat?)
I use butter and AVOID
HYDROGENATED FOODS, especially margarine, french fries, and
hydrogenated peanut butter (which has the peanut oil removed, and
hydrogenated Canola Oil added for that "creamy smooth" texture).
is just a new name for HYDROGENATED OILS
Know the dangers of TRANS FATTY
New England Journal of Medicine -- June 24, 1999 -- Vol. 340, No. 25
Erin recently showed me some articles
warning about the DANGERS
OF CANOLA OIL.
Canola Oil is listed as both a food and a PESTICIDE with the EPA. Despite
all these warnings, the debate about Canola Oil is not finished.....
but to be on the safe side, I'll stick with Olive Oil for the time
I eat Oatmeal at least 3 times a week
(but avoid "Quick" or "Instant" Oatmeal). Oats
provide GLA (Gamma Linolenic
Acid). GLA is necessary throughout life, but the human body
cannot produce GLA
for the first several months of life.
That's why breast-fed babies are healthier, leaner, and have a head start on
Eat Salmon at least twice a
week. The Omega-3 Fatty Acids
combine with the GLA in
the Oatmeal, and from what I've learned and felt, is necessary for good
health under stress, and proper GH release, which decreases as you get
STAY AWAY FROM REGULAR USE OF DHEA
(just my opinion). This is a Hormone..... Don't try to fool
Mother Nature. USA
WEEKEND: Eat Smart by Jean Carper, 2/15/98
("DHEA can trigger heart palpitations and irregular heartbeats --
possibly even a heart attack, warns Los Angeles physician Ray Sahelian,
author of DHEA: A Practical Guide.)
AVOID SWEETS, SODA, AND OTHER SIMPLE
WITHIN 3 HOURS OF GOING TO SLEEP. Your body releases GH (Growth
Hormone) after you go to sleep, but releases less if insulin is present. GH directly affects
your immune system.
Don't cheat your body out of
sleep. No project is more important than your life.
Vitamins and Minerals,
for good health, but
an excess can be detrimental. A good Vitamin-Mineral formula for me is a product by
"SOLARAY" called "SPECTRO". If you are a male, and
take in enough iron through foods, the "IRON FREE" version is recommended, because
additional iron supposedly results in arterial plaque in men. Women
need the additional iron.
Spectro TM Multi-Vita-Min IRON FREE is a favorite. "BABY ME NOW" is a Pre-Natal vitamin that is quite complete for both women and men.
FOLIC ACID is highly recommended
to reduce fat lipids in the blood, called TRIGLYCERIDES. Many in the
health field say that Triglycerides are a more important risk factor than
cholesterol. I take 800 mcg of FOLIC ACID per day, in addition to what I get in the
"SPECTRO" Vitamin-Mineral formula.
Vitamins A, E, and C act
synergistically, that is, when they are used together, they are much more
potent than their individual sum. Vitamins A, E, and C are the most
well known FREE RADICAL
Quenchers. FREE RADICALS can also be a source of health food store
hype, so please read about
FREE RADICALS from GRAY Cancer Labs. BE INFORMED FROM NEUTRAL SOURCES - DO YOUR OWN
RESEARCH. For those who have had heart attacks, or to help prevent
them, here is a good article from The
National Institute Of Health
I take Supplementary Vitamin C a couple of times a day, but I take it in a 500 mg CHEWABLE tablet form called "Orange Juce" by "NATURE'S PLUS" Why burn a hole in your stomach by taking this ACID in a pill form without eating a meal? I've also heard the body won't absorb more than 250 mg of Vitamin C at one time. Just because you take a 500 mg dose doesn't mean your body can use 100% of it. If your body absorbs 50% of it, you're in the ball-park.
Many Vitamins are ACIDS, so take
them in the middle of a meal.
Now we come to one of the most
important recent breakthroughs. This is a class of drugs known
NSAIDs (Non Steroidal
Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). As medical science traces back the causes of diseases, and the breakdown of the body and its functions, one thing
stands out above all others: inflammation. Inflammation is a by-product of
natural body functions, including the immune system. Remember that swelling
when that #&!!#@ wrench slipped?
Enter a product that is 100% Natural, called ZYFLAMEND. The more we find out about medical science and COX-2 Inhibitors, the more we have to say that Grandmother was right. Spices like Turmeric (first prescribed by Hippocrates), Basil, Rosemary, Oregano, et. have been found to have fantastic anti - inflammatory properties, great for arthritis and pain, supposedly preventing and/or relieving even migraine headaches, replacing Aspirin, extending the quality of life, with claims as an aid in Alzheimer's, Colon and Lung Cancer, et.
I now take this faithfully, but for a totally different and unexpected reason:
For me it has virtually stopped the occasional PVCs that comes along with MVP (Mitrol Valve Prolapse). SURPRISED? I know I was. It may just be a fluke with me, but the darned stuff works for me, and it's not even a prescription drug! It usually sells for around $25, but I buy it on the internet for $13.95 ZYFLAMEND can be found here Please be aware of JAMA warnings on some COX-2 Inhibitors.
Another supplement is
CONDROITIN". This stuff is now widely known for it's proven
ability to retard and / or prevent deterioration of cartilage in joints.
I started taking this before it became a fad, because I have played PaddleBall on
a concrete surface since 1985. I have seen kids in their teens with knee braces,
yet I have had no problems, and I used to play 2-3 hrs per day. I'll
leave the search for the best price to you. You may want to look into
a formula that also contains MSM
, but I would personally hesitate to take 2-6 grams per day that some
Dental Hygiene is
EXTREMELY important. I've heard some Pharos died very young because of Gum
Disease and Rotting Teeth. See your dental hygienist regularly.
GIVE YOUR BRAIN A
REST. After a hectic day at work, think about taking a quiet
walk, instead of flooding your body with adrenalin, caused by watching "COPS"
A Cure for Alzheimer's
Disease may be around the corner. Researchers at University of
California, San Diego, will be starting trials using Gene Therapy on humans
in 2001. Monkey Brains have been injected with NGF (Nerve Growth
Factor) and results are very promising. "Side Effects" also include a
reversal of aging in the brain. More information about Alzheimer's is
available at http://www.alz.org/
Many clinical trials
are going on for a variety of ailments (including cancer), but are not
generally known to the public. They are listed at http://clinicaltrials.gov/
Please keep in mind that what works for me may not work for you, and in no way should this be taken as medical advice. See a doctor before you try anything you are not sure of.
Many Foods, Herbs, and Spices are Natural Blood Thinners or do not work well with other drugs. A friend reported that the widely touted "CO Q10" inhibited her prescribed Beta-Blocker Medication. I recently read that while aspirin and red wine reduce blood platelet clotting 45%, a glass of dark grape juice reduces platelet clotting by 70%. Don't settle for a bottle of "Grape Juice" that contains "10% REAL JUICE". Buy 100% Grape Juice. You wouldn't feed your car "10% REAL GAS".
Do your homework and determine interactions between foods, supplements, and prescription drugs.

I love playing Paddleball, Tennis, Cycling, and Dancing. My purpose in sharing this information with you is for YOU to become more aware of YOU, not your JOB. My feeling is that living to 100 is no good if you've spent your latter years in pain and diminished brain and motor function. It's never too late to start life anew.
Enjoy your life, and God Bless.
