Heart Disease
Although heart disease takes many forms, we are concerned here with
ischemic heart disease (IHD) in its various guises.
Ischemia (lack of oxygen due to low blood flow), causes many problems, from angina to
Myocardial Infarction (MI, Heart Attack) and strokes to gangrene. What is clear is that none of
these consequences are pleasant and most are life-threatening.
All cells in our body require oxygen and glucose to survive. When the supply of these vital
nutrients is cut off (or severely reduced, so that the cell can't function properly), two things
happen. First of all, the cell goes into "survival mode", reducing its activities so that it
conserves what little oxygen and glucose it has. Some cells may be able to last longer than
others in this mode. However, few, if any cells will be able to carry out their normal functions
under these conditions and most will start to malfunction.

Once the internal stores of oxygen and glucose are used up, the cell can no longer survive and
dies (called necrosis). This may not be too bad if we are talking about a hair follicle, but can be
catstrophic if we are talking about, for example myocardial (or heart muscle) cells, as is the
case with ischemic heart disease.
What is worse is that, these problems rarely affect single cells, they usually affect whole groups
of cells, or even whole organs. Clearly, the bigger the area afected, the worse the
consequences are likely to be. If the heart disease is severe enough to affect the whole heart,
total necrosis results and the consequence is a massive heart attack, which is invariably fatal.
So what causes heart disease and what can we do about it?
Perhaps one of the biggest scandals of the twentieth century is the way we have been led to
believe that cholesterol causes heart disease. This fabrication, created by the propaganda
machines of the food oil industry, was put together in the 1940's and 50's, when hydrogenation
of vegetable oils was discovered and enabled the creation of butter replacements.

Hydrogenated fats
A market had to be found for these new-fangle margarines, and sothe public and the medical
fraternity alike were fed a bunkum story that saturated fat led to clogged arteries and therefore
heart disease. The fact that we had been eating saturated fat (from butter, cheese, eggs and
meat) for centuries, even milennia WITHOUT heart disease (which only appeared when
margerines were introduced!) was deemed irrelevant and after the AHA, everyone else jumped
on the bandwagon that has careered out of control for decades.

The truth is that saturated fat PROTECTS against heart disease, and artificial, chemically
changed fats such as margerines are a leading CAUSE of heart disease. Unfortunatel, the
researchers who have proved this time and time again are not only starved of research funding
(by "health" organizations largely supported by the food oil industry), they are also prevented
from publishing their results in the "prestigious" journals controlled by the same bodies!
Then
So what is the real cause of heart disease?
Sunburn
As we explain on our page about cholesterol and heart disease, cholesterol is not the CAUSE of
heart disease, it is merely the SIGN of a bigger problem, namely nutritional deficiency,
specifically of vitamin C.

Hydrogenated fats
Food Additives
Weight Management
What's that? Heart disease can't be caused by food, you say? Then why believe it is caused by
cholesterol?
Simply put, we do not take in enough vitamin C these days to maintain our artery walls (vitamin
C is the main component of collagen, from which arteries are constructed). To stop us from
bleeding to death, the continual damage being done to our artery cells means they have to be
repaired. However, if we can't make collagen (because we don't have enough vitamin C), we
can't repair the holes.
Enter cholesterol. Cholesterol acts as the body's "band-aid", repairing the holes in the artery
wall by sticking to the hole and blocking it. It is when this happens repeatedly that cholesterol
build up in the artery, blocking it and leading to heart disease.
But saying that cholesterol causes heart disease is like saying liver spots cause old age - it is
merely a sign that something else is going on!
So what about margerines? How are they involved?
Well, the trans-fats that are created when vegetable oils are hydrogenated are not like normal
fats. Normal, CIS-fats are a curved molecule, which means that one side is "open" for the
binding of enzymes required for many cell functions. However, due to their structure, trans-fats
are flat, straight molecules, that the enzyme can't bind to.
Normally, this might not be such a bad thing, but when these fats are taken up by cells, such as
the artery cells, and used in the cell-wall structure, this means that these cells can't respond to
the enzymes they normally would, as the enzymes can't bind to them - this is a VERY bad
situation and causes all sorts of cell dysfunction.
In addition to this, the trans fats, instead of being supple and strong, are brittle and weak. this
means that where cells have used these fats in their structure, the cells are weak and can easily
be pushed aside, ruptured or stetched, like a balloon.

heart disease. What is hear disease, how to avoid ischemic heart disease
When this happens in an artery cell, and it is stretched by the high-pressure blood flowing in the
artery, the cell stretches and eventually ruptures, leading to yet-more of the damage that
cholesterol must repair, and eventually various forms of heart disease.
It is for this simple reason that margerines are known to be directly related to heart disease,
and why everyone, but especially those with heart disease should AVOID MARGERINE AND
ALL HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS.

Omega-3 Fatty Acid
Health Information
Eicosapentenoic acid (EPA), is an Omega-3 fatty acid, and is found in
large amounts in brain nerve and is also the main component used to
manufacture hormone-like Series 3 eicosanoids (formerly called ‘series 3 prostaglandins’). These Natural Health
compounds are extremely important to correct immune system function and cannot be made if
insufficient EPA is avaliable.
Glycemic index
Whilst the Omega-6 fatty acids are abundant in all sorts of vegetable oils and meats, the omegaNutritional supplements
3's (including EPA) are much harder to come by. They can be found in oily fish (salmon,
mackerel, trout) as well as some seeds and nuts, including walnuts, flax seeds and pumpkin
Vitamins & Minerals
seeds. Unfortunately, however, most of us are not including enough of these items in our diet if we are including any at all!
A recent study discovered that, in the USA, 25% of adults tested had so little Omega-3 fatty
acid in their blood that it was undetectable, i.e. there was none present.
What is worse is that lack of these fatty acids in your blood strongly suggests that you are
eating the wrong kind of fats, as well as ommitting the right ones.
What can you do about it?
Firstly, you can try to add into your diet the foods that contain EPA, listed above, to which can
be added grass-fed beef (grain-fed beef has NO omega-3 content). In doing this, bear in mind
that some Governments, such as the UK are now recommending that you eat no more than
200g of sea-fish a week, due to the levels of toxins such as dioxin and mercury in fish,
especially fish livers, where toxins concentrate.

Secondly, and this goes for most people, you should add a high-quality EPA supplement to your
diet. Be sure that the fish oil used to produce it is from sources that filter out all the toxins
(we only know of one manufacturer that uses this expensive process, but charges no more for
their oil than others), is PURE Omega-3 and is not diluted with other oils, e.g. vegetable
oils.

Glycemic index. Role of GI and glycemic index of foods
Glycemic Index - preventing obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
The glycemic index (GI) of carbohydrates compares their ability to release
glucose into the blood (and therefore stimulate insulin secretion) with that
of an equivalent weight of pure glucose (glycemic index 100).
All carbohydrates increase blood sugar levels (and so have a glycemic index) and therefore
cause insulin to be released from the pancreas in order to control the amount of glucose in the
blood. The more glucose that has been made available in the blood, the more insulin is released
to control it. The relative effciency with which carbohydrates do this is known as the glycemic
index.
Health Information
Natural Health
Glycemic index
Nutritional supplements
Vitamins & Minerals
The importance of the glycemic index is that it predicts how much insulin will be released and
therefore, how the body will respond. For example metabolise fat (use it for fuel - low glycemic Womens health
index) or store excess energy as fat (high glycemic index).
Cholesterol

cholesterol
Firstly, the presence of insulin (high glycemic index) instructs the liver that energy requirements
- High cholesterol diet
are more than being met by current food intake, so the breakdown of fat to provide energy from
- Healthy cholesterol
body stores is unnecessary. Therefore, insulin (and so high glycemic index) stops the
levels
body from burning fat for energy.
This happens in two ways.
Secondly, and at the same time, excess sugar in the blood is quickly targeted to be stored for
later energy requirements and is converted to fat. So, insulin ( and high glycemic index)
also causes the body to store more fat.
Heart Disease
If the blood sugar level remains high, i.e. with really high glycemic index foods, more
insulin is released in an effort to reduce it.
Cancers
From these two very simple rules, it should be easy to see that any high glycemic index food
that causes sudden increases in blood sugar and therefore massive release of insulin is likely to
lead to increased fat production and storage.

*the Glycemic index of Maltose is actually higher than that of glucose. i.e. malt and it's products
(like beer) actually stimulate more insulin release than pure sugar!
What is clear from this table is that different varieties of similar foods have different effects. For
example, boiled potatoes have a lower Glycemic index than baked potatoes and wholewheat
varieties of bread and pasta are much better than their white counterparts. This effect on
glycemic index is explained below.
The effect of eating high glycemic index foods consistently is to lead to constantly high insulin
levels. In this situation, the body becomes accustomed to these high insulin levels and starts to
respond to them less effectively over time. As high glycemic index foods are eaten further, this
progresses, more and more insulin is required to have the same effect on the tissues. This
phenomenon is known as insulin resistance, and is the first step towards diabetes.
The glycemic index situation is made worse if the body has insufficient chromium. Chromium

Glycemic index. Role of GI and glycemic index of foods
helps insulin to exert its effect on the tissues, encouraging sugar uptake and thereby reducing
blood sugar. In the absence of chromium, insulin is much less effective, sugar levels stay
high and MORE insulin is secreted in an effort to control them
The Good News
Thankfully, it is not all bad news. Whilst It is best to avoid foods with a high glycemic index,
they often have direct alternatives with a moderate or even low glycemic index. This is because
the insulin-stimulating effect of carbohydrates is greatly reduced in the presence of fibre, as
found in some fruits and the wheatgerm present in whole wheat. This moderates the insulin
response, spreading out the absorption of carbohydrate over a prolonged timespan and so
reduces the amount of insulin released (lower glycemic index.
In addition, the use of chromium supplements makes insulin's job easier, helping reduce blood
glucose (and therefore insulin) to normal levels.
In this way, the effect of brown rice and wholewheat alternatives to white flour products is much
lower, and therefore much less detrimental to health. This is why it is best to ALWAYS use
wholewheat / wholegrain versions of these foods, with a lower glycemic index.
Glycemic Index, Insulin resistance and diabetes.
Whilst diabetes is discussed elsewhere on this site, it is worth touching here on the role of
insulin resistance in the development of the disease.
Diabetes is the inability of the body to produce enough insulin to control blood sugar. As a
consequence, those who suffer from diabetes suffer from a number of problems related to the
massive spikes of sugar immediately following a meal and subsequent troughs in between
meals, which, if unchecked can lead very quickly to coma and death.
It has long been known that frank diabetes is often, indeed usually preceded by a period of
insulin resistance, in which, as described above, more and more insulin is released with each
subsequent dose of high glycemic index carbohydrate in order to overcome the increasing
insensitivity of the tissues to insulin's "demands".
Eventually, the body reaches a stage where, no matter how much insulin is produced, the
tissues no longer respond and blood sugar remains unchecked. In such a situation, the pancreas
can "give up" completely, and all insulin secretion may stop. Whether this happens or not,
diabetes is the result, and huge doses of insulin are required to be injected to overcome the
problem, regardless of glycemic index. Needless to say, the high insulin levels mean that many
diabetics are overweight. This adds further stress to the system.
Prior to this "end stage" diabetes, there is much to be gained from limiting the intake of high
(and even medium) Glycemic index foods (not just sugar, as advised by medicine) and taking an

But is "SARS" new? Is it "dangeous"? Is it even a virus? And,
perhaps most importantly, is it an "epidemic"?
Firstly. let us consider what and "epidemic" really is. To be an
epidemic, a disease should affect over 120 people per head of
population. Let's compare that to "SARS".
How many did "SARS" affect - 1/50? 1/100? 1/200? 1/500?

HIV AIDS. Truth about AIDS, AIDS treatment and recovery from AIDS
HIV AIDS
Health Information
No-one can have escaped the controversy
surrounding the recent decision by South
Africa to provide anti-retroviral drugs to the massive number of HIV Natural Health
AIDS sufferers in that country. Many will consider this to be a
victory for the HIV AIDS lobby in South Africa, but is it?
Glycemic index
Or are we about to see a massive jump in AIDS deaths from the
use of these dangerous, toxic drugs.
The following is a summary of what the public generally
believes about AIDS today:

AIDS is a disease arising from an infection from the virus
known as HIV.
The virus is spread in humans either through promiscuous,
unprotected homosexual sex, through sexual contact with an
HIV-infected member of the opposite sex, through the
sharing of intravenous drug users' contaminated needles or
through contaminated blood supplies.
Pregnant women who test positive can pass the virus on to
their unborn child
HIV can also be transmitted to the baby outside of the womb
through breast-feeding.
The AIDS test is a simple and accurate method of detecting
HIV.
In the West, HIV infection is spreading among women and
heterosexual men and is increasing exponentially every year.
Drugs are available to treat AIDS patients but they are very
expensive. A new range of anti-HIV drugs, the 'protease
inhibitors', are now believed to be more effective.
AIDS is devastating the Third World.
There is currently no cure for AIDS.
With the exception of AIDS drugs being expensive,
everything you have just read in the above summary is
ENTIRELY FALSE and has no scientific validity whatsoever.

Sunburn. What is sunburn, sunburn effects. Safely avoiding sunburn.
Sunburn - the "healing response" of the skin
If you have ever sunbathed, swum in tropical waters, had a summers picnic, or any one of a
million ther activities, it is quite likely you have had sunburn - that itchy, painful, smarting ugly
redness that tells us we have overdone it in the sun.
Health Information
Natural Health
But, what is sunburn, what does it mean and what can we do about it?
Glycemic index
When the suns rays strike the skin, they penetrate through the uppermost layer (the
epidermis), which sonsists largely of dead, old skin cells, to the dermis, the living, growing part
of the skin that creates new skin cells.
Nutritional supplements
These young, newly-formed cells are particularly sensitive to
sunlight, which, when over-exposed, can dehydrate them,
damage the cell walls, leading to disease and even cause severe
damage to the DNA of the cell itself, which is one of the
recognised starting points of skin cancer. As the heat persists in
the skin, it causes further damage, literally "cooking" these new
skin cells as they emerge.
These different forms of irritation all require a healing response,
whose design is to stop us from causing further damage, whilst
giving the skin time to repair itself. If we continue to gets lots of
sun exposure, the skin will gradually darken, increasing its
melanin content in the form of a suntan to filter out some of the harmful rays and protect us
from chronic skin damage.
The image on the felt, shows some of the damaged cells in sunburnt skin.
In the short-term, however, the result is sunburn - probably the single
most effective way of getting us to keep out of the sun (the body is VERY
clever like that :-)

Like many other problems, children's skin heals more quickly from sunburn, but is also less
likely to contain protective melanin. As we age, the components of our skin change in the same
way that other parts of our body do, generaly making them less efficient at what they do.
So what can you do about sunburn?

The most obvious point is not to get burnt in the first place, either by not getting overexposed,
or by using a high-quality, reflective suncreen (unlike most sunscreens, which can actually
CAUSE skin cancer), but that isn't always possible.
The vast majority of aftersun products concentrate on remoisturising the skin, helping dissipate
the heat at the same time as soothing the pain and itching. Some traditional remedies such as
lavender or aloe vera oil can actually reduce the extent of the burn as they do for conventional
burns (tip - ALWAYS keep lavender oil in the kitchen - you'll be amazed at how effective it is on
burns!), but do little to help the healing process.
Recently, however, new preparations have appeared that actually stimulate the healing process
and help repair the DNA damage that can be so dangerous if left unchecked.

This is a remarkable advance on previous treatments and can actually halt the damage in its
tracks, not only reducing the pain, swelling, redness and itchiness of sunburn, but also helping
resolve the dangerous DNA damage that can be the start of skin cancer.
The visual results are just as impressive. In the images below, the left-hand photo is of a man
who has developed sunburn after overexposure. The right-hand image is of the same man the
next day after applying DNA repair creme the night before. As you can see, the results were
dramatic and enabled him to venture out the next day, which his friends who had been equally
burnt could not.
Clearly, the self-evident healing was quite incredible, and entirely thanks to DNA Repair Creme.

Natural medicine. What is natural medicine and how does natural medicine work?
Nutritional Supplements - what are they, how do
they work and how do you choose them?
Health Information
Nutritional supplements are without a doubt
one of the most easily accessible and also one Toxin Free household
and cosmetic products
of the most confusing aspects of natural health.
Manufacturers often blind us with science and scientific (or pseudo- Dr Mercola's Health site
scientific) names. Here we summarise the different types of
vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and other
What Doctors Don't Tell
butritional supplements, so that you can both understand what they
You
do and why they are necessary for healthy living.
Why do we need food supplements?
Since the 1920s, Western Governments have known that the
majority of our food crops have been grown on mineral-depleted
soils, which makes them not only more susceptible to plant
diseases and insect attack, but also nutritionally fairly worthless.
In addition to this, animal feeds have changed from the natural
foods they eat in the wild to highly processed, chemical laden
concoctions that are designed to maximise growth rate, muscle
mass and therefore value whilst minimising cost and the time it
takes to turn them into a healthy profit. The result is meat that is
dangerously high in chemicals and totally lacking in the natural
nutritional elements that have kept us healthy for so long (until the
20th century!).

If this weren't bad enough, the modern reliance on pharmaceutical
medicine to remove all symptoms of disease instantly has led us
away from the traditional cures that sought to replace what was
missing in the body. Indeed, many modern drugs, such as diuretics
actually make us lose the very minerals we require for health at an
increased rate.
As a consequence, virtually everyone in the Western World (many
"primitive cultures" are much better nourished than we are) needs
to supplement their diet to a greater or lesser extent. the most
commonl types of nutritional supplements fall into the following
categories:Antioxidants

in the pharmaceutical industry, working for such companies as Lipha (now Merck-Lipha), RhoneTrans fats
Poulenc Rorer (now Aventis), Schering Healthcare and Abbot Laboratories.
Performing various roles in sales, marketing, clinical research, business development and product Weight Management
management, he studied various other fields, working with top specialists in cardiology,
respiratory disease, vascular disease and surgery, orthopaedics, haematology, oncology,
endocrine disease, diagnostic imaging and infectious disease, amongst others.
He later worked as a director of in medical publishing, composing, writing, publishing and

What Is RSS?
Everyone is talking about it, more and more sites are producing RSS feeds, so what is
RSS?.
Health Information
Natural Health
Simply put, RSS is the simplest, easiest and safest way to get the information YOU want from
the internet, without giving out your email address, personal details or anything else.
Without a doubt, it is "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or the
BBC, or just about anything else, like news on upcoming movie releases, DVDs, or just about
anything else.
Once you have set it up, all your favorite websites send their information to YOUR desktop - it's
like THEY come to YOU.
No more bookmarks required!
"RSS" stands for "Really Simple Syndication." What that means is that when a site you have
selected updates its content, you automatically get the headlines straight to your RSS reader no more needing to check regularly to see if sites have updated.
Yes, RSS is amazing. It's also completely addictive. No e-mail. No spam. It's so easy to
subscribe and unsubscribe. If you get tired of a feed, you just have to delete the it. It's
fantastic!

Modern medicine. Effects of modern medicine and why modern medicine should be avoided
Modern medicine - the answer to your problems...or
the cause of them?
Health Information
Everyone knows that medicine has made
Toxin Free household
huge advances over recent years and that
modern medicine is the best we've ever had........ don't they? Well, and cosmetic products
actually.....NO!
Dr Mercola's Health site
What do you think is the single biggest cause of death in the United
States?
Heart Disease? NO! (although many would have us believe it is!)
Cancer? NO! (in fact, almost ALL cancer patients die of their
treatment, NOT the cancer itself!)
So what is it?, what kills more people every year than cancer or
heart disease?
You've never heard of it, it never makes the news and Doctors will
never tell you about it, but the single biggest cause of death in the
USA is.......
Iatrogenic death
or, to you and me.....

It's official, Doctors kill more people through mistakes, drug sideeffects, hospital infections, botched surgical procedures (many of
which are totally unnecessary) and other important "treatments"
than any of the "diseases" they claim to treat! (and that's
WITHOUT including the huge number of cancer patients killed by
their "treatment").
How can this be true? Surely modern medicine is the most
technologically advanced, capable and freely available we have ever
had? Well, yes....and no!
Whilst it is true that technological advancements have continued to
bring new possibilities to modern medicine, many of these
"advances" are questionable, either in terms of their necessity,
their results or their practical application. At the same time,
centuries (and sometimes millenias) old, proven forms of medicine
have been ignored, shelved and increasingly rediculed by a
pharmaceutical-basd organisation that doesn't understand them...
and doesn't want to.
Even when convincing and consistent natural treatments are
brought to light that are FAR more successful than their modern,

What Doctors Don't Tell
You
Campaign for Truth in
Medicine
Modern medicine. Effects of modern medicine and why modern medicine should be avoided
pharmaceutical alternatives, the powers that be in modern
medicine not only ridicule them, but REFUSE to even study them so much for their interest in human health!
How can this be? Surely Doctors are the most altruistic of beings,
determined to help others at every opportunity?
Well, yes. And again, no. Whilst many, perhaps even the majority
of Doctors see their role as providing help to the needy, their hands
are hopelessly tied (and their education directed) by Government,
regulatory authorities and research bodies that are ENTIRELY under
the control of the industrial and pharmaceutical giants.
It is a sad fact that virtually 100% of ALL medical education
(both under-graduate and post-graduate) is paid for either directly
or indirectly by the pharmaceutical industry. As such, the
industry can control the educational agenda and our doctors are
now taught little except how to control the symptoms of
disease, preferably with long-term drug use. It is not the Doctors
themselves that are at fault, but the pharmaceutical marketing
system that trains them.
Now lets think about what that means.
EVERY Doctor, regardless of his / her own convictions, is taught
that the way to treat disease is to use drugs, often without
even considering the underlying causes of the disease.
Examples
●
●
●
●
High blood pressure (hypertension). Modern medicine uses
various drugs to drop the blood pressure - without
considering why the body had elevated it in the first place.
Angina - Modern medicine uses drugs to "cover-up" the
symptoms of angina and other forms of heart diease, without
telling you you can actually reverse the damage that is
causing it!
High Cholesterol - modern medicine uses drugs to artifically
force lower cholesterol levels, without thinking about WHY
the body raised them in the first place (clue: it is a defensive
mechanism!)
Depression - modern medicine dopes adults and
(increasingly) kids with toxic drugs to cover up pyschiatric /
psychological issues that are caused by malnutrition, plain
and simple. (specifically, a chronic lack of omega-3 fatty
acids)
Yet the few who are prepared to speak out against these giant
corporations are shunned by their own colleagues, whose blinkered,
self-serving attitudes are exactly what their pharmaceutical bosses
want to see. Take these examples.
1. Dr Weston A Price, who proved beyond all doubt that the
chronic diseases we have seen emerge in the 20th century
are largely caused by our increasingly poor nutrition,
and that in 26 separate "primitive" societies, these diseases
DO NOT EXIST - until you give them a Western diet! He was
IGNORED by modern medicine.
http://www.natural-health-information-centre.com/modern-medicine.html (2 of 4)4/19/2005 16:19:24
Modern medicine. Effects of modern medicine and why modern medicine should be avoided
2. Dr Linus Pauling, one of the few people EVER to win TWO
Nobel prizes, who showed not only that ischaemic heart
disease is nothing more than chronic scurvy (Vitamin C
deficiency), but that ALL CHRONIC DISEASE is caused by
mineral deficiencies. Modern medicine ridiculed his results
without even studying them, but has no answer to his
success in treating patients.
3. Dr Mary Enig (author of Know Your Fats : The Complete
Primer for Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and
Cholesterol), one of the pioneer scientists involved in
assessing the role of various fats in heart disease and cancer
in the 1950s, who proved that saturated fats (in butter,
cheese, eggs and meat) PROTECT against these diseases,
whilst the unnatural hydrogenated vegetable oils used in
margerines (and virtually all prepared foods) CAUSE
the very problems they are supposed to prevent. She
was shunned by the modern medicine establishment and all
research funding was withdrawn, despite the fact that the
evidence fully backed her up.
And these are just a few examples from many cases where
modern medicine is so entrenched in its pharmaceutical-based
"symptom treatment" paradigm that it has totally lost all
interest in PRVENTING disease, which is exactly what Natural
Medicine is all about.
As if they weren't enough, the pharmaceutical industry, through its
pressure group, Codex Alimentarius, is now trying to ban the very
minerals and vitamins that can prevent and treat disease - fight it!
So what can you do about it?
The answer is very simple - make sure you are informed about your
health problems, and make sure your Doctor, or other health care
professional is informed too. If your Doctor doesn't undestand
the importance of nutrition, find another Doctor who does.
●
●
●
●
Establish a routine of basic nutrition, which in many
cases is enough to stop many "chronic diseases" in their
tracks.
If you already suffer from a "chronic disease", don't just
accept lifelong treatment, find out which deficiencies are
implicated and (if basic nutrition for a few months doesn't do
the job) correct them, you will be amazed at the results.

Be prepared for the long term - most "diseases" take years
to develop, they WILL take time to recover from too.

Recover from womens health problems - naturally
There are a variety of womens health problems that require specifc
attention and specific treatment and action. Luckily, many of these
problems, though they can be distressing and painful to experience, can be dealt with
both simply and effectively. Some womens health problems will require a bit more effort
than others, but virtually all can be eliminated if proper natural health steps are taken to
eliminate the causes.
This is in direct contrast to modern medicine, which usually attempts to relieve the
symptoms of womens healthproblems without considering, or treating the underlying
causes. In most cases, there is a hormonal imbalance, which leads to the various
symptoms experienced by women of all ages. By restoring the natural balance of female
hormones, many womens health can be restored an these symptoms can be eliminated permanently.

water. Water requirements, dehydration and properties of water
water
Water is without doubt THE most important nutrient available to us....and
one of the most frequently deficient!
Health Information
Natural Health
Water bathes all your cells, it gives then the rigidity to form structures; enables the transport of
other nutrients; dissolves both nutrients and waste; provides mechanisms for controlling heating Glycemic index
and cooling.
Nutritional supplements
Yet, many people are do dehydrated (lack of water) that they are ill as a
consequence. in his important book, Your "Body's Many Cries for Water", Dr F Bathmanghelidj
Vitamins & Minerals
reports how many "diseases" can be attributed to chronic dehydration and how treatment with
water, our most important nutrient, can resolve them completely.
Womens health
When we don't drink enough, our tissues and cells start to sag and become limp - think of how a
balloon appears after losing some of its air and you'll have the right idea. This not only means

that they lose their structural strength, it may also mean that they can't function properly and

It is in this way that most cases of back pain can be successfully treated using water - Healthy cholesterol
the pillow-like "discs" between the backbones become dehydrated and shrivel, allowing the
levels
bones to rub against each other and the tissues in-between, causing pain, swelling and
discomfort. Just "re-inflating" the discs with ample water can be enough to totally reverse the
process.
Heart Disease
So it is with many other diseases of water loss. Electrolytes can't be transported properly,
nutrients and waste don't go where they are supposed to or are left to build-up, heat-loss
becomes difficult and cell function reduces. Left unchecked, this situation would quickly
lead to coma and death.
Diets
Fortunately, we have defense mechanisms to protect against this scenario. The thirst reflex is
intended to let us know when we need to drink. In babies, it is in excellent form and they
regularly let us know when they are thirsty.
Omega 3
However, as we go through life nowadays, we start replacing our water intake with
sodas, coffee, tea, alcohol, squash and fruit juices. The fact is that these contain other
substances that reduce our water absorption, retention and increase excretion. In the case of
alcohol and caffeinated drinks (many sodas, tea and coffee), these actively stimulate the
kidneys to produce more urine, causing further water-loss.

In fact, in many people nowadays, the body has become so chronically dehydrated
that it has given up, and the thirst reflex just doesn't work any more. It never gets a
response and so "switches off" until the body reaches a critical state of severe dehydration and
water loss, only kicking in as a last gasp effort to maintain life - that is what most of us call
"thirst".
In contrast, when people who have chronically low water intake feel they are "hungry", they
are probably only thirsty! The thirst reflex is now so poorly effective that it tries to stimulate
water intake in any way it can. Water taken in as solid food (any foods are over 50% water) is
better than none at all! If only we would drink water instead of eating, we would not only
consume less (and therefore have less weight problems), we would also be a lot healthier.

So what can we do about this problem?
In most cases, it is simple. Drink clean, unadulterated (and free from chemical additives like
chlorine and flurine) water. In most cases (and here, we speak from personal experience) after
a day or two of consuming two to two and a half liters of water a day, the thirst reflex will
suddenly switch itself back on and you will feel thirsty continually until you have supplied the
water your body needs - on average around 3-4 liters a day for a woman and 4-5 liters for a
man. (in hotter climates, more may be necessary)
That is not to say you can do this overnight - most people need to start adding about a glass a
day to their water intake until they achieve an appropriate amount or their body responds by
stopping to feel thirsty.
The health benefits of this are immense.

You will have more energy
You will "feel" better
Many chronic health problems will just "go away"
You will flush out more toxins, contributing to long-term health
Your immune system will benefit, enabling you to "fight off"
more bugs and illnesses
"Hangovers" will become a thing of the past! (most people get hangovers because they
START drinking whilst already dehydrated!)
Doesn't this sound like a significant change in your life? You bet!
What's that? You're worried about peeing all the time? So what! Urine takes lots of toxins
with it and is a major cleansing system for the body. In fact, if your urine is anything except
almost clear and VERY pale yellow, you ARE already dehydrated and need to drink more water.
This is a small price to pay for the health benefits you WILL receive.
Remember, your daily water intake should be IN ADDITION TO any sodas, beers, squash, fruit

water. Water requirements, dehydration and properties of water
juice or tea and coffee you drink.
If your water is chlorinated and/or has added fluoride, you MUST filter it to remove
these poisons. fluride serves no purpose and is only there so the paper mills and aluminum
smelters don't have to pay for getting rid of their waste! Chlorine is there to kill bugs in the
pipes, and, once it has reached you, serves no useful purpose. To get rid of it, leave a jug of
water in the fridge and it will evaporate.
Even better, get a water filter - either a simple jug-type or an expensive, but worthwhile
whole-house system. These will remove all of the unwanted chemicals from your water and
leave you with pure, sweet, drinkable water. You can even get a shower filter or a sports waterbottle with built-in filter now, so you can refill it anywhere and get the benefits of filtered water
as if you were at home.
In fact, showering is the equivalent of drinking several galsses of water, so you should seriously
consider installing a shower water filter if you live in an area with poor water (which, these days,
is most of us, unfortunately).
Water is not only the most important nutrient, it is also the cheapest, so how anyone could allow
themselves to become dehydrated the way we do is not only incredible, it is a major cause for
concern. You owe it to yourself to make sure you and your family are properly hydrated - every
day!

Cholesterol is a naturally-occurring fat which is fundamentally required for good health. It is the
precursor to both the male hormone testosterone and the female hormone oestrogen, which
cannot be made without it. In addition, it performs other vital functions in the body, but more of Vitamins & Minerals

Contrary to popular belief, in most people, the levels of cholesterol found in the blood have little

The main reason cited for the desirability of reducing blood cholesterol is the massive increase in - High cholesterol diet

ischemic heart disease (IHD) seen during the 20th century. IHD, the main consequence of which
is angina and myocardial infarction (MI) was virtually unknown at the beginning of the 1900s. In levels
fact, one well-known Doctor who practised for many years from the mid-1920's is quoted as
saying that he didn't see a single case of MI for the first 7 years of his practice.
Heart Disease
Subsequent examination of those who died of MI showed that their arteries had been "clogged

IHD was made and that was that. Ever since, Doctors have been trying to invent ways to reduce

blood cholesterol levels, but have not stopped to consider why they were elevated in the first
place! If they had, they might have been surprised. In order to explain, we need to examine the
physiology of blood vessels, particularly arteries.

Like all other cells in the body, the artery cells are constantly under attack from free radicals
and other cell-damaging forces and are in a continual state or replacement and repair. As a
consequence, they need a constant supply of new collagen to replace the damaged cells, so as
not to "spring a leak". Collagen is, itself, constructed of a number of components, not least
Vitamin C.
When there is insufficient Vitamin C in the body, new collagen cannot be formed to repair the
damaged artery cells. this causes a problem for the body, which does not plan for future
problems, but is only interested is surviving the "here and now". It therefore has to find
something else to repair the damage and uses what could be referred to as the body's "bandaid", namely cholesterol. Molecules of cholesterol actually bind to the damaged sites, preventing
blood loss and its disastrous consequences.

ischemic Heart Disease
As time goes on, this process repeats itself (in the absence of Vitamin C) and gradually the
arteries become clogged, restricting the blood flow until something blocks the remaining space ,
causing ischemia (lack of blood flow) and infarction (cell-death due to oxygen "starvation").
Hence cholesterol is a sign of a problem, not the cause of the problem - and the
problem is vitamin C, or, more specifically, lack of it! this led the only man who has ever won
two Nobel prizes, scientist Dr Linus Pauling to suggest that heart disease was in fact chronic
scurvy and could be treated with vitamin C. Pauling was ridiculed by the medical establishment,
which clung to it's shoddy science and did nothing to test his hypothesis. Incidentally, the
symptoms of acute scurvy (that is a total lack of vitamin C) are.....leaky blood vessels, leading
to massive hemorrhage!
Others were not so ignorant.
So what of cholesterol and heart disease?
Pauling and his colleague, Dr Matthias Rath, spent many years examining this situation. They
found that the problem of IHD was one that was specific to a very small group of mammals,
man included, and the one thing that these animals had in common, which differed from ALL
other animals was that they could not make their own vitamin C. EVERY single other
animal in the whole planet makes its own vitamin C in the liver. Man and the other few
animals which suffer from IHD do not!
The result is known as chelation therapy - the only known method of reversing IHD, and
one that is almost totally ignored by modern medicine in favour of drugs which do nothing but
control the symptoms of the problem.
Others have suggested that, if the problem is a chronic lack of vitamin C, perhaps ischemic
heart disease can be prevented by increasing vitamin C consumption. The only practical method
of doing this is by supplementation, and adherents take anything from 3g (3,000mg) to 12g
(12,000mg) of Vitamin C per day - hundreds of times the "recommended daily allowance" used
by most Governments of 90mg/day (which, as with most RDA's, is a waste of effort - you may

as well do nothing).
The answer of the medical establishment was somewhat different. they decided the best thing to
be would be to invent cholesterol-lowering drugs to reduce the amount of cholesterol
circulating in the blood. According to the physiology above, this will have disastrous effects,
as the body will not be able to perform its normal healing processes. Scientific studies are now
showing that cholesterol-lowering drugs have serious long-term effects which bear out
this hypothesis.
What should you do if you have "high-cholesterol"
The decision is yours.
Ask your Doctor about chelation therapy or "Pauling therapy". Bear in mind that during his 7
years training, it is likely your physician has had no more than 1 or maybe 2 HOURS of training
on nutrition, compared to hundreds or even thousands on drug therapy. Is it any wonder w are
so reliant on pharmaceuticals?
For a medical view on the dangers of cholesterol-lowering drugs, visit Dr Mercola's website.
Alternatively, if you would like to learn more about cholesterol and heart disease, please contact
us.
If you plan to increase your vitamin C intake, inform your Doctor and make sure you read
the section on Vitamins to ensure you know which minerals and trace elements are necessary to
absorb vitamin C.

This is somewhat of a difficult question, not least because high cholesterol is itself a
symptom of another problem - namely Vitamin C deficiency (chronic scurvy), as identified
by twice Nobel laureate, Linus Pauling in the 1970s. As a result, the symptoms you would
expect to be associated with hypercholesterolemia as actually the symptoms of chronic
scurvy, namely leaky blood vessels, and desperate attempts by the body to block those
leaks, usually with its most easily available filler - cholesterol!
Now, you may think scurvy is a thing of the past, and, in its acute form, which killed huge
amounts of sailors and those who used to travel by sea, it is. However, along with many
other nutrients, such as the other vitamins and minerals, essential fatty acids and trace
elements, the diet of most people (and especially the North American diet) in the Western
World is so nutritionally deficient that chronic diseases that never used to exist are killing
more and more people every year.
How can the Western diet be nutritionally deficient today,
resulting in high cholesterol symptoms?

If the SUPPLY of these nutrients is lower than the DEMAND, something has to give. The
body up whatever stores it has (if any), then, selectively starts shutting down body
processes in order of the least critical to life threatening until it can re-stock on the missing
supplies.
The result of this imbalance is DISEASE, and high cholesterol and its symptoms are nothing
except a direct sign that the body is deficient in a specific nutrient - Vitamin C.

Nutritional supplements. Nutritional supplement effects and the role of nutritional supplements.
Nutritional Supplements - what are they, how do they work and how do
you choose them?
Nutritional supplements are without a doubt one of the most easily
accessible and also one of the most confusing aspects of natural health.
Manufacturers of nutritional supplements often blind us with science and scientific (or pseudoscientific) names. Here we summarise the different types of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty
acids, antioxidants and other nutritional supplements, so that you can both understand what
they do and why they are necessary for healthy living.
Why do we need nutritional supplements or food supplements?
Since the 1920s, Western Governments have known that the majority of our food crops have
been grown on mineral-depleted soils, which makes them not only more susceptible to plant
diseases and insect attack, but also nutritionally fairly worthless.

If this weren't bad enough, the modern reliance on pharmaceutical medicine to remove all

Vitamins (or VItal AMINes) are, as the name suggests, vital for good
health. The primary source of vitamins is from our dieat, however due to
the excessive processing of modern foods, which destroys or renders inactive many vitamins,

Minerals. Role of minerals, mineral effects and mineral supplements
Minerals, the ignition key for vitamins and controllers of many processes.
Health Information
Minerals are the keys to the engines we know of as vitamins.
Natural Health
NO vitamins can be absorbed or carry out their intended functions without the presence of
specific minerals in very particular amounts.
Glycemic index
Minerals are fundamentally metals and other inorganic compunds that not only provide much of
the structure of, for example, bones and teeth. In additin they are critical to countless body
processes and can be separated into two main groups, major minerals - which are required in
amounts greater than 100mg per day and trace elements, of which less is required.

Cholesterol is a naturally-occurring fat which is fundamentally required for good health. It is
the precursor to both the male hormone testosterone and the female hormone oestrogen,
which cannot be made without it. In addition, it performs other vital functions in the body,

follows that either reducing the amount of fat in the diet or taking pills to reduce cholesterol

is absolutely pointless.
The main reason cited for the desirability of reducing blood cholesterol is the massive
increase in ischemic heart disease (IHD) seen during the 20th century. IHD, the main
consequence of which is angina and myocardial infarction (MI) was virtually unknown at the
beginning of the 1900s. In fact, one well-known Doctor who practised for many years from
the mid-1920's is quoted as saying that he didn't see a single case of MI for the first 7
years of his practice.
Subsequent examination of those who died of MI showed that their arteries had been
"clogged up" with fatty deposits that were high in cholesterol. The connection between
cholesterol and IHD was made and that was that. Ever since, Doctors have been trying to
invent ways to reduce blood cholesterol levels, but have not stopped to consider why they
were elevated in the first place! If they had, they might have been surprised. In order to
explain, we need to examine the physiology of blood vessels, particularly arteries.
Construction of arteries
Arteries are the large, elastic blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart, both to
the lungs (deoxygenated blood) and to the rest of the body (oxygenated blood). They are
composed of three layers, whose names are not relevant to this discussion, but which, in
varying degree are made up of various structural components, the most important of which

Like all other cells in the body, the artery cells are constantly under attack from free radicals Trans fats

consequence, they need a constant supply of new collagen to replace the damaged cells, so Weight Management
as not to "spring a leak". Collagen is, itself, constructed of a number of components, not
least Vitamin C.
When there is insufficient Vitamin C in the body, new collagen cannot be formed to repair
the damaged artery cells. this causes a problem for the body, which does not plan for future
problems, but is only interested is surviving the "here and now". It therefore has to find
something else to repair the damage and uses what could be referred to as the body's
"band-aid", namely cholesterol. Molecules of cholesterol actually bind to the damaged sites,
preventing blood loss and its disastrous consequences.
ischemic Heart Disease
As time goes on, this process repeats itself (in the absence of Vitamin C) and gradually the
arteries become clogged with cholesterol "bandages", restricting the blood flow until
something blocks the remaining space , causing ischemia (lack of blood flow) and infarction
(cell-death due to oxygen "starvation").
Hence cholesterol is a sign of a problem, not the cause of the problem - and the
problem is vitamin C, or, more specifically, lack of it! this led the only man who has ever
won two Nobel prizes, scientist Dr Linus Pauling to suggest that heart disease was in fact
chronic scurvy and could be treated with vitamin C. Pauling was ridiculed by the medical
establishment, which clung to it's shoddy science and did nothing to test his hypothesis.
Incidentally, the symptoms of acute scurvy (that is a total lack of vitamin C) are.....leaky
blood vessels, leading to massive hemorrhage!
Others were not so ignorant.
Treatment of IHD
Pauling and his colleague, Dr Matthias Rath, spent many years examining this situation.
They found that the problem of IHD (and high cholesterol) was one that was specific to a
very small group of mammals, man included, and the one thing that these animals had in
common, which differed from ALL other animals was that they could not make their own
vitamin C. EVERY single other animal in the whole planet makes its own vitamin C
in the liver. Man and the other few animals which suffer from IHD do not!
The result is known as chelation therapy - the only known method of reversing IHD,
and one that is almost totally ignored by modern medicine in favour of drugs which do
nothing but control the symptoms of the problem.
Others have suggested that, if the problem is a chronic lack of vitamin C, perhaps ischemic
heart disease can be prevented by increasing vitamin C consumption. The only practical
method of doing this is by supplementation, and adherents take anything from 3g

(3,000mg) to 12g (12,000mg) of Vitamin C per day - hundreds of times the "recommended
daily allowance" used by most Governments of 90mg/day..
The answer of the medical establishment was somewhat different. they decided the best
thing to be would be to invent cholesterol-lowering drugs to reduce the amount of
cholesterol circulating in the blood. According to the physiology above, this will have
disastrous effects, as the body will not be able to perform its normal healing processes.
Scientific studies are now showing that cholesterol-lowering drugs have serious longterm effects which bear out this hypothesis.
What should you do if you have "high-cholesterol"
The decision is yours.
Ask your Doctor about chelation therapy or "Pauling therapy". Bear in mind that during
his 7 years training, it is likely your physician has had no more than 1 or maybe 2 HOURS of
training on nutrition is it any wonder w are so reliant on pharmaceuticals?
For a medical view on the dangers of cholesterol-lowering drugs, visit Dr Mercola's
website.
If you plan to increase your vitamin C intake, inform your Doctor and make sure you
read the section on Vitamins to ensure you know which minerals and trace elements are
necessary to absorb vitamin C.

You have been told that lowering your cholesterol levels is important,
so how do you lower cholesterol and is cholesterol lowering even
Cholesterol is an essential component of thousands of body processes, not least the
majority of hormones, especially the sex hormones. Without cholesterol, the processes that
rely on those hormones would grind to a halt. Unfortunately, cholesterol has been the
subject of much speculation, poor research , vested interests and many, many advertising
dollars, with the result that most people think that lowering your cholesterol is not only
important, but that cholesterol lowering is a major priority for them.
Unfortunately, it is not as simple as "lowering your cholesterol", we have to understand the
principles behind cholesterol lowering and the important factor - who stands to gain from
you lowering your cholesterol?
In our review of cholesterol, we have shown that the science behind cholesterol lowering is
fundamentally flawed and that, if you are like most people, there is no point lowering your
cholesterol. Why, simple, your cholesterol isn't the problem in the first place.
Cholesterol is a naturally-occurring fat which is fundamentally required for good health. It is
the precursor to both the male hormone testosterone and the female hormone oestrogen,
which cannot be made without it. In addition, it performs many, many other vital functions
in the body.
Levels of cholesterol in blood have nothing to do with fat in the diet - almost! So
why are so many people obsessed with lowering your cholesterol? Simply, we have been
duped by those who want to make a fast buck, namely the doctors, pharmaceutical
companies and vegetable oil maufacturers who spread the lie that lowering your cholesterol
is important.
Contrary to popular belief, in most people, the levels of cholesterol found in the blood have
little or nothing to do with fats consumed in the diet. Cholesterol is manufactured in the
liver in the amounts required by the body to perform its various functions. It therefore
follows that either reducing the amount of fat in the diet or taking pills to lower your
cholesterol is absolutely pointless.

thousands of years! How does that suggest you have to lower your cholesterol?
Subsequent examination of those who died of MI showed that their arteries had been
"clogged up" with fatty deposits that were high in cholesterol. The connection between

Is lowering your cholesterol really important?
Having accepted that cholesterol does not CAUSE heart disease, but is merely a symptom,
we could be excused for not lowering your cholesterol at all.

The high cholesterol diet and lowering your cholesterol levels?
You have been told that you have a high cholesterol diet, and that
lowering your cholesterol levels is important, so what is a proper diet for
high cholesterol, in fact, what is a high cholesterol diet?
In fact, these are two very different questions, but both have similar answers.
What is a high cholesterol diet?
First of all, there is no such thing as a high cholesterol diet. Yes, you heard that correctly,
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A HIGH CHOLESTEROL DIET!
Regardless of the amount of cholesterol in your diet, your liver will make however much
cholesterol your body needs, period. High cholesterol diet or low cholesterol diet, your
cholesterol levels will be the same - why? Check out our cholesterol page for full details.
Put simply, it doesn't matter whether your diet is high in cholesterol or low in cholesterol cholesterol is so important to your body that it can, and does make as much AND ONLY AS
MUCH CHOLESTEROL AS IT NEEDS.
Does it matter that you have a "high cholesterol diet"?
In a word, NO, a high cholesterol diet is irrelevant - as long as you are properly nourished, have
enough vitamin C in your system and sufficient antioxidants included in your high cholesterol
diet.
As explained on our cholesterol page, the issue is not your high cholesterol diet, it is your
dietary lack of vitamin C that causes high cholesterol levels, so stop worrying about your high
cholesterol diet and cholesterol levels and start worrying about your vitamin C intake!

Simply put, when your doctor measures your cholesterol level, he discovers how much of the

Of course it does, but not for the reasons you think. Un-Healthy cholesterol levels signify that
you are deficient in Vitamin C, which is used to repair the continual damage to your arteries. If
you can't fix them, the body needs to do something else to ensure un-healthy cholesterol levels
show that your body is using its "reserve" repair material instead of its first choice, nothing
more, nothing less.

Diets. Diets, dieting and weight loss - why, how and when.
Diets. Do they work? If so, how?
And, which one should I follow?
We have all tried one of the many "diets" at some time or other.
Whether it be just "avoiding fatty food" or "recovering" from holiday

Let's face it, diets are a fact of life, they are everywhere - on TV, in magazines, touted to
us by Doctors, dieticians, nurses, Government officials and of course, celebrities. We can Nutritional supplements

So why are so many of us overweight, obese even?
Womens health
The answer lies in our almost total lack of knowledge about diets, how they "work" and
what they mean to our body. Happily, this means that we can learn how to get over the
problem and lose weight permanently, which, of course, was what we were all trying to
do in the first place!

Why do diets not work, or only work temporarily?
This is one of the most common questions about diets, and perhaps the easiest to
answer. We are all (generally) aware that if we are overweight, it is because we have
been eating too much of the wrong things, and probably not enough of the right things
(even if we don't know what the "wrong" and "right" things are).
Heart Disease
Diets
Usually, we have put on the extra weight over weeks, months, even years, yet for some
bizarre reason, we expect to change our diet for a few days or weeks and miraculously
lose all this extra weight - does this sound reasonable to you? Of course not.
Cancers
Whilst dieting may result in short term weight loss, we almost all (and nearly inevitably)
then return to our previous lifestyle of wrong foods, little or no excercise etc, and
(surprise, surprise) we gain all the weight back again, usually with interest!
Hydrogenated fats
Face it - we are a product of our lifestyle, and if we return to the old lifestyle, we will end
up just like we were before, which usually means overweight.

Hydrogenated fats. Hydrogenated fats, trans fats and cholesterol
When is a vegetable oil not a vegetable oil? When
it's a plastic!
Hydrogenated fats responsible for many diseases
The current hysteria regarding cholesterol
stems from research done during the 1940s
and 1950s by the manufacturers of the new margarines and
"healthy" hydrogenated fats. The suggestion was that cholesterol
(specifically Low-Density-Lipopotrein, or LDL-cholesterol) was
responsible for heart disease, which was even then beginning to
increase, due to the relatively high-fat diet enjoyed by most
westerners.

1. Western diets had always contained a relatively high
proportion of red meat. this was not a new phenomenon.
2. in 1978, Dr Mary Enig proved that cancer rates were
directly related to consumption of vegetable oils (including
hydrogenated fats) and total fat intake, but NOT related to
animal fat consumption. This research is often ignored by
the "cholesterol lobby", despite the fact that it has been
confirmed by other researchers.
3. Ischaemic heart disease (IHD) was virtually unknown until
the 1940s, when hydrogenated fats were introduced.
4. Little, if anything was done to examine the health effects of
hydrogenated fats, which are entirely unknown in nature.
5. Hydrogenated fats are literally "plastics", whch do not have
the same properties as natural fats.
6. The dangers of trans fats were recognised as long ago as
1958, but the vegetable oil industry continues to bad-mouth
safer, natural animal fats.

Hydrogenated fats
What is Hydrogenation?
Hydrogenation is the chemical name for the addition of hydrogen to Arthritis
an existing molecule, usually an organic molecule which has a
doubl-bond between two carbon atoms. That bond is broken and a
Aspartame
hydrogen atom binds to each of the free bonds on adjacent carbon
atoms.
Beast Cancer Bracelets
H2C=CH2 becomes H3C-CH3
This is achieved by forcing hydrogen, at high temperature (250400C) and pressure into the liquid oil, usually in the presence of a
catalyst such as nickel or platinum, over several hours.
Unfortunately, the process can't control where the hydrogen atoms
are added to the molecule, resulting in a mixture of totally
unnatural fats, many of which are trans fatty acids. Fatty acids are
the "building blocks" of fats, in much the same way as amino acids
are the building blocks of proteins. The resulting fats are totally
unnatural hydrogenated fats.

Hydrogenated fats. Hydrogenated fats, trans fats and cholesterol
The consequences of of creating hydrogenated fats are:
●
●
●
●
●
●
The melting point of the oil is raised, turning many
previously liquid oils into solids.
Shelf-life is increased, as the resulting oil is less susceptible
to degrading over time (maybe bacteria have a difficult time
eating it too!).
All nutritional value in the original oil is lost.
The texture of the resultant solid can be made to resemble
that of natural, animal fats.
The previously perfectly natural oil becomes a totally
unnatural, dangerous, relatively undigestable "plastic".
Tissues made with the "false" fat cannot function properly, as
thousands of enzymes can't bind to them, giving rise to a
host of disease states.
Why bother making hydrogenated fats?
In fact, the prime reason for inventing these oils was that the
producers (mostly in the USA, especially in the early days) needed
them to survive the long transatlantic ship journey required to
reach the markets in Europe. The driving force was, then, the
increase in shelf-life which hydrogenation caused. Little or no
consideration was given to the health effects of this major
chemical alteration of the oil molecule.
In addition to this, hydrogenation allows the manufacturer to turn a
liquid oil into something that resembles the totally natural food,
butter in colour, texture, "mouth feel" and taste, whilst it is clearly
something VERY different.
In doing so, natural oils are converted into totally unnatural fats,
which not only had never existed before, but which have completely
different effects on the body than their natural counterparts. Many
of these compounds are so called "trans fats", many of which do
not occur naturally and which are known to have serious health
implications, not just in relation to heart disease, but also to
cancer, diabetes, obesity, pregnancy and the function of the
immune system.
In fact, the fact that these trans fats are straight molecule and not
natural, curved ones leads to one of the simplest and most
important deficiencies of trans fats - that the enzymes that control
bodily function cannot bind to them and cell membranes made from
them (for more information, see the original research here) . This
means that these cells malfunction and that vital body processes
are interrupted, causing many serious, chronic and degnerative
diseases.
Despite this clear evidence from researchers concerned about the
modern obsession with animal fats, hydrogenated fats are still used
routinely by the food industry and are a major contributor to illhealth. Recently, some manufacturers have become so concerned
about this issue that they have taken the extraordinary (for them)
step of removing trans fats from all of their products. the Mars
company is one such example.
In the USA, the FDA has ruled that nutritional information on foods
must include the level of trans fats from 2006. in the meantime,
they simply suggest that consumption of trans fats should be "as

The simple answer is to avoid hydrogenated fats and products that
contain them whenever possible. For a list of foods that are most
dangerous, see the chapter on trans fats.

Aspartame. Why avoid aspartame?
Aspartame Lawsuits Accuse
Many Companies of Poisoning the Public
Defendants in the lawsuits include Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Bayer Corp., the
Dannon Company, William Wrigley Jr. Company, ConAgra Foods, Wyeth,
Inc., The NutraSweet Company, and Altria Corp. (parent company of Kraft Foods and Philip
Morris) and WalMart, and others.
SACRAMENTO-- April 6th, Lawsuits were filed in three separate California courts against twelve
companies who either produce or use the artificial sweetener aspartame as a sugar substitute in
their products. The suits were filed in Shasta, Sonoma and Butte County, California.
The suits allege that the food companies committed fraud and breach of warranty by marketing
products to the public such as diet Coke, diet Pepsi, sugar free gum, Flintstone's vitamins,
yogurt and children's aspirin with the full knowledge that aspartame, the sweetener in them, is
neurotoxic.

Aspartame is a drug masquerading as an additive. It interacts with other drugs, has a
synergistic and additive effect with MSG, and is a chemical hyper-sensitization agent. As far
back as 1970, Dr. John Olney founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity when he did
Heart Disease
studies on aspartic acid, which makes up 40% of aspartame, and found it caused lesions in the
brains of mice. He made world news on the aspartame/brain tumor connection in 1996. Dr.
Ralph Walton, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry, Northeastern Ohio
Diets
Universities College of Medicine has written of the behavioral and psychiatric problems triggered
by aspartame-caused depletion of serotonin.
Cancers
Aspartame causes headache, memory loss, seizures, vision loss, coma and cancer. It worsens or
mimics the symptoms of such diseases and conditions as fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, ADD,
Omega 3
diabetes, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue and depression.
Aspartame liberates free methyl alcohol. The resulting chronic methanol poisoning affects the
dopamine system of the brain causing addiction. Methanol, or wood alcohol, constitutes onethird of the aspartame molecule and is classified as a severe metabolic poison and narcotic.
Hydrogenated fats
Arthritis
Recent news is full of reports of world-class athletes and other healthy consumers of aspartame
suddenly dropping dead. Sudden death can occur from aspartame use because it damages the
cardiac conduction system.
Aspartame
Dr. Woodrow Monte in the peer reviewed journal, Aspartame: Methanol and the Public Health,
wrote: "When diet sodas and soft drinks, sweetened with aspartame, are used to replace fluid
loss during exercise and physical exertion in hot climates, the intake of methanol can exceed
250 mg/day or 32 times the Environmental Protection Agency's recommended limit of
consumption for this cumulative poison."

The effects of aspartame are documented by the FDA's own data. In 1995 the agency was
forced, under the Freedom Of Information Act, to release a list of ninety-two aspartame
symptoms reported by thousands of victims. This is only the tip of the iceberg. H. J. Roberts,
MD, published the medical text "Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic" -- 1,000 pages of
symptoms and diseases triggered by this neurotoxin including the sordid history of its approval.
Since its discovery in 1965, controversy has raged over the health risks associated with the
sugar substitute. From laboratory testing of the chemical on rats, researchers have discovered
that the drug induces brain tumors. On Sept 30, 1980 the Board of Inquiry of the FDA concurred
and denied the petition for approval. In 1981, the newly appointed FDA Commissioner, Arthur
Hull Hayes, ignored the negative ruling and approved aspartame for dry goods. As recorded in
the Congressional Record of 1985, then CEO of Searle Laboratories Donald Rumsfeld said that
he would call in his markers to get aspartame approved. Rumsfeld was on President Reagan's
transition team and a day after taking office appointed Hayes. No FDA Commissioner in the
previous sixteen years had allowed aspartame on the market.
In 1983, aspartame was approved for use in carbonated beverages. Today it is found in over
5,000 foods, drinks and medicines.
Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, MD, author of "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills" (www.
russellblaylockmd.com) wrote about the relationship between aspartame and macular
degeneration, diabetic blindness and glaucoma (all known to result from excitotoxin
accumulation in the retina).
All of these neurodegenerative diseases are worsened by aspartame. In addition, we now have
evidence that excitotoxins play a major role in exacerbation of MS and other demyelinating
disorders including trigeminal neuraliga. Blaylock says that new studies show excitotoxins
trigger significant elevation of free radicals in the lining (endothelial cells) of arteries, which
means that aspartame will increase the incidence of heart attacks and strokes (atherosclerosis).
In original studies, aspartame has triggered brain, mammary, uterine, ovarian, testicular,
thyroid and pancreatic tumors.
Plaintiffs have asked for an injunction to stop companies from producing, manufacturing,
processing, selling or using aspartame.
Plaintiffs in all three cases are seeking a jury trial.
World Natural Health Organization, www.wnho.net
PHILLIP DAY'S COMMENT: Remember, folks. There is no such thing as a sugar substitute. If you
are addicted to sugar, you are not solving the problem especially by switching to aspartame and
saccharin, any more than you solve a drink problem by switching to vodka. YOU HAVE A SUGAR
ADDICTION! Ask yourself a simple question: Can I go without sugar, biscuits, cakes, bread
(contains sugar), alcohol and soft drinks for the next four weeks and not have a serious problem
with that? If the answer's no, and you also have a history of antibiotic use and bowel/fungal
problems, we know who it is within you that wants all the sugar.

Pink Breast Cancer Bracelets and
Why you should wear one
So, just what are pink breast cancer bracelets? It all started with Lance Armstrong - there he
was, winning the tour-d-france for the Xth time and everyone what "what is that bracelet for?".
As a former cancer sufferer himself, Lance knew the power of symbols , and as the most
successful tour-de-france rider in history, he knew he could bring attention to his area of
concern with his bracelet - just like the pink breast cancer bracelets.

Why wear pink breast cancer bracelets?
Actually, Lance's gesture and the subsequent breast cancer bracelets are a great idea. The sole
purpose of pink breast cancer bracelets is tro draw attention to the problem of breast cancer
and help fund the search for possible breast cancer treatments. As a consequence, if you have
an interest in breast cancer (and, let's face it, why else would you be reading this?), you should
have a pink breast cancer bracelet (or several pink breast cancer bracelets :-).
Cynical people may think "it's just crazy", but it is symbols like the pink breast cancer bracelets
that capture the public imagination, bring important ideas to public attention and enable the
public to participate directly in the finding of appropriate treatments of problems like breast
cancer. So, rather than being cynical, our impression of pink breast cancer bracelets was "cool,
what a great idea, and what a great way to draw attention to the problem".

Why food additives?
Food additives come in many shapes and sizes and are anything but easy Womens health
to classify. Many dozens, even hundreds of chemicals find their way into food additives and just
about the only thing that can be said about virtually all food additives is that they are anything
but natural, in fact, all but a very select few food additives are totally synthetic and, therefore
foreign to the body.
As a consequence, the body treats these chemical compounds as foreign and doesn't tolerate
them very well at all. Quite apart from those food additives that are known to cause allergies,
many other food additives interact with both each other and various other chemicals in the
foodstuffs they are added to. As a result, we see the plethora of "food allergies", "food
intolerances" and "dietary irritants" that affect far to many people today, few, if any of which
even existed thirty, twenty, even ten years ago.

Trans fats, the real culprit of western ill-health.
Health Information
Trans fats
Many of the random compounds created when oils are hydrogenated are so-called "trans fats"
or, more correctly, trans-fatty acids. These are unnatural compounds, which are known to be
detrimental to health. In order to understand why, we need to consider some of the chemistry
involved. (not too much, I promise).
A natural, unsaturated fatty acid might look like the molecule below. It has several doublebonds between adjacent carbon atoms, which is what makes it "unsaturated". (saturated fats
have no double bonds and all the "spaces" available are taken up by hydrogen atoms.

When this oil is hydrogenated, it is not possible to control where the hydrogen atoms are added
to the structure. If both hydrogen atoms are added to the same side of the structure, it is called
a "Cis" fat. Cis fats exist naturally and, because the hydrogen atoms are crowded on one side of
the molecule, they bend, allowing other chemicals and enzymes to bind to them.

Trans fats
Weight Management
If, however one hydrogen atom adds to one side of the structure and the other atom to the
other side, it creates trans fats, like the one below. Trans fats do not exist naturally, with a very
few exceptions. Because the structure is uncrowded, they do not bend and so other molecules
and enzymes find it more difficult to bind to them. The shape of the molecule is therefore vital
to its function, much in the same way as the shape of a key is important for the operation of a
lock.
In fact, it is the very fact that they are straight that allows trans fats to solidify at room
temperature. Natural, cis fats are curved and so can't pack into a crystal formation at normal
temperatures. Trans fats, on the other hand, are straight and CAN pack into a crystal formation,
which allows them to solidify at room temperature.
The health implications of trans fats were recognised as early as 1958, when Dr Ancel
Keys reported that he believed that hydrogenated vegetable oils with their trans fats
components were responsible for the sudden and significant increase in ischaemic heart disease
over the previous decade. The response was predictable - the oil manufacturers buried the
research and began the false attack on animal fats.

Trans fats. What are trans fats? Trans fat effects, sources of trans fat
More recently, University of Maryland researched Dr Mary Enig proved in 1978 that the
increased cancer rates were directly associated with total fat intake and vegetable fat
intake but not with consumption of animal fat. Dr Enig, who is a consultant clinician,
specialising in nutrition has since spent the last 25 years warning of the dangers of trans fats
and the relative safety of animal fats.
In fact, even the Harvard School of Public Health has issued a warning regarding the
comsumption of margarines, snack foods and other foods containing hydrogenated oils (and
their trans fats), in favour of butter.
Recognition of the dangers of trans fats
More recently, concern over the role of trans fats in disease has led a number of major food
companies to remove these components from their products. this is probably a response to the
recent FDA ruling that, as of 2006, all food labels must include the proportion of trans fats in
addition to other fat content.
For now, a good guide is the amount of hydrogenated fat, and how high up the list of
ingredients it is. The higher the listing, the more trans fat there is. If you want to be more
specific, add up the listings of the other fats and take it away from the total fat content, the
difference is usually all trans fats.
If this is too much, there are a few simple rules you can use to avoid trans fats. Firstly, avoid
all products that list hydrogenated oil as an ingredient. Secondly, use only natural vegetable oil
or animal-based fats (butter, ghee, lard, dripping) for cooking. If there is not a nutritional label
on the food you buy, refer to the list below for products that are usually high in trans fats.
Foods that usually contain high levels of trans fats:
Pastries and cakes
French fries (unless fried in lard / dripping)
Doughnuts
Cookies / biscuits
Chocolate
Margerine
Shortening
Fried chicken
Crackers
Potato chips
Naturally occurring trans fats have health benefits.
Very occasionally, trans fats do occur in nature. The most commonly known is conjugated
linoleic acid (CLA). Unlike its synthetic counterparts, CLA is known to have many health
benefits, however, these benefits are not in any way shared with the synthetic trans fats
produced during hydrogenation.

Weight management foods. How to control weight
permanently without constant dieting.
Weight management foods.
Weight control has been one of the major
health concerns of the Western World for
many years. Obesity in the UK is fast approaching approaching the
chart-topping statistics of the USA and it's not just the adults that
are getting bigger - child weight management is an increasing
worry.
All this is happening despite the concentration on high
carbohydrate, low fat, low protein diets which we are told are
required for weight management. In fact, the rate of increase is
accelerating, suggesting that this might not be the best way to
control weight at all.

In both the USA and UK, dieticians propose diets that get most of
their energy from carbohydrates, although the proportions vary.
The realities are somewhat different. In the UK the average diet
gets about 44% of energy from fat, 15% from protein and 41%
from carbohydrate. In the USA, the figures are 48% fat, and 26%
each for protein and carbohydrates.

Weight management foods. How to control weight without constant dieting
Returning to your previous diet means that you will return to
your previous shape / size weight - there is no getting away
from it. The only way to overcome this, therefore, is to make a
complete and permanent change to the things that you eat. This, in
turn, can only be achieved if the food you are to eat is attractive,
tasty, varied and enjoyable as well as being nutritious.
Thankfully, this is not hard to achieve, but before we propose the
right way to achieve it, we must first consider what is is that's
wrong with the Western diet.
Carbohydrate craziness.
For many years, dieticians and their ilk have insisted that the ideal
diet is high in carbohydrates. Whilst, in general, most fruits and
vegetables are (when grown on soil that has not been depleted of
its minerals or chemically poisoned) both tasty and nutritious, most
people don't think of these as carbohydrates and instead think of
pasta, bread, potatoes and rice - commonly known as "complex
carbohydrates".
As we have shown, these foods are high glycaemic index (GI)
foods, meaning that they readily convert to blood sugar and
stimulate the release of insulin, which both stops fat metabolism
and encourages fat storage. this situation is made much worse
in the absence of sufficient chromium, which helps insulin to
encourage sugar uptake by the tissues, so reducing blood sugar.
Lack of chromium is known to be one of the risk factors of
developing diabetes.
Note - the body is stimulated to store fat not by eating fat,
but by eating high GI carbohydrates. This is the principle
contributor to obesity on both the USA and Britain, not least
because many people rely these days on fast food and prepared
meals, which not only contain high GI foods, but also sugar and
trans fats, which we will deal with next.
One of the best ways to counter this is to convert to a low grain or
no-grain diet.
Margarine kills - stick to butter!
In addition to eating the wrong type of carbohydrates, many people
also eat not only too little fat, but the wrong kind of fat.
Fats derived from animals are not only completely natural, they
have been part of our diet for millennia. Many of the "unsaturated"
fats sold nowadays, however, have only been in existence for a few
decades and are not natural at all. Top of this list are the trans-fats
that are produced when making hydrogenated vegetable oils.
These trans-fats, created by the very people who started the
cholesterol myth, have been directly linked to both heart disease
and cancer, which cannot be shown for animal fats. In fact, when
proper grass-fed meat is consumed (grain-fed meat has different
nutritional values), we gain many benefits other than just the

Weight management foods. How to control weight without constant dieting
protein and fat content, including vitamins, minerals and trace
elements.
The fats most often missing from the diet are often the most
important. In a recent study, over 25% of all Americans tested had
so little omega-3 fatty acid in their blood that it was undetectable,
despite the fact that this essential fatty acid is one of the main
components of the brain and nerves among many other cellular
functions.
Conclusions
Those who eat a varied diet which is derived from low GI foods,
fresh (preferably organic) fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts,
organically-reared meats and fish, natural fats and adequate
dietary fibre, such as the low grain diet, will not only limit their
susceptibility to disease, but will also have a much more enjoyable
and active life.

able to take place properly and the body would fall into disprepair (otherwise known as disease). Vitamins & Minerals
Consequently, low cholesterol foods and foods that lower cholesterol may actually have a
detrimental effect on many body processes. Blindly using chemicals (because that is what is in
these "foods") to lower cholesterol disregards the actual CAUSE of the problem (for an in-depth
report, see cholesterol) which will almost invariably correct itself if the cause of high cholesterol
is removed.
What are low cholesterol foods?
Some low cholesterol foods are simply foods that have had their cholesterol removed. Whilst
totally unnatural, these are probably the least unhealthy low cholesterol foods. Other low
cholesterol foods have had their healthy, natural fats replaced with unhealthy, unnatural and
downright dangerous plastics known as hydrogenated vegetable oils, which are high in transfats. These are highly dangerous chemicals that are implicated in many fat-related diseases.

A third group of "low cholesterol foods" (or claimed "cholesterol lowering foods") have appeared
in recent years which give similar cause for concern. Many manufacturers have recently
released products that are not only low in cholesterol (which is, of course utterly irrelevant) but
which act chemically in the body to reduce cholesterol levels still further.
Diets
This is not good news for a body that has raised its cholesterol levels - a perfectly natural and
healthy thing for it to do - the body does not increase cholesterol levels for the fun of it - the
cholesterol levels are tightly controlled by the liver and the amount of cholesterol in the blood is
totally unrelated to the amount of cholesterol in the diet (see cholesterol). As a consequence
low cholesterol foods are a complete nonsense and may do more harm than good.

Do yourself a favour, find out more about cholesterol, what it is, what it does and avoid low
cholesterol foods completely!

Cholesterol is an essential component of thousands of body processes, not least the
majority of hormones, especially the sex hormones. Without cholesterol, the processes that
rely on those hormones would grind to a halt, because the lower your cholesterol the less
cholesterol is available for chemical transformation. Unfortunately, cholesterol has been the
subject of much speculation, poor research , vested interests and many, many advertising
dollars, with the result that most people believe that you need to lower your cholesterol.
Unfortunately, it is not as simple as "lower your cholesterol", we have to understand the
principles behind cholesterol lowering and the important factor - who stands to gain when
you lower your cholesterol?
In our review of cholesterol, we have shown that the science behind cholesterol lowering is
fundamentally flawed and that, if you are like most people, you do not need to lower your
cholesterol. Why, simple, your cholesterol isn't the problem in the first place.

Cholesterol is a naturally-occurring fat which is fundamentally required for good health. It is
the precursor to both the male hormone testosterone and the female hormone estrogen,
which cannot be made without it. In addition, it performs many, many other vital functions
in the body.
Diets
Contrary to popular belief, in most people, the levels of cholesterol found in the blood have
little or nothing to do with fats consumed in the diet. Cholesterol is manufactured in the
liver in the amounts required by the body to perform its various functions. It therefore
follows that either reducing the amount of fat in the diet or taking pills to lower your
cholesterol is absolutely pointless.

consequence of which is angina and myocardial infarction (MI, or heart attack) was virtually
unknown at the beginning of the 1900s. In fact, one well-known Doctor, who practised for
many years from the mid-1920's is quoted as saying that he didn't see a single case of MI
for the first 7 years of his practice, yet we've been eating butter and red meat for
thousands of years! How does that suggest you have to lower your cholesterol?
Subsequent examination of those who died of MI showed that their arteries had been
"clogged up" with fatty deposits that were high in cholesterol. The connection between
cholesterol and IHD was made and that was that. Ever since, Doctors have been trying to
invent ways to lower your cholesterol levels, but have not stopped to consider why
cholesterol levels were elevated in the first place! If they had, they might have been
surprised. In order to explain, we need to examine the physiology of blood vessels,
particularly arteries, which we do on our review of cholesterol.
Is it really important to lower your cholesterol?
Having accepted that cholesterol does not CAUSE heart disease, but is merely a symptom,
you could be excused for not deciding to lower your cholesterol at all.

Does it matter that you have "high cholesterol levels"?
Of course it does, but not for the reasons you think. High cholesterol levels signify that you are
deficient in Vitamin C, which is used to repair the continual damage to your arteries. If you
can't fix them, the body needs to do something else and high cholesterol levels show that your
body is using its "reserve" repair material instead of its first choice, nothing more, nothing less.
As explained on our cholesterol page, the issue is not your high cholesterol levels, it is your
dietary lack of vitamin C that causes high cholesterol levels, so stop worrying about your high
cholesterol diet and cholesterol levels and start worrying about your vitamin C intake!

mesothelioma sufferers being told that they have a life expectancy of 8-12 months after
mesothelioma diagnosis. Of course, given that mesothelioma often only appears years after
exposure to asbestos (often up to 30 or 40 years later), many sufferers may be in the
advanced stages of the disease when they are diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Diagnosis of mesothelioma
Diagnosis of mesothelioma is usually made as a result of a pathology report on the
mesothelioma cells. Often, this is used as the basis of choice of one of the various toxic or
destructive "treatments", which, like most cancer treatments, tend to kill patients faster
than the cancer itself!

Vitamin Safety. Just how safe are your supplements?
Vitamin Safety
Health Information
Vitamin safety is a bit of a hot subject. Numeous stories have appeared in the
popular press over recent weeks and months about the safety (or otherwise) of
Natural Health
vitamins and other nutritional products. By these accounts you'd think that
vitamins and their nutritional "colleagues" were super-dangerous, addictive
poisons that cause damage to untold millions every year. So what is the
Glycemic index
truth? And why the scare stories?
Vitamins (and other nutritional supplements) are one of
the few true medical success stories of the last few
decades. Whilst ever more complex "treatments" (i.e. symptom relief) for
common diseases are peddled by the pharmaceutical industry and their obliging "salesmen" in
Doctors surgeries and hospitals, increasing numbers of us have been inconveniencing them by
NOT getting ill, thanks (amongst other things) to appropriate supplementation.
Whilst this is good for us, it doesn't sell medicines, which upsets the pharmaceutical giants and
their shareholders (is it REALLY our "health" they are interested in?).
Consequently, we hear ever more elaborate scare stories about "vitamin safety" designed to
convince us that "Vitamin C causes cancer" or some other such PR effort. The purpose of these
stories is to stop us using supplements and make sure we go to the doctor's for a good old
prescription when we get ill.
So, how do these "dangerous" vitamins stack up against prescription drugs?

Given the attacks on vitamin safety by doctors, the press and even the Government, you would
expect that the safety of vitamins is correspondingly dire - hundreds of thousands of dead,

Fact!
Vitamins DO NOT KILL.
Doctors DO!
So why the scare stories?
The answer is simple.
Medical education, medical prescribing and medical research are controlled by generous grants
from the pharmaceutical industry (we're talking $billions here!), supported by massive
Government lobbying and the dubious connections between Government and the industry.
(Doubtful? Look up what happened when Searle CEO Donald Rumsfeld became head of the FDA
under Bush senior - all of a sudden the company's several-times rejected sweetener, aspartame,
got rubber stamped in less than a week!)
Consequently, the pharmaceutical industry has been trying to work out how to make a profit
from vitamins for years. But how? Vitamins cannot be patented, allowing the usual 20 years of
monopoly at exorbitant prices. Also, there are several VERY large vitamin manufacturers out
there already with mature, satisfied markets.
As a result, Doctors are taught virtually nothing about nutrition,
they are trained that the ONLY question when confronted with an ill
patient is WHICH drug to give them. In short, vitamins are a threat
to the status quo.

Vitamin Safety. Just how safe are your supplements?
The answer: Ridicule.
Faced with REAL competition for the first time, medics and their pharmaceutical partners
combine to pile false accusations of ineffectiveness and danger on the therapies they don't
control. Vitamin safety is brought into question without a shred of evidence to support the
accusations and consumers are deprived of the safe supplements they have taken for decades.
More worryingly, the Governmental lobbying is having an effect. In Europe, the pharmaceutical
companies have succeeded in pushing through an illegal EU directive that hands the control of
vitamins and other supplements over to them, in the process allowing them to increase prices
exponentially.
This is a first step to instigate such a policy WorldWide, with the USA as the next stopoff point.
In short, vitamins are safe. We KNOW vitamins are safe, YOU know vitamins are safe, the
pharmaceutical industry knows vitamins are safe and the Government knows vitamins are
safe.
Doctors don't know ANYTHING about vitamins! (with a few notable exceptions)
If you want to protect your right to use safe, effective vitamins, minerals and other
supplements, you MUST fight these actions. Join the campaign for truth in medicine and fight
the European directive - it wil inevitably lead to similar laws in the USA.

WHAT'S BEHIND CODEX ALMENTARIUS?
Behind the Codex Alimentarius Commission is the United Nations and the World Health
Organization working in conjunction with the multinational pharmaceutical cartel and
international banks. Its initial efforts in the US with the FDA were defeated, so it found another
ally in the FTC. Now Codex, with the FTC and the pharmaceutical cartel behind it, it threatens to
become a trade issue, using the campaign of Operation Cure-All to advance its goals.
Heart Disease

Codex began simply enough when the U.N. authorized the World Health Organization and the
Omega 3
Food and Agriculture Organization to develop a universal food code. Their purpose was to
'harmonize' regulations for dietary supplements worldwide and set international safety standards
for the purposes of increased trade. Pharmaceutical interests stepped in and began exerting

their influence. Instead of focusing on food safety, Codex is using its power to promote
worldwide restrictions on vitamins and food supplements, severely limiting their

the real purpose of this plan? While the stated goal of Codex is to establish unilateral regulations Beast Cancer Bracelets
for dietary supplements in every country, the actual goal is to outlaw health products and
information on vitamins and dietary supplements, except those under their direct
Hydrogenated fats
control. These regulations would supersede United States domestic laws without the American
people's voice or vote in the matter.
Food Additives
HOW CAN IT BE POSSIBLE?
Americans gasp at the thought. It goes against everything America stands for. Many believe this Sunburn
can't be possible. The truth is, it's not only possible, it's required by the Codex Alimentarius
agreement.
Trans fats
In fact, under the terms of the Uruguay Round of GATT, which created the World Trade
Weight Management
Organization, the United States agreed to harmonize its domestic laws to the international
standards. This includes standards for dietary supplements being developed by the United
Nation's Codex Alimentarius Commission's Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary
Use.
The Uruguay Round Agreements carry explicit language clearly indicating that the U.S. must
harmonize to international standards:
"Members are fully responsible under this Agreement for the observance of all provisions....
members shall formulate and implement positive measures and mechanisms in support of the
observance of the provisions.... by other than central government bodies." [WTO TBT
Agreement at Article 3.5]"
In other words, the federal government must NOT ONLY CHANGE FEDERAL LAW, but must ALSO
require state and local governments to change their laws as well to be in accordance with
international law.
Not only that, but Codex Alimentarius is now enforceable through the World Trade Organization
(WTO). If a country disagrees with or refuses to follow Codex standards, the WTO applies
pressure by withdrawing trade privileges and imposing crippling trade sanctions. Congress has
already bowed to this pressure several times and so have the governments of many countries.
While the exemption clause (USC 3512(a)(1) and (a)(2) was created to supposedly protect our
laws from harmonization to international standards, it has proven to be totally ineffective. The
United States has already lost seven trade disputes despite the exemption clause. Due to the
enormous pressures put on them by lobbyists from multinational corporations (who contribute
millions to congressional campaigns), Congress bowed to pressure and changed U.S. laws.
It appears our government (as well as al others) is being manipulated one way or another to
serve the goals of the UN, the World Health Organization and the World Trade Organization.
Food control equals people control -- and population control. Is this beginning to sound like
world government and one-world order? Could this be the real goal behind Codex Alimentarius?

Codex Alimentarius - the REAL threat to World health
The United States, Canada, the Europeans, Japan, most of Asia, and South America have
already signed agreements pledging total harmonization of their laws including food and drug
laws to these international standards in the future.
WHAT CODEX WILL BRING
What can we expect under Codex? To give you an idea, here are some important points:
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
Dietary supplements could not be sold for preventive (prophylactic) or therapeutic use.
Potencies would be limited to extremely low dosages. Only the drug companies and the
big phytopharmaceutical companies would have the right to produce and sell the higher
potency products (at inflated prices).
Prescriptions would be required for anything above the extremely low doses allowed (such
as 35 mg. on niacin).
Common foods such as garlic and peppermint would be classified as drugs or a third
category (neither food nor drugs) that only big pharmaceutical companies could regulate
and sell. Any food with any therapeutic effect can be considered a drug, even benign
everyday substances like water.
Codex regulations for dietary supplements would become binding (escape clauses would
be eliminated).
All new dietary supplements would be banned unless they go through Codex testing and
approval.
Genetically altered food would be sold worldwide without labeling.
According to John Hammell, a legislative advocate and the founder of International Advocates
for Health Freedom (IAHF), here is what we have to look forward to:
"If Codex Alimentarius has its way, then herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies,
amino acids and other natural remedies you have taken for granted most of your life will be
gone. The name of the game for Codex Alimentarius is to shift all remedies into the prescription
category so they can be controlled exclusively by the medical monopoly and its bosses, the
major pharmaceutical firms. Predictably, this scenario has been denied by both the Canadian
Health Food Association and the Health Protection Branch of Canada (HPB).
The Codex Alimentarius proposals already exist as law in Norway and Germany where the entire
health food industry has literally been taken over by the drug companies. In these countries,
vitamin C above 200 mg is illegal as is vitamin E above 45 IU, vitamin B1 over 2.4 mg and so
on. Shering-Plough, the Norway pharmaceutical giant, now controls an Echinacea tincture, which
is being sold there as an over the counter drug at grossly inflated prices. The same is true of
ginkgo and many other herbs, and only one government controlled pharmacy has the right to
import supplements as medicines which they can sell to health food stores, convenience stores
or pharmacies."
It is now a criminal offence in parts of Europe to sell herbs as foods. An agreement called
EEC6565 equates selling herbs as foods to selling other illegal drugs. Action is being taken to
accelerate other European countries into 'harmonization' as well.
http://www.natural-health-information-centre.com/codex-alimentarius.html (3 of 7)4/19/2005 16:20:42
Codex Alimentarius - the REAL threat to World health
Paul Hellyer in his book, "The Evil Empire," states: "Codex Alimentarius is supported by
international banks and multinational corporations including some in Canada, and is in reality a
bill of rights for these banks and the corporations they control. It will hand over our sovereign
rights concerning who may or may not invest in our countries to an unelected world organization
run by big business. The treaty would make it impossible for Canadian legislators either federal
or provincial to alter or improve environmental standards for fear of being sued by multinational
corporations whether operating in Canada or not.
This will create a world without borders ruled by a virtual dictatorship of the world's most
powerful central banks and multinational companies. This world is an absolute certainty if we all
sit on our hands and do nothing."
This is the future the FDA and FTC are striving to bring us via Codex harmonization. Is this a
future we are going to willingly accept or prevent?
WHY TARGET THE INTERNET?
It is no accident that the FDA and FTC are targeting Internet health sites through Operation
Cure-All. We are standing in the doorway of an unprecedented revolution -- the information
revolution brought about by the Internet.
Now all people everywhere have the ability to learn about anything that interests them with just
a few clicks. History has shown that informed, educated people change civilizations -- they
change the flow of thought and they change the flow of money. They can even change the
direction of a country. When similar transitions have happened in the past, the powers that
existed did not give up willingly. The Catholic Church fiercely protected its practice of selling
'indulgences' as a forgiveness of sin. When the practice was abolished, the Catholic Church lost
a great deal of power and money.
When the printing press was invented, books were banned and printers were imprisoned by the
authorities, who feared an educated public could not be governed. In the same way, the medical
monopoly (and the UN) now fears that a public educated in health and privy to the shortcomings
of modern medicine could not be controlled. Loss of control means loss of revenue and loss of
power. And they are doing everything they can to stop progress so they can contain their losses
and strengthen their power.
The printing press changed the world. Can you imagine what life would be like today if the book
banners had their way? But because the printing press won out, society progressed and freedom
was embraced. The Internet is changing the world in an equally significant way. While the entire
Internet can hardly be suppressed, the pharma-cartels and their backers are looking to protect
their interests by restricting as much information as they can on the Internet.
Will we, the people, win out again -- or will the UN and the World Health Organization agenda
and the pharmaceutical cartel change the course of history and take us back to the "dark ages"
of medicine?

Codex Alimentarius - the REAL threat to World health
recent times. The desire to control of vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutritional factors has
ironically come about as a result of the inability of orthodox medicine to destroy the practice of
the public practicing health without drugs. Now government and the chemical industry will seek
to control and profit from that which was available directly to the public in times gone by.
Overturning the Codex by a mass public backlash is CTM’s sworn goal. This can be accomplished
only with large numbers of the public all committed to this endeavor. As the above article
states, the Internet itself has been able to grant access to information freely to anyone seeking
it, and this has destabilized the flow of money and profits to institutions which have traditionally
believed their highly lucrative monopolies to be safe. There can be no more pressing reason to
join the Campaign for Truth in Medicine for FREE than to assist us in pressuring for the
scrapping of Codex.

Vitamin B12, essential for growth, and healthy nervous and immune systems
Vitamin B12
(Cobalamin, cyanocobalamin)
Vitamin B12 (commonly known as Cobalamin or cyanocobalamin) is
probably the best known of all the vitamins, with recognised deficiency
symptoms, most obviously pernicious anaemia (large, immature red blood cells). First
discovered in liver cells in 1948, Vitamin B12 is a bright red, crystalline compound, the colour
coming from the high cobalt content of the molecule.
Being water-soluble, the body is unable to store extensive amounts of Vitamin B12 and must
therefore get a regular supply from the diet. This can be difficult for some people, either
because they absorb vitamin B12 poorly or because their diet is deficient (especially for
vegetarians and vegans). Absorption is dependent on a chemical known as "intrinsic factor",
which is secreted in the digestive juices and facilitates the abosrption of Vitamin B12 by the
small intestine.

Where folic acid intake is sufficient, Vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms can be reduced, although
the deficiency is still present. Additionally, a limited amount of Vitamin B12 is stored in body
tissues, such as the liver and kidneys, which may cause a delay in the appearance of symptoms.
Association with other minerals and vitamins
Vitamin B12 is absorbed best in the presence of several other vitamins, namely Vitamins A, C, E
and the other B-complex vitamins. It is therefore best taken as part of a balanced multimineral
and vitamin supplement.

Most people will benefit from a B12 supplement, of which the most common form is
cyanocobalamin in tablet form. Supplementation of 50 to 2000 mcg per day has been shown to
be safe, although most commonly, doses are from 10-100 mcg per day, with vegetarians
requiring more than nonvegetarians.
Like most other vitamins, Vitamin B12 is best absorbed when taken as a balanced multivitamin
and mineral liquid supplement, which virtually guarantees high absorption and bioavailability.

Vitamin C - preventer of heart disease, high cholesterol and more!
Vitamin C
Vitamin C is undoubtedly the most controversial of all the mainstream
vitamins. As well as being the most supplemented of all the vitamins,
Vitamin C is also probably the least understood (at least by the medical "establishment") and
the vitamin most frequently deficient in Western society.
Health Information
Natural Health
Glycemic index
Many of the roles of Vitamin C are universally accepted - it is an excellent antioxidant, helping
rid the body of damaging free radicals. It is also essential for the prevention of scurvy,
Nutritional supplements
characterised in its acute form by bruising, bleeding gums, poor wound healing and other signs
of blood-vessel damage, which, if left unchecked is rapidly fatal. In addition, Vitamin C is known
Vitamins & Minerals
to be important for the absorption of several other vitamins and minerals.
What is less-well accepted, at least by the pharmaceutical-based modern medical establisment,
is the place of Vitamin C in supporting the immune system and its pivotal role in preventing and
treating heart disease, otherwise known as CHRONIC SCURVY.
Functions of Vitamin C in the body
Many of the functions of Vitamin C are well-known. It is a key component of collagen, the
protein that froms the basic building block of the body needed for connective tissues such as
cartilage, ligament, tendon, skin and bone. Collagen is also one of the major components of our
blood vessels, which we will return to later, in the discussion of heart disease.
Vitamin C also plays a vital role in the immune system, strengthening our ability to fight of
infections. It helps in the absorption of Iron, is a powerful antioxidant and is involved in
countless enzyme pathways. In addition, Vitamin C has powerful effects on the production of
important chemicals for the control of hormones and brain function.

Vitamin C deficiency
Because it is needed by every cell in the body, deficiency of Vitamin C has widespread
consequences. In the short term, acute Vitamin C deficiency leads to scurvy, which can prove
rapidly fatal if adequate Vitamin C is not added to the diet quickly.
Vitamin C deficiency at a lower level leads to irritability, weakness, poor immune system
function, joint pain, bruising, skin problems, fatigue, poor healing of wounds and slower
recovery from infective diseases.
Sunburn
Trans fats
Weight Management
Over the long term, the inablity to repair blood vessels properly leads to the use of cholesterol
as the "band-aid" of the vascular system and eventually to heart disease (see our article,
Cholesterol, Vitamin C and Heart Disease). Similarly, chronic immune system dysfunction
leaves the body open to cancers, and Vitamin C deficiency is particularly associated with cervical
cancer.

Association with other minerals and vitamins
Vitamin C plays a number of important roles in the absorption and metabolism of other vitamins
and minerals. In particular, it is essential for the absorption of iron and it's subsequent
assimilation, and the absorption of other antioxidants.
Effects of vitamin C on other vitamins and minerals
Increases absorption of Iron
Decreases absorption of copper
Affects other antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, Selenium and Vitamin A
Factors which reduce Vitamin C absorption
Although absorption of Vitamin C is not generally affected by other nutrients, the levels of
Vitamin C in food are drastically changed by storage, cooking and preparation.
Just slicing or peeling vegetables exposes the Vitamin C - containing flesh to the air, light or
heat which destroys the Vitamin C content, as does contact with either alkalis or metals.
As you might expect, food processing also causes much of the Vitamin C content of foods to be
lost, which explains why our convenience-food society is so deficient in this vital nutrient.
Factors which increase Vitamin C excretion
Just as important as absorption of Vitamin C is its excretion. There are many things that can
affect this, including infection, stress, smoking, pollution, aspirin or the contraceptive pill.
Intensive exercise, smoking, drinking and pollution all increase the amount of free radical
http://www.natural-health-information-centre.com/vitamin-c.html (3 of 6)4/19/2005 16:20:53
Vitamin C - preventer of heart disease, high cholesterol and more!
neutralization that Vitamin C and the other antioxidants have to do, increasing its elimination
and the need for Vitamin C replacement.
Normal amounts of Vitamin C in the diet
This is a matter of HUGE disagreement and contention. Whilst, since the middle ages, it has
been recognised that small doses of Vitamin C will protect against scurvy, its role in more
modern diseases has been completely dismissed by orthodox medicine.
As a result, most Goverments and regulatory authorities recommend 60-90mg of
Vitamin C per day, which is enough to just about prevent scurvy, but totally useless
otherwise. The man who discovered the link between Vitamin C and Heart Disease, Dr Linus
Pauling (also, the only man EVER to have won the Nobel prize TWICE - no rogue sicentist)
recommended doses of 5,000 to 10,000 mg per day for the prevention of heart disease. Around
60% of this Vitamin C goes to making collagen for the repair of our arteries and other cells,
without it, they cannot function properly!
Doctors will tell you that "if you take that much Vitamin C, you'll just pee a lot of it out".
Absolutely CORRECT - Vitamin C has a very short half-life (the time it stays in the body).
However, due to it's antioxidant properties, the vitamin C that leaves your system will take with
it lots of those nasty, scavenging free radicals that cause cell damage, so not only does it help
repair the cells, it helps stop them getting damaged too!
Sources of dietary Vitamin C
Everyone knows that citrus foods are the best source of Vitamin C, right? Well.....no, actually!
Although you DO get healthy doses of Vitamin C from oranges, lemons, limes etc, it is only half
as much as you find in brussels sprouts, and a quarter of the amount you would find in red
peppers or blackcurrants. For a full list of Vitamin C content in food, see below.

Vitamin C supplements
Vitamin C comes in many supplemental forms, and is added to lots of commcercially produced
foods, especially drinks. Most of this vitamin C comes from corn, but if this is a problem, other
sources are available that are derived from sago.
Most supplements feature Vitamin C in its basic form, ascorbate (or ascorbic acid). Whilst it is
generally well-tolerated and non-toxic, some people may not be able to tolerate large doses o
Vitamin C without some gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea. Other forms are available,
such as sodium, potassium, magnesium or calcium ascorbate. These "buffered" preparations are
generally better tolerated.
The various tablets, capsules, powders, granules and effervescent drinks all deliver their vitamin
C fairly effectively, however, due to the short time Vitamin C stays in the body, it is suggested
that you split your daily amount and take it in at least two separate doses, ideally morning and
night.
In addition, those using high-dose vitamin C should consider taking it a half hour before or after
other vitamins and minerals to maximize the absorption of both.
It is known that Vitamin C and estrogen are eliminated by the same route, so estrogen levels
will remain higher in women taking contraceptive pills as well as high doses of Vitamin C.
People requiring additional Vitamin C.
Whilst virtually everyone would benefit from Vitamin C supplementation, there are some specific
groups who are likely to benefit more than most, namely
●
●
People with heart disease (angina, heart attack, "hardened arteries", coronary artery
disease, other vascular disease, high blood pressure)

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS ) and Sodium Laureth
Sulfate (SLES).
The Killers in your bathroom?
Health Information
Natural Health
Both Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and its close relative Sodium Laureth
Sulfate (SLES) are commonly used in many soaps, shampoos,
detergents, toothpastes and other products that we expect to "foam up". Both chemicals
are very effective foaming agents, chemically known as surfactants.
Glycemic index
SLS and SLES are esters of Sulphuric acid - SLS is also known as "Sulfuric acid monododecyl
ester sodium salt", however there are over 150 different names by which it is known - see
them here. In fact, SLES is commonly contaminated with dioxane, a known carcinogen.
Vitamins & Minerals
Nutritional supplements
Womens health
Although SLES is somewhat less irritating than Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, it cannot be
metabolised by the liver and its effects are therefore much longer-lasting.
A report published in the Journal of The American College of Toxicology in 1983 showed that
concentrations as low as 0.5% could cause irritation and concentrations of 10-30% caused
skin corrosion and severe irritation. National Institutes of Health "Household Products
Directory" of chemical ingredients lists over 80 products that contain sodium lauryl sulfate.
Some soaps have concentrations of up to 30%, which the ACT report called "highly
irritating and dangerous".
Shampoos are among the most frequently reported products to the FDA. Reports include eye
irritation, scalp irritation, tangled hair, swelling of the hands, face and arms and split and
fuzzy hair. The main cause of these problems is sodium lauryl sulfate.
Click here to learn of the possible health effects of SLS/SLES
So why is a dangerous chemical like this used in our soaps and shampoos?
The answer is simple - it is cheap. The sodium lauryl sulfate found in our soaps is exactly the
same as you would find in a car wash or even a garage, where it is used to degrease car
engines.
In the same way as it dissolves the grease on car engines, sodium lauryl sulfate also
dissolves the oils on your skin, which can cause a drying effect. It is also well documented
that it denatures skin proteins, which causes not only irritation, but also allows
environmental contaminants easier access to the lower, sensitive layers of the skin.
Perhaps most worryingly, SLS is also absorbed into the body from skin application. Once it
has been absorbed, one of the main effects of sodium lauryl sulfate is to mimic the activity of

Do not believe that just because a product is labeled as "natural" it is free from SLS or

harmful chemicals as their main active ingredient - check your labels!
The potential effects of SLS on health are discussed here and the NLM's data on the subject
is available here.

Bentonite. Sources of bentonite and bentonite effects
Bentonite, Kaolin, Lanolin
Health Information
Bentonite (sodium bentonite, quaternium-18 bentonite) is a soft, porous
clay that expands to many times its own volume as it absorbs water. Often found in cosmetic
foundations, bentonite's thick consistency enables bentonite to clog pores and suffocate the
skin, preventing normal oxygen transport.
Natural Health
Known health effects of bentonite: Bentonite may block pores, suffocating the skin.
Bentonite has also been linked to asthma and lung injury.
Nutritional supplements
Bentonite has also been linked to Eye irritation, skin irritation, skin drying, defatting. Ingestion
of bentonite has serious health effects which may include death.
Bentonite is commonly found in:
●
●
●
foundation
anti-perspirant

Bentonite can also be found in

Many cosmetic manufacturers add bentonite to their products to attract water from the deeper
layers of the skin to the surface. Whilst this bentonite can "puff up" superficial layers of the

skin, it does so at the expense of dehydrating the lower, living layers of skin, damaging the cells
in the process.

It is through methods like this that bentonite and other chemicals added to "anti-wrinkle"
products do more harm than good and eventually can lead to permanent skin damage.

Talc / Talcum powder
Many people use talc after bathing or to soothe irritated or inflamed skin.
What most people don't know is that there is an inextricable link between
tacl and asbestos, which virtually everyone knows causes cancer. In fact, the two are virtually
chemically identical.
As a consequence, talc manufacturers have played down the link, whilst doing there best to
ensure that their powders contain no asbestos fibres. Unfortunately, this isn't enough.
A 1993 US National Toxicology Program report found that comsetic grade talc, even though it
contained no asbestos-like fibres, caused tumours in animals. It would therefore appear that,
whether asbestos-like fibres are present or not, cosmetic grade talcum powder is a carcinogen
(causes cancer).

Fats. Role of fats, types of fats and fat sources
Fats - natures way of preparing for hard times and the source of the
biggest myth in medicine
Health Information
Vegetable oil, lard, butter, olive oil, cholesterol and many others too
numerous to mention - fats are with us all day, every day - or so it seems. Natural Health
So what are they, what is their purpose and how do they affect health?
Glycemic index
Think of fat and you almost invariably think of being overweight and low-fat diets. Fats,
however, are an essential part of the diet and the oft-missed fact is that most of us aren't
Nutritional supplements
eating enough of them!
Is this too good to be true? Actually no, it isn't. the simple answer is that in the average
Western diet, we consume too little fat overall, but actually the wrong types of fat - and before
you think "here we go again", modern medicine has got it completely wrong - what most of us
need is more natural and saturated fat and LESS of the synthetic plastics known as
hydrogenated vegetable oils or trans-fatty acids. But, we're getting ahead of ourselves - first
things first:What are fats?
Fats (or more correctly, fatty acids) are an essential part of the diet. Contrary to much of what
we seem to hear, they are not confined to meat and animal products, but are also present in
virtually all seeds, nuts and many plants themselves - think of olive oil for an example.
The way in which we refer to fats often belies their true functions - cholesterol, for example is
not only the essential ingredient for both male and female hormones, it also has important
healing functions. Other fats, such as the essential fatty acids DHA and EPA are fundamental to
brain and nerve function.
What do they do in the body?
The simple answer to this is - lots of different things. The way we traditionally think of body fat
is the adipose tissue we gain when we eat too much or eat the wrong things (the second is
much more important than the first).

More properly known as "adipose tissue", this type of fat is the body's way of storing excess

regulates blood glucose levels.
In fact, the reason the body decides to store fat is usually that it has all the carbohydrates

Essential Fatty Acids. Role of EFA's and EFA sources
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)
Health Information
Fatty acids are the building blocks of fats in the same way as amino acids
are the building blocks of proteins. Many can be manufactured in the body
from other fatty acids and by the conversion of sugar in the liver.
Natural Health
Those that can't and therefore must be provided in the diet are called "essential fatty acids".
Glycemic index
Essential fatty acids are divided into two groups, namely Omega-3 and Omega-6. All essential
fatty acids are naturally polyunsaturated, and the 3 or 6 in the name tells you that the first
double bond on the molecule is 3 or 6 carbons from the end.
Nutritional supplements
Vitamins & Minerals
Essential fatty acids that MUST be included in the diet include the following:
Womens health
Linoleic acid (LA) (omega-6)
Arachidonic acid (AA) (omega-6)
Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) (omega-6)
Dihomogamma linolenic acid (DGLA) (omega-6)
Alpha linolenic acid (LNA or ALA) (omega-3)
Eicosapentenoic acid (EPA) (omega-3)
Docosahexanoic acid (DHA) (omega-3)
Whilst the Omega-6 essential fatty acids are abundant in all sorts of vegetable oils and meats,
the omega-3's are much harder to come by. They can be found in oily fish (salmon, mackerel,
trout) as ell as some seeds and nuts, including walnuts, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds.
Unfortunately, however, most of us are not including enough of these items in our diet - if we
are including any at all!

Trans fats
Firstly, you can try to add into your diet the foods that contain Omega-3 essenial fatty acids,
listed above, to which can be added grass-fed beef (grain-fed beef has NO omega-3 content).
In doing this, bear in mind that some Governments, such as the UK are now recommending that Weight Management
you eat no more than 200g of sea-fish a week, due to the levels of the toxins dioxin and
mercury in fish, especially fish livers, where toxins concentrate.
Secondly, and this goes for most people, you should add a high-quality omega-3 supplement to
your diet. Be sure that the fish oil used to produce it is from sources that filter out all the
toxins (we only know of one manufacturer that uses this expensive process, but charges no
more for their oil than others), is PURE Omega-3 and is not diluted with other oils, e.g.
vegetable oils.

antioxidants. Stop free radicals with powerful antioxidant blend.
Antioxidants - nature's "mop-up" squad to counter the "free radical"
menace.
Antioxidants (or free radical scavengers) are potentially THE most
important part of a basic nutrition program. Commonly plant extracts,
these compounds are incredibly important as they circulate in the blood, "mopping up" the free
radicals which cause cell damage and disease.
Health Information
Natural Health
Glycemic index
"Free radicals" are unstable compounds in the body that will "do anything" to become stable,
Nutritional supplements
which they do by stealing an electron from another molecule. In the process they make the
other molecule unstable, and by this method, they cause tissue damage, which must be repaired
to maintain health.
Vitamins & Minerals
Whilst this process is used by the body to destroy bacteria and maintain healthy cells, it can get
out of balance if there are not enough antioxidants (substances that react with free radicals,
neutralising them) in the system, leading to a situation known as "oxidative stress". In this
state, there is more damage being done to cells than the body can cope with and the end result
is disease. Oxidative stress has been linked to everything from heart disease to cancer.
What causes Oxidative stress?
There are many causes of oxidative stress in the body, from ionising radiation (x-rays, over
exposure to strong sunlight) and toxic chemicals (commonly found in everyday cleaning
products , cosmetics and some foods) to dietary deficiencies. Dietary causes include both
consumption of the wrong things - refined sugar and flour, foods high in nitrites (such as bacon
and sausages) and virtually all prepared foods, as well as lack of consumption of natural foods
like fruits and vegetables, which contain natural antioxidants.

So how do you choose an antioxidant?
The simple answer is "more is better". Most modern antioxidant preparations contain a vairety
of compounds which have different effects and durations. These preparations are known as
"broad spectrum" antioxidants as they give an array of different protective properties against a
variety of radicals. Unless you are specifically trying to act against one particular radical, a

There are also some modern preparations of antioxidants that provide intensive, high dose

Carbohydrates. Carbohydrate metabolism and dietary carb facts
Carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are one of the three main types of foods, known as
macronutrients, along with proteins and fats. The Western diet is high in
carbohydrates, both raw and refined. In fact, many health professionals and weight loss
"experts" say we should eat more carbohydrates and less protein and fat.
Health Information
Natural Health
Glycemic index
Unfortunately, it's not quite that simple. Unlike people, carbohydrates are not all created equal.
You may already be familiar with the concept of simple carbohydrates, like fruits and the equally
Nutritional supplements
accepted concept of "complex" carbohydrates such as rice, pasta and potatoes.
Although this is one way to differentiate, we believe there is a much more important method,
which has massive implications for health, weight-management and disease prevention.

But before we get to that (click here if you can't wait), let's start with the basics.
Carbohydrates are generally simple compounds and contain only carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.
They are all eitehr a single sugar (or monosaccharide) or a chain of conected sugar molecules
(or polysaccharides). Simple sugars include fructose, glucose and sucrose, whilst examples of
polysaccharides include starch and gums. The difference between simple sugars is purely the

of the body to control blood sugar in known as diabetes.
Beast Cancer Bracelets
Diabetes is increasing in the UK and USA at an incredible rate and is already blamed for using
Hydrogenated fats
over 10% of all health care resources. Recent estimates suggest that within the next 20 years or
so, this will increase to 30% of ALL health care costs. Clearly something has to be done about
Food Additives
this.
In fact, it's really quite simple, but requires a change in approach from the authorities and a
recognition that fat intake isn't the only important thing in weight control (diabetes is closely
associated with obesity).
Sunburn
Glycaemic index (glycemic index if you are in the USA)
Weight Management
Trans fats
Glycaemic index is the term used to determine how quickly carbohydrates release their sugar
into the blood. Some carbs release their sugar very quickly and cause blood sugar to "spike"
sharply, whilst others release their sugar more slowly, elevating sugar to a lesser degree but for
a longer time.
This is important, because the body regulates the level of blood sugar through a complicated
series of chemicals and hormones, the principle one of which is insulin. High blood sugar
stimulates release of lots of insulin, which makes the liver convert sugar to fat. (and you
thought it was fat intake that counted....read on)
Diabetes is caused by the repeated release of increasing amounts of unsulin as the tissues get
used to it and begin to respond to it less and less, creating insulin resistance. This is the first
step to diabetes, in which the pancreas (where insulin is made) "gives up" and stops insulin
production altogether. The result is a total loss of control of blood sugar - diabetes. (click here
for more information on diabetes, how to prevent it and natural treatments)
Glycaemic index (GI) is explained in more detail here, but it should be clear from even the bief
explanation above that it can have a major impact on health. Not only can diabetes be caused
by consumption of too much high GI foods, it is this and NOT over consumption of fats that
is responsible for the increasing level of obesity seen in the Western world, especially
obesity in children.
Conversely, it is quite possible to minimise both your weight and your chances of developing
diabetes by keeping a close eye on the GI of what you eat. People who eat a low GI diet,
especially a low-grain diet stand a significantly reduced risk of these, and other diseases.
Carbohydrates have come in for a bashing lately, mostly because of the Atkins diet. This radical
diet proposes cutting out carbs together and replacing them with protein. Whilst this can be
effective in radically reducing weight, it can also be very dangerous.
As a rule, diets are a bad idea anyway, as they are usually followed by a return to your previous

Grass-fed beef. Why you should insist on beef from cows fed on grass.
Grass-fed meat.
Why you should insist on it.
Have you ever seen a cow in a field?
What was it eating? Wheat - no! Barley - no! Oats - No!

Undoubtedly, if you saw a cow in a field, it was eating grass. Grass
is what cows are built to eat. It is what their digestive systems are Nutritional supplements
designed to digest. It is what gives their meat the properties that
nature designed it to have. Grass-fed cows are natural cows.
Vitamins & Minerals
It may not seem so to us, but grass is pretty nutritional stuff.
Common sense says that if you can build cows, sheep, goats and
much larger animals entirely from grass, it must have a lot of
nutrients in it. After all, that's where the name "grazing" animals
comes from isn't it?
When cows (or virtually any other grazing animal for that matter)
are fed on grass, the nutrients from the grass are passed on into
the tissues. One of the most important of these is Omega-3 fatty
acid - one of the nutrients in which Americans, in particular are
most deficient.

A recent study showed that over 25% of the Americans

tested had so little omega-3 fatty acid in their systems that
it was undetectable. This is a serious problem. Omega-3 is an
essential fatty acid, meaning that it can't be made by the body from Cancers
other fats and MUST be ingested in the diet. the other essential
fatty acid type, Omega-6 is found in abundance in the Western diet.

Opinions on the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 vary, but it is
likely that the closer it is to 1:1, the healthier the effect. The
average American diet has a ratio of around 15:1, Britons are a
little better a8 9:1, followed by Europeans at about 5:1. Even the
Japanese, arguably the healthiest nation on Earth can only manage
3:1.

The reason we bring this up here is that omega-3 fatty acid is found

in beef and animal fat - but ONLY when the cow has been fed
on grass, i.e. it is 100% grass-fed beef. Grain-fed cattle (apart
from the other problems modern farming introduces) contain little
Hydrogenated fats
or no omega-3 in their meat or fat, leading to the types of
imbalance that are typified by the American and (to a lesser extent)
Food Additives
UK diets.
It is these imbalances (along with the propaganda of the vegetable
oil industry) that have spawned the "saturated fat", "cholesterol"
and associated "low-fat" regimes that are so popular today, based
on totally flawed scientific logic and incomplete data.
Saturated fat intake does not increase cholesterol levels.

Grass-fed beef. Why you should insist on beef from cows fed on grass.
These are controlled by the liver, which will produce a much as the
body needs.
High cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, it is a sign
of nutritional deficiency, namely lack of Vitamin C.
Unsaturated or polyunsaturated vegetable oils are much
worse for you than natural, saturated fat.
Only once medicine and the general public understand these facts
will both be able to move beyond the dogma of the last 50 years
and improve health rather than treating symptoms. The
conversion of all beef to grass-fed beef would be a good start.
