Several Tidbits

Hi everybody,

Here are a few quick tidbits we thought you’d like…

SODA = FAT– A 10-year study of 2,400 girls published in the February 2006 edition of the Journal of Pediatrics showed that an increase in soft drink consumption was definitely linked with an increase in obesity.

NATURAL CANCER KILLERS- Capsaicin, the ingredient that makes hot peppers hot, caused tumors in the prostate glands of mice to “self destruct” (Cancer Research – March 15, 2006). The mice were given what would be 3-7 hot peppers three times a week for humans.

In related news, a team of scientists from the University of Pennsylvania is working on cancer vaccines made from Listeria monocytogens, a bacteria naturally found in milk. This bacteria successfully eradicated several types of “rapidly growing tumors” in mice. The interesting thing is that you get this bacteria naturally from raw, unpasteurized, non-homogenized, organic (no hormones or antibiotics) milk. So why not get this protection the way our ancestors did? Consume it in healthy, raw milk!

PSYCHOTIC KIDS (or SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS CAMPAIGN?)- According to studies done at Vanderbilt, the number of kids on anti-psychotic drugs has quintupled between 1995 and 2002. Either our kids are becoming more and more mentally incompetent (from exposure to toxins and lack of healing nutrients in their foods) or the Pharmaceutical Industry has successfully turned even normal childhood problems into profitable diseases. Or maybe a little of both.

ANTIBIOTICS and LYMPHOMAS- A new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology (Nov. 15, 2005) found a “striking correlation” between antibiotic use and the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). This is yet another good reason to use antibiotics only when absolutely needed, and another good reason to get them out of our food supply by eating organic meat that hasn’t been treated with antibiotics or hormones.

ONLY THE REAL THING WILL DO- A new report from Finland published in the November, 2005 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed, once again, that synthetic, fractionated vitamins and minerals, created by scientists in a lab, do not do as well as the real thing. In this particular study, bone mass was studied among young girls who were given various forms of Calcium supplementation and then compared with girls who simply consumed high calcium foods, like dairy. Only the group that got their nutrients naturally showed improvement in bone mass.

Hope this helps,
