The New Personalized USDA Food Pyramid - A lot has changed!

Below you will find a way to build your own USDA Diet Pyramid based on age, sex, height, weight, and level of physical activity. The emphasis from the USDA is now grains, vegetables and fruit. The meat and bean group for my personal criteria ended up being only 5 to 5.5 ounces depending on my exercise level. That includes nuts, seeds, peanut butter, and all legumes, as well as meat, fish and poultry. This is quite different from the old food pyramid we grew up with. If we're not careful to watch our intake we can use up our entire day's worth of food from this category in one sitting.

This is really fun to do for the kids. A few months ago, I printed a bunch of different ones for the pre-schoolers in our homeschool group and was able to personalize them for each child with their names on them.

I don't necessarily endorse all of the recommendations on the pyramid, but it is a big improvement from the old one and will result in improved health. Have fun!

The little strip of paper that can save your life for less than $10 - Test your Ph!

Conversations between an oncologist and a woman with an inoperable cancer tumor:

The woman asked him these questions after he pumped her full of chemo and radiation and then gave her a death sentence anyway. However, the tumor disappeared within about two months of her making diet changes, and he still thought she would die. That was eight years ago and she remains cancer-free (full story on: http://www.hacres.com/testimonies/testimonies.asp?TestId=1421):

My first question: Is it true that if I have an alkaline pH level, cancer cannot survive in my body?

My oncologist said: That’s true.

My second question: Is it true that if I have a lot of oxygen in my body, cancer cannot survive?

My oncologist said: Yes, that’s true.

My third question: Is it true that cancer feeds on sugar?

My oncologist said: Yes, that’s true.

Here is an easy way to test your Ph levels at home:

Water should have a healthy Ph level but most waters are too acidic. Here's a cheap solution for alkalizing your water and helping to keep your body alkaline:
Body Rescue pH Protector Drops
http://www.vitacost.com/body-rescue-ph-protector-drops/?atf=1

By the way, potassium bicarbonate and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) help make your body more alkaline. The ideal way to make your body alkaline is through diet, but this remedy can help save your life while you are transitioning to an alkaline diet. Of the two, potassium bicarbonate is better because you avoid excess sodium. Some people are using 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon per day in a glass of water for maintenance. Others are using higher quantities temporarily for quick healing as recommended by their alternative doctors. I use it on occasion when my Ph gets acidic after indulging in animal products. My Dad told me that my grandmother in Cuba used baking soda daily in her water and is now in her 90s without any major illness.

So what should your Ph test strips be showing? Well, there are many different opinions on this. The only thing everyone agrees on is that blood ph needs to be between 7.35-7.40.  However, when it comes to urine ph and saliva ph you will find so much opposing info. Many so-called health experts say that both uring and saliva need to be at 7.4 just like the blood, and then they try to sell you equipment to make your urine more alkaline, like water ionizers. So far the most logical explanation I've seen is in the article below, which says that "In people with vibrant health, normal urine pH is about 5.8; normal saliva pH is about 7." The doctor who wrote this article says that the urine is the mechanism by which the kidneys remove acid from the blood to protect it. And that saliva reflects our alkaline reserve. Therefore, they need to be different. For the past several years since I jumped on the health bandwagon this is where I've been testing, but I thought that something was wrong with me because my urine ph was too low based on the 7.4 claim. Now I can relax. It really does make so much sense!

Organic pasta from Amazon.com with free shipping (great prices) and some are gluten-free

I just bought these recently and am very happy with them. They are much cheaper than at Publix and health food stores. Also, the variety of these grains are not even available at Publix. These are great supergrains without fillers like corn flour, etc. I will probably try other grains in the future, but in the meantime these are the best ones so far. Quinoa is gluten-free. Kamut is not gluten-free but contains a different kind of gluten than whole wheat that is much more digestible and can be tolerated by many people who cannot tolerate regular gluten.

DENTAL RELATIONSHIP TO Hormone Imblalances and other Illnesses (serious stuff)

http://www.awakeninghealth.com/index.asp?id=16

DENTAL RELATIONSHIP TO HORMONE IMBALANCES

In Germany, England and many other countries, the teeth can be a focal disturbance and the cause of any disease including fibroids, cysts, tumors and endocrine problems. The teeth are energetically connected to organs and glands through an acupuncture meridian correspondence. Hormones can be severely affected by root canals, abscesses, dissimilar metals, mercury toxicity and a bio incompatibility of dental materials. Therefore, it is important to address all dental stress on patients.


http://tuberose.com/meridians.html
Teeth
Every organ and every part of your body is directly linked to a specific tooth or area of the mouth via these meridians, or energy highways. This connection is so strong that a biological dentist can often accurately "guess" your dental history simply by reviewing your physical symptoms. Root canals create disturbing energetic roadblocks in the body which short-circuit essential pathways leading to the breakdown of proper organ function. If a person has a weak organ, a root canal performed on the associated meridian tooth will make it more problematic. Balancing and strengthening the organ can allow a person to handle it temporarily.

http://www.greggmckenzie.com/pages/DoctorRay.html

The Mouth

The mouth is a source of ill health in three distinct aspects. Firstly and quite obviously, Mercury Silver Amalgam fillings, secondly, root canal operations and more generally tooth removal.

Amalgam fillings are a no-no and the white resin ones should be used instead. If molars need refilling you might have to go the whole hog and pay for porcelain inserts to be made and cemented in with white resin. Mercury is the most toxic metal known to man, yet the word is that when combined with silver, it bonds so tightly that nothing can escape. Well that's shite! Mercury has a 'half life' of forty years - that means as much as half may have decayed and been released as vapour in this time. Sure, it's combined with silver before going into the mouth but much of it will still decay over the years. Dr. Ray's research shows that the safe level of mercury exposure permitted in industry in a 40 hour week can be achieved in 10 seconds of chewing! If you have more than eight fillings, you must be checked to see if your immune system has responded to mercury toxicity. Again, you can't trust your Doctor or Dentist on this one as they have been lead to believe that mercury can be tolerated and in the case of Dentists, most have spent their entire career putting the stuff in, believing it to be safe! Dentists themselves are exposed to Mercury vapour as they mix it there in front of you in a small mortar and pestle. Dentists have the highest level of alcoholism, suicide and broken marriages in the medical profession!

I grew up in New Zealand where every primary and intermediate school has a Dental clinic right there on the school grounds. But it turns out that most of the dental nurses were qualified with only a diploma and were 'practising' putting fillings in children who were genuinely considered 'not be able to perceive pain'. I've seen this in writing! I was certainly able to perceive pain! The nickname for the dental clinic in N.Z. Schools is 'the murder house' and I have memories of endless drilling and pain! Remember, this is the days before high speed drills and Novocain. From the age of nine until fifteen I had no fewer than twenty three amalgam fillings put in my mouth by these Morons. After Orthodontic braces at twelve and a half I'd also had the front four Molars removed leaving me with 28 teeth and 23 fillings! At age 15 my physical problems began and my behaviour had also flipped out and I was expelled from school. I could have been a genius but I was relegated to sweeping out school busses, counting sheets of paper, marking out the running lanes on the sports field etc. etc. all during school time. At 13 I was tossed out of the school orchestra for two weeks while they did a tour of the north island, only to be asked back in on their return. I remember when I was 14 that a bunch of us tough, difficult kids were sent off for three days to a camp in the forest solely to clean up and paint the place. Now that's what I call edumacation!

The second cause of ill health through the mouth is root canal operations. These are where the dentist considers the nerve feeding the live tooth to be dead and so carves out a cavity, inserts a post and then remounts the original tooth in place. Big mistake! Teeth are alive and when you place them back in the mouth without the nerve feeding them, they turn grey, then black with bacteria and die. The minute passageways through the tooth, of which there are ten of thousands, change from being oxygen enriched or aerobic, to being anaerobic. That's why the teeth turn grey and this, in turn, is a continual source of bacteria which is breathed in. My brother's dentist was real clever. He drilled through the back of three of his front lower teeth and scooped out the nerves, putting in tidy little mercury/amalgam fillings. Well Stewart now has three grey (and getting blacker) front teeth which are a source of ill health for him and not too pretty either! A root canal operation should entail remodelling a porcelain replacement tooth and the original should never be put back in place.

The third source of ill health through the mouth is subtle but real. When we eat, the nerves are stimulated by chewing and each tooth (in it's matching quadrant) connects with eight meridians in the body. It may be okay to have the odd tooth removed but when you remove four of the same teeth e.g. the four front molars, you entirely remove the stimulation gained from chewing on that particular tooth's nerve and its corresponding meridian. Orthodontic braces, as I had when I reached puberty, normally requires removal of these front molars to make room for the front teeth to be pulled back. That means the stomach/bladder meridian gets zero stimulus. I've had stomach problems over the years but most crucially, at the age of 13 I started biting my fingernails but so seriously that they bled and caused pain. But quite inexplicably (until illuminated by Dr.Ray) I've gone for the fourth digit real bad! I have now for 27 years chewed this nail on both hands right back to the quick (sp?)! I have fingerprints formed 4 or 5 millimetres over the end of each finger but even further on the fourth digit. And I wish I could stop! The way your teeth meet when you close your mouth has a large bearing on your posture and physical gait. Most of my pain over the last twenty five years has been skeletal and muscular and I can't help but think that if these idiots weren't allowed to tinker with my mouth, much of it could have been avoided. I also feel that my teeth have gone back to their original position after the braces anyway! The treatment virtually bankrupted my (solo) mother and gave me two years of hassle at school. So consider it very carefully before believing the dental nurse and forcing it on your own young ones!

Common Medications Cause Elderly to Lose Thinking Skills - (it includes Zantac, Detrol, and certain high blood pressure meds)

Common Medications Cause Elderly to Lose Thinking Skills
From Natural News.com

A commonly prescribed class of drugs may cause elderly patients to slow down both mentally and physically, researchers from Wake Forest University School of Medicine have found.
Drugs in the anticholingeric family prevent the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from binding to nerve cells. This slows down communication between the cells in the brain. The drugs are used to treat a variety of conditions, including acid reflux, high blood pressure, Parkinson's disease and urinary incontinence.

In one study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, the researchers found that residents of nursing homes who were taking both dementia medication and an anticholingeric incontinence drug lost mental function 50 percent faster than patients taking only the dementia drugs.

"Over a year's time, the decline we observed would represent a resident going from requiring only limited assistance in an activity to being completely dependent," researcher Kaycee M. Sink said.

All study participants had taken dementia drugs known as cholinesterase inhibitors, which increase levels of acetylcholine in the brain. Yet 10 percent were also taking a urinary incontinence drug in the anticholingeric family.

"The two drugs are pharmacological opposites," Sink noted.

In a second study, presented at the annual meeting of the American Geriatrics Society in Washington, D.C., the researchers examined the physical effects of anticholinergics on elderly patients. They found that seniors who took anticholinergics were more likely to have more trouble walking and to walk more slowly than seniors not on the drugs.

"The results were true even in older adults who have normal memory and thinking abilities," Sink said. "For older adults taking a moderately anticholingeric medication, or two or more mildly anticholingeric medications, their function was similar to that of someone three or four years older."

The anticholinergics being taken included nifedipine (a blood pressure drug marketed as Adalat or Procardia), ranitidine (an acid reflux drug marketed as Zantac) and tolterodine (an incontinence drug marketed as Detrol).

Dangerous ingredient in store-bought almond milk (almost all of them) and most soy milk (including Silk and Greenwise) and many other processed products like ice cream, hot dogs, frostings, dressings, sour cream, chocolate milk, candy, toothpaste, etc.

Unfortunately, convenience always ends up costing us in the long run. We need to form a support group for those of us finding the desperate need to go back to the old-fashioned way (God's way) of doing things.

Carrageenan, a common food additive, is one of the ingredients in store-bought Almond milk (all brands, except Silk) and soy milk and some coconut milks, including Silk. It is known to cause inflammation and gastrointestinal issues and may promote growth of cancer tumors, and my kids and I all get stomach cramps from it. The FDA considers it safe! We need to start ditching the store-bought ones and go back to making it ourselves. Just make sure that the raw almonds (which are now all pasteurized actually) are from a good source and have not been pasteurized with chemicals.

3 Great Almond Milk recipes - Yum!:

By the way, I would consider using Carob instead of cocoa for the chocolate almond milk recipe. It may not be as yummy, but it is a healthier alternative.

What's wrong with Carrageenan:

Here's what Dr. Blaylock says about carrageenan (Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life; pg. 196):

Quote
Carrageenan is a rather new additive. It is a complex polysaccharide extract made from seaweed, and is used as a binding agent. Experimentally, carrageenan is used as an agent to induce intense inflammation in experimental animals. A recent study found that when carrageenan was injected in animals along with a cancer-causing chemical, tumors appeared more rapidly and in significantly higher numbers than in control animals injected with carcinogen alone. The same was seen when human breast cancers were implanted in animals along with carrageenan: the combination made the tumores grow faster and spread more widely than in control animals. As a result, carrageenan is classified as a tumor promotor.

A web search turned up the following information:

Review of Harmful Gastrointestinal Effects of Carrageenan in Animal Experiments
Joanne K. Tobacman
College of Medicine, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, USA

Abstract
In this article I review the association between exposure to carrageenan and the occurrence of colonic ulcerations and gastrointestinal neoplasms in animal models. Although the International Agency for Research on Cancer in 1982 identified sufficient evidence for the carcinogenicity of degraded carrageenan in animals to regard it as posing a carcinogenic risk to humans, carrageenan is still used widely as a thickener, stabilizer, and texturizer in a variety of processed foods prevalent in the Western diet. I reviewed experimental data pertaining to carrageenan's effects with particular attention to the occurrence of ulcerations and neoplasms in association with exposure to carrageenan. In addition, I reviewed from established sources mechanisms for production of degraded carrageenan from undegraded or native carrageenan and data with regard to carrageenan intake. Review of these data demonstrated that exposure to undegraded as well as to degraded carrageenan was associated with the occurrence of intestinal ulcerations and neoplasms. This association may be attributed to contamination of undegraded carrageenan by components of low molecular weight, spontaneous metabolism of undegraded carrageenan by acid hydrolysis under conditions of normal digestion, or the interactions with intestinal bacteria. Although in 1972, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration considered restricting dietary carrageenan to an average molecular weight > 100,000, this resolution did not prevail, and no subsequent regulation has restricted use. Because of the acknowledged carcinogenic properties of degraded carrageenan in animal models and the cancer-promoting effects of undegraded carrageenan in experimental models, the widespread use of carrageenan in the Western diet should be reconsidered. Key words: carcinogenesis, carrageenan, carrageenase, diet, furcelleran (furcellaran) , hydrolysis, inflammatory bowel disease, nutrition, poligeenan, promoter, sulfated polysaccharide. Environ Health Perspect 109:983-994 (2001) . [Online 24 September 2001]

A bit on degraded and undegraded carrageenan from:
http://www.edenfoods.com/articles/view.php?articles_id=82

Quote
There are two types of carrageenan, undegraded (food-grade) and degraded (hydrolyzed with acid). Undegraded carrageenan has been used on a huge scale in food production worldwide since the 1930s, and its safety has been assured by the FDA Gras status.
---------------------------

I also recommend avoiding brands of soy milk that contain the thickening agent carrageenan, a seaweed derivative, which I believe may be harmful, especially to the intestinal tract. If you are watching your weight, look for low-fat products.
Andrew Weil, M.D.

Interestingly, over the last five years, scientists have begun to explore the possible anti-inflammatory actions of St. John's wort. In a recent study, researchers decided to test St. John's wort on an animal model of acute inflammation. They injected carrageenan, an inflammatory substance, into the lung cavity of mice. This caused an acute inflammatory response characterized by fluid accumulation in the pleural cavity and a build up of various markers of inflammation. All these markers of inflammation were attenuated by St. John's wort. In addition, the carrageenan triggered increased production of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB), an inflammatory substance, in the lung. St. John's wort significantly inhibited NF-kappaB. The researchers concluded that St. John's wort extract potently reduces the development of acute inflammation.15

Food-junk and some mystery ailments: Fatigue, Alzheimer's, Colitis, Immunodeficiency.

Carrageenan enters even the intact, uninflamed gut, and damages both chemical defenses and immunological defenses. When it has produced inflammatory bowel damage, the amount absorbed will be greater, as will the absorption of bacterial endotoxin. Carra-geenan and endotoxin synergize in many ways, including their effects on nitric oxide, prostaglandins, toxic free radicals, and the defensive enzyme systems.

Years ago, I noticed that Oregon was one of the few states that still had real whipping cream and cottage cheese without additives, so I have been trustingly using cream in my coffee every day. Last week, I noticed that my cream listed carrageenan in its ingredients. Over the years, I have avoided carrageenan-containing foods such as apple cider, hot dogs, most ice creams and prepared sauces and jellies, because they caused me to have serious allergic symptoms. Carrageenan has been found to cause colitis and anaphylaxis in humans, but it is often present in baby “formulas” and a wide range of milk products, with the result that many people have come to believe that it was the milk-product that was responsible for their allergic symptoms. Because the regulators claim that it is a safe natural substance, it is very likely that it sometimes appears in foods that don’t list it on the label, for example when it is part of another ingredient.

In the 1940s, carrageenan, a polysaccharide made from a type of seaweed, was recognized as a dangerous allergen. Since then it has become a standard laboratory material to use to produce in-flammatory tumors (granulomas), immunodeficiency, arthritis, and other in-flammations. It has also become an increasingly common material in the food industry.

Mulberry extract supplements ameliorate the inflammation-related hematological parameters in carrageenan-induced arthritic rats.
Author: Kim,-A-J; Park,-S
Citation: J-Med-Food. 2006 Fall; 9(3): 431-5

Abstract:
Mulberry fruit (Morus Lhou Koidz.), a rich source of the major anthocyanin, cyanidin 3-glucoside (C3G), has traditionally been used for the treatment of inflammatory conditions including rheumatic arthritis. In this study, we evaluated the efficacy of orally administrated methanolic mulberry fruit extract (ME) in carrageenan-induced arthritic rats, based on previously observed in vitro antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. A significant attenuation of hind paw inflammation characterized by fluid accumulation, uric acid production, and rheumatoid factors induced by carrageenan was observed following the intake of both ME (50 mg/kg of body weight) and C3G (10 mg/kg of body weight). Moreover, alterations in hematological parameters such as serum triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and atherogenic index following carrageenan administration were partially reversed by the administration of ME. It is concluded that dietary mulberry fruit extracts elicited protection against carrageenan-induced inflammation.

How to Live With A Carrageenan Sensitivity
By tracydo, eHow Member

That yummy frosting might contain carrageenan.
For the past few years I thought I was lactose intolerant, however even switching to soy milk didn’t seem to alleviate my problems. I was fine with Lactaid milk, unless I dumped in a bunch of Nestle’s Quick chocolate and then it was painful cramps and diarrhea time. Sometimes I would have ice cream and be fine, other times I would eat it and be chained to the bathroom afterwards. I began to suspect I had irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and did some research on Dr. Weil’s excellent website www.drweil.com. He recommended that IBS sufferers avoid foods or products that contain the additive carrageenan. Sure enough, I checked my soy milk, the ice cream I had eaten, Nestle’s Quick, and they all contain this thickener. If you suspect you might be sensitive or allergic to carrageenan, here are some tips:

Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions

Step 1
Tell Your Doctor – You might be allergic to carrageenan or you might be experiencing symptoms of other diseases like Celiac’s or Crohn’s. Your doctor should be able to test for the carrageenan allergy as well as rule out any other related dangers.

Step 2
Read Lables – If you aren’t already doing this, now is the time. Carrageenan is a popular thickener made from boiled down Irish moss (sometimes labeled as Irish Moss or Rock Moss) and can be found in a whole slew of products including toothpaste, frozen dinners (e.g. Weight Watchers Smart Ones), sour cream, frosting, dressings, ice cream (e.g. Ben & Jerry’s), chocolate milk, soy milk (e.g. Silk), lunch meats, soups, and candy. Keep a close watch on what you add to your shopping cart!

Step 3
Eat at Home More Often – The only way to really have control over what you have for dinner is to make it yourself. There are plenty of carrageenan free foods out there to choose from and you should be able to make all of your favorite dishes with little worry about contamination (as long as you check the labels!).

Step 4
Surf The Web – Many restaurants (especially chain ones like Panera) are aware that their customers have food allergies and are willing to list the ingredients for their meals. Scout out the ingredients on some of your favorite restaurant dishes and be prepared when you order. You can try asking the waiter/waitress if an item contains carrageenan but most of the time this is met with a blank stare (“cara-whatsa?”). You might try carrying around a card with the word carrageenan printed on it so the waitperson can take it back to the kitchen to check ingredients lists.

Step 5
Relax – Unlike giving up gluten, nuts, or soy… carrageenan is relatively easy to forgo. Try to focus on the positive. Sure, I miss ordering sour cream in restaurants or eating Ben & Jerry’s from the pint, but there are plenty of other choices (thank you Haagen-Daz!).

Dear NaturalNews readers,



I'm convinced our modern world is not only crazier than we think, but crazier than we can possibly imagine.



Take the news over these past for days, for example: The state of Minnesota orders a parent to poison her 13-year-old boy with chemotherapy because the court believes chemo is the *only* treatment for cancer that works (parental rights be damned). And the media goes along with it!



Then that's followed by a BBC report that says doctors are now insisting that ALL people older than 55 years old be put on toxic blood pressure drugs, regardless of their health status (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8057850.stm). I guess doctors are no longer necessary, huh? Just push pills onto everyone, regardless of a diagnosis.



Then you've got the Massachesetts Senate now passing a police state law that gives them the right to break into your private home and arrest you at gunpoint if they suspect you are infected with swine flu (http://www.infowars.com/swine-flu-martial-law-bill-clears-massachusetts-senate/).



And now, add to all that today's astonishing NaturalNews feature story: Soy protein is contaminated with a toxic chemical solvent that's a byproduct of gasoline refining. The chemical? Hexane.



It's found in soy protein that's used in infant formula, protein bars, "veggie" burgers and other soy products. It's a neurotoxin that could be very dangerous to the health of you and your children.



I consider it "America's melamine." Read the full details of this extraordinary breaking story here:

It's really not worth "dying to look good!"

All diseases begins in the blood. If the blood is pure, we are healthy. If the blood is not pure, we are diseased. The life of the flesh, the life of man, is in the blood. All the organs feed from the blood. The organs appropriate from the blood the specific nutrients they need to remain healthy. If those nutrients are not present or have been altered synthetically, the organs will malfunction and we will become sick. The life is in the blood. In Scripture Christ reveals to us the dyer importance of keeping the blood pure. If we pollute the blood, which feeds the body, we are defiling the temple of God, which we are.

God has much better options for us than the world does. It is absolutely unnecessary to accept the synthetic products that the world is pushing on us when healthy, affordable alternatives are widely available now. Nowadays, you can even find organic cosmetics and personal care products at places like Wal-Mart at great prices. Even better, shop online at the great discount warehouses below, but make sure to run your selections against the cosmetics database first because many "so-called" natural products are not always so natural. A couple of years ago, I ran every product in my house against the database and made shopping changes accordingly. I had been using natural products for the previous six years but the database helped me to fine tune my purchases for optimal safety (i.e. I stopped buying natural products that listed fragrance, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium benzoate, etc. as ingredients). It took several hours of work initially but once I was done, I had acquired tons of knowledge that helped me identify safe options for my family now and in the future. I rarely have to visit the database now since I memorized most of the important hazard scores, but on occasion I run into a new product that sounds great and will go there to check it out. Here's a good rule of thumb: If you can't pronounce a word on the ingredient list, beware! That goes for food products too. Here is a handy wallet size Shopper's Guide to Safe Cosmetics (http://www.ewg.org/files/EWG_cosmeticsguide.pdf).

Teen Girls' Body Burden of Hormone-Altering Cosmetics Chemicals
Adolescent exposures to cosmetic chemicals of concern
By Rebecca Sutton, Ph.D., Staff Scientist, September 2008



The 20 teens we tested had an average of 13 hormone-altering cosmetics chemicals in their bodies.Laboratory tests reveal adolescent girls across America are contaminated with chemicals commonly used in cosmetics and body care products. Environmental Working Group (EWG) detected 16 chemicals from 4 chemical families - phthalates, triclosan, parabens, and musks - in blood and urine samples from 20 teen girls aged 14-19. Studies link these chemicals to potential health effects including cancer and hormone disruption. These tests feature first-ever exposure data for parabens in teens, and indicate that young women are widely exposed to this common class of cosmetic preservatives, with 2 parabens, methylparaben and propylparaben, detected in every single girl tested.


In Alex (Washington DC): 12 hormone-altering cosmetics chemicals. "It's frightening to learn about the many different kinds of toxic chemicals that can be found in my body. At the same time I would much rather be knowledgeable about my body's chemical makeup than uninformed; in this case, ignorance is NOT bliss."This work represents the first focused look at teen exposures to chemicals of concern in cosmetics, exposures that occur during a period of accelerated development. Adolescence encompasses maturation of the reproductive, immune, blood, and adrenal hormone systems, rapid bone growth associated with the adolescent "growth spurt," shifts in metabolism, and key changes to brain structure and function. Alterations in an array of sex hormones, present in the body at levels as low as one part per billion (ppb), or even one part per trillion (ppt), guide this transformation to adulthood. Emerging research suggests that teens may be particularly sensitive to exposures to trace levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals like the ones targeted in this study, given the cascade of closely interrelated hormonal signals orchestrating the transformation from childhood to adulthood.



Study teens use more personal care products daily than an average adult woman

Source: EWG product use surveys.
During this window of vulnerability to toxic assault, adolescent girls typically experiment with an increasing number and variety of body care products. Teen study participants used an average of nearly 17 personal care products each day, while the average adult woman uses just 12 products daily. Thus, teens may unknowingly expose themselves to higher levels of cosmetic ingredients linked to potential health effects at a time when their bodies are more susceptible to chemical damage.

Cosmetics and other personal care products are an alarming example of government and industry failures to protect public health. Federal health statutes do not require companies to test products or ingredients for safety before they are sold. As a result, nearly all personal care products contain ingredients that have not been assessed for safety by any accountable agency, and that are not required to meet standards of safety. To protect the health of teens and all Americans, we recommend action:

The federal government must set comprehensive safety standards for cosmetics and other personal care products.
Teens should make healthy choices for themselves by reducing the number of products they use, and by using our Shopper’s Guide to Safe Cosmetics to select safer products. (http://www.ewg.org/files/EWG_cosmeticsguide.pdf)
Companies must reformulate products to protect consumers from exposure to potentially toxic chemicals, untested ingredients, and noxious impurities.

More Organic gluten-free pasta info.

I finally found the page to order gluten-free Norquin organic quinoa and brown rice pasta, but it's pricey:
http://www.quinoa.com/store/show_category/4

You can get gluten-free organic brown rice pasta at Health Hut and Amazon.com from Tinkyada brand.

If you ladies ever come across the organic quinoa and brown rice combo any cheaper please let me know.

Sami's Bread ingredients and other millet bread recipes that are gluten-free

These are the ingredients in the Sami's gluten-free, yeast-free bread. Unfortunately, it costs $5.99 (unless you order in bulk directly from Sami's Bakery) and is not made in a gluten-free facility, so there ultimately is some gluten in there. I copied the following recipes from a blog where people were trying to make similar bread. I will try one or two of them and use an egg replacement. Also, the brown rice flour needs to be organic due to high-pesitide issues in rice. I'm hoping to buy a Blendtec HP3A (similar to a Vitamix 5200) in the near future and will be able to grind the grain into flour myself. My primary desire for the Blendtec is for making green smoothies, but I found out how easy it is to grind the grain into flour and knead the dough in it too (bunch of other uses as well: (www.blendtec.com). I fould out that they just switched to a new plastic in their carafes that are BPA-free, but only the black model currently has it. The other models should have it sometime this summer.

Blessings,
Miriam

Sami's Bread:
organic millet flour
brown rice flour
water
aluminum free baking powder
sea salt
organic grounded flax seed


Recipe 1:
I've been playing with millet and came up with this recipe for something like cornbread. I'm on a very restricted diet (Sears elimination) right now so no refined sugar, no eggs, no gluten, no milk.

1 1/2 c. millet flour (sifted)

1/2 c. arrowroot flour

4 heaping tbs pear butter (or can use 1/4 c. sugar or apple sauce)

2 tsp. baking powder (I use a recipe that combines baking soda, cream of tartar, and arrowroot flour)

1/2 tsp salt

1 c. water

1/4 c. vegetable oil (I used sunflower)

1 tbs psyllium husks mixed with 3 tbs water (warning this is also a laxative and so may have some side effects)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 8 or 9 inch sq. pan. Combine dry ingredients. Stir in water, oil, pear butter, and psyllium husks/water mixture until moistened. Pour into pan and bake or 20-25 minutes or until brown (I used a toothpick to test for doneness).


Recipe 2:
I am so glad I came across this site. I too have a 7 year old who can not tolerate:

eggs, nuts, wheat, milk, soy, as well as a host of other things. I have found the bread "Food for Life" Millet bread (can be found at Whole Foods or ordered online) is an excellent gluten free bread. Also, have found the book, Hidden Food Allergies, to be incredibly helpful as far as supplements my child needs to help her body absorb minerals/vitamins better, etc. I have also taken her to an acupuncturist who specializes in a technique called NAET, Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. It is a technique that is difficult to understand from a scientific viewpoint but I have seen it work wonders with my daughter. She can now eat a little wheat without problems.

I bought a cook book that might help you parents with young kids. It is "The kid-frienly ADHD & Autism Cookbook" The Ultimate guide to the gluten-free, casein-free diet. by Pamela J. Compart, MD and Dana Laake, RH, MS, LDN. I bought it for the recipes, have yet to try any but thought it might help some of you. It also comtains recipes with no glluten, milk, soy, egg, corn and nuts. Hope it helps.

I found this recipe for Hunza Millet Bread on the internet

1 c. millet flour
1 c. grated carrors
1 T honey
1 T sea salt
1 T vegetable oil
2 eggs

Combine in bowl flour, crrots, oil, honey and salt.
Mix well, then stir 3/4c of boiling hot water into the mixture. Beat egg yolks well, adding 2 T. cold water. Continue to bet and then add to the mixture. Fold in stiffly beated egg whites and bake in a hot oiled pan -at- 350 for 40 min.



Recipe 3:
I just now found this recipe so have not had the chance to try it. Hope it will be a good one.

Ingredients

¼ pint / 150ml water or milk

1 or 2 eggs

1 large banana

4 oz / 100g millet flour

4 oz / 100g rice flour

1 tsp / 4g bicarbonate of soda

½ tsp / 2g cream of tartar

salt to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil

Beat the banana to a smooth pureé with the milk andegg. This is best done in a liquidiser.

Mix all the dry ingredients for the bread together with a tablespoon of oil .

Fold the flour mixture into the pureé. Do not overmix and do not leave to stand at this point or you will lose the light structure tothe bread dough.

Pour the batter, 1" or 2cm deep, into a shallow 10" square baking tray lined with non-stick baking parchment.

Cooking

Preheated oven

gas mark 7 425°F 220°C

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes.

Always check that a loaf is cooked by using a skewer through the middle. The loaf is not cooked until the skewer comes out clean. A part cooked loaf can be turned over on the baking tray to ensure even cooking.

Back to plastic? Reusable grocery bags may cause food poisoning

http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/theappetizer/archive/2009/05/20/back-to-plastic-reusable-grocery-bags-may-pose-public-health-risk.aspx

I like one of the blog comments made below the article about using Hemp bags instead of nylon. Here's the comment:
"Using those Nylon re-usable bags is equal to using about 80 plastic bags. It's tougher and can be re-used, yes, but it's still made from Oil.

Folks, you should be using re-usbale bags made from hemp. Hemp is naturally anti-microbial and doesn't suffer the issues mentioned above to the same degree. Hemp is 8 times stronger than cotton, and can be washed over and over.

I have about 5 Hemp re-usable shopping bags and they are in fine form. They get washed once a month and I can guarantee you that there is no bacterial contamination.

This article points to the fact that we have to maintain our re-usable bags. Just use your common sense - if your bag is smelly or you can see things in it, it probably needs a wash. If you can afford to switch to Hemp bags, do it. It's the best re-usable shopping bag that you can use."

Great Natural Headache Soother and Best Sunscreen I've ever found

Headache Soother:
A friend recently asked me about natural alternatives to headache medicine. I have not tried this yet, but it has great ingredients and Badger is a fabulous brand (I recommend their sunscreen). I rarely get headaches, but many years ago I tried something similar to this, and the headache disappeared faster than I could realize the product was working. Hopefully, this one will be as good or better.

Brain Power Smoothie * * * *
(Recipe from www.hacres.com)

Approx 6 to 8 ounces of organic apple juice, almond milk, or rice milk

1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries or other frozen organic fruit (frozen is optional)

1 to 2 rounded tablespoon of Nutritional Essentials Vanilla flavor (I only use 1 Tbs. to save money; get it from http://www.1inhealth.com/products/nutritional.htm and let them know that Miriam Moss referred you)

2 to 3 tablespoons of freshly ground organic flax seed or the Hallelujah Acres B/Flax/D supplement. (I use 1 Tbs. of Bob's Red Mill Organic Golden Flax Seed or Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseeds from www.Luckyvitamin.com)

Also very helpful, add 200 mg of DHA (the contents of 1 or 2 capsules) for the first month and then reduce to 100 mg (I don't add this part to the smoothie but give them a separate food-based supplement that is high in omegas)

1 ripe banana blend and enjoy twice daily. (I use 1/2 banana)

NOTE: Fresh raw apple juice or raw almond milk must be used for this to be a 4 star recipe. Canned or bottled juices are cooked, and would make this a 3 star recipe.

Regarding Nutritional Essentials, it's $28 for a 35-serving container without auto-ship on the website. It's $25.20 if you go on auto-ship. Call 1-800-626-5143 to order on auto-ship or on the website for single purchases.

Great testimony about the smoothie (excerpt from the Hallelujah Acres Newsletter):
“All or Nothing”

by Dennis Daniel

Even Small Changes Yield Health Benefits

The power of a smoothie

We have found, in many instances, that

making only a minor diet change can result

in improved health. I can give you a good

example. A couple of friends of mine have

a son who was diagnosed with ADHD. He

was prescribed Ritalin. After taking the

drug for some time, his behavior showed

no significant improvement. After

attending a God’s Way to Ultimate Health

seminar at Hallelujah Acres and learning

about the “brain power smoothie” recipe

on our website, they decided to serve one

of these to their son every morning. Even

though the young man was addicted to the

SAD (Standard American Diet) he enjoyed

the taste of the smoothies because they

were made with (among other ingredients)

fresh blueberries and a vanilla-flavored

supplement called Nutritional Essentials®.

Within days, my friends reported that their

son’s teachers began to telephone them and

ask what new “medication” he was on. Not

only was his behavior much improved, so

was his concentration and overall work

ethic. Many of his teachers stated that they

were certain the Ritalin did not cause his

rather sudden improvement because most

children tend to become overly relaxed,

perhaps even lethargic, under the influence

of this particular medication. Their son, on

the other hand, had begun to show more

interest in his schoolwork and his

interaction with other children had become

much more pleasant. Keep in mind that

this young man’s parents did not change

his entire diet; they simply began serving

him a fruit smoothie.

Was this young man on the Hallelujah

Diet? To the degree that a particular need

in his life was addressed, we could answer

“yes.” Although he changed only a minute

portion of his diet, he experienced an

improvement in his overall health.

Houston's Veggie Burgers recipe - Out of this world!

Note:
Add bread crumbs to make it hold together better (get a brand that has wholesome ingredients or make your own using a food processor).
Use organic Barbecue Sauce that does not contain high fructose corn syrup or sodium benzoate.
Use Kosher Sea Salt, Celtic Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt instead of regular Kosher salt.
Instead of egg white I use 1 Tbsp. ground flax seed simmered in 3 Tbsp. water.
The jalapeno pepper is optional. I've never used it.

Other Egg Replacement ideas:
There are plenty of egg substitutes available for baking or preparing a dish that calls for eggs. Ener-G Egg Replacer is a reliable egg substitute for use in baking. It is available at health food stores and most grocery stores.
Tofu: Tofu is great for egg substitutions in recipes that call for a lot of eggs, like quiches or custards. To replace one egg in a recipe, purée 1/4 cup soft tofu. It is important to keep in mind that although tofu doesn’t fluff up like eggs, it does create a texture that is perfect for “eggy” dishes.
Tofu is also a great substitute for eggs in eggless egg salad and breakfast scrambles.
In Desserts and Sweet, Baked Goods: Try substituting one banana or 1/4 cup applesauce for each egg called for in a recipe for sweet, baked desserts. These will add some flavor to the recipe, so make sure bananas or apples are compatible with the other flavors in the dessert.
Other Egg Replacement Options
• 1 egg = 2 Tbsp. potato starch
• 1 egg = 1/4 cup mashed potatoes
• 1 egg = 1/4 cup canned pumpkin or squash
• 1 egg = 1/4 cup puréed prunes
• 1 egg = 2 Tbsp. water + 1 Tbsp. oil + 2 tsp. baking powder
• 1 egg = 1 Tbsp. ground flax seed simmered in 3 Tbsp. water
• 1 egg white = 1 Tbsp. plain agar powder dissolved in 1 Tbsp. water, whipped, chilled, and whipped again
Egg Replacement Tips
• If a recipe calls for three or more eggs, it is important to choose a replacer that will perform the same function (i.e., binding or leavening).
• Trying to replicate airy baked goods that call for a lot of eggs, such as angel food cake, can be very difficult. Instead, look for a rec ipe with a similar taste but fewer eggs, which will be easier to replicate.
• When adding tofu to a recipe as an egg replacer, be sure to purée it first to avoid chunks in the finished product.
• Be sure to use plain tofu, not seasoned or baked, as a replacer.
• Powdered egg replacers cannot be used to create egg recipes such as scrambles or omelets. Tofu is the perfect substitute for eggs in these applications.
• If you want a lighter texture and you’re using fruit purées as an egg substitute, add an extra 1/2 tsp. baking powder. Fruit purées tend to make the final product denser than the original recipe.
• If you’re looking for an egg replacer that binds, try adding 2 to 3 Tbsp. of any of the following for each egg: tomato paste, potato starch, arrowroot powder, whole wheat flour, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, instant potato flakes, or 1/4 cup tofu puréed with 1 Tbsp. flour.

The Dr. Oz Bait for Vaccines: Why Did He Do It?

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/10/13/Dr-Oz-Helps-Shill-the-Flu-Vaccine.aspx

ALGAE: Critical to your BRAIN HEALTH!.......... My family and I are consuming it. Are you and yours?

I think I know now why Jesus spent so much time on or near the sea. I recently saw Dr. Vitori lecturing on this important topic. Here is what he had to say:
Dr. Natale Vitori, world renowned scientist, explained the incredible science of Fucoidan and Brown Seaweed extract. Around since pre-historic times, Fucoidan has created mechanisms to protect itself. It is a complete polysaccharide with tremendous anti-viral*, anti-inflammatory*, anti-flu*, tissue regenerative*, and neuron protecting properties*.
Purdue University tested the purity of Fucoidan in the eXfuze brand of products by conducting a molecular weight analysis, chromatographs, composition analysis and other tests. Present in every bottle of eXfuze products are four critical complex sugars that are ONLY available from ingesting algae! These complex sugars are critical to your brain health.

More details:
THE SCIENCE
Dr. Marcus Kuypers, Dr. Joe Guarnera, Dr. Gary Booth, Dr. Natale Vitori, and Dr. Ahmed shared their professional opinions on the eXfuze brand of products and all concluded that "The eXfuze brand of products provide the raw materials to the body to help the body heal itself*."
Each of the doctors acknowledged the damaging effects of inflammation on all of the body's systems. Thankfully, eXfuze has products that can help the body protect itself, heal itself, regulate itself, and maintain itself*.
This was demonstrated through several scientific studies that have been completed in reputable university laboratories such as the University of Miami, Brigham Young University, and Purdue University.
Dr. Gary Booth of Brigham Young University conducted independent studies that show empirical data as to the effectiveness of the eXfuze brand of products on human cells. Dr. Booth's studies showed that 80%+ of abnormal cells died when Seven+ was introduced! As Dr. Booth said, "WOW!!!"
Dr. Booth also says that the studies show that Seven+ is very bio-active on free radicals and is loaded with anti-oxidant activity!

Scientific Lab Testing results on eXfuze Seven+ by major universities - "WOW!!!," said Dr. Booth of BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY who tested it without telling eXfuze first

It all started when Dr. Gary Booth's wife came home with a bottle of Seven+ and asked him to try it. He asked her how it worked, and since she didn't know, he took it to his lab to find out for himself. After running some of his tests, he called the eXfuze corporate office and said, "Do you realize what you have here? Wow!"
By the way, Dr. Vitori (mentioned below) is not only a world renowned scientist, but he is 1 of only 5 scientists in the world in his league.
The information below is just the beginning. The doctors are planning more scientific testing and have already sketched some ideas.
I personally saw the slides showing the test results and praised Jesus for putting this in my life two years ago when I was ready to give up on my health and was overwhelmed with all my diseases! It changed my life dramatically, but I cannot express how encouraged I am by so many of you whose lives have also been changed by it. Thanks for coming back to me with all your wonderful feedback, especially those of you who keep discovering new benefits even after a year, and for sharing the free bottle website with your loved ones too.
God bless you all!

Why are the Japanese throwing away their eyeglasses and smiling more?

Why are the Japanese throwing away their eyeglasses and smiling more?: Check out clinical studies on Vinpocetine for improvement of vision/hearing, brain function, and more (AMAZING SUCCESS RATES!) & the NEW eXfuze Super Seven+ with Vinpocetine


Dear Friends and Family,
I found out tons of amazing scientific information at the eXfuze conference, including University research (Brigham Young University, Purdue University, and University of Miami) proving the tremendous effectiveness of the original Seven+ in helping the body heal itself. These include "independent" studies by Dr. Gary Booth of BYU showing empirical data as to its effectiveness on abnormal breast cells and cervical cells, and even more exciting evidence on the new products. I don't have time right now for all of it, but here is one tidbit.
When eXfuze expanded into Japan about a year ago, they gave the Japanese people a spiced-up version of Seven+ called Super Seven+ due to their long work days and hectic schedules (many of them work 18 hours per day). It is the same as the U.S. version except for three things: 5 times more Fucoidan, increased ionic minerals, and new Periwinkle extract (Vinca Minor with Vinpocetine). The testimonials I heard from the Japanese people were awesome, including one lady who came to the conference and no longer wears eyeglasses at all! I was jealous listening to her testimonial since the original Seven+ helped me and several of my friends/family to obtain improved vision (my eyeglass script was cut in half by 1 point in each eye), but we didn't get rid of our eyeglasses altogether yet.
The great news is that Super Seven+ is now available to U.S. distributors in travel packs, which are also great instant energy drinks due to increased brain blood flow, with none of the problems found in typical energy drinks like stimulants and other harmful substances that mimic energy and damage the adrenal system. They are available via your distributor website or in glass bottles if ordered from the Japanese catalog (call Customer Service if you don't read Japanese...LOL).

Here is what makes Vinpocetine so exciting!:

Vinpocetine
Vinpocetine is a new addition to the class of “smart drugs,” a class which have a specific effect on the chemical reactions that go on inside cells, to invigorate the brain and make it work normally. Vinpocetine, when taken regularly allows the brain to make better use of oxygen and energy.
The brain accounts for only 2% of total body weight, however it receives between 15% to 20% of the blood, in order to enable it to receive energy from the sugar glucose.
The brain only has small reserves of energy, and they can be expended within a minute, if they have to be used.
This means that proper brain function depends upon good blood flow, oxygen and glucose supply.
Vinpocetine’s Effects
Vinpocetine is able to intensively increase blood supply to the brain.
Vinpocetine improves the use of oxygen by the brain, and therefore its abilities to resist damage due to a lack of oxygen.
Vinpocetine has the following features;
(A) Is effective when taken orally.
(B) Selectively improves blood supply to the brain.
(C) Does not cause slowed heart rate or low blood pressure.
(D) Increases the use of oxygen by the brain.
(E) Increases the tolerance of the brain to a lack of oxygen.
(F) Increases vasodilatation due to a lack of oxygen.
(G) Enhances the use of glucose by brain cells.
(H) Increases ATP levels in the brain.
(I) Stops blood from becoming thick.
(J) Raises the amount of serotonin, which has an activating effect on the brain.
(K) Is non toxic, even when dosages are several times higher than those normally used.
(L) Is not harmful to the central nervous system.
Medical Trials
It has been proven by using a variety of methods, in a large number of medical studies and with thousands of people, that Vinpocetine improves blood circulation, oxygen uptake and glucose utilization by the brain.
The degree to which the chemical reactions of the brain are improved depends upon the level of oxygen in the brain. Vinpocetine has its first effect on damaged areas of the brain and has been proven to produce positive effects for at least 70% of its users.
The main areas in which Vinpocetine have been used are brain disorders, treatment of the signs of aging, defects of the eye, ear, nose and throat problems.
Healthy Individuals
A study of 12 healthy female volunteers who took Vinpocetine in dosages of 10mg, 20mg and 40mg daily was crossed referenced to a group on placebos.
On the third day of treatment a number of tests were undertaken, in order to determine the levels of memory. In all of the Vinpocetine treated group, memory was found to have been significantly improved especially so for those taking 40mg daily.
It was expected that even better results would be seen if treatment was continued for longer periods.
Brain Disorders
Studies have reported that patients using Vinpocetine have shown improvement in 60% to 70% of cases after at least one month of therapy. Regular use of Vinpocetine can perform improvements in all of the following symptoms:
- Dizziness, Numbness
- Poor co-ordination, Tinnitus
- Unstable blood pressure, Mild paralysis
- Speech disturbances, Vertigo
- Poor concentration, Bad memory
- Headaches, Poor hearing
- Shoulder stiffness, Neck stiffness
- Poor sleeping, Anxiety
- Mood instability, Insomnia
-Depression, Irritability
In the healthy older person with no mental decline, Vinpocetine can give very good results.
Eyes and Ears
In the course of treating a group of over 800 patients for eye problems, a 71% improvement rate was obtained. The eye problems treated included macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. Vinpocetine improves the blood flow to the retina of the eye, eye sight is often improved, studies showed that 88% of those taking Vinpocetine, noticed an improvement in their vision.
Vinpocetine has also been used to treat ear problems such as presbyacusis (hearing loss due to old age), and cochleovestibular neuritis (inflamed nerves in the ear). The beneficial effects of Vinpocetine are due to an increased blood supply to the inner ear, the nerve and to the cortex of the brain.
Conclusion
Vinpocetine is a truly unique product in having so many brain enhancing effects. None of the other brain enhancers available have so many multiple effects. It is Vinpocetine’s blood flow improvements and its abilities to improve oxygen supply to the brain, which enables the brain to make better use of its energy and nutritional supplies.
The brain protecting and activating effects of Vinpocetine explain how the drug protects and enhances memory and thought processes. Vinpocetine can be used to treat the signs of senile dementia or mental decay. It can be used to treat poor blood circulation in the brain and progressive strokes. Vinpocetine can treat some symptoms of menopause, eye problems, ear and hearing
difficulties and dizziness.
Dosages and Side Effects
The Japanese have carried out extensive studies into the best dosages for Vinpocetine.
