Are You Eating GMO Foods..Probably!

What are GMOs? GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. Genetically modified (GM) foods are food items that have had their DNA changed through genetic engineering. Unlike conventional genetic modification that is carried out through time-tested conventional breeding of plants and animals. Combining genes from different organisms is known as recombinant DNA technology, and the resulting organism is said to be “genetically modified,” “genetically engineered,” or “transgenic.” GM products include medicines and vaccines, foods and food ingredients, feeds, and fibers. For example, corn and soy are modified with a gene from a BACTERIA to resist pests. The problem is that they shoot the gene into the DNA of these plants randomly. This de-stabilizes the DNA and the effects on the body are RANDOM. A study just came out showing that this BACTERIA gene is able to transfer to the bacteria in YOUR OWN GUT, so that your gut now is a … Continue Reading

Alert: Protein Drinks and Heavy Metals

We purchased 15 protein powders and drinks mainly in the New York metro area or online and tested multiple samples of each for arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. The results showed a considerable range, but levels in three products were of particular concern because consuming three servings a day could result in daily exposure to arsenic, cadmium, or lead exceeding the limits proposed by USP. We found that three daily servings of the ready-to-drink liquid EAS Myoplex Original Rich Dark Chocolate Shake provides an average of 16.9 micrograms (µg) of arsenic, exceeding the proposed USP limit of 15 µg per day, and an average of 5.1 µg of cadmium, which is just above the USP limit of 5 µg per day. Concentrations in most products were relatively low, but when taking into account the large serving size suggested, the number of micrograms per day for a few of the products … Continue Reading

Are energy drinks hazardous for your health?

JACKSONVILLE, FL — Energy drinks are a monster business, according to Beverage Digest, bringing in 6.9 billion dollars in business last year. But are they safe? Adverse reaction reports to the Florida Poison Information Center control in our area have gone up more than 400 percent in one year and one Florida mom says what her son didn’t know about the caffeine content may have contributed to his death. Cheryl James constantly relives the night her world changed forever.  “I told everyone you better hit your knees and you better pray hard. And I was screaming for Drew to fight.” Her 19 year old son Drew and his friends had been hanging out. Lance Colbert remembers, “We were just standing out there talking and his head went back.” Jason Mullins was also there. “When he passed out, he fell straight back and started having a mini seizure.” Cheryl never had … Continue Reading

No Joy in Soy

By Ahmed Serag Some great resources on Soy! America’s favorite health food is complete garbage. You could stop reading the post right here, and that’s all you would need to know. Just make sure to donate all the soy foods in the cupboards instead of throwing them away. Warning: This post is going to be straight to the point and it’s going to disgust some people, but Im trying to spread knowledge on what this harmful “food” is doing to you. Heres why: Soy just seems to be part of the whole “picture” of health. Eat low-fat, use soy products, and exercise a couple hours a day. That doesn’t even sound appealing typing it right now! People don’t even eat soy because they like it; they eat it because they think they will like the body they get because of it. Except soy won’t give you a “dream body”, or … Continue Reading

Cancer Update from…Who the hells cares…it is good info!

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY (‘TRY’, BEING THE KEY WORD) TO ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY . Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins : 1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size. 2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime. 3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors. 4. When a person has cancer it indicates the … Continue Reading
