Ideally, food is your “medicine.” It’s certainly one of the best preventive strategy I can think of, and getting more raw organic foods and healthy fats in your diet are key considerations.

However, while any type of whole food is better than none, some choices can give you more bang for your buck than others.1

For example, while lettuce is a staple in most people’s homes, even if they don’t eat a whole lot of vegetables in general, and many may even spend the extra money on organic lettuce, there are far more cost-effective ways to get higher quality nutrients into your diet.

Below are 17 of my personal favorites in no particular order, with some added cost-saving and nutrition-boosting tips thrown in along the way.

1. Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon

Research suggests eating clean fish like salmon, sardines or anchovies once or twice a week may increase your lifespan by more than two years and reduce your risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by 35 percent.2

However, the devil’s in the details, and when it comes to salmon, it’s quite crucial to buy the right kind.

What you’re looking for is wild-caught Alaskan salmon. Steer clear of all farmed and genetically engineered varieties.3 Virtually all salmon marked “Atlantic salmon” comes from fish farms, and researchers have shown farmed salmon may be one of the most toxic foods in the world.

Levels of healthy omega-3 fats are also reduced by about 50 percent in farmed salmon compared to wild salmon, due to the use of grain and legume feed.

Canned salmon labeled “Alaskan Salmon” is a cost-effective way to buy salmon, as it is far cheaper than whole salmon steaks. If you’re not a fan of salmon, you can get many of the same health benefits by eating anchovies or sardines, ideally canned in water rather than olive oil, as inferior grades of olive oil are typically used.

2. Avocado

In addition to being an excellent source of healthy fats, avocados also have other unique health benefits, including enhancing your body’s absorption of nutrients and inhibiting production of an inflammatory compound produced when you eat beef.4

They also contain compounds that inhibit and destroy oral cancer cells,5,6 and being very high in potassium avocados will help balance your potassium to sodium ratio.

Avocados are one of the safest fruits you can buy conventionally-grown, so you don’t need to spend the extra money for organic ones. Their thick skin protects the inner fruit from pesticides.

Another cost-saving measure is to keep them refrigerated. If you buy unripe avocado in bulk when they’re on sale, storing them in the fridge will significantly slow down the ripening process and save a bundle.

Simply place however many you want to use within the next day or two on the counter, and they’ll rapidly ripen.

3. Sprouts and Microgreens

Many of the benefits of sprouts and microgreens relate to the fact that, in their initial and early phase of growth, the plants contain more concentrated amounts of nutrients.7,8,9

As a result, you need to eat far less, in terms of amount, compared to a mature plant. Sprouts may be harvested within just a few days or a week of growth, while microgreens10 are typically harvested after two to three weeks, when they’ve reached a height of about 2 inches.

Essential fatty acids heighten and the protein quality of several vegetables improves when sprouted. Sprouts can also contain up to 100 times more enzymes than their full-grown counterparts, and help protect against chemical carcinogens.11 Watercress may be the most nutrient-dense of all.12,13

Sprouts and microgreens are easy and inexpensive to grow at home. They’re a particularly excellent choice during winter months, when outdoor gardening is limited or ruled out.

Another major benefit is that you don’t have to cook them. A simple way to dramatically improve your nutrition is to swap out lettuce for sprouts and/or microgreens in your salad, or on burgers, sandwiches or tacos.

Even a few grams of microgreens per day can “entirely satisfy” the recommended daily intake of vitamins C, E and K.14

4. Broccoli

Research shows this cruciferous veggie may reduce your risk for many common diseases, including arthritis, cancer, heart disease and more.

When you eat broccoli, you’re getting dozens of super-nutrients that support optimal, body-wide health, including fiber, the anti-cancer compounds sulforaphane15,16,17,18 and glucoraphanin,19,20 anti-inflammatory and free radical quenching phenolic compounds21,22,23 and immune-boosting diindolylmethane (DIM).24,25

Three servings of broccoli per week may reduce your risk of prostate cancer by more than 60 percent.26 Sulforaphane also helps raise testosterone levels, inhibits the retention of body fat, helps detox carcinogens27 and helps protect your muscles against exercise-induced damage.28

Ideally, choose raw broccoli, as frozen broccoli has diminished ability to produce sulforaphane. The enzyme myrosinase,29 which converts glucoraphanin to sulforaphane, is quickly destroyed during the blanching process.30

Even better, opt for broccoli sprouts, which can contain 20 to 50 times more chemoprotective compounds than mature broccoli.31,32

When using raw broccoli, steaming it for three to four minutes will optimize the sulforaphane content. Do not go past five minutes. If you want to boil your broccoli, blanch it in boiling water for no more than 20 to 30 seconds, then immerse it in cold water to stop the cooking process.

The sulforaphane content can be further optimized by eating it with mustard seed, daikon radishes, wasabi, arugula and/or cole slaw.33

5. Onions

Onions are another potent anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer food. Recent research shows people with the highest consumption of onions have a lower risk of several different types of cancer.34,35,36,37

Research has also revealed that the stronger the flavor of the onion, the better its cancer-fighting potential. In one analysis,38,39 shallots, Western yellow and pungent yellow onions were the most effective against liver cancer. The latter two were also particularly effective against colon cancer.

Onions also contain compounds known to protect against cardiovascular disease and neurological dysfunction or decline. They also help prevent obesity and diabetes, in part by inhibiting certain enzymes in your digestive tract, and by supporting healthy blood sugar control.

Antioxidants are most concentrated in the outer layers of the onion, so peel off only the outermost paper-like layer. Overpeeling can reduce important antioxidants and chemoprotective compounds by as much as 75 percent.40

On the upside, the anti-cancer compound quercetin does not degrade when cooked over low heat. Store whole, dry bulbs in a cool, dry, dark place with plenty of air movement to maximize shelf life.

6. Spinach

Spinach is also rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants, vitamin K1 (good for your veins and arteries), magnesium and folate, the latter of which is important for short-term memory and helps lower your risk for heart disease and cancer by slowing down wear and tear on your DNA. It also contains more potassium than banana.

One caveat and contraindication: If you have calcium oxalate kidney stones, spinach is on the list of foods to strictly avoid, as it is high in oxalate. Also keep in mind that boiling the spinach will leach valuable nutrients like vitamin C into the water. After 10 minutes of boiling, three-quarters of the phytonutrients in spinach will be lost, so you’re better off eating it raw, or lightly steamed or sautéed.

7. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil provides a mix of medium-chain fats, including C6, C8, C10 and C12 fats, the latter of which (lauric acid), is most well-known for its antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties.

The shorter-chained MCTs, on the other hand, are more readily converted into ketones, which are an excellent mitochondrial fuel. Ketones also help suppress the hunger hormone ghrelin, and coconut oil has been shown to aid weight loss and improve your HDL to LDL cholesterol balance.41

My new book, “Fat for Fuel,” explains many of the health benefits associated with a diet high in healthy fats, including coconut oil. Indeed, the ketogenic diet, featuring low net carb and high fat intake, has been shown to be beneficial for many chronic health conditions, including cancer, and can significantly improve your chances of weight loss.

One way to save money on coconut oil is to buy it by the gallon. Big box stores like Costco also tend to have better prices on such bulk items. Unlike other healthy oils such as olive oil, coconut oil is very resistant to oxidation that occurs once you open the jar or apply heat, so buying in bulk is not a major concern.

8. Fermented Cabbage

Cabbage tends to be inexpensive, and you can supercharge its health benefits by fermenting it, thereby also significantly extending its shelf life. The fermenting process produces copious quantities of beneficial microbes that are extremely important for your health, as they help balance your intestinal flora and boost your immunity.

These beneficial bacteria can even help to normalize your weight, and play a significant role in the prevention of type 2 diabetes, depression and other mood disorders.

9. Organic, Pastured Eggs

Free-range or pastured eggs are a relatively inexpensive and amazing source of high-quality nutrients, especially protein and fat. A single egg contains nine essential amino acids, high quality protein, lutein and zeaxanthin for your eyes, choline for your brain, nervous- and cardiovascular systems, and naturally-occurring B12.

Ideally, you’ll want to eat your eggs as close to raw as possible, such as soft-boiled or poached. Scrambled or fried eggs are the worst, as this oxidizes the cholesterol in the egg yolk. If you have kidney damage, you may want to discard the egg white. If you chose to use the egg white, avoid eating it raw unless it’s in combination with the yolk. Eating only egg white could potentially lead to biotin deficiency.

Besides superior nutrition, pastured chickens are much healthier than factory farmed chickens and therefore have a far lower risk of producing eggs infected with salmonella. To find a free-range pasture farm in your local area, check out www.eatwild.com or www.localharvest.org.

Keep in mind that eggs sold as “cage-free” does not mean the chickens were raised under ideal conditions. They’re not raised in cages, but they may still not have access to the outdoors. So, there are still significant differences between “cage-free” and “free range” or “pastured” eggs. To identify better commercial producers and brands, see the Cornucopia Institute’s egg report and scorecard, which ranks 136 egg producers according to 28 organic criteria.

10. Berries

Berries are loaded with vitamins, minerals and micronutrients that impart a host of health advantages. Importantly, their antioxidant power helps keep free radicals in check and fights inflammation. Some of the most important antioxidants in berries are anthocyanins, flavonols, ellagic acid and resveratrol, which studies say help protect your cells and fight off disease.

Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries and blackberries are known as some of the world’s best dietary sources of bioactive compounds associated with a reduced risk of heart disease, neurodegeneration, diabetes, inflammation and cancer. One way to prevent waste — as berries can get moldy within days if you don’t eat them — is to buy frozen berries and simply thaw what you need. Frozen berries also tend to be less expensive pound-for-pound compared to fresh berries.

11. Kiwi

If you need vitamin C, which helps support immune function, look no further than the kiwi. One medium-sized fruit provides 117 percent of your daily recommended intake. They’re also a good source of fiber, vitamins E and K, potassium and antioxidants that help ward off chronic disease. Interestingly, kiwis have also been shown to help lower blood pressure.42

Acerola cherries are far better but they are not available commercially and need to be grown in subtropical environments. They are less than 10 percent the size of a kiwi and have more vitamin C. I have two trees that supply me with 50 to 75 or more cherries a day for about 8 months out of the year, which supplies me with many grams of a complete vitamin C matrix.

12. Raw Yogurt and Kefir

While most commercial yogurts are little more than glorified desserts loaded with sugar, yogurt and kefir made from cultured raw, organic grassfed milk are a real superfood, providing an array of healthy bacteria that support optimal health, along with high-quality protein, calcium, B vitamins and even cancer-fighting conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).

If you want to know which commercial yogurts are healthy and which are not, refer to The Cornucopia Institute’s Yogurt Report. Their investigation found many products being sold as yogurt do not even meet the standards for real yogurt. The report also includes a comparative cost analysis of commercial yogurt brands.

The good news is many organic yogurts are actually less expensive, on a price-per-ounce basis, than conventional, heavily processed yogurts (although some of the organic brands of yogurt actually contained some of the highest amounts of sugar). Your absolute best bet — and also your least expensive — is to make your own kefir or yogurt using organic grassfed milk. It’s a simple process requiring nothing more than the milk, some starter granules and a few mason jars.

13. Grassfed Beef and Beef Liver

Swapping grain-fed beef from concentrated animal feeding operations for organic grassfed beef is well worth the added price, as you get higher quality nutrients and less exposure to antibiotics and pathogenic bacteria. As for organ meat, it is a nutritional powerhouse, loaded with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other compounds vital to your health, many of which Americans are deficient in.

Liver is particularly packed with nutrients. In fact, it contains more nutrients, gram for gram, than any other food, including choline, B vitamins, bioavailable iron, vitamin D and CoQ10.

You can save money by buying directly from a farmer and then freezing the meat. To ensure you’re getting the highest quality possible, look for the American Grassfed Association’s certification. Their website also allows you to search for AGA approved producers certified according to strict standards that include being raised on a diet of 100 percent forage; raised on pasture and never confined to a feedlot; never treated with antibiotics or hormones; born and raised on American family farms.

14. Grassfed Raw Butter

Butter, when made from grassfed cows, is rich in CLA, known to help fight cancer and diabetes. Butter is also a rich source of easily absorbed vitamin A and other fat-soluble vitamins (D, E and K2) that are often lacking in the modern industrial diet, plus trace minerals such as manganese, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium (a powerful antioxidant).

About 20 percent of butterfat consists of short- and medium-chain fatty acids, which your body uses right away for quick energy. Real butter also contains Wulzen Factor, a hormone-like substance that prevents arthritis and joint stiffness, ensuring that calcium in your body is put into your bones rather than your joints and other tissues. The Wulzen factor is present only in raw butter and cream; it is destroyed by pasteurization.

Here, you again have the option of making your own butter from raw grassfed milk. You may also find unpasteurized grassfed butter at your local farm or farmers market. The next best is pasteurized butter from grassfed cows, followed by regular pasteurized butter common in supermarkets.

Even the latter two are healthier choices by orders of magnitude than margarines or spreads. Just beware of “Monsanto Butter,” meaning butter that comes from cows fed almost entirely genetically engineered grains. This includes Land O’Lakes and Alta Dena.

15. Mushrooms

A number of different mushrooms — including shiitake, maitake and reishi — are known for their immune-boosting powers. In fact, some of the most potent immunosupportive agents come from mushrooms, and this is one reason why they’re so beneficial for both preventing and treating cancer. Long-chain polysaccharides, particularly alpha- and beta-glucan molecules, are primarily responsible for the mushrooms‘ beneficial effect on your immune system.

They’re also rich in protein, fiber, vitamin C, B vitamins, selenium, calcium, minerals and antioxidants, including some that are unique to mushrooms. One such antioxidant is ergothioneine, which scientists are now beginning to recognize as a “master antioxidant.”

When it comes to mushrooms, make sure they’re organic, as mushrooms tend to absorb and concentrate toxins from soil, air and water. Growing your own is an excellent option, but avoid picking mushrooms in the wild unless you are absolutely sure you know what you’re picking. Some mushrooms are guaranteed lethal and have no known antidote.

16. Kale

The nutritional density of kale is virtually unparalleled among green leafy vegetables, boasting all essential amino acids and nine non-essential ones. One-half cup of raw kale provides 100 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin A, 340 percent of your vitamin K and 67 percent of your vitamin C. It’s also loaded with both lutein and zeaxanthin, which are important for good eyesight. Gram-for-gram, kale even contains more calcium than milk.

Like many other superfoods on this list, kale contains potent chemoprotective agents, including the phytonutrient indole-3-carbinol — which has been shown to aid DNA cell repair and slow the growth of cancer cells — and sulforaphane. Its anti-inflammatory capabilities have also been shown to help prevent and even reverse arthritis, heart disease and several autoimmune diseases.

17. Whey Protein Concentrate

Whey protein, a byproduct of milk and cheese, has been linked to a variety of health benefits, including:

Helping your insulin work more effectively, which helps maintain your blood sugar level after a meal Promoting healthy insulin secretion, which is imperative for optimal health
Helping to promote your optimal intake of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for your overall wellness Helping you preserve lean body tissue (particularly during exercise) as it delivers bioavailable amino acids and cysteine
Supporting your immune system, as it contains immunoglobulins Maintaining blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range

Whey protein concentrate (not to be confused with the far inferior whey protein isolate) is an ideal choice as it’s a rich source of amino acids.

It’s also the best food for maximizing your glutathione levels as it provides all the raw materials for glutathione production (cysteine, glycine and glutamate). Glutathione is your body’s most powerful antioxidant and has even been called “the master antioxidant.” It is a tripeptide found inside every single cell in your body. When shopping for a whey protein, be sure to look for a product that is:

  • Cold pressed
  • Derived from organic grassfed cows
  • Free of hormones
  • Toxin-free
  • Free of artificial sweeteners and sugar

REVEALED: Vaccine Ingredients Cause Tumors To Grow

Vaccine ingredients

Amy Goodrich
July 25, 2016

As a parent, you only want what’s best for your child. However, on multiple different fronts, parents are bombarded with the idea that vaccines play a crucial role in raising a healthy child. From pushy public schools to trusted pediatricians, the message is always the same: vaccines are the one and only way to avoid deadly diseases and protect your little one, and yourself.

While most parents have probably heard about some of the dangerous ingredients used in vaccines, driven by fear and trust in the ‘white coats,’ parents keep enrolling their children in the recommended, and ever-increasing, vaccine program.

Parents, physicians and vaccine opponents unwilling to get in line are at risk of finding themselves scandalized in the press, the doctor’s office and the public eye. Some of these whistleblowers are even killed to keep the vaccine and chemotherapy businesses running.

Cancer-causing enzymes in vaccines

Remember the cases of the holistic doctors who went missing or were being killed (or suspiciously found dead) in Florida? They had one thing in common: they all actively spoke out against the vaccine and cancer industries.

Just before his death, Dr. James Jeffrey Bradstreet, a physician who was known for his autism research and criticism of vaccines, found that a naturally occurring compound in the human body called GcMAF (Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor), could hold the key to a universal cure for cancerV.

GcMAF is an essential human protein made in the body through the combination of the Gc protein and vitamin D. Healthy humans make their own GcMAF to kill cancer cells naturally. Without GcMAF the immune system collapses, which clears the path for cancer cells to develop freely and spread throughout the body.

Furthermore, Dr. Bradstreet and his colleagues found that an enzyme/protein called nagalase, made by cancer cells and viruses, stops vitamin D from binding to the Gc protein, stripping the human body of its natural ability to kill cancer cells.

Nagalase has been found in high concentrations in children with autism. As nagalase has never been found in newborns, it must somehow have been introduced into these kids’ bodies later in life.

Most of the doctors found dead believed that nagalase was being intentionally added to vaccines.

Other harmful ingredients often added to vaccines include mercury, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate and aluminum. One way to help your body eliminate these nasty chemicals and amp up the immune system is through the Clean Chlorella/Hawaiian Spirulina superfood combo.

Mean money-making machine

Why on earth are pharmaceutical companies putting nagalase and other harmful chemicals in vaccines knowing that they may cause autism or tumor growth? The answer, of course, is money!

According to a global oncology report released by IMS Health Holdings in June 2016, worldwide spending on cancer treatments will exceed $150 billion by 2020. In 2015, oncology drug spending reached $107 billion, which is an 11.5 percent increase compared to the previous year.

The cancer industry is certainly a profitable business. A cheap, natural cancer cure could destroy its revenue in the blink of an eye. As you can see, it is in the industry’s best interests to trap you in the vicious cycle of sickness.

As Mike Adams reported, “A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable.”

And they’ll hurt anyone who gets between them and their cash cow.

Flu Vaccines Facts They Don’t Want You To Know About

June 30, 2016

The vaccine pushers in traditional medicine circles and Big Pharma have often gone out of their way to shield from consumers the dangers associated with vaccines, as Natural News readers are well aware of. The chicanery and obfuscation continues with the influenza vaccine.

As reported by Dr. Brent Hunter at Blogs.NaturalNews.com in November 2013, just as the influenza season was beginning that year the media and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had already begun ramping up the propaganda about how important it was to get the flu vaccine, despite the fact that the shot itself had been deemed extremely toxic, ineffective and very unsafe.

“Did you know that the 2013-2014 influenza vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury?” he wrote. “The vaccine contains 25,000 times more mercury than the safety limit for drinking water!”

He also noted that infant and child deaths from influenza were actually on the decline until 2003 when the pediatric flu shot was introduced, though no one from CDC or the mainstream media – which is beholden to the advertising dollars of Big Pharma – has the decency to report that. What’s more, after the child flu vaccine was introduced, the pediatric death rate not-so-coincidentally rose dramatically, prompting Hunter to recommend that parents become educated about the flu vaccine before subjecting their kids to them.

But perhaps the most important advice Hunter conveyed is that our bodies are “intelligently designed” to combat the hundreds of influenza viruses in circulation. Most immune systems are very well-equipped to prevent colds and flu – and even cancer. And even if you are stricken by the flu, you can nevertheless recover.

That said, some of the facts about these flu vaccines that Big Pharma and the medical community don’t want you to find out include:

— There are more than 200 viruses that can cause flu – it’s very hard to tell which strain to protect against;

— At present there are no studies tracking people who get a flu shot and still get sick anyway;

— Death rates from flu are partially hidden because they are combined with people who are immuno-compromised anyway;

— Prior to the pediatric flu vaccine introduction in 2003 mortality rates from flu for kids was decreasing.

All of this said, one of the best ways to bolster your immune system is through nutrition, however – and that’s the easy part. In fact, there are a number of superfoods you should add to your diet that will significantly boost your ability to fight off disease.

As we reported in October 2013 that there are four key superfoods that specifically help your body defend against influenza:

Garlic: Obviously a great-tasting additive to many dishes, garlic is also a key immune system-boosting superfood.

According to Natural Life, garlic “has been nicknamed ‘Russian penicillin,’ due to its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-yeast properties.”

Green tea: Another superfood you should add to your immune-boosting regimen is green tea. In writing for Eating Well, Prof. Rachel Johnson, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.D., says, “My colleague Mingruo Guo, Ph.D., a professor of food science at the University of Vermont and an authority on the immune-boosting potential of foods, always has a pot of green tea for brewing. He drinks five to six cups a day, convinced that it has immune-enhancing effects along with other health benefits.”

Chlorella: Packed with a complete protein, dozens vitamins and minerals and 18 amino acids (including the essential ones), chlorella is what we call “a perfect superfood”?that not only boosts your immune system but it may help your body naturally eliminate heavy metals consumed from dietary sources?and make you look more youthful and radiant.

Spirulina: This is one of the world’s most powerful whole foods, a superfood that everyone can enjoy. This amazing food has even more antioxidants than blueberries – another awesome superfood that help support your immune system.

Beware Of The Top 10 Toxins In Food & In Medicine That Cause The Majority Of US Allergies, Diseases & Disorders

Chemical toxins

S.D. Wells
June 28, 2016

From cradle to grave, Americans suffer from “mysterious” health problems that medical doctors just can’t seem to solve, not with medications, surgery or chemotherapy. Where oh where could all of these problems come from – ones that other countries barely have, or don’t have at all?

Think about it: Why would anyone’s body completely freak out just because you open a jar of peanut butter on the other side of the room? Why would a baby get a headache so severe that it causes brain damage? How did the statistics of autism go from 1 in 10,000 boys to 1 in 68, just since the late 1990s, and could it have anything to do with injecting the most toxic non-radioactive chemical on planet earth – an acute neurotoxin called mercury – into the muscle tissue of children over, and over, and over, and up to 30 times before they reach the age of three?

People worry so much about infectious diseases, but since the advent of decent plumbing and hospital hygiene in the mid-1900s, that hasn’t been a problem. Maybe everybody should be much more concerned about preventing preventable diseases, that shouldn’t be labeled diseases at all, since they’re not really contagious, in the literal sense of the word. The epidemic-style “diseases” of modern America are more or less disorders – disorders of the cells, malfunctions of cleansing organs, chronic inflammation, unnatural, conjured-up immune reactions, severely disrupted endocrine systems, infected lymphatic fluids, and profoundly disturbed central nervous systems. These malfunctions are not normal. The majority of these are not inherited from parents. These are health crises that develop after birth, and often worsen within a handful of years to the extent that they become permanent issues, requiring extensive, expensive, long-term care.

Since WWII, American food, medicine and personal care products have become heavily contaminated with toxins, and not by accident. “Big Food” and “Big Pharma” have grown to monopolize the industries that make Americans sick and dysfunctional, and they target the children, knowing that the parents will do anything (including spending every dime they have) to try to fix the problems and give their kids a normal life, or at least as close to normal as their money will provide. And there are only two types of medical doctors in the USA: There are the ones who know nothing about toxins in food and medicine, and who prescribe chemical quack medicines that address only the symptoms of preventable disorders, and then there are the medical doctors who know about toxins in food, medicine and personal care products, but prescribe chemical quack medicines anyway.

So, it’s not conspiracy theory when you eat a food product loaded with monosodium glutamate (MSG) and get a migraine headache within an hour that lasts for hours, leaving you completely non-functional, now is it? So then realize this, it’s also not guess work to figure out that most hyperactive, “ADHD” children eat toxic food dyes and can’t sit still at school afterwards. It’s also not some wild “hypothesis” that vaccines are made with peanut oil, which is not listed as an ingredient, because the so-called “trace amounts” aren’t enough to “count” according to the CDC. So now, friends, it’s time to closely examine the top 10 toxins in food and medicine that cause the majority of U.S. allergies, diseases and disorders.

#1. Mercury in vaccines causes autism.

#2. Peanut oil used to brew vaccines causes severe peanut allergies in developing children.

#3. Aspartame in food, beverages, gum, candy and medicine causes anxiety, seizures and depression – it’s a hidden schedule II narcotic!

#4. Mono sodium glutamate (MSG) in food and vaccines causes migraine headaches and brain damage in infants.

#5. Consuming unfermented soy regularly, whether organic or not (often found in baby formula), causes severe fluctuations in estrogen levels, leading to cancer tumors.

#6. Aluminum in antacids and vaccines causes Alzheimer’s and dementia.

#7. Sodium fluoride in tap water causes lowered IQ, cancer and brittle bones.

#8. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is the leading cause of diabetes worldwide.

#9. Consuming canola regularly, whether organic or not, destroys the protective coating surrounding your nerves, and leads to the degeneration of the heart, kidneys, thyroid gland and adrenals.

#10. Nearly all conventional food dyes are synthetic, petroleum-based and cause allergies, hyperactivity in children, and eventually, cancer.

Detoxification, prevention and cures for America’s multi-faceted health crisis

There are many foods and superfoods that help the human body detoxify from heavy metal toxin overload, and they include, but are not limited to: chia seeds, cilantro, spirulina and chlorella. There are many foods that build natural immunity to infectious diseases, and they include, but are not limited to: turmeric, aloe, oil of oregano, vitamin D3, vitamin C, garlic, ginger and organic and raw cruciferous vegetables. There are food colorants that come from natural foods, like berries. There are phenomenal water filtration systems for your home, including the Big Berkey. There are healthy oil choices like coconut oil and hemp seed oil, that prevent Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, respectively. There are healthy forms of salt, like actual sea salt, that’s full of the minerals your body wants most.

Remember, just because your government allows 70,000 toxic agents in food, and even more in medicine and personal care products, doesn’t mean you have to be naive and consume them, and then go to an MD for more punishment. Get smart; eat organic. Buy from local farmers, and grow your own healthy food!

Nourishing your body with superfoods including cilantro, mint and spinach helps ward off Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

Superfoods

Millions of Americans are stricken with dementia and Alzheimer’s, while millions more are concerned that they, too, may some day develop these conditions, which currently have no traditional medical cure.

Fortunately a great deal of research on natural and alternative treatments that can either stave off or improve dementia has been conducted and continues to be undertaken, and what scientists are discovering is no less than amazing.

For instance, simply improving your diet and adding key superfoods like blueberries and cilantro will dramatically improve your chances of keeping dementia at bay. But, as long as we feed our bodies with toxins and prepackaged foods and substances devoid of nutrition, our chances of getting dementia increase exponentially. Avoiding certain compounds and substances is also important in staving off dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Detoxification is key; adequately removing toxins like heavy metals requires the ingestion of certain superfoods. These include cilantro, chlorella, spinach, cabbage, asparagus, ginger root, mint, parsley, turmeric, sesame seeds, almonds and garlic, to name just a few.

Mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic are very common heavy metals, and we are exposed to some or all of them nearly every day of our lives, and sometimes at every meal. From foods to household chemicals and other items, from our tap water to dental fillings in our mouths, 99 percent of all chronic diseases and illnesses come from a combination of a lack of clean eating and proper nutrition, and toxic pollutants that constantly have to be filtered out of our bodies by our various organs. Eventually, when toxic metal levels get high enough and are left untreated, they begin causing chronic illness.

Our main organs that detoxify our bodies naturally are the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. The superfoods mentioned above go a long way towards helping the body accomplish its detoxification tasks. These superfoods will draw the heavy metals out of your bloodstream and organs, soft tissues and muscles, and prevent free radicals from polluting your system, and triggering chronic health conditions (like dementia).

These conditions are entirely preventable, if caught early enough, and we shouldn’t allow the traditional medical system to feed us the lie that our conditions are mostly “genetic” and therefore irreversible.

Consider, for instance, that around 15 million people are currently taking some form of statin drug. Per a recent entry in Truthwiki: “With the use of statins there is a GREATER RISK of coronary vessels developing obstructive coronary heart disease. Ironically, according to the FDA’s own adverse event reporting system, at least 40 of every 10,000 statin reports are for interstitial lung disease. Statins prescribed to the elderly is causing a 9% increase in diabetes, early-onset cataracts and insulin resistance.

“Western medicine doctors work hard to convince patients that nearly all disease, disorder and sickness is genetic, including Alzheimer’s, somehow inherited from our parents and passed along to the children, so the doctors are “needed” for regular checkups, regular visits, and regular chronic, costly care. Most people believe anything and everything their doctors tell them, but the truth is very far from this regarding Alzheimer’s disease–namely its root causes and the ‘end results.’ Plaques in the brain and hardened arteries can lead to Alzheimer’s and strokes, but there is much more to the diagnoses and examinations of the brain and the pollutants that contribute to disorder and severe malfunction of cognition.”
