Health Tip Of The Week...

Deep Corruption in Health Care Reform Process Revealed
According to, health care reform is being steered by the drug industry which has been salivating at the prospect of gaining millions of new customers.  Since such "reform" will be entirely controlled by the government, which is controlled by drug industry lobbyists, the new health care system would be run entirely by drug companies!

Top Ten Worst Foods - Part 3 of 4

Here's part 3 of the list of foods to avoid compiled by Dr. Ian Hoffman:
#6 Processed Foods (boxed and canned)
Typically found in the middle aisles of grocery stores, these foods are completely de-vitalized and have absolutely no nutritional value for optimal health and wellness.  And, they are often loaded with salt, sugar, food colorings, preservatives and MSG.  MSG (monosodium glutamate) is a known toxin that damages the nerve system.
#7 Simple Grains and Starches
These foods (wheat, bread, white rice, corn, & potatoes) have been linked to the chronic diseases of western civilization.  Most people would benefit from simply removing these from their diets.  Dr. Hoffman says, "The only grain I recommend is 100% sprouted grain bread (millet or spelt) and even then I only recommend 4 slices a week. Brown rice and wild rice or quinoa is also ok in moderation."
#8 Unfermented Soy
Unfermented soy (soy milk, tofu, and soy protein powders) interfere with optimal thyroid function blocking the absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.  And they interfere with hormonal balance.  Fermented soy is ok (miso, natto, and tempeh).
#9 Table Salt (sodium chloride)
Iodized salts interfere with water and ion (electrolyte) balance leading to retaining water high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.  Minimal use of natural sea salt is ok.

The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…

It's best to take control of your own health and well-being now because the drug industry in the US already exerts tremendous control in the current "sick care delivery system" which is dominated by corrupt insurance giants but under the government option, the drug industry would have full control over dictating what kinds of treatment Americans could receive.  Drugs, and you can be sure the most profitable drugs, would most certainly be the method of choice.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
