    RECIPE—Making and antioxidant syrup—
    take green tea or roobois or milk thistle —or any herb you choose—tumeric—cinnamon—thyme—bay leaf—and add ¼ cup of the herb in a blender—-then add ½- ¾ cup of wine—blend for 8 – 10 minutes at high speed –strain into a glass container—then take another ¼ cup of the same herb ( or a different one if you want to mix and match ) then add ¼- ½ cup of honey again blend at high speed for 8-10 minutes ( you may want to pour into the honey 1-2 ounces of the extract you just made to get the honey going for fusing the herbs) after you fuse the herbs in the honey add the extract to it and again at high speed blend for 5 minutes til they are blended and fused—strain again —you have made a Antioxidant syrup which can now be poured over a ice cream ( home made with real butter and real coconut oils and real cream ) on a fruit mix—in a tea or coffee as a sweetener and a nutrient additive

    Ministry of Health in NZ changing the Regs
    Most of you have undoubtedly heard that a consultation document to regulate natural products was recently released on the Ministry of Health Website in response to the Natural Products industry and consumer call for a stand alone New Zealand regulatory model for Natural Products, rather than an Australian takeover of our current regulatory body, Medsafe.—We were expecting the discussion document to be based upon the proposed Natural and Traditional Health Products Bill that was prepared in full consultation with Maoridom, Consumers, the NZ Health Trust, and the Natural Health Products Industry over a two year period.—nfortunately the MoH Consultation Document is diametrically opposed to most of the principals outlined in the proposed Bill and has aptly been labeled the ‘TGA in drag’. It is nothing short of a bureaucratic hood wink.
    The bureaucrats appear to have re-instated all of the unacceptable aspects of the TGA and Trans Tasman models that Health Freedom were successful in rejecting, including:
    1. The White List (Napoleonic Law – every natural ingredient to become illegal without a permit).
    2. The power to make up the rules as they go along.
    3. Anything in therapeutic dose be classed as a medicine and therefore regulated as a drug.
    4. Excessive compliance costs that would put most small businesses under, push up the price of natural products, and see the loss of thousands of jobs and products in the industry.
    5. Over the top fines that don’t make sense unless you want to send numerous small businesses to the wall.
    6. Extremely limited claims. The ability to say “may support” will go, replaced by a few extremely low level claims acceptable to the drug industry this proposal seeks to protect.
    Here are the details of the document and submission schedule.
    http://www.moh.govt.nz/moh.nsf/indexmh/consult-development-natural-health-products-bill-mar10
    The MoH is inviting submissions with a short deadline which is 17th May 2010. You may wish to write to them for an extension. Since the full time employed bureaucrats had 18 months to deliberate and come up with this document, it is only fair we the public get at least 90 days.
     
    Weatherman’s comments on what they are dumping from Oregon
     
    From about 1:13 to 1:40 he describes “bands of very distinct cloud cover moving into the region,” talks about military planes dumping “chaff,” which he describes as bits of aluminum, “tiny pieces of plastic or even metallicized paper products,” etc. then goes on to say that “it is used as an anti-radar issue and obviously they’re practicing.”–“Now they won’t confirm that, but I was in the Marine Corps for many years, and I can tell you here right now, that’s what it is.”
     
    Public being warned against some dry soup mixes over salmonella alert
    By The Canadian Press—OTTAWA – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to consume a couple of brands of dry soup mix because of possible salmonella contamination. The agency says some brands of Inovacure chicken soup mix, Proti diet chicken soup mix and None Chicken Noodle Soup Mix contain dry powder and paste hydrolyzed vegetable protein ( SOY or potentially corn or wheat —chances are they are GMO or GE and since they are not labeled should not be eaten anyway regardless of the warning of a salmonella contamination) ingredients. —Those ingredients have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada by Basic Food Flavors Inc. due to Salmonella contamination. The food inspection agency says the products may have been distributed nationally, but no illnesses have been reported in Canada in connection with the products.

    Farmers fight back
    At a rally held the preceding evening, farmers voiced their grievances and opposition to the excessive control that ‘Big Ag’ has gained [12]. “The crops that we grow are the basis of our civilization from when it started; so if anything belongs in the public domain, if anything belongs to the people of the world, it’s the crops we grow for food,” said one farmer to general applause. “In 2000 Monsanto Corporation tried to patent wheat; and after a five-year-long battle, we stopped them.” He pointed out that Monsanto claims to own corn, soybean, canola [oilseed rape] and cotton, yet “these crops go back as far as wheat. They are the basis of civilization. How can they claim to own them?” Monsanto did this from a legal standpoint through a patent office, he continued. “That’s not right. We’ve got to turn that back.—A dairy farmer from Wisconsin said: “Monsanto does not have the right to dictate the value of my life, my work, and the food I produce.” (Applause) —One farmer came all the way from Arkansas to warn the Iowans against ‘Big Ag’, only to find that the problem is already universal. Another from a family of farmers extending back to his great-great-grandfather declared: “the corporation has no conscience and is singularly driven for profit.” Paraphrasing President Abraham Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address, he added that the government agencies have a responsibility to protect democracy and prevent “government of the corporation, by the corporation, and for the corporation.”—Also present at the rally was the Senior Scientist of Pesticide Action Network, Dr Marcia Ishii-Eiteman. She had been a member of the Steering Committee for the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD), a major and comprehensive report released in April 2008 by about 400 scientists and other experts from some 60 countries [13, 14] (“GM-Free Organic Agriculture to Feed the World”, SiS 38). The report arose from concern that modern advances in agricultural science and technology, with their increased productivity, had nevertheless led to unintended and undesirable social and environmental effects. It addresses the policies needed to ensure security of food and livelihoods while maintaining environmental integrity. One of the most important findings is that GE crops are not needed to feed the world, contrary to the claims of the GE industry. GE crops are described in the report as ‘highly contentious’ and as having variable yield, which may be lower than that of conventional varieties. A remarkable feature of the report is the importance attached to traditional knowledge. Contrary to the modern Western trend for huge farms practicing intensive chemical monoculture, small-scale farming according to ecological principles has a major role to play. — In other words, local farmers have experience and wisdom needed even in this modern, technologically-based world. Above all, corporations driven by self-profit must not be allowed to control farmers and agriculture. The US government must surely be getting the message

    Supplement Your Stem Cells—–
    ScienceDaily (Apr. 7, 2010) — A nutritional supplement could stimulate the production of stem cells integral for repairing the body. Research published in BioMed Central’s open access Journal of Translational Medicine suggests that a commercially-available supplement can increase the blood circulation of hematopoietic stem cells, which can give rise to all blood cells, and endothelial progenitor cells, which repair damage to blood vessels.—Thomas E. Ichim from Medistem Incorporated, USA worked with a team of 13 researchers from industry and academia to further investigate whether this supplement, containing a cocktail of green tea, astralagus, goji berry extracts, ‘good’ bacteria Lactobacillus fermentum, antioxidant ellagic acid, immune enhancer beta 1,3 glucan and vitamin D3, was able to increase the number of stem cells circulating in the blood. They recruited 18 healthy adults aged between 20 and 72 who stopped any other dietary supplements 4-5 days before starting a two-week course of this supplement, taking it twice daily. The researchers took blood from the participants before they started the course and on days 1, 2, 7 and 14 to test for signs of stem cell activity by looking for cells expressing the genetic stem cell markers CD133, CD34 and KDR. They then confirmed whether taking the supplement changed the overall levels of hematopoietic stem cells and endothelial progenitor cells in the blood by using HALO (Hematopoietic Assay via Luminescent Output) and colony forming assays respectively.—Hematopoietic stem cells and endothelial progenitor cells increased after taking the nutritional supplement, suggesting that the supplement may be a useful stimulator for both types of stem cells. In this study, the levels of these stem cells peaked at 2-7 days and started to drop at 14 days, suggesting that this supplement could be used for continuous treatment for conditions associated with decreases in these stem cells such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Other therapeutic treatments used to recruit hematopoietic stem cells are not viable as long-term solutions due to costs and increased health risks caused by the extremely high levels of stem cells that these treatments maintain in the blood.—“To our knowledge, this is the first study demonstrating profound mobilization effect with possible clinical significance by a food supplement-based approach,” say the authors, adding, “Indeed it may be possible that our supplement could be beneficial in conditions associated with reduced progenitor cells such as diabetes or in smokers which possess lower baseline values as compared to controls.” Although they are quick to add, “However, given commercial pressures associated with this largely unregulated field, we propose detailed scientific investigations must be made before disease-associated claims are made by the scientific community.” –Story Source:–Adapted from materials provided by BioMed Central, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS.–Journal Reference: –Nina A Mikirova, James A Jackson, Ron Hunninghake, Julian Kenyon, Kyle WH Chan, Cathy A Swindlehurst, Boris Minev, Amit N Patel, Michael P Murphy, Leonard Smith, Famela Ramos, Doru T Alexandrescu, Thomas E Ichim and Neil H Riordan.

    Microwaved Water – See What It Does To Plants
    Below is a science fair project. In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference. I have known for years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, It’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it. So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these “Safe” appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed them when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. Never mind then, keep using them. Ask your Doctor I am sure they will say it’s safe too. Proof is in the pictures of living plants dying. Remember You are also Living. Take Care.

    ITen Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven
    From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:
    1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].
    2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food..
    3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.
    4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.
    5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.
    6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.
    7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America ..
    8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.
    9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.
    10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.
    After you throw out your microwave you can use a toaster oven as a replacement. It works well for most and is nearly as quick. The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. “brainwashing” , has also been proven. We’re attempting to obtain copies of the 1970’s Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

    Subbing ‘bad’ carbs for ‘bad’ fats ups heart risk
    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – People who cut out saturated fatty acids while upping their intake of white bread, pasta and other refined carbohydrates that can cause blood sugar to spike aren’t doing their heart any favors, new research from Denmark shows.–But reducing saturated fatty acid intake while eating more whole grain bread, vegetables (aside from potatoes), and other carbohydrates with a less dramatic effect on blood sugar may improve heart health, Dr. Marianne U. Jakobsen of Aarhus University Hospital and her colleagues found. “The type of carbohydrate matters,” Jakobsen told Reuters Health.—A recent analysis of 21 studies including 350,000 people found “no significant evidence” that saturated fat in and of itself increased heart disease risk, but the authors of that analysis suggested that what people replaced those saturated fat calories with might be more important. A subsequent study found that this was indeed the case; people who upped their polyunsaturated fatty acid intake while cutting saturated fat showed improved heart health.–In the current study, Jakobsen and her team looked at the carbohydrate side of the equation. Specifically, they accounted for the “glycemic index” of different types of carbohydrates.–Glycemic index is a measure of how quickly blood sugar jumps after eating a particular type of carbohydrate. Low glycemic index foods tend to be high in fiber and less refined, such as foods made from whole grains; high glycemic foods are often lower in fiber and more highly refined, and include white bread, pasta made from white flour, and bananas.—To investigate how increasing carb intake while reducing saturated fatty acid intake affected the heart, the researchers looked at 53,644 men and women who had never suffered heart attacks. During follow-up, which averaged about 12 years, nearly 2,000 heart attacks were documented.—Jakobsen and her team divided the study participants into three groups based on the average glycemic index of the carbohydrates in their diet, and then calculated heart attack risk based on the composition of their diet.–They found that heart attack risk fell by 12 percent for every additional 5 percent of a person’s total calorie intake that came from carbohydrates — if a person’s average dietary glycemic index was low. However, this reduction wasn’t statistically significant, meaning it could have been due to chance.—But among the people with the highest average dietary glycemic index, every 5 percent increase in carbohydrate calories upped heart attack risk by 33 percent. For people whose average glycemic index fell in the middle, an increase in carb intake along with a reduction in saturated fatty acid intake had no effect on heart risk.—“We cannot say that saturated fatty acids are not associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease because it depends on what you compare,” Jakobsen told Reuters Health.—Unfortunately, she added, figuring out the glycemic index of a particular food is not straightforward. “It’s a scientific way of classifying foods, so it’s not really public-health-friendly,” she said.–Nevertheless, the researcher added, people can likely decrease their glycemic index by eating “less refined foods.”—-SOURCE: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, April 7, 2010.

    Lack of Omega-6 Fatty Acid Linked to Severe Dermatitis
    ScienceDaily (Apr. 14, 2010) — University of Illinois scientists have learned that a specific omega-6 fatty acid may be critical to maintaining skin health.–“In experiments with mice, we knocked out a gene responsible for an enzyme that helps the body to make arachidonic acid. Without arachidonic acid, the mice developed severe ulcerative dermatitis. The animals were very itchy, they scratched themselves continuously, and they developed a lot of bleeding sores,” said Manabu Nakamura, a U of I associate professor of food science and human nutrition.—When arachidonic acid was added to the animals’ diet, the itching went away, he said.—Nakamura’s team has been focusing on understanding the function of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, and doctoral student Chad Stroud developed a mouse model to help them understand the physiological roles of these fats. By knocking out genes, they can create deficiencies of certain fats and learn about their functions.—“Knocking out a gene that enables the body to make the delta-6-desaturase enzyme has led to some surprising discoveries. In this instance, we learned that arachidonic acid is essential for healthy skin function. This new understanding may have implications for treating the flaky, itchy skin that sometimes develops without an attributable cause in infants,” he said.—Nakamura explained that our bodies make arachidonic acid from linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that we must obtain through our diets. It is found mainly in vegetable oils.—-Scientists have long attributed healthy skin function to linoleic acid, which is important because it provides the lipids that coat the outer layer of the skin, keeping the body from losing water and energy, which would retard growth, the scientist said.—But skin function seems to be more complicated than that. These itchy mice had plenty of linoleic acid. They just couldn’t convert it to arachidonic acid because the gene to make the necessary enzyme had been knocked out, he noted.—Arachidonic acid is also essential to the production of prostaglandins, compounds that can lead to inflammatory reactions and are important to immune function. Common painkillers like aspirin and ibuprofen work by inhibiting the conversion of arachidonic acid to prostaglandins.—“We usually think of inflammation as a bad thing, but in this case, prostaglandins prevented dermatitis, which is an inflammatory reaction. We measured prostaglandin levels in the animals’ skin, and when we fed arachidonic acid to the knockout mice, they resumed making these important chemical compounds,” he said.—Nakamura cautioned that there are still things they don’t understand about the function of this omega-6 fatty acid. “This new knowledge is a starting point in understanding the mechanisms that are involved, and we need to do more research at the cellular level.”—The study was published in a recent issue of the Journal of Lipid Research. Co-authors are Chad K. Stroud, Takayuki Y. Nara, Manuel Roqueta-Rivera, Emily C. Radlowski, Byung H. Cho, Mariangela Segre, Rex A. Hess, and Wanda M.

    Recipe For Peanut Butter—
    make peanut butter—take some peanuts ½ cup—vitamin C ( 1-2 tsp ) coconut cream 2 tablespoons—1-2 0oz of coconut oil ( you can use sesame seed –olive—sunflower—or any oil you prefer) 1/ 2 tsp of Nutmeg, 1 tsp of salt –add the cream and the oil in the blender and vitamin C-nutmeg and salt- and place lid on the blender and proceed at lowest speed possible—pop open the insert to the lid so you can drop the nuts inside—and allow to blend—as you see the nuts break down and liquefy add more of the nuts to this—keep adding and increase the speed slightly up to 2 settings higher, if you see the blender bog a bit then slow it down again to it’s slowest til you see it puree the nuts—and once this begins again add more—this will in fact get to almost a quarter up the blender—this will eventually cream—when this is done then pour into a glass Container—and allow to cool—this is going to give you something called – Arachidonic Acid—this is known to be the cause of some inflammation —but it is necessary for the diet because with out it your skin falls apart—In earlier times Edgar Cayce would suggest in some of his reading to apply peanut oil topically to assist with skin and arthritic issues, and had great success —now I understand why—this causes the signaling pathways of your cells to respond and regulate healthy skin by converting to omega 6—The other element here is for brain development and maintenance—if you mix the above with nutmeg and a dha source ( microalgae—walnut—chia seed oil—flax ( fresh pressed you do at home) can increase the effect and by taking a Choline supplement ( Choline bitrate, CDP coline, Alpha GPC Choline–) you may find brain acuity improve
    Here are some of the benefits: Arachidonic acid in the body
    Muscle growth
    Arachidonic acid is necessary for the repair and growth of skeletal muscle tissue. One of the lead researchers of the Baylor study on arachidonic acid, Mike Roberts MS, CSCS, has authored an article published under the title Arachidonic Acid, The New Mass Builder explaining the role of this nutrient in muscle anabolism, and its potential for the enhancement of muscle size and strength. —Roberts claims that for optimal muscle growth a training stimulus must elicit localized inflammation and soreness. He also shows that arachidonic acid (AA, 20:4n-6) is an essential Omega-6 (1-6) polyunsaturated fatty acid that is abundant in skeletal muscle membrane phospholipids (figure 2). It is also the body’s principle building block for the production of prostaglandins, which are known to have various physiological roles including a close involvement in inflammation. Also, the prostaglandin isomer PGF2a has a potent ability to stimulate muscle growth. As such, Roberts says that arachidonic acid is a regulator of localized muscle inflammation, and he claims that it may be a central nutrient controlling the intensity of the anabolic/tissue-rebuilding response to weight training.
    Brain
    Arachidonic acid is one of the most abundant fatty acids in the brain, and is present in similar quantities to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). The two account for approximately 20% of its fatty acid content. Like DHA, neurological health is reliant upon sufficient levels of arachidonic acid. Among other things, arachidonic acid helps to maintain hippocampal cell membrane fluidity. It also helps protect the brain from oxidative stress by activating perioxisomal proliferator-activated receptor-y. ARA also activates syntaxin-3 (STX-3), a protein involved in the growth and repair of neurons.—Arachidonic acid is also involved in early neurological development. In one study funded by the U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, infants (18 months) given supplemental arachidonic acid for 17 weeks demonstrated significant improvements in intelligence, as measured by the Mental Development Index (MDI). This effect is further enhanced by the simultaneous supplementation of ARA with DHA. —In adults, the disturbed metabolism of ARA may be associated with neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease and Bipolar Disorder. This may involve the increased consumption of ARA at the cellular level, and significant alterations in its conversion to other bioactive molecules (overexpression or disturbances in the ARA enzyme cascade). The increased consumption of dietary arachidonic acid is not believed to cause these neurological disorders. In the Journal of Lipid Research, an American Society for Biochemical and Molecular Biology journal, a study dated 2005-05-25 used the Flinders Sensitive Line rats to investigate the link between omega-3 fatty acids and depression. An examination of the brains of depressed rats compared them with brains from normal rats. Surprisingly, they found that the main difference between the two types of rats was in omega-6 fatty acid levels and not omega-3 fatty acid levels. Specifically, they discovered that brains with depression had higher concentrations of arachidonic acid, a long-chain unsaturated metabolite of omega-6 fatty acid. The findings suggest that it is not a lack of omega-3 fatty acids but a higher increase of arachidonic that is implicated in depression.
    Bodybuilding supplement
    Arachidonic acid is marketed as an anabolic bodybuilding supplement in a variety of products. The first clinical study concerning the use of arachidonic acid as a sport supplement was conducted at Baylor University and published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.–The performance data results from the paper include the following statistically significant improvement, and statistically strong trends: A significant group × time interaction for relative Wingate peak power was observed among groups (P = 0.02) with gains in peak power being significantly greater in the AA group (0.3 ± 1.2 W·kg-1) vs. PLA (0.2 ± 0.7 W·kg-1, Figure 1). Using repeated measures ANOVA with delta scores, AA experienced significantly greater increases in comparison to the PLA group at day 50 (P < 0.05). Statistical trends were seen in Wingate total work (AA: 1,292 ± 1,206 vs. PLA: 510 ± 1,249 J, P = 0.09, ηp 2 = 0.052), favoring the AA group.–WIth regard to inflammation, the paper reported a statistiically significant reduction in resting IL-6 levels (a central regulator of inflammation):—IL-6 levels experienced a significant group × time interaction (P = 0.04) among groups with subsequent post-hoc analyses revealing that IL-6 was significantly lower at day 25 of the study. One way ANOVA of IL-6 delta values at day 25 revealed significantly greater increases in PLA when compared to AA group (AA: 0.8 ± 13.5 pg·ml-1 vs. PLA: 52.5 ± 1.6 pg·ml-1, P = 0.01; Figure 2)–Arachidonic acid was shown to improve peak muscle power, reduce resting IL-6 levels, and produce statistically strong trends of improvements in muscle endurance, average power, and bench press 1-rep maximum lift. This study provides preliminary evidence supporting the use of arachidonic acid in sports nutrition. Further research is needed.
    Dietary arachidonic acid and inflammation
    Under normal metabolic conditions, the increased consumption of arachidonic acid is unlikely to increase inflammation. ARA is metabolized to both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory molecules. Studies giving between 840 mg and 2,000 mg per day to healthy individuals for up to 50 days have shown no increases in inflammation or related metabolic activities. Increased arachidonic acid levels are actually associated with reduced pro-inflammatory IL-6 and IL-1 levels, and increased anti-inflammatory tumor-necrosis factor-beta. This may reduce inflammation under certain conditions.—-Arachidonic acid does still play a central role in inflammation related to many diseased states. How it is metabolized in the body dictates its inflammatory or anti-inflammatory activity. Individuals suffering from joint pains or active inflammatory disease may find that increased arachidonic acid consumption exacerbates symptoms, probably because it is being more readily converted to inflammatory compounds. Likewise, high arachidonic acid consumption is not advised for individuals with a history of inflammatory disease, or that are in compromised health. It is also of note that while ARA supplementation does not appear to have pro-inflammatory effects in healthy individuals, it may counter the anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 EFA supplementation.
    Health effects of arachidonic acid supplementation
    Arachidonic acid supplementation in daily dosages of 1,000-1,500 mg for 50 days has been well tolerated during several clinical studies, with no significant side effects reported. All common markers of health including kidney and liver function, serum lipids, immunity, and platelet aggregation appear to be unaffected with this level and duration of use. Furthermore, higher concentrations of ARA in muscle tissue may be correlated with improved insulin sensitivity. Arachidonic acid supplementation by healthy adults appears to offer no toxicity or significant safety risk. The safety of arachidonic acid supplementation in patients suffering from inflammatory or other diseased states is unknown, and is not recommended.
