Millions of people believe that taking a daily multi-vitamin is a healthy act. And it can be. However... not all multi-vitamins are created equal, and not all of them are safe!

In fact, the majority of multi-vitamin supplements being sold in the marketplace are just plain crap. This is true even for many that are sold in "health food" stores.

Warning: You might get pissed off after reading this page. But at least you’ll have the information needed to keep yourself safe from toxic multi-vitamin scams.

Common Ingredients Found in Multi-Vitamins Prove to Be Toxic!

The year was 2000. I was a young, naive chemist working toward my Master’s degree in drug design. Working feverishly in the lab next to me, a chemistry professor was horrified at something she was looking at. She called me over to have a look.

What I saw made my eyeballs almost pop out of my head...

Resting neatly under her microscope was a Petri dish containing DNA, the building blocks of life. The professor had recently exposed the DNA to chromium picolinate, an ingredient commonly found in multi-vitamin products. Her intention with the experiment was to mimic vitamin consumption and monitor the results.

The scene inside the Petri-dish looked as if a bomb had gone off. It looked like terrorists had gotten a hold of the DNA and blown it to smithereens. Chromosomes that were once neatly-coiled were now random pieces of nucleotides scattered around like broken china.

You don’t have to be a scientist to understand what happened here. I’ll simplify it for you:

Like a grenade, chromium picolinate blew the genetic map of the DNA to pieces. It was the first piece of evidence proving that synthetic ingredients in vitamins can be toxic.

Now think about the fact that chromium picolinate is an ingredient OFTEN INCLUDED IN MULTI-VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS! If you swallow it, it’s like putting a grenade to your DNA!

When your DNA gets f#$%d up, all sorts of bad things can happen... such as cancer.

Seeing the effect that chromium picolinate had on the DNA in the Petri dish, I couldn't help but wonder, "Why are people eating this shit?"

 

Why is Nobody Talking About this DEADLY Multi-Vitamin Scam?

That incident in the lab took place well over a decade ago. At the time, I had not yet been fully exposed to the Big Pharma scam perpetuated by the "lamestream" media and clueless supplement hucksters.

But ever since then, I've grown more and more disgusted that this shit is being sold to unsuspecting consumers.

Unfortunately, chromium picolinate isn't the only toxic offender. Most multi-vitamins are loaded with synthetic copycats of Mother Nature. Very few supplement hucksters are aware of the real and present danger of these substances, and many vitamin consumers have unknowingly become "casualties of war," thanks to supplement toxicity.

But you don't have to be a victim anymore.

I'm committed to educating laypersons about the horrors of synthetic multi-vitamins. These agents of destruction don’t belong anywhere near your DNA – they belong in the garbage!

 

Does Your Multi-Vitamin Contain These 3 Toxic Ingredients?

Most multi-vitamins are filled with a slew of toxic ingredients, but the 3 biggest culprits are:

 

  • Vitamin D
  • Folic Acid
  • Calcium

 

If any one of these are in your multi-vitamin, throw the bottle in the trash! In addition to wasting your money, you also destroy your health by taking them.

Most Toxic Vitamin #1 – Synthetic Vitamin D (It Makes Great Rat Poison!)

Vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 are man-made drugs that have been proven to be extremely effective at killing rats. In other words, they make good rat poison.

The University of Colorado reminded the scientific community of this danger when they published: "...baits containing large quantities of vitamin D are used very effectively as rodenticides (rat poison)."

Said another way...SUPPLEMENT HUCKSTERS ARE PUTTING RAT POISON (AKA SYNTHETIC VITAMIN D) IN YOUR MULTI VITAMINS!

Popular poisons like Quintox and Rampage prove that synthetic vitamin D is lethal. These products contain less than 8% vitamin D per serving and will kill a rat in 1 to 4 days... which means that if vitamin D were treated like the drug it is, it would never make it past clinical trials!

What effect does this poison have on humans?

When ingested, synthetic vitamin D products mobilize calcium from bones into the bloodstream. The results may include:

 

  • hypercalcemia
  • kidney failure
  • central nervous system depression (Can lead to depression and lack of energy)
  • heart failure

 

All of these are signs of parathyroid dysfunction, which can manifest as kidney stones, frequent headaches, fatigue, and depression. Sometimes the symptoms are not so obvious, like high blood pressure and the inability to concentrate.

Bottom line: keep synthetic vitamin D far, far away from your body. Don’t swallow it. Don't fall prey to the supplement scammers who say it’s good for you. It's not.

How do you know if your vitamin D is synthetic? Easy. If it has the number 2 or 3 after it and is in capsule or tablet form, then it’s synthetic.

 

Most Toxic Vitamin #2 – Folic Acid (Beware This Counterfeit!)

Folic acid is a cheap counterfeit isolate of the naturally occurring "folate."

The term folate (not to be confused with folic acid) encompasses many naturally occurring chemical cousins – chemists call them isomers – that play a wide range of positive roles in the body.

Folate is good for you. Without getting enough full-spectrum natural folate, our body becomes a breeding ground for:

 

  • Alzheimer's disease
  • coronary heart disease
  • osteoporosis
  • neural tube defects
  • poor cognitive performance
  • depression
  • hearing loss
  • many types of cancer

 

That said, you should be flooding your body with folate – but NOT the fake counterfeit, "folic acid."

In one of the biggest natural heists in pharmaceutical history, Big Pharma stole the real folate from the marketplace and replaced it with their nasty substitute: folic acid.

Known to chemists as pteroylglutamic acid monoglutamate, the drug folic acid is one of the best-selling scams infiltrating the nutritional supplement market today. It has made its way into products such as multi-vitamins, and even prenatals. (So even before they’re born, growing fetuses are getting slammed by folic acid swallowed by their pregnant mothers!)

Adding injury to insult, the FDA mandated that grain-based foods such as bread and cereal, be fortified with folic acid in 1996. THAT MEANS THOSE IDIOTS INTENTIONALLY ADDED FOLIC ACID TO COMMON FOOD PRODUCTS! The only thing missing from most cereal boxes is a “black box warning,” because the side effects of folic acid are staggering.

Today, an estimated 274 million people are being exposed to folic acid. Unbeknownst to them, the synthetic compound has proven to have adverse effects. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), "no long term studies exist to evaluate the risks associated with prolonged use."

The Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening trial linked folic acid intake with 20% to 32% increased risk of breast cancer in women who consume more than 400 microg/d supplemental folic acid per day.

Bottom line: Beware of the counterfeit, folic acid.

Most Toxic Vitamin #3 – Calcium (It Can “Freeze” Your Arteries!)

Important

Are you sick to your stomach yet? It gets worse...

Another commonly used supplement that does more harm than good iscalcium. Practically EVERYONE has been fooled into thinking this one is not only safe, but mandatory for healthy bones. BS!

A friend of mine recently told me about a gruesome death of someone close to him. The deceased had been a “health nut,” taking calcium as prescribed by her doctor.

The woman was found dead lying on the kitchen floor. Her sister had stopped by for a surprise visit to say happy birthday. Instead of a happy celebration, it was a moment of pure horror.

...I'm not making this up. This shit is real...

Taking the normal dose of recommended calcium pills, the victim had inadvertently created a situation in which her arteries became "calcified." Essentially, they were frozen in time. Like concrete setting, her insides hardened. Technically, this is called calcification.Fake calcium was the catalyst for her slow death.

You see, there’s a HUGE difference between calcium from nature – which is organic calcium – and the poisonous calcium that’s is in your multi-vitamin!

Produced by drug giants Hoffmann-La Roche and BASF, calcium in your multivitamin is known chemically as:

 

  • calcium carbonate
  • calcium citrate
  • dolomite
  • di-calcium phosphate
  • calcium hypochlorite
  • tri-calcium phosphate

 

So poisonous is fake calcium, that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns against this crap in your water:

Bottom line: If you value your health, examine your multi-vitamin labels. If you find any of forms of synthetic calcium listed above, then throw the bottle in the garbage!

 

Take a Stand Against Toxic Multivitamins

Whether it's chromium picolinate, vitamin D, folic acid, or calcium, studies over the last 10 years have confirmed that synthetic toxins offer no health benefits whatsoever. At the same time, chemists have learned that many of these synthetic impostors can lead to calcium deposits – a common condition which, in severe cases, can narrow or block the arteries that feed the heart. This leads to heart failure.

Does that sound f#$%ing healthy to you?

I didn’t think so!

Heart failure is exactly what happened to my friend’s loved one, who was found dead on her birthday. The most unforgivable part of that story is that her doctor actually recommended she take the very calcium supplements that ended up killing her.

 

Millions of People are Killing Themselves to Be Healthy – Because They Don’t Know Any Better

The dangers of synthetic vitamins are well-documented in scientific literature.

One University study wrote in The New York Daily News that, "Calcium supplements, long recommended for stronger bones, may be bad for the heart."

The New York Times sounded the calcium supplement alarm, as well. They published that, "Older people who take at least 500 milligrams of calcium daily--less than the amount in a typical one-a-day calcium pill--are 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack than those who take no calcium at all."

Stop what you're doing and think about this...Millions of people are killing themselves to be healthy. Birthday celebrations will be missed - vacations and graduations will vanish... All those great experiences that yield indelible memories, gone.

 

Synthetic Vitamins are a National Health Crisis

As The People's Chemist (heck, even as a young college dude tossing together a hangover remedy), I've always taught that medicine is a science of MEASURABLE RESULTS.

For the non-genius reading this, that means there has to be a positive outcome from taking a pill – something you can measure.

When I design vitamins, I make damn sure that every single one of my creations has only naturally occurring ingredients and confers positive, MEASURABLE RESULTS.

For a multi-vitamin, an example of a positive and measurable result would be something with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. A multi-vitamin would also be beneficial if it fought cancer and boosted the immune system!

Sadly, MEASUREMENT is not on most people’s radar.

Pill popping is usually the result of blind loyalty to celebrity promotions, doctors orders, or MLM vitamin scams. That’s why synthetic vitamins are a national crisis. It’s not on ANYBODY’S radar. Nobody gives a shit.

Most people are living under the illusion that swallowing multi-vitamins is healthy... and therefore, this national crisis won’t be solved any time soon.

Millions will ignorantly continue swallowing toxic multi-vitamin supplements, to their own demise.

Just because THEY’RE being stupid doesn’t mean you have to.

You have the power to change the course of your own health, by saying “No” to synthetic multi-vitamins.

Introducing "Daily Dose"... a Multi-Vitamin That Preserves Your Body, Rather Than Poisoning It

Daily Dose is a different kind of multi-vitamin...

It contains the most beneficial, naturally occurring nutrients required to fight cancer, as well as increase energy, vitality, immunity, and longevity.

Each capsule provides your body with a wide array of naturally occurring ingredients:

 

  • curcumin
  • beta-carotene
  • cobalt
  • essential fats
  • full-spectrum niacin
  • zinc
  • iron
  • manganese
  • B vitamins

 

... all of which are sourced directly from nature!

BEST OF ALL, THERE’S NO SYNTHETIC IMPOSTERS IN DAILY DOSE!

Daily Dose is Your New Health Insurance

Despite the government trying hard to keep people stupid, and despite all the blind support given to Big Pharma, and all the idiotic doctors who continue pushing deadly drugs onto clueless consumers – YOU still have a powerful weapon for health.

It’s called Daily Dose.

Using ultra potent turmeric, curcumin extract, cayenne and bromelain, Daily Dose floods your body with all of the real, full-spectrum antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and even anti-clotting medicines you need, direct from nature!

Here’s a look at the benefits of Daily Dose ingredients:

Cayenne pepper and bromelain help boost the bio-availability of curcumin. That means you absorb more healing compounds than compared to any other supplement or drug on the market. These two compounds also work to keep cells happy and healthy so they don’t turn into a rogue cancer.

Natural curcumin has been used for thousands of years as an anti-inflammatory. It's proven to help protect against cancer; purify the blood, detox the liver, and improve digestion. It can even help with skin infections, wound closure, and chronic pain. Curcumin is also cancer repellant.

Loaded with compounds known as curcuminoids, turmeric is your best weapon against declining health. Dr. Minerva Santos, director of integrative medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital in New York was quoted as saying, "This orange and yellow spice, famous for its extensive use in South Asian cuisine, also has anti-inflammatory properties. I recommend it frequently..."

More on the Benefits of Curcumin...

Even the American Cancer Society (ACS) has written that, "Laboratory studies have shown that curcumin interferes with several important molecular pathways involved in cancer development, growth, and spread. Researchers have reported that curcumin inhibited the formation of cancer-causing enzymes in rodents."

The Journal of Drugs in Dermatology highlights curcumin’s many uses, too:

"Curcumin is a crystalline compound which gives the East Asian spice turmeric its bright yellow color. The medicinal properties of this spice have been referenced in numerous countries and cultures throughout the world. Today, there’s growing scientific evidence suggesting curcumin's utility in the treatment of chronic pain, inflammatory dermatoses, acceleration of wound closure, skin infections, as well as cosmetic ailments such as dyspigmentation."

There has never been a multi-vitamin or even prescription drug to offer so many health benefits as turmeric.

Beware of Store-Bought Turmeric Supplements That Are Void of Active Ingredients

Unfortunately, when I surveyed existing turmeric products in the marketplace, I found something shocking... and even downright unforgivable. They lacked the active ingredients required for healing! Worse, they were loaded with fillers and preservatives...

Where can you get a daily serving of pure, quality turmeric that hasn’t been chemically butchered in a lab somewhere?

Use my new Daily Dose supplement, and you’ll flood your body with life-enhancing turmeric, plus all the other powerful ingredients previously mentioned.

 

How To Quit Sugar In 5 Days

Written by  |  Published in Health
By now, you've heard it everywhere—the long list of reasons to quit sugar
 
A few of the most compelling are:
  • Sugar creates an addictive cycle of hunger, fatigue and moodiness. It initially spikes blood sugar, causing us to feel energized and happy. But since it's devoid of real nutrition, blood sugar quickly plummets, leaving us tired, hungry and moody. So we reach for more sugar ... 
  • Sugar causes excess storage of fat: It triggers the body to produce insulin, which tells fat cells to store more. Yikes!
  • Sugar causes inflammation. This causes pain and is seen as a precursor to heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
The good news is that it takes only five days to dramatically reduce the body’s dependence on sugar, by eliminating refined sugar from your diet. That includes most processed foods (because they contain loads of added sugar), condiments, candy, baked goods and sweetened beverages, including those with artificial sweetners. Also watch out not to overindulge in fruit – aim for no more than 1 serving a day. 
 
The downside is that sugar cravings can be intense in those 5 days, which is why you need ninja moves. Certain foods can reduce cravings and balance the body, getting you over the hump much easier.
 
Here’s what to eat to detox from sugar and stay satisfied & sane:
 
1. High protein, fat and fiber foods
 
Here’s why they're great: These are highly satisfying and keep the body full for longer. Make sure every meal and snack contains them. Aim for about 25% of your meal to come from protein with good fats, like Omega 3s. Contrary to popular belief, real saturated fat actually reduces cholesterol.
 
Good options: eggs, nuts, avocados, olive oil, hummus, salmon or antibiotic free chicken.
 
2. Green leafy vegetables instead of bread, pasta and refined carbohydrates
 
Here’s why they're great: Bread is quickly converted to sugar, creating the same cycle, but vegetables are complex carbohydrates, which keep you satiated for hours. They take longer to digest – expect to feel full 30 minutes after eating a salad.
 
Good options: Arugula and kale are great for detoxing.
 
3. Sour foods
 
Here’s why: They knock out a sugar craving.
 
Good options: Sauerkraut or kimchi. 
 
4. Pure dark chocolate 
 
Here’s why: It releases endorphins without spiking your sugar.
 
Good options: Bakers Cooking Chocolate, which is 100% cacao.
 
5. Drink more water
 
Here’s why: This makes you feel full and flushes excess sugar out of the body, thus reducing the craving. Bonus, it can help you lose weight. 
 
I hope this helps. For a guided detox complete with meal plans try my 5-Day Energy Boost Detox

Let’s face it, we are exposed to an alarming amount of toxins on a daily basis. From the BPA that lines your canned goods to the pesticides liberally sprayed on anything alive these days, our bodies are constantly absorbing an outrageous amount of chemicals.

Even though you may try to live as pure a life as possible, sneaky sources of dangerous metals are everywhere, even in the so-called “all natural” products that fool consumers into believing these ingredients are safe. Over time, high concentrations of metals build up in our systems and can lead to a wide variety of conditions, including, but not limited to:

•    Anemia
•    Dizziness
•    Fatigue
•    Dry skin
•    Joint or muscle aches
•    Loss of appetite
•    blood pressure issues
•    Nausea
•    Vitamin and mineral deficiencies

Try as you may, there’s just no getting around the obscene amounts of toxins we are exposed to daily.

Introducing the Coconut Oil Pulling Method:

Modern naturopathic practitioners are joining with ancient Ayurvedic health practitioners in an understanding of just how powerful a detoxification and healing tool oil pulling really is. Although coconut oil is not the only oil that can be used to oil pull (others include sesame, sunflower and olive), we love its long list of health-promoting properties (for both oil pulling and/or coconut oil ingestion), listed below:

•    Antibacterial—stops bacteria that cause gum disease, throat infections, urinary tract infections and ulcers in their tracks.
•    Anticarcinogenic—keeps dangerous cancer cells from spreading while boosting immunity.
•    Antifungal—destroys infection-promoting fungus and yeast.
•    Anti-inflammatory—suppresses inflammation and repairs tissue.
•    Antimicrobial—inactivates harmful microbes and fights infection.
•    Antioxidant—protects from free radical damage.
•    Antiparasitic—can help rid the body of tapeworms and other parasites.
•    Anti-protozoa—kills protozoan infection in the gut.
•    Antiviral—helps to kill dangerous viruses that cause influenza, measles, hepatitis and more.

Some positive side effects of oil pulling may include the following:

•    Overall strengthening of teeth, gums and jaw
•    Plaque prevention
•    Prevention of halitosis (bad breath)
•    Prevention of cavities and diseases such as gingivitis
•    Prevention of lip, mouth and throat dryness
•    Possible remedy for jaw soreness and TMJ
•    Relief of migraine headache
•    Hormone imbalance correction
•    Inflammation reduction
•    Support of normal kidney function
•    Relief from sinus congestion
•    Relief from eczema
•    Improved vision
•    Pain reduction
•    Aids in detoxification
•    Helps with insomnia

Follow these instructions to perform the oil pulling method:

1.    Oil pulling should be done on an empty stomach (preferably first thing in the morning)

2.    Use one tablespoon of organic virgin coconut oil – you may want to start with ½ tablespoon and work your way up to a tablespoon.

3.    Swish the oil around in your mouth slowly and be sure that the oil reaches all parts of your mouth – do not swallow.

4.    Swish for five to ten minutes. Try to work up to twenty minutes if you can.

5.    Spit out all of the oil when you are done and rinse your mouth with water.

6.    Brush with a natural toothpaste afterwards.

Note: Some people may feel a bit ill during or after oil pulling – this is generally a good sign that your body is removing toxins and should dissipate as you become healthier.

Daily oil pulling with organic coconut oil along with consuming a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise and sleep will help your body stay sharp and ready to defend the onslaught of toxins you face each day!  And your dentist just may be amazed at your next appointment in a few months at how much better your oral health is becoming!

Not only is coconut oil a great oral health and detox tool, its other benefits will amaze you...

Civilization has drastically changed our lifestyle and the nature of our work-related activities—intensive loads, nervous stress, and huge responsibility provoke the onset of pathological processes at a young, active age.

The influence of unfavourable environmental factors leads to the formation of an excess of unstable molecules, which eat away at us like rust and lead to damage to cells and their genetic apparatus. The consequences of this are practically all modern ailments, such as diseases of the heart and vessels, diabetes, weakening of the immune system, injuries to the osteoarticular system, cancerous conditions, and premature aging.

The ability to resist the harmful influence of the environment is assisted by a system that includes a healthy lifestyle: rejection of harmful habits, comprehensive motor activity, and a balanced diet of natural products.

Pine Power cedar nut flakes produced by Siberian Pines Inc. are 100% natural, and are balanced in accordance with the body's requirements. Age-old production technologies make it possible to preserve the unique natural composition of biologically active substances.

By saturating the body with valuable plant protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, all natural vitamins, biological forms of macro-elements and trace elements, and dietary fibre, Pine Power preserves and restores the natural mechanisms of harmony and health.

The normalization of all forms of metabolism (protein, fat, carbohydrate) assists in maintaining good physical condition and preventing obesity, and makes it possible to preserve youth and attractiveness.

Using Pine Power cedar nut flakes provides the body with full antioxidant protection and a collection of all essential nutritive elements that maintain the course of metabolic processes along genetically programmed pathways.

Pine Power displays marked antioxidant activity owing to the combination of tocopherols (vitamin E) and vitamin C, which mutually reinforce each other's action by the principles of synergy. The vitamin P found in the product provides additional reinforcement for the antioxidant effects of vitamin C, and the high content of zinc assists in the stabilization of the genetic structures of the cell.

Pine Power - cedar nut flakes

The irreplaceable fatty acids found in Pine Power are extremely important structural components for the building of cell membranes and, in this manner, together with the valuable amino-acid composition, create optimal conditions for the formation of new cells that are resistant to harmful factors. The high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids imparts an anti-atherosclerotic effect to the product.

It is well known that the first signs of atherosclerotic deposits on vessel walls appear as early as 20 years of age (and even earlier), for that reason preventive treatment of the condition should be carried out as early as possible in order to reduce the risk of the onset of disorders involving circulation and its fatal complications—myocardial infarct and stroke.

The use of cedar nut oil and Pine Power cedar nut flakes prevents the development of atherosclerosis and the conditions associated with it. Pine Power's rich mineral composition is notable for its high content of potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, and iodine. The saturation of the body with biological forms of iodine gives the product the properties of having a favourable influence on the function of the thyroid gland and of preventing the development of endemic goiter, a condition prevalent among young patients.

Pine Power has the attribute of beneficially regulating the production of the reproductive hormones and maintaining the hormonal balance, which is a most important condition for preserving the reproductive function and the ability to continue the species. For women, using Pine Power provides the means to prevent disruptions of the menstrual cycle, to lower the risk of developing degenerative processes in the uterus and uterine appendages, and to lower the risk of mastopathy and complications during pregnancy and in childbirth.

For men, the use of this product increases physical strength, improves the processes of spermatogenesis, and prevents the development of pathology of the prostate gland.

Thus, the use of Pine Power cedar nut flakes may assist in the preventive treatment of infertility and in reducing the number of infertile marriages.

The presence of dietary fibre in Pine Power gives the product the qualities of a natural sorbent, which is able to bind toxins in the opening of the intestines and remove them; it improves the processes of bile secretion and the motor-evacuative function of the bowels—all this assists in detoxification and the restoration of the cleanliness of the internal environment.

As part of a programme of endoecological rehabilitation developed by the Research Institute for Clinical and Experimental Lymphangiology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Pine Power's natural vitamin-mineral complex was awarded the Great Gold Medal at the MedSib-2011 International Exhibition.

The use of Pine Power cine nut flakes imparts strength, increases endurance, and provides a means to preserve the stability of the life-support system and to assist in the prevention of the diseases of civilization.

(NaturalNews) Kombucha is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) that forms a zoolgleal mat. This unique beverage has been used for over 2000 years to improve health and fight against infection and chronic disease. The Ancient Chinese called Kombucha the "Immortal Health Elixer" as they revered it for its remarkable health benefits.

Kombucha cultures typically contains many strains of beneficial yeasts that turn sugar into alcohol. One particular strain of bacteria, Gluconacetobacter xylinus ferments the alcohol from the yeast into acetic acid. This lowers the alcohol content in the Kombucha and increases the probiotic metabolite content.

The kombucha mother

The G. xylinum bacterium makes up most of the physical structure of the kombucha mother. The kombucha mother is basically a floating piece of fibrous cellulose with these beneficial microorganisms. The presence of the mother is a sign of an active and alive kombucha. No mother is a sign of pasteurization or processing.

The acidity of the finished kombucha product prevents contamination by airborne mold and bacterial spores. The bacteria and yeasts within the kombucha are also thought to produce antimicrobial defense molecules to protect from contamination as well.

Kombucha is loaded with unique nutrients

Kombucha is loaded with organic acids, active enzymes, amino acids and polyphenol anti-oxidants. The most common components include the various organic acids such as acetic acid, butyric acid, usnic acid, oxalic acid, malic acid, gluconic acid and lactic acid. It also contains active enzymes and probiotics.

Kombucha is typically produced in a sweetened green, white or black tea. The best fermentation process uses an organic evaporated cane juice or honey although too much honey can disturb the stability of the culture. Most of the sugar will be remade into organic acids that blunt the blood sugar response so it is very low glycemic and non-inflammatory.

Improves joint function

Kombucha is rich in glucosamines which helps preserve cartilage structure and prevent joint degeneration. Glucosamines increase hyaluronic acid production within the joint which binds moisture thousands of times its weight in the joint cavity. This provides the joint with structure, moisture, lubrication and flexibility while protecting against free radical damage.

Improves digestion and immunity

Kombucha is loaded with probiotic bacteria and yeast that make their way into the gut and ward off parasites and pathogens. It is particularly good at minimizing Candida and improves digestion and nutrient assimilation. Kombucha enhances immunity by inoculating the gut with healthy microorganisms and providing anti-oxidants and enzymes.

Kombucha helps the body cleanse

This beverage is loaded with enzymes and organic acids that help to detoxify the body. This reduces the load on the pancreas, liver and kidneys and helps the body rid itself of unwanted wastes and destroy cancer cells. Kombucha is rich in glucaric acid which has potent anti-cancer activity.

Nobel Prize winning Russian author Alexander Solzhenitsyn credited drinking kombucha throughout the day, each and every day, helped him beat stomach cancer. This was during his time in the soviet labor camps. President Ronald Reagan was so moved by Solzhenitsyn's testimony that he used kombucha to help him stop the spread of his cancer in 1987.

With summer approaching and warmer weather on the way, it will soon be time to bare our bodies again, whether bathing by the pool, relaxing on the beach, or being out and about clad sparsely in more revealing clothing.  

 

To help us look and feel our best this summer, pioneering natural health store, Nutrition Centre, have created a ‘Shape Up for Summer Guide’, sharing their secrets for shedding those pounds while also managing to feel healthy, vibrant and energised.

 

Clare Galpin, Director of Nutrition Centre, says:  “We recommend that looking and feeling your best for the summer boils down to three key things: eating the right foods, taking regular exercise and supporting your healthy food intake with vitality boosting supplements. Follow our recommendations for each of these in our Shape Up for Summer Guide and you’ll be feeling radiant, alive and raring to head for the beach in tip top shape for the summer!”  

 

1.      FOOD FOR FUEL

 

Rather than viewing food as your biggest enemy when trying to shed those pounds, try changing your perception and seeing food as vital fuel for fitness and wellbeing.  Here’s some essential tips on which foods boost your energy, which leave you sluggish and which make you look and feel fantastic.   

 

Carbohydrates, protein and fats

Most importantly, ensure your diet contains plenty of carbohydrates, protein and fats, and all in combination for optimum health benefits. Carbohydrates, as found in vegetables, fruits and grains, are your main energy source and without them you’ll be feeling sluggish, tired and unwell.  A regular intake of protein, best sourced in meat, eggs and fish, is vital for helping your body repair itself and stay lean, while maintaining beautiful skin, hair and nails. Vegetarians and vegans can ingest a certain amount of protein from legumes and grains, and you can try a non dairy supplement made from soya, hemp or pea to top up your levels. The right kind of fats are essential for a healthy diet, such as oily fish, seeds, nuts, avocado and coconut oil.    

 

When it comes to considering what foods you need to cut back on, Clare Galpin recommends keeping a food journal, she says:  “Take a long hard look at what you eat and be really honest with yourself.  Do you tell yourself that you only eat loads of vegetables, but overlook that large bowl of pasta followed by the tasty piece of carrot cake?  If so, you need to be tough with yourself. It’s time to decide, it’s you or the carrot cake! A food journal requires honesty, even that one chocolate you found on the staff room table goes in your journal! And once you’ve brought awareness to your unhelpful eating habits you need to make changes.  If you’re not at your ideal weight now then you’re not eating your body’s ideal food types.”

Cut down on processed foods                                                                                                                                                 When you can make the time, making your meals from scratch helps avoid eating hidden preservatives, artificial sweeteners and hydrogenated oils. Most importantly, cut back on soda, dairy chocolate and package bought cookies, cakes and sweets. Instead when you want a snack, grab a healthy snack bar made with fruit and nuts, such as pulsin bars, nakd bars, 9 bars and bounce balls. Whatever you’re doing, keep healthy snacks at hand to avoid temptation.

Eat regularly                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Be sure to eat regular meals and don’t skip breakfast, it sets you up with energy for the day. At the very least eating fruit or making breakfast bars with oats, honey, dry fruit and nuts will be much better for you than sugar laden cereal with cow’s milk. And if you’re hungry, eat!  Don’t starve yourself, your body is telling you it needs fuel so just feed it the right stuff. And try to include six or seven portions of fruit and vegetables each day. 

Learn to cook healthily                                                                                                                                                                       If you love cooking then make the switch, get passionate about making nutrient dense meals packed with colourful vegetables. If you’ve always hated cooking, then try to learn to love it, it could be your key to enjoying how your body looks and feels. Start simple. Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring or complicated. Acquire a few different herbs and spices on your shelf, learn what goes with what meats and start making tasty dishes.

2.      EXERCISE

Exercise is crucial for shaping up for the summer. But to stay motivated, it needs to be fun, so find a form of exercise you enjoy and do it regularly. Little and often works well if you struggle to find dedicated time. Aim for at least three exercise sessions a week to start with, making sure you leave plenty of time in between to recover.  Personal trainers are a great way to get motivated if you can afford one, even if you only do a session once a fortnight.  And if you’ve no budget for the gym, that’s no excuse – some of the best things in life are free! Get out for a run or a walk, and there always those exercises you can do at home like squats, sit ups, burpees, push ups, tricep dips and jumping jacks.  And why not get a skipping rope? Try and do as many skips as you can without stopping and you’ll soon be trying to beat your score.          

And on those days when you’re struggling, when all you want to do is kick back and relax, just remind yourself why you’re doing this and what your goals are - you’re probably not going to achieve them lounging on the sofa, so get back out there and keep working on it!

3.      SUPPLEMENTS

When shaping up for summer, you may feel you want extra support to complement your efforts getting your eating right and supplements can really help with this.

Green Food supplements like spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass and nettle can be a useful addition to a healthy diet, providing vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes and antioxidants to nourish and purify the body. For a winning combination of these greens try Pukka Clean Greens Powder which can be added to juice or water and taken twice daily to cleanse your system. Alternatively, as a useful adjunct to diet and exercise, Pukka Weight Balance offers a powerful blend of organic herbs and superfoods to help bring your metabolism under control and support digestion.

Bearing in mind that most thermogenic (fat burning) supplements contain high levels of caffeine, Solgar Thermogenic Complex is a good “low caffeine” option with the same demonstrated thermogenic properties. Green Tea, a rich source of catechins shown to stimulate thermogenesis and fat oxidation is helpful for limiting weight regain; likewise Green Coffee, which also reduces blood sugar levels, increases insulin sensitivity and increases lean body mass - perfect for anyone wanting to shape up and lose fat.

Shakes can be a useful addition to a healthy diet, but don’t rely on them for all your nutrients. Supplements should never replace real food and proper eating. But shakes can be a simple and effective way to top up protein levels after a hard training session. Try the Nutiva Hemp Shake, complete with just 120 calories per shake, no artificial flavourings and packed full of easily digestible, high quality plant protein – it’s ideal for adding it to a smoothie or almond/rice milk for a fantastic high protein snack.

Clare Galpin says: “Remember that supplements are like the super boost for your body, giving you that little bit extra, but you have to work on your diet and your exercise regime to reap the real benefits supplements can offer. Get these three things sorted, stick with it, and you will be feeling alive, energised and ready to hit the beach looking in tip top shape for summer!”

An astounding 70% or more of Americans are deficient in the essential mineral magnesium.  Low levels can have deadly effects. 

Epidemiologic studies have suggested that low magnesium may be associated with higher rates of colorectal cancer among other diseases.  Now a meta-analysis confirms that higher magnesium intakes are associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer and especially colon cancer. 

Researchers from Soochow University in China analyzed eight prospective studies covering 338,979 participants. Their results, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found the highest average intake of magnesium was associated with an 11% reduction in colorectal cancer risk compared to the lowest average intake.    

In addition, the researchers found that for every 50 mg per day increase in magnesium, colon cancer was reduced by 7%.

The results are consistent with an earlier meta-analysis by Imperial College London and Wageningen University finding for every 100 mg increase in magnesium, colorectal cancer decreased by 13%. 

Unfortunately, only about 20% of Americans get the recommended daily magnesium intake of 420 mg for men or 320 mg for women.  And a deficiency can be debilitating.

Magnesium participates in over 300 known biochemical reactions in your body.  Recent research from the human genome project reveals that 3,751 human proteins have binding sites for magnesium

Magnesium supports harmonious flow within various body systems.  Without it things get stuck.  This can show up as constipation and other digestive problems, irregularities in menstrual flow and reproductive health, muscle spasms, nocturnal leg cramps, and migraine headaches.

The health benefits of magnesium are far greater than previously imagined.  This one essential mineral keeps your heart rhythm steady...promotes normal blood pressure...helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function...supports a healthy immune system...regulates blood sugar...and keeps your memory strong. 

It's not difficult to boost magnesium levels with whole foods.  One of the richest sources of magnesium is high quality chocolate. Dark chocolate has a whopping 176 mg of magnesium in a 3.5 ounce bar.  In fact, if you crave chocolate your body may be telling you it's low in magnesium. 

Other high magnesium foods include:

  • Dried seaweeds
  • Dark leafy greens (especially spinach and Swiss chard)
  • Broccoli
  • Beans
  • Whole grains (especially brown rice and quinoa)
  • Almonds, cashews, and filberts
  • Sesame seeds
  • Lentils
  • Avocados
  • Spirulina and chlorella

If you would like to take an all natural mineral supplement (which provides you with much more than just magnesium) please visit www.thehealthvideo.com to find out more about Simply Naturals a a very inexpensive wafer that contains 75 Essential minerals from plant sources. 

 

It is not hard to see where AIDS researchers totally stuffed up, it was right at the beginning.
This is Gallo's 1984 press conference where he declared HIV was the cause, this is so Hollywood.

 

While this below is Michael Gottlieb's first ever key study on gays with AIDS in 1981.
 
Gottlieb "noticed a pattern of unusual illnesses in homosexual men who'd had no contact with each other."
Not sexually transmitted was it?
Instead Gottlieb claimed this was caused by a sexually transmitted mutant cytomegalovirus which depleted T-cells?

"The diagnosis of Pneumocystis pneumonia was confirmed for all 5 patients ante-mortem by closed or open lung biopsy. The patients did not know each other and had no known common contacts or knowledge of sexual partners who had had similar illnesses. The 5 did not have comparable histories of sexually transmitted disease. Four had serologic evidence of past hepatitis B infection but had no evidence of current hepatitis B surface antigen. Two of the 5 reported having frequent homosexual contacts with various partners. All 5 reported using inhalant drugs, and 1 reported parenteral drug abuse. Three patients had profoundly depressed numbers of thymus-dependent lymphocyte cells and profoundly depressed in vitro proliferative responses to mitogens and antigens. Lymphocyte studies were not performed on the other 2 patients."
Pneumocystis Pneumonia—Los Angeles 1981

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1470612/

Michael Gottlieb either deliberately or stupidly completely ignored the fact that all the gay men had been nitrate inhalant users...
"All 5 reported using inhalant drugs, and 1 reported parenteral drug abuse."

"In writing up the case later for the New England Journal of Medicine Gottlieb claimed that "A high level of exposure of male homosexuals to cytomegalovirus-infected secretionsmay account for the occurrence of this immune deficiency."'
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and mucosal candidiasis in previously healthy homosexual men: evidence of a new acquired cellular immunodeficiency.

http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM198112103052401

This is the entire abstract, tell me if you can find any mention of poppers or nitrate inhalants after his first case study write up?
 
"Four previously healthy homosexual men contracted Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, extensive mucosal candidiasis, and multiple viral infections. In three of the patients these infections followed prolonged fevers of unknown origin. In all four cytomegalovirus was recovered from secretions. Kaposi's sarcoma developed in one patient eight months after he presented with esophageal candidiasis. All patients were anergic and lymphopenic; they had no lymphocyte proliferative responses to soluble antigens, and their responses to phytohemagglutinin were markedly reduced. Monoclonal-antibody analysis of peripheral-blood T-cell subpopulations revealed virtual elimination of the Leu-3+ helper/inducer subset, an increased percentage of the Leu-2+ suppressor/cytotoxic subset, and an increased percentage of cells bearing the thymocyte-associated antigen T10. The inversion of the T helper to suppressor/cytotoxic ratio suggested that cytomegalovirus infection was an important factor in the pathogenesis of the immunodeficient state. A high level of exposure of male homosexuals to cytomegalovirus-infected secretions may account for the occurrence of this immune deficiency. (N Engl J Med. 1981; 305:1425–31.)
That got to the Journal by December of 1981.

In 1993 though Gottlieb said later said that blaming cytomegalovirus for immune failure was a mistake.

Lastly, I focused on a possible viral etiology. As a longtime student of human immune disorders, I knew that only a virus could wreak this type of damage on an adult immune system. Because cytomegalovirus (CMV) was cultured from multiple sites, I proposed that it might be causal. This proved to be an error. CMV had been reactivated because of the immune deficiency.
However, I also suggested that a previously unrecognized toxin, microbe, or virus might be the culprit."
AIDS: The Discovery.

http://garfield.library.upenn.edu/classics1993/A1993LL19000001.pdf

The “unrecognized toxin” was completely forgotten.
If you look at the start of that admission we can see clearly Gottlieb was and still is a guy who thinks he's brilliant and was always after the fame a virologist gets when they 'discover' a 'new virus'.
I call it negligence.
It's actually worse than negligence because this led to the widespread use of a banned cancer drug called AZT.
And this action had killed 300,000 men by 1993 when they decided at the Berlin AIDS Conference to lower the dose of AZT to 'save lives' and thus HAART was invented, less AZT, patients live longer, the numbers looked good.Then it was sold to the Africans.
This has also led to appalling experiments on childrenkidnappings and jail for women who even breastfed their children under the guise of 'Child Protection'.
 
In reality since the Genome Project happened at the turn of this century we found HERV's or our Human Endogenous Retroviruses were highest in our germ cells when those reproductive cells grow and that there are retroviruses all over the body even in T-cells.
Those HERV retroviruses also appear if any of our cells become cancer or reproductive tumours.
This means in men the germ cells are really only in the testes and the anti-retrovirals will be killing less cells in men than in women, but still men get shocking side effects from being tricked into taking AIDS drugs.
So anti-retrovirals that 'work' on a women's retroviruses in her germ or reproductive cells are preventing growth of the breast tissue, the cervical tissue and the uterus and the placenta.
Women and children on these drugs in any long term are really stopping all their cells.
These are the cells that make you a woman and cells that help form the child's organ's and nervous system.
 
If you see Gottlieb's account of the 'discovery' it's clear any viral sequence would do for a journal write up,

“In the fall of 19801 collected several cases of what I thought was a new syndrome.
Thinking about publication, early in 1981,1 phoned Arnold Relman, editor of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). I spoke with assistant editor Joe Elia and presented a sketch of the new syndrome to him. He quickly put Relman on the phone. I told them I had a story that would be as significant as Legionnaire's disease.
Although I was an unknown assistant professor of medicine from UCLA, Relman was both kind and responsive. He listened to my description of the patients and the T helper cell deficiency we had observed. Since it would take a minimum of three months from the time I submitted an article until it was published, he suggested that I publish a brief article in the Center for Disease Control Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). NEJM would not view that as "prepublication" and would still consider accepting a more detailed article.
He did not promise to publish my paper, but said he'd like to see it. My June 5, 1981, report in the MMWFT allowed me to alert public health officials and practicing physicians to the new disease andto stake a claim as the "discoverer" of AIDS.”
Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and mucosal candidiasis in previously healthy homosexual men: evidence of a new acquired cellular immunodeficiency.
New Engl. J. Med. 305:1425-31, 1981.http://garfield.library.upenn.edu/classics1993/A1993LL19000001.pdf

Well that report was so 'brief' no mention of popper use appeared in it at all, the media went into 'viral panic' mode and Gottlieb got his new 'Syndrome' in the journals so he was not merely an 'unknown assistant professor of medicine from UCLA'

By also saying "However, I also suggested that a previously unrecognized toxin, microbe, or  virus might be the culprit." Gottlieb in effect was passing over the fact that Nitrates had caused immune failure and passing on the 'Virus that causes AIDS" theory and backing up Gallo with his criminal HIV test.
Gallo of course was a cancer virologist, today we now know that all cancers release retroviruses as our DNA is composed of 8% retroviruses.
We also know now in the 21st Century that retroviruses are needed for a successful pregnancy as the placenta is the organ with the most retroviruses in the body while thereproductive germ cells in people are also chock full or retroviruses.
Gallo didn't know that in 1984.
He also didn't know there are retroviruses in women's breasts as they are germ cells and in children's brains as they grow.
Robert Gallo also in 1984 had suggested using the p24 antigen test as a means of measuring "tumour size' only 2 months before he made the claim that p24 was part of HIV at a press conference.
There was never any peer review of the HIV causes AIDS claim, that peer review was only first published in Nature in 2012 when Peter Duesberg was finally begrudgingly granted a peer review paper in a journal.
There were cries of "How can we allow duesberg rubbish to be printed when HIV has been 'proven' from all quarters.

Following Gottieb's Journal claims in The New England Journal of Medicine there was a study in 1982 from Lancet that showed clearly that gay nitrate users with Kaposi's and without Kaposi's had low T-cell counts.
This was 2 years before Gallo claimed a retrovirus he named HTLV-III or HIV was causing the t-cell depletion?
Gallo also had not isolated HIV and was trying to prove HIV existed with antibodies, given the fact we now know that our genome comprises 8% retroviruses why did Gallo blame a retrovirus when it was clear all the patients were snorting drugs which cause thymus atrophy, blood poisoning and even blindness?
When the reality is that AIDS happened when a lot of gays were having fun until they got to the hospital.

"Both KS patients had regularly used amyl or butyl nitrite (AN); they had low helper/suppressor (H/S) T-lymphocyte ratios before chemotherapy"

"First, consider what may be the largest single money maker in the Gay world — the popper industry. Within the last fifteen years the use of poppers has exploded in the Gay male world, with a spillover lately among some Lesbians. Many Gay businesses, and not just bath houses, now routinely sell poppers, and their use has become as ubiquitous in bars, baths, and bookstores  as their odor. A huge number of Gay men never have sex anymore without poppers. Many are unable even to masturbate without them.
The money rolls in. A study in 1978 estimated that the popper industry was grossing $50 million a year. Today that figure is probably much higher."
POPPERS: an ugly side of gay business. Nov. 1981
http://paganpressbooks.com/jpl/EVANSPOP.HTM

"In the gay ghettos of the Seventies and early Eighties, poppers were always at the center of the action. On any given night at, say, the Anvil in Manhattan, a large percentage of the men on the dance floor would have poppers in hand, and many of the rest would be helping to pass the bottles around. Some disco clubs would even add to the general euphoria by occasionally spraying the dance floor with poppers fumes.
Michael Rumaker, in his classic book A day and a Night at the Baths, describes the tubs as "permeated with that particularly inert, greasy odor of poppers. Wherever you went, the musky chemical smell of it was constantly in your nostrils." He found himself heading to the single, small window, in order to gasp a few breaths of "something other than the cold, kerosene smell of amyl."
My own most vivid memory of poppers in action goes back to Fire Island, sometime in the Seventies - that legendary time. Yes, children, I was there, I remember it. I was vistiting friends in the Pines, and was spending a couple of hours at the disco one night. Across the room, I noticed an acquaintance of mine, the writer George Whitmore, dancing up a storm and inhaling liberally from a poppers bottle which he kept in the pocket of his jeans. Somehow in the course of the evening, the bottle broke, and the contents spilled all over George's leg, giving him a terrible and very unsightly burn. It made me wonder what kind of damage inhaling the stuff must do."

And poppers are still causing blood poisoning, heart attacks and blindness to this day.
 
"Both the popularity of and legal tolerance for poppers have led to the perception that these drugs are relatively innocuous.1 Here, we describe four patients who were seen within a few months of one another and who had prolonged visual loss as a result of damage to foveal photoreceptors shortly after inhaling poppers.
In January 2010, Patient 1, a 27-year-old woman, presented with an 11-day history of a reduction in bilateral vision and a “central bright dot” in both eyes. The night before the onset of symptoms, she had attended a party, at which both she and Patient 2 had inhaled poppers (brand name, Jungle Juice) and consumed approximately half a bottle of high-grade alcohol."

The reality is that a lot of gay guys were having a disco to end all disco's while the Reagan Christians surround them in a few ghetto's and put the voodoo on them even more
The other logical 'this poison could cause AIDS' claim is that during the early 1980's Hot Oil sexual lubricants were sold with Benzenes to gays in particular with levels that would cause immune failure and cancers.
 
Stephen Byrnes writing in 1997 provided an example of the Spanish oil incident where people just withered away and wasted from benzene poisoning.
 
"In short, the victims of TOS became ill from ingesting benzene-contaminated olive oil. The symptoms of this condition were virtually identical to American pellagra: immunosuppression, fever, chills, sweats, rashes, eosinophilia, muscle wasting, cough, dyspnea, muscle cramps, dry eyes and mouth, skin lesions, dementia, peripheral neuropathy, pneumonia, chronic hepatitis, lymph swelling, and opportunistic infections. Additionally, cellular and immunological abnormalities occurred: an inversion of CD4/CD8 cell ratios, production of autoantibodies to collagen DNA, and reduced T and B cellular responses to mitogens. It was proposed that the autoantibody production was the result of an increase in the CD4/CD8 T cell ratios.
 
While it is true that the first cases of AIDS, called GRID back then, were reported to the CDC in 1981 by Dr. Michael Gottlieb, the first cases of KS and AIDS were seen in the gay community beginning in 1978 and the mysterious new disease seemed to only strike two groups of people: bottoms (passive in anal intercourse), and "fistees" (those who liked to be fisted, or have someone's fist and arm anally inserted into them). Exclusive tops were not affected, unless they were heavy drug users. Those with a preference for oral sex, giving or receiving, may have gotten other venereal ailments, but they did not catch the new disease. What was it that bottoms and fistees had in common, besides poppers to relax the smooth muscles of the anus? Lubricant and lots of it if they were promiscuous.
Were new lubricants introduced to the gay community in 1978? Previously, gay men had used KY jelly, Crisco, or baby oil for anal sex but in 1978 there were new lubricants introduced and heavily marketed to the gay community, viz., Lube and Performance, as advertisements in back issues of gay periodicals show. As a matter of fact, 1978 marked the dawn of "special" lubricants, both "hot" and regular, formulated for and used by gay men. They were all oil-based and contained very high amounts of acetone and benzoic acid in them. The oils were, like the bad olive oil in Madrid, "denatured." Curiously, as these lubricants became available to gay men in other countries, via mail order, AIDS began to appear in those places.

And to this day FDA regulation of lubricants is questionable, I know one at my supermarket contains anti-freeze to get the 'hot' feel..
 
"Although most people will list only K-Y Jelly when asked to recall the names of personal lubricants, hundreds of the products are being used for sex across the globe. These sex aids are designed to make things easier. So it’s a little unsettling that experiments carried out in recent years have indicated that some of the products might be smoothing the way for disease transmission.

Used to reduce friction and increase pleasure during intercourse, lubricants are about a $219 million market in the U.S. alone, according to the Chicago-based market research firm SymphonyIRI Group.

But a handful of studies have called into question the safety of these sex aids, although none have shown cut-and-dried proof of risk. Some of the experiments have shown that personal lubricants can damage cells lining both the vagina and rectum, potentially making the body more vulnerable to sexually transmitted infections (STIs). And one epidemiological investigation, published early this year, reported that participants who consistently used personal lubricants for rectal intercourse had a higher prevalence of STIs, such as chlamydia, than inconsistent users (Sex. Transm. Dis., DOI:10.1097/olq.0b013e318235502b).

Though this list isn’t by any means complete, some questionable ingredients include: parabens, petrochemicals, benzene derivatives such as sodium benzoate, methyl, ethyl and propylparaben, and benzoate of soda.

Then there are still shocking amounts of hydroquinone being used by black women without anyone telling them?
 
"Attention is drawn to the widespread use of bleaching preparations by Black women. These products often contain hydroquinone. They act efficiently as bleaching agents, but chronic oversaturation of the skin with hydroquinone eventually produces ochronosis. This complication has reached epidemic proportions in the Transvaal. Although the assay of hydroquinone in cosmetic products has not yet been standardized, we present some provisional results. The clinical, social and industrial aspects are also significant."

People will say "But what about Africa? Aren't they all dying from HIV?" 
Well not all of the Africans are dying from HIV.
But housing and the food situation is desperate in South Africa, the 'AIDS country' and it is no wonder people get sick.
I feel lucky.
In Australia of course there is no AIDS we are walking steaks from the night before, the burger at lunch, the bacon and eggs for breakfast, Chiko roll and Breaker at tea, no worries here.
It's hardly appropriate to be saving up to give these people drugs like AZT and Nevirapinewhen they are starving and the more money spent on these toxic drugs the less there will be for any real hospital services.

South Africa is basically a mining dump with lots of pesticides from farming thrown everywhere too.
 
"Feeding schemes based on school garden produce have been proposed as an effective solution to food insecurity and hunger among learners in South Africa. However, few studies have looked at the potential contamination of school food gardens when situated near mine tailing dams."
 
"Results. High levels of arsenic were found in the school soil samples, and elevated concentrations of lead and mercury in the school vegetables. Calculation of the estimated daily intake for a child of 30 kg, however, indicated that levels of lead, mercury and arsenic in vegetables were within acceptable limits. However, the levels of lead in the vegetable samples were high across all three sites.
Conclusion. Further investigation and research should be undertaken to assess the source/s and extent of public exposure to heavy metals in vegetables in South Africa."

"Older in?service gold miners in South Africa have a high prevalence of PTB, which is significantly associated with dust and silica exposure, even in the absence of silicosis. Limitations include a survivor workforce and the use of cumulative exposures based on current exposures.

Anyway the end result of Gottlieb's 1981 failure to mention Nitrates as a cause of AIDS was every virologist in town and media outlet went orgasmic over Gottlieb's 'New Virus' and by the time Robert Gallo held his press conference about HIV causing AIDS in 1984 everyone was hypnotised by their voodoo magic which continues to caste it's spell to this day....
 
“The first recognized cases of AIDS were reported in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) on June 5, 1981. I recall this report vividly. A few months earlier, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had begun sending an advance copy of the MMWR text to state health departments. The advance text of the June 5 MMWR had a lead article on the sudden and unexplained finding of five apparently unrelated cases of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in five young gay men from Los Angeles. The MMWR text was received in my office just before our weekly Tuesday afternoon staff meeting was to start. I handed the text to Tom Ault, who was responsible for the state's venereal disease field unit and asked him to have some of our federal- or state-assigned staff in Los Angeles assist in the investigation of these cases. I remember saying to him that it may not turn out to be much of anything, but it may be the start of something. I never imagined that that something would eventually develop into a worldwide epidemic of disease and death.
In the ensuing weeks and months, it became apparent that the mysterious illness reported from Los Angeles was also present among gay men in San Francisco.”

The dead might have something else to say about it??
 
"Those who have eyes to see are witnessing genocide-the genocide of gay men. Millions of dollars are now being spent on an international advertising campaign, "Living With HIV", in which gay men and other members of "risk groups" are being told:
Get tested for antibodies to HIV [the alleged "AIDS virus"] -- if you "test positive" you need "medical intervention" which could "put time on your side". The "medical intervention" is AZT (also known as Retrovir and zidovudine), and the campaign is paid for, directly and indirectly, by Burroughs-Wellcome, the manufacturer of AZT.
The campaign consists of a phoney diagnosis followed by a lethal treatment. Already tens of thousands of objectively healthy gay men have been scared and bullied and bamboozled into taking AZT, allegedly in order to "slow the progression to AIDS". Optimism regarding their prognosis would be foolish. Except for the lucky few who stop "treatment" in time, they will die. Death is the expected biochemical consequence of taking AZT, for the fundamental action of the drug is to terminate DNA synthesis, the very life process itself. As Joseph Sonnabend has stated, "AZT is incompatible with life". Without a single benefit demonstrated by honest and competent research, AZT can do nothing but kill."
