    PALEO DIET

    Women following Paleo diet lost 7 lbs in four weeks

    Women who followed a Paleolithic (Paleo) diet lost an average of 7 lbs in four weeks (4.3% of their body weight) compared to 2.6 lbs (1.7% of their body weight) for women following a standard Australian diet as recommended by The Australian National Health and Medical Research Council according to a new study from researchers at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia.

    The Paleo diet “encourages consumption of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts and eggs”, while “all products of agricultural origin, grains, legumes and dairy are excluded” the paper notes.

    ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

    Artificial sweeteners during pregnancy associated with 2X greater risk of infant being overweight

    Women who consumed artificially sweetened beverages during pregnancy were 2.2 times as likely to have an infant that was overweight at the age of one-year than women who did not consume artificial sweeteners according to a new study from Canadian researchers.

    “These effects were not explained by maternal BMI, diet quality, total energy intake, or other obesity risk factors,” according to the paper.

    “There were no comparable associations for sugar-sweetened beverages,” the paper also notes.

    “To our knowledge, we provide the first human evidence that maternal consumption of artificial sweeteners during pregnancy may influence infant BMI,” the authors of the study conclude.

    RIBIDIUM FOR DEPRESSION

    180 to 720 mg of rubidium chloride had a significant antidepressant effect in two-thirds of patients

    Thirty-one female patients hospitalized for depression were given from 180 to 720 mg of rubidium chloride per day.

    “By week 2, at least two-thirds had improved significantly” the paper notes.

    A dose of 360 to 720 mg of rubidium chloride per day given for 60 days “showed a marked and rapid anti-depressive action” in 18 females and 2 males with major depression according to a 1993 study from Italy.

    RIBIDIUM FOR DEPRESSION

    540 mg of rubidium chloride for 3 weeks had antidepressant effect in 15 depressed people

    Fifteen (15) hospitalized patients with depression were treated with 540 mg of rubidium chloride per day for three weeks according to a 1996 study.

    “Speed therapeutic efficacy has been shown, with lack of side effects,” the paper, written in Italian, notes.

    Rubidium causes stimulation of dopamine release which reduces depressive symptoms according to the paper.

    RIBIDIUM FOR DEPRESSION

    History of the mineral rubidium as an antidepressant

    Here is a brief history of the use of the mineral rubidium for depression as outlined in a 2008 paper from Italy.

    • “In 1891, the cardiologist Bottkin occasionally observed that cardiac patients treated with [rubidium chloride] experienced increased well-being compared to patients treated with [potassium chloride].”
    • “In 1969, Dr. Meltzer discovered that the effects of rubidium in primates were the opposite of those produced by lithium.”
    • “In 1976, the physiologist Mannistò observed that rubidium affects behavior in both animals and humans, as do amphetamines.

    RUBIDIUM FOR DEPRESSION

    Rubidium deficiency occurs in dialysis patients; may be the cause of their depression

    Depression is a common problem in dialysis patients.

    Dialysis patients have a rubidium deficiency, and rubidium supplementation has been shown to have an antidepressant effect according to Caterina Canavese, MD, an Italian researcher who has done research on this ultratrace mineral related to its antidepressant effects.

    60% Lower Rubidium in the Central Nervous System,
    13% Lower Rubidium in Serum

    She notes that dialysis patients have 60% lower levels of rubidium in their central nervous system than normal patients—an average of 2250 ng per gram in dialysis patients versus 5490 ng per gram controls—and a 13% lower rubidium content in blood serum—an average of 304 mcg per liter versus 350 mcg per liter.

    Rubidium is an ultra-trace mineral used by humans.

    Shouldn’t rubidium supplementation be tried first in these patients?

    RIBIDIUM FOR DEPRESSION

    Rubidium content of foods

    Rubidium is an ultra-trace mineral used by humans which has been shown to have an antidepressant effect.

    Here is the rubidium content of a couple of foods from a 1995 paper which analyzed 137 foods for their rubidium content.

    Coffee contains 40 mg of rubidium per kilogram (2.2 pounds) dry material.

    Black tea contains 100 mg of rubidium per kilogram (2.2 pounds) dry material.

    Eight-five percent (85%) of the rubidium pass into these beverages.

    HYPOTHYROIDISM

    Elevated Reverse T3 correlates BEST with hypothyroidism, NOT elevated TSH, & can be cause by mercury

    Elevated levels of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) in the blood are NOT the best way to diagnose hypothyroidism as modern medicine has been led to believe according to a yet-to-be-published study by Davis Lamson, ND.

    The thing that correlated best with a clinical diagnosis of hypothyroidism—that is, a diagnosis made on the basis of medical signs and patient-reported symptoms rather than lab tests—is elevated levels of Reverse T3 thyroid hormone.

    Reverse T3 blocks T3 thyroid receptors which reduces metabolism.

    Results of Dr. Lamson’s study were described by Jonathan Wright, MD in an interview he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    Dr. Lamson works with Dr. Wright at Dr. Wright’s clinic.

    By blocking T3 receptors, Reverse T3 is natures’ way of protecting us from starving so quickly by reducing metabolism.

    But that’s not all.

    They also found that in people with elevated Reverse T3 levels, that 95% of the time, these people had elevated levels of mercury or lead or cadmium or other heavy metals, and when they got rid of the mercury, lead or other heavy metals, levels of Reverse T3 returned to normal.

    This is of interest to me because I recently found out that I am suffering from mercury toxicity, and I have had thyroid problems, feeling cold and having a low body temperature, as low as 96.3°F over several months when my symptoms of mercury toxicity were at their worst in the Fall of 2015.

    BLOOD DONATION

    Each additional annual blood donation was associated with a 7.5% lower risk of death

    Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that blood donors experience lower mortality than the general population, but some have suggested that this may be due to healthier people donating blood.

    A 2015 analysis of the Scandinavian Donation and Transfusion database (SCANDAT) found that after adjusting for the internal healthy donor effect, each additional annual donation of blood was associated with a 7.5% decreased risk of death over some number of years.

    (I’m waiting for a copy of the study to find out the average number of years of follow-up.)

    In other words, the more frequent someone donated blood, the lower their risk of death.

    The analyses included 1,182,495 donors of whom 15,401 died during 9,526,627 person-years of follow-up.

    BLOOD DONATION

    Men who donated blood were 88% less likely to have a heart attack over 9 years

    Men who donated blood were 88% less likely to have a heart attack during a 9-year followup compared to men who did not donate blood according to a 1998 study from Finland.

    This was after adjusting for age and coronary disease risk factors.

    Only one (1) man out of 153 (0.7%) who had donated blood in the previous 24 months before baseline had a heart attack during 1984 to 1995, whereas 316 men of 2529 (12.5%) who had not donated blood had a heart attack.

    “These findings suggest that frequent blood loss through voluntary blood donations may be associated with a reduced risk of acute myocardial infarction in middle-aged men,” the authors of the study concluded.

    PROSTATE CANCER

    Fat intake is not associated with prostate cancer

    Fat intake is not associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer according to a 2015 review of the research.

    Saturated fat intake was not.

    Polyunsaturated fat was not.

    Monounsaturated fat was not.

    And total fat intake was not.

    The same was true for advanced stage prostate cancer (with slightly different relative risks than those shown below).

    “Current published cohort studies suggest no association between total fat, saturated fat, or unsaturated fat intake and the risk for [prostate cancer],” the authors of the paper concluded.

    SATURATED FAT

    Saturated fat is not associated with cardiovascular disease, 2010 study

    A 2010 meta-analysis which looked at data from 21 studies with 5-23 years of follow-up on 347,747 people found that dietary saturated fat was not associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (which includes heart attack and stroke).

    “A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD [coronary heart disease] or CVD [cardiovascular disease],” the authors concluded.

    DENTAL AMALGAMS

    100-600 times more mercury coming off of dental amalgams than the American Dental Association claims

    In the attached video, Boyd Haley, PhD, a biochemist and chemist and retired Professor of Chemistry from the University of Kentucky who has been studying the toxic effects of mercury since 1987, tells that the amount of mercury vapor coming off of mercury fillings / dental amalgams is 133 to 666 times more than what the American Dental Association is telling us.

    He tells that in 2000 (when he was 60-years-old), that he was a sick person and could feel his health declining badly (due to suffering from mercury toxicity from his dental amalgams.)

    The exact same thing happened to me.

    STATINS

    Statins can cause muscle rupture

    Statins can cause muscle rupture according to a new paper which, they say, has not previously been reported.

    They found 15 cases in a Netherlands’ database and 165 cases in the EudraVigilance database which is the European Union (EU) database for managing suspected adverse reactions to drugs.

    They noted that this occurred “during normal daily activities” in a number of patients.

    SATURATED FAT

    Study: Replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated fat does NOT lower the risk of death

    Reanalysis of an old study, the Minnesota Coronary Experiment (MCE; 1968-73) which replaced saturated fat with vegetable oil rich in linoleic acid (an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat) from corn oil and corn oil polyunsaturated margarine, found NO benefit in reducing all-cause mortality—actually there was a 7% GREATER risk of death in the vegetable oil group, but the difference was not statistically significant—and NO benefit in reducing coronary heart disease mortality—actually there was a 13% GREATER risk of death from coronary heart disease in the vegetable oil group, but the difference was not statistically significant.

    They also found that for every 30 mg/dL reduction in cholesterol levels in people 65 and older at baseline was associated with a 35% GREATER risk of death during the study.

    “Paradoxically, MCE participants who had greater reductions in serum cholesterol had a higher, rather than lower, risk of death,” the paper notes.

    The analysis was done by researchers at the US National Institutes of Health.

    POLYUNSATURATED FAT / BAD DIETARY ADVICE

    Substituting dietary saturated fats with omega-6 linoleic acid INCREASED deaths by 62% over 5 years

    The article was previously published on August 7, 2015.

    Men who had experienced a recent coronary event and were told to replace dietary saturated fats (from animal fats, common margarines, and shortenings) with omega-6 polyunsaturated fat linoleic acid (from safflower oil and safflower oil polyunsaturated margarine) were 62% MORE likely to die—1.62 times more likely to die—over the next 5 years compared to men who were not given any dietary advice according to a recent analysis of an old study called The Sydney Diet Heart Study, a randomized controlled trial conducted from 1966 to 1973.

    After five years, 17.6% of the men in the intervention group had died versus 11.8% in the control group.

    The analysis was done by researchers at the US National Institutes of Health.

    Women with the highest sun exposure had life expectancy 0.6 to 2.1 years longer than sun avoiders

    “Nonsmokers who avoided sun exposure had a life expectancy similar to smokers in the highest sun exposure group, indicating that avoidance of sun exposure is a risk factor for death of a similar magnitude as smoking,” according to a 2016 study from Sweden.

    “Compared to the highest sun exposure group, life expectancy of avoiders of sun exposure was reduced by 0.6–2.1 years,” the paper notes.

    VACCINES & AUTISM

    CDC whistleblower admits that the MMR vaccine increases autism risk

    William Thompson, PhD, a CDC epidemiologist turned whistleblower, admitted to committing fraud in order to hide the fact that they had found a relationship between the timing of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Vaccine and an increased risk of autism in black boys.

    Thompson’s statement starts off by saying,

    “My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998.

    “I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics.

    “The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism.

    “Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”

    See his statement here.

    A reanalysis of the CDC data which was done by Brian Hooker, PhD, who Thompson had confessed his fraud to, found that black males given the MMR vaccine before the age of 36 months (3 years) were 3.4 times more likely to get autism than those given the vaccine later.

    “The results show a strong relationship between child age at the administration of the first MMR and autism incidence exclusively for African American boys which could indicate a role of the vaccine in the etiology of autism within this population group. This particular analysis was not completed in the original Destefano et al. (CDC) study,” Hooker’s paper notes.

    CHEMTRAILS

    Chemtrails: What are they spaying the skies with? Aluminum, which is bad news for our health

    I have lived in Southern California for 36 years where we used to have beautiful blue skies more than half the days of the year.

    But this year, for the first time, I have noticed ugly, hazy skies, day after day for several months.

    Aluminum levels 100-200 times higher in our bodies from chemtrails than mercury or lead

    A couple of weeks ago, I heard Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD, who has been helping people detox from heavy metals (mercury, lead, etc) for 30 years, say that a detox method done in Germany called Apheresis Therapy, where they take your entire blood volume out of one arm, put it through a filter (a deep sea sponge, a technique which was invented by the Japanese) and put it back into the other arm, have found that Americans have very high levels of aluminum in their bodies, hundreds of times higher (100-200 times higher according to Dr. Klinghardt) than mercury or lead, and that this is coming from the government spraying the skies to try and cool the planet which are known as chemtrails or geoengineering.

    He says that a testing method in England has found that our DNA is plastered with aluminum (coming from these chemtrails.)

    A one-minute audio clip of Dr. Klinghardt talking about this is posted here..

    The audio clip is sped up 1.5 times to make the clip shorter.

    The audio clip is 56 minutes into the first hour of an interview Dr. Klinghardt did in 2014 on One Radio Network with Patrick Timpone which is available here.

    This is bad news for our health.

    It makes me want to scream.

    Aluminum has no function in the human body or any other species according to Dr. Klinghardt.

    Somebody needs to lead a campaign to stop this spraying of the skies for the health of us all.

    I will post a separate article about ways to get aluminum out of our bodies.

    Watch the 15 minute video on YouTube titled “Pilots, Doctors and Scientists Tell the Truth About Chemtrails” which is embedded below.

    ALUMINUM

    Sweating seems to be the major way that we get rid of aluminum from our bodies

    Sweating seems to be the MAJOR way that we get rid of aluminum from our bodies (which we are all accumulating from the government spraying the skies with aluminum to try and cool the planet as previously described here.

    A 2014 paper titled “Aluminium in human sweat” notes that:

    “These data [measuring sweat from 20 healthy people]... strongly suggest that perspiration is the major route of excretion of systemic aluminium in humans.”

    Later they say…

    “If sweating is the major route for the removal of systemic aluminium from the body then this observation puts into question the practice of disrupting or blocking perspiration using antiperspirants and aluminium-based antiperspirants specifically.”

    CELL PHONES & BRAIN CANCER

    896 hours or more of cell phone use associated with 2.6 to 2.9 times greater risk of brain tumors

    People who had a used their cell phones for 896 hours or more for lifetime use had 2.6 to 2.9 times greater risk of brain tumors compared to people who were not regular cell phone users according to a 2014 study from France called the CERENAT which was a multicenter case-control study carried out in four areas in France in 2004–2006.

    People who used their cell phones to make calls for an average of 15 hours or more per month—30 minutes per day—were 4.2 times more likely to have a brain tumor than those who were not regular cell phone users.

    Practical advice: Use earbuds with a microphone when making talking on the phone so that the cell phone is not next to your head / brain.

    VACCINES

    Flu vaccine’s effect is very modest concludes the Cochrane Collaboration

    “Influenza vaccines have a very modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost in the general population, including pregnant women,” concludes a review by the Cochrane Collaboration.

    They note that “at least 40 people would need vaccination to avoid one [influenza-like illness] case… and 71 people would need vaccination to prevent one case of influenza. Vaccination shows no appreciable effect on working days lost or hospitalisation.”

    They also note that “Over 200 viruses cause influenza and [influenza-like illness], producing the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches, pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot distinguish between them as both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines may only be effective against influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses.”

    Their 2010 review on the same subject also noted that, “The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious notoriety of the studies.”

    The 2010 review also noted that, “There is no evidence that they affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission [of the flu to other people].”

    GARLIC & CANCER

    People with a high intake of garlic had 39% less oral cancer

    People consuming a high intake of garlic, which was not quantified, had 39% less cancer of the oral cavity and pharynx compared to people who had a low intake of garlic according to a 2006 study from Milano, Italy which used data from an integrated network of Italian and Swiss case-control studies.

    (Subjects were simply asked if they had a low intake, moderate intake or high intake of garlic.)
