    NUTS

    People who ate nuts 7-times or more per week were 20% less likely to die during follow-up

    People who ate nuts were 7% to 20% less likely to die during follow-up compared to people who did not eat nuts according to a study looking at data from 76,464 women in the Nurses’ Health Study (1980-2010) and 42,498 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (1986-2010).

    Comparing those who ate nuts to those who did not, they found a:

    • 7% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts less than once per week
    • 11% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts once (1) per week
    • 13% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 2-4 times per week
    • 15% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 5-6 times per week
    • 20% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 7 or more times per week

    “In two large, independent cohorts of nurses and other health professionals, the frequency of nut consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality, independently of other predictors of death,” the authors of the study concluded.

    SODIUM & POTASSIUM INTAKE

    Sodium intake 3-5 g per day plus potassium intake of 4.6 g per day, lowest risk of death

    People consuming 3000 to 5000 mg of sodium per day plus a high potassium intake (greater than 4600 mg per day) had the lowest risk of death during an average follow-up of 8.2 years according to data from 103,5700 people from 18 countries.

    DOCTORS

    Doctors are blind to drug-induced side effects: Example Kurt’s dizziness and fainting

    I learned nine (9) things about doctors in the last 17 years of my parents’s life (1994-2011) as I watched my mother suffer tragically and die 5-10 years prematurely because of all the drugs that she was given.

    For 17 years (1994-2011), I watched doctors do things that made absolutely no sense to me.

    Doctors would often do the exact opposite of what I thought they should do.

    For example, they would give my mother a drug, my mother would get worse, but rather than stopping the drug and trying something else, they would double the dose of the drug or add another drug which only made my mother worse and worse.

    I spent years trying to figure out why doctors did these things which caused my mother to suffer tragically and die 5-10 years prematurely.

    I learned nine (9) things about doctors during this time.

    The first thing that I learned is that doctors are blind to drug-induced side effects.

    FISH CONSUMPTION

    The one-fifth of men consuming the most fish were 9% less likely to die

    The one-fifth of men consuming the most non-fried fish were 9% less likely to die during a 16-year follow-up than the one-fifth of men consuming the least according to a study of 240,729 men and 180,580 women from the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study.

    Men consuming the most were

    • 10% less likely to die from a heart attack or stroke
    • 6% less likely to die from cancer
    • 20% less likely to die from lower respiratory disease, and
    • 37% less likely to die from chronic liver disease

    Women consuming the most were

    • 10% less likely to die from a heart attack or stroke, and
    • 38% less likely to die from Alzheimer’s

    However, women with the highest fried fish consumption was associated with a 3% higher risk of dying (the one-fourth consuming the most

    FASTING & TYPE 2 DIABETES

    How to cure Type 2 diabetes as described by Jason Fung, MD

    Modern medicine says that Type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease. This belief is wrong.

    Type 2 diabetes does not have to be progressive.

    You do not have to take insulin or other diabetes drugs for the rest of your life.

    You can cure your Type 2 diabetes.

    Below is a summary of a paper coauthored by Jason Fung, MD, author of the book The Complete Guide to Fasting and the book The Diabetes Code, describing three (3) people who cured their Type 2 diabetes by doing intermittent fasting, fasting 24 hours per day, 3 times per week.

    DANGERS OF LEAD

    Low levels of lead exposure kill an estimated 412,000 people per year in the US

    Low levels of lead exposure kill an estimated 412,000 people per year in the US according to a 2018 analysis of 14,289 adults who were followed for an average of 19.3 years.

    “Our findings suggest that, of 2.3 million deaths every year in the USA, about 400,000 are attributable to lead exposure, an estimate that is about ten times [10X] larger than the current one,” the authors of the paper note.

    MERCURY & AUTISM

    Autism and ADHD are caused by mercury toxicity according to Boyd Haley, PhD

    Autism, autism spectrum disorder and ADHD (attention deficit disorder) are caused by different levels of mercury toxicity according to Boyd Haley, PhD.

    Studies have found that mercury fillings / dental amalgams are the major source of mercury body burden in most people.

    Alzheimer’s and autism are caused by mercury toxicity as noted by Boyd Haley, PhD

    They did lots of autopsies in the 1500’s, 1600’s, 1700’s and 1800’s, and yet Alzheimer’s was not identified until 1906, even though it is very easy to see an Alzheimer’s brain because it is 25% smaller than a normal brain as noted by Boyd Haley, PhD, the world’s leading expert on mercury toxicity.

    Why would this be?

    They started putting mercury fillings / dental amalgams in people’s mouths in the 1830’s, 1840’s and 1850’s.

    So by 1906, people had been breathing mercury vapor for 50 years of their life.

    Boyd Haley, PhD has said many times that mercury causes Alzheimer’s.

    Autism was first described by Leo Kanner in 1943.

    They started putting mercury in vaccines and on seed corn in 1932-1933.

    Alzheimer’s and autism did not exist before humans were exposed to mercury in this way.

    CANCER / POTASSIUM

    Decreased potassium in cells may help explain why obesity increases risk of cancer

    Obesity is associated with an increased risk of numerous cancers. One of the reasons for this may be because obesity increases concentrations of sodium in cells, and decreases potassium. This according to a very interesting paper from 1996.

    STATINS

    How much longer will you live if you take a statin for 5 years? 13 days.

    How much longer will you live if you take a statin for 5 years?

    13 days according to a 2019 analysis by researchers from Denmark.

    That’s it, 13 days.

    To put this in perspective, the authors of the paper noted that “A different study evaluated the effects of regular exercise and a calorie restricted diet in healthy males, [demonstrated] a postponement of death by 6.2 months [189 days],” and “smoking cessation in a high-risk population postponed death by around 31 months [930 days].”

    So if you stop smoking, you will live, on average, an extra 930 days. If you exercise and reduce your calories, you will live, on average, an extra 189 days. And if you take a statin, you will live, on average, an extra 13 days.
