The fruits of the medical industrial complex

The moral collapse of Western Medicine

How in the world did the U.S. change from having the best scientists in the world who were discovering vitamins, minerals, vaccines and cures for disease, to modern times, where the only medicine available is toxic with horrific side effects, and where nutrient-void, chemical-laden food is being sold at almost every restaurant and grocery store, all in the name of corporate profits that keep the public sick and in need of expensive care?

In the early 1900’s, America was chock full of small farms and families who ate fresh food from those farms. Cancer, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s barely existed because the soil was rich in nutrients and minerals, and if you did get sick, a doctor would come to your home and give you some herbal tinctures or natural remedies, and that was that.

Then, after World War II, many families left their rural farms and moved closer to factories and began eating processed food that was canned and bagged, lacking the nutrients they had just a decade earlier. Then, fast food operations like McDonalds and Burger King opened up franchises all over America, feeding the public saturated fat and sugar-loaded meals that were hot, cheap, and convenient.

The United States of America is the land of the free and the home of … toxic food and venomous medicine, with chronic care waiting for its next 80 million victims. Here are some basic statistics of a country riddled with disease:

Cancer: 1,500,000 diagnosed each year; over 50% will die of it.
Diabetes: 25,000,000 people are diabetics right now (including children); 80,000,000 are borderline.
Heart Disease and Strokes: 81,000,000 (every third adult) has some type of cardiovascular disease.
Alzheimer’s Disease: 5,400,000 have Alzheimer’s right now (every 8th senior)
Birth defects: One in every 33 babies is born with one (accounts for 20% of all infant deaths). (http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/birthdefects/data.html)

Most U.S. politicians have no ethics and no morals

Once upon a time, insider trading was a scary law that meant prison time for those who violated it. Now, politicians make money off wars they declare themselves, and health insurance companies invest in fast food operations that slowly kill their own clients. Pharmaceutical companies (Merck, Pfizer, Bayer, Bristol Meyers, etc.) are run by CEO’s who served as Governors, Senators, and heads of the FDA, and the Supreme Court itself seats Judges who worked for major pharmaceutical firms, and who will return to those jobs after writing new legislation to benefit their current investments.

Make no mistake, the pesticides used on most U.S. farms give humans cancer, and the politicians who support genetically mutated foods know it. GMO means that the seedlings of fruits and vegetables are spliced with toxic pesticides in a lab, so even if you wash off your food, you are still eating dioxin, the same toxic chemical (Agent Orange) the U.S. dumped on Vietnam which gave our own soldiers cancer.

The agencies you trust so much (FDA/CDC/AMA/CDC/ACS/Major Insurance Companies) support toxic food and toxic medicine

Politicians are supposed to represent the greater good of the people, but now politics is about bastardizing the system for as much money as possible before getting ousted from office 4 years later. Food, medicine and vaccines have become toxic catapults for profiteering by Big Pharma and Government agencies (undercover corporations).

Ever wonder how health insurance companies drum up future business? They invest in corporations whose products cause chronic degenerative disease, driving people’s health care costs through the roof. The U.S. and Canadian health insurance giantsown nearly $2 billion worth of stock in fast food giants like McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, and Taco Bell.

Marvelous mangosteen!

Wonder fruit: Mangosteen

Times of India

No, this isn’t some exotic variety of mango. Native to Indonesia, Mangosteen is sweet and tangy, juicy, and somewhat fibrous, with an inedible, reddish purple rind.

Researchers often call it a wonder fruit due to its innumerable healing properties…

- Mangosteen contains more than 40 biologically-active, natural chemical compounds called Xanthones – powerful antioxidants and immune system boosters. Alpha-mangosteen, for example, is a very potent antioxidant. Gamma-mangosteen is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Garcinone E is a strong anti-tumour agent.

- Scientists have found that the fruit is helpful in preventing and possibly even stopping a wide range of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic diseases.

- Mangosteen also contains Polysaccharides. This is a highly potent anti-cancer and anti-bacterial plant compound. They help block a mutated cell’s ability to stick to healthy cells to help stop the spread of cancer, and are specially effective against intracellular bacteria.

 

Food as medicine

Top 5 super foods with healing powers

You might know about many nutritious whole foods, which are rich in healthy nutrients. But, do you know about the significance of a few super foods that help you heal?

These foods have multiple healing effects like fighting cancer, reducing cholesterol levels and guarding against heart diseases. Intrigued? Let’s take a look…

Kiwis. These tiny packs of goodness have high levels of Vitamin C. Rich in potassium, kiwis have more fiber in them when compared to apples and bananas. Because of phytonutrients present in them, they are extremely good for people who have heart disease, cancer or any respiratory disease. They have natural blood-thinning properties, which further help in lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol and blood pressure in the body. It is always best to eat the kiwis as soon as you cut them as they contain enzymes that lose certain properties once exposed to air. Aim to eat one to two kiwis a day.

Cherries. Cherries are packed with antioxidant value and vitamins. They are slightly high on natural sugar content, but they’re still very low-carb and are an excellent source of important fiber. Cherries are amazing with feta and greens. With a glycemic index of just 22, one should go for a daily serving of cherries, when they are in season locally.

Beans. Other than fiber, beans are also rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients. They have low glycemic index levels, which helps in regulating blood sugar levels and insulin production. They are low in energy-density levels i.e. they provide sustained energy, maximizing health benefits. Also, known as miracle foods, beans deliver a high amount of antioxidants to the body. Enriched with potassium, magnesium, vitamin B1 and B2, and vitamin K, they are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. One should go for a minimum of two servings of beans on a weekly basis.

The high cholesterol hoax

Women with high cholesterol live longer, have fewer heart attacks and strokes

If the diagnosis of high cholesterol sounds like a death sentence to your ears, you may be the victim of cholesterol propaganda. It’s not uncommon to believe that lower is better when it comes to cholesterol, but new research shows otherwise. In fact, a recent study in Norway says women with high cholesterol live longer and suffer from fewer heart attacks and strokes than those with lower cholesterol.

Can High Cholesterol Save Your Life?

Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology looked at 52,087 individuals between the ages of 20 and 74. After adjusting for factors like age, smoking and blood pressure, researchers found women with high cholesterol (more than 270 mg/dl) had a 28 percent lower mortality risk than women with low cholesterol (under 193 mg/dl). Risk for heart disease, cardiac arrest and stroke also declined as cholesterol levels rose.

The researchers involved in the study admit this contradicts commonly accepted beliefs about cholesterol. They say current guideline information is misleading because the role of cholesterol in heart disease is overestimated.
