I’ve been saying for a long time now that US Department of Agriculture food inspectors are too cozy with food producers and for financial reasons are permitting unclean meat products to enter the nation’s food chain, all the while blaming consumers for not cooking meat long enough.
So now we read of a Salmonella outbreak with Foster Farms chicken, a contamination that had been going on since March 2013 and had hospitalized an unusually high percentage of consumers.

A nutraceutical company in Italy has sponsored a successful study of INOSIDEX, its combination inositol + lipoic acid product, that produced a dramatic reduction in insulin resistance (inability of insulin to enter cells and produce cell energy) and reduced blood serum insulin levels among postmenopausal women with metabolic syndrome (diabesity).
Probably for proprietary reasons the doses of these two nutrients, which are available as dietary supplements in the USA, are not disclosed in the published study. However, a prior study employed 2 grams (2000 milligrams) of inositol in a similar group of females. Generally, lipoic acid is used in doses of 100-600 mg by diabetics.

Today’s health news headline emanating from Great Britain is that childhood asthma rates have soared for the past 50 years, doubling over that time. About 1.1 million British youngsters and an additional 4.2 million adults have asthma – with 1400 asthmatics dying annually.
This means something that began happening in the 1960s continues today with devastating consequences. It has to be environmentally induced, not naturally occurring. This means a long standing epidemic can exist within a modern human population and the medical community appears oblivious, even powerless to understand or stop it.

The one-way trip has been scheduled. The lift-off from Earth is scheduled for a date in 2022 with arrival on the planet Mars seven months later in 2023. Over 200,000 venturesome planet colonists have already applied for the 40 who will be selected and trained as the first interplanetary travelers. The precarious 210-Earth day trip will cost an anticipated $6 billion to prepare for, totally privately funded, which includes landing of pre-habitation supply pods and rovers that will set down a selected colonization site on the surface of Mars beginning in 2016.

Investigators at Tufts University display striking images of the human brain when it is deficient in vitamin B12. Brain scans show fluid-filled spaces at the center of a shrinking B-12 deficient brain – literally holes in the brain.
A prior study showed that high-dose B vitamins (800 mcg folic acid, 20 mg vitamin B6, 500 micrograms of vitamin B12) slows the rate of shrinkage in the human brain, and more demonstrably reduces (by 7 times) shrinkage of grey matter in the brain.
This study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, is more striking because of the photographic images of a shrinking brain accompanied by mental tests which confirms loss of thinking ability as the brain shrinks in size.
Lack of absorption of dietary and supplemental vitamin B12 due to progressive inability to produce stomach acid is cited as a growing concern. Therefore, it may be that widespread H. pylori infection, which is prevalent in more than half of the US population, could be a parallel facto as H. pylori shuts down production of stomach acid.
Another concern is that the most often used anti-diabetic drug, metformin, depletes the body of vitamin B12. Metformin use has been associated with declining mental function. ©2013 Bill Sardi, Knowledge of Health, Inc.

You can read the abstract of their report for yourself, as published in the Molecular Aspects Of Medicine journal, published online August 29, 2013. University of Nebraska Medical Center researchers say estrogen imbalance promotes breast cancer. DNA adducts are formed, which is a piece of DNA bonded to a cancer-causing chemical.
These researchers say “the dietary supplements resveratrol and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) can act as cancer preventing agents by keeping estrogen metabolism balanced.” These are inexpenstive and could prevent “many of the prevalent types of human cancer,” they say.

While many Americans mistakenly believe they will not live as long others in their age group, Americans are more likely to live two to three decades beyond the typical date of retirement (age 65) even without the aid of predicted new advances in medical technology intended to slow the rate of aging.
About 46 percent of pre-retirees think they will not live as long as the average person their age and gender, according to the recently published Society of Actuaries’ Retirement Risk Survey that compared respondents’ estimates of personal life expectancy to those of the population as a whole.
But strikingly, according to the above report, approximately half the population will live longer than their average life expectancy.

How about these numbers?
In fact, the nation’s financial numbers are a fabrication.
