Nine foods you should never eat again

Nine foods you should never eat again
(NaturalNews) With so much misinformation out there about food and how it affects human health, making healthy food choices for you and your family can be difficult and confusing. There are a number of specific foods; however, that you will want to avoid in almost every circumstance because they provide virtually no health benefits while posing plenty of health risks. Here are nine foods you should never eat again if you care about preserving your long-term health: 1) White bread, refined flours. By definition, white bread and refined flours in general are toxic for your body because they have been stripped of virtually all vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other important nutrients. Because of this, the body does not know how to properly digest and assimilate these so-called foods, which can lead to health problems. 2) Conventional frozen meals. 3) White rice. 4) Microwaveable popcorn. 5) Cured meat products with nitrates, nitrites. 6) Most conventional protein, energy bars.

Treating Infections with Homeopathy » Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center By Janet Levatin, MD Everyone gets run down from time to time, allowing a nasty virus to set up shop. The majority are self-limited illness that do not require antibiotics, usually resolving on their own without lasting consequences. I would like to share a few recent experiences that demonstrate the effectiveness of homeopathy to treat patients with a variety of infections: A 45-year old mother of three came to our Clinic with a significant sinus infection. A second patient of mine was a 50-year old women with a history of recurrent bladder infections (UTIs). And finally, a mother brought in her 5-year old child who had a cough, cold and ear pain. These are just few examples of the many children and adults I have treated homeopathically during my career. We hold places in the schedule every day to take care of acutely ill adults and children.

Why 80 Percent of People Worldwide Will Soon Stop Eating Wheat March 20, 2012 Why 80 Percent of People Worldwide Will Soon Stop Eating Wheat The future of wheat is certain, and it's toxic. There are as many health risks associated with the consumption of wheat as there are nutritional benefits claimed by the wheat industry. Why is there such a strong emphasis on the development of wheat products all over the world when there are so many adverse and crippling effects such as neurological impairment, dementia, heart disease, cataracts, diabetes, arthritis and visceral fat accumulation, not to mention the full range of intolerances and bloating now experienced by millions of people? Approximately 700 million tons of wheat are now cultivated worldwide making it the second most-produced grain after maize. At some point in our history, this ancient grain was nutritious in some respects, however modern wheat really isn't wheat at all. Dr. If introduced, GE wheat will enter farmers’ rotations along with the already HT canola and soybeans. Health Effects 1.

Avocado Health Benefits: The World’s Most Perfect Food? Did you know that the avocado has been called the world’s most perfect food and has many health benefits? It has achieved this distinction because many nutritionists claim it not only contains everything a person needs to survive — but it has also been found to contribute to the prevention and control of Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions. The avocado (Persea gratissima or P. americana) originated in Puebla, Mexico and its earliest use dates back to 10,000 years B.C. Since AD 900, the avocado tree has been cultivated and grown in Central and South America. In the 19th century, the avocado made its entry into California, and has since become a very successful commercial crop. Ninety-five percent (95%) of U.S. avocados are gown in Southern California. Foods naturally rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as avocados, are widely acknowledged as the secret to a healthy heart, a brilliant brain and eagle eyes. Dr. Sources :

The Importance of Fever | Dr. Tenpenny Childhood fevers can be frightening, mostly because they are misunderstood. A fever is an increase in body temperature above the “normal range.” But the definition of “normal” can vary from person to person. There are several causes of fever, but it is most commonly associated with dozens of different viruses, bacteria and parasites that cause upper respiratory infections, pneumonia, diarrhea, and urinary tract infections. When infectious micro-organisms invade the body, it is fever that gets our attention. However, contrary to the reflex need to give an aspirin to make a fever stop, an elevated temperature can be an expression of the immune system working at its best. Fever phobia Fever is certainly one of the most common reasons that parents seek medical attention for their children. In 2001, a follow-up study was conducted to see if the trends in “fever phobia” had changed. “Fever Phobia Revisited: Have Parental Misconceptions About Fever Changed in 20 Years?” When is fever harmful? 1.

Centros culturais contemporâneos, mundos possíveis » Observatório da Diversidade Cultural Museu de Favela (MUF) – Rio de Janeiro Laisa Bragança* Ao aliar arte, conhecimento e lazer em um mesmo espaço, os centros culturais contemporâneos preservam características de modelos milenares de bibliotecas e de museus. Polivalentes e multifuncionais, pretendem configurar-se como uma versão ampliada e renovada de complexos culturais como o da famosa Biblioteca de Alexandria, uma das maiores da Antiguidade. Os modelos institucionais renascentistas de museus e bibliotecas florescidos no Século das Luzes são, por sua vez, fortemente rejeitados pelos espaços culturais que proliferam nas diferentes localidades do planeta. Fenômenos como a globalização, a explosão informacional, a transição da economia dos materiais para a economia da cultura, as novas formas de pensar, fazer, distribuir e consumir a produção artístico-cultural foram igualmente decisivos para o movimento de renovação e ampliação dos espaços culturais tradicionais. Muitas são as possibilidades, mas também os desafios.

7 Foods You Should Never Eat Sometimes, even foods that seem healthy can harbor hidden problems that can affect our health and our planet. Here are seven foods you should never eat—and easy swaps to help eliminate them from your kitchen. Conventional Apples Right at the top of the “dirty dozen” list, conventional apples are sprayed with the most pesticides of almost any fruit because their growing method means they don’t develop natural pest resistance. Make the switch: Buy organic apples! Conventionally Grown Potatoes Think about it: A potato is a root vegetable, and plants absorb nutrients—and other junk—from the soil through their roots. Make the swap: Buy organic potatoes—even frozen ones. Corn-Fed Beef The biggest problems with corn-fed beef start with the corn, because cows evolved to eat grasses, not grains. Make the swap: Buy grass-fed beef instead of corn-fed and enjoy higher levels of good nutrients like omega-3s and vitamin E, and lower levels of bad stuff like inflammatory omega-6s and saturated fat.

Défense : la France prépare les guerres de demain avec des ambitions réduites LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Nathalie Guibert Il n'était pas question d'afficher une baisse des ambitions de la France dans le monde. Mais, crise oblige, il fallait être "sincère" sur ses moyens. Entre ces deux écueils, l'élaboration de la nouvelle feuille de route de la stratégie française a relevé de la quadrature du cercle. Le nouveau Livre blanc était attendu pour la fin 2012, à l'issue d'un travail de commission (46 experts et représentants de l'Etat) et d'un débat national. Face à la crise, on a d'abord tenté, comme le disent les experts, de "faire entrer l'édredon dans la valise". Dans le nouveau modèle, les mots-clés deviennent différenciation – ce qui revient à installer des armées à plusieurs vitesses – et mutualisation. Les menaces Le document indique qu'une attaque informatique d'ampleur sera considérée par la France comme un acte de guerre. Les zones d'intérêt français Protection, dissuasion, intervention sont les piliers de la stratégie nationale. L'effort de défense

Why You Should Avoid Tamiflu » Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center By Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM January 12, 2013: Over the last few weeks, news outlets have been trumpeting reports on the latest influenza epidemic. How Tamiflu Works: The surface of influenza viruses have two proteins. After new viruses are formed, they must be released to invade adjacent cells. Tamiflu Gets Approval In January, 2000, Tamiflu (oseltamivir) became the first oral neuraminidase inhibitor to obtain FDA approval. The effectiveness of Tamiflu was assessed by self-administered “symptom scores”, used to document the reduction of influenza-associated symptoms after taking the drug. Amazingly enough, the drug had been tested on only 849 people who had culture-confirmed influenza. “The clinical relevance of the modest treatment benefit is a highly subjective question. There have been a few studies suggesting that Tamiflu could be used to prevent the flu. Tamiflu-resistant Viruses Tamiflu Side Effects Everyone, especially parents, should be wary of using this drug.
