Is Your Diabetes Curable or Just Treatable?

Can Your Diabetes be Cured or Just Treated?

Diabetes can be the worst scourge to ever hit mankind. Its complications have magnified in the last 30 years or so and have set more souls up for shortened lives, than any other disorder, as this disorder is the gateway to future drug use and continued treatments, ultimately until death. The death is always premature. The grain industry and the pharmaceutical industry has made certain of this with a passion seldom matched by even our greatest artists, athletes and musicians, they are inflicting their will upon an unsuspecting public.

The desire of these industries to dominate our food supply and our pharmaceutical supply is ginormous. Their motivation has pushed them to force as many farmers as they can to grow their GMO seed, simply to sell more of their Roundup Herbicide. You know how dangerous that is by now. You should know that 1.3 million tons of it have been sprayed on your food or on feed for feedlots that goes directly into your meat. It’s this desire that has made carbs more glycemic today than they’ve ever been in history. This is what’s driving the diabetes pandemic today.              Get the book now!

The whole premise behind these posts is to prove that the only way you can prevent these horrendous diseases, is to stop the glycation that is responsible for them and the only way you can stop the glycation is to stop feeding it. It’s really a simple solution, just not an easy one because of the addiction factor. However, YOU and only YOU have control over this and it all depends on what YOU put in your mouth when you eat.

I’ll admit that that can be hard when you have a whole industry trying to get you to eat more of what it is that glycates. This is because they are connected to another industry that feeds off of the unsuspected that buy into this ruse, all those whom the glycation affects, the public.                                    Get the whole story!

With over 123,250 studies and reports available when I searched for diabetes and carbs on PubMed, it appears that this has been known for some time. There are studies on diabetes and carbohydrates dating from 1946. How could it have taken this long to put these pieces together?

The good news here is that there is a cure for diabetes. Thank you, Dr. Davis, for pointing it out for us. If you’re tired of treating your diabetes and poking yourself all the time, all one has to do to cure it or avoid it in the first place, is to not eat the food that is responsible for creating it and that is the starchy carbohydrates.

From PMC and PubMed,

Evidence of your carb intake and Diabetes

The only way out of this dilemma is to curb the carb usage completely. The following reports detail how carb ingestion leads directly to type2 diabetes, which ultimately leads to every modern disorder or disease;

The first one I looked at was from 1952; This study was so old, they still called glucose dextrose;

This was a difficult study to read and it only showed 8 diabetic patients. It didn’t mention which type they were either. It basically showed that an increase in carbohydrate consumption led to added glycogen and far stored in the body, clearly showing the link between carbs and fat. This study is older than I. Why have I not heard anything about it? Where were the warnings? Where they too afraid of upsetting an industry, so safeguard the public’s health?

This again is evidence that carbs and diabetes were being researched in 1945, as this report is from May 1945.

This is PubMed’s explanation of carbohydrates and how the glycemic index works. It helps to know how diabetics are thinking and how they need to keep track of the glucose levels in their blood.

  • Issues in Nutrition:Carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates include sugars, starches, and dietary fibers. Resistant starches resemble fiber in their behavior in the intestinal tract, and may have positive effects on blood glucose levels and the gut microbiome. Fibers are classified as soluble and insoluble, but most fiber-containing foods contain a mixture of soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber has been shown to lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. Many artificial sweeteners and other sugar substitutes are available. Most natural sources of sweeteners also are energy sources. Many artificial sweeteners contain no kilocalories in the amounts typically used. Sugar alcohols may have a laxative effect when consumed in large amounts. Glycemic index and glycemic load are measurements that help quantify serum glucose response after ingestion of particular foods. These measurements may be affected by the combination of foods consumed in a given meal, and the glycemic index may vary among individuals eating the same meal. Eating foods with a low glycemic index may help prevent development of type 2 diabetes. There is no definitive evidence to recommend low-carbohydrate diets over low-fat diets for long-term weight loss; they are equally effective.

They stop short of saying that if you don’t eat carbs you can avoid diabetes, so let me be the first to tell you, you don’t need to eat carbohydrates. Carbs, the way they’re grown today, makes them as dangerous as arsenic.

This article published online on Dec 10, 2016, disputes the importance large amounts of carbohydrates in the diet;

Carbohydrates are essential nutrients that are used as a primary source of energy. Carbohydrate utilization should be properly controlled, as abnormal regulation of carbohydrate metabolism is associated with diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and stroke. These metabolic syndromes have become a serious problem in developed countries, and there is an increased need for research examining the influence of carbohydrates on animal physiology. Diets enriched in glucose, a major carbohydrate, are also associated with accelerated aging in several model organisms, including yeast and Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans). Genetic factors that mediate the effects of high glucose diets on aging have been identified during the last decade, mostly through the use of C. elegans. In this review, we describe studies that determine the effects of carbohydrate-enriched diets on aging by focusing on the mechanisms through which evolutionarily conserved pathways mediate the lifespan-altering effects of glucose in C. elegans. These include the insulin/insulin-like growth factor-1, sterol-regulatory element-binding protein, and AMP-activated protein kinase signaling pathways. We also discuss the effects of various carbohydrates and carbohydrate-derived metabolites on aging in model organisms and cultured mammalian cells. Finally, we discuss how dietary carbohydrates influence health and aging in humans.

Would you consider this evidence that carbs should be, for the most part, limited to small portions…as small as possible.

  • Effect of type and amount of dietary carbohydrate on biomarkers of glucose homeostasis and C reactive protein in overweight or obese adults: results from the OmniCarb trial.

OBJECTIVE:

The glycemic index (GI) of dietary carbohydrate is thought to affect glucose homeostasis. Recently, the Effect of Amount and Type of Dietary Carbohydrates on Risk for Cardiovascular Heart Disease and Diabetes Study (OmniCarb) trial reported that a low-GI diet did not improve insulin sensitivity. We conducted this ancillary study of the OmniCarb trial to determine the effects of GI and carbohydrate content on glucose homeostasis and inflammation.

RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS:

OmniCarb was a randomized cross-over feeding study conducted in overweight or obese adults without diabetes (N=163). Participants were fed each of 4 diets for 5 weeks with 2-week washout periods. Weight was held constant. Diets were: high GI (GI≥65) with high carbohydrate (58% kcal), low GI (GI≤45) with low carbohydrate (40% kcal), low GI with high carbohydrate, and high GI with low carbohydrate. We measured glycated albumin (GA), fructosamine, and high sensitivity C reactive protein (CRP) at baseline and following each dietary period. These biomarkers were compared within-person between diets.

RESULTS:

The study population was 52% female and 50% black. Mean age was 53 (SD, 11) years; mean body mass index was 32 (SD 6) kg/m2. Reducing GI had no effect on GA or fructosamine, but increased fasting glucose in the setting of a high-carbohydrate diet (+2.2 mg/dL; p=0.02). Reducing carbohydrate content decreased GA in the setting of a high-GI diet (-0.2%; p=0.03) and decreased fructosamine in the setting of a low-GI diet (-4 µmol/L; p=0.003). Reducing carbohydrate while simultaneously increasing GI significantly reduced both GA (-0.2%; p=0.04) and fructosamine (-4 µmol/L; p=0.009). Neither reducing GI nor amount of carbohydrate affected insulin or CRP.

CONCLUSIONS:

Reducing carbohydrate, regardless of high or low GI, decreased GA and fructosamine. This suggests that reducing carbohydrate content, rather than GI, is a better strategy for lowering glycemia in adults at risk for diabetes.

Would you consider this as evidence that carbs should be, for the most part, limited to small portions…as small as possible. Need I say more?

  • [Composition of macronutrients in the diabetic diet].

The diabetic diet is one of the pillars of diabetes treatment. The rapid development of knowledge relating to the treatment of diabetes also includes diet. The paper focuses on the importance of a diet in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and prevention of atherosclerosis. Its main goal is to assess the impact of a composition of macronutrients on individuals with type 2 diabetes. The paper is divided into several parts, each of which ends with a conclusion. The first part examines weight reduction. The diet aimed at a weight loss is effective, it can effectively prevent diabetes, it leads to improvements in glucose control and reduction of the risk factors for atherosclerosis, however it will not impact on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality until after more than 20 years. The second part deals with “healthy” foods. The studies exploring this area are not convincing. The only really rational component of food in relation to atherosclerosis is dietary fibres. Important is a balanced diet combined with regular physical activities. The third part focuses on the composition of macronutrients. It turns out that, considering a low-calorie diet, the effects of high- and low-carbohydrate diets on people with diabetes are similar with regard to weight loss and lowering of HbA1c, however the low-carbohydrate diet is associated with lower glycemic variability and a reduced need for anti-diabetic drugs. We do not know how the comparison of the two extreme diets would come out regarding individuals with a high energy diet. Currently it is useful to focus on the quality of individual macronutrients. Choose foods containing carbohydrates with a low glycemic index and high fibre foods, prefer fats that contain a low proportion of saturated fatty acids. The fourth part discusses the recent recommendation of the Czech Diabetes Society regarding the composition of macronutrients in the diabetic diet. As compared with the diet proposed earlier, lower intake of fibre-rich carbohydrates and higher intake of proteins and fats with a low content of saturated fatty acids is now recommended. Experts’ recommendations on this subject are included. Key words: atherosclerosis – diabetic diet – HbA1c – macronutrients – low-carbohydrate diet – obesity – dietary fibres – high-carbohydrate diet – health food.

  • Adverse effects on insulin secretion of replacing saturated fat with refined carbohydrate but not with monounsaturated fat: A randomized controlled trial in centrally obese subjects.

BACKGROUND:

Current dietary guidelines recommend the replacement of saturated fatty acids (SAFAs) with carbohydrates or monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) based on evidence on lipid profile alone, the chronic effects of the mentioned replacements on insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity are however unclear.

OBJECTIVE:

To assess the chronic effects of the substitution of refined carbohydrate or MUFA for SAFA on insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity in centrally obese subjects.

METHODS:

Using a crossover design, randomized controlled trial in abdominally overweight men and women, we compared the effects of substitution of 7% energy as carbohydrate or MUFA for SAFA for a period of 6 weeks each. Fasting and postprandial blood samples in response to corresponding SAFA, carbohydrate, or MUFA-enriched meal-challenges were collected after 6 weeks on each diet treatment for the assessment of outcomes.

RESULTS:

As expected, postprandial non-esterified fatty acid suppression and elevation of C-peptide, insulin and glucose secretion were the greatest with high-carbohydrate (CARB) meal. Interestingly, CARB meal attenuated postprandial insulin secretion corrected for glucose response; however, the insulin sensitivity and disposition index were not affected. SAFA and MUFA had similar effects on all markers except for fasting glucose-dependent insulin tropic peptide concentrations, which increased after MUFA but not SAFA when compared with CARB.

CONCLUSION:

In conclusion, a 6-week lower-fat/higher-carbohydrate (increased by 7% refined carbohydrate) diet may have greater adverse effect on insulin secretion corrected for glucose compared with isocaloric higher-fat diets. In contrast, exchanging MUFA for SAFA at 7% energy had no appreciable adverse impact on insulin secretion.

Carboholics and Diabetics; This is your warning to steer clear of carbs if you want to control your diabetes. There is no literature that can definitively prove that you must eat carbs to survive.

Are these enough reports to prove how directly influence diabetes? After reading this can you see the logic in controlling your diabetes by controlling your carb intake? Where are the warnings from the FDA and the USDA? Don’t they care about what they’re recommending? Don’t they understand because of their recommendations, they’re sending millions of Moms and Dads, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives to their slow, expensive, painful deaths?

These are free reports that are available to everyone. All you have to do is search for them at the National Library of Medicine in the National Institute of Health. There are literally 100s of thousands of reports on the effects of glycation that remain hidden in the PubMed and PMC databases except to the few who look through them.  The only ones looking through this database are the drug companies looking for more ways to make money. Nobody is looking to warn anyone of the dangers of this food.

My question is why? The answer I get is, “there’s no money in it”. That’s is why I said in my first book, it would be a shame if profits and money weren’t the primary motivating factors in our society, but they are, and we have to live with it. That’s why I choose not to buy into it. It’s the same choice you have.

Is Your Dementia Curable or Just Treatable?

Can Your Dementia or Alzheimer’s, Osteoarthritis, IBS/ IBD, Lupus or Other Disease of Inflammation be Cured or Just Treated?

This poses an interesting question osteoarthritis and dementia have something in common? Yes, they do. They are diseases of inflammation and inflammation is caused by glycation. It’s these glycative cytokines and plaques that are responsible for all the damage that is responsible for all diseases of inflammation. They are also related to IBS, IBD, Lupus, Psoriasis, COPD, and every other disease that is influenced by inflammation, which would include most heart diseases and cancer. I posted those entries on different pages because of the extent of each one. That alone tells me to stay clear of anything that creates glycation.

Unfortunately, like arthritis, much of the damage has already been done and can’t be undone.  However, you can stop the decline immediately and start some recovery. Just realize that the recovery will take twice as long as it took for you to create this quagmire in the first place. That only means that you must stop the glycation as soon as possible. (I suggest immediately, with a 3-day water only fast.) This will give your body more time to repair the damage.

Since the body needs proteins and cholesterol to operate and doesn’t need the sugar, that leaves only one type of food to be responsible for glycation, carbs. I’ve learned through my research that the body can create all the glucose it needs with a process called gluconeogenesis. Gluconeogenesis is a process your body goes through whenever is needs glucose and has none readily available.

I produce this glucose with your own glycogen. That’s what your body turns glucose into when you eat it. That is what makes me question our need to eat glucose. If your body can create what it needs, why eat it? You can live perfectly well without it because your body can make it.

Why then, were we fed the line, for 50 years that we had to make grains (the foundation of glucose in the body) the largest part of our diet? Could it be because these studies started about 60 years ago? They intensified 30 years ago when Monsanto took over GD Searle pharmaceuticals. This was also about the time when the whole grain ruse started, convincing the public to consume massive amounts of this carcinogenic, atherosclerotic, inflammatory food. Do you wonder now, why all the disease exists?

When you cure a disease, you have nothing to treat. Where’s the money flow in our medical industry? It flows through the treatment process. Every hospital proves this, every weight loss clinic proves this, every orthopedic clinic proves this. Actually, every clinic proves this. If a cure was found for all modern disease, what would it do to the health and medical industries? Reduce it to treating emergencies only?  In several other posts, I show you how reducing carb consumption will reduce emergencies as well. (That’s where this really gets good.) It has something to do with its effect on your emotions.

Because of the growing list on the Real Poisoning of America – Glycation, it’s become evident that I need to display a different post for the different types of damage that glycation induces. For all forms of dementia, I’ll reserve this notice for that purpose only. All reports Of CVDs and other heart disorders will be located on the Atherosclerosis page.  Cancers will be in a separate post as well with all other diseases and disorders inflammation is responsible for.

The whole premise behind these posts is to prove that the only way you can prevent these horrendous diseases, is to stop the glycation that is responsible for them and the only way you can stop the glycation is to stop feeding it. It’s really a simple solution, just not an easy one because of the addiction factor. However, YOU and only YOU have control over this and it all depends on what YOU put in your mouth when you eat.

I’ll admit that that can be hard when you have a whole industry trying to get you to eat more of what it is that glycates. This is because they are connected to another industry that feeds off of the unsuspected that buy into this ruse, all those whom the glycation affects, the public.

Probably the first condition to hit you will be IBS of IBD, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It was just submitted in this year;

Prevalence and Impact of Inflammatory Bowel Disease-Irritable Bowel Syndrome on Patient-reported Outcomes in CCFA Partners.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients with persistent symptoms despite no or minimal inflammation are frequently described as having an overlap of IBD and irritable bowel syndrome (IBD-IBS). Limited data are available on how IBS impacts the individual patient with IBD. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the prevalence of IBD-IBS and investigate its impact on patient-reported outcomes.

METHOD:

We performed a cross-sectional analysis within the CCFA Partners Study. Bivariate analyses and logistic regression models were used to investigate associations between IBD-IBS and various demographic, disease factors, and patient-reported outcomes including anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, pain interference, and social satisfaction.

RESULTS:

Of the 6309 participants included, a total of 1279 (20%) reported a coexisting IBS diagnosis. The prevalence of IBD-IBS in this cohort was similar within disease subtypes. A diagnosis of IBD-IBS was associated with higher narcotic use compared with those with no IBS diagnosis for both Crohn’s disease, 17% versus 11% (P < 0.001) and ulcerative colitis/indeterminate colitis, 9% versus 5% (P < 0.001). Quality of life, as measured by Short Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (SIBDQ) was lower in patients with IBD-IBS compared with those without. IBD-IBS diagnosis was associated with anxiety, depression, fatigue, sleep disturbances, pain interference, and decreased social satisfaction.

CONCLUSIONS:

In this sample of patients with IBD, high prevalence of concomitant IBS diagnosis was observed. IBD-IBS diagnosis was associated with increased narcotic use and adverse patient-reported outcome. Appropriate diagnosis, treatment, and counseling may help improve the functional status of IBD-IBS patients and decrease narcotic use.

My appropriate treatment for this disorder isn’t a treatment. Those always lead to more treatments. I propose a cure. All the inflammation involved in these disorders can be controlled by your intake of carbs, meaning, by going keto you can avoid all inflammation. How fat would that go to providing relief?

IBS and IBD aren’t the only inflammatory disorders, there are several others such as Lupus;

BACKGROUND:

Early diagnosis is important for the outcome of lupus nephritis (LN). However, the pathological type of lupus nephritis closely related to the clinical manifestations; therefore, the treatment of lupus nephritis depends on the different pathological types.

OBJECTIVE:

To assess the level of monocyte chemotactic protein (MCP-1), fractalkine (Fkn), and receptor for advanced glycation end product (RAGE) in different pathological types of lupus nephritis and to explore the value of these biomarkers for predicting the prognosis of lupus nephritis.

METHODS:

Patients included in this study were assessed using renal biopsy. Class III and class IV were defined as the proliferative group, class V as non-proliferative group, and class V+III and class V+IV as the mixed group. During the follow-up, 40 of 178 enrolled patients had a poor response to the standard immunosuppressant therapy. The level of markers in the different response groups was tested.

RESULTS:

The levels of urine and serum MCP-1, urine and serum fractalkine, and serum RAGE were higher in the proliferative group, and lower in the non-proliferative group, and this difference was significant. The levels of urine and serum MCP-1 and serum RAGE were lower in the poor response group, and these differences were also significant. The relationship between urine MCP-1 and urine and serum fractalkine with the systemic lupus erythematosus disease activity index was evaluated.

CONCLUSION:

The concentration of cytokines MCP-1, fractalkine, and RAGE may be correlated with different pathology type of lupus nephtitis. Urine and serum MCP-1 and serum RAGE may help in predicting the prognosis prior to standard immunosuppressant therapy.

Do you have Lupus? Were you told not to eat your bagels for breakfast? If you weren’t, then it’s probably because someone needed you back for treatment.

This following report dated

Background/Purpose: HMGB1, which may act as a proinflammatory mediator, has been proposed to contribute to the pathogenesis of multiple chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE); however, the precise mechanism of HMGB1 in the pathogenic process of SLE remains obscure.

Method: The expression of HMGB1 was measured by ELISA and western blot. The ELISA was also applied to detect proinflammatory cytokines levels. Furthermore, nephritic pathology was evaluated by H&E staining of renal tissues. Results: In this study, we found that HMGB1 levels were significantly increased and correlated with SLE disease activity in both clinical patients and murine model. Furthermore, gain- and loss-of-function analysis showed that HMGB1 exacerbated the severity of SLE. Of note, the HMGB1 levels were found to be associated with the levels of proinflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α and IL-6 in SLE patients. Further study demonstrated that increased HMGB1 expression deteriorated the severity of SLE via enhancing macrophage inflammatory response. Moreover, we found that receptor of advanced glycation end products played a critical role in HMGB1-mediated macrophage inflammatory response.

Conclusion: These findings suggested that HMGB1 might be a risk factor for SLE, and manipulation of HMGB1 signaling might provide a therapeutic strategy for SLE.

Listed below from PubMed or PMC or the FDA are reports of studies done on the effects of glycation and its influence in osteoporosis or any disease influenced by inflammation.

Abstract

Only three decades ago adipose tissue was considered inert with little relationship to insulin resistance. Similarly, bone has long been thought purely in its structural context. In the last decade, emerging evidence has revealed important endocrine roles for both bone and adipose tissue. The interaction between these two tissues is remarkable. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells give rise to both osteoblasts and adipocytes. Leptin and adiponectin, two adipokines secreted by fat tissue, control energy homeostasis, but also have complex actions on the skeleton. In turn, the activities of bone cells are not limited to their bone remodeling activities, but also to modulation of adipose sensitivity and insulin secretion. This review will discuss these new insights linking bone remodeling to the control of fat metabolism and the association between diabetes mellitus and osteoporosis.

Conclusion

Chronic hyperglycemia profoundly affects multiple tissues and directly affects the frequency of complications in diabetes mellitus. Hypoinsulinemia is the primary hormonal disturbance leading to T1DM, whereas insulin resistance causing hyperglycemia is the principal event in T2DM. As discussed, bone mineral density is a relatively poor surrogate for defining bone structure during long-standing hyperglycemia. Low bone mass is often detected in T1DM although the pathogenesis is likely to be multifactorial. On the other hand, BMD can be low, normal or increased in T2DM. Yet both forms of diabetes are associated with an increased risk of fracture. In part, higher rates of fracture can be related to neuropathic, nephropathic and retinopathic changes that lead to a greater risk of falling. In addition, low body weight, hypoinsulinemia, low serum levels of IGF-I and altered gonadal steroids favor a catabolic state in the skeleton of Type I diabetics. The presence of obesity and T2DM, although associated with increased cortical bone mass, does not translate to a lower fracture risk, and paradoxically may enhance risk. Hyperglycemia can lead to degenerative changes in bone quality through advanced end product glycation, which particularly affects collagen cross-linking. Not surprisingly, one of the classic late clinical features of diabetes mellitus, i.e. vascular calcification, is associated with lower bone mass and impaired bone strength. Those two processes may be linked to reduced renal function and aberrant deposition of calcium in blood vessels rather than in the appropriate collagen matrix. Notwithstanding the potential numerous insults associated with sustained hyperglycemia, several recent developments suggest there is now a greater awareness of the skeleton as both a target of diabetic complications and a potential pathogenetic factor in the disease itself.

The following study looked at the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients. It’s dated Jan 3, 2017. They officially label Alzheimer’s disease as type 3 diabetes;

Abstract

The brain of patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) showed the evidence of reduced expression of insulin and neuronal insulin receptors, as compared with those of age-matched controls. This event gradually and certainly leads to a breakdown of the entire insulin-signaling pathway, which manifests insulin resistance. This, in turn, affects brain metabolism and cognitive functions, which are the best-documented abnormalities in AD. These observations led Dr. de la Monte and her colleagues to suggest that AD is actually a neuroendocrine disorder that resembles type 2 diabetes mellitus. The truth would be more complex with understanding the role of Aβ derived diffusible ligands, advanced glycation end products, and low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1. However, now it’s known as “brain diabetes” and is called type 3 diabetes mellitus (T3DM). This review provides an overview of “brain diabetes” focusing on the reason why the phenomenon is called T3DM.

Evidence of inflammation’s role in myasthenia gravis, dated Jan 3, 2017; I used to have a granddaughter with myasthenia gravis, as I recall at that time, there was no cause. I guess the cause wasn’t known then. It’s a nice thing that it is now, but who is suggesting that we remove the instigating factor from this equation, the glucose that is responsible for the glycation? I can’t believe that there are only a few of us;

Abstract

This study describes specific patterns of elevated inflammatory proteins in clinical subtypes of myasthenia gravis (MG) patients. MG is a chronic, autoimmune neuromuscular disease with antibodies most commonly targeting the acetylcholine receptors (AChRab), which causes fluctuating skeletal muscle fatigue. MG pathophysiology includes a strong component of inflammation and a large proportion of patients with early onset MG additionally present thymus hyperplasia. Due to the fluctuating nature and heterogeneity of the disease, there is a great need for objective biomarkers as well as novel potential inflammatory targets. We examined the sera of 45 MG patients (40 AChRab seropositive and 5 AChRab seronegative), investigating 92 proteins associated with inflammation. Eleven of the analysed proteins were significantly elevated compared to healthy controls, out of which the three most significant were: matrix metalloproteinase 10 (MMP-10; p = 0.0004), transforming growth factor alpha (TGF-α; p = 0.0017) and extracellular newly identified receptor for advanced glycation end-products binding protein (EN-RAGE) (also known as protein S100-A12; p = 0.0054). Further, levels of MMP-10, C-X-C motif ligand 1 (CXCL1) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) differed between early and late onset MG. These novel targets provide valuable additional insight into the systemic inflammatory response in MG.

The following report was submitted Dec 29, 2016, and explains the damage that oxidative stress, apoptosis, autophagy and inflammation play in kidney disease;

Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) can occur in approximately 30-40% of both type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients. The well-established features of DKD include increased serum glucose levels along with chronic low-grade inflammation, OxS, increased advanced glycation end products, sorbitol accumulation, increased hexosamine, and protein kinase C pathway activation. On the other hand, accumulating evidence suggests that novel pathways including apoptosis and autophagy might also play important roles in the pathogenesis and progression of DKD. In this review, the integrated mechanisms of inflammation, oxidative stress, apoptosis, and autophagy are discussed in the pathogenesis as well as the progression of DM and DKD.

This following report dated Feb 2017 shows the importance of sRAGE involved in lung infections and other inflammatory precursors to lung cancer;

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The membrane-bound isoform of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (FL-RAGE) is primarily expressed by alveolar epithelial cells and undergoes shedding by the protease ADAM10, giving rise to soluble cleaved RAGE (cRAGE). RAGE has been associated with the pathogenesis of several acute and chronic lung disorders. Whether the proteolysis of FL-RAGE is altered by a given inflammatory stimulus is unknown. Pseudomonas aeruginosa causes nosocomial infections in hospitalized patients and is the major pathogen associated with chronic lung diseases.

CONCLUSIONS:

These data are the first to suggest that inhibition of FL-RAGE shedding, by affecting the FL-RAGE/cRAGE levels, is a novel mechanism for controlling inflammation to acute P. aeruginosa pneumonia. sRAGE in the alveolar space sustains inflammation in this setting.

Below is evidence that the destruction of glycation starts before you were ever born, thanks to your mother’s glucose ingestion. This is where your addiction began. Do you think if she knew how much harm she was inflicting, she would do it again? That would depend on her addiction;

Abstract

Ectopic calcifications in intervertebral discs (IVDs) are known characteristics of IVD degeneration that are not commonly reported but may be implicated in structural failure and dysfunctional IVD cell metabolic responses. This study investigated the novel hypothesis that ectopic calcifications in the IVD are associated with advanced glycation end products (AGEs) via hypertrophy and osteogenic differentiation. Histological analyses of human IVDs from several degeneration stages revealed areas of ectopic calcification within the nucleus pulposus and at the cartilage endplate. These ectopic calcifications were associated with cells positive for the AGE methylglyoxal-hydroimidazolone-1 (MG-H1). MG-H1 was also co-localized with Collagen 10 (COL10) and Osteopontin (OPN) suggesting osteogenic differentiation. Bovine nucleus pulposus and cartilaginous endplate cells in cell culture demonstrated that 200 mg/mL AGEs in low-glucose media increased ectopic calcifications after 4 d in culture and significantly increased COL10 and OPN expression. The receptor for AGE (RAGE) was involved in this differentiation process since its inhibition reduced COL10 and OPN expression. We conclude that AGE accumulation is associated with endochondral ossification in IVDs and likely acts via the AGE/RAGE axis to induce hypertrophy and osteogenic differentiation in IVD cells. We postulate that this ectopic calcification may play an important role in accelerated IVD degeneration including the initiation of structural defects. Since orally administered AGE and RAGE inhibitors are available, future investigations on AGE/RAGE and endochondral ossification may be a promising direction for developing a non-invasive treatment against the progression of IVD degeneration.

From the study report itself, dated Nov 2016;

Ectopic calcifications were present in human IVDs of various degeneration stages and often co-localized with MG-H1… endochondral ossification. There is a need for non-invasive therapies to prevent or reverse early degenerative IVD changes. Currently, there is a phase 3 clinical trial using the orally bioavailable RAGE inhibitor Azeliragon (TTP488; trial for Mild Alzheimer’s disease), suggesting additional anti-AGE drugs are available. A clinical study further reported that restriction of oral AGE intake reduced systemic AGE levels and improved insulin resistance in humans with type 2 diabetes (Uribarri et al., 2011), suggesting that effects of AGEs might be reversible. Importantly, we observed indications for endochondral ossifications in human IVDs already in grade II IVDs, a stage at which preventative treatment could still inhibit further degeneration. In conclusion, accumulation of the AGE MG-H1 was associated with endochondral ossifications, hypertrophy and osteogenic differentiation in human IVDs and mechanistic investigations on IVD cells showed a direct relationship involving RAGE, suggesting that AGE/RAGE could be a potential therapeutic target. Further investigations in animal experiments are warranted to assess whether targeting AGEs via the AGE/RAGE axis can potentially provide a non-invasive treatment option for preventing progression of IDD

This report makes me wonder, how long will it take until the FDA or the USDA to wake up and realize that what they’re recommending everyone eat is actually what’s making everyone sick. Then I think about who controls the FDA and the USDA, it somehow nullifies my curiosity, I know who is responsible. A multinational chemical company intent on bolstering their profits at whatever cost may be brought about their actions.

It’s when those actions bolster the profits of another related industry that I get bothered. When I see people conned into consuming foods that make them sicker every day, I get a little upset. When I see this, I see my mother died because she bought into this ruse herself. This makes this ruse the most dangerous con game ever to hit mankind.

The following report submitted Mar 2, 2009, details the beginning of glycation from the fundamental elements of glucose, glyoxal and methylglyoxal, and their roles in aging and disease;

  • Protein and nucleotide damage by glyoxal and methylglyoxal in physiological systems – role in aging and disease

Glyoxal and methylglyoxal are potent glycating agents. Glycation of proteins is a complex series of parallel and sequential reactions collectively called the Maillard reaction. It occurs in all tissues and body fluids. Early stage reactions in glycation of protein by glucose lead to the formation of fructosyl-lysine (FL) and N-terminal amino acid residue-derived fructosamines. Later stage reactions form stable end-stage adducts called advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs). FL degrades slowly to form AGEs – and also glyoxal and methylglyoxal. In contrast, glyoxal and methylglyoxal react with proteins to form AGE residues directly and relatively rapidly. 

Glycation by glyoxal and methylglyoxal, and the related influence of Glo1 are now emerging as playing a critical role in aging and disease processes – vascular complications associated with diabetes renal failure, Alzheimer’s disease, and tumorigenesis and multidrug resistance in cancer chemotherapy. They may also have roles in pathologic anxiety, autism, obesity and other disorders. 

Again, this is just one of 804 return reports from a search of Lymphoma and glycation. To think that one has nothing to do with the other is what the FDA and the USDA seem to be doing in the continued recommendations to eat the food that does the glycating. If you were to tell me that the influence of Monsanto’s execs in the offices and agencies had nothing to do with these decisions to alert the public about the dangers in what they’re eating, I’d have to tell you that you are completely misinformed. Can I sell you some ocean front property in Kansas?

Does this mean that you’re stupid? Absolutely not. It just means that you’ve been duped like everyone else. It’s really easy to do. All you have to do is taste the food. One taste and you’re hooked. Since it doesn’t kill you immediately, it’s assumed safe. This assumption is what’s killing America and the rest of the world. This is the most deadly assumption to make, bread is safe to eat. Bread nowadays is deadly.

The next report I looked at was from Nov 10, 2016, and it displays the extent this industry will go to, to simply allow this addiction to killing as many people as it possibly can, by it to continue. Its purpose is to show the benefits of Bazedoxifene, a new drug being tested for reducing apoptosis and oxidative stress when all they have to do is to recommend the cessation of the consumption of grains and sugar that leads to the glycation that is responsible for all these diseases. They’re not interested in arresting it or abating it. Their sole interest is to expand its influence, to addict more and more people. This appears to be done solely to increase the profits of the pharmaceutical industry. It explains the benefits of a new drug that the industry wants to impose upon the people, probably in the guise of helping the people;

  • Bazedoxifene Ameliorates Homocysteine-Induced Apoptosis and Accumulation of Advanced Glycation End Products by Reducing Oxidative Stress in MC3T3-E1 Cells.

Abstract

Elevated plasma homocysteine (Hcy) level increases the risk of osteoporotic fracture by deteriorating bone quality. However, little is known about the effects of Hcy on osteoblast and collagen cross-links. This study aimed to investigate whether Hcy induces apoptosis of osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells as well as affects enzymatic and nonenzymatic collagen cross-links and to determine the effects of bazedoxifene, a selective estrogen receptor modulator, on the Hcy-induced apoptosis and deterioration of collagen cross-links in the cells. Hcy treatments (300 μM, 3 mM, and 10 mM) increased intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in a dose-dependent manner. Propidium iodide staining showed that 3 and 10 mM Hcy induced apoptosis of MC3T3-E1 cells. Moreover, the activities of caspases-8, 9, and 3 were increased by 3 mM Hcy. The detrimental effects of 3 mM Hcy on apoptosis and ROS production were partly reversed by bazedoxifene and 17β estradiol. In addition, real-time PCR, immunostaining and Western blot showed that 300 μM Hcy decreased the expression of lysyl oxidase (Lox). Furthermore, 300 μM Hcy increased extracellular accumulation of pentosidine, an advanced glycation end product. Treatment with bazedoxifene ameliorated Hcy-induced suppression of Lox expression and increase in pentosidine accumulation. These findings suggest that high-dose Hcy induces apoptosis of osteoblasts by increasing oxidative stress, and low-dose Hcy decreases enzymatic collagen cross-links and increases pentosidine accumulation, resulting in the deterioration of bone quality. Bazedoxifene treatment effectively prevents the Hcy-induced detrimental reactions of osteoblasts. Thus, bazedoxifene may be a potential therapeutic drug for preventing Hcy-induced bone fragility.

Even though we’ve had an idea of the damage of glycation and what causes it for over 30 years, This industry is still concentrating on making new drugs. Drugs always have side effects that lead to more drugs, yet this is this industry’s modus operandi. They don’t know how to operate otherwise. It’s the ties to the grains industry that I object to and the power we’ve given to these industries, simply to allow the public to continue to feed their addiction. You might as well tell us to stand in front of a racing bus or semi. You’re basically selling us the same thing, future time in the hospital;

This displays the true despair of this problem, an industry more intent on driving profits than healing the people they affect. Their only interest is in making more drugs to allow the continuation of an addiction that’s putting more people in the hospital than any other one thing. To me, that is the definition of criminal behavior. This is a clear indication of legal extortion….and we allow it to continue, to feed our addiction.

This next report dated Oct 18, 2016, shows the influence of Metformin on the AGE population in our blood. It turns out to be another way to get you to take more drugs, as this drug encourages increased levels of CML (another AGE).

Abstract

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is considered one of the most important public health problems. Several and controversial studies showed that the role of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and their receptor in the development of metabolic syndrome and therapeutic pathways is still unsolved. We have investigated whether plasma pentosidine, carboxymethyl-lysine (CML), and soluble receptor for advanced glycation end products (sRAGE) levels were increased in patients with MetS and the effect of metformin in plasma levels of pentosidine, CML, and sRAGE. 80 control subjects and 86 patients were included in this study. Pentosidine, CML, and sRAGE were measured in plasma by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Plasma pentosidine, CML, and sRAGE levels were significantly increased in patients compared to control subjects (P < 0.001, P < 0.001, and P = 0.014, resp.). Plasma levels of pentosidine were significantly decreased in patients who received metformin compared to untreated patients (P = 0.01). However, there was no significant difference between patients treated with metformin and untreated patients in plasma CML levels. Plasma levels of sRAGE were significantly increased in patients who received metformin and ACE inhibitors (P < 0.001 and P = 0.002, resp.). However, in a multiple stepwise regression analysis, pentosidine, sRAGE, and drugs treatments were not independently associated. Patients with metabolic syndrome showed increased levels of AGEs such as pentosidine and CML. Metformin treatment showed a decreased level of pentosidine but not of CML. Therapeutic pathways of AGEs development should be taken into account and further experimental and in vitro studies merit for advanced research.

The purpose of this study was to look at Metformin’s effect on two different AGEs, pentosidine and CML. Again the emphasis is on finding ways to keep the glycating substances in the diet and offering treatment only, not in finding a cure. That would involve removing the glycating substances from the diet and that would hurt the grain industry. Their treatment though, involves the continuation of their prescribed drug regimen. This is why they pay the prettiest reps to sell their drugs to all the doctors who prescribe them.

Dated May 2016 is this report on the role of DAMP in inflammation, cancer and tissue repair;

Abstract

PURPOSE:

This review aimed to take stock of the current status of research on damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP) protein. We discuss the Janus-faced role of DAMP molecules in inflammation, cancer, and tissue repair. The high-mobility group box (HMGB)-1 and adenosine triphosphate proteins are well-known DAMP molecules and have been primarily associated with inflammation. However, as we shall see, recent data have linked these molecules to tissue repair. HMGB1 is associated with cancer-related inflammation. It activates nuclear factor kB, which is involved in cancer regulation via its receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE), Toll-like receptors 2 and 4. Proinflammatory activity and tissue repair may lead to pharmacologic intervention, by blocking DAMP RAGE and Toll like receptor 2 and 4 role in inflammation and by increasing their concentration in tissue repair, respectively.

METHODS:

We conducted a MEDLINE search for articles pertaining to the various issues related to DAMP, and we discuss the most relevant articles especially (ie, not only those published in journals with a higher impact factor).

FINDINGS:

A cluster of remarkable articles on DAMP have appeared in the literature in recent years. Regarding inflammation, several strategies have been proposed to target HMGB1, from antibodies to recombinant box A, which interacts with RAGE, competing with the full molecule. In tissue repair, it was reported that the overexpression of HMGB1 or the administration of exogenous HMGB1 significantly increased the number of vessels and promoted recovery in skin-wound, ischemic injury.

IMPLICATIONS:

Due to the bivalent nature of DAMP, it is often difficult to explain the relative role of DAMP in inflammation versus its role in tissue repair. However, this point is crucial as DAMP-related treatments move into clinical practice.

Another study proving the role of glycation in the pathogenesis of arthritis proves once again how inflammation is the result of glycation, something you have control over:

  • The potential role of advancedglycation end products (AGEs) and soluble receptors for AGEs (sRAGE) in the pathogenesis of adult-onset still’s disease.

BACKGROUND:

Accumulating evidence has demonstrated a pathogenic role of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and receptors for AGEs (RAGE) in inflammation. Soluble RAGE (sRAGE), with the same ligands-binding capacity as full-length RAGE, acts as a “decoy” receptor. However, there has been scanty data regarding AGEs and sRAGE in adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD). This study aimed to investigate AGEs and sRAGE levels in AOSD patients and examine their association with clinical characteristics.

METHODS:

Using ELISA, plasma levels of AGEs and sRAGE were determined in 52 AOSD patients, 36 systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE) patients and 16 healthy controls(HC). Their associations with activity parameters and disease courses were evaluated.

RESULTS:

Significantly higher median levels of AGEs were observed in active AOSD patients (16.75 pg/ml) and active SLE patients (14.80 pg/ml) than those in HC (9.80 pg/ml, both p < 0.001). AGEs levels were positively correlated with activity scores (r = 0.836, p < 0.001), ferritin levels (r = 0.372, p < 0.05) and CRP levels (r = 0.396, p < 0.005) in AOSD patients. Conversely, significantly lower median levels of sRAGE were observed in active AOSD patients (632.2 pg/ml) and active SLE patients (771.6 pg/ml) compared with HC (1051.7 pg/ml, both p < 0.001). Plasma sRAGE levels were negatively correlated with AOSD activity scores (r = -0.320, p < 0.05). In comparison to AOSD patients with monocyclic pattern, significantly higher AGEs levels were observed in those with polycyclic or chronic articular pattern. With treatment, AGEs levels declined while sRAGE levels increased in parallel with the decrease in disease activity.

CONCLUSION:

The elevation of AGEs levels with concomitant decreased sRAGE levels in active AOSD patients, suggests their pathogenic role in AOSD.

Juvenile arthritis is shown in this study to be the product of glycation, again something you have control over by what goes in your body for food. If you or your child suffers from this, your only cure is to stop the glycation. The older you are the less you can reverse. But if you’re young enough, you may be able to reverse a majority of it.

Background

The involvement of high mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) in various inflammatory and autoimmune diseases has been documented but clinical trials on the contribution of this pro-inflammatory alarmin in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are basically absent. To address the presence of HMGB1 and a soluble receptor for advanced glycation end products (sRAGE) in different subtypes of JIA and additionally in children with SLE, we enrolled a consecutive sample of children harvested peripheral blood as well as synovial fluids (SF) at diagnosis and correlated it with ordinary acute-phase reactants and clinical markers.

Methods

Serum and synovial fluids levels of HMGB1 and sRAGE in total of 144 children (97 with JIA, 19 with SLE and 27 healthy controls) were determined by ELISA.

Results

The children with JIA and those with SLE were characterised by significantly higher serum levels of HMGB1 and significantly lower sRAGE levels compared to the healthy controls. A positive correlation between serum HMGB1 and ESR, CRP, α2 globulin was found while serum sRAGE levels were inversely correlated with the same inflammatory markers in children with JIA. Additionally, high level of serum HMGB1 was related to hepatosplenomegaly or serositis in systemic onset JIA.

Conclusion

The inverse relationship of the HMGB1 and its soluble receptor RAGE in the blood and SF indicates that inflammation triggered by alarmins may play a role in pathogenesis of JIA as well as SLE. HMGB1 may serve as an inflammatory marker and a potential target of biological therapy in these patients. Further studies need to show whether the determination of HMGB1 levels in patients with JIA can be a useful guideline for detecting disease activity.

What’s important is that you stop the glycation as soon as possible to arrest to glycation. The secret to this cure is an end to all glycation. The magic of this cure is the end of the hunger cycle.

Are these enough reports to prove how directly influence diabetes? After reading this can you see the logic in controlling your diabetes by controlling your carb intake? Where are the warnings from the FDA and the USDA? Don’t they care about what they’re recommending? Don’t they understand because of their recommendations, they sending millions of Moms and Dads, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives to their slow, expensive, painful deaths?

These are free reports that are available to everyone. All you have to do is search for them at the National Library of Medicine in the National Institute of Health. There are literally 100’s of thousands of reports on the effects of glycation that remain hidden in the PubMed and PMC databases except to the few who look through them.  The only ones looking through this database are the drug companies looking for more ways to make money. Nobody is looking to warn anyone of the dangers of this food.

My question is why? The answer I get is, “there’s no money in it”. That’s is why I said in my first book, it would be a shame if profits and money weren’t the primary motivating factors in our society, but they are, and we have to live with it. That’s why I choose not to buy into it. It’s the same choice you have.

THE WAY FORWARD – FASTING AND KETOSIS

For 2500 years, physicians have used fasting as a means to find the way back to health, by a simple and inexpensive manner in which one could actually heal themselves from virtually any of the modern diseases that have plagued man, since the dawn of civilization. For me, it’s easy to see the correlation of the emergence of modern diseases with the gradual increase of consumption of einkorn wheat, the precursor to our modern strains of wheat. From Emmer (one of the first domesticated strains) and Durum Semolina which is little higher in gluten yet, it’s still considered a weak wheat. (The wheat doesn’t rise as well as it holds the dough together to hold the pasta shape.) Winter Red, spelt and other bread wheats or common wheats that are higher in gluten have been used for bread for thousands of years because it rises better. Today’s forms of highly modified wheat act nothing like the strains from thousands of years ago as today’s  highly domesticated strains of wheat cannot survive in the wild. That’s according to Wikipedia and that’s due to their inability to disperse their seeds. Monsanto has made certain of that through their genetic modifying to create ender seeds that won’t pollinate so a farmer has no seed for next year’s crop forcing them to buy GMO seed from Monsanto. (GMO by itself is not dangerous. It’s what the modifying allows the farmer to do that makes it dangerous and that’s to spray it with Roundup. Their seed is genetically modified to handle applications of the glyphosate herbicide.) This is the wheat that Monsanto is forcing their farmers to grow for your cereal, bread and snacks. The same exists in the cornfields as well, contaminating every corn chip that you eat. (When was the last time you ate Mexican food?)

But we’re talking about wheat right now which was originally cultivated in the Fertile Crescent 10,000 years ago, approximately the same time that modern disease started showing up in the bones of the remains of the people. This is a clear indication of the glycation that wheat was responsible for even then, even as slow as the einkorn wheat is to digest (which slows the progression of glycation). The glycation existed then as it does now, only it took it much longer to manifest. Today, it manifests itself immediately (as soon as it touches your tongue) and this is due to the fast dissolving gluten flour that’s used for bread and pastries as well as pasta and cereal. It just glycates more now as the grain has changed immensely in the last 10,000 years. As these foods increased in prevalence in our diet, the rates of disease increased, as it’s these grains that have always generated disease. They generate it so slowly that it’s never noticed until it’s too late or you stop eating it. This is the value of fasting and why fasting is so important to the health of anyone on this type of carbohydrate diet.

This is why fasting has always cured disease. 98% of all disease is a direct result of our diet. With that being said, it’s easy to see why removing everything damaging from our diet is going to heal the damage caused by keeping those foods in the diet. Fasting produces such good results it’s been the subject of over 20,000 studies on PMC in the NLM at the NIH. (PMC has reports from across the world. Pubmed has 590 reports from studies done in the US alone.) It’s that important, yet what has your doctor shared with you about this life-saving course of intervention? Your doctor comes into your appointed meeting with his/her prescription tablet in hand ready to prescribe pharmaceuticals. (Now it’s a laptop that affords them more latitude in their diagnosis. I sometimes see a primary care physician who still carries a prescription pad with him everywhere he goes, but then he has drug reps going in and out of his office all the time, so to speak.) Their whole intent is to prescribe drugs for your ailments, which are more than likely caused by the ingestion of grain foods. Prescribing drugs is the way they’re trained to treat patients, not with recommendations for diet. (Monsanto wouldn’t allow that to take place as they have far more control over your life than what you could ever believe.)

That’s exactly why fasting is so healthy. It removes the worst of the toxins in our bodies that are built up from the diets of bread, wheat and grain-based products, and doesn’t put more toxins back in with the prescribed drugs. Those grain products also happen to be the most addictive, which is what makes them the hardest to give up. The addictive nature of sugar, at its worst, is displayed in this manner (when it drives pharmaceuticals). When one fasts, they give up the sugars that are doing all the glycating and it’s this glycation that is at the root of all disease and this is why going without food is so healthy.

It also sets your body up for future health by resetting the hormonal structure in your body. This is mostly the result of your hormones transitioning to a starvation mode of survival, where the Ghrelin your stomach releases, sends this growth hormone throughout your body allowing them to do their magic in repairing damage and extending cell life where cell death took place before. (This is directly due to the carbohydrate influence in the diet, creating glycation.) It’s the elimination of glycation that initially brings back a resemblance of health but that’s not what brings future health. It’s the breaking of an addiction. This addiction is built into our society so much, It starts in our prenatal body and continues through the first year of life and then on. (This is due to the prevalence of sugar and high fructose corn syrup in baby foods, formula and infant medicines.) The prenatal starts with mama diet before you’re born, if your mother ate carbs, you got them before you were born. But that only explains why you’re dependent. It doesn’t explain how to break the dependence. That’s with fasting and the keto diet, or ketogenic diet (the diet our ancestors were on ever since our existence). The keto involves fasting as part of the diet, making it much easier to maintain. (There’s no hunger.) Fasting does that by sending your body into ketosis.

According to Wikipedia; in the early 20th century around 1911; Bernarr Macfadden, an American exponent of physical culture, popularized the use of fasting to restore health. His disciple, the osteopathic physician Hugh Conklin, of Battle Creek, Michigan, began to treat his epilepsy patients by recommending fasting.  Conklin conjectured that epileptic seizures were caused when a toxin, secreted from the Peyer’s patches in the intestines, was discharged into the bloodstream. Conklin’s fasting therapy was adopted by neurologists in mainstream practice. In 1916, a Dr. McMurray wrote to the New York Medical Journal claiming to have successfully treated epilepsy patients with a fast, followed by a starch- and sugar-free diet, since 1912. In 1921, prominent endocrinologist H. Rawle Geyelin reported his experiences to the American Medical Association convention. He had seen Conklin’s success first-hand and had attempted to reproduce the results in 36 of his own patients. He achieved similar results despite only having studied the patients for a short time. He reported that three water-soluble compounds, β-hydroxybutyrateacetoacetate and acetone (known collectively as ketone bodies), were produced by the liver in otherwise healthy people when they were starved or if they consumed a very low-carbohydrate high-fat diet.

With fasting being able to eliminate so many disorders, a path was sought to bring this form of healing to the mainstream by creating a diet to encourage fasting. Thus the ketogenic diet was born in 1921 through the efforts of Russel Wilder. According to Wikipedia, Russel Wilder, at the Mayo Clinic, built on this research and coined the term ketogenic diet to describe a diet that produced a high level of ketone bodies in the blood (ketonemia) through an excess of fat and lack of carbohydrate.

Fasting is the quickest manner in which to allow your body to go into ketosis, yet it may not be the easiest. Although on second thought, being the quickest way may make it the easiest. I went through two weeks of withdrawal because I couldn’t give up all foods I loved to eat all at once, to allow my body to go into ketosis in a few days. I could have avoided 10 days of want by fasting and only want something to eat for a few days, as what happens when you fast for a minimum of 3 days. A longer fast is more beneficial but the three days allows your body to respond by going into ketosis which is a fat burning mode. It’s this fat burning mode that forces your body to make its own glucose, which is a much cleaner glucose than you get from the sugar you eat, as it’s a clean glucose made from your own glycogen or fat storage. Getting into ketosis quicker could allow you to start your fat burning diet, but continuing some carbs will only make the withdrawal more difficult as it may drop your body back out of ketosis. This was my problem and why my transition took so long. (Thankfully, they’ll be no next time.)

Ketosis refers to acids in the body that are derived and used while in a state of low glucose in the blood. Because my body has been in a state of ketosis for the last 3 years, I feel qualified to speak about this lifestyle. I call it a lifestyle because it really is. It’s a lifestyle completely different from the lifestyle of a carboholic. Carboholics require food every other hour or so, it’s the law of glucose consumption, appetite follows glucose levels in the blood. It’s that simple, blood sugar levels rise and satiety sets in, releasing hormones controlling feel-good emotions influencing behavior, sometimes unrecognizable behavior. But, that usually happens when the blood sugars fall again after a couple hours releasing hormones of hunger, need and want. These hormones are completely different than the satiety hormones and have a much different effect on the body.

This is where carboholics do not have the advantage that ketonemiacs have. Ketonemiacs (those who have allowed their bodies to go into a state of ketosis) aren’t controlled by their hormones, so they don’t have to follow any hunger cycle. They’re in full control of their hormones. This also means that they’re in more control of their emotions because of that. I know that it doesn’t sound like it’s that big of a deal, but it’s more important than you ever could imagine.

First, let’s look at the state of ketosis, as explained in Wikipedia;

Ketosis is a metabolic state in which most of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides most of the energy. Ketosis is similar to a condition called ketoacidosis, in that both cause a side effect known to laypeople as acetone breath.”

“Longer-term ketosis may result from fasting or staying on a low-carbohydrate diet, and deliberately induced ketosis serves as a medical intervention for various conditions, such as intractable epilepsy, and the various types of diabetes. In glycolysis, higher levels of insulin promote storage of body fat and block the release of fat from adipose tissues, while in ketosis, fat reserves are readily released and consumed. For this reason, ketosis is sometimes referred to as the body’s “fat burning” mode.”

Even bodybuilders have recognized ketonemia as being the most beneficial state to keep their body in as it’s in this state where they produce more growth hormones because of the amount of Ghrelin their stomachs release to enable them to grow their muscles bigger without the carbs.

It used to be one of the biggest problems, being in a state of ketosis is often confused with ketoacidosis, which has nothing to do with being in a state of nutritional ketosis. Ketoacidosis is a state of extreme ketosis that can only happen to type 1 diabetics because their pancreas is incapable of secreting enough insulin to handle even a large amount of glucose in the system. Because of this the liver of type 1 diabetics secretes more ketones than what the body needs to operate.  Again Wikipedia says on the subject of ketosis;

“Ketosis is deliberately induced by use of a ketogenic diet as a medical intervention in cases of intractable epilepsy. Other uses of low-carbohydrate diets remain controversial.[15][16] Induced ketosis or low-carbohydrate diet terms have very wide interpretation. Therefore, Stephen S. Phinney and Jeff S. Volek coined the term “nutritional ketosis” to avoid the confusion.[17]Although I appreciate ketosis as being a “fat burning mode”, it’s the other benefits that I appreciate more. Benefits like less pain, no headaches, no stomachaches, far more energy than what I’ve ever had, ability to get more work done, as I don’t have to stop all the time to eat and although I do eat at my desk, I’m usually at my desk 16-18 hours out of the day, except on therapy days. I take 3 hours, 3 days a week for therapy. My therapy is exercise. My brain needs it, but my body benefits.”

Ketoacidosis is a metabolic state associated with high concentrations of ketone bodies, formed by the breakdown of fatty acids and the deamination of amino acids. Ketoacidosis is most common in untreated type 1 diabetes mellitus, when the liver breaks down fat and proteins in response to a perceived need for respiratory substrate. Prolonged alcoholism may lead to alcoholic ketoacidosis. “

“In diabetic ketoacidosis, a high concentration of ketone bodies is usually accompanied by insulin deficiency, hyperglycemia, and dehydration. Particularly in type 1 diabetics the lack of insulin in the bloodstream prevents glucose absorption, thereby inhibiting the production of oxaloacetate (a crucial precursor to the β-oxidation of fatty acids) through reduced levels of pyruvate (a byproduct of glycolysis), and can cause unchecked ketone body production (through fatty acid metabolism) potentially leading to dangerous glucose and ketone levels in the blood. Hyperglycemia results in glucose overloading the kidneys and spilling into the urine (transport maximum for glucose is exceeded). Dehydration results following the osmotic movement of water into urine. (Osmotic diuresis), exacerbates the acidosis.”

“I bring this up to make the point that nutritional ketosis is not ketoacidosis. It’s far from it. According to Wikipedia again, “Normal serum reference ranges for ketone bodies are 0.5–3.0 mg/dL, equivalent to 0.05–0.29 mmol/L.[23]” In ketosis, the levels range from 3 – 6 mg/dL. Ketoacidosis requires a level of 15 – 25 mg/dL, more the three times needed for ketosis, making it virtually impossible for anyone to into ketoacidosis if you’re not a type 1 diabetic. Type 1 diabetics are required to make sure their bodies don’t produce many ketones because of the risk of ketoacidosis”.

According to PMC’s report on Calorie Restriction (CR) or fasting, submitted; July 2010; Nevertheless, ongoing research continues to draw a more complete picture of CR at the molecular level, which may ultimately allow for the development of therapeutics that might be able to confer at least some of the health benefits of this dietary regimen.

Remaining in a state of ketosis, on the other hand, has allowed my body to regain that which was lost 31 years ago in a car accident that left me severely disabled because of a severe closed head injury, (It was the two strokes that were the most devastating.)

It’s become evident to me since I’ve been carb free and in a state of ketonemia or ketosis, how much our society is addicted to this drug (sugar/glucose/fructose) that does little more than to lead those who eat it to further drug use. Our food industrial complex sees to that by their advertising. I’m convinced it’s because they’re associated with the pharmaceutical industry. They used to be merged into one corporation that controlled the seed supply for the farmers as well as the pharmaceuticals that treated to pain and discomfort brought on by the products grown by the crop seed sold to the farmer to supply the grains for the snack foods everyone everywhere loves to eat.

The unfortunate result of this love affair with those snack and comfort foods is what this diet brings, as its cost of this pleasure. The price to be paid is in the discomfort that this food brings to all those who eat it, regardless of how much they eat. The food industry (Monsanto in particular) has a fortune invested in keeping you eating this deadly food. They’ve built an industry just to treat diabetes, with all the glucose meters and pumps out there, just so addicts can get their next fix. The trouble this industry goes to just to keep their addicts happy. I know now. I didn’t 4 years ago when I was an addict.

The less an addict consumes at each, sitting dictates how much damage it’s going to do, but it’s going to do damage. There is no way to avoid it. That’s the way our digestion and metabolism works. That’s why this addiction is by far, the worst addiction our society has to deal with. This addiction leads to every other addiction that we’re actively fighting, including alcoholism, heroin and tobacco and even gambling. Yes, even gambling, as gambling is driven by the hunger cycle which is one of the biggest underlying influences of a carbohydrate diet. Hunger in this diet drives absolutely everything, even breathing, and because of that, eventually drugs.

This is a cycle that I don’t need. As a matter of fact, it’s the last thing I need. The biggest reason I refuse to take any of these drugs anymore is that all of them carry side effects, some major, some minor. Whether the side effects are major or minor, I don’t want to experience any of them, anymore. I’ve had my fill of side effects, especially the ones that make my health worse, which is where most of these side effects should be classified. After living for twenty years needing to take massive amounts of opioids for my chronic severe pain, diuretics for my high blood pressure, anti-depressants for the pain, and living with the side effects of not only the opioids, but every other drug they had me on, all twelve of them, I got fed up with it. I wasn’t going to take it anymore as I just couldn’t afford it. And I was only up to twelve medications. I have a friend who’s on this diet, who’s lowered his needs to thirteen daily medications from twenty-three. How many meds do you take every day? How many would you like to do without, if your health would allow? This is where fasting needs to replace doping. A change in diet will go much further than any drug and the cure lasts longer than any treatment.

I live by the theory that if the meds aren’t needed in the first place, my health is going to be that much better. That is why I removed everything from my diet that I could, that is responsible for these horrendous diseases, requiring the need for these medications. By fasting, one can reach this healing state much quicker than I did, just by cutting my bread. Where it took me two weeks to get into full ketosis, by fasting I could have jump-started the state by starving my body, then gone on from there with my ketogenic diet to keep my body in this healing state. This is the advantage of fasting, it not only starts the healing from the beginning by putting your body in a starvation mode, it allows you to stay in that mode for the rest of your life. That one little option in itself is what’s going to extend your life beyond 100 years. I can see where ultimately man will be able to extend its lifespan to over 150 years old. !00 years from now, when all mankind is on a ketogenic or paleo diet again, I can see the oldest people in the world living into their 180’s, doubling today’s average lifespan.

This can be easily obtained simply by allowing our bodies to heal themselves and not keep depending on drugs for the perception of healing, which ultimately brings nothing but more drug use, which ultimately is what ruins the liver and kidneys leading to all the cancers and disorders of the hepatic and renal systems. It’s this drug dependence that driven by another dependence that we’ve all been born into. I hope that you’re beginning to see how our drug addictions are driven by one thread that drives all modern diseases along with it.  That one thread is what ties 100% of all cancers, 98% of all heart diseases, and 99.9 % of all dementia, all arthritis, all headaches, and almost all stomachaches together is one substance that can be removed from the diet without any severe side effects. I shouldn’t need to tell you what that substance is by now. You should know. You eat it every day. You live with the effects of addiction. Pain always comes with addiction. (That’s what makes breaking the addiction rewarding, limiting the pain cycle. Oh what sweet bliss!)

The idea then is to limit to minuscule amounts, the foods that make up these addictive substances. You should know by now what these foods are, you eat them every morning, either in your coffee as creamer, in the toast you have, or the cereal you consume. You have it every lunch with your sandwich or burrito and with every dinner with your rolls. I have known several families that would just put a plate of bread on the table every evening. This is the display of addiction, a full out need to satisfy the taste buds by dumping more and more sugar in the body, usually in the form of starchy carbs. I’ve also noticed that in those houses that served bread there was always beer cans in the garbage indicating another addiction. If you remove one addiction from our society, you remove all addictions, as this addiction to sugar and carbs is the foundation of all other addictions as they are all based on a hunger cycle which is the result of an addiction to sugar. Does that make it the root of all evil?

I hope that you can see now that it’s this addiction to sugar and carbs that are driving the pharmaceutical industry, and that both industries are driven by the same people who have a major influence in the offices of the agencies that are supposed to regulate this industry, the FDA and the USDA. With that kind of influence, there’s only one way to fight it and that’s to not buy into it. To not buy into it does require a diet of grain abstinence, though. That requires breaking the addiction and moving to as, ketogenic of a diet, as possible. The easiest manner to do this is to do a strict three day, water only fast. The longer you can do it the better, but it must be at least 3 days with absolutely no food. (That’s why it’s important to check with your doctor first).

All of the consumption of the grain industry’s products is what’s driving the pharmaceutical industry today, tomorrow, next year, and for the next 500 and beyond. If we don’t put an end to this now, our society is doomed to suffer the consequences of a carbohydrate addiction that no one is responsible for. The greed of the grain industry combined with the ambition of the pharmaceutical industry has made us all carboholic slaves to the desires these industries. It’s these industries that are rewarding from the most, from this arrangement. For me, it’s scary, how much power we’ve given these industries, simply because we listen to their advertising. We’ve also let them take over the regulating agency that’s supposed to control this industry. Because our health depends on it, we can’t allow Monsanto to dictate how there are going to poison our food, so they can bolster the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.

Not knowing what you put in your body can cost you your life. It is costing you your life if you eat carbs. Those who listen to the advertising and are influenced by it, fall prey to that influence and become their slaves for life or until they quit consuming the grains. There’s very little different than that of alcoholism except that it’s pretty much forced upon us, in our baby food. Feed your babies on your own milk, if you want them to be healthy.

I know what you’re thinking right now, what are all the foods involved in this addiction? The list is enormous and that’s why this is such a dangerous addiction. This industry has virtually forced us to celebrate this addiction. It involves every one of our holidays, with the holiday season being the worst. Every celebration involves some form of sugar. From the Sugar Bowl to the Tostido’s Fiesta Bowl, our celebration is never-ending. Just after the “holiday season” comes Valentine’s Day barely a month later. Then, comes Easter and spring break. Are you beginning to understand why this addiction is our worst? With all the celebrating we need to keep this addiction, how do you change tradition without changing the world? The quickest way that I know is to organize an international health weekend, for 3 days, where everyone goes keto to heal their diseases and give their bodies a chance to go into ketosis, the ever healing state of metabolism.

The nicest advantage of this diet is the amount of control it gives you over your own emotions. You may think that you control your emotions right now, but I can tell you with full confidence, if you’re on a carb diet, you have no control over your emotions. They’re completely controlled by what you eat because what you eat controls your hunger cycle and it’s your hunger cycle that drives every other cycle your body goes through. Since your hunger cycle is controlled by your hormones (mostly leptin and ghrelin), it’s these hormones that are controlling your emotions. You know this every time you crave that bagel or biscotti. Once you bite into it, your saliva starts digesting that instantly gratifying food to give you that aww feeling, that instantly hits your brain, even before you can swallow it. This is your first sign of addiction and dependence that only gives you the perception that you have control of your own emotions. It’s this cycle that is in full control of your emotions. As much as you try to control them, too often they have a tendency to slip out of your control and back into theirs.

Anyone who can’t control their emotions entirely by themselves is a slave to their own hormones. This makes every carboholic a slave to their emotions and therefore a slave to these industries. This displays the dependence of the hunger cycle and the carb diet that drives that hunger cycle. You may not classify these as emotions, but I submit that they actually are. Satiety is defined as the state of being satisfied. If that is not an emotion, as it expresses feelings of calmness and security, I don’t know what is. Hunger, on the other hand, is defined as a strong desire. Is not that an emotion? These emotions are controlled by both leptin and ghrelin, which ultimately are controlled by the grain industry, more than anything else. This is the ruse I refuse to take part in. I can’t afford this trap anymore. The only way out for our society is to break the hold of this industry, to let them know that we’re not going to stand for this kind of abuse. To go ketogenic in your diet is the best way you can get yourself to everlasting health.

With emotions being controlled by our hormonal balance like this, it’s easy to see how carbs could influence that balance. For this to not have an effect on our behavior is beyond comprehension. It has to. When you combine the drive of an addiction (which is what we’re talking about) with the advertisements promoting that addiction, how can it not have an effect on our health and ultimately our society? That is why I make the statement that this cycle has to change. If it doesn’t cease, our health as a society will never get better. There’s never been a better time for a cure, and that cure is a ketogenic diet, not only for each and everybody to be as healthy as possible, but also to regain the health of our whole society. Can you imagine a world where everyone not only controls their own emotions but they’re in control of their emotions? (That includes reactions.)

Let’s go back to addiction, though, for you may still not consider this an addiction. I understand that few caught in an addiction can recognize that addiction when they’re feeding it because the addiction has ways of hiding itself. You can ask anyone who has to have at least one beer a day. They’re not addicted to their beer, as far as they’re concerned, yet they have to have it. And often they don’t even drink more than just one. But they still have to have that one. That is what makes it an addiction. The body can and does live much better without beer, so it’s not a substance the body requires to survive. Yet the beer drinker needs that daily beer to satisfy their addiction. To go without, many times causes more problems because of the work your hormones are doing on your emotions and worse yet your actions by controlling how receptors work in your brain. That makes it a natural thing that you need to do, and not an addiction, to appease that desire to drink the beer. This is how addiction works and it happens to carboholics too. I know I am a carboholic. The desire for sweets is still with me. It’s a last refuge of my addiction. It’s something that I get to fight for the rest of my life.

The fact of the matter is, if you were fed baby food, you’ve been fed carbs, on the premise that this food is healthy to eat. Actually, you’ve been sold that this is the only healthy food to eat. Fault has been found in every other type of nutrition except grains until recent history. For more than 60 years, we’ve been told to eat grains. Thirty years ago, they said whole grains are healthy. They still say, ”whole grains are healthy”, yet according to all the studies I’ve seen out of the hundreds I‘ve looked at, nothing about this food is safe to ingest, leaving me to wonder why do they still recommend it. Then I look at who controls the FDA, the USDA and what interest they have in their industrial farming, and it becomes pretty clear whose influence this is, controlling what we eat.

This simple little act of feeding your baby formula laced with sugars to get you to eat it has addicted you to a lifetime of dependence. It addicted me. Even though I broke the addiction, I’m still affected by what control it did have over me. That’s exactly why I’m pleading with you, don’t let it control you. I can virtually guarantee that you won’t like the end results. Whether they come late or soon, they always come.

When I think about this, my first response is to get angry, for I never asked for this nor could I ever wish for it, or wish it upon anyone else. Yet, there is an industry that is committed to not only continuing this pattern, they’re goal is to increase its scope. You can see this in all the advertising. This is your grain industry pushing this celebration of this addiction and you’re buying into it every time you feed your carb diet, by buying all your snacks, pasta, cereal, soft drinks, and beer, just for starters. I’d go on with the rest but space limits that list in this book. You can find it in both my first and second books, It’s Time for a Cure and Time for the Ultimate Cure. Your best guide is to use the glycemic index as your guide for what foods that are safe to eat or not. It’s the general consensus that you should keep your foods lower than 50 on the glycemic index. My contention is to keep carbs out of your diet completely and let your body make its own glucose. The reason you want to keep your blood glucose low is to avoid the hunger cycle. The hunger cycle is emotionally the worst manifestation of a carb diet. As it controls your emotions, it controls your actions and reactions. This is an undeniable truth. You know it as well as I do. You feel it every time you taste that divine taste when you bite into it, MMM how good it is.

This is where you need to ask yourself, what is it you crave most? If what you crave has any carbohydrate in it, then that’s your first indication that you’re addicted. What kind of carb you crave, quite often tells how bad your addiction is. One wouldn’t think that a hamburger could be a sign of addiction, when actually when you think about the taste you crave, it’s a combination of everything including the bun, which happens to be the addictive ingredient in the hamburger. Everything else in the hamburger is healthy. It’s just the gluten in the bun that’s so addictive. I wouldn’t doubt that they use extra high gluten bread dough for the buns used for these sandwiches, as it’s more addictive, due to the high gluten content. I know they use high gluten bread dough for making pizza dough because it needs to rise, and the more the gluten the better it rises. That makes it taste better, but it also makes it more addictive. That’s why when you’re at one of these restaurants, most everyone there is overweight. They’re there because they crave that high gluten bread dough. You get it in both pizzas and fast food hamburgers. This is how they make you repeat customers.

If you think my assessment is wrong, just try eating your favorite hamburger between two slices of lettuce. The taste is completely different. Most fast food restaurants offer low carb sandwiches but few order them. The only ones that I know of who order them are those who suffer from celiac disease. I believe that all of us suffer somewhat from celiac disease. I think that there are only a very few that can get through life with showing or suffering the effects of a carb diet….especially an excessive carb diet as is the case with most people worldwide today. The reason you crave the taste of the hamburger is that of the high gluten bread dough the buns are made from because it’s that bun that raises your blood glucose as soon as it hits your tongue. Therein lies the addictive nature of glucose, the constant tug on your hunger cycle. It’s caused by the foods you eat if you’re on a carb diet. When you stop to think about it, you know it, as well as I. You just need to do something about it, as I did, three years ago, and then again one year ago when I went complete keto. It took me three years to go completely keto. You can do it in one month if you’ve got the guts to do a thirty day fast. I didn’t and I may have suffered because of it. I guess I was still persuaded to eat the carbs even after I gave up the bread. If I had to do it over again, I’d fast, to go keto. The adjustment is a lot quicker. The adjustment is equivalent to breaking the addiction.

What do you think they’re advertising when they show you those commercials for pizza and their soft drinks, fruit drinks, cereals, breads, pastas, pastries, candy, etc, etc? They selling you that mmmm feeling of dependence and addiction. It’s that feeling you get as soon as your favorite food hits your tongue and makes you go “oh, I needed that”. That’s the same feeling a junkie feels when he gets his latest fix.

They’re using your emotions to control your behavior. That’s because they can. They already control your hormones and it’s your hormones that control your emotions. Is it any wonder that so many are addicted? Our food industry has done their absolute best to sell you their goods, and that means playing to your emotions in order to sell you that great taste that’s going to bring you oh so much discomfort, pain and disease. If you had known that this could and would happen to any one of your kids, you’d do everything in your power to change it. You do have the power to change it, every time you go to the store. Read the label of everything you buy. If it contains wheat, corn, soy or grains at all, don’t buy it. If you do, you’ll be buying into a lifetime of pain and discomfort for your family. Choose something else to feed your family. You’ll be much further ahead in the long run. The money it will save you in pharmaceuticals is nothing short of astounding.

In my estimation, this is criminal behavior. It’s criminal behavior being done on an industrial level. Monsanto has politically engineered their control of the FDA and USDA to ensure their compliance in their dominance of our food supply.

That is why I included my third chapter on our celebration of our addiction. Corporate does this on purpose. They do this because they know that we are addicted by our rate of consumption of their wares. They also know that with their lobbying power, they can get away with virtually anything. It’s kind of the same situation as that of the military-industrial complex. They support congressmen and senators in every state and district, securing their interests, with this influence. Monsanto has even gone to the extent of contracting every farmer that they can, even to the point of suing farmers, just to corner the market. The last corporations that got away with this kind of behavior were busted up by Teddy Roosevelt in the late 19th century. No industry in our history has had more influence on our health, either as an individual or as a society than this grain and sugar industry has with it addictive food. It’s created a multi-trillion dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry. The thing that scares them the most is the ketogenic diet as it’s the only diet that can save you and the world, from their clutches.

We allow these corporations to addict us, even worse than we’ve been any time in the history of man, for which we should be ashamed. I would be but I didn’t set up the Supreme Court to allow Monsanto to patent life in patenting GMO seeds. This may end up being the bane of mankind, as it is a very deadly path for our food industry to be taking. But then it’s only deadly to those who buy into it. That’s why I won’t.

The Best Way to Fight Hunger Fights Terrorism As Well

The Best Way to Fight Hunger

Fights Terrorism As Well

Hunger pervades our society. Everybody experiences hunger every day. Some people experience hunger all day all night long. At least it’s thought so. Actually, those who go without food don’t often experience hunger except for the ones who haven’t broken the cycle of hunger. This is a cycle that controls hunger a few hours at a time at a time. This is also addiction. This is your addiction to glucose. It works by playing with your hormones every your blood glucose levels change. When you eat carbs your glucose levels are altered, it’s this alteration of your blood glucose levels that alter the reaction of your hormones. It’s those changes in your hormones that affect your behavior and makes you act in the manner you do. It’s those changes in hormones that also affect your hunger cycles.

This is a simple one. At least, to me, it’s simple. Actually, this may be the easiest and simplest cure for hunger that exists today. If you think it’s time for a cure for hunger, I’ve got the solution; to best fight hunger, you need to stop the hunger cycle. You need to do this not by feeding the starving people bags of flour and corn to eat, but by giving them education about nutrition and diet to get them off of the flour and corn diet. That is what makes them hungry and dependent on the grains for their diet. They will remain dependent until they either quit eating the grains or die. The death part always comes prematurely, always. This is the addiction part of the cycle.

Since you can live better without carbs (I’m proving that), your body does not need them. That is the definition of addiction, the body requiring something it doesn’t need and manifesting discomfort when it’s not available for the affected to use. This is the same as what an alcoholic goes through when they can’t get a drink. It’s what cigarette smokers feel when they need a smoke. It’s a need that has to be satisfied, but it can only be satisfied in your mind, where your hormones affect your emotions. They affect your emotions in your mind, more than anywhere else. This is your instruction center for the body, for what happens in the body and how you react to whatever stimuli affect the body.

How Glucose Creates Terrorism

Your emotions should remain in your control, not in the control of what you eat. When you allow that to happen, you’re allowing the industry that controls what you eat, to control how you feel and what you do, by controlling your emotions. This is a cycle. It’s a cycle of dependence. It’s a cycle of dependence on the grain industry. Not the beef industry or dairy industry, simply the grain industry and its manufacturers and processors. It’s this industry that’s responsible for all glycation that occurs in your blood. It’s this industry that’s responsible for your hunger cycles and that put’s responsibility on them for your changes in emotions and behavior. It can also give them some responsibility for the terrorism that exists in the world today as it’s controlled by the amount of anger and hate that’s expressed which in turn is controlled by what controls the hate and anger and that’s a glucose diet. A diet that’s responsible for emotional changes by changing your hormones. This diet creates this hunger cycle that all who are living on a glucose diet can expect to live with. It’s the cost of a diet of carbs.

It’s not only a cycle of hunger, it’s a cycle of addiction. Every addict has to feed their addiction. When you feel hungry, what do you hunger for? What is the first thing you want to eat or drink? That tells you where your addiction lies. I know what you’re thinking right now, how can hunger to eat be an addiction? That’s the first question I’m asked, whenever I call this an addiction. This is how addictions work, they force your body to want something that it really doesn’t need. It creates discomfort in the body until that need is met. When that need is met, comfort takes place and damage internally begins. While your emotions are being controlled by your glucose infusion and making you feel comfortable, the glucose from the sugar and carbs is busy, very busy glycating whatever cholesterol or protein the glucose can find.

Those grains not only increase hunger, but they’re the prime agent behind all modern diseases caused by the creation of glycation in the blood. That’s exactly what these foods do. How they do it, right now, isn’t important. What’s important is that these foods, in the manner in which they are digested, not only create the glycation but they create hunger as well. It’s this hunger they create that makes them addictive and dangerous to the point of deadly.

It has to do with the fluctuation of your hormones due to your diet of grains. Once grains are ground, they lose their fiber. This is important because it’s the fiber that slows down the breakdown of the sugars in the grains that influence your blood glucose. The slower those sugars are introduced into your system, the slower they raise your blood glucose. Most diabetics know this, as it’s the quick rise in blood glucose that is responsible for the glycation and the release of hormones that disrupt the normal functions of the body. This is what drives the hunger cycle. This is what makes everyone hungry. My theory is to eliminate this cycle, and to eliminate the cycle, means changing the equation, the equation of digestion. The best way to change that equation is to changes the factors of the equation, in this case, one factor. All you have to do to cure hunger and glycation is to remove carbohydrates from the equation and thus the diet. The solution is that simple. Maybe not easy, but simple.

When one considers the fact that the primary driver of hunger is a carbohydrate diet, it’s easy to see that the solution for hunger is to eliminate the hunger of hunger by changing the diet. Taking carbohydrates out of the diet removes the hunger factor and thus the hunger cycle. Anyone doubting this can go on the diet that I’ve been on for three years and they’ll know. Three years on the diet that I’ve been on will not only convince anyone of this concept, it will also improve their health in unimaginable ways. The last time I got hungry was 3 yrs 2 weeks ago. That was when I broke my addiction to glucose. Others who are on this diet will tell you the same thing, they don’t get hungry and the reason they don’t get hungry is that they don’t have the glucose going through their systems to create the hunger cycle.

Because this is an addiction, those who still eat carbs, can’t see. You have to break the addiction to know this. That’s the way it is with any addiction, you can’t see it while you’re in it. Yet, almost everyone knows that sugar is addictive. I think because nobody wants to equate that sugar with carbs, they don’t want to fully grasp that the carbs they were told they need, is sugar. Carbs, something you were told you have to have, breaks down to the exact same thing as sugar, and that’s glucose. Yet, they’re still telling everyone to eat whole grains. Maybe it’s always been spoken of in that manner because it seemed to justify our need for it. That, my friends, is the definition of co-dependent and I think you know what that deals with when co-dependency deals with a substance,  Well here’s your news flash; sugar including carbs, is addictive. That means that carbs are an addictive food to eat. It’s also deadly, deadlier than alcohol, deadlier than heroin than cigarettes and drug addiction. Sugar addiction is responsible for ECC, Excessive Carbohydrate Consumption. ECC is the deadliest addiction a person can have. It’s responsible for over 2000 deaths every day in the US alone. That number jumps to over 50,000 worldwide (daily). I can guarantee a manifestation of disease-causing AGEs to anyone who consumes a diet of grains. How much they consume will dictate how much glycation they get to deal with, but they will deal with it, guaranteed. The manner in which you cure the glycation will also cure the hunger. What it does is to wipe out the hunger cycle (and it does it altogether), it also does to the glycation cycle. That is how you cure hunger. That is also how you conquer and cure all modern diseases. You can do it in one fell swoop. This is exciting.

To me, the cure for hunger is the same cure for all the modern diseases that are responsible for over 2000 deaths every day. If you cure one, you cure the other. That will go miles to cure the problem of hunger around the world. We need to stop supplying the world with our killing field grains. It’s the hunger that proves the addictive nature of carbs. Once you break the addiction, you lose the hunger cycle and without a cycle to create your hunger, the hunger can’t exist. Hunger is then cured. You just have to solve the problem of too many people going without nutritious food and being subjected to a diet of non-nutritious food, which includes the category of grains.

It’s the cycle of hunger that’s responsible not only for growth, but also for all harm done in the name of growth or progress, as well as advancement, or security, or improvement Those are all desires driven by the cycle of hunger. It’s this cycle of hunger that drives these emotions. Deep down inside, you know this to be true. After you eat, when your blood sugars are at their highest, you are at one of your most relaxed attitudes of the day. The only other times you feel this secure is right after you eat any meal or snack (unless you’re consciously cheating on a diet and are dealing with guilt issues). This is the high side of the cycle, this is when you feel that everything is OK, “my stomach is full and I don’t feel like I need anything except to sit here and relax for a minute. This is how you feel at the end of Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Dinner, New Years Day dinner, Easter Dinner, etc, etc, etc. This is also the end of every meal you eat, to some extent. This is the glucose hitting your bloodstream, waiting to give you fuel for energy. This is also the start of glycation and the hunger cycle.

It’s the start of glycation because all that glucose you just put into your blood by eating your starchy grains, is now floating all through your blood after being broken down to glucose, starting with the saliva in your mouth. That means that before it hits your stomach, your blood glucose levels are reacting. This is the start of the hunger cycle to which there is no end until you stop feeding it. When your blood glucose levels fall and your stomach starts to shrink just a little bit after the digestion of your meal, that triggers your stomach to release Ghrelin, your hunger hormone. That’s the hormone that nobody on a carbohydrate diet can resist. That’s because many of those on a carb diet must satisfy that Ghrelin hormone. Once they get hungry they feel the need to satisfy their hunger usually with some form of carbohydrate more than anything else. This is the low side of the cycle that drives people to abhorrent behavior because of their need. This hunger and satiety cycle influences almost every other cycle our bodies go through. It’s what drives all human behavior, of those that are on a carbohydrate diet. This is the cycle that drives people into the use and abuse, of social media to slander, attack, and accuse without evidence, others they disagree with. As the Late Gwen Ifill said, “we have to guard against how we treat each other”. I noticed it was cancer that took Gwen from us.

This manner in how we treat each other is one of the reasons why I’m writing this post about what this food source that Monsanto has given us to eat is doing to everyone who eats it. Up until I watched Food, Inc, (Monsanto only played a small part in my equation. I didn’t realize they were behind this to the extent that they actually are. I now see that they are a much larger part of it than I expected.)

What their grains do with their glycating destruction starts with premature aging. It does that by driving fat production and the glycation factor that influences all modern disorders. That figures into everything glycation plays a factor in. Glycation is another name for inflammation. I know this. I’ve experienced the release from the addiction. The evidence in my books proves this. I know why we behave like the society that we do. It has to do with what we eat.

Nobody will believe me until they heed my advice and kick their own addiction. Only then, can they see the true light. I can guarantee the light you’ll see is a light of freedom, true freedom. Freedom from the cycle of hunger that drives virtually every other cycle. If you can eliminate this cycle, you can eliminate everything this cycle creates and drives, starting with obesity and diabetes and moving on to glycation. That will go far to improve not only health, but mental attitudes, and hence better emotional outcomes and less strife. That is true freedom, freedom from the cycle of hunger, freedom from the cycle of addiction. Freedom from the wild roller coaster ride of emotional swings. The freedom I experience is true freedom as this cycle does not affect anybody on a purely ketogenic diet. We’re not subject to the hunger cycle that the carb diet requires. By the same token, we’re not subject to the glycation cycle of destruction either. This cycle is also at the root of all violence and terrorism, as it subject to the same hormonal changes that control your emotions, as explained above. These emotions are just slightly altered because of their influence from the glucose fluctuations in your blood.

To control the glucose fluctuations, the easiest way is to control what feeds the cycle. That means to control the cycle you need to control the introduction of glucose into your body. Controlling the flow of sugars (carbs and fructose) is the only way you can control the blood glucose fluctuations. As easy as this may sound, that may be furthest from the truth. Controlling the inflow of carbs into your body is as difficult as fighting any addiction, because that’s exactly what you’re doing, fighting an addiction. That’s also why you must break the addiction, addictions kill prematurely and you can live without this addictive food.

This brings me to the conclusion that a ketogenic diet is the optimal diet for a society to be following for the best health of the society. The ketogenic diet not only removes the hormonal control out of the equation, it removes glycation out of the equation. That makes it a truly win, win diet for everyone to follow.

The problem here is sticking to a ketogenic diet. We’ll cover that here because it’s not only important, it’s vital to convert to the ketogenic diet to save yourself and our society as a whole. This is also how curing hunger can also cure terrorism by curing abhorrent behavior by removing your emotions from the hunger cycle. This removal of your emotions from the hunger cycle has multiple other benefits for your emotional behavior. It puts those emotions back in your control and not the control of the industry that promotes them. It also returns other emotional control you’d thought you’d lost years ago. The control you lost was a relinquishing of control to the industry that has addicted you. This isn’t your fault. You’ve always eaten carbs and sugar. They were considered healthy at one time. That again is because of their addictive nature.

In order to be able to stick to a ketogenic diet does that does mean breaking the addiction. Once it’s broke, you’ll know it and you’ll know it firmly, distinctly. It’s a feeling I still remember clearly, three years later. It’s a feeling of freedom. It’s a feeling of freedom from dependence on a substance that is as satisfying as it as dangerous. That is what makes it so dangerous, the fact that is so satisfying, so satiating, so hormonal fluctuating. That makes it also emotionally fluctuating. That makes it prone to emotional outbursts and terrorism. If you control your emotions and not let what you eat control them, that gives you more control over your emotional reactions and the consequences of those emotional reactions. This is a small synopsis of the control that glucose has on your actions and reactions. I being on a ketogenic diet do not experience this control of my emotions or actions or reactions due to glucose influence. I’ve learned how to live without that influence. I learned that three years, two weeks ago. It may have been the best day of my life. But I have to admit that sticking to a ketogenic diet is difficult to get into. It took me over two years to transform into the diet I’ve been on since I started writing my books. One thing I know is that I could have never accomplished this without being on this diet. It’s not only overcome severe chronic pain, but it’s also overcome pre-diabetic conditions as well as high blood pressure, chronic constipation from the drugs that were prescribed, near obesity, and brain drain, more than anything else. Being on my ketogenic diet has sharpened my brain to a point I wish it could have been when I was in school.  Boy, would my life have been different.

This is why I want to help you succeed at your attempt to convert, it’s that important for our society if we’re to end hunger and terrorism. In order to do that I recommend to stop buying everything that raises your blood glucose more than 50 pts on the glycemic index. This will keep your blood glucose levels from reaching glycating or hunger cycling proportions. This is the starting point that I used when I started three years ago. I cut out bread first. That was the hardest because that included everything that flour is used in. To do otherwise is not giving up the bread. After the magic came from giving up the bread, I switched those calories to calories from higher fiber carbs like vegetables and fresh fruit. I was still reluctant to put dairy in my diet then, as I still have some Almond Milk in my fridge, I didn’t realize it then because my knowledge hadn’t grown to the point to where I decided to go completely ketogenic, so I was still putting more sugar in my body than what I am now, where I’m experiencing the improvements in my mental functions as well as my physical abilities.  I’m actually healing my paralysis, little by little. My fight side is actually getting more functional every day that I remain on this diet,

That is why I decided to convert to a completely keto diet after two years of simply a low carb diet. That may have got me to my weight goal, but it wasn’t getting me my brain back. Quitting bread prompted me to quit all grains and starchy carbohydrates like potatoes and beans. That felt so great, I decided to go completely keto approximately one year ago. That’s when I started my website and started writing all the information that I’m packing into three books. If anyone else were doing this I would think it phenomenal. But because it’s myself doing this, I’m just driven to get this information out there where the public can see it. Killing my mother has become my driving force to get this known. My ability to accomplish this working in a state of paralysis, to me is phenomenal. for that I have to thank Dr. Perlmutter, Thank you, Dr. Perlmutter, I couldn’t have done this without your book or advice.

For those who want something to kill? I’ve got something for you to kill. Kill your hunger cycle. Kill it before it kills you first. Monsanto may have different ideas, though. Their profits depend on your hunger cycle. Their drug industry depends on your hunger cycle. Your hunger cycle drives you to eat more and more carbs to satisfy that hunger cycle. If you want to kill something worth killing, kill your hunger cycle and do it as quick as you can. The following report from Wikipedia shows why;

The influence of funding on research and the management of conflicts of interests as explained from The New England Journal of Medicine (Aug 19, 1993)

“Conflict of interest” in the field of medical research has been defined as “a set of conditions in which professional judgment concerning a primary interest (such as a patients welfare or the validity of research) tends to be unduly influenced by a secondary interest (such as financial gain).”]

In the early 1900s private companies such as the Carbolic Smoke Ball Company,[15] Mrs. Winlow’s Soothing Syrup[16]among other snake medicine remedies were solicited around the world and were the cause of many deaths due to misinformation. Information was not readily available to consumers nor was it required of the pharmaceutical producers to inform their customers of the ingredients that they were consuming. Samuel Hopkins Adams was an investigator to uncover the wide corruption and falsehoods that existed within the American pharmaceutical industry. He is quoted saying: “Gullible America will spend this year some seventy-five millions of dollars in the purchase of patent medicines. In consideration of this sum, it will swallow huge quantities of alcohol, an appalling amount of opiates and narcotics, a wide assortment of varied drugs ranging from powerful and dangerous heart depressants to insidious liver stimulants; and far in excess of all other ingredients, undiluted fraud.”[15]

Regulation on industry-funded biomedical research has seen great changes since Samuel Hopkins Adams declaration. In 1906 Congress passed the Pure Food and Drugs Act of 1906.[16] In 1912 Congress passed the Shirley Amendment to prohibit the wide dissemination of false information on pharmaceuticals.[16] The Food and Drug Administration was formally created in 1930 under the McNarey Mapes Amendment to oversee the regulation of Food and Drugs in the United States.[16] In 1962 the Kefauver-Harris Amendments to the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act made it so that before a drug was marketed in the United States the FDA must first approve that the drug was safe.[16] The Kefauver-Harris amendments also mandated that more stringent clinical trials must be performed before a drug is brought to the market.[15]The Kefauver-Harris amendments were met with opposition from industry due to the requirement of lengthier clinical trial periods that would lessen the period of time in which the investor is able to see a return on their money. In the pharmaceutical industry, patents are typically granted for a 20-year period of time, and most patent applications are submitted during the early stages of the product development.[15]According to Ariel Katz on average after a patent application is submitted it takes an additional 8 years before the FDA approves a drug for marketing.[15] As such this would leave a company with only 12 years to market the drug to see a return on their investments. After a sharp decline of new drugs entering the US market following the 1962 Kefauver-Harris amendments economist Sam Petlzman concluded that cost of loss of innovation was greater than the savings recognized by consumers no longer purchasing ineffective drugs.[15] In 1984 the Hatch-Waxman Act or the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 was passed by Congress.[16] The Hatch-Waxman Act was passed with the idea that giving brand manufacturers the ability to extend their patent by an additional 5 years would create greater incentives for innovation and private sector funding for investment.[17]

The relationship that exists with industry-funded biomedical research is that of which industry is the financier for academic institutions which in turn employ scientific investigators to conduct research. A fear that exists wherein a project is funded by industry is that firms might negate informing the public of negative effects to better promote their product.[15] A list of studies show that public fear of the conflicts of interest that exist when biomedical research is funded by industry can be considered valid after a 2003 publication of “Scope and Impact of Financial Conflicts of Interest in Biomedical Research” in The Journal of American Association of Medicine. This publication included 37 different studies that met specific criteria to determine whether or not an academic institution or scientific investigator funded by industry had engaged in behavior that could be deduced to be a conflict of interest in the field of biomedical research. Survey results from one study concluded that 43% of scientific investigators employed by a participating academic institution had received research-related gifts and discretionary funds from industry sponsors.[11]Another participating institution surveyed showed that 7.6% of investigators were financially tied to research sponsors, including paid speaking engagements (34%), consulting arrangements (33%), advisory board positions (32%) and equity (14%).[11] A 1994 study concluded that 58% out of 210 life science companies indicated that investigators were required to withhold information pertaining to their research as to extend the life of the interested companies’ patents.[11] Rules and regulations regarding conflict of interest disclosures are being studied by experts in the biomedical research field to eliminate conflicts of interest that could possibly affect the outcomes of biomedical research.

This is almost a definition of what Monsanto has accomplished in the last 40 years and they seem to be doing their level best to increase their power. It’s their food that glycates your blood. It’s their food that addicts you to eat more and more of their food. It’s their food that creates the hunger cycle that drives your behavior. It’s this company that is forcing farmers to grow their seed to grow the crops to put on your table to eat. That means that it’s this company that is responsible for over 45,000 deaths every day from ECC, Excessive Carbohydrate Consumption. ECC is the deadliest addiction mankind has ever experienced. It’s Monsanto who’s infiltrated their execs into the offices of the USDA and the FDA the government departments that control all the agencies and offices within them.

This has given them unprecedented control over what goes in our mouths to eat. That has given them full control over the diseases and disorders all who eat their food will acquire. That is something I can virtually guarantee. Why? It lies in the science of a glucose diet, the deadliest diet now that a man can use.

Thank you, Monsanto :(

Forever will I despise this.

Why No Warnings from the FDA About gluten and sugar?

FDA’s Assessment of Gluten and Sugar.

It would be nice if this was a problem with just the grain industry but it’s not. It also involves the FDA and what has influenced them to not issue warnings for this allergen. The more I look at it, the more I see that it is a problem with overextending corporate entities. Knowing the dealings that Monsanto has had in the past with competitors and their own judicial systems, it’s not hard to fathom at all the involvement they would have, in the cover-up of these studies. It’s actually easy to see their involvement the same as the sugar industry. They didn’t just cover up the studies condemning gluten, they initiated reports themselves that showed gluten was healthy. That is a complete falsehood of the truth of what gluten does.

grunge-cracked-fda-approved-background-some-smooth-lines-69009424

Gluten does the same thing as sugar. Why won’t the FDA recognize that? They have all the studies that point to it. Don’t they read them?

The following is an excerpt from an FDA study on Gluten as an allergen (1 of 173 studies).

What is the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) of 2004? 

FALCPA is an amendment to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and requires that the label of a food that contains an ingredient that is or contains protein from a “major food allergen ” declare the presence of the allergen in the manner described by the law.

Gluten

  1. Why is there a concern about gluten? 

Gluten describes a group of proteins found in certain grains (wheat, barley, and rye.) It is of concern because people with celiac disease cannot tolerate it. Celiac disease (also known as celiac sprue) is a chronic digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. Recent findings estimate that 2 million people in the U.S. have celiac disease or about 1 in 133 people.

  1. What does FALCPA require with regard to gluten?

FALCPA requires FDA to issue a proposed rule that will define and permit the voluntary use of the term “gluten-free” on the labeling of foods by August 2006 and a final rule no later than August 2008.

  1. What has FDA done in response to the FALCPA mandate?

FDA held a public meeting in August 2005 to obtain expert comment and consultation from stakeholders to help FDA develop a regulation to define and permit the voluntary use on food labeling of the term “gluten-free” (Public Meeting On Gluten-Free Food Labeling). The meeting focused on food manufacturing, analytical methods, and consumer issues related to reduced levels of gluten in food.

FDA’s gluten-free definition is that the food contains less than 20 ppm of gluten. It seems their concern is more with labeling than it is with safety. If it were with safety, they’d be warning us about the dangers that I’ve listed, yet they don’t as if they were influenced by an outside source.

They consider wheat and gluten as undeclared allergens yet they refuse to acknowledge its allergenic properties to the extent that they won’t require a warning label for it. Yet they know what damage it does. All they require is a mention of wheat in the ingredients and nothing more. That is their warning. Consider this your warning; Grains are poison, and that includes wheat.

Their negligence in regards to our health in this manner is unconscionable. I can only assume that they’ve been influenced by the other side of the industry that provides crop seed for the farmers that grow the food that the FDA approves for us to eat. The other side of this industry, owned by the same corporations, is the pharmaceutical industry. They provide us with all of the drugs that we take to fight the disease caused by the food provided their sister pharmaceutical industry.

What I wonder is, what does the FDA consider stakeholders? Are they the corporate entities who have an interest in proliferating wheat and gluten? Since we now know that this happened with sugar, why wouldn’t the same thing happen with gluten? We know that gluten breaks down into nothing more than glucose (sugar), I can see where the same situation would exist today, that existed 50 -60 years ago. In fact, I believe it’s an ongoing problem.

Just like in the tobacco industry, “selling a product that is already sold for them as it’s addictive”, the same mantra is heard in the grain industry concerning their gluten.  “How can people refuse to buy our products? They’re addictive so people will want them more.

I salute the FDA for monitoring products claiming to be gluten-free yet have more than a trace of gluten in them, such as the Investigation into General Mills for selling Cheerios that had more than the allowed limit of 20 ppm of gluten. Yet knowing what damage gluten does to the body, I have to wonder why do they still allow it to be marketed without any warnings? The tobacco companies can’t market their products without warnings. Why is the food industry allowed to? The evidence lies within the vaults of the FDA, showing all the damage it does. Why do they ignore that evidence?

What evidence, you say? This evidence lies in the excerpts below, from three of their 173 studies on gluten;

  1. “Gluten is the protein that naturally occurs in wheat, rye, barley, and crossbreeds of these grains.Most people can eat gluten, but in people with celiac disease, gluten intake gradually damages the intestines, prevents the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and can lead to other health problems. Symptoms can include diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, abdominal pain, brain fog, rashes, nausea, vomiting, and other reactions.”
  2. “People who have an allergy to wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat wheat. Symptoms may include swelling, itching or irritation of mouth or throat, difficulty breathing, nasal congestion, itchy or watery eyes, rash or hives, headaches, nausea, vomiting, cramps, diarrhea, or anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening reaction.”What I can’t understand, with this kind of disruption of bodily functions, why doesn’t this require a warning like cigarettes? It’s clearly killed more people.
  3. ”Unlike food allergies, clinical signs and symptoms do not appear to be reliable markers of disease activity because many individuals affected with celiac disease may be entirely asymptomatic. This tells me that a lot more people suffer from the disease than what has been diagnosed. Furthermore, although biomarkers of genetic susceptibility (e.g., presence of DQ2 and/or DQ8 HLA alleles) and gluten exposure [e.g., antibodies for gliadin (AGA), endomysial (EMA), and tissue transglutaminase (tTG)] have been defined for use in noninvasive diagnosis of individuals with celiac disease, these biomarkers have not been shown to correlate with disease severity nor to be useful in assessing daily responses to gluten exposures. Rather, evidence of intestinal mucosal inflammation is the gold standard biomarker for diagnosis of celiac disease and for assessment of disease severity. Intestinal mucosal inflammation may occur long before the development of clinical signs or a rise in antibody titers following a gluten challenge. Intestinal inflammation is assessed by intestinal biopsy, which is an invasive procedure, associated with false negatives (due to sampling error), and is impractical for frequent monitoring of disease activity or severity.”     Revised Threshold Report Page 58 of 108
  4. “Unpublished data described in Moneret-Vautrin and Kanny (2004) show that 83% of wheat allergic children reacted to less than 2 g of wheat flour while only 18% of wheat allergic adults responded at this level. Unpublished data described in Moneret Vautrin (2004) on wheat flour, challenges using 32 children and 32 adults with wheat allergy, reported a LOAEL of ≤ 1.8 mg protein for allergic children (the lowest tested dose) and 52.8 mg protein for allergic adults. Scibilia et al. (2006) reported that 2 of 13 responders reacted to the lowest dose of wheat flour tested (100 mg of a mix of bread and durum flour, approximately 15 mg protein) in DBPCFCs. In total, 31% of the patients who reacted did so to challenge doses less than or equal to 240 mg of wheat protein.” Approaches to Establish Thresholds for Major Food Allergens My question how many people eat this amount? Most people eat around 150mg of wheat products in a day, not enough to express symptoms of celiac disease, but enough to do unnoticed damage.
  5. “The foods of concern for individuals with, or susceptible to, celiac disease are the cereal grains that contain the storage proteins prolamin and glutelin (commonly referred to as glutens in wheat), including all varieties of wheat (e.g., durum, spelt, kamut), barley (where the storage proteins are called hordiens), rye (where the storage proteins are called secalins), and their cross-bred hybrids (such as triticale). The proportion of individuals with celiac disease that are also sensitive to the storage proteins in oats (avenins) has not been determined but is likely to be less than 1% (Kelly, 2005).”
  6. “The clinical manifestations of celiac disease are highly variable in character and severity. The reasons for this diversity are unknown but may depend on the age and immunological status of the individual, the amount, duration, or timing of exposure to gluten, and the specific area and extent of the gastrointestinal tract involved by disease (Dewar et al., 2004). These clinical manifestations can be divided into gastrointestinal, or “classic,” and non-gastrointestinal manifestations. Gastrointestinal manifestations usually present in children 4 to 24 months old and include abdominal pain and cramping, bloating, recurrent or chronic diarrhea in association with weight loss, poor growth, nutrient deficiency, and (in rare cases) a life-threatening metabolic emergency termed celiac crisis, characterized by hypokalemia and acidosis secondary to profuse diarrhea (Farrell and Kelly, 2002; Baranwal et al., 2003). Non-gastrointestinal manifestations are more insidious and highly variable and are the common presenting signs in older children and adults. These manifestations are frequently the result of long-term nutrient malabsorption, including iron deficiency anemia, short stature, delayed puberty, infertility, and osteoporosis or osteopenia (Fasano, 2003). In children, progressive malabsorption of nutrients may lead to growth, developmental, or neurological delays (Catassi and Fasano, 2004). Extra-intestinal manifestations such as dermatitis herpetiformis, hepatitis, peripheral neuropathy, ataxia, and epilepsy have also been associated with celiac disease (Fasano and Catassi, 2001). Individuals with untreated celiac disease are also at increased risk for potentially serious medical conditions, such as other autoimmune diseases (e.g., Type I diabetes mellitus) and intestinal cancers associated with high mortality (Farrell and Kelly, 2002; Peters et al., 2003; Catassi et al., 2002). For example, individuals with celiac disease have an 80-fold greater risk of developing adenocarcinoma of the small intestine, a greater than two-fold increased risk for intestinal or extra intestinal lymphomas (Green and Jabri, 2003) and a 20-fold greater risk of developing enteropathy-associated T cell lymphoma (EATL) (Catassi et al.,”
  7. “There is no standard protocol for gluten challenges, and challenge studies have varied greatly in amount and duration of gluten exposure. Although some studies have been designed to determine the acute effects (i.e., after 4 hours) of exposure to gluten (Sturgesset al., 1994; Ciclitiraet al., 1984), most challenges consist of an open challenge to a fixed or incremental dose of daily gluten over a minimum period of 4 weeks. Many challenge studies use a high exposure (≥ 10 g/day) to gluten, because this is believed to shorten time to disease confirmation or relapse and, therefore, to minimize discomfort to subjects (Rolles and McNeish, 1976). However, some studies have shown that low daily exposures to gluten also can elicit a disease response (Catassi et al., 1993; Laurin et al., 2002; Hamilton and McNeill, 1972).”      
  8. “At this time there is no correlative information on the efficacy of using these tests to predict or help prevent adverse effects in individuals with celiac disease.”
  9. “Although gluten-free diets are considered the only effective treatment for individuals with celiac disease, it has been recognized that it is difficult, if not impossible, to maintain a diet that is completely devoid of gluten (Collinet al., 2004). Therefore, several attempts have been made to define gluten-free in regulatory contexts. Efforts by the Codex Alimentarius to define an international standard for “gluten-free” labeling date back to 1981. At that time, due to the lack of sensitive, specific analytical methods, a threshold value of 0.05 g nitrogen per 100 g dry matter was set for wheat starch, on the assumption that wheat protein would be the only source of nitrogen in starch (Codex Standard 118-1981). The Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses is developing a revised standard. The current draft proposal would define three categories of gluten-free foods: processed foods that are naturally “gluten-free” (≤ 20 ppm of gluten), products that had been rendered “gluten-free” by processing (≤ 200 ppm), and any mixture of the two (≤ 200 ppm). The Australia New Zealand Food Agency (ANZFA) defines gluten to mean “the main protein in wheat, rye, oats, barley, triticale and spelt relevant to the medical conditions, Coeliac disease and dermatitis hepetiformis.” ANZFA recognizes two classes of foods, gluten-free foods (” …no detectable gluten”) and low-gluten foods (” …no more than 20 mg gluten per 100 gm of the food”) (ANZFA Food Code Standard 1.2.8). The Canadian standard for “gluten-free” is more general, simply stating that “No person shall label, package, sell or advertise a food in a manner likely to create an impression that it is a “gluten-free” food unless the food does not contain wheat, including spelt and kamut, or oats, barley, rye, triticale or any part thereof” (Canadian Food and Drugs Act Regulation B.24.018).”     Approaches to Establish Thresholds for Major Food Allergens and for Gluten in Food. III, IV, V.Now that you know what grains this involves you can get an idea of what not to eat.
  10. ”Like food allergies, celiac disease affects only a small proportion of the U.S. population (estimated at 1%, 3.1 million) (NIH, 2004). Susceptibility to celiac disease is genetically determined and is linked to the presence of the DQ2 or DQ8 HLA alleles. However, carrying these alleles does not necessarily lead to celiac disease. Both acute and chronic morbidity have been well documented for individuals with symptomatic celiac disease. A gluten-free diet has been shown to greatly reduce the risk for cancer and overall mortality for these individuals. The potential benefit of a gluten-free diet has not been established for individuals with silent or latent celiac disease.”

I submit that this is a disease of a much grander scale, meaning a lot more people suffer from it than what’s reported, as far too often this disease goes completely unrecognized and thus undiagnosed. I hear complaints from many carboholics about many of the disorders at the top of this list. That tells me that they each have an allergic intolerance to gluten and they don’t even know it.  Because of its addictive nature, they’ll never know it, unless they can give it up.

The above paragraphs apply to those with celiac disease, yet I contend that everyone experience some of the above reactions to some degree. This happens even more so if you consume more of their products. I thought I could eat this food for 58 years until I learned that I had allergies to it. Now I know that I have allergic intolerances to this food. It presents itself every time I try to eat it again.

My guess is 90% of the population is exactly the same as I am, allergic to the protein in gluten. I contend that the obesity and diabetes rates that exist today confirm this. The death rates of all the diseases caused by gluten prove it. That forces me to ask, with all the evidence available in your archives, why doesn’t this food require a warning?

This is what the FDA claims they’re concerned about;

“In 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 117 (part 117), we have established our regulation entitled “Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk Based Preventive Controls for Human Food.” We published the final rule establishing part 117 in the Federal Register of September 17, 2015 (80 FR 55908). Part 117 establishes requirements for current good manufacturing practice for human food (CGMPs), for hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for human food (PCHF), and related requirements.”

After reviewing over half of the documents available and an examination of all the titles of the documents, I see nothing that bans the inclusion of any of these dangerous foods in our food products made for public consumption (processed foods, including bread). It seems their interest lies only in compliance with the labeling of the product. They want to make sure that a package that’s sold as gluten-free has to have less than 20ppm gluten in the product.

They don’t even feel that it’s important enough to warn you that a product contains gluten, yet they don’t feel it important enough to warn you of the dangers of gluten on the package like they do with the dangers of cigarettes. They recognize the danger of tobacco, why can’t they recognize the dangers of gluten and wheat? It seems that they’re content with simply warning you how much a product is gluten-free, but not how much gluten it has in it as if it does no harm at all. “C’MON MAN.” I have access to the same studies they have. They’re all located at PUBMED.COM and they all explain the dangers this food presents. If I can learn about what this food does, they have to know. Why are they so willing to ignore it? Why are they so willing to treat this food as though there’s nothing wrong with it.

The first page of studies I opened brought me to this study, the twelfth study out of 1797 studies on the list and reveals the dangers of just breathing the dust from these cereal grains. The grain induced asthma which affects those who work in the various fields in the grain industry, as stated by the Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Research:

“Asthma caused by allergy to proteins from cereal grains is one of the most common types of occupational asthma (OA) and its prevalence does not seem to be declining.1 The main professions affected are: bakers, confectioners, pastry factory workers, millers, farmers, and cereal handlers. Although wheat is the most commonly involved cereal, other grains (e.g. rye, barley, rice) also play a role. In addition, flour from other sources (e.g. soya, lupin), pests, and several flour additives used in the baking industry to improve fermentation and elasticity of the dough, as well as to improve storage of the bread, may also give rise to IgE-mediated allergy.”  “This disorder has been classically considered a form of allergic asthma mediated by IgE antibodies specific to cereal flour antigens, mainly wheat, rye and barley,”

In the tenth study the on the list published, in July 2009, it’s been found that the globulins in wheat can cause type 1 diabetes. T1D is an autoimmune disorder that was thought to have no cause. At least, all the studies I’ve looked at didn’t reveal this. According to BioMed Central;

“Taken together, the results indicate that a diverse group of globulins exists in wheat, some of which could be associated with the pathogenesis of T1D in some susceptible individuals.Taken together, the results indicate that a diverse group of globulins exists in wheat, some of which could be associated with the pathogenesis of T1D in some susceptible individuals. These data expand our knowledge of specific wheat globulins and will enable further elucidation of their role in wheat biology and human health.

I have read elsewhere that it might be thought that an allergen might trigger an autoimmune response that shuts down the hormones that trigger insulin manufacture in the pancreas. It appears that this is that finding. Wheat can be responsible for type 1 diabetes. Have you seen any warnings for that? I haven’t. Have any been issued? I haven’t seen them. Why haven’t they been issued? How many parents have fed their kids bread to find out that their children are diabetic because of this auto-immune disorder? Why is bread still considered by so many to be a necessity of life?  It doesn’t appear so. It appears more likely to be a destroyer of life.

This is what I’m concerned about;

47,397 deaths daily from CVDs

47,397 people died each day, worldwide, from cardiovascular disease in 2013.  That breaks down to over 1800 Americans that died every day from cardiovascular disease in 2013. That’s 17.3 million annually, worldwide. That was up from 12.3 million (25.8%) in 1990According to Wikipedia“Coronary artery disease and stroke account for 80% of CVD deaths in males and 75% of CVD deaths in females.[1] Most cardiovascular disease affects older adults. In the United States, 11% of people between 20 and 40 have CVD, while 37% between 40 and 60, 71% of people between 60 and 80, and 85% of people over 80 have CVD.[10] The average age of death from coronary artery disease in the developed world is around 80 while it is around 68 in the developing world.” This rate is increasing each year by

This points to the fact the this food which is eaten on a daily basis does so little damage incrementally to the consumer that it’s never noticed until it’s too late. The disease has already manifested itself and the price is now being paid for a lifetime of consumption. The question I keep asking myself is why does this have to keep happening? Why hasn’t the FDA warned us about the dangers of this food? They have access to all of the same reports that I do, yet they still refuse to acknowledge that this food is dangerous.

Does their interest lie elsewhere? Is there corporate influence involved with this like there was with sugar?

The sugar industry actively took steps for years to influence public’s perception of the nutritional value of their product, when they clearly knew of the dangers it posed. “Food companies have spent billions of dollars to cover up the link between sugar consumption and health problems. That’s the conclusion of a new report from the Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).”

According to The Guardian;

Sugar lobby paid scientists to blur sugar’s role in heart disease – report

“New report highlights battle by the industry to counter sugar’s negative health effects, and the cushy relationship between food companies and researchers”. ” Influential research that downplayed the role of sugar in heart disease in the 1960s was paid for by the sugar industry, according to a report released on Monday.

These actions are responsible for more deaths than all the world wars combined. Their actions have killed, hurt or harmed more than 500,000,000 people in the last 30 years alone. (At 17.3 million for heart disease alone, 500 million is a lowball estimate for death coming from cancer and dementia as well.) All total, the death rate for ECC is over 24,000,000 each year. That’s over 65,753 deaths each day, simply from excessive carbohydrate consumption. (Remember carbs = sugar.)

With backing from a sugar lobby, scientists promoted dietary fat as the cause of coronary heart disease instead of sugar, according to a historical document review published in JAMA Internal MedicineThis was criminal, yet nothing was done about it.

Though the review is nearly 50 years old, it also showcases a decades-long battle by the sugar industry to counter the product’s negative health effects. Why isn’t this agency being held accountable?

The findings come from documents recently found by a researcher at the University of San Francisco, which show that scientists at the Sugar Research Foundation (SRF), known today as the Sugar Association, paid scientists to do a 1967 literature review that overlooked the role of sugar in heart disease. Wasn’t that a clear case of bribery that should have been prosecuted?

SRF set an objective for the review, funded it and reviewed drafts before it was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which did not require conflict of interest disclosure until 1984. The three Harvard scientists who wrote the review made what would be $50,000 in today’s dollars from the review. Because of this bribery, over 500,000,000 have suffered from this diseases that sugar is responsible for. From diabetes to heart disease to arthritis to cancer to…you should know the list by now.

“Marion Nestle, a nutrition, food studies and public health professor at New York University, said the food industry continues to influence nutrition science, in an editorial published alongside the JAMA report When will it stop? Never, until we let this industry know that we won’t accept their definition of healthy food and stop buying their versions of it.

 “Today, it is almost impossible to keep up with the range of food companies sponsoring research – from makers of the most highly processed foods, drinks, and supplements to producers of dairy foods, meats, fruits, and nuts – typically yielding results favorable to the sponsor’s interests,” Nestle said. “Food company sponsorship, whether or not intentionally manipulative, undermines public trust in nutrition science, contributes to public confusion about what to eat, and compromises Dietary Guidelines in ways that are not in the best interest of public health.”

The cushy relationship between food companies and researcher has been captured in recent investigations by the Associated Press and New York Times.The AP revealed in June that candy trade groups were funding research into sweets. And in 2015, the New York Times showed how Coca-Cola has funded millions in research to downplay the link between sugary beverages and obesity.

The Sugar Association said in a statement that SRF “should have exercised greater transparency” in its research, but also accused the study authors of having an “anti-sugar narrative”.

“We question this author’s continued attempts to reframe historical occurrences to conveniently align with the currently trending anti-sugar narrative, particularly when the last several decades of research have concluded that sugar does not have a unique role in heart disease,” the Sugar Association said. “Most concerning is the growing use of headline-baiting articles to trump quality scientific research – we’re disappointed to see a journal of JAMA’s stature being drawn into this trend.”

The findings were based on documents found by Cristin Kearns, a postdoctoral fellow at UCSF, in library archives.

The scientists and executives involved are no longer alive.

In recent years, the link between fat and heart disease has become a more contentious topic – a 2010 review of scientific studies of fat in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that “there is no convincing evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease”. The role of sugar in heart disease is still being debated.”

Even according to Mother Jones“The industry’s tactics—similar to those used by Big Tobacco in downplaying the adverse health effects of smoking—were explored by Gary Taubes and Cristin Kearns Couzens in the 2012 Mother Jones investigation “Big Sugar’s Sweet Little Lies.” But this latest report draws on some newly released documents submitted as evidence in a recent federal court case involving the two biggest players in the sweetener industry: the Sugar Association and the Corn Refiners Association (the trade group for manufacturers of high fructose corn syrup). ”

The evidence is piling up.

The FDA can’t hide their complicity much longer.

Even according to Mother Jones“The industry’s tactics—similar to those used by Big Tobacco in downplaying the adverse health effects of smoking—were explored by Gary Taubes and Cristin Kearns Couzens in the 2012 Mother Jones investigation “Big Sugar’s Sweet Little Lies.” But this latest report draws on some newly released documents submitted as evidence in a recent federal court case involving the two biggest players in the sweetener industry: the Sugar Association and the Corn Refiners Association (the trade group for manufacturers of high fructose corn syrup). ”

“Obesity and diabetes mellitus are often linked to cardiovascular disease,[53] as are a history of chronic kidney disease and hypercholesterolemia.[54] In fact, cardiovascular disease is the most life-threatening of the diabetic complications and diabetics are two- to four-fold more likely to die of cardiovascular-related causes than nondiabetics.”

According to the World Heart Association ;

“Up to 90% of cardiovascular disease may be preventable if established risk factors are avoided.[65]“ Their goal is 25 by 25. “25×25, achieving a 25% relative reduction in overall mortality from cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes or chronic respiratory disease by 2025. In September 2011, the United Nations held a High-Level Meeting in New York on the subject of NCDs, including cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancers, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases.“

They’re actively taking steps to lower the death rate of CVDs by recommending everyone to eat right, quit smoking, and exercise, all of which will lower this number one killer of people. Eating right, in my opinion, is by far the best way to combat CVDs, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol (which is really a problem of unbalanced cholesterol), arthritis and worst of all, dementia and Alzheimer disease.

In all of my research, I can’t find anything that says to limit the use of bread and starchy carbohydrates made from grains. Yet all research I’ve looked at from PubMed and even the FDA show that this food does cause these disorders. Every time I look at the data, I’m forced to ask myself, why hasn’t’ the FDA, WHA, or the ADA condemned this food? These agencies have to know what’s going on, yet they refuse to act. Who is blocking this action?

After researching my book It’s Time For A Cure, I’ve learned that this food is at the base of all of the diseases listed above, forcing me to ask, why hasn’t the FDA or the WHF warned us of this food. The only reason I can come up with is that it is being protected from prosecution by the industry that provides the crop seed for the farmer as well as the drugs to combat the arthritis caused by what their seed grows into.

From PubMed’s study; Characterization of Proteins from Grain of Different Bread and Durum Wheat Genotypes: “Wheat is unique among the edible grains because wheat flour has the protein complex called “gluten” that can be formed into dough with the rheological properties required for the production of leavened bread [9]. The rheological properties of gluten are needed not only for bread production, but also in the wider range of foods that can only be made from wheat, viz., noodles, pasta, pocket breads, pastries, cookies, and other products [10]. The gluten proteins consist of monomeric gliadins and polymeric glutenins. Glutenins and gliadins are recognized as the major wheat storage proteins, constituting about 75–85% of the total grain proteins with a ratio of about 1:1 in common or bread wheat [3,11] and they tend to be rich in asparagine, glutamine, arginine or proline [12] but very low in nutritionally important amino acids lysine, tryptophan and methionine [13].”

“Very low in nutritionally important amino acids” interests me. Amino acids are proteins. When you take away the protein, you’re left with little else but carbohydrates. This fact combined with the fact that gliadins have been shown to provoke the body to release anti-gliadin antibodies, which also have been shown to have the ability to attach themselves to Purkinje cells in the cerebellum, make this food suspect, at the least.

When an anti-gliadin antibody attaches itself to a cell in the cerebellum, the brain renders that cell useless and discards it. Although many parts of your brain can grow new cells to replace discarded cells, this area of the brain can’t. That means whenever an anti-gliadin antibody attaches itself to a Purkinje cell, that part of the brain never comes back. Yes, that does mean brain damage for those who release these anti-gliadin antibodies.

The question this brings up is how many of us release these antibodies? Judging from the amount of Alzheimer’s disease invading the civilized world, I would say a majority of people display this form of intolerance….a rather large majority.  The next question this congers is, am I one of them? Are you one of them? I found out that I am. Have you yet?

42,657 deaths worldwide from cardiovascular disease

Heart disease kills more people every year than any other single cause. Over 42,000 people die from this disease and every day and the only reason it exists is the high amount of sugar we put into our bodies. It brings about the glycation ECC is responsible for and it’s this glycation that is responsible 42,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease every day.

But that’s not all it is responsible for. We have to look at Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We have to consider cancer, and we have to worry about the amount of high blood pressure and high cholesterol ECC is responsible for. All of these disorders are money producing the diseases that this industry generates, simply for the sake of profit. It’s this profit that is killing everyone

13,698 daily deaths globally from Alzheimer disease

13.698 die each day, worldwide, due to Alzheimer disease alone. That amounts to over 500 deaths daily in the US alone, which means that at least 20 people in this country will die this hour alone, due to Alzheimer disease. Nothing contributes to Alzheimer disease as much as bread consumption. It’s the starchy carbs that break down to glucose, and it’s the glucose that glycates the cholesterol and protein that builds up the plaque and inflammation in your blood that leads to Alzheimer disease, cancer, arthritis, Atherosclerosis as well as most all other CVDs, as well as hypertension and high cholesterol.

11,232 deaths daily from cancer worldwide

11,232 people die every day globally due to some form of cancer and with all the evidence available that wheat contributes to the spread of multiple forms of cancer, why hasn’t the FDA made any statements about the dangers this food presents to the human body. Evidence shows these devastating effects going back to the bones of earliest cavemen that have been discovered.

I recently watched a Nova program on a 5,000-year-old iceman mummy that had been frozen in an ice flow until he was discovered in 1991. They found remnants of einkorn wheat in his upper digestive tract suggesting his last meal was bread made from the flour of einkorn wheat. His bones also showed “disease of a modern lifestyle”, as they like to call it. What is this disease of a modern lifestyle? Arthritis. This is evidence of the glycation that occurred in this man from eating the carb-loaded bread made from einkorn wheat. Even as difficult as it was to digest einkorn wheat at that time, due to its fibrous nature, it still did the same damage then, that it does today to everyone who continues to eat this food.

Copied from NOVA on PBS concerning a 5,000-year-old frozen mummy ;

“Oeggl reconstructed the Iceman’s last meal from his microscopic analysis of a tiny sample removed from the mummy’s transverse colon, the part of the intestine just beyond the stomach. When the Iceman was discovered in 1991, x-rays and CAT-scans of the corpse revealed that his internal organs had shrunken so drastically in the 5,300 years in the glacier that Dr. Dieter Zur Nedden, the radiologist who examined the images, could barely distinguish them. Instead of filling the chest cavity with their billowy white form, the lungs looked like wisps of clouds.

But at the top of the colon, Zur Nedden made out a slight bulge, which the radiologist suspected was a clump of half-processed food. The progress of the food indicated that the Iceman had last eaten about eight hours before he died, possibly of hypothermia, on the Hauslabjoch pass, which cuts over the main Alpine ridge dividing Austria from Italy at 10,500 feet above sea level.

Not until several years after the discovery did the Innsbruck scientists finally cut a hole into the mummy, insert an endoscope, and snip out about .004 ounces from the colon. Dr. Werner Platzer, the University of Innsbruck anatomist then in charge of research on the corpse, gave .0016 ounces milligrams of the material to Oeggl, who had already been studying the rich botanical finds from the site.

Pollen provided a snapshot of the environment the Iceman was exposed to in the hours before his death

Oeggl’s sample was barely the size of his little fingernail. Under the microscope, he quickly identified the flake-like, semi-digested material that made up the bulk of the sample as einkorn, the most important wheat of the Neolithic, the period of prehistory in which people lived in semi-permanent settlements and survived by agriculture and keeping animals. The discovery of einkorn, which does not occur naturally in Europe, in the Iceman’s intestinal tract suggested that he had contact with an agricultural community. The dominance of bran in the sample led Oeggl to believe that the wheat had been finely ground into meal and made into bread, rather than eaten as a porridge, where the grains would have been eaten whole and found in larger pieces in the colon. But the bread would have been little like modern breads. In order to get bread to rise when yeast is added, the wheat grains must contain a high level of gluten, which lends the dough a durable elasticity and therefore holds the pockets of air. Einkorn has low levels of gluten, so the bread made with it was probably hard, somewhat like a cracker, and rather tough on the teeth.

Using an electron microscope Oeggl also spotted tiny particles of charcoal attached to the bran, probably remnants of the baking process on a hot rock, or next to a fire. In addition to the einkorn, the cells of at least one other plant, possibly some herb, were present in the sample, and Oeggl concluded that they, too, had been part of his meal. He also found a tiny muscle fiber and a burned bit of bone, evidence that the Iceman might also have eaten a meat. What kind of meat Oeggl cannot yet say, nor can he determine how much of the meal the sample represented.

Not everything passing through the Iceman’s gut had been swallowed intentionally, or was even desirable. Oeggl also found the eggs of the human whipworm. Many people alive today who do not live in areas with flush toilets also carry the worm, which can cause unpleasant symptoms like stomach ache and diarrhea, or even lead to malnutrition. The scientists have no way of knowing whether the Iceman had any such complaints.

Scientists may never know what prompted the Iceman to leave the relatively hospitable valley with no water or food to speak of

The sample also contained many different varieties of pollen, whose strange and beautiful forms Oeggl saw under the electron microscope. Though some peoples are known to eat pollen, Oeggl believed that the quantity in his colon was too small to represent a meal. Instead, the pollen accidentally ended up in the man’s stomach because they either had landed in food or water he ingested, or were inhaled and became trapped in saliva which he then swallowed. Scientists had long wondered where the Iceman was coming from and where he was headed, but until the discovery of the pollen inside the corpse, no scientist had any convincing documentation for his last day. But the pollen provided a snapshot of the environment the Iceman was exposed to in the hours before his death.

The majority of the pollen came from the hop hornbeam tree, which grows in a warm environment. As soon as Oeggl recognized it under his microscope lens, he not only knew which side of the mountain the Iceman had been on shortly before his death but also the season in which he died. The hop hornbeam tree blooms between March and June, and because the sperm inside the pollen grain, which normally decays after a short exposure to air or water, was still intact, Oeggl believed it had to have been absorbed relatively soon after its release from the tree. The nearest stands of that tree could have grown to the south of the Hauslabjoch, at least five or six hours away by foot. The high valleys to the north are just too cold to sustain it.

The pollen of this particular tree was, therefore, one key to understanding the Iceman’s last hours. It meant that the Iceman was almost certainly in the valley within half a day of his death. Previously scientists had speculated that the Iceman had died in the late summer when he was surprised by an early storm while trying to cross the pass.

Oeggl readily acknowledges that scientists may never know what prompted the Iceman to leave the relatively hospitable valley with no water or food to speak of (a single sloe berry was found with his remains) and try to cross the mountain at a time of year when several feet of snow easily could have obscured the topography of the steep and rocky Alpine ridge. But his own interest in the Iceman’s demise is not yet exhausted. He expects that his meticulous analysis of the botanical and archaeological material recovered from the bottom of the shallow in which the man died will soon reveal more details about the circumstances of the Iceman’s death.

This feature originally appeared on the site for the NOVA program Ice Mummies.”

Although not shown in this excerpt, the Iceman did show signs of modern day disease in his bones. it was evident mostly around his joints in the form of arthritis. This arthritis is directly due to his diet of einkorn wheat. As it does now, in glycating all cholesterol it comes in contact with causing arthritis, it did so then. It just did it slower, due to the indigestibility of the einkorn wheat, but it occurred never-the-less.

The damage it did at that time was much less than what it does now, due to the lack of fiber it has in today’s strains of wheat, mostly the bread wheat made of Triticum aestivum, and spelt, durum, and emmer, as well. Even though arthritis seldom kills its victim, the damage it does doesn’t go away, ever. It’s stuck to you like paint on a wall and you can’t scrape it off. Most wheat today has more gluten protein than its ever had in its history, making it gluier and stickier, which make it that much more dangerous, as this is what builds up the plaque in your system and you already know what damage plaque does.

Perhaps the biggest question this brings up is, with all of this information available for this many years, why hasn’t the FDA warned us that this food has these capabilities to do this kind of damage to the human body. Should the public be able to make an informed decision as to whether or not to continue to eat this food? Or should the FDA continue to ignore the evidence and fail to even let the public know what this food does? The question I want to ask, was there outside influence in their decision to not expose this information?

Someone is trying to hide this information. They’re want to leave it up to an uneducated public to automatically know what these studies have shown. In whose best interest would it be to keep this information hidden? Whose business would hurt the most if bread and corn and wheat products all of a sudden became taboo?  The grain industry?  Monsanto? The more I look into this, the more it spells out cover-up and because this is how the FDA treats this, it instills a lot of fear in me as to how healthy the rest of our food supply is.

The FDA has to know of the damage these grains do to the body when ingested, so why do they allow these industries continue to peddle their wares as if they’re healthy?

The Iowa Corn Fed Beef Ruse

Food, Inc. is a 2008 American documentary film directed by filmmaker Robert Kenner.[4] The Academy Award-nominated film examines corporate farming in the United States, concluding that agribusiness produces food that is unhealthy, in a way that is environmentally harmful and abusive of both animals and employees. The film is narrated by Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser.[5][6]

The film received positive responses and was nominated for several awards, including the Academy Award and the Independent Spirit Awards in 2009, both for Best Documentary Feature.

The film’s first segment examines the industrial production of meat (chicken, beef, and pork), calling it inhumane and economically and environmentally unsustainable. The second segment looks at the industrial production of grains and vegetables (primarily corn and soy beans), again labeling this economically and environmentally unsustainable. The film’s third and final segment is about the economic and legal power, such as food labeling regulations, of the major food companies, the profits of which are based on supplying cheap but contaminated food, the heavy use of petroleum-based chemicals (largely pesticides and fertilizers), and the promotion of unhealthy food consumption habits by the American public.[4][7] It shows companies like Wal-Mart transitioning towards organic foods as that industry is booming in the recent health movement.

Monsanto, the USDA and the FDA

Food, Inc is an eye-opening documentary that deals with the agricultural industry’s influence in the USDA and the FDA, concentrating on the meat packing industry’s influence. In 2008 the Chief of Staff for the USDA was a former chief lobbyist for the beef industry. The head of the FDA was a former executive vice president for the national food processors Association. A majority of the staff at both the FDA and the USDA came from Monsanto or its subsidiaries, posing clear conflicts of interests when it comes to protecting consumers. These industries of Monsanto, the USDA and the FDA are responsible for more death and disease than all violence, which includes war and crime, as well as automobile accidents, all other addictions, including heroin, amphetamines and alcohol.

These industries and agencies are directly responsible for over 43,000,000 deaths each and every year.  That total continues to climb and it will continue until everyone decides that it’s time for a cure.

Decisions have been made in the past that clearly benefited industry while presenting clear dangers to humans. By not only allowing contaminated the food with worthless nutrition values or food contaminated by bacteria to sneak into our food supply but by polluting our rivers and lakes in the process as well, with contaminated groundwater from runoff from chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

This is just a taste of how unsustainable this is and it all starts with the grain industry, and our insatiable appetites for high sugar food, which is all forced upon us by this industry, the corn producers, wheat growers, and the crop seed companies owned by Monsanto, Novartis, Syngenta, Bayer et al.. Because their food requires treatment with medications that this industry controls, they have full control over what happens inside your body when you bend to their will and buy their products.

The grain industry in Iowa promoted the Iowa corn-fed beef, to sell more corn, their largest industry. This had multiple, unforeseen consequences that not only damaged our food supply, but it polluted our resources more than what could have ever been foreseen. Because of our propensity to feed our addiction to sugar, the products that this industry has devised to get us to eat more of their junk food, are putting everyone who is suckered into this cycle, in the hospital with serious disorders. These disorders range from arthritis to cancer to HBP to CVDs and much more.

This is clearly a case where this self-policing doesn’t work. It’s killing Americans right now because it doesn’t. Evidence can be seen in the number of heart disease deaths, cancer deaths, Alzheimer’s deaths, not to mention all the pain, discomfort, and drug abuse caused by the pain. Although this is nice for the profits Monsanto, Syngenta and Bayer who also make drugs that treat the diseases there foods cause, it’s leading our country down a path of destruction that we’ll never recover from if we keep eating the food they advertise. They are playing on the addiction that they’ve inflicted upon the American people as well as the world to pad their profits and boost the influence.

This industry makes sure that sugar gets into baby food, to make sure that every baby who eats it becomes addicted to it, making them lifetime users of their poison. This unwilling addiction to sugar has brought this industry to a level of evil that’s never been seen in any industry. This industry is so intent on keeping us addicted to its lure, simply to increase your profits, that they are now responsible for over 65,753 deaths, worldwide daily. Yes, I said 65,753 deaths daily. If this doesn’t bother you, then you have no conscience. Yes, this is something to be appalled about and appalled I am and you should be too. This is simply more proof that it’s time for a cure.

50,000 food safety inspections in 1972 to just over nine thousand of them in 2008, the FDA is failing us big time. This is directly related to departmental cutbacks reducing the number of agents available to do the inspections. This is how conservative politicians think this industry and all other industries should police themselves. It would be nice if corporate America but was concerned about more than just their profits, but unfortunately the bottom line is what wins here and the bottom line is greed.

If the FDA can allow a food this dangerous through its monitoring, I’m afraid to even think about what else has snuck through?  The beef industry is already displayed their contempt for regulation through the mass production of beef that their industry is gone last 50 years

Couldn’t this dispute, at least, be closed that wheat can kill? What I would rather ask, was there outside influence in their decision to not issue any warnings? It was recently revealed that the sugar industry took steps to cover up the reports of damage that their food offered, so why wouldn’t it make sense that this closely related industry, the grain industry, would take those same steps to cover up the same information about what their foods provided?

Was this another case of the industry policing itself and its watchdog, as well? Does this make a solid argument for self-policing for corporate entities instead of government regulations? Our health is at stake here and we’ve allowed the FDA to escape judgment. That in my estimation is borderline criminal. 2893 deaths nationally, each day from CVDs, cancer, and Alzheimer disease combined. All three of these disorders are directly due to ECC, excessive carbohydrate consumption, which can be controlled. That’s enough people to wipe out 4 towns, the same size I grew up in. That’s unconscionable and we let it happen. Is that a shame on us for allowing it to happen?

We have direct control of these disorders. We don’t have to let this continue, but we do, simply to feed our addiction. We have a societal addiction to glucose because it’s not just sugar, it’s what breaks down to glucose, and that includes not only sugar but all carbohydrates that break down to their most basic molecule, glucose. It’s our addiction to this glucose that clouds our judgment, masks our emotions, and controls our desires by gumming up the neurons in our brains every time we eat this food. This is what exactly makes it addictive and hands total control over to the glucose, every time we eat it.

Yes, we do have full control over this, and we can stop it, but we have to stop the celebration of our addiction, to stop the addiction itself. To do that we need to instill taxes on the damage it’s doing when you eat this food. It’s time to hit abusers in the pocket book where it hurts the most. This has been successful with cigarettes, why can’t we make it just as successful with glucose? Why can’t we add a glucose tax to sugary drinks and bread and pasta products? These are the products that do the most damage, outside of alcohol which already has its own tax. Why shouldn’t these products have a tax also? When people start to see the real expense in their pocketbooks, they can then equate that expense to the real expense of the devastating effects this food has, that leads to cancer, heart disease, diabetes and dementia. This may be the only manner in which this addiction can be curbed.

Our Celebration of Our Addiction to Sugar and the Price We Pay For It.

Our Celebration of Our Addiction to Sugar and the Price We Pay For It.

It’s not hard to see how much you enjoy celebrating your addiction to carbs. It’s displayed in everything that’s said and done, in all aspects of the food industry. It’s boldly advertised everywhere you go. Soon after following this celebration of addiction that you love to express, comes a parade of drugs that you’ll be taking to treat all of the symptoms that come from succumbing to your addiction. This simple equation displays the need that we have to curb the influence of the grain and pharmaceutical industry on our health.

Our Addiction is Displayed Everywhere

Enjoy Coca Cola SignFailure to control this influence will not only lead more disease and illness but more to greater health costs overall. How Drink Coca Cola Signare we ever going to learn to live healthily and kick this habit, before it destroys our society? How are we ever going to put an end to diabetes? Or an end to Alzheimer’s disease? Or cancer? Or heart disease? Or arthritis? Or hypertension? Hyperlipidemia? High Cholesterol? I would like to show just how our celebration of addiction to sugar is not only destroying our individual lives, it has the possibility of destroying our entire civilization, if we don’t curb its influence.

An Addiction That Leads to More Addictions

bakery-bread-pastry-badges-labels-25965021

I intend to show you how this industry hooks you in the first place, how they keep you hooked so in the future you’re forced to buy into their drug habit. This drug habit involves NSAIDS (aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Aleve), anti-inflammatories, antacids, anti-gas and bloating, (Pepto Bismol, Gaviscon, Alka Seltzer) and we’re just starting with the OCDs. For prescription medicine, we’re looking at all opioids (Oxycontin, Oxycodone, Vicodin, Percocet), which again are addictive.  More prescription NSAIDS like Celebrex, Relafen, Relifex, and Gambaran. We know that by the existing opioid abuse epidemic how dangerous these drugs are. Do you think this happened by chance?

The Worst Consequence of Carbs

Other prescription medicines that you’re doomed to need if you continue your carbohydrate consumption (especially for those who allow ECC to control them), includes but are not limited to statins, vasoactive agents, fibrates, CETP Inhibitors, and niacin, just for starters. Statins are, by far, the far worst of these medications.

After spending 15 years giving care to and for seniors, I have seen the ravages statin drugs have taken on their bodies. They slowly rob their users from their mental faculties, then their muscles, then their lives. What it takes away from its users is in no way replaced by the treatment it offers. They are nothing more than invitations to a need to take more and more drugs. It seems that the drug industry has found ways to make you buy more of their wares.

This industry promotes that high cholesterol has something to do with heart disease, which couldn’t be further from the truth and that high cholesterol is dangerous. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Cholesterol isn’t the problem. Cholesterol is healthy. Your body has to use it to stay alive. Taking cholesterol away from your body only leads to more medication. I can see where this would benefit the drug industry.

Cholesterol, your body’s fuel

High cholesterol isn’t a heart problem. It’s a diet problem. Your diet is responsible for your high cholesterol. Your major food source is your primary source of cholesterol and that is where the problem begins. Your high carbohydrate diet produces cholesterol in your body that is not clean cholesterol, meaning that it is dirty fuel, as cholesterol is your body’s fuel. This is cholesterol you don’t need. You need clean cholesterol that’s been produced by fat. That is what powers our bodies.

Cholesterol is your body’s fuel source. It’s cholesterol that enters the cell to be used for fuel, so what’s important is the kind of cholesterol that your body uses. Is it clean or dirty cholesterol? Cholesterol from carbohydrates is a dirty sticky fuel due to the fact that it’s made from a substance that’s basically glue. This cholesterol comes from a sticky, icky, gooey, gluey substance, sugar and its residue after it’s burned is just as sticky. This is what leads to plaque, the basis of almost all cancers, heart diseases and all dementias.

I’ve only talked about heart medications so far, I haven’t even touched on cancer medication or cholesterol medication (many of which are related to heart medications like statins), nor have I covered other prescription medication for arthritis, high blood pressure, and memory loss. The list goes on and on. What a quagmire this has turned out to be. But I’m going to try to make some sense out of this quagmire, so that we’re left with just a small puzzle leaving you wondering, like me, why?

I’ve already proven how the discontinuance of these foods leads only to better health and how continued consumption of these foods, only leads to a path of illness and disease. What I don’t know, did this industry know what these foods do from the studies that have come out over the last 70+ years? Or did they remain electively ignorant of the reports? Or did they influence the cover-up of these reports? With as many reports that have come out, I seriously doubt it. There are just so many of them (701) that it’s easy to miss most of them. Later I’ll show you how this industry has had its problems in the courts. Some of it is not pretty.

I’ll list just a few of the studies that have shown this damage going back over 70 years. The earliest study I found in 701 studies done over the years, was completed in 1939. I looked through page after page of studies that started in the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s. They seem to grow in number as time goes on. Studies have exploded since the turn of this century, as more and more people are starting to recognize the true dangers this food imposes on its consumers. Yet the majority of the addicted choose to remain ignorant to it dangers, as they’re impotent in ignoring its lures. They are all controlled by their hormones which are controlling their emotions. This is a common trait of carbolism. The addicted have little to no choice in the matter. The need to feed the addiction is no less than that of any other addiction, which forces the addicted to continue to feed the addiction. It’s the way addiction works, it’s the way carbolism works.

Celebration of sugar addiction

We’re inundated with the commercialism of addiction on a daily basis. You see advertising for these foods and drinks everywhere. How many snack food companies are there? How many cereal companies are there? How many soft drink companies are there? How many beer and spirits companies are there? How many commercials do you see each day from these industries? All of those commercials are luring you into their web of addiction. The grain industry has found ways to infect our society, like cockroaches

We all know who profits from this today, but have you ever connected that with who is going to profit from it 10, 20, 30 years from now, the pharmaceutical industry? It seems that the grain industry’s intent is to do nothing more than to fuel the drug industry. Whether it is their intent, it is and has been the result. How long it continues to be, depends on how long we continue to allow our addictions to exist.

Drug companies, right now, are foaming at the mouth for all the business the food industry has sent them. (Pun intended.) Nobody is interested in breaking this addiction. What more could they ask for, a captive audience, all set up to need what they need to feed your addiction at a cost that they set. You get to pay it or deal with your pain. Many times you have to pay it, just to stay alive. Do you wonder why medical costs keep going up or why insurance costs so much? If everyone would stop buying into this ruse and found their cure, what would happen to the pharmaceutical industry? A huge drop in demand for their drugs would lower the price for the drugs as well as the treatments. It’s not hard to see the benefit that would have.

The underlying cause of sugar addiction

First off, let’s define it. Dictionary.com defines addiction;   Noun, the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming,  as narcotics,  to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.-

Wikipedia defines Addiction is a medical condition characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences.”

I personally define addiction as a compulsion to consume a substance that the body craves but doesn’t need because it actually harms the body. This definition rings true for heroin and opioids, sugar and alcohol, cigarettes and tobacco, the three most abused substances in the civilized algorithm, although not in that order. The worst of these addictions is that of sugar and alcohol, with sugar being by far, the meanest and vilest scourge ever committed upon the human race.

Baby FormulasIt starts with the placement of sugar and carbs in the baby food that’s sold throughout the industry. It’s obvious to me why they put it in baby food.  That’s because it’s so palatable and goes down so easy making the food more palatable so babies would be less likely to not consume it. What baby doesn’t love the taste of sugar? This taste for sugar soon turns into an addiction requiring it be fed to the body, every other hour or so. Whether or not this was the intended consequences of the marketing of this food, this consequence has become America’s newest death sentence. By showing how this addiction affects the body in Carbs; The Newly Discovered Death Sentencethe evidence proves how dangerous this food is to human physiology. Yet we continue to celebrate our addiction to it simply to enhance profits. Profits for the Grain industry as well as the drug industry are driven by our insatiable appetites for these foods, which is driven by their unending advertising.

The major reason this addiction continues is due to the manner in which it is and has been promoted. The desire to create more and more ways and forms to entice everyone to eat and drink more of this deadly food is nothing short of astounding.  It continues to amaze me how inventive we are at finding ways to kill ourselves with our own taste buds. Studies have been done, books have been written, the public has been warned, but it continues to happen. Every time I turn around I see another new way to kill ourselves in another appealing commercial. All this advertising encouraging us to consume more and more of their blood glucose raising, diabetes causing, HBP causing, dementia-causing foods is the driving force of this addiction and consequent expense.

woman-eats-bag-doritosA carbohydrate diet requires that you feed it almost on an hourly basis. A ketogenic diet, on the other hand, allows you to go all day without eating much of anything. Here’s the secret, carboholics don’t like to go hungry. They do almost anything they can to not go hungry. Those on a ketogenic diet, don’t mind going hungry. Actually, to us, it’s not going hungry. It’s simply going without eating. The hunger doesn’t exist as much, as the cycle of addiction has been broken. We feel the hunger pangs and many times, welcome them because we know that is where we build our better health. We do this by building Ghrelin throughout our systems because we know that Ghrelin works to build our immunity as well as making us a little smarter by increasing our brain power, through the addition of BDNF in our brains. Remember BDNF is that stuff that’s the foundation of new brain cells. Remember the Nrf2, that ramps up the production of your anti-oxidants? Those are both benefits of Ghrelin in your system.

Your celebration of your addiction to this sugar is the industry’s celebration of profits, both in the food, they sell us and the drugs we buy to relieve the pain. For them, it’s a win-win situation. For the public who buys into this, it’s a no-win situation. This is the prescription for future medications if you’re in your teen and twenties. In your thirties, you’ll start buying their headache and stomach ache medication. In your forties, it’ll become insulin or anti-diabetes medication, then in your 50’s and 60’s and beyond, pick your poison, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease. Anyone or all of these are going to hit you when you least expect it. I know. I’ve experienced it. I pray that you heed my words and don’t experience it yourselves.

Targeted Advertising

coke & Pepsi cansAlmost everything I see advertised on channels marketing to younger viewers is encouraging everyone to buy more soda, energy drinks (most of which are laden with sugar), snack chips and cereals. Then when you’re a few years older the ads are aimed at selling you crackers and pastas. Then  into your 40’s, 50’s and 60’s the ads are all aimed at selling you treatments and drugs for all the diseases and illnesses that your lifetime of consumption has brought you, drugs for diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, dementia, HBP, high cholesterol, etc, etc, etc. How long do I need to go on? Did I mention headaches or stomach aches?

When I watch programming on TV appealing to older viewers, like news broadcasts, I’m inundated with the commercials they show for drugs to treat heart disease (for there is no cure, only treatment), to treat cancer (again no cure), diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes and obesity. Drug companies are doing their best to sell their drugs to us to treat (not cure) us, for the illness and pain that they cause. And we buy it. We buy into it big time. We’ve bought into it our entire lives. The biggest problem here is most people are still buying into it. And they’re buying into it in massive quantities, evidenced by to pandemics of obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, HBP, etc, etc. What’s being spent now, not just on snacks and beverages, but on staples like flour and sugar, pasta and cereal will be tripled, quadrupled, quintupled and even more, in payments to the pharmaceutical companies in the future, after your done paying the price for the damage all your years of consumption will cause.  The only way to getting as close to a cure as you can is to give them up as completely as possible, otherwise, a continuance will only incur the need for drugs.

The drugs they’ll be pushing on you, for heart disease or cancer, or even just for your headaches and stomach aches will be an array of side effect causing chemicals that will ultimately make it necessary for you to purchase more of their drugs to counteract the side effects of the drugs you’ve been taking for your treatment. You see proof of this everywhere. I experienced it myself when I was on 12 different medications just to treat an underlying chronic pain problem. I had to take diuretics for my high blood pressure, anti-depressants because “they worked on the same receptors in the brain that the pain used”, NSAIDS for the headaches I always used to get, opioids for the chronic pain I live with from the car accident. The diuretics were for my high blood pressure caused by my pain, or so I thought. After I quit the bread, the pain subsided. Maybe not completely, but enough to encourage me to quit all grains. When it subsided, even more, I decided to quit all carbs. My biggest benefit was the loss of my high blood pressure along with 30 lbs of weight.

When they advertise new drugs, the precautions and side effects of the drugs they want to sell you, take up more of the commercials, they show, than the explanations of their benefits. I have to wonder where the regulation is. Is it for the consumer (which it’s supposed to be) or is this regulation for the benefit of the industry? How can drugs with that many precautions and side effects still be approved for sale? It appears to me that this industry has the FDA under their spell.

Which does it appear to be, to you? This industry is still allowed to market foods of disease and death while marketing treatments for those diseases and illnesses. Who knew that these industries are related? Before I started this, I didn’t. I had to uncover this information, so I’ll show you how all this is connected and it’s connected to take your money. Their manner of taking your money is clearly hazardous to your health. This is something you need to know because nothing is more important than your health.

The industry that feeds you sugar, prescription-drugs-assortment-bottles-containing-bottle-foreground-open-pills-spilled-out-onto-black-surface-36701776pills-3489144

forces you to buy their sister industry’s drugs.


The food industry which also includes the grain industry, which includes the crop seed industry that provides the farmers with the seed they need to grow the grains that they sell us to put on our tables for us to eat, is related to the pharmaceutical industry that makes all the drugs for all the diseases that these foods create. My question is how could we allow an industry responsible for our food, be also responsible for the diseases their food creates?

What we’ve allowed these related industries to do, in a nutshell, is drain our wallets at the grocery store by influencing us to buy their sodas, fruit drinks, snack foods, pastas, breads, cereals and crackers, while draining our wallets again at the pharmacy to buy their drugs that treat the symptoms of the diseases their food is responsible for.

  1. For the food, we’re sold through their marketing….(and their advertising is pure magic to see and it’s so easy to buy into). Their product tastes better than anything in the world. How much more could you ask for than a worldwide customer base that’s addicted to your wares? Because it’s addictive (like tobacco), you only have to make it more appealing than that of its competitors, of which it has plenty because the addiction is so strong. That makes it more deadly than heroin, simply because it’s as prevalent as water. In some places, more prevalent.
  2. We also get to pay their associates for the drugs we need to combat the diseases that their food has given us. And pay them we do. We’ll pay them anything to get out of the pain that we’ve been inflicted with, from eating the food they so happily sold to us. We just don’t connect that pain we feel with the food we’ve grown up with. But it is connected. It’s connected in a big way. They first connected themselves toward the end of the 20th century with mergers and acquisitions bringing chemical, pharmaceutical and crop seed companies under one roof.

The Perfect Sugar Ruse

This disturbs me and it disturbs me big-time.  The company that produces the crop seed for the food I’m supposedly going to eat is the same pharmaceutical company that makes drugs for the illnesses and diseases this food is responsible for? If it legal? It isn’t illegal. it happens and you buy into it.

This industry is so intent on keeping us addicted that sugar or corn syrup is quite often the #1 or #2 ingredient in baby food, meaning that if you’re not one of the few that are raised on their mother’s milk and had to grow up on baby food, you’re condemned to an addiction that our grain and pharmaceutical industry has imposed upon you.

It’s not surprising that we’ve ignored this addiction for as long as we’ve had it. We’ve ignored it because we grew up with it. Everyone has it, so as far as everyone is concerned, there is no addiction. After all, how can you be addicted to something that you need to survive? How can you live without something that you need to survive? That’s where the question lies, in whether or not, it’s something you need to survive. Do you really need this food or can you live without it? You can live without it and you should live without it. To do this, you make your body not need it. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? It is simple, it just isn’t easy. This is one case where simple is not easy.

We’ve made it so easy for this industry to increase our addiction that we look forward to finding new ways to inflict more harm on our bodies. And this industry is more than happy to oblige us with their new creations to further our addiction. It’s a win-win situation for them. They couldn’t ask for anything more. We’re paying one side for what we eat the other side for drugs. Monsanto does the best at this.

Monsanto’s involvement

monsanto-evil-seed-corporate-greed-sign-asheville-north-carolina-usa-may-anti-accusing-being-gmo-protest-41136878According to Wikipedia; “Monsanto scientists were among the first to genetically modify a plant cell, publishing their results in 1983;[3] five years later, the company conducted the first field tests of genetically engineered crops. Increasing involvement in agricultural biotechnology R&D in general dates from the installment of Richard Mahoney as Monsanto’s CEO in 1983.[12] This involvement increased under the leadership of Robert Shapiro, appointed CEO in 1995, leading ultimately to divestment of product lines unrelated to agriculture.[12]This divestment of product lines is their introduction into pharmaceuticals. Did they know at this time, what their food was doing to their consumers? Had they seen any of the reports that started coming out in 1939 and continued until today? Are they aware of any of them now? It appears not, or they’re choosing to be electively ignorant. I think it’s the latter. Their history tells us it’s the latter.

From Wikipedia; “In 1985, Monsanto acquired G. D. Searle & Company, a life sciences company focusing on pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and animal health. In 1993, Monsanto’s Searle division filed a patent application for Celebrex,[39][40] which in 1998 became the first selectiveCOX‑2 inhibitor to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[41]Celebrex became a blockbuster drug and was often mentioned as a key reason for Pfizer‘s acquisition of Monsanto’s pharmaceutical business in 2002.[42] Celebrex and arthritis, did they know the connection? What causes arthritis? Was this industry aware of the studies that started coming out in the 50’s and 60’s about the dangers of their product?

“In 1996, Monsanto purchased Agracetus, the biotechnology company that had generated the first transgenic varieties of cotton, soybeans, peanuts, and other crops, and from which Monsanto had already been licensing technology since 1991.[44]Monsanto first entered the maize seed business when it purchased 40% of DEKALB in 1996; it purchased the remainder of the corporation in 1998.[45] In 1998 Monsanto purchased Cargill‘s international seed business, which gave it access to sales and distribution facilities in 51 countries.[45] In 2005, it finalized the purchase of Seminis Inc, a leading global vegetable and fruit seed company, for $1.4 billion.[46] This made it the world’s largest conventional seed company at the time. Again, I have to wonder if they had seen the studies of what their products were doing to their consumers?

“In 2007, Monsanto and BASF announced a long-term agreement to cooperate in the research, development, and marketing of new plant biotechnology products.[47][48]” “Through a series of transactions, the Monsanto that existed from 1901 to 2000 and the current Monsanto are legally two distinct corporations. Although they share the same name and corporate headquarters, many of the same executives and other employees, and responsibility for liabilities arising out of activities in the industrial chemical business, the agricultural chemicals business is the only segment carried forward from the pre-1997 Monsanto Company to the current Monsanto Company. This was accomplished beginning in the 1980s:

  • 1985: Monsanto purchased D. Searle & Company for $2.7 billion in cash.[49][50] In this merger, Searle’s aspartame business became a separate Monsanto subsidiary, the NutraSweet Company. CEO of NutraSweet, Robert B. Shapiro, served as CEO of Monsanto from 1995 to 2001.[51]
  • 1996: Monsanto acquiredAgracetus, a majority interest in Calgene, creators of the Flavr Savr tomato, and 40% of DeKalb Genetics Corporation. It purchased the remainder of DeKalb in 1998.[52][53]
  • 1997: Monsanto spun off its industrial chemical and fiber divisions intoSolutia[12][54]In January, Monsanto announced the purchase of Holden’s Foundations Seeds, a privately held seed business. By acquiring Holden’s, Monsanto became the biggest American producer of foundation corn, the parent seed from which hybrids are made.[55] The combined purchase price was $925 million. Also, in April, Monsanto purchased the remaining shares of Calgene.
  • 1999: Monsanto sold off NutraSweet Co.[12]In December, Monsanto merged with Pharmacia & Upjohn,[12] and the agricultural division became a wholly owned subsidiary of the “new” Pharmacia; the medical research divisions of Monsanto, which included products such as Celebrex, were rolled into Pharmacia.[56]
  • 2000 (October): Pharmacia spun off its Monsanto subsidiary into a new company,[12]the “new Monsanto”.[57]Monsanto agreed to indemnify Pharmacia against any liabilities that might be incurred from judgments against Solutia. As a result, the new Monsanto continues to be a party to numerous lawsuits that relate to operations of the old Monsanto. Pharmacia was bought by Pfizer in a deal announced in 2002 and completed in 2003.[58][59])
  • 2005: Monsanto acquired Emergent Genetics and its Stoneville and NexGen cotton brands. Emergent was the third largest U.S. cotton seed company, with about 12 percent of the U.S. market. Monsanto’s goal was to obtain “a strategic cotton germplasm and traits platform.”[60]The vegetable seed producer Seminis was purchased for $1.4 billion.[61]
  • 2007: In June, Monsanto purchasedDelta & Pine Land Company, a major cotton seed breeder, for $1.5 billion.[62] As a condition for approval from the Department of Justice, Monsanto was obligated to divest its Stoneville cotton business, which it sold to Bayer, and to divest its NexGen cotton business, which it sold to Americot.[63]Monsanto also exited the pig breeding business by selling Monsanto Choice Genetics to Newsham Genetics LC in November, divesting itself of “any and all swine-related patents, patent applications, and all other intellectual property”.[64]:108
  • 2008: Monsanto purchased the Dutch seed company, De Ruiter Seeds for €546 million,[65] and sold its POSILAC bovine somatotropin brand and related business to Elanco Animal Health, a division of Eli Lilly in August for $300 million plus “additional contingent consideration”.[66]
  • 2012: Monsanto purchased for $210 million Precision Planting Inc., a company that produced computer hardware and software designed to enable farmers to increase yield and productivity through more accurate planting.[67]
  • 2013: Monsanto purchased San Francisco-basedClimate Corp for $930 million.[68]Climate Corp. makes more accurate local weather forecasts for farmers based on data modelling and historical data; if the forecasts were wrong, the farmer was recompensed.[69]
  • 2015 Monsanto tried to buy Syngenta for US$46.5 billion but failed.[70]
  • 2016Bayer offered to buy Monsanto for US$62 billion.[71]

Monsanto’s involvement in the pharmaceutical industry and the AgroSciences has grown to monopolistic proportions.  It not only controls

It’s not just crop seed that they manufacture; they also are responsible for the chemicals sprayed on the crops grown from their seed. Since it’s been genetically modified to withstand the effects of their herbicide, roundup, I’ve always wondered how much of those chemicals get into our food through this process. Roundup is a glyphosate herbicide, meaning that it’s an enzyme inhibitor, that’s not good for human health.  For me, it’s just not healthy enough, especially for the problems I already live with. More chemicals in my body is not what I need to keep it healthy. You may want to chance it, but pesticides and herbicides in our diet have been linked to bladder cancer. Why would I want to chance that, just for the taste of something sweet or salty? You only think you’re craving the salt, when in all actuality, you’re craving the carbs that come with the salt. The salt isn’t addictive, the carbs are. Evidenced below is just a little of Monsanto’s bio-chemical industry.

Because they’re so good at manufacturing the chemicals for the herbicides and pesticides, they can manufacture GMO seed that is resistant to these chemicals. Though the plant may be resistant to the chemicals, does that mean that your body is? I don’t think so.

How glyphosate-based herbicides & GM seed combine to make consumption of grains dangerous.

Again according to Wikipedia; “Monsanto chemist John E. Franz repurposed the chemical glyphosate as a systemic herbicide in 1970.[89] Monsanto’s last commercially relevant United States patent on glyphosate expired in 2000, and since then glyphosate has been marketed in the United States and worldwide by many agrochemical companies, in different solution strengths and with various adjuvants, under dozens of trade names.[90][91][92][93] As of 2009, sales of glyphosate represented about 10% of Monsanto’s revenue due to competition from other producers of other glyphosate-based herbicides;[94] their Roundup products (which include GM seeds) represented about half of Monsanto’s gross margin.[95]

Glyphosate is an enzyme inhibitor, used not only in herbicides but also in many drugs. They allow the drug to be more specific to the treatment and incur fewer side effects, for the patient. Don’t think that ingestion of Glyphosate now through your grain intake will prevent side effects of medications in the future. I can virtually guarantee that it won’t.

biplane-crop-duster-spraying-farm-field-14911079Wikipedia says about glyphosate; “Glyphosate is absorbed through foliage, and minimally through roots,[6][7][8] and transported to growing points. It inhibits a plant enzyme involved in the synthesis of three aromatic amino acids: tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine. Therefore, it is effective only on actively growing plants and is not effective as a pre-emergence herbicide. An increasing number of crops have been genetically engineered to be tolerant of glyphosate (e.g. Roundup Ready soybean, the first Roundup Ready crop, also created by Monsanto) which allows farmers to use glyphosate as a postemergence herbicide against weeds. The development of glyphosate resistance in weed species is emerging as a costly problem. While glyphosate and formulations such as Roundup have been approved by regulatory bodies worldwide, concerns about their effects on humans and the environment persist.[5][9]

“Many regulatory and scholarly reviews have evaluated the relative toxicity of glyphosate as an herbicide. The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment toxicology review in 2013 found that “the available data is contradictory and far from being convincing” with regard to correlations between exposure to glyphosate formulations and risk of various cancers, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).[10]

A 2014 review article reported a significant association between B-cell lymphoma and glyphosate occupational exposure.[11] In March 2015 the World Health Organization‘s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic in humans” (category 2A) based on epidemiological studies, animal studies, and in vitro studies.[9][12][13] However in 2016 a joint meeting of the United Nations (FAO) Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues in Food and the Environment and the World Health Organization (WHO) Core Assessment Group on Pesticide Residues (JMPR) concluded that based on the available evidence “glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans from exposure through the diet”.[86]

Are you glyphosate-resistant? Can your body withstand the changes that glyphosate forces upon your body every time you have a sandwich? With Glyphosate being coated on the wheat that your bread is made from, how can you guarantee that none of it is in your body? How can you guarantee that it’s not affecting your physiology? Can you guarantee that it’s not affecting the actions of enzymes in your body that regulate your health? What guarantees do you have that this won’t initiate more trips to your doctor?

Acetylcholine is an important chemical in the body that’s important for brain function and muscle function throughout the body as Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter. For Acetylcholine to act as a neurotransmitter, it needs multiple enzymes that function in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, for Acetylcholine works as a neurotransmitter as well as a neuromodulator.

The body uses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase to help activate muscles by inhibiting the action of  acetylcholine , and if glyphosate herbicides (Roundup weed killer used on more farms than any other weed killer) are enzyme inhibitors, how can the ingestion of grains laden with these herbicides, not affect the function of the enzymes in your body since you consume them every time you eat bread products of any sort?

These Glyphosate herbicides are enzyme inhibitors that have the ability to alter or stop the cell signaling capabilities of enzymes. If they can do this to plants, where is the guarantee that it won’t affect your body? Chances are, they’re going to change how your body operates and in the long run be the precursor to many diseases. It’s crucial for the body’s proper function that the actions of certain enzymes are never altered. Where’s the guarantee that these enzyme-inhibiting herbicides that your wheat has been sprayed with, won’t affect your health? There is none.

According to Wikipedia; “Acetylcholine receptor agonists and antagonists can either have an effect directly on the receptors or exert their effects indirectly, e.g., by affecting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which degrades the receptor ligand. Agonists increase the level of receptor activation, antagonists reduce it.” I would consider an enzyme inhibitor an antagonist as it inhibits enzyme function.

It’s a little clearer to see now, how the altering of how enzymes work, in our bodies can have an effect on our health. I can see how this could come from a diet high in grains because how of much Roundup is sprayed on grain that’s milled into flour. I can also see how this could present a huge gain for the pharmaceutical industry. Is this really the intent of Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, the widest used herbicide on the planet? Or is it just negligence? I have to wonder because of their previous ties with Pharmacia & Upjohn, makers of Celebrex. These are just a few of thousands of enzymes and cell signaling proteins that are affected by this enzyme inhibitor.

I for one would not like to have this inhibitor flowing through by blood mucking up my system. Who knows what enzymes it’s going to inhibit in your body? Fortunately for me, I don’t have to worry about that, as carbs aren’t in my diet. They don’t get a chance to muck up anything in my body anymore, I’ve gone keto and I’m not going back.

It looks to me like Monsanto is trying to lock up not only our digestive problems but the resolve of those digestive problems. They like to persuade you to buy their food products which you are more than happy to do, then they get your money again when you purchase your Celebrex to ease the pain of the arthritis given you by their grains.

It’s not only Monsanto, Bayer has its own interest in the area of crop science, as explained by Wikipedia, “ in 2002, Bayer AG acquired the Dutch seed company Nunhems, which at the time was one of the world’s top five seed companies.[53][54]:270 In 2006, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that Bayer CropScience’s Liberty Link genetically modified rice had contaminated the U.S. rice supply. Shortly after the public learned of the contamination, the E.U. banned imports of U.S. long-grain rice and the futures price plunged. In April 2010, a Lonoke County, Arkansas jury awarded a dozen farmers $48 million. The case is currently on appeal to the Arkansas Supreme Court. On 1 July 2011 Bayer CropScience agreed to a global settlement for up to $750 million.[55] In September 2014, the firm announced plans to invest $1 billion in the United States between 2013 and 2016. A Bayer spokesperson said that the largest investments will be made to expand the production of its herbicide Liberty. Liberty is used to kill weeds which have grown resistant to Monsanto’s product Roundup[56]

Bayer’s involvement

bayer-20901226“Bayer’s four divisions, are related in their concerns to their contribution to our food industry as well as their contribution to the pharmaceutical industry.  Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Bayer Crop Science, Bayer Animal Health, and Bayer Consumer Health are all related to our health. They too like to charge us for the food they market to us, then charge us for medication to treat the symptoms of the diseases that their foods are responsible for. Their divested interests are Lanxess (Bayer Chemicals AG) Diagnostics Division, Diabetes Devices Division, Covestro (Bayer Material Science).

Astra Zenica / Syngenta’s involvement

“Zeneca Agrochemicals was part of AstraZeneca, and formerly of Imperial Chemical Industries. ICI was formed in the UK in 1926. Two years later, work began at the Agricultural Research Station at Jealotts Hill near Bracknell.[9]” “In 2004, Syngenta Seeds purchased Garst, the North American corn and soybean business of Advanta, as well as Golden Harvest Seeds.[10][11] On 5 December 2004, the European Union ended a six-year moratorium when it approved imports of two varieties of genetically modified corn sold by Monsanto and its Swiss rival, Syngenta.[12]

AstraZeneca owned by Syngenta, again is evidence of this industrial control over our lives. Syngenta is a Swiss biotechnology company that operates globally. According to Wikipedia; “Syngenta AG is a global Swiss agribusiness that produces agrochemicals and seeds. As a biotechnology company, it conducts genomic research. It was formed in 2000 by the merger of Novartis Agribusiness and Zeneca Agrochemicals. As of 2014, Syngenta was the world’s largest crop chemical producer, strongest in Europe.[2] As of 2009, it ranked third in seeds and biotechnology sales.[3] Sales in 2015 were approximately US$13.4 billion, over half of which were in emerging markets.[1]

The three agrichemical companies above are the largest in the world, controlling a majority of the foods we eat along with the medications we take. I’ve laid out the evidence of what their foods do to the human body, yet they continue to produce the seed for the crops to make the food they want us to put on our table to eat. They also produce the aspirin everybody takes for the headaches they get from eating their bread.

I’ve said before how convenient we’ve made it for this industry to take our money while slowly, painfully, and expensively killing us. But our money is not the only thing they rob us of. They rob us of our dignity as well, for their food does more than anything else to rob us of our memories. We allow them to do this because none of their foods require warning labels, like that of cigarettes.

We’ve given this industry our lives and souls by bending to their advertising and buying into their game. We allow them to addict us when we’re infants by dumping sugar and corn syrup solids into the baby food we feed our kids. Then we allow them to continue their assault by buying into advertising schemes every Saturday morning with their cereal commercials. To fully hook us they add sugar to this already sugar-laden food simply to make it more palatable.

When an industry does this, how are we supposed to fight the addiction? This makes every American who buys into this behavior a slave to this industry. Slaves make the best captive audience. They have no choice in what they do except to choose their device of demise.

What more do you need than a captive audience to sell your wares to? This is why a Coke at a ballgame costs 3 times more what you can get it for, at the grocery store. At the ballgame, you’re a captive audience. It’s the same when you’re addicted. Every ‘pusher’ knows this and they charge a premium price for it. This is exactly why everyone who remains in this trap makes themselves a slave, captive to the whims of these industries.

The Litigation Game

gallery-thumbnailsYet these industries are tied up with lawsuits in other areas of their agrochemical businesses. For example, Monsanto has fought legal claims of false advertising, as explained again in Wikipedia; “In 1996, the New York Times reported that: “Dennis C. Vacco, the Attorney General of New York, ordered the company to pull ads that said Roundup was “safer than table salt” and “practically nontoxic” to mammals, birds and fish. The company withdrew the spots, but also said that the phrase in question was permissible under E.P.A. guidelines.”

”In 1999, Monsanto was condemned by the UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for making “confusing, misleading, unproven and wrong” claims about its products over the course of a £1 million advertising campaign. The ASA ruled that Monsanto had presented its opinions “as accepted fact” and had published “wrong” and “unproven” scientific claims.[127] Monsanto responded with an apology and claimed it was not intending to deceive and instead “did not take sufficiently into account the difference in culture between the UK and the USA in the way some of this information was presented.”[128][129]

“In 2001, French environmental and consumer rights campaigners brought a case against Monsanto for misleading the public about the environmental impact of its herbicide Roundup, on the basis that glyphosate, Roundup’s main ingredient, is classed as “dangerous for the environment” and “toxic for aquatic organisms” by the European Union. Monsanto’s advertising for Roundup had presented it as biodegradable and as leaving the soil clean after use. In 2007, Monsanto was convicted of false advertising and was fined 15,000 Euros. Monsanto’s French distributor Scotts France was also fined 15,000 Euros. Both defendants were ordered to pay damages of 5,000 Euros to the Brittany Water and Rivers Association and 3,000 euros to the CLCV (Consommation Logement Cadre de vie), one of the two main general consumer associations in France.[130] Monsanto appealed and the court upheld the verdict; Monsanto appealed again to the French Supreme Court, and in 2009 it also upheld the verdict.[131]

“In August 2012, a Brazilian Regional Federal Court ordered Monsanto to pay a $250,000 fine for false advertising. In 2004, advertising that related to the use of GM soya seed, and the herbicide glyphosate used in its cultivation, claimed it was beneficial to the conservation of the environment. The federal prosecutor maintained that Monsanto misrepresented the amount of herbicide required and stated that “there is no scientific certainty that soybeans marketed by Monsanto use less herbicide.” The presiding judge condemned Monsanto and called the advertisement “abusive and misleading propaganda.” The prosecutor held that the goal of the advertising was to prepare the market for the purchase of genetically modified soybean seed (sale of which was then banned) and the herbicide used on it, at a time when the approval of a Brazilian Biosafety Law, enacted in 2005, was being discussed in the country.[132][133]

“In March 2014 the South African Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) upheld a complaint, made by the African Centre for Biosafety, that Monsanto had made “unsubstantiated” claims about genetically modified crops in its radio advertisements, and ordered that these adverts be pulled.[134] In March 2015 after considering further documentation from Monsanto, the ASA reversed its ruling.”

“In 2009, Monsanto came under scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Justice, which began investigating whether the company’s activities in the soybean markets were breaking anti-trust rules.[105][106] In 2010, the Department of Justice created a website through which comments on “Agriculture and Antitrust Enforcement Issues in Our 21st Century Economy” could be submitted; over 15,000 comments were submitted including a letter by 14 State Attorneys General. The comments are publicly available.[107] On November 16, 2012, Monsanto announced that it had received written notification from the U.S. Department of Justice that the Antitrust Division had concluded its inquiry and that the Department of Justice had closed the inquiry without taking any enforcement action.[108][109] Opponents of Monsanto’s seed patenting and licensing practices expressed frustration that the Department of Justice released no information about the results of the inquiry.[110]

All of these cases are a clear indication of the extent to which Monsanto is willing to push the limits. This is how corporate risk/loss assessment works. Sometimes the risk of paying a $15,000 find is worth the theft of a patent. My problem with this is they playing with my health if I decide to eat their products. The problem is what are their products? Who knows? Who knows who grew the crops for the corn flakes that you ate this morning for breakfast. Do you? I don’t. But I now know it was one of these companies.

Syngenta as well has been accused of making false claims about being involved in suits for false patent infringement. “In 2001, the United States Patent and Trademark Office ruled in favor of Syngenta which had filed a suit against Bayer for patent infringement on a class of neonicotinoid insecticides. The following year Syngenta filed suits against Monsanto and other companies claiming infringement of its U.S. biotechnology patents covering genetically modified corn and cotton. In 2004, it again filed a suit against Monsanto, claiming antitrust violations related to the U.S. biotech corn seed market, and Monsanto countersued. Monsanto and Syngenta settled all litigation in 2008.[49]

I mention this to point out the extent of their influence in the crop seed industry, where they have 15 of their own seed companies that all provide GMO crop seed for farmers to plant for their crops for food which ends up on our tables. Syngenta is the second largest corporation in the industry, Monsanto is even larger. (And we haven’t considered Bayer CropScience, Dow AgroSciences or DuPont Pioneer.) Most of these cases involve patent rights to GMO seed with companies like Monsanto or DuPont Pioneer. It’s not just patent problems; most of these companies like to make out that their products are completely harmless to the environment when they’ve been proven otherwise.

“Syngenta was a defendant in a class action lawsuit by the city of Greenville, Illinois concerning the adverse effects of atrazine in human water supplies. The suit was settled for $105 million in May 2012.[50][51][52] A similar case involving six states has been in federal court since 2010.[53][54]

“In the US, Syngenta is facing lawsuits from farmers and shipping companies regarding Viptera genetically modified corn. The plaintiffs in nearly 30 states contend that Syngenta’s introduction of Viptera drove down US grain market prices, leading to financial harm and that Syngenta acted irresponsibly by doing too little to enable shipping companies to export the grain to approved ports.[55] Before Vipera’s 2010 introduction Syngenta secured all US and NCGA-recommended export approvals, but none from China. China had imported little to no US grain prior to 2010, and at the time was not considered a major partner, but it became a major partner in 2010 when it dramatically increased US grain imports.[56] For three years, China imported U.S. Viptera grain without formal approval. In November 2013, Chinese officials destroyed a U.S. grain shipment containing Viptera grain, started rejecting all US shipments with the GM grain, but continued to accept it from all countries other than the US.[57] That same year, US corn market prices dropped $4 per bushel, causing over $2.9B in losses, with just over half of that loss occurring prior to China’s November rejection.[58] China later approved the GM corn in 2014 but US corn grain market prices have not rebounded.”

The choice is yours

These are the kind of companies that are ultimately providing your food. Do you want them making your drugs also? As you’ve seen, they already do. Do you wonder why the prevalence of these diseases is so rampant? It’s in these industries’ best interest that this cycle continues.

Do you want this kind of industry to be responsible for your food? Or medicine? How about the medicine they make to treat the problems their foods create? We’ve allowed this to take place, right under our noses and we should be ashamed. Doesn’t this sound a lot like a wicked witch luring small children with candy and sweets? Because of our addiction, we allow them to continue this behavior.

This addiction has and is costing America more money and lives than any other addiction that we’ve ever experienced. There are 24,000,000 deaths worldwide each year due to ECC, excessive carbohydrate consumption. There were 17.3 million deaths in 2013 alone due to cardiovascular disease. Cancer claims over 4 million each year and Alzheimer’s take 5 million each year, yet I hear no outrage about it. All of these deaths and suffering can be curbed simply by curbing carbohydrate consumption.

It’s time to put an end to this addiction. It’s time for a cure. But to stop the addiction, you first have to de-celebratize it. We have to stop celebrating its addictive qualities and exchange that celebration for the horror for what this addiction really does.

Everybody needs to think about what harm this food does before they put it in their mouth instead of thinking how good it tastes. Unfortunately for my generation and all those that have come along since, we’re stuck in the quagmire of addiction that we have to carry for the rest of our lives. Even most natural causes of death happen due, in part, due to what this food has done to the body over the lifetime of the deceased. An autopsy will likely show some form of arthritis, as this is evidence of inflammation, oxidative stress and cell degradation that these foods cause. If the inflammation, oxidative stress and cell degradation exists in the joints, it has to exist elsewhere in the body and since it exists throughout the body, as that’s where inflammation exists, in the blood. It has to affect everything it comes in contact with. That means it affects your heart, your brain, and every internal organ. How can that not have an effect on your life? It has to, so I have to ask, why is this food still allowed to be sold without a warning about just how dangerous it is? Cigarettes are. Alcohol is. Heroin is illegal and opioids require prescriptions. But not the one substance that minimizes all the damage caused by these other substances collectively, sugar from grains requires no warning for the damage they inflict. Why?

Going back to the problems this industry has had in court, mostly protecting their own patents and falsely claiming that their products are nutritious when they’re not. Most of the patent problems lie in the resistance their new crop seeds have to their insecticides and pesticides, which have proven to have adverse effects on the human body. Yet they are still allowed to spray their crops with these herbicides and pesticides. My question is, how much of these herbicides and pesticides trickle into our food supply? How confident are you that no chemicals are in what you eat? How confident are you that no enzyme controlling chemicals are not in your biscuits or crackers? How confident are you that your sugar addiction won’t turn into diabetes? How confident are you that your addiction won’t turn into heart disease or cancer? Whether you worry about it or not, you will experience brain loss. That’s just in the science. You can’t change it without saying goodbye to your addiction. This obviously isn’t easy with a grain industry that feeds the pharmaceutical industry. It’s even more obvious that they’ll never let us know the damage their foods do to everyone who ingests them. That’s up to you to know the dangers of sugar and grains, and now you do.

It’s time to say no to the industry that feeds you,

so you can say no to the industry that drugs you.

Learn to just say no to sugar, grains and drugs!

Sugar; America’s Worst Addiction,

Confessions of a Reformed Carboholic

Sugar, I love it. I grew up loving it. Because I grew up loving it, I’m now addicted to it. It’s an addiction that was forced upon me by our food industry, telling my mother that she had to make refined and whole grains the most prevalent food in my diet. She fed me this food, supposedly, to keep me healthy. Aren’t whole grains supposed to make you healthy? That was 60 years ago. I’m paying the price for that now, with my arthritis. I was paying the price for it just 30 months ago, by carrying 30 lbs more than what I carry right now and being borderline diabetic and in pain all the time. I’m about to debunk this myth that whole grains are healthy. There is a price to be paid for eating a (starchy) carbohydrate diet and you’re paying it with every sandwich you eat, every corn chip you munch, and every noodle you eat.

My sisters are paying the price for it now, also. They are both obese and diabetic. My father has always exercised to keep his weight down. He’s was always able to burn off the excess glucose, until he was about 35. Even though he’s always jogged every day, since I was in 7th grade, he couldn’t run away from this. After being borderline diabetic he couldn’t change his downhill spiral. He’s now taking an anti-diabetes drug which has several side effects that are initially so small that they aren’t noticed but after time, start to inflict other harm to the body, due to the effects of the chemical changes caused by the medication. His carb diet is starting to lead him down the same path as my mother, who passed away 4 months ago. My mother, in trying to be the best mother and wife she could be, went along with what the FDA, the USDA and the ADA told her because she wanted to do what was right for her family. Guidelines from the ADA telling her that grains needed to be at the base of her all of her meals was what drove her to do this to our family. This is what doomed us to our current list of ailments, ailments like obesity and diabetes, arthritis, cancer, stomach ailments galore, and now, side effects from treatment for those ailments. It all comes along with a carbohydrate diet because all carbs break down into glucose. Even yet, MyPlate.gov suggests that whole grains be a part of a healthy diet. The evidence I’m going to show you is completely contrary to this notion.

Because sugar addiction is America’s biggest addiction, that makes it, its worst addiction. It’s an addiction that everybody grew up with and into. It’s an addiction that’s been with us for as long as we’ve been eating it. It’s an addiction that’s become far worse than it’s ever been since we’ve been eating it over its 10,000-year history. It’s an addiction that’s built scores of empires, and then tore them all down. This addiction is far worse than any other addiction that plagues America. Whether it be today, yesterday or tomorrow, this addiction is the worst that Man has ever faced or may ever face. This is simply due to its propensity to expand its influence across the whole world. It’s also driven by the greed of those condemned to this addiction. Their desire to feed their own addiction drives them to impose this addiction on the rest of the world, simply so they can make an extra buck. This addiction is at the root of almost every known form of dementia, heart disease, diabetes and everything that comes along with that, like cancers, cardiovascular diseases. The list is endless because sugar’s worst instigator of inflammation, AGEs, or glycation is at the base of an arm-long list of disorders.

All of these disorders can be curbed simply by curbing carbohydrate consumption but addiction keeps this from happening. That’s why fighting this addiction, in particular, is so important. It’s life-saving at its simplest, just remove contaminating factors from the food source and the diseases cannot manifest themselves. The contaminating factor in this case? You guessed it, sugar. Sugar addiction is leading our society to the brink of destruction because of the nature of its addiction and what it does to the body. Its continued use only leads to discomfort and death. It’s only redeeming factor is that it tastes good and satiates quickly. This is what makes it so deadly, though.

That’s sad. I have to live with it too. I can’t have what I love, what I’ve been addicted to. I have to say no, to stay healthy. So do you. I know that’s exactly the opposite of what you’ve been told, but what you were told is wrong. For us, it’s dead wrong. It should have never been pushed upon us to eat it in the quantities that it was. But pushed upon us it was. And we bought it. We bought into it big time and we’re paying for it now. This is evidenced by the proliferation of Alzheimer’s disease. How many lives does it have to take, before people wake up? How many families does it have to destroy, before people wake up?

Carbolism Should Be Treated Like Alcoholism

We need clinics for sugar addiction and they should be financed by the food industrial complex that imposed this diet on the people who now suffer the consequences of it. The administration of the clinic though should be done by trained medical professionals, because this is an addiction and should be treated as such.

Is this something that should be investigated? Should an industry be held accountable for the ruse that’s been pulled on the American people, and now the world? The ruse is that this is healthy food when it’s really not. Why are they still allowed to claim that it’s healthy? It’s clearly not, and it’s clearly at the root of almost all of the deadliest diseases, that we’re actively fighting right now. Diseases like Atherosclerosis, Endocarditis and Hypertensive heart disease. That’s just the CVD’s. We haven’t even covered the cancers or diseases of inflammation. Those lists are much longer.

Can anyone tell me why this is still allowed to be advertised like it is today? It starts with what’s put in baby food for starches and fillers and sweeteners. These fillers satiate babies quickly often putting them right to sleep after a short burst of energy. This is the first indication of sugar addiction and it starts at a young age. This is done for a purpose. That purpose is to addict you to its lure, so you’ll buy into it when you’re an adult.

It continues with your introduction to breakfast cereals and the load of sugars they carry when you see them advertised with the Saturday morning cartoons. I can remember for commercials for Sugar Pops, Sugar Frosted Flakes, and Captain Crunch. It starts young, real young and continues through your youth with candy and soda, and into your adult years with bread and baked goods (cakes, crackers, cookies).

It’s been forced upon us. Nobody has had a choice in this addiction and that is what makes it so lethal. That also makes it profitable for the Pharmaceutical industry. This is what scares me. The Pharmaceutical industry used to be owned by the same industry the provided the crop seed for the farmers that grew the grain that provided the flour to bake all of those loaves of bread that causing so much disease.

The Perfect Ruse

It’s almost the perfect scam. Sell crop seed to farmers that have been genetically modified to accept enzyme inhibiting chemicals, so that it feeds your customer base, food that will require them, in the future to purchase medications from your other companies. How convenient we’ve made it for this industry to take our money. We should be ashamed.

We would be ashamed if we knew that this was done intentionally, especially if it was done for nothing more than profit. That is why this is something that should be investigated. Regardless of how long it takes, we need to know who is responsible. This is a lesson that cannot be lost, like every other study done on these concerns, we cannot allow this to be swept under the rug. Even if they’re no longer around, we need to hold their companies’ accountable. This is the only way we can prevent this from happening in the future.

For 1,000s of years, we’ve been treating the symptoms of the diseases and disorders that carbohydrate digestion cause. Because of our addiction to it, we’ve never looked at the prospect of eliminating the cause completely. When a whole society is addicted to a staple that they’ve eaten their whole lives, how does one tell the truth about something that is so important to everyone on the planet? How does one tell everyone that what they’re eating is killing them slowly, expensively, painfully, and worst of all, undignified because of all the lost memories from brain damage? How does one tell a whole society that a staple that they’ve lived on for close to 10,000 years has been, and continues to be, the one food that creates more disease and illness than any other one food in their diet? How does a world break their addiction, when the addicted are the majority of the world and only 5% of that population can recognize their addiction?

Dr. Perlmutter is trying to tell the people and continues to do so. I honestly feel that he thinks as I do, that if we don’t dispel the consumption of these foods, our society is doomed. From what I’ve learned since I’ve broken the addiction, I see a collapse, due to out of control emotions, due to the wild glucose swings in the blood, making people under the control of a carbohydrate diet, under the control of those who impose this diet on the American public. It’s in their interest to keep America addicted and the best way they can do this is to tell you that it’s healthy and what you need to keep your body healthy. Only those who want to buy their pharmaceuticals, from them in the future, are ones who should buy their food products now, because, they eventually will.

By following what little advice I offer, to curb your carbs dramatically and as completely as possible, you can dramatically slow down if not eliminate many of the disorders and diseases within these pages. If it can’t eliminate your disease, it will reduce the expression of your disorder. If it doesn’t cure you, it will definitely extend your life. My goal is to extend it a minimum of 20 years. I would like to see everyone live to be 100 years old, or more. I know this diet lifestyle can do that (depending on your age and degree of addiction of course). To know this yourself, though, you have to change your diet.

 

 

A Display of Dependence You Don’t Need
