Thousands of people have been infected and over 143 are now reported dead from the plague outbreak that’s now threatening Africa, reports the UK Daily Mail. “Health officials are unsure how this year’s outbreak began,” reports the paper. “Experts warn the disease spreads quicker in heavily populated areas.” Isn’t it interesting that just as Prince William is calling for “urgent depopulation efforts” in Africa, we suddenly have the rapid spread of the plague from unknown origins? As Natural News previously reported, Prince William appears to be pushing for depopulation efforts across Africa in the name of environmentalism: “Africa’s rapidly growing human population is predicted to more than double by 2050 – a staggering increase of three and a half million people per month,” Prince William explained during a recent event hosted by the Tusk Trust, a charity that is committed to protecting African wildlife. According to The Telegraph, Prince William continued, “Urbanization, infrastructure development, cultivation – all good things in themselves, but they will have a terrible impact unless we begin to plan and to take measures now.” Want to eliminate blacks? Just release a weaponized disease strain and blame Mother Nature What’s the quickest and easiest way for globalists to eliminate targeted human populations? Release a weaponized infectious disease and let it spread from city to city while using the outbreak to strengthen government funding of the vaccine and pharmaceutical industries. This, of course, is a form of medical genocide. Yet as we’ve repeatedly seen, vaccines and pharmaceuticals are now confirmed to be routinely used to reduce targeted populations rather than save lives. Just last week, for example, a bombshell science paper was released that documents the covert infertility chemical being spiked into W.H.O. vaccines administered in African nations. From Vaccines.news: [A] bombshell science paper has emerged that confirms the use of covert sterilization chemicals in World Health Organization vaccines deployed in Africa. Entitled, “HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World,” the paper documents the covert deployment of an infertility chemical in vaccines that are administered to young black women in Kenya. … [A] covert depopulation program is being run by the World Health Organization, targeting Africans for extermination via infertility chemicals administered under the guise of “vaccines.” These vaccines, notably, contain chemicals that are administered without the informed consent of the women being injected. In fact, the women are deliberately lied to and told the injections are meant to “protect your health.” But the real reason for the shots is to exterminate blacks in the name of “science” and “medicine.” Local governments, in other words, told young African women they needed these vaccine injections for their own health and safety. But the real agenda was to cause their bodies to kill their own unborn babies as part of a globalist depopulation agenda. Africa is repeatedly chosen as a testing ground for weaponized depopulation viral and bacterial strains, by the way, which is one reason why so many deadly, hyper-aggressive diseases are found spreading in Africa.

Africa is repeatedly chosen as a testing ground for weaponized depopulation viral and bacterial strains, by the way, which is one reason why so many deadly, hyper-aggressive diseases are found spreading in Africa. African scientist alleges U.S. Dept. of Defense manufactured the Ebola outbreak of 2014 Never forget that the Ebola outbreak of 2014 took place in Africa, and to this day there are enormous questions about whether the U.S. Dept. of Defense manufactured / weaponized that Ebola strain. Dr. Cyril Broderick, a Professor of Plant Pathology, wrote in 2014 that he believes Ebola was manufactured and deliberately released in Africa as a weaponized viral strain. His article, which originally appeared in The Liberian Observer, was later censored off that website. However, you can find his original article at InfiniteUnknown.net, or search for for “weaponized Ebola” at GoodGopher.com. Further supporting the notion of a weaponize Ebola release in Africa, Prof. Jason Kissner wrote in 2014: We can now be extraordinarily confident that the U.S. government is lying, in key material respects, about the latest Ebola outbreak–and not just because it lies about nearly everything of political consequence. This article shows that there are compelling reasons to believe we are being told three big lies about Ebola. It also offers a simple, rational, yet disturbing, explanation that very tidily accounts for all three lies. The explanation supposes that the current Ebola outbreak consists in an act of U.S.-linked bioterror. U.S. government PATENTED Ebola in 2010 and claims ownership over all the blood of Ebola victims Further confirming the bioweapons origins of Ebola, we also know that the “impossibly rapid vaccine response” in 2014 was completely scripted. In addition, we also know the U.S. government patented the current Ebola strain in 2010, proving it was an invention. Ebola vaccines were already developed in advance of the outbreak, then rapidly rolled out in a staged “reaction” to the spread of the viral strain. As documented in Natural News: On the very same day that vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline is being fined $490 million by Chinese authorities for running an illegal bribery scheme across China, the media is announcing the “astonishing” launch of human trials for an Ebola vaccine. Care to guess who will be manufacturing this vaccine once it is whitewashed and rubber-stamped as “approved?” GlaxoSmithKline, of course. The same company that also admitted to a massive criminal bribery network in the United States, where felony crimes were routinely committed to funnel money to over 40,000 physicians who pushed dangerous prescription drugs onto patients. This is the company that is now — today! — injecting 60 “volunteers” with an experimental Ebola vaccine. “Normally it would take years of human trials before a completely new vaccine was approved for use,” reports the BBC. “But such is the urgency of the Ebola outbreak in west Africa that this experimental vaccine is being fast tracked at an astonishing rate.” Yes, it’s astonishing because it’s impossible. As any vaccine-related virologist already knows, the process of going from an in-the-wild infection of Ebola to a manufactured vaccine ready for human trials simply cannot be achieved in a matter of a few weeks or months. Apparently, we are all to believe that a spontaneous scientific miracle has now taken place — a literal act of vaccine magic — which has allowed the criminal vaccine industry to skip the tedious R&D phases and create a vaccine ready for human trials merely by waving a magic wand. The far more likely explanation, of course, is that all this was scripted in advance: the outbreak, the international cry for help, the skyrocketing of the stock price for Tekmira (which has received financial investments from Monsanto), the urgent call for a vaccine and now the spontaneous availability of human vaccine trials. It’s all beautifully scripted from start to finish, better than a Shakespearean tragedy played out on the international stage. The “heroes” of this theater have been pre-ordained to be drug companies and vaccines, and it is already written in the script that vaccines will be heralded as lifesaving miracles of modern science even if they infect people and cause widespread damage as has now happened to young girls in Colombia who are being hospitalized en masse after being injected with HPV vaccines. W.H.O. antibiotics to be laced with infertility chemicals? The plague outbreak in Africa will be met, of course, with a wave of antibiotics “treatments” for the citizens. Where do those antibiotics come from? The World Health Organization, of course… the same nefarious depopulation group that secretly spiked Africa’s vaccines with sterilization chemicals as now confirmed by a published science paper. “The [plague] strain can be cured with antibiotics and the WHO money will go towards paying for extra medical personnel, the disinfection of buildings and fuel for ambulances,” reports the UK Daily Mail. In other words, the WHO will be running the mass medication campaign to distribute antibiotics to more Africans. This is the perfect opportunity for the WHO to spike antibiotics with infertility chemicals, thereby achieving its goal of causing spontaneous abortions, miscarriages and infertility across the demographic of young African women. According to reports, the WHO has pledged US$5 million to this effort. This money, of course, will be put to use distributing laced antibiotics to as many young African women as possible, all in the name of “public health.” Summary of the early evidence pointing to the likelihood that the plague may have been engineered as a depopulation weapon The timing of the plague spreading, just as globalists such as Prince William are calling for depopulation across Africa. The ongoing push for depopulation as a “climate” narrative which claims human populations must be reduced to save the planet. The realization that Africa’s current population explosion makes it the highest priority target for government-run depopulation efforts. The likelihood that the U.S. government was deeply involved in the Ebola trial run which tested the effectiveness of a viral bioweapon release in Africa. The history of vaccines, bioweapons and experimental pharmaceuticals being routinely tested across African nations. The fact that the WHO has already been caught spiking Africa’s vaccines with infertility chemicals. The fact that the WHO — the same organization caught spiking vaccines with infertility chemicals — will be funding the antibiotics distribution efforts in response to the plague outbreak. (Giving them the perfect chance to spike the antibiotics with infertility chemicals.) The massive financial windfall accrued to pharmaceutical and vaccine companies stemming from any such outbreak (and subsequent media panic). In other words, every outbreak has a long list of beneficiaries who profit from disease. Medical eugenics and the celebration of depopulation “successes” In the end, the WHO will be cheered. The pharmaceutical industry will be heralded as the savior, and governments will claim victory as yet another outbreak is eventually tamed by what we’re told is a science-based medical advancement that saves lives. Yet the deeper truth that we’ve never told is how these same organizations and drug cartels are actually working to achieve global depopulation goals by any means necessary… even if it means deliberately causing an outbreak so that they can harness the public panic to deliver more infertility chemicals to more black people who are targeted for destruction. If you don’t yet realize how blacks are systematically targeted for extermination across our planet, you don’t know the real history of science and medicine. I cover the five vectors of planned eugenics-based extermination in this mind-blowing video lecture that’s a “must watch” for all people of African ancestry: LINK: https://www.naturalnews.com/2017-11-11-evidence-mounts-that-plague-outbreak-in-africa-is-an-engineered-depopulation-bioweapon.html

If you’re craving something sweet, grab an apple instead of a bar of chocolate. A group of scientists has recently discovered a link between high glucose levels in the brain and symptoms of memory loss, which could lead to Alzheimer’s. The brain breaks down glucose, or sugar in its most basic form, and it is used to provide energy to make the brain function. However, individuals with brains that had a hard time breaking down glucose showed more signs of brain plaques and tangles, which are indicators of Alzheimer’s. (Related: High sugar-based diet, obesity strongly linked to causing Alzheimer’s and dementia.) According to the scientists, the study has proven a significant link between high levels of glucose in the brain and the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Individuals with brains that were less efficient at breaking down glucose showed worse outward dementia symptoms like memory loss, which is often associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Since the research is still in its early stages, it remains to be seen why being bad at breaking down glucose results in plaques and tangles. Dr. Madhav Thambisetty, at the National Institute of Aging (NIA) in the U.S., studied brain tissue samples from autopsies collected by the Baltimore Longitudinal study on Aging. The study is part of a research project that is looking into the health conditions of people over several decades. Along with his colleagues, Thambisetty is studying areas of the brain that are vulnerable to plaques and tangles, such as the frontal and temporal cortex, both of which are necessary for memory and language. The researchers also observed areas of the brain that could resist these features, like the cerebellum, which is responsible for movement, muscles, and muscular activity. The scientists determined that individuals with more severe Alzheimer’s had a harder time with glycolysis, or the breaking down of glucose needed to produce energy. Both the slower rate of glycolysis and higher brain glucose levels were linked to more severe plaques and tangles in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s. The former was also connected to symptoms of the disease like memory problems. Richard J. Hodes, the director of the NIA, shared that researchers have already considered the possible connection between how the brain processes glucose and the disease. He added, “Research such as this involves new thinking about how to investigate these connections in the intensifying search for better and more effective ways to treat or prevent Alzheimer’s disease.” Dr. Clare Walton, the research manager at Alzheimer’s Society, said, “The link between how well the brain uses glucose and Alzheimer’s disease is not new – in fact we’ve been using brain scans that show changes in glucose use to study the disease for more than 30 years. What we don’t know is whether changes in brain glucose metabolism play a role in causing or worsening Alzheimer’s disease or whether the changes are just a by-product of damage already occurring to brain cells.” Walton believes that the revolutionary research is studying glucose metabolism in a unique way by examining the brain tissue of people who have already passed away, and that it points to “changes in the pathways that transport and use glucose in the brain cells,” which happen when Alzheimer’s progresses. She concluded, “As these changes appear to precede the onset of dementia symptoms, they should be further investigated.” Tips to manage your blood sugar Aside from limiting sweet treats that you consume, here are some tips you can try to lower your blood sugar: Exercise – Try to be active daily. Take the stairs instead of using the elevator, or do some sit-ups while watching TV. Drink more water – When you drink more water, it’ll be easier to stave off hunger. Choose a bottle of water instead of soda or other sugary beverages. Get enough sleep – When you sleep late, your blood sugar increases. Manage your time so that you get at least eight hours of sleep every night. Keep electronics outside your bedroom so you won’ be tempted to stay up late.

It’s been all over the mainstream media for days: InfoWars nutritional products have been found to contain high lead, a toxic heavy metal, media stories claim. But is the story really true, or is this just a politically motivated smear campaign to try to destroy InfoWars’ primary revenue source? Without exception, every piece of mainstream media news attacking InfoWars over this supposed lead finding in their products is rife with political attacks aimed at InfoWars’ political speech. Additionally, almost every story universally accuses anyone who sells nutritional supplements of being a “snake oil salesman,” even when it’s actually toxic prescription pharmaceuticals that are murdering millions around the globe (see PharmaDeathClock.com for a real-time count). No one has ever asserted that InfoWars products have killed anyone, yet chemotherapy alone has killed 17.8 million people since January 1, 2000, and the mainstream media pretends that isn’t happening at all. (FDA approved pharmaceuticals kill hundreds of thousands a year on top of that, but who’s counting?) An honest look at the lead levels in InfoWars products reveals a surprising conclusion Just how much lead was found in InfoWars products? California’s Proposition 65, which was originally passed as a “clean water law,” has been applied to nutritional supplements while exempting all foods, by the way. It sets a limit of 0.5 micrograms of lead per day when the supplement is consumed according to the serving size recommended on the label. The InfoWars Caveman product that was tested is labeled at 21 grams per serving, and according to news reports, the amount of lead found in those 21 grams exceeded the Proposition 65 limit by six times, meaning it was somewhere around 3 micrograms of total lead. This means it contains approximately 0.143 micrograms of lead per gram of the product. In other words, the lead concentration in the product is approximately 143 parts per billion (ppb). Video:https://youtu.be/sl1KQ2hvQpw If you take a look at the LowHeavyMetalsVerified.org standard I created and published years ago, that would put this InfoWars product as an “A” grade for heavy metals. Are you shocked yet? In other words: There isn’t as much lead in it as the media seems to imply, especially when compared to other products I’ve tested and exposed, such as Zeolites. As a comparison, while this InfoWars Caveman product may contain 143 ppb of lead, I’ve tested many zeolites that contain over 50,000 ppb lead. Yet nobody in the mainstream media is covering the lead in zeolites… that is, no one except Natural News. Every wonder why? It’s because the mainstream media doesn’t actually care about lead in products; they only care about attacking InfoWars or other Trump supporters. Flu shots found to contain 350 times higher concentration of mercury than the lead in InfoWars Caveman product I’ve also tested flu shots for mercury and found they contain 50,000+ ppb of mercury, a far more toxic heavy metal than lead. Yet the entire mainstream media says nothing at all about mercury in flu shots. Somehow, InfoWars products are portrayed as “dangerous” when they contain 143 ppb of lead, but flu shots are said to be “lifesaving” when they contain 50,000 ppb of mercury. Flu shots are far more dangerous, too, because they are injected into the body’s tissues. The InfoWars Caveman product, in contrast, is ingested through the digestive tract. Nobody is mainlining Caveman powder. Yet that doesn’t stop the mainstream media from going all-out to smear InfoWars, even though they don’t really understand heavy metals science. (Nearly all mainstream media journalists are scientifically illiterate.) Newsweek, for example, smears Alex Jones with this line: Jones may be just the latest in a long line of snake oil salesmen in American history, a carnival barker with magic tonic to sell. His ingenuity lies in combining anti-government conspiracy theory with a robust supplement-selling operation. The Infowars store—“a one-stop shop for the modern conspiracy theorist” … is sort of like the Vitamin Shoppe remodeled by someone who, well, listens a little too closely to Alex Jones. …[N]ew research commissioned by the Center for Environmental Health (CEH) has determined that two products sold by Jones contain potentially dangerous levels of the heavy metal lead, which is universally known to be harmful to the body. But what Newsweek doesn’t tell you is that InfoWars could comply with Proposition 65 by simply labeling their product as a “food” rather than a dietary supplement. Foods, you see, are all exempt from Proposition 65 lead limits. Not coincidentally, I can assure you that grocery stores all across America are selling food that contain far higher lead concentrations than the 143 ppb reported for these InfoWars products. In fact, I can walk into any grocery store in America and purchase turmeric root or ginger root in the fresh produce section, test it in my lab via ICP-MS and find higher levels of lead than 143 ppb. (Turmeric, ginger and other roots are notorious for high lead levels, usually far beyond 143 ppb.) Interestingly, I just completed a round of heavy metals testing for bone broth products, and while they all passed with a grade of at least A++ or better, we saw over 215ppb of cadmium in the Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Meal Chocolate Cream product. (The cadmium comes from the chocolate, not the bone broth. Lots of chocolate sources are high in cadmium.) As I’ve detailed in my book Food Forensics, there are many spices (such as curry, etc.) which are drastically higher than 143 ppb in terms of their lead content. I once tested a mangosteen powder that contains over 10,000 ppb lead. Notably, Amazon.com sells lead-contaminated products all day long, yet the media says nothing about Amazon’s retailing of very high-lead products. I’ve tested many products purchased from Amazon that contain 50,000 or even 100,000 ppb of lead. (Where are all the media stories about Amazon selling toxic lead? Nowhere to be found…) I’m going to test InfoWars products myself to see if the California lab is lying Beyond everything mentioned above, I have a suspicion the lab in California may not be telling the truth about their test results. In the interests of real science, I’m going to test the InfoWars Caveman product myself and see what lead levels we find. If it is substantially different from what the California company is reporting, I am going to provide my lab results to InfoWars so they can pursue legal action against their accusers. (My laboratory is ISO-accredited and internationally validated, and its results are recognized by every court in the western world.) On the other hand, if my results show similar numbers to the California lab, I’ll post those, too. But even then, these concentrations of lead are nowhere near the alert level being implied by the lying fake news media, which seems to be implying that InfoWars products will kill you. (Vaccines, meanwhile, killed at least 1,440 U.S. children last year, according to the U.S. government’s own statistics, and there isn’t a peep about that from the fake news media.) This will be an interesting test. Most nutritional supplements manufacturers blindly accept the findings of other laboratories because they have no way of knowing whether those results are right or wrong. Yet I founded and run a multi-million dollar forensic food laboratory, so I can test this myself with extreme accuracy, and I’ll bring you those results to either confirm or challenge the other lab that’s reporting roughly 143ppb of lead. How InfoWars could have avoided all this in the first place Finally, despite the fact that there isn’t actually an insane amount of lead in InfoWars products, InfoWars was incredibly sloppy (stupid?) to not test their own products for Proposition 65 compliance, especially knowing that of course they’re going to be targeted with intense scrutiny by all their political enemies in California. Similarly, the Health Ranger Store is also targeted by the entire mainstream media and the biotech industry, yet they haven’t been able to find high heavy metals in our products for the simple reason that we conduct exhaustive laboratory testing on all our raw materials and finished products. (I do thank them for all the purchases, however. Keep on buying. You won’t find high lead in our products unless you spike it yourself.) If InfoWars hopes to survive in the nutritional supplements space, they need to start using my laboratory for honest ICP-MS analysis of their raw materials and finished products. My lab — CWC Labs — is quite possibly the only lab in the world that will treat InfoWars with honesty and scientific integrity (nearly all other labs are funded by universities, governments or pharmaceutical giants). It’s bewildering to me that InfoWars hasn’t used my lab yet to test their own products before launching them to the public. In addition to conducting lab testing, InfoWars also needs to understand how Proposition 65 really works. For example, there are three easy ways that InfoWars could have made their products Prop 65 compliant, at virtually no cost: Position their Caveman product as a “food” rather than a “supplement.” All foods are exempt from Prop 65 lead limits. Reduce the serving size on the label to one-sixth the current serving size, thus bringing the total lead intake per day to less than 0.5 micrograms. Place a warning label somewhere on the bottle that contains the California Prop 65 warning language about “this product contains chemicals known to cause cancer.” Some companies place these labels only on products being shipped to California. The fact that InfoWars wasn’t aware of these strategies to comply with Proposition 65 — or wasn’t aware of the lead content of their product — tells me they don’t really know what they’re doing in the nutritional products space. InfoWars does have a very good claims compliance attorney that helps them avoid FDA raids and such, but the actual composition of their products needs to be immediately revisited. If they hope to survive, they need to start using an accredited laboratory, and they need to test all their finished products for lead and other contaminants. Actually, what they really need is CWC Labs certification of their entire product line, where I test and affirm each production lot and post those results independently, on CWClabs.com. I haven’t spoken with Alex Jones since 2013, and I don’t agree with all his supplement promotion tactics and on-air product hype that seems to have turned InfoWars into a 24/7 infomercial. But in the interests of public safety, I’m happy to take on InfoWars as a lab science client if they want accurate, accredited, rapid laboratory analysis of all their raw materials and finished products. This can help InfoWars find cleaner raw materials while certifying their finished products meet or exceed all heavy metals limits that exist at the state or federal level. Can you imagine the increased value and trust to InfoWars if all their products were “low heavy metals verified” by an independent laboratory? In the mean time, I’m going to test the InfoWars Caveman product and find out if that California lab is lying. Watch for those results to be posted at NaturalNews.com. I’m going to run five tests to avoid any sampling error, by the way. Soon we’ll all find out whether this California lab is telling the truth. Every nutritional supplement company needs to use our lab services If any other nutritional supplement companies want to avoid the headaches that InfoWars just went through, you can also use our lab services to test your raw materials and finished products for heavy metals. Heavy metals test kits are available at the Health Ranger Store for $149 each, or you can contact us at CWClabs.com for quantity discounts if you have higher volumes. We conduct heavy metals tests using Agilent ICP-MS instrumentation. We use EPA-validated methodology, and all our results are ISO-accredited and recognized by the FDA as legitimate testing results. You can put these lab test results in your GMP files (Good Manufacturing Practices), and the FDA will know you are doing your job correctly. The FDA has surprise inspected our manufacturing facility twice already, and both times we have received outstanding feedback, even praise, from the inspectors. Here’s a look at how we’re now reporting results to the public By the way, as a side note to all this, here’s how we’re now reporting product testing results to the public for off-the-shelf products that we test. This is for a bone broth product we recently tested, where we found trace levels of certain chemicals (but the overall score is still very close to 100): Ancient Nutrition: Bone Broth Protein (Coffee) Testing Date: 10/3/2017 Lot Number: 36177 Sample Number: Certified Organic: Labeled Non-GMO: Ingredients Rating: Low Heavy Metals Rating: Pesticides/Herbicides: Fungicides: Antibiotics / Antibacterials: Pharmacological Drugs: Toxicological Drugs: Industrial Chemicals: All testing conducted in the public interest by the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center using an ISO-accredited laboratory, via mass spec technology.

For years I have gone into food stores and read labels only to not know what half the ingredients were. I got to thinking, that maybe I’m not alone when it comes to knowing what the rest of them are. So, I’ve put together what might be a one-stop shopping guide to understanding what’s in your food. A good idea would be to print this and take it with you when you go shopping. ACESULFAME POTASSIUM: This is also known as acesulfame K or ace K. Commercially, it is marketed as Sweet One and Sunett. It is nothing more that a calorie-free, chemical, artificial sweetener that is used in over 5,000 products worldwide. You will find it in chewing gum, diet drinks, and light fruit drinks and used as a sugar replacement in desserts and baked goods because of its heat stability. It is 200 times sweeter than sugar and despite no testing done to determine its safety for human consumption, the Fraud and Drug Administration has not required testing despite knowing that this crap can cause cancer in animals. Oh yeah, it is not metabolized or stored in the body. ACIDS: The basic use of food acids are to enhance flavors and act as preservatives, to increase shelf life, and antioxidants to somehow provide some sort of artificial protection. The common food acids include vinegar, citric acid from citrus fruits, tartaric acid from grapes, and malic acid from apples. These are the safe ones. But ADIPIC ACID, used in the production of nylon, is what the food industry uses in gelatin containing products, bottled drinks, and powdered fruit concentrates. It also has a low pH making food decay to take a bit longer. CITRIC ACID, which we find in citrus fruits, is not what we find in food manufacturing. Basically this comes from corn (hello GMO), and it brings out the flavors of the other ingredients and provides a “tanginess” to otherwise boring foods. Did I forget to say that it greatly extends shelf life? Indeed it does! MALIC ACID, is a good one as it comes from apples and used by the food industry to provide a tart or sour flavor to foods. Malic acid in combination with magnesium can help in alleviating fibromyalgia. ANNATTO COLOR: This is a natural yellow/red plant extract used to dye foods, textiles, and body care products. Primarily it is used as a red food coloring in cereals, preserved meats (otherwise they would be in their natural moldy grey color), cheeses, and sweets. Annatto has an incredible distinction – it is the only natural color known to cause as many adverse effects as artificial colors and is used because Annatto sounds better that Artificial. Adverse effects? How about reactions to skin, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and central nervous systems? ANTIOXIDANTS (food grade): These slow the oxidation of fats, oils, colorings, and flavorings. They are better known as: BHT and BHA, which are only used to prevent oxidation, slow rancidity and yes, extend shelf life. You can find BHT and BHA in cereals, instant potatoes, frozen dinners, baked goods, chewing gum, beer, and some fruit drinks. The bad news: they affect the central nervous system, cause behavioral problems in kids, and BHT can convert hormones and contraceptives into carcinogens. ARTIFICIAL BUTTER FLAVOR: Do not touch it with a ten-foot pole! This creation contains more than one hundred chemicals. You can find this in popcorn, as have the factory workers for microwave popcorn that experienced an inflammatory lung disease, or “Popcorn Worker’s Lung Disease”, from the exposure to the diacetyl contained therein. Diacetyl is also hidden in ice cream, candy and baked goods as “artificial flavor”. Included also is a chemical named acetoin, which is an aroma carrier used in flavor preparations. It is also another culprit in the Popcorn disease. ARTIFICIAL COLOR: These are basically from petroleum products and the Fraud and Drug Administration has “approved” the following bearing the letters FD&C (Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic): FD&C Blue # 1 – Brilliant Blue FCF -A blue shade found in beverages, candy and baked goods. Hello cancer! FD&C Blue # 2 – Indigotine – A dark blue shade found in pet food, beverages and candy. Yes, same as above! FD&C Green # 3 – Fast Green FCF, E143 – A bluish green that is rarely used. Same! FD&C Red # 3 – Erythrosine – High doses caused cancer in lab animals. FD&C Red # 40 – Allura Red, E129 – Produces allergy-like reactions, cancer, and hyper-activity in kids. FD&C Yellow # 5 – Tartrazine – A yellow shade found in soft drinks, energy drinks, cotton candy, flavored chips, cereals, cake mixes, pastries, sports drinks, and other convenience foods. Skin rash, skin allergies, asthma, runny nose, and hyperactivity in kids. FD&C Yellow # 6 – Sunset yellow, E 110 – An orange shade found in DayQuill capsules, Extra strength Tylenol, fortune cookies, red sauces, chips, and yellow, orange, and red food products. It is linked to allergies, nausea, nasal congestion, and hyperactivity in kids. ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR: This is a cheap way for a food pimp to make a flavorless, bland food taste yummy. Guess what? The Fraud and Drug Administration does not require labeling as long as the product has the “Generally Recognized As Safe” label for the ingredients. Bear in mind that lots can be hidden under the word “flavor”. Just to let you know, the flavor “Vanillin”, which is the synthetic version of Vanilla, is made from petroleum and benzene, a known carcinogen. ASPARTAME: An artificial sweetener composed of 50 percent phenylalanine, 40 percent aspartic acid, and 10 percent methanol and converts to formaldehyde at 84 degrees (the body’s temperature is 98.6). If you wish to become brain dead or experience headaches, dizziness, behavioral changes, convulsions, diarrhea, memory loss, itching, hives, and weight gain (yes, you read that right), knock yourself out. BARLEY MALT: Safe BENZOATES: Antimicrobial preservatives used in food and drink to maintain flavor and extend shelf life. Linked to allergic reactions and cancer. BETA-CAROTENE: Safe BROWN RICE SYRUP: Safe CALCIUM STEARATE: It’s a salt and used as an anti-caking agent, binder, emulsifier, filler, and foaming agent. It’s used in supplements and store bought MSM pills or powders, making it worthless. No food testing has been done. CALCIUM SULFATE: Basically, this is chalk and is used as a coagulant. CARMINE: A red color that comes from crushed up red beetles. In other words, bug juice. CARNAUBA WAX: A vegetable wax that comes from a tree in Brazil used to coat candy, frosting, gum, and as a coating for floors and cars. CASEIN: AKA caseinate, calcium caseinate, ammonia caseinate, magnesium caseinate, potassium caseinate, and sodium caseinate. It is the principal protein in milk. COCOA (alkalized) Crapola! This “stuff” uses hydroxide to neutralize the acids in the cocoa, giving it a smoother and less bitter taste but causing the cocoa to lose up tom 90 percent of its antioxidants. COCONUT OIL: In food manufacturing, this is refined, bleached, deodorized, and useless. Do not confuse it with organic virgin cold-pressed coconut oil, which is highly beneficial to health. CONFECTIONER’S GLAZE: AKA shellac. It’s the waste product of the Lac beetle in India, Myanmar, and Thailand used as a clear coating to protect candy quality. If you like eating beetle doo-doo, go for it. CORN SYRUP: AKA high-fructose-corn-syrup. It is a GMO, has no nutritional value, and allows you to gain weight easily. DEXTROSE: Comes for sugar and GMO corn. Having the same formula as glucose, the word dextrose is used because the pimps believe that people will choose dextrose over glucose. It is nothing more than refined sugar that you do not need. EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) A chelating agent that is toxic to cells, potentially carcinogenic, an organic pollutant, collects in ground water and can carry heavy metals back into the drinking water. It is added to canned foods to trap metal impurities. Yum! EMULSIFIERS: These enable foods with fat and water to stay mixed together to give a more “appealing” look and consistent texture. The most commonly used is lecithin. FUNCTIONAL FIBERS: We all know the importance of fiber for a healthy bowel function. There are, however, fibers that are so heavily processed that you need to avoid them like the plague. ALGINATE has chelating properties, comes from algae and seaweed, and moves toxins out of the body. It is used in processed foods to present a “creamy” texture. Also in cereal bars, ice cream, salad dressings, cheese spreads, and frozen dinners. Propylene glycol alginate, chemically modified, thickens soda and salad dressings and stabilizes the foam in beer. CELLULOSE comes from the indigestible part of plants and is used to thicken, prevent caking, emulsify, and gel foods. METHYLCELLULOSE is chemically produced with the same stuff used to make Drano. If you see this on a label, run away. GELATIN: Comes from animal’s hooves and connective tissue of animals and fish. Gumdrops are pure gelatin. Ugh! GUMS: Mostly from natural sources like seeds, tree sap, and seaweed. Some good; some bad. CARRAGEENAN is carcinogenic when used as food grade (in foods). LOCUST BEAN GUM comes from carob beans. A good one. GUM ARABIC/ GUM ACACIA is good in foods and good in paints, glues, and textiles. GUAR GUM is another one that okay. XANTHAN GUM basically comes from corn and is likely a GMO. INULIN: Comes from chicory root and acts as a probiotic in the gut. While it binds, it removes cholesterol, fat and dangerous hormones. LACTOSE: Comes from milk. Caucasians, except for Scandinavians, are 75, percent lactose intolerant, Asians are 85 percent lactose intolerant, and blacks are 95 percent lactose intolerant. If you experience cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea or a runny nose and congestion after consuming milk products, you are lactose intolerant or allergic to all the antibiotics and growth hormones contained within the usual cooked to death and. devoid of all nutrients, dairy products. MALTODEXTRIN: For the most part it comes from corn and is likely a GMO. In Europe, where Monsanto has been kicked out of, it comes mostly from barley and wheat MSG: Anything modified, hydrolyzed, textured, autolyzed, protein isolates, yeast extract, and torula yeast are the most commonly used. Go to your search engine and put in MSG euphemisms and you will get a list that will blow your mind. NITRATES and NITRITES: Found in cured, processed, and fast food meats. They cause cancer. OLESTRA: (Olean) An additive to make low-fat or fat free foods. Causes diarrhea, abdominal cramps, gas and interferes with the absorption of health-protective, fat-soluble vitamins and antioxidants. PALM OIL: Choose palm fruit oil over palm oil. Palm oil is loaded with saturated fat. If it says “modified” palm oil, take a hike. It is the highest in saturated fat and not any better than the partially hydrogenated trans fats they are used to replace, which in of itself promotes heart disease by increasing the amount of “bad” LDL cholesterol and decreasing the amount of “good” HDL cholesterol. It is by far the worst of the worst. PECTIN: A good guy coming from fruits, vegetables and legumes to thicken products. POLYDEXTROSE: Considering it comes from combining corn sugar, a GMO, with sorbitol, the GMO part is enough to turn me off. It is usually added to products containing unhealthy products and can result in diarrhea. PGPR (polyglycerol polyricinolate): An emulsifier and “el Cheepo” replacement for cocoa butter in chocolate bars made from castor oil. Allegedly, it is safe. Not for me it isn’t! POLYSORBATE 60: Comes from GMO corn oil, crappy palm oil, and petroleum and leads to harmful reproductive health, organ toxicity, and cancer. POLYSORBATE 80: An emulsifier used in creams and lotions and is linked, as well, to cancer as well as nervous system and reproductive toxicity and can cause anaphylactic reactions. POTASSIUM BROMATE: This “goodie” has the distinction of being banned in just about every country in the world except the U.S. It makes you wonder if Monsanto has something to do with it. It’s used in breads and has shown to cause renal cancer in rats. PRESERVATIVES (propionates, propyl gallate, propylene glycol. Propylene glycol monosteatate): Feet don’t fail me know! The only thing good about them is you can avoid them. If you don’t – hello migraines, gastrointestinal problems, toxicity to the central nervous system, kidneys, blood system, heart, yeast infections, and vaginal infections. SOY LECITHIN AND OIL: If it don’t say organic, “give ‘er a miss, mate!” Non-organic means GMO. STEVIA: A great herb as an alternative to sugar. I like the drops. SUCANET: Dehydrated sugarcane juice. SUCRALOSE (Splenda) An artificial sweetener made from chlorine and just as toxic as aspartame. Why couldn’t they just leave in the swimming pool? SUGAR ALCOHOLS (erythritol, lacitol, mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol): All okay except that lacitol comes from milk products, in case you are lactose intolerant. Xylitol is poisonous to dogs, so be careful where you keep it. SULFITES: Sulfites destroy vitamin B1 and folic acid. They also contribute to headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, behavioral problems, skin rashes, and asthma. AVOID! TBHQ (tertiary butylhydoquinone): A petroleum based, synthetic, food-grade antioxidant used to preserve unsaturated vegetable oils, animal fats, frozen fish, and some chocolate. It is also used in perfume, varnish, lacquer, and resins. It is associated with nausea, vomiting, and ringing in the ears. TITANIUM DIOXIDE (E171) Used as an artificial color to make foods white, especially dairy products, skin-care products, toothpaste, sunscreen, paper, paint, and more. Symptoms can be skin rash, muscle pain, and fatigue. Well, there you go. Maybe I didn’t get everything but I sure got enough for you to make an informed choice. And if by chance, it’s already in your system how do you get rid of it? The oxygen released by the organic sulfur crystals works miracles. Aloha!

Spirulina is a blue-green colored algae (cyanobacteria). It is largely made up of protein and essential amino acid. It is also rich in Vitamins, carotenoids, minerals, and antioxidants. Nutrients such as B-complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium and essential fatty acids can also be found in Spirulina. Just like plants, it can manufacture energy from the sunlight. It greatly depends on ATP and another nutrient such as water and soil. It is believed to be the oldest existing form of plants in the world. On the other hand, Spirulina can be a toxic substance without correct prior handling and process it. Health Benefits of Using Spirulina Different researchers have already tested and identified each of the components it has. Through phytochemical analysis, every component has already been confirmed. As science develops more way on identifying its clinical uses, Spirulina has been proven to have its greatest effects on human’s health.There are a lot of health issues nowadays. The society has reached the peak of needing more ways to unlock treatment against widespread diseases such as infectious diseases, cellular diseases, tropical diseases and so forth. Many provided remedy and cure. But the most useful and resourceful way is through herbal medicine. Spirulina is just one of the herbal medicines that have given promising effect to improve the health of the people and provide benefits of antioxidant powders. Aside from its numerous resources and easy availability, Spirulina has benefited human’s health in various ways: It has powerful antioxidant property The benefits of antioxidant powders have been excellent in showing its effect. Antioxidant property protects our cells from any damage. Oxidative damage spuriously harms our cells. It changes the conformation of the cells that leads to affect its natural physiology. Spirulina is an amazing source of antioxidant. It contains phycocyanin. It is the active component of spirulina and also responsible for its blue-green pigmentation. Phycocyanin is an agent against free radicals. It inhibits production of inflammatory cytokines that results to effective anti-oxidant. It supplements many nutrients It is a great source of many essential nutrients that our body needs. It provides vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinamide, pyridoxine, folic acid, ascorbic acid, vitamin D, vitamin A and vitamin E. It is also a source of electrolytes such as potassium, calcium and sodium; and trace elements such as chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium and zinc. Spirulina supplies most of the nutrients needed by our body for its normal regulation and its normal function. It is also said to be good for improving memory. It improves memory Researchers have shown that Spirulina has the capability to sharpen the memory. It protects the brain from damage and degenerative diseases. Stress and other factors that commonly affect the brain diminish its ability to memorize. Most of the time it causes emotional stability and behavioral changes. Spirulina is an excellent producer of Omega-3 fats. It can protect the brain from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress greatly affects the brain. It disrupts messaging signal for pulses. It also interferes with the physiology of the brain. Researchers also think hat Spirulina increases the amount of L-tryptophan. L-tryptophan is an amino acid responsible to synthesize brain chemicals such as serotonin and melatonin. These brain chemicals are responsible for our behavioral changes. Spirulina improves cognitive ability, mental health, and function of the brain. It stimulates the brain cells to actively work. It also keeps the mind alert and easy to perceive information. Thus, a healthy brain correlates with a healthy body. It helps to fight cancer Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in the world. Many types of research are about cancer. Study has shown that Spirulina can help fight against cancer. Spirulina stimulates the body to produce antibodies against cancer cells and infection-fighting components. Spirulina is rich in tetrapyrrolic compounds.It is a strong agent that exhibits anti-toxicity and anti-proliferation. The degree of cancer depends on how well the cancer cells spread all over the body. It can either be benign or malignant. One way to fight cancer is to stop the spread of these cancer cells. It lowers blood pressure Spirulina has shown effective in lowering blood pressure. Phycocyanin, which gives pigment to spirulina, is also an anti-hypertensive agent. This pigment corrects endothelial dysfunction and regulates well the flow of blood. This also prevents metabolic syndrome. It reduces cholesterol Too much bad cholesterol can cause heart attack, hypertension, and myocardial infarction. People need to minimize the amount of bad cholesterol in the body. Spirulina has shown to be effective in reducing amounts of cholesterol in the body. Spirulina minimizes LDL and Triglycerides. Blood cholesterol should always be balanced. Aside from a well-balanced diet, an additional of Spirulina in a diet can prevent health conditions caused by these metabolites. It helps in minimizing allergic reactions Its components enhance the immune system of the body. A body is protected by its immune system against any diseases. Spirulina boosts up the immune system through stimulating antibodies and other components of an immune system such as cytokines and CD4. It minimizes the allergic reaction through regulating the blood vessel. As the blood vessel is regulated, any adverse reaction is minimized. Antibodies fight against foreign activities occurring inside the body. Hence, protecting the body to get compromised. It should be included in detox diet plan Detoxifying the body is one of the greatest ways to keep the body healthy. Cleansing the body will replenish its system. Any alterations in the system can be fixed. Most diseases are formed through toxic that invades throughout different organs in the body. Spirulina contains the great amount of chlorophyll. This pigment is necessary to remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system. Heavy metal poisoning is widespread. Spirulina binds to heavy metals as well, particularly with Arsenic and radioactive isotopes acquired during radioactivity treatment. Conclusion: Wonders of herbal medicine with a great advance in science is a promising action against the worldwide battle against all known diseases. Researchers will continue its move to discover more and formulate different ideas for the good of everyone. Spirulina is one of an essential herbal medication you should add on your detox diet plan. With its awesome benefits, there is no way you do not need it.

Did you know that oxygen is perhaps the most important substance for healthy functioning of the body and possibly even anti-aging? When your blood is infused with good old 02, many mechanisms come into play which all equate to better health and cancer prevention. Remember, cancer cells thrive in an acidic, low-oxygen environment. By keeping your blood oxygen levels high, you can keep cancer tumor proliferation at bay. As it turns, the best way to increase your blood oxygen levels is to go back to the basics. Here’s why: Breathe! Did you know that improper breathing may reduce oxygen levels in the blood by 20 percent? Low oxygen levels in the blood is called hypoxemia and can lead to anxiety, fatigue, headaches and in seriously low blood oxygen levels, cyanosis, coma and death. On the other hand, practicing deep breathing with your back straight and lungs and diaphragm engaged, can help turn on your healing responses. In fact, research conducted at the Augusta Women’s Center in August, Georgia found that expanding the lungs triggers neurological responses which can slow the metabolic rate and turn on the parasympathetic nervous system. Exercise Getting adequate amounts of exercise every day, especially the kind where your heart rate increases for at least 30 minutes, can significantly raise your blood oxygen level. This occurs through an intricate communication between the brain and the body. As you work out, your cells burn oxygen more quickly. In turn, carbon dioxide levels increase ad the brain increases respiration. The result: more oxygen to every cell in your body. Exercise also stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, which can help calm blood pressure for those with hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Eat the right foods This means eating foods that contain plenty of antioxidants as well as essential fatty acids. First of all, antioxidants can help the body use the oxygen it does receive more efficiently. Consume foods that contain plenty of vitamins like A, C and E such as berries, certain legumes and dark green leafy vegetables like kale. Essential fatty acids help to increase oxygen levels in the hemoglobin, which is the oxygen-transport mechanism in the blood. Remember that the body cannot produce many types of fatty acids, so it is up to you to eat foods such as cold water fish, flax oil, olive oil and walnuts that have high amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids and omega 3’s. Also keep in mind that consuming too much alcohol and sugary foods will both lead to oxidative stress which can lower blood oxygen levels and open you up to disease like cancer. According to research supported in part by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism using Blood Oxygen Level Dependent (BOLD) responses, adolescents with Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) develop significant abnormalities in specific brain responses, including those involving memory and spacial awareness. Exercise Without Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) If you are serious about increasing your oxygen intake—and if you are on a healing journey with breast cancer or another form of cancer then you should be—you may want to consider specialized modalities which can significantly increase your levels through the use of an oxygen device. We have been discussing how essential oxygen is for the growth of healthy cells. But did you know that oxygen is deadly to cancer cells? Studies have confirmed that flooding the body with oxygen can significantly slow cancer cell growth. A multi-discipline in vivo study conducted at UT Southwestern Medical Center and supported in part by the National Cancer Institute found that when animal models with aggressive tumor growth and low oxygen in their bloodstreams inhaled O2, a “greater delay in tumor growth” occurred. The study researchers deduced that the proven effect oxygen has on cancer cell growth can be a boon for the effectiveness of other cancer treatment modalities. You can use oxygen to help prevent and maybe even help heal cancer right at home. EWOT stands for “Exercise without Oxygen Therapy” and utilizes a specialized oxygen machine in combination with your regular exercise machine. The theory is simple and it works. While you are exercising either on a stationary bike or treadmill, you wear a mask that at first limits oxygen content slightly. As your heart rate excellerates, your arteries and capillaries dilate. Then, with a flip of a switch, you will begin to breathe in pure oxygen which quickly saturates your body with O2. Repeating this cycle multiple times for a total of 15 minutes creates amazing anti-inflammatory effects and will also weaken pathogens in the bloodstream. Studies indicate that EWOT processes may be 20 times more powerful that hyperbaric chambers and may also help people with conditions like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) with shortness of breath and the ability of COPD patients to exercise longer. For cancer prevention and overall breast health, include techniques that infuse your body with oxygen organically, such as daily exercise and wheatgrass supplementation. Also, make sure you are getting enough essential minerals, like magnesium and selenium, which help to carry that all-important oxygen where it needs to go. For Increased Oxygen, Go Back to the Basics These are just a few tips that will help your body and brain receive and efficiently utilize the oxygen that nature supplies in abundance simply in the air we breathe. Other ways to increase oxygen levels include spending time in nature, reducing your exposure to electro-pollution and making sure you drink plenty of water that has been filtered for both basic contaminants and fluoride since fluoride in the bloodstream can actually interfere with the amount of oxygen the body is able to take in. Go back to the basics to get the oxygen your body needs for optimum health and cancer prevention. Breathe deep, get your heart pumping every day and eat a cancer-prevention diet to start enjoying the benefits of oxygen!

It turns out that sex – not love – has the power to literally move mountains. Washington State University’s School of the Environment associate professor and researcher Alex Fremier has discovered that the mating habits of the fish species salmon can bring changes to the profiles of stream beds, thus altering the entire composition of a particular watershed. The study is one of the first to show in a quantitative manner that the activities of salmon can have an effect on the geographical appearance of the land. In the study that was titled “Sex that moves mountains: The influence of spawning fish on river profiles over geologic timescales” that was published in the journal Geomorphology, Fremier says female salmon “fluff” soil and gravel on a river bottom as they create their nests, or redds. Flooding then does away with the stream gravel, resulting in the underlying rock being open to erosion. “The salmon aren’t just moving sediment. They’re changing the character of the stream bed, so when there are floods, the soil and gravel is more mobile,” Fremier says. In collaboration with colleagues at the University of Idaho and Indiana University, Fremier was able to analyze the physical profile of streams that have salmon in them. He noticed that over a period of five million years, those streams gradually started having lower slopes and elevation. “Any lowering of the streambed translates upstream to lower the entire landscape,” Fremier says. In an article that was published in the journal Nature Geoscience in 2012, researchers gave a clear picture of how the banks of shallow rivers and streams in a certain landscape were easily eroded before the area was populated by trees more than 300 million years ago. Fortunately, tree roots stabilized river banks, giving rise to narrow, fixed channels and vegetated islands. The new setting thereby brought forward “an increasingly diverse array of organisms”. In the same manner, salmon can be giving rise to new stream habitats that facilitate the growth and development of new salmon species. This is why streams where the number of salmon have been constantly dropping may find themselves the subject of significant long-term changes in their profile and ecology. “The evolution of a watershed can be influenced by the evolution of a species,” Fremier says. Different salmon species bring about different effects. Chinook salmon can move bigger pieces of material, while coho salmon gravitate towards moving finer material. This diversity in movement can lead to different erosion rates and changes to the landscape, Fremier says. State of Alaska wants to scrap petition to ban projects on salmon habitats The State of Alaska filed an appeal to the Alaska Supreme Court on Friday, October 20 over the proposed ballot initiative 17FSH2, which was filed by the non-profit organization (NGO) Stand for Salmon in May 2017. Stand for Salmon said the proposed ballot initiative seeks to strengthen how salmon habitats are protected, noting, “The initiative proposes simple updates to Alaska’s 61-year-old fish habitat permitting law by establishing clear guidelines that would bring certainty and stability to the permitting process, protecting wild salmon habitat and promoting responsible resource development in a growing and changing Alaska.” However, Alaska Lieutenant Governor Byron Mallott, as recommended by the Department of Law, refused to certify the ballot in September, saying that it is unconstitutional because “the measure precludes the use of even a single waterway for a major development project. Because waters and fish are state assets, only the legislature has authority to choose between conservation and development.” Stand for Salmon sued the state after Mallot refused to certify the proposed ballot initiative. Anchorage Superior Court Judge Mark Rinder earlier this month sided with the NGO, saying that 17FSH2 was constitutional and ordering Mallott’s office to print petition booklets for circulation throughout the state “and make them available to initiative sponsors no later than Oct. 17, 2017.” The state Department of Law was quick to say that petition booklets were printed and given to initiative sponsors. (Related: Wild Salmon to be Extinct in 10 Years.) According to Alaska Attorney General Jahna Lindemuth, in answer to the superior court’s decision, “The question of whether a proposed ballot initiative makes an appropriation is an important constitutional question that should be answered by the Alaska Supreme Court. We take no position on whether 17FSH2 is good policy. This is about the superior court’s legal conclusion and our duty to defend the Alaska Constitution, and we believe the superior court got it wrong.” The Department of Law responded that the State “will request expedited consideration by the Alaska Supreme Court in order to provide clarity before ballots have to be printed for next year’s elections.” Read more stories about ecological science at Ecology.news.

The gallbladder plays a central role in maintaining a healthy digestive profile. This tiny organ is located just below the liver and is essential in releasing bile into the digestive tract in order to metabolize food. Fatty foods are known to negatively impact the organ’s overall health. Cholesterol deposits are shown to trigger the onset of gallbladder stones, which are the crystalline formations that develop in the biliary tract. Gallbladder stones vary in size and chemical composition. A World Gastroenterology Organisation report has revealed that gallbladder stones are increasingly becoming a global health burden. The report has shown that more than 85 percent of people residing in developed countries are diagnosed with cholesterol gallstones. Likewise, the report adds that about 20 million Americans suffer from gallstones. This accounts to about 15 percent of the general population, according to the report. Dr. Manny Alvarez, chairman of the obstetrics/gynecology and reproductive science department at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, has listed 10 telltale signs of gallbladder problems in a Life Zette article. According to the expert, these signs include: Nausea or vomiting — According to the expert, these symptoms go hand-in-hand with other indicators of gallbladder issues. Chest pain — The organ’s location in the upper abdominal area causes pain to resonate in the chest, the doctor said. Abdominal pain after meals — The physician notes that abdominal pain associated with gallbladder problems commonly occur around meal time, especially after a high-fat meal. Fever and chills — Fever and chills are indicative of gallbladder inflammation. Jaundice — Gallstones inhibiting the movement of bile across the body will result in eventual accumulation of bilirubin. Excessive bilirubin concentrations cause the yellowing of the skin or eyes. Intermittent abdominal pain — According to the doctor, abdominal pain associated with gallbladder blockage may last up to several hours but may not happen at regular intervals. The physician explains that the pain might be caused by the organ’s contractions in an attempt to clear the blockage. Heartburn and indigestion — These conditions occur due in part to the digestive tract’s limited ability to effectively metabolize food. Chronic diarrhea — Likewise, chronic diarrhea is caused by the digestive system’s reduced metabolic capacity. Urine/stool color changes — People suffering from gallbladder conditions may observe a darker-colored urine or pale, clay-colored stool. Painful breathing — The gallbladder’s location is also associated with the painful breathing sensation in people who suffer from gallbladder issues. Natural gallbladder detox may help relieve the condition Going for a gallbladder detox is a surefire way of eliminating the unwanted toxins and formation in the organ. Listed below are a few detox tips that may help relieve gallbladder stones. (Related: Overhaul your health by doing a natural gallbladder cleanse.) Drinking apple juice — Experts suggest drinking two glasses of apple juice daily on an empty stomach for two weeks before proceeding with the gallbladder flush. An article featured on the Worldwide Health Center website stresses that certain nutrients found in apple juice help soften and break down the stones. Likewise, the entry suggests that people stay well hydrated during the pre-detox period. It is advisable that patients drink as much as 32 ounces of apple juice in the morning of the actual cleanse. Patients may eat a light breakfast, but are discouraged from eating sugar, dairy, animal protein, or fats. Fasting during the day of cleanse provides the best results. Taking Epsom salt solution — Patients are also encouraged to take a solution containing four tablespoons of Epsom salt in 24 ounces of drinking water, which is to be divided into four six-oz. servings. The first two servings are to be taken at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., while a combination of Epsom salt mixture, grapefruit juice, and olive oil can be taken at 10:00 p.m. Patients are to drink the two remaining six-oz. solutions at 6:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m the next morning. Staying at home — An article posted on the Juicing for Health website advises patients to stay at home during the actual cleanse as bathroom activities are slated to increase. The patients are expected to purge the stones, which could come out as small, greenish pea-sized crystals in the stool. Patients are discouraged from eating dairy and fatty foods for three or four days after the cleanse.
