Do You Know Your Egg Ratings?

by Howard Jamison on January 8, 2015

egg ratings We probably all shop for eggs in the market at some point. It is easy to get confused with all the different terms such as Cage-Free, Organic, No Hormones, etc.

Do you know what the labels mean?

Below is an egg label glossary that should help (with a little humor added)

Farm Fresh

What You Might Think It Means: Your friendly local farmer rises at dawn to harvest a dozen (still warm) eggs and puts them into this egg carton, which is rushed to your local store.

What It Actually Means: “It literally means nothing,” says Paul Shapiro, vice president of the Humane Society of the U.S. and an expert on commercial egg production. He says the term is probably meant to think up a favorable image in the consumer’s mind, but it has no substance whatsoever.

All Natural

What You Might Think It Means: Chickens eating a “natural” diet and doing what chickens, you know, naturally do.

What It Actually Means: Once again, this phrase has no real meaning. Shapiro says it’s an ironic term, too, “because [conventional chickens] are raised in the least natural conditions imaginable.”

How exactly are most eggs in the U.S. produced?

According to the Coalition for Sustainable Egg Supply, a group that includes commercial egg producers, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and several universities, 95 percent of eggs in the U.S. come from chickens raised in something called battery cages. These cages house anywhere from four to 12 birds, giving each bird roughly 67 square inches of floor space (that’s about the size of an iPad).

Come Jan. 1, 2015, though, eggs sold in California will have to come from chickens enjoying at least 116 square inches of space.

Wow! Those lucky chickens.

The cages are stacked in long rows, inside massive barns that usually house tens of thousands of birds. They’re typically fed a mixture of corn and feed made from animal byproducts. You can see a video of one such facility here Hen Housing

Commercial egg producers note that this method of production is safe and economical. It’s what keeps egg prices down.

But many animal welfare advocates believe these battery cage facilities are inhumane. “The birds never go outside, are unable to spread their wings, and are essentially immobilized for their entire lives,” says Shapiro.

Ethics aside, this is by far the most common method of egg production. So unless a label tells you otherwise, you can assume this is what you’re buying — even if it’s labeled “Farm Fresh” or “All Natural.”

Neuronutritional Solution to Drug Addiction

by Howard Jamison on January 8, 2015

prescription drugsDrug addiction – including “legal” drugs such as tobacco and alcohol – is usually the “root cause” of death and disability in the world. If we ignore drugs then cardiovascular disease and cancer lead the death statistics.

Various approaches to solving addictions have been tried with marginal success including AA and the 12-step philosophy and other drugs such as Valium or Prozac.

The Brain-Body Connection

Psychotropic chemicals encompass a broad range of substances, including some that are medically prescribed. Whether you know it or not, use of psychotropic chemicals has a simple intent behind it. It is an attempt to replace the brain’s normal “feel-good” chemical messengers called neurotransmitters, in order to achieve their desired effects.

Here’s how they work.

- Most antidepressants artificially boost serotonin (the brain’s “natural Prozac”)

- Ritalin and Adderall work on dopamine (the brain’s “natural cocaine”)

- Ativan and Xanax and other benzodiazepines fit into GABA receptors (the brain’s “natural Valium”)

- Nicotine wiggles into acetylcholine receptors

- Oxycontin and other opioids replace endorphins and enkephalins (the brain’s “natural morphine”)
and

- Annabinoids tweak anadamide and other endocannabinoid receptors (the brain’s “natural marijuana”).

When artificial chemicals are used in this way, the brain naturally adapts to over-stimulation of receptor sites by lowering its production of endogenous, natural neurotransmitters, thus leaving an individual shortchanged when the drug wears off, which is what we call “withdrawal”.

Oncology Nurse Reveals Secrets About Cancer Treatment

by Howard Jamison on December 21, 2014


Oncology Nurse and “whistle blower” Valerie Warwick reveals “secrets” that you should know about cancer treatment. After 17 years she took a huge risk and walked away from a lucrative income because she could not be a part of the conventional cancer industry anymore.

Today she is a health coach and advocate for healing with nutrition and natural non-toxic therapies.

Here are some of the points she covers:

- How doctors profit off of chemotherapy
- Why doctors are not allowed to offer any other therapies
- Essential tests every cancer patient should have
- What every newly diagnosed patient needs to know
- What she learned after working in several alternative clinics
- and more . . .

Is This The “Cure” for Ebola and Other Diseases?

by Howard Jamison on December 8, 2014

You may have never heard of “ozone” or “oxidative” therapy. Dr Robert Rowen is a leading expert on this kind of therapy and claims to have used this method since 1986, longer then any one else in the country.

In an interview with Dr Mercola, Dr Rowen stated that “ozone and ultraviolet therapies are among the most powerful therapies for healing that he had ever seen in his career and it does so by stimulating your own body to heal.”

It is also a very inexpensive treatment method which is something you are not likely to hear in the mainstream media since the pharmaceutical companies want to develop expensive drugs to treat people.

Dr Rowen recently traveled to Africa to train medical personnel to use ozone for treating Ebola. You can listen to another interview after the doctor went to Africa here:
www.bulletproofexec.com/dr-robert-rowen-treating-ebola-ozone-therapy-168/

According to Dr. Rowen, ozone therapy is also very beneficial for heart disease, immune diseases, injuries, osteoarthritis and even some cancers. You can even set up your own home therapy.

Top Rated Yogurts

by Howard Jamison on November 28, 2014

Traderspoint Creamery Yogurt

I am sure most of you have eaten yogurt at sometime in your life but did you know there is such a wide gap in the quality of the different brands on the market?

The Cornucopia Institute recently rated the yogurts on the market and number 1 was Traderspoint Creamery in Indiana.

Years ago I used to eat Dannon and Yoplait as I am sure many others did. But now they are rated near the bottom of the list so you should probably avoid them.

See the ratings here: www.cornucopia.org/yogurt-scorecard

The yogurt scorecard rates brands as a whole, not individual products or flavors.

Yogurt Ratings Categories

Organic Score – Conventional brands receive zero points. Organic brands receive 100 points times the number of cows they received on our dairy scorecard (1-5 cow rating scale). Studies indicate that organic dairy products offer superior nutrition in addition to lower levels of chemical residues.

Thickeners and Stabilizers – Brands that don’t use thickeners or stabilizers (such as carrageenan, guar gum, and pectin) receive 100 points.

Carrageenan – Brands that don’t use carrageenan receive 100 points. Research funded by the National Institutes of Health indicates that carrageenan can act as a potent intestinal inflammatory agent causing a myriad of negative health outcomes, including potential cancer.

Artificial Sweetener(s) – Brands that don’t use artificial sweetener(s), such as aspartame, sucralose, and saccharin, receive 100 points.
