Blockbuster Book About Danger of GMO Foods

by Howard Jamison on March 8, 2015

Altered-Genes-Twisted-Truth book

Steven Druker has written a landmark and historic book Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public.

This book uncovers one of the biggest scientific frauds of our age. The book also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has broken the law and repeatedly lied in order to bring genetically engineered (GE) foods onto the market without the safety testing that’s required by federal law.

Read some of the pages here Altered Genes Twisted Truth


Reviewers comments:

“Without doubt, one of the most important books of the last 50 years. I shall urge everyone I know who cares about life on earth, and the future of their children, and children’s children, to read it. . . . Steven Druker is a hero. He deserves at least a Nobel Prize.”
Jane Goodall, Ph.D. (from the Foreword)

“Steven Druker has written one of the few books I have encountered, in my many years of public interest work, with the capacity to drive major change in a major issue. What Ralph Nader’s Unsafe at Any Speed was to the auto industry and what Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring was to synthetic pesticides, Altered Genes, Twisted Truth will be to genetically engineered food. It is profoundly penetrating, illuminating, and compelling, and it could stimulate a monumental and beneficial shift in our system of food production.”
Joan Levin, JD, MPH

Demand to know what your are eating and have food labels list GMO foods.

Alternatives to Antidepressants

by Howard Jamison on March 1, 2015


Depression is a symptom, it is not a condition. It’s not an illness; it’s simply a symptom. Contrary to popular belief there are alternatives to antidepressant drugs as stated in the video by Dr. Hyla Cass, a practicing psychiatrist who uses integrative medicine.

Side effects of antidepressants include sexual side effects, lack of emotions or “emotional flatness,” restlessness, sleep disturbances, brain damage, and thoughts and actions of suicide. Virtually all of the school and mass shooters, for example, have been on antidepressants.

Seeing that many of her patients had negative side effects and weren’t improving, Dr. Cass began pursuing the use of nutritional supplements rather than medication.

A huge drawback of the conventional mental health care system is that few doctors take the time to sort out the root cause of the problem with each patient. It’s a lot easier to simply write a drug prescription. Dr. Cass, on the other hand, takes the time to focus on finding, and then treating, the root cause.

Is there an infection? Is there a deficiency? Is there mercury toxicity? Is there a Vitamin B12 deficiency? Is there an iron deficiency? Anemia? Are you sensitive to gluten? You must use extensive testing to uncover the possible cause.

Dr Cass appears regularly on TV and radio shows and is also on The Academy of Functional Medicine and Genomics Advisory Board. She has formulated some unique products for enhancing mind, mood and energy, available at www.cassmd.com.

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”.
