According to Jango.com , Hooverphonic is a Belgian rock/pop group, formed in 1995. Though early on categorized as a trip hop group, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be described as a lone genre, but rather encompass alternative, electronica, electropop, rock, and mixture of others.
Feel the vibe, feel the terror, feel the pain
It’s driving me insane
I can’t fake for God’s sake, why am I
Driving in the wrong laneTrouble is my middle name
But in the end I’m not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you, mad about you, mad
Are you the fishy wine who will give me
A headache in the morning
Or just a dark blue land mine
That’ll explode without a decent warning
Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in our bed
Into never seen passion, never seen passion
That’s why I am
So mad about you, mad about you, mad
Trouble is your middle name
But in the end you’re not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you mad about you
Mad about you mad about you, mad
Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in your bed
Into never seen passion
That is why I am
So mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you, mad about you
A slow juicer is better because “slow” means less friction which translates to lesser heat. You do not want too much heat killing your natural nutrients, iodine, mineral trace elements and digestive enzymes (that keeps you from feeling bloated or to prevent acid reflux).
Instead of re-inventing the wheel, here are some great juicing videos from Youtube so enjoy!
May be this should be under the Hilarious category, for which I currently don’t have. lol WHAT is Bubblews known for, besides famously delaying payments and such? Answer: Crazy stories that either don’t make sense or they make part of a multi-part technical manual! I saw one with as many as 80 parts!
In fact, I had the pleasure of recently reading one woman giving instructions to her science students of what to bring the next day. The only thing is, public are not her students! It leaves you wondering why these people are paid while a handful of good writers (with good stories) are given the blame for some violations they could never explain nor prove.
The following are older snapshots of some Bubblews articles (July 2014 before their newest make-over) that Bubblews actually paid for. (Now, someone tell me why they are paid?)
I did not know that eggs can eat and eat with chickens!
That’s a whole load to write about a tool called PILLOW!
You have no idea who the freak is talking to who the freak, ey, INDIAN PUBLIC? LOL
The special report is missing! 60 idiots loved this article but it could be more since I did not keep track.
I did not know his husband’s friends is MEAT! LOL (And noticed the accompanying picture there that does not belong to the writer. It seems to me that 115 idiots had liked this article!)
I did not know the process of divorce was a talking robot. LOL To make the whole story more interesting, this was a male talking about “her” divorce.
You wonder if the writer meant “he” was 3 months pregnant! LOL “Looking ready to conquer women” repeated once!
You wonder what is “ngelirik” another girl, and what is “next to her passing” (passing motion?) “Brain arranging such a tunnel…” I gather this writer has tunnel vision. 113 idiots liked this article!
Wanna be part of a stupid community that is not ok with solicitations inside bubblews (solicitations to LIKE and comment) but ok with solicitations in Facebook and elsewhere? Don’t mind being taken by surprise when they close your good account and not pay you? Don’t mind being part of the Stupid Writers’ Community? Then, I urge you to join Bubblews soon! 🙂

Updated on 2nd Sept 2014, 10.47pm, Singapore:
More continue to complain of non-payment issues while a handful of bubblews continue to solicite others to visit which is against Bubblews’ rules (monkey see, monkey do)! These snapshots were taken directly fromthe official Bubblews page on Facebook.
Updated on 12th August 2014, 7pm, Singapore: Current bubblers continue to wait and get frustrated of delayed or non-payments while those who had their non-violating accounts discuss them on Bubblews groups. ??When you perform your side of the contract producing content under the TOS, they have to pay, and if they don??t they have to justify the reason for not paying.?? ??> http://www.bubblews.com/news/5434276-missing-payments
11th Aug 2014, 2.30am, in Singapore: A friend just sent this in about Auto-liking and auto-visiting bots for Bubblews. So if you??re wondering if there is a way to game the system, the answer is ??Yes??. And ironically, as much as Bubblews would like to scam honest writers of their money, they in turn are scammed by violators. The video is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytenyqK8Pfw And since Bubblews is using Google Adchoices ads on their sites, they should have a clear link to Google??s page at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
9th Aug 2014, 9.34am, in Singapore: Could this be one of the reasons so many Bubblews members?? accounts were wrongly deleted because of an UNWRITTEN rule of Bubblews? Take a look here! NOW? ¦.whose fault is it, when something like this happens?
Secondly, are bubblews members aware of this? ??> ??An excerpt from the TOS reads:??Bubblews is constantly changing and improving the Site and Revenue Program. We may add or remove functionalities or features of the Revenue Program at any time, and we may suspend or stop the Revenue Program altogether.?? http://www.personapaper.com/article/9735-is-bubblews-planning-to-stop-paying-their-members
Thirdly, it is DAMN ridiculous that Bubblews insist that every post made is 100% unique content because it is impossible to mention some famous quotes or sayings in your posts and having the post 100% unique content. And even IF this was one of their TOUs, they did not state this clearly in their old and new sets of TOU. Again, how is this FAIR for bubblews members ?? to be at the risk of being accused as violating the ??unwritten?? TOU? How are bubblews members protecting themselves from the ??abusive?? administrators or moderators who are quick and eager to delete any one who may have ??violated?? the TOU? 9th Aug 2014, 5.50am, in Singapore: Just been informed that the petition has been taken down! We can only guess what happened.
9th Aug 2014, 5.19am, in Singapore: If you are a victim of Bubblews, please feel free to sign this petition: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/bubblews-non-payment (Many thanks to Paul Pruel for letting us know!)
=== START OF MY STORY ===
I thought My 3 Bullies On Bubblews Were Bad, Until I Also Realised Bubblews Is The Biggest Bully (And Cheat) of them All is No Other than Bubblews. (You will get to see some screenshots of my bullies later on in this post and some shocking things happening within the Bubblews website.)
First of all, Bubblews promises to help the less fortunate by paying them to write, like and comment. They claim to share half of their advertising revenues although I have no idea how they do that if they don??t even know how much each post is earning them. As Bubblews was not responding to my queries, I decided to write a THREATENING post to Arvind (yes, I knew it is against the TOU) but they left me with no choice!
This is not because I waited a week or a few days? ¦this was weeks from the time I just newly joined Bubblews (I joined on 7th July 2014). I was confused as to whether we are paid for just comments received or comments given as well. NO REPLY.
So I wrote in to firstname.lastname@example.org about my issue with my bullies. NO REPLY.
I wrote a complaint in a bubblews post directed to the CEO of bubblews, Arvind Dixit. The title of my post was dated 3rd August 2014: ??If This Is Not Resolved I Am Pretty Sure Bubblews is a Scam??
?? &Arvind (CEO of bubblews), Your support did not respond FOR WEEKS as to the question I sent them about my ??violation warning?? of 15th July, the same day I redeemed for the first time for $128. And now after being offline for 3 days, my bank hub is showing -$4. ??? No emails whatsoever from your side.
How is it that members are held responsible for the TOU you place when they have no answers to them when they ask about it?
1. TOU #1 www.bubblews.com/account/270170-mrk0i is using Chinese model??s pics in her posts. www.139meitu.com/images/h2.JPG at www.bubblews.com/? ¦/4905203-the-bathroom-situation? ¦ at www.bubblews.com/? ¦/4904846-the-bathroom-situation? ¦
Silence is the way they support members? I was warned of Bubblews when I posted my 5th post here, but I refused to believe!
&myqute on Bubblews ??
=== END OF MY STORY ===
The ??F?? rating in BBB.org became a ??C?? within a day on 4th Aug 2014. So, Arvind or someone did respond to the complaint they received via the Better Business Bureau. But still no email from them in sight!
Then, I bumped into one of Bubblews support on Facebook! I will let these snapshots tell the story (the support staff initiated the contact via Facebook private mail) after seeing me ask other bubblers if they received their payments:
SNAPSHOTS of My Bullies in Action
Defamatory is not condoned as per terms of Bubbles but Bullying is Condoned?
This GreatMartin is actually a Kindle author known as Martin Goodkin. Thank goodness I never bought any of his ebooks! LOL
Any way, I don??t see such warnings any where on Bubblews about my bullies getting warnings. My immediate thought was that he could be lying but I remained civil with him.
MY SECOND BULLY ON BUBBLEWS
GreatMartin??s friend CrazyHorseLadyCx Was Disturbing Me About The Health Disclaimers I Previously Have Said Weeks Ago That I Wouldn??t Add To My Health Posts Without Arvind??s ??YES??.
MY THIRD BULLY ON BUBBLEWS
I was told they can??t delete my bullies but they can send them warnings (as mentioned by Manuel King LaGey above). Ok, fine. Too bad the third bully is let off but I am big-hearted, I have not been visiting her posts any way. I was determined to delete any kind of comments she may have commented in my posts. I dislike hypocrites.
How I bumped into one of the Bubblews Member Support Staff, Manuel King Lagey:
I found I could not log into Bubblews any more (since 8th Aug 2014). The only thing I can think of: Bubblews had deleted me. As usual, the deletion of my account and all my posts came with their silent treatment. No EMAIL REPLY to tell me why they thought it fit to delete my account.
What about the promise I??d be paid the $128 (redeemed for period between 7th June to 15th July) by 15th Aug 2014? Should I wait? And I guess there goes my unredeemed portion of about $98 (16th July to 7th August) too!
9 MAIN PROBLEMS OF BUBBLEWS
Side-stepping questions about general questions about TOU (for me, since mid June 2014) and about violation warnings or about ALMOST any thing. My experience with asking about whether a royalty-free Pixabay pic (such as this) would be consider semi-pornographic or against the TOU was met with a silence and a delete of my comment:
This is how they side-step my question through email (also mentioned in my complaint to Arvind):
Bubblews does not know which date you hit the Redeem Button and for how much:
Bubblews Mods break their own TOU. They are also members on the bubblews site although it is obviously stated in Bubblews?? new TOU that this is NOT allowed. Here is one that I had initially thought was a bubblews moderator, she clarified that she is only moderator of a Bubblews group on Facebook.
If Bubblews moderators like Manuel Lagey King can break their own TOU, why should members be made to adhere to the TOU?? Unfortunately, Manuel had deleted his bubblews posts in some Facebook groups before I could get any snapshots. If you have any more info on his bubbles writing account, please do inform (comment)!
Deleting members?? accounts (or posts) without explaining why (same for the MINUS figures in members?? Bank Hub of which they never inform or explain to bubblews members):
Is it not kind of wierd to be deducting a member’s earnings just because either bubblews deleted posts they think should not be on the website? Is it not ethical to be deducting a member’s earnings after member removed the posts when the posts’ sponsored ads have made bubblews money?
Bubblews mods choose at their own will who to promote on Facebook. Would this be considered that not all bubblews members are getting fair treatment?
Bubblews condones the following ?? thanks to mainly these 2 main players, Arvind and Jason who refuse to reply members and allow communication to be open:
b. Slander (as explained in my situation via my bullies)
c. Bullying (as explained in my situation via my bullies)
d. Animal Cruelty (I have the snapshots and I am not showing it to public. May be I will consider releasing this to PETA or the Humane Society of America.)
e. Spreading of LetitBit usernames and passwords
Condoning the REAL VIOLATORS and letting them be on Bubblews while some good members who have never violated get penalized or have their accounts deleted.
Taking advantage of members?? ??lack?? of legal knowledge. If a bubblews member redeemed before 16th July 2014, he/she should be paid within 1 to 3 weeks as that was what their bubblews posts at that time stated. Everyone knew that! They tried to pull the wool over members’ eyes by saying that June 2014 redemptions would take 30 days to pay out just because the newlate July 2014 rules state “30 days”.
Ethical employers always pay on fixed dates, why should Bubblews pay 30 days only AFTER redemption date? Don’t they have the monies to pay? Does this not raise a RED FLAG?
More and more people are waking up to the bubblews scam and almost all of them are outside the U.S.A! This makes sense cos those in the USA can easily pop by their corporate office and they do not want that happening!
And My Last Contact with Bubblews Support before I Approach the Authorities As Promised in My Warning (or Threat) to Arvind. If he think I was joking, I am not.
It??s ok that I am not the only one affected.
It is ok for ME.
Known as &myqute on Bubblews before you deleted her account.
8th August 2014? ³
As for Manuel King Lagey who breeds and sell one month old puppies in the Philippines, I wish him good luck and hope karma will not treat him too badly. For he must be earning quite badly with bubblews that he need to sell puppies that young, although I must say he learnt FAST from the management of Bubblews and that is ??Don??t reply and block out those whose channel of communication is still opened to you!??
If any ONE still thinks that Bubblews only deletes those who violated, that is only half the truth. They are probably deleting many who have not violated any rules!
THINK OF OF IT THIS WAY ?? they have at least 700,000 members. And if bubblews need to pay every member just US$1 a month they will need to have a ready pool of US$700,000 monthly!
The accounts I had reported for violation (scroll up) are still there at the time of this writing on 9th August 2014, while members like me who had violated nothing ?? not even the Big 8 TOU ?? have their accounts deleted without so much of any evidence of TOS violation.
Please report to the authorities if you have been scammed by Bubblews!
2. BBB (although they would probably say I need to be in San Francisco to file a complaint)
4. Bubblews?? cloud servers
5. Bubblews advertising networks And I will also be sharing my experience with Bubblews on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Bubblews is a bully and a scamster BIG TIME without the need to have multi-level marketing in their plans/strategies!
LISTverse.com And no, I earn $0 from recommending you this site! I just want to give a real life example on why you don??t need to rely on a dishonest website for some cash!
Not a good complaint against Bubblews? How about this? ??> You freaking fragments of shit named Arvind Dixit, Manuel King Lagey and the rest ?? stop pissing cheating on members!! Not even your operations manager BRIGGS dare to use his full name on bubblews! I hope you can sleep at night cheating so many of your good members of their hard-earned money! May you and your partners rot in the legal courts soon.
P.S. Ebola already had a cure! Google for Dr. Thomas Levy’s info! But unfortunately, some dishonest businesses have no cure!
The support is poor in this site. I sent dozens of emails and quiries and never get an answer or reply.?? http://expert.expertscolumn.com/article/bubblews-it-legit-or-scam
I am talking about honest writers, who follows the rules to a T. Sure there are many who didn??t get paid for a reason, but many are not getting paid for no reason at all.?? http://www.fanfrelucheblog.com/is-bubblews-a-scam
Anti-Cancer Remedies Shown here are Vegan. Wasp poison, honey etc are not shown.
Anti-Cancer Foods 1. to 6.
In 1911, Dr. August von Wasserman discovered that selenite (selenium) injected into mouse cancer tumors caused them to decompose.
In the 1970s, studies by Dr. Gerhard Schrauzer produced a 70% reduction in breast cancer tumors by adding trace amounts of selenium to the diet.Selenium is a very potent anti-cancer agent. 6 cracked nuts will give you your daily selenium; 100 to 200 mcgs is the goal.
Some foods rich in selenium: €“ brazil nuts €“ sunflower seeds €“ buckwheat bread €“ onions €“ broccolli €“ Broccoli juice helps patient beat bladder cancer http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1036857/Broccoli-juice-helps-patient-beat-bladder-cancer.html €“ tomatoes
Sunflower seeds also contain anti-cancer €œPinoresinol-Lariciresinol€.
Other garlic have shown that it kills insects, parasites, bad bacteria, and fungi. It also eliminates various cancerous tumors, lowers blood sugar levels, lowers harmful fats in the blood, and prevents clogging of the arteries.
Not made from assumptions and guesses but backed up with laboratory tests as evidence of this.
Anti-Cancer Food #12. Grapeseed extract kills head and neck cancer cells, leaves healthy cells unharmed. There’s no need to wait for the extract, just eat the grapeseed fruit! http://medicalxpress.com/news/2012-01-grape-seed-neck-cancer-cells.html
Anti-Cancer Food #16 to #18.
Researchers have also shown that €œallicin€ (garlic) (the organic compound which gives garlic its aroma and flavor) acts as a very potent antioxidant. Some of these anti-cancer enzymes come from raw (uncooked) foods.
Foods that contain allicin: bananas, avocados, green leafy vege (all uncooked), sesame seeds, nuts, herbs, spices, garlic.
Researchers have found that there are compounds in avocados that can inhibit the growth of cancerous cells in the prostate. In some other lab studies oleic acid in avocados has been proven to kill breast cancer cells.
There’s an enormous body of research evidence now that shows how medicinal mushrooms (Shiitake, Maiitake, Cordycepsp etc) boost the immune system and fight cancer. Even the button mushroom has cancer fighting ingredients! Ref: Deng G, Lin H, Seidman A, Fornier M, D €˜Andrea G, Wesa K, Yeung S, Cunningham-Rundles S, Vickers AJ, Cassileth B. A phase I/II trial of apolysaccharide extract from Grifola frondosa (Maitake mushroom) in breast cancer patients: immunological effects. J Cancer Res Clin Oncol. 2009 [March 1. Epub ahead of print]
Anti-Cancer Foods #28. Baking Soda against cancer: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=175320529188379&set=a.175320512521714.50471.100001312988366&type=1
Cancer patients usually have an acidic body environment of 6 and lesser, a healthy body has a 7.4 pH value. The baking soda ONLY helps to re-balance the slightly pH value of your body’s environment, caused by frequent consumption of meat and processed meats for example. So if a cancer is caused by frequent smoking or by frequent contact with products that causes cancer (eg. paraben-containing lipstick or cream), baking soda may be of little help.
One needs to approach cancer cures realistically €“ find the root cause and then the solution.

Anti-Cancer Foods #35. Thunder God Vine, a herb, annihilates cancer in 40 days. https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=489230667816517&id=438021249604126&set=a.440096002729984.103893.438021249604126&refid=17&ref=stream http://www.naturalnews.com/040314_thunder_god_vine_cancer_tumors.html
Glucose molecules contains carbon monoxide, but glucose don’t kill you. And here’s why cyanide in apricot seeds will not kill you, if you know what you are doing.
Natural cyanide (exist in seeds of most fruits but apricot seeds have the highest amount of cyanide) kills cancer cells without affecting healthy cells. This is because healthy cells have a non-penetratable shield that cyanide cannot attack.
Vitamin B-17 is active in apricots. It raises temperature in the body €“ like fever €“ to kill cancerous cells. (This is partially why the first symptoms of cancer is frequent fever as the body tries to use fever to kill cancer cells.) Natural cyanide is not poisonous if taken in safe amounts and when you keep to a diet without pro-biotics (the reason is mentioned below).
Seeds of acidic fruits contain cyanide and healthy cells are immune to safe amounts cyanide because they produce an enzyme that negates effects of cyanide. Cyanide goes on to kill only the cancerous cells ??something that chemo is NOT able to do because it kills healthy cells as well.
In the USA, the B-17 or laetrile injections are banned for sale. But you can have them by ingesting seeds of apricots, lemons, limes, cherries, apples, prunes and pears. The heavier you are, the more seeds you can take. (Cyanide poisoning you read online is due to ingesting HUNDREDS of these seeds!)
Up to 50 apricot seeds per adult per day is ok and not toxic. In children, up to 20 seeds.
[ In news that you read people dying from eating apricot seeds are mainly hearsay. Actual reports fail to inform the real number of apricot seeds taken. Of course, you can die of consuming hundreds of apricot seeds a day since Vitamin B-17 can raise body temperature. ]
For normal people *not diagnosed with cancer, we can take between 4 to 9 seeds a day without any poisoning. It keeps cancer cells in check.
People already on chemo should not be on these seeds because for every cancerous cells killed by chemo, 256 cells die. There may be many cancerous cells in one tumour, so imagine how many healthy cells die in every chemo session!
Finally, apricot seeds should not be consumed with probiotics (mentioned a little earlier on), including raw cultured vegetables like fermented saurkraut or the Korean kimchi as probiotics tend to increase the strength of cyanide. You just want cyanide to work with its normal strength against cancer ??let nature work its miracle with as little interference as possible.
If you are unsure of administering apricot seeds (ground to powder and added to your fav drink), approach a qualified nutritionist or holistic doctor.
Please TAKE NOTE: do consult a herbalist before taking licorice roots, it’s been known for side-effects in some people, namely cause high blood pressure or depletes potassium. (I would say that Licorice Root should be one of the last natural anti-cancer foods one should try as a €œlast resort€.)
Anti-Cancer Foods #49. Flax Seeds. Anti-cancer €œPinoresinol-Lariciresinol€ is ?found in ?flax seeds. Lignans, a powerful phytonutrient found in flaxseeds, may have the power to slow or stop breast cancer.
€œWomen with breast cancer who increased their intake of lignans were able to extend their lives ?? sometimes dramatically.
So researchers decided to give a group of breast cancer patients a daily dose of flaxseed, which has up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods, and the results weren’t just dramatic ?? they might actually save your life or the life of someone you know.
Study volunteers started each day with a muffin that included either a placebo or nutrient-packed flaxseed. After just ONE MONTH of a daily diet of flaxseed, breast cancer patients saw their cancers spreading more slowly and their tumors actually shrinking. The seeds were actually KILLING their cancer cells.
Flaxseed could be a game-changer. It could have the power to permanently alter the way we treat breast cancer, and may help women find relief from the twin heartbreaks of radiation and surgery.€
That means all green leafy (but uncooked) vegetables have the potential to kill cancer.
Anti-Cancer Foods #53 to #56.
Dacryodes edulis fruit, Moringa oleifera and Syzygium aromaticum were named as foods containing polyphenols ?that kill prostate cancer. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3194188/
Anti-Cancer Foods #57 to 59.
A research published by American Association for Cancer Research (2006) found that Capsaicininhibits the growth of Androgen-Independent, p53 Mutant Prostate Cancer Cells. (Capsaicin is found in chillies (chili), bell peppers (jalapeno) and cayenne pepper.)
Led by Dr. Timothy Bates of Nottingham University, researchers found capsaicin attacks tumour cells’ source of energy, and initiates cell-suicide but left the healthy non-cancerous cells alone and in optimum conditions.
Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute worked in collaboration with The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to discover Capsaicin’s ability to destroy a significant amount of the developed cancer cells. Capsaicin also arrested the development of the cancer tumours.
Capsaicin destroyed about 80% of the developed cancer cells growing inside mice. Tumour size significantly reduced by 20%.
Anti-Cancer Foods #60.
Graviola €“ another word for the fruit known as SOURSOP.
Some cancer foundations say that GRAVIOLA is not tested on humans, but isn’t it the same for the thousands of other anti-cancer meds prescribed to patients €“ many of them are not done on humans?
It’s funny because even doctors push GRAVIOLA (soursop) as anti-cancer. Dr. Ray Sahelianwould long been in legal hot soup if he promoted something that was not anti-cancer. http://www.raysahelian.com/graviola.html
Annonaceous acetogenins are long chained fatty acid derivatives extracted from different tropical plants such as the tree Annona muricata, also known as Graviola. It has been recently shown that Graviola extracts exert multiple anticancer activities on pancreatic cancer cell models.
Additionally, graviola contains allicin, which is anti-cancer.
To understand Graviola’s interactions with other drug consumption, please check out http://www.noahsnaturalfoods.ca/ns/DisplayMonograph.asp?StoreID=25253c03182e4524acddb4f565e2742f&DocID=bottomline-graviola
Chrysin, which is a flavanoid found in the flower of the Passion Fruit, was discovered to be the most effective of all the flavonoids tested. In fact, it was found to be equal in potency to the some cancer drugs, specifically aromatase inhibiting drug used to treat hormone sensitive cancers. Chrysin, from flower of the passion fruit, provides several other cancer fighting benefits not found in drugs. Ref: http://www.naturalnews.com/026086_cancer_drug_chrysin.html
Researchers from University of Florida found that the carotenoids (predominantly zeta-carotene) and polyphenols of passion fruit extract could kill cancer cells in vitro.
€œOverall, we have demonstrated that passion fruit juice might not be as beneficial by inhibiting the cancer cell cycle because of the large solvent effect noticed. The results did however, show that fractions of passion fruit juice was capable of inducing apoptosisand decreasing cell viability of MOLT-4 leukemia lymphoma. € €“ http://etd.fcla.edu/UF/UFE0001209/deneira_c
Passion fruits are also eaten to calm anxiety, and is being studied for insomnia (sleeplessness).
You can find more information of passion fruits and other herbs in the book, The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs ?which is a FAR CRY from EFSA’s €œCompendium of botanicals reported to contain naturally occuring substances of possible concern for human health when used in food and food supplements€. Ref: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal/doc/2663.pdf Why is EFSA not going after those who may be placing questionable fillers, preservatives, artificial food colourings etc?
Passion fruits’ other names: Apricot Vine, Passiflora Incarnata, Passiflora Edulis Sim (purple passion fruit, Israel), Maracuja (Portuguese), Maracuy, Granadilla (South America and South Africa), Lilikoi (Hawaiian), Chanh Day or Leo Chanh (Vietnamese).
Anti-Cancer Foods #72. Arugula. Like other cruciferous vegetables, arugula has high levels of a sulfur-containing compound called glucosinolate. According to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, chopping as well as chewing arugula turns glucosinolates into indoles and isothiocyanates, which have cytotoxic effects on cancer cells and may help to protect against breast, prostate, cervical and ovarian cancers.
In a scientific review published in 2004 in Mutation Research, Yuesheng Zhang, M.D., PhD., of the Department of Chemoprevention at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York, evaluated existing laboratory and animal studies and asserted that isothiocyanates have multiple anti-carcinogenic mechanisms, including inhibiting cancer-activating enzymes and arresting the progression of cancer cells.

Anti-cancer Food #84. The Syrian Rue aka P. Harmala
#anticancer #herb €œ€¦harmine, found in P. harmala (aka Syrian Rue), has appreciable efficacy in destroying intracellular parasites in the vesicular forms.€ In simple terms, the herb is anti-cancer but must be taken in right €œorder€ for it to be efficient and safe (the info is in my blog MyQute.com/blog under (D) for Ayahuasca cleansing). Great historical and miscellaneous info on the herb:Herbalsatt.blogpot.com and Sharif.edu
Do you know€¦The roots and outer covering of the seeds of the Syrian Rue (Peganum harmala) €“ from eastern Iranian region west to India €“ are also anti-cancer. Unlike the Ayahuasca, it does not cause nausea, nor contain tetrahydroharmine.
This herb is not prohibited anywhere in the U.S.A. but is prohibited in Australia. But no more than 250 mg should be taken, and should only be taken on an empty stomach.
250 mg is VERY little needed a it is not even one gram. Over-dosage can be fatal ref: http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.1080/15563650701323205?journalCode=ctx
The irony is, Syrian Rue is used for fetal abortion. The seeds are very effective in paralyzing tapeworm parasites.
Ref: €œIn conclusion, the present study of the cytotoxic and antiproliferative effects in experimental models of cancer show that the TAF and three of the four alkaloids (harmine, harmalacidine and vasicinone) isolated from the seed extract of P. harmala have significant in vitro cytotoxic activity in tumor cell line.€ €“ http://applications.emro.who.int/imemrf/Pak_J_Pharm_Sci/Pak_J_Pharm_Sci_2013_26_4_699_706.pdf
Anti-cancer Food #85.
€œStudies have also shown this Asian wonder-herb to be a potent anti-inflammatory, to lower blood sugar and cholesterol (in mice) as well as lower cholesterol in some people which may make it helpful against diabetes and heart disease. Lemongrass is used prolifically in Thailand both as a natural medicine and in the daily diet, which may help explain why Thailand has colon cancer rates less than half that of the USA or Japan.€ €“ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9163680
Anti-cancer XANTHONES are found in Mangosteens. and they have shown effectiveness especially against colon cancer. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16112579
Anti-Cancer Foods #87 to #89:
Cabbage, Red Pepper, Lettuce.
Phenolics antioxidants found in common vegetables are also anti-cancer.
€œBroccoli possessed the highest total phenolic content, followed by spinach, yellow onion, red pepper, carrot, cabbage, potato, lettuce, celery, and cucumber. Red pepper had the highest total antioxidant activity, followed by broccoli, carrot, spinach, cabbage, yellow onion, celery, potato, lettuce, and cucumber€¦
The phenolics antioxidant index (PAI) was proposed to evaluate the quality/quantity of phenolic contents in these vegetables and was calculated from the corrected total antioxidant activities by eliminating vitamin C contributions. Antiproliferative activities were also studied in vitro using HepG(2) human liver cancer cells. Spinach showed the highest inhibitory effect, followed by cabbage, red pepper, onion, and broccoli.€ €“ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12405796
Anti-cancer Food #90. Blushwood Berries. Blushwood trees are known to grow only in far Northern part of Queensland (Australia).
Anti-cancer Food #91. Watercress shows effectiveness against Prostate Cancer. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24685270 Originally shared byThe Eden Prescription This (non-vegan) blog has some good info on watercress and advises correctly not to overcook the watercress: http://teczcape.blogspot.sg/2010/06/watercress-soup.html In fact, you can eat some raw like lettuce after it’s properly washed of pesticide residue etc. Vegans can cook watercress with your beans. YUM!
Anti-cancer Food #92. Wormwood herb aka Artemisinin
€œGuess what is deadlier than cancer? It is the treatment the patients undergo to get rid of it. The side effects are devastating. They suck out the patients’ spirit and energy. They drag patients into the holes of hell, and sometimes, the victims never come out.€ €“ http://www.healthbeckon.com/wont-believe-chinese-herb-can-cure-cancer-better-medicine-true/

And surgeries like biopsies can actually spread cancer.
Stem cell therapy encourages chimerism (parasitic twins and unexplained lumps mistaken for cancer cos doctors are not sure what makes the lump grow). READ UP!! Chemo and tumour removals are not cancer patients’t only options!
I believe this as I have known of one Singaporean lady whose throat cancer was cured through diet of nothing but fruits and veggies, and several other Singaporeans who reversed cancer through diet alone. Her oncologist said to her, €œThen it must be a wrong diagnosis, it wasn’t cancer!€
DENY DENY!! The cancer industry are very good at denying what works and what do not!
Do you want to be the 1 in 5,000 to die from a Liver Biopsy
A liver biopsy procedure that damages the gallbladder by mistake may lead to leakage of bile into the abdominal cavity, causing peritonitis. Fortunately, the risk of death from liver biopsy is extremely low, with a mortality of 1 in 5,000.€ €“ http://www.liver.ca/liver-disease/diagnosing-liver-disease/liver-biopsy.aspx
Diagnosis (through breast cancer screening) may give false positives (meaning, the woman who had the masectomy did not actually have any cancerous cells). Chimera is often mistaken as cancer (chimera occurs in people who had or whose parents had blood transfusions and ends up with 2 sets of DNA, the DNA go on to grow lumps of parasitic twins in the body that is mistaken for cancer). Lumps may be removed but they are not cancerous. Ask for a masectomy refund??
And secondly, biopsies and masectomies can also spread cancer cells. If you stick a needle into a tumor, you run the risk of dislodging a tumor cell into either a blood vessel or into the interstitial fluid.
A survey of histological studies reveals that there is a clear danger of seeding needle tracks with malignant cells displaced in breast stroma or in lymphovascular channels, associated with the traumatic effects of a needling procedure, according to Dr. Rosen, Department of Pathology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Consequently, Dr. Rosen warns that with tissue disruption, lymphatic and vascular channels may also be breached, and it is
conceivable that detached epithelial fragments may enter vascular channels and perhaps even be transported to lymph nodes.

According to the New York Times:
€œ€¦there are no mandated diagnostic standards or requirements that pathologists performing the work have any specialized expertise, meaning that the chances of getting an accurate diagnosis vary from hospital to hospital.
Upon receiving a breast cancer diagnosis, most women are afraid and even frantic to do whatever it takes to fight and remove the cancer. In the conventional medical arena, typically this means full or partial mastectomy, drugs and radiation.
Imagine going through a surgery, having one or both of your breasts removed along with receiving debilitating radiation treatments and toxic drugs, only to be told that you never had cancer.
The diagnosis was a mistake. € -http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/08/07/mammography-leads-to-misdiagnosis-and-unnecessary-mastectomies.aspx
On using mice to test RAPAMYCIN:
Q: If this doesn t turn out the way you wanted it to there are still other drugs you can explore?
Dr. Tyler Curiel, MD, professor of medicine at the University of Health Science Center, San Antonio answers: Oh, absolutely. If this first set of experiments fails partially or in whole that still in no way will dissuade us from continuing to study this drug and from continuing to study the pathways that we think it affects. Because rapamycin clearly makes mice live longer, we just need to understand how exactly it works.
Is rapamycin the best drug to dothat? Is it the safest drug to do that? It would surprise me if the path they we re looking at doesn’t really make you live longer or help prevent cancer. It wouldn t surprise me at all if we find out Rapamycin is not the best drug to do that.
Rapamycin and Curcumin induces death in LEUKEMIA (cancer of blood)?http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19373661

== A SPECIAL SECTION ON ANGELINA JOLIE’s NEEDLESS DOUBLE MASECTOMY ==
Going by Angelina Jolie’s example, men too, should have their breasts cut because ALL HUMANS have the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes! #cancer
Most inherited cases of breast cancer are associated with two abnormal genes: BRCA1 (BReast CAncer gene one) and BRCA2 (BReast CAncer gene two). But guess what? Everyone has BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, normal BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Angelina Jollie was duped. Yes.
So, are you now duped? Wanna remove your breasts? Males can get breast cancer too.
Should we also cut our chromosomes out since they are linked to breast cancer? >> Having an abnormal BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene doesn’t mean you will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Researchers are learning that other mutations in pieces of chromosomes called SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) may be linked to higher breast cancer risk in women with an abnormal BRCA1 gene as well as women who didn’tinherit an abnormal breast cancer gene.
6 Reasons to Avoid (Dairy) Milk http://www.naturalcuresnotmedicine.com/2013/03/6-reasons-to-avoid-milk.html More info in my anti-cancer note: https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=399764940047511&refid=21
CAFO cows (mass treated cows not wild-fed ??) produces more IGF-1 hormones in milk.
A very bad article at http://www.menshealth.com/mhlists/dairy_products/Do_Hormones_Make_Milk_Unhealthy.php
So drinking milk from hormone-treated cows doesn’t transfer the active form of these chemicals to your body.
My response: Are you sure? So if there’s protein in milk, I wouldn’t get them in my body too? I also wouldn’t get cow antibiotics in my milk into my body? And what does the INACTIVE form of chemical do inside my body?
UPDATED on 3rd May 2013:

Thank you for your contact, I must say I do not read Chinese websites myself although I was schooled in it as my 2nd language. It is truly admirable when you try to find easier ways for life-saving information to reach your friends.
I cannot promise that the sites I recommend are vegan websites but here are 2 to start with:

McDonald’s Made Me Lose My Appetite
(This used to be an old blog post I found via WayBackMachine.org) As much as I used to like their curly fries, I can’t believe they are calling their French fries and fast food free from trans-fat . People often forget that vegetable oil in its natural form and fried form is different. Molecules change. Trans-fatty oil is bad for the heart €” no doubt about this.
1. For 15 grams of fat from Filet O Fish, you’re getting 0 gram in proteins (and almost zero carbohydrates). If it’s any consolation, you’re getting 18grams of fat, 44 grams of carbohydrates and 14 grams of protein from Mcchicken. For a McSpicy Burger, you’re getting 26 grams of fat, 65 grams of carbohydrates and 23 grams of protein. It seems the higher the protein you get from McDonald’s fast food, the more fat you are also ingesting.
2. And if you’ve been keeping track of food news, you’ve also probably have heard and seen videos of McDonald’s burgers keeping for months (in someone’s jacket hung in the store room and forgotten for months). Yes, keeping as in €œno decay€.
3. It could be the nitrate (it’s chemically processed salt, the common salt you use at home) that allows McDonald’s burgers to keep so long! McDonald’s PR said it’s the fat that helps keeps meat patties fresh. Guess what €“ TBHQ, a preservative, is also said to be found in McDonald’s soil. McDonald’s TBHQ Laced Nuggets Sold in the U.S. but not in Europe. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t want to eat anything that does not go bad for months, you might as well be eating transfatty margarine. This stuff (margarine or hydrogenated fat) will not decompose for months even if you leave it out there in the open in room temperature. You’ll also notice that flies won’t be attracted to margarine. (It won’t matter if margarine is partially or fully hydrogenated or vegan, as long as a vegetable oil or butter is hydrogenated, it’s trans-fat.)
4. There’s this question of RENDERED beef fat. Does it contain euthanized pets’remains or some diseased corpse of a cow? Farms in America get money for every dead cow rendered into rendered fat or some protein feed for animals, and this is totally legal. Rendered beef fat may also contain oil from goats and pigs, making it quite HARAM for Muslims. (KFC in USA is known to use rendered beef fat for grilled chicken burgers.)
5. Anyway, I have to applause McDonald’s for being brave on its label.
I wonder why can’t people choose ethical food businesses to make their own living? So when you eat a chicken burger, remember you may be eating chicklets’ fur and all toxins from their intestines. You just have to €œthank€ BurgerKing (and the likes) for glorifying meat in their TV commercials! Where do you think cows get their Protein without eating Meat

PEOPLE DO NOT GET CANCER JUST BECAUSE THEY DID NOT TAKE ASPIRIN!
I remember the hospital doctor at NUH giving me an irritated response when I asked her if aspirin is panadol.] ? She had pushed aspirin for all her patients who had a stent inserted. ] ? (This kind of doctors are the ones who do not wish you to empower yourself with knowledge!)
Think about it – what sort of stent will not be soon covered by plaque? It’s just very important to eat right and not allow sticky sugary and hardened calcium from covering and irritating the wall of your veins and arteries. What’s even more stupid than stents? Dyed Stents (I wonder why!)
No one knows what other foods (besides cranberries) can react negatively to statins. But the good news is, there are many natural foods out there which are naturally anti-coagulating (discourages clots in blood which may lead to a heart failure or stroke).
Diabetic sufferers do not need to LIVE WITH diabetes, they can reverse it! Yes, diabetes type 2 can be reversed.
My mum’s diabetes Type 2 was reversed in 5 months, just with a change of diet, following the advise of DeWayne McCulley’s Death to Diabetes (book) and SIMPLY RAW: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days (DVD). They’re just so life-saving, could save you thousands of dollars for amputations alone (gangrene is common n diabetic patients).
In fact, I bought the above-mentioned 3 years before my mum “caught” diabetes, and at that time, I uploaded these pics and info to my Facebook album: ” Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com recovered from Diabetes Type II without ‘medicine’…”
Back to what I was saying about my mother… She was diagnosed as borderline diabetes for many years. And I could see why – she was consuming a lot of sugary milk for her coffee. (I also predicted my grandaunt’s bronchitis (she’snot living with me and has never been under my care) a few years before she caught it, but that is another story. lol ?)
My mother’s ?first symptoms (pre-symptoms) of diabetes, besides being overweight, was cataracts. (Putting on weight is VERY easy if you eat meat regularly too. Google for news on MILK CAUSES DIABETES.)
When blood is sticky and does not flow around the eyes in the manner they should, cataracts will form.
Feeling numb or not having any feelings when touched are also symptoms of diabetes because diabetes is more than an “excess sugar” weakening or damaging the pancrea (pancrea has to convert excess sugar to fat by creating and using the hormone “insulin”.)
In severe diabetes or diabetes Type 1, the nerves simply ? lose their ability to communicate with organs. In injured limns, the nerves in diabetic flesh starts to die and rot. This explains why a fraction of diabetic people go on to develop gangrene and have their limbs amputated.
If you are health-conscious, or are borderline diabetes or already have diabetes, I ?highly recommend you pick either an anti-diabetes book or DVD that includes a Diet Healing Plan (pic show above). The healing plan is insulin-free, as in ‘no reliance of insulin to get well’. DeWayne McCulley went against his very experienced endocrinologist to reverse himself of Diabetes.
For example, I learned that CINNAMON SUGAR (ground from cinnamon sticks) are the most diabetes-friendly sugar there is. Not your Splenda, no! (That will be another topic! lol ? ) ?Studies have revealed that it is dangerous to inhale it, but as a form of sugar for diabetes, it’s excellent and does not spike blood glucose levels.
You could learn a lot through life-saving products! ?Even doctors DON’T KNOW half of these stuff!
A LITTLE ABOUT DEWAYNE MCCULLEY HERE…
WHAT made DeWayne McCulley create his DEATH TO DIABETES Book LOADS of church-goers, friends and strangers were asking him how he reversed his diabetes, so much so that he was giving out free talks about it in churches. With the encouragement of his daughter and friends, the idea for his book, was thus, born and placed into fruition!
A text in a bible + info given to him by his daughter + his later mother (who helped him to clear out the canned junk food from his kitchen) + his determination not to allow his Diabetes Type 2 to escalate to Type 1 , kept DeWayne focused on FINDING that diabetes reversal method. And by God’s blessings, he did!
Don’t be surprised if you also find that the raw vegan foods recipes or related recipes found in my recommended products (above) are so yummy and anti-cancer! You know why? Because ?only LIVING cells from LIVING whole foods nourish, repair and maintain HUMAN LIVING CELLS! FACT!
No canned or processed foods are going to do that for you. (There are several more compelling reasons to avoid processed and fast foods but that will be another topic.)
I’ll post another day why WHEAT and Fructose (not whole fruits) is so unhealthy for diabetes sufferers and normally healthy people. Ciao!
There’s an Indian lady near my place that actually started grinding FRESH white coconut flesh to sell. She sells for $2 per 500 grams.
Here’s the recipe for fruity tiramisu cake – no bake and gluten-free!
A. Coconut milk + cinnamon powder + vanilla beans + cocoa powder – all whipped in a cold bowl for about 2 minutes. That will be your ?non-diary whipped cream.
Some people like to add dark rum, but I prefer mine rum-free.
B. Amaranth flour or buckwheat flour, potatoes or avocados for starch (if you want firmer raw cookies), coconut flesh, cinnamon powder, vanilla beans. All mashed and these will make your raw cookies. They should be refrigerated for 30 to 60 mins before you start to shape them.
C: Pineapples or strawberries (or any fruits you like) – diced.
Layer them in order from bottom up: b, c, b, a, c.
You can top fruit tiramisu with crushed almonds or peanuts or chocolate chips. A nut crust can be made with various nuts (eg. walnuts, hazel nuts, pecans, etc) with some organic coconut oil.
ALL SWEET without any preservatives and artificial flavouring!
Get your kids involved in making more raw vegan foods. It’s fun and healthy!
4. CARNAUBA WAX. A Professor of Biochemistry and a specialist in Toxicology and ?Pharmacology has this to say about carnauba wax: Carnauba wax is in the covering of M&M’s and hundreds of pills. Waxes are inert by nature. It melts way above body ?temperature and we can’t digest it.
“Based on the available data and the lack of structural alerts on carnauba wax it was ?concluded that there is no concern for genotoxicity for carnauba wax. Subchronic and ?reproductive and developmental toxicity studies did not showed adverse effects relate to carnauba wax intake….the Panel considered that long-term toxicity data on carnauba ?wax were lacking…” – http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal/doc/2880.pdf
2. SODIUM HEXAMETAPHOSPHATE is an essential nutrient, but when consumed without the ?balance of other minerals, may affect kidneys, heart and bones. In animal studies, the ?following effects were reported (when consumed with pet food containing sodium ?hexaphosphate): pale and swollen kidneys, increased kidney weights, bone ?decalcification, muscle fiber size changes, hyperplasia and severe skin irritations. – ? http://www.befoodsmart.com/ingredients/sodium-hexametaphosphate.php
3. SODIUM BENZOATE – harmless UNTIL it interacts with vitamin c in the body. Please ?do your own research!
1. EVODIA EXTRACT contains some chemicals that affects pregnant animals. These ?chemicals cause the animals’ uterus to contract and also seem to reduce the size of the ?litter. It’s not known if evodia affects pregnant women (humans).
3. CORN SILK can decrease potassium levels in the blood and can cause skin rashes, itching, and allergies.
-4. Gunggul Z& E Extract is popularly used to lower bad cholesterol (lipid regulatro) and weight-loss. However gunggul can cause side effects such as stomach upset, headaches, nausea, vomiting, loose stools, diarrhea, belching, and hiccups. Guggul can also cause allergic AND non-allergic reactions such as rash and itching. (These adverse reactions are more common with higher doses, such as 6000 mg per day.)
As such, Gunggul should not be used beyond 75 weeks. I do not see this warning on a lot of supplements such as the ones marketed by LiveSmart360. Pic Source
Guggul is also likely to be UNSAFE during pregnancy. It seems to encourage menstrual flow and stimulates the uterus, so some researchers worry that it might endanger the pregnancy and induce an unwanted abortion if consumed.

Here is an article from author Lee Eula titled “This Common Metal May Foster Breast Cancer and Other Diseases”
“You can use thin sheets of this metal to wrap and store your foods… and you might even use pans made from it to cook the food you’re storing.
What’s more, you may drink many of your favorite beverages out of cans made from it …”
But the truth is, your body doesn’t need it, and a new study suggests this metal could increase the invasive spread of breast cancer cells! Keep reading, and I’ll explain what it is and why it may be damaging…
What is it? Based on the clues above, you may have guessed that I’m talking about aluminum – ?the metal that makes up about eight percent of the Earth’s crust.
Because both soil and water contain aluminum, most foods you eat will contain microscopic amounts of the metal. Taking in small amounts of aluminum won’t necessarily harm you.
…but soil and water won’t be the only sources of the metal in your foods.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given its stamp of approval to a host of food additives that contain aluminum.
Check your food labels and you’re likely to see any one of the following items the FDA has placed on its list of “Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS)” substances:
This is another good reason to avoid prepared and processed foods, and to prefer meals you prepare yourself from fresh, raw ingredients.
But food additives are not the only source of aluminum in our industrialized society. You can also wind up ingesting or absorbing excess aluminum by using everyday items ranging from cookware and utensils to deodorant!
Aluminum toxicity can cause muscle weakness, bone pain, osteoporosis, dementia and seizures. It’s often mentioned as a principal cause of Alzheimer’s disease, although I haven’t seen conclusive evidence of that. Like cancer, Alzheimer’s appears to have multiple causes.
So what makes this natural element carcinogenic?
You should know that aluminum is a metal that mimics estrogen. The last thing anyone needs is excess estrogen building up in their bodies ?the real thing or an imitation!
Both sexes need this hormone to regulate growth and metabolism. But some kinds of estrogen are harmful while others are beneficial.
Your body naturally produces the good form of estrogen called 2-hydroxy estrogen. But it might surprise you to know that in December 2003, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) added estrogen to its list of known carcinogens!
The group said There’s strong evidence linking the natural hormone to cancers of the breast, endometrium, and uterus.
Substances like aluminum that mimic estrogen in your body are called xenohormones. These synthetic forms of estrogen are just about everywhere in the environment. You can’t escape them because they’re found in:
Car exhaust Carpeting, Rugs, Furniture, Perfume, Plastics, Room deodorizers, Soaps
When estrogen (or substances that mimic estrogen) enter your bloodstream, they can change how your body produces and metabolizes natural hormones.
Too much estrogen can cause hot flashes, mood swings, and weight gai.
But worse than that too much of the wrong kind of estrogen has been linked to health issues ranging from decreased libido and heart problems to cancer!
New studies suggest aluminum may cause tumor cells to spread
Laboratory studies have shown that aluminum can damage your DNA. And (keeping things simple) damaged DNA can lead to cancer. The problem is that no studies show a direct causal link between aluminum and breast cancer risk.
But one new study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry clearly associates aluminum exposure with an increase in the ability of breast cancer cells to migrate and invade tissue.
This finding is important because breast cancer deaths typically are caused by the spreading of cancerous tumor cells not just the presence of a tumor in its original site.
Scientists have shown that aluminum can concentrate in breast tissue. Its highest levels often are found in the breast quadrant near your underarm.
Maybe it’s not a coincidence that this is the same area where doctors find the highest proportion of breast cancer.
The same journal recently published another study in which the nipple fluids of 19 breast cancer patients had increased aluminum levels when compared with 16 healthy patients.
Commenting on the results, the researchers said they see “aluminum accumulation in breast microenvironment as a possible risk factor for oxidative/inflammatory phenotype of breast cells.” As a layperson, I may be misunderstanding their language, but the article seems to be saying aluminum ions create an inflammatory environment in the breast that’s conducive to the growth of cancer.
Although animal studies have yet to establish a solid link between aluminum and cancer, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that aluminum production is carcinogenic to humans. Workplace exposure can be particularly dangerous.
The sad truth is that until the animal studies prove beyond a doubt that overexposure to aluminum causes cancer, scientists and the FDA will insist it’s still safe to eat in foods to apply to your skin in deodorants and body creams, and to squirt into your body in vaccines.
But you can take some simple steps to reduce your exposure to aluminum. For starters, try swapping out aluminum pots and pans for stainless steel or cast iron cookware.
And instead of using aluminum cooking utensils, try stainless steel or wooden ones instead. You could also swap out aluminum-based deodorants for ones that use more natural ingredients such as tea tree oil or baking soda. Thai crystal deodorant stones (and similar stones from other manufacturers) are absolutely the best deodorant I’ve ever found. They’re available in most health food stores.
These might seem like small changes. But when it comes to protecting your health, every little bit helps! ”
My comments: Fizzy drinks and canned drinks are problematic. If they don’t have high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which is really bad for the heart, they’re full of caffeine or aspartame or Splenda (sucrolose) or neotame (another synthetic sugar).
These days even normal plain or mineral water in plastic bottles have leeched chemical from plastics (BPA etc)that feminizes boys even if they do not accumulatively poison people.
It is no wonder that despite high medical technology, “better” foods, we are not any where healthier than our ancestors, unless we know what to avoid.
1. GREAT way to put on the unwanted weight! “The research, by Bangor University and published in the European Journal Of Nutrition, reported that soft drinks actually alter metabolism, so that our muscles use sugar for energy instead of burning fat. >> ?Fizzy Drinks Are Evil, Says Leading Biologist. (And I think he’s right!)
Genetically Modified Organisms in food and leukemia in humans, infertility or death in animals. Over-growth of superweeds (agent orange). GMO shit that taste sweet (artificial sugar, Aspartame known to be found in Maltodextrin, autolysed yeast, M.S.G etc and sometimes not even labelled! Thank Monsanto for the GMO crap.
What’s really in a glass of milk? MILK ALTERNATIVES:Almond milk, hemp milk, macademia milk, nuts milk, rice milk, oates milk etc.
#milk Most commercial milk formula are problematic. My grandaunt was on Ensure a year before her bronchitis escalated to pneumonia. I was telling my mum that she should have some fresh juices from fruits and wheatgrass. Most milk powders are not healing patients.
In Singapore, Renci Hospital is no longer using Chinese traditional meds to heal patients.
My grandaunt, despite not fully recovered from bronchitis, was transferred from Renci Hospital to Renci Nursing Home cum Hospice (Buangkok). She developed pneumonia a few after that. Her milk feed through her nose, was ENSURE milk. She passed away in June last year. (My mum and I are still missing her.)
Strangely, the IMH was just next door to the ?Renci Nursing Home cum Hospice. I guess both places have something in common: Most who go in do not get discharged until their death (a very sad fact!)
I am also reminded that actor Huang WenYong drank milk on the day that he passed away. Chemo and milk did not work at beating cancer.
“Introducing Ensure to your diet might have a negative impact on your body at first. Common adverse conditions include constipation, diarrhea, vomiting and nausea. These conditions are generally mild and typically abate once your body adjusts. Improper usage, on the other hand, can lead to more serious medical problems such as seizures, irregular heartbeat, changes in mood or mental status, weak pulse, muscle cramps, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.” – http://www.livestrong.com/article/431097-side-effects-of-the-drink-ensure
I wonder what really is “improper use”? Any one uses these milk formulas for their D-I-Y facial masks?
Queen Cleopatra was said to bath in tanks of camels’ and goats’ milk. But these days the milk you are getting are close to having zero nutrients due to UHT (ultra-high heat treatment). This explains why modern milk is so lousy, manufacturers need to add vitamins to pasteurized milk.
In ending, please google for the info that There’s never been a study to prove that milk is good for bones! You’ll be shocked.
Dr. Michael Greger is right: …what exactly is
in the meat that is so significantly increasing cancer death rates, heart disease, and shortening people’s lives? A few possibilities include heme iron, nitrosamines, biogenicamines, advanced glycation end products, arachidonic acid, steroids, toxic metals, drug residues, viruses, heterocyclic amines, PCBs, dioxins, and other industrial pollutants.

Studies Related to Dangers of Consuming Meat Daily or Frequently
HOW MUCH study participants ate and HOW they ate meat (fried or sauteed) were included in Harvard’s studies.
Ref: “We prospectively observed 37 698 men from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (1986-2008) and 83 644 ?women from the Nurses’ Health Study (1980-2008) who were free of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer at ? baseline.
Diet was assessed by validated food frequency questionnaires and updated every 4 years.” – http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/hpfs/pdfs/10L.pdf
Many doctors are aware statins do help plaque to break away from the site of inflammation inside heart arteries. But surprisingly they are not aware that this plaque debri broken away could end up in the brain (stroke) – which is fatal – or in the legs (atherosclerosis).
Some people with trans-fatty diets get atherosclerosis months before their first heart attack or stroke.
Sounds fatal This in itself make the statins dangerous to take. Heart-healthy foods tend to soften the plaques so most are “dissolved” into the blood stream to be taken to the liver for proper ‘expulsion’.

[ I make it a point to read at least 20 to 30 health articles a day and it has been so the last 3 years. After some time, you improve a little on what to watch out for when you read about studies (eg. if any particular study is sponsored by a third party drug-maker or food maker). ]
May be this is why Nugenix may not work for half of those who took it conscientiously for 30 days. Ref: GNC customer testimonials.
I feel that this brand may not be giving 100% honest ingredient label because it does not exactly tell you if zinc and vitamin B12 are directly from fenugreek or if they are artificial nutrients added into the supplements.
Additionally, there is a complaint of this at http://www.scambook.com/company/view/94337/Nugenix The damage was $150.
One on http://www.reviewopedia.com/nugenix-reviews say that the auto ship program for this product kicks in at $75.00 per month but without the benefit of the time necessary to take and review the results.
While you may not fall seriously ill ingesting such ‘natural’ testosterone supplements, I feel it is best to get your fenugreek directly from foods. You can use ground fenugreek powder instead of the actual fenugreek seeds and add them to curries, for example.
Check out some of these fenugreek-containing recipes:

4 out of 5 AGEL products (MIN, FIT, OHM, UMI andExo) used to contain a “Proprietary Sweetening Blend” known as ?Neotame and Acesulfame-K. Neotame and Acesulfame-K have been removed from all AGEL’s products except for the OHM series being sold in Australia. Ever wondered WHY Neotame and Acesulfame-K have been removed?
2. “NOBODY DIED WITH AGEL” but at what quality of life How can we be so sure?
Ever wondered why FIT HEALTHY NS Men drop dead? ?Ever looked into what some soft drinks have? When aspartame (neotame) depletes magnesium in your brain, what will happen?
3. “In the North American ingredient list of Agel’s products, the flavoring is listed as Natural Flavoring .
Action: Determine why Agel did not disclose that ingredient to its North American consumers, and whether you want to consume that ingredient.” – http://agelinfo.blogspot.sg/2006/07/undisclosed-product-ingredients.html
4. Not everyone can take xylitol (some people have stomach trouble after consuming it and dogs can die from xylitol too). And I am not sure why AGEL is certified as HALAL when xylitol is actually wood alcohol.
5. And why would I want some gels that are heavily preserved with benzene (sodium benzoate aka benzoic acid)?
I’ve seen Chinese Traditional Cough Syrups with the warning “This product contains Sodium Benzoate”.
Why the heck would they state this except if it’s a warning of some sorts? This very same ingredient BENZENE does not prevent bacteria from forming at carbonated drink dispensers. Ref: http://www.nickcampos.com/2011/10/soda-fountains-and-fecal-bacteria/
And yes, benzene is harmless UNTIL it comes into contact with vitamin C. Unless you tell me you are very sure you have no Vitamin C inside your body, I have no idea why any one wants a product that contains benzene and risking themselves by allowing benzene to corrode their stomach linings.
6. And there is this deception about AGEL EXO’s “huge ORAC score” which was announced as “800” at some AGEL webcast. This is actually the equivalent of a half cup of grapes or three strawberries, certainly not the 5 to 6 lots of fruits as claimed. Reference: DrDavidWilliams.com: ORAC Values of Fruits & Vegetables http://www.drdavidwilliams.com/nc/ORAC_values.asp
7. And ironically, a “healthy” enterprise could also be selling e-cigarettes. Am I to believe that the company really cares for my health? Ref: http://www.alibaba.com/product-free/104031788/Agel_Enterprises.html
“Low and ineffective levels of ingredients, artificial flavors, dangerous additives, lots of fillers (some products are mostly fillers) and preservatives. And they say the gels are natural.” http://scam.com/showthread.php?t=12510&page=6
10. Oh yeah, reps of AGEL would love you to know that EVERYTHING is rosy in their MLM network, until something like “Randy Gage, AGEL’s 2nd top-selling rep quitted AGEL.” comes into the public news.
CEO of AGEL was sued: http://www.scribd.com/doc/51553055/Glen-Jensen-Sues-Agel-Seems-1-Million-Plus-in-Damages-and-Agel-s-Dissolution
11. If people list Thai-manufactured supplements as China-made supplements, something must be wrong with the integrity of these Agel reps and distributors I think! I am not certain that NONE of the ingredients used out of China is not from China. Ref: http://www.diytrade.com/china/made-in-china-products/013913-c-i-25/Health_Food.html
(Agel Enterprises, LLC is registered and based in Utah, USA.)
The thing about NANOHEALTH technology is nutrients are absorbed into the body quickly and sent quickly to any where the body needs them. The disadvantage is, the less desirable “nutrients” also get absorbed quickly, in the event the product/s contain something less desirable or safe.
Welcome to the “nutritional supplement” clubs like USANA etc, Iris, where capitalism rules over integrity.

I would never have penned my thoughts about Subway except when a few months ago, I noticed the “VEGAN” ingredients coming to Subway in the USA caught my eye. I could not remember exactly what it was, but it was definitely NOT healthy.
These days, fast food chains are targetting people who want healthier foods and people may be unknowingly falling into the notion that they are getting healthier foods. But are they?
1. Being the first thing listed in Subway’s bread, it has enriched wheat the most as compared to the other ingredients listed later. Ref: http://www.subway.com/Nutrition/Files/usProdIngredients.pdf Subway would be the healthiest bread on the menu, right?
But ?enriched wheat bread is not the same as “whole wheat”. This kind of wheat is so DEVOID of nutrients, that manufacturers need to add artificial vitamins to make this ENRICHED wheat bread.
2. Bleached enriched wheat flou in WRAP, means the cancer-causing chemical ALLOXAN, is used to bleach the flour till it’s very white. There is no reason to believe that this kind of bleach in flour can be healthy.
4. The hydrogenated vegetable oil in Subway’s sourdough bread and regular egg omelet patty, is actually trans-fat. Any cooking oil that has been hydrogenated is very bad for the heart.
5. Yeast extractdextrin,maltodextrin and autolyzed yeast extractc may contain aspartame. Yes, aspartame in hidden in Subway’s food. For dangers of aspartame, please google SWEET MISERY Dr. Bette Martini. Aspartame is made from the excrement of a strain of bacteria (Hey, sugar grows automatically!)
6. Their dough conditioner “dough conditioners (DATEM, sodium stearoyl lactylate, ascorbic acid, potassium iodate, azodicarbonamide)” found in Subway’s 9-GRAIN WHEAT Enriched wheat flour, sounds like a lot of chemicals.
Here are what these chemicals do:
DATEM stands for Diacetyl Esters of Tartaric Acid (E472e).
DATEM studies found it caused heart muscle fibrosis and adrenal overgrowth in mice. While banned in Europe, it is not banned in the rest of the world.
Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate can lead to an imbalance of sodium levels and is linked to allergies that may cause swelling, pain and over-sensitivity in muscles. Ref: http://www.livestrong.com/article/353586-side-effects-of-sodium-stearoyl/
Over-consumption of artifical Vitamin C aka “ascorbic acid” can lead to kidney failure and hyperglycemia.
Azodicarbonamide is used in the manufacture of foam plastics. Ref: http://www.examiner.com/article/azodicarbonamide-another-reason-to-avoid-most-bread
#quotes ? “No matter where you eat, take the time and respect your body enough to find out exactly what you’re getting!” – Jason Yun http://www.shapefit.com/personal-trainers-jason-yun.html
8. Mollasses found in Subway’s Chocolate Chunks, Double Chocolate Chips, M&M’s Enriched bleached flour, Oatmeal Raisin Sugar, peanut butter etc may not be healthy if it is sulphured or it is from regular mollasses instead of blackstrap mollases.
For diabetes sufferers (as well as those without diabetes can always do the blood glucose testing), your blood glucose level test results will always tell you if YOU can take mollasses sugar.
9. I have no idea if soy used by Subway is fermented of toxic phytic acid or if it is GMO-free (not genetically engineered/modified). Read more why unfermented soy is so unhealthy. Ref: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/09/18/soy-can-damage-your-health.aspx
10. “Spice alternatives” – there is no way any food consumer will know exactly what these are!
11. Not sure why “natural flavors” is added to banana peppers, what exactly is it?
12. Calcium silicate found in Subway’s Egg Omelet Patty is used to prevent caking and is sold as a common over-the-counter antacid ?It is a sealant to insulate from high temperatures, fire protection products, used on roads, concrete and housing roofs.
In atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries in the legs), the clumping of platelets that hardens the arteries can be seen as torn lesions in the smooth lining of the inner wall of the arteries. These torn lesions are potentially caused by the jagged edges of small microscopic pieces of what looks like mineralized glass, that is your calcium silicates.
This creates a vicious cycle of arterial sludge growth. Calcium silicates can trap platelets, platelets can trap fats, fats can trap bad cholesterols and the resulting blockage traps more calcium silicates. This leads to calcification, hardening of the obstruction and potentially hardening the artery itself.
Imagine cheese becoming more like plastic, that’s what calcification does to the hardening calcium deposits: the clumping of calcium silicate, trans-fat and excess sugar quickly makes arteries inflexible and stiff.
13. Polysorbate 80 found in Subway’s cured ham, pickled cucumbers and ranch dressing can cause heart problems, make cancer tumours grow more rapidly and is a fertility killer.
Dr. Robert Brown of Fort Worth Children’s Hospital undertook a study on E-Ferol – which contained Polysorbate 80 – caused the E-Ferol Syndrome . Ref:
Polysorbate 80 also contains High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) which most people know is really bad for the heart. It is also known to cause headaches, dizziness, upper respiratory issues, gastrointestinal problems, and reduces the ability to fend off infection by as much as 80%. Ironically, this substance is also found in some vaccine solutions.
14. Polysorbate 60 (short for polyoxyethylene-(20)- sorbitan monostearate, and aka TWEEN 60 or E435) is found in Subway’s CHIPOTLE SOUTHWEST Soybean oil.
It is commonly used as a food emulsifier and as a thickening agent in food; it’s used in cosmetics and skin care formulas “to dissolve in a solvent in which they would not normally dissolve”. The Cosmetics Database finds Polysorbate 60 to be a low hazard ingredient for cosmetics.
So, what is wrong with polysorbate 60? It is the ethylene oxide inside polysorbate 60 that is cancer-causing and yet the USA’s FDA states that it is generally safe even if consumed in large amounts.
The USA’s FDA states – via Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 (21 CFR 172.410 (USFDA); U.S. National Archives and Records Administration’s Electronic Code of Federal Regulations) – that polysorbates should not exceed 0.4% of the weight of the finished whipped edible oil topping. Polysorbate 60 should not exceed 2% in table salt, or 5% in baking powder. Are there reasons for this?
“Polysorbate 60 also is used in some vaginal itch treatments, such as Monistat….
According to the “Journal of National Cancer Institute,” the “Journal of Nutrition” and the FAO Nutrition Meetings Report Series, polysorbate 60 can cause detrimental reproductive effects, organ toxicity and cancer in high doses.
However, the FDA designated the chemical as safe for limited use in food. According to the Environmental Canada Domestic Substance List, polysorbate 60 is not suspected as an environmental toxin.
According to the FDA, polysorbate 60 may not exceed 0.61 percent of cake mix when used alone or with polysorbate 65, and the total percent of all polysorbates may not exceed 0.66 percent. When used for confectionery coating or cacao products, it may not exceed 1 percent of the total product weight.” – http://www.ehow.com/about_6109873_polysorbate-60_.htm
Anhydrous milkfat (AMF): This comes from butter or pasteurized cream made from pure Cow’s milk. The milkfat is centrifugally separated from the butter to produce AMF containing at least 99.9 % fat. AMF is water-free and free from non-fat solids.
Acesulfame potassium, Aspartame (neotame), Saccharin, Sucralose (sucrose aka Splenda or EQUAL sweeteners) are artificial sweeteners that are either unsafe or poorly tested.
Propylene glycol is used as automobile anti-freeze and to lubricate air-conditioner compressors. It is found in deodorant sticks and processed foods (a solvent for food colours and flavorings). Some pizza outlets uses it for their pizza too.
Isolated pea product is a protein additive commonly used as a substitute for animal-derived protein.
Guar gum is a thickening agent commonly found in processed foods.
TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone) is used to preserve vegetable oils against oxidation. TBHQ is found in paints, furniture varnishes and perfumes.
dImethylpolysiloxane is a type of silicone used to prevent cooking oil from foaming through repeated uses. However, it does not prevent oil from turning rancid and cancer-causing. It’s also found in lubricants and children’s Silly Putty.
Sodium diacetate is used as a food preservative and flavour enhancer, and is flammable.
If a wholemeal bread has less than 2 grams of fibre per 100 grams of bread, it is not “high fibre” at all.
I recently read a news posted by ChannelNewsAsia that made me dig up part of my communication with a doctor friend. You see, 2 years ago when she asked me what could be causing one of her patient’s baby who kept having diarrhoea. She was very puzzled.
Danone Dumex (Malaysia) recalled some infant formula milk brands.
The baby was not eating or drinking any thing except BLEDINA milk formula (from Danone in Europe). This was also posted to my Facebook timeline 2 years ago, which received scarce response (since most of my friends have much older kids no longer drinking baby formula milk).
Here it is – the part of my communication with the doctor friend:
The milk causes Gastro-oesophageal reflux and digestion problems in babies. The sick baby should go off Bledina and feed on normal organic and unfermented milk is possible, since it is the ONLY thing the infant was drinking and not yet on semi-solid foods.
The wierd thing is, clinical trials were completed in 2008 and if Bledina shows any harm, I do not see why it should be sold in the market. Brand names milk recalls included Bledina in April 2010, as shown in this document —> http://www.ibfan.org/art/85-27.pdf
Additionally Fonterra New Zealand gets its genetically engineered MELAMINE into their babies’ and toddlers’ milk powder products from China. Danone also creates “Bebelac Step 2” and various other snacks like milk cookies.
I had shared the above info in my Facebook timeline 2 years ago. Incredible that it is the food manufacturers that tell you whether or not food or beverage is safe, isn’t it?
Check your food labels and do your own homework. And also best for mums to breastfeed whenever they can (unless they can’t produce milk or on some medicinal drugs).
Consumers should VOTE with their money!
VIDEO: Why You Should Avoid Dairy Milk and Products – by Dr. Vaidya Priyanka
When clearing clutter or re-organizing your room or wardrobe, you decide if you want to keep, throw or give away! Ifound that I had a lot to give away!
Here’s a t-shirt and shorts I used to wear.
Yesterday, I had packed a bag of some used and used-only-once clothes for a Malay uncle who always sat outside a supermarket nearby our place asking for stickers (enough of these stickers can be exchanged for a kitchen knife or other promoted products).
As promised, I went to the supermarket at the appointed time, to pass him the bag of clothes. But he was nowhere to be seen. I asked around and people said he has not been around the whole day.
Finally I had to hand it to a Chinese woman who I know picked used cans from dustbins as I could not go to a dinner holding on to a bag of used clothes. Hope she can find some use to the clothes.
Used mashed fresh cooked tomatoes instead of canned or bottled puree. Ideally, tomatoes should be soaked in vinegar-diluted water for a few minutes before rinsing well with water. (Natural vinegar kills bad bacteria and is a natural disinfectant for any fresh fruits and vegetables.) ?And steaming tomatoes a little actually increases the tomatoes’ levels of anti-cancer lycopene.
If you dislike pounding tomatoes by hand, use a blender.
We use Vitamax blender at home. Although pricey, it’s worthwhile. It’s tough enough to mash raw jackfruit seeds! (Btw, jackfruit seeds can be boiled and eaten like cooked potatoes or yam too.)
Researchers have found that there are compounds in avocados that can inhibit the growth of cancerous cells in the prostate. In some other lab studies, oleic acid in avocados has been proven to kill breast cancer cells. (Avocados should not be consumed with Warfarin (heart statin) or any blood-thinning or blood pressure drugs.) ?Read more about other benefits of consuming avocados.
The prices of avocado fluctuates faster than commodity pricing. lol ? See any difference between these 2 receipts where avocados are bought from the same store on the same day, but different time?
Avocados bought during the day was 3 for $2.50 (extras at 95 cents each). 3 avocados bought at night were $2.85.
If you’re adventurous for this recipe, you can sprinkle flaxseeds. I consider flaxseeds to be one of Earth’ s superfoods. Here are other superfoods you can eat:
This recipe is really simple ?cos AFTER cooking, I added some apple cider vinegar (2 teaspoons), himalaayan salt and black pepper. Sesame seeds are optional.
Btw, sesame seeds are rich in manganese, selenium and zinc. They’re SMALL ? BUT POWERFUL! Sesame seeds ?help to reduce high blood pressure, promotes heart and respiratory health, protects DNA from radiation damage, reduces risk of colorectal cancer and even boost bone health. The black sesame seeds tend to be a little bit more bitter than the brown and white sesame seeds. (I actually love black sesame seeds in peanuts dessert!) ? Read more on benefits of sesame seeds.
And since instant quacker oats are almost ZERO in nutrition, I opt to use non-instant organic oats that require me to cook it for a few minutes. They can become lumpy but that’s ok cos I actually love porridge.
Organic oats are natural antidepresssants, a mild sedative (gives a calming effect) and contain calcium and important trace minerals. In Germany, oats is used by “stop-smoking” doctors to help patients cope with nicotine withdrawal.
Am a sucker when it comes to raw brownies! The brownie ‘bar’ I made are definitely not “bars”, it was more like a brownie pizza and I had forgotten to take a pic before finishing it!
Here’s an excellent Raw Brownie Cheesecake Bar recipe from Coconut Mamma, except I avoid using coconut sugar. The use of sap from coconut flowers etc makes the coconuts sterile, and they no longer produce coconuts. Vanilla beans can be used in place of vanilla extract if you wish. (To do this raw, just refrigerate for an hour before eating.)
My mango dessert near Carlton Hotel…I was not able to get a good look at the restaurant name as I had entered it from the back of the building’s carpark with my cousins. lol Mangoes bust diabetes and cancer, by the way!
The restaurant’s service was top-notched; the waitress would even lay out a serviette over your lap, and ask if you wish to place your handbag or briefcase on a trolley next to your table nearby. This trolley is always in public view.
Did you guess the CRINKLY FRUIT at top-most of this page is PASSION FRUIT? Here’s how the fruit looks like after it’s cut opened:
The insides of a passion fruit is like jelly. I eat it with a spoon – including the crunchy seeds – half slurping from it directly. It’s VERY delicious, reminds me of a cross between a mango and strawberries!
Amongst the nutrients that a passion fruit has, it’s highest in Vitamin A, C and iron. 100 gram of passion fruit covers about 20% of an adult’s recommended requirement of iron for the day (ref: USDA National Nutrient data base).
For health benefits of the passion fruit, please check out Anti-Cancer Foods #62. of my other blog post “More Than 60+ Anti-Cancer Foods You Can Use to Reverse or Prevent Cancer”.
In the near future, I hope to be able to get my hands on macademia nut oil (excellent alternative to butter) and nutritious hemp seeds!
Do you see some values of some raw vegan foods? Cool, isn’t it?
What are xenoestrogens? ?Xenoestrogens are a synthetic form of the female hormone, estrogen, and have been identified as a major contributor to male hormonal issues, such as:
* Low testosterone which may lead to lack of libido
* “Performance” problems in the bedroom
* Increased fats in the body since synthetic estrogens tend to be stored in fats (especially around the chest and belly)
So, no matter how hard one tries at losing excess fat, your bottled water could well be the reason why you are not having any success at losing weight.
Yes, these estrogens could affect male hormones. The scientists’ findings were troubling: A whopping 78% of all water that contained significant traces of estrogen were significantly traced back to plastic bottles. These commercially sold water are bottled in either plastic or composite (paperboard with plastic coating) containers.
So, if you’re a man who drinks bottled water, chances are you’re consuming trace amounts of female hormones with every sip you take!
The more female hormones a man consumes, the more danger he faces in becoming “estrogen dominant” and slowly destroying his ability to naturally produce testosterone.
This is one of the reasons why low testosterone syndrome (also known as “andropause” or “male menopause”) is at epidemic proportions in our society and it’s only getting worse. In fact, too much estrogen are linked to man-boops and cancer. Thailand news once attributed the increase of homosexuality to these hormones!
Of course this does not mean that the estrogens are harmful only to males, I believe that no normal human being need any synthetic form of hormones, female hormones or not.
Staying away from water and other beverages that are held in plastic bottles (including composite paperboard with plastic lining) is a good start.
There are a few other sneaky ways men (and women) are being exposed to xenoestrogens ?on a daily basis. Avoid or reduce the following actions to reduce your exposure to these needless and harmful synthetic estrogens:
Eating conventional fruits and vegetables laden with conventional pesticides.
Eating microwaveable foods.
Eating or drinking from plastic bowls or plates (they are capable of leeching BPA plastic into foods and especially into piping hot soup).
Using sunscreens. Some sunscreen ingredients mimic estrogen, disrupt hormones and accelerate the growth of estrogen-sensitive cancers.
Using or frequently inhaling chemically scented candles or fragrances means you are breathing in hormones-altering chemicals.
Handling paper receipts often may mean you are absorbing BPA ink!
You can reduce your chances of the ill-effects of excess estrogens in your body by doing one or more of the following:
Take care to avoid the above-mentioned six actions (obviously!);
Take good care of your gastrointestinal health by increasing your intake of natural probiotics foods;
Eat more citrus fruits and foods cooked with cucurmin and,
Take more green leafy vegetables; have some uncooked and and added to your favourite healthy smoothie/juice.
Additionally, empty plastic bottles that once hold your mineral water or other beverage, are not meant to be used again and again – even if you are not storing piping hot drinks. They’re just not meant for recycling. There is a tendency for BPA plastic to leech into drinking water.
Demand that biodegradable bottles and packagings without harmful chemicals are used. Let your supermarket know, let your environment ministers and friends know. YOU and your children deserve better health. VOTE WITH YOUR MONEY!
Here’s a question for you:
Since commercial drinking plastic bottles contain ?xenoestrogens, does this mean that BPA-free bottles won’t leak xenoestrogens? Amongst these 5, which is the SAFEST PLASTIC
Try answering this before checking out the answer at the bottom of this post! ?:)

9 Ways to use less plastic
A new investigation by Mother Jones reporter Mariah Blake has revealed that chemicals used to replace BPA may be just as dangerous to your health, if not more. Plastic products being advertised as BPA-free ?? and sold by companies such as Evenflo, Nalgene and Tupperware ?? are still releasing synthetic estrogen. Pic Source
ANSWER: Look at the recycling symbol usually found at the outside bottom or side of your plastic bottle. If it is a #2 HDPE (high density polyethylene), or a #4 LDPE (low density polyethylene), or a #5 PP (polypropylene), your bottle is fine.
UHT sweetens the juice by burning some of its sugars (caramelization). Consumption of caramelized foods had been linked to cancer.
William Dufty’s book, Sugar Blues, reveals the precise biological response the human body goes through after ingesting processed sugars, thus demonstrating William’s thesis that processed sugar is a drug, and not a food.
Think about processing, transit, storage, and not just the ingredients used. You’re better off with freshly juiced juice!
Do you want more information about what’s in your commercial fruit juice, or is this not a big deal to you?
And also, PLEASE demand that the use of pesticides and insecticides are reduced or bannished! There is evidence that ?pesticide compounds like dialkylphosphates (DAPs), is found in fresh orange juice Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15762180
Bees are getting closer to extinction due to GMO pesticides (do google for the info!) Being kind to insects is being kind to ourselves!
Do you want more information about what’s in your carton of orange juice, or is this not a big deal to you?
Deceptive Marketing: Pepsi’s Naked Juice ‘Exposed’:
I live in a very strange family where no family members reported to police when my mother’s father walked out of the house one day and never returned. And “strangely”, 18 years before he disappeared, he told my mum that if he never return home one day, it would mean he was beaten to death.
He was never found although my mum said he was physically searched around the places he was known to frequent.
There was no “emergency contingency” plan when something really bad happened in the family. Hazard or safety preparation around the house were hardly discussed. My mother played around with whatever she could get – needles and knives – and ad at one time, sewed up a chicken’s neck after it swallowed a rubber-band by mistake. Lucky thing is, my mum was a sensitive girl who did not do crazy things with knives and such.
As to my missing grandfather….My grandpa was the kind of person who helped others to write to their Ministers for help, and in so doing, he could have angered and offended some people – ?perhaps some ?errant business people doing illegal things. He had often helped people to write to ministers etc.
It’s ironic that my mum said I resembled him in this aspect, always ready to help those with free “legal” advise. I was always the one friends tend to turn to when they were on the verge of a divorce. My first reaction was always to help my friends patch their marriage although I knew there is “no hope” if a couple cannot be honest to each other even in their most private moments.
Any way… this “strangeness” ?- MY STRANGE FAMILY – turned out to be a blessing in disguise later on. My mum had also refused to make a police report against someone, who my mum thought and felt had lied and cheated her. We made a grave mistake, and especially my mum who thought that she was conniving.
So, when my grandaunt passed away recently….
Day One – ? I knew my aunt and cousins would be busy preparing for my grandaunt’s funeral. My mum remained angry but pretended to be normal.
Day Two – My brother is now used to walking at a more leisurely pace with our mum, whenever she refused her wheelchair. He used to “fly ahead” and realized no one was beside him when he turned to speak. 🙂
Our mum had insisted to get only flowers for my grandaunt’s death. She was bitter and resentful. And I had to respect her decision. My brother was only too glad to come without contributing any thing because he had just started on a new job.
I realized my mum and grandaunt either did not talk about the things that mattered (when my grandaunt was alive), or she just have a very bad memory. Sure, some things do not add up but does it matter any more? Why can’t we get along?
I was somehow glad that my mum AGAIN refused to go to the police, cos it concerned a kin.
The kin she was angry with, treated my mum with nothing but kindness and respect. I saw it and I felt it.
I felt my aunt’s misery, when the pastor spoke about how his daughter cried when she realized her parents and everyone else close to her could one day leave her because of death.
How could she not be miserable? She lived with my grandaunt for more than 30 years, since the time she married Uncle John (my mum’s younger brother).
Day Three – Strangely, today we had a feast right after the cremation ceremony and while waiting for my grandaunt’s ashes to be ready.
Seeing my grandaunt’s ashes brought us some comfort today. My aunt said her brother who had chemo, was yellow (ashes). Like how the flowers were burned with her, my aunt’s pearl earrings also went with my grandaunt and are now part of her ashes.
My mum got angry when I asked her several times, if she was talking about a company or a person. May be my persistent questions made her feel stupid, and she became angry with me. She “blew up” on me in front of my cousins, brother and aunt. :/
I really dislike any vagueness in any story-telling; there was once a news my mum read and the news became news that Malaysian government was throwing stones at cars and killing people. The true story is, it was raining hailstones. So with my mum, story A can become story B. And she would deny saying she turned story A to story B. Idislike talking to my mum when she is like this.
She also spoke about people doing this and that when they did not (she insisted my female cousin parked her car at Mount Vernon but got a bus for us). Right inside my male cousin’s car, she mentioned that it was important that women go for men with money (my cousin was newly married). Iwas not happy with what spilled from her mouth but I kept quiet.
Then, my brother asked my mum how ‘AH NGAN’ was related to our grandaunt – the “Ah Ngan” whose remains are to be dug and cremated to be placed next with my grandaunt’s ashes. (Our mum could not give a straight answer and instead talked about brothers and sisters. She could not understand the questions her doctor asked her at times, and is also a poor listener. She often cuts in before you’ve finished talking.)
My brother asked her again. Fearing her outburst again like how she “exploded” at me earlier over her accusation that my female cousin drove to Mount Vernon today, I told my brother that Ah Ngan is actually my grandaunt’s mother (our great grandmother).
Asking my mum about my dad’s blood group, for example, could also be an uphill task. This (dysfunctional way of communication with my mum) had been going on the last ten years and it was finally witnessed today by my cousins and their mother.
My aunt told me that There’s no point arguing with her cos her memory is slipping, the way my grandaunt’s memory slipped. Iagreed with her. Icould see how my aunt could have tolerated my grandaunt when she was still alive although I was sure the situation with my mum is much worser. Asking every hour why my brother is not home (and asking everyday) became a nuisance instead of a concern.
When my grandaunt’s cremation was about to start, my aunt sobbed. There ?was an immediate instinct and desire to hug her and comfort her and although the tears have stopped, I hugged my aunt twice today. I knew and realized I did not want my aunt to be hurt too. Her pain and grief cannot be lesser than mine or my mum’s.
I realized I actually cared about whether my aunt felt hurt and thankfully I did not confront her directly when my mother became accusatory and angry with her a few months ago. When I am crude, I am really crude. Hurt words spoken cannot be taken back!
Back then, I could only turn to my cousins. My outburst at them was like the outburst my mum had with me earlier today. Ichided myself for allowing my mum’s bitterness to rub off on me some months back.
I’ve been to many funerals but this particular one (my grandaunt’s) is one that brought me closer to my aunt and cousins. I realized then, why a kin’s death played a role in people’s life. This funeral closed a chapter of whatever misunderstanding my mum and I had with my aunt.
I am not really bothered if my mum understood or learned any thing new today (it may be difficult for seniors to learn any thing new), I only know I will try to be a better daughter and to cherish the relationship I have with my kin.
