Health blogger threatened with jail time for advocating Paleo diet that cured his diabetes

 

The truth about nutrition quite obviously threatens the power and profits of the pharmaceutical industry — an industry that thrives on nutritional ignorance and highly deceptive marketing of its poisons to the uninformed masses. Merck, in fact, was just fined $321 million for criminal violations in the illegal marketing of Vioxx

Cigarettes, Lies, and Pet Food Advertising.

If you get rid of it and feel better, then perhaps it’s best to ditch it in its entirety. But if you really feel no different, then you don’t need to scour food labels for hours on end to make sure the tiniest bit of gluten isn’t lurking in your salad dressings, canned goods, seasonings, lunch meats, cereals, meat replacements, tomato sauces….. Yeah, gluten is a food slut.

Gluten is pretty much as cool as socks and sandals in “celeb-ville”.

Hey look! Ice pops on my feet!

Wait, what is gluten?

According to trusty WIKIPEDIA… “Gluten is the composite of a gliadin and a glutelin, which is conjoined with starch in the endosperm of various grains.”

Endosperm?

Got a bad gut? Are you fat and do you have heartburn?Study suggests link between H. pylori bacteria and adult Type 2 diabetes

H. pylori infection of the stomach may be acquired in early childhood, become persistent, and can lead to gastric and duodenal ulcers; these bacteria have also been associated with an increased risk of . Treatment and eradication of these bacteria with antibiotics have cured many patients with ulcers, revolutionizing treatment of this disorder.

Type II diabetes causes an estimated 3.8 million adult deaths globally. There have been conflicting reports about the association between H. pyloriinfection and type II diabetes. To better understand the relationship betweenH. pylori and the disease, Yu Chen, PhD, and Martin Blaser, MD, at NYU School of Medicine, part of NYU Langone Medical Center, cross-analyzed data from participants in two National Health and Nutrition Surveys (NHANES III and NHANES 1999-2000) to assess the association between H. pylori and levels of HbA1c. According to the study authors, “H. pylori was consistently positively related to HbA1c level in adults, a valid and reliable  for long-term blood glucose levels.”

In addition, this association was stronger in individuals with a high BMI compared to those with a lower value. The researchers hypothesized that H. pylori may affect the levels of two stomach hormones that help regulate , and they suggest that eradicating H. pylori using antibiotics in some older  could be beneficial. More research will be needed to evaluate the health effects of H. pylori and its eradication among different age groups and in relation to obesity status, the authors noted.

An accompanying editorial points out that while previous studies have addressed the association between type II diabetes and H. pylori in small samples, this study analyzed two independent large national samples of the general population. The editorial authors agreed with the study investigators, suggesting that adults infected with H. pylori with higher BMI levels, even if asymptomatic, may need anti-H. pylori therapy to control or prevent type II diabetes. If the study findings are confirmed, lead editorial author Dani Cohen, PhD, of Tel Aviv University in Israel, noted, they “could have important clinical and public health implications.”

Fast Facts:  causes an estimated 3.8 million adult deaths globally. H. pylori was consistently positively related to levels of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), an important biomarker for  and diabetes. The association between H. pylori and HbA1c was stronger in individuals with a higher  (BMI).

Death as a side effect? Drugs Kill Plants Cure…..

DEATH IS NOT A SIDE EFFECT

DEATH is not a “Side Effect”

C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

Every known drug has a significant list of “side effects”, an oxymoron created by the PharmacoMafia to make the COMPLICATIONS seem minor! The July, 2000 JAMA reported that 106,000 Americans DIE each year from PRESCRIBED drugs. Many of us believe that is a severe understatement. Problems are often blamed on the illness—even death, when in fact the drug was the major cause.

Now, there is a rational need for some drugs, but in every case there is a risk! And the idea of giving drug after drug to control symptoms created be a different drug is beyond absurd. Please always go to the internet and read ALL the “side effects” listed for any drug and decide on the seriousness of the illness versus the risk of the drug!

Prescription drugs taken as directed kill 100,000 Americans a year. That’s one person every five minutes. How did we get here?

                            As a result, one in 20 U.S. adults admits to having abused prescription narcotics. The drugs most abused, according to the CDC, are “drugs such as Vicodin ( hydrocodone ), OxyContin (oxycodone), Opana ( oxymorphone ), and methadone . Overdoses of opioid prescription drugs now kill more people in the U.S. than do overdoses from heroin and cocaine combined. In 2010, pharmacies sold enough of these opiate-based prescription drugs to give everyone in the U.S. a typical 5-milligram dose of hydrocodone every four hours for one month they abused prescription drugs in the last year.

                            Comparing the five years (2001-2005) with the five years (2006-2010) finds that the number of deaths grew by +66.7% for the second time frame as compared to first. For the same comparative spans, serious patient leaped by almost three quarters (+77.5%).
