An Egg a Day May Actually Keep Heart Disease (and Strokes) Away

by Debbie Swanson



They look small and innocent enough, but eggs are a fairly controversial dietary item. Many people swear by their health benefits, while an equal number of people strictly monitor their intake.

On the plus side, eggs are a high quality, affordable source of protein. They’re versatile, easily portable and nutrient-dense. But they are also high in cholesterol, something which raises the red flag for many individuals. On closer look, eggs are low in saturated fat, resulting in their inclusion in the government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans for 2015-2020.

Aside from consumers, the impact of egg consumption has long been a focus of researchers and nutritionists. Most efforts seek to identify any negative correlation between egg intake and human disease, but a study published in the BMJ journal suggests the opposite — eggs may offer a positive impact. In a study at Peking University Health Science Center in Beijing, a moderate level of egg consumption was linked to some positive results.

Study Finds Eating an Egg Daily Can Drop Your Risk of Cardiovascular Disease and More

In the study, researchers tracked over 0.5 million Chinese adults, aged 30–79 years, all recruited from 10 diverse locations. Participants were asked about the frequency of their egg consumption. At baseline, 13.1% of participants reported daily egg consumption and 9.1% reported never or very rare consumption. On an ongoing basis, participants reported their egg consumption via a non-validated qualitative food frequency questionnaire.

The study concluded that those who consumed up to one egg per day were associated with an 18% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, 26% reduced risk of stroke and 25% reduced risk of hemorrhagic stroke. These findings suggest that components from eggs could have a favorable effect on overall cardiovascular health.

While egg consumption remains a personal choice, this research is one of the first to show that the eggs may play a positive role in reducing the rate of cardiac events.

Eggs are yummy...and a great food. Diet only accounts for 10-15% of one's cholesterol, the rest is produced by the body. Right Doc?

I adore eggs prepared almost any way, but properly scrambled and prepared by an expert is a delight. Improperly scrambled is just horrible.

My cholesterol has always been fine as well.

Roughly, yes, depending on how you look at it.

All your cells make cholesterol. Most of your cholesterol synthesis happens in the liver/intestines (80%), most of the rest is adrenal and the gonads (ovaries and testicles). It is made from acetylCoA. AcetylCoA is generally produced from the end product of glycolysis, the primary breakdown product of sugars, but also of fats and other substances. AcetylCoA is one of the main "intersectons" in biochemistry and cell biology.

In addition to synthesis the body also recycles cholesterol.

Cholesterol is an important component of all cell membranes and is the key substance in the production of steroid hormones...the sex hormones, aldosterone, cortisol, etc., as well as vitamin D.

Much of the cholesterol you eat is not absorbed because it is esterified, modified in such a way that is poorly absorbed.

Within limits your body regulates steroid production to compensate for ingestion and absorption, eat more cholesterol and your body makes less. Your body also regulates absorption in the GI within limits.

This is a wonderfully interesting and important area of metabolism and medicine with many interesting misconceptions. For instance I don't go for the "good cholesterol, bad cholesterol" monikers. That is simple but important misinformation. HDL and LDL are not cholesterol, they contain cholesterol. They are essentially vehicles for transport of lipids, both fat and cholesterol mainly. That is another misconception. Fat is not cholesterol, and cholesterol is not fat...they are both lipid soluble but they are far from the same thing.

So anyway, yes, you are right.

Johnson & Johnson shares drop after report says firm 'knew' of asbestos




14 December 2018 Business

Shares in Johnson & Johnson plunged more than 10% on Friday, after Reuters reported that the US pharmaceutical giant had known about asbestos tainting its talcum powder for decades.

The report comes as the company faces thousands of lawsuits claiming that its talc products cause cancer.

Reuters' review of documents found the company was aware of trace amounts of asbestos since at least 1971.

J&J lawyers said: "Johnson & Johnson's baby powder is safe and asbestos-free.

"The Reuters article is one-sided, false and inflammatory. Simply put, the Reuters story is an absurd conspiracy theory."

Attorney Peter Bicks told Reuters in an email. "The scientific consensus is that the talc used in talc-based body powders does not cause cancer, regardless of what is in that talc.

"This is true even if - and it does not - Johnson & Johnson's cosmetic talc had ever contained minute, undetectable amounts of asbestos."

Internal tests

Reuters reviewed Johnson & Johnson documents produced as part of the trials, many of which had been shielded from view by court orders.

The documents revealed that the firm's internal tests sometimes found small amounts of asbestos in its raw talc and finished powders.

Most of the firm's tests did not find asbestos, and it did not disclose the tests that did to regulators, Reuters found.

Mr Bicks said the tests cited by Reuters article were "outlier" results. In court, the firm has argued that some of the documents referred to industrial talc products.

The investor reaction wiped 10% off the firm's market value at one point, making it the biggest loser on the Dow.

Legal cases against Johnson & Johnson have had mixed results.

In July, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $4.7bn (£3.6bn) in damages to 22 women who alleged that its talc products caused them to develop ovarian cancer.

The verdict marked the largest payout the firm has faced over the allegations. The firm is appealing against the decision.

5 Medications Outpowered By Curcumin

by Carlene Thomas RD, LD



Is Turmeric More Effective Than These 5 Medications? Turmeric is having a health food revival, and it may be for good reason! As one of the most studied spices, according to the National Institutes of Health, researchers have looked at turmeric as a natural alternative to treat a variety of common ailments.

With thousands of years of documented usage, turmeric has been used to treat everything from brain complications to arthritis and depression throughout the ages.

This yellow orange root can be used in cooking or taken orally in capsule form. So what if this spice could eliminate the need for some of these common medications in your medicine cabinet?

The compound curcumin within turmeric is likely nature’s most powerful alternative to these five over-the-counter medications.

How Does Curcumin Compare to 5 Popular Medications?

1. Anti-Inflammatories


One of the most common anti-inflammatory names you might see is ibuprofen, but did you know one of the main functions of turmeric is reducing inflammation? Before turmeric takes the reins over this OTC medication, it must overcome the hurdle of how quickly it is metabolized and removed by the body. Some studies suggest pairing turmeric’s active ingredient curcumin, with a compound from black pepper, could solve this problem. Additional studies point to benefits of taking curcumin after vigorous workouts and its effectiveness in reducing exercise induced inflammation and improving recovery.

2. Blood Thinners

Aspirin is commonly used as a blood thinner but, taken in high dosages can cause degradation of the stomach lining. Turmeric is actually a more extreme ‘blood thinner’ but with a different mechanism that stops blood platelets from clumping altogether.

3. Statins

Many Americans are on statins, which are medications prescribed for cholesterol management. Curcumin works to keep arteries from hardening (atherosclerosis) while lowering LDL and total cholesterol numbers.

4. Chemotherapy Medications

The search for medications to treat cancer is never-ending but this research on curcumin and how it functions against colorectal cancer in conjunction with a chemotherapy medications called oxaliplatin shows promise.

5. Antidepressants

It’s a bold statement to say that turmeric may be more effective than depression medications. This study provides some of the first clinical evidence that curcumin could be a safe but also effective treatment for those suffering from depression (without additional psychotic disorders). Additional studies have found that curcumin may raise levels of serotonin and dopamine, the neurotransmitters known to elevate your mood.

4 Reasons to Eat Yogurt Every Morning

by Live in the Now



Science now affirms our ancestors’ ancient belief: Yogurt is a health food.

Here are 4 reasons to reach for some yogurt every morning.

1) Yogurt Might Boost Your Weight loss Efforts


Michael Zemel, a researcher at the University of Tennessee, found that obese people who added three servings of low-fat yogurt daily to their diets lost 22% more weight and 61% more body fat than did non-yogurt eaters. Zemel mainly credits yogurt’s high calcium with melting fat while preserving lean tissue mass.

2) Yogurt Helps Fight Bad Bacteria and Protect the Good

Yogurt may suppress H. pylori infections, a cause of peptic ulcers, chronic gastritis and possibly stomach cancer, according to new research from Taiwan. After 59 infected people ate a cup of yogurt twice a day for six weeks, bacteria concentrations dropped more than 35% and the severity of infections significantly lessened.

3) Yogurt Intake May Curb Allergies

Children who ate 3 1/2 ounces of yogurt containing the bacteria, L. casei, a day for a year had fewer attacks of allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, in an Italian study. New Finnish research shows that women who ate probiotics found in yogurt from the eighth month of pregnancy had babies who were less prone to allergies.

4) Cut Risk for Colon Cancer

In a French study, people who ate the most yogurt had half as many pre-cancerous colon polyps as those who ate no yogurt. In animals, yogurt blocked the progression of colon cancer, and DNA damage from meat chemicals that can initiate colon cancer.

3 Serums and Oils That Can Transform Your Skin

by Casie Terry


Chances are, you — like so many of us — have spent years believing that thick facial moisturizers are the key to locking in the hydration that gives skin its healthy glow.

But new research is finding that many of these creams do more harm than good, especially when used year after year.

This is because many of the best skin-healthy nutrients are larger in molecular size. When coupled with thick, waxy substances, it’s nearly impossible for them to penetrate delicate skin cells and be fully absorbed. This prevents these nutrients – the very ones you probably paid good money for – from being able to reach deep beneath the skin’s surface where they’re needed most to effectively support the skin’s structure and maintain the hydration that is the hallmark of healthy skin. Over time your skin realizes it’s being “faked out,” and it begins to produce oils of its own that merely clash with your cream. It’s a vicious cycle.

The Unlikely Solution: Nutrient-Rich Face Oils and Serums

Contrary to what we’ve been told our whole lives, our skin favors oils, so long as they’re the right oils carrying the right nutrients.

Your skin is protected by a layer called the stratum corneum, also known as the lipid barrier, which shields skin from external threats such as bacteria and pathogens and helps prevent water loss. After the age of 40, though, this layer begins to breakdown, which is why it becomes harder for the skin to retain moisture.

It is because of the lipid barrier that nutrients need an oil-based carrier such as a cream or an oil, but it is imperative the carrier molecule be small enough to penetrate deep beneath the skin’s surface to effectively nourish and protect skin. Otherwise, you’re not only throwing your money away, your damaging the outer layer of the skin risking moisture loss.

And this is exactly why facial oils have been skyrocketing in popularity.

“Oils protect the skin’s lipid barrier and are great at preventing moisture from evaporating from the skin,” says aesthetician and owner of Mint + Berry, Charmaine Leah. And while most people shy away from oils, fearing their skin will feel greasy, Leah confirms this isn’t the case. “The truth is, most natural oils are easily absorbed, not greasy, and noncomedogenic; that is, they have a low potential to clog pores, which makes oils perfect for all skin types,” she says.

3 Reasons to Add a Face Oils and Serums to Your Routine

1. Oils and Serums Repair Skin on a Deeper Level: They deliver concentrated doses of the nutrients your skin craves to stay hydrated and healthy. Better still, they don’t have other waxy compounds competing for absorption into your skin.

2. Face Oils Lock in Moisture: Oils penetrate the lipid barrier, rather than form a layer on top of it. This traps moisture in a way that is more natural for the skin, which means your subcutaneous cells are never “faked out” and triggered into the vicious cycle of producing more oil.

3. Face Oils Skip the Risky Ingredients: Because they are a combination of mostly waxy substances and water, most creams and lotions use unnatural preservatives. Oils, on the other hand, do not need to employ preservatives to maintain potency or freshness.

While the waxes and fillers that often accompany “velvety creams” sit on the surface of your skin, preventing the full absorption of skin-plumping and protective nutrients, facial oils quench thirsty skin, delivering nourishment and moisture to skin and tissue more efficiently.

Here are 3 Oils and Serums to Considering Adding to Your Daily Routine:

1. Squalane

This powerful, plant-based lipid penetrates skin cells in a unique way to lubricate, regenerate and protect — and skin health chemists are finally catching on. A superior moisturizer with a non-greasy feel, squalane is best known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and is an incredibly valuable skin health antioxidant. The naturally occurring compound can be found in human sebum, but by the time we’re in our late-thirties we no longer have the levels we need to maintain smooth, supple skin. In fact, the dramatic drop off of squalane levels is thought to be responsible for the development of age spots, as well as thinner, lack-luster skin.

Adding squalane (or a product that contains it) to your skin health regimen can:

Boost cell regeneration
Increase oxygenation and cellular turnover
Prevent “age spots”
Protect against UV damage
Heal dry, cracked skin.
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Coconut Oil

Not only is coconut oil a fantastic, chemical-free way to remove your make up at night and it’s probably the best body moisturizer I’ve ever used (not to mention the least expensive). Keep in mind that a little goes a long way; you only need a pea-size amount for your face. It absorbs nicely and perfectly hydrates without leaving the skin oily. The one drawback: it smells a touch funny, so it helps to mix it with an essential oil of your choice.

Adding coconut oil to your skin health regimen can:

Reduce inflammation of the skin
Kill the bacteria and microorganisms that cause blemishes
Moisturize the skin and provide long lasting hydration
Reduce the chemical overload found in conventional bodylotions and skincare products

3. Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is one of the rare nutrients that both promotes the synthesis of proteins vital for healthy-looking skin, it actively repairs damage to the skin and wards off the free radicals that harm skin cells. Studies have shown that topical vitamin C is a proven and effective way to boost collagen production later in life.

Furthermore, vitamin C exerts powerful UV-protective properties thanks to its ability to neutralize free radicals that occur when UV rays have penetrated the skin. Lab studies have shown that topical application of vitamin C can reduce sunburn cell formation by 40-60%.

And the best part about using a vitamin C serum is that the antioxidant powerhouse is concentrated for targeting and visable results. (But be careful. Some brands take shortcuts and use ingredients and carriers that prevent it from working well. Check this article to know what to look for in a topical vitamin C serum.)

Adding Vitamin C Serum to your skin health regimen can:

Brighten the skin
Support collagen production
Even skin tone and help reduce the appearance of sunspots
Help ward off everyday sun damage

Interesting things that are not noted by the author:

1) Anti-inflammatory is also anti-immune. Stronger ( as the title implies with the word "outpowered") isn't necessarily better unless, like this article, you are attempting to support the multi-billion dollar "alternative" industry, then you ignore it if you know it, or more likely simply don't know it.

2) Blood thinners- Aspirin is not used in high doses as a blood thinner, yet the article cites that as so. In addition, it cites blood thinning as an action of the drug that is a subject of the article (yes, it is a drug). As the title cites, the drug is more powerful. OK...the side effect is bleeding. Strokes, hemorrhages, death. Clotting dysfunction is the most common side effect of all the herbal alternative therapies.

3) Statins- It says the drug keeps arteries from hardening, artetiosclerosis, which is untrue, it can reduce the progression, not stop it which is what the statement clearly implies. This is the way things are commonly misrepresented in "alternative". In addition, this has little or nothing to do with LDL, HDL and athersosclerosis.

4) Chemotherapy- Chemotherapy, cancer treatments, will always affect rapidly dividing cells. That's your bone marrow, skin, GI lining, etc. So if this drug is used as a cancer treatment, it does the same.

5) Antidepressants. Drugs that elevate serotonin and hence mood can be dangerous for a number of reasons. Serotonin syndrome and mania can occur. Yes, including with herbal "alternatives". It can even induce psychosis.

So if you take this drug for any of the above effects, all of the others are potential side effects. And that is something very important that the author does not bother to mention. For example: Take it to lower your cholesterol and you can have bleeding. Take it as an antidepressant and you can have immune suppression.

In addition, if you take this drug for any of the above effects, the combination with other herbals, OTCs, and/or prescription drugs can magnify any of these effects and or create new ones not in this list.

Granted is is ultimately posed as a question:
Quote:
Is Turmeric More Effective Than These 5 Medications?
The answer is that the author does not know, we do not know. Thought further investigation is warranted, it is not likely.

That makes the title and intent of the article extremely misleading and potentially dangerous. That is a fact.

Infanrix Hexa – 65 Toxins Found. All Risk. No Benefit.

by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM 12/16/2018

I’ve been saying for YEARS that we need to raise $50k to have every vaccine tested to see what is REALLY coming through that needle. This clearly came into focus for me in 2009, with the H1N1 “Swine flu” fiasco. So many people were injured and a big spike in miscarriages and stillbirths was reported. I started asking loudly: “What’s IN that stuff? We should test those vials”


Well, it’s finally happening.

With the onset of government vaccine mandates, which suddenly required Italian children to be injected with 11 vaccines to attend school, the Italians are fighting back. First, they voted out the government that pushed for the mandates calling their movement #GovenmentofChange. Then on December 4, the new Italian health minister kicked out all 30 members of the health policy advisory board.

On December 13, Corvelva, a scientific research group, announced it had received €10,000 (US$11,350) from the Italian National Order of Biologists with plans to use the money to test the contents of every vaccine currently on the market. The result of their first test was released on December 16, and the report is a doozie.

You certainly won’t hear this in the MSM.

The first vaccine they thoroughly tested was Infanrix Hexa – a six-in-one vaccine manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) that is *supposed* to contain the following antigens: tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis toxoids; inactivated poliomyelitis viral strains 1-2-3; and hepatitis B surface antigen. Shockingly, Corvelva found NONE of these antigens in the vaccine, meaning, that NO antibodies to the intended antigens will be created.

And it gets worse. In addition to no vaccine antigens, they found the following:

traces of 65 chemical cross-contaminants from other manufacturing lines;
chemical toxins;

unrecognizable macromolecules;

various free bacterial peptides that are potential allergens and are capable of inducing autoimmune reactions.

These findings could bring justice to parents who lost their children in 2009 when 36 children died and more than 1,700 were injured in a “clinical trial” – the nice name for human experimentation.

I suspect that as they continue to test each of the vaccines in the childhood schedule, they will find metallic compounds, nanotechnology and a long list of chemical contaminants. At some point, the work previously published by the Gattis’ will be vindicated. I wrote about their shocking findings in a previous article that you can find here.

Infanrix Hexa is used widely in the international market. The vaccine is all risk and literally no benefit. Its use should be stopped immediately, pending future investigation. If their testing continues to reveal ever more inconsistencies, GSK could be in serious legal problems for inappropriate labeling, poor manufacturing processes and perhaps even charged with murder.

Is Your Doctor Being Paid by Big Pharma? Here’s How You Can Tell

by Casie Terry



How much money does Big Pharma spend to schmooze your doctors and push its latest “solutions”? The stats and facts in the infographic below will astound you.


Worse, in many cases your trusted doctor isn’t even given the truth about the drugs he or she prescribes, as the giants of Big Pharma also spend exorbitant amounts of money to hide damning research and payoff lawsuits that result from their dishonesty and negligence.

In fact, a lawsuit against the manufacturers of Invokana, a drug prescribed to lower blood sugar and improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes, alleges that “the manufacturer failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of kidney failure, heart attacks, and ketoacidosis,” noting that “if the manufacturer had given proper warnings, doctors would have prescribed a medication other than Invokana for patients with type 2 diabetes.”

And the sad truth is that this happens all the time. Despite the fact that there are many natural alternatives to common drugs, physicians rarely veer from “solutions” endorsed by the Big Pharma execs who offer them lavish gifts and vacations.

Is Your Doctor Being Paid by Big Pharma? Here’s How You Can Tell

In 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services made public all payments gifted to physicians and teaching hospitals. This includes all lunches, vacations, payments and perks dating back to the year 2013.



To search for your physician or hospital, simply visit the site Open Payments Data and use their search function to browse the numbers.

They launched the site as part of a national transparency program that aims to give the public a more honest picture of how their healthcare providers’ practices and treatment recommendations might be influenced.

This is especially valuable in the face of so many “drug mishaps.” One could argue that if a physician received a hefty monetary payment from a drug company, he or she might be inclined to prescribe it, even without a reliable understanding of the medication.

So how safe are your medications, really?

One may never know until it’s too late, but we recommend knowing the answers to these 15 questions before filling any prescription.

For more on how Big Pharma conglomerates snowball doctors and patients alike, check out our article Should You Always Do What Your Doctor Says?

In the meantime, here is the promised infographic on exacly how Big Pharma is spending big bucks to influence your physicians’ prescribing practices.
