Are Parasites Making You Fat? or just Slowly Killing You…?
~
Symptoms of Parasites:
The word parasite comes from Greek meaning “one who eats off the table of another.” Parasites eat and live off the food we consume, even our health supplements. They leave us the scraps. They often make us feel that we are not getting the nutrition from our food or that Something is wrong or missing…
~
~ INABILITY TO GAIN OR LOSE WEIGHT
~ CHRONIC CANDIDA
~ YEAST INFECTIONS
~ CHRONIC SINUS OR EAR INFECTIONS
~ URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
~ ITCHY EARS OR NOSE
~
~ ANAL ITCHING, ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT
~ DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS
~ GAS AND BLOATING
~ DIARRHEA
~ MUCUSY STOOLS
~ HEMORRHOIDS
~ CONSTIPATION
~ IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME ~ IBS
~ GRINDING TEETH WHILE SLEEPING
~ HEART PAIN

~ PAIN IN THE NAVEL
~ PAIN IN THE BACK,THIGHS OR SHOULDERS
~ ARTHRITIC PAINS

~ EATING MORE AND STILL BEING HUNGRY
~ ALL SKIN PROBLEMS
~
~ FORGETFULNESS

~ PROSTATE PROBLEMS AND SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION IN MEN
~ WATER RETENTION (mostly from tapeworms)
~ CRAWLING FEELING UNDER THE SKIN
~ FLOATERS ~ in your vision
~ LIVER/GALLBLADDER TROUBLE
~
FACT:
Here is a staggering statistic: the World Heath Organization reported that about 25% of the world’s population is infected with roundworm. These parasites can grow to 13 inches inside the intestine and can lay as many as 300,000 eggs in a single day. Once the larvae hatches it only takes about 2 months before they are reproducing like mad. You’ll have many of the same symptoms as the hookworms including ‘flu like’ symptoms and abdominal pain. If you get a swarm of 13 inchers, your intestines will probably become blocked at which point you’ll wish for nothing short of death. Also if you start vomiting be on the lookout! They have been known to be present in the toilet after vomiting or a nice hardy #2.

FLOATERS ~ Eye Floaters:
~ Eye floaters are those tiny spots, specks, flecks and “cobwebs” that drift aimlessly around in your field of vision. While annoying, ordinary eye floaters and spots are very common and usually aren’t cause for alarm.
~ When Are Eye Floaters and Flashes a Medical Emergency? If you see a shower of floaters and spots, sometimes accompanied by light flashes, you should seek medical attention immediately. Clumps occur when the vitreous gel begins to liquefy or shrink, usually with aging, and detaches from the retina.
~ For some people, floaters are clumpy; for others, they’re stringy. They may be light or dark. What you see is actually the shadows cast by clumps of vitreous gel when light shines past them onto the retina.
~ The sudden appearance of these symptoms could mean that the vitreous is pulling away from your retina or that the retina itself is becoming dislodged from the inner back of the eye that contains blood, nutrients and oxygen vital to healthy function. When the retina is torn, vitreous can invade the opening and push out the retina — leading to a detachment.

CHRONIC VIRAL SYNDROMES or Chronic Viral Infections
Chronic Viral infections can weaken your immune system and leave you susceptible to other infections and disease.

PARVO (found in dogs normally)
FACT: In 1994, a group of over forty patients in Trinity County California, previously diagnosed with a wide range of inflammatory or autoimmune diseases, were all found to test positive for Parvo, a virus known to be devastating to dogs, but considered benign in humans, making this one of the largest groups of patients with seemingly unrelated diseases to be identified as having a common underlying viral infection.

Parasite Test Truth!
~
PCOS Lady:
This woman’s experience is exactly what i am going through! Unnecessary tests from the wrong lab(s), wrong type tests ordered, wasted gas, wasted money to pay for those unnecessary tests, etc… I now have a out of pocket bill for $900 for tests and should have only spent $485 at the Parasitology Center in Arizona and been fully confident in their findings and trusted their treatments!
~ Now i have to prove to my insurance i need the proper testing done at the right lab!
~
All i needed were the proper scripts to the correct lab, www.ParasiteTesting.com in Arizona! After all they literally test for every known parasite to man in the world!
~
Many of you are experiencing “bad” parasites and do not know it…
You may accept them with excuses like:
~ I’m aging
~ My chemistry has changed inside …
~ I ate something wrong …
~ I can’t eat that food anymore… Bad parasites hate acidic foods like pineapple and vinegars!
~ I’m not feeling well, it will pass…
~ I barfed my meal, ok no big deal something did not agree with me…
~ OK, i have diarrhea a few days, it will pass…
~ My doctor says i have IBS, just an upset stomach, etc…
~ My tests came back normal…
~ It’s my time to start getting sick…
~
Yada, yada, yada the EXCUSES KEEP MOUNTING and all the while “YOU” are getting sicker inside… You finally may do something when you start calling out of work, need a doctor, need an operation, you see your looks start getting “ugly”, hair is falling out more, nails are brittle or discoloring just to prove a point here!
~
Ladies, menstrual problems most likely are “bad” parasites! I urge you to be tested before any surgery and expensive treatments, etc…
~ Consider being properly tested if you have had miscarriages as well…
~
I strongly urge you to read through my Parasite and Morgellon posts…
~ Read up on Celiac Disease, Aspartame symptoms too! They can be fatal…
~ After taking antibiotics have you done a yeast cleanse that year? Docs rarely tell you to!
~ The medical world and such do not want you knowing the truths!
~
I copied her piece on lab tests to bring specific attention to the facts that most labs are not equipped to test for “bad” parasites in “YOU“!!!!!
~
Parasites, A Modern Epidemic gives you her journal of getting healthy after bad parasites…
~ She tells of the interesting truths of what we go through to get tested for parasites at almost every lab!

Parasites, A Modern Epidemic
by Garcia Thompson
~ ~ ~
Realize that although you may not feel ill or tired, there may still be parasites within your system. Parasitic infections are masters at hiding while feeding off the human body. So, how can you tell? You can try to take a medical test, but as Dr Andersen (a leading authority on parasitic infections) has said:
~
If you were tested by a doctor for parasites, chances are the results would come back negative. Does this mean you do not have parasites? Unfortunately, medical testing procedures only catch about 20% of the actual cases of parasites. Over a 1,000 species of parasites can live in your body and tests are available for approximately 40 to 50 types. This means, doctors are only testing for about 5% of the parasites and missing 80% of those. This brings the clinically found parasites down to 1%. Now, if I had a 1% chance of winning in the stock market, I don’t think I would invest. Only 1% of parasites are ever clinically found.
~
I went through a medical test that cost me $400, was sent to a “top lab” for the detection of parasites, and still was diagnosed as negative (yet after a few cleanses I have been flushing infections, toxins and parasites from my body daily.) So, although there is a chance the lab test will catch the infection, the likelihood is that it won’t. (the major problem is that the parasites must not only be on the “list” the lab looks for, but also must be laying eggs when the samples are taken.)

Parasites are the Silent Invasion, what you should know about parasite infestation.
~
According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasitic infection. Not all of these people live in third world countries; many in the developed world have any number of parasitic infections, some of which are so highly contagious that extremely casual contact with something that has been handled by an infected person can infect another person.

All people suffer from parasites of one type or another during their lifetimes.

PARASITES, A MODERN EPIDEMIC

~
by Garcia Thompson
~
In today’s society there are many forms of disease, many of which are well documented, researched and acknowledged. However, there is one plague currently infecting over 80% of all Americans (and 85% of people around the world) that receives little or no attention in today’s medical society – the one of parasites and parasitic infections. Yes, it is a documented fact that almost every adult in the United States is not only susceptible to, but is also currently hosting some form of internal parasite. Disgusted? Appalled? Disturbed? Sickened? Those words all described how I felt when I first came to read those statistics. You might ask yourself why I would have been reading about this subject (trust me, not something I’d do in my idle time, normally!) However, after a month long bout with debilitating fatigue and chronic gastrointestinal pain, coupled with several unhelpful visits to the doctor, I did a little research into what may be causing my symptoms and creating this discomfort. Here’s the information I found, which hopefully may help anyone out there to overcome, eliminate and defeat these silent attackers.

(the major problem is that the parasites must not only be on the “list” the lab looks for, but also must be laying eggs when the samples are taken.)
~ *** ~

This leads me to explain about the way parasites reproduce, live and thrive, as well as to give a brief description of the two major types:
Let’s try to understand what a parasite does. A parasite eats, lays eggs and secretes. Ok? Let’s break this down into the three parts: the first is “eats.” Depending on the kind, parasites will eat different things. Many thrive off certain types of food, from dairy to sugar to proteins. These parasites live off the food that goes into your body. Mainly found in the digestive tract, they can also be found in the liver as well as throughout the body. No organ within your body is immune to parasites, in reality. Some parasites actually get their nutrition directly from the cells of the body, and feed off those cells, thus making you sick. They can literally attach themselves anywhere and suck nutrition out of the cells. These parasites are perhaps the most dangerous because they can travel to places in the body where they can do a lot more damage than a parasite living solely in the digestive tract.
~
Parasites rob you off all your finest nutrients and you get the scraps and leftovers. They grow healthy and fat while your body starves for nutrition. And these visitors can subside and exist in the human body for anywhere in the upwards of 10, 20 or even 30 years.
~
To illustrate the longevity of parasites in the human body, consider this example. In 1979 a British study reported on 600 former prisoners from World War II. These men had been stationed in the Far East. Thirty years after the war, 15% were still infected with a parasite called Strongyloides that they had contracted during the war. This means you could have eaten meat 10 years ago that was contaminated, and still be hosting the tapeworms or other types of parasites that were in that meat.
~
Let’s now look at the way parasites reproduce – this is the “lays eggs” part. To start, let’s examine the two main types of parasites and then discuss how each reproduces: Large parasites are visible and are primarily worms and small parasites, which are mainly microscopic in size, include what are called protozoa and amoebae.
~
Which is more dangerous? Despite their almost invisibility, small parasites can be extremely dangerous. Microscopic parasites can destroy calcium lining in your bones, eat the myecin lining off your nerve cells (causing breakdown of the brain-nerve connection) and even inhabit the liver, colon and other areas causing major discomforts and problems. The small parasites reproduce by duplicating themselves in a manner similar to bacteria or viral reproduction.
~
Large parasites, which are the worm type, can usually be seen by the naked eye. Sizes can exceed 15 inches long and normally these worms cannot/do not travel past the digestive tract. The smaller organisms, the protozoa and amoebas, tend to act like a bacteria by traveling through the blood stream to virtually any part of the body. They reproduce without laying eggs and behave more like an infection in the body than do the larger parasites. The larger parasites are worms which reproduce by laying eggs. Eggs are left in the intestinal tract, where they cling to the intestinal walls among the feces, and when they hatch, the young feed on the food that we eat and eventually grow into adults. The adults then repeat the process.
~
The third thing that parasites do is secrete toxins. Simply put, the secretions from parasites in our bodies are poisons and toxins that our bodies are forced to deal with by increasing the process of detoxification. Anyone who has experienced food poisoning or dysentery will tell you how debilitating these toxins can be. These are intense and very high levels of toxins being released into the body at once. On the other end, a chronic parasitic infection that secretes low levels of toxins can eventually create an extremely stressed immune system. When the immune system is stressed over a long period of time, it weakens. When the immune system “goes off line,” our bodies become susceptible to infections of other kinds. This can be extremely dangerous in this day and age because we are more exposed to more viruses than ever before. Also, the viruses are changing and adapting at a very fast rate as are the bacteria, many of which are now resistant to antibiotics and other artificial measures that are used to combat them.
~
In addition, the antibiotics of today as well as any other drug of tomorrow can have a slightly different than intended effect…again, I will let Dr Andersen explain:
~
Once you have established that you do have parasites, taking drugs to get rid of them may not always work. This is because a drug will often drive a parasite from one organ of the body to another. It’s like people moving to better climates to make their living conditions more pleasant, or birds flying south for the winter.
~
So, if we aren’t able to combat the rising number of parasitic infections with conventional medicine, it is even more important to understand just how we can go about that process. First, let’s look at what parasites do and how we sometimes unknowingly “help” them. Parasites tend to secrete toxins as they live within the human body, which, when coupled with other toxins (like alcohol, cigarettes, junk food, polluted air, etc) can lead to what is termed by many doctors as “toxic overload.” Toxic overload comes about when the four primary cleaning systems of the body have been pushed too far by an overload of toxins in the body.
~
Within the four cleaning systems, the lungs, kidneys, skin and bowels, there are many types of overload that can occur. As an example, toxins will travel from one system to another as the current system gets overloaded. In toxic bowel syndrome, the excess of toxins in the bowels pass onto the liver and the liver becomes over clogged and the toxins begin to spill into the bloodstream. This can take a long time or can occur very quickly, depending on how the body and its immune system handles the overload. Parasites have an ability to cause a complete system breakdown, making them one of the most dangerous epidemics facing medicine today.
~
For the time being, the news isn’t going to get much better, I’m afraid. Not only do 80-85% of all American adults have some form of parasite, not only are they hard to diagnose, not only can they cause serious damage internally (and often silently for a long period of time) they also come in many forms. From here, you can read about the different types of parasites, or you can skip to “How Do We Get Parasites?”

Parasitic Infections Are Dramatically Rising in America

Parasitic Infections Are Dramatically Rising in America. Learn How and Why This Could Be So
~
It is Estimated that 90% of Americans Are Infected with Parasites
~
Kate Freer
Kate Freer, Yahoo! Contributor Network

~
Most Americans would not even entertain the thought that they could have parasites.Worms infesting their gut and intestines, certainly not me. Only poor people who live in 3rd world countries have parasites. We live the American dream and worms in our intestines is not a possibility. I am afraid that is not true. It is a great health threat that you need to learn about.
~
Why would Americans have parasitic problems? Parasites are in every aspect of our environment including the food, soil and water we drink. They are found in every economic level but more so in poorer communities. There are 150,000 different kinds of parasites. There are only a few that have standard tests to identify the infestation. The parasites are usually discovered during surgery when the failed organ is opened. The shocked surgeons find on examination, parasites infecting the tissue.
~
Who is most at risk for parasitic infections: All of us! It has been estimated that 90 percent of the North American population has at least one kind of worm in their intestine. Many doctors now feel that parasite infections may be the causative factor in many disease states. People who are living in poorer communities are of greater risk but anyone no matter what economic status can have parasites. You may not think you have any risk for parasites so I ask you to read the rest of this article.
~
Do you have a dog or cat you sleep with? You are at high risk for roundworm infection. Most dogs and cats do have roundworms. Is is not a good idea, health wise, to sleep with your pets. I know I am treading on a sensitive subject but it is true. You put yourself greatly at risk for parasitic infections when you sleep with your pets.
~
Do you eat raw fish? Parasites especially a certain kind of roundworm (Anisakis worms) are found in uncooked or undercooked fish. Its damage in the organs can be fatal. There is a lack of FDA inspectors so only 10 percent of fresh fish are inspected at all. That inspection cannot tell if the fish is infected with parasites. They can only be seen by microscope. There is no way to know if the raw fish you are eating is safe. Fish you catch yourself will have parasites too.
~
Do you drink tap water? In1992 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the cities water was infected by the Cryospidium parasite. The symptoms were flu like. When the stool samples came back, it was a deadly parasite that adheres to the small intestine. There were hundreds sick and 101 people died. The water supply to one whole area of the city was shut down for two weeks. It was the worst parasitic outbreak in history. How many people may have had milder symptoms, never going in to the doctor, so went undiagnosed? They would continue to have the parasites multiplying in their gut until great damage was done. This is not the only parasite that is found in water supplies.
~
Do you eat food? Most of you have to answer yes to that one. One of the worst cases of parasite infections came from Americans eating organic raspberries that came from out side the US. These raspberries had been watered with sewage water and were contaminated with a certain kind of parasite. There were a lot of sick people with that one incident. How much of our food is imported from other countries. Even if it is grown here, there can be parasites on the food you eat.
~
Highly respected doctors and researchers support this article and its stand on the parasitic problem in American health.

~
Physicians and researchers include: Dr. Ross Anderson, a specialist in parasitic infections; Dr. Peter Wina, Chief of Patho-Biology in the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research; Dr. Bernard Jenson, the father of Iridology in the U.S.; Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the National Institute of Health; and others.
~
Common parasites found in human intestines:
~
Pork Tape Worm (Taenia Solium): You are infected by eating uncooked or undercooked pork or by handling raw pork. Many cases have shown up from individuals eating at a fair or event. The pork looked cooked but was undercooked. The larvae enter the body then form cysts in various parts of the body including the brain. This can cause brain seizures and death. This happens more often than you think here in the United States.
~
Round Worms: The WHO in their report says that one billion people are infected with round worms. These parasites get to over 15 inches long and can lay 200,000 eggs each day. These worms can cause intestinal blockages which may eventually impair the liver, kidney, and pancreas. Symptoms can include rashes, stomach pain, asthma, eye pain and more. Your symptoms will depend on the organ or tissue that is infected.
~
Pin Worms: This infection is found commonly in children. The CDC states that in some countries the infection rate is as high as 61 percent. Children often get them playing in the dirt. Often there are no symptoms except itching in and around the anus. Children have a high rate of parasite infection due to their play habits and the fact they don’t wash their hands when they should.
~
Giardia Parasite: The most common intestinal parasite in humans. You can get infected from contaminated food, water, or soil. In advanced cases, it coats your whole lower intestines. This coating prevents you from absorbing the nutrients from the food you eat. Symptoms may include stomach cramps, diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, and chills.
~
Whip Worms: Looks like a whip and infects more than 500 million people. The eggs from this work are found in dry goods such as rice, beans, and grains. This worm can lay over 10.000 eggs per day. This worm causes blood loss that will lead to anemia.
~
Hookworms: A microscopic worm that borrow into the body until they get to your small intestine. They then suck your blood through your intestinal wall. This damages the intestinal wall causing blood loss leading to anemia. In advanced cases this worm can get into the heart tissue leading to death. Dog feces often carry hookworms. That is why many beaches do not allow dogs. If you frequent dog parks and beaches with bare feet or lie on the beach where dogs are allowed, you may be at risk for hookworm infection. There are not a lot of symptoms that go with this worm until there is real damage to your intestine or heart.
~
In Dr. Hulda Clark’s book, The Cure For All Cancers, she states that certain seizures are caused by the Ascaris roundworm getting into the brain; Brain cancer and other cancers are often caused by parasites; certain mental disorders can be caused by parasites; Asthma can be caused by the roundworm, Ascaris, that infect the lungs; Diabetes can be caused from the pancreatic fluke that infects cattle and their meat; Migraines can be caused from the thread worm, Strongyloides; and the dog heart worm, Dirofilaria can infect the human heart as well.
~
Preventive Measures: Use gloves when cleaning up animal manure; Use gloves when gardening; do not go with bare feet on beaches where they allow dogs; wash your hands after taking care of your pets or livestock; Use filtered water in your home; wash all your fresh food even if it says its pre-washed; Wash your hands afterward; Use gloves when preparing raw chicken and meat;
~
Herbal Cleanses: There are herbs such as black walnut, wormwood, cloves, and garlic that kill parasites. It is a good idea to give yourself an intestinal cleanse at least twice a year. Realize that any cleanse may cause nausea, headaches, or some stomach upset. These strong herbs are killing parasites in your intestines, gut, and in the bloodstream. Ask your herb store for help in selecting a herbal combination to kill parasites. A cleanse should be carried out for 60 to 90 days so that both the adults and eggs are destroyed. You should worm your pets at the same time. After you do so, have the carpet cleaned and the pets sleeping quarters cleaned. If they sleep on your bed, dry clean your comforter.

~ Disodium 5′-ribonucleotides (E 635)
~
Low fat and no fat milk products often contain milk solids that contain MSG and many dairy products contain carrageenan, guar gum, and/or locust bean gum. Low fat and no fat versions of ice cream and cheese may not be as obvious as yogurt, milk, cream, cream cheese, cottage cheese, etc., but they are not exceptions.
~
Protein powders contain glutamic acid, which, invariably, will be processed free glutamic acid (MSG). Individual amino acids are not always listed on labels of protein powders.

~
The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that the exposure to mercury vapor can greatly increase beyond this number due to personal habits such as grinding of the teeth, chewing gum, and drinking carbonated drinks. This could lead to a fivefold increase in mercury levels after these activities.

GLUTATHIONE:

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/04/10/can-you-use-food-to-increase-glutathione-instead-of-supplements.aspx
This ONE Antioxidant Keeps All Other Antioxidants Performing at Peak Levels
April 10, 2010 By Dr. Mercola, & Ori Hofmekler
~
Glutathione is your body’s most powerful antioxidant and has even been called “the master antioxidant.” It is a tripeptide found inside every single cell in your body.
~
Antioxidants are crucial in eliminating free radicals from your body. Free radicals are basically very reactive particles that bounce all around the cell damaging everything they touch. Most originate during the process of metabolism but they can also arise from exposure to toxins, irradiation, and toxic metals.
~
Because free radicals are so destructive, cells have a network of defenses designed to neutralize them. This antioxidant network is composed of numerous components that include vitamins, minerals and special chemicals called thiols (glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid).
~
Glutathione is comprised of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine.
~
Glutathione is sometimes confused with glutamine and glutamate due to the similarity in names. Although all three molecules are related, they are different in composition and function. When you are healthy, the three are balanced and do a delicate dance within your body.
~
In a nutshell, this is the difference between the three:
~
Glutamine: Your body’s most abundant amino acid, made in your brain from glutamate; has a major role in various anti-injury processes and muscle repair; a precursor to glutathione.
~
Glutathione (two types, GSH and GSSG): The “master antioxidant”—most powerful antioxidant in your body, present in every cell. Protects cells, and especially important for liver health; breaks down into free glutamate.
~
Glutamate (aka glutamic acid or L-glutamate): Monopeptide amino acid neurotransmitter in your brain—required for synaptic activity. You don’t want too much of it—it’s an excitotoxin. (See also monosodium glutamate, or MSG)

Aspartame Pathway

Posted in ASPARTAME tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:17 pm by PCOSLady

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/02/18/aspartame-toxic-effects.aspx
~
Aspartame Pathway
~
By Dr. Mercola … February 18, 2013
~
The Coca-Cola Company Beverage Institute for Health & Wellness (an oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one), has released an “aspartame safety” page that is described as a “resource for professionals.”
~
The only problem is that it claims aspartame is safe for use by nearly all populations, except for those born with the genetic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU). In reality, research suggests this artificial sweetener may be implicated in health risks ranging from cancer to seizures and even death.
~
Methanol in Fruits and Veggies Differs From Methanol in Aspartame…
~
Aspartame is primarily made up of aspartic acid and phenylalanine. The phenylalanine has been synthetically modified to carry a methyl group, which provides the majority of the sweetness.
~
That phenylalanine methyl bond, called a methyl ester, is very weak, which allows the methyl group on the phenylalanine to easily break off and form methanol. This is in sharp contrast to naturally occurring methanol found in certain fruits and vegetables, where it is firmly bonded to pectin, allowing the methanol to be safely passed through your digestive tract.
~
(However, the methyl alcohol can be liberated by putrefying bacteria that spoil fruits and vegetables and in fact methanol is an indication of spoilage in fruits and vegetables.
~
Dr. Monte recommends cutting off all spoiled parts before eating your fruits and veggies. I believe most people avoid eating spoiled produce. If not, it would be a wise move. It’s the putrefaction that liberates the methyl alcohol.)
~
Methanol acts as a Trojan horse; it’s carried into susceptible tissues in your body, like your brain and bone marrow, where the alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) enzyme converts it into formaldehyde, which wreaks havoc with sensitive proteins and DNA.
~
All other animals have a protective mechanism that allows methanol to be broken down into harmless formic acid, but according to aspartame expert Dr. Woodrow Monte, there’s a major biochemical problem with methanol in humans, because of the difference in how it’s metabolized compared to in all other animals. This is why toxicology testing on animals is a flawed model. It doesn’t fully apply to humans.
~
Symptoms from Methanol Poisoning

~
Symptoms from methanol poisoning are many, and include headaches, ear buzzing, dizziness, nausea, gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, vertigo, chills, memory lapses, numbness and shooting pains in the extremities, behavioral disturbances, and neuritis. The most well known problems from methanol poisoning are vision problems including misty vision, progressive contraction of visual fields, blurring of vision, obscuration of vision, retinal damage, and blindness. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen that causes retinal damage, interferes with DNA replication and may cause birth defects.
~
A Historical Timeline of Aspartame
~
Aspartame is the number one source of side-effect complaints to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with over 10,000 complaints filed ( http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/08/03/just-how-bad-is-aspartame.aspx ) and over 91 symptoms documented that are related to its consumption. With that many reports of adverse effects, it’s hard to believe aspartame is still allowed on the market. Unfortunately, aspartame’s approval was and still is largely a political affair. Many readers have long forgotten what the 60-Minutes’ correspondent Mike Wallace stated in his 1996 report on aspartame – available to view in this 2009 article – (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/01/10/aspartame-brain-cancer-and-the-fda.aspx ) that the approval of aspartame was “the most contested in FDA history.”
~
Aspartame Timeline
~
http://media.mercola.com/assets/images/mercola/aspartame-timeline.jpg
~ July 1, 1983 … Liquid aspartame is unstable, when stored above 85 degrees fahrenheit it breaks down in to DKP and formaldehyde, both being known toxins…
~
The Most Dangerous Food Additive on the Market: Are You Being Affected?
~
Unfortunately, aspartame toxicity is not well known by physicians, despite its frequency.
~
If you do experience side effects from aspartame, please report it to the FDA (if you live in the United States) without delay. It’s easy to make a report — just go to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator page, ( http://www.fda.gov/Safety/ReportaProblem/ConsumerComplaintCoordinators/default.htm ) find the phone number for your state, and make a call reporting your reaction.
~
Are You Addicted to Artificial Sweeteners?
~
In order to break free, be sure you address the emotional component to your food cravings using a tool such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). ( http://eft.mercola.com/ ) More than any traditional or alternative method I have used or researched, EFT works to overcome food cravings and helps you reach dietary success. If diet soda is the culprit for you, be sure to check out Turbo Tapping, (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/05/04/turbo-tapping.aspx ) which is an extremely effective and simple tool to get rid of your soda addiction in a short amount of time.

~ Cooling Inflammation blog

Inflammation is the foundation for cancer and degenerative/autoimmune diseases. Small changes in diet and exercise, e.g. omega-3 oils, vitamin D, low starch, plant antioxidants, and maintaining muscle mass, can dramatically alter predisposition to disease and aging, and minimize the negative impact of genetic risks. Based on my experience in biological research, I am trying to explain how the anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle combat disease.

Fake Pet Medicines–FDA Warning–Important!
I’ve been buying Frontline and Revolution online for my two cats. It turns out that the Frontline was counterfeit. I’ll be going to my vet soon to show them the Revolution and discuss this.
~
Here is the FDA warning about conterfeits: http://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/ResourcesforYou/AnimalHealthLiteracy/ucm203000.htm
~
Some of the companies selling counterfeits appear ligitimate–they might be on a yahoo website (hosted on yahoo, but made by the counterfeit seller) or on Amazon the same way. The packaging is VERY similar to the real thing, but the stuff inside, who knows!
~
The FDA warning shows pictures of real packaging and has hints at what to look for. Wrong shapes, wrong lot numbers, metric instead of imperial measurements, wrong font for the lot numbers, wrong stamps on the packages, missing warnings.
~
I’m never buying Frontline or Revolution online again. The stuff did not work and they even sent me two packages of the same stuff with different forging errors on each. I lost a ton of money and my cats were itchy, but now I have the right stuff and I’m really hoping for the best. The real stuff even has the applicators inside a different kind of plastic!

Surprising Health Hazards Associated with All-Fruit Diet

~ Dr Mercola … Surprising Health Hazards Associated with All-Fruit Diet … February 11, 2013
~ Story at-a-glance
~
~ Ashton Kutcher recently disclosed he suffered pancreatic problems brought on by following an all-fruit diet adopted in preparation to play the character of Steve Jobs in the upcoming film “Jobs.” Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011
~ Fruits are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which is why eating a small amount of them is fine for healthy people. However, many benefit by restricting their fruit intake due to its high fructose content
~ Research suggests fructose may have a particularly significant impact on pancreatic cancer, as pancreatic cancer cells have been shown to use fructose for cell division, speeding up the growth and spread of the cancer
~ As a general guideline, I recommend limiting your total fructose consumption to 25 grams of fructose per day. If you suffer with any fructose-related health issues, such as insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, obesity or cancer, you would be wise to limit your total fructose consumption to 15 grams of fructose per day. This includes fructose from ALL sources, including whole fruit…
