CANCER TRUTHS
~
PCOS Lady:
We all know cancer is a huge money maker for all entities involved… I have focused my attention on the truths and those research doctors, etc… who care… I have included one man’s research findings… I feel it educates you on related issues!
~
Realize you can never please everyone, some one will always try to prove you wrong, etc…
~ People knowing truths are deemed “crazy”, arrested, etc…
~
Erin Brockovich found tap water may cause cancer… Have your tap water tested when you move in and every few years… She created a cancer map by state…

~ Ty Bollinger on Jan 31, 2011 in Cancer Truth ~ Conventional medicine defines cancer as a colony of malignant cells, or a tumor.
~ MSG and Aspartame are excitotoxins and kill your brain!
~ 50% of all bankruptcies are due to medical bills…
~
Cancer Findings
~
Cancer is caused by an intestinal fluke fasciolopsis buski … Its in the flat worm family…
~ Isopropyl alcohol promotes it and is found in food and solvents… Takes 5 days to leave the body…
~ Test: * Mesathiene Protein ~ The earliest cancer detection… (pancreatic, ovarian, lung cancers)
~ Test: * IGF1 – gives cancer chance (7x’s breast ~ milk duct tissue)
~

~ YouTube … Jack Andraka (15 year old) … For A World Without Cancer: Jack Andraka at TEDxOrangeCoast…
Test: Mesathiene Protein… It detects pancreatic, ovarian, lung cancers at its early stages giving you a 100% survival rate!
~ Test: His is $ .03 each strip, * 100% accurate! * (patented) … Lab is $800.00 …
~
IGF1 ~ Insulin-like growth factor 1
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin-like_growth_factor_1
~ Wikipedia … IGF1 ~ Insulin-like growth factor 1 …
~ Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), also called somatomedin C, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IGF1 gene.[1][2] IGF-1 has also been referred to as a “sulfation factor”[3] and its effects were termed “nonsuppressible insulin-like activity” (NSILA) in the 1970s.
~
IGF-1 is a hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin. It plays an important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults. A synthetic analog of IGF-1, mecasermin is used for the treatment of growth failure.
~
IGF-1 consists of 70 amino acids in a single chain with three intramolecular disulfide bridges. IGF-1 has a molecular weight of 7,649 daltons.
~
~ The IGF signaling pathway has a pathogenic role in cancer. Studies have shown that increased levels of IGF lead to increased growth of existing cancer cells.
~ Anabolic deficiency in men with chronic heart failure is prevalent and could have an associated detrimental impact on survival. Deficiency of anabolic hormones identifies groups with a higher mortality…
~ Aging: It is now widely accepted that signaling through the insulin/IGF-1-like receptor pathway is a significant contributor to the biological aging process in many organisms.
~ Neuropathy: Therapeutic administration with neurotrophic proteins (IGF I) is associated with potential reversal of degeneration of spinal cord motor neuron axons in certain peripheral neuropathies…
~ NOTE: Under nutrition retards it!
~
IL-6 ~ Interleukin-6 tests for Heart Disease ~ Diabetes ~ Osteoporosis ~ frailty ~ certain cancers…

ADH1 to Methanol to Formaldehyde

Posted in ASPARTAME tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:57 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Diabetics and most people are having their ADH1 levels checked yearly… This post explains what the ADH1 actually is… This is scary and may scare you straight! I hope you think twice about smoking and eating or drinking anything with aspartame in it…
~ “YOU” are choosing the rate you will die… Be it fast or slow…

A liter of diet drink gives the same methanol (wood alcohol) as the smoke from a pack of cigarettes, 60 mg — methanol has a half-life in the human bloodstream of 3 hours, showing that its elimination is slow, while it reaches every part of the body and the fetus every minute.
~
Methanol is actually less toxic than ethanol, except when it goes easily into cells that also happen to have high levels of free floating ADH1 enzyme, in 19 specific human tissues, including inner walls of blood vessels in the brain and eye, as well as in the rods and cones of the retina — the methanol is made quickly into free floating formaldehyde inside these cells, where it naturally wrecks havoc, interfering with all biochemistry, just as in its well known uses for embalming and sterilizing medical tools.
~
The resulting stew of formaldehyde modified proteins activates the inflammation process of the immune system, producing complex evolving pussy lesions — brain in Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis, inner walls of blood vessels in atherosclerosis, skin fibroblasts in lupus, pancreas in diabetes 2, retina in macular degeneration, joint fibroblasts in rheumatoid arthritis

Two key ATP enzymes are impaired in mitochrondria, shutting down aerobic energy metabolism, leading to reduced metabolism and anaerobic buildup of lactic acid, resulting in acidosis.

~
The key chart that summarizes how ADH1 enzyme in high levels in 20 tissues in body and fetus makes methanol into formaldehyde right inside cells, initiating over 20 human diseases:
~
http://www.whilesciencesleeps.com/references/
~
7 ADH1 references (listed below) for 16 tissue types (some tissues have several diseases) 218, 220, 221, 357, 503, 514, 563, 637, 638, 640;
~
18 target tissues for formaldehyde harm;
~
Over 20 specific modern novel “diseases of civilization”;
~
Each with huge growth in incidence in the last 35 years — 25 references;
~
U shaped curve (those who never drink ethanol get twice the harm for 6 of these diseases as those who drink once daily, since ethanol is a potent antidote that prevents ADH1 from making methanol into formaldehyde) — 8 references;
~
18 diseases from smoking cigarettes (a strong methanol source) — 24 references;
~
13 diseases from using aspartame — 22 references;
~
Monte didn’t have enough room on this 2-page figure to include the suite of 12 of the same symptoms and tissues from cases of often fatal chronic and acute methanol toxicity, page 133, with copious references.
~
This is a work in progress, highly incomplete, as this is an introductory update on the status of an breakthrough paradigm in toxicology, that presents multiple strong lines of evidence, allowing any intelligent layperson to come to their own decisions about methanol and resulting chronic formaldehyde toxicity diseases for specific high ADH1 sites, ranging from breast cancer to diabetes 2.
~
Table 5.2: target organs of methanol toxicity (bad ADH1 sites)
~
~ brain, vascular tissue, tau protein — Alzheimer’s myelin basic protein — multiple sclerosis
vascular lining — headache, seizures, glioblastoma cancer
~ eye, retina, ADH1 in rods and cones — macular degeneration
~ blood vessels, intima and media (inner walls), LDL low density lipoproteins — atherosclerosis
~ skin, fibroblasts — skin cancer, dermatitis, lupus (SLE systemic lupus erythematosus)
~ breast, epithelial (milk ducts) — adenocarcinoma
~ kidney, epithelial tubule — kidney cancer, poor function
~ bone, synovial fibroblast — rheumatoid arthritis
~ pancreas, islets of Langerhans — reduced insulin, diabetes 2
~ lung, fibroblasts — COPD chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, adenocarcinoma
~
Fetus, no ADH1 in placenta,
DNA methylation — terata (birth defects), autism
liver, lung, kidney harm — preterm delivery
~
Liver, highest ADH1 in body, many targets — hepatic cancer
~
“While Science Sleeps” textbook, 2012 January:
~
“Methanol travels easily to breast tissue and has been found in human milk. 219
~
The cells that produce milk within the breast, cells prone to develop
the most common of breast cancers, adenocarcinoma 358, contain high
levels of ADH1 enzyme, 358 allowing methanol’s conversion to
formaldehyde [ inside the cells as free floating acidic hydrated
formaldehyde, highly reactive on both sides of molecule ].
~
Mammary epithelial cells have no way to protect themselves from
formaldehyde 216 — no means to render it harmless.
~
They, unlike other breast tissue, contain no aldehyde dehydrogenase
enzyme (ADH 3) that could transform formaldehyde into the
non-carcinogenic formic acid. 216
~
Of particular interest are recent findings implicating ADH as playing
a pivotal role in the formation of breast cancer, documenting a
greater incidence of the disease in women with higher levels of ADH1
activity in their breasts. 357″

Many of these diseases, including diabetes 2, are twice as harmful for
those who never drink ethanol, compared to those who have just one
standard drink a day, due to the inhibition by ethanol of formation of
formaldehyde from methanol by ADH1.
~
Many people are protected by methanol in their blood from fermentation by bacteria in the GI tract.
~
High levels of ADH1:
~ liver, kidney, lung;
~ intima and media (inner walls) of blood vessels, notably base of brain and retina;
~ rods and cones in retina;
~ purkinje cells of vermis in cerebellum;
~ islets of Langerhans in pancreas;
~ fibroblasts in skin, bone marrow, synovial tissues in joints;
~ milk ducts of breast;
~
Men have several times more ADH1 in their GI tract than women, so less methanol gets into the blood to attack other tissues, so now four times as many women get multiple sclerosis as men.
~
Sources of methanol (wood alcohol):
~ smoke from cigarettes, wood, peat;
~ aspartame, and chewing gums;
~ some dark wines and liquors;
~ fresh tomatoes, black currants;
~ unfresh fruits juices vegetables cut up and preserved wet at room temperature in sealed cans jars plastic containers (including home preserves and jugs of apple cider by farming families);
~ jams jellies marmalades;
~ smoked fermented spoiled foods;
~ some fresh coffees;
~ approved food additive dimethyl dicarbonate;
~ vehicle fuels;

PCOS Lady:
I was just made aware of a toxic corrosive chemical put in Dove, Suave, etc… products by a friend… Who now uses Dr Bronner’s things…
~ I have used Suave shampoo for years, it does a nicer job than the expensive shampoos! Hmmm, now i wonder what all the toxins have done in me…

Toxic Shampoo: Read before Applying
~
October 2, 2012
by guest blogger Isaac Eliaz, MD, MS, LAc, integrative medicine pioneer
~
When embracing a healthy lifestyle, there’s one thing we learn over and over: healthy living requires vigilance. This is true of food and exercise, and, especially, the products we buy.
~
Like so much in modern life, shampoos and hair care products often contain too many ingredients that were born on a chemist’s bench. These chemicals are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, and from there they can wreak havoc on organs, tissues, and cells. Luckily, there are many reputable natural health companies that are aware of these dangers and use healthy cleansing agents in their body products instead.
~
Toxin Alert
~
But, unless you’re extremely careful, it’s pretty much impossible to avoid all exposure to harmful, health-robbing toxins. Here’s a list of common chemical offenders found in many shampoos:
~
~ Parabens: A common preservative used to eliminate bacteria and fungi in cosmetics, parabens have been linked to increased estrogen levels, which can lead to hormonal disorders and even cancer.
~ Quaternium-15: A preservative that releases formaldehyde and has been linked to cancer, specifically leukemia, quaternium-15 is also an allergen and can cause contact dermatitis.
~ Fragrance: We would need an entire book to list all the ingredients found in the various fragrances used in shampoos and skin products. These can cause allergic reactions, rashes, headaches and nausea. Some fragrance compounds have been linked to cancer.
~ Methylisothiazolinone: Often abbreviated on ingredients lists as MIT, this preservative is found in a wide variety of shampoos and has been linked to neurological damage, particularly in unborn children. MIT has also been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
~ Sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate: Abbreviated SLS and SLES, these surfactants make soaps foamy. They can also cause skin and eye irritation and have been linked to endocrine disruption, genetic mutations, and cancer.
~ 1,4-dioxane: Not an ingredient so much as a contaminant, however, it’s been found in 22 percent of the products in the Skin Deep Database from the Environmental Working Group. This is cause for concern. The Environmental Protection Agency classifies dioxane as a probable carcinogen.
~
What to Do
~
The first line of defense is prevention. Do whatever you can to keep these chemical compounds off your skin as much as possible. But again, these toxins are so common that it’s difficult to avoid them entirely. Luckily, there are a number of ways to protect your health in the presence of these harmful pollutants.
~
Eat protective nutrients. Many of the harmful chemicals in shampoos and body products have an oxidative effect, which can wreak havoc on cells, tissues, and organs by causing chronic inflammation and free radical damage. Antioxidants combat these effects, particularly vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A and beta-carotene, alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl-cysteine, and others. Fresh berries, nuts, cruciferous and colored vegetables, and numerous herbs and spices are also high in antioxidants.
~
Add botanical supplements. Calendula, honeysuckle, astragalus, and rehmannia root can help protect the skin from irritation and other damage. Calendula and honeysuckle are flowers and usually steeped in hot water to make tea. Astragalus and rehmannia are roots and are often ground into a powder and mixed with water, or put into a capsule or tablet form, along with other herbs. Calendula and honeysuckle are also commonly used topically to soothe irritated and inflamed skin. Using herbs both topically and orally can provide greater benefits.
~
Enlist detox helpers. Once harmful chemicals are in your body, you want to do what you can to get them out. A number of dietary supplements, botanicals, foods, and specific cleansing diets can help detoxify many of these pollutants.
~
Seven of the top natural ingredients that offer powerful yet gentle whole-body detoxification are:
~
~ Medicinal mushrooms: Reishi, agaricus, cordyceps, coriolus, maitake, and umbellatus, along with many other types, help to remove toxins from the body. Detoxifying mushrooms can be cooked in meals, taken as supplements, or mixed in powdered form in hot water for tea.
~ Dandelion (leaf and root): Dandelion root provides powerful support for cleansing the liver and the gallbladder—two key organs essential for detoxification. The leaves also help flush toxins from the bladder and digestive tract. Dandelion can be eaten raw or cooked, taken in supplement form, or drunk as a tea.
~ Milk thistle seed: The herb’s seeds contain silymarin, a natural compound that is shown to be a potent liver protector and detoxifier. Milk thistle seeds support gall bladder health, as well, while also providing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Most often, milk thistle seed is taken as a supplement.
~ Garlic: Garlic contains many sulfur compounds and other active components to support detoxification, heavy metal removal, and overall immune health. It can be eaten raw or cooked, or taken in supplement form. Some people juice a small amount and mix it with other vegetable juices.
~ Modified citrus pectin and modified alginates formula: These two ingredients are shown to safely remove heavy metals and toxins from the digestive and circulatory systems, without affecting essential minerals. They are taken as a supplement.
~ Cilantro: A flavorful herb, cilantro binds to and helps remove heavy metals and toxins from the body. It also provides powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. The leaves and stems can be eaten raw in salads and salsas, juiced raw, or taken as a supplement.
~ Burdock root: This antioxidant, anti-inflammatory herb supports healthy liver detoxification and helps cleanse the circulation of toxins. It can be eaten raw in salads, cooked, or juiced; alternately, you can use it in tea or take it in supplement form.
~
Gentle seasonal detoxification is an important practice to adopt. Toxins multiply in our bodies from countless sources, not just shampoo and skin-care products.
~
Good information translates into good choices. Pay close attention to ingredient lists, research anything that troubles you, and, from there, you can adopt the best strategies to reduce these harmful effects. Simply “rinse and repeat”—this time using healthy cleansers made from plant-based ingredients.
