Soy? No Thanks!

Soy contains trypsin inhibitors that inhibit protein digestion and affect pancreatic function.
Soy contains phytic acid, which reduces absorption of minerals like calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.
Soy increases our requirement for vitamin D, which 50% of American are already deficient in.
Soy phytoestrogens disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and to promote breast cancer in adult women.
Vitamin B12 analogs in soy are not absorbed and actually increase the body’s requirement for B12.
Processing of soy protein results in the formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.
Free glutamic acid or MSG, a potent neurotoxin, is formed during soy food processing and additional amounts are added to many soy foods to mask soy’s unpleasant taste. Soy can stimulate the growth of estrogen-dependent tumors and cause thyroid problems, especially in women.

Change Your Thinking

It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking..
Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.
One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window.
The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end.
They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..
Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.
The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene. One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.
Although the other man could not hear the band – he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.
Days, weeks and months passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.
She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.
As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.
It faced a blank wall..
The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.
The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.
She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’
Epilogue:
There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.
Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.
Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present.
The origin of this letter is unknown, but you may share it with others for who knows, it may change their way of thinking…..

Saving Food From The Fridge: It Will Taste Better, May Even last Longer, And Reduce Your Energy Bills

Fridges are a recent invention; for thousands of years, people lived without them, but had many low-tech ways of making food last. Today most fridges are filled with stuff that would last just as long and probably would taste a lot better if it was never lost in the back of the fridge. They are expensive air conditioned parking lots for what Shay Salomon called “compost and condiments.” http://www.treehugger.com/kitchen-design/saving-food-fridge-it-will-taste-better-may-even-last-longer-and-reduce-your-energy-bills.html

Can Nutrition Reduce Violence In Prisons?

Encouraging healthier eating could be the government’s secret weapon in the fight against crime, according to experts. A study by researchers at the University of Oxford published in 2002 has found that adding vitamins and other vital nutrients to young people’s diets can cut crime. They found that improving the diets of young offenders at a maximum security institution in Buckinghamshire cut offences by 25%. The study – one of the first to show a scientific link between healthy eating and crime – has now been extended to see if the findings can be applied to the population in general. http://www.foodmatters.tv/_webapp_195121/Can_Nutrition_Reduce_Violence_In_Prisons

Crops being sprayed with MSG, glutamic acid as chemical growth enhancers

Many Natural News readers know of government requirements for irradiating raw almonds and herbs, destroying their nutritional value, under the guise of food safety. This and pasteurizing milk are but two examples of how federal agencies are destroying our food’s nutrition. Not so many health conscious consumers know of crops being sprayed with the essence of MSG, glutamic acid or free glutamates. Emerald BioAgriculture got EPA approval to allow use of their growth enhancer AuxiGro on crops in all states. They are trying to get approval for using AuxiGro on organic crops as well.

Scientists created bird flu superbug that could set off next global pandemic

During roughly the same time period that health experts worldwide have been warning that the infamous H5N1 avian flu virus could soon morph into a highly-transmissible, exceedingly-deadly “super strain” capable of killing millions, scientists from around the world have been exposed deliberately developing such a strain in laboratories. http://www.naturalnews.com/034822_bird_flu_superbug_global_pandemic.html
