So far, 10,000 cases of the Kellogg’s® Eggo®Nutri-Grain®Whole Wheat Waffles have been pulled from the shelves. No illnesses have occurred from the possible listeria contamination, as the bacteria was discovered during routine testing at their Battle Creek, Michigan production facility.

The recalled waffles have been distributed in 25 states:

CO, CT, DE, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, VA, VT, WI, WY

The only affected products are the 10 count, 12.3 ounce containers of the waffles with expiration dates between Nov. 21 and Nov. 22, 2017 and the UPC code 3800 40370.

If you have purchased a package of waffles affected by the recall, you are advised to throw it away immediately. Contact Kellogg at 1-800-962-1413 on Monday through Friday from 10am to 6pm to receive a full refund for your product. You may also contact them via their website.

Symptoms of listeriosis can occur 3 to 70 days after the initial contamination. According to the National Health Service, you may be experiencing listeriosis if you are experiencing:

  • A high temperature (fever) 100.4F or above
  • Muscle ache or pain
  • Chills
  • Feeling or being sick
  • Diarrhea

For most people, the bacteria will go away on its own, though it can be especially damaging to pregnant women as it can cause miscarriages and stillbirths. It can also be dangerous for those who have a compromised immune system or for the elderly population.

Activist group The Council of Canadians launched the boycott last week amid news that Nestlé outbid the Township of Centre Wellington, Ont. for a well that could have given it a new water supply.

A Nestlé spokesman said the company didn’t know it was competing with a municipality, but it nevertheless matched their offer to complete the purchase from the Middlebrook Water Company for “future business growth.”

“The water crisis is at our door here in Canada,” said Maude Barlow, chairwoman of the Council of Canadians, in a statement.

“Groundwater resources are finite and currently taxed by droughts, climate change and over-extraction. At this pace, we will not have have enough for our future needs. We must safeguard groundwater reserves for communities and future generations.”

What You Can Do

The group is asking people who support the boycott to sign an online declaration that aims to stop Nestlé from profiting from bottled water.

“In the middle of a severe drought in southern Ontario, bottled water giant Nestlé continues to extract four million litres of groundwater every day from an aquifer near Guelph,” the declaration says.

“Nestlé pays less than $15 per day for this precious resource and then ships it out of the community in hundreds of millions of single use plastic bottles for sale all over North America — at an astronomical mark up.”

Last year, a widely circulated petition in B.C. took aim at bottling companies like Nestlé that were drawing water in B.C. for $2.25 per million litres, at the same time that wildfires raged throughout the province.

The petition, which attracted over 230,000 signatures, demanded that Nestlé pay more to draw the water.

The Council of Canadians declaration isn’t asking for Nestlé to be charged more; instead, it wants to “stop Nestlé from profiting from water” altogether.

Nestle Brands to Boycott

nestle-products-lg

The petition is asking supporters to avoid buying bottled water or any Nestlé products.

“Wasting our limited groundwater on frivolous and consumptive uses such as bottled water is madness,” it said.

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said Friday that the provincial government would look at ways to ensure community needs were met over those of bottled water companies.

“As we look at the water bottling industry, that has to be a question because we’re talking about what we could argue is our most precious resource,” she said.

“There is much pressure on our water, so as we have this discussion about our water, the status of and the treatment of water bottling companies, that needs to be taken into consideration.”

The recipe at the bottom allows you to easily use this amazing root for a myriad of ailments.
Ginger is high in potassium and manganese, which are very important for heart function. Manganese  builds resistance to disease and protects the lining of the heart and circulatory system.  Ginger is loaded with silicon. It contributes to healthy skin, hair, teeth and nails.  It contains Vitamins A, C, E, and the B complex, along with magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, iron, zinc, calcium, and beta-carotene.

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products found that crude ginger extracts and gingerol derivatives could prevent joint inflammation. A later study, published in Phytotherapy Research, discovered that ginger could alleviate neuropathic pain in rats.

Ginger contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols which help treat joint, muscle, and nerve pain. Ginger has also been scientifically proven is case series studies to help prevent migraine headaches when taken regularly.

How to Make Ginger Water to Treat Migraines, Heart Burn, Joint and Muscle Pain

Ingredients

  • 1-2 inches of fresh ginger root
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1/2 lemon
  • raw honey

Directions

First, you need to grate the ginger. Zester works well for this purpose. Add 2-3 cups of water and the juice of half a lemon. Stir in some honey. Your pain reliever is ready for use. Enjoy it every day, and watch your ache disappear.

All forms of regular exercise can be the best anti aging remedy. It improves immune system, lowers blood pressure, burns fat, improves the quality of sleep and more. Daily exercise would not only keep you young but also boost mood.

The Best Anti-Aging Medicine!

strong-arms_tn

Exercise. Regular exercise can not only help you feel fit, exercise can fight aging at the cellular level and mitigate or reverse its negative effects. Feeling as if it may be too late for you? There is great news: research shows that even if you start exercising later in life, it still has a powerful impact upon health and longevity.

How Does It Work?

A 2013 Harvard study found that exercise can be at least as effective as prescription drugs when it comes to the prevention of conditions such as heart disease, stroke or diabetes. Even a lack of muscle is now seen, not as a side-effect of frailty or disease..but as a cause.

factors_in_aging_tnExercise can help prevent the shortening of our telomeres. Exercise reduces the shortening, it lengthens and creates healthy telomeres. Telomeres are essentially protective caps that are like bookends on the ends of our chromosomes which help protect our DNA. When our cells divide, and with each division, our telomeres naturally and gradually shorten. This gradual shortening leads to the aging of the cell. But the process can be accelerated by obesity, smoking, insomnia, diabetes, poor diet and other aspects of health and lifestyle. When the telomere becomes too short and frayed, the cell dies (think faster aging).

Super-Boost Your Telomere Health, Today! With Epitalon!!

Epitalon_Telomerase_longevite_web-300x201-300x201

Research has shown that exercise has anti-inflammatory benefits. It has been found that, in general, people who exercise have lower levels of inflammation, which is one way to help your body stay young – as low-level inflammation hastens aging. Low-level inflammation is the core cause of most illness, disease, faster-aging and weight gain.

Daily Tips

haventseenadoctor_tn

Do something every day to challenge your body. Ensure you add activity to your daily life. If you are sedentary, start out with small goals such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Research shows that even moderate exercise has powerful effects. To reap the benefits, you must be consistent which means scheduling your exercise and honoring that time and day as you would a doctor appointment.

7 Symptoms Of Aging vs. Benefit Of Exercises

running_tn

  1. Increased susceptibility to disease: Improves immune system function and telomere health
  2. Loss of muscle and increased body fat: Aids in loss of fat and builds muscle
  3. Increased risk of a cardiac event (heart attack, stroke): Lowers blood pressure, improves circulation, lowers cholesterol
  4. Slowing of mental function and alertness: Improves reaction times, mental clarity and increases brain volume.
  5. Insomnia: Improves quality of sleep
  6. Depression: Relieves stress, improves self-esteem and outlook
  7. Immobility and susceptibility to falls: Improves balance and coordination

Many of the changes that people attribute to aging are actually caused by disuse. Using your body will keep it young. All forms of exercise boosts mood and improves sleep, countering anxiety and depression. In addition, exercise improves reflex time and helps stave off age-related memory loss.



Resource on Telomeres

Gene expression is different in young, middle-aged, and old individuals. The body times the life cycle using gene expression. In childhood, genes dictate the body to grow, in the middle age they maintain the body strong and healthy, and in the old age they dictate the body to stop releasing vital hormones, thus slowing down life processes and destroying the body.

Telomerase (a.k.a. telomere terminal transferase) is the enzyme capable to elongating telomeres in human bodies while protecting the DNA from the damage caused by aging. When cells multiply, they are set a predefined number of cycles they can perform the divisions due to the permanent curtailment of telomeres. In Mr. Khavinson’s studies, Epitalon treated cells made a total of forty-four passages (ten extra divisions compared to normal cells). Thus, the studies support the evidence that Epitalon prolongues the life of cells due to overcoming of the Heyflick division limit.

Imagine the boost one can have with Exercise and the addition of Epitalon! You can begin to apply these findings immediately, because it’s available now through OceansLab.

Chances are, it’s the second option. Last year at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado, Dad & Dude’s Breweria took a bold new step into the unknown when they unveiled their new cannabis-infused beer to the masses. By all accounts, the beer is quite tasty indeed, offering up many of the characteristics of a traditional IPA but with a considerably sweeter finish.

You might be reading this and wondering if the world has gone completely mad. How can they legally infuse one drug with another? Well, the trick is in the fact that it’s not actually the kind of cannabis that has you getting high or ravenously seeking out the nearest stash of salty snacks.

Dad & Dude’s, like a number of other breweries around the globe who are trying their hand at this zany new concoction, use hemp extracts which have been stripped of THC. Less popularly known as tetrahydrocannabinol, THC is the psychoactive ingredient of cannabis which creates that “stoned” effect after a long drag on a spliff, bong or any other pot smoker’s tool of trade.

The result is a beer which contains much of the sweet, herbaceous taste of hemp but without the complications of the psychoactive components found in marijuana. Despite this, the legal standpoint of the combination is still a little shady, and its history has been anything but smooth. The first commercially produced beer infused with hemp oil extract was produced in 1996 in Berlin, Germany. Failing to gain a foothold in the competitive beer industry, it wasn’t until 2001 with the release of Weissenohe Brewery’s “Cannabis Club Suds” that people started to warm up to the idea.

Eventually, the hemp beer fever spread. By 2005, breweries in the Czech Republic began to produce their own cannabis and beer combinations, with the beer becoming an instant hit. Since then, cannabis beer has proliferated throughout the continent, particularly in Central European supermarkets and liquor stores.

In the U.S., however, things got off to a slightly slower start. In 2005, Lagunitas Brewing Company had its brewing license suspended after police made marijuana arrests at the brewery. Meanwhile, Oskar Blues released “Pinner,” an IPA which suggestively contains small amounts of marijuana… this time with the THC intact. Later, Michigan’s Dark Horse Brewing Co. was forced to change the name of its beer from “Smells Like Weed IPA” to “Smells Like a Safety Meeting.” Clearly, the ever-changing legal framework governing cannabis-infused beer reflects the dynamics and confusion surrounding the legalization of cannabis in the U.S. in general.

Is it safe to mix cannabis and alcohol?

Surprisingly, mixing cannabis and alcohol is common practice, intended to provide an amplified experience by combining two consciousness-altering drugs. Ultimately, the answer to the question of whether it is safe to mix cannabis and alcohol (including beer!) is no. When people smoke or ingest cannabis at the same time as they’re consuming alcohol, they can experience a wide range of unpredictable effects, including nausea, vomiting, panic attacks, anxiety or paranoia. Those who are mentally unstable, suffer from anxiety or depression, or who are prone to rapid mood swings are particularly at risk of mixing these two drugs.

After recognizing the potentially dangerous effects that cannabis adds to alcohol, it’s perhaps not surprising to learn that cannabis-infused beer has received a mixed response both in Europe and the U.S. But while some breweries are walking a dangerous line by adding THC-rich strains of cannabis to their beer, most only add hemp oils, which don’t contain the mind-altering THC compounds.

Health benefits of hemp

hemp_tn

Despite the fact that hemp contains almost no THC, and therefore cannot be considered a drug, it’s taxonomic similarity to marijuana has ensured a troubled history for this versatile crop. Up until the late 1800s, hemp was valued throughout the United States for its versatility and ease of cultivation. George Washington himself was said to be a huge fan of the stuff, growing his fair share of hemp and stating “make the most of hemp, grow it everywhere.”

But as hemp production continued to grow, competing industries decided to take action before they themselves were left in the dust. In particular, the paper and timber industries worked hard to demonize and undermine the good standing of hemp, employing their control of the newspapers to turn public opinion against the crop. By the early 1900s, hemp had essentially been outlawed in the U.S., despite many people questioning the new laws which had come into effect.

It’s not until recent years and countless studies later that hemp production has started to regain its foothold in America. The overwhelming evidence in favor of hemp has made it almost impossible for the United States Department of Agriculture to continue their anti-hemp stance, however, the legalization of this crop throughout the country has been haphazard to say the least.

Hemp is one of the most nutritionally dense plants on the planet. The seeds and oils from hemp provide a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, helping to balance out the Western diet’s prevalence of inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids. They’re also a great source of protein, and due to their high concentration of amino acids, they are considered to be one of the best and most complete sources of protein that a human can eat.

Hemp oil and hemp seeds have been well-studied. Their health benefits include:

  • Improving cardiovascular health
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Increasing blood flow and circulation
  • Aiding digestion
  • Improving satiety and encouraging healthy weight
  • Boosting energy
  • Balancing cholesterol
  • Fighting cancer
  • Alleviating inflammatory conditions like arthritis
  • Reducing UVA and UVB sun damage

As if all these benefits weren’t enough, hemp can be used for a vast range of other applications. The fiber from this plant can be used to produce environmentally-friendly paper, biodegradable plastics, fibers for clothing and textiles, and even clean-burning fuel. Added to this the fact that hemp grows quickly, doesn’t deplete the soil of nutrients, and can be cultivated in a range of environments, and you start to see why our friend George Washington was so crazy about the stuff.

And this, in my opinion, provides the answer to the question of this article: is mixing hemp and beer good or bad? After reading the above, how could it not be a good thing? Hemp provides such an amazing range of health benefits, all of which will be imparted into the beer. Plus, it sounds as if it makes the beer taste great as well. That’s a win-win if you ask me!

Cinnamon, because of its miraculous health benefits, was once as valuable as gold. Many health experts have studied these miraculous benefits and have approved them. Here are 7 of them for you:

1. They May Help Treat Type 2 Diabetes

There is no cure for Type 2 diabetes, but there are ways to manage it and keep it under control. Cinnamon can reduce your blood pressure and have a positive impact on the blood markers of those with Type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon also helps in reducing insulin resistance. It also forces on the muscle cells to force them to remove sugar from the bloodstream, converting it to energy.

2. Cinnamon Can Lower The Bad Cholesterol

This property is indirectly linked to controlling your Type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon improves the serum glucose, lowers fasting blood glucose, and reduces triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol. These properties can help control diabetes and hereditary cholesterol worries.

3. Cinnamon Has Antifungal, Antibacterial, And Antiviral Properties

During the Middle Ages, cinnamon was used to preserve food due to lack of refrigeration, and added to its flavor. The antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties of cinnamon saves food from getting spoiled soon.
Cinnamon helps in all kinds of problems related to lungs. Cinnamon is an excellent spice to cure all sorts of lung congestion issues. It helps in clearing up mucus and encourages circulation. It’s antiviral properties also help in curing colds and flu.

4. Cinnamon Can Help In Treating Symptoms Of Alzheimer’s And Parkinson’s

These two incurable neurological diseases need enormous amount of treatment just to keep it in control. Cinnamon has shown to help neurons and improve the motor functions of those who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

5. Cinnamon May Have Anti-Carcinogenic Properties

Today, almost all food can either contribute to or prevent the chances of cancer. Cinnamon is one of such foods, which may help prevent cancer, though the studies are only limited to animals so far. But the antioxidants present in them may help keeping cancer at bay.

6. Cinnamon Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Specific inflammation can be reduced with cinnamon, especially certain types of pain and headaches. It also boost circulation to the joints, relieving you from pain in arthritis.

7. Cinnamon Can Help You Manage PCOs

PCOs come with numerous symptoms and problems that needs to be managed. Cinnamon helps in regulating insulin resistance in women with PCOs, making weight management easier for them. It also helps them mitigate heavy menstrual bleeding, and other common conditions related to female health, such as endometriosis, menorrhagia, and uterine fibroid.

Out of all the pressures we face in our everyday lives, there’s no denying that the nature of time has the most profound effect. As our days, weeks, months, and years go by, time moves from past to present to future, and never the other way around.

But according to the physics that govern our Universe, the same things will occur regardless of what direction time is travelling in. And now physicists suggest that gravity isn’t strong enough to force every object in the Universe into a forward-moving direction anyway.

So does time as we know it actually exist, or is it all in our heads? First off, let’s run through a little refresher about the so-called arrow of time.

Thanks to the forward-facing arrow of time, young becomes old, and the past becomes the present, which was once the future. You can’t unscramble your eggs, and you can’t Control Z a broken leg.

But if we forget our own perspective for a second, zoom right out, and look at the Universe as a whole, as far as we can tell, the only thing that governs the behaviour of the Universe are the laws of physics.

And the problem is that all but one of these laws are considered to be completely time-reversible – meaning that the same effects will occur, regardless of whether time is running forwards or backwards.

“Whether through Newton’s gravitation, Maxwell’s electrodynamics, Einstein’s special and general relativity, or quantum mechanics, all the equations that best describe our Universe work perfectly if time flows forward or backward,” Lee Billings writes for Scientific American.

One example of this ‘time-reversible’ quality in the Universe is the path of a planet orbiting a star, according to the force of gravity.

“Whether time runs forwards or backwards, planetary orbits follow the exact same paths. The only difference is the direction of the orbit,” Brendan Cole explained for us earlier in the year.

So time is subjective? That might be what Einstein’s special theory of relativity says, but there’s a little something called second law of thermodynamics.

According to the second law of thermodynamics, as time goes by, the amount of disorder – or entropy – in the Universe will always increase. This goes back to those scrambled eggs – once they’ve been disordered, you can’t go back and lessen the amount of disorder applied to a particular system.

“Physicists have, for this reason, reluctantly settled on the second law as the source of time’s arrow: disorder always has to increase after something happens, which requires that time can only move in one direction,” Cole explains.

If it’s all starting to sound a bit messy to you, that’s because it is.

Many physicists now suspect that when gravity forces enough tiny particles to interact with each other, the forward-facing arrow of time emerges, and entropy can increase. The rules then change to favour a more directionless Universe only once these tiny particles start interacting with much larger things.

But for that to work, entropy must have increased, which means the Universe had to have started off more ordered than it is now – something that some physicists have tried to explain by suggesting there are parallel universes where time runs forwards, backwards, sideways, you name it.

In an effort to get to the bottom of one of the biggest conundrums in modern science, a pair of physicists decided to test the assumption that gravity is the force behind all this craziness.

The point at which particles are thought to transition from being governed by the arrow of time to being governed by the directionless laws of the Universe is known as decoherence.

As Nick Stockton explains for Wired, the most prominent hypothesis explaining decoherence is the Wheeler-DeWitt equation, which predicts when the seams between quantum and classical mechanics are erased thanks to gravity.

But when physicists Dmitry Podolsky, from Harvard University, and Robert Lanza, head of Astellas Global Regenerative Medicine, ran measurements of gravity through the Wheeler-DeWitt equation, they found that once you do the maths, the equation doesn’t explain how time’s forward-moving direction actually emerges.

In fact, according to their results, gravity’s effects kick in far too slowly to account for a universal arrow of time.

As Stockton points out, if gravity is too weak to be the thing that’s holding an interaction between molecules together as they ‘decohere’ into something larger, it can’t possibly be strong enough to force them into the same direction, time-wise.

“Our paper shows that time doesn’t just exist ‘out there’ ticking away from past to future, but rather is an emergent property that depends on the observer’s ability to preserve information about experienced events,” Lanza writes forDiscover.

This suggests that time’s arrow is subjective, and determined by the observer, which means us.

“In his papers on relativity, Einstein showed that time was relative to the observer,” Lanza told Wired. “Our paper takes this one step further, arguing that the observer actually creates it.”

The idea is of course controversial, because as Yasunori Nomura, a physicist at UC Berkeley who was not involved in the study, points out, the pair have failed to take the fabric of spacetime into consideration, and have to introduced a quality into the equation – ‘observer time’ – that no one’s even sure is real.

“The answer depends on whether the concept of time can be defined mathematically without including observers in the system,” says Nomura.

If we want to explain the strangeness of time in the Universe, we’re not there yet, but as Lanza and Podolsky suggest, maybe we’re missing something. And as researchers suggested earlier this year, could that something be dark energy?

For countless years people have valued the stable, nutrient-rich fats which came from the animals they raised. Even until recently, beef tallow was the chosen fat in the Western food industry (fast-food restaurant chains included) for high-heat frying and cooking due to its legendary stability and delicious flavor.

Following untruthful yet damning information from the U.S. government around the 1970s, however, tallow and other vegetable fats rapidly attained an unfair stigma. The vegetable oil industry swooped in, promising a ban from supposedly unhealthy saturated fats but in truth bringing in a far more dangerous era of trans fats. Unsurprisingly, heart disease and cardiovascular conditions skyrocketed, despite the western world turning its back on saturated fat.

trans-fats_tn

Even though the original report alleged that saturated fat was harmful to our health, scientific evidence continued to suggest otherwise. As the irrefutable evidence in support of saturated fat began to pile up, governments around the world slowly began to change their stance on the matter. While the U.S. government has taken back much of its hatred of animal fats and other oils containing large amounts of saturated fat, the long-standing stigma has become so ingrained in the American psyche that most people still can’t bring themselves to recognize just how important it is for their health.

Well, folks, it’s time to erase the dietary mistakes of the last 40 years and bring something which is overwhelming good back into our lives. Saturated fats, when they are sourced from happy, healthy, free-range animals, provide a vast array of vital nutrients, energy and body-supporting compounds. Perhaps more importantly, they do not make you fat!

Beef tallow can be one of the healthiest and most versatile cooking oils you have in your kitchen, provided you source it from the right animals. Your beef tallow should come from grass-fed, organic, humanely-raised cows, and should be minimally processed. If you get your hands on some quality tallow, here’s some of the wonderful things it can bring into your life.

free-range-cows_tn

1. It’s cost effective

Compared to other fats and cooking oils, beef tallow is amazingly cheap. Due to the unwarranted fear that tallow and other animal fats still elicit in most people, it’s in low demand, and what tallow you can get your hands on is always cost effective. In some cases, it’s even free! While back in the day butchers would have recognized the value of tallow and priced it accordingly, today’s meat dealers are either throwing the stuff away or selling it for pennies. Head down the right butcher and they’ll probably be happy to give you a big tub of the stuff for free! Just make sure you only use the tallow from organic, grass-fed cows, as many of the toxins can be transferred to the fat otherwise.

2. It’s a great source of saturated fat

There would have been a time when a heading like that might have sent people running for the hills, but that time is happily over! Beef tallow is one of the best sources of healthy saturated fats, which provide an excellent energy source for the human body. While our bodies can run on both glucose (sugar) and fat, they function far more efficiently on fat… and the best kind is saturated.

Many of the most common diseases plaguing Americans today, including metabolic syndrome, diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, are caused by an over-abundance of dietary sugars and a lack of nutrients. Sugar breeds addiction, causing people to become more and more reliant on sweet foods and therefore more and more unhealthy. Getting plenty of saturated fat from sources like tallow helps to break that addiction, triggering satiety hormones, providing bucketloads of nutrients and forcing your body to function more efficiently.

3. It fights cancer

It might not be much to look at, but beef tallow is dynamite when it comes to keeping the ravages of cancer at bay. Research conducted by the Department of Cell Biology and Human Anatomy at UC Davis indicated that beef tallow prohibited the development of metastatic breast tumors. The study found that mice fed conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in conjunction with beef tallow had fewer metastatic breast tumors than another group which was fed a vegetable fat blend.

Scientists from the study concluded that the fatty acids in the beef tallow “may increase the efficacy of dietary CLA in reducing mammary tumorigenesis.” In short, the saturated fat in beef tallow enabled the mice to more efficiently break down and utilize essential nutrients, giving them an advantage over the growth of cancerous tumors.

4. It’s great for your skin

Historically, beef tallow was used as a key ingredient in skincare concoctions and recipes. In fact, many companies continue to use it in their high-cost beauty products today, although they’d be hard pressed to admit it! Much of the skin-nurturing benefits of tallow are owed to its surprising similarity to our own skin cells, with both beef tallow and our skin containing 50 to 55 percent saturated fat content. This means that a lot of the nutrients contained in beef tallow head straight to your skin, helping to maintain skin integrity, tone and elasticity.

In addition, tallow is chock full antioxidants and nutrients, including vitamins A, D, E and K. It also contains palmitoleic acid, which has anti-microbial properties, and conjugated linoleic acid, which is super anti-inflammatory and helps prevent certain cancers, including those of the skin. For this reason, tallow is one of the most powerful skin-nurturing products in the world. And the best part? It’s completely natural!

How to use beef tallow

First, you need to find a good place to get your beef tallow. Certain butchers pride themselves on stocking good quality, organic, grass-fed beef, so they’re often a good place to ask whether they’re willing to sell (or give!) you some tallow. If you can’t track down any good butchers, join a good farm cooperative — these are a great way to get meat and other farm products straight from the source, and they’re usually composed of farms which only use sustainable farming methods.

If none of that works out and you can’t source some good quality tallow, simply save any grass-fed beef fat you don’t eat and use it to make your own. The following video walks you through the steps of making tallow from suet.

Store your rendered beef tallow in the fridge when you’re not using it (it will turn hard when cooled below room temperature) and simply scoop out a healthy chunk when you’re ready to cook with it. Place it in the pan, set to low heat so that it melts and covers the pan and start cooking! It’s great for stir-frying, sautéing, roasting, grilling and just about anything you can think of which requires high heat!

President Nixon and the Congress declared war on cancer in 1971, but unfortunately, nothing important happened since then.

Comparing to our cell phones now that are more powerful than our computers, modern science was not able to bring us closer to eradicating cancer even after 40 years.

Unfortunately, cancer rates have only managed to increase during this span of time. You can realize on your own that cancer is so spread because there is always someone around you who has cancer, is dying from it or is already dead.

Why has “the War on Cancer” Failed so Miserably?

your-body-is-acidic-here-is-what-you-need-to-do-the-real-truth-behind-cancer-that-you-will-never-hear-from-your-doctor_tn

According to the Skeptical Inquirer, Reynold Spector, these are the six reasons for the failure:

  • Screening for useful drugs against cancer cells has not worked
  • Animal models of cancer are often inadequate
  • We don’t understand the cause/pathogenesis in most cases of cancer
  • Most treatments (except surgery) are nonspecific cell killers and not “smart”
  • Clinical trials and the grant system don’t foster innovation
  • Unproductive “fads” in research come and go

Even though these six reasons may factor into the equation of failure, I personally think that the following list is yet another example of what’s wrong with the entire system, which is actually ignoring the fact that cancer is a man-made disease that is caused by toxic overload.

Several months ago, I conducted a study on ancient mummies which showed that cancer is not a natural disease at all and the primary factor is not genetics as people tend to believe.

Modern times have brought pollution and poor diet which resulted in higher rates of cancer. So the question is why medical and science communities are ignoring these basics?

Getting to the Root of the Problem

In my opinion, cancer is spreading more and more every day because most of the research is directed towards expensive drugs that target late stages of the disease, rather than on the root of the problem.

I belive that if people start leading more healthy life and consume healthy foods, they will be able to eliminate the risk of most cancers.

Nowadays, the major and primary factors that are fueling our cancer epidemic are environmental and lifestyle factors and they include:

  • Wireless technologies, dirty electricity, and medical diagnostic radiation exposure
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Obesity, stress, and poor sleeping habits
  • Pesticide- and other chemical exposures
  • Processed and artificial foods (plus the chemicals in the packaging)
  • Lack of sunshine exposure and use of sunscreens

The pharmaceutical researchers convince people that they are doing anything in their power to find the cure, but we only see a research into newer drug therapies. It is more than clear that they are not digging close enough to the root of the problem.

When it comes to cancer, you ignore lifestyle factors at your own peril, because drug-based solutions are not making a dent in this dangerous and progressive disease.

People should all be aware of the fact that cancer drugs are actually toxic and come with devastating, including lethal, side effects.

Even though the drugs are not effective when it comes to prolonging or improving the quality of life to cancer patients, the conventional medicine is still desperately trying to give the illusion of fighting the good fight against this terrible disease.

Several studies have recently discovered that Avastin, the best selling cancer drug is not effective at all and it has the most dangerous side effects, which is why it has been phased out as a treatment for metastatic breast cancer.

REAL Cancer Advancements that Need to Become Mainstream Knowledge

Unless people begin to take cancer prevention seriously, the rates of cancer patients will double between 2000 and 2020, and nearly triple by 2030.

In order to prevent cancer, the medical community must stop overlooking the methods that can actually have a significant impact.

There are 3 advancements when it comes to cancer that merit a special mention. They haven’t been accepted by conventional medicine yet, but they must be at any cost.

Number 1: Vitamin D

Vitamin D deficiency plays a huge role in cancer development. According to researchers, about 30% of cancer deaths (2 million people worldwide and 200,000 in the U.S.) could be prevented every year just by optimizing the vitamin D levels in the general population.

All you have to do in order to decrease your risk of cancer by more than half is to optimize your vitamin D levels with sun exposure.

On the other hand, millions of people around the world have an increased risk of cancer because they are deficient in vitamin D due to lack of sun exposure.

As we previously mentioned, vitamin D is crucial when it comes to preventing cancer but it also offers protection in a number of other ways, including:

  • Causing cells to become differentiated (cancer cells often lack differentiation)
  • Reducing the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning cancerous
  • Regulating genetic expression
  • Increasing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which, if allowed to replicate, could lead to cancer)
  • Reducing the spread and reproduction of cancer cells

Number 2: Optimizing Your Insulin Levels

In order to lower your risk of cancer you need to normalize your insulin levels. The research conducted by Otto Warburg showed that cancer cells require more sugar to thrive, for which he won a Nobel Prize in 1934.

Sadly, not many ongologist nowadays appreciate or apply this knowledge.

People should stop incorporating too much sugar In their body since high insulin levels can cause major damage to the organism. Diabetes is the most common health condition that occurs due to insulin imbalance.

In one of my most popular articles, Insulin and its Metabolis Effects, Ron Rosedale, M.D, said:

“It doesn’t matter what disease you are talking about, whether you are talking about a common cold or cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis or cancer, the root is always going to be at the molecular and cellular level, and I will tell you that insulin is going to have its hand in it, if not totally control it.”

However, you can help yourself and prevent your insulin levels from becoming elevated in the first place just by limiting your intake of processed foods, grains and sugars/fructose as much as you can.

Number 3: Exercise

Even if it sounds unbelievable to you, exercise can slash your risk of cancer.

As we previously mentioned, optimizing your vitamin D levels and controlling your insulin levels are the two of the most powerful steps you can take to reduce your cancer risk and you can achieve this by exercising.

According to some studies, people who are physically active experience about half the incidence of colon cancer as oppose to those who lead sedentery lifestyle.

Moreover, women who exercise on a regular basis can reduce their breast cancer risk by 20 to 30% compared to those who are physically inactive.

As you all know, your immune system is your first line of defence against any kind of health problem, so you should exercise more because it improves the circulation of immune cells in your blood.

When it comes to exercising, the key is to do it properly, which means to esnure you are getting enough to achieve the benefit, but not too much to cause injury. People should look on exercise as some kind of drug that needs to be carefully prescribed in order to achieve its maximum benefit.

Winning the War Against Cancer Begins with Your Personal Choices

According to the conservative American Cancer Society, one third of cancer deaths are linked to carrying excess weight, poor diet and physical inactivity. As you can see, you can do a lot to prevent cancer.

In order to do that, you should make the following healthy lifestyle changes:

  1. Limitating your intake of processed foods and sugars/fructose as much as you can in order to control your insulin levels.
  2. Make sure to normalize your vitamin D levels with safe amounts of sun exposure. You should monitor your vitamin D levels throughout the year.
  3. Maintain an ideal body weight.
  4. Get enough high-quality sleep.
  5. Get appropriate amounts of omega-3 fats.
  6. Make sure to do some exercise on a regular basis because it helps you drive your insulin levels down. As a result, it will reduce your cancer risks.
  7. Consume vegetables as much as possible, but make sure they are fresh and organic. For instance cruciferous vegetables have been identified as having potent anti-cancer properties.
  8. Reduce your use of cell phones and other wireless technologies, and implement as many safety strategies as possible if/when you cannot avoid their use.
  9. Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. According to CDC, even 85% of disease is caused due to emotions. Make sure to controll your stress and emotions because this factor may be more important than all the other physical ones listed here.
  10. Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides, household chemical cleaners, synthetic air fresheners and air pollution.
