Our heart rhythms assaulted?

The human heart correlates with the Schumann Resonance of the earth. Wireless frequencies are millions of times faster than these natural rhythms. What does this say for the health of humans (unless their heart adapts) and especially children who are now living in a wifi world? Europe is way ahead of us in recognizing the hazards of electromagnetic frequencies on our bodies.

European Resolution Re: EMF and Human Health The Parliamentary Assembly of the 47-member Council of Europe passed a resolution on May 27, 2011 recommending sweeping changes to the way cell phones are used, how they are marketed, and how safe exposure limits are determined. “The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment,” resolution covers the effects of EMF fields on human health.  The Council of Europe  also advocates that electric power lines and inhabited dwellings be kept apart from each other at a safe distance, much farther than currently practiced in the building trade. They also say the siting of all new radio and cell phone antennas should be done so as to protect the health of nearby residents, not “solely according to the operators’ interests.”

Please take an interest in what these frequencies are doing. Just because cellular companies report “safe” rhetoric, do more research to see if they are just padding their case to inflate their bottom line. All of their research usually comes from the countries who opt out of EMF hazard research, like the USA. Be wary of articles that promote the RF safe cause and do you own research outside the propaganda box.  Maine is already getting aboard: California and Maine are the most heavily deployed states for the relatively new RF smart meter on your house .  Maine’s program is under audit, and Maine’s Supreme Court has ruled that the MPUC did not adequately address health concerns related to smart meters.

Scary news about cell phones.

RF-EMF emissions from wireless phones are class 1 human carcinogens

Using the long-established and respected Bradford Hill criteria for assessing causality, this paper shows that RF-EMF exposure from mobile (and cordless) phones should be regarded as an IARC class 1 human carcinogen (cancel causing agent). Current guidelines for exposure need to be urgently revised.

Wireless phones, i.e. mobile phones and cordless phones, emit radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) when used. An increased risk of brain tumors is a major concern. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) at the World Health Organization (WHO) evaluated the carcinogenic effect to humans from RF-EMF in May 2011. It was concluded that RF-EMF is a group 2B, i.e. a “possible”, human carcinogen.

Bradford Hill gave a presidential address at the British Royal Society of Medicine in 1965 on the association or causation that provides a helpful framework for evaluation of the brain tumour risk from RF-EMF.

All nine issues on causation according to Hill were evaluated. Regarding wireless phones, only studies with long-term use were included. In addition, laboratory studies and data on the incidence of brain tumours were considered.

The criteria on strength, consistency, specificity, temporality, and biologic gradient for evidence of increased risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma were fulfilled. Additional evidence came from plausibility and analogy based on laboratory studies.

Regarding coherence, several studies show increasing incidence of brain tumours, especially in the most exposed area. Support for the experiment came from antioxidants that can alleviate the generation of reactive oxygen species involved in biologic effects, although a direct mechanism for brain tumor carcinogenesis has not been shown. In addition, the finding of no increased risk for brain tumors in subjects using the mobile phone only in a car with an external antenna is supportive evidence. Hill did not consider it was essential, or even very likely, that all the listed criteria were likely to be fulfilled.

Corn in pet food not good!

DSC_0058Pet Foods with Plant-Derived Proteins May Contain More Harmful Toxins Than Pet Foods with Traditional Fish and Meat Proteins.’

We’ve been warning about GMO contaminated foods and this is a warning about pet foods. Although they don’t mention GMO, most of the corn (and wheat is suspect too) used in non-organic pet foods is GMO and this is an example of what can happen.

 

 The potential for an increase in deadly aflatoxins in pet food made with corn-based ingredients. The increased risk is due to extreme drought conditions in the U.S. Midwest. Aflatoxins are naturally-occurring mycotoxins produced by the Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus paraciticus species of fungi that grow on certain crops. Aflatoxins are highly carcinogenic. They poison the liver and promote tumor development. According to PetfoodIndustry.com: “Pet foods with plant-derived proteins may also contain more harmful toxins than pet foods with traditional fish and meat proteins, according to new research from the University of Guelph.” Animal and poultry science professor Trevor Smith at Guelph in Canada who has spent over three decades researching mycotoxins: “Although we have no exact numbers, we can estimate that when half of the food is of vegetable origin, there will almost always be some degree of contamination. If the food is mainly of animal origins, the chances of contamination are greatly reduced.” He counsels pet owners to minimize the risk by avoiding inexpensive pet foods containing vegetable cereals, corn or wheat fillers, and especially rice bran.

 

Aflatoxins frequently contaminate agricultural crops before they are harvested. Conditions that promote pre-harvest contamination include high temperatures, prolonged periods of drought, and insect activity. Aflatoxins can also be a problem after harvesting if the crop stays wet for too long. And they can grow on stored crops if the moisture level is too high and mold develops.The three plants with the highest rate of aflatoxin contamination are corn, peanuts and cottonseed. Processed foods containing corn can also carry a risk of aflatoxin adulteration. Infected corn and cottonseed meal fed to dairy cows has resulted in aflatoxin contamination of milk and other dairy products including cheese and yogurt.

 

Aflatoxicosis is chiefly a disease of the liver, causing GI symptoms, reproductive issues, anemia and jaundice. Certain types of aflatoxins are linked to cancer in animals. If your dog or cat ingests food contaminated with aflatoxins, you can anticipate one or more of these symptoms: severe, persistent vomiting; bloody diarrhea; lack of appetite; fever; sluggishness; discolored urine; jaundice, especially around the whites of the eyes, gums and belly. If you think your pet has eaten potentially contaminated food, even if he’s showing no symptoms of illness, get him to your veterinarian or an emergency vet clinic as soon as possible. And bring the food with you. Also talk with your holistic vet about natural liver detox agents like milk thistle, SAMe, and chlorophyll.

Helpers to reduce bone loss

Bone loss in menopausal and post-menopausal women is a great concern. We have been told to take calcium, but what kind… the controversy still rages. The big question is whatever kind of calcium you take, will it get absorbed? To do this you need co-factors like vitamin K-2. Without this form of vitamin K calcium cannot be properly metabolized and could cause cardiovascular problems.  An NIH study confirmed that calcium only (1000 mg/day) showed an increase in heart disease death, primarily in men. Magnesium is also needed because it  helps protect your bone health, according to MayoClinic.com. About half of the magnesium in the body is found in the bones. As the magnesium level decreases in bone, bone crystals become large, brittle and more likely to fracture. The Linus Pauling Institute notes that inadequate magnesium levels in blood serum result in low serum calcium levels; impaired hormone action; and interference with the effects of vitamin D, which can increase bone loss. Several studies suggest that magnesium supplementation may improve bone mineral density

 

Vitamin D is also necessary, in the D3 form helps regulate the minerals calcium and phosphorus in the body, promoting the absorption of calcium and helping prevent bone loss. Vitamin E tocotrienols are effective for bone resorption and inhibit osteoclast formation (large multinucleate cells that tear down bone). Some tests have shown that flaxseed oil as a fat source increases bone density because of the Alpha Linolenic Acid in the oil which also inhibits the activity of the osteoclasts and supports the osteoblasts (build bone). Fermented soy isoflavones also increase bone density by providing weak estrogenic effects on the bone since bone health is directly associated with lowering hormone levels.

 

The anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin can also help as high levels of C-Reactive Protein (a marker of inflammation) may be related to bone loss.  Collagen is a binding site for bone-health minerals and is critical to increasing bone mass. Nutrients that help in collagen production include vitamin C, D3 and those that block the anti-collagen amino acid such as vitamin B6, B12 and folic acid.  Another needed supplement is silica which keeps the bone-building process running smoothly bringing more calcium to the bone, allowing less to leach away from the bones and keeping the whole system balanced.

 

With this information you may be able to formulate a good program of supplements to avoid bone loss. For more information go to www.wh0lefoodsmagazine.com and search for the article “Women’s Health Update” by Kaylynn Chiarello-Ebner
