WARNING: Fish Oil Causes Brain Damage in Adults and Infants

April 28, 2010 2 comments

That’s right. Experiments performed between 1988 and 1992 conclusively showed abnormalities in brain tissue resulting from administration of fish oil. f anyone cared to look before issuing fish oil recommendations, here’s what the researchers reported in the article titled, “The Effects of Dietary n-3/n-6 Ratio on Brain Development in the Mouse: A Dose Response Study with Long-Chain n-3 Fatty Acids,” by P.E. Wainwright, et al., ‘Lipids’, Vol. 27, no 2 (19929, pages 98-103:

“Feeding of fish oil [omega-3 “derivatives”] to ADULT rats resulted in a rapid increase in levels of 22:5n-3 and 22:6n-3 as well as 20:5n-3 [omega 3 series] (which is usually present in brain tissue in only trace amounts) with corresponding decreases in 22:5n-6 as well as 20:4n-6 [omega 6 series], sugesting that THE BRAIN MAY BE VULNERABLE TO AN EXCESS OF long-chain n-3 PUFA [PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids].”

“The developing brain, because of its affinity for long-chain n-3, MAY BE PARTICULARLY SUCCEPTIBLE to such effects.”

“There is particular concern that the decreases in 20:4n-6 [omega 6 series] MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH ADVERSE EFFECTS.”

“Nevertheless, the findings may be of relevance to QUESTION THE CONCERNS regarding the provision of long-chain n-3 FA [from fish oil] IN HUMAN INFANT FEEDING.”

….

One must always exercise caution regarding animal studies’ application to humans. However, mice make good animal models in this respect since Lands et al. showed that EFA metabolism in rodents is similar to that in humans. (Lands WEM, Morris A, and Libelt B, “Quantitative effects of dietary polyunsaturated fats on the composition of fatty acids in rat tissues,” ‘Lipids’, Vol. 25, 1990, pages 505-51.)

Therefore overdosing on omega-3 can be hazardous to your brain and your health at any age.

Anyone could have found this information if they cared to look. I talk about all these technical terms in my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”, in much more detail so that you can easily understand in “real life terms” what all this scientific jargon really means to YOU.

More shocking information (and I go into detail about this in my book) is that …

Glycemic (blood sugar) control WORSENS during fish oil administration. (see my book for details).

You don’t want a substance to increase blood glucose or insulin levels, negatively impact natural tumor killers, or compromise your immune system.

If you pick up a copy of my book, you can discover why fish is not protective agains theart disease; it is excessive in the wrong type of omega-3 and ives you an overdose of it, too.

Fish oil does the OPPOSITE of what is desired in five areas: brain damage, decreasing natural tumor cell killing ability, increasing harmful infection from bacteria, failing to stop arterial inflammation, and raising havoc with your blood glucose system (insulin resistance).

With five strikes against it – the fish oil myth is out!

Cancer is NOT Genetic

April 23, 2010 2 comments

“The myth of the all-powerful gene is based on flawed science that discounts the environmental context in which we and our genes exist.”

“The language that geneticists use often carries considerable ideological baggage. molecular biologists, as well as the press, use verbs like ‘control’, ‘plan’, or ‘determine’ when speaking about what genes or DNA do. These are all inappropriate because they assign far too active a role to DNA. The fact is that DNA DOESN’T DO ANYTHING; it is a remarkably inert molecule. It just sits in our cells and waits for other molecules to interact with it.”

“Relatively few diseases or disabilities are genetic; even fewer can be predicted, and most of the risks we and our families encounter are not biological at all.”

“I am belaboring this point [referring to hemoglobin synthesis] because it is usually ignored. When scientists talk about genes ‘for’ this or that molecule, trait, or disease they are being fanciful. At present [1993] there is little by way of theory by which they [biologists] could predict how, or whether, a certain mutation in a gene will affect a cell or oganism.”

In the above exerpts from Dr. Ruth Hubbard and Elijah Wald’s groundbreaking book, “Exploding the Gene Myth: How Genetic Information is Produced and Manipulated by Scientists, Physicians, Employers, Insurance Companies, Educators, and Law Enforcers”, published in 1993, Professor Hubbard makes it clear that DNA doesn’t directly ‘do’ anything. She tells us how relatively few diseases are genetically-based. She makes it clear that there is little predictive capability about the impact of genetic mutations on the cell and orgasm.

If you would like to read more exerpts from this amazingly informative book, as well as learn why the fear of “genetic tendency for cancer” is simply not true, please read Appendix I in my book, “The Hidden Story of Cancer”. You can get a copy from http://www.brianpeskin.com.

Oxygen & The Cells

Achieving peak oxygen-absorbing function of ALL the trillions of cells that make up the body is the goal, because doing so is to greatly minimize the cells’ susceptibility to forming cancer. I have talked about this extensively in my book “The Hidden Story of Cancer”.

In the course of his research, Dr. Warburg designed equipment to measure the oxygen level in the body. Dr. Warburg conclusively showed that if there is just a 35% oxygen compromise (decrease in the tissue), then cancer develops – automatically! You didn’t do anything “wrong”, and you wouldn’t even know that this oxygen reduction is happening because you wouldn’t feel it. Does it make sense to stay “close to the edge” of the cancer cutoff point and risk contracting cancer? No.

Once again, cancer medical journal articles published in 1996 and 1997 make the decreased oxygen – increased cancer connection and increased spreading of localized cancer cleaer:

“Tumor oxygenation predicts for the likelihood of distant metastases [cancer spreading] oin human soft tissue sarcoma.” [1]

“Tumor hypoxia [too little oxygen in the cell] adversely affects the prognosis of carcinoma of the head and neck.” [2]

How can we detect and remedy such an oxygen-deficient condition?

Big & Strong… like Cow?

Infants on “soy formula” have experienced thyroid problems. How many people realize how damaging cow milk is to the human body?

In fact there is an 18% HIGHER incidence in autoimmune thyroid disease in infants on soy (see J Am Coll Nutr 1990, Apr; 9(2):164-167).

Not only that, another study showd that soy-formula infants went on to become diabetic twice as often compared to breast-fed infants (see J Am Coll Nutr, 1986; 5(5): 439-441).

Use real human mother’s milk, or goat milk; goat milk is much closer to human milk than cow’s milk.

Cow’s milk was made for cows, not for humans. Cows grow to within 80% of their full-grown weight within the first eight months of life. The brain development is MUCH less pronounced (how smart is a cow?). This is especially true when compared with humans who have rapid brain development in comparison to their bodies.

Do you want your child to grow up to be “as strong as a cow”?

Have you ever noticed that humans are the only mammals who continue to drink milk through their entire life? Have you ever seen an adult dog suckling at the teat of it’s mother? I didn’t think so. So why would nature make humans so weak they think they need milk their entire life? A mammal with a deficiency like that would have become extinct long ago.

Also, have you ever seen a cat regularly drinking the milk of a dog? No other mammal other than humans drink the milk of other animals. Why do we want to fill ourselves with COW HORMONES?!?

Milk processing nightmares aside… why would we? Have we already become as stupid as cows?

Think about it…

Brain Functions Best on Lactose NOT Glucose During Exercise

NEWSFLASH November 2008: The “Experts” are wrong again… the brain loves lactose during exercise!

Once again, the “experts” have misled us. First, they told us that our brain wants to run exclusively on sugar (glucose) and that sugar is its preferred fuel. This is absolutely incorrect. Your brain wants to run on ketones produced from burning your own bodyfat, NOT sugar. (see my book “The 24-Hour Diet” copyright 2009 pp 122-131 for the scientific proof of this). When carbohydrates are minimized, the brain naturally obtains all the energy it needs from running on your own bodyfat. It is only when overdosiing on carbs that this mechanism is short-circuited.

So now the truth has emerged that even during exercise, your brain runs on lactate from your muscles, not sugar (glucose).

From Medical News Today*:

Human Brain Feeds on Lactate Not Glucose During Exercise.

“Researchers in Denmark and The Netherlands have discovered that during exercise, the human brain shifts into a higher gear and uses an “alternative energy” source: it does not feed on glucose but on lactate.

“… above a certain level of exercise, as it becomes more strenuous, the muscles shift to another way of making energy, using anerobic respiration, which involves lactate production and does not use oxygen.

“The researchers showed not only that the brain runs on lactate during exercise, but it actually shifts into a higher gear in terms of activity. The said that the findings will open up new areas of brain research that will seek to understand what lactate does to the brain.

“The finding challenges a long held view that the brain is strictly a glucose fuel burner and that only the muscles switch to the lactate alternative. It also adds weight to the idea that lactate is not just a toxic byproduct of exercise, but a rich supplemental source of energy and that the body has sophisticated mechanisms for optimizing where it gets energy from.”

This research shows us that, contrary to popular belief, the brain functions best NOT on glucose, but on lactate during exercise [and on ketones from burning your own fat the rest of the time as the medical textbooks make clear]! The fact that ketones are the preferred brain fuel was known decades ago and published in the world’s leading medical textbooks. The “long-held view” that the brain wants glucose during exercise could have been checked and disproved quickly and easily by any nutritionist, sports doctor or health writer instead of their merely assuming the incorrect view. Be very careful of trusting the so-called “experts”.

The Parrots are the Problem

Scientists already know how to keep us lean-for-life but the popular press misinterprets most of what they say.

The cause of the weight and health problem is given as its solution! Although there have been attempts by nutritional authors to give you the full story about what is required to become lean-for-life and energized, most of their plans lack critical insight. By following incorrect nutritional recommendations, many of us have harmed our metabolisms. Improper nutrition has made us ill and overweight. We’ve become perpetually sick, overweight, and exhausted as a result.

Did you realize that when your body stores excess carbohydrates (sugar) as fat it is saving your life? It’s true. Your body is removing the sugar from your blood, since the sugar in your blood is regulated to very tight tolerances. Unfortunately, once removed from the blood, the sugar is stored as body fat. You’r fatter but still alive.

Look closely at the “facts” about what you “believe is correct” concerning eating habits, diet, and exercise, compared to the scientific facts.

In nutrition, science and “conventional wisdom” are at odds. Other fields like physics, engineering, or construction would never allow “conventional wisdom” to trump science. If what sounded right was used as fact, buildings would routinely collapse, televisions would blow up in your face and telephones would never work. There would be public outrage. But when it comes to our health, we seem to get absolutely nowhere. We are deluged almost daily with information on how sick, diabetic, and overweight everye is, yet the “solutions” provided are damaging our health or are just plain worthless. once you discover the science of how you really work, based on simple human physiology and biochemistry, becoming lean-for-life and energized is very easy.

The misinterpretation goes something like this:

A (scientist) to B: “According to Voet’s Biochemistry and other medical textbooks dietary fat CANNOT become body fat. The calorie theory is unscientific and misleading. But excess body fat is bad for people.”

B: “I know.”

B to C (nutritionist): “Too much body fat is bad for people.”

C: “Then we should tell everyone to eat low-fat”.

C to D (press): “We must stay away from fat because it’s bad!”

D: “Eating fat will kill you!”

Mass Media Reports: “If you eat fat you will get fat. Let’s have a walk-a-thon so everyone will know about the danger of dietary fat!”

We really must put an end to “parroting” misinformation.
