Brain Health

Did you know that your brain is 60% fat? Much of it is supposed to be EFA-based. With a potential EFA deficiency solved (and I talk about this in my books), your brain will run with maximum speed, better focus, better clarity and improved memory.

It is expected, although we have not proven, that Alzheimer’s occurrences would decrease if EFA deficiencies were eliminated.

ADD and ADHD have become rampant illnesses with no end in sight. A significent number of ADD children (40%) had significant deficiencies of EFAs as measured in their blood in studies*.

Children with attention issues have been seen to improve dramatically when their diets are supplemented with the correct blend of omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids (2.5:1 to 1:1)

It makes good sense to have the correct combination of parent essential oils in your body as high as you possibly can for the best health in all respcts.

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…

Proof of EFA Deficiency

Todays food processing requires widespread use of preservatives, additives, and artificial chemicals. EFAs have a short shelf life since they spoil quickly. Food processors have to replace ingredients that spoil with stable long-lived alternatives. Everything in food mfg. revolves around increasing shelf-life and making the EFAs inactive. Virtually every processed product in the supermarket has a substantially, though artificially, increased shelf life. As a result, it is difficult to obtain enough UNPROCESSED EFAs through our diet.

For example, margarine was developed at the request of Napoleon as an inexpensive, long-lasting spread costing much less than butter. The chemical process of hydrogenation that creates transfats was patented in 1911. It was known in 1939 that the transfats caused by hydrogenation were associated with increased skin cancer contraction rates. Margarine can be left out for a year with no refrigeration and it won’t spoil. Compare that result to any “real food”. No food can last longer than a few days without spoiling unless there are cancer-causing additives in the food. This means that the oxygen transfer is ruined. Thousands of products now contain these harmful oils and preservatives – from cakes and cookies and bread, to frozen pizza.

While it is possible to get enough natural EFAs from modern food, it has become extremely difficult.

Phytates are Mineral Magnets, or “Was Popeye a Propaganda Tool?”

February 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Iron and other minerals required for cellular respiration aren’t usable by humans if they are ingested in plant or vegetable foods, because plants contain phytates. Phytates biochemically lock up the minerals with the plant fiber, rendering them unusable. This makes minerals, as well as the fiber, UNUSABLE BY HUMAN cells. That’s why it was shown, and reported in the “Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2000,71:446-471,” that WOMEN EATING THE MOST FIBER AND THE LOWEST AMOUNT OF FAT HAD 20% LOWER CALCIUM RETENTION.

Eating meat did NOTHING to increase colon cancer risk. Yet this shocking result hasn’t been reported in the popular press. “Fiber fiction” has run rampant in America for many years.

An exceptional article was written for the general public in 1997 by “Albion Research Notes – A Compilation of Vital Research Updates on Human Nutrition”, Albion Laboratories, Clearfield, UT (Vo.. 6, No. 2, June 1997). Here is what it said:

“Natural sources of fiber, such as cereals and fruits, generally have a DEPRESSING EFFECT on absorption of minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, and copper.” Imagine taking mineral supplements and still going into a negative balance for the very minerals that are being supplemented! Too few of us saw this important paper.

Minerals can’t be separated from the fiber in human digestion so, because you aren’t a cow with four stomachs designed to accomplish that difficult task, you can’t make effective use of the minerals in plants. “Consumer Reports on Health” reported on this – in fact, the magazine actually published the statement that eating spinach was worthless for obtaining necessary iron. It’s “in there” but not usable for a human being.

We keep getting misled with what sounds good, but isn’t based on science.

Phytates TAKE OUT MINERALS (the respiratory co-enzymes Dr. Warburg speaks of) – JUST THE OPPOSITE of what we desire and require to avoid contracting cancer.

Think of fiber as bad “mineral magnets”, removing the precious minerals from your body and inhibiting oxygen transfer through the blood, whereas EFAs are the good “oxygen magnets”, helping bring an abundance of needed oxygen into your cells.

So… was Popeye created by the farming lobbyists wanting to brain wash us into believing that spinach would give us energy?

WARNING: Fish Oil Increases Platelet Aggregation!

February 24, 2010 Leave a comment

So many people are still confused by the belief that fish oil is good for you. It isn’t!

And just to remind you once again, I thought I would share with you this quote from researchers published in The New England Journal of Medicine (all the way back in 1986):

“…In patients with atherosclerosis, prostacyclin biosynthesis…fell [decreased] by a mean [average] of 42 percent during the fish-oil period.”

What does this mean in real-world English? Hang onto your hats, here comes a doozy…

Life-Systems Engineering Science analysis: For those of you who have read my books, you may recall prostacyclin (PGI2) is the body’s natural blood thinner and keeps platelets apart naturally. The last thing a heart disease patients needs or wants is a reduction in this critical substance. CVD (cardiovascular disease) patients require MORE, NOT less PGI2 as decrease will significantly increase their risk of heart attack.

You can learn more about this by picking up a copy of “The 24-Hour Diet” or “The Hidden Story of Cancer” at www.brianpeskin.com.

Reference: Knapp, H, et al., “In vivo indexes of platelet and vascular function during fish-oil administration in patients with atherosclerosis,” The New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 314, April 10, 1986, No. 15, pages 937-942.

Carbohydrate Overload

February 23, 2010 Leave a comment

How many carbohydrates do we need each day?

The answer is (drumroll please…)

NONE.

ZERO.

Thats right: NOTHING.

Let me repeat that:

We NEED ABSOLUTELY NO CARBOHYDRATES IN OUR DIET.

The book “Nutrition for fitness and sport” by Melvin H. Williams answers this. From what the nutritional experts, the government, and physicians have told us for decades, we would expect the answer to be “lots of carbohydrates”, but it isn’t. In fact, the answer is shocking:

“The body can adapt to a carbohydrate-free diet and manufacture the glucose it needs from parts of protein and fat.”

Dr. Williams uses the word “adapt”, to a minimum carbohydrate diet. I maintain a minimum carbohydrate is your body’s NATURAL STATE and it’s unnatural state is carbohydrate overload. Everyone has it backwards.

How much carbohydrate is in you?

“Student Companion for Stryer’s Biochemistry” makes it clear: ONLY A MERE 1% OF TISSUE WEIGHT IS CARBOHYDRATE. Almost nothing!!

A high carbohydrate diet makes no scientific sense unless you want to fatten yourself up like cattle before the slaughter. Always remember, science relies on facts, not feelings. While it may sound good to have a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, it makes no scientific sense, given how our bodies operate.

2010 Newsflash: Saturated Fat Does NOT Cause Heart Disease!

February 15, 2010 Leave a comment

Real-Life Results: Saturated Fat is Healthy, NOT Harmful!

Background: “A reduction in dietary saturated fat has generally been thought to improve cardiovascular health.

Conclusions: A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD.”

Life-Systems Engineering Science Commentary: The truth, completely consistent with physiology and biochemistry, is once again published, if anyone cares to look.

Consuming saturated fat does not cause heart disease!

So enjoy that steak, and everything good that goes with it!!
