Ever wonder about the “superbugs”, the antibiotic resistant bacteria that are becoming so prevalent?


Nearly 80 percent of the American antibiotics market goes for use in livestock, often for healthy animals. Federal scientists published a report in February, 2013, that documents the results of this practice: let’s look at how many meat products have antibiotic resistant bacteria in them: 81% of ground turkey, 69% of pork chops, 55% of ground beef and 39% of chicken. What?

Eating these bacteria can make infections much harder to treat because they are resistant to many antibiotics.

Can we protect ourselves? Yes! Buy organic if you can, refrigerate and cook meats properly, learn what meat labels actually mean.

Are your silver fillings really silver? They may be harming your health!



“Silver fillings are not silver, but an amalgam of chemicals– 50% of which is mercury, a dangerous neurotoxin! Toxic mercury vapors are released into the mouth and absorbed by the body as people chew and drink liquids.

The FDA states that “Dental amalgams contain mercury, which may have neurotoxic effects on the nervous systems of developing children and fetus … Pregnant women and persons who may have a health condition that makes them more sensitive to mercury exposure..” (more here) should consider other options to fill cavities.

Martha Grout, MD, explains that “This should have been a no-brainer. We do not need mercury, one of the most lethal metals on earth, in our mouths.”

Iodine can be a life saver. What?


Martha Grout, MD, and Donald Miller, MD, explain “There is growing evidence that Americans would have better health and a lower incidence of cancer and fibrocystic disease of the breast if they consumed more iodine. A decrease in iodine intake coupled with an increased consumption of fluoride and bromide (in most flour), has created an epidemic of iodine deficiency in America.

So? People in the U.S. consume an average 240 micrograms (µg) of iodine a day. Japanese consume 50x more. US rate of breast cancer is the highest in the world– Japan one of the lowest. Life expectancy in US: 77.85 years. In Japan? 81.25 years in Japan, the highest of all industrialized countries.

So, what is the meaning of this?
