Marijuana is not a harmless drug.Though marijuana has many medicinal qualities and I recommend it for most of our cancer patients, too much marijuana smoking has major negative effects on the brain, causing cognitive decline, poor attention and memory, and decreased IQ. According to the American Psychological Association, toking the whacky weed at least once a week brings neurocognitive damage. This is especially harmful for young people seeing as the number high school kids smoking today has nearly tripled in the last twenty years. Young people becoming addicted to marijuana can suffer significant changes in their brain structure and lose an average of six IQ points by adulthood. There is also a correlation between frequent smoking of high potency THC marijuana and increasing trouble with depression, anxiety and psychosis. Just a little something to think about…http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Do you sunburn easily? Want a natural sunscreen alternative? Take some PABA. PABA is Para-AminoBenzioic Acid, what your body uses to pigment healthy skin for a natural defense against sunburn. Our SAD (Standard American Diet) diets make most people, including children, deficient in the amino acid PABA. If you sunburn easily and rely on the toxic sunscreen slathers, you may be low on PABA. PABA is a natural skin cancer deterrent and antioxidant that fights free radicals to protect against oxidative damage to cell structures. Why are we warned about PABA in lotions? Because suntan lotions and other skin products use the toxic, carcinogenic chemical version of PABA. PABA is also great for is stimulating the growth of blood cells, keeping glands and intestines working smoothly and for reversing baldness and gray hair. Going to the beach this summer? Load up with 2,000mg a day of PABA for one week before intense outdoor sun and then cut back to 500mg a day after that. PABA will help build your sun tolerance and is not an instant fool-proof sun shield so use your noggin and always come out of the sun before you toast your skin.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Coffee lovers beware! A pure cup of coffee is becoming harder to find and most people don’t even know what could be in their ground coffee. Unscrupulous coffee producers cut their coffee with different things to increase profits. Recent coffee harvests have been hurt by droughts and crop diseases, driving up prices and bringing surprise ingredients hiding in coffee because of this increasing coffee shortages. Some of the “fillers” range from bark to dirt, GMO corn and soybeans, glutenous barley and wheat, soybeans, rice, beans, acai seed, brown sugar and starch syrup. When non-coffee bean items are roasted and ground along with the coffee bean it becomes nearly impossible to tell that they are there without a science lab. Even worse, a recent study predicts that 70% percent of the world’s coffee supply could falter by 2080. This year Brazil’s coffee production has dropped by over 10%. I use whole organic beans and grind them myself.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Last year the shocking Séralini GMO study came out. You remember, the one where rats fed Monsanto GMO corn or fed Roundup herbicide in drinking water died earlier and had higher rates of tumors and organ damage than non-GMO fed rats? This study is under an all-out attack from the money-bags corporations who are losing bug bucks because of it. The study opponents are claiming that the experiment did not use enough rats and should therefore be shredded for- well, rat litter paper… The GMO study opponents also are trying to discredit the study by saying that the industry standard Sprague Dawley lab rats used in this study develop tumors anyhow if allowed to live long enough – ignoring the painfully obvious fact that non-GMO control groups of rats still had much less cancer, lived longer and generally fared in better health overall. The opponents say all this while mouthing about their crappy 90 day studies (which BTW were less thorough) to say “GMOs are safe”. The chief editor of the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology asked Séralini and his team to voluntarily retract the study - which they refused to do. Sounds like a case of Snot Stew to me but I’m siding with Séralini on this one and going GMO-free.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Did your mom take pain relievers during pregnancy?Another of many studies has been published in JAMA Pediatrics showing how acetaminophen taken during pregnancy multiplies the risk of ADHD by up to 40%. Acetaminophen is found to cross the placental barrier to adversly affect fetal brain development by jacking maternal hormones and by causing fetal neurotoxicity. This study was actually gentle on Tylenol and other acetaminophen products as a study published last year showed that women taking acetaminophen during pregnancy increased the risk of their children having serious behavior problems by a whopping 70%. Manufacturers cry “no way Jose” to point the blame at flu for causing child brain development problems. Flu has been around for centuries and acetaminophen hasn’t. ADHD was unheard of until recently and rates are skyrocketing while in the same basic time period Tylenol sales are flourishing. The only way Tylenol is a miracle drug is because the FDA (Fostering Drug Addicts) hasn’t  risen to protect the masses and banned it yet.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Doctors tell you that babies take 40 weeks from conception to be born. This commonly accepted fact became a “fact” when a German obstetrician named Naegele declared it so back in the 1800’s. He said “that a pregnancy should last 10 lunar months which comes to 40 weeks in total”. Well, his math is off because this actually equates to 29.53 solar days per month - 295 regular days - 42.1 weeks and about 9.9 months. A 1990 study shows that the average length of a human pregnancy is closer to 41weeks. This means some women delivered their babies under 41 weeks and some went over 41 weeks. Taking into consideration that up to 40% of hospital deliveries are induced labor births (which BTW adds an additional 67% risk of c-section delivery), there are still only about 5% of babies born on their actual 40 week “due date”. 1.8% of babies go past 42 weeks of gestation and ‘overcooked’ babies past the 41-42 week mark often have dry, reddened and peeling skin and their fingernails can be dry and flaking. http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Do you need iodine?Every cell in the body uses iodine to function. Thyroid hormones are assembled using iodine plus the amino acid tyrosine. Thyroid hormones set metabolic rates in the body and are needed for cellular activities - including cell division. Iodine, fluoride, chlorine and bromine are called halogens and share the same “key slot” pathway that iodine uses to enter the cell. But fluoride, chlorine and bromine get stuck and block this key slot entry point to prevent iodine from entering the cell, causing cellular dysfunction. This is why you can test for plenty of thyroid hormones in the blood but still have all the symptoms of a thyroid deficiency. Excess fluoride and chlorine come mainly from our water treatment systems and dentifrices. Bromine is found in baked goods and breads. The more you take in fluoride, chlorine and bromine, the more these plug up your cellular pathways and the more hypothyroid you become. Taking supplemental iodine/iodide will cause osmotic pressure to push the fluoride, chlorine and bromine out of the cell key slots so iodine can once again do its job. If you take too much iodine/iodide to fast then the body has to deal with the extra fluoride, chlorine and bromine that is displaced all at once leading to the false conclusion that you are “allergic” to iodine. 16mg of iodide a day will maintain health but a lot more will be needed to recover lost health. Painting tummies, breasts or parts of limbs with staining iodine (like Povidine iodine) is another great way to boost iodine levels. Iodine stains should last 24hrs if you have optimal levels in your body.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

A very recent food nutrition study in the British Journal of Nutrition shows that organic foods not only pack more flavor but they also have more antioxidants and less pesticide residues than non-organic food. Organic crops can carry up to 69% more health-giving antioxidant compounds than conventionally grown crops. Eating organic fruits and vegetables instead of conventionally grown ones can bring the nutritional equivalent of about two extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day - without having to eat more food to get it. We are hungry all the time and eating so much because we are literally starving to death for nutrients. This study also showed that health-damaging pesticide residues are up to 100-fold lower in organic food compared to conventionally grown food. Conventionally grown food also has twice as much toxic heavy metal contaminants as organic food.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Cancer in your money and receipts:Plasticizing chemicals found in everyday food storage containers, food can liners, bags and even on store receipts and paper money causes breast cancer cells to grow faster. Duke University found that this exposure also diminishes chemotherapy efficacy. Plasticizers can actually render common breast cancer cells completely treatment resistant – regardless of whether the cancer is estrogen receptor positive or negative. People avoiding all plastics for a month or more still had small levels of plasticizing chemicals in their urine from contact within 48 hours because this stuff is so ubiquitous in the environment today. Interestingly, plasticizers are also common in the very IV bags and tubing used to deliver chemotherapy drugs that are supposed to “fight” cancer. Does anyone else see the conundrum here? We switched to glass containers in our home while avoiding canned goods and other plasticizers sources like the plague. Should you?http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/
