The Value of WATER
 
#1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
(Likely applies to half the world population)
 
 
#2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak
that it is mistaken for hunger.
 
 
#3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as 3%.
 
 
#4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs
for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of
Washington study.
 
 
#5. Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
 
 
#6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of
water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain
for up to 80% of sufferers.—( would make sure it is clean water –distilled or RO with Sea Salt added to it)
 
 
#7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term
memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on
the computer screen or on a printed page.
 
 
#8.. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of
colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast
cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop
bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water
you should drink every day?
 
 
COKE has it’s Uses
 
#1. In many states the highway patrol carries
two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from
the highway after a car accident.
 
 
#2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke
and it will be gone in two days.
 
#3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the
toilet bowl and let the ‘real thing’ sit for one hour,
then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes
stains from vitreous china.
 
 
#4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds
Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
 
 
#5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour
a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble
away the corrosion.
 
 
#6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola
to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
 
 
#7. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke
into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen
grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your
windshield.
 
 
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
 
#1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.
It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric
acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major
contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.
 
#2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate), the
commercial trucks must use a “Hazardous Material” placards
reserved for highly corrosive materials.
 
#3. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean
engines of the trucks for about 20 years!

Food Chemical Regulations Rely Heavily On Industry Self-Policing and Lack Transparency
 
ScienceDaily (Oct. 26, 2011) — Safety decisions concerning one-third of the more than 10,000 substances that may be added to human food were made by food manufacturers and a trade association without review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), according to an analysis spearheaded by the Pew Health Group.–The report, published in the peer-reviewed journal Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety, illustrates potential problems with the U.S. food additive regulatory program.—“Congress established our food additive regulatory program more than 50 years ago, and it does not stand up well to scrutiny based on today’s standards of science and public transparency,” said Tom Neltner, Food Additives Project director in the Pew Health Group.–The research also found that the FDA developed an expedited process in the mid-1990’s that essentially eliminated the opportunity for public involvement in decision making prior to FDA’s safety determination. This shift doubled the rate of industry requests for FDA review. In contrast, standard operating procedure for other federal regulatory decisions regarding drug, workplace, and environmental safety requires public notice and an opportunity to comment.—“While the shift to a new regulatory process-one in which companies make safety decisions and ask FDA to confirm them-has sped up agency review, it has also bypassed the public,” Neltner said. “Subjecting safety decisions to comment from competitors, academic scientists, public interest groups, and the general public can result in stronger protections for consumers. In an age of growing demand for government transparency, there is virtually no meaningful opportunity for participation in decisions about large classes of substances added to the food supply.”–When Congress passed the Food Additives Amendment of 1958, it created a structure that has limited the FDA’s ability to effectively regulate substances added to food because the law–Allows manufacturers to determine that the use of an additive is “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS), and then use that substance without notifying the FDA[U1]. As a result, the agency is unaware of many substances that may be added to food and lacks the ability to ensure that safety decisions were properly made. Does not require that manufacturers inform the FDA when health reports suggest new hazards associated with additives already used in food. Therefore, the agency has no access to unpublished reports and must expend limited resources sifting through published information to identify potential problems and set priorities.[U2]
In addition to the article examining the state of the food additive regulation, a piece in the same publication summarizes a workshop, co-sponsored by the Institute of Food Technologists and the journal Nature, examined how FDA evaluates the potential hazards posed by substances added to food. The two-day session, held in April 2011, brought together science and food policy experts from government, industry, academia, and public interest organizations. Issues discussed at the workshop and presented in the journal article include-The need for clear procedures to develop validated toxicological tests and regularly revise guidance documents to reflect advances in science-Opportunities to improve academic research to make it more usable for regulatory decision making and enhance coordination between federal agencies; and-Challenges to reassessing a chemical’s safety after it is on the market.Both journal articles appear in the November issue of Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety. They are the first in a series of the Pew Health Group’s assessments of the scientific evidence and FDA’s regulatory system, evaluating whether the agency ensures chemicals added to food are safe as required by law. Future articles will consider other aspects of the scientific analysis and the law, and will provide case studies of issues raised about the FDA’s food additives program. The Pew Health Group will develop policy recommendations to reduce unnecessary and hidden risks that are informed by their evaluation.–Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Pew Charitable Trusts.

Tumors Use Sugars To Avoid Programmed Cell Death
 
ScienceDaily (Apr. 15, 2008) — Researchers at the Duke School of Medicine apparently have solved the riddle of why cancer cells like sugar so much, and it may be a mechanism that could lead to better cancer treatments.—Jonathan Coloff, a graduate student in Assistant Professor Jeffrey Rathmell’s laboratory in the Duke Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology, has found that the tumor cells use glucose sugar as a way to avoid programmed cell death. They make use of a protein called Akt, which promotes glucose metabolism, which in turn regulates a family of proteins critical for cell survival, the researchers shared during an April 15 presentation at the American Association of Cancer Research Annual Meeting in San Diego.—In normal cells, growth factors regulate metabolism and cell survival. Removing these factors leads to loss of glucose uptake and metabolism and cell death. Cancer cells, however, maintain glucose metabolism and resist cell death, even when deprived of growth factors.–To study how Akt might affect these processes, Coloff and colleagues introduced a cancer-causing form of Akt called myrAkt, into cells that depend on growth factor to survive. The mutant form of Akt allowed cells to maintain glucose usage and survive even when no growth factors were present, allowing them to bypass a normal safeguard used by cells to prevent cancer development.—The death of normal cells after growth factors are removed is partly accomplished by two proteins called Mcl-1 and Puma. But the cancer-causing version of Akt prevents these two proteins from accomplishing their tasks, allowing the cell to survive when it shouldn’t.—Once glucose was withdrawn from the environment, however, Akt was no longer able to maintain regulation of the key targeted proteins Mcl-1 and Puma, and the cells died.[U3] “Akt’s dependence on glucose to provide an anti-cell-death signal could be a sign of metabolic addiction to glucose in cancer cells, and could give us a new avenue for a metabolic treatment of cancer,” said Dr. Rathmell.—Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Duke University Medical Center.

WI-FI on steroids
 
I just got off the phone from Shaw Head office in Calgary. They are in the process of rolling out wi-fi on steroids right through Vancouver and all large urban areas – a fully meshed wireless system from parks to undergrounds – absolutely everything wi-fried – this is without any regulations, no public consultation, behind closed doors deals with businesses and local government (yes, Shaw pays for placing wi-fi routers on street lights, and in buildings). —I am told there has been no public dissension – probably because nobody knows. I thought it would be from cell towers – but no, massive routers EVERYWHERE – they are very proud. Using two frequencies – 2.45 GhZ and 5 GhZ – “Pushing the boundaries of Cisco”…… One notable study funded by US Air Force (Chou et al), found almost 4 times rates of primary cancers for rats exposed to Wi-Fi 2.45 GhZ for less than two years, and a doubling of secondary cancers. We know brain function of young people affected by Wi-Fi, we know blood brain barriers will be leaking within minutes, DNA damage, sperm and ovum damage – combine this meshed network with Smart Grid meshed network, plus cell towers exploding everywhere – sorry people – life is over as you know it. There will be NO SAFE PLACE FOR ANY LIVING THING. —I can’t do more than I am doing –it needs to go to a larger audience and group of activists demanding health protection, environment protection, democratic rights. SHAW employees I spoke to had never heard of WHO regulations and knew nothing about radiofrequency electromagnetic fields being possible to cause human cancer, nor that Health Canada has advised reduced exposure for youth (very weak advisory, but there nonetheless). The plan is to do this in every urban centre across the province, and then Canada, starting with Vancouver – as far as I can establish – and also Victoria. Take Action Now to get this information out to people and demand a stop for public hearings, full disclosure, full signage where these routers are going to be placed – If I unwittingly was waiting for a bus stop and stood underneath one of those for 5 minutes, it would just about kill me. And that’s where they will be no doubt. —Here’s a phone number and name for you at Shaw to contact and demand public consultation, stop it until full transparency – this is public spaces, without public input – – Chad Rumpel – 403-303-4822 – he is the one in charge of Wi-Fi (so I am told). Calgary number. — Speak up immediately – to everyone, especially to your local government – Andrea Reimer just won the GREEN AWARD for Vancouver – she needs to hear from you NOW before this monstrous disaster is unfurled – also Mayor and other council members

Papaya Extract Thwarts Growth of Cancer Cells in Lab Tests
Papaya. The humble papaya is gaining credibility in Western medicine for anticancer powers that folk cultures have recognized for generations
ScienceDaily (Mar. 10, 2010) — The humble papaya is gaining credibility in Western medicine for anticancer powers that folk cultures have recognized for generations.–University of Florida researcher Nam Dang, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues in Japan have documented papaya’s dramatic anticancer effect against a broad range of lab-grown tumors, including cancers of the cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreas. The researchers used an extract made from dried papaya leaves, and the anticancer effects were stronger when cells received larger doses of the tea[U5]. In a paper published in the Feb. 17 issue of the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, Dang and his colleagues also documented for the first time that papaya leaf extract boosts the production of key signaling molecules called Th1-type cytokines. This regulation of the immune system, in addition to papaya’s direct antitumor effect on various cancers, suggests possible therapeutic strategies that use the immune system to fight cancers. The papaya extract did not have any toxic effects on normal cells, avoiding a common and devastating consequence of many cancer therapy regimens. The success of the papaya extract in acting on cancer without toxicity is consistent with reports from indigenous populations in Australia and his native Vietnam, said Dang, a professor of medicine and medical director of the UF Shands Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office.–“Based on what I have seen and heard in a clinical setting, nobody who takes this extract experiences demonstrable toxicity; it seems like you could take it for a long time — as long as it is effective,” he said.–Researchers exposed 10 different types of cancer cell cultures to four strengths of papaya leaf extract and measured the effect after 24 hours. Papaya slowed the growth of tumors in all the cultures.–To identify the mechanism by which papaya checked the growth of the cultures, the team focused on a cell line for T lymphoma. Their results suggested that at least one of the mechanisms employed by the papaya extract is inducing cell death.–In a similar analysis, the team also looked at the effect of papaya extract on the production of antitumor molecules known as cytokines. Papaya was shown to promote the production of Th1-type cytokines, important in the regulation of the immune system. For that reason, the study findings raise the possibility of future use of papaya extract components in immune-related conditions such as inflammation, autoimmune disease and some cancers.–Bharat B. Aggarwal, Ph.D., a researcher at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, already is so convinced of papaya’s restorative powers that he has a serving of the fruit every day.–“We have always known that papaya has a lot of interesting things in there,” said Aggarwal, a professor in the center’s department of experimental therapeutics who was not involved in the UF research. Foremost among papaya’s health-promoting agents is papain, papaya’s signature enzyme, which is found in both the fruit and the leaves.–“This paper has not gone too much into identifying the components responsible for the activity, which is just fine. I think that is a good beginning,” Aggarwal said. Aggarwal also noted that papaya extract’s success in reducing cancer in laboratory cell cultures must next be replicated in animal and human studies. “I hope Dr. Dang takes it further, because I think we need enthusiastic people like him to move it forward,” Aggarwal said. Dang and a colleague have applied to patent the process to distill the papaya extract through the University of Tokyo; the next step in the research is to identify the specific compounds in the papaya extract active against the cancer cell lines. For this stage, Dang has partnered with Hendrik Luesch, Ph.D., a fellow UF Shands Cancer Center member and a professor of medicinal chemistry. Luesch is an expert in the identification and synthesis of natural products for medicinal purposes, and recently discovered a coral reef compound that inhibits cancer cell growth in cell lines.–Story Source: Adapted from materials provided by University of Florida.

PAYING FOR THE REPLACEMENT
Gerhard Sauer and his wife got the fright of their lives when their smart meter exploded on Monday night at their Pickering home.–“We were downstairs watching television and the hall light was on. All of a sudden it was like thunder. There was this big bang and the light went dim but didn’t go completely out. Then there was a second bang and the light went dim, but after that the light went back on,” Sauer said. –“I went to the fuse box to investigate because that is where the sound came from. Every thing looked fine but it smelt like burnt wire so we weren’t going to bed. Something was wrong and we didn’t want the house to burn down.”—Sauer tried to get hold of the hydro company but because it was after 11 p.m. the attempts were in vain and he called 911.—“It was useless to continue trying so I called 911 and it was the right thing to do. The lady called the fire department and they came to the site and saw the burnt black box and said to make sure no one touches it because they could get electrocuted,” Sauer said.[U1] “The fire department called hydro and they came and said they could fix it at my expense. The said there was nothing wrong with the meter but it was my wiring. If it was my wiring the light wouldn’t be on. I don’t have an estimate for what it is going to cost.”[U2]—It is unclear what caused the explosion.[U3]-“I’m not an electrician by trade. It is just one of those things that happen,” said Matthew Seward, a fire inspector with the City of Pickering.
The communications department at the Ministry of Energy did not provide an explanation.

Q: Does replacement of a SmartMeter with an analog meter constitute tampering?
 
A: “The replacement of a SmartMeter with an analog meter should not constitute illegal tampering unless it is done with the intent to prevent the device from accurately measuring electrical use. Although the disconnection of the SmartMeter prevents it from recording electrical use, if such disconnection is not done with the intent to get lower electrical rates and a working analog meter that accurately records electrical use replaces the SmartMeter , the resident should be clear of any charges of tampering. “

Fetuses AS Foods
 
The following is the text of an article which originally appeared in the Hong Kong Eastern Express on April 12, 1995. For more information, contact Bruce Gilley at The Eastern Express in Hong Kong, telephone 011-852-27071111, or fax 011-852-27071122.

Rumors that dead embryos were being used as dietary supplements started to spread early last year with reports that some doctors in Shenzhen hospitals were eating dead fetuses after carrying out abortions. The doctors allegedly defended their actions by saying the embryos were good for their skin and general health.–A trend was set and soon reports circulated that doctors in the city were promoting fetuses as a human tonic. Hospital cleaning women were seen fighting each other to take the treasured human remains home. Last month, reporters from EastWeek – a sister publication of Eastern Express – went to Shenzhen to see if the rumors could be substantiated. On March 7, a reporter entered the state-run Shenzhen Heath Center for Women and Children feigning illness and asked a female doctor for a fetus. The doctor said the department was out of stock but to come again. –The next day the reporter returned at lunch time. The doctor eventually emerged from the operating theatre holding a fist size glass bottle stuffed with thumbsized fetuses. –She said: “There are 10 fetuses here, all aborted this morning. You can take them. We are a state hospital and don’t charge anything. –“Normally, we doctors take them home to eat – all free. Since you don’t look well, you can take them.” –Not every state hospital is as generous with its dead embryos as the Health Center for Women and Children. At the Shenzhen People’s Hospital, for example, the reporter was in for a surprise.
When a Ms. Yang, the head nurse, was asked for fetuses, she looked anxious and asked other staff to leave. After closing the door, she asked the undercover buyer in a low voice: “Where did you (get to) know that we sell fetuses?” —
The reporter answered: “A doctor friend in Hong Kong told me.” –“Who? What is his/her name?” — The reporter was not prepared for this line of questioning and could not come up with a name. Yang told him that fetuses were only for sale within the hospital, and were not for public purchase. She added that some staff would, however, sell the fetuses on to Hong Kong buyers.
The reporter learned that the going rate for a fetus was $10 but when the merchandise was in short supply, the price could go up to $20. But these prices are pin money compared to those set by private clinics, which are said to make a fortune selling fetuses. One chap on Bong Men Lao Street charges $300 for one fetus. The person in charge of the clinic is a man in his 60’s. When he saw the ailing reporter, he offered to take an order for fetuses that had reached full-term and which, it is claimed, contain the best healing properties. When a female doctor named Yang – no relation – of Sin Hua clinic was asked whether fetuses were edible, she said emphatically: “Of course they are. They are even better than placentas. —”
 
A Mr. Cheng from Hong Kong claims he has been eating fetus soup for more than six months. To begin, the man, in his 40’s, would make the trip to Shenzhen frequently for business and was introduced to fetuses by friends. He says he met a number of professors and doctors in government hospitals who helped him buy the fetuses. “At first, I felt uncomfortable, but doctors said the substances in fetuses could help cure my asthma. I started taking them and gradually, the asthma disappeared,” Cheng said. –Now, Cheng only eats fetuses occasionally to top up his treatment, but there was a time when he made regular cross border trips with the gruesome merchandise. “Everytime , I carried a Thermos flask to Shenzhen and brought the fetuses back to Hong Kong to make soup. If they gave me 20 or 30 at a time, I put them in the refrigerator. I didn’t have the soup every day – it depended on the supply. —“Usually, I washed the fetuses clean, and added ginger, orange peel and pork to make soup. After taking it for a while, I felt a lot better and my asthma disappeared. I used to take placenta, but it was not so helpful.” When asked if he was concerned about the fetuses containing diseases, Cheng was dismissive. “I bought them from government hospitals. They would check the pregnant women before doing the operations and only sell them to me if there was no problem. Also, I always boil them over high heat which kills any bacteria.” Although Cheng has overcome any squeamishness over eating fetus soup, he says he draw the line at consuming whole dead embryos. He also refrains from telling people of his grisly dietary habits. —Zou Qin, 32, a woman from Hubei with the fine skin of a someone several years younger, attributes her well preserved looks to a diet of fetuses. As a doctor at the Lun Hu Clinic, Zou has carried out abortions on several hundred patients. She believes fetuses are highly nutritious and claims to have eaten more than 100 in the past six months. She pulls out a fetus specimen before a reporter and explains the selection criteria. “People normally prefer (fetuses of) young women, and even better, the first baby and a male.” She adds: “They are wasted if we don’t eat them. The women who receive abortions here don’t want the fetuses. Also, the fetuses are already dead [when we eat them]. We don’t carry out abortions just to eat the fetuses. [U1]
 
“Before, my sister’s children were very weak. I heard that fetuses were good for your health and started taking some to my nephews,” Zou says, without remorse. “I wash them with clear water until they look transparent white and then stew them. Making soup is best.” But she admits there are drawbacks to this dubious delicacy. “Fetuses are very smelly and not everybody can take the stink,” she said. “You can also make meat cakes by mixing fetuses with minced meat but you have to add more ginger and chives to get rid of the smell.” [U2]
 
Hong Kong legislator Dr. Tan Siu-tong is surprised that it could be within anyone’s capability to overcome the stench of a dead fetus, even if their stomachs are lined with lead. “When all the placental tissue is dead, the smell is awful and is enough to make you feel sick. It is like having a dead mouse in the house,” he said. –Doctors in the territory have responded with disgust and incredulity to stories of people supplementing their diets with fetuses. Many have read articles of fetal cannibalism but none has been able to verify the reports. They are treating the issue with skepticism. Dr. Margaret Kwan, a gynecologist who until two weeks ago held the post of chief executive at the FPA, says: “This is the strangest thing I have ever heard coming out of China. I just hope it is not true.”
Dr. Warren Lee, president of the Hong Kong Nutrition Association, is aware of the unsavory rumors. “Eating fetuses is a kind of traditional Chinese medicine and is deeply founded in Chinese folklore. In terms of nutrition, a fetus would be a good source of protein and fats, and there are minerals in bone. But I don’t know if eating fetuses is just folklore or more than that,” he says. According to Lee, it is conceivable that fetuses are rich in certain hormones that are beneficial to the adult human body, but should this be the case, the fetal matter would have to be converted into an indictable form for best results, as most hormones including the hormone for diabetes, insulin – are broken down in the digestive system before they have a chance to be absorbed by the body. –But Tang fails to understand how anyone anywhere can convince themselves “that they are just eating an organism when they are actually eating a dead body”. “It may not be a formed human being, but when they think about it most people would think: ‘Ugh! No, I can’t eat that.’ I don’t think civilized people with an education could do that sort of thing.” [U3]—-Dr. Wong, a Hong Kong doctor who practices Western medicine, thinks only the ignorant would eat human fetuses. He explains that fetuses contain mucoploysaccharide, which is beneficial to the metabolism, but states that it can be found in a lot of other food – Chinese doctor Chu Ho-Ting agrees that there is no place for fetuses in medicine, and suggests that it might even be unhealthy if the pregnant woman was infected by disease. —“Most bacteria can be killed under 100 degree heat but some require 400 degrees. Some people believe eating fetuses can strengthen the immunity of the human body against diseases, but this is wrong[U4]. Although fetuses contain protein, they are not as nutritious as placenta, which contains different kinds of nutrients. But even placenta has to be taken with other Chinese herbs.”

Do Aborted Babies Enhance the Flavor of the Food You Eat?
Biotech Company Uses Fetal Stem Cells to Test Food
Food companies are turning to biotechnology to test new chemicals to make food taste better. –One company, Semonyx, is testing their food ingredients using cells derived from aborted fetuses. -Pepsico, Kraft, and Nestlé are the biggest food brands using this company.– Do you owe the taste of your food to aborted babies? While the question sounds ridiculous, the fact is that you might. Some companies are using stem cell lines derived from an aborted fetus to test flavor enhancers for the food that you eat every day. Although they are not actually putting aborted fetal cells into your food, they are using these cells in the laboratory to develop chemicals to make your food taste better. Some of the brands that are using this kind of testing include Pepsico, Kraft, and Nestlé. Although there are plenty of people that don’t have an ethical problem with using stem cell lines to help cure disease, do we really want them to be used to develop our food? Perhaps this is another reason to eat minimally processed food.–Biotech Companies Using Stem Cells Popular food companies are working with a biotech company called Senomyx to test their foods. The goal of the testing is to find food additives to reduce the amount of MSG, salt, and sugar used in the foods that they produce. Semonyx receives money to do the research, along with royalties when foods using their ingredients are sold [U5]. The fetal stem cell line, taken from the kidney of an electively aborted baby, is used to test the biochemical reaction when exposed to the food ingredients. Although they could have used cells derived from other forms of life, they chose to use the fetal stem cells.

Currently, the companies that have decided to partner with Semonyx include Nestlé, Pepsico, Kraft (which included Cadbury Chocolate), and Solae. [U6]Campbell’s Soup did have a partnership with this company, but they chose to break their relationships with the biotech company shortly after the pro-life group Children of God for Life sent out a press release about their involvement.
 
Eating Real Food
If the idea of eating foods using ingredients that were developed using fetal stem cell lines leaves a bad taste in your mouth, you can avoid buying products from the companies that are working with Semonyx. Unfortunately, this includes some of the biggest brands in the food industry. This also doesn’t guarantee that other companies won’t start working with Semonyx in the future in order to develop their own food ingredients. The best way to guarantee that you won’t be eating food with these products is to eat real food using natural ingredients[U7]. There’s no telling whether the ingredients that Semonyx develops won’t be worse than the MSG, salt, and sugar that they are trying to replace. With real food, especially if they are taken from an organic source, you can guarantee that you’re eating food obtained without the help of cells derived from an aborted baby.

California Recall … Beginning of the End for Smart Meters?
The Daily Bell
PG&E BEGINS REMOVING ‘SMART’ METERS DUE TO HEALTH EFFECTS … Widening Call for Immediate Return of Analogs; Disconnection of “Mesh” Wireless Network. SANTA CRUZ, CA – Just as PG&E enters the final phase of its deployment of wireless “smart” meters in California, the largest of the state’s Investor Owned Utilities (IOU’s) has reversed course, quietly beginning to replace the ‘smart’ meters of those reporting health impacts with the old trusty analog version. Consumer rights and health groups immediately seized on the news, demanding that millions of Californians unhappy with their new wireless meters get their analogs returned immediately at no cost. ‘Smart’ meters are new wireless utility meters being installed as part of the “smart” grid initiative, spearheaded by technology firms and backed by the Obama administration and the Department of Energy. Promises ranging from lower utility bills to enhanced renewable generation capacity have failed to materialize, with widespread reports of higher bills, privacy violations, fires and explosions, and commonly reported health impacts such as headaches, nausea, tinnitus, and heart problems associated with powerful wireless transmissions.
~ Press release from StopSmartMeters.org
Dominant Social Theme: Smart meters are very helpful for a green planet. So what’s the fuss?
Free-Market Analysis: When we first wrote about these evil “Smart Meters” well over a year ago, they weren’t receiving much attention. But we saw them as part of a broader plan of the Anglosphere power elite to continue their quest for control over every part of people’s lives. We figured the deployment of Smart Meters would go forward for several years without much resistance but we were wrong.—The Smart Meter craze has been positioned as a subdominant social theme by the elites: There are too many people, not enough power and we need to control every aspect of our energy existence and use. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. You can see some of our articles here: “Smart Grid: Edge of the Authoritarian Wedge” and “Technocracy”.—The world is swimming in energy – and oil, as a matter of fact. We’ve reported on the statement of one of the Forbes brothers of magazine fame that the US has enough oil domestically for centuries of use, but that discoveries and exploitation have been artificially reduced by “environmental” regulations and federal land ownership. The US fedgov owns about one-third of America’s lower 48, mostly in the Midwest.
But far sooner than we figured, it seems the Smart Meter backlash has arrived. Turns out that people don’t like the considerable hikes in their bills once Smart Meters are installed. Nor do they enjoy the health ramifications that are apparently involved, either. Thus we were both surprised and gratified to receive this press release from StopSmartMeters.org, detailing considerable pushback to the deployment of Smart Meters in California. Here’s more from the release:
Widely disparate political groups- from members of the Green Party to the Tea Party and Occupy protesters have attacked the program, and dozens of grassroots organizations have sprouted up over the past several months to fight what they call an undemocratic, unconstitutional and dangerous assault on people in their own homes and neighborhoods. Dozens of people have been detained or arrested for peaceful civil disobedience and even simply speaking out against deployments. In California, more than 47 cities and counties have demanded a halt to installation, and a dozen local governments have passed laws prohibiting the controversial technology. The ‘smart’ meter issue has further angered a public already seething at the utilities over repeated gas explosions, safety breaches at nuclear reactors, and an increasingly extortionate rate structure. –Word of California’s ‘smart’ meter nightmare has spread across the country and around the world, prompting some utilities to place smart meter plans on hold, and recently Nevada’s PUC to call for investigations into the health effects and other smart meter problems. Now in a dramatic turnaround that could signal the beginning of a widespread recall of wireless ‘smart’ meters, on October 28th PG&E re-installed a classic spinning disc analog meter on the home of Santa Cruz, CA resident Caitlin Phillips, who had been suffering headaches and other symptoms from her ‘smart’ meter. The move comes in response to verbal directives from the California Public Utilities Commission President Michael Peevey, who recently told members of the public that the utility “will provide for you to go back to the analog meter if that’s your choice.” The CPUC has been slow to respond to thousands of ordinary citizens reporting health effects from the new meters.–When a Wellington Energy installer (contracted with PG&E) came to install a smart meter at her home, Caitlin asked the installer to get off her property and not install, because of what a neighbor had told her about possible health damage and privacy violations. “When I returned home later, I discovered a smart meter on my house. That night I awoke to severe anxiety, headache, and buzzing in my teeth, and realized the new smart meter was on the other side of the wall from my bed.”
 
Caitlin reported her experience to PG&E and the CPUC, who both declined to rectify the situation. When the symptoms persisted, Caitlin sought the assistance of the Scotts Valley based group Stop Smart Meters! who provided an analog meter and referred her to a professional who could help her remove her ‘smart’ meter. As soon as the analog was installed, Caitlin’s symptoms disappeared.
 
Frustrated and outraged about her treatment by the utility and the PUC, Caitlin travelled to San Francisco to speak at a commission meeting on Oct. 20th. About a week later, PG&E crews were at her house replacing her temporary analog meter with a brand new official PG&E analog meter. This is believed to be the first time PG&E have willingly replaced an analog meter on the home of someone suffering from health effects.
An “opt-out” proceeding overseen by an Administrative Law Judge is underway at the CA Public Utilities Commission, yet those suffering (in some cases severe) health impacts have been stuck in limbo as utilities refuse to remove the harmful meters upon request- until now.
“There are hundreds of thousands- if not millions- of people suffering in their homes from forced ‘smart’ meter radiation,” said Joshua Hart, Director of the grassroots organization Stop Smart Meters! “The utilities and PUC’s must respond promptly to all requests that analogs be returned. The alternative is that people will increasingly turn to independent professionals to remove unwanted ‘smart’ meters from their homes, a reasonable action we assert is within our legal rights. Protecting your family’s health is not tampering.” PG&E and other utilities have also been responding to health complaints by replacing wireless ‘smart’ meters with digital meters that are “wireless-ready.” These digital meters have been associated with health problems from “dirty electricity” frequencies that pass into a home via the electrical wiring. These “trojan horse” meters have been roundly rejected by those who report continuing health impacts after installation. Susan Brinchman, Director of San Diego based Center for Electrosmog Prevention. said “At this point, the burden of responsibility is on the utilities to demonstrate that any new meter they want to install on our homes is safe. Communities have the right to retain analog meters at no extra charge.
 
Smart Meters are an outgrowth of M. King Hubbert and the so-called Technocracy movement that was prominent in the mid-20th century. Hubbert is, of course, also the inventor of the concept of “Peak Oil” – the idea that oil production will at some point peak and then gradually begin to subside.
 
Is it any coincidence that Hubbert, a believer in the Platonic idea of the rule by a few wise men over the many, also invented the ridiculous notion of Peak Oil? It is evident and obvious to anyone who bothers to give even a few minutes of study to the issue that the Anglosphere power elite has been plotting this gambit for nearly a century now.
 
Peak Oil was supposed to be the problem. Smart Meters were supposed to be the solution. The idea was to figure out exactly what people were doing as regards their energy habits and then tax them and regulate them.
 
The idea that a handful of men can force billions to do their bidding is a fairly ridiculous notion in our view. As their dominant social themes have proven less effective in the 21st century, the elites have turned to violence and war. Yet violence is not only an ineffective way of moving society in a certain direction, it is an unpredictable one.
 
The Internet Reformation is a wonderful thing. Ten or fifteen years ago, a movement to dump Smart Meters would likely never have seen the light of day. There would have been no way to disseminate the information even if one could have concluded that Smart Meters were not what the authorities were claiming they were.
 
Conclusion: That a backlash against Smart Meters could have come so soon is further proof of our observation regarding the new communication technology: It is a process, not an episode.

Poll- Do we need a clearer definition of ‘natural’?
 
In the world of food marketing, perception is everything. Consumers want foods that sound wholesome, friendly, and above all “natural” – although they are rarely able to articulate what this means. — And they are not alone. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to establish a formal definition for the term ‘natural’ on food labels but follows a 1993 policy that states: “[FDA] has not objected to the use of the term [natural] on food labels provided it is used in a manner that is truthful and not misleading and the product does not contain added color, artificial flavors or synthetic substances.” — But this has not cleared everything up. What about modified starch, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, ingredients extracted with organic solvents, high fructose corn syrup or genetically engineered foods or a string of other substances that can be found on the ‘unacceptable ingredients’ lists of companies such as Whole Foods Market? [U8] Many people have argued persuasively that trying to define natural is a fool’s errand. But others believe it should be pinned down regardless because if two companies are using the same term on their food labels, it should mean the same thing. What do you think? Do we need a more precise definition of ‘natural’ to ensure it is used more consistently in food labeling and marketing? — And if so, who should drive this initiative? The FDA? Or industry associations such as the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the Food Marketing Institute, or the Natural Products Association (which has already developed a Natural Seal certification scheme for home and personal care and is working on a similar initiative for foods)? [U9]

TSP- Trisodium phosphate
 
Trisodium phosphate (TSP, E339) is a cleaning agent, food additive, stain remover and degreaser. It is a white, granular or crystalline solid, highly soluble in water producing an alkaline solution. The item of commerce is often partially hydrated and may range from anhydrous trisodium phosphate, Na3PO4, to the dodecahydrate, Na3PO4·12H2O. Most often found in white powder form, it can also be called trisodium orthophosphate or just plain sodium phosphate. Trisodium phosphate was at one time extensively used in formulations for a wide variety of consumer grade soaps and detergents, but ecological problems have largely ended that practice, at least in the western world. Substitutes are not as effective, but the raw chemical can be bought in bulk to add to underpowered detergents.— The major use for trisodium phosphate is in cleaning agents. The pH of a 1% solution is 12, and the solution is [U1]sufficiently alkaline to saponify grease and oils. In combination with surfactants, TSP is an excellent agent for cleaning everything from laundry to concrete driveways. This versatility and low manufacturing price, made TSP the preferred basis for a plethora of cleaning products sold in the mid-20th century. TSP is still sold, and used, as a cleaning agent, but during the late 1960s in the United States government regulators in seventeen states determined that overuse led to a series of ecological problems –By the end of the 20th century, many products that formerly contained TSP were manufactured with TSP Substitutes, which consist mainly of sodium carbonate along with various admixtures of nonionic surfactants and a limited percentage of sodium phosphates.—( BAKING SODA )—TSP is commonly used after cleaning with mineral spirits in order to remove hydrocarbon residues-TSP may be used with household chlorine bleach in the same solution without hazardous reactions.[4] This mixture is particularly good for removing mildew.—
 
Food additive–Trisodium phosphate is approved as a food additive in the EU[7] and other countries. It has the E number E339 and is used as an acidity regulator in a variety of food products
 
Exercise performance enhancement–TSP has gained a following as a nutritional supplement that can improve certain parameters of exercise performance.[8] The basis of this belief is the fact that phosphate is required for the energy-producing Krebs cycle central to aerobic metabolism. Phosphates are available from a number of other sources that are much milder than TSP. While trisodium phosphate is not toxic per se, it is severely irritating to gastric mucosa unless used as part of a buffered solution. Studies have shown that loading with TSP may increase an athlete’s VO2 Max as well as reducing the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles Dosing is typically 3-4 grammes per day for three days prior to competition.—Making a 1 % a solution you would take 1 gram to 1 litre—- will equal or 1 mg per serving–

Coconut flour Pancakes ( bread )
 
Here is the coconut flour pancake recipe I found the other day. I have made them 3 times already! and they keep getting better every time. So even if they dont turn out perfect the first time you will definitely want to make them again because they are delicious and help with the carb cravings!
 
For yourself and local listeners you can buy coconut flour at Zerhs in the gluten free section. Cheapest brand ‘lets do organic’ is 6 dollars for 454g. I still have to check out bulk barn and international shops for a coconut flour resource. But 6 bucks isn’t bad for a carb fix.
 
Enjoy,

Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes 🙂
 
Recipe Notes: Both cow, coconut milk and kefir (I water the kefir down so its half and half) work well in this recipe. You can also add cinnamon or fruit as desired. Just keep the pancakes small and watch them so they don’t burn.
 
Ingredients:
 
* 4 eggs
* 1 cup Milk (cow, coconut or Kefir)
* 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 1 tablespoon honey or a pinch of stevia
* 1/2 cup coconut flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
* coconut oil or butter for frying
 
Directions:
 
1. preheat pan at medium-low heat. In a small bowl beat eggs until frothy, about 2 min. Mix in milk, vanilla, honey or stevia.
2. In a medium-sized bowl combine coconut flour, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk together. stir in wet mixture into dry until coconut flour is incorporated. (the pancake mix should look thicker than flour based pancake mix)
3. Grease pan with butter or coconut oil. Ladle a few tablespoons of batter into pan for each pancake. spread out slightly with back of the spoon. the pancakes should be 2-3 inches in diameter and fairly thick. Cook for a few min on each side, until the tops dry out slightly and the bottoms start to brown. flip and cook an additional 2-3 min. 4. Serve with butter, coconut oil, honey, peanut butter, syrup or fruit.

Even the Cleanest Wastewater Contributes to More ‘Super Bacteria’
 
Exemplary wastewater treatment mixed with pristine surface waters made the Duluth, Minn., area an ideal location for this study. -ScienceDaily (Nov. 14, 2011) — A new University of Minnesota study reveals that treated municipal wastewater — even wastewater treated by the highest-quality treatment technology — can result in significant quantities of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, often referred to as “superbacteria,” in surface waters.—The study also suggests that standard wastewater treatment technologies probably release far greater quantities of antibiotic-resistant genes used by bacteria, but this likely goes unnoticed because background levels of bacteria are normally much higher than in the water studied in this research.—The new study is led by civil engineering associate professor Timothy LaPara in the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities College of Science and Engineering. The study is published in the most recent issue of Environmental Science and Technology, a journal of the American Chemical Society. The research was part of a unique class project in a graduate-level civil engineering class at the University of Minnesota focused on environmental microbiology.–Antibiotics are used to treat numerous bacterial infections, but the ever-increasing presence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria has raised substantial concern about the future effectiveness of antibiotics. In response, there has been increasing focus on environmental reservoirs of antibiotic resistance over the past several years. Antibiotic use in agriculture has been heavily scrutinized, while the role of treated municipal wastewater has received little attention as a reservoir of resistance.—Antibiotic-resistant bacteria develop in the gastrointestinal tracts of people taking antibiotics. These bacteria are then shed during defecation, which is collected by the existing sewer infrastructure and passed through a municipal wastewater treatment facility.—In this study, the Ph.D. students and professor examined the impact of municipal wastewater in Duluth, Minn., on pristine surface waters by gathering water samples from the St. Louis River, Duluth-Superior Harbor, and Lake Superior in northeastern Minnesota. The treatment facility in Duluth is considered one of the best. After solids and biological matter are removed, the Duluth wastewater treatment is one of only a few in the country that filter water a third time through a mixed media filter to remove additional particles of bacteria and nutrients. Standard wastewater treatment treats water twice to remove solids and biological matter.—“This was a unique and ideal location for this study because of the exemplary wastewater treatment mixed with surprisingly pristine surface waters with very low background levels of bacteria that wouldn’t mask our results,” LaPara said. “Previous studies in which treated municipal wastewater was implicated as a source of antibiotic resistance were more convoluted because multiple sources of antibiotic resistance genes existed, such as agricultural activity and industrial wastewater discharges.”– While the levels of overall bacteria were still relatively low in the surface water samples, researchers in the University of Minnesota study found that the quantities of antibiotic-resistant genes and human-specific bacteria were typically 20-fold higher at the site where treated wastewater was released into the Duluth-Superior Harbor compared to nearby surface water samples.–“Current wastewater treatment removes a very large fraction of the antibiotic resistance genes,” LaPara said. “But this study shows that wastewater treatment operations need to be carefully considered and more fully studied as an important factor in the global ecology of antibiotic resistance.” In addition to LaPara, researchers involved in the study include civil engineering Ph.D. students Tucker Burch, Patrick McNamara, David Tan; and bioproducts and biosystems engineering Ph.D. student Mi Yan, with help from soil, water and climate Ph.D. student Jessica Eichmiller.—The University of Minnesota research study was funded by the National Science Foundation’s broader impacts effort, which combines research and education. The Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund paid for time on the R/V Blue Heron ship to collect water samples.–Story Source–The above story is reprinted from materials provided by University of Minnesota.

MSM Production and what you need to know!!
 
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) Production
 
MSM has been around for more than 35 years. DMSO and MSM research can be traced back to the 1950s. In fact, there are more than 55,000 studies on DMSO alone. Since DMSO breaks down in the body to MSM and other sulfur compounds, there is considerable evidence of its safety, along with two acute toxicity studies on MSM that basically attest to it being as safe to consume as water.
 
Again, similarly, I’m also sure that the vast majority of people are well aware that MSM is not, nor cannot be extracted directly from a pine tree! Suggestions to the contrary (often seen on web sites and quoted in the press) reveal a fundamental ignorance of the very basics of source.
 
Methyl Groups
 
In the case of MSM, the source material, rather than being Nectar as in the honey example above, are the Methyl groups (Ref 9) (One of the commonest structural units of organic compounds, consisting of three hydrogen atoms bonded to a carbon atom, which is linked to the remainder of the molecule. The methyl radical (CH3), the methyl cation (CH+3), and the methyl anion (CH-3)34 are transient intermediates in many chemical reactions.
 
Where do the Methyl Groups come from? In the case of Pine Tree Source MSM:
 
The Methyl Groups are found within the Lignin (Ref 10) structures of pine trees. Organic Lignin is the second most prevalent organic substance on earth, organic cellulose being the most prevalent. Organic Lignins are described as “The cement like bonds which hold organic cellulose together” constituting from a quarter to a third of the dry mass of wood. Needless to say, Lignin is vital in the structure of all living plant material. It is also the substance which contains the methyl groups (source material) we need for the production of “natural” source MSM as opposed to Fossil Fuel MSM.—- In the case of Fossil Fuel Source MSM (often called petrochemical or synthetic MSM)—The Methyl Groups are derived from the Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) (Ref 11) by-product of petrochemical works. After oil and petrol have been refined there are a large number of by-products. DMSO in this case, is one of the by-products of the manufacture of Petrochemicals.—Where does the DMSO come from for the manufacture of pine tree source MSM?—First we need to have a brief look at paper manufacture (Ref 12). Paper manufacturers use both mechanical and chemical methods to obtain the pulp fibres from trees needed to make paper. Mechanical pulping results in the vast majority of lignin going into the paper (This tends to make paper yellow with time) In contrast, chemical pulping breaks down the chemical structures of lignin and renders it soluble in the cooking liquor, so that it may be washed from the cellulose fibres. Because lignin holds the plant cells together, chemical pulping frees the fibres and makes pulp. The resulting by-product of paper manufacture is black liquor (Ref 13) which is an aqueous solution of lignin residues, hemicellulose and the inorganic chemicals used in the process. The black liquor is refined to obtain Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).—Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) (CH3)2SO)
 
ØMSM has to be processed to obtain –no such thing as a Natural Source
Yet it is a natural product found in trees and plants and in people and animals
 
ØMSM is produced by oxidising Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO). Just like bees in the honey example further above, we use a number of ingredients to facilitate this process, however, unlike honey, MSM produced by distillation is extremely pure.—-The process we use to manufacture MSM reflects the way it is produced in the earth’s upper atmosphere. The result is pure MSM identical to that produced by nature— ØHence, the only viable method for producing large commercial quantities of these life-giving sulfur compounds is by using chemical technology. Therefore, one can not buy “natural” MSM. It is not commercially possible. Instead, one must rely on chemical engineering and the skills of chemical engineers to produce commercial quantities of MSM.×
 
The term “natural pine” as a source of the MSM made by other producers of MSM is misleading. MSM is made from the waste of paper making. Most paper is made from pine trees because pine tress grow fast and are cheap. The term “natural pine” is pure tripe — psychobabble. The word “natural” used there is an emotional word to make you think their stuff is better than others.

Depression and Chronic Stress Accelerates Aging
 
ScienceDaily (Nov. 9, 2011) — People with recurrent depressions or those exposed to chronic stress exhibits shorter telomeres in white blood cells. This is shown by a research team at Umeå University in a coming issue of Biological Psychiatry.–The telomere is the outermost part of the chromosome. With increasing age, telomeres shorten, and studies have shown that oxidative stress and inflammation accelerates this shortening. On this basis it has been suggested that telomere length is a measure of biological aging, and telomere length has subsequently been linked to age-related diseases, unhealthy lifestyle, and longevity. The research team shows that shorter telomere length is associated with both recurrent depression and cortisol levels indicative of exposure to chronic stress.–The study includes 91 patients with recurrent depression and 451 healthy controls. Telomere length, measured in white blood cells, is shorter among the patients compared with the control group. The scientists also examined the participants’ stress regulation using a so-called dexamethasone suppression test.–“The test revealed that cortisol levels indicative of chronic stress stress are associated with shorter telomeres in both depressed and healthy individuals,” says Mikael Wikgren, a doctoral candidate in the research group. The fact that depressed patients as a group have shorter telomere lengths compared to healthy individuals can be largely explained by the fact that more depressed people than healthy people have disturbed cortisol regulation, which underscores that cortisol regulation and stress play a major role in depressive disorders.–The article is part of Mikael Wikgren’s dissertation work. The research team, led by Professor Rolf Adolfsson, also includes Karl-Fredrik Norrback, Ph.D, (supervisor), doctoral candidate Martin Maripuu, and project coordinator Annelie Nordin. The study was carried out in collaboration with researchers from the Department of Medical Bioscience, Umeå University, as well as scientists at Stockholm University, Linköping University, and Antwerp University.
