Alcohol Causes Cancer

New evidence of alcohol industry distortion of science

It is well known in the scientific literature that alcohol is a causative agent in at least seven different types of cancer including two of the commonest – breast and colorectal – but also including mouth, pharynx, larynx, oesophagus, and liver. The evidence is based on over 100 studies since 2007, and the risk is not simply associated with heavy drinking; quite moderate amounts of alcohol are associated with an increased risk of cancer.

However, the public is surprisingly ignorant of these facts and one of the main reasons for this appears to be distortion of the evidence by the alcohol industry.

New research from Professor Mark Petticrew of the London School

Bisphenol A

The poison in plastics

Bisphenol A is most often referred to as BPA for short and it’s one of the more contentious chemicals in daily use by most people. It’s a chemical that’s widely used in food and beverage packaging to protect food from contamination and extend shelf life. It’s also used in a great many non-food products including most polycarbonate plastics.

So it may be in the frames and lenses of your spectacles, water and drink bottles, the plastic components of your car, many canned foods, food containers and even some clothing. Many believe that this hormone-disrupting industrial chemical poses greatest risk to pregnant women, infants and children. Because BPA acts in the human body (and animals) as an

That Sugar Film

Sweet and deadly

Most of us have grown up to love sweet things even though it’s impossible to eat sugar by itself. But now in this new age of information, the advertisers and the corporations they represent encourage us to consume as much sugar as possible but on the other hand modern medicine is saying that sugar makes us fat, rots teeth, causes diabetes, heart disease and cancers.

What to believe?

In the early history of European sugar consumption, sugary foods and drinks became the new fad but sugar also fuelled industry or should we say trade and corporate greed? The plantations that grew sugar for European consumption were located in the Caribbean. The trading

Our Sweet Downfall

Loss of health, delusion and addiction

Spare your body – sweet pleasure undermines health and the ability to enjoy life

Our love affair with sweets began when our parents used them as panaceas and bribes. When combined with untruths the result is often behavioural deviance.

One cannot categorically state that sugar is the root cause of all deviant behaviour, however it is a significant factor. The consumption of sugar as sweets gives a boost of sensory delight and energy that is addictive.

Food manufacturers know this and add sugar to most processed foods to keep people consuming their products.

Many of us as children were introduced to sweets and many of us continually pushed the margins for sweet rewards.

Dental Care

Slowing the decay

Oral hygiene and the prevention of tooth decay are priorities for most people and when it comes to dental care, treatments are expensive and seldom covered by insurance or national health care plans.

Most of us at some time in our lives will get some degree of tooth decay, cavities or even gum disease. The most common cause of tooth decay is the consumption of sugar. This substance is so toxic that young children given unlimited access to soft drinks even lose their baby teeth to decay and great numbers of teenagers lose their teeth due to sugar, and other dietary or lifestyle habits.

Other factors that increase the likelihood of cavities besides sugary foods and

The USification of Food

Along with it’s version of democracy, the USA spreads diabetes, heart disease and more

There’s an old family catchphrase that ‘your mother knows best’ that is often used in conjunction with ‘ask your mother’ or ‘ask your father’. Mother knows best as a phrase used to placate women in the patriarchal society whereas ask your mother or ask your father a fundamental phrases indicating blindness to the truth and an avoidance of responsibility.

The way of live for people of the USA has been to modulus, they stole the land they now occupy, exterminated around 100 million people and began to create an idealistic new existence based on liberty and freedom without any sense of guilt for their crimes

Plastics Update

We are slowly destroying life and ourselves

Plastic pollution poses one of the biggest known threats to the ocean, influencing all ecosystems from beautiful coral reefs to abyssal trenches, eventually accumulating in our own food. It’s time to transition away from single-use plastics and dispose of our waste more sustainably.

There have been many media stories and images of sharks, whales and other species injured and killed by plastic waste, but for a while now, scientists have known that fish are ingesting small pieces of plastic. But it wasn’t clear how much of that was reaching our dinner plate. Ecologist Chelsea Rochman wanted to find out.

Rochman, who spoke at the @montereybayaquarium Sustainable Foods Institute, sampled fish from markets in

Milk and Osteoporaosis

Milk Destroys Your Bones From the Inside

Milk and animals as food have been consumed by us for thousands of years. When the livestock are healthy and the people consuming milk and milk products as they have done in India for perhaps tens of thousands of years with the milk is primarily the A2 variety which is further processed before consumption, milk products and the animals that produce them are healthy.

Where we come to the west, the milk is the A1 variety, cows often suffer harsh conditions and a percentage of their diet is made up of agricultural chemicals which is passed on to us through the milk and meat.

In terms of osteoporosis, after

Poisoning Humanity

Or what’s killing us

What future do our children have?

The toxic residues produced by industry over the past 2000 years have been conveniently overlooked. The Romans infamously used lead pipes and the lead drove them insane. More recently we switched to copper pipes but then it was discovered that as copper ages, the oxidised copper is harmful to our health and these were replaced with galvanised steel which were too expensive and today most people use plastic which presents another set of problems.

Modern society is driven by desires and some of them like access to clean water are vitally important whereas the desire for profits or to have the same stuff as one’s neighbours is totally

Aluminium Toxicity

A great construction material – but should we be eating it?

A roll of aluminium

Aluminium is an abundant and very useful mineral salt that’s refined and widely used to make vehicles, tools, building materials and cooking utensils. It’s also used to make the tools and machinery used to process and manufacture the products and foods we use everyday.

Aluminium is used as an additive in medicines, in almost all processed foods and beverages and many skin care products.

Scientists, and the powers and authorities that govern us think that aluminium is harmless and that there is no definitive evidence that aluminium is in anyway detrimental to our health.

Despite its prevalence in the environment, aluminium salts are not
