ONE food that harms your health and you eat it each day

Reasons that refined white sugar or even Fructose can be lethal to health: This information can save your and your family members life!
KINDLY READ & Share to save lives.

Sugar causes extreme fluctuations in your blood sugar, and excess blood sugar causes Glycation inside your body, which accelerates the rate of aging of your organs, skin, arteries, joints & teeth.

Sugar also raises your triglycerides to dangerous levels, which can lead you to heart disease.
If that weren't bad enough, eating sugar too frequently also causes type 2 diabetes in the long run because you wear out your pancreas and insulin sensitivity. And if you need even MORE reasons why sugar will kill you, sugar also slows down your white blood cells, making infection more likely, and even allowing CANCER cells a better chance to form in your body.

Some people think Corn syrup high fructose is safer, which is used now in most canned soda & other beverages and foods in high amounts, but fructose is even more lethal than regular cane or beet sugar usually found in stores.
Added Sugar is High in Fructose, Which Can Overload Your Liver
Before sugar enters the bloodstream from the digestive tract, it is broken down into two simple sugars… glucose and fructose.
Overloading The Liver With Fructose Can Cause Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. When fructose get turned into fat in the liver, it is shipped out as VLDL cholesterol particles.

Sugar Can Give You Cancer
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and is characterized by uncontrolled growth and multiplication of cells.

Insulin is one of the key hormones in regulating this sort of growth
Sugar Can Cause Insulin Resistance, a Stepping Stone Towards Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes
Insulin is a very important hormone in the body.
It allows glucose (blood sugar) to enter cells from the bloodstream and tells the cells to start burning glucose instead of fat.

The Insulin Resistance Can Progress to Type II Diabetes
When our cells become resistant to the effects of insulin, the beta cells in our pancreas make more of it.This is crucial, because chronically elevated blood sugars can cause severe harm.

Having too much glucose in the blood is highly toxic and one of the reasons for complications of diabetes, like blindness.
Due to its Effects on Hormones and the Brain, Sugar has Unique Fat-Promoting Effects

Glucose is found in every living cell on the planet. If we don't get it from the diet, our bodies produce it. Because it Causes Massive Dopamine Release in The Brain, Sugar is Highly Addictive

Not the Fat It's SUGAR That Raises Your Cholesterol, Giving Heart Disease. For many decades, people have blamed saturated fat for heart disease… which is the #1 killer in the world. However… new studies are showing that saturated fat is not that harmful.

The evidence is mounting that sugar, NOT fat, may be one of the leading drivers of heart disease via the harmful effects of fructose on metabolism.

Studies show that large amounts of fructose can raise triglycerides, small, dense LDL and oxidized LDL (very, very bad), raise blood glucose and insulin levels and increase abdominal obesity… in as little as 10 weeks

Sugar can be addictive for a lot of people.
Like abusive drugs, sugar causes a release of dopamine in the reward center of the brain
Sugar is a Leading Contributor to Obesity in Both Children and Adults

The way sugar affects hormones and the brain is a recipe for fat gain disaster.
Fructose is different. Our bodies do not produce it in any significant amount and there is no physiological need for it.
If the liver is full of glycogen (much more common), eating a lot of fructose overloads the liver, forcing it to turn the fructose into fat. Excess fructose consumption may be a key driver of many of the most serious diseases of today, including: obesity, type II diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.
Glucose also comes from starches like potatoes, our bodies produce it and every cell on the face of the earth has glucose in it. Glucose is a molecule absolutely vital to life.Fructose however, is not.
Humans don't produce fructose and throughout evolutionary history have never consumed it except seasonally when fruit were ripe.

When we talk about how much damage sugar does to your body, we're NOT talking about tiny amounts such as having 5 grams of sugar from a teaspoon of honey in your tea... Small amounts of natural sugar like that are not a problem.

The REAL damage occurs when you eat that piece of cake and ingest 40-50 grams of sugar in one sitting, or that bag of candy with 35+ grams of sugar, or that soft drink with 45 grams of sugar or more... Or even that so-called healthy smoothie at the local smoothie shop that contains a whopping 80 grams of sugar because of all of the fruit syrups they use in them.

Regular acidity how to heal with alternative means

Stomach secretes acid to begin the process of digestion. This natural acid is used to break down the food. There are cases where the production of acid is increased by the glands present in the stomach, causing the condition usually known as acidity.  This acid causes severe irritation in the esophagus. Ulceration, dyspepsia, heartburn and chest pain are all symptoms of severe acidity. Some people experience such an intense chest pain that they often confuse it with a heart attack. It is also found to be more common in individuals who are nervous and highly emotional.

Now there are some Do’s and Don’ts regarding your daily diet, to prevent acidity from occurring.  Take review of the things that are actually aggravating the problem and examine your dietary habits. There are some foods containing living enzymes which are helpful in preventing and eliminating acidity.

HCL levels
The first step to prevent acidity is by increasing the production of HCL naturally in the stomach. A simple remedy to treat acidity is by substituting high quality sea salt instead of common table salt in your diet. The sea salt also provides the body with chloride and essential minerals.

Substitute processed food with organic food
The processed foods are known to exacerbate acidity; it also causes bacterial imbalance in the digestive tract. Try to eat fresh organic vegetables and fruits to combat this situation.

Raw foods instead of cooked ones
Researches show that the health improving enzymes that are found in raw foods in abundance are destroyed when cooked at 116°Fahrenheit. So it is preferable to take a favorable amount of raw foods in order to benefit from the healthy nutrients and enzymes found in them. These raw foods are also essential for reducing acidity.

Increase Vitamin D intake
An increase in Vitamin D levels helps in optimized production of at least 200 antimicrobial peptides, these peptides help to cure infections occurring in the esophagus and digestive system. You can get vitamin D in abundance from sun exposure. Also foods rich in Vitamin D should be added to the diet such as eggs, mushrooms, milk, cod liver oil and fish.

Take Regular Exercise
For the proper functioning of all the organs exercise it a must. Exercise would not only help to keep you physically fit but would also aid you in the proper digestion of food.

The above mentioned changes to your life style will help you a great deal in overcoming the acidity related problems. We also have some quick and easy natural remedies that can aid you to get rid of acidity.

Apple Cider Vinegar
If one table spoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar is mixed with 4 ounces of water and taken before every meal, it can reduce acidity to great extent. It helps to calm the stomach and also supports the digestive system. This fast-acting remedy is known to cure acute acidity symptoms and also halts its reoccurrence.

Baking soda
Bicarbonate of soda is also thought to be a great product for treating acidity. A spoonful mixed in a glass of water can act as a fast acting remedy for acidity; this mixture should be taken before the fizzing stops. However, it is suggested that people having high blood pressure should avoid taking baking soda; also people on sodium restricted diet should also consult their doctors first.

Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe Vera juice is a natural remedy for treating stomach problems such as diarrhea and ulcerative colitis. It is one of the best known remedy for treating acid reflux. One ounce of Aloe Vera juice mixed with 2 ounces of water is recommended to get rid of acidity.

Glutamine is one of the naturally occurring amino acids in our body. It can also be found in many foods such as eggs, milk, fish, spinach and parsley. Glutamine is known to aid the body in developing resistance against inflammation and also known to help reduce the inflammation of the intestine resulting from acid reflux.

Licorice is an herb that has been used for centuries and is beneficial for the digestive system. It helps the stomach by coating it with a protective gel. This herb can be used in the form of an herbal tea.

With the pH level at 5.6, banana is believed to be an effective remedy for treating acid reflux. The potassium levels found in banana is helpful for treating stomach ulcers and lowering acidity. But in 1% cases the condition is known to be worsened by taking banana.

Cabbage is found helpful in relaxing and soothing the stomach lining and irritated mucous membranes. Raw and fresh juice of cabbage is beneficial for treating ulcers, and it also stimulates blood flow to the stomach lining and strengthens it.

Don’t waste your money on over-the-counter expensive medicines for the elimination of acidity. Just try these simple remedies and feel the difference. Most of these products are commonly found in your kitchen.

Cancer fighting cheap food that you can add to your salad

Watercress delivers a powerful punch of excellent nutrients you need in abundance every day: calcium, vitamin C, folate, iron, lutein, beta-carotene, potassium, and phenylethyl isothiocyante.
Um…phen what what?
Please don’t feed the tumors
We’ll call it PEITC for short. Cruciferous vegetables such as watercress are rich in this chemical compound that inhibits the activation of a protein known as HIF. Cancer cells use HIF to create small blood vessels that feed tumors. So if you block HIF effectively, cancer cells can’t invade normal tissue.
In new research from the University of Southampton, several breast cancer survivors were asked to fast, then eat 80 grams of watercress (about enough to fill a cereal bowl). Blood was drawn from each subject before, during, and after the intervention.
Results showed a significant boost in blood levels of PEITC after eating watercress. Most importantly, the HIF function was “measurably affected.”
Now–hold those good thoughts while we look at another watercress study conducted several years ago at Ireland’s University of Ulster.
Sixty healthy adults ate 85 grams of raw watercress along with their regular daily diets. Before and after the eight week trial, researchers measured several biomarkers related to cancer risk.
Results: Antioxidant levels were significantly boosted. Triglycerides dropped by 10 percent. And DNA damage to white blood cells dropped by more than 20 percent.

Top ten poisonous foods people eat without knowing the consequences

Everyday we chow down on food produced from plants that carry deadly poisons. Most of the time we don’t need to be concerned with this as the mass production of fruit and vegetables ensures that we are usually safe, but from time to time people accidentally kill themselves by unwittingly eating the wrong part of a plant. In order to ensure that this never happens to you, I have put together a list of the most commonly seen poisons that we come in to contact with in our kitchens.


We have all heard of toadstools – and know that they are poisonous, but what many people don’t know is that a toadstool is actually a mushroom, not a separate type of plant. Toadstool is slang for “poisonous mushroom”. While there are some useful signs that a mushroom is poisonous, they are not consistent and all mushrooms of unknown origin should be considered dangerous to eat. Some of the things you can look for to try to determine whether a mushroom is poisonous are: it should have a flat cap with no bumps, it should have pink or black gills (poisonous mushrooms often have white gills), and the gills should stay attached to the cap (not the stalk) if you pull it off. But remember, while this is generally true of many types of mushroom, it is not always true.


A few days ago we had a list of embarrassing deaths, one of which included death by eating the liver of a fugu (pufferfish). The fugu is so poisonous that in Japan, fugu chefs are trained specially for the job and are tested before being a given certificates of practice. The training takes two or three years. In order to pass, the chef must answer a written test then give a demonstration of his cutting abilities. The final part of the test involves the chef eating the pieces of fugu that he has cut. Only 30% of apprentices pass the test – which is not to say that the rest die by eating their fugu – they can fail in earlier parts of the test. Only the flesh of the fugu is consumed as it is less likely to have high amounts of poison (which causes a slight tingling sensation in the mouth). Fugu is the only food officially illegal for the Emperor of Japan to eat – for his safety. Rather than including a photograph of a pufferfish, I have used a youtube clip showing a chef preparing the fugu – it is quite extraordinary.


Elderberry trees are very attractive and quite large. They are covered with thousands of tiny flowers which have a delicate scent. The flowers are used mainly for making elderflower liqueur and soda. Sometimes the flowers are eaten after being battered and deep fried. But beneath the pretty surface lurks danger! The roots and some other parts of the elderberry tree are highly poisonous and will cause severe stomach problems. So next time you decide to pick some elderberry flowers for eating, be sure to eat just the flowers.

Castor Oil

Castor oil, the bane of many of our childhoods, is regularly added to candies, chocolate, and other foods. Furthermore, many people still consume a small amount daily or force it on their unwilling children. Fortunately the castor oil we buy is carefully prepared, because the castor bean is so deadly, that it takes just one bean to kill a human, and four to kill a horse. The poison is ricin, which is so toxic that workers who collect the seeds have strict safety guidelines to prevent accidental death. Despite this, many people working in the fields gathering the seeds suffer terrible side-effects.


Almonds are one of the most useful and wonderful of seeds (it is not a nut as many people would have you believe). It has a unique taste and its excellent suitability for use in cooking have made it one of the most popular ingredients in pastry kitchens for centuries. The most flavorsome almonds are bitter almonds (as opposed to “sweet” almonds). They have the strongest scent and are the most popular in many countries. But there is one problem: they are full of cyanide. Before consumption, bitter almonds must be processed to remove the poison. Despite this requirement, some countries make the sale of bitter almonds illegal (New Zealand regretfully is one of them). As an alternative, you can use the pip from an apricot stone which has a similar flavor and poison content. Heating destroys the poison. In fact, you may not know that it is now illegal in the USA to sell raw almonds – all almonds sold are now heat-treated to remove traces of poison and bacteria.


Cherries are a very popular fruit – used in cooking, liqueur production, or eaten raw. They are from the same family as plums, apricots, and peaches. All of the previously mentioned fruits contain highly poisonous compounds in their leaves and seeds. Almonds are also a member of this family but they are the only fruit which is harvested especially for its seeds. When the seeds of cherries are crushed, chewed, or even slightly injured, they produce prussic acid (hydrogen cyanide). Next time you are eating cherries, remember not to suck on or chew the pip.


Like the previous two items, apple seeds also contain cyanide – but obviously in much smaller doses. Apple seeds are very often eaten accidentally but you would need to chew and consume a fairly high number to get sick. There are not enough seeds in one apple to kill, but it is absolutely possible to eat enough to die. I recommend avoiding apple eating competitions! Incidentally, if you want to eat an apple and find a worm in it (and hopefully not half a worm), you can drop it in a bowl of salt water which will kill the worm.


Rhubarb is a very underrated plant – it produces some of the nicest tasting puddings and is incredibly easy to grow at home. Rhubarb is something of a wonder plant – in addition to an unknown poison in its leaves, they also contain a corrosive acid. If you mix the leaves with water and soda, it becomes even more potent. The stems are edible (and incredibly tasty) and the roots have been used for over 5,000 years as a laxitive and poop-softener.


First off, a little interesting trivia: in the US, thanks to a US Supreme Court decision in 1893, tomatoes are vegetables. In the rest of the world they are considered to be fruit (or more accurately, a berry). The reason for this decision was a tax on vegetables but not fruit. You may also be interested to know that technically, a tomato is an ovary. The leaves and stems of the tomato plant contain a chemical called “Glycoalkaloid” which causes extreme nervousness and stomach upsets. Despite this, they can be used in cooking to enhance flavor, but they must be removed before eating. Cooking in this way does not allow enough poison to seep out but can make a huge difference in taste. Finally, to enhance the flavor of tomatoes, sprinkle a little sugar on them. Now we just need to work out whether they are “toe-mah-toes” or “toe-may-toes”.


Potatoes have appeared in our history books since their introduction to Europe in the 16th century. Unfortunately they appear largely due to crop failure and severe famine, but they will be forever the central vegetable of most western families daily diet. Potatoes (like tomatoes) contain poison in the stems and leaves – and even in the potato itself if left to turn green (the green is due to a high concentration of the glycoalkaloid poison). Potato poisoning is rare, but it does happen from time to time. Death normally comes after a period of weakness and confusion, followed by a coma. The majority of cases of death by potato in the last fifty years in the USA have been the result of eating green potatoes or drinking potato leaf tea.

Notable Omissions: Nutmeg

Soybean oil is very bad for your health do not consume anything with soy in it

Soy bean is popularly projected as an alternate to protein. It is a lie. It is not for humans but for animals.

Reject all or most soybean diets including the food oil sold as Vegetable oil in North America. Soy bean oil is bad for you and your children. Do not listen to so called experts and advertisers.

The heart risks of trans fat has sparked greater demand for a new variety of soybean oil, to the extent that food companies have recruited farmers to grow more of the new beans.

No Need for Hydrogenation

The new soybeans contain lower levels of the acids that make food stale or rancid, meaning their oil does not need hydrogenation, the process the creates trans fats. Most soybeans contain roughly 7 percent linolenic acid. The new varieties contain 1 to 3 percent.

Outstripping Supply

Use of the oil has increased ever since the FDA began requiring manufacturers to list trans fat content on food labels. As a result, demand for the new soybeans is beginning to outstrip the supply.

Yahoo News February 17, 2006

Dr. Mercola's Comment:You may recall that not long ago I wrote about Kellogg using new genetically modified soybean oil in some of their snack products to get rid of trans fats.

No wonder companies are frantically searching for alternatives, considering the FDA's edict that processed food products must list the amount of trans fats they contain. And supply isn't keeping up with the demand, not unlike the unsafe trend seen with Splenda.

Why these so-called healthier vegetable oils are a disastrous choice for most people: They can contain as much as 100 times the level of harmful omega-6 fats, far in excess of the average American's intake of more beneficial omega-3 fats.

We all need to eat omega-6 fats butabout the only people who are deficient in this fat are those onexclusive IV nutrition that is not supplemented with IV fat or those who are consuming a low-fat vegan diet.

Omega-6 fats are in nearlyevery animal food and many plants, so that is why deficiencies arevery rare.

Around 1900, Americans ate less than a pound of processed vegetable oil annually. Just last year, the average American atemore than 80 pounds, largely thanks to processed fast food using oils like these. Suffice to say, the human body wasn't designed to consume these high levels of vegetable fats.

Excessive consumption of omega-6-laden vegetable oils can lead to:

Heart disease
Just as virtually no one is deficient in omega-6 fats, it is very rare for the typical person to be consuming enough omega-3 fats. The vast majority of people are deficient in this critical fat.

One crucial way to right-size your intake of more beneficial omega-3 fats: Take a high-quality fish or cod liver oil daily.

And in addition, to avoid overly high quantities of omega-6 fats, avoid highly processed foods, which frequently contain heated vegetable oils and other dangerous ingredients. If you must cook with oil at home, use coconut oil. Despite the bad reputation of saturated fats, they are actually better for cooking because they are far less damaged by the heating process.
