The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

From Janet:

Why Sugar is Bad

“Leaky gut has been found in association with several diseases including: asthma, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel, kidney disease, psoriasis, eczema, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, and heart failure. Now we even understand how it happens. In what is likely to be Nobel Prize-worthy work, Harvard celiac researcher, Alessio Fasano, MD found that our bodies make a protein (with the nifty name, “Zonulin”) that essentially unzips the tight junctions that seal the intestinal lining.”  Click here for the rest of the article
Good Medical Advice



From Janet:

“Besides the effect of endocrine disruption, it is already known that the gluten in wheat contains opiate-like components known as gluten exorphins.

“No matter what the exact mechanism of action, it is clear that wheat (especially modern, highly hybridized and gluten rich wheat) can no longer be considered the wholesome, glorified health food that it once was for decades, and even centuries – at least not for everyone.”
