and Your Health
|For the past century, Americans have
been taught that the fats humans have
healthily consumed for 30,000 years are evil
and horribly unhealthy. Yet, heart disease,
obesity, and diabetes have dramatically
increased alongside our use of margarine,
shortening, and corn oil, introduced just one
hundred years ago.
|The first and most important
function of food is to build and repair

and oils are one of the most essential foods
to consume every day. They are needed for
your brain and nervous system, for energy
production and for making most of the body’s
vital hormones. Children, in particular,
absolutely require plenty of fats and oils,
particularly EPA and DHA. These are two
omega-3 essential fatty acids needed for
development of the nervous system. Quality
fats and oils are also essential for
transporting all vitamins, minerals and
hormones in and out of every one of the body
cells. Fat also serves as the first
and strongest line of defense in our immune
|Adding saturated fat to the diet
has been shown in medical research to encourage
the liver cells to dump their fat content.
Clearing fat from the liver is the critical
first step to calling a halt to middle-body fat
storage. Additionally, saturated fat has been
shown to protect the liver from the toxic
insults of alcohol and medications, including
acetaminophen and other drugs commonly used for
pain and arthritis, such as nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs, and even
to reverse the damage once it has occurred.
|Fats for Lungs
|For proper function, the
airspaces of the lungs have to be coated with a
thin layer of what’s called lung surfactant. The
fat content of lung surfactant is 100 percent
saturated fatty acids. Replacement of these
critical fats by other types of fat makes faulty
surfactant and potentially causes breathing
difficulties. Absence of the correct amount and
composition of this material leads to collapse
of the airspaces and respiratory distress.
|Fats for Proper Brain
|You will likely be astounded to
learn that your brain is mainly made of fat and
cholesterol. Though many people are now familiar
with the importance of the highly unsaturated
essential fatty acids found in cold-water fish
(EPA and DHA) for normal brain and nerve
function, the lion’s share of the fatty acids in
the brain are actually saturated. A diet that
skimps on healthy saturated fats robs your brain
of the raw materials it needs to function
Fats assist in the development and function of
the brain and nervous system, and they help
regulate proper thyroid and adrenal activity.
They play a role in thinning your blood, which
can prevent blood clots that lead to heart
attacks and stroke. They also possess natural
anti-inflammatory qualities that can relieve
symptoms of both arthritis and other autoimmune
|Certain saturated fats,
particularly those found in butter, tallow,
coconut oil, and palm oil, function directly as
signaling messengers that influence the
metabolism, including such critical jobs as the
appropriate release of insulin.
|Fats and Immune Health
|Saturated fats found in butter
and coconut oil (myristic acid and lauric acid)
play key roles in immune health. Loss of
sufficient saturated fatty acids in the white
blood cells hampers their ability to recognize
and destroy foreign invaders, such as viruses,
bacteria, and fungi. Human breast milk is quite
rich in myristic and lauric acid, which have
potent germ-killing ability. But the importance
of the fats lives on beyond infancy; we need
dietary replenishment of them throughout
adulthood, middle age, and into seniority to
keep the immune system vigilant against the
development of cancerous cells as well as
|Cholesterol and saturated
fat is what makes up our cell membranes
|When our cells are damaged, or
our arteries are damaged, it is cholesterol that
comes to the rescue and creates healing. High
serum cholesterol levels often indicate that the
body needs cholesterol to protect itself and
heal it self. The exception here is that there
are some cases where a short term avoidance of
fat, as a cleansing for the body’s digestive
mechanisms can be very beneficial, but not as a
long term habit.
|Fats and Cellular
|Essential fatty acids have a ton
of benefits on your body and its cells. They
help with cellular development and the formation
of healthy cell membranes, and they have
actually been shown to block tumor formation in
animals, as well as block the growth of human
breast cancer cells.

problem is fake or artificial fats.
The kind of fats that get altered for
various reasons—like hydrogenated
trans fat that were created to prolong
shelf life of other fake and processed
fats like all hydrogenated oils, soy, corn and
safflower oils, cottonseed oil, and canola oil
are very problematic. These fats are heated to
very high temperatures in processing (or when
frying or cooking) and have been shown to
cause cancer, heart disease, immune system
dysfunction, sterility, learning disabilities,
growth problems and osteoporosis. These fake
fats are definitely doing their part in our
obesity and disease epidemic.
The human body is about 97% saturated and
monounsaturated fat, with only 3 %
Polyunsaturated fats. Half of that three
percent is Omega-3 fats, and that balance
needs to be there. Vegetable oils contain very
high levels of polyunsaturated fats, and these
oils have replaced many of the saturated fats
in our diets since the 1950s.
The body needs fats for rebuilding cells and
hormone production, but it has to use the
building blocks we give it. When we give it a
high concentration of polyunsaturated fats
instead of the ratios it needs, it has no
choice but to incorporate these fats into our
cells during cell repair and creation.
The problem is that polyunsaturated fats are
highly unstable and oxidize easily in the body
(if they haven’t already oxidized during
processing or by light exposure while sitting
on the grocery store shelf). These oxidized
fats cause inflammation and mutation in cells.
In arterial cells, these mutations cause
inflammation that can clog arteries. When
these fats are incorporated into skin cells,
their mutation causes skin cancer. (This is
why people often get the most dangerous forms
of skin cancer in places where they are never
exposed to the sun, but that is a topic for
When these oils are incorporated into cells
in reproductive tissue, some evidence suggests
that this can spur problems like endometriosis
and PCOS. In short, the body is made up of
saturated and monounsaturated fats, and it
needs these for optimal health.”
Bottom line: Don’t eat fats like Vegetable
oil, peanut oil, canola oil, soybean oil,
margarine, shortening or other chemically
altered fats. Choose fats like coconut oil,
real butter, olive oil (don’t heat!) and
animal fats (tallow from cow of sheep fat)
from healthy sources instead and eat lots of
high Omega-3 fish.
|Fluoride a Deadly Poison
Fluoride is a deadly poison. Just a small
amount, approximately ½ a teaspoon will kill
someone who weighs a hundred pounds. Regularly
absorbing this poison through toothpaste,
mouth rinse, dental visits, or tap water puts
a tremendous strain on the liver. The slow
poisoning of fluoride can contribute to the
break down of the liver and other organs and
glands. Dr. Dean Burk was a highly respected
chemist who worked for the National Cancer
institute. He testified before congress that
he believed fluoridation to have caused about
1/10 th of all cancer deaths. That’s 61,000
people per year.

A Day To Keep The Dr. Away
Chances are, you've only tasted a few of the
many varieties of apples because supermarkets
offer a small selection that typically
includes Gala, Cortland, Granny Smith,
McIntosh, and the most popular -- Red
Delicious. Regardless of the type, apples are
a perfect addition to your weight-loss plan
for a number of reasons.
Apples are low in calories and fat, low in
sodium, and contain vitamins and minerals as
well as fiber. These can all help you to lose
weight in different ways. The fiber helps you
feel full longer because it expands in your
stomach so it takes less food to satisfy your
hunger. Apples are a low-sodium food that can
be a good addition to a healthy diet. Keeping
your sodium low will help prevent excess water
weight, or retention. And, the vitamins
benefit you by increasing health and vitality.
Of course, being active helps burn extra
calories to speed up weight loss.
It turns out the
simple apple is a jewel when it comes to
healthy eating. There are even enzymes found
in apples that might help your body digest
food more efficiently.
Even though it's not bursting with nutrients
like some of the other fruits, an apple a day
may do more than keep the doctor away. For
starters, apples are a good source of vitamin
C, an antioxidant, and research has shown that
antioxidants help prevent heart disease and
the formation of some cancers. They have
heart-healthy effects, too -- apples are
loaded with pectin, which may help keep blood
cholesterol levels in check. When it dissolves
in water, soluble fiber creates a gummy,
gel-like substance that binds bile acids and
draws cholesterol out of the bloodstream.
Soluble fiber's stickiness also slows the
absorption of carbohydrates, keeping blood
sugar levels on an even keel. And apples may
contribute to a healthy smile and fresh breath

and Horseradish are Stimulants
|Did you know that
the habenero and horseradish are stimulants that
quicken and excite the body? They energize the
body (helping it to marshal its defenses against
invading viruses). In addition, they help to
carry blood to all parts of the body. They are
also diaphoretics and thus help raise the
temperature of the body, which increases the
activity of the body's immune system.
Horseradish, in particular, contains volatile
oils that are similar to those found in mustard.
In test tubes, the volatile oils in horseradish
have shown antibiotic properties, which may
account for its effectiveness in treating throat
and upper respiratory tract infections.
At levels attainable in human urine after taking
the volatile oil of horseradish, the oil has
been shown to kill bacteria that can cause
urinary tract infections, and one early trial
found that horseradish extract may be a useful
treatment for people with urinary tract
