  • GMOs, Grains, Gluten, and Your Immune System - CHTV Episode 6

    11/30/2015 8:25:34 AM PST · by WhiskeyX · 14 replies
    YouTube ^ | Feb 14, 2014 | Dr. Daniel Pompa
    There are two main reasons grains need to be eliminated from the diet. The first reason is that most grains are genetically modified (GMO), which causes the denaturing of proteins and carbohydrates to the point where your body does not recognize them as foods. Your immune system will create an inflammatory reaction in response to these denatured foods. There is much media attention about gluten today. Gluten is just one denatured protein in grains that is causing a host of problems at the cellular level. Many consumers are hearing about the dangers of gluten, and are selecting other grains that...

    Dutch brewing company Grolsch will be put up for sale in an effort to win Brussels approval for a merger between the world’s two biggest beer groups, the Sunday Times said at the weekend.AB Inbev will agree to sell Grolsch and Peroni so it can keep its own top names, including Stella Artois, the paper said.AB Inbev struck a deal to take over Grolsch owner SABMiller earlier in November for around €60 a share, a 50% premium on the closing price on September 14.British-South African brewing group SABMiller bought Grolsch for €816m at the end of 2007.City sources told the...

    Many people have Thansgiving traditions. One of our neighbors has the Thanksgiving tradition of getting drunk and running over our mailbox. Last summer, I cemented in our mailbox and used heavy pipe. Cut his car in half this Thanksgiving like Grandpa using the electric knife on the turkey. When the cops pulled him out of the left half of the car, he was yelling at them that he'd never win the race with a pit crew as slow as them. One of our family traditions is that I do the Thanksgiving grocery shopping. I feel it's part of the manly...

    Washington post ^ | June 11 2015 | Sarah kaplin
    The sickness spread at funerals. The Fore people, a once-isolated tribe in eastern Papua New Guinea, had a long-standing tradition of mortuary feasts — eating the dead from their own community at funerals. Men consumed the flesh of their deceased relatives, while women and children ate the brain. It was an expression of respect for the lost loved ones, but the practice wreaked havoc on the communities they left behind. That’s because a deadly molecule that lives in brains was spreading to the women who ate them, causing a horrible degenerative illness called “kuru” that at one point killed 2...

    I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving, and is now enjoying plenty of leftovers! We took the advice of 'boatbums', and did a dry brine for the first time - just salt. It turned out wonderfully, despite a near disaster. We began with a fresh turkey, and my husband salted it a few days ahead, dried the turkey naked in the fridge overnight, and started it in the oven at 450 degrees on The Day. A couple of hours later, the probe thermometer went off, and we stared at each other: something was wrong, and there was no way the...

The Gautier Cognac was purchased by collector Wealth Solutions in 2014 during an auction of rare wines and liquors organised by Bonhams Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers in New York. The bottle itself dates back to 1762 and was recognised as the oldest Cognac sold at public auction to-date when it went under the hammer. It was opened during a ceremony to mark the partnership...

    11/25/2015 | LoneRangerMassachusetts
    For years, I have slow roasted a turkey for Thanksgiving. I bake it at 180 degrees for an estimated time of one hour per pound. This rule has worked for 25 years. Tonight, the thermometer is rising about twice as fast as usual. I put a second thermometer into the bird to check the first. I put an oven thermometer into the over to check its temperature. I found no disparities in the thermometers. Something is different with this bird. It's from Whole Foods, no hormones. I've gotten my turkeys from them for years. What's going on with my turkey?

Three years later, in November 1623, they had a great feast thanking God for getting them through an earlier famine, and now for a bountiful crop. What had created the earlier famine and then the bountiful crops? The story is told in the diary of Governor Bradford, who was one of the elders of that early Puritan colony.

    Sobering report. If you have cancer, you should avoid sugar of any kind. If you don't want cancer, I suggest that you limit your sugar intake. Avoid "high fructose corn syrup", and processed sugars. If you want to lose weight, avoid things that quickly become sugar (white breads, potato, rice, alcohol, etc). Reducing these things has a major impact on your liver and pancreas. Eat lots of green things!

    YouTube ^ | Mar 2, 2015 | TheIHMC; Thomas Seyfried
    Emerging evidence indicates that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease involving disturbances in energy production through respiration and fermentation. Cancer is suppressed following transfer of the nucleus from the tumor cell to cytoplasm of normal cells containing normal mitochondria. These findings indicate that nuclear genetic abnormalities cannot be responsible for cancer despite commonly held beliefs in the cancer field. The genomic instability observed in tumor cells and all other recognized hallmarks of cancer are considered downstream epiphenomena of the initial disturbance of cellular energy metabolism. The disturbances in tumor cell energy metabolism can be linked to abnormalities in the structure...

On Wednesday and Thursday, more than 20 Tim Hortons locations abruptly closed in Maine, New York City, and upstate New York. Local news stations reported that employees didn't receive much advance notice, with a one employee telling Syracuse.com that the company showed “no respect” for employees, with the surprise layoffs on the cusp of the holiday season. Employees were further infuriated because they reported that many of the closed locations...

    Japan is famous as a nation that loves raw seafood. But dried fish has a much longer history here and has played an important role in Japanese society for hundreds of years. There are basically two kinds of dried fish products in Japan. The first, which goes by various names, is dried (sometimes after fermenting) for a long period until it’s rock-hard and keeps very well, such as katsuobushi, fermented and dried skipjack tuna or bonito that is shaved like wood and used in dashi stock. The other type is usually called himono (roughly translates as “dried things”), which is...

    Obesity is a condition of excess fat accumulation in adipocytes where the person is literally stuck in storage mode diverting a disproportionate amount of calories into fat cells as opposed to oxidation. Thus it is more productive to think of obesity as a problem in 'energy flow' rather than energy expenditure (i.e., calories in, calories out). The most efficient approach to accelerate the body's ability to access and burn body fat is to restrict dietary carbohydrate while increasing fat intake for a period of several weeks, after which fatty acids and ketones become the primary fuel at rest and during...

Most eggs are perfectly safe to eat and according to the American Egg Board only about one in 20,000 eggs may contain salmonella. Thats all fine for now but what about SHTF eggs? one should error on the side of caution when it pertains to food safety.
