Book Review: The Hungry Brain


http://slatestarcodex.com/2017/04/25/book-review-the-hungry-brain/

I.

The Hungry Brain gives off a bit of a Malcolm Gladwell vibe, with its cutesy name and pop-neuroscience style. But don’t be fooled. Stephan Guyenet is no Gladwell-style dilettante. He’s a neuroscientist studying nutrition, with a side job as a nutrition consultant, who spends his spare time blogging about nutrition, tweeting about nutrition, and speaking at nutrition-related conferences. He is very serious about what he does and his book is exactly as good as I would have hoped. Not only does it provide the best introduction to nutrition I’ve ever seen, but it incidentally explains other neuroscience topics better than the books directly about them do. Read more

British Town Mass-Medicating School Children with Free Fluoridated Milk


British Town Mass-Medicating School Children with Free Fluoridated Milk

Waking Times

The town of Blackpool, located on the northwest coast of England, began distributing fluoridated milk to about 8000 primary school children, after The Blackpool Town Council approved the program in early 2016. Fluoridated milk is now available via the town’s free school breakfast program. Read more

The Miracle that is Vitamin C


The post Can You Cure the Incurable? appeared first on LewRockwell.

Written with an eloquent flowing style, this book makes the case for Vitamin C as a remarkable medicine that has been overlooked by the medical establishment. Although the crowning achievement of modern medical science is the invention of antibiotics which cures bacterial infections, we have no antibiotics effective for acute viral illness.

Dr. Levy says this is incorrect because Vitamin C is a curative “antibiotic” for viral diseases when used properly in high enough dosage by IM or IV route.

Dr. Levy’s book makes a number of points:

1) Vitamin C is not really a vitamin needed in trace amounts, it is needed in large amounts as a co-factor in oxidation-reduction reactions in the cellular biochemistry.

2) All animals, with the exception of primates, have the enzymes to make their own vitamin C. They do not need to consume Vitamin C in their diet, they make their own.

3) All humans (and primates) lack this final enzyme for the manufacture of vitamin C, and therefore we must consume Vit C in our diet. We have a genetic deficiency in GLO gulano-lactone-oxidase, the final step for the manufacture of vitamin C.

4) Because of this genetic defect, we all have a subclinical Vitamin C deficiency making us more susceptible to infectious diseases.

5) The 60 mg dosage RDA for vitamin C is adequate to prevent scurvy but is insufficient for optimal health.

6) Adequate human “Opti-Doses” of vitamin C based on animal studies is in the range of 3-5 grams per day, and this requirement increases during periods of stress or infection.

7) IV or IM Vitamin C in the appropriate dosage ranges has been clinically proven to cure acute viral diseases such as polio, acute hepatitis, measles, mumps, chickenpox, shingles, viral encephalitis.

The most amazing evidence presented in the book is the work of Frederick R Klenner, a doctor in North Carolina who cured 60 of 60 acute polio cases with IM or IV vitamin C and published his findings in Southern Medicine & Surgery, Volume 103, Number 4, April 1951, pp. 101-107. Klenner wrote more than 20 other publications. Polio vaccine was introduced shortly afterward, and Klenner’s work with Vitamin C was simply ignored.

Because of the unconstitutional FDA ruling which prohibits Vitamin C manufacturers from informing the public, very few people are aware of this research showing the incredible benefits of vitamin C.

Missing from the book is the fact that most commercially available Vitamin C products contain a mixture of unbuffered L and R isomers of vitamin C, an inferior product. The buffered 100% L-ascorbate version of Vitamin C is vastly superior. Also missing from the book is a discussion of the Linus Pauling protocol for prevention of heart disease with Vitamin C, proline, and lysine.

I have had numerous conversations about vitamin C with other doctor friends, and colleagues I have known for 25 years, and invariably any comment about Vitamin C is met with ridicule, laughter, and disbelief. Sadly, that is the current state of the medical establishment. Perhaps Dr. Thomas Levy’s book will serve to change this, and one day soon, mainstream medicine will embrace a remarkable medicine that has been overlooked.

Can Pickle Juice Prevent Muscle Cramps?


By Dr. Mercola

Pregnant women aren’t the only ones with an occasional hankering for pickles. The sharp, salty and briny deliciousness of these crunchy cucumbers is a favorite worldwide.

Notably, the word “pickle” comes from the northern German word “pókel” or Dutch “pekel,” both meaning “salt” or “brine.” Actually, these are two of the most important elements of the pickling process. Read more

Unearthed Correspondence Reveals How Sugar Industry Manipulated Nutritional Science for Decades


By Dr. Mercola

For years, we’ve been warned about the dangers of eating too much fat or salt, but health authorities and media have been relatively silent about sugar, despite rising obesity rates and failing health in just about every area that has adopted a Western processed food diet.

The sad truth is, there’s copious amounts of research, spanning many decades, showing that excess sugar damages your health in many ways, yet the sugar industry managed to bury the evidence and cover it up with faux science that supports its own claims, which is that sugar has little or nothing to do with weight gain and ill health.
