A life 4 sale

June 24, 2008

This entry isn’t related to health but it is something a bit crazy. A guy in Australia is selling his life…everything about him…his friends, job, house, car, things he owns, everything in one package. He has a great life but he’s tired of it due his breakup.  So you can bid on his life via ebay. Here’s a link to his website. 

UPDATE: He sold his life on ebay but noone went through with the payment. So now he’s doing a new site/blog featuring his new 100 goals.

28 causes of cancer

June 24, 2008

Here’s the 28 causes of cancer (and degenerative diseases. according to Dr. Group):

1) Industrial toxins (mercury, arsenic, aluminum, etc.)
2) Polluted water (poisonous fluoride is in the tap water in the US but outlawed in some countries overseas due to its toxicity. Toxins & Prescription drugs are in water. Do not drink tap water.)
3) Tobacco and smoking (tobacco plants are sprayed with poisons)
4) Hormone therapies (birth control pills, hormones in milk and cheese, etc.)
5) Immune suppressive drugs (most drugs shut down immune system by up to 50%)
6) Vaccines (everyone should avoid ALL vaccines. They’re filled with poisons and garbage.)
7) Parasites (everyone should cleanse internally since most people have parasites)
8 ) Viruses
9) Blocked detoxification pathways (exercise and cleanse yourself internally)
10) Cellular Oxygen Deficencies
11) Excessive Fat Intake
12) Excessive Carb/Sugar Intake
13) Excessive Alcohol Intake
14) Caffeine (caffeine is acidic)
15) Chronic Stress
16) Toxic Emotions
17) Intestinal Toxicity/Digestive Impairment (cleanse internally. Start with OxyPowder. It works.)
18 ) Irradiated Foods (basically some food manufacturers pass your food through some nuclear facility and it gets sterilized by the radiation. But zapping anything causes it to form free radicals that can give you cancer. And just the living bacteria in the food disappear so you have no way of detecting that the food is old. It will magically look like it will last forever and is healthy when it is not. It’s basically toxic for your body. It went through radiation.)
19) Microwaved Foods
20) Food Additives
21) Mercury (mercury tooth fillings, mercury in tuna, etc.)
22) Dental Factors
23) Nerve Interference Fields (like in spine. Go to chiropractor for adjustments)
24) Diet and Nutritional Deficiences
25) Cellular Terrain (ie: your body’s PH is unbalanced/acidic)
26) Uncogenes (ie: genes that transform from regular cells into cancer cells)
27) Genetic Predisposition
28 ) Myasm (A taint of a past relative’s predisposition still in your body)

Solutions:
-For more info and prevention tips, see the Radio/tv/online audio interviews from Dr. Group, click here. (Make sure you have time since there’s many of them and they’re lengthy).

-Top prevention tips: Get rid of your microwave and also cleanse yourself internally. Also Dr. Group’s dvd called “The Secret to Health” is also very informative so you can understand your body. Also eat organic food.


Microwaved food is dangerous

June 23, 2008

Microwaved food is seriously destructive to your health and destroys the nutrients in the food. 

Solution: Get rid of your microwave. Use the regular oven if you have time, or if you want quick food then get a convection oven. Here’s one example of a convection oven…Shop around for the right one for you.

For more info, view the video on a microwave’s dangers that I saw on Dr. Group’s video blog.

This doesn’t follow the typical format for my blog but I stumbled upon these pages about Wacky Holidays so I thought I’d add it to my Crazy Planet blog since the content on these is a bit crazy. Enjoy.

Whiteboard markers stink

June 5, 2008

Do you have a whiteboard in your office with whiteboard markers that stink and possibly make you nauseous? Most office workers are plagued by toxic fumes emanating from the stinky tips of whiteboard markers. Indeed that scent is most likely indicative of the harmful chemical, xylene, which diminishes Indoor Air Quality in classrooms and workspaces – noted for its detrimental effects on the brain. That’s not to mention the millions of disposable markers made with PVC cylinders that clog landfills each year.

Luckily, we don’t have to forego the markers for the whiteboard. In fact, there’s a refillable/100% recyclable alternative that’s non-toxic (no xylene here!) and fume free. AusPen whiteboard markers are also made using recycled aluminum, can go cap-free for 48 hours without drying out, and are said to work really well. And I believe that the AusPen from EcoSmart World is also dual tipped so it supposedly lasts twice as long. (Hmm…maybe I’ll get a pack and share)

What kinds of other consumer products may contain the chemical Xylene? Click the link to find out. 

Note: if you have xylene in your indoor air, then get a houseplant that’s specifically good at removing Xylene from the air such as an Areca Palm, a Dwarf date palm, or a Moth Orchid (Phalenopsis orchid. The ones with the leaves only at the base). 

Source of plant recommendations: The book “How to grow fresh air: 50 houseplants that purify your home or office”.


Artificial sweeteners

June 4, 2008

Artificial sweeteners are dangerous and in alot of products such as diet sodas and sugar substitutes. Examples of artificial sweeteners include Aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal, diet pepsi or diet coke, etc.), Splenda and Saccharin. Search the internet for info on the sweeteners you’re consuming.

“Info on toxicity of Aspartame has been suppressed for 20-30 years. It was developed in a program during WWII to create a neurotoxin to kill enemy soldiers. -aa”

“When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.) The methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis.”…..”If you are using ASPARTAME [NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.] and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss, you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!”

As for Saccharin:
“Many studies have since been performed on saccharin, some showing a correlation between saccharin consumption and increased frequency of cancer (especially bladder cancer)”.

For about 14 years (before the year 2000), products containing saccharin had to have this cancer warning on them:

“USE OF THIS PRODUCT MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH. THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS SACCHARIN WHICH HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO CAUSE CANCER IN LABORATORY ANIMALS.”

As for Splenda:
“Concerns have been raised about the effect of sucralose on the thymus, an organ that is important to the immune system. A report from NICNAS cites two studies on rats, both of which found “a significant decrease in mean thymus weight” at a certain dose.”

Alternative:

-Do not drink diet sodas or consume sugar substitutes.
-Use a natural sugar substitute such as stevia available in health food stores.
