Four Unsuspecting Foods that are packed with Estrogen that wreaks havoc in the Body

11 Apr

According to recent research: Flax, Soy, some legumes and certain animal products have an enormous amount of estrogen that may be the cause of an increase in intersex babies, feminization of men, prostate and breast cancers in men and women.
A paper which appeared in Science of the Total Environment examines the outbreak of precocious puberty and breast development of children in Italy and Puerto Rico in the late 1970s and 1980s and attributes the symptoms to zeranol-like “anabolic estrogens in animal foods.” In both occurrences, the symptoms disappeared when the hormone-laced food was removed. Zeranol is found in meat, eggs and dairy products “through deliberate introduction of zeranol into livestock to enhance meat production,” says the paper. It is “banned for use in animal husbandry in the European Union and other countries, but is still widely used in the US. Surprisingly, little is known about the health effects of these mycoestrogens, including their impact on puberty in girls, a period highly sensitive to estrogenic stimulation.”

What is the average person to do to eat safely and healthy. I think we can do three things which is within our power:
1. Eat non-gmo organic foods as much as possible
2. Eat foods that are grown locally as much as possible
3. Eat foods that have withstood the test of time and do not fall for fads like Quinoa, flax and all the so-called superfoods. There is really nothing super about them than super advertising.

Let me tell you did you know that the common beet is a superfood, onion is a superfood, garlic is a superfood? Superfoods are everywhere. Let’s stop the madness in this age of persuasion and let’s return to common sense.

Is ignorance bliss or deadly?

1 Nov

Researchers at the New England Journal of Medicine said that many brain abnormalities show no outward symptoms these may include silent strokes, aneurysm, benign tumours and that people may go through life without knowing.

  They wonder if ignorance is bliss. If people do not know then they will not worry about their condition.  However some researchers contend that it is better to know so that the problem can be addressed sooner than when it is too late.

They found that symptoms are seen quicker in older than younger people.

Dutch researchers used magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, to take a peek at the brains of 2,000 healthy individuals with an average age of 63.

What they found was that as many as 7 percent of the subjects had signs of stroke. Nearly 2 percent had a benign brain tumor, and nearly another 2 percent had a brain aneurysm.
