"Grass-fed means that the animals you eat spend their lives roaming and eating grass in a pasture, as they evolved doing. Grass-fed animals are not closed up in a stockyard, which means they have much less need for antibiotics. In addition, they move and eat a healthier, more natural diet, which means they are leaner. And they eat grass, which leads to higher amounts of omega-3 fats, vitamins, and minerals in the meat than grain-fed animals. When Should I Eat?"

"These findings are fully compatible with experimental studies of animals, and now of humans too. animals stroked lovingly on their bellies over a stretch of days come to have higher oxytocin and lower blood pressure compared with untouched animals.34 So do husbands and wives whose spouses have learned how to touch their partners' head, neck, and shoulders in loving ways.35 Through frequent close body contact, then, love literally gets under your skin, making you healthier. What I love about Kathy Light's findings about hugs is that they mirror the build effect of positivity."

"In addition, pollutants and pesticides in the animals' food supply (which then becomes stored in the animals' fat) might trigger breast cancer. 2. Women who eat high-fat foods tend to be overweight, and overweight women produce more estrogen and have a higher rate of breast cancer. So is it what's in the fat or what the fat does? Fat is active. It is constantly producing hormones and inflammatory proteins. Unfortunately, fat tends to make estrone, and a form of estrogen, which is associated with breast cancer. 3. The way you cook your meat plays a role, too."

The Importance of Meal Timing Controlling insulin and balancing your blood sugar are critical for balancing your mood, focusing, having energy, and preventing all the age-related brain diseases such as Alzheimer's. It is not very hard."

"For already there is one method of dramatically extending lives in lab animals: Undernutrition, or feeding the animals half as much as they would like to eat, at every meal. This is not starvation, though, because the researchers use supernutritious food and are careful to supply all necessary nutrients. As a result, over the years, scientists have found that mice that were supposed to live 14 months, for example, went on to live for four years after being put on an undernutrition-without-malnutrition diet."

"I love my animals and taking care of them. We don't really need the cow that I butchered today. Half of the meat will go to my son, and most of the other half we'll share with our neighbors. But without the animals and the work it takes to raise them, I would be sitting in my house doing nothing; I would have little purpose in life. When I think of them, I think of my children. I like it when my kids come home and they find something here that I have produced." THE POWER OF LOVING?"

"And further, he found that the organisms that cause tuberculosis could be grown in culture, produce disease when injected into laboratory animals, be extracted from these infected animals, and be grown again in culture. These four steps, known as "Koch's postulates," became accepted as proof that a specific organism was the cause of a specific disease. Using these postulates, Koch went on to identify the microorganisms that cause cholera, typhoid, and diphtheria."

"SEVEN The Pe rsuaders The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals. —Sir William Osier On March 14, 2001, twenty-year-old Justin Cheslek was found hanging from the balcony of his apartment. A sophomore at the University of Southern Mississippi, Justin had been a good student, a soccer player and an avid kayaker, and full of excitement on the phone to his parents just three weeks earlier, when he called to tell them about an independent study class he was taking in computer-network management."

"Quale Ourtane, recalls her attempts to become various animals. In an interview with The Lucid Dream Exchange, she recounts a lucid dream in which she intended to "change into" a bird: I tried to change myself into a bird to see what that feels like. Sure enough, I felt my body change, felt I had a tail and a beak. The eyesight also changed, like very wide vision that came together in the middle. Shortly after that I tried to lay an egg to see what that feels like, it was actually quite pleasurable; [my] realization: of course it is [pleasurable], nature wouldn't make it unpleasurable."

"Along with food, she showered her doctors and their staffs with trinkets— pens, sticky notepads, paperweights, tissue dispensers, baseball caps, and stuffed animals for doctors' children, all emblazoned with the name of her drug. Gifts are a critical selling tool for all drug reps."

"Some of this very recent, emerging research has only been done on animals, not humans. With only one or two noted exceptions, the scientific research that inspired the original SuperFoodsRx and SuperFoodsRx HealthStyle was derived primarily from studies on humans in clinical trials. As you might imagine, it's quite a challenge for scientists to design a strong double-blind study on humans that would focus on a particular nutrient. It's complicated and, in some cases, irresponsible, to manipulate the diets of real people so as to exclude important nutrients."

"Additional research in animals and humans has shown that higher-calcium diets promote fat breakdown, inhibit the creation of new fat cells and fat storage, and may even preserve metabolism during calorie-reduced diets, which could potentially speed up weight and fat loss.25 Why would calcium have such an effect on weight? One possible reason is the relationship between calcium and your body's energy metabolism. Low calcium levels stimulate production of a hormone—parathyroid hormone or PTH."

"During the Asian tsunami crisis in December 2004, news agencies reported a compelling phenomenon: the wild and domestic animals in Sumatra fled to the mountains in the hours before the tsunami struck. They knew, through their ability to tune in to electromagnetic energy patterns, about the oncoming devastation. If only the human inhabitants of Sumatra could have known how to do the same thing. Of course, human beings can tune in to electromagnetic energies, and we have the mental power to manage this energy to some degree."

"Then there sprang into being the grasses and trees, birds and animals, and the generations of the snakes and insects, and fishes and turtles. The Wood Prince and the Metal Mother brought light and darkness together and thereby created the human race, as man and woman. Thus gradually appeared the world. . . ,"26 24 See The Vedantasara of Sadananda, translated with Introduction, Sanskrit Text, and Comments, by Swami Nikhilananda (Mayavati, 1931). 25 The five elements according to the Chinese system are earth, fire, water, wood, and gold."

"Both groups swam at the same rate, but the exercised animals made a beeline for the platform, while the sedentary ones floundered about before figuring it out. When the mice were dissected, the active mice had twice as many new stem cells in the hippocampus as the inactive ones. Speaking generally about what they found, Gage says: "There is a significant correlation between the total number of cells and [a mouse's] ability to perform a complex task. And if you block neurogenesis, mice can't recall information."

"Environmental estrogen, or xenoestrogen (pronounced "ZEE-no-estrogen"), can be found in pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, plastics, fuels, car exhausts, dry cleaning chemicals, industrial waste, and meat from animals that have been fed estrogenic drugs to fatten them. It is also found in the synthetic estrogen and progesterone (chemically termed progestin) of birth control pills and hormone therapies; these synthetic hormones are secreted in women's urine, are flushed down the toilet, and eventually make their way back into the food chain."

"Sages, with craggy bodies but spirits eternally young, meditate among these peaks, or ride curious, symbolic animals across immortal tides, or converse delightfully over teacups to the flute of Lan Ts'ai-ho. The mistress of the earthly paradise of the Chinese immortals is the fairy goddess Hsi Wang Mu, "The Golden Mother of the Tortoise." She dwells in a palace on the K'un-lun Mountain, which is surrounded by fragrant flowers, battlements of jewels, and a garden wall of gold.127 She is formed of the pure quintessence of the western air."

"Simply being able to make sounds is not enough; most animals do that very well. Nor is the possession of a larynx, or "voice box," sufficient; the great apes have well-developed larynxes. What makes the human larynx different are some important changes that it undergoes early in life. At birth, the human larynx, like that of the apes, is high in the throat. In a child's first year, its speech is restricted and the sounds it makes are reminiscent of those made by young chimpanzees. But during the second year, the larynx moves to a lower position, carrying the base of the tongue with it."

"And I had the sensation, as I remember it now, of small animals seeing me from inside the woods, winking at me as I drove." Eleven FOUNDATIONAL HEALING MODALITIES Zillions of snowflakes have fallen today for a late season snowstorm, accumulating at least two feet of the tiny white bits of frozen water. Every single one of them is unique, no two alike. If it had been warmer it would have been rain. Does that mean every raindrop is unique and different from the next or is that only when they crystallize? The wind has picked up now, and mini tornados of snowflakes are swirling across the field."

"Apparently the most permanent of the dispositions of the human psyche are those that derive from the fact that, of all animals, we remain the longest at the mother breast. Human beings are born too soon; they are unfinished, unready as yet to meet the world. Consequently their whole defense from a universe of dangers is the mother, under whose protection the intra-uterine period is prolonged.2 Hence the dependent child and its mother constitute for months after the catastrophe of birth a dual unit, not only physically but also psychologically."

"He taught his tribes how to fish with nets, to hunt and to rear domestic animals, divided the people into clans, and instituted matrimony. From a supernatural tablet entrusted to him by a horse-shaped scaly monster out of the waters of the river Meng, he deduced the Eight Diagrams, which remain to this day the fundamental symbols of traditional Chinese thought. He had been born of a miraculous conception, after a gestation of twelve years; his body being that of a serpent, with human arms and the head of an ox.1 Shen Nung, his successor, the "Earthly Emperor" (2838-2698 b.c."

"Calcium D-glucarate has been found to lower unhealthy-estrogen levels in animals and thereby inhibit the development or progression of cancer. ţ TAKE 1,000 MG OF CALCIUM D-GLUCARATE TWICE DAILY. Diindolylmethane (DIM) Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a phytonutrient akin to the indole-3-carbinol (I3C) found in cruciferous vegetables. DIM has unique hormonal benefits. It supports the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism by increasing the levels of 2-hydroxyestrone—that is, the good estrogen."

"In such animals optimal dietary ratios of calcium to phosphorus approach 1.0. This has led to a popular theory that, because calcium:phosphorus ratios in human diets typically are well below 1.0, phosphorus overconsumption initiates a similar process in humans."

"When the experimental drug moved from being tested in animals to its first trials in humans, which are known as Phase I studies, the company should start paying for meetings at which the experimental drug can be promoted to certain physicians. At this time, even though the drug is still years away from approval, the company should begin paying as well to have articles written and published in medical journals that supported the drug's use. Ethical Strategies also suggested the company prepare its media strategy during this period to "seed market with preclinical information."

"With the vultures no longer around to eat dead animals, the South Asians found that the population of wild dogs increased, leading to a risk that more humans could be infected with rabies. There was also a fear that the rat population would rise, bringing a heightened threat of the diseases spread by rodents, including the bubonic plague. Despite the risks of these ecological disasters, the United States does not regulate the amount of pharmaceuticals that can be released into rivers and lakes, a fact that scientists are beginning to question as Americans take ever more pills."

"Merrell, the American company, had not yet finished testing thalidomide in animals when it armed its sales representatives with samples and told them to have doctors try it on their patients. Merrell had explained that the doctors would be part of "a trial" of thalidomide. Actually, the "trial" was later revealed to be more about promoting the sleeping pill than about gathering scientific information. For one thing, the company's marketing department was in charge of it."

"Plants capture this energy through photosynthesis and pass it on up the food chain to animals. This is how we get the energy we require to walk, talk, and plant the crops that catch the sunlight. By burning wood, we created another means of liberating the energy stored up by plants. We could warm ourselves when the sun was down; we could survive cooler winters; we could move into new territories. Cooking food expanded our diets. Smelting metals allowed us to make more sturdy tools."
