"Caution: lead Contamination Whenever considering supplementation of calcium products, it is important to examine the lead content. lead contamination is widespread. Exposure to lead and other heavy metals- contributes to intracellular accumulation of calcium where it does not belong. Bone meal has reputation for lead contamination and it can also happen with MCHC so be sure that the brands you select are from a reputable manufacturer and that the product has been analyzed for lead content. Look for lead concentrations less than 2 parts per million."

"Environmental sources of lead include tap water (many older plumbing systems use lead-soldered pipes), lead-soldered cans (once they're opened, lead immediately begins to leach into the can's contents), lead-based paint (although banned in the 1980s, this type of paint is still out there), crystal (fine crystal may contain up to 30-percent lead oxide), and some ceramic and earthenware containers (many are decorated with colorful lead-based er aging factor. AGEs are formed when proteins in the body react with excess glucose, or blood sugar, your body's primary energy source."

"Why lead? It's cheap, and a small amount raises significantly the octane level of gasoline. The only problem with lead is that it polluted the environment. Hello, unleaded gasoline. Use of unleaded gasoline should leave our air fresher, but at a cost. After the introduction of low-lead and unleaded gasoline, many customers were incensed that they were charged more for an ingredient being taken out of a product. This is one case, however, where the retailer actually is passing along higher costs to the consumer."

"The chain, then, looks like this: various stressors on the body can lead to impaired thyroid hormone system (and under-production of T3), which can lead to low body temperature, which can lead to impaired enzyme performance, which can lead to impaired metabolism, which can lead to the host of symptoms listed above, if the body stays in the conservation mode for an extended period of time. "When the stressful conditions have passed," explains Dr."

"From these studies it states that: • Even a mild deficiency of choline produces cancer of the liver; • vitamin E deficiency increases the risk of leukemia; • iodine deficiency leads to cancer of the thyroid; • deficiencies of various B vitamins result in liver damage, as well as cancers; • deficiencies in zinc lead to cancer of the prostate; • vitamin A deficiencies lead to tumor developments; • and on, and on, and on. 3. Electromagnetic Chaos. The next cause of all cancers is electromagnetic chaos."

"While some researchers question the lactose-ovarian cancer link, science has generally confirmed that animal fat, including the high fat content of whole milk, may lead to an in- tudies show that the milk sugar lactose aid in mineral absorption, and that includes one element no one wants—lead. Weanling rats given normal doses of lactose had increased levels of lead in their tissues. As lactose levels were increased, lead levels increased also. Even moderately elevated lead concentrations in tissues have been linked to learning disabilities and other serious problems in children and adults."

"We do not choose a level at which 20 percent of our children will develop lead-induced brain disease from lead in the water. We choose a level that ensures the safety of everyone. So why is the policy so different when it comes to levels of cholesterol in the blood? The answer lies in a complex blend of culture, habit, taste, real-politik, and other factors—including, frankly, a somewhat condescending attitude among medical experts toward the lay public. Let's look at the facts."
- Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease (Get the book.)

"Whenever possible, avoid foods in lead-soldered cans, since the food absorbs lead from the solder. The FDA has estimated that approximately 20 percent of the lead found in the average person's diet comes from carmed foods. Lead-soldered cans can increase the amount of lead in caimed food by 200 to 300 percent. Furthermore, the contamination is signif- icantly inaeased if the food is stored ui the can after opening."
- Debra Lynn Dadd, Nontoxic & Natural: how to avoid dangerous everyday products and buy or make safe ones (Get the book.)

"Acidic foods such as orange and other fruit juices, tomatoes and tomato paste, and most ftuits absorb the lead especially quickly and should be transferred to a nonmetal container before any continued storage. Some foods are now canned in lead-free welded or one-piece aluminum cans. When you first start looking for lead-free cans, they all may look alike to you—probably because most of them will be lead-soldered. But once you come across a lead-free can, you will recognize it without a doubt."

"Adverse effects from lead can occur at very low levels. Early symptoms of lead poisoning—such as nervousness, irritability, headaches, fatigue, muscular problems, constipation, and indigestion—are hard to pinpoint as lead-related. One way to reduce the risk of lead poisoning is to run your tap in the morning to flush out the contaminated water. Avoid drinking tap water that has been sitting in the plumbing for a few hours, and don't cook with or drink water from the hot-water tap because hot water can dissolve lead more quickly."

"Nationwide, drinking water is responsible for 20 percent of all lead contamination. Adverse effects from lead can occur at very low levels.

This is one case, however, where the retailer actually is passing along higher costs to the consumer. In order to retain the same octane rating, oil companies were required to supply a better quality gasoline."

"Over the past few years, many radiologists and emergency room physicians have grown increasingly concerned that one day we are going to wake up and discover that the millions of radiological tests patients undergo today will lead to thousands of cases of cancer tomorrow. With the exception of MRI and ultrasound, all imaging tests involve radiation—surprisingly high levels of radiation, in fact, depending upon what kind of scan it is."

"Similarly, recreational activities with your own friends are great but can lead to your being caught in a social situation where you're under pressure to continue when you really ought to stop. Simply being aware that you're embarking on an activity where the exact energy expenditure is unknown may allow you to budget better for the rest of your daily activities, and to back off if necessary. Both of these put you in control. Remember Ms. Laurelton? Hers was an extreme example of overload, one she brought about all by herself. And it produced the "yo-yo effect plus."

"Lead is a highly toxic and cumulative poison. lead poisoning can cause severe mental retardation or death. It is now known that lead interferes with the blood-forming process, vitamin D metabolism, kidney function, and the neurological process. From the standpoint of lead alone, sludge is 'safe' only if you are willing to accept a lowered IQ for the young children living in the sludge area. And what about the other toxins?"31 Tackett is appalled "that the government would take the citizens' money and use it in such an odious way."

"The complete lack of overlap of serum antibodies of these two populations lead to some very productive studies in understanding the relationship of cow's milk intake and incidence of juvenile diabetes. One study in Chile25 found that genetically susceptible children who were weaned too early onto cow's milk?before three months of age—had a risk factor for juvenile diabetes of 13.1 times greater than children who did not have a genetic proclivity, or who were breastfed for at least three months. Another significant study in the U.S."

"Repeated insulin resistance physiologies, due to additional pregnancies, lead to an increase in the rate of developing Type-2 diabetes later. The relative risk for Type-2 diabetes was 1.95 for each 10 pounds gained during pregnancy. This is also associated with greater risk for developing hypertension, hyper-lipidemia, EKG changes, and mortality.135 Women with gestational diabetes (GDM) had higher triglycerides and fatty acids, beta hydroxy butyrate, and LDL, and lower HDL cholesterol than normals. Their offspring have an increased rate of perinatal mortality and morbidity."

"It seems likely that a diet made up of higher-SI foods would likely lead to less hunger and a lower calorie intake. High-fructose corn syrup is a concern because it brings high amounts of sugar into the system, but does not activate a feeling of being satiated; thus people are more likely to keep eating. The high-fructose corn syrup sweeteners that have been implicated in the epidemic of obesity is an interesting example of a low-SI food, as it does not turn on the natural satiety response."

"The problem with cancer patients is that, terrified by the diagnosis, they submit their bodies to these cutting/burning/poisoning procedures that, more likely than not, will lead them more rapidly to the day of final sentencing: "We have to tell you with our deepest regret that there is nothing more that can be done to help you." The most pressing question is not, "How advanced or dangerous is my cancer?" but, "What am doing or not doing that puts my body into a situation of having to fight for its life?" Why do some people go through cancer as if it were the flu?"

"It's those skipped measurements that can lead to backsliding. Have fun. If you overeat on an occasion, let it go. Start off again on the right foot immediately and get back to moderation. Lighten up—in mind and body—and enjoy the success you've achieved. Travel Tips Travel can mean changes in your eating schedule and challenges that differ from your routine ones.

"Growth industry Medicine itself was also setting out on a new course, one that would lead to the dramatic expansion of the health care industry, to more cases like Orabilex, and to many of the problems that would reach crisis proportions by the turn of the next century. In 1965, Congress passed the Medicare Act, which for the first time provided the elderly with free hospital insurance and coverage for physicians' fees."

"Or the wandering spirit of an enemy shaman may engage him in battle or else lead him astray. It. is said that there have been many shamans who failed to return. (E. J. Jessen, Afhandling om de Norske Finners og Lappers Hedenske Religion, p. 31. This work is included in Leem's volume, op. cit., as an shaman slowly awakes, declaring both the cause of the illness and the manner of sacrifice to be made. Then he announces the length of time it will take for the patient to grow well."

"In running down these questions, it became clear to me that the lack of rigorous science and evidence was just one of many factors that lead physicians and hospitals to deliver care that doesn't improve health. I also discovered along the way that most of the solutions to our various health care crises—consumer-driven care, malpractice reform, universal coverage, pay for performance, electronic medical records—only nibble around the edges of fixing the system. None of them can remedy the poor quality of American health care unless we simultaneously address the issue of overtreatment."

"Missing an appy can mean a burst appendix, which can lead to all sorts of nasty complications, even death. Yet doctors don't want to send a patient off to an unnecessary, or "negative," appendectomy. For one thing, they might get an earful from a cranky surgeon who has just opened a patient and found nothing wrong. For another, unnecessary abdominal surgery is not something any physician wants a patient to undergo. An appendectomy means spending an average of more than three days in the hospital at a cost of nearly eleven thousand dollars, whether or not your appendix needed to come out."

"A cancerous tumor is neither the cause of progressive destruction nor does it actually lead to the death of the body. There is nothing in a cancer cell that even remotely has the ability to kill anything. If you asked people walking in the street if they knew how cancer kills people you would probably not get one definite, correct answer. Ask the same question to doctors, you may not get a much better result. You will unlikely hear that cancer doesn't kill anyone."

"Microwave usage in the preparation of food has been found to lead to lymphatic disorders and an inability to protect the body against certain cancers. The research found increased rates of cancer cell formation in the blood of people eating microwave-cooked meals. The Russians also reported increased rates of stomach and intestinal cancers, as well as digestive and excretive disorders, plus a higher percentage of cell tumors, including sarcoma. Microwaves rip apart the molecular bonds that make food to be "food."
