"Oxygen is everywhere—in the chinks between major enzyme conglomerates, at the head of the chain, and in the fluid on both sides of the membrane where transport molecules are carrying electrons to the chain. Some scientists isolate two spots as most perilous. One is the head of the chain, known as the Q reductase enzyme grouping, where carrier molecules first drop off loose electrons. Because this initial enzyme has the least electron hunger of any in the chain, oxygen can successfully compete for electrons before they get started down the chain."

"It is called the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and it influences the immune system, free radical defenses, and, some evidence indicates, DNA repair.86 Dr. Roy Walford, a researcher on aging at the University of California at Los Angeles, has shown that relative life span among different strains of mice is directly related to differences in the MHC.87 Diseases of aging, including senile dementia, are more likely when people have a particular type of MHC."

"Nearly 10% of the patients contracted a serious iatrogenic disease, defined as a disease that was life-threatening or that created a major disability. Two per cent of the patients, one in 50 hospital admissions in this study, died in situations caused or complicated by iatrogenic disease.1 BEYOND MEDICINE TO PREVENTION As I can tell you personally, statistics like these are deeply depressing to those in the medical profession."

"In fact, I firmly believe that if MAX were a drug, if it were the latest discovery from a major pharmaceutical company, it would be the most widely-publicized miracle cure in the medical world right now. Similarly, it seems to me that if Transcendental Meditation were a machine, an electromagnetic device that stabilized the autonomic nervous system in just 20 minutes twice a day—producing all the health benefits that Transcendental Meditation has demonstrated so far—millions of units would sell every year. What accounts for the delay in acceptance?"

"This task of differentiation and then integration is called a "fulcrum"—it just means a major turning point or a major step in development. So in column two [of figure 2], labeled "Corresponding Fulcrums," we have the nine major fulcrums or turning points that correspond to the nine major levels or stages of consciousness development. If anything goes persistently wrong at a given fulcrum, then you get a specific and characteristic pathology. These nine major pathologies are listed in column three, "Characteristic Pathologies."

"We hope you'll let it make a major difference in how joyfully you live. This is a book that will fill you with optimism because you'll discover—for the first time ever—exactly how to get in charge of your health to a degree you may have never thought possible. As strangely simple as it may seem, you truly can harness the "sunshine vitamin" D and enjoy amazing and far-reaching positive effects on your health! Many Americans today have numerous and expensive health problems, and so do our family members."

"Oz gave me the big picture on how excessive body fat can lead to diabetes. "The major task the body has to deal with is stress," he said. "Not just feeling stressed, but environmental stressors—toxins in our environment, foods that are toxic, emotional toxins, et cetera. A thousand years ago, the number-one stressor for the human body was famine. It wasn't deadlines or bad food; it was not having enough food. So the response that the body generates is something called the cannaboid receptors. Their nickname is the 'can't avoid' receptors."

"Include eight to ten exercises in each session that target major muscle groups. Before you get started, here are some basic guidelines to ensure your sessions are effective, safe, and fun. ?Talk to your doctor before starting strength training. This is especially critical if you have high blood pressure or any type of heart or blood vessel disease. ?Always warm up before doing strength training. Five to seven minutes of dynamic stretching and brisk walking can warm up your muscles. A five-minute cooldown that includes various stretching exercises is also recommended. ?"

"There are two major types of diabetes—type 1 (formerly called juvenile-onset diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes) and type 2 (formerly called adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes). (See "Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes," page 10.) Both are the result of a dysfunction in metabolism that causes abnormally high levels of glucose to accumulate in the bloodstream. In type 1 diabetes, which usually develops during childhood or early adolescence, the pancreas does not produce insulin. Therefore, those with the disease must take insulin every day for the rest of their lives."

"The process of glycation and the resulting production of cell-damaging substances called advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and advanced lipoxidation end products (ALEs), both of which are known collectively as glycotoxins, are a major focus of this book, and they are terms that will soon become very familiar to you. What is disturbing is that despite the very strong scientific evidence that glycation is a crucial factor in diabetes-related complications and premature aging, there is virtually no discussion of these factors in most publications on diabetes."

"A prospective study of Japanese men concluded that age of smoking initiation and number of cigarettes smoked were major risk factors for developing diabetes.78 Similarly, data from the U.S. Cancer Prevention Study found that as smoking increased so the rate of diabetes increased for both men and women.79 Nicotine has also been associated with decreasing peripheral circulation and thus increasing the tendency for amputation. Smoking increases adrenaline secretions by 23 percent and thus increases blood sugar."

"There are two major drawbacks to water distillers. One is that they are energy-intensive and expensive unless one has a solar water distiller. The other problem is that distilled water is dead, unstructured water so foreign to the body that one actually gets a temporarily high white blood cell count in response to drinking it. It is, however, possible to revive this dead, destructured water by the use of a product called Crystal Energy."

"Crib Shopping: The BFR Problem A crib is one of the first major purchases most of us make for our child—make sure you choose yours wisely. I recommend a crib constructed out of untreated wood, or wood with a natural finish. I would avoid bedding that has been treated with brominated flame retardants (BFRs), which are present in an alarmingly wide range of consumer products: TVs, computers, mattresses, carpets, kitchen appliances, paints, sheets, baby mattresses, and pajamas."

"Diabetes is already a major public health problem in Africa and its impact is bound to increase significantly if nothing is done to curb the rising rate of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), which now exceeds 16 percent in some countries.21 THE MIDDLE EAST In Israel, mostly among the large non-European immigrant population, the diabetes rate is already 7 percent of the population, with some 400,000 people diagnosed with diabetes."

"It is often a major contributor to inflammation, specifically if it is high in saturated fat and low in essential fatty acids. Childhood vaccinations. They can trigger inflammation, by creating subclinical chronic infection, and also by contributing to heavy metal overload. Stress. It contributes to inflammation by promoting production of pro-inflammatory immune system messengers, such as interleukin-6. These messengers create further inflammation, and this inflammation harms children with autism and ADHD."

"Vitamin D Helps Alot Research keeps unearthing one find after another that cites vitamin D deficiency as a major culprit in disease development. New studies show that vitamin D is important to proper brain development, and that a lack of this vitamin may be a contributing factor in causing schizophrenia, Parkinson's disease, and depression. Calcium and magnesium deficiencies often accompany vitamin D deficiency and are associated with seizures in infants and degenerative neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease in adults. The good news is that vitamin D ?"

"This difference is a major reason for African Americans' higher incidence of obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, gout, heart disease, systemic lupus, and cancer. You may be thinking, I just need to take this book to my doctor and ask for a prescription to move to Florida or Southern California so I can get enough sunshine. That's not the solution, and here's why: you have to live a lifestyle that lets you get outside to soak up sunlight. If your lifestyle doesn't allow that, you could live in Hawaii and be D-deficient."

"UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY Just as consuming organic foods is a way to avoid ingesting toxins, becoming aware of the quality of water one drinks and uses is increasingly essential in today's polluted world, since water can be a major source of toxins. According to Diet for a Poisoned Planet, less than 1 percent of the Earth's surface water is safe to drink. In some places in the United States and other countries, the term "drinking water" for tap water should be considered nothing more than a euphemism."

"It isn't controlling mercury coming from coal-fired power plants, which is one of the major sources. And we have to be aggressive in demanding that mercury be controlled, just as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are controlled. What we have now is not adequate. [The EPA's policy] needs to become much tighter, in order to protect kids' health." Consider this: In 2005, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report indicated that one out of seventeen women of child-bearing age has elevated blood mercury levels."

"Add to this picture the major role that your diet and acid-base balance play in regulating your immune response. Calcium and magnesium are permissive filters, and when levels of these are low, vitamin D has trouble doing its work of regulation and noise-filtering. You need good calcium and magnesium levels for vitamin D to help your immune response work right. Animals need normal magnesium levels to fight off infection successfully. Saturated fats stimulate your immune system, creating more inflammatory substances that raise the level of background noise, making it hard to hear the alarms."

"After nine months of treatment, his parents reported that he was doing "great," with major improvements in his speech, and much improved peer interaction. His stamina was now "excellent." His teacher's progress report also noted good improvement with gross motor skills, although he still had some mild problems with fine motor skills. His mother noted "progress, progress, progress." His final school reports were fantastic, noting "transformation, with incredible cognitive and academic success. He is now a class leader."

"Powerful voices in the scientific community, such as Sir Martin Rees, professor of astrophysics at the University of Cambridge, suggest that we have only a "50/50" chance of surviving the 21 st century without a major setback.9 While we've always had natural disasters to contend with, a new class of threats that Rees calls "human induced" now have to be taken into account as well."

"Within approximately one year, the child had major, positive improvements with decreased hyperactivity, the acquisition of age-appropriate language, and a new ability to express many more thoughts, feelings, and ideas. His mother reported, "It's amazing." His mood became much more stable, and his mother noted that he had become "much more of a normal kid." His marked improvements resulted in great benefit to his mother's overall stress level. At a follow-up visit he made good eye contact and responded conversationally to my questions."

"It's still common these days for most doctors to overlook these contributory problems, because each problem by itself is usually insufficient to cause a major malfunction of the brain. However, my training-even at this early stage of my investigation of autism-had left me reluctant to ignore even small, seemingly unrelated problems."

"Reporters from major national and international networks arrived at the store, and the parking lot was soon crowded with television trucks and their large satellite dishes anchored on top. The second cheese course was finished, but Freddie stayed with us for the next course. Yestermorrow students worked on the school-house porch and watched the goings on with increasing interest.

"It can result in dietary deficiencies in nutrients, such as calcium, and this can lead to degenerative diseases including osteoporosis. Two major types of lactose maldigestion can occur. At birth, the enzyme (3-galactosidase, more commonly known as lactase, is present in high quantities. Yet, as we become children and adolescents, the concentration of lactase in our digestive system decreases and we are less able to digest lactose. Non-Dairy Dietary Sources of Calcium Dairy is not the only source of calcium, despite misleading representations on North American Food Guides."

"Seven major groups of Rotaviruses have been identified, three of which infect humans. Rotaviruses cause vomiting and diarrhea. The virus infects the villi, which are small, finger-like projections on the small intestine. Rotavirus causes a change in the villi structure that results in diarrhea. It is the most common cause of severe diarrhea in children, killing about 600,000 children every year in developing countries. The incubation period ranges from one to three days. Symptoms often start with vomiting followed by four to eight days of diarrhea."

"This is a major problem in elderly people and can lead to serious diarrhea and at times death. Probiotics for Prevention of Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea It is wonderful that probiotics can help alleviate antibiotic-associated diarrhea; however, can probiotics prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhea? Yes, they can. In 2002, a group of scientists reviewed all of the research available on the ability of probiotics to prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhea. This type of review is called a meta-analysis."

"More recently, Silent Inflammation Starts Early researchers specializing in the study of early-onset atherosclerosis reported in the medical journal Circulation that 20 to 25 percent of young people (aged fourteen to thirty-five) autopsied after death from homicide, auto accident, or suicide already had a major lesion in the coronary arteries. The study was performed on three thousand bodies. • Just over 3 percent of men aged fifteen to nineteen had 40 percent narrowing or greater in at least one coronary vessel."

"Arterial Hot Spots Aorta The major cardiac hot spots are the left main coronary artery—the "left main" for short—and locations just beyond where it splits into the left anterior descending and left circumflex arteries on the outer surface of the heart. These blood vessels supply the front and side walls of the heart muscle. The higher up in these vessels that blockages develop, the more damage that occurs "downstream." The left anterior descending artery is the potential site of the most dangerous lesion. We call it the "widow maker." It puts two-thirds of the heart muscle in jeopardy."
