"Soy products that contain phytoestrogens are probably better than hormone supplements, he said. Some researchers speculate that they may impart many of the benefits of estrogen without the cancer dangers. Okinawans eat an average of three ounces of soy products per day. Tofu, their main source of soy, may play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease. Greg Plotnikoff recommended that consumers select fermented soy products over nonfermented soy products whenever possible. "The medical literature demonstrates comparatively much better nutritional content in fermented soy," he said. "

"Many exciting new products are available to treat diabetes. One is: Alpha Lipoic Acid Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant. Alpha lipoic acid can get rid of both fat and water soluble free radicals, which is unique among antioxidants. ALA has the capability of prolonging and increasing the action of both Vitamin E and Vitamin C. Additionally, ALA by elevating glutathione recycles Vitamin E. Low levels of glutathione, are believed to permit more oxidative damage to cells resulting in neuropathy, inflammation, and damage to organs."

"Benzene's usefulness as a starting material for dyes and other products was not its only potentially valuable application. All the aromatics, as a class, can act as useful chemical solvents. Although many aromatic chemicals were being isolated at the time, such as xylene and toluene, benzene still seemed to be one of the most effective solvents of the group. Nonetheless, despite its solvent potency, benzene was too precious to use for that purpose in the early years following its first isolation. All of the benzene available from coal tar extraction was required for aniline manufacture."

"The general public, who were the ultimate consumers of animal-derived glues, may have found the factories a nuisance because of the smells emitted, but they used the products without incident. For most of history, old-fashioned good glue has been synonymous with animal-derived materials extracted by slow cooking, without too much attention to other details. For this very reason, through all those many generations of glue making, glue has been an exceedingly safe material. The nontoxic common denominator of animal glues is a natural material called collagen."

"The operative principle is the same: take animal products and cook them down until sticky. For the next thousand years or so, as it had been for several millennia of human craftsmanship before Rugerus, not much was to change. True, by the nineteenth century glue making had become industrialized, but the underlying concept remained the same. As an early Victorian occupational health text noted, Glue and size boilers are exposed to strong putrid and ammoniacal exhalations from the decomposition of animal refuse."

"In 1991, the Public Interest Research Group called on the CPSC to crack down on improper labeling of arts and crafts supplies, including glues, when it found that 44 percent of the products it surveyed carried insufficient warnings. " 'Our compliance people will take a look at it,' replied a CPSC spokesperson."62 In 2001, the CPSC did announce the voluntary recall of ninety thousand packages of "super contact adhesive" containing toluene for failing to have the required cautionary labels, one of its few recent actions in this area."

"Avoid all use of white (refined) sugar, white flour and white rice, which are artificial products. After refining, sugar has pharmacologic properties and is no longer a food. The refining process greatly accelerates the movement of sugar into the blood stream by removing the fiber from the sugar cane. The body responds to this rapid rise in blood sugar by rapidly releasing large amounts of insulin into the blood to correct the sudden high sugar levels. This causes artery damage, high cholesterol and weight gain, secondary to depositing fat."

"Citizens of developing countries were victims of America's own double standard: they were the market for America's forbidden products because their governments' environmental standards were far weaker than those in the United States. I never imagined that a quarter century later the effect of the U.S. government's withdrawal from serious environmental oversight would be to place Americans at the lower end of another double standard: that between the protections offered to Americans and those offered to their counterparts in Europe and elsewhere in the world."

"What Sunscreens Do Sunscreens act by absorbing short-wave ultraviolet light, or UVB, the wavelength responsible for sunburn. To gauge how much protection each sunscreen product affords you against burns, a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) was created in 1962 as an international standard, and embraced by sunscreen makers and the regulatory and health agencies of most governments. The higher the SPF number on the label, the higher the level of protection is the product theoretically affords."

"Taylor's criticisms were strongly supported by activist groups, notably the Consumers Union and the Organic Consumers Association. The FDA issued a statement in 2007 that it would not require any special labeling or regulations for nanoparticles added to cosmetics because, the agency claimed, there was no scientific evidence of any major safety risks. But to the contrary, there is now more than enough evidence to demonstrate that nanoparticles pose serious and irreversible health hazards."

"Rule out foods that include egg whites, egg yolks, or albumin, and read labels carefully to find these hidden sources of egg products: Globulin egg lysozyme ovomucoid ovovitellin livetin ovoglobulin ovotransferrin vitellin Try tofu instead of eggs—it offers the equivalent in protein, without the mucus. 2.

"Chapter Four: You Lost Your "Right To Know" "The cosmetics industry has borrowed a page from the playbook of the tobacco industry by putting profits ahead of public health." -Sen. Edward Kennedy, September 10,1997,at Senate hearings on the FDA Reform Bill More than three decades ago, consumer advocate Ralph Nader made one of the first public declarations about how thoroughly the cosmetics safety deck is stacked in favor of manufacturers and against the buying public. "The FDA claims to see great advantages in voluntary [industry] actions ?"

"I will absolutely tell you what my opinions are regarding whether or not I believe that these products can prevent, treat, or cure disease. This is very important for you to understand. If I sold a product or had any financial interest in the product for which I claimed could prevent, treat, or cure a disease I would be breaking the law. I could be charged criminally and imprisoned! For example, there is a company called "The Amazon Herb Company." Their website is www.amazonherb.net. Their phone number is (800) 835-0850. They sell a whole line of all-natural herbs from the Amazon."

"And the absurdity of the "protection" companies receive from trade secrecy laws comes into sharper focus when you realize that most product competitors have the technical expertise to back-engineer product ingredients created by their rivals ?which means that it is really only consumers who are being kept in the dark about the identity of product ingredients. A more subtle layer of public deception that shields dangerous chemicals from scrutiny is the result of the intimidation tactics sometimes used against experts who go public about health hazards."

"Some of those engineers in Silicon Valley would finally follow Kirschener's advice and take the toxics out of their products. Americans who purchased them would thus find themselves protected by the EU, filling in the vacuum left by the absence of their own government. In this way, Americans are the beneficiaries of market forces emanating from a continent that most will likely never visit, much less learn any of the languages spoken there. In many other instances, however, the results are far more troubling."

"Milk products, because they are so rich in protein, often cause greater calcium loss than gain, i.e. negative calcium balance, when taken in excessive amounts. Birth Control Pills These pills produce folic acid deficiency. Where there is a lack of folic acid homocysteine blood levels rise and this is associated with osteoporosis. Excessive Salt Intake When too much salt is taken in, there is an increase in calcium loss in the urine. Fluoride produces abnormal bone, which is more likely to break. Osteoporex Osteoporex was developed by Dr.Brazzach, at the University of Sao Paolo, Brazil."

"Chinese consumers. There are some distinctions between the Chinese and European controls: the Europeans rely on companies to declare their RoHS compliance, and then penalize violators; the Chinese require that testing be conducted in Chinese labs before manufacturers are given a certificate of compliance. Maximum acceptable levels for the six substances are fixed at the same level in China and in Europe, ranging from 0.1 percent to 0.01 percent of each substance, depending on where in the product they are found, and their potential for migrating out."

"In Europe today we are seeing a focal point of regulatory action other than the United States that, for the first time in the postwar period, is driving world markets," comments David Wirth, a trade-law specialist and director of international programs at Boston College Law School.8 Wirth served in the State Department in the 1980s, where he helped negotiate the Montreal Protocol, a global treaty aimed at protecting the ozone layer."

"I are already seeing great changes in our health in just 4 months. I have always believed that nutrition plays a big role on your well-being, and Kevin just confirmed it for me. Thank you so much for writing the book and putting the knowledge out there. I tell all my friends and family to read the book. Good Luck Bruni W., Norwich, Connecticut When I read Kevin's book, it changed my life forever. I learned so much. After I read the book, I went through my kitchen cupboards and discarded everything that was bad for me and replaced them with whole and organic foods."

"So the number one reason you have cancer is the toxins that are purposely being put in our food, our water, our air, our cosmetics, soaps, and cleaning supplies that all wind up in our bodies. 2. Nutritional Deficiencies. The second cause of all cancers is nutritional deficiencies. Even the U.S. Government states that at least one-half of all Americans suffer from varying degrees of nutritional deficiencies."

"Cultured products are preferred because they have less lactose and have greater absorbability. They promote proper flora in the gut. This helps breakdown the lactate in dairy products. Of course, many people cannot tolerate milk products at all. Because of our highly acidic diet (caused by phosphorus, protein and sugar), higher doses of calcium (800 to 1,500 mg) are needed daily. It may be difficult to obtain this amount of calcium without the use of dairy products (or usable supplements such as MCHC). Of course, dairy products are also high in protein so it is like a double-edge sword."

"There is a some suspicion that aluminum is the cause of Alzheimer's Disease (See Chapter 26 on Dementia in the Elderly). How Does The Commercial Oil Industry Manufacture The Fats We Eat? The natural soybean, cottonseed, sunflower seed, canola, and peanut seed is washed then crushed and heated to 248 degrees to break up the cell wall facilitating the extraction of the oil. Living enzymes are destroyed by temperature over 110 degrees. The dead mash of cooked seeds is then forced through a giant press which exerts up to several tons per square inch of pressure."

"Dairy products, liver, meat, chicken, fish, oysters, green leafy vegetables and wholemeal bread all contain zinc, although much is lost if food is processed. Seaweed or kelp Seaweed is a special food, for it contains a wide range of valuable minerals. Particularly high in calcium, iodine, zinc, potassium, magnesium and selenium, seaweed is also very rich in Vitamin C?an additional bonus for someone with asthma. Seaweed stimulates the immune system and in the past folk medicine used it to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal problems."

"They aid the body in purifying the blood, help in neutralising waste products, assist in building new tissue and have a revitalising and rejuvenating effect on the body's organs and glands. Raw fruit and vegetables have a particularly high Vitamin C content, which oxygenates the blood, destroys foreign bacteria, clears cholesterol, builds resistance to disease, speeds up the healing process and is a powerful boost to the immune system. High doses of Vitamin C protect us against the common cold, asthma and respiratory conditions."

"Bargain' products should be considered with caution. There is usually a reason why they are so cheap—they are not ultimately a bargain if quality is lacking. Rely on reputable brands and take advice from registered practitioners with approved qualifications. When you begin to introduce supplements to your diet, ensure you also drink a litre or more of water a day. This will maintain adequate kidney function."

- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"Asthma can be triggered by eating nuts like peanuts, cashews or walnuts, and dairy produce, eggs and yeast products. Fish, especially seafood, tomatoes and spices are also known triggers for some people. Anything manufactured that contains additives is of course suspect: biscuits, potato chips, cakes, aerated drinks, cordials and ice cream may all cause asthma. You can probably add your own triggers to this list."
