"Still unpublished 1987 Monsanto tests, disclosed by FDA in summary form in 1990, revealed that statistically significant growth stimulating effects were induced in organs of adult rats by feeding IGF-1 at low dose levels for only two weeks. drinking rBGH milk would thus be expected to significantly increase IGF-1 blood levels and consequently to increase risks of developing breast cancer and promoting its invasiveness."

"The whole question of the extra amount of IGF-1 in blood from drinking this milk has never been evaluated." NOTE In an attempt at damage control, on 2/7/96 the Dairy Coalition met with Manning's editor who assured that "any future stories dealing with rBGH and health would be closely scrutinized." A New Study Warns Of Breast Cancer And Colon Cancer Risks From rBGH Milk Press Conference January 23,1996 Washington, D.CŚ The Cancer Prevention Coalition and Food & Water, today released a new study by Dr."

"On the other hand, Monsanto Corporation lists 21 possible harmful side effects rBGH may have on cows, and consumer groups, such as the Cancer Prevention Coalition, quote studies showing that drinking milk from rBGH-injected cows causes elevated levels of an insulin-like growth factor in humans which may stimulate growth of tumors, such as breast and colon cancer. What's a layperson to make of this confusing data, especially if she's old enough to recall the days when DDT was safe, radioactive wastes were no problem, and cigarettes didn't cause cancer?"

"Based on conservative assumptions, infants drinking rBGH milk would be exposed to levels of IGF-1 substantially in excess of recommended safety margins derived from 1988 Monsanto oral toxicity tests published in summary form by FDA (Juskevich & Geyer) in 1990. Lasmezas et al, Biochem, Biophys. Res. Comm., 196:1163-1169, 1993 IGF-1 induced a dose-dependent increased expression of the protein prion gene (PrP) in cultured rat neuroblastoma (PC12) cells. PrP is "a housekeeping gene which is responsible for susceptibility to transmissible spongiform encephalopathies."

"Although consciously they might wish for their loved ones to recover, they might actually wish for them to carry on drinking, if the person praying is a fellow drinker and does not wish to lose a drinking buddy. Or perhaps the boorish, selfish behavior of an alcoholic has so hurt the relatives that they unconsciously wish for the alcoholic to die. All these studies are small, but they carry a huge implication: even your current state of mind carries an intention that has an effect on life around you."

"You have to stop drinking caffeinated beverages after one in the afternoon to avoid these negative effects, especially if you are sensitive to caffeine. So if you have trouble sleeping, your first course of action is to stop smoking and stop drinking alcohol and caffeinated drinks. What should people with medically unexplained fatigue or pain do about smoking, alcohol, and caffeine? They too should stop using these drugs. Besides all its other health risks, nicotine is associated with fatigue. To stop using it is a no brainer."

"The Safe drinking Water Act The Safe drinking Water Act (sdwa, 1974) sets safe levels for toxic substances in drinking water. For general information, contact the epa Safe drinking Water Hotline at 800/426-4791 (9:00-5:30 est, Mon.-Fri.).

"In addition, infection can occur after drinking raw milk and after swimming in or drinking sewage-contaminated water. Based on a 1999 estimate, 73,000 cases of infection and 61 deaths occur in the United States each year. Infection with E. coli often leads to bloody diarrhea and occasionally to kidney failure. Once digested, E. coli attaches to the host epithelial cells and causes detrimental changes to them. Probiotics can positively change the cells that line the intestines so that bad bacteria such as E. coli cannot live there."

"Reductions in environmental lead exposure in the United States since the 1980s, through controls on gasoline emissions and pipes that supply drinking water, could reduce the potential impact of lead to cataract development. The extent to which lead might contribute to cataract, worldwide, is unknown. Lead exposures early in life can accumulate in bones. As bones thin with age, they not only release calcium but also other stored minerals like lead. Therefore, if lifetime lead accumulation is high, anything that increases osteoporosis could increase lead exposure."

"Benefit is unknown: The use of multivitamin supplements has not been associated with lower risk for AMD in population studies (except in Americans who did not report drinking milk daily). A low glycemic index score is likely to be a marker for a plant-food and nutrient-rich diet, which might protect against AMD, especially over many years. The impact of overall diet patterns on AMD is poorly studied. The impact of multivitamins on the onset or worsening of AMD has not been tested in clinical trials."

"The Importance of Water People who want to lose weight need to ensure that they are drinking adequate amounts of water or other low- or no-calorie beverages. In many cases, a hunger pang can be relieved by simply drinking a glass of water. Why? It may be because mild dehydration created a sensation that is perceived as hunger. It may also be because water added volume to the stomach. However, since water and most other beverages are quickly absorbed, they reduce hunger only briefly and have no prolonged impact on satiety."

"Drink me," said Kalakuta; and the operation could not proceed until someone should be found capable of drinking it up. Shiva, sitting aloof and afar, was approached. Magnificently, he relaxed from his position of deeply indra'wn meditation and proceeded to the scene of the churning of the Milky Ocean. Taking the tincture of death in a cup, he swallowed it at a gulp, and by his yoga-power held it in his throat. The throat turned blue. Hence Shiva is addressed as "Blue Neck," Nilakantha."

"Contaminated drinking water had caused over 100,000 illnesses between 1971 and 1985, according to an EPA report. But in Bush's first year in office, while the EPA received 80,000 complaints of contaminated drinking water, only one in a hundred were investigated. And in 1991 and 1992, according to a private environmental group, the National Resources Defense Council, there were some 250,000 violations of the Safe Water drinking Act (which had been passed during the Nixon administration)."

"And the redeemed of Yahweh, in their roof garden, are served the inexhaustible, delicious flesh of the monsters Behemoth, Leviathan, and Ziz, while drinking the liquors of the four sweet rivers of paradise.148 It is obvious that the infantile fantasies which we all cherish still in the unconscious play continually into myth, fairy tale, and the teachings of the church, as symbols of indestructible being. This is helpful, for the mind feels at home with the images, and seems to be remembering something already known."

"Orange juice: drinking 3 cups of orange juice a day increased HDL by 21 percent over 3 weeks, according to the results from a small British study of 25 healthy men and women with high total and LDL cholesterol. That's a nutritional commitment some people would be challenged to achieve, especially since it adds up to 330 calories and 75 grams of carbohydrate (plus about 240 milligrams of vitamin C and 1.5 grams of fiber). It's possible this study highlights an effect from high-antioxidant fruits and vegetables, so stay tuned for more news about this one in the years to come! 2."

"To help lower homocysteine levels: ■Get more folic acid by eating dark leafy greens, dried beans, asparagus, and spinach and drinking orange juice. ■Eat bananas, whole grains, nuts, and seeds for vitamin B6. ■Take in B12 through low-fat dairy foods and fortified cereals. A few other factors ire also known regarding homocysteine levels. ■Men tend to have higher levels than women, and both sexes tend to show increasing hvels as they age. ■Smoking is associated with higher levels. ■Higher coffee consumption is associated with higher homocysteine levels."

"If you drink, enjoying a moderate amount of alcohol (one or two drinks per day) seems to have a beneficial effect on stroke risk, but excessive drinking (more than three drinks a day) actually raises the risk of stroke and the incidence of diabetes. The systolic reading measures the pressure in the blood vessels during that split second when the heart pumps out the blood. The diastolic reading measures the pressure when the heart is at rest. Years ago, the diastolic measurement was considered the more important of the two."

"The flavored green teas, like the mango or blueberry types I'm drinking right now, just keep it interesting. A few things to keep in mind as you embark on this beverage adventure: ■The phytochemicals in tea have a half-life of a few hours, so have 1 cup now, another later to get the biggest bang for your tea bag. ■Tea components may have synergy with nut components, so it's a great idea to enjoy your morning or afternoon tea as a snack with a handful of nuts. This can work out well at the office; just keep some tea bags and a can of nuts in your desk!"

Here in this blessed moment, I am integrally connected to Maple with her sap giving me new life, new vigor to begin again the cycle of the growing season.

"While activists continue to push for changes such as reducing the pesticides in foods, higher standards for our air and drinking water, and tougher standards for heavy metal exposure, my prescription focuses on what you can do right now as an individual. So much that's out there currently is about what you should not do; RENEW emphasizes the healthful solutions you can follow, and the positive things you can do for your family, your home, and yourself.

"And when they do search for clues to an illness's origins, they routinely look for traditional causes such as an invading bacteria or virus, or, in the case of liver cirrhosis, drinking too much alcohol. Few doctors will investigate another potential genesis that relates to toxins, chiefly because they don't have the resources or know-how to do so. Textbook cases of illnesses attributed to toxins don't have a strong voice or foothold yet in conventional medical circles."

"The kitchen looked pure Chorotega: a fogon, corn kernels soaking in a black earthen pot, hollowed gourds for drinking, a packed-dirt floor, a dog sniffing for crumbs. The second room was for both sleeping and storing feed. He dutifully answered our questions: What do you eat? ("Beans, tortillas, fruit, and once a year, beef when I butcher a cow.") When do you go to bed? ("When the sun sets.") When do you wake up? ("When the sun rises.") He kept looking over at his ax, as if it were waiting for him. "I should finish my work," he said apologetically."

"People were inside, I imagined, sitting on the floor, drinking green tea, or napping warmly in their bedrolls. From one low, wooden house with a dripping, slanting roof I heard the ringing of laughterŚbig, hee-hawing, belly laughing. Ushi. Inside her house, Ushi sat snugly wrapped in a kimono. Her hair was combed back revealing her bronzed forehead and alert, green eyes. Her smooth hands lay serenely folded in her lap. At her feet, her 77-year-old daughter, Kikue, and best friends, 90-year-old Setzu Taira and 96-year-old Matsu, sat cross-legged on tatami mats."
