"Try to limit sodium consumption to less than 2,000 mg a day. Your choices are easier when you know the salt content of various seasonings. Some useful comparisons: • Sea salt, 1 teaspoon: 2,360 mg sodium • Low-sodium tamari, 1 teaspoon: 700 mg sodium • Bragg Liquid Aminos, 1 teaspoon: 233 mg sodium • South River Sweet White Miso, 1 teaspoon: 115 mg sodium It is helpful to keep breakfast and lunch simple—and nearly the same every day. Specific recipes follow in the chapters ahead, but there are lots of useful ways to think about putting them together."

"Any food additives •r Potassium bromate, propyl gallate, sodium nitrite, sodium nitrate, monosodium glutamate, etc. Check out the Center for Science in the Public Interest's website for further information and updates: www.cspinet.org/reports/chemcuisine.htm. Toxin Rich Foods • ?Red meats (unless organic or grass-fed) and organ meats (liver, thymus or sweetbreads, and kidneys) • ?Large predatory fish and river fish, including swordfish, tuna, tilefish, and shark, which contain mercury and other contaminants in unacceptable amounts. • ?"

"They have been putting "Heavy Sodium" in the drinking water to numb out the population and make it, supposedly, happy and content. Dr. More uncovers the conspiracy, stops the placement of Heavy sodium in the water supply, and thereby returns his patients to normal—their vitality, as well as their troubles, restored. In the place of Heavy sodium, Dr. More calls for an authentic unmedicated human experience, however painful it may at times be."

"Sulfites (sulfur dioxide, sodium sulfite, sodium and potassium bisulfite, sodium and potassium metabisulfite): These are made from sulfur and mineral salts. They can cause severe allergic reactions, including breathing difficulties, gastrointestinal disorders, unconsciousness, hives, and anaphylactic shock. Found in many processed foods and almost always in wine and beer."

"Avoid cosmetics that include parabens (methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, and butylparabens); phthalates; sodium laureth/sodium laurel sulfate; butyl/ethyl acetate; petrolatum; cocamide DEA/lauramide DEA; diazolidinyl urea; propylene glycol; toluene; synthetic colors and fragrances; and triethanolamine. Likewise, avoid using synthetic perfumes and cologne. Studies show that many perfumes and colognes often contain phthalates and parabens (both of which are known endocrine disruptors)."

"As an example: Inside the cell, the sodium salt concentration should be low; therefore, the cell works constantly to keep the sodium out. When the trans fats are incorporated into the cell wall, sodium is able to move in more readily and the cell has a hard time keeping the sodium level down. It has to work extra hard to move the excess sodium out (24). Increasing the ability of substances to flow into a cell increases the chance of cancer-producing substances moving into a cell (25)."

"The small amounts of sodium or of trans-fatty acids that occur naturally in food pose no health hazard. It is the addition of sodium chloride to food that raises the sodium concentration to levels that are unsafe for many people. High-sodium foods are those that taste salty or that contain sodium chloride as an ingredient, listed on the food's label. Most trans-fatty acids enter our diets from the addition of partially hydrogenated oils, which are usually listed on the label."

"Ikeda discovered that the active extract of the flavorful seaweed had the characteristics of glutamic acid and that this active substance was monosodium glutamate, the sodium salt of glutamic acid. His discovery was secured with the British patent number 9440—titled "Manufacture of a Flavoring Material"—on April 21, 1909. Dr. Ikeda knew he held a food secret with many possible applications. While still at the Imperial University of Tokyo he began filing other patents on commercial manufacturing processes, first using the breakdown of wheat protein and later soybean protein."

"Recent evidence indicates that other forms of sodium, such as sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), monosodium glutamate, and so on, have little effect on blood pressure even in salt-sensitive individuals. It appears that salt, not sodium, is the main culprit. However, monosodium glutamate, or MSG, which is used widely (especially in some Chinese restaurants) as a flavor enhancer, may have other ill effects. While MSG has no effect on heart disease, some research suggests that MSG may be harmful to your health."

"California's soils were rich in sodium sulfate and sodium carbonate, whereas seawater was enriched in sodium chloride. The salts in the soil were weathering out of rocks, dissolving in soil water, and then teptecipitating where the water evaporated. He teasoned that drier areas had saltier soil because rain sank into the ground and evapotated in the soil. So just as greater rainfall leached rhe alkali from the soil, repeated flooding could flush salts from the ground. Collaborating with farmers eager to improve their land, Hilgard also advocated mulching to reduce evaporation of soil moisrure."

"Like levee pumps, your body's membrane mineral pumps keep potassium inside the cell and sodium outside the cell, as well as performing other functions. ?Your body loses much-needed potassium and calcium via your urine. How to Get Enough Magnesium and Potassium Magnesium is an antacid. You need the antacids in your body?potassium, magnesium, calcium, and, as a last resort, protein—to neutralize acid waste. The more antacids you consume in your diet, the fewer you have to borrow from your body stores."

"Table salt (straight sodium chloride) is not available for use in the body and can cause a toxic buildup. This may also potentially apply to salts that are sun-dried. The process of sun drying, like many other forms of heating, causes electrons not to be available and the ions to form more tight bonds that make them inaccessible for assimilation. If salt creates a savory and watery feeling in the mouth, then it is still ionic. If it dries the mouth, this suggests that it has converted to the less assimilable covalent form."

"Celery juice has a calming effect on the nervous system, due to its high concentration of organic alkaline minerals, especially sodium. The minerals contained in celery juice make the body's use of calcium more effective, balancing the blood's pH. Celery should be the center of your green vegetable juices, and can be included in green soups and smoothies to alkalinize a system taxed by acidifying Culture of Death foods and lifestyle choices. NOPAL CACTUS Nopal is prickly pear cactus, widely used as a traditional food throughout Latin America."

"RO units remove bacteria, viruses, nitrates, fluorides, sodium, chlorine, particulate matter, heavy metals, asbestos, organic chemicals, and dissolved minerals. They do not remove toxic gases, chloroform, phenols, THMs, some pesticides, and low-molecular-weight organic compounds. When combined with an activated carbon filtration system, however, they can remove the entire spectrum of impurities from the drinking water, including organic and inorganic chemicals. Many RO units now have pre- and post-filters to take care of any residual impurities that the RO unit does not remove."

"They do not, however, absorb inorganic mineral salts such as chloride, fluoride, sodium, nitrates, and soluble minerals. For this reason, they are best for city water systems but not for well water systems, which have a potential to be polluted with high amounts of nitrates from agricultural wastes. A concern regarding granular charcoal filters is their tendency to be a gathering ground for bacteria, yeasts, and molds, and their inability to remove pollutants found in some drinking water."

"You eat veggies and fruits to pack your vault with potassium, magnesium, and calcium, but the sodium chloride you eat zaps your potassium, magnesium, and calcium—and then urine exiles the good minerals. Lean meat, including seafood, pork tenderloin, skinless chicken breast, and skinless turkey breast, produces about 9 points (milli-equivalents or mEq) of acid per 3.5-ounce serving. Nuts and whole grains give you about 7 points of acid per equivalent serving; bread and legumes, about half that."

"In other words, limit your salt consumption to 400 mg per day in addition to the natural sodium found in all the unsalted produce and other dishes you eat each day. 10. Get most of your starch intake from carrots, peas, sweet potato, squash and beans, not from flour products and white potato. Do not eat white flour products. If you're using bread and pasta, use limited amounts, not more than one serving per day and, of course, make sure it is 100 percent whole grain. 11. Limit your consumption of oil to one tablespoon daily. Oil is a fattening, low-nutrient food."

"Four months later, Wolfgang Ketterle from Massachusetts Institute of Technology replicated their experiment, but with a form of sodium; for this work, he, as well as Cornell and Wieman, won the 2001 Nobel Prize.20 Then a few years after that, Ketterle and others like him were able to reproduce the effect with molecules."

"More unhealthy foods are eliminated, sodium levels continue to decrease, and your diet becomes even more nutrient rich. You will learn how to make great tasting healthy salad dressings and dips from nuts and nut butters, instead of oil. My creative recipes will ensure that you don't miss your old eating style. As you move up to Phase Three and have more experience, you will become skilled at rapidly estimating the nutrient points in foods, recipes, and menus. You will instinctively know how much high-nutrient food you need to eat each day and you may not have to count anymore."

"Contains 2% or less of each of the following: rye meal, corn flour, molasses, rolled whole wheat, salt, dough conditioners (ammonium sulfate, sodium stearoyl lactylate), brown sugar, honey, vinegar, oatmeal, soy flour, mono and diglycerides, partially hydrogenated soybean oil. As we take a look at this list, we see the first two ingredients listed are white flour and sugar. It is junk food. • Enriched wheat flour is white flour. The bran and the germ portion of the whole wheat, which are rich in vitamins and minerals, have been refined out."

"Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is unbelievably useful in every room of your house. It can neutralize acid, scrub shiny materials without scratching, unclog and clean drains, extinguish grease fires, and remove certain stains. Baking soda can also be used to deodorize your refrigerator, carpets, and upholstery. It can clean and polish aluminum, chrome, jewelry, plastic, porcelain, silver, stainless steel, copper, and tin. 7. White distilled vinegar works much better than any toxic disinfectant you can buy. It contains about 5 percent acetic acid, which makes it great at removing stains."

"I used bath products that were free of irritants like propylene glycol or sodium lauryl sulfates. Products like California Baby and Burt's Bees are great. I especially loved Burt's Baby Bee Diaper Ointment! Massages with pure jojoba oil are great, too! I consider all these things "no-brainers," but I guess not for a lot of mothers, because there are so many bad and toxic products on the market. Julie S., Dallas, GA Got Milk? Earlier in the book, I discussed making informed choices about which organic products to buy. In an ideal world, you'll bring only organic foods into your home."
