Top 5 Deadliest Substances on Earth – ?

Top 5 Deadliest Substances on Earth – YouTube.

Thirty years ago, I knew an oncologist (cancer doctor) who was researching cancer cures.  We were walking on the beach on the first warm day in spring – hundreds of others were also doing the same – and I asked him to tell me about his project.  What he told me reminded me of books I’d read: “Laetrile, Nature’s Answer to Cancer” and “World without Cancer”.

That’s wonderful!” I said, “you are going to find it!”

“How do you know?” he asked.

“Because that’s Laetrile,” I responded.

He stopped dead and stood like a stone statue while people walked by us.  He stared silently into space.  He seemed to be in a trance.  I could not get his attention. Finally, he spoke in a very quiet voice.  “They’ll destroy me…” he said.

I asked “Who? Who will destroy you?”  It took him several minutes to answer.

“The AMA will destroy me,” … and he repeated that several times.

On the walk back to my apartment, he told me that he had been on a committee at the National Institutes of Health, responsible for testing Laetrile.  The test?  Only this:

The head of the committee walked in the door while they all sat around a big table, licked his finger and put it in a small bowl of Laetrile in the middle of the table, tasted it and spat it out.  “That’s CYANIDE!” he said loudly.

That was it!  No other test was performed.  Laetrile was outlawed.  My friend knew the vicious politics of medicine and science.  His research also stopped dead in its tracks.  He changed specialties.  Ironically, my friend had been unknowingly reinventing the wheel.

If he had felt safe to announce his findings to the world, there would no longer be a cancer epidemic. If the pharmaceutical and medical industries sincerely valued life over profits and wanted to prevent and cure cancer, they could.  My mother would still be alive.

The pharmaceutical industry would like you to avoid seeds, nuts and beans, dark green leafy greens, etc, because if you don’t get a little bit of “nature’s answer to cancer”, you will be a great source of revenue for them. The cancer epidemic still rages in the US because we eat sweet, salty, sour, but avoid the bitter flavor.  I learned from those books to eat my apple seeds, lemon seeds, grapefruit seeds.  And it appears that once I’ve had enough, I no longer eat them.  The body is wise..  Read those books.  When you eat an apple, eat the seeds. It might be the seeds that keep the doctor away.


Danish newspaper article on circumcision

Posted: May 6th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Children, Circumcision, Foreskin, Men, Speaking out | No Comments »

This is deeply personal and important to me, as I am myself a victim of this vile practice – due to my misfortune of being born in the United States.  Although my young mother was not keen on the idea, a doctor insisted on doing it, and she relented.

What were this man’s motivations?  Why was it so important to him what my penis looked like?  Why did he think that the most intimate part of my body, my ‘private parts’, my penis, was his prerogative?  I’ll never know what he wanted from me.  But what ever it was, he took it.  He had his way with me.  He carved his pay-check into my penis.  He carved his religion into my penis.  He carved his tribal marking into my penis.  He carved his custom into my penis.  He carved his grotesque aesthetic preferences into my penis.  He carved his obscene signature into my penis.

Make your own antibiotic – colloidal silver

Posted: December 12th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Colloidal silver, DIY, Silver | No Comments »

Silver is a powerful metal for healing. It has been used for purification and healing for as long as humans have made records. For millennia, people with only simple tools made colloidal silver and used it inside and outside their bodies to treat diseases and wounds – in a similar way to how we use oral antibiotics and topical antibiotic creams today.

“Born with a silver spoon in his mouth” indicated someone whose table was furnished with silver utensils, silver bowls and silver plates and silver was recognized to be an important health blessing. Stainless steel “tableware” has only been around for a century or so. Plastics are recent inventions. But historically, “silverware” was literally made of silver.

Silver was the original antibiotic. Silver nitrate was (and still is, in some places) routinely used in hospitals to treat the eyes of newborns, just in case their mothers were infected with a venereal disease that might render them blind). A piece of silver would be placed in a jug to keep the milk fresh.

As recently as 1978, the March issue of Science Digest published an article entitled “Silver, Our Mightiest Germ Fighter”. The author reported that a majority of airlines used silver water filters to purify their onboard drinking water. These airlines included British Airways, Lufthansa and Air France. NASA chose a silver water purification system for the space shuttle after evaluating 23 different competing systems. In Japan, they use silver air purifiers.

Throughout history, silver was extremely effective, used with no known deleterious side effects. However, no one can make a great deal of money off colloidal silver, because it is simple enough to make at home. Therefore, the medical and pharmaceutical industries waged a public relations war against colloidal silver, while encouraging the use of their own proprietary products.

There are a few blue-skinned “poster children” whom the industries point to when they want to discourage us from considering the use of colloidal silver. However if you study the cases of these blue-faced people, you will find that it required a great deal of overexposure to silver – and low quality, incorrectly made silver – to attain the discoloration.

Now the pharmaceutical company is in a little bit of a quandary. New products on the market contain silver. Healing salves, for one. Bandages infused with silver for another. Yet they use very little silver (for very little is needed) in the bandage itself and weave in strands of aluminum to make the bandage shiny. (I read the fine print.)

A few small, independent companies still make colloidal silver. They make their products seem so specialized that you will be discouraged from trying to make your own silver at home.. Only they can make it “this good”. But remember that for thousands of years, humans didn’t have extremely high tech equipment and their homemade colloidal silver still worked very well. The good news is, you can still make colloidal silver with simple equipment in the comfort of your own home. And you can use it for a plethora of complaints. In this article, I will show you how.

It is imperative that you use the very highest quality of silver for your colloidal silver experiment. Since pure silver bends easily by itself, sterling silver is only 92% silver and the rest is usually copper. Do not use sterling silver. Silver alloys are what may have caused the blue-skin effect. So, use only real silver, 99.99% pure silver, in your colloidal silver.

You can buy a foot of 99.99% pure silver wire – and all the equipment you need – then make gallons of colloidal silver – for less than a small bottle of colloidal silver from the store. And that is the most expensive part of your project. Yet it is a remedy that you can use for many conditions and that you can make over and over again, so the initial investment is quite small in the long run.

You can find 99.9% fine round silver wire at jewelry supply stores – a thicker gauge is best – in your town or on the Internet. The silver will last for a very long time. Let’s figure out how much it would cost to make it yourself.

My pure silver rods are approximately six inches long and I’m not certain of the gauge. I have had them for several years and after making gallons and gallons of colloidal silver, they are still doing well. You can use any gauge, but a thicker gauge will last longer, as a little bit of silver is lost with each batch you make.

The cost of silver varies according to the price of silver on any given day, but you can, as of this writing, buy two 99.9% pure silver rods for $15 – or $20 with shipping. Today, December 6, 2012, .999 Fine Round Silver Wire is $49 per ounce and one ounce of 12 gauge is 2 feet, 10 inches; 14 gauge is 4 feet, 8 inches.

What exactly will you need to make colloidal silver at home? I will estimate, using the “worst case scenario”.

  • $20 to 25, including shipping, for one foot of 99.9% pure silver rods [see http://www.ccsilver.com/silver/fines.html]
  • $ 9 – two alligator clips [see Radio Shack Model: 278-1156 | catalog #278-1156 – 14″ Insulated Test/Jumper Leads]
  • $12 – four 9-volt batteries [might as well pick them up while you’re at Radio Shack – they will last for years]
  • $ 2 – one gallon of distilled water [grocery store]
  • Glass jars with lids (best to not store CS in plastic)

Then you need to figure out a way to support the two silver rods and hold them apart so they don’t touch when they are in the water and the electricity is running. I use a square of wood with two holes drilled in it and a stiff wire (redesigned paperclip) on the alligator clips to hold them securely apart. I have seen others use chopsticks and rubber bands.

This photo shows connectors from the 9V batteries to the alligator clips but I have since discarded the collectors and attached the alligator clips directly to the batteries – one to the negative pole and one to the positive pole… and now it works even better!

Here is a photo of my setup. Notice that each battery is connected to the others directly – negative terminal to positive terminal, and that the remaining two terminals are connected to the silver rods by alligator clips.

You will know when the batch of silver is finished when it turns a pale yellow-brown color. It only required about 30-45 minutes for the last two batches I made, with the alligator clips directly clamped on to the battery terminals. This is a photo of my finished product. Yours might look different, but the test is in the taste. Put a drop on your tongue and you will be able to taste the silver.

Cold feet? Cold hands? Try this…

Posted: December 1st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Chilblain, Cold, Feet, Fingers, Frostbite, Greens, Hands, Toes | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

All my life I had cold hands and feet and would stay awake at night, no matter how many blankets I used, unable to sleep. I have reversed that condition. Perhaps what I learned will be helpful to you.

Remember all those cute pictures of fruits and vegetables that resemble body parts and – amazingly – they are beneficial for those same body parts? I now know which food is good for keeping the capillaries that feed the extremities, open and flowing, regardless of temperature.

I ate ‘raw’ for several years and although it seemed logical to me to eat raw in the hot summertime, when it would start to get cold, I’d think about soups – to “warm” myself. I’d made a yummy soup and my tummy would be happy and warm, but my hands and feet, fingers and toes got colder than ever and I was sleepless again.

Watching the deer walking around in the snow as comfortably as they did in the summer, eating the same plants and bushes, it appeared they didn’t suffer from the cold… and they didn’t eat soup. So as a bold and daring experiment, I returned to eating all ‘raw’ foods again – and my hands and feet were WARM again – and I slept again, with warm hands and feet.

Since the dear deer eat almost 100% greens, I started thinking that it might be the greens that air-conditioned me – kept me cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Dark, green, leafy vegetables that love the cold also make my body ok in the cold.

Leaf skeletonTake a peek at any leaf. There is a main vein down the center, but then there are lots smaller veins that lead to tiny little capillaries that then extend all the way to the ends of the leaves.

Not only are the veins and capillaries reminiscent of our own, but the chemical formula of chlorophyll is only one ion different than the chemical formula of hemoglobin – the foundation of blood. Ingesting chlorophyll is like getting a shot of hemoglobin. And in fact, during war, when they have run out of blood for transfusions, they have successfully used chlorophyll juice. Greens are quite literally the life blood of plants and contain everything we humans need for healthy blood.

I have not experimented further. I do not know whether cooked greens are as beneficial as raw greens. It is my guess that cooked greens are better for you than no greens at all. And I remember that a friend, many years ago in Kansas, said that when she felt a cold coming on, she’d eat an entire package of frozen spinach and she’d never get the cold. Another bit of anecdotal information is that when even carnivorous animals are sick, they eat grass and other leaves.

And the good news is: you can make raw greens as or more delicious than cooked. There is something called “massaging” the greens. and it can be done with your hands, even with wooden rice paddles or in your food processor if you have a dough-kneading attachment. If you have made bread and know how to knead bread, you can do the same to greens. Just fold them over and lean your weight onto them, and continue until they are nice and soft. Whatever method you use, just work the greens until they are relaxed, limp, sensuous – and then put a lovely dressing on them… or start with the dressing on them and massage it into them.

Or you might prefer to slice them into ribbons and marinate them in olive oil and lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar) and salt – maybe with sliced onion or garlic – for a couple of hours before dinner. Honestly, I can eat an entire bouquet of collards or kale prepared in this way – they are so delicious. And if you wish, you can put them in the frig in a covered container and marinate them for days.

Another wonderful way to eat greens is to make kale chips. Throw into your blender or food processor: a tomato or two, a large red bell pepper, some garlic, a little olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper – and then add as much brewer’s yeast as you wish – 1/4 to 1/3 cup – to make it taste somewhat like cheese. Wash your kale in a large bowl – any type – curly, italian, plain – and drain it well. Then add the cheesy mixture and work it through every leaf. I use a dehydrator at 105°F (43°C) for several hours or even a day – until the chips are crisp, but some people use their oven at the lowest temperature possible,, and it takes only a few minutes. This is a crisp, healthy, tasty, nutritious alternative to corn and potato chips. Kids love them!

At any rate, I hope that we all can soon grow organic food forests all over the globe so that we can have kale and chard and collards and herbs, etc growing right outside, ready to pick at any time.

Outside my front door is a large planter box with oregano, thyme, rosemary, mint and parsley. As I leave the house, on my way to a meeting or the store, I have been known to pick a sprig of an herb and chew it in the car. If you do this, just remember to check your teeth in the mirror before you get to your destination… to prevent that “spinach between your teeth” phenomenon, you know.


Foods Are Drugs

Posted: October 20th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Body, Drugs, Food, Pharmaceuticals, Salt | No Comments »

What is a chemical? And what is a chemical imbalance?

A chemical is a substance used in or produced by a chemical process. Life processes require chemicals. Pharmaceutical drugs are chemicals – yet so are foods.

When seeds sprout and plants grow, they begin pulling, dancing, tearing apart, and rearranging ingredients from the air, sunshine and earth. They are tiny, living, chemical factories. The resulting products of plant factories are a vast array of chemicals. People used to eat foods that were locally grown, without pesticides or
poisonous fertilizers, and in season.

Our bodies are also chemical factories. They take food, water, sunshine and other substances and work hard to make healthy bodies and minds. To make healthy bodies and minds, they need to have the right ingredients – ingredients that nature generously and wisely provides.

But what happens when the foods we eat have been highly processed and/or genetically altered? What happens when we eat foods in combinations that are not well balanced? What happens when we eat foods that were grown far away, picked when they were not yet ripe, foods that were preserved with poisons and radiation?

How far from natural can we go before we get sick? Can we learn to feed ourselves in ways that will eliminate the need for illness, dis-ease and pharmaceutical drugs? Yes!

Once we know the key, we can choose our mode and our moods by consciously choosing foods that support the quality of life we desire. We can use foods to help us wake up in the morning. We can use foods to help us sleep soundly at night. We can use foods to help us become more mentally sharp, more emotionally aware, more socially assertive, and more able to perform physical tasks.

There’s a lot of talk about chemical imbalances in the medical community, but doctors do not ask many questions of patients, such as, “What did you eat for breakfast this morning?” “What are your favorite things to eat for a snack?” “Tell me what you usually have for dinner.” “What are your primary activities?”

When it comes to real healing, it’s pretty much a do-it-yourself job. You learn to ask yourself those important questions. You learn to wisely choose what you feed yourself and your family. Here are a few understandings to help you begin to manage your health and happiness.

Air foods for mental alertness at work and school

Foods that grow in trees support mental activity. They help us wake up and get going in the morning. They are sweet, wet, cool and wash the waste out of our bodies. Eating fruits from trees first thing in the morning is like taking a shower on the inside. They make you feel clean and fresh and ready to greet the day.

Air foods are “uppers”. Too little of the air foods and you are mentally dull, bored and boring. Too much makes you feel weak, giddy, silly, goofy, “fruity,” “nutty,” “spacey,” forgetful.

Fire foods for social activities, competitiveness

Foods that grow on vines and stalks, foods you can reach straight out and pick, standing up, are foods that support social exchange. They are good for sales meetings, parties. Notice that most fire foods can be made into alcoholic beverages. Examples are: barley, wheat, grapes. Most of the world’s population makes rice the mainstay of their daily diet and they stay quite healthy.

Fire foods infuse you with enthusiasm. Too little of the fire foods and you may feel shy and retiring. Too many and you are overly aggressive.

Water foods feed the emotions

Emotions need to flow, like water. To have a relaxing day, you might go out on a lake and float on a raft or go to the ocean and watch the waves come in and go out. If you want to feel calm and peaceful, plan to eat water foods daily. If you are going to be working with a therapist in a healing session, you might want to eat lots of water food – like watermelon – the day before.

Water foods are foods that grow in the water and close to the ground, such as winter squash, melons, strawberries, pineapple, sea veggies, and dark green leafy vegetables. Most animals make greens a large part of their diets. To be healthy in body and mind, humans would do well to eat lots of greens too.

“But where do we get our protein?” I hear you ask. “Where do cows get their protein?” I respond. Chlorophyll is the key to radiant health.

The chemical structure of a molecule of chlorophyll is nearly identical to the chemical structure of a molecule of hemoglobin. In hemoglobin, the central atom is iron; in chlorophyll, the central atom is magnesium.

Water foods soothe; they help you sleep well. A nice large salad at dinner time will make you sleep like a baby. Too many water foods and you may feel overwhelmed on the feeling level.

Earth foods support physical movement at home and work, sleep

When you need to do something physical and practical like wash the car, vacuum the floor, or just move your body from one place to another, try a dose of earth food, a nice big glass of carrot juice or a hit of ginger in your smoothie, garlic in your salad. Root vegetables bring you back to a grounded, practical place. A baked potato in the evening will help you sleep.

Too few earth foods and you just plain don’t get things done. Too many earth foods and you feel like the proverbial couch potato. Examples of earth foods are – naturally – potatoes, carrots, beets, garlic, ginger, onions, peanuts.

Essential minerals for good mental & physical health

This is how upside down our food and drug industries have become… If someone is diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, they are also prescribed lithium, a naturally occurring mineral found in seawater. Plain, simple, dehydrated sea salt contains lithium. Bi-polar disorder is actually a lithium deficiency, similar to scurvy being a Vitamin C deficiency and pellagra being a B Vitamin deficiency. If we had been raised with naturally dried sea salt on our tables, rather than white sparkly free-flowing table salt, we would all have plenty of lithium in our bodies and no one would need lithium supplements in pharmaceutical drugs.

It is unknown how many other diseases might also be simple mineral deficiencies caused by the depleted, processed salt that pours easily from most salt shakers. The salt Americans typically use — sodium chloride with a little iodine added — is a byproduct of the mining industry, not a complete food. Where do the minerals go that were mined out of our salt? Ironically, they are sold to pharmaceutical companies which then make drugs with dangerous side effects.

Be safe — use only unrefined, naturally dried, sea salt. It’s moist, sticky, and a bit yellow or grey; not dry and sparkling white. You can get it in bulk at most health food stores. It costs more and it is worth it. Baths with unrefined sea salt allow your body to absorb salt at its own comfortable pace. You can put a few trace mineral drops in your drinking water for a smooth, refreshing drink, blessed with nature’s electrolytes.

Last but not least…

Eat as much of your food as possible raw, organic, locally grown and in season. Avoid white flour, white sugar, white salt. Packaged foods, manufactured in American factories can be hazardous to your health.


Prevent cancer

Posted: July 25th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Cancer | No Comments »

Don’t wait until you get cancer – prevent it now. You can wait until you get scurvy to eat your citrus fruits, or you can have a little citrus each cay and prevent scurvy.

Cancer is caused by a vitamin B17, aka “laetrile” deficiency. Do your research and you will find that every effective cancer remedy is bitter. Apricot seeds are VERY bitter, but the good news is that laetrile is in every seed, nut and green… and they can be quite tasty. In Europe they make a brew called Swedish Bitters that they take daily as a health tonic. It is made primarily of dark, green, leafy, bitter herbs.

I read the book “Laetrile, Nature’s Answer to Cancer” when I was young and since then, I’ve always chewed the seeds of my apples, pears, lemons, etc. I love to chew on fruit seeds; eating a piece of fruit seems incomplete without the seeds. I have learned to enjoy the tiny bite of the bitter flavor.

We have a cancer epidemic in the United States and the standard American diet focuses primarily on the sweet, sour and salty flavors. Raw seeds, nuts and greens are often missing in most American’s diets. We don’t need much bitter, but we do need a little.


Doctors fear cancer cure

Posted: April 4th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Cancer, Disease, Food, Healing, Health, Laetrile | No Comments »

I once knew a doctor, an oncologist, a professor and a researcher. We were walking on the beach in San Francisco and I asked him to tell me about his cancer research.

“Wonderful!” I said, “You will find it!”

How did I know that, he asked me.

“Because it’s laetrile,” I said.

He stopped in midstride and stared into the sky. He was speechless for several minutes.  Then, his eyes still wide, he said slowly, ‘They’ll destroy me!’ … Read more…


Aspartame – food or foe?

Posted: January 26th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Aspartame, Brain, Cancer, Disease, Food, Health | No Comments »

Just because something fits in your mouth and can be swallowed, does not make it “food”. Food is something nature grows, that supports health and life. Aspartame is a “food additive”, made by scientists in laboratories. “Food additives” do not support health and life and aspartame is not a food.

There are alternatives to artificial sweeteners. Do an internet search for “stevia”. You can grow a stevia plant in your garden or house and use leaves in your tea or smoothies. Stevia is also sold in powdered form and in flavored drops. There are many healthy sweeteners. Sugar or honey are superior to artificial sweeteners. Fructose — especially “high fructose corn syrup” apparently also has problems. Research.

Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World is an excellent movie. Also, here is some information from Dr. Mercola on the very real dangers of aspartame. When your health is involved, do not be shy to ask questions… your health, happiness, and maybe even your life, depend on your discernment. If a profit motive is part of the equation, ask even more questions. Always find the healthiest alternative to anything that threatens your health.
