In the book Winning the War on Cancer, author Dr. Mark Sircus discusses sodium bicarbonate, which helps to save countless lives every day. Sodium bicarbonate is the time-honored method to “speed up” the return of the body’s bicarbonate levels to normal.

It is also the least expensive, safest, and perhaps most effective cancer medicine there is.

Sodium bicarbonate delivers a natural form of chemotherapy in a way that effectively kills cancer cells — without the side effects and costs of standard chemotherapy treatments. The only problem with the treatment, according to Sircus, is that it’s too cheap. Since no one is going to make money from it, no one will promote it.

Those that do will be persecuted for it. The trouble with doing new studies on bicarbonate is that they are expensive and no drug company is going to fund a study when they can’t profit from the treatment.

Avoiding Negative Vibrations

They Said We Could Raise The Energy Level Any ...

Taking on the Energy of Others
There are times when you may find that being around certain individuals or groups of people leaves you with feelings of discomfort. It may be that spending time with a particular friend feels draining or that dealing with a specific coworker exhausts you. Being around toxic or angry people is also draining. And you may even find that being surrounded by a crowd of people lowers your energy levels rather than perks you up. This is not that unusual. Each of us radiates energy and is capable of being influenced by the energy of other people. It is important to learn how to shield yourself, so you don’t unknowingly take on someone else’s energy. While some people know how to instinctively protect themselves from being adversely affected by energy, most of us need to discover and practice the technique that works best.

There are a number of ways to avoid being affected by people’s energy. Shielding is one preventative technique you can use. Center yourself and envision being enveloped in a cocoon of loving and protective light. This protective layer should allow you to consciously regulate the energy around you. The intent to shield oneself is all you need for this technique to work. You can even create a trigger word to assist you in quickly creating a shield. Say this word each time you create a new shield, until the word and the shield become automatically associated in your mind. If you run into a person whose energy you find draining, you may want to cleanse your own energy field after your encounter. Sage, cold showers, singing, mineral water baths, spending time in nature, and a simple break to recharge are all ways to accomplish this.

While it is important to know how to shield yourself from energy, there are those energies that you may not want to shut out. The energy of laughter from a newborn baby, the feeling of joy radiating from someone in love, and the frequency of calm emanating from an enlightened teacher are just some of the energies coming from others that you may want to have around you.

Eating Nuts During Pregnancy Might Increase Asthma Risk

Children born to mothers who ate nuts or nut products daily were 50% more likely to have asthma than those whose moms avoided the foods, a Dutch study shows.

NO SURE THING: Asthma and asthma symptoms did occur in some children whose mothers, in a study, rarely or never ate nuts while pregnant.

What’s new: A pregnant woman who eats nuts or nut products every day during pregnancy may increase her child’s risk of developing asthma.

The finding: A large study by the Dutch government has found that children born to women who ate nuts or peanuts, or items made from them, such as peanut butter, daily while pregnant were 50% more likely to wheeze, have difficulty breathing or have asthma diagnosed by a doctor compared with children whose mothers rarely or never ate nuts or nut products while pregnant. The study, published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine this month, is part of a larger, ongoing research initiative, the Prevention and Incidence of Asthma and Mite Allergy study, which is investigating how allergies develop in children and how they can be prevented.

Another finding: The odds of developing one particular asthma symptom — wheezing –were reduced in children whose mothers ate fruit daily during pregnancy, but the design of the study made it difficult for the researchers to conclusively link the two in a cause-effect relationship.

How the study was done: Nearly 4,000 expectant mothers, recruited into the study more than a decade ago, completed a dietary questionnaire on how often they ate fish, eggs, milk and milk products, nuts and nut products, fresh fruit and vegetables. Researchers followed up on the women’s offspring at 3 months old and then once a year until the children were 8, gathering information about the children’s diets, allergies and asthma symptoms.

Aside from nuts, none of the other dietary components appeared to affect the children’s likelihood of developing asthma or asthma-related symptoms. The food the children ate also appeared to have no bearing on their risk of asthma. Only the children whose mothers ate nuts or nut products every day while pregnant were more likely to experience wheezing, shortness of breath or other asthma symptoms.

Why it matters: A scientifically validated link between what a woman eats and her child’s risk of a health problem would, of course, affect the advice doctors give to expectant mothers — and, it is hoped, reduce the incidence of that problem.

Numerous studies have tried to clarify the relationship between a woman’s diet during pregnancy and the development of asthma or allergies in her child. Researchers have found that some vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin D and iron), as well as some foods (such as fish and apples), may protect against asthma and allergies. Others have shown that exposure to peanuts while in utero may increase a child’s risk of developing an allergy to them. But the current study, its authors say, is the first of its kind to follow up with its participants repeatedly over a long period, and thus is expected to be more reliable.

This study is also significant for what it didn’t show. Unlike those earlier studies that found that eating more fish during pregnancy can reduce the risk of asthma or allergies in offspring, the Dutch researchers produced no evidence to support those findings. (They were unable to draw conclusions about apples or specific vitamins or minerals, however, because they didn’t ask mothers for such dietary details.)

What we still don’t know: How could fetal exposure to nuts trigger asthma? Scientists have proposed a number of ideas, but the precise mechanisms are still unknown. Though the study suggests a link between nut consumption and asthma, it doesn’t show that a woman who avoids nuts during pregnancy has found a surefire way to prevent asthma in her offspring: Asthma and asthma symptoms did occur in some children whose mothers rarely or never ate nuts while pregnant. The study may be large and well designed, but its findings will need to be replicated before its results can join the legions of advice given to pregnant women across the globe.

Half the World will be Obese by 2030

[amazon_link asins=’B00JBLLM0Q,B017SFCWDC,B01K4L7TKS,0804137846,B00H28YG1C,1623159288,B00Y837JLS,151461927X,B01M4R32QX’ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’finmeacur-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’47e677b5-6c27-11e7-99cb-bdb1523c512d’]

With waistlines increasing rapidly around the world, a group of researchers at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine predict that by 2030, almost 58% of the world’s population will be overweight or obese.

The data was examined in “Global Burden of Obesity in 2005 and Projections to 2030,” authored by Tanika Kelly, a doctoral candidate at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. Kelly claims that almost one-third of the world is already considered overweight or obese.

The research holds a lot of importance, as it is the first to pool systematically peer-reviewed data from over 100 countries into one comprehensive global estimate for obesity.

The researchers compiled results from population-based studies that were published in peer-reviewed journals from January 1990 through August 2007. Overall, the researchers employed 72 national, 22 multi-site and 14 regional studies from 106 countries, covering approximately 88% of the world’s population.

The study reveals that till the year 2005, approximately 23.2% of the world’s adult population was overweight and 9.8% was obese. More or less 937 million adults were overweight and 396 million were obese, and if a similar trend continues, the number of overweight individuals will double to 2.16 billion by 2030 and the number of obese adults will grow up to 1.12 billion during the same period of time.

“The high prevalence of overweight and obesity, combined with their concomitant health risks makes it a particularly relevant worldwide public health challenge,” the researchers said.

Public health initiatives have already been starting in many developed countries, unfortunately such programs are absent in the developing nations.

The study is published in the latest issue of International Journal of Obesity.

Today’s Parents are Poor Role Models’

Parents are usually considered to be a child’s first teachers and role models. But, a study has some dampening news for today’s generation of adults – you’re responsible for your kid’s lack of basic moral values.


Researchers at the CIhildren’s Society in Britain have carried out the study and found that children aren’t acquiring basic moral values nowadays because today’s parents are actually poor role models.

For their study, the researchers questioned 1,176 people – they found that two thirds of adults believe that the moral values of young people have declined considerably since the time when they were young, the Times reported. According to the society, the rise of the celebrity culture and weakening family bonds are undermining traditional moral values among young people.

But it has also blamed adults for failing to engage with children and being too eager to criticise their behaviour rather than just intervening and helping them to navigate the challenges of modern life.

According to Bob Reitemeier, the chief executive of the society, adults need to take more responsibility for the young people around them. “We reap what we sow when it comes to teaching children values. Every adult plays a vital role, which we should nurture as much as we can.

“Unfortunately, it is easier to criticise children than to invest in them, and it is the children most in need of positive role models who are becoming disconnected from their communities and wider society.”
