JAMA admitted that chemotherapy and radiation are likely to cause death "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Reuters has surprisingly reported some scientific findings that are not usually released to the public.  These findings demonstrate a consistent correlation between childhood exposure to medical radiation and cancer drugs with having extremely high premature death rates. A recent study by Birmingham University (England) concluded that those who have cancers as children, and manage to []

Dairy Crisis in Ohio You Can Help Save Family Farms! "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Like the rest of the U.S., Ohio is in the midst of a dairy crisis that shows little sign of getting better. In 1995 there were 6,800 dairies in Ohio. during recent months, the average price of milk conventional farmers receive is around thirty percent (30%) below the cost of production. Dairy cooperatives are sending suicide hotline numbers along with milk checks. Organic dairies, of which there are at least several hundred in Ohio, cant compete with the certified organic mega-dairies in Texas and Colorado that are flooding the market with organic milk while violating federal regulations on the amount of time their herds should be on pasture.

Dairy families are wrestling with whether they must end the livelihood at which generations of their families have toiled. Many in the industry consider the disappearance of the family dairy farm is inevitable but that is not true. There is a way the family dairy farm can remain in business; producing and distributing raw milk for direct consumption.

Ohio raw milk consumers can help family dairies remain in business by joining a herd share program. Herdshares are private contractual arrangements in which someone purchases an ownership interest in a dairy animal (or herd of dairy animals) and pays a fee to a farmer for boarding, caring for and milking the animal(s). Herd share agreements are legal in Ohio by state policy and court decision.

Ohio is losing dairy farms nearly every day. The time to act is now.

ACTION TO TAKE

1. Get access to natures perfect food by joining a herd share program. You can likely find a herdshare near you by clicking on the Real Milk Finder link at www.realmilk.com; some dairies distributing raw cow milk through herdshare programs in Ohio can be found at the end of this alert. For goat milk and other farm products, check the website.

2. Post on your own social media stories on the crisis the dairy industry is going through and how distributing raw milk through a herd share program can enable some dairy farms to remain in business, especially organic dairy farms. In the near future, the Weston A. Price Foundation and its Campaign...

The False Dichotomy Between Food Calories and Food Quality "IndyWatch Feed Food"

As has been my tradition, in December I repost old favourites from years gone by. This year am looking back to 2015.
I come across it all the time. Angry folks who claim that when it comes to weight and/or health, calories don't matter at all and that what really matters is the quality or types of foods, or the folks who claim that the quality or types of foods don't matter at all, it just comes down to calories.

It's both of course.

The currency of weight is certainly calories, and while we all have our own unique internal fuel efficiencies when it comes to using or extracting energy from food or from our fat stores, we still need a surplus of calories to gain and a deficit to lose.

But foods matter too. Choice of food matters in terms of health, but also in terms of how many calories our body expends in digesting, and more importantly, upon satiety, which in turn has a marked impact upon how many calories, and which foods, we choose to eat.

So if you do come across a zealot from either camp that claims one or the other doesn't matter, feel free to ignore them.

Bungee Cords and Their Uses in Off-Grid and Survival Situations "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Bungee cords can make life a lot easier: at home, out in the woods, or when a disaster strikes...you want to stock up on these guys, and know how to use them.
Bungee cords are one of the most useful devices ever invented by man. Their simplicity is only surpassed by the multitude of uses they can be employed for. They can make life a lot easier: at home, out in the woods, or when a disaster strikesyou want to stock up on these guys and know how to use them.

One of the problems is that they can be faddish in terms of selling them. There are so many hardware and big-box stores that sell these plastic tubules with lids with what appears to be a wide variety and array of styles, that are pretty much about a third unusable, either because they are impractical or theyre junk. They have little mini-bungee cords, and others that have a nice plastic ball on the end instead of a hook. In a wide variety of fluorescent and highly obnoxious colors, they are also noxious with their off-gassing of chemicals from the Chinese factories.

I prefer subdued sets with hooks. They dont have to be so sturdy as to be able to airlift cargo under a CH-47 helicopter. They need to be able to be carried with ease. One of the things I mentioned is with a field-expedient hootch or lean-to. In a previous article, we talked about necessary winter gear and a military issue poncho is one of those items. If you are lucky enough to have a poncho that comes with grommets on the corner, you can take five bungee cordsfour on the corners, and one on the point where the hood protrudes.  This latter point: tie off the hood with the drawstring, and then loop one end of the bungee cord around it, and secure the other to a tree branch, for vertical lift on your hootch.

Bungees (if you use the old large Alice Pack of the U.S. Army that I use) can be attached to the frame on the inside, so they sit up against your back when the rucksack is on, and then you can just take them off and use them. Bungees secure gear, such as your poncho, to the outside of your pack (if you...

Natural Answers for Depression "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Exercise man

If you experience depression, you will typically be prescribed an antidepressant, an SSRI or other agent, and have to endure the common side-effects such as weight gain, aggression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and erectile dysfunction. If you consult a psychologist or counselor, the underlying psychological underpinnings (if any) are explored, strategies devised to cope. But there will almost never be talk about your diet, nutritional deficiencies that amplify dark moods, or the microbiome.

Yet there are very powerful strategies available that have potential to substantially lift mood. Such solutions wont, of course, erase the effects of childhood trauma or grieving from personal loss, but they can help smooth the emotional impact of such life events, elevate the hormones of mood, and make life easier naturally and inexpensively.

Among the most powerful nutritional and natural mood lifters:

  • Wheat and grain eliminationBy removing such foods, you are removing mind-active opioid peptides that derive from the gliadin protein of wheat and related proteins of other grains. These opiates exert a variety of effects, depending on individual susceptibility, ranging from paranoia in people with schizophrenia, to mania in people with bipolar disorder, to impulsivity in children with ADHD, to food obsessions in those prone to bulimia and bine-eating disorder, to depression in people prone to depression. The solution: remove the sources of gliadin-derived opioids, wheat and grains. For some people, the mood improvements with wheat/grain elimination are profound.
  • Vitamin D restorationEven before I implemented wheat and grain elimination in patients in my cardiology practice, I added vitamin D at doses sufficient to achieve 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood levels of 60-70 ng/ml (typically 4000 too 8000 units per day in oil-based gelcap form). I witnessed marked improvements in mood, particularly that associated with shortening daylight cycles in fall and winter, though the mood benefits are not confined to this seasonal effect.

10 Easy Ways to Save Your Money and Improve Your Health in 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Food"

As has been my tradition, in December I repost old favourites from years gone by. This year am looking back to 2015.
Who wouldn't want to both save money and improve their health? If you're looking for some ways to do so, here are some quick thoughts:
  1. Unless you have a medically proven reason or need, stop buying vitamins and supplements that at best provide only the most marginal of benefits to your health (estimated savings $100-$1,000/yr).
  2. Reduce your dinners out (including sit down, fast food, take-out, and supermarket take-out) by 50% across the board (estimated savings $1,000-$5,000/yr depending on family size and meal out frequency).
  3. Never eat lunch out unless someone else is buying or unless you have a business obligation to do so (estimated savings $500-$3,000/yr).
  4. Cancel cable or satellite TV, buy an HDTV antenna (so you can still watch your local sports, news and some TV), and use Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime or some other comparable service (estimated savings even after expenditures $250-$1,000/yr).
  5. Buy a thermos or a travel mug and a great coffee maker and kick your fancy coffee habit (estimated savings even post purchases $100-$500/yr)
Now of course there will be readers who spend more and less on various aspects of those points, but if there are readers where all 5 apply, making these changes might save them between $1,950 and $10,500 dollars.

As far as what to do with that windfall?
  1. Join a CSA farm share to increase your consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables (estimated average annual cost $400-$1,000 depending on size of share)
  2. Join a great local community centre or gym (estimated annual cost of $200-$600)
  3. Buy some used recreational fitness equipment (bikes, skis, snowshoes, etc.) from your local buy and sell (estimated one time cost of $200-$400)
  4. Take a cooking class at your local Community College (estimated cost of $100-$300)
  5. Save it all and use it for a stress relieving active vacation, or stress relieving debt relief.
(And sure, some of your own personal numbers and mileages will vary.)...

Tom Naughtons Fat Head Kids movie now available! "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Toms special gift is to make science and nutrition fun and interesting, the story told with cartoon characters (all drawn by Toms wife, Chareva) and plenty of funny momentsgenuinely laugh-out-loud funny moments. Because Tom spent many years as a stand-up comedian, he knows how to weave an entertaining story while informing kids (and adults).

All of Toms creations recount his own struggle with weight and health, at first not understanding why he was overweight and unhealthy despite following dietary guidelines. Once he came to understand why the proliferation of carbsgrains, sugars, soft drinks, processed foodsin the diet was the culprit, he finally lost the weight and reversed all his health struggles. And that ignited his mission to help educate everyone, adults and children, on the mistakes made by official dietary guidelines. And he does it with humor, cartoon characters, and a genuine understanding of the issues.

Tom also practices what he preaches. Having moved his family from Los Angeles to a farm in Tennessee, Tom tells me about the wonderful life his own children enjoy among the goats and chickens, garden, and trees, a return to a life the way we are all supposed to be living.

If you want/need a way to educate the kids, if you are a parent, grandparent, or schoolteacher with a desire to get the kids to understand that current dietary trends are disastrous and that better answers are available, I cant think of a better way to inform, educate, and laugh than with the educational tools that Tom and his wife have created.

8 Creative Reasons Why Every Prepper Needs PVC Pipe "IndyWatch Feed Food"

PVC is some pretty versatile stuff. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, and it can be found both in rigid or in flexible forms. There are also different uses as per the variance in capabilities.
Ready Nutrition Guys and Gals, were going to do a segment to stimulate some brain cells with ideas for your home and preparatory stanceregarding PVC pipe uses you may not have thought of. PVC is actually some pretty versatile stuff. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, and it can be found both in rigid or in flexible forms. There are also different uses as per the variance in capabilities. Lets jump into it!

PVC pipe can have a heat-resistance ranging from about 212 degrees F all the way up to 500 degrees F. Just be on the safe side: take the product number, make, and model, and find out directly from the manufacturer what the temperature range/rating is. PVC  can hold up to a pretty good beating from a slew of different chemicals, such as salt, acids, strong bases (alkaline, such as fertilizer), liquid fats, alcohol, and other strong solvents. For this reason, it is used in plumbing for sewage, as well as outflow transport for other noxious wastes and chemicals.

Putting it to use will depend on you researching the types available in your local hardware stores and performing an accurate assessment of them for what you intend. Lets explore some of those thinking-outside-the-box uses for PVC pipe.

  1. Cache tubes: Yes, PVC pipe (especially the type known as uPVC, or unplasticized PVC) resists solvents and things such as salts and alkaline substances that you find in the soil. You can find some biggies, believe me, if you go to a pipe or plumbing warehouse that specializes in large-diameter pipes.  You can cache all sorts of things, such as firearms, freeze-dried foods, or anything you wish to hide from the IHM (Incredible Human Mob) that will come hunter-gathering through your neighborhood when it hits the fan. Always good to have a surplus stashed away to fall back on, akin to the squirrel and his acorns. Ensure anything that has moving parts is properly coated with oil, grease, etc, and then packed away.

Use a spatula to ensure the rice doesnt stick to the bottom of the pan, and move the rice around so that its all getting reheated.
  5. Once the rice is hot (this will take about 5 minutes), push the rice over to the side of the pan and crack one of the eggs into the space. Making sure this bit of the pan is over the heat, fry the egg, giving a mix with the spatula until the egg starts to cook and look scrambled.

Did Dow Chemical Fake Safety Studies on Brain-Damaging Chlorpyrifos? "IndyWatch Feed Food"

December 5, 2018

Weve known for a while that Monsanto buried the truth about Roundup weedkiller by ignoring concerns by its own scientists. Now it seems Dow Chemical Co. has been using the same playbook.

Dow (renamed DowDuPont after its 2017 merger with DuPont) likely knew for decades that its widely used chlorpyrifos insecticide is harmful to humansespecially children and developing fetuses. But the company hid...

The Horrors of Gluten-Free Food "IndyWatch Feed Food"

It continues to happen: I run into people who say to me I follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle. I eat gluten-free! When I ask them what that means, they tell me that they only eat gluten-free bread, pasta, pizza, cookies, etc.

Im not entirely sure why this misinterpretation of the Wheat Belly message is so common. Lets talk about this important distinction, as being gluten-free can be an absolute health and weight disaster, unlike the magnificent health and weight loss we enjoy on the Wheat Belly lifestyle when done right.

Its perfectly fine to be gluten-free, i.e., avoiding wheat, rye, and barley that contains the gliadin protein within gluten responsible for celiac disease and other gliadin-induced reactions. People with celiac disease often argue But I have to be gluten-free! But the problem comes when food manufacturers try to get a slice of the action and recreate gluten-free breads, rolls, pizza crust etc. using one or more of four ingredients:

  • Cornstarch
  • Rice flour
  • Tapioca starch
  • Potato flour

Wheat and related grains raise blood sugar to high levels, higher than table sugar, due to the unique digestibility of amylopectin A. Very few foods raise blood...

Why I Resigned My Membership In The Obesity Society "IndyWatch Feed Food"

As has been my tradition, in December I repost old favourites from years gone by. This year am looking back to 2015.
For those of you who don't know, The Obesity Society (TOS) is, according to them,
"North America's premier scientific organization devoted to understanding obesity"
And I wholeheartedly agree, they really are, which is why I'm anything but happy to be resigning my membership.

I've been a member for the past decade, and I do my utmost to attend their annual meeting (now known as Obesity Week).

Paying to be a member of a professional organization, to me at least, means that you believe the organization's mission and methods to be congruent with your own, and sadly, that's no longer the case with me and TOS.

My concerns began in early 2013. That was when TOS published their, "Guidelines for Accepting Funds from External Sources" position paper (the document is long longer available on TOS' page but was published by Longwoods back when). In it TOS,
"expressly eliminates all forms of evaluation or judgment of the funding source"
and instead,
"TOS chooses to focus its ethical mission on transparency in disclosing the sources of funding, clear stipulations outlining our commitment to the ethical use of funds, and a commitment to non-influence of the funding sources over the scientific aspects of funded projects and TOS as a whole."
Lastly they stipulated,
"TOS should seek funding from as wide a variety of donors as possible."
Many, myself included, felt that without explicitly saying so, these guidelines were designed as a means to open the door for TOS to seek and take money from the food industry.

Shortly thereafter TOS struck their, "Food Industry Outreach Task Force", which seems to have morphed into their "Food Industry Engagement Council", the most recent meeting of which included representatives from Kellogg's, PepsiCo, Nestl, Dr. Pepper and Ocean Spray. There appears to be no doubt that TOS meant what they said back in early 2013.

To be clear, I'm all for dialogue, debate, and discussion with the food industry, but I just can't support taki...

Thanks for your support.  I'm going to come right out and say this. Although I make AIP nightshade-free sauces very regularly at home, it's not because I have an autoimmune intolerance to nightshades, like some of my friends do. It's because eating a rich tomato sauce gives me the worst fricking heartburn ever.  I went through a long period of indigestion and heartburn...

5 Gene Variants Linked to Gluten Sensitivity "IndyWatch Feed Food"

This might seem blasphemous on a Paleo-focused website, but (gasp) not everyone needs to be strictly gluten-free for their entire lives.  Indeed, as discussed in Genetic Adaptations to Neolithic Foods Understanding Bioindividuality, there is conclusive evidence that humans have adapted genetically, at least somewhat, to the change in diet that occurred with the advent of agriculture, namely the introduction of grains and dairy as substantial proportions of our diet.

Of course, gluten-containing foods are far from nutritional powerhouses, being nearly devoid of essential nutrients while containing comparable fiber to vegetables and fruit (see Gluten-Free Diets Can Be Healthy for Kids). For many individuals, gluten consumption contributes to impaired gut barrier function (see How Gluten (and other Prolamins) Damage the Gut and What Is A Leaky Gut? (And How Can It Cause So Many Health Issues?)) and gluten may also be linked to weight gain and obesity (see The Link between Gluten and Obesity). Theres also evidence that gluten can alter the microbiome in unfovorable ways, at least in gluten-sensitive individuals...
