This weeks bible verse :

Phi 4 : 14 [Niv] bible  :  Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles .



Comment :   It’s good to get involved in other people’s problems provided it’s a “good” person’s problems . The man who wrote it was the apostle Paul who was a very good or noble person .

 

 

About :

Greetings, as Christ would say , to the” Foundation of Nutrition” The Bible,  a health site by biblebill209@gmail.com .

This site is about using the bible as the anchor to eating” right” which science backs up .   For example, carbs [ grains / bread]   are the body’s main source of fuel a scientific fact, not protein or fat ,which the bible backs up Zech 9 : 17 [ Niv] bible .  It’s about getting your nutrients , vitamins , minerals from “food” not pills , which are essentially “unnecessary”  as science tells us .  I checked on the prevailing belief our soil is depleted and I found we still have some of the [ richest” class 1″ soil in the  whole world] in the Ca . valleys  were we get most of our produce etc! . Besides the body absorbs nutrients from  pills poorly .  

This site is simple, as Einstein said or alluded to ” Keep it simple ” nothing fancy .  Unlike all the health talk shows across the” whole country” who try to impress you with all kinds of complicated terminology like   C- reactor proteins , methilation ,etc !, but dismiss ,forget, or blow of ” basic simple nutritional principles” like the above point about carbs being the body’s main source of fuel.  And every one of them advocating misinformation like low to no carbs [ Paleo , Atkins ] , to people’s detriment,  Hos 4 : 6 [Niv] bible . unbelievable .

As a matter of fact this site is” so” simple even a 4th grader can understand it ,  see “the Doctrine of Signature” [ LOL] .

Think about this, we the [ U. S . ] consume more Vitamins and supplements , and health related pills than almost any country, yet we are one of the most” unhealthy” people in the world , hello ! .  So it’s about eating right, and if you do, you do “not” need pills , [ Vit, supps] and if you don’t eat right , [following this site]  it doesn’t matter that you take Vit and Supp, because, as I just stated ,the body absorbs nutrients from pills  [ I don’t care whose line of pills it is ]  very poorly . The only natural Vitamins are found in “food” not pills .

 

I try to get everyone to understand there are no bad foods except certain meats  [ unless you prepare them wrong ] ie ;  potatoes [deep fried ]  . There are no bad [  fruits /Veg , grains , whole dairy products ,]  but a variety.   Again ,the only foods  you” can’t”  eat  any  you wish too, are ,the  animal  [ meats] and certain [ seafood , fowl ]  etc ! . See  Lev  11 : all [ Niv] bible.

For example, there are 4″ original” food groups  1] grains  2] fruit/ veg  3 ] whole dairy  4]  meats , nuts , poultry , and to get all” 6″ essential nutrients common sense tells you to eat from all “4” to get all 6 nutrients . This is contrary to all the” nonsense” you hear today that food groups are bad for you , like [whole grains or whole dairy] . How could a food group be bad,? how could something ” whole” [ grains, dairy] be bad , it’s whoooooooooooooole , hello  !!!.  

 

This site is about helping people who are desperate, looking for answers to their failing health , who have tried all the latest diets [ Paleo , Atkins ]  etc!, but are still in bad health from listening to all the lies and misinformation ,which, think about this ,will destroy you Hos 4 : 6 [ Niv] bible .

I have no” agenda” ,no line of  “my” pills to sell , [vitamins, supplements , minerals,] no office to visit, as is the situation with the  overwhelming majority in the health and nutrition field , who are  just trying to get your money 1 Tim 6 : 10 [ Niv] bible . Kind of like the old west , when they would come around to your town set up a card table trying to sell their bottle of  snake oil,  to convince you it is the cure all to any ailment you may have . Again, as I stated at the top of this” about” section  , we consume more Vit / supps than most nations ,yet we are one of the most unhealthy people in the world !!!. Hello !!!.

 

Finally , it’s all about eating the way I’m espousing from all” 4″ food groups [organic] if you can  , lots of [ whole grains , fruit / veg ,] whole dairy ,” cutting out” the pig and eating” way less” red meat , drinking spring or well water [ so important ] and if you’re having a health problem [ an organ not functioning to 100%] find ” HERBS” for that organ , plain and simple .  At almost 60  I have no health problems.  I’m a laborer in construction and reguarly”out work” men half my age .  I also have a section about dogs which I feel really bad for ,[ because they can’t help themselves],  and anything related to health, [ humans or animals ].


As for My credentials or education or qualifications see Dan 1 : 17 [Niv] bible  . Since God is no respecter of persons Ac 10 : 34 , as corny as it may sound to you , if you spend time sincerely praying and ask for understanding , Pr 2 : 3 [Niv]  bible he will do the same for you as those “four” men .

Well I’m at it , just because you have degrees or are a Dr.  doesn’t mean you know what your talking about  Mk 5 : 26 , or because you don’t,  doesn’t mean you can’t have the proper knowledge or understanding .  See  Ac 4 : 13 ,   Jn 7 : 15  [Niv] bible . Think about it .

Oh , and as for my sentence structure , grammar , correctness etc! so what, I ‘ll get better ,what’s important is the content or understanding , that’s self evident. Look at all the most professional sites, their grammatically perfect etc ! but they don’t have the proper understanding , truth , nor reasoning ability’s concerning basic nutrition  Isa 44 : 17-19 .
Reminds me of the saying  “Don’t major on the minor and minor on the major  ” Unbelievable .

Dead Doctors don’t Lie :

What Does Dead Doctors Don’t Lie Mean?


The Title “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” was created by Dr. Joel Wallach after years of research on the subject of health and longevity. Dr. Wallach discovered that the life span of the average doctor in America is several years shorter than that of the average couch potato. Dr. Wallach began collecting obituaries of doctors only to find that many were dying of simple nutritional deficiencies. If doctors really knew the truth about health and longevity they should be living longer than anyone else, not dying sooner. This premature death pattern proves that doctors are missing some key elements when it comes to understanding what it takes to live a longer healthier life, hence was born the title…


The bible very much backs up the understanding of a Dr.  Joel Wallach , that Dr.’s do not understand what they are doing or how to treat [chronic] health problems [ cause and effect ] by eating right !!!!!


Mk 5 : 26 [Niv] bible :        She had suffered a great deal under the care of “many” doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse


Comment :  What a tremendous , insightful , revealing scripture . Notice the women suffered a great deal under the care of “many” Dr.’s , not one , but maaaaany!!! ,  and not only that they didn’t help her , but they made her worse , unbelievable !!! .

                                                              Thoughts                                                                                    

 Why do you think that scripture is in the bible, just to fill up space ? Think about it .

I promise you there is a “very good” chance that if you go to a Dr. of “conventional” medicine for chronic health conditions [ diagnose and treat] ” not emergency’s” , you not only will “not” be helped ,  but will actually get worse or even DIE!!!.

Doctors treat the effect not the cause [ foods] wrong eating ,  and with synthetic horrible drugs .

You treat yourself  85% of the time or [ better] concerning chronic long term health problems of any organ or system , by  1] Eating right ,  2]  Herbs,  and/or  3] Essential oils , 4] Fasting  , it’s called Self – Healing . You have no choice !!!!!!  Do you understand ???????????  

 


 

Modern Day Snake Oil :

vi·ta·min
ˈvīdəmən/
noun
plural noun: vitamins
  1. any of a group of organic compounds that are essential for normal growth and nutrition and are required in small quantities in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the body

     

                                                             Thoughts

    Americans are like one of the 3 nations that consume the most vitamins and supplements and we are “some” of the most  “unhealthy”  if not the “most” unhealthy people in the world .

    The only natural vitamins are those found in foods .

    The body absorbs nutrients from pills poorly. [ A scientific fact]

     I checked on it . In the U. S. we still have some of the richest [class one soil] in the whole world  in the California valleys were we get a lot of our produce . So the reasoning that the food is nutrient depleted and that you need pills holds no water .

    Most people take vitamins to  1] boost their immune system or 2]  to give them energy  [ makes no sense] they don’t do either.

    There are foods that greatly boosts one’s immune system like garlic, onions, yogurt ,[ grass fed] whole milk,  but pills [ supplements of nutrients found in foods or vitamins ] won’t .  Foods and Herbs will !!! .

    As for taking vitamins for energy nutrients in  food [ carbs , protein , fat ]  gives you energy  , not vitamin pills .

    There are fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and water-soluble vitamins B, and C .

    Fat soluble vitamins are not excreted daily as the water-soluble vitamins .

    Fat soluble vitamins can be dangerous to take because they are not excreted daily as water-soluble vitamins are which can lead to a toxicity in the liver . As well as other health problems [ arterial calcification , A – fib , fatty liver disease]  .

     

    Just because something is good for you doesn’t mean more is better ie; food , exercise , alcohol,  sleep etc ! .

    Think about this , vitamins have nothing too do with all the health problems . People are dying from The Big “3”  so to speak   ie;  [ Heart attacks, Cancer, Diabetes]  because ” THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO EAT RIGHT ”  !!!..

    1]  Heart attacks  =  are from a high animal fat [ saturated ] diet[ red and pork meats ] and eating too much “refined’ carbs,  too may calories taken in and not being burned up . This forms Plaque , [ clogged arteries] vitamins have nothing to do with it .

    2]  Cancer =  is caused by chemicals in the food and water , plain and simple . Vitamins won’t help or have nothing to do with it . You have to detoxify your body of the chemicals with lots of spring or well water, lots of “leafy” greens as well as fruits .

    3]  Diabetes =  is caused by consuming way too much sugar [ table] candy , doughnuts , pastries , pop the American diet . This causes the Pancreas to kick out insulin to cut the sugar,  the pancreas can’t keep up and burns out, that is why diabetics get insulin shots . They call it “Sugar” diabetes . Again , vitamins have nothing to do with all the above big “3” diseases mentioned .  As well as all the skeletal ,disk problems, arthritis, gout, kidney problems  etc !!!

     Again , all the above health problems are because  PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO EAT RIGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. , not because of vitamin deficiency’s . DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

    If anything vitamins are more dangerous than beneficial .

    It’s just like in the old west when someone would go around from town to town with his bottle of “elixir” touting that it will cure any ailments people have . It’s the same with pills , supplements .

    Is there a use for vitamins ?  yes,  like in cases of extreme emergency’s like intravenous feeding during surgery , severely malnourished or the like , but for the average person they will do nothing as Americans being the prime example .

    If anything vitamins are more dangerous than beneficial .

     

    Can you have too much vitamin A?
     

    Because vitamin A is fat soluble, the body stores excess amounts, primarily in the liver, and these levels can accumulate. … Although hypervitaminosis A can be due to excessive dietary intakes, the condition is usually a result of consuming too much preformed vitamin A from supplements or therapeutic retinoids [3,5].Aug 31, 2016
     
    Can you overdose on vitamin A?

    Vitamin A: Excessive, chronic intake of some forms of this fat soluble vitamin, specifically retinol or retinoic acid, can be toxic. They can build up in the body leading to hair loss, confusion, liver damage and bone loss. … Severe cases can end in liver damage, hemorrhage, coma and death.

    Vitamin D Supplementation – Be Careful, Researchers Warn

    Published Published Mon 6 May 2013

    Very high blood levels of vitamin D confer no additional benefit, researchers from Johns Hopkins reported in the American Journal of Medicine. In fact, when they combined the results of their present and previous studies, they found that raising vitamin D levels in “healthy people” with already normal levels may be potentially harmful.

    Healthy people and health care professionals have been bombarded with stories from health websites and the media about the hazards of low vitamin D levels, urging people to take supplements to protect against hardening of the arteries, hypertension, diabetes, weak bones, and a range of other illnesses.

    Study leader Muhammad Amer, M.D., M.H.S., said:

    “Healthy people have been popping these pills, but they should not continue taking vitamin D supplements unchecked. At a certain point, more vitamin D no longer confers any survival benefit, so taking these expensive supplements is at best a waste of money.”

    Some people definitely do benefit from higher vitamin D blood levels and should be considered for supplements, they include:

    • elderly women
    • patients with kidney disease
    • postmenopausal women
    • very obese people

    In this study, Dr. Amer and Dr. Rehan Qayyum reviewed data from over 10,000 participants in NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey) from 2001 to 2004. They then matched the data they had gathered with those contained in the National Death Index through the end of 2006.

    When they examined details on deaths from all causes and specifically cardiovascular disease, they found that people whose blood levels were at the top range of what the Institute of Medicine considers “adequate” (21 nanograms per milliliter of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D) had a 50% lower risk of dying prematurely.

    However, as blood levels of vitamin D rose above 21 nanograms per milliliters, that protective effective seemed to wear off.

    The main source of vitamin D is skin exposure to direct sunlight. Vitamin D can be found naturally in a small number of foods, including salmon, sardines and mackerel (oily fish). Commercially sold milk, fat spreads and some breakfast cereals are fortified with vitamin D.

    Many people are starting to wonder whether they should be slapping on so much sunscreen when going outdoors if sunlight is the main source of vitamin D, Dr. Amer explained. The problem is, no set amount of supplementation can raise vitamin D levels to 21 nanograms per milliliter because we do not all process vitamins in the same way.

    Amer and Qayyum found that if blood vitamin D levels are increased, the result is lower levels of CRP (c-reactive protein), a popular marker for cardiovascular inflammation.

    However, excessive vitamin D levels may be bad for you – any vitamin D levels above 21 nanograms per milliliter were found to be linked to an increase in CRP, which is associated with the hardening of blood vessels and a greater risk of developing cardiovascular problems.

    The team has also found a link between excess vitamin D and raised levels of homocysteine, which can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

    Dr. Amer urges people to check with their doctors before considering vitamin D supplements – ideally, they should have their vitamin D blood levels checked.

    Even if your doctor recommends supplementation for you, you should beware when reading the labels. A report published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that many OTC vitamin D supplements have less of the vitamin than their labels claim (OTC means “over-the-counter”, non-prescription).

    Amer added:

    “Most healthy people are unlikely to find that supplementation prevents cardiovascular diseases or extends their lives,” and there is no consensus among doctors on what is the right level of vitamin D in the blood for healthy people.

    There are a lot of myths out there and not enough data


     

    Vitamin E supplements ‘raise risk of prostate cancer by 20%… and have NO health benefits’

    • Vitamin E and selenium supplements do not benefit health, say scientists
    • Claim large doses of both can raise risk of prostate cancer by 17 per cent
    • This can rise to 91 per cent in men with high levels of selenium in body
    • Vitamin E, found in nuts and spinach, is taken to boost immune system

    Men should not take high doses of vitamin E or selenium supplements because they have no health benefits and increase the risk of prostate cancer by up to a fifth, scientists have claimed.

    Vitamin E, naturally found in nuts, spinach and broccoli, is taken to boost the body’s immune system and the mineral selenium, found in fish and meat, is taken to ward off heart disease.

    But US researchers claim large doses of both can increase the risk of prostate cancer by 17 per cent.

    Discovery: Men should not take high doses of vitamin E (pictured) or selenium supplements because they have no health benefits and increase the risk of prostate cancer by up to a fifth, U.S. researchers have claimed

    This can rise to as much as 91 per cent if a man already has high levels of selenium before taking supplements.

    The warning centres on high-dose supplements, with researchers saying there appear to be no risks from taking a standard multivitamin.


    Vitamin E, naturally found in nuts, spinach and broccoli, is taken to boost the body¿s immune systemVitamin E, naturally found in nuts, spinach and broccoli, is taken to boost the body¿s immune system

    Source: Vitamin E, naturally found in spinach, left, and nuts, right, is taken to boost the body’s immune system

    Neither selenium nor vitamin E supplementation confers any known benefits, only risks.’

    The study looked in detail at a past trial, carried out to test whether extra vitamin E and selenium could help prevent prostate cancer.

    But instead, researchers discovered more cases of prostate cancer among men taking 400 international units (IU) of vitamin E daily than those taking a placebo.

    This is the equivalent of 363mg a day, which is 30 times the recommended daily amount.

    Men with low levels of selenium were the most affected by extra vitamin E – with the supplements raising their prostate cancer risk by 63 per cent.

    ‘Many people think that dietary supplements are helpful or at the least, innocuous. That is not true’

    Dr Alan Kristal

    Dr Kristal said: ‘Many people think that dietary supplements are helpful or at the least, innocuous. This is not true.

    ‘We know from several other studies that some high-dose dietary supplements – that is, supplements that provide far more than the daily recommended intakes of micronutrients – increase cancer risk.’

    More than 35,000 healthy men in their 50s and older took part in the initial trial, which began in 2001. Further investigation of this data, published yesterday in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, revealed the latest findings.

    In the UK, the recommended daily amount of vitamin E is 12mg, and most multivitamin pills contain between 15mg and 30mg.

    However, the UK Expert Group on Vitamins and Minerals says the upper ‘safe’ limit is between 700 and 800mg a day – twice as much as taken in the trial.

    Dr Matthew Hobbs, deputy director of research at Prostate Cancer UK, said more studies were needed, but added: ‘If men are concerned about their prostate cancer risk, rather than worrying about selenium  and vitamin E supplements, they should talk to a GP.’

Too Much , Too Little :

What is Salt?

We’ll adopt a schoolmasterly tone at this point. Salt (NaCl) is a natural mineral made up of white cube-shaped crystals composed of two elements, sodium and chlorine.

It is translucent, colourless, odourless (officially, though we think you can smell the freshness of the sea in one of our boxes) and has a distinctive and characteristic taste.

Salt occurs naturally in many parts of the world in mineral form and has been mined for thousands of years. Chemically, sea salt is the same. Gastronomically, it’s very different.

Salt – Essential for Life

An important component of the human diet

Salt is essential for life (we couldn’t agree more) and as the body can’t produce it itself, has to be provided in small white boxes (or similar). Without it, our bodies become chemically unbalanced, our muscles and nervous system cease to function and eventually we die. We die eventually anyway of course, but salt keeps us going for a bit longer.

All our body fluids are salty. Blood, sweat, tears, saliva and the general consensus among experts is that a healthy adult should aim towards a daily intake of five or six grams of salt to maintain a good balance.

Salt – An amazing history

Salt is a remarkable thing. An essential element in the diet of not only humans but of animals, and even of many plants, it is one of the most effective and most widely used of all food preservatives. Its industrial, medical and other uses are almost without number (ie. around 14,000). In fact, salt has been such an important element of life that it has been the subject of many stories and is frequently referenced in fairy tales. Some cultures ascribe magical powers to salt.
Salt served as money at various times and places, and the quest for salt has been the cause of bitter warfare. Offering bread and salt to visitors is, in many cultures, a traditional sign of hospitality.
Saltmaking encompasses much of the history of Europe since Roman times. Medieval European records document saltmaking technologies and concessions. You can sound particularly impressive at dinner parties by throwing on one of these salty historical facts:

  • Venice rose to economic greatness through its salt monopoly
  • Halle is Germany’s “Salt City” and an “old salt route” connected German salt mines to shipping ports on the Baltic.
  • Saltmaking was important in the Balkans where Tuzla, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, is actually named “tuz,” the Turkish word for salt. Your guests may have nodded off by this point.
  • Salzburg, Austria, has made its four salt mines major tourist attractions. Do go.
  • The successful Dutch blockade of the Iberian saltworks led directly to Spanish bankruptcy and the undoing of Philip II.
  • France has always been a salt producer and has a “salt road” of its own, along the Mediterranean coast.

At which point, it’s probably time to bring this potted history of all things salt to a close. There’s much, much more to tell, so do let us know if you’d like some more flakes from the salt-encrusted archives.

Saxon Salt MakingSaxon salt making

According to legend

[Source taken from SaltSense]

                                                     Points to Remember :
  1. You would die without taking in any salt
  2. Our body’s don’t make salt you “must” consume it
  3. Salt is one of the 5 basic human taste senses [ sour, sweet , savoury, bitter]
  4. Salt regulates fluid levels , nerves , muscles and blood P .
  5. Salt gives food taste  Job 6 : 6 [Niv] bible
  6. Salt preserves food
  7. Animal tissue contains more salt than plant tissue .
  8. Table salt is refined and has chemicals
  9.  Sea salt and Himalayan contains trace minerals
  10. “Too much” salt causes fluid retention [ Hypertension]  high blood P
  11. “Too little” salt [ Hyponatremia ] reduces body functions
                                                                        Thoughts :
 Salt is good for you   Lk 13 : 44 [ Niv] bible
 It’s all about moderation or balance
 You do not need to use the salt shaker because most foods are salted or have salt in them .
Sea or Himalayan salt  is  best because it’s chemical, additive free and contains trace minerals  .
Eating Pork lunch meats included  [ which is cured and loaded with salt , is a big cause of high blood P as well as using the salt shaker ] .
It makes no sense to buy food items without salt  ie;  [ butter] See PTR [above]  number “4”.
Salt intake should be around 1200 to 1500mg or 3g a day .

Dangers

Too much sodium in the body is a key contributor to hypertension, a condition characterized by high blood pressure. Within the body, water follows sodium in and out of cells and tissues. When a high amount of sodium accumulates in the bloodstream, water rushes into the bloodstream as well. As the volume of blood increases, the pressure within the blood vessels also increases — resulting in high blood pressure. Over time, high blood pressure can lead to cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke and kidney damage.

Pair it With Potassium

If you think your diet might be high in sodium, indulge in potassium-rich foods. Although additional research is necessary to determine the exact link between the nutrients, potassium seems to lessen the dangerous effects of sodium. Foods high in potassium include bananas, potatoes, squash, spinach, raisins, cantaloupe, beans and lentils.

The Surprising Health Benefits of Cheese

Cheese lovers everywhere cheer.

It’s easy to lump in cheese with cake, bread, and other waistline offenders. Not so fast, though: Although some dairy products might pack on pounds, many cheeses are actually good for you in moderation, as part of a balanced diet. (Read: This isn’t permission to eat a wedge of cheese for lunch, with a chaser of cheesecake.) Here are a few tasty morsels of information from nutritionist Karen Ansel, R.D.N., coauthor of Healthy in a Hurry: Simple, Wholesome Recipes for Every Meal of the Day; her insights will help you indulge in all the right ways.

Cheese can help you stay slim.

“Cheese may help you stay slim thanks to a substance called butyrate, found in many cheeses,” says Ansel. Gruyère, blue, and Gouda, Parmesan, and cheddar all have high amounts. “Research suggests that it may help boost metabolism. These cheeses also encourage the bacteria in our gut to make even more butyrate, so it’s a double win.”

Cheese may help prevent cancer.

This news is easy to digest: “One study found that the butyrate in cheese can protect against colon cancer by nourishing the cells of your colon,” says Ansel, “and by reducing that inflammation that can damage the colon over time.”

Cheese is whey good for building muscle.

“Protein-packed cheese is a smart snack for building muscle,” Ansel says. Protein is made of amino acids, which are the building blocks of muscle tissue. “For the best protein boost, try ricotta cheese,” says Ansel. “It’s one of the single best sources of whey protein, which is especially advantageous for muscle building. And it tastes a lot better than a gritty protein powder.”

Cheese is good for your bones.

A strong case for Parmesan and cheddar: “Since it’s made from milk, cheese is packed with calcium to help keep your bones strong,” Ansel says. “Snacking on just one ounce of Parmesan gives you 336 milligrams of calcium, and the same amount of cheddar offers 216 milligrams.” That’s a good portion of the day’s needs: Most adult men require 1,000 milligrams of calcium daily.

Cheese is good for your teeth, too.

Chew on this: “Eating cheese can keep your teeth healthier thanks to calcium and phosphorus,” Ansel says. “These two minerals fight the lactic acid that’s naturally present in our mouths and prevent it from breaking down tooth enamel.” You need that enamel to chew food without damage to the teeth, as well as to prevent cavities and erosion.

Cheese could ward off diabetes.

Go on, upgrade from hamburger to cheeseburger. Those same butyrate-dense cheeses may help protect against type 2 diabetes. “Although research in this area is just starting to emerge, a study in the journal Diabetes found that mice that ate chow containing added butyrate had insulin levels that were 50 percent lower than mice who ate the regular kind. Experts suspect that butyrate may help human bodies use insulin more effectively too, in its managing of blood-sugar levels.”

Cheese is a healthy complement to your meal.

Here’s the skinny: There are many cheeses that are light in both fat and calories that are an excellent addition to your meal. “If you’re trying to cut fat and calories, stick with feta. It’s the skinniest cheese around, with only 6 grams of fat and 70 calories per ounce,” says Ansel. (We like putting it on top of our noontime spinach salads. “Mozzarella is the next best thing to feta, with only 85 calories and 6 grams of fat per ounce,” she adds. Pair it with tangy roasted peppers in a salad, or Caprese-style with basil and tomatoes. Ansel’s third pick is Swiss cheese: “It boasts only 106 calories and 8 grams of fat per ounce. Try shredding it into an omelet with asparagus or spinach.”

Even the lactose-intolerant can eat certain cheeses.

If lactose does a number on your stomach, you can still eat certain cheeses. “When natural cheeses including Parmesan, cheddar, Gouda, Swiss, mozzarella, and Brie are made, the manufacturing and aging processes remove almost all of the lactose,” says Ansel. Try just a bit: “One ounce of these cheeses contains less than a gram of lactose, compared with the 12 grams you’d get from a glass of milk.”

It’s the best comfort food. No debate.

“Everybody needs comfort foods now and then,” Ansel says. “So if you’re going to reach for one, go for cheese, which has some big nutrition benefits compared with a pile of cookies or chips. But when you do, be sure to stick with a couple of small cubes and not a huge hunk of it. Those calories can add up quickly too.”


Eating cheese does not raise risk of heart attack or stroke, study finds

Consumption of even full-fat dairy products does not increase risk, international team of experts says

Eating cheese does not raise risk of heart attack or stroke, study finds

Consumption of even full-fat dairy products does not increase risk, international team of

Consuming cheese, milk and yoghurt – even full-fat versions – does not increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke, according to research that challenges the widely held belief that dairy products can damage health.

The findings, from an international team of experts, contradict the view that dairy products can be harmful because of their high saturated fat content. The experts dismiss that fear as “a misconception [and] mistaken belief”.

The results come from a new meta-analysis of 29 previous studies of whether dairy products increase the risk of death from any cause and from either serious heart problems or cardiovascular disease. The study concluded that such foodstuffs did not raise the risk of any of those events and had a “neutral” impact on human health.

“This meta-analysis showed there were no associations between total dairy, high- and low-fat dairy, milk and the health outcomes including all-cause mortality, coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease,” says the report, published in the European Journal of Epidemiology.

Ian Givens, a professor of food chain nutrition at Reading University, who was one of the researchers, said: “There’s quite a widespread but mistaken belief among the public that dairy products in general can be bad for you, but that’s a misconception. While it is a widely held belief, our research shows that that’s wrong.

“There’s been a lot of publicity over the last five to 10 years about how saturated fats increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and a belief has grown up that they must increase the risk, but they don’t.”

However, the government’s health advisers urged consumers to continue to exercise caution about eating too many products high in saturated fat and to stick to low-fat versions instead.

“Dairy products form an important part of a healthy balanced diet; however, many are high in saturated fat and salt. We’re all consuming too much of both, increasing our risk of heart disease,” said a spokesman for Public Health England. “We recommend choosing lower-fat varieties of milk and dairy products or eating smaller amounts to reduce saturated fat and salt in the diet.”

Givens and colleagues from Reading, Copenhagen University in Denmark and Wageningen University in the Netherlands analysed 29 studies involving 938,465 participants from around the world undertaken over the last 35 years, including five done in the UK.

“No associations were found for total (high-fat/low-fat) dairy and milk with the health outcomes of mortality, CHD or CVD,” they said. In fact, they added, fermented dairy products may potentially slightly lower the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Doctors, public health experts and official healthy eating guidelines have for many years identified saturated fats as potentially harmful for heart and cardiovascular health and advised consumers to minimise their intake.

That has led to consumers increasingly buying lower-fat versions of dairy products. For example, 85% of all milk sold in the UK is now semi-skimmed or skimmed.

Givens said consumers were shunning full-fat versions of cheese, milk or yoghurt in the mistaken view that they could harm their health. Young people, especially young women, were now often drinking too little milk as a result of that concern, which could damage the development of their bones and lead to conditions in later life including osteoporosis, or brittle bones, he said. Consuming too little milk can deprive young people of calcium.

Pregnant women who drank too little milk could be increasing the risk of their child having neuro-developmental difficulties, which could affect their cognitive abilities and stunt their growth, Givens added.

The most recent National Diet and Nutrition Survey, the government’s occasional snapshot of eating habits, found that dairy products, including butter, accounted for the highest proportion of saturated fat consumption in British diets – 27%, compared with meat’s 24%. But if butter was not counted then dairy products together were the second largest source of saturated fat, at 22%.

Saturated fat is a vital part of diet. The NDNS found that adults typically got 34.6% of their total energy from fats as a whole, just below the 35% the government recommends. However, while total fat consumption was just within target, saturated fats still made up an unhealthily large proportion of total food energy – 12.6%, against the recommended maximum of 11%.

Givens said: “Our meta-analysis included an unusually large number of participants. We are confident that our results are robust and accurate.”

The research was part-funded by the three pro-dairy groups – Global Dairy Platform, Dairy Research Institute and Dairy Australia – but they had no influence over it, the paper said. Givens is an adviser to the Food Standards Agency.

Bible Verses about Cheese  1 Sam 17 : 18 ,  11 Sam 17 : 29 , Job 10 : 10

No one’s drinking” whole “milk or eating cheese made from “whole” milk  and more people than ever are overweight and having heart attacks . Think about it !!!

Don’t believe or let anyone tell you whole milk especially “grass” fed or cheese from whole milk is unhealthy,  it’s tremendous for one’s health . I am living proof  . I drink like a quart or more of whole milk a day and tons of cheese and my health is great at almost 60 .

Remember just about everything you read or hear on T.V. the internet is a lie or misinformation,  as Isaiah the great prophet of God predicted for our modern times   Isa 59 : 15 [Niv] bible .

“7” Super Bible Foods :

The 7 “Super Foods” of the Bible

from Beliefnet.com Health

Trying to eat healthy? Start by opening your Bible to Deuteronomy 8:8, where the Israelites are promised “a good land…, a land of wheat and barley, of vines, figs, and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey.” The ancients might not have known the word “antioxidant,” but they were onto something with this list of bible foods. Explore this gallery to find out exactly how on-target they were with these “super foods.”

Bible Food #1 – Wheat

This grain, which is found in everything from bread to pasta to cakes, is healthier when it is refined as little as possible. Whole-wheat products (those that are certified 100% whole wheat) contain 30 percent of your recommended daily fiber intake, as well as high levels of manganese and magnesium. A diet rich in whole grains is also thought to increase your energy level and lower your risk of type-2 diabetes, gallstones, and other health issues.

Bible Food #2 – Barley

Another whole grain, barley can be found in breads and cereals, as well as in hearty winter soups. High in fiber, barley is good for intestinal health and can lower cholesterol and reduce your risk of colon cancer and type-2 diabetes if eaten regularly. Barley also contains trace amounts of copper, which have been shown to help reduce the symptoms of arthritis.

Bible Food #3 – Grapes

Everyone knows that grape juice and red wine are tasty—but healthy? Grapes contain nutritional compounds called flavonoids, which are believed to reduce your risk of blood clots and protect your body from damage by the “free radicals” found in LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol. Rich in antioxidants, grapes may provide protection against cardiovascular disease, particularly in women.

Bible Food #4 – Figs

These sweet fruits, eaten either dried or fresh, are high in potassium, a mineral that helps control blood pressure. They are also high in dietary fiber, which may help you lose weight, and they are a fruit source of calcium, which can help preserve bone density. Fig leaves, which are not typically eaten but can be made into an extract, are thought to help lower insulin levels in diabetics.

Bible Food #5 – Pomegranate

These strange-looking seed fruits are back in vogue as health-giving super-foods, particularly in juice form. The fruits are rich in antioxidants, which prevent LDL cholesterol from doing its damage, and it helps prevent blood clots by keeping blood platelets from clumping together. Pomegranates may also help reduce the risk of breast cancer and lessen the symptoms of arthritis.

Bible Food #6 – Olive Oil

Olives, and the extra-virgin oil that is made from a single pressing of the fruit, contain many of the antioxidants that are thought to protect against the oxidation of LDL cholesterol compounds. They also are high in monounsaturated fatty acids, which are called “the healing fats” because they lower the effects of “bad” cholesterol while raising “good” cholesterol levels. High in vitamin E, olive oil also is thought to protect against colon cancer, and it is helpful in fighting gastritis and other stomach ailments.

Bible Food #7 – Honey

Raw honey, in addition to being a natural sweetener, is replete with antioxidants and is considered to be an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal substance. It is thought to have tumor-fighting properties, and may help prevent colon cancer. The daily consumption of a spoonful of honey is said to increase antioxidant levels in the blood, and is the healthiest sweetener for type-2 diabetics. Honey also may have wound-healing and muscle-regenerating properties.

The” Perfect” food :

Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

  1]  Egg  :    an oval or round object laid by a female bird, reptile, fish, or invertebrate, usually containing a developing embryo. The eggs of birds are enclosed in a chalky shell, while those of reptiles are in a leathery membrane

Eggs are laid by female animals of many different species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, and have been eaten by humans for thousands of years.[1] Bird and reptile eggs consist of a protective eggshell, albumen (egg white), and vitellus (egg yolk), contained within various thin membranes. The most popular choice for egg consumption are chicken eggs. Other popular choices for egg consumption are duck, quail, roe, and caviar.

 

Top 10 Health Benefits of Eating Eggs

Young Woman in a Yellow Shirt, Holding an EggEggs are among the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.”They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet.Here are 10 health benefits of eggs that have been confirmed in human studies.

1. Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious

Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet.

A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken.

A single large boiled egg contains (1):

  • Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
  • Folate: 5% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA.
  • Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA.
  • Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
  • Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc.

This is coming with 77 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats.

Eggs also contain various other trace nutrients that are important for health.

Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

If you can get your hands on pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs, then these are even better. They have more Omega-3s and are much higher in Vitamin A and E (2, 3).

Bottom Line: Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient we need. Omega-3 enriched and/or pastured eggs are even healthier.

2. Eggs Are High in Cholesterol, But They Don’t Adversely Affect Blood Cholesterol

Egg

It is true that eggs are high in cholesterol.

In fact, a single egg contains 212 mg, which is over half of the recommended daily intake of 300 mg.

However… it’s important to keep in mind that cholesterol in the diet doesn’t necessarily raise cholesterol in the blood (4, 5).

The liver actually produces large amounts of cholesterol every single day. When we eat more eggs, the liver just produces less cholesterol instead, so it evens out (6, 7).

The response to egg consumption varies between individual (8):

  • In 70% of people, eggs don’t raise cholesterol at all.
  • In the other 30% (termed “hyper responders”), eggs can mildly raise Total and LDL cholesterol.

However, as I will outline later in the article, the situation is a bit more complicated than that and these changes are actually beneficial.

(Exceptions… people with genetic disorders like familial hypercholesterolemia or a gene type called ApoE4 may want to minimize or avoid eggs.).

Bottom Line: Eggs are high in cholesterol, but eating eggs does not have adverse effects on cholesterol in the blood for the majority of people.

3. Eggs Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol

HDL stands for High Density Lipoprotein. It is often known as the “good” cholesterol (9).

People who have higher levels of HDL usually have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and various health problems (10, 11, 12, 13).

Eating eggs is a great way to increase HDL.

In one study, 2 eggs per day for 6 weeks increased HDL levels by 10% (14, 15, 16).

Bottom Line: Egg consumption consistently leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.

4. Eggs Contain Choline – an Important Nutrient That Most People Don’t Get Enough of

Choline is a nutrient that most people don’t even know exists.

Yet, it is an incredibly important substance and is often grouped with the B vitamins.

Choline is used to build cell membranes and has a role in producing signalling molecules in the brain, along with various other functions (17).

Dietary surveys have shown that about 90% of people in the U.S. are getting less than the recommended amount of choline (18).

Whole eggs are an excellent source of choline. A single egg contains more than 100 mg of this very important nutrient.

Bottom Line: Eggs are among the best dietary sources of choline, a nutrient that is incredibly important but most people aren’t getting enough of.

5. Eggs Turn LDL Cholesterol From Small, Dense to Large, Linked to a Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

LDL cholesterol is generally known as the “bad” cholesterol.

It is well known that having high levels of LDL is linked to an increased risk of heart disease (19, 20).

But what many people don’t realize is that there are subtypes of LDL that have to do with the size of the particles.

There are small, dense LDL particles and then there are large LDL particles.

Many studies have shown that people who have predominantly small, dense LDL particles have a higher risk of heart disease than people who have mostly large LDL particles (21, 22, 23).

Even if eggs tend to mildly raise LDL cholesterol in some people, studies show that the particles change from small, dense to large LDL… which is a good thing (24, 25).

Bottom Line: Egg consumption appears to change the pattern of LDL particles from small, dense LDL (bad) to large LDL, which is linked to a reduced heart disease risk.

6. Eggs Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health

One of the consequences of aging is that eyesight tends to get worse.

There are several nutrients that help counteract some of the degenerative processes that can affect our eyes.

Two of these are called Lutein and Zeaxanthin, powerful antioxidants that tend to build up in the retina of the eye (26, 27).

Studies show that consuming adequate amounts of these nutrients can significantly reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration, two very common eye disorders (28, 29, 30).

Egg yolks actually contain large amounts of both Lutein and Zeaxanthin.

In one controlled trial, eating just 1.3 egg yolks per day for 4.5 weeks increased blood levels of Lutein by 28-50% and Zeaxanthin by 114-142% (31).

Eggs are also high in Vitamin A, which deserves another mention here. Vitamin A deficiency is the most common cause of blindness in the world (32).

Bottom Line: The antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin are very important for eye health and can help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. Eggs are high in both of them.

7. In the Case of Omega-3 or Pastured Eggs, They Lower Triglycerides as Well

Of course, it doesn’t just matter what we eat… it also matters what the foods that we eat, ate.

In this regard, not all eggs are created equal. Their nutrient composition varies depending on how the hens were fed and raised.

Eggs from hens that are raised on pasture and/or fed Omega-3 enriched feeds tend to be much higher in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids are known to reduce blood levels of triglycerides, a well known risk factor for heart disease (33, 34).

Studies show that consuming Omega-3 enriched eggs is a very effective way to reduce triglycerides in the blood. In one of the studies, just 5 omega-3 enriched eggs per week for 3 weeks reduced triglycerides by 16-18% (35, 36).

Bottom Line: Omega-3 enriched and pastured eggs contain significant amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids. Eating these types of eggs is an effective way to reduce blood triglycerides.

8. Eggs Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios

Proteins are the main building blocks of the human body.

They’re used to make all sorts of tissues and molecules that serve both structural and functional purposes.

Getting enough protein in the diet is very important and studies show that currently recommended amounts may be too low.

Well… eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams.

Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so our bodies are well equipped to make full use of the protein in them.

Eating adequate protein can help with weight loss, increase muscle mass, lower blood pressure and optimize bone health… to name a few (37, 38, 39, 40).

Bottom Line: Eggs are fairly high in quality animal protein and contain all the essential amino acids that humans need.

9. Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke

Two Eggs, Broken and Whole

For many decades, eggs have been unfairly demonized.

It has been claimed that because of the cholesterol in them, they must be bad for the heart.

Many studies published in recent years have examined the relationship between egg consumption and the risk of heart disease.

In one review of 17 studies with a total of 263,938 participants, no association was found between egg consumption and heart disease or stroke (41).

Many other studies have led to the same conclusion (42, 43).

However… some studies have found that people with diabetes who eat eggs have an increased risk of heart disease (44).

Whether the eggs are actually causing the increased risk isn’t known, because these types of studies can only show statistical association. They can not prove that eggs caused anything.

It is possible that diabetics who eat eggs are less health conscious, on average.

On a low-carb diet, which is by far the best diet for diabetics, eating eggs leads to improvements in risk factors for heart disease (45, 46).

Bottom Line: Many studies have looked at egg consumption and the risk of heart disease and found no association. However, some studies have found an increased risk in people with type 2 diabetes.

10. Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight

A Bowl Full of Brown Eggs

Eggs are incredibly fulfilling.

They are a high protein food… but protein is by far the most fulfilling macronutrient (47).

Eggs score high on a scale called the Satiety Index, which measures the ability of foods to induce feelings of fullness and reduce subsequent calorie intake (48).

In one study of 30 overweight women, eating eggs instead of bagels for breakfast increased feelings of fullness and made them automatically eat fewer calories for the next 36 hours (49).

In another study, replacing a bagel breakfast with an egg breakfast caused significant weight loss over a period of 8 weeks (50).

Take Home Message

The studies clearly show that eating up to 3 whole eggs per day is perfectly safe.

There is no evidence that going beyond that is harmful, it is just “uncharted territory” as it hasn’t been studied.

I personally eat about 3-6 whole eggs per day and my health has never been better.

Really… eggs are pretty much nature’s perfect food.

On top of everything else, they are also cheap, easy to prepare, go with almost any food and taste awesome.

[Bible verse about eggs]

Luke 11:12  (NIV]12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?

Thoughts :

Fasting :

Fasting is a willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast (dry fasting) is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period, usually a period of 24 hours, or a number of days.

Points to remember :

1] Fasting [ cleansing] from toxins starts from the top down,  that’s why you may get a headache.  If the headache gets “severe” stop the fast .
2] Don’t fast if on medications .

3] Don’t exercise intensely during a fast .
4] Don’t eat foods that take longer to digest like red meat[ right after] breaking the fast . Go with fruits/ veg 1st
5] Don’t fast if you have serious health problems . Eat right for like a year then start fasting .
6] Don’t fast too much,  absolute fast [ no food or water]  no more than 3 days consecutively  . Est 4 : 16 [Niv] bible .

       Thoughts :

  1. The truest fast which is most biblical is no food or water for a 24 hr period  or longer  Est 4 : 15, 16 , Acts 9 : 9 , Ez 10 : 6 , Ex 34 : 28 [ Niv] bible usually evening to evening or sunset to sunset  .  
  2. You can start out fasting like 8 hrs then say 16 then 24 no food or water
  3. It’s great to fast 1 day a month to clean out toxins and help the bowels catch up .
  4. You will probable move your bowels at least one time during fasts of one full day 24 hrs,  or longer , which is great,  that means your bowels are catching up to what you have digested .
  5. Do” not” try Moses’s fast Ex 34 : 28 that was supernatural .
  6. Fasting without water is “way harder” because the body is made up of like 65% water .
  7.  In general you can go only about 5  to 7 days without a drop of water before death , some people can go longer,  everyone is different .
  8. You can go roughly  “weeks” without food depending on how much body fat one has, it can vary greatly
  9.  A burlesque on fasting is eating just certain foods , ie ; vegetables only .

    Be careful of juice fasting  frequently for long periods its way overrated and can ruin one’s health . I ran into a friend who knew one of my best friends , and he said that he told him he ruined his health juice fasting .
