Consuming grains and the effects on the body
“Sixty years ago, we had the agricultural revolution or the green revolution, and grain farming became very easy. Every government-subsidized grain farming, direct subsidy, fertilizer subsidy, food subsidy, and grains are the cheapest pre-packaged convenience foods. When is the last time you had a meal or a snack without a grain-based product? So the previous 60 years, it had been happening. Fifty years ago, we started the obesity epidemic. Ten years later, we started the Diabetic epidemic. We are in the cancer epidemic that is all a continuation of the same problem. We are putting more Glucose into the system than the system can tolerate, and it is coming out differently in different people.”
When you child has cancer
“when your child is diagnosed with cancer, you feel helpless. You are stressed; you’re anxious. You’re fearful. My position is most of that unhappiness and stress come from what you don’t know. If you understand it, then you are at least helping the child.
Otherwise, you are at the mercy of the doctor. Do you just follow without understanding what you are doing? Why are you? How can you help the child get over this? So that is the message in that book that you can be supportive. You can be an active parent, not only following the instruction, I’m not suggesting that you should not follow the instructions, but you can know more so that the number of medications used by the oncologist can be reduced.
That is 60% of the cancers; childhood cancer survivors will have complications in later life, which is directly proportional to the treatment dosage. So if we can reduce the treatment, you will get the reward later on down the line.”
What are statens and can they cause diabetes?
“The cell takes it and uses it for construction. If you use Statins, it incapacitates the workers producing the cholesterol molecule that works on the cholesterol line knocks out the workers. So there’s more, the production is reduced. The question you have to ask is then what happens to the raw material the liver was using? That is not going to be used for the construction of cholesterol. Where will they go? Of course, they can be made into fatty acids, and see your muscles are working all the time. Whether you know it or not, there is the tartness of the muscle tone for that. The muscle has to keep on producing energy. Even when you are sleeping, the muscle is still active.
The muscles can use this to produce either Glucose or fatty acids that regard your musculature like a hybrid engine in a car that can use either gasoline or electricity. So if there is a lot of fatty acid coming because the Staton is blocking the cholesterol production, the muscles can start using fatty acid to produce energy, leaving Glucose in the blood.
So over the long term, that person can develop diabetes.”
This episode is brought to you by PASSION BRANDS CBD.
This episode is brought to you by Passion Brands CBD. Passion Brands carries a very high-quality broad-spectrum CBD with zero THC and comes in tinctures (which for those that don’t know are drops taken sublingually under your tongue), soft gels, gummies, salve, and they even carry dog treats for your pup. Yes, there is even CBD for dogs, and it works wonders for those that need it.
For those of you who don’t know what CBD is, they offer a lot of education on their website, and you can learn how people are using it in their everyday lives for a variety of functions. I personally use CBD, and while I can’t vouch for everyone, it does assist me with focus and being more relaxed when I’m doing my work. I also take it at night sometimes for help with sleep, and when I hurt my back, the salve worked wonders, so I highly recommend it. Passion Brand CBD uses Nanoemulsion technology and C02 exaction (which is great). Their soft gels are water-soluble, and the CBD is allergy-friendly, including gluten-free.
They offer full COA (that’s, certificate of authenticity) lab results on their site and via QR code and are both tested in-house and by a third party to ensure optimal quality control. This means you can rest assured what they say is in the product is actually in it—nothing more and nothing less. You can find them at www.passion-brands.com, and I’ll also link all the social media in the show notes. Could you give them a look?
