FOOD, WHAT YOU OUGHT TO KNOW

Videos which show what corporation have done to our food supply, and the results.  It all starts with corporate ethics, which I call tobacco ethics.  Corporations have a prima facie duty to maximize profit; thus human consequences are measured by its effect upon the corporate bottom line.  Taking into account the perverse system of ethics, the consequence naturally follow.

Note:  Pharma has made billions treating the cholesterol myth with statins and now a new family of drugs is on the market.  These drugs do not prevent or reverse atherosclerosis and thus its health consequence.  Lowering serum cholesterol does not lower the risk of death—though their myth claims it does.  Pharma has made billions more treating the resultant hypertension and coronary heart disease.  The rise in the health problems started cigarettes and later the high-carb diet (thus low saturated fats).  These accelerate a process involving pathogens living within the artery walls.  The way to reduce risk for atherosclerosis is to eat a healthy diet, exercise, take the supplements I listed, and don’t smoke.

Healthful drugs opposed by Pharma

Why You Still Need Estradiol (Estrogen) 5 min, 153 views, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAfq2v_9WG4 Very good intro

Nothing of quality on aspirin, CoQ10, testosterone and estrogen—not science but marketing.  Beware of testosterone boosters, bio-identical testosterone, and bio-identical estrogen, which aren’t bio-identical (only similar for some functions, mimics) are untested and thus of uncertain value and risks.  Some mimics by occupying hormone receptors block the hormone action or turn it on when it should be off.  The leading progestin, MPA (a progesterone mimic) used in the leading HRT Prempro has caused millions of deaths by blocking the benefits of estradiol resulting in increased breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, thrombi, and coronary events.  Prempro was knowingly selected by the FDA in their mammoth trial to “prove” HRT is dangerous.  There are numerous studies which want of the health hazards of both natural and man-made chemicals that are sex hormone mimics.  Dr. John R. Lee Progesterone, 56 min, 13,000 listeners, no video, only voice, is on natural progesterone http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBvH1zktooQ .  A mountain of journal articles show the benefits of both estradiol and testosterone.  Recently oral progesterone has come to market, and undoubted is better than the synthetic progestins, especially MPA.  Aspirin has hundreds of older journal articles show it many benefits, but like hormones and CoQ10, it would cut deeply into pharma’s profits.  There are many quality books on them based on the earlier research, and some recent research.
