The Real Truth About How NOT to DIE and DIE-IT!

20 Ways on How to Live Longer and Healthier – Free from ALL Sickness and Disease and Old Age

Have you heard about the ravages of acid rain in Australia and the loss of the coral reef or in Alaska and the loss of millions of pine trees or maybe you have heard about the oceans and the pH dropping because of acid rain. The cause is the result of toxic acidic carbon emissions in the global environment. Acid rain damages the leaves and needles on trees, reduces a tree’s ability to withstand cold, drought, disease and pests, and even inhibits or prevents plant reproduction. The oceans of the World are dying because of acidic carbon emissions from cars and cows. In an effort for the Earth and the oceans to stay alive and combat increased acidic pollution, as tree roots pull important nutrients such as calcium and magnesium from the soil and calcium and the oceans are pulling calcium and magnesium from the coral reefs and sodium from the ocean water increasing acidity. The extraction of alkaline minerals from the soil and water is necessary for all living things on the earth and oceans to stay alive and avoid sudden death. These alkaline nutrients help to balance the increased effects of acid rain, but as they become depleted from the soil or from the ocean, the trees’ and marine life’s ability to survive is strained and placed in certain danger of extinction. Just look at the pictures below and see what is happening to the forests of Denali, Alaska and the great barrier reef in Queensland, Australia. The forests in Alaska and the great barrier reef in Queensland, Australia are both headed towards irreversible extinction because of acid rain.

We Are All Subject to Acid Rain!

What if I told you that most ALL people living today are unknowingly doing similar things to their body? A highly acidic lifestyle and diet is like acid rain in our blood, interstitial fluids and intracellular fluids that constitutes over 65% of the whole body. While the body has an alkaline buffering system (headed up by the stomach) in place to ensure that the blood and the interstitial fluids stay slightly alkaline at 7.365 pH, the depletion of alkaline minerals from the bones, muscles and other parts of your body may leave YOU vulnerable to health issues leading to ALL sickness and disease.

What is pH – The Power of Hydrogen or Perfectly Healthy or Both?

The pH (potential of hydrogen) is the measurement of acid (a measurement of hydrogen ions or protons) or alkalinity (a measurement of reduced hydrogen or electrons) on a scale from 0 to 14 with a midpoint of 7. The lower the number the higher the acidity (or the greater the concentration of hydrogen ions or protons) based upon a logarithm to the power of negative 10! For example, the pH of a healthy ocean environment free from acid rain would be 8.350. If the ocean pH drops 1 point due to acid rain to a pH of 7.350, which is a 10 times drop in pH, all life as we know it in the oceans would die. In fact, if the ocean pH drops from 8.350 to 8.100, which is a .235 drop, ALL life in the oceans would die! That is all it takes for ALL marine life to cease in our Oceans! JUST a small drop of 2/10’s of 1 point for ALL life to end! Here is another very important example that I truly want you to understand. The healthy pH of the human blood and interstitial fluids which makes up 80 percent of ALL body fluids is 7.365. This pH of the blood and interstitial fluids is a dynamic and is always changing. How do I know this? Because Dr. Galina Migalko, MD, NMD and I are the only scientist in the World measuring and comparing the pH and chemistries of the blood against the pH and chemistries of the interstitium. This is critical to truly understand when you are moving toward metabolic alkalosis or metabolic acidosis and preventing and/or reversing any sickness and disease as well as determining the efficacy of any non-invasive or invasive treatments. In other words, are the treatments for any sickness and disease making you sicker or better, whether conventional or traditional? This can now be measured and determined with certainty.

Why is YOUR Stomach So Important to the pH of the Blood and Interstitum

So why does the body, primarily the stomach work so hard to maintain the delicate pH of the blood and interstitial fluids of the interstitium? Here is the most important answer YOU will read in YOUR life! If the blood and interstitial fluids drop below 7.100 from the ideal healthy pH of 7.365 you would go into a coma. When the blood and interstitial fluid pH drops to 6.900 you are DEAD! From what? Not global warming but from body warming or in other words acidosis! The key to avoid death is to maintain the alkaline design of the blood and interstitial fluids at a precise pH of 7.365 which can be measured without drawing one drop of blood or interstitial fluid. The technology is here and the science is real!

What is the Common Denominator of pH in Relationship to the Cause of ALL Sickness and Disease

This is the common denominator for ALL sickness and disease – ALL sickness and disease are caused by acidosis or acid rain or body warming! Therefore, there are NO specific diseases, there are ONLY specific disease or sickness conditions. All sickness and disease is caused by acid rain from within and is exactly what is happening in the oceans, the soils of our planet and in all humanity. Planetary and human sickness and disease is on the rise because of personal acidic lifestyles and dietary choices and because of ignorance. Name any disease and that disease or sickness is caused by metabolic, respiratory, gastrointestinal or environmental acidosis.

I hope you can see NOW how important it is to understand and then monitor your pH daily by having your your blood and interstitial fluids tested. Unfortunately, this new science and technology for testing the pH of the blood and interstitial fluids is limited Worldwide. (For more information concerning the testing of the blood and interstitial fluids or to make an appointment email: phmiraclelife@gmail.com) In the meantime, there is a simple, inexpensive and noninvasive way for testing the fluids of the interstitium, but not of the blood, for those of you who desire to monitor your interstitial fluid pH daily. You can test the pH of the morning urine, since this urine is a product of the interstitium and NOT of the blood, by using special pHydrion strips (www.phoreveryoung.com). When you measure the pH of your urine using these special pHydrion strips it is important to achieve each morning a pH of at least 7.300 by following the suggested lifestyle and diet as described below. When you are testing your morning urine, which is the most acidic time of the day, you are testing the pH of the interstitial fluids which makes up over 60 percent of the body fluids (25 liters). You can also test your saliva using the same special pHydrion strips. When you are testing your saliva pH you are testing your body reserves available for buffering acid rain. Both the urine and saliva pH should be at least 7.300 and must be tested daily as you follow the pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet in order to achieve an ideal pH for “Perfect Health!”

What Does the Stomach Have to Do With pH

An acidic pH of the blood and then interstitial fluids is what causes acid reflux—a condition in which the stomach creates when it is trying to buffer dietary acids from your toxic acidic food or drink ingested or metabolic acids from all functions of the body or respiratory acids from your respiratory system to maintain the pH of the blood and interstitial fluids at a delicate pH of 7.365. The following is the stomach chemistry as it creates sodium bicarbonate to buffer excess acid rain on your blood, interstitial fluids and intercellular fluids: H20 (water) + NaCl (salt) + C02 (carbon dioxide) = NaHC03 (sodium bicarbonate) + HCL (hydrochloric acid).

This may be the first time you have ever heard this, but I have been saying this for many years, “the stomach DOES NOT DIGEST FOOD it ALKALIZES FOOD and protects ALL of our body fluids, organs and tissues from dietary, metabolic, respiratory and environmental acidosis! In other words, the stomach is an organ of contribution and NOT an organ of digestion. Eat any food without chewing it, like a piece of corn and see what happens. The corn comes out of your anus the same way it went into your mouth. The stomach digests nothing. The hydrochloric acid in your stomach is a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production for buffering acid rain or acidic waste from what you eat, what you drink, what you breath and what you think. This is why when an athlete goes into lactic acidosis they throw-up to rid their body of all the hydrochloric acid build-up in the gastric pits of the stomach. You see the body is working hard to buffer the increased lactic acid from increased metabolism so the athlete doesn’t die from acidic rain from a declining pH in the blood and interstitium. Even when a pregnant woman throws-up (generally in her first trimester) her stomach is producing sodium bicarbonate to buffer the acidic loads in her and her unborn child’s blood and interstitium. The increased need for alkalinity during pregnancy is significant and is NOT understood or even considered by medical savants. They think, unknowingly that the body just takes care of the pH of the blood and tissues and that what you eat, what you drink, what you breath, and what you think cannot effect this delicate pH balance. You see, morning sickness is nothing more than increased acids from diet, respiration and metabolism! It requires twice the energy to make a baby and with that the pregnant Mother has increased acid rain. So I want you to understand that the stomach’s main purpose is to maintain the alkaline design of the body to keep it alive. That is IT! Get IT?

To learn more about the physiology of the stomach read the following book. You can order this book online at the following link:

How is acid/base created in the body?

a) The parietal or cover cells of the stomach split the sodium chloride of the blood. The sodium is used to bind with water and carbon dioxide to form the alkaline salt, sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3. The biochemistry is: H20 + CO2 + NaCl = NaHCO3 + HCL. This is why I call the stomach an alkalizing organ NOT an organ of digestion. The stomach DOES NOT digest the food or liquids you ingest it alkalizes the food and liquid you ingest.

b) For each molecule of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) made, a molecule of hydrochloric acid (HCL) is made and secreted into the so-called digestive system – specifically, the stomach (the gastric pits in the stomach) – to be eliminated. Therefore HCL is an acidic waste product of sodium bicarbonate production created by the stomach to alkalize the food and liquids ingested and to maintain the delicate pH of the blood and interstitial fluids at a pH of 7.365.

c) The chloride ion from the sodium chloride (salt) binds to an acid or proton forming HCL as a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production. HCL has a pH of 1 and is highly toxic to the body and the cause of indigestion, acid reflux, ulcers and cancer. In fact HCL is in all pharmaceuticals and most dietary nutritional supplements.

d) When large amounts of acids, including HCL, enter the stomach from a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, such as meat and cheese, acid is withdrawn from the acid-base household. The organism would die if the resulting alkalosis – or NaHCO3 (base flood) or base surplus – created by the stomach was not taken up by the alkalophile glands (pancreas, gallbladder, Lieberkuhn glands in the liver and the Brunner glands between the pylorus and the junctions of the bile and pancreatic ducts), that need these quick bases in order to build up their strong sodium bicarbonate secretions. These glands and organs, once again are the stomach, pancreas, Brunner’s glands (between the pylorus and the junctions of the bile and pancreatic ducts, Lieberkuhn’s glands in the liver and its bile with its strong acid binding capabilities which it has to release on the highly acidic meat and cheese to buffer its strong acids of nitric, sulphuric, phosphoric, uric and lactic acids.

e) When a rich animal protein and dairy product meal is ingested, the stomach begins to manufacture and secrete sodium bicarbonate (NHCO3) to alkalize the acids from the food ingested. This causes a loss in the alkaline reserves and an increase in acid and/or HCL found in the gastric pits of the stomach. These acids and/or HCL are taken up by the blood which lowers blood plasma pH. The blood eliminates this increase in gastrointestinal acid by throwing it off into the Pishinger’s spaces or what recent scientist are calling the Interstitium pictured below.

 

f) The space enclosed by these finer and finer fibers is called the Pishinger’s space, or the spaces of the interstitium that contains the fluids that bath and feed each and every cell while carrying away the acidic waste from those same cells. There is no mention of this organ in American physiology or medical school text books. There is mention of the space but not of any organ that stores acids from metabolism, respiration, environment and diet, like the kidney. I call this organ the “pre-kidney” because it stores metabolic respiratory, environmental and gastrointestinal acids until they can be buffered and eliminated via the skin, urinary tract, or bowels.

g) After a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, the urine pH becomes alkaline.The ingestion of meat and cheese causes a reaction in acidic fashion in the organism by the production of sulfuric, phosphoric, nitric, uric, lactic, acetylaldehyde and ethanol acids, respectively, but also through the formation and excretion of base in the urine. Therefore eating meat and cheese causes a double loss of bases leading to tissue acidosis and eventual disease, especially inflammation and degenerative diseases.

h) During heavy exercise, if the the resulting lactic acid was not adsorbed by the collagen fibers, the specific acid catchers of the body, the organism would die. The total collection of these fibers is the largest organ of the body called SCHADE, the colloidal connective tissue organ or the interstitium. NO liquid exchange occurs between the blood and the parenchyma cells, or in reverse, unless it passes through this connective tissue organ or the interstitium. This organ connects and holds everything in our bodies in place. This organ is composed of ligaments, tendons, sinew, and the finer fibers that become the scaffolding that holds every single cell in our bodies in place. When acids are stored in this organ (just discovered by American science in 2018. Dr. Robert O. Young with Dr. Galina Migalko published their pH findings of the blood, interstitial fluids of the Interstitium and the intracellular fluids in 2015. Their publication is pictured below), which includes the muscles, inflammation and pain develop. The production of lactic acid is increased with the ingestion of milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and especially ice cream.

 

That is why I have stated for years, “acid is pain and pain is acid.” You cannot have one without the other. This is the beginning of latent tissue acidosis leading to irritation, inflammation and degeneration of the cells, tissues and organs.

i) The more acidity created from eating meat, cheese, milk or ice cream the more gastrointestinal acids are adsorbed into the the collagen fibers to be neutralized and the less sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 that is taken up by the alkalophile glands. The larger the potential difference between the adsorbed acids and the amount of NaHCO3 generated with each meal, the more or less alkaline are the alkalophile glands like the pancreas, gallbladder, pylorus glands, blood, etc. The acid binding power of the connective tissue, the blood, and the alkalophile glands depends on its alkali reserve, which can be determined through blood, urine, and saliva pH testing, including live and dried blood analysis. (Currently we are the only two scientist in the World that are doing non-invasive testing of the stomach, blood, interstitium and intracellular fluid pH with results in less than 15 minutes) The saliva pH is an indication of alkali reserves in the alkalophile glands and the urine pH is an indication of the pH of the fluids that surround the cells or the Pishinger’s space.

 

j) The iso-structure of the blood maintains the pH of the blood by pushing off gastrointestinal or metabolic acids into the connective tissue or the Pishinger’s space or the Interstitium. The blood gives to the urine the same amount of acid that it receives from the tissues and liver so it can retain its iso-form. A base deficiency is always related to the deterioration of the deposit ability of the connective tissues or the Pishinger’s space or interstitial fluid spaces. As long as the iso-structure of the blood is maintained, the urine – which originates from the blood – remains a faithful reflected image of the acid-base regulation, not of the blood, but of the tissues. The urine therefore is an excretion product of the connective tissues or the interstitium, not the blood. So when you are testing the pH of your urine, you are testing the pH of the tissues or the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium.

k) A latent “acidosis” is the condition that exists when there are not enough bases in the alkalophile glands because they have been used up in the process of neutralizing the acids adsorbed to the collagen fibers. This leads to compensated “acidosis.” This means the blood pH has not changed but other body systems have changed. This can then lead to decompensated “acidosis” where the alkaline reserves of the blood are used up and the pH of the blood is altered. Decompensated “acidosis” can be determined by testing the blood pH, urine pH and the saliva pH. The decrease in the alkaline reserves in the body occurs because of hyper-proteinization, (eating Meat and Cheese!)or too much protein, and hyper-carbonization, or too much sugar. This is why 80 to 90 year old folks are all shrunk up and look like prunes. They have very little or no alkaline reserves in their alkalophile glands. When all the alkaline minerals are gone, so are you and your battery runs down. The charge of your cellular battery can be measured by testing the ORP or the oxidative reduction potential of the blood, urine or saliva using an ORP meter. As you become more acidic this energy potential or ORP increases.

l) If there is not enough base left over after meat and cheese or surgary meal, or enough base to neutralize and clear the acids stored in the connective tissues or interstitium, a relative base deficiency develops which leads to latent tissue acidosis.When this happens the liver and pancreas are deficient of adequate alkaline juices to ensure proper alkalization of the food in your stomach and small intestine.

m) Digestion or alkalization cannot proceed without enough of these alkaline juices for the liver and pancreas, etc., and so the stomach has to produce more acid in order to make enough base, ad nauseam, and one can develop indigestion, nausea, acid reflux, GERD, ulcers, esophageal cancer and stomach cancer. All of these symptoms are not the result of too much acid or HCL in the stomach. On the contrary, it is the result of too little base in the form of sodium bicarbonate!

n) Therefore the stomach is NOT an organ of digestion as currently taught in ALL biology and medical texts, BUT an organ of contribution or deposit. It’s function is to deposit alkaline juices to the stomach to alkalize the food and to the blood to carry to the alklophile glands!!!!

o) There is a daily rhythm to this acid base ebb and flow of the fluids of the body. The stored acids are mobilized from the connective tissues and Pishinger’s spaces or the spaces of the interstitium while we sleep.

These acids reach their maximum (base tide) concentration in this fluid, and thereby the urine (around 2 a.m. is the most acidic). The acid content of the urine directly reflects the acid content of the fluid in the Pishinger’s spaces, the interstitial fluid compartments of the body. On the other hand, the Pishinger’s spaces become most alkaline around 2 p.m. (the base flood) as then the most sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is being generated by the cover cells of the stomach to alkalize the food and drink we have ingested.

p) If your urine is not alkaline by 2 p.m. you are definitely in an ACIDIC condition and lacking in alkaline reserves. The pH of the urine should run between 6.8 and 8.4 but ideally 7.2 or greater.

q) After a high protein meal or meat or cheese, the free acids formed such as sulfuric, phosphoric, uric, and nitric acids stick to the collagen fibers to remove them from the blood and protect the delicate pH of the blood at 7.365. The H+ or proton ions from these acids are neutralized by the next base flood, the sodium bicarbonate produced after the meal. The H+ or proton ion combines with the carbonate or HCO3, converts to carbonic acid, H2CO3, which converts to CO2 and H2O. The sulfuric and other acids from proteins are neutralized as follows where the HR represents any acid with the R as its acid radical (SO4, PO4, or NO3) HR + NaHCO3 <=> H2O + NaR (Ca, Mg, K)+ CO2.

r) Medical doctors are not taught the above science in medical school and therefore do not understand the complex chemistry between the stomach, blood and interstitium or even recognize the effects of an acidic lifestyle and diet leading to latent tissue acidosis in the largest organ of the body called the Interstitium. They understand and recognize compensated acidosis and decompensated acidosis in the blood but do not know about or even understand a single thing about the Interstitium. In compensated acidosis, breathing increases in order to blow off more carbonic acid which decreases PCO2 because of the lowered carbonate or HCO3. When the breathing rate can no longer get any faster and when the kidneys can no longer increase its’ function to keep up with the acid load, then the blood pH starts to change from a pH of 7.365 to 7.3 then to 7.2. At a blood pH of 6.95 the heart relaxes and the client goes into a coma or dies.

s) Metabolism of a normal adult diet results in the generation of 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton per day, which must be excreted if the urine acid-base balance is to be maintained. A meq is a milliequivalent which is an expression of concentration of substance per liter of solution, calculated by dividing the concentration in milligrams per 100 milliliters by the molecular weight. This process involves two basis steps; 1) the reabsorption of the filtered sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 and, 2) excretion of the 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton produced each day by the formation of titratable acidity and NH4+ or ammonium. Both steps involve H+ or proton secretion from the cells of the kidney into the urine.

t) Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) must be reabsorbed into the blood stream, since the loss of NaHCO3 will increase the net acid load and lower the plasma NaHCO3 concentration. The loss of NaHCO3 in the urine is equivalent to the addition of H+ to the body since both are derived from the dissociation of H2CO3 or carbonic acid.

u) The biochemistry is: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+. The normal subject must reabsorb 4300 meq of NaHCO3 each day! The secreted H+ or proton ions are generated within the kidney cells from the dissociation of H2O or water. This process also results in the equimolar production OH- or hydroxyl ions. The OH- ions bind to the active zinc-containing site of the intracellular carbonic anhydrase; they then combine with CO2 to form HCO3- ions which are released back into the kidney cells and returned to the systemic circulation. Second, the dietary acid load is excreted by the secretion of H+ or proton ions from the kidney cells into the urine. These H+ or proton ions can do one of two things: the H+ or proton ions can be combined with the urinary buffers, particularly HPO4, in a process called titratable acidity (The biochemistry is: H+ + HPO4 = H2PO4), or the phosphate buffering system or the H+ or proton ions can combine with ammonia (NH3) to form ammonium as follows: NH3 + H+ = NH4.

v) This ammonia is trapped and concentrated in the kidney as ammonium which is then excreted in the urine.

w) In response to acid load, 36% of the H+ or proton goes intracellular in exchange for the release of Na+ (sodium) into the blood stream. 15% of the acid goes intracellular in exchange for K+ (potassium) – common in diabetics. 6% of the H+ or proton or acid goes directly into the cell to be buffered by intracellular processes. 43% is buffered by the interstitium as NaHCO3- or sodium bicarbonate combining with H+ or proton to form H2CO3 or carbonic acid which breaks down to CO2 or carbon dioxide to be released by the lungs. 10% of CO2 or carbon dioxide is excreted through the lungs and 90% is used by the body to reabsorb alkaline minerals and make sodium bicarbonate for buffering gastrointestinal, respiratory, enivronmenta and metabolic acids.

The biochemistry is: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+.

You can order the following book on sodium and potassium bicarbonate at: http://www.phoreveryoung.com or https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JLHJ1Y8/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_taft_p3_i9

x) Of all the ways the body can buffer metabolic and dietary acids, the excretion of protein (the eating of meat and cheese) generated acid residues is the only process that does not add sodium bicarbonate back into blood circulation. This creates a loss of bases which is the forerunner of all sickness and disease. In the long run, the only way to replace these lost bases is by eating more alkaline electron-rich green foods and long-chain polyunsaturated fats. Eating meat and cheese is definitely hazardous to your health. That is why I say, “a cucumber a day keeps the doctor away while eating meat, cheese and even an apple creates more excess acid in the colloidal connective tissues of the Schade or the Interstitium, leading to latent tissue acidosis and then sickness, disease and finally death.

y) With over 30 years of research and testing over 500,000 samples of blood and over 1,000,000 samples of urine and saliva I have come to the conclusion that the Human Body is an acid producing organism by function – yet, it is an alkaline organism by design. Eating animal protein, especially meat and cheese and sugar from any source are deadly acidic choices – unless you interested in becoming sick, tired and fat over time.

z) Bottom line – the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is a program that focuses on the foundational principal that the body is alkaline by design and yet acidic by function. These are my two greatest discoveries. This make this program the ultimate program for preventing and reversing aging and the onset of sickness and dis-ease. I would say that the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is the diet for a longer healthier life free from all sickness and disease. That is why you are seeing a slew of celebrities (Harry and Meghan, Tom Brady, Rhianna, Elle Macpherson, Gwyneth Paltrow, David Beckham, NeNe, Tony Robbins, just to name a few) can attest to the benefits of a pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet and the drinking of alkaline water for improving the quality of their skin, hair and body and to avert over-acidity which often leads to breakouts of the skin and many other health challenges.

Please remember this very important truth, hydrochloric acid in the stomach is not the cause of digestion but the result of alkalization. Start alkalizing today and begin improving the quality and quantity of your life today.

The Break-Through Research of Robert O Young CPT, MSc, DSc, PhD, Naturopathic Practitioner

My research has linked acidity to every sickness and disease, including enervation, irritation, catarrh, inflammation, induration, ulceration and degeneration. People do not die from disease they die from the inability to maintain the alkaline design of their body. The key to living a long and healthy life is managing the alkaline design of the body. For example pain equals acid and acid equals pain. You cannot have pain with acid. It is that simple! Remove the acid and you remove the pain.

 

The following are 20 suggestions on how to manage the alkaline design of your body and to increase your energy, vitality and quantity and quantity of life which is in your complete control! YOU determine YOUR Destiny!

20 Suggestions for Maintaining the Alkaline Design of YOUR Body for a Longer and Healthier Life

1. Start your day with a large glass of 9.5 alkaline water with the juice of a whole, freshly-squeezed lemon. While lemons are wrongly considered acidic, they are NOT! They are loaded with sodium bicarbonate which means they contribute to your alkaline reserves and protect the blood and interstitium from acid rain.

 2. Better yet, invest in a water filtration system that alkalinizes the water and increases the pH of the water to a 9.5 or greater. Pure water found in nature, which is hard to come by now thanks to acid rain, is quite alkaline. If you’re already drinking purified water, you can also purchase water alkalinizing drops to add to your water bottle and to raise the pH of your water to pH or 9.5 or greater. Here is the link to purchase alkaline pH drops for you water: https://store.phoreveryoung.com/collections/supplements/products/activator-by-ph-miracle-2-fl-oz-59-14ml

3. Eat a large green vegetable salad tossed in alkalizing lemon juice and olive oil. Greens are among the best sources of alkaline minerals like calcium and are high in chlorophyll for building hemoglobin and red blood cell counts.

4. Drink raw organic almond milk. Almonds are packed with natural alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium which can help to balance out acidity while buffering another acid called glucose or blood sugar.

5. Drink an Avocado smoothie daily. Using a Vita-mix blender you can blend an avocado with spinach greens, cucumber, celery, ginger and almond milk for an incredible alkalizing and energizing green shake.

6. Add green powder like wheat grass, barley grass, moringa grass or other greens to your daily diet since these foods that are highly alkalizing and energizing. It’s easy to throw a tablespoon of these greens into your Avocado based almond milk smoothie.

7. Take a brisk walk, bicycle ride, swim, rebound or some other exercise for at least 30 minutes everyday. Exercise helps move acidic waste products out of the interstitium and through the pores of the skin via perspiration.

8. Breathe deeply. Ideally, choose a spot that has fresh, oxygen-rich air. And, sorry, air filled with Febreze, Glade and all the other so-called “air fresheners,” is not what I’m talking about here. Take a deep breath in through your nose and then switch to breathing through your mouth without letting go of your first inhalation through your nose.

 

9. Go for Meatless and Eggless Mondays. Better yet, opt for meat-free Tuesdays, Wednesdays and other days throughout the week. During the chewing of meat, acid residues like uric acid, nitric acid, sulphuric acid and phosphoric acid residues are left behind for the stomach to address. There is zero health benefits from eating the flesh of another living being. All flesh is acidic and causes a double-loss of alkalinity in the blood and interstitium.

10. Skip the sugar-laden soda and drink some iJuice Wheat Grass Juice.(www.ijuicenow.com) Sugar is one of the most acidic foods we consume. Sugar is a waste product of metabolism and fermentation. You need over 30 glasses of alkaline water at a pH of 8.4 just to neutralize the acidity (sugar and carbonic acid) of ONE can or bottle of soda.

 

11. Skip the artificially-sweetened diet beverages and other diet products. They contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame (now known as NeoTame), sucralose (also known as Splenda) or saccharin (also known as SugarTwin) and they all cause body warming and acid rain inside your body.

12. Add more green fruit and vegetables to your diet. No, fried potatoes don’t count, including sweet potatoes. Asparagus, green peppers, green string beans, kale, spinach, beet tops, carrot tops, wheat grass, barley grass, broccoli, cucumber, avocado, and lime and other green fruit and vegetables are also excellent choices for supporting the alkaline design of the body.

13. Instead of slathering your vegetables in acid-forming butter, drizzle alkaline flaxseed oil, hemp seed oil, and/or green olive oil over them.

14. Sprout it out. Add more sprouts to your daily diet like bean sprouts, sunflower seed sprouts and broccoli sprouts. They are extremely alkalizing and supercharged with nutrients and energy-boosting electrons.

15. Skip ALL desserts or reserve them as occasional treats instead of daily habits. Sugar consumption has been linked to a whole host of health problems and is best minimized or eliminated. If you are in body warming then removing all acidic foods and drinks are a must.

16. Avoid all alcoholic beverages or so-called nutritional supplements that contain alcohol. Alcohol is a devastating acid that causes pancreatic and liver cancer.

17, Avoid corn and peanuts because they are loaded with bacteria, yeast and mold and the cancer causing acid lactic acid.

18. No acidic beverages like coffee, black or green tea or chocolate. They all contain food acids that robs your body of its alkaline reserves causing many diseases, including cancer.

19. Stay far away from vinegar. Vinegar is pure acid and steals years off your life! Do not believe the so-called health experts to state the vinegar is good for digestion. Remember this very important point. There is only one instrument in the human body that can digest or breakdown food and the is your teeth. When you pour vinegar into your body all you have done is poison yourself. The stomach has to rob alkalinity from the blood, interstitium, organs and glands to buffer this highly toxic chemical setting the stage for enervation, inflammation, induration, ulceration , degeneration and finally death. Vinegar is death in a bottle.

20. Test your urine and saliva and drink pHour Salts every morning. Your ideal pH of your urine and saliva should be at least 7.300. If your pH is lower than 7.300 take a scoop of pHour salts in a small glass of alkaline water. Ideally, you should drink a glass of phour salts which contains sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, magnesium chloride and calcium at least 3 times daily.

Using Sodium and Potassium Bicarbonates in the Prevention and Treatment of ALL Sickness and Disease

Abstract

This article suggests that the use sodium and potassium bicarbonates are non-toxic primary alkalizing agents in the prevention and  treatment of all cancers, kidney disease, liver disease, Type I & Type II diabetes, Lupus, heart disease, Pharmacological toxicosis, vascular surgery operation, tonsillar herniation due to cerebral edema, lactic acid toxicosis, and hyponatremia or low salt or loss of salts due to excessive or over-exercise!

[Key words: cancer, diabetes, lupus, heart disease, vascular surgery, herniation, cerebral edema, lactic acid toxicosis, liver disease, kidney disease, hyponatremia, Pharmacological toxicosis]

Introduction

Sodium and potassium bicarbonate are excellent agents for a natural alkaline approach in the treatment for all sickness and disease, including cancer. Sodium bicarbonate is the universal mainstream treatment of acidosis. It is used every day by oncologists to neutralize the heavy acidic nature of their chemical and chemotherapeutic agents which are often quite toxic. Sodium bicarbonate is also used routinely in many clinical situations as herein noted including many peer–reviewed journals:

1) Severe diabetic ketoacidosis (1)

2) Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (2)

3) Pregnancy (3)

4) Hemodialysis (4)

5) Peritoneal dialysis (5)6) Pharmacological toxicosis (6)

7) Hepatopathy (7)

8) Vascular surgery operations (8)

Medics and emergency room medical doctors are accustomed to participating in a flurry of activity when trying to save a persons live after a cardiac arrest–inserting IVs and breathing tubes, performing defibrillation to restart the heart, etc. Sodium bicarbonate is a constant performer under such conditions and is more commonly used than magnesium injections, which is traditionally at the top of every doctor’s protocol for cardiac arrest.

Mainstream oncologists recognize the routine involvement of late stage infections which I refer to as outfections in all cancerous conditions. Medical savants also recognize that bacteria, yeast and mold is present in over forty percent of all cancerous conditions. (9) The most recent research in this area demonstrates how even viruses, which I describe as crystallized acid, is present in fifty percent of certain types of cancerous conditions. (10)

Sodium and potassium bicarbonate increases the hydroxyl ions or electron levels through increased alkalinity to the cells buffering the metabolic acids that can cause cancer.(20)  It is also one of the most basic medicines in allopathic and alternative medicine we have for the treatment of kidney disease.  Research by British scientists at the Royal London Hospital shows that sodium bicarbonate can dramatically slow the progress of chronic kidney disease.(11) We don’t need a thousand years of scientific tests to understand something as simple and essential as alkaline water and it is quite the same with sodium and potassium bicarbonate. Sodium and potassium bicarbonate are always present in the best alkaline drinking waters and organic raw green foods and is constantly being produced by the cover cells of the stomach to alkalize the acidic foods and liquids we ingest, including buffering metabolic and respiratory acids in order to maintain the alkaline design of the blood and tissues at a delicate pH of 7.365.(20)

What is Latent Tissue Acidosis?
Medical doctors are not taught in medical school and therefore do not understand or recognize latent tissue acidosis. They understand and recognize compensated acidosis and decompensated acidosis. In compensated acidosis, breathing increases in order to blow off more carbonic acid which decreases PCO2 because of the lowered carbonate or HCO3. When the breathing rate can no longer get any faster and when the kidneys can no longer increase its’ function to keep up with the acid load, then the blood pH starts to change from a pH of 7.365 to 7.3 then to 7.2. At a blood pH of 6.95 the heart relaxes and the client goes into a coma or dies.

Latent “acidosis” is a condition that exists when there are not enough bases in the alkalophile glands because they have been used up in the process of neutralizing the acids adsorbed to the collagen fibers. This leads to compensated “acidosis.” This means the blood pH has not changed but other body systems have changed. This can then lead to decompensated “acidosis” where the alkaline reserves of the blood are used up and the pH of the blood is altered. Decompensated “acidosis” can be determined by testing the blood pH, urine pH and the saliva pH. The decrease in the alkaline reserves in the body  can occur because of hyper-proteinization, (eating meat and cheese!) or too much protein, and hyper-carbonization, or too much sugar or from excessive or over-excercise. This is why young athletes fall over dead or why 80 to 90 year old folks are all shrunk up and look like prunes. They have very little or no alkaline reserves in their alkalophile glands. When all the alkaline minerals are gone, so are you and your battery runs out of charge. The charge of your cellular battery can be measured by testing the ORP or the oxidative reduction potential of the blood, urine or saliva using an ORP meter. As you become more acidic this energy potential or ORP increases.

How Is Sodium Bicarbonate Created In The Body?

The parietal or cover cells of the stomach split the sodium chloride of the blood. The sodium ion is used to bind with water and carbon dioxide to form the alkaline salt, sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3. The biochemistry is: H20 + CO2 + NaCl = NaHCO3 + HCL. This is why I call the stomach an alkalizing organ NOT an organ of digestion. The stomach DOES NOT digest the food or liquids we ingest but it alkalizes the foods and liquids we ingest.  We have one instrument in the human body to digest food and it is NOT the stomach it is your teeth.  Once we swallow our food or drink the stomach begins to prepare the food by alkalizing it in a bath of sodium bicarbonate.

For each molecule of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) made, a molecule of hydrochloric acid (HCL) is made and secreted into the so-called digestive system – specifically, the stomach (the gastric pits in the stomach) – to be eliminated via the blood. Therefore HCL is an acidic waste product of sodium bicarbonate created by the stomach to alkalize the food and liquids ingested.

Exercise Creates Metabolic Acidic Waste Products Which Are Harmful To The Blood and Tissues

When one exercises or over-exercises the body needs additional alkaline bicarbonate salts to buffer lactic acids.  The additional bicarbonate is created in the stomach lining to buffer the increased amounts of lactic acids produced as a waste product of metabolism.  The production of sodium bicarbonate will always leave an acidic waste product of hydrochloric acid in the gastric pits of the stomach leading to nausea, light headedness, dizziness, muddle thingking, and poor circulation.  If the excessive exercise continues this can then lead to a dificiency of mineral and bicarbonate salts (electrolytes lost through perspiration or urination) which may lead to latent tissue acidosis, pain, edema, hyponatrenia and death.

But how does something like sodium and/or potassium bicarbonate, so seemingly innocuous have such a dramatic effect? During prolonged or intense exercise muscles produce large amounts of acidic waste products, such as lactic acid, that lead to soreness, stiffness, fatigue and possible edema if these acids are not buffered and eliminated through urination or perspiration. Because sodium and potassium bicarbonate naturally reduces metabolic acids, it acts as a buffer against these performance-limiting by-products.

Current research suggests that supplemental sodium bicarbonate, like the pH Miracle pHour Salts (contains sodium and potassium bicarbonate) is particularly helpful in speed-based events, including sprints, football and other fast-moving games, and middle-distance (up to 10km) running, swimming and cycling. “Essentially, sodium bicarbonate is an alkaline substance that increases the pH of the blood,” Dr Folland says. “This seems to reduce and offset the acidity produced in the muscles during intense, anaerobic exercise that produces lactic acid most quickly, such as fast running or swimming.”

In Dr Folland’s study, swimmers who took the sodium bicarbonate knocked 1.5 seconds off their time for 200m, a difference that may seem insignificant to recreational swimmers but which is substantial at elite level.

“At the last Olympics, the top four swimmers in the men’s 200m freestyle were separated by just 1.4 seconds,” Dr Folland says. “So, in theory, it could be the difference between winning a medal and not.”

Anyone can try it, he says, but only those who are serious enough to monitor their times and progress in sports such as running, swimming or cycling may notice the few seconds advantage it might provide. “The increments of improvement are relatively small to the average person, although significant to someone who competes,” Dr Folland says.

Athletes for years have sworn that taking a spoonful of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) helps them to keep going for longer. For years, experts doubted that there was anything other than a placebo effect to these claims until they subjected the substance to rigorous examination. Most exercise scientists investigating the trend for “soda-doping” among athletes and gym-goers have shown that it offers significant benefits for endurance and speed.”

At Loughborough University, for instance, physiologists reporting in the June issue of the International Journal of Sports Medicine showed that swimmers who took baking soda about one hour before a 200m event were able to shave a significant time off their usual performances. Dr Jonathan Folland, who led the study, says that it is not uncommon for top swimmers to take sodium bicarbonate (another name for the substance) before a competition to give them an edge. Indeed, he showed that of nine swimmers tested, eight recorded their fastest times after ingesting a supplement of the common baking ingredient – sodium bicarbonate.

Where are Bicarbonates Created In The Human Body and Why?

The chloride ion from the sodium chloride (salt) binds to an acid or proton forming HCL as a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production. HCL has a pH of 1 and is highly toxic to the blood and tissues and the cause of indigestion, acid reflux, ulcers, diabetes, cancer, hyponatremia, edema, tonsilar herniation and death.  When large amounts of acids, including HCL, enter the stomach from a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, such as meat and cheese, or from starchy foods from root vegetables like potatoes or during extreme exercise, acid is withdrawn from the acid-base household. The organism would die if the resulting alkalosis – or NaHCO3 (base flood) or base surplus – created by the stomach was not taken up by the alkalophile glands (salivary glands, pancreas, kidney, pylorus glands, Brunner’s glands, Lieberkuhn glands and liver) that need these quick bases in order to build up their strong sodium bicarbonate secretions. These alkalizing glands and organs are the stomach, pancreas, Brunner’s glands (between the pylorus and the junctions of the bile and pancreatic ducts), Lieberkuhn’s glands in the liver and its bile with its strong acid binding capabilities which it has to release on the highly acidic meat, cheese, potato, acid water or metabolic and/or respiratory acids from over-exercise to buffer its strong acids of nitric, sulphuric, phosphoric, uric and lactic acids in daily metabolism, respiration and excessive or over-exercise.

Bicarbonate acts to stimulate the ATPase by acting directly on it.(12)

The simple household product used for baking, cleaning, bee stings, treating asthma, cancer and acid indigestion is so effective in treating disease that it prevents patients from having to be put on kidney dialysis. The findings have been published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. Bicarbonate is a truly strong universal concentrated nutritional medicine that works effectively in many clinical situations that we would not normally think of. Bicarbonates of sodium and potassium are a prime emergency room and intensive care medicine that can save a person’s life in a heartbeat and it is also a supermarket item that you can take right off the shelf and use for more things than one can imagine – including diaper rash.

Dr. SK Hariachar, a nephrologist who oversees the Renal Hypertension Unit in Tampa, Florida stated, upon seeing the research on sodium bicarbonate and kidney disease, “I am glad to see confirmation of what we have known for so long.  I have been treating my patients with bicarbonate for many years in attempts to delay the need for dialysis, and now we finally have a legitimate study to back us up. Not only that, we have the added information that some people already on dialysis can reverse their condition with the use of sodium bicarbonate”.

A dialysis technician at the same center as Dr. Hariachar, who used to be on dialysis himself for 2 years as a result of kidney failure, had his kidneys miraculously start functioning to the point where dialysis was no longer needed. He states that he was prescribed oral doses of sodium bicarbonate throughout his treatment, and still takes it daily to prevent recurrences of kidney failure. Dr. Hariachar maintains though, that not everyone will be helped by taking bicarbonate. He says that those patients who have difficulty excreting acids, even with dialysis using a bicarbonate dialysate bath, that, “oral bicarbonate makes all the difference.”

The Stomach, Pancreas and Kidneys Naturally Produce Sodium Bicarbonate Every Day

The exocrine section of sodium bicarbonate from the stomach and the pancreas have been greatly ignored in the treatment of diabetes and cancer even though its impairment is a well documented condition. The stomach and the pancreas is primarily responsible for the production of sodium bicarbonate necessary for normal alkalization of food and liquids ingested. Sodium bicarbonate is so important for protecting the kidney’s that even the kidneys get into the act of producing sodium bicarbonate.  We now know the common denominator between hyponatremia, inflammation, edema, diabetes, kidney disease, and cancer is the lack of sodium and potassium bicarbonate or the body’s inability to produce sodium and potassium bicarbonate because of a lack of mineral salts in the diet. When the body is hit with reductions in sodium bicarbonate output by these three organs,’ acid conditions build up and then the entire body physiology begins to change from a state of oxygenation to fermentation. Likewise when acid build-up outstrips these organs normal sodium bicarbonate capacity, cellular, tissue, glandular and organ deterioration begins.

The stomach, pancreas and the kidneys alone produce about five hundred
grams (about one pound) of sodium and/or potassium bicarbonate per day in an attempt to neutralize dietary and/or metabolic acid in the blood and interstitial fluids that surround the body cells.

The stomach, pancreas and the kidneys monitor and control the acidity or “acid-base” (pH) balance of the blood and tissues. If the blood and tissues are too acidic, the stomach and/or the kidney’s make sodium bicarbonate to restore the blood and tissue pH back to a delicate pH balance of 7.365. If the blood or tissues are too alkaline, then the kidney excretes sodium bicarbonate into the urine to restore the 7.365 alkaline balance. Acid-base balance is the net result of two processes, first, the removal of sodium bicarbonate subsequent to hydrogen ion production from the metabolism or dietary constituents; second, the synthesis of “new” sodium bicarbonate by the stomach and/or the  kidney’s.(13)  The stomach and kidneys pull salt, water and carbon dioxide from the blood to make sodium bicarbonate to maintain the alkaline design of the body during all functions of the body from the ingestion of food or drink to exercise.  The chemical formula is as follows:  NaCl + H2O + CO2 = NaHCO3 + HCL.  The waste product of sodium bicarbonate is hydrochloric acid which is eliminated by kidneys as an acidic excretion of the urine.
It is considered that normal adults eating ordinary Western diets have chronic, low-grade acidosis which increases with age. This excess acid, or acidosis, is considered to contribute to many diseases and to contribute to the aging or rotting process. Acidosis occurs often when the body cannot produce enough sodium bicarbonate ions (or other alkaline compounds) to neutralize the acids in the body formed from metabolism and eating and drinking highly acid foods and drinks like chicken, pork, beef, dairy products, coffee, tea, alcohol, chocolate, soft drinks, just to name a few.  We are also testing bottled mineral water and finding that these waters are acidic and may contribute to overall tissue acidosis.
Acid-buffering by means of base supplementation (The pH Miracle pHour Salts) of sodium bicarbonate is one of the major roles of dialysis. Sodium bicarbonate concentration in the dialysate (solution containing water and chemicals (electrolytes) that passes through the artificial kidney to remove excess fluids and wastes from the blood, also called “bath.”) should be personalized in order to reach a midweek pre-dialysis serum sodium bicarbonate concentration of 22 mmol/l.(14)  Use of sodium bicarbonate in dialysate has been shown in studies to better control some metabolic aspects and to improve both treatment tolerance and patients’ life quality.  Sodium bicarbonate dialysis, unlike acetate-free biofiltration, triggers mediators of inflammation and apoptosis.(15)

One of the main reasons we become over-acid is from over-consumption of animal protein, dairy products, high sugar fruit, grains, alcohol, coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drinks and over-exercise or under-exercise. Eating meat and dairy products may increase the risk of prostate cancer, research suggests.(16) We would find the same for breast and other cancers as well metastatic cancers.(17) Conversely mineral deficiencies are another reason and when you combine high protein intake with decreasing intake of alkaline minerals you have a dis-ease in the making through lowering of pH into highly acidic conditions. When protein breaks down in our bodies they break into strong acids, such as, nitric, uric, sulphuric and phosphoric acid.

Unless a treatment actually removes acidic toxins  from the body and increases oxygen, water, and nutrients most medical interventions come to naught.

These metabolic and dietary acids must be excreted by the kidney’s because they contain sulfur, phosphorus, and/or nitrogen which cannot break down into water and carbon dioxide to be eliminated as weak acids. In their passage through the kidney’s these strong acids of ntric, sulphuric, phosphoric and uric acid must take a basic mineral with them because in this way they are converted into their neutral salts and don’t burn or destroy the kidney’s on their way out. This would happen if these strong acids were excreted in their free acidic form.

infusion prior to administration of radiocontrast
material seems to 
reduce the incidence of nephropathy.(18)

Sodium and potassoum bicarbonate ions neutralize the acids that cause chronic inflammatory reactions. Hence, sodium and potassium bicarbonate are of benefit in the treatment of a range of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Sodium and potassium bicarbonate are well-studied and used salts with known effects. Sodium and potassium bicarbonate are effective in treating poisonings or overdoses from many chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating their cardiotoxic and neurotoxic effects.(19)  It is the main reason it is used by orthodox oncology – to mitigate the highly toxic effects of chemotherapy.

Sodium and potassium bicarbonates possess the property of absorbing heavy metals, dioxins and furans. Comparison of cancer tissue with
healthy tissue from the same person shows that the cancer tissue
has a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc.

Sodium and potassium bicarbonate intravenous infusions are indicated in the treatment of metabolic acidosis, which may occur in severe renal disease, uncontrolled diabetes, and circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration, extracorporeal circulation of blood, cardiac arrest, tonsillar herniation due to cerebral edema, severe primary lactic acidosis and hyponatremia due to excessive or over-exercise.  During heavy exercise, if the the resulting lactic acid is not adsorbed by the collagen fibers, the specific acid catchers of the body, the blood pH will drop and the body will go into a coma and the person will die.

The total collection of these fibers is the largest organ of the body called SCHADE, the colloidal connective tissue organ. NO liquid exchange occurs between the blood and the parenchyma cells, or in reverse, unless it passes through this connective tissue organ. This organ connects and holds everything in our bodies in place. This organ is composed of ligaments, tendons, sinew, and the finer fibers that become the scaffolding that holds every single cell in our bodies in place. When acids are stored in this organ, which includes the muscles, inflammation or edema and pain develop. The production of lactic acid is increased with excessive exercise and the ingestion of milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, ice cream, high sugar fruit and starchy root vegetables like potatoes.

That is why I have stated, “acid is pain and pain is acid or acid is edema and edema is pain”.  You cannot have one without the other. This is the beginning of latent tissue acidosis leading to irritation, inflammation, edema and degeneration of the cells, tissues and organs and eventual or sudden death.  It is why we are seeing so many amateur and professional atheletes pass out and die on the playing fields.  Metabolic, respiratory and gastrointestinal acids can and do kill and death can be overted by simply maintaining the alkaline design of the body fluids with protective hydration of alkaine sodium bicarbonate fluids.

The acid/alkaline balance is one of the most overlooked aspects of diagnostic medicine. In general, the world population is heavily acidic, excepting alkalarian vegans (those who ingest raw, organic green fruit, vegetables, mineral salts, alkaline water and unsaturated seed and nut oils), and even their bodies have to face increasing levels of environmental toxic exposure, which may contribute to an acidic pH condition of the blood and then tissues.

With over 30 years of research and testing over 100,000 individual samples of blood and over 100,000 samples of urine and saliva, I have come to the conclusion that the human body is an acidic producing organism by function – yet, it is an alkaline organism by design. Eating animal protein, especially meat and cheese, sugar, fermented foods, starchy foods like potatoes, acidic water, alcohol, coffee, tea, chocolate,  and excessive exercise or under-exercise, obsessive behaviors, lack of rest, lack of sunshine, and emotional stress are deadly acidic lifestyle choices.

All enervation, under-performance, sensitivity, irritation, inflammation, edema, catarrh, induration, ulcerations, degeneration, aging and cancerous conditions are caused by a four letter word – ACID, which is an acronym which stands for:

A = acidic food and drink, attitudes and activities,
C = compromised internal acidic environment,
I = illness and dis-ease, and,
D = desire for more acidic foods, drinks, attitudes and activities, and the cycle repeats itself.[20]

We ingest acidic medicines to lessen the symptoms of our illness. We stimulate the body with unhealthy forms of energy providing quick, often temporary relief from our symptoms which begins the cycle all over again creating a very powerful pattern of poor health and dis-ease.

Conclusion

The pH Alkalizing Lifestyle and Diet is a low acid producing diet and lifestyle that focuses on the foundational principal that the body is alkaline by design and yet acidic by function. This makes this program the ultimate program for preventing and reversing aging and the onset of sickness and disease. I would say that the pH Alkalizing Lifestyle and Diet is the perfect diet and lifestyle for a longer healthier life.(20)

Ten Acidic Signs That Your Liver is Toxic and Sick!

liver-disease-s1a-did-you-knowLiver disease is any disturbance of liver function that causes illness. The liver is responsible for many critical functions within the body and should it become dis-eased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body.  Liver dis-ease is also referred to as hepatic dis-ease.

Liver dis-ease is a broad term that covers all the potential problems that cause the liver to fail to perform its designated functions. Usually, more than 75% or three-quarters of liver tissue needs to be affected before a decrease in function occurs.

The liver is the largest solid organ in the body; and is also considered a gland because among its many functions, it makes and secretes an alkaline substance called bile. The liver is located in the upper right portion of the abdomen protected by the rib cage. It has two main lobes that are made up of tiny lobules. The liver cells have two different sources of blood supply. The hepatic artery supplies oxygen rich blood that is pumped from the heart, while the portal vein supplies alkalizing minerals from the large intestine and the spleen.

Normally, veins return blood from the body to the heart, but the portal vein allows alkaline minerals from the large intestines to enter the liver for “detoxification” and filtering prior to entering the general circulation. The portal vein also efficiently delivers minerals and fats that liver cells need to produce the proteins, cholesterol, and electrons required for normal body activities.

There are several early signs of  an acidic liver to understand in order to protect the liver and its many functions from sickness and dis-ease.
Without a fully functioning liver,  your health and wellbeing will be compromised.  Fortunately your liver is capable of repairing and renewing itself every six weeks.  Understanding the following acidic liver conditions and spotting them early,  will help to prevent and/or reverse a serious life-threatening degenerative live dis-ease.

One of the early signs of excess liver acidity and the beginning of liver dis-ease is the liver’s inability to filter out all of the dietary and/or metabolic toxins from the blood.  With a build-up of toxins this may also lead to a build-up of Bilirubin which is a breakdown product of the blood.  The breakdown of the blood which increases bilirubin is caused by an acidic lifestyle, diet, congested liver and gallbladder and constipation of the elimination organs,  The body and specifically the gallbladder uses bile  to help alkalize the food ingested coming out of the stomach.  When the body cannot evacuate Bilirubin from the liver/gallbladder and blood via the bowels, it will accumulate in the bloodstream and results in the skin taking on a yellowish hue.  This yellowing can also affect the fingernails, the tips of the fingers, and especially the eyes. This acidic condition caused by an acidic lifestyle and diet is known as Jaundice.  Read, share and like more:

The Truth About Water! What Is In Your Water?

Clean drinking water is something that the public has pretty much taken for granted for the past hundred years. The public has little idea–perhaps understandably–just how contaminated our drinking water has become. Our environment has changed, new biological transformations are emerging, drinking- water systems are aging, and governments seem more interested in ensuring business in the global marketplace than in ensuring the safety and health of the world citizens.
Acid rain corrodes copper, lead, and galvanized pipes. There are hundreds of agricultural pollutants, including pesticides and fertilizer, industrial pollutants including plasticizers, solvents, and propellants; along with chemicals added to aid in the coagulation of water can be of great concern to water pollution.
A National Assessment of Tap Water Quality found 260 contaminants in our nation’s tap water; 141 of these contaminants have no enforceable safety limits. Of the 141 unregulated contaminants utilities detected in water supplies between 1998 and 2003, 52 are linked to cancer, 41 to reproductive toxicity, 36 to developmental toxicity, and 16 to immune system damage, according to chemical listings in seven standard government and industry toxicity references.
Despite the potential health risks, any concentration of these chemicals in tap water is legal, no matter how high.
However, the EPA’s own scientists have identified 600 chemicals in tap water formed as by-products of disinfection–they tracked 220 million pounds of 650 industrial chemicals discharged to rivers and streams annually. They also spearheaded research on emerging contaminants after the U.S. Geological
Survey found: 82 unregulated pharmaceuticals, hormones, medications, and residues of consumer products in rivers and streams across the country.
Intensive use of highly acidic antibiotics in humanand veterinarian medicine and in industrial farming (food additives) has resulted in the transport of significant quantities of the active ingredients to environmental waters. All told, EPA has set safety standards for fewer than 20 percent of the many hundreds of chemicals that it has identifiedin our drinking water.
Many of these compounds enter the human body through our skin when we bathe or swim.
By failing to clean up rivers and reservoirs that provide drinking water for hundreds of millions of Americans, EPA and the Congress have forced water utility companies to decontaminate water that is polluted with industrial chemicals, factory farm waste, sewage, pesticides, fertilizer, and sediment.  In its most recent national Water Quality Inventory EPA found that 45 percent of lakes and 39 percent of streams and rivers are “impaired”–unsafe for drinking, fishing, or even swimming, in some cases.
Even after water suppliers filter and disinfect the water, scores of contaminants remain, with conventional treatment regimes removing less than 20 percent of some contaminants. By failing to set tap water safety standards expeditiously or require and fund comprehensive testing, EPA allows widespread exposures to chemical mixtures posing known risks to human health.
A Fractional Damage Assessment from Acid Rain
Acid rain is produced when nitrous oxide, sulphur dioxide, and carbon dioxide gas in the upper atmosphere react with water particles to produce nitric acid, sulphuric acid, and carbonic acid respectively. Unpolluted rainfall normally balanced alkaline pH of about 7.1 to 7.3, whilst acid rain has a pH that varies from 4.1 to 5.5.
Rainwater was naturally slightly alkaline because it contained a small amount of dissolved carbon dioxide gas. This forms a small amount of carbonic acid. Acid rain contains abnormally high levels of carbonic acid (from the excessive amounts of carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere from burning fossil fuel).
The word equation is:
Carbon dioxide + water = carbonic acid
When we burn fossil fuels (especially coal), sulphur dioxide is made and released into the air. When sulphur dioxide dissolves in rainwater, it makes sulphuric acid.
Sulphur dioxide + water = sulfuric acid
Sulphur Dioxide reacts with a wide range of substances found in food, including various essential vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.
Sulfuric acid is actually a mixture of acids in high concentrations. Sulfuric acid is much stronger than carbonic acid. It is extremely corrosive and it causes damage to rocks, animals, and plants.
Sulfuric acid can cause severe burns to all body tissue and may be fatal if swallowed or contacted with skin. It is harmful if inhaled; it affects teeth; it is a cancerous hazard.
Strong inorganic acid mists containing sulfuric acid can lead to cancerous tissues.
Nitrous oxides react with water vapor to form nitric acid. Nitric acid is a highly corrosive and toxic acid that can cause severe burns.
Nitrous oxides + water = nitric acid
Nitric acid is a cancerous-causing agent. It is
also a powerful dehydrating agent, so powerful
that much of the damage it does to the human
body is because it pulls water even out of other
molecules in chemical reactions.
Apart from emissions of sulphur dioxide and
nitrogen oxides from the combustion of fossil
fuels, there are also other substances that
contribute to acid rain formation. These include
hydrochloric acid and organic carboxylic acids.
These organic acids include acetic acid and formic acid and are formed when volatile organic
compounds are oxidized in the air.
Acid rain causes a cascade of effects that
harm or kill individual fish, reduce fish
population numbers, completely eliminating fish
species from a body of water, and decrease
biodiversity. Damages also show up in land
animals, affecting their behavior and feeding
patterns. Acid rain kills trees, crops, and
other vegetation; damages buildings and
monuments; corrodes copper, galvanized steel,
and lead piping; damages such manufactured
things as automobiles; and reduces soil fertility.
Acid rain can raise the level of heavy metals,
many of which are carcinogenic, teratogenic,
transforming, reproductive toxins, or neurological
toxins in drinking water supplies.
Pure acid water extracted from drinking water
will burn holes in the outer membranes of
micro-forms like parasites, bacteria, yeast,
and microscopic worms. Pure acid water will
transform parasites and their eggs, bacteria,
yeast and mold. Pure acid water has a strong
oxidation potential (a shortage of electrons)
giving it the ability to ferment, spoil and
sterilize. When extracted from drinking water
about one third of the water is acid water
(and the third part of the waters became wormwood).
Think of the effects it can have on the plant, animal or human body.
Acid rain raises the level of heavy metals, some of which are poisonous, in drinking water supplies.
Polluted acidic waters contain higher than average levels of heavy and toxic metals, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), photochemical oxidants, and a laundry list of other toxins that lose serious health threats.
Some acidic toxins enter the human body through air, water, and/or through our skin (when we bathe or swim many of these toxins are absorbed through our skin). Other poisonous metals and toxins that are dissolved into the rain water are absorbed by the fruit, vegetables we eat.
All of the meat we eat is saturated with acidic
toxins that were absorbed through the skin and
into the tissue of the animals. In addition,
animals eat these plants and other animals,
perpetuating the cycle. Many heavy metals
are bio-accumulative and highly acidic. They can
accumulate in the soft tissues when the body
cannot metabolize them so they end up in the
connective and fatty tissues.
Acid rain contains caustic acids that tend to make the pH of the human body more acidic. Drinking acidic water can cause many serious dis-eases. All of the water we drink (including bottled, purified, reverse osmosis, and some distilled waters) contain these acids. It can be difficult to balance the pH of people consuming water loaded with these poisonous acidic wastes.
Breathing acidic air fogs (including hot shower or bath water) can damage our respiratory system. Some of these acids are powerful dehydrating agents, so powerful that much of the damage they do to the human body is because they pull water even out of other molecules in chemical reactions.
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are toxic
acidic chemicals that adversely affect human
health and the environment around the world.
Because they can be transported by wind and
water, most POPs generated in one country can
affect people and wildlife far from where they
are used and released. They persist for long
periods of time in the environment and can
accumulate and pass from one species to the
next through the food chain.
Although scientists have more to learn about
POPs acidic chemicals, decades of scientific
research have greatly increased our knowledge
of POPs’ impacts on people and wildlife. For
example, laboratory studies have shown that
low doses of certain POPs adversely affect
some organ systems and aspects of development.
Studies also have shown that chronic exposure
to low doses of certain POPs can result in
reproductive and immune system deficits.
Exposure to high levels of certain POPs
chemicals – higher than normally encountered
by humans and wildlife – can cause serious
damage or death.
There are acids called dioxins and dioxin-like
compounds in the food supply. Dioxin and
dioxin-like compounds, or DLCs, are found
throughout the environment, in soil, water,
and air. People are exposed to these
unintentional environmental contaminants
primarily through the food supply, particularly
by eating animal fat in meat, dairy products,
and fish. Another reason to avoid eating acidic
animal flesh, dairy or fish.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, over 90% of our exposure to acidic
dioxins is through food, with major sources
including beef, dairy products, milk, chicken,
pork, fish, and eggs. Dioxins are also passed
from mother to developing infant across the
placenta and through breastfeeding. Dioxins,
PCBs, DDT and other organochlorines are among
the 200 plus chemicals found in human breast milk
today that can lead to a host of infant dis-ease.
Acidic dioxins and related compounds are highly persistent in the environment and in living organisms. PCB’s can remain in human connective and fat tissue for decades. It is believed that almost all living beings on earth have dioxin-like compounds in their body tissues.
No amount of dioxin exposure can be considered safe, as very small amounts have been associated with impaired developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune function. Acidic dioxin is one of the most toxic chemicals known to humankind.
The cancerous risk from eating animal flesh
contaminated with acidic dioxin is another
clear warning that livestock foods have a
direct impact on human food quality and safety.
The health risks posed by the levels of acidic
dioxins in human foods and animal feeds have
yet to be ascertained by government officials.
Therefore, conveniently, governments do not
recommend regulatory limits on acidic dioxins
or dioxin-like compounds in food or feed
(even though PCBs and dioxin are known endocrine
disruptors).
Nitrate is a chemical that enters water from
fertilizer runoff, leaching septic tanks, and
erosion of natural deposits. Potential health
impacts associated with the acid nitrite includes
cardiovascular or acidic blood toxicity, acidic
kidney toxicity, and acidic reproductive toxicity.
The acid nitrate is one of the most common
groundwater contaminants in rural areas. Fertilizer
nitrogen that is not taken up by plants, volatilized,
or carried away by surface runoff – leaches to the
groundwater in the form of the acid nitrate. Septic
systems also can elevate groundwater nitrate
concentrations because they remove only half of
the nitrogen in wastewater, leaving the remaining
half to percolate to groundwater.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of Nitrate
tests reported by 32,210 public water suppliers
in 41 states shows that between 1998 and 2003,
176 million people in 23,704 communities drank
acidic water contaminated with nitrate. In 657
of these communities, tap water was contaminated
at levels above health-based thresholds.
Nitrate occurs in the environment, in air, food
(particularly in vegetables and fruits) and
water, and is produced endogenously. It is also
used as a food additive, mainly as a preservative
and anti-microbial agent. It is used in foods
such as cheese and cheese products, raw and
processed meats, edible casings, processed fish
and fish products and spirits and liqueurs.
Since most of our produce is grown with potassium,
nitrogen, and phosphorous fertilizers, and
irrigated with water that is contaminated with
nitrate (and about 600 other contaminates),
the produce we eat contains unnaturally high
levels of nitrate. Synergistically unbalanced
and contaminated acidic food will not sustain
our health; it will actually poison us to death.
What are the health effects? Nitrates can react
with hemoglobin to reduce the oxygen-carrying
capacity of the blood. Nitrates may combine
with other substances to form nitrosamines,
which are carcinogenic, and it may have an
atrophying affect on the adrenal gland.
Short-term: Excessive levels of nitrate in
drinking water have caused serious illness
and sometimes death. In some parts of the
country, beets, turnips, carrots, collard
greens and spinach contain large amounts of
nitrates, a chemical that can cause an unusual
type of anemia (low blood count) in young infants,
referred to as methemoglobinemia or blue baby
syndrome. Symptoms include shortness of breath
and blueness of the skin. The serious illness
in infants is due to the conversion of nitrate
to nitrite by the body, which interferes
with the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood;
blue baby syndrome can be an acute condition
in which health deteriorates rapidly over a
period of days.
Long-term: Nitrates and nitrites have the potential to cause the following effects from a lifetime exposure at levels above the maximum contaminant level: excessive discharge of urine, increased starchy deposits and hemorrhaging of the spleen.
Heavy metal aberrations found in our drinking water are directly causative or associative with dis-easeand ill health. A few examples are anemia, cardiac conditions, depression, digestive problems, high blood pressure, hormone imbalance, impaired, growth, infertility, insomnia, learning and behavioral problems, osteoporosis, chronic inflammation, and tumor proliferation.
Heavy metal toxins contribute to a variety of adverse health effects. There are more than 65 different heavy metals and toxic acidic compounds that impact human health.
Accumulation within the body can lead to a decline in the mental, cognitive, and physical health of the individual. Many of these pollutants are carcinogenic, teratogenic, reproductive acidic toxins, or neurological acidic toxins.
The increased acidity of rain also releases many
minerals that do not naturally occur or do not
belong in water at these disproportionate levels,
thus producing what is called hard water.
As a result, these acidic toxins are consumed
in drinking water or are ingested by plants,
animals, or aquatic life, which are then eaten
by humans.
When numerous metals are present in the body,
they have a “synergistic toxicity.” Dr. Boyd Haley,
professor and chair of the chemistry department
at the University of Kentucky, performed a study
on rats and found that the mortality rate of
rats exposed to a small dose of mercury or
aluminum killed only 1 rat in 100. However, when
the rats were exposed to both mercury and
aluminum at the same time, all 100 rats
died – a 100% mortality rate.
Here are a few more ways that acid deposition
has altered and continues to alter our soils:
Acid deposition depletes calcium, magnesium,
and other base minerals from the soil – this
depletion of base minerals fundamentally alters
soil processes, compromises the nutrition of
crops, and hinders the capacity for sensitive
soils to recover.
Acid deposition facilitates the mobilization
of dissolved inorganic minerals into soil water –
the increased acidity of rain releases many
minerals that do not naturally occur or do not
belong in water at these disproportionate levels,
thus producing what is called hard water – as a
result, they are consumed in drinking water or
are ingested by plants, animals, or aquatic life,
which are then eaten by humans.
Acid deposition increases the accumulation of
sulfur and nitrogen in the soil.
To some extent all minerals compete for
absorption, compete for the same binding sites.
Studies have shown that excesses of particular
minerals can result in deficiencies in others;
likewise, deficiencies of some minerals promote
excesses of others. This mutual dependence
means not only are minerals required in optimal
amounts but also in relative amounts.
Severe health problems arising from human contact
with acidic toxic or hazardous wastes are
increasingly common.
The seriousness of this problem cannot be
underestimated in light of findings from the
World Health Organization (WHO) who revealed
that 60-80% of heavy metal toxins found in
human bodies in urban industrial areas were
the result of consuming contaminated foods
and water rather than through air pollution.
The burning of coal releases many contaminants
into the atmosphere, among these are mercury,
cadmium, arsenic, and lead.
MERCURY
Mercury occurs primarily in two forms: organic
mercury and inorganic mercury. Inorganic mercury
and elemental mercury are both toxins that can
produce a wide range of adverse health affects.
Inorganic mercury is used in thermometers,
barometers, dental fillings, batteries, electrical
wiring and switches, fluorescent light bulbs,
pesticides, fungicides, vaccines, paint,
skin-tightening creams, antiseptic creams,
pharmaceutical drugs, and other ointments.
Humans have the ability to convert this
inorganic mercury to an organic form once it
has become absorbed into the bloodstream.
Organic mercury is known to bio-accumulate
due to the body’s inability to process and
eliminate it. Rain is contaminated with mercury
from coal-fired electric plants and the burning
of fossil fuel. Mercury is one of the heavy
metals that cause dangerous inflammation in
body tissues. Acidification increases bio-
conversion of mercury to methylmercury;
methylmercury is a neurotoxin, and the form
of mercury that is most easily bio-accumulated
in organisms.
Methyl mercury compounds, such as dimethyl
mercury, are among the most dangerous. Mercury
salts released into the environment may frequently
be converted by anaerobic bacteria into such
compounds, which can then be carried through
the food chain to humans. Methylmercury exposure
via food most often occurs when seafood-
containing mercury is eaten, or when mercury-
containing plants, such as rice, are consumed.
Organic mercury is often found in produce,
farm animals, processed grains, dairy products,
and surface water sources.
Potential health impacts associated with mercury
include cancerous states, cardiovascular or blood
toxicity, developmental toxicity, endocrine
toxicity, gastrointestinal or liver toxicity,
immunotoxicity, kidney toxicity, neurotoxicity,
reproductive toxicity, respiratory toxicity,
and skin sensitivity.
Occupational exposure to mercury containing
compounds presents a significant health risk
to individuals. Dentists, painters, fishermen,
electricians, pharmaceutical/laboratories workers,
farmers, factory workers, miners, chemists, and
beauticians are just some of the professions
chronically exposed to mercury compounds.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
mercury tests reported by 28,299 public water
suppliers in 40 states shows that between 1998
and 2003, 18.5 million people in 1,298 communities
drank water contaminated with mercury. In 37 of
these communities, tap water was contaminated
at levels above health-based thresholds.
Environmental Health Perspectives found that
89 percent of their female patients had
mercury levels above what most scientists
consider safe, and that high mercury levels
in adults correlated with memory loss,
fatigue, and muscle aches. Another preliminary
study this year found that mothers who delivered
prematurely were more likely to have high
mercury levels.
Unborn babies are at the greatest risk. Babies
developing in the womb seem to be most vulnerable
to the effects of mercury on their brains
and nervous systems. Mercury is poisoning an
entire generation of our nation’s children!
CADMIUM
Cadmium emissions arise from two major source
categories, natural sources and anthropogenic
(man-made) sources. Emissions occur to the
three major compartments of the environment –
air, water, and soil, but there may be
considerable transfer between the three
compartments after initial deposition.
Man-made cadmium emissions arise either from
the manufacture, use and disposal of products
intentionally utilizing cadmium, or from
the presence of cadmium as a natural but
not functional impurity in non-cadmium
containing products. Cadmium (for industrial
use) is produced in large quantities, over
8 million metric tons in 1999. Cadmium
generated by metal smelters/refiners is
cemented and buried, stored for future
use, or disposed of in landfills as hazardous
acidic waste.
Cadmium poses a major concern to food safety
because is taken up relatively easily by
crops. What makes cadmium unique is that it
is not toxic to plants at concentrations of
concern to human health. Consumption of crops
is the main source of human exposure at
approximately 75%. Grains, leafy greens,
and root crops are associated with elevated
levels of cadmium.
Cadmium accumulates in the body; although a
person’s daily intake may be as little as 0.05
milligrams, he or she will have stored, on
average, about 50 milligrams. Cadmium is a
poison and is known to cause birth defects
and cancerous tissue. It can stay in one’s body
for years and can also change forms within
the body.
Cadmium interferes with the metabolism of copper,
iron, calcium, zinc, and vitamin D. An
Environmental Working Group analysis of cadmium
tests reported by 28,944 public water suppliers
in 41 states shows that between 1998 and 2003,
9.5 million people in 1,364 communities drank
water contaminated with cadmium. In 1,040 of
these communities, tap water was contaminated
at levels above health-based thresholds.
ARSENIC
According to a 1999 study by the National Academy
of Sciences, arsenic in drinking water causes
a cancerous bladder, lung, and skin, and may
cause a cancerous kidney and liver. The study
also found that arsenic harms the central and
peripheral nervous systems, as well as heart and
blood vessels, and causes serious skin problems.
It can cause birth defects and reproductive problems.
Arsenic is a natural element of the earth’s crust.
It is used in industry and agriculture, and for
other purposes. It also is a byproduct of copper
smelting, mining, and coal burning. U.S.
industries release thousands of pounds of
arsenic into the environment every year.
The use of this toxic element in numerous
industrial processes has resulted in its
presence in many biological and ecological
systems. Ground, surface, and drinking water
are susceptible to arsenic poisoning from
the use of arsenic in smelting, refining,
galvanizing, and power plants; environmental
contaminants like pesticides, herbicides,
insecticides, fungicides, desiccants,
wood preservatives, and animal feed additives;
and human made hazardous waste sites, chemical
wastes, and antibiotics.
Arsenic suppresses iodine and selenium. It
is a carcinogen that inactivates sulfhydryl
groups leading to cell death, increases
bleeding time, reduces thyroid function by
interfering with iodine metabolism, depresses
bone marrow involved in methionine metabolism.
Low serum arsenic is correlated with central
nervous system disorders, vascular disease,
and cancerous tissue.
Data compiled by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency on arsenic in drinking
water in 25 states found conservative
estimates indicate that more than 34
million Americans drink tap water supplied
by systems containing average levels of
arsenic that pose unacceptable cancerous
risks. We consider it likely that as many
as 56 million people in those 25 states
have been drinking water with arsenic
at unsafe levels–and that is just the
25 states that reported arsenic information
to the EPA.
Some plants are arsenic-resistant or can
block arsenic uptake by their root systems.
Still other food crops accumulate arsenic
at levels that raise human health concerns.
Since plants take up arsenic primarily by
their roots, the highest level of arsenic
accumulation is usually in roots and tubers,
such as carrots and potatoes.
Studies have shown close associations
between both inhaled and ingested arsenic
and cancerous rates. Cancerous conditions of
the skin, liver, respiratory tract, and
gastrointestinal tract are well documented
in regards to arsenic exposure.
LEAD
Lead is the 5th most utilized metal in the
U.S. Human exposure to lead occurs primarily
through drinking water, airborne lead-containing
particulates, and lead-based paints. The primary
source of lead in drinking water is from
lead-based plumbing materials. The corrosion of
such materials will continue to increase
concentrations of lead in municipal drinking
water. The EPA actually allows small amounts
of lead to be present in our tap water due
to this insurmountable problem. Grounding
of household electrical systems to plumbing
may also exacerbate corrosion. Corrosion of
plumbing is by far the greatest cause for
concern. All water is corrosive to metal
plumbing materials to some degree.
Lead from water and airborne sources have
been shown to accumulate in agricultural
areas leading to increased concentrations
in agricultural produce and farm animals.
Cigarette smoke is also a significant source
of lead exposure.
A certain amount of lead is always in our
bodies because of the background presence
of lead in food, water, and sources in
the soil. The EPA estimates that drinking
water can make up 20 percent or more of
a person’s total exposure to lead.
Atmospherically derived lead is a widely
distributed contaminant that can inhibit
a range of essential ecosystem processes
in soils. Lead has made its way into food,
animals, and humans.
Because of the possibility of permanent
impairment, lead poisoning is particularly
dangerous during the critical development
periods of infants and young children under
the age of 7 years. Young children, those
6 years and younger, are at particular risk
for lead exposure because they have frequent
hand-to-mouth activity and absorb lead more
easily than do adults. Children’s nervous
systems are still undergoing development and
are therefore more susceptible to the effects
of toxic agents. Lead is also harmful to the
developing fetuses of pregnant women.
Lead in drinking water is a significant
contributor to overall exposure to lead,
particularly for infants whose diet
consists of liquids made with water, such
as baby food or formula.
Lead is one of the most toxic elements
naturally occurring on Earth. High
concentrations of lead can cause
irreversible brain damage, seizure,
coma, and death if not treated immediately.
Evidence suggests that lead may cause fatigue,
irritability, memory problems, reduction
in sensory and motor reaction times,
decision making impairment, and lapses
in concentration. In adults, lead is
very detrimental to the cardiovascular
system.
Occupationally exposed individuals tend to
have higher blood pressure and are at an
increased risk for cardiovascular disease,
myocardial infarction, and stroke. The
kidneys are targets of lead toxicity and
prone to impairment at moderate to high
levels of lead concentrations. Other
signs/symptoms of lead toxicity include
gastrointestinal disturbances, abdominal
pain, cramps, constipation, anorexia and
weight loss, immunosuppression, and some
liver impairment. Lead can affect almost
every organ and system in our body.
No safe blood lead level in children has
been determined. Children absorb lead much
more efficiently than adults do after
exposure and are susceptible to the most
damaging effects of lead toxicity. Lead
not only appears to affect cognitive
development of young children but also
other areas of neuropsychological function.
Low levels of lead in blood have been
associated with reduced IQ and attention
span, learning disabilities, poor classroom
performance, hyperactivity, behavioral
problems, impaired growth, and hearing loss.
Very high blood lead levels can cause severe
neurological problems such as mental
retardation, coma, convulsions, and even
death. Lead has been determined by many
health experts to be the #1 threat to
developing children in our industrial
societies.
The most sensitive is the central nervous
system (brain), particularly in children.
Lead also damages kidneys and the reproductive
system. The effects are the same whether it
is breathed or swallowed.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
lead tests reported by 21,997 public water
suppliers in 35 states shows that between
1998 and 2003, 50.4 million people in 7,942
communities drank water contaminated with lead.
In 2,275 of these communities, tap water was
contaminated at levels above health-based
thresholds.
IRON
Inorganic iron is one of the most troublesome
elements in water supplies. Making up at least
5 percent of the earth’s crust, iron is one of
the earth’s most plentiful resources. Acidic
rain water as it infiltrates the soil and
underlying geologic formations excessively
dissolves iron, causing it to seep into
aquifers that serve as sources of groundwater
for wells. This is one reason that there
is a high prevalence of increased iron
stores in the general population of western
countries.
Inorganic iron is almost indigestible. When
people suffering from anemia are given
supplements of inorganic iron, these supplements
are poorly absorbed in the gut and can have
many unpleasant side effects.
Excess iron accumulates in the pancreas causes
tissue injury. Iron affects glucose metabolism.
Iron stores are associated with insulin
sensitivity, insulin secretion, and insulin
resistance. High inorganic iron causes excessive
sodium retention. Tissue iron excess contributes
to produce and amplify the injury caused by acidity
as well as to modulate various steps involved in
the inflammatory lesion. It should not be ignored
that chronic inflammation caused by dietary and/or
metabolic acid, to some extent, to increase ferritin concentration.
CHROMIUM
Chromium is abundant in the earth’s crust and is widely dispersed in the environment. It is used
extensively in refractory materials and chemicals, as a plating to produce hard and smooth surfaces, to prevent corrosion, and in manufacturing stainless and alloy steels. Major atmospheric emissions of chromium arise from metal producing industries, coal-fired plants, municipal incinerators, and cooling towers.
Chromium-6 or Hexavalent chromium is an inorganic chemical that can be toxic. Chromium-6 has been in the news lately because it has been found in groundwater due to industrial contamination. It was the focus of the popular movie Erin Brockovich.
Hexavalent chromium in the workplace is suspected of being carcinogenic. Excessive exposure to dusts or mists of hexavalent chromium compounds produces dermatitis, skin lesions, and ulceration and perforation of the nasal septum, as well as liver and kidney damage. With long-term exposure to
hexavalent chromium compounds, incidence of human lung cancer increases.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
hexavalent chromium tests reported by 1,111
public water suppliers in 3 states shows that
between 1998 and 2003, 33.4 million people in
519 communities drank water contaminated with
hexavalent chromium.
BARIUM
Barium is a heavy metal released into the air
by human activities, mainly barium mines, metal
production facilities, and industrial boilers
that burn coal and oil. When coal and oil are
burned to generate electricity, an ash is
produced which contains more than 99% of their
barium content. Barium released into the soil
and water comes from copper smelters and oil
drilling waste disposal sites. Industries
reporting to the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) released 159 tons of barium into
the environment in 1995. More than half was
released to the soil. Some foods, such as
Brazil nuts, seaweed, fish, and certain
vegetables, may contain high amounts of barium.
Barium and barium compounds are used for many commercial processes. Barium sulfate is mined and used in oil and gas production, medical procedures, and the manufacture of paints, bricks, tiles, glass, and rubber. Other barium compounds are used in the manufacture of ceramics, pesticides, and oil and fuel additives.  In addition, physicians often instruct their patients to swallow a barium compound solution as part of certain medical test procedures.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
barium tests reported by 29,280 public water
suppliers in 41 states shows that between
1998 and 2003, 147 million people in 20,626
communities drank water contaminated with
barium.
Barium interferes with natural immune system
functioning. Barium compounds are extremely
poisonous. At low doses, barium acts as a
muscle stimulant, while higher doses affect
the nervous system, causing cardiac
irregularities, tremors, weakness, anxiety,
dyspnea, and paralysis. This may be due to
its ability to block potassium ion channels
that are critical to the proper function of
the nervous system.
As barium weakens the immune systems of the
masses, we should expect to see statistically
significant increases in various dis-eases
that might normally be minimally occurring
in a population with a fully-activated immune
system.
BERYLLIUM
Beryllium is a metal from metal refineries,
coal burning, and pollution from electrical,
aerospace and defense industries. Potential
health impacts associated with beryllium
include cancerous conditions, cardiovascular
or blood toxicity, gastrointestinal or liver
toxicity, immunotoxicity, kidney toxicity,
reproductive toxicity, respiratory toxicity,
and skin sensitivity.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
beryllium tests reported by 29,913 public
water suppliers in 41 states shows that
between 1998 and 2003, 6.9 million people
in 720 communities drank water contaminated
with beryllium.
MOLYBDENUM
Molybdenum is a by-product of copper and
tungsten mining. It is used as an alloy for
various metals, and it occurs naturally in
soil and rock. Potential health impacts
associated with molybdenum include
neurotoxicity and reproductive toxicity.
Plants can, under certain conditions
accumulate large concentrations of molybdenum.
Molybdenum uptake by plants increases with
increased soil pH. Molybdenum can cause
acute clinical disease and subsequent
death by interfering with copper metabolism.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
molybdenum tests reported by 1,183 public
water suppliers in nine states shows that
between 1998 and 2003, 24.6 million people
in 134 communities drank water contaminated
with molybdenum. In 84 of these communities,
tap water was contaminated at levels above
health-based thresholds. Molybdenum remains
unregulated in tap water, without a maximum
legal limit.
Molybdenum is mobile in plants and in soil.
It is less available in soils with a lower
pH. Acid-leached forest and sandstone soils
are generally low in molybdenum. Acid rain
causes molybdenum to be released from the
soil, which contaminates our water and food
supply.
PHOSPHOROUS
Phosphorus is a component of fertilizer and
manure, and a pollutant in municipal wastewater
discharges. Potential health impacts associated
with phosphorus include cardiovascular or
blood toxicity, gastrointestinal or liver
toxicity, kidney toxicity, musculoskeletal
toxicity, neurotoxicity, reproductive toxicity,
respiratory toxicity, and skin sensitivity.
Organic phosphate fertilizers contain
radionuclides (such as radium, radon,
radioactive lead, polonium, thorium, etc),
toxic metals, and fluorine.
Phosphate fertilizers are manufactured from
phosphate rocks and, according to their origin,
may contain various micronutrients
(cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum,
nickel, zinc) and heavy metals considered toxic
(arsenic, aluminum, beryllium cadmium, lead,
mercury, and vanadium) (Camelo et al., 1997
and Mirlean et al., 2001). The build up of
toxic heavy metals and fluorine in soils as
a result of continuous application of phosphate
fertilizers has never been mentioned to the
general public.
The phosphate rocks are also enriched in
uranium, thorium and their daughters,
deposited as calcium phosphate minerals
by isomorphic substitution (Pfister et al.,
1976), since the natural uranium can
substitute calcium in the phosphate rock
structure due to the similarity in ionic
size between U4+ and Ca2+ (Guzman, 1992).
Depending on geographic location where the
phosphate rock is mined, it can contain
from 50 – 200 ppm of uranium. Phosphate rock
is the major source of ‘yellow cake’
(uranium oxide) for nuclear weapons and
the nuclear power industry.
Where there is uranium in natural rock
formations, there will also be all its
carcinogenic decay rate products; such
as radium, radon, radioactive lead,
polonium, thorium, etc.
The tailings from phosphoric acid production
(phosphate fertiliser), phosphorgypsum, are
so radioactive that they are not allowed to
be used for wall-board or road beds in the
US and Canada – because it is considered a
radiation hazard. However, organic growers
are allowed to treat their fields with the
raw, unprocessed product once every six years,
with none of the contaminants processed out.
Taking a closer look at this ‘natural’ phosphate
rock mix, we find for example polonium-210:
One particle of polonium-210 gives off 5,000
times more alpha radiation than the same amount of radium. Damage occurs in the body from complete tissue absorption of the energy of the alpha particle. Polonium-210 can be
carcinogenic to people exposed to more than
0.03 microcuries (6.8 trillionths of a gram).
There are also high levels of Radium and
Polonium-210 in granite dust, which is used
by organic farmers, is some parts of the
world as a soil conditioner.
Polonium is carried throughout the body in
the blood. It has been linked to more soft-
tissue cancers than cancerous bones; typical
sites are the liver, spleen, and kidney. The
most important pathway for radionuclide
contamination of the food is the uptake by
plant from the ground through the roots.
Once the contaminated foods have been
ingested by man or animals, the radionuclides
produce an internal radiation dose in the
specific organs where they accumulate.
Polonium is found in tobacco grown with
phosphate fertilizers. Studies have suggested
that radioactive polonium may be the primary
cause of smoking-related cancers.
Our water supplies are being flooded with
radioactive elements, especially radon.
It is important to note that these do not
simply dissipate in a few days, months,
or years – these radioactive elements will
emit radon for many thousands of years.
The long-continued application of phosphate
fertilizers and their by-products can
redistribute and elevate heavy metal
concentrations in soil profiles, and,
consequently, their availability for plants
and subsequent transfer to the human food
chain, mainly in acid soils.
Additionally, the long-continued application
of phosphate fertilizers can also raise the
heavy metal concentrations in irrigation
runoff/drainage from fertilized lands, and,
then, their application in agricultural soils
constitute another source for workers and
members of the public. One ounce @ 5.0% phosphate (about the amount used to fertilize one organic tomato plant as recommended by some organic growers) contains about 1.4 grams of fluoride, which is enough to kill a small child.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
phosphorus tests reported by 162 public water
suppliers in 7 states shows that between
1998 and 2003, 3.3 million people in 113
communities drank water contaminated with
phosphorus. In all of these communities,
tap water was contaminated at levels above
health-based thresholds. Phosphorus remains
unregulated in tap water, without a maximum
legal limit. Water suppliers reporting tests
for phosphate (1998-2003): 258 of 39,751.
PERCHLORATE
25 APR 2007 | A bill to set national safety
standards for toxic rocket fuel perchlorate,
found in drinking water supplies in more
than 20 states, is moving in Congress.
However, perchlorate is currently an
unregulated contaminant. Officials found
the rocket fuel ingredient perchlorate at
up to 1,300 parts per million in the fall –
roughly 166 times higher than acceptable limits.
Perchlorate is a toxic chemical from military-
industrial activities and the use of Chilean
nitrate fertilizer.
Production and use estimates of perchlorate
are hard to come by: the military considers
the numbers secret, and fertilizer producers
will not share them, saying they are proprietary
information.
Perchlorate can affect thyroid function –
because perchlorate is an ion that inhibits
the transport of iodide into the thyroid.
Scientists have found that a significant
number of people are at risk of thyroid
depression from perchlorate exposure.
Extensive data indicate that thyroid-
pituitary disruption is the sole mode
of action for the observed thyroid
tumors caused by perchlorate in rodents.
A series of critical new studies by
scientists at the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention show that the
EPA’s proposed safe exposure level
for the contaminant “perchlorate”
is not protective of public health. To
add insult to injury, the California
Environmental Protection Agency
recently raised the limit on the
amount of perchlorate allowed in
drinking water by 50%. Currently
there are no enforceable perchlorate
safety standards, but Environmental
Working Group (EWG) argues that a
national safety standard should be
no higher than one-tenth the EPA’s
currently recommended level.
Preliminary data from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention show
that the amount of perchlorate in
urine is too high to be from drinking
water alone. Studies have found perchlorate
in rainwater and common foods produced
in the U.S., such as dairy products and
produce. Perchlorate is also found in
produce worldwide.
In the first-ever tests of perchlorate
in off-the-shelf supermarket produce,
EWG found contamination averaging 4
times more than what the EPA says is
safe in drinking water. The chemical
has also been found in prenatal vitamins
and seaweed. Perchlorate can remain in
food even after it is cooked.
Blast from the past: billions of kilograms
of Chilean nitrate fertilizer contaminated
with perchlorate left a lasting impression.
Between 1909 and 1929, the U.S. imported
an estimated 19 million tons of Chilean
nitrate. The United States still uses 75,000
short tons of Chilean nitrate annually.
Overall, fresh fruits and vegetables from
California and Central and South America had
the highest levels of perchlorate. Just one
serving of some fruits can contain enough
perchlorate to exceed the National Academy
of Sciences safe daily dose by 25%, and
wines and beers pack a bigger perchlorate
punch than waters, according to a new study
that measures perchlorate concentrations
in fruits, wines, and beers from around
the world. The food contribution to daily
perchlorate exposure looks to be a horrendous
disaster attributed to intensive farming,
irresponsible agricultural practices,
and military-industrial activities.
Perchlorate’s interference with iodide
uptake by the thyroid gland can decrease
production of thyroid function, which is
needed for prenatal and postnatal growth
and development, as well as for normal
metabolism and mental function in the adult.
Perchlorate is present in virtually all
milk samples; the average concentration
in breast milk is five times higher than
in dairy milk. Studies testify that high
levels of perchlorate in breast milk put
the nation’s infants at risk for
developmental problems. Thyroid function is
critical for development of the fetal and
neonatal brain, as well as for many other
aspects of fetal growth. The high levels
of perchlorate in breast milk are cause for
serious concern and should lead to immediate
government action to protect the public health.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
perchlorate tests reported by 982 public
water suppliers in 7 states shows that
between 1998 and 2003, 26.2 million
people in 86 communities drank water
contaminated with perchlorate. In 8 of
these communities, tap water was contaminated
at levels above health-based thresholds.
Perchlorate remains unregulated in tap water,
without a maximum legal limit. Perchlorate
is a known endocrine disruptor.
ASBESTOS
Asbestos is a mineral fiber from decay of
asbestos cement in water mains. Potential
health impacts associated with asbestos
include cancer, immunotoxicity, and
respiratory toxicity.
An Environmental Working Group analysis
of asbestos tests reported by 2,533 public
water suppliers in 26 states shows that
between 1998 and 2003, 8.6 million people
in 147 communities drank water contaminated
with Asbestos. In 2 of these communities,
tap water was contaminated at levels
above health-based thresholds.
Contaminants Index
Drinking water, including most bottled, reverse
osmosis, and distilled water may reasonably be
expected to contain some contaminants. U.S.
EPA sets standards for approximately 90
contaminants in drinking water.
The following are common contaminants found
in public water, their potential health effects,
and the type of water filters that are capable
of removing them:
2,4,5TP: This is an herbicide that is used
on crops and right-of-way areas. It can
cause liver and kidney damage. The maximum
contaminant level is 0.05mg/L. A water
filter that removes Volatile organic
chemicals (VOCs) will remove this compound.
NSF standard 53.
2,4-D: This is an herbicide used on wheat, corn,
range lands and lawns. The maximum amount allowed in public water is 0.07mg/L. Like the above herbicide it causes liver and kidney damage.  A charcoal/carbon filter (Standard 53) that removes VOCs will remove this contaminant.
Alachor: This is an herbicide used on corn,
soybeans, and other crops. The maximum amount allowed in public water is 0.002 mg/L. It
is a carcinogen (i.e. it causes cancer).
A carbon/charcoal filter Standard 53,
that removes VOCs will remove this contaminant.
Arsenic: This is a heavy metal. It comes from
smelters, glass and electronic wastes as well
as from orchards and natural deposits. The
maximum contaminant level for arsenic is
0.010 mg/L. Its potential health hazards
include skin and nervous system toxicity.
Arsenic is found in water in two different
forms: pentavalent (also known as Arsenic
5 or arsenate) and Trivalent (Arsenic 3
or Arsenite). Chlorine converts trivalent
to pentvalent arsenic. Carbon/charcoal,
reverse osmosis filters as well as
distillation will remove this contaminant.
Distillation will remove trivalent and
pentvalent arsenic, while reverse osmosis
will remove pentvalent only. Look for
Standards 53, 58, or 62.
Asbestos: This contaminant comes from natural
deposits and asbestos cement used in water
systems. The maximum contaminant level is 7
million fibers per liter. It is a serious
carcinogen. Carbon/charcoal and reverse
osmosis remove this contaminant.
Atrazine: This is an herbicide used on corn
and on non crop land. It can cause mammary
gland tumors. Its maximum contaminant level
is 0.003 mg/L. Carbon/charcoal standard 53
filters will remove this contaminant. It is
part of the VOC category.
Bacteria: Bacteria are not supposed to be found
in our public waters. But occasionally they may
contaminate the water we drink. Sources are
naturally occurring or from human or animal
wastes. Most of them cause gastrointestinal
disorders. Ultraviolet treatment is usually
necessary for removal of these contaminants,
or look for NSF standard 55 filters. Class A
inactivates or removes micro-forms from
contaminated water (not raw sewage) and
Class B disinfection systems remove naturally
occurring organisms found in public waters
that are deemed non-pathogenic.
Barium: This is a found in natural deposits,
epoxy sealants, pigments and spent coal. Its
maximum contaminant level is 2 mg/L. It can
potentially affect the circulatory system.
Cation exchange softeners, reverse osmosis
and distillation will remove barium. Look
for standards 44, 58 and 62.
Cadmium: This is found in galvanized pipe
corrosion, natural deposits, batteries and
paints. It primarily effects the kidneys.
Its maximum contaminant level is 0.005 mg/L.
Reverse osmosis, distillation remove it.
Standards 58 and 62
Carbufuran: This is a soil fumigant used on
corn and cotton. It effects the nervous
reproductive systems. Its maximum contaminant
level is 0.04 mg/L. Carbon/charcoal standard
53 remove this. It is part of the VOC category.
Chloramine: The effects of this contaminant are
unknown. It is used as a disinfectant. The
maximum recommended usage level is 4 mg/L.
Carbon/charcoal filters, standard 42 remove
this contaminant. Systems certified for
reduction of chlorine will not necessarily
be effective against chloramines.
Chlordane: This is used for treating termites.
Maximum contaminant level is 0.002. It can
cause cancerous conditions. Carbon/charcoal
filters, Standard 53 will remove this contaminant.
Chlorides: Cause water to taste salty.
Maximum contaminant level is 250 mg/L.
These come from natural deposits. Reverse
osmosis and distillation may remove these.
Chlorine: This is used for disinfection of
drinking water. The chlorination by-products
(trihalomethanes) have potential health effects.
Carbon/charcoal standard 42 filters will remove
chlorine. Contact your local water utility to
determine if chlorine or chloramines are used
to disinfect your water.
Chlorination by-Products (trihalomethanes):
These are by-products of chlorination in
drinking water and they are carcinogenic.
The maximum contaminant level is 0.08 mg/L.
Carbon/charcoal standard 53 filters are
effective at reducing these contaminants.
Chromium: This is a by-product of mining,
electroplating, pigments and from natural
deposits. It can be present in water in
forms: hexavalent (chromium 6) and trivalent
(chromium 3). It can cause liver, kidney and
circulatory disorders. Reverse osmosis and
distillation Standards 53,58 and 62 remove
chromium.
Copper: From natural and industrial deposits,
wood preservatives, and plumbing. It may leach
from residential plumbing. The maximum
contaminant level is 1.3 mg/L. It can cause
gastrointestinal irritation. Charcoal/carbon,
reverse osmosis, and distillation, Standards
42, 58 and 62 remove this contaminant.
Crytosporidium: This is a parasite that is
found in food or water contaminated with
human or animal waste. It can cause
gastrointestinal illness. Although public
water should not have any cryptosporidium
in it, it is not uncommon to see people
in the Portland area test positive on stool
test for it. Standard 53, 58 and 55 water
filters should remove it. Look for a filter
capable of removing spores < 1 micron.
-dichlorobenzene: part of the VOC category.
From paints, engine cleaning compounds, dyes,
chemical wastes. Causes liver, kidney and
blood cell damage. Carbon block standard
53 removes.
Hepatochlor Epoxide: A degradation product of
heptachlor which is used in insectides,
particularly for termite eradication. It is
a carcinogen. Allowable amount is 0.0002 mg/L.
Carbon block, standard 53 removes this.
This contaminant is part of the VOC category.
Hydrogen sulfide: causes the rotten egg odor in
water. It is a naturally occurring chemical
in water. Carbon block, standard 42 filters
remove it.
Iron: Maximum allowable amount is 0.3mg/L.
It can stain laundry, plumbing and appliances.
It is from natural deposits in the water.
Carbon/charcoal filter, standard 42 will
remove it.
MTBE: From gasoline spills, underground gas
tank leakages. The potential health effects
include cancer, developmental toxicity,
gastrointestinal or liver toxicity, kidney
toxicity, neurotoxicity, and skin sensitivity.
Carbon block, standard 53 will remove it.
Nitrite: Can cause methemoglobulinemia
(blue baby syndrome). From animal waste,
fertilizer, natural deposits, septic tanks,
sewage. Maximum allowable level is 1 mg/L.
It rapidly converts to nitrate. Reverse
osmosis, standard 53, 58, 62 remove this
contaminant.
PCBs: from the coolants used in electrical
transformers and plasticizers. PCBs are known
carcinogens. Maximum allowable amount is
0.0005 mg/L. Carbon block filters, standard
53 remove this contaminant.
Radium: This is a naturally occurring carcinogen.
It can cause cancerous bones. Filters that remove it are reverse osmosis and cation exchange softeners, standard 44 and 58.
Radon: Another naturally occurring contaminant,
it is also a carcinogen and is a risk factor
for cancerous lung. Carbon/charcoal and aeration devices remove it. Look for a standard 53.
Selenium: maximum contaminant level is 0.05 mg/L. It is from natural deposits, mining, smelting, coal/oil combustion. Too much selenium can cause liver damage. Standard 58, 62 reverse osmosis filters will reduce selenium.
Sulfates: can cause gastrointestinal irritation.
They are naturally occurring. Reverse osmosis
or distillation may be effective at removing.
Sulfuric acid and nitric acid: acid rain occurs
when sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are
emitted into the atmosphere, undergo chemical
transformations. Reverse osmosis, distillation,
carbon/charcoal filters will not remove them –
the water needs to be ionized.
Styrene: Maximum allowable amount 0.10 mg/L.
Styrene is from plastic, rubber, resin and
drug industries. It also can leach from
landfills into the ground water. It causes
liver and nervous system damage.
Taste and odor: From natural sources and
additives. Carbon/charcoal standard 42.
Total dissolved solids: Come from the erosion
of naturally occurring mineral deposits. TDS’s
antagonizes the assimilation of other minerals
and causes secondary mineral deficiencies. They can also cause gastrointestinal irritation in some people. Maximum level should not exceed 500 mg/L. Standard 42, 58, 62 distillation,
reverse osmosis remove these.
Toxaphene: A carcinogenic insecticide that was
used on cattle, cotton, and soybeans. Standard
53, carbon/charcoal filter to remove it.
Trichloroethylene: A carcinogen found in textile,
metal and adhesive degreasers. Carbon/charcoal standard 53 removes it. This is part of the VOC category.
Turbidity: from soil run off, it can interfere
with disinfection and filtration. Charcoal/carbon;
reverse osmosis standards 53, 58 can remove.
Uranium: Causes kidney problems, cancer. Maximum allowable amount is 0.03 mg/L. Filtration systems are not currently certified to remove uranium although reverse osmosis, distillation or anion exchange resins may.
Micro-forms
Coliform bacteria are common in the environment and are generally not harmful. However, the presence of these bacteria in drinking water is usually a result of a problem with the treatment system or the pipes which distribute water, and indicates that the water may be contaminated with germs that can cause disease.
Fecal Coliform and E coli are bacteria whose
presence indicates that the water may be
contaminated with human or animal wastes.
Micro-forms in these wastes can cause
short-term effects, such as diarrhea, cramps,
nausea, headaches, or other symptoms.
Turbidity has no health effects. However,
turbidity can interfere with disinfection
and provide a medium for biological transformation.  Turbidity may indicate the presence of dis-ease causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, yeast, mold and parasites that can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches.
Cryptosporidium is a parasite that enters
lakes and rivers through sewage and animal
waste. It causes cryptosporidiosis, a mild
gastrointestinal disease. However, the dis-ease
can be severe or fatal for people with severely
weakened immune systems. EPA and CDC have
prepared advice for those with severely
compromised immune systems.
Giardia lamblia is a parasite that enters lakes
and rivers through sewage and animal waste.
It causes gastrointestinal illness (e.g.
diarrhea, vomiting, cramps).
Radionuclides
 
Alpha emitters.
Certain minerals are radioactive and may emit
a form of radiation known as alpha radiation.
Some people who drink water containing alpha
emitters in excess of EPA’s standard over
many years may have an increased risk of
increased acidity leading to cancerous
tissue and tumor formation.
Beta/photon emitters. Certain minerals are
radioactive and may emit forms of radiation
known as photons and beta radiation. Some
people who drink water containing beta and
photon emitters in excess of EPA’s standard
over many years may have an increased risk
of cellular transformation, increased acidity
leading to cancerous tissue.
Combined Radium 226/228. Some people who
drink water containing radium 226 or 228
in excess of EPA’s standard over many years
may have an increased risk of cellular
transformation and increased acidity leading
to cancerous states.
Radon gas can dissolve and accumulate in
underground water sources, such as wells,
and in the air in your home. Breathing radon
can cause the fermentation of lung tissue
and cancerous lungs. Drinking water
containing radon presents a risk of
developing cancer. Radon in air is more
dangerous than radon in water.
A few more inorganic contaminants:
Antimony, Beryllium, Cyanide, and Thallium
 
Arsenic
Some people who drink water containing
arsenic in excess of EPA’s standard over
many years could experience skin damage
or problems with their circulatory system,
and may have an increased risk of cellular
fermentation and cancerous states.
Lead typically leaches into water from
plumbing in older buildings. Lead pipes
and plumbing fittings have been banned
since August 1998. Children and pregnant
women are most susceptible to lead health
risks. For advice on avoiding lead, see
the how to remove lead in your drinking
water fact sheet prepared by EPA.
Volatile Organic Contaminants (VOCs) benzene,
carbon tetrachloride, chlorobenzene,
o-Dichlorobenzene, p-Dichlorobenzene,
1,1-Dichloroethylene,
cis-1,2-Dichloroethylene,
trans-1,2-Dicholoroethylene,
Dichloromethane, 1,2-Dichloroethane,
1,2-Dichloropropane, Ethylbenzene,
Styrene, Tetrachloroethylene,
1,2,4-Trichlorobenzene,
1,1,1,-Trichloroethane,
1,1,2-Trichloroethane, Trichloroethylene,
Toluene, Vinyl Chloride, and Xylenes.
Chlorine. Some people who use drinking water
containing chlorine well in excess of EPA’s
standard could experience irritating effects
to their eyes and nose. Some people who drink
water containing chlorine well in excess of
EPA’s standard could experience stomach
discomfort.
Chloramine. Some people who use drinking water containing chloramines well in excess of EPA’s standard could experience irritating effects to their eyes and nose. Some people who drink water containing chloramines well in excess of EPA’s standard could experience stomach discomfort or anemia.
Total Trihalomethanes. Some people who drink
water containing trihalomethanes in excess of
EPA’s standard over many years may experience
problems with their liver, kidneys, or central
nervous systems, and may have an increased risk
of cancerous tissue.
Haloacetic Acids. Some people who drink water
containing haloacetic acids in excess of EPA’s
standard over many years may have an increased risk of cancerous tissue.
Bromate. Some people who drink water containing
bromate in excess of EPA’s standard. Bromate is
a disinfection by-product of ozonation. Potential
health impacts associated with Bromate include
cancerous tissue and kidney toxicity.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of
Bromate tests reported by 73 public water
suppliers in 16 states shows that between
1998 and 2003, 3.9 million people in 20
communities drank water contaminated with
Bromate. In 11 of these communities, tap
water was contaminated at levels above
health-based thresholds. Water suppliers
reporting tests for Bromate (1998-2003):
73 of 39,751.
MTBE is a fuel additive, commonly used in the
United States to reduce carbon monoxide and
ozone levels caused by auto emissions. Due to
its widespread use, reports of MTBE detections
in the nation’s ground and surface water supplies are increasing. The Office of Water and other EPA offices are working with a panel of leading experts to focus on issues posed by the continued use of MTBE and other oxygenates in gasoline. EPA is currently studying the implications of setting a drinking water standard for MTBE.
Potential health impacts associated with MTBE
include cancerous conditions, developmental
toxicity, gastrointestinal or liver toxicity,
kidney toxicity, neurotoxicity, and skin
sensitivity.
An Environmental Working Group analysis of MTBE tests reported by 16,866 public water suppliers in 30 states shows that between 1998 and 2003, 32.7 million people in 632 communities drank water contaminated with MTBE. MTBE remains unregulated in tap water, without a maximum legal limit.  Water suppliers reporting tests for MTBE (1998-2003):
16,866 of 39,751.

Tu cuerpo es eléctrico y funciona con electrones! :: 1ª Parte ::

neuronas-electricas

Artículo del Dr. Robert O. Young

Cada movimiento que realizamos depende de nuestra respiración, de lo que bebemos y comemos, ya que nuestro movimiento está impulsado por energía eléctrica que almacenamos en el cuerpo. Recibimos nuestra energía de las tres fuentes principales: del aire, de los alimentos y del agua.
energíaLa energía eléctrica no aparece así sin más del aire que respiramos, de la comida o del agua que ingerimos. En su forma habitual no es químicamente biodisponible. Esta energía no siempre está disponible para poder sostener cada movimiento que hacemos ya que muchas veces no está lista para generar una reacción química. ­  Para que se de cualquier reacción química es necesario la presencia de dos moléculas, y cada una de estas moléculas debe tener algo que “intercambiar” en forma de átomos compatibles que ya bien estén cargados positivamente o negativamente. Las moléculas cargadas positivamente (y los átomos que contiene) se unirán fácilmente y de manera natural con las moléculas cargadas negativamente con carga equivalente y compatible.
Dicho de manera sencilla, todas tus funciones corporales dependen de la energía eléctrica generada por la unidad de la “carga” contenida en las moléculas y la “carga” opuesta que entra a través de la comida, el agua y el aire.  Por lo tanto, ¿qué es un ion?
Ion Positivo: Es un átomo (o molécula) que ha perdido uno o más electrones debido a un impacto energético elevado. Las fuerzas naturales que generan iones positivos incluyen la descomposición de minerales radioactivos, gas radón, incendios forestales, relámpagos y rayos ultravioletas.
 Ion Negativo: Es un átomo (o molécula) que ha ganado uno o más electrones extra cargados negativamente. Los iones negativos se generan de manera natural con la evaporación del agua.
ionesUn ión es cualquier átomo que tenga una carga positiva o negativa. Un ión cargado positivamente buscará uno que esté cargado negativamente para unirse a él y tener un “acoplamiento” glorioso transformándose en algo completamente nuevo y disponible.
¿Así que, por qué alabamos tanto los iones negativos?
Porque el resultado de cada movimiento que realizas (una red que consume energía eléctrica) es un cuerpo cargado positivamente. Las moléculas en tu cuerpo se quedan con una carga positiva. Y estos iones no están disponibles para futuros “acoples” a menos que consigamos rápidamente un buen lote de atractivos iones negativos dispuestos a dar energía.
Actualmente se oye mucho decir que las cosas ya no son lo que eran. El aire es diferente, etc. Siendo muy franco y poco científico se podría decir que está lleno de mierda o ácido. Los iones cargados positivamente son mierda ácida. Nada desaparece en nuestro pequeño planeta verde y todo lo que sueltan los tubos de escape,  el humo de las chimeneas de las fábricas, los gases que se liberan en el aire perdura en nuestra frágil y delgada ionosfera.   Permanece en el aire que tragamos cuando corremos por la playa, permanece en el agua que bebemos y en la comida que comemos. Y toda esta contaminación ácida o iones positivos son inservibles para producir energía dentro del cuerpo.
El aire que respiramos en nuestro jardín sólo a 500 metros de la playa contiene alrededor de 150 iones negativos/cc/segundo. Pero también contiene unos 700 iones positivos. Esto significa que aunque estemos tumbados en la playa sin hacer nada, nuestros cuerpos se quedan cortos por 2000 (los necesarios), más 700 iones positivos y menos 150 iones negativos = 2550 iones/cc/segundo.

Cataratas cerca de Minoh 5,000 300
(Estas mediciones fueron tomadas en Japón)
En algunas oficinas dónde hay muchos terminales de ordenador se detectó que no había iones negativos en absoluto. Dentro de las típicas residencias en Tokio se encontró que los iones positivos eran 500 veces más numerosos que los iones negativos. Estos resultados pueden deberse a una inadecuada ventilación tanto en los edificios de oficinas como en los hogares energéticamente eficientes, al igual que por el uso de dispositivos electrónicos que generan un campo electromagnético y por los materiales de los edificios que emiten formaldehido y otros gases tóxicos.
Por otro lado, los niveles elevados de iones negativos, como los generados por cataratas, aguas termales y otras áreas altamente hidratadas, neutralizarían los iones positivos haciendo que los niveles de iones positivos fuesen bajos. En cualquier caso, estas mediciones sugieren que en la actualidad es muy difícil mantener los niveles adecuados de iones negativos.
Debido a que nuestro medio ambiente ya no nos puede proporcionar los iones negativos básicos, nuestros cuerpos tienen que ionizar negativamente el aire, el agua y la comida que entra en nuestro cuerpo para poder obtener el mínimo de iones negativos necesarios, y ahí tumbados al sol, nuestro organismo está trabajando sin parar para conseguir la suficiente energía eléctrica disponible simplemente para poder levantarse de la arena y andar hacía el coche.
¿Tuvimos siempre que hacer esto? ¡No!
Hemos conseguido transformar nuestro precioso planeta de un jardín paradisiaco a un mundo tecnológico lleno de basura ácida en menos de un siglo, y lo hemos hecho muy, pero que “muy bien.” Hubo una época en que el aire puro que respirábamos y el agua de los manantiales o glaciares que bebíamos nos aportaba todos los iones cargados negativamente que necesitábamos, en la actualidad estos mismos elementos básicos nos roban energía.
¿Te apetece la idea de beber agua alcalina pura de lluvia? ¡Ni se te ocurra! Te roba electrones negativos del cuerpo. También es acidificante ya que se ha combinado con CO2 y otras sustancias contaminantes a medida que cae del cielo, contribuyendo únicamente a acidificar aún más el cuerpo.
¿Te apetece ir a la playa y revitalizarte con el aire puro del mar? Ese aire vino directamente de la fábrica química de Brasil y ahora te toca a ti respirarlo. Así que nos estamos ahogando en nuestro propio aire, deshidratándonos con nuestra agua, e intoxicándonos con nuestra comida supuestamente tan higiénica de los supermercados.
En una situación tan radical se precisa tomar medidas drásticas, y desde luego, nos hallamos en una situación de supervivencia corporal de emergencia. Hemos perdido los electrones negativos, la energía eléctrica viva que necesitamos para poder respirar libremente.
No es difícil de entender por qué envejecemos de la manera que lo hacemos. De repente ya somos viejos y nos preguntamos cómo ha ocurrido. Pues sí, ha estado ocurriendo durante años porque nuestros maravillosos e increíbles cuerpos han estado luchando y perdiendo la batalla, para mantener su diseño alcalino y evitar la vejez.
En vez de llevar a cabo simplemente sus funciones de limpieza diaria, el cuerpo invierte toda su energía en ionizar el agua, la comida y el aire que respira para que la energía esté disponible y pueda almacenarse.  
Los expertos en medicina China conocen muy bien el poder de este proceso de ionización negativa. Llaman a esta energía corporal  el Qi y dicen que proviene de aire que respiramos, del agua y los alimentos que ingerimos. En su libro “El Tao de la Salud, el Sexo y la Longevidad” el autor y experto en longevidad  Daniel Reid dice; ´Puesto que no existe ningún término en inglés para Qi o Prana, nos vamos a referir a él como energía “biónica” o “bioeléctrica”. Esto combina la idea de energía viva con organismos vivos (bio-) y con electricidad (-eléctrico) e iones cargados negativamente (iónico).
energía
En 1836, Christoph Wilhelm Hufeland escribió en su libro “El Arte de Prolongar la Vida del Hombre” un estudio detallado sobre el fenómeno de la fuerza vital en un mundo organizado reconociendo en él las siguientes características y leyes:
“la fuerza vital es el agente más sutil, más penetrante y más invisible que hayamos conocido hasta ahora en la naturaleza; con respecto a esto podría decirse que supera incluso a la luz, a la electricidad y al magnetismo,  con lo que en otros aspectos parece que tiene la mayor analogía…
Encontramos una similitud sorprendente entre la fuerza vital y el magnetismo. La fuerza vital puede existir en un estado latente y libre, y en este sentido tiene una similitud cercana al calor y a la electricidad.”
Más recientemente, el científico francés Dr. J. Belot afirmó,
“Cuando contemplamos la vida orgánica bajo la luz de la biofísica, encontramos que los fenómenos eléctricos se hallan en la raíz de toda vida celular y concluimos que el final de todo es una descarga eléctrica”.
En marzo de 1968, hace 44 años, el periódico Le Monde publicó que la presencia de iones negativos o la ionización facilitan la absorción de oxígeno en los pulmones, ayudando a eliminar el CO2 de los alveolos pulmonares, y que los iones positivos producen precisamente el efecto opuesto.
Los gases, el polvo, los humos químicos, los alimentos acidificantes como las carnes, lácteos, frutas con alto contenido en fructosa, los granos, el café, las bebidas de cola, el té, el vinagre, el alcohol, etc., penetran todos ellos en el organismo como iones cargados positivamente, atrapando los diminutos iones negativos debido a su gran capacidad de absorción, y convirtiendo técnicamente el aire en algo ´muerto´.
otto_warburgCuando leemos el trabajo del Dr. Otto Warburg, Científico galardonado con un premio Nobel, comenzamos a entender no sólo la gran importancia del oxígeno ionizante alcalino, el sodio, el hidrógeno y el nitrógeno, sino también la absoluta importancia para nuestra longevidad  que estos elementos entren en nuestro cuerpo en una forma cargada negativamente.Asimismo, comenzamos a ver la gravedad de los efectos por el uso de sustancias comunes. Un silla de plástico acelerará la fatiga mental, al igual que lo hará una pared o una cubierta de plástico. Los objetos que están cubiertos con polietileno producen un campo de entre 5 y 10,000 volts/metro.
En un espacio rodeado de polietileno el nivel se dispara a 100,000 voltios/metro. Ciertas ropas sintéticas son lo suficientemente potentes como para generar a tu alrededor un campo que repele todo ión negativo. Ve a la montaña, tampoco te ayudará mucho si llevas tu chaqueta de plumón favorita o zapatos sintéticos de plástico.
En cualquier caso, estas mediciones sugieren que en la actualidad es difícil mantener los suficientes niveles de iones negativos.

A Natural Healthy and Legal Way To Increase Blood Volume – Pass It Along To Lance

There were several questions that came to mind after watching the Oprah Winfrey and Lance Armstrong interview where Lance finally admitted to using EPO, human-growth hormone, testosterone and blood doping.

So What is Blood Doping?

Blood doping is an illicit method of improving athletic performance by artificially boosting the blood’s ability to carry and deliver more oxygen to the connective tissues, including the muscules.

In many cases, blood doping increases the red blood count and its main oxygen carrying molecule, hemoglobin.  So, increasing hemoglobin allows higher amounts of oxygen to reach and alkalize an athlete’s muscles.  This can improve stamina and performance, particularly in long-distance events, such as long-distance running and cycling.

Blood doping is banned by the International Olympic Committe and other sports organizations.

What Are Types of Blood Doping?

The three widely used types of blood doping are:

1) Blood transfusions
2) Injections of erythropoetin (EPO), and 
3) Injections of synthetic oxygen oxygen carriers.

Here are some more details about each of these types of blood doping:
Blood transfusions.  In normal medical practice, patients may undergo blood transfusions to replace blood lost due to injury, surgery or chemotherapy. Transfusions also are given to patients who suffer from low red blood cell counts caused by anemiakidney failure, cancer and chemotherapy treatments.
Illicit blood transfusions are used by athletes to boost athletic performance. There are two types.
Autologous transfusion. This involves a transfusion of the athlete’s own blood, which is drawn and then stored for future use.  Most commonly this involves the removal of two units (approximately 2 pints!) of the athletes blood several weeks prior to competition. The blood is then frozen until 1-2 days before the competition, when it is thawed and injected back into the athlete. This is known as autologous blood doping.
Homologous transfusion. In this type of transfusion, athletes use the blood of someone else with the same blood type and then injected straight into the athlete.
EPO Injections

EPO is a hormone produced by the kidney. It regulates the body’s production of red blood cells.  In medical practice, EPO injections are given to stimulate the production of red blood cells. For example, a synthetic EPO can be used to treat patients with anemia related to chronic or end-stage kidney disease or cancer and its treatment with chemotherapy.
Athletes using EPO do so to encourage their bodies to produce higher than normal amounts of red blood cells, hemoglobin and blood volume called hematocrit to enhance athletic performance.
Synthetic Oxygen Carriers 

These are chemicals that have the ability to carry oxygen. Two examples are:
  • HBOCs (hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers)
  • PFCs (perfluorocarbons)
Synthetic oxygen carriers have a legitimate medical use as emergency therapy. It is used when a patient needs a blood transfusion but:
  • human blood is not available
  • there is a high risk of blood out-fection (A blood outfection is when the blood is breaking down due to metabolic and/or dietary acids or from acidic drug use.)
  • there isn’t enough time to find the proper match of blood type
Athletes use synthetic oxygen carriers to achieve the same performance-enhancing effects of other types of blood doping: increased oxygen in the blood carried by the hemoglobin in red blood cells that helps reduce tissue acidosis in the connective tissues and muscles.  This results in reduced tissue or muscle breakdown and tissue acidosis that causes inflammation and pain.

So what could have Lance Armstrong done differently to achieve athletic superiority in his sport without drugs and blood fransfusions? And, how could have Lance Armstrong naturally increased his red blood cell count, hemaglobin and hematocrit and in turn increased his VO2 or oxygen volume to his connective tissues and muscles thus minimizing acid build-up and cellular breakdown, without taking hormones, steroids, EPO and blood transfusions known as blood doping?

Having been a professional athlete myself I have been doing natural blood doping successfully for myself (My blood counts run consistently – RBC count 5.2 million/mcL, Hemoglobin 17.2 g/dl, Hematocrit 53%, White Blood Count 3.8 thousands/mcL, Platelet Count 156 thousands/mcL, Glucose 80 mg/dl, Sodium 146 mEq/L, Chloride 106 mEq/L, Potassium 5 mEq/L, and Calcium 9.8 mg/dl, just to name a few of the most important markers in the blood), other athletes (including Professional and Olympic athletes) and cancer patients around the World for years with NO negative side-effects.

IT IS SIMPLE – IT IS SAFE – IT IS NATURAL – IT IS SMART and IT IS LEGAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No side-effects except for increased health, energy and vitality.

Pass this on to Lance Armstrong?

Here is the formula for natural blood building without medical drugs, hormones, steroids, or blood transfusions (based upon 70kg body):

1)  Drink 250ml of pH Miracle liquid Chlorophyll.  Chlorophyll is the concentrated blood of green plants and is identical to human hemoglobin except for the center atom of magnesium in chlorophyll.  Drinking the blood of green plants will increase hemoglobin in less than two weeks.

2)  Drink 6 liters of pH Miracle Greens with 5 drops of the puripHy per liter.  The pH Miracle greens contains concentrated (28 to 1 concentration) grasses, fruit and vegetables that will increase red blood cell count and blood volume as indicated on a Comprehensive Blood Count Test.  The pH Miracle puripHy drops will increase the pH of the green drink and help to buffer metabolic and dietary acids that break down connective tissue and weaken muscles.

3)  Ingest 16 portions of alkalizing green fruit and vegetables.  Ingesting liberal amounts of green fruit and vegetables daily will help to maintain the high levels of red blood cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit.

4)  Drink 100ml of the pH Miracle Omega 3, 6 and 9 oil.  The ingestin of polyunsaturated oils from hemp, borage and flax will provide the necessary lipids for building the membranes of stem cells and blood cells and keeping them strong.

5)  Ingest 1 scoop of pHour salts in the morning, 1 sccop at night and 1 scoop any time the pH of the urine drops below 7.2.  The pHour salts contain four foundational mineral salts for the purpose of maintaining the alkaline design of the body fluids and reduce and/or eliminate the metabolic and respiratory acids that build-up during strenuous exercise such as carbonic acid and lactic acid.

6)  Spray the pHlavor salts orally to replace electrolytes and reduce the acids that create lightheadedness, dizziness, cold hands, cold feet, poor circulation, low energy, just to name a few symptoms of low mineral salts.

7) And, finally take 2 scoops twice a day of the pH Miracle L-Arginine Max to improve blood and lymph circulation by breaking up acidic mucous, plaque, calcifications, and cysts in the blood, lymph and connective tissue.

When an athlete follows the above recommendations based upon my clinical research for over twenty years he or she will consistantly show increases in their red blood cell count approaching or exceeding 5 million/mcL, hemoglobin increases approaching or exceeding 15 g/dl, and hematocrit increases approaching or exceeding a volume of  50 percent or higher.

The following article suggests other incredible benefits for eating and drinking daily green fruit and vegetables:

Cholesterol Lowering Drugs Cause Heart Attacks, Strokes and Diabetes!

The higher your cholesterol the lower your risk for heart attack or stroke when you are living and eating the standard acid lifestyle and diet (SAD). And, the lower your cholesterol the higher your risk for a heart attack or stroke. (1)

The first graph shows the world famous Lancet published Framingham Study after ten years and the effects of high cholesterol. The second graph shows the study after twenty years. The interesting thing is everyone knows about the first ten years but few people, including doctors have been informed about the Framingham study after twenty years. The Framingham study is the largest and longest reliable study on the effects of chloesterol on the heart and vascular system.(1)
 
Ten years later the study NOW indicates that high cholesterol is NOT a risk for heart attack or stroke. When cholesterol exceeded 300 mg/dl the risk of heart disease was significantly reduced. Eighty percent of people who developed heart disease had cholesterol less than 200 mg/dl.(1)
 
Dr Robert O. Young’s has stated in his research that all heart attacks and strokes are caused by acids from an acidic diet and metabolic acids and NOT high cholesterol. He has suggested that cholesterol, especially low density lipoproteins are created by the body to buffer and protect the blood, organs and tissues from dietary and metaobolic acids. He states the best way to protect the heart and the vascular system is to maintain the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet as outline in his book, The pH Miracle Revised and Updated.(2)
 
Just recently the Food and Drug Administration issued new safety warnings about a popular class of drugs used to control and lower cholesterol levels. The FDA says the drugs, known as statins, can cause several side effects, including cognitive problems such as memory lapses and confusion. But the agency is stressing that the side effects appear to be rare and not serious. It is Dr Robert O Young’s research that suggests taking any drug, like statin drugs that lowers LDL cholesterol without removing acidic lifestyle and dietary choices is a risk for heart attack, stroke and other dis-eases like diabetes. Dr Young has lowered cholesterol sucessfully in all cases of hyperchlolesterolemia without drugs by just changing the diet and lifestyle to an alkaline pH Miracle lifestyle and diet that restores the alkaline design of the body.(2)
 
One of Dr. Young’s research clients Maren Hale was diagnosed with familial hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglycerides with LDL’s over 400 mg/dl and triglycerides over 200 mg/dl. She was also overweight. Over a period of four years Maren lost over 70 pounds and lowered her cholesterol and triglycerides to healthy normal ranges on the pH Miracle Lifesyle and Diet. Maren and her family and extended family have been a research study of the University of Utah for familial hypercholesterolemia for over 40 years. Maren was the first of all family members to lower her cholesterol and triglycerides to normal ranges due to her commitment to living a pH Miracle Lifesyle and Diet.(2)
 

 
 
The following is an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal:
 

The FDA raised safety concerns about the popular class of cholesterol-fighting drugs. The drugs have been taken for years by tens of millions of people and include brand names such as Lipitor and Crestor. Ron Winslow reports on the News Hub. Photo: Getty Images.

The Food and Drug Administration warned that patients taking cholesterol-fighting statins face a small increase in the risk of higher blood-sugar levels and of being diagnosed with diabetes, raising concerns about one of the country’s most widely prescribed groups of drugs.

The federal safety agency said Tuesday it plans to require drug makers to add the diabetes-risk language to the “warnings and precautions” section of the labels on statin drugs.

Statins include top-selling brand names such as Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor and a dozen or so other branded and generic versions under various names. The drugs are prescribed to more than 20 million Americans a year, at a cost of more than $14 billion in 2011, according to the research firm IMS Health.

The warning isn’t expected to prompt doctors to stop prescribing statins for patients with multiple risk factors for heart attack. Cardiologists said for many patients, the benefits of statins still outweigh these risks.

The diabetes issue is “real” but “not a huge effect,” said Robert Califf, vice chancellor for clinical research and a cardiologist at Duke University Medical Center. “Informing people is a good thing, but for the vast majority of people who really need to be on a statin, this shouldn’t change what they do.”

But some physicians cautioned that the risk wasn’t insignificant and that patients at lower risk for heart problems might want to reassess whether they should remain on statins.

“The diabetes issue is a really big deal. We’re overcooking the statin use,” said Eric J. Topol, a prominent cardiologist and chief academic officer of Scripps Health in LaJolla, Calif.

In addition, the FDA said labels for statin drugs now will contain information about patients experiencing memory loss and confusion, though this side effect was classified as an “adverse reaction” rather than one of the warnings and precautions, a more serious category.

Amy Egan, the FDA’s deputy director for safety of metabolic and endocrinological products, said “these cognitive changes can be quite dramatic” and “sustained” but that they disappear when statin therapy is stopped. Dr. Egan said the agency cannot identify a specific drug or age group of people who might be prone to such cases. She said patients should notify their doctors if these symptoms occur.

Bloomberg News

Cholesterol drugs Lipitor and Zocor are arranged on a counter of a Cambridge, Massachusetts pharmacy in 2006.

The FDA made new labeling recommendations for one specific statin, Mevacor, generically called lovastatin. It said that some medicines like protease drugs used to treat AIDS and drugs for bacterial and fungal infections shouldn’t be taken with Mevacor because of interactions that may lead to muscle injury.

At the same time, the FDA announced that drug makers could remove a label warning that liver enzymes need to be monitored during statin therapy. It cited the fact that “serious liver injury with statins is rare and unpredictable” and that periodic monitoring “does not appear to be effective in detecting or preventing this rare side effect.”

AstraZeneca PLC, which makes Crestor, the only major statin still sold exclusively as a brand-name drug, said in a statement that “the cognitive issues are generally nonserious and reversible upon discontinuation” of a statin. It said reports about increased blood sugar were already included on Crestor labels.

In addition to the pure statins, products that contain statins include Advicor, Simcor and Vytorin. Merck & Co., which makes Zocor and Vytorin, said information for those drugs was “updated” in October in a way that reflects the contents of the FDA’s Tuesday safety advisory. It revised labeling for Mevacor more recently.

The FDA’s action follows analyses of large numbers of statin studies in recent years. In one, published in the Lancet in 2010, researchers looked at 13 studies including 91,140 patients. The researchers concluded that statin therapy “is associated with a slightly increased risk of development of [Type 2] diabetes, but the risk is low both in absolute terms and when compared to the reduction in coronary events.”

Cardiologists differed on how to weigh the findings, especially for the millions of people given the drugs for the prevention of a first heart attack or stroke.

Steven E. Nissen, chairman of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic, said, “There is no question that statins slightly increase the risk of a diabetes diagnosis and of slightly higher blood sugar, but I think this has no impact on the risk-benefit assessment. I know I can lower the [relative] risk of death, stroke and heart attack by about 30%” in patients at high risk of such cardiovascular events.

Dr. Topol said research suggests that for every 200 people who take a statin, 1 will develop diabetes. By comparison, 1 to 2 out of 100 patients at risk for a heart attack will avoid one, he said, adding, “That’s a very narrow margin of benefit,” he said.

Rita Redberg, a cardiologist at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center, stressed the long-term concerns about diabetes. “We know that diabetes is a significant risk factor for heart disease,” Dr. Redberg said. She said the statin-diabetes link “raises the concern that over time the diabetes risk will outweigh the cholesterol-lowering benefit on overall risk of cardiovascular disease.”
