10 Most WARNING Signs of Gluten Intolerance
Gluten intolerance, also called gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease- when it’s in its most severe form- can have symptoms that range from no symptoms to life threatening or debilitating chronic health problems and anywhere in between. Often, these symptoms are not consistent from person to person and this is part of what makes gluten testing or Diagnosing Gluten Sensitivity so difficult for medical professionals. Gluten sensitivity and intolerance can manifest as much more than just IBS-like symptoms and stomach problems. That’s why doctors are more likely to dismiss the idea that you even have this because if they don’t hear about digestive problems as your chief complaint, then it must be something else. More than 55 diseases have been linked to gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. It's estimated that 99% of the people who have either gluten intolerance or celiac disease are never diagnosed. But how can you tell if you really are gluten intolerant? For some, eating this mainly wheat-derived protein is just fine, while others experience a full range of symptoms, some of which can make life nightmarish. If you have experienced at least 7 of these 10 symptoms after eating foods containing gluten, it might be time to think about modyfying your diet.

Is Casein Protein Bad For You? Are you Addicted to Dairy?
Addicted to Dairy? The Effects of Casein Protein - Thomas DeLauer: There are different components of dairy, not just lactose! I explain the OTHER component here! http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Casein vs Whey - Dairy Addiction The majority of people are unable to properly digest dairy - symptoms such as bloating, gas, constipation and stomach pain are common, however more serious problems such as chronic inflammation and diabetes have been found. For years it has been thought that the main culprit was lactose, however new evidence points to the most common protein in milk, casein, being a leading cause for dairy intolerance. Overview (1): 1. Beta-casein proteins make up around 30% of milk’s proteins and come in one of two genetic varieties: A1 and A2. 2. A2 is the original variety, with A1 appearing somewhere around 5,000 - 10,000 years ago through a mutation found in some European herds. 3. BCM-7 is a bioactive opioid peptide which is formed in much greater levels when we consume dairy with A1 beta-casein when compared to A2 beta-casein. 4. BCM-7 has been linked to delayed digestion, gastrointestinal inflammation, pain and bloating. 5. There are opioid receptors in the nervous, endocrine and immune systems that respond to the consumption of BCM-7. (3) 6. Reactions to BCM-7 have been speculated to be factors in diabetes, heart disease, schizophrenia and autism. (3) 7. Research Bomb: A 2014 study in the World Journal of Men’s Health found that casein promoted the proliferation of prostate cancer cells, so casein is also linked to cancer. (2) How to Avoid Casein: 1. Casein is found in all dairy products, such as milk, cheese and butter. (4) 2. Additionally, to avoid casein you would want to check the label for milk and dairy ingredients. Even foods you wouldn’t expect, such as some non-dairy creamers, margarine, and lunch meats can have casein. (4) 3. In the US, food labels must include a warning if foods contain common allergy substances, such as peanuts and milk. You will see statements like “made with milk ingredients” when products contain casein. (4) Tips: 1. If you decide to avoid dairy, try to consume products enriched with calcium, such as many cereals and milk alternatives (soy, rice, etc). Leafy greens such as kale are also good sources of calcium. 2. If you do not enjoy one milk substitute, try another. There are some creamy alternatives, such as soy milk and cashew milk, as well as much thinner options, such as almond milk and rice milk. If you do not like one, you could still love another! 3. Always ask for ingredient details when you eat out to be sure you are not unknowingly served dairy. 4. Dairy free does not mean casein free, so read the label. Avoid foods that say casein or caseinate. (5) References: 1. Milk Intolerance, Beta Casein and Lactose http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4586534/ 2.

Celiac Disease and Gluten
Gluten-free foods are almost everywhere, and for a good reason – around 1% of the world population suffer from celiac disease and cannot eat gluten. What happens in the body when gluten is eaten, and why does it lead to symptoms like diarrhea, malnutrition, or even anemia? Watch this episode of Medicurio to find out! EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT CELIAC DISEASE *Are oats safe for celiac patients to eat?* Most people with celiac disease can tolerate avenins, the gluten protein found in oats. However, they should still be cautious because oats may be contaminated with gluten proteins from wheat/barley/rye, as these grains are often processed in the same factory. Discuss with a dietician or physician when deciding if oats should be included in a gluten-free diet. *What kinds of food contain gluten?* The Celiac Disease Foundation has a list here: http://bit.ly/1DtfMdL *Why are antibodies against gluten and tissue transglutaminase produced?* B cells have unique B cell receptors (BCR). Whatever the BCR can bind to, the antibodies this B cell produces will bind to. When a protein binds to a particular B cell’s BCR, it gets internalized, broken down into small peptides, and presented on MHC class II proteins on the surface. If an activated helper T cell can bind to the B cell’s MHC class II protein using their TCR, they can activate the B cell. The B cell then starts producing antibodies against the protein that was internalized. For gluten peptides, the B cell internalizes these peptides and presents them to T cells, which will recognize them with their TCR since they were activated by dendritic cells earlier with the same peptide. The B cell then produces antibodies against the gluten peptides. For tissue transglutaminase (tTG), since tTG needs to bind to gluten peptides to modify them, they often exist as one protein complex. B cells that have BCRs that can bind to tTG will internalize a complex with both tTG and gluten peptides. When they break that complex down into smaller peptides, the B cell will present both fragments of tTG and gluten peptides on their MHC class II protein. Activated helper T cells will recognize gluten peptides and activate this B cell, but this B cell will produce antibodies that are against tTG since its BCR could bind to tTG. *What are the rates of HLA-DQ2 or 8 in the world? What about for celiac disease?* Look up your country in this link for HLA-DQ2 or 8 rates: http://bit.ly/2rRhGVJ The World Gastroenterology Organisation also has a list of celiac disease rates in different countries here (click the Epidemiology section): http://bit.ly/2p9Ne67 Notice how the countries with more people with HLA-DQ2 or 8 also have more people with celiac disease! *What tests are involved for diagnosing celiac disease?* The Celiac Disease Foundation has great explanations: Blood test and Genetic Screening: http://bit.ly/2hqRIjN Endoscopy: http://bit.ly/2E0djMN *What about wheat allergies and other gluten-induced diseases?* Celiac disease is a slow, autoimmune disorder that damages the intestines. Wheat allergies occur very quickly and can result in anaphylactic shock, but damage to tissue is limited. Imagine a peanut allergy, but with gluten instead. Gluten ataxia is when the autoimmune damage is to the brain instead of the intestine, resulting in loss of motor coordination. Finally, non-celiac gluten sensitivity is a blanket term that is diagnosed by elimination – if a person’s symptoms get better after going on a gluten-free diet but tests have been negative for the previous three conditions, then they are diagnosed with NCGS. Symptoms include both intestinal and non-intestinal (headaches, depression, fatigue) symptoms, but the mechanism is unknown. *Why do some celiac disease patients develop rashes?* Medically, this rash is called dermatitis herpetiformis, and is described as an intensely itchy blistering that can occur anywhere on the body. While the mechanisms are not well understood, scientists believe that the tissue transglutaminase antibodies that are produced in the intestine eventually enter the bloodstream and end up binding to tissue transglutaminase found in the skin (epithelium). Antibodies stimulate the immune system, resulting in inflammation that causes itchiness and a burning sensation, which subsides after going on a gluten-free diet. *What is refractory celiac disease?* Refractory celiac disease describes the condition in which even after going on a gluten-free diet for over a year, the intestine does not recover and symptoms persist. It is not well understood what causes this phenomenon. If this is the case, immunosuppressants such as steroids should be used to suppress the immune system. However, most causes of “refractory” celiac disease are actually due to the patient still eating gluten without realizing it. This is why it is so important for people to know what contains gluten and what does not.

A Single Genetic Glitch May Cause All Childhood Allergies
A Single Genetic Glitch May Cause All Childhood Allergies. With regards to sustenance hypersensitivities, peanuts used to be it. Gradually in any case, the child who gave away his offer of nutty spread containers turned into the standard. As indicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nourishment hypersensitivities are ending up more typical, and in 2007, around three million kids had no less than one sustenance or stomach related sensitivity, including milk hypersensitivities, gluten sensitivities, and nut hypersensitivities. Finally, specialists may have discovered a hereditary pathway that controls them all. Sensitivities were once thought to be a response to a tyke's situation or childhood, however analysts at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center and the Johns Hopkins Institute of Genetic Medicine have revealed a hereditary glitch that they think is the reason for hypersensitive infections. Specialists concentrated on patients with Loeys-Dietz disorder (LDS), a hereditary issue that likewise makes patients more prone to create hypersensitivities. They found that a flagging particle called changing development factor-ß (TGFß) kick-begins invulnerable reactions in the event that it sends flags mistakenly. TGFß influences insusceptible cells called administrative T cells, which ordinarily help shield the body from going overboard to safe substances like sustenance and pet dander. In youngsters with sensitivities and those with LDS, these T cells really do the inverse, causing a more prominent unfavorably susceptible response. Along these lines, if various hypersensitivities come from only one getting out of hand protein atom, it might be conceivable to locate a solitary, coordinate fix for adolescence sensitivities. "It was fascinating to discover that an adjustment in a solitary pathway in individuals prompt such different unfavorably susceptible phenotypes, including asthma, nourishment hypersensitivity, skin inflammation, and...gastrointestinal illness," think about creator Harry Dietz, M.D., a teacher of solution and hereditary qualities at Johns Hopkins, told Healthline. In any case, "more work should be done to characterize the correct system by which transformations in the TGFß receptor annoy immunologic development and resistance," Dietz said. This investigation is only the initial step, yet it's much the same as finding a guide to a definitive against hypersensitivity medicate. Finding a Delicate Balance: "Earlier work in mouse models has proposed that low TGFß action can instigate an inclination for loss of resistant resilience," Dietz said. In this examination, analysts found an association amongst sensitivities and aggravation and a phone signature for high TGFß flagging. Basically, the adjust of TGFß motioning in light of nourishment and ecological allergens is extremely fragile, and too little or an excess of can bring about an unfavorably susceptible response. The investigation included 58 youngsters with LDS between the ages of 7 and 20, the majority of whom had a past filled with sensitivities, showed sporadic TGFß flagging, and had large amounts of customary hypersensitive illness markers like white platelets. Analysts speculate that their discoveries in LDS patients can be extended to included more unfavorably susceptible sicknesses in the overall public. "While these examinations impart seek that new helpful techniques after unfavorably susceptible sickness are not too far off, it is basic to decide the most ideal approaches to accomplish a gainful adjust in TGFß flagging," Dietz said.

Eczema rash | 8 Root Causes Of Eczema Doctors Never Treat - skin rashes
Eczema rash | 8 Root Causes Of Eczema Doctors Never Treat - skin rashes. Eczema includes medical conditions in which the skin is inflamed and irritated. The skin disorders cause symptoms like inflammation, dryness, redness, and scaling. Eczema is more common in babies and small children, and only 2-4% of all adults develop eczema at some point in their life. The outer layer of the skin becomes inflamed and damaged, which creates perfect conditions for irritation and sensitivity. Health experts have recognized acute and chronic symptoms: Inflamed skin, Itchiness, Blisters, Peeling, flaking skin, Cuts and cracks caused by dryness, Changes in skin color and texture, Burning caused by irritation, Main causes of eczema: Eczema is usually treated with creams and ointments, but the problem lies deep in the system. The treatment of eczema should start from the core of the problem. Treating the symptoms won’t do the trick, as they will soon come back, and you’ll have to start all over again. We give you some of the most common root causes of eczema: 1. Genes: Your genes carry information, and if you are predisposed to develop eczema, there’s no way to stop it. Mutated genes affect the production of filaggrin, a protein that protects the corneal skin layer. 2. Low sebum production: The skin dries due to insufficient production of natural oils. Genetic factors or poor immunity affect the production of serum. 3. Weak immune system: Low immune system can’t fight inflammation or ward of yeast and bacteria. Medication, autoimmune disorders, untreated infections, nutrient deficiencies, and weak intestinal function can affect the role of your immune system. 4. Allergies: Allergies trigger the release of antibodies and affect the immune response. Some foods, chemical exposure, harsh toxins, perfumes and soaps cause allergies. 5. Toxicity: Smoking and pollution leave traces of toxins in the body, and overtime these buildups manifest on the skin. Excessive use of antibiotics has a devastating effect on the immune system, and lead to toxicity. 6. Climate: People who live in cold countries or developed countries are more prone to eczema, due to dry and cold weather. Pollution and unhealthy dietary habits can also lead to the development of severe skin disorders. 7. Formula: Breastfeeding protects the baby from allergies, unlike formula-fed babies who are more prone to eczema. 8. Vaccines: Scientists are working on specific testing that would determine whether vaccines cause eczema. It may be just a coincidence, but the number of eczema sufferers has multiplied after the use of vaccines increased. This requires further research, and scientists will soon confirm the link between vaccines and eczema. Tips on how to treat eczema: Scratching can additionally worsen your problem, so try not to do it. Don’t peel dried skin either, as this may cause open sores and bacterial infections. Carefully pick your food. The same applies to skin care products and cleaning products, because some of the ingredients may cause allergies. Eat more foods packed with anti-inflammatory foods to strengthen your immune system. Use homemade eczema creams based on natural ingredients.

Bovine Milk Proteins and Human Disease: Is there a Correlation?- Daria Schooler, MD
Since the late 1990's medical literature has identified two genetic sub-types of beta casein in cow's milk. The older form of A2 beta casein varies from the more recent appearance of A1 beta casein by a single amino acid subsitution of histidine for proline at position 67 on the casein molecule. This single mutation results in a casein molecule that is metabolized by gut bacteria to yield a bioactive peptide, beta casomorphin-7, which binds with opioid receptors in the gut as well as the nervous system. Beta casomrphin-7 has been characterised not only as an opiate receptor agonist, but also as a peptide with the ability to catalyse the oxidation of LDL in a noncation-dependant fashion. The uptake of oxidized LDL by endothelium-bound macrophages has been widely implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Since A2 beta casein is not broken down into beta casomorphin-7, the risk of ischemic heart disease related to milk that does not contain A1 beta casein is suspected to be reduced. Since other factors play a role in development of type 1 diabetes mellitus, the presence of A1 beta casein in milk products is potentially a contributing factor to developing this disease, along with viral illness and vitamin D deficiency. Breastfeeding of infants and delaying exposure to cow milk protein correlates with decreased incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus in infants.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Eczema, or dermatitis, is a group of conditions characterized by inflammation of the skin. Among the many types of dermatitis, the most common is atopic dermatitis, also known as atopic eczema. Very often, when not specified otherwise, the term “eczema” is used to describe the atopic type. Symptoms of atopic dermatitis include rashes, redness, scaling, and occasionally small blisters. Depending on the patient’s age, these patches may appear on the face, scalp, neck, inside the elbows, behind the knees, on the buttocks, hands and feet. The condition evolves in the form of recurrent inflammatory flare-ups followed by periods of remission. Flare ups can be triggered upon contact with irritants such as soap, detergents, rough fabric or certain foods. A dry atmosphere, changes in temperature, dental eruptions and stress are also common triggers. Over time, the skin can become thickened, bumpy and constantly itch, even when the inflammation is not flaring up. Atopic eczema usually starts in early childhood and MAY last into adult life. Most children outgrow the disease with age but their skin may remain dry and easily irritable. Atopic dermatitis is an allergic disease. The cause is unknown but it is likely to involve genetic and environmental factors. Atopic eczema often runs in families whose members also tend to develop hay fever, asthma and certain food allergies. Most notable is the gene that encodes for filaggrin, a protein involved in water retention and is responsible for the skin barrier function. Mutations in the filaggrin gene cause dry skin and, as a result, a strong susceptibility to the disease. Eczema is NOT contagious. There is no cure for atopic dermatitis. Treatments aim to relieve symptoms, reduce frequency of flare ups and prevent skin infection. A treatment plan may include: - Lifestyle changes: bathe at least once a day but avoid soaps; wear silk clothing and avoid wool; avoid allergy triggers. - Skincare: use oil-based, fragrance-free moisturizers to keep the skin hydrated during remissions. - Medications: anti-inflammatory drugs such as steroid creams can be used during flare-ups. Antibiotics may be required if skin infection occurs.

HIV Replication 3D Medical Animation
It is a very excellent animation which explains the hiv replication very clearly. For free download of this video please visit my webpage http://3dmed.wetpaint.com/ And other 3D animation videos visit http://3dmed.wetpaint.com/page/3D+Medical+Animation+Library Regards, Dr.Rufus The Lyrics of this video is here Targeting HIV replication The replication of HIV 1 is a multi-stage process. Each step is crucial to successful replication and is therefore a potential target of antiretroviral drugs. Step one is the infection of a suitable host-cell, such as a CD4-positive T-lymphocyte. Entry of HIV into the cell requires the presence of certain receptors on the cell surface, CD4 -- receptors and co-receptors such as CCR5 or CXCR4. These receptors interact with protein-complexes, which are embedded in the viral envelope. These complexes are composed of two glycoproteins: an extracellular gp 120 and a transmembrane gp 41 When HIV approaches the target cell gp120 binds to the CD4-receptors. This process is termed attachment. It promotes further binding to a co-receptor. Co-receptor binding results in a conformational change in gp120. This allows gp41 to unfold and insert its hydrophobic terminus into the cell membrane. Gp 41 then folds back on itself. This draws the virus towards the cell and facilitates the fusion of their membranes. The viral nucleocapsid enters the host cell and breaks open releasing two viral RNA-strands and 3 essential replication enzymes: Integrase, Protease and Reverse Transcriptase. Reverse Transcriptase begins the reverse transcription of viral RNA. It has two catalytic domains: The Ribonuclease-H active site And the polymerase active site Here single stranded viral RNA is transcribed into an RNA-DNA double helix. Ribonuclease- H breaks down the RNA. The polymerase then completes the remaining DNA-strand to form a DNA -- double helix. Now Integrase goes into action. It cleaves a dinucleotide from each 3-prime end of the DNA creating two sticky ends. Integrase then transfers the DNA into the cell nucleus and facilitates its integration into the host cell genome. The host cell genome now contains the genetic information of HIV. Activation of the cell induces transcription of proviral DNA into messenger RNA. The viral messenger RNA migrates into the cytoplasm where building blocks for a new virus are synthesised. Some of them have to be processed by the viral protease. Protease cleaves longer proteins into smaller core proteins. This step is crucial to create an infectious virus. Two viral RNA-strands and the replication enzymes then come together and core proteins assemble around them forming the capsid. This immature particle leaves the cell acquiring a new envelope of host and viral proteins. The virus matures and becomes ready to infect other cells. HIV replicates billions of times per day destroying the hosts` immune cells and eventually causing disease progression. Drugs which interfere with the key steps of viral replication can stop this fatal process. Entry into the host cell can be blocked by fusion inhibitors for example. Inhibition of reverse transcriptase by nucleoside inhibitors or by non-nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase- inhibitors is part of standard antiretroviral regimens. The action of Integrase can be blocked. Protease inhibitors are also part of standard antiretroviral therapy. Each blocked step in viral replication is a step towards better control of HIV disease.

Lactose is a disaccharide, or a molecule made up of two types of sugars, in this case, glucose and galactose. Most people have an enzyme (a protein molecule that breaks down other molecules) lactase in their digestive systems. This enzyme breaks down lactose into glucose and galactose. The body can then absorb and use these sugars for energy. When someone has a lactase deficiency, lactose cannot be digested and remains in the digestive system causing a wide range of unwanted symptoms, including abdominal pain, gas, diarrhea, nausea, and a bloated stomach.

RNA Repair/Healing - I - Ribonucleic Acid - Genetic Regeneration
RNA, which stands for Ribonucleic acid, is a polymeric molecule made up of one or more nucleotides. A strand of RNA can be thought of as a chain with a nucleotide at each chain link. Each nucleotide is made up of a base (adenine, cytosine, guanine, and uracil, typically abbreviated as A, C, G and U), a ribose sugar, and a phosphate. Ribonucleic acid, or RNA is one of the three major biological macromolecules that are essential for all known forms of life (along with DNA and proteins). A central tenet of molecular biology states that the flow of genetic information in a cell is from DNA through RNA to proteins: “DNA makes RNA makes protein”. Proteins are the workhorses of the cell; they play leading roles in the cell as enzymes, as structural components, and in cell signaling, to name just a few. DNA(deoxyribonucleic acid) is considered the “blueprint” of the cell; it carries all of the genetic information required for the cell to grow, to take in nutrients, and to propagate. RNA–in this role–is the “DNA photocopy” of the cell. When the cell needs to produce a certain protein, it activates the protein’s gene–the portion of DNA that codes for that protein–and produces multiple copies of that piece of DNA in the form of messenger RNA, or mRNA. The multiple copies of mRNA are then used to translate the genetic code into protein through the action of the cell’s protein manufacturing machinery, the ribosomes. Thus, RNA expands the quantity of a given protein that can be made at one time from one given gene, and it provides an important control point for regulating when and how much protein gets made. For many years RNA was believed to have only three major roles in the cell–as a DNA photocopy (mRNA), as a coupler between the genetic code and the protein building blocks (tRNA), and as a structural component of ribosomes (rRNA). In recent years, however, we have begun to realize that the roles adopted by RNA are much broader and much more interesting. We now know that RNA can also act as enzymes (called ribozymes) to speed chemical reactions. In a number of clinically important viruses RNA, rather than DNA, carries the viral genetic information. RNA also plays an important role in regulating cellular processes–from cell division, differentiation and growth to cell aging and death. Defects in certain RNAs or the regulation of RNAs have been implicated in a number of important human diseases, including heart disease, some cancers, stroke and many others.

Is Sulfur Intolerance Making You Sick?
Do you have sulfur intolerance? Many people mistake a histamine intolerance for a problem with sulfur foods in fact. Your FREE Candida Report here: https://www.yeastinfection.org/free-candida-report/ Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand. Thanks for coming back. I often get asked by people about histamine reactions, about feeling sick or flushed in the face or nauseous and brain fog and many people think that they've got a problem with the histamine reaction. In fact, they could have a reaction with sulfur in their body. Sulfur is quite a natural compound found in a whole bunch of different foods. It's found especially in foods like garlic and onions. It's found in brassicas. You find it a lot in cauliflower and broccoli. You can even find it and watermelon. A quick Google search will show you a whole list of sulfur-containing foods. Eggs, for example, contain a lot of sulfur in them. Some people know that they react to these foods, other people don't. If we look at the structure of amino acids, or if you look in the amino acids, protein break down to building blocks. We've got carbohydrates, we've got proteins, we've got fats. But if we look at proteins and break them down, we've got 21 different amino acids. Now, two of these amino acids contain sulfur, methionine and cystine. All right? If we try and understand this, we're gonna go a little bit into chemistry here to explain, by chemistry to explain a few things to you. Sulfur's very important for the body, particularly for detoxification, because methionine and cystine drive three main detoxification pathways in your liver. Your liver has two main ways how it breaks foods down to detoxify, two filtration stages, phase one and phase two. Phase one works by virtue of a whole bunch of different enzyme systems called P450 enzymes. Phase two works with five different regulatory systems, five different pathways, I think, how it breaks foods down, or breaks toxins down. Three of those pathways rely on methionine and cystine to really help to drive them properly. Let's just have a look at those three systems. I wonder if you can see my chart here. Here we've got phase one and phase two. Sulfation, glucorodiation, and glutathione as transference. Those three pathways rely on cystine and methionine. They plug into that system. If you've got a problem with sulfur, you can have a problem with detoxification, and it can make you feel quite sick. How do you get around this? What are we gonna do about all this? What's the solution? Well, you can't really completely avoid sulfur. It's very hard to get it out of your diet. There are a couple of reasons why sulfur could be playing up with you. Let me just go back to my notes here. What you could be looking at, for example, is a genetic mutation. Some people have this. We know that, for example, with B12, we've got the MTHFR gene, so you can be homozygous or have two bad copies of the gene and that can cause a problem called CBS, or cystathionine beta-synthase. You can actually do an online search for CBS to see if you've got a problem with this particular pathway. And then, if you have, you can do that test, I believe, online, and it will allow you then to make up your mind if you wanna avoid the highest sulfur containing foods or not, which is probably not a bad idea. But, one of the most common ways people get a sulfur sensitivity is through heavy metal toxicity. If we look at the four main metals that affect people, if they've got a sulfur problem, lead, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury. These are sulfhydryl metals. These metals, in particular, can make some people really sick if they've got a buildup of them, due to their sulfur sensitivity. You can do a hair analysis to determine what your level of heavy metals are like in the body, and particularly mercury can be a really big problem if you got a sensitivity towards sulfur. That's something that you might wanna have a look at. One way you can test, if you've got a big sulfur problem, is through the organic acids test, so the O test, that's a urinary metabolite test. That will give you an idea. And the markers you're gonna find that could come back could be high sulfates, ammonia, orotate, citrate, isocitrate, or vitamin B6. These could be really affected if you've got a sulfur problem. I mentioned about the genetic test. You can do those. What do you do if you got a sulfur sensitivity? How do you get this fixed up? Well, go to Google and then do a Google search for the list of the highest sulfur-containing foods, and then try and eliminate some of those from your diet to see if it does really make a difference. If it does, and that's the only thing that you've done, you can put some of the higher sulfur-containing foods back in to see if you get aggravated and feel sick again. I hope that answers a few questions. Thanks for tuning in.

GMO Salmon What Next?   Genetically Modified Food
Did You Know Your Food is Genetically Altered? During the last five years, several multinational chemical and drug companies -- including Monsanto and Syngenta (formerly Novartis/Astra-Zeneca/Ciba-Geigy) -- have quietly altered our food supply in an alarming way. Genes from bacteria, viruses, foreign plants and animals have been inserted into corn, soybeans, potatoes, tomatoes, squash, and papayas. These corporations plan to "genetically engineer" almost 100% of our food within a decade. Already about 40% of the soybeans, 20% of the corn, and a percentage of the potatoes grown in the U.S. and about 50% of the canola (rapeseed) plants in Canada have been genetically altered. These companies have influenced US and Canadian regulatory agencies to allow these grains to be grown, mixed with non-altered grains, and sold without any labeling, even though they have been shown to be harmful to the environment and have not undergone even a single human health safety test. More than 60% of the packaged food items in US grocery stores contain genetically altered ingredients. We are now all experimental animals in a huge biological experiment involving the food we eat every day. What Have They Done to Our Food? Scientists at these companies have learned how to insert genes from plants, animals, bacteria, and viruses into any other plant or animal. For instance, Monsanto has inserted foreign genes into soybeans, corn, and canola (rapeseed) that allows farmers to spray the crops with Monsanto's toxic Roundup weed killer without killing the plant. They have inserted a gene from an insect-killing bacterium called BT into corn so that every cell of the plant has activated BT toxin in it. An Unprecedented Threat In the rush to commercialize and profit from these "inventions," these companies have exposed consumers and the environment to an unprecedented threat: The genes inserted into these grains cause the plant to create new, foreign proteins, never before seen in nature. There has never been any long-term animal or human testing to determine whether the new proteins can cause allergies or other adverse effects. Instead, the companies got FDA officials to declare them to be "substantially equivalent" to non-altered grains, even though, behind the scenes, FDA scientists disagreed. Allergy research doctors in England have seen a dramatic rise in soybean allergy, and suspect a reaction to the new foreign protein. In the case of BT corn and potatoes, European researchers have recently found that activated BT toxin, now found in genetically altered corn and potatoes, can cause cell damage in mammals. The pollen of these plants also contains the foreign genes. Pollen is carried far and wide by wind and bees. It can pollinate and transfer its altered genes to non-altered crops and similar wild plants -- biologically contaminating them -- thus creating new species (nicknamed Superweeds). BT toxin in corn and potatoes and their pollen kills non-target and beneficial insects such as ladybugs, lacewings, and butterflies. A Cornell University study published in Nature showed how the new corn pollen kills Monarch butterflies. Both Monsanto and Syngenta have developed "Terminator" genes that will create plants that sterilize their own seeds, forcing farmers to buy seeds from the companies every year. This threatens subsistence farming in developing countries, where farmers have saved and traded seeds for thousands of years. It also threatens the world's ecosystems if the genes for sterility are transferred to wild plants. Monsanto claims that the new crops have higher yields, and that genetic engineering is the only way to feed a hungry world. But university trials of these grains show that the crop yields are no better -- and in some cases are far worse -- than ordinary seeds. The only driving force behind this technology is profit for a few multinational companies who seem willing to compromise health, safety, and the environment. How to Avoid Genetically Altered Food Since significant percentages of soy, corn, potatoes, and canola oil contain altered genes, and they are mixed with unaltered food, right now there is only one way to safely avoid them: seek out products that use only certified organic ingredients. Avoid eating products that have unknown origins, such as corn cereals, corn chips, and tofu (soybean curd) in restaurants unless you know for sure that they use organic ingredients.

How To Tell If You Have Celiac Disease And You're Allergic To Gluten
Peter Green, the director of Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and the Phyllis and Ivan Seidenberg Professor of Medicine at Columbia University told us ways you can tell if you have celiac disease that makes you allergic to gluten. Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.

And we think the term "brain fog," which actually the patient started using, mean is really, can be translated into like minor cognitive defects. And there was a study out of Australia actually, that looked at individuals when they were diagnosed with celiac disease and then after a year on a gluten-free diet. And there was cognitive impairment that was equivalent to severe jet lag or driving with an alcohol level that impairs your cognitive abilities and people with celiac disease had that degree of impairment and that improved on a gluten-free diet. We evolved to eat meat and our digestive enzymes fully chop up meat protein into single amino acids. Dimers and trimers — one, two, or three amino acids. Because we didn't evolve to eat wheat, our enzymes can't fully chop up these proteins in gluten and we're left with larger amino acid molecules like up to 33 amino acids long and these will get into the small intestine, an immune reaction can be set up. Because if you have a particular genetic makeup, and have some inflammation going on, and be eating gluten, one will develop this immune response that will cause further inflammation. This inflammatory response occurs in celiac disease and can cause a variety of symptoms. In little children, it can cause severe malabsorption syndromes with stunted growth, recurrent abdominal pain, and gastrointestinal symptoms, mainly diarrhea. In adults, it may just cause osteoporosis, or iron deficiency anemia, or peripheral neuropathy. The results of this inflammatory process can be very, very diverse. The diversity of the symptoms make it hard to diagnose.

Are You Eating Too Much Dairy? Dairy Intolerance Explained w/ Dr Cabral
Click Here to Subscribe: http://Bit.ly/ThomasVid Website: http://ThomasDeLauer.com Are You Eating Too Much Dairy? Dairy Intolerance Explained w/ Dr Cabral - Thomas DeLauer Thomas DeLauer: So what is the deal with dairy? When you're on a low-carb diet, a ketogenic diet, or even when you're fasting, a lot of times people tend to bring a lot more dairy into their diet because it seems to be a little bit more satiating for them. But what I want to discuss in this video, and I brought Dr. Stephen Cabral here with me, is how dairy actually affects your body when it comes down to intolerances. We always hear about lactose intolerance or we hear about maybe inflammation associated with dairy. We don't realize that there's multiple different avenues in which dairy can be wreaking havoc on your body. Now I'm not here to say that dairy is totally bad or totally evil, but there are a multitude of different things that could be occurring in your body. Why don't you introduce yourself real quick, just so everyone knows who you are? Stephen Cabral: I'm Stephen Cabral, I'm a board-certified naturopathic doctor and I specialize in Ayurvedic functional medicine and something called bio-regulatory medicine. Just like we were talking about right there, when we're talking about, "Is it the lactose, or is it the protein or what's going on in dairy?" We can actually clinically verify what's going on with people's bodies, but we can also give them some of their symptoms as well, like, "You're experiencing this if this is going on in your body." Yeah, I look forward to chatting about that today. Thomas DeLauer: Gotcha. What we're going to do with this video is I'm going to discuss a little bit more of the casein effect of dairy and kind of the protein effect and what's happening in your body, and then Dr. Cabral is going to totally blow your mind with all his science of the fructans and the different proteins and everything like that, stuff that I couldn't bring you on my own. First off, I'm just going to touch briefly on the lactose side of things. If you have a lactose intolerance, it's a whole different ballgame than some of the stuff where going to talk about. That one's pretty simple. You lack the enzyme or you have very minimal enzymes that really help break that down. You're not having the ability to actually digestively break it down for one reason or another. Pretty simple, pretty cut and dry, that's why people that have a lactose intolerance can usually take a lactase enzyme and not have as much of an issue. But it does sort of warrant a further investigation that if we're already missing an enzyme or lacking in an enzyme to break something down, we might have more of a bio-individual necessity to really have lactase coming in from other things, which tells us that we're not able to break down milk as an entirety, not just in the digestive system. It's like if our digestive system is telling us you shouldn't be having this, then what is happening is at a cellular level? What I want to discuss really quick is there's something interesting known as BCM7 in dairy. BCM7 is a component of a particular casein protein. Those of you watching, maybe you've heard of A2 casein protein, or maybe you've heard of A1 protein, or maybe you've just heard of casein protein like a lot of stuff from the companies will sell pure casein protein. The interesting thing is first of all, casein is a very toxic protein. It's not something we should be consuming a lot of, in fact it's very, very, very inflammatory. If you're consuming just straight up casein protein, I highly recommend that you probably just throw it away or don't use it, or at least do some more investigation in it. But what happened was way back when, hundreds of years ago when we were actually first starting to utilize cattle for dairy, there was a different structure of protein that was in them and it was known as A2 protein, so it was this different kind of casein that came from the dairy that functioned pretty well in our body. We didn't have too much of an issue. But as evolution went on and as everything started to change and there are some genetic mutation and as these cows were being hybridized and bred differently, it started to change and this protein went into what is now known as A1 casein protein. That is what is the modern protein, that's what we're seeing all the time. This protein is not easy to break down. This is the protein that triggers an opioid effect in the body, so dairy can actually be just as addictive gram-for-gram as heroin and some other street drugs, pretty darn powerful, and it all has to do with that. I'm going to leave it there, I can touch on that a little bit more, but I want to turn to you to be able to discuss some of the other things you were mentioning like fructans and everything like that before.

How Allergies Work Animation. Understanding Allergic Reaction Immune System Video. Symptom Treatment
Allergens like pollen are nothing more than foreign plant antigens. The stimulus for sneezing gets triggered when allergens first enter the nasal tissue. Pollen allergens encounter the plasma cells in the nose, which respond by producing antibodies. These antibodies attach to mast cells, which are white blood cells containing the chemical histamine. As more antibodies are produced, they cause the mast cells to release histamine. Histamine then produces allergy symptoms. A stuffy and runny nose, sneezing and watery eyes help to remove the invading pollen. Medications called antihistamines may be used to help alleviate severe allergy symptoms. What Is an Allergy? It's what happens when your immune system reacts to something that’s usually harmless. Those triggers, which doctors call "allergens," can include pollen, mold, and animal dander, certain foods, or things that irritate your skin. Allergies are very common. At least 1 in 5 Americans has one. What Happens During an Allergic Reaction? It starts when you come into contact with a trigger that you inhale, swallow, or get on your skin. In response, your body starts to make a protein called IgE, which grabs onto the allergen. Then histamine and other chemicals get released into the blood. That causes the symptoms you notice. What Are the Symptoms? Your symptoms depend on how you’re exposed -- through the air, your skin, food, or through an insect sting. If you’ve got a nasal or skin allergy, common symptoms include: Itchy, watery eyes Sneezing Itchy, runny nose Rashes Feeling tired or ill Hives (a rash with raised red patches) Food allergies can also cause stomach cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea. If an insect sting was the trigger, you’ll have swelling, redness, and pain where it stung you. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Most go away shortly after the exposure stops. Mild ones may be almost unnoticeable. You might just feel a little “off.” Moderate symptoms can make you feel ill, as if you’ve got a cold or even the flu. Severe allergic reactions are extreme. Is It Anaphylaxis? The most severe allergic reaction is called anaphylaxis. It affects your whole body. Symptoms can include: Hives and itching all over Wheezing or shortness of breath Hoarseness or tightness in the throat Tingling in the hands, feet, lips, or scalp Anaphylaxis is life-threatening, so call 911 right away. If you have an epinephrine auto-injector, use it and repeat after 5 to 15 minutes if your symptoms haven’t improved. You’ll still need medical care right after you give yourself the shots, even if your symptoms seem to stop, because a delayed reaction could still happen. Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little or no problem in most people. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling. Food intolerances and food poisoning are separate conditions. Common allergens include pollen and certain food. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors. The underlying mechanism involves immunoglobulin E antibodies (IgE), part of the body's immune system, binding to an allergen and then to a receptor on mast cells or basophils where it triggers the release of inflammatory chemicals such as histamine. Diagnosis is typically based on a person's medical history. Further testing of the skin or blood may be useful in certain cases. Positive tests, however, may not mean there is a significant allergy to the substance in question. Early exposure to potential allergens may be protective. Treatments for allergies include avoiding known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended. Allergen immunotherapy, which gradually exposes people to larger and larger amounts of allergen, is useful for some types of allergies such as hay fever and reactions to insect bites. Its use in food allergies is unclear. Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people. Rates of many allergic diseases appear to be increasing. The word "allergy" was first used by Clemens von Pirquet in 1906.

Science Turns To Gene Therapy For Help With Asthma, Allergies
Australian researchers have been able to turn off the immune system response that causes allergic reactions in animals. According to UPI, in asthma and allergies, immune cells develop a form of immune 'memory' and become very resistant to treatments. Researchers took blood stem cells and inserted a gene which regulates the allergen protein. It was then placed into the test subject. Those engineered cells produced new blood cells that expressed the protein and turned off the allergic response. Moving forward, the researchers say the target population may be people with severe asthma or potentially lethal food allergies. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/06/02/Gene-therapy-could-be-key-to-turning-off-severe-allergies/2221496415272/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Food Allergies
A food allergy is an adverse immune response to a food protein. They are distinct from other adverse responses to food, such as food intolerance, pharmacological reactions, and toxin-mediated reactions. The protein in the food is the most common allergic component. These kinds of allergies occur when the body's immune system mistakenly identifies a protein as harmful. Some proteins or fragments of proteins are resistant to digestion and those that are not broken down in the digestive process are tagged by the Immunoglobulin E (IgE). These tags fool the immune system into thinking that the protein is harmful. The immune system, thinking the organism (the individual) is under attack, triggers an allergic reaction.

http://www.a2milk.com/try_a2_milk Are you wondering what the difference is between milk intolerance and milk allergy, or if there’s any real difference at all? a2 Milk® is here to help. Dairy intolerance can produce many symptoms, and not everyone with a dairy intolerance will react the same way to milk. If you have a milk allergy, within a short period of time after consuming milk or milk protein, you may experience the following symptoms: hives, upset stomach, difficulty breathing, or even anaphylaxis, which is a rare but potentially life threatening reaction. If you have a milk allergy, it should be diagnosed by a physician. For those who don’t have a milk allergy and are not lactose intolerant, but still have an issue digesting milk, the A1 protein found in most cows’ milk may be the culprit. Regular cows’ milk contains A1 and A2 proteins, and for some, the A1 may cause side effects that are similar to those associated with lactose intolerance. A potential solution is a2 Milk®. a2 Milk® comes from handpicked dairy cows that naturally produce only the A2 protein, and may be gentler on your stomach. About Us a2 Milk® is a 100% natural fresh cows’ milk from specially selected cows. It is NOT a product of genetic engineering, or a technological process. a2 Milk® works with farmers to identify and select cows that naturally produce milk containing only the A2 protein. This milk is naturally free of the A1 protein. The process of selecting these cows is done using a non-invasive DNA test that analyzes a strand of hair from the tail of each dairy cow. This process was carefully developed and enhanced over several years. a2 Milk® is milk as Mother Nature originally made it, so before you swear off milk because of a lactose intolerance, try a2 Milk®. It might just be the milk that changes everything for you.

Whats Up with Gluten - with Marc David
Read full transcript here: http://psychologyofeating.com/gluten-sensitivity-made-simple-video-with-marc-david Gluten is one of the hottest topics in the nutrition world today, and one of the most controversial. It sometimes seems like each of the experts is saying something different, and to top it all off, they’re using terms that sound similar but aren’t quite the same. Some people talk about gluten allergies or sensitivities that affect some people but not others, while others claim that gluten is toxic and no one should consume it at all. Why has a simple protein such as wheat gluten become the center of attention in recent years, and what does all this mean for you? In this fascinating new video from IPEtv, Marc David lays it all out in clear, straightforward terms. If you’ve ever wondered what exactly gluten is, why it’s supposed to be bad, and how to determine if you should be reducing your intake of this common ingredient, you won’t want to miss this video. You’ll come away with a solid understanding of the different forms of gluten sensitivity and some practical strategies for deciding how large a role gluten should play in your diet. Want a sneak peek? Read part of the transcript below: Greetings, friends. I’m Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. Let’s talk about what’s up with gluten. Now, I’m going to share with you what I think you need to know in a handful of minutes or less what you need to know about this gluten business because people are hearing gluten allergy, gluten sensitivity, gluten is bad for you. And there’s a lot of controversy in science and medicine and on the airwaves right now about what to do about gluten. So let me lay it out for you. And I’m going to try to really hit the target here. So gluten is the protein component of wheat and several other grains. So if you’re eating bread, pasta, cookies, cakes, muffins, all that sort of thing, you’re getting gluten. It’s the protein component of the wheat. Now, this is a fascinating kind of study because when you look at human history, things like wheat are roughly about 16,000 years old. So when we go back into the historic record, like when did we first have wheat in the diet, it was 16,000 years ago. That seems like a long time. But it’s a blink of an eye in the development of human history, in the development of the human body. Okay, so eating wheat is kind of like a genetic experiment that’s about 16,000 years old. Now, when someone is allergic to a food, when you hear, “You have a food allergy,” what science is saying is that you are reacting to the protein component of that food. And food allergies are a well-proven, undisputed phenomenon. We know they exist. Now, for decades, scientists, clinicians have considered gluten one of the most common allergenic substances, especially for children. So literally when allergy experts… And this is since the 1940s, started talking about food allergies, they identified gluten a long time ago. Here’s what you need to know. Food allergies are not an on-or-off, you either have it or you don’t. They can exist on a spectrum. So it’s not an all or nothing experience, meaning you can have an extreme reaction to something like gluten. And the most extreme is called celiac disease where the body cannot even handle it and it goes into absolute breakdown. Or you can have moderate or mild reactions to a substance. This is what life is like. Some of us react to the sun. Some of us can soak tons of it in. So we all have sensitivities to things that exist on a spectrum. Now, gluten sensitivity… So if you are allergic or sensitive to gluten, it can mimic just about any symptom you can imagine. This is what is blowing the minds of scientists and clinicians. So gluten sensitivity and gluten allergies can mimic joint pain. It can give you joint pain, digestive upset, brain fog, depression. It will cause these things for some people. Depression, asthma, low energy, low sex drive, attention deficit, thyroid issues, autoimmune disease, believe it or not, dental issues, weight gain, headaches, skin problems, a ton of hormonal imbalances. And that’s just scratching the surface of the list...

Gluten is a protein duo found in many plants, most commonly wheat, rye, and barley. It is a major contributor to the human diet globally and is especially key in the American diet. After all, we do love sandwiches and bagels! Gluten works in breads and pastas to give the dough an elastic texture. It helps bread rise, and it gives bagels their chewiness. It’s a very delicious protein mix, I must confess. Other grains don’t behave the same way because their proteins are different. Some people have a condition called celiac disease, a digestive disorder that renders them allergic to gluten. Other people are not diagnosed “celiac” but may have Gluten Intolerance and they may notice they feel better when they reduce or eliminate gluten from their diets. ================================================ Click Below To SUBSCRIBE for more Videos: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=joshrubineastwest ================================================ Josh and Jeanne Rubin "Revolutionizing Nutrition For Thyroid Health" http://www.eastwesthealing.com The Metabolic Blueprint Cookbook http://www.thembcookbook.com The Metabolic Blueprint Program http://www.themetabolicblueprint.com Fight Fatigue With Food Program http://www.fightfatiguewithfood.com Amazon eBooks http://amzn.to/17NIYg4 ==================================================== Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eastwesthealingperformance Twitter: https://twitter.com/eastwesthealing ===================================================== The Best Test for Gluten Sensitivity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Rs4cGaMLZo Check out our last video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ot5VGLSX2mg

Eczema - What Are The Common Triggers And Causes?
Eczema Is Irritating, Painful And Misunderstood. So What Actually Causes Eczema? Read more about Eczema causes, and potential triggers: https://www.atopis.com/blog/what-are-the-causes-of-eczema/ Check out the Atopis 100% Natural Eczema Cream: https://www.atopis.com/product/dry-itchy-skin-relief-cream/ Filaggrin: Eczema is not an allergic reaction as generally believed, nor is it due to diet, but in fact, it is caused by a lack of filaggrin, the filament aggregating protein in the skin. This protein determines the shape of the skin cells, which means that when it is lacking they struggle to fit neatly together like a jigsaw, instead there are gaps in the skin barrier, which makes the skin leaky. For some people, their body will catch up and will produce more filaggrin as they get older, while for others they have a significant lack of filaggrin for life. Genetics: Aside from lack of filaggrin, there are factors that enhance your chances of developing eczema such as your genetic makeup. Unfortunately, you’re much more likely to develop eczema if your relatives have suffered from the disease. Skin’s Microflora: Other factors to consider is your skin’s microflora, just like your digestive system, your skin has a natural skin microflora, made up of good bacteria (like probiotics), which prevent the build-up of bad bacteria. When the balance of good bacteria on your skin is lost, your immune system reacts with red, itchy inflamed skin. Without the good bacteria, your skin is vulnerable to infection, which sets you up for a vicious cycle of sleep loss and itchy discomfort, scratching, infections and further inflammation.
Single Injection of gene therapy can help turn off body's immune system to allergies
Research done at the University of Queensland discovered a way to turn off the immune response individuals experience when exposed to an allergen. Usually whatever the substance that is causing the allergy, be It food allergies, dust or pollen, has a protein that triggers our immune system, collection of cells that defend our body, into attacking it. This attack our immune system has against the protein allergen creates the allergy. Researchers are implementing ways that involve a single injection gene therapy, that involves bioengineering blood cells to target our immune system, and turn off the immune response. Researchers are thinking to implement this gene therapy injection into people with severe asthma, or lethal food allergies.

Milk - The Deadly Poison
Published on Sep 20, 2006 For More Information about Milk go to: http://www.notmilk.com/ Read Robert Cohen's book Milk The Deadly Poison Available at Amazon.com or other major bookstores. Direct Link: http://www.amazon.com/MILK-Deadly-Poi... About the Author Robert Cohen performed research in the 1970's on the hormonal effects on the brain and behavior. Twenty-five years later, this father of three became concerned about the most controversial drug approval in FDA history, the genetically engineered hormone that is now in our milk supply. Along the way, Cohen discovered that milk is implicated in causing breast cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, and chronic childhood illnesses. Cohen's skills as a researcher, and his passion for the safety of his family, led to his single-minded pursuit to expose the truth about milk. Based on his exhaustive and comprehensive research over the past six years, Cohen predicted the Mad Cow Disease outbreak. His dogged determination has set the American dairy industry on its ear. To insure that all citizens of the world learn the truth, Cohen founded and is executive director of America's Dairy Education Board, a group of nationally prominent doctors dedicated to dispelling the myth that milk is nature's perfect food. === This is a 1998 Hard Copy Special on MILK. What the government doesn't want you to know about milk. Don't drink milk, we know it contains fat and cholesterol but did you know it contains the protein CASEIN (which is basically a glue which leads to a lot of mucous build up and other health problems like asthma and congestion), milk also contains.. powerful growth hormones, viruses, a host of deadly chemical and biological bacterial agents, bovine proteins that cause allergies, insecticides, antibiotics, all this can trigger the growth of cancer and contributes to today's problem of obese children (ever notice why young girls breasts develop faster?). Cow's milk is the number one allergic food in this country. It has been well documented as a cause in diarrhea, cramps, bloating, gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, iron-deficiency anemia, skin rashes, atherosclerosis, and acne. It is the primary cause of recurrent ear infections in children. It has also been linked to insulin dependent diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, infertility, and leukemia. Milk and refined sugar make two of the largest contributions to food induced ill health in our country.
