One note on the video link below.  The use of “organic” and “natural” can be a real source of confusion, and the attached video contains some great information.  The use of “natural” on products is not always bad.  There are some great products out there that are indeed natural and contain no pesticides or GMO’s – that’s good!.  But there are some that do – that’s bad.  It is very important to read your labels and know what you are buying, and who you are buying from.

Sea Buckthorn a super berry that is gaining popularity

Russian Sea buckthorn Berry (Hippophae rhamnoides L.)  has been found to be  an extremely rich source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, flavonoids, carotenoids, and essential fatty acids!  Over the centuries sea buckthorn oil has been used as a folk remedy and food source by many Asian cultures. This amazing berry has numerous reported medicinal uses.  It has been used as a healing remedy for many ulcerative and inflammation-related disorders such as canker sores, sore throat, peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, and inflammation of the cervix.  Russian cosmonauts have even taken the oil while in orbit.

Dr. Otto Warburg

* Dr. Otto Warburg, twice Nobel Laureate, awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1931 for his research on cellular respiration, explains: “The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a relative lack of oxygen. Cancer cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment…Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body’s cells by an anaerobic (i.e., oxygen deficient) cell respiration.” Going into greater detail in The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer, he writes: “…the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements. Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes.” Compare Otto Warburg On The Prime Cause & Prevention of Cancer: Respiration of Oxygen in Normal Body Cells vs. Fermentation of Sugar in Cancer Cells.

Quotes of Nobel Prize Winners About Cancer

“But nobody today can say that one does not know what cancer and its prime cause be. On the contrary, there is no disease whose prime cause is better known, so that today ignorance is no longer an excuse that one cannot do more about prevention. That prevention of cancer will come there is no doubt, for man wishes to survive. But how long prevention will be avoided depends on how long the prophets of agnosticism will succeed in inhibiting the application of scientific knowledge in the cancer field. In the meantime, millions of men must die of cancer unnecessarily.”
Nobel Prize Winner Otto Warburg in a meeting of Nobel Laureates, June 30, 1966

Dr. James Watson won a Nobel Prize for determining the shape of DNA. During the 1970’s, he served two years on the National Cancer Advisory Board. In 1975, he was asked about the National Cancer Program. He declared,
“It’s a bunch of shit.”

“Everyone should know that the ‘war on cancer’ is largely a fraud.” Two Time Nobel Prize Winner Linus Pauling, author of several books on Vitamin C and cancer

This is not from a Nobel Laureate  but it fits

“What she (Dr. Johanna Budwig) has demonstrated to my initial disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in my practice is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE, the treatment is dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate; the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable; the precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in 1951 and is specifically correctable, in vitro (test tube) as well as in vivo (real)…” Dr. Dan C. Roehm M.D. FACP (oncologist & former cardiologist) in “Townsend Letter for Doctors”, July 1990

Linus Pauling, PhD: The Last Interview (click through to read the whole thing)

PETER BARRY CHOWKA: Dr. Pauling, could you summarize the role that vitamin C plays in human health and its importance to the health of the nation as a whole?

LINUS PAULING, PhD: Vitamin C–ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate or calcium ascorbate–is involved in a great number of biochemical reactions in the human body. Two of its major interactions are in potentiating the immune system and aiding the synthesis of the protein collagen, which is a very important substance that holds together the human body. Collagen strengthens the blood vessels, the skin, the muscles and the bones. You can’t make collagen without using up vitamin C.

One piece of evidence that made quite an impression on me 20 years ago was when Irwin Stone, PhD, pointed out that most animals, except humans, monkeys and apes, manufacture vitamin C.2 They don’t rely on vitamin pills or on foods–they make vitamin C in their liver in amounts proportional to body weight. For an adult man the proportion turns out to be on the average about 10 or 12 grams (12,000 mg) a day. That’s 200 times the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA)–200 times the amount people get in an ordinary diet! This is why I think we should be getting 200 times the amount of vitamin C that the Food and Nutrition Board recommends. The RDA, 60 mg, is far too small and indicates the importance of taking vitamin C supplements.

Dr. Pauling was almost as well known to the American public as he was to the world’s scientific community. He is the only person ever to receive two unshared Nobel Prizes — for Chemistry (1954) and for Peace

Private: Interesting observations at the Las Vegas NNFA Conference

NNFADr. Ettinger and I just returned from Las Vegas, NV where we attended the NNFA (NPA) conference. I really find these conferences interesting with all the new products and ideas – it’s just a good thing to go see. But the one thing that really caught my attention was the amount of new Goji, Mangosteen and Acai products that are being sold. We have been selling Noni now for seven years, Goji for four years, Mangosteen for three, and Acai almost two. I have to say some of the new products are not what one would expect; especially some of the, so called, “pure” Goji Juices that are being displayed. A little known fact is that raw goji juice pretty much looks like fresh carrot juice. To some this may seem odd because goji berries are reddish orange in color. What we found were thick, cooked, dark brown liquids, not cold pressed pure juice.

One particular company claims to be the first pure 100% goji, with absolutely nothing else added. First of all, the juice is a thick dark brown syrup. Secondly, it smells like a liquid mix of honey, caramel and molasses. Third, it tastes terrible. So again, knowing what 100% pure goji juice looks and tastes like, there is just no possible way what we saw and tasted is 100% cold pressed, flash pasteurized goji juice. My guess is that it is a 100% lifeless cooked down version.

One of the main reasons we have always blended our juices is because you can achieve better product stabilization and synergy without adding preservatives and chemicals. Juices just don’t do well by themselves storage-wise. But with a proper blend of certain juices and berries you can achieve a natural balance and then flash-pasteurizing the liquid you can bottle products without harming the healthful properties of the juice. Some may say that is too simple, but that it is our little trick and believe me, it took some trial and error to get it right.

There will be more to come on this topic and some new product surprises are coming soon!
