A NOTE FROM RANDAL
ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE
The enclosed article sure brings hope to the lessening of antibiotics in our
food supply. I am really encouraged that the fast food companines are
cutting back. However, I am not sure Bayer Corporation feels the same way.
The link below will give you more details and allow you to contact Bayer and
voice your concerns.
*******************
*** Antibiotic Resistance: McDonald’s and Other Fastfood
Companies React. Why Not Bayer? ***
The New York Times reports that McDonald’s, Wendy’s,
and Popeye’s have agreed to stop purchasing poultry
products treated with certain antibiotics. Some poultry
producers are also reducing the use of these antibiotics
in the chickens they produce. Overuse of antibiotics
in farm animals increases antibiotic resistance in
bacteria, threatening human health. Bayer Corporation,
maker of antibiotics, has refused to stop selling antibiotics
for use in farm animals, despite pressure from the
FDA, Environmental Defense, and nearly 10,000 Action
Network Activists.

HERB/VITAMIN NEWS
LOW FAT DIETS MAY NOT PROVIDE
ENOUGH ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
The American Heart Association, the National Cholesterol
Educational Program of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood
Institute, and the World Health Organization recommend an
intake of saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated
fatty acids (PUFAs) at about 10% of calories. However, based
on findings of essential fatty acids (EFA) deficiency in
patients who follow these low fat dietary recommendations,
some researchers propose that the low fat government-
recommended diets for preventing heart disease do not
contain enough essential fats – the kind of fatty acids
found in vegetables, lean meats, fish, and eggs.

HEALTH NEWS
VITAMIN BOOST TO PREVENT GUM DISEASE
Most dentists specializing in treating gum disease believe
that a well-balanced diet, including certain supplements,
improves the health of teeth and gums. They suggest that
their patients take vitamin C, an antioxidant that repairs
connective tissue in gums, and calcium, which helps build up
bone around the teeth.

NATURAL MOSQUITO REPELLENT
Combine 1 tbsp. of pure vanilla extract with
1 c. of cool water. Put it in a spray bottle, and
spray on to your skin.
CLEANER AIR
To make the air inside your home and office cleaner, bring in some plants. A
NASA study found that spider plants, Golden pothos, and philodendrons absorb
as much as 80% of toxic formaldehyde through their leaves and roots.

TRAUMA AND WORRY
You may be all keyed up with nothing to fight or flee and no way to turn off
the stress chemicals. You become a ticking bomb that is not allowed to
explode-consequently, you may implode. If this happens frequently or over a
long period of time, it can have a serious effect on your health. Read how:
