A Note From Randal

Hello Everyone,

I have chosen to repeat last issues comments, the bill is now in committee so please contact your appropriate officials to get this bill stopped. Here are the comments:

We need your help to stop some legislation that is trying to stop the existing Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. This bill has helped us to maintain our health freedoms. Now they are at it again, Congress is trying to take out the most important parts of the present legislation. They are doing this by starting a new bill HR 3156.

This bill needs to be stopped. Please go the website below and fill out their online form

If passed, H.R. 3156 would also reduce the availability of herbs and dietary supplements.  Please do what you can to stop this awful possibility.

From here in Virginia, until next time, be in good health.

Focus Attention
Soothing the Mind for ADD, ADHD, and Hyperactivity

Millions of children and adults alike suffer from over stimulated and under nourished brains. Mental under nourishment can affect the entire nervous system, as the body tries to compensate for missing nutrients. Even normal tasks can become difficult.

Mental malnutrition or imbalance is often lumped under the name Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). When hyperactivity is involved, it’s called Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Nature’s Sunshine has teamed up with Mother Nature to develop Focus Attention. This product provides important nutrients for normal brain stimulation levels. In addition, it helps modulate brain activity and energy levels. It also supports blood circulation and neurotransmitters in the brain.

FDA Issues Alert on ADHD Drug Strattera
Trials Find Link Between Medication and Suicidal Thoughts in Children

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has warned that the drug Strattera, which is used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), may prompt suicidal thoughts in children.

The agency directed the drug’s manufacturer, Eli Lilly & Co., to add a black box warning — the most serious alert — to the medication’s label. Lilly will also develop a patient medication guide.

The warning followed an analysis of a dozen clinical trials involving Strattera. About five patients reported suicidal “ideation,” or thoughts. One participant attempted suicide, the FDA said.

New Flu Vaccine Contains Mercury Which Was Outlawed

GlaxoSmithKline’s new flu vaccine Fluarix was approved for sale in the USA this fall under an accelerated FDA approval process. Another flu vaccine manufacturer, Chiron, moved closer to getting their license back; it was suspended when their flu vaccine was found to be contaminated with bacteria.

It has been six years since the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Public Health Service joined forces in requesting the removal of all mercury-containing preservative thimerosal from vaccines.

Fluarix contains mercury. How is it possible that they can approve vaccines that have a preservative that has been outlawed for six years?

Mercury exposure can cause a devastating array of problems, including:

* Multiple Sclerosis * Central Nervous System Disorders * Autism * Alzheimer’s Disease

Health Tip

A study in the British Journal of Ophthalmology finds that a tight necktie may increase risk of glaucoma by constructing neck veins, boosting fluid pressure inside the eyes to dangerous levels.

If you can’t easily put your finger in between your neck and your collar, it’s too tight.

Ancient Cooking Knowledge

Many ethnic cooking traditions have their origin in health considerations. Some of those traditions are so old their origin is unknown, which strongly suggests that the ancients had a very sophisticated knowledge of food and health, some of which is only being rediscovered today.

Throughout most of history, humans have not had the luxury of refrigeration or freezing to preserve food. And even these do not provide permanent storage for food. Meats, whether cooked or raw, deteriorate even when frozen. The cold simply slows down the process. Fat spoilage in meat is a universal problem.

Chemically, fat spoilage is referred to as lipid oxidation. Lipids in meat include fat and cholesterol. Lipid oxidation does more than give meat a rancid, warmed over flavor. Researchers believe that oxidized lipids also contribute to heart disease. Japanese research suggested that ginger, common in oriental cooking, might retard lipid oxidation in meat. Armed with this knowledge, researchers investigated whether there was any connection between the common use of ginger and Japan’s very low rate of heart disease. They found that pork patties seasoned with ginger showed only one-third as much lipid oxidation as unseasoned meat.

It appears that even before so-called recorded history, people knew that ginger helped preserve meat and keep it more wholesome. This is yet another refutation of the idea that ancient man was primitive and ignorant.

Rice Preference

The young woman really thought she’d been very patient, through a protracted period of dating with no talk of marriage.

One night her steady boyfriend took her to a Chinese restaurant. As he perused the menu, he casually asked her, “So . . . how do you like your rice? Boiled? Or fried?”

Without missing a beat, she looked over her menu at him and replied clearly, “Thrown.”
