NOTE: WE JUST READ AN ARTICLE THAT THE REGULAR  "ARM AND HAMMER "   BAKING SODA WE USE IN OUR HOMES  FOR ODORS IN THE REFRIGERATOR,  IS GOOD TO  TREAT MALARIA AND OTHER BACTERIA AND VIRUSES, BECAUSE IT CHANGES THE BODY ACIDITY ENVIRONMENT THAT GERMS NEED TO LIVE IN, BAKING SODA CHANGES THE ACID TO ALKALINE [  BASE- NOT ACID], AND THE GERMS DIE. DR, BAYLO SAID TO TAKE ONE SPOON OF THE BAKING SODA  IN  A GLASS OF PURIFIED WATER, DRINK  A GLASS OF THE MIXTURE  EVERY TWO HOURS. IT WILL STOP THE MALARIA AND OTHER INFECTIONS. ALSO, TO TAKE BATHS WITH THE BAKING SODA. YOU CAN BUY THE BAKING SODA IN THE PLACE WHERE YOU BUY FOODS FOR THE HOME [ MARKET OR GROCERY STORE]. THIS WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE IN AFRICA TO FIGHT MALARIA AND OTHER INFECTIONS AND VIRUSES.

BELOW  ARE LISTS  OF DANGEROUS  DRUGS THAT  ARE MANUFACTURED LEGALLY BY THE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES IN THE WORLD  FOR THE PEOPLE, AND,  ARE PRESCRIBED BY THE MEDICAL DOCTORS AND ARE GIVEN BY THE HOSPITALS TO THE PEOPLE, WITHOUT REGARDS TO THE HARMS  AND ILLNESSES CAUSED BY THE DRUGS  TO THE PEOPLE THAT TAKES THEM.

OBSERVE THAT THE  HARM THE DRUGS CAUSE ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE ILLNESS THE PEOPLE SUFFERS.

BE AWARE OF THOSE DRUGS,  YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO TAKE THEM AND TO REFUSE TO ACCEPT THE MEDICAL DOCTORS PRESCRIPTION, FOR SUCH DANGEROUS DRUGS.

 DO NOT BE AFRAID TO TELL THE DOCTOR NO!!! MANY DOCTORS ARE PRESCRIBING THE DRUG BECAUSE THE PHARMACEUTICALS PAY THEM TO PRESCRIBE THE DRUGS TO PEOPLE.  DRUGS ARE DAMAGING THE HUMAN RACE  [DNA AND GENES] AND  ARE CAUSING MANY BIRTH DEFECTS IN NEW BORN -CHILDREN, AND IN ADULTS, TOO.   THE WORLD IS GOING TO BE FULL OF MORONS PRETTY SOON, WITH THE DAMAGE  THE DRUGS ARE CAUSING  TO THE BRAIN AND NERVE SYSTEM AND ORGANS  IN THE BODY, TO THE PEOPLE THAT TAKE SUCH DRUGS. THEN, IT IS PASSED TO THE NEW BORN.

 here is a list of very dangerous Drugs!!!               RecallED AND WARNED BY FDA –  IN  U.S.A.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT  TO REFUSE TO TAKE THEM, YOU HAVE TO GAIN CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH. THERE ARE OTHER MEDICATIONS YOUR DOCTOR CAN GIVE YOU, IF NOT, THEN,  GO TO AN ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE  DOCTOR THAT WILL GIVE YOU TO TAKE HERBS AND VITAMINS.  BECAUSE MOST ILLNESSES ARE CAUSED BY LACK OF PROPER NUTRITION.
SEE OTHER  HARMFUL DRUGS LIST  UNDER OTHER ARTICLES BELOW.

·           RELATION OF DIET  drinks [ POISONS]  and depression BECAUSE OF LACK OF  vitAMIN d, VIT D 3 IS THE BEST TO TAKE SAID MY DOCTOR.

·         DIET DRINKS CONTAIN THE CHEMICAL ASPERTAME , ALSO FOUND IN ALL THE SWEETeNERS-SUGAR REPLACEMENTS DIET SUGAR-   given in restaurants such as: equaol,  sweeet ‘n low; splenda; are VERY DANGEROUS sugar replacement, because they contain the poison aspertame. it is better  TO TAKE THE REGULAR SUGAR, OR not to drink sugar replacement than to put such poisons in your drinks.. aspertame  CAUSES HEART ATTACKS, MS=MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS DISEASE,  BIRTH DEFECTS, [SARAH PALIN DRINKS DIET soda, and she GAVE BIRTH TO a DISABLE CHILD]; IT IS BETTER TO DRINK PURIFIED WATER OR COLD TEA WITHOUT SWEETNESS, GET USE TO DRINK WITHOUT SWEETNESS, or just use regular sugar, AND PROTECT YOUR HEALTH. know that sugar is the nutrition of the brain, without sugar and salt the brain cannot function properly. salt gives the electricity needed  by the brain cells to function and connect  and function properly, just like the potassium  is a type of salt that is required for the heart to function properly and the male hormone is needed too, and it is destroyed by cholesterol drugs which causes the heart attacks and strokes. wake up, learn about what kills you and what keeps you healthy. many prescribed drugs cause more harm than good to your body. most illnesses can be corrected with proper nutrition – it is caused by lack of vitamins  and minerals in the body. for example, depression is caused by lack of vitamin d- and calcium, or lack of sun light exposure, lack of vitamin b-6, b-12 and maybe the adrenalin gland is not working properly and is not producing the hormone of adrenalin due to too much stress suffered in the past or at present. this can be solved by taking the food supplement =adrenal supplement that you can purchase at the vitamins store, it has no side effects, follow instructions on bottle.

·          BIRTH CONTROL PILLS  ARE DANGEROUS,  QUOTES FROM DR. LyBOTT- “THE PILL  IS ANOTHER CAUSE OF BREAST CANCER, UTERINE, PELVIC, BONE,  AND OVARIAN CANCER, AND HEART ATTACKS, STROKES, BLOOD CLOTS IN THE VEINS AND IN THE LUNGS WHICH IS DEADLY- CANNOT BE OPERATED. IT ALSO CAUSES BIRTH DEFECTS IN CHILDREN,  CAUSES CHANGES IN HORMONES LEVELS IN THE WOMAN AND  THE UNBALANCE CAUSES SOME CHILDREN TO BE  HOMOSEXUAL BECAUSE IT INTERFERES WITH THE PROPER HORMONE BALANCE FOR FEMALE OR MALE DEFINITION.  THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL IS LOADED WITH FEMALE HORMONES AND STEROIDS,  THE EXCESS OF FEMALE HORMONES IN THE NEW BORN BABY IS THE REASON FOR SO MANY HOMOSEXUALS SINCE THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL WAS PUT IN THE MARKET IN THE 60'S.  LOOK AT THE POPULATION SINCE THE FIRST GENERATION 20 YEARS [ IN THE 80’S]  AFTER THE 60’S WHEN THE PILL STARTED TO BE USED IN THE USA.  THE BIRTH CONTROL TURNS THE WOMAN INTO A MAN LIKE BODY, CHANGING THE HORMONE BALANCE OF THE BODY, MAKING THE WOMAN TO HAVE LARGE AMOUNTS OF FEMALE HORMONES IN THE BODY , SO SHE WON'T GET PREGNANT. THAT IS HOW THE BIRTH CONTROL  PILLS WORK. THE FEMALE HORMONE  IS GREATLY INCREASED IN THE BLOOD OF THE WOMAN AND IT IS TRANSFERRED TO THE BABY IN THE BODY OF THE WOMAN.   THE PILL ALSO  AFFECTS THE NERVE SYSTEM, SINCE THE HORMONES AND THE NERVE SYSTEM WORK TOGETHER TO REGULATE THE BODY, AND AUTISM IS ANOTHER ILLNESS CAUSED BY THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL- CAUSES A NEUROLOGICAL DEFECT OF THE BRAIN PROPER FUNCTIONING.  THE FDA HAS DONE NOTHING ABOUT THESE DRUGS, EXCEPT TO GIVE  QUIET WARNINGS THAT NO ONE PAYS ATTENTION TO. SOME OF THOSE DRUGS ARE: YAZ; CAUSES SUDDEN DEATH LUNG  BLOOD CLOTS-EMBOLISM.”

·         obesity   IS CAUSED BY THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL,  FAMILY AND NO ABORTION

·         OBESITY & THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL: IT IS ELIMINATING FAMILIES IN AMERICA!! ALSO, A BIG PROBLEM IN AMERICA IS OBESITY SINCE THE 1960’S, ANOTHER PROBLEM CAUSED WHEN THE  BIRTH CONTROL PILL WAS INTRODUCED,  BECAUSE IT CHANGES THE HORMONE REGULATION IN THE BODY, IT AFFECTS THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF THE THYROID GLAND HORMONES WHICH REGULATES THE METABOLISM IN THE BODY AND FAT BURNING ACTIVITIES. ALSO THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL HAS STEROIDS WHICH ALSO CAUSES MUSCLES GROWTH AND MAKES WOMEN FAT, AND THEN, THE BABIES THAT WOMEN HAVE AFTER TAKING THE PILL,  THE HORMONES PROBLEMS PASS TO THE UNBORN CHILD AND THE CHILD WHEN IS BORN GROWS TO BE ALSO FAT, AND DEVELOPS OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS  RELATED TO THE HARMFUL EFFECTS OF THE PILL,  it changes the hormone balance in the body, of the woman that takes the birth control pill and  then, it is transferred in the blood to the new born child, after the mother has taken the pill, the same with other drugs that cause birth defects. see list in this web page.  the birth control pill have large amounts of female hormones and this creates a serious hormone imbalance  CAUSING LACK OF PROPER HORMONE FUNCTIONING IN THE BODY, AND CAUSING BABIES TO BE BORN WITH DIABETES OR DEVELOP IT IN CHILDHOOD, HEART PROBLEMS, KIDNEY, LUNG AND NERVOUS SYSTEM-NERVES [CAUSE OF AUTISM] AND EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS.  THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL CAUSES OTHER  VERY SERIOUS HARMFUL EFFECTS BESIDES CAUSING HEART ATTACKS, BLOOD CLOTS IN THE LUNGS, STROKES AND FATAL DEATH TO WOMEN.  LADIES GET WISE.  THE PILL IS DAMAGING YOUR GENES AND DNA INHERITANCE CHARACTERISTICS AND CHANGING THE  PROPER  FEMALE BODY FUNCTIONING.  KEEP YOUR  FEMALE  BODY HEALTHY  WITHOUT ANY TYPE OF DANGEROUS DRUGS, USE ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE METHODS, [ASK THE HEALTH FOOD STORE-VITAMINS STORE- [NOT THE PHARMACY- THEY ARE  LEGAL DRUG PUSHERS.] ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IS  VERY EFFECTIVE WITHOUT ANY HARMFUL EFFECT. SO YOU CAN HAVE HEALTHY  BABIES AND BE A HAPPY WOMAN AND MOTHER.  ABORTION SHOULD NOT BE AN OPTION, BE HAPPY TO BE PREGNANT AND TO HAVE THE BABY AND MANY MORE SO YOU HAVE A FULL HEALTHY LIFE.  DON’T WORRY ABOUT THEIR EDUCATION, IF THEY WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE THEY CAN GET A SCHOLARSHIP OR STUDENT LOANS, ALL COLLEGES OFFER THEM. AND ANYONE NOW CAN GET COMPUTER EDUCATION IN HIGH SCHOOL AND GET A GOOD JOB. THERE IS NO NEED FOR EVERYONE TO GO TO COLLEGE. WE NEED ELECTRICIANS AND PLUMBERS, TOO. CHILDREN WILL BE YOUR ENDLESS HAPPINESS.  MANY WOMEN WISH THEY COULD HAVE A BABY. THERE IS NOTHING MORE PAINFUL THAT WHEN A WOMAN REACHES AGE 50-60 AND REALIZES HOW MISERABLE SHE IS BECAUSE SHE HAS NO CHILDREN, OR HAD ONE AND WAS KILLED IN A CAR ACCIDENT OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ACCIDENT OR EMERGENCY. BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT CAN HAPPENS, IT IS BETTER TO HAVE MORE THAN TWO CHILDREN, ALSO SO WE DO NOT  BECOME EXTINCT.  DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD ALONE IN THE WORLD WITHOUT A FAMILY, THEY NEED BROTHERS AND SISTERS. MANY OF MY FRIENDS DO NOT HAVE ANY RELATIVES, NO BROTHER OR SISTER. THEY ARE THE LAST ONE OF THE FAMILY.  THEY ARE VERY SAD  BECAUSE THEY DO NOT  HAVE A FAMILY- NO BROTHER OR SISTER OR COUSINS.  AND AFTER CHILDREN DIE IN ANY TYPE OF ACCIDENT OR  ILLNESS SITUATION, THEN, THE WOMAN IN HER 50-60’S  DOES NOT HAVE A SON OR DAUGHTER TO LOVE AND WHO WILL CARE FOR HER AND VISIT HER AND HAVE HAPPY  FAMILY MOMENTS, LAUGHTER, DINNERS, TOGETHERNESS AND LOVE OF GRAND CHILDREN. THIS IS WHAT BECOMES THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR LAST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE. WOMEN, GET SMART, FORGET ABOUT THAT CAREER, WOMAN POWER, FEMINIST MOVEMENT,  FIRST HAVE A FAMILY, AFTER THEY ARE GROWN UP, YOU CAN GO INTO THE CAREER OR BUSINESS WORLD AND DO WHATEVER YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH.  THAT’S WHAT I DID, [ I OBTAINED  3 UNIVERSITY DEGREES AFTER I HAD MY CHILDREN, GOING TO SCHOOLS WITH THEM]  AND, NOW AT MY 70’S I AM A VERY FULFILLED, SELF ACTUALIZED AND COMPLETE HAPPY PROFESSIONAL WOMAN, STILL WORKING AND ENJOYING MY PROFESSION, MAKING LOTS OF MONEY, EVEN IN THIS DEPRESSION, AND ENJOYING  THE FAMILY AND GRAND CHILDREN. WE CAN DO IT ALL, JUST SET THE PROPER PRIORITIES SO YOU DO NOT BE SORRY LATER ON. THE NATURE OF THE WOMAN IS TO BE A WIFE AND MOTHER FIRST. THE OTHER GOALS  WILL FOLLOW. WOMEN NEED TO FULFILL THAT NURTURING NATURE IN THEM FIRST TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH OTHER THINGS IN LIFE AND TO REALLY BE HAPPY. ALCOHOL OR DOPE-POT OR ANY DRUG USE IS NOT A  HAPPY ENDING. IT MAKES YOU A SLAVE AND A VERY  IRRESPONSIBLE AND UNHAPPY PERSON WITH DEADLY RESULTS. ALWAYS THINK OF YOUR FUTURE AND YOUR GOOD MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH AS A PRIORITY IN YOUR LIFE, DRUGS DESTROY SUCH GOOD HEALTH AND LIFE.

Dr. Drew Allegedly Paid $275,000 To Illegally Promote GlaxoSmithKline Drugs

GlaxoSmithKline agreed to pay $3 billion this week in part to settle claims it paid doctors to illegally promote its drugs. Turns out, the company was allegedly paying one doctor you may have heard of.

TV and radio personality -- and famed sex advice-giver -- Dr. Drew Pinksy is included in the Department of Justice’s complaint against GlaxoSmithKline, alleging the the company paid the former host of Loveline as much as $275,000 to promote the anti-depressant Wellbutrin SR, according to Forbes (h/t The Consumerist). The complaint alleges that Dr. Drew highlighted the drug's libido-enhancing side effects in March and April of 2009, though it doesn't reveal that he was a paid spokesman.

In one particular appearance on the David Essel – Alive! radio program, Dr. Drew linked one woman’s experience of having 60 orgasms in one night to an ingredient in the drug, according to Gawker. This illegal practice of promoting drugs for purposes other than those approved by the Food and Drug Administration is known as off-label marketing.

Indeed, off-label marketing is one of the ways GlaxoSmithKline allegedly promoted its drugs illegally, accounting for about $727 million worth of the settlement. And Dr. Drew wouldn’t be the only one who’s done some shilling for GSK’s products. Notwithstanding the doctors mentioned in the DOJ’s complaint that received “every imaginable form of high priced entertainment,” celebrities such as actor Kelsey Grammer and actress Marcia Cross have been linked to promoting GSK’s products in the past, according to ABC News.

But GlaxoSmithKline isn't the only drug company to get in trouble for paying doctors to illegally promote products. In 2009, Pfizer paid a $2.3 million fine for providing doctors with various perks such as kickbacks and massages for promoting off-label uses of several of its drugs, Businessweek reports. That same year Eli Lilly paid $1.4 billion to settle similar allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal.

CHOLESTERO DRUGS- ALL ARE VERY DANGEROUS

 Dr. Mercola's Comments  ABOUT CHOLESTEROL AND HEART MEDICATION DRUGS:    VERY HARMFUL- 


 Dr. Graveline has an interesting background that makes him particularly suited to speak on the topic of statin drugs [ stating drugs are drugs to treat cholesterol ]. He's a medical doctor with 23 years of experience whose health was seriously damaged by a statin drug. His personal questions brought him out of retirement to investigate statins, which he's been doing for the past 10 years.

As a former astronaut, he would get annual physicals at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. In 1999 his cholesterol hit 280 and he was given a prescription for Lipitor.

"When they suggested Lipitor (10 mg), I went along with it because I had no reason to be particularly worried about statin drugs," he says. "I had used it a year or so before my retirement, but I wasn't a big user."

However, it quickly became apparent that something was seriously wrong.

"It was six weeks later when I experienced my first episode of what was later diagnosed as transient global amnesia," Dr. Graveline says.

"This is an unusual form of amnesia wherein you immediately, without the slightest warning, are unable to formulate new memory and you can no longer communicate. Not because you cannot talk, but you can't remember the last syllable that was spoken to you. So nothing you say is relevant anymore. In addition, you have a retrograde loss of memory, sometimes decades into the past."

He "woke up" about six hours later in the office of a neurologist, who gave him the diagnosis: transient global amnesia. He quit taking the Lipitor despite the reassurances from his doctors that the drug was not of concern, and that it was just a coincidence.

He had no relapses during the remainder of the year, but his cholesterol was still around 280 at his next physical. He was again urged to take Lipitor, and he relented.

"I admit I was concerned, but I had talked to maybe 30 doctors and a few pharmacologists during the interval," Dr. Graveline says. "They all said "statins don't do that." So I allowed myself to go back on statins but this time I took just 5 mg.

…[E]ight weeks later, I had my second, and my worst episode. In this one, I was a 13-year-old high school student for 12 hours... This is what convinced me, when I finally woke up, that something was wrong with the statin drugs. And yet, the doctors were, for years after that, still saying that this was just a remarkable coincidence.

This took me out of retirement and I've been actively involved in researching statin drugs ever since."

Statin Drugs: Not Nearly as Safe as You're Told

Dr. Graveline has since published a book about his discoveries called Lipitor: Thief of Memory.

"In trying to reach an explanation, I called Joe Graedon and asked him if he had ever heard of any unusual reactions associated with statins," Dr. Graveline says of his initial investigations.

He was directed to the statin effects study by Beatrice Golomb in San Diego, California, and his story was also published in a syndicated newspaper column. Within weeks, the web site he had created received reports of 22 cases of transient global amnesia, along with hundreds of cases of cognitive damage. At present, over 2,000 cases of transient global amnesia associated with the use of statins have been reported to FDA's MedWatch.

But cognitive problems are not the only harmful aspect of these drugs. Other serious adverse reactions include:

·     Personality changes / mood disorders

·     Muscle problems, polyneuropathy (nerve damage in the hands and feet), and rhabdomyolysis (a serious degenerative muscle tissue condition)

·     Sexual dysfunction

·     Immune suppression

·     Pancreas or liver dysfunction, including a potential increase in liver enzymes

·     Cataracts

According to Dr. Graveline, a form of Lou Gehrig's disease or ALS may also be a side effect, although the US FDA is resistant to accept the link found by their Swedish counterpart, and has so far refused to issue a warning.

"The World Health Organization (WHO) reported on this in July 2007 when Ralph Edwards, who directs the Vigibase in Sweden (the equivalent of the US MedWatch), reported ALS-like conditions in statin users worldwide," Dr. Graveline says.

He has since forwarded hundreds of cases to MedWatch, but the FDA still has not been moved to act, and doctors are therefore unaware of the connection between this deadly disease and statin use.

"[W]e have anecdotal evidence that if you stop the statin drug early enough, some of these cases regress. That's why we thought it was important that FDA issue a warning, but they haven't," Dr. Graveline says.

Today, all of these adverse effects, including the cognitive problems Dr. Graveline warned about 10 years ago, are supported by published research. MedWatch has received about 80,000 reports of adverse events related to statin drugs, and remember, only an estimated one to 10 percent of side effects are ever reported, so the true scope of statins' adverse effects are still greatly underestimated.

For a more in-depth explanation of how statins damage your mitochondria and DNA, resulting in a variety of health problems, please listen to the interview in its entirety or read through the transcript as he discusses far more than I can include here.

How Statins Harm Your Brain Function

As is often the case with pharmaceutical drugs, the side effects end up teaching us new things about how the human body works. When statins first hit the market, conventional medicine was unaware of the importance of cholesterol for proper brain function. Now, researchers believe that statins' adverse effects on cognition are due to cholesterol insufficiency.

Research also began to emerge in 2001 showing the importance of cholesterol in the formation of memories.

"Then we have… dolichols," Dr. Graveline says. "[W]hen a statin is used, it blocks the mevalonate pathway to get at cholesterol inhibition. It works very beautifully. But in so doing, it blocks CoQ10, dolichols, as well as other major biochemicals…

[D]olichol is one that most doctors have never even heard of before, but it just so happens that dolichols are almost as important as CoQ10 and cholesterol in cell processing."

In fact, dolichols are vital to a number of cellular processes, including:

·     Glycoprotein synthesis

·     Cell identification

·     Cell communication

·     Immunodefense

·     Neurohormone formation

Dr. Graveline goes on to explain that dolichols influence all the hormones involved with your mental condition, including your emotions and moods. And if you do not have sufficient dolichol, your entire process of neurohormone production will be altered—with potentially devastating results.

"[T]here are thousands of reports of aggressiveness and hostility, increased sensitivity, paranoia, depression and homicidal ideation," Dr. Graveline says.

There are also numerous reports of suicide.

"This whole range of what I call personality- or emotion and behavioral responses have to do with the dolichol deficiency brought on by the mevalonate blockade," Dr. Graveline explains.

"It's not just something that occurs in an occasional person… You know we're all the same and yet we're all different… You give one medicine to 10 people and if you're really lucky, in six of them it will do what it's supposed to do. That's the way it is with this. I expect there are some people that won't get any effects of dolichol suppression because they have alternative pathways. The same thing probably holds for CoQ10."

That said, it's important to realize that your brain also requires cholesterol in order for memory formation to function normally. In essence, statins suppress a number of vital elements for proper brain functioning, including cholesterol, antioxidants and co-factors like CoQ10, and dolichol.

At the same time, statins also create mitochondrial DNA and cellular damage, including in your brain.

Your brain uses glial cells as factories for producing its own cholesterol on demand. Unfortunately, glial cells are affected by statins in the same way as your liver cells, or any other cell in our body. So if you take a statin, you're also harming your glial cells and when they cease to function normally, that on-demand cholesterol capability also ceases and your brain can no longer function properly.

The Importance of CoQ10 or, if You're Over 40, Ubiquinol

It's now clear that if you take statin drugs without taking CoQ10, your health is at serious risk as statin drugs deplete your body of this essential co-enzyme. As your body gets more and more depleted of CoQ10, you may suffer from fatigue, muscle weakness and soreness, and eventually heart failure. Coenzyme Q10 is also very important in the process of neutralizing free radicals.

So when your CoQ10 is depleted, you enter a vicious cycle of increased free radicals, loss of cellular energy, and damaged mitochondrial DNA.

Unfortunately, the majority of people who take statins are unaware of their need for CoQ10, and physicians rarely advise their patients to take this supplement along with their statin—at least in the United States. It's also important to supplement right from the start. According to Dr. Graveline, once the mitochondrial damage and mutations are formed they cannot be reversed—no matter how much CoQ10 you take.

So early intervention is key. (Dr. Graveline goes into further detail of how CoQ10 offers protection against mitochondrial DNA damage in this interview, so for more information, please listen to it in its entirety.)If you decide to take a CoQ10 supplement and are over the age of 40, it's important to choose the reduced version, called ubiquinol.

Ubiquinol is a FAR more effective form—I personally take 1-3 a day as it has far-ranging health benefits. Dr. Graveline concurs with this recommendation.

As for dosage, Dr. Graveline makes the following recommendation:

·     If you have symptoms of statin damage such as muscle pain, take anywhere from 200 to 500 mg

·     If you just want to use it preventively, 200 mg or less should be sufficient

There's also evidence that CoQ10/ubiquinol is beneficial for Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, and even cancer, and that large doses may be justified in those cases as well.

In addition, CoQ10 is believed to play an important role in preventing premature aging in general by preventing telomere shortening, which can slow or potentially even reverse the aging process. This is just one of the additional benefits of CoQ10, and one of the reasons why I take ubiquinol daily even though I've never been on a statin drug.

There are no reported side effects of CoQ10 supplementation, and neither I nor Dr. Graveline have ever heard of anyone overdosing on it. The only drawback is cost.

However, if you're taking ubiquinol, here's some cost-saving information for you.

Certified reduced ubiquinol is only manufactured by one company in the entire world, a Japanese company called Kaneca. They own the patent. So, as long as it's certified ubiquinol, you can buy the cheapest brand you can find, because they're all the same.

Other Valuable Antioxidants for Optimal Health—Especially if You're Taking a Statin

CoQ10, or preferably the reduced version, ubiquinol, is at the top of the list of important supplements when you're taking a statin drug. But there are also other antioxidants and nutrients that can be helpful. For example, selenium is also seriously inhibited by statin drugs, and selenium, along with magnesium, are commonly involved as co-factors in a variety of biological functions.

Other important nutrients include:

·     VitaminC

·     Vitamin D

·     Vitamin E—An emerging form of vitamin E called tocotrienol is 50 times more powerful than tocopherol, which has been used for the past 60 years. It also helps produce cholesterol and has other biochemical advantages

·     Alpha-lipoic acid

·     L-carnitine—which helps metabolize fats properly. Since about 70 percent of your muscles' energy comes from fats, it's important to have the ability to metabolize them. INSERT LINE BREAK According to Dr. Graveline: "If you take L-carnitine and find that you suddenly feel much better, then you've just proven you need it for the rest of your life because you're one of those people who have a dysfunction in this capability; you don't have the means to properly burn fats at our muscle level… naturally you would then get weak when exercising. So it's useful for making a diagnosis. If nothing happens after three months of a good dose, then I would say you can forget about L-carnitine."

The Sad Truth: Even Your Doctor has Been Mislead About Cholesterol

That said, aside from taking CoQ10 if you're on a statin, your diet really should be your primary source of nutrients. (For vitamin D, you'd ideally get it from sun exposure.) Supplements are just that; supplemental to an otherwise healthy diet.

"I think that when you have a statin associated muscle or nerve or even brain dysfunction, this is where you've got to go because that's where the trouble is," Dr. Graveline agrees.

"[I]f it's cholesterol inhibition, you just eat more eggs… I can't believe I went 17 years and never ate an egg. I can't believe how gullible I was. I was this young medical doctor; I marched to that band of the cholesterol-causation people… I did everything I was supposed to do, and it was all wrong. I can't believe that I was led astray, maybe for 25 years of my practice! It's so bad to have to look back and realize you've been treating cardiovascular disease erroneously because you were doing what you were asked to do.The sad truth is that cholesterol, our supposed enemy for 35 years, has nothing to do with cardiovascular disease. it is the most important biochemical in your body.

… We all listened to what amounts to brainwashing. The brainwashing that we got from 1955 on, to just recently… They have liberalized the diet stuff recently though, so people are back to eating eggs and drinking whole milk and eating butter. I went around recommending margarine for so long, and margarine is what's causing disease—butter is what's helping to cure it. It's incredible!"

This is true for the majority of our conventional medical professionals. They simply do not know better… which is all the more reason to arm yourself with the information you need to take control of your own health. Shunning statin drugs and addressing your lifestyle is the way to go if you have high cholesterol. For more information, please see my statin index page which includes a plethora of free guidance and clear advice.

More Information

Dr. Graveline covers a lot of information in this interview, so I highly recommend you listen to the entire interview, or read through the transcript. You can also find more information on his web site: www.SpaceDoc.net .

Dr. Graveline's site serves both as a tool for reporting statin complications, and a database of adverse effects, which are then forwarded to the appropriate agencies.

Cholesterol  list of drugs in market

medications  THAT ARE dangerous

that many millions more should be taking them.

I couldn't disagree more.

Statins are HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, that is, they act by blocking the enzyme in your liver that is responsible for making cholesterol (HMG-CoA reductase). The fact that statin drugs cause side effects is well established—there are now 900 studies proving their adverse effects, which run the gamut from muscle problems to increased cancer risk.

For starters, reported side effects include:

·     Muscle problems, polyneuropathy (nerve damage in the hands and feet), and rhabdomyolysis (a serious degenerative muscle tissue condition)

·     Anemia

·     Acidosis

·     Sexual dysfunction

·     Immune depression

·     Pancreas or liver dysfunction, including a potential increase in liver enzymes

·     Cataracts

Muscle problems are the best known of statin drugs' adverse side effects, but cognitive problems and memory loss are also widely reported. A spectrum of other problems, ranging from blood glucose elevations to tendon problems, can also occur. There is evidence that taking statins may even increase your risk for Lou Gehrig's disease.

Statins currently available on the U.S. market are:

·     Advicor  (lovastatin with niacin) – Abbott

·     Altoprev (lovastatin) – Shionogi Pharma

·     Caduet [atorvastatin with amlodipine (Norvasc)] – Pfizer

·     Crestor (rosuvastatin) - AstraZeneca

·     Lescol (fluvastatin) – Novartis 

·     Lipitor (atorvastatin) - Pfizer

·     Mevacor (lovastatin) – Merck

·     Pravachol (pravastatin) -- Bristol-Myers Squibb

·     Simcor (niacin/imvastatin) – Abbott

·     Vytorin (ezetimibe/simvastatin) – Merck/Schering-Plough

·     Zocor (simvastatin) – Merck

Ninety-Nine Out of 100 People do Not Need Statin Drugs

That these drugs have proliferated the market the way they have is a testimony to the power of marketing, corruption and corporate greed, because the odds are very high— greater than 100 to 1—that if you're taking a statin, you don't really need it.

The ONLY subgroup that might benefit are those born with a genetic defect called familial hypercholesterolemia, as this makes them resistant to traditional measures of normalizing cholesterol.

And, even more importantly, cholesterol is NOT the cause of heart disease

If your physician is urging you to check your total cholesterol, then you should know that this test will tell you virtually nothing about your risk of heart disease, unless it is 330 or higher.

HDL percentage is a far more potent indicator for heart disease risk. Here are the two ratios you should pay attention to:

1.HDL/Total Cholesterol Ratio: Should ideally be above 24 percent. If below 10 percent, you have a significantly elevated risk for heart disease.

2.Triglyceride/HDL Ratio: Should be below 2.

I have seen a number of people with total cholesterol levels over 250 who were actually at low risk for heart disease due to their elevated HDL levels. Conversely, I have seen many people with cholesterol levels under 200 who had a very high risk of heart disease, based on their low HDL.

Your body NEEDS cholesterol—it is important in the production of cell membranes, hormones, vitamin D and bile acids that help you to digest fat. Cholesterol also helps your brain form memories and is vital to your neurological function.

There is also strong evidence that having too little cholesterol INCREASES your risk for cancer, memory loss, Parkinson's disease, hormonal INBALANCE.

Ban of Controversial Painkiller Dramatically Cuts Suicides in UK

Filed Under Big Pharma, Medical Maiming 

David Gutierrez
NaturalNews

The withdrawal of a popular painkiller from the market in the United Kingdom has led to a dramatic decrease in the number of suicides and accidental overdoses in that country, according to a study conducted by researchers from Oxford University’s Centre for Suicide Research and published in the British Medical Journal.

The drug in question is a combination of the narcotic painkiller dextropropoxyphene (in the opioid family) with the over-the-counter painkiller acetaminophen, also known as paracetamol or Tylenol. In the United Kingdom, the drug was marketed as co-proxamol, but it is also known as Darvon with APAP, Capadex, Di-Antalvic, Di-Gesic and Lentogesic.

In 2005, the British Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) decided to remove co-proxamol from the market after statistics emerged suggesting that the drug was particularly dangerous, causing between 300 and 400 self-poisoning deaths every year. Approximately 80 percent of these deaths were intentional suicides.

The agency instructed doctors to phase out use of the drug by 2007, and over that period prescriptions of co-proxamol fell 59 percent and deaths from the drug fell 62 percent. This translated into 295 fewer suicides and 54 fewer accidental overdoses from the drug. Significantly, there was no concurrent increase in suicides or accidental overdoses from other painkillers, even though use of those drugs increased correspondingly.

“This marked reduction in suicides and accidental poisonings involving co-proxamol during this period, with no evidence of an increase in deaths involving other analgesics, suggests the initiative has been effective,” lead researcher Keith Hawton said.

“Co-proxamol is extremely dangerous in overdose — only a small overdose can be fatal, and death can occur very rapidly — before medical attention can be sought,” an MHRA spokesperson said. “[In addition,] there is no robust evidence that co-proxamol offers any advantage over paracetamol or ibuprofen at normal doses.”

The FDA is currently considering whether to withdraw the drug from the U.S. market.

 THIS IS THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE FALSEHOOD OF THE MEDICAL PROFESSION AND  THE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES ABOUT CHOLESTEROL, AS EXPRESSED BY  THE  EXPERIENCED  MEDICAL DOCTOR – DR. CAMPBELL.  BE AWARE AS TO HOW THE MEDICAL PROFESSION MISINFORM THE PEOPLE.

QUOTE:

“ DR CAMPBELL CHOLESTEROL IS GOOD.  I'm not just talking about raising "good" (HDL) cholesterol. I mean total cholesterol and I think it should be ABOVE 200.  It could save your life.  Yes, I realize that mainstream medicine has been ordering patients to lower their cholesterol more and more until they reach that "magic" range of 160.”

But, I make sure my levels are always above 200 (I aim for 300), and I've outlived many of my mainstream peers-and indulged in life's pleasures the whole time.  As usual, mainstream science is turning in my favor and backing up my carefree lifestyle. See for yourself...

1. HIGHER cholesterol makes you far less likely to die...                                    FACT: Lowering cholesterol can make heart disease worse. A review of medical studies on cholesterol and mortality in heart patients found that lower cholesterol levels led to death ––not survival, like the drug companies want you to think.

FACT: Low cholesterol can trigger the deadliest kind of stroke. It's called a massive stroke and it happens when blood vessels in your brain are so weak, they burst open. Any cholesterol count below 200 is a red flag for this kind of stroke.

FACT: Low cholesterol may raise your cancer risk. Yes, a new study actually links low LDL levels with an increased risk of developing cancer. And it's not the first one. In fact, more than 20 studies have been done on cholesterol and cancer. And the overall majority linked cancer with low cholesterol!

How could all this be so? For the same reason that your body makes its own cholesterol. It's a vital nutrient! Cholesterol is a necessary building block for your immune system and especially your brain cells. In fact...

2. HIGHER cholesterol may improve your memory, stave off depression and even protect you from Alzheimer's...                                     Believe it or not, healthy brain cells are chock full of cholesterol. Yup, 25% of your body's cholesterol is in your brain. It fuels the electrical impulses that make thinking possible. Plus, studies show...

FACT: Low cholesterol impairs brain function. It's been linked to depression. And cholesterol-lowering drugs have been shown to trigger memory loss . (Drug companies want us to forget this -- and we may – if we keep taking statin drugs!)

FACT: Low cholesterol is linked to Alzheimer's. The eminent researcher Iwo J. Bohr recently published a peer-reviewed paper on the subject. He points out that Alzheimer's patients typically have lower cholesterol and suggests that a great way to prevent the disease may be to eat a high cholesterol diet .

FACT: Low cholesterol is even linked to suicide -- and it's not just because folks are fed up with celery and tofu! The real reason is probably that low cholesterol literally makes you crazy!

And now for some upbeat news...

3. HIGHER cholesterol could super-charge anyone's sex life...  Why? Because cholesterol is the "raw material" for your sex hormones. Without it, you can't manufacture testosterone, women can't make estrogen––and none of us would have any more sex drive than an earthworm!!!! “

Now aren't you ecstatic that your cholesterol is over 200?               If it isn't, think of all the fun you'll have getting it back up to healthy levels! Just let me send you all the good news about how to stay healthy, heart-attack-free, sharp as a tack and horny as a goat in your FREE Report, "Just Say No To Junk Medicine." It's one of 5 FREE gifts that will help you heal all your health miseries...                                                                                                              So who am I to be swinging this ax?   I'm William Campbell Douglass, M.D.          I've been called 'the conscience of modern medicine,' and the National Health Federation voted me 'Doctor of the Year.'     I've also been labeled a 'maverick,' and several less flattering names too, but hey, that's part of the territory. And friend, my territory is everywhere...                           I've flown with US Navy crews as a Flight Surgeon...  *Saved lives as a long-time emergency physician...  *  Battled malaria in bullet-torn regions of Central America...                                                              *Fought deadly epidemics at my own health clinic in Africa...  Worked alongside doctors at Russia's renowned Pasteur Institute...    I've even been called before Congress (they never asked me back)...

 AVANDIA DIABETIS DRUG MEDICATION  THAT KILLS AND OSTEPOROSIS DRUGS THAT CAUYSES BONES TO BREAK. BUT THIS DRUG IS SUPPOSED TO STOP BONES FROM BREAKING AND LOSING BONE DENSITY!!!!

American taxpayers finance nearly one-fourth of the budget for the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an international bureaucracy that routinely advocates for more government - including more taxes and spending in the United States. In just the past couple of years, the OECD has used American tax dollars to advocate Obamacare-type health policies, push for failed Keynesian stimulus spending, promote Al Gore-style carbon taxes, and urge the enactment a value-added tax. This CF&P Foundation video advocated in order to reduce wasteful spending and protect America's free market system, American subsidies for this Paris-based bureaucracy should be eliminated. www.freedomandprosperity.org     

On May 21, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration issued a public safety alert about the diabetes drug Avandia, warning users of the greatly increased risk of heart failure in people taking the drug. The notice came on the heels of a New England Journal of Medicine study, which found people who took the drug had a 43% increase in the risk of heart attack and a 64% increase in the risk of death from all cardiovascular causes.

The FDA also ordered Avandia's maker, GlaxoSmithKline, to add a prominent "Black Box" warning to the drug's packaging to tell users about the increased risks of congestive heart failure and cardiovascular disease.

The FDA warnings also cautioned Type 2 diabetes patients who have underlying heart disease or are at high risk of heart attack to talk with their health care provider about their treatment options. Physicians and other health care providers were cautioned to closely monitor patients who take Avandia for cardiovascular risks.

Other Avandia Side Effects

Avandia patients should contact their physician if they experience any of the following conditions:

  • Swollen legs or ankles

  • Rapid, unexplained weight gain

  • Tiredness

  • Changes in vision

  • Shortness of breath

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Chest pains

  • Dizziness

Watch for Signs of Heart Failure     People being treated for Type 2 diabetes are at risk of suffering heart failure or other negative side effects from Avandia. The drug is commonly prescribed to diabetes patients and has proven successful in promoting a patient's response to insulin treatments. After beginning Avandia or increasing your dosage, patients should be carefully monitored for signs and symptoms of heart failure. The symptoms of heart failure may include:

  • Excessive, rapid weight gain

  • Edema (swelling)

September 14, 2010 – Osteoporosis drugs linked to leg


 and hip fractures!

The Osteoporosis drugs are:

·         Fosamax®

·         Fosamax-D®

·         Boniva®

·         Actonel®

·         Aredia®

·         Didronel®

·         Reclast®

·         Skelid®

By Dr. Mercola    [ FRUCTOSE AND GLUCOSE]  THE BATTLE- SWEERNERS CORN SYRUP

fructose, alternative sweetenerMany people interested in staying healthy have switched to agave as a safer "natural" sweetener. They want to avoid well documented dangerous sweeteners like HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) but are unaware that most agave is actually WORSE than HFCS.

Once I realized this, I wrote a special report on agave to inform the public of this danger. I was somewhat surprised that the report would prompt such a firestorm of debate within the industry.

A number of natural agave manufacturers and health conscious consumers still proclaim agave is a safe, all-natural sweetener that is good for everyone.

Some have even criticized me for having ulterior motives. But nothing could be further from the truth. Although I do offer natural health products for sale on this site, I sell no competing products to agave.

Rather, I recommend other options such as stevia products. You can also use xylitol in small amounts or glucose, which is sold commercially as dextrose, and can easily be purchased on Amazon for $1 per pound. I do not sell any of these products.

My only purpose for sharing this information is to help people understand the truth about health. In case you haven't noticed, we have an epidemic of obesity in the US and it wasn't until recently that my eyes opened up to the primary cause -- fructose.

Yes, it is all about freedom of choice. It is hard to have freedom if you aren't given the entire story, and up until now that has been the case with agave.

Are Natural Agave Products Any Better?

Some agave manufacturers were quite upset with our article -- to put it mildly.

To be fair, I decided to actually purchase three of the most popular "natural" agave products and have them independently tested, at our expense, at a reputable third party commercial laboratory.

The three products I sent off to the lab were:

1.    NOW Foods Organic Amber Agave Nectar

2.    Madhava Agave Nectar

3.    Wholesome Sweetener Organic Blue Agave

There was no particular reason I chose these three brands, other than they are the products I've seen advertised and heard mentioned most often by agave syrup users.

And the Winner is: None of the Above!

The results support my point that they are ALL quite high in fructose, ranging from 59 to 67 grams of fructose per 100-gram sample.

It is important to note that high fructose corn syrup has 55 percent fructose. As you can see below, every one of these products far exceeded the fructose in high fructose corn syrup by considerable amounts. 

The other variable that needs to be considered is whether or not the fructose is conjugated to glucose or another sugar molecule, as this would moderate the detrimental effects of fructose somewhat.

High fructose corn syrup fructose is 55 percent free floating fructose totally dissociated from glucose. This is also the case in nearly all the lower quality agave products as they are highly processed.  Some of the higher quality agave products may be processed in a way that preserves the fructose bonding and thus somewhat limits its damage.

We did not test for fructose conjugation in our test, but even if it were, the Wholesome Sweetener Organic Blue Agave had 21 percent more fructose than high fructose corn syrup.

Fructose is Fructose

I have written about the dangers of sugar for quite some time, and of course, variables like exercise and calorie intake play a role in obesity. But more recently, I have gained access to evidence specific to fructose and its primary role in creating obesity -- evidence that is VERY hard to ignore.

I am fully convinced that if we can educate the public about how fructose is different from other sugars metabolically, we can actually reverse and eventually eliminate the obesity epidemic.

The evidence is overwhelming.

I would encourage those of you who remain doubtful that fructose is any worse than any other sugar to look at the work done by Dr. Richard Johnson, chief of the kidney disease and hypertension department at the University of Colorado, and author of The Sugar Fix, one of the best books on the market on the health dangers of fructose—specifically, how fructose causes high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and kidney disease.

One of the surprising facts discussed in my first interview with Dr. Johnson is how detrimental the impact of fructose is on your uric acid level.

For those of you who maintain that "a sugar is a sugar is a sugar," fructose -- and fructose ALONE -- drives up uric acid. The connection between fructose, uric acid, hypertension, insulin resistance/diabetes and kidney disease is so clear that your uric acid level can be used as a marker for toxicity from fructose.

According to Dr. Johnson:

"We've just finished a clinical trial where we gave a low fructose diet to overweight and obese adults from Mexico City. 

"We tried two different low fructose diets, but first, before we go into that, we think that the effects of fructose are independent of its energy intake. So,table sugar (sucrose) -- which contains fructose and glucose -- although there is a caloric component, we think that the effects of fructose are not specifically related to the calories but rather to its mechanism, of which uric acid is a driving part.

"... [Uric acid levels] being too high seems to really increase the risk for diabetes and high blood pressure, kidney disease and obesity. And in fact, there are more and more papers coming out showing that connection."

If you doubt fructose is the leading contributor to obesity, then I urge you to watch an excellent video presentation by Dr. Robert H. Lustig, M.D. of the University of California San Francisco, Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, which masterfully illustrates just exactly HOW the liver's breakdown of fructose leads to obesity and chronic disease.

Much of the fructose you eat is literally stored as fat. The carbohydrate fructose is converted into fatty acids (lipogenesis), which is then stored in your body's fat cells as fat.

Back to the Agave Issue

Now, getting back to the agave syrup issue.

Some readers' comments on the original agave article indicated to me that some missed the point of what I was saying about agave use. So let me restate my position more carefully.

It largely boils down to a quantity issue.

You need to keep your daily dose of ALL fructose down to below 25 grams per day. Additionally, you can use your blood uric acid level as a marker of sensitivity to fructose. If your uric acid level is above 4 mg/dl for men and 3.5 mg/dl for women, you are probably better off avoiding fructose in most forms.

I have nothing against the agave plant.

Like many plants, the agave undoubtedly has many different phytochemicals with health-supporting properties. The problem lies in the processing, which, like any food processing, destroys most of these nutrients. Obviously, branded products undergo different amounts and types of processing, under different temperatures, etc.

What you're left with, then, is a high-fructose syrup, similar metabolically to high fructose corn syrup in terms of metabolic impact. Regardless of the organic-ness, regardless of the care taken in processing, regardless of the overall quality -- agave syrup is mostly fructose. Plain and simple.

But even this is not a problem, IF your syrup is free of chemicals, and IF you are using it in very small quantities, and IF you have no issues such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, kidney or heart disease.

Unfortunately, most people cannot satisfy all those IFs.

If you are diabetic or insulin resistant, you'll want to avoid these concentrated sugars altogether, regardless of the product quality. 

If you are among the fortunate few without any of those health problems, congratulations! You're definitely doing something right. Just keep your overall fructose usage below 25 grams per day, agave syrup included. One teaspoon of agave syrup has 4 grams of fructose.

Naturally, agave syrup brands are going to differ quite a bit in quality, as all products do. If you are going to use it, you'll have to judge for yourself what is true quality versus marketing hype.

Agave's Favorable Glycemic Index is Meaningless

The fact that agave has a favorable glycemic index (GI) is often mentioned in its defense. But GI does not tell the entire story.

Agave syrup and other high-fructose sweeteners have metabolic consequences that aren't measured by an immediate insulin spike. This is why I have never advocated using the GI to select your foods.

It is possible to have a low fasting glucose yet have significantly elevated insulin levels.

In fact, some people with particularly robust insulin responses actually have very normal blood glucose levels because their insulin suppresses blood glucose for some time. If this is going on, you are essentially pre-diabetic and should reduce or eliminate fructose altogether. But you would never know it by just spot-checking your blood sugar after consuming a dose of agave syrup!

On the topic of agave, Dr. Johnson made the following recommendation:

"We have not done any specific research with agave or with honey. But I do believe that those two compounds, because they're so high in fructose, probably will engage the same pathways that we see when we give fructose or sugar to animals.

So I would not recommend those as sweeteners to use daily."

Speaking of honey, I am more of a honey fan than agave for the simple reason that the benefits of raw, organic honey have been scientifically established. And the honey I recommend is whole, raw and unprocessed. But I would give you the same caution with honey as with agave syrup -- if you are fructose sensitive, you should be minimizing it or avoiding it altogether since it is also 70 percent fructose.

So, keep your dose below 25 grams of TOTAL fructose from all sources per day, and reduce this amount if you are sensitive to fructose.

How do you know if you are fructose sensitive?

Have your uric acid level checked. Your uric acid level should be about 4.0 mg/dl if you are a man or 3.5 mg/dl if you are a woman. (For more about this, refer to my interview with Dr. Johnson from May 18, 2010.)

Busting Mythbusting Myths

Finally, I must mention a website that was commented on by some of my readers, which contains some misinformation. The site is www.agavemythbuster.com. This is a website done by one of the companies whose product I actually tested and found to contain nearly two thirds fructose.

Unfortunately, myths are being perpetuated -- not busted here such as seeking to confuse people that there is really a clinical difference between fructans and inulin, the form of starch that agave initially stores fructose in. 

Simply speaking inulin is a fructose polymer in which the fructose molecules are interconnected. This is clearly better than free floating fructose that is present in HFCS or many lower quality agaves, but once you swallow the inulin your body will rapidly convert it to fructose, so ultimately, you will still receive a similar amount of fructose. You are not somehow 'magically" protected from the fructose because it is initially complexed as fructose polymer.

They also state that agave nectar does not contribute to liver inflammation, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, or obesity.  Nothing could be further from the truth and I am really shocked that the FTC doesn't come down on them like a ton of bricks for false advertising.

The evidence is BEYOND clear. There are loads of studies establishing that when you consume fructose in the high levels that are typically consumed by most Americans, your risk for all of these diseases dramatically increases.

Let me be clear about high levels. Fructose is ONLY safe when consumed below 25 grams per day. What agave and HFCS manufacturers FAIL to tell you is that the AVERAGE American is consuming 70 grams per day.

While individuals may be able to tolerate larger doses of a complexed fructose polymer like inulin, ultimately it is broken down to fructose and they will need to metabolically address this sugar, which at doses typically consumed is a metabolic poison.

Most agave producers spout nearly identical garbage that the HFCS industry claims, They would have you believe that there really is no difference between glucose and fructose.

They claim that consuming large amounts of glucose or fructose is equally harmful. They simply have chosen to ignore the mountain of scientific evidence that proves fructose has clearly different metabolic pathways than glucose, and is much closer to alcohol with its chronic toxicity profile.

Some Fructose is OK

Remember fructose is not a poison like aluminum or mercury that needs to be avoided at any dose. It is only a poison when you consume it at doses greater than 25 grams per day OR if you have elevated uric acid levels which appear to be a marker for fructose toxicity.

It is possible to safely consume agave or honey but you would have to be very strategic and careful about it.  First you would have to eliminate ALL other sources of fructose in your diet, (fruits, fruit juices, sodas, most processed foods) and then restrict your dose to less than 40 grams of agave per day, which is less than three tablespoons. Anything more than that would put you over the 25 grams-per-day limit, at which fructose toxicity begins.

What the agave and HFCS industry seem to completely ignore is that we have two epidemics in the US that are directly related to fructose consumption: obesity and diabetes. The largest source of calories in the US is from fructose.

For most Americans, fructose can act like a poison. However, if you are healthy, normal weight, do not have diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, then you certainly can enjoy fructose in moderation and it will cause you no harm or damage.

Similar to Tobacco Industry Misinformation

This blatant misrepresentation of scientific truth reminds me of the same nonsense that the tobacco industry spouted. Up until the 90s they were vigorously denying that tobacco was addictive or increased the risk of cancer.

Of course, today nearly everyone realizes that this is utter nonsense.

This is an atrocious misrepresentation and in my opinion, some type of legal action should result.  Hopefully we won't have to follow the tobacco model and wait decades and engage in many class action law suits before we see change.

You can simply vote with your wallet and choose safer sweeteners like stevia or glucose (dextrose).  This will avoid the need of any type of government intervention and will force industry to adjust their practices to meet the educated consumer demand.
