STAYING HEALTHY: THE DANGERS OF EATING OUT

Eating 1Friends eating at a restaurant

Original article published in UNITEDVOICE

If you want to eat better and stay healthy, eat at home. Eating out can eventually take its toll. Here’s how: dinners have no control over many aspects of food they are about to consume. For starters, the menu may not be accurate; for example, the menu may say wild-caught salmon while it was really farm raised salmon where conditions are known to be less than ideal for raising fish. Or, it could be worse… where the salmon is cloned. Costco and many other major retailers has refused to carry cloned salmon.

Poultry and eggs may be from chickens jammed into crowded pen conditions instead of being free range chickens. The chickens may be raised in the US, but shipped to China for processing where the US has little control over sanitary conditions. You wouldn’t think it makes economic sense to ship chicken back and forth across the pacific ocean, but it does.

Beef may be from suppliers outside the US where antibiotics and hormones are routinely used to produce faster growing and and fatter beef.  By the way, the US Congress recently passed a law to allow suppliers to remove the country of origin label (COOL) from beef and pork meats. Also, China plans on producing hundreds of thousands of cloned beef to make up for food shortages. How will American consumers respond if and when presented with cloned beef?

Your Enemy Gets Mad, If He Fails To See You The Way He Wants

Enemy 5

No one gives birth to a child and name him or her ‘Enemy,’ thus; I haven’t met anyone yet called ‘Enemy.’ Yet an enemy exists, the reason the dictionary defines it: As a person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.

What causes enmity between people? I watched a program of a man that hates his neighbour. According to him, his neighbour’s stereo was too noisy and many times when he asks him to reduce the volume he refuses to yield to his demand.

I understand him, especially after the week’s hard work, you wish to have a happy and quiet lovely weekend, reading your favourite books and newspapers, but that neighbour of yours has denied you all those good moments you’re longing for.

At times you might be an enemy or someone might hate you for doing no wrong, just because of your efforts to live a happy life. Do you know that your hard work can sometimes spark jealousy and hatred from an empire of deceitful enemies?

Do you know that even your successful marriage sometimes makes you an enemy, because your neighbour’s marriage is on the rocks? How do you handle such situations when you haven’t done anything wrong but someone madly hates you?

I do hear people often say: The problem was beyond my control, the reason I used food as a means of consolation, became an alcoholic or drug addict. That’s really a big mistake. When you’re experiencing problems, you don’t live on destructive measures to solve your problems, you need to fight those destructive elements.

Years back when I arrived in Europe, among other foreigners, I came to Italy at a time I don’t know anyone. I slept at the Central Train Station in Rome for many days. (I have revisited Rome to see where I slept in the early nineties) I saw that the hard conditions were taking its toll on some of the homeless Africans.

Some became alcoholics, drug addicts, involved in drug trafficking and some decided to go back to Africa. I encouraged them to stay but many of them returned to Africa. Today, I’m no more an illegal immigrant. Above all, I live with my wife and three children in Europe. I wake up every morning at 5 AM and go to work like other workers, enjoying happy union with my family when I’m come at back home.

I know what the enemy wants. I wasn’t ready to be a destitute, alcoholic, drug addict or courier. If I have made it, then you can. Never blame anyone for your failure in life. Don’t let your enemy be happy. Fight those destructive forces to make them mad.

We Know Where We Come From, But Where Do We Go After Death?

Death 2Be happy you’ll die instead of being sad thinking of death.

Death is something many don’t like to talk about, because it’s an enemy that ruins home, takes away our joy and destroys a whole family, yet it’s inevitable. 

Many do ask if we die “where do we go?” It’s hard to give a straight-forward answer. Even though I have cheated death many times in my life, I haven’t experienced it before to know how it is when you’re dead.

I don’t think a dead man has any memory after death to record his experience. According to the Bible: “For the living know that they will die,  but the dead know nothing… their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished” Ecclesiastes 9:5.

Many believe in reincarnation, others don’t, but the Bible promises that there is life after death—and that it lasts forever.

There is something we need to ask: Why many who have died can’t rest peacefully in their graves but often haunt people occupying the houses they were before they died? Does it mean that truly life goes on after death?

There are many verses in the Bible that speak about the resurrection. John 5: 28-29 reads, “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.”

Despite all the Biblical quotations, many may still have different opinions and beliefs about death. Death will always remain a mystery and the greatest fears of life connected to the unknown.

We fear death because we are imperfect or our sinful nature. According to Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord,” yet death is something we should not fear.

Many seem happy when they think of death in their old age. They don’t have anything to worry about because of their good deeds, genuine love and help they offered to people on earth. We can follow them to sow good seeds on earth. That’s where the happiness comes from till death.

Ten Tips To Help Your Child Learn To Love Reading

Article originally posted by Ellen Buikema (Practical strategies for life)

Read 3

  1. Sing, play, and talk with your child. Children love to hear your voice. It doesn’t matter if you sing on or off key. Interaction is what children crave.
  2. Read aloud to your child every day. Reading to your child is the next best thing to a hug. Bring books along to the dentist, doctor, or on other errands where there will be some wait time. Read to children as part of a bedtime ritual. Routines are reassuring.
  3. Have a variety of reading material that is easily available. Place books in baskets in different parts of the home, including in the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and TV areas. This allows children to choose books on their own and makes cleaning up after themselves easy. Consider putting together a backpack prefilled with books to grab and go for short or long distance travel.
  4. Read many types of books. Children love learning about their world, how things work, and all kinds of animals. Reading for information is important for childrens’ future. They love books with rhyme, silly words, and fairy tales. Start bringing your children to the library when they are young, and visit regularly.
  5. Pace the reading. Read with expression! Change the quality and volume of sound while reading to make listening to stories fun. Take your time, don’t rush. Stop now and then during reading time to let your child think about the story. Ask questions to encourage thinking.
  6. Repeat. Children enjoy reading favorite stories over and over again, even after they are able to repeat all the words by heart. Encourage them to read their favorite lines with you. Point to the words as you read them together. Talk about your child’s favorite characters in different contexts, like “What do you think The Cat in the Hat would do if he was in our kitchen right now?”
  7. Find words and letters everywhere. As early as age two, children may identify logos they see often at home and other places they travel. This important milestone is the beginning of the knowledge that print has meaning. Cereal boxes are great to use for finding letters and logos, as are menus, calendars and occupant mail. Take turns finding the same letter with your child. Write to do and grocery lists together. Have him make words with magnetic letters on the refrigerator.
  8. Help your child learn about letter sounds. Show her how to write her name. A child’s name is her first “stamp” on the world. Say the sounds of each letter as you print them. Sing an alphabet song and include the sounds of the letter in the song, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BELlZKpi1Zs . Encourage your child to write but try not to correct him. Beginning writing should be playful.
  9. Limit tube time. Select TV programs with your child in advance. Watch TV and talk about the programs together. Monitor time on other electronic devices. Video games are good fun and many of them are educational, but balance is needed. Too much close work does not give the eyes enough exercise.
  10. Get involved with your child’s school. You are your child’s first and best advocate. Get to know your child’s teacher. Find out how you can support your child in her academic goals. If at all possible, volunteer time in the classroom. Work schedules make this difficult, but advance planning can help make this happen.

    You are your children’s first teacher. Reading to them is a great start in preparation for life in school and beyond.

Why Big Pharma Killed President Dwight Eisenhower

MAN 4

Original article published by: mnwelldir.org

Dear Friend,

On September 24, 1955, President Eisenhower – World War II hero and beloved president – was playing golf at his Denver home, when he suddenly collapsed from what was a rare disease at the time.

He had a heart attack.

Although nobody knew it then… and though you won’t read about it in any history book…

This was a watershed moment that would change the course of modern medicine forever.

One that would make heart disease the #1 killer of Americans – and would establish Big Pharma as America’s #1 most profitable industry.

Hi, my name is Dr. Al Sears.

The story I’m unveiling today has HUGE implications for your personal health, and that of your family.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with heart disease, you need to know the exact details of what took place.

Because this story doesn’t just tell you WHO is responsible…

It tells you WHY.

As in…

  • WHY heart disease rates have soared since 1955 – even as consumption of “heart-healthy” foods and cholesterol-lowering drugs has skyrocketed.
  • WHY you could become victim of this drug-induced tragedy – no matter your cholesterol levels or intake of fat.
  • And 100 billion reasons why Big Pharma will NEVER cure heart disease.

That’s why historian Larry Schweikart calls it “the single most important medical case of the twentieth century.”

Yet the REAL story behind it is virtually unknown.

Within 24 hours of Ike’s heart attack, special interests seized the opportunity.

They manufactured a crisis, a founding myth, and a “solution.”

They shoved this propaganda down the American public’s throat.

And in doing so, they singlehandedly sent America’s health spiraling downhill for the next six decades.

Over the next few minutes, I’ll expose this near-60-year-old Big Pharma conspiracy. I’ll name the names. I’ll track the money. And at each stage, I’ll answer the BIG question: “Who benefits?”

What’s more, I’ll reveal how you can safeguard yourself from heart disease forever with solutions that are 100 percent natural, affordable, effective, and safe.

Dwight D. Eisenhower: The War Hero Who Led the Allies to Victory on D-Day and Ultimately Won World War II

MAN 5

General Eisenhower gives his famous “full victory, nothing less” speech to the U.S. Company E, 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment (Strike) of the 101st Airborne Division the night before the D-Day invasion of France.

On June 6, 1944 – now known as D-Day – future President Dwight David Eisenhower, then supreme commander of Allied Expeditionary Forces in World War, II gave the go-ahead for a massive invasion of Europe called Operation Overlord.

He told the troops the “eyes of the world are upon you,” and called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.”

Following the successful Normandy Invasion, Allied forces under Eisenhower broke the beachhead and began driving across France. In early 1945, the Allies pushed the Nazis out of France. By May 7, 1945, the Nazis formally surrendered, ending the war in Europe.

Eisenhower’s leadership and fame would win him the presidency seven years later. Many fondly remember him as “one of the last great presidents.”

But before I go into the details of this story any further—how it spun off the #1 heart disease lie, ultimately claiming Eisenhower as its first victim—please allow me to fully introduce myself.

You see, I’ve spent the last…

30 Years Fighting Big Pharma
on Behalf of My Patients

Since graduating from medical school three decades ago, I’ve worked hard to develop a different kind of practice.

One that makes the health of my patients my highest priority. Even if that means bucking the “respectable” health establishment.

The truth is, conventional medicine, for all of its genius and innovations, has failed the everyday American.

It has enriched a few corrupt government bureaucrats and their crony CEOs at the expense of your health.

And it’s done so under the cover of clever marketing disguised as “scientific research.”

That’s why I help my patients read between the lines and open the curtains on Big Pharma’s façade.

And there’s NO bigger lie than the heart disease myth I’m debunking today.

Dr. George Mann, a lead researcher in the legendary Framingham Heart Study, called it, “the greatest scam in the history of medicine.”

It’s a lie developed by junk science, advertised by corporate interests, and rubber stamped by bought-off politicians.

And it only remains a “fact” because it supports Big Pharma’s $100 billion a year cholesterol-lowering drug industry.

President Eisenhower was the first victim of this grand conspiracy.

And it didn’t stop there.

Since then, it’s claimed the lives of 950,000 Americans every year – adding up to millions over the last few decades.

Odds are, you or somebody you know or love is a victim of it too.

But the good news is, it does NOT have to be that way.

Dr. Al Sears, M.D.
Uniquely Qualified to Keep You
Healthier For Life

Doc 2

Dr. Al Sears, M.D. currently owns and operates a successful integrative medicine and anti-aging clinic in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, with over 25,000 patients. His cutting-edge therapies and reputation for solving some of the most difficult-to-diagnose cases attract patients from around the world.

As a graduate of the University of South Florida College of Medicine, Dr. Sears scored in the 99th percentile on his MCAT and graduated with honors in Internal Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Physical Medicine.

After entering private practice, Dr. Sears was one of the first to be board-certified in anti-aging medicine. As a pioneer in this new field of medicine, he is an avid researcher, published author, and enthusiastic lecturer. He is the first doctor licensed in the U.S. to administer TA-65, the most important breakthrough in anti-aging medicine today.

There are alternative therapies you can use to prevent and EVEN reverse heart disease – without expensive drugs, procedures, or even doctor visits.

There are safe treatments that could forever rid your body of heart disease. Treatments you can apply from home, for pennies on the dollar.

But they’re natural, so Big Pharma can’t patent them.

That’s why they do NOT want you to hear about them.

In just a moment, I’ll share with you the shocking details of nine censored heart solutions … where you can find them at your local grocery, health food store, or pharmacy… and how you can begin using them TODAY.

If you’re one of 70 percent of Americans suffering with some form of heart disease, I urge you to read on for the details.

What you’re about to see could save you a fortune on insanely expensive heart procedures.

Conventional therapies like…

  • A $1,500-a-pop statin (cholesterol-lowering) drug prescription…
  • A $40,000 coronary stent…
  • A $200,000 (or more) coronary bypass surgery…

These so-called “therapies” not only put your life at risk…

They could also deplete or even wipe out your retirement savings – even if you have health insurance or Medicare. (According to CNBC, medical bills are America’s #1 cause of bankruptcy, with 1.7 million Americans going bankrupt every year. And procedures like open heart surgery are some of the most expensive out there.)

And the worst part is, it’s all for nothing.

Did you know, for instance, that 85 percent of heart bypass surgeries are unnecessary?

Yet specialists love them because they can cost $200,000 (or more). Not a bad payday.

And the statin drug guidelines are so broad, almost 95 percent of new users are being prescribed drugs they don’t need.

 

President Eisenhower’s Farewell Address

Pres 1

President Dwight D. Eisenhower

President Eisenhower warns the American public as he leaves office on January 17, 1961

You’ve likely heard about Eisenhower’s famous farewell address, and his warning of the “undue influence warranted by the military-industrial complex.”

Eisenhower was no stranger to the dangers of monopoly corporations pulling the strings of government to increase their power and influence.

What made the military-industrial complex all the more dangerous was its ability to manufacture enemies and crises – which then stirs the American public into a war frenzy, leading to greater war spending and profits.

Big Pharma – the “medical industrial complex” – is no different. They can as easily manufacture health crises – “epidemics” that call for new drugs and therapies, which the unelected FDA then rubber-stamps.

The Controversy Surrounding Child Adoption By Homosexuals

Two men can't make a baby so they don't need a child

Gay Child adoption must be considered as a crime because innocent children get lost in the wilderness through ‘Gay-Child’ adoption.

Two men adopted a child. At home, they introduced themselves to the innocent child as their new parents. “Every child has a father and mother, where is my mother if you are my new parents?” The child asked. The homosexuals looked at each other’s face and scratched their heads and said to the small child, “We are just two men to take care of you.” That’s where the psychological turmoil of a child begins.

He has immediately realized that he has nothing called happiness in his world. Firstly, he has lost his real parents because of drug and alcohol issues, now he under the care of two fearful men, telling him we are your new parents. As young as he is the child realizes his future is bleak and uncertain. The men gave him assurance that he is going to be a happy child.

No matter how two men take care of a child, it will never be the same like a child growing with a man and woman. Some people are selfish, greedy, wicked and unfaithful. Sins of the flesh, uncontrollable evil desires, and bad habits prevent people to do the right thing even though they know perfectly well that what they are doing is wrong.

You choose to be gay because you are not interested in a woman, why then interested in a child, when two men can’t make a baby? Society is in decay, facing the threat of collapse, yet if one speaks about it, including homosexuality, he immediately becomes an enemy. Black people have endured and continue to endure the effects of slavery, racism, discrimination and medical crimes.

The world witnessed the killing of over 10 million Africans, including children, by a crazy Belgian king, called Leopold II, in Congo, yet Belgium built statues  and named streets after him. No one criticized Belgium for doing that. But Europe and America are against Africa, for saying “No We Don’t Want Homosexuality.” Stinking hypocrites. Do people think Africans are stupid? Not at all, Africans don’t feel stupid.

No African leader tells European and American leaders what to do, so America and Europe shouldn’t force Africa to accept homosexuality.  We simply don’t want it, but I’m strongly against the way some of the leaders are dealing with homosexual issues in Africa. Many Africans have suffered persecution and killings for just being gay. That’s inhuman.

Even though there are thousands of orphans and children from drug abused homes, governments shouldn’t decide that the only way to help these children is to allow homosexuals to adopt them. It’s a wrong decision. A real happy child runs to the bedroom of his mother and father every morning, not the bedroom of two mustaches.

I don’t hate homosexuals, but I don’t agree with them when it comes to child adoption. They force a child to smile and think the child is happy. We need to create a better world for the benefit of the future generation including children. Every intelligent person that cares about the future should rise on his feet, to tell the world “Homosexuals must stop adopting children.”

Babies: Those Who Want Can’t Get And Those Who Get Don’t Want

Unwanted

Unwanted baby deposited in a baby box.

Once I visited a Belgian couple in the neighborhood of Antwerp. They are married for many years and both are in their forties. They dearly love each other and many times, I study the way Peter treats his wife, kindly, gently and respectfully. “Joel, hold a woman like an egg, because when it breaks, you can’t pick it up, you will only miss your water when your well runs dry,” Peter once told me.

I do ask questions, especially when very close to someone. “Peter, you don’t like children,” I said. “I married to have children, but we never had one. I’ve tried everything without success, “said Peter. “After everything failed, did you ask from God,” I asked. “If there is God, then he might be a very wicked God,” said Peter.

I realized the pain and heartache of Peter. His comments are enough to know how dear baby means to him, but frankly speaking, when one seeks God, God will also seek you. His wife couldn’t bring forth a baby and now he hates God for that. It’s not only Peter and his wife facing this bitter experience. Worldwide, there are thousands of women looking for children without success.

Some have spent thousands of dollars just to be pregnant all to no avail. Many are sad in their matrimonial homes, because the child they are longing for never comes. Thousands of women are desperate looking for babies. Without any hope of having own their babies, some adopt children, yet thousands of babies are killed daily through abortion, strangulation and abandonment.

Some mothers are so cruel that one finds it difficult to believe what they did to their own babies, The question is, why babies often end up in the hands of women who don’t want them, when someone else is looking for one without success? Couple of months ago, a woman from New Jersey was arrested and charged with murder for allegedly putting her newborn baby in the middle of the road and setting the infant on fire.

Innocent babies are being dumped in toilets, bushes, roadsides, gutters etc, without any pity or remorse. The need to do more to help mothers with unwanted babies is necessary. Governments worldwide should also find a solution to avoid abandoned babies, because society wouldn’t accept this kind of cruelty. Germany has already found a solution to discourage abandoning of babies, by providing baby bank.

Lee Jong-rak , a pastor in South Korea, saw a devastating problem in the amount of abandoned babies left to die on the streets. He organized a “Baby Drop Box” where unwanted babies are deposited in a box, saving thousands of babies who would have been left on the streets or abandoned to die. Life is precious, people should stop killing babies.
