Why You Should Soak Nuts Before Eating Them?

by Dr Janardhana Hebbar

Soaking helps to get rid of phytic acid and neutralizing enzyme inhibitors enabling easy digestion and elevating absorption of vitamins and other nutrients in the nuts. The peels are more easily removable, once you soak nuts in hot water. Adding a little salt while soaking will help neutralize the enzymes. It also helps remove dust residue and tannins. The water residue from the soaked nuts must not be re-used for cooking as they might contain harmful substances.

Just like grains, nuts contain phytic acid which is part of their defense mechanism to avoid predators so that they can grow to their full maturity. Often, you may find some bits of nuts in your stools because phytic acid works against easy digestion of the nuts. Soaking helps to get rid of phytic acid and neutralizing enzyme inhibitors enabling easy digestion and elevating absorption of vitamins and other nutrients in the nuts. Continue reading

The Hidden Weed Killer (Glyphosate) in Your BREAD (and Other Wheat Products)

Commercial wheat doused with cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide right before harvest… and you’re eating it!

Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/050583_glyphosate_wheat_bread_crop_contamination.html#ixzz3hPz6ua00Now that the World Health Organization has publicly condemned glyphosate herbicide as “probably carcinogenic to humans,” awareness of this insidious chemical’s contamination of the human food supply is suddenly exploding among health-conscious consumers.

Most people, however, have no awareness at all that commercial wheat products are saturated with glyphosate before harvest. They think glyphosate is only used on genetically modified crops like corn and soybeans. But it turns out that glyphosate is routinely used as a wheat crop drying chemical to speed up harvesting. (Monitor breaking news headlines on glyphosate in real time at Glyphosate.news, part of the new FETCH.news network.) Continue reading

Food Collapse Unfolding in Greece

Friday, July 03, 2015
by Mike Adams

Grocery store shelves to be stripped bare… supermarkets raided… home gardens now the new ‘secret weapon’ against starvation.

(NaturalNews) Over the years, I’ve consistently and repeatedly urged people to grow their own food, and I’ve explained over and over again why you need a home-grown self-reliant food supply when the food collapse arrives.

That moment has now arrived for the citizens of Greece. With cash disappearing, grocery store shelves are on the verge of being stripped bare across the country, and some citizens are beginning to raid grocery stores in desperately thefts to acquire enough food to prevent their own starvation.

Tired of being called a nut job by the mainstream media?

NaturalNews) The mainstream media can’t figure out why it keeps losing readers and viewers. Maybe it’s because they keep calling health-conscious consumers “whackos” and “kooks.” In their latest example of alienating readers, mainstream media outlets like USA Today, Washington Post, Forbes.com and the New York Times have resorted to condemning all health-conscious consumers as nut jobs and kooks and conspiracy theorists… all because they want to avoid fluoride, pesticides, toxic heavy metals or GMOs.

Antibiotic Resistance Will Kill 300 Million People by 2050

By Dr. Mercola

Three problems with the US food supply that is making food a source of disease rather than optimal health include: the way our food is raised; the way it’s processed; and the routine use of hazardous drugs and chemicals.

The United States is one of the few countries in the world that produces and processes food in a way that defies both science and common sense.

As noted in the featured TED lecture, 86 percent of every dollar you spend at the grocery store goes toward paying for processing and marketing of the food. A mere 14 percent goes to the farmer that actually grows the food ingredients in question.

This alone should tell you that that inexpensive processed food item you buy is hardly a bargain. Not only are you getting very little real food, as there are so many fillers and additives tossed in, you’re also getting very little in terms of healthy nutrition.

This is important, as your body is not designed to process and thrive on a base of disease causing ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated vegetable oil.

The Biggest Lies Told by the Food Industries

September 16, 2014                                      by: S. D. Wells

There’s no wasting time here. People must know. You may be aware of some of the following tricks, lies, schemes and plots to keep people malnourished and in need of constant medical attention, but then again, you may not. The biggest lies in this world are the ones more likely to be believed, and “Big Food” has that kind of money to spend on YOU, so here we go:

For added freshness” and “as a preservative” — These preservatives kill fungus and mutate human cells into cancer, yet these slogans are seen on bread all over the world and on jar labels for just about everything.

As a preservative…” Continue reading

Toxic Herbicides Now Common in Pregnant Women’s Breast Milk, Placentas, and Umbilical Cords

Story at-a-glance

  • A recent study showed the toxic herbicide glyphosate (Roundup) in the breast milk of a significant percentage of American women, even those actively trying to avoid chemical contaminants
  • Glyphosate was also found in urine and drinking water samples at levels 10 times higher than those in the EU when tested in 2013
  • A Canadian study found Bt toxin in the umbilical cords and circulating blood of 93 percent of pregnant women tested
  • US corn and soy fields are creating an ecologic crisis, turning grasslands into lifeless, barren expanses, ruining topsoil, and decimating already endangered wildlife
  • Kansas Representative Mike Pompeo has introduced the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act, and your help is needed to prevent its passage

Health Basics – The Top 10 Causes of Breast Cancer (and Other Cancers)

Monday, October 14, 2013 by: S. D. Wells

(NaturalNews) Since chemotherapy was invented by Nazi scientists 70 years ago, and mammograms expose patients to radiation which causes cancer itself, let us forget everything we know for a few minutes about cancer prevention and cancer treatment, and take a common sense approach to this monster that’s killing over 750,000 people a year in the United States alone.
 
Western politics of toxic food and worthless medicine have besieged a 75-year-old scam on U.S. citizens, and the candle is burning at both ends. There IS A MIRACLE CURE for cancer, but it doesn’t involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, pharmaceuticals, or any advice you would get from mainstream medicine doctors. Continue reading
