Who would have thought that one liquid
could clean everything from windows to
toilets, sinks to tile. Keep a spray bottle of
half water and half vinegar handy and use it
on mirrors, windows and for brightening water
faucets. It shines metal and removes mildew,
grease and wax build-up. Put vinegar full
strength in the toilet, let it sit for 20
minutes and then scrub as usual. Mix in a
little baking soda and let it foam on tile and
grout. Or put it with a few drops of tea
tree essential oil or eucalyptus
essential oil in a bucket of hot water
and you have a great floor cleaner. For the
oven, mix 4 Tbsp. vinegar, 3 drops of liquid
dish soap and 5 Tbsp. baking soda into a
paste. Apply to spills with a sponge. Let sit
for 45 minutes and scrub clean.
Baking soda. Aside from the
aforementioned concoctions, replace your
kitchen cleanser with this inexpensive cooking
ingredient on tubs and sinks. And it’s for
more than making "volcanoes" with children.
The foaming action created by mixing it with
vinegar can cut through the toughest scum.
Lemons. Don’t pucker up at this one.
Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle coarse salt
over kitchen countertops. Now use the lemon,
cut side down, as a scourer. It will freshen
and clean at the same time. Just wipe with a
clean, wet cloth when done. Then squeeze out
the juice and put in a medium microwave-safe
bowl. Place in the microwave and run on high
for 1 minute. It will rid it of any leftover
odors. Finally, cut the lemon into smaller
chunks and send it down the garbage disposal.
It will freshen and de-grease it in the
process. That’s multi-tasking! Lemon juice can
also be used to cut grease on aluminum and
porcelain. It will whiten in the process, too.
Salt. As already mentioned,
it’s great when used as a scourer, and salt
water has an antibacterial effect. It can also
be used to remove rust strains and soap scum.

Dangerous Errors are
Built into the USDA Food Pyramid
|According to the recommendations,
grains should be the basis of our diet; but many
people do very poorly on grains. Others have a
low tolerance for dairy products. These
intolerances are due to a number of factors,
including ethnic background and genetic
Secondly, the pyramid calls for reduced fats
without addressing the dangers of lowfat diets.
Finally, the new guidelines perpetuate the myth
that fats, carbohydrates and proteins have equal
nutritional properties no matter how much or how
little they are processed. The experts make no
distinction between whole grains and refined,
between foods grown organically and those grown
with pesticides and commercial fertilizers,
between unprocessed dairy products from
pasture-fed cows and pasteurized dairy products
from confined animals raised on processed feed,
between fresh and rancid fats, between
traditional fresh fruits and vegetables and
those that have been irradiated or genetically
altered, between range-fed meats and those from
animals raised in crowded pens; between natural
and battery-produced eggs; in short, between the
traditional foods that nourished our ancestors
and newfangled products now dominating the
|Fats from animal and vegetable
sources provide a concentrated source of energy
in the diet; they also provide the building
blocks for cell membranes and a variety of
hormones and hormone-like substances. Fats as
part of a meal slow down nutrient absorption so
that we can go longer without feeling hungry. In
addition, they act as carriers for important
fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Dietary fats
are needed for the conversion of carotene to
vitamin A, for mineral absorption and for a host
of other processes.
Politically Correct Nutrition is based on the
assumption that we should reduce our intake of
fats, particularly saturated fats from animal
sources. Fats from animal sources also contain
cholesterol, presented as the twin villain of
the civilized diet.
|Mother's milk provides a higher
proportion of cholesterol than almost any other
food. It also contains over 50 percent of its
calories as fat, much of it saturated fat. Both
cholesterol and saturated fat are essential for
growth in babies and children, especially the
development of the brain. Yet, the American
Heart Association is now recommending a
low-cholesterol, lowfat diet for children! Most
commercial formulas are low in saturated fat.
|American Cancer Society, the
National Cancer Institute and the Senate
Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs, claims
that animal fat is linked not only with heart
disease but also with cancers of various types.
Yet when researchers from the University of
Maryland analyzed the data they used to make
such claims, they found that vegetable fat
consumption was correlated with high rates of
cancer and animal fat was not.
|Clearly something is wrong with
the theories we read in the popular press—and
used to bolster sales of lowfat concoctions and
cholesterol free foods. The notion that
saturated fats per se cause heart disease as
well as cancer is not correct and is just plain
wrong. But it is true that some fats are bad for
us. In order to understand which ones, we must
know something about the chemistry of fats.
|Modern diets can contain as much
as 30 percent of calories as polyunsaturated
oils, but scientific research indicates that
this amount is far too high. The best evidence
indicates that our intake of polyunsaturates
should not be much greater than 4 percent of the
caloric total, in approximate proportions of 1.5
percent omega-3 linolenic acid and 2.5 percent
omega-6 linoleic acid. Consumption in this range
is found in native populations in temperate and
tropical regions whose intake of polyunsaturated
fatty acids comes from the small amounts found
in legumes, grains, nuts, green vegetables,
fish, olive oil and animal fats—not from
commercial vegetable oils.
|The demonized saturated
fats—which Americans are trying to avoid—are not
the cause of our modern diseases. In fact, they
play many important roles in the body chemistry:
Saturated fatty acids constitute at least 50
percent of the cell membranes, giving them
necessary stiffness and integrity so they can
They play a vital role in the health of our
bones. For calcium to be effectively
incorporated into the skeletal structure, at

They protect the liver from alcohol and other
toxins, such as Tylenol.
They enhance the immune system.
They are needed for the proper utilization of

acids are better retained in the tissues when
the diet is rich in saturated fats.

And what about cholesterol? Here, too, the
public has been misinformed. Our blood vessels
can become damaged in a number of ways— through
irritations caused by free radicals or viruses,
or because they are structurally weak—and when
this happens, the body's natural healing
substance steps in to repair the damage. That
substance is cholesterol. Cholesterol is a
high-molecular-weight alcohol that is
manufactured in the liver and in most human
cells. Like saturated fats, the cholesterol we
make and consume plays many vital roles:
Along with saturated fats, cholesterol in the
cell membrane gives our cells necessary
stiffness and stability. When the diet contains
an excess of polyunsaturated fatty acids, these

When this happens, cholesterol from the blood is
"driven" into the tissues to give them

cholesterol levels may go down temporarily when
we replace saturated fats with polyunsaturated

Cholesterol acts as a precursor to vital
corticosteroids, hormones that help us deal with
stress and protect the body against heart
disease and cancer; and to the sex hormones like
androgen, testosterone, estrogen and
Cholesterol is a precursor to vitamin D, a vital
fat-soluble vitamin needed for healthy bones and
nervous system, proper growth, mineral
metabolism, muscle tone, insulin production,
reproduction and immune system function. Poor
thyroid function (hypothyroidism) will often
result in high cholesterol levels. When thyroid
function is poor, usually due to a diet high in
sugar and low in usable iodine, fat-soluble
vitamins and other nutrients, the body floods
the blood with cholesterol as an adaptive and
protective mechanism, providing a superabundance
of materials needed to heal tissues and produce
protective steroids. Hypothyroid individuals are
particularly susceptible to infections, heart
disease and cancer.
|Some Side Effects of Uncontrolled
High Blood Pressure:
Stroke, heart attack,
impotence, kidney failure, and eye disease are
all part of the ugly side effect to
uncontrolled high blood pressure. Prevention
is key with hypertension.
High Blood Pressure Looks like in the
High blood pressure - the
force of blood pushing against the walls of your
arteries. High blood pressure
means that your blood is moving through your
arteries with a pressure higher than normal. The
higher the pressure inside your arteries, the
higher your blood pressure numbers may be.
Healthy arteries are flexible, strong and
elastic. Their inner lining is smooth so that
blood flows freely, supplying vital organs and
tissues with adequate nutrients and oxygen. If
you have high blood pressure, the increased
pressure of blood flowing through your arteries
gradually can cause a variety of problems.
High blood pressure can damage the cells of your
arteries' inner lining. It can effect artery
walls, like making them thick and stiff, or
hardening of the arteries. Fats from your diet
enter your bloodstream, pass through the damaged
cells and collect to the sides. These changes
can affect arteries throughout your body,
blocking blood flow to your heart, kidneys,
brain, arms and legs.
Over time, the constant pressure of blood moving
through a weakened artery can cause a section of
its wall to enlarge and form a bulge (aneurysm).
An aneurysm can potentially rupture and cause
life-threatening internal bleeding. Aneurysms
can form in any artery throughout your body, but
they're most common in the aorta, your body's
Just like your heart, your brain depends on a
nourishing blood supply to work properly and
survive. But high blood pressure can cause
|The Real Cause of
|The real cause of
hypertension is chronically elevated insulin
levels, and excessive dietary sugar
(especially fructose) is largely to
blame. High dietary fructose is a
metabolic poison that raises your blood
pressure by raising your uric acid levels,
depleting your magnesium, increasing water
retention, and stressing your liver.

Naturopaths about patients reducing salt and not
