Grain Brain: How to Prevent Alzheimer's Disease


Interview of Dr. David Perlmutter By Dr. Mercola

“I have a very strong background in traditional neurology,” Dr. Perlmutter says. “As a neurologist for many years, I became more and more frustrated with our lack of ability to actually treat diseases. We were really only treating symptoms.

When I finally began to understand what the proximate cause of the various illnesses we were dealing with was, I realized that mainstream neurology, though I don’t want to sound too critical, really pays no attention to the causation part of the story.”

There are many discoveries for diseases

Here is a real interesting one told by G. Edward Griffin. He talks about who the real quacks are, throughout history.


Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Natural selection in action.

Let them eat cake. I'll stick with meat, eggs, low carb nuts, cheese, low carb vegetables, real salt and a host of vitamin and mineral supplements.

Here are more Dr. Mercola interview of scientists who have found that a Ketogenic diet (one devoid of carbs, very low in protein, and high in fat is effective in starving cancer cells which need sugar to survive. Depriving our bodies of carbs and providing only a very low level of protein keeps our blood sugar very, very low. Our ketones increase from the fat we eat and the body fat we draw down, and these ketones feed our cells as effectively, if not better than glucose.

This is probably part of the reason a restricted calorie diet and the two day a week fast program are effective in regenerating our bodies.

Which is why sufficient dietary iodine may be an important

inhibitor in developing cancer. Cancer cells have a malfunction in the mitochondria. The metabolic rate is controlled by the mitochondria and that is where iodine receptor sites reside. The metabolic rate of cells has a lot to do with apoptosis, programmed cell death, and lack of sufficient iodine inhibits apoptosis. At one level, it may be as simple as good health being our cells vibrating at a favorable rate and bad health being the incorrect frequency, sort of like the unsettling feeling of a scrape across a slate blackboard.

This iodine connection is supported by the lower incidence of cancer in populations that have a high intake of dietary iodine (30 mg per day compared to the .150 mg per day recommended in the US).

Just my own thoughts taking a little information from here and a little from there.

I love

how people on dailypaul care about a healthy lifestyle. wondering if it's the same on other polical forums or websites.

Okay - what do vegetarian zombies want?

A great Jonathan Coulton tune. As one of the comments expressed it, this version I think of as the "official" music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOlznuyPOeM

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

How does your steak get fattened



People don't realize that most of the grass-fed beef they buy has been finished on corn. This means the desirable fatty acid profile that they are after is erased in the last couple of weeks of the cow's life. What you should really look for is grass-finished beef. And good luck finding that.

It used to be grass

These days it is mostly corn.

But I'd say just eat what the cow eats, and skip the cow.

Eat grass, man. (Wheatgrass)

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Corn is a grass

Technically speaking. Corn gets a bad rap. If it weren't for Narragansett Indian flint corn, the pilgrims would have died out. Now you can't even find good flint corn. It's all hybrid, GMO, tasteless dent corn now, bred to feed livestock and to grow in densely planted monocultures with huge amounts of chemical fertilizers. This is what is ground up and sold as cornmeal. Yuck! We need to reclaim our corn heritage.

Well, I have this to say:
Grow food in dirt? Save time, eat dirt.

There are a few edible grasses though.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Oh sorry

canadian steak gets fat on grain.

Not to mention the fact now that....

....the zombie gene virus is being programmed into those very grains.




I try to avoid grains as much

I try to avoid grains as much as possible. I feel best when I adhere to the paleo/primal type diet, though I admit it is difficult to be 100% all the time.

I'm reading this now. It is

I'm reading this now. It is eye opening. All us tinfoil hatters thought they were dumbing us down with fluoride, turns out it's the "amber waves of grain"!
