True Confessions from a Radiation Therapist
Carnivora® is the 100% pure extract from the Venus Flytrap plant and was developed by Dr. Helmut G. Keller in the late 1970’s in Europe. As a young doctor, Keller was disenchanted with the dismal success of the “Big 3” treatments and considered dropping out of oncology. By a strange twist of fate, he discovered the Venus Flytrap as he was purchasing a bouquet of flowers for his wife. As Keller observed the Flytrap (a carnivorous plant), he deduced that it must possess an advanced immune system able to distinguish between harmful intruders and its own cells and was intrigued at its ability to recognize and digest animal protein from insects. Dr. Keller had a hunch that this insect-eating plant could become a medical breakthrough. Turns out he was correct! In 1988, the active component of Carnivora®, “plumbagin,” was isolated. It has proven itself to be, in vivo and in vitro (in live subjects and in the laboratory), a powerful immuno-stimulant, stimulating cytokines and also inhibiting protein kinases, thus stopping abnormal cell growth (that doesn’t belong in the human body). Several celebrities have used Carnivora® including former president Ronald Reagan, who requested that Carnivora® be sent to the White House in 1985. Carnivora® is now sold around the world. This plant is packed with 17 naturally occurring compounds with far reaching implications that are 100% compatible with the human body. Additionally Carnivora® has a very potent effect an an “immuno-modulating” compound. (Molecular Recognition, European Symposium, 1988 et. al., B.Kreher, A. Neszmelyi, K. Polos, H. Wagner) Immune monitoring studies conducted by ZYTOGNOST GmbH in Munich, Germany reported that “the effect of Carnivora® could be characterized as immuno-modulatory.” This means that a homeostasis (balanced harmony) occurs between the “helper and suppressor” cells of the immune system. The ratio between the “helper” and “suppressor” cells of the immune system will mean the difference between staying healthy or allowing abnormal cellular growth from the creation of “powerful immune defense.” Carnivora® is a known antiviral, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. My entire family (including my kiddos) takes Carnivora® every day as part of our healthy lifestyle. As a matter of fact, when I yell “Carnivora time Carnivora time,” all 4 of my children will come running up to me with their mouths open, ready for me to give them their Carnivora®. Even Charity, our 2 year old, loves taking Carnivora®. Warning: Do not take Carnivora® pure liquid extract in high doses if you are pregnant.
Vaccine “Junk Science”
In his novel 1984, George Orwell explained “double speak” as expressing contradictory comments in one statement. Later the notion of “double think” arose to describe the ability to hold contradicting views simultaneously. An example of contradicting views held at the same time:
- “Newborns are required to receive hepatitis B vaccinations”
- “Hepatitis B is transmitted sexually or by sharing needles.”
Obviously newborns are not having sex and sharing needles. But this is the kind of “double think” that is commonplace amongst the “vaccine pushers” today. Since the entire vaccine program is based on massive fraud, the “pushers” often resort to an interesting “fear tactic” to try to mandate vaccine obedience among the masses. And they follow the Orwellian protocol of “double think.” How many times have you heard the vaccine quacks insist that those who are unvaccinated are a “health risk” to the rest of the vaccinated population? HUH? What kind of nonsense is that? If vaccines TRULY protected people from infectious disease, then there would be no reason for the vaccinated population to be concerned about being around those “dangerous” unvaccinated people. After all, the vaccine made them all “immune,” right? Of course, that’s just more “vaccine propaganda.” In the words of Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, “Vaccines don’t really work at all. They are marketed under a blanket of disease hysteria and pimped by a cult following of medicalized quacks and needle junkies who abandoned real science long ago. After all, who needs real science when you’ve got the CDC marketing all the fear for you? The CDC is to medicine what George Bush was to the war industry — spread a little fear and the profits roll in.” No vaccines have EVER had double-blind placebo controlled trials. EVER. And all the junk science trails are performed by the vaccine manufacturers. Did you know that over 50% of FDA and CDC advisory panels are from vaccine manufacturers? These criminal cockroaches were willing to sacrifice the health of millions of children just to fill their pockets with cash. They should be looking through bars, not serving on boards. Truth be told, the entire vaccination industry is built on nothing more than “JUNK SCIENCE.” According to Ethan A. Huff, writer for NaturalNews, “While the medical, pharmaceutical, and vaccine industries are busy pushing new vaccines for practically every condition under the sun, a new study published in the journal Immunity completely deconstructs the entire vaccination theory. It turns out that the body’s natural immune systems, comprised of both innate and adaptive components, work together to ward off disease without the need for antibody-producing vaccines. ” Watch this video with Jenny McCarthy and “The Doctors” and learn how brainwashed most doctors are regarding vaccines and autism. The young doctor in blue scrubs gets so mad he almost cannot talk, his head looks like it might explode, and the veins in his neck look like garden hoses! (Maybe he needs to visit one of his colleagues to prescribe some valium or Xanax). As some of you may know, April is “Autism Awareness Month.” Autism is a neurological condition that has exponentially exploded in the last 20 years. Prior to 1990, only one child in 2500 was autistic. According to a recent U.S. News & World Report, “a government study from October 2009 estimates that the prevalence (of autism) is … about 1 in every 91 children.” Wow … autism has increased from 1 child in 2500 to 1 child in 91. Let’s do the math. Since around 1990, autism in the USA has increased by over 2700%. This increase in reported autism cases eerily parallels the increase in the number and frequency of vaccines given to infants. Up until around 1989, preschool children received only 3 vaccines (polio, DPT, MMR). But during George Bush Senior’s presidency, the number of immunizations given to young children skyrocketed. We now know that this was fueled by the federal vaccine advisory board which was populated primarily by lobbyists for the vaccine manufacturers. Surprised? I’m not… Today, the CDC recommends over 35 vaccines to be given before children reach the 1st grade! Even though vaccine manufacturers were supposed to remove the mercury, many of these vaccines still contain mercury. Over the past 20 years, approximately 80 million children have been injected with mercury-containing vaccines. And what happens if you don’t want to inject your newborn baby with poisonous vaccines? The hospital workers will call the police, “seize” (kidnap) your newborn baby, throw the mother out of the building, and then FORCIBLY assault the baby with dangerous vaccines! You think I’m kidding? I’m dead serious! In another shocking case of medical tyranny, a Pennsylvania mother who gave birth to a healthy baby girl in an ambulance was threatened by a government thug (I mean “social worker”) named Angelica Lopez-Heagy and accused of not allowing her child to receive the proper “medical treatment.” What was the mother’s crime? She had the audacity to ask questions about the medical “safety plan” recommended by the hospital. (This is yet another instance of “double think” since the “safety plan” actually is a long list of toxic vaccines which will insure that the baby will become a “repeat customer” of the medical mafia.) When the mom said she wanted her attorney to look over the document before she signed it, the social worker called the police, who then kidnapped the baby, and they forcibly vaccinated the baby, WITHOUT THE MOTHER’S CONSENT!! Which vaccine was the baby poisoned with? HEPATITIS B … you know, the disease “transmitted sexually or by sharing needles.” This is how parents are treated in America today: Like criminals whose sole purpose is to provide the state with a new “litter” of victims.

Medical Terrorism in Michigan
by Mike Adams, the “Health Ranger” Natural News
Government is not merely denying parents and families the right to consume healthful whole foods such as raw milk; now rule-by-force government authorities are threatening a Michigan family with criminal prosecution if they do not poison their child with chemotherapy chemicals”“ even though their child shows no signs of cancer! This latest gross violation of medical freedom by government goons has been reported by World Net Daily in a story by Bob Unruh. Other facts revealed in the story include: • The case is being fought on behalf of Ken and Erin Stieler and their son Jacob by attorneys with the Home School Legal Defense Association (http://www.hslda.org). • The Michigan Department of Human Services has filed suit to force the parents to administer the chemicals to their son even though medical scans reveal him to be completely clear of cancer. • The chemotherapy chemicals being mandated by the state include ifosfamide, etoposide and doxorubicin. All of these chemicals are carcinogens, meaning they cause cancer. The FDA openly admits that these drugs have never been proven safe in children, stating, “safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established.” • Lower courts in Michigan have twice ruled against state officials and sided with the family to avoid their son being poisoned with chemotherapy. • The Michigan Department of Human Services insists that state criminal prosecutors charge the parents with medical negligence. Statement from the HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) From: http://www.hslda.org/hs/state/mi/201203130.asp the Michigan Department of Human Services continues to attempt to prosecute this family for medical neglect. If they succeed they will force Jacob to resume chemotherapy despite the fact that the drugs in question are not FDA approved (either for children in general or for this particular cancer). Moreover, these drugs do not promise anything close to a guaranteed cure. And, the FDA requires the drug manufacturers to disclose that these drugs cause new cancers to form, heart disease in children, failure to sexually mature, and many other serious side effects in some cases. The Marquette County Probate Court has twice ruled against the Department. Yet, the department keeps on fighting against these parents. Big Brother medical insanity: Poison your child or go to jail! For several years, I’ve warned NaturalNews readers about the rise of what I coined “Gunpoint Medicine.” See other examples of gunpoint medicine at: http://www.naturalnews.com/gunpoint_medicine.html The term “gunpoint medicine” means medicine administered at gunpoint by the government, and it’s exactly what Ken and Erin Stieler are facing right now. The origins of this bizarre use of government force against families stems from the twisted belief of government worshippers and power-tripping “authorities” that the government owns your children, not you (the parents). You see this reflected in school lunch programs as well, where parents who pack brown bag lunches for their children are horrified to learn that their children are forced to ditch their home-made lunches and eat processed “pink slime” chicken nuggets at school. (http://www.naturalnews.com/034979_food_police_sack_lunches_schoolchil) Due to this overreaching form of government-sponsored medical terrorism, parents who do not agree to poison their children with cancer-causing chemicals may be criminally prosecuted, thrown in jail and have their child taken away from them. If you think about it, this is a fundamental human rights issue. Don’t parents have the basic right to say “No” to a medical treatment that is openly admitted to cause cancer, brain damage and kidney damage? Isn’t this a rational decision made by parents who wish to protect the health of their child?
Thanks to Mike Adams and NaturalNews.com for the cartoon above.
But NO; in today’s profit-driven medical system, profits are far more important than human rights. That’s why children are routinely used as human guinea pigs by drug companies who murder those children during their vaccine experiments and drug trials (http://www.naturalnews.com/023654.html). It’s also why chemotherapy, vaccines and other potentially deadly medical “treatments” are being forced onto children all across America. Remember when Texas Governor Rick Perry announced that parents had to inject their teens with HPV vaccines? (http://www.naturalnews.com/033571_Rick_Perry_HPV_vaccines.html) Only western medicine must be administered at gunpoint Of all the systems of medicine that exist around the world (Ayurvedic medicine, Amazon rainforest medicine, Aboriginal medicine, Tibetan medicine, Chinese medicine, etc.), conventional western medicine is the ONLY system so dangerous, deadly and unwelcomed that it must be administered under the threat of imprisonment. Pause to think about that for a moment: Every other system of medicine in the world is voluntary. But not western (pharmaceutical) medicine. It is a system of medicine found to be so offensive by rational people that the state itself must resort to using the threat of arrest at gunpoint in order to coerce parents into reluctantly agreeing to the toxic treatments. That’s why I say: “A system of medicine that requires enforcement at gunpoint is not medicine at all. It is coercion and torture.” It’s also a crime against humanity. Chemotherapy drugs cause kidney damage, liver damage and brain damage Even when chemotherapy drugs supposedly “work” to shrink a tumor (which, by itself, is no real measure of a cancer cure), they do so at a terrible price: The permanent damaging of kidneys, liver and brain. Chemotherapy causes so much kidney failure that kidney dialysis is one of the most common procedures following chemotherapy patients. Those patients also suffer from so-called “chemo brain” ”” a permanent damaging of the brain that mimics dementia or Alzheimer’s. Liver function is also severely harmed by chemotherapy agents, sharply reducing the patient’s ability to detoxify their body from future chemical assaults, thereby making them more susceptible to recurring cancer in the future. That’s why cancer almost always comes back a year or two after chemotherapy. Even worse than all this, the No. 1 side effect of chemotherapy is cancer! Yep, this is a treatment that admittedly causes the very condition it claims to treat. How’s that for total medical quackery? Take action: Protest this medical insanity being pushed by the Michigan Department of (In)Human Services Protest this medical insanity! Here’s some contact information for the director of the Michigan Department of Human Services: http://www.mi.gov/dhs/0,4562,7-124-5459_7097””,00.html Director Maura D. Corrigan P.O. Box 30037 Lansing, Michigan 48909 Telephone: (517) 373-2035 Fax: (517) 335-6101 Email:firstname.lastname@example.org Warning to parents: STOP taking your children to drug-pushing pediatricians! The lesson in this case of medical coercion is to AVOID taking your children to conventional pediatricians! Parents: You may not realize this, but a pediatrician has the power to throw you in prison for dismissing their medical demands! If that pediatrician says “Your child needs chemotherapy” and you say, “I prefer not to poison my child with cancer-causing chemicals,” that pediatrician simply picks up the phone, calls state authorities and has you arrested. In other cases reported by NaturalNews, we’ve even seen pediatricians call state troopers and SWAT teams on parents who refused to comply with their demands. (http://www.naturalnews.com/gunpoint_medicine.html) Pediatricians are the new medical terrorists in America, you see. And if you do not follow their demands, they have the power to have your children taken away from you while you are arrested and prosecuted for criminal “medical negligence.” I’m not making this up. Such is the dangerous power of police state medicine in America today. The solution to all this is obvious, and I’ll say it again: Do NOT take your children to conventional pediatricians! If you don’t take your child to see a pediatrician, you deny them the opportunity to diagnose your child with something and then demand your compliance with their high-profit treatments. You refuse to submit to their false authority. Instead, take your children to naturopaths or other practitioners who are not ego-tripping medical maniacs who get off on punishing parents for refusing their medical services. Buy our chemicals or go to jail There’s another angle in all this, too: Many of these pediatricians are pediatric oncologists, meaning they specialize in cancer treatments for children. The dirty little secret of the cancer industry is that oncologists earn most of their profits from selling chemotherapy drugs to patients. So at the same time they are “diagnosing” you with cancer, they’re also selling you a load of (chemical) bunk and hoping you’re stupid enough to buy into it. Once you sign the “treatment” line, your insurance company pays them big bucks. Huge profits margins are generated from chemotherapy drugs. If you say “no” to an oncologist ”” who is very much like a car salesman in the sense that he has a financial stake in your decision ”” you are costing him a loss in profits. He doesn’t like that. His BMW needs an upgrade, you see, and he’s hoping to fly to Hawaii to catch another golf game next week, and to do that, he needs another $20,000 in health insurance reimbursements from your policy. So if you say no, he might just be so angry that he calls the police on you. “You dare to say NO to ME? You’ll see who has the power NOW!” You can almost hear the “Muah ha ha ha!” following the whole scene. Yes, these pediatric oncologists are some of the most evil, unethical, and downright criminal minds you will find in the medical system today. Far from helping children, they are engaged in mass poisoning crimes that rival the gassing of Jews in Nazi Germany. In fact, some of the chemicals come from the very same sources ”” drug companies that were once part of IG Farben, the Nazi war crimes chemical conglomerate that was found guilty of crimes against humanity. Today’s Bayer company is an offshoot of IG Farben, in fact, and the former chairperson of Bayer, Fritz ter Meer, was found guilty of war crimes in the Nuremberg trials. As NaturalNews reported in 2008: (http://www.naturalnews.com/024534_Europe_health_WHO.html) “At the Nuremberg Trials, 24 of the IG Farben directors and other industrialists were charged with genocide, slavery, and other crimes against humanity. Many of these unscrupulous villains would later play a key role in reinstating several IG Farben companies as huge players in the pharmaceutical/chemical industry not only in Germany but also throughout Europe and the United States. And several of these former Nazis would be pivotal in devising a pan-European trade association which has now evolved into the European Union. Dr. Fritz ter Meer, a director of IG Farben who was directly involved in developing the nerve gas, Zyklon-B, which killed millions of Jews, was sentenced to seven years in prison but was released after four years through the intervention of Rockefeller and J.J. McCloy, then U.S. High Commissioner for Germany. An unrepentant Fritz ter Meer, guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity, returned to work in Bayer where he served as Chairman for more than 10 years, until 1961. This same ter Meer, a convicted Nazi war criminal, went on to become one of the initiators of the Codex Alimentarius Commission in 1962, an organization that was nurtured by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and latterly the World Trade Organization (WTO).” Protect your children from poison-pushing pediatricians So the next time you see a pediatrician pushing chemotherapy, just think to yourself, “Nazi war criminal!” Just because they have a medical license doesn’t mean they aren’t committing crimes against children. Hitler made it the law that Jews should be exterminated, but just because something is the law doesn’t make it right, obviously. And just because someone who claims to be a doctor prances around in a white lab coat and claims your child needs their (profitable) chemicals doesn’t mean he’s telling you the truth. If he’s a pediatric oncologist, he’s probably lying to you as part of his fear-based sales pitch to coerce you into buying chemotherapy treatments. Remember: The No. 1 sales tool of the cancer industry is FEAR. And if fear doesn’t work, they simply call the police and resort to using INTIMIDATION and coercion instead. Gee, and they wonder why people are increasingly ditching conventional medicine, chemotherapy, pharmaceuticals and surgery? Maybe it’s because parents and families are tired of being treated like criminals by a class of arrogant medical scumbags who believe their power is more important than your freedom. Protect your children (and your freedom). Say NO to (poison-pushing) pediatricians. SOURCE: http://www.naturalnews.com/035290_pediatricians_chemotherapy_medical_freedom.html
Sugar – the “White Death”
Sugar is NOT your friend. It may “feel like” your friend when it comforts you (due to the beta-endorphin rush in your brain), but sugar is actually your enemy. Truth be told, regular consumption of sugary foods is one of the worst things that you can do to your health. Modern scientific research has shown us, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that sugar in your food (in all its myriad of forms) is taking a devastating toll on your health. Just take a look at the sugar consumption trends of the past 300 years:
- In 1700, the average person consumed about 4 pounds of sugar per year.
- In 1800, the average person consumed about 18 pounds of sugar per year.
- In 1900, individual consumption had risen to 90 pounds of sugar per year.
- In 2012, more than 50% of all Americans consume 1/2 pound of sugar PER DAY””translating to a whopping 180 pounds of sugar per year!
In 1890, only 3 people out of 100,000 had diabetes. In 2012, diabetes strikes almost 8,000 out of every 100,000 people! The “sugar rush” has really been targeted at children. American children are consuming about TEN TIMES as much sugar as they were in 1900, especially in the form of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is the average American’s largest source of calories! Highly addictive HFCS contains fructose and glucose, but they are NOT bound together (as they are in table sugar) so your body doesn’t need to break it down. Therefore, the fructose is absorbed immediately, going straight to your liver, which turns it into FAT (VLDL and triglycerides). According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, “Fructose also tricks the body into gaining weight by fooling your metabolism (it turns off the appetite-control system. Fructose does not appropriately stimulate insulin, which in turn does not suppress ghrelin (the “hunger hormone”) and doesn’t stimulate leptin (the “satiety hormone”), which together result in your eating more and developing insulin resistance.” But just because you avoid HFCS doesn’t mean that you’re in the clear. Excess intake of ALL processed sugars results in compromised immune function (decreasing the white blood cells’ ability to destroy bacteria), obesity, and diabetes. Remember, sugar is cancer’s favorite food! And since half of the white sugar in the USA comes from sugar beets, you should remember that most beets are now genetically modified. Yet another reason to stay away from the “White Death” isn’t it? I personally recommend that you avoid white sugar, brown sugar, agave, and all artificial sweeteners. If you have a sweet tooth, it’s best to stick with stevia, xylitol, raw honey/maple syrup, molasses, and coconut sugar. The bottom line: If you want to be healthy, you MUST take control of your sugar intake so that it doesn’t take control over you. It is easy to become confused by the various sugars and sweeteners, so here is a basic overview:
- Saccharide = sugar
- Glucose (aka “dextrose” or “grape sugar”), galactose (“milk sugar”), and fructose (“fruit sugar”) are all “monosaccharides” (i.e. single sugar molecules), known as “simple sugars.” The primary difference between them is how your body metabolizes them.
- Glucose is the form of energy you were designed to run on. Every cell in your body uses glucose for energy.
- High amounts of fructose are very damaging to the body, since if fructose isn’t burned immediately for energy, it travels directly to the liver, where it is converted to triglycerides (fats). Excess triglycerides increase insulin resistance (and insulin production), thus contributing to diabetes in a “back door” fashion.
- The simple sugars can combine to form more complex sugars, like sucrose (“table sugar”) which is a “disaccharide” comprised of 50% glucose and 50% fructose.
- “Refined” white sugar (pure sucrose) is washed with a syrup solution, then with hot water, clarified (usually chemically) to remove impurities, decolorized, concentrated, evaporated, re-boiled until crystals form, centrifuged again to separate, then dried. By this point, any remnants of “natural goodness” and “nutritional value” have completely disappeared! Quite frankly, white sugar should be considered to be an “industrial product” rather than a “food.”
- “Brown sugar” is just white sugar mixed with molasses.
- “Raw” sugar is not really raw ”“ it has been cooked, and most of the minerals and vitamins are gone. But it’s probably a little better than refined white sugar because it has a little of the molasses remaining.
- Aspartame is a neurotoxic rat poison need I say more?
- Splenda (sucralose) is NOT a sugar, despite its deceptive marketing slogan, “made from sugar.” It’s a chlorinated artificial sweetener in line with aspartame, though not quite as harmful.
- Honey is approximately 50% fructose, but in natural (raw) form contains many health benefits.
- Stevia is an extremely sweet herb derived from the leaf of the South American stevia plant, which is completely safe (in its natural form).
- Agave nectar is made from the agave plant, which is a cactus. Sound natural, right? Like maple syrup from a tree, or honey from a beehive. Only it isn’t. Agave is HIGHLY processed, and the end product does not even remotely resemble the original agave plant. And agave is approximately 80% fructose (much higher than honey and maple syrup).
- HFCS is 55% fructose and 45% glucose.
- Rapadura is the pure juice extracted from the sugar cane (using a press), which is then evaporated over low heats, whilst being stirred with paddles, then seive ground to produce a grainy sugar. It has not been cooked at high heats, and spun to change it into crystals, and the molasses has not been separated from the sugar. “Sucanat” is the USA trade name for Rapadura.
- Coconut sugar is made from the sweet watery sap that drips from the cut flower buds of fresh coconuts. It has a low glycemic index (GI) and is rich in amino acids. It is typically less than 10% fructose, with sucrose being the primary component.
- Xylitol is a sweetener known as a “sugar alcohol” (or polyol). Sugar alcohols are neither sugars nor alcohols ”“ they are carbohydrates (with structures that happen to resemble sugar and alcohol). Xylitol is extracted from birch cellulose. Unlike sugar, Xylitol is slowly absorbed, does not cause a rapid blood sugar increase, and does not require an immediate insulin response from the body to be metabolized. And because Xylitol is anti-bacterial, many studies have shown that it actually helps prevent dental cavities, ear infections, and some evidence suggests that it helps prevent gum disease.
Long before the first Europeans stepped off the ship, Native Americans were making dumplings, raisins, drinks and poultices with the large, sweet bunches of grapes called “Cherokee muscadines.” In 1524, Giovanni da Verrazzano (a Florentine navigator who explored the Cape Fear River valley for France) first spotted muscadines in North Carolina. He wrote in his logbook that he saw “many vines growing naturally there.” Also known as “scuppernong,” muscadines are bronze or a purple black color and tend to be larger, stronger and have thicker skins than traditional grapes. Found in Southeastern states from Texas to Georgia and up to North Carolina, muscadine grapes appear in all types of local recipes. Growing up outside Dallas, I remember eating muscadine jam and jelly and drinking muscadine juice many times as a young boy. But jams and jellies and juices don’t really offer the full health benefits of the muscadine grape, since it turns out that the juice and seeds and skin and pulp all have various health benefits. This being so, it’s really prudent to have eat the entire grape (including seeds) or take a supplement that utilizes the entire muscadine (skin, pulp, seeds, and juice). Here’s something very interesting. Normal grapes have 19 pairs of chromosomes, but muscadines actually have an extra pair of chromosomes! That’s rightthey have 20 pairs! While the fact that muscadines have more chromosomes makes for some interesting trivia, the real excitement comes from the change in phytochemicals and nutrients that those extra chromosomes facilitate. Muscadine grapes flourish in climates that would kill most European grapes, and as a result, they are chock full of more nutrients and antioxidants than any other grape. So, the old maxim, “Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” also applies to muscadines. But that’s not all. Muscadines are unique in that they have a different phytochemical makeup than all other grapes. In addition to having 20 pairs of chromosomes (rather than 19), muscadines also have 6x the resveratrol content of typical red grapes. I’ve written a bunch about resveratrol, which belongs to a group of components called “phytoalexins.” Phytoalexins are produced by some plants to help protect it from attacks from bacteria, fungi, insects, harsh weather, and other types of environmental stress. Resveratrol is, in effect, a natural antibiotic that plants produce to help protect from infections. Real quick, just to define some terms, plants contain a broad class of “good stuff” that is referred to as “polyphenols” (there are over 10,000 different polyphenols in the plant kingdom). “Flavonoids” are actually a large group of components underneath the polyphenol class, while “proanthocyanidins” and “anthocyanins” and “phytoalexins” fall under the flavonoid group. OK, so back to muscadines. They also have 40x the antioxidants of red grapes and contain extremely high levels of quercetin (a healthy flavonoid) and more dietary fiber than oat bran or rice. If you search PubMed.gov, you’ll see that there have been over 2,500 studies on red wine, over 800 studies on grape seeds, and over 600 studies on red grapes. Red wine and red grapes are incredibly healthy and the studies on heart health and longevity have been nothing short of amazing. But muscadines actually take all the health benefits of the red grape and “kick it up a notch.” Another fascinating facet of muscadines is that they are the ONLY grape that contains ellagic acid, which has been the focus of a plethora of studies due to its anti-cancer and tumor fighting properties. Ellagic acid may assist in “chemoprevention” (i.e. preventing cancer). There is great interest in chemoprevention (not to be confused with chemotherapy) because it may be the best way to fight cancer: prevent it from growing before it reaches a level that causes problems. On September 1, 2007 the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) published the results of their study on muscadine grape skins in the Cancer Research Journal. Rather than us telling you what the study found, let’s look at some direct quotes from the study. (LINK)
- “Laboratory experiments show that an extract of the skin of muscadine grapes can inhibit growth of prostate cancer cells in the laboratory.”
- “Using a series of human prostate cancer cells, representing different stages of prostate cancer progression, the researchers showed that Muscadine Skin Extract (MSKE) significantly inhibits the growth of cancerous, but not normal, prostate cells, primarily by inducing a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death.”
- “The fact that all of the cells studied, which cover the different stages of prostate cancer tumor progression, responded to MSKE suggests that the active compounds in this extract may inhibit tumor development at very early stages.”
- “Although MSKE has significant inhibitory effects on the prostate cancer cell lines, it did not alter the growth variables of normal human primary prostate cells. This strongly suggests that the effects of MSKE may be specific for transformed cells, even at early stages, and that MSKE may be potentially very useful as a chemopreventive agent.”
The above NIH Study shows that the ellagic acid in muscadines can inhibit the growth of cancer cells by inducing programmed cell death and resveratrol works by blocking the cell cycle. Both are important mechanisms to prevent the development of cancer. Muscadine grapes provide all the health benefits that have been associated with red wine and grapes PLUS all the benefits that come from the ellagic acid!

True Confessions of a Radiation Therapist
The following is a direct quotation I received a few weeks ago from a man named Ken Brady, who is a Radiation Therapist. To be honest, it blew my socks off Hi Ty, I purchased your book Cancer ”“ Step Outside the Box, and I’m really starting to get into it now. I’ve been watching your Youtube clips, which I enjoy learning from. I am a Radiation Therapist and have seen hundreds of patient die after being burned up and shot up with chemo. I managed two different cancer centers during a ten year period. I also have friends that are Radiation and Chemo Doctors, and as you know it is a business and they thrive off of getting new patients. I must tell you that these doctors are filthy rich. One of the main doctors had five homes, an airplane, and I’m sure many other things that I did not know about. The main chemo doctor had a home in an average size town (where if you lived in a 3,000 square feet home, you would be considered “rich”). Now this doctor lived in a 22,000 square feet home, with a basketball court, tennis court, man-made pond, and a tall iron gate, with security cameras. Honestly, I could care less about their possessions; I just wanted you to know what the deaths of all the local cancer patients have paid for. One thing that really opened my eyes: we would get patients (on their “death bed”) and would be forced to rush to start them on radiation that same day. I ask the doctor why it was necessary to start the patient on radiation so quickly, when they were so weak, because it seemed to me that it would do more harm than good. He blew my mind when he said: “I know this will sound morbid, but if the patient dies before they receive at less three treatments, then we do not get paid.” I just said “OK,” but now my eyes were wide open and I really saw the greed in the cancer industry.
OK, enough for this time. But stay tuned. My next monthly newsletter will have more great info.
And please remember that CANCER DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A DEATH SENTENCE!
Thanks and God bless.
