Are Anti-Biotics making you Fat?
Did you know your body is made up of about 100 trillion human cells, but that you are host to
1500 trillion microbes? In fact, two to five pounds of your body weight is nothing but microbes.
Most of this microbial life
lives in your gut and helps you digest the myriad of foods you eat. Recent science has revealed
that if you have an unhealthy balance of gut microbes — a condition called gut dysbiosis — it
affects more than just your digestion.(See Ref 1) It can cause immune-related disorders
including asthma or allergies, lead to mental problems in the form of ADD or bipolar disorder, and
even present neurological symptoms like autism or MS.
Antibiotics with a Side of Steak
We’re in a sad and weird place in biomedical
science. In the 1940’s we got penicillin, in the following 30 years another 13 different classes of
antibiotic were introduced. Since 1970 the number of new classes of antibiotic have dropped to a
worrying 2. Our most productive research is, simply put, new ways to arrange the deckchairs on our
once proud antibiotic ship that is now well and truly sinking.
This is an awful situation as we are fast
approaching a world full of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and no drugs to treat them. While
problems do exist in the way we diagnose and treat infectious disease, and there remain issues
relating to patient compliance, there is one aspect of our antibiotic use has vastly accelerated,
the use of antibiotics in agriculture.
Grass Fed vs Grain Fed: You are what Food they Eat
Cows are ruminants, superbly adapted to convert grass into meat or
milk. Research is proving that the health concerns long associated with eating beef result not from
eating beef, but rather from eating corn-fed beef.
During World War II farmers were producing more corn than the American population was consuming and
so, started feeding the surplus corn to cattle. They soon found that cows eating corn fattened up
much quicker than cows eating grass.

it took a cow four to five years to reach a slaughter weight of 1,200 pounds. Today it takes 13-15
months, thanks to corn, antibiotics, growth hormones and protein supplements.
Grass Fed Beef Nutrition Information vs Grass Fed Beef
Does grass fed beef nutrition really differ from conventionally raised
Granted, inhumane treatment, and unsanitary living conditions of mass beef production are enough to
make some people turn to local old-school cattle farms for their beef.Add the standardized use of
antibiotic regimens in cattle that may be contributing to antibiotic-resistant “superbugs,” and you
begin to understand why more and more people prefer cattle free to graze in pastures and raised the
way nature intended.
GM food toxins found in
the blood of 93% of unborn babies
GM firms claimed toxins were destroyed in
Mothers to be; were tested for Toxins implanted into GM food crops to kill pests are reaching
the bloodstreams of women and unborn babies, alarming research has revealed.
A landmark study found 93 per cent of blood samples taken from pregnant women and 80 per cent from
umbilical cords tested positive for traces of the chemicals.
Millions of acres in North and
South America, Africa are planted with GM corn containing the toxins, which is fed in vast
quantities to farm livestock around the world – including Britain. However, it is now clear the
toxins designed to kill crop pests are reaching humans and babies in the womb – apparently through
WORLD RENOWNED HEART SURGEON SPEAKS OUT ON WHAT REALLY CAUSES
We physicians with all our training,
knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit
we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong. As a heart surgeon with 25 years
experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong
with medical and scientific fact.
I trained for many years with other
prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature,
continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from
the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.
The only accepted therapy was
prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The
latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these
recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in
