One caveat, though, is that the fat must be derived from plants. Scientists say eating a diet containing high amounts of coconut oil and other plant-based fat lowers gut inflammation, which causes damage to your health in a number of ways.</b></span></div><br /><br /><div id="rcjsload_8abb29"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39190&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_8abb29"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script> <br /> <span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">According to Medical News Today, patients with Crohn's disease — which, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK),<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn1">1</a> affects half a million people in the U.S. — could decrease their symptoms with one simple tweak in their diet: changing the type of fat they eat. Here’s how it works, as first study author Dr. Alexander Rodriguez-Palacios and his colleagues wrote:</span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“A high fat diet may lead to specific changes in gut bacteria that could fight harmful inflammation — a major discovery for patients suffering from Crohn's disease, research indicates. Crohn's disease, a type of inflammatory bowel syndrome, causes debilitating intestinal swelling, cramping and diarrhea.”<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn2">2</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>‘Remarkable’ Findings, Researchers Say</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Scientists used animal models (mice), which were given two different diets. One group was fed <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/07/11/health-benefits-omega-3-fats.aspx">“good” fats</a>, such as coconut oil and cocoa butter. The other group was given a “normal” diet. Study authors wrote:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“Mice fed beneficial fatty diets had up to [30] percent fewer kinds of gut bacteria as those fed a normal diet, collectively resulting in a very different gut microbial composition … Mice fed even low concentrations of coconut oil or cocoa butter also had less severe small intestine inflammation.”<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn3">3</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Interestingly, a portion at the opening of the intestine, called the cecum, is where <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/crohns-disease/symptoms.aspx">Crohn’s disease</a> typically causes the most inflammation, and that was an area positively impacted by <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/health-benefits-coconut-oil.aspx">coconut oil</a> on the subjects in the study. The decrease in intestinal inflammation caused by consuming healthy fats was just as dramatic even when the fats were eaten in small amounts.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">One of the most significant points the scientists discussed from their research was in regard to the way good fats impacted the composition of gut microbes. Rodriguez-Palacios noted that all (human) patients need to do to glean similar effects in their bodies is to “replace a 'bad' fat with a 'good' fat, and eat normal amounts.”</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /><b>Gut Bacteria Changes When Coconut Oil Is Introduced</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The featured study, conducted at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, was one of the first to identify specific changes in <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/12/14/feed-gut-microbes.aspx">gut bacteria</a> as impacted by Crohn’s disease, and the first to show that the type of fats people eat directly influences the diversity of their gut bacteria, and that, in turn, modulates the severity and even presence of the disease.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Rodriguez-Palacios said he believes the findings could help doctors identify beneficial bacteria that could treat patients with ongoing inflammatory bowel disorders and said the next move will be to identify which components in said good and bad fats make the difference in <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/12/14/feed-gut-microbes.aspx">gut microbes</a> — and use the good ones in anti-inflammatory probiotics testing. In addition, one of their findings was that consuming different types of fats may not have the same effects in everyone. He noted:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“Mice (studies) indicate that each person could respond differently. But diet is something we are very hopeful could help at least some patients without the side-effects and risks carried by drugs. The trick now is to really discover what makes a fat 'good' or 'bad' for Crohn's disease."<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn4">4</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Besides the coconut oil and cocoa butter used in the study as good fats, scientists also used other delicious sources of good fats such as <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/04/24/avocados-may-help-prevent-metabolic-syndrome.aspx">avocados</a>, nuts (particularly <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/03/21/benefits-eating-nuts.aspx">macadamias, pecans and walnuts</a>), salmon (and note that wild-caught Alaskan salmon is the healthiest variety) and extra-virgin olive oil.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /><b>Crohn’s Disease: Symptoms and Who’s at Risk</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Onset of Crohn’s disease is most common among adults in their 20s. Symptoms include intestinal swelling, cramping, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, weight loss and anemia. Express, a U.K. publication, notes that ulcerative colitis is another way bowel inflammation causes damage and can mimic Crohn’s symptoms.<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn5">5</a> The study synopsis adds something that could spark an interesting debate, which has to do with the cause of Crohn’s disease.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Many scientists say it’s anybody’s guess what causes it and insist there’s currently no cure; however, they’re also quick to mention that certain medications may ease symptoms. Besides colitis and related problems, some of the most serious symptoms of Crohn’s disease include:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><ul><li>Diarrhea&nbsp;</li><li>Swollen, painful skin on areas of your body</li><li>Abdominal pain&nbsp;</li><li><a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/01/19/foods-that-chronic-pain-sufferers-need-to-avoid.aspx">Painful, swollen joints</a></li><li>Blood or mucus in your bowel movements&nbsp;</li><li>Fever or high temperature</li><li>Sore, red eyes&nbsp;</li><li>Fatigue</li><li>Unintended weight loss&nbsp;</li><li>Mouth ulcers</li></ul></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>Recent News Claims Coconut Oil Is ‘Dangerous’</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Although many studies have emerged in recent years refuting claims that saturated fat is bad for you and that you should limit or completely eliminate your intake, entities like the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Stroke Association continue to throw beneficial animal fats such as whole-fat dairy products into the same vat as trans fats.<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn6">6</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Another AHA site places vegetable oils like canola, corn and soybean oil in the same group as olive oil, calling them “better for you” <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/08/31/trans-fat-saturated-fat.aspx">cooking oils</a>. As it happens, there are a lot of crucial differences you should be aware of, from trans fats to cooking temperatures to the presence of such ingredients as highly inflammatory aldehydes, which may be implicated in Alzheimer’s and heart disease.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">While the site encourages you to make your own salad dressings rather than settle for store-bought selections, which are often laced with rancid vegetable oils, added sugar and <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/10/03/hfcs-and-obesity-epidemic.aspx">high-fructose corn syrup</a>, no differences are noted in the balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids or the way these oils the are affected by high heat — or how they affect your arteries.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">As usual, a little truth is mixed in with a lot of misinformation. Recent reports have been heralding things like, “Coconut oil has more ‘bad’ fat than beef and butter,” or titled “Stop eating coconut oil! It’s only good as a moisturizer, study says.” One quote declares, “According to the (AHA), coconut oil is not as healthy as everyone has been hyping it up to be. As a matter of fact, it isn't even healthy.”<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn7">7</a>&nbsp;But author and nutrition authority David Wolfe says:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“The benefits of coconut oil for thyroid problems come from its unique medium-chain fatty acid. Lauric acid, a type of medium-chain triglyceride found in coconut oil, has excellent anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Capric acid has potent antimicrobial and antiviral properties, and caprylic acid boasts a number of health benefits, thanks to its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.”<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn8">8</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>Leptin, Lectin and the Link to Autoimmune Diseases</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">If you’re overweight and still crave food, especially junk food and sugars, these are indications that you may have a leptin issue. Your body is designed to naturally regulate how much you eat and the energy you burn. Part of how this occurs is through the release of the hormones ghrelin and leptin.</div><br /><script>var RevContentSolo = { widget_id: 75284, button_text: 'Find Out More'};</script> <script type="text/javascript" id="revsoloserve" src="http://labs-cdn.revcontent.com/build/revsoloserve.min.js"></script><br /> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">When you eat a sugar dessert, for instance, your body increases production of leptin, which regulates your appetite and fat storage. Ghrelin, on the other hand, is known as the "hunger hormone" because people given the hormone in a study on grehlin became so ravenous, they ate markedly more than their usual food intake. And, according to a study in the journal Nutrients, an imbalance of omega-6 fatty acids increases leptin and insulin resistance:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">"The scientific evidence to balance the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is robust and necessary for normal growth and development, prevention and treatment of obesity and its comorbidities including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn9">9</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The study concluded that the balancing act can be put in place if more studies explore how nutrients are metabolized and how genes function. Lectins, on the other hand, bind to carbohydrates and attach to cells that allow them to do harm. Just like sugar, many lectins are proinflammatory, immunotoxic, neurotoxic and cytotoxic. Certain lectins may also increase blood viscosity, interfere with gene expression and disrupt endocrine function.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Among the most problematic lectin-containing foods are wheat and other seeds of the grass family, beans, <a href="http://www.mercola.com/Downloads/bonus/dangers-of-soy/report.aspx">soy</a> and other legumes, peanuts, and members of the nightshade family such as eggplants, potatoes, tomatoes and peppers. There is some confusion about the difference between leptin and <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/01/21/grains-causing-gut-leaks.aspx">lectins</a> — lectins may promote leptin resistance. Naturopathic doctor Jon Dunn notes:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“Lectins are carbohydrates that plants make to protect themselves from insects and diseases. Some plants have high levels of lectins including all legumes, dried beans, soy, peanuts and the nightshade family: potato (especially genetically modified potatoes), tomato, eggplant and peppers. The other major source of dietary lectins comes from cereal grains: wheat, rye, barley, wheat germ, quinoa, rice, oats, millet and corn.”<a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx#_edn10">10</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>Describing leptin, Dunn continues:</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“Leptin is a weight regulating and appetite control hormone produced in fat. Under normal conditions, when fat cells fill up, they begin to secrete leptin. Carried in the blood stream, leptin works its way deep into the brain and stimulates the hypothalamus. A leptin stimulated hypothalamus releases hormones that speed up metabolism, burn excess fat, provide satiety and maintain healthy weight.”</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Persistently elevated leptin levels adversely affect insulin levels, as well as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and obesity, while decreasing fertility and hastening aging.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Dr. Steven Gundry, who just completed a human study on lectins, also talks about the hidden dangers of lectins, and advocates a lectin-avoidance diet. His book, “The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in ‘Healthy’Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain,” describes examples of patients whose Crohn’s simply disappeared, then recurred when they <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/05/22/beans-toxic-lectin-rich-foods.aspx">introduced lectins back into their diet</a>.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Interestingly, Gundry is not a fan of coconut oil in the initial stages, and in fact suggests that people with the beginnings of Crohn’s get off it, because lauric acid specifically piggy-backs the lipopolysaccharides and facilitates their transport into the bloodstream. He likes <a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/08/22/mct-oil-health-benefits.aspx">MCT oil</a> better.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">However, I believe it would be a mistake to assume all lectins are bad for you. For example, coconut oil is loaded with MCTs that are easily metabolized because MCTs do not require special enzymes and they can be utilized more effectively by your body, thus putting less strain on your digestive system.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">They bypass the bile and fat storage process and go directly to your liver, where they are converted into ketones, which are quickly released into the bloodstream and used as fuel — which may explain why our featured article shows that people with Crohn’s disease may ultimately benefit from coconut oil.<br /><i><br /></i><a href="http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/07/10/coconut-oil-for-crohns.aspx" style="font-family: arial; font-size: 16px; text-align: start;"><i>Original Article By Mercola.com</i></a><br /><i>Image Credit - <a href="https://pixabay.com/en/coconut-oil-glass-dish-organic-bowl-1469337/">Pixabay</a>/<a href="https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Crohn%27s_disease_-_duodenum_-_intermed_mag.jpg">Wikimedia</a></i><br /><br /><br /><div id="rcjsload_4cf8a9"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39184&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_4cf8a9"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script><br /><br /><br /> <span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; text-align: start;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">I</span><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">f you enjoyed this</span></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic;">&nbsp;article or learned something new, please don't forget to share it with others so they have a chance to enjoy this free information.

Here they are:</span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">1. Stress &amp; Anxiety</span></h3></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Stress is a common issue in modern society as we expose ourselves to more stressful situations. Unlike us, our ancestors faced stress through short experiences like when in danger, or excited, like when hunting or running from predators. Through many lifestyle factors and dietary factors, our stress levels are greatly impacted. Many prescription medicines used for anxiety and chronic stress is harmful to our bodies, while natural alternatives are weak. Then, comes in cannabis oil.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">In 2013, a <a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23433741">study</a> was published that discovered treatment involving the use of cannabinoids after a traumatic/stressful experience could potentially help to stabilize the emotional response from the subject. <a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26195653">Researchers</a> are now finding that cannabinoids are able to slow down stress receptors in the hippocampus (part of the brain where emotional response is controlled).&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3>2. Asthma</h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Cannabis has been utilized as a treatment for respiratory illnesses in many ancient Indian and Chinese cultures. With its analgesic effects and anti-inflammatory properties, including the ability to dilate the bronchial tubes, providing a better flow of oxygen.<br /><br />For millions who suffer from asthma, cannabis oil could be a potent solution to their condition. <a href="http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM197305102881902">Many studies</a> were conducted in the 1970s that looked into the bronchodilatory impacts of cannabis on asthma patients. Many asthma patients in the study had benefitted positively from the treatment.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3>3. Heart Health</h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">There are antioxidant properties found within cannabis oil that could treat heart-related issues. Studies on animals have found that cannabis oil treatments are powerful the prevention against some cardiovascular issues, including strokes, atherosclerosis, and heart attacks.<br /><br />In 2014, a team of British researchers <a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24548820">discovered</a> that the results from animal studies had applied to human heart conditions as well. It was recognized that cannabinoids have the ability to relax and dilate blood vessels so circulation can be improved and blood pressure is lowered.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3>4. Pain Relief</h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Traditional uses of cannabis was geared towards healing chronic pain. This dates back to thousands of years ago. Now, we have evidence that proves cannabis products are effective in healing discomfort by preventing neural transmissions in the body’s pain pathways. They also have the ability to reduce inflammation, which explains why cancer patients take them while going through sessions of chemotherapy.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">In 2010, <a href="http://www.cmaj.ca/content/182/14/E694.abstract">A study</a> in Canada found that cannabis is an effective treatment towards chronic pain. 23 adult participants, who suffered from neuropathic pain from trauma or surgery, were in the study. Over the span of 2 weeks, the participants were randomly selected and administered cannabis in 4 various potency levels. Results observed that when participants took it 3 times a day, cannabis was effective in reducing chronic, severe pain, as well as stabilizing sleeping patterns.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><script>var RevContentSolo = { widget_id: 75284, button_text: 'Find Out More'};</script> <script id="revsoloserve" src="http://labs-cdn.revcontent.com/build/revsoloserve.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script><br /><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3>5. Skin Protection</h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">You can actually apply cannabis oil on your skin to give it a more healthier glow. The oil can exfoliate the old cells and stimulate the growth of new skin cells to replace them. It also aids in lipid production, which works to fight off acne and psoriasis. Besides being able to eliminate stress, cannabis oil can also prevent skin diseases that are stimulated by anxiety like rosacea or eczema.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3>6. Seizures</h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Evidence from small studies and personal reports state that cannabis oil is powerful in seizure prevention and could end up being a form of treatment towards epilepsy in the future. Not enough evidence is out there to make it worthy of selling for commercial use for the illnesses. Many published studies aren’t able to even reach a conclusion that is purely decisive.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3>7. Cancer</h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Cancer is the most dreaded disease and most controversial in history. There is a lot of enthusiasm with cannabis oil now that people are seeing its effects through personal stories etc. Scientists are <a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3202504/">finding</a> that some cannabinoids have many positive effects in lab conditions like:</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Preventing new blood vessels from becoming tumors<br /><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Reducing the risk of cancer cells spreading through the body and penetrating healthy neighboring tissue.<br /><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Triggering the death of cancer cells through apoptosis<br /><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Preventing the division of cancer cells</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Despite strong evidence pointing to cannabis being a superheater, it still has yet to be recognized as a cure.</div></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;"><div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;"><br /></span></span></div><div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.foodmatters.com/article/7-health-benefits-of-cannabis-oil?utm_source=fmsocial&amp;utm_medium=mercola&amp;utm_content=mercola">Source</a></span></span></div><div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Image Credit - <a href="http://maxpixel.freegreatpicture.com/Medicinal-Aromatic-Drugs-Grass-Omega-3-Nature-206150">MaxPixel</a></span></div><div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;"><br /></span></span></div></span></span><br /><div id="rcjsload_4cf8a9"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39184&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_4cf8a9"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script> <br /><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">I</span><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">f you enjoyed this</span></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">&nbsp;article or learned something new, please don't forget to share it with others so they have a chance to enjoy this free information.

Jones says his deputies won’t carry Narcan, despite its effectiveness reversing the effects of opioid and heroin overdoses. He’s the only sheriff in Southwest Ohio refusing to carry the life-saving medicine.</span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The sheriff made this reckless decision in spite of the fact that drug overdoses continue to be the leading cause of death in the entire county. According to the coroner, the county is now on track to break last year’s record for the highest number of overdose deaths.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“The disturbing trend of overdose deaths involving fentanyl in Butler County continues at an alarming rate,” said Butler County Coroner Lisa Mannix in a recent press conference.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Jones’ reasoning for refusing to revive overdosed individuals with Narcan is not surprising — officer safety.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">According to Jones, when deputies save the life of someone during an overdose, they often wake up, see the deputies, and freak out.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">“I don’t do Narcan,” Jones told reporter Keith BieryGolick.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">As FOX 19 <a href="http://www.fox19.com/story/35831390/butler-county-sheriff-my-deputies-wont-use-narcan">reports, </a>Jones’ remarks Thursday come after a Middletown city councilman recently brought national attention to that Butler County city by suggesting letting addicts die instead of repeatedly reviving them with Narcan.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The suggestion to let addicts die from their overdose brings into question the responsibility of the state to protect people from themselves.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Jones and his deputies will undoubtedly pull over hundreds of people this year and issue them citations for not wearing their seat belts. This extortion will be carried out in the name of public safety and protecting people from themselves.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The sheriff refusing to protect people from their heroin overdoses highlights the hypocrisy in seat belt tickets as well as other citations, arrests, and detainment for victimless crimes that the sheriff is more than happy to enforce.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Also, what if the sheriff and his deputies found a child who accidentally overdosed on their parent’s opioid supply? How would they feel knowing they could’ve saved the life of an innocent child if they would’ve simply carried Narcan?</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Also, the question still remains: Does the state have a legal responsibility to save your life with Narcan if you overdose on opioids?</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Being that the sheriff is funded by the very people who may experience an overdose one day, the answer to that question is most likely yes. The citizens of Butler are forced to pay for the sheriff’s department, therefore the sheriff owes them a service in return.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">However, where is the line drawn? Should police simply continue to go on calls and revive people over and over with Narcan that can cost up to $75 per dose?</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">To understand the answers to those questions, we have to look at how the state has essentially created and facilitated the current opioid epidemic in which America currently finds itself.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">For decades, the US government has waged a war on drugs while granting the monopoly on opioid production to the pharmaceutical industry. For years, people who would’ve never thought of trying heroin trusted their <a href="http://thefreethoughtproject.com/pharma-bribing-family-fentanyl/">doctors who were being paid large sums of money to prescribe them dangerous and addictive opioids.&nbsp;</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><script>var RevContentSolo = { widget_id: 75284, button_text: 'Find Out More'};</script> <script type="text/javascript" id="revsoloserve" src="http://labs-cdn.revcontent.com/build/revsoloserve.min.js"></script><br /> <div style="text-align: justify;">As the crack down on opioids came to a head, all the ‘legal’ drug addicts were forced into the black market to continue supporting their addictions. Soccer moms and business professionals alike quickly found themselves buying highly dangerous fentanyl and heroin on the black market to support their government-approved pharmaceutical industry-sustained addictions.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Instead of helping these people, who clearly have physical and mental addictions and need help, the government simply began locking them in cages when they caught them with it.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Research — according to many law enforcement officials — shows that the cost of incarceration, especially for repeat drug offenders, is far higher than simply treating their addiction.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The good news is that people like Jones are quickly finding themselves obsolete. Law enforcement across the country are realizing that treatment — not cages — curbs the problem of addiction far more successfully.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">This realization has led to the <a href="http://thefreethoughtproject.com/they-help-handcuffs-brave-cops-stand-drug-war-start-revolution-louisiana/">creation</a> of the Angel Program.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">As the Boston Globe <a href="https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/02/21/angel-opioid-initiative-thrives-despite-exit-gloucester-police-chief/hvH14GgG0dRYTXJOpGEswO/story.html">reports:</a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Campanello is no longer police chief there, but the program is continuing in Gloucester. The concept of helping addicts instead of criminalizing them is such a success, it’s been adopted by 200 police agencies in 28 states.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Aside from the angel program, stopping the war on drugs is also having a heavy effect on reducing opioid overdoses.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">As TFTP has reported at length, states with legal cannabis see far fewer overdoses than those who cage people for the plant.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Solutions to this epidemic exist, but in order for them to be successful, government must legalize freedom and admit that the war on drugs is an epic failure. While things may seem bleak, these tiny changes are already beginning to have a major positive effect.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Soon enough, the dinosaurs who continue to push the drug war will be seen as the tyrants they are. To all those in law enforcement, you will do well to place yourself on the right side of history — which, most assuredly, does not involve kidnapping, caging, and killing people in a failed war to control what those people do with their own bodies.<br /><br /><a href="http://thefreethoughtproject.com/i-dont-do-narcan-sheriff-promises-his-deputies-will-let-heroin-addicts-die/"><i>Original Article Source</i></a><br /><i>Image -&nbsp;<a href="http://thefreethoughtproject.com/i-dont-do-narcan-sheriff-promises-his-deputies-will-let-heroin-addicts-die/">TheFreeThoughtPoject</a></i><br /><br /><div id="rcjsload_8abb29"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39190&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_8abb29"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script> <br /> <br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; text-align: start;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">I</span><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">f you enjoyed this</span></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic;">&nbsp;article or learned something new, please don't forget to share it with others so they have a chance to enjoy this free information.

Many industrial experts disagree with such a product that is being labeled as organic, when it really is all additives.&nbsp;</span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><div style="text-align: justify;">A senior policy analyst, Charlotte Vallaeys, from Consumer Reports,<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/06/05/how-millions-of-cartons-of-organic-milk-contain-an-oil-brewed-in-industrial-vats-of-algae/?utm_term=.17f98aed3218"> told the Post that,</a><br /><br />“When an organic milk carton says it has higher levels of beneficial nutrients, like omega-3 fats, consumers want that to be the result of good farming practices … not from additives made in a factory.”&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The presence of the oil in organic milk is in fault from a misinterpretation in 2012 of the federal regulations laid out by the USDA, which the Post reports the federal agency “quietly acknowledged” but still needs to implement a final rule. The Post wrote that the USDA “maintained the status quo – allowing the use of algal oil, among other things – in order not to ‘disrupt’ the market.”</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Horizon milk with DHA algal oil is sold 30 cents more than regular Horizon milk. Horizon reports that 26 million gallons of DHA algal oil milk was sold last year, comprising of 14 percent of all organic milk sold. Costco’s Kirkland brand, along with many others, add in supplements to their milk to boost omega-3 levels, like refined fish oil.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The milk that is delivered to Costco is sourced straight out of Aurora Organic Dairy. The Post has reported that, in May, the company had been failing to graze its cattle as mandated by regulations.

It’s not a matter of if it will happen, but when. When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way.”</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div></span><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Regardless of what the government thinks, I wouldn’t want my children and I to be embedded with a microchip that disperses personal information to government surveillance. This isn’t freedom and the technology being used will instill fear on people, and that’s not how we should be living in the free country of the United States.<br /><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><i>Source: <a href="http://www.infowars.com/293622-2/">Info Wars</a> and <a href="http://yournewswire.com/dr-oz-microchips/">Your News Wire</a></i></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><i><a href="https://www.healthnutnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/maxresdefault-7-1024x576.jpg">Image Source</a></i></span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;"><br /></span></span> <br /><div id="rcjsload_4cf8a9"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39184&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_4cf8a9"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script><br /><br /><br /> <span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">I</span><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">f you enjoyed this</span></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">&nbsp;article or learned something new, please don't forget to share it with others so they have a chance to enjoy this free information.

Let’s prove this wrong with some facts.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">A big myth in nutrition is that your metabolism will be enhanced by eating small meals every 2-3 hours. This isn’t true as it has nothing to do with how many meals you eat in one day. Your metabolism stays the same whether you eat 3-6 meals a day. Weight loss doesn’t occur just because you frequently eat small portions.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">When it comes to your dietary regimen, you need to work on a meal plan that mixes well with your daily routine. There is a <a href="http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/81/1/16.short">good thing</a> in eating every 2-3 hours as it works to keep you filled and not waiting to eat a whole meal. Although, despite this, you will not lose your weight at a rapid rate or enhance your metabolism. This is a very old myth in the fitness industry.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>2. Extreme, low-calorie diets will lead to faster weight loss</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">This myth is completely false. A lot of people believe since back in ancient times that eating less food, means you would lose more. Theoretically, it is true. Although, if you eat less calories that what’s needed for your body to function as normal, your metabolism will decrease, making it hard to lose weight.<br /><br />Your calorie-burning ability will slow down. <a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4019017">Research</a> has discovered that when our diets consist of 1200 calories or less, we have the highest decrease in RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate). When you are on a diet, be sure you consume more than 1200 calories and keep it relatively at normal levels.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" class="YOUTUBE-iframe-video" data-thumbnail-src="https://i.ytimg.com/vi/AJeT57xhsHM/0.jpg" frameborder="0" height="266" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/AJeT57xhsHM?feature=player_embedded" width="475"></iframe></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><br /></b></div><br /><script>var RevContentSolo = { widget_id: 75284, button_text: 'Find Out More'};</script><script id="revsoloserve" src="http://labs-cdn.revcontent.com/build/revsoloserve.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script><br /> <div style="text-align: justify;"><b>3. All calories are not created equal</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">True!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Knowing how many calories you consume in a day is vital to weight loss. Be aware that your body digest different types of food differently. Around&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;">3% of all ‘fat’ calories are burned during the process of digestion. 20-30% of all ‘protein’ calories consumed are burned in the digestion process. About 6% of all ‘carb’ calories consumed are burned in digestion. Protein burns so quickly, even when going without exercise, because the calories come from protein when it involves weight loss.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">A good example for this is: If you consume 1,000 calories of chocolate ice-cream and 1,000 calories of chicken you would gain weight from eating the ice cream. 20-30% of the protein within the chicken would burn up during digestion, while 3% of fat from the chocolate ice-cream would burn in digestion. This is the <a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC524030/">Thermal Effect of Food (TEF)</a>.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><br /></b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>4. Eating late at night leads to weight gain</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">False!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">A lot of prominent individuals and celebrities have passed along this theory that when you stopped eating after 6 pm, that they would lose weight. In fact, your body will not store more fat at night than any other time of the day. The human body gains weight depending on two factors: what’s consumed and how much of it is consumed. Therefore, it doesn’t matter what time you eat food. According to <a href="https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/british-journal-of-nutrition/article/timing-of-the-evening-meal-how-is-this-associated-with-weight-status-in-uk-children/DDC3BC8A7C7FCFF919AA7FCA1C58BC76">research</a>, it has been found that late-night eating hadn’t lead to any significant weight gain.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">In Israel, <a href="https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/06/120625125050.htm">a 6-month study was conducted</a>. Some of the participants in the study had a huge meal for breakfast, while some had their largest meal after 8 pm. The researchers discovered that participants who ate a huge meal after 8 pm had lost 11% more weight and lost 10% of body fat than those who had their big meal at breakfast time. A problem with eating at night is if your last meal is the portion of 3 meals, leading to overconsumption of calories. Not good at all if you want to lose weight.&nbsp;</div><br /><div id="rcjsload_4cf8a9"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39184&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_4cf8a9"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script><br /><br /><br /> </span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">I</span><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">f you enjoyed this</span></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">&nbsp;article or learned something new, please don't forget to share it with others so they have a chance to enjoy this free information.

Mothers perceived their phone use as being more problematic than fathers, but both mothers and fathers associated interference with greater behavior problems and more child screen time.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">And the study results may have been more severe had they been more closely monitored - as currently constructed, the study relied entirely on what parents self-reported, both in terms of technology use and child behavior.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><i>“We need to critically examine our device use.

If we can use coconut oil as a safe, dietary alternative, we could decrease the amount of anti-fungal drugs used, reserving anti-fungal drugs for critical situations.”&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Past research can be found on <a href="http://greenmedinfo.com/">GreenMedInfo.com</a>, that proves coconut oil is a potent fighter against dermatophytes (a type of yeast that causes hair, nails, and skin infections because they can use keratin.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/coconut-oil-fights-deadly-yeast-infections-study-suggests">Image source</a></div></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;"><br /></span></span><br /><div id="rcjsload_4cf8a9"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39184&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_4cf8a9"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script> <br /><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">I</span><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">f you enjoyed this</span></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">&nbsp;article or learned something new, please don't forget to share it with others so they have a chance to enjoy this free information.

The study estimates that pesticides cost the EU 125 billion euros a year from damage brought on by the toxins. The report even emphasized the growing evidence finding insecticide residue causes brain damage, and IQ level reduction. Concerns are being raised that the chemicals could pose a significant threat to reproductive health and cause cancer.&nbsp;</span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><div style="text-align: justify;">Research from the European Parliament is more of a review on current scientific evidence on the impact of organic food on the human body. Previous attempts to examine pesticides effects have ignored research, bringing major concerns that there is an insufficient amount of regulation of insecticides.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The Study was conducted by the European Parliament's Scientific Foresight Unit, headed by the Swedish University of Agricultural Scientists.<br /><br /><b>The report states,</b><br /><br /><i>“At least 100 different pesticides are known to cause adverse neurological effects in adults, and all of these substances must therefore be suspected of being capable of damaging developing brains as well.“&nbsp;</i><br /><i><br /></i><i>“At least 100 different pesticides are known to cause adverse neurological effects in adults, and all of these substances must therefore be suspected of being capable of damaging developing brains as well,”&nbsp;</i></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><i><br /></i></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><i>“Such adverse effects are likely to be lasting and one main outcome is cognitive deficits, often expressed in terms of losses of IQ points. The combined evidence suggests that current exposures to certain pesticides in the EU may cost at least € 125 billion per year, as calculated from the loss of lifetime income due to the lower IQs associated with prenatal exposure.”&nbsp;</i></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The calculation is then described as “almost certainly” which underestimates it as it doesn’t take into consideration that pesticides contribute to diabetes, certain types of cancer and Parkinson’s disease.

Studies in the US have found that pregnant women’s exposure to pesticides had affected the child’s neurobehavioral development and IQ.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">One study found grey matter was thinner in children whose mothers were exposed to high levels of organophosphates, which are present in many pesticides.<br /><br /><b>The Soil Association policy director, Peter Melchett, said:</b><br /><br /><i>“This report is great for organic farmers and everyone who eats organic food.

These moves will greatly enhance body posture, alleviate pain, and improve balance.&nbsp;</span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Feet Are Very Important</span></h3></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Your feet are an essential part of the body that controls body posture, balance, and some pains. Feet provide us the ability to move around, so taking good care of them will ensure you a healthy body. When we get older our feet experience deterioration and pains, making walking and any physical activity too much to bear. This explains as to why 1 in 3 Americans fall and the risk rises when you get to your 80s and 90s. When you walk around, the pressure you put on each foot stabilizes the body’s balance. Having pain in one foot can lead to a disruption in balanced standing and walking.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Regularly exercising can work to strengthen body muscles and maintain optimal blood flow while preventing coordination issues that come with aging. Balance refers to our body posture and alignment of muscles and bones to keep us standing straight. When not aligned the body posture can fall off-kilter.<br /><br />One study concluded that women who wore high heels have a higher risk of lower back pain. This can cause posture issues which will force you to do pain-relieving methods.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>1. Toe – Pressing</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Give your toes a complete warm up before you consider doing any workout. When it comes to toe pressing, blood flow will be greatly enhanced and it will relax the toe. All you need to do is stand up, bend your knees a little, grasp the floor with your toes and remain in this stance for 3 seconds. This exercise should be completed 3 times a day to maintain strong toe health.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>2. Toe – Walking</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Your ligaments, toes and muscles will be strengthened by toe walking like a ballerina for about 20 seconds. This standing exercise will strengthen the feet if you complete the exercise 2 times a day. If you have poor balance, use the walls or a surface around you to hold onto. There’s nothing to worry about that as your feet will toughen up.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>3. Ankle – Circles</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Knee, ankle and hip pain are temporarily relieved with the help of this exercise. Pain in these areas are brought on by poor posture. When the upper body is bent and not aligned with the lower one, the weight will be uneven, causing irregular pressure on the lower back when walking. This exercise is simple. Lay on your backhand bend your legs up. Stretch one leg over your body, and rotate your ankle clockwise for 10 seconds. Do this with the other ankle as well. If you want the best of results, complete this exercise 2 times a day consistently.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>4. Resistance – Band</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Small muscles located within the foot is important to body balance. This mini exercise will relieve pain so you can walk pain-free. You will need an exercise band for this one, Start by sitting on the floor with your legs in front of you all straightened out. Wrap one side of the exercise band around a chair and wrap the other side on the top of your feet. While sitting, slide back until tension is felt. Flex backwards with your foot and hold for 5 reps, then release and repeat for another 10 reps.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>5. Toe-Pencil-Grasp</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">This exercise is so easy to do, and involves a pencil or pen. Take the pencil/pen and hold it with your toes for 10 seconds. Completing this exercise will strengthen your toes and is easily done anywhere. This should be done 2-3 times a week, and 5 times with each foot.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>6. Foot Massage</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Using a tennis ball, move it around the bottom of your feet. Start by placing the ball under the second toe and move around for 1-3 minutes, and repeat with the other foot.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>7. Stretching the Heel Tendons with the help of Your Knee</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><br /><script>var RevContentSolo = { widget_id: 75284, button_text: 'Find Out More'};</script><script type="text/javascript" id="revsoloserve" src="http://labs-cdn.revcontent.com/build/revsoloserve.min.js"></script><br /> <div style="text-align: justify;">Turned towards a wall standing, place your right leg in front of you and bend the right knee a little. Move your hips towards the wall while you have both heels firmly on the ground. Hold yourself in this position for 30 seconds, and relax for another 30 seconds. Repeat this two times and do the same with the other leg.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>8. Toe Stretching</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Sit in a chair with your left leg on your right thigh, then grab your toes with your right hand and shake them as if you're shaking hands with another person. Then, for 10 seconds, stretch your toes to the side. Complete this 3 times and repeat on the other foot.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>9. Heels</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Sitting on the ground, straighten your right leg out in front of you, while your left leg is under your thigh. Then bend forward, grab your toes and slowly move them in different directions. Stay like this for 30 seconds, and repeat 2 times with your legs.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>10. Upward Stretching of the Legs and the Toes</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Lay on your back and straighten out your legs in front of you. Have one leg in the air using a towel, straighten your knee, and slowly pull the towel towards you. Do not go too excessive with this to prevent injury. Do this for 20-30 seconds and repeat. The same should be conducted with the other leg too.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>Note:</b> If you are experiencing recurring hip, back, or knee pain of have issues pertaining to your body posture and coordination, then a visit to your doctor is highly advised before you start using these exercises. If these exercises are hard for you to handle, then there are other exercises that apply similar amounts of pressure to the feet.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The video below will help you understand how to do the exercises that will help take care of your feet and any aches.

The team studied fecal matter from 40 different women, allowing for study of their gut microbiomes.

These women appeared to experience profoundly negative emotions, including those related to distress and anxiety, when viewing negative images.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The second bacterial group, the Bacterioids, were more prevalent in the other 33 women.

Symptoms of this condition include hair loss, weight gain, fatigue, depression, period irregularities, muscle cramps, constipation, feeling cold, and forgetfulness.&nbsp;</span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3><b>So, Here Are 6 Solutions That Can Help You Balance Your Meals, Improve Your Thyroid Health, and Prevent Weight Gain:</b></h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>1. Start by Following These Recommendations:</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /><ul><li>Learn more about refined sugar</li><li>Be committed to eating healthy</li></ul></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>2. You Should Avoid Eating Simple Carbs Found in:</b><br /><b><br /></b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><ul><li>Corn Syrup Sweetened Products</li><li>Packaged Cereal</li><li>Flavored Juices</li><li>White Flour Products</li><li>Table Sugar</li><li>Soda</li><li><br /></li></ul></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Substitute these carbohydrates with complex carbs as they aren’t quickly processed by the body, therefore making you feel full longer. Unlike simple carbohydrates, these carb aren't addicting.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3>Here Are Some Complex Carb Foods:</h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Whole Wheat</div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Brown Rice</div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Oatmeal</div><div style="text-align: justify;">• Raw fruits or 100% Natural Fruit Juice</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>3. Get Regular Exercise to Stimulate Your Body to Burn More Fat</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Burning fat requires you to exercise daily, and certain exercises can help boost your metabolism so you can burn more fat. When you exercise at average intensity, it could stimulate the production of the thyroid hormones that help prevent weight gain. Focus on running, walking, aerobics and other cardio exercises.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><br /><script>var RevContentSolo = { widget_id: 75284, button_text: 'Find Out More'};</script><script type="text/javascript" id="revsoloserve" src="http://labs-cdn.revcontent.com/build/revsoloserve.min.js"></script><br /> <div style="text-align: justify;"><b>4. Introduce Coconut Oil in Your Daily Diet</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Many vegetables have fatty acids that work well to slow the functions of the thyroid. Coconut oil, however, is a healthy fat and contains medium-chain fatty acids that improve the function of your thyroid. Also, it strengthens your tolerance to glucose and insulin sensitivity. The oil can be used in cooking and takes 20 minutes before a meal to stop the accumulation of fat and boost your metabolism.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><b>5. Healthy Snacks</b></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">If you don’t know what to eat for a snack, then you could be shooting yourself in the foot metaphorically. It will kill your attempts to lose weight. During certain parts of the day you can have a couple snacks that will help you feel full when you go to eat big meals. This also helps with lowering your caloric intake.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3><b>Here Are the Best Food Choices for Your Underactive Thyroid:</b></h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Raw nuts have healthy fats and contain nutrients that benefit the thyroid. They are abundant in selenium, a nutrient responsible for improving thyroid function.<br /><br />Adding in more omega-3 fatty acids into your diet will also help too! Omega-3s can be found in fish, or a fish oil supplement to help in your weight loss.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Also, raw, organic, unpasteurized and unfiltered apple cider vinegar is perfect for you if you suffer from hypothyroidism, This wonderful vinegar aids in weight loss, lowers appetite, and levels out your hormones. If you want, and you don’t have a sensitive stomach, you can add 1 tbsp of raw, organic AVC to a glass of water and drink it daily.<br /><br /></div></span><br /><br /><div id="rcjsload_4cf8a9"></div><script type="text/javascript">(function() { var referer="";try{if(referer=document.referrer,"undefined"==typeof referer)throw"undefined"}catch(exception){referer=document.location.href,(""==referer||"undefined"==typeof referer)&&(referer=document.URL)}referer=referer.substr(0,700); var rcel = document.createElement("script"); rcel.id = 'rc_' + Math.floor(Math.random() * 1000); rcel.type = 'text/javascript'; rcel.src = "http://trends.revcontent.com/serve.js.php?w=39184&t="+rcel.id+"&c="+(new Date()).getTime()+"&width="+(window.outerWidth || document.documentElement.clientWidth)+"&referer="+referer; rcel.async = true; var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_4cf8a9"); rcds.appendChild(rcel); })(); </script><br /><br /><br /> <span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">I</span><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">f you enjoyed this</span></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: italic; text-align: justify;">&nbsp;article or learned something new, please don't forget to share it with others so they have a chance to enjoy this free information.

The study found that glyphosate impacted gastrointestinal bacteria of poultry - in vitro!&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><script>var RevContentSolo = { widget_id: 75284, button_text: 'Find Out More'};</script><script type="text/javascript" id="revsoloserve" src="http://labs-cdn.revcontent.com/build/revsoloserve.min.js"></script><br /> <span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Among the beneficial bacteria suppressed were Bacillus badius, &nbsp;Bifidobacterium adolescentis, Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, and Lactobacillus spp. Nasty bacteria that didn't mind glyphosate, and so remained, included Clostridium botulinum, Clostridium perfringens, Salmonella Entritidis, Salmonella Gallinarum, and Salmonella Typhimurium - none of which are exactly things you want hanging out in your gut.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Obviously, none of this bodes well for our health. We can strongly say that <a href="http://www.greenmedinfo.com/toxic-ingredient/roundup-herbicide">glyphosate-laced food</a> can screw up our intestinal bacteria - and not in any small ways - as a result of the findings of this study.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">And this new study adds to a growing concern that concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) chickens may becoming a breeding ground for botulism, and related pathogenic organisms.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Deadly botulism outbreaks in cattle, in fact, have recently been linked to poultry litter contamination in Ireland.</span><br /><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The reality is that GM farming practices, which are heavily reliant on glyphosate-based herbicide formulations, are creating a more serious long-term threat to our food security by drastically altering the composition of the soil, threatening its very fertility and ability to produce food for present and future generations.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>What Does This Mean For Our Food?</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">One of the obvious implications of this research is that poultry fed glyphosate-laced genetically modified corn or soy, for instance, would likely experience unhealthy changes in the make-up of their intestinal flora (known as dysbiosis), resulting in increasing harm not only to the animals, but to those consuming them.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Factory-farmed chickens are already routinely fed antibiotics, arsenic and even antidepressants, all of which represent serious health threats, both by contributing to the generation of communicable disease vectors, as well as contamination of the meat itself.</span><br /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">This new study adds to a growing concern that concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) chickens may becoming a breeding ground for botulism, and related pathogenic organisms.
