Is The Food Your Children Eat, Turning Them Into Devils?

Back in 2002, a revolution started. In the Central Alternative High School of Appleton, WI, the kids now behave. The hallways aren't frantic anymore and even the teachers are happy.

The school used to be out of control. Kids packed weapons. Discipline problems overwhelmed the principal's office. But not since 1997. What happened? Did they post cops every few feet, did they spray valium gas in the classrooms, did they install metal detectors in the bathrooms, did they build holding cells in the gym? No, none of the above. In 1997, a private group called Natural Ovens began installing a healthy lunch program.

Huh? Fast-food burgers, fries, and burritos gave way to fresh salads, vegetables "prepared with old-fashioned recipes," and whole grain bread. Fresh fruits were added to the menu. Good drinking water arrived. Vending machines were removed. As reported in a newsletter called Pure Facts, "Grades are up, truancy is no longer a problem, arguments are rare, and teachers are able to spend their time teaching.

"Principal LuAnn Coenen, who files annual reports with the state of Wisconsin, has turned in some staggering figures since 1997. Drop-outs? Students expelled? Students discovered to be using drugs? Carrying weapons? Committing suicide? Every category has come up ZERO. Every year. Mary Bruyette, a teacher, states, "I don't have to deal with daily discipline issues. I don't have disruptions in class or the difficulties with student behavior I experienced before we started the food program." One student asserted, "Now that I can concentrate I think it's easier to get along with people" What a concept---eating healthier food increases concentration.

Principal Coenen sums it up: "I can't buy the argument that it's too costly for schools to provide good nutrition for their students. I found that one cost will reduce another. I don't have the vandalism. I don't have the litter. I don't have the need for high security.

"At a nearby middle school, the new food program is catching on. A teacher there, Dennis Abram, reports, "I've taught here almost 30 years. I see the kids this year as calmer, easier to talk to. They just seem more rational. I had thought about retiring this year and basically I've decided to teach another year---I'm having too much fun!"

Pure Facts, the newsletter that ran this story, is published by a non-profit organization called The Feingold Association, which has existed since 1976. Part of its mission is to "generate public awareness of the potential role of foods and synthetic additives in behavior, learning and health problems. The [Feingold] program is based on a diet eliminating synthetic colors, synthetic flavors, and the preservatives BHA, BHT, and TBHQ."

Thirty plus years ago there was a Dr. Feingold. His breakthrough work proved the connection between these negative factors in food and the lives of children. Hailed as a revolutionary advance, Feingold's findings were soon trashed by the medical cartel, since those findings threatened the drugs-for-everything, disease-model concept of modern healthcare. But Feingold's followers have kept his work alive. 

If what happened in Appleton, Wisconsin, takes hold in many other communities across America, maybe the ravenous corporations who invade school space with their vending machines and junk food will be tossed out on their behinds. It could happen. And perhaps ADHD will become a dinosaur. A non-disease that was once attributed to errant brain chemistry. And perhaps Ritalin will be seen as just another toxic chemical that was added to the bodies of kids in a crazed attempt to put a lid on behavior that, in part, was the result of a subversion of the food supply.

For those readers who ask me about solutions to the problems we face---here is a real solution. Help these groups. Get involved. Step into the fray. Stand up and be counted. The drug companies aren't going to do it. They're busy estimating the size of their potential markets. They're building their chemical pipelines into the minds and bodies of the young. Every great revolution starts with a foothold. Sounds like Natural Ovens and The Feingold Association have made strong cuts into the big rock of ignorance and greed.

Swine Flu And You

Swine flu viruses don't normally infect humans, but human infections with swine influenza do occur. Flu pandemics are among the most frequently occurring pandemics in the world. Swine flu is a type A influenza virus and spreads from person to person by coughing and sneezing, and by coming into contact with infected areas (such as door handles, telephones, keyboards).

Pandemic flus -- like the 1918 flu and outbreaks in 1957 and 1968 -- often strike young, healthy people the hardest. Pandemic disease experts are preparing for a possible second wave of the swine flu. In contrast to the regular seasonal epidemics of influenza, these pandemics occur irregularly, with the 1918 Spanish flu the most serious pandemic in recent history. There have been about three influenza pandemics in each century for the last 300 years. Influenza pandemics occur when a new strain of the influenza virus is transmitted to humans from another animal species. Three influenza pandemics occurred in the 20th century and killed tens of millions of people, with each of these pandemics being caused by the appearance of a new strain of the virus in humans. When it first killed humans in Asia in the 1990s, a deadly avian strain of H5N1 posed a great risk for a new influenza pandemic; however, this virus did not mutate to spread easily between people.

Influenza pandemics must be taken very seriously because of their capacity to spread rapidly to every country in the world. Influenza is highly contagious, and it's one of the most dangerous types of common viral infection. Influenza, often referred to as simply the flu, is ultimately a viral infection.

Swine influenza viruses have the ability to bind both types of sialic acid receptors. Swine Influenza is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A H1N1 influenza virus. Swine flu can be fatal to those who are very young, old, and who have health issues.

H1N1 viruses that descended from the 1918 strain, as well as H3N2 viruses, have now been co-circulating worldwide for 29 years and show little evidence of extinction. H1N1 is simply the scientific name for a subtype of the type A swine influenza virus that is contagious and spreading from human to human. Read the latest on H1N1 flu and vaccine distribution from the October 9th CDC briefing. On 11, June 2009, this new strain of H1N1 influenza was declared to be a global pandemic (Stage 6) by the World Health Organization after evidence of spreading in the southern hemisphere. It's thought to be a mutation (reassortment) of four known strains of influenza A virus subtype H1N1: one endemic in humans, one endemic in birds, and two endemic in pigs (swine). Since 2009, most vaccine development efforts have been focused on the current pandemic influenza virus H1N1.

The United States and these international partners have led global efforts to encourage countries to heighten surveillance for outbreaks in poultry and significant numbers of deaths in migratory birds and to rapidly introduce containment measures. The occurrence, and to some extent the severity, of recurrent annual outbreaks, are driven by viral antigenic drift, with an antigenic variant virus emerging to become dominant approximately every 2 to 3 years. There were minor outbreaks around the world throughout 1918, but the real emergence didn't start until winter, when the disease broke out in force in Europe, then spread over large segments of the population in America, Europe and Africa.

In the United States alone, as many as 700,000 people are expected to die in as little as six months following the outbreak. Despite their best intentions, however, the world isn't ready for such a viral outbreak. If the outbreak dies out quickly and this turns out not to be the next global pandemic then we can be sure another strain will try to be at some point in the future.

These novel strains are unaffected by any immunity people may have to older strains of human influenza and can therefore spread extremely rapidly and infect very large numbers of people. Often, these new strains result from the spread of an existing flu virus to humans from other animal species. Each subtype virus has mutated into a variety of strains with differing pathogenic profiles; some pathogenic to one species but not others, some pathogenic to multiple species. Any one of them can combine with each other or with different variant genotypes within its own subtype creating new variants, any one of which could become a pandemic strain.

Deaths from H1N1 flu is frequently reported. Because statistics on pediatric flu deaths had not been collected previously, it is unknown if the 2003–2004 season witnessed a significant change in mortality patterns. The worrisome new virus — which combines genetic material from pigs, birds and humans in a way researchers have not seen before. The pandemic viruses of 1957 and 1968 were milder in comparison to the 1918 virus, and caused fewer deaths.

Tamiflu Facts: * the trade name for Tamiflu is oseltamivir phosphate, unlike other antiviral flu medications, such as Flumadine and Symmetrel, Tamiflu is effective against both type A and B strains of flu. Tamiflu helps to reduce your time with flu symptoms. Tamiflu doesn’t decrease mortality from flu but lessens the severity of symptoms. Tamiflu is not recommended for pregnant women.

Symptoms of avian influenza in humans have ranged from typical human influenza-like symptoms (e. Symptoms of this flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine are looking for healthy adults to test a new swine flu vaccine mixed with an ingredient that could boost people’s immune response. Modern medicine still can't cure the influenza virus, although it can treat the symptoms and often preserve life in cases that would have defeated the medical establishment of 1918. Additional studies are needed to demonstrate the effectiveness of these medicines. Modern medicine gives us no immunity from a pandemic flu. That means that one person might like alternative medicine, while another might not. I am still convinced that by using the most powerful natural anti-virals, people can still overcome the effects (not all the symptoms) of this dreaded flu virus.

Fight Back With Natures Most Powerful Anti-Virals

Now that the h1n1 virus (swine flu) has grabbed at my own family in different parts of the country, I'm coming out swinging!

I'm not going to take it anymore! And you shouldn't either.

According to the CDC, Influenza A H1N1 is a respiratory disease typically found in pigs that is caused by type A influenza viruses. While it's not typical for humans to contract Influenza A H1N1, human infections occasionally do happen.

It hasn't yet been determined how exactly the current strain of Influenza A H1N1 is spreading, but flu is normally spread through the air by droplets expelled from the mouth when an infected person talks, coughs or sneezes. These droplets often land on hands and adjacent surfaces. Following proper hygiene can help prevent the spread of the illness.

  • Wash your hands: Wash your hands throughout the day with soap and water for 20 seconds, making sure to scrub underneath the nails and the back of the hands.
  • Disinfect surfaces: Regularly disinfect the frequently-touched surfaces in your home with a disinfectant to prevent viruses from spreading from surfaces to people.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. And if you're sick, stay home to avoid spreading germs to those around you.

Alternative medications that are most likely to help us during a severe pandemic:

Garlic (allicin) – Very effective antiviral. Best if fresh (raw) and crushed. Must be consumed within 1 hour of crushing. Dosage is initially 2 to 3 cloves per day but later reduce until no body odor occurs.

Vitamin C – Boosts the immune system and is an antiviral by blocking the enzyme neuraminadase. Viruses need neuraminadase to reproduce. There are stories of people taking large amounts of Vitamin C (children) surviving the Spanish Flu. A study with 470 people, involved giving them 1000 mg hourly for 6 hours and then 1000 mg 3 times daily after reporting flu symptoms. Symptoms decreased by 85%.

Green Tea (possible Tamiflu/Relenza alternative) – Very effective antiviral and a powerful antioxidant. Also decreases the production of the cytokine (catechins) TNF-a. Inhibits neuraminidase. May have antiviral activity that is equal to other antivirals like Tamiflu.

St Johns Wort (Hypericum) – Another very effective antiviral. Also decreases the production of the cytokine IL-6. Hypericum is an extract from St John's Wort.

Vitamin E – Immune booster. Also decreases the production of the cytokine TNF-a. Very suitable for immune compromised people, especially the elderly. The effects are enhanced when taken with Vitamin C.

Apple Juice – Antiviral. Fresh apple juice including the pulp and skin has a greater antiviral activity than "heated commercial" apple juice.

Resveratrol – Antiviral. In addition to inhibiting neuraminidase, resveratrol also sends a message to cells to stop manufacturing viruses. A proven antiviral found naturally in red wine, mulberries, Japanese Knotwood root (richest source), raisins and red grapes.

Scuttellaria (Skullcap) – Antiviral. A herb used as a tea. It has no side effects and is also a mild tranquillizer. Research suggests neuraminidase, which is a substance needed by the H5N1 virus to reproduce, may be inhibited.

Cranberry Juice – Some research shows that it may be an antiviral, making viruses less able to invade or multiply.

Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) – Decreases the production of the cytokine TNF-a. Also boosts immune system. The number of white blood cells was significantly increased during treatment. Children and pregnant women should avoid. Has a potentially damaging effect on the DNA of proliferating cells. (cancers, fetuses, growing children)

Curcumin (Turmeric Spice) – Decreases the production of the cytokine TNF-a. This is the yellow compound in turmeric spice. Must be taken with food or gastritis or peptic ulcers may occur. Pregnant women and feeding mothers should avoid. The medicinal properties of curcurmin cannot be utilized when used alone due to rapid metabolism in the liver and intestinal wall. When combined with Piperine found in black pepper the absorption is increased with no adverse effects. Obtainable from health stores in tablets, liquid, capsules already combined with Piperine. Dosage is 500mg to 4000mg daily.

Astragalus Root (Astragali Radix) – Boosts immune system.

Tea Tree Steam Inhalation – Reduces the cytokine TNF-a. Add 2 drops of tea tree oil in a bowl of steaming water. Cover head with a towel and inhale for 5 to 10 minutes. Relieves congestion and fights infection.

There. Now I've given you the weapons to fight this nasty virus and WIN!

Go kill it and get well!
