Sunscreen Oxybenzone Melanoma Statins Your Brain Antioxidants Meat Cancer

Remember anything you do inside your body in excess is likely harmful. That is why I never believed all the myths about antioxidants increasing our lifespans when used in excess. Monkey studies show that supplements, except for vitamin D3, does not improve the health or life of these closely related mammals at the Oregon and Wisconsin Primate study research labs.

We need low density lipoproteins to build cell walls and replace neurons in our brain and likely needed for other brain chemicals inhibited by Statins. Even vitamin D3 produced from sun is based on cholesterol! I am sure many are suffering from dementia from statins, but most do not notice in the Republican Stupidity Century. Creativity has gone down twenty percent according to scientists appearing on Charlie Rose.

Excess consumption of all sugars, but especially the widely used high fructose corn syrup in almost all our prepared foods to enhance the flavor of tasteless genetically modified corn and soybeans made in depleted soils. These same type of products are used to feed cows, cattle, pigs, and chickens which are also fed cow waste products. Sugars also accelerates aging by a crosslinking process which also is the same process that alcohol and all sugars have in the cirrhosis of the liver. Alcohol is really a sugar product and acts in a similar manner.

Alcohol can also help our health by reducing the stress encountered in our competitive and frustrating lives which does not reward accomplishments except at the top. Stress produces cortisone type products which is not good for our health in excess.

Although rarely discussed, cows fed milk enhancing hormones caused cows to always be hungry so they were even fed cardboard! Because this type of milk has a hormone similar to growth hormone in mother's baby milk, it may have caused an increase in breast cancer in adults. Now Monsanto is trying to get the FDA to approve GMO breast milk!

Doctor Oz reported on a new film made in China where they looked at Chinese who rarely get cancer because they eat a vegetarian diet. What they found is that meat, chicken, and fish protein caused cancer in people to grow and when eliminated the cancer retreated. The current treatment for cancer is to get as much protein as possible into our cancer patients!

This explains why a physician at the University of Pennsylvania had terminal prostate cancer with cancer already spread to his bones and brain survived by going on a diet avoiding proteins from meat, chicken, and fish. He was dying according to his doctors. One day he got a ride from a young man who told him about a Japanese Diet called Macrobiotics run by a Japanese who the doctor spoke to. He was ordered to stop all proteins from non-vegetable sources. He had trouble eating the food he cooked, so he had volunteers from the Macrobiotic institute cook for him.

His prostate cancer started to recede fairly quickly and in about 3 months he was pain free and in one year they could detect no cancer. Three years later I read his book which was quite convincing, so I stopped eating big steaks. This was 20-25 years ago. I have been almost completely vegetarian except for dairy products the last seven years which really improved my health.

The Dr. Oz film makers said even dairy is bad for us! I drink Costco 1 percent organic milk to keep my uric acid level down which increases my blood pressure and inflames my blood vessels which can increase heart disease due to plaque deposition!

I need to examine how they did their work to see if the effects are real. It is really hard to get the real truth from people in such studies. They tell the researchers what they want to hear often about their diet. It is hard to do a double or triple blind study. Many times other factors may invalidate their results. However, based on my own experience, it sounds reasonable.

Dr. Oz got a group from the audience who tried a vegetarian diet. Some quit the first day and only a few lasted one week. One woman seemed to like the taste lost weight for the first time without being hungry. First step to weight loss. Change your diet, but never go hungry.

My philosophy is that meals are increasingly becoming one of the few sources of pleasure in our corrupt society and people so like most people, when my life depended on it, I changed. I now really enjoy the taste of organic vegetables which are not grown in depleted soil.
I could not watch the show on the Corrupt Popes on Showtime even though it is well done because they were the original Mafia, but without moral restraints. I have not watched one Godfather or related movies.

Sunscreen Oxybenzone

Oxybenzone or benzophenone can block the longer wavelength UVA so even though it has been in sunscreens for a long time, it has been given permission to claim UVA protection. However, it does not protect the lower more powerful UVA skin penetrating radiation from the sun. It has long been thought to cause cancer and only recently have the establishment start to make the case for it.
Similar sounding names such as Avobenzone are apparently safe.

But as I said before the safety issues in many sunscreens are actually not known for long-term effects such as with the newer nano (ultra-microscopic) particles of titanium oxide TiO2 and Zinc Oxide. So when you use the spray on you face, put it on your hands then apply to your face. Breathing when spraying is hazardous and preferably done outdoors.

I have a friend who lives in Miami that had cataracts in both eyes. I was fairly sure that the plastic used in contact lens for a long time does not have good UVA protection compared to polycarbonate used in plastic lens for regular glasses.

If you drive without sunscreen or sunscreens without UVA protection, glass is transparent to UVA and American drivers who drive on the left get melanoma on the left side of the body while Europeans get it on the right. You get tans from UVA even on cloudy days in the summer. The water in clouds absorbs UVB and infrared rays from the sun so we feel cooler.

For white skin in summer high sun, you make 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 per minute. This happens in the summer in Sweden. Dark skin people take 6 minutes to make the same amount. So if we make as much as ten thousand IU of vitamin D3 in ten minutes, why did God or mother nature evolution do this if we did not need lots of vitamin D3?

Dark Somalis in Sweden and Minnesota have a high rate of Autism. Babies from affluent and wealthy families also have a high rate of Autism. Young women from affluent and wealthy families also have a high rate of melanoma too. Make you own decision on whether vitamin D3 is necessary or not.

Do you believe some Dermatologists connected with Big Pharma or do you believe the scientists who are not connected with Big Pharma who make sunscreens? If I knew that UVA caused melanoma in the 1980s, why have all the compromised experts said it does not? Why is Big Pharma so concerned about vitamin D3? It will eliminate the huge osteoporosis business with bone making drugs which I am sure they know will result in the fracture of the spine, hip, or femur because no bone is replaced. It stops bone replacement! It just keeps adding bone! So any defects in our bones is not fixed from all the stresses our bones naturally encounter in daily activities.

Since we are all highly concerned about our looks, using sunscreen with UVB and UVA protection for you face, ears, and neck and beautiful or masculine hats are wise. Although not usually recommended, hands reflect age so why not use it there too. Expose the other parts of your body as much as you can without burn to get enough vitamin D3 from the sun and supplement it with vitamin D3 pills which are now available up to 5,000 IU per pill.

My Springfield, OR Peace Health hospital in its newspaper ads put 45 nanograms/ml as the appropriate level in our blood. That level helps prevent cancer in senior according to a recent study done by the University of California, San Diego on several thousand seniors in Texas. Even there most were deficient in 25 hydroxy vitamin D metabolite. Seniors cannot make as much in the sun, possibly because they are taking statins. Only those in the sun during the day while working had adequate levels to prevent cancer.

As I told a close friend years ago Statins which slow cholesterol formation in the liver which are needed for both your body and your brain, it is best to keep it low dose and use diet to lower your cholesterol levels. The HDL/Triglyceride ratio is a better estimate of your heart and brain health. Triglycerides from sugar, especially high fructose Corn Syrup in all prepared foods. The triglycerides give us low density lipoproteins and the very deadly very low density lipoproteins. Unlike the experts, I have concluded that both early and late onset Alzheimer's is due the same forces causing heart disease. Recent studies seem to start to agree with what I think.

I plan to write about how a small group of ideological famous nuclear physicists who muddied up the Climate Change fact by causing doubt. Most Americans do not know that science does not give us God given power over the truth. All scientists can do is with the evidence available, this is what we think. Science is not absolute, but very useful. Proof is never absolute. That is why scientists tend to talk in a wishy washy manner while the doubters such as Lundberg talk with confidence. His book makes comments that come from the opinion pages and not science.

Remember whenever anyone talks very well such as good salespersons, I put up my skeptic antenna even with Harvard scientists. There is no correlation with gift of gab and believability. The latter contradicted the Minnesota study about Oats lowering cholesterol. The Minnesota study was done much better so I agreed with it. The Harvard study was later retracted. Yes, crooks reside at Harvard too! The financial crisis heavily involved economists at Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Chicago. They largely refused to answer questions by the producer of the documentary such as Feldstein at Harvard. Inside Job! It is a marvelous film you can get at Netflix.

Even the Newton gravity theory and mathematics helped a lot. His theory about the movement of the planets, however, was flawed. Einstein came along centuries later and proved that he was wrong! Without Einstein we could not have explored space.

These corporate/military scientists were also involved in mudding up and created doubt about the toxicity of tobacco.

Even though I have talked about this a number of times, your responses indicate that most of you do not understand how science works. I will try to clear that up in the near future.

I tend to be too verbose so you good writers out there are welcome to offer me suggestions on how i could improve my communication skills. As a scientist I had to be verbose to cover all angles which I know is too much for almost all of you.

Just like what these same guys did to kill millions of Americans and people around the world when they stopped the regulation of tobacco for decades, they are now doing the same to our country and states which will experience unpredictable increasing floods, violent storms, snow, and droughts. Rare storms such as tornadoes are becoming much more common as we saw in the tragic deaths in Alabama. Instead of flying overhead only that Bush did after Katrina, President Obama showed his humanity by going and talking and hugging Alabamans who lost everything and gave them hope even though they did not vote for him.

If any of you have studied climate models, you would know the earth is one system and even very small changes in ocean temperature will greatly change the jet streams, currents, and moisture in the air because so much of earth is made up of ocean waters. So the oceans in Southeast Asia gave our East Coast warmer waters which sucked in the Arctic cold winds and dropped rain and snow. There were a number of explanations, but I found this one the most accurate unlike some of the reports in the opinion page of the New York Times.

For example, when the currents are warm adjacent to the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador, their is drought because of the wind patterns and when the currents are cool, sea life become abundant again, and there is plenty of rain. That is why there is a huge variation in the the population of small beak birds verses long beak ones. One thrives in raining seasons when vegetation and food is greatly available and the other when food is scarce. You can guess which.

How does consensus come about in science. Naomi Oreskes, University of California, San Diego, Provost, Ph.D. Geology, Professor History of Science.

The book catalog explains:

The U.S. scientific community has long led the world in research on such areas as public health, environmental science, and issues affecting quality of life. Our scientists have produced landmark studies on the dangers of DDT, tobacco smoke, acid rain, and global warming. But at the same time, a small yet potent subset of this community leads the world in vehement denial of these dangers.

Merchants of Doubt tells the story of how a loose-knit group of high-level scientists and scientific advisers, with deep connections in politics and industry, ran effective campaigns to mislead the public and deny well-established scientific knowledge over four decades. Remarkably, the same individuals surface repeatedly—some of the same figures who have claimed that the science of global warming is “not settled” denied the truth of studies linking smoking to lung cancer, coal smoke to acid rain, and CFCs to the ozone hole. “Doubt is our product,” wrote one tobacco executive. These “experts” supplied it. ...

A Closer Look at UV-Blocking Contact Lenses

Clinicians discuss the different levels of UV protection, the need to create demand for UV-blocking lenses and how to identify the best candidates.

Dr. Cohen: Because doctors commonly prescribe eyeglasses that have built-in ultraviolet (UV) light protection, one would think they'd do the same when it comes to contact lenses. Why is this not the case?


Dr. Nichols: Most ophthalmic and optical materials used for eyeglasses offer significant protection against UV radiation. CR39 has a cut-off at 350 nanometers, completely protecting against UVB and, to some extent, UVA rays.1 Polycarbonate completely protects the patient from all UV radiation, regardless of whether a tint is used. Contact lenses are different. Some offer little to no UV-radiation protection, while others provide adequate additional protection as a supplement/compliment to sunglasses. Contact lenses that offer protection are labeled as Class 1 and Class 2. The different classes indicate the level of UV protection. However, only three lenses are Class 1 (ACUVUE® OASYS™, ACUVUE® ADVANCE™ and ACUVUE®ADVANCE™ for ASTIGMATISM), and only a handful of others are Class 2. Class 1 lenses block 96% of UVA rays and 100% of UVB rays. Class 2 lenses block 70% of UVA and 95% of UVB radiation. ...
