A large number of people are deeply concerned about their health and well being. But when the skin is exposed to too much UV it can damage the skin cells’ DNA, leading to uncontrolled growth – the basis of cancer. As a simple rule, unless you have a disease or treatment that suppresses your immune system, sunshine is good for you in moderation, but always avoid getting sunburned. Here is a list of foods that one can consume for the entire month, it is absolutely general and for healthy individuals. There is is a GSTM1 gene. Those with normal GSTM1 genetic levels and who produce healthy enzymes made six times more IgE. Those with null or no GSTM1 genes, who did not have functioning enzyme system, produced 15 times more IgE. Children who develop autism are less efficient in removing mercury and lead from their bodies. They also function better off wheat and casein (diary) foods. Food allergies that are severe tend to have an immediate reaction. Food intolerances tend to have a longer term response that can take from 72 hours to a week. (Note: There are differences between food allergies and food intolerances; however, from a patient’s point of view, both types of reactions are uncomfortable). The main point Dr. Atkins makes is that nutrition is much safer than the use of prescription drugs. Drugs are considered to be disablers and in some instances, are needed. However, in most cases, it is more effective to use nutrients. When there has been a nutritional deficiency, higher therapeutic dosages are needed, to bring up the levels in the tissues. After the tissue levels have reached their optimum level taking weeks and months, the dosage can be reduced to a maintenance level. It generally takes some time for the body to reach the optimum level. The people with the highest intake of calcium (greater than 1,400 milligrams per day) were actually 27 percent less likely to develop calcium-containing plaques in their coronary arteries over the 10-year study, compared with the group with the lowest intake of calcium (less than 400 mg per day). Moreover, the people in the highest-intake group who achieved their high calcium intake without supplements were at an especially low risk of developing plaques, according to the study. Most people with heartburn have too little hydrochloric acid. Taking antiacids is not helpful. Low stomach acid leads to weight gain. Taking Prilosec will add to the person’s toxic burden. During the pandemic, home health aides have buttressed the U.S. health care system by keeping the most vulnerable patientsâ€”seniors, the disabled, the infirmâ€”out of hospitals. Yet even as they’ve put themselves at risk, this workforce of 2.3 millionâ€”of whom 9 in 10 are women, nearly two-thirds are minorities and almost one-third are foreign-bornâ€”has largely been overlooked.
