How to determine if your vitamins are natural or synthetic

I want you to have a way to determine whether your vitamins are natural or synthetic. The following list, will help you determine what you are paying for with your hard earned money.

Most Dangerous Things to Look for In a Multiple Vitamin and Mineral Supplements

*Synthetic vitamin A as Lemon Grass, Palmitate, Acetate or if source not given on the label.
*Synthetic Vitamin B-1 as Thiamin Mononitrate, Thiamin Hydrochloride
*Synthetic Vitamin B-2 as Riboflavin
*Synthetic Vitamin B-6 as Pyridoxine Hydrochloride,
*Synthetic PABA Aminobenzoic Acid
*Synthetic Folic Acid as Pteroylglutamic Acid
*Synthetic Biotin as d-Biotin
*Synthetic Choline as Choline Chloride & Choline Bitartrate
Here is an example of deception on a label Vitamin B-1 Thiamin Hydrochloride and Brewer’s Yeast, it’s Synthetic B-1 with a pinch of natural B-1 from Brewer’s Yeast. The health food store will play up the yeast when 99% of it is from Synthetic B-1

*Synthetic vitamin C as Ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate, sodium ascorbate
*Synthetic vitamin D as Irradiated Ergosteral (Yeast), Calciferol
*Synthetic vitamin E as “DL-Alpha tocopherol”
*Vitamin F Essential Fatty Acids, do not use Omega 6 and 9, only use Omega 3 is safe
*Synthetic vitamin K as Menadione

9 questions for the FDA

The Food and Drug Administration cannot guarantee the safety of the nation’s drug supply because it inspects few foreign drug manufacturers and the inspections it does carry out abroad are less rigorous than those performed in this country, witnesses told a Congressional subcommittee yesterday.
While foreign companies manufacture as much as 80 percent of all ingredients used by American drug makers, the drug agency’s record keeping is so poor that it cannot say which of those have not been inspected, according to the testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.
“More than nine years after we issued our last report on this topic, F.D.A.’s effectiveness in managing the foreign drug inspection program continues to be hindered by weaknesses in its data systems,” Marcia Crosse, director of health care for the Government Accountability Office, said in a statement to the committee.

1) Why does the FDA allow leukemia-causing chemicals to be added to hot dogs that are consumed by children? (Sodium nitrite)

2) Why does the FDA allows nerve-damaging monosodium glutamate chemicals (and derivatives) to be used in baby food?

3) Why does the Girl Scouts continue to make its famous cookies with partially-hydrogenated oils known to contribute to essential fatty acid deficiencies in infants?

4) Why is aspartame still allowed in the food supply at all? (An excotitoxin)

5) Why is mercury still tolerated in American dental work (and, in fact, still pushed by the American Dental Association!) when mercury ingestion is so dangerous to human health?

6) Why do vaccination policies still allow the mass injection of babies with methyl mercury, which has been clearly linked to autism and autoimmune disorders?

7) Why are extremely toxic, cancer-causing chemicals openly allowed to be used in skin care products, perfumes and personal care formulas sold throughout America?

8) Why are popular laundry products still allowed to be sold in the U.S. when they contain numerous cancer-causing chemicals that get embedded in the fibers of clothing and are easily absorbed through the skin?

9) Why do U.S. health authorities not merely tolerate, but actually encourage the mass drugging of schoolchildren with amphetamine drugs? (Ritalin, Adderall, etc.)

100% organic poison ivy in a salad would be bad

Not all herbs or beneficial an example would be poisonous mushroom, nightshade plants, and poison ivy.

Don't fall for the idea that if it's natural and it's an herb that is good for you.
Here's a list of several herbs that are toxic to the liver, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from normal controls identified and separated from other cells of the blood by centrifugation and toxic in the cytokine p450 assay.

List of herbs and supplements I do not recommend except for short periods of time and if they have other beneficial value in a specific area that someone needs support in
Angelica, Bayberry, Bilberry, Birch, Blue cohosh, Boneset, Bachu, Colloidal Minerals, Colloidal Silver, Coltsfoot, Comfrey, Feverfew, Fo-ti, Gotu-Kola, Horseradish, Juniper, Kava Kava, Licorice, Longspur, Mistletoe, Mullen, Nettle, Poakweed, Seneca, Una de gata (Cat's Claw)

Carcinogens Found in "Organic" Personal Care Products

Carcinogens Found in "Organic" Personal Care Products
A new study commissioned by the Organic Consumers Association (OCA)
found that many leading "natural" and "organic" brand shampoos, body
washes, and lotions contain the carcinogenic contaminant 1,4-Dioxane.

1,4-Dioxane is considered a chemical "known to the State of California
to cause cancer." It is a byproduct of the cancer-causing petrochemical
Ethylene Oxide, which is used as part of a short-cut process called
Ethoxylation, which makes harsh ingredients milder.
1,4-Dioxane is also suspected of being a kidney toxicant, neurotoxicant
and respiratory toxicant, among others, according to the California EPA.
It is also a leading groundwater contaminant.
Some of the leading organic and natural brands found to contain
1,4-Dioxane include:
* JASON Pure Natural & Organics
* Giovanni Organic Cosmetics
* Kiss My Face
* Nature's Gate Organics
To avoid 1,4-dioxane, OCA recommends reading ingredient labels and
avoiding products with indications of ethoxylation, which include:
"myreth," "oleth," "laureth," "ceteareth," any other "eth," "PEG,"
"polyethylene," "polyethylene glycol," "polyoxyethylene," or "oxynol,"
in ingredient names.

Price vs. Cost

"There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey."
—John Ruskin, (1819 – 1900)

"It is unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."
—John Ruskin, (1819 – 1900)

Sick Employees Cost Businesses $60 Billion a Year

Sick Employees Cost Businesses $60 Billion a Year


CHICAGO - Headaches, back pain, arthritis and other muscle and joint pain cost the nation's employers more than $60 billion a year in lost productivity, a study has found.

Most of those costs are from sub-par job performance as a result of the pain rather than absenteeism, according to the study, based on a telephone survey of 28,902 workers in a wide variety of blue-collar and white-collar professions.

The study focuses on some of the most common pain conditions that affect both men and women. It doesn't include some common conditions such as dental pain and menstrual pain.

Even so, the economic costs are enormous, said Dr. Catherine DeAngelis, editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The study appears in Wednesday's JAMA, a theme issue featuring pain-related research.
