An Urgent Letter for all of you that would like to see more NATURAL HEALTH CARE and HEALTH FREEDOM in our Country:

Our United States Constitution states that every American has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If our constitution is what this country still stands for, then these rights should apply to your rights and freedoms to be healthy. There is no joy when you or your loved ones are sick with a chronic disabling health problem such as cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and many more health problems which are on the rise. You probably know someone with one of these illnesses, or maybe even several people. It’s becoming commonplace to have immediate family members suffering with these afflictions. The burden of having an illness such as this, or an ill family member can be devastating. Hopes and dreams for the future get shattered due to attention consumed by health issues. Something has gone terribly wrong…..

And it’s not your fault!

We are flooded with commercials on television to use various drugs to treat a multitude of illnesses. You may be overwhelmed with family responsibilities and work. Many people are worried about the economic crunch and have their lost jobs and homes. The constant threat of living in a toxic world is only occasionally mentioned on TV news or in the newspapers.

Very little information is being distributed to the public on protecting health, and the health of your family. Big Pharma (the drug companies) don’t want to address it because their agenda is to sell drugs to suppress symptoms. The big corporations that have mostly caused our toxic world don’t want to discuss it because they are at fault, and could risk fines, penalties, and loss of licensing for neglecting health risks in pursuit of profits.

Our government doesn’t want to face this issue because the pockets of our elected officials are lined with contributions from lobbyists who represent the drug companies, the chemical companies, the oil companies and similar interests.

So Who CAN Make a Difference?

Essentially it’s up to you and me to fend for ourselves and our families if good health is to be ours. Otherwise the odds are we’ll become just another statistic among the long lists of illness and diseases sufferers. At this moment, 1 out of every 2 men will get cancer, and 1 out of every 3 women will get cancer. The odds of suffering a heart attack are 1 out of 2! And if that’s not enough……the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States is conventional medicine.

Why am I so angry?

The suppression of factual information on the powerful natural solutions for better health is a deliberate intentional cover-up! Medical journals will not publish the vast amount of research proving how well nutritional therapies work…….because of their alliances with drug companies. MD’s are afraid to prescribe nutritional supplements due to lack of knowledge and peer-pressure within the medical community to prescribe drug therapy only.

What does this mean for you? Safer options for healing stay hidden from the masses and only those of you who purposely seek smarter alternatives to better health can actually find the products, practitioners and services you need to protect your health. More and more is being done to suppress natural healthy solutions by our government and drug companies.

Imagine Feeling Great….. Naturally!

What if you could feel energetic, strong, clear, and calm and focused every day? Imagine your entire extended family all feeling great, free of pain and symptoms, without complaints about their health or stories of frustrations with doctors and hospitals. Family gatherings would be more fun-filled and joyful. Children could spend more quality time with their older relatives. Life would hold more promise for brighter days ahead, with plans and dreams being easier to become your reality.

Imagine if our government encouraged people to seek out non-drug solutions for their health problems….and suggested drugs and surgery only as a last resort. What if you could count on fast food restaurants to serve safe chemical-free food, without MSG, toxic additives and unhealthy fats?

Think how safe you would feel knowing whatever store, office, school or home you entered had not been sprayed recently with pesticides….because they were illegal for use in public places, in the same way cigarette smoking in public buildings was banned.

Think for a moment how you’d feel if most of the food in your local grocery was organic, fresh food, and priced lower than the chemically-treated toxin-loaded fruits and vegetables…this could be the case if our government supported organic farmers they way they subsidize farms that use chemicals.

Visualize a world where people say, “No way!” to genetically-modified food (as they’ve done in many European countries) and “No way!” to farm animals being overloaded with growth hormones and antibiotics……Cleaner food, cleaner bodies, cleaner cities, states and countries.

We can create a healthier population, vibrant and focused on smart choices for feeling great and staying well. Every time you make a purchase, remember to consciously ask yourself if it’s helping you move toward health or away from health and a sustainable planet………by becoming more aware of the day-to-day choices we make, it’s easier to choose wellness and support the companies who provide us with what we need to stay safe, as you make wellness a priority.

Think of how much more time you’d have for enjoyment if time lost due to illness was minimized. Very few people who suffer with a health crisis actually planned to be ill….that’s why it’s crucial to focus on feeling well and taking care of your body’s imbalances before it’s too late. Ask anyone who’s been hospitalized–being well is much more fun than being sick. Good health offers you many more freedoms than living your life around symptoms of pain, disease, or limitations. We hope you will always enjoy freedom from pain and disease; and we want to help preserve and restore the health freedoms guaranteed to all of us in our constitution

US researchers find traces of toxic mercury in high-fructose corn syrup

• Mercury linked to learning disabilities and heart disease

• Study published in peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health

A swig of soda or bite of a candy bar might be sweet, but a new study suggests that food made with corn syrup also could be delivering tiny doses of toxic mercury.

For the first time, researchers say they have detected traces of the silvery metal in samples of high-fructose corn syrup, a widely used sweetener that has replaced sugar in many processed foods. The study was published yesterday in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health.
Eating high-mercury fish is the chief source of exposure for most people. The new study raises concerns about a previously unknown dietary source of mercury, which has been linked to learning disabilities in children and heart disease in adults.

The source of the metal appears to be caustic soda and hydrochloric acid, which manufacturers of corn syrup use to help convert corn kernels into the food additive.

A handful of plants across the US still make the soda and acid by mixing a briny solution in electrified vats of mercury. Some of the toxic metal ends up in the final product, according to industry documents cited in the study.

Corn syrup manufacturers insisted their products are mercury-free. But the study noted that at least one maker of caustic soda that has used the mercury-based technology listed the corn syrup industry as a client.

“This seems like an avoidable source of mercury that we didn’t know was out there,” said David Wallinga, one of the study’s co-authors and a researcher at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, a Minnesota-based advocacy group.

The researchers cautioned that their study was limited. Only 20 samples were analyzed; mercury was detected in nine.

Still, the impact of the findings could be significant. High-fructose corn syrup has become such a staple in processed foods that the average American consumes about 12 teaspoons of it daily, according to federal estimates. Teenagers and young children tend to eat more of it than adults.
There is no established safe dose for elemental mercury, the type discovered in corn syrup. But the US Environmental Protection Agency says an average-sized woman should limit her exposure to 5.5 micrograms a day of methylmercury, the kind found in fish.

If that same woman regularly ate corn syrup contaminated at the highest level detected in the study – 0.57 micrograms per gram – the researchers estimated that she could end up consuming an amount of mercury that is five times higher than the EPA’s safe dose.

One former EPA scientist who reviewed the paper said more study is needed to establish the risk, if any, posed by contaminated corn syrup. She urged the Food and Drug Administration to conduct a review of food made with the sweetener.

“For the most part, previous studies haven’t found mercury in foods other than fish,” said Kathryn Mahaffey, a former EPA scientist who co-wrote a landmark report to Congress on the perils of mercury contamination. “Is this an outlier or something we didn’t know about before?”

In response to a 2005 Chicago Tribune series about mercury hazards, then-senator Barack Obama introduced legislation that would force chlorine plants to phase out its use or shut down. One plant in Wisconsin later vowed to switch to a mercury-free process by this year, leaving four others – in Georgia, Ohio, Tennessee and West Virginia – that still use the older technology.

The new study’s lead author, Renee Dufault, began her research while investigating the Wisconsin plant for the FDA in the mid-2000s. But her results weren’t published until now, a year after she retired from the agency.

An FDA spokesman said he still was waiting for a response to the study. Industry representatives, meanwhile, said the study was outdated.

“It is important that Americans are provided accurate, science-based information,” Audrae Erickson, president of the Corn Refiners Association, said in a statement. “They should know that high-fructose corn syrup is safe.”

In another statement, the Chlorine Institute said: “It is conceivable that measurable mercury content can be found in high-fructose corn syrup regardless of how it is processed.”

SOURCE: Guardian.co.uk

And more coverage from the U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT:

Mercury in high fructose corn syrup affects many of the most popular foods in America, including yogurt, soda, candy, juice and jelly. Even a small amount of it can be seriously unhealthy.

“Mercury is toxic in all its forms,” said IATP’s David Wallinga, M.D., and a co-author in both studies. “Given how much high fructose corn syrup is consumed by children, it could be a significant additional source of mercury never before considered. We are calling for immediate changes by industry and the FDA to help stop this avoidable mercury contamination of the food supply.”

The Corn Refiners Association is disputing the results of the study, but a watchdog group’s study turned up similar results. More research is needed to determine exactly which foods are affected, but some of the foods tested were from the brands Hershey’s, Quaker, Hunt’s, Manwich, Smucker’s, Kraft, Nutri-Grain, and Yoplait. We’ve already read that high fructose corn syrup can contribute to obesity and diabetes. With this recent scare, will people take a turn away from processed foods to more natural eating habits? Or have processed foods become an irreplaceable part of the American diet?

Dr. Martin’s Comments:

Wait! There’s more to the story, also revealed in US NEWS & WORLD REPORT, “Reports have also come out that the FDA knew about traces of the toxic substances and sat on the information.” You may recall that the FDA is the government agency that we, as taxpayers, generously fund to assure our food is safe. This lack of accountability should infuriate every American……and where are those plants across America cooking up those “briny solutions in electrified vats of mercury”? What about the health of their employees? The neighborhood? And most importantly—what about the destruction of health of everyone who has unknowingly consumed these mercury-contaminated products for years?

I can’t imagine more convincing proof that the food industry has complete disregard for your health. Is it any wonder obesity, diabetes, heart disease, immune breakdown, nervous system disorders and more have reached epidemic proportions?

What’s The Moral of the Story?

Your health is under constant attack by hidden toxins in your food, water and air, causing faster aging, disease, and damage to your entire body, day in and day out……..and your government does not care enough to stop the madness!

Remind Yourself of this Important Truth Everyday

As you look at the food you’re eating, the household products and personal care products you use, (and have used in years past) you can easily see the connection between your toxic world and the mass breakdowns in health.

What Does This Mean to You?

Do you eat a perfect diet? Frankly, I’m puzzled how anyone could these days. The fact is, most of us do not eat perfectly pure foods and that’s why it’s crucial to have NUTRITION WELLNESS CENTER help you find out if dangerous poisons like mercury could be blocking you from feeling great. Defending against the toxic onslaught is taking the smart step to start feeling better now and to resist unnecessary illness and breakdowns in health.
