Bayer/Monsanto’s Horrors – Part 3

When I was a kid, if I were told that I’d be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would’ve thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30’s.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a “plastic” community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, ” let’s become vegetarians”. I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, “okay”! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, “The Little Kitchen”.

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I’ll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to “The Little Kitchen”. Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, “Let’s make a deal. You do our tax return and we’ll feed you as well”. So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, “Hawaii”. Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called,” Mr. Natural’s”. I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at “Mr. Natural’s.” To make a long story short, that’s exactly what happened.

So, I’m working at “Mr. Natural’s” and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle – it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka’anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn’t really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that’s exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I’m asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn’t thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, “You expected anything less”? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, ‘enchilada’s at “Natural’s” tonight’. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That’s when they found out I was an accountant and “Down to Earth” was born. “Down to Earth” became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD’s that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii’s premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. She said,” If you want to be with me you’ve got to stop working on naked women”. So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a “chicken” or “egg” or “fish” or “pig” or “cow” was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.

Corona Virus-Research the “experts” know but won’t tell you that could save your life

The fear is palpable. The Corona virus has divided and paralyzed the entire world. This has been such a sad and troubling realization to me. Despite the confusion and inconsistencies of the so-called “experts”—people continue to follow their every word. People have no faith in the innate, God given intelligent design of the human body that knows perfectly and exactly how to fight off disease.  And yes—this includes corona. Corona viruses are not new—just our perception of them.

Who will give you permission to feel safe again? Your governor? The President? The CDC? Dr. Fauci? People who are most susceptible to this virus are the ones with comorbidities. This isn’t new. Viruses have been around longer than humans. On any given day—you harbor 380 trillion viruses; far more than your 6 trillion human cells.

Sadly, everything new is well forgotten old.

Fear is what motivated me to become a naturopath. I saw the absolute terror that the diagnosis of cancer can do to a person.  It did this to my husband. In 2001, he was told the treatment for his salivary gland cancer required surgery to remove his cheek, sew on a patch of skin from his back, sew his eye partially shut, and possibly go through radiation. I didn’t like that option. I had left that world behind long before. This journey is detailed in my book.

It’s a big leap of faith to trust anything outside the “norm” of western medicine. They have purposely indoctrinated us to believe that we are helpless victims of disease. This disempowers us. The fact is–we are overweight, and over medicated but hey it isn’t our fault–we just have bad genes. Thanks to our unhealthy lifestyles and reliance on the medical system to “fix” us, the US is ranked dead last in the world in terms of health outcomes. These are the people you trust to tell you when you’ll be safe? They can’t even save themselves.

Meanwhile McDonald’s is giving away free junk food to the first 100 people to get tested for Covid. Such irony. Get junk food and get tested!  While we remain isolated, sedentary and afraid, the junk food industry and the pharmaceutical companies make billions for their investors. 

Hook up the oxygen tank, grab the hover round, and let’s go snag a free Big Mac and get micro chipped!  Don’t forget to wear your mask!  We must be socially responsible!

It wasn’t until many years after my husband’s cancer that I learned that chemotherapy originated from a secret stash of mustard gas from a blown up WWII ship. In a “rush” to come up with a cure for cancer—Western medicine promoted an agent as a cancer treatment that destroyed human DNA and was designed to “kill our enemies.” Early chemotherapy treatment killed more people than it saved.   Never take my word in place of your own research. This information is right there on the American Cancer Society Website.

But I saw this first hand while working on an oncology floor in a hospital in the late1970’s. First hand knowledge from experience can’t be sanitized or erased.

The same “rush” to develop a treatment occurred with the AIDS epidemic. I was working as an RN at a VA Hospital. We were trained by “expert” MD’s on how the “acquired immune deficiency syndrome” affected the body and how to protect ourselves from AIDS. We were told at the time that the virus originated from a gay airline steward having sex with a monkey. We were told it was a “blood to blood” transmission disease that mostly affected gay men and IV drug users who shared needles. We even got these cool pamphlets with “Mr. Condom” on the front. Condoms were made available in public restrooms and sterile needles were given away at free clinics.

We later learned that there was no such single causative viral agent as AIDS.  It couldn’t/still can’t be cultured and does not meet the six laws of virology or Koch’s Postulates. Instead, the causes of HIV were overuse of toxic legally prescribed drugs like the failed cancer drug AZT –as well as illicit nitrite inhalant drugs (poppers) that enhance sexual performance. These drugs, combined with having multiple sexual partners, sharing needles, and contracting repeated venereal diseases–caused immune deficiency. The people who died from AIDS were the people whose lifestyle toxified their blood and destroyed their immune system. We’ve been hearing a lot about “comorbidity factors” these days.

In his book, “Inventing the AIDS virus, Dr. Peter Duesberg presents a massive amount of documentation showing that the CDC needed an epidemic to justify its continued existence, and by playing on the public fear surrounding HIV–ensured increased funding and power to come up with a vaccine. Those government safety organizations with three letters (CDC, NIH, etc.) had tried to push cancer as a virus so they could develop a vaccine for it. Vaccines get billions of dollars in funding.  Cancer isn’t a virus. Dr. Duesberg believed that the pharmaceutical companies cashed in on the epidemic by bringing back the highly toxic cancer drug AZT, as well as DDI and DDC—which destroyed the immune system and, as is often the case—actually caused the AIDS like symptoms.   Despite the fact that Dr. Fauci secured massive funding for these drugs to fight HIV —no vaccine is available.  In fact Fauci has held his job through six Presidential administrations–every epidemic since Reagan; and still there are no vaccines for AIDS, Ebola, SARS, or Zika.  The AIDS budget?  Seven billion dollars $$$.  

What do we currently know about Covid-19? What are the comorbidity or contributing factors to be aware of? Could your lifestyle choices put you more at risk than my choice not to wear a mask? Here are a couple clues. Do you have COPD? Do you take Statin drugs? Do you take ACE inhibitor drugs for blood pressure?  Did you get a flu shot last year? Based solely on those four cofactors alone—millions of Americans are sitting ducks.

We know that this virus, as well as the common cold and the more severe versions of it (SARS, MERS) bind to a receptor in the lung called ACE 2. Once the virus enters the body, it begins a rapid response process of replication, which causes massive endothelial cell membrane deterioration. Endothelial cells line your blood vessels. The blood can’t get into the pulmonary vein and into the tiny pulmonary capillaries to dump carbon dioxide and pick up oxygen and return back to the blood. The blood is coagulating and sticking together forming clots. When ACE 2 reduction or loss occurs, general inflammation in the body increases and vascular walls become more permeable—resulting in edema, leaking blood vessels and diminished lung function. This results in the symptoms of dry cough, fever, and inflammatory conditions due to oxygen depravation.

Ventilators are needed when oxygen saturation is low. But in order for a vent to work –blood vessels and lung alveoli must be intact. In the case of Covid—the integrity of the blood vessels is compromised and the inflammation causes excess fluid in the alveoli. You can’t push gas past fluid or the pressure will blow apart the fragile tissue of the alveoli.  Ventilators are not a good choice when the integrity of the lungs is compromised. You destroy the lungs and the person will most likely die. Ask any nurse anesthetist.  It’s the law of physics.

Imagine the terror of dying alone of oxygen depravation (hypoxia) and carbon dioxide build up. It’s very similar to High Altitude Sickness.

If you look at comorbidities that people are dying from, and their relationship to the ACE 2 receptor—it all makes sense at the cellular level. COPD is the only lung condition that puts you at increased risk of dying from COVID. COPD has very high ACE 2 expression, which means lots of channels in. All the other factors are vascular in nature, but only if you add two drugs: Statins and ACE 2 inhibitors.

Statin drugs block a very important enzyme called CoQ10. CoQ10 is a fatty molecule found in all cell membranes. It is responsible for ATP (energy) production and also functions as an antioxidant in cell membranes. When statins block CoQ10, all the cell membranes increase ACE 2 receptors. When you add an ACE 2 inhibitor like Lisinopril or Losartan—it also up-regulates ACE 2 receptors which give the virus more cellular doorways to gain entry.  The leading number one drug recommendation from western medicine if you have heart disease, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease is an ACE inhibitor.

So when these two drugs (statins and ACE inhibitors) increase ACE 2 receptors in the lungs—you change the balance of their reactivity to their environment. Many people develop a side effect of ACE inhibitors, which is a dry cough. So if they develop a dry cough–they are put on an ARB (Angiotensin receptor blocker) which –wait for it—increases ACE 2 receptors. Ace 2 inhibitors, statin drugs and ARB’s are now seen as a major risk factor in death from COVID. If you KNOW that this is the case, why not take your patient off statins and switch to a different blood pressure medication. Calcium channel blocker perhaps? How many people in the US take statin drugs?  40 million. How many take ACE inhibitors? Lisinopril alone in 2017: 104,779,319

So, if you truly had a medical system that cared—and they knew that this many people were prescribed meds that are putting them at risk of dying from COVID —why wouldn’t they change your meds? Teach you about healthy lifestyle choices?  If they would have done that alone—from the beginning (because they knew this years ago) imagine the potential deaths they could have prevented.

And they did know; “they” being the CDC and NIH—they’ve known for a long time that these drugs bind to and increase ACE 2 receptors because this knowledge is based upon research of the common cold, SARS and MERS. They also know that if you get a flu shot—your risk of getting corona and six other common respiratory viruses goes up the following year. The “experts” knew right from the beginning that this virus was not going to be a massively fatal event unless we mismanaged it. And they DID mismanage this. The mindset of physicians was that this is respiratory failure and we need to ventilate patients. This mindset was killing people. If you are in pathological coagulation, the ventilator will cause you to succumb to the disease because the problem is not the lung—it is the toxic blood. Hydroxycloroqine works because it raises the pH of the blood, which then provides more nascent oxygen, which in turn, breaks up the coagulation.  

We’ll have one more season of Corona in the environment. It takes two years for these viruses to exit—so next summer it will be gone. Will you take the time to get your lifestyle in order now or will you chose to get your Big Mac, untested vaccine, and microchip later?

My purpose is always, always to empower you to seek health beyond danger. Please do your research. The choice is yours.
