Healthy Food Lover's Newsletter, Issue #15 -- Say, "Hell No!" to GMOs
May 15, 2013
Hello Healthy Food Lovers,

Say, "Hell No!" to GMOs

The American people seem to have been picked as the Guinea Pigs for GMO foods. These foods were introduced into our food supply around the mid-90's.

I don't know about you, but I don't remember signing up for this one!

GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms and "Frankenstein" plants or animals can be created through the gene splicing techniques that merges DNA from different species to create these "foods".

If GMO foods were safe to consume, then why have a lot of countries either outright banned GMOs or placed a limit on these foods?

And why were these foods with almost no prior testing or consent by the American people, released into our food supply?

Well you are not going to like the answers to these questions - not one bit, but what's that saying........

"The Truth Shall Set You Free" - but first it's going to piss you off!

GMO Foods

The FDA does not require foods that are genetically modified to be labeled as GMO.

These are the Companies that Do Not want Genetically Modified Foods to be Labeled:

  • The "Big 6" Pesticide Makers - BASF, Bayer, Dow, Dupont, Monsanto, & Syngenta
  • Pepsi Cola and Sub-brands Frito Lay, Gatorade, Tropicana, and Quaker Oats
  • Coca Cola
  • Nestle
  • Conagra
  • General Mills
  • Kellogg
  • Hershey
  • J.M. Smucker
  • Hormel
  • Ocean Spray
  • Bimbo Bakeries

Basically, GMO foods will create an immune system response as your body will try to attack this type of "food" as it does not recognize it as being food.

After a while, your body will spin out of control and just be on "attack alert" all the time.

Also, GMO foods do not have "normal" properties and will lack the protective qualities that "real" food contains.

Several Animal Studies indicate that Serious Health Risks are Associated with GMO Foods:

  • Infertility
  • Accelerated Aging
  • Faulty Immune System
  • Insulin Regulation Problems
  • Damage to Major Organs
  • Damage to Intestinal Tract
  • Sudden Death

Agenda 21

GMO foods appear to play a big part in Agenda 21 and may be one of the main reasons it was created.

Agenda 21 is basically connected to the depopulation of the earth and the people who think they have the right to do so.

I heard about this agenda about a decade ago and it does seem to be in full swing right about NOW! They are weakening you primarily thru the food that you "decide" to put into your body, vaccinations, drugs, and environmental toxins.

How many people and even pets will have to suffer or lose their lives before this agenda is finally stopped?

The Future of Our Food - if we let it happen!

Buy Organic or Non-GMO

Shopping for "safe" food does require a bit of knowledge and can be quite confusing at times. It is important to understand what you should be looking for when you go grocery shopping.

"100% Organic" is the only label that requires a product to be completely GMO free. The US and Canadian governments do not allow food producers to label foods "100% Organic" if that food has been genetically modified or fed genetically modified feed.

"Certified Organic", "USDA Organic", and "Organic" means at least 95% of its content is GMO free and the remaining 5% is usually GMO free.

"Made with Organic" means that up to 70% of the ingredients or content is GMO free, but the remaining 30% may contain GMOs.

If you see organic mentioned once in the list of ingredients for let's say "Organic Spices" - then the rest of the ingredients could be GMO.

And if a food is labeled as "All Natural" it can still mean GMO as the FDA does not seem to consider these foods as being unnatural.

Buy Food Labeled "Non-GMO" or "GMO Free" and Recognize the Fruit & Vegetable Codes:

  • 4 digits = Conventional Food (which means pesticides, etc.)
  • 5 digits & Beginning with 8 = GMO Food (this labeling is optional)
  • 5 digits & Beginning with 9 = Organic Food

Also buy food labeled "100% Grass Fed" or "Pasture Fed and Pasture Finished" to avoid contaminated feed.

A lot of cattle in the US are grass fed, but spend the last portion of their lives in feedlots where they may be given genetically modified corn, soybeans, etc. because these foods increase the fat and marbling content of the meat.

And for animals that are not herbivores like pigs or poultry - look for meat that is "100% Organic" or "Organic".

So when in doubt, always buy "Organic" or "Non-GMO", but buyer beware.....

The USDA oversight of organic food has been somewhat lax since its inception and it can take as much as 3 years for a manufacturer to be forced to remove their label that they have been illegally using - which claims their food is organic.

So if you see Costco selling food that says "Organic" and it came from a questionable source like Pepsi, etc. - find a better source.

Also, this just in..........

The civil trial of Otting, Vonderplanitz v. Palmer, Stewart was reset again to begin May 28th. The court has been nothing but disruptive to the plaintiffs' cases and biased for the defendants'. Simply, it appears like another government tactic to disrupt our right to healthy food by protecting food-fraudsters who try to poison us with the same chemicals as the regular food industry while calling it organic.

This trial involves food-fraud claims against Sharon Palmer of Healthy Family Farms and James Stewart for supplying inorganic food as organic to Right To Choose Healthy Food's Rawesome club members.

Witnesses/members, media and court observers, please be patient. The court is constantly trying to sabotage us. We should be ready to attend and support Right To Choose Healthy Food members and Aajonus Vonderplanitz who has been fighting to protect people's rights to truly organic raw food for 42 years. We mean organic by our standards not FDA's and other pseudo "health" agencies who allow at least 15% industrial chemicals into organic food.

The Health Dangers of GMO Foods

How to Avoid GMOs

In a typical grocery store - "40 to 70%" of its food may be GMO or contain genetically modified ingredients.

Highest Risk GMO Foods:

  • Corn (High Fructose Corn Syrup, Tortilla Chips, etc.)
  • Soybeans (Soy Milk, Infant Formulas, Soy Oil, etc.)
  • Rapeseed (Canola Oil)
  • Cotton (Vegetable Oils, etc.)
  • Sugar Beets (Refined Sugar)
  • Animal Foods produced by GMO Feeds
  • Animals Injected with GM Hormones (rbGH, etc.)
  • Farmed Fish (Salmon, etc.)
  • Rice (Golden Rice)
  • Alfalfa (Animal Feed, etc.)
  • Papayas from Hawaii
  • Zucchini & Yellow Summer Squash
  • Safflower Oil

Always or Usually Derived from GMOs:

  • Vegetable Oils
  • Amino Acids
  • Aspirin
  • Vitamins
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C
  • Citric Acid
  • Caramel Color
  • Condensed Milk
  • Confectioner's Sugar
  • Corn Meal
  • Corn Starch
  • "Flavorings"
  • Aspartame
  • Nutrasweet
  • Lactic Acid
  • Dextrose
  • MSG
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Maltodextrin
  • Textured Vegetable Protein
  • Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
  • Sucrose
  • Glucose
  • Shoyu
  • Tofu
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Baking Powder
  • Lecithin
  • Baker's Yeast
  • Yeast Products
  • Malt Syrup
  • Conventional Honey

GMOs may make up as much as "80 to 90%" of the conventionally produced or processed foods in America. The sugars and oils used in these foods are usually GMO.

Double Whammy: High Fructose Corn Syrup uses the most dangerous type of mercury to extract sweetness from corn (most likely GMO corn) and you will find this syrup in conventional ketchup as well as most conventional baked goods.

By the way, Cane sugar is not GMO - GMO sugar is made from sugar beets and will be labeled as "sugar".

Sugar beets are nearly white in color (not red like the vegetable beet) and this sugar is harvested from the root of the plant. Sugar beets are one of the main sources of table sugar and other forms of refined sugar.

Look for "Organic Sugar" or "Cane Sugar" in baked goods to avoid GMO sugar.

Always buy food from local or smaller producers whenever possible, as the chances of GMOs usually shrinks along with the size of the food producer.

You can usually find healthy fruits and vegetables at farmer's markets, but make sure they are not using GMO seeds or spraying toxic herbicides, etc. on their food.

Of course, making your own meals and raising your own food will be two of the safest ways to avoid GMO foods and ingredients.

By the Way, GMO seeds even if grown organically - is still GMO!

So if you want to grow your own food with safe or heirloom seeds, do a search for "buying safe seeds". Also, two of the "best" natural fertilizers are chicken manure and compost.

GMO Clothing!

According to the USDA, 93% of all cotton planted in the United States is GMO.

This particular GMO crop uses an incredible amount of pesticides and about 25% of these pesticides will remain in the cotton. This cotton will be used to make your clothing, towels, bedsheets, and personal care products like tampons, etc.

And to top it off, cotton can be treated with additional chemicals like formaldehyde (that does not wash out) to make cotton wrinkle free.

Cottonseed oil is also made from cotton in the form of "vegetable oils" and the remaining hulls are used as animal feed - and then passed onto you.

So it looks like - "Organic" linen, clothing, and personal care products is the only way to go in order to avoid being poisoned - as your skin will more than likely absorb some of the toxins that come with GMO cotton.

Rapeseed Oil aka Canola Oil

Canola oil comes from the non-edible rapeseed plant which belongs to the mustard family.

Rapeseed oil was the source of the chemical Warfare Agent (Mustard Gas) used in World War 1. It was banned after blistering the lungs as well as the skins of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians.

Rapeseed oil has a long history of being used to produce oils for industrial purposes as it is too toxic for humans and other animals to consume.

However, both US and Canadian farmers are now growing this genetically engineered plant to create Canola Oil.

Rapeseed oil or Canola oil is now being connected to the mysterious Mad Cow's Disease.

It appears that cattle fed a mixture containing rapeseed oil starting suffering from this disease and when it was removed reports of "Mad Cow" started to disappear.

Food manufacturers are now using canola oil on thousands of processed foods all across America. You will even find this oil being used in "foods" found in your health food stores.

Be sure to read labels and if the label says, "may contain the following oils" which lists canola oil as one of the ingredients - you can almost bet your life (literally) that it contains Canola Oil as it is the cheapest oil to produce.

I would also be very concerned about the oil being used in your salad dressings or the oil being used to cook your food when your dining out - request olive oil (Organic Only!) or butter.

An if you are already stuck with a bottle of Canola Oil, I hear it makes a great insect repellent.

The Blood Type Theory - Debunked!?!

Apparently, there is suppose to only be one blood type among humans and that is blood type AB. Anything else may actually be a mutation due to a copper deficiency.

Most of our food contains copper antagonists, blood thinners, alkaline chemicals, and copper binders - so that any copper that may be present in our food supply will become negated!

So basically, people with blood type A and O (which have the thinnest and lowest blood volume) along with blood type B were born with a copper deficiency due to these copper depleting agents.

It appears that the real purpose of Genetically Modified Foods or GMOs is to further deplete this mineral from our bodies which will cause even more genetic DNA damage to our body structures, tissues, and blood.

Are they now going for a Blood Type F for "Frankenstein Foods"?

In 1996, the copper depletion rates significantly increased which coincides with the onslaught of GMO foods. They are "purposely" depriving and depleting us of copper - which must be acquired through our diet.

Blood types A and O are the alkaline blood types - with a propensity to carry a mineral balance toward the alkaline side.

With blood type O, the alkaline level is so high that even the normal A-protein can't be formed and therefore - is missing.

And individuals with blood type A may actually change over to blood type O if their pH has increased to the point that the A-protein disappears.

Blood type B is the acidic blood type - with a propensity toward acidic minerals.

Approximately 95% of the population who have blood types A, B, and O have iron poisoning to go along with a copper deficiency.

These blood types may be caused by excess iron which are dependent on the levels of iron deposits in your body (liver, spleen, brain, glands, bone marrow, kidneys, lungs, colon, heart, etc.).

Iron has accumulated due to iron facilitators and copper depletors. And to top it off the "Copper to Zinc Ratio" has been compromised (will go into more detail further down).

Also the Blood Types of A, B, and O are Missing the Normal Blood Clotting Proteins:

  • Type A is missing B proteins
  • Type B is missing A proteins
  • Type O is missing A and B proteins

Chemical, biological, and radiological poisons (radiation vibrates blood proteins which break off the loosely bound iron thus accelerating iron deposits) work together to generate toxic malformations of proteins.

These poisons along with a copper deficiency and iron poisoning being passed down thru the generations are responsible for the mutated blood types.

It also appears that the Rhesus Factor (D-Protein) is a probable malformed or variant protein resulting from insufficient copper levels.

Copper maintains normal blood viscosity - which can be found in blood type AB.

When you have normal blood viscosity - you will have optimal flow of your blood. Your blood is also able to get rid of toxic metals, chemicals, and any overload of minerals.

So if our food was untainted and we were not exposed to high amounts of poisons - we would not be copper deficient! We would all then live to the ripe old age of 120 years which is the life expectancy of blood type AB.

By the way, this is just a theory until it's proven otherwise.

The "Most Important" Mineral?

There probably isn't a more misunderstood mineral than copper. Sadly, this may have lead to what is now the nutritional downfall of mankind.

One of the most visible signs of a copper deficiency is a change in your hair color - most notably greying or lightening of your hair.

Copper is the third most abundant essential trace mineral in your body, after iron and zinc. And it may "soon" be discovered just how important copper really is to the prevention of many illnesses.

Copper Deficiency is Linked to:

  • Anemia
  • Arthritis
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Free Radical Damage
  • Inflammatory Diseases
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Allergies
  • Infertility
  • Candida Overgrowth
  • Aging (Grey Hair, Sagging Skin)
  • Weak Connective Tissue
  • Aneurisms
  • Varicose Veins
  • Defective Spinal Cords
  • High Cholesterol Levels
  • Heart Attacks
  • Leukemia
  • Kinky Hair Syndrome

Maintaining a steady level of copper in your body will depend upon the amount of copper ingested and the amount of copper excreted.

The RDA for copper is set at 2-3 milligrams for adults, but numerous studies have shown average copper intake is well below the recommended daily allowance.

Copper is a Key Component of Two of the Most Important Antioxidant Enzymes: - Copper-Zinc Superoxide Dismutase and Ceruloplasmin.

Ceruloplasmin: Most of the copper in your blood is turned into ceruloplasmin - which is the key transport protein responsible for carrying copper to tissues that need this mineral.

Ceruloplasmin also acts as one of the most important antioxidant enzymes - catalyzing the oxidation of minerals like iron.

The oxidation of iron by this antioxidant enzyme is necessary in order for iron to be bound to its transport protein or transferrin - which safely carries iron to your tissues.

Because ceruloplasmin is so vital for the utilization of iron, iron deficiency anemia may actually be a symptom of a copper deficiency.

Copper-Zinc Superoxide Dismutase (SOD): SOD or Superoxide Dismutase is a naturally occurring enzyme that protects the body against active oxygen free radicals .

There are 3 major families of SODs and Copper-Zinc Superoxide Dismutase is one of the most powerful. Both copper and zinc are necessary for this type of SOD and if copper or zinc is deficient - this particular SOD's activity decreases.

SODs play a crucial role in oxidative stress as SODs destroy oxygen generated free radicals. SODs are kind of like the first line of defense for your cells and also have powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

A decrease in antioxidant protection caused by a copper deficiency goes beyond a decrease in copper- dependent enzymes as it will induce a wide range of disturbances in the other enzyme systems as well.

A Sufficient Copper Level is Extremely Important for the Formation and Activity of Numerous Enzymes involved in:

  • Cancer Prevention
  • Energy Production
  • Antioxidant Protection
  • Pigmentation
  • Collagen & Elastin
  • Blood Clotting
  • Hemoglobin
  • Production of Neurotransmitters (Norepinephrine, Dopamine, etc.)
  • Bone Formation
  • Wound Healing
  • The Functioning of your Immune System
  • The Formation of your Heart, Liver, & Blood Vessels
  • Functioning of Glandular System
  • Estrogen Production

Research has shown that a copper deficiency induces an increase in intracellular and extracellular glutathione levels - one of the most powerful antioxidants.

So it appears that adequate copper is vital for the optimal functioning of many antioxidants (copper dependent or not) as a deficiency could deplete these systems.

Copper is essential to all living organisms and is a co-factor for hundreds of metalloenzymes which are enzymes that have a metal attached to their protein.

Copper functions as an enzyme co-factor by activating certain key enzymes required to strengthen your structural protein collagen which in turn strengthens your cartilage, tendons, bones, and blood vessels.

Copper also functions as a co-factor for a protein that helps maintain your lung tissue and helps to prevent the killer - Emphysema.

Copper is essential for insulating your nerve cells and is vital for the production of energy from fats, carbs, and protein.

Copper serves as a co-factor in the synthesis of important neurotransmitters involved in the production of adrenaline.

Copper is needed to be able to break down histamine which creates allergic reactions in your body.

Copper is your body's natural anti-candida agent and anyone with candida overgrowth - will have a copper imbalance.

That's why copper may be one of the most important minerals to have in your body and why copper is a "Target" for depletion.

Enzymes are Key!

Enzymes are made up of proteins and if any are missing or malformed due to a copper deficiency, etc. they do not activate and function at normal levels - hence the blood type fiasco.

Enzymes must maintain their correct shape to do their job or to be the key that unlocks all the magic that goes on in your body.

Enzymes are basically the proteins that control the speed of chemical reactions that go on inside of your body and because these enzymes are primarily made up of proteins they are easily affected by heat or pH.

So if enzymes are exposed to high heat (from pasteurization, boiling, etc.) or pH changes - they will change or alter their shape and will no longer be able to do their job.

Enzymes can also be altered from exposure to air, light, alcohol, medications/drugs, caffeine, cigarette smoke, pesticides, herbicides, fluoride, and heavy metals.

There are about 4,000 enzymes that have been identified in the human body. Although most people have only heard about the digestive enzymes which are the enzymes needed to help digest the food that you eat.

Low levels of these enzymes can lead to a nutritional deficiency, because even if you ingest food that contains nutrients like copper - it may not get absorbed unless a sufficient amount of digestive enzymes are present.

This of course, leads to undigested food reaching your lower intestines and a toxic colon.

We are able to make our own enzymes, but as we age or become too toxic - our ability to make enzymes which includes the digestive enzymes decreases.

However, enzymes exist in all raw and "correctly" fermented foods - that does include the animal foods which I believe are the real power houses as far as enzymes go.

Cooking or processing foods at a temperature higher than 118 degrees F will cause protein molecules to "denature" or alter in shape to the point where the food retains no enzymatic activity.

So a "High" stress diet, is a diet that includes too many cooked or processed foods that will require your body to come up with the necessary enzymes - that will over time deplete your reserves.

A good analogy would be the Federal Reserve Bank. If you keep on printing money with nothing to back that money or by stealing other people's money - eventually it backfires with a stock market crash, arrests, etc.

Turning Copper into Gold?

Copper occupies the same family on the periodic table as silver and gold.

Their similarity in electron structure makes them similar in many ways. Copper, silver, and gold all have high thermal as well as electrical conductivities. And all 3 are malleable.

Copper is an excellent energy conductor which sends and amplifies thoughts, healing, and energy. Copper is also an excellent assistant for increasing your ability to express and accept your true feelings.

Copper is also great for dispensing "negative" energy and has been found to be beneficial for a disorder called "streetlight phenomenon" which is the ability to turn off a streetlight by just walking under it - I've actually experienced this one.

Copper is one of humanity's first metals - shows up in Sumerian and Egyptian metallurgy. Many of the underground copper pipes used to convey water in Egypt nearly 5000 years ago are still in existence.

This is one way to increase copper in your water supply and also funky bacteria can't grow in copper pipes.

The Statue of Liberty is the largest copper statue in the world and a Symbol of Freedom - coincidence? There is no such a thing as a coincidence!

Copper is often referred to as a psychic or intuitive element and is very important especially to women - who need more of this nutrient. Copper is very involved with restoring estrogen levels in a woman's body.

Could this be why women are known for being more intuitive than men?

Children are usually born with a good supply of copper, but by the age of 4 may lose much of their supply and therefore some of their intuition. Now that I think about it - that is when I lost one of my powers - hmmmm.

By some alchemical reaction, I do believe copper can be transformed in your body with the aid of zinc and possibly bacteria or yeasts into silver.

Silver can then be turned into gold with the aid of fungi yeast that ingest silver.

Common yeast species like saccharomyces cerevisiae (turn grapes into wine) produce the silver-binding protein that enables the attachment of active yeast cells to available silver surfaces.

The bottom line being that the budding yeast cells act as an electron donor which induces the transmutation of silver into gold.

There is a biblical story about Moses commanding a goldsmith to prepare manna for the "Bread of the Presence of God" which apparently used yeast to convert silver into gold.

The "Gods" seem to have a great attraction to Gold!

Turning a Copper Penny into Gold Video

That was more of an illusion because it appears that you need bacteria or yeasts to get the real job done...

Bacteria that Poops Gold - No Shit - lol

King Solomon holds "The Key"

Is it a coincidence that King Solomon is associated with great wisdom and lots of Gold? Remember what I said about coincidences - lol.

Gold is a key element in the transmittal of electrical signals throughout your body and the healing energy of gold has long been hidden.

It appears that gold can also be used to reflect some of the light from say a very "Bright and Excitable" Sun - like the "Blazing Star" (coincidently, excitability is a sign of high copper)

It appears that gold was used as a way to escape Global Warming by the Annunaki - which is a long story made short.

The Key of King Solomon is the "Most Important" lost symbol of all time!

This key is depicted in places like the Vatican and in Rome. King Solomon's key represents the constellations of the "Gods" and the exact place in the heavens where these "Gods" reside.

Not only that, but the greatest secret of them all is connected to this key - that humanity is of this "sacred bloodline".

Just a note before watching this next video - The Garden of Eden appears to be connected to the "Blazing Star".

You will see Solomon's Key which is the constellations of Orion and the Pleiades or the Ancient Stars of the "Gods"....Home of the "Gods" Video

The "Blazing Star" is symbolized by a circle with an outer circle or the symbol that Target (major retailer) has stolen.

And its "hidden" meaning is that it leads to the "Garden of Eden".

That's why there is always a pointing "Up" of fingers to the heavens in many famous "Works of Art" by Leonardo da Vinci - who obviously knew more than most people could ever imagine.

The Lost Treasure of Leonardo da Vinci

The Flower of Life can be found in all Major religions of the World, in Ancient Temples, and in Ancient Synagogues.

The Flower of Life is based on the hexagram and contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the "Great Void" - as everything is made from the Creator's thoughts.

The Tree of Life, The Golden Ratio of Phi, and every Sacred Geometric Shape stems from the "Complete Flower of Life".

And you will also find this in the......The Seal of Solomon & Christ - Video

The Copper Depletors

An overemphasis on zinc supplementation may have caused a secondary copper deficiency - because of the believe that it removes copper toxicity (which may or may not even exist).

Copper and Zinc are both key trace minerals that are commonly thought to be deficient in Western Diets.

Copper and zinc are very similar in atomic structure and can compete with one another for absorption. Zinc is also capable of stepping into copper's binding sites - thus interfering with copper's metabolism.

Zinc and copper need to be in balance with a ratio of no more than 10:1 zinc to copper. As research has shown that an excessive ratio of zinc to copper has a negative impact on cardiovascular and skeletal health.

It has also been found that an excess of either zinc or copper can lead to a deficiency in the other. For example: If you are a heavy meat eater, you will get plenty of zinc - but not much copper and if you are a vegetarian or vegan, you will get plenty of copper - but not much zinc.

Balance is key when it comes to these two minerals!

Foods High in Zinc:

Animal Foods: Liver, Red Meats (especially lean cuts), Pig (especially lean cuts), Poultry, Eggs

Seafood: Oysters, Crab, Clams, Mussels, Lobster

Dairy: Yogurt (Low Fat & Skim), Cheddar Cheese, Mozzarella

These Factors may also Lower the Amount of Copper Absorbed:

  • Excessive Dietary Fiber
  • High Iron in Diet
  • Cadmium (Marijuana & Bottom Feeding Fish)
  • Lead & Mercury
  • High Vitamin C intake
  • Excessive Fructose or Sucrose
  • Excessive Sulfur and Molybdenum
  • Low Stomach Acid (Antacids, Alkaline Diets, etc.)
  • Celiac Disease & Chronic Diarrhea
  • High Calcium or Manganese in Diet
  • High B-6 and Folic Acid intake
  • Refined Grains
  • Long-term Cooking Processes

Studies show that copper intake in America is borderline or completely inadequate. Most Americans probably get about 1.0 mg or less of copper per day - if they are lucky.

It's important to note that amino acids can help you to absorb copper, but too many Sulfur amino acids will increase copper elimination in your body.

Foods High in Sulfur

Animal Foods: Red Meats (especially factory farmed), Poultry (especially lean cuts), Eggs

Seafood: Tuna, Halibut, Cod

Dairy: Whole Milk, Whey, Cheese, Yogurt

Grains: Wheat Germ

Legumes: Cashews, Peanuts, Soybeans, Most Beans, Lentils

Dairy: Butter, Cream

Grains: Rice, Millet, Oats, Barley

Fruits: Raw Apples, Raw Peaches, Figs, Grapefruit, Citrus Fruits, Melons

Vegetables: Zucchini, Squash, Yams, Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Corn (Non-GMO), Eggplant

Misc. Coconut Milk

Also, grazing or foraging animals may become deficient in copper due to pastures or hay that are too high in sulfur because of sulfur based fertilizers that create low levels of copper in the soil.

And feeds that contain sulfur in antagonistic amounts (corn gluten feed, corn gluten meal, distiller grains, soybean meal, and cottonseed meal) can create a copper deficiency in animals that will only add to your deficiency.

Prolonged cortisone treatments has also been shown to increase the body's excretion of copper and vaccinations are one of the most effective ways to deplete copper from your liver - where most of your copper is usually found.

Vaccines were designed to implant nanoparticle sized parasites called viruses - to deplete liver copper stores.

These parasites settle in, thrive, and replicate in the presence of iron deposits and a copper deficiency - which increases a defective blood supply, inflammation, bacterial infections, lesions, and cancer.

Vaccinations, Antibiotics, Drugs, Alcohol, and Anything else that is Toxic to your liver may impair your ability to produce Ceruloplasmin.

And a deficiency of transport or storage proteins can lead to a copper deficiency in the same manner as a low dietary intake.

The Catch-22 of Coffee

The highest amount of copper will be found in a cup of Espresso (especially Decaf Espresso). Coincidently, most Espresso Machines use copper tubing.

Espresso is a more concentrated coffee drink, but may contain only half the amount of caffeine compared to a regular "Cup of Joe".

Regular coffee contains way too much caffeine and caffeine can remove copper from your body.

Caffeine has the ability to chelate copper along with other minerals like calcium and magnesium right out of your blood.

Caffeine also has a direct impact on your adrenal glands. It makes these glands release cortisol and adrenaline which gives you the "rush" associated with drinking coffee.

What's the fastest way to burn out your adrenal glands? Yep, too much caffeine and stress!

Exhausted adrenals will cause a decrease in ceruloplasmin production as this gland has a direct effect on your liver function. As a result, copper is not properly bound and is made less available to your body.

Ironically, copper does what caffeine can do for your brain as copper constantly keeps the conversion of dopamine into norepinephrine going so that you have a constant adrenaline rush - to help you be on the go.

Copper also increases the electrical potential of your neurons - possibly due to the enhancement of the movement of sodium.

Compulsive behavior like exercising fanatically may be copper and adrenal related as well. You see exercise stimulates the adrenals which helps to keep copper available and makes one feel better.

Maybe that's why so many people crave coffee, exercise, and other drugs that stimulate their adrenal glands - because they are so.... deficient in copper.

Adrenal gland burnout will be characterized by chronic fatigue and other symptoms like fear - which appears to be related to a copper imbalance.

If after drinking a big cup of coffee, you experience nausea, spaciness, irritableness, or rashes - you know you've gone too far and copper is being heavily eliminated from your body.

You may also experience more colds, flu, sinus conditions, Candida Overgrowth, and infections as more copper is being eliminated.

Consuming the RDA for copper, healing your adrenal glands (by cutting back on caffeine & stress), adequate rest, adequate enzymes, and releasing fearful thoughts will go hand in hand in restoring you back to "Optimal Health".

Roundup aka "Agent Orange"

Monsanto's Roundup is a direct descendent of Agent Orange and scientific evidence is mounting that Roundup is causing birth defects as terrible as those found in the Agent Orange contaminated areas of Vietnam.

Both Monsanto and Dow together contaminated the land of Vietnam and destroyed their forests. They also killed, maimed, and crippled millions of Vietnamese people - and now they are trying a repeat here in America.

They are in the midst of seeking approval for genetically modified crops that can withstand heavy doses of 2,4-D which is the principal ingredient of Agent Orange.

Most genetically modified crops are engineered to tolerate this horrible herbicide and approximately "90 to 95%" of soybeans grown in the US are designed to be "Roundup Ready".

GMO corn produces "Agent Orange" so when you eat these type of GMO foods - you will be getting a "Double Whammy".

How to tell if you've just eaten "Agent Orange" or GMO Foods - you get sick to your stomach right after a meal!

Roundup is being heavily marketed in 120 countries. Abnormally, high levels of birth defects, neonatal mortality, respiratory problems and skin problems have been reported in populations living near fields being sprayed by Roundup.

Pollen can travel up to a mile from a GMO crop and the only way you can protect the food you are growing from this type of crop - is to use a "Green House" type of closed environment.

Another big problem with Roundup aka "Agent Orange" is that it stays in the environment.....The Effects of Agent Orange

Toxic herbicides interfere with the micro-organisms in the soil that are required to make minerals usable for crops. This will significantly reduce the amount of minerals found in a food.

As an example: Organic produce has on average 5 times the mineral content compared to conventional produce which has been sprayed with toxic compounds.

Basically, you will find very low levels of nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and copper - but a high amount of poisons in plants sprayed with Roundup.

The Frankenstein aka Zombie Agenda

It has been established that genetic material from GMO foods can transfer into the DNA of your intestinal bacterial and continue to thrive - thus turning them into "Franken-Bacteria".

Pathogens on Steroids! GMO foods can make bacteria resistant to antibiotics or in other words "Super-Bugs".

And since, you are primarily made up of bacteria - guess what you will become? Monsanto's version of "Frankenstein" or a "Zombie"!

GMOs have been linked to Mad Cow's Disease and have also been linked to Morgellon's Disease.

The Symptoms of Morgellon's Disease are:

  • Crawling Sensation under Skin
  • Stinging & Biting Sensations
  • Threads of Speck-like Material on or Beneath the Skin
  • Lesions
  • Changes in Vision
  • Mental Confusion & Memory Loss
  • Fatigue & Joint Pain
  • Social Dysfunction

These foods are not fit for human consumption, but they sure make a great food for creating a "Zombie Race" of people or the "Living Dead".

This should be Monsanto's Theme Song

Just say, "NO!",
