Popeye was Wrong!!!!

From Paul Saladino, MD.:

“When Popeye said “I’m strong to the finich, ’cause I eats me spinach” he was either lying to you or badly mistaken.

Because about the only thing spinach is gonna’ give you is a sore gut.

The belief that it is good for strength originated in the 19th Century, when German chemists measuring the iron content of spinach accidentally misplaced a decimal point.

This led to the erroneous belief that spinach contained 10x more iron than it really did.

And by the time the claim was corrected in the 1930’s it was too late.

Big Spinach had already coopted Popeye into spreading the message.

True story!

Remember that plants do not want their leaves, stems, roots or seeds to be eaten.

They can’t run away or bite so the only option they have is to use defense chemicals or thorns.

Spinach and other vegetables like kale, chard and broccoli contain problematic chemicals like isothiocyanates and oxalates.

One isothiocyanate in particular called goitrin appears to be a potent inhibitor of iodine absorption at the level of the thyroid – no bueno!

And don’t get me started on other issues like oxalates or the poor absorption of iron in these vegetables.

Lots of folks ask me “Well Paul if animals can eat these things, how come I can’t?”

To that I say do you have four stomachs?

Do you have a rumen?

Do you have millions of years of evolution as a herbivore?

No, no and no!

In fact, you are an omnivore that is meant to favor meat.

That is what made Homo sapiens, Homo habilis and Homo erectus.

It’s very hard to debate the notion that eating organs and meat made our ancestors human.

You are not an herbivore and you are not adapted to consume plants like herbivores are.

Putting these foods in your diet takes you down notches.

And if you want to be ‘strong to the finich’ like Popeye then you will choose organs over spinach.

The iron found in spinach is non-heme iron…

It’s got a poor absorption rate and it’s the equivalent of trying to run Windows on a Mac…

Yes it can be done but it’s a pain in the butt and why bother when there is a better alternative?

Organs like liver, spleen and blood are nature’s richest source of heme iron, the sort our body wants…

(like your Macbook wants MacOS).

Where can you get these organs?

Try a good butcher or local rancher (always get high quality organs).

And if you can’t or won’t do that, then you can get grass fed desiccated or dried.”

Are we getting the Nutrients we need?

Optimal Nutrition includes sufficient levels of: Vitamin D; Magnesium; Vitamin K2; Vitamin B-12; Vitamin A; Vitamin E; Iodine; Carnosine; and Saturated Fat only from Grass fed Butter, Unrefined (Virgin) Coconut Oil; Grass fed Beef Tallow; Pastured/Organic Lard; Organic Poultry Fat.

The single most important method of optimizing your Vitamin D levels is exposing enough of your skin to the sun during around solar noon, which is 1 p.m. for those who live in Daylight Savings Time in the summer. One must be careful to never get burnt while understanding that the primary reason most people burn is that they have too much linoleic acid in their fat and that is the molecule the sun damages, which leads to burns and skin cancers.

Not only will regular sun exposure help to optimize your vitamin D levels but it will also increase melatonin in your mitochondria, which will decrease oxidative stress and increase energy production efficiency. It will also help to metabolize vitamin A and optimize your immune function.

If you are unable to reach at least 40 ng/ml with sun exposure you might want to consider an oral supplement, but that should be your last resort.

If you had zero sun exposure on significant areas of your bare skin, like most people, then research suggests it would require 9,600 IUs of vitamin D per day for most to reach 40 ng/mL,8 but individual requirements can vary widely, and you’ll need to get your levels tested twice a year, in the early spring, after the winter and early fall when your level is at its peak and low point. It’s important to note that vitamin D supplementation must be balanced with other nutrients, namely vitamin K2 (to avoid complications associated with excessive calcification in your arteries), calcium and magnesium. to ensure you take the correct dosage required to get you into the optimal range. It’s important to note that vitamin D supplementation must be balanced with other nutrients, namely vitamin K2 (to avoid complications associated with excessive calcification in your arteries).

Minerals are the shields for oxidative stress. So, literally every function in the body is dependent, in some way, on minerals.” James DiNicolantonio, Pharm.D., author of “The Mineral Fix”

Magnesium – if levels are low, supplement with Magnesium Threonate, It is the most efficient at penetrating your mitochondria and blood-brain barriier. Magnesium rich foods: Avocados; Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds; Sesame Seeds; Sprouted Cashews, Sprouted Non-irradiated Raw Almonds (Usually a Health Food Co-op Store has them imported from Spain); Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon; Organic Papaya.

Vitamin K2 — The two types of vitamin K: phylloquinone, or vitamin K1; and menaquinones, or vitamin K2. Vitamin K2, known for its role in bone and heart health, is found in grass fed animal products such as meat, eggs, liver and dairy, as well as in fermented foods, including sauerkraut, certain cheeses and the fermented soy food natto — items that many Americans do not consume enough of.

As a general rule, if you have osteoporosis, heart disease or diabetes, you’re likely deficient in vitamin K2. Further, it’s believed that the vast majority of people are in fact deficient and would benefit from more K2, which you can achieve by eating more of the following foods:

Certain fermented foods such as natto, or vegetables fermented using a starter culture of vitamin K2-producing bacteria.

Certain cheeses such as Brie, Munster and Gouda, which are particularly high in K2.

Grass fed organic animal products such as egg yolks, liver, butter and dairy.

Vitamin B12 — Vitamin B12, a water-soluble vitamin also known as cobalamin, plays a role in numerous biochemical reactions and neurological functions in your body, including DNA synthesis. Your body can’t make vitamin B12 on its own, so it must be obtained via your diet or supplementation.

A deficiency can be serious and leads to a number of related changes, including personality disturbances, irritability and depression, along with a wide range of symptoms, including joint pain, “pins and needles” sensations, numbness and shortness of breath.

Americans may have lower than ideal B12 levels. While vegetarians and vegans are susceptible since B12 is derived from animal products, even meat eaters may be deficient, as problems with absorption are common.

B-12 is the largest vitamin molecule and as such has a hard time being absorbed by your body. Your stomach produces a glycoprotein called intrinsic factor, which combines with vitamin B-12 so it can be absorbed in your lower small intestine. The problem is that as people age many lose the ability to produce intrinsic factor and are prone to developing vitamin B-12 deficiency.

B12 is tightly bound to proteins and high acidity is required to break this bond. Some people may not have sufficient stomach acid to separate the B12 from the protein. Advancing age may also diminish your ability to absorb the vitamin from food and increase your risk of deficiency.

Regularly eating B12-rich foods, such as grass fed beef liver, wild rainbow trout and wild sockeye salmon, is important to maintain adequate levels, but if you suspect you may be deficient, weekly B12 shots or a high-dose, daily supplement may be necessary.

Methylcobalamin, which is the naturally occurring form of vitamin B12 found in food, is more absorbable than the cyanocobalamin, which is the type found in most supplements. If you are elderly, it is an inexpensive insurance approach to take a B-12 supplement with methylcobalamin.

Vitamin – People who eat foods rich in vitamin A, or retinol, not beta-carotene, experience a reduced risk of developing squamous cell skin cancer as well, as vitamin A affects cell growth and differentiation, which plays a role in the development of cancer.

Vitamin A is a group of nutrients that falls into two different categories: retinoids found in animal foods and carotenoids found in plant foods. The two are chemically different and provide different health benefits, but both are necessary for optimal health. Plant foods high in beta-carotene include cantaloupe and mangoes. Animal foods rich in vitamin A include Grass fed liver, pastured organic egg yolks and grass fed butter.

Vitamin E — Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that acts as a sink for the many reactive oxygen species in your body. Vitamin E is also neuroprotective, helping to protect your eyes from glaucoma, and needed by your body to boost immune function and widen blood vessels to keep blood from clotting.

But many Americans do not consume enough vitamin E-rich foods, putting them at risk of deficiency. You can find vitamin E in Sprouted nuts and seeds. Remember that antioxidant supplements such as vitamin E are fat-soluble and best taken with a fatty meal.

Iodine — Many people don’t get enough iodine in their diet Your body uses iodine across several organ systems, but it is most commonly known to synthesize thyroid hormones. Clinically low levels of iodine are associated with visible symptoms, such as a goiter (swelling of the thyroid gland), hypothyroidism or pregnancy-related problems. However, subclinical iodine deficiency can also interfere with your thyroid function.

Even moderately imbalanced thyroid levels may be associated with increased risk of metabolic syndrome, researchers noted in the journal Environmental International, which is why “studying factors that contribute to low thyroid function, even at the subclinical level, is of high public health importance.”

Thyroid hormones, for instance, are essential for normal growth and development in children, neurological development in babies before birth and in the first year of life, and in regulating your metabolism.

In addition, iodine is an essential mineral that helps prevent polyunsaturated fats from oxidizing, alkalizes your body’s pH, protects against cancer and is a natural antibacterial agent. Foods that are naturally iodine-rich include spirulina, organic prunes, raw Grass fed organic dairy products, pastured organic eggs and Himalayan pink salt. Eating these foods on a regular basis will help ensure adequate levels.

Carnosine (beta-alanine) — Carnosine is a dipeptide composed of two amino acids: beta-alanine and histidine. It’s a potent antioxidant as it binds to advanced lipoxidation endproducts (ALEs) that are the result of oxidized seed oils in your diet. The highest concentrations of carnosine are found in your muscles and brain.

If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, you will have lower levels of carnosine in your muscles. This is one reason why many strict vegans who do not properly compensate for this and other nutritional deficiencies tend to have trouble building muscle. Carnosine itself is not very useful as a supplement as it is rapidly broken down into its constituent amino acids by certain enzymes. Your body then reformulates those amino acids back to carnosine in your muscles.

A more efficient alternative is to supplement with beta-alanine, which appears to be the rate limiting amino acid in the formation of carnosine. Eating Grass fed beef is known to efficiently raise carnosine levels in your muscle, which is why if you’re a vegetarian or vegan this supplement may be particularly important

Saturated fat from butter, animal products — The introduction of the first Dietary Guidelines for Americans in 1980, which recommended limiting saturated fat and cholesterol, coincided with a rapid rise in obesity and chronic diseases such as heart disease.

As saturated fats fell out of favor, and health officials wrongly urged Americans to avoid such healthy fats as butter, Americans began replacing them with products made from refined vegetable/seed oils, which are among the worst foods to consume.

Many are still not consuming enough saturated fats, such as those from grass fed butter. In a systematic review and meta-analysis of nine publications including 15 country-specific cohorts, butter consumption was not significantly associated with cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease or stroke, but increased consumption was associated with a lower incidence of diabetes.

Grass fed butter, alone, is a rich source of vitamin A in the most absorbable form, vitamin E, vitamin K2, antioxidants, conjugated linoleic acid, iodine in a highly absorbable form, vitamin D and more. By consuming nutritious whole foods like butter, you can lower your risk of multiple nutrient deficiencies at once.

The best way to ward off nutrient deficiencies is to intentionally fortify your meals with whole, nutrient-dense foods, including healthy saturated and omega-3 fats. Targeted supplements can also be beneficial to make up for any nutritional gaps. When choosing any multivitamin or mineral supplements, look for a manufacturer that has checks and balances in place to ensure the quality of the product.

Copper Deficiency is a Problem

Processed foods are seriously lacking in copper. And because of pesticides, soil is not as mineral rich as it once was. As such, many people have a copper deficiency. Fatigue, anemia, low energy levels, slow metabolism are symptoms of a copper deficit.

“Iron and copper are highly interdependent and need to be considered together. If you don’t have enough copper, hemoglobin production becomes impaired. (Hemoglobin is in blood and carries oxygen to the body’s organs.) If you don’t have copper in your diet, you can’t make hemoglobin and you cannot properly metabolize Iron. Excess iron leads to oxidative stress.  (Like rust on cast iron skillets.)

Additionally, an anemia diagnosis does not automatically mean you’re iron deficient. You may be deficient in copper. Anemia typically relates to iron dysfunction or dysregulation, not deficiency.”

Too much iron slows down your metabolism. The two principal ways our bodies use iron are: in a heme group or iron sulfur clusters. “And to make heme and to make iron sulfur clusters, we’ve got to have copper. Four of the eight enzymes to make heme are copper dependent & the rate limiting variable in making iron sulfur clusters, Glutaredoxin-5, requires copper.” Without copper, the heme enzymes and the iron sulfur cluster enzymes are not going to work right. Iron is going to start to build up, increasing the acidity inside cells. When the cells becomes more acidic, they can not make energy.

Good Health requires sufficient energy production. Retinol or Vitamin A is needed for that energy production and It can only be obtained from animal sources. Butter, heavy cream, egg yolks, liver are particularly high in retinol. Your body can make retinol from beta-carotene, but ONLY if you have adequate copper in the tissue. Foods like grass-fed beef liver, bee pollen & whole food vitamin C can raise your copper levels. Also, growing your own food ensures getting enough copper. Just add copper sulfate before you plant by spraying the soil. 10 to 15 pounds per acre.”

Sun exposure is very important. It increases melatonin production which radically reduces oxidative stress. Exposing your bare skin to the Sun also activates Vitamins D and A.

“The best way to lower excessive iron is to donate blood, one to four times a year. Most adult men and postmenopausal women have high iron and could benefit from regular blood donation, as high iron is extremely toxic and destroys health. An even better strategy is to remove smaller amounts of blood every month (seek the services of a Phlebotomist).”

J.I.C of Nuclear Fallout

Although the Russian Ukraine Invasion may be a fake manipulated construct (or not, think Georgia Guidestones), we should take precautions. (“Russian forces seized the defunct Chernobyl nuclear site & damaged Europe’s largest atomic plant.”) Nuclear weapons release radioactive elements including radioactive iodine. The damage from Nuclear Fallout can cause cancer & radiation sickness. Sheltering inside a hard building is recommended after a nuclear fallout.

Interestingly, the radiation from a nuclear fallout is the same type of radiation emitted from Cellphones. So, taking these daily precautions are beneficial regardless.

In the case of nuclear exposure:

• The recommended daily dosage (RDA) of potassium iodide for an adult is 130 milligrams (mg). For best results, take iodine one hour before radiation exposure, and no later than 12 hours after exposure. Potassium iodide protects only the thyroid.  Also, Lugol’s solution includes both potassium iodide and iodine in water.

Non-radioactive iodine helps prevent the radioactive iodine from concentrating in your thyroid gland, thereby reducing the risk of thyroid cancer. As your thyroid gets saturated with non-radioactive iodine, the radioactive iodine gets flushed out of your body through your urine.”

“The thyroid gland cannot distinguish between stable (regular) iodine and radioactive iodine and will absorb whatever it can … Babies and young children are at highest risk. The risk is much lower for people over 40. Thyroid cancer seems to be the only cancer whose incidence rises after a radioactive iodine release.

Important: realize iodine does not protect against any other radioactive elements, only radioactive iodine.

For Daily use, not after a Nuclear Event:

• RDA for iodine ranges from 110 micrograms (mcg) for babies – from birth to 6 months of age. Up to 150 mcg for men and women over 19. Women who are pregnant – 220 mcg; breastfeeding – 290 mcg.

• Some other supplements to protect: vitamin D3, magnesium & molecular hydrogen. Most adults need about 8,000 IUs of vitamin D per day. But know, vitamin D is best obtained by far from the Sun.

• The BEST way to get vitamin D is from the sun. Exposing it to your bare skin. Go out every day in the sun around noon to get enough UVB to generate vitamin D.

• Foods that are naturally high in iodine: spirulina, organic prunes, raw dairy products, eggs and Himalayan pink sea salt. Eat these foods regularly to ensure good iodine levels.

Bromide, Fluoride, Nitrates, Perchlorate are contaminants that prevent iodine absorption. Bromides are found in plastic, pesticides & baked goods. You can eliminate these from your diet by avoiding baked goods that contain them; eating organic food.

Fluoride can be avoided by consuming only Spring Water, ideally in glass containers. Nitrates are in processed meats (lunch meat, bacon, hot dogs & sausage). Perchlorates are found in milk, fruit and vegetables. Eating organic can significantly reduce your exposure.

Definitions

Radioactive Iodine comes from Nuclear Power Plants/Weapons.

Non-radioactive iodine is potassium iodide. It prevents the radioactive iodine from concentrating in your thyroid gland, thereby reducing the risk of thyroid cancer.

Iodine – symbol I… atomic number 53. A mineral found in some foods. The body needs iodine to make thyroid hormones. These hormones control the body’s metabolism and many other important functions. The body also needs thyroid hormones for proper bone and brain development during pregnancy and infancy.

HIV Hoax Articles Scrubbed from Internet

I couldn’t even find any on Duck Duck Go…….HIV was reported to never have existed… the articles were listed in Duck Duck Go in 2020 when the Covid Pandemic was first declared. Here’s a video about it: https://youtu.be/LT7ZFDCQzQw . Isn’t Duck Duck Go about freedom?

A German Doctor filed a Lawsuit that ended up in the German Supreme Court. He won the Case, proving the HIV Virus was never isolated and identified under a microscope. Also, in the 1990’s or 2000’s, a Wealthy Man offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who could identify HIV under a microscope. No one ever came forward.

Now, there’s a push to get Heterosexuals tested for HIV….and whadayaknow?, Moderna has developed an HIV Vaccine.

At the same time, it’s been reported that the “Vaccinated” have dysfunctional immune systems or a “Dangerous New Strain of” AIDS (a side effect of the Covid Vaccine).

The timing: The HIV hoax has been around 40± years…why is there a “Dangerous New Strain” NOW?

When The News Media reports Covid & HIV together, like HIV actually exists, how can anyone believe Covid is a real thing, when HIV was proven a lie?

With all the HIV Hoax articles scrubbed from the internet, THIS IS ANOTHER INSTANCE of the MANDELA EFFECT.

*****From Mercola.com 3/28/2022:

The Defender (Children’s Health Defense):

“[on] March 14, 2022, 72,277 “COVID deaths” were removed from the tally, including 24% of those attributed to children under 18. The claim – a “coding logic error,” a faulty algorithm, had “accidentally” counted deaths that weren’t related to COVID. As reported by Udumbara:

‘Some of the pediatric deaths attributed to COVID-19, include deaths by drowning or drug use.’

Somehow, we’re supposed to believe that it took two years to realize this error. It’s simply not believable.

Curiously, three months before the mortality statistics started being changed, the information on hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 stopped being collected. From the start of the pandemic, changing definitions have allowed authorities to manipulate data in whatever way they needed.

Data on COVID hospitalizations and the COVID vaccination has also been hidden. The stated justification for not making certain data public is that people are “misinterpreting” the data. In other words, the data show that the COVID jabs don’t work, and they don’t want that to be widely known.”
