We are sure you heard about all these problems with Salmonella in and on eggs?|
These eggs were produced in an egg factory in Iowa, where millions of chicken are held in huge barns. The company was often penalized for wrong doing. The feces from the chicken are stored in huge open pools, close to the living quarters of many migrant workers
Salmonella factsA) Salmonella are bacteria named 1885 by T. Smith after his director D.E.Salmon
B) Salmonella can cause diseases
C) Salmonella can live on fruits, vegetables, uncooked or undercooked meats and eggs
on egg shells and even in water
D) Salmonella can be killed with Antibiotics
What can you do to avoid Salmonella infection?
1) Wash your hands after touching all the food mentioned above
2) Avoid to eat raw meat, raw eggs
In the moment we have no vaccine for salmonellosis
Ebola factsThe Ebola virus was first identified in 1976 in West Africa. Many scientist believe that deforestation brought many forest animals closer to humans and the human immune system was not able to handle the new attacks.
The symptoms of Ebola are: Fever, flu-like pains, bleeding, vomiting and diarrhea.
Ebola is transmitted through blood, vomit, diarrhea and other bodily fluids, and it will take about 21 days after the infection to show symptoms.
Humans with a healthy immune system are more likely to survive the Ebola virus attack, and they produce antibodies who protect them for over a decade.
2014 we face the worst Ebola outbreak on record.
Over 9000 humans have been infected in 2014, about half of them were killed by the viurs.
The hot spots of Ebola are in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal.
2 nurses in Dallas Texas have contracted the disease treating a man from West Africa. First this man was sent home without the proper care, 2 days later he came back to the hospital, were he died. In Europe, a Spanish nurse was also infected.
Many pharmaceutical companies are working on a vaccine or cure for Ebola.
The perfect function of the body’s immune system is very important. The immune system plays one of the most important roles in the body when it comes to keeping us healthy.|
The immune system is a network of cells, tissues and organs that work together to defend the body against attacks by ‘foreign’ invaders - as bacteria, parasites and fungi—that can cause infections.
The human body provides an wonderful habitat for many microbes, so the immune system is always busy to keep them out, to find microbes and destroy them.
We are still learning how the body launches attacks that destroy invading microbes, infected cells and tumors while ignoring healthy tissues.
Food with enough vitamins, helps the immune system to function. Studies show that vitamin D may play a big part in activating the immune system.
Corn syrup can make you obese!
Princeton University published a great study.
Scientists wanted to know if different sweeteners have different influence on the human body. High-fructose corn syrup intake leads to significantly more weight than the use of table sugar, no matter of the caloric intake.
More body fat, stored on the waste line and a rise in triglycerites.
Check your food, read the labels.
High-fructose corn syrup is different, can lead to weight gain and obesity.
We are sure you heard about Antioxidants?
Antioxidants are very important? They counter free radicals—highly unstable molecules that can damage cells. Free radicals are formed during oxidation, one of the body’s natural processes.
Free radicals are produced when the body breaks down foods for use or storage. They are also produced when the body is exposed to tobacco smoke, radiation and environmental contaminants as oil fumes or man made chemicals. Free radicals can cause damage, known as oxidative stress. Many diseases are started by stress. Antioxidant molecules fight oxidative stress leading to less damage.
The body can produce its own antioxidants and also obtain them from food. Antioxidants are abundant in vegetables and fruits and are also found in grain cereals, teas, legumes and nuts. Examples of antioxidants include anthocyanins, beta-carotene, catechins, flavonoids, lipoic acid, lutein, lycopene, selenium and vitamins C and E.
Congress has passed comprehensive health care reform. Most Americans will be guaranteed high quality, affordable health care coverage.
Arbitrary premium hikes, insurance cancellations, and discrimination against pre-existing conditions will now be gone.
Because of the bill the cost of care should be reduced - new job creation, removing over a trillion dollars of debt from the backs of the next generation.
The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of President Obama’s healthcare law, ruling the government may impose tax penalties on persons who do not have health insurance.
The court’s ruling rejected a broad legal attack on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act brought by Republican state officials and the National Federation of Independent Business. The legal challenge focused on the law’s so-called mandate that all must have insurance or pay a tax penalty.

Bacterial “Signatures” stay on people's Keyboards
Scientists have found that bacterial signatures from users stay quite a while on computer keyboards and mice. When the testing is prepared for easy use it can help law enforcement in identifying suspects.
Skin bacteria left behind on keyboards and computer mice provide the identify the objects’ users.
Avoid breathing in oil gases, diesel gases, gasoline gases.
All these chemical evaporation gases harm your health!
There are more than 80,000 man-made chemicals in use in the U.S.
But only about 200 have been required to be tested for safety.
Earth's oceans are contaminated with huge numbers of man made chemicals. BPA used in plastics in one of them, PCB another one.
A blood test of every American alive today, including newborn babies, shows many man-made chemicals flowing through our blood.
38 different man-made chemicals are found in breast milk.

The seasonal flu shortens the life of many people every year!|
Be careful in big crowds
After contact with unknown surfaces wash your hands.
How do you recognize a potential infection with the flu?
Below is a list of the main symptoms of the flu:
strong feeling of illness
fever + headache
body aches + chills
cough + sore throat
inflamed nasal mucous membranes
nausea and vomiting
no appetite + fatigue
What can you do against the flu?|
When you get symptoms of illness within a week of traveling, go to your doctor as soon as possible.
Be sure to tell your doctor about your recent travel and suggest testing for influenza.
Wash your hands as often as possible after contact with surfaces that are used not only by you!!
Use paper tissue when you need to touch door knobs, toilette doors.
Avoid shaking hands.
If you have touched unknown surfaces, avoid touching your mouth, eyes, nose.
A small bottle of hand sanitizer can be helpful to kill the virus.
Avoid close contact with those who are ill.
Stay home when sick.
Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
If you touched things, others have touched before, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
BSB has warned our members for a long time about contaminated food:
Mercury + lead
Antibiotics + hormones
Pesticide + fungicide
and much more is found in our food supply.
We inform you by email what to look for + how to be prepared, give you tips and warnings.
Weed killer can kill your baby!
One of the nation’s most widely used herbicides has been found to exceed federal safety limits in drinking water in four states, but water customers have not been told and the EPA protection Agency has not published the results.
An analysis found that yearly average levels of Atrazine in drinking water violated the federal standard at least ten times in communities in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Kansas, all states where farmers rely heavily on the herbicide.
Some states do not check at all.
More than 40 water systems showed spikes in Atrazine levels that normally would have triggered automatic notification of customers.
In none of those cases were residents alerted.
In interviews, EPA officials did not dispute the data but said they do not consider Atrazine a health hazard???
Atrazine is banned in Germany for 20 years, because it has killed fish and is causing birth defects with under-developed heart and organs.
So, if you are pregnant or have a weak immune system, check your water quality - ask your water board.
What does the corn-ethanol production to has to do with Antibiotics in our meat?
1/3 of the corn that goes into ethanol will be 'distillers grains'. Finding a high-value use for this byproduct is necessary to the corn ethanol project.
The fuel’s energy balance is not very good - corn-ethanol production delivers little net energy compared to how much is consumed producing it.
What happens to the byproduct:
It is used as animal feed —as a replacement for corn in the rations of livestock. As ethanol production boomed starting in 2007, distillers grains flowed into cow feedlots.
Distillers grains use might have been contributing to a nasty spate of E. Coli 0157 in beef - how - why?
The ethanol process relies on antibiotics to control the fermentation process—and distillers grains carry heavy traces of them into feedlot rations.
FDA has tested distillers grains samples and found them to contain significant levels of antibiotics. Ethanol producers use penicillin and popular antibiotic.

The human body and our blood has a pH of about 7, so most human enzymes have an optimum range around pH 7.
This is very different in the stomach. There the pH is acidic meaning a pH of 1 to 2, so the enzymes in the stomach have an optimum rate at pH 1. These enzymes will not work well outside the stomach in pH 7, which is very good for our body. Stomach enzymes break down food, which is protein, carbohydrate and fats. As you know our body is made out protein, carbohydrate and fats, and we don't want to be broken down by our own stomach enzymes.
