Where We Go 1 We Go All 9-15-19 VIDEO… “The Hegelian Dialectic” (and what is “Duper’s Delight?”)

Okay, I found this one very unveiling and I learned a few things from it, so that’s what “urged” me to post it.

The “Hegelian” part I’d heard of, and it’s the reason false flags are used (create a “problem”, public reacts to it, and public calls for the “solution” that the elites want). Particularly rampant right now (as seen via the latest Dem debate) is “gun control, gun control, gun control”, which morphs into “”remove everyone’s’ guns, remove everyone’s’ guns, remove everyone’s’ guns”. Great dictators apparently have used this with great success.

One word I’d not heard of is “Duper’s Delight“, or “Duping Delight“. This means, “the delight that people feel when they deceive others”, “often made visible to others by flashing a smile at an inappropriate moment”. Here’s a video someone made about this, and about how HRC has demonstrated this effect many times (back in 2015-16).

I have a feeling many will enjoy this video.

New calls for gun control by the likes of Beto Orourke and many others should not surprise anyone, its most likely the very reason these “Incidences” keep happening in the first place.

The Hegelian Dialectic:
The hegelian dialectic is where the ruling elite create a problem anticipating in advance the reaction of the population to the crisis and thus conditioning the people to call for change

When the population is properly conditioned, the desired agenda of the ruling elite is presented as the solution.

The solution they present is not intended to solve the problem, but to serve as the basis for a new problem, or exacerbate the existing one. When the newley created problem reaches boiling point, it becomes the foundation for the people to clamber for change again.

This process is repeated over and over, all the time moving society towards what ever point they have in mind

Omega-3s Protect Your Lungs and Mitochondria

The death toll from the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, included 343 firefighters and paramedics among the 2,7531 who were exposed to 10 million tons of material released in a caustic dust cloud as the twin towers were reduced to rubble.2

Since then, more than 150 have died. Of the nearly 400,000 who are eligible for the World Trade Center Health Program set up specifically to treat the physical and mental health challenges caused by exposure,3 72,000 are enrolled and 8,000 have been diagnosed with cancer.4

First responders were exposed to toxins, the result of exposure to dust containing chemicals in asbestos, glass fibers, lead and cement.5 Seventeen years later the WTC Health Program addresses care for those suffering from respiratory problems, malignant cancers, digestive problems and reproductive problems associated with the exposure.6

Utility workers, medical examiners, bus drivers and others were also affected.7 Researchers from New York University School of Medicine8 undertook an analysis to determine if there were indications that some first responders may have greater risk than others.9

Omega-3 May Protect Against Lung Damage in First Responders

The team believes their experiment is the first to suggest compounds present in first responders could prevent disease. They measured metabolites, which are chemicals the body makes as it breaks down fat, protein and carbohydrates. Metabolites are natural byproducts that result from the breakdown of these macronutrients.10

The study specifically linked 30 metabolites to first responders who had a lower incidence of obstructive airway disease. Conversely, they found those who had lower levels also had an increased risk of developing pulmonary disease.11

In a press release12 the researchers announced they had analyzed blood samples from 14,000 first responders and their lung function tests. Firefighters are a unique population since pre-exposure lung function testing was available for many of the first responders.13

Lung function testing has been done every year since 9/11. The study found specific chemicals were predictive of disease with a 93.3% accuracy. The two groups of metabolites most associated with lung injury were amino acids and lipids.14

The researchers were unsure of the biological function of the amino acids in relationship to lung injury. Increased concentration supported the hypothesis some firefighters had higher protein intakes and also enjoyed a lower risk of lung injury. However, they also felt it was unlikely that protein deficiency was an issue in active firefighters.

A number of lipid metabolites were found in higher quantities in those who were without lung injury. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)15 in particular acts as a precursor for reducing your inflammatory response and immune response to any injury. This effect may have helped reduce damage in first responders triggered by exposure to toxins.

Lead investigator George Crowley discussed the importance this data could have on prevention. He also shared potential recommendations for first responders participating in disaster relief and suggested that physicians analyze their patients’ blood and use the results to help guide treatment.16

Heart Risk Factors May Be Another Predictor of Lung Damage

The same team published findings in the journal Chest17 showing heart disease risk factors may also predict persistent lung damage in 9/11 first responders.18

The data demonstrated that traits of metabolic syndrome were a stronger predictor of lung dysfunction than tobacco smoking or the amount of exposure that emergency personnel were subjected to at the site of the attack.

The symptoms of metabolic syndrome include high blood pressure, abdominal obesity and high blood triglycerides.19 Dr. Anna Nolan, a senior study contributor from NYU School of Medicine, said,20 “A third of the population in most Western countries has abdominal obesity, insulin resistance and issues with high lipids.”

The researchers also noted the syndrome is linked to an increased risk for Type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease. The combination of particulate matter and metabolic syndrome was interesting to the researchers since issues with air pollution and particulate matter are becoming more common.21

The team analyzed data from firefighters enrolled in the WTC Health Program and found that the 1,208 people who developed lung injury by 2017 were more likely to be overweight or obese and to have metabolic syndrome.22 The data indicate that obesity is a greater risk factor than high blood sugar and insulin resistance.

Dr. Anne Dixon from the University of Vermont Medical Center was not involved in the study, but said she found the results highly important because it shows “a clear link” between metabolic syndrome and an increased risk of pulmonary disease.23

Omega-3 Protects Against Secondary Bacterial Infections

Past research24 has also demonstrated omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce bacterial infections in the lungs of those who suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Research from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry demonstrated that derivatives of omega-3 are effective in clearing non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae that may become problematic in those with COPD. Lung infections may put lives at risk in those who suffer from obstructive airway disease, such as first responders who are exposed to multiple toxins.

Richard Phipps, Ph.D., was part of the team who found that omega-3 provides precursors to help shut down excessive inflammation in the lungs. Using mice, the data show that unlike drugs used in the study, omega-3 helps reduce inflammation without stopping the animals’ capacity to clear bacteria. It may have even sped up the process of clearing bacteria overall.25

Omega-3 Fats Affect Your Mitochondrial Function

Your omega-3 levels may also affect your mitochondrial function, or dysfunction. Mitochondrial disease26 is a group of conditions attributed to the dysfunction of mitochondria rendering organelles unable to effectively generate energy. Some of the more profound effects become evident in the brain and muscle, including the heart.

Other organs affected include the liver, eyes and kidneys. Omega-3 fats are among the more promising nutritional components researchers have found that play a crucial role in the management of mitochondrial dysfunction.27 Your mitochondria are important in energy production and calcium signaling, as well as apoptosis and autophagy.28

In one animal study, the oral administration of omega-3 fats demonstrated a positive effect on mitochondrial function and neuroprotection.29 Giving omega-3 fats to cells in a lab setting demonstrated the ability to induce metabolic genes and metabolic rate, increasing mitochondrial content compared with control cells.30

One of the signs of advancing age is remodeling of the cell membranes in the heart.31 One impact on this remodeling is mitochondrial function, which plays a role in sustaining energy production. Some of the changes that occur during aging predispose heart cells to ischemic injury and cell death.

Changes in the mitochondrial membrane are exacerbated by the presence of omega-6 polyunsaturated fats. This has a significant consequence on the efficiency of cell function. Researchers have found that dietary changes involving increased amounts of omega-3 fats help with metabolic issues that affect aging and facilitate mitochondrial energy production.32

Omega-3 Index May Offer Insight Into Your Levels

The featured study points to just one of the benefits of maintaining optimal levels of omega-3 fats. Unfortunately, while most people get more than enough omega-6 from vegetable oils, salad dressings, mayonnaise and nuts,33 they don’t get enough omega-3.

Technically, omega-3 fats are found in plant and animal sources, but as I discuss below, animal sources are the most bioavailable to your body. Maintaining optimal levels of omega-3 is also associated with a reduction in levels of obesity34,35 and in the prevention of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases,36 nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and Alzheimer’s disease.37

Knowing your omega-3 level helps determine the amount of change needed to get your levels in the low risk category. William Harris, Ph.D., developed the omega-3 index, a blood test that measures the amount of omega-3 in your red blood cells. This reflects the amount in the rest of your body and is not influenced by recent meals.

The test has been used to evaluate data,38 the results of which demonstrate a healthy range of omega-3 measured in blood cells is from 8% to 12%.39,40 GrassrootsHealth, an independent research organization with whom we partner, offers an omega-3 and vitamin D at home test kit.

The results are completely private and require no doctor or lab visit. Once your sample and questionnaire are mailed, your results are usually ready within 10 to 20 days after the lab receives your sample. I offer this test kit simply as a convenience and courtesy as I don’t benefit or participate in the test in anyway.

Once you have your results, you have access to knowing how much omega-3 you need to reach a low level of risk. You may use this free calculator41 to help.

Choose Your Omega-3 Source Wisely

Although your body needs both plant and animal sources of omega-3 fats, they are not interchangeable. Plant-based omega-3 provides alpha linoleic acid (ALA), which your body inefficiently converts to EPA and poorly converts to DHA.42 Plant-based sources of omega-3 include flaxseed, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds. These help to boost your overall ALA intake.43

Fish and marine oil supplements are a direct source of EPA and DHA.44 EPA and DHA are essential in digestion, blood clotting, memory, learning and functions of cell receptors. You must get these from your diet.45 You may choose to increase your intake of wild-caught Alaskan salmon, mackerel, anchovies and herring to do so.

However, if these are not available, choose to use a krill oil supplement rather than fish oil. Since fatty acids are insoluble in water they need to be packaged in a type of lipoprotein to be transported within your blood. An unprocessed fish oil supplement is bound in triglycerides while krill oil is mostly bound in phospholipids.46

It’s the phospholipids in krill oil that make this form of omega-3 supplement easily bioavailable in the first 72 hours.47 As you consume fish oil, the liver must attach it to a phosphatidylcholine while krill already contains this substance — yet another reason krill oil demonstrates more efficient cellular uptake.48

In addition to these advantages, fish oil has a higher likelihood of oxidative damage, making it less stable than most other supplements.49 In testing 54 of the best-selling supplements,50 one lab found 59.2% of the products had levels of omega-3 that varied by more than 10% of what was labeled on the bottle.

The testing also revealed 92.5% had measurable amounts of mercury, known to damage the nervous system, digestive tract and immune system, as well as on the lungs, skin and kidneys.51

Ashitaba — A Most Powerful yet Unknown Herb

Native to Japan, ashitaba (Angelica keiskei koidzumi1) is a bitter leafy herb of the Angelica genus, closely related to the carrot. It’s also known as “tomorrow’s leaf,” due to its rapid growth and regenerative abilities. It’s a fast grower and new leaves rapidly sprout when picked.

The plant is well-known in China and Japan, having been part of the diet since ancient times. There, it has also been used medicinally for hundreds of years, as a general health promoter and antiaging remedy.2

The first reference to ashitaba is found in the Chinese Compendium of Materia Medica, compiled by Li Shizhen, a famous acupuncture physician and pharmacologist, between 1552 and 1578.3 According to a 2013 investigation,4 ashitaba “might be a useful agent in preventing deficit of learning and memory caused by AD [Alzheimer’s disease] and aging.”

Ashitaba — A Potent Autophagy Inducer

A more recent review,5 published February 2019 in Nature Communications, highlights the mechanism behind ashitaba’s antiaging benefits. Turns out it’s a potent inducer of autophagy. The term autophagy means “self-eating,” and refers to the processes by which your body cleans out debris and toxins and recycles damaged cell components. As explained in the introduction:6

“This facilitates the supply of recycled components for biosynthesis and thus contributes to cytoplasmic renewal and consequent cellular rejuvenation.

Conversely, impairment or dysregulation of autophagic function results in age-related pathologies. Altogether, autophagy is largely associated with cytoprotection and overall health.”

As noted by the authors, the aging process is one of the most expedient approaches to tackling chronic disease, since cellular aging is a core feature. By delaying the cellular degeneration associated with aging, you can stay healthier longer.

Healthy and efficient autophagy is an important part of this process, as without it, your body cannot effectively regenerate itself. As noted by the authors, “impairment or dysregulation of autophagic function results in age-related pathologies.”

Flavonoids in general are well-known for their anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic, antineurodegenerative and cytoprotective properties. In the case of ashitaba, one of its key flavonoids is 4,4?-dimethoxychalcone (DMC) which, according to this paper is “a natural autophagy inducer with phylogenetically conserved anti-ageing properties.” They also point out that:7

“… [A]dministration of DMC promotes cytoprotection and autophagy across species and … autophagy induction is required for the beneficial effects of this compound.

Autophagy activation by DMC depends on specific GATA transcription factors, but not on the TORC1 kinase, a major regulatory instance of autophagy. This suggests synergistic potential with other anti-ageing interventions that do rely on TORC1 signaling.”

DMC Promotes Longevity in All Species

The paper sought to identify natural compounds with antiaging properties. To that end, they screened 180 different plant flavonoids “for their ability to counteract age-related cellular demise.” Using three different assays, “DMC emerged as a top cytoprotective hit,” the authors say.8 DMC even outperformed resveratrol. Results showed DMC treatment:9

  • Reduced age-related increase in apoptotic and necrotic cell populations
  • Diminished the population of reactive oxygen species-accumulating cells
  • Promoted clonogenicity during ageing (clonogenicity refers to the ability of a cell to grow into a colony of cells in a cell survival assay10)

To assess DMC’s antiaging ability, they tested it on nematodes and fruit flies. Chronic treatment prolonged the median life span of both of these multicellular organisms by approximately 20%, and this effect was independent of their diet (both food composition and amount).

DMC also protected against liver damage caused by excess alcohol consumption in animals, and inhibited the proliferation of certain human cancer cells, specifically osteosarcoma, cervical carcinoma and neuroblastoma cells.

Importantly, DMC was found to induce “autophagic flux in all model systems tested from yeast to mammals.” In other words, it has the ability to induce autophagy across species, and a crucial component of this antiaging effect is its ability to induce autophagy. In the Discussion section of the paper, the authors summarize the importance of their findings:11

“While the beneficial effects of certain behavioral and dietary strategies (especially calorie restriction) are uncontestable, most individuals have difficulties to strictly and permanently adhere to them.

This has encouraged the search for potential pharmacological alternatives. The present work identifies the flavonoid 4,4?-dimethoxychalcone (DMC) as an anti-ageing compound with cardioprotective effects in mice and the potential to promote longevity across species …

To our knowledge, there is no natural source of DMC known to date. Intriguingly, we could detect DMC in the stipes and leaves (but not in the roots) of the chalcone-rich plant Angelica keiskei koidzumi (commonly known under the Japanese name of Ashitaba), to which longevity- and health-promoting effects are attributed in Asian folk medicine. This fuels the expectation that DMC may be therapeutically applicable in humans.”

Lead researcher Frank Madeo, professor at the University of Graz’s Institute of Molecular Biosciences in Austria, told Times of Malta,12 “It is always nice to find a scientific rationale for traditional medical folk tales.”

Medicinal Uses for Ashitaba

Traditional uses for ashitaba have encompassed a variety of ailments, including but not limited to fever, arthritis, indigestion and hepatitis.13 Modern science now supports many of its traditional uses, and then some. For example, studies on ashitaba and its components show it may be useful for the prevention and/or treatment of:14,15,16

  • High blood pressure17,18,19
  • Depression20
  • Heart attack and stroke21,22
  • Influenza23
  • Obesity24,25
  • Type 2 diabetes26,27,28 and metabolic syndrome29
  • Bacterial infections30,31
  • Fatty liver32
  • Cancer33,34,35
  • Alcohol-induced liver damage36 and liver damage caused by acetaminophen toxicity37
  • Memory loss38 and dementia, including Alzheimer’s39
  • Smoking-induced DNA damage40,41

Studies have also confirmed ashitaba is nontoxic and generally well-tolerated,42 including by those with metabolic syndrome.43

How to Grow and Use the Ashitaba Plant

As mentioned, ashitaba is a rapid grower that is easy to care for. While it can be tricky to find in U.S. nurseries, if you’re lucky enough to find one, you can grow it as a perennial in hardiness zones 7 through 10, as well as coastal regions near the ocean. Here are a few general guidelines for growing,44 harvesting and using45 ashitaba:

  • Plant in deep, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade. Maintain consistent moisture, but avoid overwatering. Provided soil conditions are favorable, the plant may grow to a height of 4 feet.
  • Fertilize in early spring using a 10-10-10 organic fertilizer.
  • Ashitaba will typically bloom in its second year. Seeds will be produced before it wilts and dies off, which you can collect and re-sow. Alternatively, allow the seeds to drop and repropagate. Plant shoots can be plucked off and planted to form new plants. Removing them will help prevent flowering and seeding.
  • Harvest leaves by pinching or clipping off individual leaves, which will rapidly regrow. Lay the leaves out to dry completely before storing. Be sure to avoid direct sunlight as they dry. To use the roots, gently loosen the soil and pull up the entire plant.

Fresh raw leaves can be treated like any other leafy green vegetable, so try adding some to salads, soups or smoothies. Start with a small amount, as ashitaba tends to be rather bitter. To make tea, gently crush a small handful of leaves into a pot of water and boil for 15 minutes. To make capsules, grind the dried leaves and stems into a powder first.

Resveratrol Improves Blood Sugar

I have often written about the many benefits of resveratrol, which is a phytonutrient belonging to a class of polyphenolic stilbene compounds found in some plants. This naturally occurring substance, also known as 3,4′,5-trihydroxystilbene, functions an as antiantioxidant, providing neuroprotection against many neurodegenerative illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease and stroke.

Yet that is hardly the limit of resveratrol’s other valuable actions. Unlike many other antiantioxidants, resveratrol crosses the blood-brain barrier which separates the brain’s blood from the extracellular fluid in the central nervous system.

This ability means resveratrol can increase cerebral blood flow and thus likely protect against stroke and vascular dementia,1 depression,2 brain inflammation,3 plaque buildup associated with Alzheimer’s disease4 bacteria and fungi,5 and may even improve learning, mood and memory.6

Recently, another apparent resveratrol benefit was confirmed by researchers –– resveratrol’s ability to improves blood sugar in those with Type 2 diabetes mellitus.7 After just eight weeks of resveratrol supplementation, subjects’ fasting blood sugar decreased, their high density lipoprotein increased and their insulin levels improved.8 Clearly this is a valuable nutrient with many benefits. I take it myself.

Important Implications for Those With Type 2 Diabetes

In a recent study in the journal Phytotherapy Research, 71 overweight patients with Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and a body mass index between 25 and 30 either received 1,000 mg/day trans-resveratrol or methyl cellulose, used as a placebo, for eight weeks. Their lipid and glycemic profiles were measured before and after the study.

Even though subjects did not change in the size, shape or composition of their bodies during the study –– called anthropometric measurements –– here is what the researchers found:9

“In adjusted model (age, sex, and baseline body mass index), resveratrol decreased fasting blood sugar (-7.97±13.6 mg/dL, p=0.05) and increased high density lipoprotein (3.62±8.75 mg/dL, p=0.01) levels compared with placebo.

Moreover, the mean difference in insulin levels reached significance (-0.97±1.91, ?IU/mL, p= 0.02) … It was found that 8-week resveratrol supplementation produced useful effects on some cardio-metabolic parameters in patients with T2DM.”

Another study with similar, encouraging results put 56 subjects who had both T2DM and coronary heart disease (CHD) on either resveratrol or placebo for only four weeks. The researchers said:10

“Resveratrol reduced fasting glucose, insulin and insulin resistance and significantly increased insulin sensitivity when compared with the placebo. Resveratrol also significantly increased HDL-cholesterol levels and significantly decreased the total-/HDL-cholesterol ratio when compared with the placebo.

Additionally, resveratrol caused a significant increase in total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and a significant reduction in malondialdehyde (MDA) levels when compared with the placebo.

Four-week supplementation of resveratrol in patients with T2DM and CHD had beneficial effects on glycemic control, HDL-cholesterol levels, the total-/HDL-cholesterol ratio, TAC and MDA levels. Resveratrol also upregulated PPAR-? and SIRT1 in the PBMCs of T2DM patients with CHD.”

Resveratrol May Prevent Type 2 Diabetes Complications

Certainly, selling synthetic antidiabetic agents is a lucrative enterprise for the drug industry. But phytonutrients such as resveratrol and other natural treatments are clearly preferable for those with diabetes because they lack the many side effects of these prescription drugs and are also often more affordable. So when a natural substance like resveratrol can help prevent diabetic side effects, as a recent issue of the journal Current Diabetes Reviews suggests, it is good news.

The journal researchers report that resveratrol and several other phytonutrients may hold great promise in addressing diabetic side effects and that more research is should be conducted:11

“Most of the reported findings focus on one aspect of several biochemical processes e.g. enhancement of glucose utilization, anti-oxidation, induction of insulin production, antiglycation etc. An in-depth study of phytonutrients with respect to functional, immunological as well as biochemical factors suggesting their efficacy, as well as safety in the management of diabetes, is rarely reported …

Our study thus highlights the abundance of clinical evidence of the efficiency of phytonutrients, and at the same time, the scarcity of clinically approved and marketed phytonutrients, as drugs, for the management of diabetes and related complications.”

The researchers are right. Natural treatments for diabetes complications are urgently needed. Deaths from diabetes complications and chronic respiratory diseases are only preceded by deaths from cardiovascular diseases and cancer in the developed world.12 Resveratrol’s antidiabetic properties as well as its potential antiaging effects, which I have written about before, were noted in the journal Cell.13

Resveratrol Noted for Chemoprevention of Many Cancers

Many natural substances have strong scientific indications of their ability to reduce the risk of cancer, but resveratrol may be one of the most impressive. In the United States National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, which maintains what is known as the “Pubmed” database, in 2019 there were 3,362 references for resveratrol as it relates to general cancer,14 546 to breast cancer,15 263 to colon cancer,16 249 to prostate cancer,17 230 to lung cancer18 and 106 to ovarian cancer.19

In 2018, researchers at the University of Geneva in Switzerland discovered that resveratrol could actually prevent lung cancer in some mice given lung cancer producing carcinogens.20

“We tried to prevent lung cancer induced by a carcinogen found in cigarette smoke by using resveratrol … in a mouse model,” said Muriel Cuendet, associate professor in the University of Geneva’s School of Pharmaceutical Sciences. A 45 percent decrease in tumor formation per mouse in the treated mice was seen, suggesting that, “resveratrol could therefore play a preventive role against lung cancer.”

The University of Geneva researchers surmised that the chemoprevention mechanism seen with resveratrol was likely related to the process by which cells program their own death and from which cancer cells escape, a mechanism called apoptosis.

Resveratrol May Protect Patients During Cancer Treatment

Imagine a natural substance that not only can prevent the risk of cancer, but minimize some of the notorious side effects of cancer treatments. Again, there is evidence favoring the benefits of resveratrol. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy, two common treatments for cancer, are often associated with depression, fatigue, anorexia, neuropathic pain and sleep disorders — and resveratrol may help. Researchers in a 2011 study in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine wrote:21

“During the past decade, increasing evidence has shown that the dysregulation of inflammatory pathways contributes to the expression of these symptoms. Cancer patients have been found to have higher levels of proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-6. The nuclear factor (NF)-?B is a major mediator of inflammatory pathways.

Therefore, anti-inflammatory agents that can modulate the NF-?B activation and inflammatory pathways may have potential in improving cancer-related symptoms in patients.

Because of their multitargeting properties, low cost, low toxicity and immediate availability, natural agents have gained considerable attention for prevention and treatment of cancer-related symptoms. How NF-?B and inflammatory pathways contribute to cancer-related symptoms is the focus of this review.

We will also discuss how nutritional agents such as curcumin, genistein, resveratrol, epigallocatechin gallate and lycopene can modulate inflammatory pathways and thereby reduce cancer-related symptoms in patients.”

Resveratrol May Reverse Side Effects of Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy can cause ovarian aging, early menopause and, in young women, infertility –– terrible side effects on top of the cancer itself. Yet, some research shows that resveratrol can reverse some of these deleterious effects.22 This is what researchers wrote in the journal Aging:

“We demonstrated that resveratrol (30 mg/kg/d) relieved oogonial stem cells loss and showed an attenuating effect on Bu/Cy-induced oxidative apoptosis in mouse ovaries, which may be attributed to the attenuation of oxidative levels in ovaries.

Additionally, we also showed that Res exerted a dose-dependent effect on oogonial stem cells and attenuated H2O2-induced cytotoxicity and oxidative stress injury by activating Nrf2 in vitro. Therefore, resveratrol could be of a potential therapeutic drug used to prevent chemotherapy-induced ovarian aging.”

Resveratrol Boosts a Chemotherapy Drug

In 2018, researchers found other cancer-related resveratrol benefits. “Pancreatic cancer (PC) is one of the top five leading causes of cancer-related deaths,” wrote researchers in the journal Cell Proliferation, yet “chemotherapeutic drugs can barely reach the tumour due to lack of blood supply.”

While the preferred chemotherapy drug is gemcitabine, resistance, both intrinsic and acquired, often occurs, even when little of the drug reaches the pancreatic tumor write the researchers. Resveratrol proves useful here too.23

Resveratrol enhances chemotherapy by suppressing the gemcitabine-induced “stemness” –– cancer cells that proliferate, differentiate, self-renew and resist anticancer therapies24 –– write the Cell Proliferation researchers:25

“A previous study reported that resveratrol enhanced the sensitivity of PC cells to gemcitabine via activating the AMPK signalling pathway. Moreover, a study performed in nude mice determined the effect of resveratrol plus gemcitabine in vivo.

According to that study, resveratrol potentiated the effect of gemcitabine on tumour growth. In our present study, we found that resveratrol enhanced the sensitivity of PC cells to gemcitabine via down?regulating SREBP1 expression.

Meanwhile, down-regulation of SREBP1 by resveratrol overcame the stemness induced by gemcitabine in both PC cell lines and the KPC mouse model.

Overall, our data provide evidence that resveratrol enhances sensitivity to gemcitabine and reverses the stemness induced by gemcitabine via down?regulating SREBP1 expression. These findings suggest that resveratrol is a potent chemotherapy sensitizer and that SREBP1 is a notable target for cancer treatment.”

Cleary, with its cancer-related properties and its recently confirmed ability to improve blood sugar, resveratrol is a valuable, natural substance with myriad wonderful uses.

EMFs Linked to Massive Decline in Global Health

The topic of electromagnetic field (EMF) dangers has been the subject of great debate over the years, but never has it seemed more pressing than now, as we face the transition into high-tech 5G technology.

With smart home devices and utility meters becoming part and parcel of our daily lives, the potential for harm is significant – and EMFs have already been linked to a massive decline in global health.

First, many people will argue that the sun naturally emits some EMFs, but our exposure to artificial EMFs has reached unprecedented heights.

Low-frequency EMF radiation, which encompasses that given off by smart meters, cell phones, Bluetooth, power lines, MRIs, and microwaves, has been listed as a class 2B probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer – right alongside indisputable dangers like lead and DDT.

Lead Exposure Kills More Americans Than Cancer: 412,000 Per Year

A bombshell study published in The Lancet medical journal finds that low-level lead exposure is responsible for the deaths of 412,000 Americans each year, primarily from lead-induced heart disease and ischaemic heart disease.

The study is entitled, “Low-level lead exposure and mortality in US adults: a population-based cohort study.” (The Lancet Public Health, VOLUME 3, ISSUE 4, PE177-E184, APRIL 01, 2018).

The alarming number of deaths from lead exposure as calculated by the study exceeds many estimates for the number of Americans killed each year by cancer. If this study is accurate, in other words, lead exposure is killing more Americans than cancer.

Lead is exhaustively documented to cause mental retardation, neurological disorders, skeletal diseases, reproductive toxicity (i.e. birth defects) and numerous other serious health problems.
