Was Grandpa A Crazy Old Geezer?
There is mental dysfunction that is serious. This is called dementia and there are two kinds: vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s. Vascular is caused by multiple little strokes resulting from broken blood vessels in the brain. It is common for elderly people to have silent stokes in their later years. They are silent because they go undiagnosed. The other is Alzheimer’s it occurs when a protein substance called beta-amyloid accumulates in critical areas of the brain this plaque is cholesterol laden. This is associated with cardiovascular disease, stroke, and adult onset Type 2 diabetes. These entire diseases cluster in the same population often times in the same people. Hypertension is a factor along with high blood cholesterol.
Genetics plays a role, but environmental factors play a key role and most probably the dominant one. Alzheimer’s rates are low in areas where fruits and vegetables are eaten. Western American diets have the most Alzheimer’s. Clearly, diet has an important voice in determining how well we think in our later years. What exactly are your going to do about it? Both can be corrected with diet. Antioxidant can shield our brains from this damage as in other diseases. Animal based breakfast, lunches, and dinners lack antioxidant shields and tend to increase free radical production and cause damage. Raw Liquid Light Smoothies are abundant in antioxidant and veggies is your easy answer.
Steak and Fries Upped Alzheimer’s 3.3 Times
Scientists conducted mental exams, assessed food intake for 2 years, and found that the people who consumed the most fat and saturated fat had the highest dementia due to vascular problems. The risk of getting the disease of Alzheimer’s was 3.3 times greater among people had high animal intakes. Smoothies decrease animal intake.
Do You Sunbath in the Winter?
Radical Revision Of The Sun The sun is not deadly. The leading vitamin D scientists in the world have started that traditional medicine was dead wrong when it comes to sun avoidance. (of course most of the studies were paid for over the years by companies that mad sun tan lotion and bug sprays) An itty bit of your Vitamin D does come from food, but most comes from a few hours a week we spend in the sun. The Vitamin D that we get in our skin travels to the liver where it is converted by enzymes and stored. This Vitamin D will last about 24 days. The next step is crucial. When you need some Vitamin D, enzymes convert the stored D to an active supercharged Vit. D. This new D is 1000 times more active and powerful than the storage stage vitamin D, but its only super duper for about six to eight hours.
Certain Disease Are More Common Without Sunshine
FACT -- Countries in the northern hemisphere have more Type 1 Diabetes, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Breast and Prostrate Cancer and Cancer in general.
MS is 100 times more prevalent in the north than at the equator. Similarly in Australia, the farther south you go, the more disease there is. Around the world, the farther one gets from the equator, and the sun, the more likely you are to find people with high blood pressure and heart disease. Lack of exposure to ultraviolet light actually contributes to the rise of these diseases in higher latitudes.
Have You Overlooked This Vitamin?
85% of Americans are deficient walking around with the symptoms of Rickets. 8 out of every 10 folks reading this book need to respond to this fact. It is simply not enough if you work indoors to walk to your car. Even folks who live in Colorado or Arizona have dangerously LOW blood levels of Vit. D.
THIS FACT REQUIRES ACTION ON YOUR PART!
Receptors that respond to Vitamin D have been found in almost every type of human cell, from your brain to your bones. Researchers keep finding health benefits from vitamin D in virtually every area of your body. Sure, long-term excessive exposure to sunlight can increase the risk of certain types of skin cancer. However, moderate sun exposure is less dangerous than sporadic sun exposure. Sun exposure without sunburn significantly decreases the risk of melanoma. Safe sun exposure is the key.
Assignment #5 Go outside and noontime and sit for 13 minutes with minimal clothes.
Diseases that improve with sunshine:

Why Can’t You Just Buy Vitamin D?
You must be aware of each player in the orchestra when it comes to the sunshine vitamin. The parathyroid makes the enzyme that goes to the liver to make the super D. There are other enzymes that help make the super D along the way. Without each player in the band, the finished product would not happen. Buying one synthetic component made in a lab will not make it all come together.
Scientist say that following the ridiculous recommendations to avoiding the sun has caused a minimum of 20,000 extra cancers per year, and it is far more likely the number actually exceeds 50,000. This just includes the deaths. It does not include heart disease or autoimmune diseases like MS or rheumatoid arthritis. First, it’s important to realize that vitamin D is not “just a vitamin,” but it has potent multiple effects on the body, it repairs and maintenances to your body. Each cell in your body has its own DNA library that contains information needed to deal with virtually every kind of problem it might encounter. Vitamin D opens the door for you body to all that information.
As a woman, your flesh needs vitamin D to access DNA that enables the response to estrogen properly. Without sufficient amounts of vitamin D, your breast cells cannot access it's healthy DNA files and their functions without the sun and cancer cells begin to grow. Do yourself a favor --- forget your 10k walks for Cancer go outside for 13 minutes everyday.
The major biologic function of Vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. It promotes bone mineralization in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones. It is the same old quantum thinking. 2 + 2 = 14. Without Vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, soft, or misshapen. Vitamin D prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults -- a disease that result in defects that weaken bones.
It Is All About Fear The TV and newspapers shout it out, it’s all about fear.
Don’t get me started, but everybody wants you unable to make a decision for yourself. It is about the economy, or the bird flu. They don’t want you to think for yourself. It’s absolutely tragic that dermatologists and sunscreen manufacturers have done such a thorough job of scaring people out of the sun – again their answer to this problem -- makes them money. Don't buy into their fears -- you don't need their products.
48 Hours Before the Sun Reaches Your Bloodstream?
If you thought as I did that the sunshine goes right into your body, you would be wrong. New evidence shows it takes up to 48 hours. Therefore, if you shower with soap, you will simply wash off some of the sunshine. Therefore, to optimize your D3 levels you need to delay washing. I can hear all you stinky folks out there gasping. What about B.O.? Not many folks live in caves like hermits. You only need to use soap underneath your arms and your groin area. You will just want to avoid soaping up the larger areas of your body that were exposed to the sun.
There are two primary forms of ultraviolet radiation from the sun. UVA and UVB. UVA has a frequency of 320 to 400 nanometers, and this causes you to tan. UVB is the good guy and its wavelengths are from 280 to 320. (A wavelength is the distance a wave has to travel before it starts repeating itself, and a nanometer is a millionth of a meter.) Because UVA is longer, it penetrates the skin and materials like window glass. When it goes into the skin, it causes free radical damage. UVA is quite constant during all the hours of daylight and though out the entire year. (That is why you can burn on a cloudy day.) By comparison, UVB waves (the good kind) are low in the morning, evening, and high at midday and can be filtered out by window glass. Take your sunbathing outside, sitting in a sunny window will not work.
Good UVB’s Cancel The Bad UVA’s
Malignant melanoma has been increasing at an exponential rate in indoor workers since before 1940. The reason is indoor exposure to UVA radiation. Unlike UVB, which is blocked by glass, UVA can pass though windows. UVA can cause cancerous mutations. To much sun or sunburn can break down the good Vitamin D formed in your skin after outdoor UVB exposure. Vitamin D from UVB are important defenses against melanoma when you have an equal amount of UVB to UVA.
3 Ways To Get Vit. A.
The best way is sunshine
Regular use of a safe healthy tanning UVB bed
Food high in Vit A
Vitamin pill -- Natural sunlight cannot be over accumulated and is never toxic. I'm just for the real thing.
The recommendation for Vit A is from 1000 to 5000 IU of Vitamin D daily. Vit A can become toxic. Why, because you store Vitamin D and don’t turn it into Super D until you need it. Oral supplements of Vitamin D can take six months or longer to normalize. When outside you get both UVA and UVB together. To obtain this amount from milk one would need to consume 50 glasses. With a multi-vitamin, you would need more than 10 tablets. Neither is advisable. Supplements become ineffective when eaten with calcium, or protein.
Shedding Light On Best Sun Food Sources
Food source are very limited and that is why I am stressing to you the need to be outside.
Remember we need 5000 IU daily.
Cod Liver Oil, 1 Tablespoon 1360 IU
Mackerel, cooked, 3 1/2 oz: 345 IU
Salmon 3 ½ oz 360 IU
Tuna salad 1 cup 350 IU
Sardines, canned in oil, drained, 3 1/2 oz: 270 IU
Fortified synthetic chemical Vitamin D Milk, whole, 1 c has 98 IU
Fortified chemical Butter, 1 Tabs has 60 IU
Fortified chemical Dry cereal, 3/4 cup is 40-50 IU
One whole egg yolk is 25 IU
Holly How Much Sun – Be Exact?
Glad you asked.
The key point here is to optimize your vitamin D intake by subjecting a large portion of you body to13 minutes of safe outdoor noon sun exposure, being careful not to get sunburned. You need this about 3 times a week. If you know exactly how much sun, it takes for you to turn your skin pink, then one-fourth of this time will be needed for you to spend in the sun, about 2 to 3 times a week. This is about 5,000 IU.
Who Needs More Sun Than Most?
Pregnant ladies this is very critical
Elderly Cavemen who never go outside – their skin has lost the ability to generate Vit. D
Darker skinned folks have higher melanin and this blocks UVB
Sunscreen Blocks Your Body Production Of Vit D In fact, sunscreens reduce vitamin D production by 99%. This has health consequences especially if your only out in the sun once in a great while. BAM More lies to sell products
Expose The Sunscreen Smokescreen
Sunscreens are toxic because they contain ocytl methozycinnamate. OMC will kill mouse cells even at low doses. OMC is found in 90% of the brands. Another toxic chemical used is butyl -ethoxydibenzoylmethane. These chemicals are quickly absorbed through out the biggest organ the skin and circulated by the blood stream. Dioxybenzone and oxybensone are the most powerful free radical generator known to man. Two more products that are xenoestrogens to watch out for are sodium laurel sulfate (a thickener) and parabens (harsh chemical preservative.) CA-CHING Don’t buy it and save $.
Cardiovascular studies have found that 13 minutes, 3 times a week in the sun will improve cardiovascular fitness scores by 19%. Many studies show that D increases the size and number of Type II (fast twitch) muscle fibers. It has also been show to increase musculoskeletal performance in older individuals. Vitamin D will make you faster, stronger, and will improve your balance and timing. In order to understand how Vitamin D affects athletic performance you need to remember that Vitamin D is not really a vitamin but rather a steroid in the same way that testosterone is a steroid.
