Five ingredients that poison your brain

Recommended Posts

(NaturalNews) There is no shortage of things driving us crazy in the world today, but there are some things that could do it in a shorter amount of time. These gut disturbing, liver compromising, and brain damaging ingredients have come from the "infinite genius" of man, and have clearly ruined our ability to think clearly.

Avoid these 5 ingredients scrupulously, and watch your brain function improve:
 

Gluten

Gluten is a common protein molecule found in wheat, barley, rye, kamut, and spelt. This sticky protein binds to the small intestinal wall where it can cause digestive and immune system disorders. Celiac disease is the most common condition associated with gluten sensitivity. However, there is also a condition termed non-celiac, gluten sensitivity (NCGS), and it is a major factor in the inflammatory disorders of the brain and nervous system.

Studies have shown many associations between gluten sensitivity and disorders in every part of the neurological system including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Gluten has been shown to be a big trigger in psychiatric disorders, cognitive impairment, dementia, and virtually every other neurological disorder.
 

Artificial Sweeteners

Whether it is aspartame (or AminoSweet), sucralose (Splenda), or saccharin (Equal, Sweet 'N Low), artificial sweeteners so popular due to their zero calorie marketing, have been poisoning brains for decades. Aspartame is a combination of chemicals, namely aspartic acid (an amino acid with excitatory effects on brain cells), methanol, and phenylalanine, and when broken down produces a compound that is a powerful brain-tumor-causing chemical.

Aspartame consumption causes a variety of symptoms including anxiety attacks, slurred speech, depression, and migraines. It and other artificial sweeteners can be found in sodas, yogurt, chewing gum, cooking sauces, tabletop sweeteners, flavored water, cereal, and sugar free products.
 

Monosodium glutamate (MSG)

MSG is a form of concentrated salt added to foods to enhance flavor. It tricks the taste buds and the brain into thinking food tastes delicious, but as an excitotoxin, it triggers the brain to produce excess quantities of the feel-good drug, dopamine. Unfortunately, the good feelings don't last, but the side effects do. Excitotoxins have been linked to brain damage and other neurological diseases including Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, dementia, MS, lupus, and more.

Be on the look out for MSG in any processed products, including "healthy" snacks, salad dressing, barbecue sauce, bouillon cubes, and canned soups and vegetables.
 

Refined Sugar

Refined sugar has become one of the most prolific ingredients in our food, and one of the most dangerous. Its constant consumption has been linked to many different health problems, all which have a negative effect on the brain.

Refined sugar consumption suppresses brain derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF, a very important growth hormone for the brain. This factor triggers new connections between neurons in the brain that are vital for memory function. Studies have shown low BDNF levels in patients with depression and schizophrenia, and the consumption of sugar could exacerbate those conditions by further contributing to those low levels.

Refined sugar also increases inflammation, which can disrupt the digestive and immune systems. If this inflammation is chronic, it can lead to a higher risk of depression and schizophrenia. Dr. Ilardi, associate professor of psychology at University of Kansas, encourages depressed patients to remove refined sugar from their diets, and those who were willing to comply reported significant improvements in mental clarity and mood.
 

Fluoride

The decision to add fluoride to public drinking water has had perhaps one of the most dangerous and widespread effects on our overall health, most notably the brain.

The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) reported a study that found fluoride was linked to lower IQ, even at ranges added to U.S. water supplies. One study sponsored by UNICEF found that IQ was reduced at just 0.88 mg/l of fluoride, a level that is added to U.S. drinking water systems and considered within the optimal range.

FAN also stated that 34 studies now link fluoride to lower IQ levels in humans, while other studies link it to learning and memory impairment, fetal brain damage, and altered neurobehavioral function.

These 5 ingredients can be relatively easy to avoid, with the right motivation and knowledge. However, some of them can be tricky. To learn more about MSG and the dozens of other names it can go under, read What is MSG? Side Effects Explained and see this article for brain health (check out the brain tonic recipe). To find out how to choose a water solution that is free of fluoride, check out this Guide To Drinking Water. See the first source below for more on brain health.

Good post. I'd like to add to this list:

 

1. Public Education

2. Main Stream Media

 

Both are known to liquefy any cerebral tissue!

 

On another note, just got back from a site visit to the sponsors of the cancer seminar last month. They have a new Goleic product that appears to be much more powerful than the regular Gc-MAF. In clinical trials right now, so I have to wait. However, in 1 month when applied to HIV + patients, they are seeing a HUGE drop in viral load and a very strong increase in CD4 levels. Also, I was able to get some "pico" iodine. I think we are all aware of "nano-sliver" which works great for so many things. Well, a Russian group (mostly physicist) have develop an even smaller particle-sized delivery method. Crosses brain-barrier, follows nerve pathways and can influence neuro-transmitter production within the brain. Reports claim improvements in immunity, hormones, eyes, etc. And, the best part, it is REALLY CHEAP! I am doing my own "clinical trial" on it right now and will report back. Name is this stuff: NAME. Hahahaha. (Those crazy Russians are so inventive with the labeling!)

Cheers and to your health....

Oh, I forgot to mention, this is NOT the same product I wrote about in my last post (that is called B.I.G) which is a 4th generation Gc-MAF. That is a capsule and is nano-sized Gc-MAF. This new stuff is from Dr. Ruggiero's company, injection form only, and is thought to be 50 x stronger than current (not nano-sized stuff now) Gc-MAF.

Interesting stuff coming. Usually, they allow docs to buy it, try it and then will market it to the general public over time. So hold on!

So, to clear it up to make sense of what I wrote:

4th generation Gc-MAF, capsules, is called B.I.G

newer Gc-MAF, injection-form, call REMUN (or something  like that)

pico-iodine product, drops, called NAME (NOT from Dr. Ruggerio's group. From a Russian group) and not designed to treat cancer, etc.

 

Sorry, if I confused anyone.

If I can throw my hat into the ring. If you do a little research on the above named items, you will see that they all create oxidative stress in the system overall.  There are a couple there that are even worse though.

 

Aspartame is shown to cause changes on the celular level to brain cells, inducing the cells to "sucide" more frequently than they should.

 

"This study provides a scientific evidence to conclude that aspartame is toxic to the body system and particularly in brain it increases the free radicals and triggers the apoptosis."

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2213231714000640

Prolonged exposure to MSG has been shown to be toxic to brain neurons - again primarily by - you guessed it - oxidative stress.

 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2802046/

 

These 2 are really culprits for killing off the mitochondria in the cells also.  I've talked about those "little powerhouses" a lot, but just recently ran into something that I've just started taking (I mean just yesterday)

 

Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) has been shown to activate cell signaling pathways which can cause the cell to actually create new mitochondria. PQQ can also protect the brain against neurotoxins - including mercury!
 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrroloquinoline_quinone

 

I've just started on 10 mg a day - going to try it for 90 days and see how things go.  I really believe that this coupled with a redox supplement to help reduce the oxidative stress in the body could be a good one-two punch for my immune sytem and overall health. 

Diet, exercise and breathing - of course - also play great roles, but I'm thinking these 2 supplements could be game changers for chronic illnesses associated with oxidative stress.

"Overproduction of free radicals can cause oxidative damage to biomolecules, (lipids, proteins, DNA), eventually leading to many chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetics, rheumatoid arthritis, post-ischemic perfusion injury, myocardial infarction, cardiovascular diseases, chronic inflammation, stroke ..."
