Hi...Cabbage (raw or boiled) is a home remedy for obesity. Dinesh
Most hospitals don't cook any more (just as schools also) but have the food catered and brought into the hospital. Our schools' meals are more atrocious than hospsitals' meals, by far. I would have laughed when I read that schools had petitioned the federal government and got an ok on counting the catsup packet served along with fries as a vegetable, if it hadn't been so pathetic and such potential of damaging our children. I have visited several elementary, middle & high schools over the past few years and seldom saw anything that wasn't grease-laden, sugar laden and most likely also MSG laden. Now with all the hype on the obesity epidemic in our kids (as well as our adultsl) they will probably also be laden with both MSG and aspartame. I agree with Ted that most of our obesity can be attributed to damage from MSG. We will probably see Alzheimer's moving on down into childhood then, as used to be called adult onset diabetes mellitus has, because I believe neurologist Russell L. Blaylock knows what he's talking about when he says that the most deadly form of MSG is any hydrolyzed plant (corn, soy, etc) protein because it kills off both calcium and sodium transport cells of the brain and central nervous system. It seems that separately, they only kill off one type of neuron.
EC: MSG goes under many aliases, one of the most common being "hydrolyzed vegetable protein," an additive used to increase the protein content of a wide variety of foods.
Hello Ted, I wanted to mention that I recently discovered that I have a link to boils and high fructose corn syrup, it happens every time. I try to avoid it like the plague. I have to be careful about reading labels... now that we need corn for fuel, I think we should get rid of that stuff. Do you know of any advantages of keeping it around now that we've found it to "help" with obesity?? thanks,"
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Karen: The worst sugar I can imagine is the corn syrup fructose, found in nearly all the soft drinks and many in prepared foods and ingredients, such as ketchup.
Technically speaking there is worse sugar than this, but luckily is not sold in the market such as ribose sugar, for example.
Bacteria which causes boils need sugar to fuel their growth and nothing grows better than fructose syrup (or corn syrup) or even glucose is just as bad. Sucrose can place some blame, but unfortunately the present classification using sucrose as highest on glycemic index is not exactly a correct one.
The way to kill the boils is to use xylitol added to the foods instead of any sugar. Xylitol kills certain bacteria and fungus which caused the boils, but alkalizing in an important one. Of course the xylitol needs to be taken somewhat between 1/2 teaspoon divided dose of 3 times per day, with sufficient water and sufficient alkalinity from baking soda, which is seen at least 1/2 teaspoon in 1/2 glass of water usually 2 to 3 times a day.
Borax remedies can block negative actions of sugar on the boils with borax in 1% h2O2 topical application, or even 1/4 teaspoon of borax in 1 liter of drinking water to block the sugar metabolism caused by the boils, thus reducing the condition too.
Although vitamin B1 with sufficient alkalinity of the body and vitamin B3 and B6, vanadium, chromium and tungsten helps control sugar levels too. A lot of remedies I posted has a lot to do with these organism as the causing many of the sicknesses today.
Many research studies point to high fructose diet as the cause of obesity in U.S., which is why schools are banning the use of soft drinks. I can't see any benefit of the use of fructose, although I would prefer the use of polyol sugars, especially xylitol, but sometimes erythritol or mannitol. I used xylitol all the time as a mouthwash, or sometimes to reduce problems of autoimmunity too."
