New cases of diabetes continue to increase exponentially every five to ten years. The toll this disease takes on millions of unsuspecting children and adults places the illness in a class by itself as it is the primary cause of death from diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Excess glucose in circulation slowly damages virtually every cell and molecular structure in our body as it makes critical proteins, enzymes and fats dysfunctional and significantly increases the risk of arterial plaque development.

A Multifocal Strategy for Cancer Control
Cancer can be – and often is – a wily opponent. In large measure, this reflects the fact that it is a constantly moving target. Cancer is heavy-handed. There is nothing subtle at all about the presence of a malignant tumor in your kidney or lung. Cancer makes no attempt to veil its threat. It is a disease that can gather momentum quickly and attack with frightening ferocity. Only a concerted and combined effort can repel such an attack. It is necessary to combat it from every possible angle. (more…)
Jabbing our newborns with vitamin K injections significantly increases our children’s chances of developing childhood cancer. In a study of two hospitals, researchers found almost a two-fold risk of leukemia for children who had received intramuscular vitamin K given universally at one hospital compared to the other hospital that did not promote the jab.
The poisoning and destruction of the infants immune system starts in the first hours of life, even before they clobber the newborn with the dangerous hepatitis B vaccine. (more…)
Our overzealous medical community has taken the blessed event of childbirth and turned it into a medical procedure with a whole different set of risks and side effects. This medicalization of childbirth turns our newborns into medical experiments and permanently hooks them into a life of medical dependency.
Where it begins
The assault on the infant begins with the invasive ultrasound. The FDA warned in 2004, “ultrasound is a form of energy, and even at low levels, laboratory studies have shown it can produce physical effect in tissue, such as jarring vibrations and a rise in temperature.” These temperature increases can cause birth defects and result in central nervous system damage. A large randomized trial conducted by the RADIUS Study Group found the use of ultrasound did not result in improved outcome in pregnancies. (more…)
In 1935, a scientist in Copenhagen observed that newly hatched chickens receiving a diet containing all of the known essential nutrients were developing a hemorrhagic disease. The problem was believed to be related to a decrease in prothrombin, a substance necessary for normal clotting of blood. The Danish scientist named this newly discovered antihemorrhagic factor vitamin K or “Koagulationsvitamin.” Vitamin K refers to a group of three vitamins called the quinones. The K vitamins have a central ring structure with their varying pharmacokinetics being determined by varying side chains. Phytonadione (K1) is the only K vitamin commercially available in the United States. It is available by prescription in either tablet form or injection. (more…)
The big lie pertains mostly to calcium supplementation. Calcium from raw whole foods is beneficial and necessary. But all those processed foods fortified with calcium or supplements high in elemental* calcium are likely to do more harm than good. (more…)
Last month,, we began out conversation with Dr. Leon Schurgers about vitamin K2 with a discussion of the “calcium paradox,” in which so many people have harmful calcium deposits form in their arteries at the same time that the calcium content of their bones is decreasing. This calcium paradox is not a result of too little calcium in the diet, but of too little vitamin K2 that largely controls where the calcium goes. The objective is to keep calcium in our bones, not in our arteries. This is the role of vitamin K—putting calcium in its place! (more…)
