P.S.  The MMS has been really helpful with my husband's skin.  He started having problems about 17 years ago when he was sixty.  The least bump or scrape made huge bruises or literally tore off the top layer of his skin.  Doctors were no help. I was told to give him Vitamin K, but that didn't do much.  I was scared to death because I was afraid if he got in an accident with that kind of skin he could bleed to death before anyone could get to him.  But since I've had him on MMS, bruises are much smaller and heal much faster.  We haven't seen any scrapes.  HIs skin literally looks like it's stronger.

Ok thank u. Done the mms baths today on the little ones. First time in about 2 years since they went to sleep without itching non stop!

New Life!

I’m loving your write up on nutrition and have a huge turnaround in my health thanks to you and Aajonus vonderplantz. It has taken a year to see the results. All so much worth it. Life is looking up again. Cheers mate.

No more Autism and Pain!

Tooth infection

WildCamperVanMan. TV 1 year ago

mms got rid of my tooth infection id had for almost 18 months. nothing natural like ginger, garlic etc touched it. mms was my last ditch attempt of curing it before i had no option but to go to big pharma poisons. this week im putting my nan who is 89 on it for her arthritis.


Actually my arthritis does feel a little bit better. So I guess I will just keep doing what I'm doing and get better and better, LOL! 

Tumors gone!

I have been on the MMS 2 for 2 weeks and I was on the MMS with DMSO for 4 weeks. The stuff is killing my stomach.  But I had 3 large tumors in my neck from Lymphoma  and 2 of the 3 are gone. I was told by my oncologist that I seemed to be back to normal. I showed her the remnant of the remainder tumor she said it seemed normal but I do not feel that way as of now.  Is there a maintenance program I can use to keep going and get my stomach back. I will say this that the MMS was dine intervention for me.  I came home tired and worn out every day from work and put on Youtube with Bob Ross who paints pictures with big paint brushes. His voice will put me to sleep faster than anything else.  I woke up from a 2  1/2  hour nap and a man with a white straw hat and big turquoise was talking MMS upon waking up. I watched and here I am.  I say divine intervention.  Please help me with a continued maintenance program till I know and feel myself it is all gone.  Oh one more thing do you have contacts in Germany.  Thank You Very Much!

I want to thank all involved in this ministry

Hi there -thank you so much for your work. I have cured myself thanks to your information and now a facebook friend in Uganda has a son with an unconfirmed skin problem all over his scalp and is seeking help. I am desperatly trying to connect him with somebody in Uganda - I have been to the G2 site but it says it is down for maintenance. If you have the time I would so greatly appreciate any info I could pass on to my friend in regards to obtaining some sacraments there. God bless, Kaley

Ok Kaley, What were you cured from? Yes Give me your e-mail and I'll have samula contact you ok?

Thank you so much!! I had years of deep set impetigo/MRSA/staph infections, parasites and more. Most importantly my utter despair and hopelessness at life - this gave me hope, a physical cure, and another chance at life. Bless you and everything you do -

thank you so much x



I came across this report that I found interesting. It's about a 55-year-old man who attempted suicide . He had ingested about 100 mL of 28% sodium chlorite solution, 0.75 L of whiskey, and ibuprofen (12 tablets of 400 mg), after which he had attempted to hang himself. He was treated in hospital and survived.  

That's a lot of MMS but I'm thinking that maybe it helped to negate the toxicity of the whiskey and the ibuprofen he took :​)

Thanks for all you do to help all the suffering people ​​around the world.​

​ By the way, I thought your book was excellent. It's just what I always thought we need to explain to people why they are sick and how to get better without a doctor.​

Why do we have the “endocannabinoid” system in the body complete with receptors?

      Never mind why is the endocannabinoid system in the body BUT, have you ever heard of the ENDO-CANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)? I feel a great obligation to proclaim TRUTH to the world and the NEED to know about and understand the amazing systems in the body. There is a major craze going on all over the world as more and more evidence comes out about the medicinal properties of Cannabinoids or CBD’s. Do you really know what a CBD does? Are ALL CBD’s equal. IS THC really important? Why can CBD be sold without a license and THC can’t? Is it because THC is doing most of the medicinal work or are all the cannabinoids needs in synergy to work better?

As you look into adding Cannabis to your life for pain, preventative maintenance, diabetes treatment, neurological issues, any many other health benefits and, YES cure for cancer, you need to know what you are actually allowing into your body. I’m sure everyone wants to know the best most efficacious Cannabinoid and how to take it into the body.

There are many ways and each has its own benefits.

      I personally was introduced to cannabis at a very young age of 11 in the 1968 by a Vietnam vet that brought some “Marijuana” back directly from Vietnam in his dufflebag! My friends and I were curious, Hey, it was the 60’s! Hahahaha! Anyways, I tried it and NOTHING! I wasn’t floating high or anything like that but, my friends were laughing and said they were high. I found out later on that some people NEED to literally “grow more CBD receptors” or have receptors that aren’t functioning correctly because of some blocked. TOXINS? I think I tried a few more times before I finally “got high”. So, that means that I have been “around” the use of Cannabis personally and with thousands of people that have used Cannabis without ANYONE overdosing, because it is non-toxic! And if you take too much you’ll pass out and wake up and eat the whole kitchen!!! Hahahaha.

      So, for 49+ years I’ve been VERY familiar with Cannabis and its side effects on me personally and others I’ve observed. I guess that makes me a VERY informed LAB RAT when it relates to how Cannabis effects my body. You will see from the videos and articles I’ve included in this newsletter that the majority of CLINICAL STUDIES have only been done on Mice and Monkeys, BUT mostly mice! Well, I submit to the world that millions, maybe BILLIONS, have been ingesting, smoking and eating Cannabis for thousands of years with documented evidence and even on cave walls of man consuming it. Many religions around the world as well as herbal “medicine men” have raved about its healing benefits from epilepsy, pain, anxiety, diabetes, reproductive benefits, relaxation, etc.

      I have been teaching the use of Cannabis, how to make it as well as how to take it as a sacrament of the Genesis II Church Of Health and Healing over 7 years with many people who have told me of incredible results. I’m not talking about an “add-on” to the other sacraments but a “stand alone” sacrament for anything from cancer to pain, from anxiety to autism and from diabetes to digestive issues. Just about EVERY neurological problem or better said, injury from toxins, has seen incredible results. To get those GREAT benefits though you have to have the whole plant and not the isolated compounds. You will see some benefits, but they will soon taper off as does isolated, artificial and synthesis vitamin and mineral supplements.

Our Bodies were designed to consume food in its whole form because all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes are bound together in one package and work synergistically to deliver the nutrition your body needs. Synthetic supplements give isolated or fractionated pieces of the whole. It is simply not the same. You’re not getting the full benefit nature intended. This is the same when it comes to THC and CBD’s. They all HAVE TO work together to get the most benefits. THC does things on its own as well as CBD’s, but when ALL WORK together much more happens and that is what we know right now! If one molecule is missing, or in the wrong form or the wrong amount, entire chains of metabolic processes will not proceed normally. We see this by the ways that vitamins and minerals work together. Vitamins and minerals are not functionally separable. They make each other work. Example: vitamin D is necessary for the body to absorb calcium. Copper is necessary for vitamin C activity. And so on. Mineral deficiencies can cause vitamin deficiencies, and vice versa.

The human body was not designed to work with isolated molecules but to work together with the whole molecular structure -SEE Last week’s G2Voice Broadcast for more facts about vitamin and mineral supplements and how they work in the body:

I can now tell everyone after 7 years of PERSONALLY helping people with all kinds of illnesses of the body,people recover faster when people did drops under the tongue and suppositories at night with correctly prepared  WHOLE plant Cannabis oil!

NOTE: We don’t sell or take donations for it by the way!

We only teach people how to make it themselves, i.e. “SELFCARE”. We interviewed Rick Simpson, the Phoenix Tears author and speaker about Cannabis oil. He is a great guy and a great human that wants to get this information out to the world also! His wife was cured by the G2Sacaments of a Urinary Tract Infection or UTI that the doctors wanted to treat with Chemo! With the Protocols of our Church, she was CURED in less than two weeks! Rick has seen over 5,000 cured from cancer with his cannabis oil recipe.

The battle is on to keep the benefits of the Cannabis plant  from being destroyed by Big Pharma/Medical industry and Governments! They want to control it and make of the profits what they can while they will ultimately  destroy its benefits to get people back to their TOXIC DRUGS!

The ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM is an incredible system that only, until  1964,  has any SCIENTIFIC study formally been done by Prof. Dr. Rafael Mechoulam (Rafi) in Israel.  He discovered the active ingredient in cannabis called THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. There have been found over 100 more cannabinoids and cannabinoid-like compounds now identified and probably more to come.

This is a relativity NEW field of Laboratory research that is finding a lot of interesting things about the ENDO-CANNABINOID system by reverse engineering BUT, much more is coming as we understand the design of the body. What I am saying is that this is NOT an exhaustive study on this topic. Scientists are learning more truths each day about how complex the body was designed so that we might never know EXACTLY what is going on in the body with this system. But as far as we know in humans, it is doing great things and works GREAT with the Genesis II Church Sacraments as long as not entering the stomach during daily protocols.


NOTE: DO NOT EAT ANY CANNABIS DURING THE DAILY PROTOCOLS FOR IT IS HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS WHICH WILL NEUTRALIZE CHLORINE DIOXIDE! Sub-lingual dosing for pain during the daily dosing is ok because it is assimilated into the blood differently as well as smoking or vaporizing Cannabis.


Let’s familiarize everyone with a few terms to know in regard to this topic.

The Scientist Who Discovered THC Has Never Smoked Weed

Raphael Mechoulam made cannabis’ biggest breakthrough in 1964, but has still never taken a puff.

by Zach Harris

86 year-old Raphael Mechoulam is known as the “father of marijuana research.” In the 1960’s the college professor headed up cannabis research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and discovered the compounds THC and CBD. But while Mechoulam was one of the first people to discover the incredible importance of marijuana, he has gone his whole life without ever smoking, eating, vaping or using cannabis in any form or fashion.

In an interview with Culture magazine, Mechoulam admitted that his lifelong research and dedication to cannabis has never lead the scientist to twist up a doobie or pack a bong.

“I have never used it. First of all, I am still interested but as I did research and we had official supply of cannabis, obviously if we had used it for non-scientific reasons if people had come to know about it that would have stopped our work. Basically, neither I nor my students were interested.”

Mechoulam also told reporters about the days before cannabis was popular and how we was able to - semi-illegally - obtain the hashish that lead to the groundbreaking discovery of THC.

“I went to the administrative head of my institute and asked him whether he had a contact with the police and he said, ‘Sure, no problem.’ He called the number two person at the police at that time. They had been in the army together or something of that sort. From the other side I could hear him saying, ‘Is he reliable?’ And the head of the institute said, ‘Of course he’s reliable.’ So he invited me over to the police, and I took five kilos of hashish.” Mechoulam told Culture. “It broke the laws. It turned out I was not allowed to have it, and he was not allowed to give it to me. It was the Ministry of Health that should have permitted it, but in a small country, I went to the Ministry of Health, and I apologized, and any time I needed more hashish I went to the Ministry of Health and had no problems.”

Despite his smoking abstinence, Mechoulam hasn’t slowed down his participation in the ever-expanding world of Israeli cannabis. Even into his retirement, the scientist still consults with Israel’s Ministry of Health and helped push the government agency to approve the country’s nationwide medical marijuana program.

Mechoulam continues to work with the Ministry of Health to better serve Israel’s medical marijuana patients, but it still doesn’t appear that the groundbreaking chemist will be sparking up anytime soon.

What Is THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) And What Does It Do?

We talk a lot about THC. Here’s everything you need to know about this incredible chemical compound.

 Published 3 months ago

Adam Drury 


Throughout its life, a cannabis plant will produce more than 400 different chemical compounds. But the presence of just one of those hundreds of compounds has sealed cannabis’ fate for nearly a century, making it one of the most persecuted plants on the planet. And all because this one compound happens to interact with the human body in such a way as to produce a complex signature of effects—a “high” unlike any other. Its name is THC. What is THC and what does THC stand for? Tetrahydrocannabinol. More importantly, what does THC do to the brain?

THC is one of the 113 chemical compounds found only in the plant genus Cannabis, which scientists call cannabinoids. THC, however, is unique among all the rest for one, massively important reason: it’s the most potently psychoactive.

But exactly what is THC, and why does it produce the wide range of pleasurable (and sometimes not-so-pleasing) effects it does? What does THC do to the brain? How does it affect the body? Is it safe, or as dangerous as heroin, like the federal government says?

Decades of unanswered questions, confusion, and misinformation have distorted the public’s understanding of cannabis and the psychoactive cannabinoid that has made it the most popular illicit drug in the world.

This comprehensive guide to THC aims to set the record straight. In addition to essential information about THC, we focus in on the importance of the cannabinoid for recreational and medical users, survey the current research on the drug, and share our thoughts about what the future holds for tetrahydrocannabinol.

THC 101: The Fundamentals Of Tetrahydrocannabinol

Let’s start with the basics: what is THC and what does THC stand for?

THC is an acronym for the unwieldy and eight-syllable full name of the chemical compound in weed that makes you high. Tetrahydrocannabinol. Its chemical name is (–)-trans-delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol if you want to get really technical.

The word is imposing at first, but with a little practice, you’ll find it rolls off the tongue. Its elegance is in its meter, three trochees followed by an iambic flourish. TE-tra-HY-dro-CAN-na-bin-OL. See? Easy!

Now that you sound like an expert, let’s actually make you into one. Here’s your fundamental fact sheet about THC.

delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol Is Psychoactive

For most people, psychoactivity is as awesome as it sounds. The word refers to the way THC stimulates or “activates” specific psychological responses generally, but not always, associated with euphoria. In short, THC is psychoactive because it affects the mind.

Of course, the mind and body are connected, and therefore the psychoactive effects of cannabis are both psychological and physiological.

We have the pioneering scientist Dr. Allyn Howlett to thank for making the discovery that showed us why. In 1988, she uncovered where and how THC was attaching to the brain. In short, she discovered the secret link between tetrahydrocannabinol and the human endocannabinoid system (ECS).

THC And The Endocannabinoid System: The Secret To Why You’re High


Tetrahydrocannabinol? Endocannabinoid system? Understanding the biochemistry of cannabis definitely requires picking up some new vocabulary. But they’re key to understanding what THC is and how it affects us.

In fact, the key makes a good explanatory metaphor. The ECS is like a vast system of locks, or chemical receptors, and keys, the chemicals that bind to them. Some keys only work on a specific lock. Other keys fit in multiple locks. The human body has evolved to produce its own keys, or “endogenous cannabinoids,” for those locks.If you’re a runner, you already know all about this. That runner’s high you crave is caused by anandamide (the key) binding with cannabinoid receptors (the locks) in your nervous system. Anandamide is THC’s endogenous equivalent. Now that’s getting high on your own supply!

Amazingly, the cannabinoids the cannabis plant produces happen to bind to those same receptors. They’re keys from nature that fit the locks in our ECS. That doesn’t mean humans evolved for cannabis, however. Rather, humans have taken advantage of the fact for enjoyment and health. And we’ve been doing it for millennia.

What Does THC Do To The Brain?

When you consume cannabis, you introduce its cannabinoids into your body. Once inside, they’re metabolized and enter the bloodstream. From there, they bind to receptors CB1 and CB2, which are concentrated in the brain and central nervous system.

Astonishingly, there are 10 times more CB1 receptors in the brain than μ-opioid receptors, which are responsible for the effects of morphine. CB2 receptors hang out exclusively on the cells of the immune system. For that reason, cannabis has significant medicinal applications, in addition to its more popular recreational uses.

So what does THC do to the brain? THC isn’t the only cannabinoid that can bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors. But when it does, the ECS stimulates the release of dopamine in the brain, creating a sense of euphoria and relaxation. In short, a high.

How THC Gets You High

CB1 receptors throughout the brain and nervous system modulate movement, memory, cognition, sensory perceptions, and even time perception. According to NIDA, tetrahydrocannabinol “over activates” the functions typically regulated by the ECS, like mood, appetite, cognition, and perception.

Ultimately, it’s the sum total of all of these changes that creates the overall sensation we love to call “being high”. And it accounts for why everyone’s high is unique, and why highs can vary from buzzed to baked to way, way too high. There are just so many factors at play. Changes that feel good to someone might make someone else feel uncomfortable.

Then, there are the more mysterious effects of delta-9-THC on the brain. Remember anandamide, our body’s own version of THC? Researchers believe anandamide may have something to do with our brain’s ability to forget.

At first glance, this fact seems to confirm the oft-cited concern that cannabis use reduces short-term memory capabilities. Yet the power to forget can be incredibly beneficial for those suffering from traumatic memories, like people with PTSD. Hence the promising findings that tetrahydrocannabinol can treat a range of psychological disorders related to trauma.

What Does Tetrahydrocannabinol Do To The Body?

THC doesn’t just bind to receptors in your brain. Their network extends throughout the body. Most of the bodily sensations you experience when you consume cannabis are actually the result of changes in your brain. But cannabinoids can also act on ECS receptors all through the body, creating a range of beneficial effects.

Importantly, there are receptors in the immune system, which is why THC can act as a powerful anti-inflammatory, but can also reduce the immune system’s effectiveness.

In the digestive tract, THC can stimulate the release of the “hunger hormone” ghrelin and help ease nausea. A little morsel of cannabis history: despite prohibition, the FDA has approved a synthetic form of THC as an appetite stimulant and an antiemetic for AIDS and chemotherapy patients.

There are even CB2 receptors in our skin. Cannabis topical creams are quickly becoming popular as pain relievers and skincare products. The ability to absorb THC into the skin means people can use the cannabinoid for therapeutic benefits without the psychotropic effects.

The Medicinal Benefits Of Tetrahydrocannabinol

Since THC has become synonymous with marijuana in our everyday lexicon, it can be easy to overlook or discount the medicinal benefits of the cannabinoid. And while it’s true that the chemical is highly prized by recreational users, researchers continue to identify innovative ways to use it as a medicine.


We’ve already mentioned how THC affects the body’s immune system: it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory drug. Inflammation is an underlying factor that contributes to or complicates a wide range of diseases, which means tetrahydrocannabinol has a role to play in treating all of them.

From autoimmune diseases to neuro-degenerative disorders like multiple sclerosis to depression, cannabis has demonstrated its potency as a therapeutic treatment.


The potential to use cannabis as part of a cancer treatment is one of the most promising—and most overstated—of THC’s benefits. It’s far more likely that a physician will prescribe cannabis as a treatment for the harsh side-effects of cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.

However, studies are beginning to identify the “cancer-killing” properties of tetrahydrocannabinol. According to researchers who’ve investigated the effects of cannabis on tumors in animals, THC can cause cancer cells to eat themselves. The results are incredible: shrunken tumors and a reduction in the prevalence of cancer cells.

Mood Disorders

In addition to helping people with PTSD process and forget traumatic memory associations, tetrahydrocannabinol’s short-term effects can improve mood disorders like depression and anxiety. Some have even suggested THC can help people with ADHD.

There is somewhat of a double-edged sword to using THC as a mood disorder treatment, though. Some studies have found that long-term effects of cannabis use can hasten the onset of certain psychological disorders. If you’re more prone to schizophrenia or psychosis, regular cannabis use can make you more vulnerable to those symptoms.

Chronic Pain

One of the most popular medical uses for THC is as a pain-reliever. And compared to the dangerous and addictive opioids that are flooding the pharmaceutical market in the United States, cannabis is incredibly safe.

From temporary muscle soreness to constant neuropathic pain, THC’s ability to reduce information and stimulate the release of dopamine—just like opioids—make it such a powerful medicine for treating pain and related symptoms.

Sleep Disorders

Inducing euphoria and relaxation, two effects associated with THC’s recreational use, are also helpful for treating sleep disorders. Around 1 out of every 3 people experience some form of insomnia. And while prescription sleep aids can help in the short term, they’re ineffective and sometimes dangerous with long-term use.

But the old cliche of the “midnight toker” has emerged for exactly this reason. Cannabis relaxes both mind and body. Certain strains, traditionally indicas, have stronger sedative effects than others.

Digestive Disorders

Even the FDA has recognized THC’s ability to soothe pain and reduce nausea and other symptoms related to gastrointestinal distress. Thanks to endocannabinoid receptors in the digestive tract, cannabis can help folks suffering from severe GI-tract diseases like Crohn’s and irritable bowel syndrome.

This list of the medical benefits of tetrahydrocannabinol is impressive. And as barriers to research crumble, it will only continue to get longer.

THC And Recreational Cannabis Use

Despite its medicinal properties, THC’s claim to fame (and infamy) is the euphoric high it produces. Recreational use of marijuana is all about dialing in the perfect ratio of effects for each individual. And the recreational market, especially where it’s above ground, continues to develop new and innovative ways of getting high.

Whether it’s new strains boasting previous unheard of THC concentrations, new devices for obtaining and consuming cannabis concentrates, or new techniques for produces the highest quality edibles, the recreational market is no doubt one of the most exciting emerging horizons in the cannabis industry worldwide.

At the moment, no trend dominates the recreational cannabis scene more than concentrates. So what is THC concentrate?

THC Concentrates And The Brave New World Of Dabbing

There are a few methods for extracting cannabinoids from the herbaceous matter of dried cannabis flowers. Some are safer than others. But the objective for each of them is the same: extract the maximum amount of cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant.

Butane, CO2 and alcohol extraction methods each have their own merits. And each is able to produce cannabis concentrates with THC concentration levels around 90 percent or higher. Compare that to the average of 25-30 percent THC boasted by the most potent cannabis strains, and you can see why concentrates have become so popular among recreational users.

In final form, concentrates are rich and flavorful substances with an amber color and sticky, gooey texture. They can be consumed purely, or mixed with edible waxes, oils and tinctures in the forms of beverages and tasty treats.

One method of consuming concentrates, however, has catapulted to popularity among recreational users: dabbing. Dabbing is the process of super-heating a glass or metallic element, placing a dab of concentrate on it, and inhaling the ensuing vapors.

Concentrate extraction removes all the bitter plant matter from the cannabis. Yet it maintains the presence of the plant terpenes that give cannabis its taste and smell. Hence, the experience of dabbing, or inhaling the vapor of sublimated concentrates, provides incomparably rich flavors compared to just smoking flowers.

Cannabis Strains With The Highest Concentration Of Tetrahydrocannabinol

Dabbing affords recreational users a massive dose of tetrahydrocannabinol, far greater than any herbaceous cannabis could provide. In other words, dabbing will make you higher than you ever thought possible, and certainly higher than you could get otherwise.

Yet for some, inhaling vapors with upwards of 90 percent tetrahydrocannabinol creates too strong of an effect. This can tip the euphoria of a good high into the anxiousness of a bad one. In that case, recreational users seek out strains with high THC concentrations. Here are some of the most potent THC-dominant strains around.

  • Godfather OG // Indica // 34.04 percent THC
  • Super Glue // Hybrid // 32.14 percent THC
  • Strawberry Banana // Hybrid // 31.62 percent THC
  • Venom OG Kush // Indica // 31.04 percent THC

As you may have noticed, the prevalence of the “OG” moniker reveals that these “ocean grown” strains hail from the California region. With an ideal climate and the most established breeding and cultivation programs, the strongest cannabis strains in the world come from sunny CA.

Fire It Up! Why You Need Heat To Enjoy THC

Since we’ve taken a good look at the recreational dimensions of tetrahydrocannabinol, now’s a good time to mention a very important fact about consuming THC.

In it’s “raw form,” tetrahydrocannabinol is totally inert and will do nothing for you. Again, the form in which tetrahydrocannabinol manifests in cannabis plants is inactive. If you ate a handful of dried cannabis flowers, you wouldn’t get high. But you would have a stomach ache trying to digest the plant fibers! You need heat to make tetrahydrocannabinol work!

So what does THC do when you apply heat to it.

Technically speaking, the cannabinoid that appears in cannabis is THCA. The “A” designates its acidic form. It takes heat to convert THCA to the psychoactive delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol. That’s why you have to apply a flame to dried cannabis. Not just to combust the buds to produce smoke to inhale, but to actually activate the THC.

That activation process is called decarboxylation, or “decarb” for short. Decarbing your cannabis is an absolutely indispensable step when making edibles. Without it, you’re just eating a bunch of raw THCA.

But heating THC to the point of decarboxylation is challenging. It’s too easy to apply too much heat, which results in boiling off the tetrahydrocannabinol completely. Not good!

What The Future Holds For THC

While breeders continue to craft strains with record-breaking tetrahydrocannabinol concentrations, THC’s future is undeniably in the realm of concentrates.

In fact, one of the most important realizations to come out of dabbing culture has profound implications for the future of cannabis in general. The “entourage effect” refers to the synergistic interactions between tetrahydrocannabinol, terpenes, and other cannabinoids. Concentrate production keeps these compounds intact. And that means you don’t just inhale pure THC vapor, but vapor consisting of all of those chemicals combined.

One thing we know is that on its own, THC’s effects are is kind of a “directionless.” There’s no way to determine where, how, or how much it will interact with various parts of the ECS.

It seems that terpenes, however, which are basically the plants’ essential oils, aren’t just there for smell and taste. They also seem to act as guard rails, allowing users to “steer” THC into different chemical pathways and thus, produce different effects.

Knowledge about these interactions is still in its infancy. But recreational users, not researchers, are paving the way by experimenting with different terpene profiles and cannabinoid concentrations. And the demand they’re causing for concentrates is responsible for many of the recent innovations in extraction and vaping techniques.

Final Hit: What Is THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) And What Does THC Do?

Congratulations on reaching the end of this comprehensive guide to the fundamentals of tetrahydrocannabinol, what it is, and what it does. It’s safe to say you’re now a well-informed expert on the subject!

Throughout this guide, we’ve tackled the questions, issues, and trends that matter most. We began with the basics: what does THC stand for.

The Science of the Endocannabinoid System: How THC Affects the Brain and the Body

After several decades of research, scientists studying the effects of marijuana made several important discoveries. Not only did they identify the active ingredient in marijuana, they also discovered where and how it works in the brain—via a new system they called the endocannabinoid (EC) system. The EC system—named after the marijuana plant Cannabis sativa and its active ingredient delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—is a unique communications system in the brain and body that affects many important functions, including how a person feels, moves, and reacts.

The natural chemicals produced by the body that interact within the EC system are called cannabinoids, and like THC, they interact with receptors to regulate these important body functions. So what makes the EC system unique and how does THC’s impact on this system affect a person’s memory, risk for accidents, and even addiction?

Figure 1: The Endocannabinoid (EC) System and THC




How Cannabinoids Work Differently From Other Neurotransmitters

Brain cells (neurons) communicate with each other and with the rest of the body by sending chemical “messages.” These messages help coordinate and regulate everything we feel, think, and do. Typically, the chemicals (called neurotransmitters) are released from a neuron (a presynaptic cell), travel across a small gap (the synapse), and then attach to specific receptors located on a nearby neuron (postsynaptic cell). This spurs the receiving neuron into action, triggering a set of events that allows the message to be passed along.

But the EC system communicates its messages in a different way because it works “backward.” When the postsynaptic neuron is activated, cannabinoids (chemical messengers of the EC system) are made “on demand” from lipid precursors (fat cells) already present in the neuron. Then they are released from that cell and travel backward to the presynaptic neuron, where they attach to cannabinoid receptors.

So why is this important?  Since cannabinoids act on presynaptic cells, they can control what happens next when these cells are activated. In general, cannabinoids function like a “dimmer switch” for presynaptic neurons, limiting the amount of neurotransmitter (e.g., dopamine) that gets released, which in turn affects how messages are sent, received, and processed by the cell.

 How Does THC Affect the EC System and Behavior?

When a person smokes marijuana, THC overwhelms the EC system, quickly attaching to cannabinoid receptors throughout the brain and body. This interferes with the ability of natural cannabinoids to do their job of fine-tuning communication between neurons, which can throw the entire system off balance.

Because cannabinoid receptors are in so many parts of the brain and body, the effects of THC are wide-ranging: It can slow down a person’s reaction time (which can impair driving or athletic skills), disrupt the ability to remember things that just happened, cause anxiety, and affect judgment. THC also affects parts of the brain that make a person feel good—this is what gives people the feeling of being “high.” But over time THC can change how the EC system works in these brain areas, which can lead to problems with memory, addiction, and mental health.

Refer to Figure 2 to see areas of the brain with cannabinoid receptors, then locate those areas on the chart to study some of the different effects of THC on the user.

8 Amazing Facts About the Endocannabinoid System – and Why We Should Tell the World About It

By Mary Biles

Guest writer for Wake -Up World

Did you know your body has an endocannabinoid system? A year ago I didn’t either.

I’m no doctor, but I thought I was familiar with the key biological systems in the body. Turns out though, I was wrong. That’s because unless you’re a research scientist or work in the field of medical cannabis, it’s unlikely you’ll ever have been told about the endocannabinoid system. And yet, it has been hailed as “the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.”

Why do so few people know about the endocannabinoid system?

So what’s the big mystery? Well, it might have something to do with how the endocannabinoid system (ECS) was discovered. Back in the 1990s scientists were trying to understand how THC, the psychoactive substance in the cannabis plant, elicits its effect on the body. What they uncovered was a complex network of receptors (CB1) in the brain and central nervous system that were a perfect fit for the THC molecule.

Soon after another type of receptor (CB2) was discovered in the immune system, gut and many of the body’s major organs. But that was only part of the puzzle. The hunt was on to find out whether the body produced its own cannabis-like chemicals, and with the identification of the first endocannabinoid Anandamide, they had their answer.

What does the endocannabinoid system do?

What scientists have realised is that the endocannabinoid system fine-tunes most of our vital physiological functions, bringing balance to everything from sleep, appetite, pain, inflammation, memory, mood and even reproduction. So in basic terms, it’s like a conductor of an orchestra, ensuring that no one section is drowning out the other, with the end result a perfectly harmonised symphony between body and mind.

Sounds like pretty important work, right? Well, you’d be right. That’s why it’s vital that the ECS becomes as much part of everyday parlance as the immune system. So to get the ball rolling, here are 8 fascinating facts about the totally awesome endocannabinoid system.

1. Humans aren’t alone in having an ECS

As humans beings we’re not special for having an ECS. Not only is the endocannabinoid system found in all vertebrates, but scientists also discovered cannabinoid receptors in non-vertebrate sea-squirts

2. CB1 receptors are the most abundant neurotransmitter receptors in the brain

Most of us have heard of neurotransmitters – they’re the chemicals that communicate information throughout the brain and body. Serotonin and dopamine are perhaps the most well known examples, but it’s the endocannabinoid Anandamide, also classed as a neurotransmitter, that has the most receptors in the brain.

3. Endocannabinoids signal backwards

Most neurotransmitters communicate in one direction: from the signaling neuron to the postsynoptic neuron. But in the endocannabinoid system, it works in the opposite direction, which is called retrograde signaling. This means that if a receptor is being over- or under-stimulated, it signals backwards across the synapse telling the signaling neuron to change its behaviour, creating a kind of feedback loop. So in effect, rather than distributing information like other neurotransmitters, it acts like a kind of dimmer switch, turning activity up or down in order to return the body to homeostasis.

4. Increased endocannabinoid system activity has been noted in many diseases

As the endocannabinoid system’s modus operandi is to bring balance to the body, it’s no surprise then that scientists have observed elevated ECS activity in a number of illnesses. Everything from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, to rheumatoid arthritis and cancer, have shown changes in endocannabinoid levels and greater receptor expression. The conclusion that has been most widely reached is that this increased activity denotes the ECS trying to fulfil its role of returning the body to equilibrium again.

5. ‘Endocannabinoid System Deficiency’ may be a cause of some illnesses

But what happens if the ECS becomes depleted? Scientists have observed how in certain conditions associated with oversensitivity to pain such as migraines, fibromyalgia and IBS, the ECS appears to have become weakened. The theory is known as Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency, with the corollary being that by supplementing the body with compounds from the cannabis plant, this deficiency can be corrected and the symptoms improved.

6. The ECS explains why medicinal cannabis has a therapeutic effect

Prior to 20th century prohibition, cannabis had been used for thousands of years to treat a whole host of ailments from epilepsy, headaches, arthritis, pain, depression and nausea. Back then nobody knew why the plant showed such therapeutic versatility. The discovery of the endocannabinoid system soon shone new light onto the medicinal effects of cannabis. Sadly, this has coincided with a time when the vast majority of the population have been precluded from accessing it.

According to Dustin Sulak, a leading medical cannabis expert:

Research has shown that small doses of cannabinoids from cannabis can signal the body to make more endocannabinoids and build more cannabinoid receptors… I believe that small, regular doses of cannabis might act as a tonic to our most central physiologic healing system.”

7. You don’t have to break the law to give your endocannabinoid system a boost

Currently, medical cannabis-friendly countries are in the minority across the planet. So what can you do if can’t legally access the plant? Well, you could consider trying CBD, a non-psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant, that has a whole host of health benefits such as reducing inflammation, calming feelings of anxiety, and even lowering the frequency of epileptic seizures. CBD is normally extracted from cannabis plants with less than 0.2% THC, commonly referred to as hemp or industrial hemp, allowing it to be bought legally in most countries worldwide.

Another option is to peel yourself off the sofa and get moving. Scientists have found that prolonged aerobic exercise increases levels of the feel-good endocannabinoid, Anandamide.

Diet is also a useful target. Increasing Omega 3 found in oily fish or healthy seeds like flax or hemp, can help support endocannabinoid brain signalling. Leafy green vegetables are also thought to stimulate the ECS as they contain beta-caryophyllene which activates the CB2 receptor.

8. Most doctors know very little about the endocannabinoid system

With the ECS playing such a central role in our health, you would think that any self respecting member of the medical profession would have some knowledge of its existence. But in mainstream medicine, the endocannabinoid system remains rather a pariah.

In 2013 a survey was conducted asking medical school in the United States whether the ECS formed part of their curriculum. The authors found that only “13% teach the endocannabinoid system to future doctors.”

A lot can change in four years, and while in some European countries such as the UK and Spain the ECS does make it onto some medical school syllabuses, it cannot be denied that the majority of professionals in charge of our healthcare remain very much in the dark.

So now you’re endocannabinoid savvy, there’s no turning back. Join me and start spreading the word to all that will listen. It’s time that the ECS is given the attention it deserves both by our healthcare providers and the public at large. If like me you feel moved to take action, why not start by speaking to your doctor? Have they heard of the endocannabinoid system? You never know, perhaps you are the very person to inform them.



7 Ways Cannabis Can Protect the Brain

By Mary Biles

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Cannabis kills brain cells, right? Think again…

It’s true, most of us can think of at least one committed stoner with a memory of a goldfish and a vacant, thousand yard stare. So it may seem counter-intuitive to suggest that the cannabis plant can actually protect the brain and prevent certain neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s from forming.

And yet, even though the US government officially denies any such therapeutic use of cannabis, it has taken out a patent on cannabinoids saying they ‘are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia’.

So, instead of damaging memory it would seem that cannabis could actually do quite the opposite, and even protect against age related memory loss and dementia.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) – a therapeutic target:

Scientists have known for some time that the body’s Endocannabinoid System – the complex network of chemical compounds and receptors found throughout the central nervous (CB1) and the immune system (CB2) – is directly involved in the mechanisms of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.  An increased CB2 expression (1) found in post-mortem brains Alzheimer’s patients has been thought to be the ECS’s attempt to counteract the chronic inflammation found in the disease, while in another study (2) on Alzheimer’s patients, reduced levels of the endocannabinoid anandamide were found, although conversely were elevated in Parkinson’s disease (3).

Researchers believe then that by targeting the Endocannabinoid system, therapeutic answers can be found for many of the neurodegenerative diseases affecting people in the 21st century. And much research is being carried out into how phytocannabinoids like THC and CBD can not only treat disease progression, but also even prevent certain neurodegenerative disorders from happening.

So why exactly is cannabis being posited as the brain protector of the future?

1. Cannabis protects the brain by reducing inflammation

It’s commonly held that chronic inflammation is at the root of many illnesses, including Alzheimer’s. Although it still remains unclear whether inflammation is a by product or a direct contributing factor, bringing an excessive inflammatory response into balance again, is generally believed to be of benefit.

Gary Wenk, PhD, professor of neuroscience, immunology and medical genetics at Ohio State University, has studied how to combat brain inflammation for over 25 years. He says, ‘PET imaging studies of humans have shown that after age thirty the brain gradually displays increasing evidence of inflammation. With advancing age, brain inflammation continues to worsen leading to a decline in the production of new neurons, called neurogenesis, that are important for making new memories’.

He coined the phrase ‘one puff is enough’ after suggesting that ingesting small amounts of cannabis over years can be enough to protect the brain against inflammation, saying ‘the evidence available from studies of humans and animal models of Alzheimer’s disease do indicate that long-term, low-dose daily exposure, during mid-life, to the complex blend of compounds found in the marijuana plant can effectively slow the brain processes underlying Alzheimer’s disease’.

2. Cannabis is a powerful antioxidant protecting against toxic build up in the brain

As well as patenting Cannabinoids as neuroprotectants, the US government also named them antioxidants. But the two qualities are indelibly linked.

An ageing brain has a tendency to accumulate excessive levels of glutamate, a neurotransmitter that is involved with nerve cell signalling. This can lead to glutamate toxicity, an overstimulation of the cell and ultimately cell death. When glutamate causes cellular damage, it becomes an excitotoxin. Excitotoxicity is viewed as a potential cause of many neurodegenerative diseases of the central nervous system, as well as strokes and hearing loss.

In one study (4) carried out on rats, the cannabinoid Cannabidiol was ‘was demonstrated to reduce hydroperoxide toxicity in neurons. In a head to head trial of the abilities of various antioxidants to prevent glutamate toxicity, cannabidiol was superior to both alpha-tocopherol and ascorbate in protective capacity.’  And in another, (5) THC was shown to reduce the levels of glutamate in the brain following a traumatic brain injury.

An additional age related toxicity that researchers believe may bring about the onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s is excessive levels of iron in the body.

Researchers from Pontifical Catholic University in Brazil (6) examined the relationship between high levels of iron and cell death in neurodegenerative diseases. In particular they studied the potential use of CBD, which they found may protect the rapid cell death associated with iron.

3. Cannabis helps promote new brain cell growth

This is the one that really stops people in their tracks. Surely cannabis kills off brain cells, right? While it’s true in young, adolescent brains, cannabis can have a negative effect on brain development, scientists do know that the Endocannabinoid system is closely linked with the process of adult neurogenesis (brain cell growth).

Once again mice were the subjects of research (7) that showed the administration of plant cannabinoids promoted hippocampal neurogenesis – new cell growth in the region of the brain associated both with memory and learning – but also depression and anxiety.

In a follow on study (8) by the University of Saskatchewan, researchers sought to find out whether this hippocampal neurogenesis could explain the apparent anti anxiety and antidepressant effects of cannabinoids. Using a synthetic cannabinoid called HU-210 on rats, they found it gave rise to both the growth of ‘newborn neurons’ in the hippocampal area but also reduced anxiety and depression like behaviour in the animal subjects.

Thus showing that ‘cannabinoids appear to be the only illicit drug whose capacity to produce increased hippocampal newborn neurons is positively correlated with its anxiolytic- and antidepressant-like effects’.

4. Cannabis may slow the progression of some neurodegenerative diseases

We’ve seen that cannabis can potentially be a neuroprotector, but what effect does it have on slowing the progress of illnesses related to the brain and central nervous system?

So far, as generally is the case with research into the use of cannabis to treat disease, most findings are at the pre-clinical stage on animal models, or in the laboratory.

One such trial (9) has shown how CBD can reduce neural inflammation in mice injected with amyloid-beta, the protein that scientists believe leads to neuronal cell death in Alzheimer’s.

Research (10) carried out in 2014 at the University of South Florida showed that extremely low doses of THC actually reduces amyloid-beta production. “THC is known to be a potent antioxidant with neuroprotective properties, but this is the first report that the compound directly affects Alzheimer’s pathology by decreasing amyloid beta levels, inhibiting its aggregation, and enhancing mitochondrial function,” said study lead author Chuanhai Cao, PhD of the study.

By increasing mitochondrial function it also means a healthier brain due to a better energy supply and improved signalling.

5. Cannabis can make Alzheimer’s patients less agitated

A small amount of clinical trials have taken place on Alzheimer’s patients using cannabinoids to lessen levels of agitation.

One double-blind, placebo-controlled, six-week, crossover study of 12 patients suffering from Alzheimer-type dementia reported that 5 mg of dronabinol (delta 9-THC) daily was associated with a decrease in disturbed behaviour (11).

A recent study (12) carried out on 11 patients in Israel found that out of the 10 patients that completed the trial ingesting medical cannabis oil, researchers recorded “significant reduction” in behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia. Researchers concluded that ‘adding medical cannabis oil  to Alzheimer’s patients’ pharmacotherapy is safe and a promising treatment option’.

6. Cannabis may protect the brain against serious brain trauma

5.3 million people live with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the US, a number comparable to those living with Alzheimer’s. It is caused by a severe blow to the head and resulting symptoms can include cognitive problems such as headache, difficulty thinking, memory problems, attention deficits, mood swings and frustration.

TBI is also proving an exciting area of research for the potential therapeutic use of cannabinoids. THC in particular has been shown to protect the brain from long term damage following a traumatic injury. In a study (13) carried out on mice by Professor Yosef Sarne of Tel Aviv University, very low doses of THC administered over a long period of time were found to ‘protect the brain from long-term cognitive damage in the wake of injury from hypoxia (lack of oxygen), seizures, or toxic drugs’.

Not only did they find that THC minimised the damage to the brain following an injury, but if administered before the incident it could prevent brain injury from occurring in the first place. It seems strange to suggest taking THC just in case a brain trauma might occur, but in instances such as major surgery when blood supply to the brain is interrupted, THC’s neuroprotection could be of benefit.

This theory appears to be backed up by a study (14) carried out at a hospital in California reviewing the data of 446 adults treated for brain injuries. Overall 1 in 5 patients tested positive for THC and compared to the patients who hadn’t tested positive, they were statistically 80% less likely to die from their injuries.

While this doesn’t demonstrate a direct cause and effect between THC use and survival from serious brain trauma, the findings certainly highlight the potential use of cannabinoids for giving the best chances of recovery.

7. Cannabis could limit brain damage resulting from strokes

Whereas a TBI is caused by an external force injuring the brain, a stroke occurs when due to a thickening of the arteries, there is poor blood flow to the brain, resulting in cell death, partial paralysis etc.

Scientists are slowly beginning to realise how the endocannabinoid system is activated during a stroke (15) whereby ‘activation of the CB receptors leads to cellular changes that are extremely relevant to ischemic injury (stroke damage): they regulate glutamate release, nitric oxide synthesis, growth factor expression, cellular antioxidant activity, the release of inflammatory cytokines, and leukocyte adhesion to cerebral vessels.’

Both CBD and THC’s ability to block the neurotransmitter glutamate, produced when the brain is deprived of oxygen, once again come to the fore as a way to limit cell death following a stroke. In a study (16) published in 2010 scientists concluded that ‘CBD had a potent and long-lasting neuroprotective effect and prevented progressive post-ischemic injury’ and ‘that repeated treatment with CBD from 1 day or 3 days after cerebral ischemia improved the functional deficits, such as neurological score and motor coordination, and survival rates’.

Another rodent study (17) showed Cannabidiol to have ‘a protective effect on neuronal death induced by ischemia (stroke)’ indicating that it ‘might exert beneficial therapeutic effects in brain ischemia’.

So contrary to the commonly held belief that cannabis leads to the loss of precious neurones, studies increasingly show the potential benefits for protecting our ageing brains against neurodegeneration and even injury from external forces.

It’s clear that there is a lot still to understand about the endocannabinoid system’s role in these particular diseases, but scientists remain hopeful that the many theories honed in the lab may one day move forward into the realms of clinical trials, and eventually to treatment for patients.

5 Surprising Things to Know About the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of the most important components of the body, yet it remains largely a mystery to us today. Understanding the ECS is important for both cannabis users and non-users alike, as its impact on health is unparalleled.


The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of the most important components of the body. The number of physiological processes it is responsible for or involved in is truly staggering. Understanding the ECS is important for both cannabis users and non-users alike, as its impact on health is unparalleled. Given its integral roles in biology, the ECS appears in many surprising and unexpected places.

What Is the Endocannabinoid System and What Is Its Role?

The Endocannabinoid System For Dummies (We’ve Made It Easy For You)

Have you ever been confused about the endocannabinoid system? Educate yourself. This guide will tell you everything you need to know.

Anna Wilcox


Have you ever wondered how THC works? Well, it just-so-happens to be a similar shape to a compound our bodies create naturally. Thanks to its shape, THC is able to tap into a network in our bodies called the endocannabinoid system. It’s this ability that gives THC it’s psychoactive effects. But, what is the endocannabinoid system and what does it do? To help you understand, we’ve created a handy guide to the endocannabinoid system for dummies. 

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) refers to a collection of cell receptors and corresponding molecules. You can think of cell receptors like little locks on the surface of your cells. The keys to these locks are chemical molecules called agonists. Each time an agonist binds to a cell it relays a message, giving your cell specific direction.

The endocannabinoid system is the name for a series of cell receptors that respond to certain kinds of agonists. Two primary cell receptors make up the ECS, Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (CB1) and Cannabinoid Receptor 2 (CB2). The keys for these receptors are called endocannabinoids.

Endocannabinoids are like the body’s natural THC. In fact, endocannabinoids got their name from cannabis. Plant cannabinoids were discovered first. Endo means within, and cannabinoid referring to a compound that fits into cannabinoid receptors.

There are two main endocannabinoid molecules, named anandamide and 2-Ag. Funny thing, scientists wouldn’t have discovered anandamide without THC. Psychoactive (THC) was first discovered by Israeli scientist Raphael Mechoulam back in the 1960s. His finding quickly spurred a rush to figure out how THC worked, and whether or not our own bodies produced a similar compound.

More than two decades after the search began, anandamide was found. Yet, once they isolated the chemical, they faced another challenge. What should it be called? They turned to Sanskrit. Anandamide comes from the Sanskrit word Ananda, which means bliss. So, basically, anandamide means bliss molecule.

What does the ECS do?

Cannabinoid receptors are found all throughout the body, giving them a wide variety of functions. However, certain receptors are more concentrated in specific regions. CB1 receptors are abundant in the central nervous system. CB2 receptors are more often found on immune cells, in the gastrointestinal tract, and in the peripheral nervous system.

The diversity of receptor locations shows just how important endocannabinoids are for day-to-day bodily function. They help regulate the following:

  • Sleep
  • Appetite, digestion, hunger
  • Mood
  • Motor control
  • Immune function
  • Reproduction and fertility
  • Pleasure and reward
  • Pain
  • Memory
  • Temperature regulation

Endocannabinoids are the chemical messengers that tell your body to get these processes moving and when to stop. They help maintain optimal balance in the body, also known as homeostasis. When the ECS is disrupted, any one of these things can fall out of balance. Dysregulation in the ECS is thought to contribute to a wide variety of conditions, including fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome.

The ECS theory of disease is termed “Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency“.  The idea is simple: when the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids or cannot regulate them properly, you are more susceptible to illnesses that affect one or several of the functions listed above.

Where do endocannabinoids come from?

If your body cannot produce enough endocannabinoids, you might be in for some trouble. But, where do endocannabinoids come from, anyway? This question has another simple answer: diet.

Your body creates endocannabinoids with the help of fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are especially important for this. Recent research in animal models has found a connection between diets low in omega-3s and mood changes caused by poor endocannabinoid regulation.

Fortunately, hemp seeds are a quality source of omgea-3s. However, fish like salmon and sardines produce a form of omega-3s that is easier for your body to put to use.

Beyond cell receptors

Cannabinoid receptors are often what we associate with the endocannabinoid system. But, the ECS is more complicated than that. Enzymes also have a crucial role to play in the process. In a way, enzymes are kind of like Pacman. They gobble up various compounds, change them, and then spit out the parts. In the ECS, enzymes break down leftover endocannabinoids. Enter non-psychoactive CBD.

Enter non-psychoactive CBD. While THC binds with cannabinoid receptors directly, CBD does not. Instead, it works it’s magic on an enzyme. The enzyme in question is called FAAH, and it is responsible for pulling excess anandamide out of circulation.

CBD puts a stop to this. Psychoactive THC works by mimicking the body’s own endocannabinoids. But, CBD increases the amount of endocannabinoids in your system.

CBD stops enzyme FAAH from breaking down all of the anandamide, and therefore makes more of it available for use by your cells. This is why CBD is a natural mood-lifter without psychoactive effects.

This is just a brief overview of the endocannabinoid system. Each year, new studies shed light into what this amazing network does inside our bodies. The discovery of the ECS is what makes medical cannabis such a big deal.

People often joke about the herb’s ability to heal a wide variety of seemingly unrelated conditions. But, we now understand that these conditions are all regulated in part by the ECS. The medical implications of this finding are endless.

Well, last week we covered what a reporter wrote about the Genesis II Church in the U.K. This week we have a reporter from Canada. Same old Big Pharma canned protocol response. “They” will never tell the whole story about what we do! I always try to do a rebuttal every time we have these articles done but I’m getting tired of even responding to this BLAH BLAH BLAH of luciferian media reporters defending their satanic owners pocketbooks! Why don’t they hunt down some of the people that are on our videos and ask what happened to them? You know why, right? They would be proving that we are doing a clinical study with human volunteers around the world with standardized protocols and consistent results, that’s why!!! Hahahahah   They will NEVER admit they know what our protocols do and how they really detox the body, so it can heal. But this information is being repressed by the Rothschild prostitutes in the  mainstream FAKE NEWS medias worldwide!

This week on the G2Voice Broadcast I will cover this article point by point showing how they outright lie, distort and distract from the truth. Nothing new with these pathological liars! May God help them to see what they are doing and who they are protecting!

            Something called Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) is being touted by an online 'church' as a cure-all for many diseases, including cancer, HIV/AIDS and autism. (the fifth estate)

Health Canada says it has opened a case to see whether a U.S.-based "church" group violated the Food and Drugs Act in the sale, distribution or marketing of MMS, a so-called miracle mineral solution, during a recent meeting in Calgary.

The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing met at a downtown Calgary hotel in March, but organizers declined to speak to CBC News about the meeting or whether MMS was being sold or given to delegates who paid $350 US to attend the two-day session last month. 

The online agenda for the meeting said doses of MMS might be handed out.

"We just might surprise everyone every so often with a dose of MMS1. Be ready!" read the itinerary.

Mark Grenon, a self-described archbishop with the church, spoke at the Calgary meeting in front of a dozen people.

His son, Jonathan, who described himself as a bishop with the church, refused to answer questions related to the session and whether MMS was being offered for sale.

"We don't sell anything," said Jonathan Grenon. 

An edited version of the exchange between CBC News and Grenon was posted on the Genesis II YouTube channel last month.

"We're going to continue with our service right now, we're going to stop this because this is not an interview," Jonathan Grenon told the CBC on March 17.

A message from Grenon posted to the church's website claimed a "package of sacraments" would be included for seminar participants, including "MMS, Activator, MMS2, DMSO, spray bottle, capsules, etc."

Health Canada has been warning Canadians about the dangers of MMS for years. 

The federal agency says the product sold as Miracle Mineral Solution may pose serious health risks because it contains sodium chlorite, a bleach-like chemical. MMS is being promoted as a treatment for a range of health ailments, including cancer.

Since the ​March 17, 2018 meeting, Health Canada said it has opened a case "to verify compliance [of the Food and Drugs Act] and will take action to address any confirmed non-compliance." 

"​MMS is a drug that has not been approved for sale by Health Canada. Therefore, it is illegal to advertise, sell or distribute this product in Canada, whether or not payment is provided for the product," said Health Canada in an email to CBC News.  

In an email to CBC News, Grenon said: "Well, Health Canada can act like they are going to do something. But they will do nothing!!!"

"As a Church, we are totally separate and do not have to give account to any so called 'health agency,'" he added.

"So, for you to make this statement of "health Canada" or whatever so called "health agency," it means nothing but dung to us," said Grenon.

Health Canada charged Stanley Nowak of Riondel, B.C., and Sara Nowak of Okotoks, Alta., last fall under the Food and Drugs Act with 29 counts related to the sale, packaging and advertising of sodium chlorite, one of the ingredients of MMS.

A trial has been scheduled for October in British Columbia.

None of the allegations against the Nowaks has been proven in court.  

Health Canada says MMS is sometimes promoted under different names, including Miracle Mineral Supplement, Master Mineral Solution, or its ingredient, sodium chlorite.


Jim Humble, founder of the Genesis II Church, claims that up to '95 per cent of all diseases caused by pathogens can be cured with MMS.' (YouTube)

The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, which describes itself as a non-religious church, touts diluted sodium chlorite as a cure-all for a range of conditions and diseases including AIDS, autism, cancer, lyme disease, malaria and herpes.

The Genesis II Church was founded by an American named Jim Humble, who claims he is a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda galaxy.


G2Voice Broadcast #83: The Truth about “Nutritional”





noun: nutrition

  1. the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for health and growth.

"a guide to good nutrition"

  • food; nourishment.

"a feeding tube gives her nutrition and water"

  • "the child was not receiving adequate nutrition"
  • the branch of science that deals with nutrients and nutrition, particularly in humans.

"she took a short course in nutrition"

  • Medicine doesn’t do that!
  • Fiber doesn’t do that!
  • Non-foods don’t do that!


How important is nutrition?

            Nutrition is the most important science on earth in REGARD to the body’s health and IF it controls the health of the body then to each one of us it is essential! Nutrition is a process. The first step of this process called nutrition has to do with what is being allowed in the body. Not everything that is allowed in the body is nutritious. So, the only things that can aid the nutrition process are things that the body was designed to gain nutrition from since the world began.

            I think all will agree that artificial and synthetically made foods, medicines, supplements, and other non-foods being consumed and allowed into the body today. This is something that has occurred within the last 200 years at most but has grown exponentially in the last 100 years and in the last 50 has caused all kinds of health issues.

We need nutrition for our bodies to battle the toxic on slot against our health and to thrive and be in balance i.e. homeostasis. But, do we NEED nutritional supplements? Can these “nutritional” supplements help or even hurt the body’s health? Are these nutritional supplements really what the makers say they are? Do you understand what vitamins and minerals are? How do vitamins really “work” in the body? Is it important for a supplement to be organic? Are synthetic and artificial supplements just as good as food in food and occuring naturally? Where do I find REAL nutrition?

I hope to answer these questions for you all and OPEN your eyes to the TRUTH about “nutritional supplements”.





noun: supplement; plural noun: supplements


  1. 1.

something that completes or enhances something else when added to it.

"the handout is a supplement to the official manual"

Synonyms: addition, accessory, supplementation, supplementary, extra, add-on,


What Is the Definition of Nutrition?


By Adam Brookover 

What is the definition of nutrition? Nutrition is the sum total of the processes involved in the taking in and the utilization of food substances by which growth, repair and maintenance of the body are accomplished. It involves ingestion, digestion, absorption and assimilation. Nutrients are stored by the body in various forms and drawn upon when the food intake is not sufficient.

I have read and still read the great philosophers, going back to the Greeks .... but I was appalled when I realized that those truly great men of those times seemed to know virtually nothing about nutrition. How could this happen? Why was nutrition ignored? That is the greatest puzzle of all time, as far as I am concerned.

You may say that wild animals don't know anything about nutrition and they do all right. Well, the important thing here is that animals know what to eat and drink by instinct .... while man long ago lost his powers of instinct. Thus, man needs nutritional knowledge and an animal doesn't.

Where will we get our nutritional knowledge? Man knows about science and about a thousand and one other things but about nutrition he knows virtually nothing. That happens to be one of the sciences about which man is blissfully ignorant .... even though his welfare, existence, health and life itself depend upon it. How did this 'boner' happen or come about? Ah, that is the burning question and I'm afraid Tobe cannot give you the answer.

I have diligently searched for information on the study of nutrition and I am thunderstruck to learn that in America the study of nutrition at the university and research level only began in 1894, by a scientist named Atwater. Its progress since that time has moved forward at what I would call a snail's pace. Yes, while there are millions of dollars available for research, little, if any, finds its way into the universities to study nutrition. Speaking with logic and a clear bright eye on the truth, nutrition is virtually a no man's land among the intelligensia.

Foundations and those who control endowment money won't contribute a cent to the study of nutrition. All universities get huge sums of money, running into the millions or tens or hundreds of millions of dollars .... but not a cent for the study of nutrition. Don't be surprised at this. Accept it .... because it is true. Besides, it makes good sense.

Most doctors refuse to study nutrition even as a minor course and if you look at the matter in a fair-minded manner, you cannot blame them. A medical doctor doesn't want to spend four or five years at high school and about ten more years earning a medical degree, just to teach people what to eat and drink so they can remain healthy and stay away from doctors. Let's be realistic — nutrition is the most important science on earth, yet it is the most unwanted by some segments of our economic structure.

A busy medical physician in any one of the major cities in either Canada or the United States would earn at least 50  to 100 thousand annually. Yes, and according to the newspapers, many earn from 250 to 400 thousand. Do you think they would entertain the idea of allowing nutrition to louse up that kind of money? Besides, these selfsame big, big money earners have the means and the clout to keep nutrition down in the dumps for at least another 50 years .... unless man suddenly rises up from his long, long sleep. However, the chances are he'll never wake up if they keep dousing him with valium and hundreds of other somniferous, mind boggling drugs.

There is a chance that man may yet gain some knowledge about nutrition, but it must happen elsewhere than in America. I do hope that there will emerge some means whereby the study of nutrition will go forward at a full task force pace.

Something that puzzles me is why the Soviet Union hasn't done some worthwhile work on the subject of nutrition. I don't know but maybe it is due to the fact that in the U.S.S.R. there is not so much sickness. Further, they probably see no reason why they should pull our chestnuts out of the fire. I contend that in no way would the U.S.S.R. help save the lives of Americans for, remember, Khruschev told the American people, "We'll bury you!" Well, by the looks of things it could be that Khruschev might have been more right than anyone ever suspected. However, the American people are doing it themselves .... actually, committing genocide.

No dollar-oriented society could possibly undertake the whole-hearted serious study of nutrition and I'm afraid that the powers with the most money will do their best to block or delay any nutritional gains or leaps forward. If you think I am over-reacting, let me assure you that I am being most sombre and calm and I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, exaggerating.

You may well ask why there is so much confusion about nutrition. Well, that's not hard to fathom if you take time to investigate the situation a little. When some good nutritionist or scientist comes up with an important health-contributing bit of scientific knowledge that does or can do harm to the drug, food, beverage and other big profit-making industries, these industries immediately hire the best nutritional research scientists that money can buy and in no time flat they come up with evidence that refutes the findings that could do umbrage to their products. That's how the nutritional ball game is played and that is why there is so much confusion in the ranks.

For over 20 years I have been researching researchers and, to my dismay, I have learned that even 50 and 100 years ago much of the research was rigged. You see, researchers needed money to carry on their work in those days, too, and it has always been that the man who pays the piper calls the tune.

Can we ever hope to change these abominable circumstances? Are there no honest research scientists'? Is there no one who will truly work and strive for the health and welfare of mankind? I am doing my best in the only way I know how — with my pen!

I know, you know and, yes, we all know that there are honest men among our scientists, but the big money is only available to those whose principles bear a price tag and we must all realize that today money is the name of the game.

However, we must be logical and recognize that the study of the science of nutrition has been set back drastically because big business has a tight rein on science and I am realistic enough to know there is not a thing we can do about it.

I contend that millions have had their life-spans shortened and millions more will have to pay the supreme penalty before America will wake up and sweep the morass aside .... but don't hold your breath in expectation. No, man's inhumanity to man has not yet reached the end of its tether.

I predict that the cancer rate will rise higher and higher and that before the year 2,000 it will be responsible for more than 50% of the total deaths. Then maybe the perpetrators of this mass genocide will come to their senses and finally realize that life is more important than money .... but the monsters they create may destroy them, too! I write this with a heavy heart, yet everything I say is true.

Members of the medical profession are partly responsible, too ... not because they created the predicament but because they knew what was going on and did not raise their voices to correct the situation. Yes, and they did even more than that because they harassed, persecuted and plagued their colleagues who did speak out.

Strange to relate, it is difficult, if not impossible to know who are your friends and who are your enemies. Even I, who am continually in touch with the situation, do not know for sure who's who and what's what.

Let's face it, the medical profession in one way or another controls practically every health research dollar spent in the world, including those spent by the American Cancer Society and their affiliates. Now do you think they would suggest or even allow a research project using raw food as a control or cure for cancer? Surely you are joking if you say you think they would. The members of the medical profession don't want to go back to hard days like those of the dirty thirties when they had to resort to various nefarious practices to make a buck.

Of course, I recognize the rhyme and the reason for this reluctance on the part of the medical profession but, on the other hand, it isn't their money. Most of it is public money or endowment funds but the medical fraternity has control of it, due to government appointments or their being elected to the boards of various institutions. For some inexplicable reason the public seems to feel that doctors are the people to make these decisions. Whatever the reason, that's the way it's done and that is why the raw juice and raw food diet has never been truly studied so that the world might learn the truth about the merits of raw food.

Now without money for research how can we ever conduct experiments to prove to the world that raw juices and raw food can prevent and clear up most illnesses and diseases, including cancer?



What is Nutrition?


Nutrition is the study of how food and drink affects our bodies with a special regard to the essential nutrients necessary to support human health. It looks at the physiological and biochemical processes involved in nourishment and how substances in food provide energy or are converted into body tissues. These nutrients which are the source of energy for our bodies are classed as: carbohydrates, fats, fibre, minerals, proteins, vitamins, and water. Good nutrition means obtaining the right amount of nutrients from healthy foods in the right combinations. An important part of the study of nutrition is looking at the diseases that can result from malnutrition and the role food plays in the development of chronic disease.

Poor nutrition can lead to a lack of energy, digestive problems, food allergies, weight gain, depression and anxiety as well as many of today’s most prevalent chronic diseases like coronary heart disease, cancer, ADHA. Having nutritional knowledge and making informed choices about the foods you eat can help you achieve optimum health over your lifetime.


6 Essential Nutrients and Their Functions

Written by Amanda Hernandez ; Updated March 28, 2018

An essential nutrient is a nutrient that the body cannot synthesize on its own -- or not to an adequate amount -- and must be provided by the diet. These nutrients are necessary for the body to function properly. The six essential nutrients include carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water.


Carbohydrates are the main energy source for the brain. Without carbohydrates, the body could not function properly. Sources include fruits, breads and grains, starchy vegetables and sugars. Make at least half of the grains you consume whole grains. Whole grains and fruit are full of fiber, which reduces the risk of coronary heart disease and helps maintain normal blood glucose levels.

2. Protein

Protein is the major structural component of cells and is responsible for the building and repair of body tissues. Protein is broken down into amino acids, which are building blocks of protein. Nine of the 20 amino acids, known as essential amino acids, must be provided in the diet as they cannot be synthesized in the body. Ten to 35 percent of your daily calories should come from lean protein sources such as low-fat meat, dairy, beans or eggs.

3. Fat

Fat is an energy source that when consumed, increases the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins including vitamins A, D, E and K. Twenty to 35 percent of your daily intake should come from fat. Choose healthy options such as omega-3-rich foods like fish, walnuts and vegetable-based oils. Omega-3s help with development and growth. Limit intake of saturated fats such as high-fat meats and full-fat dairy. Other smart choices include nuts, seeds and avocado.

4. Vitamins

Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, which provides structure to blood vessels, bone and ligaments. Rich sources include citrus fruits, strawberries and peppers. Folate, found in foods, helps to prevent birth defects. Pregnant women or women who plan to become pregnant should speak with their physician about taking a folic acid supplement, the synthetic form of folate, in addition to their diet. Vitamin D helps to maintain calcium homeostasis. It can be found in food sources or synthesized by the sun.

5. Minerals

Sodium helps to maintain fluid volume outside of the cells and helps cells to function normally. Keep intake under 2,400 milligrams per day. Potassium maintains fluid volume inside and outside of cells and prevents the excess rise of blood pressure with increased sodium intake. Rich sources include bananas, potatoes and tomatoes. Calcium helps to maintain and build strong bones and teeth. Include three servings of calcium-rich foods per day including milk, low-fat cheese and yogurt.


Water helps to maintain homeostasis in the body and transports nutrients to cells. Water also assists in removing waste products from the body. All beverages and high-moisture foods such as soup and watermelon contain water and count towards your daily water requirement. Adults should consume 25 to 35 milliliters of fluids per kilogram body weight or 2 to 3 liters per day.

7? Fibre


Fibre is an important component of a healthy balanced diet. We get fibre from plant-based foods, but it's not something the body can absorb. This means fibre is not a nutrient and contains no calories or vitamins. Fibre helps your digestive system to process food and absorb nutrients

Note: All Bolding is mine for emphasis









It is very important to know all the requisite information on nutritional supplements before taking them. It is known that minerals and vitamins are necessary for optimal health. However, many of us just don’t know what kind of minerals and vitamins to take which creates a lot of confusion, apathy, and frustration for a lot of people. Namely, numerous companies in the world are producing multi minerals and vitamins and promoting them as necessary for good health. But, at the same time are sabotaging the health of millions of people who are unsuspecting buyers of harmful and synthetic vitamins and minerals. The fact is that most mineral and vitamin brands on the market are synthetic, i.e. made from oxide minerals and other chemical substances. These products contain harmful substances, for example: preservatives, fillers, binders, coal tar, bitumen, gelatin, waste products etc. Consequently, these products cannot be digested by the human body and therefore cannot be assimilated. Moreover, they do not have a synergism due to being industrial-made and thus cannot find their way out of the body and thus get lodged in the tissues of the body causing disease or enhancing present diseases. Multi complexes are manufactured by pharmaceutical and food companies, and are not organic which is the state all digestible foods must be in for the body to break them down in order to absorb their nutrients. For those who are unsure, this article will provide some information to determine if vitamin tablets or multi mineral complexes are food or imitations.



Nutritional supplements, and above all the vitamins and minerals, can be purchased today in supermarket or local drugstore, as well as at

health food stores. Whether the vitamins and minerals in the health food stores in some way better or were higher quality? Or it can be

assumed that the ones in the supermarket or drugstore just as good? More than 95% of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that you can buy at “health food” stores and close to 100% of those sold in other stores are now made by the same few pharmaceutical and chemical companies who supply them to most all the vitamin and mineral companies. They are no longer the nutritional supplements they once were but are, more accurately, “nutraceuticals”. In such a way, the drug companies are quietly taken over the nutrition business. Thus, for example, people tend to assume that vitamin C from one brand is pretty much the same as vitamin C from another brand. And in many cases they’re right since the vitamin C came from the same original supplier. But what most people do not realize is that these vitamins and minerals are not true and complete vitamins and minerals as would be supplied by good organically-grown whole foods. In fact, they are chemical synthetics made from such things as coal tar, petroleum products, animal by- products, ground rocks, stones, shells and metal (Thiel, 2014; Hui, 1992). And not only do they not supply the benefits of the real vitamins and minerals but they can actually be quite harmful when taken over time (Chong, 2005). Especially in the mega doses so often recommended. Real vitamins only require very minute doses to be effective. Do you sometimes ask yourself, How many people suffer from rickets or scurvy? Probably none. What about cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol and diabetes? Probably a lot. The latter are all diseases that arise from having too much! Multi-vitamin won’t help much there.

For a long time, public media present us daily interesting marketing propaganda in the field of health and nutrition. There are some rather

disturbing marketing trends that are geared towards human health and their diet. Namely, print and television advertisements show

athletes, pretty girls and attractive women while nibbling candy bar that has been fortified with a bunch of synthetic vitamins and minerals, as well as a whole host of other artificial additives and preservatives. Smiling children have fortified juices, cereal bars, and even gummy candies and chewing gum. What these ad campaigns don’t show is how these products are obtained and how they are processed that foods may contain harmful ingredients like hydrogenated oils, synthetic vitamins, and neurotoxins. Specific nutrients that are shown to be beneficial in clinical studies are isolated, often in synthetic form, and heralded as new weapon against cancer, heart disease, old age, etc (Pietrzik, 1996). Even in the field of alternative health we find this same sort of reductionism going on. Herbal compounds are isolated, extracted and ingested in inappropriate quantities, without the synergy that the whole plant provides. However, there is something to be said for using plants, their fruits, and foods in their whole forms and for cultivating a relationship with the different energies offered by the natural products around us. It’s very hard to improve on a diet of wild foods and herbs. Well-nourished bodies and minds enjoy balanced hormones and hearty immune systems. Daily input of nourishing products, such as fruits and vegetables, are a wonderful way to add extra nutrients to your diet. Unlike synthetic pills, natural products provide essential nutrients in a highly assimilable form.


Real or synthetic


Multivitamins are good for preventing conditions that arise from severe deficiency, but their helpfulness seems to taper off pretty quickly when the body is in a high calorie, insulin-rich

physiological state that most people with a western diet find themselves in (Pietrzik, 1996). This isn’t meant to demonize them, but to help people understand that taking one doesn’t help

the body exert the metabolic control needed to prevent diseases of convenience. Namely, Americans are spending more than 17 billion a year on supplements for health and wellness. Strangely enough, the rates of some forms of chronic disease have not changed, while the rates of others have actually increased. There are a number of reasons for these poor statistics and many things remain a mystery. One thing seems fairly clear, however. Most supplements aren’t helping very much (Chong, 2005). They are highly complex structures that combine a variety of enzymes, coenzymes, antioxidants, trace elements, activators and many other unknown or undiscovered factors all working together synergistically, to enable this vitamin complex to do its job in your body. Nutrients from within this complex cannot be taken apart

or isolated from the whole, and then be expected to do the same job in the body as the whole complex is designed to do. suggests that individuals frequently exceed safe nutrient levels when they take vitamin supplements (Troppman et al., 2002).


The truth behind whole-food supplements


Namely, whole food supplements are what their name suggests. Supplements made from concentrated whole foods. The vitamins found within these supplements are not isolated. The perfect example of this difference can be understood on the example of an automobile (Chong, 2005). An automobile is a wonderfully designed complex machine that needs all of its parts to be present and in place to function properly. Wheels are certainly an important part of the whole, but you could never isolate them from the rest of the car, call them a car or expect them to function like a car. They need the engine, body and everything else. The same analogy applies to the vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or vitamin E (delta tocopherol) you can find on most health food store shelves. They are parts of an entire complex that serve a purpose when part of the whole. However, they cannot do the job of the entire complex by themselves. With similar logic in place, one can analyze what a typical multivitamin truly is. The automobile equivalent of creating a multivitamin would be going to a junk yard, finding all of the separate parts you would need to make up an entire automobile, throwing them together in a heap (or capsule in terms of the multivitamin) and expecting that heap to drive like a car.

Isolated nutrients or synthetic nutrients are not natural, in that they are never found by themselves in nature. Taking these isolated nutrients, especially at the ultra-high doses found in formulas today, is more like taking a drug. Studies show the body treats these isolated and synthetic nutrients like xenobiotics (foreign substances). By the same token, food-based supplements are never treated like this by your body. For example, your urine will never turn florescent yellow, no matter how much meat (a good source of B vitamins) you eat. This sort of rapid excretion happens only with foreign substances in your body. Not only are isolated nutrients treated like drugs or other chemicals by your body. Like drugs, they can create problems for you too. Nature does not produce any nutrient in an isolated form. The nutrients in foods are blended together in a specific way and work best in that format. For an isolated nutrient to work properly in the body, it needs all the other parts that are naturally present in the food too. If the parts are not all there from the start, they are taken from the body’s stored supply. This is why isolated nutrients often work for a little while, then seem to stop working. Once your body’s store of the extra nutrients is used up, the isolated nutrient you’re taking doesn’t work as well anymore. Worse yet, a deficiency in these extra nutrients can be created in

your body. And, because most nutrients are isolated from the foods they come in - using a wide array of potentially nasty solvents and other chemicals - taking high amounts of these products can also

expose you to these potentially toxic chemicals, if care is not taken to remove them. With the burden we are already facing from the high number of chemicals in our environment, why would anyone want to add more? The various parts of a natural vitamin complex work together in a synergistic manner. Synergy means that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Nutritionist Judith De Cava (1997) puts it best: “Separating the group of compounds (in a vitamin complex) converts it from a physiological, biochemical, active micronutrient into a disabled, debilitated chemical of little or no value to living cells. The synergy is gone.”

In other words, the automobile, in its original form, will drive better than a pile of its individual parts. Most people don’t follow this logic when examining a nutritional supplement. Supplement makers typically try to stuff as much as possible in a capsule, telling us that the more we take, the better it is for us. This is simply not the case. As you now know, it is not necessarily the amount of a nutrient you ingest that is important, but its form and how much is bioavailable that counts the most. In fact, remembering that ingesting single nutrients can actually create imbalances in the body, logic would dictate the higher the level of a single nutrient that you take in, the quicker this imbalance will occur. What all of this means: The potency of a supplement has much more to do with synergy than with actual nutrient levels. It is a combined effect of all the parts of the food, rather than the chemical effect of a single part, that is most important.


Whole-food or synthetic supplements


In the previous chapter was already discussed the importance of taking natural supplements to support body and immune system. But which supplements do you take, and how do you know which supplements are the best ones? For example, Americans spend billions of dollars every year on supplements, and it’s very important to understand that not all supplements are created equal.

Sometimes, there are vast differences between products.

What is the difference between whole food supplements and synthetic supplements (isolated or fractionated supplements)?

A great example would be just to simplify look at almost any multivitamin. When you scan the nutritional content fact and ingredient label, you’ll see quite an assortment of vitamins (A, C, E, etc.). Here is a portion of a label for a common multivitamin-

multimineral supplement. For this product say that replaces key nutrients that may be depleted through the stress of intense physical activity.

Maximum formula with key ingredients (important vitamins and minerals) to keep you healthy and energized: physical energy (Cr, Fe, biotin, vitamins B 6 and B 12 ), mental energy (vitamins B 6 and B 12 , thiamin, riboflavin, niacin), natural defense and immunity (Se, Zn, vitamins C and A), stress of physical activity (Se, vitamins A,

C, and E), joints and bones (Ca, Mg, Zn, vitamins A, C, and D).

MY Note: Propylene glycol is considerably less toxic than ethylene glycol and may be labeled as "non-toxic antifreeze". It is used as antifreeze where ethylene glycol would be inappropriate, such as in food-processing systems or in water pipes in homes where incidental ingestion may be possible.


Namely, there are a lot of vitamins listed on this label. Look at the items listed under“Ingredients”. Those are “isolated” vitamins and other chemicals. There are no foods or herbal ingredients listed only partial vitamins and other chemicals. Nature intended for us to consume food in its whole form because all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes are bound together in one package and work synergistically to deliver the nutrition your body needs. Synthetic supplements give isolated or fractionated pieces of the whole. It is simply not the same, you’re not getting the full benefit nature intended. The other problem is, by taking isolated vitamins, sometimes we are getting massive doses of some vitamins, but not enough of others. This imbalance this can cause health problems too. Aren’t we trying to get healthier – rather than cause more problems?


Multivitamins and Mineral Supplements


Vitamins and minerals, and also enzymes, work closely together as co-factors for each other’s efficacy (Grujić et al., 2014). If one part

is missing, or in the wrong form or the wrong amount, entire chains of metabolic processes will not proceed normally. Vitamins and minerals are not functionally separable. They make each other work. Example: vitamin D is necessary for the body to absorb calcium. Copper is necessary for vitamin C activity. And so on. Mineral deficiencies can cause vitamin deficiencies, and vice versa. So that is the other prime difference between whole food vitamins and synthetics: whole food

vitamins contain within them many essential trace minerals necessary for their synergistic operation. Synthetic vitamins contain no trace minerals, relying on, and depleting, the body’s own mineral



Significance of natural minerals


Minerals must come from land, respectively natural foods (fruits, vegetables, plants, seeds, nuts, grains). Minerals derived from natural and living substances such as food supra are organic. Minerals derived from non-living sources, i.e. metallic substances or synthetic metal salts are inorganic, i.e. non-living.

Most people are unwisely and unknowingly consuming inorganic minerals and vitamins by multi mixture products today. When using minerals for yourself you must know what to look for. A good mineral brand will list all organic sources of the minerals. These organic sources should be derived from food (fruit, plant, vegetable sources) exclusively. Any brand that lists any of the 102 minerals with a term following the mineral is synthetic.

For example, nature made calcium, but not calcium gluconate. Nature made iron, but not iron ferrous. Nature did make oxide minerals, but not for purposes of human consumption. You must remember that nature has produced two states of every mineral: organic and inorganic, or phosphate and oxide. Humans require organic or phosphate minerals. Also, nature does not give us anything mono-structured. A mono-structured element or mineral by itself or isolated (from other elements) is unstable and will sabotage your health before ultimately killing you.

For example, as humans, we need and require oxygen, but oxygen by itself and not balanced with nitrogen is a poison. Therefore, nature balanced oxygen with nitrogen. Similarly, water is required for life, but nature balanced the water with hydrogen and oxygen. Water like the air (oxygen) we breathe is balanced. Therefore, your minerals and vitamins must also be balanced. The land can convert inorganic elements (minerals) into organic elements by humic acid. Humic acid improves the absorption of all vitamins and minerals, especially those derived from organic sources.

Calcium is one of the most common supplements. Researchers have managed to finagle a study that even shows calcium supplements aren’t useful for boosting the bone density of elderly patients. People are being told that calcium is absolutely worthless if you don’t digest it and absorb it. Calcium needs to have an acidic environment in order to be broken down and assimilated by digestive system. If you don’t have acid in your stomach, then you can’t absorb the calcium. And if you don’t have vitamin D in small intestine, you can’t absorb the calcium, either. There are a lot of senior citizens out there who are spending small fortunes on calcium supplements and antacid tablets, but they’re not getting any sunshine. And that means they’re not getting enough vitamin D. With a vitamin D deficiency, they can’t even absorb the calcium. It’s either going right through their bodies or actually contributing to the buildup of calcification in their kidneys. They’ll probably end up with kidney stones.



Significance of food-based vitamins



It is known that a good diet should supply all necessary nutrients. However, the true story builds a much more complex picture. Namely,

even natural sources of vitamin A in unnatural quantities produce problems for species with particularly high susceptibility to vitamin A

toxicity, like metabolic osteopathy (Polizopoulou et al., 2005). For precursors to vitamin A, the carotenoids, as many as nine factors influence their bioavailability when ingested in food (Van

het Hof et al., 2000). The carotenoid lycopene, which lowers prostate cancer risk, illustrates the integrity of the plant substrate when carotenoids are ingested in food. Cooking improves lycopene

bioavailability because heating and homogenizing lycopene-rich tomatoes into paste disrupts the fibrous plant cell walls, releasing the lycopene for. Partnering carotenoids with certain fats maximizes their intestinal and lymphatic uptake. Humans eating salads with either fat-free or full- fat dressing demonstrated significantly different plasma levels, with those ingesting vegetables dressed in the full-fat version enjoying higheramounts of circulating carotenoids (Brown et al.,


Members of the water-soluble vitamin B class have a reputation of being safe in any amount. Nutritionists have long-advocated vitamin B9, or folate, for cancer prevention. However, a concern

erupted in the 1940s that is now receiving more attention: Too much supplementation with folic acid (the synthetic form of folate) appears to promote tumorigenesis. This springs from its role as a key cofactor in nucleotide synthesis. Large amounts of folic acid facilitate cellular

proliferation, causing growth in neoplastic foci. This finding has provoked calls in the human food-processing industry for curtailing

mandatory folic acid fortification (Mason, 2009).

The lower amounts of folate ordinarily found in food are still viewed as cancer-preventive. Many nonhuman species manufacture vitamin C.

While they rely less on dietary sources, research testing their true capacity shows it falls far short of previous assumptions. Aging hepatocytes lose some ability to synthesize and recycle vitamin

C, producing a conditionally essential status for vitamin C in geriatric dogs and cats. Health status may further influence vitamin C requirements.

A study showed that healthy dogs supplemented with vitamin C produced no improvement in antioxidative capacity or serum IgA and IgG concentrations (Hesta et al., 2009). In contrast, dogs with untreated lymphoma exhibited significant alterations in their antioxidant levels compared to healthy control dogs. After remission, dogs with lymphoma had significantly lower levels of vitamin C, raising questions about the potential need for post-chemotherapy supplementation with dietary antioxidants.

Finally, Vitamin C supplementation, along with vitamins B and E, aminocaproic acid and N-acetylcysteine, disappointingly failed to forestall deterioration in the neurological status of dogs with suspected degenerative myelopathy (Hesta et al., 2009).

In the wild, carnivores obtain vitamin D by

consuming the body fat, blood and liver of their prey; depending on the contents of homemade diets, dogs and cats may not be receiving enough vitamin D (How et al., 1994). They cannot

meet their needs simply through sun exposure, as dogs and cats lack the ability to cutaneously synthesize D3 in adequate amounts. Problems such as “rubber jaw syndrome,” or secondary

hyperparathyroidism, have arisen in young dogs. On the other hand, overnutrition with supplemented Vitamin D, calcium, and calories

in puppy diets has been linked to predisposition for canine elbow dysplasia (Janutta et al., 2008).

The situation is similar with the vitamin E. On a supplement label, natural vitamin E is listed as d-alpha-tocopherol, d-alpha tocopheryl acetate, or d-alpha tocopheryl succinate. In contrast, synthetic forms of vitamin E are labeled with a dl- prefix. There is little difference between the natural and a synthetic form of vitamin E, but natural is better (Challem, 2000). Natural vitamin E refers to eight chemically different compounds obtained from plants: four tocopherols and four trienols. Alpha-tocopherol is the most biologically active form of vitamin E, and its natural form consists of one isomer. In contrast, synthetic vitamin E (i.e. synthetic alpha- tocopherol) consists of eight stereoisomeric forms of alpha-tocopherol, with only one (about 12 % of the synthetic molecule) equal to the naturally occurring stereoisomeric form (Yu et al., 2008).

The other seven isomers range in potency from 21 to 90 % of natural d-alpha-tocopherol. This may appear to be arcane nutritional chemistry, but it is key to understanding how the body absorbs natural and synthetic supplements differently. Molecular structure determines how the body uses vitamin E. Researchers have found

that natural vitamin E assimilates far better than synthetic versions. Specific binding and transport proteins produced in the liver select the natural d-alpha form of vitamin E and largely ignore all

other forms (Traber, 1998).


Problem of synthetic vitamins


What occurs with all synthetic vitamins? If a person has in body enough reserves of the missing parts of a particular vitamin when combined with the vitamin isolate from the synthetic they will

experience some initial relief. But as soon as those reserves are used up, the synthetic will no longer work, the symptoms will return and the

person will now experience the often unpleasant effects of vitamin imbalance and deficiency. The body treats them as toxins, leading to the expensive urine” of excess vitamin intake

referred to frequently, since the human system via the urinary tract attempts to rid itself of the major quantity of such foreign chemicals (De Cava, 1997).

De Cava points out that vitamin B1, as synthetic thiamine (thiamine HCl) will initially allay fatigue but will eventually cause fatigue by the buildup of pyruvic acid. This leads to the vicious cycle of thinking more and more Thiamine is needed, resulting in more and more fatigue along with other accumulated complaints. Also, natural food-source

vitamins are enzymatically alive, and man-made synthetic vitamins are dead chemicals. True whole food vitamins don’t leech the body of their missing co-factors and don’t cause a vitamin imbalance leading to the return and increase of symptoms. True vitamins also don’t need mega doses to create their effect. A high number of milligrams is often an indication of a synthetic source.

A study in the of some 30,000 Finnish subjects showed conclusively that synthetic vitamin A had no antioxidant effect whatsoever (NEJM study group, 1994). A true antioxidant helps to protect heart muscle, lungs, and artery surfaces from breaking down prematurely. In this study, the subjects who received the synthetic beta-carotene actually had an 8% higher incidence of fatal heart attacks, strokes,

and lung cancer than those who got the placebo (sugar pill). Stands to reason: the synthetic brought no vitamin activity to the tissues that needed it. As a dead, purified chemical introduced into the body, the synthetic further stressed the immune system, the liver, and the kidneys which all had to try to break down this odd chemical and remove it from the body. It would be bad enough if they were

harmless, but synthetic vitamins actually have a net negative effect.


Identification of Synthetic Vitamins


Step 1. Search for words listed in the ingredients that begin with “dl.” When a word contains “dl” in the prefix, it is an indication that the vitamin is synthetic. As an example, “dl-alpha-tocopherol

acetate” and “dl-alpha-tocopherol” are synthetic forms of vitamin E.

Step 2. Find words that end with “ate” or “ide” in the list of ingredients. These words indicate that the manufacturer used synthetic materials for increasing the vitamin’s potency and stability. Some words to look for include nitrate, acetate, sodium ascorbate,

sodium benzoate, chloride, hydrochloride, silicon dioxide and titanium dioxide.

Step 3. Find the synthetic form of the vitamin listed under the ingredient list. Natural vitamins come from natural food sources. If you see the vitamin listed as the vitamin itself, such as “vitamin D,”

then it is sure to be the synthetic version. Look for food sources such as “citrus” instead of “vitamin C” or “parsley” instead of “vitamin K.”

Step 4. Identify the words “natural” on the vitamin

bottle. If the bottle says, “100 percent natural” the vitamin supplement does not contain synthetics. On the other hand, a label that says, “natural,” might have at least some synthetic components.

According to Earl Mindell’s, only 10 % of the product must come from natural food sources in order for a company to claim “natural” on the

product’s label. If the product label does not say “100 percent animal-based” or “100 percent plant- based,” the supplement is synthetic.

Step 5. Look for the vitamin potency listed on the product’s label. According to the Organic Consumers Association, if the vitamin supplement has a high or otherwise unnatural potency, the

product is synthetic. For example, a product that provides 1,000 percent of vitamin C is unusually high. This is ten times the amount you need daily, and an amount that even a healthy diet - consisting

of natural, whole-food sources - cannot provide. Labels. The new nutritional disclosure labels actually make it more difficult to determine what healthy ingredients are and what are not.

The old labels (still on many products), tell you more about what is really in the product. As a general rule of thumb, vitamins listed in the ingredient section of the label, it is synthetic or fractionated, otherwise it would be listed as the food. Now on the new labeling, you have to look under the “Nutrition facts” section as well (where it lists what percentage of the daily value of basic nutrients is contained in

the product). Where the vitamins are listed, look where it displays parenthesis (for example: vitamin A (as beta-carotene)”. The word “as” generally

denotes a synthetic or fractionated source, unless it sounds like a food. The ingredient label (since it is supposed to be food that you are eating) should sound like a food. So instead of the label saying, for

example, “vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)”, it should say “vitamin C (from acerola cherries)”.


A GOOD nutritional supplement would have ingredients like:


Carrot Powder, beet Powder, flax meal powder, brown rice powder, alfalfa juice powder, green tea leaf powder.


A BAD nutritional supplement would have ingredients like:


 Dicalcium phosphate, magnesuin oxide, ascorbic acid, d-alpha tocopherol, thiamine hydrochloride, ferrous fumerate, beta-carotene, hydrogenated vegetable oil, croscarmellose sodium, silicon dioxide, talc, camuba wax, yelloo beeswax, artificail colors (titanium dioxide, FD&C Yello wNo.6, FD&D Red No.40 FD&C Blue No.1).



Science cannot create life. Only life can create life. Obviously, there is a difference. Supplements food-based, isolated or synthetic, has detracted from the most important part of health and healing.

The basics of proper diet, exercise, detoxification, structure, mental/emotional and spiritual health must all be in order for true healing to occur. No supplement will work on its own if these

foundations are not in place. However, even when these foundations are in place, or if the situation is acute enough to necessitate a more immediate treatment response, supplement support may still

be needed for a while. You may also want to take one or more food-based supplements to ensure you are getting an adequate array of nutrients in your diet. When these situations arise, it is recommend food-based supplements be your first choice. How to known whether or not a supplement good choice? For starters, make sure it has the following characteristics: it is as close as possible to its natural form. The utmost care has been taken in all phases of its production,

from growing its ingredients, to manufacturing, testing for potency and quality control. Select from companies that have a long track record of providing high quality products that produce

good clinical results. Most vitamins sold are not food. They are

synthetically processed petroleum and/or hydrogenated sugar extracts, even if they say “natural” on the label. They are not in the

same chemical form or structural form as real vitamins are in foods; thus they are not natural for the human body. True natural food vitamins are superior to synthetic ones. Food vitamins are functionally superior to non-food vitamins as they tend to be preferentially absorbed and/ or retained by the body. Isolated, non-food

vitamins, even when not chemically different are

only fractionated nutrients. Studies cited throughout this paper suggest that the bioavailability of food vitamins is better than

that of most isolated USP vitamins, that they may have better effects on maintaining aspects of human health beyond traditional vitamin

deficiency syndromes, and at least some seem to be preferentially retained by the human body. It is not always clear if these advantages are due to the physiochemical form of the vitamin, with the

other food constituents that are naturally found with them, or some combination. Regardless, it seems logical to conclude that for purposes of maintaining normal health, natural vitamins are superior to synthetic ones. Unlike some synthetic vitamins, no natural vitamin has been found to not perform all of its natural functions. The truth

is that only foods, or supplements composed of 100% foods, can be counted on as not containing non-food vitamin analogues. How do you know if the vitamins on your kitchen counter are from whole foods or if they are synthetic? If the list of ingredients includes an actual vitamin like vitamin C” rather than an actual food that contains natural vitamin C like “acerola cherry powder”, you can bet that it is a synthetic vitamin. If you choose to use nutritional supplements, it is in your best interest to use only those products that list actual foods as their ingredients rather than synthetic and isolated vitamins. While some synthetic and isolated vitamins have been shown to provide minimal health benefits, on the whole, most of them cause more harm than good and you are far better off spending your money on whole foods. It is important to note that the principles in this article are just as relevant and applicable to minerals and mineral supplements.

Another VERY good article about Vitamins

Ascorbic Acid Is Not Vitamin C – Whole Food Vitamins:

This will be a short chapter, but after you’re finished with it, you will know more about vitamins than 95% of clinical nutritionists, doctors, supplement sales force, or bodybuilders. If that sounds arrogant or overstated, it really isn’t my fault. I’m just a messenger; a purveyor of information. Either I’m right or the 95% are right; can’t be both.

Without further ado, here’s the kernel:

Ascorbic acid is not vitamin C.
Alpha tocopherol is not vitamin E.
Retinoic acid is not vitamin A

And so on through the other vitamins. Vast sums of money have been expended to make these myths part of Conventional Wisdom. If you have several college degrees and all this is news to you, don’t feel bad. Unless you think your education ended at Commencement. Which is generally true.


Vitamins are not individual molecular compounds. Vitamins are biological complexes. They are multi-step biochemical interactions whose action is dependent upon a number of variables within the biological terrain. Vitamin activity only takes place when all conditions are met within that environment, and when all co-factors and components of the entire vitamin complex are present and working together. Vitamin activity is even more than the sum of all those parts; it also involves timing.

Vitamins cannot be isolated from their complexes and still perform their specific life functions within the cells. When isolated into artificial commercial forms, like ascorbic acid, these purified synthetics act as drugs in the body. They are no longer vitamins, and to call them such is inaccurate.

A vitamin is

“a working process consisting of the nutrient, enzymes, coenzymes, antioxidants, and trace minerals activators.”

– Royal Lee “What Is a Vitamin?” Applied Trophology, Aug 1956


Dr. Royal Lee was the pioneer researcher in the field of whole food vitamins. For decades he documented the basic facts summarized in this chapter. His work has never been scientifically refuted. Anyone who seriously undertakes the study of vitamins today corroborates Lee’s work. His story is a fascinating study in itself, a study of indomitable perseverance in the pursuit of true principles. Jensen tells us that Royal Lee’s work will not be appreciated until the next century.

This is the next century, and it hasn’t happened yet.

Lee felt the full weight of organized drugs/medicine bearing down on him. Reading like something out of Schindler’s List, we learn that the FDA not only persecuted Lee for challenging the economics of synthetic vitamins, produced by giant drug companies, but that he was actually ordered by a court to burn all his research of the past 20 years! Burn his research! When has that ever happened in this country? They didn’t even do that to Larry Flynt. Or Andy Wakefield.

Going off on a tangent, ever wondered how the FDA attained its present position as attack dog for the drug companies and food manufacturers? It’s another whole story in itself. The precursor of the FDA was the Bureau of Chemistry. Up until 1912 the Bureau of Chemistry was headed up by a man named Dr. Harvey W. Wiley. Here’s a quote from Dr. Wiley [7] that illustrates where his interests lay:

No food product in our country would have any trace of benzoic acid, sulfurous acid or sulfites or any alum or saccharin, save for medical purposes. No soft drink would contain caffeine or theobromine. No bleached flour would enter interstate commerce. Our foods and drugs would be wholly without any form of adulteration and misbranding. The health of our people would be vastly improved and the life greatly extended. The manufacturers of our food supply, and especially the millers, would devote their energies to improving the public health and promoting happiness in every home by the production of whole ground, unbolted cereal flours and meals.”

The History of a Crime Against the Pure Food Law, 1912

Now obviously we can’t have a dangerous lunatic like this in charge of the public nutrition, can we? Dr. Wiley actually filed suit against the Coca-Cola company in an attempt to keep their artificial product out of interstate commerce, and off the market. Fortunately Wiley was eventually replaced by a saner individual, more attuned to the real nutritional needs of the American people, as determined by the experts who knew what was best for us: the food manufacturers. This was Dr. Elmer Nelson, and in his words we get an idea of the change in philosophy that marked the transformation of the Bureau of Chemistry into the FDA:

“It is wholly unscientific to state that a well-fed body is more able to resist disease than a poorly-fed body. My overall opinion is that there hasn’t been enough experimentation to prove that dietary deficiencies make one susceptible to disease.”

– Elmer Nelson MD – Washington Post 26 Oct 49 [9]

Oh, that’s better. Now we’ve got somebody who came to play.

Bernard Jensen [3] illustrates how the tobacco industry and the food giants like Coca Cola were indirectly behind the legal persecution of Royal Lee. Cigarette ads in the 40s and 50s showed medical doctors promoting the digestive benefits of smoking Camels. Or the advertising of Coke and other refined sugar foods stating that “science has shown how sugar can help keep your appetite and weight under control.” (Empty Harvest)

During this same period, Royal Lee [6] was kept in courts for years, fighting to keep the right to advertise his vitamin products, because he was a threat to the food manufacturers. Lee knew they were poisoning the American public. He proved that refined sugars and devitalized, bleached flours were destroying the arteries and the digestive system, causing heart disease and cancer.

Almost as bad as today.


OK, natural vs. synthetic. Let’s start with Vitamin C.

Most sources equate vitamin C with ascorbic acid, as though they were the same thing. They’re not. Ascorbic acid is an isolate, a fraction, a distillate of naturally occurring vitamin C. In addition to ascorbic acid, vitamin C must include rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components as shown in the figure below:

____________A s c o r b i c A c id______________



Factor J
Factor K
Factor P

______________A s c o r b i c A c i d______________


In addition, mineral co-factors must be available in proper amounts in order to have vitamin activity.

If any of these parts are missing, there is no vitamin C, no vitamin activity. When some of them are present, the body will draw on its own stores to try and make up the differences, so that the whole vitamin may be present. Only then will vitamin activity take place, provided that all other conditions and co-factors are present.

Ascorbic acid is described merely as the “antioxidant wrapper” portion of vitamin C; ascorbic acid protects the functional parts of the vitamin from rapid oxidation or breakdown. ([10] Somer p 58 “Vitamin C: A Lesson in Keeping An Open MindThe Nutrition Report)

For decades, over 90% of ascorbic acid in this country was manufactured at a facility in Nutley, New Jersey, owned by Hoffman-LaRoche, one of the world’s biggest drug manufacturers (1 800 526 0189). Here ascorbic acid is made from a process involving cornstarch and volatile acids. For decades, most U.S. vitamin companies bought their bulk ascorbic acid from this single facility. After that, marketing takes over. Each company makes its own labels, its own claims, and its own formulations, each one claiming to have the superior form of vitamin C, even though it all came from the same place, and it’s really not vitamin C at all.


The word synthetic means two things:

– occurs nowhere in nature

From the outset, it is crucial to understand the difference between vitamins and vitamin activity. The vitamin is the biochemical complex. Vitamin activity means the actual biological and cellular changes that take place when the stage is set for the vitamin complex to act.

Think of it like gas and a car. Pumping the gas into the tank doesn’t necessarily mean the car is going anywhere. Other conditions and factors must be also present, in order for Activity to occur. The gas line to the carburetor must be clear, the carburetor jets must be set, there must be an exact mixture of air flow, the ignition must be turned on, the spark plugs must be clean, the exact amount of gas must reach each spark plug right before it fires, no gas must be left over in the cylinder after the plug fires, etc. Getting the idea? If any of this stuff is missing, there’s no Activity: the car doesn’t run, or at least not very well.

Amazing as it may sound if you’re hearing this for the first time, vitamins are more than the synthetic fractions we are commonly taught they are. The ascorbic acid you buy at the grocery store every few weeks, thinking you are buying Vitamin C, is just a chemical copy of naturally occurring ascorbic acid, which itself is still only a fraction of the actual Vitamin C.

Real vitamin C is part of something living, and as such, can impart life.

Your synthetic, fractionated chemical ascorbic acid never grew in the ground, never saw the light of day, never was alive or part of anything alive. It’s a laboratory chemical, a cornstarch derivative, a sulfuric acid by-product. In your body it’s just another drug. Synthetic vitamins have toxic effects from mega-doses and actually can increase the white blood cell count. Vitamins are only necessary in minute quantities on a daily basis. Whole food vitamins, by contrast, are not toxic since the vitamin is complexed in its integral working form, and requires nothing from the body, and triggers no immune response.


Scurvy is a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency. Scurvy is characterized by bleeding gums, slow wound healing, softening bones, loose teeth, ulcerations of the mouth and digestive tract, general weight loss and fatigue. From 1650 to 1850 half of all seamen on transoceanic voyages died of scurvy.

It was discovered by ship surgeon Thomas Lind in the early 1800s that British sailors were spared the disease altogether simply by a diet rich in citrus fruits. Since limes travelled well, they were the common choice during the early years, and thus the expression “limeys” was coined to describe British sailors. It was later found both at sea and in prison fare that potatoes were equally successful in preventing scurvy, and they much cheaper to obtain. (Lancet, 1842) [11,12]

We find that there is less than 20 mg of ascorbic acid in a potato. Yet this small amount, since it is complexed in a food source, is all the body needs not only to prevent scurvy, but also to cure it, even in its advanced state. Such a remedy is described in detail in Richard Dana’s phenomenal journal Two Years Before the Mast, written in 1842 [12].

Whole food vitamin C as found in potatoes, onions, and citrus fruits is able to quickly cure any case of scurvy. By contrast, the fractionated chemical ascorbic acid has been shown to be insufficient in resolving a scurvy condition, simply because it does not act as a nutrient. (Lancet 1842)

Ascorbic acid simply cannot confer vitamin activity, as taught by the discoverer of vitamin C himself, another Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Albert Szent-Georgi.

Szent-Georgi discovered vitamin C in 1937. In all his research however, Szent-Georgi found that he could never cure scurvy with the isolated ascorbic acid itself. Realizing that he could always cure scurvy with the “impure” vitamin C found in simple foods, Szent-Georgi discovered that other factors had to be at work in order for vitamin activity to take place. So he returned to the laboratory and eventually made the discovery of another member of the vitamin C complex, as shown in the diagram above: rutin. All the factors in the complex, as Royal Lee and Dr. Szent-Georgi both came to understand, ascorbic acid, rutin, and the other factors, were synergists: co-factors which together sparked the “functional interdependence of biologically related nutrient factors.” (Empty Harvest p120) The term “wheels within wheels” was coined to describe the interplay of co-factors.

Each of the other synergists in the C complex has a separate function:

P factors for blood vessel strength
J factors for oxygen-carrying capacity of red cells
tyrosinase as an essential enzyme for enhancing white blood cell effectiveness

Ascorbic acid is just the antioxidant outer shell – the protector of all these other synergists so that they will be able to perform their individual functions.

Now I can hear you asking, what about Linus Pauling, double Nobel Prize laureate, and his lifetime espousal of megadosing on ascorbic acid – up to 10 grams per day. He lived to be 93. Are we saying that he took a synthetic vitamin all that time? Yes, that’s exactly right. Bernard Jensen suggests that ascorbic acid has an acidifying effect in part of the digestive tract, making an unfriendly environment for viruses, Candida, and pathogenic bacteria. Very doubtful that Pauling’s good health was the result of synthetic vitamin activity. Good genetics and maintaining an internal bioterrain not conducive to inflammation are likely what brought longevity to Linus Pauling. He eventually died of cancer at 93, but then, to quote Freddie Mercury, who wants to live forever?

Dr. Royal Lee’s phrase “ wheels within wheels” always pops up in any informed discussion of whole food vitamins. Essentially it means that individual synergists cannot function as a vitamin in a chemically isolated form, like ascorbic acid. Vitamins are living complexes which contribute to other higher living complexes – like cell repair, collagen manufacture, and maintenance of blood circulation. Ascorbic acid is not a living complex. It is a copy of a part of a living complex known as vitamin C.

Ascorbic acid is a fractionated, crystalline isolate of vitamin C.

Why are you a high school graduate or a college graduate or a doctor, and you don’t know this? Because drug manufacturers like things clean and simple and cheap to produce. To this simple fact add the politics and the control of information, which always come into play when anyone mentions the word “billions,” and you are beginning to get the idea about where to begin your investigation. Burned his research???


Most vitamins cannot be made by the body. They must be taken in as food. The best sources then are obviously whole foods, rich in vitamins. Because of soil depletion, mineral depletion, pesticides, air pollution, and erosion, it is common knowledge that foods grown in American soil today have only a fraction of the nutrient value of 70 years ago. That means a fraction of the vitamins and minerals necessary for normal human cell function. Royal Lee described the American diet as the cultivation and production of “devitalized foods.” Dr. Weston Price describes these empty products as the “foods of commerce.”

Think it’s gotten better or worse since their time? Thus the necessity for supplementation.


Vitamins and minerals are not functionally separable. They make each other work. Example: vitamin D is necessary for the body to absorb calcium. Copper is necessary for vitamin C activity. And so on. Mineral deficiencies can cause vitamin deficiencies, and vice versa. Epidemic mineral deficiency in America is a well-documented result of systematic soil depletion. (See Minerals chapter:

So that is the other prime difference between whole food vitamins and synthetics: whole food vitamins contain within them many essential trace minerals necessary for their synergistic operation. Synthetic vitamins contain no trace minerals, relying on, and depleting, the body’s own mineral reserves.


Following the German agricultural methods of Von Leibig in the mid-1800s, American farmers found that NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) was all that was necessary for crops to look good. (Frost p7)

As long as NPK is added to the soil, crops can be produced and sold year after year from the same soil. They look OK. But the trace minerals vital for human nutrition are virtually absent from most American soil after all these years. Many of these minerals, such as zinc, copper, and magnesium, are necessary co-factors of vitamin activity.

Depleted topsoil is one simple, widespread mechanism of both vitamin and mineral deficiency in American produce today. This doesn’t even take into account the tons of poisonous herbicides and pesticides dumped on crops. According to the UN, two million tons of pesticides are used worldwide annually. (Jensen, p69)

That was in Jensen’s day, back in the 80s These days, over 1 billion tons of pesticides are used annually, by the US alone ! [22]

American agri-business has one motive: profit. Such a focus has resulted in an output of empty produce and a nation of unhealthy people. The earth’s immune system is its soil. To be vital and capable of growing vital foods, soil must be rich in both minerals and soil-based organisms – life forms. Healthy produce naturally resists insects. Pesticides prevent plants from acquiring that natural immunity. Just like vaccines in humans.

Insects are like bad bacteria in the body: they are attracted to diseased tissue, though they do not cause it.


And we’re still only talking about people who actually eat raw fruits and vegetables, which is a minority. Processed food composes the majority of what most Americans eat. The only nutrients in most processed foods are “enriched” and “fortified” as described below.

When a doctor says that food supplements are all unnecessary because we can get everything we need from our food, that doctor is lacking basic information published and agreed upon by his own peers. Whether or not we need supplementation is no longer an issue, except for one who is totally out of touch. The issue is what kind and how much. Vitamin and mineral deficiency can be tagged to practically ANY disease syndrome known to man. DW Cavanaugh, MD of Cornell University actually concluded that

There is only one major disease, and that is malnutrition.” (Jensen, p8)

Malnutrition of the affluent is the natural result of the foods of commerce.


The best vitamins are called whole food vitamins. It will be difficult finding this out online, however, because the Web is dominated by mainstream nutritional theory, which means pharmaceutical underwriting. In the area of vitamins, the internet is 99% marketing; 1% actual information.

But then again, this isn’t Mission Difficult. This is Mission Impossible, Mr Hunt.

There are about 110 companies who sell vitamins in the US. Less than 5 of them use whole food vitamins. The reason is simple: whole food vitamins are expensive to make. A few of the largest pharmaceutical firms in the world mass produce synthetic vitamins for the vast majority of these 110 “vitamin” companies, who then put their own label on them, and every company claims theirs is the best! It’s ridiculous! Americans spend over $37 billion per year for synthetic vitamins. (Bradley, Nutrition Business Journal, 2015 [30])

Whole food vitamins are obtained by taking a vitamin-rich plant, removing the water and the fiber in a cold vacuum process, free of chemicals, and then packaging for stability. The entire vitamin complex in this way can be captured intact, retaining its “functional and nutritional integrity.” (DeCava p.23.) Upon ingestion, the body is not required to draw on its own reserves in order to complete any missing elements from the vitamin complex.

Mainstream marketing of vitamins and minerals has successfully created the myth that vitamins and minerals may be isolated from each other, that correct amounts may be measured out, and then we can derive total benefit from taking these fractionated chemical creations. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Vitamins and minerals, and also enzymes, work closely together as co-factors for each other’s efficacy. If one part is missing, or in the wrong form or the wrong amount, entire chains of metabolic processes will not proceed normally. Result: downward spiralling of health, imperceptible for long periods of time.


What is the marketing philosophy behind the prevalence of the type of synthetic vitamins available in the supermarket and mall vitamin stores? Simple: profit above all else. Once the public is shown that vitamin supplementation is necessary, the rest is marketing. Marketing is the art of persuading by suspending logic and twisting data into junk science.

Example: what’s the actual difference in composition between Wheaties and Total, two cereals put out by the same company? Total is advertised as being much more nutrient-rich than “ordinary” Wheaties. Look at the labels. What justifies the extra $1.30 for a box of Total? Answer: 1.5 cents worth of synthetic vitamins sprayed over the Wheaties. That’s it! That’s what “vitamin enriched” always means.

The other trick word is “fortified.” Generally that means that the food itself is devoid of nutrients or enzymes, so they tried to pump it up a little with some “vitamins.” Cheap synthetic vitamin sprays are all that is required for the manufacturer to use labels like “enriched” and “fortified.”

These words are red flags – if a food needs to be fortified or enriched, you can bet it was already dead.

The mega-vitamin theory doesn’t really hold when it comes to synthetics: If A Little Is Good, More Is Better. Macro doses of vitamin E, and also vitamin D have been shown to decrease immune function significantly. (DeCava) It stands to reason. Vitamins by definition are necessary in phenomenally small doses.

The discoverer of thiamine, a B vitamin, and the man who came up with the word vitamin, Dr. Casimir Funk, has this to say about synthetics:

“Synthetic vitamins: these are highly inferior to vitamins from natural sources, also the synthetic product is well known to be far more toxic.”

Nutrition authority DeCava describes it:

“Natural food-source vitamins are enzymatically alive. Man-made synthetic vitamins are dead chemicals.”

The Real Truth About Vitamins p 209

Oxymorons: military intelligence, rap music, Homeland Security, health insurance, synthetic vitamins.

The marketing of fractionated crystalline synthetic vitamins has been so successful that most nutritionists and doctors are unaware that there is something missing from these “vitamins.” Vitamin manufacturers compete for customers with identical products – they all bought their synthetic vitamins from the same couple of drug companies. To differentiate their product, each makes claims of “high potency.” Our vitamins are higher potency than theirs, etc.

The point is, the higher the potency, the more the druglike effects are present. Natural whole food vitamins are very low potency. Remember the 20 mg of vitamin C in a potato that was able to cure a patient of scurvy? That was low potency. Low potency is all we need. Low potency is enough to bring about vitamin activity. High potency overshoots the mark – the chemical is very pure and refined, like the difference between white sugar and the type of sugar that’s in an apple.


Generally speaking, if milligrams are being discussed at length, the author has no clue about vitamins. Synthetic vitamins are refined, high potency chemicals, and therefore may be accurately measured in milligrams, just like drugs. This has nothing to do with vitamin activity or nutrition, except in a negative way.

It’s one of those give-away phrases, like ‘carbs’ or calories, that indicate the speaker is generally unqualified.


The same type of incomplete action can be seen with any synthetic vitamin.

Let’s take beta carotene for a minute, which the body can turn into vitamin A.

Now you’ll remember that vitamin A is necessary for good eyesight, DNA synthesis, and protects cells from free radicals. A study reported in Apr 94 in the NEJM of some 30,000 Finnish subjects showed conclusively that synthetic vitamin A had no antioxidant effect whatsoever. [15]

A true antioxidant helps to protect heart muscle, lungs, and artery surfaces from breaking down prematurely. In this study, the subjects who received the synthetic beta carotene actually had an 8% higher incidence of fatal heart attacks, strokes, and lung cancer than those who got the placebo (sugar pill). Stands to reason: the synthetic brought no vitamin activity to the tissues that needed it.

As a dead, purified chemical introduced into the body, the synthetic further stressed the immune system, the liver, and the kidneys which all had to try to break down this odd chemical and remove it from the body. It would be bad enough if they were harmless, but synthetic vitamins actually have a net negative effect.

Vitamin A

was first discovered in 1919. By 1924, it had been broken down and separated from its natural whole food complex: “purified.” By 1931, LaRoche – one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, even today – had succeeded in “synthesizing” vitamin A. That means they had created a purely chemical copy of a fraction of naturally occurring vitamin A. Naturally occurring vitamin A is found associated with an entire group of other components:

– Retinols
– Retinoids
– Retinal
– Carotenoids
– Carotenes
– Fatty acids
– Vitamin C
– Vitamin E
– Vitamin B
– Vitamin D
– Enzymes
– Minerals

Vitamins and Minerals, Somer 1992

Isolated from these other factors, vitamin A is a fraction which cannot perform its biological functions. Taken as a synthetic, it must then draw on this list of resources already in the body in order to complete its make-up. Whole food vitamin A, by contrast, is already complete and ready to go.

Most synthetic vitamin A consists only of retinal, retinol, or retinoic acid. The well-publicized potential for toxicity with mega doses of vitamin A involves one of these three. Vitamin A toxicity, known as hypervitaminosis, always results from an excess of synthetic, “purified” vitamin A, and never from whole food vitamin A. (DeCava, p 86)

Other effects of vitamin A toxicity include:

– tumor enhancement
– joint disorders
– osteoporosis
– extreme dryness of eyes, mouth and skin,
– enlargement of liver and spleen
– immune depression
– birth defects


is a precursor the body can convert to vitamin A. Unfortunately, as a supplement, synthetic beta carotene is usually “stabilized” in refined vegetable oils. In this trans fatty acid form, oxidation occurs and the chemically “pure” beta carotene can no longer act as a nutrient, because it was changed.

Almost all synthetic beta carotene is produced by the Swiss drug giant Hoffman-LaRoche. This form can no longer be converted to vitamin A. The best it can be is worthless, and the worst is toxic.

Natural vitamin A and beta carotene are well known as immune boosters and cancer fighters, in their role as antioxidants. Synthetic vitamin A by contrast has actually brought about significant increases in cancer. The same Finnish study we saw above provided smokers with large doses of synthetic beta carotene. Lung cancer incidence increased 18%! (NEJM Apr 94 “The Alpha Tocopherol Beta Carotene Cancer Prevention Study Group”) [15]

These findings were corroborated two years later in another study written up in Lancet. Pharmacologic doses of synthetic beta carotenes were found to block the antioxidant activity of the other 50 naturally occurring carotenoids in the diet. Anti-cancer activity was thus blocked by the synthetic. (Lancet 1996) [14]

With the vast outpouring of wrong information about vitamins A and C, the findings of a 1991 article in Health Counselor are no surprise: 50% of Americans are deficient in vitamin A and 41% are deficient in vitamin C.

Synthetic vitamins cannot prevent deficiencies.


In one experiment, synthetic vitamin B (thiamine) was shown to render 100% of a group of pigs sterile! 100% would be considered a significant finding. (Dr. Barnett Sure, Journ Natr 1939) Perhaps the fact that synthetic vitamin B comes from coal tar, maybe that has something to do with it, you think? Then there’s vitamin B12, which comes from activated sewage sludge. (Frost p 60) Been shooting blanks since you started on those multi’s?

For the licensed dieticians and clinical nutritionists reading this in disbelief because it is too “unscientific,” consider the way Theron Randolph MD delineated between natural and synthetic:

“A synthetically derived substance may cause a reaction in a chemically susceptible person when the same material of natural origin is tolerated, despite the two substances having identical chemical structures. The point is illustrated by the frequency of clinical reactions to synthetic vitamins – especially vitamin B1 and C – when the [same] naturally occurring vitamins are tolerated.”

Always keep this idea in mind when confronted with the phony marketing hook “bio-identical.” If it’s not made by your body, it can’t be bio-identical.


According to Los Angeles naturopath, Dr. Jack Singh, all commercial lecithins in supplements, as well as most vitamin D, comes from irradiated vegetable oils. That’s rancid, oxidizing trans fatty acids! A birthday party of free radicals. This is the precise mechanism for arterial wall breakdown prior to plaque deposits, then arteriosclerosis, then heart disease. I thought we were supposed to be taking vitamins to stay healthy!


Why is this information so difficult to find? It’s in none of the “alternative” health ‘zines, blogs, sites, or any of the mainstream media.

Alternative-Lite guru Julian Whittaker, in his summer 1998 newsletter actually had the temerity to state outright “Synthetic vitamins and whole food vitamins are identical.” I’m sure his synthetic vitamin company and all its retailers were reassured by this incredibly arrogant and flagrantly inaccurate pronouncement from the fat man. But who is objecting? Only those clients of the 5 companies who know enough to take whole food vitamins, because they have become educated to realize the difference. These are the vast minority, having no control of the media.

Royal Lee and Harvey Wiley lost. Nobody knows who they are today, except we few. This is no accident. What everybody does know is Pepsi and Wonder Bread and prednisone and Double Whoppers with Cheese and Zantac and Baskin-Robbins and Long’s Drug Store. And grocery store vitamins: synthetic vitamins. That’s America, today as the product of yesterday. Control of information in America today is hands down the most sophisticated systems of influence ever devised. The simple ideas contained in this chapter are simply not available to the mass consciousness. The documentation is out there, but you really must persist.

100 years ago, if a medical doctor saw a case of cancer he would call all his colleagues to come and have a look, telling them it was unlikely they would see another case, as cancer was so rare. People rarely died of heart attacks; in fact the term heart attack itself didn’t even exist. There was no incidence at all of atherosclerosis. Diabetes was practically unheard of. What did they eat? Fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, whole grains, butter, and lard. But none of it was processed with drugs and chemicals.

Today one in three dies of cancer. One in two dies of heart disease. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. (Vital Statistics) For anyone born after 2003, there is a one in 3 chance of Type 2 diabetes by 2030. Is that progress? If you are a food manufacturer it is, and especially if you are a drug manufacturer.

In 2007 the WHO ranked the US as #39 in the world in infant mortality. Today, we’re at # 54 [] Male sperm count is less than 50% of what it was in 1929. (1981 University of Florida report, Natural vs. Synthetic) Infant mortality is up; birth defects are up. We spend $1.5 trillion per year for ‘health care’, most of which goes for administration and executive salaries.

Who are the largest advertisers for TV, and online and printed media? Right: drug companies and food manufacturers. Do they want to keep the ball rolling? You bet. Will they kill you to do it? You bet. Ask Jeff Bradstreet. Do they want people to take charge of their own health by natural inexpensive foods and supplements? Negative. A cure for cancer has been “right around the corner” since Nixon’s “war on cancer.”. People are starting to ask questions; they’re less inclined to believe the slick ads coming every 10 minutes on TV and in Newsweek.

Perhaps Hippocrates did not envision doctors as detail men or drug reps. He most likely thought like Henry Bieler, MD:

“Nature, if given the opportunity is always the greatest healer. It is the physician’s role to assist in this healing, to play a supporting role.” – Finding the Right Cure for You

So, what do you do? Well, you may now have some insight that your vitamin needs are not being met by the GNC generics. Wallach used to talk about expensive urine from these unmetabolized grocery store synthetic placebos.

The water- soluble vitamins are best obtained through organic produce grown in mineral-rich soil. The best supplements in this category are the top-shelf green foods, like David Sandoval’s Best of Greens, and its equivalents.

The fat- soluble vitamins, A, E, and D are best obtained through fish, raw dairy, avocado, raw nuts, raw coconut, and clean meats. High end supplements like Udo’s Choice, MOR, and Nordic Naturals can round out your EFA requirements

Beyond this it’s MLM marketing roulette, and if you can’t spot the mark in the first 5 minutes, baby, it’s you.

Magnesium Stearate is found in the majority of “nutritional” supplements sold throughout the world today. Read the article by Dr. Mercola and see why it is good to NOT consume Magnesuim Stearate.

Magnesium Stearate: Does Your Supplement Contain This Potentially Hazardous Ingredient?

Story at-a-glance

  • Many supplement makers add “flow agents” and other fillers to their supplements. One potentially hazardous additive commonly used is magnesium stearate.
  • Magnesium stearate is essentially a chalk-like substance, which prevents the supplements from sticking together and allows the machinery to run smoother and faster, which equates to cost savings during the manufacturing process. Magnesium stearate is not a source of magnesium and has no benefits, but may have a detrimental effect on your immune function as stearic acid has been linked to suppression of T cells. The filler also stimulates your gut to form a biofilm, which can prevent proper absorption of nutrients in your digestive tract

By Dr. Mercola

It's common knowledge that drugs, vitamins or supplements contain more than just the active ingredient. Something has to encapsulate them―hold them together―in a form that not only makes them usable, but producible by a manufacturer in massive quantities.

In the U.S. many supplement makers are adding "flow agents" into their capsules. Their only purpose is to keep ingredients from sticking to equipment during mixing and compression. They make manufacturing faster and easier, but it's not impossible to produce the final product without them. Not using them simply adds to manufacturing costs and final sales price of the product, but there is clearly no reason this ingredient is added for consumer benefit.

Magnesium stearate is a commonly used and potentially harmful additive found in many supplements. This is a substance I have warned about for a long time because of its subtle ability to cause possible harm to your intestine, possibly even preventing the proper absorption of nutrients.

Potentially Harmful Effects of Magnesium Stearate

Magnesium stearate is formed by adding a magnesium ion to stearic acid. The compound has lubricating properties, which is why it's often used in the making of supplements, as it allows the machinery to run faster and smoother, and prevents the pills or capsules from sticking to each other.

However, previous research has shown that stearic acid suppresses T cells—your natural killer cells—which are a key component of your immune system1. According to that study, stearic acid causes the collapse of cell membrane integrity—an effect that was found to be time and dose dependent—which, ultimately, can destroy cell function.

In my view, if you're taking a supplement, making sure it's a high quality, natural food-based supplement that does not include potentially harmful fillers and additives such as magnesium stearate.

This week’s Testimonies!


Michelle Gugel 15 hours ago 

I have listened to Kari Rivera and all the same we are just sticking with your protocol Mark.its working great ! I'm going to write my first testimony for her tonight. I'm about ready to jump out of my skin! 10 years on epilepsy drugs and in less than a month on MMS, she's not taking seizure drugs anymore and no epileptic fits!! OMG



Hi Mark,

Besides my lungs clearing little by little, I recently had an interesting occurrence (3rd week of MMS) which I had not heard of in any of the numerous testimonials I had watched or read and am wondering if you ever heard of it. I believe it is related to MMS detox. For about 3 days I had what felt like fluttering muscle spasms in the region of the lower middle area of the liver. It was not painful at all only something very odd. It was not surface spasming, but something internal. It was a fluttering feeling for a few seconds that hit about every hour or two.

I am also hoping that my new found ability to breathe through my nose at night is not a fluke. It is so exciting to think I can say goodbye to this decades-long nightly irritation - fingers crossed.


Hi Jordan,

I started my friend who has Lyme's disease on the protocol starting the middle of Dec 2017 . He did not realize he had this until it progressed.  He probably contracted it about Sept 2016.He made it through up to 2 drops of the starting protocol,  then around the middle of Dec had to cut back to 1 drop (diarrhea and great fatigue). He has had some relief of symptoms  and at about a 6 on a scale of 1-10 (being the best) to date. He has held to this improvement to date. To me it was like a miracle to witness this much change. But if he tries to do to much around the house, it wipes him out for the night and the next day. he is (was) a normally extremely strong person and in good health)Went back up to 2 drops around the second wk of Jan. He some trouble with that dose again. Stuck with it until around Feb but could not go beyond 2 drops. He has tried a few time in March to increase to 3 drops but it always give him diarrhea. I suggested that he take ONE 3 drop dose/day and the rest keep at 2 drops. He just started that yesterday.

Hi Folks;  I have ordered 4 kits now for friends and family and I heard from one of them today and she said that the DMSO wouldn't come out of the bottle and when she opened it up, it had all crystalized.  She did not want to keep taking it and I told her I would try to reach you to see if she could get a replacement.  By the way I haven't felt this great in years since taking the sacraments.  I'm 66 year old and have gotten off all my meds (antidepressants and blood pressure)  I also have boundless energy and no longer have fibromyalgia symptoms.  Thank you so much for your work and I will continue to spread the word.

Thank you, Kristi

Good morning, Jordan ...

Thank you so much for your speedy reply.

Between my first and second round, I resumed my previous habits which included a glass of red wine in the evenings. That went on for three days and then on the fourth day, I began feeling really lousy with body aches, anxiety, ringing in the ears and lack of energy. Up to that point, I had no alcohol and no sweets. I have a pretty healthy diet otherwise although I could say that there's always room for improvement. I normally drink about half a gallon of water on any given day, so flushing is not an issue and I'm drinking purified water as well. 

To answer Mark's question ... yes, I had kidney issues before however, the pain I had was on the left kidney and it was not a condition I had been dealing with for a prolonged period of time. It started about a month or so before I began taking MMS .The pain I'm experiencing now is on the right. Today, it's not as acute. The other unsettling experience is the rushing, nervous sensation that courses through my entire system. It's like I've got a motor running throughout my system and it never shuts off.  With all of that I will say that I feel pretty good. I sleep well, my digestion is better than it has been in years, my joints feel more lubricated and I have regular and consistent bowel movements. 

Anyway, I'm feeling motivated and encouraged to keep with what I am doing. I suspect I'm just experiencing a die-off reaction. Perhaps my yeast overgrowth is much more advanced than I thought when I went onto the MMS and so it is going to take some time to release it all. 

Thank you so much for your support. I deeply appreciate your speedy reply to my concerns.

I'm expecting my 1st shipment of MMS from Florida. It's arriving tomorrow.... so says the tracking on USPS. I'm a 50yr old disabled veteran with many ailments. I had a Spinal Injury but still can walk mainly from refusing to be in a wheelchair, 3 failed Spine surgeries, Type 2 Diabetic since 2007, Left & Right Knee injuries with Peroneal nerve loss in left leg from knee down which is painful when walking or standing, Tinnitus, Sinus problems and stomach issues. I've been on meds for PTSD that would make me feel like I was at a Grateful Dead concert. Also Keratoconus in both eyes among other issues. I was on Dilaudid, Morphine etc. with kickers of Hydrocodone etc. for decades. I quit the pain killers cold turkey about 2 yrs ago as they weren't working and were just clouding my mind. I've been on so many Veterans Administration meds, hundreds of them for over 30 yrs that I cant list them all so I'm sure my body is littered full of chemicals that are basically killing me slowly. I fight hard everyday just to keep moving. I've read the stories & seen the vids on people saying MMS is dangerous but those VA meds have to be even more dangerous in my opinion. So I will find out soon whether MMS is the real deal. If it works maybe it can help some of my other veteran brothers. I'm willing to be the Guinea pig lol.

I appreciate your reply, sir. I started with 1 drop doses and went up from there over the last 4 days. I just got up this AM and today will be the 5th day. I've reached 3 drops with no problems. I never got an upset stomach or anything. Pain levels have dropped off in certain parts of my body. I'm going to continue with the protocol 1000. I've noticed a few strange sense of smell is way better and I have a cracked tooth that was painful and it's not hurting now. My wife is helping me keep a daily log of any changes.

Well I haven't been able to stick 100% to the protocol but I feel better. It has definitely helped with pain. I notice if I don't take it for a few days and then take a dose I instantly feel better. I do have way more energy etc.

Thanks Gentleman for all that you do! I'm sorry but, I'm not seeing the link for the autism complaint... I know plenty that would send the documents I just need the info. Wishing I could make it to Columbia for your next lecture... unfortunately my health won't allow me at this time anyway possible I'll be there for the next. Starting my MMS documentation about my personal​ healing from near death to I won't allow to be murdered. God bless!

The fact is; if you won’t put it in your mouth you shouldn’t put it on your skin. Does it really absorb that much of what is applied to it?


G2Voice Broadcast #81: NOT in the mouth, so NOT on the skin!

What you put on your body is just as significant as what you put in your body. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it.

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health looked into the skin’s absorption rates of chemicals found in drinking water. It showed that the skin absorbed an average of 64% of total contaminant dosage. Other studies found the face to be several times more permeable than broad body surfaces and an absorption rate of 100% for underarms and genitalia. And another peer-reviewed study showed 100% absorption for fragrance ingredients.

It is easy to see that what we use on our skin ends up inside our bodies. So, it is important to pay close attention to the ingredients in our skin care products. If the products you use contain harmful ingredients such as harsh, toxic chemicals, colors, and fragrances, those ingredients make their way into your body, your blood and lymphatic system. The majority of mainstream body care products contain a cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants.

To eliminate a lot of toxic chemicals, preservatives, and fragrances that are harmful to our bodies, choose certified organic and natural skin care products. It is important to read labels and become educated about what ingredients to avoid when selecting body care products. A good motto to go by is if you can’t pronounce it or have only seen it in chemistry class, don’t use it! Petroleum derivatives, preservatives, synthetic fragrances and dyes go by many names. A few examples of common ingredients to steer clear of are Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, Olefin SulfonatGe, Sodium Luaroyl Sarcosinate, Potassium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sulfates, Parabens, and Phenoxyethanol. Following is an example of a mainstream product and the synthetic ingredients it contains:

Vaseline Intensive Care Dry Skin Lotion


By selecting organic and natural products for yourself and your family, you are taking a big step toward a healthier lifestyle. The developing organs of babies and children are particularly sensitive to chemicals, so it is especially important to use safe products for your youngsters. Down to Earth has a wide selection of natural and organic body care products. Look for even more in the near future as our team is working hard to ensure that DTE carries the purest products available.




Occupations at Risk for harmful exposures to the skin


Workers at risk of potentially harmful exposures of the skin include, but are not limited to, those working in the following industries and sectors:

  • Food service
  • Cosmetology
  • Health care
  • Agriculture
  • Cleaning
  • Painting
  • Mechanics
  • Printing/lithography
  • Construction

Dermal exposure to hazardous agents can result in a variety of occupational diseases and disorders, including occupational skin diseases (OSD) and systemic toxicity. Historically, efforts to control workplace exposures to hazardous agents have focused on inhalation rather than skin exposures. As a result, assessment strategies and methods are well developed for evaluating inhalation exposures in the workplace; standardized methods are currently lacking for measuring and assessing skin exposures.

OSD are the second most common type of occupational disease and can occur in several different forms including:

  • Irritant contact dermatitis,
  • Allergic contact dermatitis,
  • Skin cancers,
  • Skin infections,
  • Skin injuries, and
  • Other miscellaneous skin diseases.

Contact dermatitis is one of the most common types of occupational illness, with estimated annual costs exceeding $1 billion.


There are far too many toxics in consumer products to cover here, so we've decided to focus on the groups of harmful ingredients on our "Never List", which reads: "No Artificial Fragrances or Colors, MEA, DEA or TEA, Parabens, Phthalates, PEG compounds, Sulfates, Silicones, or any other petrochemicals". Here we go:

Artificial Colors
Function: Colorants. 
Found in: Tinted/colored products. 
Danger: Dyes are often derived from coal tar or other petroleum byproducts. 
How they’re listed: Usually as a color followed by a number (ie, “Red 4”).

Artificial Fragrance
Function: Scent.
Found in: Scented products and perfumes.

Danger: The terms "Fragrance" (USA) and "Parfum"(EU) give no information about the ingredients in the scent, which may include many synthetic and potentially allergenic compounds (by law in the US, companies are not required to disclose the ingredients in their "fragrance" as it's considered a trade secret). If a product is in fact all-natural, "fragrance" or "parfum" should be followed by an asterisk on the ingredient list, with a footnote clarifying what the "fragrance" actually consists of (i.e, "composed of 100% pure essential oils.")
How they’re listed:
“Fragrance” or “Parfum” (without an asterisk).

MEA (Monoethanolamine), DEA (Diethanolamine), or TEA (Triethanolamine) derivatives
Function: Surfactants (foaming agents), emulsifiers (prevents separation of ingredients).
Found in: Face and body washes, shampoos, hair colors, and more.
Danger: Possible carcinogens, may result in contamination with nitrosamines. 
How they’re listed: Anything with MEA, DEA, or TEA.

Function: Preservatives.
Found in: 75 to 90% of all cosmetic products on the market
Danger: Endocrine disruptors, possible carcinogens.
How they’re listed: Methyl/ethyl/butyl/isobutyl/propyl paraben.

PEG Compounds
Function: Humectants (attracts moisture), surfactants (foaming agents), emulsifiers (prevents separation of ingredients), penetration enhancers (increases product absorption into skin).
Found in: Lotions, soaps, shampoo, makeup, and more.
Danger: May be contaminated with carcinogens like 1,4-dioxane, can help carry these impurities through skin, may cause birth defects and infertility.
How they’re listed: Anything with “PEG” in the name.

Function: Plasticizers, fragrance solvents. 
Found in: Many perfumes and scented products.
Danger: Endocrine disrupters, respiratory toxicants, can cause birth defects and infertility in males, may lead to pregnancy loss in females, may alter childhood brain development.

How they’re listed: Commonly hidden under “fragrance” or “parfum”; Anything with “phthalate” in its name, or DBP, DEHP, DMP, DEP. 

Function: Emollients (seals in moisture), emulsifiers, texturizers. 
Found in: Lotions, soaps, shampoo, makeup, styling products and more.  
Danger: Though not associated with serious human health problems, silicones are environmental contaminants, non-biodegradable, and prohibited ingredients under the EcoCert certification. 

How they’re listed: Anything that ends in “cone,” “conol,” “col,” or “xane.”

Function: Surfactants (foaming agents), emulsifiers (prevents separation of ingredients).
Found in: Face wash, body wash, shampoos, soaps, toothpaste, and more.
Danger: Common irritants, penetration enhancers, may be contaminated with known carcinogens like 1,4 dioxane.
How they’re listed: Sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate, sodium dodecyl sulfate, sodium salt sulphuric acid, monododecyl ester.

We know it’s a lot to take in, and also a little scary! We don’t yet have perfect knowledge here, but we’re doing our best to find “the truth” – as much as that’s possible – and we’re committed to sharing our learning as we go.


Top 10 products/ingredients to avoid, scrutinize or reduce use:

  1. 1. Talc-based powder
  2. 2. Nail polish
  3. 3. Baby shampoo: Do your homework well when choosing baby shampoo (and all baby products)! A chemical called 1,4-dioxane is all too common in most brands. Product tests released by author and researcher David Steinman found 1,4- dioxane in more than 12 different best-selling brands of both shampoo and bubble bath. And 1,4-dioxane is cited as a probable carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and as an animal carcinogen by the National Toxicology Program. Unfortunately, this is a clear-cut example of the hidden dangers that lurk in your products that are not listed on the label. Because 1,4-dioxane is produced during manufacturing, the FDA does not require for it to be listed as an ingredient on the labels of products.
  4. 4. Bubble baths
  5. 5. Hair dyes
  6. 6. Petroleum-based products
  7. 7. Fragrances
  8. 8. Deodorant
  9. 9. Skin primers made with silicone or other cone products
  10. 10. Baby wipes


Here is another product I remember using as a kid and even my wife used on our children. It is from Johnson and Johnson, a family company as the advertisement says. Johnson and Johnson was sued over baby’s talc powder! These are products for babies. I would like there to be a strong oversight on the safety of children, wouldn’t you? Well, you see what is ‘approved’ to be injected into children so NO surprise that the prostitutes in the FDA allow this. I say prostitutes because they do it for money. They are all paid off! Again, read the vaccine/medical time line in this book.

Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $417m in lawsuit linking baby powder to cancer. This company wouldn’t pay that much money unless it was proven. The verdict marks the largest sum awarded in a series of talcum powder lawsuit verdicts against Johnson & Johnson in courts around the US - Aug 22, 2017 Associated Press, Los Angeles.



Putting It on Your Skin Does Let It in: What’s in Skin Care and How It Affects Your Health

By Deborah Burnes

You might have heard that sure, parabens and other chemicals in your skin care are bad if ingested, but they can’t penetrate your skin so you don’t have anything to worry about. The fact is, much of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. Just think about nicotine and birth control patches. We administer effective doses through the skin to our bloodstream, enabling us to forgo a daily oral pill in lieu of a patch that prevents pregnancy. Or a patch that keeps nicotine in our system without the side effects of smoking, allowing us to wean off of an addiction. While there may be some chemicals that are too large to enter our bloodstream, many are small enough to penetrate. In 2005, the Environmental Working Group published a combination of two studies that found toxic chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies born in the U.S. in the fall of 2004. They screened for more than 400 chemicals, and an astounding 287 toxins were detected within the umbilical cord blood of these newborns. Of these 287 chemicals, 217 were neurotoxins, and 208 are known to damage growth development or cause birth defects. These toxins included mercury, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polybrominated and polychlorinated dibenzodioxins and furans (PBCD/F and PBDD/F), perflorinated chemicals (PFCs), organochlorine pesticides like DDT and chlordane, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), polychlorinated napthalenes (PCNs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and many others. These study results have been largely ignored by the media.

Since we know without debate that some chemicals can and do enter your bloodstream through topical application,  you’re better off doing your best to avoid all known harmful chemicals on the chance they are entering your bloodstream.

The task of scrutinizing every ingredient in the bevy of daily products the average consumer uses can be daunting. Start with the products that are having the most negative impact. The next thing you want to think about is the level of exposure you’re getting from the products you’re using. Different products mean different levels of exposure and concern. For instance, if you use a lotion all over your body and it soaks into your skin all day, you’re getting a lot more exposure to those chemicals than if you were to use the same ingredients in a face cleanser that is quickly washed off. So be strategic — try to get the best ingredients in products that you have a lot of exposure to (shampoo, lotion, sunscreen, etc.), and if you want to, relax your standards a bit for products like hand soap.

When we try to be perfect, we get paralyzed. It can get so overwhelming to constantly worry about each ingredient in every product that we just want to forget the whole thing and buy a bar of soap already. The way to avoid this is by choosing when to demand a certain standard and when to relax. That way you don’t have to worry about every ingredient all the time and you can still drastically improve the overall quality of your beauty products.

Top products to look for cleanest ingredients:

  1. 1. Anything you soak in (ie bubble bath)
  2. 2. Anything you apply and do not wash off, such as lotion, face and body creams, and oils
  3. 3. Body powder
  4. 4. Shampoo and conditioner (which is a wash off, but has high exposure due to where you use it and the way it “washes” over your entire body)
  5. 5. Any product you put on your child

Products that have limited exposure (so you can relax your standards if you choose):

1. Eye shadow

2. Nail polish remover (unless you are changing colors daily)

3. Hand soap (excluding anti-bacterial)

4. Blush

5. Leave-in hair care products — while it may seem confusing to have leave-in hair care products in the limited exposure and shampoo and conditioner as high exposure, there is a difference in application and exposure (not chemical content). Leave-in products are applied out of the shower (so the product is not “washing” all over your body), and they are also not applied on the scalp (only on the hair itself where it is absorbed by your hair, not your skin). Additionally, when you rewash your hair a large percentage of the leave-in has been brushed or worn off, allowing for fewer chemicals to be “washed” over your body.

Top 10 products/ingredients to avoid, scrutinize or reduce use:

1. Talc-based powder

2. Nail polish

3. Baby shampoo: Do your homework well when choosing baby shampoo (and all baby products)! A chemical called 1,4-dioxane is all too common in most brands.

The Dirty Dozen: 12 Toxic Cosmetic Ingredients You Should Toss

TCM is on a mission to spread the word about clean beauty brands with safe products we can rely on. Have you ever wanted to detox your beauty routine, but didn’t know where to start? We get that – learning to read skincare and makeup labels is like learning a whole new language.

We love this Dirty Dozen list selected by MPWR Skincare that takes the popular organic foods idea and puts it to good use in our makeup bags and vanities. No need to make flashcards here. Just read, bookmark and take small steps toward a cleaner routine one shampoo, perfume and lipstick at a time…

Phthalates (Dibutyl Phthalate)

What is it? Phthalate (prounced thal-ate) is used mainly in nail products as a solvent for dyes and as a plasticizer that prevents nail polishes from becoming brittle. Phthalates are also unlisted fragrance ingredients in many other cosmetics. LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? It has been shown to cause developmental defects and is toxic to reproduction and can also harm the unborn and impair fertility. Phthalate exposure has been linked to early puberty in girls, and a risk factor for later-life breast cancer. Dibutyl phthalate is banned in cosmetics in the European Union.

Sulphates (Sodium Laurate, Lauryl Sulphate or SLS)

What is it? Primarily used as a foaming agent or detergent to be found in shampoos, facial cleansers, bubble bath products, household and utensil cleaning detergents.

Why is it harmful? Depending on the manufacturing process, Sodium laureth sulfate may be contaminated with ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane. Both contaminants may cause cancer. Also, ethylene oxide may harm the nervous system and interfere with human development, and 1,4-dioxane is persistent. In other words, it doesn’t easily degrade and can remain in the environment long after it is rinsed down the shower drain.

Parabens (methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, butyl-, isobutyl-)

What is it? Parabens are a group of compounds widely used as an antifungal agent, preservative and antimicrobial in creams, lotions, ointments and other cosmetics, including underarm deodorants. An estimated 75-90% of cosmetics contain this toxin. LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? Parabens are easily absorbed by our skin. Parabens can mimic estrogen and has been detected in human breast cancer tissues. It is estimated that women are exposed to 50mg of parabens per day. They are absorbed through the skin and have been identified in biopsy samples from breast tumors.


What is it? These are primarily preservatives commonly found in cosmetics. It is also found in baby bath soap, nail polish, eyelash adhesive and hair dyes.Look for: DMDM hydantoin, diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, methenamine, quaternium-15, and sodium hydroxymethylglycinate. These ingredients slowly and continuously release small amounts of formaldehyde. LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? Formaldehyde has a long list of adverse health effects, including immune-system toxicity, respiratory irritation and cancer in humans. Formaldehyde is a recognized human carcinogen.

BHA and BHT (butylated hydroxyanisole and butylated hydroxytoluene)

What is it? BHA and BHT are synthetic antioxidants used as preservatives in lipsticks and moisturizers and are also used as food preservatives. LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? They can cause allergic reactions, liver, thyroid and kidney problems along with lung function impairment and problems in blood coagulation. Moreover, they mimic estrogen and can have an adverse impact on reproduction. BHA is toxic to the immune system and the International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies it as a possible human carcinogen. Studies suggest that BHT may be toxic to the skin, lungs, liver, and immune system. Both chemicals can cause allergic reactions, are suspected of interfering with hormone function (endocrine disruption), and may promote tumor growth.

Coal-Tar Dyes

What is it? Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a group of chemicals that occur naturally in coal, crude oil and gasoline. One of the more common PAHs is naphthalene. Some cosmetics and shampoos are made with coal tar and therefore may contain PAHs.

Why is it harmful? Phenylenediamine, used in hair dyes, has been found to be carcinogenic in laboratory tests conducted by the U.S. National Cancer Institute and National Toxicology Program. Coal tar is recognized as a human carcinogen and the main concern are their potential as carcinogens. As well, colors may be contaminated with low levels of heavy metals and some contain aluminum (a neurotoxin). This is of particular concern when used in cosmetics that may be ingested, like lipstick.

DEA Compounds (diethanolamine)

What is it? DEA and DEA compounds are used to make cosmetics creamy or sudsy.

Why is it harmful? These cause mild skin and eye irritation. Exposure to high doses of these chemicals has caused liver cancers and pre-cancerous changes in skin and thyroid. DEA is also possible hormone disruptor, has shown limited evidence of carcinogenicity and depletes the body of choline needed for fetal brain development..


What is it? Apart from being used in perfumes and deodorants, they are used in nearly every type of personal-care product. Of the thousands of chemicals used in fragrances, most have not been tested for toxicity, alone or in combination. Over 3000 chemicals are used to manufacture synthetic fragrances.

Why is it harmful? These are often unlisted ingredients that are irritants and can trigger allergies, migraines, and asthma symptoms. The catchall term “fragrance” may mask phthalates, which act as endocrine disruptors and may cause obesity and reproductive and developmental harm. In laboratory experiments, individual fragrance ingredients have been associated with cancer and neurotoxicity. For example, one chemical of concern is dimethyl phthalate, or DEP. Widely used in cosmetics to make fragrances linger, DEP is suspected of interfering with hormone function (endocrine disruption), causing reproductive and developmental problems. Health Canada recently announced regulations banning six phthalates in children’s toys, but DEP is still widely used in cosmetics.

pEG compounds (polyethylene glycols)

What is it? PEGs are widely used in cosmetics as thickeners, solvents, softeners, and moisture-carriers and hence used for products requiring a cream base and also in laxatives. LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? PEG (and its chemical cousin, propylene glycol) opens the skin’s pores, allowing harmful ingredients to penetrate more deeply. PEG and other “ethoxylated” ingredients (which usually have chemical names including the letters “eth”) may be contaminated with ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane. Both contaminants may cause cancer. Also, ethylene oxide may harm the nervous system and interfere with human development, and 1,4-dioxane is persistent. In other words, it doesn’t easily degrade and can remain in the environment long after it is rinsed down the shower drain.


What is it? Petrolatum (mineral oil jelly) is used as a barrier to lock moisture in the skin in a variety of moisturizers. It is also used in hair care products to make your hair shine. Look out for the terms “petroleum” or “liquid paraffin.” LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? A petrochemical, it can be contaminated with cancer-causing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The European Union considers petrolatum a carcinogen and restricts its use in cosmetics. 1,4-dioxane is not listed on ingredient labels. It is a petroleum-derived contaminant formed in the manufacture of shampoos, body wash, children’s bath products and other sudsing cosmetics. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has ranked it as a possible carcinogen, and the National Toxicology Program (NTP) has identified it as a reasonably anticipated carcinogen.


What is it? Cyclomethicone and ingredients ending in “siloxane” make hair products dry quickly and deodorant creams slide on easily. They are also used extensively in moisturizers and facial treatments to soften and smoothen and in medical implants. LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? Cyclotetrasiloxane and Cylcopentasiloxane —D4 and D5 — are endocrine disruptors, interfere with human hormone function and possible reproductive toxicants that may impair human fertility, cause uterine tumors and harm the reproductive and immune systems.


What is it? Triclosan is used mainly in antiperspirants/deodorants, cleansers, and hand sanitizers as a preservative and an anti-bacterial agent. Also used in laundry detergent, facial tissues, and antiseptics for wounds. Triclosan is classified as a pesticide. LEARN MORE HERE

Why is it harmful? It can pass through skin and can affect the body’s hormone systems—especially thyroid hormones, which regulate metabolism—and may disrupt normal breast development. Widespread use of triclosan may also contribute to bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents. The Canadian Medical Association has called for a ban on antibacterial consumer products, such as those containing triclosan.

Top 10 Reasons to Avoid Sodium Lauryl Sulfate


There are a lot of rumors out there about Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate. Is it really a carcinogen? What about an endocrine disruptor and skin irritant? What’s truth and what’s myth? We’ve put together this article to clear up the confusion about the debated chemical. There’s no need to spread lies…the truth is scary enough. To make it easy we’re going to refer to Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and its even more evil twin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate from this point forward as SLS.

If you have the suspicion that washing your face is making your skin dry, or that shampooing is giving you an itchy scalp or making your eyes sting, or that cleaning your teeth is giving you mouth ulcers, sodium lauryl sulfate is the likely culprit. In studies, there are “significant correlations” (in the words of one) between SLS and contact dermatitis. The Journal of the American College of Toxicology says that it has “a degenerative effect on the cell membranes because of its protein denaturing properties”. The Journal adds that “high levels of skin penetration may occur at even low use concentration.

Here are our top ten reasons you should not use anything containing SLS.

1. It is a known skin irritant. When cosmetic companies need to test the healing properties of a lotion, they need toirritate the skin first. What do they use to do this? SLS, of course. If you have dandruff, dermatitis, canker sores, or other irritated tissues or skin, it could be due to SLS.

2. It pollutes our groundwater. It is toxic to fish and other aquatic animals and has the potential for bioaccumulation (meaning it accumulates in the bodies of the fish.)  It also is undetected in many municipal water filters, getting into the tap water that you drink.

3. It is actually a pesticide and herbicide.  It is commonly used to kill plants and insects. Makers of SLS recently petitioned to have SLS listed as an approved pesticide for organic farming.  The application was denied because of its polluting properties and environmental damage.

4. It emits toxic fumes when heated. Toxic Sodium Oxides and Sulfur Oxides are released when SLS is heated.  Makes a hot shower with an SLS shampoo seem not quite as nice…

5.  It has corrosive properties.  According to the American College of Toxicitythis includes corrosion of the fats and protiens that make up skin and muscle.  SLS can be found in garage floor cleanrs, engine degreasers, and car wsh soaps

6.  Long-term permeation of the body’s tissues.  A study from the University of Georgia Medicine showed that SLS had the power to permeate the eyes, brain, heart, and liver.

7.  It’s an eye irritant.  It was shown to cause cataracts in adults, and is proven to inhibit the proper formation of eyes in small children.

8.  Nitrate and other solvent contamination.  Toxic solvents, including carcinogenic nitrates are used in the manufacturing of SLS, traces of which can remain in the product.

9.  Manufacturing process is highly polluting, emitting cancer-causing volatile organic compounds, sulfur compounds, and air particulates.

10.  It helps other chemicals get into your body.  SLS is a penetration enhancer, meaning that its molecules are so small they’re able to cross the membranes of your body’s cells.  Once cells are compromised, they become more vulnerable to other toxic chemicals that may be with the SLS.

The word “fragrance” can hide more than 3,000 toxins under the idea “trade secrets”.

Fragrance Free is what you are looking for. This means that no fragrances (artificial or otherwise) have been added to the product (or should mean that, watch for tougher regulations monitoring that coming).  As we know, artificial fragrances are the #1 irritant on skin and one of the most potentially harmful ingredients we can encounter - because they contain phthalates -- see more information below. They are linked to many health issues, from allergies and asthma to cancer.  In its truest definition, "fragrance free," means you should not have to worry about those nasty synthetics. Nothing should be added to remove the natural scents from the butters, oils, and other natural ingredients in the products.  In other words, you may smell some of the product’s ingredients such as the olive oil or shea butter.

Unscented does not mean fragrance free.  In fact, if you smell absolutely nothing in your skin care or beauty products, it may be more harmful than you believed. Why? It sounds silly, but "unscented" products typically have added fragrance agents used to mask the other smells. These masking fragrances are usually composed of toxic phthalates.

Phthalates are an industrial plasticizing agent.  This is found in artificial fragrance, and frequently used in "unscented" and some poorly labeled "fragrance free" products. Here is what is on the Cosmetics Database page about phthalates: “More than two decades ago, scientists began building a body of work indicating that phthalates are reproductive and developmental toxicants in laboratory animals, particularly in males. Early studies focused on phthalates’ ability to cause testicular atrophy (e.g., Gray and Buttersworth 1980). New studies are confirming these findings in humans (Swan et al. 2005, Main et al. 2005).”

Phthalates have been linked from everything to testicular cancer to liver cancer, but they are still in almost all synthetic fragrances, including masking agents which cause a product’s other natural scents to disappear.

Allergies and asthma still remain the biggest side effect of artificial fragrance and studies reveal that women are even more susceptible to these side effects. The problem becomes compounded when one exhibits the side effects such as redness and irritation and attempt to treat these with more lotions and creams.  Since so many of these products have fragrance in them, they are rubbing on more of what is actually causing the problem in the first place.

What are phthalates?

Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl.  Polyvinyl chloride is made softer and more flexible by the addition of phthalates. Phthalates are used in hundreds of consumer products. 

Phthalates are used in cosmetics and personal care products, including perfume, hair spray, soap, shampoo, nail polish, and skin moisturizers. They are used in consumer products such as flexible plastic and vinyl toys, shower curtains, wallpaper, vinyl miniblinds, food packaging, and plastic wrap.

Phthalates are also used in wood finishes, detergents, adhesives, plastic plumbing pipes, lubricants, medical tubing and fluid bags, solvents, insecticides, medical devices, building materials, and vinyl flooring. 

Phthalates had been used to make pacifiers, soft rattles, and teethers, but at the request of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, U.S. manufacturers have not used phthalates in those products since 1999.

How might I be exposed to phthalates?

You can be exposed to low levels of phthalates through air, water, or food. You can be exposed to phthalates if you use cosmetics, personal care products, cleaning products, or other plastic and vinyl products that contain them. 

Exposure to low levels of phthalates may come from eating food packaged in plastic that contains phthalates or breathing dust in rooms with vinyl miniblinds, wallpaper, or recently installed flooring that contain phthalates. You could be exposed by drinking water that contains phthalates, though it is not known how common that is. Phthalates are suspected to be endocrine disruptors.

Children can be exposed to phthalates by chewing on soft vinyl toys or other products made with them. Children can be exposed by breathing household dust that contains phthalates or using IV tubing or other medical devices made with phthalates. 

People at the highest risk of exposure to phthalates are dialysis patients, hemophiliacs, or people who received blood transfusions from sources that use tubing or containers made with phthalates. The Food and Drug Administration has recommended steps to minimize exposure of patients to medical devices that contain phthalates and recommended use of alternative devices for certain procedures. Others at high risk are painters, printers, and workers exposed to phthalates during the manufacture, formulation, and processing of plastics.

How can phthalates affect my health?

The human health effects of phthalates are not yet fully known but are being studied by several government agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, and the National Toxicology Program's Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction. 

Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate is listed as "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen" in the Fourteenth Report on Carcinogens published by the National Toxicology Program because there is limited evidence of a relationship between exposure to the chemical and cancer in humans.

Current levels of seven phthalates studied by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences posed "minimal" concern for causing reproductive effects. However, the National Toxicology Program concluded that high levels of one phthalate, di-n-butyl phthalate, may adversely affect human reproduction or development.

High levels of exposure to di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate through the use of medical tubing and other plastic devices for feeding, medicating, and assisting the breathing of newborn infants may affect the development of the male reproductive system, according to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

The dangers of synthetic scents aren’t always evident, but we have the science to prove that everyone, regardless of age or health, needs to make avoiding fake fragrances a major priority.

A National Academy of Sciences points out some vital facts: About 95 percent of chemicals used in synthetic fragrances are derived from petroleum (crude oil). They include benzene derivatives (carcinogenic), aldehydes, toluene and many other known toxic chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, central nervous system disorders and allergic reactions.  Unfortunately, 30 years later, toxic ingredients continue turn up in products we use and breathe in on a daily basis. Some of the worst toxic ingredients used in lotions, shampoos, laundry detergents, cleaning products and so much more include synthetic scents, often listed as on labels as the elusive “fragrance.” And many on the list are known or suspected endocrine disruptors, compounds that tinker with hormonal health that can trigger weight gain and even set you up for diseases decades down the line.

Avoiding the dangers of synthetic scents is crucial. It’s something I need you to share with your family and friends. When a company puts “fragrance” on the label, don’t be tricked. This is a catch-all term actually can stand for thousands of different ingredients (literally, at least 3,000). And when you use a product containing “fragrance” or “parfum,” all of those mysterious ingredients are absorbed right into your bloodstream. These ingredients are predominantly made from chemicals and are just outright toxic for your health in so many ways.

While our allure with natural fragrances is baked into our DNA as a way to find food and mates, synthetic fragrances are completely unnecessary and are making us super sick in our modern-day world. Sure, drawing fragrances from nature has a long history in religious ceremonies, burials and a way to increase libido. But in this article, we’re focusing on the man-made fragrances that started emerging in the late 1800s. The dangers of these synthetic scents not only include short-term symptoms like allergies and respiratory distress, but also headaches, dizziness, nausea and brain fog. We’ll get into other, less obvious side (but super serious) side effects in a bit.  This serves as evidence that regardless of your age or health status, it is imperative that you avoid fragrance chemicals.


What Are Synthetic Scents?

Synthetic scents or “fragrance” represent an unidentified mixture of ingredients including carcinogens, allergens, respiratory irritants, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic chemicals and environmental toxicants. These artificial scents can can be found in all kinds of body care and cosmetic products, as well as air fresheners, cleaning materials and laundry detergents. According to the Campaign for Safer Cosmetics, hair products are especially problematic. More than 95 percent of shampoos, conditioners and styling products contain fragrance as an ingredient.  I’m sure you’ll agree that we all want our hair to smell good, but we could do without the use of toxic ingredients.

Research conducted by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found an average of 14 chemicals in 17 name brand fragrance products. But it doesn’t stop there — none of these chemicals were actually listed on the label.

In general, there at least 3,000 ingredients that could possibly be used to form a product’s scent. That’s according to the online “Transparency List” put out by the International Fragrance Association, an industry trade group.  I encourage to take a look at the following list, derived from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, to see just how many fragrance chemicals we’re possibly exposed to every day.

It may seem unbelievable, but the FDA does not even currently require fragrance and cosmetic makers to disclose exactly what they are using to scent products. If companies are using truly natural ingredients, then why be shy? Many will say that their formulas are proprietary and they don’t want other companies copying them. The FDA website also states how the agency cannot legally require companies to warn about allergens in cosmetic like they do with food.

Are you wondering why companies would continue to use synthetic scents if they’re so bad for our health? The answer is straightforward — they are cheaper. Synthetic scents can be an extremely cheap way to give everything from shampoo to lotion to candles a desirable scent. Unfortunately, just because you enjoy a scent, doesn’t mean it’s good for you.


Fake Fragrances: Making People’s Lives Miserable

In an August 2016 study published by veteran fragrance chemical researcher Anne Steinemann, PhD, we see the scope of how scented products impact our daily lives. But here’s a positive stat from the study: She found that more than 50 percent of the population would prefer fragrance-free workplaces, health care facilities and professionals, hotels and airplanes.

  • Overall reported health problems after exposure to fake fragrance:Overall, 34 percent of the population reported one or more types of adverse health effects from exposure to fragranced products. The most common symptoms were: 18 percent respiratory problems; 16 percent mucosal symptoms; 15 percent migraine headaches; 10 percent skin problems; 8 percent asthma attacks; 7 percent neurological problems; 5 percent cognitive problems; 5 percent gastrointestinal problems; 4 percent cardiovascular problems; 4 percent immune system problems; 3 percent musculoskeletal problems; and 1 percent “other.”
  • Scented laundry products vented outdoors: 12 percent reported health problems from the scent of laundry products coming from a dryer vent. Symptoms include headaches, breathing difficulties and other health problems.
  • Proximity to fragranced person: 23 percent reported health problems from being near someone who is wearing a fragranced product.
  • Trouble in public places: 17 percent of people say they are unable or reluctant to use public toilets because of air freshener, deodorizer or scented product; 14 percent are unable or reluctant to their wash hands with soap in a public place because they suspect the soap is fragranced. Further, 22.7 percent have been prevented from going to some public place because of scented products.
  • Economic losses: Fragranced product exposures have economic implications, too. Of those surveyed, 20 percent would enter but then leave a business as quickly as possible if they smell fragranced products, and 15 have lost workdays or a job due to fragranced product exposures in the workplace.

Clearly, the United States is ready for fragrance-free policies. Share these facts with your employers, favorite businesses and local government to encourage fragrance-free policies.


Serious Dangers of Synthetic Scents



According to the Breast Cancer Fund, when it comes to the prevention of cancer, avoiding synthetic fragrance is one of the main ways to help yourself. That’s because the dangers of synthetic scents include hormone-disrupting phthalates and synthetic musks.

The National Academy of Sciences endorsed the 2011 finding by the National Toxicology Program, a collaboration of scientists from several government agencies, that styrene is “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen” based on “compelling evidence.” The organization also said that some studies would support “a strong argument [for] listing styrene as a known human carcinogen.

Styrene is found in cigarette smoke and car exhaust. Doesn’t sound like it would smell too good, but shockingly, it’s actually being used in cosmetic sprays and liquids as well as cleaning products. According to the EWG, if a company doesn’t fully disclose that it contains styrene (which it most likely will not) then the only way you’ll know it’s present is if you use a gas chromatograph or mass spectrometer.

Sadly, styrene is just one of many ingredients linked to cancer being used to create artificial fragrance. Phthalates are another group of  chemicals often disguised as “fragrance.” They are connected to cancer, endocrine disruption as well as developmental and reproductive toxicity. These dangerous synthetics are already banned from cosmetics in the European Union, but are still quite common in products produced and sold in the United States. Phthalates often hide under the “fragrance” ingredient, but they can also appear on ingredient lists as phthalate, DEP, DBP, and DEHP. Be sure to avoid all of those.

Child Autism & Other Birth Defects

Most products that list “fragrance” contain a very unwanted ingredient when it comes to good health. I’m talking about phthalates, again. Research conducted by Dr. Philip J. Landrigan of the Mount Sinai Children’s Environmental Health Center demonstrates that fetal exposure to phthalates is linked to autism, symptoms of ADHD and neurological disorders. This why pregnant women have to be ultra careful when it comes to the products they’re exposed to on a daily basis. The dangers of synthetic scents could be even more life-altering for a developing fetus.

A 2010 New York Times article quoted Dr. Landrigan on the subject. He said that he is “increasingly confident that autism and other ailments are, in part, the result of the impact of environmental chemicals on the brain as it is being formed.” He adds, “the crux of this is brain development. If babies are exposed in the womb or shortly after birth to chemicals that interfere with brain development, the consequences last a lifetime.”

A very interesting 2010 peer-reviewed study published in Environmental Health Perspectives found that women with higher levels of certain phthalates gave birth to children that, years later, were more likely to display disruptive behavior.  It’s alarmingly true that fragrance materials are able to accumulate in human fat tissue. They are also present in breast milk.

Allergic & Toxic Bodily Reactions

Fragrances are one of the top five allergens in the world.  Allergic reactions include headaches and migraines, difficulty breathing and sinus irritation, just to name a few. Fragrance mixtures also commonly trigger contact dermatitis, a type of allergic skin reaction. In recent years, health reports show that allergies, sinus problems, migraines and asthma have all increased dramatically. Many experts believe there’s a likely link between the rise in these conditions and the increased use of products containing fragrance.

Using animal models, a 1998 study published in Archives of Environmental Health looked at how fragrance products produce toxic effects in mammals. They found that the emissions of fragrance products caused various combinations of: eyes, nose and throat irritations; pulmonary irritation; decreases in airflow velocity when exhaling; and signs of neurotoxicity. This neurotoxicity was even worse when the animal subjects suffered repeated exposure to the scented products.

Asthma & Other Breathing Difficulties

If you have asthma, you really don’t need anything to get in the way of breathing easily.  It’s extremely common for asthmatics to suffer health symptoms when exposed to perfumes, colognes and other scented products, especially when they contain artificial scents.

One study looked at patients with a history of worsening asthma symptoms after being exposed to cologne. They found that the patients’ exhalation volume decline by 18 to 58 percent during cologne exposure.

There’s no doubt in my mind that synthetic scents are enemies of optimal breathing, especially if you have breathing issues to begin with, like asthmatics. If you have asthma or any other breathing trouble, then truly fragrance-free products are your best bet.

Better Alternatives to Dangerous Synthetic Scents

The good news is that if you are a careful reader, you can help yourself and your family to avoid the dangers of synthetic scents in all of the products you buy and use.

There are also many better options and ways to avoid the dangers of synthetic scents including:

  • Just live with fewer fragrances in your life. One easy solution to freshen your air? Put a bowl of white vinegar your countertop or windowsill to aid in natural odor control. Be sure to focus on cleaning up the source of odor, though, too — not just covering up the foul smell.
  • Completely avoiding any product that lists fragrance, parfum, phthalate, DEP, DBP, or DEHP as an ingredient.
  • Look for products that use essential oilswhen you are looking for a scent.
  • Buying certified organic products, which are less likely to include artificial scents (but still read labels). Watch out for “limonene” or “linalool” on labels, too. When they are listed in this form on the label, they are likely synthetic, man-made versions, not the natural compounds part of a more complex organic essential oil.
  • To provide a fresh, natural scent to your home or office, use fresh cut herbs and flowers and potted plants. Studies have even shown that the best houseplants that remove pollutionhelp strip indoor air of some toxic compounds.
  • Make homemade cleaning products since they are another huge source of synthetic scents.
  • Buy laundry detergent that is scented with pure essential oils or that is fragrance-free. You can also make your own homemade laundry soap.
  • If you are super sensitive or just don’t want to deal with smelling anything at all then choose fragrance-free or unscented products. Just make sure to still read labels carefully because sometimes companies will use other questionable ingredients to create that lack of a scent.
  • If you want to burn an occasional candle, use beeswax with a lead-free wick. But understand that any type of combustion will cause some level of particulate pollution in the home. (But at least you won’t get the toxic fragrance or petroleum chemicals.)
  • Question companies that don’t fully explain how their products are scented. Maybe you’ll get some additional information or at best, get them to think again before not fully informing their customers.
  • Share the stats in this article with your employer and favorite businesses. Let them know about the economic harms of allowing fragrances in public and work spaces.

High quality, 100 percent pure essential oils are not cheap like synthetic scents, but for good reason. Essential oils are extremely concentrated. It takes a 1,000 pounds of handpicked flowers from an orange tree to produce the neroli essential oil, which has an incredible floral and citrusy intoxicating scent. Neroli is just one of many awesome options when it comes to essential oils.

Also, make sure to avoid synthetic scents with pet products, since the dangers of synthetic scents can be similar for animals.

Final Thoughts on the Dangers of Synthetic Scents

I really want to emphasize how important it is that you and your loved ones avoid the dangers of synthetic scents as much as possible. I also want to remind you again about what’s so much better than those fake smells — essentials oils. With so many scents to choose from and combine, the options for lovely natural scents are practically endless. They even make plug-ins now that use essential oils.

Interestingly, people who are heavy users of fake fragrances seem to build up a tolerance to them. But as you give up the dangers of synthetic scents, you’ll likely become less tolerant of them. So many people tell me that after they detox from chemical fragrances, they often feel sick when they walk down the detergent aisle or body spray sections of stores.

One of the best ways to protect your overall health is to choose products that are truly free of fragrance or ones that fully disclose a natural fragrance ingredients. Pregnant and breastfeeding moms should be especially careful for the sake of themselves as well as their developing children.

You really have to read labels to know what you’re getting these days when it comes to everything, especially any scented product. If you have asthma or breathing problems and are currently using synthetic scents, you are very likely to notice a big difference when you remove these fake fragrances from your life. Some of the other health effects might be less obvious, but the science is there to demonstrate how the more you cut out the dangers of synthetic scents from your life, the more you can hopefully decrease your chances of some serious and chronic health problems.

So toss those synthetic scents in the trash immediately and go smell a flower and remember how the best scents are truly all around us in nature, and bottled in essential oils too.

Here is a Chart of the Food Colors

Disclaimer: First of all, I'd like to say, Don't believe a word I say. This reference is not validated by any anyone, and what's worse it's on the Internet of all places! Can you really believe anything here? Probably not. With that said here is my list of 100% true data regarding food dyes!

Well, there really isn't anything all that shocking about food dye, but everyone likes to think there is. Yes there have been a few problems. Red 2 and Red 3 Lake are known to cause cancer, but were widely used for years. Yellow 5 causes hives in certain people (but does not make you sterile). Many dyes have been banned by the FDA, the same company who approved them in the first place. Aside from that, everything is regulated quite well in my opinion.

First allow me to go over a few terms about food dyes so we're all on the same page.

Dye -
An additive into a food/drug/cosmetic/etc. that will alter the color of the item. Used often for safety reason, but more commonly to enhance the visual appeal of the item.
The Food and Drug Administration. This is the company who controls which dyes are approved, or banned. They also are part of the government. Don't you just trust them more and more.
Lake -
While most dyes are water soluble, lake dyes are water-insoluble. That means that lake dyes will not bleed or run together because they do not dissolve in water very well.
Approved -
A dye that is approved means the FDA declares it safe for use. There are several different areas that a dye can get approved in. They include foods, drugs, cosmetics, cosmetics around the eye, medical equipment, contact lenses, etc. The number after Approved, is the year it was approved. If there is a question mark (?), I couldn't find when.

Banned - If the dye isn't approved it is often banned, in one or more the the same areas it can be approved in.

With that out of the way, here is the big old color dye table.

Phew, what a lot to type in! If you are wondering where I got all this information from, I got it from the FDA themselves. You can even check my data by visiting them at: Enjoy.


Perfume Can Be Poisonous




What Is It?

In cosmetics and personal care products, Yellow 10 (D&C Yellow No. 10) is used in the formulation of a wide variety of products. Yellow 10 Lake is used in blushers, hair bleaches, hair dyes and colors, lipsticks and makeup.

Why is it used in cosmetics and personal care products?

Yellow 10 and Yellow 10 Lake impart color to cosmetics and personal care products.

Scientific Facts: 

Yellow 10 and Yellow 10 Lake are synthetic pigments.

Safety Information: 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reviewed the safety of Yellow 10 and Yellow 10 Lake determined that these ingredients may be safely used for coloring cosmetics and personal care products including products intended to be used on the lips. These ingredients not permitted for use in products intended for use in the area of the eye. Yellow 10 is also permitted to be used as a color in drugs. According to U.S. regulations, all Yellow 10 and Yellow 10 Lake that are manufactured for use in products is subject to certification by the FDA. This certification process ensures that the strict chemical and identity specifications set by FDA are met. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) has deferred evaluation of these ingredients because the safety has been assessed by FDA. This deferral of review is according to the provisions of the CIR Procedures.

More safety Information: 

All color additives used in foods, drugs and cosmetics in the United States must be approved by FDA and listed in the Code of Federal Regulations. In some cases, FDA requires that each batch of color produced for use in regulated products can be used only if certified by the agency to meet strict specifications. FDA maintains a laboratory especially for this purpose and color manufacturers must pay a fee to support this activity. FDA only approves colors after extensive review of all safety data and publication of the basis for its approval in the Federal Register.

The IFRA Standards form the basis for the globally accepted and recognized risk management system for the safe use of fragrance ingredients and are part of the IFRA Code of Practice. This is the self-regulating system of the industry, based on risk assessments carried out by an independent Expert Panel.
The Expert Panel is made up of renowned independent experts from the fields such as dermatology, toxicology, pathology and environmental sciences. Their role is to evaluate the data on a fragrance ingredient to see if it supports the current use level, to make sure that there is no risk for the consumer. In cases where the safety assessment does not support the current use, the Panel instructs IFRA to issue a Standard either restricting or banning a material.
The Standards amount to 186 substances which have been either banned or restricted in their use in fragrance products. All members of IFRA are required, as a condition of membership, to observe the IFRA Code of Practice. The fragrance industry spends approximately $8 million (annually) in joint research on the safety of fragrances, and much more at the individual company level.
IFRA provides information on the exposure situation (usage concentration, variety of use, volume of use), chemical composition as well as the olfactory profile and olfactory potential (importance) of a fragrance ingredient to the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM). RIFM is the fragrance industry’s scientific centre, preparing comprehensive dossiers on the materials including all available safety data. If necessary, RIFM initiates and organizes any missing safety studies on the fragrance ingredient.
The Standards are established according to the following process:
1. IFRA provides information on the exposure situation (usage concentration, variety of use, volume of use), chemical composition as well as the olfactory profile and olfactory potential (importance) of a fragrance ingredient to RIFM;
2. RIFM prepares a comprehensive dossier on the material including all available safety data and, if necessary, initiates and organizes any missing safety studies on the fragrance ingredient;
3. The RIFM Panel of independent experts, evaluates the data to see if it supports the current use level, to make sure that there is no risk/danger for the consumer; if the safety assessment does not support the current use, the Panel instructs IFRA to issue a Standard*;
4. IFRA prepares a Standard in accordance with the Panel's instructions and conclusions;
5. The draft Standard is consulted with the IFRA membership and stakeholders for a period of about a month, to ensure that IFRA/RIFM are aware of all data on the material and to provide holders of additional data that might alter the outcome of the Panel's risk assessment with the opportunity to share those with IFRA/RIFM;
6. If no additional information is received via the Consultation phase, the final Standard is published in a notification procedure as part of an “Amendment to the IFRA Code of Practice”.

* The final decision on the content of the Standard is solely in the hands of the Expert Panel, not IFRA or RIFM.

Top 10 Reasons to Avoid Sodium Lauryl Sulfate


There are a lot of rumors out there about Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate. Is it really a carcinogen? What about an endocrine disruptor and skin irritant? What’s truth and what’s myth? We’ve put together this article to clear up the confusion about the debated chemical. There’s no need to spread lies…the truth is scary enough. To make it easy we’re going to refer to Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and its even more evil twin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate from this point forward as SLS.

If you have the suspicion that washing your face is making your skin dry, or that shampooing is giving you an itchy scalp or making your eyes sting, or that cleaning your teeth is giving you mouth ulcers, sodium lauryl sulfate is the likely culprit. In studies, there are “significant correlations” (in the words of one) between SLS and contact dermatitis. The Journal of the American College of Toxicology says that it has “a degenerative effect on the cell membranes because of its protein denaturing properties”. The Journal adds that “high levels of skin penetration may occur at even low use concentration.

Here are our top ten reasons you should not use anything containing SLS.

  1. 1. It is a known skin irritant. When cosmetic companies need to test the healing properties of a lotion, they need toirritate the skin first. What do they use to do this? SLS, of course. If you have dandruff, dermatitis, canker sores, or other irritated tissues or skin, it could be due to SLS.
  2. 2. It pollutes our groundwater. It is toxic to fish and other aquatic animals and has the potential for bioaccumulation (meaning it accumulates in the bodies of the fish.)  It also is undetected in many municipal water filters, getting into the tap water that you drink.
  3. 3. It is actually a pesticide and herbicide.  It is commonly used to kill plants and insects. Makers of SLS recently petitioned to have SLS listed as an approved pesticide for organic farming.  The application was denied because of its polluting properties and environmental damage.
  4. 4. It emits toxic fumes when heated. Toxic Sodium Oxides and Sulfur Oxides are released when SLS is heated.  Makes a hot shower with an SLS shampoo seem not quite as nice…
  5. 5.  It has corrosive properties.  According to the American College of Toxicitythis includes corrosion of the fats and protiens that make up skin and muscle.  SLS can be found in garage floor cleanrs, engine degreasers, and car wash soaps.

    6.  Long-term permeation of the body’s tissues.
     A study from the University of Georgia Medicine showed that SLS had the power to permeate the eyes, brain, heart, and liver.
  6. 7.  It’s an eye irritant.  It was shown to cause cataracts in adults, and is proven to inhibit the proper formation of eyes in small children.
  7. 8.  Nitrate and other solvent contamination.  Toxic solvents, including carcinogenic nitrates are used in the manufacturing of SLS, traces of which can remain in the product.
  8. 9.  Manufacturing process is highly polluting, emitting cancer-causing volatile organic compounds, sulfur compounds, and air particulates.

    10.  It helps other chemicals get into your body.  
    SLS is a penetration enhancer, meaning that its molecules are so small they’re able to cross the membranes of your body’s cells.  Once cells are compromised, they become more vulnerable to other toxic chemicals that may be with the SLS.

Does it cause cancer?
SLS is not a recognized carcinogen itself, but there is some truth behind those internet rumors.  When SLS is mixed with triethanolamine (or T.E.A) carcinogenic substances called nitrosames can form and be released.

Products commonly found to contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or SLES
Tooth paste
Washing-up liquid / dish soap
Laundry detergent
Childrens soaps / shampoos
Stain Remover
Carpet Cleaner
Fabric glue
Body wash
Shave cream
Skin cleanser
Moisture lotion / Moisturiser
Sun Cream

Unfortunately, there are over 150 different names by which it is known. Many products that are SLS-free will say it on the packaging, however it is wise to always study the ingredients. For cosmetics check to see the toxicity of your product with EWG’s Skin Deep Data Base.

Is fragrance bad for skin?

The way most fragrance ingredients impart scent is through a volatile reaction, which almost always causes irritation and some amount of inflammation. Research has established that fragrances in skin-care products are among the most common cause of sensitizing and allergic reactions.Nov 23, 2010

23 Reasons Why Castile Soap Is The Most Useful Soap You Can Buy


Castile soap used to be tricky to find, but today you can find it in nearly every health food store, and even in some regular grocery stores too! This naturally-derived soap is growing in popularity, and it’s no wonder why! There are just so many different ways to use it, from head-to-toe body care to every day household cleaning, laundry, and pet care. Plus, a little of this soap goes a long way, making it a good buy for the money.

Many of you are probably already familiar with what castile soap is. But just in case you aren’t, or could use a refresher, here’s a brief rundown. Castile soap is soap made from vegetable oil, rather than from animal fat or synthetic detergents. It originates from the Castile region of Spain (hence the name,) where it was made from pure, local olive oil. Although olive oil is the traditional base oil, the soap can be made with coconut, hemp, avocado, almond, walnut, and many other vegetable oils.

Modern castile soap is concentrated, completely biodegradable, and cleans gently, yet effectively. It can be used in a dizzying number of different ways, and today I’ll be sharing a few of my favorites!


23 Brilliant Uses for Castile Soap


Nourishing Body Wash

If you don’t want to use castile soap on its own to get clean, you can still use it to make a great body wash! Just mix it with a bit of honey, and some oils to make a gentle body wash that will moisturize and nourish your skin. Get the full recipe below!

All-Purpose Cleaning Spray

Add 1/4 cup of castile soap to 1 quart of warm water, and stir to incorporate. Add essential oils for added cleaning power, if desired, like lemon or melaleuca oils. (Or you could use Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Castile Soap, which already has melaleuca oil in it!) Pour the soapy solution into a spray bottle, and use it to clean surfaces all over your home!

Reusable Kitchen Wipes

Those antibacterial wipes are certainly convenient for wiping down countertops and other surfaces in your kitchen, but they can also be pretty expensive (and not to mention wasteful!) But with a little castile soap, you can make your very own kitchen cleaning wipes that are totally reusable! Get the full instructions on how to make them at the link below.

Fruit & Veggie Wash

(But keep this spray away from plants, as this solution could burn them.)

Hand-Washing Dishes

Castile soap can even help you wash your dishes! Fill your sink with 10 parts warm water and 1 part castile soap. Wash and rinse your dishes as usual. You can also use this ratio to make a soapy solution that’s perfect for those refillable dish scrubbing brushes.

Dog Shampoo

Castile soap makes a great dog shampoo! Just wet your dog’s coat and work a small amount of castile soap into it until you achieve a good lather. Continue shampooing, then rinse well. Your dog’s coat will look clean and shiny once it’s dry!

Window Cleaner

If your windows need a lot of help in the cleaning department, use castile soap to help power through the grime. Add 1 tablespoon of castile soap to 1 quart of water, then pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Spray it liberally onto your windows and use a sponge or scrubber to get through the grime. Follow with a rinse of club soda, or a mixture of 1 part water and 1 part vinegar.

Honey Facial Cleanser

Combine 3 tablespoons of honey, 1/2 cup of vegetable glycerin, and 2 tablespoons of castile soap. Pour the mixture into a small bottle, and use as a facial cleanser! The honey helps your skin retain moisture, and the soap helps clean your skin without drying it out.

Foot Scrub

Make a simple foot scrub by combining 1 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon of castile soap, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and 4 drops of peppermint essential oil. (Or use peppermint castile soap and eliminate the essential oil.) Scrub away dry skin for softer feet!

Toilet Touch-Ups

Castile soap can help you keep your toilet looking clean(er) between bathroom cleanings. Just put a few drops of castile soap into your toilet, then give it a quick swish with your toilet brush, and flush.

Sinus Helper

Use a castile soap with essential oils to help clear sinus congestion. Fill a large bowl with hot water, and add a squeeze of peppermint or eucalyptus castile soap. Then lean over the bowl, and drape a towel over your head to trap the steam inside. Breathe deeply, and you’ll feel your airways and nasal passages start to open up!

Bedding Wash

Here’s a special wash technique that will help kill and eliminate dust mites from your bedding. Add 1/3 cup of castile soap to your washer along with the bedding. Pour 1/2 cup of vinegar into the fabric softener cup or dispenser, so it gets added during the rinse cycle. Then turn your washer on to the hottest water setting. Once the wash cycle is done, dry your bedding on the hottest dry cycle. (This is for a normal washer. If you have an HE washer, cut the amount of castile soap and vinegar in half.)

Makeup Remover

Make a simple makeup remover solution by mixing equal parts castile soap, witch hazel, and a carrier oil of your choice. Use with a soft cloth or cotton pad to gently remove eye makeup.

Floor Cleaner

Add 1/2 cup of castile soap to 3 gallons of hot water to make a simple mopping solution. Dip your mop into your bucket, and mop your way to clean, shiny floors!

Makeup Brush Cleaner

Squirt a small amount of castile soap into a small bowl, then fill with warm water. Swish your makeup brushes around in the soapy water, making sure to get the soapy solution well into the bristles. Rinse the brushes with cool water until the water runs clear, then allow the brushes to air dry.

Bonus Tip: Turn Bar Soap Into Liquid Soap

A lot of times a bar of castile soap can be quite a bit cheaper than the liquid kind. And you can turn a bar of castile soap into liquid soap really easily! Just chop up the bar of soap into tiny pieces, then place the soap pieces in a mason jar. Fill the mason jar with boiling water, and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Stir well to incorporate the dissolved soap into the water.

This week’s Testimonies!


  • I am 60 years old I use MMS and I have given MMS to other we have witnessed its healing powers for 5-6 years now  I challenge anyone to try and keep a cold for more than day with MMS  Stop a cold in it tracks this will give you faith then continue to use MMS for every illness and you will be amazed!
  • CeeCee

I had a bad hear infection , I meant bad , bad , I went to doctors ,they couldn’t d anything for my hear , I put mms in cotton balls and put it in my hear , activate it first , thanks God for giving to him in Jesus name

  • Brytania B

MMS got rid of my Cystitis! Doctors prescribed medication that wasn’t doing anything for me. I took MMS and within 2 days I was cured.

  • Marie

I had a dermititas on my hands due to hairdressing, used mms topically for a few weeks and now my hands a great , thank you so much Jim humble

  • Symmetrical Origami

I'm currently taking mms for roughly 2 weeks already on protocol 1000. 8 hours religiously. I contracted staph doing Martial arts, went to the Dr and gave me bactrim antibiotics for 10 days, it helped but then returned a bit. bought mms, on second week, i feel more energy now, and I'm also using a spray every hour for 8 hours along with my 8 hours daily dosage. I'm very happy so far because the staph outbreaks are now scars, my immune system is getting stronger too.

  • Barcelonaloca

the doc did his diagnosis, confirmed it was staph and tried to use all of those fine sounding and expensive antibiotics on me, I bought them, to apease him, but I never used them and did MMS protocols instead; I was rid of it in about 10 days. This was in 2008, I've never had a relapse. My mother-in-law, whom I love dearly, did all that docs told her, including operations and she's still not well, she can't barely walk, still is on antibiotics, and it looks like it may kill her. Try as I may I cannot convince her to try MMS because of what the trolls have posted online about MMS. In my  book, her great suffering is on their hands.

  • Trying to become a mommy

 Thank you so much for sharing this testimony, i tried the castor oil last Friday and this Monday morning all my cysts came out!!!! Finally after years and years of trying a bunch of meds and natural remedies i finally found something that worked for me!!!!! Thank God and bless you for this video i will be forever grateful ?????✨

  • Starfiremale

I sometimes get congestion in my one lung,, I'm a smoker, so I always keep an atomizer spray full of MMS, a few deep inhales every four or five weeks      cleans my lung out brilliantly,,

  • Pat
    I had cellutitus that is a staph infection and it kept coming back. The doctor told me I was not keeping the area clean. I need to bathe more often when I hadn't changed up how I bathed.  Since I have been taking MMS it is all gone.  Plus my blood pressure I was having to take every day I am now down to taking it every 2 or 3 days instead of every day.  I have Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis and my back hurts all the time and I can't take anything but Advil because I end up in the emergency room if I take Vicodin, codeine, etc.  Since I have been taking MMS that pain is gone.  MMS does work!  They want you to think it doesn't so the AMA can sell you their drugs.  I call them the American Murder Association!  God Bless and try it and do what it says!  What do you have to lose????
  • Christopher Debattista

 MMS has cured a lot of people in Sierra Leone! God bless you lads       :)

  • Horus heru

My best friend had full blown aids and weighed only 80 pounds. I gave him mms every day and 8 times a day. He gained 50 pounds and was solid. I    took him for blood tests and they could not find any hiv in his test results.. I believe he had hpv as well and that too was gone.. Mms is a threat to the people           who want to control us and want population control. You all need to get as much mms as possible and stock pile the stuff and learn all of the protocols and spread the word and not let the enemy stop this revolution.. God gave us MMS. Jim Humble is a        God sent man.

  • Michelle C

            its working for me too and all my tumors are disappearing as well

  • LQLinc

MMS worked for me on 2 different occasions. Four years ago I cured a staph infection in 2 weeks that had plagued me for 4 months. It never came back.    Six months ago I used it for meningitis and was cured in 1 week. It is not bleach. I have an             anemia of the hemoglobin and can't use bleach to clean with, etc as it causes nausea, cyanosis and headaches. I never had any of these reactions with MMS. Listen to Lindsay!

  • CoachSteve4u

At the age of only 8 years old (8 years ago), my son was diagnosed with melanoma and had to have a huge chunk of flesh   removed from his forearm.  Imagine the devastated feeling I had   as a father. About 5 years ago, my son got another spot on the   back of his ankle. They would have cut his Achilles tendon to remove it!  He would never have been able to walk again. I searched for alternative ways of healing him, and found Jim Humble. I emailed Jim, and he gave me the protocol for curing   my son of melanoma. I applied the mms mixed with dmso, and  overnight, the melanoma was killed and peeled off! I couldn't believe it myself. Within two days, all that was left was a nice pink spot where the melanoma was. I was so, so thankful. I have pictures to prove it. If anyone wants to know more, contact me at     This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We have to be aware that the FDA is in bed with the drug companies and that they don't want people to know about this. Spread the news while we can.  MMS is       amazing.

  • Mark and Jonathan,

I can’t THANK YOU  enough for stopping by and going out of your way to see me. I was very happy to see you and I know you have a busy schedule so making that detour was a sacrifice.

Sorry you had to see me in skin and bones at 110 pounds, but somehow you’ve given me faith to continue on.  I am taking the baths with MMS at night, which helps me sleep through the night.  It’s amazing.  For the last four or five days, no pain what so ever.  I don’t know if I told you, but all my doctors a the V.A. gave up on me.  They really used the old phrase, “you’ve done all we can do, go home and get your affairs in order.”  My primary care doctor asked me why I wanted to have a vitamin D blood test, because it doesn’t do anything. This is there training Mark.  They have great memories and are like parrots, but they don’t understand the body and how to heal.  Only how to treat symptoms.I have been reading your book, it’s truly a treasure. You’ve put something in print that everyone should be reading. THANK YOU.

I don’t know why, but I feel extremely happy.  Sometimes I wake up smiling and laughing.  I believe I have a great positive attitude and will get through this rough period.  Everyone thought I was going to die in early December 2017, and we even had Christmas two weeks early.  I did get my affairs in order and gave everything away.  Outside of my clothes, I own nothing.  I gave everything to my kids and grandkids.  I feel like I am the richest man in the world.  Tomorrow is Easter and I feel like I’m on track with God for the first time in many decades. 

I’m sharing your book with my family and hope they will become followers too.  I plan on staying on the program for at least seven years.  I’m keeping away from all the Monsanto food.  I love the meal plan you’ve encouraged me to restart. 

I forgot to ask you for my bishop card when you were here, can you please send it.  I look forward to seeing you in a year to follow up on my progress.  Thanks again for everything.  You and your family are in my prayers.

Sincerely, Tommy


 I have to cover this so ALL our newsletter readers know the REAL Truth! Here is a letter from a reporter in the U.K. “investigating” the Genesis II Church.

Dear Bishop Jordan Grenon,

I received the MMS and Activator.

I actually ordered the solutions as part of a UK investigation into chemicals being sold as autism 'cures'.

I am a journalist working for a British autism charity.

I haven't lied to you - my husband and I do believe our son is on the autism spectrum and we are awaiting our next step in the diagnostic process. 

I'm contacting you today so you have right of reply concerning this investigation. 

Do you have any response to the observations that:

- you were happy to affirm claims that MMS and activator can 'cure' autism

- you believed the person in contact to be 'desperate' and were happy to sell the chemicals 

- you acknowledge sending these chemicals to the UK previously

- you say you have had success but offer no evidence other than church testimonials

- in response to what you believed to be an anxious parent you offered your own belief of what autism is ('heavy metals in the brain') without mention of your credentials in making that judgement

- we consider your organisation to be exploitative of families in a desperate situation 

In addition please could you respond to the following:

                        - you say your chemicals clean out the body - is                              
autism something to be cleaned out?

- you refer to post MMS treatment as being able to function correctly - is someone with autism somehow incorrectly functioning?

- on your church website you claim to be non-religious yet include a Christian tract with the chemicals. Why?

- Are you deliberately using the guise of a church to legitimize your methods and products?

- Are you aware that even low doses of your product in line with early stage protocol would be exceeding what the UK government deem a safe level of CD in water? (3000 x more than the maximum level here)?

- are you aware that in your videos the 'signs' that your product is working (sickness, diarrhea, fever) are also signs of toxic poisoning? 

Thank you for taking the time to read my questions. I eagerly await your reply.


On 03/27/2018 07:42 AM, Jonathan Grenon wrote:


First of all, you must refer to the MMS and Activator as our Church's Sacraments.  So be careful how you speak of our Sacraments and how we use them.   Do not refer to our Sacred Sacraments as chemicals or that we sell them.  We accept donations for our Sacraments and give much away freely. 

I feel as if you are trying to make an interview and or investigation of some sort.  We haven't agreed to an interview and will not anyways, as I see you have an agenda to meet.    You may consider whatever you like, that means but dung to us.  Have you ever given the Church Sacraments a try?  Or are you just another one of the medical nazis?

Non- religious means we are not a one set religion. This Church is made to help mankind, what you choose to worship is up to you.    I am a Bible believer and in my Church I will express the love of God and how he sent His son Jesus Christ to save the world from sin.  Do you know Jesus as your personal Savior? We have many other members who do not believe the same, but they are still part of our Church and they do also express their personal beliefs. 

I will not waste my dear time with your useless questions that have already been answered many times ago.   You do your thing and dont question us, we will continue our mission. 

And for you to say we dont have evidence is like a slap in the face.  So the people who have had their lives changed for the good and gave a video testimony out of gratitude, that doesnt count for you? I guess you will stay blind in your little puny world of drugs and doctors, sounds like health to me. O, by the way.  I gave my testimony of how I was cured of MRSA.  And guess what, many have seen it and it has helped them.  So I am accomplishing what I have set out for, to change this world for the better.  The Truth will make your free, but only if you want the Truth!!!

            Bishop Jonathan

  1. PS.  God guide you, you need HIM!!!


My reply to Lindsay Gould;

Lindsey, I am Mark Grenon the co-founder of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing. My son Jonathan answered you and I don't feel like I need to answer you again. He did a good job telling you the Truth. I do want to say is Why are you allowing your children to be injected with these poisons that are destroying these poor children's health? Are you not checking 0out what is inside these drugs? You and your husband are not doing your due diligence and  your children are the ones being vaccine damaged! That is what you should investigate if you are an investigator! we will not stop until ALL the vaccines are stopped because they NEVER have worked and the FDA, EPA, DOJ, CDC and yes the corrupt "trading standards" that work for the Big Pharma and the lying British Govt. that are ONLY whores of the Rothschilds! You are believing a lie wake up!

May the Lord guide you into Truth!


Then she writes this the me the other day:

Dear Mark and Jordan, 

Thank you for replying. 

Your remarks were taken as right of reply for my investigation, which went live as part of world autism awareness week.

G2Voice #082: Are toxins causing most allergies or intolerances?

      In this short video you’ll see a visual demonstration of reactions occurring in your body as you are exposed to pollen and other protein allergens. Seasonal allergies cause a number of symptoms, including sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, watery and itchy eyes and itching in your nose, mouth or throat. These are your body's reactions to foreign particles (allergens). The first time your body is exposed to an allergen, your plasma cells release immunoglobulin (IGE), an antibody design specific to an allergen.

Allergy 3D Medical Animation

The IGE attaches to the surface of mast cells found in surface tissue, such as your skin and nasal mucosa. Mast cells release a number of important cell mediators, one of which is histamine helping to mediate an inflammatory response.

The second time you encounter a particular allergen, your mast cells are activated and release a powerful combination of histamines, leukotrienes and prostaglandins, triggering a cascade of symptoms you associate with allergies. The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) explains:5

"One of the marvels of the human body is that it can defend itself against harmful invaders such as viruses or bacteria. In some people, the body reacts to harmless substances such as dust, mold or pollen by producing an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE).

When patients with one of the allergic diseases (such as rhinitis or asthma) are exposed to these substances, the immune system then rallies its defenses, launching a host of complex chemical weapons to attack and destroy the supposed enemy.

In the process, some unpleasant and, in extreme cases, life-threatening symptoms may be experienced … An allergic reaction may occur anywhere in the body, but usually appears in the skin, eyes, lining of the stomach, nose, sinuses, throat and lungs — places where special immune system cells are stationed to fight off invaders that are inhaled, swallowed or come in contact with the skin."

That might be the case BUT what if…..?

What if what? Well, let’s look at this from another angle. What if the so-called “allergens” were covered in toxins and that is what the body is reacting to and not something naturally occurring that hasn’t bothered people for thousands of years until the last, let’s say 200 years. Is that possible? Could the chemicals being sprayed in the air daily ALL over the world be what is causing so many “allergies”? Or is the FACT that the majority of the world’s children are being ritualistically poisoned by chemicals in their “mandatory” vaccine programs and damaging many, if not all to some extent, by causing the body to react to “allergens” that it would not necessarily be a problem. Why? Because it is naturally occurring that’s why!

Case in point: Raw Milk  We see people with “lactose intolerance” drinking raw milk and seeing their “intolerance” go away. Why?

The “intolerance to lactose” was nothing more than drinking or eating POISON PASTEURIZED dairy that the body was rejecting!

Toxins in the skies? This is REAL history:

NOTE: Here is the “typical” explanation of what allergies and intolerances are in the body, but are they being “set off” by a toxic environment and diet? I think you will see that things that were throughout history NOT causing allergies like raw milk, peanuts, gluten protein because they are naturally occurring. What has happened that is causing these changes?

Is Roundup the Cause of 'Gluten Intolerance'?

A compelling new peer-reviewed report from two U.S. scientists argues that increased use of Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide (trade name Roundup) could be the cause of the epidemic of symptoms labeled as “gluten intolerance.”

Increased use of Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide (trade name Roundup) could be the cause of the epidemic of  “gluten intolerance”, according to a compelling new peer-reviewed report from two U.S. scientists. Farmers are now using glyphosate not only to control weeds but also to dry down wheat, rice, sugarcane and other crops just before harvest, resulting in higher residues in the foods we eat. The abstract from the paper "Glyphosate, Pathways to Modern Diseases II: Celiac Sprue and Gluten Intolerance" is below.  You can read the full report here and view graphs in the Slideshow connecting increased use of glyphosate with growing rates of celiac incidence, deaths from intestinal infections, acute kidney disease and deaths due to Parkinson’s.    

Celiac disease, and more generally, gluten intolerance, is a growing problem worldwide, but especially in North America and Europe, where an estimated 5 percent of the population now suffers from it. Symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, skin rashes, macrocytic anemia and depression. It is a multifactorial disease associated with numerous nutritional deficiencies as well as reproductive issues and increased risk to thyroid disease, kidney failure and cancer. Here, we propose that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup, is the most important causal factor of this epidemic. Fish exposed to glyphosate develop digestive problems that are reminiscent of celiac disease. Celiac disease is associated with imbalances of gut bacteria that can be fully explained by the known effects of glyphosate on gut bacteria. Characteristics of celiac disease point to impairment in many cytochrome P450 enzymes, which are involved with detoxifying environmental toxins, activating vitamin D3, catabolizing vitamin A, and maintaining bile acid production and sulfate supplies to the gut. Glyphosate is known to inhibit cytochrome P450 enzymes. Deficiencies in iron, cobalt, molybdenum, copper and other rare metals associated with celiac disease can be attributed to glyphosate’s strong ability to chelate these elements. Deficiencies in tryptophan, tyrosine, methionine, and selenomethionine associated with celiac disease match glyphosate’s known depletion of these amino acids. Celiac disease patients have an increased risk to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which has been implicated in glyphosate exposure. Glyphosate residues in wheat and other crops are likely increasing recently due to the growing practice of crop desiccation just prior to harvest. We argue that the practice of “ripening” sugar cane with glyphosate may explain the recent surge in kidney failure among agricultural workers in Central America. We conclude with a plea to governments to reconsider policies regarding the safety of glyphosate residues in foods.



Here is a good article to read about the why we have “peanut” allergies?

Vaccines and the Peanut Allergy Epidemic

Dr Tim O’Shea

Have you ever wondered why so many kids these days are allergic to peanuts? Where did this allergy come from all of a sudden?

Before 1900, reactions to peanuts were unheard of. Today almost a 1.5 million children in this country are allergic to peanuts.

What happened? Why is everybody buying EpiPens now?

Looking at all the problems with vaccines during the past decade, [2] just a superficial awareness is enough to raise the suspicion that vaccines might have some role in the appearance of any novel allergy among children.

But reactions to peanuts are not just another allergy. Peanut allergy has suddenly emerged as the #1 cause of death from food reactions, being in a category of allergens able to cause anaphylaxis. This condition brings the risk of asthma attack, shock, respiratory failure, and even death. Primarily among children.

Sources cited in Heather Fraser’s 2011 book The Peanut Allergy Epidemic suggest a vaccine connection much more specifically. We learn that a class of vaccine adjuvants – excipients – is a likely suspect in what may accurately be termed an epidemic. [1]

But let’s back up a little. We have to look at both vaccines and antibiotics in recent history, and the physical changes the ingredients in these brand new medicines introduced into the blood of children.


Before 1900, anaphylactic shock was virtually unknown. The syndrome of sudden fainting, respiratory distress, convulsions, and sometimes death did not exist until vaccinators switched from the lancet to the hypodermic needle. That transformation was essentially complete by the turn of the century in the western world.

Right at that time, a new disease called Serum Sickness began to afflict thousands of children. A variety of symptoms, including shock, fainting, and sometimes death, could suddenly result following an injection.

Instead of covering it up, the connection was well recognized and documented in the medical literature of the day. Dr Clemens Von Pirquet, who actually coined the word “allergy,” was a leading researcher in characterizing the new disease. [5] Serum Sickness was the first mass allergenic phenomenon in history. What had been required for its onset, apparently, was the advent of the hypodermic needle.

When the needle replaced the lancet in the late 1800s, Serum Sickness soon became a frequent visitor to the child’s bed. It was a known consequence of vaccinations. Indeed, the entire field of modern allergy has evolved from the early study of Serum Sickness coming from vaccines.




Von Pirquet recognized that vaccines had 2 primary effects: immunity and hypersensitivity. [5] He said they were inseparable: the one was the price of the other.

In other words, if we were going to benefit from the effects of mass immunization, we must accept the downside of mass hypersensitivity as a necessary co-feature. Modern medicine has decided that this double effect should be kept secret, so they don’t allow it to be brought up much.

Many doctors in the early 1900s were dead set against vaccines for this precise reason. The advertised benefit was not proven to be worth the risk. Doctors like Walter Hadwen MD, Wm. Howard Hay, and Alfred Russell Wallace saw how smallpox vaccines had actually increased the incidence of smallpox. [2,3] Wallace was one of the principal epidemiologists of the age, and his charts showing the increase in smallpox death from vaccination are unassailable – meticulous primary sources.

Another landmark researcher of the early 1900s was Dr Charles Richet, the one who coined the term anaphylaxis. [4] Richet focused on the reactions that some people seemed to have to certain foods. He found that with food allergies, the reaction came on as the result of intact proteins in the food having bypassed the digestive system and making their way intact into the blood, via leaky gut.

Foreign protein in the blood, of course, is a universal trigger for allergic reaction, not just in man but in all animals. [6]

But Richet noted that in the severe cases, food anaphylaxis did not happen just by eating a food. That would simply be food poisoning.

Food anaphylaxis is altogether different. This sudden, violent reaction requires an initial sensitization involving injection of some sort, followed by a later ingestion of the sensitized food. Get the shot, then later eat the food.

The initial exposure creates the hypersensitivity. The second exposure would be the violent, perhaps fatal, physical event.

Richet’s early work around 1900 was primarily with eggs, meat, milk and diphtheria proteins. Not peanuts. The value of Richet’s research with reactive foods was to teach us the sequence of allergic sensitivity leading to anaphylaxis, how that had to take place.

Soon other doctors began to notice striking similarities between food reactions and the serum sickness that was associated with vaccines. Same exact clinical presentation.


Next up was penicillin, which became popular in the 1940s. It was soon found that additives called excipients were necessary to prolong the effect of the antibiotic injected into the body. The excipients would act as carrier molecules. Without excipients, the penicillin would only last about 2 hours. Refined oils worked best, acting as time-release capsules for the antibiotic.

Peanut oil became the favorite, because it worked well, and was available and inexpensive.

Allergy to penicillin became common, and was immediately recognized as a sensitivity to the excipient oils. To the present day, that’s why they always ask if you’re allergic to penicillin. The allergy is a sensitivity to the excipients.

By 1953 as many as 12% of the population was allergic to penicillin. [1] But considering the upside with life-threatening bacterial infections, it was still a good deal – a worthwhile risk.

By 1950 antibiotics were being given out like M&Ms. Soldiers, children, anybody with any illness, not just bacterial. Despite Alexander Fleming’s severe warnings against prophylactic antibiotics, antibiotics were given indiscriminately as the new wonder drug. Just in case anything. [7] Only then, in the 1950s, did peanut allergy begin to occur, even though Americans had been eating peanuts for well over a century.

Remember – just eating peanuts cannot cause peanut allergy. Except if they are allowed to become moldy of course, in which case aflatoxins are released. But that’s really not a peanut allergy.

When peanut allergy did appear, the numbers of cases were fairly small and initially it wasn’t even considered worthy of study.




The big change came with vaccines. Peanut oils were introduced as vaccine excipients in the mid 1960s. An article appeared in the NY Times on 18 Sept, 1964 that would never be printed today. [8] The author described how a newly patented ingredient containing peanut oil was added as an adjuvant to a new flu vaccine, in order to prolong the “immunity.” The oil was reported to act as a time release capsule, and theoretically enhanced the vaccine’s strength. Same mechanism as with penicillin.

That new excipient, though not approved in the US, became the model for subsequent vaccines. ([1] p 103)

By 1980 peanut oil had become the preferred excipient in vaccines, even though the dangers were well documented. [9] It was considered an adjuvant – a substance able to increase reactivity to the vaccine. This reinforced the Adjuvant Myth: the illusion that immune response is the same as immunity [2].

The pretense here is that the stronger the allergic response to the vaccine, the greater will be the immunity that is conferred. This fundamental error is consistent throughout vaccine literature of the past century.

Historically, researchers who challenged this Commandment of vaccine mythology did not advance their careers.




The first study of peanut allergies was not undertaken until 1973. It was a study of peanut excipients in vaccines. Soon afterwards, and as a result of the attention from that study, manufacturers were no longer required to disclose all the ingredients in vaccines.

What is listed in the Physicians Desk Reference in each vaccine section is not the full formula. Same with the inserts. Suddenly after 1973, that detailed information was proprietary: the manufacturers knew it must be protected. Intellectual property. So now they only were required to describe the formula in general.

Why was peanut allergy so violent? Adjuvant pioneer Maurice Hilleman claimed peanut oil adjuvants had all protein removed by refining. [9] The FDA disagreed. They said some peanut protein traces would always persist [10]- that even the most refined peanut oils still contained some traces of intact peanut proteins. This was the reason doctors were directed to inject vaccines intramuscular rather than intravenous – a greater chance of absorption of intact proteins, less chance of reaction.

But all their secret research obviously wasn’t enough to prevent sensitivity. Mother Nature bats last: no intact proteins in the body. 60 million years of Natural Selection didn’t create the mammalian immune system for nothing. Put intact proteins, peanut or whatever, for any imagined reason into the human system and the inflammatory response will fire. And since the goal of oil emulsion adjuvants was to prolong reactivity in the first place – the notion of time-release – this led to sensitization.


Although peanut allergies became fairly common during the 1980s, it wasn’t until the early 1990s when there was a sudden surge of children reacting to peanuts – the true epidemic appeared. What changed? The Mandated Schedule of vaccines for children doubled from the 80s to the 90s:

1980 – 20 vaccines
1995 – 40 vaccines
2011 – 68 vaccines

It would be imprudent enough to feed peanuts to a newborn, since the digestive system is largely unformed. But this is much worse – injecting intact proteins directly into the infant’s body. In 36 vaccines before the age of 18 months.

A new kind of anaphylaxis appeared with peanut reactions: reverse anaphylaxis. (p 172, [1]) The reaction was not only to the sensitizing antigen, but to the weird new antibodies that had just been introduced in the human species by the new antigen. Without the usual benefit of the evolutionary process.

As vaccines doubled between the 1980s and the 1990s, hundreds of thousands of kids were now exhibiting peanut sensitivities, with frequent cases of anaphylaxis reactions, sometimes fatal.

But nobody talked about it.

Following the next enormous increase in vaccines on the Mandated Schedule after 9/11, whereby the total shot up to 68 recommended vaccines, the peanut allergy soon reached epidemic proportions: a million children: 1.5% of them. These numbers fit the true definition of epidemic even though that word has never been used in mainstream literature with respect to peanut allergy, except in Fraser’s odd little book.

Many researchers, not just Heather Fraser, could see very clearly that

“The peanut allergy epidemic in children was precipitated by childhood injections.”
( [1], p 106)

But with the newfound research, the medical profession will do what they always must do – bury it. Protect the companies. So no money will be ever allocated from NIH to study the obvious connection between vaccine excipients and peanut allergy. That cannot happen, primarily because it would require a control group – an unvaccinated population. And that is the Unspoken Forbidden.

Same line of reasoning that has prevented Wakefield’s work from ever being replicated in a mainstream US clinical study. No unvaccinated populations. Which actually means no studies whose outcome could possibly implicate vaccines as a source of disease or immunosuppression. Vaccines as a cause of an allergy epidemic? Impossible. Let’s definitely not study it.

Instead let’s spend the next 20 years looking for the Genetic Link to the childhood peanut allergy epidemic…

In such a flawed system, any pretense of true clinical science is revealed as fatally handicapped of course: we are looking for the truth, wherever our studies shall take us, except for this, and this, and oh yes, this.

Evidence for the connection between peanut excipients and vaccines is largely indirect today, because of the circling of the wagons by the manufacturers. It is very difficult to find peanut excipients listed in the inserts and PDR listings of vaccines. Simple liability.


So in addition to all the other problems with vaccines delineated in ourtext, now we have a new one – peanut oil excipients. Which all by themselves can cause severe, even fatal, episodes of shock, as well as chronic allergy – irrespective of the mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, ethylene glycol, and the attenuated pathogens which the manufacturers do admit to.

Quite a toxic burden to saddle the unprotected newborn with. No wonder the US Supreme Court refers to vaccines as “unavoidably unsafe.”

Childhood allergies doubled between 1980 and 2000 and have doubled again since that time. [11] Theories abound. Childhood vaccines doubled at the same time. Why is there a virtual blackout of viable discussion about this glaring fact?

The epidemic of peanut allergy is just one facet of this much broader social phenomenon. We have the sickest, most allergic kids of any country, industrialized or not, on Earth. A study of the standard literature of vaccines is identical to a study of the history of adjuvants – an exercise in cover-up and dissimulation. Unvaccinated children don’t become autistic. And they don’t go into shock from eating peanuts.

But there can never be a formal clinical study where the control group is unvaccinated. NIH would never do that. They cannot. They know the outcome.

Allergies vs. Intolerances


If you tell someone that you’re “lactose-intolerant,” one of the first questions is likely to be, “so…you’re allergic to milk?” But while an allergy and an intolerance both make you feel sick, they’re actually two completely different biological issues.

An allergy is a problem caused when IgE antibodies in your immune system mistakenly think that a harmless substance (like pollen or cat hair) is actually dangerous. Trying to defend your body, these IgE antibodies trigger the release of histamine, which provokes an inflammatory response to get rid of the “threat.” You sneeze when you have a cold because your body is trying to get rid of the germs; you sneeze when you have an allergy because your body thinks cat dander is a kind of germ. Sometimes, this response is nothing but an inconvenience: hayfever isn’t fun, but it’s also not a serious problem. On the other hand, some allergies cause a life-threatening condition called anaphylaxis – peanut allergies are so notoriously severe that several schools have banned peanuts altogether.

While allergies are all biologically similar, intolerances have a much greater variety of causes. In general, allergies are problems with the immune system, while intolerances are problems with the digestive system, but the term “intolerance” is really more of a catch-all label. If a food makes you sick, but you don’t have the specific IgE allergic response, it’s probably an intolerance. Lack of certain enzymes can cause a food intolerance, as is the case with lactose intolerance (caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase). Mabasorption in the gut, immune problems that don’t have to do with IgE antibodies, or metabolic disorders like diabetes are also common culprits.

Other medical conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) can provoke a reaction to a wide variety of foods. One common problem that many people with IBS suffer from is FODMAPs intolerance. FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols) are small carbohydrates that are not completely absorbed in the small intestine, and are easily and quickly fermented by the gut flora. This can cause bloating, gas, and abdominal pain – if you have SIBO as well, the excess gut flora will only make the symptoms worse.

Food Toxins

Allergies and intolerances cause you to have a reaction to a food that isn’t necessarily dangerous for everyone. Someone with an egg white allergy, for example, cannot eat eggs because of their particular allergy, not because eggs are inherently unsafe for people to eat. Food toxins, on the other hand, are substances that are harmful to everyone. Basically, toxins are substances that all humans are intolerant to, just because of the way our digestive systems function.  

Toxins end up in ordinarily harmless food from the environment: pesticides, herbicides, hormones, and other chemicals can leak into the food and water supply all too easily.


These Common Chemicals Trigger Allergies

Scientists are learning that chemicals you encounter every day can interfere with your immune system, leading to allergies and other problems.

By Emily Main December 6, 2010

Something to sneeze at: People with higher levels of certain chemicals in their bodies are more likely to have allergies.

Sneezing a bit more than you used to? Are you one of those people who "always gets sick"? It may have something to do with your toothpaste. A recent study published in Environmental Health Perspectives found that common chemicals such as triclosan, an antibacterial chemical used in toothpastes and other personal-care products, and bisphenol-A (BPA), used in plastics and the linings of food cans, could be interfering with our immune systems.

Knowing that BPA and triclosan both interfere with the endocrine system and act like estrogen in the body, the authors suspected that because estrogen protects immune cells, the chemicals could have some impact on the health of the immune system. Previous laboratory studies have also shown that BPA and triclosan, along with a few other endocrine-disrupting chemicals, increase production of cells that lead to allergy development.

The authors used data from the 2003 to 2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys, surveys conducted annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that measure the levels of chemicals and various health markers in a representative sampling of the U.S. public. The researchers compared levels of BPA and triclosan in roughly 5,000 participants' urine samples with two markers of immune-system health: a professional diagnosis of allergies or hayfever and levels of antibodies for cytomegalovirus, a common virus that most people contract at a very young age and that stays in our bodies for the rest of our lives. "Controlling this virus becomes a top priority for immune system, and high antibody levels signal that the immune system is less effective at controlling it," says Erin Rees Clayton, PhD, research investigator at the University of Michigan School of Public Health and one of the study's coauthors.

Triclosan was significantly associated with allergies and hayfever, their analysis showed. That finding supports the "hygiene hypothesis," or the idea that the more we try to sanitize our homes and our environments, the less able our immune systems are to defend us against common "invaders" like allergens and pollen. Although BPA wasn't found to have an impact on allergies, it did seem to affect those cytomegalovirus antibodies. Adults over 18 who had higher levels of BPA also had higher levels of antibodies, suggesting that their immune systems weren't functioning as well as they should be.

Scrubbing yourself clean with triclosan-saturated antibacterial soap may be a bad deal for your immune system. And so might BPA, which lurks in canned-food linings and cash-register receipts, among other places.

"Hygiene clearly has very important benefits for protecting ourselves from infection," says Clayton. "But some of the chemicals in cleaning products and hygiene products may have more risks than benefits." How these chemicals actually interfere with the immune system is unclear, Clayton says. But one thing her results do suggest "is that the timing of exposure to BPA and perhaps the length of time someone's exposed may be affecting immune-system response." So older adults who've been exposed to BPA their entire lives are more likely to suffer immune problems than younger kids are (but at the same time, BPA has other effects on small children, including behavioral problems, so parents should avoid exposing children to it as much as possible).

Read More: How Antibacterial Chemicals End Up in Your Food

The good news about triclosan (the active ingredient in antibacterial products) is that once you stop using products containing it, the levels in your body drop relatively quickly. BPA isn't quite so easy to avoid. The World Health Organization recently declared food as our primary source of exposure to BPA, but a study published last year found that people who'd fasted for 24 hours still had somewhat high levels of BPA in their bodies. It's presumed that we excrete BPA within six or so hours of consuming it, so those results suggest that it either isn't excreted as quickly as thought, or that we're constantly being exposed to the chemical through other nonfood sources, such as ATM and cash-register receipts and the flame retardants used in mattresses and furniture.

To avoid BPA, limit your consumption of canned foods, don't microwave in plastic containers (BPA is a component of some plastics), and avoid other known exposure sources, such as receipts. Decline receipts at the ATM, gas stations, and any other retail outlet that gives you the choice. When you do get a receipt, store it in a separate envelope, rather than in your wallet.

To avoid triclosan, avoid all products labeled "antibacterial" or "antimicrobial." The chemical is listed as an active ingredient in all personal-care products in which it's used. But triclosan is also added to household goods as diverse as cutting boards and garden hoses. Keep an eye out for terms like "Microban" or "Biofresh" as both are trade names for triclosan.

Tune into the G2Voice Broadcast #80 this Sunday:

Our 58th G2 Seminar was a success in Calgary, Alberta, Canada!

March 25th, at 10 AM CST on

NOTE: Now every week the G2Voice Broadcast is being subtitled in Spanish!



20 New Members! Our 58th G2 Church was the 1st of our New Seminar Training which consisted of the following:

This seminar answered questions like:

  • What is the dis-ease?
  • How does the body become dis-eased?
  • How was the body’s Digestive System designed to work?
  • Should you ASK YOUR DOCTOR anything about health or nutrition?
  • Does the Liver NEED to be cleansed?
  • Why is there so much Cancer in today’s world?
  • How to “restore health” from various types dis-ease of the body?
  • Are there testimonies of people restoring their health without a doctor?
  • How can I be involved with “creating a world without dis-ease?


We at the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing have been involved in one of the most comprehensive, worldwide, cross cultural broad spectrum voluntary human health studies of this world for the past 7 years. If you include Jim Humble and his studies in Africa, it has been almost 20 years. Ninety-five percent of the world's diseases have been treated with the Genesis II Church Protocols with great success. No monies were received from any pharmaceutical/medical companies wanting a certain result. The people of this world that have followed the G2C protocols have not been paid in anyway, but they have “self-dosed” themselves voluntarily. “Self-care” is what is being taught and encouraged by the Genesis II Church worldwide and it is working incredibly. Every person on this earth has the God-given right to control their own health and not rely on the pharmaceutical/medical industry. Archbishop Mark S. Grenon

Now, that’s scientific  –  Observation and Repeatability. That is why you’ll hear me say we are doing “clinical studies” all of the world with humans with our G2 Sacraments and seeing consistent results! Because that is exactly what we are doing and I will show you testimonies and how to do it for YOURSELF! Let’s look at the digestive system which to me is where ALL of our problems will start and


Let me just share with you 4 testimonies we that really stood out from this seminar.


Testimony #1 from our 58th G2 Church Seminar

The father of a 5 year old daughter told me the following story that happened to her when she was 4 months old! His daughter was diagnosed with 4 stage liver cancer and her liver was three times the size. The oncologist wanted to immediately start chemo and radiation on this 4 month old! The father and mother asked isn’t that a little harsh for a baby so young. The doctor said no you have to do it! The“health professionals” really pressured the family and tried to force the parents to force the treatments! The parents took the child out of the country to save her from this HORRIBLY toxic treatment! They immediately started the baby on MMS baths working up to 100 drops in bath for 20 minutes twice a day! The child is NOW 5 years old and completely cancer free! The child has been back in Canada and the oncologist that recommended the chemo has found out that the child is cured and still asked the father to allow the child to be treated with CHEMO!!!! Isn’t that insane? Why would a doctor ask to have the child treated with chemo? Maybe it is because the doctor receives a “payment” for the chemo treatment? We have very unscientific, corrupt and EVIL health care systems in this world that have no regard for health at all and are allowed to exist! This has to be stopped!



Testimony #2 from our 58th G2 Church Seminar

This comes from our Bishop Pedro. He had been dealing with Chronic psoriasis throughout his body for many years. It was getting worse and worse and the drugs and creams were NOT working and even making it worse each time he was on another “treatment”. After just a few months he was completely CURED and never came back! This CURE motivated him to help others to which he does each day!


Pedro’s Testimony:

Testimony #3 from our 58th G2 Church Seminar

(This is an MMS Love story!)

Erin was diagnosed with a VERY aggressive Breast cancer. She worked in the health care system in the IT department which gave her “good” contacts with the “best” and newest cancer treatments. She was called by a few of ‘specialists” pushing her to do a more thorough biopsy which she did and regrets. After the second biopsy the doctor wanted to quickly do a complete mastectomy and asked her to sign the permission form to which she refused feeling rushed. She finally succumbed to the pressure and allowed only the lump removed. After surgery she was AGAIN pressured to do chemo, radiation, Hormone therapy for 10 years! Long story short, her dad and her started looking for Alternative therapies and found our Bishop Pedro and fell in live and  has been on MMS for 2 ½ yrs and has no signs of any cancer anywhere!

Great story here:



 Testimony #4 from our 58th G2C Church Seminar



This testimony comes from out Newest Bishop, Bishop Barima


Bishop Barima has been working in Amsterdam and his home country, Ghana where he has established 4 areas where “health restoration” is being taught by the Genesis II Church Sacraments. He told me he has been downloading our newsletter and teaching them in Ghana ans Amsterdam.

You will enjoy Bishop Barima’s testimony::

This is a battle and we can see who our physical enemies are, BUT that isn’t the REAL enemy.


“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”, Ephesians 6:12

“If God be for us, who can be against us?”

Romans 8:31

The ANSWER to this question is, the WHOLE world can be against us But IT DOESN’T MATTER IF God is on our side!

This is the FACT that keeps me going and encouraged to do more! We are the Genesis II Church have a MISSION to “help create a world without DIS-EASE! Is it Possible? I believe it is NOT ONLY possible BUT it is happening!

 How to join us in our worldwide movement to create “a world without dis-ease”


If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” James 1:5

May the Lord guide you to come alongside of us to accomplish this!

If you haven’t seen this video yet, this will give you an overview of the Genesis II Church quickly:


G2Voice Episode 001- 09/18/2016 Discovery of MMS and the History of the Genesis II Church – (Video):

In June of 2010, Jim Humble and I, Mark Grenon, started a VERY unique Church called the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, whose purpose is to support and share the TRUTH regarding health maladies or as I like to say, the dis-ease of the body that is so prevalent in our world today.

  • We are a non-religious Church welcoming any and all races, creeds or religions to come and be part of creating a “world without dis-ease!”
  • Although we are non-religious, we believe that all mankind is spiritual by which we ALL are connected.
  • We ALL share our body, or temple, with our spirit. We have the God-given right and personal responsibility to maintain health of both.
  • It is very important to have this holistic approach of dealing with the whole person, physically, spiritually and mentally.
  • Health is affected by the soul's condition:

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers.” 3 John 2-5


  • The G2 Church has developed protocols to maintain and/or restore health. In all the main protocols we use a salt mineral called “MMS” or (Miracle Mineral Solution) which has been proven to be tremendously effective in curing cancer, diabetes, malaria, herpes, as well as Candida, parasites, MRSA, arthritis and other major and minor diseases.
  • You can see these results on our YouTube Channel, ) “MMSTestimonials”, or our website Many others who make claims about a certain health product DO NOT have testimonies. Follow the results!
  • MMS was discovered by a man named Jim Humble. Jim and I founded the Genesis II Church 2010 and, as of 2017, has grown to over 2900 members in over 135 countries with over 1900 trained Health Ministers and over 100 Bishops, who know our sacraments well to be able to help ANYONE “restore health” from any of the dis-eases we suffer with today. For the history of the Genesis II Church and Jim's discovery of MMS, please go to our very 1st Broadcast, Discovery of MMS and the History of the G2 Church.
  • MMS has become very controversial within the traditional medical arenas.

Why, because it is extremely effective and inexpensive and can be made in the home for pennies. To learn more about MMS and the controversy surrounding this significant protocol, watch the video: or

  • Explore our website:, or Our Youtube Channel, "MMSTestimonials" where you will find us interviewing people from around the world that have been cured using the Genesis II Church Protocols!

NOTE: I want EVERYONE to hear and see what the MAINSTREAM MEDIA has been saying about us to understand what we are dealing with. They lie about what we do and I have publicly answered them! Don't ever be afraid of the TRUTH. Give it out and it, TRUTH, will defend itself! I included these videos at the end of the chapter. You decide who is right. It is YOUR PERSONAL responsibility!

How does one become a member of G2 Church?

Note: Your spiritual life is in your hands. This is a Health Church. You need to seek Spiritual instruction for yourself. The very definition of Church and the etymological meaning from the Greek word Ekklesia, Church, is: “A called out group with a common purpose” – originally a political group, not a spiritual one. Later, the New Testament writers used this word to describe a group of followers of the Messiah or Christ, the Anointed ONE, Emmanuel – “God with us.” I happen to be a follower of HIM!! But the G2 Church is not about that, per se, but Health. All are welcome!! We have atheists as members because ALL need health and ALL don't want to be sick. I want to help the whole world “restore health,” not just the people who agree with me! Could you imagine going to a hospital in an emergency and not being helped because you didn't believe like them!!!! We are all created by the same Creator! Real LOVE tells us we need to help ALL mankind and God is love!

 “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” I John 4:7&8

Letter of Religious Exemption from vaccinations and/or mandatory medications


November 29, 2016

To Whom It May Concern,


This is in regard to our member:         Mark S. Grenon

                                                            Santa Marta, Colombia


            The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing is vehemently opposed to any toxin or poison being introduced into the body, “our temple,” by vaccine or any other means. The religious belief that our bodies are our personal temples that our spirits and souls live in, is based on the following Scripture:

 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” II Corinthians 3:16-17

The personal right and responsibility to maintain a healthy and clean temple is a fundamental belief of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing.

The following toxins are found in many vaccines being administered to the public:

  • Thimerosol – (Mercury) Highly poisonous to the human body
  • Squalene – adjuvant causing autoimmune response in the body
  • Formaldehyde – a known cancer-causing agent
  • Aluminum – a neurotoxin that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease
  • Triton X-100 – a detergent
  • Phenol – (carbolic acid)
  • Ethylene glycol – (antifreeze)
  • SV-40 – Cancer causing monkey virus
  • Various antibiotics: neomycin, streptomycin, gentamicin – can cause allergic reactions in some people
  • MSG – Known neurotoxin

We are not allowing these or any other toxins to be introduced into our temple without our personal consent – period. Below is a more detailed description of what is prohibited into our temples. This is an example of our publicly-declared religious right to ingest whatever we feel necessary to maintain our personal health and wellbeing.

Here is the reverse of the I.D. membership card of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing:



If any of the Genesis II Church members have their religious rights violated by any governmental or private organization, the Genesis II Church will vigorously announce each and every instance of abuse to the world. We are also building a worldwide support group of local Bishops, Health Ministers and Members to come to the aid of any one of our members experiencing any abuse of our religious rights.


Archbishop Mark S. Grenon

Learn how to take care of your own health through self-care. Embrace the God-given abilities you have and study how to rid yourself of “dis-ease.” We have developed the Genesis II Church Sacramental Protocols training course to help everyone learn how to restore health from most any dis-ease and then maintain good health. We are receiving tremendous feedback from many people worldwide, telling us of their success. We have documented their testimonies here:

The Genesis II Church online video course was designed to not only train the student in the Genesis II sacraments and protocols, but to make the student a teacher. The course comes with a workbook keyed to separate videos that cover 50 different topics. There is an exam with 20 practical situations to test your knowledge. This all helps you learn to be proficient with the information so that you can help others.

We have also included a presentation to aid you in teaching the course yourself. There are other topics we cover, such as establishing a Genesis II Church Chapter, reasons why you may not be having success with MMS, etc. A one-year membership and identification card are included with the Health Minister course. Each Health Minister is awarded at completion of the course:

  • • Health Minister Course Completion Certificate
    • Membership Certificate
    • Health Minister Certificate
    • Genesis II Church ID Card


17 18

  • • After graduation, and upon request, a Health Minister can receive an Authorization to open a Genesis II Church Chapter as well as the Public Announcement.

After treating two people with video testimonies, a Health Minister can become a certified Bishop, and receive a new Bishop ID card.

If you diligently study, you will be able to “restore health” from 95% of the world's diseases.

Seeing that free health care is neither free, and definitely NOT healthy, why not take control of your own health FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE and save a lot of money doing it? The best part is you will see your health and your energy level restored and enjoy a healthy lifestyle while not being enslaved to a system that has as its goal profit and maintaining sickness!

NOTE: I mentioned that one of the causes of the dis-ease of the body is a Spiritual one. 

SPIRITUAL TOXICITY can cause the body to be diseased! This book was written to only those who are seeking truth physically for health reasons. You have to “take control” of your own health or we can’t help you, BUT we certainly want to help you. The same goes for Spiritual health. If you are NOT seeking the Lord, He can’t help you either BUT certainly wants to help you!


NOTE: The following is my testimony and NOT a prerequisite to membership in the G2 Church or even for us to help you. We mean what we say about ALL welcome to come and be helped to “restore health” and be involved in changing this world to “a world without dis-ease”.

I always believed if I had the CURE for cancer I would tell the world! I am telling the world and what would you think of me if I didn’t? What would you think of me if I knew the CURE for man’s spiritual cancer that kills their soul and spirit for eternity and didn’t tell you what would you think of me? Now, you might not believe it but at least I told you, right?



Seek Him and You Shall Find Him

And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off forever.” 1 Chronicles 28:9

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us.” Acts 17:27

Note: ONLY for seekers. I am a Bible Believer because the Word of God changed me!

I have literally passed out 1,000’s of these. The TRUTH I found that brought my to the Lord! And now I am free!


Recommended reading:

  • The King James Bible
  • ALL other recommended books have links in this book.

May the Lord bless all who have read this book with health – Physically, Mentally and Spiritually!

Jim Humble and Tiger

This breakthrough can save your life, or the life of a loved one. In 1996, while on a gold mining expedition in South America, I discovered that chlorine dioxide quickly cured malaria. Since that time, it has proven to restore partial or full health to hundreds of thousands of people suffering from a wide range of disease, including cancer, diabetes, hepatitis A, B, C, Lyme disease, MRSA, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, HIV/AIDS, malaria, autism, infections of all kinds, arthritis, high cholesterol, acid reflux, kidney or liver diseases, aches and pains, allergies, urinary tract infections, digestive problems, high blood pressure, obesity, parasites, tumors and cysts, depression, sinus problems, eye disease, ear infections, dengue fever, skin problems, dental issues, problems with prostate (high PSA), erectile dysfunction and the list goes on. This is by far not a comprehensive list. I know it sounds too good to be true, but according to feedback I have received over the last 18 years, I think it’s safe to say MMS is able to overcome most diseases known to mankind.

Go back up MMS Health Recovery Guidebook (2016)

Introducing the MMS Health Recovery Guidebook, including my new Health Recovery Plan (HRP), available for download. Discover the latest up-to-date information on my MMS technology, significant completely new data, and improvements that myself and others have determined through on-going use of MMS around the globe.

Over 50 updated tried and proven protocols are outlined, including some key tips and secrets for all those who wish to recover their health from most illness and disease and/or learn about prevention and longevity!

The health recovery procedures given in this book are the result of 20 years of teaching people how to use MMS. Scores of people worldwide have used and applied the principles outlined in my first books, or taught in seminars. As a result, over the years I have received a great deal of feedback, much of which has contributed to this book and to the development of my new Health Recovery Plan.

Unfortunately there is much misinformation floating around regarding MMS, and this too, has compelled me to write this book. I have written this guidebook to help you learn the fundamentals of the Master Mineral Solution (MMS) in a clear and concise manner. This book is chock full of a number of protocols that when followed properly, help restore people’s health. Our Key Protocols go together with a number of Supporting Protocols to make up the Health Recovery Plan. In this book you’ll learn about the overall sequence or strategy for this plan.

If you have a serious health issue of one kind or another from which you need to recover—this book is for you. Likewise, if your health seems to be “OK” but you would like to nevertheless achieve optimum health, this book is also for you. Whatever category you fit in—a basic ongoing routine with MMS can help you (and/or your loved ones and pets/animals) get healthy, keep you healthy, and help you maintain a good quality of life! The key is to use MMS properly—this book will show you how.

Go back up The Master Mineral Solution of the 3rd Millennium (2011)

This is my second book on MMS. It includes more past history about the continuing story of MMS. You’ll learn about the basics of MMS, including the chemistry of it and how and why it works. Also included are instructions for several ways how you can make your own MMS.

The Master Mineral Solution of the Third Millennium is essential to those who want to learn the chemical and technical foundation of how MMS works. A chemical explanation for laymen and scientists alike is included. Learn about oxidizers, and how oxidation destroys pathogens. This is a must have reference book for those who want to delve deeper into understanding how MMS works. This book includes some of the basic original MMS protocols, however, if you are in need of health recovery today, I suggest you order my latest book, the MMS Health Recovery Guidebook for the updated protocols and information on overcoming most diseases of mankind.

If you are interested in the story of MMS there are three chapters in this book telling the continuing story of MMS in this world. Should you want the full story you will need to also buy my first book, The Miracle Mineral Solution of the 21st Century. It is estimated that 20,000,000 people had used MMS by the year 2008. Hundreds of thousands of lives have been saved and the suffering of thousands has been overcome.

Go back up Secrets of Enlightenment (2012)

This book gives simple answers to most of the questions people ask, such as: Where did I come from? Why am I here? Why don’t I remember my existence before this life? What is my purpose in life? Etc.

This book has been 60 years in the writing and compilation (this lifetime). It is unique and quite different than most books about enlightenment.  I believe that you learn about spirituality and life by living life and taking part in the game of life, not by being tucked away in a cloistered setting. You may not believe in past lives, but in case you do, I believe I have received much of the information about life given in this book from past lives. This book gives simple answers to most of the questions people ask, such as: Where did I come from? Why am I here? Why don’t I remember my existence before this life? What is my purpose in life? Etc.

Secrets of Enlightenment points out that life is a game and that you should play it to the hilt. In these pages you’ll discover secrets, or what I call an understanding of life, that is not found in any other book on Earth and if that is not so, I will be happy to refund your money at any time.
