Food Club Members Fight Back: Sue State for Food Rights

For years now, farmers have borne the brunt of government efforts to interfere with food rights and consumer access to the foods of their choice.

That may be about to change, as consumers launch actions to take the burden of government harassment off farmers’ backs.

Study: Essential Oil of Lemon Effective Against #Candida Yeast Infections

A study published in the journal Mycopathologia showed that the essential oil of lemon can be used as a very effective natural remedy against candidiasis caused by C. albicans.

Candida albicans is a yeast (or fungus) that normally inhabits our digestive system. In healthy people, Candida does little harm because it’s kept in check by beneficial microorganisms or probiotics.

The study showed that the antifungal potential of lemon essential oils against Candida yeast strains was related to the high content of monoterpenoids and the type of Candida strains. The authors concluded: "Our study characterizes lemon essential oils, which could be used as very effective natural remedies against candidiasis caused by C. albicans."

Coconut Oil Effective in Treating #Aluminum Phosphide Poisoning

A new study published in the Indian Journal of Critical Care Medicine shows coconut oil can be an effective "supportive measure" in treating aluminum phosphide poisoning.

The authors of the study, from the Department of Critical Care Medicine and Pulmonology at the Metro Heart Institute in Haryana, India, treated 7 cases of ALP poisoning with severe hemodynamic effects. The patients were treated with supportive measures including gastric lavage with diluted potassium permanganate, coconut oil and sodium-bicarbonate.

Four out of 7 patients survived with these "supportive measures," and all four patients who were given coconut oil survived.

Monsanto Merger with Bayer: 3 Companies Will Soon Control 60% of World’s Seed Supply

A $66 billion buyout by the German pharmaceutical giant Bayer could make it harder for consumers to avoid products from the biotech behemoth.

The number of companies controlling our food supply is about to shrink even further now that Bayer has bought Monsanto for $66 billion in cash, creating the world’s largest seed and pesticide company. The new megacorporation will control 25% of the world’s seeds and pesticides.

Along with two other proposed biotech mergers, three companies will soon control the lion’s share of the world’s agricultural services, from seed production, to the herbicide and pesticide sprays that go on them, to the biotechnology used to produce them all. Monsanto/Bayer, Dow/DuPont, and Syngenta/ChemChina will sell 59% of the world’s seeds and 64% of the world pesticides.

Tropical Traditions Coconut Oils and Coconut Products Now All Glyphosate-tested

Tropical Traditions has finished testing all of their coconut oils and coconut products for the presence of the herbicide glyphosate. They now have a system in place to test each batch of coconut oil or coconut products exported from the Philippines for the presence of glyphosate.

The Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil also carries the "Traditionally Produced" label, since this coconut oil is not mass produced by machine. It is a traditionally produced coconut oil made by hand in small batches, much the same way people in the Philippines have produced it for thousands of years.

Tropical Traditions was the first company to import virgin coconut oil from the Philippines in 2002, and it remains one of the only premium coconut oils in the United States that is still produced using traditional methods, rather than being mass-produced by machine.

Study: Cholesterol-lowering Statin Drugs Worsen Coronary Calcium Tests

Coronary artery calcification has been found to be associated with cardiovascular events. In other words, there are more cardiovascular events when there is a higher coronary artery calcification score. The coronary calcium score can be measured with a coronary CT scan or a coronary intravascular ultrasound scan. Coronary scans are frequently ordered by cardiologists and primary care physicians. If the coronary calcium score on the CT is elevated, the doctor is most likely to prescribe a statin medication. You might think that a statin medication, if it was effective at treating and preventing heart disease, would be shown to decrease coronary calcium burden. Well, you would think wrong.


Statin drugs are the most profitable drugs in the history of Big Pharma. Presently, over 28% of all U.S. adults take a statin drug. Statins are prescribed by doctors to treat high cholesterol levels and heart disease. Furthermore, the Powers-That-Be proclaim that statins will prevent a healthy person from getting heart disease.

Remember, just because the Powers-That-Be continue to make the above statements does not make them true.

Cleaning Copper Pots with Coconut Oil

Copper instantly responds to changes in temperature and this thermal conductivity ensures an even distribution of heat, so everything gets cooked consistently and evenly. The downside is that copper requires more TLC than standard stainless steel. This can be easily prevented by regularly using my very own copper cleaner.

Statin Drug Scandal: Cholesterol-lowering Drug Researchers Start Backtracking

The cholesterol-lowering statin drug empire continues to crumble. On February 15, 2015, the Sunday Express in the UK published a headline story stating that Oxford professor Dr. Rory Collins, whose research had been used to support putting millions of patients on statin drugs, was reassessing the data behind those studies for possible drug side effects.

According to the Express: "Although the original research looked at the effect of statins on the heart and considered cancer risks it did not examine other side effects."

This announcement by Dr. Collins is stunning, to say the least, and points to a massive cover-up and scandal related to statin drugs.

Coconut Oil: Research on the health benefits of coconut oil.
Introduction
Coconut Health brings you the top research and news regarding the health benefits of coconut oil. Coconut Health is brought to you by Brian and Marianita Shilhavy. Unlike many people who write about  coconut oil by simply reading about it, Marianita Shilhavy actually grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines and in a culture that consumed significant amounts of coconut fat in their diet. She later went on to earn her degree in nutrition and worked as a nutritionist in the Philippines. Brian Shilhavy also lived in the Philippines for several years with Marianita and their 3 children observing firsthand the differences between the diet and health of the younger generation and those of Marianita’s parents’ generation still consuming a traditional diet. This led to years of studying Philippine nutrition and dietary patterns first hand while living in a rural farming community in the Philippines. They are authors of the best-selling book: Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives and how it can change yours! 

CoconutOil.com is the Internet's oldest and most up-to-date resource on the health benefits of coconut oil, and CoconutDiet.com contains the Coconut Diet forums in archive, with the historical records of the Coconut Oil Revolution, containing thousands of coconut oil users' discussions starting in the year 2000.
