Foster Boy Risks Retaliation: Speaks Out Regarding Abuse and State Kidnapping in #Alabama

Trevar Hotaling is 18 years old and has allegedly been in the Alabama foster care system, under the control of Alabama DHR (Department of Human Resources) in Shelby County, for over two years.

Trevar posted a video to his Facebook page on July 18th regarding abuses within Alabama DHR, and the video quickly gained hundreds of viewers. He recorded it at 2:40 a.m. because he has problems sleeping at night. He uploaded it to YouTube, and then did a second video.

Trevar states that the reason he is making these videos is because there are many kids in Alabama DHR that "do not deserve to be taken from their families."

Trevar admits that he is scared to speak out, like all foster kids, and that he will probably get into trouble for posting the videos.

"It's worth it. Because if I don't speak up, who's going to speak up for these kids?"

"So hopefully somebody will find these videos that can actually help us. Somebody who has the power to stand up for the kids, for the families, for the parents that can't say nothing or do nothing to change."

"Just remember every kid is a check. Every kid is a ton of money (for the State)."

The Unrecognized Health Benefits of #VitaminB12

The B-vitamins or B-complex are commonly known as brain vitamins. They are mostly water soluble and essential, meaning the body doesn't manufacture B-vitamins and depends on outside sources for vitamin-B nourishment. Proper vitamin-B nourishment supports the brain and central nervous system.

There are eight B-vitamins. It's best to consume green leafy plant foods to obtain most B-vitamins from food sources. But vitamin B-12 is not one of them. It can be obtained from animal sources or supplements. As we grow older, metabolizing vitamin B-12 becomes more difficult.

Most of the B-complex vitamins are co-factors with cellular mitochondria ATP production. #Mitochondria are the cells' energy engines that also monitor DNA activity. It can't get much more basic than that. This article will focus on vitamin B-12, a very important undervalued B-vitamin.

Coconut Oil Offers Hope for Antibiotic-Resistant Germs

The antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties of the medium chain fatty acids/triglycerides (MCTs) found in coconut oil have been known to researchers since the 1960s. Research has shown that microorganisms that are inactivated include bacteria, yeast, fungi, and enveloped viruses.

Man Given Months to Live with Brain Tumor Rejects #Chemo for High-fat #Ketogenic Diet – Doing Well 2 Years Later

The science behind the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet has been around for years. It is a special diet originally developed at Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1920s as a cure for childhood epilepsy. A diet that is still used today, some children can become seizure free or nearly seizure free on the ketogenic diet, where drugs often fail.

In recent times, studies have been done on cancer patients using the ketogenic diet, using the theory that refined carbohydrates feed cancer cells, whereas a diet induced state of ketosis can starve cancer cells. One of the most widely used dietary oils in the ketogenic diet to induce ketosis is coconut oil.

But a diet approach to curing cancer is a direct threat to the multi-billion dollar cancer industry, which depends on no cures for future growth for its cancer products, which can only be pharmaceutical drugs approved by the FDA. So for cancer patients who want to try alternative methods to treat their cancer, they must endure ridicule, fear, and scorn by doctors in mainstream medicine.

In the story below, one young man did just that. In the face of opposition from mainstream medicine, he rejected chemotherapy for his brain tumor, and was only given a couple of months to live. He chose to implement the ketogenic diet instead, and now 2 years later he is still alive and doing well, having bypassed the dangerous side effects of chemotherapy which would have, at best, probably only extended his life a couple of months.

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.
