  1. Arsenic in rice is unsafe

    FDA wrong about arsenic in rice

    There is no safe level of arsenic. None.

    That might sound obvious, but arsenic in rice and water has been turning up with alarming frequency -- and the FDA is too afraid to warn you about it. If there's any industry they fear almost as much as the drug industry, it's the food industry.

    Yes, the FDA is afraid of both the "F" and the "D" in its own name.

    So instead of telling you the truth about arsenic -- that you should avoid it completely -- the agency actually went ahead and issued a statement on arsenic in rice so absurd it would be laughable... if it weren't so dangerous.

    The agency claims the high arsenic levels detected in rice -- high levels confirmed by its own tests -- are nothing to worry about. It won't kill you on the spot, so it's OK to keep eating rice.

    But the agency also claims it doesn't know what the long-term effects of all that arsenic exposure could mean for your health -- and that's just plain false.

    We know plenty.

    We know that the arsenic in rice and other products can accumulate in the body, and when it does it can damage your immune system and increase your risk of cancer -- especially cancers of the bladder, lung and skin.

    We know arsenic can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes and more.

    And we know that arsenic can build up in the brain and cause dementia or dementia-like symptoms.

    If rice were your only source of exposure, eating it regularly would still be enough to cause serious long-term damage in my opinion.

    But it's not -- because arsenic is turning up in everything from apple juice to tap water. And as I told you last year, it's even intentionally fed to chickens so their meat looks nice and pink in the supermarket.

    The feds won't tell you any of this because they're too busy protecting the corporate giants that produce and sell chicken, rice, apple juice and more.

    But I'm here to protect just one person: You.

    So take my word for it and limit your exposure to arsenic in rice and all other sources. And while you're at it, get tested for arsenic and other metals if you haven't done so already.

    A holistic doctor can run those tests and work with you on a detox program if you've been exposed (and, odds are, you have been exposed). And if you're in Southern California, I can help. Contact my clinic to make an appointment.

  2. New attack on chelation is a threat to your mental health

    Exposure to toxic metals is often behind some of today's most common chronic conditions -- and there's one safe, proven, and effective way to rid the body of those metals.

    So naturally, it's coming under attack.

    In a stunning display of ignorance, the American College of Medical Toxicology is urging doctors to reject time-tested chelation therapy. And at a recent conference hosted by the CDC, the group actually called on its members to report doctors who use it.

    I'm not sure what they're supposed to report, since chelation isn't illegal. In fact, it's the FDA-approved treatment for the removal of heavy metals such as lead from the body.

    The fact that they want doctors to start tattling on other doctors who use this perfectly legal treatment is bad enough. But what makes this so much worse is the fact that the Federation of State Medical Boards sent representatives to the conference, according to a report from the Alliance for Natural Health.

    That's a sign that other states could soon follow Kentucky's lead and put a backdoor ban on chelation therapy by forbidding doctors from discussing it with their patients.

    In Kentucky, simply talking about this legal treatment can get your license yanked -- so if you're a patient who lives in that state and actually needs chelation, be prepared to drive a long way (or move).

    What's amazing about all this is that there isn't a single doctor -- mainstream or alternative -- who will claim mercury, lead, arsenic, and more belong in the body.

    There's total agreement that they're poisons.

    The disagreement comes over what they do at what levels. The mainstream takes an all-or-nothing approach here, claiming that very high levels of metals are toxic and deadly and should be removed through chelation.

    But lower levels -- even levels just below that "poison" threshold -- are perfectly safe and require nothing at all.

    That's what they say, anyway. But science (and common sense) tell us otherwise: A toxin dangerous enough to kill you at high levels could hurt you at lower ones, and studies have implicated even low levels of these metals in everything from osteoarthritis to heart disease to autism. And clinical experience tells me that everyone's genetic ability to detoxify these metals varies greatly.

    If you're battling a chronic illness that your own physician hasn't been able to solve, visit a holistic doctor who can test your levels of these metals.

    You might be surprised by the results -- and how quickly you can be cured. But you'd better hurry... this cure might not be around much longer.

  3. You're slowly being poisoned

    Want a shock? Go get tested for heavy metals. Your jaw will drop when you see the results.
