Polyphenolics from various extracts/fractions of red onion (Allium cepa) peel with potent antioxidant and antimutagenic activities
Understanding Why Alkalinity Can Be Unhealthy
If you took high school or college chemistry, you may remember that pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 with 7 for neutral solutions [white, middle of scale] with:
- Lower numbers representing increased acidity [red zone, top of scale at right]
- Higher numbers representing increased alkalinity and [blue zone, bottom of scale at right]
In an overly alkaline environment [due to aliens closeby in Earth’s 4th dimension — aliens whose energy is highly alkaline], there is a need for the following strategies:
- Emphasize acid-forming foods
- Use white vinegar in bath water and washing machine [2 – to 9 cups] depending on the severity of the alkaline energy.
- Use soaps that have a neutral pH [e.g. glycerin soap] or contain mild acid that help preserve the skin’s acid mantle [e.g. goat milk soap]. Note: Miracle II is a pH neutral soap that is available through mail-order distributors and some retail stores.
Acids and alkalines (also known as bases) neutralize each other forming salt and water. By emphasizing acids in your diet and on your skin, you will neutralize the extreme alkaline energy that is all around us [due to the presence of aliens]. I will explain more details about these concepts later in this article.
Why Does Alkalinity Cause Aging? The key to why alkalinity causes aging is in the definition of acids and bases that was developed by a scientist named Svante August Arrhenius (1859 – 1927): –An acid is a substance that increases the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+), which are carried as hydronium ions (H3O+) when dissolved in water, while bases are substance that increase the concentration of hydroxide ions (OH-). –Hydrogen ions are involved in growth (a daytime function). They’re also needed in the body to convert adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP has been called the “energy currency” of the cell. —The illustration Below shows a high concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) that are needed for growth and the production of energy used in the human body. See: “Selecting Foods That Provide Hydrogen Ions.” A substance with a high concentration of hydrogen ions would be extremely acid showing little or no hydroxide ions.–In contrast, the illustration at right shows a high concentration of hydroxide ions that are present in alkaline substances. Hydroxide ions will slow growth and thwart metabolic processes in the body because they gobble hydrogen ions to form salt and water [setting up a condition for accelerated aging].–A substance with a high concentration of hydroxide ions would be extremely alkaline showing little or no hydrogen ions.
Food Lies When you read what foods provide hydrogen ions for growth and energy production, you’ll say: —Hey, wait a minute, is there an extermination agenda? It turns out, most of the health advice we’re given is false. Examples include:
- [#1] Alkaline-forming foods are healthy [fruits and vegetables] and acid-forming foods are harmful.
The truth: Alkaline-forming foods [and energy] cause accelerated aging and promote the growth of parasites that cause disease [Note: If energy was more normal, fruits and vegetables would provide a balance].
- [#2] Fat is bad and low- fat or no-fat is healthy [Note: It has become almost impossible to find whole milk products in food stores and children are being fed low-fat dairy in schools.
The truth: Half of every cell wall is made of saturated fat, the fat that we’re told not to eat. With decreased energy and not enough fat to make new cells, you can imagine the effect these two combined factors have on aging. Children need fat for brain development. In addition, fat is required to make hormones. Infertility rates are very high.
These ideas are so deeply embedded, they’re hard to dislodge. Aren’t all the sources of information providing the same information? That’s right — they are.
Selecting Foods That Provide Hydrogen Ions Selecting foods that provide hydrogen ions can be tricky because the key is to select foods leave minerals behind that the body can use to make acids.
Some foods, such as lemons, seem to contain an acid (citric acid), yet they do not leave the minerals behind to make acids.–To correct mistakes that you may be making — will require memorization. I recommend Herman Aihara’s book that is shown in the upper left corner of this page [some authors make mistakes concerning acid- forming and alkaline forming]. –Look closely at the following chart and notice what foods we’re told to eat and not eat:
Acid-forming Minerals Alkaline-forming Minerals Chloride (makes hydrochloric acid) Magnesium (makes magnesium hydroxide) Phosphorus (makes phosphoric acid) Calcium (makes calcium hydroxide) Sulfur (makes sulfuric acid) Potassium (makes potassium hydroxide) Acid-forming Foods Alkaline-forming Foods Apple Cider Vinegar (strong) Citrus Fruit (strong) Peanut Butter (strong) Green Vegetables (strong) Chocolate (strong) Seaweed (strong) Meat (medium) Green Tea (strong) Bread (medium) Sea Salt (medium) Eggs (medium) Coffee (medium) Black tea (medium) Wine (medium) Milk and Cheese (Weak) Ginger (Medium)
Dr. Carey Reams: Parasites Thrive in Alkalinity Dr. Carey Reams [1904-1985], a medical doctor who also had a career as a soil scientist, has a devoted following in modern agricultural circles that could be described as alternative. Just as there are alternative medical doctors who strive to heal the body without drugs, there are farmers who prefer to use natural methods instead of chemicals.–In the area of human health, Reams is most known for an ionization theory that consists of seven mathematical equations that provide a framework for balancing the body’s chemistry. The equations are referred to as Reams Biological Theory of Ionization [RBTI] and pH was an important aspect of Reams’ work.—During his lifetime, Reams taught workshops, but was too busy avoiding the medical establishment to write his own books. Fortunately, an oral surgeon named Dr. Alexander Beddoe, has written several books about Reams’ work. –Dr. Beddoe’s RBTI text book lists the following health conditions that are due to alkalinity:
Acne Arthritis Slow digestion Breakdown of discs in the back Body odor Deminerialization of bones Dental decay
Ear deterioration Fever Gall stonesHeart stress Hot flashes Lower GI gas Mental confusion Moody/depression Muscle soreness Increase in skin pigmentation
If alkalinity reflects an abundance of hydroxide ions, this may lead to a buildup of excess water in the body. When a hydroxide ion encounters a hydrogen ion [a base meeting an acid], there is a neutralization reaction that forms salt and water. If you add the popular health advice to eat alkaline-forming foods [fruits and vegetables], and the fact that hydrogen ions [from acid-forming foods] are required for metabolism-driving energy, I believe that acid-base chemistry is the reason that many businesses are selling very large products.
Hydrochloric Acid Kills Parasite Eggs Disease-causing parasites are the most serious result of the alkalinity problem. The solution is to make the body inhospitable to parasites using food chemistry and herbs.—Chloride, the mineral that’s needed to make hydrochloric acid, provides an example of why we need to be careful when selecting the foods that we eat. You’ll notice that chloride is a mineral that is needed to make hydrochloric acid [that kills parasite eggs in the stomach]. This mineral is left behind by acid-forming foods [that we’re told not to eat]. –Parasites that cause disease lay eggs that are very small. If the eggs are present in food and if we have enough hydrochloric acid, the eggs will not mature and cause health problems.—Alkaline-forming foods create an environment in the body that is very healthy for parasites.—To neutralize alkaline energy, I drink apple cider vinegar in ice water, drink mostly black tea and I eat a lot of peanut butter. Peanut butter is also rich in nutrition [26 minerals, 14 vitamins and monounsaturated fat that’s used for energy and converted to saturated fat as needed].
Killing Large Parasites Dr. Hulda Clark [1928-2009], who wrote The Cure and Prevention of All Diseases, discovered herbs that kill large parasites. —Because there are no lab tests for large parasites that cause serious diseases such as cancer and heart disease, most medical doctors are clueless about the connection between parasites and disease.–Hulda was a meticulous researcher and she made a great contribution. The following list of herbs form the foundation of a group of herbs that Hulda wrote about for fifteen years. See: Antiparasite Tea Recipe
Herb Action Cloves Hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach kills parasite eggs. If stomach acid is low, the eggs may survive. Cloves are known to kill:
• Parasite eggs • Pseudomonas aeruginosa • Staphylococcus • Streptococcus • Malaria • Tuberculosis • Cholera • Scabies • Candida • Shigella
Black Walnut [Green] Hull Tincture Kills adult parasites and developmental stages. This tincture contains organic iodine that is required by every cell in the body. The green hull around the nut of the black walnut has antiparasitic properties. Wormwood (Artemesia absinthium) Wormwood works to anesthetize worms so they detach from body tissues. It is most effective against roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and pinworms. Thyme Thyme kills hook-worms, roundworms, threadworms and skin parasites. Thyme also destroys Cryptococcus neoformans, Aspergillus, Saprolegnia, Salmonella typhimurium, Staphylococcus aureas, and Escherichia coli.
Antiparasite Tea Recipe Hulda’s basic herbs are Cloves, Black Walnut Hull Tincture, and Wormwood. I make tea using the following recipe [frequently].
2-3 Cups of Water 2-3 Tea Bags Black Tea [e.g. Earl Grey] 48 Drops of Black Walnut Hull Tincture 12 Drops of Wormwood Tincture 1/4 teaspoon of Ground Cloves (approximately) 2-3 Sprigs of Fresh Thyme
- Use Distilled or Reverse Osmosis If you have a weak immune system, you may want to purchase Hulda’s book and learn how to sterilize food — with a freezer or sound waves. Chest freezers that can be set to -20 degrees kill parasites and microorganisms in 24 hours. — I use sound waves generated by a jewelry cleaner that Hulda renamed a “sonicator.” The Haier Jewelry Cleaner has a 25 oz. water tank (HDPE bottles of herbs are submerged to apply sound waves). Jewelry cleaners kill bugs in 20 minutes [$29.99 at Amazon.com].
A jewelry cleaner tank can accomodate two Nalgene, four-ounce, wide-mouth HDPE bottles containing loose herbs [available at camping stores such as REA or Eastern Mountain Sports].
Bt Toxin Kills Human Kidney Cells
Cry1Ab biopesticide kills human cells at low doses as does Roundup herbicide Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji
A new study shows that low doses of Bt biopesticide CryA1b as well as the glyphosate herbicide, Roundup, kill human kidney cells. The Bt biopesticide conferring insect resistance and the glyphosate tolerance trait tied to the use of glyphosate herbicides account for almost all the GM crops grown worldwide. Bt crops already constitute 39 % of globally cultivated genetically modified (GM) crops, yet this is the first study that provides evidence on the toxicity of Bt protein in human cells. This work comes at a time when the French environment and agricultural ministers are seeking an EU-wide ban of Monsanto’s MON810 Bt corn variety that is already outlawed in Hungary, Austria, Germany, Greece, and Luxembourg[U1] . The EU commission approved this crop in 2009, concluding that it “is as safe as its conventional counterpart with respect to potential effects on human and animal health”. In response to their publication the research team raised questions about the safety assessment procedure stating that their findings were a “surprising outcome and this risk was somehow overlooked” in past assessments of such crops. . — The research team led by Gilles-Eric Séralini at the University of Caen, France, is already well-known for their investigations on the endocrine disrupting effects of glyphosate herbicides (see  Glyphosate Kills Rat Testis Cells[U2] , SiS 54).The researchers tested the effects of Cry1Ab and Cry1Ac proteins as well as their combined effects with the herbicide Roundup on the human kidney cell line HEK293 . Humans are exposed to hundreds of chemicals in a day, and their combined effects need to be understood. This is particularly important when considering the new generation of ‘stacked’ genetically modified (GM) crops now on the market, which carry multiple resistance genes for Bt toxins and glyphosate tolerance together. [U3] ———Experiments were performed to assess both cell death and cell membrane integrity, as the pesticidal activity of Bt toxins results from creating pores in the membrane of cells in the insect gut. Cell death was measured using three parameters: 1) mitochondrial succinate dehydrogenase enzyme activity as a general cell death marker, 2) activity of the membrane-bound enzyme adenylate kinase (AK) to assess membrane integrity as a marker of necrotic cell death and 3) caspase 3/7 activity, as a marker of apoptosis (programmed cell death). They found that Cry1Ab caused cell death at concentrations of 100 parts per million (ppm), according to mitochondrial succinate dehydrogenase activity. The membrane-bound enzyme adenylate kinase (AK) goes up in activity when the membrane disintegrates and releases the enzyme into the culture medium. Cry1Ab at 100 ppm induced a 2-fold increase in AK activity. No effects were seen with Cry1Ac.
Antidiabetic potentials of Momordica charantia: multiple mechanisms behind the effects.
J Med Food. 2012 Feb;15(2):101-7–Authors: Chaturvedi P
Abstract Momordica charantia fruits are used as a vegetable in many countries. From time immemorial, it has also been used for management of diabetes in the Ayurvedic and Chinese systems of medicine. Information regarding the standardization of this vegetable for its usage as an antidiabetic drug is scanty. There are many reports on its effects on glucose and lipid levels in diabetic animals and some in clinical trials. Reports regarding its mechanism of action are limited. So in the present review all the information is considered to produce some concrete findings on the mechanism behind its hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects. Studies have shown that M. charantia repairs damaged β-cells, increases insulin levels, and also enhance the sensitivity of insulin. It inhibits the absorption of glucose by inhibiting glucosidase and also suppresses the activity of disaccharidases in the intestine. It stimulates the synthesis and release of thyroid hormones and adiponectin and enhances the activity of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Effects of M. charantia like transport of glucose in the cells, transport of fatty acids in the mitochondria, modulation of insulin secretion, and elevation of levels of uncoupling proteins in adipose and skeletal muscles are similar to those of AMPK and thyroxine. Therefore it is proposed that effects of M. charantia on carbohydrate and fat metabolism are through thyroxine and AMPK.—PMID: 22191631 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE][U4]
Green Tea Compound for Radioprotection
Green tea polyphenol antioxidant protects against bystander effects of low dose ionizing radiation that damage cells and cause numerous diseases including cancer. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho–The recent discovery of bystander effects from low levels of ionizing radiation has thrown risk assessment and radioprotection into disarray  (Bystander Effects Multiply Dose and Harm from Ionizing Radiation, SiS 55). However, it has also led to the discovery of potential mitigating measures against exposure to radioactivity, especially from nuclear accidents like Chernobyl (and Fukushima), the devastation health impacts of which are still surfacing 25 years later  (Chernobyl Deaths Top a Million Based on Real Evidence. SiS 55). ——Ionizing radiation has been known to produce free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), predominantly by ionizing water, the most abundant molecules in tissues and cells (see  for an explanation of ROS). ROS are responsible for oxidative damage to DNA, proteins, and lipids, initiating cell death, genomic instability and other consequences of radiation, both in cells that have been directly targeted, and in bystander cells that have not been irradiated . There is evidence that various antioxidants can protect cells against bystander radiation damages, and new findings published online in Mutation Research appear particularly promising. —-shu Tiku and Benila Richi at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi and Roasaheb Kale at Central University of Gujarat in India may have found the ideal antioxidant for radioprotectopm .
Non-toxic compound needed for radioprotection—–One main problem in radioprotection is to find compounds that are non-toxic or minimally so, and natural compounds fit the bill in being both non-toxic and easily available. Green tea is a rich source of polyphenols with strong antioxidant activities. Green tea extracts and its polyphenols have been shown to possess many health benfits attributed to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (see [4, 5] Green Tea, The Elixir of Life? and Green Tea Against Cancers, SiS 33). Most of the health benefits of green tea have been credited to the major polyphenol EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) which constitutes 55 – 70 % of total polyphenols in green tea extract. Its antioxidant potential is believed to be far greater than vitamin E and vitamin C, the two main antioxidants among vitamins . The team exposed both pBR322 plasmid DNA as well as spleen cells from mice to g-radiation at different concentrations of EGCG. Preliminary experiments found that EGCG concentrations above 125 mM were toxic to the cells, so the highest concentration used was restricted to 100 mM. The effects of quercetin – another polyphenol found in fruits, vegetables, leaves and grains – and vitamin C were also investigated. The plasmid DNA and cells were incubated for 2 hours with EGCG at different concentrations or quercetin and vitamin C, both at 100 mM, before being irradiated. Afterwards, the plasmid and cells were assessed for DNA damage, and the cells for viability, lipid peroxidation, membrane fluidity, and for activities of enzymes and cofactors involved in detoxification and scavenging of ROS. Tea compound protects against DNA breaks and cell death–The intact plasmid is supercoiled in a compact form, while the cut plasmid is circular, and the two forms can be clearly distinguished and quantified by electrophoresis. The control (unexposed) sample is about 85% supercoiled. EGCG was found to protect plasmid DNA against breaks at high (50 Gy) or low (3 Gy) dose radiation: >82.5 % protection even at the lowest concentration of EGCG tested (10 mM) and complete 100 % protection at 50 mM. EGCG was better at protection against DNA breaks than quercetin or vitamin C at the same concentration of 100 mM. The viability of cells was determined with a vital dye that depends on active mitochondria. At 3 to 7 Gy of g-irradiation, cell viability was significantly decreased, and at the highest dose, to 53 % of unexposed controls; but pre-incubation with EGCG protected the cells and restored viability in a concentration dependent manner, at 100 mM, viability was restored to >96 % of control. Single cell comet assay was used to determine the extent of DNA degradation in the cells. In this assay, cells are trapped in agar gel on a microscope slide, lysed to expose their DNA for electrophoresis, and stained with a fluorescent dye. Cells with intact DNA will appear as a small compact bright spot, while cells with degraded DNA will appear as a diffuse spot with a tail, like a comet, hence the name of the assay. The bigger the tail, the greater is the extent of degradation, which can be quantified with computer software under a fluorescent microscope. Exposing the cells to 3 Gy led to substantial DNA degradation, which was reduced in a concentration dependent manner by EGCG. Quercetin and vitamin C -also protected the cells against DNA damage, though not as effectively as EGCG.
2 people dead after swarms of venomous spiders invade Indian town
( Playing with genetics- )–Published June 03, 2012
SADIYA, India – A town in India has suddenly been overrun by swarms of venomous spiders, leaving two people dead after being bitten.–It may sound like a B-grade horror movie, but residents of the town of Sadiya, in Assam state, say that on the evening of May 8 as they were celebrating a Hindu festival swarms of spiders suddenly appeared and attacked them, The Times of India reported.—Over the next few days two people — a man, Purnakanta Buragohain, and an unnamed school boy — died after being bitten by the spiders. Scores more turned up at the town’s hospital with spider bites.–Local resident Jintu Gogoi spent a day in the hospital complaining of excruciating pain and nausea after being bitten. He said weeks later his finger was still blackened and swollen.—District authorities are also panicking — and they are considering spraying the town with the insecticide DDT.—Locals say the most terrifying aspect is that spiders appear in swarms and their behavior is highly aggressive.[U5] –“It leaps at anything that comes close. Some of the victims claimed the spider latched on to them after biting. If that is so, it needs to be dealt with carefully. The chelicerae and fangs of this critter are quite powerful,” head of the department of life sciences at Dibrugarh University Dr. L.R. Saikia said.–Teams of Indian arachnid experts have flocked to the town, hoping to identify the species, but so far they have drawn a blank.[U6] —They say it could be a tarantula, a black wishbone or even a funnel-web spider — or it could be a whole new species.—One thing they agree on is that it is not native to the area as there is no record of venomous spiders in Assam. The black wishbone and funnel-web are native to Australia. Researchers are also still running tests to find out the toxicity of the spiders’ venom.–Dr. Anil Phatowali, superintendent of the town’s hospital, said they had not administered antivenin as they could not be certain the spider was venomous at all.—He also pointed out other factors may have contributed to the two reported fatalities.–“All the bite patients first went to witch doctors, who cut open their wounds with razors, drained out blood and burnt it. That could have also made them sick,” Phatowali said.
Polyphenolics from various extracts/fractions of red onion (Allium cepa) peel with potent antioxidant and antimutagenic activities.
Nutraceutical Chemistry, National Botanical Research Institute, Lucknow 226 001, India.
In order to determine antioxidant activity, the five extracts/fractions of red onion peel were studied for their total content of phenolics (TPC), flavonoids (TFC), antioxidant activity (AOA), free radical scavenging activity (FRSA), assayed by DPPH radical in the terms of anti-radical power (ARP) and reducing power (RP), expressed as ascorbic acid equivalents (ASE)/ml. High TPC (384.7 +/- 5.0 mg GAE/g), TFC (165.2+/- 3.2 mg QE/g), AOA (97.4 +/- 7.6%), ARP (75.3 +/-4.5) and RP (1.6 +/-0.3 ASE/ml) were found for the ethyl acetate (EA) fraction. EA fraction had markedly higher antioxidant capacity than butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) in preventive or scavenging capacities against FeCl3-induced lipid peroxidation, protein fragmentation, hydroxyl (site-specific and non-site-specific), superoxide anion and nitric oxide radicals. EA fraction also showed dose dependent antimutagenic activity by following the inhibition of tobacco-induced mutagenicity in Salmonella typhimurium strains (TA102) and hydroxyl radical-induced nicking in plasmid pUC18 DNA. HPLC and MS/MS analysis showed the presence of ferulic, gallic, protocatechuic acids, quercetin and kaempferol. The large amount of polyphenols contained in EA fraction may cause its strong antioxidant and antimutagenic properties. This information shows that EA fraction of red onion peel can be used as natural antioxidant in nutraceutical preparations.
