In a ground breaking article about soy titled “The Ploy of Soy,” Sally Fallon and Mary G Enig, Ph.D., of the Weston A. Price Foundation put the nutritional realities of soy consumption into perspective – a perspective you won’t find anywhere in the main- stream. Soy is one of the most harvested crops in the world, meaning the likelihood of soy containing GMOs is extremely high. Here are a few of the key points they make: Soybeans contain “anti-nutrients” that inhibit enzymes needed for protein digestion and amino acid uptake into the blood stream Soybeans contain hemagglutinin, a substance that promotes the clotting of red blood cells Soybean hemagglutinin and enzyme inhibitors are deactivated during the fermentation process which makes soy acceptable Enzyme inhibitors are reduced in bean curd and tofu, but not completely eliminated Soybeans are high in phytic acid; an organic acid that impedes the (Read More)
Most nutritional products that are sold to help build your immune system contain vitamin C. What you may not realize, is that if a product says you are getting 1,000 mg, you are really only absorbing approximately 19%! If you try to take more, to make up for the low absorption rate, it causes stomach distress and you eliminate the vitamin C before it gets into your bloodstream.
I want to let you know about an exciting direction we are moving at Let’s Talk Health for our entire product line. In recent weeks, Let’s Talk Health and its GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified laboratory have quietly and intentionally moved in an exciting new direction toward more organic and natural ingredients in all of our best-selling formulas starting with vegetarian approved capsules and non-GMO natural ingredients. Additionally, Our Let’s Talk Health state of the art laboratory has made significant investment in its in-house laboratory so we can test our products at multiple stages during production. We’re one of the few manufacturers that have this kind of in-house testing capability. In just one month, our laboratory performs thousands of individual tests. We test in order to meet US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for dietary supplement manufacturing. But we also go beyond these requirements to insure that you are (Read More)
An overwhelming majority of Americans believe the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a legal responsibility to require proper labeling of foods containing genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). But to this day, the FDA refuses to comply with the demands of the American people, who it is supposed to represent, or with the law, which is why your help is needed to force this rogue agency to finally step up and do the right thing.
There’s no longer any guarantee the corn you eat is actually good for you. Genetically modified corn has infiltrated many dinner tables across the nation in one form or another. GMO corn first began to be developed on a large scale two decades ago. It was introduced as a solution to make the crop able to withstand herbicides and certain varieties of insects. The corn was modified with a protein toxic to these insects and resistant herbicides used to kill off weeds. Altering corn DNA from its natural state has since opened the door to a host of medical issues. Risks of GMO corn GMO foods have been linked to a sharp increase in autoimmune disorders and allergies. A recent study from National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), for example, found that the number of children diagnosed with food allergies has risen 50 percent since 1999. During that same period, (Read More)
Most of us are not getting the vitamin C dosage we need for good health. This is because illness, trauma, stress, and injury all use up large quantities of vitamin C in animals, including us humans. But the main difference between us and other animals is that we’ve lost the ability to make our own vitamin C.
The Codex Committee in Canada and the United States set policy for food labeling. The mission and purpose of this committee is the adoption of a standard that would require the disclosure to consumers on product labels of the presence of any Genetically-Modified ingredients in that food product.
