What the MOO can do for YOU

NOTE:  HIGH FAT diets have been used to stop epilepsy in babies and adults.

Last time I was at a coffee shop, they had 1 percent, 2 percent, skim, and soy milk all out on the counter.

Notice what’s missing?

I sure did. The half-and-half was hidden behind the counter, like some kind of dirty magazine, because — let’s face it — that’s just the reputation that full-fat dairy has these days.

Well, friend, it’s time for a reputation rescue, as new research shows that you don’t want to skim the fat at all.

When it comes to milk, those fats aren’t dangerous.

They’re ESSENTIAL to your health!

Now, I’m not saying that you should glug half-and-half (although it sure is great in coffee).

But if you want some milk, get the real deal. Get real, fresh, full-fat WHOLE milk, as new research shows that it doesn’t do ANY of the horrible things that the mainstream naysayers have been mooing about.

Just the opposite: It can PROTECT your heart and CUT your health risks by at least one critical measure.

Milk can stimulate your body into cranking out HDL cholesterol, the form of cholesterol that even the mainstream calls “good,” since it helps clear all the junk out of your arteries and cuts your risk of heart attack and stroke.

The more HDL you’ve got, the lower your risk — a link so clear that Big Pharma has, of course, tried to make drugs to boost those levels.

Tried… and FAILED.

But who needs meds when you’ve got some moo?

In the new study, folk were given a tall, cool 16-ounce glass of milk a day for three weeks. Some were forced to gag on skim, while the rest got smooth and delicious whole milk.

Then, they did the whole study all over again, with everyone switching places.

It didn’t matter who got what or when. All that mattered was the whole milk: When folks drank it, their HDL levels rose.

Of course, you can hear the health nags going on and on already about all of the extra calories and fat in whole milk and how it can cause OTHER problems even if it raises HDL levels.

Except it didn’t.

It didn’t raise LDL levels (which don’t matter nearly as much as the mainstream claims), and it didn’t raise glucose or insulin, either.

That shouldn’t be too surprising, as studies have repeatedly shown that the extra fat and calories can HELP, not hurt.

People who drink delicious and filling whole milk eat less later, and they are less likely to gain weight.

Time to take all of the weak and watery low- and no-fat milks and dump them down the drain.

You never wanted that watered-down milk anyway.

It’s time to go back — it’s time to take real whole milk out of hiding and put it back into your fridge.

Getting a mooooooove on,
Jack Harrison

P.S. One of my favorite ways to drink milk is by warming it up before I go to bed — but every now and then, even ol’ Jack here needs something a little more powerful to bring on some good Zzzzz’s.

When I want to fall asleep in minutes and not stare at the ceiling for hours (and, let’s face it, who doesn’t want that?), there’s a crazy trick I use that goes to work INSTANTLY — even faster than that warm milk. And I’ll tell you, this thing is a GODSEND.

I’ll have more on this trick that can help ANYONE fall asleep in minutes, so keep an eye on your inbox.

 

 

Blood pressure targets get TRASHED in shocking new report

You read it here first in the Daily Dose: The new blood pressure targets pushed on the masses by the drug-shilling stooges of the American Heart Association will HURT and maybe even KILL innocent Americans.

Now, at least one major mainstream medical organization agrees!

The American College of Physicians has just cranked out a blistering statement slamming both the AHA and American College of Cardiology for their thickheaded new guidelines.

These guidelines are a flat-out assault on sanity, dropping the definition of “hypertension” down from 140/90 to 130/80 mm Hg.

That 10-point switch means more than 30 million Americans went from “normal” BP to “dangerously high” BP practically overnight. And many of them — 4.2 million new patients, to be exact — will be told by their docs that they need meds.

Talk about a wet kiss for the drug industry!

That has members of the ACP’s Clinical Guidelines Committee absolutely livid.

They fired off an editorial in the Annals of Internal Medicinepractically declaring war on these nonsensical guidelines.

“Are the harms, costs, and complexity of care associated with this new target justified by the presumed benefits of labeling nearly half the U.S. population as unwell and subjecting them to treatment?” they wrote. “We think not and believe that many primary care providers and patients would agree.”

You’re darned right they’d agree.

Any doc who’s been around the block a few times knows the dirty secret of BP meds: They hurt far more patients than they help.

And that’s especially true for older folks.

Instead of cutting the guidelines, many top scientists think that we should be RAISING them and pushing for FEWER older patients on the meds.

That’s what the ACP itself did last year.

It upped its guidelines to 150 in folks ages 60 and older, and it’s hardly alone in blasting the new guidelines.

Another editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine says that the guidelines are not only set too low, but they’re also bat-poop crazy in at least one other way: They’re trying to push a one-size-fits-all formula on the masses.

A 30-year-old and an 80-year-old now have the same exact goal, something the editorial notes is “virtually impossible” for the folks on the older side of the coin.

It’s always good to see the time-tested wisdom of the Daily Dosebacked by a major group such as this one. But let’s face it: While they’re arguing with each other, docs are already busily pushing meds onto millions of patients.

If your doc is one of them, point out these new reports and see if you can talk him out of it.

If you’re a little on the bigger side, you’ll make a better case for yourself if you drop a few pounds — which will bring BP down with it — so you can show the doc that you can take care of business on your own.

Keeping up the pressure,
Jack Harrison

Cancer patients fight back against chemo

Here’s chemo in a nutshell: You get sicker than you’ve ever felt in your life, while your doc gets to cash a big, fat check from your insurer.

Unfair?

You bet it is — especially since chemo is often completely unnecessary.

The only reason it’s even offered in many cases is that insurance check!

But now, patients are fighting back, especially women.

New research shows how breast cancer patients are wising up to this ugly scam.

Docs are still pushing it… but women are telling them right were to stick it.

In just two years, the number of women choosing chemo for breast cancer plunged by 40 percent.

In 2013, 35 percent of women opted for this sickening “treatment.” By 2015, that number was down to 21 percent… and I hope that number is even lower in 2018.

Of course, docs see the writing on the wall. They know they’ve been busted, so they’re also recommending chemo less often these days.

But they’re still pushing way too hard.

In 2013, a full 45 percent were trying to hoodwink unsuspecting women into chemo.

By 2015, that number plunged to 32 percent, and even then, about a third of the women who got that recommendation told their docs: NOT IN MY BODY, BUBBA!

Good for them!

On the one hand, it’s great news for women who are no longer getting this body-wrecking therapy when they don’t actually need it.

On the other, cancer docs can be a sneaky lot, and this almost certainly isn’t the end of their ugly little games.

The study doesn’t show what’s replacing chemo, but I bet in too many cases it’s something just as unnecessary… and just as profitable.

Maybe it’s toxic radiation. Maybe it’s aggressive and disfiguring surgery (including removing BOTH breasts for a low-risk cancer in just ONE of them).

Maybe it’s even the infamous “breast cancer drug” that can actually cause entirely new cancers.

Don’t let them panic you into one of these outrageous and expensive treatments. Often the best treatment of all is the one that won’t earn them a penny, which is why they won’t talk about it.

It’s doing NOTHING.

Many low-risk breast tumors — especially the wildly over-treated “stage zero” cancers — can be safely ignored because they will NEVER turn into a dangerous cancer.

If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, take some time to gather facts and go over ALL of your options, including the do-nothing option for early-stage cancers.

And always… ALWAYS… get a second opinion, ideally one from a naturopathic medical doctor experienced in chemo-free cancer care.

Kicking out chemo,
Jack Harrison

 

 

Grandma’s cold cure actually works!

* Do all of our friends & loved ones KNOW “

* Note: Taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 12/16/17

The TV home of “fake news” finally got one right: CNN just released a big report confirming that Grandma’s cure for the common cold actually works.

Yes, friend, chicken soup can help ease the worst of this nasty winter virus.

Maybe CNN should avoid politics and stick to soup!

I’m not even kidding here. It did a bang-up job looking at years of research, which confirms just what you’ve read here in the Daily Dose: Chicken soup might be good “for the soul,” but it’s even better for the chest.

One lab study cited by the network finds that the healthy compounds in a bowl of chicken soup slow immune cells in a way that indicates less inflammation.

That in turn could ease the symptoms — especially in the chest — and shorten the duration of your illness.

That’s not the only research on this. A study from about five years back found that carnosine, an amino acid in chicken soup, can goose your immune system to fight off viral invaders like the nasty little germs behind the cold, flu, and more.

And let’s not forget the steam of the soup, which can float up through your nasal passages and give you a little relief.

While steam in general will help when you’re sick, one study put chicken soup up against water — hot and cold — and found the real broth activated the mucociliary transport system that boots nasty germs and go out of your respiratory tract.

Of course, CNN and the scientists it interviewed say that more research is “needed.”

Good luck with that.

No one’s going to get rich on chicken soup, so you can bet there’s no big rush to fund a study. But don’t let that stop you from doing some science of your own.

Next time you feel a cold coming on… or next time someone in your home is sick… try a dose of chicken soup.

You can buy it — if you can be sure it’s quality stuff — or make it on your own. It’s not hard — just make sure the broth is the real deal, made from the bones of a chicken, which will make it a powerful elixir loaded with magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, and sulfur, as well as calcium and other essential trace minerals.

Next time you have a whole chicken for dinner, toss the carcass in your pressure cooker or crock-pot. You’ll find a whole mess of tasty recipes online, and you can freeze the broth for whenever it’s needed.

Soup is good food,
Jack Harrison

Are you on too many meds? Take this quiz

* Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?
* Note: Taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 11/18/2017

It’s time to stop being shy, my friend.

If your doc has you on too many meds — and odds are, he DOES — it’s time to speak up, take action, reduce the load, and FEEL BETTER than you have in years.

Now, a new report shows how.

It gives six questions to ask yourself about your meds that can help you figure out if you’re on too many… and can also be used as talking points during a powwow with your doc.

Best yet, these aren’t questions your doc can dismiss as coming from some far-off fringe.

They’re right from Consumer Reports magazine, about as mainstream as it gets!

  1. How many docs have their paws in your prescription pile? You know what they say about too many chefs… Well, it’s the same drill for docs. The left hand doesn’t always know what the right hand’s doing. If your meds come from more than one doc, they could be doubling you up.
  2. Are you on OTC meds and supplements? Some of these don’t always make nice with your prescription meds. If you work with the right docs, supplements can REPLACE those meds… but you have to talk to them to make it happen.
  3. Are you on more than one med for the same condition? Some of these can be redundant, as Consumer Reports points out, so talk to your doc. You might not need more than one after all!
  4. Are you taking a med to deal with the side effects of another med? You don’t need me to tell you how comically ridiculous that is. Speak up, and you might have better options, like not being on the darn med causing you all these problems in the first place!
  5. Have you been taking anything for longer than three months? As Consumer Reports notes, many folks end up taking a short-term med over the long run not because they need it… but because no one tells them to stop! It’s all too easy in this age of automatic refills.
  6. Is your monthly drug bill cramping your style? Let’s face it: This stuff ain’t cheap. But mostly, a big bill is often a sign of a new drug that packs MORE risks, but not always bigger benefits. A good doc can get you onto something tried-and-true that’s cheaper and safer, including time-tested natural therapies.

This isn’t optional. This isn’t a matter of convenience. This isn’t even an issue of having fewer of those annoying, but otherwise minor, side effects like cottonmouth, headaches, and nausea.

Taking too many meds — and taking them for too long — can lead to declining health, memory loss, dementia, and more, so answer these questions. If the answers start ringing warning bells, get on the horn and make a call to talk with your doc about getting off of some of your meds.

Putting off the pills,
Jack Harrison

This ‘after-dinner drug’ can sock you with cancer

* Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?
* Note: Taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 11/17/2017

Ask people to name the seasonal foods this time of year, and you’ll get a lot of pumpkin and peppermint. I bet that not one single person will mention the humble cabbage, which is just coming into season right now.

Can you blame them? It smells weird when it’s fresh and rotten when it’s cooked, and it tastes like… well… cabbage.

Let’s just say that plenty of people TOLERATE cabbage, but not many people actually LIKE it.

But if you have acid reflux, it’s time to learn to love this weird little green… and bring it into your life all year long… because it might be the best option you have right now.

You certainly don’t want to mess around with meds.

New research exposes an ugly new risk of the most common drugs given to folks with reflux, and it may be the worst one yet.

Taking these meds… even just SOMETIMES… can lead to one of the country’s deadliest forms of cancer!

Taking a proton pump inhibitor for reflux even once a week can more than DOUBLE your risk of stomach cancer.

That’s a form of cancer that doesn’t get a heck of a lot of attention from the mainstream.

Maybe it’s because docs don’t want to scare the pants off you — because this is one form of the disease they’re not making much progress against.

It can be caused by a poor diet of processed foods, certain types of fungi and bacteria, exposure to ionizing radiation, and now – as the new study shows – one of the most popular meds in the country.

Whatever the cause, the sad truth is that this cancer is a death sentence more than two-thirds of the time… and it’s a sentence you could be given by your own doc if he hands you a prescription for a drug for reflux or heartburn.

The more you use it, the higher the risk climbs.

Use PPIs for a year or more, and your cancer risk jumps by 500 percent. Use them for three or more years, and your risk skyrockets to EIGHT TIMES higher.

Why mess around with those risks when you’ve got better options?

Let’s start with the cabbage.

That weird, smelly, unloved green ball we often toss in the back of the fridge and forget about until it’s a rotten mess has the power to do what these drugs can’t.

It can END reflux WITHOUT the risks.

But don’t just eat it. Juice it and drink it!

If the taste is a little tough on your buds, add a little carrot. Or just hold your nose and knock it back fast. It’s worth the effort. Not only is cabbage cheap, but the juice can ease heartburn, reflux, gastritis, ulcers, and more.

Now, where’d I put the corned beef?

Getting ahead of reflux,

Do you want the inside scoop on the biggest breakthroughs in medicine YEARS ahead of everyone else?

Read the Daily Dose!

I’m not even kidding, my friend — and the proof is in the latest research sending shockwaves around the world.

Scientists were STUNNED to discover that one of the most common — and most EXPENSIVE — treatments given to angina patients does ZIP.

It’s called a percutaneous coronary intervention, a.k.a. angioplasty with a stent — or when they shove a tube into your veins and leave the stent in place to prop it open.

It’s supposed to restore the flow of blood and, more importantly, ease the chest pain that marks angina, especially in folks who feel it when they try to get a little active or even just walk around.

This has been the “gold standard” treatment for YEARS now… but the new report finds that it DOESN’T WORK.

In the new study, folks who feel angina pain on exertion were given either a real stent or a sham operation when they THOUGHT they got a stent… but didn’t.

Two weeks later, no one could tell who got what. While the ones who had the stent had better blood flow, they had the SAME levels of improvement in pain… and SAME level of improvement in their exertion levels on a treadmill test.

The mainstream is flat-out stunned.

One expert told The New York Times that the results were “unbelievable.” Another read the study and immediately cancelled a stent he had planned to put into someone that very day.

Some of the leading voices in the industry are even calling for the stent-happy guidelines to be torn up and tossed out!

Maybe all of these experts should’ve had a subscription to the Daily Dose. We had the full scoop on this in September, and I don’t mean two months ago.

We blew the lid off of this one in September of 2008!

A little-noticed study at the time found that angioplasty can actually TRIGGER a heart attack and that some people DIE during the procedure… for a very minor benefit that completely vanishes within three years.

That study concluded that stenting can be put off “indefinitely” with medication (instead of surgery) in most patients.

But there’s a reason the study was ignored by everyone except the Daily Dose.

The surgery costs up to $40,000 a pop and is done hundreds of thousands of times a year. It’s a multi-billion-dollar industry, so it’s in everyone’s interest to keep popping stents.

Everyone, that is, except for YOU.

Don’t assume that you need one of these procedures. Sure, there may be times when a stent could save your life, like during a heart attack.

But for stable angina and such, ask a doc about your other options… and never be too shy to get a second opinion.

Stopping the stenting,
Jack Harrison

Everything in moderation… EXCEPT for this!

Think a little soda won’t hurt?

Think again!

I know, I know. “Soda is bad for you” ain’t exactly cutting-edge health advice. The only doctor who’d tell you otherwise is Dr. Pepper.

But we all have a bad habit or two… and, for some folks, it’s soda.

And maybe not even a whole lot of soda. Just an occasional cola every now and again, maybe a couple of times a week, and that’s it.

That should be safe… right?

WRONG!

The latest research shows that even this tiny bit of soda — twice a week — can lead to serious, permanent, and even DEADLY health problems!

The new review of 36 studies finds the damage of soda kicks in at very low levels.

Just one can of soda — just once! — can cause blood sugar to spike. No surprise, since it’s essentially liquid sugar, with a single can of cola containing almost two days’ worth of the sweet stuff.

But that single serving can also trigger a spike in blood pressure, which is bad news if your levels are already somewhere out in orbit.

The risks only get greater from there, starting with that twice-a-week habit.

Some of the studies in the review found that this small-but-steady intake of soda — or any other sugar-sweetened drink, including “sports” and “energy” drinks — can increase your risk of weight gain, obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Is any habit worth that? Not on your life… and the study in the Journal of the Endocrine Society shows that’s exactly what’s on the line here.

Your life.

It’s time to pick a new “bad” habit. Maybe stick to one that isn’t so bad after all.

Some wet blankets will tell you not to drink beer — but unlike soda, a brew or two can actually be GOOD for you, cutting the risk of heart disease (as long as you’re healthy enough to handle the alcohol and not on any meds that don’t mix).

Some folks will even tell you not to drink coffee, but a few mugs a day will PROTECT you, not hurt you. As I shared just last week, a little java can add years to your life.

Heck, even those fancy teas they’re always pushing on you when you try to walk through the mall are better for you than soda, with some types of tea cutting the risk of cancer, heart disease, and more.

They key with both coffee and tea is to drink it WITHOUT sugar and other sweeteners, so you get all of those benefits without the risks.

And with beer, of course, the key is moderation, just like it is with nearly everything… except soda.

Kicking the can,
Jack Harrison

Could you get cancer from your tap water?

Your water… SAFE?

Don’t bet your life on it!

A new report claims American water is safer than ever, with new regulations calling for lower levels of arsenic already saving lives.

Just one problem: The feds made the same claim not too long ago, even BEFORE they dropped those levels!

How can both statements possibly be true?

It’s simple. They CAN’T be true.

About a decade ago, the feds quietly lowered the allowable levels of this toxic compound in the drinking water.

They claimed the levels didn’t NEED to be lowered but were lowering them anyway because… well, who knows? Maybe just for fun.

Now, a new report claims that arsenic levels in the urine of the typical American have dropped by an average of 17 percent since the new rules were put into place in 2006.

That’s led to 200 fewer cases of lung and bladder cancer a year, the study says.

That right there is rock-solid proof that the old levels were anything but safe — and those are just two of the risks linked to arsenic exposure. Even at low levels — even at the levels STILL in the water — arsenic can lead to cancers of skin, kidneys, and liver and damage the nervous, respiratory, and immune systems.

And that’s just ONE of the chemicals flowing from your tap!

U.S. drinking water is a toxic soup loaded with antibiotics, fuel residue, metals, and more. There are so many hormones in the waterways now that fish and frogs are spontaneously changing genders.

And that’s not even getting into the stuff DELIBERATELY put into the water, like chlorine — which can make your faucet smell like a swimming pool — and fluoride.

A few years back, the feds quietly lowered the allowable levels of fluoride. Same deal as with the arsenic — they claimed that the old levels weren’t dangerous and they were just trying to be precautionary.

Yeah, right.

You can bet that just like with arsenic, there will be a report in a few years noting how many lives were saved by the lower fluoride levels.

So much for safe!

It’s time to stop counting on them and take matters into your own hand to get safe, clean water free of hormones, chemicals, metals, drugs, and more.

Don’t waste your time or money on those little faucet and pitcher filters. They’re not up to the job.

You need to break out the big guns — and when it comes to cleaning up water, there is nothing bigger or better than reverse osmosis. Have the filtration system installed where the water enters your home to ensure that every tap is protected.

Turning off the tap,

The biggest myth about supplements… BUSTED!

* Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note: Taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 10/30/2017

Supplements? You might as well mention voodoo to some mainstream docs.

Tell them you’re taking a tried-and-true natural therapy like fish oil, and he’ll act is if you’re on bat’s breath and eye of newt.

He’ll WARN you about nonexistent dangers. He’ll URGE you to take only the meds he prescribes and nothing else. And he’ll even LIE right to your face with the lamest claim of all.

He’ll say you can’t trust supplements because they’re “not regulated” by the FDA.

Well, friend, if your doc is feeding you that tired old line, I’ve got an FDA bulletin you need to share with him… because it PROVES that the agency not only keeps tight control over supplements… but quickly takes action when it finds anything amiss.

The agency claims a supplement maker in California with links to China isn’t following the industry-standard good manufacturing practices.

And as a result, the FDA shut the entire operation down.

That’s right. SHUT DOWN.

Doesn’t sound unregulated to me!

The suit filed by the feds over the case states that this company “failed to ensure the finished product met federal guidelines specifying the products’ purity, strength, and composition,” according to Law360.

The company also failed to test products to ensure compliance with the law, the suit states.

How can anyone possibly make the claim that supplements are unregulated with a straight face after reading that?

Clearly, there’s a LONG list of federal regulations, including guidelines for “purity, strength, and composition” as well as requirements for testing, and the suit admits it.

And if you fall short, the FDA WILL come after you and shut you down.

A statement released by the agency even admitted that it is “responsible for the safety and security” of dietary supplements, among other things.

Think about that next time some TV talking head tries to trash supplements by claiming they’re unregulated.

Meanwhile, drug makers — the ones who are supposedly regulated — get away with just about anything. The feds often leave meds on the market for YEARS, even when risks come to light and even when the drugs are linked to actual deaths.

Don’t give in to the fear-mongering.

If your own doctor treats supplements like witchcraft, seek the advice of an experienced naturopathic physician who knows when you might need meds — and, more importantly, when supplements will do the job just fine.

Obviously, there are bad players in any industry, even natural medicine, so do your homework… don’t trust shady, fly-by-night firms… and only do business with companies you know and trust.

Proudly unregulated,
Jack Harrison

If you hate your money, this new arthritis drug is for you!

* Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note: Taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 10/21/2017

Well, friends, it’s here. There’s a new arthritis drug on the market.

It’s not an opioid. It’s not addictive. The researchers claim there’s almost no risk of side effects. And you only need it once every few months.

But don’t sign up for this one just yet.

The drug might make your knee pain fade, if only just a little… but you’ll get weak in the knees when you see the price.

The new drug, delivered by injection every three months, costs $500 a shot!

That’s about $2,000 a year for four quick treatments.

Since it’s a new drug, many insurers won’t cover it yet — so, if you want even a little taste of what it has to offer, you’re going to have to drain your bank account.

It’s essentially a corticosteroid, a type of drug that tends to be bad news for folks with diabetes because it rapidly sweeps into the blood and causes sugar levels to rocket.

But this one has been tweaked.

It’s a reformulation that moves more slowly into the blood, so there’s no sugar spike. In theory, that makes it safe for folks who need to watch out for that.

The Pharma bros are crowing as if they’ve just sliced bread for the first time.

Me? I can’t help but notice they haven’t made a peep about the OTHER well-known risks of corticosteroids, including everything from cataracts to thinning bone.

These are problems that pop up only after long-term use — and the studies used to get this new version approved didn’t run anywhere NEAR long enough to nail down those risks.

I’m guessing they’re in no hurry to find out, either!

But at the end of the day, the biggest flaw with the new drug isn’t the price or even the long-term risks.

It’s that it attacks the wrong problem.

It goes after inflammation… and since that’s a direct cause of pain, of course you want to bring it down.

So… what’s my gripe here?

The thousands of dollars you’ll fork over will do nothing about the CAUSE of that inflammation — and that’s the fact that the inside of your knee is falling apart faster than the NFL’s TV ratings.

Anti-inflammatory drugs won’t slow that damage down.

But OTHER treatments will, including a potent joint builder called UC-II collagen that’s so effective for arthritis patients that it’s gone head-to-head against glucosamine and chondroitin in studies and flat-out won by just about every measure you care about.

Look for a quality formula from a maker you trust. Even the best stuff is available for a small fraction of the price of this new drug.

Rockin’ the joint,
Jack Harrison

New BP guidelines are a gift to Big Pharma

* Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note: Taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 10/15/2017

Mainstream health authorities throw the word “evidence” around so much you’d think they were auditioning for a Perry Mason reboot.

But when it comes to recognizing ACTUAL evidence, these clowns are more on par with The Keystone Cops!

The latest bit of blundering — being cooked up RIGHT NOW — comes in the form of a new set of guidelines for blood pressure targets.

They’re not going to be announced, officially, until next month’s American Heart Association meeting in Anaheim.

But the inside word is that authorities have already signed and sealed the deal — and they’re going to push docs to aim for dramatically lower blood pressure levels across the board.

They’re taking the current 140/90 target — already impossible to meet for most older Americans — and tossing it right out the window.

Now, they want everyone to have a blood pressure level of 130/80. EVERYONE… even you!

If you’re a little older, you know what that means.

There’s not a chance in heck you can hit that mark on your own — because BP rises with age, and arteries naturally get a little stiffer.

All these guidelines will really do is guarantee a windfall for drug makers as older folks are practically forced to choke back one… two… maybe even three meds or more just to hit this paper target.

They claim that the infamous SPRINT trial shows that dropping those levels down will cut the risk of heart attack and stroke.

That might even be true.

But gobbling all those meds will increase OTHER risks, including some that can turn an aging senior’s life upside down.

These drugs can give you memory loss so severe that your own doc will think you’re slipping over the edge.

But the biggest risk is in something far more immediate and serious.

Drugs that drop blood pressure can also cause YOU to drop, increasing the risk of serious falls — including the kind that’ll split your head open or crack a bone, leading to an injury that’ll put you in a wheelchair, the old folks’ home, or even the morgue.

Let me give you the real deal on blood pressure: There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all formula. What you have to watch out for isn’t just rising a little above some ever-changing target… but BP levels that soar SUDDENLY for NO apparent reason and STAY high.

If that happens, you STILL won’t find the answer in mind-scrambling, dizzying BP meds.

It’s getting yourself hooked up with a doc who has the smarts to figure out WHY your blood pressure is on the rise… and then get to work on FIXING that cause.

I recommend an experienced naturopathic medical doctor.

Is your ‘muffin top’ a sign of… CANCER?

  • Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

Ladies, remember when someone else’s “muffin top” might’ve made you giggle?

Then… one day… it happened to you. Despite your best efforts, your own muffin grew a top and popped right over your waistline.

Not so funny anymore, is it?

Don’t worry. I’m here with a muffin-fighting plan that’ll chop the top and give you the waistline of your dreams.

But first — a new study exposes the biggest risk of muffin top, and it’s not the giggles of younger and more slender people staring at your waistline, unaware that one day it’ll happen to them.

It’s CANCER!

Muffin top isn’t just a sign of any old fat.

It’s a sure sign that you’ve built up a deep inner layer of visceral fat, the dangerous blubber that builds up inside your abdominal cavity.

On the outside, it forces the external layer of fat to pop over your pants and form that distinct muffin shape. On the inside, it puts the squeeze on your vital organs.

But the new study finds it does something else, too.

Once it forms that solid layer deep inside your middle, visceral fat sets up a factory that works overtime cranking out a protein called FGF2. That’s short for fibroblast growth factor-2, but don’t bother trying to remember the name.

Just remember what it does: It causes normal healthy cells to go haywire and turn into cancer cells.

The more FGF2 your body cranks out, the more of those cells form. And when you have enough of those cells, you’ve got a recipe for a deadly tumor.

To see the process unfold, researchers plucked those protein-pumping fat cells from human women and then implanted them into mice.

It was almost like they fertilized those poor little critters with “Cancer-Gro” as the muffin top fat cells quickly transformed the surrounding healthy tissue into cancer cells.

And that’s just ONE way the dreaded muffin top can lead to a tumor!

When that ugly layer of fat plops up, it also causes your hormone levels to go haywire. Since that layer usually appears after menopause, you’re already struggling with estrogen.

That one-two punch could fuel certain types of cancers, and that’s why you need to act to chop the top.

First, make sure you’re eating a healthy diet low in carbs and with zero processed foods.

But even if you’re eating a perfect diet, low estrogen can make it hard to lose weight and easy to gain it — so, get your hormone levels tested by a naturopathic doc.

If you’re low, he can help work with you to boost your body’s production with treatments up to and including safe and natural bioidentical hormones.

With a chop for the top,

This ONE additive could undermine your entire diet

You’re finally ready to commit.

After reading about the life-changing effects of the low-carb diet here in the Daily Dose — after maybe even SEEING the stunning results in some of the folks around you who’ve tried it — you’re going to give it a shot yourself.

You’ve tossed the sugar in the trash… fed what’s left of the bread to the birds… and donated your pasta stash to the local food pantry.

But new research reveals one more step you need to take before you can REALLY expect to enjoy ALL of the benefits.

You’ve got to quit all the other sweeteners, too.

I know. You’re hoping for something to take the bite out of your coffee… or maybe a diet soft drink as a “guilty pleasure.”

These sweeteners SEEM to fit the bill perfectly. After all, they have ZERO carbs and ZERO calories. But the new study shows how there’s more at work here than carbs and calories.

In fact, these fake sugars can actually UNDERMINE your brand-new lifestyle!

In a series of experiments on fruit flies, fake sugars seemed to stimulate the appetites of the bugs. When they were placed on a low-carb diet, artificial sweeteners had an immediate and noticeable effect.

They began to eat up everything in sight!

It’s as if their appetites went haywire, and they could no longer control themselves — and the more of those sweeteners they got, the more they ate.

Flies NOT given the sweeteners, on the other hand, didn’t eat more when they were put on the low-carb diet.

I know, you don’t have wings or those crazy bug eyes. You’re nothing like a fly! So how could this possibly mean anything to you?

Well, friend, it should mean plenty.

Not only do the brains of the bugs have some of the same triggers as your own, but we’ve also seen similar results in human studies.

And not just in low-carb dieters, either.

Fake sugars appear to trick the brain’s appetite controls, leading to MORE cravings… MORE hunger… and MORE eating. As a result, studies show folks who use artificial sweeteners can have a higher risk of weight gain, obesity, and diabetes.

That’s exactly what you don’t want out of a diet, whether you’re a fly or a human.

So, quit the sweets and let your brain and body work as they were intended. Go low-carb — without sweeteners — and they’ll quickly reset themselves so you can eat ’til you’re full, never count calories, and watch the weight fly away.

Your fly guy,
Jack Harrison

Just ONE soda can do this to your body

Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

It’s 2017, and no one’s under any illusions anymore.

Soda’s bad, right?

We all know that, yet I bet you’ve had a soda at some point recently.

Don’t be too hard on yourself over it — soda’s a multi-billion-dollar industry, so you’re hardly alone.

The reason it remains popular is simple: While we all KNOW soda is bad, most people think an occasional pop might not be too bad. If you’re one of them, you might order one, for example, just when you’re eating out.

But new research shows how that’s exactly when you SHOULDN’T have one!

While there’s no GOOD time to drink soda, the foods they’re often served with tend to be high in fat and high in protein.

Y’know… fast food. Big Mac and a Coke, right?

Eating any form of high-fat fast food with water would be bad enough, but the study finds that if you suck back a soda while you eat that junk, you’re not just getting extra calories from sugar.

This combo also slows the body’s fat oxidation by 8 percent.

That’s just what it sounds like: How you break down fat. When that process slows, you store more of that unsightly blubber, especially around your middle.

In other words, there’s more than a little truth to the old saying, “A moment on the lips, forever on the hips!”

That’s not the only damage, either.

In the study, volunteers were given meals with either a sugary drink or a sugar-free one while in a sealed chamber to measure their metabolism. Those tests revealed that the body fails to burn about a third of the calories that come from the drink itself.

And to complete the ugly picture, the body uses less energy overall when digesting a meal with a sugary drink.

Again, that’s everything you DON’T want. It means you’ll store more energy — in other words, your body will create more fat — instead of working off the meal and soft drink.

Don’t be tempted into thinking that diet soda is the healthier choice, simply because its immediate effects aren’t as bad.

Diet soda is, in many ways, just as unhealthy as regular soda. In some ways, it might even be worse.

Instead of losing weight, diet soda drinkers can often gain it — and studies show some may have a higher risk of diabetes to boot. One study earlier this year even found that diet soda can triple the risk of one form of stroke and boost the odds of dementia.

Drink water instead. Try infusing fruit or using herbal teas for flavor… or club soda if you need some fizz.

God bless,
