Darcus or Darkus, Howe, if you have one more fight left in you then this is the (human rights/Black rights) fight for you. This stems from your question which was (as you broadcast it): "Why do 1 in 4 African-Caribbean or Black men in (the United Kingdom, and by implication: in the Northern countries), get Prostate cancer?"

A few short words spell out the combination of factors which have led to the state where African-Caribbeans and their African cousins (who reside in the northern countries) suffer such an alarming level of prostate cancer, even when compared to their white brothers. Amongst other things.

The few short words are: ignorance, stupidity, greed, callous, evil and maybe the word "research" belongs in there somewhere.

Lets take the first word: ignorance.

The vast majority of Blacks from any quarter on this planet, have a vague or non-existent knowledge of the true factors that make for excellent, long duration health. That is ignorance.

The second word is: stupidity.

Almost every black person entirely relies upon and takes for granted that the white Euro-American medical and health institutes, are the only people or organizations who are responsible for the researching, honest solution finding, planning, management and administration of the health requirements of (black) people (in the Northern countries.) This is plain stupidity or wishful thinking (to be kind.)

The third word is: greed.

The greed of the most powerful influence upon medicine, and upon the health industries, and upon (medical) health research is jaw dropping to behold.

Time after time, it seems that the latest advertised, trumpeted and marketed to frenzy pitch "Wonder Drug" or "Magic Bullet", is going to deliver miracle cures as advertised and promised.

Time after time after time ... it is not just disappointed punters who end up with the ashes of the "Dream Cure" in their laps (and in their veins.) It is more cadevars in morgues up and down the countries where these "New Wonder Drugs" totally failed to deliver any kind of a cure.

All that occurs after the demand for special Governmental preference in terms of tax concessions and more, demands for Governments to sink "investment" money into the medical drugs manufacturers, demands for "protection from prosecution" for the claimed "few cases where the 'treatment' will have mortal consequences" upon the too-trusting, ignorant individuals who believed the Wonder Pill/Wonder Treatment, hype.

Any "patient" who goes to a doctor of medicine with some ailment or complaint, is likely facing (if it is a major body mal-condition), ... will be facing a Round-Robin of "treatments" which will last well into the next decade or two (or three, should that patient not have "croaked" by then.)

From the very first doctor that they see, that doctor well knows the Round-Robin journey this new patient is actually obliviously embarking upon. The doctor, being a "good doctor" does not, of course, tell the fearful, hopeful, trusting "patient" that with the first batch of Patented drugs, that patient is now on the merry-go-round which takes them from pill to different pill. And with each new Wonder Drug that patient is shifted to, because the last one wasn't doing it (or the Side-effects were just too much), the real winners who sit in their very expensive offices (when they are not jetting out for a 7 Star lunch in the best Parissiene restaurants), are happily rubbing their hands together at the growing sales of their newly lauched Wonder Drug. A drug which has a profit margin (even unknown to the prescribing doctors) of some 6000%.

And Darcus says, "Why, why, why is it that Black men are suffering so much more from Prostate cancer?" The next word gives even more of a clue.

The next word is: callous.

The purpose of any Pharmaceutical firm or corporate (so they tell us, and they tell Government Ethics Committees), is to make as much money as they possibly can (such have the laws applied to corporations been subverted --- and then called 'capitalism') and to dominate "their market place." After all, none of their executives, none of their marketing or sales forces, and not even any of their private investors are required to take the Hippocratic Oath (that is: if, any of you know what The Hippocratic Oath is?) They also say that they are 'helping the economy by providing jobs'. An argument, which for popularity seeking politicians, becomes a 'don't look too closely into that' subject.

So, the Pharmaceutical firm, the Pharmacy oligopoly, Big Pharma, the Drugs companies have an eye on the following few things:

1) Increasing sales of their drugs (sorry, "medications")
2) Increasing their market "share"
3) Increasing their profits --- increasing how much money they are all making. Very nice, thank you!
4) Getting doctors to prescribe their branded drug (more sales, more money!) Undeclared perks or bungs, and even undeclared income from Pharmaceutical companies direct to (many) individual doctors. Plus biased, or very deviously marketed "Medications Promotions Literature" and advertisements to doctors and other buyers of medicines.
5) Convincing government that they are ethical, and that they are "acting in the best interests of their shareholders." Which apparently is: to make the largest possible profits, and increase profits even more. No "ethical" interest at all expressed by them for the "patient".
6) Getting universities to support their brands or kinds of "treatments" for disease or pathologies. Through vastly lucrative financing or "Research Funding" schemes and hidden perks for medical "scientific" "researchers".
7) Making sure that research which the Pharmaceutical oligopoly is privy to, stays that way. Certain research findings which would, if publicly and widely known, greatly reduce society's blind dependence upon the drug 'em or slash 'em treatments of the medical establishment.
8) Finally, the last most significant activity of Big Pharma is to obliterate "the competition". Things such as Chinese medicine; Alternative Medicine; Holistic Medicine; Traditional Medicine; Counselling; Nutritional Therapies.

Big Pharma does this most successfully by running Black Propaganda, or Machiavellian, or "Sun Tzu: The Art of War ('Business Is War')" campaigns against such things through The Media.

A media which depends more on Drug advertising and related, revenues, than on motor car advert revenue. So, you know who is boss in that relationship --- don't you?

Now, would the media then run any stories of any successes with alternative means of improving people's health, or even of any ways of actually curing the ill? No, the media would not. Big Pharma would take punitive measures against any "news" paper or television company (which also depend for a vast portion of their income on Pharmaceutical product advertising) which ran any story contrary to Big Pharma's propaganda and drug treatment pushing. So would the puppet organizations which are the Food and Drug Administration and others.

We have now reached the last word, in our list of words, which is: evil.

Evil is a word which beautifully sums up the corrosive and malignant effect of the drugs companies upon both the practitioners of health and the health industry itself, right across the world. But, particularly, where it is easiest to get away with it --- which happens to be in the Northern countries of the West. The money is easier, these societies are fully trained into "consumerism", and the politicians and academia are also easier to coerce or to bully or to buy off. And sure, ambitious but as yet unskilled doctors and new drug trails are still conducted in Third World countries were the victims of bungled procedures or trials of new 'techniques' which are being perfected really for the expensive Advanced Nations medical market place ... and those new drugs under test protocols which can be easily evaded in places such as deepest, darkest Africa ... well, these happen. And the sophisticated justification is, "Well, should the (secretly) training doctor, or should these (hidden) drugs trials work out well for the patient then the patient got an opportunity he might otherwise never have had. So, it's all good!

What is the biggest industry on planet Earth? No, it's not that, it's the drugs industry. Some three trillion dollars worth, yearly. Count on that to pervert and skew any Hippocratic Oath or any sensible thinking on the part of the health service and on the part of the consumerist consumer, or even on the part of Governments that sit in hallowed white buildings which resonate to the history of the most famous Constitution of them all.

Darcus Howe, you have been told. Now, be a good boy would you? And join the queue for your medications. There's a good boy! What a jolly good sport, wot?

Or, you have another choice: wake up from constantly banging heads with head bangers. Head bangers that like nothing more than to assign their head banging crew to keep you occupied in doing just that, and getting nowhere getting any real and honest answers. So, you never get to see who or why, when and where, and how it is that "your people" are just another bunch of victims. Nothing any more racist than that the oppressors realize that you and yours have neither the (intelligence), nor the resources, nor the know-how to punch your way out of a wet paper bag, to arrive at any mastery of bio-chemistry and the health of the human body --- your own human bodies, even if they are black (and deteriorating to sickness.)

Realize also, that for quite some long time now, it has been known by the researchers of Big Pharma that malnutrition is the greatest single contributor to long term disease development. And, Big Pharma likes to cure that with drugs.

You say, "Malnutrition?" And you say, "But, I eat my fish and chips every day (or if you are really proud: you say, "I eats my rice and peas every day.") I never suffers from hunger. I gets food and eat up, me! Fried chicken and rice. Curry goat and ... . Malnutrition, what malnutrition? I even drinks plenty of good, strong Jamaican Rum. The good stuff! No problem, man! No malnutrition here!"

And yet, if you did the research (instead of head banging, year after year) or found good honest researchers in the field of nutrition and the African-Caribbean, or the African-African, who did not stealthly represent the interests of the drug pushing Big Pharma nor the Status Quo of the Medical establishment, you would be told of a spectrum of nutritional deficiencies peculiar and particular to African-whatever ("Black people") actually exist, and right now. And have done ever since slaves were shipped out of Africa. After all, it could well be said that most slaves who died on their voyage to "The Land of the Free", were slaves who died from malnutrition. Wouldn't it be so? And, has it changed any since those "un-enlightened" days of yester-Century? No, it really has not. Blacks continue to let themselves "to be sold down the river", onto their next master and enslaver (even if such a master is only a cleverly maintained state of degenerative ignorance.)

Finally realize that white people are "white" skinned for a reason.

That reason for white skin is the exact difference to why more "dark" skinned people (and, only in the Northern climes) suffer from more cases of prostate cancer. That is the hidden fact and factor.

What does skin transparency to light have to do with prostate cancer? How about "sunshine"? Practically no sunshine to speak of in the Northern climes for many months of any year. What's sunshine got to do with nutritional deficiency? Well, not all nutrition for the body comes ready created and through the mouth. The human body needs to make vitamin D3.

Another way to say this is: the body through evolution (or however it has got to today), has found that eating does not truly provide an extremely necessary nutrional component: vitamin D3. Which differs from vitamin D, and differs from vitamin D2.

The body then finds vitamin D3 so crucial that it causes white people and even, dark skinned people, to have lighter shade of skin, in the Northern climes. A lighter 'colour' of skin enables sunshine to reach into that level of the body where it it then provides energy assistance to the body in the creation by the body of vitamin D3. More completely, the human body then commits quite a bit of its own energy and processing to convert other substances plus sunshine (Ultra Violet B energy, not Ultra Violet A), into vitamin D3.

There now exist a very large number of ethical and honest studies which demonstrate what vitamin D3 helps the human body to do. And, vitally, definitive evidence exists that vitamin D3 is crucial when it comes to cancer and the human body.

White skinned people's bodys create more vitamin D3 during the winter months than do dark skinned people (in the Northern climates). And, that is if dark skinned people's bodies manage to create any vitamin D3 at all. 'Naturally', black people, dark skinned people suffer vitamin D3 malnutrition more keenly than do their white brothers. And, over the years, the deficiency aggravates the body's systems and functioning, more and more.

It is also a fact that black people suffer another kind of significant consequence of vitamin D3 malnutrition: namely, what psychs call "depression", for which psychs (psychiatrists/psychologists) like to dish out mind-bending drugs "for depression" "treatment". An observant person will observe that black people are far less jovial, energetic, lively, bright, or enlivened, during the winter months than they are during the bright, heady days of summer --- and few have ever noticed to wonder why.

But the psychiatrist and the Pharmaceutical companies noticed, and made drugs in readiness. And so did the maker and pusher of "Cold medicines", "Flu Vaccinations": Vitamin D3 is totally essential in the body's immune system. A deficiency of Vitamin D3, which happens 'all the time' for black/dark skinned people (Northern Climates), means that bacteria or virii which exist all year round (they don't die and then 'reappear' at winter time), can get into the body and be not attacked and destroyed -- no properly functioning immune system. No, or not enough Vitamin D3.

Now, Darcus, all your friends who died of prostate cancer --- all of them who got the good old Big Pharma drugs show and tell, and still died --- wonder what they would say if they knew that Big Pharma had this answer now for over 30 years, but never told. After all, Big Pharma "would be doing a disservice to the shareholders": telling about vitamin D3 and prostate cancer would mean no sales of cancer "treatments" and "medications". Plus, none of all those lovely Chem-therapy units. Those expensive ones, too! Just wouldn't do would it? It's just not cricket --- old boy! And, you African-Caribs are such good sports!

Yours sincerely, Venerable Chemical and Surgical Junkie --- and please! Would you throw in some toxic pollutants, or genetic pollutants, or Genetically Modified 'Foods', too! Why, thank you! You are so kind, understanding, responsible, ethical and considerate.

[The following is what was said to another venerable and honourable member of The Billionaire Old Crusts Gentlemen's Private Club, "Blacks are so laughably trusting and hopeful! They are even more trusting than that damned hunting dog of mine! Har, har, har!"

"And Cuthbertson, and Monseuir Henri, and Herr Gruber: you know I don't hate Blacks. I love them! They bring in so much more immensely pleasurable wealth for me, and for you too. Don't they? After all, you and I are the ones who really own 'their countries' har, har!

"And, we own all those mineral and other raw material reserves. Hell, we own all the patents that they need to establish any kind of industry on any of 'their nations', har! har! And, we dispose of, enrage, confuse, character assassinate, or have executed any 'bright' leaders or 'politicians' which they might occassionally burp up! Har! It's all too simple, really! As well as we confuse their nascent 'democracies' and bring them to finely boiling chaos. Har! And by telling them that they've got to do it all this way and that way for us to approve of you ... And there is the whole Smithsonian or the British library to learn first before 'you catch up' and are considered 'politically mature'! Goodness! We do have terrific fun don't we gentlemen?

"Also, we go to great lengths to take care of them, to feed them, to clothe --- even to teach them to dress correctly. Don't we?

"Don't we all put them on Social Security or some such? And provide them with other basics such as Council Housing ('The Projects'). You know, a thousand people to the acre! Har! har! har! While we go hunting on a little 'Safari' in hundreds of thousands of square miles emptied of (Blacks) by our Non-Government Organisations ('charities', 'social concern' organizations) who have carefully taught the Blacks that they don't know and have no slightest clue how to go about properly administering 'their' har! har! countries. 'Environmental Preservation', 'Animals Preservation' and all that. Just so we can jet off to 'bring them tourist, Big Dollar' hunting the 1000s and 1000s of tons of protein that goes free, running around those 'protected' animal wildlife 'parks'.

"And yet, just a few 1000 miles away, in any direction that you care to pick from those wild life reserves, there are millions of starving black bodies. Starving for a nice, juicy steak or two. And, even for some well grown fruit and vegetables.

"And yet, think of it: when we invaded the Americas, we immediately went to work annihilating all those un-tender sirloin steaks on hooves that they call 'buffalo'. Until we'd cleared more than enough land of the buffalo and its eaters, the 'Indians', so that we could build what we wanted and grow what we needed for proper sustenance and growth. And yet, and yet, we tell the Blacks in Africa, and here, that: 'Look at what us wicked White people did. We went and took the Americas and we cleared it of all things and people that we did not want. Look how bad and wicked it is to do that. How bad and wicked it is to do as you think you find is best to expand and develop as a people and a culture. Learn from our mistakes and don't clear land of wild, precious things. Keep those and get tourists to pay you to keep them.' Har! har! har!

"And, the Blacks fall for it, every time. They get much less money or production than if they went ahead and developed things in those hundreds and thousands of emptied of Blacks, wild lands, where the wildebeest, lion and the happy vulture, roam free. And they just haven't realised! Har! har! har!
And, they then spend their few, tourism earned dollars (their money is worthless), shopping in all the Wal-Marts, Tescos, Sainsburys and the rest, which we've put over there. And, we know that per man, we earn 6 times as much from 'their' resources as we pay them in Social Security --- so, who wins? We do! Har! har! har! Plus, we make sure that they don't on the whole, live long.

Clever all that bio-chemistry stuff. 'Nutrition', eh? Disease, ay? Har! har! har! 'Education', ho! ho! ho! 'Freedom', he! ho! he! 'Cure for cancer' ho! ho! 'Cure for AIDS' ha! ho! ha! 'Chemo-therapy' he! he! he! Aren't we clever, extremely wealthy boys! Har!]

I have added some additional but necessary material as I found that there was some more information which is necessary to all this. This additional information is posted in this thread, about post 8, further along these posts.

@ African Renaissance

Hope you are well.

You write so poetically, what a great contribution. Thank you. :clap:

Can you recommend any good resources for learning more about vitamin D3?

Either way, whatever path you take in life I hope you continue sharing, writing (fiction as well as factual opinion) and educating.

Hello Toyin! And others!

Your appreciation is much valued.

As regards your request for references: first, please pardon my omission in my original post (not having already provided references.)

To correct that omission, here are some Web links to references:

http://www.naturalne...c_research.html

http://naturalnews.t...8E62E42C5A0AD5E

Okay, I think these references will provide you with plenty. And, from them you can get more "leads" should you need or want them.

And, of course, much the same thing as discussed in my original post (above) matters very much for our precious black women and girls.

If the figures for rates of cancers amongst the black population such as breast cancer and Cervical cancer were known (though these figures are "known" by the medical industry/authorities: they at the very least, get the "hot dope" immediately from the Mortician technicians, or the Coroner/Medical Examiner from the morgues where they've freshly done the autopsies or Post-Mortem examination to conclude the "Cause of Death"), it will be distressingly obvious that this same scenario is being played out in the same grievious manner for Black women and girls (and any 'dark' skin type) in the Northern climates. It even affects 'light' skin types too --- but of course, not to the same extent by a factor of 10 (see References supplied.)

That is 10x (10 times, ten times) is the multiplier by which the difference between indoors staying, office working, or Northern climate living Black people of either gender, suffer by that magnitude (or number) more than our white brothers and sisters (who also suffer from cancer).

The "solutions" foisted upon women (in general), are of course "Vaccines against Cancer" such as Gardisil. And other "latest", "miracle", "Cancer treatments." but not cures.

One might even concluded, when looking over the facts and factors of this scene, that some kind of very insidious, and very cleverly worked out, Population control or Population weakening, were being deliberately executed by whoever or whatever had the "intelligence", the resource, the determination and the malevolence of intent, to do all this against so many. While (itself?) or (themselves?) remaining hidden from view or investigation and discovery.

Well, lies and camouflaged harmful intentions and actual activity and actions, (cannot?) remain hidden for ever. The malevolent agent/agency (the cause) and its (servants? or associates) strives continuously, industriously, strenuously, and rather successfully to ensure that the saying "You can fool all of the people some of the time, (you can fool) some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time --- gets to be actually proven false or invalid (not applicable).

Especially as the incredulous-ness the overwhelming mental shock packed into the data of such things, tends to knock-out (practically) the sensitive (weakened) minds of those who would benefit from knowing and understanding the factual danger and its factual source/s or originators. Causing the recipient of such data to turn into a quivering, gibbering, wreck of chaos, indecision or quaking anxiety. Which renders them inoperative or incapable of taking on the danger and find a way to handle it, with other good people --- as a determined group, (essential).

It also occurred to me that this post looks more and more to be one which has merit for being posted in the Solutions forum, and/or in the Hair, Body and Skin Care forum, or even in the Information, Technology and Science forum.

But alack, alas, the forum policies may not permit this --- I don't know.

Maybe, if a moderator got back to me with information that I could indeed also post my original post in any of those additional forums, of the Lagali Forums, I would be only too happy to do so. So that this very important, perhaps life saving post and topic, can then reach those who might only look in that other forum for answers or data such as that offered in this original post and thread of communications.

What do you say, Lagali moderators? What do you say Lagali community?

Respectfully contributed with the intention of creating the next, great, African Renaissance.

We don't have any rules against posting in multiple forums as long as its relevant and is not spam.

I have moved this thread to the Wellbeing section of the forum but left a link in the Talk of the day section.

Additional Data/Information:

Important: I have reappraised (I took yet another look at what I had already written on this subject, and I realized that to help others with the understanding of the essentials that are involved in the action of Vitamin D3, I would have to supply more detail about the activity or uses of Vitamin D3.

Firstly, let me return to the creation (or 'synthesis') of Vitamin D3 in the upper 'layer' (the upper layer of the human skin is actually composed of five layers each itself made of different cell types, which together, are called "the upper layer of the skin".

I shall not name the five component layers which make the 'upper layer' to the human skin. Simply because, I know from experience that once medical words are used --- which are almost always some Latin or Greek words --- things get difficult to understand (mostly because readers have so little experience with Latin and Greek when used to make medical words.) So, instead of speaking or using another language, I shall keep my message or this information in plain and simple English. I just want readers to be able to read and understand (perhaps with a good English dictionary to help), as quickly and as easily as possible. I intend for this information to be easily understood so that people can run, and think, and use it, straight away, for their best benefit.

The energy supplied by the Sun reaches through the top (the 'upper') layer of the skin, reaching in to its deeper fourth and fifth component layers.

Here, amongst specialist cells (which make up these particular component layers) whose purpose is to help in the creation of Vitamin D3, the sunlight's Ultra-Violet B energy component energises the waiting cholesterol (actually, a specialist type of cholesterol), to create Vitamin D3.

Now, I guess most of you would be surprised to hear that there is a type of cholesterol in the human skin, would you not? This is when I realised that I had to tell this part of the 'story' of Vitamin D3.

Cholesterol is a very, very important substance to the human body. It is used in the creation of such vital 'signalling' substances as testosterone and other glandular secretions which are vital for body processes.

In addition, and amongst many other vital uses of cholesterol: there is the fact that cholesterol is vital for specialist brain and nerve system cells.

One can begin to appreciate that a shortage, or a malfunction of the cholesterol 'bio-chemical pathway' (which means: the obtaining; the processing; the 'flavouring'; the transportation; the 'at the site of use', with other combinatory substances, of the cholesterol flavours) becomes a serious problem for the body.

If at any point (on the "cholesterol bio-chemical pathway") something is missing, or not in the correct proportions (combining amounts), then any one of the many uses that cholesterol is need by the body for, goes wrong. And, any one of these uses or body requirements going wrong is a serious, or a harmful, occurance of that aspect of the human body's functions or requirements. Which will, if not corrected in time, lead to disease. And, when it comes to disease, it is a very long list of potential disease (names.)

It can be understood, for instance, that insufficient cholesterol, in the body, could lead to "depression", since it is the case that brain and nerve function would sooner or later be disrupted. And, the choice would be: take an "anti-depressant" drug; take some "medicinal drug"; or find out what nutritional component/s are missing, or what nutritional component use (in the body) is going wrong.

When it comes to the creation of needed substances, or the use of substances within cells, by cells, here Vitamin D3 (surprisingly for many who will not know this) becomes an important player. Vitamin D3 is involved in the vast majority of cellular DNA reading by cell mechanisms, which must read the DNA instructions of how to make things or substances which are used by cells, organs and the rest of the body. These manufacturing mechanisms within cells need Vitamin D3. Inadequate Vitamin D3, and these genetic or DNA processes go wrong.

[*A major example of the importance of having sufficient Vitamin D3 is the body's Immune System*]

These facts made me realize that I then had to say a word or two (or three) about "fats". Yes, fat and fats. Especially, (and those of you who understood the above few paragraphs will understand), as fat or some particular kind of fat is important to the body's ability to create Vitamin D3 --- even if there was plenty of sunshine reaching into the skin's top layer. Cholesterol, you see, is obtained from fat or as itself, from meat and other protein sources. Because, Cholesterol is a Saturated Fat substance. [I provide more information about "Saturated Fats" further along this Post.]

Fat is important for many, many reasons, in the human body. We though, get most of our information about fat from the newspapers and the television (and/or ladies or gentlemen's fashion or gossip magazines). And, all these sources like to skew the story towards the shocking and the distressing, never towards simple passing on of information useful towards making people's lives better (by providing data which people can use to solve problems or difficulties which they or a loved one is experiencing, or could experience.)

Most people have been told that fats do one of two things: firstly, they (so they say) "keep the body warm in cold weather". I will not waste time going into that one. Secondly, it is often stated that "fats are used by the body as a source of (fuel) energy." Which is true enough and quite sensible.

What gets missed out is that fats are crucial for two very important (to the body's well being) processes:

1) specific fats are needed and used for the creation of cells, including the creation of immune system cells. People often forget that the body's immune system needs and uses Killer Cells. T-Cells and the like, which must be created somehow. Well, those cells have cell walls which are made of specific "fat" in a specific arrangement. So, all the body's cells are made using specific fats. Not just any available fat, "specific kinds of fats are used to make cell walls".

2) specific fats are used in hardly known "cell signalling" systems. [I say "hardly known" but in point of fact: medical businesses and the Pharmaceutical industry has over the past twenty years, been working very hard to get the knowledge of exactly what these "cell signalling systems" are and how they work. I understand that these interested groups have gone quite a long way to unravelling and decoding many cell signalling systems in the human body. What they will then use that knowledge for ... is anybody's guess.] Cell signalling systems are totally critical to the correct co-operation and running of specific cells and cell functions to meet body requirements.

It will be seen, with a little additional thought, just how important the "correct fats" are to the body's (so called) "immune system" --- which, as most people have found by now, is not so 'immune' a system, especially now we know the factors behind a correctly working "immune system" such as those discussed above.

In addition: is the great importance of the "correct fats" to what is called, by the doctors, the "inflammation" processes.

"Inflammation" means that when there is a problem with a cell, cells, bacteria, virii, infection, bruising, cuts, the body's Emergency Damage Control or Damage Handling Systems (and their cellular and bio-chemical signalling) go into action, and are followed by the body's Repair or Emergency Repair Systems. You can picture this as lots of cells going into intense activity, some of them actually moving from location to location; and all the while Emergency and complex bio-chemical and electrical signals being created and sent about the local or general body area which are demanding certain organs/cells/supplies and all the rest of what it should take to handle and to return the body to well being. That's "inflammation", as the doctors call it.

"Inflammation" then, is body organ, cellular, fluids, response to a source of danger to the body (injury, infection, poison, or 'pollution'.) And, can be understood with some careful thought and imagination, to be capable of being: (i) a response adequate to whatever threat or damage or problem is present, or (ii) an "over-the-top" response compared to the size of the danger or damage or problem to be handled, or (iii) non-existent or insufficient response to the danger, or damage, or problem needing to be handled.

The correctness of the body's (so called) "immune response" or its "inflammation response" is crucial. Too much, and the 'defenders' and/or 'repairers' or their chemical agents and related --- will actually cause damage to the body. Too little, and the invading hostile bacteria or virus has a field day, and is very happy; or the mal-condition continues unhandled. Just right, and the body 'cures' or 'heals' the problem, correctly. Too much 'response' usually, because of some pre-existing deficiency or absence of some necessary complimentary substance or activity, and then the body's normal workings are badly effected or even further damaged. An example of this is Insulin problems.

Yes, the body actually "cures" or "heals" itself. More completely: the body plus the (hidden) factor of the "mind", has the potential to cure or to heal any non-mortal malady (illness, "not well-ness", ... .) By implication, or by common sense: "healing" or "curing" does not occur when it is presumed or sold-off onto an individual that "the drug/medication, is what does it (what 'treats' the problem.)" A "belief" in this lie, is where too many "patients" have themselves gone wrong.

It can be seen then that an inadequate supply of the correct "fat" or "fats", and the body will not have enough materials for its immune system players and signalling. (Taken as just this single factor alone), that will be the structural reason for any serious or perhaps mortal, disease or chaotic condition. Otherwise, there will be an "on going" distressing condition.

Interestingly enough, specific fats are crucial for both the gonads (well, testicles) and for the Prostate Gland itself. Which is compounded by the fact that Vitamin D3 is dependant for its production, in sufficient quantities upon sufficient (fat sourced) cholesterol and sufficient sunshine (or a Tanning light/Bed which provides good Ultra-Violet B containing, quality light.)

It becomes wise or important then, for any dark skinned person who does not get enough direct Ultra-Violet B light (free when from sunshine; or paid for from the Tanning Shop; or their own private Tanning Light system), to get some. But, they should also be very sure that the food that they eat contains sufficient very specific fats (as well as all other health giving and body-operational nutrients).

So what are these "very specific fats"?:

Saturated fats: from meat, eggs, milk (Coconut milk is the top milk, for reasons which I have written further down), fish --- in fact, any good source of protein.

Essentail Fatty Acids: animal meat also provides plenty of Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acid, and some smaller proportion of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid. Cold water fish, and cold water "krill" are excellent sources of Omega-3 EFA. And, they also provide Omega-6, but not in overwhelming quantities, and they provide other nutrients too. Plants, such as the seeds called "Flaxseed" or "Linseed", are another excellent and bountiful source of 0mega-6 and Omega-3, plus other nutrients obtainable specifically from flaxseed.

The term "Omega-(number)", as in Omega-6, is a way for molecular chemists to say, "The first Carbon atom on this compound's molecule which does not have a Hydrogen atom attached to it, is found if you go to the 'end' [thus 'omega'] of the molecule and then count in, towards the 'start/head' of this molecule, some 6 Carbon atoms. At that 6th Carbon atom, is the first place where a Hydrogen atom could be attached, but there is not one there."

Similarly for Omega-3: it is the 3rd Carbon atom counting from the end of the "fat" molecule's chain of atoms, where the first Carbon atom that could take on a Hydrogen atom, is located. Such Omega-(number) descriptions are to do with the family of molecular behaviour which that molecule so named, belongs.

Omega-6 to Omega-3 Proportions: An essential point, an important point, about animal meat (and in particular "farmed" meat such as beef): Grass fed cattle beef contains an Omega-6 to Omega-3 proportion of about 2 to 1. Which is as close to ideal as can be obtained from beef. Grass fed beef is best. "Natural" beef.

But, Cereal fed animals (such as beef), contains a very disproportionate combination of Omege-6 to Omega-3 ranging from 4 to 1; to 20 to 1; to 41 to 1 ... which is just getting worse and worse for the human body. You see, the human body actually has a 1 to 1 ideal requirement of Omega-6 to Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids.

A major "reason" that farms feed cereals to livestock (beef, lamb, ...) is: that cereals "fatten up" the animal quickly. Somebody has sold consumers the idea that meat with plenty of fat in it is the best meat -- I understand that in europe, mothers make a "sauce" with the extra fat. But interestingly, these same mothers (and 'chefs') must "season" the 'sauce' or 'broth' to make it more edible. The fact is, much meat is sold by weight. The heavier the meat, the more money can be asked for it -- by the meat farmer/seller. "Fattening up" of meat animals is for the benefit of the farmer/seller's pocket. Healthy animals are "lean". And, healthy animals that are lean, as in nature, do have fat. But, in the correct proportions.

The "cereal fed" animals reflect in their own bodies the Omega-6 to Omega-3 proportions that are found in the cereals which they are given as "food"! Plus, the farmer or corporation then "fatten up" the "cereal fed" animal, just so they get more money. Unfortunately, the "fattening up" just serves to increase the body harmful Omega-6 to Omega-3 disproportion (or "imbalance".)

The moral is: Buyer Beware, or "You gets what you pays for." So you better get to know what you are buying before you buy it.

All Essential Fatty Acids are "essential", to the human body, because the body cannot make them. And so, they must be provided by what the individual eats (or drinks.)

Essential Fatty Acids are like this: a lengthy chaining (or joining up) of Carbon atoms. And each Carbon atom can have a Hydrogen atom attached to it --- a few of the Carbon atoms must not have a Hydrogen (for the substance to be an "Essential Fatty Acid").

At one end of this chain of Carbon atoms (plus quite a number of Hydrogen atoms attached to most but not all of these chained together Carbon atoms) is a special group of atoms obtained from water (Hydrogen and Oxygen).

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are then also called "unsaturated". Unsaturated means that the (molecule) of the fat can accept one or more Hydrogen atoms because one or more of the Carbon atoms that make their structural "chain" do not have any Hydrogen atom attached to them.

Essential Fatty Acids are actually "Poly-unsaturated". Poly-unsaturated means that their (molecules) can have more than one Hydrogen atom added to them. They are not full, or saturated, already, with Hydrogen atoms. They have more than one space available for a Hydrogen atom or more Hydrogen atoms, to join onto the un-Hydrogen attached Carbon atom members (un-Hydrogen-ated). Here "un-" means 'not' or 'no'.

A "mono-unsaturated" fat (molecule), means a fat (molecule) which can have just one additional Hydrogen atom added to it, and so "mono-" or one.

It is this natural "un-hydrogented" or "unsaturated" state of Essential Fatty Acids which make them capable of becoming 'rancid' or spoiled. And, it is for this factor that food manufacturers thought to "hydrogenate" (to add hydrogen atoms to natural unsaturated fats, natural to natural food sources), so that fats in meat, milk and such, would not "go off", become rancid, or spoil. They thus changed the natural state of the meat, milk ... into one not found in nature --- and therefore, not expected by the human body. A problem for human bodies was created. But, the "processed" food manufacturers did not take responsibility for their profit making error and its likely (and actual) consequences upon their "customers or consumers".

The "unsaturated" aspect of Essential Fatty Acids more importantly, gives them their special role and appeal for the human body.

Unsaturated EFA chains are "flexible". This is a very useful quality for when using these to build cell walls. You want flexible cell walls, for the cells that make up your body.

Saturated fats are not flexible. Saturated fats make for "stiff" cell walls. So, yes. The body out of desperation will use saturated fats to make cell walls. But, these cell walls will be rather inflexible for a purpose that really requires flexibility --- cell walls. I'm sure you can imagine how this might be. Or, you could imagine how it might not be so.

The incredible of value of saturated fats, because this is a very (to the body) necessary and crucial kind of fat, is that saturated fat is the fat used to make cholesterol. It is the fat which goes towards making the cell or body processes signalling substances which are produced by the body's glands and which are then put out into the blood stream to float to where these "chemical signals" activate or shutdown cellular/organ activity or systems/processes.

And the "Prostate" is a gland. So, it uses plenty of all three types of crucial "fats". And, it uses plenty of Vitamin D3.

This means, those who demand that you or that people give up eating saturated fats, they really don't know what they are talking about. If one follows their advice, a whole host of body/organ/cellular malfunction will occur (which will, if not corrected by the eating of saturated fats, result in premature death from some very some "strange" illnesses or diseases.)

Additionally, and very important with regards to Cancer:

1) insufficient Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids is a recognized factor to forms of cancer.
2) insufficient unsaturated fats is a contributor to cancer.
3) the proportion of Omega-3 to Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids should be 1 portion to 1 portion ( or 1:1). Unfortunately, so much "food" does not give this exact proportion of Omega-3 to Omega-6.

Canola oil, for instance, is the very best "vegatable oil" for Essential Fatty Acid proportions. And, Canola oil provides a proportion of Omega-6 2-parts to Omega-3 1-part. That's a 2:1 proportion. It is way better than any other "vegatable oil". And grass fed animals, such as cattle/beef have a near ideal Omega-6 to Omega-3 proportion.

The problem with Canola oil (and in fact, all "Cooking oils"): is that Canola oil when heated becomes an attractor of Hydrogen atoms (say, from water in food) and then combines with these Hydrogen atoms to form "Trans-fats".

Now, two things: first, "Canola oil" is a name that comes from "Canadian oil, low acid". Named this way because its Canadian nationality creators who produced the hybrid Rapeseed plant from which the Canola plant is derived from, sought create a plant (Rapeseed variety) which produced much less erucic acid. Erucic acid is associated with certain toxic effects when eaten. [for more information on this, please see the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canola. And, I must say, I do not hold Wikipedia as the cleanest, soundest source of knowledge, truth, nor wisdom --- from experience with Wikipedia over the years.] And, by the way: over 1 million tons of Canola oil are produced in Canada, every year.

The second thing: is that Monasanto ("Our Saint", "Our Saviour"?), that nefarious and secretive organization, which is on "a mission" to force us all to eat Genetically Modified Organisms --- which they create in a Frankenstein manner and which they will "own", in their own wisdom ... Monasanto, are right now (Year 2011) busilly developing and "marketing" a new GMO form of "Canola". Their intention is plain: they have seen that people will soon wake up to the need to get more "balanced" Essential Fatty Acids, and Monasanto mean to "corner the market on that one" regardless of GMO "side effects". Or, and much more likely: precisely because there will be GMO "side effects". Both upon people's long-term health and upon the edible oils "market". None to the benefit or good of "the people", though. Nor to the good or benefit of natural plants, natural animals, bees, birds, and "natural farming".

Getting the correct proportion of Omega-6 to Omega-3 (and in enough useful quantity for the body's needs) ... well, this sets quite a problem. Since the body really needs and uses them best in a 1:1 manner.

It is for this reason, that it can be understood that those people who suffer things such as Cancer of the Prostate can be seen as having had (in addition to a Vitamin D3 deficiency) a deficiency of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid. It is unlikely that they had a deficiency of Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acid because there is an over-supply of this particular EFA from that part of nature's bounty that humans take from to feed both themselves and their livestock. I am saying that individuals, on the whole, eat proportionately too much more Omega-6 than they do Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids. This then creates a stress in the body of insufficiency of Omega-3.

It then becomes necessary or wise that for one who wishes to be sure that they do not suffer the consequences of the almost guaranteed deficiency of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid, that they deliberately seek out sources of food or nutritional supplements which provide an abundance of Omega-3 Fatty Acid to be sure that the body gets sufficient Omega-3 EFA and, that the body gets enough Omega-3 EFA so that there can be a 1 to 1 (1:1) relation of proportion for Omega-3 and Omega-6. This might take some math (or arithematic) ability, too!

Then, the individual must, as best they can judge it, make sure that the body is being provided with sufficient (or an abundance) of both Omega-3 and Omega-6 for all the body's needs.

Now, that is the computation behind Vitamin D3 deficiency (or malnutrition). Sunshine and plenty of both saturated fats as well as the Essential Fatty Acids Omegas 3 and 6.

One more point I'd like to make: Coconut oil is becoming more and more recognized as providing the body with a form of Saturated fat which is very, very beneficial for the body.

The particular type of Saturated fat which Coconut oil (above any other food source so far discovered) provides are what are called Medium-Chain (length/size) Fats (or Triglycerides).

"Medium Length Chain/Medium-Chain" means that the length of Carbon atoms which are chained together to create the typical form or shape of a fat molecule, have a "medium" length or number of Carbon atoms (when compared to, say, "Long Chain" fats.)

A "Tri-glyceride" is a form of fat where three fat molecules are "yoked" together by a special molecule called "glyceride".

The human body has been found to be really quite happy digesting and metabolising Medium (length)-Chain sized Coconut oil fats, more than with other saturated fats (which the body has to do work with such as more bio-chemical processing, and/or "packaging".) And, Medium-Chain fats from Coconut oil have not been found to have any detrimental effect on the body, rather, they've been found very beneficial indeed.

A person, for instance, whose "inflammation" system is "out of proper alignment" may well benefit from the kinder effect upon the body's saturated fat processing systems, which comes from the Medium-Chain character of Coconut oil. Otherwise, the inflammation system may be aggravated by long-chain fats, but, this is a special malfunction condition.

To clarify: the main point of this addition of mine to the original post (of mine), is that an irreducible minimum of seven factors need to be looked at and handled (most likely), when ensuring that dark skinned individuals obtain enough sunlight (or Ultra-violet B ) so that their bodies can manufacture the vital, crucial Vitamin D3 (which is also crucial for the body's immune system's proper functioning.)

These "irreducible minimum" of seven factors essential for disease free health, are:

1) sufficient sunshine (or Ultra Violet B light). And, the dark skinned (the black skinned) need ten times as much sunshine as the light or white skinned, for their bodies to make the (same amount of) sufficient Vitamin D3, as would the light skinned person makes in 10 times less time. Simply because melanin screens out light or ultra-violet, rather effectively. And, that's fine for the blazing sun of Africa. But, not at all helpful for the dim, dull sunshine of the Northern climates. Otherwise: supplement with Vitamin D3 (and other beneficial nutrients) purchased from an ethical, trustworthy, honest, Nutritional Foods/Nutritional Supplements supplier. The average "Health Food Store" is to be treated with caution.

2) Sufficient saturated fats need to be eaten, as meat, fish, eggs, milk or whatever provides. The body needs to create valuable cholesterol (which is a substance which has been over-much maligned or demonised by inadequate understanding in the medical world these past twenty years) as well as other substances used in cellular signalling.

3) Most people, and probably right round the world, actually are right now suffering an deficiency of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids. Such individuals (unknowing but) having this deficiency, are having their cellular systems compromised, day by day. Leading to some serious and life damaging conditions. They need to supplement and/or increase their intake of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids. And get as close to the ideal 1:1 intake, in sufficient quantity, with Omega-6 which itself is very, very (actually, too plentiful.) The Essential Fatty Acids, of course, as we now understand, are used by the body to create healthy, well formed, correctly functioning cell walls as the body replenishes its cells or all types, including the immune system cells.

4) Anti-Oxidants: Vitamins C, A, E, Selenium (it may well be that there is a geographic based malnutrition of Selenium in Southern Africa at the very least and across more of Africa. But, this is a study either not done or it unknown to myself.) The top AntiOxidants are Vitamin C (it's almost guaranteed that most people in the World, let alone Black people will have a daily malnutrition of this, not nearly enough daily consumption of Vitamin C. See Linus Carl Pauling: Double Noble Peace Prize winner. For his work in Chemistry and the other for his work in creating world Peace.) The other top AntiOxidants are Astaxanthin (newly discovered antioxidant, actually, the strongest, most effective antioxidant currently known.) And, GliSODin: which is a special form of Superoxide Dismutase, which is the only antioxidant which the body itself seeks to manufacture. So, it is important.

Anti-oxidants are the substances with which the body seeks to "mop up" or "clean-up" the bits of matter (organic or otherwise) which are floating around the body's system, and which would otherwise interfere with or introduce chaos in the body's rather delicate cells, structures, systems, and signalling systems. One then, can understand why ensuring that one obtains sufficient anti-oxidants for their body (whether it is healthy or diseased), is essential for any chance of well-being and future health.

5)Finally, a warning about "Trans-fats". These are fats that are typically created by food manufacturers. Who make these on the idea that these "trans-fats" are fats that will "keep" and not get rancid in the processed food that they put on the shop food-shelf. The manufacturer wants to "make a food that will have a long or very long 'shelf-life'." That is: the manufacturer has decided it is profitable for him to change the nature of the food by replacing its natural fats, or by using "trans-fats" instead of natural fats, in the cooking or making of the food. So that the "food" can then last much longer because the trans-fats do not "go off" or become rancid as quickly as do natural fats.

Such Trans-fats have now been found to be a major cause of inflammation and related problems in the human body. Resulting in inflammation related diseases, such as cancer.

A "Trans-fat" is called a "trans- ..." because by a particular process, an ordinary fat can be changed by having its molecules have one or more Hydrogen atoms be moved from their "natural" position (as found in living organisms in nature), into an unusual or un-natural (hardly ever found in nature) other position which is described as being "across" or "on the other side" (thus: "Trans-", across) of where that Hydrogen atom would normally be. This, apparently slight alteration of the "shape" or "form" of a fat molecule, however, is not recognizable to the human body. And, the human body works with molecules by recognizing familiar (or "known") shapes of common to nature molecules.

Thus, the human body goes ahead and uses the "Trans-fat", mistakenly identifying it as a regular, natural, fat molecule. And yet, the Trans-fat has very different properties or behaviours to those of natural fats. These "different behaviours" later surface as things such as: cells with Cell walls which don't work properly in the activity of letting in nutrients. And, in the activity of cells wanting and trying to get wastes and valuable Cell Products, out of the cells, which then cannot do this.

Unfamiliar molecules, always, but always, give the human body tremendous problems. As these un-natural molecules have behaviour or characteristics which the body has no grooved-in method for dealing with or handling. This is the reason why "drugs" and other artificially created molecules eventually give "side effects" and more serious problems to the human body. An unfamiliar molecule type which imitates a familiar and found in nature molecule type, then causes problems (unexpected, unplanned for, un-prepared for problems) to the human body. And suddenly, there are "complications", "side effects" and worse.

Please recognize too, that there is some habit amongst Black people in America, The Caribbean and the UK to indulge in "fried" foods. Here the risk is the oil in which the food is cooked. Ranciditiy is just one danger out of many. I don't know if you've ever experienced food poisoning from "rancid cooking oil". It is one of the most painful experiences that I would not want to wish on anyone. Which just shows the effect of bad fats upon the body rather clearly.

But, "refined cooking oils" or "refined oils" have been "refined" not to make them taste better; and not to make them compliment the food better. Such cooking oils were refined because the manufacturer found that by "refining" (removing some of their natural components), the final "refined oil" would last much longer on the shelf without going rancid.

The problem with "refined oil" then, is significantly explained by the fact that a lot of good things which nature put in the UNREFINED oil have been removed, to achieve longer shelf-life. Removing these other good nutrients from the "cooking oils" has left them with too much Omega-6 essential fatty acid. Which when eaten will put an Essential Fatty Acids imbalance (Omega-6 compared to Omega-3) stress on the body. And, from accumulating research, this imbalance of these two substances, is major source of cellular dysfunction.

If one is to use cooking oil, or food dressing oil, use an unrefined (and therefore "Cold-pressed" or similar oil processing method) oil. An oil which still has all or most of what nature gave it.

Thus it is with drugs; thus it is with "Processed foods", thus it is with certain cooking methods such as "fried food". Unfamiliar, not usual, not "natural" molecules being introduced into the body --- the result? "Inflammation." Malfunction. Disease ("depression", "Attention Deficit Hyper-Active Disorder", diabetes, kidney failure, liver failure, stroke, heart failure, cholesterol "clogging up the arteries", ..., cancer, ...

You may have been surprised to see diabetes listed just above. But in all honesty, we are looking at one of the doggonedest bio-complexities that one could wish to observe concerning the functioning of the human body (or its malfunctioning). The number of factors, items connected to other items, where the action or non-action, the presence or abscence of one to the other to yet another is quite a system of cause and effect, where repercussions or unnoticed/unexpected consequences suddenly leap up into startled sight. We are confronting how the human body actually does things. We are looking at what it needs and uses to do the micro-second by micro-second activities which it must do to be in very good health and strength.

You see, another aspect to this complexity is Insulin, years of bad eating habits could have set up (and looking at the wide spread nature of Diabetes, recognized or ignored, ... habits that have set up) an on going "inflammation" which involves Insulin.

Something like inflammation (emergency) levels and use of Insulin would mean that corrective actions cannot be as straightforward as they would otherwise be. Insulin and such, in the bloodstream would tend to skew, or twist, or dampen the effects of natural corrective input into the body of logically needed substances. So, the Insulin level would have to be checked out. As would one or two other "inflammation response" or "inflammating making" substances.

6) The word which has become something of a dirty word Carbohydrates. Often expressed as "Simple Carbs/Carbohydrates, are bad because they too easily convert into sugar during digestion."

Then, that large input of 'sugar' into the body causes an Insulin reaction (Inflammation) as the body fights to get the sugar flowing through the blood system reduced to a "safe" and workable amount. Yet, after a short time, with the "Sugar rush" having been handled by an Insulin Inflammation response, the Blood sugar level falls off rapidly -- and the individual feels lethargic (without energy) or even, hungry. This up and down nature of the effects of (simple) carbohydrates upon the body and the consequent (emergency) Insulin Inflammation response, makes carbohydrates the troublesome and dangerous "food" that they are.

[Actually, and this is little reported: the human body cannot make Vitamin C. And yet, animals (related to the human body) do make their own Vitamin C. The human body must be provided Vitamin C through food.

And yet ... (And, this is the really interesting thing) ... and yet, it has been discovered that the Human body actually does have Genes that can make Vitamin C. The odd thing, the very odd thing is: that these Human Vitamin C making Genes are in a "Switched Off" state!

Now, you may well ask, "Why did he just talk about Vitamin C, when he had been talking about Carbohydrates?" And ... that's just the thing, see?

The Human body gets tremendous problems from Carbohydrates. It gets a kind of system insanity from eating and processing carbohydrates (especially "Simple Carbohydrates"). And yet, and yet, what other animals seem to do is: that they use Carbohydrates to make Vitamin C! And, Vitamin C is a very, very valuable Vitamin to organisms. [This one really makes one think ... For instance: "Why are the Genes that would do such a valuable job, and at the same time probably remove the Human body's 'Carbohydrates insanity' through the use of those Carbohydrates in the very much needed manufacture of Vitamin C ... Well, why are they switched off in the Human body?"

And, I am nothing if not brave: I would ask, "Who switched off these Vitamin C, Carbohydrate using Genes in the Human body? And, why did they do it?"

It (was done) obviously to cause as much degradation to the human body as possible. But, in a very hidden and complex manner".

That is what I am capable of thinking --- and, I'll let you into a secret: I know the "Who" and the "Why". But, it is explosive data. Of a nature which can only be given to those who show the potential and stability to reach what is called 'Enlightenment' or 'Arhat'. But, none of this takes anything away from what can be learned and used from what else I've written here.]

And, "Complex Carbs/Carbohydrates are 'all right'. Because they take longer for the body to break these down into sugars. So that when eaten, Complex Carbohydrates are believed to not overwhelm the body with a sudden rise in 'Blood sugar' levels. So, there is unlikely to be an Insulin Inflammation response situation."

Well, well. What do you guys make of that? Currently, one of the best and most workable way of discovering what a "Simple Carbohydrate" is, compared to a "Complex Carbohydrate" is something called the Glycemic Index (sometimes represented as a Glycemic Index Chart).

A "Glycemic Index" is a number which represents how quickly a particular Carbohydrate type is converted into sugar by the body's digestion system.

A Carbohydrate (or food) with a "High Glycemic Index", is a Carbohydrate (food) which converts (too) quickly into sugar during digestion. And so, overwhelms the body, "Sugar rush".

A Carbohydrate (or food) with a "Low Glycemic Index", is a Carbohydrate (food) which takes the body a longer time to digest into sugar form. And will have a non-overwhelming effect upon the body's Blood sugar level(so the current experts tell us.)

As a rule: I make sure I eat a High Protein Breakfast. I eat a High Protein Lunch. I eat a High Protein Dinner. I eat vegetables, especially those that have strong colour (I have found that White vegetables are not as nutritious as those that have colour.) I eat nuts and berries. I eat seeds. I drink good water into which I add mineral salts. I steer clear of Cooking oil fried food (I fry with Organic butter.) I don't eat margarine (the Trans-fats problem and the Omega-6 over-supply problem.) I steer clear of "Processed food", food that has been prepared by some company: they've mixed it, cooked it and all that ... and it is practically ready to just reheat and eat. I steer clear of Carbohydrates, particularly "Simple Carbohydrates". I keep my food, as best as I can, away from: plastics and aluminium. That's some of what I do. And oh, I don't eat that many "fruit". I also supplement a whole range of vitamins, minerals, (plant)nutrients, Vitamin D3, Omega-3 (through Fish Oil supplements, or Flaxseed oil supplements), every day. I am fortunate to have found for myself (and for my family), an Ethical, honest, very high quality supplier of Nutritional Supplements and Nutritional Information.

In addition: I have done something called The Purification Rundown which is a process or procedure lasting some weeks or months whereby I was got to clean out of my body all Bad fats; toxins; drug residues; radiation effects (including X-rays); and handled all nutritional deficiencies which had built up in the first 36 years of my life, through ignorance and reliance on a none-too-interested Medical monopoly. The Purification Rundown totally reset the health and well-being of my body to "Baby fresh", and I felt (and still do), really good, supple, energetic, quick-witted and tireless. I recommend The Purification Rundown to anybody who feels or realizes that the health and/or nutrition of their body is really not what it should be (and possibly, is giving one trouble or a 'lack of energy and vitality'.)

Here is a link to a reference on "High (Simple) Carbohydrate Diet Linked To Prostate Cancer": http://www.scienceda...71127161824.htm

7) Water. Now, some my be surprised that I would bring up the subject of water. But, water is the most essential fluid (aside from Mother's Breast Milk for babies) for the well being of the human body.

There are three problems with water:

i) availability of good water

ii) contamination of water by Pharmaceuticals (drugs, pesticides, herbicides [Weed Killer, and the like], growth hormones [fed to cattle/livestock to make them grow faster], Mind-bending, Brain re-wiring Psychiatric drugs, and so on that get in the water, even through being excreted by individuals who have been prescribed such drugs ...). An unexpected source of water contamination is Mining. Mining often uses such things as Mercury. Mercury is very toxic to living organisms. All these Man produced contaminants typically end up in the Water Cycle. On land, under-Earth, and in rivers and at Sea.

At some point, we drink the water. Well, how beneficial is the water that we are drinking? (When we are not drinking poisons like Alcohol and saying, "This stuff is good! It knocks my head right off my shoulders!")

iii) Inadequate Salt minerals in water: The human body actually needs water that has a content of Salt minerals. This is because the Human body is made of Cells which "evolved" from ancestor Cells which lived in the Oceans or Seas.

And, as can be easily confirmed, Sea water is "salty" with "mineral salts". That actual make-up of Sea water is (believe it or not), the make-up of the fluid which is in each and every one of your body's cells --- today!

This is why "Purified Water" by itself, is very bad for the Human body. Since "Purified" means that the water has had everything which is not Hydrogen-plus-Oxygen, removed from it. Therefore: "Purified Water" must have the "Salts" of certain non-toxic "Minerals" put (back) into it, for the resulting water to then be what the body actually needs and wants. Which is the nutritious water which gives the Human body the full nutritional benefits of satisfying a "thirst" or need of "water".

So, no, "water" is not just "water": it is specific beneficial salts (specific beneficial mineral compounds), plus "water". Then, the body gets full, healthy benefits of drinking "water".

This is why sometimes, someone will drink water and want to spit it out. Or, they will "not like the taste of (this) water". Or, they will still feel "thirsty" or "... something" even after drinking a Litre of water. It (the non-satisfactory "water") did not have either enough Salts (which are non-toxic and specific, mineral compounds), or it had contaminants.

Some people call the specific salt (mineral) compounds that must be in water (for it to be good water for the human body) ... they call these Salts "Electrolytes".

Electrolytes are Salts which when in the body, are used by Cells to control the flow or use of water, within and outside of, the Cells themselves. Specific minerals (metals in "electrified" form, thus "Electrolyte") are the signalling or "water use/flow" controlling agents, for the Human body's Cells.

All right: Given that "to watch for list", the basics covered in this posting hold true and good.

Here is a reference for out-proportionate Omege-6 to Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids and Prostate Cancer: http://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/10667474

If I've missed something out, please forgive me, I was aiming to keep this as direct and brief as possible.

Some one might mention "Psychosomatic". And, I'd agree that this is a valid point. It is known that the source of at least 75% of Man's disease or illness is Psychosomatic (or psychosomatic) in nature. For those who don't know that meaning of the word psychosomatic, here is what it means: the "psych-o-" part comes from the Greek word "Psyche" which means mind (or spirit); and the "-somatic" part comes from the Greek word "soma" which means body.

Psychosomatic is read as meaning: "what the mind is doing to the body."

This makes sense, especially if one sees that the person had to (for some reason) 'decide' to eat that kind of food that made him in that way ill. It is not that the food made him ill, that was just a consequence of him (the mind: he got 'the idea' to do that) having gone and eaten that food. Do you see this? I am sure that you do. All right.

Medicos do not handle the psychosomatic part of illnesses. They therefore handle the symptoms, only.

Given that the illness is psychosomatic in origin and nature, medicine then, only handles the "effect" or effects of an illness. Medicine would then, be seen to fail in handling or addressing the "cause". Since cause brings about effect.

Then, there is but one workable solution: that is, get him to read the book Dianetics, by L. Ron Hubbard. It is the book to teach what psychosomatic is, and, more importantly --- how to cure, completely, psychosomatic sicknesses. This I have seen for myself to great results. To actual cures and therefore to actual full healing.

@ African Renaissance

It becomes wise or important then, for any dark skinned person who does not get enough direct Ultra-Violet B light (free when from sunshine; or paid for from the Tanning Shop; or their own private Tanning Light system), to get some. But, they should also be sure that the food that they eat contains sufficient very specific fats.


I believe that this issue about lack of sun is a serious one, not only physical but also spiritual. It can make us feel depressed, tired and feel downtrodden and lethargic.

All Essential Fatty Acids are "essential", to the human body, because the body cannot make them. And so, they must be provided by what the individual eats (or drinks.)

...

It then becomes necessary or wise that for one who wishes to be sure that they do not suffer the consequences of the almost guaranteed deficiency of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid, that they deliberately seek out sources of food or nutritional supplements which provide an abundance of Omega-3 Fatty Acid to be sure that the body gets sufficient Omega-3 EFA and, that the body gets enought Omega-3 EFA so that there can be a 1 to 1 (1:1) relation of proportion for Omega-3 and Omega-6. This might take some math (or arithematic) ability, too!

...

One more point I'd like to make: Coconut oil is becoming more and more recognized as providing the body with a form of Saturated fat which is very, very beneficial for the body.

...

These three points are:

1) sufficient sunshine. And, the dark skinned (the black skinned) need ten times as much sunshine as the light or white skinned, for their bodies to make the (same amount of) sufficient Vitamin D3, as would the light skinned person makes in 10 times less time. Simply because melanin screens out light or ultra-violet, rather effectively. And, that's fine for the blazing sun of Africa. But, not at all helpful for the dim, dull sunshine of the Northern climates.

2) Sufficient saturated fats need to be eaten, as meat, fish, eggs, milk or whatever provides. The body needs to create valuable cholestrol (which is a substance which has been over-much maligned or demonised by inadequate understanding in the medical world these past twenty years) as well as other substances used in cellular signalling.


What do you advise to the African person like me that lives in an environment where the sun hides from us (UK) and eats a non meat, non fish and non dairy diet?

Some one might mention "Psychosomatic". And, I'd agree that this is a valid point. It is known that the source of at least 75% of Man's disease or illness is Psychosomatic (or psychosomatic) in nature.

75% is a high figure. I accept that the mind is capable of healing the body, but is the same true of willfully poisoning it? When women are pregnant they often crave foods containing exactly the right nutrients to secure theirs and their babies survival. In your opinion what conditions would make the mind override its basic instinct for survival (healthy living)?

Dear Toyin and my fellow Ligali members;

Please forgive me for having taken so long to respond to Toyin's very valid, very well thought out and concisely communicated points of further interest.

For my sins: I was tied up helping my beloved daughter to handle an unpleasant school situation where she has a psychotic child in her class {the source of distress, chaos, distrust, fear, confusion, threat and other undesirable consequences.} Which affect not just my child, but the rest of the class too. But, this may be a subject upon which I may post about in a new thread.

Now, I actually want to beg off from replying Gentleman and astute Scholar Toyin. I have arrived here at Ligali, and the time is past 4 in the early morning. I must beg off to bed. Please bear with me while I get some recuperation. In this wise, I shall be all the fresher and the more collected of mind and spirit, to provide Gentleman Scholar Toyin with the attention and (seriousness) focus to address the issues which his very understanding and intelligent points raise.

I had to explain my quiescence, my absence. Now, I explain my time-lengthiness of responding adequately. Again, I ask your tolerance. I shall return as quickly as I can. And do my duty.

Respectfully requesting your understanding, Phoenix: African Renaissance.

No apologies needed.

Am sorry to read about your daughters experiencing.

Please don't feel pressured to respond, only do so when you have the time.

ps. The 'astute Scholar' is cool but as Fela once sang 'I no be gentleman at all 0 , I be Africa man... original'. :D

@ Toyin

You have asked some demanding questions (see quotations. This is my first time to attempt to use the quote device. So please be tolerant of any mis-step that I might make with it).

I will do my current best to provide a helpful response.


@ African Renaissance



I believe that this issue about lack of sun is a serious one, not only physical but also spiritual. It can make us feel depressed, tired and feel downtrodden and lethargic.


I entirely empathise with your thoughts and feelings. What you express is true. The only workable help which I can recommend to handle the consequence of "lack of sun" (at any time of the year, but particularly during the gloomy, dark winters) is: Supplement with a high quality Vitamin D3 supplement. But, I cannot confirm whether such a supplement as I use, is Vegan or not. Perhaps the supplier can help you with this. And of course Cod Liver Oil is out of the question for you.

What do you advise to the African person like me that lives in an environment where the sun hides from us (UK) and eats a non meat, non fish and non dairy diet?


Ah! But, there is another solution! Get yourself a well-made Ultra-Violet Tanning Lamp. Make sure it produces Ultra-Violet B (it can produce Ultra-Violet A), but, it must provide Ultra-Violet B -- this is essential. It is the energy type needed by the body to create Vitamin D3. Or, attend a Sun-Tanning Bed shop. Where one can get Ultra-Violet B from the tanning beds.

Then, once or more times a day (particularly during Winter), you enjoy its light up to the hour or so which your body will need of that light shining directly onto a large expanse of your body's skin (so, not just the face and bare arm) to create sufficient Vitamin D3.

As for providing your body with sufficient Saturated Fats, to provide the Cholesterol to be converted into the Vitamin D3 under the Ultra-Violet B lamp: I am not well read on Vegetarian or Vegan food sources for Saturated Fats. Though, I do know that Coconut oil will provide excellent Saturated Fats.

75% is a high figure. I accept that the mind is capable of healing the body, but is the same true of willfully poisoning it? When women are pregnant they often crave foods containing exactly the right nutrients to secure theirs and their babies survival. In your opinion what conditions would make the mind override its basic instinct for survival (healthy living)?


Firstly: with regard to your consideration that 75% is a high figure, consider the situation in current medicine. There appear to be more and more and more (new) illnesses or disease. Almost as if there is an near infinite variety or range of diseases.

Now, this is most odd if one considers that there are only a limited/finite number of pathogens that have any sort of link with disease. And, even then medical researchers have yet to factually establish how it is that such pathogens can cause a Human body to become diseased! And this is true.

This explains why one person can get Influenza and yet, the person standing next to them does not. And, even if the person who does not can be examined and be found to have the same Influenza pathogen in his sinuses or blood (and here, let us pretend that it is a 'New Strain' of pathogen), and still he will not have the illness. This kind of eventuality is well recorded in medical literature. And, it is the reason that a Doctor cannot say truthfully what the cause of a disease is. Rather, if you question a Doctor carefully, he will instead state that "Well, the symptoms are ... ." Why the 'syptoms' arose -- is anybody's guess.

Doctors will, when pushed, explain the "cause" as "stress". Thusly, doctors have come to accept the proposition presented centuries ago, that the main cause of disease is an "unwell mind". In other words, Psychosomatic causes to disease.

The ultimate test of this finding is, "Can the individual be cured, guaranteed, by the ministrations of the doctor?" The answer, if you demand this off any doctor is: "We cannot promise a cure. We can only do our best given the current level of medical knowledge." In other words, the Doctor knows enough to to know that the cause of most disease lies outside the purview of medicine, but rather, lies in the purview of Mental Science and practice.

However, the Mental Sciences and practices have been suborned by the charlatans and quacks who call themselves Psychologists and Psychiatrists. These have delivered nothing but chaos and false data, and pseudo-science to Man's quest to understand his own Mind. Reference: The Citizens Commission On Human Rights at: http://www.cchr.org .

Thus medicine, not wishing to hand over authority to an extremely harmful pseudo-science (psychiatry/psychology), would rather talk in non-revelatory terms such as: "We treat illness. We do surgery. We provide drugs and physio-therapy". And so, illness numbers and types continue to mount and multiply, despite (probably) trillions of dollars worth of "research" into "Mental Health/Psychiatric/Psychological Research", Pathology and the "causes of disease".

In fact, every so often, the medico's (or some Pharmaceutical funded medical reserchers) will wheel out the now rather tired cliche proposition that some disease or other "... is caused by genetics." They will assert this about a genetically complete individual who has some (new/old) type of disease. And yet, their assertion truly only applies to the highly unusual (amongst Human beings) Genetic Insanity case. Which is always a very obvious kind of case from birth, or even, from before birth (with current diagnostic technologies, such as Ultra-Sound scanners).

The Genetic Insanity case is born very obviously lacking in some body part or body facility.

So, Genetic theories of the cause of disease (in the case of Genetically Complete individuals) are well known for being quack pseudo-science. Such clever, sophistry of seeking out "genetic causes" is really a fine way of saying, "If I can fool you, if you are desperate enough, if you are stupid enough (and, if you are trusting enough; since you are blinded by all the medical Jargon which we throw at you): why then give me millions of your hard earned money for me to spend (on my pseudo-science) -- thank you very much!" And of course, billions of Pounds Sterling (or Dollars) later, still no "cure". Lots of "We need just, maybe ... another £150,000,000 and twenty more years ... to, er ... to iron it all out and will have a Miracle Genetic Treatment for you, ... by then."

Well, some people suffer fools gladly and very, very expensively both in terms of money cost and cost in lives or health. Now, onto the next of (Toyin's) requests:

And, keeping in mind the proposition from Toyin that: "I accept that the mind is capable of healing the body, but is the same true of willfully poisoning it?" [The underlining is mine.]

One of the most surprising discoveries of recent times has been of the technique called "Mesmerism" (named after a man, Anton Mesmer, who was the first publicly acknowledged practitioner of the rather arcane art.) Which we nowadays call Hypnosis.

It has been shown that the through the technique of Hypnosis a practitioner (called a Hypnotist) can get his subject to do or be things which clearly are an "override" of the mind's "basic instinct for survival".

Now, the unknown has been: "Are there other times or other conditions when a similar effect as that achieved by a Hypnotist upon his subject, is somehow effected upon the mind of the individual, but without the presence or intervention of a Hypnotist?"

It has since been proven that such indeed does happen. Mesmer himself introduced variations of how the mind's effort to survive can be otherwise overridden. For example: Mesmer would apply a strong magnetic to people who had stomach aches. And, they (apparently, as reported by Mesmer and others) would cease to have a stomach ache.

Now, you may say, "How does that demonstrate that the mind's 'instinct for survival' has been overridden?" The fact of a stomach ache is a mental situation and a physical situation telling of some threat to the organism. If, by the introduction of a magnet, the mind does indeed stop reporting a stomach ache, well then, we know that without an actual conscious awareness of having brought about a "healing", the subject is actually in confusion about whether or not the threatening problem which was bothering their body, has actually been addressed or not. So, that would be an example of a mind being overridden.

A truly intriguing fact about Anton Mesmer is: that he did not discover Hypnosis (which explains why "Mesmerism" is no longer called that but has since then been given a technical name.)

Mesmer actually learned from practioners of (Hypnosis) in the Far East. Such as the Yogis and other practitioners who have known of it and who have experimented with it, and who have used it as part of spiritual and physical research and practice for many centuries.

Now, this last fact should awaken one's mind to several possibilities:

i) did the ancients discover that there indeed was a most remarkable characteristic about the mind which lent it to states of Hypnosis or trance, which were contra the purpose of the Human mind of addressing survival. And thus, such trances would (momentarily?) disable the mind from its survival duties?

ii) do such groups as that group known in the West (and mistakenly, I might add) as "Buddhists" ... what do such groups know about this (flaw) or characteristic of the mind to sometimes shut down from its guiding survival duties?

I myself have learnt that such as the practitioners of "Dhamma" (which is what Buddha called his lineage of teachers and teachings, and not "Buddhism" as the West later called such), knew such advanced techniques of mind that what Mesmer and Yogis do look like party tricks by comparison. And yes: the practioners of Dhamma know that the Human mind often (and they say, "Too often ...") fails in its duties of guiding survival by becoming overridden by shock or some other strong (unpleasant, or unwanted) experience or body condition.

A specific example of such "shock" or "strong (unpleasant, or unwanted) experience are such things as: Car accidents; fights; accidents; deaths of loved ones; ... All these (and more) serve to cause the mind to (momentarily ... and then later, chronically) abandon its full survival duties.

Any person who has ever had a surgery experience or some strong illness; or some shock physical injury ... if you asked them afterwards what they remember of that painful experience and shock, they will look at you blankly and confess that they actually are not able to remember anything except that which happened just before the painful incident or what happened some time afterwards --- when they had regained what is referred to as "consciousness".

Psychosomatic illness: the overriding of the mind's happier basic survival instinct, then, falls under this category of painful, shock, threatened survival incidents. Wherein the mind has somehow been got to give up on its duty of ensuring total survival, but rather the mind continues only some smaller sub-set of its survival duties or potentialities. Which then is the seat and source of all that afterwards becomes disease, illness, or mental/emotional problems that are psychosomatic in cause.

Having viewed the above data, it becomes clearer that the mind in abandoning some proportion of its survival duties is not actually "... willfully poisoning it?" (where "it" is the individual's own body.)

No, it can be more clearly understood that some extent or consequence of some kind of Hypnotic effect is actually forcing or governing the mind to be "unaware" of the full facts, factors or nature of a survival threatening situation, incident or habit.

The word Hypnosis actually means being in a condition or state which is like being asleep. And yet, we see the afflicted, the ill, the lame walking around. Well, are they "asleep"? Well, just as with a real Hypnotist's subject where the subject is on stage and the Hypnotist is getting him to do peculiar or self-degrading things, which the subject/he is not even aware of as occuring even as he, like a doll, goes ahead, goes through the motions and actions, and does these things -- the answer is: No, they are not completely asleep. They are to some measurable degree, asleep even though their bodies are going through motions which most us presume indicate a fully alert waking state.

Recall that Albert Einstein (and, I am not a fan of his, particularly), he said, "We only use 10% of our mind." He was pointing up this very fact: the un-used 90% is all the mind potential which has been put to sleep -- this Hypnotic state.

It is this "unconsciousness" to which the "poisoning" or the permitting of harm to come to the individual and his body is derived. He is asleep. His mind is asleep on more than several fronts. He is using only 10% of his mind. Only 10% of his actual mind is functional. Asleep-ness, unconsciousness, takes the rest.

One other factor is False Data. Lies, False Data, or No Data also act to cause the mind, the individual, to make serious errors of judgement which bring harm to himself and his body.

The book DIANETICS by L. Ron Hubbard thoroughly describes Psychosomatic illness in plain English and provides the means for obtaining thorough relief from these, and more. I highly recommend it. Dianetics wakes individuals up by giving them back increasing portions of their "asleep" 90% of their own minds.

Well, I hope to have provided a some valuable insight, knowledge and useful facts. I hope you find it so.

Respectfully, African Renaissance.
