Sugar and cancer

The Guardian newspaper today is reporting on an important study carried out in France that has shown a link between sugar consumption and the development of cancer. Most importantly, the authors of the study make it clear that the problem is not just about sugary drinks, colas, lemonade etc, but fruit juices as well. It isn't important that the sugar is added to the drink, simply that it is present in large amounts. The article includes the comment:

'The study, carried out in France, is the first substantial piece of research to find a specific association between sugar and cancer.'

This is an odd comment to make, as the link between sugar and cancer has been known scientifically for nearly a century. As I've explained in an earlier blog article, the great German physiologist, Otto Warburg, made it clear that the development of cancers in the body is fundamentally driven by the anaerobic breakdown, or fermentation, of sugars. This is why people who follow a ketosis diet, consisting of fats and protein only, have shown significant success in beating cancer, particularly brain tumours.

Hopefully, the French study will raise the issue of sugar and cancer. In addition, the tactic of fast food companies to supply fruit juices as a 'healthy' alternative to colas will be seen for what it is; a charade. There's nothing wrong with eating some fruit in season - you're consuming fibre with the fruit sugar, lessening its effect on the body - but drinking fruit juices needs to be seen as akin to drinking alcohol, only without the intoxication.

Fritz-Albert Popp, biophysics and beings of light

I've posted quite a few Robert Sepehr videos on this website, as he does produce some very interesting ones, and here's another. This one's about Fritz-Albert Popp and biophotons. Fritz-Albert Popp was a brilliant biochemist who investigated how living creatures give off and receive light. I talked about him extensively in one of the earliest articles on this website that looked into homeopathy. Biophotons are a crucially important part of biology and they come with a paradox, for the biophotons that are produced and passed on within living systems are extremely coherent. In other words, they are highly organised, but if that's the case, what is organising them? According to thermodynamics, everything in our universe should become more disordered over time, and that applies to light signals just as much as sandcastles. And yet, as Popp explains in the video, these biophotons are highly ordered and seem to act like complex signalling messages and chemical reaction controllers. For more on that topic, I recommend you read my book 'how science shows that almost everything important we've been told is wrong.' Here's the video:

Methane time-bomb short film

This is another blog article about climate change. To be honest, even my heart sinks when I write another climate change article; it would be great if I didn't have to keep blogging about climate change. Instead, I could talk about fun things like Bill and Ted 3, or things that benefit our immediate lives, like reducing our grain and sugar consumption to help our brains, or understanding how fluoride doesn't help our teeth in the long run, but I can't because nothing is as important as climate change. What's more, it is most definitely worth blogging about, and talking about, because we can all collectively make a difference by changing our lifestyles. We also know how to do it; we simply adopt livestyles in which we burn less fossil fuels. If we do, then we will make a difference and we'll know, at the end of our lives, that we did the right thing. It certainly isn't an easy thing to do, and I think we need to change our mindset to make it work successfully, but It's still absolutely necessary.

For anyone who needs reminding of how grim our future will be if we don't make drastic changes, here's a good short video about the ticking methane bomb.

Some readers may be concerned that beneath the video on YouTube is the comment 'RT is funded wholly or in part by the Russian Government'. This, in truth, is irrelevant, as the science in the video is factually correct, according to a vast number of scientists and my own research on the subject. I wanted to mention this because I am concerned that such an addition to the video's web-page could make some people, particularly in the West, believe that climate change is a false fact cooked up by the Russians. I wonder if the people who instigated these sorts of warnings thought about this consequence?

'Grain brain' book review

Grain Brain is a book all about our grain diet, and how eating lots of grains is a bad idea for us, as human beings. I enjoyed reading it. Dr David Perlmutter clearly knows his stuff in the book, as he is a doctor and nutritionist. He also explains the issues well, in clear prose that includes interesting details and a good balance between the science and the practical consequences.

In his book, Dr Perlmutter explains that we are not built to consume grains. This is hardly surprising, since the practice of growing large amounts of grain to feed a human population is only a very recent development, at least in terms of the human species. Before we started growing grains, in around 4,000 BC, we existed on a hunter-gatherer diet. This would have consisted of very fresh meat, fresh fish, nuts, leafy greens and seasonal berries. We would have eaten carbohydrates, in the form of tubers, but we would have eaten hardly any grasses, including wheat, rye, barley and rice. Our digestive systems are therefore set up to digest a non-grain diet. Since civilisation began, the sudden influx of large amounts of starch into our diet, which is quickly broken down into sugars in the gut, as well as us consuming actual sugars, especially in the form of concentrated fruit sugars, has been a shock to our digestive system.

Our body has a Hell of a time dealing with carbohydrates and sugars. Because meals heavy with these foods causes a rapid increase in the amount of sugar in our blood, our body has to work hard to remove the sugars from our blood system. It does this by pumping out insulin, which shepherds the sugar into our cells. But our cells can only take in so much sugar, and they soon begin to close the gates to more sugar coming in. As a result, even though our pancreas has pumped out lots of insulin, the sugar hasn't left our blood system, which is bad for our body as sugar is a toxin. As a result, not only can we get diabetes, we can also get blood pressure problems, heart problems, circulation problems etc etc. Read More...

Save the planet, ditch the mindset

This week, Greta Thunberg visited London to speak to the Extinction Rebellion protesters who had been peacefully disrupting key sites in London in order to raise awareness of climate change. Greta has been doing an amazing job as a spokesperson for the climate change issue and her direct and straightforward speeches have been refreshing and invigorating to hear. Greta has been telling everyone that governments and corporations must start making major changes in order to save our planet, and ourselves, from the catastrophic effects of a warming planet.

This is all good stuff but Greta hasn't really talked about what I think is the biggest obstacle to any meaningful progress on climate change reduction and our mass conversion to a sustainable society; the current human mindset.

I've mentioned before in articles on Climate Change that the biggest obstacle to stopping climate change is a mental one, for every indication of success for a person in our civilised world is synonymous with having a big carbon footprint. Owning a big car, owning a big house, going on holidays abroad, owning a large dog, flying everywhere, owning lots of foreign goods, having many children, all these things are the trappings of a 'successful' life. In comparison, all the things that go with a sustainable lifestyle, cycling, second-hand clothes, mended clothes, local holidays, one child or less, no flying, all these things are synonymous with the life of a low-achiever, a loser. Greta therefore has the unenviable task of telling literally billions of people that they must live the life of a social failure, a bum, in order to hopefully save their planet.

Freemasonry and cooking

Robert Sepehr produces many interesting videos on Youtube, several of which I've posted on this website in the past. He focusses on a variety of topics, including underground civilisations, unusual bloodlines, historical cults and related material. Today, I'm posting a video he created of a French film, 'Forces Occultes' or Occult Forces - subtitled 'The mysteries of Freemasonry unveiled for the first time on the screen'. It was released in 1943 and was the last film to be directed by ex-Freemason Paul Riche (the pseudonym of Jean Mamy). According to Sepehr, Mamy was later executed for revealing Freemasonry secrets. To quote from Sepehr's post, 'the film recounts the life of a young member of parliament who joins the Freemasons in order to relaunch his career. He thus learns of how the Freemasons are conspiring to encourage France into a war against Germany'. Here it is:


Nikola Tesla and sub-quantum kinetics

I am a big fan of Nikola Tesla, the famous engineer, physicist and inventor who developed the AC motor, among many other things, during his time in New York at the end of the nineteenth century. He was truly a genius.He was so gifted that he was said to be able to run experiments in his head and watch for any wear and tear, or problems in their design. He produced important, ground-breaking inventions and technologies but he also investigated and developed ideas that went counter to the current scientific orthodoxy. There is evidence that this wasn't well-received amongst the rich and powerful of the United States, and Tesla ended his life in poverty. According to reports, after he died, the FBI raided his rooms and took away all his papers. They eventually returned them to Tesla's solicitor, minus several key boxes of diagrams and notes.

One such anomalous physics phenomena that Tesla was very interested in was that a high-energy electrical discharge seemed to produce a gravitational wave. He knew this because the discharge occurred in a vacuum chamber and yet he felt the gravitational shock-wave while standing nearby, discounting the possibility that it was caused by an air-pressure wave. According to standard physics, such behaviour should be impossible, as charge and gravity are officially not related. There is evidence that Tesla's insight about charge and gravitational waves was picked up by Russian scientists, among others, described in the very interesting book ''the scientist, the madman, the thief and their lightbulb'.

Bill and Ted 3!!

As a bit of light relief in between blogs about our grim future, I wanted to talk about something totally amazing (possibly) that might happen soon; Bill and Ted 3!

I have always been a fan of Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, which is definitely one of my all-time favourite movies, as well as Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. They came out nearly thirty years ago but Bogus Journey is still as fun now as it was when it first appeared. Now, supposedly (unless it gets delayed again), there will finally be a third Bill and Ted movie. Here's a quick trailer from the guys:
