Starving Cancer & Exposing Cholesterol Surprises in On Sale Choices

March 15, 2015
 Monticello, Missouri
Dear John,
Happy St. Patrick's Day!  
We celebrate St Patrick's Day on March 17 and the life of a first Bishop of Ireland born in the late 4th century who is still revered world wide today

Rolling our minds back to the fifth century, we can only admire the diet of grass-fed dairy, beef, lamb, and the free range chickens on the farms of that era.  Plus the bounty of the sea from all four shores of Ireland.

Today it is only fitting  Dr. Sears discusses the myth of cholesterol in his outstanding article. Followed by Kelley Herring explaining how cancer starves on the high fat/protein ketogenic diet.  Honey and cherry free pemmican is a great way to start your ketogenic day!

We encourage you to read the article below on how your taste buds react to food. You will be stunned how fast taste receptors sense, and what the critical wow trigger is for your brain.

Old news....... for those of you caught in the shipping saga generated by the perfect Fed Ex winter storm on March 4th and 5th, we apologize for the travesty this created.  We are doing our best to make this situation right with partial credits and complete new shipments.  Please let us know if we have missed an email or voice mail.  Even old hands in Fed Ex have told us this was the worst delay they have ever seen.  Orders this week will be back to full speed.

We are celebrating St Patrick, and the first warm week of March, with ribeyes and NY strips on sale.  Fire up the grill for warm weather grilling and enjoy grass-fed ketogenic fats and proteins.

Cholesterol: I Told You So!



By: Dr. Al Sears, MD


Big Brother has finally come around to what I've been telling my patients for almost 30 years - stop worrying about cholesterol in your diet.  


The influential Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, the nation's top nutrition panel, has now admitted they were WRONG about cholesterol. And they have now proclaimed this former dietary evil as no longer a "nutrient of concern."1

They were slow - and, of course, wrong for decades - but at least they got there in the end.

That means eggs are back on the menu for millions of Americans - yolk and all - although my patients have been enjoying their eggs fried, poached, scrambled, deviled and made into omelets, flans and quiches for years, without the slightest negative impact on their health.

Big Brother has also deemed other "high-cholesterol" foods, like duck, goose, liver, lobster and shrimp, to be no longer a public health issue - not that they ever really were, except in the bureaucrats' junk science-fueled imaginations.  




Editors Note:  Dr. Al Sears, M.D. is a board-certified clinical nutrition specialist. His practice, Dr. Sears' Health & Wellness Center in Royal Palm Beach, Fla., specializes in alternative medicine. He is the author of seven books in the fields of alternative medicine, anti-aging, and nutritional supplementation, including The Doctor's Heart Cure. To get his free special report on the proven anti-aging strategies for building a vibrant, disease-free life, go here now. You'll learn how to stop Father Time without giving up the foods you love.

Starve Cancer with this Controversial "Old" Diet

By: Kelley Herring, Healing Gourmet 



A recent report from the World Health Organization states that the number of cancer cases worldwide is expected to surge by 57 percent over the next twenty years.

For many, this will mean painful, expensive (and potentially deadly) treatments with chemotherapy and radiation. On the other hand, many others will choose a more natural approach to treat and prevent cancer... one that is meant to boost the immune system, curtail the proliferation of cancerous cells, and starve those cells of the very fuel they need to grow.

And one of the most effective natural approaches for doing this is the ketogenic diet. It is certainly not the only thing that should be included in a cancer-fighting protocol, but science has proven that it can be a very important part of one.

Mind Reading: Spatial Patterns    of Brain Activity Decode what People Taste

A team of researchers from the German Institute of Human Nutrition in Potsdam and the Charité University Hospital in Berlin have revealed how taste is encoded in patterns of neural activity in the human brain. Kathrin Ohla, the lead researcher on the team, said: "The ability to taste is crucial for food choice and the formation of food preferences. Impairments in taste perception or hedonic experience of taste can cause deviant eating behavior, and may lead to mal- or supernutrition. Our research aims to extend the understanding of the neuronal mechanisms of taste perception and valuation. This knowledge is essential for the development of strategies to moderate deviant eating behavior."


The study was published in Current Biology.


Tastants in the mouth activate specific receptors on the tongue corresponding to each of the basic tastes: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and savory (umami). The signal is then transduced further to the brain. How the peripheral signal is used by the central nervous system to encode taste quality is largely unknown.


In the study, participants discriminated between sweet, salty, sour, and bitter tastants while their brain activity was recorded with electroencephalography (EEG), a method that measures minuscule electrical signals generated by billions of neurons in the human neocortex with millisecond resolution. Different tastes evoked different dynamic patterns of electrical activity. A machine learning algorithm could be trained to discriminate between these patterns. Thus, given a piece of data, the algorithm could decode from the pattern of brain-wide activity which taste a participant had received in that moment. This form of "mind reading" even made it possible to decode which of four tastants participants thought to have tasted when they were, in fact, incorrect: tastes that participants frequently confused with each other (e.g. sour and salty) were also frequently confused by the algorithm.


Kathrin Ohla said: "We were surprised to find that the onset of this decoding coincided with the earliest taste-evoked responses, within only 175 milliseconds, suggesting that quality is among the first attributes of a taste represented in the central gustatory system."

Modified Fasting and 9-12-25 Advanced Arm Training Videos for Rapid Fat Loss  


By: Scott Mendelson



My wife and I both need to lose 15 pounds of body fat in 30 days before a big trip.  I know that is not a lot of time, but our fat loss progress has stalled even though we have been following a great nutrition plan perfectly.  I would like to improve my arm size and my wife wants to improve her arm definition.  Help!

Roger it is time to make strategic changes to your nutrition, weight training and interval sprint plan to accelerate fat loss in time for your trip.  I would agree that your nutrition plan started Jan 1 was pretty good, but like all static plans it became stale around the 6-8 week mark for many reasons. 

The 9-12-25 weight training routine will not only improve the size of your "guns" but also burn fat fast due the metabolic conditions created with high density factors.
