(Natural News) Scientists continue to genetically engineer plants that are becoming less and less like anything that nature ever intended, and in the process, many of them are overlooking some very useful natural alternatives.

One such solution was recently discovered by researchers at Japan’s RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS). After studying a new biological pathway that is activated in plants during droughts, they found that they could give plants a higher tolerance for drought simply by growing them in vinegar.

The study, which is published in Nature Plants, was led by Jong-Myong Kim and Motoaki Seki. The researchers looked into the mutation in the plant enzyme HDA6 to determine the mechanisms behind its protective effect on plants in drought conditions.

They found that the biological pathway that is activated in these plants produces acetate, which also happens to be the main component of vinegar. They discovered that the HDA6 enzyme essentially functions like a switch controlling which metabolic pathway is active. While the plants use sugar for energy under normal circumstances, they switch to the pathway that produces acetate during droughts.

They also found a direct correlation between the acetate levels the plants produced in drought conditions and their survival rate. This led them to reason that a plant that has high amounts of acetate would be better equipped to withstand a drought.

They then tested this hypothesis by treating some Arabidopsis plants with acetic acid and others with water or other organic acids and growing them in drought conditions to compare the results. The plant is a close relative of cabbage, kale, and cauliflower and is often used in experiments because of how readily it displays changes.

After two weeks, 70 percent of the plants that were treated with the acetic acid survived; nearly all of the other plants had died. The other acids that were used unsuccessfully included hydrochloric acid, butyric acid, formic acid, citric acid and lactic acid.

Other plants showed similar results when grown in vinegar

After mapping the signaling pathway of the HDA6 switch, the researchers discovered that it is conserved in many other plant species as well. The same experiment showed increased drought tolerance in maize, wheat and rice when they were grown using acetic acid. They found that the optimum concentration was 40 parts of water to one part of vinegar.

This simple technique eliminates the need for transgenic technologies, which means it is not only safer but also much easier to apply around the world. Kim said: “We expect that external application of acetate to plants will be a useful, simple, and less expensive way to enhance drought tolerance in a variety of plants.”

Further research is expected into the consequences the vinegar could have on the plant’s overall health. For example, the acetate response was connected to the way the plants used jasmonic acid, which they produce to defend themselves against fungus and insects. Additional studies will likely explore this link further to ensure there are no ill effects.

A promising solution

Should this turn out to be as promising as it appears, farmers could have a very valuable ally in vinegar when it comes to protecting crops from drought. It is an inexpensive and safe solution, and it is hoped that larger-scale studies with other plants will yield similar results.

Vinegar can also be used as a natural and eco-friendly way to kill weeds. It must be applied only to the weeds that are being targeted, and it should be done on a sunny day as sunlight activates the vinegar. While all types will get the job done, white vinegar is the most popular choice because it is the most inexpensive.

Given its ability to help plants survive drought in low concentrations and to kill weeds in higher concentrations, vinegar could well prove to be an indispensable item for every gardener and farmer to keep on hand.

American Heart Association wants you to stop using butter and start using toxic vegetable oils again

American Heart Association wants you to stop using butter and start using toxic vegetable oils again

Originally published June 26, 2017

(Natural News) 

The American Heart Association has just issued some curious advice to cardiologists, saying that people should stop consuming butter and replace it with vegetable oils instead. While it’s not surprising to see a group with strong ties to Big Pharma promoting such careless advice, it is very concerning to think of the potential effects it could have on public health if it is followed.

The AHA has long gone after healthy fats, and this time it even went so far as to say that coconut oil is bad for your heart. They would say that, of course, because eating these healthy foods keeps people from needing the prescription drugs made by the firms that support the group.

Their irresponsible stance has been drawing criticism from doctors with a more holistic viewpoint, some of whom have said this advice is downright dangerous. The AHA is suggesting that people eat polyunsaturated fats instead, like those found in vegetable oils and spreads.

The problem is that polyunsaturated fats like corn oil and canola oil pose their own set of risks. They promote inflammation, which can lead to cancer, and slow the metabolism. If it’s not enough to make you start running in the opposite direction to hear that nearly all canola oil is GMO, consider the fact that it suppresses thyroid function and immunity and needs extra processing in your body because it contains toxins. Yet they want us to believe that a chemical that was not put on this Earth for human consumption is really so much better for us than natural butter that came from a cow?

Meanwhile, corn oil is so bad that even some food manufacturers, who are not usually known for placing a high priority on healthy ingredients, are eschewing it and other GMO oils like soy and canola.

Most people know that olive oil is one of the healthiest oils out there and that it has a number of health benefits, particularly organic extra virgin olive oil, but the mixed message here about other oils has done nothing but leave people confused about what they should be eating and what is healthy.

How does the AHA benefit from publicizing bad advice?

The AHA gets funding from Big Pharma and its livelihood comes from – you guessed it – people having heart problems. The heart attack industry is very profitable, so it’s just smart business from their point of view to avoid promoting anything that could give them fewer clients and cut into their profits.

Statins, which are said to lower the risk of heart problems, are widely prescribed and account for a significant portion of the country’s prescription drug spending. They’ve been linked to all sorts of health problems, from nerve and memory issues to liver problems and muscle pain, and yet the FDA says that people should not be afraid to take them. The heart attack industry has a lot of powerful friends, it seems.

Osteopathic doctor Jack Wolfson was quick to criticize the AHA for its attack on saturated fat. In commentary published on Natural News, he called the AHA a lobbyist group that collects almost a billion dollars each year in exchange for promoting the agendas of Big Agriculture and Big Pharma.

He called attention to an American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study of half a million people that found no connection between saturated fat and coronary disease in 2010. Six years later, the same journal published a study that found that saturated fat reduces cardiac risks. He also pointed out that some foods that contain saturated fats like butter also contain other harmful ingredients, like the refined carbs and sugar in prepackaged desserts, and this could have made it a convenient scapegoat.

When will people wake up to the fact that many of these groups do not have our best interests at heart?

Natural Ways to Control Pests Inside Your Home

By James Jacobs

Originally published October 12, 2015

It’s not uncommon to occasionally end up with a pest problem in your home. And the truth is, pests can be a nightmare in your home. Having ants or any other type of pest marching freely on your floors or kitchen counter may not be the most pleasant situation. However, below you’ll find some natural ways to get rid of common pests in your home with items you’ll most likely have available.

Mint for the Ants

Ants don’t like mint. As such, you can drop a few tea bags of mint near those areas in your home where the ants just love parading! Ensure that different areas in your home are kept clean, most especially the kitchen. Besides mint, you can also sprinkle some cucumber peels in the areas of attraction and spray soapy water on them to keep them away.


Tannic acid for the Dust Mites

You can sprinkle tannic acid in dust problem areas to help neutralize the allergens in dust mites and animal dander. Since dust mites can be found anywhere in the home, regular cleaning or vacuuming should be done. You should clean or vacuum beds, furniture, stuffed animals or book shelves. Last but not least, steer clear of humidifiers since they help attract dust mites-they have a special love for humidity and warmth.

Catnip for the mosquitoes

Catnip does help repel mosquitoes, so you need to plant some in your garden. If catnip is not your thing, you can also plant citronella grass, lemon balm, marigolds or rosemary. Besides plants, you need to remove any standing water sources by your home. You also need to ensure that you shut your doors in the early morning or early evening hours to help block their entrance to your home.

Sweet Basil for the flies

You can repel flies and mosquitoes with sweet basil. Other herbs that can repel flies include bay leave, crushed mint, eucalyptus and cloves. You can plant sachets of these around your home.
Peppermint for the spiders

Spiders have a special dislike for peppermint so keep a spray bottle handy. Other repellants include a mixture of vinegar and coconut oil, a mixture of citrus such as lime, lemon, wild orange and tangerine.


Diatomaceous earth for cockroaches

Having a clean home should keep away cockroaches among other pests. Sprinkle Diatomaceous earth in areas that attract cockroaches in your home. Keep water away during this time as they will be actively looking for it. The tiny particles from the Diatomaceous earth should kill most roaches within two weeks or within 48 hours. You can also repel roaches with catnip, a spray of soapy water, garlic and bay leaves. In addition, sprinkle some boric acid on top of kitchen cabinets and keep the acid away from pets and children. You can also trap roaches by soaking bread in beer and placing it in an empty can then storing the can in the area where most roaches tend to appear.


Citrus for the fleas

In case you have pets, fleas are inevitable. Citrus are a natural flea repellant to use in your home. You can soak a sliced piece of lemon in a cup of boiling water, let it soak for the night and proceed to sponge the mixture on your dog in order to kill the fleas .However, you should not apply citrus oil on cats. Bathing your pets frequently will also help eliminate or reduce fleas. In addition, sprinkle diatomaceous earth on your dog or in places where fleas are most present.

NOTE from Angel4light:

I don’t know about you but fruit flies drive me bonkers every summer. We are farmers and love our fresh produce, but unfortunately when the tomatoes are riping on the shelf they tend to bring in these nagging pest. Fruit also brings them around, especially if they are in the ripe stage.

Many people would resort to chemical sprays, which are a big NO NO in our home. My sister told me about something she tried and Bingo, it works like a charm.

Pour about 1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar in a small dish that will be up and away from getting bumped or knocked over by pets or little ones. In this dish pour in a tiny amount of Dawn dishwashing liquid. 

Check the body count daily. Note: It will gross you out. Repeat this process as often as needed and don’t be fooled that they are totally gone as it takes 8 to 10 days for their eggs to hatch and the problem will repeat itself. 

When the solution seems to be getting thick, I have added just a small amount of water to extend it for another day or two. Especially if I were short on time but want to keep my kitchen and home nat free.

In the meantime:

  • Clean your drains, sinks and counters with rubbing alcohol. 
  • Follow up with a pipe flush using baking soda and white vinegar.  
  • Make sure there isn’t any standing water or fruits that will draw in these pest, because they multiply like mosquitoes and spread germs.
  • Burn some incense if you like, the fruit fly needs fresh air and smoke of any kind kills them.

I hope these tips and tricks help you maintain your sanity when bugs want to claim your home. 

Whatever you do, try to go natural. The chemicals that are on the market are lethal to bugs but also to you, your pets and your loved ones. 

We will talk about your cleaning goods in a future post. 

Stay safe and Chemical Free!

By Phyllis Bentley

Originally published March 22, 2016

Bay leaves are leaves that come from the bay laurel trees that grow over in the Mediterranean, France, Italy, North American, Central America. Bay trees are evergreens with long, aromatic leaves. Bay is a variety of laurel, and many times different varieties are referred to as bay. Bay leaves lose their health benefits after one year so discard of unused bay leaves which have lasted that whole time. Remember to store them in a cool, dry, dark place, preferably in an air-tight container.

11 Top Benefits & Uses Of Bay Leaf:

Cancer Prevention
The unique combination of antioxidants and organic compounds in bay leaves, including phytonutrients, catechins, linalool, and parthenolide, helps to protect the body from the effects of free radicals. Free radicals can cause healthy cells to mutate into cancerous cells.

Coughs & Colds
Placing a cloth soaked in water in which bay leaves have been boiled provides relief from cough, cold, bronchitis and chest infections.

Diabetes Care
Bay leaves help reduce blood glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The antioxidants in bay leaf enable the body to process insulin more efficiently, thus making it a good choice for diabetics and people with insulin resistance or Type 2 diabetes.

Aids Digestion
Bay leaf has strong pungent smell which stimulates the production of saliva and other digestive enzymes. These enzymes aid in the breakdown of food particles, thus promoting healthy digestion. Bay leaf is known to be helpful against heartburn and bloating.

Pain Reliever
Bay Leaf essential oil has anti-inflammatory properties, boosting blood circulation, easing sprains, strains, arthritis, rheumatism, general pains and aches.

Nourishes Skin
Bay leaf contains a range of antioxidants and antiseptic compounds like α-pinene, β-pinene, limonene, linalool, methyl chavicol, neral, α-terpineol, and chavicol. These have been found to be beneficial for skin. Bay leaf is also rich in Vitamin-C, which helps in preventing free radical damages.

Heal Wounds
Bay leaf has been used by herbal practitioners for its antifungal and anti-bacterial properties, treating snakebite, insect stings and relieving cuts and bruises.

Stimulate immunity
Bay leaves are a rich source of vitamins A and C as well as zinc, three nutrients of great importance for a strong, healthy immune system. Vitamin C (77.5%) is probably the most potent antibacterial and antiviral agent ever discovered, strengthening our immune system and increasing the aggressiveness of our white blood cells.

Reduce Acne
Bay leaves have several compounds which are useful in curing acne. Crush bay leaves and add it to water. Boil the mixture. Strain and splash the water on the face to get relief from acne.

Insomnia
Bay leaves have a calming effect on the mind and have mild sedative properties and help induce sleep. Therefore bay leaves can be used in the treatment of insomnia.

Most of the time, people, places, and objects that we don’t usually notice are the ones that often surprise us a lot. Those that we don’t bother giving a second look at or easily dismiss as something that are not too useful almost always end up giving us a pleasant surprise. Take bay leaves for example. Did you know that these leaf spices are your best weapon in keeping your kitchen pest-free?

Bay leaves are aromatic spices that have been around for thousands of years. In fact, bay leaves (or bay laurels) were highly prized by the Greeks and Romans because they believe bay leaves symbolize peace and wisdom. These are used for cooking because of their distinct taste and aroma. They also have medicinal benefit. However, one of the things most people are unaware of is the fact that bay leaves are excellent pest repellents.

Banishing bugs and pests from the kitchen will require you to think carefully about the products you’re going to use to accomplish this goal. Obviously, the kitchen is where you prepare your meals, so it wouldn’t do you or members of your household any good if you’re going to use something that contains toxic substances as doing so opens the possibility that harmful substances can get in contact with your food or the utensils you use.

image

Bay leaves can solve this problem. Just like boric acid, bay leaves have a gentler and kinder way of keeping insects at bay. That’s because bay leaves contain essential oils — like eucalyptus — which produce a strong scent that can keep pests away. What’s even better is, bay leaves don’t cost a lot. In fact, they don’t have to cost anything at all.

These natural forms of pest control offer the best way to get rid of pesky pests. The best thing about using bay leaves is that you can be assured that there is absolutely no health risk to you and to people around you. You can proceed as normal when inside the kitchen – prepare meals, enjoy dinner, enjoy some quality time with the kids – after filling your kitchen with the aromatic smells of bay leaves and not worry about potential side effects. (Related: 11 Top Uses & Benefits of Bay Leaf.)

This is not the case when you use insecticides to get rid of pests inside your house. For insecticides to work against rodents, cockroaches, bugs, and other pests inside the house, they need to be toxic at some levels. And since they are toxic, they tend to be hazardous to humans. If you’re someone who regularly uses insecticides, you’re more likely to experience the symptoms of pesticide poisoning.

The symptoms can be systemic or topical. Topical effects are usually concentrated at the affected body part that the insect came into contact with, caused by the pesticide’s irritant properties or an allergic response from the person. The most common effect is dermatitis or inflammation of the skin. It’s also common to experience coughing, wheezing, or sneezing when exposed to such toxic chemicals. The eyes, nose, and even the back of the throat may feel raw or scratchy.

Systemic symptoms, on the other hand, may occur away from the original site of contact and is a result of chemicals being absorbed by the body. Examples of systemic effects include nausea, headache, fatigue, and intestinal disorders. High exposure can lead to changes in heart rate or difficulty in breathing. In some cases, it can even lead to coma or death.

These are enough reasons why you need to opt for a more natural way to keep pests away. Bay leaves offer the safest and most effective way to keep insects away from your food and your home. Although there is no scientific evidence to support these claims, there’s no denying the fact that bay laurels can keep your kitchen pest-free.

To use bay leaves to ward off insects, put them inside cabinets or under the shelves or in areas where you’ve seen insects loiter around your house. You can also put some near the trash bin, which is usually the first place where insects are found. Sometimes ants, flies, and cockroaches can find their way inside of food containers, so put some bay leaves on your food jars to protect oats, pasta, rice, or flour. You don’t have to worry about doing this as the leaves’ smell will not stick to your food.

5 Health Benefits of Magnesium Rich Foods

Originally Posted Friday, December 19, 2014 

In general, most people are simply not aware of the importance of magnesium in their diet in the same way that they are of minerals like iron or calcium. However, this nutrient, too, is vital to the healthy functioning of the body and is it estimated that it is necessary for at least 300 chemical reactions throughout every system in the body. There are many benefits to getting enough magnesium in the diet, and the five most important are listed below.

Reverses/Treats Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is an age-related condition which results in the thinning of the bones, greatly increasing the risk for a fracture. Magnesium, in combination with calcium can help treat or even reverse this condition, however. It is able to improve bone density and alter the hormone and calcium metabolism that results in osteoporosis to begin with. This is of great benefit to both women and men as they age.

Promotes Cardiac Health

Adequate levels of magnesium in the body can lower the risk of heart disease in two ways. Firstly, magnesium is able to lower the blood pressure by relaxing the walls of the arteries and also acts on cardiac muscle to reduce the chances of abnormal rhythms. Both high blood pressure and arrhythmias are major risk factors for heart attacks, so reducing those risk factors translates into promoting cardiac health.

Helps Manage Diabetes

Due to the fact that magnesium is necessary for the proper metabolism of carbohydrates, a deficiency in this mineral can put the individual are greater risk for developing Type II diabetes. Sufficient magnesium, on the other hand, helps regulate the release and function of insulin to control the levels of glucose in the blood, a major challenge in diabetes management.

Support Neurological Health

Because magnesium is needed by the brain for a variety of neurological functions, there are many neurological conditions which benefit from adequate levels of the mineral. This long list includes migraines, depression, stress, anxiety, insomnia and panic attacks, all of which can be eased with magnesium supplementation.

Improves Women’s Health

Magnesium is particularly important for women. Aside from helping to treat osteoporosis, which post-menopausal women are at high risk for, it can also help with other issues in women’s health. These include improvement in the side effects associated with menopause, premenstrual syndrome and the risk of premature labor during pregnancy.

So if you are interested in upping your magnesium intake, considering adding foods rich in this mineral to your diet: these include things like fish, leafy green vegetables, nuts, whole grains and wheat germ. Since oftentimes diet alone is not enough to meet your body’s needs for this mineral, supplementation is recommended. While it might take some effort, however, the health benefits that adequate magnesium levels bring definitely makes those efforts worthwhile.

14 Fake Olive Oil Companies Revealed

14 Fake Olive Oil Companies Revealed

The 14 Fake Olive Oil Companies Are Revealed Now – Avoid These Brands

It was found that even 7 of the biggest olive oil makers in the USA, mix their items with cheap oils to get more profits. Namely, one of the products we regard as healthiest and a remedy for longevity has been corrupted.

Apparently, even 70% of olive oil sold in the U.S. stores is fake, as they have been cut with cheaper, inferior oils like canola (canola is NOT a true food, but a chemical mix – do not use) and sunflower oil! This is similar to the 2008 practice in Italy. This meant seizure for 85 oil farms that mixed some percentage chlorophyll with sunflower and canola to the olive oil.

The oil was mixed, colored, perfumed and flavored too, and these things made the Australian government investigate their oils. The results were awful. After that, not one brand named extra virgin olive oil got the 2012 certificate of approval.

These scams made the University of California study 124 imported brands of extra virgin olive oil and discovered that more than 70% of the samples did not pass the test.

THESE ARE THE BRANDS THAT FAILED THE TEST:

Carapelli
Mezzetta
Pompeian
Mazola
Primadonna
Colavita
Sasso
Antica Badia
Star
Whole Foods
Felippo Berio
Safeway
Coricelli
Bertolli

THE FOLLOWING BRANDS ARE TRUSTWORTHY:

Lucero
McEvoy Ranch Organic
Corto Olive
Omaggio
Bariani Olive Oil
California Olive Ranch
Lucini
Ottavio
Cobram Estate
Olea Estates
Kirkland Organic

HOW TO TEST OLIVE OIL:

Additionally, you can also test the olive oil you have at home. You should put the bottle in the fridge for half an hour, and if it starts to solidify, it means that the oil is pure, as it contains a large amount of monounsaturated fat.

On the other hand, if it does not solidify, it is fake. Yet, just to be sure, look for official governmental seals of approval on the label, like “Australian Extra Virgin Certified” and “California Olive Oil Council Certified Extra Virgin.”

We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank You.

NOTE from Angel4Light:

I have been using Olive oil for a very long time and the best that I can suggest is Braggs Organic Olive Oil. It is certified and well worth the money.

When purchasing Olive Oil or many products today, think about the container it comes in. Plastic is toxic, aluminum cans are absolutely poisonous.

I try to stick with glass containers. It is safer and also many times reusable or recyclable. 

I create my own salad dressings, using my husbands great wine vinegar with Olive Oil, some spring water and my select spices. We enjoy the taste and know that it is also very healthy. 

Start growing your own food. I can’t stress this enough. Should something happen, will you be able to get all your grocery supplies that you currently enjoy? The convience is why people are drawn to the city. Survival is the difference between city dwellers and country bumpkins. We know how to can our food for long term storage, make our own butter, raise animals and gardens to be self sustained. 

Try growing a garden instead of a lawn, the lawn is for looks but worthless when you are hungry.

Start looking at labels more. Many people are cooking with Canola Oil and it is toxic. Below is a video by TheHealthRanger to educate you on how toxic Canola Oil is.

Are you eating pesticides? Canola oil a great insect killer

EPA lists canola as a pesticide, says it is from the rape plant. 

http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/biopest…

Here is a great Video by Dr Josh Axe, where he discusses the benefits of Olive Oil and how to find the ones that are the best.

Is Olive Oil Healthy?

I personally don’t cook with Olive Oil, as I use Coconut Oil instead. We just don’t fry foods like we use to. Now it is rare if I make fried potatoes, I bake them or smother fry them in a shallow pan with lid using just a little coconut oil and the sweat from the steam makes delicious southern fries.

I use Olive Oil for my skin and healing salves. For hair treatments and even for my pets. I love salads and making my own dressings, which is awesome indeed. By changing the herbs gives me the variety I need. I personally love my husbands wine vinegar and my Braggs Organic Olive Oil together is such a treat to my taste buds.

I hope this information has been helpful to you. 

We have been fed so much propaganda through the years, now we need to stop being so gullible and lazy, we need to research everything.
