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.

Top 15 foods that are so dangerous they’ve been banned from entering other countries, but are served in the U.S.

No wonder the US is suffering epidemic levels of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other nutrition-related conditions

As someone who suffered terribly with a food allergy that was eventually traced to the horrible artificial sweetener Aspartame and has transformed his life through changing his diet to eat as ‘clean’ as possible, this list fills me with dread and certainly doesn’t make me want to eat any American food.

Top 15 foods that are so dangerous they’ve been banned from entering other countries, but are served in the U.S.

Many savvy and health conscious shoppers analyze food labels to know exactly what’s concocted in that jar, can or box. Conversely, millions of Americans, brainwashed by trendy advertising and/or scientific propaganda, remain clueless about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and other ubiquitous genetically engineered ingredients like MSG, maltodextrin, soy protein isolate, et.al. Food manufacturers spend lots of money concocting chemical additives to addict you. Some of these “foods” shoved down American throats are flat out banned in other nations. Distractify.com gives even the occasional junk eater fifteen reasons to just say no.

1. Pink Slime – This is not finely textured beef. It’s to the bone meat scraps mixed with ammonia to bulk up cheap burgers and hot dogs. Not allowed in E.U.

2. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) – For twenty years, Americans and their animals have been guinea pigs eating food with pesticides or herbicides embedded in the DNA. You’ll find GMOs in 80% of all processed food and feed. Animals experience birth defects, intestinal problems and sterility. 38 nations, including Russia, Italy, Venezuela, Scotland and Austria have banned them.

3. Carrageenan – Just cause it’s made from seaweed doesn’t mean it’s healthy. It thickens up U.S.food – yogurt, milk, infant formula – and is a culprit in gastrointestinal disorders. The E.U. bans this in their baby food.

4. Atrazine – This herbicide is an endocrine disrupter and most likely in your drinking water. Exposed male frogs are “chemically castrated” by atrazine and it’s banned in the E.U.

5. Artificial Hormones – We feed these to the cattle to fatten ’em up. Humans may get cancer as a result of eating the meat or milk laden with these synthetic hormones, which are banned in Japan, E.U., China and Australia.

6. Chickens in Arsenic – You know arsenic is a poison, but it makes your raw chicken purchase look pinker. Cows eat arsenic laced chicken manure. You might too, if you eat conventional meat. This process is banned in the E.U.

7. Ractopamine Pork – No, it’s not a dinosaur, Ractopamine is an asthma medication for pigs. It increases their muscle and the money they bring. You might get headaches, insomnia or gain weight or worse. Ractopamine additives are banned in Russia, China and the E.U.

8. Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVM) – if you drink energy/sport drinks, this poisonous flame retardant keeps your drink from separating. And may cause cancer, birth defects, schizophrenia and worse in rats. It’s so bad, 100 countries have banned it.

9. Artificial Coloring – You’re ingesting petroleum and coal tar when eating Red 40 or Yellow 5. It’s in candy and many other brightly colored foods. Read the label, because hyperactivity and brain cancer are risks. Banned in many parts of the E.U.

10. Bromine Bread – This increases the bulk and revs up the speed in bread production. Rats have bulked up with cancer, nervous system and kidney problems, among others. Canada. China. Brazil and the E.U. have banned it.

11. Azodicarbonamide – A chemical for whiter flour, yoga mats and rubber soles. Check your bread products. Asthma is a risk. It’s banned in Singapore.

12. Butylated Hydroxyanisole and Butylated Hydroxytoluene – This stops food spoilage. And may cause cancer. In butter, meat and gum. Japan, the UK say No!

13. Antibiotics – Given to animals to keep ’em healthy and fatter in CAFOs. Linked to antibiotic resistance and banned in New Zealand, E.U. and Australia.

14. Irradiation – Fukashima for food! Radiation is used to extend shelf life and killing bacteria. Used on meats, fruits and vegetables. Banned in the E.U.

15. Phosphate Additives – Added to meats for “flavor enhancement” and less shrinkage. Also sodas. Distractify.com calls it an “arterial toxin and increases heart disease risk.”

Here are some very insiteful responses ny readers regarding: “Top 15 foods that are so dangerous they’ve been banned from entering other countries, but are served in the U.S.”

Countries banning these things are smart. Here in the “USA” we have FDA-USDA-EPA and so many other agencies, approving poisons as “food” to guarantee profits to big pharma-medical and insurance corporates, who get to bankrupt their victims! very similarly MONSATAN cropdusts an organic farmer’s land and if anything is left standing afterwards they sue the farmer for stealing their “patented” GMO crap, instead of them being sued for the GMO contaminating a REAL crop! the “legal system” and “banksters” are in on it of course.

“supermarket loyalty discount cards” were NEVER needed for inventory or shelf re-stocking. they spent billions putting card systems in place mid-late 90’s, to more individually track the toxic junk you eat. they can know how much what color how stinky this week, and through “relational database shared information system” (big SIS) the “doctors” know what to hand out to treat the symptoms, insurers know how big a “health risk” to charge more (and more!).. but most people can’t add the 1+1+1 of it, mindlessly dismissing it all as “conspiracy theory” when all the components are right in front of them!
   
HFCS is made from GMO garbage “corn”, making it worse. I was “lucky” 30+ years ago finding out “aspartame” (ONE soda!) would give me a 12-14 hour migraine, only took 4-5 sodas over a couple months time to make the conclusion. thought and said it “watch this s#it cause brain tumors!”, which is happening but “doctors” are programmed to deny it as they pitch band-aid symptom treatment bankrupting people. same for “krones” (sp?), its not a “disease” its a symptom of poisons being approved for sale as “food”. a “doctor” or “nurse” poisoning patients to feel important and needed would normally be locked away for being a psychopath attempting murder, but now it’s the whole “system” doing it, for PROFITS!!!!
   
  

    Once, drying seeds from fresh produce would yield healthy growing seeds . Since irradiation has been used, this is no longer the case.
  

        Save heirloom seeds. I save seeds from my heirloom vegetable plants for the next growing season because I get the same plants year after year. I also grow organically to avoid nasty chemicals in the soil or on my veggies.
   
   
    Foods are “irradiated” by exposure to gamma rays emitted from cobalt -60. This does not make the food radioactive, but does make it sterile. Cobalt-60 was used as a source of gamma rays in radiotherapy.
    Cancer patients did not become radioactive from treatments .Pasteurization also makes foods sterile.
   
   
U.S. Beef banned all over due its Prion Disease making everybody in this country loony-Tunes which you can see by putting stuff like this in…

  
    For those interested in the water fluoridation issue read these two articles:
    IN HONOR OF DR. JOHN YIAMOUYIANNIS
    FLOURIDE ACTION NETWORK
    OCT. 11, 2000
    AND
    IN MEMORIAM — DEAN BURK (1904-1988), FLUORIDE, 22:3, 1989 July
    by H.L. McKinney, University of Kansas; Lawrence, Kansas
    These are the two pioneers in this fight. John Yiamouyiannis., Ph.D. was a top biochemist who was the most formidable opponent in any debate on water fluoridation. He was so good, others would avoid debating him! Dean Burk, Ph.D. was considered one of the greatest biochemists of the 20th Century and earned his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in Plant Nutrition and Chemistry at the young age of 23! While skeptical at first, he became interested

       
  
        DR. JOHN YIAMOUYIANNIS’s priceless book published over 2 decades back. I read it soon after.
   

    Thanks for this important article. This simply shows again the FDA is a totally corrupt cesspool bought and paid for by the Pharmaceutical and Food Processing companies, just as corrupt as most of the rest of our worthless government. The late John P. Dobbins Sc.D., who had a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from UC Berkeley, an electrical engineering degree from a top school in Germany and a doctor’s degree in physics from the Swiss Federal Institute in Zurich, after a distinguished career in industry, he became interested in human health. He submitted a detailed report “The Health Dangers of Sugar” to the FDA and proved it is a toxic poison and requested they remove it from the AFL or approved foods list. He won the argument but of course
   

    Thank you Ian. We will continue the fight to remove these toxins from America. The only thing I might add to your compilation is that “fluoride” is found in the water supply of most major cities here. Thus, commercial food and drink manufacturing (soups / bottled drinks etc) are tainted with this toxic substance that is also banned in several European countries and a multitude globally.

Amazing Health Benefits of Moringa oleifera

Helping Fight Diabetes

Moringa contains a type of acid called chlorogenic acid, which has been shown to help control blood sugar levels and allow cells to take up or release glucose (sugar) as needed. Its also have natural antidiabetic and hormone-balancing properties.
Prevent Cancer

This herb has antioxidants and fights free radicals. Since cancerous growths are triggered by free radical damage at the cellular level, it is not surprising that Moringa should have an anti-cancer effect. Its leaves extracts impart chemo modulatory effects towards curing various types of cancers such as ovarian cancer, hepatic carcinogenesis, and skin papilloma genesis. It also has vitamin C and beta carotene, but chlorogenic acid and quercetin too.

Enhanced Vision

Having healthy eyes and normal vision is something that can often be taken-for-granted but which requires the right nutrition to maintain normal function. Moringa is a rich source of vitamin A which contributes to normal vision.

Healthy Heart

Its leaf powder has heart-healthy benefits, particularly in blood lipid control, the prevention of plaque formation in the arteries, and reduced cholesterol levels.

Controls Blood Pressure

Another benefit of moringa powder is its soothing ability which enables it to lower the blood pressure and promotes good sleep. It is a natural remedy for insomnia as it possesses certain properties that can treat sleeping disorders.

Boost Immune

One of the best moringa benefits is its super immune-boosting powers. Maintaining a healthy immune system is essential for helping our bodies stave off infections and illnesses. Moringa Oleifera leaves are an incredibly rich source of iron and vitamin A.

Healing Wounds

It also has blood-clotting properties in its leaves, roots, and seeds that enhance wound healing and can reduce clotting time, which means it reduces the time it takes for scratches, cuts, or wounds to stop bleeding.
