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

(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?

Muscadine Grapes – The X Factor

In this article we look at the Muscadine Grape – a fascinating super grape that is like no other grape in the world. Once you learn about Muscadine grapes you will see how they make the perfect match to Resveratrol.

What Are Muscadine Grapes?

Muscadine grapes grow throughout the SouthEastern United States. Muscadine grapes (Vitis rotundifolia), also called Scuppernong, are bronze or a purple black color. Muscadines tend to be larger, stronger and have thicker skins than traditional grapes.

The climate and weather conditions in the Southeastern United States can be harsh and unpredictable. It is this very difficult climate that helped the Muscadine Grape evolve into a grape like no other.

Muscadine Grapes and Their Extra Chromosomes

Normal grapes have 19 pairs of chromosomes. Muscadines actually have an extra pair of chromosomes – they have 20 pairs! While the fact that muscadines have more chromosomes makes for some interesting trivia, the real excitement comes from the change in phytochemicals and nutrients that those extra chromosomes bring about.

Whatever Does Not Kill Me Makes Me Stronger…This Applies To Grapes As Well.

Muscadine grapes thrive in climates and conditions that would kill most European grapes. Surviving the tough conditions of the SouthEast makes the muscadine grape stronger and more packed with antioxidants and nutrients than any other grape.

In our article, The Big Picture on Resveratrol, we went over some of the the terminology when it comes to classifying the compounds in fruits. Basically fruits are made up of lots of different phytochemicals and it is these phytochemicals that give fruits many of their health benefits.

While Phytochemicals will vary slightly from a red grape grown in California to a red grape grown in France, their nutrients are very similar and therefore their health properties are very similar. Muscadine Grapes are unique in that they have a very different phytochemical makeup compared to standard grapes.

Muscadine Grapes:

    20 Chromosome pairs (regular grapes have 19)
    6 Times the Resveratrol content of regular red grapes
    The only grape to contain the very healthy Ellagic Acid (more on this later)
    More Dietary Fiber than Rice or Oat Bran
    High Quercetin levels (a very healthy flavonoid)
    40x Higher Antioxidants levels compared to standard red grapes

Sounds Great, Where can I Find Muscadine Products?

In places like Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas muscadine grapes appear in all types of local recipes. Muscadine wines, muscadine jams, muscadine juice and muscadine grape jelly are all very popular in the Southeastern USA.

While we encourage people to try the various muscadine wines, jellies and juices – these products do not offer the full health benefits of the muscadine grape. It turns out the Muscadine Seeds and the Muscadine skin/pulp have very different health properties. The muscadine seeds will provide more fiber, resveratrol and certain antioxidants. The Muscadine skin and pulp will provide more ellagic acid and other phytochemical. For this reason, a Muscadine Supplement that uses the whole Muscadine Grape – skin, pulp, juice and seed – will provide the most health benefits.

How will a Muscadine Supplement Help Me?

Now that we know the basics about what a Muscadine Grape is and how it differs from standard grapes, we can move onto what are the health benefits of the Muscadine grape…

The Health Benefits of the Muscadine Grape

In the above article on muscadines we reviewed the nutrients in the muscadine grape that make it different than any other grape. In this article, we are going to learn how the nutrients can help you and some exciting studies on the health benefits of the Muscadine grape.

Are the Health Benefits of Muscadine Grapes just from its Resveratrol Content?

No! As muscadine grapes have about 6 times more Resveratrol than standard grapes, they are an excellent source of Resveratrol. We have already talked about the health benefits of Resveratrol, so while the Resveratrol in Muscadines is fantastic, let’s focus on some of the other nutrients in Muscadines and their health benefits.

Are the Health Benefits of Muscadine Grapes the same as the benefits from red grapes, red wine and grape seeds?

No! Muscadines take all the health benefits of the red grape and take it to a new level. Let’s face it, Red Wine and red grapes are incredibly healthy.

Do a search at PubMed.Gov and you will find…

    Over 2,300 studies on Red Wine
    Over 700 studies on Grape Seed
    Over 550 studies on Red Grapes

Yes, some of those studies focus on the resveratrol in red grapes, but many more focus on all the other polyphenols and nutrients found in red grapes and grape seeds. The studies on red wine and heart health and longevity have been nothing short of amazing. While it is not the focus of this article, it is important to realize that the health benefits of red wine, red grape and grape seeds are fantastic.

Some of the Potential Health Benefits of Red Grapes and Red Wines:

    Boosts Heart Function and Promotes a Healthy Heart
    Helps Reduce or Balance Cholesterol Levels
    Helps Regulate Blood Pressure
    Boosts the Immune System
    Protects Against Mild Memory Loss
    Reduces Signs of Aging

Muscadine grapes take all those positive health benefits of red grapes and bring it to the next level. To learn how muscadines improve on the health benefits of red grapes, let’s dig a little deeper into some of the unique nutrients in Muscadine Grapes.

What is Ellagic Acid and Why is It Important?

Ellagic acid is a polyphenol (we define polyphenols here) – more specifically it is a phenolic acid. Now unless you are a plant and chemistry geek, these names really don’t matter. In laymen terms, Ellagic acid is a compound found in some foods, with very strong antioxidant properties.

What is fascinating is that Ellagic Acid is only found in one type of grape – Muscadine Grapes. The reason this is significant is that Ellagic Acid has been the focus of numerous studies for its possible anti-cancer and tumor fighting effects.

Ellagic acid may aide in chemoprevention. Chemoprevention is a term that means to chemically prevent cancer from occurring, growing or metastasizing. There is great interest in chemoprevention (not to be confused with chemotherapy) because it may be the best way to fight cancer, stop it from growing before it reaches a level that causes problems.

(Side note from Angel4Light: hell no to Chemotherapy the crap pushed by big pharma, it is the cause of death not the elimination of cancer. It kills the cancer cells temporarily but also kills the good cells, which distroys your immune system. It is a slow death and once you do the Chemotherapy you are pretty much doomed to die within 2 to 5 years. It is a sick way to die. I lost too many loved ones to Chemotherapy. I have many friends who have never taken Chemotherapy and had Cancer they and are using Alternative Health as a way to rid their bodies of various Cancer and the Natural Way, Is the Best Way… I just had to put my two cents of knowledge and experience in here. Hope it helps).

Ground Breaking Study on Ellagic Acid and Prostate Cancer

On September 1, 2007 the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) published the results of their study on Muscadine grape skins in the Cancer Research Journal. Rather than us telling you what the study found, let’s look at some direct quotes from the study…

    “Laboratory experiments show that an extract of the skin of muscadine grapes can inhibit growth of prostate cancer cells in the laboratory.”

    “Using a series of human prostate cancer cells, representing different stages of prostate cancer progression, the researchers showed that Muscadine Skin Extract (MSKE) significantly inhibits the growth of cancerous, but not normal, prostate cells, primarily by inducing a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Programmed cell death is one of the mechanisms the body uses to rid itself of cells with unrepaired genetic damage before those cells can duplicate themselves. In contrast, resveratrol seems to act by blocking the cell cycle, a sequence of steps that a cell passes through when it grows and divides into two identical cells. Both mechanisms are used by the body to prevent the development of cancer.”

    “The fact that all of the cells studied, which cover the different stages of prostate cancer tumor progression, responded to MSKE suggests that the active compounds in this extract may inhibit tumor development at very early stages.”

    “Although MSKE has significant inhibitory effects on the prostate cancer cell lines, it did not alter the growth variables of normal human primary prostate cells. This strongly suggests that the effects of MSKE may be specific for transformed cells, even at early stages, and that MSKE may be potentially very useful as a chemopreventive agent.”

Cancer is a multi billion dollar business

Resveratrol and Muscadine Grapes – Like Peanut Butter and Jelly?

In our article on Resveratrol Supplements we talked about how Resveratrol has some incredible health benefits, but we still felt that there were some other components of grapes that could compliment Resveratrol. The above NIH Study on Muscadine Grapes shows that the Ellagic acid in muscadines can inhibit the growth of cancer cells by inducing programmed cell death and resveratrol works by blocking the cell cycle. Both are important mechanisms to prevent the development of cancer and shows how the combination of Resveratrol and Muscadine Grapes makes a perfect combination.

Muscadine Grapes – More Fiber Than Oat Bran

There is a lot more to muscadine grapes than ellagic acid and resveratrol. Muscadine grapes are also an excellent source of dietary fiber. Here is a direct quote from the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) website –

    “Betty J. Ector has big plans for the muscadine. In research jointly funded by USDA, the Mississippi State University nutritionist found that a puree of muscadine skins and pulp is an excellent source of resveratrol, dietary fiber, and some essential minerals and is high in carbohydrates and low in fat and protein.

    “We found that powdered muscadine puree has more dietary fiber than oat or rice bran,” Ector says. “And we know that high fiber consumption lowers blood pressure, serum triglycerides, and both total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. It also protects against coronary heart disease, gastrointestinal diseases, and colon cancer. Soluble fiber has extra benefits for diabetics by delaying glucose absorption and increasing the sensitivity of skeletal muscles to insulin.”

Muscadine Grapes – All The Benefits of Red Grapes…Plus So Much More!

We know, this starts to sound like one of those late night TV commercials – “Wait, don’t order yet. You get all this PLUS so much more!” What is amazing about the muscadine grape is that the health benefits of the Ellagic Acid and fiber are really just bonuses. Do a search in PubMed on the health benefits of grape skins, red wine and grape seeds and you will find thousands of studies. Muscadine grapes provide all the health benefits that have been associated with red wine and grapes – plus all the benefits that come from the Ellagic Acid and fiber.

Muscadine Grapes Sound Great – How Should I Take Them?

There are a number of different ways to work muscadines into your diet – Muscadine wine, Muscadine Jam and Jelly, Muscadine juice and Muscadine supplements. In our next article we look at the best ways to get Muscadines in your diet.

Notes from Angel4Light:

Muscadine is a powerful grape, no doubt. My husband has been making us wine for years from this delicious and magical fruit.

Our friend who is 94 years young has the skin texture of a 50 year old and not one age spot. He is full of energy and loves to work in his garden and with his grapes.

We have learned so much from him about Muscadines, how to grow them, trim and nurture the vines to get the most yield. Also the Natural deterrents from predators are simple and work. We don’t use pesticides. This makes for a more powerful and delicious grape.

Freezing the Grapes are a delightful treat on a hot day. Also you can juice these and create great healthy smoothies.

I have a juicer that removes the pulps and seeds, but the valuable pulp and serds are not thrown out. I place the pulp and seeds into a blender and add the grape liquid, then I add a small piece of fresh ginger which had been peeled. Next I add honey if needed for sweetness, I add a Banana, an Apple, an Orange, and then I may add some whole milk if I want that flavor sometimes not. Sometimes I have taken the pulp seed mixture and put somr into ice cube trays to use for later in other smoothies.

My blended Muscadine makes a delightful fruit drink, a bit thick, but can be watered down with pineapple juice, or cranberry juice. Everything must be organic for me. So select what you know is good for you. When I add the Apple, I keep the skin, but remove the core. When I use Pineapple, many times this was a fresh pineapple that I had juiced down including the core which I can in glass jars.

Our old friend says that his secret to staying young is having one 6oz glass of Muscadine Wine each night. He sips it and it works. He sleeps like a baby, looks vibrant and the rewards keep coming. He says it is a delicious way to stay young. I have to agree.
