..The New Science Behind America's Deadliest Diseases

What do heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, stroke and cancer have in common? Scientists have linked each of these to a condition known as chronic inflammation, and they are studying how high-fat foods and excess body weight may increase the risk for fatal disorders.
Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury and outside irritants. But when the irritants don't let up, because of a diet of high-fat foods, too much body fat and smoking, for example, the immune system can spiral out of control and increase the risk for disease. Experts say when inflammation becomes chronic it can damage heart valves and brain cells, trigger strokes, and promote resistance to insulin, which leads to diabetes. It also is associated with the development of cancer.
Much of the research on chronic inflammation has focused on fighting it with drugs, such as cholesterol-lowering statins for heart disease. A growing body of research is revealing how abdominal fat and an unhealthy diet can lead to inflammation. Some scientists are investigating how certain components in foods might help. Dietary fiber from whole grains, for instance, may play a protective role against inflammation, a recent study found. And dairy foods may help ease inflammation in patients with a combination of risk factors.
Med-ase for this posting information. As an organic chemist there are several irritants/pollutants that cause cellular disfunction, msg=monosodium glutomate, aspartame (artificial synthetic sugar), sodium bisulfite to name a few. Also the animal growth hormones fed to meat animals are not for human consumption, yet when meat is eaten these growth hormones are absorbed in humans and 'confuse' our natural immune systems.
That is why LivingSuperFoods (brand name of Chef Keidi Awadu) can aid in reversing the inflammatory pollutants in the body. Our LivinginBlack.com Chef Keidi has embarked on a total commitment to rescue our People from body toxins and poisoning by eating Raw Foods. All seeking good health should read and listen to his programs.
Med-ase to you my brother Fronse. We will be delighted to have a GROUP
dedicated to LIVINGSUPERFOODS. Even a copy from Livinginblack will be
accepted and appreciated. We need to continue the great legacy of Chief
Keidi and the Health Benefits he bring to the table. I'm sure he would
be proud as well.
Information that can be shared with friends and family about foods OK for type II diabetics:
It is necessary for each concious Member to be advocates for good health with our families.
As we philosophically and intellectually define BLACKNESS I'd like to throw this into the discourse. Our families, friends, relatives are 'caught up' in the land-country we live in NOW. A small but GIANT STEP we can all take (Taj Mahal: Take a Giant Step with ME) is:
Folks take medications presecribed by doctors. That is a fact. One thing we all can do and IandI suggest is the following:
1. Talk to the drug takers, find out what they are taking, ask about their health problems.
2. Go online and read the drug information including the contra indications (adverse reactions or side effects). Read those to the drug taker and ask them to at least follow the instructions listed in the insert (handout). Notice I said read the instructions. Why? Because drug interactions with life-style foods and habits kill our People!
3. THEN calmly let the drug taker (user) know that their health is important to YOU and that you want them to LIVE.
Why? YOU can save more lives doing this than posting, preaching, admonishing and scolding. Yes our People need US to save them. That (to me) is Practical Blackness. Become a Health Resource Person in your community, you're only a mouse click away.

Yes Chemistry=Kemetstry!! All elements have electrons (negatively charged) orbiting the nucleus. The nucleus is made up of protons and neutrons. Protons have positive charges, neutrons are neutral charges. Each atom is a miniature solar system of sorts with the electrons orbiting the neucleus in balance. ALL natural Kemetcal reactions happen when the electrons bond with other electrons of another atom.
So you are correct to say it is all about electron-ics. Natural reactions are those that take place because of proximity of atoms and molecules powered by heat (the Rah-sun). Thus the natural state of any atom or molecule is how they exist in nature (Na-tu-rah). Na-tu-rah has the innate ability to create by elements reacting with each other. Thus Oxygen (2 electrons) bonds with 2 Hydrogens (2 electrons) to form water H20. or 1O + 2H = H20. The uni-verse originated (so science says) from a Hydrogen cloud sparked by the unknown unknown Origin (Ori-gen = Orion-generator. The Rah-sta-fa-ri are the over and under-standers of this Na-tu-rah-el reality.
