Bama Yao Ethnic Autonomous County

 In remote, mountainous, semi-tropical Bama County in China, it is customary for families to make a coffin for any relative who has reached the age of 60. Yet most coffins have rotted away long before they are needed and often end up being used to store corn instead of their designated elder. One 105-year-old who was visited by journalists in 2010 joked about the coffin made for her in 1958, which she can break into pieces with her hand. Another 116-year-old was reported to have seen four coffins decay before she was finally ready for the fifth.

For the truth is that the Bama people are some of the most vibrantly healthy, long-lived people in the world, with exceptionally high numbers of active, disease-free nonogenarians, centenarians and super-centenarians. A 2000 census recorded 74 centenarians amongst the population of 238,000, which is close to Okinawan levels. Studies show that only ten percent of nonogenarians in Bama have coronary heart disease and only four percent have excess blood lipids, whilst cancer incidence is a mere 4.4 people per 10,000.

The curative properties of Bama are legendary in China, with visitors coming from all over the country to soak them in. First, there is the vast, clear, Panyang river flowing through the valley with its mineral-rich water to bathe in and drink. Secondly, the Bama air, which is of just the right warmth and humidity year round, is known to be extremely high in negative ions and oxygen, thus creating a sense of exhilaration in those who breathe it. Bama also has high geomagnetism, said to benefit circulation, lower blood pressure and regulate the body’s ion balance. Throw in breathtaking scenery (so good for the spirits), an exemplary diet, and certain key lifestyle practices of the local people and you have a perfect storm of pro-health, pro-longevity conditions.

Bama people are themselves aware of the health-giving properties of their diet and lifestyle. The visitor is usually offered a bowl of ‘longevity soup’, made with hemp oil, an oil rich in both omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids which are crucial for perfect health. Bama people also believe their Fragrant Pig, lean and organic, and Oil Fish from the Panyang River, to be ‘treasures of longevity’. Loving relationships, hard work and good deeds are all considered to be conducive to good health, and Bama also boasts a large golden board donated by a former emperor bearing the legend ‘Love Makes Longevity.’

Longevity Village in Bama, Guangxi, has undergone rapid development in the past few years as tourists come to discover the secrets of long life. 

Thick stands of bamboo, graceful eucalyptus and glossy chestnut trees line the road into Bama. Its stunning karst landscape is pierced by caverns and rises into steep crags.

"Even in winter it's not cold at all. The mountains are beautiful and the river is the colour of jade," said Dai Guifang, 65, who runs a construction firm in north-eastern China. "The air is very good. I feel uncomfortable if I smoke even half a cigarette in Shenyang – but in Bama I'm fine if I smoke a pack a day." Her late husband spent his last few months here. She believes the stay prolonged his life and reduced the pain of his stomach cancer. "A lot of people were sick but got better after living there – it's the water. It has a lot of minerals," she said.

Most tourists drink the waters and the bolder ones bathe in it, with mixed results. Some have drowned, report residents. Further up the valley, scores of middle-aged and elderly people perch on rocks in the gloom of the giant Baimo cavern. A few stand with their faces turned to giant boulders, pressing their hands to the stone. This is geomagnetic therapy, they say, enthusing about its beneficial effect on the heart, the brain and even varicose veins.

Cui Xuedong, 58, pulled up his shirt to show the scar across his torso; he had just had a second round of surgery for liver cancer. He was sceptical when a neighbour urged him to try Bama but said the impact was unmistakable: "After 30-odd days my face was rosy again. When I arrived I felt exhausted every afternoon, whatever I did in the morning. Soon I could swim a kilometre and still kick a shuttlecock around."

He has now moved to Bama and runs an organisation bringing city dwellers to the area, while his wife exports hundreds of tonnes of its water.

Cui believes the area's geomagnetism and negatively charged oxygen ions are as important as its relaxed, modest lifestyle. Experts scorn that and see simpler explanations for the town's longevity: in large part, poverty and isolation.

Yang Ze, deputy director of the Institute of Geriatrics at Beijing hospital, began researching Bama's secret in the mid-90s. One key, he said, is natural selection. The area is remote and mountainous. In the old days, it took three days to leave the hills, so there was relatively little mixing with the outside world. In tough conditions, without medical treatment, the strong genes remained; the weak were eliminated.

In particular, he said, Bama residents have mostly inherited a gene from both parents that helps the body to produce a protein called apolipoprotein-E. That combines with fats to form a lipoprotein that reduces excess cholesterol.

Lifestyle played a part, too. People worked hard in the fields. Much of their food was steamed, not fried. When Yang first arrived, they ate "rice porridge with a bit of salt, and hemp oil", and seldom consumed meat. Old people were surrounded by relatives. "They were not lonely and were happy. They were calm, had fewer desires, did not compete, and were more optimistic," Yang said.

Now the area's new-found popularity is destroying its very attractions. "The new residents bring a Beijing lifestyle to Bama. They shout in the mountains; they turn up the music to do exercise in the morning," he added.

Hammers and drills disturb the once-tranquil scene thanks to the soaring demand for rented property. Cars clog the narrow streets, pumping out fumes. Residents complain the river is polluted because visitors dump rubbish and because the sewage systems cannot cope with so many people. These days, the young prosper by selling goods to tourists rather than by labouring. And the eldest can sit at home, on a couch, and wait for red envelopes.

As the area has grown wealthier and less isolated, it has also grown less healthy. Bama is a microcosm of China: its burst of development made its shift from diseases of poverty to those of affluence even more pronounced.

"The centenarians eat braised pork every day. Since they have got richer, their diet has been changing," Yang said. "Last time I was there, I told them problems such as high blood sugar and high blood pressure were appearing in this village, and that if they were not careful, it would lead to death. They did not listen to me and despised [my advice]. They said they had just started to get rich, and we were trying to stop them."

In 2005 there were 17 or 18 people aged over 100, but these days there are just two, he thinks – not seven, as the village claims. An Italian, aged 111, is officially the world's oldest man.

Yang believes Bama could soon lose all its centenarians. Not only are the next generation likely to have shorter lives, even those who are already elderly are unlikely to reach 100, he suggests. But having struggled for years to feed themselves, Bama's elderly see little to lament in this new world of plenty. "In my time there were a lot of wars. A lot of people starved to death. A lot of people were hungry," ruminated Huang Puxin.

"I have had a lot of happy times, but the best is now," observed Huang Makan, a few houses down, with a flash of her exquisite smile.

A tiny figure in a padded jacket, with a jade bracelet on each wrist, she says that she is 108, has never had a day's sickness, and enjoys the constant company. "Many people come to see me. I hope I live until 200," she confided.

How they did it?

Living a long life, Bama-style, according to those who have managed it:

Huang Puxin, 113: Be a good person. Have a good heart.

Huang Makan, 108: Eat green, organic, simple foods. I eat sweetcorn congee a lot. I don't have many demands.

Huang Meijian, 99: Work and walk around every day.

Dr Yang Ze's (strinkingly similar) advice
1. Treat yourself and others well, be more tolerant to yourself and others, be optimistic. Love life, love your family, have love to offer to people and be open-minded.

2. Have a healthy lifestyle. Neither eat too much nor stay hungry. Keep your diet bland. Eat more vegetables and fruits, and less protein and carbohydrates.

3. Do more exercise. All centenarians help themselves and do everything by themselves … They go farming in the mountains, they cook for themselves.

4. Bama women have children late: they give birth to their first baby at 27 and the last baby is usually around 42 or 43.

At 115, Boxin Huang is the oldest resident of China’s Bapan Village, also called Longevity Village. But he's not extraordinary there, where many live long past 100 years.

Cardiologist John Day, MD, of Intermountain Healthcare in Murray, Utah, visited Bapan and the Chinese centenarians and learned fascinating lessons about healthy living and healthy hearts, ones he shares with his own patients.

“Most people think it’s their genes, but the data don’t support it,” Dr. Day says about the Bapan centenarians. Research on about 3,000 pairs of twins who had identical DNA — the same genes — but as adults had different home environments and life choices, showed that only 25 percent of their longevity was due to genes. The other 75 percent was affected by lifestyle. Things within your control can make all the difference in lifespan.

I'll Have Vegetables With That

“In Longevity Village, the fascinating thing is that they eat vegetables as part of all three meals, even breakfast,” Day noticed. The food groups consistently associated with a healthy heart and long life are fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, legumes, and fish, Day says. He found that in Bapan, vegetables were always a main course. They ate a lot of fruits, nuts, and legumes as well.

“The diet we eat is absolutely critical,” says Day. He points to data from the California Seventh-Day Adventist study. Researchers tracked an extra seven years of life for men and four years for women, among more than 34,000 people who maintained a healthy diet, were active, and didn’t smoke.

Legumes — a food group that include beans, peas, and lentils — are a central part of the Bapan diet. “The longest-lived cultures use beans as a regular part of their diet,” Day observes. In Okinawa, Japan, for example — among the countries with the highest longevity rates — legumes are a regular part of the diet. Average life expectancy for people born today in Japan is the highest in the world, currently 84 years, according to the World Health Organization. In the United States, it's 81 years for women and 76 for men, according to an October 2014 study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Exercise? No. Movement? Yes!

The rural area of Bapan has no exercise culture, Day says. In fact, in Longevity Village, the elders laughed at him when he asked if they exercised, because “they were outside, moving their bodies all day.” On his visits to the area, most recently in 2013, he found people of all ages engaged in physical activities like farming. Everything was done by hand because this remote area had no access to mechanical equipment like power tools until very recently and, Day adds, no televisions or computers.

Research data also show that people who stay physically active get extra years of life. In a Taiwan study of more than 400,000 people, researchers found active people enjoyed an extra three years of life. They needed only a bare minimum of physical activity to prolong life — 15 minutes each day. The reason relates, in part, to heart health.

“It’s often said in the cardiology community that you are only as old as your arteries. If your arteries age, it wears out your brain, heart, and even kidneys,” Day explains. This is because by being physically active, you can slow the buildup of plaque in your arteries – and keep your heart and body healthy a lot longer.

Connect More, Stress Less, Live Longer

If you look at countries where people live longest, most are places where elders are revered. “In Longevity Village, 74 percent of the centenarians in the county lived in four- to five-generation homes, all under the same roof,” says Day. “They always ask the oldest person for advice; always serve them first at every meal.” Grandparents are very involved with the family and especially with child rearing. This social support has tremendous health benefits.

Only 25 percent of longevity is in the genes; the other 75 percent is lifestyle.

“Study after study shows the more social support, the longer people live. People have better survival when they are socially connected,” says Day. “Having a sense of purpose can significantly increase your longevity.” Research shows that men and women with stronger social relationships have a 50 percent higher likelihood of surviving longer, according to a review of studies including 308,000 participants.

In contrast to the U.S. experience, where youth is prized and prominent in advertising images, in Longevity Village, advertisements featured the oldest people. “They become a celebrity when they reach the 100-year mark,” says Day.

Stress is becoming increasingly challenging in our society, says Day. In his experience, “80 percent of emergency room visits are stress triggered.” Life is stressful, but it’s how you deal with it that matters. Too often we live isolated lives, and even our diet causes a buildup of stress we need to diffuse, he explains.

Connection matters. In Longevity Village he found a connection to nature, to the earth, to family and friends, community, and food. Day says, “Even their food was connected and in a natural state. The fish they caught in the stream they ate later that same day; the vegetables they harvested in their garden they ate that day.”

Simple Secrets to a Long Life

The people living in Longevity Village are a five-hour bus ride away from the rest of civilization, so air pollution is not a problem there, at least not yet. But even here, you can take steps to ensure your air is as clean as possible. If you smoke, stop. And invest in an air filter if you need to, says Day.

“I cannot overstate the importance of breathing clean air,” he adds. This is on the top of his list, along with five more directives:

~Be physically active
~Eat a healthy diet
~Get restorative sleep.
~Manage your stress.
~Be socially connected.

Day believes you can have the best of both worlds, by making conscious choices that are healthy for your heart and beneficial for a long life. He and his family have learned a lot from Longevity Village, says Day: “We’re definitely going back.”

Hundreds of years ago, the emperors of imperial China ordered the vast resources of their empire focused on the pursuit of xian xue, the "science of longevity." What they uncovered is a secret open to anyone interested in better health—that living longer and having more energy is as easy as moving, breathing, and eating.

Chinese Secrets of Health and Longevity instructs you in these original strategies for maximum energy and life span. Based on the concept of "correspondence," Chinese medicine sees a vital link between your environment, your daily habits, and your health. By making simple adjustments in your diet and lifestyle, you can feel more alive every minute of the day, perform better at work, and have more energy for enjoying life.

In China, the most successful doctors are those who treat the fewest patients. They "treat" people with natural, noninvasive techniques before illness develops. Join Dr. Bob Flaws, one of the Western world's leading authorities on Chinese healing, and learn how easy it is to master these simple, life-changing health strategies. Topics include:

Listen , Your Poop Is 'Talking' to You

Whether you talk about your poop or not, is no big deal. But know for a fact that your poop talks to you every time. So listen up and be in the know.

Talk 1: If your poop is ... so Explosive, Liquid, and of seaweed dark green colour.

Poop may mean:  You have a Clostridium difficile (C.diff.) infection. It's becoming more common and usually occurs after a course of antibiotics. C.diff is a normal part of the flora in your digestive tract, but taking antibiotics drugs can kill off the good friendly bacteria that normally keeps C.diff in check. As a result, the good bacteria may proliferate uncontrollably and cause serious stomach health issues that can lead to dehydration, hospitalization, and in extreme cases may even be deadly. So the quick remedy is to drink at least two glasees of water (230 ml glass size) every 30 hours period. Call your doctor immediately, if still in severe pain. If you are still taking a course of antibiotics, find out if you should stop.

Talk 2:  If your poop is ... pencil-thin size.

Poop may mean: You're constipated, or be an indication of rectal cancer. If you notice pencil-thin stool for a day or two, it's probably not an issue. It may occurif you're constipated and straining a lot, which prevents the muscles in the anal sphincter from opening and can narrow the passage way stool comes out. Adding more water and fresh fruit s daily can help. But if the pencil-thin poop is ongoing for a week, it could indicate rectal cancer. With rectal cancer, the tumor is fixed and rigid and encircles the rectum so there's less space for stool to squeeze through so it appears very thin and stringy. Remedy for this situation is drink water regularly.

Talk 3: If your poop is ... Smells like sulfur or rotten eggs and you have diarrhea.

Poop may mean: Youcoiuld have giardia. The parasite tends to hang out in fresh water, so if you went swimming in lake, have gone camping , or drank unpurified water recently, you may have picked up the bug along the way. The issue here isn't always as obvious as you may think. You could have diarrhea for weeks or even months, but otherwise feel fine. Your doctor can run a 'stool sample test' to diagnose it, and certain medicine can treat it. Meanwhile always remember to drink enough water every 90 minutes-interval with a pinch of natural seasalt on your tongue.

Talk 4: If your poop ... floats instead of sinking.

Poop may mean: You have excess gas in your digestive tract. If you've been eating lots or too much beans, sprouts, cabbage, or very large meals per sitting, it's perfectly normal for stool to float because of gass, and it's not a cause for over concern. However, if floaters poop become more common than a week for you or you spot an oil-slick appearance, it could mean something is preventing your body's ability to absorb fats from food. Inflammation or an infection in your pancreas could prevent you from producing enough digestive enzymes. A food allergy or infection could be damaging the lining of your intestines that's affecting absorption, too. Do a stool sample test to see if there's fat that shouldn't be there. Exercise and drink more water can help this situation.

The True Causes of Diseases

by Barbara ONeill

So the million-dollar question , "Why do people get sick?" What is the true cause of disease?

Well, Louis Pasteur made the germ theory famous and he made the germ theory famous probably in about the 1850s , somewhere like that, and the germ theory states that germs cause disease.

Now, if the germ theory is correct, surely all we have to do is find something that will kill the germ. Have we got enough things to kill germs, ladies and gentlemen? There, if you've seen it's a million multi multi million dollar industries, the whole pharmaceutical industry,  isn't it?

In fact, there are two multi-million dollar industries, actually there's three now. Number one is the junk food industry. And because of the junk food industry, people aren't working well, that's produced the pharmaceutical industry that comes along trying to fulfill what Louis Pasteur stated that germs causes disease. But I tell you what, if germs do cause disease and we've got a multi-million dollar industry built on drugs to kill germs , why aren't people getting better? In fact, people are getting sicker. They are.

Well, there's another multi-million dollar industry being born out of the frustrations from people who aren't getting better from the drugs and that is the vitamin industry. Am I right? Is it working? I would like to suggest to you that it is not working. 

And there's a very famous nurse called Florence Nightingale. She knew the true cause of disease. And I'll show you why in a minute. And when she read Louis Pasteur's theory who was a contemporary at her time, she said, "This is the theory of a man of a very unstable mind." And she said, "Anyone who believes it, is equally unstable." 
What did Florence Nightingale believe? 

Well, Florence Nightingale was born to a very wealthy parents. She was educated which was very unusual for a woman of her day. And she wanted to help people And so at the ripe old age of about 28, she was that age before her father let her start to work in institutions for wealthy young women who were fainting because their corsets were too tight , etc., etc. 

She said in her book the only time she was happy when she had parcels of food and she was going to the little villages to help the poor. Her sister, Frances Parthenope, loved the wealthy life. She loved the parties, sewing a fine seam and painting watercolors but Florence Nightingale said it that drew no satisfaction to her. So, by the time she was about 33, she'd gained a little bit of experience. Well, actually quite a bit of experience in the line of nursing. She was very interested in how the institutions. And so she put in a lot of procedures, so that was basically her role.  Well in about 1856 and the Crimean War * was happening. [*Crimean War, (October 1853–February 1856), war fought mainly on the Crimean Peninsula between the Russians and the British, French, and Ottoman Turkish, with support from January 1855 by the army of Sardinia-Piedmont.] And the message got back to the British government that the French soldiers were being better looked after than the British soldiers. it's usually political, isn't it? And so the British government asked Florence Nightingale to take 35 nurses to Zuccotti which was the port where the wounded from the Crimean War were being taken. When she got there, the conditions were appalling. The hospital was ex-army Turkish barracks. The plumbing didn't work.  There was raw sewage in the corridors. The conditions were appalling. And the death rate in that hospital was fifty percent. You had a better chance on battlefront than you had in that hospital. 

But when she came in, the doctor said, "We don't need you. And you're not coming in here." They sent her to the kitchen. She went to the kitchen, it was filthy. There were huge big pots of water with a bit of rotten meat in it. There was the food. Because the plumbing wasn't working, 30 men work were going to one chamber pot. The stench was horrific. She found one man who'd been there two weeks and hadn't been attended. They were just overflowing with wounded men. So, Florence Nightingale did what she could; scrub the kitchen, got the kitchen  working. Meanwhile she telegramed her father. 

She said, " I want a shipload  of clean linen, clean bed clothes, clean mattresses, clean bandages and a cook. As you will see as we go through the lecture this morning, human body cannot heal without nourishment. It's like asking a builder to build a house but not providing the building raw material. Two and a half weeks later, another shipload pf wounded soldiers came in . The hospital was already at its limits. So the doctor said, frowned at the nurses, "All right, you can come in." I hated that.
 Do you know she made them wash their hands between operations. The first thing Florence Nightingale did was, she got her nurses to start scrubbing.  Scrubbing and cleaning. Opening the windows. She got men to assess the plumbing, to see now, if you don't turn the tap off, you're not going to be, he's still going to be mopping up, aren't you? Within, I think it was about October she arrived, November 1856 , by 1857 that was about April, the death rate had gone down to ten percent. Within a full six months, the death rate was 2 percent. Wow! 

When she went back to England, she was hailed as a heroine. When she found that was going to happen, she slipped down the back gangplank and went home. She said, "I'm not a heroine." 

She said, " All I did was increased hygiene, the sanitation, and the nutrition." She knew germs don't cause disease. She said, "Germs are the results of unhealthful conditions."  She made the hospital such that there was nowhere for them germs to live. Their role on the planet is to clean up the dirty place. You see that?  

In fact, on his deathbed Louis Pasteur refuted his own theory. This is what he said, I have about four books where his deathbed confession is quoted, "Bernard was right." Who was Bernard?  Claude Bernard was a contemporary at the time of Louis Pasteur.
Claude Bernard believed it was not germs that cause the disease, but it was the condition of the body. And this is what Pasteur said on his deathbed, "Bernard was right. The microbe is nothing. The organism is everything."  And isn't that true? It is not the microbe that causes the disease,  it is the environment. Florence Nightingale , she didn't come in with drugs to kill every microbe. She just cleaned up the environment, so they weren't there anymore. Displacing common sense, isn't it? 

So, the germs theory has been very popular and it is still is to some extent. But  another theory has almost surpassed it. They're actually equal. I call them the two Gs'.  In 1953, headlines in the newspaper, "Secret of Life has been Discovered!" Watson and Crick's had been able to unravel the DNA . And from that time on, the second G came in to be blamed as the cause of all diseases. It's the Gene. Is it the Germ or is it the Gene? 

Notice with both theories, it takes away all responsibility on the human being for what is happening in them. So, they are very convenient , seriously. You see, if the human body was designed to heal itself and if it's not healing itself, one must ask this . This little three little word will remain here all the time. And it's the law of action and reaction. It's Newton's Third Law of Motion : to every action there is an equal and an opposite reaction. If a body is not healing when it's given certain conditions, one has to put on the detective hat on and ask why. Why is this happening?  And why isn't it healing? And what's the definition of insanity? To do what you've always done and expect different results. If it's not working, change the conditions until the body says, "Yeah , this works." And as I spoke about last night, you're the doctor. If the body says, "I like this." What's it saying, yeah do this.

Let's have a look at the gene. Here is the cell. And the cell must be looked at because that's what we are. We're just a bunch of cells. We have hair cells, eyes cells, tissue cells, skin cells, liver cells, kidney cells and most all the cells are much the same. And they run much the same. Yesterday in your live blood analysis, you saw the size of cell, 250 million red blood cells on one drop of blood. 

 Image result for 250 million red blood cells on one drop of blood

[4 oxygen molecule in hemoglobin. 250 million hemoglobins per red blood cell. 5 million red blood cells per drop of blood (1 mcL): Plasma-55%, Bitty Coat < 1 %, RBCs - 45 %]
  Now , when I'm speaking about the cell, I'm not speaking about the red blood cell because the red blood cell is a little different. It doesn't have a nucleus. You see, it's in the nucleus that the DNA is.

The red blood cell the carrier. And it is the carrier of nourishment taking it to these other cells, so that they've got oxygen, so they've got water, so that they've got nourishment, so the waste can be taken away. So Watson and Crick's in 1953 were able to unravel this DNA? if you pull that DNA out , it's two meters long. Wow!

Let's have a look at the DNA unraveled. DNA is abbreviation for DeoxyriboNucleic Acid which is a molecule that carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses. Chromosome is a thread-like structure of nucleic acids and protein found in the nucleus of most living cells, carrying genetic information in the form of genes. 23 chromosomes from my mother, 23 chromosomes from my father. The information is all stored up in the DNA on how to make a new body.

And did you know we're constantly being remade. Our eyes cells are remade every two to three days. That's why people that have eye operations, they recover very, very quickly.

The next cell that recovers quick is the cells that line your gastrointestinal tract. Their remade every three to five days. Because we're not all made at once, every cell not remade at once, I think it takes approximately about a year before we have got a new body.

Let's have a look at the DNA. The outside strands are made up of polysaccharides. And polysaccharides basically means many sugars. And many sugars come from just about everything that we eat. So they're of upward strands. The inside strands are made up of amino acids. And amino acids come from the protein that we eat. The glue that glues the amino acid bands to the outside polysaccharide strands is minerals. And the food that is the highest in minerals is the vegetables. When Hippocrates said let food be your medicine and medicine be your food, he didn't know about the DNA. But he knew that we were made up from what we eat. And you can see by the very structure of the DNA, we're made up from the food that we eat . We're constantly being remade. How are we remade? 

Well, DNA has all the information on  how to re-make us. Every cell in the body has all that information and if you were to put all that information into alphabetical language, it would fill a thousand books with a thousand pages and three thousand letters on each page. That's quite phenomenal, isn't it? All the information, let's say this is a gastrointestinal tract cell, GIT-cell. All the information on how to make a new gastrointestinal tract cell is in every single DNA of every single cell of the body. So, all the information is there. But that gastrointestinal tract cell, it doesn't want to make a new liver cell or a new pancreatic cell. So, for reasons that medicine doesn't quite understand, the information is highlighted, not on how to make a new liver cell  but how to make a new gastrointestinal tract cell. So, almost the liver cell information that's veiled over. 

So , let's look at how a new gastrointestinal tract cell is made. So all the information is in the DNA makes a photocopy of it, then it's called RNA . [ RiboNucleic Acid (RNA) is a polymeric molecule essential in various biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes. RNA and DNA are nucleic acids, and, along with proteins and carbohydrates, constitute the four major macro-molecules essential for all known forms of life.] And RNA with its photocopy of all the information on how to make a new gastrointestinal tract comes down to the little factory where it's made, called ribosome. Ribosome is the little factory where the new cell is made. 

And the structure begins brick upon brick. What are the bricks? Amino acid. What's the glue? Mineral. Brick upon brick, all the informations there and out pops! a new  gastrointestinal tract cell. What about someone with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Irritable Bowel Syndrome is irritation of the lining of the colon, small intestines. If someone has Irritable Bowel Syndrome why aren't they well in a year? Is that a reasonable question? If the body is constantly being remade, why aren't they well in a year. It's a reasonable question, isn't it? 

Let's have a look at what happens. Information from how to make a new gastrointestinal tract cell taken down by RNA to ribosome. This person has Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The information comes through and the new cell is made. Brick upon brick, "oh ! no! there's a flaw in the pattern." Mutation in the DNA, it's called. Remaking process continues, brick upon .."oh !no! there is another flaw in the information. Something is wrong with the pattern.  It's not being made right. Brick upon ..oh ! no! the person is shortage in a basic amino acid. Maybe that's final line ..that's not made properly..oh! no! they're shortage in a mineral, maybe it's magnesium. So , that's not made right. And a new Irritable Bowel Syndrome cell is made. 

There are a lot of health professionals today, who are looking at healing from a DNA level. Because if you don't get the pattern right, if you don't get the recipe right, it cannot be made, you see? 

Cancer is mutations of the DNA. So, the first thing we've got to do, obviously, is to stop what is causing the damage or the mutations in the DNA. And heal that DNA or the body will not heal. 

So, let's have a look now at what causes  damage in DNA? Because as I said previously, if you don't turn the tap off, you're still going to be mopping up in the other corner. 

Let's have a look at what causes damage in these DNA messages?C
Cause Number 1, is chemicals. Chemicals are called carcinogenic. Carcinogenic means causing cancer. Causing mutation in the DNA. I was reading in the Chemical Alliance magazine recently, that they're finding babies that learn to swim or children that learn to swim as babies in chlorine pools are having health problems. Because of the chemicals on the pool. Whenever they try to put fluoride in the water, huge public protest comes up. Have you noticed? But they still put it in the water. You know what fluoride is? It's a by-product from Elko, the aluminium making company. 

Does fluoride help with teeth? Well, fluorosis* is mottled teeth that's from too much of the fluoride. Mottled is mark with spots or smears of colour. [ *Dental fluorosis (also termed mottled enamel) is an extremely common disorder, characterized by hypomineralization of tooth enamel caused by ingestion of excessive fluoride during enamel formation.]

 Fluoride can also damage the DNA. It can also damage brain cells. It can damage kidney cells. And the fact is, if fluoride touches the tooth, it can actually strengthen the outer coating, that's about all. 

How many chemicals were legal twenty years ago that are illegal today? How many are we using today or some are using today that will be illegal in another 10 years ? Chemicals cause cancer. Chemicals cause mutation of the DNA. We don't have any over the neighbour but we have total say over our home. One of the best things you can do for your family is make a decision to have a chemical-free home. And as we go through these lectures, I'll show you very effective and much cheaper alternatives. 

Cause Number 2. Genetically Modified Foods (G.M.F.). How do they cause mutations  in the DNA? Basically, that's how GMF are created from two different species  are spliced together. Let's give you an example. The DNA from a tomato and the DNA from an Atlantic salmon (a fish), they spliced together to create a tomato that will grow in the snow. But it actually doesn't happen. There's this huge gray area of all these other things that happen that they actually don't understand. And when a human being eats genetically modified food and when that food broken down to these simple structures like amino acids , minerals , especially amino acids, the body says "who are you, I don't recognize you." And if there's no other amino acids, the body has to use them for the building of the DNA and that causes flaws, causes mutation in the DNA. Eating Genetically Modified Foods (G.M.F) causes cancer because it actually puts into the body basic ingredients that the body does not know how to use. 

Cause Number 3. Excess in electromagnetic  fields. Hmm. You probably heard about cows grazing under those huge big electrical towers and they have stillborns they have , you know, their offspring are born with problems. We all have electromagnetic fields in our human body where electrical people there's a spark of electricity in every cell in our body. It's the excess that causes the problem. Some of the biggest danger that are happening with people today is exposing their eyes because your eyes are an extension of your brain to the electromagnetic field access, especially late at night
