JAPANESE STAR CHEF KILLED IN GERMANY BY DISGRUNTLED DINERS


Was deadly beating on North Sea island due to a dispute over the quality of his fusion cooking?

Miki Nozawa was well-known as a Japanese-Italian fusion chef who had cooked in some of the world’s finest restaurants. Now Nozawa may become more famous in death, following an alleged beating by two guests who reportedly did not enjoy their meal at his newly-opened Asian snackery Nozawa (“A Taste Of Asia To Go”) on the North Sea island Sylt, a fashionable German resort.

The men had complained to the chef that they didn’t like his fried noodles with vegetables and beef and refused to pay for their meal, reports Suddeutsche Zeitung.

Later that same evening, the 57-year-old chef happened to be at the same bar as the two guests, both craftsmen aged 36 and 50 respectively. As reported by the newspaper Bild, he is said to have told the men: “Pay your bill. Ten euros for each of you.”

After that, investigators say, a loud verbal exchange took place that escalated when they stepped outside. The disgruntled customers allegedly started beating Nozawa, who died several hours after he was brought to a local hospital. The exact cause of death has not yet been announced.

Before opening his own place on Sylt, Nozawa had worked in Italian entrepreneur Flavio Briatore’s renowned Billionaire restaurant on the island of Sardinia. He had cooked for Mikhail Gorbachev, Phil Collins, Denzel Washington and other celebrities.

Public prosecutor Ulrike Stahlmann-Liebelt stated that the alleged perpetrators were drunk when they attacked Nozawa. The alleged perpetrators are still at large.

 

Why is Monsanto bad for humanity


936128_412372515526641_1328091484_n

Monsanto is bad because their chemicals cause long-term damage to life on this planet – despite the short-term benefits such as higher yields. Would you eat a plant that cannot be killed by Round-Up – a weedkiller which kills or damages all natural plants? They have engineered plants that can be sprayed with huge doses of Round-Up and live (for us to eat) while the weeds around them die.

Monsanto is bad for humanity for several reasons:

1. They use genetically modified seeds with something called terminator technology. When a harvest happens, the seeds produced by the new crops are rendered useless. Although in 1999, Monsanto agreed to not commercialize terminator technology. This means farmers have to repeatedly purchase these seeds.

2. Most crops Monsanto grows are heavily fertilized. In essence your eating pesticides, fertilizer, antibiotics etc.

3. They have uprooted countless agricultural traditions in places like India, Mongolia, Vietnam. For example in India sesame seed oil was once the way people made their money and cooked their food cheaper. Monsanto lobbied the Indian government to use soy bean oil (soy is their main product). This destroyed the economic stability of India’s subsistence farmers. It is awful for their economy, but also for their health. Immediate heavy intakes of soy can be extremely harmful for the body..I don’t know why, don’t ask. just Google it.

4. Monsanto because of its recent growth by buying out its competitors is imposing a monopoly on the world grain trade…this largest agricultural market in the world. The grain trade feeds cows, pigs, chickens, us, everything we eat comes from grain food. Monsanto by having a monopoly kills smaller businesses, makes us unhealthy, uproots local agriculture etc.

New Monsanto Banana Promises Rapid Weight Loss and Whiter Teeth


5783_484319724963418_550250762_n

Genetic modifier Monsanto Inc. has launched its patented new 2013 model Banana Plus with bold new features aimed directly at the image conscious consumer.

“It flushes away bum and belly fat right there in your bowel movements,” said Colin Snead, Monsanto’s Vice President of Bananas, Coconuts and Mangoes from the corporation’s new product-testing farm and theme park in Maui, Hawaii. “This model is our best banana yet! Just in time for bathing suit season!”

“LOSE UP TO 20 UUUUGLY POUNDS A WEEK!!” read Monsanto ads and bar code stickers on the peel of the new Banana Plus.

“But there’s more! It whitens your teeth better than any toothpaste on the market and…we’re not advertising this…but smear some Banana Plus on your skin and say goodbye to acne and other unsightly blemishes,” said a smiling Snead, his extremely white teeth dazzling and a bit distracting as he hands a banana to an assistant to eat.

The bold introduction of the new fruit is part of Monsanto’s aggressive new marketing plan to stop being defensive about special-interest consumer health complaints, mostly from scientists and people who have children, but rather to loudly sell the benefits of each food product that has had its genes cut and pasted.

“All anyone hears is how our corn causes colon cancer and our apples lead to oozy ear lumps and deafness…they never hear that our plums grow hair for balding men and women,” said Vice President of Marketing and Profit, Gunter Gall, speaking to reporters by Skype from Monsanto’s headquarters in the company-owned city of Creve Coeur, Missouri.

Monsanto plans to unfold the new, aggressive marketing tactics for its other products including seeds, DEET, transfats, herbicides, pesticides, STP Motor Oil Treatment, and its new Edible Food Products line.

“We’re about to launch our new Bee Free Honey,” boasted Gall. “With all these silly bees dying, Monsanto has done the ethically right thing and researched a solution. Honey that doesn’t need bees!! And it improves your night vision!!! How cool is that?”

Synthetic vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, kills beneficial probiotic bacteria in the gut and cannot confer vitamin activity in the body


images (1)

Most people nowadays are well informed about the numerous health benefits of vitamin C, and find ways to incorporate it in their diets, either by taking supplements or eating more foods that contain the vitamin. While the many benefits of vitamin C are well-documented, such as its ability to boost the immune system, there are less well known facts about the synthetic version of vitamin C, or ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid, the synthesized version of vitamin C, has been proven to kill bacteria effectively, which makes it effective in killing parasites and infections. Unfortunately, it does not differentiate between the good and bad bacteria in the gut, and wipes out good bacteria in the gut which is mandatory for vibrant health.

Ascorbic acid defined

Synthetic vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is not found in nature. It does not grow naturally in plants or trees and cannot be grown on a farm. It can only be made in a lab. Contrary to popular belief, ascorbic acid and vitamin C are not the same thing. Ascorbic acid is not a complete vitamin, but really only the outer layer of the complete complex known as vitamin C. The complete complex of vitamin C as found in natural food sources is composed of these elements:

– Rutinbiofavonoids (vitamin P) factor K

– Factor Jfactor P Tyrosinase

– Ascorbinogen ascorbic acid

All of the above elements must be present in order for the body to absorb and benefit from the vitamin complex. Since synthetic ascorbic acid does not contain the full complex, your body must either gather the missing components from the body’s reservoir, or simply eliminate the ascorbic acid from the body through the urine without benefit to the body.

You’ll find ascorbic acid in all sorts of products, from vitamin C supplements to bottled tea drinks and fruit juices such as apple juice. The straightforward method to confirm its presence in a product is to simply read the ingredient label. However, as founder of AGM foods in Brisbane, Australia Alan Meyer found out, many times ascorbic acid can be found in foods even though it’s not listed on the ingredient label.

The microbe-neutralizing properties of ascorbic acid and its source of origin

Mr. Meyer had been following a recipe to make a fermented apple drink. The recipe called for pure apple juice, so he bought a bottle of organic apple juice. After running some tests on his concoction, he found that the apple juice had killed the friendly microbes in it even though according to ingredient label on the bottle there was nothing in the juice but organic apples. He ran the process again to confirm that it wasn’t just a fluke and sure enough the microbes were destroyed once more. After calling the company he found out that they were indeed adding ascorbic acid to the juice as a preservative to kill off bacteria. Unfortunately, ascorbic acid doesn’t just kill harmful bacteria, but also kills beneficial bacteria. Ascorbic acid has the same effect in our bodies as it does in juice.

Ascorbic acid is synthesized from corn syrup. So not only do we need to be concerned with its impact on intestinal flora, but with its potentially disastrous GMO corn-based origins. These days, if you cannot verify that any corn-based food that you consume is certified organic, you risk ingesting GMO corn, the health risks of which are well-known by knowledgeable NaturalNews readers.

The real vitamin C solution

Naturally-occurring vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C has the curious habit of breaking down when heated. This means that when food is heated, the vitamin breaks down and becomes useless. Since pasteurization is a form of heating (boiling to kill bacteria), any pasteurized beverage therefore becomes void of natural vitamin C complex. Ascorbic acid was therefore invented as a synthetic replacement of the natural form of vitamin C which is destroyed by heat. Unfortunately, ascorbic acid simply cannot replace the real, natural vitamin complex. Add to that the bacteria-neutralizing behavior of ascorbic acid which destroys health-critical beneficial microbes, and you have a substance which we’d all be better off to avoid as health-minded individuals.

So what is the solution to all this? The thing to do is avoid vitamin C supplements, pasteurized products, and pre-bottled teas and juices containing ascorbic acid. Get your vitamin C from natural, organic, uncooked fruits and vegetables. Some foods that contain the highest amounts of vitamin C are:

– Strawberries

– Citrus fruits

Acerola Cherry (fresh or powdered forms)

– Black Currant

– Papaya

Kiwi fruit

– Bell Pepper

– Guava

– Melons

– Brussel Sprouts

– Kale, chard, and spinach

– Broccoli

– Cauliflower

– Tomatoes

Again, remember to consume foods in their raw form. If heated, the natural vitamin C complex is destroyed.

via Synthetic vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, kills beneficial probiotic bacteria in the gut and cannot confer vitamin activity in the body.

Monsanto’s Food Paradigm is Over!!


There is a tremendous shift, a food revolution, if you will, taking place across the entire food system. Countermeasures are overtaking the toxic destruction of Monsanto and company each and every day, as consumers are waking up to the fact that they’ve been duped.

The master plan is to annihilate nature and remix the genetic makeup of life itself. It is quickly being recognized and converted into a massive emergency effort to regain a foothold on our health and our environment.

This is more than just a health and environmental emergency. It is a matter of morality, in that science itself shows that we are on the verge of causing a man-made disaster and extinction of our natural species if Monsanto continues to arrogantly and foolishly re-engineer life on this planet.

The Rubik’s cube remix of our genetic code, the very key to our existence, is causing a rapid destructive and mutant life force, never seen before in the history of science. It is taking up residence in the digestive system of our families and our animals.

The corn is registered as a pesticide because they engineer it to produce its own pesticide. It doesn’t stop producing even after production or consumption. It is wreaking havoc on our human and animal digestive systems.

Our health science community is reporting significant and clearly defined patterns of increased cancer, allergies, infertility, still birth, auto-immune disorders, liver problems, Autism and so much more.

There are answers and there are ways to combat this dangerous cycle. Organic foods do not contain GMOs. Why are they expensive? Because they have to jump through the extensive hoops of certification to prove that they are producing crops free of these dangerous contaminants. In the long run, Organics are cheaper when you think about the damage GMO food does to your health and that of your family. It’s your choice. Choose wisely. Vote with your fork and contact your favorite product’s manufacturers and ask them to stop using GMO ingredients. They will listen. They will respond. Thank you!!

the Organic Review: Study Shows Junk Food Linked to Infertility


Eating a diet full of processed junk food is inevitably asking for some health issues. Refined sugars, blanched carbohydrates, bad fats like hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, and chemical ingredients such as BHT are common additives in most of the foods that millions of Americans consume on a daily basis. Unless one is persistently conscientious about what they are putting into their bodies and research food ingredients and constantly read food labels, there is a great chance that they are ingesting unhealthy processed foods.

An array of health problems can occur from eating junk foods, such as hypertension, type-2 diabetes, and high cholesterol. One growing issue that many Americans probably overlook as being caused by a junk food diet, though, is infertility.

A recent study published in the Journal Human Reproduction shows a connection between low sperm counts and a high-fat junk food diet. “In this preliminary cross-sectional study, high intake of saturated fats was negatively related to sperm concentration whereas higher intake of omega-3 fats was positively related to sperm morphology,” details the study.

Researchers asked 99 men questions about their eating habits while examined their sperm. Those men who displayed the most intakes of unhealthy fats had about a 43% lower count of sperm and 38% lower sperm concentration than those men who consumed less unhealthy fats and ate healthier fats such as Omega-3s. The men who ate more Omega-3s also interestingly showed “sperm with a more normal structure” than the men with the high unhealthy fat consumption.

Other studies in the past have shown similar results, only adding more reasoning behind why eating a diet full of processed junk food negatively impacts health.

Fast-growth, antibiotic-fed chicken for KFC, McDonalds


Shanxi Suhai Group has recently attracted farmers to breed chicken for it, claiming in its advertisement that it provides them with technology for quick growth of chickens able to be used by restaurants in 45 days. They say that they will purchase as many chickens as the farmers are able to breed, as they have KFC, McDonald’s and large supermarket chains as their customers.

However, farmers have to use the chicken feed prepared by the group.

It turns out that the group uses lots of industrial salt, choline chloride and antibiotics in preparing the feed. Its feed plant is so stinking that its smell causes nausea to people far away from the plant.

Workers in the plant said that some additives are mixed in the feed. They do not know what they are but are sure they are harmful to human health as all the flies die when they come near the plant. They say that young people dare not work in the plant.

However, the group argues that the industrial salt is used to soften the water, while choline chloride is a nutritious food additive allowed by the state.

As for antibiotics, chicken farmers say that they are required to breed 5,000 chickens in one shed. Chickens easily become sick in a shed with such density. Therefore, the chickens are constantly fed with antibiotics.

However, the group argues that feeding chickens with antibiotics is just like giving patents antibiotics as medicine to cure their diseases. It stresses that the effect to human health is “negligible.”

We all know patients are given antibiotics only when necessary and it’s harmful for healthy people to take antibiotics. Abusive use of antibiotics is very harmful, but the group simply does not care as long as it can make profit.

Big demand for non-oral coffee

Coffee that can be injected, snorted or put up your arse will soon be available on the high street.

 

Consumers claim that however much caffeine there is in a Starbucks’s grande, it’s nowhere near enough and that current dosages of oral coffee were Woefully inadequate

Coffee designer Tom Logan said: “Our society’s caffeine tolerance has reached a point where traditional ‘drinking’ coffee is no longer effective. By the time it’s been absorbed through your stomach wall, you’ve lost a lot of that ‘kick’.”

“Research shows consumers are increasingly open to taking coffee anally. Also via the eyes.

“We’ve developed a special ‘Eye-a-cino’ that you administer under your eyelids with a pipette. The caffeine starts to work instantly and the permanent ocular damage is offset by a competitive edge in meetings.

“We’re also working on ‘Captain’s Blend’ suppositories but our marketing team says its hard to make putting things up your bum seem aspirational.”

Sales manager Emma Bradford said: “I’ve taken to crushing coffee beans and snorting them off a pen lid but the pain is quite intense, you have to stagger around holding your face and thumping the wall.

“It does sort you out though.”

Company director Stephen Malley said: “Even making deliberate paper cuts and rubbing coffee into them can’t keep me alert. Now I have to pay a ‘personal assassin’ to constantly to try to kill me throughout the working day.

“He hides under desks with a straight razor, always ready to pounce.”
