Most Vitamins Are Now Made In China

You may be surprised to know China is one of the largest exporters of many drugs and vitamins. About 90 percent of all Vitamin C sold in the United States is from China, for example.

The Chinese also produce 50 percent of the world's aspirin and 35 percent of all Tylenol. Ditto for the majority of Vitamins A, B12 and E.

Hot on the heels of the poisoned pet food scandal, and reported instances of toxic food and toothpaste, all eyes are now turning toward the Chinese vitamin market. How safe are they?

The industry in China appears to be split between top-notch operations and bottom-of-the-barrel producers. Since the United States does not require country-of-origin labels for any of our drugs, foods or supplements, there is no telling where that vitamin you are taking came from.

China also suffers from the same conflict of interest that we are seeing here in the United States, where the regulators have financial interest in the industries they are supposed to regulate and inspect.

Ritalin and Brain Damage in Children

Many thousands of school age children are taking a drug called Ritalin to treat attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. But according to the Society for Neuroscience, Ritalin is capable of causing long-term damage to the brain.

Animal experiments showed that Ritalin, in doses that a child would get, actually caused changes in cell structure and function similar to the damage caused by cocaine and amphetamine use. Not that this is surprising.

Virtually all prescription drugs are toxic and should be avoided. It is difficult to think of a drug for which there isn't an effective, less expensive and safer alternative.

Folic Acid Deficiency Linked to Disease.

Once again, folic acid deficiency has been linked to disease. A study presented at the recent annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research has found that when genetically susceptible people do not have adequate amounts of folate in their diet, their susceptibility to bladder cancer is three-fold higher.

Folic acid deficiency has been linked to many diseases, including heart disease, cleft palate and Alzheimer's. Now a connection has been made to bladder cancer. Why is folic acid so important? Folate is critical to DNA repair. The body's ability to repair damaged DNA is essential to maintaining normal genetic structure and functioning. When folate is lacking, unrepaired DNA damage can lead to a variety of diseases, including bladder cancer.

Prevention should include avoidance of DNA damaging agents, such as medical x-rays, and consumption of folate-rich foods, such as green leafy vegetables, along with high quality supplements such as BarleyLife Xtra.

Diet and Exercise Keep the Invisible Fat Off Too

Some doctors now believe internal fat surrounding vital organs could be as dangerous as more obvious external fat.

What's more, people who maintain a slim appearance through diet alone, without exercise, are likely to have major deposits of internal fat. As one doctor put it, "Being thin doesn't automatically mean you're not fat."

Doctors are concerned that those without the clear warning signal of exterior fat may be falsely assuming that they are healthy. In fact, they still could be at risk for diabetes or heart disease.

Researchers who scanned some 800 male and female patients with MRI machines that plotted internal fat maps found that as many as 45 percent of women and 60 percent of men with normal BMI scores (20 to 25) had excessive levels of internal fat. Researchers even found "TOFIs" (people who are "thin outside, fat inside") who were professional models.
