Just Because It Is Organic Doesn’t Mean It Is Safe … Organic Carrageenan

Posted in Cancer, Cardio - Heart Health, Diabetes, Disease, Health, Inflamation, Knowledge is Power Series, Nutrition on 26.10.14


Here is another plug for eating un-processed foods free of additives like the one I am about to talk about called carrageenan. Eating foods in their whole organic form instead of buying them packaged like the ready to eat meals and dishes so prevalent today, will always be what I advise. Want to eat some soup now that the colder months are heading our way? Make your own. Here is how easy it is …. buy some chicken, put it in a pot of boiling water and let it cook til it drops off the bone. Let it cool, remove the bones, add your favorite veggies and some organic sea salt and wa la – soup’s on. It really is that easy. You don’t need a ton of spices for fancy ingredients to make a pot of soup. I make a big pot and then put it into quart canning jars. I place the jars in the freezer with the lids on loosely. Once the soup is frozen, I secure the lids and call it a day. Now I have plenty of fresh organic soup ready to go.

You can do the same with beef or with most any meat for that matter. Feeling overwhelmed with little time to fuss? Get a crock pot. Toss in a chick and some veggies and some water, salt and pepper and in a few hours; you’ll have a meal in a pot, free of additives and other harmful ingredients.

Want some ice cream, go get an ice cream maker and make it yourself. Turn it into a family affair or a party. Enjoy the process of preparing foods that will not harm you. Want to know why I am talking about this now?

I’m now reading about another food additive called carrageenan AKA Chondrus Crispus AKA Irish moss, which is extracted from red seaweed. It has no nutritional value. It is being used as a thickener in cottage cheese, soy milk, ice cream, yogurt as well as other processed foods. What could be bad you ask? After all it is natural; it comes from a natural source, red seaweed. Well according to what I am reading, research has been done numerous times and the findings were not good. In fact, studies found that undegraded carrageenan, which is the type that is widely used in prepared foods, was associated with malignancies and other stomach issues. I’d like to mention that the difference between degraded and undegraded carrageenan is found in the molecular weight. Undegraded carrageenan has the higher weight.

A prominent researcher, Joanne K. Tobacman, M.D., has published 18 peer-reviewed studies over the years that specifically addressed the effects of carrageenan. She is convinced that it is harmful to humans. Her research shows that exposure to carrageenan causes inflammation and it didn’t matter if it was degraded or undegraded. Dr. Tobacman also noted that carrageenan was also used by drug investigators in the past. They knowingly used it to cause inflammation when they were doing testing on the anti-inflammatory properties of new drugs that they were trying to bring to market. It was actually proven in testing on lab mice. They found that when mice were exposed to low doses of carrageenan for 18 days, the mice developed a profound intolerance to glucose along with impaired insulin action which eventually leads to diabetes. Remember this was after 18 days of low dose exposure. Now that is scary especially when the incidents of diabetes is climbing astronomically especially among our children.

I have been reading more and more about inflammation these days. Could this be another additive substance that we need to be on the look out for? It is well known that chronic inflammation is a root cause for many illnesses including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cancer and heart disease. I can tell you this, if anyone is experiencing stomach and/or digestive issues like inflammatory bowel disease, I would seriously start looking at your labels and if this substance is in it, stop eating it immediately. In my book, we have enough digestive issues to worry about with the consumption of genetically modified food. Now it seems that there is yet another that will be causing major havoc on our internal body functions.

Look, we already have enough substances that are added to our food supply that we need to be weary of. Do we need to have another one? Really? It is exhausting to try to keep up. Now you know why I don’t consume processed foods. Every time you turn around there is something else that we have to be on the lookout for. What people may not realize is just because it is a “natural” and even an “organic” substance, doesn’t mean it is good for us. Lead is a natural substance found in mineral deposits in the earth. So is arsenic. Need I say more?

The Doctor Is In Q & A – Cardiovascular – Preventing Heart Attacks

Posted in Cardio - Heart Health, Inflamation, The Doctor Is In, Vitamin B(s) on 21.08.14


Q.   Dear Dr. Pearson,   I was recently told by a friend that I should be taking a good B Complex supplement. They said it has something to do with heart function but couldn’t elaborate beyond that. They also didn’t know a good brand to recommend. Could you please let me know the importance of B vitamins and maybe suggest a brand that is of good quality?
Thank you, D.S., Phoenix, AZ

a624015459f54f02A.  Dear D.S.      Do you know what you’re Homocysteine level is? If you don’t, you should. This silent heart (cardiovascular system) inflammatory marker can be a sign of a future heart attack or stroke waiting to happen. When you hear of people dropping dead of a heart attack with no other risk factors, normal cholesterol, normal blood pressure, and they are physically fit, often times it’s due to this common inflammatory condition that is very specific to the arteries throughout the body. Without adequate broad spectrum B vitamins the arteries become inflamed and ‘sticky’, which begins the process of plaque formation as the body tries to heal the wound. By simply replacing the B vitamins adequately, and sometimes correcting thyroid dysfunction as well, the body is able to heal the artery and prevent future plaques. Of course, Big Pharma won’t support homocysteine claims as they have no drug to sell, but this is a widely known and very important marker to be checked when you get your next blood test done. PureCell B Complex is a brand that I would recommend. Not all B supplements are the same. Many are made with inferior or even synthetic ingredients. I recommend and sell PureCell supplements because you can’t beat the strength and purity of this brand.
