GETTING YOUR CAT TO EAT THE FOOD
Their hidden role is to charge you with something, so that you can be used as a battery to charge the corporations corpses or dead entities of the Dark Forces groups of demons and their New World Order. My husband is Keto and I am Palio so we are trying to find things we both can have and this is it. My lunch is a chicken salad with very light dressing. I agree, the chocolate shake made me wired! They are blackballed, discredited, and stripped of their licenses. Also, read our Nutrition article to learn about which specific foods to include in your diet to gain muscle and get big. Hi Wazhma — A healthy range of weight loss is about pounds per week pounds over the course of two months.
I still work full time. I feel generally fitter. I use 1 measure of the SuperBerry mix and 1 of the SuperGreens each day to which I add a cup of low fat almond milk and what ever fresh fruit - banana, melon, or berries, and ice and use this as a meal replacement for breakfast.
On the weekends I use only 1 measure of the SuperBerry mix with the milk and fruit, for lunch. Have lost some weight, about 6 lbs but clothing is no longer tight. Just wanted to say Thank You. This product is impressive- I've researched it a fair amount and have a lot more to learn for sure. However, from what I've seen and in comparison to similar products, yours may very well be by far the very best there is, and that is quite an accomplishment.
I'm going to try to buy this for the rest of my life Very nice work Sir. After a few weeks of drinking LivingFuel as a meal replacement for breakfast I feel noticeably better overall. I am convinced I was missing certain nutrients in my diet that are now present, and it really makes a difference in energy, sleep and well-being I blend one scoop each of berry and greens in 18oz of water with half a banana and one raw pastured egg.
It tastes good and the results are pretty amazing. From the story of how it came to be and sparked by the nature of its best intentions is what about Living Fuel that really did change the World for the good. That is definitely something. I do still eat some other foods in the evening, but I truly love the quality and ease of the L. I need to write a review in your website soon!! SuperGreens and SuperBerry have allowed me to better accomplish so many of my physical and even career goals.
I just ordered LivingProtein because I'm upping my physical exercise. I'm sure it will be excellent like everything else you guys create. Much love and God Bless. Thank you for everything and a shout out to Elliot Hulse for leading me here. I will continue 'sharing' your wonderful product with many others I come in contact with, too.
I absolutely love your products and have noticed a significant improvement in my digestion more specifically, my bowel movements since beginning my breakfast smoothie protocol!!! I do have a concern.
I am trying to heal what my holistic practitioner and I believe to be a very mild case of leaky gut. Are your products safe for consumption during this healing process? Living Fuel Hi Amanda and thanks for your message.

Always good to check first with your holistic practitioner as they may have you on a particular nutritional protocol. I've been using the Superberry Original, Supergreens and Living Protein powders for the past week and have lost 5 pounds!
I was taking the 7 Day Challenge but on the 7th day only took them twice instead of all three meals. Measurement of changes in the organism were made by means of Kirlian photography, GSR measurements of acupuncture points, Alpha wave detectors, and subjective responses.
Kirlian photography ia a technique for recording photographic images of corona discharges and hence, the auras of living creatures. The Kitlian photography images below are representative but not part of the actual studies described in this article. Several hundred photographs were made of fingerprints and leaves before and after treatment with the pyramid. Photographs were taken in both color and black and white. The fact that the energy content of the picture is larger and the shape is more rounded indicated an increase in aura without any loss of energy.
A more dramatic effect was obtained with a geranium leaf. The leaf had been off the plant for half an hour when the first photo was taken. The energy field was almost completely gone as the leaf was dying. The best results were obtained when the pyramids were set up outside the building.
The reason for this will be described in the next section on theory. Several hundred people have sat in the 6 foot base plastic pyramids. The tests were first run on friends who were asked to sit in the pyramid for half an hour and then asked to describe their feelings when they were in the structure. The subjects were given no indication of what to expect. A number of people decided they wanted pyramids of their own.
My own body energy has increased since I began sleeping in the pyramid tent. An effect reported by many is a sense of time distortion. Meditation Many of the subjects were interested in psychic phenomena and practice various forms of meditation. ALL subjects who practice meditation have reported a significant increase in the effects of meditation in the pyramid. No extensive tests have been conducted on animals at this time.
There are however, three cases of interest. The cat liked the pyramid and began to sleep in it. When the test was begun, the cat had been a voracious meat eater. After 6 weeks, the cat stopped eating meat and starved rather than eat meat. Subsequent tests indicated that the cat had changed his diet and would only eat fruit and vegetables, cheese and nuts.
The animal became a vegetarian! He ate raw vegetables and fruits of all descriptions; canteloupe, avocado, oranges, and watermelon. The same thing happened to another cat as well as my own poodle. The test plants were alfalfa sprouts.
I had some familiarity with sprouts as I had grown over pounds of them in the confines of my office! The sprouts were treated three different ways: In all cases, identical tests were made in an identical volume cubic box as a control structure. In all cases, the pyramid treated plants grew 2 to 3 times as fast as the controls, were more healthy and lasted longer after harvest. It may be placed in the pyramid in a container for a period of time depending on the size of the pyramid and the amount of water treated.
Another technique is to run water into a spiral coil placed in the pyramid and fashioned into a form of fountain. Four inch holes were cut in the sides for full ventilation. The sprouts were grown entirely in the pyramid. The controls were grown entirely in a well ventilated equal volume cube.
Treatment of Seeds The seeds were placed in pyramid for 8 hours. The water and plant treatments were best, the seed treatment was last. The pyramid grown sprouts lasted over a week without spoilage after harvesting. The controls on the other hand lasted 24 to 36 hours before spoilage. Because of the dehydration or mummification of foods in the pyramid, I tried a number of experiments to see if the dehydration rate is accelerated in the pyramid.
Normal dehydration occurs, the difference being that items placed in the pyramid do not decay while dehydrating. Sprouts grown in the pyramid and left without water 24 hours do not die and decay as the controls do. The controls developed odor and died. The sprouts in the pyramid dehydrated slightly but did not decay and resumed normal growth when watering was resumed. During my original tests on mummification of foods, I used to taste the foods being treated to make sure they were really good.
Although there was no sign of decay, I wanted to see how the food tasted as it was undergoing the process of mummification. I was in for a great surprise! Not only did the foods taste good, they tasted better than they did before they were placed in the structure! I began experimenting in earnest, and discovered that the pyramid could have an effect on the taste of food even when the food was treated for a surprisingly short duration. I was so impressed by this new discovery that I began a series of double blind tests on the change of taste in foods.
I used several dozen people, and the test was conducted as follows: The foods were all taken from the same source, that is the foods tested were the same food divided in half so the control would be the same as the treated sample except for the treatment. The samples were then placed in paper cups with numbers on the bottoms.
The cups were then divided and recorded in a master file. The ones chosen for the pyramid were then treated for five minutes in the pyramid. The pyramid used for the tests was the 6 inch base ventilated. The cups of food were then all mixed at random so no one knew which food was which.
Taste tests were conducted and 40 out of 48 people chose the foods treated in the pyramid as being more to their liking. I like hundred percent results, so I interviewed the ones who missed on some of the foods and learned they were either heavy smokers or drinkers. Subsequent interviews with a licensed wine taster confirmed my suspicions that people with certain eating and drinking habits cannot distinguish taste very well. The foods tested were of all types; sweet, sour, various alcohols, fruits, and tobaccos: Bitter and sour foods lose their bite, they become milder.
Sweet foods become sweeter. Coffee loses its bitterness and tastes as if it were acid free. Fruits increase in their qualities. Acid tasting pineapple loses its acid taste and becomes as sweet as fresh ripe pineapple picked right out of the field.
Tobacco loses its harshness: Mexican black tobacco loses its harshness and tastes like mild choice Virginia. The most dramatic effects occurred on pipe tobacco, unfiltered cigarettes, and cigars.
One of my associates smokes a very harsh unfiltered brand and uses a crystal type filter cigarette holder. When his cigarettes were treated in the pyramid, he noticed he did not have to change his filter crystal so often. Instead of changing it between every pack, he now has to change it after every three or four packs. People who had whole cartons of their brands treated with the pyramid came back wanting their new cigarettes treated because they could not stand the harsh taste of their normal brand after smoking pyramid treated cigarettes.
Bananas and other perishables keep longer if they are treated in the pyramid for half an hour after they are purchased. Controls all turned bad in a short time, and the fruits treated in the pyramids kept fresh up to twice as long as the controls. Cut flowers take longer to die if they are placed in pyramid treated water. Speaking of water, tests were run on the taste of regular city water treated in the pyramid. The water used to water the plants. All people who made the tests noticed the pyramid water tasted fresher and had less of a chemical or chlorine taste than the water which was untreated.
This research involved the construction of over twenty large pyramids in 8 different locations in Russia and the Ukraine. All the Russian pyramids are made of fiberglass with the largest standing an incredible feet high 44 meters tall, and weighing in at over 55 tons. Built at cost over 1 million dollars this Russian pyramid is a modern wonder. Many different experiments are being done using these pyramids. They include studies in medicine, ecology, agriculture, physics, and health sciences.
What is significant about this work is that it is being carried out by top scientists in Russia and Ukraine and not fringe elements or unknown inventors. Some of the amazing pyramid power research being done is showing great promise for all mankind. Immune system of organisms improved blood leukocyte composition increased. Improved regeneration of tissue. Soon after construction of the Lake Seliger pyramid a marked improvement of the ozone was noted above the area.
Seismic activity near the pyramid research areas are reduced in severity and size. Violent weather also appears to decrease in the vicinity of the pyramids. A study was done on prisoners who ingested salt and pepper that had been exposed to the pyramid energy field. The test subjects exhibited a greatly reduced violence rate and overall behavior was much improved. Standard tissue culture tests showed an increase in survival of cellular tissue after infection by viruses and bacteria. Radioactive substances show a decreased level of radiation inside the pyramid.
There are reports of spontaneous charging of capacitors. Physicists observed significant changes in superconductivity temperature thresholds and in the properties of semi-conducting and carbon nano materials. Water inside the pyramid will remain liquid to minus 40 degrees Celsius but freeze instantly if jostled or bumped in any way.
It is interesting to note that results seem to show that increasing the height of the pyramid improves the quality of the results. The Russian Pyramids Revealed: During the period National has been in power several draconian law changes where pushed through. One of them the the way the police can search your home and the way they can spy on you. While most law abiding citizens assumed that it was to help the police find real nasty criminals such as drug dealers and gang members involved in crime or dangerous terrorists, for those of us political activists and bloggers it was just a matter of time for these powers to be used for the intimidation of people involved in activism of any kind.
The Kleinen family being a perfect example of people who are active and politically aware and who still had a modicum of trust in the system. From the article you will learn that they are no longer willing to cooperate with the police or even contact them.
For them to find out a year after the fact that the police had been in their home secretly in January and had taken personal and private information as well as samples of their DNA without their knowledge as well as raiding their home another time in March when they were present broke whatever trust they have and it will do so for a lot more people. While the fact that the police can enter your home without your presence, secretly and without supervision is terrifying in and of itself just imagine what could happen if this becomes the norm and the police see this as a normal part of their investigation.
Some 20 million Russians were killed in Russia by Stalin whose secret police and KGB torture centres and kangaroo court judges were willingly complicit in doing just that! US markets are closed today for the Martin Luther King Day and the three-day holiday weekend at a time of falling international markets added to investor nervousness. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 15, Low oil prices have resulted in a supply glut, which will be exacerbated by the lifting of sanctions against Iran.
But it is the situation in China that has dominated thinking among market analysts. China has borrowed huge amounts to stimulate its economy, leading to serious overcapacity in everything from factories to luxury apartments.
This has fuelled concerns of a hard landing in the Chinese economy, one of the main drivers of world economic growth. Although the US is slowly recovering [horseshit], investors have turned their attention to how it might be affected by overseas events.
Some say this could lead to a rerun of the global financial crisis. But others point out this was caused by heavy indebtedness and this is no longer a feature of the US economy [more horseshit]. Further, super-low interest rates mean households are now devoting Banks are also in a far better position to absorb losses than during the global financial crisis. Countering this is the lack of monetary or other tools to stimulate the economy. The article states that this elaborate web of conspiracies will tie back to the alien cover-up that took center stage in the older series.
The case is the latest legal effort to hold accountable dozens of bankers involved in a global rate-fixing scheme, which also involved the Euribor's British counterpart, the London Interbank Offered Rate Libor. The Foreign Policy Journal reports:. The email makes clear that intelligence sources indicate the impetus behind the French attack on Libya was a calculated move to consolidate greater power, using NATO as a tool for imperialist conquest, not a humanitarian intervention as the public was falsely led to believe.
According to the email:. The email provides a peek behind the curtain to reveal how foreign policy is often carried out in practice. While reported in the media that the Western-backed Libyan military intervention is necessary to save human lives, the real driving factor behind the intervention was shown to be the fact that Gaddafi planned to create a high degree of economic independence with a new pan-African currency, which would lessen French influence and power in the region.
The evidence indicates that when French intelligence became aware of the Libyan initiative to create a currency to compete with the Western central banking system, the decision to subvert the plan through military means began, ultimately including the NATO alliance.
The BDI is one of the key indicators that experts look at when they are trying to determine where the global economy is heading. And right now, it is telling us that we are heading into a major worldwide economic downturn. Some people try to dismiss the recent drop in the Baltic Dry Index by claiming that shipping rates are down because there is simply too much capacity out there these days.
For example, Chinese shipyards reported a 59 percent decline in orders during the first 11 months of …. The global economy is a mess, but many people are not paying any attention to the economic fundamentals because they are too busy looking at the stock market. The stock market does not tell us how the economy is doing. If the stock market is up today that does not mean that the economy is doing well, and if the stock market is down tomorrow that does not mean that it is doing poorly.
Yes, the health of the financial markets can greatly affect the overall economy. We saw this back in When there is a tremendous amount of panic, that can cause a credit crunch and make it very difficult for money to flow through our system. The end result is a rapid slowdown of economic activity, and it is something that we will be experiencing again very soon. Just because the Dow was up points today does not mean that the crisis is over. It is important to remember that stocks are not going to go down every single day.
Even in bear markets there are up days, and some of the biggest up days in stock market history were right in the middle of the crash of It is critical that we take a long-term view of things and not let our vision be clouded by every tick up and down in the financial markets.
Things are already bad, and they are rapidly getting worse. And let us not forget the great amount of financial carnage that has already happened so far this year. According to CNBC , approximately 3. It has also been the worst-ever start to a year for U.
If those years seem familiar to you, that is because they should. In all three years, we witnessed historic stock market crashes. The stunning collapse of the Baltic Dry Index is just more evidence that we have entered a global deflationary crisis. Around the globe, there have been dramatic stock market crashes to begin the year, and we should expect to see much more market turmoil during the weeks and months to come. If the markets have calmed down a bit for the moment, we should be very thankful for that, because we could all use some additional time to prepare for what is coming.
The debt-fueled standard of living that so many of us are enjoying today is just an illusion. A great shaking is coming to the global economy, and the pain is going to be unimaginable. The Security Council report comes just months after the Kremlin announced a stop to the production of all GMO-containing foods, which was seen by the international community as a major step in the fight against multinationals like Monsanto. Russia continues to lead the way in the realm of natural, organic farming.
If you do not cease and desist, what is soon to come will be blood on your hands, cause untold suffering, and all for naught as far as your designs are concerned.
We hereby officially notify all those complicit in this massive control program that: We are aware of your destructive programs to sicken and alter humanity through the chemical, electromagnetic and genetic modification of our food, plants, animals and ourselves. We are aware of your wanton destruction of our earth, skies and oceans through resource exploitation, geoengineering and weather modification. We are aware of your fascist medical designs to drain and destroy humanity via the decrepit allopathic medical system based on profit and ill health at every level, including the proliferation of pharmaceuticals, invasive and debilitating treatments and deliberately damaging vaccines.
We are aware of your moves toward a worldwide police state based on hyperbolized fear and disinformation to manipulate humanity in order to get an unspoken imprimatur to execute your program of control and subjugation.
We are aware that your political crony establishment is all staged and designed to distract from the real issues and keep the populace occupied and feeling like participants while you work your nefarious program.
We are aware of your falsely imposed vampiristic taxation system to fund further bureaucratic bloat, controls and an overarching agenda of genocidal wars on innocent peoples, and that it is arbitrary and our sovereign choice to simply not participate in any longer. We are aware that a select few major corporations with vested interests in this global agenda now control almost all media and that mass media is nothing more than a mouthpiece of propaganda to these ends. We are aware of your AI, electromagnetic grid and mind manipulating designs and technologies that are being imposed to further expand your psychopathic control program.
We are aware that you repress emerging technologies that threaten existing parasitic profitable ones, such as the hazardous petroleum and nuclear industries, when alternative energy sources and other such solutions have arisen for many decades which you have suppressed. We are aware that you sequester knowledge and information in a vast array of fields to keep the general populace in the dark and thereby disempowered as to our true historical context, while you are coveting secret information and carrying out advanced covert research for your own ends.
We are aware that you have stigmatized, marginalized and seek to outlaw any form of criticism, questioning or dissent using whatever excuse you can manufacture. We are aware of your oppressive, enslaving monetary and legal control scams, private fractionalized banking pillaging, and twisted cravings for money and power in an imposed control system that never needed to exist in the first place.
We are aware of your falsely postured institutions, foundations, institutes, charitable organizations and international bodies such as the so-called United Nations and its many agencies and agendas being used to further develop your global control plans and programs. We are aware of your secret societies, blood line allegiances and luciferian, freemasonic, Babylonian and otherworldy roots that propel the wickedness of your self appointed leaders. We are aware of your ritual sacrifices, paedophelia and bestiality inclinations and other sordid practices, all of which are anathema to our conscious race.
Furthermore… We are aware that you know we are on to you. You are shallow, self-serving and seriously misled guns for hire working for a control system being engineered by powers beyond your knowledge that will devour you, just as you seek to devour us. We are aware of who you are. Your days are numbered. Your designs will soon be visited upon your heads if you do not drastically change your ways.
Universal law dictates it. You know it, and we know it. Hence your sloppy, miscreant behavior being so thoroughly exposed which you so furiously attempt to deny and suppress.
If there is an ounce of humanity left in any of you, defect and help us expose and bring down these life ending forces. You, your children, your grandchildren and anything you may still hold dear are already suffering and will also perish in the catastrophe we are soon destined for if you do not respond. We are awake and activated. We will do everything within and without our personal power to see our race and planet survive and shake this parasitic invasion.
Our planet itself will not take this attempted overthrow. Know that, and expect repercussions from Her, as well as us, a gathering storm of sacred truth you cannot possibly fathom. Your opposition, resistance and puny, short-sighted efforts are dwarfed by what awaits you. Will you find your humanity in time? We think many of you could, and those of you who do will be welcomed amongst the awakened.
However, we realize many are beyond redemption. Just watch and see. We will surprise you, just as you fear. We cannot be stopped nor thwarted by any means despite your flimsy efforts. The truth and love we bear are coming for you.
Truth and cosmic resonance cannot be denied and any aberration from it will be mitigated. And those professionals within the modern Church of Science are severely punished when they leave the fold and accuse their former masters of lies and crimes.
They are blackballed, discredited, and stripped of their licenses. At the very least. These are the tests. These are the possible results and what they mean.
This is what they do. This is how they can be changed and substituted and manipulated. These are the outcomes.
There can be no argument about them. These are the components of life. All change and improvement result from our management of the components. It is governed by truth which our science reveals. We will inform you when you stray. We will report new improvements.
You can go no farther. You must give up the ghost. We will remember you. We are now witnessing the acceleration of Official Science. Of course, that term is an internal contradiction. But the State shrugs and moves forward. The notion that the State can put its seal on favored science, enforce it, and punish its competitors, is anathema to a free society. An absurdity on its face. And then refusing to investigate or punish the purveyors of these drug approvals the FDA.
And then, arbitrarily announcing that the herbicide, Roundup, for which many of these crops are specifically designed, is non-toxic. Others of you have found my work more recently. I always return to the subject of false science, because it is the most powerful long-term instrument for repression, political control, and destruction of human life.
Unfortunately, medical science, on many fronts, has been hijacked and taken over. The profit motive is one objective, but beyond that, there is a more embracing goal:.
But also consider this: They are crusaders imbued with group-think. They live in an absurd Twilight Zone where fear of germs the tiny invisible terrorists demands coercive action against the individuals who see through the whole illusion. This is what official science can achieve. One of my favorite examples of double-think or reverse-think is the antibody test. It is given to diagnosis diseases. Antibodies are immune-system scouts sent out to identify germ-intruders, which can then be wiped out by other immune-system troops.
Prior to , the prevailing view of a positive test was: After , the view was suddenly: Within the medical community, no one with very few exceptions raised hell over this massive switch.
It was actually good for business. I was told the following: That is the whole purpose of a vaccine: However, I was informed, patients receiving this vaccine would be given a letter to carry with them, in case they were ever tested for HIV and came up positive. In other words, the very same antibodies were either protective against AIDS good or indicative of deadly disease bad. This was the contradictory and ridiculous and extraordinary pronouncement of official science.
It carries over into every disease for which an antibody test is administered. If a vaccine against disease X is given, it delivers immunity, because it produces antibodies. But if a diagnostic test for disease X reveals the presence of the same antibodies, this is taken a sign of illness.
Extrapolated to a more general level, the Word is: It no longer astonishes me. I see it everywhere in official science. We are now living in a society where an incurable itch to meddle everywhere and at all times is the standard. A new definition of Reality emerges: Among the substances is Roundup , a highly toxic herbicide which is the most used in the world; Polychlorinated biphenyls - persistent organic pollutants that affect human and animal fertility - , Lasso - a herbicide that is now banned in Europe -, and 2,4,5-T - a component of Agent Orange that was used by the US military during the Vietnam War that causes cancer and congenital malformations.
We are in Paris this month to address the most serious threat that humans have ever faced in our , year evolution - global warming and climate disruption. Why is there so much carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide in the atmosphere and not enough carbon organic matter in the soil?
Since the beginning of the twentieth century, Monsanto has developed a steady stream of highly toxic products which have permanently damaged the environment and caused illness or death for thousands of people. PCBs polychlorinated biphenyl , one of the 12 Persistent Organic Pollutants POP that affect human and animal fertility; 2,4,5 T 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid , a dioxin-containing component of the defoliant, Agent Orange, which was used by the US Army during the Vietnam War and continues to cause birth defects and cancer; Lasso, an herbicide that is now banned in Europe; And RoundUp, the most widely used herbicide in the world, and the source of the greatest health and environmental scandal in modern history.
This toxic herbicide, designated a probable human carcinogen by the World Health Organization, is used in combination with genetically modified GM RoundUp Ready seeds in large-scale monocultures, primarily to produce soybeans, maize and rapeseed for animal feed and biofuels. The court will also rely on the Rome Statute that created the International Criminal Court in The Hague in , and it will consider whether to reform international criminal law to include crimes against the environment, or ecocide, as a prosecutable criminal offense.
The International Criminal Court, established in in The Hague, has determined that prosecuting ecocide as a criminal offense is the only way to guarantee the rights of humans to a healthy environment and the right of nature to be protected.

But a new study confirms something we have been reporting on since our inception: In most cases, screening not only has not "saved lives," but actually increases your risk of dying. American Cancer Society admits conventional cancer treatment causes more cancer An extremely important new study published in the British Medical Journal titled, " Why cancer screening has never been shown to "save lives" - and what we can do about it , " confirms something we have been reporting upon at GreenMedInfo.
Worse, in some cases overall mortality actually increased because of screening. In the new study, Vinay Prasad and colleagues, argue that the real benchmark for the success of any cancer screening program is if the "early stage" cancers being diagnosed and treated actually result in a reduction in the overall mortality.
Tens of fhousands of women are diagnosed each year with these so-called "early stage breast cancers," even though the National Cancer Institute itself acknowledges it should be classified as a benign or indolent lesions of epithelial origin. The New England Journal of Medicine published a study in shows that approximately 1. In reality, most suffered irreparable harm not from the "cancer," but from both the psychological and physical effects of being wrongly diagnosed and treated. Using disease specific mortality as a proxy for overall mortality deprives people of information about their chief concern: In this article we argue that overall mortality should be the benchmark against which screening is judged and discuss how to improve the evidence upon which screening rests.
And so, without the proper benchmark or end point, all the educational and fund-raising efforts going towards "reducing deaths" or "saving lives" from breast, prostate, lung, skin, brain, [insert body part], become misleading, if not overtly propagandist in nature. Indeed, the extant scientific evidence itself reveals that at best the present disease specific agenda for "cancer prevention" is pseudo-scientific. In the section of the study subtitled, "Why cancer screening might not reduce overall mortality," the authors summarize what the literature reveals on the topic:.
We hope the new BMJ study raises a flag of true caution for those who may habitually and uncritically follow the celebrity-centric herd mentality. The significant harms of screening overdiagnosis and overtreatment extend to men as well. A study found that an astounding , men are being diagnosed annually with prostate cancer. In other words, millions of men were diagnosed with a potentially lethal "pre-cancer" or "early stage cancer" they never had.
As an aside, it should be noted that even in the case of lesions of true concern for malignancy, there is always hope. Cancer, in this view, can be halted in its tracks, and even regressed, assuming that, along with informational corrections e. HGPIN , and detection of incidental findings i. The Cancer Industry Owns The Media And Your Mind ," the public is intentionally misled into believing a priori cancer screening saves lives even when no real, independent scientific evidence exists to support it.
The new study reveals just how truly inflated the public's expectations have become:. Advocates of screening have emphasised its benefits, sometimes verging on fear mongering. Others, including us, think that shared decision making should be the focus. But as long as we are unsure of the mortality benefits of screening we cannot provide people with the information they need to make an informed choice.
We must be honest about this uncertainty. A summary of the Swiss medical board's decision not to recommend mammography shows that for every women who undergo screening one breast cancer death is averted from five to four , while non-breast cancer deaths either remain at 39 or may increase to If non-breast cancer deaths remain the same, a woman must weigh net benefit against harms.
If screening increases non-breast cancer deaths to 40, women would simply be trading one type of death for another, at the cost of serious morbidity, anxiety, and expense. The public's uncritical trust in screening programs help keep hidden the significant harm they produce; harms that are further obfuscated by industry-sponsored research.
These numbers are broadly equivalent to those found with most major screening tests. At least 25 dogs died. Many dry pet foods are drenched in fatty flavor enhancers that provide an extremely hospitable environment for the growth of bacteria and fungus. And those bags of food are generally stored at room temperature and go unconsumed for weeks or months. As one vet friend recently observed, it's almost laughable at how quick many vets are to warn clients about the risk of feeding fresh meats that are stored in freezers but don't think twice about selling bags of potentially contaminated dry food with no admonition about the real dangers associated with deadly bacterial overgrowth on those products.
It's difficult for me to not get very discouraged by all the effort and energy that many vets and pet food companies put into scaring off clients and consumers from feeding a raw diet, essentially whitewashing real evidence that dry food can kill sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly and turning a collective blind eye to the long-term dangers of feeding dry cereals to carnivores. The misinformation and strawman arguments used by advocates of feeding dry food is repeated so often on pet food industry websites and from under-informed vets and veterinary technicians and receptionists in vet clinics that many people take it as truth.
But repeating lies over and over doesn't make them true. Soon, myths and a deliberate twisting of the truth comes to dominate the lexicon, and many people who might otherwise consider feeding a healthier diet to their cats are scared off, without the opportunity to weigh the hard facts and evidence first. I had trepidations about feeding raw meat to my cats.
I was terrified of Escherichia coli, Salmonella, you name it. At that time, I had only begun researching the issues related to feeding raw, and I found a very discouraging polarization that was unhelpful in making decisions: They seemed overly defensive and annoyed at anyone even raising the issue. At the other end of the spectrum were the selected individuals in the veterinary community and the pet food industry with their grave warnings about all the risks associated with raw feeding.
Permit me a soapbox moment here: I know so very many cats these days are susceptible to infections, chronic and expensive urinary tract woes, skin allergies, vomiting, diarrhea, IBD, and so on. There are so many animals with very weak or compromised immune systems.
What I've come around to in my own thinking is that we help to create weak cats. We over-vaccinate them, we follow nutritional advice from vets who are not necessarily well informed on nutrition from unbiased sources, we feed steady diets to carnivores of meat-flavored cereal laced with toxic preservatives, and we jump to immediately suppress all symptoms with drugs like prednisolone when they're sick.
But if we can find a way to minimize whatever has the potential to weaken the immune system, then it stands to reason that cats will be in better shape to fight off the bad stuff thrown at them. For my money, nothing beats feeding a cat the diet that nature intended for them to eat - raw meat, bones, and organs.
To be sure, feeding a balanced raw diet is not the answer to everything. However, I think you get an awful lot of bang for your buck feeding this way.
Diet, after all, really is the brick and mortar of health. I came to learn that raw feeders as a group are not, in fact, dismissive of or cavalier about the issues of parasites and bacteria. Much of the defensiveness I encountered early on -- and incorrectly presumed was a result of people simply ignoring a potential problem - was was borne of their frustration with individuals writing off all raw feeding as some wacky, dangerous, and fringe-element fad.
Feeding cats a balanced raw diet is not a fad. Feeding cats meat-flavored cereal is a relatively 'recent' practice in the scheme of things - I like to think it's the fad that's passing! For what it's worth, in all the years I've been doing this, I'm struck that I've yet to hear of anyone having an animal or a human become ill from properly feeding raw from good meat sources to cats. I'm not saying it hasn't happened somewhere.
I do, however, worry about the cats who could benefit SO quickly and easily from being fed a properly prepared raw-meat based diet but who won't ever get the chance because someone who is misinformed dismisses raw feeding out of hand for reasons that are not well thought out. Make your decision on whether to feed raw based on sound science and informed reason.
I've heard that animals can choke on bones. How safe is it to feed bone? Feeding cooked bones is never a good idea. They can splinter and cause serious damage. Raw bones are much softer. I advocate grinding all bones in a meat grinder, since most of us are unable to feed whole prey animals that are the same small size as a cat would hunt, kill, and eat such as mice or birds.
It's an excellent idea to make raw cat food using real bone as your calcium source versus bonemeal or some other isolated calcium source. Finally, remember that bone is more than simply a great calcium source. Fresh, raw bone also contains many important trace minerals that are difficult to duplicate using synthetic supplements. The risk of contracting toxoplasmosis is misunderstood and frequently overblown. I'm not saying that it isn't a serious concern for women who are exposed for the first time during pregnancy, but let's look at the facts: That means 20 percent of us living in the US have already been infected.
Of those who are infected, very few have symptoms because a healthy person's immune system usually keeps the parasite from causing illness. In the United Kingdom approximately 0. If you are planning to become pregnant, you can be tested to learn whether or not you have already been infected with Toxoplasma. If the test is positive it means you have already been infected sometime in your life. According to the CDC, there usually is little need to worry about passing the infection to your baby if you've already been infected.
If the test is negative, you definitely need to take precautions. Here is the important part to remember about cats, their feces, and litter boxes: The problem comes from the oocyst, which is shed in the cat feces.
Even more important - and often overlooked - is the fact that oocysts require hours to sporulate, to grow into a form which is dangerous to people.
This means if you clean your litter box at least twice a day, you have dramatically reduced the danger of infection from cat feces. Bear in mind that are still other sources of toxoplasmosis - gardening, unsanitary handling of meat, rarely blood transfusions, insects, and earthworms.
Do the math here: You were never previously infected with toxoplasmosis AND your cat would have had to have been exposed to her very first infection and shed the oocysts in her feces AND that shedding of oocysts would have had to occur within a specific ten to 14 day time frame AND you would have had to not clean the litter box for hours AND you would have had to ingest some of the infected feces.
See why I say that the risk of toxoplasmosis is frequently misunderstood and overblown? Believe me, I don't take the dangers of this condition lightly. It can be a very serious concern for certain people. But admonitions from some medical doctors to "get rid of your cat" without explaining the nature of the risk and the steps that can be taken to avoid or mitigate it do not tell the whole story.
Given the above, paying attention to hygiene and getting a handle on your vulnerability to toxoplasmosis makes good sense. If you're in a high-risk population, get yourself tested to determine whether you've already been exposed. Wash your hands and clean under your fingernails thoroughly after handling raw meat. Wear rubber gloves when gardening and when cleaning the litter box.
And clean the litter box at least twice a day. I want to make the diet using different ingredients - can you help me? I have enormous faith in the balance of this diet and it has served me well for quite a few years.
If I didn't already think the recipe was about as perfect as I could manage, I wouldn't use it. I do tinker myself sometimes with ingredients--adding more psyllium and water during "hairball season," for example--but as much as I would like to help everyone who has an idea to start using, say, dried eggshells as a calcium source instead of bonemeal in the "without bone" recipe, I simply don't have the time to do it. It takes time to properly calculate what's needed to correct calcium-to- phosphorus ratio if someone wants to use another calcium source, and I am not convinced that using calcium sources other than what I've suggested is a good idea in the first place.
The tinkering I do is really along the margins of the diet and certainly there may be times when you'll need to do the same. My only advice is to be certain that whatever adjustments you might make do not violate the key principles that you simply MUST get right - like making sure the calcium amounts are correct.
If your cat prefers her meals more "soupy," than of course you can add a bit more water to the mix. If you're having a problem with hairballs, I think it's fine to add some extra psyllium and water. If your cat is under great stress, upping the amount of B-complex is probably a fine idea. You shouldn't mess with things that put your cat at risk for toxicity, such as by using too much of non-water soluble vitamins like A, D, or E.
This is especially true if you're using synthetic vitamins. Please don't ask me to perform a wholesale re-engineering of this diet to suit each person's unique needs or preferences. But beyond that, I simply cannot confidently perform a wholesale re-engineering of this diet to suit each person's unique needs. That said, I do try hard to help as many people as I can who send me questions via e-mail, because I know how much it meant to me to have guidance when I first tentatively dipped my toes in this raw food venture.
But please don't ask me to completely reconstruct the diet and perform all the calculations for you to come up with a revised and correctly balanced recipe. I have a busy job and home life, and while keeping up with this website is a labor of love and I will do my very best to answer the questions you have on feeding this diet, I simply cannot reinvent the wheel. I also need some time to make cat food. I advise anyone considering a raw diet to do as much of their own reading as possible on the issue, focusing heavily on information from unbiased sources.
You can start with having a look at the resources page. I suggest always asking yourself if a given raw diet recipe is truly species-appropriate or might just be an "adapted dog diet" recipe. I don't have the corner on the only way of doing this right. This site simply reflects what I've come to believe is the most sound way I know of to safely prepare a truly balanced and healthy diet for cats.
If I come on information that, after careful reading, persuades me beyond 'reasonable doubt' that the diet needs changing or adjustment, I'll change it. I try very hard to keep up with the latest work on feline nutrition from the veterinary journals and am in regular contact with people who have been feeding raw successfully for years.
I am a lay person. I'm not a professionally-trained nutritionist and certainly not a veterinarian. Ideally, you should work closely with your vet on any changes you want to make to your cat's diet. Unfortunately, not nearly enough vets are well-versed in feline nutrition to be of very much help, and many default to either reflexively dismissing raw diets or offering to sell you a bag of some prescription food.
That said, if you find a vet that really knows small animal nutrition-- and is well-versed in cat nutrition? Vegetarianism as a nutritional choice for humans is magnificent. Cats have no choice. We bring obligate carnivores into our lives and feeding them other animals is a necessity and a responsibility.
A cat cannot survive long without eating other animals. The protein in a vegetable does not supply what a cat needs to live. There is plenty of room for debate on how to best feed a cat.
But there is no debating that cats are obligate carnivores. Cats rely on nutrients in animal tissues to meet their specific nutritional requirements. Plant tissue doesn't cut it. It never CAN for carnivores. I understand that it can be difficult to handle raw meat. Believe me, the first time I got an order of whole rabbits delivered to my door for making cat food I nearly wept and it was everything I had to get through chopping and grinding. But it got easier because I kept in mind that my carnivore friends would have the best shot at longer, healthier lives if I did it.
And when I focused on what goes into the manufacturing of many commercially-prepared cans or bags of cat food, I realized that the raw material that went into them was infinitely more gross.
Slaughterhouse waste, meat unfit for human consumption, toxic chemicals, questionable preservatives, animal entrails fermented into sprayable liquid mixtures with acid, and on and on. It didn't take long to face the fact that what I was assembling in my kitchen for my carnivores was certainly less offensive than almost anything I could scoop out of a bag or a can.
As Anne Martin discovered when she conducted her long, detailed, and thorough investigation into the pet food industry, "companion animals from clinics, pounds, and shelters can and are being rendered and used as sources of protein in pet food.
Dead-stock removal operations play a major role in the pet food industry. Dead animals, road kill that cannot be buried at roadside, and in some cases, zoo animals, are picked up by these dead stock operations. When an animal dies in the field or is killed due to illness or disability, the dead stock operators pick them up and truck them to the receiving plant. There the dead animal is salvaged for meat or, depending on the state of decomposition, delivered to a rendering plant.
At the receiving plants, the animals of value are skinned and viscera removed. Hides of cattle and calves are sold for tanning. The usable meat is removed from the carcass, and covered in charcoal to prevent it from being used for human consumption. Then the meat is frozen, and sold as animal food, which includes pet food.
Remember, most of the commercial pet food industry is an extension of the food waste industry. These include taurine, arachidonic acid, vitamin A, and vitamin B Doesn't dry food help clean a cat's teeth? The short answers are - no, and no. Quite the opposite in fact. Dry food, with its high-carbohydrate load mixes with saliva in the mouth to form a yucky, sticky paste that adheres to the gums and teeth much more than wet food.
And that opens the door to expensive dental cleanings, downstream health issues, and stress and pain for your cat. In my experience, some cats seem to have naturally healthy teeth that will tolerate a lousy diet.
Other cats seem to show signs of dental distress and problems very early on in life regardless of their diet. So it's kind of a crap shoot. She notes, " If anything, tartar and gum disease seemed to be more attributable to genetics or concurrent disease such as feline leukemia or feline AIDS than to any particular diet.
Hofve concludes that dry food does not clean the teeth. Carnivores have long canine teeth those are the big pointy ones you see at the corner of a cat's mouth to grab and kill prey. To pull the meat off of bones, they use their incisors. Finally, the carnassial teeth - the upper premolar and lower molars - are built to tear and cut flesh. You're living with a little animal-killing machine. Those teeth aren't made for cereal. Anyway, you know how when we humans chew there's a back-and-forth and side-to-side action happening with the teeth?
The movement that makes it possible for you to jut your lower row of teeth out in front of your upper row of teeth? Or that lets you move the lower jaw left and right? Not so with carnivores. For them, the lower jaw cannot move forward and has very limited side-to-side motion. The jaw on a cat is a simple hinge joint that lies on the same plane of the teeth; the hinge pivots.
It's a lot like your knee joint. As the jaw moves, the temporarilis muscle triggers the movement of the jaw. For herbivores, conversely, the chewing action involving forward and backward and side-to-side movement of the lower jaw pushes food back and forth into the grinding teeth - with the help from tongue and cheek muscles.
This is a brilliant design that lets herbivores mechanically break down the cell walls of plants. Meanwhile, a carbohydrate-digesting enzyme - sailvary amylase kicks into action and breaks down starchy carbohydrates. Cats don't produce salivary amylase. That fact alone, by the way, is huge. This is yet another reason not to feed carbohydrates or plant matter to cats. The un-broken-down carbohydrates, it is posited by some, can form a sticky paste that creates plaque and tartar in the mouth.
It's the specific geeky details like these that explain why feeding dry kibble based for dental health makes very little sense. There's probably a little abrasive action on the inside of teeth when kitty closes the top row down on the bottom row with a large piece of kibble. But it's the outer teeth where plaque and tartar form - generally, a cat's tongue will help remove plaque from the inner surfaces of the teeth.
Mills, MD to thank for his work explaining "eating anatomy" in a way that made sense to me. It depends on what you and your cat are willing to do. Please see my web page on periodontal disease , for starters. Having your cat's teeth and gums examined regularly and, if needed, scheduling dental cleanings under anesthetic! While it's preferable to never have to subject your cat to the stress and anesthetic of dental cleanings, sometimes it's the very wisest thing to do.
Do check out Dr. Andrea Tasi's extraordinarily helpful article on what questions to ask your veterinarian before scheduling dental work on your cat. Read it, study it, print it, and take it with you the next time you're talking to your vet about dental work for your cat. Bear in mind, too, that a cat's teeth can look just fine and still hide serious problems. There's a compelling argument in favor of having a cat's teeth and gums thoroughly checked at least once a year under anesthetic to make sure there aren't issues lurking under the gum-line that aren't visible to the naked eye.
That said, I personally have a tough time justifying putting a cat through the risks of anesthesia when there's no obvious reason to take the risk. It's a judgment call. Brushing your cat's teeth. I know more than a few people who manage this with more ease than you'd think is possible.
The trick is to proceed slowly and to, early on, link tooth brushing with a pleasurable activity. You don't want to make this a battle, after all. Your cat won't like it and you'll give up. I began brushing my cats' teeth finally! I pretty much followed the guidelines and tricks on that Cornell University video, though I find that tooth-brushing is more hassle-free around here if I catch the critters when they're asleep.
They're two fairly mellow guys and seem to take to it well. Remember - you do NOT have to brush the inside of the teeth, only the outside -- and really all it takes is some swift, repeated swipes of the upper and lower rows of teeth. We use seafood-flavored cat toothpaste here and it seems to be a hit. Feeding regular meals of nothing but large chunks of muscle meat. Granted, many cats absolutely refuse to eat chunks - I had the darndest time with two of my cats when it came to eating chunks.
If you're persistent and your cat is hungry, your cat may surprise you. Wilson sure surprised us on this front. The shearing and tearing action of a carnivore's teeth against raw meat is fantastic exercise for the jaw and goes a long way to creating the pre-conditions for great oral health. Wilson generously agreed to demonstrate in the video below - just know that this is two and a half minutes long.
Hey, this ain't kibble munching. This is what it takes for a carnivore to work through just one big ol' hunk of chicken thigh. Hey, this raw feeding seems like it might be a great idea for dogs.
Can I feed them this food? But keep in mind that dogs have considerably more flexibility in their digestive system than cats, so there is quite a bit more wiggle room in preparing a dog's raw diet. If I had a dog, you can absolutely sure that I'd feed raw. Here's a link to a great tutorial on the basics of raw feeding for our canine friends. And so we're perfectly clear on this: We here at catnutrition.
You've convinced me that raw feeding is a good idea, but I just don't have the time or supplies to do it.
Is there a next best option? Honestly, making your own cat food is NOT as time-consuming as you might think. I work a full-time job and have a very busy life, and have managed it for over a dozen years.
But I also realize that not everyone is going to be able or willing to put in the time required. Here are some next-best options to consider: Look into the TC Feline raw cat food premix product.
Start off by buying TC Feline product - a premix made by a fabulous company founded by a woman who is arguably one of the most important pioneers in modern raw feeding for cats, Natascha Wille. They make a dry ingredient premix for making raw food, thus saving you the time of measuring out individual ingredients.
You add meat, organs, and water to their product and you have some VERY good raw cat food in very little time.
The only thing I really don't like about this method is that because the product already contains calcium, you cannot use real bone, which is superior to any isolated calcium source. TC Feline - the successor to Feline Future - is an utterly wonderful company that, frankly, has done more to make raw feeding accessible to cat caregivers than any other company. It's done so in a way that no other has done with years of painstaking, yet humane, research into every single ingredient that belongs and does NOT belong in the diet of an obligate carnivore.
The company has been around since They were and remain real trailblazers in the field of responsible feline nutrition. Perhaps once you start using their product, you'll be inspired to make the food entirely yourself by mixing your own ingredients and using real bone. Even if your cat never gets real bone, she'll still be getting a diet that is far, far superior to anything else you can get out of a can or a bag Consider buying a quality pre-made raw diet.
This can cost you more money much, much more money than doing it yourself, although there are ways to bring the cost down if you're creative. You have to be careful buying pre-made raw diets, as far too many of the ones I see for sale have ingredients in them like vegetables, herbs, and even grains. I shake my head in disbelief, frankly, at some of the pre-made raw diets that are sold that contain ingredients such as bok choy, acorn squash, turnips, celery, garlic, apples, alfalfa seeds, walnut meal, beans, papaya, cranberries, and on and on.
Remember--carnivores cannot efficiently process plant matter into beneficial nutrition. They lack the salivary amylase and enzymatic pathways to do that. So if you're going to buy a pre-made raw food, you're going to have to look carefully at the ingredient list. I strongly urge you to steer clear of any diet that contains vegetables or grains. And to make sure that any pre-ground product is contains sufficient taurine. Finally, bear in mind that if you're letting someone else do the grinding, you are putting faith in someone else's hygiene practices.
It's a good idea to find out what you can about the cleanliness of their facilities and grinder. This isn't always easy. Feed a truly quality canned or freeze-dried diet you provide the hydration that is free of grains and, if possible, vegetables. Wouldn't it be easier and better to just feed whole prey? It depends on your cat. And it depends on you.
The whole prey model is another method of feeding raw to cats. As I've said, my way of preparing and feeding a raw diet is not the only way. There is certainly more than one way to construct a balanced diet. You can learn more about feeding whole prey -- which involves no grinding and instead serving a variety of whole, raw carcasses -- on several Yahoo egroups, including this one.
I haven't been on egroups for awhile now--this website and its emails keeps me more than busy--but there are plenty of smart and supportive people out there with experience that I can't offer, and who have suggestions on how to switch even the most stubborn cats to a prey model diet. If this sounds like it's for you, then please do check out the group and learn more. It's a terrific way to improve your cat's chances of having good oral health and is truly closer to what mother nature intended.
If you are careful to source your meats from animals that are themselves fed properly and unfortunately, many are not , then good ol' mother nature takes care of providing a perfect package of nutrition for your cat and you don't need to fuss with grinding or supplementing. Unfortunately, the issue for many people, like me, is that since I did not start my cats out from kittenhood on raw, their willingness to devour whole prey is not very strong.
Heck, I struggled with getting my first raw eaters, Duke and Nettie, to eat the chunks of raw meat that I cut up by hand for years. I think we've created generations of feline hothouse orchids who have grown so accustomed to being served meals of soft food--and who, sadly either because of bad genetic luck or years of eating low-grade diets end up with terrible dental woes--that they are being pushed away from being the carnivores they are.
And mother nature always rebels when we don't respect the nature of beings. I ran across a very sad fact. Pandas are actually carnivores. So why are they eating all that bamboo in the zoo?
