Codex Alimentarius: changing the foods you can eat

I just saw a web presentation about the upcoming Codex Alimentarius, international legislation that will legally constrain the distribution of certain important health information and free access to non-patentable natural medicines.

Food supplements and organic food will be legally limited and might even be forbidden. There are a lot of myths about the Codex Alimentarius on the internet, but this presentation gives a more level headed, scientific approach as the lecture is hosted by the Dutch Delf University of Technology.

Basically the Codex will limit which nutrients can be sold as food supplements and is stretching the limits of what can be called organic food. Also it is presented that there are studies that show that organic farming yields just as good or better harvests and more nutritional foods than conventional farming and that these studies are ignored.

Check out the presentation here.

Nicotine creates cancer causing substance

Cigarrest to Stop Smoking in 7 Days!
Nicotine is not only addictive, but also dangerous for your health. American researchers have discovered that nicotine creates carcinogenic substances.

This is shown by research done in collaboration with the University of California.

When smoking a cigarette nicotine is released in the form of vapor. This vapor attaches itself to surfaces of furniture, carpets, clothing and human skin and can stay there for months.

When the nicotine residue reacts with a substance called hydrogen nitrite, which is often present in buildings, carcinogenic substances are formed.

Fake electronic cigarettes and extinguished cigarettes are also dangerous because of this. Fake cigarettes were thought of as harmless because they only spread nicotine and not the toxic tar.

Exposure to the carcinogenic substances happens primarily by breathing it in or through skin contact with clothes or carpets that are covered with nicotine.

The researches suspects that ‘third hand’ smoke is the most dangerous for little children.

Smoking outside doesn’t make much difference. The nicotine attaches itself to clothes and skin and can be brought inside this way.

Vitamin D protects against colon cancer

Nature's Way Dry Vitamin D - 400 IU 100 capsVitamin D reduces the risk of developing colon cancer. People who have high concentrations of vitamin D in their blood have a 40 percent less chance of getting the disease.

This is the result of a large European study in which the University of Utrecht participated. The results were published in the scientific journal British Medical Journal.

The body produces vitamin D when skin is exposed to sun light, but also foods like fatty fish provide the body with vitamin D. The research did not show however that extra vitamin D in food or supplements can prevent cancer, says a researcher.
