- This is an excellent report by Dr. Blaylock.
- Dr. Blaylock is the author of: 'Excitotoxins: The Taste
That Kills', 'Health & Nutrition Secrets To Save Your Life' and 'Cancer
Strategies' all of which are shown on his site at
- An excitotoxin is a product that literally stimulates
the neurons of the brain *to death causing permanent brain damage.* The
two we think the most of are the aspartic acid in aspartame and MSG.
- In Health & Nutrition Secrets, page 125, Dr. Blaylock
says: "So, in the case of diet drinks in aluminum cans, the very
toxic brain aluminum fluoride compound co-exists with multiple toxins found
in aspartame, thus creating the most powerful government-approved toxic
soup imaginable. With the strong association between aluminum, excitotoxins,
aluminum fluoride complexes and Alzheimer's disease, it would be completely
irresponsible to encourage people to consume this toxic mixture. Yet,
this is done literally billions of times every year in advertising."
- In the Gulf, these diet drinks sat on pallets as long
as 8 weeks at a time, piled high, in 120 degree temperatures.
- In the protest of the National Soft Drink Association
at http://www.dorway.com, you will read that aspartame breaks down at 86
degrees. And it breaks down into a witches' brew of toxins including formaldehyde
and diketopiperazine, a brain tumor agent that triggered brain tumors in
- Aspartame destroys the immune system and central nervous
system. It not only interacts with drugs because of damage to the mitochondria
or life of the cell according to Dr. James Bowen, but as a chemical hypersensitization
agent it interacts with vaccines and other toxins. In a lecture on www.dorway.com,
Dr. Blaylock also says the reactions to aspartame are not allergic but
- just like consuming arsenic and cyanide. Aspartame is
an adjuvant and forms antigenic tissue, triggering immunologic attack.
This is how it triggers lupus. The immune system turns against the victim's
- In this article Dr. Blaylock brings out that it is accepted
by most authorities that vaccines should not be given to individuals with
impaired immunity for fear of triggering immune attacks on the central
nervous system, such as encephalitis, nerve injuries (peripheral neuropathy,
multiple sclerosis and allergic encephalomyelitis.
- So, it's really a given with such a toxic soup the troops
were exposed to, we truly are looking at diet drink catastrophe. This
article makes it easy to understand Gulf War illness. A new study connects
brain cancer in Gulf War vets to sarin, but researchers may not have known
the aspartame laced pop they were drinking breaks down to a brain tumor
agent. A USA Today article of July 26 states sarin has never been shown
to cause cancer.
- With all this information in mind, here is Dr. Blaylock's
- By Russell L. Blaylock
- MD Neurosurgeon
- Most have at least heard about the controversy surrounding
possible harmful effects of some of the vaccines. What is less well known
is that even greater dangers exist than are being conveyed to the general
public. Much of this information is buried in highly technical scientific
journals beyond the reach and understanding of the average person.
- Of special concern is the relationship between vaccine
policy, autism and the Gulf War Syndrome.
- I shall use the Gulf War Syndrome as an example of a
vaccine policy gone berserk, while including discussions of other dangers
- Most scientific observers have attributed the dramatic
fall in infectious disease to the appearance of widespread vaccination,
despite recent evidence that some of that credit is unjustified. For example,
we know that improved public health measures and nutrition played a major
role in the sudden decline in most of the infectious diseases plaguing
mankind. Likewise, there is growing evidence that vaccinations are not
providing the protection that they are touted to provide. For example,
all cases of polio occurring after the introduction of the polio vaccine
shave been traced to the vaccine itself. Similar findings have been shown
- Convinced that the victory over the major childhood infectious
diseases was secondary to vaccine programs, public health officials began
to add more diseases to the list, including haemophilus influenza type
b, hepatitis B, measles, mumps and now even chickenpox. Present vaccination
programs are exposing children to as many as 22 inoculations before attending
school. More are being proposed. Driving much of this are the profits
being made by vaccine manufacturers and a revolving door between medical
university professors with financial interest in these companies and public
health officials with the same interest.
- Unfortunately, the science supporting the safety of unlimited
vaccination of small children and adults does not exist. Most follow-up
studies of vaccinated children last no more than two weeks after the vaccine
is given, and many of the effects of vaccination on brain development are
delayed much longer. In addition, most of these studies look only for
blatantly obvious injuries and not subtle changes that can lead to serious
- There are a growing number of scientific studies that
are demonstrating serious dangers in our present vaccine policy, including
altered brain development, seizures and a loss of brain cell connections
called synapses. These studies all point to over-vaccination as a real
and present danger to our children, and in certain instances, to adults.
Unfortunately, most pediatricians and family practitioners are completely
unaware of these dangers. Most depend on their specialty societies, such
as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family
Practice for answers concerning safety issues. Rarely do these physicians
research these important topics themselves. For too often, those serving
on vaccine boards within these specialty societies have a vested interest
in the financial success of the companies involved, either as investments
in stock or direct payments by the companies.
- Much controversy and confusing data surrounds the cause
of the Gulf War Syndrome (GWS), and despite numerous studies, little solid
information as to the cause of the syndrome has appeared. Throughout the
entire period since the first Gulf war the Pentagon has been reluctant
to admit to a connection between this devastating syndrome (that has left
tends of thousands of soldiers and their families chronically ill and many
of these children deformed) and military policies on vaccination. Our
soldiers were given approximately 17 vaccinations over a short period,
despite manufacturer's warnings that many of the vaccines, were to be spaced
over a year period. Several hypotheses have been proposed as to the cause
of this syndrome, including neurotoxic and immunotoxic effects of pesticides,
aspartame degradation products, chemical warfare agents released, toxins
from spent uranium shells, combat stress and vaccines.
- HOW SCIENTISTS THINK
- It is characteristic of modern science to always look
for one central cause of a problem rather than explore additive effects
or even synergic toxicity of many agents.
- Yet the science of toxin synergy is growing and finding
some surprising effects caused by combing two or more weak toxins. For
example, it is known that when two weakly toxic pesticides are used alone,
neither cause Parkinson's syndrome in experimental animals, but when combined,
they can cause full-blown Parkinsonism very rapidly. The same is true
with fluoride. We know that both fluoride and aluminum individually are
brain toxins, but when combined, as we see in fluoridated water, the mix
constitutes an extremely powerful brain toxin, destroying numerous neurons
in the part of the brain associated with memory and emotional functions.
- It is rare that the government agencies test potentially
toxic chemicals or even food additives together; instead, they are tested
alone. As in the examples above, we are seeing more instances of combinations
of chemicals causing devastating injury yet when used alone are either
mildly toxic or even non-toxic. Few laymen realize that vaccines contain
many chemical additives in addition to the infectious organism being targeted.
These include aluminum, mercury, hydrolyzed proteins, monosodium glutamate,
oils and many complex molecules known as immune adjuvants. Several of
these (aluminum, mercury, hydrolyzed protein and MSG) are known to be directly
toxic to the brain.
- TOO MANY VACCINES OVER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME
- A considerable amount of research indicates that the
Gulf War Syndrome, as well as autism, is triggered by combing too many
vaccines over too short a period. This is compounded by numerous other
toxic events, especially in the Gulf War veteran. This includes exposure
to pesticides, aspartame breakdown products, combat stress, high intake
of food-based excitotoxins, possible exposure to released nerve agents,
as well as exposure to contaminated vaccines. For example, recent studies
by Dr. Garth Nicolson, head of The Institute of Molecular Medicine, have
disclosed a high incidence of contamination of the anthrax vaccine with
mycoplasma organisms. In addition, he has shown a strong correlation between
ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and this mycoplasmal infection. Recently, Pentagon
officials reluctantly admitted to a 200% increased incidence of ALS in
Gulf War veterans.
- Many of the toxic exposures named in connection with
the GWS have a common effect on the immune system. In most instances,
we see impaired cellular immunity (NK cells, T-lymphocytes, etc.) It is
accepted by most authorities that vaccines should not be given to individuals
with impaired immunity for fear of triggering immune attacks on the central
nervous system, such a encephalitis, nerve injuries (peripheral neuropathy),
multiple sclerosis, and allergic encephalomyelitis. All of these are considered
autoimmune disorders, during which the immune system attacks specific components
of the brain and spinal cord by mistake. Recent studies have disclosed
a completely new mechanism of injury, referred to as bystander injury.
- BYSTANDER INJURY: A GRENADE IN A SHOPPING MALL
- In the case of bystander injury, rather than the immune
system directly attacking specific parts of the nervous system (molecular
mimicry), that is mistaking a part of the nerve cell or neuron for a viral
or mycoplasmal invader, the immune system is merely doing its job but in
the process killing a lot of innocent bystanders, that is surround normal
brain cells. It's sort of like throwing a grenade in a shopping mall that
not only kills the enemy, but also kills anyone close by. This occurs
because immune cells kill invaders by flooding them with a storm of free
radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive particles that destroy everything
they encounter, friend or foe. It is the immune cells that generate these
free radicals in large numbers. Normally, an immune attack on viruses
and other organisms occurs rapidly and is quickly terminated. This is
why strong immunity is essential-it minimizes bystander injury. A weakened
immune system initiates a smoldering attack that is prolonged; leaving
surrounding normal cells and tissue soaked in destructive free radicals,
but does not kill the invader.
- These destructive free radicals initially accumulate
locally, that is, at the site of the invasion of the organisms whereas,
with prolonged immune activation, these free radicals can diffuse far out
into the surrounding tissues and with time, can flood the entire body.
For instance, in the case of a chronic illness, such as lupus, we see
high levels of free radicals throughout the body. This is the cause of
the widespread symptoms of the disease. The same is true for diabetes,
chronic heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis.
- Vaccinations, if too numerous and spaced too close together
act like a chronic illness, flooding the entire body with free radicals.
Even so, the highest concentration of these radicals is in the vicinity
of the immune cells.
- Bystander injury can also occur with autoimmune disorders,
since the immune attack is so widespread, persistent and intense.
- THE PROBLEM WITH VACCINES
- When producing vaccines, scientists combine the intended
organism, either killed or live, with chemicals that stimulate an immune
reaction. These chemicals are called adjuvants. Squalene, one of the
common culprits found in GWS veterans, is an immune adjuvant. Usually they
add many such adjuvants together. When these adjuvants are injected into
the tissues they remain for a long time, continuously stimulating the immune
system. If your immune system is normal and healthy, complications are
- Yet, should you have a defective immune system, or even
part of the immune system is defective, your risk of complications goes
up considerably. This is because the immune system is made of many components
that must act in a specific concerted manner to kill the invader while
minimizing the damage to surrounding normal tissues.
- One of the more common reasons for immune dysfunction
is nutritional deficiency, even for single nutrients. For example, we
know that vitamin E (natural E), selenium, zinc, vitamins C and flavonoids
(from fruits and vegetables) are critical for normal immune function.
These are common deficiencies, especially after middle age. Likewise,
some people may have only a deficiency in selenium, which would also impair
a cellular immunity. It is now known that even individual nutritional
deficiencies can have devastating effects on the immune system. Likewise,
certain nutrients in excess can significantly interfere with immune function
as well, such as omega-6 fats, MSG, aspartame and sugar. Of particular
concern are the omega-6 oils, which are metabolized in the body to produce
a powerful immune suppressing substance (PGE2). Corn, safflower, sunflower,
peanut and soybean oils are all omega-6 oils. The MREs (meals ready to
eat) contain numerous immune suppressing nutrients.
- When nutrition-based immune malfunction is combined with
the immune toxicity of pesticides, herbicides, chemical warfare agents
and stress even greater immune dysfunction occurs.
- Numerous experimental studies have shown that when you
over stimulate the immune system with immune adjuvants, as would occur
when giving numerous vaccines, close together, enormous numbers of free
radicals are generated, and because the immune activation takes place over
such a long period of time, these free radicals begin to damage normal
cells surrounding the sites of attack as well as throughout the body.
In other words, it's like producing a chronic illness in a person.
- The type of adjuvant also matters significantly. Oil
based adjuvants, such as squalene and squalane are known to produce intense,
unrelenting immune reactions that can last a lifetime. Recent studies have
shown that all of the Gulf War veterans tested have had antibodies to squaelene,
even those not serving in Iraq. The source of this squalene adjuvant has
been determined to be from a secret, investigational vaccine for anthrax.
One of the code names for this adjuvant is MF59.
- Aluminum (as alum), also used as an adjuvant not only
produces prolonged immune activation, but also travels along nerve tracks
into the spinal cord and brain steam. Aluminum is known to produce significant
destruction of brain cell connections and development of the same pathological
features as Alzheimer's disease. When combined to fluoride, as occurs
in vaccines as well as fluoridated drinking water, aluminum-fluoride complex
causes a significant loss of brain cells in the hippocampus of the brain,
the site of recent memory generation.
- THE BRAIN'S SPECIAL IMMUNE SYSTEM
- In the case of multiple vaccinations over a short period,
something even worse happens - the adjuvants activate the nervous system's
special immune cells called the microglia. Microglia cells are dispersed
throughout the nervous system. Normally, they lay dormant, that is, asleep.
When activated they can migrate throughout the brain, secreting very powerful
toxins, free radical and immune related chemicals (cytokines).
- These cells are very easy to activate. We know from
many experiments that stimulating the body's immune system, as with vaccination,
also activates the brain's immune system.
- Under normal circumstances these microglia are activated
for only short periods and then quickly shut their self off. With over-vaccination,
these cells can remain active for very long periods creating considerable
bystander damage. This is because they secrete toxic products that diffuse
throughout the nervous system killing neurons, destroying synaptic connections
and damaging the coverings of nerve fibers. There is growing evidence
that prolonged microglial activation is the mechanisms of damage in numerous
neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's
disease, autism and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
- It is interesting to note that Dr. Garth Nicolson, as
well as others, have had significant success in treating the GWS with the
prolonged use of antibiotics. A growing number of recent studies have
shown that the very antibiotics being used shut down the microglial cells.
It may be that the greater part of the beneficial effects of these antibiotics
may be stopping the bystander damage by shutting off this type of cell,
rather than by actually killing microorganisms. With residual or persistent
infections, both effects are needed.
- According to recent studies, it may not even be necessary
that live organisms be present to cause this bystander damage. First,
we know that prolonged immune stimulation by use of immune adjuvants alone
can produce severe bystander damage in the nervous system. Likewise, even
the persistence of viral components, that is viral debris, can trigger
prolonged immune reactions leading to bystander damage. We see this in
association with the dementia of HIV infection. One of the great puzzles
of AIDS was how it could result in dementia when the brain's neurons were
not infected. We now know that a protein particle is shed within the microglia
and that this triggers chronic activation of the microglia cell.
- One class of toxins released by these microglial cells
includes excitotoxins. These powerful chemicals can excite brain cells
to death and are thought to play a role in all forms of neurodegenerative
diseases, brain trauma, strokes and meningitis. Common forms of excitotoxins
include glutamate (as in monosodium glutamate-MSG), aspartate (as used
in aspartame) and quinolinic acid (a metabolic product of serotonin breakdown).
- When chronically activated, microglial cells pour out
these excitotoxins in large amounts, destroying neurons, synapses and dendrites,
that is, the connections between brain cells.
- When these same excitotoxins are consumed in foods and
drinks, even more damage is done. There is ample evidence that these food-based
excitotoxins easily enter the brain. Most processed foods contain one
or more excitotoxins, many in disguised forms.
- We know that several things can activate microglia, including
pesticides, MSG, viruses, mycoplasma, bacteria, stress, aluminum, mercury
and immune adjuvants. These are all things the Gulf War veterans were
exposed to both in theater as well as out. One of the enigmas has been
the high incidence of similar symptoms experienced by family members of
Gulf War veterans. Viral and mycoplasmal contaminants of these vaccines
could spread to family members and initiate similar microglial activation.
This is especially so with highly mutated viruses, which would be expected
in the Gulf War veteran as discussed below.
- Another possibility is that the immune dysfunction produced
by the adjuvants would allow secondary infections to develop, such as mycoplasma
and various viral pathogens.
- HUMAN GENERATORS OF DEADLY VIRUSES
- Several recent studies, which have not been shared with
the public, have disclosed a rather frightening process. It has been found
that when viruses are exposed to high free radical concentrations, even
within a person, the viruses mutate, becoming much more virulent (deadly).
Giving vaccines with live-attenuated viruses opens up a completely new
danger that is not being discussed. To make a live virus, say for measles
virus vaccines, scientists pass the virus through several cultures to reduce
the disease causing ability of the virus, that is, its virulence. Scientists
refer to this weakened virus as an attenuated virus. What we are not told
is that often this virus remains in the body for a lifetime. In fact,
a recent study found that live measles viruses were found in 20% of the
brains of autopsied adults and in 45% of other organs. In other words,
the virus has been hiding in their bodies for a lifetime.
- Interestingly, these viruses were found to be highly
mutated. The bottom line is that by giving live viruses, either intentionally
or as a contaminant of vaccines, you expose that person to a very high
risk of viral persistence, especially if they have an impaired immune system.
Furthermore, that virus can mutate, becoming much more likely to produce
a serious disease, even one not normally associated with that particular
virus, such as colitis, encephalitis or a chronic degenerative brain disorder.
The danger is not only to the person initially vaccinated, but to also
those who come in contact with him or her. That is, they are acting as
generators of deadly mutated viruses. It should be noted that the measles
virus itself suppresses the immune system. Other viruses are known to
have a similar effect.
- Chronic illness is characterized by the presence of large
numbers of free radicals throughout the body, as we have seen. These free
radicals not only damage cells, but also cause any virus living in that
person's body to mutate. Likewise, as we have seen, these new mutated
viruses are much more likely to cause serious disease. In essence, people
with chronic illnesses, because they generate a lot of free radicals, act
as living viral mutation incubators. Poor nutrition greatly magnifies
this process as well because such people generate significantly more free
radicals. That was the great surprise of this study.
- The recent panic over the A/Fujian strain of influenza
is a case in point. People, especially mothers of small children, are
rushing to have their loved ones vaccinated with the flu vaccines. Yet,
doing so exposes them to serious dangers. For example, those receiving
the killed older flu vaccine are receiving a significant dose of mercury
- This dose is even more toxic to small children because
of their smaller body size.
- Mercury has been shown to greatly magnify bystander injury
in the brain. In the case of small children and babies, the immune reaction
caused directly by the mercury is added to that of the other childhood
vaccines, further aggravating bystander damage in their brain. Because
the child's brain continues to develop and grow so rapidly up until the
age of two years, the danger of bystander damage is much greater than in
- Due to the shortage of conventional vaccines, a nasal
form of the vaccine has been offered. Those at greatest risk from the
nasal vaccine are people with immune deficiencies - diabetics, those with
autoimmune diseases, the elderly and the very young. This means they are
more likely to suffer from viral persistence and resulting prolonged bystander
injury as well as the generation of mutated viruses. The influenza virus
has been suspect in triggering atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
and in neurological degeneration such as Parkinson's disease. Likewise,
people with chronic illnesses, as we have seen, generate large numbers
of free radicals all the time, increasing the likelihood that the virus
will mutate to a more virulent strain. These are the high-risk groups
the Public Health physicians and medical societies are encouraging to take
- Second, many of these vaccines, including the anthrax
and flu vaccines, contain thimerosal. Thimerosal is a preservative that
is composed of 50% mercury. Mercury is a very unique poison, in that it
incapacitates numerous enzymes in the cell including those used to neutralize
free radicals. In addition, mercury, among all the metals tested, was
the only one shown to block the removal of excess glutamate from the nervous
system. This removal system is critical to nervous system health. By
paralyzing the glutamate removal system, mercury triggers chronic excitotoxicity
- that is chronic destruction of the nervous system.
- In addition, mercury tends to accumulate in the microglial
cell, causing it to become chronically active. This in turn results in
the excretion of the two powerful excitotoxins from the microglial cell
I mentioned before, called quinolinic acid and glutamate. It is the secretion
of these two excitotoxins that causes the dementia associated with the
HIV virus. In fact, the HIV virus coat proteins increase quinolinic acid
concentrations in the spinal fluid of demented AIDS patients some 300 fold.
Other persistent viruses, viral proteins and immune adjuvants have been
shown to do the same thing, even in children.
- Another recent study, conducted by the US Department
of Agriculture, found that exposing mice to mercury prior to infection
with the coxsackievirus B3, a virus that destroys the heart muscle, greatly
increased the mortality, number of pathological injuries seen in the heart
muscle and the number of viruses in the heart's muscle (viral titer) as
compared to animals exposed to the virus alone.
- Cosackievirus B3 induced cardiomyopathy and heart failure
is the number one disease leading to heart transplants in this country.
This study was important in that it demonstrated that exposure to mercury
greatly increased the lethality of this virus and promoted the replication
of the virus. Other studies have confirmed this finding using different
- WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
- In essence, people should be cautious when considering
vaccination for themselves and their families. Many parents are choosing
to home school their children so that they can avoid the vaccination program.
Families that choose to home school will not only benefit by avoiding
the vaccines for their children, they will also be better able to build
their children's natural immunity by providing a good nutritional program
comprised of whole foods and some supplements. As we have seen, vaccine
complications increase dramatically when given close together, especially
as combined vaccines such as the DPaT and MMR and the other 17 vaccines
given to military personnel. The anthrax vaccine alone is given as a six-dose
primary series followed by a yearly booster. It has never been shown to
be effective, which is especially so against weaponized anthrax. Because
rapid deployment of such a large number of soldiers was required, Pentagon
officials compressed the vaccine schedule over a little more than a week.
This is extremely hazardous, leading to a tremendous increase in complications.
If individuals do choose to engage in this risky activity, they should
separate vaccinations by 6 months in children and perhaps longer in adults
in order to give the immune system time to settle down. For the reasons
I have discussed already above, it's my belief that most, if not all, vaccines
need to be abandoned, since they have not been shown to be effective and
there are reasonable and infinitely safer alternatives.
- In addition it is vital to maintain nutritional health.
Numerous studies have shown that nutritional depletion, even of one or
two nutrients, dramatically increases vaccine complications. This is especially
so for Vitamin A (as mixed carotenoids), vitamin E and vitamin D3. I would
recommend a daily multivitamin/ mineral supplement without iron. In addition,
I would recommend 1000 mg. of ascorbate (as magnesium ascorbate) three
times a day between meals, vitamin E either as d-alpha-tocopheryl succinate
or mixed tocopherols (natural vitamin E) 400 IU a day and DHA oil capsules-100
mg. three times a day. Dosages for children would have to be adjusted
for weight and age.
- Vitamin D3 is particularly important since it is known
to regulate immune reactions and calm down those reactions that are overactive.
New studies have shown that adults should be taking 1000 to 1500 IU of
vitamin D3 instead of the previous 400 IU recommended by the government.
- A number of experiments have shown that vitamin D3 can
significantly reduce the neurological damage caused by multiple sclerosis-like
experimental reactions (experimental allergic encephalomyelitis).
- So, what are the alternatives to vaccinations? It is
now accepted that immune function declines with age and that this is purely
secondary to nutritional deficiency. This decline in immunity explains
the 36,000 deaths often attributed to the flu each year among the elderly.
Most of these deaths could be prevented simply by adding the nutrients
known to repair and maximize immune function, which I have listed above.
Additional immune activation can be achieved by the use of non-specific
immune stimulation as with beta-1,3/1,6-glucan, a highly purified extract
of yeast cell walls. To minimize bystander damage one takes this immune
stimulant only during periods of high risk, such as flying on an airplane,
and at the first sign of infection. Supplementation is terminated three
days after the symptoms subside. This is infinitely safer than vaccination
and, in my experience, more effective.
- A recent study done at the Chemical and Biological Defense
Section in Alberta, Canada demonstrated the remarkable effects of beta-1,3/1,6-glucan
against anthrax infection. Using mice infected with anthrax, they found
that prior immune stimulation using beta-1,3/1,6-glucan reduced mortality
from 50% to 0%. In addition, it lowered anthrax bacterial counts in the
lungs 4 to 8 fold and doubled the number of bacteria-free animals. In
fact, they found the beta-glucan helped considerably even if given after
the infection was established, increasing survival from 30% to 90%.
- There are many ways to stimulate immunity safely using
nutritional methods. In addition, non-specific nutritional immune restoration
using beta-1,3/1,6-glucan can be used in high-risk individuals that are
excluded from vaccination, such as those with serious heart diseases and
neurological diseases. In addition, beta-1,3/1,6-glucan has been shown
to protect the bone marrow from radiation damage and to lower cholesterol.
- It is important to avoid omega-6 oils, such as corn,
- sunflower, peanut, soybean and Canola oils. The omega-6
oils are powerful immune suppressants. Avoid all forms of sugar, which
also suppresses immunity. Drink distilled water or water filtered by reverse
osmosis and avoid sweetened drinks, even fruit drinks. Avoid all forms
of fluoride, since it damages antioxidant enzymes, increases free radical
production, damages DNA repair enzymes, suppresses immunity, produces skeletal
and dental fluorosis, hypothyroidism and produces extensive brain cell
- Since most foods are contaminated with numerous excitotoxin
additives, you should prepare your foods fresh. Your diet should contain
at least three servings of fresh fruits and vegetables daily. Vegetables
with the deepest color are preferred, but some white vegetables, such as
cauliflower are also important.
