A meatless diet offers benefits such as lower blood pressure, a reduced risk of heart disease and hypertension. A new paper offers revised information on how vegetarianism provides extra intake of vitamins D and K for bone health, indicating that they may help prevent osteoporosis.
While giving up meat is extremely unappealing to some people, the latest research indicates that many could benefit from switching to a vegetarian diet.
This paper, published by the American Dietitian Association, reveals that a vegetarian diet may help prevent some diseases such as cancer, heart disease and obesity in both adults and children.
The report was written by Dr Winston Craig of Andrews University, and he further explained the positive outcomes for those following a vegeterian diet.
"Vegetarian diets tend to be lower in saturated fat and cholesterol and have higher levels of dietary fiber, magnesium and potassium, vitamins C and E, folate, carotenoids, flavonoids and other phytochemicals," he wrote, concluding that nutritional differences may explain some of the health advantages experienced by those following a varied, balanced vegetarian diet.
He further explained that dietitians can help their clients by providing this kind of information and encouraging them to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their meal plans, eliminating some meat for other forms of protein.
Al Franken became Minnesota’s new Democratic senator yesterday after last November’s extremely close election result, and media sources report that Franken was initially ahead by only 312 votes.
Norm Coleman accepted the state’s Supreme Court’s ruling and conceded defeat after hearing of the 5 – 0 vote for Franken.
Franken appeared on Saturday Night Live between 1975 and 1980 and again from 1985 to 1995. His strong left-wing views are evident in his work, including a book entitled Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot.
His nomination brings the Democratic congressional count to 60, giving them a majority, although some feel that all 60 so-called Democrats are not necessairly as much a threat as the figure indicates.
For example, according to Fox News, Joe Lieberman is known for his moderate views, while Senator Kennedy’s ill health means his is frequently absent and not expected to hold his position for much longer.
Yet, Franken tells the New York Times he does not view himself as the swing senator (lower cap), ready to push over the majority and help avoid fillbusters.
"That’s not how I see it," he told the news provider, stating that he was the second senator from the state of Minnesota, and that’s how he was going to approach his job.
There are drugs and synthetics—but what men over 40 need is testosterone. Doctors are quick to confuse steroids with natural testosterone.
Aging diminishes male testosterone. It can and should be replenished on a consistent basis. There is 5 percent cream and patches available from compounding pharmacies by prescription.
Besides the restoration of sexual power, testosterone therapy is proven treatment for cardiovascular and circulatory diseases.
Testosterone is an element essential for the existence and continuance of life.
The following are quotes and extracts from Testosterone Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases by J. Moller of Copenhagen, Denmark: (Broda Barnes Foundation)
- There is absolute clinical proof of the positive effects of testosterone on circulation.
- There is definite improvement in patients with impaired carbohydrate metabolism as shown by a decrease in plasma glucose levels.
- Dr. Charles D. Kochakian, as far back as 1951, demonstrated an improvement in nitrogen balance due to testosterone treatment. This is fundamental for the effect of testosterone on cardiovascular disease (CVD).
- Testosterone has a cholesterol-lowering effect.
- Testosterone therapy has an anti-diabetic effect counteracting the effect of insulin resistance and the improvement of retinopathy.
- W. Meyer Molleringhof (1964) showed improvement in patients with angina pectoris after injections of testosterone.
- Treated CVD patients show normalization of ECG abnormalities.
- Claudication (leg pain) patients had longer walking distances, gangrene healed and angina pectoris symptoms disappeared after three months of testosterone treatment.
- The testosterone level correlated negatively with blood glucose levels in all subjects.
- Aging and the deterioration of biological functions can be greatly and positively modified with ongoing testosterone therapy.
- There is considerable evidence to support the results observed with testosterone therapy. The theory supported by modern endocrinology, physiology, biology and cardiology, that cardiovascular disease (CVD) must be considered to be the result of a disordered metabolism within the cell. While the natural progress of life cannot be altered, the administration of transdermal testosterone makes it possible to intervene in cases where this progress has become accelerated. The use of testosterone can improve the status of an afflicted circulatory system and has saved thousands of patients from amputation, gangrene, angina symptoms and disability. Transdermal topical skin application of testosterone cream has saved many lives.
- The plague of male impotency can greatly be naturally relieved. Women need only 10 percent as much testosterone supplementation as males. Who among us can’t rub on a little transdermal cream daily?
Caveat: People with prostate cancer should not use testosterone.
