This Is What Happened!
Dr. "B" Began With...
"Gentlemen," Dr. "B" began, one of his most distinguished lectures, "It appears, from my vantage point, time has run out for mankind! A cataclysmic change is on the way to right wrong done to the 'balance' of the Universe...Our Universe; namely, Planet Earth.
"I want you to be ready for the Great Kill–Off coming to every man, woman, and Jack!"
With this, there was a definite 'Spirit' in the Camp! The men moved uneasily...me too.
"We will see this Killing Mechanism beginning in earnest sometime before—I think, next year! Most, friends, will not recognize the signs. Suddenly....Suddenly....practically all women who have gone through menopause will be coming down with and will be diagnosed with some sort of devastating cancer; especially breast cancer." It will be all those who are on estrogen replacement therapy, regardless of whether it be the new thing, 'Bio–Identical' hormones or other.
With that, folks, it was as if on cue, the wind picked up and created such a fierce howl, Dr. "B" had to discontinue and wait until another day.
When morning arrived, we awoke to hot biscuits with gelatin and glycine; It was most delicious as Dr. "B", being the French Chef he is, made them with coconut oil. He also served up a 'Giant' hoecake! This was also combined with gelatin and glycine. We learned what he was doing was demonstrating and showing us how to eat to stay alive when all hell is upon earth. Also served with the fare was plenty of hot real coffee; which he had stored from the 70s. Yes! He's been in communication with someone and has been preparing since then and earlier so that he could—he was told—to 'show and demonstrate how to survive and eat less!'
Something, however, had happened during the night. When morning arrived and we awoke to the smell of hoecake, biscuits, and hot java, Dr. "B" was not himself! I have seen him this way before. He must have had another 'visitor' because he was extremely solemn! After breakfast and cleanup, the men remarked among themselves, 'He's different! Did you see that light in the camp at about 0300? Our leader was conversing and gesticulating toward the universe as 'they' were in deep conversation.'
When KP duties were finished for us, and trash buried or burned in the camp fires, Dr. "B" said, "I have extremely important things to discuss with you, gentlemen ... and it is not pleasant. See to it that you transmit what I discuss just now to the women in your life; later, I will tell you things similar!
And with this he began:
The Estrogen Debacle!
As you know, from previous lectures, the new thing is the so–called 'Anti–Aging' Foundations springing up everywhere throughout the world, with leading scientists, physicians, and so–forth spearheading such. In fact, some are now saying we will soon be able to not only live to 120 years old, but forever!
And the new buzz words are 'Youthful' hormone levels! You already know about what the testosterone injections, creams, pills, gells, etc. are setting one up for with the aromatase enzymes not controlled. We discussed that a few days ago. Now! There is something worse for women!
Well, let us take a very close look at the 'Bio–Identical' hormone approach, we discussed just recently; but this time in more detail.
But first, consider that 'The Great White Spirit' in all His wisdom had a reason for only so many eggs a human of feminine gender would carry, until depleted through normal monthly periods. When that was finished, there is a change.
However, man in his infinite wisdom, has devised a way to keep her 'Forever Young'! She is given a cyclic schedule of taking the new biohormones; given progesterone in some form; yet, she produces no eggs; no estrogen nor testosterone from her reproductive organs, as her time is finished after so many years in a normal pattern, barring no diseases or operations. Hence, this woman is forced to have Periods Again, with no purpose, other than to feel 'Feminine Forever' with no mood swings, hot flashes, and the like....
Still, a problem exists! She has a monthly BLEED!
There is something very wrong here; but, that's not all. The poor creature that buys into this, and they are doing it every day by the hundreds and thousands from every walk of life, will pay a horrendous price.
They have been set up to be included in striking this planet soon.
And no one who is pushing this on these poor creatures has even considered what I am about to tell you, and the facts are everywhere, but you've got to know something, and it appears that the 'Dumb Spirit' has invaded some of our greatest minds. Consequently, the feminine gender is about to pay a full price for this estrogen debacle.
What I am about to tell you men is deep...very, very deep. And, it is so subtle; yet, so terrible in effect; it can be missed, dismissed, put aside; or, overlooked! And still the scientific databases are full of it.
Incidently, the difference between a Scientific Database and Medical Database is that the former presents all the scientific research, both pro and con; whereas a Medical Database 'Picks & Chooses' what it wants you to know!
Another Great Lecture From Dr. "B":
Follow carefully, gentlemen, burning this into your memory banks:
Coupled with estrogen, the inflammatory state of men and women will and is rising, to a dangerous threshold, such that, as the Stress Response goes through the roof as things begin coming apart en masse, we will see Cancer; especially breast cancer in women, greatly increasing!
What we are seeing is a Perfect 'Killing Mechanism,' set in motion by thirty pieces of silver! It is something directly out of Hell! For a few pieces of silver, they have found a 'healthy-loooking' way to increase death and morbidity in women! And the Tower of Babel had been re-erected, through 'youthful hormones,' such that we are storming the very Gates of Heaven in hopes of living forever!
Glucuronic acid is a compound of this formula, 0C6H906, derived from the oxidation of glucose. It's an organic compound and is an important constituent of gums and mucilages. Glucuronic acid can combine with the hydroxyl (–0H), carboxyl (–C00H), or amino (–NH2) groups to form what is known as a glucuronide.
The addition of a glucuronide group to a molecule, becomes a glucuronidation process,which generally increases the solubility of compound. Therefore glucuronidation plays an important role in the excretion of foreign substances; especially toxins. It also does this to estrogen; This is Mother Nature's way of getting rid of excess estrogen. However, a problem exists, as you will shortly see.
This is why I am having you take L–Glutathione Reduced. The reduced means it is already in the active form for the liver to use immediately to make toxins water soluble in the liver and readily excreted via the kidneys., Because we have gone through these primeval forests; sleeping on the gound and in caves, drinking water from streams, though we purified everything, we may be absorbing a tremendous amount of toxins we do not know that have existed since time beginning!
And recall, men, from a previous lecture a day or so ago, men, as they age also have their estrogen, Estradiol, E2 rise; and, this can be very dangerous! Eating all of the 'Soy Products' out there, which are estrogen imitators, and we are seeing more inflammatory responses in men, who are taking testosterone injections, and, if they are not on Arimidex, an estrogen inhibitor of the aromatase enzyme, that takes free testosterone and converts it into Estradiol, increases one's estrogen. Hence, we are seeing may men on antiaging regimes—injecting testosterone—getting a 'large bay window'!
Hence, keep the liver's glutathione up and running in 'high speed!' Another reason, many will go down because of the unrelenting Stress, generating more and more inflammatory cytokines, etc., and couple with the Estrogen, I have been giving you Diindolmethane (DIM Plus), to take Estrogen down a pathway that is not detrimental to one's health.
And, men, with all the Stress you have been undergoing here on this trek, it is imperative I give you this lecture; such that, you do not go down from this Stress which will be analogous to—but far worst than this, as the The Great Events break...and are now...breaking over our heads and we are obliged to live through it!
And, with what is now hitting Planet Earth, this will help in the overall scheme of things for our survival to make it to better times.
Akerlund, et al., 1981, reported that there is little difference in the post menopausal tissue of women ...get this, tissue concentration of Estradiol (E2)—the most active form of the three estrogens in a human's body, compared to a menstruating woman during her follicular phase!
Even though there are direct actions of progesterone on the estrogen receptors, and these actions help keep estrogen in low concentration in the blood by keeping prolactin from activating estrogen receptors, there are still numerous processes which activate the increased concentation of tissue estrogen. Yet, many are taking the 'Bio–Identical' hormones with progesterone included, and their blood tests show estrogen to be within normal levels. However, no one is doing biopsies of various other tissues to see where the woman stands in regard to too much estrogen.
Dr. Ray Peat points out in "To Prevent Tissue–Bound Estrogen In Aging" with enormous references, "that there are many other process [other than just progesterone] that increase or decrease tissue concentration of estrogen that changes with aging.
"There are two kinds of enzyme that produce estrogen. Aromatase converts male hormones into estrogen [Even when women age, they produce androgens from the adrenal glands, such as DHEA & DHEA–S, converted in tissues by the aromatase enzyme to estrogen]. Beta–glucuronidase converts the inactive estrogen–glucuronides into active estrogen. The healthy liver inactivates practically all the estrogen that reaches it, mostly by combining it with the "sugar acid," glucuronic acid. This makes the estrogen water soluble, and it is quickly eliminated in the urine.—parenthetical expression by Kong.
"But, when it passes through inflamed tissue, these tissues contain large amounts of beta–glucuronidase, which will remove the glucuronic acid, leaving the pure estrogen to accumulate in the tissue."
You know, estrogen can generate cancer, when it is in excess; and/or the above matters are not taken into consideration. However, what is the whole of America on and told to increase their intake of? Polyunsaturated fatty acids; especially fish oils; now, the krill oils, and the so–called new 'PEOs' discussed at the base of that neighboring mountain over there.
Dr. Ray Peat writing in Fats and Degeneration, says:
Dr. "B"s New Certificates:Here Are Four...Of Many...
"The Light Was Good" Lecture!
With increasing estrogens and its mimetics now everywhere in our society, one is not told about how to protect against it and its imitators. The most important factors to protect against estrogen in its various forms also turn out to protect:
All these, along with estrogen are involved in
- Against shock,
- Ionizing radiation,
- Free radicals,
- Lipid peroxidation,
- Atrophy of the Thymus,
- Cells killing themselves (apoptosis) and,
The following items, gentlemen, must be included in what you store for the very bad times just around the corner, and you should be on them now, regardless of what your tests show in terms of Thyroid Hormone, which, as you now know, are highly inaccurate!
Be on these NOW!
- Niacinamide (capsules or tablets above and beyond a multivitamin tablet),
- Progesterone (as a rub-on cream),
- Carbon dioxide, get the Bicarb tablets we have recommended,
- Thyroid Hormone (T3), and...
- Red Light
What these things do are to protect against Prostaglandins—recall what we said about this recently, and Free Fatty Acids—Prostaglandins are made from PUFAs, polyunsaturated fatty acids.
The Red Light!
More on Unsaturated Fats!
You learned why these oils, in the last lecture or two, are considered 'Toxic.' However, what is making them even more toxic is not the quantity of PUFAs one ingests; it is the ratio between them and Saturated Fat, which most in various countries have been taught to demonize and avoid. When we consider free radical production, age pigment formation, obesity, inflammation, blood clotting, energy production and immunity—which incidently, unsaturated fats, such as the Omegas, PEOs, etc., slow down and dam up the immune system, are given to AIDs patients to stop the immune system from overcoming them.
Can you imagine what is going to happen in a few short months or years as God's Smallest Creatures are and have been on the rise, with new diseases and no new drugs have been forthcoming (antibiotics) to destroy them, as our immune systems are stymied (or under attack) by eating all the PUFAs...the polyunsaturated fats?
All these situations man is heir to, and will increase, as just given (inflammation, obesity, free radical production, etc.,) respond to the ratio of PUFAs to Saturated Fats, and as the ratio goes higher, the probability of harm rises in the body. Hence, an important reason to eat real butter and Coconut Oil.
The relationship between these Toxic Oils and Estrogen. One example is that young girls are having periods earlier and earlier if estrogen is high in their diets from mimetics when the unsaturated oils are present in abundance in their diets, with Saturated Fat down in the child's diet!
Gentlemen! Are you beginning to get the idea how "The Killing Mechanism" is now in place for the biggest kill off the world has ever seen? Here, involved with the Kill–Off for all the 'Bio–Identical' hormones more and more women are opting for, look what is happening to the children of the world. And, this not only includes the feminine gender; it incorporates male children too.
See it this way for all humans: A 'system' in molecular biology is that which is under consideration at the moment of discussion. Hence, it is the body we are considering and thus, all body systems under the influence of the toxic oils are being damaged from three main attacks:
- Immune System Damage!
- Hormone Inequities!
- Oxidative Stress, which generates Reactive Oxygen Species!
Reactive Oxygen Species
Produced by the electron transport chain and at other sites. Generates other reactive oxygen species but cannot diffuse far from the site of origin.
Not a free radical, but can generate free radicals by reaction with a transition metal (e.g., iron: Fe2+). Can diffuse into and through cell membranes.
The most reactive species in attacking biological molecules. Produced by water in the presence of iron (Fe2+).
An organic free radical produced from RH (Polyunsaturated Lipid) by OH. attack. RH can be the carbon of a double bond in a fatty acid (resulting in -C.=C-) or RSH (organic thiol) (resulting in R-S.)
An organic peroxide radical, such as occurs during lipid degradation.
Produced in bacteria during the respiratory burst to destroy invading organisms.
Oxygen with antiparallel spins. Produced at high oxygen tensions from the absorption of energy. Decays with the release of light.
The unsaturated fats generate many changes in hormones! The most easily understood effect is what it does to the thyroid gland operation.
Hence, this is why I see so many clients 'beat down'; yet, their TSH is normal. The biofeedback mechanism is hindered.
So, one's physician, not knowing this, simply says, "Your TSH is normal; it's in your head"; or, "You have something else. Get out and exercise more."
Then, comes the 'Big Rub'! Keeping in mind all that we have been discussing, since the Thyroid Hormone is deficient, one's body is more often than not exposed to increasing/increased levels of the so–called, female hormone, estrogen. And, with thyroid hormone down and barely being used, and the patient feeling tired, no energy, lethargy, having memory problems, high cholesterol, then he is not using his cholesterol efficiently; nor is the patient making the hormones, progesterone and the mother of all hormones, pregnenolone, when thyroid hormone is low!
One is then set–up for 'The Killing Mechanism' coming! When thyroid hormone is present in sufficient amount, it, as just given, causes the body to use cholesterol and eliminate cholesterol. Therefore, anything that inhibits Thyroid Hormone probably causes cholesterol to be raised, as when something blocks this hormone from being secreted by the thyroid gland and from being used in the tissues!
- The unsaturated fats inhibit the secretion of the thyroid gland.
- It blocks the thyroid hormone movement in the entire body's circulatory system. Even worse than this, if some were to get through,
- The unsaturated fats inhibit tissue response to the hormone;
Beware of This!
I am seeing the following research quoted quite often in some new books and Life Extension Companies for proof as to why one should increase their PEOs, Omegas, unsaturated oils such as Flax, Borage, etc.
The reference is to Dr. George Burr and Mildred Burr. From what I am reading, the publications are usings the references from quoted references from other quoted references referring to the Burr's! Here's the problem: Evidently they have not gone and looked at the the time surrounding this work the Burr's did in 1929. I will give it here.
Again, something is happening in our ability to read, grasp, understand, and reason. The norm is, 'If its in a research journal; or some other publication, the reference must be without fault.'
What The Burr's Research Showed!
George and Mildred Burr published a paper, in 1929, on their research in which they claimed that unsaturated fats, primarily linoleic acid, an Omega–6, are necessary to stop a disease from occurring that caused dermatitis, slowed growth, kidney degeneration that was fatal, dandruff, and sterility. They claimed that these oils are 'Essential' to life!
At that time, during the 1920s, especially 1929, most of the essential trace minersals and most of the B vitamins were not known to nutritionists. What the Burrs claimed that was caused by lack of unsaturated oils in the diet, is easily caused by vitamin and mineral deficiencies, of which they had no knowledge what–so–ever!
What they observed in the animals of their lab, that were given no unsaturated fats in their diet was:
When the Burrs listed other research, which there was not that much during this era regarding fats, they had to have seen, as they quoted several abstracts, from Biological Abstracts, from Germany, a German study done in 1927, showing that a diet free in fat just about eliminated cancers developing spontaneously in rats (Bernstein and Elias). The Burrs did, on later dates, cite a number of German journals, of several studies, but dismissed those that said opposite to their study!
Why they did this is anyone's guess! Scientific dishonesty, I can only assume! Since 1927, the so–called 'essential' fatty acids, have been shown to be essential for the development of cancer!
Reread this last part again until it is imprinted on your brain! Think of what is about to happen to the mankind with all the proffering and telling one to eat the PUFAs, when we go through the Radiations Coming, The Galactic Plane; The Prophesied Comet; The Roiling Sun; The Pole Shift!
- Increased nutritional needs.
- An extremely high metabolic rate. But, at that time, the Burrs or anyone else, did not know that animals on such a died need more, an increased need, for minerals and vitamins; especially B6. What the PUFAs actually did was create a very slow metabolism in the animals! This effect is good for agriculture; the animals get fat, grow fast; gain fat weight; but, not muscle weight. And, they drink more water, adding to their weight! However, this effect is not good for you!
- Animals on this type of diet resist disease and sickness more easily. And, with added vitamins and minerals, fare much better.
- Animals on a low to no unsaturated fat diet, have less dementia, aging, autoimmune problems, and resists various type of inflammation. However, they have a high, as we are illustrating, metabolic rate, since the thyroid is running higher; adding proper vitamins and minerals, including B6, tames the problems the Burrs described from their observation of the lab animals.
Dr. Roger Williams, who is a discoverer of one of the B vitamins and author of, 'Biochemical Individuality,' sometime in the 1940s, at his laboratory at the Clayton Foundation Biochemical Institute, at the University of Texas, produced the same results as the Burrs on laboratory animals, and discovered that the "Fat Deficiency Disease" of the Burrs animals was in actuality, a Vitamin B6 deficiency!
And to this day, you are still paying for that failed oversight to investigate those animals' high rate of metabolic activity!
You Are Paying For It In Terms Of:
The Williams animals also had a high rate of metabolism that were on a fat free diet in their cages. Yet, the Burrs made an inductive leap into the dark, and did not investigate their observation for its important ramifications . . . which should have been, an increased need for vitamins and minerals in relation to their extreme rate of metabolism.
I wonder if the hyperactive child would fare better in learning and discipline and behavioral changes if given a good B–Complex, along with an excellent mineral tablet?
- Immune Dysfunction When Disease Hits Hard!
- Tiredness and Sluggisness!
- Increased Susceptibility To Cancers. . . And More!
Two Very Sobering Thoughts:
FromThe Two-Fold Chastisement:Visions of the Coming Earth Changes
Many holy people, seers, and other instruments of God have referred in their prophecies to the vast numbers of dead that will cover the earth when the Chastisement is over. And…there will be no one to bury the bodies. Rose Colomba spoke of "large multitudes" of corpses.
Saint Gaspar du Bufalo, founder of the Precious Blood Fathers, and who died in 1837, said "The earth will be covered with cadavers. All survivors will therefore think they are alone."

"Previous comparative studies have shown that long-lived animals have lower fatty acid double bond content in their mitochondrial membranes than short-lived ones. In order to ascertain whether this trait protects mitochondria by decreasing lipid and protein oxidation and oxygen radical generation, the double bond content of rat heart mitochondrial membranes was manipulated by chronic feeding with semi-purified AIN-93G diets rich in highly unsaturated (UNSAT) or saturated (SAT) oils. UNSAT rat heart mitochondria had significantly higher double bond content and lipid peroxidation than SAT mitochondria. They also showed increased levels of the markers of protein oxidative damage malondialdehyde-lysine, protein carbonyls, and N(e)-(carboxymethyl)lysine adducts." "These results demonstrate that increasing the degree of fatty acid unsaturation of heart mitochondria increases oxidative damage to their lipids and proteins, and can also increase their rates of mitochondrial oxygen radical generation in situations in which the degree of reduction of Complex III is higher than normal. These observations strengthen the notion that the relatively low double bond content of the membranes of long-lived animals could have evolved to protect them from oxidative damage."

Gerontology 1993;39(1):7-18. Modulation of membrane phospholipid fatty acid composition by age and food restriction. Laganiere S, Yu BP. H.M. "Phospholipids from liver mitochondrial and microsomal membrane preparations were analyzed to further assess the effects of age and lifelong calorie restriction on membrane lipid composition." "The data revealed characteristic patterns of age-related changes in ad libitum (AL) fed rats: membrane levels of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, 22:4 and 22:5, increased progressively, while membrane linoleic acid (18:2) decreased steadily with age. Levels of 18:2 fell by approximately 40%, and 22:5 content almost doubled making the peroxidizability index increase with age." "We concluded that the membrane-stabilizing action of long-term calorie restriction relates to the selective modification of membrane long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids during aging."

"The fatty acid composition of the mitochondrial membranes of the two ad lib fed groups differed: the long-chain polyunsaturated 22:4 fatty acid was higher in the older group, although linoleic acid (18:2) was lower. DR eliminated the differences." "Considered together, these results suggest that DR maintains the integrity of the cardiac mitochondrial membrane fluidity by minimizing membrane damage through modulation of membrane fatty acid profile."

"In all groups subjected to infusion of thrombin an increase in plasma free fatty acids (FFA) was observed. The role of this increase for the development of fibrinolysis inhibition was tested by infusion of norepinephrine alone and in combination with nicotinic acid. Norepinephrine caused an increase of FFA after 2 hours and in urokinase inhibitor activity after 24-48 hours. Both of these were diminished by high doses of nicotinic acid, indicating that the release of FFA rather than intravascular coagulation might be the principal mechanism underlying the occurrence of fibrinolysis inhibition following trauma."

J Biochem (Tokyo). 1977 Aug;82(2):529-33. Effects of free fatty acids on fibrinolytic activity. Muraoka T, Okuda H. A novel method for the estimation of fibrinolytic activity is proposed. In this method, a fibrin clot suspension is used as a substrate (fibrin is known to be a physiological substrate of plasmin). The fibrin clot suspension was prepared by homogenization of human fibrin clots. With this method, we found that free fatty acids inhibited the plasmin activity, and long-chain, unsaturated free fatty acids had a particularly strong inhibitory action on plasmin. As regards the mechanism of the inhibitory action, free fatty acids may not inhibit complex formation between plasmin and fibirin, but may make it impossible for plasmin to act on fibrin due to deformation of the surface of the fibrin clot.

Neubauer K, Knittel T, Armbrust T, Ramadori G "Fibrinogen/fibrin deposition in damaged livers was studied by immunohistology." "Immunohistology showed striking amounts of fibrinogen and fibrin deposits in pericentral necrotic areas (short-term damage) and within fibrotic septa (long-term damage)." "The results show fibrinogen/fibrin deposition during short-term liver injury and liver fibrogenesis, which may suggest the involvement of a "clotting-like process" in short-term liver damage and liver fibrosis. The data might indicate that fibrin/fibronectin constitute a "provisional matrix," which affects the attraction and proliferation of inflammatory and matrix-producing cells."

The number and weight of mammary tumors per tumor-bearing rat tended to be large in the group with an n-3/n-6 ratio of 7.84 compared with those in the other groups. As the n-3/n-6 ratios were elevated, the total number and weight of tumors increased gradually."

"Changes in the proteasome system, a dominant actor in protein degradation in eukaryotic cells, have been documented in a large number of physiological and pathological conditions." "With the polyunsaturated fatty acid enriched diet, the chymotrypsin-like and peptidylglutamylpeptide hydrolase activities increased by 45% in soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL), and by 90% in the gastrocnemius medialis (GM) muscle. Trypsin-like activity of the proteasome increased by 250% in soleus, EDL and GM." "Proteasome activities and level were less stimulated with a monounsaturated fatty acid supplemented diet." "Unsaturated fatty acids are particularly prone to free radical attack. Thus, we suggest that alterations in muscle proteasome may result from monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acid-induced peroxidation, in order to eliminate damaged proteins."

Nicotinic acid effectively inhibited the posttraumatic increase in both free fatty acids (FFA) and fibrinolysis inhibition activity (FIA) in the blood in rats, indicating that FFA might be involved in the posttraumatic increase of FIA. The FIA in the liver was greater than that in other organs studied and was increased in the posttraumatic phase. The possible role of the liver in the posttraumatic increase of FIA is discussed.
