       Happy Canada Day!
Vitamins don’t do much for health, Fake Food, self-regulated
This week had a fair bit of unnatural news!
It's Official. Vitamins Don't Do Much for Health
Pharma has had so-called ‘experts’ denounce the effectiveness of vitamins since 70’s, . 
I recall Earl Mindell, early 80’s, giving the names of the ‘experts’, who were hired by Pharma, with the only intent to discredit vitamins, he warned to not get in an argument with them as they are highly trained in debate and use their credentials to bamboozle the public. 
I believe, given the push for fake foods, & the bioengineering of everything, there will be a greater focus to limit access to safe natural supps!
There are 1000’s of scientific peer reviewed papers on the benefits and safety of vitamins, though mainstream media will ignore the truth, as usual!
"The Minister of Health is allowing corporations to self regulate new gene-edited products with no gov safety checks. Canadians will be eating GE foods with no oversight. Join this CBAN meeting to learn what can be done! Time to work together #gmo #cdnpoli…"
Thank you, Rachel, for all you do to help wake us up to the FACT, Health Canada supports the ongoing development of novel bioengineered foods and medicines, GMO, Crispr, Lab/cell meat, NanoTech, SynBio, & more, onto the shelves of grocery stores, WITHOUT the consumers knowledge or consent. 
This is no different than the countless chemicals, additives, flavors, colors etc, in all processed food which have never required ‘scientific evidence’ or long term safety studies! As we know many of these toxic food additives cause cancer, heart disease and other chronic illness. It is why there is a health food industry!
You, the independent natural food stores and suppliers, of organic, local, clean, no chemical foods, may be the only people left to protect the integrity and safety of what our communities eat and use as medicine, thank you for what you do!
Happy Sales, Happy Canada Day!
Quote of the week from
Is your grocery bill going up? Last week, Canada’s consumer price index data showed that inflation has reached the highest rate in nearly four decades. Grocery prices have increased 9.7% and the cost of fresh vegetables 10.2%. Food bank usage among single-parent families is rising.

Eat Your Fruits & Veggies: Two More Reasons to Improve Your Diet
From the Natural Path Newsletter        
by Linda Woolven M.H., R.Ac & Ted Snider

Young or old, here’s two more reasons to make your diet healthier.

New Research: Diet & ADHD
It has long been known that people with ADHD are deficient in a number of nutrients. So, it is surprising that there has been so little research on diet and ADHD. Well, all of that just changed very fast.
In the past few months, three studies have come out on diet and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and they all arrived at the same conclusion. Eat more fruits and vegetables!

The first looked at the DASH diet, which is high in fruits and vegetables. Eighty kids between 6 and 12 years of age were put on the DASH diet or a control diet for 12 weeks. Even in that short time, the kids on the DASH diet had significant improvement compared to the control group (Eur J Nutr. 2021 Oct;60(7):3647-3658).

The second looked at the Mediterranean diet, which also stresses fruits and vegetables. It is rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, beans and olive oil. It is low in meat, eggs, dairy, sugar and saturated fat and moderate in fish. This study looked at 360 kids between 7 and 13 years old. It found that the kids who most closely followed a Mediterranean diet were 51% less likely to develop ADHD than the kids who least closely followed it (Clin Nutr ESPEN. 2022 02 ;47:346-350).

The third was just published. It looked at the diets of 134 kids with ADHD and asked their parents to rate their symptoms of inattention. Like the first two studies, it found that eating more fruit and vegetables was associated with significantly less inattention (Nutritional Neuroscience May 2022;doi:10.1080/1028415X.2022.2071805).

The data for the third study was part of a study that also found that children with ADHD were 3 times more likely to have significant improvement in their ADHD symptoms when they took a supplement that included 36 vitamins and minerals: 54% of the supplement group responded versus 18% of the placebo group (J Am Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry. 2022 May;61(5):647-661).

This explosion of news on how to safely improve symptoms of ADHD is great news for the 8-10% of kids in the US and the 5% of kids in Canada with ADHD.

The Mind Diet for Your Mind
What you eat affects the health of every part of your body, including your brain. Would you change your diet if it could keep your brain young and help prevent Alzheimer’s?
One of the healthiest diets is the Mediterranean diet. It is rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, beans and olive oil. It is low in meat, eggs, dairy, sugar and saturated fat and moderate in fish. It can also include moderate red wine. A review of five studies found that the Mediterranean diet can reduce the risk of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s by 33% (J Alzheimers Dis 2014;39(2):271-82).

A recent study confirmed these exciting results. It looked at the diets of 511 people whose average age was 74.  They found that following a Mediterranean diet was associated with better cognitive function, specifically, people who more closely followed the diet had significantly better verbal ability. The study found a key role for eating more green leafy vegetables and less red meat (Experimental Gerontology December 2020;142:111117).

Recent research in cognition has experimented with combining the Mediterranean diet with the high blood pressure beating DASH diet. Like the Mediterranean diet, the DASH diet is rich in vegetables, fruits, nuts and whole grains and poor in saturated fat sources like meat and dairy.

The MIND diet focuses on plant based foods and lowers animal based meat and saturated fats as well as sweets. Researchers developed the diet by analyzing the Mediterranean and DASH diets and selecting the foods with the strongest evidence for preventing dementia. Once again, they found that green leafy vegetables were at the top of the list.

When the researchers tried following older adults for 4.7 years, they discovered that the MIND diet significantly slows cognitive decline. Those who most closely followed the MIND diet had brains that were the equivalent of being 7.5 years younger (Alzheimers Dement. 2015 Sep;11(9):1015-22)!

The MIND diet recommends eating green leafy vegetables at least 6 times a week along with at least one other serving of vegetables every day. It recommends at least 3 servings of whole grains a day and at least 2 servings of berries a week, 3 of beans and 5 of nuts. Red meats (beef, pork and lamb), cheese, butter, stick margarine, sweets and fast and fried foods are limited. Fish can be eaten once a week and poultry twice. The diet emphasized olive oil and allows a little wine.

A 4.5 year study of 923 people between 58 and 98 found that people who most closely followed the MIND diet had a 53% reduced rate of Alzheimer’s (Alzheimers Dement. 2015 Sep;11(9):1007-14). That might merit a change in menu.

Can You Work Less and Earn More?

In 2014, one of my professors in my MBA program asked the question, “Why are you here?” As he went around the class, many people responded, “To Further my Career", “To Earn More Money”, “To get a Better Job” and when it came to me, I responded, “I am here to Learn How to Work Less and Make More Money”. I remember to this day, when I said that, there was a gasp of unbelief in the room and several people said out loud that that is not possible. “How can you work less and earn more?”

Earning more and working less is a concept beyond imagination for most small business owners as it was for those MBA students.

Human Fragility: Pure Food or a Reasonable Facsimile

Remain hopeful, there is still time to be prepared.”
The human species are of an incredible design, at the same time they are extremely vulnerable when losing access to life’s simplest things. Although every situation and person is slightly different, the rule of threes helps breaks things down: we can survive for three minutes without oxygen, three hours without adequate shelter in harsh environments, three days without water, and three weeks without food.

Hospital Study Shows that Covid-19 Can be Prevented with Hydrogen Peroxide

OMNS (June 29, 2022) Daily mouth rinse, gargle and nasal rinse with dilute hydrogen peroxide solution can prevent Covid-19. 
In a recent study, over 4,000 patients and 89 healthcare staff of a hospital in Ghana used hydrogen peroxide on a daily basis during the peak season of Covid-19 season (April 2021 - Dec 2021). None of the 4,000+ patients got Covid-19. None of the 89 staff got Covid-19, except one who discontinued the use of hydrogen peroxide! [1] In another hospital during the same period, out of 424 staff who were fully vaccinated, 34 used hydrogen peroxide and did not develop Covid-19, but 53 didn't use hydrogen peroxide and developed Covid-19. This is statistically significant. Out of the 78 unvaccinated staff, 23 used hydrogen peroxide and none of them got Covid-19. Of the remaining 55 unvaccinated who did not use hydrogen peroxide, 35 got Covid-19. This is statistically significant. These results suggest that even vaccines are not as effective as hydrogen peroxide in the prevention of Covid-19.

Why precision fermentation is in the Non-GMO Project's crosshairs

The group dedicated June to educating consumers about the dangers of what it called “synbio dairy” — using genetically modified cells to create proteins identical to those in cow-produced milk.

“Be careful what bread you buy  – many packaged baked goods may contain potassium bromate, a food additive linked to cancer.

Multiple studies have suggested that this chemical increases the incidence of cancer in the kidneys, thyroid and other organs. Because of these health concerns, potassium bromate is banned in several countries, including Brazil, the United Kingdom, Canada and the European Union.”
