Do your snacks help the brain or … not?
Dr. Yvonne Lewis, from Dallas Texas, visited with us in 2009. What she said still holds.
It is a good time, right after Christmas and Valentine's and before Purim and Easter, to consider what we are eating and serving as snacks. Let's get smart.
Importance of Washing Hands and of NOT getting sticky with….
Another rerun from back in 2009 when we were on the radio. Dr. Ensign, a chiropractor, interested in health, came to share best ideas for mothers.However, he didn't recommend using that sticky alchohol stuff. It will kill some germs, but the rest are given a nice home.
Lots of the best preschools in the land make handwashing a standard routine for their little ones. Indeed, in order to keep the handwashing going, the alphabet song is encouraged, in order time the washing. Try out such ideas to make handwashing fun and regular.
In introductory Biology in high school, we learned that germs don't grow on clean surfaces. That is why gyms would have towels to wipe off the equipment: so germs couldn't grow in the wet. However, now, go into any gymn, (if you can stand the soup of chemicals in the air) and check to see if the equipment is not sticky. Besides, no one is considering what chemicals they are regularly putting in their body through their skin.
Fear makes you do all sorts of silly things. Instead, think.
Washing hands, with soap and water, prevents a lot of diseases. Studies show that children who wash their hands,and scrub their names miss less time from school, and (maybe therefore) have better grades. So much for what sociologists and epidemiologists can measure. The point is, being healthy is a good idea for being smart. And, okay fine, the argument for reverse causation could be made. Still, the point is: wash those hands.
This post seems to be timely, because Dr. Stella Immanuel has put out a new product to prepare for hemmorhagic fevers like ebola and Marburg. I saw in another social media post that someone is now claiming that ebola also came out of a lab. Look, I do not know about that claim. What I do know is that washing hands is a good idea. So is being healthy. Further, I have found great benefit (both in terms of health and budget) in herbal preparations and vitamins. Check it out for yourself. Also, see my GSB4Grans tab, where I pass long some info from people whom I trust (Enlows) and an organization that cites peer reviewed journals (Life Extension.)
Andy Wakefield on Autism ca 2009
LISTENERS SHOWED INTEREST
Last week, you my listeners, showed more than average interest in my re-run having to do with autism, which is of course, a serious learning disability,( even if academics isn't hindered. )Because of that interest, I thought I would post one of my most favorite reruns: the interview with Dr. Andy Wakefield. Back in 2009 he came into the radio station studio to answer questions. He was in the middle of being persecuted at the time. His publications, which were world class were being discredited, and for a time the British did not accept his license. All that since, of course, has been undone. He has been exonerated. But he no longer practices medicine nor holds a university post. The world is poorer for it. But the clinic he founded continues with someone else's name. Notice how calm and rational and even, and measured what he says is -- even though I was more enthusiastic that usual. Telling.
Before we went on air, he confided in me that he really wondered why people would do this to him. I reminded him that the Bible says "WHEN people persecute you for righteousness sake, then rejoice." I imagine that he, being an Episcopalian at the time, like me when I was a Presbyterian, had seldom heard that verse. Today, we might have more fulsome explanations of why many varied powers all together were pushing vaccinations that hurt children, but still, the verses apply. And really, in my mind, only Biblical, even apocalyptic explanations are sufficient.
SOCIAL MEDIA "HIT JOB" DISCUSSION
Shortly after this interview, I saw discussion in social media that was slightly disturbing. On Twitter, it seemed that some young women were conducting a smear campaign. They were fussing about why a doctor like this would hurt children. Finally, I "spoke" to the ring leader. I asked how she thought a researcher could hurt children. He was researching questions that parents had brought to him. That stopped the whole campaign.
Do you see? There was no logic in the argument (even had she had correct facts). She was promoting the idea that because he cast some doubt on the safety of vaccines, that he was stopping children from being safe, therefore somehow hurting children. Obvious nonsense, especially since he was already established as a world class gastro-enterologist. The autism question came to him because there were nearly always digestion issues around gluten and caseIn, or in other words, methionine re-uptake problem. Further, research doesn't directly or immediately DO anything, per se. So, it is not like research, even if were bad, immediately could harm some individual not connected.
Further, it was not the research or the researcher that had any pecuniary motive; but the opposition surely did. Perhaps I brought this up as a question.
Today, I wonder if this ring leader was really a concerned mom, or a paid social media hit man. In any case, some simple questions, rather than substantial claims, seemed to work to shut down a vicious conversation. Clearly, it was aimed to maim.
MORE RECENT RELATED CONTROVERSY
So, here is the re-run. Of course, in the light of more recent incidents, it is greater food for thought than it was before. Dr. Wakefield has said some things about current issues, which you will have to search for. I remember him comparing the harm of you know what, and saying it was greater than the reported harms from all previous ones. I assume that would have to have been based on VAERS data, which is admittedly .... limited.
SOURCES OF DISCUSSION TO CHECK OUT
More recently, the discussion has moved to the courts. Robert Barnes, Constituional attorney of note, considered proponent for "the common man" and occasional online didact,
Could Autism be caused by…. or helped by….. food?
Well, it might be too much too much to say that Autism is caused by .... this particular substance. It is, however, necessary to say that Autism MUST be created by something or some things in the environment. Back in the 1950s there were 2 or 3 per 10,000. Today, there is maybe 1 in 55 boys, 1 in 98 girls. So, obviously not genetic as was previously claimed.
Oh no! I just got an update on those stats. Del Bigtree reports now 1 in 30 children and as many as 1 in 18 boys! See minute 2:00.38 https://rumble.com/v4aqvo9-episode-357-borderline.html
There is some peer reviewed science on this. The AMA, last I checked, said they knew nothing. Well, that was 2006 or so. I hope they are doing better now. Although, we are now fairly skeptical of what we are told by medicals, now. Yet, we are hoping for progress, yes?
Clearly, we do know that autism correlates with toxicity. But really, we knew that fairly early on, say in 2007 if we saw journals like Applied Nutrition
Anyway, as mothers, let's do consider whether we want to expose our children to some of these common food additives: glutamate and other excito-toxins. Further, we will all want to know some of the things that others like ABA therapists, have discovered.

Dr. & Mrs. Colbert on Starting Your Child’s Day with a Good Breakfast
We re-run a cherished episode from when we were in the radio studio back in 2009. Mrs. Mary Colbert had agreed to come on, but when Dr. Colbert came on, I was so surprised I nearly dropped my coffee. He is such a star in the circle in which I was running at that time. Of course, he continues to be the rockstar doctor in the Word of Faith circles. Just look how young he looks! Amazing! And so funny with brightly colored socks.
Anyway, you will be warmed and cheered this winter morning, thinking about good breakfasts for your child. About right now we could use some encouragement, right? We are right between Christmas cookies and Valentine candies! Yikes! Make those a once in a while treat, and in the meantime, serve up some brain boosting protein and energizing fruits and vegetables.
There are so very many detrimental myths about foods, almost all of which are pushed by conventional authorities, for thier own benefit, or gosh... it has to be admitted, for the plain detriment of the population. Brains grow on good food.
Being sure that poor children had breakfast so they could do well in school was a concern from the lat 1880 until about.... maybe 1980. Back in 1880, charities that couldn't afford meat and eggs for the children at least gave them meat soup. But now, after 1980, I see schools serving up commercial concoctions of transfat and sugar and dyes. Just about the worst. And this is charity? No, it is either thoughtless or intended to be harm.
Now that you know better, you will do better.
Since the 1990s, here in Texas, we had mothers advocating politically, successfully, for taking vending machines out of schools, in hopes of having better nutrition. But then, school lunches often changed from agriculture department surplus cooked in the school to commercial vendors. So, once again, after all the effort politically, the will of the people was subverted, and the children suffer.
Now that you know better, you will do better.
BREAKFAST TO PRODUCTIVITY
Poptarts were just about my favorite when I was a child. That was well before they all had "icing" on top. My dad said, "No, you can put jam on your own toast." Actually, today, I have much better than the bread my parents could obtain. I do make myself cherry tarts once in a while, but normally I have boiled pasture raised eggs, and a variety of other things like pomegranet juice, grapefruit half, home-made pumpkin pudding, bone broth, and always the highest quality tea with collagen and often raw cream. Wow! living high on the hog as we say in the country, but want to live long.
And my grandsons get country eggs, bacon, and "farm milk" because they live on a farm -- and wouldn't have it any other way. Did I tell you that my grandsons are good competitors in chess tournaments, wrestling tournaments, and now starting in robotics competitions? And you bet, they do their chores everyday.
Contact Me To Start A School
Announcement to Lioness mothers. Sometimes knotty problems call for new solutions. You won't be the first mother who started a school to get education for your own child. Maybe you have already educated yours, but maybe now you are willing to help others. It is a mission that can pay for itself.
Here are my current thoughts about the need to start Christian schools. More coming.
