Acid-Alkaline Myth: Part 1

RAEL’S COMMENT: one of the best site explaining why the acidic/alkaline diet is a myth. Another problem for vegetarians or vegans.

 

Many of you have probably heard of the ‘alkaline diet’. There are a few different versions of the acid-alkaline theory circulating the internet, but the basic claim is that the foods we eat leave behind an ‘ash’ after they are metabolized, and this ash can be acid or alkaline (alkaline meaning more basic on the pH scale).

According to the theory, it is in our best interest to make sure we eat more alkaline foods than acid foods, so that we end up with an overall alkaline load on our body. This will supposedly protect us from the diseases of modern civilization, whereas eating a diet with a net acid load will make us vulnerable to everything from cancer to osteoporosis. To make sure we stay alkaline, they recommend keeping track of urine or saliva pH using handy pH test strips.

In this two-part series, I will address the main claims made by proponents of the alkaline diet, and will hopefully clear up some confusion about what it all means for your health.

Foods can influence our urine pH

Before I start dismantling this theory, I want to acknowledge a couple things they get right. First, foods do leave behind acid or alkaline ash. The type of ‘ash’ is determined by the relative content of acid-forming components such as phosphate and sulfur, and alkalis such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. (12) In general, animal products and grains are acid forming, while fruits and vegetables are alkali forming. Pure fats, sugars, and starches are neutral, because they don’t contain protein, sulfur, or minerals.

It’s also true that the foods we eat change the pH of our urine. (34) If you have a green smoothie for breakfast, for example, your pee a few hours later will likely be more alkaline than that of someone who had bacon and eggs. As a side note, it’s also very easy to measure your urine pH, and I think this is one of the big draws of the alkaline diet. Everyone can probably agree that it’s satisfying to see concrete improvements in health markers depending on your diet, and pH testing gives people that instant gratification they desire. However, as you’ll see below, urine pH is not a good indicator of the overall pH of the body, nor is it a good indicator of general health.Read More

John Paul II crucifix crushes man

RAEL’S COMMENT:  The “protection of god”…lol . If you add the thousands who have been killed when they take refuge in churches when there are earthquakes or hurricanes and are crushed to death when the churches fall on them you see how their imaginary god is powerless.

A 21-year old man has died after being crushed by a crucifix erected in honour of Pope John Paul II in northern Italy. Marco Gusmini was killed instantly and one other man taken to hospital, Italian media reported.

Part of the 30m-high (100ft) sculpture collapsed at a ceremony ahead of the Pope’s canonisation. John Paul II and his predecessor, Pope John XXIII, are due to be declared saints on Sunday.

The crucifix commemorates the Pope’s visit to the area in 1998.

France pulls out of Rwanda genocide commemorations

RAEL’S COMMENT:  Another crime of France in Africa which was never really decolonized . That will be done only when ex french African colonies, revert to pre colonization borders, stop using french language, and apostatize massively from the colonizator ‘s religion : christianity. Like Mao Tse Toung said brilliantly there is no revolution as long as there is no cultural revolution.

The French government has announced that it is pulling out of the 20th anniversary commemorations on Monday for the Rwandan genocide.

The decision follows an accusation by the Rwandan President, Paul Kagame, that France participated in the mass killings in 1994. Mr Kagame has previously made similar allegations, which France has denied. The French foreign ministry said the remarks went against reconciliation efforts between the two countries. French Justice Minister Christiane Taubira has cancelled her plans to attend the events in Kigali on Monday, foreign ministry spokesman Romain Nadal says.

Rwanda is holding a series of events to commemorate the 1994 genocide

Speaking to the French-language weekly news magazine Jeune Afrique, Mr Kagame denounced the “direct role of Belgium and France in the political preparation for the genocide”. Rwanda was a Belgian colony until 1962.

15 Major Corporations You Never Knew Profited from Slavery

RAEL’S COMMENT:  They should have all their assets seized and distributed equally to descendants of slaves and countries where they were abducted.

 

The enslavement of African people in the Americas by the nations and peoples of Western Europe, created the economic engine that funded modern capitalism. Therefore it comes as no surprise that most of the major corporations that were founded by Western European and American merchants prior to roughly 100 years ago, benefited directly from slavery.

Lehman Brothers, whose business empire started in the slave trade, recently admitted their part in the business of slavery.

According to the Sun Times, the financial services firm acknowledged recently that its founding partners owned not one, but several enslaved Africans during the Civil War era and that, “in all likelihood,” it “profited significantly” from slavery.

Push in Sardinia for online vote on independence from Italy

RAEL’S COMMENT:  Excellent ! All over the world more nations want to separate from artificial big states created by military force by kings and empires from the past. That’s good for peace! Only huge artificial empires keeping by force people with very different languages and cultures can maintain huge armies with weapons of mass destruction endangering all Humanity, Viva free Sardinia, … Scotland,  Crimea, Venezia, Tahiti, Guadeloupe, Catalonia, California, Basques, Corsica, etc

The island of Sardinia plans to hold an online referendum on independence from Italy, following in the footsteps of country’s northeastern Veneto region, where a similar vote revealed high separatist moods.

Over 2 million people in Veneto took part in the internet referendum on March 16-21, with 89 per cent of them voting in favor of cutting ties with Rome.

Despite the plebiscite having no legal power, it inspired the Sardinian Action Party (PSdAz) to organize an independence online vote in Sardinia, Nuova Sardegna website reports.

PSdAz advocates withdrawal from Italy and the cultivation of Sardinian traditions and values.

“We’ll just ask the Sardinians if they want independence,”
 said John Hills, the Sardinian Action Party’s national secretary. “Their opinion is important. We believe that this issue has become very relevant today and we want to clarify what exactly is the will of the people.”

A motion to stage an online referendum will be presented before the regional council in Sardinia on Thursday.

The Raelian Movement explains the many recent UFO sightings in Canada

Montreal, March 26, 2014 – According to Chris Rutkowski, director of UFOlogy Research of Manitoba, a considerable number of Canadians have reported being the witness of a UFO sighting last year. In fact, UFOs have been reported in record numbers unequalled in 25 years. Mr. Rutkowski explained this phenomenon by suggesting that, “Perhaps, more people are simply searching for divine answers and catching a glimpse of something else.” Another possibility, as he explained, could be because “The downturn in the economy is leading to an increased desire by some people to look skyward for assistance.” Although this suggestion by Mr. Rutkowski is interesting, Raelians see it more as an apocalyptic sign.

Daniel Turcotte, leader of the Canadian Raelian Movement asserted, “This increase in UFO sightings only confirms our religious writings in which it is clearly stated that the Elohim of the Bible – the extraterrestrial scientists who created all life on earth – would be making increased appearances “to see the reactions of public authorities, governments, and the press.” In the message the Elohim gave to humanity through their messenger, Rael, they say: The only help we will give you will be to appear in the skies more and more frequently from now on in order to make people aware (…) and make them want to learn more about the truth that you are transmitting. Gradually, thanks to these increased sightings, public awareness will also increase and our presence will no longer trigger stupid adoration, but instead a deep desire within the population to make contact with us.”Read More
