Fluoride-coated Frying Pans

If you are cooking your food in those convenient, non-sticking Teflon pans, you should know that you are cooking your food on fluoride. Fluoride is a very harmful man-made substance that sabotages and compromises health. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
If you are cooking your food in those convenient, non-sticking Teflon pans, you should know that you are cooking your food on fluoride.

Fluoride is a very harmful man-made substance that can compromise your health.


Chemicals

Fluoropolymers, the substances used to make Teflon pans, release a persistent gas when heated to high temperatures. They release compounds called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), trifluoroacetate, (TFA) and polyfluorocarboxylic acids (PFOs).

Even though these breakdown chemicals are generally considered non-toxic, it can be dangerous because they may cause long-term health effects as they accumulate in the body.

The good news is that Teflon will only breakdown into these harmful compounds if the cooking temperature exceeds 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Normally, home cooking does not often get that high but we should always take a precautionary approach when using Teflon frying pans and other non-stick cooking ware.


Alternatives

Look for cookware that holds heat well, prevents scorching and sticking, and has a heavy bottom.

Cast iron has been known as the first nonstick surface, requiring minimum fat and less cleaning. Some iron is actually released into the food but this isn't always a bad thing. Most Americans are low in iron so this isn't usually a health concern.

Stainless steel is another great alternative to Teflon pans. It is durable, long lasting, and is great for healthy cooking. Stainless steel is very accessible and there are many varieties of shapes and sizes.

Made of a combination of metals, stainless steel is durable and long lasting. Stainless steel cookware may have aluminum in the bottom of the pan but it is not a health problem as long as it is not in contact with the food.

Anodized aluminum cookware is sealed so the base metal (aluminum) doesn't enter the food prepared in it. The only drawback is that it must be hand-washed, even after the toughest, messiest cooking, as the anodization is corrupted when it comes in contact with commercial brand dishwashing machine detergents.

Ceramic cookware can be useful in some circumstances, such as baking and slow cooking. It's a nice alternative for people who like the heat distribution of cast iron, but hate the long seasoning process.

Be careful not to scratch the stainless steel because it can result in the harmful release of nickel or chromium.

Thank you for reading !

    A:

    Tom's of Maine (non-fluoride), Nature's Gate, Peelu and Ayurveda

    Q: What would you recommend to get rid of Fluoride from the body?

    A:

    Answer: Carbon (activated charcoal)

    Q: During a dental check-up today, my 6 year old son was given a shot to have a minor extraction and then prescribed Gel-Kam (0.4% stable stannous fluoride preventive treatment gel) to be placed on a few of his teeth. They warned me not to let him swallow it and not allow him to eat or drink anything for at least 1/2 hour after using it. He is scheduled to return next week Thursday. Do you have any suggestions/alternatives for fluoride treatment? I have no intention of putting the Gel-Kam in his mouth. Further, can you suggest a website where I can find recipes for wholesome lunches for him? We presently reside in Turks & Caicos Islands located in the Caribbean and getting organic is little to nothing over here.

    A:

    Give your son CARBON (Activated Charcoal). Mix half a teaspoon in water and stir well. This product will remove the poisonous fluoride.

    Q: I have some ACTIVATED CHARCOAL left over from my FULL BODY DETOX. I just read one of your reviews that stated that someone is using the charcoal with non-fluoride toothpaste. What are the effects if you use with regular toothpaste?

    A:

    Using the activated charcoal promotes good oral health. When using it with non-fluoride toothpaste it creates a natural and powerful supplement for your teeth. You can use it with regular toothpaste, it just won't be considered natural.

    Q: Last, I saw that you say charcoal filters are not good, but if a person has only city water to drink, isn't the filter better?

    A:

    Charcoal filters can be beneficial to filtering your water however they don't always eliminate all the fluoride and other things in water.

    Q: What type of toothbrush and tooth paste do you recommend for daily use?

    A:

    Great question!
    I always recommend a soft toothbrush. I prefer the bristles to be all the same length. The head of the brush will look flat rather than ramped up. When brushing I recommend that you angle the bristles so they are pointing toward the gums (so that is up for the uppers and down for the lowers) and place the bristles half on the tooth and half on the gum. The target area is the space underneath the gum. All living things want to survive. The microorganisms in your mouth want to survive just as much as you do and they can outsmart you. They hide where you do not go. They want a warm moist environment. If they can snuggle deep under your gums by eating their way there they will even morph into anaerobic bacteria verses aerobic bacteria. Anaerobes are very difficult to control so you want to clean this area underneath your gum from the get go. Do not let it get out of hand. You want to avoid sweeping your brush back and forth. You want to place it in this one position and vibrate it against your teeth and gums. Then actually lift it off and replace it one or two teeth ahead. You must be methodical about this and you must stay in the moment. Most people are "out the door" in their heads after 20 seconds of brushing! The other important piece of information is flossing. If you don't floss the microorganisms will hide between you teeth. It is simple. You have to clean each tooth 360 degrees around the neck of each tooth to stay healthy. Every 24 hours this should be done to out smart the bugs. So I encourage you to make this a game you know you can win!!!!! As far as toothpaste, I like Tom's without Fluoride. It is easy to purchase. There are other products that you can get at dentist's offices or online that are very good. Tooth & Gum Tonic is great. They were recently sold and you can go on line to see who is manufacturing it now. Kiss My Face also has a holistic approach to mouth wash and toothpaste. Even finding out about oral health products can be a journey.

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    Q: Hey wassup Dherbs.com, I got a question about when people try to say they clean the meat with vinegar and citruses before they cook it. What does "cleaning" the meat have to do with the pesticides, worms, and other harmful things added to the meat? I read from your articles that the worms have a shell that forms in very high temperatures so it doesn't kill them.

    A:

    You can't clean meat, Beloved. Period! Folks are doing something just to be doing something! All meat is corrupted and toxic! Period!

    Q: Hey Dherbs.com I was wondering. Just the other night my friends baby had a temperature of about 104 and 105 degrees and she went to the emergency room and all those crap doctors gave was Motrin which is toxic and that did bring the temperature down but from a natural stand point how is the best way to bring down a temperature quickly and naturally because 104 and 105 is dangerous territory. Thanks for reading Peace Brother!!!!!!

    A:

    Greetings! Because this is common amongst people, we already have an article on the subject written. Please read our "FEVER" article as it offers prevention and remedy information. Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: I heard that regular detoxing removes toxins from the body, but in order to get heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, etc. You have to do a special/certain type of detox design to remove heavy metals. Do your detox program remove heavy metals from the body? BTW I have large amounts of arsenic and mercury in my body. I notice your detox program is 3 weeks and most holistic practitioners say it takes 3-6 months to rid the body of heavy metals through chelation. If your detox program removes heavy metals do I have to do several iterations to totally remove heavy metals to an acceptable level?

    A:

    The Full Body Detox removes heavy metals from the body via the use of activated charcoal. No other product removes heavy metal toxins like activated charcoal (carbon). Now if your focus is mainly on removing heavy metals, I suggest you use liquid bentonite clay (every other day while on the detox) and also drink plenty of vegetable juice that has plenty of cilantro in it. Cilantro is an excellent heavy metal remover, especially for mercury (due to mercury amalgam in the mouth).

    You don't have to cleanse for 3-6 months straight to remove heavy metals. You simply detox (Full Body Detox), add liquid bentonite clay, cilantro juice, perform castor oil packs for liver cleanses, get colonics performed and do enemas (coffee enemas), drink oxygenated water (1 ounce every 30 minutes), fast (once you're off the detox); perform hot water soaks in 2-3 boxes of sea salt, etc. And most importantly, you change your diet, lifestyle, thoughts, attitude, and environment.

    Q: I am writing to ask a couple of questions. I was reading one of the articles and it talked about the different types of cooking oil not to use. I wanted to know what would be a good cooking oil to use? I was looking for articles on HIV but didn't find any. I heard you on Warren Balentine speak briefly about AIDS. Can you enlighten me more? Also you talked about a home first aid kit in one of your articles. What exactly should be in a home first aid kit and is this mentioned in your e-book ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL, which I am about to order? And by me having a Mac book would I still be able to download the ebook?

    A:

    Using a Mac book to download, should not be a problem for one of our e-books. Good cooking oils include: olive oil, grape seed oil, safflower oil. In re HIV and AIDS and Home First Aid Kit, the articles will be up next week. So stay tuned, Beloved!

    Q: I have metal fillings in my mouth do I have to stay that way or can my teeth grow back. I heard that there are commercial mouthwashes that can grow teeth, but I want the natural way.

    A:

    The metal can be removed. However, it will take a very long time for the teeth to grow back or heal, but it can be done! A commercial mouthwash is unnatural and an unnatural thing cannot help the teeth grow back.

    Q: I've enjoyed learning from your website. I heard you on fm 102.5 in ATL. my question is regarding buying juices until I get a juicer. Can you recommend any particular one or what to look for when buying a juicer.

    A:

    Good fruit juice brands include Lakewood and Knudsen. In re juicer, for the most part any juicer will do if it JUICES! Stainless steel is BEST! Look for a juicer made of stainless steel.

    Q: I would like to know (1) Why you would not recommend soy? (2) What are some good recipes that you could recommend that are simple to fix? (3) What breads are good to eat? (4) What salad dressings are good and do you make your own? and if you make your own, I would like to get that information. (5) Also what is the 411 on wheat gluten? I'm thankful for all information and time.

    A:

    1. Soy

    Soy along with corn is the number one genetically-engineered crop on the planet. Soy is not digested in the body and this is why we shouldn't eat a lot of soy products or shouldn't eat it at all. Soy is an industrial product. I would only recommend soy as a meat-alternative.

    2. Recipes

    Beloved, I recommend that you purchase the Full Body Detox Companion ($40) which includes numerous vegan and raw foods recipes. But here are a few freebies:

    Famous Muslim Bean Soup (Small white/navy beans, celery, carrots, broccoli, garlic, onion, paprika, sea salt, maple syrup [optional]) Directions:

    1. Bring water in pot to a boil;

    2. Add beans, 2-3 tablespoons of sea salt, diced or chopped onions and garlic and let boil for about 45 minutes or until beans or soft/mashable;

    3. Add paprika, 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup, and diced or chopped carrots, celery and broccoli sprouts and let cook/boil for ten minutes;

    4. Let cool down to room temperature;

    5. Finished ? eat and enjoy! Great with some type of grain muffin.

    Veggie Deli Sandwiches (Use TVP, soy, hemp, or seitan alternative "meat" slices available at good health food stores). You can add/use: Cheese (rice, almond, hemp, nut, or soy cheese ? remember: some of these cheeses contain "casein" which is a dairy product); Nayonnaise or Veganaise as a sandwich spread; Non-vinegar Mustard (i.e. Whole Food?s "Whole Kids" brand ); organic green or Romaine lettuce; organic tomatoes; Kosher dill pickles (I personally prefer Trader Joe?s brand of sour dill pickles as they are made without vinegar and taste great); grilled onions (optional). I also sprinkle a little Trocomore brand Herbal Seasoning (or sea salt) on my sandwich. I prefer my sandwich on sprouted wheat bread, rye bread, Kamut Egyptian wheat bread, spelt, or mixed grain bread (Alvarado Market brand). This sandwich goes good with Barbara?s brand potato chips (ruffled style).

    Falafel Burger (to make a falafel burger patty: add chopped onions, black olives, and/or grated carrots and rice/almond/soy cheese; and mushrooms to your falafel mix; pour a little extra virgin olive oil on the pan or tray and let the falafel patty bake until ready).

    ADD THE WORKS TO YOUR BURGER! i.e. lettuce (Romaine, Green), tomatoes, pickles, Nayonnaise or Vegnaise spread; mustard (Whole Kids brand); cheese (rice, soy, hemp, almond, etc.); raw or grilled onions; vegetarian chili; veggie bacon, etc. Sprinkle a little sea salt or herbal seasoning. Be imaginative and inventive! Satisfy your palate!

    To add french fries to go with your burger: Wash and peel (unless you prefer to eat the potato skin) 1-2 organic Russet potatoes. Cut potato into halves and then into long strips. Put long strips (fries) into glassware or a pan or tray (nonaluminum), douse fries/potatoes with extra virgin olive oil (making sure oil gets all over potatoes). Bake in the oven on 350 or 400 degrees for about 45 minutes or until golden brown on the outside of potatoes. Make sure to turn the potatoes from time to time to prevent sticking. When ready, let fries/potatoes cool down. Add fruit-based ketchup and sprinkle a little sea salt on your fries ? and you?re ready to go!

    3. Breads

    Good breads to eat include: BUCKWHEAT, KAMUT WHEAT, AMARANTH, TEFF, RYE and MULTI-GRAIN.

    4. Salda Dressing

    Make a big green leafy salad with Romaine lettuce and/or Green lettuce (avoid iceberg lettuce), tomatoes, radish, carrots, cucumbers and any other vegetable you like. Be inventive and sprinkle poppy seeds, gomacio (sesame seeds and sea salt), herbal seasoning and/or other spices on your salad. For a dressing, try using extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil, apple cider or plum vinegar, lemon or lime juice (or combine them all). Remember , be inventive! You know what you like!

    5. Wheat gluten

    Wheat gluten is better than soy and i'd recommend it over soy any time. The problem with wheat gluten is that many Black people have a gluten intolerance which results in disease (Celiac's disease), so Blacks should be wary about this product, esp. if it causes health problems.

    Q: I am totally overwhelmed by the whole food combination thing. What is a simple way to remember and adjust to what goes with what?

    A:

    Simply eat your foods individually.

    Actually, food combining laws are not that difficult. At the bottom of the pages of the food chart on our site, it tells you what other food groups to eat with and also to avoid. And if it's still difficult, simply ignore food combining and just eat the way you're used to eating and maybe one day in the future understanding of food combining will come your way.

    A:

    We list alternative brand pads in Dherbs ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL. Brands off hand include Natra-Care (which I highly endorse) and Seventh Generation.

    Q: Is Crystal Body deodorant spray safe to use? It's supposed to be all natural No Aluminum Chlorohydrate, Fragrance and Paraben free

    A:

    Did you read the "BEWARE OF DEODORANTS AND ANTIPERSPIRANTS" article? "Also beware of crystal stick deodorants. If the brand only contains mineral salts (i.e. 'Naturally Fresh' brand), you can take a chance. But just make sure "aluminum" is not an ingredient in any crystal deodorant you purchase. And because manufacturers are sneaky and tricky and only care about profits, make sure the crystal deodorant doesn't list "alum" as an ingredient. Alum is short for "aluminum", as in ALUM-inum (Alum + inum)."

When it comes to how to eat right, most of us are lost. We're consuming far too many processed snacks, and we're not getting enough of what we need, like greens. About 70% of us are omega-3 deficient (which can cause mood disorders, inflammation and fatigue) and 77% of us have suboptimal vitamin D levels, a condition linked to everything from cardiovascular disease to asthma.

It doesn't help that we're inundated with nutrition overload. And a lot of this info isn't great; in fact, many health studies are reported incorrectly, in ways that are wildly misleading. One day we're told to eat Paleo, but the next we hear veganism is the way to go.

United Nations to Deploy Ebola Mission in Worst Affected States

The United Nations will create a special mission to combat Ebola, deploying staff in the worst-affected states - Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone - as the U.N. Security Council declared the outbreak a "threat to international peace and security."

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he will appoint a special envoy to head the U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), which will push a "rapid and massive mobilization" of people, material and financial resources.
