According to recent statistics, approximately 83% of the adult population in America consumes coffee on a daily basis, and 31% of avid coffee drinkers make this beverage the most essential part of their morning. Besides having a unique and refreshing taste, studies have lent evidence to the fact that regular coffee consumption  has a great number of positive effects on physical health, which include lowering the risks of diabetes, heart diseases,and even liver cancer. 

What are the Health Benefits of Eating Coffee Beans?

Coffee is one of the foods that contains the highest number of antioxidants, or more precisely, a group of antioxidants known as flavonoids. According to numerous findings, flavonoids play an important role in protecting the human organism from various ailments, such as inflamations, heart disease, and even tumors. A regular consumption of coffee can also help prevent the onset of Parkinson’s disease, and lower the risk of type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimer's, and depression. Other antioxidant compounds that play a protective role include caffeic acid, caffeine, chlorogenic acids, and eugenol among a few others.

What Are the Dangers of Munching on Coffee beans?

A brewed cup of coffee, diluted in water and milk contains approximately 95 mg to 150 mg of caffeine. This means that you can drink up to 3 to 4 decent-sized cups of coffee a day without stepping over the suggested 400 mg per day. However, roasted coffee beans are highly concentrated and contain a greater amount of caffeine than their diluted form. Furthermore, according to calculations, experts on this subject were able to determine that approximately 28 coffee beans equals 336 mg of caffeine.

This means that if you like to munch on coffee beans, make sure not to step over the threshold to avoid side effects such as laxative effects, high cholesterol, heartburn, and more severe symptoms like kidney problems and ulcers.

What is the Best Type of Coffee Bean to Eat?

There are numerous types of good-quality coffee beans that come from all parts of the world, such as Brazil, Colombia, and Ethiopia. Thus, feel free to experiment and opt for the one you enjoy the most. However do keep in mind that lighter roasts contain more caffeine than dark roasts.

Eating coffee beans is a healthy habit, as long as one does it in moderation. Knowing the limits of healthy coffee consumption is important in order to avoid serious health complications. So, feel free to munch on these exotic beans, but don’t forget to stop when you should.

This IS The Cure For Cancer

Growing Intrigue Surrounding GcMAF
Cancer Treatment

By Bill Sardi

GcMAF (Gc-protein macrophage activating factor) is back in the news again.1 GcMAF gained worldwide attention in 2008 when this health writer broke the story about its ignored cancer-killing properties.  It is the body's way of curing cancer without side effects, deliberately concealed for 26 years.

To reignite a growing controversy, more recently BBC News issued a scathing report against GcMAF. An undercover BBC investigation found a health shop in Bournemouth, UK was still selling this unlicensed medicine after it had been banned.  (But this would be like banning red blood cells. GcMAF is a blood fraction.) The BBC report then prompted Cancer Research UK to say there “is no scientific evidence to show that GcMAF works as a treatment for cancer2 and “[i]t is an injectable blood product, the source of which we have no knowledge.”3

A GcMAF biomedical scientist (Lynda Thyer) immediately responded to the BBC News report in a letter published in the Bournemouth Echo saying there are over 300 scientific research papers, peer reviewed and published in major scientific journals, 11 of them with her name on them. In fact, GcMAF has 20 beneficial effects in the body.  GcMAF is naturally made in the body by removal of two sugars from Gc-Protein in blood.  This process can be replicated in the laboratory to produce billionths of a gram of GcMAF, which is all you need.

The Need for Critical Thinking

Michio Kaku, in Physics of the Future, said, “Science is a double-edged sword; it creates as many problems as it solves, but always on a higher level.” When I reviewed his lengthy book[1] in 2012, I noted, “How can we shape our minds to embrace the constant of change and have the discernment ready to sort the profitable and helpful from the controlling, damaging, and destructive? What is the future of health freedom? How much transparency is too much? If ever there was a need for a Constitution for the Race of Mankind, it is now.” That was three years ago. The time has indeed arrived; the future is now.

The health-freedom community must work quickly in the establishment of a safe structure where the flashflood of new technology can be employed without compromise or at least minimizing the latter.

What you don't know can hurt you. What if there were a monumental environmental threat that you didn’t even know was happening? What if you found out about this threat and then realized it was affecting your health and that of people you know and love? What if you discovered that this issue had the potential to destroy our crops and trees, the soil they are grown in, our entire water supply, and the biosphere as a whole and that if you didn’t act, we could never turn back? What if this environmental threat came into use in an insidious way, just as GMO foods have come into our food supply without our knowledge or consent? What if it appeared to be harmless, but it wasn’t? And what if it were so cleverly woven into our culture that we didn’t even see it anymore? What if it were so masterfully stigmatized and wrapped in controversy that if you thought it strange or concerning, you’d be scorned or ignored?

The National Health Federation has recently returned from the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses in Bali, Indonesia, held over Thanksgiving week. But Christmas decorations were going up in nearly 90 degree heat, crinkling under high humidity. Santa Claus, reindeer pulling the sleigh, and flocked Christmas trees looked photo shopped into the tropical scene at the Codex meeting venue. NHF headed home, successfully giving billions around the World the gift of health this Christmas as we achieved the culmination of the work of 5 years in getting Vitamin C nutrient reference levels increased substantially. NHF President and General Counsel, Scott C. Tips’ news release will follow detailing the events of this crucial meeting. Thank you for your support, members and friends! Without NHF presence there, this gift would not be possible to ensure the health of others on our Planet.
