INDIA’S biggest manufacturer of ghee is planning to push it as a health food

Excerpts:

Ghee is the raw material at the heart of every authentic Indian curry and a holy offering revered in Hindu weddings.

The managing director of the Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation, which owns India’s No1 ghee brand, Amul, said that the relaunch aimed to shift perceptions of the product. He wanted the traditional cooking fat made from clarified butter to be seen not as an unhealthy offering used to excess by mainly older Indians but as a fashionable food for a new, younger, health-conscious generation.

“Incorrect and incomplete information has created false myths that ghee is not good for their health or the figure,” said Shri RS Sodha said. “The goal is to completely revamp and revolutionise the image of ghee.”

Manisha Tam blames a shift away from traditional Indian cooking fats for the soaring rates of diabetes in India. “In the past 20 years the medical recommendations have been to cut down on fatty ghee, so now Indians are switching to refined seed oils and corn oil,” Dr Tam said.

“But when they were using traditional fats like ghee and coconut oil, the rate of diabetes was much lower than it is today. The incidence of diabetes is still much lower in rural areas where people still eat a lot of ghee and a more balanced diet than in the cities.”

Coconut Oil Cooking Spray: Healthy or Toxic?

Coconut Oil Cooking Spray: Healthy or Toxic?

One of the most popular products available to the general consumer to combat the issue of baked and cooked food sticking to cooking surfaces is non-stick spray. A good reason to avoid these sprays is the fact that many of them are made with unhealthy oils and lecithins, generally derived from GMO crops such as soy or corn.

But what about if they are made from a healthy oil, such as coconut oil?

Unfortunately, these cooking sprays also contain heavily processed ingredients, including propellants. Propellant is what pushes the spray out of the can, and is usually made from such things as nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, or propane.

How the Government has Earned $3.5 BILLION from the Claim that Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism

How the Government has Earned $3.5 BILLION from the Claim that Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism

Few among the American public truly understand just how huge the U.S. vaccine market is. Not only do drug companies reap huge profits from vaccines, so too does the U.S. government.

For example, did you know that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has accumulated $3.5 BILLION in vaccine tax revenue which is currently “sitting” in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund?

This trust fund was established in 1988 “to compensate vaccine-related injury or death claims for covered vaccines.” The money in this fund comes from a $0.75 excise tax on vaccines recommended by the CDC.

So why does this Trust Fund have such a high balance, instead of paying medical expenses to families with vaccine damaged children? Probably because the government has decided that vaccines do not cause autism, the most common claim filed in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program since its inception in 1986.

Local Fox News affiliate Fox4kc in Kansas City has reported that 17-year-old Isaiah Rider has returned home to Kansas City, even though the State of Illinois still retains his custody rights. Isaiah was released from Luries Children’s Hospital in Chicago where he was being held against his will, and the will of his family. He is reportedly staying with grandparents while his mother fights back against “medical abuse” charges for disagreeing with the hospital’s treatment and wanting to transfer him to a different hospital. Isaiah lost 5 months of his life to confinement in a hospital, and is now anxious to get back to school and resume his life.

Isaiah’s mother Michelle believes they held her son to conduct medical experimentation on his rare disease, Neurofibromatosis. Michelle will return to Chicago Friday to face trial. But in the meantime, at least Isaiah is back home in Kansas City, staying with his grandparents.

One of the hardest baked goods to transfer over to gluten free with coconut flour would be cookies. How do you do it? It’s either not the right texture, too crumbly, too dense, requires too many eggs or simply bakes up into sawdust.
