Boost your brain health with
America's favorite ballpark beverage
Dear Reader,

Dr. Micozzi's Insiders' Health Major League baseball is in full "swing." And of course, no trip to the ballpark is complete without the constant refrain of "Beer here!" from stadium vendors.

Turns out, drinking beer is not only a relaxing way to watch a baseball game, it also protects your brain from neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer's. It even boosts your brain power and creativity. I'll tell you all about that new research in a moment, but first, let's back up...

Our ancestors drank beer to avoid disease

For much of human history, public water contained so many dangerous microbes, you couldn't safely drink it. Not even horses would drink it. So humans learned to make beer from grains, wine from grapes, and cider from apples. Beer contained just enough alcohol to kill the disease-inducing microbes in the water.

To make the alcohol in beer, you allow yeast (like a "brewers' yeast") to interact metabolically with grains. You also use yeast, of course, to make leavened bread and baked products. The metabolic action of yeast produces gases that "rise" through the dough, creating air pockets and the typical texture of bread. They also make the bubbles in beer.

Some anthropologists -- including my professor and a faculty advisor at the University of Pennsylvania, Solomon Katz -- believe the people of Mesopotamia (modern-day Iraq) and ancient Egypt first developed the yeast-grain interaction for the purpose of brewing beer, rather than baking bread. This theory makes sense, since grains haven't been part of the human diet for long in terms of biological history.

Eventually, bread baking did take off. Remember the biblical reference to "thy daily bread"? But, as I pointed out in a previous Daily Dispatch, the Book of Ezekiel gives us a very low-carb bread recipe compared to the bleached flour of today's typical bread concoctions.

Ezekiel 4:9 says, "Take thou also unto thee [whole] wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and spelt, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof." These grains and legumes sprouted and, of course, contained no milled flour or preservatives.

This Biblical recipe contains plenty of amino acids (19 in total) and complete proteins, as well as fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It certainly isn't the highly processed white stuff that leads to Type II diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Today, you can find bread that resembles the Biblical recipe in the refrigerated section. They keep it there because it doesn't contain preservatives and would go stale rather quickly on the shelf with all the other loaves they call bread. Imagine how much healthier we'd be today if we ate Ezekiel bread (and restricted other grain consumption to beer!)

Keep your brain hopping

Of course, beer contains another key ingredient: hops.

Hops grow as a vine. And, like many plants, it has potent biological effects. For instance, hops are powerful antimicrobial agents. Consequently, you add them to beer's yeast-grain mixture during brewing to halt microbial action at just the right times.

Hops also account for the bitter taste of beer. In fact, that's why the India Pale Ale (IPA) style of beer is so bitter. Originally, it was brewed with added hops to keep it from spoiling on its long, hot passage across the equator from England to India during the days of the British Empire.

One particular plant compound in hops, xanthohumol, even affects the brain.

Xanthohumol is a flavonoid, such as those found in berries, chocolate and red wine. Scientists study them for their many health benefits -- including protection against cardiovascular disease, cancer and inflammation.

Flavonoids also help give plants their colors. Xanthohumol imparts a yellow color, which helps give beer its familiar amber or golden hue. As I have written before, brightly colored compounds often signal that a plant has a wide array of potent biological properties. But scientific interest most frequently focuses on flavonoids' antioxidant potential. That's true with xanthohumol as well.

Hops protect brain cells

Recently, scientists treated brain cells exposed to oxidative stress with xanthohumol from hops.

The researchers found that xanthohumol neutralized damaging, oxidant chemical compounds in the cells. It also "turned on" the cells' cytoprotective genes that shield cells against oxidative stress-related diseases such as cancer, dementia and inflammation.

We already know oxidative damage contributes to the development of brain diseases. So the researchers believe xanthohumol is a potential candidate for fighting neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases because it stops this oxidative damage. (You can also learn about the common drugs linked to these neurodegenerative diseases in the lead story of the July 2016 issue of my Insiders' Cures newsletter.)

Of course, these findings don't mean that consuming large quantities of beer is good for the brain. Moderation in all things, as I always say. But I have often wondered whether the moderate alcohol levels in beer are one key to its health benefits.
Warning: Is this billion-dollar drug
stealing YOUR memory?
You’d never expect Alzheimer’s disease to be a SIDE EFFECT of this wildly popular drug—which is handed out like candy in doctors’ offices…

But that’s exactly what researchers at the University of California–San Diego discovered.

In as little as 24 hours of taking the drug, innocent people suffered from amnesia…“blackouts”…dementia…and yes, even Alzheimer’s disease.

One expert dug deeper into this billion-dollar scandal…

Now he’s releasing 30 years of never-before-seen research shown to cure Alzheimer’s disease—no matter what big pharma has done to you.

In some cases, severe dementia was REVERSED IN JUST ONE WEEK!

A staggering 25 million people have already swallowed this drug every day…do you? Click here for details on how you can reverse the memory-erasing symptoms.

Beer is "just right" for sparking creativity

According to another recent study, researchers from the University of Chicago determined the average person reaches his or her "creative peak" with a blood alcohol level of 0.075 percent.

But for simplicity's sake, let's round off that number. So let's say you reach your maximum creative level at the rounded 0.08 percent. Interestingly, in every U.S. state, you are considered legally intoxicated at that level in terms of your ability to operate a motor vehicle.

In forensic medicine, we classify the 0.08 percent blood alcohol level as the "euphoria" state of intoxication. This state typically includes sociability, talkativeness, increased self-confidence, and decreased inhibitions, with some diminution of attention, control and judgment. There is some loss of motor efficiency, though you can only detect it on finer tests of physical performance.

It would be fair to say that most forensic medical examiners would also agree there is an increased level of "creativity" that accompanies these other well-known effects. (For a dramatic example, see Cary Grant's performance as Roger O. Thornhill, in Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1959 movie North by Northwest.)

An advertising agency in Copenhagen worked with Denmark's Rocket Brewing to actually design a beer to bring about this creative peak in drinkers. They dub the beer "The Problem Solver."

It is a craft IPA brew (remember how India Pale Ale has lots of hops) with an alcohol content of 7.1 percent. (The "point 1" shows the precision governments require in warnings about beer compared to warnings about drugs.)

This beer is stronger than average. So the label comes with a chart showing how many beers, over how long (depending upon your weight) you should consume to attain the magic, "creativity-inspiring" number of 0.08 percent.

Of course, there is nothing magic about this beer. Forensic scientists have charts of how many alcoholic drinks per hour lead to various blood alcohol levels. As I have written before, to keep your alcohol levels in the "euphoria" range but below the legal limits, consume only one to two drinks per hour and let your liver keep up.

As for the neuroprotective benefits of beer, you can follow the same moderation guidelines established for other alcoholic beverages. One or two drinks a day should do the trick.

You can learn about all the brain benefits of beer as well as many other simple steps to support brain health and memory in my new Complete Alzheimer's Cure online learning protocol. In this protocol, you'll learn how natural approaches like moderate alcohol consumption, eating right, taking supplements, exercising, and incorporating mind-body techniques reversed Alzheimer's disease in a whopping 90 percent of people in a recent study.

And in the meantime, go ahead and watch the game tonight, even if it's not the Sox, and enjoy an IPA beer while you're at it.

Always on the side of science,

Marc S. Micozzi, M.D., Ph.D.

EMP's and our Electrical Grid.

Tom's Journal.

Hi  Friends,
    I mean no disrespect or rudeness when I say that so many of my fellow Americans are totally IGNORANT of EMP's.... and I am sorry if anyone is offended.  That is NOT my intention, dear readers !   But the truth must prevail and people 'NEED TO KNOW AND INDERSTAND THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE,  PLEASE !!    I understand that most smart, well educated Christians rely on our precious Savior and God Almighty, with His unchangeable prophecies and promises....  I do too !   But at least know the basics about modern reality, and how easy it would be to have this terrible EMP device exploded over our once great, thriving Country,  America !   And being somewhat prepared wouldn't be so bad either, friends.
     Frankly, with living, renting for now, paying my bills and recently supporting the find Christian church I am now attending near me,  I don't have much money left to prepare for an EMP.....   but I still want to know the basics and do what little I can.  
    First of all,  I want to be 'square with my God, Jehovah, and His Son, and my Lord,  Jesus Christ.'   Second,   I want to help a few other friends out if I can, and make sure they have THIS Information, too, as I am doing right here and now, today.   And then I might want to build a Faraday box, or cage, to hold a few things in them, like a good transistor and batteries, etc.   Because I believe that most of our communications will be down and out for the count.   But I would THINK and Pray that God would have Raptured all His followers and Believers up, up and away, to a very 'safe place' before something like an EMP event happens here.....  but that is just my personal guess and opinion.   So... opinions are like a 'nose,'  -- everyone has one....  Ha!     But I hope  you get my meaning,  friends, and readers.   
       Just like the so-called, "Lord's Prayer," at Matthew 6: 9,  we have a "Priority" of  what is most important... in a list of things that we should do, and also pray for.   "Let your Kingdom come.  Let your will be done, on earth, also in heaven."   Please understand that some people are actually praying for their own demise /  death !!  Because when God's Kingdom comes on earth...  only the Saved and Worthy will live/ be alive !   And anyone who champions ABORTION or the Gay, homosexual agenda WON'T BE AROUND !    They will already be in a whole different place, not a Paradise Earth !!  Hint:  the wicked Unbelievers will be in hell !   

Well,  even some pastors have chided and ridiculed me....  'why am I even Prepping and investing in certain monetary instruments, canned food,  batteries and a few candles.... duh.'   And I tell them all what I will tell you all right now:    I save and store a FEW things FOR THE DISTINCT TIME OF:    RIGHT NOW, TODAY --- TO WHEN THE RAPTURE WILL COME, or when/ if I die or get killed.   Period.   And when that time comes that I am not on the earthly scene,  will I really care who gets my few worthless dollars ? ? ?    If I am in heaven --- will I even bother to care about the goofy things left behind on earth ?   The answer is:  NO !   I have already given many free, pricy, gifts to those I care for and love so much, close relatives and friends.   My Mom has done the same sweet thing and cared for her children very, very well, with much love and kindness !!   I love my Mom very much, albeit she is still not a Believer,  yet.   I have tried to witness and teach her for so many years,  but now it's really between her and God.    I still talk to her about every other day on the phone, and she is very old in years,  but she still loves and cares for me, and knows me.    And I never try to push or shove things down another person's throat or lean on them.  The Bible tells me that I should preach and teach with kindness, gentleness, and deep respect.   All I can do is try, and the Holy Spirit guides me and motivates me, where ever I go/ travel.    I had the honor and delight to lead 2-- RN's at St. Mary's hospital in Green Bay, Wisconsin, to the Lord and Salvation [with the help of the Holy Spirit, of course], and a few other's in my Rehab place in Crystal Falls, MI., plus many CNA's [Certified Nurses Aids], and many, many others in my lifetime !!   I figure that is the only reason that God has kept me alive so long, and now I am age 67.   God sees the heart, and the H.S. motivates me, a very imperfect human being, a sinner man, to do His Will, to continue my duty, my task, my holy commission !

I get depressed, stressed out, lonely to the point of tears, upset at my present circumstances,  especially now in the month of hot miserable August, 2016,  but God gives me the strength to carry on.   And God will also Judge those who hurt, harm and degrade me, with words and actions.    If I am truly one of God's many servants,  that will come true.   PTL, means:  "   Praise the Lord."

I love my dog,  but he sits down/  lays down near me and then passes gas !    It's enough to kill a strong man..... Ha!  

Well, yesterday I THOUGHT that my doctor's appointment was scheduled so I prepared and drove there to the Iron Mtn., VAMC - hospital, only to find out that I was a day early.   So today is the correct time I need to go.   It is cloudy and humid outside so I have the A/C on with a fan.   I count myself very fortunate to have an Air Conditioning unit/ machine in my house to cool me off !    I know that God has blessed me in a large way.   Please send your prayer my way.

Warm Regards,
Tommy   Schuckman

My present dog looks very much like this one, my past Rotty male.

A great Watch/ guard dog !

Meltdown: What a Nuclear Power Disaster Could Mean to the Electrical Grid
Posted: 10 Aug 2016 10:42 AM PDT
Close your eyes and picture the future 50 years from now. Perhaps you’re imagining hover cars, teleportation or even bionic technology? No matter what your vision is for the cities of the future, they’ll most likely be run on nuclear power.
For years, nuclear power has been expanding and we’re constantly being reassured of its safety and security. However, many people are unaware of the threats nuclear power stations could be facing from both mankind and Mother Nature. Today, we’ll be discussing a June 2015 report from the American Leadership & Policy Foundation entitled, Electromagnetic Pulse and Space Weather and the Strategic Threat to America’s Nuclear Power Stations.
Before we get too far into the specific report details of the threats these stations may be facing, let’s first examine some of the history behind nuclear power stations.

The World of Tomorrow

While the first nuclear power station began operating in 1954, research and experiments on nuclear power date back to the early 1930’s with Ernest Rutherford’s discovery of the power created by splitting lithium atoms. The early 1950’s saw a race between nations to bring nuclear power to life as the United States, USSR, United Kingdom and Canada all rushed to harness the power of the atom.
In the United States, the 1954 Amendments to the Atomic Energy Act allowed declassification of reactor technology to encourage development in the private sector. In the end, the first operating reactor was in Obinsk, Russia and provided 5 megawatts of electricity to a power grid. The next thirty years would see massive developments in nuclear power, with stations producing under 1 gigawatt, all the way up to 300.

Disasters Strike

On March 28, 1979 a nuclear power station in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania experienced a partial meltdown after failures in the non-nuclear secondary system and a stuck-open relief valve allowed large amounts of reactor coolant to escape. The accident became known as the Three Mile Island accident. In addition to the mechanical issues, training failures within the staff meant they weren’t able to recognize the issue and in one instance, a hidden indicator light caused an operator to manually override an emergency cooling system.
April 26, 1986 saw the worst nuclear accident in history at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Pripyat, Ukraine. An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, spreading over the USSR and Europe. 31 people died during the accident itself and the long-term effects of the incident are still unknown to this day.

Nuclear Power Today

While previous nuclear disasters created numerous regulations and safety concerns, the growth of nuclear power stations has climbed and there are currently 438 power stations in 31 countries. These 438 stations provide roughly 10% of the world’s power and approximately 1/4 of the stations are located in 30 U.S. States.
To protect public health and safety, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission was created in 1975 and most of the regulations followed by power stations within the United States come from the NRC. Despite their responsibilities, the NRC is behind the times when it comes to updated regulations, many of which remain unchanged since the 1980’s.
This brings us back to the recent report from the American Leadership & Policy Foundation, outlining their concerns of the vulnerabilities nuclear power stations across the U.S. could face from both electromagnetic pulse and space weather.

Electromagnetic Pulses

While it may sound like it comes straight out of a Tom Clancy novel, Electromagnetic Pulses (EMPs) are a very real threat we face today. These pulses can be generated through a nuclear explosion and are comprised of three phases. The first phase, HEMP, is an electromagnetic signal generated by a nuclear burst detonated high above the Earth – generally above the atmosphere. These are fast, narrow pulses that are considered one of the more devastating EMP effects on sensitive electronics, due to their speed and disruptive characteristics.
Phase 2 of an EMP is known as an Intermediate Time Hemp and these signals are similar to lightning in the way they interact with electronic devices. Common surge protectors can sometimes enable an electronic device to withstand these signals, as they’re not as devastating as Phase 1 signals. The final phase of an EMP is known as a Late Time Hemp or magnetohydrodynamic (MHD). These signals can actually be found in nature through events known as Geomagnetic Disturbances (GMD).
While EMPs don’t pose a direct threat to the human body, they will severely damage electronic components, including circuit boards and power transformers found throughout electrical grids. Think back to the last time your power was out and how crippling it can be. Imagine a permanent outage across a large area and you can understand why an EMP pulse could be extremely devastating.

Space Weather

In addition to the manmade EMPs that would be produced from an exploding nuclear device, studies have shown that solar flares and other space weather events can create similar pulses that could mimic the effects of a manmade EMP. These pulses can develop from Geomagnetic Storms, where energy pulses race down geomagnetic lines of the Earth.
While these pulses are similar to the weaker third phase of an EMP, they can encompass much more area due to the size of the solar storm. In addition, these pulses can last much longer than a manmade EMP, allowing the pulses more time to damage electronics, including power grids.

What This Means for Nuclear Power

Scientists and those at the American Leadership & Policy Foundation are concerned with not only the implications of EMPs and Space Weather on the power grid, but the impact it could have on nuclear power facilities. Our entire nation’s infrastructure is built on our electric grid and a failure at any level would be devastating to public health and safety.
In addition to the devastation of the electrical grid, additional failures at nuclear power plants could result in meltdowns across the nation. A large amount of emergency systems and monitoring equipment at these stations include delicate electronics that would be devastated by an EMP. While both the White House and Congress claim that threats to U.S. Infrastructure and society are a top priority, EMP and Space Weather has been ignored by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The NRC continues to base its policy on this issue on an obsolete 1982 study they conducted.
This recent report seeks to shed light on the vulnerabilities surrounding both power stations and the electrical grids nationwide and we encourage you to read the report in its entirety, sharing as you see fit.
