Nicotine is MORE addicting than heroin or cocaine – Here’s why ..

two side brain (2)

On the right side of your brain, you’ve got the ability and functions for art, creativity, imagination, intuition, insight, holistic thoughts, music awareness, and of course, left hand control. Then, on the left side of your brain, you’ve got the abilities and functions to develop analytical thought, logic, reasoning, language, science and math, writing, and of course, right hand control. Which hand do you smoke with? Drive with? Brush your teeth with? Which side controls your emotions about life, and very importantly, which side will give you the drive and willpower to quit smoking nicotine? It’s possibly the most addictive drug on the planet as far as your brain is concerned.

Shocking Research from 2003: ‘Dopaminergic Neurons’

Researchers at the University of Chicago found that the nicotine in cigarettes doesn’t just stimulate the brain’s reward system, but alters the balance of inputs from two kinds of neurons that regulate reward system activity – and that makes the pleasure of smoking last longer. In your brain – in your VTA (ventral tegmental area) – you have reward system neurons (dopaminergic neurons) that trigger the release of dopamine in another nearby region of your brain. Nicotine actually ATTACHES to these neurons and they increase their ACTIVITY. This floods your nucleus accumbens (NAc). That’s when you feel the pleasure, and your brain creates the DISPOSITION for that situation, whether it’s drinking water, eating chocolate or lighting up a smoke.

That’s why addictions can be good or bad. You could actually be addicted to eating right, exercising and meditating, if you reinforce positive feelings with organic supplements, Superfoods and clear thinking. Think about it. The research also revealed that nicotine attachment only stimulates specific neurons for a few minutes, while dopamine levels in the nucleus remain elevated for MUCH LONGER. So when someone tries to quit smoking, their brain will be searching for those rewards for extended periods of time throughout the day, unless they can find some other way to replenish their nutrient base, and the right foods that stimulate dopamine production, like cabbage and mucuna.

Experiment: VTA cells in rats exposed to nicotine for 10 minutes

How long does the average person take to smoke a cigarette? About ten minutes. How long does it take ammonia-treated nicotine, which is in virtually all commercial and domestic cigarettes, to reach the human brain? About three seconds. Scientists found that when they measured electrical properties of the brain tissue of rats exposed to nicotine, BOTH “pacemaker” neurons were affected – the GABA producing cells and glutamate producing cells – where in the latter the brief nicotine application induced a condition known as LONG-TERM POTENTIATION.

This explains why the brain activity occurs at a high-level for an extended period of time, beyond the nicotine-attachment phase, when GABA transmission decreases.

Excitatory signals promote addiction for the brain’s reward system

Dr. McGehee, the lead researcher testing nicotine effects on rat brains, comes to this conclusion: “It would be difficult to design a better drug to promote addiction.” Nicotine has a combination effect of INCREASING dopamine release while DECREASING inhibitory GABA response. The artificially-induced reward of nicotine is therefore amplified as is the addiction, and THAT is why nicotine is now considered the most addicting drug in the world. It’s not cocaine or heroin or morphine or viagra or xanax or oxycodone or percocet – it’s nicotine.

You’re on a drug-induced emotional roller coaster, manipulated by cigarette manufacturers, to make you their customer for life. It’s affecting your motivation, creativity, deep thinking, attentiveness, learning and relaxation, and in the worst of ways.

The brain-effect differences between nicotine, cocaine, heroin, morphine …

Dopamine is essential for survival, as it has been involved in so many functions including motivation, learning and memorization, since the beginning of time. Dopamine is a key element that identifies natural rewards and is involved in the UNCONSCIOUS memorizing of the signs associated with these rewards. Cocaine is different than nicotine, in that cocaine increases the dopamine in the synapses. Ecstasy (a powerful stimulant and hallucinogen) increases serotonin. Alcohol blocks the natural neuro-mediator (NMDA) receptors. Morphine binds to receptors for endorphin (the brain’s natural morphine production). Nicotine binds to the receptors for what is called acetylcholine.

Are you wondering now about your motivation, sex drive, attitude, senseless fears, senseless worrying, sleepless nights, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety and loss of drive? The experience of cigarette nicotine reduces more and more over time as you build up tolerance and experience reduced pleasure from it. What now? Quit smoking and do it without medication or nicotine replacement programs! When your receptors become functional again – within days – you will replace any cravings with Superfoods that naturally raise dopamine and serotonin levels.

Bottom Line: Your two-sided brain needs the right food and herbal supplements right now. It’s time to exit nicotine and enter the health enthusiasts world. Become one of us, starting now. Quit cigarettes and do it naturally. Here’s how. Watch the trailer presented by Mike Adams for the natural method to quitting cigarettes within 14 days. It’s a simple 60-MINUTE COURSE that’s sweeping the nation.

Hospitals giving rise to nuclear waste as needless CT scans and medical imaging become prevalent

flash gordon brain scan (2)

 Brain scans are archaic and dangerous:

Hospitals in the U.S. are giving rise to more and more nuclear waste through the increased use of radioactive materials. Take, for example, cobalt and powdered cesium. Cobalt is used to kill diseased tissues of brain while cesium capsules are implanted beside tumors in order to kill cancerous cells. The radiation from both these substances is used to sterilize medical instruments. This unchecked usage of radioactive elements in hospitals is giving rise to huge quantities of radioactive waste. But the problem is that not enough is being done to contain the effects of this waste, reports Natural News.

http://www.naturalnews.com/025711.html#ixzz2KbYuSNwg

 

Modern methods of treatment are also playing an important role in exposing people to needless radiation. National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement in its report has clearly stated that the exposure of common people to radiations has increased by 600 percent in the last 30 years. It has also stated that the prevalence of CT scans and other medical imaging processes are largely responsible for such a huge leap in the number of those exposed to radiation. It is also reported that undergoing two or three CT scans exposes the body to the level of radiation that a man receives standing a few miles away from a nuclear bomb explosion.

http://www.naturalnews.com/025767_Radiation_Ct_Scans.html#ixzz2KbWTn2LZ

 

According to Natural News, children are the worst sufferers of such a medical practice. A study titled Identifying children at very low risk of clinically important blunt abdominal injuries has stated that most of the time, children are needlessly taken through a CT scan process by doctors. The study was conducted on over 12,000 children from all over the U.S. and it concluded that a vast majority of children who underwent CT scans were subjected to it completely unnecessarily. This unnecessary exposure to radiation aggravates the chances of getting infected with cancer in the latter part of life.

Superfood for Superbugs, natural medicine for toxic vaccines – Natural News offers a holistic solution

Have you heard of the new killer on the block? Let’s hear from them – the SUPERBUGS! Another uniquely fatal side effect of RoundUp – a product by our very own Big Pharma!

Thanks to Mike Adams who has been covering the issue in Natural News, extensively at that – we can at least say that we are aware of the ways to deal with these creatures which were once nothing more than harmless rootworm beetles. These insects have turned into something dangerous after being fed with abundant doses of Monsanto’s Roundup. Now, they are feeding on the GMOs and making them even more poisonous (as if the original toxicity wasn’t enough). The ultimate result is something like this – the bugs are spreading the infection that they have been sprayed with and these are finding their way into the systems of those who are feeding on GMO soy and corn and attacking your cells, your DNA, your blood-brain barrier, your heart, your liver, your central nervous system, causing you imbalance, anxiety, nutrient deficiency and lowered immunity.

Keep eating GMO and the U.S. will give you a GMO VACCINE for your GMO disease and make things worse!

Hospital nurses, doctors and even dentists have been caught re-using needles, and surgeons have been sued for leaving tools inside the body of their patients. But did you know pesticides kill more people than cigarettes and alcohol combined? Yes, it’s true. And why is that? Because you can’t “wash off” this kind of pesticide. You can’t wash off pesticide, or insecticide, or herbicide, when it’s growing inside the plant, the crop, the vegetable, the fruit. You can’t wash off GMO, that’s why it’s called genetically modified. The genes are modified in a lab. Nature’s food is modified with toxic bug killer, and beetle killer, and weed killer.

Would you spray some RoundUp weed killer on your tongue out of a dare? No way. But you eat RoundUp when you eat GM corn and GM soy. And what about injecting some pesticide or insecticide in your arm? You’d probably die instantly. But there’s MSG in flu shots and vaccines. Did you know MSG is GMO? Yes. It is. It’s genetically modified in labs. Should you check with the CDC now, to see how many vaccines and flu shots include MSG? I already checked. Here’s the link for you:

MSG (monosodium glutamate): When injected becomes a neurotoxin, causing CNS disorders and brain damage in children.

If you especially enjoy being lied to, visit vaccinateyourbaby.org, where they tell you formaldehyde is safe because it is “present in the environment and is a byproduct of metabolism, so it is already present in the human body.” They also inform you that aluminum is good for you, because “Aluminum is also commonly found in food, water, infant formula and even breast milk.” Hey, if it’s in the environment, it must be safe to inject into your veins (so why not use snake venom, bleach, and plutonium?).

The “Food Chambers” of the 2013 Cancer Holocaust in America

Every ten years, cancer kills about 6 million people in America, that’s close the number of Jews Hitler killed in the Holocaust. Instead of gas chambers, we have “food chambers” and people are walking into them on a daily basis and “breathing” in the poison.

Natural News reports: “Zyklon B is a very effective chemical for killing humans. The trick is getting the victims to inhale it. Since most people won’t voluntarily inhale Zyklon B gas, you have to use some means of force to march them into chambers where the “gas” is released … ”

One blog keeps up with the EVIL-LUTION of USA food and medicine

Someone has to keep a close eye on this pioneer and master of reporting the living truth of natural news and health reports. Mike Adams has been at it for over a decade, with an on line news site with over a million followers. How does he do it? How does he write thousands and thousands of words every week that expose the core truth about health and wellness? What makes him tick? Natural News Watch knows! Get the inside scoop by following this blog site about the one and onlyHealth Ranger – the fearless Mike Adams.

By now, nearly all informed people recognize that Monsanto is widely regarded as  the most evil corporation on our planet. But what, exactly, makes Monsanto so  evil? Why is Monsanto worse than a pharmaceutical company, a pesticide company  or even a weapons manufacturer?
The answer to this question is found in  probing the virtue of the corporation in question. As virtuous people, we  expect corporations to act with a sense of fundamental human decency. We expect  them to behave within the boundaries of respecting human life, honest business  practices and reliable science. We (naively) wish that corporations would act  like decent human beings.
But they don’t. In their quest for  profit at any cost, they violate the basic tenets of virtue. They betray  humanity. They destroy life. They malign Mother Nature herself, and in doing so,  they threaten the very future of sustainable life on our planet.
Here, I  unravel the fundamental “violations of virtue” that Monsanto practices on a  daily basis. It is these things, I think you’ll agree, that make Monsanto a  despicable corporate entity and a threat to all humankind.

Corporate greed over service to humanity

Monsanto’s actions are designed  to maximize its corporate profits, not to serve the people. Its entire  seed-and-herbicide business model is designed to trap farmers in a system of  economic dependence… to turn farmers into indentured servantswho can  never return to traditional farming after their soil has been destroyed with  Roundup.

Death over life

Monsanto’s products cause death. They compromise and  violate life. Monsanto’s GM corn grown a toxic chemical right inside each and  every corn kernel. This corn is what is subsequently eaten by humans.
Rats  fed this corn grew horrifying cancer tumors as shown here:

Heart Specialists don’t tell you this: Probiotics that target bad cholesterol may prevent cardiac problems

Experts and health scientists have always advocated for the consumption of good bacteria by eating yogurt and other fermented foods or probiotic supplements. These bacteria help maintain sound internal health especially in the gastrointestinal tract. Researchers have recently announced that a probiotic supplement can also work to prevent cardiac problems to a large extent. Mitchell L. Jones, who happens to be the lead author of the study and at the same time a research assistant in medicine at McGill University in Montreal, has opined that two doses of a probiotics daily do in fact reduce cholesterol count in the blood thus curtailing the risk of suffering  a stroke.

http://www.naturalnews.com/037884_probiotics_bad_cholesterol_heart_disease.html#ixzz2Bf2sqOA6

As Natural News reports, this study, which concurs with American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2012, is going to add new dimensions to the global health industry. The study has been conducted by involving a double blind study in humans and has shown that these probiotics can significantly reduce cholesterol levels in the human body without any sort of side effect. The study included 127 adult subjects with high levels of cholesterol. About half of them were given probiotics twice a day and the remaining   took placebo capsules. After two months, those taking probiotics had 11.6 percent lower levels of LDL than those who had been taking placebos. The cholesterol esters also dropped by 6.3 percent and the cholesterol ester saturated fatty acids were also reduced by nearly nine percent in people consuming probiotics.

Natural News had previously reported that an imbalance between the number of good and bad bacteria in the intestinal tract might also lead to Type II diabetes. The probiotics might also be helpful in treating and curing these diseases. Moreover, the probiotics are also useful in building the immunity against flu virus and can even provide effective treatment for agonizing bowel disorders.
