As we age, calcium deposits tend to accumulate in our soft tissues. Doctors call it Extra-skeletal calcification. This means that the calcium that is supposed to be deposited in your bones is being lodged in your soft tissues where is does not belong. The condition can manifest itself in many ways: Heart disease, cancer, wrinkled skin, arthritis, kidney stones, osteoporosis, dental problems, bone spurs, senility, cataracts and many other health problems. Fortunately, there are many proven techniques to combat soft-tissue calcification. By making a few simple changes in your diet and lifestyle, you can prevent and reverse what is commonly called the calcium bomb. For more information, please visit the authors website at:

Familiarity with Western medicine, Asian doctors, and chiropractors have given me insight about medicine and health care is the U.S. Learning different philosophies and procedures made me think about health and how human bodies function. The Happy Planet index ( about happiness worldwide implies there are major problems in the U.S. In Heal America, Heal Yourself, I focus on personal habits and the American health care system, what we can do about it, and how we can secure our own good health though personal actions and proactive care. We need to abandon the traditional mindset about our health and develop a better health insurance system. The book considers pandemic medical crises worldwide, which include the rapid increase of cancer, thyroid conditions, diabetes, and other infectious diseases such as tuberculosis. I point out what we can do to prevent and even reverse these conditions, as well as how to change the American health insurance system. Since I am originally from an Asian country, I see the major differences in the health insurance system and medical costs in the U.S. as excessive and frequently difficult to access.

Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiencies Who’s at Risk – Why – What Can Be Done -- Strict Vegans -- Newborns of Strict Vegans -- The Elderly -- Dialysis Patients -- Pregnant Women Are you or any of your loved ones among the above groups? If so, then you/they are in danger of suffering the effects of a serious vitamin B12 deficiency. These “effects” can take various forms such as anemia where you feel tired all the time and that your strength has absolutely vanished to real neurological damage as in newborn babies of strict vegan mothers to mental disorders in the elderly mimicking Alzheimer’s disease. Without proper testing, even doctors can be fooled into providing inaccurate diagnoses. Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiencies is written in straight-forward, easy-to-understand language so anyone with an interest in the subject matter can quickly grasp the concepts. However, self-diagnosis and treatment is highly discouraged. To peek inside the book and read the first few pages, scroll up the page and click on the book’s cover (different excerpt below).

Vitamin B12 Deficiency: Neurological Symptoms One of the most important functions of vitamin B12 in the body is helping to form the protective coating, called the myelin sheath (i.e. Schwann cells), around the nerves. They make the nerve fiber in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) look like a string of pearls. Schwann cells are one of two supporting cells in the PNS. The other is called a satellite cell and surrounds cell bodies within the ganglia (cell bodies that lie along the nerves in the PNS). It is believed that both types of supporting cells provide insulation for the electrical current that flows through the nerves, but their function is still largely unknown. When vitamin B12 is deficient, this protective covering does not develop properly. One of the conditions caused by B12 deficiency is neuropathy in the feet and lower limbs. The definition of neuropathy is: Any disease of nervous tissue, but particularly a degenerative disease of nerves. Accompanying symptoms include: -- tingling -- numbness -- loss of sensation (heat/cold) -- and sometimes a burning sensation Since vitamin B12 can be stored in the liver for between 3 – 5 years to provide tiny amounts for the body’s use, the symptoms of deficiency can take a long time before becoming noticeable. Also, the pernicious anemia that also accompanies B12 deficiency can be hidden by the ingestion of folic acid. If the anemia is hidden and the deficiency symptoms are not treated, permanent neurological damage occurs. --End of Excerpt –

With a masterful grasp of what was at stake in World War II, STAN POLLACK, in his third novel, has effectively recreated a time on the brink of being forgotten. These were the most dramatic years of the Twentieth Century (1933-45) when the worlds nations descended reluctantly into a tumultuous war. HOW HITLER REALLY LOST THE WAR The story succeeds in that tricky business of combining true history with believable fictional actors injecting themselves onto the world stage. The cast of characters teems not only with famous personalities of the time, but ordinary fictional figures whose deeds were never recorded into history books.

Since 1941, Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) has been recognized as the most authoritative source of information on nutrient levels for healthy people. Since publication of the 10th edition in 1989, there has been rising awareness of the impact of nutrition on chronic disease. In light of new research findings and a growing public focus on nutrition and health, the expert panel responsible for formulation RDAs reviewed and expanded its approach--the result: Dietary Reference Intakes. This new series of references greatly extends the scope and application of previous nutrient guidelines. For each nutrient the book presents what is known about how the nutrient functions in the human body, what the best method is to determine its requirements, which factors (caffeine or exercise, for example) may affect how it works, and how the nutrient may be related to chronic disease. This volume of the series presents information about thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B12, pantothenic acid, biotin, and choline. Based on analysis of nutrient metabolism in humans and data on intakes in the U.S. population, the committee recommends intakes for each age group--from the first days of life through childhood, sexual maturity, midlife, and the later years. Recommendations for pregnancy and lactation also are made, and the book identifies when intake of a nutrient may be too much. Representing a new paradigm for the nutrition community, Dietary Reference Intakes encompasses: Estimated Average Requirements (EARs). These are used to set Recommended Dietary Allowances. Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs). Intakes that meet the RDA are likely to meet the nutrient requirement of nearly all individuals in a life-stage and gender group. Adequate Intakes (AIs). These are used instead of RDAs when an EAR cannot be calculated. Both the RDA and the AI may be used as goals for individual intake. Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (ULs). Intakes below the UL are unlikely to pose risks of adverse health effects in healthy people. This new framework encompasses both essential nutrients and other food components thought to pay a role in health, such as dietary fiber. It incorporates functional endpoints and examines the relationship between dose and response in determining adequacy and the hazards of excess intake for each nutrient.
