.....Raw Chshews...one of my favorite and now I know why.

After having cancer some 37 years ago, I have always loved almonds...but I have also fallen in love with Cashews..  Here is some great info concerning my latest addiction...RAW Cashews!!!  
 
Nutritional  Benefits of Raw Cashews
  
Cashews are actually the seed of a fruit called the cashew apple . Cashews are never sold in the shell because the shells contain a caustic resin. Raw cashews can be eaten as a snack or tossed into salads. 
.
BASIC NUTRITION
One oz. of raw cashews, approximately 28 g, contains 157 calories. In a 1-oz. serving, there are approximately 5 g of protein and 9 g of carbohydrates, of which 1 g is fiber. One oz. of cashews has 12 g of fat, including 2.2 g of saturated fat, 6.7 g of monounsaturated fat and 2.2 g of polyunsaturated fat. Most of this fat is in the form of heart-healthy oleic acid. The fat content also includes 2,179 mg of omega-6 and 17.4 mg ofomega-3 fatty acids . Cashews are a cholesterol-free food and are low in sodium, containing only 3 mg per 1-oz. serving.

MICRONUTRIENTS
Cashews are high in magnesium, with 83 mg in 1 oz., about 20 percent of the daily recommended intake. Other minerals in raw cashews include iron, potassium, phosphorus, manganese, calcium, copper, selenium and zinc. Vitamins in raw cashews include vitamins K, B6 and E, pantothenic acid, folate, niacin and thiamin.

PHYTOCHEMICALS
Raw cashews are high in phytosterols, which lower LDL cholesterol and may help prevent cancer. The antioxidant carotenoids beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin are present in cashews. Cashews also contain phenols including phenolic acids, flavonoids and stilbenes. Proanthocyanidins in cashews provide further antioxidant activity.


HEALTH BENEFITS
Cashews, along with other nuts, help provide protection against coronary heart disease, diabetes and gallstones. Nut consumption two or more times a week is also linked to a reduced risk of weight gain, explains World's Healthiest Foods. The monounsaturated fat oleic acid found in cashews lowers blood triglyceride levels and boosts heart health. The high antioxidant levels in cashews may be protective against a wide range of diseases, including cancer, stroke, heart disease and immune disorders.

MILK does NOT do a BODY good.

 Here is some great information about Milk...as per Dr. Kradjian, 
MILK does NOT do a BODY good..
Please read and decide for yourself.
 It has been my understanding for many years now, that cows milk is not for human consumption, but rather..for a calf to fatten up to 400lbs in less that a year..
Please click on the link to read the article in full.  
I have only put pieces in below.

THE MILK LETTER : A MESSAGE TO MY PATIENTS
Robert M. Kradjian, MD
Breast Surgery Chief Division of General Surgery,
Seton Medical Centre #302 - 1800 Sullivan Ave.
Daly City, CA 94015 USA

"MILK" Just the word itself sounds comforting! "How about a nice cup of milk?" 
The last time you heard that question it was from someone who
cared for you--and you appreciated their effort.

The entire matter of food and especially that of milk is surrounded with 
emotional and cultural importance. Milk was our very first food. If we
were fortunate it was our mother's milk. A loving link, given and taken. 
It was the only path to survival. If not mother's milk it was cow's milk
or soy milk "formula"--rarely it was goat, camel or water buffalo milk.

 SUMMARY
To my thinking, there is only one valid reason to drink milk or use milk
products. That is just because we simply want to. Because we like it and
because it has become a part of our culture. Because we have become
accustomed to its taste and texture. Because we like the way it slides
down our throat. Because our parents did the very best they could for us
and provided milk in our earliest training and conditioning. They taught
us to like it. And then probably the very best reason is ice cream! I've
heard it described "to die for".

I had one patient who did exactly that. He had no obvious vices. He
didn't smoke or drink, he didn't eat meat, his diet and lifestyle was
nearly a perfectly health promoting one; but he had a passion. You
guessed it, he loved rich ice cream. A pint of the richest would be a
lean day's ration for him. On many occasions he would eat an entire
quart -and yes there were some cookies and other pastries. Good ice
cream deserves this after all. He seemed to be in good health despite
some expected "middle age spread" when he had a devastating stroke which
left him paralyzed, miserable and helpless, and he had additional
strokes and died several years later never having left a hospital or
rehabilitation unit. Was he old? I don't think so. He was in his 50s.

So don't drink milk for health. ................

Most of the people on this planet live very healthfully without cows' milk. 
You can too.

It will be difficult to change; we've been conditioned since childhood to think 
of milk as "nature's most perfect food." I'll guarantee you
that it will be safe, improve your health and it won't cost anything.
What can you lose?

Body Wise International to Pay over $3.5 Million to Settle Federal and State Deceptive Advertising Charges for “AG-Immune” Dietary Supplement

Did you know....  Body Wise Intl. was fined $3.5 million....Why?  Well... for the reasons listed below.  http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2005/01/bodywise.shtm 


This is what one Body Wise user wrote....

Allergies
I couldn’t be more excited about AG-Immune™! My daughter has had severe allergies since she was six months old. . . . I often had to miss work to care for her. Then Body Wise introduced AG-Immune and I began adding two capsules a day to her applesauce. I couldn’t believe the difference in her! No more sneezing, no more runny nose, and now she can play outside almost all day.”
(A “Consumer Notice” identical to that set forth in Paragraph 12(m)
appears in small print at the bottom of the page). (Exhibit E-2)
If you go to this link, you will see more claims just like this one.

I have included a few more things concerning the fine...  When you search for information on Body Wise, you will never find anything of a negative nature but this lawsuit.  

Isn't it funny....Someone says they had great results on Body Wise and the owner of Body Wise gets taken to court for having a product that people love and a product that works!

24 years of excellent products, 24 years of integrity, 24 years of people getting results...but cannot talk about it...

For me...16 years of products that work...  Healthy Lifestyle, Daily Exercise, plenty of water and Body Wise...  My choice for LIFE!

For Release: January 18, 2005
Defendant Body Wise and its consultants recommend that consumers seeking specific information about the use and benefits of AG-Immune in the treatment, cure or mitigation of a wide variety of serious diseases or conditions, including weakened immune function, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, candida albicans, arthritis and rheumatism, infection, hepatitis C, colds and flu, sinusitis, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, lupus, and cancer, purchase these materials from defendant Body Wise or its consultants. Information on how to order these materials is also available on Defendant Body Wise’s Internet web site,
www.bodywise.com.

MAKE BODY WISE YOUR CHOICE FOR LIFE!!  
and...MAKE IT YOUR CHOICE FOR THE PEOPLE 
YOU LOVE!

Questions and Answers about AIE10
What scientific methods are used to determine the presence of immunoactive molecules in Ai/E¹º that support cytokine pathways?
This is accomplished through a combination of laboratory tests that include electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, tissue cultures, and molecular function analysis.

What specific clinical measurement has been applied to such extracts?
Clinical and laboratory studies are available for download. See Research page.

What is an immune modulator?
Immune Modulation is a natural and effective regulated immune response that involves many aspects and components of the immune system through recognition, response, feedback and memory. This is an ordinary activity of healthy immune function.

How does "Modulation" differ from "Stimulation?"
There is a significant distinction between stimulating and modulating. Modulation is a natural process. That is not necessarily true of stimulation. Stimulation typically causes some portion of the immune system to experience a functional increase or "spike" for a short period of time. This increase is often followed by a reversal or balancing adjustment by the immune system to the old level or even lower. An immune modulator has the ability to both up-regulate, or down-regulate immune system activity as needed.

Should I take other nutritional supplements with Ai/E¹º or multiple products containing Ai/E¹º at the same time?
Certainly. Take whatever supplements you consider appropriate.  Ai/E¹º is not know to interfere with any other dietary supplement.

Can I take Ai/E¹º products for a long period of time?
There are now many people who have taken Ai/E¹º products continuously for many years with no reported ill effects or any apparent loss of immune support. Ai/E¹º is non-toxic and considered safe for life long consumption. Continued use appears to provide continued support.
