Hope this finds you fit and well.

I read yet again this week how a positive attitude and humour can have remarkable health benefits and on the other hand stress has extremely negative effects on your health. I maintain a separate email list of people with whom I exchange jokes but I thought if it's OK with you I will include one or two each week in here. Oh, and if you want to receive more, drop me an email and I will add your email address to my jokes list.

More and more over the last 10 years I have become aware that the two main political parties apparently give a choice but in reality or two sides of the same coin. I have been wishing this last month that there was an alternative political party. One that was not another tool of the power elite. One that was genuinely for the "man in the street", you and me. Well, seems like I got my wish! Check out the Australian Sovereignty Party at http://www.sovereigntyparty.org.au/the-party.html.

Enjoy this week's selection of information morsels and have a great week!

To Get Data On Cancer Visit Tahmoor

Carmella Walker will be giving a talk at Contours, Strathfield Rd Tahmoor at 7:00pm next week. I think it's on Thursday the 5th but give her a call on 4681 8334 to confirm and book.

Charlotte Gerson, daughter of Max Gerson

Between the time in 1944 Dr. Max Gerson presented to the US Congress patients he had cured of cancer, until 1997, the Pharmceutical\Medical cartel have suppressed the truth about the dietary cause of cancer and killed more people than Hitler and Stalin combined.

I am told they no longer teach breathing techniques in pre-natal classes.

Just insanity to get more girls to take drugs during childbirth.
If you know anyone who is pregnant, suggest they get a qualified mid-wife to teach them how to breathe through contractions.

If you know anyone with Dementia or Alzheimer's Disease...

Recent clinical trials on a natural flower extract establish that can halt dementia and rejuvenate cognitive function.

This extract derived from the snowdrop, daffodil and spider lily has been traditionally used in Eastern Europe to treat a variety of ailments.

But latest research has shown its greatest promise lies with its beneficial effects for people suffering Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Researchers found that this natural extract works by blocking the action of cholinesterase - allowing for greater levels of acetylcholine – and boosts the production of new acetylcholine neurotransmitters in the brain.

And that means it has powerful potential to slow cognitive decline to a virtual standstill.


When a food product is 99 percent pure MSG it is called “monosodium glutamate” by the FDA and must be labeled as such. However, when a food product contains less than 99 percent MSG, the FDA doesn’t require that the MSG be identified. So it often appears on labels in various disguised forms, such as “hydrolyzed vegetable protein,” “spices” and “natural flavoring.” Here’s a quick list of potentially suspect ingredients to watch for (when in doubt, call the manufacturer to inquire).

* Ingredients that may contain 30 to 60 percent MSG: hydrolyzed vegetable protein; hydrolyzed protein; hydrolyzed plant protein; plant protein extract; sodium caseinate; calcium caseinate; yeast extract; textured protein; autolyzed yeast; hydrolyzed oat flour; Accent.

* Ingredients that may contain 12 to 40 percent MSG: malt extract; malt flavoring; bouillon; broth; stock; natural flavoring; natural beef or chicken flavoring; seasoning; spices.

* Ingredients that may contain some MSG: carrageenan; enzymes; soy protein concentrate; soy protein isolate; whey protein concentrate; some soy milk.

Best Joke In The World - Male Perspective

Two women were sitting silently together, minding their own business.

Best Joke In The World - Fenale Perspective

A group of men were sitting around openly sharing their feelings.

Just in Case You Get the Two Mixed Up



You spend most of your time in a 10 X 10 cell

You spend most of your time in an 6X6 cubicle

You get three meals a day, fully paid for

You get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it

For good behavior, you get time off

For good behavior, you get more work

The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you

You must carry a security card and open all the doors yourself

You can watch TV and play games

You could get fired for watching TV and playing games

You get your own toilet

You have to share the toilet with people who pee on the seat

They allow your family and friends to visit

You aren't even supposed to speak to your family

All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required

You must pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners

You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out

You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars

You must deal with sadistic wardens

They're called 'managers'

Thinking of Going Solar?

Choice recently asked the Alternative Technology Association to calculate approximate "payback times" for a 1.5kW solar system in each state. The verdict is anything from five to forty-five years, depending on where you live.
