Soda and DNA  Sun Screen Myth  KLEINER'S KORNER  Heart Meditations

Drink Soda and Damage Your DNA


Dr. Mercola

May 29, 2007

Research from a British university suggests that sodium benzoate,

a common preservative found in many soft drinks, has the ability to

switch off vital parts of DNA.

This could eventually lead to diseases such as cirrhosis of

the liver and Parkinson's.


When a UK professor of molecular biology and biotechnology

tested the impact of sodium benzoate on living yeast cells, he

discovered that it was damaging important DNA in the cells' mitochondria.


> Mitochondria serve as the "power stations" for cells, and

> damage to them can lead to serious cell malfunctions associated with

> aging and age-related disease. The damage caused by sodium benzoate

was great enough to cause the mitochondria to stop functioning.


Sodium benzoate occurs naturally in berries in small

amounts, but is used in large quantities to prevent mold in soft

rinks such as Sprite, Diet Pepsi, Coca-Cola, and Dr Pepper.   It is

also added to pickles and sauces.

> Dr. Mercola's Comment:

> I am still shocked every time I reflect on the fact that

> the number one source of calories in America comes from soda.  To me it

> is an absolutely mind-boggling fact. Of course, all I have to do to

> knock my senses back to reality is go to a standard grocery store on a

The Sunscreen Myth: How sunscreen products actually promote cancer




More evidence the Bush Administration is using politics to interfere with science:

“The first U.S. surgeon general appointed by President George W. Bush accused the administration on Tuesday [July 10] of political interference and muzzling him on key issues like embryonic stem cell research. "Anything that doesn't fit into the political appointees' ideological, theological or political agenda is ignored, marginalized or simply buried," Dr. Richard Carmona, who served as the nation's top doctor from 2002 until 2006, told a House of Representatives committee,” quoting Reuters.

“A ten-year study comparing organic tomatoes with standard produce found that they had almost double the quantity of antioxidants called flavonoids which help to prevent high blood pressure and thus reduce the likelihood of heart disease and strokes.

Alyson Mitchell, a food chemist, who led the research at the University of California, believes that flavonoids can also help to stave off some forms of cancer and dementia.

She found that levels of quercetin and kaempferol, both flavonoids, were on average 79 and 97 per cent higher, respectively, in organic tomatoes. Her findings are due to be published in full in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry….

The team believes that the different levels of flavonoids in tomatoes are due to the absence of fertilisers in organic farming,” quoting UK’s Times. .

A. “…The incidence of the most deadly form of skin cancer, melanoma, is increasing faster than that of any other cancer, doubling every one or two decades in countries such as the US, UK and Australia. There's no doubt that more people exposing more skin to the sun more often is the underlying reason behind the huge rise since the 1950s. Yet when epidemiologists began to look at the effects of sunscreens in the 1990s, they found no evidence that these creams and lotions were reducing the impact of our love of sunshine by protecting us from melanoma.

How is this possible? While sunburn is mostly caused by the part of the ultraviolet spectrum known as UVB, there's growing evidence linking melanomas to UVA. Older sunscreens allowed people to stay out in the sun longer without burning but provided little protection against UVA, so they increased people's exposure to these wavelengths,” quoting The New Scientist.

“There is no such thing as 100 percent protection from the sun, the European Union's consumer chief warned holidaymakers on Monday and she banned the words "sunblock" and "100 percent sun protection" on sun cream.

Such labeling is misleading and contributes to thousands of deaths each year, Consumer Protection Commissioner Meglena Kuneva said,” quoting Reuters.

"A spoonful of dark chocolate may help blood pressure go down, according to a study published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The new research found that daily dark-chocolate consumption was associated with a drop in blood pressure. But before chocolate lovers rejoice, a caveat: The study authors recommend limiting daily dark-chocolate consumption to a small size. Think one Hershey's Kiss, not one entire candy bar," quoting Newsweek.

“Drinking wine can maintain heart health, prevent cancer and even settle a mean case of diarrhea. Research now shows it’s also good for your teeth and throat.

According to a new study, a cocktail of compounds found in both red and white wine fights germs that can cause dental plaque as well as sore throats.

‘Exposure to wine had a persistent antibacterial effect,’ the authors wrote in their study, detailed in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Prior to their research, the authors said the effects of wine against germs found in the mouth hadn’t been studied.

Red wines have stronger bacteria-fighting effects than white wine, although not by much. Curiously, the acidity and alcohol isn’t responsible for wine’s germ-fighting properties—instead, it’s a collection of organic (carbon-containing) compounds found in the drink,” quoting Live Science.

“The oldest ever recovered DNA samples have been collected from under more than a mile of Greenland ice, and their analysis suggests the island was much warmer during the last Ice Age than previously thought.

The DNA is proof that sometime between 450,000 and 800,000 years ago, much of Greenland was especially green and covered in a boreal forest that was home to alder, spruce and pine trees, as well as insects such as butterflies and beetles…
“We have shown for the first time that southern Greenland...was once very different to the Greenland we see today,” said study leader Eske Willerslev of the University of Copenhagen…

‘To get this site ice free you would’ve had to remove the ice cover from about the southern third of Greenland’” study team member Martin Sharp, a glaciologist at the University of Alberta, Canada, told LiveScience.

The findings, detailed in the July 6 issue of the journal Science, demonstrate how far the young field of ancient DNA research has come: scientists can now recreate an environment’s climate and ecology using only recovered DNA, without the need for fossils that might be absent or hard to reach,” quoting Live Science.

“Thousands of Argentines cheered and threw snowballs in the streets of Buenos Aires on Monday [July 9] as the capital's first major snowfall since 1918 spread a thin white mantle across the region.

Wet snow fell for hours in the Argentine capital, accumulating in a mushy but thin white layer late Monday, after freezing air from Antarctica collided with a moisture-laden low pressure system that blanketed higher elevations in western and central Argentina with snow...

Argentina's National Weather Service said it was the first major snow in Buenos Aires since June 22, 1918, though sleet or freezing rain have been periodically reported in decades since,” quoting the AP.

“A man searching for a cure for cancer discovered a way to make salt water - the world's most abundant resource - burn. This is a powerful burn that could easily power a combustion engine,” quoting You Tube.

”Eben Bayer grew up on a farm in Vermont learning the intricacies of mushroom harvesting with his father. Now the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute graduate is using that experience to create an organic insulation made from mushrooms.

More at home on a pizza, mushrooms certainly aren't a typical building material, but Bayer thought they just might work when given the assignment two years to create a sustainable insulation.

Combining his agricultural knowledge with colleague Gavin McIntyre's interest in sustainable technology, the two created their patented "Greensulate" formula, an organic, fire-retardant board made of water, flour, oyster mushroom spores and perlite, a mineral blend found in potting soil. They're hoping the invention will soon be part of the growing market for eco-friendly products,” quoting the AP.

"In the concrete jungle of Manhattan stands a paragon of green: the new Hearst Tower, rising from the original Hearst building’s historic facade.

Ninety percent of its steel is recycled. It uses 26 percent less energy and 10 percent less water than a conventional office building. Sensors detect when a room is empty and automatically turn off the lights and computers...

Hearst Tower is at the vanguard of a movement to cause as little ecological impact as possible in new construction.

In September, it became the first “green” office building in New York certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, a nonprofit organization that administers the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. Hearst Tower was given gold status, the second-highest award available," quoting MSNBC.

“Australia will create a wildlife corridor spanning the continent to allow animals and plants to flee the effects of global warming, scientists said on Monday [July 9].

The 2,800-kilometer (1,740 mile) climate "spine", approved by state and national governments, will link the country's entire east coast, from the snow-capped Australian Alps in the south to the tropical north - the distance from London to Romania.

‘A lot of that forest and vegetation spine is already there. But there are still blockages,’ David Lindenmayer, a professor of conservation biology, told Reuters of the plan,” quoting Reuters.

"In June 2001 I began to correspond with a reader of my website who said he was willing to share access to a promising new web technology, on the condition that I protect his identity. The person related that he had been a very senior programmer with a software company in the Pacific Northwest (you can guess which company, right?) and besides being a SQL ace, he was also heavily into linguistics and a language called Prolog, which is more like an artificial intelligence language than anything else...

The web bot technology apparently taps in to an area of preconscious awareness. It's here that you run into the ramifications of Dean Radin's work at the Boundary Institute and the work of the Princeton Global Consciousness Project - both of which Art has talked about on his show.

The Global Consciousness Project registered what appears to have been a disturbance in "the force" or the regularly orderly operation of life associated with 9/11:
link here
Supposed "random" numbers generated all over the world appeared to become less random immediately prior to 9/11.

The second point is contained in Dean Radin's paper at

("Time-reversed human experience: Experimental evidence and implications").

The mind-bending evidence in Radin's work is that in a laboratory, people begin to react to an event as early as 6-seconds before it takes place. In other words, if you are about to show someone a horribly grotesque picture of something, they will already be physically reacting to it before the picture actually becomes visible. Up to 6-seconds, or so, and in a lab! In quantum terms, Radin's work demonstrates that people are physically able to perceive 6-seconds into the future," quoting Urban Survival Weekly Report.

met in London to vote on the top ten images taken by the Hubble Telescope in its sixteen years in operation. They chose some beauties: the Cat’s Eye Nebula, the Sombrero Galaxy, the Hourglass Nebula. But conspicuously missing from their list was the Hubble Ultra Deep Field image. It is, I believe, the most incredible photograph ever taken.

In 2003, Hubble astronomers chose a random wedge of sky just below the constellation Orion and, during four hundred orbits of the Earth, over the course of several months, took a photograph with a million-second-long exposure. It was something like peering through an eight-foot soda straw with one big, superhuman eye at the same wedge of space for eleven straight nights.

What they found there was breathtaking: a shard of the early universe that contains a bewildering array of galaxies and pre-galactic lumps. Scrolling through it is eerily similar to peering at a drop of pond water through a microscope: one expects the galaxies to start squirming like paramecia. It bewilders and disorients; the dark patches swarm with questions. If you peered into just one of its black corners, took an Ultra Deep Field of the Ultra Deep Field, would you see as much all over again?

What the Ultra Deep Field image ultimately offers is a singular glimpse at ourselves. Like Copernicus’s On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres, it resets our understanding of who and what we are,” quoting Anthony Doerr in Orion Magazine.

“Astronomers have found evidence for the most distant galaxies ever detected. The galaxies are seen as they existed just 500 million years after the birth of the universe. Their light, traversing the cosmos for more than 13 billion years, was seen only because it was distorted in a natural "gravitational lens" created by the gravity-bending mass of a nearer cluster of galaxies,” quoting Space.com.

“Scientists said that a lake in southern Chile that mysteriously disappeared last month developed a crack which allowed the water to drain away. A buildup of water opened a crack in an ice wall along one side of the lake.

Water flowed through the crack into a nearby fjord and from there into the sea, leaving behind a dry lake-bed littered with icebergs, scientists told Chilean state television Tuesday [July 3].

[Multidimensionalman] Prana Heart Meditations

Multidimensionalman@yahoogroups.com; on behalf of; Joseph Zaidan [jnadiaz@yahoo.com]

Hi everybody,

I am posting in the MDM Group several Prana and breathing exercises. The objective is to pick up the most useful points for use  in our Prana exercises



Heart Meditations

Author: Vaidya Atreya Smith

These meditations or exercises can be very helpful in daily life. The heart meditation exists in various traditions throughout the world to help promote peace, love a harmony in the world. It is very good to do when we feel bad vibes coming to us from other people or when we work in service oriented jobs that tend to make us negative towards others.

The law of karma says that what we project on to others is what we are projecting on to ourselves - as we are all the same Self (pure consciousness, paratman or substratum). Instead of 'protecting' ourselves from other people or 'bad vibes' it is far better to give love to all living beings. This is the message of my teacher.

The first two exercises are taken from Prana: The Secret of Yogic Healing and use both visualization and breathing to activate the conscious prana (chitshakti) in ourselves and others. Pranic breathing should be done first before trying the Heart Meditation. I have now added a more advanced technique (5 June 2000) please follow the instructions carefully as this method is very strong and potentially deranging to the energetic system of the body - done correctly it transforms the person. May these exercises help all of humanity as they have helped me.



Prana breathing or the 'complete breath', uses the full capacity of the lungs. Thereby, giving us greater quantities of prana to utilize for ourselves, for others or for meditations. The heart meditation uses the complete breath to send prana out through the heart chakra and hands.

  1. place the hands on the lower abdomen, just below the navel.
  2. inhale breath through the nose (both nostrils) into the lower abdomen, the hands should move slightly out, as the diaphragm is pushing the organs in the abdominal region down and slightly out.
  3. now the lower abdomen is full of air, continue the breathe in an upward motion to the upper chest.
  4. stop when the upper chest is full of breath for a second or two.
  5. exhale slowly from the chest out through the nose.
  6. stop for several seconds with empty lungs before inhaling a new breath.
  7. repeat this cycle as necessary. This constitutes one breathing cycle.




This meditation opens the circuits from the second chakra up to the fourth chakra and then from the fourth out through the arms to the hands and beyond. These are all the circuits used in transmitting prana, so I recommend doing this exercise for five to ten minuets per day. Do not do this exercise more than ten minutes per day. It is very strong and a teacher should be present to watch the progress if it is done for longer than ten minutes per day.

This exercise also will heal any illness related to the second, third and fourth chakras over a period of time. Any chronic problems in the shoulders and arms will be helped or cured by this technique as well. For simple illness this method will give immediate results, for more complicated problems, give yourself at least three months. This exercise affects the first, second, third and fourth bodies, clearing old energetic impressions out of the subtle bodies.

Although this looks the same as prana breathing it is not. With this meditation we give the energy out; in prana breathing we collect the prana for ourselves.

Heart Meditation Image

  1. place the hands on the lower abdomen, just below the navel;
  2. inhale into the lower abdomen, the hands should move slightly out, as the diaphragm is pushing the organs in the abdominal region down and slightly out;
  3. now the lower abdomen is full of air, continue to breathe in an upward motion to the heart area;
  4. stop when the heart area is full of breath for a second or two;
  5. exhale slowly from the heart out through the arms, hands and nose;
  6. during the exhalation, move the hands and arms away from the chest in a horizontal motion. Imagine the prana carrying love or compassion out from your heart into the whole universe;
  7. stop for a second or two, then repeat for five to ten minutes.
  8. now add a golden color of light to your breathing cycle - in other words now add visualization to the breathing. Seeing the breath/prana as a golden light - like a golden liquid honey - will give you a way to focus the mind better. This golden light heals all disease and is warmer than white light which is better to promote clarity of mind - hence, use golden light to heal yourself and all of humanity. Follow the movement of the breath/golden light with your hands; starting at the lower abdomen, rising to the heart, then from the heart move the hands out in a horizontal motion as the light/prana leave your hands and then slowly lower your hands down to the lower abdomen to repeat. (see diagram)

As the hands follow the breath, so too the prana will follow the breath. On the inward breath imagine the prana carrying fresh vitality to the body along with universal golden light; on the outward breath, imagine the prana carrying golden love, golden light to the whole universe.




This exercise uses pranic breathing as a basis. The main difference is that instead of projecting the prana out through the heart and hands we direct it upwards to the crown of the head. Then we allow the prana to flow out the crown and down over the energetic body (pranamaya kosa).

  • IF YOU FEEL LIGHTHEADED FROM THIS EXERCISE STOP DOING IT IMMEDIATELY- instead do the above exercises for another 3 to 6 months and then try again.
  • This technique is NOT RECOMMENDED FOR VATA CONSTITUTION PEOPLE or people with strong VATA imbalances - do the HEART MEDITATION instead of this one.
  1. place the hands on the lower abdomen, just below the navel;
  2. inhale into the lower abdomen, the hands should move slightly out, as the diaphragm is pushing the organs in the abdominal region down and slightly out;
  3. now the lower abdomen is full of air, continue to breathe in an upward motion to the top of the head;
  4. while doing this keep your eyes half closed and unfocused - yet centered on the space between your eyebrows. With a little practice you will find a place that does not put stress on the eyes - this may be a little higher or a little lower on the space between the eyebrows;
  5. while breathing in imagine that you are breathing in white colored prana or air - as you breath in the white light moves inward to your abdomen and then upwards to your heart and then further until it reaches the top of your head;
  6. now let the prana / white light flow out of the top of your head like a fountain - see it as a shower of white light that surrounds your body and as it is falling it cleanses you of all impurities;
  7. repeat
  8. when this becomes comfortable add a slight pause of several seconds between the incoming and outgoing breaths
  9. DO THIS FOR FIVE (5) MINUTES ONLY PER DAY! Morning time is the best time, but it can be done in the evening after work as well

This exercise purifies the mind, emotions and body of impurities. Do it for three months to have results. Doing this exercise for longer than 5 minutes will generally derange the nadi (meridian) system and/or the mental stability. It is most suited to kapha and pitta types of people. If done for five minutes per day the results will be very clear and not cause any problems. This method can activate a cleansing reaction of the mind and body - be aware! Do not use any kind of drug while you are doing this method either as it is to purify you not to make you have some 'strong experience'.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti! (Om Peace, Peace, Peace!)
