A subject that we don’t hear a lot about anywhere is called Candida albicans, which is also known as the Candida albicans yeast infection or candida overgrowth.
Let me explain this. As you know, I’ve had Dr. Jeff McCombs on the show before, a longtime friend of mine. He is the world’s foremost authority on candida. If you have ever taken an antibiotic in your life, even one antibiotic, the antibiotic kills all the friendly bacteria in your intestine and allows unfriendly bacteria, including candida, to overgrow in the intestine. It begins to burrow itself into the intestinal walls. What this does is now when you eat food, the food can’t go through the intestine very well, so you have constipation. It also makes the food stick there and it turns putrid or toxic, putrefies, and it creates allergies and puts toxins into the bloodstream making you tired, lethargic, spacey, and so on. It also means you gain weight very quickly and your stomach protrudes. It also needs to be fed. The yeast needs to be fed so it makes you crave and have uncontrollable urges to eat pasta, potato chips, ice cream, cake, bread basically, any carbohydrate. And when you eat these carbohydrates, you get gassy, you belch, you get bloated because the yeast is now being fed by the carbohydrates or the sugar, anything that’s sugary, and begins to blow you up and you get very belchy.
Dr. McCombs came up with a cure for this. It’s called the Candida Cleanse. It is the only candida cleanse in the world that actually gets rid of both candida yeast and the candida fungus. Every other candida protocol you do only attacks the yeast. That’s not the big problem. The big problem is the candida fungus. His protocol gets rid of both. When you do his protocol, the first thing that everybody notices within a week is their stomach gets flat. You have no more gas and bloating. You can eat pasta and you don’t get gassy or bloated anymore. You also lose all of your cravings for carbohydrates, your skin, your eyes, your hair, and your nails look better and younger, your breath s mells better, you have much more energy, no more depression, no more spaciness, no more staring out the window with your eyes glazed over, no more confused mind or feeling frustrated emotionally or mentally, you sleep unbelievable, and everyone loses weight.
What’s going to happen is your body is going to shrink because all the bloatiness is going to go away. All your clothes are going to be bigger. You’re going to have tremendous amounts of energy. Your metabolism is going to skyrocket. Your skin is going to come out clear and beautiful. If you have acne, it’s going to go away. Bad breath, the body odor goes away. Fatigue goes away. Your hair is going to look unbelievably vibrant!
Candida is a huge problem! Everyone has it! If you’ve had any antibiotics or fall to any of those categories I mentioned, whether it’s gas, bloatiness, constipation, fatigue, if you feel spacey, have a white-coated tongue, bad breath, body odor, if you’re bloated, if you have gas, belching, acid reflux, any of these conditions, you don’t sleep well, you all fall into that category of having a candida yeast overgrowth.
So, click here to start this protocol today!!

Would you knowingly eat ground beef which contained scrap meat items such as muscle connective tissue which had been sprayed with ammonium hydroxide? Would you want your children to eat such ground beef in their school lunches? According to recent revelations, if you or your children eat ground beef there is a strong chance that both may be happening.
Last week, former United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientist-turned-whistleblower Gerald Zirnstein revealed that 70 percent of the ground beef sold at supermarkets contained the fake-meat additive which is commonly referred to as “pink slime”. This revelation came on the heels of reports that the USDA is purchasing 7 million pounds of the product for school lunches in public schools.
“Pink slime” is taking over ground beef at our grocers and schools
“Pink slime” is made by gathering beef waste trimmings, simmering them at low heat to make it easy to separate fat from the muscle, and using a centrifuge to spin the waste trimmings to complete the separation. Next, the mixture is sent through pipes and sprayed with ammonium hydroxide gas to kill bacteria. Finally, the product is packaged into bricks, frozen and shipped to grocery stores and meat packers, where it is added to most ground beef.
The beef trimmings are particularly susceptible to contamination and were once relegated to pet food and cooking oil. However, Beef Products Inc. (BPI), the makers of “pink slime, commissioned a study which reportedly demonstrated that the ammonia process would kill E. coli as well as salmonella. Ever since the study, use of “pink slime” in ground beef has increased.
In 2009, theNew York Timesreported that despite the added ammonia, tests of “pink slime” across the country revealed dozens of instances ofE. coliand salmonella. According to the Times,E. coliwas found three times and salmonella 48 times between 2005 and 2009, including two contaminated batches of meat totaling 27,000 pounds.
Zirnstein, who first coined the term “pink slime” in a USDA memo, told ABC news “It’s economic fraud. It’s not fresh ground beef. …It’s a cheap substitute being added in.”
Zirnstein and fellow USDA scientist Carl Custer both warned against using what the industry calls “lean finely textured beef,” but they were overruled by their government bosses. The “pink slime” does not have to appear on the adulterated ground beef labels because, over objections of its own scientists, USDA officials with links to the beef industry labeled it meat.
The woman who made the decision to approve the mix is former undersecretary of agriculture, Joann Smith. Her decision led to hundred of millions of dollars for BPI.
“The under secretary said, ‘it’s pink, therefore it’s meat,’” Custer told ABC News.
When Smith left the USDA in 1993, she was appointed to the board of directors for BPI’s principal major supplier where she reportedly made at least $1.2 million over the next 17 years. The USDA said that, while Smith’s appointment was legal at the time, she could not have immediately joined the board under current ethics rules.
News of the USDA’s plan to bring 7 million pounds of “pink slime” to school cafeterias nationwide comes just weeks after the government announced new guidelines to ensure students are given healthier options for school meals. Notably, the USDA purchase comes after fast food chains such as McDonald’s, Taco Bell and Burger King have discontinued use of “pink slime.”
A public outcry against the “slime” is perhaps led most prominently by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, who has also waged war successfully against flavored milk in Los Angeles schools.

In an interview with Louis James, the inimitable Doug Casey throws cold water on those celebrating the economic recovery.
[Skype rings: It's Doug Casey, calling from Cafayate, Argentina. He sounds tired, but pleased with himself.]
Doug: Lobo, get out your mower; it’s time to cut down some green shoots again, and debunk a bit of the so-called recovery.
Louis: Ah. I have to say, Doug, the so-called recovery is looking more than “so-called” to a lot of smart folks. Even our own Terry Coxon says the recovery is real, albeit weak.
Doug: Terry’s probably looking at it by the numbers, some of which are reported to be improving. But let’s come back to the numbers later and start with fundamentals. The first order of business, as usual, is a definition: a depression is a period of time in which the average standard of living declines significantly. I believe that’s what we’re seeing now, whatever the numbers produced by the politicians may seem to tell us.
L: I was just shopping for food and noticed that the bargain bread was on sale at two for $5. My gas costs almost as much per gallon. That’s got to hurt a lot of people, especially on the lower income rungs. I don’t need to ask; a member of my family just got a job that pays $12 per hour – about three times what I made working for the university food service back when I was in college – and it’s not enough to cover his rent and basic bills. If his wife gets similar work, they’ll make ends meet, but woe unto them if anyone in their family crashes a car or requires serious medical treatment.
Doug: That’s just what I mean. Actually, the trend towards both partners in a marriage having to work really started in the early ’70s – after Nixon cut all links between the dollar and gold in August of 1971. Before then, in the “Leave It to Beaver” era, the average family got by quite well with only the husband working. If he got sick or lost his job, the wife was a financial backup system. Now, if something happens to either one, the family is screwed.
I think, from a very long-term perspective, historians will one day see the ’60s as the peak of American prosperity – certainly relative to the rest of the world… but perhaps even in absolute terms, even taking continued advances in technology into account. Maybe the ’59 Cadillac was the bell ringing at the top of that civilizational market.
My friend Frank Trotter, president of EverBank, was just telling me that the net worth of the median US citizen is only $6,000. That’s the median, meaning that half of the people have less than that. Most people don’t even have enough stashed away to buy the cheapest new car without going into debt. It used to be that people bought cars out of savings, with cash. Now they have to finance them over at least five years… or lease them – which means they never ever have even that trivial asset, but a liability in the form of a lease.
The bulk of the 49 percent below this guy don’t even have that – with the concentration of wealth among the top one percent, most of those below average have seriously negative net worth, at least compared to their earning capacity. In other words, the US, Europe, and other so-called First-World countries are in a wealth-liquidation cycle that will be as profound as it will be protracted.

“Obama is getting us ready with a war with Iran – now he is blaming them for high gas prices. Shouldn’t we be blaming companies like BP? Do they really need to be making all the money on in the world?” –KTRN
For all the domestic political talk about high gas prices, President Obama says one major factor can be traced overseas: Iran.
“Right now the key thing that is driving higher gas prices is actually the world’s oil markets and uncertainty about what’s going on in Iran and the Middle East,” Obama said in an interview with AAA. “And that’s adding a $20 or $30 premium to oil prices, and that affects obviously gas prices.”
Obama also cited Iran during his recent two-day western tour to discuss gas prices, and his “all-of-the-above” strategy that includes investment in new sources of energy.
“The main reason the gas prices are high right now is because people are worried about what’s happening with Iran,” Obama said in Oklahoma. “It doesn’t have to do with domestic oil production. It has to do with the oil markets looking and saying, you know what, if something happens there could be trouble and so we’re going to price oil higher just in case.”
One major worry: the prospect of an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, slowing the oil supply and spiking up prices even further.

This month, as unleaded gasoline prices increased for 17 consecutive days (to a national average of $3.647 per gallon – up 11% thus far this year) and West Texas Intermediate crude joined Brent crude in breaking through a $100 per barrel level, energy prices emerged as a full blown political issue. While President Obama conveniently claimed that rising prices were the consequence of an improving economy (they’re not, and it isn’t) Republican fingers began to point sanctimoniously at current drilling policies. And while none of the accusers had any idea why prices were actually going up, the award for the most dangerous ‘solution’ must go to Bill O’Reilly at Fox News. The master of the “No Spin Zone” announced that high pump prices could be permanently brought down by a presidential order to restrict exports of refined gasoline. Not only does Mr. O’Reilly’s idea demonstrate contempt for the U.S. Constitution but it also displays a thorough lack of economic understanding.
Oil and gas prices are high now for a very simple reason: the U.S. Federal Reserve has gone on an unapologetic campaign to push up inflation and push down the value of the U.S. dollar. Just last week on CNBC James Bullard, the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, stated this unequivocally. What is somewhat overlooked is the degree to which an inflationary policy at home creates inflation abroad. Many countries who peg their currencies to the U.S. dollar need to follow suit with the Fed. As China, for example, prints yuan to keep it from appreciating against the dollar, prices rise in China. This is especially true for commodities like crude oil.
Many critics, such as Mr. O’Reilly, have relied on a limited understanding of the supply/demand dynamic to question why gas prices are currently so high at home. With domestic gasoline production at a multi-year high and domestic demand at a multi-year low, he logically expects low prices. But he fails to grasp the fact that the price of gasoline is set internationally and that U.S. factors are only a component.
O’Reilly’s loudly proclaimed solution is to limit the ability of U.S. refiners (and drillers) to export production abroad. If the energy stays at home, he argues, the increased supply would push down prices. Although O’Reilly professes to be a believer in free markets he argues that oil (and gasoline by extension) is really a natural resource that doesn’t belong to the energy companies, but to the “folks” on Main Street. What good would “drill baby drill” do for us, he argues, if all the production is simply shipped to China?
First off, the U.S. government has no authority whatsoever to determine to whom a company may or may not sell. This concept should be absolutely clear to anyone with at least a casual allegiance to free markets. In particular, the U.S. Constitution makes it explicit that export duties are prohibited. Furthermore, energy extracted from the ground, and produced by a private enterprise, is no more a public good than a chest of drawers that has been manufactured from a tree that grows on U.S soil. Frankly, this point from Mr. O’Reilly comes straight out of the Marxist handbook and in many ways mirrors the sentiments that have been championed by the Occupy Wall Street movement. When such ideas come from the supposed “right,” we should be very concerned.
But apart from the Constitutional and ideological concerns, the idea simply makes no economic sense.
In 2011 the United States ran a trade deficit of $558 billion. For now at least America has been able to reap huge benefits from the willingness of foreign producers to export to the U.S. without equal amounts of imports. China supplies us with low priced consumer goods and Saudi Arabia sells us vast quantities of oil. In return they take U.S. IOUs. Without their largesse, domestic prices for consumers would be much higher. How long they will continue to extend credit is anybody’s guess, but shutting off the spigots of one of our most valuable exports won’t help.
In recent years petroleum has become an increasingly large component of U.S. exports, partially filling the void left by our manufacturing output. According to the IMF, the U.S. exported $10.3 billion of oil products in 2001. By 2011, this figure had jumped nearly seven fold to more than $70 billion. How would our trading partners respond if we decided to deny them our gasoline?
Keeping more gasoline at home could hold down prices temporarily, but how much better off would the “folks” be if all the prices of Chinese made goods at Wal-Mart suddenly went up, or if such products completely disappeared from our shelves because the Chinese government decided to ban exports that they declared “belonged to the Chinese people?” What would happen to the price of energy here if Saudi Arabia made a similar decision with respect to their oil?
But most importantly, limiting the ability of U.S. energy companies to export abroad will do absolutely nothing to improve the American economy. As a result of our diminished purchasing power, American demand for oil has declined in relation to the growing demand abroad. Consequently, we are buying a continually lower percentage of the world’s energy output. Consumers in emerging markets can now afford to buy some of the production that used to be snapped up by Americans. If U.S. suppliers were limited to domestic customers, then prices could drop temporarily. But what would happen then?
With the U.S. adopting a protectionist stance, and with gasoline prices in the U.S. lower than in other parts of the world, less overseas crude would be sent to American refineries. At the same time lower prices at home would constrict profits for domestic suppliers who would then scale back production (and lay off workers). The resulting decrease in supply would send prices right back up, potentially higher than before. The only change would be that we would have hamstrung one of our few viable industrial sectors. (For more about how diminishing supplies could exert upward pressures on a variety of energy products, please see the article in the latest edition of my Global Investor newsletter).

In May 2008, as crude oil steamed toward a July — and all-time — high of $147 per barrel, a Goldman Sachs group predicted that black gold’s price could move as high as $200 within the following 24 months.
Instead, during the second half of the year its price rolled over and began a free fall to near $30 as December brought the eventful year to a close.
It now appears, however, that Goldman might just have been early in its prognostication, rather than simply wrong.
Oh, I know, light, sweet crude is currently trading near $100 a barrel, and it would require a host of major events to drive it to double that level, especially during 2012.
But almost unnoticed is a price increase by nearly a third in just the past month. I’m wagering that a host of the potentially catastrophic events could involve Iraq and its neighbour to the east, Iran. The result, almost certainly, would be a steep escalation of crude levies.
Swimming in oil?
For now, energy affairs in war-torn Iraq are progressing swimmingly. The country’s production has grown by leaps and bounds since major oil companies from around the world – beginning with a BP-led (NYSE: BP) consortium, and later including ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) and Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-B) – began accepting the government’s unusual contractual terms and started reinvigorating its major (albeit waning) fields.
The companies have boosted Iraqi production from a couple of thousand barrels a day to 2.6 million daily barrels in just over a year.
Even more impressive are the seemingly reasonable notions that the country could reach 9 million barrels a day within a few years. That number assumes, however, that the companies are able to plug away unabated. And therein lies the rub.

“Detoxing is key to good health. You should really consider doing some type of detox program twice a year. It’s easy and you’ll feel better.” –KTRN
Have you ever been constipated? Felt bloated? Had excess gas? Felt like something just wasn’t right? Many people don’t realize that some of the physical ailments they feel on a daily basis are a result of a body that is loaded with toxins in desperate need of detox.
If you’ve ever heard the saying, “Death Begins in the Colon,” you might also know that many coroners, upon autopsy, discover diseased, toxin-laden colons. Constipation, which is related directly to a sluggish or in many cases toxin filled colon, accounts for more than 2 million doctor visits a year. And according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Americans (NIDDK) alone spend $725 million on laxatives annually. (What these suffering consumers don’t know is that these laxatives may only make their problem worse in the long run.)
According to the American Cancer Society, this year alone, 569,490 Americans will die from cancer. That’s about 1,500 people per day suffering and dying from cancer. Sadly, the past few decades have seen a significant increase in cancer diagnosis and death from cancer despite our highly advanced medical technology and early detection initiatives.
It’s vital that all Americans wake up to these deadly facts and take action. The question remains for many, “If we have the most advanced medical care in the world and early detection has become a focus of most, then why are cancer rates soaring and death from cancers killing off so many?”
Check out the following symptoms to see if your body is sending you the signals that you need to detox – soon!
Signs of Toxic Overload that a Detox can Improve:
Aches and pains
Belly fat (hard to lose)
Food cravings (especially for ‘fake foods’)
Irritability, mood swings
Death Begins in the Colon
The colon is the body’s sewage system. But like all healthy and properly functioning sewage systems it needs to be cleaned, emptied, and maintained to function properly.
When we eat highly processed, refined, or what I call ‘fake,’ foods our colons become laden with the unhealthy debris from these foods. As you know if you’ve visited my site before, I highly advocate the removal of all fake foods from your diet for just this reason (plus a few more).
These fake foods so many Westerners consuming in huge quantities are filled with toxins in the form of high fructose syrups, hydrogenated oils, dangerous food dyes, seasonings with unknown ingredients, MSG, preservatives and other ingredients that not only do our bodies not need but really do damage to our vital organs and entire body systems.
I strongly recommend that if you (or your loved ones) currently eat a mainly fake food diet to begin to eliminate these fake foods and replace them with real foods. These are any foods from nature; as close to the source as you can get; fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, pure water, and more organic foods that are grown locally and have no processing involved before they reach your mouth.
But many times this isn’t enough if you’ve been eating a highly processed, fake food diet for any period of time.

Every essential household bill including food, petrol, energy and rail fares is going up, official figures showed yesterday.
The increases are fuelling the inflationary surge and leaving millions of families struggling to cope.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics show the annual inflation rate hit 4.4 per cent in July – up from 4.2 per cent in June – and it is predicted to hit 5 per cent within months.
One analyst, Andrew Goodwin, senior economic adviser to the accountant Ernst & Young’s Item Club, warned: ‘This is really just the calm before the storm.’
Housing costs, and water, electricity and gas bills rose by 4.6 per cent on an annual basis, the highest increase in two years.
Food bills were 5.8 per cent higher than a year ago, while alcohol was up by 8 per cent on July last year.
Clothing increased by 4.2 per cent, the highest annual surge since records began in 1997.
To add to the pressure, Npower yesterday became the latest energy giant to hit its 6.5million customers with inflation-busting price rises.
UK MARKET RECOVERY CONTINUES DESPITE EUROZONE WOES
The London market clawed back its earlier losses today after better than expected data from the U.S. calmed fears caused by disappointing German growth.
The FTSE 100 Index had dropped as much as 85 points, or 1.5 per cent, in early trading after figures showed the German economy grew by just 0.1 per cent in the second quarter of 2011 – far below expectations of 0.5 per cent.
But the blue chip index staged a recovery to close up 7.1 points at 5357.6 after traders’ nerves were soothed by encouraging U.S. economic figures.
U.S. production jumped 0.9 per cent in July, which was above expectations of 0.5 per cent and up from June’s 0.2 per cent, after it was boosted by a stronger car sector.
There was more good news for the world’s biggest economy after ratings agency Fitch reaffirmed its triple ‘A’ rating, just days after a downgrade from Standard & Poor’s sparked a bloodbath on world markets.
But despite the U.S. data, fears remained about strength of the global recovery.
The German-owned giant said average gas bills will jump by 15.7 per cent and electricity by 7.2 per cent. Dual fuel will rise by an average of 12.2 per cent. The increase adds £141 on to a typical dual fuel customer’s annual bill, which rises from £1,149 to £1,290.
A typical worker in Britain earns £1,650 after tax every month, which means their dual fuel bill will wipe out nearly a month’s salary.
Only one of the six energy giants – EDF Energy – has not increased its prices, but it said yesterday that they are ‘constantly under review.’
Adam Scorer, a director of watchdog Consumer Focus, said Npower’s move is ‘hard to swallow for hard-pressed consumers’.
He said the price rises ‘defy all common sense’, particularly as wholesale prices are far below their peak.
The latest half-year results from Npower show it more than doubled its profits in the six months to June 30 from £135.2million to £309million.
Consumer Focus said around 2.7million people will be tipped into ‘fuel poverty’ as a result of the latest round of price rises by energy giants.
Those in fuel poverty have to spend more than 10 per cent of their income on energy bills to stay warm.
In America today, everybody has nutritional deficiencies. In my book, Natural Cures ‘They’ Don’t Want You to Know About, I mentioned the four causes of virtually every disease. I don’t care if you have lupus, MS, cancer, heart disease, breast cancer, or prostate cancer. I don’t care if you have headaches, migraines, insomnia, or depression. I don’t care if you have herpetic viruses or you get colds and flus or you have fibromyalgia, arthritis, acid reflux, gas, bloating, or indigestion. You name the problem; it is caused by at least one of four things.
