Better Protect your Pooch!

For most of us, the very last thing we would ever want to do is cause harm to our fur babies, in this case, canines. I have now lived with a dog for over a year and only want to protect her. As health issues continue to rise in our four-legged companions, we need only look at a few factors to understand why and easily shift things to avoid potential health threats.

Our homes offer the most hazards for exposure to toxins from wood and tile/linoleum cleaners and polishes to carpet deodorizers and emissions from air “fresheners” and candles. Any non-natural cleaners are to be avoided because if they walk upon it, lick it or inhale it; they are exposed to it. The concern carries over to include second-hand smoke and vapor from e-cigs too.

Most of us know about the dangers from a dog ingesting chocolate, grapes, onions, garlic, raisins, and human medications, but did you know that if you are feeding them canned dog food the BPA’s found in most can cause serious issues. Some companies offer BPA-free cans, but a fresh diet is best.

Please note that rawhide treats are not safe for a dog of any size due to possible death by choking, intestinal blockage and poisoning. It is not a meat treat but rather a leather industry by-product, the backside of leather hides and are often finished with a myriad of non-food-grade glues. If you feed these to your dog or ever would, you owe it to all concerned to review it or investigate them further. Here is a terribly cute and effective video that explains it all.

Too many vaccines can cause harm as well, and you can investigate online to learn more but just know there is controversy around how much and how often some are given when a simple titer test could be taken to assess if your pooch has been effectively inoculated rather than over medicated.

GMO ingredients in dog food should be avoided with the most coming through corn and soy grown in America. Also, canines require no grains in their diets, and some dog food companies use them as inexpensive fillers. Always buy the best food you are able/willing to, with no byproducts and a focus on meats and vegetables. Ever wonder why allergies in dogs have risen and it is often GMO’s and may be the same for humans.

One of the largest culprits of exposing dogs to toxins is through fertilizers, pesticides, etc. used on grass, in gardens and carried in the water flowing next to curbs. Like humans, the dog can uptake whatever their flesh, including paw pads and nose, is exposed to as well as through licking and inhalation.

In one study at Tufts, it was proven that a canines exposure to grass that has been professionally treated by a lawn care company increased their risk for death-inducing canine malignant lymphoma by as much as 70 percent! If your neighbor is having their lawn treated the drift of it into parts of your yard are very likely. Large parks, schools, apartments, etc. are potential toxic areas since so often they use poisonous products to treat the grass. Please investigate this further.

I understand how much our canine companions mean to us and wanted to ensure that you knew what I did in how to keep your love healthier and safer. Happy Cinco-De-Mayo amigo and enjoy your weekend! Feel free to follow Nutritional Truths here or on Facebook and share as you care to-Be well!

Get to know Dr. Linus Pauling

With the temperatures finally falling in North Texas well it seems like October now. The pink washing continues with Cancer awareness month rolling on and you deserve to know the truth that solutions to cancer exist just review my previous writings to learn much more.

Over the past one hundred years several thought leaders, Nobel Prize recipients, etc. have shared their views on the truths about cancer and the cancer industry. I would like to introduce you to one of these people who were intelligent beyond my means and to say was well-respected is an understatement.

Dr. Linus Pauling was the only person ever to receive two unshared Nobel Prizes for Chemistry (1954) and also for Peace (1962). Considered by his peers as one of the two greatest scientists of the twentieth century he is also considered the father of molecular biology.

He spent seventy years advancing science on many levels and within several areas including orthomolecular medicine, Vitamin C, genetics, molecular disease, physiology, electronegativity, and others. With the last thirty years of his life focused on peace activism and humanitarian issues and now for a few of the wise man’s quotes.

“There is no safe amount of radiation. Even small amounts do harm.”

“By the proper intakes of vitamins and other nutrients and by following a few other healthful practices from youth or middle age on, you can, I believe, extend your life and years of well-being by twenty-five or even thirty-five years.”

“You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.”

“Optimum nutrition is the medicine of tomorrow.”

“Provided one has the correct level of vitamin, mineral, and nutritional input; the body can overcome the disease.”

“Although physicians, as part of their training, are taught that the dosage of a drug that is prescribed for the patient must be very carefully determined and controlled, they seem to have difficulty in remembering that the same principle applies to the vitamins.”

“If you take a reasonable amount of vitamin C regularly, the incidence of the common cold goes down. If you get a cold and start immediately, as soon as you start sneezing and sniffling, the cold just doesn’t get going.”

An incredibly intelligent and caring man Dr. Pauling left our planet in 1994, and much of his work and discoveries are still standards within various sciences. Investigate him further to learn much more about this amazing scientist. Enjoy your weekend, share this as you like and Be Well!
