Gold and health


Gold is a very precious metal; an all-natural mineral that is non-toxic and exhibits no interactions with other drugs, and is easily tolerated by the body.

Its healing properties are  being rediscovered, as modern scientists and physicians uncover what the ancients seem to have known all along:

  • Over 5,000 years ago, the Egyptians ingested gold for mental, bodily and spiritual purification. The ancients believed that gold in the body worked by stimulating the life force and raising the level of vibration on all levels.
  • The Alchemists of Alexandria developed an “elixir” made of liquid gold. They believed that gold was a mystical metal that represented the perfection of matter, and that its presence in the body would enliven, rejuvenate, and cure a multitude of diseases as well as restore youth and perfect health.
  • The Egyptians used gold in dentistry and it is still in favor today as an ideal material for dental work, approximately 13 tons of gold are used each year for crowns, bridges, inlays and dentures. Gold is ideal for these purposes because it is non-toxic, can be shaped easily, and never wears, corrodes or tarnishes.
  • In medieval Europe, gold-coated pills and “gold waters” were extremely popular. Alchemists mixed powdered gold into drinks to “comfort sore limbs,” which is one of the earliest references to arthritis.
  • During the Renaissance, Paracelsus (1493-1541) – who is considered the founder of modern pharmacology – developed many successful medicines from metallic minerals including gold. One of the greatest alchemists/chemists of all time, he founded the school of Iatrochemistry, the chemistry of medicine, which is the forerunner of pharmacology.
  • In the 1900s, surgeons would often implant a gold piece under the skin near an inflamed joint, such as a knee or elbow. As a result, the pain would often subside or cease altogether.
  • In China, the restorative properties of gold are still honored in rural villages, where peasants cook their rice with a gold coin to replenish the mineral in their bodies, and fancy Chinese restaurants put 24-karat gold-leaf in their food preparation

.More recently, gold has been medically documented to be highly effective in certain cases of inoperable cancer. Injection of microscopic gold pellets helps retard prostate cancer in men. Gold injections are also very effective in cases of acute arthritis. Women with ovarian cancer are treated with colloidal gold. Brain surgeons use 24 carat gold thread to suture delicate areas of the brain during surgery.

Medicinal Gold in the human diet whether absorbed into the blood stream from jewelry through the skin or infused in sops like Heart of Gold, imbibed like Joule’, or injected through hypodermics by licensed medical practitioners has wonderful nutritional effects on the human system.  READ MORE

A precipitous rise in the price of rice caused extreme economic hardship, particularly in rural areas where rice was the main staple of life. The rice price increase came at the peak of a post-war (World War I) inflationary spiral that also affected most consumer goods and rents, and thus urban dwellers also had considerable scope for grievances, while the government bought up existing rice stocks to support the troops overseas, which further drove rice prices higher. The government failed to intervene in economic affairs, and rural protests spread to the towns and cities.

The Rice Riots were unparalleled in modern Japanese history in terms of scope, size and violence. The initial protest occurred in the small fishing town of Ouzu, Toyama Prefecture, on 23 July 1918. Starting with peaceful petitioning, the disturbance quickly escalated to riots, strikes, looting, incendiary bombings of police stations and government offices and armed clashes.
Prime Minister Terauchi and his cabinet resigned on 29 September 1918.

Today 24 April 2008

Today it is reported that major stores in the USA and London are rationing rice in the USA (Costco, Walmart…), especially basmati, jasmine which are imported rice, although the US Rice Association says that there is no shortage of rice in the USA…more to follow

WITH rice supplies dwindling and customers hoarding stocks, the US giant Wal-Mart and British stores are starting to restrict sales constituting the first time that food rationing has been introduced in the United States. While Americans suffered some rationing during the Second World War for items such as petrol, light bulbs and stockings, they have never had to limit consumption of a key food item.

In Britain rice is being rationed by shopkeepers in Asian neighbourhoods to prevent hoarding. Tilda, the biggest importer of basmati rice, said that its buyers — who sell to the curry and Chinese restaurant trade as well as to families — were restricting customers to two bags per person. “It is happening in the cash-and-carries,” said Jonathan Calland, a company executive. “I heard from our sales force that one lady went into a cash-and-carry and tried to buy eight 20kg bags.”

Wal-Mart said that Sam’s Club, its wholesale business, which sells food to restaurants and other retailers, had limited each customer to four bags of long-grain white rice per visit. In the past three months wholesalers have experienced a sharp rise in demand for food items such as wheat, rice and milk as businesses stocked up to protect themselves against rising prices.

Global rice prices have more than doubled in the past year partly because countries such as China and India — whose economies are booming — are buying more food from abroad. At the same time, key rice producers banned exports of rice to ensure that their own people could continue to afford to buy the staple: India, China, Vietnam and Egypt have all blocked exports and so demand for rice from countries such as the United States has increased.

Costco Wholesale, the largest warehouse operator in America, said this week that demand for rice and flour had risen, with customers panicking about shortages and hoarded produce Read more here
