Andrew Carnegie, legendary tycoon and philanthropist.

Andrew Carnegie arrived in the U.S. in 1848 with barely a dollar to his name. By 1901, he was the richest man in the world.

At the height of his power, he was approached by a young journalist named Napoleon Hill who was interested in telling the stories of successful people.

Carnegie saw a special drive in Hill and in 1908 decided that Hill would document all of the strategies that made him a legendary businessman and philanthropist.

Together, they helped pioneer the self-help genre, and Hill's 1937 book "Think and Grow Rich" has gone on to become one of the top-selling books of all time.

When Hill began his career writing about success, Carnegie gave him his "10 Rules of Success" that provided a foundation for much of Hill's work. Here's a synopsis of the rules, which appear in the forthcoming collection "The Science of Success":

(NaturalNews) In response to Natural News releasing accurate, scientifically-validated information about toxic heavy metals found in rice protein products, there has been a sustained disinfo campaign to try to distort the truth by claiming everyday fruits and vegetables contain high levels of toxic heavy metals.

"There's lead in everything!"
the denialists claim, hoping you won't realize the statement is false. There actually isn't lead in everything: most foods measure ZERO lead, it turns out.

In fact, a close look at the"Total Diet Study Statistics on Element Results - U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition"document reveals that the MEDIAN amount of lead in most fresh vegetables is zero.

JAPAN : Dole, Pharma Foods tout banana-based material in fight against flu


MAY 28, 2014

A banana-based food could help combat influenza outbreaks, according to research by Pharma Foods International Co. and Dole Japan Inc.

In the joint research project, which also included the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, a material called Banafine was fed to a group of 10 mice over 10 days, before they were infected with the flu virus.

The mice were compared with another group that was infected with the flu virus but were not fed Banafine.

In the first group, only one mouse died within the 10-day period, while in the other group, five died on or before the eighth day.

Japan-based Pharma Foods and Dole Japan, a unit of U.S. food giant Dole Food Co., (???)  developed Banafine by putting unripe bananas through enzymatic degradation and fermentation processes.

“It has been confirmed that Banafine consumption improves immunity from viruses that enter the body,”
a Pharma Foods official said Tuesday.

comentó el investigador a la agencia de noticias.

Torres, junto a un grupo de investigación, realizó análisis sensoriales y físico-químicos de la maduración, así como de todo el proceso de almacenamiento, tomando mue…
