Reply Vegan Futures says: March 30, 2015 at 11:44 pm Can you do a video on the right amount of calories for the average human. And the right amount of calories for a vegan adult? And the quality of those calories? This is off the back of 1600 calories being considered starving yourself as an adult on this limited calorie diet? What are the risks health wise if any?? Reply Frozen518 says: March 31, 2015 at 7:33 pm @NutritionFacts.org So should we avoid Spirulina and Chlorella then?

With Chelation? Ist BMAA like heavy Metall, can chelation with EDTA or DMPS or DMSA can be Helpful for BMAA too or L-serine? I must go all this Toxins out of my Body….before all this stuffs will killing me……….PLS HELP!!!!! Reply Kathleen Gustafson says: September 2, 2017 at 12:47 pm The link of ALS, MS, Alzheimer's and Lyme to exposure to tick borne diseases is now solid. Add heavy metals, chemicals and toxins from our diet and environment and we have a growing epidemic of neurodegenerative disease worldwide. Reply Akane Cortich says: November 27, 2017 at 2:25 pm They found BMAA was also found in plants watered from areas of blue gree algae. The important question is what level of BMAA in food is a risk. Is it any level at all. The body mistakes BMAA for its own made protein which is then used in Motor Neurons, which then don't fold properly and cause neuron death. The issue would be what ratio of BMAA to native protein in the body is a risk. 1 part BMAA to 1 million native protein wouldn't be risk since it is 1 in million chance the BMAA would be used by the body. Would like to know this data so we can assess the level of risk we are talking about. Is there a level of BMAA in most plant and meat products, since ALL algae produce this toxin at some level, not just blue green algae (though BGA seems to be a major producer) – and it can then get concentrated in the food chain. In Guam fruit bats were eating cycads which had blue green algae on them – over time bat meat concentrated BMAA in their meat, and the natives ate the fruit bats in soup form, so the BMAA boiled out into solution making it more available. So they were getting high concentrations. But lower concentrations over an extended time frame is also the risk. So the IMPORTANT question is – what is the general BMAA levels in ALL food stuffs, not just sea food. Remember pigs eat lots of different stuff in a wet environment good for algae growth…and so on. Reply Jim Gavioli says: December 28, 2017 at 1:31 am For someone who maybe be alarmed at hearing this info, i.e., high ingestion of seafood for years – what if anything can be done to protect your motor neurons prophylactically … or reverse the damage before ALS develops?

Where i was given medications to help my symptoms. In August 2017 my symptoms worsened, with no hope of a cure from the hospital i looked out for an alternative treatment. I read on a website about Perfect Cure Herbal Clinic and their successful herbal treatment for ALS and some other viruses, i immediately contacted them via their E-mail and purchased the ALS herbal remedy. I used the herbal remedy for 9 weeks, all my symptoms including difficulty in walking, weakness in legs and arm, slurred speech etc miraculously disappeared, my speech is understandable now, its unbelievable.You can also contact them, if you have ALS too.

I have control of my body once again!Email: [email protected]Whats-app: +2348118184266 Reply MsNooneinparticular says: September 7, 2018 at 4:51 am I just ate an assload of cocktail shrimp from Alabama. Yikes. Had an uncle who died of ALS so this is always a worry for me. Is all seafood potentially contaminated with BMAA, or just certain types from some areas? And what about spirulina supplements? (I don't take that vile stuff but my ex did daily). Reply Alisa Cameron says: October 13, 2018 at 3:28 am My husband was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) when he was 61 years old 4 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help him. The medical team did even less. His decline was rapid and devastating. His arms weakened first, then his hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told us about Rich Herbs Foundation (RHF) and their successful ALS TREATMENT, we visited their website www. richherbsfoundation. com and ordered their ALS/MND Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed his Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, he is able to walk and able to ride his treadmill again, he is pretty active now. Reply cheng mike says: January 29, 2019 at 12:38 am My ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) Symptoms started out with a "foot drop" on my left foot. From there my left leg lost all muscle tone and the entire left leg muscles are gone. Also my fingers and thumbs "contract" at times. Left arm loses muscle tone too. My family doctor said there is no cure for ALS, I was just living unhappy life till I saw a blog talking about Best Health Herbal Centre. So many people said positive things about their herbal product which I don’t believe at first. I showed my daughter what I saw online about their product and my daughter decided we shall give it a try. Few days later she purchased two bottle of ALS herbal remedy which they said I will use for only six weeks. My life changed automatically after six weeks of applying the herbal remedy as instructed. All my symptoms was terminated completely and am now living ALS FREE .. All Thanks to Best Health Herbal Centre for their good work in people’s life.

Few weeks into the treatment I had improved muscle strength and coordination, improved speech, improved walking balance, increased appetite, improved eyesight and improved mood swings. 4 years since the treatment, i still feel stronger than ever with no symptoms at all, only occasional tingling on my right foot at night. I feel cured from the disease! Reply Lennon Paiva says: February 1, 2019 at 1:47 am Why don't we see a high incidence of ALS on Japanese people who eat a lot of fish? Reply William Jennifer says: February 22, 2019 at 9:44 pm this is real my Mother was diagnosed with ALS before November of 2017, since the prognosis she has lost the ability to speak, struggles to chew and swallow, her arm strength is minimal on her best days and she’s loosing control of her balance and neck muscles. She has began to decline not only in health but mentally as well as she has given up the fight it seems, i couldn't just watch my mom dying so i decided to go into the internet for a possible solution and luckily i saw a Facebook post singing the praises of a herbal formula from Dr Ogbeifun that someone with ALS used and got cured and quickly contacted the email ([email protected] gmail. com) and order for the formula and since i started using the formula my mom have recovered greatly. am so happy and thanks Ogbefun for reviving my mom. you can contact him for the ALS herbal formula via his above email or add him on whatsapp +2348102574680 Best Regards Reply Clement Price says: March 26, 2019 at 4:10 am My Wife was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) when she was 72 years old 4 years ago.

Today even that which could be considered acceptable fish food is contaminated. Blue green algae can be breathed in, swallowed when in the water or drinking it or eaten thru the contaminated sea life. Some people get the short straw and it finds its way to the nerve centre and starts switching off our power connections. Other toxins may do the same thing. Reply Plant based life says: October 1, 2019 at 8:43 pm Bioaccumulation and biomagnification of β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA), a potent neurotoxin, has been demonstrated in various food webs. It is alarming as this intensification of BMAA will result in exposure to higher concentrations from a direct cyanobacterial source. As more food items are being identified as a source of BMAA and with the large variations in BMAA content, the aim of the present study was to evaluate BMAA uptake by, and accumulation in, two commonly consumed vegetables, Lactuca sativa and Allium fistulosum. Plants exposed to pure BMAA in controlled laboratory experiments, as well as vegetables naturally irrigated with water containing a BMAA producing cyanobacterial bloom were evaluated during growth and ripening. In the laboratory exposures, free BMAA was detected in both the edible ripe parts of L. sativa and A. fistulosum after 60 days of exposure to a total of 4.5 µg BMAA. However, in the bloom exposure samples no BMAA could be detected in the ripe vegetables of A. fistulosum, Cucurbita pepo, or Brassica rapa chinensis. The study emphasises the need to further screen items for BMAA to understand the human exposure risk as well as the difference between BMAA uptake patterns with free BMAA and that contained in cyanobacterial cells.
