Cell Phones and 5G Technology: The evidence from most scientific studies has indicated that we’d be wise to reduce the amount of time spent holding a cell phone within inches of our brains. It has been a slow march rather than a race toward understanding the effects of this radiation on our bodies, but most research, including a study linking it to cancer, confirms our worst fears.

Exclusive Interview: Deirdre Imus Is on a Mission to Save Our Kids and Remove Toxins - Alpha Rising spent time with Deirdre Imus and got an exclusive tour of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in NJ.

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

Methylation Diet and Lifestyle by Dr. Kara Fitzgerald & Romilly Hodges, MS, CNS - The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

Japanese Kinpira Gobo (Burdock Root) Salad

Ingredients

  • 1.5-2 foot section of Organic gobo (burdock root) or several pieces to match equivalent length, cut into matchsticks/julienned
  • 1 medium carrot, cut into matchsticks/julienned
  • 1-2 T sesame seeds
  • 1-2 T toasted sesame oil
  • 1 T coconut syrup/sugar or equivalent sweetener
  • 1.5 T mirin
  • 1 T tamari or shoyu soy sauce
  • *Optional but strongly suggested 1 T Crushed Red pepper
  • *Optional 2 T vegan dashi (kelp, dulse seaweed broth)
  • *Optional 1 t grated  organic ginger

 Directions

Wash and peel burdock and carrot. 

Fill a bowl with cool water in which to place cut burdock and carrot to soak.

Cut burdock and carrot into matchstick sized pieces, julienne and place into cold water.  Allow to soak for a few minutes in several changes of water.

Place 1 T sesame oil in frying pan over medium heat and add carrot and gobo (burdock). Sauté for ~5 minutes or until the vegetables start to become slightly cooked.

Add mirin, sweetener, soy sauce and dashi.  Sauté while stirring until most of the liquid had reduced. Turn down to low heat.

Add remaining sesame oil, sesame seeds and chilies. Sauté about one minute more.  Remove from heat. 

* This dish is delicious served warm or cold, with maki rolls, rice dishes or even a fresh salad!

*Burdock is the delicious root of what most consider to be a common weed.  It is extremely nutrient dense and contains a wide array of trace minerals.  For this reason, it has enjoyed much esteem and many indications in traditional medicine and is considered a blood-cleansing/purifying herb in said school of thought.
