“For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD Isaiah 66.2

Synergistic effects

Lycopene is the major carotenoid in tomatoes. Tomatoes contain a matrix of many bioactive components, including vitamin C, vitamin E, other carotenoids (a-, β-, γ- carotene, lutein), and flavonoids. Their synergistic interactions, when used in combination, may be responsible for the observed beneficial effects of tomato-based products. This study investigated the synergistic antioxidant activity of lycopene in combination with β-carotene, vitamin E, and lutein. A liposome system was used to test the synergistic antioxidant activity. The carotenoid mixtures were more efficient in protecting liposome from oxidation than the individual carotenoid .Research Article

The lies told by the Serpent in the Garden, “you shall not die” and “you will become wise like God,” (become a god), are the foundational pillars of paganism/nature worship. From this religious system many proclaimed healing methods have evolved.

The explanation for their healing power is to be found as an extension of the pagan doctrine of origin; that of a perfect blending of a two part cosmic energy which created the cosmos, earth, and man. When this creative balanced energy, which is said to produce life, becomes unbalanced, it is believed to allow disease and illness, and in turn, various therapeutic modalities are believed to restore balance and produce healing.

These therapies are not some healing modality simply discovered and used by ancient pagan civilizations, they are believed to function not only as a method of restoring health but also contribute to the religious trek to nirvana, the pagan’s heaven. Such methods are not dependent upon being in harmony with God’s physical laws of physics and chemistry. Science has not found them to work by known laws of science.

These holistic alternative healing practices are used as an “entering wedge,” “right arm,” of evangelism in the Neo-Pagan–New Age movement. Marilyn Ferguson in her book “The Aquarian Conspiracy,” (called by New York Times the New Age Bible) chapter 4 titled “Crossover”, refers to several of these therapeutics as “psychotechnologies” which are effective in initiating a change in a person’s world view, from the Judeo-Christian world-view, toward one of Eastern pantheism. This “right arm” of the crossover message is designed to affect and bring about a change of world view for an entire civilization and even the whole world.

 

Vegetarian Diet, Seventh Day Adventists and Risk of Cardiovascular Mortality

Vegetarian diet, Seventh Day Adventists and risk of cardiovascular mortality: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Aus der MMW Fortschritte der Medizin 13. Nov. 2014 / Sonderheft 2 Seite 7

“Studien, die sich mit vegetarischer Ernährung befassen, nehmen oft Personen in den Blick, die aus weltanschaulichen Gründen auf tierische Nahrungsmittel verzichten, wie etwa die Siebenten-Tags-Adventisten.
Forscher der Universität Manchester (1) haben in einer Metaanalyse von acht Studien zum Vegetarismus mit insgesamt mehr als 180.000 Probanden gezeigt, dass sich die religiöse Ausrichtung durchaus auf die Resultate auswirken könnte. So führte vegetarische Nahrung hinsichtlich der Gesamtmortalität in allen drei Studien, die Adventisten einbezogen, zu Risikoreduktionen zwischen 20% und 50% im Vergleich zu Nichtvegetariern. Waren hingegen keine Adventisten vertreten – wie etwa in der EPIC-Oxford-Studie von 2013 oder der Vegetarierstudie des Deutschen Krebsforschungszentrums von 2005 -, ließen sich keine positiven Effekte der vegetarischen Diät nachweisen. Gleiches galt bezüglich zerebrovaskulären Erkrankungen.
Die Autoren erklären dies damit, dass der Adventismus nicht nur aus Essensvorschriften bestehe. Adventisten rauchen auch seltener und leben insgesamt gesünder. Sie werden zum Alkohol- und Drogenverzicht, zu regelmäßiger körperlicher Betätigung, genügend Schlaf und stabilen psychosozialen Beziehungen ermuntert.
“Zusammengefasst geht die Verminderung von KHK und Gesamtsterblichkeit unter vegetarischer Ernährung hauptsächlich auf die Adventistenstudien zurück”, so die Autoren. Studien in anderen Populationen hätten weniger überzeugende Belege geliefert.”
