I know the parasites in the intestines may not exactly like a hot pepper--especially the type that eat the food we eat -like tapeworm.
In most cases ( but perhaps not in yours) its not to eat hot peppers every day- you're going to end up making your body acidic. Cayenne has its uses, but abusing hot peppers by making them a dietary staple in your diet will backfire that way. Cayenne will rev up the circulation and probably save a persons' life if having a stroke or heart attack.-- it is something I read on the "Ask the Barefoot Herbalist" forum that is critical to have in every medicine chest.-- but MH (the forum owner over there) says just dont eat it globs of it every day or you'll end up acidic down the road.
Now I never knew sardines were so good-til I read this newsletter called "Alternatives for the Health Connscious Individual"
THere is an article in there raving about how they found sardines can extend a persons' life til thier 90's. It's said to be rich in nucleotides-- 'the building blocks of DNA and RNA". It improves eyesight in some to where they no longer need bifocals to read. takes away joint pain and stiffness, asthma, contains more protien than steak, more potassium than bananas, more iron than cooked spinach, is loaded with CoEnzyme Q10, fights free radicals, helps maintain healthy gums, is one of the best source of omega 3 oils, rich in calcium and vitamin D, increases skin elasticity, the body's ability to repair itself, enhances effects of other anti-oxidants, improves the response and efficiency of the immune system and increases cellular metabolism to name just a few of what good sardines do.
Most types of Oysters also have a high nucleotide content as does Brewers yeast, lentils, anchovies, oysters, mackerel and most types of beans, animal liver, Chlorella and Spirulina.--but sardines have the highest level of all.
Also- Sardines are low in mercury because they are tiny. Chlorella is a mercury spongue- and many larger fish absorb mercury in their bodies-- so to eat them and be safe from mercury , you have to eat them with Algin supplements so your body wont collect the mercury from them.
The newsletter continues to state that sardines are not supposed to smell "fishy". If they do, it's because the company packaged sardines that were going bad. also, 40 years ago- the fish packing companies lobbied and won the right to package any small bone fish- like herring, brislings, sprats, etc. etc., and call them "sardines" on their labels in North America.
True sardines come from Mediterranian waters and taste awesome in a little olive oil, squeezed lemon and garlic.
They have a really high protien content too.
Oysters, other shellfish and crusteceans are scavenger fish and collect the ocean garbage into their little bodies- including heavy metals and oil from oil spills, etc, etc. I read somewhere it's a good idea to not eat them- even though they are a popular luxury food in America. i'ts probably really healthy to eat caviar though-- (fish eggs) but the thought of that makes me sick!
