Scientific Study Links Bacon To Cancer

By Health Nation, Denver, CO
Nutritionist Keith Gilabert says “Scientific study suggests 2 slices of bacon a day increases a person’s risk of developing cancer.”

Scientists have found that small amounts of processed meat increase the chance of developing pancreatic cancer. 

Nutritionist Keith Gilabert says, “What makes processed meats so deadly is that they are made with Sodium Nitrite.   This chemical is used to cure meat products and has been implicated as a cancer causing agent.  If you have ever consumed a ham sandwich, then you have been exposed to this chemical.”  Gilabert says, “what is most troubling is that all nutrition experts know of this risk with processed meats but nearly all school lunch programs currently serve schoolchildren meat products containing sodium nitrite, that is why we are seeing cancer rates skyrocket.”

The USDA actually tried to ban sodium nitrite in the 1970’s but was preempted by the meat processing industry.

Pancreatic cancer kills 80 percent of people in under a year of being diagnosed due to the symptoms being vague – such as back pain, loss of appetite and weight loss.  By the time the disease is diagnosed it is often too late, only 3 percent of patients live beyond five years.

Sodium nitrite is an FDA approved food additive.  It is used to extend shelf life and inhibit growth of the bacteria that causes botulism. 

Now scientists in Sweden have found that eating just 50g of processed meat a day raises the likely hood of cancer by almost 20%.  Gilabert says, “50g a day of meat is equivalent to 3 slices of ham.”

Overall, small amounts of cured meats containing sodium nitrite are not likely to cause cancer.  If you want to avoid sodium nitrite altogether there are many nitrite free products.  Gilabert adds,” look for products labeled uncured, one sausage product I am very impressed with is Aidells all natural sausage.  Theses sausages are made with no msg, nitrites or hormones, I serve these to my kids.”

Eating a diet that is high in fruits and vegetables, especially when eaten raw, is the most essential thing we can do for our health. Those that are rich in fiber are especially good for the behind. The fruits and vegetables that are highest in fiber include:

* Avocados

* Peas

* Broccoli

* Brussels sprouts

* Cabbage

* Carrot

* Chick Peas/Garbanzo Beans

* Eggplant

* Greens - collards, kale, turnip greens

* Mushrooms

* Pumpkin

* Peppers

* Rhubarb

* Spinach

* Sweet Potatoes

Regular exercise, healthy eating and a positive attitude are generally known to stave off all forms of cancer.

Keith Gilabert: Facebook and Twitter Will Decide GOP Candidate

By BentleyForbes Analytics , Beverly Hills, CA

“It’s official, Facebook and Twitter will decide the next GOP candidate,” says Keith Gilabert Executive Director of BentleyForbes Analytics.  As the GOP candidates are getting ready for another round of low blows and finger pointing this weekend in New Hampshire, Facebook will be streaming the presidential primary debate though a partnership with NBC News.

 Mitt Romney’s victory was on paper only.  Many observers state the race was to close to call according to the AP Press.  Romney won the Iowa GOP by 8 votes over Rick Santorum, more than 122,000 ballots were cast, a record for Iowa Republicans.  With such a close race the New Hampshire primary should make the action much more interesting.

Gilabert says “the GOP Candidates are using social media more than ever before.  Their views and positions can be viewed on such sites as Facebook.com and Twitter.com which rank in the top ten on google.com search results.”  President Obama’s 2008 campaign changed the way we view social media and it’s relations to getting potential voters to act.

The Meltwater Group is currently monitoring the candidate’s campaigns by tracking and analyzing posts on blogs, Facebook and Twitter.  Gilabert says, “this is an excellent way to monitor word cloud and the candidates can use this tool in a very effective way by fine tuning the messages they are sending and getting real time feedback.” 

The Pew Internet & American Life Project has reported the 2008 election for the first time “more than half the voting-age population used the internet to connect to the political process during an election cycle.”

A recent survey by Digitas, found that 61 percent of adults expect the candidates of the 2012 U.S. presidential election to have a social media presence.  Almost have of the respondents stated they will base their decisions on information found on social media sites such as Facebook. Com and Twitter.com.  According to Digitas, 88 percent of U.S. adults that are social media users are also registered voters.   

President Obama already has a strong presence on social media.  President Obama’s campaign also started a page on Myspace.com with over 110 million members in 2008.  He is on 15 social networking sites and has over 5 million friends, 3 million of those friends on Facebook alone.  As reported by The Social Pulpit:  Barack Obama’s Social Media Toolkit, by Edelman, President Obama started a profile on AsianAve.com, MiGente.com and BlackPlanet.com. 

The Edelman toolkit explains that during Obama’s campaign to the White House, nearly 2,000 YouTube.com videos were watched more than 80,000 times.  Gilabert explains, “this allowed people to watch content by the Obama campaign as well as user generated content, this strategy gave the people the feeling they have a voice that is being heard.”  Posts on Youtube.com opened the doors to discussions from the neighbor around the corner to the voter across the country.  “President Obama’s campaign could challenge any opposition head-on by posting a video at any time or place, social media has become a very powerful tool” says Gilabert.

Through the use of social media, President Obama shaped the future of elections.  Social media such as Facebook and Twitter has become a part of our lives, and future candidates will have to incorporate these sites into their campaigns if they want to win.

Keith Gilabert on BofA Foreclosure Rentals

Keith Gilabert for BentleyForbes Analytics - Bank of America has stated they may rent back foreclosures to former owners.  I think this is a terrible move by BofA because if the owner couldn't make the mortgage payment, what makes you think this person will make rent payments.  Keep in mind, to get foreclosed on this borrower has to default by not making a single payment in 9 months.

In my humble opinion, if a person cannot make mortgage payment in 9 months what makes you think they can make a rent payment??

I think the appropriate move for BofA would be to stop floating bad loans and purge their mortgage portfolios of all the non-performing assets and start with a clean slate.

The banks have been holding this ghost inventory of homes hoping the housing market improves but it hasn't and it won't.   The US economy has not created any jobs or industry in the last 4 years.  There is no catalyst for wealth so were is the consumer going to find the money to buy a home? The housing market has dropped 10% in 2011 on average and will drop another 10% in 2012.  I think the housing market may stop falling by the end of 2013.  I am in no rush to buy and with patience of capital you can find a good deal out there if you're thinking of buying a home.
