JAMA Raises Concerns about BPA
–Dr. Jamie McManus, M.D., FAAFP
Chairman, Medical Affairs, Health Sciences & Education
BPA – what is it? It is a chemical modifier used in the manufacture of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics typically are clear and hard and have many applications, including use in certain food and beverage packaging such as water and infant bottles, as well as compact discs, impact-resistant safety equipment, and medical devices. About 7 billion pounds of BPA are produced worldwide each year.
Problems BPA causes? cardiovascular disease (coronary heart disease, heart attack, angina), diabetes, liver enzyme abnormalities, brain damage, developmental abnormalities, precancerous changes, metabolic syndrome, etc.
Why BPA causes these problems? Possibly, BPA is a hormone disruptor or modulator and causes pancreatic cells to increase insulin production.
Who is at risk? In 2007, the CDC found BPA in the urine of nearly 93% tested. This indicates widespread exposure to BPA in the US. Who has the highest levels? Children, then females, then males.
Shaklee’s response: Shaklee’s first commitment is to product safety and, as such, our product packaging is free of BPA.
Tips to reduce Exposure to BPA:
- Avoid Reusable Polycarbonate (labeled #7) plastic water and baby bottles, which tend to be hard, clear and colorful. Choose polyethylene or glass.
- Avoid Polycarbonate Plastic Food Containers and Tableware. These may also be labeled “PC” underneath a plastic code #7 in the recycling triangle on the bottom of the container. Use instead: BPA-free plastics with the recycling labels #1, #2, or #4 and #5, ceramic or glass. Soft or cloudy-colored plastic containers do not usually contain BPA.
- Minimize the use of canned food & drink, especially tomato sauces because the high acidity causes more chemical leaching. Choose foods which are fresh, frozen, or stored in glass. The recent study by EWG found BPA in more than half of the 97 canned goods that were tested.
- Ask your dentist for BPA-free sealants and composite fillings.
- Avoid microwaving or heating any food in plastic containers because heat may release chemicals into food.

When the leaves fall, do your airways constrict and sinuses congest? Do your throbbing headaches prevent you from enjoying the fall colors? I remember when my eyes would tear up so badly that a film would cloud my vision and cover my contact lenses. It’d make everything from driving to reading difficult. So, I’d wear my glasses, wipe my eyes and hope for the best. That is, until infection set in.
The allergy whirlwind
- clear, runny nose
- cracking ears
- sore throat
- constricted airways
- constricted sinus cavities
- thicker mucas
- cloudy vision
- neck ache
- swollen glands
- infection sets in
- productivity & focus depletes
Old, broken techniques
Here’s what I used to do…
- blow nose
- wipe eyes
- take allergy meds
- sleep more
- drink more water
- eat comfort food (ie. chocolate malt ball ice-cream)
- wear glasses instead of contacts
- get antibiotics from my doctor
- finish antibiotic cycle
- two weeks later, get antibiotics again
- all fall, winter and spring
- summer was my only hope, untill ragweed blooming. Arggghhh!
Sing a new song. “Free at last!”
I’ve learned some simple and effective techniques to help overcome and avoid this cumbersome cycle. I hope they help you!
- Raise the immune system so histamine isn’t produced when in contact with ‘allergens’. How?
- Avoid sugar (which lowers the immune system and uses up antioxidants).
- Distinguish acquired allergies from actual allergies; avoid actual allergens
- Thin the mucas. How?
- alfalfa (thins mucas, reduces inflamation & raises immunity.)
- What if you’re allergic to grasses? Don’t worry, for most people Shaklee’s alfalfa isn’t allergy causing because we only use the leaves, not the stems of the plant. Also, we only use mature alfalfa leaves so the root systems go deep into the soil. Why is this important? When you take our alfalfa, you get the trace minerals found deep within the earth which can raise your immunity.
- Take acidophilus to thin intestinal mucas. Much of the immune system effectiveness is in the intestine.
- Hydrate with purified water to thin the mucas and avoid infection.
- Avoid mucas producing foods like dairy.
- If congested, irrigate the sinuses immediately. This removes excessive thick mucas, kills infection and reduces inflamation.
- Soothe sore throat with echanacea & zinc
- Kill infection
- Breathe clean air.

To effectively kill infection, it’s important that the product you’re using:
- has no contamination
- is consistantly the same formulation
- has enough active ingredient
- is made with the most pure raw ingredients
- is processed so the enzymes are still alive.
If these specifications aren’t met, the product won’t be strong enough to kill the infection. All of our products exceed these specifications.
FIGHT INFECTION: virus, flu, cold, ear, sinus
Every 5 hours till infection is completely gone:
- 5 garlic
- 2 sustained release vita C (till loose stools, then back down to 3 a day till infection leaves)
- 10 alfalfa
- 3 TBS Energizing Soy Protein
- 20 ounces purified water
- irrigate sinuses (if needed)
- organic onion juice drops in ear if infected (This smells bad but often relieves the pain within 15 minutes.)
If you used an antibiotic, the good flora of the intestine will be destroyed. Be sure to replenish the healthy flora (acidophilus) in intestine before the yeast (Candida) get overgrown. Your choice of acidophilus is important because if it can’t arrive in your intestines alive, pass the hydrochloric acid of the stomach, it won’t help the body. Shaklee’s patented ‘pearl coating’ ensures live flora get delivered to your intestine.

Drop-wrist? Blue line on gums? Anxiety? You may have lead contamination.
The FDA uncovers that lead is found in many vitamins. Shaklee vitamins do not contain lead!
Symptoms and effects
The symptoms of chronic lead poisoning include neurological problems, such as reduced cognitive abilities, or nausea, abdominal pain, irritability, insomnia, metal taste in oral cavity, excess lethargy or hyperactivity, chest pain, headache and, in extreme cases, seizure and coma. There are also associated gastrointestinal problems, such as constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, poor appetite, weight loss, which are common in acute poisoning. Other associated effects are anemia, kidney problems, and reproductive problems.
In humans, lead toxicity sometimes causes the formation of a bluish line along the gums, which is known as the “Burton’s line”, although this is very uncommon in young children. Blood film examination may reveal “basophilic stippling” of red blood cells, as well as the changes normally associated with iron-deficiency anemia (microcytosis and hypochromia). However, basophillic stippling is also seen in unrelated conditions, such as megaloblastic anemia caused by vitamin B12 (colbalamin) and folate deficiencies.
Lead affects the peripheral and central nervous system. The most common sign of peripheral neuropathy due to chronic lead poisoning is painless wristdrop (weakness of the extensor muscles of hand) which usually develops after many weeks of exposure.
A May 2000 study by economic consultant Rick Nevin theorizes that lead exposure explains 65% to 90% of the variation in violent crime rates in the U.S.. A July 2007 paper by the same author claims to show a strong association between preschool blood lead and subsequent crime rate trends over several decades across nine different countries. These results were discussed in a July 2007 Washington Post article, reviving interest in the subject. Nevin’s results reflect peer reviewed findings by Dartmouth Political Scientist Roger D. Masters, and similar work is being done by other researchers. Amherst economist Jessica Reyes’ working paper and Masters’ work are both pre-publication and available online.

10 days to a Better You.
- Cleansing makes people feel better and look younger.
- Because of the chemicals found in food, air, water & environment, glandular systems are crippled, causing depression, obesity, fatigue, & frequently illness.
- No other animal could survive if they ate the chemicals humans eat.
- Even humans that come from indigenous parts of the world become deathly ill when they adopt the “Western” diet.
- Our bodies are sick & polluted, & just like neglected machines, they suffer when not running at peak efficiency.
- Our Master Cleanse can help change that. It’s not magic; it flushes out the waste that’s putting a huge burden on every organ in your body.
- Dr Bernard Jensen explains how internal waste poisons the entire body:
“The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level.”
~ Dr Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D.
Thankfully Our Master Cleanse can eliminate waste and reverse lots of damage.
Tried & failed?
Tried the original Lemonade Master Cleanse (1950s) and failed? Why?
- blood sugar imbalance
- lack of protein
- too many toxins to eliminate
- detox effect
Science has solved these problems by adding specific products & foods.
|our-master-cleanse-recipe 1 serving size. Drink 6-12 a day.
If possible, include a detox therapeutic bath each day.
- To maintain freshness, prepare only enough for 1 day. (6-12 servings each day).
- Keep refrigerated.
- Don’t like spicy drinks? Put cayenne pepper in small capsules (from health stores) & take 1 with each glass of lemonade.

Cleanse to more productivity!
- A balanced metabolism feels better. Cleansing (removing unhealthy chemicals, fats & sugars) increases metabolism efficiency (cells reproduce faster).
- Better cells are produced when better ingredients (protein, vitamins & minerals) are bioavailable in the bloodstream.
- DNA damage (genetic weaknesses) get duplicated as cells reproduce. If genetic weaknesses (caused by the free radical damage, heredity or chemical toxicity) are repaired, the resulting reproduced cells can create healthier organs.
- When protected from unhealthy chemicals, fats & sugars, less problems develop in aging.
- It’s easier to be productive when you feel good!
- What if I want to only use the cleansing items, can I? Yes, but the best results are achieved by jumpstarting the metabolism with the cleanse.
- What if I want to only repair my DNA, can I? Yes. You can add the other products later.
- How long do I cleanse? Cleanse from one month to forever. The longer you cleanse, the stronger your cells will become over the years. I cleanse every day.

A variety of factors can cause the intestine to get ‘clogged’ or coated, leading to mal-absorption or allergy issues.
- insufficient fiber: most Americans eat 5-7 grams of fiber (recommended 25-50 grams)
- Candida overgrowth causing ‘leaky gut’ (microscopic holes in intestinal walls allowing foods to enter bloodstream and causing histamine overproduction & antibody formation)
- insufficient pure water intake
- too much refined sugar
- too many processed foods stripped of live enzymes
- inefficient enzyme production or hydrochloric acid in the stomach
- food allergy / sensitivity causing undigested food to coat the intestine
