I’m commenting on this page about Papaya/papain enzyme warnings in relation to the info on Progesterone. I am enthusiastic about using the greenish papaya and seeds on a periodic basis for parasite cleansing, and following the protocol frequency mentioned but have some concern about the potential negative effect on body progesterone levels. For the last 6 years or so and I’m 60 now, I use progesterone cream (the only very good organic one from Organic Excellence) on a 3 week on, 1 week off basis. Older people, even men can benefit from some progesterone in its natural form as our bodies make much less or none as we age. Of course, everyone will be different in how much papain and periodic use of the parasite smoothie will affect their progesterone levels but just wondering if you have more info on specifics of that in particular? The idea I came up with is to drink or start a 4 day course of papaya smoothie for parasites during the progesterone off week, then only 1 or 2 the following week, skip and repeat after 2 weeks. There must be a way to have it all, but I think for most women using papain enzymes on any regular basis would not be a good idea as the effects of estrogen dominance and low progesterone is something to be avoided or remedied if one has that imbalance (likely in case of PMS).
In 2003, Alan Murray, who at the time was Washington bureau chief for CNBC and a co-host of the television program Capital Report, declared the debate over supply-side economics to have ended "with a whimper" after extensive modeling performed by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicted that the revenue generating effects of the specific tax cuts examined would be, in his words, "relatively small."  Murray also suggested that Dan Crippen may have lost his chance at reappointment as head of the CBO over the dynamic scoring issue.
The Tartrazine group revealed a significant decrease in the concentration of brain neurotransmitters as well as a sharp decline in the level of antioxidants in their brains. These include super oxide dismutase, catalase and reduced glutathione. There were also numerous apoptotic cells in the brain cortex compared with the other groups that received royal jelly, water or cod liver oil. Apoptotic cells are cells that are 'committing suicide' or dying. Higher levels of these cells indicated that the Yellow # 4 was likely causing the cells to self destruct.
