  • Garlics support against the common cold

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    We love garlic as a therapeutic food supplement.  It has such a broad spectrum of applications, particularly as an antimicrobial.

    Garlic and onion have been used in traditional medicine against bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral infections.  The antibiotic properties of onion were recognized by Louis Pasteur in 1858 (Pasteur, 1868).  Scientific studies documenting the antibiotic activity of garlic began to appear early in the 20th century (Reuter, 1996).

    The antibiotic activity of allicin from fresh garlic juice can be shown in Petri dish demonstrations.  If, for example, filter paper disks containing dilutions of fresh garlic juice are placed on a Petri dish containing an agar-agar growth medium inoculated with the E. coli bacterium, it can be shown that as little as 84 mcg of allicin give a clear inhibition zone. Using the same procedure with many different yeast, allicin is more inhibitory as an antifungal than Nystattin (Arora, 1999).

    Of late, we have heard from many of you that many people are dealing with difficult to get rid of common colds—runny nose, excess mucus, congested chest, cough—it is time to give garlic a try.

    In a 2001 trial, 146 volunteers were randomized to receive a placebo or an allicin-containing garlic supplement, one capsule daily, over a 12 week period.  [That would certainly cover the flu and cold season.]  The active-treatment group had significantly fewer colds than the placebo group—24 vs. 65. The placebo group, in contrast, recorded significantly more days challenged virally—366 vs. 111, and significantly longer duration of symptoms—5.01 vs. 1.52. For further reading, see Peter Joslin, Preventing the Common Cold with a Garlic Supplement: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Survey, Advances in Therapy, Vol. 18, No. 4, July/August 2001.

    The common cold is the world's most widespread viral infection with the majority of people suffering approximately two to five colds per year.  A powerful garlic supplement could be your best friend.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Clinical Notes:

    The BioImmersion Therapeutic Foods Organic Garlic supplement contains 4 to 5 cloves of raw freeze-dried cloves per capsule.  Each clove is assayed at 20,000 plus ppm alliin—that is extremely potent (high potency garlic starts at 10,000ppm alliin).

    We recommend at the start of feeling a cold coming on opening a capsule in water and mixing, let it sit for half a minute and then drinking it. For sore throat, create the same solution and gargle with it before swallowing.  That way you are treating the whole mucus membrane from the mouth down.  Of course, if you take the capsule with water, then you are treating the stomach and lower bowel and as its absorbed systemically going after the virus. A great addition is to mix the garlic with a probiotic such as the Original or No 7 Systemic Booster.

    Cape Buffaloes, what a magnificent beast.  Don't you agree?  In a Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom special a South African hunter turned conservationist gave some interesting tidbits regard Cape Buffaloes.

    1.  They have exceptional memories.  I have often been approached by buffalo that I have not seen for many years, which are tactile and demand affection.
    2.  A buffalo has four times the strength of an ox, according to research by Dr. John Conde.
    3.  The adage an elephant never forgets would be matched by a buffalo never forgives.  They have been known to attack people that have harmed them even years after the event.

  • Compelling anticancer evidence

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    When we look at the trials regarding cruciferous sprout's ability to support anticancer initiatives, they are very encouraging, as we have seen in the last two week. Today, we will add the epidemiological data, and its compelling—Cruciferous Sprouts help to prevent cancer.

    What do the epidemiological studies say?

    A major prospective dietary study, the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), followed the dietary habits and health of 521,468 subjects in 10 European countries between 1991-2000. After an average followup of 8.7 years, 1,830 people were diagnosed with lung cancer. Regular consumption of cauliflower and cabbage by current smokers was associated with a 23% reduction in the risk for squamous cells carcinoma of the lung. The study also found an almost 50% reduced risk of cancer of the upper digestive tract (oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, and esophagus) among people who ate the most cauliflower and cabbage (34 g/day) compared with those who ate the least (3 g/day).

    Another large prospective study of more than 35,000 women living in Iowa and followed for 20 years found a 18% reduced risk for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among workmen who had the highest consumption of at least 4 servings/month of broccoli was associated with a 28% risk reduction for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

    In a separate study of nearly 67,000 women in the Nurses' Health Study, more frequent dietary intake of broccoli (at least 2 servings/week) was associated with a 33% risk reduction for ovarian cancer.

    (Li et al, Tumor Angiogenesis as a Target for Dietary Cancer Prevention, Journal of Oncology, Vol 2012, Article ID 879623, 23 pages.)

    The glucosinolate levels in cruciferous sprouts is a 100 times that of the mature plant.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Clinical Notes:

    Cruciferous Sprouts Complex contains:  broccoli sprouts, Daikon Radish Sprouts, Red Radish Sprouts, Water Cress Sprouts, Kale Sprouts, Mustard Sprouts, and Cabbage Sprouts yielding 10,000ppm glucosinolates.

    Glucosinolates are the precursors to isothiocyanates.  Sulforaphane is a class of isothiocyanates.

    Take two capsules daily away from food.

  • Cruciferous Sprouts anticancer support

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    In last weeks April 2nd Forward Thinking we explained how our Cruciferous Sprouts Complex provides sulforaphanes and how sulforaphanes help protect the body from developing cancer.

    We mentioned two trials, both demonstrating the anti-cancer power of sulphaphanes.  Each of these trials highlighted sulphoraphanes ability to crucially influence different transcription factors in ways that prevent cancer—enhancing one and inhibiting another.  Let's look deeper.

    In the first trial sulphoraphanes inhibited Hypoxic-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1a).  HIF-1a is one of the most compelling anticancer targets for it is essential for angiogenesis and is associated with tumor progression.  Therefore, its inhibition is critical.

    In the second trial sulphoraphane activated the expression of FOXO Transcription factor. Expression of active forms of FOXO in tumor cells prevents tumor growth in vivo.

    In Wednesday's newsletter we will look at very robust epidemiological studies relative to cruciferous vegetables support in cancer prevention.  Their results are very confirmative.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Once you've click on the above, click to the right on the live eagle cam.  When we think of eagles we think of them as belonging to North America.  But in reality there are only two species, the bald eagle and the goldern eagle that reside in the US and Canda.  More than sixty species of eagles are from Eurasia and Africa.

     

     

    A Guard to Egg Carton Labels

    There is a lot of label claims when is comes to eggs: Certified Organic ... Raised Without Antibiotics ... Omega-3 Enriched ... Free-Range/Free-Roaming ... Etc.  Interesting, in 2007 a Mother Earth News study found that hens that got to hunt, peck and graze outdoors on their natural diets had 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 2/3 more vitamin A, 2 times more Omega-3 Fatty Acids, 3 times more vitamin E and 7 times more Beta Carotene.  The very essence of Therapeutic Foods.  These were under the label of:  Pature-Raise/Pastured.  See the link above.

  • Cruciferous Sprouts help prevent cancer

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    Each Cruciferous Sprouts Complex capsules is loaded with glucosinolates.  And, when hydrated in the stomach the enzyme myrosinase reacts with glucosinolates to produce the bioactive molecules isothiocyanate and indole-3-carbinol, both of which are antiangiogenic.  So what?

    Angiogenesis is a critical, rate limiting step, in the development of all know cancers. (William Li 2012)

    Sulforaphane is a type of isothiocyanate and acts in the following ways:

    • Inactivation of hypoxia inducible factor-1 alpha. (Yoa et al., Sulforaphane inhibited expression of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha in human tongue squamous cancer cells and prostate cancer cells, International Journal of Cancer, vol. 123, no. 6, pp. 1255-1261, 2008)
    • Activation of FOXO transcription factors. (Davis et al., Sulforaphane inhibits angiogenesis through activation of FOXO transcription factors, Oncology Reports, vol. 22, no. 6, pp. 1473-1478, 2009)
    • Promotion of endothelial cell apoptosis. (asakage et al., Sulforaphane induces inhibition of human umbilical vein endothelial cells proliferation by apoptosis, Angiogenesis, vol. 9, no. 2, pp. 83-91)

    Indole-3-carbinol inhibits endothelia cell proliferation tube formation and induces apoptosis.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Clinical Notes:

    Cruciferous Sprouts Complex contains:  broccoli sprouts, Daikon Radish Sprouts, Red Radish Sprouts, Water Cress Sprouts, Kale Sprouts, Mustard Sprouts, and Cabbage Sprouts yielding 10,000ppm glucosinolates.

    When the sprouts are crushed, the enzyme myrosinase is able to react with the glucosinolate. You are familiar with this reaction as we discussed this similiar process in our garlic when the clove is crushed and the alliin if able to react with the enzyme alliinase to form allicin the bioactive antimicrobial compound.

    All of these reactions are best to occur at the time of taking the product. Take with plenty fluids so that the bioactive molecules sulforaphane, indole-3-carbinol, or allicin are at their peak of potency.

    Take the Cruciferous away from food; 2 to 4 capsules daily.

    The Last Quiz Answer:

    Catfish are found worldwide even in the remote places of Mozambique.  They have no scales and can grow to 6 feet long.  The largest specimens on record measure more than 8 feet and weigh 220 pounds.  They have no scales.  They have widely been caught and farmed for food for hundreds of years in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.

    The vast majority of catfish are harmless to humans, a few species are known to present some risk. Many catfish species have "stings" embedded behind their fins; thus precations must be taken when handling them.

  • Cruciferous Sprouts Complex protects from COPD

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    The Broccoli Sprout Extract Trial for COPD began April 8th 2011 and will conclude this June of 2014.  We are pleased to find yet another condition that the Cruciferous Sprouts Complex is able to prevent and support in the treatment of COPD.

    Sponsored by Johns Hoplkins University with collaborators at Temple University, the investigators' group has evidence showing that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients have impairment of antioxidant defenses which are caused by a defect in activity of Nrf2—a gene whose activity protects the body from COPD.

    Their trial has focused on sulforaphane, a derivative of cruciferous vegetables, which is a potent stimulator of Nrf2 activity.  Their goal is to determine the effectiveness of two doses, 25 and 150 micromoles, for 4 weeks in 90 COPD patients. (NIH Research Matters: Broccoli Compound May Combat COPD)

    This all is very exciting for our Cruciferous Sprout Complex as it supply exactly what is needed.  COPD is of growing concern, it is the third leading cause of death nationwide. According to the WHO, 65 million people worldwide have COPD. Data from The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in 2000 showed that 24 million people in the United States had impaired lung function that might indicate COPD. Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Clinical Notes:

    We developed our Cruciferous Sprouts Complex with the glucosinolate family of phytochemical potency and power in mind.  Glucosinolates are precursor molecules to sulforaphanes.  At the time we were focusing on P2Ps (Phase 2 Proteins).  These Phase 2 Enzymes are responsible for phase 2 liver detox.  We were able to show in our two pilot studies on human liver cell that ingesting capsules BID will increase phase 2 enzyme production by 2.6 times in 20 days.  This was very encouraging when considering the liver's detoxification ability.

    We also had in mind cancer prevention or protection with this product.  I will cover that in Wednesday's email.

    The Last Quiz Answer:

    This magnificent bird is the Great White Pelican.  It is a huge bird.  The wingspan can range from 7.41  to 11.81 feet.  The enormous bill can be 1.5 feet.  Adult males can weight as much as 30 pounds.  In flight it is an elegant soaring bird with the head held close to and aligned with the body by a downward bend in the neck.

    They are found around the world including the shallow swamps of remote, unexploded Mozambique.  Pelicans are not restricted to eating fish.  In some situations they eat the eggs and chicks of other birds.  Great White Pelicans also eat crustaceans, tadpoles and even turtles.

     

     

     

    Many cattle, hog and poultry producers give their animals antibiotics regularly to make the animals grow faster and keep them alive in overcrowded, unclean conditions.  This overuse of antibiotic creates a breading ground for drug-resistant bacteria.

    Last Fall the Center for Disease Control and Prevention released estimates that more than 23,000 people a year are dying from drug-resistant infections.  According to the FDA twenty-five pharmaceutical companies are voluntarily phasing out the use of antibiotics for growth promotion in animals processed for meat.  (See Huffpost Green- After Fears of Antibiotic Resistance, 25 Drug Companies to Phase out Use in Livestock)

  • Phyto Powers support for lowering BP

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    Need a great natural product to support the lowering of high blood pressure for your patients in need?
    Phyto Power is a great choice.

    Flavanol-rich diets have been reported to exert beneficial effects in preventing cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension.  Phyto Power's rosehip seeds are rich in the flavanols catechin and epicatechin.

    In their research entitled:   Epicatechin lowers blood pressure, restores endothelial function, and decreases oxidative stress and endothelin-1 and NADPH oxidase activity in DOCA-salt hypertension, (Free Radic Biol Med 2012 Jan1;52(1):70-9) — Gomez-Guzman et al concluded that epicatechin prevents hypertension, proteinuria and vascular dysfunction.  Epicatechin also induced a reduction in ET-1 release, systemic and vascular oxidative stress, and inhibition of NADPH oxidase activity.

    Sourcing for products with high actives is important.  Here is a comparison of the flavanol content of our Alaskan wildcrafted rosehip used in Phyto Power with that of the dog rose from Germany and Europe:  Alaskan Rosehip catechin = 72.05 mg/g verses the Dog Rose = 35.70 mg/g, and the Alaskan Rosehip epicatechin = 67.50 mg/g verses 33.7 mg/g for the Dog Rose.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Clinical Notes:

    Taking two Phyto Power capsules a day, gives you the equivalent of eating 6 of these precious rose hips from the wild.  You are getting the whole rosehip, seeds and all.

  • Phyto Power's Anticancer support

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    The effects of ellagic acid on cell cycle events and apoptosis were studied in cervical carcinoma cells and were found to be very effective in inducing G1 arrest.

    Many cancers including breast and skin cancers have been prevented from proliferating by causing the tumor cells to enter G1 arrest, preventing the cells from dividing and spreading.

    Ellagic acid is a phenolic compound present in fruits and nuts including raspberries, strawberries and walnuts.  It is very concentrated in Rosehip, which can be found in the BioImmersion's Phyto Power with three species of wildcrafted very potent Alaskan Rosehip.

    See Narayanan B. et al, “p53/p21 (WAF1/CIP1) expression and its possible role in G1 arrest and apoptosis in ellagic acid treated cancer cells,” Cancer Letters, vol. 136, issue 2, pp. 215-221, 1999.

    Both catechins (found in the rosehips seeds), and Vitamin C with its naturally attached bioflavonoids are found in Phyto Power's rosehips in high amounts.  These too are wonderful anti-cancer phyto nutrients.

    It is easy to see why we are excited about Phyto Power.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Clinical Notes:

    Taking two Phyto Power capsules a day, gives you the equivalent of eating 6 of these precious rose hips from the wild.  You are getting their seeds and all, which are extremely rich in catechins, another category of phytonutrients with strong cancer prevention properties.

    Areas of Mozambique, north of the Zambezi River, are largely unexplored ornithologically. This amazing bird comes from Mount Mabu and ‘the Google forest’ area— the largest rainforest in southern Africa.  The rainforest of Mount Mabu covers approximately 7,880 hectares in total, and has revealed a number of species that were previously unknown to science.

    I remember as a child lovingly collecting the beautiful bird stamps from Mozambique.  Over the next few weeks we will be highlight animals from this region, many of them birds.  This beautiful creature is the Roseate Spoonbill.

  • Control your sugar intake!

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    Several of the Therapeutic Food products help to prevent high blood sugar levels and the resultant development of insulin resistance?  See the Clinical Notes below.

    A global estimate for diabetes in 1997 was 124 million people world wide.  By the year 2010 the total number of people with diabetes was projected to reach 221 million. (Amos AF et al. The rising global burden of diabetes and its complications 1997 Diabetic Medicine).

    It's 2014 and the total is 284 million with diabetes worldwide!

    More that 20 million people worldwide suffer from dementia, and this number is expected to exceed 80 million by 2040 because of the rapid increase in the numbers of elderly (ferri et al. 2005).

    Several recent studies have indicated effects of insulin and glucose metabolism on the risk of developing dementia, especially Alzheimer's Disease (AD).  In fact, people that have insulin resistance, in particular those with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of suffering from Alzheimer's disease estimated to be between 50% and 65% higher.

    Researchers have discovered that many type 2 diabetics have deposits of a protein called amyloid beta in their pancreas which is similiar to the protein deposits found in the brain tissue of Alzheimer's sufferers.  Hence, Alzheimer's is being proposed as type 3 diabetes.

    Bottomline, we need to control the rate of sugar infusion from our diet into our bloodstream.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Clinical Notes:

    Therapeutic Foods that help maintain healthy blood sugar levels:

    • Beta Glucan Synbiotic Formula- take one tablespoon before your largest carbohydrate meal of the day.  The beta glucan soluble fibers are highly viscous and slow down the absorption of the carbohydrates.
    • Number 4 Systemic Booster- take 1 capsule 1/2 hour before your two largest meals of the day.  The flavonoid extracts from the two seaweeds extend the absorption time of carbohydrate from a meal into the blood stream by an hour.
    • Chromium with Beet- take one capsule twice a day to lower blood sugar levels.

    The Last Quiz Answer:

    This beautiful butterfly comes from Mount Mabu and ‘the Google forest’— the largest rainforest in southern Africa.  The rainforest of Mount Mabu overs approximately 7,880 hectares in total, and has revealed a number of species that were previously unknown to science.  This all was discovered in January of 2006.  So far, only around a fifth of the forest has been surveyed for its biodiversity, and scientists believe there are many more discoveries to be made.  Four new species of butterfly have so far been discovered at Mount Mabu.  Like most of the world's rainforests there is increasing pressure around its perimeter with slashing and burning agriculture and indiscriminant killing of its fauna. Fortunately, Fauna and Flora International (FFI) has been working to establish a management strategy for Mabu to establish a protected area recognised by Mozambique's provincial and national government.

  • Energy Sustain and Regularity

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    How many grams of fiber do we need each day?

    Every day we hear complaints of constipation, bloating, and dissatisfaction with how the bowels work. We know that fiber is important, but do we take enough??

    Katie Ferraro, Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco and University of San Diego analyzes in her article—Fiber is the Future—the best diets of 2014.

    The Energy Sustain Complex is a strong balancer of the GI track. It was not only formulated to add a gluten free seeds and grain punch to our protein or meal replacement shakes, but also to add 7.66 grams of fibers; both soluble and insoluble. It is gently cooked to remove oxalates and phytates, which can be problematic.

    I have asked a health practitioner who has become an avid purchaser of our Energy Sustain, what is the biggest benefit that has manifested for her patients.  She said without hesitation—relief from chronic constipation.

    I've heard this praise before from our customers more and more lately as practitioners are discovering this unique formula, and thought that now was a good time to pass it on to you!

    What is the complex composed of?

    • Organic Amaranth
    • Organic Quinoa
    • Organic Chia
    • Organic Buckwheat
    • Organic Millet

    How much fiber is in a serving of the Energy Sustain?

    • 7.66 g dietary fiber per 30 gram serving.

    It's a good start especially if you take it in the morning as an ingredient added to a smoothie.

    What's our morning smoothie consist of?

    • One scoop of the Energy Sustain Complex- 7.66 grams dietary fiber.
    • One heaping tablespoon of whey protein- less than 1 gram dietary fiber.
    • One heaping tablespoon of Beta Glucan Synbiotic Formula- 4 grams of dietary fiber.
    • One heaping tablespoon of whole dry Organic Coconut- 10grams of dietary fiber.
    • Organic pineapple juice- zero fiber
    • Water

    Our drink gives us 21.66 grams of fiber and our day's barely begun.  That is enough for a female.  Males should get at least 30 gram per day.  The average American diet delivers 11grams of fiber daily.

    Sincerely yours,

    Seann Bardell

    Why not swig down our Antiangiogenic Protocol from last Fridays newsletter with the above Energy Sustain Smoothie.

    • Phyto Power- Contains rosehip, blueberry and dandelion (all Alaskan wildcrafted product with very powerful high actives).  Two capsules daily.
    • Cruciferous Sprouts Complex- densely packed with glucosinolates.  Two capsules daily
    • High ORAC Synbiotic Formula- contains grape and grape seed extract, raspberry and raspberry seed extract, wild blueberry extract, wild bilberry extract, tart cherry, cranberry and prune + 25 billion of two pedigreed probiotics.  Take one capsule daily.

    The Last Quiz Answer:

    This amazing animal is  the Thompson's Gazelle.  To avoid predators they are nibble and very fast runners (would you believe 60 miles per hour top speed). They also use bounding leaps, as seen in the picture.  They can be 4 feet at the shoulder, weigh 165 pounds (that is a very big one) and live to 12 years.  Their head would be at the level of a six foot person's chest.  They are a medium size gazelle of which there are 19 different species.  They live in herds which can consist of as few as ten or as many as several hundred animals.  There are an estimated dwindling population of 550,000.

     

     

     

     

    Toddlers and young children are fatter today.  Why?

    One reason according to Martin J. Blaser, the director of the Human Microbiome Program and a professor of medicine and microbiology at NYU, is that children's diets have gotten a lot richer in recent decades and they often are prescribed antibiotics.  Frequent antibiotics + increased caloric diets = obese children.  This phenomena is easy to see as a fattening strategy in the animal feed industry with chickens, pigs and cattle, and easily duplicated in rat research studies.  See Dr. Blaser's new book, coming out in April:

    Missing Microbes:  How the Overuse of Antibiotics is Fueling Our Modern Plagues.

  • Cancer Prevention

    Dear Friends

    Can you idenitify this beautiful creature? Can you identify this beautiful creature?

    We are so very excited about Li et al. (2012) article. It is exactly why we created the  BioImmersion's Therapeutic Foods as they can greatly assist in the support of preventing diseases such as cancer.

    See the powerful collection of antiangiogenic Therapeutic Foods in the Clinical Notes!

    In the United States today men and women have a 43% and 38% chance, respectively, of being diagnosed with any type of cancer during their lifetime (Journal of the National Cancer Institute 2001).

    But there is another condition that we can unmistakedly see in the US population in alarmingly increasing numbers—obesity— both conditions have a common etiology and, that is angiogenesis.

    Angiogenesis is a critical, rate-limiting step in the development of all known cancers. And its inhibition suppresses tumor growth, progression and metastases .  An antiangiogenic diet can play a major role in the prevention of cancer! (Li 2012)

    What is angiogenesis?  It is the phenomena of growth of blood vessels and it is very important to keep it in balance.  In the case of certain diseases especially cancer angiogenesis goes overboard and enables small harmless cancer cells to become metastatic tumors.

    Li et al, in Tumor Angiogeneis as a Target for Dietary Cancer Prevention,(Journal of Oncology, Vo. 2012, Article ID 879623), does a wonderful job of explaining angiogenesis and powerfully makes the case for diet as a strong component in the control of angiogenesis, and for cancer prevention.

    The Last Quiz Answer:

    This amazing African bird is the Yellow-billed Hornbill. They are omnivorous eating both invertebrates and small vertebrates, insects, bird chicks, frogs, chameleons, ants, termites, etc. They are mongamous, breeding for life. When they begin their courtship the male will feed the female for up to a month by bringing her small bits of food. They are characters. Do you remember Zazu?

     

     

    How ridiculous is it!  Regarding the practice of fracking by big oil, the Wyoming Supreme Court is telling a lower court to reconsider whether the public has the right to know the ingredients in the chemical products used to facilitate hydraulic fracturing.  Never mind the fact that this process can contaminate groundwater.  Another source of cancer causing contamination.
