Hemp Can Repair DNA!

Did you know that DNA can be damaged…and repaired?

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is the hereditary material found in humans, animals, and organisms. DNA is in every cell in our bodies. Each cell’s nucleus has DNA, which is rolled into structures that are our chromosomes (23 pairs).

Most genes contain the information needed to make functional molecules called proteins. (A few genes produce other molecules that help the cell assemble proteins.) The journey from gene to protein is complex and tightly controlled within each cell. It consists of two major steps: transcription and translation. Together, transcription and translation are known as gene expression.

During the process of transcription, the information stored in a gene’s DNA is transferred to a similar molecule called RNA (ribonucleic acid) in the cell nucleus. Both RNA and DNA are made up of a chain of nucleotide bases, but they have slightly different chemical properties. The type of RNA that contains the information for making a protein is called messenger RNA (mRNA) because it carries the information, or message, from the DNA out of the nucleus into the cytoplasm.” (http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov)

The genes direct protein production. For example, a protein (a long chain of amino acids) can be an enzyme that triggers a certain chemical reaction in the body. One function of protein is to boost the immune system.

There are many factors that cause damaged DNA : oxidation, UV radiation from the sun, radiation from Xrays, viruses, plant toxins, and man-made chemicals (chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, hydrocarbons, smoke, pollution, to name a few). Some results of damaged DNA are: premature aging, cancer, diabetes mellitus (diabetes itself may cause DNA damage), Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many other conditions.

Cells cannot function properly if the DNA is damaged. However, the cells CAN, through chemical processes, reverse the damage themselves.

Hempseed and hempseed oil have been found to be a factor in DNA repair. Hemp has the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega fatty acids (Omega 3 and Omega 6) needed by the human body. One ‘job’ of Omega 3 is cellular repair. Hemp is 65% protein, 35% of which is globulin edestin protein. It is the protein that is closest to human globulin, and is very easily digestible by the body.

The protein is a major factor in DNA repair, as the cells use that protein to correct the DNA damage.

Because hemp is the highest source of Edestin protein, AND is responsible for boosting the immune system, it is a perfect addition to the the diet.

        Easy to remember- “you are” = “you’re”
        You only use “your” to describe something that belongs to “you.”

        You just said “you have a moron.” I believe you meant “you are a moron,” in which case you use “you’re” not “your.”

        You only use “your” when you’re (see? here I just used the shortened version of “you are”) saying- your car, your house, your place. You wouldn’t say “you are car,” “you are house,” or “you are place” now would you? So that’s what “your” is used for.

    This article provides much needed relief from the horror of the onslaught of GMO’s that Obama has been forcing on the world. We may just overcome the 1% yet!

    We are perfectly capable of electing someone for president who is not against legalizing hemp. But corporate puppets like team Obama/Romney, are equally fatal to our human rights and democracy, without which we will never be able to legalize hemp. If either are elected this last time, its over.

    • Anonymous says:

      you think we elect the president?
      errrrnt.
      they are appointed.
      the only solution is to stop voting in national elections.
      if everyone did this it would bring the house of cards down.

      • Anonymous says:

        Yes, we do elect the President! The issue is that neither DEMS or GOP are representing thje better interests of their constituants, but for making themselves and their cronies STINKING RICH AND POWERFUL.

        You are basically given the choice of being bitten by a cobra or a rattlesnake. The Dems plan is to enslave you through BIG GOVERNMENT, The GOP uses BIG BUISNESS, both to the same end.

          you are electing nobody your “presidents” are appointed by your jewish masters lets face it you are run by the filthy jews

    I think the real moron is the one who tries to insult people but clearly doesn’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re” so anonymous person, YOU’RE a moron. And even if you disagree with his response or feel it’s misguided you added no corrective information of YOUR own so why bother? You should try to help better inform people if you feel or know they’re wrong not merely put them down for an idea.

    • walt says:

      Personally, I think it was funny, but then I’m not so serious about such things.

      Anyway: This evidence for Hemp is just another reason the government will not allow the people to use it- the government prefers us sick and in control.

  4. political wzrd says:

    I have two things to say.
    Both are very important, and I don’t give a fuck what you think about them.
    First off, why the hell do you people fight on comment boards?
    Do you really lack that much self control?
    Take a look at your birth certificates, because you guys are acting like twelve-year-olds when you fight online.
    Secondly, to Walt.
    While it is going to be difficult to even get hemp decriminalized nationwide, the battle is not hopeless. We as Human Beings, for the first time in centuries, are starting to band together despite our different governments and geographies. We as people are starting to realize that our causes are very much alike, from everywhere to USA, to Brazil, to Israel, to Iran.
    You just have to ask the people, not the powers.

    I also have a great feeling about the next 30 years. We have many young politically minded men and women (Constitutionalists and Libertarians, especially) who haven’t even grabbed their degrees yet.
    Remember, when these old bastards die, we’re the ones who call the shots.
    And if they are anything like me, they won’t dare sell out their people.
    Because frankly, I don’t know you guys, but whether you believe in science or religion, at one point, we’re all brothers and sisters, and I can’t bring myself to hurt family.

    • Anonymous says:

      Good for you political wzrd! People stop all the nonsense replies. If you don’t have something constructive to reply then kindly keep your insults to yourselves.

    • Anonymous says:

      You’re exactly right brother! We might be down now because our fathers have been blinded by power and greed. You and I both know soon enough we will be in charge, and with people like me and you will fight for what is right. We want to see our brothers and sisters better themselves, not beat them down because they are less fortunate. We will rise, we will better the human race!

  5. Lily says:

    Many different methods can repair damaged DNA. Hemp is just another tool for this. Good ol’ hemp.

  6. Not so sure says:

    Well yes God bless all things good from nature. These pukes that play the role of dictator in chief or slime minister are only there to serve the corptacracy. There is no government as in for the people, by the people and of the people. The ones who believe they are free are the most enslaved.

    The problem as I see it for a FREE HUMANITY is that the evil bastards that are in the high places and have been for some time are not gonna give up the power without a fight and they have control of weapons sci-fi hasn’t even thought of yet!! Do you KNOW how to make 2 towers turn into dust in under 15 seconds?? I don’t but I saw it happen. If you get to close to answering that question you might inexplicably develop pancreatic cancer or possibly drown in your pool, or end up in a jersey land fill.

    Ahh I’m off topic sorry folks, obviously they can’t have you curing cancer from a plant you could grow with ease in your own backyard. What would big pharma do with all you healthy and happy serfs running around free range on the plantation?? I say eff them grow what you want, ingest what you want and in the end you only have God to answer to not man playing god.

    One question, why are these miracle products so dammed expensive???
