Americans get sick more than Europeans and more than other industrialized countries. And they’re getting sicker every year.
Since the mid-1990′s the number of Americans suffering from at least 3 chronic illnesses has nearly doubled. And America’s international ranking for infant mortality and lifespan has also plunged. Read more
Imagine having the ability to prevent up to 3 million childhood deaths every year for under two-pennies.
Optimal levels of vitamin A can actually reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and other chronic illnesses. Recent research has demonstrated that when vitamin A is low, the immune response to foreign invaders is also low.
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the United States during 2010. The DaSilva Institute can help reduce your risk of becoming a statistic by measuring hormone levels, as well as six key estrogen metabolites, including “good” and “bad” estrogens and a biomarker of early breast tumor cell proliferation. In particular the ratio of the “good to bad estrogens” is determined from a single urine specimen. The beauty of knowing these markers is that their harmful effects can be modified with common everyday foods thus giving you the power to decrease your risk of this devastating disease.
The tests used at the DaSilva Institute helps determine your risk of developing Read more
A recent study demonstrated that exposure of human cells to tocotrienols enabled these cells to extend the length of their telomeres, while also rejuvenating the telomerase enzyme that enables the telomere to be replaced as the cell splits and divides. At the same time, tocotrienols prevented damage to DNA.
A telomere is a DNA sequence that lies at the very end of a chromosome. It functions to not only protect the end of the chromosome Read more
