The Dangers of Food Engineering
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
HOW SAFE IS OUR WATER?
Really.. How safe is our water?
We often hear that America has the safest drinking water in the world—except for the antibiotics, the rocket fuel, the pharmaceutical drugs and the pesticides that sometimes sneak in…
Sparkling, flat, or flaming?
Lately we’ve been flooded with scary information about the water we drink. The News points out that over 60,000 chemicals are used across the country, and can get into our drinking water. The EPA enforces limits, but only on fewer than 100. Some reports warn of perchlorate, an ingredient in rocket fuel that has been found in water systems in 26 states. There are even stories of families who have actually lit their tap water on fire, not something we tend to look for in a drinking refreshment.

A complementary/alternative treatment that “gets the lead (and other toxic metals) out”
“Every person alive today should have a heavy metal screening. It’s painless, inexpensive, and can provide answers and a means of treatment for multiple diseases.” Dr. Guy DaSilva, CEO and Founder, DaSilva Institute
Chelation therapy, a long-time mainstream treatment for drawing lead and other heavy metal poisons out of the body, is often misunderstood in its effectiveness to address, identify and treat other ailments.

LAUGH A LITTLE… IT JUST MIGHT SAVE YOUR LIFE
Not only is laughter fun and easy but it’s free! It is healing and has been shown to improve health, your emotional state and mood. Research shows that even arranging the face into the features of a smile can cause patients to feel happy.
Laughter itself releases endorphins in the brain. It squeezes the larynx and muscles in the face which causes the body to gasp for air and sometimes produce tears. All of these things signal the brain to release euphoric morphine-like chemicals that make us feel better.
Laughter benefits our immune systems because Read more
VITAMIN D AND CANCER PREVENTION
General Cancer Prevention
- More than 60 epidemiology studies conducted over the last 20 years have shown that Vitamin D deficiency is associated with increased rates of cancer. (8)
- A placebo controlled study has confirmed these findings. In the study, vitamin D supplements reduced the incidence of cancer by as much as 77% compared to patients who were given placebo (sugar pill).(29) (See worldside reaction to these data)
- The incidence of cancer is reduced by 17% and the death rate from cancer by 29% for every 10ng/ml increase in the blood level of vitamin D. The effect is particularly strong for cancers of the gastrointestinal tract where the reduction in death rate was 45% for the same increase in plasma levels of vitamin D. (30)
- Two clinical trials have demonstrated that the higher the blood level of vitamin D, the greater the degree of protection against developing cancer. (29) (30)
THE DANGERS OF TOO LITTLE VITAMIN A
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.
CHOLESTEROL… FRIEND OR FOE?
WHAT IS CHOLESTEROL?
Cholesterol is a waxy steroid metabolite found in all of our cell membranes where it is required to establish proper membrane permeability and fluidity.
It is primarily made in the liver and transported in the blood to other places in the body where it is used to manufacture numerous other chemicals and cell structures.
For example, cholesterol is an important component for the manufacture of Read more
GLUTEN FREE- THE ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE ENHANCER
You might have seen the news about tennis player Novak Djokovic when he went gluten-free despite never being diagnosed with celiac disease. Yet his athletic performance improved so vastly that he went 37-0 in 2011 and was later considered the athlete of the year according the Wall Street Journal Article of May 18, 2011 .
VITAMIN D PROTECTS AGAINST COLON CANCER
Many of my colleagues dispute the benefits of nutrition in medicine. Some actually argue that the mega-doses that I often employ may even be harmful. However, the medical literature continually supports my therapies and teaches us that this isn’t so.
Citing just one example, researchers at the Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO; Spain), Read more
Here is some stuff I found while looking at the lighter side of hormones- hope you enjoy.
“If women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn’t it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long?” -Gloria Steinem
“Teenage boys, goaded by their surging hormones run in packs like primal horde. They have only a brief season of exhilarating liberty between control by their mothers and control by their wives.” -Camille Paglia Read more
