Natural Sunscreen Review: Over 80 Mineral Sunscreens Tested by One Family!
by Katie Kimball
June 25, 2017
Crazy but true - our family really has tested and reviewed over 80 mineral sunscreens, and we know the best natural sunscreens that really work! In this comprehensive sunscreen review, we share which ones stay on in the water or when you sweat...
Which brands make you look white like a ghost and which go on smoothly, what got us burned and what natural ingredients are REALLY the best (and the brands that are tricking you with their marketing). We've learned a lot about sun safety and sunscreen efficacy, and I continue to do research on things like Vitamin D. We started in 2010 with 28 of the 40 natural sunscreens that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rated as "safe" at the time. (They now rank hundreds that way; exciting to see more and more brands getting on board!)
Why Coconut Oil Won't Kill You, But Listening to the American Heart Association Might!
June 23, 2017
You may have seen the news late last week about the latest "Presidential Advisory" on dietary fats released from the American Heart Association (AHA) published online in Circulation.
The American Heart Association was founded by a group of cardiologists in 1924. Its purpose is to fight heart disease and stroke by funding research, promoting certain public health policies, and providing education to the public. With heart disease being the leading cause of death in the United States, this is clearly important work, but their effectiveness is clouded by politics and a questionable interpretation of science. They have repeatedly promoted the replacement of saturated fat with omega-6 (inflammatory) polyunsaturated fats in order to reduce heart disease risk, a recommendation that simply has not been supported by current research.
Why Magnesium is the Most Powerful Relaxation Mineral Known to Man
by Mark Hyman
June 8, 2017
Magnesium is one of the most beneficial minerals you can supplement with most individuals are deficient. Learn more about the health benefits of magnesium.
I find it very funny that more doctors aren't clued in to the benefits of magnesium, because we use it all the time in conventional medicine. But we never stop to think about why or how important it is to our general health or why it helps our bodies function better. I remember using magnesium when I worked in the emergency room. It was a critical "medication" on the crash cart. If someone was dying of a life-threatening arrhythmia (or irregular heart beat), we used intravenous magnesium. If someone was constipated or needed to prepare for colonoscopy, we gave them milk of magnesia or a green bottle of liquid magnesium citrate, which emptied their bowels.
Five Cutting-Edge Cancer Treatments
June 7, 2017
Memorial Sloan Kettering scientists and doctors firmly believe we're on the cusp of a brighter era in cancer care and research. Although the history of attempts to understand and control cancer is littered with disappointments...
In addition to drugs such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, MSK researchers are developing another immunotherapy strategy in which a patient's own T cells are manipulated to more readily attack cancer cells. In this treatment, called chimeric antigen receptor therapy, or CAR therapy, T cells are collected from a patient's blood, genetically engineered to recognize certain proteins on cancer cells, and infused back into the patient's bloodstream.
Why Supplements Are Necessary
by Frank M. Painter, D.C.
June 5, 2017
I hear it all the time from my patients: "Dr. Smith, I'm eating just like you told me to -- lots of grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables, nothing fatty or sugary. Now you're recommending supplements, too? Taking so many pills just doesn't seem natural.
It's a perfectly valid question, and one which you may have wondered about at one time or another. I'll tell you exactly what I tell my patients: If you want to fight disease and achieve maximum life span, you can't do it with diet alone. You need the extra nutritional boost that only supplements can provide. Lots of folks take supplements nowadays. For as many as 40 percent of American adults -- about 100 million of us -- these pills have become nutritional staples. They're also the backbone of a thriving, $10-billion-per-year industry. In many ways, supplements are to humans what fertilizer is to plants. Give a plant adequate amounts of sunlight and water, and it will survive. Add some nutrient-rich fertilizer (organic, of course), and the plant will thrive.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated: Guess who is Sicker?
by Celeste McGovern
May 4, 2017
It's never been done before. The first-of-its-kind study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American homeschooled children shows who is really ailing... and parents should be worried.
Something is wrong with America's children. They are sick - allergic, asthmatic, anxious, autoimmune, autistic, hyperactive, distracted and learning disabled. Thirty-two million American children - a full 43% of them - suffer from at least one of 20 chronic illnesses not including obesity. Across the board, once rare pediatric disorders from autism and ADD to Type 1 diabetes and Tourette's syndrome are soaring, though few studies pool the data. Compared to their parents, children today are four times more likely to have a chronic illness.
