The OTC Med. That Can Kill You: New warning admits popular painkiller causes liver damage, death...
by Jonathan Benson
December 24, 2016
It has been a common household name in over-the-counter pain relief for more than 50 years, but the popular painkiller drug Tylenol is getting a major labeling makeover following a string of personal injury lawsuits.
Even when taken at recommended doses, acetaminophen, the primary active ingredient in Tylenol, can cause major damage to the liver, potentially leading to liver failure and even death. In fact, acetaminophen is currently the leading cause of sudden liver failure in the U.S., as its toxic metabolites have been shown to kill liver cells. The drug is so toxic that as many as 80,000 people are rushed to the emergency room annually due to acetaminophen poisoning, and another 500-or-so end up dead from liver failure.
Organic News: After reading this, you'll never look at a Banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.
Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

10 Nail Symptoms and What They Mean for Your Health
by Joseph Mercola
November 5, 2016
Nails are often regarded as a purely aesthetic feature, and the $768 million spent annually on nail polish (in the U.S. alone) can attest to that.1 Yet, your nails are far more than a platform for bright colors and nail art.
The shape, texture, and color of your natural nails act as a window into your body, and while some nail symptoms are harmless, others can be indicative of chronic diseases, including cancer. As noted by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD): "Nails often reflect our general state of health. Changes in the nail, such as discoloration or thickening, can signal health problems including liver and kidney diseases, heart and lung conditions, anemia, and diabetes."

Yosemite's Half Dome climb gets a bit easier
by Joshua Emerson Smith
July 15, 2012
YOSEMITE -- The permit process to climb Half Dome has made the iconic destination safer and more enjoyable, according to park officials.
But hikers making their way up the set of steel cables on the final 400-foot ascent must still cope with the inevitable moment when a nervous hiker freezes up, forcing the entire line into a vertical midair traffic jam on the side of the 8,800-foot granite monolith. It is dangerous especially if you're not prepared, said Duane Poslusny, a law enforcement ranger who checks permits using an iPad at the area known as the Sub-Dome.

"Medicine is the study of diseases and what causes people to die," Chiropractor Meleah Mauldin said. "Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes people to live."
Mauldin said her favorite part of chiropractics is witnessing the miracle of the body healing itself. A common misconception of chiropractic care is that only people with pain can benefit from the adjustments, Mauldin said.
Tattoo ink poisoning Americans
by Julie Wilson
August 22, 2014
If you're reading this, there's a good chance that you have a tattoo. After all, nearly half of the population has decided at some point in their life that it was a good idea to permanently ink an image, or special symbol, onto their skin.
But now there's a new reason to rethink getting inked. Have you ever considered exactly what tattoo ink is made of? The ink is really pigment, and most are made of metal salts; however, some are made of plastics or vegetable dyes, and if organic, they're usually plant-based.
Arsenic In Your Food Investigated
July 15, 2015
Organic rice baby cereal, rice breakfast cereals, brown rice, white rice-new tests by Consumer Reports have found that those and other types of rice products on grocery shelves contain arsenic, many at worrisome levels.
Arsenic not only is a potent human carcinogen but also can set up children for other health problems in later life. Following our January investigation, "Arsenic in Your Juice," which found arsenic in apple and grape juices, we recently tested more than 200 samples of a host of rice products. They included iconic labels and store brands, organic products and conventional ones; some were aimed at the booming gluten-free market.
Chronic Or Permanent Stress Can Result In Mental Disorders Such As Schizophrenia
by Justin Caba
December 10, 2014
Long-term stress's impact on cells in the immune system, primarily microglial cells, can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
A recent study published in the Rubin science magazine has revealed that chronic or permanent stress's effect on microglial cells - immune-competent cells responsible for repairing synaptic links, removing damaged synapses, and facilitating the growth of new brain neurons - can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
