Foods That Fight Inflammation
February 1, 2015
Your immune system attacks anything in your body that it recognizes as foreign-such as an invading microbe, plant pollen, or chemical. The process is called inflammation.
Many people suffer from chronic inflammation due to the modern diet and lifestyle. Processed food, sugar, hydrogenated and trans fats, stress, malnutrition, obesity, pollution, heavy metals and excessive exercise cause this condition, because they cause overactivity in the immune system, that can lead to joint pain, fatigue, and damage to the blood vessels. (Editor Note: GMO's are the cause of most of these ailments we morals suffer from.)
Prominent Chefs Serve Up a Message to Congress: Label GMOs
December 2, 2014
More than 700 chefs - including Tom Colicchio, José Andrés, Art Smith and Sam Talbot - are urging members of Congress to support legislation to mandate labeling of genetically modified foods and to oppose efforts to block state GMO labeling laws.
"This is about transparency in the marketplace and preventing consumer deception," agreed Colin O'Neil, director of government affairs at the Center for Food Safety. "Consumers can only make informed decisions when they are given the information to do so. We require labels on everything from juice from concentrate to foods that have been irradiated; why should genetic engineering be any different?"
FDA Targets Essentials Oils: Sees EOs as Threat to New Ebola Drugs?
October 4, 2014
The FDA issued warning letters this week to the two largest distributors of essentials oils in the United Sates, Young Living and dÅTERRA. The FDA is claiming that their products are being marketed as unapproved drugs.
According to the FDA, these promotions - especially ones related to Ebola - are inaccurate but not unexpected. "Oftentimes with public health incidences, like Ebola or even during H1n1, we see products that are marketed, often online, that claim to treat or cure the disease...without FDA approval," FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Yao said in an interview, adding that "these sorts of things pop up" in almost any public health crisis.
75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves
July 11, 2014
Doctors used to think that if they drained a sick person's blood it would purge the "evil" infection or disease right out of the body, but all that did was make the ill person much weaker, unable to fight off whatever was invading their body.
Research using polls and questionnaires continue to show that 3 of every 4 doctors and scientists would refuse chemotherapy for themselves due to its devastating effects on the entire body and the immune system, and because of its extremely low success rate. On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be "life extending," yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer.
Will Human Beings Soon Stop Bathing?
July 8, 2014
The New York Times Magazine recently ran a story about a fascinating new product, a spray called AO+ Refreshing Cosmetic Mist, from a small biotech company AOBiome. The spray contains billions of cultivated Nitrosomonas eutropha.
AOBiome scientists believe these bacteria act as a kind of pro-biotic for the skin. Once applied, they become a built-in cleanser, deodorant, anti-inflammatory, and immune booster by feeding on the ammonia in our sweat. The MIT-trained chemical engineer who invented AO+, David Whitlock, noticed that horses will roll in dirt after the getting sweaty: they are actually collecting the bacteria that transform the ammonia into nitrite and nitric oxide.
How To Make Yogurt at Home Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn
May 30, 2014
I've been making my own yogurt for a few years now and I don't think I'll ever go back. Not only does it actually save me some grocery money, but this homemade yogurt is seriously good. I'm eating more yogurt now than ever before.
The method I've adopted is very basic - no special heirloom yogurt cultures or fancy incubating equipment required. You could even make a batch tonight and have homemade yogurt for breakfast by tomorrow morning! All you need to make homemade yogurt is a half gallon of milk and about a half cup of yogurt.
6 Additives in Non-Dairy Milk That Should Never Make It Past Your Lips
May 27, 2014
Did you know that in your efforts to be healthy you just might be consuming more chemicals than you think? Yup, non-dairy milk may not be all it's cracked up to be. Let's look a little closer at some of the additives in non-dairy milk...
Milk and other dairy products have on the receiving end of bad press for decades already. However, once the "Low Fat" movement kicked off, this bad press virtually became sheer brutality. Everything dairy was suddenly condemned. Everywhere we look we see warnings about the dangers of milk and all products derived from it. Butter in particular suddenly became a mass murderer once low fat margarine arrived on the scene.

Natural Remedies for Women With Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome
May 25, 2014
If you are diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse, have no fear as natural remedies can help you to endure the annoying symptoms of this benign disorder.
Women are far more likely than men to be diagnosed with this syndrome and oddly, there is even a specific body type related to this malady. The typical profile is a slender female with long arms, tapering fingers and a wide hand span. They also seem to be very limber and loose-jointed. Doctors pick up on this diagnosis when listening to the heart and hear a click murmur. Further studies with an echocardiogram will confirm the prolapse and offer pictures for review.
The Truth About Secondary Drowning
May 24, 2014
The weekend of May 17, writer Lindsay Kujawa and her toddler son Ronin were at a family pool party. Kujawa sat at the edge of the pool while Ronin played on the top step of the spa, and for five seconds she shifted her position.
Suddenly, she noticed Ronin wasn't on the step and was instead being whirled around by the jets in the whirlpool, frantically trying to get his head above water. She pulled him out immediately and other than him coughing and being very upset, he seemed totally fine after a few minutes and they went on with the rest of the party.
