Junk! Organic! Fair Trade! Have You Noticed The Food Fight's Heating Up?
by Sascha Garrey
July 2, 2013
Food used to be a simple pleasure. But lately, it seems there are a million things to worry about when it comes to food. Even buying a plain-old bunch of carrots can induce anxiety: Are they local? Are they organic? How much vitamin A do I need anyway?
And then there's the "personal is political" stance taking over many modern American kitchens. These are the raw-whole-natural-organic-local-fair-trade types who oppose the mainstream industrialization of food and food distribution. One example: the recent viral post published by BuzzFeed that lists some of the alarming health horrors linked to chemicals in everyday favorites like Froot Loops and milk.
Lawsuit Filed to Halt Swine Flu Vaccine Distribution
News With Views

October 13, 2009
With the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin nationwide delivery of swine flu vaccine to 90,000 locations, attorney James Turner filed a complaint in federal court in the District of Columbia for a Temporary Restraining Order.
The suit challenges the Sept. 15 licensing of four swine flu vaccines, alleging that the FDA violated the law in its hurried approval by failing to determine the safety and efficacy of the vaccines as required by law since 1964. Turner told NewsWithViews that none of the procedures that should have been done, and that make up a formal administrative record, had been done.
Nurture the Nervous System, Nourish the Baby

We all know the benefits of breastfeeding for a newborn, but we also must not underestimate the joy and emotional well-being that follow when a mother is able to feed her infant as planned and find empowerment through her own natural ability.
Yet far too many women suffer from unexplained pain, latch problems and even infection when they attempt to breastfeed, one of the most natural things in the world. This overwhelming pain and trouble when a woman is at her most sensitive can cause the early cessation of the nursing relationship and considerable emotional turmoil. This not only results in disappointment for the mom, but also an infant who misses out on the very best in early nutrition.
The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (it's not the gluten)
November 16, 2015
The stories became far too frequent to ignore. Emails from folks with allergic or digestive issues to wheat in the United States experienced no symptoms whatsoever when they tried eating pasta on vacation in Italy.
Confused parents wondering why wheat consumption sometimes triggered autoimmune reactions in their children but not at other times. In my own home, I've long pondered why my husband can eat the wheat I prepare at home, but he experiences negative digestive effects eating even a single roll in a restaurant.
Signs of Vitamin D Deficiency Most People Miss
October 22, 2015
With flu season upon us and serious new viruses like Enterovirus D68 making the rounds, keeping blood levels of vitamin D at optimal levels can be truly lifesaving especially for children and the elderly.
Flu is actually vitamin D deficiency disease, not a happenstance occurrence in your life because you didn't get a flu shot or sat next to a coughing person on the train to work. Dr. John Cannell of the Vitamin D Council and one of the most preeminent Vitamin D researchers in the world today, has identified that vitamin D helps produce the antimicrobial peptides that protect against the flu. This is why people are more prone to the flu in winter when Vitamin D producing sunshine is minimal or nonexistent at some latitudes.
'Raw' Cheese from the store is Not Raw!
September 22, 2015
In yet another case of labeling tricks and deception where store bought food is concerned, cheese produced in the United States and labeled as "raw" at the healthfood store and specialty shops is anything but.
Organic Valley, the corporate behemoth that has gone to the Dark Side where raw, fresh, organic, health giving grassfed milk is concerned is not surprisingly the worst offender of this loophole in the USDA regulations.

Beam of light gives ray of hope for those in pain

September 19, 2008
Laser treatment has been around for several decades, but just recently became more mainstream. This new treatment, which is approved by the FDA, is used to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and wounds.
Miguel Cruz, D.C., a chiropractor in Burnsville, North Carolina says the light is absorbed by micro-molecules in the skin and initiates a powerful reaction skin. It also causes the body to produce endorphins, which inhibit the sensation of pain, and cortisol, which helps the body combat stress associated with injury or disease.
Source of golfers' back pain? It's all in the hips
by Sandy Thorn Clark
April 17, 2011
A Westmont chiropractor says often golfers mistakenly think their pain originates in the back. Take a look at the hip joints and that may very well be the origin of the pain.
If hip motion inhibition is confirmed, Wehrend then administers massage, electrical stimulation, acupuncture and/or Kinesio Taping to help alleviate pain and promote healing. He also has the patient perform customized in-office and take-home exercises to build strength.
Can Quitting Gluten Be Bad for You?
by Sandi Busch

Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
Wheat is a major source of gluten. Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Now gluten-free products are easy to find and going gluten-free has become a diet option for anyone. But it's not always the best choice. If you're not careful about your food selections, a gluten-free diet may lack essential nutrients. Gluten proteins in wheat, rye and barley trigger an autoimmune response in people with celiac disease. Following a gluten-free diet relieves celiac-related symptoms. However, a medical professional should make such a diagnosis. Deciding to go gluten-free can be risky. You might not be as strict about avoiding sources and forms of gluten as you must be. If you have celiac disease, eating even a small amount of gluten damages your intestines, resulting in health problems throughout your body. Undiagnosed celiac disease also can increase your risk of osteoporosis and thyroid disease. If you experience bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, joint pain or a skin rash, consult your doctor.
