Eating Citrus Fruits Lowers Risk of Dementia by 23 Percent, Study Finds

(NaturalHealth365) New research is indicating that eating more oranges, grapefruits and other citrus fruits could help to offset the effects of age-related cognitive impairment and dementia. The research was conducted by scientists at Tohuku University in Japan. Keep in mind (no pun intended), that these benefits of eating citrus fruits were found to be substantial. In fact, there was as much as a 23 percent average risk reduction for getting Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Not bad, when you consider the alternative of eating unhealthy foods, less brain function and the final years of life on all sorts of ineffective pharmaceutical drugs for dementia. Daily consumption of citrus fruits minimize your risk of dementia The study looked at over 13,000 older and elderly adults and tracked their diet and brain… Read More

Eating Walnuts May Help Keep Gut Happy

Eating walnuts may keep your digestive system happy. Researchers found that walnuts act as a prebiotic in the gut, increasing levels of good probiotic bacteria and as well as its diversity. “Gut health is an emerging research area, but we are seeing that greater bacterial diversity may be associated with better health outcomes, whereas low diversity has been linked to conditions such as obesity and inflammatory bowel disease,” said lead researcher Lauri Byerley, Ph.D. of Louisiana State University. In the study, rats were randomly assigned to a diet containing ground walnuts, equivalent to about 2 ounces (1/2 cup) per day in humans, or a diet without walnuts for up to 10 weeks. The two diet groups consumed similar amounts of calories and nutrients. Compared to those that did not consume walnuts, rats… Read More

5 Ways Bone Broth Boosts Your Immune System and Fights Cancer

There has been a lot of hub-bub about the benefits of bone broth in health circles lately. It is wise (and sane) not to immediately get on the bandwagon of every latest health fad. In the case of bone broth’s effect on the immune system, however, it is definitely worth a look. You may know that bone broth consumption has actually been around for thousands of years, but you might not know how bone broth can help specifically with cancer prevention and healing. Bone Broth Has Ancient Roots Weston A. Price spent an entire decade interviewing the world’s healthiest people. When he arrived in the Rocky Mountain Range in the far north of Canada, he wrote this about the eating habits of the native peoples there: “…It is important that skeletons are… Read More

Avocados as a Super Food: “It Would Be Hard to Eat Too Much”

An Avocado a Day Keeps the Doctor Away by Dr. Mercola Sometimes people have more than one serious health complication. If those problems happen to be three or more of the most prevalent risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, such as high blood pressure, high triglycerides and a large waistline, they merge into a single disorder known as metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome represents one very serious illness, affecting 40 percent of the U.S. population over age 40. Scientists from the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), conducting a review of 129 scientific studies on the topic of avocados and metabolic syndrome, now call this malady “the new silent killer.” [1] Dr. Charles H. Hennekens says: “The major factor accelerating the pathway to metabolic syndrome is overweight… Read More

Food Companies Hiding Harmful Ingredient Under New Name

NaturalNews| Big Food is at it again, fooling us with false advertisements to make us buy food we don’t want to consume. Most of today’s consumers are increasingly health conscious and want to avoid products that contain health-damaging ingredients. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is one of the substances that has made a bad name for itself. This questionable sweetener – which is much cheaper than regular sugar, and extends the shelf life of processed products – has been linked to many health problems such as heart disease, obesity, dementia, diabetes, cancer and liver failure. For this reason, many consumers have begun to check food labels and steer away from foods containing HFCS. But manufacturers have come up with a sneaky way to fool their customers so that they don’t have to change their… Read More

Monsanto suppresses information about dangers of RNA interference technology

(NaturalNews) A professor from South Carolina University who conducts medical research on plant genes is bringing forth new findings on RNA interference technology that have Monsanto squirming. Her research lines up with findings from Chinese researcher Dr. Chen-Yu Zhang, who has confirmed new dangers of RNA interference technology in plants engineered to kill insects. Their research is so eye opening that both of them have been confronted by Monsanto itself. It’s now apparent that Monsanto seeks to destroy any scientific research that conflicts with their agenda. SC Professor experiences the pressures and controls of Monsanto first hand South Carolina University Professor Vicki Vance has been engaged in conducting RNA research for nearly 30 years. She is beginning to see how multinational corporations like Monsanto control scientific academia through harassment and by wielding… Read More

Local Honey: Taking a Closer Look

Is your local honey really local? There is considerable conversation on the Internet these days about the benefits of eating local honey. Much of the discussion revolves around using local honey to help with pollen related allergies. Some say that local honey contains a blend of local pollen, which can strengthen a person’s immune system, and reduce pollen allergy symptoms. Is this true? Let’s take a look. The first fact is that there has been very little scientific research on whether local honey is helpful for the reduction of pollen related allergy symptoms. There are a few studies to consider, and a huge amount of personal opinion on the topic. I will show you two of the most significant studies. But before I do, I will summarize the honey making process and… Read More

Has your DNA been altered by GMOs?

(NaturalNews) If you are eating genetically modified foods – including essentially any product containing corn or soy that has not been certified organic or free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) – the modified genes in those GMOs might be negatively influencing your body’s own DNA. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine has warned that studies have linked consumption of GMOs with health problems, including reproductive dysfunction (including infertility), organ damage, immune dysfunction, insulin disorders and accelerated aging. The mechanisms by which such harms occur remain unclear, but at least some of them might come from changes that GMOs cause to the DNA of organisms other than those deliberately “modified” by genetic engineers. GMO DNA passes into your blood The biggest question is this: Does eating GMOs modify your DNA? The short answer… Read More

The Not-So-Sweet Story Of The Sugar Conspiracy

by PROFKEITH In the 1970s, anyone but an idiot was listening seriously to the emerging evidence that sugar was a major killer. The really smart ones didn’t get at all distracted by the saturated fat story (I’ve campaigned that we need saturated fat for brain health for over 40 years). The major star of this emerging science was a Brit: John Yudkin, founding Professor of the Department of Nutrition at Queen Elizabeth College, London. He tackled the sugar issue head on, with a sensational book, with an equally sensational title (“Pure, White and Deadly” 1972). Pure, White and Deadly was written for a lay readership. Its intention was to summarize the evidence Yudkin had gathered since at least 1957, showing that the consumption of sugar was leading to a greatly increased incidence… Read More
