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

Bayer Buys Monsanto For $66 Billion Creating The World’s Most Malevolent Corporation!

The livelihoods and indeed the very lives of farmers and consumers hangs in the balance pf this acquisition.  By Whitney Webb Bayer, who made it rich selling heroin to children and financing Nazi concentration camps, is set to pay over $128 a share to buy the world’s most notorious GMO seed company. German pharmaceutical and agrochemical company Bayer has finally succeeded in its attempts to buy US GM seed company Monsanto. The merger will create a company that commands more than 25% of the world’s agricultural market for seeds and pesticides. Bayer first attempted to buy Monsanto for $62 billion this past May but was unsuccessful as Monsanto demanded more money following its failed takeover of the world’s largest GM seed company Syngenta. Antitrust authorities in the US and the EU still have the ability to prevent… Read More

Powerful Inflammation Fighting Benefits of Cherries and Berries

Written By BeWellBuzz Cherries and berries not only taste delicious but they also have strong anti-inflammatory properties, too. This post from The Chopra Center tells you why you should incorporate more of them into your diet—and gets you started with a delicious cherry–berry smoothie recipe.

Wheat Contains Not One, But 23K Potentially Harmful Proteins

Most folks don’t realize that when we are talking about health problems associated with wheat, or gluten, we are not talking about a monolithic entity, a singular “bad guy,” solely responsible for the havoc commonly experienced as a consequence of consuming this grain. After all, how could just one villain cause the 200+ different clinically observed adverse health effects now linked in the biomedical literature to wheat consumption? No, the problem is that “gluten” is an abstraction, and in its perceived singularity profoundly misrepresents the true extent of the problem, much in the way that the tip of an iceberg does not convey the massive threat submerged below … Gluten is the Latin name for “glue,” and signifies the doughy complex of proteins within the wheat plant, further classified as either gliadins… Read More

Sugar Feeds Cancer Cells, BUT it May Even CREATE Them!

First realize that even without being diagnosed with cancer, we all have at least a few cancerous cells floating around in our “inner terrain”. A decent immune system residing in a slightly alkaline or neutral pH inner terrain is able to fend them off and keep them from colonizing into tumorous masses. On the other hand, those who indulge primarily in the SAD (Standard American Diet), which includes lots of factory farmed meat and junk foods saturated with refined sugars or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which processed foods use even with their non-sweet products to keep you addicted,along with all those refined carbs in refined grain baked products, are adding fuel (literally) to the fire of cancer. Mainstream oncology ignores this 1930s Nobel Prize discovery by Otto Warburg, aka the “Warburg… Read More
