Recent evidence shows that Mediterranean diet is a safe way to prevent dangerous pregnancy complications, such as preeclampsia and gestational hypertension, which compromise the short- and long-term health of mothers and infants.
Skin to skin contact between the mother and her new-born baby can have impressive healing and even life-saving effects for the infant.
Unlike the popular belief that vaginal birth is the main way to populate a newborn´s body with maternal symbiotic bacteria, seeding actually begins with implantation and pregnancy and is further reinforced with vaginal birth and breastfeeding.

Infertility rates are higher than ever, as is usage of cell phones. Yet, in the scientific literature, it is widely accepted and unanimously agreed on that electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones harms male sperm in many different ways.
Research shows that prenatal exposure to parabens can cause long-term problems to the growing baby. We now know that parabens cross the human placenta. The good news is that there are ways to protect your developing baby.
Accumulating science reveals we should worry about the impact of trans-fats on the brain of unborn children and the next generation in general.
A recent study shows that Goji berry polysaccharides improve dramatically BPA-induced damages to male reproductive physiology to near-normal levels, which could have a significant effect on male fertility.
An ancient herbal remedy, propolis has impressive anticancer properties, which act on the molecular level to reactivate protective genes, stop cancer growth and prevent metastasis.
Regarded as a legendary healing compound, scientific evidence shows that hydrogen peroxide mouthwash and bleaching is actually harmful for teeth and may cause tissue irritation and teeth sensitivity and compromise long-term dental health.
According to existing scientific evidence, choosing natural, side effect-free herbal formulas to treat acute ear infection and pain over synthetic antibiotics with questionable therapeutic efficacy is a reasonable and well-founded option.
Gardening is not just fun anymore, but a valid therapeutic modality. There is solid evidence proving that garden therapy can have a profound beneficial impact in stress-related conditions, improve sleep quality, elevate mood, reduce pain and medication.
Systematically bypassing public awareness and approval, GMOs have invaded a much wider market than the food industry. Dubious industrial uses surpass even the wildest imagination and show that our daily lives are far more contaminated by GMOs that we thought.
While commercially available milk is detrimental for health, it is important to remember that this milk is a highly processed industrial product remotely resembling the raw milk it originates from. High quality raw milk from exclusively pastured cows has incredible medicinal properties, fully recognised and harnessed before vested interests enforced compulsory pasteurization and legitimized low production standards.
There is solid evidence suggesting that the greatest part of the clinical healthcare and medical system has slowly been established on corrupted foundations.
Breastfeeding is not simply a source of nutrients for the newborn. The mother, through her breast milk quality, programs critical immunological, metabolic and microbiological aspects of the baby’s physiology that will determine greatly his/her health status, even as an adult.
By designing and selling addictive, low quality and disease-promoting products, Big Food has achieved the unthinkable: to create a dedicated army of health-compromised, addicted fans, whose cognitive, biochemical and even genetic potential to break free of their addiction is hijacked before birth.
