Butter’s Off The Hook – Trans Fats Linked to Heart Disease and Death

Butter's Off the Hook -- Trans Fats Linked to Heart Disease and Death

After decades as a fugitive from ignorant and sometimes corrupt bureaucrats, saturated fats can come in from the cold.  A new study fingers trans fats as the real culprit in heart disease. 

For decades we've been told to cut back on butter, eggs, meat, and cheese for the sake of our hearts.  But a new systematic review of the science proves there's no additional cardiovascular risk from eating saturated fats. 

Cancer & Sugar - Strategy for Selective Starvation of Cancer

Cancer and Sugar - Strategy for Selective Starvation of Cancer

According to researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, sugar poses a health risk—contributing to around 35 million deaths globally each year. So high is sugar's toxicity that it should now be considered a potentially toxic substance like alcohol and tobacco. Its link with the onset of diabetes is such that punitive regulations, such as a tax on all foods and drinks that contain "added'' sugar, are now warranted, the researchers concluded. They also recommend banning sales in or near schools, as well as placing age limits on the sale of such products.

Sugar's harmful effects do not stop at diabetes, metabolic syndrome, hyper- and hypoglycemia, GERD and heart disease. Sugar and cancer are locked in a death grip, yet oncologists often fail to do what's necessary to stop their patients from feeding their cancers with sweets.

Whereas many within the mainstream medical community insist on promoting the belief that the link between certain types of food with an increased risk of cancer is "weak" or only "nominally significant." They believe that research "linking foodstuffs to cancer reveals no valid medical patterns." We also find such superficial attitudes promoted in the medical press-all of which lack any kind of medical depth.

Diabetes is Big Business, but for Whom?

Diabetes Drugs Profits

We all know that diabetes is big business. The trillion dollar question is: "big business for whom?"

This week (April 2012), 1st Quarter net profit financial statements were released in business publications worldwide. Among the company net profit earnings reported were some of the biggest manufacturers of diabetes and diabetes-related medications.

Magnesium Supplements Improve Metabolic Syndrome

Magnesium Supplements Improve Metabolic Syndrome

The importance of magnesium to human health is under-appreciated.  This one essential mineral promotes heart health, normal blood pressure, healthy nerve and muscle function, a strong immune system, and a good memory. 

And magnesium is particularly important for regulating blood sugar and the metabolism.  In fact, magnesium deficiency can predict both diabetes and heart disease.  Studies show people who consume the most magnesium in their diet are least likely to develop type 2 diabetes.  And unfortunately, diabetics lose more magnesium than most people.

The human body has over 60 trillion cells, and every one of them is vulnerable to the development of multiple diseases. One of the biggest problems facing medicine is how to diagnose these diseases earlier, in order to improve the chances of stopping and reversing them.

The Absurd Economics of Nutrition and Exercise


The Absurd Economics of Nutrition and Exercise

It's fair to say that, to a large extent, America has long fostered a culture and environment conducive to physical inactivity and nutritional-based disease.

With today's prevailing science clearly showing that teaching and practicing lifestyle medicine significantly decreases the top chronic health conditions plaguing society — i.e. diabetes, obesity, heart disease and certain cancers — moving more firmly in this healthier, logical direction would subsequently trigger a vast increase in human productivity and output, thus creating a major boon to both population health and our national treasury.

The Fat Wars

The Fat Wars

Perhaps nowhere in health has there been more confusion than the confusion caused by fat. The question of which fats are healthy and which fats are unhealthy has led to some pretty unhealthy diets, including extreme no fat diets that attempt to eliminate fat as much as possible with no attention to the differences between different fats

Recently, the confusion was placed in clear relief with the publication of dueling studies. The first exonerated saturated fat and vilified polyunsaturated fats; its opponent vilified saturated fats and championed unsaturated fats.

Type 3 Diabetes The Next Global Epidemic

 

Type 3 Diabetes is when the brain stops or reduces the acceptance of the brain’s secreted insulin within the brain’s cell receptors.
Diabetes type 1 and type 2 derive from the decline of insulin produced within the pancreas to the point where there is no insulin produced. Yet, in recent years, scientists have found that insulin is also produced within the brain. This has led to the recognition of diabetes type 3 in 2005.
