What happens when you allow commercial interests free rein over a nation state's food and agricultural policies? Consumers and farmers end up paying the price. Take the current predicament of wheat contamination in the US .
Today, we see horrific manifestations of a sick society with zombie-like heartless acts of violence. We are seeing creepy emerging emerging pathologies, new assaults to immunology, science fiction mad scientists, and technology with disturbing self-serving agendas.
Multiple studies have now confirmed that vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of obesity. Stock up on vitamin D with some fun in the sun this summer.
There are few subjects on which opinions are as divided as nutrition. Nearly everyone agrees: an excellent diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is healthy and will prevent many diseases. Such a diet is chock full of essential nutrients and antioxidants. Then, how come condemnation of supplemental antioxidants gets so much press coverage worldwide?
A new NIH study proclaiming that Ginkgo biloba causes cancer is so absurd you must wonder if they produced it with a straight face. More important, though, is why—and the reason is truly frightening. It’s part of a system determined to steal all natural health methods and hand them to Big Pharma & Big Medicine for profits.
According to conventional wisdom, the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte (pop. 2.5 million) has achieved something impossible. So, too, has the island of Cuba. They are feeding their hungry populations largely with local, low-input farming methods that enhance the environment rather than degrade it. They have achieved this, moreover, at a time of rising food prices when others have mostly retreated from their own food security goals.
The notion that genes cause disease is a many decades old myth that literally billions of dollars have gone into disproving, but why is the global media still reporting on the topic as if it were true?
In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene. This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers.
Great news for potato lovers: they may be a health food after all. Research shows that just a couple of servings a day reduces blood pressure almost as much as oatmeal - without causing weight gain.
The misuse of antibiotics is not only causing new, never-before known diseases like E. coli and MRSA, the flesh-eating bacteria, it's also destroying the gut biome with devastating effects on our ability to deal with infections and destroying our ability to absorb nutrients from food.
Not so long ago a family farm produced a myriad of crops for their family and neighbors. Today’s farms are a different proposition altogether, and monoculture food production is not only hard on the soil and the environment, but is causing allergies to these very foods that are supposed to sustain us.
New findings reveal the intimate life of water, more fascinating and biologically important than we ever thought.
A recent study from UCLA has confirmed that exposure to the herbicide Paraquat is linked with a heightened risk of Parkinson’s disease. Other studies have found that pesticides significantly increase the risk of Parkinson's.
There is something that every cancer patient should hear from their oncologist when they are first diagnosed. They should be told that by making certain dietary changes, they could increase their chances of healing from cancer dramatically, no matter what course of treatment they pursue.
One of the hottest and most controversial issues in the world today is genetic engineering. With protests against Monsanto on May 25th in over 400 cities, people have shown that this is a topic they truly care about. Largely, the stances are highly polarized with opponents saying it is all cancer causing, poisonous, and environmentally dangerous and supporters saying it is wonderful, improving yield and making everyone except "anti-science" opponents happy.
Since good soil takes effort and money to maintain, Agribusiness hasn't bothered. As a result, basics required for all life, including phosphorus, are now supplied by mining instead of soil. It's resulted in inferior food, but the situation is even worse. Phosphorus reserves are running low, leaving us to face starvation.
Clinical and laboratory research from India have proven that an Ayurvedic formula used for liver infections halts the often deadly hepatitis B virus.
Earlier this year, Vandana Shiva generated quite a stir within the blogosphere after comparing GMOs to rape in a Twitter post. And yet, as far as metaphors go, the comparison was strikingly accurate.
Milk is the best food for building strong bones, right? Not so fast. When it comes to bones, one researcher says prunes are exceptional.
A study claiming that fish oil provides no benefit in heart disease is being hyped as the final word on the issue. But is it? No, it is not. In fact, the study is absurdly blatant pseudo science, with two errors so glaring it's hard to believe they were made. Why do the researchers do it? Why do they care so little about the truth and your health?
It is a little known and under-appreciated fact that all humans are born with a serious, life-threatening genetic defect: namely, the inability to manufacture Vitamin C. Vitamin C, in fact, has significant value in disease prevention and treatment, according to research gathered from the National Library of Medicine.
Traditional healthcare systems like Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine have promoted the health benefits of skin-to-skin contact with the earth for hundreds, if not thousands of years. If that's not reason enough to consider this therapy, there is also now a growing body of research not only proving what those wise physicians knew all along, but showing exactly what happens when we perform this simple act.
The American medical system is corrupt, ineffective and unnecessarily costly. These outcomes are due to state violence on behalf of the politically connected elite (namely private insurers, physicians, pharmaceutical and medical device companies).
Nothing can replace exercise, but turmeric extract does a pretty good job of producing some of the same cardiovascular health benefits, most notably in women undergoing age-associated adverse changes in arterial health.
Depending on where you look, Angelina Jolie’s decision to have a double mastectomy as a protective measure against breast cancer is being described as incredibly brave, amazingly ill-informed or unbelievably greedy and manipulative. We take a look at some of the issues raised by this larger-than-life story.
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.
Research has determined that commercial bottled water in Spain has over 50 pharmaceutically-active chemicals in it, as well as the highly addictive drug nicotine. Is your (or your children's) bottled water polluted with addictive chemicals?
In a sudden turn of events, three separate incidents of Chinese authorities identifying and destroying illegally imported GM corn from the United States have been reported.
Irving Stone was an early thinker and writer about vitamin C (its scientific name is ascorbic acid). He knew it would be an uphill battle to change the way the medical profession viewed vitamin C. While most doctors accept that scurvy is a vitamin C deficiency illness, few have made the rather humongous jump to seeing high dose intravenous vitamin C as a major player in the management of cancer.
Special report by Glenn Sabin and Taylor Walsh examines the confluence of factors affecting primary care medicine—including volume-driven traditional care, concierge models, shrinking reimbursements and ACA’s non-discrimination clause—and the opportunity for integrative healthcare.
The evidence continues to mount. That vaccines are doing a great deal of harm is well beyond denying. Worse, though, the evidence that vaccines have had little or no effect on infectious diseases is clear, as documented in new graphs. The precautionary principle, which is enshrined in a UN directive, should have been implemented before vaccines were ever routinely injected.
It is no exaggeration to suggest that African children whose lives have been destroyed by a vaccine—given for a disease that isn’t a concern to them—were used as lab rats by the Gates Foundation, PATH, UNICEF, and WHO. Their existence proves the vaccine is extremely dangerous. Nonetheless, it was hailed as a success.
A growing body of research is confirming that the bacteria that infect our gums may well be the cause of many cases of arthritis. Could your gingivitis be swelling up your joints?
A large scale review of research from Australia and Chinese University scientists has proven with thousands of studies using hundreds of thousands of cancer patients that Chinese herbal medicine offers significant treatment for most types of cancers - including breast cancer
If you've heard that life is movement, it's true. If you've heard that just sitting around can kill you, it's also true. Physical inactivity is the fourth leading cause of death worldwide!
Years ago, Gaia Health informed that bee dieoffs are a direct result of pesticide nerve agents called neonicotinoids. The term, Colony Collapse Disorder, is fraudulent, designed to direct attention from the known cause. Agribusiness, the poison manufacturers making death-producing pesticides, is the other face of Big Pharma.
A new groundbreaking study from New York State researchers has determined that the U.S. food supply is contaminated with significant levels of parabens - now suspected in breast cancer and other endocrine-related disorders.
Angelina Jolie’s recent announcement in a New York Times op-ed that she had a ‘prophylactic’ double mastectomy due to her BRCA1/BRCA2 status has disturbing implications, some of which we covered late last year in connection with Allyn Rose, the 24-year old Miss American contest who announced she would be undergoing a double mastectomy to "prevent" breast cancer.
Are toys, pacifiers and even shampoo driving the epidemic of childhood obesity? Here's how to protect your family.
Whether she is aware of it or not, the woman decides when, where and how to give birth. Our bodies are under our control whether we have accessed the keys to that control or not. Extreme control has been demonstrated by highly trained martial arts experts who can prevent themselves from ovulating. Mothers at term have put themselves into labor by simply walking up a steep hill for an hour to start contractions.
A new study, yet to receive any media attention, reveals the "leukemogenic" properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides engineered into the vast majority of GMO food crops already within the US food supply.
New research from the West Virginia University School of Medicine has confirmed other research finding that Bisphenol A (BPA) – found among various plastics and resins in consumer goods – may lead or contribute to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
You've heard the saying "Life is short. Eat dessert first." So how about some chocolate cake at breakfast? If that sounds like a diet disaster, think again
It's illegal for children to vote. It's illegal for children to choose to drink alcohol. It's illegal for children to drive. It's illegal for children to give consent for medical procedures. Yet, New York is planning to let children give consent for vaccinations, a potentially life-changing or destroying procedure, without parental consent?
Labeling of GM foods is required in the European Union, China, Russia, Australia and Japan, in fact, in 64 countries around the world. Labeling will give us the ability to choose what we consume. Please contact your state legislators and urge them to support pending “Right to Know” legislation in your state. Do it for your children. Do it for the planet.
Following news that China is ordering non-GM soy from Brazil, the non-GM soy producers of Brazil are gearing up to sell their crop to India as well. Soon all countries outside the GM-producing Americas will be sourcing non-GM soy. Except, that is, the UK, which is now stuck in a GM ghetto.
When older women are told that their bones should be as dense as a young adult (30 year old) at peak bone mass, things can and DO go terribly wrong...
According to a new study, the ‘Cry’ toxins that Monsanto’s GMO crops have been genetically modified to produce are a lot more toxic to mammals than previously thought, primarily to the blood.
Research has confirmed and quantified that whole extracts of Garlic and Ginger have the ability to stop several species of multi-drug resistant bacteria
What you put on your skin goes directly into your body. Indeed, human autopsy studies have shown that mineral oil widely permeates our internal organs; major moisturizer brands have been found to cause tumor formation in treated animals. All the more reason why we need healthy "food cosmetics" as an alternative to petroleum-derived body care products.
Olive oil has been a mainstay of the Mediterranean diet for thousands of years and is well known as a heart healthy fat. One study suggests that consuming olive oil may also help prevent strokes in older people.
When food and gardening are treated as if they're nothing more than commodities, especially when control is placed in the hands of those whose sole interest is profits, then the people under such rule are living in total tyranny. That's exactly what the EU is in the process of doing: handing the most basic of food rights, access to seeds, over to Agribusiness.
Could side effects from food additives, water fluoridation, GMO’s, tainted air, excessive vaccines, cause people to become mediocre, and lose their critical thinking abilities? Some new technologies could make living a ‘natural’ life challenging in the near future. In fact, according to the Strategic Social Initiative, (2045.com), scientists, technologists, and entrepreneurs support the forming of a ‘new evolutionary strategy’ for humanity. Could this become human evolution?
A groundbreaking study from the United Kingdom has connected gingivitis and oral health to cognitive decline. The study's findings are backed up by a multitude of research supporting the mechanisms.
