Millions take aspirin each day -- presumably to prevent cardioavascular disease -- but how many are aware of its true risks (which include deadly bleeding events) and of the natural, evidence-based alternatives that exist that are much safer?
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!
Research revealing the broad spectrum toxicity of statin drugs continues to accumulate unabated. Adding to a growing body of clinical evidence that they may cause over 300 adverse health effects, a new study reveals that these cholesterol-lowering drugs may be contributing to an epidemic of arthritis and autoimmunity in exposed populations, as well.
Good news for the holiday season! Champagne does more than tickle your nose. It may also protect your heart
The "diseases of affluence," as they are known, include diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer, and are sometimes referred to as the "Western disease" paradigm. They emerge largely in response to the type of overnourishment that occurs in relatively wealthy societies, and particularly the overconsumption of certain biologically incompatible foods that have become the nutritional centerpiece of agrarian and largely grain-based cultures.
Just because you inherited some "bad genes" from your parents and grandparents, doesn't mean you are doomed to suffer their diseases. A healthy diet, including olive oil, can modulate the effect of these genes
A groundbreaking NEJM study reveals that you have up to a 26.9 fold increased risk of heart-related death within one week following a cancer diagnosis (regardless of it's accuracy), indicating the power of one's beliefs is immense.
The American Heart Association claims that 1 out of every 10 Americans dies from eating too much salt. But is it true?
More and more women are being prescribed cholesterol-lowering statins and some doctors are even recommending the drugs be added to the water supply or dispensed at the McDonald’s drive-thru windows.
However, postmenopausal women using statins may be increasing their risk of diabetes according to a study published by the Archives of Internal Medicine.
A recent study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found that the cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins increase the risk of diabetes within postmenopausal women by 48%.
This new finding adds to a growing body of clinical evidence that statin drugs are fundamentally diabetogenic, which is not surprising considering the National Library of Medicine contains peer-reviewed, published research on over 300 other known adverse effects associated with their use.
