Over 50 scientific references say this important issue shall not be censored any longer
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.
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
Research from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has determined that eating 75 grams of walnuts a day for three months increases men's sperm count and fertility
Few foods have such a depth of clinical human research supporting their use in the prevention and mitigation of disease as omega-3 fatty acids. In this review, 61 of the most compelling are highlighted by Pat Robinson, the founder of Heal Thyself!
Two large research reviews by medical scientists have determined that omega-3 fatty acids from plants reduce the incidence of heart disease and heart attacks significantly better than fish oil.
Without a doubt, organic produce is the superior choice compared to GMO and other conventional varieties, but do organic meats share the same benefits? The answer may surprise you.
On July 10, 2013, major media headlines and news stories claimed “Too Much Fish Oil Might Boost Prostate Cancer Risk.” Wow, that sure seems fishy given all of the positive health benefits linked to fish oil intake.
In the same way that you can not reduce the complex and nuanced field of human experience to the thoughts, words memories formed from it, a meal can not be reduced to its parts, its ingredients, without losing its soul.
Researchers discover that ginger, an ancient herbal remedy used for cooking and medicinal purposes, supports the regeneration of cellular mitochondria and may reduce the effects of mitochondrial dysfunction
Candida (Yeast) is a late sign of impaired gut health.
Candida is associated with craving simple carbs (white foods--pasta, bread, rice, and all sugars) which feed the yeast. Candida develops for many reasons. Basically, it is a 'helper' attempting to create balance in the gut, generally due to antibiotics, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and sterile foods.
We can make candida obsolete and unnecessary by rebalancing gut microbials.
Today, healthy fatty acid deficiency is epidemic. This deficiency leads to cardiovascular and immune issues and other disorders. What do you do if you're HFA deficient?
Nutrient deficiencies can cause countless ailments and diseases. However, eating the proper foods and supplementing certain nutrients can reverse poor health and reduce your risk of illness
Several decades ago the modern world went crazy with its dietary habits. People were told to stop eating fats because they led to weight gain and heart disease. The government was behind this advice as well as the American Heart Association, hospitals, manufacturers of cholesterol-lowering drugs, food manufacturers, dairies and doctors.
Doctors, patients, and readers are often completely confused about fat, clinging to misguided misinformation that prevents them from understanding the latest science to lose weight and achieve optimal health
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?
Do your eyes frequently ache after staring at your tablet or smartphone? It’s not just the strain of looking at a small screen. It may be a sign of irreversible damage being done to your eyes—cellular damage that can lead to blindness

By now, I'm sure you've seen the USA Today article entitled, "Coconut oil isn't healthy. It's never been healthy". Fear-mongering, attention-grabbing headlines certainly sell copy, but do not make for evidence-informed, high quality science reporting.
Increasingly popular derogatory invectives like "quack" and "snake oil" actually have deeper historical roots than those who use them are aware of, and which indict the very conventional medical system they have uncritically adopted as the only one worth practicing.
There is a growing awareness that the unintended, adverse health effects of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs far outweigh their purported benefits. But new research now indicates that these chemicals may even be interfering with the heart-protective effects of beneficial fatty acids in those who are on them.
