We are bombarded every day by harmful radiation from medical tests like X-rays and CT scans, radon gas and radiation from space. And there is always worry about fallout from disasters like the meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. How do you protect yourself from radiation?
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.
Omega-3 fatty acids have a wide range of researched therapeutic properties, many of which are applicable to vascular disease. Omega-3 research is cited in its connection to cardiac mortality risk, peripheral artery disease and hypertension.
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.
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.
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.
Hundreds of drugs contribute to liver toxicity even when used in correct doses. Chinese medicine suggests the tiny sesame seed and its oil may protect the liver from damage.
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.
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.
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?
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
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.
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.
A recent international study published in the highest ranking cardiovascular journal in the world confirms what we’ve been saying at GreenMedInfo for over a decade: LDL cholesterol is not an accurate predictor of future cardiovascular events and statin drugs are useless at best, toxic to the heart at worst.
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!
Sperm quality and count are both important causes of male infertility, but both have been plummeting over the past several years
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.

The manufacturers of the controversial veggie burger just announced that in the future, due to "high demand" for the product, its plant-based patties will be made using GMO soy
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.
With chemotherapy resistant cancers on the rise, and conventional drug treatments often doing more harm than good, research on omega 3 fatty acids reversing multidrug resistance in colon cancer cells holds all the more promise.
A study published in the May, 2015 issue of the Archives of Medical Research indicates that it can help patients with ulcerative colitis
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.
