Anew analysis from economic consulting firm Vital Transformation shows that Speaker Nancy Pelosi ’s drug pricing plan,H.R.3, could result in at least 56 fewer innovative medicines for patients over 10 years. The study examined the impact of foreign reference pricing provisions in H.R.3 on treatments and cures from small, emerging biotech companies that rely on venture capital to finance their research and development (R&D).

  Look at Kimberly’s dramatic transformation in appearance after just two months on the Wheat Belly lifestyle: the lateral dimensions of her face are reduced, her cheeks are no longer bloated, the around-the-eye swelling is gone and her eyes are bigger. She lost “only” 20 pounds but, judging by the “deflation” of her facial features, it looks more like 100 pounds—this is what happens when you reverse the body-wide inflammation caused by wheat/grain consumption. “I didn’t recognize myself! This side-by-side spoke volumes! I’ve lost about 20 pounds so far. I was...

One noteworthy difference between the biochemistry of young and old individuals is a greater presence of oxidative molecules, resulting from dysfunctional cells, inflammatory processes, and other issues. As a consequence, there are also many more oxidized molecules, changed from their original structure and now either broken or actively harmful. Cells clear out this sort of oxidative damage constantly, and are quite efficient at this sort of maintenance until levels of oxidization become high, but they nonetheless struggle with some particularly toxic or resilient oxidized molecules, even in smaller amounts. A good example...
