McDonald's Is Stripping Artificial Preservatives From Their McNuggets
McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets are going au naturel. Well, as naturel as a deep-fried chunks of ground chicken can get. The global fast food chain is experimenting with a recipe for the iconic McNugget that ditches artificial preservatives in an effort to make a more simple product that sets parents’ minds at ease. The new McNuggets are still in the testing phase and are only available in about 140 restaurants in Washington and Oregon, reports Crain’s Chicago Business. Sources told the business news site that the company hopes to make them available across the U.S. before the beginning of the 2016 Olympics,...

This Vitamin Can Save Your Brain
Your brain has amazing abilities. And it can heal itself. That’s not something you’re likely to hear from mainstream medicine — especially if you or a loved one suffer from the effects of stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or another form of dementia. Here at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, I’ve seen many people with brain damage. And, sadly, most have been deemed “hopeless” by so-called medical experts. But I can tell you there is nothing hopeless about dementia — no matter what its cause. With the right nutrients, there are times when brain damage can be re...

Three food grade colorants identified for citrus
(American Society for Horticultural Science) Research demonstrated that three out of five oil-soluble natural red/orange colorants resulted in peel colors similar to the industry standard Citrus Red No.2 dye (CR2) when tested on test papers and fresh oranges. Annatto extract, paprika extract, and paprika oleoresin produced the dark orange color favored by consumers. Annatto was determined to be relatively stable under storage and simulated marketing conditions. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

The Vitamin That Defeats Dementia…
Technology is a gift, and I appreciate all the options we have today that our ancestors could not even imagine. But there’s a price that comes with it. Toxins from our industrial world are changing the playing field, and one of the most troubling side effects is showing up in my patients at a very young age. You see, my patients with early-onset dementia have been getting younger and younger. I used to see the disease start in people in their late 50s. But now I’m seeing more and more patients in their late 40s. Now, a new study in the Surgical Neurology International journal confirms what I’ve found. Res...

The Easter Bunny Could Soon Bring Safer Candy With Natural Food Colors
Candy left by the Easter Bunny on Sunday morning comes in festive hues of blue, green, yellow and pink, sparking smiles from many kids. This brightly colored loot may be less welcome, however, to a growing number of parents who worry about the potential health hazards the colors reflect. Could the Blue 1, Red 40 and Yellow 5 dyes, for example, found in Peeps marshmallow chicks, Whoppers Mini Robin Eggs, Jelly Belly's Kids Mix and countless other sweets harm their children? To be safe, many like Courtney Sucato of Phoenix, are no longer taking chances with the man-made additives, which are generally derived from petrole...

This Vitamin Could Save Your Life
For years, I’ve recommended that my patients take a special family of super-nutrients with the power to boost their health and save their lives in at least a half a dozen ways. I’m talking about tocotrienols, an especially potent form of vitamin E. Tocotrienols, which comprise four out of the eight types of vitamin E, are powerful antioxidants that until recently were ignored by mainstream medicine. But the patients at my wellness clinic and regular readers of my newsletter will know that I’ve recommended them as a critical nutrient for years. And I do it because almost daily I observe the effects of the...

Kraft American Cheese Singles Have Been Labeled A Health Food By Professional Nutritionists (Not As A Joke)
Kraft Singles, a type of processed cheese that comes individually wrapped in a thin, plastic film, is the first food to receive the new "Kids Eat Right" label -- a stamp of approval designed by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to help families make healthier decisions in the grocery store. The "Kids Eat Right" campaign is meant to "raise awareness that the diets of America's kids are lacking in three important components– dairy, calcium and vitamin D," according to a statement from AND. But the news has been met with skepticism, if not outright derision. At Mother Jones, food a...

I Just Turned 58, But…
The knowledge that there’s a control mechanism for how we age takes the chains off of us. Telomere biology sets us free because we’re not just destined to do “what our genes say.” Instead, we have a movie script. Some scenes are sketched in, but you get to direct the movie and decide how you want it to come out. For me, I turned 58 a few months ago, but I’ll tell you… I sure feel a lot younger. Who would have thought it could be that simple? That it would be possible to keep a youthful, disease-free body by maintaining – or lengthening – telomeres, the tiny bits of genetic m...

Geranylgeraniol suppresses the viability of human prostate cancer cells and HMG CoA reductase
Researchers at Texas Woman's University have shown that a diterpene geranylgeraniol found in linseed oil, Cedrela toona wood oil, sucupira branca fruit oil and more recently, annatto seed oil, suppressed the viability of human DU145 prostate carcinoma cells via cell cycle arrest at the G1 phase and the initiation of apoptosis. This finding, reported in the November 2013 issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine, supplies recent evidence supporting the tumor-suppressive potential of dietary isoprenoids, a class of phytochemicals encompassing ~55,000 mevalonate-derived secondary metabolites.
