Maybe the healthiest wine in the world
When I was in South Africa last year, I met a revolutionary winemaker… His wine was completely organic. It had no toxins, and it contained powerful antioxidant properties. It was infused with a local herb called rooibos, also known as “red bush.” You may have seen rooibos tea on supermarket shelves. I immediately knew this wine should be made widely available in America — and I’m still hopeful a distributor will bring it here. I enjoy a nice glass of red wine from time to time, but the trouble with most of the wines sold in America is that they’re loaded with dangerous chemicals. Winema...

Resveratrol stimulates the metabolic reprogramming of human CD4+ T cells to enhance effector function
The polyphenol resveratrol activates the deacetylase Sirt1, resulting in various antioxidant, chemoprotectant, neuroprotective, cardioprotective, and anti-inflammatory properties. We found that at high concentrations of resveratrol, human CD4+ T cells showed defective antigen receptor signaling and arrest at the G1 stage of the cell cycle, whereas at low concentrations, cells were readily activated and exhibited enhanced Sirt1 deacetylase activity. Nevertheless, low-dose resveratrol rapidly stimulated genotoxic stress in the T cells, which resulted in engagement of a DNA damage response pathway that depended on the kinase ...

Modern medicine has no cure for autoimmune diseases — and, sadly, most doctors don’t understand them. I’m talking about disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis (MS) and more. In all, there are about 80 autoimmune diseases affecting organs throughout the body. They occur when your own immune system becomes overactive and attacks your body instead of diseases and foreign invaders. The standard mainstream treatment for most autoimmune disorders relies on Big Pharma drugs that cover up symptoms or suppress your immun...

They make breathing difficult and can cause wheezing or coughing. Most doctors will tell you that smoking is the major culprit. But even if you never smoked you are still at risk of COPD.

The vitamin ergothioneine: an antioxidant for oxygen-free areas?
(University of Basel) Chemists at the University of Basel have been able to show for the first time that anaerobic bacteria can produce the vitamin ergothioneine in the absence of oxygen.

How Air Pollution Can Lead To Weight Gain

One group was exposed to Beijing’s super toxic air. That city has some of the worst air pollution in the world. The second group breathed filtered air. The two groups ate exactly the same diet. After 19 days, the rats exposed to the air pollution were 18% fatter. Their LDL levels were 50% higher and their triglycerides were 46% higher. This indicates high levels of fat in their blood. To make matters worse, their lungs were 25% heavier...
