Two weeks to bowel cancer?
There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in...

3 nutrients for a sharp, ageless brain
For decades mainstream medicine told us that dying neurons are the problem with an aging brain. But the difference between an old brain and a sharp, young brain isn’t just neurons… You see, mental function depends on two kinds of brain cells. Neurons are just half the story. In fact, when scientists studied Albert Einstein’s brain they found he had a wealth of “other” brain cells that accounted for his genius.  I’m talking about “glia,” or “glial” brain cells. Scientists have known about glial cells for a long time. But they thought they were just support ...

Sonic Attacks in Cuba Have Severely Injured U.S. Spies
(HAVANA) — Frightening attacks on U.S. personnel in Havana struck the heart of America’s spy network in Cuba, with intelligence operatives among the first and most severely affected victims, The Associated Press has learned. It wasn’t until U.S. spies, posted to the embassy under diplomatic cover, reported hearing bizarre sounds and experiencing even stranger physical effects that the United States realized something was wrong, individuals familiar with the situation said. While the attacks started within days of President Donald Trump’s surprise election in November, the precise timeline remains un...

Luteolin: How To Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
More than 100 women die of breast cancer in the U.S. every day. It's the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women. But in my opinion, many of those women really die of a tragic medical error. Let me explain… Millions of women in the U.S. have taken Big Pharma's hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Their doctors prescribe it to try to relieve the symptoms of menopause. Like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and weight gain. But what the drug companies try to pass off as hormones are actually synthetic concoctions. They are fake versions of the estrogen and progesterone that your body makes ...

What exactly does ‘healthy’ mean when it comes to food?
Anyone who's ever walked into a grocery store has seen the various health claims on food items calling certain products "healthy." But what exactly does “healthy” mean — and can you rely on it?The Food and Drug Administration is trying to find out. The federal agencyrecently began a public process to redefine how the word "healthy" can be used on food products. It's an issue that would change how companies can label foods and how consumers perceive them.  To help unravel the meaning of the term "healthy," UCLA Health writer Ryan Hatoum spoke with Dana Hunnes, senior diet...

For the first time in my life I live in a place with an in sink garbage disposal. I can take my food scraps, run the water and have them magically ground and sent through the sewer pipes to the wastewater treatment plant. There are enormous potential for resource recovery at these facilities. Here I am referring to both the potential energy in the food scraps and the nutrients and carbon that can be returned to the soil (to grow more food). And much of that potential is being realized. However, most of that recovery happens at the end of the treatment train. Putting your scraps into the sink and expecting their value to...

Improving artichoke root development, transplant quality
(American Society for Horticultural Science) Researchers identified the influence of two nitrogen levels and two fertigation methods (overhead and flotation) of globe artichoke transplants on root/shoot growth and leaf physiology during the nursery period. The study also determined impacts of nursery treatments on the subsequent crop growth and yield of artichoke under three field irrigation methods. Overall, low nitrogen level applied with overhead irrigation in the nursery positively improved the transplant root system and transplant quality of artichoke seedlings.

Diabetes doesn't happen overnight or linearly, but when your metabolic machinery breaks, serious havoc ensues. The massive repercussions can become deadly.

The Pros of Prebiotics
By now, most people are aware of the many benefits of probiotic supplementation, including improved digestive health. However, a relatively new area of study regarding the digestive system concerns prebiotics, which are non-digestible fibers found in certain foods. These carbohydrates, oligosaccharides, provide a food source for the beneficial gut flora (probiotics such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli) and help promote their growth in the colon. To be classified as a prebiotic, the fibers such as oligofructose or inulin must demonstrate that they are fermented by gastrointestinal microflora, they stimulate the growt...
