Why Fish Oil Supplements Can Be Dangerous for the Heart
Most people are familiar with the best things to eat for a healthy heart: vegetables, low-fat dairy, and lean proteins like fish. Some fish like salmon also have the added benefit of being full of omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats that can help to raise good cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Or so we thought. Studies on the benefits of fish oil, and fish oil supplements, haven’t been as conclusive when it comes to actually preventing heart disease for people who aren’t at higher risk.

Scientists Are Studying Weight-Loss Drugs for Way More Than Weight Loss
The new weight-loss drugs Wegovy and Zepbound are in high demand, and the clamoring will only increase in coming years, experts predict. That’s because drugs like these, which rely at least in part on the appetite-regulating hormone GLP-1, are being investigated not just for weight loss and diabetes, but also for a wide range of other conditions. “Weight loss is only part of it,” says Dr. Ian Neeland, chair of the American Heart Association’s obesity science committee and an associate professor of medicine at Case Western Reserve University.

African Tree Fruit Beats Dangerous New “ Diet ” Drugs
There’s a hot new trend in the world of quick-fix weight loss solutions… I’m sure you’ve heard about it on the news. I’m talking about the diabetes drug Ozempic. Right now, demand for this drug is so high that even patients who are prescribed it to control their blood sugar can’t get their hands on it. (Of course, I don’t recommend using any Big Pharma drug to control your blood sugar.)

Break Free From Addictive Junk Food

The real reason your brain craves junk food is far more disturbing… In a breakthrough study, researchers at Yale and the University of Cologne reveal that your brain has been trained to crave and consume processed foods. If you don’t do som...
