Here ’s How Drinking Hot Tea Could Increase Your Risk of Cancer
Smoking cigarettes and drinking too much alcohol both raise your risk for developing esophageal cancer, which affects the tube connecting the throat to the stomach. Now, a new study published Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine finds another lifestyle linked to the cancer, this one more surprising: drinking hot tea, if people also smoke and drink alcohol. Among people who regularly smoked cigarettes and drank at least one drink per day, drinking hot tea was linked to a five-times higher risk of developing esophageal cancer, compared to those who didn’t do any of those three habits.

Herbal Supplements May Be Dangerous When You Take Certain Prescription Drugs
A number of common herbal supplements, including green tea and Ginkgo biloba, can interact with prescription medications, according to a new research review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. These interactions can make drugs less effective—and may even be dangerous or deadly.

Out From Under the FDA ’s Heel
A medical revolution is happening as we speak… And the great state of Texas is leading the charge. It started because people like you finally got fed up with the chokehold the FDA has on medicine. Let me explain… The FDA is controlled by bureaucrats who were hired from Big Pharma and the medical establishment. They refuse to approve life-saving therapies without years of tightly controlled clinical trials. In the meantime, real people are suffering. And even dying. But Texas is on track to become the first state to explicitly back stem cell therapies. And it’s about time states took this power away from...

Outfox Your “ Aging ” Gene
Some people just seem to have all the luck when it comes to getting old. Like my 83-year-old patient who drinks a little too much Scotch, but still has a 3-handicap in golf.

We all have something called a FOXO3 gene. It helps protect us against aging.
