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 ...

This New 'Compromise' On Repeal Still Won't Protect States That Like Obamacare
There’s a new argument circulating on Capitol Hill, as conservative House Republicans try to win over more moderate colleagues who oppose the GOP’s bill to repeal Obamacare. It goes like this: Thanks to an amendment to the American Health Care Act introduced this past week, states would ultimately have discretion over whether to keep two of the Affordable Care Act’s most popular and important provisions: a prohibition on charging higher premiums to people based on health status and a requirement that all plans cover an “essential” set of benefits. Conservatives argue that these ...

Eight Effective Ways to Dispose of a Body

No evidence organic milk in pregnancy lowers a baby's IQ
Conclusion Previous studies have shown that organic milk produced during the summer has lower iodine content than standard milk. This is said to have been the first study comparing the milks in the winter. It also found iodine concentration is lower in organic milk. During the winter, cows housed indoors receive more iodine supplement through their feed concentrate than grazing cows in the summer. Winter milk is therefore known to contain more iodine than summer milk. It may have been expected there would be less of a difference between organic and non-organic cows during the winter. But organic systems are known to rely ...
