Vitamin D May Reduce Asthma Severity; Smell Test Could Predict Dementia Risk
BOSTON (CBS) – A common vitamin could reduce the severity of asthma attacks in people with the condition. London researchers reviewed a number of previous studies involving almost a thousand patients with asthma and found that supplementation with vitamin D reduced the need for ER visits and hospitalizations for asthma by 50 percent. Patients on vitamin D also appeared to reduce the need for treatment with steroids by 30 percent. Most of the study subjects were adults with mild to moderate asthma so it is unclear what the effects might be with children or people with more severe asthma. And the patients were continui...

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 ...

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.

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 ...
