Billions With Nutrition Deficiency!?
Almost no one gets enough selenium. Officially, at least a billion — with a B — people have a selenium deficiency.1 But I suspect the numbers are much higher than that. You can’t get enough selenium from food alone anymore. That’s true even if you eat a healthy, varied diet. And you can thank Big Agra for that. With their harsh pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and single-crop strategy, these massive farms have stripped the nutrients out of the soil. No nutrients in the soil mean no nutrients in the food. All of this makes it difficult — if not impossible — to get even some of the daily selenium you need to ...

Boost Your Thyroid Health With Natural Supplements
Your thyroid is under constant attack, and traditional doctors don’t have a clue how to fix it. In fact, most physicians don’t even recognize the problem in the first place — especially when it comes to men. And that makes thyroid disease the most under-diagnosed condition in the country. I’ve seen this play out for decades: People see a traditional doctor and get a thyroid test that measures levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone. When doctors see a “normal” result, they’ll tell you there’s “nothing wrong” when you actually have a form of hypothyroidism. But not the form you might think. You could be on...

Secrets of Tibet ’s hot-spring snakes revealed
Jia-Tang Li knows firsthand how tough life can be on the Tibetan Plateau. The air at 4500 meters is so thin that just a few steps take one’s breath away. Despite bitter cold, the Sun is intense enough to quickly burn the skin. Yet the small grayish-brown snakes this herpetologist at the Chengdu Institute of Biology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences studies have been thriving in the plateau’s northern reaches for millions of years.
