3 Nutrients That Can Keep Dangerous Statins Away
I get a lot of patients who come down from New York for the winter. Not long ago, one of these patients told me a story about an old mafia trick he’d heard of… Each night, gangs would drive around the city stealing manhole covers. The next morning, like clockwork, city authorities would hire contractors to replace all the missing manhole covers. Of course, the contractors were controlled by the mafia. And the city authorities who hired them were on the take from the very same mob. Fortunes were made. It was a win-win situation. The only losers were New York taxpayers. I’m reminded of this story because Big Pharma...

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.

Break Free From Addictive Junk Food
I’m sure you know how hard it can be to resist certain insulin-spiking foods that score high on the glycemic index – like French fries, potato chips, pasta, and bagels. But why? The answer has nothing to do with weak willpower and it certainly has nothing to do with the latest nonsense from mainstream medicine about having a genetic mutation that makes you crave sweet foods. 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...

The reminders worked. “I don’t recall any of my staff becoming dehydrated,” says Haar, who is now chair of the department of interdisciplinary health sciences at New York Institute of Technology.

‘Personalising stuff that doesn’t matter’: the trouble with the Zoe nutrition app
The wellness project claims to help users make ‘smarter food choices’ based on ‘world-leading science’. But many scientists claim its fee-based services are no better than generic advice“Your body is unique, so is the food you need.” This is the central credo of personalised nutrition (PN), as professed by its leading UK advocate, the health science company Zoe.

What to Eat Before and After Your Workout
Through the ages, humans have fueled their most physically demanding efforts with meaty proteins. Ancient Greeks loaded up on red meat before Olympic contests, and medieval knights recovered from war with venison and pork. The tradition continues today, with world-record-setting weightlifters breakfasting on chicken thighs, eggs, and bacon.
