How To Avoid China ’ s Medicine Monopoly
I want to share a shocking statistic with you… Around 80% of all the pharmaceuticals sold in America — both prescription and over-the-counter — are manufactured in China. I’m talking about drugs for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, blood pressure and blood thinners, diuretics, aspirin, antibiotics, and a big chunk of the world’s insulin and diabetes drugs — just to name a few.1 We don’t even make penicillin anymore. The last penicillin plant in the U.S. closed its doors in 2004. Americans who rely on medicine are now almost entirely at the mercy of a country whose relations with the U.S. have become more ...

Too Little Sleep Destroys DNA?
I talk to my patients about the danger of not sleeping all the time. Unfortunately, it’s a common problem that affects 75 million Americans. People who don’t sleep, or sleep poorly, have up to 400% more accidents that those who get a good night’s rest. Not getting enough sleep also increases your risk of developing chronic diseases. Studies, including a large meta-analysis of 470,000 adults, found that those who slept less than six hours developed a:1,2,3,4,5 48% increase in the incidence of coronary heart disease 30% increased risk of dementia 15% increase in the incidence of stroke 50% cancer risk 17% higher risk ...

TB Preventive Treatment: the Need for Choice
The progress made in HIV prevention is nothing short of a global success story. It is time that TB caught up to HIV. Medicine is simply too advanced for us to tolerate how one disease can be beaten back yet another continues to flourish. Credit: Jeffrey Moyo/IPS. By Violet ChihotaJOHANNESBURG, Jul 26 2023 (IPS) Before COVID-19 came along, the two most lethal infectious diseases were HIV and tuberculosis (TB). Even though HIV still lingers, with 1.5 million people contracting the infection every year, epidemiologists point to the availability of many HIV prevention options as a primary reason for the decreasing caseload. Ac...

5 Minutes To Better Heart Health
Americans are living through a blood pressure crisis. Maybe you, or someone you love, is one of them… In the United States, 65% of adults over the age of 50 are living with above-normal blood pressure – increasing their risk of heart attack and stroke. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Because high blood pressure can also put you at higher risk for developing dementia later in life.1 Of course, Big Pharma doesn’t see this as a big problem.

Sugar Isn ’ t The Problem. So What is?
I recently saw a headline that said sugar was “the biggest dietary enemy we face.” But the truth is…humans evolved to eat sweet foods. It’s how our ancestors knew a food growing in the wild was safe to eat and good for us. In fact, there are no naturally sweet foods that are harmful to your health… Nature wouldn’t let you evolve to like something bad for you. Foods with natural fat, salt, and sugar are some of the healthiest foods you can eat. So if sugar isn’t the problem, what is? I’m sure you know the real health crisis comes from starchy carbohydrates in grains. Humans were never meant to eat grains...
