Editor's note. This article is being republished for the benefit of our readers. If you are seriously taking charge of your own health care diet is your first consideration. We are what we eat. Now, thanks to the perseverance of Dr. Séralini and his team, you can see what the impact of the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup(used on GMO crops) has on the same type of rats that Monsanto used to conduct their 3 month study which was used to get FDA approval in the first place. Séralini's study was a 2 year study as opposed to Monsanto's 3 month study and has now passed probably the most stringent of examinations of any study to this author's knowledge. We absolutely recommend you read this study for yourself and then draw your own conclusions. The science does indeed speak for itself.
Open Letter from World Scientists to All Governments Concerning Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)Written by Admin
- The scientists are extremely concerned about the hazards of GMOs to biodiversity, food safety, human and animal health, and demand a moratorium on environmental releases in accordance with the precautionary principle.
- They are opposed to GM crops that will intensify corporate monopoly, exacerbate inequality and prevent the essential shift to sustainable agriculture that can provide food security and health around the world.
- They call for a ban on patents of life-forms and living processes which threaten food security, sanction biopiracy of indigenous knowledge and genetic resources and violate basic human rights and dignity.
- They want more support on research and development of non-corporate, sustainable agriculture that can benefit family farmers all over the world.
The media puts a lot of attention on the treatment of illnesses, but very little on those who do a lot of the treating—the healthy spouses (and other family members, like adult children and siblings) who take care of their sick loved ones. In my practice, it’s not uncommon for me to see caregiver-spouses who literally had to become sick themselves to avoid burning out.
Well, you don’t have to get to the point where your body takes over to protect you from yourself. By following the four rules below, you can stay healthy and happy while taking loving care of your seriously ill loved one.
Dr. Weston Price practiced dentistry over seventy years ago in Cleveland, Ohio. His techniques and knowledge of a whole approach to health were years ahead of his time not only as far as dentistry, but regarding medicine in general. Consequently, he became a popular and influential dentist as well as Chairman of the American Dental Association's Research Department. He is also known as the father of nutrition.
Curious as to the exact cause of cavities and malformed dental arches that resulted in crooked, overcrowded teeth, Dr. Price began investigating a potential connection to diet and nutrition. Microscopes and laboratories were devoid of the answers he searched for. Dr Price felt that the most logical way to research was to observe different cultures. It was necessary to compare those societies that ate modern diets consisting mostly of processed and refined foods such as white flour products, sugar, white rice, canned foods, and fats with those that regularly consumed a more nutritious diet, and where most of the food was grown locally.
If I had a dollar for every not-so-pleasant discussion I’ve had over fluoride with various dentists over the years, well I’d be a lot better off than I am now. It’s not that I find talking about fluoride unpleasant, despite the fact that there isn’t much good I can say about the stuff, it’s more about the “Oh great another health nut” expression on the dentist’s face every time I refuse to have it anywhere near my mouth. We are led to believe fluoride is healthy for us, so much so that the very establishments that were put in place to protect us, introduce the stuff into the public water system in order to prevent dental decay. How noble of them if it were actually true.
Green tea has been consumed for more than three thousand years for both its refreshing and health promoting benefits. In fact, research demonstrated that the polyphenol catechins in green tea gives it biological and medicinal qualities, including its anti oxidant, antimicrobial, blood thinning, and cholesterol lowering and anti-cancer activities, as well as its ability to promote weight loss.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 This article will focus on the effects of green tea on weight loss, with specific focus given to research on green tea phytosomes. But first, let’s take a brief look at the types of naturally occurring compounds found in green tea.
About half of all Americans, no matter how healthy they are, are more likely to develop oral health problems.
Women need to be aware that they are at higher risk for periodontal disease and gum disease during puberty, pregnancy, their menstrual cycle each month, and then menopause—let’s face it, we’re at risk most of our lives. We now also know there is a correlation between high hormone levels in the body and inflammation in the gums surrounding the teeth as well as in the epidemic numbers of the disorder fibromyalgia—which afflicts mostly women.
We all know that summer can be fun-filled and hot, and as with any season, it takes awareness and actions to maintain balance. Here are some ideas for Staying Healthy in Summer.
1. Stay cool and hydrated. Drink water, at least two to four cups (16–32 ounces) upon rising, and similar amounts if you are going out for activities and exercise. Carry water with you in a glass jar or a hard plastic container (more stable polycarbonate rather than polyethylene that leaches plastic into the water). You may also use a traveling water filter. Check your local water stores or www.realgoods.com. Most people need two to three quarts of liquid per day, and more in hot weather or with sweating and exercise. Review Chapter 1 of Staying Healthy with Nutrition for further information on water.

Many of the most common medical conditions affecting infants have some connection to the digestive system. Over the next several articles I will discuss many of these common medical conditions individually and provide treatment recommendations for them. However, because the digestive system plays such a crucial role with many of these conditions I feel it is very important to start this series with an investigation into the digestive system of an infant.
Babies have very delicate digestive systems. The tissues and organs of the digestive system are no different than any other tissue in the body. In utero, in infancy, and even during childhood these tissues and organs are immature and need time to develop to their full integrity. This means that during the early stages of life it is crucial to support and nurture the digestive system so that it develops to its full potential.
