By Julie Fidler Researchers point out a correlation between saturated fat consumption and lung cancer, suggesting that people who eat a diet high in saturated fat (found in butter and beef) have a greater risk of developing lung cancer than those who eat a low-fat diet. Smoking increases the risk even further. [1] Researchers found that study participants who ate the most total fat and saturated fat were 14% more likely to go on to have the disease, compared to those who limited their fat consumption. The risk also increased 15% among current and former smokers, the study found. Study [More]
By Julie Fidler An anticancer drug known as paclitaxel may actually cause breast cancer to spread to the lungs, according to the rather horrifying results of a recent study. Earlier in 2017, a study revealed that chemotherapy may cause cellular changes in both a breast cancer mouse model and in a small number of human breast cancer sufferers. Tsonwin Hai, a professor of biological chemistry and pharmacology, and a team of colleagues have built on this research by studying the effects of the chemotherapy drug on the spread of breast cancer cells to the lungs. Paclitaxel is one of the [More]
By Sierra Bright You eat healthily, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly, cleanse your skin properly and moisturize, but no matter what you do, it seems your skin is still experiencing breakouts. While you may think you’re doing everything right, there is one important step you may be missing, as many women don’t even think about it: dirty makeup brushes. Those brushes could very well be the root of your problem, as they can harbor all sorts of gross stuff, from toxins in sweat and bacteria to oil, dirt, grime, dead skin cells, old makeup residue, germs and more.

By drdavidjenkins There are countless reasons why drinking tea can be beneficial to both your health and well-being, including that it is rich in antioxidants, contains less harmful caffeine than coffee, and is even high in oxygen radical absorbance capacity, which means that it has the ability to combat free radicals in the body. Perhaps most amazingly, certain types of tea can even act as a natural muscle relaxer for anyone suffering from muscle spasms, cramp, or other muscular ailments. Chamomile tea, in particular, has shown a strong effectiveness for remedying tight muscles, and for providing a general sensation of [More]
By Lori Alton, staff writer (NaturalHealth365) Evidence is accumulating that chronic inflammation appears to be at the root of many degenerative disease conditions, including heart disease – the number one killer in the United States. Often downplayed by conventional cardiology, low levels of the nutrient coenzyme Q10 can worsen inflammation – possibly triggering heart attacks and strokes. This is very important news – because we know that healthy levels of this vitamin-like substance can have lifesaving effects on people with cardiovascular disease. To this day, it’s still a ‘radical concept’ within …read more Source: Natural Health 365     
By Lori Alton, staff writer (NaturalHealth365) When it comes to natural therapies for battling chronic disease, the use of molecular hydrogen is probably not the first to spring to mind. But, that may be changing – with researchers reporting that this tasteless, odorless gas could be the key to defeating devastating conditions such as cancer, autoimmune disease, diabetes and arthritis. Recent scientific studies have highlighted molecular hydrogen’s remarkable ability to reduce oxidative stress – believed to be at the root of 90 percent of all modern disease.

Over 200,000 documents – including study summaries, internal secret memos, meeting minutes and sworn testimonies – attest to the fact that both industry and regulators were aware of the extreme toxicity of many chemical products, and conspired to hide this information from the public.

By Julie Fidler All your life, you’ve been told to finish a course of antibiotics, even if you’re feeling better. But now that antibiotic resistance has become such a serious problem, some British doctors are questioning whether that advice is doing more harm than good. [1] Health experts from Brighton and Sussex Medical School, the University of Oxford, and other institutions write in an analysis in the BMJ that there is no evidence to support the notion that cutting short a course of antibiotics encourages drug resistance. In fact, they said, it’s taking more antibiotics than needed that leads to [More]
By Lindsay Sheehan Unlike foods, beverages, cosmetics, and personal care products, manufacturers of household cleaning supplies are not mandated by federal law to disclose the ingredients in their products. This lack of oversight often means that anytime we do routine house cleaning, we are coming into contact with toxic chemicals through inhalation and skin contact. Rinsing cleansers down the drain also means these pollutants enter water sources, impacting untold aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna. Unfortunately, our standard advice to read the label doesn’t apply here. Pick up a cleaning product and more likely than not, you won’t see a [More]
By Sierra Bright If you detest being around mosquitoes, you’re not alone, and it’s not without reason. After all, their bites come with a pretty substantial risk. They can infect humans with the Zika virus, yellow fever, dengue, malaria, and other diseases. In fact, they kill more humans, than human murderers do, which makes them the deadliest creature on Earth. There is no other species, including our own, that’s responsible for the loss of as many human lives every year as mosquitoes are. While humans murder some 475,000 other people each year, the diseases these insects carry and transmit to [More]

By Hesh Goldstein Hypoglycemia is probably one of the most widespread disorders in America and the civilized nations today. It is not a disease as such, but rather a symptom that arises from a wide range of hormonal abnormalities and imbalances reflecting the irregular function of many glands and organs. Unfortunately, it often goes undiagnosed and its multitude of symptoms are frequently labeled as emotional or psychological in origin. The symptoms are usually episodic, being related to the time and content of the previous meal and are usually improved by eating. Symptoms include nervousness, irritability, emotional problems, fatigue, depression, craving [More]
By Debbie Wolfe You’ve made the switch to eating healthier, whole foods, and you’re exercising regularly too, but have you considered that you may be subjecting your health, and possibly that of our family’s, to the dangers of chemical cleaning products? The majority of store-bought household cleaners are loaded with harmful chemicals – and that doesn’t include just the obvious ones, like drain and oven cleaners, but even surface cleaners and air fresheners. The average household contains some 62 toxic chemicals, environmental experts report. We’re exposed to them routinely — from the phthalates in synthetic fragrances to the noxious fumes [More]

By Julie Fidler For many years, some members of the scientific community have been absolutely engrossed in trying to solve one of the biggest health conundrums in the United States: how to get more people to donate their organs. And if that can’t happen on a grand scale, well, scientists are turning to cloned pigs for organs. In 2016, there were just 33,600 organ transplants, while there were 116,800 patients on transplant waiting lists. Since you can’t force people to become organ donors, scientists figure the only other option is to look elsewhere for organs. Now, through gene-editing and cloned [More]
By Admin – Orissa by Paul Fassa Health Impact News What some are claiming could be called a super nutrient, or panacea, for many ailments is known as trimethylglycine (TMG) or glycine betaine. TMG was discovered to be beneficial for heart health back in the 1950s because of its ability to reduce high levels of homocysteine, which creates a higher risk for heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes. TMG also contributes to promoting CoQ-10, a heart health coenzyme that hadn’t been discovered until well after the 1950s. But this ability to lower that valid high risk marker for heart disease [More]
