Some of the most powerful medicines on the planet are masquerading around as foods and spices. While they do not lend themselves to being patented, nor will multi-billion dollar human clinical trials ever be funded to prove them efficacious, they have been used since time immemorial to both nourish our bodies, and to prevent and treat disease.

Ever since the biotechnology industry first made inroads into South America back in the 1990s, rates of birth defects, cancer and other illnesses have steadily increased, a direct result of pesticides and herbicides being sprayed near residential areas. And one group of mothers from Argentina, known as “Mothers of Ituzaingo,” is demanding that the industry’s largest player, Continue reading
When the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945, 21 healthcare workers were attending 70 tuberculosis patients in a hospital 1.4 km from ground zero. None of them suffered from acute radiation poisoning.
Dr. Tatuichiro Akizuki, a physician at the hospital, credited this miracle to the fact that everyone was consuming daily cups of miso soup garnished with wakame seaweed.
In a new comprehensive review of both epidemiological and experimental studies, Japanese researcher Hiromitsu Watanabe from Continue reading
Cancer treatment with chemotherapy yields disappointing results for most cancer cell types. Perhaps we should be exploring alternative cancer treatments, such as one proposed by Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, a keynote speaker at a medical conference I attended five years ago in Denver Colorado (Boulderfest conference July 17-20 2008.)
Nicholas Gonzalez, MD Continue reading
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has once again been caught removing pertinent but indicting information about vaccines from its website. This time it involves the infamous polio vaccine, up to 98 million doses of which have been exposed as containing a cancer-causing virus that is now believed to be responsible for causing millions of cancers in America, according to the CDC.
The information was posted on an official CDC fact sheet entitled Cancer, Continue reading

Most milk substitutes such as soy milk, almond milk, hemp milk, etc. are thought to be good alternatives to whole milk, especially for lactose intolerant people. These ‘milks’ come in different flavors, and their packaging gives us the distinct impression that drinking alternative milks promises to create lasting health. Milk alternatives even taste divine. However, some of them contain carrageenan, Continue reading
Late last week, a story broke that revealed glyphosate — the chemical name of Roundup herbicide — multiplies the proliferation of breast cancer cells by 500% to 1300%… even at exposures of just a few parts per trillion (ppt).
The study, published in Food and Chemical Toxicology, is entitled, “Glyphosate induces human breast cancer cells growth via estrogen receptors.” Continue reading
- While iron is essential for human life, too much iron can cause heart disease and cancer. This is actually far more common than iron deficiency
- Checking your iron levels is one of the most important tests that everyone should have done on a regular basis as part of a preventive, Continue reading
Over the past decades there have been a number of great steps taken in cancer research and treatment. Doctors are now able to improve the quality and length of life for patients at rates that were unimaginable only years ago. This increased knowledge leads to greater education for the masses, offering preventative strategies and ways to Continue reading
There is plenty of clinical and nutritional evidence that milk, this hailed “natural” drink, is the source of numerous immunological, gastrointestinal and perhaps neurological disorders. While it is important to acknowledge these facts, it is equally necessary to remember that the milk we are talking about is a highly processed industrial product that only remotely resembles the natural variety.
Depending on the pasteurization method, raw milk can be heated at 161 F up to 212 F Continue reading
Irving Stone was an early thinker and writer about vitamin C (its scientific name is ascorbic acid). He knew it would be an uphill battle to change the way Continue reading
Depression is a major health issue in this country, impacting 20% of Americans at some point in their lives. What’s interesting, though, is that it appears many cases may be avoided, or at least limited, by making lifestyle changes.
As the factors of depression are examined more closely, increasing amounts of preventative measures are coming to light. Providing therapeutic opportunities existing beyond pharmaceutical and psychological treatments, these factors can play Continue reading
