In the aftermath of the defeat of Proposition 37 in California, many more Americans are now aware of the existence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their unlabeled presence throughout the food supply. But with this awareness has come a lot of confusion, as the processed food and biotechnology industries have spent a lot of money and effort spreading propaganda and lies about GMOs. So to help set the record straight, we have outlined seven specific ways in which GMOs damage animals, plants, soil, and Continue reading
If you use certain sinus medicine products developed by Zicam™, you could be damaging your sense of smell. Anosmia (loss of smell) has been reported in more than 100 cases of these over-the-counter (OTC) remedies. Some experienced anosmia after the first dose!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued the makers of Zicam™ a warning and has advised consumers to stop using these products immediately. Continue reading
A new study has found that eating even a single junk food meal damages your arteries. Once again, we find that saturated fat is a formidable enemy to our overall health. And, once again, we find that sticking to a Mediterranean diet is the best health option.
Junk food meals are, by definition, high in saturated fat, which is detrimental to many of the body’s processes, especially the cardiovascular system. Meanwhile, Continue reading
Today’s health advice comes in the form of an herbal cream. Calendula, or pot marigold, is a hardy annual herb. These plants have brightly colored flowers and you are likely familiar with them. They are a staple in many front- yard gardens. The petals of the flowers are actually edible and can be used either fresh or dry to add color to rice and salads. Continue reading
Did You Know…that dozens of everyday “health” foods containing brain-damaging poisons, which seriously threaten your health—and such foods are not regulated by the FDA or other government agencies?
“Your food can be a killer—and I don’t mean just the junk food”, says Dr. David Blyweiss. That’s because processed foods—even so-called healthy foods—contain additives known as “excitotoxins” that cause serious neurodegenerative damage like Parkinson’s disease…Alzheimer’s…dementia…Lou Gehrig’s…multiple sclerosis…lupus…and more.
“The main culprits are the additives monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartate (a component of NutraSweet) that lace our foods to enhance their taste,” says Dr. Blyweiss. Excitotoxins have been used for decades to pump up the flavor of processed foods like soups, snacks, sauces, gravies, and also many low-fat and vegetarian “health” foods. Continue reading
It is becoming increasingly difficult for fluoride fanatics to defend the practice of artificial water fluoridation, thanks to a plethora of new reports highlighting its many dangers. A new study published in the journal Neurologia reveals that chronic exposure to, and ingestion of, the synthetic fluoride chemicals added to water supplies can cause serious brain and neurological damage. Confirming several others recently published, the study further exposes the lunacy of deliberately adding toxic chemicals to the water supply in the name of saving teeth.
“The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly the nervous system,” write researchers Valdez-Jiminez, et al. in their report. “Fluoride is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which may cause biochemical and functional changes in the nervous system during pregnancy, Continue reading
Virtually every medicine can have side effects, and with so many being used by so many older adults, the potential for harm is high. Patients need to know that just because lots of medicines don’t require prescriptions doesn’t mean they’re harmless. Aspirin is a classic example. When you combine all the different forms of aspirins we are talking about over 15,000 deaths a year in the United States alone.
It is not ethical to try to study such combinations and effects for all such studies involve poisoning the subjects studied with multiple poisons. It is no longer appropriate to consider drugs or nutritional medical agents in isolation because the needs of patients are many meaning Continue reading

Protect your peepers with a vision-ary diet! Our eyes require multiple nutrients to function optimally. Start with these:
• Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Continue reading
Those who have been following NaturalNews for several years have heard me rave about Ron Teeguarden and Dragon Herbs. His company is considered by many to be the most pristine source of tonic herbs and Chinese herbs available in North America. Ron himself is a true-to-life “guru” in Chinese medicinal herbs and he is one of the most knowledgeable people you’ll ever hear speak on the subject.
You can listen to my 2008 interview with Ron on our Podcast page: http://www.naturalnews.com/Index-Po…
As a follower of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a regular consumer of Chinese herbs, I have also been a follower of Ron Teeguarden for many years. I’ve interviewed him several times and published articles and interviews about him Continue reading
Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1.400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool. The consequences of intermarriage between first cousins often have serious impact on the offspring’s intelligence, sanity, health and on their surroundings
The most famous example of inbreeding is in ancient Egypt, where several Pharaonic dynasties collapsed after a couple of hundred years. In order to keep wealth and power within the family, the Pharaohs often married their own sister or half-sister and after a handful of generations the offspring were mentally and physically unfit to rule.

According to the National Association of County Health Officials (NACHO), an independent affiliate of the National Association of Counties representing 1,300 local health departments, mercury poses the following dangers: “Mercury can be extremely toxic, especially to infants and children. Mercury occurs in three forms: the elemental form (also referred to as metallic), inorganic salt, and organic compounds called methyl mercury. Each form has characteristic pathways of exposure and unique health effects. Mercury affects the nervous system, causing brain, nerve, kidney, and lung damage. Though symptoms may be absent or non-specific, a fact that will hinder diagnosis, they frequently include skin rashes, particularly redness and peeling of the hands and feet in children; tremors; muscular weakness; inability to walk; convulsions; personality changes; memory loss; and in extreme cases, death. The developing fetus is the most sensitive to the effects of mercury, and so women of child-bearing age are the population of greatest concern. Children of women exposed to relatively high levels of methyl mercury during pregnancy Continue reading
LONDON – A new device is set to revolutionize the way a patient’s blood pressure (BP) is measured.
Developed by scientists at the University of Leicester and Health STATS – a medical device company in Singapore – it gives a more accurate reading than the current method used.
The device monitors the pressure close to the heart, the central aortic systolic pressure or CASP, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reports, quoting a Leicester University statement.
Bryan Williams, professor of medicine at Leicester University, said: “It is not going to replace what we do overnight but it is a big advance.”
BP is currently measured in the arm because it is convenient. However, this may not always accurately reflect what the pressure is in the larger arteries close to the heart.
The new technology uses a sensor on the wrist to record the pulse wave and then, using computerized modeling of the pulse wave, scientists are able to accurately read the pressure close to the heart.
Being able to measure BP in the aorta, which is closer to the heart and brain, is important because this is where high BP can cause damage.
Besides, the pressure in the aorta can be quite different from that traditionally measured in the arm.
This will be especially important for younger people in whom the pressure measured in the arm can sometimes be quite exaggerated compared to the pressure in the aorta.
