No Sex Required: Body Cells Transfer Genetic Info Directly Into Sperm Cells, Amazing Study Finds

exosomes_genetic_informationA revolutionary new study reveals that the core tenet of classical genetics is patently false, and by implication: what we do in this life — our diet, our mindset, our chemical exposures — can directly impact the DNA and health of future generations.

A paradigm shifting new Continue reading

Biophotons: The Human Body Emits, Communicates with, and is Made from Light

Biophotons: The Human Body Emits, Communicates with, and is Made from LightIncreasingly science agrees with the poetry of direct human experience:  we are more than the atoms and molecules that make up our bodies, but beings of light as well. Biophotons are emitted by the human body, can be released through mental intention, Continue reading

Herbal Medicine Alters Genes, Cell Mitosis and Epigenome

Herbal Medicine Alters Genes, Cell Mitosis and EpigenomeGenetics researchers from Taiwan’s National Central University have determined that over a third of herbal medicines used in Traditional Chinese Medicine  – and nearly all leading therapeutic herbs – alter our genes or Continue reading

Greater Lifetime Pesticide Use Causes Telomere Shortening

telomere_lengthResearchers from Northwestern University’s School of Medicine have determined that the use of certain pesticides over a lifetime produces a shortening of chromosome telomeres.

The researchers tested 1,234 men as part of a study of 57,310 licensed pesticide contractors – from the Agricultural Health Study, orchestrated by the National Cancer Institute, Continue reading

Report: Many Urban Tap Water Systems Loaded with SSRI Antidepressant Drugs

tapwaterAs you may recall, the Associated Press (AP) released the results of a groundbreaking investigation it conducted back in 2008 concerning the presence of pharmaceutical drugs in the water supply. In this report, it was revealed that at least 41 million Americans are exposed daily to tap water containing Continue reading

GE Crops and Unsustainable Agricultural Practices are Destroying our Planet’s Soil and Food Supply

Story at-a-glance

  • Genetically engineered crops and food products pose a threat to your health, resistance to disease, soil, and the global food supply
  • GE seed wars in India have resulted in a group of Indian scientists being found guilty of infecting and hiding the fact that indigenously created Bt cotton contained a Monsanto gene in a rush to get the seed to market Continue reading

Breast Milk Contains More than 700 Bacteria

Microbes taken from breast milk by the infant are identified

Spanish researchers have traced the bacterial microbiota map in breast milk, which is the main source of nourishment for newborns. Continue reading

A New Genetic Fingerprint Lives in your Belly

Our bodies contain far more microbial genes than human genes. And a new study suggests that just as human DNA varies from person to person, so too does the massive collection of microbial DNA in the intestine.

The research is the first to catalog the genetic variation of microbes that live in the gut, where they extract nutrients from food, synthesize vitamins, protect against infections, and produce compounds that naturally reduce inflammation. The widespread genetic diversity uncovered by the scientists can help Continue reading

New Study Shows How Copper Restricts the Spread of Global Antibiotic-Resistant Infections

New research from the University of Southampton has shown that copper can prevent horizontal transmission of genes, which has contributed to the increasing number of antibiotic-resistant infections worldwide.

Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) in bacteria is largely responsible for the development of Continue reading

Extensive Study Shows Green Tea May Help Prevent Cancer

Green tea has long been linked to cancer prevention. And, a new health breakthrough has found that women who drink green tea may have a reduced risk of certain digestive system cancers-especially those in the stomach, esophagus, and colorectum.

In a recent study, researchers surveyed women in a large population study Continue reading

Aspartame Associated with Increased Risk of Blood Cancers in Long-Term Human Study

Story at-a-glance

  • The longest ever human aspartame study, spanning 22 years, found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia in men
  • Leukemia was associated with diet soda intake in both sexes
  • The study was done out of Harvard but after caving to pressure from industry, a press release was issued that minimized the impact of the study
  • The long-term nature of this study is crucial as one of the primary tricks companies use to hide Continue reading

How Switching on a Certain Enzyme Can Help You Live Longer and Healthier Well into the Age of 100 and Beyond

Centenarians used to be a novelty: Reaching the 100-year mark was a feat not many accomplished. Nowadays, centarians are celebrated, but certainly no longer a rarity. The UN estimates that by 2013, 3,000,000 people will be enjoying their second century! The record is set at 122 years old…

Advancements in medicine and technology have allowed us to stretch the limits of our maximum Continue reading

When You Peel an Orange, Don’t Throw Away the White Part Under the Skin: Bioflavonoids Help Fight Cancer and Obesity

Citrus fruits have long had a reputation for high concentrations of healthful nutrients such as vitamin C, and recent research continues to uncover new health benefits from many citrus flavonoids. Although the flavonoids are abundant within the fruit itself, they are found in highest concentration in the peel — which means that unless you’re cooking with citrus peel or zest, the best way to get the full antioxidant punch is to eat a bit of the tart, white flesh on the inside of the fruit’s peel.

One of the most promising of these flavonoids is naringenin, which occurs in all citrus fruits and in tomato peel. Continue reading
